The idea that they would get to within days of the hearing, after they have gone through weeks of depositions, use taxpayers money, then, all of sudden drop it, is absurd, said Jerry Phillips, Florida director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility Ive really not seen it done before, he said. The city and the Health Department settled on March 22 of this year. The city was required to pay only $2,500 in court costs and admitted to no wrong doing, Boca Couple Gives $6.5 Million for First Genenration College StudentsDr. Steven and Becky Scott have committed $6.5 million to further the education of first generation college students through Wake Forests Magnolia Scholars program.

4 -Edition 144 May 3, through May 9, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comNathan Hatch announced the gift on campus April 3. An earlier gift from the Scotts was instrumental in the establishment of the Magnolia Scholars program in 2009. The program, created to provide first generation students financial and academic support to attend Wake Forest, has helped more than 120 students. The first class of Magnolia Scholars will graduate in May. Wake Forest has long been a place of opportunity, as many of the students who attended the Old Campus were the first in their families to attend college, said Dr. Scott. Today Becky and I are proud to honor that tradition and continue our support of first generation college students through the Magnolia Scholars program. Inspired by his own experience as a first generation college student, Dr. Scott has shown particular interest in opening doors of opportunity to young people with considerable potential and few resources, President Hatch said. Through their prior commitments and now because of their transformative leadership gift, the Scott family has made it possible for even more firstgeneration students to experience Wake Forest. Those students who come to Wake Forest will benefit from financial aid, mentoring opportunities and assistance in their college transition. Aaron Colston, a junior English major and first generation student from Roanoke, Va., expressed his appreciation for the Scotts generosity and described the difference the Magnolia Scholarship has made for him. For me, personally, the Magnolia scholarship allowed me to come to Wake Forest, Colston said. Thank you to the Scotts on my behalf but also on behalf of my family. In my family, the bar has been raised and college is an option. It has opened my familys eyes to a whole different concept of what opportunity looks like. Students from North Carolina to the U.S. Virgin Islands with various ethnic and religious backgrounds have become Magnolia Scholars. The Magnolia Scholars program focuses on early involvement with students to ensure they have the knowledge of and access to the educational and career opportunities Wake Forest provides. When they arrive at Wake Forest, they are assigned faculty mentors, but they also meet regularly with the director of the Magnolia Scholars program, Nate French. I think the gift is extremely important because it allows Wake Forest to highlight, financially support and more fully engage first generation students, French said. All of these first generation students have strong academic preparation and tremendous motivation to succeed. What distinguishes the Magnolia Scholars program is the student support programming. It enables us to provide a more complete, enriching experience for students. Dr. Scott served as a member of Wake Forests Parents Council from 1993 to 1997 and previously served on the Schools of Business Board of Visitors. Two of his five children, Rob and Marc, are Wake Forest graduates. Rob earned an MBA and medical degree from Wake Forest in 2000. Marc earned a bachelors degree in economics from Wake Forest in 1997 and played on the basketball team. Dr. Scott is the chairman of Scott Holdings, LLC, a medical investment company. He founded Coastal Physician Group (later named PhyAmerica), a physician-staffing agency, and led Vista Health Plans of Florida before it was sold to Coventry Health Care in 2007. Community News Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune By Stephanie NeeleyOliver Beardsley, a fifth-grader at Addison Mizner Elementary School, has been selected to participate in the Junior National Youth Leadership Conference in Washington, D.C. this summer. More than 250 outstanding middle school students from across the United States will take part in this six-day extraordinary leadership conference themed Voices of Leadership: Reflecting on the Past to create the Future, sponsored by the Congressional Youth Leadership Council. This is exciting for me, Oliver, 11, said. Ive learned a lot about how government works in class, but I am excited to see it first hand in Washington, D.C. This is a once-ina-lifetime trip. A perennial figure on the schools honor roll, Oliver is also active in the schools safety patrol program and plays on the Boca Select Travel Basketball team. I see a lot of students come and go through my classroom, but Oliver stands out, said Alicia Ostendorf, Olivers fifth-grade teacher who nominated him. He is a delight in the classroom, always eager to learn and inquisitive. I nominated him for the Junior National Youth Leadership Conference because I know he will make the most of it. Who knows? Maybe one day hell be talking to future JrNYLC groups as a senator or president. The Junior National Young Leaders Conference introduces young people to the rich tradition of leadership throughout American history, while helping them to develop their own leadership skills. The aim of the Junior National Young Leaders Conference is to inspire students to recognize their own leadership skills, measure their skills against those of current and former leaders and return home with new confidence in their ability to exercise positive influence within their communities, said Marguerite Regan, Ph.D., dean of academic affairs for the Congressional Youth Leadership Council. Young people are not only welcome in Washington, D.C., they actually keep this city and our country running. Participants will take part in educational activities and presentations. They will explore relevant sites, such as Harpers Ferry National Historical Park, West Virginia and the nations capital, museums and memorials. In addition to examining notable U.S. leaders and historic figures, students will study the impact of leadership throughout critical periods of American history including the Civil War and Reconstruction, World War II, the Great Depression and the Civil Rights Movement. Upon completion of JrNYLC, students gained a greater sense of the role of individuals in American democracy, as well as the responsibilities of being a leader, organizers said. CYLC is a nonpartisan, educational organization. Since 1985, the Council has inspired more than 200,000 young people to achieve their full leadership potential.Addison Mizner Student to Attend Youth Leadership Conference in DC Continued from page 1
Edition 1445for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comMay 3, through May 9, 2013Community NewsCOMMUNITY NEWS BEST QUALITY AND VALUE I N T RA V EL while the Health Departments own 24page document details more than eight years of serious violations. The Palm Beach County Health Department is the local arm of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, which enforces the Florida Safe Drinking Water Act. The city faced more than $250, 000 in fines, was cited for failing to implement safeguards to prevent sewage from contaminating drinking water and revealed it had an unlicensed contractor install an illegal system to pump chemicals into city water lines, according to official records obtained by the Boca Raton Tribune. Health Department spokesman Tim OConnor said the city must have provided evidence to the contrary in the discovery phase. During the discovery phase, most of the actions are either proven or disproven, he said. I cant speculate on what was there, OConnor said. But he did say a lot of the violations were procedurals. They built a new water plant and did a change over, he said. The main thing in all of this is the drinking water is not in jeopardy, he contended. The attorneys worked out the settlement, OConnor said. Thats what unsettles Phillips, also an attorney. Such agencies generally do not spend so much time investigating and litigating to no avail, he noted. The litigation began in 2009. Usually when these agencies file an administrative complaint, their success rate is in excess of 80 percent if it goes to hearing, he said. The general counsel will look for holes. They dont file the complaint unless they are very certain that when they get to hearing, what they are going to file. It is still not clear whether the city addressed all the counts. The Boca Raton Tribune filed a public records request on April 23, asking for that information. Florida law requires a response within a reasonable time. Documents that are readily available should b provided within 24 hours, if possible, according to the Florida Attorney Generals office. The Tribune has not received an answer from the city. Assistant City Manager Michael Woika has said the initial investigation by the Health Department was flawed. The allegations that there were times when the public was not protected was not true, he told the Tribune in an earlier report, calling the departments findings a bunch of crap, untrue and laughable. He said the city challenged the results with factual statistics and threatened to go to court. The Health Department, after evaluating the documents provided, changed its findings, he said.

