Soroptimist Women’s Awards Breakfast a Sold-out Success

By Jason Schwartz An intimate gathering of individuals including area mental health clinicians, school counselors and law enforcement officials joined members of the community on Saturday to start the conversation on behavioral and mental health. Starting promptly at 10 a.m. at Atlantic Community High School, the session, “Let’s Talk Delray Beach,” opened with a clip from the Oscar Award-winning film, “Silver Linings Playbook,” a romantic comedy. At the dinner table the two main characters, who suffer with mental health illness, openly discuss numerous medications they’ve taken and how it affected them. The dinner hosts, family members, become very uncomfortable with the discourse. Moderator Toni Marshall of CRA Media Group decided to start off “Let’s Talk Delray Beach” with this clip as an icebreaker and also to start the conversation. “How many of us have access to these medications, know how or where to get them or even know what they are?” she asked. The immediate panel included Delray Beach Police Captain Michael Coleman and Clinical Behaviorist Clay Robinson. Marshall gave an anecdotal account of how selfmedicating is more than likely the prescription in economically depressed communities. C. Ron Allen, president of CRA Media Group, presented an overview, which included statistics, myths and fears and recent mental-healthrelated violent incidents. He also presented information on a range of possible actions to establish or improve prevention of mental illnesses, promotion of mental health, public education

Community News

and awareness, early identification, treatment, crisis response, and recovery supports available in their communities. “These community conversations will certainly encourage innovation and creativity to meet the concerns of our city and ensure that all perspectives are heard and respected,” Allen said. “After all, we all have a stake in the outcomes.” The most impressive part of this forum was how everyone just talked freely. A representative from the South County Mental Health chimed in as well as representative from Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Shari Kaplan, a Boca Raton psychologist who founded Can’t Tell Foundation -a nonprofit organization, which aims to help bullying victims cope and eventually overcome - their pain - added some insight as to how children and young adults are mislabeled. Everyday citizens asked questions about how to handle loved ones with behavior issues. Members of the school community inquired about ways to work with children with behavior issues and even asked about bullying. Community members learned about the role of law enforcement, when it comes to dealing with the mentally ill. The session lasted the full two hours, with participants taking part in an informal verbal survey. “Mental health issues in our communities—particularly for our youth—are complex and challenging; but, by coming together and increasing our understanding and raising awareness, we can make a difference,” Coleman said.

FAU Student Says He Was Denied A Laptop Because He’s Gay By Tyler Kingkade An openly gay student at Florida Atlantic University believes a campus librarian denied him the use of a laptop due to his sexuality. Abdul Asquith attempted on Oct. 23 to check out a laptop at the Wimberly Library on the Boca Raton, Fla. campus. The laptop checkout requires valid university-issued identification, but when Asquith showed his FAU ID, the librarian refused him Asquith said the librarian looked at the ID and remarked, “You sound, look and act like a girl and in this ID is a man, therefore I’m not giving you a laptop.” Asquith was “appalled,” “embarrassed” and “distraught,” he said. He was finally able to obtain a laptop after speaking with several librarians. “Because he acts a certain way, he can’t possibly be this? It shouldn’t even be like that,” Samantha Lemessy, who witnessed the incident, told WPTV. “People need to start speaking out and addressing this every time this happens,” Asquit added. FAU spokesperson Lisa Metcalf confirmed in a statement to The Huffington Post Monday that the

student was initially denied his request. “The situation was quickly corrected and an FAU administrator issued an immediate in-person apology,” Metcalf said. “The University takes allegations of discrimination seriously and continues to investigate the incident.” For FAU, a public university in Florida, it adds to a growing pile of controversies over the past year. Another FAU employee with unpopular views, tenured professor James Tracy, claimed the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre and the Boston Marathon bombings were likely staged. An FAU professor also began receiving threats after a student took offense to a classexercise in the spring where pupils were asked to write “Jesus” on a piece of paper and step on it. And early in 2013, the university received heated backlash after agreeing to name their stadium after a controversial for-profit prison group. One student protester said the university’s president clipped them with her car at one demonstration in March. The deal was eventually scrapped and the president resigned.

These include food banks, homeless and victims of abuse shelters, training for the unemployed, and guidance to achieve self-sufficiency.

The event provided an opportunity for the agencies to talk about their United Way supported programs, and enlist new NCCI volunteers. NCCI is the nation’s largest repository of workers compensation information. The company’s mission is to foster a healthy workers compensation system.

Death Toll Highest On Record for Manatee, Still Climbing 2013 has become the deadliest year ever for Florida’s endangered manatees. In total, 769 manatees have died so far this year from January 1st through October 29th, making it the largest annual manatee die-off in Florida since record-keeping began. The previous record was set in 2010 when biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission documented 766 dead manatees, of which hundreds died from cold stress. With more than two months still to go in 2013, nearly twice the number of manatees have already died than died in all of 2012. According to Dr. Katie Tripp, Save the Manatee Club’s Director of Science and Conservation, two unusual mortality events in 2013, coupled with the regular threats manatees face on a daily basis, have been responsible for the unprecedented losses. A record number of 276 manatees succumbed from exposure to a toxic red tide bloom in southwest Florida, centered in Lee County. Meanwhile, on Florida’s east coast, an unusual mortality event claimed more than 100 manatee lives in Brevard County this year. “This year’s record-breaking manatee mortality is a loud and clear signal that our waterways are in trouble,” said Tripp, who explained that of the total number of manatee deaths so far this year, 123 were stillborn, newborn, or young calves less than five feet in length, which sets another annual record for this category of mortality. Of these, at least 49 were found in Brevard County, at the epicenter of the unusual mortality event linked to a variety of algal blooms and loss of 47,000 acres of seagrass since 2010. “With 2013’s catastrophic loss of manatee lives coming so close on the heels of the mass mortality suffered during 2010, the already difficult job to ensure the survival of these gentle and defenseless marine mammals has been made all the more challenging, and it’s not over yet,” said Patrick Rose, an aquatic biologist and the executive director of the Club says. “What we put into our waters, how much we pump

from our aquifer and draw from our springs and rivers, together with how we use our waterways, all has an impact on our own lives and the lives of every aquatic species. We must be better stewards of our waters and waterways or suffer even more severe consequences going forward.” Save the Manatee Club reminds the public that November is Manatee Awareness Month in Florida – the time of year when manatees are on the move, making their way to important winter warm-water sites. The Club offers a variety of ways for the public in Florida to be directly involved with manatee protection during November and throughout the year. Free public awareness waterway signage, boating banners and decals, waterway cards, and educational posters are produced by the Club. The bright yellow waterproof banner which cautions, “Please Slow: Manatees Below,” can assist in warning boaters to slow down for manatees who may be in the area. Shoreline property signs and matching boat decals are also available, featuring the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s hotline number 1-888404-3922 for reporting sick and injured manatees. Boater and diver awareness posters are also available for dive shops, marinas, businesses, visitor centers, classrooms and libraries. Family-friendly outdoor signs are produced by the Club and distributed to state, municipal, and county parks; marinas; and other sites where human/manatee interactions can be a problem. “The public’s ongoing participation in manatee conservation, in Florida and outside the state, is essential for the welfare and protection of the species and the aquatic habitats upon which they depend,” Rose said. Requests for any of these free materials can be sent via e-mail to education@savethemanatee.org or by calling toll free at 1-800-432JOIN (5646). For more information on endangered manatees, visit the Club’s website at www.savethemanatee.org.

