Edition 1693for news 24/7 go to January 17, through January 23, 2014 Community News Community NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune By CRA News Service Adults across Palm Beach County this week began taking the new GED high school equivalency exam, which officials say is now a tougher, computerized tests. The face-lift, the first in more than a decade, makes it more rigorous and aligned to skills needed for college and todays workplace, education advocates said. The new exams are designed to better prepare students for vocational training, college or careers by testing the skills employers are looking for now, said Armando Diaz, spokesman for the GED Testing Service. Its more critical thinking instead of plug and chug, Diaz said. For example, many multiple choice, fill-in-the-bubble questions will be replaced with in-depth questions that require test-takers to read longer passages and show understanding by defending opinions in short answers or essays. The pass rates for the current GED tests have ranged from 66 percent to nearly 73 percent each year between 2002 to 2011. The new tests, overseen by the national GED Testing Service which is jointly owned by the Pearson learning company and the American Council on Education will condense five subjectmatter exams into four and will include more difficult questions aligned with new Common Core Curriculum Standards that have been adopted in Florida and most other states. Instead of taking tests with pencil and paper, students will have to take the exams on computers. The good news is the new computerized tests will immediately tell students whether they passed or failed. Education advocates are greeting it with mixed feelings. Some adult education principals say its important for the tests to keep up with current technology, while others are concerned that degree-seekers who are not computer proficient will be left behind. And the new GED has a new price: $128 for the full exam. The old paper and pencil test was $70.

The 30-foot endangered mammal appeared to have been attacked by sharks floating off shore before the tide washed it in on Jan. 10. The mammoth creatures carcass, which was decomposed, is estimated to weigh more 20 tons, and was too heavy to be moved. Scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration plan left the animal overnight and brought it to the lab in Miami the following day. Photo by: Taylor Lexis CortezBy: Quezia Salgado and Gina OnoriNew developments underway in Downtown Boca Raton leave some residents concerned about the changes in the upcoming year. I came to Boca to retire and relax in the Florida sunshine, says 10 year resident Mike Schwartz. With more developments, I am afraid of overcrowding, parking issues and traffic. There are currently two buildings under construction, one of which is located by Fifth Third Bank on East Palmetto, and the other on the corner of Federal Hwy and SE 1st Street. Assistant City Manager Mike Woika says that each development is required to build enough parking for the uses of the development, whether it be residential, commercial, office or a mixture of the three. All of the new development projects have enough parking for all of their uses. The assistant superintendent of construction, Casey Bruketa, said most of the men working on the building located on Federal and Palmetto, use a shuttle system to get to the site, which aims to minimize interfere with employee and resident parking downtown. However, several reports regarding renovation in this area have voiced complaints from residents and people who work in the local shops, about not having enough parking spaces due to the commotion caused by construction. In fact, Fifth Third Bank had to hire a valet parking company to manage traffic for its customers. Building manager Aaron Campbell, however, states that parking troubles were happening before construction started. According to Campbell, the structure on East Palmetto consists of about 208 condos for rent, and possibly some office space once finished. The KAST Construction project, which started about a year ago, was set to be completed by mid2014. However, it has been backed up, and as of now, has a finish date set for the summer of 2015. On the other hand, there has also been positive feedback from both residents and local employees. Local employee Ryan Hollander said, Im happy about the construction; I think its going to be great for the community. On the corner of SE 1st and Federal Hwy there is another massive structure under construction. This building is by Camden Apartment Homes and will open by this summer. The building consists of 8 stories with 261 rental units, and an adjacent parking garage. In addition to having a great location by Boca Raton Elementary school, as well as parking convenience, project superintendent Martin Miranda said, There will also be a public dog park on the West corner of the building, and that is our gift to the city. When asked about the construction and congestion happening in downtown Boca, local shop owner Charlotte Robinson said, I am very happy about it; building is progress and progress is the future.And in the near future, the Tribune readers will be able to stay on top of all the developments of downtown Boca, as we continue this series.

4 -Edition 169 January 17, through January 23, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comCommunity News COMMUNITY NEWS By Nicholas Messina The Association of Fundraising Professionals (www.afpbroward. org) held a meeting discussing the benefits of Creating Lasting Corporate Partnerships. The seminar was held at the beautiful Timpano Italian Chophouse in Ft. Lauderdale where many Development Directors and attended. The event discussed the benefits of big picture thinking and communication for nonprofits such as creating a compelling and unique selling proposition that appeals to businesses and corporate sponsors. To enhance the meeting, Boca Raton resident and business owner, Jon Sahn, President of Ascendant Planned Giving ( www. ) and Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy, as well as Avrum Lapin of the EHL Consulting Group ( www. ), were guest speakers. Ascendant Planned Giving and EHL Consulting are committed to helping nonprofits understand the most effective ways to raise money, develop leaders and create relationships. Amongst the guests was Development Director for the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, Nathalie Sloane. Multiple Sclerosis Foundation ( is a nationally recognized 501(c)3 charity, whose mission is to provide nationally accessible programs and support services to those persons affected by MS to help them maintain their health, safety, self-sufficiency, and personal well-being; and to heighten public awareness of multiple sclerosis in order to elicit financial support for the MSFs programs and services and promote understanding for those diagnosed with the illness.

For information to get involved, Sahn can be reached at 1-888-885-0447 Ext 1Boca Raton Non-Prot Expert Invited to Speak By Olivia CorioLynn Universitys StudentAthlete Advisory Committee hosted its annual Senior Citizen Prom at Stratford Court Senior Living Community on Friday, January 10, in conjunction with the Universitys Knights Unite Day of Caring. This years theme was the Rock n Roll era if the 1950s, which many of the residents enjoyed recalling their earlier years with the music, decorations and party favors. At the end of the night, the student-athletes selected four residents, two kings and two queens, which were awarded crowns and had the opportunity to dance with whoever they chose for the final dance. For this annual event, the students always work hard to make sure that it is better than the year before and they continually deliver a night to remember for the residents, said Assistant Athletic Director and S.A.A.C. advisor Sara Quatrocky. As an administrator, it is amazing to see the two groups of young and old blend and truly create bonds with one another. Like always, I am very proud of our students. It was hard to out-due last years prom that was sweetheart themed and had over 100 attendees but this years S.A.A.C. members made it happen. The night started slow but once the music picked up there wasnt any more room on the dance floor. The DJ, who donned a sparkly glove for all Michael Jackson songs, played a variety of tunes to keep the party going. Age did not matter as the different generations danced to everything from Frank Sinatra to Robin Thicke. This was a night to remember as the elderly folks were reminiscing back to their high school days. When they were singing and dancing to the music you could just see the smiles of memories, said S.A.A.C. President Andrew Melchor. It is great that S.A.A.C. takes part in events like these. This was Melchors second year attending the senior citizen prom. He joined S.A.A.C. last year when he became a member of the baseball team and has quickly become a strong leader for the organization. I really love going to Stratford Court and spending time with the elderly and hearing stories from when they were our age, said Tylar Tracy, a member of the womens basketball team. She later added, It was great seeing a smile on their faces as we took them back 60 years. Each January, Lynn University hosts a Knights Unite Day of Caring in an effort to honor the lives of the four students and two faculty members that lost their lives in the devastating Haiti Earthquake in 2010 while on a Journey of Hope during Lynns J-Term. This is the second year in a row S.A.A.C. moved its annual event to January to coincide with the Universitys day of community service. S.A.A.C. Hosts Successful Senior Citizen Prom

