This year, it runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13, and he said he hopes for even more. The Back to School Jam, he said, ensures that all children are af forded an opportunity to have backpacks, school supplies, health exams to include physicals, immuni zations and eye exams, and vital information provided by various organizations within the community. We worry about what a child will become tomor row, yet we forget that he is someone today, said Barton. Many children begin the first day of school without the basic necessities to have a suc cessful academic year due to the familys inability to provide the resources that are required by many school districts. In es sence they are behind be fore school begins. Every child who at tends Saturdays event will receive a grade ap propriate backpack filled with the required school supplies.

COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL When Doug Mum maw was a senior at Boca Raton High School, he re ceived one of four $1,000 scholarships awarded in 1983 by the Rotary Club of Boca Raton. That scholarship en abled him to go to college to receive an education and become an architect. Now Mummaw is an ar chitect in Boca Raton. After becoming es tablished in his profes sion, Mummaw was ap proached by a friend to join the Rotary Club of Boca Raton. That was six years ago and now he is the incoming president of the club, an organiza tion with just under 100 members. His term offi cially began on July 1 and will last one year. "The vision I have is to discover and rediscover opportunities for service. There are opportunities all around us to serve our neighbors. We need to think about things that have been overlooked." Mummaw said it is im portant for Rotary Club members to look for op portunities to help other people in life. "I am recep tive to opportunities to helping others. This may mean giving someone five dollars to get some food or helping someone out. I want to help make a positive change in the lives of other people," he said. "Our own futures are built as a result of this service." The primary goal of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton is "Changing Lives and Building Futures. Doug Mummaw new president of Rotary Club of Boca Raton "This mission is the mo tivating force behind all our service endeavors," saidMummaw.

Box 970593 Boca Raton, FL 33497 used as letters to the editor. Letter Guidelines By Dale King Letters to the Editor I hate to admit it, but this one caught me to tally by surprise. I was thumbing through the movie ads this past weekend when I noted several mentions of Planet of the Apes. Had I just gone through a time warp? Didnt I see this movie back in 1968 the one that allowed Charlton Heston to run around in a loincloth, his hairy, sweaty body visible to all? It also cloaked fa mous stars like Roddy McDowell, Kim Hunter and Maurice Evans in suits of simian ilk No, I have since dis covered. This one is actually a 2011 edition, ironically a prequel to the first Planet in carnation from the late 1960s. It did pretty well at the box office, outdis tancing every other film on the silver screen. (Second biggest sell er was The Smurfs, which gives you some idea of the likes and dislikes of your average movie goer. The original Plan et spawned a series of sequels as well as a TV show from 1974 which, as I recall, didnt last long. I figured the Planet of the Apes franchise had worn out its welcome in a hurry. So I checked back on the computer, and, yes, friends, there were a bunch of Planet of the Apes films Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Escape from Con quest of and Battle for. Heres another one that got by me. It seems that in 2001, a newer version of Planet of the Apes was filmed, with Mark Wahlberg in the lead role. I havent seen Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and I know my wife wouldnt like it she is not a science fic tion buff. So I may have to con tent myself with past Planet films. But I have to say one thing about the 1968 version. That film, along with Stan ley Kubricks set new standards for the quality of science fiction technology. And I remember the ending of the original Planet of the Apes. It is not violent, but it is very, very telling and frightening. Whats happening in the world right now is not a far cry from what is referenced in the films conclusion. Im told that the new Planet film has a lot of violence and explo sions. The 1968 Planet offered its own form of violence, of apes beating on humans the way we beat on circus animals or some of our own pets. (Certainly that was part of the films undercur rent, not to mention the obvious racial tones.) In a way, I had for gotten all about Planet of the Apes. And so, apparently, had Holly wood. The movie city has long suffered from sequel-itis, one that has concentrated on com ic books (Spiderman, Transformers, X-men, Superman, Batman); on heroic archaeologists (Indiana Jones) and sci ence fiction (Star Trek, Star Wars). Rise of the Planet of the Apes has got a long, hard road ahead if it is to match the original entry in terms of becoming a genuine pop culture phe nomenon. Success greet ed Planet of the Apes and so a sequel was com missioned. The sequel was successful enough to carry the series forward to the point in Earths past where it is revealed just exactly how the apes were able to carry out their conquest of civiliza tion. I was disappointed to learn that in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the ape makeup is computergenerated. All the other films used real makeup and costumes. But Im sure Rise of the Planet of the Apes will generate its own following and kick-start the old franchise. Alert Hasbro and Mattel to crank up the toy-making machines.

