Boca Raton Woman Named Mother of the Year for Mentorship Role By Fred Hamilton

The family of Sidney and Ruth Heimberg recently presented a gift of $20,000 to the Boca Raton Public Library (BRPL). In recognition of the Heimberg family gift, the City of Boca Raton announces the naming of the Sidney and Ruth Heimberg Business Meeting Room at the new Downtown Library. In announcing his family’s gift, Fred Heimberg stated, “My parents loved reading and attending adult education programs. My brother Paul and I decided to make donations to libraries in Boston and Boca Raton in their memory.” The Sidney and Ruth Heimberg Business Meeting Room is designed specifically for executive meetings of up to 10 participants. Amenities include a conference table with technology ports and connections,

When Rachel VanNess talks about her dogs, rabbits and “her kids” one can hear, in her voice, the passion and pride she has for them. What they don’t know is that she never gave birth to Emmanuel or Prenell. “They’re all my kids,” said VanNess, a Delray Beach police officer who has rescued some of the animals and has been mentoring the two young men for several years. “It just makes me happy,” she said of her penchant for helping others. “It may sound corny but that’s what I was supposed to do.” The Boca Raton resident’s passion for giving of herself unselfishly to improve the lives of area youth, resulted in her being recognized recently as one of KOP’s 2013

Boca Raton’s Beautification Committee Host’s its’ 29th Annual Landscape Excellence Awards By Samantha Mellman For 30 years the Boca Raton Beautification Committee has helped our community blossom into the beautiful destination it is today. On May 15th the committee hosted its’ annual Landscape Excellence Awards at the Boca City Council. Chairman of the Landscape Excellence Awards Barbara Benefield, and 12 other committee members gave six awards one for each category to businesses and neighborhoods. To qualify for an award the areas must be visible from city streets and meet standards of excellent landscaping. Richard Randall, a 14 year committee member explains how recipients are selected, “I get calls throughout the year, different members drive around and see things, make notes of it, then they’ll call me and I put it on a list,” he said, “ I have a regular route that I drive when we start to think about this and we re-visit everything we can and I bring back pictures.” As committee members go through these lists of pictures they narrow down their selections until they decide on the final nominees. Mayor Susan Whelchel had the honor of awarding each nominee in this year’s ceremony by category: • Large Commercial: Northern Trust Bank • Small Commercial: Stitch

Craft • Mixed Use: 200 East Condominiums • Industrial: Multi Image Group • High Density Residential Multi Family: Sea Ranch Club of Boca • Low Density Residential Gated: Santa Barbara Second time winner Johann Leigh is the landscape chair and board of directors member at the Sea Ranch Club of Boca located on Ocean Boulevard by Spanish River Beach. This residential area is comprised of 37 acres of land that includes 4 large towers, a marina, and town homes. “It was quite an honor to get this, we spend a lot of money and a lot of time to maintain the property,” said Leigh. Don Lamm, a 20-year resident of the Santa Barbara neighborhood accepted the award on his community’s behalf. “Originally their were 20 people on this landscape committee and they couldn’t get anything right, it was just horrible,” he said, “I volunteered and after my first project I said fire me if you don’t like it. Plus 20 years later I’m the only one that does it. I design it, I install it, and I spend thousands of hours in nurseries to pick out plant material and its just a love, its just something that turned out quite well.” When Benefield moved from Lake

Worth to Boca Raton her mother asked her why she didn’t buy a house in Lake Worth when she retired, “She came down to Boca to visit me and she said, “I see why” it’s a beautiful city. Even the side roads and mediums are nicely landscaped.” Every year since 1980 Boca Raton has received the Tree City U.S.A. award that commends cities that follow four standards: A tree board or department, a tree care ordinance, a community forestry program with an annual budget of at least $2 per capita, and an Arbor Day observance and proclamation. Over the past three decades the

Beautification Committee has had a helping hand in fostering awareness to our local community by educating residents in proper selection and pruning of landscape material, understanding and appreciating proper tree care, and promoting higher standards of landscape design along right-of-ways and canopy within the city. The Beautification Committee is ran by a group of volunteers to learn more or to become a committee member, meetings are held twice a month at the Boca Raton City Hall every first and third Wednesday at 12 p.m.

Hope is Still on The Horizon for Oklahoma By: Gina Onori After 24 confirmed deaths, including nine children, the 2 mile wide tornado in Oklahoma was an utter shock and disaster. Due to the storm, many people felt the ripple effects via homelessness, emotional distress, and other stressful situations. Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin said Tuesday the damage from the tornado that ripped through her state is bigger than anything she’s seen in her 23 years in office. Yet hope is still on the horizon. There are many actions that the community can take to salvage the lives of those affected. The Salvation Army is accepting cash donations that will assist to provide food, water, ice and other supplies. The Salvation Community News

Army is also providing emotional and spiritual comfort to those in distress. Donors are encouraged to give online at www.SalvationArmyUSA. org or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1800-725-2769). You can also text the word “STORM” to 8088 to make a $10 donation through your mobile phone; to confirm your gift, respond with the word “Yes.” Another organization helping those in need is Southern Baptist Church. You may contribute money online at www.namb.net/disasterrelief-donations/ or donate by phone at 1-866-407-NAMB (6262). Checks can be mailed to NAMB, P.O. Box 116543, Atlanta, GA 30368-6543. Designate checks for “Disaster Relief ”. Christian individuals who are active members of a local

Southern Baptist Church, in good physical condition, and at least 18 years of age, may attend a training session and join the Disaster Relief Team. Volunteers assist wherever needed in the following areas of service: damage assessment, chain saw, mud-out removal, child care, water purification, and medical reserve crops. Training sessions are held several times a year across the state; locations and times can be found at www.bgco.org/ministries/ disaster-relief. As for disaster relief agency Operation USA, they are providing emergency aid where needed to community-based health organizations across the destroyed state. Donations are being accepted at www.opusa.org/contribute,

www.bocaratontribune.com

by phone at 1-800-678-7255, or by check made out to Operation USA, 7421 Beverly Blvd., PH, Los Angeles, CA 90036. You can also support victims by texting “AID” to 50555 to make a $10 contribution through their company. Corporate donations of bulk quantities of disaster appropriate supplies are also being requested. Although many lives were lost and thousands of people were affected by this disaster, there is still hope that we can put the pieces back together. However, the community needs to come together one by one to form a whole and help Oklahoma through their struggle; it starts with you.

