Edition 1543for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comJuly 26, through August 1, 2013Community News Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune By Jason SchwartzA longtime member of the Boca Raton Synagogue was named in a sex abuse lawsuit filed by 24 alumni of the Yeshiva University high school in New York who alleged that staffers at the prestigious Jewish institution molested them, the Boca Raton Tribune has learned. The students filed the 148-page bombshell $380 million lawsuit in U.S. District Court in White Plains on Monday, July 8 claiming the school had covered up decades of sexual and physical abuse by two rabbis and a youth volunteer in the 1970s and 1980s. The suit alleges that Richard Andron, a former Y.U. student who now lives in Boca Raton, was allowed to visit the high school dormitory even though staff knew he was a threat to children. Two former high school students say Andron abused them after befriending them in the dormitory, according to the suit. Neither Andron nor officials with the Boca Raton Synagogue could be reached for comment. The abuse took a terrible toll on students, according to the lawsuit. Many have suffered from depression, anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, drug and alcohol abuse, sexual addiction, emotional distress, broken marriages, and problems holding down a job. Some have spent years in counseling and on medication. I am proud to represent these 19 men. They are entitled to the respect, dignity and justice which was denied to them when they were children, said Kevin Mulhearn, a lawyer representing the victims. We are looking forward to prosecuting these claims. One of the plaintiffs, Barry Singer of New York, said it was necessary to file the suit because there was no proper response from Yeshiva University to any of their claims or pain. They just wouldnt listen, he said. Singer said of his decision to reveal his name in the lawsuit: I dont have anything to hide. The only power in what has been for 40 years a horribly powerless situation is that I can stand up for myself. Y.U. said in a statement that it would not comment on ongoing litigation. The suit claims that Y.U. administrators engaged in a prolonged fraud by portraying two of the principal molesters as trustworthy men of exemplary character, despite multiple warnings that the men sexually abused boys. Both men were honored by Y.U. after they left the school and, until recently, Y.U. awarded scholarships in each of their names. Mulhearn alleges that Y.U.s former students had no way of knowing that others had been similarly abused or that Y.U. had failed to heed multiple complaints of the abuse until the revelations were first published in December 2012. The two men, Rabbi George Finkelstein, a high school administrator who rose to principal, and Rabbi Macy Gordon, a Talmud teacher, had a propensity to sexually abuse children yet they were allowed to remain on staff, the suit alleges. This report was supplemented by information New York Daily News.Boca Raton man Named in Bombshell sex Abuse Lawsuit By Tamiyha ThompsonRobin Barkes, a local high school teacher, can now connect her curriculum to real-world applications after a recent behind-the-scenes look at the launch of a major United States military satellite and the construction of the next spacecraft designed to take humans to deep space. The trip was phenomenal, Barkes who teaches 9th grade at FAU High School, said after the two-day trip. The launch of the U.S. Navy satellite was absolutely amazing. We watched it launch on a rooftop. We saw it smoke and we felt the sound. She was among six early career middle and high school science teachers from Florida and Colorado who participated in the New Science Teacher Academy Fellows for Military Satellite Launch and Human Spaceflight Program Tour on the weekend of July 19. Lockheed Martin partnered with the National Science Teachers Association to provide early career educators with deep exposure to the newest advancements in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields and mentoring opportunities from practicing professionals. The teachers called Lockheed Martin-NSTA Fellows were part of the 2012-2013 NSTA New Science Teacher Academy that provided novice science teachers with professional development opportunities to strengthen content knowledge, enhance teaching skills and build confidence to provide quality science instruction to students in the classroom. Lockheed Martin understands and values the importance of providing training and resources to teachers so they are better equipped to teach the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians, said Emily Simone, Lockheed Martins director of Community Relations. We are proud to be a part of this program and excited to provide some realworld examples of science and engineering in action. Barkes spent Thursday, July 18 and Friday, July 19, getting an up-close look at a Cape Canaveral U.S. Air Force Stations launch pad. She watched the launch of the U.S. Navys second Mobile User Objective System satellite the latest advancement of manned spaceflight, the Orion MultiPurpose Crew Vehicle Operation and Lockheed Martin management and representatives of the U.S. Navy to gain a better understanding of the skills required of next generation space scientists and engineers. We were treated like V.I.Ps with so much respect, she said. Barkes said she was really, really excited, when she got a call saying that had been one of six chosen to witness the launch of the Navys latest satellite. The other Lockheed MartinNSTA Fellows participating were: teacher at South Fork High School in Stuart teaches 7thth grade at Liberty Pines Academy in St. Johns teacher at Terry Parker Senior High School in Jacksonville teaches 9thth grade at St. Petersburg High School, St. Petersburg at STEM Launch School, Thornton, Colo. Lockheed Martin knows that to prepare students for success in a science and technologydriven workforce, teachers must be provided with opportunities to gain greater exposure and learn themselves, Evans said. These types of mentoring and networking relationships between working scientists and science teachers can dramatically improve how science is taught and learned. Applications for the 2013-2014 New Science Teacher Academy are being accepted through August 26, 2013. Science teachers entering their second through fifth year of teaching and whose schedule is a minimum of 51 percent middle or high school science, are encouraged to apply.

