The holiday that celebrates everything from the Pilgrim harvest to Charlie Brown to the Macys Parade will be held Thursday, Nov. 22 in millions of homes around this nation. In the United States, the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is commonly, but not universally, traced to a poorly documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in presentday Massachusetts.

In later years, religious thanksgiving services were declared by civil leaders such as Governor William Bradford...Happy Thanksgiving, Boca Raton!

As for gifts, Deborah had them bring food to be donated. Its fun to volunteer, said Deborah Faerman, who helps out at BHH almost every week. I wanted my friends to know how fun it is for me to volunteer and for them to see if they could do this. Deborah Faerman started giving back from a young age. Her mother, Summer Faerman has been involved at BHH since she was a teenager. This will be my fourteenth year, said the mother. Theres a picture of [Deborah] in my belly in one of the pictures on the wall [at BHH]. Around 56 people showed up to the party. During an orientation, the crowd of children sat quietly at their tables. Across from them were the gifts, dozens of brown paper bags filled to the top with donated food. The leader went over their duties and what BHH is all about. Everything you do today is going help put food into the hands of someone whos hungry, said the leader, who spoke in a way that didnt seemed like she talking to a group of children but instead a group of people who are ready to work. And work they did. The children took part in many tasks that Deborah would do on a normal day. They bagged rice, stocked shelves, filled pantry bags, made sandwiches and rolled silverware. Parents and other adult volunteers helped supervise. In addition to having her classmates donate their time, Deborah Faerman had one last birthday wish. She hoped that her birthday party would result in 500 pounds of food. But instead, she hit around 800 pounds. After the party, 19 families had approached Summer Faerman with the intent to volunteer more regularly. Her goal is to engage and empower all of her friends to want to volunteer in the community, Summer Faerman said of her daughter. Whether its here or anywhere but to know that life isnt about you, its about the community.10-year-old Girl Throws Birthday Party at Boca Helping Hands By Dawn HowardFlorida Atlantic University has been named to Military Times Best for Vets: Colleges 2014 rankings for the third year in a row. The organization comprising the Army Times, Navy Times, Air Force Times and Marine Corps Times placed a new emphasis on academic rigor this year when conducting and scoring the fourth annual Best for Vets: Colleges Survey, a highly respected 150-question analysis of a schools complete offerings for veterans. To be nominated for a third consecutive year is an honor and serves as confirmation that FAU values and supports veterans, said Charles Brown, Ph.D., senior vice president for student affairs at FAU. The Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, managed by Dylan ReyesCairo, assistant dean of military and veterans affairs, serves military students with an array of holistic programs and initiatives that support their success and well-being as they transition from military service to college. We are ready to provide information and counsel to ensure that no veteran at FAU is left behind. Best for Vets provides service men and women a gauge by which to judge whether a school or degree program will truly benefit them. The rankings factored in service member enrollment, percentage of tuition covered by the GI Bill, and availability of specific programs to help service members. The extensive evaluation process also factored in statistics commonly used to track student success and academic quality, including student loan default rates, retention rates, graduation rates and student-faculty ratio. The rankings are published in full in the November issue of Military Times EDGE magazine, the premier publication for military transition, and online at MilitaryTimes.com, as well as ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes. com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com. The Veterans Day release of Best for Vets: Colleges 2014 coincides with several Military Times initiatives to celebrate service members. The #MyVeteran social media/online campaign allows people to post pictures, videos and stories about a veteran in their lives. Editors picks, along with a Made in the USA holiday gift guide, appear in the issues of the Military Times papers on newsstands this week.FAU Named to Military Times 120 Best Colleges for Vets bocaratontribune.com