IT’SUGAR Opening Today in Delray Beach: Buy The World’s Largest Pack of Nerds By Nicole Danna Two new sweet spots are opening off Atlantic Avenue in downtown Delray Beach, each serving up sugar in two of its finest forms: candy and ice cream. While we have a few weeks to wait before we can indulge at the newest Sloan’s ice cream location, a candy superstore is now officially open. Boca Raton-based IT’SUGAR will be celebrating the first day of business for its tenth South Florida store today, one of 60 planned to open this year, and 100 slated by the close of 2014. See also: N2 Winebar Opens Today in Delray Beach; Wine on Tap, Tasting Events, and Education One of the largest and fastest growing specialty candy and gift retailers in the world, today the IT’SUGAR empire consists of over 70 retail locations in cities like New York, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Scottsdale, San Diego and Palm Beach, in addition to chic international destinations such as London, Dubai, and Grand Cayman. The brainchild of Jeff Rubin, a self-described “candy man,” each retail location offers up to 8,000 different edible items for sale, from old-fashioned Necco wafers to nameless Japanese fruit candy and giant packs of Nerds. Ever

wonder where you can buy that giant 5-pound gummy bear? Get it here. The concept: a candy store for adults -- an outlet to indulge in all your guilty pleasures -although sugar-lovers of all ages are welcome. Here, mannequins adorn the windows like some sort of fashion retail shop, but instead of sporting the latest looks from Calvin Klein or Abercrombie they show off giant candy bars and novelty accessories. “Everyone needs a place to let loose and indulge,” Rubin has said. “Floridians love to have fun, and that’s what we are all about so expanding through Florida is one of the most important steps in bringing my love of candy across the nation and the world.” Stop in IT’SUGAR before the end of the month and you’ll still be able to get IT’SUGAR’s custom “One Tough Chick” pink Peeps pop, featuring four pink marshmallow Peeps for $2.50 with 20 percent of proceeds going to breast cancer education, treatment and research. For Christmas, Rubin may be debuting a new product: a half-pound gifted chocolate bar for $9.99. IT’SUGAR will be open Friday and is located at 250 E. Atlantic Ave. in Delray Beach.

Haynie filed back in March. But on Oct. 8, Majhess filed his papers challenging Haynie in her bid to succeed term-limited Mayor Susan Whelchel. The elections will be held on March 11, 2014. Haynie said that she decided to run for mayor because she felt it was the next practical step to take in her career. “I have a lifetime of community involvement in Boca Baton. I’m a 40 year resident, I raised my family here, I run a small business here,” Haynie said. “I’m term-limited as a council member so the mayor is the next position that I feel ready to move into.” However, Majhess, who currently occupies Seat D in the Boca Raton City Council, decided to run because he felt compelled to take on Haynie and her ideas for development. The majority of the council, which includes his opponent, has been promoting developments based on transits which allow for greater density and less of a parking requirement. He worries that the plans are going to create more traffic, parking problems and eventually turn Boca Raton into an urban hub. But Haynie does not foresee a traffic nightmare. She believes that her experience in traffic management allows her to determine whether or not she’s pushing for a transportation downturn. “I’ve spent 10 years working for the city of Boca Raton as an engineering analysis and I do have certifications in traffic studies,” Haynie said. “So professionally I understand traffic management and traffic analysis.” As far as Boca Raton transforming

into an urban hub, Haynie said that the concern is really only for the downtown area which has a different set of rules and regulations. According to Haynie, the city is under an infrastructure created by a previous council 26 years ago. As part of that frame, 8 million square feet was approved for the downtown area and about more than half of the plan has already been implemented. “We’re still building on that,” Haynie said. “It was always contemplated that the downtown will have taller buildings and more intensity. That was the plan put into play 26 years ago. The rest of the city is under different regulations.” In addition to the greater density developments, Haynie said she has a lot more on her list for benefiting city. For Haynie, the challenge going forward is to maintain the quality of life and character that define Boca Raton. Some of her vision includes: -Constructing a centrally located parking garage that will address the traffic concerns at the intersections of Palmetto Park Road and NE 5th Avenue and planning for the train station on the FEC. -Completing the I-95 interchange -Working with the Town Center Mall area to site a second Tri Rail station as part of their Planned Mobility regulations. -Seeking collaborative Beach renourishment planning and funding Haynie said the urbanization of Boca is a concern about changing the character of the community. From working on homeowner boards, she asserts she’s well aware of the charm of Boca Raton and not looking to change it but simply better maintain it. “I have the community involvement, and I have professional expertise and I have the leadership skills to be the next mayor,” Haynie said. “So that’s what I’m doing.”

Communication is the Best Defense in the Fight Against Bullying By Detective Daniella Quinn It has to be a very painful and scary thing for parents to learn that their child is being bullied. As parents, you may find yourself pondering the tough question: Do I intervene on behalf of my children or hold back and let them work out the problem themselves? At times, it wasn’t until after the fact that parents learned their children were being bullied. And I think that’s probably true more often than not — kids go through these things and never tell their parents. One in 10 teens tells parents if they have been a cyber bully victim. Less than one in five cyber bullying incidents are reported to law enforcement. Bullying is a repeated and hurtful act of someone intimidating or hurting another person. This behavior includes taunting, teasing, spreading rumors, social exclusion, hitting or pushing, taking or breaking another’s property. Cyber bullying is online harassment to include sending mean texts, emails or instant messages, posting nasty pictures or messages about someone else. In this fight against bullying and cyber bullying, communication is key. Parents should: • Talk to your children and explain to them what bullying is and that it is unacceptable • Teach your children about how to resolve conflicts peacefully and accepting everyone’s differences • Always keep open communication with your children; know their friends and most of all know their concerns • Encourage your children to not be afraid and report, to any trusted adult, any bullying that occurs to them or even if they see it occurring to someone else. Let’s get the children to begin to speak up for one another and help their peers • Ask questions daily about what your children are doing in school; monitor

their Internet and cell phone activity, set rules and guidelines for its use. As a parent of a child using social media, educate yourself about the Internet and its various forms of communication and use parental controls. Importantly, take the time to look at the social media conversations, the pictures/videos on your child’s profile page and make sure your children are aware of the consequences of any negative posts or comments. There are, of course, a million forms of bullying, and sometimes the worst thing adults can do is look the other way. In the most awful cases, we’ve seen teenagers use social media in such cruel ways that it has led to a classmate committing suicide. Though bullying is as old as classrooms, only in the past decade or so have states moved to address with legislation what once was simply the domain of schools. In 1999, only Georgia had an anti-bullying law. Now every state except Montana does. In the past 14 years, states have enacted nearly 130 anti-bullying measures, half of them since 2008. Spurred partly by the Columbine shootings in 1999, when news accounts suggested the perpetrators had been bullied, states began rapidly addressing bullying, a 2011 U.S. Department of Education report found. Eighteen states have laws that allow victims to seek legal remedies, either from schools that don’t act or from the bullies themselves The hopeful news is that in my lifetime, schools and law enforcement have become much more aware of the dangers of bullying and the need to be proactive. The bad news is it is still not enough. Remember that bullying is not only wrong; it’s a crime and should be reported right away. Now is the time to stand up against bullying. Let’s continue to work together to keep the children in our community safe.