Edition 1697for news 24/7 go to January 17, through January 23, 2014By Quezia Salgado The Shoe Industry is made up of hundreds of manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers. Among them, BBC International stands out as a prominent footwear sourcing agent, representing the largest providers and specialty brands in the world, for more than 30 years. This long history of success is undoubtedly due to the hard work and efforts of BBCs incredible team, but none of it would have been possible without the boldness of its CEO and founder Robert B. Campbell. On a recent interview with Mr. Campbell, the Boca Tribune was able to find out a bit more about this incredible man, who has made such a difference in the community. As a child, growing up in Pittsburgh with his mother and three sisters, the idea of owning a multi-million dollar company, was far from Roberts mind. For six years, they lived in the attic of his grandmothers house, while his mother worked at his grandpas bakery the same bakery where Robert started working at the age of 9. My mother did nothing but work hard; she was amazing and taught us all about respect and ethics, and raised us in a good Christian family. Despite their humble beginnings, Robert says his family never knew the word poor; they never thought of themselves as poor, We always knew we were a lucky and happy family. After his mother remarried, Robert and his family moved to Detroit when he was 15 years old. There Mr. Campbell attended Cass Tech High School, which was rated the countrys #1 tech school at the time. At Cass Tech, Robert was involved with music and athletics, playing in the concert band and football team. During his junior year he started working part-time at a local Kinney Shoe store, where his career started. Robert made $35 that first week, but his true goal was to make $100, I never had a goal about being rich because I thought I was rich; making $100 a week at 16 years old, I thought that was the greatest thing in the world. Robert was quickly promoted to store manager, and later regional buyer and started traveling all over the States doing special buys for Kinney. By 1963 Bob became a buyer for F.W. Woolworth, which was Kinneys parent company at the time; there he worked for 9 years, traveling the world as the Developing Director of Footwear. The bureaucracy of big companies became too stressful for Robert, so in 1975 he founded BBC International. He started by himself, with only one secretary, and a few good people who were a great help in encouraging Bob, and are considered mentors to him. One of those was Cam Anderson founder of Footlocker I worked directly with him in Chicago and every time I needed help with anything he was there for me. Another one of Bobs mentors was Harvey Levy, from Pagoda International, he was my competitor, but he said: If you need any help, let me know. Although Robert never had a life plan he always knew that if he focused on something and worked hard at it, he would be successful: My only ambition was to work hard, get ahead, and I knew it would pay off; I just always felt confident about that; I was never afraid of failure. This same confidence is what makes Mr. Campbell such an important part of the Boca community. For many years, he has been involved in several charities and organizations, among which is the Boca Historical Society and Museum the official organizer of the Bacchanal Wine & Food Festival. Robert has attended the festival every year since its inception, 12 years ago, and for 2014 he was named Honorary Chair of the event, I think the Bacchanal does fabulous things for the town, and what I like most is that its a local event, it stays within the community. Those interested in attending the Bacchanal have to go through the Boca Historical Society to purchase tickets, and should hurry because this years promises to be one for the memories. With such a record of achievements, not to mention all the awards received for his charity contributions, Robert Campbells example is one worth imitating. From a young kid working at a bakery, to multi-millionaire business owner, Roberts life is a demonstration of what someone can accomplish if they work hard and remain humble and grateful. His advice to young entrepreneurs is simply: Work hard, have a goal, and dont complain! At 76 years old, Mr. Campbells energy and passion for his work remain unchanged; he is undoubtedly a living legend, whose legacy will live on for years to come.

8 -Edition 169 January 17, through January 23, 2014 EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen EDITORIALS/LETTERSThe Boca Raton TribuneFounded January 15, 2010 Publisher address. to the editor.Letter Guidelines Letters to the Editor Happy New Year! As I pen this column, there are so many things that I am happy about. Top of my list, I am happy for the opportunity to have this forum to communicate with you another year. The beginning of the year is a time of reflection. We bemoan the failures of the past year and vow to make resolutions to improve or not to repeat our mistakes. However, we should set resolutions we can keep. Studies show that only 8 percent of New Years resolutions are kept. Lets face it, on New Years Eve you resolve to make a change. But within a month, youre back to your normal patterns. How come? Too many of us make resolutions that lack resolve. Studies also show it takes about 30 days to make or break a habit. So, by directing my energy on smaller and more manageable lifestyle changes, I and most of us will be more likely to dramatically change our lives in a year. I tend to lean toward monthly goals. I promise to be a bit more disciplined starting this month. I will make a list of things I want to work on for the next 30 days. My goals this year range from writing an additional column each week to ensuring that I continue to promote the good work Pine Grove Elementary School in Delray Beach. As we think about drafting our resolutions or better yet, plans, for the New Year, its important to observe and reflect on model examples of organizations that have and continue to follow the resolutions or commitments they have made. Our local public schools are great examples of public service organizations that establish and keep key commitments to the constituents they serve: our amazing students and their families. These plans become key organizational values that are deeply embedded in our beliefs, culture and why teaching is a vocation or calling and not just a job. As many of you know, I am not one who makes New Years resolutions. However, since I did not achieve all my resolutions, ooops, plans from last year, there are a few Id like to continue this year: For starters, I wish we all will set resolutions we can keep to improve ourselves, our lives and the world around us. 1. Get Out of Debt. I will strive to spend less than I earn. 2. Learn Something New. I will attempt to learn to fix my own computer, thus making my right hand IT friend happy. 3. Get Organized. When it comes to my house, less is more. I will not hesitate to invite someone over on a whim, and I can find my stapler when I need it. 4. Help Others. A popular, non-selfish New Years resolution, volunteerism can take many forms. The next three are my wish list, but I wish friend that you will make them your resolutions. 5. I wish Democrats and Republicans can finally realize that our suffering country is much more important than their petty squabbles, private perks, or corporate backers. 6. I wish Congress would make unemployment a priority. 7. I wish the ongoing conflicts around the world will finally come to peaceful conclusions. 8. And finally, I will strive to ensure you have a good dosage of conversational topic each week. Now having heard that, I welcome your feedback.Are you still keeping your New Year Resolutions?