Boy hit by Car Remains in ICUBOCA RATON -Its beginning to look a lot like Thanksgiving. The holiday that celebrates everything from the Pilgrim harvest to Charlie Brown to the Macys Parade will be held Thursday, Nov. 22 in millions of homes around this nation. In the United States, the modern Thanksgiving holiday tradition is commonly, but not universally, traced to a poorly documented 1621 celebration at Plymouth in presentday Massachusetts. The original Plymouth feast and the idea of giving thanks were prompted by a good harvest that followed a difficult winter. In later years, religious thanksgiving services were declared by civil leaders such as Governor William Bradford of Massachusetts, who planned a thanksgiving celebration and fast in 1623. But the practice of holding an annual harvest festival like this did not become a regular affair in New England until the late 1660s. Pilgrims and Puritans who began emigrating from England in the 1620s and 1630s carried the tradition of Days of Fasting and Days of Thanksgiving with them to their new home in New England. Several days of Thanksgiving were held in early New England history that have been identified as the First Thanksgiving, including Pilgrim holidays in Plymouth in 1621 and 1623, and a Puritan holiday in Boston in 1631. Thanksgiving proclamations were made mostly by church leaders in New England up until 1682, and then by both state and church leaders until after the American Revolution. During the revolutionary period, political influences affected the issuance of Thanksgiving proclamations. Various pronouncements were made by royal governors, by John Hancock, General George Washington and the Continental Congress, each giving thanks to God for events favorable to their causes. As president of the United States, George Washington proclaimed the first nation-wide Thanksgiving celebration in America marking November 26, 1789, as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God. Its said that the first Thanksgiving featured shellfish and fish. American tastes and palates have changed over the years, making for a cornucopia of possibilities on the Thanksgiving table from ham to tofu, mashed potatoes and gravy to collard greens. Following the early tradition, Legal Sea Foods, a Massachusettsbased restaurant chain with several locations in Florida, will serve everything from stuffed turkey to stuffed lobster on Thanksgiving Day at its location in the Town Center at Boca Raton mall. Signature cocktails such as the Cranberry Bog Lemon Martini are on the beverage list to help kick off the holidays in style. This year, the holidays will be most magical at Mizner Park, 327 Plaza Real in Boca Raton, with a spectacular display featuring a 47 Christmas treeone of only three in the United States. The West Boca Raton Community High School Jazz Band will help light up the tree on Thursday, November 21st at 6:30 p.m. The event is FREE and open to the public. Special events are upcoming in the Christmas and Hanukkah season, and details will be carried in future editions of the Boca Raton Tribune.Happy Thanksgiving, Boca Raton!

These heroes were honored in Veterans Day parades in big cities and small towns all across this country. For many families, the observances were extremely personal and often bittersweet. For all of us, this was a day to show our appreciation. On Monday, we commemorated the armistice that ended the first world war, we gave thanks for V-E day that ended the European phase of the second world war, V-J Day which ended the war in the Pacific and for the cessation of hostilities in the Sadly, the war to end all wars wasnt. World War II followed two decades later, the first Gulf War with Iraq, Bosnia, Afghanistan and the second war with Iraq. The war in Afghanistan continues. U.S. troop levels there have been reduced in recent months, but there were still 54,500 stationed in late September, according to the Military Times website. President Obama has promised to pull all combat forces from Afghanistan by the end of next year. And we are hopeful the president will be able to stick to that timetable. We have Memorial Day, which is dedicated to those who made the supreme sacrifice in all our wars. On Veterans Day we spent a minute in silent meditation to our departed comrades of all wars. Our primary purpose in this day, however, was to remember the living veteran those disabled, at home and in hospitals and to renew our pledge of aid and comfort to the widows and orphans of those who have gone on before. I was somewhat concerned though to see the level of attention given to the day in our local area. On Saturday leading up to Veterans Day, I attended a ceremony in Boynton Beach where the National Disabled Veterans Business Council broke ground on a three bedroom, two bathroom house with a garage for a returning veteran. This sustainable and affordable home will be built on land donated through a program in collaboration with a local bank. It was quite refreshing to hear Joe Franklin, an Army Reserve Service Disabled Veteran and co-founder of the NDVBC, say they plan to work every day to make sure that the home is up and done in a few months. In fact, most if not all of the workers are veterans. I have witnessed the observances in our area on Veterans Day wane over the years. The programs at our houses of worship have become a thing of the past. And I am concerned that if someone does not address it soon, it too will fade in the memories of the past. The is a disconnect between those who fight and those who dont and it has never been greater. Their gallantry is every bit as great as that of our earlier heroes. It however is less celebrated because too often it occurs out of sight such as the case of the special op services or the seals teams who killed Osama bin Laden or those represented only by stars on the wall of the Central Intelligence Agency. The President laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns on Monday as he should. But the day will mean little unless the rest of us take time to remember our warriors, living and dead, and what they endured for us. Until next time, be good.Lets Not Forget Their Sacrice @crankuptheheat @crankuptheheat /crankuptheheat