INTEGRETY MOMENTS By Rick Boxx

A Modern-Day Workplace Tragedy A powerful scene in the theatrical film, Amazing Grace, communicates a powerful point that many people - including those in the business professional world - have profoundly misunderstood through the centuries. In the movie, William Wilberforce, the 19th century British abolitionist, struggles with what to do with his new found faith - he wonders how to make it a meaningful part of his everyday life and responsibilities. As he wrestles with this critical issue of faith and practice, Mr. Wilberforce receives several visitors who have been told about his dilemma. These people all were abolitionists, ardently opposed to slavery, and knew of Mr. Wilberforce’s political passion and skill, especially in his own opposition to slavery. We understand that you are having difficulty deciding whether

to do the work of God or the work of a political activist, one of the men said to him candidly. The woman in the group then drove home the point with surgical precision. We humbly suggest you can do both. As a result, he became instrumental in the dissolution of slavery in his homeland. Many followers of Jesus Christ operate under the belief that value in God’s eyes comes only from entering full-time ministry. In essence, this means leaving their business or professional jobs to pursue careers directly affiliated with churches, mission agencies or parachurch ministries. In many cases, unfortunately, this is a tragedy that results in a terrible waste of gifts, expertise and experience. God has made each of us with unique talents and has given us the

opportunity to develop distinctive skills. When we mistakenly come to the conclusion that only missionaries or pastors have special, high callings from God, we miss His best for our lives. As a result, we may either leave work where God could have used us in extraordinarily fruitful ways for His purposes or, plagued by the feeling that our work is not important in God’s grand scheme, we underutilize the gifts we have received. In his first letter to the church in the ancient city of Corinth, the apostle Paul wrote, Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches (1 Corinthians 7:17). Imagine a world in which everyone that claimed allegiance and devotion to Jesus Christ - called Christians

in the Bible - served only as pastors and missionaries. Who would reach the people in the workplaces of the world? Who would provide the food, shelter, clothing, and other necessities that are essential for carrying out God’s plan? Who would start businesses or lead our governments? To withdraw from being an integral, contributing part of the so-called secular work world (the Bible makes no such distinction) would be disastrous. Even worse, to do so is not God’s plan. If you are wondering whether to leave your current job to go into vocational ministry on a full-time basis, remember we all are called to be in ministry to others, regardless of where we work. Consider the sage advice of Wilberforce’s friends: You can do both!

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Stop Making Excuses! It’s very easy for anyone to make excuses; what can be difficult is to justify all the excuses. Some are legitimate and can be reasonably defended; their majority, however, is simply made to save face and exonerate one of any responsibility! Honesty is becoming less and less a factor in human interactions and relationships and one of the ways its absence is noticed, is precisely in the kind excuses that people offer. Society, unfortunately, increasingly suffers on that account! Many persons don’t take personal responsibility seriously enough. At least, they define differently what

they consider to be responsibility and what not. They take a very casual view of what society in general still acknowledges regarding responsibility, based on the dictionary’s definition of that word. There are also those who easily find defenders of one’s inability to keep commitments, and to act responsibly on other issues. I’ve heard an unforgettable excuse made on behalf of somebody else, to the effect that “he is wired differently” and this explains why he acts in this or that way, according to that faulty assessment!

Excuses can be fully justifiable in several situations, if based on reality and responsibility. It remains a reasonable recourse for the healthy functioning of individuals in society. That’s why its abuses are never received favorably, especially when truth is being unnecessarily sacrificed and violated! By saying “stop making excuses” I’m not trying to eliminate this possibility from human interactions but simply addressing the masking of truth which most frequently is what animates the offer of those kinds of excuses. Be courageous at all times,

regardless of the consequences. The only valid excuse is the one that is made truthfully. Those who act in this fashion will retain their reputation even if some disappointment may also occur on the part of those affected by the excuse. People are ready to forgive as they realize that nobody is perfect. Inventing an unjustifiable excuse, based on distortions of the truth, not only leaves a bad taste in one’s mouth, but causes one’s credibility to suffer damage – sometimes irremediable! You don’t desire that, do you?

Two arrested for burglary After FAU PD finds them prowling on their campus On Wednesday, October 30 at about 9:50 p.m., Boca Raton Police officers responded to Highland Beach where they met with Steven Finkelstein who had his American Express card and driver’s license stolen from his car earlier in the evening while at Cinemark, 3200 Airport Road. Mr. Finkelstein was not aware that his property had been taken until he received a phone call from Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Police alerting him that two individuals on their campus were in possession of his property. Several hours earlier, FAU police officers were alerted to two suspicious males in a parking lot on campus. FAU Officers contacted the two males identified as Daniel Mikac and Benjamin Pavoni and

subsequently arrested them for loitering and prowling. When officers searched Pavoni, they located property belonging to Mr. Finkelstein. After contacting Mr. Finkelstein and confirming the property was stolen, they notified Boca Raton Police. Once FAU officers processed Mikac and Pavoni, they were transported to the Boca Raton Police Department. Boca Raton Police detectives interviewed Mikac and Pavoni. Mikac told detectives he and Pavoni had checked car doors at Cinemark until they found one that was unlocked and took Finkelstein’s property. Officers charged Mikac with burglary to a conveyance and Pavoni with burglary to a conveyance and possession of stolen property.

Tactical team arrests six for various crimes On Friday, November 1 at 2:25 p.m., members of the Boca Raton Police Department’s Tactical Team were conducting surveillance in the parking lot of the Palmetto Park Square, 1401 West Palmetto Park Road, when a white Nissan entering the parking lot caught the attention of one of the officers. The vehicle had dark tinted windows, only one functioning brake light and was registered to a rental car company. The driver drove through the parking lot, eventually backing into a spot at Denny’s next to a black Chevy, also a rental car. The driver and passenger of the Chevy switched spots and an unidentified male handed the driver, identified as Monica Sande, a rectangular item which Sande later told officers contained a stolen Florida driver’s license. Officers stopped the Chevy when it left the parking lot and made contact with Sande, who was driving, and the passenger, identified as Demetrius Robinson. Officers smelled an odor of marijuana emanating from the vehicle. When officers spoke with Sande she told them Robinson had given her a check in the name matching the one on the stolen license and she was supposed to cash it at the TD Bank. The check was found concealed between the passenger seat and the center console. Officers arrested Sande and charged her with criminal use of

personal identification, petit theft, violation of probation, and loitering and prowling. Robinson was charged with possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, petit theft, loitering and prowling and violation of probation Additional officers pulled over the Nissan after it failed to stop when exiting the parking lot. Officers made contact with the driver, Autumn Thomas, and passengers James Maxwell, Kennedy Green and Brandy Stewart. Officers smelled the odor of marijuana emanating from the interior of the car and subsequently located marijuana on the center console as well as on the seats and floorboards. When officers searched Thomas they located a Visa debit card which belonged to another person concealed in her clothing. Officers also located a Georgia driver’s license and several credit cards, which were taken in an auto burglary in Athens Clarke County, concealed in the headliner of the car. All four suspects gave different reasons for being in the parking lot. Officers arrested all four and charged them with possession of marijuana and loitering and prowling. Maxwell also had an active warrant out of Ft. Lauderdale for possession of cocaine. Green had an active warrant out of Ft. Lauderdale for sale of cocaine and was in violation of his probation.