Edition 1699for news 24/7 go to January 17, through January 23, 2014 EDITORIALS & LETTERS By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.POSITIVE LIVING world, having received his education in four of them. When he resided in southern California, he wrote a weekly column for the daily Anaheim Bulletin, which was carried for about six years, until he moved to south Florida. Stop Accusing Anybody Else! bocaratontribune.comI have repeatedly affirmed, in these pages, and elsewhere, that in this world there is no one who is perfect, nor capable of reaching perfection in anything while on earth. Yet, such truth doesnt seem to be sufficiently understood by certain people. People who really feel adequate and happy within themselves declared a contemporary author, have no need to push other people around or to be critical of them. In fact, the secure persons are not the ones who do the latter part of the sentence above; it is the frustrated, the insecure, the trouble-makers who are more prone to promote destructive criticism! Several people can accurately recognize a great deal that occurs in the world as undesirable, even quite bad, though they fail to recognize that they, themselves, are at least partially responsible for much of that. Its not fair nor proper to attribute every wrong only to other people! The reality is that most often, accused persons have nothing specifically to do with that, even though every single mortal shall consistently make his and her mistakes as long as life lasts. Blame is never transferable; each individual must be fully responsible for ones personal flaws and mistakes, not for those of others! People need to understand that shifting blame to someone else will not solve the problem at hand, nor exonerate the accuser from ultimate responsibility. One can never elevate self at the expense of an innocent victim; truth always prevails! Quite often, persons who think of themselves as incapable of doing anything wrong, even slightly, are more often the ones on whom ultimate blame shall repose on a variety of situations and interactions. A holier-than-thou posture provides no sanction, nor safety to actions done by the one who operates that way, nor guarantees that everything is fully acceptable! An unfortunate problem is that some people are too proud and arrogant in never admitting even the possibility of committing mistakes. Yet, whatever edifice theyve erected in the sand will most assuredly crumble completely at some point! Learn to do what is expected of you; do it with excellence and zeal, in as timely a manner as you can. If you concentrate on your personal duties and the good quality you desire to exhibit, you can refrain from hunting for faults that others may have committed. After all, its none of your business anyway!Practicing ones faith in the pragmatic, bottom-line business and professional world, where seeing is believing, is difficult enough. Faith is especially hard to come by during times of economic adversity. A recent mortgage fraud case reminded me of this truth. The borrowers business grew rapidly by purchasing houses at below market prices and rehabbing them, making them more attractive to potential buyers. The business owners would leverage as much debt as possible, borrowing large amounts of money to acquire as many lowcost houses as the bank allowed. Eventually, however, mistakes were made. The borrower made poor decisions on some properties; reconstruction work was slowed on others, and the company bought houses much faster than it could sell them. As a result, a number of the properties remained unsold, consuming much of the borrowers available cash resources. Eventually the borrowers had an important decision to make: Do we admit our problem and accept the consequences, or do we lie to the lender and use their money on other projects? Unfortunately, fear overcame their conscience and faith, leading the company into fraud and ultimately, criminal charges. Faith, in all likelihood, was violated in two ways in this case. First, the borrower proceeded more aggressively than the unstable real estate market warranted, even with the devalued status of properties that were purchased. Most likely, the borrowers did not seriously consult God for guidance about whether to proceed when the growing risk became evident. Second, the borrower lacked the faith to trust God with the outcome of being straight-forward with the bank about the increasing debt load. Instead, the owners of the company chose to lie and presume they could wriggle their way out of debt by spending more. (Does that scenario sound at all familiar?) They might have avoided their fraud and the criminal consequences if they had heeded the promise of Psalm 23:4, which offers the assurance that God can be trusted when it says, Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me. This verse and the entire psalm were written by a shepherd faced with the daunting task of guiding his sheep through dark, threatening passages where the animals might encounter predators of various kinds. Operating a real estate business is very different from shepherding sheep, but the principle remains the same: Followers of Jesus need to trust their Lord in times of uncertainty and even danger. Another passage, Philippians 4:6-7, offers a similar promise: Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

10 -Edition 169 January 17, through January 23, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comCOMMUNITY NEWS Techniques of how college students study for exams has changed dramatically over the past decade. Faster computers, smart phones, e-books and cloud services have all aided students in their studying endeavors, but a new method has arisen. Study Buddy Today (www.StudyBuddyToday. com), a combination of social networking and e-learning, has connected students at Florida universities in a whole new way, allowing them to interact with fellow students and tutors independent of their colleges. Unlike general social media sites, this is purely educational, enabling students to host and attend study groups set up on the website by their peers, while still being notified about student activities across each students campus. Gone are the days of struggling to gather students together to study in a crowded area, with Study Buddy Today study groups, tutoring appointments, and project teams can meet to accomplish work with equal productivity from the comfort of a UCF graduate, founded the company in 2011, launched the website in 2012, and since then has spread to colleges throughout the entire state including: Florida Atlantic University, Florida State University, University of Florida, University of Central Florida, University of South Florida, Florida International University, and Broward College. As a college student, I usually studied in groups, but at a late hour there was no way to get the group together. So I thought there has to be an easier way virtually. So I created Study Buddy Today, At no charge to students, Study Buddy Today provides a number of advantages to both the student and tutors, such as video chats, file-sharing, and an easy to organize calendar. The site offers an extensive library where users can access e-books, study guides, and other educational content to help students with their academic work load. These features permit the user to operate from their dormitory, apartment, house or any type of studying facility.

