Boca Resident Crowned 2013-2014 Miss Teen National Kelsey Janser, a Boca Raton resident and freshman at Vanderbilt University, was recently crowned 20132014 Miss Teen National Winner at their pageant in Orlando, Florida. She competed with 62 young women from across the United States and won on the basis of a personal interview plus poise and stage presence in casual wear and formal wear. Kelsey previously held the title of 2012 Miss Teen West Palm Beach/Fort Lauderdale. The judges were especially impressed with Kelsey’s strong academic record and her commitment to the community with more than 1,000 hours of volunteer service. Kelsey’s major community service projects include Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital in Hollywood, Florida where she started volunteering after her own stay in the hospital. “I love going to visit the children; I bring tiaras for all the little girls and stuffed toys for the boys,” said Kelsey. She also established a chapter at her high school for Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital’s Conine Clubhouse where since 2010, she’s been raising funds and collecting items for the home away from home for families whose children are being treated at Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital.

Sandy Grossman, Boca Resident, Acclaimed Sports TV Director, Dies By Rachel Cohen

Grossman said. “If there wasn’t an envelope to push, Sandy would create one,” said former Fox Sports Chairman David Hill, a senior executive vice president for News Corp. As Madden put it, “He had guts.” With producer Bob Stenner, Mr. Grossman guided the celebrated partnership of Summerall and Madden, first at CBS then after their move to Fox. The understated style of Summerall, who died last April, paired with Madden’s booming enthusiasm became the soundtrack of the NFL’s expanding popularity. “They created a behind-the-curtain team which equaled the legendary front-of-house team of Pat Summerall and John Madden,” Hill said. “Watch any NFL game, and you will see Sandy Grossman’s legacy. He was a legend.” He embraced watching game film as a director before that was standard practice. Madden recalled how Mr. Grossman began isolating a camera on linemen so the analyst could delve into the nuances of the game. All that preparation made Mr. Grossman like a successful defensive coordinator who’s ready to handle anything the offense brings, Madden said. In his case, that meant sharp, seamless broadcasts. “I’ll see some old games he did, and they still hold up,” Madden said. Mr. Grossman is survived by his wife of 51 years, Faithe, four children and eight grandchildren.

Sandy Grossman, who directed a record 10 Super Bowl broadcasts and spent more than two decades in the TV truck working with announcers Pat Summerall and John Madden, died Wednesday at his home in Boca Raton. He was 78. Mr. Grossman died of cancer, his son Dean said. “He could just make magic,” Madden told The Associated Press in a phone interview. When Madden, the former coach, watched film and practices to prepare for calling games, Mr. Grossman was right beside him. That homework paid off when the analyst would make a point on air and the director would immediately pull up the right clip to illustrate it. “His amazing directorial talents on the NFL truly distinguished him as one of the great directors in the history of sports television,” CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said. Mr. Grossman also directed 18 NBA Finals and five Stanley Cup Finals. He won eight Emmys. “He was a brilliant director and a thoughtful colleague,” Fox Sports President Eric Shanks said. “He mentored many of us here and throughout the sports TV industry, and we learned more from him than he could imagine.” His innovations included using music to go into the break during basketball games. After Mr. Grossman played “The Hustle” by Van McCoy, his son recalled, sales of the song skyrocketed, so the musician sent him gold records as a thank you. Visitors to his TV truck over the years included Richard Nixon and Oliver Stone, Dean

Verde Elementary art students created a banner to show their spirit for Florida Atlantic University’s football team. Their banner was on display at the REDBLUE FAU Spring game on April 5, 2014. It was selected as the most unique and creative by a distinguished panel of judges at halftime. For winning first place, Verde Elementary School and its students will: • Be awarded a pep rally at the school with FAU football coaches, play-

ers and spirit squad at the start of the 2014-15 school year, • Have its banner displayed at the Oxley Athletic Center on the FAU campus during the 2014 football season, • Be invited to attend a 2014 FAU football game at a special group rate where it will be recognized on the field. The students are very proud of their efforts and are looking forward to having the FAU coaches, players, and spirit squad on campus at the beginning of next school year.

to be spayed or neutered. She has worked with local vet clinics to assure that these wild cats are healthy before returning them to their colony. “I am incredibly blessed to represent an organization that is truly a ‘pageant with a purpose’,” says Kelsey. “Until my senior year in high school, I had never even thought of participating in a pageant. I hope to inspire others to try new things, challenge themselves, be passionate about doing their best and help make our community a better place.” A Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholar, Kelsey is majoring in Cognitive Studies and is the host for Vandy TV’s “Battle Bands.” As the Miss Teen National Winner, Kelsey will be making appearances as she continues her community service in Florida and around the country. Kelsey is a Cum Laude graduate of St. Andrew’s School in Boca Raton where she completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program.