Suspect steals security guard’s gun, fires it into the air During the early morning hours of November 1, 2013, officers from the Boca Raton Police Services Department were called to the clubhouse at the San Marco apartments on Military Trail after a party got out of control. The security guard told detectives that while he was trying to break up the fight he felt someone grab his firearm. When he turned around, the person holding the gun, later identified as Michael Bell, refused to give it back until the security guard stopped the fight. While trying again to stop the fight, the security guard heard the suspect fire the gun three times into the air. The crowd

www.bocaratontribune.com

quickly dispersed and the security guard asked again for Bell to give him his gun. Bell returned the gun and then fled the area. Detectives located and spoke to Bell. Bell told officers that he and two other friends crashed the party. It was during that time that the fight broke out and one of Bell’s friends was being attacked by five to seven people. Nervous that the fight was going to get out of hand, Bell said he grabbed the gun and fired it in the air. Bell was arrested and charged with Robbery by Sudden Snatching (firearm), Aggravated Assault and Discharging a Firearm in Public. October 25, through November 15, 2013

By Skip Sheffield “D Word- A Musical,” which has opened at the Rinker Theatre of Kravis Center in West Palm Beach for a run through Nov. 10, is not really a musical, but a musical revue of catchy songs on the themes of being “Ditched, Dumped, Divorced and Dating.” Orlando’s Jeanie Linders, who created the wildly successful “Menopause: The Musical” franchise, has crafted a similar comic approach to the very real hurt of a marriage breakup. Linders calls it, quite accurately, “a party show.” Linders and director/ choreographer Mayme Paul have Boca Life & Arts

Don’t Cry; Do “D Word- A Musical”

cast four women representing distinct types representing women in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. “D Word” has been honed with previous runs in Orlando and Las Vegas. This experience shows in the precise vocal performances of four solo-quality voices performing in perfect harmony to recorded tracks a set of 14 mostly familiar songs about the flip side of romantic bliss. Unlike “Menopause,” which had parody lyrics to popular songs, the songs have their original lyrics. What is new is biographical information and dialogue from the characters. The setting is a 6-minute speed-dating event. Erica (Angie

McKnight) hasn’t gotten lucky in 14 years. DeeDee (Maddie Castro) is in the dumps after the breakup of her 20-year marriage. Kate (Laura Wright) feels her biological clock ticking. She just wants a “sperm donor.” Jen (Sarah Hester Ross) is trying to rise above the humiliation of losing her fiancé of six years to another guy. The mood is set with the Gloria Gaynor anthem, “I Will Survive.” After the one-off original “Single Ladies” we go back to the 1950s doo-wop of Lieber & Stoller’s “Fools Fall in Love” and even farther back to “Just a Gigolo.” Greatest hits such as The Miracles’ “Shop Around,” “The Way of Love”

www.bocaratontribune.com

and Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger” (What Doesn’t Kill You) get new renditions as the ladies drink, talk, cry a little, fight a little and reconcile. Although this is an ensemble, you will probably have a favorite chanteuse. It seems unfair to single anyone out, but DeeDee Castro is the comic sparkplug as “Your Booty Parlor Babe,” who glories in her first date in years with “Hot Stuff ” and bounds into the audience with “Before He Cheats.” Less than a musical; more than a revue, “D Word” is pure fun in 90 minutes without an intermission.

“12 Years a Slave” a Powerful, Disturbing Drama

There are several worthy new film releases this Friday. Standing head and shoulders above the rest is “12 Years a Slave.” Be advised “12 Years” is not light entertainment. It is perhaps the most realistic depiction ever of slavery in the USA. Slavery is never a pretty sight or sound. Interestingly, the two main forces of “12 Years,” director Steve McQueen and star Chiwetel Ejiofor, are from the United Kingdom. “12 Years a Slave” is a true story based on the account of his abduction and enslavement by African-American Solomon Northup, published in 1853. The screenplay is by another AfricanAmerican, John Ridley, who wrote the stirring tale of Tuskegee airmen in “Red Tails.” Northup (Chiwetel Ejiofor) was a free-born American man living in Saratoga Springs, New York in 1841 with his wife Margaret (Quvenzhane Wallis) and two children. One evening in Washington, D. C. Northrup was approached by two men with a proposition to earn big money touring with a circus show. The men plied Northrup with wine until he was quite drunk. When he woke up in the morning he found himself in chains and manacles. He was forced aboard a sailing ship bound for Louisiana manned by slavers, where he was sold to the highest bidder by Theophilus Freeman (Paul Giamatti). That person was William Ford (British actor Benedict Cumberbatch), a Baptist minister who was relatively benign as slave owners go. Unfortunately

Northrup ran afoul of Ford’s cruel, racist foreman John Tibeats (Paul Dano), who forced Northrup’s sale to Edwin Epps (Michael Fassbender), a disreputable, sadistic slave-driver if there ever was one. Epps’ wife Mary (Sarah Paulsen) was not much better, and she was particularly cruel to her husband’s favorite slave Patsey (Lupita Nyong’o). Patsey is the anguished face of total submission and humiliation, raped regularly by Epps and ordered whipped until lacerated and bleeding by Mary. There will be many instances when you will want to avert your eyes, and perhaps that is the point powerfully driven home. Slavery was ugly and horrific and it was a tragedy it lasted as long as it did in the supposed “Land of the Free.” It is an interesting coincidence that Brad Pitt, who played a sleazy operator in the lousy film “The Counselor” plays the good guy, Canadian abolitionist Samuel Bass in this film. Michael Fassbender, who was also in “The Counselor” and two previous Steve McQueen films “Hunger” and “Shame,” pulls out all the stops in portraying one of most reprehensible villains ever seen on film. “12 Years a Slave” is strong yet still necessary medicine to remind us what tore our country apart a century and a half ago.

Security set, directed by Jon Turteltaub (“National Treasure”). In light of his current marital woes, this could be seen as art imitating life for Michael Douglas, 69, now separated from his beautiful, much younger wife Catherine Zeta-Jones. Douglas plays Billy, an aging confirmed bachelor who is the last of his Brooklyn gang to attempt a commitment to marriage. Impulsively at his Malibu mansion, Billy proposes to his girlfriend, who is less than half his age. This prompts his childhood friends to throw a last bachelor party in Las Vegas. This takes some doing, as Paddy (Robert De Niro, 70) has hardly left is New York apartment since his wife died. Archie (Morgan Freeman, 76) lives as a virtual prisoner with his protective son in New Jersey. Sam (Kevin Kline, baby of the group at 66) has retired, moved to Florida with his wife and is bored out of his skull. The best I can say of “Las Vegas” is that it is funnier than I thought it would be. These guys are old pros after all, and though screenwriter Dan Fogelman’s script is creaky with old-age clichés, the actors seem to be enjoying themselves. The best thing about the film is Mary Steenburgen as Diana, a retired accountant who has decided to reinvent herself as a

night club singer. Steenburgen, 60, is a wonderful advertisement for a woman aging gracefully- and she’s a darn good singer too. Two and a half stars Crooks Conspire in “Capital” Hate banks and the white-collar crooks who run them? “Capital” is a French film by legendary Greek-born director Costa-Gavras (“Missing,” “Z”) that will confirm your worst suspicions. When the CEO of the French bank Phenix collapses and dies on a golf course, an ambitious underling named Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh) is tapped as his successor. Tourneuil thinks he is in charge, but he is just a pawn in the treacherous power games that ensue with the hostile takeover attempt from an American hedge fund led by ruthless, pitiless Dittmar Rigule (Gabriel Byrne). It doesn’t help that Tourneuil can’t help falling for exotic supermodel Nassim Liya Kebede. “Capital” is Robin Hood in reverse. Bankers “rob from the poor to give to the rich.” As one of the characters notes, “They’re grownup children.” This is fiction that is all too close to the truth. Three stars