Boca Regional Names Volunteer of the MonthBy Carol Lewis Special to the Boca Raton TribuneFlorida Atlantic Universitys Recorded Sound Archives hopes to digitize sound and restore images from 786 vintage kiddie records that were flooded in October 2012 following Hurricane Sandy. The records, produced between 1920 and 1958, were in a Long Island storage facility owned by Peter Muldavin, the worlds leading expert on American vintage childrens records, when the storm hit. Muldavin, also known as the Kiddie Rekord King, donated the water-damaged records to the RSA, which collects, organizes and protects access to digitized copies of vintage audio recordings at the Wimberly Library on FAUs Boca Raton campus. Mr. Muldavin understood our unique qualifications in this area and presented us with both a challenge and an opportunity, said Maxine Schackman, the RSAs director. We are excited to be working with such rare and wonderful artifacts from the 20th century. I cant wait to see the reaction when we are able to share our work online. The paper covers of many of the records feature beautiful artwork, story books and paper doll cut-outs that are being discarded because of mildew and mold. These are being preserved digitally and restored to original condition with the use of Adobe Photoshop. Some of the records are warped and many are encrusted with mud and require hand washing. To help with the restoration, the RSA has purchased a vinyl record flattener, a device that slowly heats the recording between heavy metal plates. This is the most extensive restoration for the RSA, which has been restoring phonograph recordings for more than a decade. The digital images and music files from the records are expected to be available through RSAs passwordprotected Research Station by January 2014.FAU Works to Restore Images From Records Damaged in Hurricane Sandy

Shultz then founded his soccer academy in Fort Lauderdale in the 90s. The soccer academy has seen talents run constant through the youth ranks, most notably USMNT star player, and Boca Raton product Jozy Altidore. At a young age it was evident that Altidore had a natural talent as he would toy with children at the local parks. Schulz took note of Altidore when he was 8 years old while Altidore was playing a pickup game at Bocas South County Regional Park and Schultz was amazed. Shultz took Altidore under his wings and Altidore flourished and is currently playing with EPL-side Sunderland. Josef Schulz meant so much to me and so many people, said Altidore via social media. He was a teacher, a leader, and like a father to so many young kids. We are all so lucky to have known him. Words cant express how devastated I am. Barbra and Markus I love you both and my prayers are with you. RIP Josef Schulz.ObituariesThe Boca Raton Tribune By Zackery Macdonald BOYNTON BEACH, FL Rev. Lance Chaney, the firebrand pastor of St. John Missionary Baptist Church in Boynton Beach, has died after an extended illness. He was 56. Rev. Chaney, who had been battling prostate cancer, died Sunday, July 21. My heart is saddened by St. Johns great loss, Tamara Wilbur wrote on the churchs Facebook site. Pastor Chaney used to say absent from the body, present with the Lord. May God lighten your sorrow, and keep you strong with the knowledge that Pastor Chaney is still present in spirit. It was a true honor and privilege to have heard his anointed sermons. I thank our Heavenly Father for that opportunity. Heaven must certainly be happy right now having such a wonderful spirit at the Pearly Gates. A native of Rock Island, Ill., Mr. Chaney took the helm as the seventh pastor of the 104-year-old church in 2002 after the death of the previous leader of 42 years, Rev. R.M. Lee. Rev. Chaney had served as the pastor of the Greater Antioch Baptist Church of Rock Island for 18 years. Under his leadership, the church expanded its services, added a Teen Bible Study, established the church newsletter and founded a K-5 charter school, Day Star Academy of Excellence. The church also opened a preschool earlier this year and future plans include a family resource center. His parishioners loved and respected him as their spiritual leader. He was recognized in Boynton Beach and the surrounding areas as a man who put his community before himself and proved to be a man whose personality was embraced by all. You felt like you could accomplish anything after speaking with Reverend Chaney, an emotional Joi Odom Grant, the granddaughter of Rev. Lee, said. She noted his extraordinary hope for all people and generations to come. The community of Boynton has truly lost a great leader today, Odom Grant said with a heavy heart. Rev. Chaney was also civic-minded. In the eve of the historic presidential election in 2008, he wanted to make sure every member of his congregation and his community had the chance to vote. He urged city and county leaders to work together to open an earlyvoting location in the city so they didnt have to drive five miles west to vote. Early-polling spots lined the western fringes of developed Palm Beach County, but voters living east of Interstate 95 from southern Lake Worth to Delray Beach in the densely populated and heavily minority neighborhoods had to drive at least a 5-mile to a voting site. Having one in eastern Boynton Beach would be far more convenient than going to Gun Club Road or way out to Jog Road, he told them, referring to the main Supervisor of Elections Office and the West Boynton Branch Library, adding that the neglected areas lean Democratic whether by design or by coincidence. We feel that all voters should have the opportunity to vote early, regardless of their affiliation, he said. Because this is a historic election, the turnout is going to be astronomical, he said. We have too many seniors who cannot wait in those long lines or who have no faith in the absentee voting process. Mr. Chaney discovered his cancer during a routine check in June 2008. I think whenever you hear the word cancer you think about mortality and your faith steps in, he said shortly after delivering his first sermon following his diagnosis in September 2008. Its been a wonderful experience for me. It helped me find the importance of my family and the strength of my faith. He became a crusader for colon, prostate and breast cancer testing and offered health screenings and testing at the church. Survivors include his wife, Marilane and three children, Alex, Ashley and Allison.Rev. Lance Chaney, 56, Beloved, Respected Spiritual
8 -Edition 154 July 26, through August 1, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher Business C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer Palm Beach County has lost a champion with the passing of the Rev. Lance Chaney. I find myself questioning god as I do quite often these days why did he have to call home so many of my dear friends so soon? But then, Im reminded that it is not mans plan, but gods will. After all, we all are on loan for just a while. I had the pleasure of meeting Bro. Chaney shortly after he arrived in town in June 2002. One of his parishioners and a dear friend told me that he was a member of my fraternity. So I made it my duty to meet him within days. He was so excited to meet me and we had lunch at one of my favorite local dining establishments. Weve been friends since. He has spoken to my mentoring program at both Atlantic High and Village Academy on numerous occasions. And among the things I admired about him was his ability to make everyone feel comfortable. He was a peoples preacher. The students could relate to him although he was a pastor. He spoke to them from a biblical perspective but he broke it down to where each student understood the purpose of his or her existence. He was clear, insightful and persuasive but not loud. He was gentle. That is the way he was as a man and as a pastor. He was a visionary and it was in his DNA to help those with less means. Before taking the helm at St. John, he led the flock at Greater Antioch Baptist Church of Rock Island, Illinois for 18 years. There he helped establish a health clinic and bookstore. He served on the school board, the NAACP Board of Directors and more. He started the Quad-City Wide Church Softball League, the Hoop In The Hood 3-on3 basketball tournament and Double Dutch