At 100, She is Still A Class Act

It is almost impossible to have lived in Boca Raton for any length of time and not be introduced to Flossy Keesley. Outgoing, compassionate and extremely active in community affairs, in particular the arts, Flossy is without question one of our city’s most respected and beloved citizens. For most the past century (and that is no exaggeration), this patron of the arts has touched countless lives through her unyielding dedication to serving others. Whether in show business during her career as a dancer, singer and television personality, or her work in the community building coalitions to find solutions to improve the lives of local actors, singers, dancers and all kinds of show biz types, she has always found a way to make a difference. Over the years she has presented a number of concerts. She also is credited with launching two young bands, West Boca High School musicians The Vogans, and The Boca Boys. I remember talking to Flossy on the morning of her birthday last year. She said she planned to have a ``low key`` day. Now, that was after a three-day celebration for her big day. “I have no big celebration planned this year,” she told me on Wednesday. “I will have a few friends to drop in but besides that, it will be quiet.” Until she reminded me that she will be signing her newly released book, “Through The Footsteps of Time” at the Mizner Park Amphitheater on Friday. “That will be my big celebration,” she said in her trademark chuckle. I had the pleasure of first meeting Flossy and her husband, Nick, in 1994 when I was a reporter for one of the then dominant daily newspapers. The couple was so kind to me. Nick, who died in 2005, was a Hollywood producer who worked on the Dean Martin and Shirley MacLaine shows. He shared with me several stories some which was akin to mine. He told me how he worked for the N.W. Ayer Advertising Agency, producing radio shows and made $32 a week. Among the newcomers to radio that

he worked with in those days were Jack Benny, Ruth Etting, Bob Hope, George Olsen, the Mills Brothers and Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians. Flossy also taught me a lesson she learned as a newlywed in the early days of the Depression, which I practice today: “Putting aside a little money regularly, even if that meant only 25 cents a week and whatever they could put into the Christmas Club at the local bank.” In 1994, at age 80, she was pretty, cogent, clever, engaging and inspirational. I called her two days ago in preparation for this column and at 100, she is still lovable, kind-hearted and selfless with an uncluttered mind, which is linked to a history of caring and giving. Class and manners, goodwill and altruism have been her companions for 100 years. I cannot imagine living or working in this city and not spending some time with this magnificent lady who is ageless. The warmth in her personality, the love in her heart, the curiosity in her intellect, the affection of her friends, and the goodwill in her nature make her one of the most delightful people I have ever met. Last year, I attended the fifth annual Flossy Keesley Pathway to the Stars program, a free variety show held at Mizner Park Amphitheater for her 99th birthday. (By the way, Keesley is the woman of the fountain outside the amphitheater). And as I hugged her goodbye, I felt a surge of emotional enlightenment and accomplishment. I had just interviewed and hung out with one of the most interesting people in the world. And those who know me well know I am not impressed by stars or celebrities. The classic prose from Eleanor Roosevelt raced through my mind: “Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art.” Flossy Keesley is a classic work of art! On behalf of a grateful community, we wish Flossy a happy 100th birthday. Through you, God has blessed us all.

This is real love - not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:10

The Boca Raton Tribune EDITORIALS & LETTERS East/West Boca Raton, FL


Rude and Disruptive...or Respectful? There seems to be an epidemic of callous, disrespectful behavior in today’s workplace. Yet, strangely enough, such demonstrations many times are not penalized. Sometimes they are even rewarded! According to a study mentioned in an article in the prestigious Wall Street Journal, employers often pay more for rude and disagreeable employees. The study discovered employees difficult to work with actually earn, on average, 18 percent more than their more agreeable peers. Imagine investing payroll, taxes, benefits, training, and considerable time in employees, only to have them become disruptive by shouting at you in a staff meeting and slamming the door as they depart. Despite this potentially divisive impact within an organization, some executives allow themselves to be manipulated by intimidating, overbearing staff mem-

bers. But at what sacrifice? Disagreeable employees, according to another study, can exact an even greater cost to the organization. Uncivil behavior often the results in increased employee turnover. This could be because workers become upset by continual conflict; others might lose respect for superiors that fail to discipline acceptable behavior. “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you” is an old saying that needs to be revisited. Employers have every right to emphasize the fact that working for their company is a privilege, not a right, and self-centered, disruptive speech and behavior will not be tolerated. If you are an employer, hiring people that respect others and are agreeable is a better path. Employers need to make themselves aware of the temptation to become bullied into paying more than they should for rude behavior, even when valued talents and skills have con-

tributed to the company’s success are at stake. Appeasing employees that disrupt the organization and show no respect for others – especially those for whom they work – eventually proves destructive for everyone involved. Therefore, in hiring new staff – as well as conducting periodic performance reviews – stressing the importance of respect and cooperation should be an important part of the process. A wise supervisor looks for and promotes those who respect others and demonstrate humility in interacting with others. Here are some principles the apostle Peter offers in the Bible’s New Testament: Respect should be expected at all times. Demonstrating consideration and understanding to others should be a universal practice, regardless of a person’s position in an organization or their perceived “worthiness” of be-

ing respected.”Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king” (1 Peter 2:17). Respect for authority should not be optional. Some people would say, “I will show respect only to people that earn my respect.” From a biblical perspective, however, respect should be shown regardless of what the other person does. “Slaves, submit yourselves to your masters with all respect, not only to those who are good and considerate, but also to those who are harsh. For it is commendable if a man bears up under the pain of unjust suffering because he is conscious of God” (1 Peter 2:1819). The word “slaves” may sound out of place for the 21st century workplace, but the relationship Peter was referring to applies to that of employer and employee.

