By: Quezia SalgadoBoca Ratons new mayor Susan Haynie expressed it best during her remarks on this Mondays swearing-in ceremony, when she said: Today is a new beginning for our city, its neighborhoods, and residents; its a chance for us to renew our spirits, and the feeling was shared by all council members, new and current, as well as by all of those in attendance. During the opening of the ceremony, Haynies pastor Jerry Jones led attendees on the official invocation, which set the tone for the event. Former mayor Susan Whelchel followed with a statement of gratitude for the support she received during her 20 years of service to the community. Whelchel was then presented with a gift by Haynie who communicated to the audience her appreciation for the former mayors leadership: Whelchel has been an amazing leader and visionary for this city; we are a grateful community for what [she has] done for us. The ceremony was then led by Haynie who introduced new councilman Scott Singer as he was sworn in by Whelchel. Singer thanked his family and stressed that without them he would not be where he is today. With deep gratitude, Singer stated, the opportunity to serve my fellow citizens is one of the highest one can have in a free society, and I take my oath today with the utmost respect and responsibility. Council member Michael Mullaugh was sworn in by Assistant City Manager Susan Saxton, and said he looks forward to bringing in his experience to work with the new team and continue to improve the quality of life in Boca Raton.

Edition 1803for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com April 04, through April 10, 2014 Community News Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune The HARID Conservatory Hosts An Evening of DanceOn Tuesday evening, March 18, The HARID Conservatory hosted An Evening of Dance for more than sixty invited guests. HARID is an internationally renowned professional-training school for gifted young ballet dancers, located in Boca Raton. HARID director, Gordon Wright, served as host for the evening. He first welcomed the guests at a reception before inviting them to be seated in the schools large practice studio, which also serves as a performance space. There, Wright spoke about HARIDs history, including information about the schools founder and benefactor, the late Fred Lieberman. He next introduced HARID president John Wargo and trustees Arthur Redgrave, Kenneth Wenzel, and Glenn Rissman. Wright then commented on the notable success enjoyed by so many of the schools alumni, who have been employed by more than eighty professional dance companies across the United States and in Canada, Europe, South America, and Asia. Following Wrights remarks, the guests were treated to an engaging dance performance featuring both the schools current students and a number of distinguished alumni. Cavan Conley graduated from HARID in 2012 and is currently a member of Tulsa Ballet in Oklahoma. Cavan demonstrated his strong jumps and multiple turns by performing Basilios variation from the ballet Don Quixote. Isabella Boylston completed her studies at HARID in 2005 and then joined American Ballet Theatre in New York City. She was promoted to soloist in 2011. Isabella has been awarded a Princess Grace Award and is a recipient of the prestigious Clive Barnes Award. Later this spring, she will appear as a guest artist at the famed Mariinsky Theater in St. Petersburg, Russia. For HARIDs guests, Isabella performed the dazzling Gamzattis variation from La Bayadere. The clear highlight of the performance was the awe-inspiring pas de deux, Twilight, danced by Houston Ballet principal artists Sara Webb-Bardo and Connor Walsh. Sara graduated from HARID in 1996 and has enjoyed an illustrious career with Houston Ballet, dancing innumerable leading roles in the classical-ballet repertoire and many renowned 20th and 21st century works. Connor completed his studies at HARID in 2001. Like Sara, he has enjoyed a successful career with Houston Ballet dancing principal roles in most of the classical-ballet repertoire. The two dancers so impressed their HARID audience that the guests were left speechless for some time afterward. Following the performance, dinner was served for the guests in the schools Thomas M. Chastain Studio. A delicious three-course meal was provided by Silver Sac Catering. Afterward, the dance students were invited to join the guests for dessert. The evening was a wonderful success thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended. Underwriting for the event was generously provided by Arthur R. Redgrave, Alan B. Rosenthal, and the law firm Redgrave & Rosenthal LLP. To learn more about The HARID Conservatory and its upcoming Spring Performances, call 561-997-2677 or visit www.harid.edu.

Council member Michael Mullaugh was sworn in by Assistant City Manager Susan Saxton, and said he looks forward to bringing in his experience to work with the new team and continue to improve the quality of life in Boca Raton. State attorney Dave Aronberg swore in new council member Robert Weinroth, who enthusiastically thanked his wife for her support and for running their business while he went out into the neighborhoods to get to know the residents and hear their concerns. In closing Weinroth said: I am so honored and humbled to be here, and Im excited about the opportunity to serve with everyone up here. Again I thank all of you for your show of confidence by voting me in to this position. In her statement Constance Scott, who has one year left in her term, not only thanked Susan Whelchel for her leadership and guidance, but also made sure to thank Susans husband John Whelchel for leading the auxiliary of husbands who serve at an entirely different capacity when their wives are not around; I deeply appreciate your willingness to share Susan with us, for the greater good of our community she said. The most anticipated moment of the morning at City Hall came as Bocas new mayor Susan Haynie, took her oath and was sworn in by CFO Jeff Atwater. After 12 years on the city council, Haynie affirmed: this is the culmination of my public service, as she thanked the citizens of Boca for their confidence and trust in her. Haynie left no doubt that this was one of the toughest campaigns shes ever run, but assured everyone that the encouragement received by her supporters made it all worthwhile, and gave her the confidence to see it through. Regarding the challenges ahead, Haynie said: we will have some tough decisions to make, as these items (public safety pension reform; fiscal sustainability; balance of growth and infrastructure needs) must be addressed right away; but I know that this council, along with the community will come together so we can continue to have the prosperity and success that we already have here in Boca. The new city council team and mayor got to work right away after the speeches, naming Constance Scott as the new deputy mayor, Scott Singer as CRA chair with Robert Weinroth as vice chair. Haynie once again reminded the crowd that Boca has achieved great successes and that: only through collaboration and committed action can we continue to move forward. So lets roll up our sleeves, lets get together, and lets make it happen. Lets move this city into continued greatness. See p.B4 for more photosIsabella Boylston, Soloist