Four stars Old Guys Have Fun Too On a much lighter note we have “Last Vegas,” which is a silly situation comedy for the Social

Catch Pasta fever With a Fine French Flair

Located at 4251 North Federal Highway in Boca Raton, this bistro offers a standard print menu and daily specials subject to fresh ingredients currently availableassuring fine taste. Call 561-3380012. We sampled baked clams in owner, Chef Eric Moursan’s own recipe – finely chopped with a good touch of garlic. This night the escargot were Provencal rather than in puff pastry-juicy bi-valves, nicely garnished and, again, a bit of garlic also available-homemade salmon gravlax plus roasted red bell pepper in olive oil and garlic. Soups are created daily and we were treated to the most delicious creamy mushroom soup ever…a must try. The traditional onion soup was smooth and tasty with its cheese crown. Menu lists four salads… ”Cleopatra”, tomatoes, mozzarella with olive oil and red onions balsamic glaze; a take on “Caesar” that was fine with a homemade dressing; ”Ever”salad and “Five Leaf Salad”. Off the standard menu was a warm goat cheese salad –and it is sensational! You may choose your favorite pasta-penne, fettuccini, linguini, gnocchi, spaghetti, farfalle, etc. Then order any of 18 pasta dishes, well defined as to ingredients therein. We chose lobster ravioli, thin pockets in a bit of a bite red sauce, then Fettuccini Alfredo in a very light sauce, finally thin spaghetti in a great Bolognese sauce . Each pasta was cooked to an individual tenderness. There are 6 ravioli dishes listed as well. Note: This reviewer had a sample of Eric’s Bouillabaisse a magnificent deep flavored broth

Boca Life & Arts

with, this night, clams, mussels, shrimp, potato slices, local fish and seasonings. If it is on your menuorder it! If not, call in advance and perhaps the Chef can oblige. From the special menu we chose a rack of lamb- 4 loin chops, done medium as requested and full flavor in their juice . The crispy duck had rich flavor as well as garnished with a mixed berry sauce infused with red wine vinegar, sugar and spicessuperior! We tasted –off menulemon Sole Almondine, sweet and tender in an excellent sauce with nut meats. You may also seek out Duck Mousse Foiegras, the Warm Goat Cheese salad, Eggplant Parmesan Salmon Pesto, Shrimp Provencal, Snapper Francese, Veal Parmesan( or Piccata), Chicken Parmesan or Veal Chop roasted garlic. Desserts vary every day – we found three winners in key lime crème Brule, apple caramel pie and carrot cake – all rich and flavorful. There is a Pasta Fever Sunset Dinner from 5PM to 6PM, cash only at$17.50 per person. It offers a choice of 4 appetizers, 9 entrees garnished including pasta, vegetables and dessert.

Tony’s Tips For Success Tony Hall

“It’s not the Direction of the Wind...”

Like the Jim Rohn quote states when it comes to personal success we can not rely on the direction of the wind to get us where we want to be; We must set the sails in the direction we want to go! In order to best reach our destination, we must lay out a set of goals. Like any navigator on a vessel we will need a M.A.P. or a Massive Action Plan! Zig Ziglar gives us an excellent procedure to setting goals and achieving them. Let me use an example from when I was a United States Marine to show how the procedure for setting goals can be used. You can use it for your own personal goals. As a United States Marine, we were required to become excellent marksman with our issue weapon. We would go to the range twice a year to become proficient and test our skills and ability on the weapon. How well you did on the range played a big impact on promotions, awards, and most of all pride, after all we were Marines, if we did not know how to shoot, then there was nothing else! I will outline the 7 step procedure, and while I am talking about shooting a gun, add in your own goals, and see how you do! The GOAL..."Become an Expert Marksman on the Range!"

Step #1 Identify Your Goals : I would like to become a proficient Expert Marksman Step #2 What are my Benefits? : Faster Promotion, Medal, Pride, Recognition, Opportunities! (If you do not have the Want to ===> you won’t have the Will Do) Step #3 What are my Obstacles? Weather conditions, Experience, Factors out of my control Step #4 What Skills, Knowledge and Abilities do I need to accomplish this goal? Do I need to spend more time learning about the weapon and shooting techniques? Step #5 Who is your Support System? Shooting Coaches, Friends, Marines working the targets Step #6 What is my Plan of Action? I will spend extra time, dry firing the weapon working on trigger control and breathing exercises. Step #7 What is my Completion date? 2 weeks for Marines at the range. For your goal it may be different or it may be predetermined. Many of us do not like making goals for our selves because it holds us accountable. We have a fear of failure. Just remember, Failure is just a lesson. Next week we will discuss overcoming failures with perseverance to complete our task!

Bublé Wows Crowd at BB&T Center

Michael Bublé clearly deserves to be called the best lounge singer of this generation. His mastery of songs, both standards and those that come from his own pen, go well beyond the ability to merely interpret the material. He owns it all, and his performance this past Saturday night at the BB&T Center clearly bore that

out. At 38, this amiable Canadian performer still retains a decidedly boyish and unassuming charm. Although he emerged from the shadows following a fiery eruption that signaled his arrival -suggesting we were about to witness some stereotypical Vegas-like spectacle -he quickly cut to the chase, looking supremely confident and casual, despite his tight-fitting tux. He quickly chatted up fans and even invited a mother and daughter who held up a shiny sign to come up to the front so he could read it better. (“I love shiny shit,” he confessed.) Bublé is clearly quite a charmer, and he instantly had the audience swaying in the palm of his hand. Of course, when you pick such exceptional classics to reinterpret, you’re several steps ahead already. That was evident with the first

selection, a perfect take on Peggy Lee’s “Fever” that he performed with a balanced blend of sass and seduction. His backing band was ideally suited for the task, an economical rhythm section backed by both swinging horns and soothing strings that phased in and out depending on the song. And naturally, the crowd responded in kind, even tossing up a tiny Panthers onesie to the stage. Those unaware of his new baby may have been puzzled, but as Bublé held it up for all to see, he offered an explanation. “The greatest day of my life,” he began sincerely, “was the day I found out that little boy was mine.” Bublé tossed in several laugh lines during the show, insisting after a particularly embracing version of his hit “Home,” complete with a filmed backdrop that appeared to show family and friends posing tenderly together on a sofa. “If I sing one more ballad, I’m going to cut my own throat.” Naturally, though, he did continue to sing some ballads, including a triumphant take of “To Love Somebody,” which he started from a stage set in the back of the house and sang as he walked back forward, shaking hands under the stern eyes of his security team and looking like the conquering hero celebrating a triumphant return. Likewise, a riveting take on “Burning Love” had him replicating some Elvis Presley moves, a bit of

