Artist Yaacov Heller, of Gallery 22, built an 8-foot menorah that is now the central part of the new Weiner Rosenberg Family Sculpture Garden, dedicated in the memory of Eleanor Weiner. The menorah is the center of the sculpture garden, which will be used to teach future students of the Bnai Torah Congregation the rich Jewish heritage. The sculpture is all bronze, however the menorah has a wood-look to it as to represent that all are from on branch and are all connected. The base of the menorah lies the original 12 tribes of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Judah, Issacher, Zebulun, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Ephraimand, and Manesseh. The seven-branched candelabrum is symbolically guarded by two Lions of Judah on a granite pedestal and is located in a new meditation area. The whole idea for the project began in July 2013 when Paul Weiner came in to Gallery 22 and reminded Heller of the last time he was in one of his galleries. The last time Paul and his late wife Eleanor visited Heller was back in Jerusalem, Israel at 22 King David St, diagonally across the infamous King David Hotel.This year is busy at Sandpiper Shores for Michelle Gunning as she continues to collaborate to develop lessons with classroom teachers, to manage the student morning news show, grade teachers and students.

4 -Edition 181 April 11, through April 17, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comCommunity News Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Boca Raton Walkathon to Raise Public Awareness of Armenian GenocideThe Walk Against Genocide, a two-mile walk which will take place Saturday, April 12 at Mizner Park, is organized by the Armenian Genocide Commemoration (AGC) Inc., representatives from various Armenian American organizations and churches in South Florida. The mission of the AGC is of the 20th century and that genocide continues to occur in modern times, all over the world. In the past few weeks, Armenians have watched history repeat itself as foreign Islamic extremists sacked the predominantly Christian Armenian town of Kessab, Syria, displacing thousands of peaceful Armenians. Arsine Kaloustian-Rosenthal, AGCs Public Relations Director, explained: The itself commemorating the genocide within anniversary one year away, there seems to be a stirring in Armenian communities all over the world. By planning highly visible events such as this walkathon, we are throwing open the door to all who wish to learn more about us, our culture, and the genocide that took our ancestors from us. As the saying goes, all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. We must raise our voices together to condemn not only the Armenian Genocide but also the Holocaust, the Assyrian, Greek, Ukrainian, Cambodian, Rwandan and Darfur genocides, among others. Today, the Armenian Genocide remains the second-most studied genocide event, after the better-known Jewish Holocaust of World War II. In fact, when Adolf Hitler was asked how the world would respond to his Final Solution plan --the extermination of the Jewish people in Europe --he replied, without compunction: Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians? Turkey, the successor state of the Ottoman Empire, has yet to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide, despite repeated calls from historians and world leaders. Over 20 countries and 40 Genocide committed by Turkey, including the State of Florida. David Silvers, Candidate for Florida House District 89, will be speaking at the event and has stated It is important to acknowledge both the suffering and the resilience of our fellow world citizens. Recognition of Turkeys atrocities toward the Armenian people in 1915 is a necessary step in that process. An injury to one is an injury to us all. A traditional Armenian performance by renowned musicians Joe Zeytoonian and Myriam Eli will take place following the walk, and food and refreshments will be provided. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m., while the walk starts at 8:30 a.m. at the Mizner Park Amphitheater, located at 590 Plaza Real in Boca Raton. Registration for the Walk Against Genocide is $19.15, including a T-shirt and a bottle of water. Children under eight years old may participate for free.

The Journey Church Oering 50 Cents O Per Gallon Saturday, April 12After a tremendous response to their Gas Buy Down in 2013, The Journey Church of Boca Raton is again offering the community $0.50 off per gallon on gasoline on Saturday, April 12. The Journeys Gas Buy Down will take place this Saturday, April 12, 11:00am 1:00pm, at the Valero Gas Station located at 1380 N. Federal Highway in Boca Raton (just north of Glades Road). The church will buy down the price of gas by $0.50/ gallon for as many people as possible during the two hour time frame between 11:00am and 1:00pm, giving drivers the opportunity to take advantage of the lowest gasoline prices in the region. After the opportunity to share Gods love in such a practical way last year, we decided to offer another Gas Buy Down this year, said Nelson Searcy, Lead Pastor of The Journey Church. Since rising gas prices this has been a great way to be a blessing to the people of our community. Volunteers from the three-year-old church will be on hand to pump gas and give a break to the wallets of members of the community. The Journey is a new church in Boca Raton, featuring services each Sunday with casual dress, rockin music and practical teaching. This community outreach opportunity connects nicely with the Easter season. The Gas Buy Down The Journey will be serving the community. The Journey has successfully partnered with Boca Helping Hands and 4KIDS of South Florida on outreach projects. Searcy says the church is always on the lookout for creative ways to make a difference in peoples lives. The Journey Church is a casual, contemporary, Christian church that meets each Sunday at 10:30am, at Boca Raton Community High School (just off Glades Road at I-95, exit 45). Since its beginning in February 2011, The Journey has grown to a congregation of several hundred that meet each week.