A Historic Moment in the All-America City By Stephanie Neeley DELRAY BEACH – In a landmark moment, the Haitian flag joined Florida’s state flag at City Hall Saturday to honor the Caribbean island’s Independence Day. About 200 people – many draped in costumes made from the flag’s red and blue colors - attended the ceremony. One young woman wore a miniature flag in her braided hair; several wore red and blue bandanas. The flag was raised at 10 a.m. and remained up until 5 p.m. “I am proud, not only proud but extremely proud to see that our country – a nation that fought for independence and is still fighting for survival - is being recognized in high places,” said the Rev. Danis Ridore, assistant pastor at St. Vincent Ferrer Catholic Church. “I’m sure there were a few tears today from some eyes.” Haitians around the world recognize May 18 as Haitian Flag Day, the day the country won its independence from France. For a city of its size, Delray Beach has one of the largest concentrations of Haitian-Americans in South Florida, following Miami and a few other urban centers in the state. As Haiti struggles to recover from political, economic and social turmoil, the day served to remind BTad_BOCA_0313_color18.pdf South Florida Haitians of1 3/8/13 the

successes of the past 200 years. It also reminded them of the challenge of the immediate future. The impact of the flag salute was immeasurable. “There are many people in this city, who perhaps just a few years ago would have never imagined, never dreamed that a moment like this would ever be [a reality],” said Vice Mayor Al Jacquet, the city’s second Haitian-American elected to the City Commission. Jacquet grew up in Delray Beach. Like many of the attendees, he has lived in the city for more than 20 years. “As I watched the flag go up, I watched the faces in the crowd and some people were literally choking up…They had tears in their eyes. You could just see the look of amazement in their faces,“ Jacquet said. Also moved was organizer U. S. Army Ret. Major Joe Bernadel. Bernadel, also a Haitian American, said the moment symbolized hope. He was also moved to see the harmony among the various groups that created the event. Also in attendance were State Senator Maria Sachs, State Rep. Bobby Powell and former State Rep. Mack Bernard. “There were different political factions, different groups of people, different segment of the society, there were poor and rich, there were blacks there were whites, there 3:22 PM officials and there were basic were

workers,” Bernadel said. “All of us came around the flag today to symbolize union and that was such a beautiful thing.” This is quite possible the biggest moment for Haitians Americans in the City of Delray Beach, Jacquet said. The symbolic move was also a clear message to the city, he added. Osner Jean of Boynton Beach hopes Saturday’s event will be duplicated in other cities across the county next year. “There are lots of Haitians all over Palm Beach County. We need to do this in every city,” said Jean, who

has been in the United States for 18 years. The gathering is a notice to the community that Haitian Americans are here in force, Jaquet said. “A lot of Haitian Americans have always felt marginalized, forgotten and ignored,” he said. “But by having this symbolic gesture, by having your country’s flag raised next to your new country’s [state] flag and side by side with the American flag, which is the greatest country on the face of the earth, it’s a huge moment for Haitian Americans.”

Boca Raton Woman Named Mother of the Year for Mentorship Role Continued from page 1 Chamber’s Education foundation and

Mothers of the Year. Four other women shared the honor. The other honorees were: - Athalone H. Brailford, a retired educator who was one of the founders of Operation Save the Children. The program, which morphed into the Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network nine years ago, was one of the earlier tutoring programs in south Palm Beach County. Brailford and a handful of other black teachers tutored children in math and reading at Pompey Park on Saturday mornings for more than 30 years. -Vera Rolle Farrington founded the Spady Cultural Museum in Delray Beach after more than 30 years as an educator in the school system. She continues to educate youth about the history of African Americans in Delray Beach and Palm Beach County. - Cathy DeMatto parlayed her professional expertise in

marketing and development to assist disadvantaged children in the greater community. Her commitment to help youth causes is evidenced by the number of organizations with which she has been affiliated. Among them are the Boys and Girls Club of Palm Beach County, the Caridad Center, the Milagro Center, Delray Beach Police Advisory board, the Spirit of Giving Network, Kids in Distress, Zonta International, and the City of Delray Beach Education board. She has chaired the city’s “Principal for a Day” program for five years. - Janet Meeks, whose name is synonymous with youth, education and children– at least in Delray Beach. She was one of the founders of the Plumosa School of the Arts Foundation, she served on the Community News

was an adult mentor for the city’s Youth Council. She was a board member of the Boys and Girls Club, a mentor for Take Stock in Children and she has championed many educational programs such as the Mayors’ literacy initiative, Principal for a Day, and the Delray Beach Pop Up Book. Meeks continues to promote the importance of education in the community. A panel of past honorees selected the five women from a list of 13 nominees, organizers said. The organization, formerly the Knights of Pythagoras Mentoring Network, honored the women at a picnic on May 11 at Lake Ida Park. Each received a personalized embroidered towel, a rose and proclamations from the City of Delray Beach and Palm Beach County. “Officer Rachel has devoted so much of her career in this city to

horses and it is not unusual to find her taking a group of us to one of the horse stables in west Delray.” VanNess exposes them to a life outside the city limits, the boys said. She has taken them kayaking and canoeing at Jonathan Dickenson State Park in Jupiter. “And this is above and beyond her regular job as a police officer,” Martinez said. “In the truest sense, she is an example of community policing.” VanNess often downplays her role. She used the story of the starfish as a model. A boy was walking along a beach

when he saw hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand because they were washed up in the tide, she said. A man, stuck by the apparent futility of the task, told the boy, ‘You must be crazy. There are thousands of miles of beach covered with starfish. You can’t possibly make a difference.’ VanNess added. “And then the boy looked at him, stooped down and picked up one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said, ‘It sure made a difference to that one!’” she said. “That’s me. If I can save one person every week, I can make a difference in this city.”

helping kids in the city,” Chris Pierre Louis, president of the Atlantic All Stars Leadership Academy, a mentoring program at Atlantic High School, told the attendees. “She and her husband gave their money, time and love unconditionally to improve our lives.” When VanNess is not on patrol downtown, she can be found meeting with representatives from community groups to plan an event or drafting a performance improvement plan to help a child excel in school, Pierre Louis said. She has recruited local business people to help tutor students at Village Academy or help them with homework. “She is a kid at heart,” said Giovanni Martinez, vice president of the Atlantic All Stars. “She loves www.bocaratontribune.com

Hospital Worker Moves From Section 8 Housing To Dream Home Through The “Community For Community” BOCA RATON, FL (May 20, 2013) – Demonstrating its long-standing “Community for Community” commitment, Broken Sound Club, an award winning 5-Star Platinum Club of America, sponsored the construction of Habitat for Humanity’s most recent South Palm Beach County home with donations of $50,000 and more than 200 volunteer hours from staff members. The keys to the home were presented by Habitat For Humanity leadership and Broken Sound Club members and staff to new homeowner Rhonda Jenkins with her daughter Rashema and granddaughter Kei’jah alongside her at a dedication ceremony yesterday at the new house located at 126 Ocean Breeze Circle in Boynton Beach. With the completion of both a one-story home in Delray Beach (in 2011) and this one-story Boynton Beach home, Broken Sound Club has donated $100,000 and 400 staff volunteer hours to the Habitat for Humanity South Palm Beach