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Prepare Yourself for Positive Tasks No human has ever been born in the state of inadequacy, even though several give the impression of having been reared there, and never left it. It is not a geographical territory, but neither is it a condition to prevent good things that can happen and may be easily achieved! The world is filled with individuals born with some impairment which never needs to keep them from fulfilling noble deeds which truly benefit many others. If unable to speak, one can still wave a hand in a friendly greeting; if paralyzed, one can offer the gift of a smile

to refresh a weary soul. Countless more examples can be multiplied as graphic confirmations of this possibility! A friend of mine, many years ago, wrote something which stayed with me ever since. He stated that God has no wastebaskets, for He has a purpose and a plan for anyone, anyhow, anywhere, in impacting other lives in ways that no one could ever imagine. Sometime back, when she was still alive, I often visited a nonagenarian lady at her home. As we chatted, she commented that from where she daily sat in that

living room, she could observe many of the movements of neighbors dear to her. By looking through the large window in that living room where she spent most of her day, she could see when each neighbor left the house, whether to work, or to some other engagement outside the house. She used each occasion to ask God to protect them, to help them through the day, and to bring them safely back at their appointed time, each afternoon. It was a source of personal satisfaction for her, and of immense benefit to those neigh-

bors who were totally unaware of that daily discipline from their elderly neighbor, confined to a chair all. You also, regardless of age or condition, can accomplish far more than you imagine, for the sake of many others and for your own joy. The thing to remember always is that as long as there is life and breath, some significant accomplishment remains open to anyone ready to respond to varied opportunities ever present to attempt something for others!

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.

The Boca Raton Tribune COMMUNITY NEWS East/West Boca Raton, FL

A New YouFit Health Club is Coming to Boca Raton

According to a Boca Raton Tribune source, the Health Club which already has two locations in Boca Raton, is looking to expand to West Boca Raton. The new Youfit will be located in the Sandalfoot Plaza in West Boca Raton, near the Western Beef. Youfit is helping lead a trend of low-cost, $10-a-month membership gyms, which are squeezing out the middle market, with highend clubs and boutiques at the other end of the spectrum, the move to West Boca would directly compete with LA Fitness on Mission Bay Plaza on Glades and 441. Beyond South Florida, Youfit has other facilities across the state and in Georgia, Arizona and California. Fitness centers also are under construction in Tennessee, Texas and Colorado; more are in pre-construction stages in Kentucky, Oklahoma, Alabama and Mississippi, Berks said. He hopes to have more than 100 clubs open by the end of this year.

At each health club, a 30-minute circuit training area occupies one corner of the room, where class members sprint from machine to machine in one-minute intervals while green and red street lights mark starts and stops. Youfit clubs, which vary in size from 10,000 square feet to 28,000 square feet, typically are located in high-density neighborhoods or on major thoroughfares where access is easy and potential customers are numerous, like West Boca Raton. “People want to be where it is busy, but they don’t want to wait [for a machine]” said Youfit Health Club owner Rick Berks. “That’s what we factor into how to design a club.” In the spirit of not overcrowding its Health Clubs, the addition of a new club in West Boca will prove itself beneficial not only to members who call West Boca home, but to the numerous members who go to the packed Towncenter Mall location and have to wait to use machines and free weights. “We have a good amount of members who are from West Boca,” said an Youfit employee. “Opening up one in Wet Boca would be a smart move because now they won’t have to commute all the way to the mall to work out.” Construction has no begun as of right now, however pre-sale for memberships will begin soon and the opening date is TBA.

Let Jodi Help You

Busy Professionals Turn to Matchmaking to Find Love After trying some of the more traditional methods, and even after using some online resources, it can still be difficult to find the right person to start a relationship with. Jodi Meyer “I used to try Director/Matchmaker going out to a bar, Florida Singles and in my line of work, I tried meeting people, but that didn’t work out too much.” explained Steve a 58 year old sales professional, who has been single for the past year. “I’m not too comfortable just walking up to someone and asking if they’re available.” But that all changed, when he joined Florida Singles, a professional matchmaking service, that utilizes people rather than computers, to help members find the right person for them. “I thought I would get more success by being able to talk to someone directly, and say ‘this is what I’m looking for, this is what I want,’ and knowing that I would find someone with the similarities that I am looking for. I was sure my outcome would be more successful going to a professional,” he explained. “My experience with Florida Singles has been excellent, it has been very enjoyable, I’ve met a lot of nice people in the membership that I’ve dated. It is a relief to know that they are all there for the right reasons; they are seriously looking for a committed relationship. You’re not just picking someone out randomly, like when you meet someone