A federal jury in New York found portfolio managers Annette Bongiorno and Bonventre, and computer programmers Jerome OHara and George Perez guilty on all counts, including securities fraud and conspiracy to defraud clients. The three men and two women, hired by failed to convince the jury in Manhattan they were ignorant of Madoffs fraud while being part of the inner circle at his New YorkThe defendants will be sentenced in late July. roles in constructing and maintaining the house of cards that was the Madoff investment fraud, U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said in a statement. The scheme these defendants helped perpetrate cost innumerable investors their life savings. Now it likely will cost the defendants their freedom. Roland Riopelle, a lawyer for Bongiorno, said in an e-mail that he was saddened by the verdict and will appeal. Gordon Mehler, a lawyer for OHara, declined to comment on the verdict. Bongiorno was hired in 1968, when she was 19. Bonventre and Crupi joined in their early 20s. OHara and Perez, both hired in the 1990s, said they didnt have experience in the securities industry before then. The defense also called attention to the youth and inexperience of the workers when spent years recording trades for Madoff that didnt exist, without truly understanding what she was doing. [Madoff] told me what to do, she said. I typed. Bongiorno also claimed that she didnt know what the S&P 500 Index was, even though she admittedly spent years staring at a Bloomberg terminal as she backdated Madoff, 75, is serving a 150-year-prison sentence after pleading guilty in March 2009 to charges stemming from a Ponzi scheme that is estimated to have cost investors more than $17 billion of principal. He was arrested in December 2008. Nine other people have pleaded guilty in connection with Madoffs fraud, some government witnesses. As the verdict was read in court, there was no visible reaction from the defendants, who faced among them a total of 31 counts from securities fraud to tax evasion. The list of Bernard Madoffs victims Andrew Frisch, a lawyer for Bonventre, said after the verdict, adding that he plans to appeal. At the trial, prosecutors introduced as evidence thousands of pages of internal documents seized from Madoffs investment Madoffs right-hand man, Frank the government and implicated each of the urged the jury to disregard his testimony, calling him an inveterate liar desperate to avoid a lifelong prison term. But several jurors interviewed after the verdict said they found DiPascali credible. It was pretty captivating, said Sheila Amato, an art teacher. Jurors scoffed at the testimony of Bongiorno and Bonventre, who surprised trail watchers by taking the stand in their own defense and denying knowing about any fraud. They should be embarrassed, said Nancy Goldberg, an instructional assistant for at-risk public school students. She said their testimony was simply not believable. While there was little dispute that various defendants engaged in activities such as backdating fake trades and creating false documents, the case turned on whether they knew at the time that they were aiding Madoffs fraud. The defendants had said Madoff duped them into becoming unwitting accomplices. Madoff, they said, created silos inside the entire picture and used his considerable charm to keep them in the dark. Why wouldnt she believe him? Riopelle, the lawyer for Bongiorno, said during his closing argument, arguing that Madoff convinced her that backdating trades was allowed. He was the head of the was by design, by Mr. Madoffs design, living in her own little bubble. But prosecutors pointed to reams of documents, many featuring handwritten notes from the defendants, as clear evidence the defendants knew what was happening. The notion that these defendants didnt know the trading was fake is an absurdity, Assistant U.S. Attorney Randall Jackson said at the end of the trial. Asked whether the defense could have anything differently, Eric Breslin, a lawyer for Crupi, said, Madoff was a tall mountain to climb.Boca Woman Among Mado employees found guilty in conspiracy case Sandy Grossman, Boca Resident, Acclaimed Sports TV Director, DiesBy Rachel CohenSandy Grossman, who directed a record 10 Super Bowl broadcasts and spent more than two decades in the TV truck working with announcers Pat Summerall and John Madden, died Wednesday at his home in Boca Raton. He was 78. Mr. Grossman died of cancer, his son Dean said. He could just make magic, Madden told The Associated Press in a phone interview. When Madden, the former coach, calling games, Mr. Grossman was right beside him. That homework paid off when the analyst would make a point on air and the director would immediately pull up the right clip to illustrate it. His amazing directorial talents on the NFL truly distinguished him as one of the great directors in the history of sports television, CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said. Mr. Grossman also directed 18 NBA eight Emmys. He was a brilliant director and a thoughtful colleague, Fox Sports President Eric Shanks said. He mentored many of us here and throughout the sports TV industry, and we learned more from him than he could imagine. His innovations included using music to go into the break during basketball games. After Mr. Grossman played The Hustle by Van McCoy, his son recalled, sales of the song skyrocketed, so the musician sent him gold records as a thank you. Visitors to his TV truck over the years included Richard Nixon and Oliver Stone, Dean Grossman said. If there wasnt an envelope to push, Sandy would create one, said former Fox Sports Chairman David Hill, a senior executive vice president for News Corp. As Madden put it, He had guts. With producer Bob Stenner, Mr. Grossman guided the celebrated partnership after their move to Fox. The understated style of Summerall, who died last April, paired with Maddens booming enthusiasm became the soundtrack of the NFLs expanding popularity. They created a behind-the-curtain team which equaled the legendary front-of-house team of Pat Summerall and John Madden, Hill said. Watch any NFL game, and you will see Sandy Grossmans legacy. He was a legend. director before that was standard practice. Madden recalled how Mr. Grossman began isolating a camera on linemen so the analyst could delve into the nuances of the game. All that preparation made Mr. Grossman like a successful defensive coordinator whos ready to handle anything the offense brings, Madden said. In his case, that meant sharp, seamless broadcasts. Ill see some old games he did, and they still hold up, Madden said. Mr. Grossman is survived by his wife of 51 years, Faithe, four children and eight grandchildren.

Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media The First TimeBy Clay RobinsonWhen working with young adults, I try to help them prepare for a wide variety of issues that may occur at some point in life. While listening to an old familiar song on the radio the other day, my thoughts bounced from the good on some of the conversations Ive had during group sessions. I thought about the variances between males and females and how our early experiences set a encounter, be it love or lust. things for all of us, yet the outcomes can like? Were you in love, thinking that he/ she was perfect for you and you felt like this was the beginning of the rest of your life? Or was it a sexual conquest with no intentions of maintaining a relationship? It really doesnt matter what our individual reasoning was, the thing that matters most is the outcome. done differently? Exactly what is expected from two young people in their teens or early twenties? Personally, I dont know many young males or females that truly have an extended outlook on life. Most young people naturally see things short term. you want it to be or not. Aside from a child that is brought into a relationship doomed to fail, there are also emotional leaves a person so hurt that they turn to drugs or alcohol; they feel worthless, become abusive to themselves or to others. There are far too many poor choices to address at this time, but these are some of the many things to think about. Dont get me wrong, being negatively impacted by an intimate relationship can happen at any age, but sometimes depending on our age and life experiences, we may be better equipped mentally to handle those situations. I remember when I was 17 years old my brother Al, age 19, was close friends with a young man by the name of Bill. Bill was a very bright young man who did well in school and came from a good be his last. When the relationship with the young lady didnt work out, Bill put a shot gun in his mouth and pulled the trigger. His father found his body. I have also been told countless other stories of young love going wrong and ending up in everything from assaults to suicide when those relationships are coming to an end or have already ended. And of course lets not forget all of the single parent situations and kids living in lust situations. We never know how things will end, but parents need to educate young people more about love and lust. I know its sometimes hard to make them understand not looking past the now and into the future, especially when they truly believe that this is their future. When they cant see past the point of this love relationship or simply the lust they feel at that moment, just remind them that a lifetime can depend Letter Guidelines Letters to the EditorGood Evening. My name is Mark Seigel and my address is 99 SE Mizner Blvd. Thank you for providing me with the opportunity to share my experience with certain behavior harming the welcoming, respectful community that we aim to protect. Such harm emanates from a restaurant known as 101 Cantina (located at 133 SE Mizner Blvd), which, through its improper and unlawful actions, is degrading its neighbors quality of life. In 2011, when forming my business, Veritas Financial Partners, I chose to locate it in Boca Raton, because of the business-friendly environment and sophisticated downs that my fellow small business owners know well. As I stand here today, I stimulate our local economy through use of local vendors. I dont tell you this to brag. I tell you this because it is a story that all of us share. Each one of us, God-willing, is here in Boca Raton because this is where we want to be. We want to practice our trades, raise our families and support the prosperity of a community that we love in a manner that is respectful to one another. That is the very foundation of our community. I chose to live in Boca Raton for many of the same reasons that I chose to establish my business here: friendly people, culture, pristine city-developed parks, Palmetto Place, to be centrally located to these attractions, and I still love the neighborhood in which I call home. For the last 9 months, however, the peace and respect that are cornerstones of our community have been upended and egregiously violated by 101 Cantina, whose disrespectful and unlawful behavior has marred our great citys value system. 101 Cantina operates as a raucous drinking establishment for college students--many of whom, according to public records, are below the legal drinking age. It has assaulted our community with obnoxious music, intoxicated customers, and violent I have personally witnessed young men and women driving their cars into surrounding parking lots to consume copious amounts of alcohol in an activity referred to as pre-gaming prior to walking into Cantina. I am also aware of to be served. And I am painfully aware of the constant barrage of noise pollution and police lights. I wish that 101 Cantinas conduct were limited to the weekends, but in fact it remains perhaps best known for an event it calls Techno Tuesday, which it robustly advertises as a rave music environment, with a main draw being that alcohol is free from 10pm-11pm. One need only peruse 101 Cantinas own marketing materials on its public Twitter account to see the excessive debauchery that it aims to promote: organization being a direct reference to Greek fraternities and sororities at FAU are encouraged to expose themselves in exchange for beaded jewelry tradition I believe that every business should have the chance to attract customers, but I dont believe this should come at well-being of the community. Through its runins with law enforcement, 101 Cantina has been given more than its fair share of chances to operate in manner that is not adverse to its neighbors, and time and time again, it has proven itself to be a pariah with respect to the values of the people of Boca Raton. I humbly ask the City Council to take action to remedy this situation and protect the home that we all share from this disruptive and disrespectful actor. Thank you. Mark Seigel