County Village in the spirit of one community making life better for another. “Habitat For Humanity’s important work makes a world of difference to families in our area,” said John Crean, CCE, General Manager and Chief Operating Officer of Broken Sound Club. “We are all excited to help realize yet another family’s dream of having a home to call their own.” Known for its signature blend of warmth, elegance and genuine hospitality, Broken Sound Club is an award-winning private gated golf and country club community that offers a choice of 27 intimate residential villages, each with its own character. Recently recognized as an Emerald Club and one of “America’s Healthiest Clubs”, the gated community’s natural beauty and lifestyle are enhanced by its strong commitment to the environment that has been designated as GEO Certified by the global Golf Environment Organization (as the

first club in Florida and one of only 14 in the world) as well as Audubon Sanctuary Certified by Audubon International. For Rhonda Jenkins, owning her own home is a dream she’s been working toward for several years. A mother of two, Rhonda currently lives with her daughter Rashema, 24, and granddaughter Kei’jah, 4. The family has lived in Section 8 housing in Lake Worth for the past 10 years, where their twobedroom, two-bathroom apartment is subsidized by the government. When Kei’jah joined the family in 2008, space became tight and Rashema and Kei’jah were forced to share a room. Despite living in Lake Worth, Rhonda met the Habitat For Humanity South Palm Beach County affiliate’s residency requirements because she has worked at Bethesda Memorial Hospital in Boynton Beach for the past 15 years. As a Unit Coordinator, she had plenty of experience with volunteers prior to ever stepping foot on a Habitat build site. “I am so excited about being able to purchase a home for the first time in my life,” said Jenkins. “I have no problem with taking the necessary steps to accomplish the dream that

I have always wanted to come true.” Prior to applying to the Habitat for Humanity homeownership program, Rhonda worked closely with Credit Counselors of North America to improve her financial outlook. Her hard work paid off when she was accepted into the program as a prospective homeowner in October 2011. As Rhonda began her sweat equity hours, it became obvious that it was important to her to earn her home on her own. The affiliate’s sweat equity policy would have allowed Rhonda to recruit family and friends to contribute up to 40% of her sweat equity hours, but she resolved to earn them all herself. She credits her parents for her tremendous work ethic. Rhonda also used the sweat equity experience to become more active in the community, earning some of her hours at other local nonprofits, including the Caring Kitchen in Delray Beach. Although Rhonda suffered a hernia in December and wasn’t able to be as active on the worksite after undergoing surgery, she is determined to continue actively participating with Habitat in the future.

EDITORIAL By C. Ron Allen

There’s More to This Story It took her almost three years but Saunders found out that running a university, at least in Boca Raton, is a whole different set of rules than teaching. The politics is fierce and holding a Ph.D. is not a guarantee that one will be the right leader. When Florida Atlantic University President Mary Jane Saunders took the helm on June 7, 2010 she stepped into a league “not of her own.” The university had just ended a honeymoon era of unprecedented growth and development under the leadership of Frank Brogan from 2003 to 2009. It took her almost three years but Saunders found out that running a university, at least in Boca Raton, is a whole different set of rules than teaching. The politics is fierce and holding a Ph.D. is not a guarantee that one will be the right leader To her credit, Saunders accomplished a lot during her brief tenure—more than many university leaders accomplish who have much more experience heading schools. She opened a medical school, she raised lots of money, freshman freshmen applications doubled, and she completed a football stadium, which ultimately became her Achilles’ heel. She also was involved in the community, which was evident in the relationships she forged. In fact, under her watch, FAU had established three signature themes: Marine and Coastal Issues, Biotechnology, and Contemporary Societal Issues. Maybe I am singing from an entirely different sheet of music, but why would you get rid of someone who has made such strides in such a short time? If she did all this in three years, just imagine what she could have accomplished by the end of her five-year contract in another two years. FAU Board Chairman Anthony Barbar said she was not forced out. But I have covered enough stories like this and have the experience to know that there is more to this story than what we are being told. Yes, she had her share of negative ink in the press. But that’s expected in a high-profile position at an institution of higher learning. Remember –the college

environment is an incubator for student protests. That’s what college students do. Many of the freedoms we enjoy today are credited to students’ demands. Someone close to the issue, insinuated that Saunders fell on the same sword that she was handed. Maybe I am wrong, which won’t be the first nor last time, but when The GEO Group, which is headed by George C. Zoley, a former member and chairman of the Board of Trustees, gave the university $6 million to rename the stadium, they, including the trustees, accepted it. Those pesky students, who did what they do best – agitate, brought to light a history of alleged human rights abuses against prisoners and immigrant detainees. And they protested. It became a media frenzy and Saunders was forced to defend the decision with egg on her face. On some days, she fled to her car following an onslaught of negative chants and derision. She tried to resist them but buckled under pressure. That’s unwelcomed publicity the prison company didn’t need, forcing them to pull their offer. Six million dollars is a lot of money to lose. And as the rule should be in corporate America, someone should always be accountable when money is lost or property is damaged, even if it’s the top guy. Thus, she did the right thing by stepping down. Many are asking why should she step aside while her staff and even the trustees remain? As the CEO, she made the decision to accept the $6 million. But I’m sure it was not done in a vacuum. I hope she conferred with trustees before doing so. Now, she is out of the Eleanor R. Baldwin House and gone are all the perks that comes with the job although she will remain on the faculty as a tenured professor, to create a physician assistant degree program. Saunders now has to determine whether she was in a league alone or of her own and if she even wants to remain in Boca Raton.

Letters to the Editor During this year’s Legislative Session, I fought hard to pass appropriations of $500,000 for a Holocaust Documentation and Education Center. This center would have enabled us as a community to preserve the precious accounts of Holocaust survivors who suffered the most horrific tragedy in recorded history. Governor Rick Scott used his line-item veto power to target and strike down this appropriation. Florida is fortunate to be the home of the third largest population of Holocaust survivors in the world – most of who live in South Florida. I have had the great honor of meeting so many Survivors throughout my life, and the loss of this funding needed to support the preservation of their voice is difficult to stomach. Earlier this month, while visiting the Holocaust Museum site, I met a couple who survived the Holocaust. As the husband narrated his gruesome story of captivity in a concentration camp, he repeatedly mentioned the jacket he wore – it became a symbol of hope and perseverance. The couple wanted to donate this jacket to be exhibited in the Holocaust Documentation and Education Center so it could be shared with the community and future generations. The funding vetoed by Governor Scott may end their dream of displaying this precious and historic memento in the Center. The Holocaust Documentation and Education Center is vital to our community in a continuing effort promote education and awareness of the tragic events. In spite of the veto, I will continue to support and fight for Holocaust education and awareness in my personal and professional life. I feel it is my duty to all the Survivors, their children, and everyone else in the community to ensure their stories are never forgotten. - Sen. Maria Sachs

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Set a Goal and Make It Happen! Many good plans never get off the ground because those who think of their possibility bury them within the depths of their own imagination, where they remain untouched. It’s important to think on what can be done in varied situations but once that occurs, a viable plan must be developed as a goal, accompanied by all the ingredients that can bring it to pass. Unless legitimate goals are intelligently set, they have less chances of ever becoming reality. People cannot depend merely on what they have in

mind: they need to use paper and pencil to record their dreams and map out the trajectory they must follow to bring every facet of that task to completion. One needs visual aids and reminders of what is required to be done today, the next day, and the following before one can be rewarded in all diligent pursuits. It’s also wise to consult trusted friends who have travelled a similar path, and learn what steps they consider indispensable for what you are attempting! I have read countless stories of individuals who, at a young age, pretty

much knew what they wanted to do in life, when they grew up, and started early in developing a plan which led them safely to where they wished to be. Some even transcend their dreams on account of their consistent efforts to reach their goals! They had read about what others had done, they consulted with wise mentors who instructed them, and on their own they paid the necessary price to secure what they had placed before them, without rivals, in order to arrive at the destination set. And it happened,

often extending far beyond their own expectations. In life, things don’t occur by chance, especially that which will endure and achieve much good for many people. They require planning, study, experimentation; they are usually the result of a collaborative endeavor. Most of all, they are the result of specific goals set, with all the steps previously delineated, from beginning to end. The challenge remains, “Set a goal and make it happen!”

Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr. is a Florida resident who, for many years, was a professor at the post-graduate level. He is a writer, a sought-after conference speaker, a man who lived in five continents of the 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.

Suspect arrested in multiple iPhone thefts Boca Raton, FL – Detectives with the Boca Raton Police Services Department have been investigating a number of recent iPhone thefts where the suspect walks up to an unsuspecting victim sitting at an outside table, grabs the device and runs. Two of the three incidents happened on April 23rd and May 5th at the Starbucks located at 2200 West Glades Road, the third took place May 7th at the Starbucks located at 2521 West Glades Road. In all three cases the victim was seated outside and placed their iPhone on the table. On Tuesday, May 14th, Detectives at the Boca Raton Police Department received a call from a colleague at the Delray Beach Police Department who said they had just arrested two males in connection with a stolen iPhone incident in their city. One of the suspects, Chip Buck, told detectives that he and William

Pina met at New Beginnings, a rehab center in Delray Beach. He said they both learned about stealing iPhones and selling them for money from a fellow rehab patient. He said they would then use the money to buy drugs. In each incident, Buck said Pina and he would drive in Pina’s Silver Acura with Pennsylvania tags. They would take turns walking around the outside of Starbucks. When they saw a phone sitting on a table, they would grab it, run and then jump in their car. Buck said they would then sell the phone to someone in Delray Beach. Buck was charged by Boca Raton Police with three counts of Grand Theft, three counts of Conspiracy, and one count of Robbery by Sudden Snatching. The investigation continues into other similar cases.

Suspect Arrested for Breaking Into Boarded up House Investigators from the Boca Raton Police Services Department arrested a suspect for breaking into the same boarded up house on two different occasions. On April 8th, the owner of the property at 201 NE 6th Court reported that someone removed a piece of plywood from the door of the vacant residence. There was no damage, and nothing was missing. The owner then installed a video surveillance system for the home. On April 29th the owner reported that he captured a white male in the

house, and that tools were missing. On May 12th the owner called again because he saw the person captured by his surveillance system back in the area. Officers met with the person, identified as Francisco Lechuga. Lechuga admitted to entering the property, and added that he did so the first time to get out of the rain and the second time to look around. Francisco Lechuga Moreno was charged with Burglary, Trespassing and Petit Theft.

Carjacking suspect identified On Thursday, March 28 at about 10:50 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to a report of a carjacking that occurred at 521 NE 43 Street. The victim told officers she had just arrived home from work when she was approached by a male asking for directions. As she was giving the directions, the male pointed a long, black handgun at her and demanded her car keys. After she gave him the keys, the suspect got into her 2008 black Nissan Altima bearing Florida tag 881TFF and drove off. The victim’s purse, which contained cash and credit cards, an iPhone, iPad, and laptop were in the car. The victim was not injured. During the investigation, detectives with the Boca Raton Police Services Department learned about an armed carjacking in Delray Beach where a white Dodge Charger was stolen. Hours later, deputies from the Broward County Sheriff ’s Office (BSO) located the Charger along with the car from the Boca Raton carjacking at the Plantation

www.bocaratontribune.com

Inn in Plantation. Surveillance video showed both cars arriving two hours after the carjacking in Delray Beach. It also showed Myronn Berry driving the car belonging to the Boca Raton victim. Most of the victim’s property was recovered, along with majority of the cash stolen. Both Berry and Alexander Boyd were arrested by BSO. Detectives from the Boca Raton Police Services Department then went to the Broward County jail to interview Boyd. Boyd gave investigators detailed information about the night of the carjacking in Boca Raton. The red and gold color car the victim saw at the scene when she was carjacked was also recovered as a stolen vehicle by BSO in Lauderdale Lakes. Detectives went to the Broward County jail to talk with Myronn Berry who was uncooperative and refused to speak. Based on the information laid out by detectives Berry was charged with armed carjacking.

“Star Trek Into Darkness” Fast, Funny and Touching

If you liked the 2009 reboot of the “Star Trek” series, you are going to love the sequel “Star Trek Into Darkness.” When director J.J. Abrams re-

Boca Life & Arts

imagined the science-fiction space odyssey that began as a cheesy 1966 television series, he cast a group of young actors who resembled the original cast, only better-looking.

William Shatner brought a blustering egotism to his Capt. James Kirk, commander of the spaceship U.S.S. Enterprise. The new Kirk is Chris Pine, a ridiculously handsome guy with magnetic blue eyes and a more modest vulnerability that makes him more palatable to a new generation. As his first officer Spock, Zachary Quinto could be the real-life son of Leonard Nimoy, who makes a cameo appearance for the sake of tradition. The list goes on. Zoe Saldana brings a smoldering sensuality to officer Uhura, the love interest of dispassionate Spock. Brilliant British writer-comedian Simon Pegg infuses a new life to the excitable engineer Scotty. Justin Cho is stoic and solid as office Sulu, who is asked to step up in this episode. The movie begins with a splash of the color red with the Enterprise characters scurrying about a forest

www.bocaratontribune.com

of red trees inhabited by white, clayish-skinned creature that look like something out of a Kabuki theater. It turns out Capt. Kirk has been a bad boy and he violated the rules by allowing himself to be seen by the white creatures. The Enterprise is ordered back to Earth, where Kirk is reprimanded and busted down in rank, and Spock is transferred. Kirk’s disobedience is overshadowed by a terrorist bomb explosion in London, killing dozens of innocent people. It is theorized that the perpetrator is one of Starfleet’s own. Admiral Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) orders Kirk to the hostile planet Kronos, where it is thought a turncoat named Harrison (astute British actor Benedict Cumberbach) is hiding out. It is impossible to watch the latest “Star Trek’ without thinking of the current volatile world situation, where entire countries are cowering in fear at the threat of terrorist attacks as drones scan the skies and politicians double cross one another. This story is old-fashioned in that it is about honesty, integrity and courage versus cruelty, deceit and random violence. What makes it even more appealing is its deft use of comedy to defuse dire circumstances. This is the funniest and fastest-paced “Star Trek” yarn I have ever seen, yet it does have emotional moments that tug at the heartstrings. I am not now nor have I ever been a “Trekkie.” I thought the original television series was pompous and silly. The movie reboots were more of the same. This sequel is hip, smart, funny where it needs to be and emotionally involving when it counts. That’s quite an achievement for a summer season blockbuster. It looks like the Star Wars franchise is secure for the foreseeable future. Three and a half stars

Call 561-271-1281, ext. 4 “Sumptuously beautiful:” that in a nutshell is a film called “Renoir,” opening May 24 at FAU’s Living Room Theaters. If you like French Impressionist painting of the late 19th and early 20th century, you will love this factual biographical film by Gilles Bourdos. There is more than one Renoir in this film. The patriarch is the great painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir, who in the summer of 1915 is at the twilight of his life, but no less