online,” he continued. “These are going to be compatible people that are more or less the same as you are.” Florida Singles has over 20+ years of matchmaking experience. They are a local company servicing singles in South Florida from Deerfield Beach to Vero Beach, with a heavy concentration of members in the Boca Raton, Delray Beach area. While serving as traditional matchmakers, Florida Singles does more than just send two people out for a date. The company meets and screens each member, provides compatibility testing and runs full criminal background checks to make sure their clients get a safe, worthwhile experience. “Our clients don’t want to leave this area of their life to chance anymore,“ says Jodi Meyer, Director of Florida Singles. “They want a formula that works. And we give them an opportunity to find someone who’s a fit, and not just settle because they have very few options in meeting compatible people.” Meyer said the Internet has changed the way the world works, and not necessarily for the better when it comes to how people interact. Places to which people used to flock in search of social interaction have been watered down because so many people stay at home and use the Internet to talk to others far beyond their neighborhood. “It has made socializing such an isolated sport,” Ms. Meyer explains. That leaves those searching for true companionship at the mercy of whoever got out of their seat to go out that night. But that’s a problem Florida Singles can help solve. “It’s a very safe and logical way to go,“

Ms. Meyer explained. “They don’t have to sit on a barstool, and it’s not just random dating. Our clients are busy professionals or retired professionals, and the last thing they want to do is go to a bar and waste time. Or even go online for that matter to meet someone with a lot of problems, married or a felon.” Searching online, of course is a very cheap and easy way out for people, but the drawbacks are numerous. “E-harmony and were a huge waste of time,” Steve said about his past experience. “I never got what I really wanted out of it. Somehow there was a communication gap through all of the emails and the matches that I had were never really what I was looking for or located way too far away to start a relationship.” “A lot of our clients never wanted to use the Internet because they want confidentiality. It was just not an option for them. They don’t come here because they can’t get a date, but because they don’t want to settle for the people they’re finding on their own. It is more about quality than quantity.” The Florida Singles experience starts by coming in and meeting face to face with Ms. Meyer for a one time consultation, so that she can get a feel for a client’s personality, and the kind of person that they are hoping to meet. You only have to come to Florida Singles one time and then all of your introductions will be made in your local area. “I felt very confident after the first 10 minutes of speaking with Jodi.” Steve recalled. “I picked up on the type of person she was, and how she presented herself and

the company and I felt very comfortable speaking with her. It was a very positive experience.” The company administers an extensive personality questionnaire, then finds out exactly what traits each client is looking for in a match. “It feels good to know that you should be meeting someone that is similar to what you’re looking for,” Steve explained. “It’s not electronic. This company hand picks from profiles, so it is real people matching real people.” Once you become a member, it only takes 7-10 days to receive your first introduction. “I figured it was about time that I made an investment in this area of my life.” says Steve. Of course, Meyer warned against expecting to find your soul mate after just one date. “The goal, she said, is to be picky and selective and find that person that is most compatible for you. Florida Singles will make sure that not only the two people are compatible, but also share the same relationship goals, saving our clients so much time.” And helping to turn that time and effort into results is Ms. Meyer, who has been doing this for almost 14 years. “In this day and age it makes sense to outsource this area of one’s life.” she said, and seeing the success that myself and Florida Singles has had throughout the years, has made it a very rewarding experience.” Florida Singles, 4440 PGA Blvd, suite 407, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410. 561318-7789.

Police Investigate Suspicious Incidents

The first incident happened Saturday, April 12 at about 8:30 p.m. The caller told officers that her 13 year old granddaughter reported an unknown male grabbed her as she was putting trash in the bins alongside the house. The granddaughter added that, as her granddaughter was walking up to the trash bins, she dropped some magazines and as she was retrieving them, she saw a black male in the back yard. The male was wearing dark clothing, gloves and a ski mask. According to the granddaughter, the male quickly approached her, grabbed her by the hips and pulled her towards him. The male then punched her several times in the stomach and started to lift her shirt. At this point the victim fought back, broke free and run inside the home. The victim

was not injured. Officers conducted a thorough search of the yard and neighborhood, but didn’t locate a suspect or anyone who had seen anything suspicious. A K-9 searched the area, but did not pick up a track. On Sunday, April 13 at about 11:00 a.m., the granddaughter again reported a suspicious male in the backyard. This person was a Hispanic male wearing jeans and a grey hoodie. Later that same day, at about 1:20 p.m., the grandmother called police again. She told officers her granddaughter saw the same Hispanic male in the backyard, but he was wearing a blue raincoat instead. Both times, officers and a K9 team responded to and check the area, without locating anyone or anything suspicious.