www.bocaratontribune.com

show-biz shtick that was obviously inevitable given the material at hand. The fact is, Bublé is such a natural, that all the affectation isn’t even needed. When he sings his hit “I Just Haven’t Met You Yet,” the distance between the entertainer and his audience simply melts away. Likewise, his sincere and emotional thank you to his fans for all they’ve done to enrich his life and that of his family was touching to the point of tears -- certainly rare coming from an artist of his stature. Selfeffacing to a fault, he still seemed to take it all in with a wink and a nod that assured everyone he aspires to remain decidedly down to earth. Ultimately, his intent was to rally the crowd with a celebratory stance. His read of the Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love” could have been hokey and perfunctory as most covers of this song often are, but in this case it was accompanied by cheery visuals that illuminated the entire auditorium and an explosion of confetti that showered the house and seemed to go on forever. It was the ideal combination of songs and spectacle, and it never once seemed overwrought or pretentious. Indeed, one would be hardpressed to name a better showman, complete with smooth moves, a voice to match, and a natural rapport with his audience and admirers. With all his hits, awards, and accolades, this Bublé still isn’t about to burst.

miamicityballet.org lourdes lopez artistic director

By: Skip Sheffield That’s all you need to know about Robert Redford’s one man-againstthe-sea struggle. Star Robert Redford is heard uttering those words in a voiceover prologue to writer-director J.C. Chandor’s drama of survival. Chandor made his impressive debut in 2011 with the Wall Street melodrama Margin Call. Nonetheless, and with any actor other than Redford at the helm of this escape from peril, All Is Lost might not interest us at all. But it is Robert Redford -- an American film icon at age 77 -- who pointedly and proudly displays his wrinkles and blemishes, putting himself through the proverbial ringer as the unnamed solo sailor of a 39-foot sailboat, out somewhere in the Indian Ocean between Madagascar and the Somali Straits. Why the character would undertake such a perilous journey at any age (let alone 77) is never explained, nor is there any background as to his family, friends or previous life. He is just there, and just as inexplicably his boat rams a large metal container of sneakers, followed by much water pouring in from the resulting gash. The water makes quick work of the vessel’s electronics, but

luckily our man seems to have memorized the Boy Scout manual. With no power and no means of communication, Redford improvises with an old-fashioned sextant, charts and celestial reckoning. Our man also had the foresight to carry fiberglass cloth and resin to make a temporary repair. He even improvises a desalinization process and gets a fish strike on a hand-line, prompting temporary joy. But wait – a huge storm imperils him further. The boat again takes on water and our man is reduced to floating helplessly in an inflatable life raft, drifting tantalizingly close to huge container ships in the shipping lanes. Robert Redford has never won a Best Actor Academy Award . Clearly this is his best shot -- with scowls, grimaces, ah-ha moments and expressions of defeat and despair conveying the range of his hopes, fears and frustrations mutely but powerfully. “All is Lost” got a standing ovation at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. It remains to be seen if the American public will appreciate this existential Kabuki theater as well – but I think Redford richly deserves an Oscar nomination at the very least. Three stars

FAITH

DIVORCE FLORIDA STYLE

By Robert J. Tamasy

By Mike Gora

The Persuasive Power of Persistance What would you consider the foremost requirement for success in the workplace? Would it be talent? Or education? Training? Good luck? Certainly each of these can be a factor in professional success. But there is one other quality that might be more important than all of them – persistence. Richard M. DeVos, Sr., co-founder of the Amway Corporation and owner of the National Basketball Association’s Orlando Magic, offered this perspective: “If I had to select one quality, one personal characteristic that I regard as being most highly correlated with success, whatever the field, I would pick the trait of persistence. Determination. The will to endure to the end, to get knocked down 70 times and get up off the floor saying, ‘Here comes number 71!’” DeVos seems to have a good point. If we think of top achievers in virtually any pursuit – government, business, technology, science, medicine, even sports and entertainment – we find most of them did not become “overnight successes,” but rather made their marks through hard work and a resolve never to accept failure as a final verdict. When we read the biographies of famous people, we usually discover they utilized adversity as motivation to keep trying, rather than as an excuse for quitting. I have a friend who overcame great disadvantages in childhood and young adulthood to forge a very successful career as an entrepreneur and sales executive. Despite a limited education and a lack of training, he embarked on a rigorous self-improvement program, despite scoffers that

insisted he was doomed to fail. Persistence, even in the face of setbacks, was his constant companion. The Bible has much to say about persistence and its close cousin, perseverance. For instance: Persistence builds character. Just as persistent exercise strengthens and tones muscles, persistence in the face of everyday challenges and obstacles builds character and inner strength. “…but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us…” (Romans 5:3-5). Persistence provides joy. Staying the course, refusing to give up, and then reaping the fruits of hard work and determination, provides a sense of joy and fulfillment that cannot be achieved in any other way. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything” (James 1:2-4). Persistence reinforces purpose. When we focus on specific goals and an overriding, clearly defined mission, they help us to persevere despite discouragement and disappointment. As DeVos said, we can get knocked down 70 times and get up again. “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:13-14).

Home School Q: We have twin girls. We lived in another state until the girls were in second grade. We then moved to Boca Raton, 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 she found. We cannot afford a private school. She suggested home schooling the children. I am against it, and told her so. I didn’t 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 completed fifth grade for the 2012-2013 school year. 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 children’s 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 wife’s counterpetition did, that would be sufficient once you denied her request in your answer to her counter-petition.

Since your daughters are half way through fifth grade, the judge will have time to decide what happens next, before your girls are ready to enter middle school, next fall. Your attorney and your wife’s counsel will have to be prepared to put on a case that addresses either of the judge’s 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. Testing is available for children being home schooled. 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. You 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. 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.

NCCI Employees “Get in the Game” for United Way, Raise More Than $256,000 Campaign monies will help United

By Wendy Schauben NCCI’s two-week United Way campaign raised more than $256,000 this fall, proving once again that NCCI’s more than 900 employees are fund-raising champions for their favorite cause. This year’s theme was “Get in the Game.” The Boca Raton-based company, which gathers and analyzes workers compensation data for customers across the country, has supported United Way of Palm Beach County for more than 20 years. In the spirit of this year’s theme, employees dressed in brightly colored team jerseys and participated wholeheartedly in campaign from games to companywide raffles. Raffle winners won airline tickets to anywhere in the United States; a weekend hotel-stay in Orlando; and gift cards to local restaurants.

Way support more than 45 charitable programs in Palm Beach County. These include food banks, homeless and victims of abuse shelters, training for the unemployed, and guidance to achieve self-sufficiency. Earlier this fall, NCCI hosted a “United Way Agency Forum” for more than 30 nonprofit organizations. The event provided an opportunity for the agencies to talk about their United Way supported programs, and enlist new NCCI volunteers. NCCI is the nation’s largest repository of workers compensation information. The company’s mission is to foster a healthy workers compensation system. NCCI integrates socially responsible principles into the workplace and the community.