He finds his latest inspiration in a stunningly gorgeous young actress named Audree Heuschling (Christa Theret), whom he hires as a model. Renoir loved to paint “au plein” (outdoors), and he preferred his models to be unclothed. This evidently led to a lot of hankypanky, but by this time the artist’s sexual drive has vanished in reality, yet lingers in his fond imagination. There are three other Renoirs: Jean (Vincent Rottiers), a certified war hero who is on leave because of

“Renoir” is a blossoming romance between Andree and Jean, who are based on real-life characters. In 1915 Jean fantasized about the new art of making films, and he promised Andree she would be his star. This really happened. Jean Renoir, best-known for “The Grand Illusion,” became a pioneering figure in French cinema and Audree was his leading lady. But this all happened after 1915. “Renoir” marks the ending of one fabulously creative career and the beginning of another. It is a deliciously enticing package of beauty, romance, duty to family and country and love. If you care anything about these things, “Renoir’ may seduce you.

Excellent Dining At Rocky’s Italian Bistro Chef/Owner Rocky Telesca heads a team of knowledgeable and helpful cooks and servers at this modern, comfortable restaurant. Dorothy, Arthur and Marty and this reviewer had the opportunity to sample Rocky’s offerings starting with a cold antipasto platter with 7 tasty delights; followed by calamari, nicely breaded, fried and tossed in a great fradiavolo sauce – a superior dish. The Shrimp Rocky-blackened shrimp over tostini bread was overwhelmed by its garlic cream sauce. Other antipasti include mussels marinara or mussels with white scampi sauce…also a fried fresh mozzarella with the marinara sauce. Two hot soups were presented…a fine Italian egg drop style and the flagship soup Pasta e Fagioli, a well stocked, delicious treat. We tested a light, pleasant Caesar salad – available with anchovy strips, if you wish. The house salad with romaine hearts, carrots, tomato, olives and onions was a crisp, delicious repast as was the goat cheese and artichoke with tomato in an excellent warm vinaigrette. A spinach salad and a caprese salad are also listed. Listed as “House Favorites” are 6 items: veal chop Sicilian, surf and turf, pear shrimp, lobster tail and shrimp, blackened snapper and shrimp parmigiana – all well thought out with appropriate sides, sauces and starches. Different pasta require different cooking times and are a true test of Italian restaurants. Here each pasta arrived tasty, tender and perfectly prepared. The Fettuccine Alfredo was superb in its cream sauce…with or without a dusting of cheese. The Rigatoni Calabrese with broccoli rapini, spicy sausage discs with garlic and olive oil was a rich, deep tasting dish. We enjoyed the Spaghetti

Carbonara with the pancetta and onions in a rich Alfred sauce and then the Capolini in red sauce. All were tasted and applauded. A dozen other listings are featured here. There are 5 chicken dishes and we chose a lovely sweet, beautiful breaded Chicken Francese. Of the 5 veal dishes we selected a perfect Veal Parmigiana, rich and rewarding. Both can also be had marsala style, sorentino style or piccata style. We noted the 11 seafood selections – most with pastas which we had earlier. We will try their fish, clam, mussel and shrimp dishes in the future. Rocky suggested “House Best”… his rib eye…we ordered it done medium and medium it was done. This was as fine a tender, juicy and delicious steak as in any upscale steak house. Bravo! One may also select a prime center cut filet mignon or a veal chop…possibly with prosciutto and mozzarella, all served with vegetable and starch of the day in a cognac, demi reduction mushroom herbal truffle sauce! We sampled tiramisu, cannoli and both the ricotta and New York cheese cakes – all quite rich and fine tastings. A half dozen other desserts are listed as well.

Fast & Furious: More of the Same, and Funny By Skip Sheffield You can only go so fast or get so furious. Finally in order to keep a franchise going, you’ve got to add a third F: funny. That’s exactly what Jason Lin has done with “Fast & Furious 6.” This is Lin’s fourth time as director of F&F, so he must be doing something right. Entertainment Weekly magazine featured Fast and Furious as its cover story of its May 17 issue: “50 great Guilty Pleasures.” Since I like car chases and amazing stunts, FF 6 was the easy choice over another sequel, “Hangover 3.” How many different kinds of hangovers are there? Whereas car chases, crashes and stunts have an infinite variety. ET provided a handy-dandy guide to all previous F&F movies, dating back to the first in June, 2001. For each episode it categorized the bad guys, cars crashed and the time it takes for the first car to crash. Suffice it to say, with each feature the crashes came sooner, more often, and more spectacular. For FF 6, Lin has reunited a whole mess of heroes and villains for one big mixup.

In the previous “Fast Five,” excon street-racer Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) and FBI agent Brian O’Connor’s (Paul Walker) heist toppled a Brazilian bad guy and rewarded their crew with $100 million. The crew scattered across the globe, but when you are accustomed to living fast and furiously, retirement can seem rather boring. While the crew snoozes, tireless FBI agent Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) has been tracking a ruthless gang of mercenary drivers across 12 countries. The chief bad guy is Ian Shaw (British badass Jason Statham), aided by a mysterious badass girl. The girl is Letty Ortiz (Michelle Rodriguez), Dom’s former girlfriend he thought was dead. Nope, Letty is very much alive, but in Chris Morgan’s screenplay she conveniently has amnesia. When Hobbs challenges Dom to reassemble his crew in London and do battle in the streets, you just know he will accept the challenge. In addition to being an actionadventure and a comedy with a smidgen of romance, FF 6 is also part-travelogue, starting in Russia, moving to Macao, London, Los

Angeles and all over Europe. The cast is a United Nations of ethnic and racial types: Italian stallion Vin Diesel, Latina lovely Michelle Rodriguez, Caucasians Luke Evans and Paul Walker, Asian Sung Kang, African-Americans Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris, and part-Samoan former University of Miami Championship football player and professional wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Johnson in particular has gotten better as an actor, with a sharp sense of comic

timing that contrasts humorously with the guttural, deep-voiced, laconic, but much smaller Vin Diesel. There are so many car crashes, you tend to lose count, but I’m sure someone will. What is unforgettable is the use of a combat tank for wholesale vehicle destruction. What possibly could be next one wonders? We will find out next summer with installment seven. Three stars