8 -Edition 144 May 3, through May 9, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher Business C.E.OC.O.O. Editorial Interim Editor Managing Editor Copy Editor Online Edition Editor Social Media Software Engineer A Gala Night Fitting for 18 Bright TeenagersRecently I attended a black-tie affair at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Boca Raton where 18 young ladies were formally introduced into society. These young debutantes from the Frances J. Bright Womans Club were clad in long, white gowns and they shimmered and glowed, brighter by far than the chandeliers above their heads. The evening was the capstone of somewhat of an eight-monthcharm school where they learned etiquette, domestic violence prevention, communication skills, conflict resolution, among other traits. Surrounded by family and friends, these debs, all graduating seniors, were escorted into the ballroom by their fathers. Each girl then presented her mom or in some cases, another relative, a rose and curtsied. The escorts, who were area students, took them to their places on stage while the fathers ushered the adult ladies to their seats. Except for a few glitches, it was one of those near picture-perfect evenings, a treasured scrapbook moment to be handed down someday to a little sister, a daughter or granddaughter. For me, this evening explained the transformation Ive noticed in some of these young ladies. I spend a considerable amount of time around them on their campuses and in the community in one of the many hats I wear, as a mentor. They are your normal students, not all have all As and Bs, but they all are ambitious. All plan to attend an institution of higher learning. They are poised young women and it appears they all are of good moral character. Most importantly, they are philanthropists. The 46th Annual Debutante Cotillion is major fund-raiser of the 54-yearold organization named after Frances Jane Bright one of the earlier black educators and Delrays most outstanding black woman. The cotillion accomplishes several things the teacher would have appreciated. The club awards a fouryear scholarship to one young lady and yearly scholarships to seniors at Boca Raton High School, Atlantic High School, Spanish River High School in Boca Raton and Santaluces High School in Lantana. That is the thinking behind the annual event. It goes much deeper than gowns, gloves and glitz. That one fairy-tale night took months of preparation. In fact, the girls started out snapping gum and gabbing on cellphones, typical teenagers. They were transformed into princesses by members of the Frances J. Bright Womans Club. Many members are also mothers, grandmothers and former debutantes themselves. I remember after moving to the area nearly 30 years ago, hearing about Frances Jane Bright, the woman small of stature with dark brown skin and startling white hair. The late Mrs. Hattie Ruth Pompey once said that when she spoke her mind about the black women in town, people listened. She was always in Sunday school, always in church, she loved to dance and her favorite people were young people so it was only fitting that they continue to promote her legacy through this event. Its so nice to see that today, the members of this organization, some in their sunset years, are still trying to teach the young people the ideals that dynamic leader, educator, organizer and Christian woman practiced. address. to the editor.Letter Guidelines Letters to the EditorThe article on Murky drinking water interested me when it appeared last week. But it interests me even more after Mr Heizer shared with us the action taken by the Asst City Manager, who demanded a retraction. Thank you for sharing both stories. We live in a beautiful place. We are lulled by our wish to believe everything is perfect. We need to know what is murky. Doesnt the family of Bocas Mayor have ties to a water storage & water treatment solution company called Florida Aqua Store? If so then something seems especially wrong with this situation as a top city official should know better. Tip of the iceberg. D Welch This story is funny because the same thing happened to me. During a city council meeting, I asked about the published reports that Boca had been fined/warned etc by the PBCHD for safety violations regarding Boca Ratons drinking water. Mike Woika passed me a hand written not assuring me there is no swage in Boca Ratons drinking water. When I question his claim (in an email I still have) compared to the facts and my doubts of the creditability of Boca Ratons officials on the mater, he wrote me a very condescending doubletalk reply suggesting I will not respond to him showing Woika is more focused on belittling concerned citizens than solving the sewage in Bocas drinking water problem. Seeing a pattern here sodont drink the water if the best Boca officials can do is send Woika out to bully and intimidate concerned citizens on a matter as serious as this. Makes you wonder what else are Bocas city official hiding? H Klier bocaratontribune.com

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. A Hunger for Knowledge! By Douglas HeizerTHOUGHTS FROM THE PUBLISHER You Do Not Need To Do All The WorkEvery field of knowledge is expanding, and new areas of intellectual investigation are being developed at rapid pace. Several new bona fide academic disciplines are born all the time, becoming a significant part of universities, colleges and graduate schools curricula, in varied new subjects. Books and essays on these subjects also bound! Instead of discouraging the public from pursuing these, hopefully many will there be who will immerse themselves in learning what is new and worth to be learned, knowing in greater depth what is there to be known, so as to affect societies in varied, positive ways. Contemporary thinker and author, Os Guinness, stressed in one of his many books that there is always more to knowing than human knowing will ever know. Even then, the incentive can be present to devote study time and discipline to grasp what can be known and transform such new discovery into concrete acts of service for other segments of society. In spite of such plethora of possibilities, one will pursue only an area of personal interest. This may come via courses taken, conferences attended, degrees sought, or merely through personal readings which can grant reasonable amounts of significant new knowledge of the subject in question. In ancient times, the author of the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes, reflected that of making many books there is no end.. (12:12a) I wonder what he would say if he lived in the 21st century, when book production has reached enormous proportions, be they in printed form or electronically. All this simply points to the fact that no one needs to remain in ignorance about any subject because so much has been written about all that individuals and multitudes desire to learn, know and apply! Although knowing has an immediate effect on the knower, it should also produce a positive effect on many others who can benefit from what others come to acquire and utilize in bringing advantages to countless more fellow members of the human race. Knowledge is not intended to create an elite in any society and, to the extent that it is properly stimulated among children, youth, and adults, it will achieve healthy results in those seekers as it has been the case for many generations already!by Robert Foster Tractors all over the midwestern United States and in agricultural areas around the world are roaring to life, starting their annual pilgrimage into the fields. John Deeres, Fords, New Hollands and Massey Fergusons will sow corn, wheat, soybean, and cottonseed and seeds for other crops. Then, depending on the weather, irrigation systems will hydrate those fields. What does the farmer do next? Other than an application of fertilizer or insecticide, his job is simply to watch and wait! Something has to occur that is beyond the farmers ability to control or direct. The seed must germinate and begin to grow. The farmer, as much as he would like to, cannot force the growth. In the New Testament of the Bible, the apostle Paul referred to this reality in spiritual terms when he