Edition 1639for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comNovember 22, through November 28, 2013 The Boca Raton Tribune 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. The Meaning of Personal Literacy Competition, Integrity, and Compassion bocaratontribune.comThank God for the gifts of words, speech, writing, and the magnificent advances in publishing through the years. Many past civilizations had depended for many centuries on an oral tradition which kept their values and culture alive, thus transmitted from generation to generation. Through the development and advancement of the science of linguistics, countless spoken languages have been reduced to writing, and even now that practice still goes on in many hidden corners of the globe, offering all the advantages which literacy brings to any individual or nation. Learning to read and write has provided a significant boost to different peoples as persons become literate, more knowledgeable, and thus better capable of significant cultural advances, appearing for quite some time now. Through the ages reading has stimulated thinking which, in turn, promoted more reading and more writing, and this pattern continues to influence an ever larger number of humans from childhood through senior maturity globally. Those who have not limited their literacy only to school demands continue to advance and prosper in several aspects of their personal and societal life. Sadly, this is not as universal as it should and could be. Several years ago, before I was to officiate at the wedding of a young couple, I spent several moments with the groom and his best-man talking about a variety of subjects. In the course of those interactions the bestman, who was a High School dropout, boasted of the fact that he was proud he had not read a single book in his life up to that point; in addition, he was never planning nor desirous to do so. He, along with several others, preferred a life of less achievement on account of those unwise limitations he set for himself without realizing it! Nevertheless, such impoverishment is far more widespread than many realize. I have reflected on that several times, along with other glimpses into the climate of todays society, and came to the conclusion that nowadays, illiteracy is no longer limited to the unschooled those who never learned how to read and write; rather, it also includes those who can read but dont and wont!When we talk about competition in business, typically we are thinking in terms of trying to achieve an advantage over our competitors whether through the products or services we offer, customer service, or other factors that could enable us to increase market share. And whenever a circumstance presents itself that could enable us to gain a competitive advantage, we know it would be wise to grab it. However, a friend of mine, Cliff Jones, offers a very different perspective on competition and the practice of capitalizing on a competitors misfortune. In his book, Winning through Integrity, Cliff included a story about his friend, Robert Ingram, who owned two radio stations, one that specialized in classical music. Mr. Ingram had a monopoly on classical music radio programming in his city until a new competitor arrived. The competitors station presented similar programming, threatening to put a significant dent in the advertising sales and revenue generated by Mr. Ingrams station. One day severe winds blew down the transmitting tower of the rival station. Many people in Mr. Ingrams situation might have celebrated the competitors misfortune. However, he chose a very different approach. Instead of waiting for his opponent to fail because he was no longer able to broadcast, Mr. Ingram sent the chief engineer of his own company to get the competitors station up and running again. When someone asked why he would do such a thing, knowing that choosing not to do anything likely would have resulted in eliminating the competitor, Mr. Ingrams reply was simple and honest: I had what he needed to survive. In the Bibles New Testament, we find this profound admonition: If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, Love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing right (James 2:8). In Mr. Ingrams case, he could have used the competitors problem for his own advantage. But he also realized that, had the circumstances been reversed, he would have appreciated receiving such assistance himself. Too often in todays demanding, high-pressure, bottom lineoriented business environment, we are willing to do anything to secure an important sale, get a signature on a contract, or somehow undermine those competing with us. The thought of offering help to them in a desperate time of need rarely occurs. But if we are committed to conducting business with integrity and compassion concentrating on the best interests of those we encounter during the course of a typical workday, perhaps a radical change in our thinking is necessary. Another New Testament passage tells us, Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others (Philippians 2:3-4). This might sound difficult, because it is. We cant be certain of the next sale, or of finalizing the next deal. But if integrity is our priority, we know what to do even when it is difficult. Will you do the right thing, even if it is for the benefit of a competitor? By Rick BoxxINTEGRETY MOMENTS Copyright 2013, Integrity Resource Center, Inc.

Mark Jewelry store, 145 Via Naranjas, was robbed by an armed gunman. The owner, Joel Mark Leibovitch, called Boca Raton Police to report the robbery. Leibovitch told officers that he was in the process of closing the store and was talking to his girlfriend, when a man entered the store. The suspect displayed a handgun and directed Leibovitch and his girlfriend to the rear of the store. The suspect then told Leibovitch to open the safes and he removed an undetermined amount of jewelry and money. The suspect ordered Leibovitch and his girlfriend into a storage closet and told them to remain there for an hour. After an hour passed, Leibovitch called the police. No one was injured. The suspect spoke Spanish and is described as a Hispanic male, between 5 and 5 tall, medium build, wearing a grey or green puffy, hooded, rain jacket, and sunglasses covering his face. If anyone has information about this case, they are asked to call Detective Ron Mello at (561) 6206186 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.