contest. He also formed A Place For Us Ministry to help biracial families develop and grow in the worship services. He changed lives, he won souls for Christ. And he attracted hundreds of new worshipers. So when he moved his family to Boynton Beach, he didnt slow down. It was not in this husband and father of three to coast. Unlike many, he practiced what he preached. He quickly immersed in the fiber of the community, serving as speaker and panelist at civic events. He was active in supporting the Save Darfur Coalition and The Haiti Relief efforts, he served on the Correction Task Force for the Criminal Justice Commission of Palm Beach County and on the boards of Genesis Community Health, Inc., and the citys Community Redevelopment Agency. He was chairman of Pathways to Prosperity (the churchs non-profit rehabilitation center) and Day Star Academy of Excellence, among other community endeavors. His congregation grew from about 800 to 3,000. In October 2007, he started the churchs prayer circles and Jericho Marches to reclaim his neighborhood and rid it, little by little, of drug dealing, shootings and other crimes. Church members marched twice weekly, met and reached out to addicts and homeless people they found on the streets around the church before services on Wednesday nights and after services Sunday mornings. He did this back in his hometown of Rock Island as his childhood friend, Troy F. Bland, knows quite well. I knew Pastor when he was just Lance coming to the baseball park during the summers in the s watching us play baseball, Bland told me recently. He is my older sisters age. (I believe he was a graduate of the class of 1975). But although being a few years older than myself, I only remember him being supportive to all of the younger ball players. After recovery from drug abuse, Bland wrote a play for a neighboring church and Rev. Chaney asked him to do the same for Easter at Antioch. It was great and during the production rehearsals and time spent, I grew to know that he had a genuine heart for God, said Bland, who now works in the information technology field and lives in Colorado. Our relationship became great as he kept me busy during a critical time in my recovery, allowing me to get past the roughest stage. I am blessed to know him before and during his calling. I do believe that he did make changes to this world for the better. Indeed he did. When gun violence crippled the city some years ago, he was pivotal in putting together a rally. He called for the arrests of the shooters and he instilled hope. He was the voice of reason the community needed to hear. We all have a race to run and Pastor Chaney finished his course, said Vice Mayor Woodrow Hay who is also on the ministerial staff at St. John. We are better because of him. He represented many, especially after he was first diagnosed with prostate cancer during a routine check in June 2008. I recalled him telling me how wonderful the experience was and how it helped him find the importance of his family and the strength of his faith. And even then, he wanted to help. I need to be a voice for those who have the disease and are fearful, he said. My brother, I need to let them know theres hope, that it is not a death sentence. Our technology has come a long way and when I connect it to my faith, it gives me strength to survive. Thats the kind of person my brother and friend was. As one of his parishioners and good friend said recently, You felt like you could accomplish anything after speaking with Reverend Chaney. He gave hope to the hopeless.Even in Death, my Friend Gave Hope to the Hopeless.
Edition 1549for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comJuly 26, through August 1, 2013 EDITORIALS & LETTERS By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING world, having received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER I just came across this expressive statement: Kindness is just love with its work boots on. It quickly reminded me that kindness is increasingly seldom noticed among fellow humans. At the same time, love needs redefinition, for the ideas people have of it today fail to resemble its noblest and most mature reality! Ultimately, its not the boots, shoes, or plain bear feet that will make any difference. True love can usually impacts its objects indelibly, wherever such beneficiaries may reside! Nevertheless, its very true that kindness is usually an expression of love, whether such love is only momentarily expressed, or it will be extended into greater dimensions for the sake of the objects of the kindness. People need a greater sensitivity to the way world events, regional or national tragedies, personal grief, and other impacting occurrences affect fellow humans everywhere. Instead of thinking only of themselves, individuals should reflect on the positive reactions a friendly word, a kind comment, a polite demonstration can achieve among worrying and hurrying fellow citizens. The objects of human kindness need not be only people we know. Of course, they need to remain on the list of its candidates. Its often people we dont know and may never see again, that could also benefit from our kind words and actions. If you decide to become indiscriminately kind to others, this quality will flow spontaneously from your being toward others who will benefit from your words and actions. You may not receive immediate responses but the effect shall always be positive! As Dr. James R. Kok expresses in one of his books on this subject, people are thankful for acts of kindness, no matter how little.Make Progress at the Necessary Speed!By Robert TamasyDo you remember when customer service was a hallmark of good business? Retailers like J.C. Penney and Sam Walton understood their customers were their greatest asset and set about determining how to serve their needs. Somehow that philosophy seems to have gotten lost in the 21st century. There was a time when sales people could be annoying, hovering over potential buyers, but these days it is almost requires a search party to find a sales associate when needed. Even to make a purchase, often you must trudge across the store to find someone at a cash register to take your payment. Several weeks ago I bought a costly light bulb to replace one that had burned out above our stove. Last week that replacement bulb burned out. So I went to the name brand hardware store and exchanged it for another. When I got home, however, I opened the sealed package only to find the new bulb cracked in three places. So I returned to nationally known hardware store again and bought another bulb that had no cracks. But this one did not work either. Judging from the noise it made when jiggled, something inside was broken. It took me three trips to obtain a functioning replacement bulb. Then the national newspaper I subscribe to delivered every morning with the local daily paper failed to arrive. I called the circulation department, received the obligatory I apologize and Im sorry, and was assured the periodical would be delivered by 3 p.m. It never arrived! We often read about the retail industrys woes, citing declining sales and often blaming purchases made online rather than in stores. Is that any surprise, when retail institutions have reduced customer service to virtually nothing and we can receive as much personalized attention on the Internet? Penney and Walton built their businesses on genuine interest and concern for their customers, making certain they felt valued and needed. They were men of faith, motivated by biblical passages like do to others what you would have them do to you (Matthew 7:12), and Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others (Philippians 2:34). Modern-day business, casting aside the foundation of a biblical worldview, chooses a short-term, profit-centered approach. Customers often feel treated like cattle rather than keys for survival in a cut-throat, highly competitive marketplace. God actually set the best example. He took a customer service attitude when He sought to reconcile rebellious humankind to Himself. Romans 5:8 says, But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. And Jesus declared in Mark 10:45,For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. If that is not the ultimate in customer service, what is?