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. The Value of FriendshipsPersons who dont care for other people, have a hard time understanding that friendships can be genuine and lasting; they are also cherished by those who make a sincere effort to establish and maintain them. Regardless of geographical distances separating true friends, their relationships can be just as real as if they resided in the same city, and were able to see one another with some regularity. Since my childhood I came to learn have also viewed friends always as divine agents, ready at all times to encourage, ever willing to respond when contacted, and consistently disposed to do whatever they can that will make a difference in Although friendships should always be real, and mutually edifying, there are some which are legitimately temporary, due to circumstances that change, geographical barriers that develop, and on account of the completion of joint tasks which made those friendships initially possible, but mostly for that limited duration. Nevertheless, even when certain friendships are momentary, their dissolution does not entail enmity; it simply indicates that its purposes shall remain with its participants. Furthermore, it can be renewed at any point and develop into new and better One of the greatest values of true friendship is in what a friend can do for another friend, without expecting equal or greater favors to be repaid. Genuine friendships look more to what can be provided than to what may be personally advantageous. Yet, many friendships established on solid ground I never forget hearing a public address in which the speaker alluded to a precious friend of his, of whom he stated: Just knowing that he is alive in the world is reason for true rejoicing. And so it should be. I am perpetually blessed by friendships I still hold in different parts of the world in spite of infrequent personal contacts. Nevertheless, they are Having said that, I still recommend that friendships, at any stage of their development, be always treated as a tender plant in need of nourishment and other elements which can make it thrive and grow. In so doing, let us ever remember that its not so much what we can derive from it but, far more, what we can impart to those friends, anywhere in Pitfalls Of Instant SuccessIn these days when gloom and doom seem to attract attention, when negative news receives so much coverage, our own focus is often directed toward the fear of failure. But what happens when we achieve success too much success? With the so-called viral nature of the Internet, in which an idea can achieve almost instantaneous, global saturation enhanced by the 24/7 access available to us many people have become rich or famous in a very short period of time. A couple of years ago, for instance, a man produced a video that captured worldwide attention, reportedly reaching 100 million people in a single week. How would you like to experience that kind of success? In this individuals case, he discovered unimagined success can be vastly overrated. His unrestrained attempt to capture and leverage this instant success led to extreme exhaustion and a public meltdown. Regrettably, this resulted in damaging the very cause he was promoting. We can think of many other examples of successful people that ultimately failed: Entertainers who became household names overnight, only to let success go to their heads and just as quickly become forgotten; business executives who tried to take ethical shortcuts to perpetuate success; star athletes whose careers were like shooting stars, visible one minute but disappearing the next. Many of us, with enough hard work and determination, will experience periods in life when success, exciting opportunities, and even wealth can tempt us to push beyond our limits. Fearful of having a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity slip away, never to return, we press beyond our mental and physical capacities. We could end up like the Internet entrepreneur, exhausted and publicly humiliated. Or we could cause irreparable harm to important relationships, not only where we work but also in our homes. If success grabs you unexpectedly, pace yourself. Restraint will result in a healthier and better long-term result. The Bible offers wisdom we should consider: Practice restraint. Caught up in the moment, when success seems like the snowball rolling downhill, picking up speed and size, we feel inclined to ride along. Momentum can become intoxicating. However, Proverbs 23:4 teaches, Do not wear yourself out to get rich; have the wisdom to show restraint. Prepare for the future. When we taste success, it becomes easy to assume it will last forever. In reality, however, todays hot trend becomes tomorrows afterthought. A better approach is to use success as a springboard for long-term prosperity. Seriously consider issues such as, how fast should we grow? Can we keep pace with the demand if it continues? Jesus said, Suppose one of you wants down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? (Luke 14:28). Prevent ego buildup. Success can is a dangerous trap, one we can avoid only when we anticipate it in advance. In Romans 12:3, the apostle Paul advised his readers, Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.

Artist Yaacov Heller, of Gallery 22, built an 8-foot menorah that is now the central part of the new Weiner Rosenberg Family Sculpture Garden, dedicated in the memory of Eleanor Weiner. The menorah is the center of the sculpture garden, which will be used to teach future students of the Bnai Torah Congregation the rich Jewish heritage. The sculpture is all bronze, however the menorah has a wood-look to it as to represent that all are from on branch and are all connected. The base of the menorah lies the original 12 tribes of Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Judah, Issacher, Zebulun, Benjamin, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Ephraimand, and Manesseh. The seven-branched candelabrum is symbolically guarded by two Lions of Judah on a granite pedestal and is located in a new meditation area. The whole idea for the project began in July 2013 when Paul Weiner came in to Gallery 22 and reminded Heller of the last time he was in one of his galleries. The last time Paul and his late wife Eleanor visited Heller was back in Jerusalem, Israel at 22 King David St, diagonally across the infamous King David Hotel. Weiner wanted to memorialize Eleanor with a gift to his congregation Bnai Torah. Paul wanted to give his congregation a gift; a large bronze menorah, recalls Heller. He chose several different menorahs which he then showed Rabbi David Steinhardt. They decided on the Lions of Judah Menorah. I then asked for the help of my friend and fellow Rotarian, architect Doug Mummaw who recommended the sight placement after one visionary look at the entrance to Bnai Torah and the project was born.