stated, I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth! (1 Corinthians 3:6). For those of us living predominantly in service-oriented economies where we have to make it happen, no one thinks seriously about waiting and watching. The marketplace cheers the one who gets results. We are so far removed from the agricultural economy of our forefathers that even though we might agree with Pauls logic, the impact of his words appears quaint and hopelessly out-of-date. As we scurry about frantically, whether in the modern-day business and professional world, in our personal pursuits, or seeking to serve others, perhaps it is time for some core biblical truth to bring sanity and a sense of humility to our perspective about what we can do and what we cannot. Pauls comments later in the same passage offer enlightenment: God does not need us. Neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything (1 Corinthians 3:7). God, however, chooses to use us and is pleased to do so. What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants (1 Corinthians 3:5). God gives opportunities to us to be of service to Him and others, and to participate in His divine purposes. as the Lord has assigned to each his task (1 Corinthians 3:5). Often, out of our insecurity or pride, we want to take the credit, to receive recognition: I did this! Yet how vital it is to let these truths filter deep within us so we release this need to take credit, or feel like we have to be in control. Instead, we can humbly accept our given roles in simply contributing to what God is doing in the world around us. Do you remember the Super Bowl commercial in which the little boy runs around the house wearing a Darth Vader costume attempting to use the Force? Despite his best efforts and determination, nothing happens with the dryer, the dog or the doll. Then he raises his arms at his fathers car in the driveway. The lights blink and the engine starts all to the amazement of the boy, and to the playfulness of the dad who was watching in the kitchen, starting the car with a wireless push button ignition. In the TV commercial, the father intervened. In a far greater, more profound way, God our heavenly Father is intimately and intricately involved to make all things happen. The Bible makes this clear. Jesus told His followers, apart from me, you can accomplish nothing (John 15:5). Later, the apostle Paul declared, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me (Philippians 4:13).

Edition 14411for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comMay 3, through May 9, 2013 DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Grand Parents RightsMichael H. Gora has been certified by the Board of Education and Specialization of The Florida Bar as a specialist in family and matrimonial law and is a partner with Shapiro Blasi Wasserman & Gora P.A. in Boca Raton. Mr. Gora can be reached at email@example.com. As long as you work with people, the odds are high that they will hurt you at different times. Customers will abuse you. Competitors will lie about you. Associates will betray you. Bosses will not appreciate you. Sometimes people hurt you intentionally, sometimes they do it unintentionally. It doesnt matter it still causes pain just the same! The typical response when we are hurt is to become resentful. Resentment is holding onto a hurt. Rather than letting it go, you remember the hurt by reviewing it again and again in your mind. However, rather than making you feel better, resentment only intensifies the hurt. Every time you review it, the hurt seems to get bigger and it feels even more unfair. The Bible states that resentment is self-defeating and gives three reasons for this: It is unreasonable. Harboring resentment will not change the past or correct the problem. It just causes you to act in foolish ways. To worry yourself to death with resentment is a foolish thing to do (Job 5:2). It is unhelpful! Resentment always hurts you more than it does the person you resent. You feel miserable while the offender goes unaffected! You are only hurting yourself with your anger (Job 18:4). It is unhealthy! Physicians say that resentment is an unhealthy emotion. It can literally poison your system. Some men stay healthy until they die. Others live and die with bitter hearts (Job 21:23-25). If all of the above is true, there remains an important question: How should we handle the hurt? 1. REVEAL YOUR HURT. Admit it to someone you trust. And tell God you hurt. Dont repress it confess it! If you swallow your anger, your stomach will keep score. I say, Revealing your feeling is the beginning of healing. 2. RELEASE YOUR OFFENDER. Let them go. Forgive them for your own peace of mind. You will never stop hurting until you have forgiven them, whether they have requested forgiveness or not. Just remember how much God has forgiven you and trust God to settle the score. 3. REFOCUS YOUR LIFE. As long as you focus on someone you hate you allow him or her to control you. When you say, He makes me so mad, you are admitting that he has control over your emotions. Do not simply resist the resentment; replace it with other thoughts. Remember this simple truth: You can only have one thought at a time and YOU are responsible for that thought! Adapted from a column by Dr. Rick Warren, the author of numerous books, including the highly acclaimed, The PurposeDrive Life, which has been translated into many languages and sold throughout the world. It affirms the importance of having a carefully considered, clearly expressed purpose to guide everyday life.Q My wife and I have been divorced for five years. We have two children. In a final judgment, entered by a judge, after a trial, she was designated as the residential parent with me as the visiting parent. Since then I have seen my children occasionally, but have not insisted upon all of my rights, because every time I did she busted my chops. I am up to date on my child support, and I provide the health insurance for the children through my job. A month ago, unfortunately, my ex lost her battle with breast cancer. My mother-in-law immediately moved into my old house with the kids. She never liked me. I told her the children ought to live with me now; she disagreed, calling me some name in front of the children. I live with a girl friend. We have no plans to marry. We live in a threebedroom rental. My former motherin-law says she will not let me have the children, even for visitation. While she was alive, my ex-wife let me have the visitation that was in the judgment, whenever I wanted, and tried to get me to take them more often. The mother-in-law has filed some legal papers, claiming that she should be given the children on a full time basis. She also says that I should only have supervised vitiation, if any. She claims I am a danger to my children because I am a diagnosed alcoholic, although I have been on the wagon for years. She claims I am a bad influence on the children because I live with my girlfriend, in a neighborhood that is not a good as my old neighborhood, and ride a Harley. My lawyer claims that she may have a case. What do you think? A: Under a United States Supreme Court decision many years ago, grandparents rights to grandchildren, then granted by Florida statutes were held unconstitutional. Those statutes had given grandparents independent rights to visitation with their grandchildren, whether or not the parents were happily married, divorced, or going through a divorce. The Florida Supreme Court followed legal precedent established by the United State Supreme Court, which held that a parents rights to a parental; relationship with their children had a constitution basis, which superceded the rights of any other relative. However, these rights are not without a limit. In order for your mother-in law to establish the rights that she seeks, she would have to prove a very substantial likelihood that you are a danger to your children, and that your rights as a parent should be totally removed. Her evidence would have to establish that your parenting would put the children in significant and real danger. The level of proof to terminate parental rights is significant and not often invoked by Florida Courts in situations where you have had a continuing relationship with the children. More importantly, you were, recently approved for typical access to your children by a Florida Circuit Court Judge in a contested dissolution of marriage case. It is unlikely, unless you have done something to seriously put your children in great danger after the Final Dissolution judgment, that another circuit judge would terminate your parental rights and turns the children over to your mother-in-law. Hopefully, she has a reasonable lawyer, and you can negotiate your way out of your problem. A court will not be allowed to give visitation to your childrens grandparents without your agreement.When People Hurt You At WorkFAITHBy Rick Warren bocaratontribune.com