Edition 16911for news 24/7 go to January 17, through January 23, 2014Municipal NewsThe Boca Raton Tribune Two men arrested for stealing storm shuttersOn Thursday, January 9 at about 12:20 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a theft of storm shutters from a residence in the 3800 block of NW 4th Court. A neighbor told police she noticed a white pickup truck going slowly down NW 4th Court, turn down NW 3rd Court, where it stopped several times. As the witness watched, two males got out of the truck and walked up to a house and removed several hurricane shutters that were leaning against the house. As the neighbor called police to report the crime, the suspects put the aluminum shutters in the back of their truck and drove off. Responding officers located the vehicle about a mile away and stopped it. Officers made contact with the driver, Kenneth Hawkins, and passenger, Andrew Rozier. Both suspects told officers they were in Boca Raton to collect scrap from local businesses. They added that they were driving through the residential area when they saw the shutters leaning against a home so they decided to take them. The witness identified the two suspects as the men she observed taking the shutters. Officers arrested and charged both with burglary to a residence, which includes offenses committed in the area immediately around the home. Boca Raton, FL On Thursday, January 9 at about 1:30 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a theft of jewelry from St. Moritz Jewelers, 21310 St. Andrews Boulevard. The store sales clerk told officers she was assisting another customer when she buzzed in a male at the door. The male told the clerk he was looking for an engagement ring and a tennis bracelet. The clerk showed the suspect one bracelet and he said he wanted to look at wedding rings. They went to another case and she showed him a ring. The suspect tried on the ring then handed it back to the clerk. The suspect took one piece from the clerks hand and after a brief pause he picked up a piece from the counter and ran out the door. The suspect fled north then ran east to the rear of the plaza. The jewelry was valued at over $8,000. The clerk was not injured. If anyone knows the suspect or has information about this crime, they are asked to call Detective James Giumenta at (561) 3381303 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.Man steals jewelry from St. Moritz Jewelers West Boca McDonalds manager accused of theftBy CRA News ServiceThe general manager of a West Boca McDonalds was arrested and charged after she was accused of stealing nearly $5,000 from secured deposits. Authorities arrested Nadia AbiRoud Hende, 36, of Coconut Creek, on Jan. 6 on charges of grand theft and organized scheme to defraud. She was released hours later on $9,000 bail. Deputies were called to the restaurant at State Road 7 and Glades Road on Dec. 13 after its director of operations reported that a deposit of $4,887.50 was unaccounted for, according to the arrest report from the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office. The deposit was supposed to have been made Dec. 5. However, records from Garda, the company scheduled to collect the deposit, showed that no pickup was made that day. Abi-Roud Hende had access to the deposit on that date, the deputy wrote. The investigation revealed that she routinely took unknown amounts of money from secured deposits and repaid those amounts later. By restoring the money, it would appear the money she had taken was never missing, The investigator said Abi-Roud Hende made rolling deposits, or took unknown portions of deposits and then added money to future deposits to make it appear as if money wasnt missing, according to the report. The rolling deposits typically were held for one to three weeks. After the deposits were finally made, the amounts would then match McDonalds internal reports. A McDonalds executive told a sheriffs detective that the money is usually secured in a safe, then picked up by Garda, an armored truck service. But the detective talked with a Garda representative who said there was no pickup made on Dec. 5. As of Jan. 6, that money was still missing. Security footage shows Abi-Roud Hende as the only general manager dealing with the deposit, according to the report.

A Funny, Topical Hummingbird Wars at Arts GarageENTERTAINMENTWhat if all the Skittles were RED?TONYS TIPS See page B2 See page B2


January 17, through January 23, B2 Edition 169 Section BTwo new shows stand in stark contrast this week in area theaters. Hummingbird Wars is onstage through Feb. 2 at the Arts Garage in Delray Beach. nd Street is running through Feb. 9 at the Wick Theatre (formerly Caldwell) in Boca Raton. The two productions could not be more different, but each is excellent in its own right. Hummingbird Wars is a premiere production of playwright Carter W. Lewiss latest work. Lewis is a prolific, rising playwright whose work has been produced at prestigious theaters across the country, including the now-defunct Florida Stage, whose artistic director Louis Tyrrell now heads the theater program at Arts Garage. Hummingbird Wars, directed by Tyrrells friend Greg Johnson of the Montana Repertory Theatre, is inspired by the ongoing war in Afghanistan and its aftermath. Todd Allen Durkin plays Warren, a decorated Afghan war hero who has returned to his suburban Minnesota family. Warrens family situation is as creaky and cracked as the foundation of their shoddy house. You could say Warren is suffering from post-war traumatic stress syndrome, as he has been home a full year yet remains in a fog of depression and apathy. His family is of scant comfort. Wife Mel (Jeni Hacker) between her job and various advocacy crusades, is hardly ever at home. Son Pete (Andrew Griner, Jr.), 15, is sullen and incommunicative, and inexplicably finds guns. Kate (Gretchen Porro)), 19 has come out as a lesbian, and wants her girlfriend Tracy (Joline Mujica) to come and live with her. Surprisingly Hummingbird Wars is quite funny, with Todd Allen Durkin basically playing a deadpan straight man to the nutty types around him. The play is quite short and performed without intermission, so if you dont like it, you wont have wasted much time. Tickets are $25-$35. Call 561450-6357. A Lavish, Lovely 42nd Street at Wick Theatre Pure joy: thats what the Wick Theatre production of nd Street is all about. Wick Theatre, successor to Caldwell, has pulled out the stops for this bright, beautiful, lavishlycostumed big tap dance musical, based on the much-loved 1933 movie, which in turn was based on a novel by Bradford Ropes, nd Street debuted in 1980 as the final effort by famed directorchorographer Gower Champion. The musical has enjoyed several revivals, but it has been several years since it has been seen in South Florida. nd Street is essentially a Broadway star-is-born fable, with a nave ingnue named Peggy Sawyer (the excellent Julie Kleiner) getting her one shot at stardom when a shows vain, egotistical star Dorothy Brock (Aaron Bower) suffers an accident the day before opening night. All of the characters are stereotypes, which is part of the shows raffish charm. There is the bombastic, dictatorial yet realist director Julian Marsh (Jim Ballard), the seen-it-all playwright and den mother Maggie Jones (Missy McArdle), the obsequious co-author of the fictional musical Pretty Lady, the friendly, supportive Anytime Annie (Alison McCartan), the rich gullible producer Abner Dillon (Alan Gerston) and the guileless juvenile male lead Billy Lawlor (Alex Jorth). Director Norb Joerder and choreographer Ron Hutchins have cast the show with an eye for dancers, for nd Street is nothing if not a tap-dancing extravaganza. It does not disappoint. Combine this with lovable tunes like the title song, Were in the Money, Shuffle Off to Buffalo and the Lullaby of Broadway and you have a show that is virtually impossible not to like. Top this off with the exquisite costumes from the Wick Museum and you have a theatrical treat that is downright intoxicating. Tickets are $58 and well worth it. Call 561-995-2333 or go to www. Entertainment Skip Sheffield A Funny, Topical Hummingbird Wars at Arts Garage Tonys Tips For Success What if all the Skittles were RED?Can you imagine a world with nothing but red Skittles? The variety of flavors and colors are what makes Skittles so good! Now imagine if we were all the same. Same hair, same eye color, same likes, same dislikes, how boring would that be. Imagine if you were competing for an event, but everyone was the same. There would be no winner...Just a tie! Being different is actually what is the Spice of Life! Take a minute to read this Poem by Robert Frost. THE ROAD NOT TAKEN by Robert Frost Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same, And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. In Frosts poem he talks discusses how he chose to be Different! He chose to go down the road that had not been traveled by the Majority of people. Its important to know that we are all individuals and as individuals we each have different Goals, Aspirations and Dreams. In order to be successful we have to break from the pack and follow our own course and journey down the road less traveled. This being understood, it is important to understand while we make our own choices in life and our own decisions about our future, so do those around us. Just like we must break out and travel down our own road, We must accept that our friends and neighbors will also choose their own path. We should not look down on them because they choose a different road, but praise them on their journey to success. That is what brings us close that is the Spice of Life. Knowing that we are all different and yet all here to support one another. Do you want to be in a bag full of red Skittles, or in a Bag full of Different color Skittles?