Let them know you saw their Ads in the Boca Tribune. EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. By Douglas Heizer Silver Linings for Your Dark Cloud During the 1950s I was a graduate student in Philadelphia, Penn sylvania. It was a time of great learning, and unforgettable growth experiences. Since then I have developed the habit of jotting down good thoughts I encounter in my readings, or hear in lectures and other talks, not to mention the ideas which percolate in my own mind, which I cap ture in writing to expand later. One significant re minder that I copied then, and still have, is the wise affirmation that no branch escapes the prun ing knife; no jewel the wheel; no child the rod; and no human vessel the thorn. It is the final ele ment that motivates me in the affirmations that follow. Indeed, human suffer ing has affected everyone of the countless genera tions since creation. Not only is the human race affected, but the cosmic consequences of evil in the world are most real and present in the entire universe. Yet, amidst all suffer ing, one may still find a measure of peace and reassurance in spite of troubles, while theyre occurring. Through a right perspective and un ceasing personal hope, hardships can be endured with courage by those engaged in the daily, hu man trajectory through life! Sometimes people are too distracted by the good things of life that they are forced to face difficult moments as a reality check, and a means of learning need ed, essential lessons. Life teaches all humans both in joy and in sorrow. All lessons, if ad equately learned, are tools for better living, as years unfold. Often, the greatest and most po tent teachings are those learned in pain, or in dark valleys. Yet, any lesson shall be fully valid only if and when applied to daily experience, regardless of circumstances! Rabbi David J. Wolpe offered good perspec tive on this issue when he pondered: We suffer the peculiar blindness of those who see only the visible. Everyone needs to be more atten tive to lifes signposts, each pointing to the way one needs to follow to overcome the inevitable blows which life continu ously hurls indiscrimi nately at every member of the human race! Sports have also been a big part of the Boca Ra ton Tribunes coverage. The paper is already getting ready to kick off new and expanded cov erage, particularly as the college and high school football seasons begin. You can find expand ed football news in to days paper, and more is planned next week, with emphasis on all the local high school teams as well as Florida Atlantic Uni versity. Actually, the biggest sports event in the Boca Raton area this coming season isnt a game its the opening of the new FAU on-campus stadium. Since the FAU Fight ing Owls football team started playing in1999, they have not had a stadi um of their own. Instead, they had to play down in Miami or Fort Lauder dale. Nothing unites a uni versity community like a winning football team, and soon the two-time bowl champions will have a stadium to call their own. It will be a versa tile facility that will host a wide variety of events each year, from games to commencement ceremo nies to Homecoming con certs. The grand open ing is scheduled for Oct. 15, when the Owls host Western Kentucky. But the high schools Tribune is preparing to kick o intense sports coverage will also be well worth watching and the Tri bune next week will pub lish schedules, games to keep your eye on, players to watch and other details about the upcoming sea son. The Tribune will not focus only on football. Weve struck a deal with the MagicJacks, the wom ens professional soc cer team, to cover their games (home contests are played at the FAU soccer field). And we will con tinue to cover the Strikers mens soccer team, which plays in Fort Lauderdale. We will actually be of fering double coverage with stories in the paper and game accounts on line similar to last year, but much more extensive. So, remember, if youre looking to follow local sports, look to the Boca Raton Tribune. Bartons in a Jam Wayne Barton is in a jam. But its a good one. The founder and CEO of the Wayne Barton Study Center here in Boca will be holding his annual Back to School Jam Saturday, Aug. 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wayne told us he ex pects at least as many young people and families as last year about 8,000. Barton is intent on properly equipping all students in need. The kids can go from table to table requesting items they need, and then they can pick it all up when they get to the end of the row. Youngsters who need haircuts, eye exams and dental screenings canalso be taken care of. In the end, kids will leave with a backpack full of essential supplies toget them through the school year that begins Aug. 22. This is a great annual event, and we commend Wayne for doing it. Also helping out this year will be the West Boca Rotary Club, the Boca West Foundation and the Boca Raton Lions Club. Sales tax holiday If you do plan to do some back to school shop ping, this weekend is a very good time to do it. The states three day sales tax waiver will be in effect. The so-called Sales Tax Holiday begins at 12:01 a.m., Friday, August 12, ands end at midnight Sunday, August 14. During this period, no sales tax will be collected on sales of clothing, foot wear, and certain acces sories selling for $75 or less, or on certain school supplies selling for $15 or less.