Edition 1805for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.com April 04, through April 10, 2014 COMMUNITY NEWS By: Quezia Salgado West Boca High School senior Ana Corra received the Junior Science and Humanities Symposium award this past January. The event took place on January 26th through 28th, and Corra tied with another student for 4th place. With the victory Corra qualifies to go to the national symposium in Washington D.C. on an all-paid trip in April. The research Corra presented at the symposium was conducted as part of the Student Science Training Program at the University of Florida. During the summer of 2013 she assisted Dr. John Sivinski in the United States Department of Agriculture building: At my lab, I worked with finding attractants of a species of parasitoid wasp, a natural predator of fruit flies. By releasing these parasitoids into nature, the population of fruit flies can be controlled in areas where fruits are being grown for exportation to other countries. Corra also explains that this method of controlling fruit fly pests by using other living organisms is called biological control, which is very important in suppressing the fruit fly population all over the world. Winning this award, however, is only one of Corras many accomplishments. She is actively involved in her school and community, as member of the National Honor Society, the Pay It Forward Club, and also works in her local church as Multimedia Assistant and Sunday school teacher. Corras contributions to her school and community are evidenced by everyone around her, Ana is a hardworking, honest, and intelligent student. She has mastered the art of balancing her studies with living a full life. I have had the good fortune of working with her for the past three years and have watched her become the young woman she is today says her Biology teacher Kane More. In addition to her outstanding performance in school, Corra has taken her knowledge outside of the classroom to tutor local students, helping them to improve their learning skills: She helped with my math; she goes at my pace and really takes the time to see what I need the most help with. Because of Ana I went from a C to an A, says 6th grader Ryan Rocha. Among Corras latest achievements is her acceptance to not one, but five universities, including FAU, University of Florida, Baylor University, Texas Christian University, and just last week the University of Miami. Based on such record, passion and dedication are a big part of Corras life, and motivation is also a contributing factor: I hope she is able to accomplish this dream, as it will be of great benefit for all the children she will work with as she pursues her career encourages Mrs. More. Although she has not made up her mind about where she wants to attend, Corra is certain that wherever she chooses to continue her education she will remain focused and diligent until she reaches her ultimate professional goal of becoming a pediatrician.Boca Raton Student Wins Prestigious Award Addison Mizner Elementary After School Dance Team Made National DebutOn Saturday, March 1st, 2014, the thirteen members of the Addison Mizner Elementary After School Competitive Dance Team made their national debut at Disneys Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida.

8 -Edition 180 April 04, through April 10, 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 A Lesson in GivingThere is a really strong presence of genuine philanthropy in South Palm Beach County as evidenced at two activities I was privy to attend this past week in our local communities, in fact, right here in Boca Raton. On Thursday, I attended KOP Mentoring Networks Salute to Excellence Dinner at Bogarts of Boca Raton and on Saturday the 6th Annual Boca Beach & Boating Bash at Spanish River Park. For full disclosure, I am the founder of KOP Mentoring Network and I also provided some consulting to the Beach Bash. Each year for more than 10 years, KOP Mentoring Network has honored five stellar role models as Men of Distinction around Fathers Day weekend. But this year, we altered that tradition by giving our heroes their flowers earlier on March 20. The intent was to showcase those who have given selflessly of themselves while reminding the community that the insight for and the creation of programs such as KOPMN, infrastructure, and improvements frequently comes from board members and supporters such as our honoree, Burt Rapoport, who have given back for years, often over the course of many decades. Rapoport is the well-known entrepreneur who has brought so many successful and well-loved restaurants, such as Deck 84, Henrys and Burt and Maxs into our communities. He has danced for the George Snow Scholarship Fund, given generously of his resources and time for the education of our disadvantaged young people, and he is do doing it again as I write! KOPMN has been providing the tutoring and mentoring needs of thousands of at-risk children since 1991. Through these efforts, children who might have ended up on the streets, on drugs or in gangs have been deterred from that fate, and instead have gone on to finish high school, enlist in the armed forces, enroll in college and many now have productive lives. Rapoport joined us this year to bring awareness and support to this mission. The award was not created to recognize mainstream leaders who are the bedrock in the community. Many of them get enough attention, most of which is very well deserved. But people like Rapoport and Jay Van Vechten, the founder and director of the Bash, tend to fly under the radar. Van Vechten started the event, in its current form, six years ago to create a fun day or a big party for those among us with physical and/or intellectual challenges. Miracles were performed on the Intracoastal as people on wheelchairs and anyone who wished, were allowed to board any of 20 boats and take a sail down the waterway. And Van Vechten loves a challenge. The long-time public relations guru, created what is today, undoubtedly the biggest, free, fun-day event in the nation for people with disabilities. Last year, more than 6,000 people attended and they are still trying to determine this years attendance. Someone hinted to me that next year, organizers hope to have a contest where more than 250 people in wheelchairs will do the same dance for five minutes. It might be a good idea to start practicing your Electric Slide now for that contest. The Man of the Year program is to showcase unsung heroes in the community, people who make a difference away from a bright spotlight. Professional athletes, skiers and skaters aspire for championship rings and Olympic gold medals. Oscar dreams inspire actors, directors and others in the film industry. But if local folks do what they do in hopes of winning a Man of the Year recognition, they probably arent the ideal candidates. When the recipients were told that they are being awarded the distinction, they typically are more humbled than excited. Thats when you know someone is worthy. And as Rapoport came forward to accept his honor recently, the sincerity and humility was quite evident. As I shared with the audience, Rapoport is a saint on loan from heaven, and as for Van Vechten, I think then there must be a green room in heaven awaiting him. C.