Enchanting choreography by CoArtistic Director Dan Guin, paired with a score by Tchaikovsky, brings this magical tale to life with a cast of more than 100 dancers, including American Ballet Theatre stars Sarah Smith and Roman Zhurbin.

Sarah Smith, originally from Bad Axe, Michigan, will be performing the role of the Sugar Plum Fairy. She will be returning to her Boca Ballet Theatre roots, where she began her ballet training under the tutelage of Executive Directors Jane Tyree and Dan Guin at the age of 11. She continued her training with full scholarships at The Harid Conservatory and Joffrey Ballet School in New York before studying Ballet Performance at Indiana University.

November 22, through November 28, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 163 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldMatthew McConaugheys Amazing Dallas Buyers ClubMatthew McConaughey will be giving Robert Redford a run for his money in the 2014 Oscar sweepstakes. McConaugheys amazing performance in Dallas Buyers Club will also provide strong competition for Tom Hanks and Chiwetel Ijiofor in the Best Actor category. If that werent enough to boast a films merit, co-star Jared Leto is a shoo-in for a Best Supporting Actor Academy Award nomination. Dallas Buyers Club is a story of a real man: rodeo rough neck and electrician Ron Woodroof. Woodroof was profiled at his death in 1992 by Bill Mintaglio of the Dallas Morning News. In order to play the skeletal role McConaughey went on a crash diet to lose almost 50 pounds. Jared Leto lost around 30 pounds from an already slim frame to play a flamboyant gay transvestite known as Rayon. The story, adapted for the screen by Melisa Wallack and Craig Borten, begins in July, 1985. After Woodroof is injured in an electrical accident, he awakens in a hospital to grim news. He is HIV Positive, says the impassive Dr. Sevard (Denis OHare). Woodroof does not take the news well. Worse, he is told he has only about 30 days to live. In 1985 AIDS was becoming known as the Gay Plague. Not only was Ron Woodroof not homosexual, he was fiercely homophobic, dismissing gay men as faggots and Tinker Belle. It was not understood at that time that women can carry the HIV virus. Once he got over his initial anger and disbelief, Woodroof set about proving medical science wrong. He bribed an orderly into providing him with AZT, an experimental drug being used against the AIDS virus. In doses too strong AZT is a deadly poison, as Woodroof learned from a renegade discredited Dr. Vass (Griffin Dunne) in a makeshift Mexican clinic. With the help of the revolutionary, unproven potions of Dr. Vass and the moral support of sympathetic Dr. Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner), the improvised team developed a regimen effective enough to sell it to other victims through the Buyers Club of the title. For this desperate role McConaughey leaves his handsome hunk leading-man image behind. He has never invested himself as fully in a character as he does in this redneck, racist, sexist, dishonest stereotype who finds his humanity through his own suffering and the suffering of others. Musician ( Seconds to Mars) turned actor Jared Leto proves he has the dramatic power to both make you laugh and pull at your heartstrings as the fragile, doomed Rayon. Dallas Buyers Club FrenchCanadian director Jean-Marc Vallee proves his mettle as well in leading this extraordinary motion picture. You may never feel the same about Texas again. Four stars