The Palm Beach County Ethics Initiative was rec ognized as an effective and innovative program pro moting transparency in government. As many of you know, a grand jury report was is sued in 2009. As chair of the County Commission, I immediately began a fo cused and comprehensive effort to develop an ethics initiative aimed at restoring public trust.

We established an in dependent Commission on Ethics, an independent Of fice of Inspector General and a new county Code of Ethics. In November 2010, 72 percent of the voters ap proved a referendum ex tending oversight to the employees and elected of ficials of each of the coun tys 38 municipalities.

Having received tenta tive approval of the Palm Beach County School Districts 2011-2012 budget, officials are now preparing for final bud get approval on Septem ber 14, and then will im mediately begin working to balance the 2012-2013 budget. Board members voted 5-1 July 27 to approve the districts $2.3 billion bud get. The new spending package is some $234 mil lion or approximately 10 percent smaller than the 2010-2011 budget due to reduced state revenues and the end of federal stimulus dollars. County residents would pay 2.6 cents more per $1,000 of taxable property value to fund the schools next year, $8.18 School Board approves tentative budget; nal OK due Sept. 14 per $1,000, as required by the states required lo cal effort. The board can lower the tax rate before its final approval Sept. 14 but it cannot increase it. To balance the budget, the district has been sav ing money and reducing expenses through hiring freezes, eliminating all non-essential spending, using Edu Jobs stimu lus funding and using one time funding such as proceeds from a prop erty sale. Seven hundred twenty-seven positions, some vacant, some filled, were eliminated. Teachers receive a raise$500 each and no employees would be fur loughed next year if the budget receives final ap proval. Schools would add approximately 200 el ementary school teaching positions to meet state mandated class-size lim its. Officials say next years budget will be equally dif ficult to balance because of the continuing soft economy that is result ing in lower property tax and sales tax revenue that fund education and the ab sence of one time funding sources. They foreshadow additional budget cuts next year.

MUNICIPAL East/West Boca Raton, FL BOCA RATON A stolen Rolex watch led Boca Raton Police detec tives from Boca Raton to Miami, to eBay, and finally to Peru. Police reports say the case started back in March when the theft victim re ported that he believed his roommate stole two of his Rolex watches valued at $5,000. The roommate, Arthur Braun, 24, was no longer living with the vic tim and his whereabouts were unknown. A search was conducted at pawn shops in Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties, based upon the serial number provided by the victim and by the name of the suspect, police said. Though no transactions were found, investigators determined the watch had been sold to a man who knew Braun through rehab. The man, who told po lice he thought the watch was a replica, bought it for $200 and had it serviced. When he found out it was real, he decided to sell it on Ebay and received $3,161 for it from Michel Ipenza. The watch was shipped to a Miami address. When investigators went to the address, they learned that Ipenza lived in Peru and the Miami shipping ad dress belonged to a friend. Further investigation, police said, revealed that the friend had taken the watch to Ipenza when she visited him on a recent trip to Peru. When Ipen za learned the watch was stolen, he contacted Boca Raton investigators and agreed to send it back. Arrest warrants were filed for Arthur Braun on August 3 charging him with second degree felony, dealing in stolen property.