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. Eective Leaders Impart A Bigger VisionWhen my daughter, Megan, said she desired to become an occupational therapist. I did not understand this vocation or what such work would entail. That was before we attended an open house at Kansas University Medical Centers Graduate Program for Occupational Therapy. The program director first greeted all of the parents and prospective students, then proceeded to inform us that an occupational therapists job is to discover the dreams of the patient, then help them overcome their challenges to achieve those dreams. I had to marvel at this powerful picture of the impact an occupational therapist can have. The program director must have been a wise leader, because she could have described daily duties and would have been accurate in detailing what an occupational therapist does. Instead, she inspired and encouraged these students with a vision for changing lives. And in the process, she gained the support of parents who felt great enthusiasm about the meaningful roles their children could play in peoples lives. We see many biblical examples of the principle of inspiring followers with a great vision for the future. In Deuteronomy 3, for example, God said to Moses,But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead this people across and will cause them to inherit the land that you will see.God was not just giving Joshua an assignment He was imparting vision for leading the Israelites. A savvy leader inspires others with a vision bigger and more important than the specific responsibilities involved in performing the job. You might know the story of the brick mason observed chipping at a large piece of granite, working as part of a large construction crew in Europe. When a passerby asked what he was doing, the mason replied, Im building a cathedral! That man had vision. The challenge for us as leaders is in communicating this vision, enabling people to see their work as bigger than themselves. It starts with us you cannot give away something you do not possess, so we need to have the greater vision ourselves before we can pass it on to others. That is why I was so impressed by the description of what an occupational therapist actually does. We spend so much of our time in business focused on the bottom line, striving for profits, that we often lose sight of a greater vision. In your company, you know the products and services you provide. But what is your vision how can your business make a positive, meaningful difference in the lives of people that you touch? Here are two biblical examples. Make clear what you expect them to do. When Jesus initially approached His future disciples, He needed to convince them to leave their accustomed work as fishermen. He simply gave them their new job description: Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men (Matthew 4:19). Communicate how lives can be changed. At the close of His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ made clear to His followers what He expected them to do: go and make disciples of all nationsteaching them to obey everything I have commanded you (Matthew 28:19-20). You Need Not Remain the Way You Are!Human life is in constant motion. Change is not only possible but necessary for men and women who wish to maximize their experiences on earth. You need not neither should you, legitimately remain the way you are, if your goal is to advance in your essence and in your activities! There are people who get so stuck in old patterns that nothing can ever be altered in their life; the way they did things so many years ago appears to be the only manner they can attempt them in the present, and probably into the future as well! What functioned so well many years ago is being continually replaced by better, more effective procedures and devices which enable you to achieve the same, often with greater excellence, not to mention economy of time which also occurs. If you are to avoid remaining the way you are, you need to recognize new trends, study the ones which apply to your activities, learn them and apply the benefits they bring to what you do. As a person, you need to be asking more questions, discovering novel ways of operating, and maintaining an insatiable curiosity about more efficient patterns of seeking results, even in areas other than your own. One of my favorite words is the term improvement which should be constantly brought to our individual lives and to the way we fulfill tasks that depend on us. Those who stay stuck in the past more than likely are missing a fulfilling present, and may never see an amazing future which can be theirs. Yet, improvement comes solely through radical, reasonable changes! What applies to things external to you have also a corresponding internal element. Self-improvement is a greatly needed and much appreciated activity of any human life. Your communication may need improvement, your peculiar attitudes should be in constant repair, and your personal projection can display those elements that will attract rather than repulse fellow workers and potential clients. You need not be carried by the winds blowing in society all the time, but with a discerning eye you can discover what is needed and best, and move ahead with greater confidence and legitimate, updated contributions to the world we inhabit!