Lower Fees for Motorists in Sight: Tax Collector Urges AwarenessBy CRA News ServiceMotorists in Florida will get a break in the fees they pay to renew their car registration, next year. The Florida Senate recently unanimously approved a bill (SB 156) that would lower auto tag and registration fees by about $25 a year for many motorists. Anne M. Gannon, Constitutional Tax Collector, welcomes the rollback and cautions vehicle owners about a section of 756,000 motor vehicle owners in Florida: owners who renewed their tag for a two year period prior to the effective date of Sept. 1. Im alerting all motorists about this exclusion, she said. Anyone renewing for two years before Sept. 1, 2014 will not This legislation also prohibits any refunds for higher fees paid before the Sept. 1st effective date. The Florida Senate unanimously approved the measure that should lower the annual registration fees for most car and truck drivers by about $25. The charges legislators were grappling with a large budget gap caused by the downturn in the states economy. The tag fee increases were imposed along with a $1 a pack increase in cigarette taxes to get the state through a major budget shortfall. Its a way to get broad based tax and fee relief to the people, said Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart and the sponsor of the fee rollback. The government has a bad habit of adding on fees and rules and once they are on the books they never come off. The lower fees, however, wont kick in until this September, meaning that drivers who renew their cars now will have to rollback. Data collected by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles from last year show nearly 9 million motor vehicles had their registrations renewed from January to August while more than 4 million vehicles of the year. Drivers are required to renew their registration during the month of their birthday although drivers can also get a twoyear renewal. Gov. Rick Scott has made the auto fee rollback a top priority for the legislative session. State legislators have pledged to cut taxes and fees by roughly $500 million this year. They are considering other types of tax breaks, including sales tax holidays for backto-school supplies and hurricane supplies.Crosspointe Elementary Exceeds Expectations in Student AchievementBy Bito DavidThe East Coast Technical Assistance Center has recognized Crosspointe Elementary schools with an Exceeding Expectations Award School.

Eva Peron Lives at KravisWhen Caroline Bowman sang a teaser from the musical Evita April 8 for a season preview at Kravis Center, I thought I need to see this show again. Am I glad I did. This is a beautifully realized production of the Time RiceAndrew Lloyd Webber musical, running just through April 13 in West Palm Beach. Caroline Bowman plays the lead role of Eva Peron, wife of Argentine president Juan Peron. Eva, known more endearingly as Evita, became an almost mythical character in her short life, and her reputation has only grown since her death from cancer at age 33 on July 26, 1952. Evita began as a concept album in 1976 and was expanded to a stage musical in England in 1978 and year later on Broadway, where in won the Tony award for Best Musical of 1979. There have been numerous national tours and regional productions of Evita in the years since. It had been about ten years since I last saw the show, so the Kravis on Broadway tour gave me a chance to give it a fresh look. Carline Bowman is an all-American girl; a product of Penn State University. She has a strong, high-ranging soprano singing voice and she is a great dancer. Moreover she has alluring, ambitious Eva Peron, who used her seductive charms to work her way up Argentinas social ladder all the way to the top. The role was most famously undertaken I think Caroline Bowman is a much better all-around performer, and she has a most impressive musical partner in Josh Young as Che, a revolutionary character and social critic loosely based on Che Guevara who also serves as narrator. Youngs tenor voice is sublime. Playing the role of right-wing general Juan Peron is Sean MacLaughlin, whose enthrallment with his second wife Eva eventually became a liability for him with the military and upper classes. Evita begins solemnly on the day of Evas death with a Catholicsounding Requiem. The mood is sharply contrasted with Ches rendition of Oh, What a Circus. The song Bowman sang at the preview was the theme song Buenos Aires, which captures all and pasos dobles appeal of this show. The overall sound and balance between orchestra and singers is among the best I have ever heard at Kravis Center. Each singer is audible individually, which is a huge advantage. The staging is quite grand, especially for the most famous song, Dont Cry For me Argentina. Evita will no doubt visit our area again, but for now this is as good as it gets. Tickets start at $25.