FAITH

DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLE

By Casey Cleveland

By Mike Gora

Give them more grace

A Real Marriage

So last month we explored this idea of how much our kids need grace. Just like we do. And we looked at how God has given us the grace we so desperately need in Jesus. This is called the gospel and it is good news. Good news for a sinful, self-centered, fearful, broken father like me who deserves judgment and separation from a holy God. But instead gets grace. God in his love for me punishes Jesus in my place so that he can forgive me from the penalty of sin, free me from the power of sin, and one day remove me from the presence of sin. This is the good news of receiving something I do not deserve or could never earn. It had to be given. It had to be grace. Now the question becomes how do we give this same type of love to our children who so desperately need grace? What does it look like to give our kids grace? Before we dive into a few practical applications, first let me give thanks to Elyse Fitzpatrick and her book “Give Them Grace”. This structure comes from her material. When real life happens, both good and bad, how do we give them grace? 1. Manage: often times in the life of our children we simply need to manage their behavior. Management does not get to the heart, but is a necessary aspect to bringing safety and security to our children and families. Management involves saying things like, ‘Do this’ and ‘Don’t do this,’ ‘Stop,’ ‘That is not safe,’ ‘Do not hit your brother,’ etc. Management is a must for our children that always push the limits, but we must not stop here. We have not given them grace. It is sad that many of us actually stop here with well-managed behavior, rather than heart transformation. 2. Nurture: this is a chance for us to really relate at a heart level with our children. “I understand how you feel, I too feel sad when I lose…” Even more, this gives us the opportunity to point our kids to Jesus that is the ultimate definition of grace. “Jesus also understands how you feel, and knows very well what it is like to be sad over losing. He became very sad when he thought about losing his life and being punished for our sin on the cross.” 3. Train: this is now an opportunity to apply the gospel of grace. Leading our children to see how the person of Jesus affects the

everyday real life of our children. “The gospel tells us that even though losing can be sad, we know that because Jesus lost for us we now can have joy in every situation.” Going a little deeper “and it is the real and living Jesus who gives us power to keep going even in losing because he accepts us no matter how many times we lose. You are not defined by losing or your sadness, but as a child dearly loved by Jesus.” 4. Correct, we are now at a point to get to the heart of the matter. Not just behavior modification, but what is really going on in the heart. If your child continues to struggle with a negative attitude or anger about losing, this provides an opportunity to explore the heart. “Why are you so upset?” “What is it about winning that you really wanted?” “What is it about losing that is so awful to you?” This is often a time when the idols that live in your children’s heart will be revealed. Idols like pride, the desire to be known and worshiped, peoplepleasing, acceptance, etc. At this point we can redirect our children to what Jesus has done for them as being more than enough. The life he has given us will always be far greater than any of the temporary things we tend to look for to fill our identity. “And just maybe, your attitude is reflecting that you have forgotten about what is most important in life.” 5. Promise: this is my favorite part. Especially for children who have a living faith in Jesus as their savior and king. The promise of the gospel is that it is not about you or your performance, but simply about the steadfast love of God given in Jesus. No matter how much you lose, get angry, get sad, quit, etc., the love of Jesus will never change for you. It does not depend on you. God has set his love upon you and is well pleased in you because when he sees you he sees Jesus. You will never do anything that can affect the way God loves you. He has set his affection on you and nothing will ever make him love you more or less than he does right now. So rest in Him. You watch, you wait, and just see how much the gospel of grace motivates a new heart and thus a new life in your kids. And in you. Much Love, Casey

Having finished law school at the University of Florida I moved to Los Angeles for my first job as an attorney with the National Labor Relations Board. While looking for an apartment I stayed at the home of my Aunt Pauline and her husband in a small house on the edge of a cliff in Palos Verdes, Catalina Island in the distance. My cousin Samuel lived a few miles north along coast highway. Always one of my favorites, I was happy to re-connect with him as well as Pauline. Sam lived with a friend in an apartment overlooking the Pacific. Both Sam and his friend were pianists and the living room featured two baby grand pianos. Sam and his friend each had good jobs, paying much more than my start up income and had lived together for a few years. They were hoping to marry some day when their lives settled a bit. His friend had a daughter from a past marriage. Sam and his friend, now long retired, live in a beautiful home in Oregon, after being together for almost fifty years. They never did marry, because they couldn’t, they are both men. Isn’t it about time that Florida law permitted marriage between couple of the same sex? What harm could that do? The couples, thousands of them in Florida, will continue to live together marriage or not. Homosexuality was never a choice; it was and is a condition of birth which cannot effectively be reversed. The couples are human beings, citizens of the United States and the State in which they live. Same sex couples get together stay together or break up in numbers identical to heterosexual couples.

They own property accumulated over the course of their relationships, get sick and are hospitalized, and die just like heterosexual couples. The banning of their marriages reeks of depravation of basic constitutional rights when compared to the rights of heterosexuals. Certainly some of the problems given gay couples because of the ban on marriage can be overcome by drafting will and trusts, and living together contracts. Many others cannot be overcome by the couples themselves, like those raised by the HIPPA rules. But it is more than that. Given their legal circumstances they feel they are relegated to second class citizens because they cannot legally take advantages benefits of other couples including income tax reduction, and discounts in the purchase of health insurance, and home care insurance contracts among many others. The men and women who are in these relationships are, to the same extent as the rest of the population, creating positive family units with long histories. It is hard to believe that there is any political reason for Democrats or Republicans to any longer object to granting these inalienable rights of human beings to all Americans, including Floridians. Florida was the last state in the union to allow gay couples to adopt children. That advance was forced by Florida Courts, not by our benighted legislators who, generally, cannot see beyond their respective re-elections. Let your legislators know that we Floridians are tired of being the fools at the end of the whip of hate of discrimination against our fellow gay citizens.

Business The Boca Raton Tribune

CityTwist and Shout Remember when e-mail marketing was frowned upon? Those days are over as the consumer looks forward to deals coming through their e-mail addresses. One Boca company, CityTwist, has transformed the industry with their geo-targeted technological breakthrough that has made the company one of the fastest growing businesses in the country.

In one quarter last year the company experience a revenue growth of more than 150% and is routinely recognized by Inc. Magazine for their growth. In fact, Business Leader Magazine named CityTwist the number two small business in South Florida and the number eleven in the Southeast US with rankings based on business achievements, financial performance, and civic contributions. What’s the Twist? It’s the solution for bricks &

mortar businesses marketing directly to local customers. Unlike contact services that are limited to contacting a business’ pre-existing customers, CityTwist provides access to its subscriber database of 57% of internet users in the United States. It took the company almost six years to build the supercomputer technology that currently contains a consumer database of 125 million geo-targeted e-mail addresses. “We provide companies with a ROI dream as we introduce them to potential new customers that are requesting to receive their offers. There is no set-up fee. The customer doesn’t pay for any undelivered e-mails and is able to reach out to the zip codes that they choose. It’s been incredible,” said Ken Schwartz, CEO of CityTwist. “People enjoy receiving our e-mails because we will not permit adult, pharmaceutical, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, or business opportunity advertisements to be mailed from our systems.” You Auto Know Much of the company’s recent rapid growth is attributed to the company’s Conquest Automotive division. On average, CityTwist’s Conquest Automotive customers have dropped the marketing cost per car sold by more than 60%. This has resulted in hundreds of dealers from around the country religiously using CityTwist’s customer acquisition tools. “We are very proud of what we

have accomplished in the automotive world,” added Schwartz, CEO of CityTwist. “The level of service the our team provides, and the great return on investment our automotive customers enjoy, truly underscores the foundation of excellence that has been built at the company.” Prospecting for Gold After all the talk about the demise of the Mom and Pop stores, small businesses now have a fighting chance when CityTwist launched their new product ProspectPro in 2012. This allows these small businesses with the ability to use hyper-local email advertising from CityTwist’s 125 million opt-in consumer database. ProspectPro has made local advertising easy, effective and affordable with all data, creative artwork and delivery included. “We have truly empowered the small business marketplace as they now can compete against large national companies for hyper-local consumer business,” said Schwartz. “For less than a cup of coffee a day, ProspectPro is an incredibly powerful tool for businesses that draw from their own neighborhood for their customer base.”