Bicyclist Killed After Being Struck by Minivan By Jason Schwartz

A 58-year-old cyclist was struck and killed while riding west of the city recently. Investigators said Steven B. Brown was riding north on Lyons Road near Clint Moore Road when he was struck from behind by a minivan driven by Marion Rosenstein. Brown hit the car’s windshield and was then thrown to the ground. Brown, who lived less than three miles from where he was killed, was riding in the designated bike lane, Palm Beach County Sheriff ’s Office investigators said. Rosenstein, 68, of Boca Raton, momentarily lost control and veered over into the

It is the second fatality involving a bicyclist in three days in the city. Bicyclist George Morreale, 66, of Boca Raton was struck and killed by a truck as he rode along Yamato Road near Interstate 95 on April 6.

Happy Birthday Flossy

A resident of Boca Raton for many years before moving to a penthouse in Highland Beach, she was married to radio and TV pioneer Nicholas “Nick” Keesely. She was a television icon herself, co-hosting TV’s first talk show on the old DuMont Network in 1948. Over the years, Flossy has supported a remarkable number of charities and sponsored events and stage shows to raise scholarship money. In a few days, she will celebrate her 100th birthday with the release of a book about the remarkable accomplishments, friendships, loves, family relationships and achievements she has experienced since her birth April 18, 1914, in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. On Flossy’s 100th birthday, the book, Thru the Footsteps of Time, will be available to the public for the first time. Members of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton will gather near “Flossy’s Fountain,” at the north end of Mizner Park in front of the Count de Hoernle Amphitheater, between 1 and 6 p.m. that day to sell copies of the book for $25. Proceeds will benefit Flossy’s Dream Foundation, which raises money to help students get scholarships to pursue degrees in television, radio production or communications. Flossy joined the Rotary Club of Boca Raton in 2011 and is the oldest member of

Boca Life & Arts

the local organization. Thru the Footsteps of Time was written by Dale King and his wife, Julia Hebert. Documented research was done by Bettie McMillan. The book was designed by Scott Simmons and published by Jerry Lower of the Coastal Star newspaper. Information and the collection of photos for the book were provided by Flossy Keesely. “We were honored that she approached us to write the book,” said co-author Hebert. “We had just completed a 4,000-word story about Henrietta, Countess de Hoernle, another Boca Raton philanthropist, for her 100th birthday program book in 2012. The experience with the Countess gave us the direction we needed for Flossy’s book.” The memoir, said King, runs more than 18,000 words and contains dozens of pictures culled from her personal collection. Bettie McMillan spent nearly a year finding and collecting photos and transferring them to disc. “I certainly enjoyed going through the material. It’s amazing that Flossy has been able to hold on to those things,” McMillan said. She recalled helping Flossy unpack boxes and suitcases filled with photos, some going back to the early 1900s and a few even earlier. Continue on page B5

Flossy’s Fountain “I love her to pieces,” says artist and sculptor Yaacov Heller, who crafted the statue/fountain of Flossy at the entryway to the Count de Hoernle Amphitheater in Mizner Park where she is depicted holding up a star with her beloved dog Schatze at her side (The pup was added a few years ago.) “There’s a reason her sculpture is reaching for the stars. Flossy has been a star maker,” both with her late husband, Nick, a TV producer in the 1950s and 1960s, and since his passing. “The stories and pictures which now fill her new book, Thru the Footsteps of Time include a highlight in her life which helped me to determine the “subject” for the piece I would create for this very special lady in the early 2000s. (Yaacov Heller). “She was co-host of the very first TV talk show broadcast on the Dumont Network in 1948 before NBC, CBS and ABC.” “Flossy is committed to raising scholarship funds to assist students in pursuing a degree in radio production, television and communications. She strives for excellence in her endeavors, and feels that the most gratifying aspect of her career is helping students to achieve their goals in the Arts.” She has produced her “Pathway to the Stars” show in conjunction with the Rotary Club and the City of Boca Raton. Her focus is on local talent and puts them on a big stage.”

Flossy-Mothers Day

‘Remarkable’ Flossy Keesely to Mark 100th Birthday with Memoir Release Continue from page B1. The photos were all scanned onto discs – and those discs will be available in the archive of the Boca Raton Historical Society. In addition, anyone who wants a copy of Thru the Footsteps of Time and is unable to get to the unveiling on April 18 can purchase a copy in the Fire Bay Gift Shop of the Historical Society, located in the Old Town Hall Building, 71 N. Federal Highway. McMillan said many documents and photos belonging to Flossy’s late husband, Nick, will be moved to the Library of American Broadcasting at the University of Maryland in College Park, MD. A number of them have also been reproduced in the book.