From their standard permanent menu, we started to taste a spicy Chili Con a Queso spicy cheese sauce with warm corn chips, then the Queso del Toro with ground beef added to the above. The guacamole with avocado, diced onions, lime, tomatoes and spices served on a bed of lettuce-all three were taste treats and all marked as spicy. Gladys and Arnold and this reviewer turned to a list of 9 burritos, each served with rice and beans, deciding on Rosarito Burritowe had ground beef with lettuce, tomatoes, scallions in a large flour tortilla, topped with mild red sauce and melted cheeses. Full flavored and delicious! One may choose to select pulled chicken or shredded beef in lieu of ground beef. The other 8 versions offer such ingredients as rice, olives, salsa verde, Chili con Queso and more. From a list of 5 sizzling fajitas, Carlitas Spicy Shrimp8 tiger shrimp sauted with lime juice, red wine, Spanish onions, green and red bell peppers on a sizzling skillet-shrimp tender, tasty in great sauce! The tacos, 7 in number, included a great, large taco filled with ground beef, stuffed into a corn tortilla with lettuce, tomatoes, scallions and melted cheese-a real winner. From a list of 4 enchiladas and chimichangas we tried Pepes Spinach-veggie enchilada with fresh spinach, Spanish onion, garlic and cojita cheese in flour tortilla, baked with blended cheese and topped with sour cream-this is a sensational meal in itself! Of the 6 plates available-choose from a Mexican pizza, Quesadilla Superma, Chicken Empanizado, Voodoo Chicken, Carlitas Spicy Shrimp or Macho Nachos-large portions of fine chicken or shrimp and vegetables-all but one listed as spicy! Please note dishes may be prepared mild or spicy or on request El Scorcho! Trust your wait person for advice. All dishes were enhanced with delicious rice and delicious beanswell done, Baja!

We thing you shouldGo and Enjoy!Post workout eating for weight loss Fitness Life After your workout there are post-workout drinks to replenish the calories you have lost. But isnt the point of working out, to lose calories? The athletes in the commercial are using them so shouldnt you? It is best to consume these drinks in the first half hour after your workout for the greatest benefit to new athletes. After you finish working out, your body will replenish with calories and the muscle glycogen (muscle fuel) that you have lost as it prepares for the next workout. The available protein will take care of muscle repair. Any carbohydrates, fat or protein that are brought into your body and not used to replenish muscles or the fuel to make them work will be stored again as fat. If you do not bring in enough calories to replenish what is lost then there will be a loss of weight on the scale. If you bring in what you burned up then you will stay the same. How can you know you are eating less if you do not know what you were eating prior? If you burn 300 calories during a good workout and then have a 300 calorie post-workout drink, then you will not lose anything. If you consume a good meal or at any time take in more calories in a day than your body needs, you will chip away at any weight loss. This is why people quit working out. No diet control, no weight loss. So be alert of what you are eating so you know how to reduce the calorie intake. r fr ntbbttntb rffnftbbf ftfbffff f rfntbftEXTREMEfrrr

November 22, through November 28, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com B6 Edition 163 Section B Tonys Tips For SuccessBe an Encourager! Are you an Encourager? Do you Motivate and Influence others on a regular basis? Zig Ziglars Quote is Very Very Simple! You can have everything you want in life, if you will just help other people get what they want. Part of Being a Great Champion is learning how to have a positive mind set toward yourself and those around you. Whatever you look for in life, you tend to find and attract more of. Darren Hardy makes a great example of this. He tells a story of buying a new car in his book The Compound Effect. You ever notice when you are car shopping and you have a certain make, model and color on your mind, you tend to see more of them. For example, when I moved to S. Fla I purchased my Audi. I never paid much attention to Audis before, but right after I bought it, It was like White Audi A4s were everywhere. Everyone in S. Florida must own a White Audi. Your probably thinking, Tony, what does your Audi have to do with Encouragement? Everything! Your mind works the same way. When you start thinking positively and encouraging other people, you will build their self-confidence and self-esteem. Ultimately you will see more of it. The people you surround yourself with will be more positive when you are positive. As they get more self-esteem and confidence it will raise yours. You and your peers will be an unstoppable force of awesomeness! The problem occurs when we start to focus on the negative influences of other people.