The crime was called in by a witness. The witness told police he was taking out the trash when he noticed that the interior light of his neighbors blue Dodge van was illuminated. As he looked closer, the witness saw a male walk away from the van, light a cigarette and walk between several cars. As the witness continued to watch, he observed the suspect open the drivers door and go inside the Dodge. The witness called 911 and watched as the suspect got out of the van and entered a white Jeep. The suspect got out of the Jeep as police arrived on scene. Officers approached the suspect, identified as Logan Yannie. The witness identified Yannie as the male he saw in the cars. Officers located the owners of the two vehicles and determined that coins were taken. Yannie, who was holding a Styrofoam containing coins, told officers he was cutting through the parking lot on his way home. Yannie denied going inside any cars, but couldnt explain why he was carrying so many coins. Officers also found three pairs of headphones and an 80 GB iPod in his possession.By Jake BeckerTwo teens from Broward County were arrested for allegedly breaking into a house to get cash to buy insurance for a car they had just bought, police said. Deandre Newsome and Richardo Lagueere were charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling and possession of burglary tools in the July 18th incident. The crime happened shortly before 11 a.m. in the 1600 block of SW 17th Street. A resident was home with her two young children when she heard a car pull into the driveway, according to a police report. Seconds later she heard her doorbell ring and before she could answer, the person on the other side smashed the glass pane on the door, the report continued. When the suspects realized that someone was inside the home, they fled in the car they had just bought. The homeowner called the police almost immediately and gave them a description if the car, a gold sedan, police said. An officer on the tactical team saw a gold Pontiac Grand heading east on SW 18th Street. When the suspects noticed the police cars behind them, they pulled into a driveway and allowed the cars to pass. Once the police cars were gone, they continued heading east on SW 18th Street. They however pulled into another driveway and evaded police when they saw more police cars, police said. Again, the pair began travelling east on SW 18th Street when an officer stopped them. The teens confessed to the burglary and told their reason for the crime. When exiting the car, the driver, Lagueere, had a pair of gloves hanging out of his front pocket along with a window punch. The passenger, Newsome, told officers he also had a punch in his pocket. During questioning, Newsome told officers they were in the area looking for a house to rent. Lagueere added that they came to look for jobs. Lagueere had fresh blood on one of his hands and when asked how the injury happened, he said his pet lizard bit him. Both eventually admitted they came to break into homes in the area. Lagueere said he just purchased the car and couldnt afford the insurance. Thieves Steal Cigarettes, Cash From 2 Boca Convenience Stores 8 Minutes ApartBy Jake Becker Thieves broke into two convenience stores in the city just hours apart recently, police said. No arrests have been made in the July 16 burglaries at the Kwik Stops. In the first burglary, someone called police shortly before 2 a.m. after noticing the shattered door of the Kwik Stop, 300 W. Camino Real, police said. The store owner said the thieves stole 50 cartons of cigarettes and an unknown amount of money. While officers were responding Stop, they noticed that another convenience store at 1300 NW 7th St., had just been burglarized. r fr ntbbttntb rffnftbbf ftfbffff f rfntbftEXTREMEfrrr Officers met with the complainant, who said that sometime between 10:15 a.m. and 12:45 p.m. her teenage nephew was sleeping in one of the bedrooms and awoke to find two unknown males inside the home. When the suspects saw the teenager they fled. Several rooms were ransacked and a glass pane from a rear French door was broken. There were blood droplets on the glass pane and a bloody shirt was found inside the home. In addition to the broken pane of glass, officers found pry marks on the door and on a window. Several latent prints were recovered by the crime scene technician. Numerous laptops, two iPhones, an iPad, jewelry and keys were taken. On Wednesday, the case was assigned to a Boca Raton detective who met with the complainant and her nephew, spoke with the neighbors, and met with the Boca Raton Latent Fingerprint Technician (LFT). LFT Neitz identified two latent prints from the crime scene as belonging to a juvenile, Dorrian Gray. On Thursday, detectives were on their way to speak with Gray at his home when they saw him walking in his neighborhood. Gray agreed to accompany the detectives to the Police Department. Gray, who is on probation for previous burglaries, told detectives he had not been in Boca Raton in several months. When he was told his fingerprints were found at the scene of the crime, he said someone must have stolen his prints and DNA. Gray had several cuts on his hands and gave no reasonable explanation as to how he got the injuries. Detectives charged Gray with burglary to an occupied dwelling, grand theft, and criminal mischief. The investigation is on-going. If anyone has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective Brandon Harding at (561) 620-6229.

Blackfish is the name fishermen call Orca or killer whales. Florida has two marine parks that feature Orcas on display. Miami Seaquarium is the oldest marine attraction in Florida (opened in 1955) and home to Lolita, the oldest Orca in captivity. Director and co-writer (with Eli B. Despres) Gabriela Cowperthwaite focuses on SeaWorld in Orlando and one killer whale in particular, the star attraction called Tilikum. Tilikum has lived up to the name killer whale. He has killed three humans while in captivity. The most shocking example was on Feb. 24 2010, when experienced 40-yearold trainer Dawn Brancheau, while in playful post-show bonding with Tilikum, was pulled underwater by her ponytail and shaken violently. She was killed before the eyes of the shocked audience. It is ironic that it took the death of a human, especially one who loved Orcas deeply, to focus attention not only on the dangers of interacting with the massive carnivorous marine mammals, but also on the psychological implications of captivity for creatures who were born to roam the seas freely. Put simply Orcas are a lot like human beings. They feel and have emotions. Like humans they can get neurotic and even psychotic. Gabriela Cowperthwaite was inspired by a story in Outside magazine, The Killer in the Pool, by Tom Zimmerman. Zimmerman endorsed this project so far as to sign on as an associate producer. Nearly a dozen former trainers and Orca experts are interviewed and archival footage of two deceased trainers is shown to create the story thread. We learn that Tilikum was already a big guy when he was captured at age 2 in 1983 in the North Atlantic. He was already 11-and-a-half feet long. Male Orcas can grow to more than 30-foot long and weigh over eight tons. Females are smaller and tend to be more docile. You might wonder why a confirmed killer like Tilikum is still at SeaWorld. The answer is simple: new generations of performing Orcas are being bred in captivity. That may make them safer, but in the view of those interviewed it is still psychological damaging for mammals designed to swim 100 miles in a day in communities called pods to be confined to a small tank. Some of the Orcas injure themselves or die in their frustration. Some of the footage is hard to handle. An Orca bleeds like you or me. The sight of baby Orcas being captured and separated from their mothers is heartbreaking. When I was a child we visited the Miami Seaquarium. I thought it was really cool. After seeing Blackfish and previous Orca-friendly movies Namu the Killer Whale and Free Willy, I dont think it is so cool. I have never visited SeaWorld, and now I know I never will.