10 -Edition 180 April 04, through April 10, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comBy Jason SchwartzA five-hour standoff Monday at a home where a man barricaded himself and his 13-year-old son inside was the result of an argument between the man and his 16-year-old daughter over a curfew and using the car, authorities said. In the end, police charged Dominic Bernardine with two counts of Child Abuse. A judge imposed a $5,000 bond for each count of Child Abuse. No one was injured in the incident in the 600 block of Northwest 13th Street, just south of Glades Road and near Florida Atlantic University. The girl called police to the home around 1:30 p.m. after she said Bernardine, 40, pushed her to the ground, according to the arrest report. He also poured cans of Coca-Cola on her belongings and smashed her MacBook computer on a garage floor, she continued. She told police that he was, going wild pacing back-and-forth, cursing, yelling, screaming, sweating and foaming at the mouth, according to the report. The pair began arguing when the girl was 30 minutes late for curfew and Bernadine revoked her weekend privileges for her car. She wanted to use the car Monday but Bernardine decided he needed it, which kicked off another argument, police said. When officers arrived to the domestic disturbance, they found the girl outside and Bernardine holed up inside. Bernardine threw the girl out of the house as officers arrived, police said SWAT team members surrounded the home as hostage negotiators tried to get the man to surrender peacefully. Police locked down the neighborhood and ordered residents to stay inside. Bernardine surrendered shortly before 7 p.m.Barricaded Man Surrenders to SWAT after Hostage Situation in Home Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Deputy Shoots man Caught Having sex in his PoolBy Jason Schwartz An off-duty Palm Beach County sheriffs deputy shot a 49-year-old man he caught having sex with a woman in the pool of his West Boca apartment complex Saturday. Deputy Alex Alfonso, who lives in the Reflections of Boca Del Mar, confronted Tony Ribeiro and a woman he said were engaged in a sex act just before 12:30 a.m. and told them to leave the pool area, according to a report by the Palm Beach Countys Sheriffs Office. The angry man then returned to the scene in a threatening manner and Alfonso shot him, authorities said. The deputy identified himself as a law enforcement official and asked the amorous couple, who did not live in the housing complex, to leave the Reflections at Boca Del Mar complexs private pool, investigators said. The couple reluctantly complied, but a short time later the boyfriend returned and approached the deputy in a threatening manner as he was sitting in a lounge chair by the pool, according to the report. The two men got into a dispute, which escalated when the suspect allegedly tried to hit the deputy with a bottle of Pinot Noir, authorities said. That is when Alfonso pulled out his gun and fired, striking Ribeiro. Ribeiro was taken to Delray Medical Center, where he underwent surgery. Alfonso has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation, which is standard protocol.Mall Kiosk Owner Arrested in Knock-o Cartier Jewelry BustBy Jason SchwartzA Coconut Creek jewelry kiosk owner was arrested Thursday at Town Center Mall after undercover officers bought knockoff brand name jewelry from her business, police said. Hina Singh, 38, who operates the Tressor and Silver Connection kiosks at the mall, was charged with selling counterfeit goods valued at more than $20,000. An undercover investigator with A Action Investigations and Security Inc. went to the jewelry kiosk and bought a replica Cartier Juste Un Clou nail bracelet for $69 plus tax, Boca Raton police said. A real Cartier would have cost $6,850. Authorities said that Singh was ordered to stop selling counterfeit Cartier items in June 2013 and Chanel in 2011. The investigator, Eric Berger, told police the sales had continued under the counter and asked for their help. Two undercover investigators from A Action Investigations went to the Silver Connection and bought a Cartier bracelet, which was confirmed to be counterfeit. They also photographed several plastic bags, which had Cartier jewelry. Police got a search warrant on Singhs kiosk, called her to the mall and questioned her. She was then arrested. Singh said she stored multiple boxes labeled as Do Not Sell, underneath her kiosk. But an employee who was working the kiosk sold items from one of those boxes while Singh was on vacation in Panama. All of this happened to me because of one bracelet that an employee sold while I wasnt there, Singh said. Singh said her employee told officers she wasnt going to sell the bracelet to them, but after officers told her they were friends of Singhs and that they had bought bracelets before, the employee gave in. Singh admitted she should have removed the items from the kiosk after receiving cease and desist letter from the attorneys representing Cartier. I cant just throw away merchandise, she said. I dont have the heart to throw it away ... Thats my fault, it should not be sitting there. Police have not charged the employee. Delray Woman Sentenced to Probation for Money LaunderingBy CRA News Service A local woman who was charged in an international Internet gambling and money laundering scheme with a Boca Raton man, is sentenced to probation, the Boca Raton Tribune has learned. A New York judge says Michele Lasso of Delray Beach helped authorities recover $7 million from foreign banks for a widespread illegal sports gambling operation, spearheaded by loca resident Philip Gurian. Immigration officials in Albany detained Lasso, 30, for deportation to her native country, Panama, where managing bank accounts and sports betting in various countries is legal. Lasso and Gurian, 52, who faces sentencing on April 15, were charged with conspiracy to launder money while Jay Goldman, of Lake Worth, and Alan Gould, of Plantation, were charged with transmission of wagering information. Authorities said they ran an Internet sports betting operation. The complaint described Gurian as a master agent, aka bookie, who turned over a portion of the illegal gambling proceeds to owners of gambling websites. Gurian made 40 to 50 bets on one team at a time and amassed about $150,000 per day from October through December 2012, according to the complaint. Gurian had more than five people working for him across the country. Lasso, who owns beauty salons, helped Gurian move gambling money between the United States and Panama, prosecutors said. Authorities intercepted a phone conversation between Gurian and Lasso where she allegedly agreed to wire $4 million to a bank in Panama. The complaint included a transcript of a November 13 conversation between Gurian and a Mastercard customer service agent where he explained why he bought a VPN identifier for his iPad: I gamble on sports so I neededa VPN to make it look like the origin of my logs in were from Canada, Gurian told Mastercard. So they offer a service thats like a hide my IP address. The Broward County Sheriffs Office assisted the FBI with the investigation.

They love eating so its a fun way to get them excited about it Pi Day. Rodeley Pierre, who had never heard about Pie Day, thought it was a creative way to introduce the material. Its new to me, the 9th grader said. I thought it was a day to eat pie and then he explained it. I think it was good way to use it in the classroom. Middle school students at Saint Josephs Episcopal School celebrated with a special event that sweetened the learning process. To make Pi Day learning more hands-on, the Middle School Math Department hosted a pie in the face celebration. Students were invited to buy an opportunity to throw a pie in their math teachers face. The event raised enough money to buy scientific calculators and an iPad for the Middle School Math Department. We look forward to fun opportunities such as this one that give us the opportunity to be outside learning math concepts in a different way, said Tyler Thomas, president of the Student Council. We will always remember our Pi facts! Each month, school officials encourage middle school students to share ideas they think would make learning more exciting and fun. They then work diligently to match up their desires with opportunities available, which further enhance traditional inclassroom learning. Pi Day is a perfect example of that collaboration, Tami Pleasanton, head of school for Saint Josephs.