May 3, through May 9, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B2 Edition 144 Section B Entertainment Skip SheffieldBig Stars Get Naughty in The Big WeddingBy Skip SheffieldThe Big Wedding offers some big-name movie stars the chance to talk dirty, act naughty and get paid well for it. Diane Keaton and Robert De Niro play a divorced couple who are asked to pretend they are still married at the wedding of their adopted son. Those of you who are divorced will surely know what a terrible idea this is, but it is the hook cooked up by writer-director Justin Zackham. Zackham is a bright young NYU Film School graduate who wrote the screen play for The Bucket List. Both The Bucket List and Big Wedding deal in black humor, but the latter is more a sex farce. This is clear at the outset when we see Ellie (Diane Keaton) find the hidden key to a big, beautiful lakefront estate in Connecticut to let herself in unannounced. Though Ellie has been divorced ten years from sculptor Don (Robert De Niro), she still has affection for the guy who cheated on her with her former best friend Bebe (Susan Sarandon). Ellie picks a particularly embarrassing moment to barge in on Don and Bebe. This sets the tone for embarrassment galore to come. Bebe has been living with Don ever since Ellie left and has been acting as a step mother to offspring Lyla (Katherine Heigl), Jared (Topher Grace) and adopted son Alejandro (Ben Barnes). Lyla is married but separated. Jared is a doctor and a prime catch for all the females in his vicinity, but he has vowed to remain a virgin until true love comes along. Jared is almost 30 and still waiting. Alejando is engaged to be married to Missy (Amanda Seyfried), the lovely daughter of Dons snobby, insufferable neighbors Muffy (Christine Ebersole) and Barry (David Rasche). Alejandros real mother is Madonna (Patricia Rae) a very pious Catholic woman who lives in Columbia. Madonna has never before come to the USA, but to be at her sons side she decides to visit, with her nubile daughter Nuria (Ana Ayora). Did we mention Don is a recovering alcoholic who has been sober three years, or that Bebe has been asked to bear the humiliation of Ellie masquerading in her role? Oh, and how about the fact Nuria takes an instant shine to Jared, despite the fact he is technically her halfbrother? Throw Robin Williams in as a boozy priest, and you have the recipe for chaos. To the credit of all involved, Big Wedding is very funny, though the laughs may feel guilty. Three starsNo Place on Earth a Place to SurviveNo Place on Earth is as serious as Big Wedding is silly. This is a true story of surviving the Holocaust in a remote corner of western Ukraine. In 1942, when Germany invaded Russia, the Ukraine was part of the USSR. Esther Stermer was a mother determined to survive with her children at any cost. She and fellow Ukrainian Jews discovered the passageway to a large cave, and it was there they hid for a year and a half while war raged above. The cave was rediscovered by an American spelunker and amateur detective Chris Nicola, who discovered clothes, shoes, pottery and other evidences of human inhabitation in the vast cave system. Nicolas investigation uncovered the amazing story of the survival of 38 men, women and children from late 1942 until liberation in March, 1944. The story is recounted in a memoir titled We Fight to Survive, by Esther Stermer. Nicola and film writer-director Janet Tobias found survivors of the Stermer and Dodyk families in New York and Montreal and offered them the opportunity to revisit the dark refuge they had left 67 years ago. Tobias recorded remembrances by Saul and Sam Stermer and Sonia and Simia Dodyk. All were children then, but are elderly now. Combined with Nicolas detective tale and dramatic recreations by actors, the tale of survival is dramatized. No Place is literally dark. The interviews are barely lit, perhaps to simulate the darkness of the cave. No Place is not as exciting or heart-wrenching as many Holocaust stories, but it is a remarkable account of the human spirit in a lesson one must never forget. Two and a half stars
Edition 144 B3Section B May 3, through May 9, 2013www.bocaratontribune.com Phyllis Gs Enigma Is Cre ative Continental Cuisine Food Review Marc Kent bocaratontribune.com An amazing number of dining specialties are listed on the permanent menu for the delight of experienced diners. Pam and Keith, and then Paul and this reviewer elected to sample each of the 6 soups listed. The Bahamian conch had deep flavor with a light bite that lingers, the creamy lobster bisque had an unusual, sweet flavor which we applaud. New England chowder was fine as was the black bean soup served with sour cream and diced raw onions. We chose the fried calamari, excellent in both taste and texture with tangy marinara sauce. Ditto for the clams marinara, tiny bivalves with tomatoes, and fresh basil plus a dusting of Italian seasonings The Maryland lump crab cake, pan seared, had little of the crab taste sorry. The other nine appetizers included sweet conch fritters, nicely fried with island sauce and coleslaw plus large size coconut shrimp, fried to perfection in coconut butter. Of the eleven pasta specialties we chose to taste a great pasta primavera penne pasta tossed with fresh broccoli, summer squash and zucchini with, our choice, marinara sauce. One may have it either alfredo or anglio e olie as well. Loving seafood, we tasted the linguini Pescatore with fresh scallops, shrimp and mussels tossed with littlenecks in a white cream saucevery, very fine. Also, we tasted a very garlicky dish of linguini, with white clam sauce delicious taste and texture. Four salad offerings include a very nice Caesar with shards of romaine and croutons a light yet full bodies dressing with just a touch of anchovy flavor. One may wish to add either or both shrimp and chicken to add to the pleasant taste. The Greek salad was delicious with the romaine tossed with tomato, cucumber, red onions, green olives and feta cheese in homemade Greek dressing. Sante Fe salad adds black beans, corn mexicili, cheese and tortilla chips to the romaine, tomatoes and cucumber for another choice dish. There are fifteen seafood specialties and we tasted most of the major ingredients in the pasta dishes we had. Well return to sample may of the others another time, particularly the broiled seafood combination and the shrimp scampi. The veal specialties seven in number include an excellent veal Marsala-very, very thin veal medallions were sauted with fresh mushrooms and sliced apples in an imported Marsala wine reduction superior dish with perfectly cooked home made linguini a must try. We also will sample others on our next visit. Try any of the seven beef/pork specialties-we sampled the Cuban skirt steak, done medium well and feel this superior dish is a must try. As for the chicken specialties, well sample a few of the seven offerings when we return. The standard menu lists 4 burgers and 3 sandwiches in addition to 6 sides. The Engima offers beer, wine and the house favorites red and white sangrias both light and fruity. Note: there are daily specials off the standard menu. The fantastic paella with its complex tastes arrived in a pot that was enough for two maybe three diners. If it should be on your menu go for it! The dessert include homemade chocolate cake, tres leche and a great flan were the very fine sweet endings to our review. Our waiter Apita joined Owner/Chef Nas Weismmuller in suggesting several of the dishes we sampled Thank you both!