Nick Keesely was a pioneer broadcast advertising executive and producer whose business decisions not only made him successful, but helped define the careers of numerous stars, such as Dean Martin, Red Skelton, Ted Mack, Ed Sullivan and Danny Thomas. If an entertainer had a potential show, but needed a big sponsor, Nick was the man they saw. He, in turn, would sit down with one of his ad agency’s clients and decide whether the pairing would work. According to the March 13, 1963 edition of Variety, 11 TV shows that Nick bought for the networks were drawing an average 11.5 million viewers. Nick also gathered up a sponsor for The Dick Van Dyke Show. In fact, according to Flossy, Rob and Laura Petrie, the characters portrayed by Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore in the popular 1960s sitcom, lived in New Rochelle because that’s where Flossy and Nick lived at the time. Co-author King said he was “surprised that so little has been written about the lives of two such influential people” as Nick and Flossy. “We can pretty much guarantee that most of the material in the book is fresh and new, and people generally are not aware of it.” Nick and Flossy were married in 1932 and spent 67 years together before his death in January of 1999. Over the years, they lived in New Jersey, New York, New Rochelle, N.Y., California, Fort Lauderdale and Boca

Raton. Flossy moved to Highland Beach upon Nick’s death. She donated “Flossy’s Fountain” statue -created by Boca artist and sculptor Yaacov Heller -- to Mizner Park. He recently added a statue of her Yorkie, Schatzi. Flossy also organized and sponsored five “Pathway to the Stars” variety shows from 2009 to 2013 that featured experienced performers along with talented newcomers to the stage. Looking back on the past year, Bettie McMillan recalled that the work she did for Flossy was “one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done.” King and Hebert also enjoyed the work and looked forward to their periodic meetings with Flossy at her Ocean Boulevard condo which offers views of both the Intracoastal Waterway and Atlantic Ocean. “We could always count on her serving us cookies and her special mix of iced tea and ginger ale while she gave us material for her book.” “At the door, Schatzi would greet us,” King said. “And the noises made by Scarlett, her African parrot, could be heard coming from the kitchen.” “This was truly a labor of love,” said the authors of the book that took more than a year to complete. “We knew Flossy very well from her participation in community events. She is a legend who will be remembered by many Thru the Footsteps of Time.”

Marriage is Not Easy

Marriage is not easy. I say that with some authority as a two-time “loser,” as some people cruelly call divorced people. “Le Week-End” is a bittersweet comedy about a long-married couple trying to revitalize a 30-year marriage. It helps that the couple is played by Academy Award-winner Jim Broadbent and fellow esteemed British actress Lindsay Duncan (“Mansfield Park”). It also helps that Roger Michell (“Notting Hill”) directs a script by Hanif Kureishi (“The Mother”). Nick (Broadbent, master of the slow burn) is a college teacher at the end of a career. Meg (Duncan) is a take-charge woman who comes up with the idea of a getaway to Paris, where the couple had honeymooned 30 years previously. Nick is, to put it lightly, highly skeptical of the whole enterprise. It gets off on the wrong foot when the hotel they had booked sight-unseen turns out to be a dump. “It’s so beige,” Meg protests Nick thinks they should hop back on a train home, but Meg thanks the solution is to book a suite at a posh place and put it all on the credit card. The hotel is beautiful, but Nick can’t relax.

“It’s a brilliantly-designed machine for extracting all our money,’ Nick complains. On a chance encounter on the street Nick and Meg are recognized by an old friend of Nick’s named Morgan (Jeff Goldblum). Morgan is living the life with a beautiful, much younger new wife in a gorgeous apartment. Morgan became a best friend of Nick back in college. He clearly idolizes and idealizes Nick. The bitter truth will come out when Morgan invites Nick and Meg to a dinner party at his place. The conversation veers off track terribly, culminating in a withering tirade by Nick that shocks everyone. “Le Week End” will make you squirm at times as if rips away the pleasantries to reveal the resentments and failures beneath the façade. The main pleasure, if you can call it that, is to see perfectly delivered, cleverlyconstructed lines by first-class actors. If you hang on through all the unpleasantness there is an amusing twist at the end. It is not a happy ending nor tragic. It will make you think perhaps these people are made for each other.

Real Estate The Boca Raton Tribune

Tricks Of The Trade To Help You Get Top Dollar When Selling Your Home 10: Pricing it right Find out what your home is worth, then shave 15 to 20 percent off the price. You’ll be stampeded by buyers with multiple bids — even in the worst markets — and they’ll bid up the price over what it’s worth. It takes real courage and most sellers just don’t want to risk it, but it’s the single best strategy to sell a home in today’s market. 9: Half-empty closets Storage is something every buyer is looking for and can never have enough of. Take half the stuff out of your closets then neatly organize what’s left in there. Buyers will snoop, so be sure to keep all your closets and cabinets clean and tidy. 8: Light it up Maximize the light in your home. After location, good light is the one thing that every buyer cites that they want in a home. Take down the drapes, clean the windows, change the lampshades, increase the wattage of your light bulbs and cut the bushes outside to let in sunshine. Do what you have to do make your house bright and cheery – it will make it more sellable. 7: Play the agent field A secret sale killer is hiring the wrong broker. Make sure you have a broker who is totally informed. They must constantly

monitor the multiple listing service (MLS), know what properties are going on the market and know the comps in your neighborhood. Find a broker who embraces technology – a tech-savvy one has many tools to get your house sold. 6: Conceal the critters You might think a cuddly dog would warm the hearts of potential buyers, but you’d be wrong. Not everybody is a dog- or cat-lover. Buyers don’t want to walk in your home and see a bowl full of dog food, smell the kitty litter box or have tufts of pet hair stuck to their clothes. It will give buyers the impression that your house is not clean. If you’re planning an open house, send the critters to a pet hotel for the day. 5: Don’t over-upgrade Quick fixes before selling always pay off. Mammoth makeovers, not so much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles, cabinet hardware, make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.