With Precision Starting with one franchise at Precision Tune Auto Care, ProspectPro was so successful that they recently received the national contract. Kevin Bates, Senior VP of Marketing and Advertising said, “We were very pleased with the local awareness that ProspectPro generated for our Precision Tune locations. As a result of the increase in customers, ease of use, and success of the tests it was a no brainer for Precision Tune to roll it out to all of our franchise and corporate stores.” Going Hire CityTwist’s growth numbers for 2013 are so impressive that they are currently hiring and are expecting 100% revenue growth and 40% employee growth. They are currently looking for sales and technologists. “The scary thing is that we’ve only tapped the surface of the businesses out there trying to reach new customers. We are finding out that if they test us out, they become long time clients because of the stunning ROI,” concluded Schwartz.

2 Local Tenet Hospitals Receive ‘A’ Safety Ratings in National Survey By Jason Schwartz Delray Medical Center and West Boca Medical Center were honored with an “A” Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, hospital officials announced. The A score was awarded in the latest update to the Hospital Safety Score based on preventable medical errors, injuries, accidents and infections. The two local hospitals were among eight Tenet Florida hospitals that earned an A. The others are Coral Gables Hospital, Good Samaritan Medical Center, North Shore Medical Center, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, Palmetto General Hospital and St. Mary’s Medical Center. “All of our hospitals are dedicated to delivering safe, quality care,” Marsha Powers, senior vice president of operations of the Tenet Florida Region, said in a release. “The hard work of all of the staff members, nurses and physicians is being exemplified through this distinguished award, which is grounded in evidence-based quality.” The Washington-based Leapfrog Group evaluates hospitals based on data the hospitals file with the federal government as part of its treatment

of Medicare patients. Leapfrog also asks hospitals to complete a questionnaire focused on information technology and employee education. “Hospitals that earn an A have demonstrated their commitment to their patients and their community,” said Leah Binder, president and CEO of The Leapfrog Group. “I congratulate these hospitals for their safety excellence, and look forward to the day when all hospitals will match this standard.” The Leapfrog Group was formed in the 1990s among employers such as General Motors, FedEx, UPS and Toyota that were concerned that many of their workers were getting hurt in hospitals that were supposed to restore them to health. About 180,000 Americans die each year from preventable hospital errors such as infections. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety and is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families.

Local Companies Rally to Help Oklahoma Tornado Survivors By Stephanie Neeley A local business has partnered with Power 96 and McDonalds to collect canned and non-perishable food items for the thousands of survivors in the Oklahoma City suburb that was devastated by a massive tornado Monday. BMI Elite is collecting the food at its Boca Raton office and will send it to Moore on May 24 to be distributed to those who need it most. “I am asking everyone to join our efforts to help out those who may have lost everything in the tornado,” CEO Brandon Rosen said. “Thousands of people are in need of some help to get through this difficult time, and BMI Elite is doing our part to support them.” All items should be brought by noon May 24 to 1095 Broken Sound Parkway NW, Suite 300 in Boca Raton. “BMI Elite cares about our community and organizations that make the world a better place,” Rosen said. “We realize how far some food can go for the people who have no choice but to completely start over.” The powerful storm, topping the National Weather Service scale for tornadoes, cut a swath of devastation through Moore (8776MF), a town of 55,000, destroying the Plaza Towers

Miami will need Dwyane Wade if they want to Beat Indiana By: Pedro Heizer It’s been a while since Heat fans watched Dwyane Wade take over an NBA playoff game in a way only Wade is capable of. At 31, it looks like father time has finally caught up with Wade, who staggered during Miami’s championship run last spring and wasn’t called upon to carry the Heat in any of their conference finals or Finals games, LeBron took care of all that. You have to go all the way back to Games 4-6 of Miami’s 2012 secondround series against the Pacers to find a playoff stretch when Wade looked like Wade. The peak was a 41-point, 10-rebound performance in the series-clinching sixth game at Indiana, the kind of masterful piece of work that only Wade is capable of. Since then, looks like it’s been downhill for the former NBA Scoring Champion. Wade, a former Finals MVP, has only one game during the entire 2013 playoffs in which he scored more than 20 points, and that came on a 21-point, sevenrebound performance in game two

the opening round of the playoffs against the Milwaukee Bucks. Wade is also averaging a playoff career low in points per game, averaging a mere 13 points per game. It’s no surprise Wade’s knees have been bothering him. In fact, Wade explained to the media the kind of adjustment he’s doing to his knee in order to make it bearable to play… And to be honest, it sounds more gruesome than encouraging. In describing one of the treatment he’s undergoing for three bone bruises that surround his kneecap, Wade said trainers try to “move the kneecap so it doesn’t rub,” and then tape it in place. That’s some Terminator stuff, and it doesn’t bode well for a Miami team that will someday soon need Wade to be Wade. Wade showed us in game five versus the Bulls that he is still capable of taking over a game and putting a team on his back, Wade had a blocked shot, defensive rebound, offensive rebound and putback slam -- all in a late 45-second span -- to help Miami secure their spot in the Eastern Conference Finals for the third straight year.

But Miami will need that from their captain on a regular basis as the defending NBA Champions get set to face the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals. Averaging 12.6 points per game like in the second round versus the Bulls will not cut it versus a team who is hungry and ready for revenge. Wade will have the assignment to guard Lance Stephenson, yes the same Stephenson who was caught on camera giving James the choke sign during the playoffs. Wade has the advantage in the experience category; however, Stephenson has two healthy knees. Stephenson was spectacular in Indiana’s Game 7 win against the New York Knicks, with 25 points on just 13 shots, plus 10 rebounds. However, even with a banged up knee, Wade edges Stephenson on every statistical category in the 2013 playoffs but one, rebounding. It is clear Wade is capable of being the player Miami needs, a player who can play without the ball, create (and make) shots, and defend. Wade just needs to be healthy enough where he is not a liability on the floor. He’s not injured to the point of

being out, but he’s not healthy, either. He is the very definition of “banged up.” Wade is known for listening to critics and coming back even stronger than ever, his whole life he has been about doubt, it’s the driving force behind Dwyane Wade; fall seven times, get up eight.