They loved to play cars. Lets play cars! suggested William. Ok, said Kenny. Lets go get them! William announced. Ok, said Kenny. Where are my cars? inquired William. I dont know, replied Kenny. Oh, here they are, William answered. Yay! You found them! shouted Kenny. Yep. Oh, I wanted you to see my favorite car that I forgot to show you last time, William said. Here it is. Oh that one, Ive seen it before, Kenny says. Oh sorry, I forgot, replied William. Its ok, said Kenny. I dont mind seeing your cars, but now its my turn to show you a car. Ok, said William. This is my favorite car, Kenny said. Whoa, cool, said William. May I play with it? asked William eagerly. Uh, I guess, said Kenny uncertainly. Oh, thank you, William answered as he grabbed the car out of Kennys hands. Um, Kenny stuttered as William played with his toy car. Ill let you play with it for 15 minutes then its my turn, said Kenny. Ok, agreed William as he was rolling the toy car around on the floor. 15 minutes later Ok, its my turn now, Kenny reminded. Aw, why? asked William. Because your 15 minutes are up, said Kenny. But, said William. I didnt get to play with it long enough. Fine, but only 10 more minutes, permitted Kenny. Hooray! Thank you! said William. Aw, replied Kenny sadly to himself. 10 minutes later Ok, William. Its my turn to play now. But, I want to play some more, William said. No! Kenny shouted out. I want to play! Ive tried to be nice, but its my turn now! Kenny shouted. No! I want it! I want to play more! William shouted back. Fine, you can have it, but Im going home! shouted Kenny sadly as he ran out the door. Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh haah haaaaaah! Kenny screamed. Just then Williams mother walked into the room. She was very upset. What happened in here? asked Williams mom. At first I heard you guys shouting and screaming, but I thought it was just a playing around scream like kids do, but then I saw Kenny run out crying. What did you say to him? asked his mother angrily. Oooooohhhhh, Im sorry! He just had a cool car and I wanted to play with it and, waaaaaahhh haaah haaaaaah! cried William. Oh, its ok honey, said his mother. No, its not ok. I have to apologize to him and give him his toy car back, stated William. Ok, honey. Lets do it, said his mother. Hi, Kenny, sorry about earlier today. Heres your toy car back. Sorry, said William. Its ok, answered Kenny. Friends? William asks. Friends, says Kenny. A soft answer turns away wrath, But a harsh word stirs up anger. (Prov. 15:1 NKJV) Anger is not something we should have daily, or at all. Although most of us have it, we shouldnt. God didnt create us to be angry; he created us to enjoy the world he created. Even though a lot of stuff doesnt go well, or the way we planned, we should trust God and never give up faith. He is our God and the true one. -With prayers for everyone, and the assurance that God loves you, your friend, Caleb. (Caleb Lucas is a resident of Palm Beach County with his family. In addition to writing these monthly stories, he also loves and plays baseball and football, besides taking piano and trumpet lessons).

Plant a Tree in Memory of a Loved One and plant a tree in Israel as a living tribute of your loved one. By CRA News ServiceMore than 100 supporters attended an evening of art, entertainment and music at William Debilzen Art Gallery downtown Delray Beach recently. The event was a benefit for Hailey Kennedy, the 13-year-old Delray Beach girl, who was diagnosed with Acute myeloid leukemia. Hailey is a gifted singer at Bak Middle School of the Arts in West Palm Beach and she wants to someday be a singer. So it was only fitting that Jace Vek, a local accomplished musician, perform at her benefit. Vek wrote and performed a tribute to Hailey. Local comedian and radio talk show host George DeMartino was the master of ceremonies. DeMartino had 11-year-old Liam Asayat as his sidekick. The aspiring musician and philanthropist has not had a birthday party since he was 6. Instead, he asked his friends to bring money, which he donated to other kids. Liam recently performed with a band at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and raised $7,000, which was donated to a school in Pahokee. I always thought to myself, basically I have all the stuff I need so I just gave it to other kids who dont have it, he said. I give the schools money and sometimes I give it to the food bank because I want to help the homeless.