Blount is an Eagle Scout, the highest honor received from Boy Scouts of America, thus the name of the school. Blount and his executive team have been meeting for weeks with officials at Wellington Presbyterian Church, which currently governs the schools operations, to reach an agreement. Under the agreement, the church will be allowed to operate on the property for the next three years. During its first year, Eagle Arts Academy was approved to open with nearly 900 students from kindergarten through sixth grade and is now accepting applications. The charter has been approved for nearly 1,500 students at the end of a three year period. Dr. Liz Knowles, formerly of Pine Crest School, has been selected as Head of School. Knowles, a curriculum and reading specialist and an awardwinning educator and author, developed Eagle Arts Artademics curriculum with Blount. An educator for 40 years, Knowles has experience in cognitive skills development and the International Baccalaureate program. The school, scheduled to open in August, will focus on a mixture of performing and production arts and offer a cognitive skill development program for all ages, Blount said. The school will be retrofitted with a green screen studio, digital media editing facility, TV studio, plus an acting, dance and vocal studio, with additional improvements expected over the next 18 months. Technology will be infused into all areas of the curriculum to enhance academics, develop creativity, and extend learning through video, animation, and much more. We want to make sure these kids are ready for the world. They will learn how important the arts are to education and to the world, he said. Studies show that kids who are involved in the arts usually do better in school in all sorts of ways, including academically and socially. Blount has already worked to secure industry professionals from both sides of the entertainment industry to conduct specialty workshops for Eagle Arts students.Its OK to Talk Mental Illness in Youth PlannedBy Jason Schwartz Children who dont get the services they need for mental illness often wind up in the criminal justice system, experts in the medical field say.

His childrens books and live performances are vehicles for communicating his passion and inspiration igniting a love for the arts in young people. Its about self-expression and Im such an enthusiast because I know what it has added to my life, said Lithgow. Lithgow is passionate about the role creativity and the arts can play in expanding the traditional approach to education, literacy and life. He was the perfect fit to continue the STEAM dialog, said Yvonne Boice, event chair and foundation board member. Lithgow represented my lifelong commitment to both the arts and education. The STEAM initiative includes the arts because we understand the integral role and basic contribution art makes to science, technology, engineering and math. The Initiative was created to impact the projected shortage of local, skilled professionals in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering Arts and Math) fields. The goal is to raise money to support STEAM scholarships, STEAM academic programs and to increase the number of student internships and partnerships with local businesses. The five-year initiative launched in 2013 featuring computer icon Steve Wozniak and has raised nearly $1 million. During the Q & A session, he spoke candidly and drew on the creative and comedic skills seen in his Emmy-winning portrayal of the absurd alien commander Dick Solomon on Third Rock From the Sun, and his equally intense but dark Trinity Killer, in Dexter. Our school systems are embattled with cost cutting measures which has meant the arts first. An enlightened mind is an open mind and open mind is a keenly educable mind, says Lithgow. The actor is best known for his iconic roles in theatre, film and television and was nominated for Oscars for The World According to Garp, Terms of has appeared in more than 30 films and been nominated for 11 Emmy Awards and won five; He has written eight New York Times best-selling childrens picture books and a memoir.

www.bocaratontribune.com Edition 180B3Section B April 04, through April 10, 2014 Entertainment Skip Sheffield Inset Ear Plugs for American Idiot S P O T L I G H T Fair Warning: American Idiot is more rock concert than musical theater. The management thoughtfully provides earplugs at Broward Center, where this rock opera by Green Day runs through April 6. I give this warning for older theater-goers who may be unfamiliar with Green Day or the genre of punk rock. American Idiot is performed quickly without intermission in about 90 minutes, but some people bailed anyway. I on the other hand was acquainted with Green Day and the concept album that inspired American Idiot. Some of the tunes, all composed by guitarist Billy Joe Armstrong with additional lyrics by Armstrongs band mates Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool, became big radio hits. The original concept by Billy Joe Armstrong has been fleshed out by original Broadway director Michael Mayer. Armstrong added additional songs from the Green Day catalog from st Century Breakdown and a B side called When Its Time. The first thing you notice about the set is multiple television screens from floor to ceiling. Thats because the story is set in Jingletown, USA, where everyone watches TV incessantly. The frustration of the youth of Jingletown is expressed in the first song, American Idiot. Johnny (Jared Nepute) is trying to cheer up his buddy Will (Casey OFarrell). They are joined by Tunny (Dan Tracy) to smoke dope and drink beer while they sing self-explanatory songs like Jesus of Suburbia, City of the Damned and I Dont Care. A girl named Heather (Mariah McFarlane) joins the group to sing Dearly Beloved, and all join in on Tales of Another Broken Home. Subplots, such as they are, involve Tunnys ill-fated enlistment in the Army and his subsequent romance with Extraordinary Girl (Taylor Jones); Johnnys coping with his drug-craving alter ego St. Jimmy (Carson Higgins); Johnnys infatuation with a mystery girl he calls Whatsername (Olivia Puckett), and Will and Heathers rocky transition to parenthood when she becomes pregnant. Everyones dashed dreams are expressed in the tenderest ballad, Wake Me Up When September Ends. The show features an onstage band led by a most animated conductor and keyboardist (including accordion), Evan Jay Newman. While American Idiot does not have a conventional happy ending, dont make the mistake of running out early, because the coolest guitarintense number and best Green Day song are saved for a final encore. Tickets are $34.50-$79.50, including earplugs, and you would be wise to use them. Call 954-462-0222 or go to www.browardcenter.org. Boca Bacchanal Wine & Food Festival