FAU Football Earns Wright His First Coaching Victory

BOCA RATON, Fla. - After an emotional week on campus, the Florida Atlantic University football team scored 27 unanswered points and kept its bowl game hopes alive with a 34-17 victory over Tulane on Homecoming Saturday night. Interim Head Coach Brian Wright earned his first victory as a head coach after taking over the position on Wednesday. FAU intercepted Tulane on four-consecutive pass attempts in the second half to keep the Green Wave at bay. D’Joun Smith racked up three of those interceptions to tie a school record and now has the most interceptions in the nation with seven on the season. Smith became the first player to intercept Tulane three times in a contest since Clinton Burrell of LSU on Nov. 22, 1975. Quarterback Jaquez Johnson set a school record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a season with his seventh and eighth scores on the year. Johnson threw for 107 yards and ran for 114 and two scores. The FAU defense held Tulane to just 167 yards of offense and recorded four interceptions and two sacks. The Owls allowed only nine first downs, the third fewest by an opponent in FAU history. The defense stymied Tulane in the second half, giving up only 56 yards and three first downs. Tulane scored on FAU’s first possession of the game when Jaquez Johnson was intercepted by Lorenzo Doss who returned it

69 yards for a touchdown. Johnson would respond by leading the Owls on a nine-play, 63-yard drive, all on the ground, to tie it at seven. The sophomore quarterback teamed up with Jonathan Wallace for all 63 yards with Johnson punching it in from one yard out. FAU fumbled on the next possession, giving the Green Wave the ball at the Owls’ 25-yard line. The Owls stuffed Tulane on the five-yard line, holding them to a 22-yard field goal and a Tulane 10-7 lead at the start of the second quarter. Tulane extended its lead to 17-7 late in the half after pinning the Owls at their own five-yard line. Orleans Darkwa rushed on fourstraight plays to get into the end zone, giving the Green Wave the halftime lead. Mitch Anderson kicked a 26yard field goal to cap FAU’s opening drive of the second half after the Owls marched 66 yards on 11 plays. From there, it was all FAU as the Owls earned 243 of its 331 yards of offense in the second half. Smith picked off Nick Montana on Tulane’s next drive, but the Owls were unable to capitalize. The junior cornerback then intercepted Tulane’s Devin Powell on the first play of its second possession of the half, returning it 11 yards to the Green Wave 20-yard line. After a penalty for holding, wide receiver Daniel McKinney threw a 30-yard touchdown pass to William Dukes to tie the game at 17. Two plays later, FAU’s Christian Milstead picked off Nick Montana and returned it 15 yards to the Tulane 28-yard line. That turnover set up Anderson for a 20-yard field goal to give the Owls the 20-17 lead. Smith intercepted Montana again on the next Green Wave pass attempt, setting up Fortner’s 24yard touchdown rush to put the Owls up 27-17. That score marked Fortner’s first touchdown since Nov. 10, 2012 against Western Kentucky. FAU’s final score came on a thirdand-ten, 49-yard touchdown run by Johnson, the longest touchdown rush of his career. The Owls’ defense allotted Tulane only six yards of offense in the fourth quarter to FAU’s 120.

FAU coach Carl Pelini Resigns, Now Wants Job Back

Florida Atlantic announced the abrupt resignation of second-year coach Carl Pelini on Wednesday following the coach’s conduct with an assistant coach that athletics director Pat Chun described as “illegal drug use.” ESPN.com first reported the move, which is effective immediately. Defensive coordinator Pete Rekstis also resigned, and Chun said in a news conference the decision was based on an incident that “solely” involved Pelini and Rekstis and was “unacceptable” to the athletics department. Chun noted that “no other football staff or student-athletes (were) involved”, and that Pelini will not be given the chance to address the FAU team. Pelini did not return a voicemail from USA TODAY Sports seeking comment. According to the Sun-Sentinel, Pelini was not present at the news conference but issued a statement saying, “I apologize for exercising poor judgment.” Although police escorted Pelini and Rekstis from the school’s football facility, Chun said the coaches’ departure was an “HR matter.” FAU received information about the allegations of drug usage by the two coaches on Monday. An investigation began immediately and Chun confronted the coaches on Wednesday, a day when law enforcement officials also visited the school’s athletic offices. “I apologize for exercising poor judgment,” Pelini said in a statement distributed by the school. “My greatest concerns at this time are for me family, the dedicated FAU players and my staff. I am confident that Pat Chun

and the University administration will continue to move the program forward.” Offensive coordinator Brian Wright will take over as interim head coach. Linebackers coach Jevan DeWitt will replace Rekstis as the Owls’ defensive coordinator. “Number one, I’m concerned for our football team,” Chun said. “Obviously, I’m disappointed in Carl and Pete, but my thoughts are more about our kids and our assistant football coaches and what’s going through their minds. This is a tough deal for kids and we’ve got to help these kids process this. They all looked up to these two guys and that’s a tough place to be.” Florida Atlantic was 2-6 to start to the 2013 season following a 3-9 finish in 2012, Pelini’s first year at the school. After a few days in the dark, Pelini submitted a retraction of his resignation in a letter to FAU in which he asks to be reinstated as FAU’s head football coach. Pelini alleges in the letter obtained by The Boca Raton Tribune and other media outlets that he was forced to resign by FAU athletic director Pat Chun against his will and that he never used drugs. Chun released a statement through FAU’s spokeswoman, Katrina McCormack: “I stand by my statement and decision from last week. We had ample evidence to support the charges that we confronted both coaches with. We have no further comment at this time.” Pelini also alleges in the letter that Chun did not ask him to resign for drug use, but rather that his resignation was “based on a failure to supervise [his] staff.” Pelini, in statements made to ESPN on Thursday, said he was told by Chun that his “denial of illegal drug use was irrelevant.” The former FAU coach also told ESPN that he “had recently become aware of a personal relationship between a staff member and a person close to the athletic department,” defensive line coach Matt Edwards and local realtor Allison Stewart. In his letter to FAU interim president Dennis Crudele, board of trustees chair Antony Barbar and general counsel David Kian, Pelini states that Edwards and Stewart had a “strong motive to have me removed from my head coaching position.” Pelini does not state the motive.

FAU Soccer Drops Final Road Match of the Season Florida Atlantic University’s men’s soccer team lost their final road match on Sunday, 6-1, against Conference USA opponent the University of Kentucky. The Owls were outshot by the Kentucky Wildcats 25-5. FAU (6-6-2, 1-6-1 C-USA) allowed the first goal for the Wildcats in the 34th minute when Kentucky got the ball in midfield and shot past goalkeeper Theo Jamilloux from the top of the box. Just three-minutes later, UK was awarded a corner kick that was shot to a defender who recorded the team’s second goal off a header. Failing to capitalize on its few offensive opportunities, FAU trailed Kentucky 2-0 at the end of the first period. The wildcats finished the first 45-minutes of regulation with a 12-1 advantage in shots and a 6-1 advantage in corner kicks. The Wildcats looked to improve their lead at the start of the second period as a UK forward beat FAU’s

keeper in the 46th-minute. FAU’s Jason Fitzgerald managed to gain possession of the ball attempting to put the team’s first point on the board but, shot wide of the net. The wildcats retaliated with four shot attempts, including a header, in the following eight minutes. In the 57th-minute of play, UK took the ball down to the endline where it was eventually shot low past Jamilloux at the far post. UK’s powerful offensive attack managed to collect a fifth goal seven minutes later shot from the top of the box. FAU attempted to close up their five-point deficit with a corner kick by Ronald Garcia in the 74th minute and a shot by Deniz Bozkurt in the 76th. Kentucky scored its final goal of the match in the 79th minute. Facing a shutout, FAU’s Deniz Bozkurt captured the ball with five-seconds left and shot it to Ronald Garcia who scored off a header bringing the final score to 6-1 Kentucky.