July 26, through August 1, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 154 Section B Entertainment Skip Sheffield By Skip Sheffield It has taken James Cromwell a lifetime to work his way up to the lead role of Craig Morrison, the care-giving hero of Still Mine. The Samuel Goldwyn Film, which debuted at Miami International Film Festival, opens locally July 26 at Living Room Theaters in Boca Raton and the Movies of Delray. Cromwell was nominated for an Academy award for best supporting actor in Babe. This film could put him up for the big prize. Both Cromwell and writerdirector Michael McGowan visited Miami earlier this year to promote Still Mine. The screenplay is based of a real-life case in Canada that McGowan read about in the Toronto Globe and Mail. The long and short of it was at age 88, Craig Morrison decided to build a new, improved house for him and his wife, who was becoming increasingly incapacitated by dementia. Irene Morrison is played by French-Canadian movie star Genevieve Bujold, still lovely in older age. Both Cromwell, who is now 73, and Bujold, 71, play older than their real ages. Like the real Craig Morrison, James Cromwell is a tall, strapping, rugged man befitting an individual who was always selfreliant and self-sufficient, farming and raising seven children on a piece of paradise in New Brunswick. If you have ever had a problem with building inspectors or code enforcement, you will relate to the character of Craig Morrison. He built the house from lumber he had sawed himself from trees on his property. Morrison wanted to finish the project as quickly and efficiently as possible, but there was a fatal flaw in his plan. He did not apply for the proper building permits required by the National Building Code of Canada. Morrison was advised by his lawyer (Campbell Scott) that he had better ante up the $400 building fee. Morrison paid up, but he had rankled the by-the-book government building inspector (Jonathan Potts) The war of nerves continued as Morrison wracked up violations (26 in all) and Irenes condition deteriorated. Morrisons daughter Ruth (Julie Stewart) and friendly neighbor Chester (George R. Robertson) urged Morrison to throw in the towel, but Craig was a strong and stubborn man. By this time the government had issued an order to demolish the house. Through it all Morrison remained dedicated to his failing wife. Its a love story at its core, said McGowan in Miami. I met Irene in the latter stages of dementia, but she seemed beautiful and happy. She finally had a room with a view. Funny and inspirational, Still Mine is a moving tribute to real love. P.S. Craig Morrison died two weeks prior to the Miami opening. He was 93.

Edition 154 B3Section B July 26, through August 1, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com A Fine Fondue Bistro The Melting Pot Food Review Marc Kent There are 4 Melting Pot Restaurants in South Florida we visited Boca Raton with Chris Stein as manager. For the Cooktop at Tablethere are 5 cheese styles to choose from: 1. Aged 80% Cheddar and 20% Emmenthaler Swiss in lager beer, garlic and seasoningsserved with artisan breads and seasonal vegetables non descript taste, unfortunately. 2. Then, traditional Swiss and Emmenthaler in white wine, garlic, nutmeg and lemon with Kirschwasser-mild flavor, not robust at all. 3. Followed by Wisconsin trio of Fontina, Butterkase and Buttermilk Bleu with white wine, shallots and a hint of sherry nice tasting flavors. 4. The spinach artichoke contains Fontina and Butterkase and garlic-too much garlic for us. 5. Lastly, the Fiesta has Cheddar with lager beer, jalapeno peppers and salsa-spice as per personal taste, mild medium or hot. Ordered mild, it was ok, medium was tangy, hot was too spicy to get any real cheese taste. There are four salads, a Caesar, a California, a spinach and a mushroom and house style. Regarding the salads, the Caesar had a very light dressing with little flavor. The house salad with either peppercorn ranch fine tasting-or the tangy house also fine tasting. The spinach mushroom was excellent with its Burgundy shallot vinaigrette dressing, then finally, the California salad was delicious with its raspberry black walnut vinaigrette. There is a 4 course experience which features cheese fondue, a salad and any of 10 entrees then dessert. We selected from 10 entrees offered. We chose to test: Filet Mignon (done by us medium rare) Teriyaki marinated sirloin (done medium) Honey duck breast Chicken w/ginger plum sauce Lobster tail BBQ pork medallions Mahi Mahi Of the four dipping pots offered, we chose two the court bouillon and the cog au vin liquids! Each item had been cut into bite size pieces for us to spear with our fondue forks and place into a bowl dipping pot. A couple of minutes there and we had cooked tidbits. Each and every food item was top quality and we were able, by trial and error, to judge each items cooking time. Charlene, Joyce and this reviewer enjoyed the entrees immensely and had a great experience in tasting so many flavors. The desserts feature the Melting Posts own special melted chocolate for dipping. We chose the Flaming Turtle milk chocolate, caramel and candied pecans and also the Original-mild chocolate with creamy, crunchy peanut butter. Also, available: pure chocolate (milk, dark or white), chocolate smores, cookies and cream, bananas foster style. All the above served with strawberries, bananas, cubed cheesecake, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies! This was the delicious highlight of the evening! There are 10 coffees and after dinner drink specialties, 10 dessert wines and 10 cordials plus 6 each of scotches and brandies. There is an extensive wine, cocktail and beer roster. Offered are 8 sparkling, 6 sweet wind/blush, 5 chardonnays and 6 additional whites. 5 cabernets, 8 pinot noir/ merlots and 14 other reds, most can be ordered by glass, split and bottle. 17 special cocktails and 20 beers-domestic and imports complete the list of liberations. The Melting Pot is open 7 days-Sunday through Thursday from 4PM to 10PM, Friday and Saturday until 11PM (561-9977472). It seats 150 diners in a cozy atmosphere with a set menu and occasional Chefs specials. There is a gluten free menu and also a kids menu, a nice touch. Established here in 1992, its an enjoyable dining experience for couples or groups. We suggest youGo and Enjoy!Murray Mouse Childrens Corner Caleb Lucas Once upon a time there was a mouse named Murray. He didnt believe in God. He believed in a mouse god that wasnt real. His friend Bernie did believe in God. I really wish you would come to know God as your personal friend and savior, said Bernie. No, replied Murray. Please, said Bernie again. No, said Murray once more. But I want to see you in Heaven someday, said Bernie. Uhg, Im going to go to my hole, Murray said. Fine, but just remember that you can always call out to God in your time of need, said Bernie. Im sorry Bernie, but I just cant, said Murray. Ok, I wont force you. Youve made your decision, said Bernie very sadly. (Groan,) goes Murray. One day Murray was in his hole and he wanted some cheese. Hmm. Im hungry. How about some cheese? He looked into