May 3, through May 9, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.com B6 Edition 144 Section B Iron Man Quips and Jokes His Way Through ArmageddonIron Man 3 is a critic-proof movie. Before it opens in America May 3, it will have pretty much made back its production costs abroad. What separates IM 3 from the rest of the Marvel Comics universe is its leading man, Robert Downey, Jr., and a clever, strong supporting cast. Downey has a wry, world-weary demeanor that suits his character of brilliant, eccentric inventor/ industrialist Tony Stark. How Stark earns all the money to support his lavish lifestyle is never explained. Its just a given, as is Starks gravity and physics-defying Iron Man armor that transforms him from mortal to super hero. Now parts of the suit fly through the air from distant parts to land on Tony in the nick of time. As with every other super hero adventure, the world is at peril. This time it is from a shadowy figure who calls himself The Mandarin. Insert bad Chinese jokes here. The Mandarin is played by AngloIndian actor Ben Kingsley, an actor who can radiate menace and power as well as complete silliness. In this role Kingsley is asked to do both. Both Tony Stark and The Mandarin have their weak, vulnerable sides. This adds to their appeal both as hero and villain. The IM 3 script is co-written by Shane Black (and at least five others). Black is responsible for the script of the original Lethal Weapon and its sequel as well as Last Boy Scout. He does have a way with a witty quip, which is Tony Starks secret weapon between explosions and catastrophes. This is a good thing, because without the jokes, IM 3 would be pretty boring. It already is too long. It is evident that all the principal characters have spent serious time in the gym. This includes Gwyneth Paltrow as Tony Starks gal pal, Pepper Potts. Pepper even gets the chance to don an IM suit and do some butt-kicking of her own. Starks best buddy Col. James Rhodes, played by Don Cheadle, looks immaculately buff and is good at a deadpan quip as Downey. There is a lot of absurd scenerychewing going on, with characters eyes glowing red before they go wacko. The chief chomper is Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian, a devious schemer who is also a wannabe boyfriend of Pepper Potts. Rebecca Hall gets pretty crazy too as double agent Maya Hansen. The complex and incomprehensible plot culminates in Miami, natch, where the famed Viscaya becomes a lair for the villains and the sky over Key Biscayne becomes populated with falling people. So line up and pay your money if youd like. What I or any other reviewer thinks does not matter. Frankly there is not much else going on in May other than sequels (Fast & Furious 6, Hangover 3, Star Trek Into Darkness) and the remake of The Great Gatsby with Leo DiCaprio. Two and a half stars

Kims experience, knowledge, skills and abilities have been demonstrated by leading Medic 4 (ME4) on two successful cardiac arrest resuscitations on 10/28/2012 and 4/2/2013. Lt. Puchalski has four years experience as an Emergency Room Registered Nurse at Good Samaritan Hospital. The combinations of paramedic and nursing experience permit her to make intuitive decisions such as on 8/29/2012 when she was persistent and convinced an earlier fall victim for 37 minutes to permit transportation By BRFRS to the emergency room. The patient was upgraded to a trauma alert enroute to Delray Medical Center and later diagnosed with a hemopnuemothorax and three rib fractures. Kim goes over and above in the area of call volume and response readiness; consistently taking alarms whenever closer without hesitation. In addition, whenever ME4 is still busy from the previous shift, Lt. Puchalski has ME24 ready to respond and has responded when called upon. Lt. Puchalskis service & dedication to the community is exceptional, always placing others first. On 11/1/2012 a Boca Teeca citizen knocked on the door at station 4 concerned for the welfare of a new Highland Beach friend of whom she had limited information about and who had not arrived for a weekly card game. Kim researched the condominium information, found a complete name, contacted police for a welfare check, and found the person while calling hospitals at Boca Raton Regional Hospital ICU. On 2/1/2013 Kim assisted a disabled motorist by safely pushing their vehicle to the side of the roadway in the middle of the night. Kim participated in the Boca EMS competition in 2012, MDA boot drive on 8/30/2012, Boca Fire Benevolent Golf Tournament in 2012, Santa Toy Drop in 2012, Sweetheart Ball in 2013, and the Department Fire Expo on 2/23/2013. Kim recently became a certified Child Passenger Seat Technician and has since assisted parents with at least 10 car seat installations. Kims dedication to her coworkers are obvious as she precepts our probationary firefighter paramedics. She consistently receives new employees to train, supervise, and evaluate because of her commitment to excellence. Over the last three years she has trained 7 of our new employees. She spent several hours daily delivering medical knowledge and practice to each one of these employees. Each one has completed their probation successfully and has become outstanding employees. In addition to mentoring new employees on a daily basis, Lt. Puchalski reviews protocols, medication dosages, and equipment every day during the daily apparatus inventory and check off with the other members of her crew as well. The above represents a typical year with Lieutenant Kim Puchalski who consistently displays the best of the fire service with her quality, compassion, superior work ethic, and courtesy. For all the reasons we chose Lt. Kim Puchalski as our 2013 Paramedic of the Year. Congratulations! A ceremony will be held at time and date to be determined. Man charged with burglarizing Talias Tuscan restaurantBoca Raton, FL On Sunday, February 10, 2013, at about 7:30 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to burglary at Talias Tuscan Table restaurant, 4070 North Dixie Highway. A witness saw a male exit the smashed out front door of the business, then leave in a beat up white pickup truck with front end damage. The witness described the suspect as a Hispanic male about 5 tall, with tattoos on both arms. Officers determined that cash was taken from the register. Detectives investigating the crime spoke with a Palm Beach County Sheriffs (PBSO) detective who was investigating two similar burglaries and believed their suspect was the same person. Shortly thereafter, the PBSO detective contacted the Boca Raton detective and said he had identified the suspect as William Finkle, who had been incarcerated at the Palm Beach County Jail for attempted homicide since February 13th. Detectives spoke with one of Finkles family members, who identified Finkle as the person seen in the surveillance video during the burglary of Talias. The family member also said Finkle drove an older model Dodge pickup truck with front end damage. Detectives charged Finkle with burglary to a business and petit theft. Man arrested after snatching phone from baby strollerBoca Raton, FL On Monday, April 1 at about 7:10 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a robbery that occurred at Nordstrom, 5820 West Glades Road. The victim was at the Nordstrom E-Bar with her family when she heard her 12 year old daughter scream. Her daughter had her hand on their stroller, when a male tried to pull it from her grasp. When the daughter refused to let go of the stroller the suspect tried to push her hands away then grabbed an iPhone that was sitting on the stroller and ran. The victims husband chased the suspect while another patron called police. Police were on scene almost immediately and made contact with the victims husband, several bystanders, and the suspect at a nearby canal. The suspect, identified as Tyler Korman, had jumped into the water in an attempt to elude capture, but soon discovered the water was too deep and he was not a strong swimmer. Korman got out of the water and surrendered to police. The phone was recovered and the victim identified Korman as the person who stole her phone. Officers arrested Korman and when they searched him, they found two syringes and a metal spoon. Korman was charged with robbery by sudden snatching, grand theft, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

28 -Edition 144 May 3, through May 9, 2013 www.bocaratontribune.comThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers, in cooperation with Cruzeiro Esporte Clube, are proud to announce an international friendly between the two teams on Sunday, June 23, at historic Lockhart Stadium with kickoff scheduled for 6:00 p.m. The announcement of the match demonstrates the clubs dedication to bringing great entertainment to South Floridas fans of soccer, both domestic and international. We are thrilled to welcome such a highly respected team and organization like Cruzeiro, said Strikers President Tom Mulroy. They have an amazing tradition as one of the greatest clubs in Brazilian soccer history and feature players capable of playing at the highest level anywhere in the world. The game will be a special treat for all of South Floridas fantastic soccer fans. Cruzeiro play in the top level of Brazilian soccer and hold the distinction of being the only club in Brazil to ever win the Campeonato Brasileiro Srie A, the Copa do Brasil and the Campeonato Mineiro in the same year (2003). Founded in 1921, Cruzeiro is one of only five teams to never have been relegated from Brazils top division. Cruzeiros rich soccer history includes players like Tosto, who led the team to victory against Peles Santos in the 1966 national championship, and a young Ronaldo, who helped the club to their first Copa do Brasil title in 1993. Today, Cruzeiro boasts some of the top talent in Brazil, including Ded, Diego Souza and Tinga, all of whom have made appearances for the senior Brazilian national team. The match comes one week before the final home game of the Spring championship season for the Strikers against the San Antonio Scorpions on June 29. Cruzeiro will remain in the U.S. as they follow up their match against the Strikers by traveling to Chicago to face Monarcas Morelia from Mexico on June 28.