4: Take the home out of your house One of the most important things to do when selling your house is to de-personalize it. The more personal stuff in your house, the less potential buyers can imagine themselves living there. Get rid of a third of your stuff – put it in storage. This includes family photos, memorabilia collections and personal keepsakes. Consider hiring a home stager to maximize the full potential of your home. Staging simply means arranging your furniture to best showcase the floor plan and maximize the use of space.

they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen.

3: The kitchen comes first You’re not actually selling your house, you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part of it is that you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may be a few thousand dollars to replace countertops where a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one high-end appliance

1: The first impression is the only impression No matter how good the interior of your home looks, buyers have already judged your home before they walk through the door. You never have a second chance to make a first impression. It’s important to make people feel warm, welcome and safe as they approach the house. Spruce up your home’s exterior with inexpensive shrubs and brightly colored flowers. You can typically get a 100-percent return on the money you put into your home’s curb appeal. Entryways are also important. You use it as a utility space for your coat and keys. But, when you’re selling, make it welcoming by putting in a small bench, a vase of fresh-cut flowers or even some cookies.

2: Always be ready to show Your house needs to be “show-ready” at all times – you never know when your buyer is going to walk through the door. You have to be available whenever they want to come see the place and it has to be in tip-top shape. Don’t leave dishes in the sink, keep the dishwasher cleaned out, the bathrooms sparkling and make sure there are no dust bunnies in the corners. It’s a little inconvenient, but it will get your house sold.

Really Married?

The Hope of Easter Hope can be an elusive concept, mainly because it encompasses such a wide range of desires. Depending on the day, you may catch yourself saying anything from “I hope the Marlins win” to “I hope my daughter gets into the college she wants to attend” to “I hope the biopsy results come back negative.” You hope for victories both small and large; for trivialities to go your way and for life changing circumstances to bend in your favor. What you may or may not realize, is that all of these day-today hopes are grounded in the ultimate hope you and I have for a future that is brighter than we have yet to imagine. In the days after Jesus’ crucifixion over 2000 years ago, his family, friends and followers thought all hope had been lost. It had died along with the man they’d believed to be the Messiah. Little did they know that three days later, on the very first Easter, Jesus would roll the stone away from the entrance of his tomb and step out to offer a level of hope never before known to man – the hope of peace and joy in this life and of victory over death. Jesus continues to offer his resurrection hope to us today. This hope goes far beyond what you and I are likely to wish for on a daily basis. It is not only the living hope of his continual presence, but also the expectant hope of an eternity spent with God in heaven. As the Bible says, “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!

In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade,” (1 Peter 1:3). Because Jesus lives, you and I can walk in expectant hope of the abundant future we long for. Easter is a perfect time to begin discovering more about the hope Jesus offers. This Easter Sunday at The Journey Church, I will be kicking off a five-part teaching series on hope with “#Hope: Finding Hope When I Feel Like Giving Up.” See our ad in this edition for service times and details. Plan to join me to learn how you can be filled with hope both in the midst of today’s trials and for a happy, fulfilling future. See you Sunday! Nelson Searcy is the lead pastor of The Journey Church in Boca Raton. This 3-year-old church meets at Boca Raton Community High School (I-95 and Glades Rd). Join Nelson for two special Easter services this Sunday at either 9:30am or 11:00am. For more, visit Nelson is also the author of 11 books and severed for ten years as a pastor in New York City before moving to South Florida. Each person who visits The Journey Church on Easter will receive a free copy of his latest book Unshakable: Standing Strong When Things Go Wrong, on which this article is based.

Q: My wife and I were married four years ago. She was and is a disaster. I knew that she had been married once before. An hour after our wedding was official her younger sister accidentally mentioned to me that my new wife had been married twice before our marriage. I thought it weird that my new wife had lied to me, but did not think about it until I was talking to my divorce lawyer last week. I asked him whether or not the “lie” could help me in the divorce case since one could say that the marriage was fraudulent. My lawyer said that it probably would have little effect on the divorce, but suggested that we run a national search to determine how many times she had been married. I asked him it that could help me and he replied that it would help only if she had forgotten to divorce any of her husbands. Our search uncovered four marriages in three states. We are looking into each to determine whether or not she had gotten a divorce. My lawyer told me that if we found that the wife was legally married when we

married I was “home free.” He told me he was doing some additional research. Do you agree with his conclusion, why? Was her conduct criminal? A: If your lawyers investigation can prove that your wife was still married to another when you and she went through a marriage ceremony you and she are not lawfully married. Your married would be determined to be “void.” If you are not legally married none of her typical marital rights exist. She would have no right to alimony, property distribution or right to have you pay, or help pay for the divorce. The judge would issue a final judgment indicating her non-married status and find that she had no rights. Your marriage would be void even if the failure to divorce was a mistake, caused by her former husband lying to her about his getting the divorce. Criminal liability for bigamy would be determined by an investigation by your local police and State’s Attorney.