The Bobcats competed against 23 other high school JROTC unit finalists out of 60 units in the state. This is the sixth state title for the Bobcats. To prepare for this competition, the cadets began hitting the books, participating in physical fitness training and practicing drill maneuvers two weeks before school started last August. Cadet Captain Jaymarie ColonPerez led the Bobcat Battalion to this State Championship. The Cadets finished first in Academics, Armed Basic Drill, Unarmed Basic Drill, and Overall Drill. They also placed second in Personnel Inspection. Cadets Jennifer Menke and Jack Woods took top honors on the Academic Test, placing first. The field meet was very tight, down to the last two events. It was between the Bobcats Battalion and their rivals, Flanagan High School. The Bobcats ran like the wind to beat Flanagan in the 100 yard and 200 yard relays, said Lt. Cmdr. Ken Bingham, the naval science instructor at Boca Raton High. When the dust finally settled, the Bobcats prevailed with first place overall, and Flanagan second, Bingham said. All these efforts have gained the Cadets a well-deserved undefeated year in competition. Congratulations to the cadets and instructors SCPO Tim Core and CPO Edwin Morales.

I am covering 3 general areas which will be discussed in reference to how this Flood Insurance Bill will impact your bottom line: Changes for Real Estate Buyers and Sellers, Changes for Homeowners, and for Homeowners Whom Have Already Paid. In the first part of this 2 part series we discussed the changes of the new Flood Insurance Bill and its impact for Real estate buyers and sellers. Today I will go over what changes were made and how this will affect homeowners. Also, what this means if you are a homeowner whom has overpaid for Flood Insurance. Changes for Current Homeowners Under the New Bill if you own a home, there is good news and bad news with this Bill compared to the previous flood insurance laws. GOOD NEWS: FEMA cannot raise your flood rate more than 18 percent per year. Also, FEMA cannot raise flood insurance rates within a single property class, on average, more than 15% per year. When raising the yearly rates, FEMA must take the property value into consideration. They must NOT exceed 1% of the propertys value. For example: They should try to keep the yearly increase below $2,500 for a property owner in a $250,000 home. BAD NEWS: If you are currently paying less than their actuarial rate, then the new Bill states and directs FEMA to increase flood rates by at least 5% for most homes. The actuarial rate is considered to be a calculation/ balance between the chance of flood damage and the premium being paid. In order to help reduce the $24 Billion deficit FEMA currently has, there will be an annual surcharge for all homeowners with a National Flood Insurance Policy: $25 for Primary Residences and $250 for second homes and businesses. No time frame was stated other than it will be charged until subsidized policies reach full risk rates. If You Overpaid As A Homeowner UNDER THE NEW BILL: If your home was originally built to code before they reassessed and changed the flood zone area then the property is grandfathered-in at the lower rate. If this happened and you overpaid as a homeowner then you should receive a refund. The Bill was very unclear as to when you will receive a refund. There is still a lot of clarification and calculations that need to be discussed and implemented before they will release anything else. This Bill goes into great depth and this is only a summary to help you better understand what is taking place.

Mr. Gora can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora Robert J.

