6 -Edition 178 March 21, through March 27, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIALS/LETTERS EDITORIAL By C. Ron AllenThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher Business C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media The People Close to YouBy Clay Robinson Sometimes in life we are presented with an opportunity to do something different such as get a very good job or gain a new position that can elevate you from your previous position. When this moment occurs it is extremely important to know those people around you who can have an influence on you or impact you indirectly. New opportunities can be very rewarding for us, but the problem is never good things happening. The true issues are the bad vibes, comments or efforts by others that can help you or cause you to fail. Sometimes those closest to you can and will do or say things that may damage your success. Probably your first wall of challenge is your family. Yes, I said it! Look at your mate, what is that relationship like? If that person is not 100 percent supportive of you and there were problems going on prior to your chance to improve your lifes position, will your rise in life make your mate jealous of you? Exactly what do you think he or she is capable of? What kind of demands will cause additional emotional stress? Dont limit your thinking to only your family. Friends are very much capable of giving poor advice or suggesting things that may not be in your best interest. Now, look at co-workers. If you have been in the work environment for some time and you now have more authority, will someone request something from you that goes against policy? Over the past year I have watched someone who has been dealing with these issues. She was given an opportunity to acquire a profitable business from someone who was introduced to her by a mutual party. Her only requirement was to keep the business going by learning everything she could from the owners over a one year period and put forth ever effort to make sure the business continued to grow. Within the first month of the transition her son burglarized the business and the original business owners where out of their share of the business profits $6,000. When she confronted her son, he went on a profanity-laced tirade and told her I hope you fail. After the incident she revealed to the business owners the poor relationships and parental history she had with all of her children. Needless to say the business owners were forgiving and supportive and allowed her to repay the debt little by little. A few more months into the transition, with the burglary behind her, she has to contact the business owners once again to inform them of a domestic violence incident that had taken place between her and her boyfriend. This was important because this is someone she asked to bring in as a business partner. He had assaulted her pretty badly and the police where involved, but to what extend I dont know. During this time she confessed to the business owners that this was not the first domestic violence incident she had experienced with her boyfriend. There had been several throughout the few years they had been dating. She continues to date that same boyfriend and still wants to take him on as a business partner. In addition to those persons in her life she also keeps friends near and dear who give her poor advice and support her every move to self-destruct. How many times have someones negativity impacted your life? Do you keep those who continuously sabotage you close by? If you chose to do so, in the end, you only have yourself to blame.
Edition 1787for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com March 21, through March 27, 2014 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 Rick BoxxINTEGRETY MOMENTS Copyright 2013, Integrity Resource Center, Inc. Adapted with permission from Integrity Moments with Rick Boxx, a commentary on issues of integrity in the workplace from a Christian perspective. a biblical approach for doing business with integrity. It is wise to be cautious wherever we are. It is equally imperative to be aware of all the evil that abounds in society. It is further necessary to take every precaution against dangers which run rampant everywhere on earth! But that should never reach the point of paranoia! Every human must aim at living cautiously in the world, even if conditions were totally safe and desirable. Nevertheless, the reality experienced by which all humans, is that we occupy an evil space under the sun, anywhere all over the globe. Terrorism is not limited to the areas where it originates; crime of manifold varieties threatens individuals and groups everywhere; natural and other disasters occur with increasing frequency in most regions of earth! In some ways its not easy to lead a tranquil life on account of all these realities. One can only awake every morning hoping for the best, and doing what is necessary to ensure good things to come, albeit much more is left outside ones control. What complicates matters for some people is that they unnecessarily augment their misery by the phobias they entertain. On account of so much identity theft, often caused by a proliferation of internet users and new varieties of social media, some people rob themselves of the benefits which