PAGE 15 Edition 169B3Section B January 17, through January 23, 2014 for news 24/7 go to Delray Beach roong company ned $154K in workers electrocutionBy CRA News ServiceA local commercial and residential roofing contractor is facing four federal safety violations and $154,000 in penalties in the electrocution of a worker last year, according to authorities. Tim Graboski Roofing Inc. of Delray Beach was slapped with two willful and two serious violations for exposing workers to falls and electrocution hazards at two different jobsites, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Tim Graboski Roofing has repeatedly failed to address the fall hazards associated with roofing work, said Condell Eastmond, OSHAs area director in Fort Lauderdale. The company needs to correct the pattern of exposing workers to falls and other workplace hazards immediately, which resulted in this tragic loss of life. The company did not immediately respond Friday (Jan. 3) to a request for comment. However, an OSHA spokesman said Tim Graboski Roofing had contested the citations and scheduled an informal conference. The case involved the death of Anthony Nunez, 21, of Boca Raton, who was attempting to reposition a metal extension ladder when it made contact with overhead electrical power lines on June 27, 2013, at a residential job site in Boca Raton, OSHA said. The two-story home was being re-roofed. The victim was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to local reports. A second inspection occurred on July 23, when OSHA authorities passed by a residential work site in Cooper City and observed workers exposed to fall hazards. The agency imposed two serious violations relating to the fatality. The contractor is accused of directing a worker to use a metal extension ladder to access a rooftop near highvoltage power lines that were not deenergized, grounded or guarded. The employer allowed the Nunez to use the ladder lacking nonconductive side rails near the lines, according to OSHA. Both serious violations carried a $7,000 fine. A serious violation occurs when there is substantial probability that death or serious physical harm could result from a hazard about which the employer knew or should have known. The willful citation on June 27 involved exposing workers to fall hazards of about 30 feet by not ensuring use of a fall-protection system. The alleged violation carries a fine of $70,000. The willful citation on July 23 involved workers engaged in residential construction up to 19 feet above ground without guardrail systems, a safety net system, a personal fall arrest system, or any alternative fall protection measure. The agency also imposed a $70,000 penalty for that citation. A willful violation is one committed with intentional, knowing or voluntary disregard for the laws requirements, or with plain indifference to worker safety and health. A review of OSHA records for 2013 found the company was fined $6,300 for a serious violation related to fall protection and a $9,000 violation for a repeat offense also related to fall protection in January. That case remains open, according to OSHA. In April 2013, Tim Graboski Roofing was also fined $2,100 for serious and $7,000 for repeat hazards related to fall protection. Those penalties were lowered to $1,960 and $3,500, respectively, through informal conferences. Delray Beach man, Wall Street exec killed in Boca crashBy Hugh MorleyA veteran financial executive, who rose from his roots in Bergen County, NJ, to a high-level career in equity sales and marketing, was remembered recently as generous and humble man with a love for motorcycles and sporty cars. Robert W. Norton, 61, of Delray Beach, was killed Dec. 31 in a motorcycle crash when he was thrown from his 2006 HarleyDavidson as it collided with a 2009 Mini Cooper that had turned into his lane in Boca Raton, according to a report by the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The crash is under investigation. Norton, who worked at a division of Shearson Lehman/American Express for 25 years, also had a home in Beach Haven, N.J. He graduated in 1970 from Bogota High School, where he was known for his athletic ability and concern for others. He was just a great gentleman, a good guy, said Roger Bayersdorfer, the interim principal at Mahwahs Betsy Ross Elementary school and a former superintendent in River Edge and Franklin Lakes, who was in the same class as Norton. You would never know that Bob was such a successful businessman, because he was humble, said Bayersdorfer, who kept in touch with Norton for years. William Pat Schuber, the former Bergen County executive who attended the high school at the same time as Norton, noted the entries in the Bogota High School yearbook proved prescient. It listed Norton as most popular in his class, and the most ambitious. A member of the bowling and cross country teams, Norton listed money among the things he liked. Norton received a bachelors degree in business from Montclair State University in 1974 and an MBA in marketing from Seton Hall University in 1977, according to his profile page on Owning and caring for Harleys, Camaros and Corvettes were a lifelong passion, according to his stepdaughter, Lauren Gray. He was meticulous in his attention to detail, said Gray, adding that he had a similar approach to his work. Norton joined Lehman Management, the investment division of Shearson Lehman/ American Express Inc., in 1984. At Ark Asset Management Co., which grew out of the Shearson unit, he rose to managing director and head of marketing during a 25-year career. Since 2009, Norton had been executive vice president and director of equity sales and marketing for Houston-based Smith Graham, working in New York City and Florida. The company had acquired assets from Ark in 2009, when Ark was on its way out of business, having been accused of fraud by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Rather than retire, Norton led a group of Ark executives who joined Smith Graham, so that his colleagues would not suffer from Arks failure, his wife, Karen Norton, said in an interview. He did it for his friends, she said. Ed and Carole Shanley, former Clifton residents who were Nortons neighbors in Beach Haven, said he was in the process of retiring, having sold a house in New Providence, and was splitting his time between Beach Haven sporadically working in New York and Florida. He was very friendly; very generous, said Edward Shanley, who said he and Norton co-owned a 25-foot boat that sank during superstorm Sandy. Carole Shanley said Norton had a Harley Davidson at each of his New Jersey and Florida homes, and was very safety conscious. He was preparing to take a trip to Costa Rica, where he went every year for a motorcycle-riding vacation with friends, she said. He loved motorcycles.