A veteran journalist, he has written Tufting Legacies (iUniverse); Business At Its Best: Timeless Wisdom from Proverbs for Todays Workplace (River City Press); and has coauthored with David A. Stoddard, The Heart of Mentoring (NavPress). For more information, see www.leaderslegacy.com or his blogs, www.bobtamasy.blogspot.com and www.bobtamasy.wordpress.com. FAITHBy Robert J. Tamasy How Good are You at Worrying?One of the great wonders of the workplace is the variety of talents and abilities we observe. Some people are natural leaders, others find it easier to follow and support those who lead. Some are especially gifted in administration, directing and delegating tasks, while others are adept at personally handling a multitude of details. Some have natural skills at sales and marketing they could sell ice to polar bears in northern Canada. Others are talented speakers, while some do their best communicating through writing. But if there is one skill most of us possess in equal measure, it is the capacity for worrying. If we own a business or hold top executive responsibilities, we worry about matters ranging from how to plan for future uncertainties to how to meet next weeks payroll. We worry about deadlines, job promotions, finding a new job, or whether we will receive welldeserved (we believe) pay increases. If our business relies on a small number of key clients, we worry about losing them. We worry about how to find new customers. We worry about our competition making changes that could have a detrimental impact on our business. We worry about the weather; the local, national and world economy; the costs of fuel; or how to keep pace with everchanging technology and market trends. We are so accomplished at worrying that we even worry when there is absolutely nothing to worry about. We start worrying that soon there will be something to worry about. Maybe this helps us to feel we will be better prepared for when (and if) it happens. One of the reasons we worry is because it makes us feel like we are doing something when there is nothing else we can do. We feel good to be concerned about a situation even if we are helpless to do anything about it. But what does worrying accomplish? Experts say at least 90% of the things that worry us never occur, so we have wasted considerable mental and emotional energy on nothing. Including myself among those that find it easy to worry, I find it comforting and reassuring to regularly remind myself what the Bible has to say about worry: Instead of worrying, pray. Worrying deprives us of sleep, saps our energy, and disrupts all sense of inner peace. What if you could simply transfer those concerns to someone else with the unshakable assurance that they will be properly addressed? Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7). Let God do the worrying. Have you ever tried to lift something heavy and felt relief when someone stronger than you volunteered to carry the weight? That is exactly what God offers to do for us when we commit our worries to Him. Cast all your anxiety on him (God) because he cares for you (1 Peter 5:7). God wants to carry the burden. Has anyone ever told you, Do not worry. I have it under control? This is exactly what God is telling us. We worry about things outside of our control, or things that probably will not happen. God tells us, Relax. I will take care of it. Take a load off yourself.Jesus said, Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28). The Boca Raton Tribune Department of Children and FeloniesKudos to The Miami Herald and its investigational series on DCF, Floridas Department of Children and Families, which I have chosen to call The Department of Children and Felonies. Occasionally over my years of practice I have represented parents whose child was taken from them by The Department on slight evidence. For instance there was a little girl in Broward being examined by her young pediatrician who reports to DCF that there was an odd rash around her private parts which might mean that her father was doing what he shouldnt. The child was removed from the parents and given to the wifes sister as a foster parent, with no contact with the dad. Six months later, after an experts examination of the girl and the few months old photographs the finding was reversed. However the Heralds stories, published and to be published depicted the stories of over 400 children dying in the last few years after being replaced by the DCF in the home of parents, or one parent and his or her live in post divorce partner. Not that any death of anyones child is to be taken lightly but these children were in homes in which the parent or parents has lost custody of a child after an investigation and court hearing but had regained the child after some intervention by DCF and the court system. Stories of a child who was killed by the homes friendly boa constrictor which killed her in her bed, or a little boy who died, suffocated by the drunken or stoned mom who rolled over her has she slept, to children hit by cars and trucks while wandering the streets at night where there parent had a night job and no baby sitter. Why were these endangered children returned to their dangerous parents, or one of them you ask? Why were these trustless parents trusted with life itself? There are a few reasons that I am aware of: 1. Our states policy to reunify the family unit rather that look only for the best interest of the children, as we do in dissolution of marriage court cases. 2. The presumptive process in removing children from home to foster parent and returning them to the intact parental home is childish and unsophisticated. Parents are interviewed, and instructed to visit a psychologist a time or two, and directed to read some books or pamphlets on parenting. 3. The parent has other simple tasks to accomplish and meet with investigators at their homes from time to time. 4. According to the Herald, and in my experience the DCF investigators are marginally educated and over worked. They and their regular lawyers are so enamored by their unification success they fail to count the dead kids in their wake. 5. These lawyers and investigators appear before the same judges day after day and independent lawyers have little chance to persuade this powerful triangle to allow the foster children to remain in foster care if reunification appears to be a frightening risk. Until the best interests of the at risk children becomes most important to every judge children will continue to needlessly die. Until the investigators and other semi-educated professionals become more educated and more professional and until they lose control over the judges children will continue to die.

Matt Ackerman drew a two-out walk in the eighth, giving Lynn runners on first and second. Palm Beach Atlantic (13-17-1) head coach Ken Bottenfield walked to the mound for a conference but decided to stick with his starter Tyler Scheuer. Ahead in the count 3-1, Gonzalez ripped a hanging off-speed pitch inside the first base line, scoring pinch runner Cory Gibson for the winning run. The Sailfish had plenty of opportunities in the first three innings against Bobby Kruse, stranding six runners in the first three innings of play. Each frame, though, Kruse was able to navigate through trouble to keep PBA off the scoreboard. He allowed four hits and issued two walks with three strikeouts in three innings of work. Stemle used his speed to generate the first run of the game in the third. The junior from Lake Worth, Fla., stole his team-leading 18th base in an attempt at third and was able to trot home when catcher Spencer Castros throw went into left field. Kyle Butcher surrendered the tying run in the fourth. The senior southpaw fanned two of the first three batters he faced until a week ground ball found its way up the middle to score Castro. Palm Beach Atlantic was able to take a 2-1 lead in the fifth after Castro drove home another run with a single to right field. Luckily for Lynn, Castro was caught between first and second on the throw to the plate and was tagged out in a rundown. Falleta tossed three scoreless innings of relief and struck out Ryan Gerber looking to end the seventh and the Sailfish threatening with two runners on base. Andrew Melchor came on in the ninth to pitch a 1-2-3 inning, with one strikeout, for his fifth save. Freshman Steals Home as FA U Defeats Number 12 FloridaFreshman Cain Spangler stole home in the top of the 11 inning on Tuesday to give the Florida Atlantic University baseball team a 5-4 win over No. 12 Florida in Gainesville. Senior Kevin Alexander, who missed the last two weeks due to illness, returned in top form, earning the win in three innings of work. FAU hit five doubles and freshman Esteban Puerta earned four consecutive hits and went 4-for-5 on the day to lead the Owls at the plate.Stephen Kerr, Brendon Sanger and CJ Chatham each picked up multiple hits on the night. The Owls (16-12) fell behind early as the Gators (19-10) posted three runs in the first inning. FAU would respond in the top of the second with singles by Ricky Santiago, Puerta and Kevin Abraham. Chatham hit an RBI groundout to score Santiago, shrinking the Florida lead to 3-1. Chatham cut the lead in half in the fifth inning by hitting an 0-2 pitch over the left center wall for his third home run of the season. With two outs in the sixth, sophomore Billy Endris hit a double to left center and Puerta singled on the next pitch to drive him in and tie the game at 3-3. The Gators retook the lead in the bottom of the frame on a sacrifice fly after a hit, a hit batter and a double steal. The Owls wouldnt go away, however, as they tied the game once more in the seventh as freshman Kerr and Sanger each doubled. FAU loaded the bases in the ninth after Chatham and Kerr singled to lead off the inning, but was unable to get any runs across. Florida put two on with no outs in the bottom of the ninth and had the potential game-winning run on third before the Owls extinguished the rally under Alexanders guidance. Spangler and Sanger each hit singles in the 11th before Tyler Rocklein reached on a fielders choice that left runners at the corners with two outs. With a 1-2 count on Santiago, FAU Head Coach John McCormack called for a double steal. Rocklein took off for second, drawing the attention of the Florida defense. With perfect timing, Spangler took off for home and beat the throw to score the go-ahead run. Alexander struck out two in the bottom of the 11th to seal FAUs seventh victory all-time against the Gators.