Business-to-Business selling, is just what the name says; it is business that occurs between two businesses. In the real world Business-to-Busi ness selling (or B2B for short) is far different than Business-to-Consumer selling or B2C. In B2C the transactions are rela tively quick compared to the long-term personal relationships that are in volved in B2B selling. B2B introduces ad ditional complexity into the scene because you are selling, not to a con sumer, but to a corpo rate client. This type of customer is unique the individual whos buying the product/service will not personally be using it. And while the client has personal taste that guides them along the purchasing process, ul timately they represent the needs of an entire business. The B2B client acts not only upon the needs and likes of their own, but also upon the re quests and directions of the executives, market ing, and sales staff of her/his company. So when the client considers making a pur B2B or not 2B chase, they of course want to like it personally. However, they com mit to buy the product/ service primarily to sat isfy the needs and wants of their target customer and depend heavily on what management and the marketing staff will feel is marketable. The clients main consider ation is that the product/ service will be a benefit for the business. The B2B salesperson that brings in the busi ness is highly regarded by management. Such a successful B2B seller is not considered overhead but rather, for management, that salesperson is a walking cash register. Bringing in the business is the key to the future of the busi ness and therefore those salespeople who can get new accounts and ex pand the business are often assigned to bigger accounts or given larger territories and many times promoted to mana gerial positions. In terms of job secu rity, the successful B2B salesperson develops strong business relation ships with key clients, and as a result gains a high degree of indis pensability. Management doesnt want to lose key custom ers. However, no matter how many clients you have, being reliable and honest are two require ments to keeping ones job. Becoming a success ful B2B salesperson can lead to management po sitions. In B2B selling, the seller has fewer clients and fewer transactions; therefore it opens the door for the seller to spend longer periods of time with the client, thus making it not only feasi ble but also necessary to establish a long-term re lationship with them. We find that in many cases both client and seller are personally involved in the building of the busi ness relationship. More time is spent in solving problems and reaching objective and goals. B2B selling is the platform for something that requires old-fashioned personal selling. By old-fashioned personal selling which applies in retail sales in many cases as well we actually mean the timetested fundamentals of personal selling, which never change: at all times attitude relationship with the client (but not the slapon-the back kind!) people, or what we call being a people person Relating to a diversi fied audience ship with the buyer each transaction has to be to the mutual ben efit of the both seller and client in developing profits for the clients com pany about your service/ product as well as the clients business. We have an increas ingly global market and B2B selling has an im portant role in it. Excerpts from the book, The Real World Guide to Fashion Selling & Management, Gerald J. Sherman & Sar S.

B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL The Help is a wonder ful movie based on Kath ryn Stocketts wonderful 2009 novel, which in turn was inspired by Stocketts real-life childhood in Mis sissippi. The film is direct ed by Tate Taylor, a child hood friend of Stocketts, in his directorial debut. For white people of a certain affluence, everyone had help, or domestic maids, almost all of them African-American. In Mis sissippi in the early 1960s this meant there were cer tain rules; humiliating as pects of segregation, such as making the help use an outhouse instead of a regu lar bathroom and making them eat in the kitchen in stead of the dining room. Maid uniforms were man datory. Kathryn Stockett was born in 1969 and raised in Jackson MS, which is the model for the book and movies town. In in terviews she has freely ad mitted she was inspired to write the book in tribute to the maids who raised her and to assuage her guilt about treating them as sec ond-class citizens. Indeed one of the main charac ters so closely resembles a real-life maid she has sued Stockett for damages. The main character of Eugenia Skeeter Phelan (Emma Stone) is clearly the alter ego of the author. Like Stockett she gradu ated from college with an English degree and as pired to a writing career Growing Up in the South with The Help rather than early marriage and motherhood. This makes Skeeter a bit of a rebel in her con servative home town, and making her even more of a maverick is the fact that she understands and sym pathizes with The Help. Skeeters family maid, Abileen Clark (Viola Da vis), is a third-generation maid and a classic example of a woman who knows her place. In sharp contrast with Abileen is Mindy Jackson (Octavia Spencer), a maid who is not afraid to speak her mind and quick to an ger at injustice. As a result she has been fired a num ber of times for what was then called being an up pity Negro. The Southern Belle ste reotype is fulfilled by Hilly Holbrook (Bryce Dallas Howard), the socially-con scious, haughty queen bee of local society. At the other end of the social spectrum is Ce lia Foote (Jessica Chas tain), the pretty but brassy bleached blond who has snagged the towns most handsome and eligible bachelor, Johnny Foote (Mike Vogel). Stocketts characters may be stock types, but they are remarkably trueto-life, and played with conviction by the topnotch cast. Emma Stone is an amazing combination of beauty and brains as an ac tress, and when her char acter decides to interview the towns maids to get their stories in their own words, we really believe it. Octavia Spencer is a lit tle-known young actress, but she breathes fire as Mindy. Oscar-nominated Viola Davis by contrast is an old hand at playing women of quiet power and determination. The Help is more a womans film than a mans, but I couldnt help but think back to the women who served as our maids when my mother strug gled with raising five kids with a side career as fash ion model. We are not in the Deep South and seg regation is not rigidly en forced, but this is a lovely tribute to the women who endured.