those modern conveniences offer! Certain others are hesitant of answering their own phones, fearing that their messages may be heard by others. If they use a computer, they dont permit the use of the web camera since that would bring undesirable eyes into the privacy of their own home or office, while the curtains at their domiciles are to remain shut all day so that the whole world wont be looking in! While legitimate caution needs to be observed in all we do, much of the above and more can and should be avoided; it is paranoia at its purest, and it simply diminishes ones sense of personal peace, while robbing such persons from the vaster benefits which come from modern technologies, and a life of genuine liberty! As long as we occupy the globe, evil shall also exist, persist, and never desist, due to the human proclivity to all kinds of evil. Yet, notwithstanding all that, one can enjoy new devices, utilize them to the best of ones ability with every measure of reasonable caution and for legitimate ends only, thus contributing to ones personal growth and bringing benefits to others!Keep Your Phobias From Stealing Your Peace! Going Beyond What The Law RequiresWhen you think about the rules and regulations that affect you in the workplace, whether they are broad-based laws that apply to everyone or statutes that were designed specifically for your industry or profession, how do you deal with them? Do you comply only to the minimum extent required, choosing to abide strictly to the letter of the law, or would you consider the sometimes broader spirit of the law the underlying and sometimes more demanding intent behind it? For years I have consulted with business and professional leaders, helping them to grasp and understand biblical principles that apply to the everyday marketplace. When I began doing this, it became evident that to avoid the danger of not practicing what I was teaching, I had to do an honest self-appraisal. This included examining my life for any past issues that I ignored or had not properly resolved. To be honest, doing this can be humbling and uncomfortable, but I felt it was necessary and important for my integrity as a consultant. I became convicted about a small, unpaid corporate debt from a previous business I had owned. Although the financial obligation was corporate, and legally I had no personal responsibility, God made it clear that He wanted all of my business dealings to be beyond reproach. As a result, I tracked down the business that was still owed money by my former company and sent them a check for the proper amount. The owners were more than surprised they were amazed. They called not only to thank me but also to tell me that since the debt had been written off and removed from their financial records, they donated the payment to a local church. Without question, I could have overlooked the unpaid debt. It was a legally constructed corporate entity a business that no longer existed that technically owed the money. Since my personal finances were not involved in any way, legally I had no responsibility. That was what the letter of the lawwould have said. However, as a follower of Jesus Christ, committed to living and working with integrity, I could not use that excuse. The spirit of the law, I knew, would have said differently. How could I speak with and advise leaders in the workplace about honesty and integrity if I were not willing to hold myself to the same standards? In the Bibles New Testament, Ephesians 5:3 teaches, But immorality or any impurity or greed must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. Gods standards as He reveals in the Scriptures often exceed the law, but if we are to be effective and credible as His ambassadors, it is essential for us to live accordingly. My purpose is not to put anyone under a guilt trip. However, if God brings to your mind something you have done that should be corrected or something you need to do I urge you to follow through on that as soon as possible. Even if it means going beyond what the law requires. You will not regret it.
8 -Edition 178 March 21, through March 27, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.com COMMUNITY NEWS Super Science Symposium Challenges, Educates StudentsBy Bito David More than 130 students attended the 3rd Annual Super Science Symposium at Sandpiper Shores Elementary School on Saturday, March 1. Students in the 3rd to 5th grades received 15 interactive hands-on Science workshops. Each student participated in three of the science workshops and one team challenge (egg drop or balloon powered car). The egg drop competition was really fun because we got to use a real egg and cover it with cotton, straws, and popsicle sticks, said 5th grader Gia Russel. We had to cover the egg enough so it did not crack when it was dropped from a ladder. The hands-on workshops were facilitated by a host of people including 31 students from West Boca Raton High School Science National Honor Society, teachers and staff from Sandpiper Shores Elementary School, the education coordinator from Solid Waste Authority and parent volunteers. Many of these students were also members of the West Boca Raton High School Science Olympiad team, a handson science competition. Event coordinator Rebecca Zybach said the competition aims to provide students