the fridge and there was no cheese. Oh no, theres no cheese, he said. Oh well, Ill go to the store and buy some more. Let me go get some money from my piggy bank. Oh no, theres no money in my piggy bank. I cant believe it. Im broke, I have no food, and Im hungry. Oh, why? All of a sudden he thought of something Bernie mentioned a few days back. If you believe in the Lord he will provide anything you will ever need. Uhhh, ok, If I have to. He then got down on his knees and prayed. Dear Lord, I want to know you, I want you to come into my life, I want you to change me, and I want you to come into my heart. I am a sinner and I need you. Amen. All of a sudden his doorbell rang. Huh? he said confused. He opened the door and saw a basket that had been laid on his front porch. I wonder what this is, he asked himself. It was a basket full of cheese and money. Oh, wow! I cant believe it! Also inside the basket was an envelope with a note inside of it. It said this: Thanks for finally listening to me and Bernie. Enjoy the gift. -Your close friend, God. Oh thank you, Lord. Bernie was right. You do provide everything we need. He then went off to tell Bernie what had happened, and that he had become a Christian. In the Mount of the Lord it shall be provided. (Gen. 22:14b NKJV) As you can clearly see, God will provide always. God will ever be with you, if you allow him, that is. He cares about you. He wants to provide for you. The thing is, you need to let him provide for you by believing in him and his son. He will provide for you if you let him. Sort of like the story of Murray Mouse. Well you get it, God cares about you. With sincere regards from your friend, Caleb.

Why The Sabbath Is Not A Religious IdeaDIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora Trayvon Martin, Meets George ZimmermanOur great-grandfathers called it But today we simply refer to it as, the weekend. Do you feel rested after a typical weekend? If you are like most people, probably not. A friend of mine accuses me of behaving as if I were a human doing instead of a human being. We live in a world in which most of us understand exceptionally well how to work hard and play hard, but it seems that we have forgotten how to rest. The word Sabbath literally means, REST. God provided the pattern for rest in His list of values to live by in Exodus 20. We know them as the Ten Commandments. Fourth on the list is the admonition to observe the Sabbath as a holy day. But the seventh day is a day of Sabbath rest before the Lord your God (Exodus 20:10). In His wisdom, God understood that given the opportunity, mankind would work itself to death or play and entertain itself to death but never recognize the importance of pausing to replenish our energies and reinvigorate our spirits. So He incorporated the command to rest in His top 10 rules for living. Every seventh day, from Gods perspective the point of view of the Creator should be set aside for: 1. REST: Frederick Taylor was an ambitious young executive in a large steel mill during the SpanishAmerican war in the 1890s. In those days, there were no cranes to load steel bars onto the railroad cars. It was backbreaking manual labor. Taylor instituted a system where a whistle was blown after the men had carried iron for 12 minutes. They then were to sit down and rest. After three-minute rest, the whistle was blown again as a signal for the men to resume work. The result? The amount of iron loaded per day increased by an amazing 276 percent! Rather than wasting time, the required rest actually multiplied efficiency and productivity. 2. REFLECTION: A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead goes blindly on and suffers the consequences (Proverbs 22:3). How can you know where you want to go unless you take time to look back on where youve been, realistically assess where you are, and then develop a plan that will take you where you want to go? Were you successful this past week in your work? In your marriage? As a father? In your personal life? Are you staying fit physically? How are you doing emotionally, or intellectually, or spiritually? We cannot even start to answer these questions if we continue to plunge into our daily activities, without giving ourselves the opportunity to pause and reflect on what we are doing and why. 3. RESTORATION: No battery will last for very long without being recharged. Elastic will lose its resiliency and strength unless it is allowed to return to its un-stretched state. Human beings are much the same. We need the stress of work, exercise, and pressure to motivate us, to keep us from vegetating. They help to give us purpose, meaning and direction. But we need regular periods of personal restoration physically, emotionally and spiritually. We need to replenish our energy and clarify our vision before returning to the battle. 2011, Purpose Driven Life. All rights reserved. Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, The Purpose-Drive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life. It has been named one of the 100 Christian books that changed the 20th Century. He also has written The PurposeDriven Church. FAITHBy Rick Warren Two young Florida men were out for a stroll one evening last year in a small Florida town called Sanford, best known for a fine zoo. As they passed one another in the evening glooming George was drinking one of his six pack of Coca Cola and Trayvon was snacking on Skittles. The exchanged, heys. George, who had never seen a Skittle, asked Trayvon if he wouldnt mind sharing a piece. Trayvon, the most accommodating among his generation said, sure, and tore open the pack. George, just as generous, handed Trayvon a cold Coke. They sat on a neighborhood bench as the sky darkened, just snacking. Suddenly it was dark. As if twins, they looked up to the sky and spotted a shooting star plunging into the horizon. wow, they said. Ill have to tell my momma about that said the young black man. My brother too, said George, simultaneously rising from their bench. Neither man was the kind who gave others a man-hug, but they did, perhaps because of their sharing snacks and shooting stars. Se yas were exchanged, as the young men separated and went on their ways in opposite directions. As avid readers of science fiction will tell you the device of a parallel universe comes up time and time again. There are millions of ways that the meeting between George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin could have turned out. It was their mutual misfortune which turned what could have been a pleasant evening into a nightmare. The trial is over, those dice played. Criminal trials are rarely perfect in the representation of what really happened or result. None of us will really ever know what happened or why, not even George. But there are lessons to be learned. Black, white, brown, red or yellow we are all earthlings who share this lovely planet under the shooting stars with our brothers and sisters. Dont waste your precious hours and minutes hating one another because of your racial or religious differences or differences in sexual preferences. Relish each other in our diversity. Give me a hug and I will do the same.