B BOCA LIFE & ARTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By Kay Renz Helping Our Soldiers Families Stay Fit The tragic loss of our wonderful Navy SEALS in last week's helicop ter crash really brought to light, once again, just how many families are coping with the constant stress and worry of hav ing a loved one serve our country. We all know what stress can do to our health. So I was very pleased to see that Michael's Body Scenes is offering compli mentary memberships to immediate family members of deployed Reservists and National Guard. Michael and Fito Pa pamichael, owners of Mi chael's Body Scenes, have long served our communi ty by supporting an innu merable array of charities and causes. Their dedica tion during these past 23 years has garnered them many accolades, but their desire to help others comes from their genuine grati tude for all that they have achieved. When they heard about the initiative for the sol diers' families they imme diately became involved. Michael's is now a proud member of the IHRSA Joining Forces Network, which supports First Lady Michelle Obamas Joining Forces and Lets Move! initiatives. The IHRSA Joining Forces Network, an af filiation of health clubs offering free memberships to the immediate fam ily members of actively deployed Reservists and National Guard members throughout the country, successfully merges the ac tive lifestyle goals of Lets Move! with the desire to provide support and ser vices to military families through Joining Forces. The IHRSA Joining Forc es Network was intro duced on May 9th by Mrs. Obama at a health and wellness event for military families on the south lawn of the White House. "Michael's Body Scenes is honored to be a par ticipating member of The IHRSA Joining Forces Network and is excited to begin supporting the needs of these military families says Mary Ann MorganFried, marketing director of Michaels Body Scenes. Our staff is so proud to be able to give back to the families of these coura geous Americans in such a unique and beneficial way." Immediate family mem bers of currently deployed Reservists and National Guard from the Boca Ra ton community are invited to begin their complimen tary 6-month membership. A membership at Michael's Body Scenes includes full use of the facility, group exercise classes, childcare, and orientations. Under the guidance of our trained professionals, these families will receive great healthy lifestyle ad vice and training in a sup portive environment. Our entire staff is energized and excited to extend our services to these families. We can only imagine how stressful it must be to have a loved one so far from home, so we are honored to help with their health, happiness and stress-relief in the ways we know best. said Morgan-Fried. Mary Ann MorganFried also noted that Mi chaels Body Scenes is par ticularly excited about the opportunity that these free memberships will provide for the teen-aged children of deployed Reservists and National Guard members, who will now have access to a supportive health club environment where they can learn about and imple ment a physically active lifestyle.

Columnists The Boca Raton Tribune By Mike Gora You probably do not know that in about 85 per cent of all divorces litigat ed in Florida, at least one party is not represented by an attorney. Many of these cases are between two people who have had no children together, have been married a short time, and have little income and no marital assets. On the other hand, many of the cases in which no attorneys are involved do involve children. In those cases, the judges know that they must help the couple come up with a written parenting plan during the case. This is the document in which the couple agrees, or the judge orders, the amount of overnights with the child that each parent will have, and divide holidays, school breaks and summer vaca tions. When that plan is com pleted and decisions are made about child support and property issues, a final judgment will be entered by the court setting out all of the courts findings and decisions, or adopt an agreement that the couple has come up with without the help of counsel. At that time, it is doubt ful that the couple knows that neither of them can move to another state or far from the other in Flor ida with their children, without filing a petition with the court to allow the move and follow that pe tition to a final judgment allowing the move. The petition can be defeated in court if the judge finds that moving is not in the best interests of the child or children. It is likely that neither the mother nor the father, who has not been repre sented by counsel, and does not have a law degree, knows that they cannot move without the courts permission. The requirement to ap ply to a judge for permis sion to move back to ones home town, to be closer to a parent or brother or sister, friends or for a job is not waived by the other parent through a failure to pay child support or even a failure to take advantage of one parents visitation or access rights to their child or children for many years. There is a statute which allows a custodial parent to end the other parents rights in a case where the missing parent abandons the child but that case stat ute takes a high level of proof and proof that there is no remedy other then ending parental rights available. The typical person who gets divorced without counsel has never heard of the availability of that statute either. There is no statute or Florida Rule of Judicial Administration which re quires the judge or the clerk of the court to no tify everyone who gets di vorced about the require ments which must proceed moving away with your children without getting the courts permission. To make matters worse there is a significant preju dice against the party who makes such an unauthor ized move when the other parent files a claim to have the other parent return to Florida or South Florida with the child or children. Even though the par ent who left had no idea of his or her obligation to get court permission be fore they moved to be with family, or a new husband or wife, or job, it is held against them, which clear ly seems a bit unfair. Per haps the court clerk should be required to point this rule out to every person who files a divorce case or gets served with a divorce case with notice of this law when the case begins and when the case ends.