with a variety of activities so they can experience how much fun science can be and yet learn the underlying scientific concepts as well. Students learn about the states and changes of matter as they make their own ice cream in a bag, or witness the super freezing effects of liquid nitrogen, said Zybach, a 5th grade science teacher. They learn about plant and animal life cycles as they experiment with mealworms, human body systems, and the major parts of cells by creating a cell from different kinds of candy. By building electric circuits and making recycled paper, they can better understand the concepts of energy and conservation. It was a great morning of Science for our students. Boca Raton Woman Makes History as 1st Marine Sergeant Major By Thomas Brennan & Jason Schwartz A new chapter is being written in the U.S. Marine Corps history as a Boca Raton native becomes the first woman to take over as senior advisor for the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. Sgt. Maj. Lanette Wright relieved Sgt. Maj. Octaviano Gallegos Jr. as senior advisor for the 24 Marine Expeditionary Unit on March 14 in Camp Lejeune, N.C. The 45-year-old said she wants Marines, both men and women, to embrace the changing face of the Marine Corps and the broadening spectrum of billets women will fill in the future. Selected for her new billet by an array of sergeants major, Wright feels as though her vast knowledge of both MEU and Marine Air Ground Task Force operations make her wellsuited for the role. I understand this is historic, but this is about being a Marine leader, she said. Im not new to Marines. Ive been around them for some time ... This boils down to just being a Marine. Im just honored to have the position. While a new milestone for female Marines has been etched into the history books because of Wrights assignment, she said she feels as though she isnt responsible for opening doors for her fellow Marines. Rather, she feels as though the Marine Corps gave her an opportunity to succeed by leading Marines. Leading Marines, she said, is a calling and one that she loves to continue answering. The opportunity to be a MEU sergeant major, she said, will allow her to expand her leadership and become a better Marine. I am humbled and privileged to take over this position, said Wright, who lives in Sneads Ferry, N.C. I dont want to make this about a womans issue. ...Its about taking opportunities and serving the Marine Corps at a higher level. The position of being the sergeant major of the 24th MEU could have gone to any of the applicants, she said. The thing about sergeant major leadership across the board is that we all train the same and we all educate ourselves the same, said Wright, who previously served as the senior enlisted advisor at the Command Inspector General office, 2nd Marine Logistics Group. As one of the female Marines serving under Wright, Sgt. Casey Bone, 22, of Vilonia, Ark., said that whether Wright realizes it or not, she is an inspiration to female Marines who one day hope to reach both her level of experience and her stature within the Corps. Its an honor to be with this unit right now, Bone said. Not only is it a big deal to have a female sergeant major, but this is my first time working with a female sergeant major. ... Its always a great thing to see things continuing to get better (for female Marines). Because of Wrights service, accomplishments that Bone thought werent possible now seem more attainable, she said. Through Wrights service, she has shown Bone that it is important to always strive for things and never doubt yourself. You can get as far as you want, she said. Her personal decorations include two Meritorious Service Medals, three Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals, and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals. For the commanding officer of the 24 MEU, Col. Scott Benedict, it was a bittersweet day, he said. On one hand, he said farewell to a sergeant major he served two years with and who inspired, mentored and molded countless Marines. On the other hand, he welcomes Wright, who he expects great things from, he said. Wright, Benedict said, brings knowledge of MEUs and incredible leadership skills. He added that the Marine Corps demands a lot of its sergeants major but he knows that Wright will step up to the challenge and exceed his expectations. You dont get to become a sergeant major without a lot of experience and skills, Benedict said. It really is the epitome of a career and having Sgt. Maj. Wright come on board Im looking forward to having another two years of outstanding leadership. Sea Turtle Lays Eggs on Boca BeachA 600-pound leatherback turtle did not let a packed beach stop her from laying eggs. Beach goers rushed to find their cameras Monday after the sea creature slowly moved out of the water to give a rare delivery. Witnesses recall the turtle coming nearly 30 yards out of the water before she dug up a hole, laid the eggs and covered it with sand. 90 minutes later, she was back in the water. Florida wildlife experts called the daylight delivery a once in a lifetime opportunity. The leatherback sea turtle is listed as endangered. The turtles often wait until nighttime to lay their eggs. Typically, sea turtle nesting season runs from March through the end of October. .