Schwarz is quite a contrast with previous guest conductor James Judd, who has let his graying hair grow quite long, and is constantly moving about, coaxing the players, looking more like a rock star. In his conservative charcoal gray suit, white shirt and trim haircut, Schwarz looks more like a CEO than musical maestro. Make no mistake though, Schwarz knows his stuff, as he ably proved on Mozarts intricate, sevenmovement Serenade No. 9 in D major, K 320. As gorgeous as was the No. 9, the real highlight of the afternoon was Clarinet Concerto in A major, K 622. Soloist Jon Manasse doesnt just know this piece, which he played entirely from memory, he lives, breathes and feels deeply this late compositionMozarts only clarinet concerto, written for his friend Anton clarinetist of his time. The joy of classical music is that when it is really working, everyone feels the emotion. Manasse, who is on the Lynn University faculty and is coartistic director (with pianist Jon Nakamatsu) of the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival, was rewarded with one of the most enthusiastic and heartfelt standing ovations I have even seen at a classical music concert. Though the Symphonia audience skews older, Manasses performance was invigorating for even the most elderly patron. It was hard to miss some young and beautiful members of the audience. After intermission Symphonia President Steven L. Pomeranz revealed the young people were special invited guests: dancers from HARID Conservatory, a world-class dance school adjacent to Lynn University. It just so happened to be the birthday of Symphonia benefactor Martin B. Stein, who was duly serenaded by the orchestra and the entire audience. Bravo Mr. Stein, for all your good work. While this years season is over, season subscriptions for the forthcoming tenth anniversary season are now on sale. The four concert season features guest conductor David Kim, concertmaster of the Philadelphia Orchestra Dec. 21; Gerald Schwarz returning Jan. 11; Alexander Platt returning Feb. 22, and the passionate James Judd returning April 12. I just saw the New York Philharmonic last week, remarked my older friend, author and radio host Hal Spielman. These musicians are every bit as good.

www.bocaratontribune.com Edition 181B3Section B April 11, through April 17, 2014 Entertainment Skip Sheffield S P O T L I G H T Laughter and Tears in Steel MagnoliasTears underlie the laughter of Steel Magnolias, the Robert Harling comedy running through April 20 at the Wick Theatre, 7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton. Playwright Robert Harling based Steel Magnolias on the memory of his sister, who died in 1985 of complications of diabetes after a transplanted kidney was rejected by her body. No, it does not sound like a laugh riot, but Steel Magnolias is a comedy with heart. Harling loves and admires the women of Truvys Beauty Salon, recreated meticulously by Wick in-house set. The set is almost like a seventh member of the cast because it is so important to the lives of these lively northern Louisiana belles, to whom physical appearance is of utmost importance. And what is a more important occasion than a wedding to look ones best? Shelby (Alison McCarton) is eagerly anticipating her impending nuptials with Jackson Latcherie, who is never seen. We imagine must be quite a guy to land such a sweet and lovely girl. Truvy Jones (Patti Eyler) is the feisty owner of the beauty salon where the women regularly meet. Annelle (Linda Farmer) is the new girl in town. She is a bit shy and insecure, but she will blossom over the course of the three years of the story. Clairee (Sally Bondi) is a bridge-builder with the negative, curmudgeonly Ouiser (Robin Proett Olson). Shelbys mother MLynn (Aaron Bower) may be the steeliest of all these magnolias, as we learn by her actions in Act Two. Director Norb Joerder has cast with an eye for beauty and thespian skill. Because this play is so talky, it is essential the players are deadly accurate with their timing and delivery. Yes they are. Playwright Robert Harling earned a law degree from Tulane University, but became an actor and writer instead. We are the better for it.

Dont buy if you cant stay put. If you cant commit to remaining in one place for at least a few years, then owning is probably not for you, at least not yet. With the transaction costs of buying and selling a home, you may end up losing money if you sell any sooner even in a rising market. When prices are falling, its an even worse proposition. 2. Start by shoring up your credit. Since you most likely will need to get a mortgage to buy a house, you must make sure your credit history is as clean as possible. A few months before you start house hunting, get copies of your credit report. Make sure the facts discover. 3. Aim for a home you can really afford. The rule of thumb is that you can buy housing that runs about two-and-onehalf times your annual salary. But youll do better to use one of many calculators available online to get a better handle on how your income, debts, and expenses affect what you can afford. 4. If you cant put down the usual 20 percent, you may still qualify for a loan. There are a variety of public and private lenders who, if you qualify, offer low-interest mortgages that require a small down payment. 5. Buy in a district with good schools. In most areas, this advice applies even if you dont have school-age children. Reason: When it comes time to sell, youll learn that strong school districts are a top priority for many home buyers, thus helping to boost property values. 6. Get professional help. Even though the Internet gives buyers unprecedented access to home listings, most new buyers (and many more experienced ones) are better off using a professional agent. Look for an exclusive buyer agent, if possible, who will have your interests at heart and can help you with strategies during the bidding process. 7. Choose carefully between points and rate. When picking a mortgage, you usually have the option of paying additional points -a portion of the interest that you pay at closing -in exchange for a lower interest rate. If you stay in the years or more -its usually a better deal to take the points. The lower interest rate will save you more in the long run. 8. Before house hunting, get preapproved. Getting pre-approved will you save yourself the grief of looking at houses you cant afford and put you in a better position to make a serious offer when is based on a cursory review of your based on your actual income, debt and credit history. 9. Do your homework before bidding. Your opening bid should be based on the sales trend of similar homes in the neighborhood. So before making it, consider sales of similar homes in the last three months. If homes have recently sold at 5 percent less than the asking price, you should make a bid thats about eight to 10 percent lower than what the seller is asking. 10. Hire a home inspector. Sure, your lender will require a home appraisal anyway. But thats just the banks way of determining whether the house is worth the price youve agreed to pay. Separately, you should hire your own home inspector, preferably an engineer with experience in doing home surveys in the area where you are buying. His or her job will be to point out potential problems that could require costly repairs down the road.