As is true with the other sciences, Scriptures make numerous statements about the heavens and when compared to many modern scientific discoveries, have proven to be amazingly ac curate. 1. Size of the universe Eighty years ago, we thought the entire universe consisted of what we now know as the Milky Way gal axy. In reality, our galaxy is just one of hundreds of billions of others. Space is extremely vast. Each gal axy is home to around 200 billion stars. This is more stars than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of planet Earth. Our Milky Way galaxy has a diameter of 100,000 light years. If you could take a flashlight and beam it across the gal axy, it would take the light 100,000 years to reach the other side. (http:channel. nationalgeographic.com/ series/known-universe/all/ sizematters-facts) The Bible indicates in several places that the uni verse has been stretched out or expanded. Isaiah 40:22 teaches that God stretches out the heavens like a curtain and spreads them out like a tent. This would suggest that the uni verse has actually increased in size since its creation. God is stretching it out, causing it to expand. Clearly this verse was not consistent with the thinking of the time. The By Pr. Sandy Huntsman The Wonders of the Universe universe certainly doesnt look as if it is expanding. After all, if you look at the night sky tonight, it will appear about the same size as it did the previous night, and the night before that. In fact, secular scien tists once believed that the universe was eternal and unchanging. The idea of an expanding universe would have been considered non sense to most scientists of the past. Most astronomers today believe that the universe is indeed expanding. In the 1920s, astrono mers discovered that virtu ally all clusters of galaxies appear to be moving away from all other clusters in dicating an ever expanding universe. Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are? (Job 22.12) If heaven above can be measured, and the founda tions of the earth searched out beneath... (Jeremiah 31.37) It is fascinating that the Bible recorded the idea of an expanding universe thousands of years before secular science came to ac cept the idea. 2. Number of stars Man has always tried to number the stars. In the past, scientist limited to what they could see with the naked eye, numbered them in the thousands. With the advent of the telescope that number was modified to the millions. According to an article by Seth Borenstein in the Huffington Post, the uni verse may glitter with far more stars than even Carl Sagan imagined when he rhapsodized about billions upon billions. A new study suggests there are a mindblowing 300 sextillion of them, or three times as many as scientists previ ously calculated. That is a 3 followed by 23 zeros. Or 3 trillion times 100 billion. Speaking at the General Assembly of the Interna tional Astronomical Union meeting in Sydney, Dr Si mon Driver said the ac tual number of stars could be infinite.(articles.cnn. com/2003-07-22) Throughout scripture the inability to number the stars is directly stated or im plied: As the host of heaven cannot be numbered... (Jer emiah 33.22) As the stars of the heav en... Gen. 22.17 1. Variety of stars There is one glory of the sun, another glory of the moon, and another glo ry of the stars; for one star differs from another star in glory. (1 Corinthians 15.41) While this verse pri marily speaks to the lumi nosity of the various stars, clearly diversity is implied. It has not been until the recent pass-by of various satellites probes that we have been able to peer into the atmosphere and observe the diversity of the various planets and stars.

If he is so smart wouldn't he say "Sam doesn't know any thing about hitting a golf ball?" This guy can't be very bright and he is cer tainly no gentleman. What about Sam? Does he know anything about hitting a golf ball? If this guy says he doesn't and he is right..... shouldn't we assume that he is propably not very good at it? Makes perfect sense to me!

Stock market mil lionaires are experts on the stock market. Chess masters have an awe some inventory of chess moves. Experts in gener al know a ton about their field. So if one doesn't know a damn thing about what he is doing, he can't do it very well. Should we agree then that the more we know about a subject the bet ter we will do? The kid in class who looks like Bill Gates, and studies a lot gets A's this applies to school, and investments, and generally every thing? Everything? Sure everything! Let's apply this bril liant radical informa tion to golf. The more we know about "IT" the better we should do. After all, nearly every waking moment is spent thinking. How should I do my job. How do I get to work. How do I pay my bills. What is 3+3..... heady stuff like that.... If "Sam don't know a damn thing about hitting a golf ball" . . that's got to be his problem. Some knowit-all said he doesn't. He has to be a lousy golfer. No infor mation = failure. Did you ever take a test where you didn't know anything about the subject mat ter?