According to the probable cause affidavit Leburn said took my photograph on March 2 and posted it on the Internet. Another employee of the restaurant was also severely stabbed and is hospitalized in critical condition at Delray Medical Center. According to the probable cause affidavit, deputies say that they received a call that a man dressed in a black apron, holding a large knife, fled the restaurant after the stabbing. Deputies caught up with Lebrun nearby. Investigators say that Lebrun told them through an interpreter that him and posted it on the internet, and according to the deputies, Lebrun was upset about the photograph, They need to learn how to respect people; I have three kids in Haiti. I know they will suffer but they will survive. Lebrun allegedly attacked side of his torso and once in the back. Lebrun is being held in the Palm Beach County Jail without bond on first degree murder and attempted murder charges. Boca man Accused of Molesting 2 Girls, Declared a PredatorBy Jason SchwartzA Boca Raton financial adviser who used his foreign-born wifes fear of deportation to get away with molesting at least two young girls including a 4-year-old has been declared a Sexual Predator, the Boca Raton Tribune has learned. Mark David Hawkins, 52, was charged last September with multiple counts of sexual abuse. As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors dropped the sex abuse charge but had Hawkins plead guilty to battery and accept the designation as Sexual Predator. He spent one year in the County Jail and 10 months of probation with an ankle monitor. The Florida Department of Children and Family Services investigated Hawkins for sexual assault on an 8-year-old girl in 2009. His wife, a 27-year-old Filipina he met online and brought to the U.S. to marry in 2007, saw the abuse happen, but went back and forth between confirming and denying it, records show. She eventually told investigators that Hawkins, a vice president of investment with Wells Fargo, made a 4-year-old girl perform a sex act on him. He had disgusting photos and videos of men sexually abusing children on his computer, according to official records. And, she said, the 2009 alleged sexual abuse actually did happen something he later discussed during a controlled call with investigators. Hawkins, who formerly served as president of the Boca Raton Pilots Association, met his wife on a website American men use to find Filipinas. In 2007, he proposed to her and brought her to the U.S. on a fiance visa, the report said. Two months later, he married her. Records show it was his fourth marriage and her first. A week after reporting the allegations against her husband, records show, Hawkins wife filed for divorce. The case is still open. Palm Beach County Sheriffs deputies say that they received information that Hawkins had a blog on his computer about molesting young girls. Investigators say that Hawkins had children stay at his home who they allege were molested by him. Deputies say that one of the victims was four-years-old at the time of the alleged abuse.

Punk rock trio Green Day released a concept album called American Idiot in 2004. The stage musical version, which won two Tony awards in 2010, makes its Fort Lauderdale debut Tuesday, March 25 for an exclusive run through April 6. The songs and lyrics of American Idiot are by principal Green Day song writer Billy Joe Armstrong. The book of the musical is by Armstong and director Michael Mayer. Orchestrations and musical arrangements are by Pulitzer PrizeMusical director is by Evan Jay Newman, who also conducts the onstage band and plays keyboards. I even get to play accordion, which is pretty cool, said Newman from a tour stop in Toronto. We have been to are worse things to do than tour the world. Newman signed on to the second national tour in July of 2012 and has been touring ever since. Last year I got the chance to meet Billy Joe and his wife Adrian, Newman exclaims. He invited us to a Green Day concert in England and we got invited backstage. `American Idiot is a rock opera. Its pretty hard-edged and very keyed into the punk rock tradition. The transition to a theater audience is accomplished through Tom piano-string combinations. `American Idiot is definitely drawn from the teen dilemma in a post 9-11 America. Its a very critical piece that says just open your eyes and do something. Tickets are $34.50-$79.50 at the Broward Center. Call 954-462-0222 or go to www.browardcenter.org.