Lynn Women’s Golf Fights to the Finish to Claim 2013 NCAA Division II National Championship By Olivia Coiro Lynn University’s women’s golf team captured the 2013 NCAA Division II National Championship on Saturday afternoon, edging fourtime defending national champions and top-ranked Nova Southeastern by three strokes with a 1,187 team score in the four-round tournament held at the LPGA International Legends Course. Lynn shot a 305 on the final day to finish the tournament +35 on the 6,228yard par-72 course. This is the second NCAA title for the women’s program, and fourth overall, and gives Lynn University 21 national championships in its illustrious history. The Fighting Knights won backto-back NAIA women’s golf titles in 1995 and 1996 before making the jump to the NCAA to win its first title in 1997. Last time the Blue and White appeared in the NCAA Championships was in the 2005-06

season where they placed third. “National Champs has a great ring to it,” said second-year head coach Danny Randolph. “I am extremely proud of our team and all they have accomplished as their hard work and perseverance has paid off. We carried ourselves with confidence and class and no better group deserves to call themselves national champions.” Nova Southeastern started the day with one goal, winning its fifth straight national crown. However, the Fighting Knights had other plans. The two teams would exchange a one-stroke lead throughout the first sixteen holes, but it was evident when Louise Manalo put ball in the hole on the 18th green that Lynn would emerge victorious, earning the fourth title in program history. Ellen Chambers and Samathan Smolen were on point through the front nine holes, shooting even par. Chambers posted the lowest score

of the day for the Fighting Knights, 75, and played nearly flawless golf by shooting even par through the first 13 holes. She finished fourth individually. Smolen, who tied for ninth, and Calvo each carded 76s while Jessica Bradley finished +6 with a 78. Manalo proved to be at her best when the team needed her most. The sophomore out of Brussels, Belgium set career-bests for 18 and 54-hole totals when she carded a 69 on the second day and logged a 218 through three rounds, topping her previous 54-hole total by a whopping 14 shots while also tying a program-record. The last Knight to turn in her score card, Manalo totaled a 79 on the day and placed sixth. “I had an overwhelming sense of joy knowing we had just won the national championship when I walked off No.18,” Manalo added. “I’m very proud of my team and feel this is well deserved because it

was a group effort that got us here and helped us win. We all have each others back and that is what a team is about.” With Lynn (1,187) taking the crown, fellow Sunshine State Conference schools Nova Southeastern (1,190) and Barry University (1,194) placed second and third with St. Edward’s (1,226) and Grand Canyon (1,235) rounding out the top five teams. Barry’s Nancy Vergara was named the individual national champion when she topped the player board with a 291. NSU’s Linnea Johansson (292) and Daniela Ortiz (294) finished second and third overall. The Sunshine State Conference has now claimed every NCAA Division II women’s golf national title since 2000 and 15 overall when Divisions II and III combined for its championship from 1997-99. Additionally, SSC schools have finished as the runner-up 11 times. May 24, through May 30, 2013

HEAT Head to Third Straight Eastern Conference Finals, Take On Pacers

By: Steven Rawnsley This series will be a dogfight. The Pacers are a better version of the Chicago Bulls with all of their injuries. The one thing the Heat struggle with the most is just the Pacers strength, size. The Pacers have one of the best power forward and center combinations in the league. At times in the playoffs the Pacers best offense has been a missed shot because of the Roy Hibbert and David West duo. The Pacers are leading the playoffs in rebounding differential, at a plus 9.8 boards a game. The team 2nd in this stat was Golden State at a plus 4.3, and then nobody has more than a +2. Combined, this combination has shot 47.1% from the field. The rest of the team has shot 39.7% from the field. Make no mistake about it. The Pacers want to go big. With the starting lineups the Pacers can dictate the matchups. David West should be able to guard Chris Bosh well, and Haslem is not much of a threat offensively, so Hibbert can help off of him a lot, and clog up the paint like he did against the Knicks. Paul George has a very similar build to Luol Deng, and PG made the all-NBA defensive 2nd team, and Deng is known as one of the better defenders against LeBron. Nobody can shut down LeBron, but PG is the perfect defender to at least make LeBron work for his baskets. Dwyane Wade has struggled at times in the playoffs. He is still a great player, but his days of being a superstar are over. On the other Sports

hand, nobody has ever questioned Lance Stephenson’s athletic ability. DWade might have a very tough time offensively driving against Stephenson, which has always been Wade’s biggest weapon. The Pacers have the pieces to matchup with Miami’s big three. However, where the Heat have an advantage is when they Heat go small. The Ray Allen addition is huge in this series. Last year the Heat ended games with Battier usually on the floor. Even in Battier’s prime he wasn’t a guy that dictated matchups. His game has always been about the doing the small things, or intangibles. Now, Ray Allen has enough scoring or shooting ability to create matchup problems. Ray Allen still comes off of a lot of screens. As stated earlier the Pacers want to go big, so with West and Hibbert on the floor, who does West guard if the Heat have their big three in, along with a PG and Allen? Can West keep LeBron under control? Can West stay up with Allen coming off screens? On the other end, LeBron can guard West in the post. The series will come down to who can dictate the matchups. While we have seen the return of the big men in these playoffs, this series is a different story. The Heat have the most versatile player in the league in LeBron. He can guard any position, and this is where it becomes huge. While he can play PF with no matchup problems for the Heat, it creates matchup problems for the Pacers, and that is why the Heat will win the series. www.bocaratontribune.com

Matt Glaeser Comes Up Huge For Fort Lauderdale as Strikers Defeat Laredo Heat in Penalty Kicks

Photo Credit: Jon Van Woerden

By: Pedro Heizer It wasn’t as easy as they had hoped, but the second-tier NASL

Fort Lauderdale Strikers advanced 7-6 in penalty kicks after a 1-1 draw against amateur PDL Laredo Heat in a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup match at Lockhart Stadium on Tuesday. “That’s what the US Open Cup is

all about,” said Strikers’ coach Daryl Shore. “You put everything on the line when you play these games.” With the decision, Fort Lauderdale will host MLS Western Conference leading FC Dallas at Lockhart Stadium on Tuesday, May 28, in the Third Round of the 2013 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. After a first half of soccer that was about as uneventful as watching grass grow, Mark Anderson finally broke the nil-nil scoreline in the 54th minute when Darnell King raced down the middle, passing through the Heat’s defense and delivering a great ball to Anderson who had no trouble putting it in the net. In the 66th minute, Laredo’s Daniel Galvan Barbosa was given a red card after he shoved Darnell King to the ground after King broke free from the defense. Despite playing a man down in the last 24 minutes of regulation, Laredo still managed a goal from defender Camilo Bolero in the 83rd minute, tying the score at 1-1. “When we went up a man I think we took the foot off the gas a little,” said keeper Matt Glaeser. “Bolero’s ball took a deflection and I went the wrong way, I could have done better.” “Matt’s our goalkeeper,” assured Shore. “He’s been here a long time,

he was just on a bad run lately but he came up huge for us in the end.” After a deadlock score through 120 minutes of play, it took penalties to declare the winner. Shot after shot, neither team missed a penalty try until Genaro Hernandez had his shot stopped by Matt Glaeser in the seventh round. Stephane Guillaume stepped up for the Strikers with a chance to win, but his shot was saved by Emmanuel Frias. Then Gregory Mulamba’s attempt for Laredo was saved by Glaeser, his second consecutive save. Finally, Toni Stahl took his chance, and with a short run up, struck the ball low and to the left to win the shootout for the Strikers in the eighth round of the tiebreaker, sending them on to face FC Dallas. “I expect them [FC Dallas] to bring their full team,” said coach Shore. “It’s a chance for our guys to face an MLS team and see what we are really about.” “We’re going to have to come out and play a lot better than we did tonight if we want to beat FC Dallas,” said Glaeser. “But I do think we are capable of beating anyone.”