Tamasy The Boca Raton Tribune Secular Work and Spiritual GiftsWhat are your greatest strengths in the workplace? In other words, how would you describe the unique mix of talents, abilities and experience you have to offer to your company or organization? Sometimes we refer to these as gifts, and might comment that someone is particularly gifted in certain areas, such as leadership, administration, team building, communicating, and many other functions necessary for success in the marketplace. In considering our own traits, we often view them in terms of our own success being able to earn a desired pay raise, meriting a promotion, receiving professional recognition, or achieving many other personal goals. But how often have you thought that perhaps your unique gifts are not primarily for A friend pointed this out during a recent conversation. Being a writer and editor, I enjoy my craft working with words to communicate ideas, concepts and principles I have found to be important and meaningful. I receive a measure of pleasure and satisfaction from the work I do. But ultimately, if what I have to convey through the written word is not shared with others, or found by them to be of value, in reality I am wasting my time. Years ago I heard a man recite a brief poem that made a lot of sense: A bell is not a bell until it is rung; a song is not a song until it is sung; now love was not given in your heart to stay for love is not love until you give it away. In a similar manner, we might say a personal gift we possess is not truly a of others. We might derive some results from the use of our gifts, but ultimately we have them to serve our companies, our clients and customers, shareholders and others. spiritual gifts, traits such as evangelism, faith, wisdom, healing, teaching and others. Each is given for the common good (1 Corinthians 12:7). The passage then proceeds to compare these separate gifts with the individual parts of the human body, noting they are not intended to function independently but rather in concert with other organs. If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has arranged the parts of the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.... As it is, there are many parts, but one body (1 Corinthians 12:17-19). We are sometimes tempted to take special pride in our distinctive talents and abilities. We must never forget, however, our success depends on the support of others with different capabilities. And we are urged to appreciate the contributions of others, just as we would hope they recognize our own. But God has combined the members of the body...so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other (1 Corinthians 12:24-25). Best Interests Of A ChildNot all mothers are perfect. Not all fathers are perfect and, unfortunately all children born are not genetically, psychologically, and physically perfect. When, on occasion the best interests of such a child falls within our professional penumbra we must do our best for that child in order to keep her and him safe from harm. include our judges, lawyers, physicians, psychiatrists, psychologists, and physical therapists, among others. When we have the responsibility to protect such a child from his father or mother who is far less than perfect, although loving, our heart strings are that we might have in adjudicating such a conundrum or representing the mother or father whether we represent the normal parent or the non-normal parent. Every judge and every lawyer knows arise. We know that every parent has a constitutional right and a moral right to spend time with their child and we also know that the best interests of the child may be served only when the child and parent are kept apart entirely or with the help of a supervisor for a parents access. Florida law long ago, through appellate decisions declares that alcoholism, drug abuse, gambling addiction or other similar patterns of behavior are illnesses. When a mother or father has such a disease we also know that there is no known absolute period of time when that disease will permanently abate. In my experience I have found that such addicts are the best of liars and the worst of drivers and just as bad at taking care of his or her most precious son or daughter some of the time. As infants, toddlers, and pre-teens these children demand the best care and close attention, as they will to adulthood, for different reason. Here I am talking about the ability for such a single parent to act as the guardian of his or her normal child. What if, however their child is one of the benighted? Perhaps an autistic child, or genetically challenged child who cannot appreciate the danger of an approaching car or truck. Or an autistic or a child who may when small controversies arise with a parent or screaming and worse. What if the addict father or mother happens to be on a bender when his or dearest and most precious child wanders near the road through a supposedly locked door and lock garden gate or into the back yard pool, or has a screaming and kicking episode because his or her parent had fallen asleep on a Sunday afternoon after drinking six beers and watching a football game. If such a parent cannot adequately take care of a normal child, what chance does the benighted child has under the care of his or her addicted parent. It is not judicial error to protect children against a parent when that parent has such history and worse by way of a complicated psychological history which place him or her in a risk category for reasons not connected to addiction. The best interests of the child should remain paramount under all circumstances.