March 21, through March 27, 2014www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 178 Section B Better Living at Living Room TheatersBetter Living Through Chemistry is a rather racy offering for FAUs Living Room Theaters. It will be interesting to see how this modern sex farce goes over with an older audience. Actually Better Living is a bit more subversive than just a sex farce. If you were to take it seriously you might think the best thing to spice up a stale marriage is a wild fling powered with drugs and alcohol followed by a plot to murder an annoying mate. But you cant take this movie, written and directed by Geoff Moore and David Posamentier, too seriously because it is played as a bawdy comedy with a wink and a nod. Sam Rockwell is Douglas Varney, a meek and mild pharmacist in the small town of Woodbury in Anywhere, USA (but suspiciously like Southern California). Doug works for his father-in-law is a loutish, domineering blowhard who thinks he knows everything. Monaghan) also has a domineering streak, which has kept wimpy Doug 12-year-old son Ethan (Harrison Holzer) is out of control; insolent and uncommunicative at home and disruptive in middle school. When Dougs delivery man Noah (Ben Schwartz) fails to deliver a prescription on time, Doug decided to deliver it himself. Elizabeth Roberts (Olivia Wilde) answers the door clad in a slip with a drink in one hand and cigarette in the other. The bill is $180 but Elizabeth has only $20, and her rich husband is out of town. It begins with a lingering kiss on the lips. Mrs. Roberts is one seductive babe and Doug is vulnerable. This is a sex farce, not a morality play. Elizabeth is fond of mindaltering, sex-enhancing drugs, and Doug has the ingredients at the ready. As Doug becomes more reckless, he takes up smoking and paradoxically decides to challenge his fitness-freak wife to a bicycle race. When by chance Doug meets Elizabeths husband Jack (Ray Liotta) it dawns on him maybe Jack isnt the unreasonable ogre Elizabeth painted him. When DEA Agent Andrew Carp (Norbert Leo Butz) pays a visit to the pharmacy, Dougs situation becomes uncomfortably serious. Sam Rockwell is a versatile actor who can play both milquetoast and wild man in the same role, which serves him well here. Olivia Wilde has the right combination of sex appeal and illicit menace, while Michelle Monaghans good girl learns a satisfying life lesson. Stick around for the end and enjoy a famous person cameo that reassures it is all in good fun.

You may or may not be a good candidate for Distressed Properties. If you are thinking of purchasing a distressed sale, there a number of things to consider based on your situation and it is important to consider the type of distressed property you want to purchase. Lets look at 2 main types of sales you must consider when purchasing a home, Traditional Sale versus Distressed Property Sale. The traditional sale consists of a person owing less money on a home and can sell the home at current market value to make a profit or make enough money to pay back there loan in its entirety. The Distressed Property sale is one when the homeowner owes a larger amount than what the property is actually worth. Or the homeowner can no longer afford to pay for there home due to unforeseen circumstances such as loss of job or medical expenses causing them to go into default on there loan. There can be a number of reasons for the owner to go into default and not be able to pay back the loan amount. When thinking about distressed properties, its important to learn about each step of this complex process in order to leverage your chances of purchasing the home. Distressed sales go through a variety of stages which include Short Sale, Pre-foreclosure, Foreclosure, Auction, REO (Real Estate Owned) or Private Investor Owned. Once you know more about what each step is in the process then you should ask yourself a set of questions to help guide you in making the appropriate decision. Consider these questions: 1. Are you flexible on timing? 2. Can you make a quick decision and/or be able to encounter months of delays? 3. Have you already secured financing or are you paying cash? 4. Do you need to sell your current home first or are there any other contingencies limiting yourself when purchasing? 5. If a property needs repair or rehab, do you know how much it will cost you to fix it up? What professionals do you have available to guide you? 6. Are you purchasing as an investment or to live in? What is your action plan? If as an investment, do you intend on renting or reselling? Buying a distressed sale property can become quite costly, if you are not experienced. Some properties may be move-in ready or need to have major items repaired such as roof replacement or mold remediation. Others are owner occupied or vacant. If you buy a home that is owner occupied or has a tenant then you must go through the foreclosure process yourself, which can become quite expensive. When buying a distressed sale property you should know what you are looking for and how to handle each process. If you do, then there are buying opportunities at each stage. To determine whether or not you are a candidate or it may be a buying opportunity for you.