Edition 16321for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comNovember 22, through November 28, 2013 bocaratontribune.com ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Michael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Education and Specialization of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora can be reached at mhgora@sbwlawfirm.com. DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora Supportive RelationshipQ My wife and I were married for thirty years before we divorced. Our property was divided. We both wound up with a couple of hundred thousand dollars in brokerage accounts, she got the house, and I kept most of our retirement account, and a successful furniture store. I pay her half of my income in the form of permanent alimony. We are both fifty-five years old. A year ago, she sold the house and moved to Atlanta, to be near our daughter, her husband and our grand children. Now it seems that she is living with our daughters father in law, whose wife passed away a year ago. They live in his house. No body will talk about their relationship, except to say that she lives there free. My friends tell me that I might be able to get out of alimony, or reduce the alimony, under Florida law. Would that law apply to my former wife, even though she is living in Georgia? Can I go after the reduction in Palm Beach County, where we got divorced? What would I have to prove? A Florida Statute 61.14(1) (b), referred to as the Supportive Relationships statute provides the remedy for your dilemma. The statute codified, defined and added to existing case law based on the idea that it would be unfair for a person to collect alimony, if they lived in the supportive relationship, but did not re-marry. Whether the person receiving alimony no longer needs it because he or she is being supported by the other, or because the person receiving alimony supports the other the relationship is supportive. To proceed under the law you would have to file a Petition for Modification to eliminate or reduce your alimony payments, which can be done in your original divorce case in Palm Beach County. Proof of a supportive relationship can include: a. proof that the couple held themselves out to be husband and wife, while living at the same mailing address; b. proof of the length of time during which the couple lived together in a permanent place of abode; c. the extent to which the couple had pooled their assets or income or, otherwise exhibited financial interdependence; d. the extent to which either had financially supported the other, in whole or in part; e. the extent to which your former wife had performed valuable services for he housemate, or his company or employer, or have worked together to create or enhance anything of value. f. whether the couple had jointly contributed to the purchase of any real property of personal property; g. that your former wife and housemate had entered into an agreement regarding property or sharing support, either express or implied. h. whether your former wife and the other person supplied support to the children of one or the other, regardless of any legal obligation to do so. The existence of a conjugal relationship between the two people may be relevant to the nature or extent of the relationship but is not necessary for the application of the statute. During your modification case, you will have the standard means of discovering the finances of both parties to help you prove your case, such a subpoenas of financial records from the third party and demanding production of documents from your former wife. Depositions of their friends and associates may be taken.Consistent ThankfulnessBeing thankful seems like such a wonderful way to live. I love to think about times in my life when I had such a spirit of gratitude that nothing else mattered. People who live with thankful hearts are usually a total joy to be around and know just how to lift our day. But there is a major problem with thankfulness. At least in my case, thankfulness can exit as easily as it entered. A consistent thankfulness. Now that is something to explore. First the problem. Thankfulness is usually tied to our situational comfort. If life is working out the way we planned, then we become thankful. This will never lead to consistent thankfulness, because life is always changing and usually does not follow the course we set. So we try harder. We are told to be thankful for our blessings, and try to count them one by one. But life gets busy and we can easily miss blessings in the midst of difficult times. One of the biggest challenge to consistent thankfulness is our misunderstanding that God is more concerned about our comfort than our character. Now the solution. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. Psalm 136. Consistent thankfulness will only become a reality in our lives when we start giving thanks for the one thing that does not change. The steadfast love of God. Health comes and goes, friends come and go, wealth comes and goes, but the love of God is based on an unchanging promise. A promise that God would create a way for people to know him and call him Father. This steadfast love is known as hesed in the Hebrew, and refers to Gods unrelenting one-way love for his people. A consistent thankfulness can only survive when based on this unchanging love. Finally the application. God is the giver of all good gifts so please do thank Him for these blessings. But do not stop here or you will go back to situational thankfulness. For at least one month, lets all spend some time each day thanking God for offering a love that pursues us even when we are at our worst. A love that does not change when we do. A love that is best demonstrated and explained through the life and work of Jesusbut God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 Give thanks, consistently, for the steadfast love of God. Much love, Casey FAITHBy Casey Cleveland Casey Cleveland, is pastor at The Avenue Church, Delray Beachs fastest-growing new church.