Sure, Im the guy, Bulin, 24, responded. When one of the men asked, Wheres my money? and Bulin said he didnt know what he was talking about, the suspects attacked him, police said. Wade grabbed Boulin, pushed him up against a Checkers sign and put him down on the ground, police said. Woodcock allegedly started punching and kicking Boulin. Spread your legs and show me your palms, the suspects ordered Boulin, police said. They were also allegedly tried to get Boulins hands behind his back, according to the report. Police arrived and found the victim on the ground. One of the suspects was on top of the victim while the other suspect stood by watching, the officer wrote. Several witnesses told police they saw Woodcock and Wade standing outside the restaurant talking then they began attacking the victim. The officer wrote that both men shouted they were the police and when one of the witnesses tried to intervene, Woodcock opened his wallet and pretended to show law enforcement identification. One witness told police he heard one of the men yelling, Delray police! Delray police! One of several witnesses also heard one of the men swearing and shouting at Boulin to hand over $40.

Edition 16919for news 24/7 go to January 17, through January 23, 2014 bocaratontribune.comBusinessThe Boca Raton Tribune By Gina Onori BOCA RATON, Fla.Two years ago Red Zone Pizza, located on Palmetto Park Road only seconds away from the beach, was opened by 48-year-old Kenny Fischer. Fischer came to Boca from New York City in 2002 with a background of entertainment and cabinet making yet no knowledge of the food industry. I saw an ad on craigslist that said beachside pizzeria, said Fischer. It looked like a good investment and I knew someone who was really good at cooking pizza so I brought him in and he helped me learn how to do it. According to Fischer it is everything he expected and more. The community by the beach is a lot of fun and I have become a really good pizza maker, something that I never did before. It is a new and exciting trade for me. Not only is the owner of Red Zone Pizza thrilled about the new restaurant, the customers are satisfied too. Red Zone is in a great location, said patron Angel Ameng. Youve got the beach right here, this is a good vibe, good music, and great pizza. The ambiance of the pizzeria radiates rock n roll, reggae, and funk music as guitars hang along the walls and a keyboard lies behind the counter. Speakers blare Bob Marley, Sublime, and other rock legends that set a chill atmosphere ideal for the beach. The goal of Red Zone was to bring music to the Boca City beach with live reggae and rock performances, turning the pizzeria into the hottest rock and roll place in town. Kenny has kept his word by including bands such as The Red Band to bring live performances into the restaurant. What is more, the pizza is phenomenal. It is astonishing that Fischer was taught by a friend a few years ago and is ever so talented. Our most popular item on the menu is white pizza with fresh tomato basil, tomato and ricotta cheese, said Fischer. It is the best anywhere. What Fischer does struggle with is keeping business booming on the rainy Florida days. Because Red Zone is extremely close and intermingled with the Boca Beach, Fischer strives to keep customers coming on these days. As for the future, in five years I see us being a prime spot fresh off of the beach, said Fischer.Red Zone Pizza Rocks Boca Raton White Lodging Services is pleased to announce the 149-room Hilton Garden Inn Boca Raton completed its lobby and guest space renovations on November 1, 2013.

You are purchasing a home. Its very important to know what you are spending your money on so to prepare a budget is very important. There is a difference with Making a Budget and Making Your Budget Work For You. First lets focus on developing making an effective budget and record-keeping system. These systems should be set in place before applying for a loan. You need to show that you and your family know how to manage money. This will protect you from making a major financial commitment that you either can or cannot afford. I know in the last column I stated the B word Budget. If you do not like the word Budget you can call it a spending plan or whatever you would like. Naming it helps encourage and master the technique which makes your money work for you. Just remember what it is and what it is supposed to do. Its a flexible plan to help you get the best possible outcome for your money and to reach your ultimate goal, buying a home. I like to keep things simple. My clients and I have used this 6-Step System when making a budget. Step 1: Set Your Goals: Whether is it to go on vacation, buying a home or car you must sit down and speak with your family in reference to what goals you are trying to obtain. Think about your goals in 2 different aspects: Short-term and Long-term Goals. Make sure you write them down. Step 2: Estimate Your Income: This is the foundation for a good budget. Take a look at your income from last year. What was it? What changes in income do you think you will incur for the next year? Once you have that down, lets go to Step 3. Step 3: Analyze Your Recent Spending: If you already keep a record of your expenses, take time to study and analyze it over the past year or the past few months and see where you stand. Are there things you can cut back on? For example, maybe you can eat at home more often instead of going out to dinner all the time. If you do not have a record, start writing down your expenditures and analyze it. A very wise and successful man once explained it like this: If you dont know where you are going, how do you expect to get there? Sit and write down what your trying to achieve, the end result (YOUR GOALS). Next, figure out where you currently stand (INCOME/LIFE/ ANALYZE) and then plan out the road map to get there (PLAN/ CREATE). Then put that plan into action. You can plan all day long but without the action in the right direction it is very unlikely you will get there. The point of making the Budget is to send you in the right direction. Next week we will focus on Steps 4 thru 6 which incorporates Making Your Budget Work For You. Stay tunedUsing Your Money Wisely to Purchase a Home: Part 1Focus on communities in Boca Raton.