The Cost of Investing and Not InvestingTwo company executives were discussing the considerable cost of training and developing people within their organization. The chief financial officer asked the CEO, What happens if we invest in people and they leave? The CEO looked directly at the CFO, paused and then replied, What happens if we dont invest in people and they stay? A thought-provoking question, right? In most companies, regardless of size, some people are like dead wood handling responsibilities, striving to meet deadlines and receiving paychecks, but not growing or becoming stellar contributors to the organizations mission and goals. There might be other factors involved, but often we simply have failed to invest in them We see advertisements and commercials about financial investments how to increase ones net worth or savings for the future, especially for those approaching retirement age. However, there is probably no greater investment than to share ones time, energy and experience with other people, regardless of whether results feel like success. It is far better to invest in people and lose some that move on to better opportunities than not to invest and become burdened with people operating well below their potential and capabilities. It can be argued the true mark of a leader is not what occurs while he is in control, but what happens after he leaves. Does the work continue and grow, or does it stagnate or die? A dedicated leader investing in and developing people that work for his or her organization will leave an enduring legacy, whether those individuals remain with the company or leave for key leadership roles at other places. By contrast, poor leaders leave unstable, even crumbling enterprises when they are removed from the picture, much like a house of cards. Their legacy, often because of selfishness, pride and an unwillingness to invest in others, is failure and futility. During His time on earth, Jesus Christ invested in a handful of ragtag disciples, none of whom would have been voted most likely to succeed. Yet when He departed from the earth, He entrusted them with His mission, one that continues to be embraced by countless millions today. Jesus gave His followers simple instructions: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you (Matthew 28:19). And the apostle Paul, the beneficiary of a long-term investment in his own life by a faithful man named Barnabas, told young Timothy, And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others (2 Timothy 2:2). Maybe someone invested in you. Whether we lead large corporations, have our own businesses, are managers or even employees in a small department, we each have a unique, significant sphere of influence. Who are you investing in? And if youre not investing in them, who is?A Perfect PairThis column is not about divorce, to the contrary. One of my favorite photographs captures two synchronized divers. I call my photo A Perfect Pair. Tom and Naomi Shirley, of Broward County, pulled off a similar feat this month when, after 43 years of marriage they passed away, nearly simultaneously, by virtue of heart attacks while he was in the hospital, and she rushing there to see her husband one more time. He was 83 and she 75. My mother and mother-inlaw, 96 years old and 95 will read or see the Shirleys storey and probably comment on the youth of the couple, point of view being everything. My wifes reaction will be, Perfect, and I agree. To leave this earth, as we must, simultaneously has saved the other the angst of grief for the other, magnified by all that has to be done at death. The Shirleys death ensemble will save their son Troy a decade or so probably watching the failing of one parent or the other physically and/ or mentally. While neither the State nor citizens usually choose the time, place and manner of their deaths in retrospect it is clear that our elders often fantasize a particular exit, surrounded by loving family and painless passing with full cognitive awareness to boot. In the movie Logans run the planet upon which Logan lives is running out of space, water, and food causing the State to terminate its citizens at age forty for the sake of its society. Your physician knows that the care of the elderly/sick is a cause of great physical pain to our loved ones and great economic strain on the individuals, their heirs and society alike. Certainly we are not at the time to re-invent Logans Run but, perhaps, we ought to revisit allowing more choices for the elderly than to just fall apart with pain and cost to their families and society in general. Hats off to Tom and Naomi Shirley.Financial SuicideAs a matrimonial attorney I cannot envision suggesting to a hard working, high earning, and professional husband that the way to defeat the wife in the divorce game was to surreptitiously spend all of your money so there would be none left to divide with the wife. That type of process will have a number of bad results. It will clearly create legal fees to the wife, and her family who will often come to the wifes aid, virtually spending the wifes inheritance. While the husband must believe that he can regain his financial position quickly and the wife cannot that is like betting on you in marathon. It might work out, but maybe not. Florida statutory and appellate law has ways to stop the nonsense. A review by the wifes lawyer and forensic accountant, if she can afford that luxury, will investigate the finances of the husband over time and come up with the husbands plan. Proof of the husbands intent will usually be apparent as his spending habits will have reduced his liquidity through bizarre purchases, money spend on his new lady friend(s). Cash will be leaking directly to the husband with no rational purpose other than stuffing the greenbacks into virtual pillow cases all over the neighborhood and further. This type of activity is often masked by the husbands accusations of the wifes infidelity, while he has been a long term hound dog. These types, however, seem to want to have their cake and eat it too and often; after accusing the wife of infidelity he talks her back into bed which, technically, defeats any claim he has made against her for adultery. This syndrome is more popular than it should be and not likely to succeed, but the cost that will result to both parties financially and emotionally will not be worth it.