28 -Edition 163 November 22, through November 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsThe Boca Raton Tribune By Olivia Coiro BOCA RATON, Fla.-Lynn Universitys mens basketball team is off to vibrant start this season after a 58-56 nail-biting victory over Assumption on Saturday afternoon. 2-0 overall with the aid of Fred Landers, who had 13 points, five rebounds and three blocks, along with Aaron Harrison, who headed the offensive with 17 points and seven rebounds. The Blue and White started the game slow by allowing Assumption (1-4) to go on an 11-point run early in the opening period, putting the minutes into play. LU battled back, though, slowly cutting the deficit to keep the Greyhounds on their heels. With three minutes left to play in the first half, Lynn went on a six-point run led by Landers. The sophomore forward was fed the ball from Brandon Smith for a jumper in the paint followed by a quick threepointer to give LU its first lead of the game. Lynn kept Assumption at an arms reach going into the half, maintaining a 34-29 advantage. Landers had a respectable seven points with three assist in the first half while Harrison had nine points. LU opened the second period with three consecutive points by the dynamic duo of Landers and Harrison to preserve a comfortable lead over the Greyhounds. Assumption turned up the heat unanswered points, putting it right back in the game, 38-34, just five minutes into play. The game was neck and neck leading to the final minute of play. Assumption, trailing by two 57-55, called a timeout following a basket by Terrance Bobb-Jones. The Greyhounds forced a bad shot from Jones came down with the rebound and earned a trip to the free-throw line off a foul from Harrison. With two shots to attempt to even the score, the pressure was squarely on Bobb-Jones and Assumptions leading scorer stepped to the line but came up short by connecting on only one of two shots. A missed three by Lynn gave the Greyhounds a chance for the lead but Clyburn would intercept the errant inbound pass and hit 1-of-2 from the charity stripe, still keeping Assumption in the contest. A lastditch effort trey from Jack Sullivan rattled off the back of the rim victory. Both teams were unimpressive from the field with Lynn shooting 30.5 percent compared to Assumptions 36.4 percent from the field. Defensively, LU recorded seven blocks as a team with 12 steals.Lynn Mens Basketball Puts the Greyhounds on a LeashBOCA RATON, Fla.

According to LeBron James, he and Beckham have met in regards of him [LeBron] becoming a potential investor in the MLS franchise Beckham is trying to bring to Miami. Theres some interest on both sides, James, who is already part owner of Liverpool FC of the English Premier League, said to Bleacher Reports Ethan Skolnick. David has become a good friend of mine over the last few years. I think it would be great for this city to have a football club for sure. Theres interest on both sides, but its preliminary talks. As you may already know, part of the contract that Beckham signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy 2007, Beckham received the option to buy a franchise for the discounted price of $25 million, and he has been aggressively looking to bring his franchise to Miami. I think it [MLS in Miami] could be huge, James said to Skolnick. I think this is a great town for soccer. There are a lot of soccer players, there are great youth soccer players here and people love the city as well. That definitely would help. LeBrons interest in the MLS franchise would give Beckhams team a boost. Theres no denying the weight that the name LeBron James carries in Miami, especially after James delivered back-to-back championships to the city. The question on everyones mind is: Would LeBron James be enough to make the average Miami fan fall in love with the new MLS team? Three of Miamis four professional teams (Dolphins, Panthers, and Marlins) are not doing very well when it comes to drawing fans to the stadium; LeBrons Heat are the only exception. Would LeBrons involvement with Beckham be the X-Factor to not only bring MLS back to Miami, but to bring fans to the stadium? Most soccer fanatics wont care about the possibility of LeBron and Beckham in the owners box, but many LeBron fans will make a trip to a soccer game if they have a chance of seeing their idol, if only for a minute. LeBron himself was not a soccer fan at first, but upon watching games he became a fan. Why cant others follow in his footsteps? Ive grown a great interest in watching the game and learning the guys, James said of his familiarity with soccer. Its a pretty intense sport. My kids love it as well. Ive grown to the point where I know exactly whats going on when Im watching the game. With the possibility of LeBron joining Beckham, Miamis MLS team could have a star-studded ownership group that would include the two superstars, Marcelo Claure, and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. According to sources, Ross has also shown interested in joining Beckhams venture. A source close to Ross indicated that RSE Ventures, the sports marketing company Ross co-founded with Matt Higgins in 2012, is looking to provide marketing services to the investment group being put together by Beckham, and possibly provide both a temporary, and permanent stadium solution for the proposed team. RSE Ventures, through its subsidiary Relevent Sports, hosted last summers International Champions Cup, a series of exhibitions featuring Real Madrid, AC Milan, Juventus, and the L.A. Galaxy, and recently brought Brazil to play Honduras at Sun Life Stadium in front of over 71,000 fans. Despite believing MLS in Miami could be huge, James has his reservations about the potential franchise. We dont know, said James when he was asked if MLS would work in Miami. Its like buying a house, you dont know until you sign the papers.Is LeBron James the X-Factor for Miamis MLS Dream?