With your weight more on your left foot, youll make contact with the club swinging outward. Maintaining the angle between your right arm and the shaft also keeps the cluhead swinging out more. These are the major pieces that help the club swing in to out and promote a draw. In a short time, youll be hitting a combination of pushes and draws. Every ball will start right, and some will draw toward the target. A push and a draw have the same starting direction, but with the draw the face is slightly closed to the swing path, producing right-to-left curve. With the push, the face is square to the path, so the ball flies straight right. If youre hitting only pushes, close the face to the path slightly by moving the ball farther back or moving more weight to your front foot. By Stan Moore Dear friends we will be starting a series which will be called, "THE PEDRO PROJECT." The Pedro Project will have(me) Stan Moore, PGA Teaching Professional, teaching our associate editor Pedro Heizer how to swing a golf club and learn to play the game. Friends, I must tell you that this will be a daunting task. Pedro has a terrible golf swing, so I really have my work cut out for me here. Whew!! Please send me some aspirin, because you just don't understand how bad it is. Each week I will be giving you a report of Pedro's progress,(if he has any). So look for the weekly results, along with some pictures. I do promise we will YELL FORE, after we hit the ball.The Pedro Project
30 -Edition 180 April 04, through April 10, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comSports SPORTS Lynn Lacrosse Falls in Home OpenerIt was a beautiful day on the campus of Lynn University for the lacrosse team to host the first game in school history at the brand new Bobby Campbell Stadium. Unfortunately the Fighting Knights fell, 18-7, to Colorado Mesa (4-2), but there was much to be celebrated. Taylor Ferrino recorded 20 saves in the loss while Tyler Janvrin had his first career hat trick. Colorado Mesas Tom Hurley scored the first goal of the game with 9:05 remaining in the first quarter. The Mavericks would score once more to take a 2-0 lead heading into the second quarter. Michael Beimford opened the second quarter with a goal at 14:40 to take a 3-0 lead for CMU. Tyler Janvrin scored the first Lynn goal on Malfitano Field when Chris DAngelo passed to Janvrin just outside the crease. Colorado Mesa scored four more goals in the second quarter to take an 8-1 lead at halftime. CMU scored the first two goals in the second half before Dante Egan scored unassisted to cut Lynns deficit to 9-2. Austin Pridham scored unassisted at 9:12 for the Mavericks 10th goal but the Blue & White answered back less than a minute later when Joey Bacarella found Danny Egan who fired a shot past Colorado Mesas goalkeeper for Lynn to trail 103. Brian Kiel scored unassisted with 1:34 remaining in the third quarter. Lynn opened the fourth quarter in a 12-4 hole which expanded when Michael Beimford and Hurley each scored for the Mavericks in the first five minutes of the quarter. Kiel scored his second unassisted goal of the game with 7:25 remaining in regulation. CMU scored four unanswered goals over the next four minutes before Janvrin scored back-to-back goals in the final two minutes of play, his second goal was assisted by DAngelo. DAngelo tabbed a career-best 20-of26 face off wins at the x for the Blue & White while also grabbing a career-high 15 ground balls. CMUs goalkeeper Brad Brandenburg stopped four shots while earning the win between the pipes for the Mavericks while Pridham scored the only hat trick for his team. Six other Mavericks had multi-goal games. Janvrins hat trick comes as the first for Lynn University at Bobby Campbell Stadium while it also marked his fifth multi-goal game of the season and put him in sole possession of second most goals on the season for Lynn. Kiels multi-goal game also marked his fifth of the season. Strikers Fall 2-0 to Don Bosco FCThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers lost to Don Bosco FC by the score of 2-0 in front of a sold out of over 5,000 fans in Parc St. Therese in Haiti. The team helped inaugurate the newly renovated stadium in Petion-Ville, Haiti, just outside of Port au Prince. The narrow turf field and speed of Don Bosco proved a challenge early as the team struggled to find quality shots. Strikers keeper Lionel Brown made two great saves in the first 15 minutes, keeping the team in the game. The Strikers Martin Nuez, Shawn Chin and Mark Anderson all took several shots early, but were unable to find their mark. Don Bosco scored 18 minutes into the match on a header by Don Boscos Benji Distama to the delight of the crowd. Just two minutes later, Don Bosco capitalized on a defensive mistake by the Strikers, Delvin Junior took a shot from 30 yards out that went over Brown. The Strikers were able to settle down after the second score and went into the lockerrooms down 2-0. After a short lightning delay just minutes into the second half, the Strikers played more aggressively for the final 40 minutes but were unable to score. The Strikers best change came in the 70th minute when Nunez received a cross but was unable to put it in the back of the net. Despite the weather in the second half, the atmosphere at the stadium was festive throughout the entire game. The fans were singing throughout the whole match, and the Haitian crowd would cheer every great move by either team.