Some players have very unique routines that they might go through while others might have a few simple things they do before they hit their shot. Either way they do it, what matters is the actual process that they go through. This process is what clears their mind and prepares them to make a great swing. The key point to remember about a pre-shot routine is that it stays consistent. The consistency of this routine will make your body and mind familiar with what is about to happen, therefore will make a better environment to hit the ball whether you are under pressure or not. So what does a good pre-shot routine consist of? It can be any number of things to waggle. Youll often seeing players lining up behind the ball and looking at their target. Jim Furyk will often pick out a spot in front of the ball to align his clubface before each shot. One or more practice swings are common to get the feel for your lie, slope, stance, and the type of club you are using. A grip check is often done to make sure your best grip is in place. Dufner has a very pronounced waggle that he takes before each shot he hits. Each pre-shot routine is unique and yours should be too. Just make sure its not too long did. The Pedro Project 3/28/14 cially began. Pedro starts of f by showing up a little behind schedule, but no problem. So.we head to the range to begin. Getting started I had Pedro make a few shots. W ell, as I mentioned in the last article, it needed some work. Shots where rolling on the ground, turf was dug up, and balls being topped were in the majority ngers. ngers have more feel, will produce more power and allow him to hinge the hands properly I will tell you, that he did extremely well in picking up the grip. Most people struggle with this. So I was impressed. xed, we worked on getting the weight positioned properly the ball position changed, and the hands inside the left thigh, and learning how to pivot through the ball. By making these changes, Pedro was able to chip the ball in the air and by the end of the lesson, he could hit 50 yards in the air Now these where not consistent, rst lesson, I would give him a B. Good job Pedro! Stay tuned as we continue this journey teaching Pedro to learn a golf swing and hit a golf ball.
30 -Edition 181 April 11, through April 17, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsSPORTS Why Its Time to Stop The Jokes About Miami Being A Bad Soccer MarketWhen artist renderings of David Beckhams proposed Miami MLS stadium were unveiled on Monday, the Internet responded with its typical negative and stereotypical comments about Miami as a sports town. Some of the few choice comments included: looks good except the stadium will be half full most of the time 1/4 full lol The jokes and snide comments about attendances in South Florida are stereotypes that were born more than a decade ago, but soccer fans wont open their eyes to the trends from the past Its time to destroy the myth that South Florida has poor attendances for soccer games. Miami has been getting a lot of heat lately thanks to Englishman David Beckham and his intentions of bringing a Major League Soccer franchise to the Magic City. Beckham has said he believes Miami is a strong sports market, and believes MLS in Miami has everything to be a complete success. People who are not from Miami tend to disagree with everything Beckham, and most of MLS Miami supporters have been saying that for the past couple of years. Naysayers will point at the low attendance at nearly every other major sport the city of Miami has as reasons to not have an MLS franchise in the city. However, comparing something like hockey or baseball to soccer is like comparing apples and oranges. They are not the same thing. Poor attendances at Miami Marlins or Florida Panthers games have no relevance to attendances at soccer games. Lets take a closer look at the facts. 1. Last summer, the International Champions Cup was played in Miami over two days. In those two days, the average attendance was 52,893. The Stadium had an attendance of 67,273, which was greater than any of the games played in New York/New Jersey, Los Angeles, San Francisco and other major metropolitan cities in the United States. 2. When the World Football Challenge came to Miami in 2011 with a matchup between Barcelona and Chivas de Guadalajara, 70,080 fans packed Sun Life Stadium to watch the match. 3. In 2012 when AC Milan played Chelsea, 57,748 fans attended the game, which was the largest attendance of the World Football Challenge. The record crowd beat attendances in Seattle, Toronto, New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia and other North American cities. 4. Soccer has shown time and time again that it is one of the biggest sports in South Florida. Just last year, Brazil played Honduras at Sun Life Stadium to a record crowd of 71,124 fans, which was the largest crowd Brazil had in its recent World Tour and it set a record for the most-attended soccer game in Florida history. 5. In plenty of other games in South Florida, soccer has had impressive attendances including the 51,615 who turned out for the friendly between Colombia and Mexico in 2012, and the 48,327 attendance for the 2012 World Soccer Masters game. Naysayers will says that Fans will only show up to when the teams are doing well, or only where there are big games going on. While I wont completely disagree with that argument, I want to point out that Miami is no different to most parts of the country when it comes to sports. Have you taken a look at the Staples Center lately when the mighty Los Angeles Lakers have been playing? Its practically empty. Even when they the Miami Heat the laughing stock of the league at 1567 during the 2007-2008 NBA Season, the Miami Heat averaged 19,463 fans at their home games, which was still good enough to be in the Top 10 in the NBA, beating out teams like the Lakers, Spurs, and Celtics. This season, the back-toback NBA Champions are averaging 19,765 fans, only 302 more fans on average than when they were one of the worst teams in the league. Furthermore, in a recent poll Sports Business Journal, Miami has the highest percentage of fans in the United States claiming to be very or somewhat interested in MLS among markets Orlando ranks 19th in the same poll interested in MLS. Miami has all the right ingredients to make soccer work. It has the location, it has the people, it has the fans, and now it has the owner in place that wants to see the team succeed. There are plenty of questions left unanswered as of right now when it comes to Beckhams MLS Miami franchise, but to say the team will fail because Miami sports fans wont show up is just wrong. Its time to stop labeling Miami and South Florida as a poor soccer market. Instead, its time to realize that Miami is an integral part of soccer in the United States. Remember, its 2014, not 2001. We want MLS. We will support MLS.