30 -Edition 163 November 22, through November 28, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsThe Boca Raton Tribune SPORTS By: Pedro Heizer The worst kept secret in North American sports became a reality last night as Major League Soccer awarded Orlando an MLS franchise. After months of speculation, the Orlando City Lions will march onward towards MLS in 2015. We are proud and excited to welcome Orlando to Major League Soccer, Commissioner Don Garber said. From the success of the Orlando City Soccer Club, to the incredible fan support and passion in the community, this is a new market that really excites us. We have great confidence in Flvio Augusto da Silva, Phil Rawlins and the rest of the Orlando City ownership group. They love this sport, our League and this city. And thanks to the commitment of ownership, the City of Orlando and Orange County, Orlando City will soon have a spectacular new stadium that will provide fans and the entire community with a truly unique downtown sporting experience. Garber and principal club owners Flvio da Silva and Phil Rawlins made the news official on Tuesday in front a sea of purple-clad fans in Orlando, a celebratory moment for a franchise with its eyes on MLS expansion since 2010. The club moved from Austin, Texas, three years ago with full knowledge that Orlando is one of the fastest growing markets in the US, with the nations fourth fastest-growing Latino market. They backed up the promising off-field demographics with onfield success, earning the USL PRO regular-season title in 2011 and 2012 and surging to the leagues postseason crown in 2013. Da Silva, a native of Brazil, leads Orlando City's ownership group, which includes club founder and managing partner Rawlins, chairman John Bonner and 10 local partners. Da Silva previously owned Wise Up, a group of more than 400 language schools operating in five countries, and currently owns Gerao de Valor (Valuable Generation), a company dedicated to developing young entrepreneurs. "Orlando is a special city with amazing fans that have embraced the beautiful game and we have no doubt that Orlando City will become the next success story in MLS, da Silva said in a statement. We would like to thank MLS leadership for working with us and helping us bring Major League Soccer to Central Florida." "It is a dream come true to bring Major League Soccer to Orlando," Rawlins said in a statement. The fans in Orlando have clearly demonstrated that they are ready for MLS, and we look forward to celebrating with them and working together to set a new standard in this country. We have watched the evolution of Major League Soccer, and we are thrilled to join what has become one of the fastest growing and most exciting leagues in the world. Rawlins also added to the excitement last night stating that the club will sign the "Brazilian Beckham" when it joins MLS. Many believe Rawlins is referring to who is friends with da Silva and who visited the club earlier this year. "It's huge. It's a momentous day for Orlando," Rawlins said. "This puts soccer on the map, not only in Orlando, but the entire Southeast. It's great for a community that believed in this dream." Is second time in the southeast the charm for MLS? According to da Silva, yes. "It's a different time, completely different," said da Silva. "Soccer is exploding. Twenty-four million kids from ages 5 to 17 play soccer. It's a phenomenon." Commissioner Garber says his league today is stronger "by a long shot," noting it has added 10 teams the last decade and its 19 teams play in 15 soccer-specific stadiums. Orlando City will join the league at the same time as the leagues 20th franchise, New York City FC, marking the fourth time the league has added two clubs in one year. In 1998, the Chicago Fire and Miami Fusion joined. In 2005, Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA came into the league. And the last time was in 2011, when the Portland Timbers and Vancouver Whitecaps made the jump from the lower divisions up to MLS. Orlando City will play the 2014 USL Pro season at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Then, in 2015, the Lions will open their MLS era in the renovated Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium, before moving into a new 18,000-seat soccer stadium in downtown Orlando later that summer. Construction for the new stadium which was approved last month by the Orange County Board of Commissioners is slated to begin next spring. With all the media attention last night focused in Orlando, many could have missed the little hint about MLS Miami. Commissioner Garber hinted that MLS will soon also take its talents to South Beach. While talking about rivals, Garber said that Orlando City can soon expect to have some rivals several hundred miles to the south. As we all know, Beckham has been hard at work to bring MLS back to Miami. Beckham already has support from heavyhitters such as Miami Heat star LeBron James who has said he had talks with the retired soccer icon about teaming to bring a franchise to South Florida. James already has an ownership stake of Liverpool in the English Premier League, and Beckham has a option to create a MLS team before the end of the year. To put into context how much of a steal Beckham's $25 million expansion fee is, consider this: Orlando City is paying an entrance fee of $70 million. According to sources, three of the four expansion teams are accounted for; Atlanta and Miami are the next two cities that will be part of MLS, the third city is still being decided but there have been talks that St. Louis will get the bid.Orlando City Becomes First of Four New MLS Expansion Franchises, South Florida is up Next Orlando City Majority Owner, Flavio da Silva Celebrates his Teams Victory in becoming the 21st MLS Franchise | Photo by: Mark Thor