Byars II is currently a sleeper on the recruiting trail at the running back posi tion. He's a well-rounded back with good size and body structure. Has good speed, not elite but can quickly burst into the sec ond level of the defense for a big gainer.

SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL SPORTS East/West Boca Raton, FL By: Pedro Heizer The magicJack host ed the Western New York Flash on Wednes day night in one of the most highly anticipated matchups of the WPS season. The stars were certainly out with play ers like Abby Wombach, Christie Rampone, Hope Solo, Alex Morgan, and five-time FIFA Player of the Year, Marta, all at hand playing the best that womens soccer could of fer, and they didnt disap point. A total of 17 players from both teams partici pated in the World Cup this summer in Germany (the magicJack had nine and the Flash had eight), this was definitely the marquee matchup every one was waiting for. It was definitely one of the best games I have ever played in [Womens Professional Soccer], said Flash forward Alex Morgan. It doesnt get any better than this. Before the ball even hit the field, the game was al ready sold out, over 4,011 fans flocked the FAU Soc cer Stadium in Boca Ra ton to watch their heroes play. The 4,011 fans was a new attendance record for a Womens Profes sional Soccer match in Palm Beach County. It was a great op portunity for womens soccer, to have all these fan out here not only sup porting the magicjack but also supporting us, its a very humbling experience MagicJack fall to Marta and the New York Flash Despite Strong Support from the Crowd said Marta after the game. Before the World Cup, the magicJack had trouble getting 1,000 people to come watch their games, but ever since World Cup Fever it has been a different story. Its defi nitely been like night and day when it comes to how many people were here before [the World Cup] and now, explained US WNT hero and magic Jack goalkeeper Hope Solo. You will have all your bandwagon fans, but if from all those band wagon fans we get five or maybe even 10 real fans, we will be in good shape. The game itself was a pretty good one, the Flash scored in the 64th courtesy of Marta. The Brazilian strikers first goal came off a counter attack with her blasting through the magicJack defense. In the first half we didnt play our style of soccer, said the fivetime FIFA World Player of the Year but then in the second half, some thing clicked and we started playing the game we are all accustomed to playing. Despite having 16 shots on goal, the magic Jack were able to only score once on a goal by Sophie Schmidt from a beautiful assist from Christie Rampone. The second goal also came courtesy of Marta, We have a set play for short corners where I usually try to hit the ball off a player for it to go in, but this time that didnt happen and I was fortu nate enough to get the ball back on my foot and I scored Marta explained. The magicJack play the Philadelphia Inde pendence on Sunday at 4pm at the FAU Soccer Field, and the magicJack will host their first ever playoff game on Wednes day as they will host the number four seed in the WPS Playoffs.

Fort Lauderdale held the best team in the league in check during the entire 1st half, in fact, the last time that the Carolina Rail Hawks trailed at the half was on April 9th. The Strikers were not only playing against the RailHawks in this game, but also against the referees who kept his whistle quite when RailHawks players would foul but would blow them as soon as a Striker would do something to them. The Strikers had a to tal of six yellow cards compared to the mere one Carolina received, I think those were bad decisions by the guy in green. I think he [the referee] was incon sistent said Coach Shore about the referee situation. Forward Abe Thomp son was shown the red card in the 66th minute for a foul that did not look like noth ing but a routine push, The RailHawks could foul us all they wanted and as soon as we touched them the ref would give us a yellow card added Coach Shore The RailHawks tied the game at one in the 72nd minute with a goal by John Krause on a rebound after a Matt Glaeser save. Then, in stoppage time the smallest player on the field came up big yet again, Martin Nunez (5) scored the game-winning goal af ter coming in the game in the last 10 minutes. Mar tin is frustrated because he's not starting," coach Shore said. "For him to come in the final 10 minutes and make a difference is huge." I came with a lot of en ergy off the bench, had 10 minutes to play and made the most of my time and was blessed to be able to score the game winning goal said Nunez of his goal. With the win, the Strik ers are now one point be hind 5th place FC Edmon ton and four points behind third place Minnesota.