Edition 16923for news 24/7 go to January 17, through January 23, 2014 ColumnistsThe Boca Raton Tribune Michael 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 A Better Solution Than Butting HeadsFAITHBy Robert J. Tamasy DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLEBy Mike Gora Some time ago, we looked at consequences of submitting to the insistent demands of our egos, doing whatever is necessary to ensure getting what we desire. Recently I came across an illustration from nature that demonstrates the virtues of very different behavior. The story comes from Ulrich Zwingli, a leader of the Protestant Reformation in Switzerland in the early 1500s. He and Martin Luther, the catalyst for the Reformation, were locked in a serious dispute, and Zwingli was at a loss in trying to resolve the conflict. He found the solution one morning while gazing at the side of a mountain. He observed two goats approaching each other on a narrow path on the mountainside, one going up and the other going down. Upon seeing one another they stopped, then lowered their heads. It appeared they were about to charge each other. However, instead of butting heads, the goat ascending the mountain lay down on the path. The descending goat was able to step over the others back, and the animals were able to proceed unimpeded. If the goats had chosen to butt heads, one may have prevailed. But the result might also have been disastrous for both. So one bowed before the other, in effect humbling itself, which eventually enabled it to advance higher. How often do we see instances in the business and professional world of two or more people fixed on their goals and objectives, determined to not let anything stand in their way? When they do encounter opposition, they insist on butting heads, battling to a bitter and sometimes bloody conclusion. But consider the lesson Zwingli learned from the goats. One of them deferred briefly to the other, leading to a win-win outcome. Would not this approach have merit for resolving workplace conflicts? This principle finds ample support in the Bible. Here are some of the things it has to say: Go lower to get higher. Being willing to defer to the interests of another should not be onesided. Both benefit when they are willing to submit or be subject to one another.Just as a submarine goes under water, submitting or being subject to others means intentionally putting oneself under another.Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ (Ephesians 5:21). Superiors and subordinates should yield to one another. The customary business model is for superiors to exert their authority over those that report to them, but the best leaders are ones having the interests of their employees at heart. Slaves (employees), obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. And masters (superiors), treat your slaves (employees) in the same way. Do not threaten them, since you know that he who is both their Master and yours is in heaven (Ephesians 6:5-9). Work with an attitude of humility toward coworkers and to God. Rather than demanding your desires, relating humbly toward others can win their good favor and support. Be submissive to those who are olderclothe yourselves with humility toward one another (1 Peter 5:5-6). God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. Submit yourselves, then, to God (James 4:6-7).Robert J. Tamasy is vice president of communications for Leaders Legacy, Inc., a non-profit organization based in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. A veteran journalist, he has written Tufting Legacies (iUniverse); Business At Its Best: Timeless Wisdom from Proverbs for Todays Workplace (River City Press); and has coauthored with David A. Stoddard, The Heart of Mentoring (NavPress). For more information, see or his blogs, and www. No Place Like HomeQ: We have twin girls. We lived in another state until the girls were in second grade. We then moved to Pompano, so that I could take a job offer, a significant advancement in my career. My, wife, who had been teaching elementary school in our old home state, looked into public elementary school education in our neighborhood. She was not happy about what he found. We could not afford a private school. She suggested home schooling the children. I was against it, and told her so. I didnt want the girls to grow up and be educated without having the benefit of having to deal with other children of the same age, and teachers who were not their parents. We compromised. We agreed that the girls could be home schooled, through fifth grade, but would go to a public middle school, and high school when the time came. Our agreement was not written. Our daughters have finished about one half of fifth grade. My wife and I are going through a divorce, in which I filed the petition. She has, conveniently forgotten our verbal agreement, and insists that she be allowed to continue home schooling, at least through middle school, and, perhaps, high school, which I do not want her to do. Can the judge in our divorce case address this issue? A: Your childrens best interests must be taken into consideration by the judge. That consideration will, if properly raised by the pleadings, include the school issues. If your petition for dissolution of your marriage does not specifically raise this issue, your lawyer should file an amended petition. If your petition did not raise the issue but your wifes counter-petition did, that would be sufficient once you denied her request in your answer to her counter-petition. Since you have agreed to home school through fifth grade, the judge will have time to decide what happens next, before your girls are ready to enter middle school, next fall. The judge will have two ways to resolve the conflict. Your attorney and your wifes counsel will have to be prepared to put on a case that addresses either of the judges choices. The judge can either make a choice between the public middle school and home schooling based upon an evaluation of the success of the home schooling verses the quality of the middle school available in your neighborhood. The State of Florida grades the schools through the FCAT process, which is currently being revised. Testing is available for children being home schooled, privately. The FCAT process might be available through the state, but you will need to check on that. If the judge goes in that direction he, or she, may want the decision to cover high school as well, unless you and your wife can agree on that issue in advance. The judge is going to look for a way to end the case that will not bring it back into court after three years, for a high school determination. The second alternative available to the judge would be to delegate to one of you, total control over all educational matters, even though you will have shared parental responsibility on other matters. Your or your wife would, under such a final judgment, not be required to consult or agree with the other on any further school decisions. There is no way to accurately predict which method the judge will use. Your wife may have an edge, as a schoolteacher. However, if progress tests show that your children under perform public school children in progress tests, you may be the parent selected to make the decisions. Perhaps it would be wise to have private and/or public testing, or both given to you daughters, as soon as possible, so that this issue can be intelligently litigated and discussed when you sit down with your attorneys and a mediator.