Tickets start at just $15 and can also be purchased by calling the Strikers ticket office at 954-606-0400.SportsThe Boca Raton Tribune Don Estridge High Tech Middle school captured its fth Palm Beach County Championship in school historyThe Lady Dragons Soccer Team from Don Estridge High Tech Middle school captured its fifth Palm Beach County Championship in school history. The girls defeated Wellington Landings Middle School 2-0 on Friday, April 5th finishing an undefeated season, and their unfinished business. Last season, the Lady Dragons were defeated by Wellington Landings in overtime and the heartbreaking loss stuck with the girls all offseason. From the first day of tryouts, to the final whistle of this season, I have been telling the girls to finish your business. We have used the heartbreak from last season, to fuel us this season. The girls came out burning with pride from the first whistle, when off of a free kick from Valentina Lara, Co-captain, Sidney Jones banged in the rebound to give the Lady Dragons a 1-0. It stayed that throughout the physical game until Valentina Lara struck again. This time, with about 2 minutes remaining, she sent a pass through the midfield to a streaking Isabella Santini. Santini then shot it over the goalies head from about 20 yards out icing the game, and the championship for the girls. The girls had a miraculous season. The offensive onslaught resulted in 46 total goals scored, in 13 games played. Leading the Lady Dragons in scoring was Isabella Santini with 16 goals. Defensively, the girls could not have had a finer season. Sarah Bailey recorded 8 shutouts, and the back line in front of the eighth grade keeper (Brenda Martinez, Valentina Lara, Arianna Hilliard, and Hailey Skiff) did not allow a single goal all regular season. The final statistics for the Lady Dragons were 46 goals scored to only 2 allowed. I am extremely proud, and humbled to have coached such a fantastic team this year. The girls knew what was at stake, and how hard they needed to work to accomplish their goal. They truly [finished] their remarkable season.Strikers will host Brazilian giant Cruzeiro
Edition 14429for news 24/7 go to bocaratontribune.com www.bocaratontribune.comMay 3, through May 9, 2013SportsBy: David VerjanoEvery year football fans ponder the possibility of drafting the next game-changer, star athlete to their teams respective roster. This season Dolphins fans were extra eager to see the direction their team took after an aggressive offseason, highlighted by acquisitions like WR Mike Wallace and LB Dannell Ellerbe. So the Fins took to the clock with a new sense of hope as well as a new look, ready to build a contending team with solid draft choices. Heres the rundown on the Dolphins 2013 draft picks: 1. Dion Jordan (DE, Oregon) First Round, 3rd Overall Pick Height: 6 Weight: 248 lbs Continuing the theme of an aggressive offseason, the Dolphins made a splash early in the draft by unexpectedly trading up to the 3rd overall pick with the Oakland Raiders. At the point, many analysts were claiming Miami would take one of draft class highly touted offensive tackles. Nope. They went pass rusher. And they took the freak athlete known as Dion Jordan. If you havent watched the Sport Science feature on Jordan, then stop reading this post and go now. Talent wise, this guy has all the tools to compete in the NFL and become a premiere pass rusher in the league. While Oregon wasnt known for its defense, Jordan was a standout in both pass rushing and coverage situations. Miami will be thrilled to line up Jordan on one end and have Cameron Wake on the other. 2. Jamar Taylor (CB, Boise State) Second Round, 54th Overall Pick Height: 5 Weight: 192 lbs Last season Miami allowed the 6th most passing yards in the league. With that said, the secondary was clearly an area in need of improvement entering the draft especially after losing Vontae Davis and Sean Smith. Jamar Taylor was their first attempt at addressing that need. Taylor is a strong, physical defensive back (22 reps on bench press) that is unafraid of challenging receivers off the line. Hes also athletic enough to keep up with speedy receivers (ran a 4.39 40-yard dash) and make plays on the ball. He may need to sure up his run tackling technique and gain more discipline on reading routes but Taylor has plenty of upside. 3. Dallas Thomas (OT, Tennessee) Third Round, 77th Overall Pick Height: 6 Weight: 300 lbs Since trade talks with the Kansas City Chiefs over Branden Albert went awry, Miami decided to draft Dallas Thomas and add depth to the offensive line. Thomas is a versatile lineman that played both tackle and guard in college against SEC opponents. Analysts believe he would excel more in the NFL as a guard but could be a viable tackle option as well. Thomas provides both solid pass blocking and run blocking skills. Scouting reports state that he can defend against pass rushers with his agile footwork and fast recovery. In the run game, Thomas can pull block and reach the second level of defense quickly. Hell just have to adapt to stronger defensive linemen in the pro game and improve on areas like strength, quickness and consistent handwork. Looks like Thomas will become a plug-and-play lineman for the Dolphins in case of injury or when starting linemen need rest. 4. Will Davis (CB, Utah State) Third Round, 93rd Overall Pick Height: 5 Weight: 186 lbs As we mentioned earlier, the Fins needed to addressed their DB situation with secondary picks. So, they selected Will Davis in the third round; an athletic, fluid corner that is instinctive and has ball hawk tendencies. Many describe Davis as a raw talent with his limited football experience (only played one year in high school before entering college). But the kid has shown an impressive skill set on the field, deflecting and intercepting passes throughout his college career. Davis is known to be overaggressive at times and is susceptible to double moves by receivers as a result. However, his instincts get it right more times than not. 5. Jelani Jenkins (LB, Florida) Fourth Round, 104th Overall Pick Height: 6 Weight: 243 lbs The Dolphins didnt really need another linebacker; they already had seven on the roster entering the draft. Regardless, they felt that Jenkins could provide help on special teams and compete for a spot in their defensive sub-packages. Jenkins is known for his cover skills against running backs and tight ends. The main concern with Jenkins is his medical history, suffering from injuries to his hamstring, hand and foot during college. If he manages to stay healthy and earn a spot on the depth chart, Jenkins can provide solid tracking and tackling skills whenever hes on the field. 