20 -Edition 154 July 26, through August 1, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comBusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune By Ginny Grimsley Special to the Boca Raton Tribune Most children learn in infancy that they can grab a familiar treat and put it in their mouth, and the good taste will make them happy. They use sight, smell, taste and touch to identify the treat, and movement to reach for it and to pop it in their mouth. It sounds like a simple accomplishment, but it represents a symphony of developmental milestones, said Dr. Serena Wieder, clinical director of the non-profit Profectum Foundation (www.profectum.org). How we use our senses to figure out our relationship to the world around us is an essential -and often overlooked building block to learning, said Wieder, who also is co-author of Visual/ Spatial Portals to Thinking, Feeling and Movement, a groundbreaking new guide to therapeutic strategies for students with learning and autism spectrum disorders. In particular, visualspatial knowledge understanding where you are in space and where other things are relative to you is essential to anything you want to do. When development of that knowledge is delayed, it has a domino effect on every other aspect of development. Children can be affected physically, socially, cognitively and perhaps most important emotionally. But their visual-spatial challenges are often hidden. We are motivated by emotion. The baby grabs the toy his mother is holding because he knows hell feel happy and will look at his mother smiling, both sharing this joyous moment. Imagine the frustration and anger a person might feel if he lacks the visual-spatial knowledge to know that he can reach for and grasp what he wants! Wieder said. Through years of clinical work, Wieder and co-author Dr. Harry Wachs, O.D., a pioneer in visual cognitive therapy, developed hundreds of activities to help children improve their visualspatial knowledge. Here are three activities Wieder suggests for addressing a deficit that affects a childs ability to understand which body parts to move in order to achieve a specific result, such as reaching for a toy or catching a ball. These mental mapping activities help a child understand the parts of his body and the way they relate to each other. Have the child lie belly down on the floor with his arms at his sides and ask him to lift each body part as you touch it. Start with major body parts (head, arm or leg, upper torso.) Next touch two body parts on the same side, for example, the right leg and right arm, and ask him to lift them at the same time. Then try body parts on opposite sides. Next, work on more specific parts, such as elbow, lower leg, should. Then try three body parts simultaneously. Finally, touch two and then three body parts and ask him to lift them in the order they were touched. Have the child face a chalkboard and trace the outline of her body on it. Tell her the drawing represents the back of her body. Stand behind her, touch her back, and ask her to draw an X on the board where she thinks you touched her. Next, progress to touching her back several times in sequence and ask her to draw Xs on the board in the same sequence. Then reverse it. Now, draw a design on the childs back and ask her to reproduce it on the board. Help the child learn how to use the hinges and pivotal points of his body by exploring how he can twist, turn and bend. Ask him to stand and pretend his shoes are glued to the floor so he cant move his feet. Standing a few feet away, hold a yardstick about 2 feet in front of him and slowly move the end toward him. Tell him to decide how to twist, turn, bend, or pivot his body to avoid being touched by the stick. Once a child has a good mental map of her body parts, her next activities will help her understand their height, width and length in relation to the world around her, Wieder said. These activities will give her the visual-spatial knowledge necessary to initiate purposeful actions.Does Your Child Have a Hidden Visual-Spatial Challenge?