28 -Edition 169 January 17, through January 23, 2014 www.bocaratontribune.comSportsThe Boca Raton Tribune By: Pedro HeizerWhen the Fort Lauderdale Strikers made international headlines last week because of their unorthodox trade with the San Antonio Scorpions for Best XI midfielder Walter Restrepo, the soccer community went on frenzy. How could a team trade one of their best players for hotel rooms and limousine service? Restrepo himself was taken away by the trade but not surprised. In an exclusive with 90 Minutes Strong, Restrepo revealed he had been looking for a trade out of Fort Lauderdale for the past two years. For two years I have been telling management about my intentions of leaving, said Restrepo. I wasnt surprised with the trade, I thought it was a very creative way of getting me to San Antonio. They knew Walter was not going to be a part of their future plans, said a source close to the organization. So Instead of just losing him and not getting anything in return they ended up making a smart deal and getting something out of it. What all these reports are failing to mentioned is that this season Restrepo did no preform well at all, continued the source. He only scored twice, and had zero assists. Not only that, but he was not a favorite in the lockeroom and even had a heated altercation with a teammate. From the outside looking in, a trade that involves a player and hotel stays doesnt sound very smart, in fact it sounds comical. However, in the world of the North American Soccer League, a league in which players do not stay with the same team for a long amount of time, the trade was very successful. With only about four players under contract the Scorpions didnt have any trading chips, however, they wanted Walter, added the source. One of the things that has been failed to be noticed it that the Strikers and the Scorpions were in talks last season on a possible trade that would have sent Restrepo to San Antonio. However, the clubs could not get a deal done and the trade fell through. This time around, with the Scorpions with a second shot at getting the man they really wanted, San Antonio pulled out all the stops to make sure he [Restrepo] didnt slip from their hands again. When you stop and think about the trade in context, the source continued. It wasnt a bad deal at all. The Strikers received something in return for a player, that if they did not pick up the option, would have been lost and the club would not gotten anything in return. Restrepo, who broke into the scene with the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 2011 after the club signed him midway through the season, had a very successful campaign. Restrepo got a call for a tryout with the Chicago Fire of Major League Soccer. Restrepo ultimately did not make the Fire roster and so returned to Fort Lauderdale. In 2012, Restrepo played a central role for in the Strikers attack throughout the season collecting seven goals and nine assists in all competitions, with his eight assists in the regular season tied for first in the NASL. Restrepos season was cut short when he suffered a knee injury during training forcing him to miss the final seven games of 2012. For his stellar season, Restrepo was one of three unanimous selections to the 2012 NASL Best XI. According to some sources, Restrepo essentially felt he was better then the rest of the team and essentially this could have possibly been the beginning of Restrepos fall from grace within the Strikers organization, a topic that Restrepo doesnt believe in. I never had any issues with Coach Kronsteiner, says Restrepo. He is a very experienced coach and I have nothing but the upmost respect for him. Despite all the talk, Restrepo is looking forward to his new opportunity with the San Antonio Scorpions, Im very happy to begin the new season with a new team, said Restrepo. They [Scorpions] have big plans for me and the rest of the entire roster, and that makes me excited. Walter Restrepo Looks Ahead to Opportunity with ScorpionsFlorida Atlantic University senior Latavia Dempsey shot a phenomenal six 3-pointers in the first half to push the FAU women's basketball team to a 97-69 win over Conference USA rival Rice on Saturday. FAU (11-4, 1-1 C-USA) tied a school record with 14 made 3-pointers in the game and shot 11-of-15 from beyond the arc in the first half. Coming into the contest, Rice (8-7, 1-1 C-USA) led the conference in 3-point defense, allowing opponents to shoot just 25.9% beyond the arc. Dempsey ended the night with a career-high 28 points and an FAU Arena record seven 3-pointers. The senior shot 9-of-11 from the field in the first half and scored 18 points before missing a shot. Her performance is the best for an FAU player this season and the best since Breana Turner scored 32 points against Louisiana-Monroe on Jan. 30, 2013. FAU held a 66-28 advantage at the half in the first meeting between the two programs. Senior Shanequa Schrouder turned in her second double-double of the season with 11 points and 12 rebounds, leading FAU to a rebounding advantage of 34-32 over Rice (5-7, 1-1 C-USA). Kimberly Smith had another solid outing, scoring 15 points while grabbing six boards and dishing out four assists. Freshman Shaneese Bailey posted 11 points and six rebounds while fellow freshman Kat Wright also scored 11. Latavia Dempsey has Career Game as FAU Womens Defeats RiceThe Fort Lauderdale Strikers announced today that forwards David Foley and Yaikel Prez have re-signed with the club for the 2014 North American Soccer League (NASL) season. As per club policy, the terms of the deals were not disclosed. David Foley, 26, was one of the highest-profile signings made by the Strikers ahead of the 2013 Spring season. The Englishman joined the club after three seasons with the Puerto Rico Islanders, helping that club to a USSF D2 Pro League title in 2010 and earning a place on the NASL Best XI team the following season. The high hopes for Foley were justified with a goal in his Strikers debut in the season opener against FC Edmonton at Lockhart Stadium. In his fifth appearance of the season, Foley scored the winning goal against Minnesota United FC on May 11 before suffering an injury that kept him sidelined for the remainder of the season. "We're looking forward to having a healthy David Foley make a substantial contribution to our team this year, said Managing Director Tim Robbie. He is a proven veteran who is always dangerous with his tremendous skill and pace." Yaikel Prez, 28, tallied three goals and an assist in 10 appearances with the Strikers in the 2013 Fall season. The former Cuban national team forward joined the club on August 13, 2013 after spending time in El Salvador with guila and Alianza. "Yaikel Prez is a proven goal scorer who is poised to become one of the league's top scorers, said Robbie.We expect him to play a vital role on our team this year." Foley and Prez join Mark Anderson, Ivn Guerrero, Carlos Salazar and homegrown talents Gonzalo De Mujica, Manny Gonzalez, Aly Hassan, and Darnell King on the list of players that have already resigned for the upcoming season.More player signings are expected to be announced in the coming weeks as the Strikers build toward the 2014 season.Strikers Resign Two Ahead of 2014 NASL Season Photo by: Rosa Cavalcanti

Lynn kept on pace with Florida Southern for the majority of the first half. The lead changed eight times 11 times in the first half with Lynn taking its largest lead of three with 13:05 remaining in the half. The Mocs finished the half on a 14-5 run to lead 46-36 at the half. The Fighting Knights shot 50 percent from the field while holding the Florida Southern to 48.6 percent from the field.

The Medal of Honor Game is a collegiate All-Star event held on the Campus of the Citadel.

Her squad ranks among the nation's leaders in turnover margin, steals per game and scoring offense. "I appreciate all the support we have received from Pat Chun, Melissa Dawson and the entire athletic department," Lewis-Jay said.FAU Extends Womens Basketball Coach Kellie Lewis-Jay Landers Drops 28 Points in Mens Basketball Loss to No. 4 Florida SouthernA career-high 19 points from Marquan Botley and Justin Raffingtons fourth straight doubledouble helped the Florida Atlantic University mens basketball team rally to defeat Rice 73-68 on Saturday. The game was tied 7-7 early in the first half when Rice (5-10, 0-2 C-USA) when on a 19-4 run to take a 26-11 lead. FAU (5-11, 1-1 C-USA) clawed its way back into striking distance, and went into the halftime break trailing just 30-25. Pablo Bertone scored the first five points of the second half to tie the game. For the next several minutes, the two teams exchanged baskets, neither side taking a lead larger than three points. Rice shot 48 percent from the floor in the first half, but FAU held their opponents to only one field goal during a stretch of more than 10 minutes in the second stanza. By the time the drought ended, FAU had built a nine-point lead with less than six minutes to go. It was Texas version of the Owls turn to fight their way back into contention. Keith Washington hit a layup to cut FAUs lead to one, 65-64 at the 2:41 mark. Bertone nailed a pair of free throws, but Sean Obis putback cut the margin back down to a single point. Botley and DAndre Johnson each split a pair of free throws to push the lead back to three. Max Guercy drew a foul and made a pair from the charity stripe, but Johnson matched him on the other end to keep FAUs lead at three. Rice had the ball and a chance to tie the game with 19 seconds left, but FAUs defensive pressure forced a turnover. Jackson Trapp hit two free throws to provide the final margin.