6. Dion Sims (TE, Michigan State) Fourth Round, 106th Overall Pick Height: 6 Weight: 262 lbs Miamis main two tight ends are Charles Clay and Dustin Keller, with Michael Egnew struggling to earn playing time. Enter Dion Sims; a big-bodied target that has the potential to become Miamis red zone threat. Despite his large stature, Sims actually has an impressive vertical jump (35 inches) and surprisingly soft hands. Beyond that, many scouts were impressed with his pass blocking skills something Anthony Fasano provided before he left to the Chiefs. Sims could use some work on run blocking situations and is limited when it comes to agility and quickness in the passing game. His frame alone is intriguing but hell have to prove his worth before lining up in a game for the Fins. 7. Mike Gillislee (RB, Florida) Fifth Round, 164th Overall Pick Height: 5 Weight: 208 lbs With three backs on the roster already, Miami decided to add more competition to the running back unit with this pick. Mike Gillislee is known as a strong back that prefers going inside and taking on defenders rather than being elusive. He is an well-rounded rusher that can also catch out of the backfield. Gillislee needs to work on his decisiveness in the ground attack in order to succeed in the pro game. Hell have staunch competition in Miami with Lamar Miller, Daniel Thomas and Marcus Thigpen ahead of him on the depth chart. His first shot at playing time may come in the special teams unit. 8. Caleb Sturgis (K, Florida) Fifth Round, 166th Overall Pick Height: 5 Weight: 188 lbs The Dolphins continued their University of Florida recruitment tour with the addition of Caleb Sturgis. That marked the third Gator drafted in two consecutive rounds. Dolphins Special Teams Coach, Darren Rizzi was very high on Sturgis and clearly approved of the pick. With that said, Dan Carpenters seat has officially begun to heat up. Look for Sturgis to compete for Carpenters job from day one. It might get interesting if Sturgis starts nailing 72-yard field goals in practice. 9. Don Jones (SS, Arkansas State) Seventh Round, 250th Overall Pick Height: 5 Weight: 191 lbs Just four spots away from being Mr. Irrelevant, Don Jones joined the Fins as their final pick of the 2013 draft. Jones was drafted as a strong safety but many believe hell be competing for a spot as cornerback. He was a track star back in high school, so you know the speed is there. Jones actually logged 4.42 and 4.40 times in his 40-yard dash during the Arkansas State pro day. There isnt much to say on his production in college other than he was sound special teams player and did a decent job playing the nickel position at Arkansas State. Looks like Miami just wanted to bring in his athletic skills to see if they can translate that into special teams production and perhaps secondary help.Miami Dolphins 2013 Draft Class Recap Dion Jordan

Perez started off the frame getting hit by a pitch, Alex Freedman followed with a single and Jason Matusik gave LU its first run of the day with a double. The two runners on base both found home plate off a Sal Giardina single. Saint Leo tied the game in the seventh, but Lynn quickly retook the Glaesers Woes Continues as Fort Lauderdale Falls 2-1 to RowdiesBy: Pedro HeizerThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers fell on Saturday 2-1 to the defending NASL Champions Tampa Bay Rowdies at Lockhart Stadium in front of 4,563 fans. The win is the Rowdies fifth against the Strikers since the NASL was reformed in 2011. The night had a few story-lines but none bigger than Daryl Shores decision to bench longtime starter Matt Glaeser in favor of Cody Laurendi. Glaeser, who has been struggling so far this season, was given the night off. Cody has been pushing Matt all season long, says head coach Daryl Shore about the switch. With a couple of bad results, we felt like Cody deserved his chance. Laurendi was having a great game on goal until the 35th minute when he was involved in a collision with a Rowdies player in the penalty area. Laurendi was taken to the hospital with what is believed to have been ruptured spleen. Matt Glaeser would replace Laurendi for Fort Lauderdale and in a few minutes would give up his seventh goal of the season when midfielder Luke Mulholland scored his third goal of the season off a shot from outside the 18yard box that curled into the bottom left corner of the net, taking a bounce off the post before it hit the back of the net. Its frustrating, said Shore. We had a good start to the game, but from the 30th to the 40th minute we let the game slip away from us. In the 78th minute, the Rowdies sealed the deal as substitute Alex Dixon scored his first goal for Tampa Bay, in what would eventually be the gamewinning goal. The ball came off a low cross from the left side by forward Georgi Hristov, which Dixon redirected in to make it 2-0 Rowdies. The Strikers tried to come back, and two minutes after the Rowdies took the 2-0 lead, second half substitute, Walter Restrepo made it 2-1 in the 80th minute. Restrepo was able to beat the Rowdies goalkeeper, who had come off his line, and score from a very sharp angle to the right side of goal. The Strikers looked for the equalizer in the last 10 minutes of the match, but Rowdies goalkeeper Diego Restrepo came up big on several dangerous chances. The Strikers fall to 0-1-3, with one point on the season. Fan Ejected From the Game After Restrepos goal, one of the organizers of the Strikers supporters groups was ejected from the game by the FLPD for setting off yellow smoke bombs. The crowd loudly communicated its displeasure with Fort Lauderdales finest as the young made was led away. Five minutes later, the Striker Liker was led back to his seat by a Strikers employee. Apparently he had special dispensation from the front office to set off the haze enhancers after Strikers goals and that had been communicated to the police detail working the game, but the message got lost somewhere after that. lead in the eighth. Giardina recorded another single and was able to find his way home off a Paul Stortini single. Jed Vandernaald continued his recent dominance on the mound, fanning an average of one batter per inning over seven frames. Andrew Melchor picked up the win for Lynn, entering in the eighth inning and closing out the game. On the offensive side Giardina and Stortini each had two hits while Giardina brought two runners home. Lynn rode the momentum from the previous game into the series finale, scoring a run in the opening inning. Perez started the game with his first of five hits and Giardina brought him home with a single to center field. Scoreless for the next five frames, Lynn added to the lead in the fourth inning. Corey Elasik led off with a single, and advanced on a Mike Gonzalez sac bunt. Chris Piperno singled up the middle to help his fellow senior score, and scored when Freedman took a shot deep down the right field line to put Lynn up 3-0. Saint Leo would respond in the bottom of the inning taking the lead 4-3. The Fighting Knights were able to briefly retake the lead in the fifth, but the Lions scored six times over the final two innings to take the series. Besides being perfect from the plate, Perez added two runs batted in. Freedman and Elasik also provided some offense with two hits and an rbi. Six different pitchers saw the mound for Lynn in the final game, with game one starter Joe Perrotta making a rare appearance in relief.