26 -Edition 154 July 26, through August 1, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsThe Boca Raton Tribune By: Pedro Heizer Just in time for the Fall Season, the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and FC Dallas struck a deal that will send goalkeeper Richard Sanchez on loan to Fort Lauderdale. We are thrilled to receive such a talented goalkeeper for the fall season, said Head Coach Gnter Kronsteiner. Richard will help solidify our defense. Sanchez was already practicing with the team today as the Strikers continue to prepare for the Fall Season opener versus the New York Cosmos on August 3. I believe that Richard needed to play, said FC Dallas technical director Fernando Clavijo. After playing in the Under-20 World Cup with Mexico, he is at the stage where coming here and sitting on the bench is not going to help his development. The Strikers, who have not had consistency in the goalkeeping position all spring, might be the perfect fit for Sanchez. With Cody Laurendi, who suffered an injury in the spring season, is out for the rest of 2013, and starter Matt Glaeser not having a solid Spring season, it is the perfect opportunity for a youngster like Sanchez to make his mark on a Strikers defense that really needs help. Sanchez helped Mexico win the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup, defeating Uruguay, 2-0, in front of 105,000 people in Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. Sanchez logged 360 minutes with the FC Dallas Reserves in 2012. He finished the season with a 2-1-1 record and a 1.50 goals against average. We had a couple teams that were interested in him but Fort Lauderdale really made a commitment to getting him playing time, said Clavijo. I am very familiar with the Strikers. They are a first-class organization. Between the additional playing time and the guidance of goalkeeper coach Ricardo Lopes, this loan is going to help Richard continue to develop.FC Dallas loans Richard Sanchez to Fort Lauderdale Strikers By Olivia Coiro BOCA RATON, Fla.Lynn University mens basketball head coach Jeff Price eagerly announced the signing of Josh Soto on Monday afternoon. The 6-foot-5, 210 pound sophomore joins the Fighting Knights after playing the 2012-13 season at Division I University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Soto is the sixth and final signee since Price rejoined the Lynn community this past April. We are thrilled to have Josh [Soto] as a part of our program for the next three years, exclaimed Price. He provides us a deep-threat from the perimeter with great size for his position and has been associated with winning programs his entire career. A native of San Juan, Puerto Rico, Soto played three years at Florida Air Academy in Melbourne, Fla., where he played under head coach Aubin Gopori. He was one of the top scorers in his time at Florida Air where he was rated as the No. 9 shooting guard in Florida and No. 71 overall prospect by FloridaHoops.com. During his senior year he averaged almost 20 points and six rebounds a game while helping the team to a 22-4 record and an appearance in the regional quarterfinals of the state playoffs. In his freshman year at Louisiana-Lafayette, Soto played in 27 contests where he averaged 10.6 minutes per game. He scored a season-high 10 points and three rebounds against Arkansas State on December 27, 2012 and shot 33.8 percent from the field for the Ragin Cajuns. Lynn returns six members from last seasons squad that finished 11-16 overall and 3-13 in the Sunshine State Conference. Coach Price looks to combine the old and new faces to restore the programs excellence that he built when he starting the program in 1993. Lynn Basketball Adds Josh Soto as Final Piece to the PuzzleBOCA RATON, Fla. Florida Atlantic University junior linebacker Andrae Kirk has been named to the preseason AllConference USA First Team, the league office announced on Wednesday. The announcement was made in advance of Conference USA media days, which will be held next week in Dallas. Kirk, a junior from Miami, appeared in all 12 games last season, with seven starts. He had eight games of five or more tackles, including seven each against Alabama and Georgia and a career high 11 in the Owls' season finale against Louisiana-Lafayette. He also totaled three pass breakups, forced a fumble and recovered a fumble. As a team, the Owls were picked to finish 6th in the East Division. FAU went 3-9 last season as a member of the Sun Belt. East Carolina was picked to win the East, taking 11 of the 14 first place votes. They were followed by Marshall (two first place votes), Middle Tennessee (one first place vote) and UAB. Southern Miss, FAU and FIU rounded out the order in the East. In the West, Tulsa was the unanimous pick to win the division, followed by Rice, Louisiana Tech, UTEP, North Texas, Tulane and UTSA. The Owls open the 2013 football season on the road at the University of Miami on Friday, August 30. Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. and the game will be televised on ESPNU.

Edition 15427for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comJuly 26, through August 1, 2013Sports Soccer fans in Jacksonville, FL, and Oklahoma City, OK, will have a North American Soccer League team to cheer for when the 2015 Spring Season kicks off after the NASL Board of Governors unanimously approved expansion franchise bids for both cities. The NASL Board received presentations from groups representing four prospective expansion cities as part of two days of meetings being held in Dallas, Texas. We are delighted to be expanding to two cities that clearly have a passion for soccer, where we believe local fans will be excited to welcome our newest teams, said NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson. We have considered expansion to cities that meet specific criteria and most importantly have strong ownership groups that will provide a long and stable future for the NASL in those markets, which we clearly have in both Jacksonville and Oklahoma City. Mark Frisch and former professional soccer player Dario Sala of the Sunshine Soccer Group, which staged a Mexico Primera League exhibition game at EverBank Field in the city earlier this month, led the successful Jacksonville bid. I am thrilled to have helped lead an effort to bring pro soccer back to Jacksonville, said Frisch. I am very grateful for all the support from the city and the fans leading up to this day. I know the fans out there have been waiting for this moment for a long time. I cannot wait to go out and meet them all personally and talk the beautiful game of soccer in Jacksonville. Commissioner Peterson added: I have seen first hand the desire the Jacksonville community has for a professional soccer team to call its own and believe this is a great move for soccer in Florida. The Sunshine Soccer Group is creating another instate rivalry for our teams the Tampa Bay Rowdies and Fort Lauderdale Strikers, appealing to the global soccer passion for local derbies that are always special occasions. Oklahoma City businessman Tim McLaughlin presented to the NASL Board of Governors on behalf of OKC Pro Soccer LLC, which has already secured the rights to plays its games at Taft Stadium in Oklahoma City. Bringing a high-level professional soccer club to Oklahoma City is going to add an exciting new sports dimension to our city and state, said McLaughlin. We look forward to working with the NASL to give our community a soccer team and game experience people will be talking about for many years to come. We are especially excited to know that bringing this level of professional soccer to our market will also help the local schools whose historic Taft Stadium we will play in when it is remodeled and refurbished to its former glory. We will create a revenue source for the local community because every ticket we sell will benefit inner city schools. To say we are excited and overwhelmed is an understatement. Commissioner Peterson added: The Board of Governors has recognized a carefully crafted bid from OKC Pro Soccer LLC, who waited patiently to build a strong platform that will ensure NASL soccer thrives in Oklahoma City. Like their Jacksonville counterparts, they have almost two full years to prepare an unrivaled coaching staff, player roster and venue to create a team that local fans will be proud to support.NASL Grants Expansion Franchises To Jacksonville And Oklahoma City

The players will arrive in Fort Lauderdale on over the weekend and begin training with the team immediately in preparation for their Fall season opener on August 3rd against the New York Cosmos in New York. We are extremely excited about Bryan and Kenney joining our squad for the Fall season, said Head Coach Gnter Kronsteiner. Its been challenging to prepare our team for the first game in such a short time-frame, but I believe both Bryan and Kenney can be huge assets to the Strikers and should make an immediate impact on the field We are truly grateful to the LA Galaxy organization for working with us to help us solidify our team for the Fall, said Strikers President Tom Mulroy. We hope to continue this relationship that benefits both organizations and the players. Selected by the Galaxy in the first round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft, Gaul is a 6 Central Defender with a deadly accurate left foot.