Pitchers Shine In First Game Of FAU World Series

BOCA RATON, Fla. - The $100 Billings topped the Hart Attacks 1-0 in the first game of the Florida Atlantic University baseball team's World Series on Wednesday at the FAU Baseball Stadium. FAU assistant coaches Rich Billings and Dickie Hart split the Owls' roster with a draft on Monday to determine their teams for the best-of-three series. Both teams recorded seven strikeouts and three hits, but it was the four errors by the Hart Attacks that proved to be the difference-maker in the contest. Ace pitcher Austin Gomber earned the victory for the $100 Billings, pitching 4.2 innings of shutout work. The junior struck out six batters and allowed two hits, throwing 42 of his 58 pitches for strikes. Junior reliever Reily Monkman earned the save, giving up one hit in the seventh and final inning of the intrasquad game.

Freshman Esteban Puerta drove in the game's only run, allowing Stephen Kerr to score an unearned run in the first inning. CJ Chatham earned the only extra-base hit in the contest with a double while Kerr picked up the team's only other hit. Junior Drew Jackson was tagged with the loss for the Hart Attacks, allowing one hit while striking out one in his 2.1 innings on the mound. Kevin Alexander sat five $100 Billings players down on strikeouts in just two innings of work. Freshman Cain Spangler was the only player in the game with multiple hits as he went 2-for-3 on the day. Brad Myott recorded the Hart Attacks' only other hit. "You expected these guys to pitch well," FAU Head Coach John McCormack said. "And a 1-0 game certainly backs it up. Both teams pitched great. One timely hit by Puerta and coach Billings came away with a win."

Beckham Picks Miami as the City For His MLS Team By: Pedro Heizer Former Los Angeles Galaxy star David Beckham has officially decided on Miami as the city for his Major League Soccer franchise, according to sources. Beckham, whose MLS contract had the option of paying a discounted rate of $25 million to start an MLS expansion team, has been flirting with a few possible cities during the past few months but has officially decided in Miami. Although nothing is set in stone, a source close to the situation has indicated that the decision by Beckham to bring MLS to Miami is “just about official” and now will only need to iron out the details with MLS. Beckham has a long way to go before his MLS Miami franchise can kickoff, but the first step is completed. Beckham now needs investors. In June, Beckham was seen with billionaire Marcelo Claure, the Miami-based founder of Brightstar Corp., as he toured Sun Life Stadium and FIU Stadium, and sat courtside with him at a Heat playoff game. Since then, Beckham has had subsequent meetings with him in Japan and Los Angeles. Aside from Claure, Beckham will most likely bring in more investors into the mix. Miami Dolphins owner, Stephen Ross has shown interested in bringing MLS to Miami; however another name being thrown in as a possibility is Italian, Alessandro Butini. After the AP broke the news of Beckham’s decision, MLS Executive Vice President, Dan Courtemanche released the following statement: “We know that Miami is one of the most passionate soccer markets in North America. We have met with David Beckham regarding ownership of an expansion team, and we look

forward to David one day owning an MLS club.” Upon the news of Beckham’s decision, a supporter group who has been on hiatus, The Southern Legion, has already been reborn. Despite the Miami Herald’s report that Beckham’s decision is premature and not final, 90 Minutes Strong has spoken to reliable sources who assure the decision is firm and MLS Miami supporters should expect an announcement from Beckham by the end of November. There are currently 19 MLS teams, and league commissioner Don Garber hopes to expand to 24 teams by the 2020 season. A 20th team is already in place to begin playing in 2015 after Premier League club Manchester City and its partner, the New York Yankees, paid an expansion fee of $100 million to launch New York City FC. Orlando City Soccer is on the verge of becoming expansion team number 21, leaving three spots left. One of the main reasons for the long wait is that Beckham is looking to raise several hundred million dollars of investment to fund the setup costs, including putting together the squad of players and building a stadium. The main sites being talked about as potential temporary stadiums for Beckham’s MLS franchise are Sun Life Stadium, and FIU Stadium in Miami (both of which he and Claure toured in June). There were reports earlier this week that Beckham is also considering Marlins Park as a temporary home, but if Beckham does go into business with Claure (who is on the FIU Board of Trustees), his MLS team will be able to play rent-free at FIU Stadium while their permanent soccerspecific stadium is being built.

Tampa Becomes Last Victim of the Graveyard in Lynn Men’s Soccer Victory

BOCA RATON, Fla. – Lynn University’s men’s soccer history begins in 1986 with a 1-0 victory over Tampa in its inaugural home opener. Flash forward to 2013 and the Fighting Knights end the celebrated tenure of the field known as ‘The Graveyard’ with a dominating 2-0 victory over the Spartans in the quarterfinals of the Sunshine State Conference Championship. Matthias Jaenicke and Anthony Desperito tallied a goal and assist apiece to help LU improve to 10-51 overall and advance to play No. 3 ranked, and second-seeded, Rollins on Friday at 4:30 p.m. on the campus of Saint Leo University. The Fighting Knights now boast an impressive 247-26-6 all-time record with an eye-popping 160 shutouts on the Lynn Soccer Field It was a first half to forget for the Blue & White as Tampa (6-83) was able to move the ball around and outshot them 6-3. Lynn did not attempt its first shot until the 30th minute but headed into the locker room with consecutive quality attempts as Charlie Anderson missed the right post off a corner kick header and Michael O’Neill launched a shot just off the crossbar before time expired. The Fighting Knights came out as Sports

a different team in the second half as they pressured on the offensive end immediately, resulting in a Jaenicke shot from the top of the box two minutes in. Lynn then struck while the iron was hot, netting the opening goal with 59:15 on the clock. Jack Winter started the play with a well-placed ball towards the back line as Desperito made a diagonal run through the defense. Desperito ran onto the pass and sent a low cross to the middle of the box. Jaenicke stood pat 10-yards out and with the keeper out of position, buried his shot for the score. The offensive pressure continued with a barrage of shots on goal but it was Desperito who added the nail in the coffin at ‘The Graveyard’ when he found the back of the net in the 83rd minute. Jaenicke beelined his way to the right corner and lofted a cross at the flag post over the Spartans’ defense. The ball onehopped at the left post and Desperito headed his attempt past the keeper. Kevin Shields made two saves while Tampa’s David Niepel logged four saves. A team-save by the UT defense kept Lynn off the board midway into the second half. LU outshot UT 13-7 and held a 6-3 corner kick advantage.