Indiana Mayor Tells GEO Group They’re not Welcome in his Town By CRA News Service

The Mayor of Hobart, Ind., has written a letter to the GEO Group suggesting it find another location outside of his city for its possible immigrant detention center, according to a member of the city council. “I’m not going to sit up here and talk negatively about GEO,” Mayor Brian Snedecor told the audience at First Unitarian Church in Hobart on Sunday. “(But) I think we’ve just sent a message to them that they need to look elsewhere if they want to build a center.” The mayor says in the letter, which was read during the meeting, that he told Boca Raton-based GEO from the beginning that the company should reach out to the community and build a “positive rapport,” especially as some citizens would likely be against the project. That never happened, however, and the company has never shared details of the project with the community, he says in the letter. Also, the city has also had to tell the company it needs to either destroy or repair the former church. “The uncertainty of your intentions coupled with your failure to engage our community has led to a loss in confidence in GEO,” the letter says. The meeting was called a day after news leaked of the letter. The (Munster) Times and the PostTribune report that GEO Group last November bought 40 acres - the former St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church property - in Hobart, about 6 miles southeast of Gary, but hasn’t released any details about its plans for the site. GEO has said it wants to build an immigration holding center at the site but it has not filed to rezone the property. There’s no current formal proposal from the federal government for any

such facility in the region. The mayor wrote that the city would continue to treat GEO fairly should the company proceed with the process to build a detention center but that the city would not support it. The mayor suggests that an area closer to an airport or highways and away from a residential area would be better for the proposed center. “...The administration will not be an advocate for the project, and will oppose it,” Snedecor says in the letter. Pablo Paez, vice president of corporate relations for GEO, said the federal government does not have any formal proposals for a facility in the area right now but that company is still interested in Northwest Indiana because of its infrastructure and workforce. “The GEO Group is invested in Hobart because we believe there are opportunities to promote economic development and create high-paying union jobs in Hobart,” Paez said in a statement. Snedecor did tell the audience Sunday that he has spoken with some people who support the detention center or at least think that it should go through the full process with the city. However, he added that when he spoke with local attorney John Bushemi, who is representing GEO Group on the project, Snedecor told Bushemi he would not hold off on taking that stance. “I told him no, that letter was sent out and that’s where I stand,” he said. Thomas DuBois, who led the meeting, said he was excited to hear the news, especially as people in other parts of the country have also recently protested against other prisons and detention centers owned by GEO.

Local Business Owner Considers Himself A Doer

With an investment of his own and a lot of enthusiasm, Clodoir Nunes decided to share his experience and ideas with the fast growing Boca Raton’s population, specially in the Downtown and Mizner Park areas. “ I felt that opening Pro Floors’ show room right here was a great opportunity. I didn’t think a lot. Boca Raton is a very diverse city. People here love to renovate. And I can help!” A word of someone, like him, 16

years in this industry, knows what he’s saying. Tile, kitchen cabinets, laminate, marble, wood and carpet of all the best available trade marks in the industry, like Olympic, Stone Henge, Lotus, Elume and Manhattan Glasses, you name it. And if you don’t find your favorite brande name, Clodoir will find it for you. Get there before the 30th of April, to get a 20% off in all products and services. “ I am sure Pro Floor’s clients will be very happy with my customer service style. It’s totally one by one. I sell, I install with the help of a qualified staff. And…I love this city!” So, it makes sense to stop by at Pro Floors an Interiors located on 67, South Federal Highway, Boca Raton.

First Lacrosse Season Comes to an End with 19-5 loss to No. 6 Tampa

By Olivia Coiro

The inaugural season of men’s lacrosse came to an end for Lynn University in a 19-5 loss to sixth-ranked Tampa on Satur-

day night. The Fighting Knights finish the season 1-10 overall and 0-5 in Sunshine State Conference action. Tampa’s win gives the Spartans the first-ever SSC Regular Season Championship finishing the regular season 12-2 overall and 5-0 in conference play. Pregame ceremonies honored Lynn’s two seniors, William Port and Joey Bacarella. Lynn took an early 1-0 lead in the first quarter when Brian Kiel scored with 12:45 left on the clock. UT scored three goals over the next 12 minutes to lead 3-1 at the end of the opening frame. Justin Fitzpatrick scored a fast-break goal in the opening seconds of the second quarter to extend the Spartans lead to 4-1. Kiel fired a shot from

the top of the crease to cut Lynn’s deficit to 4-2. Tampa scored five unanswered goals to end the half with a 9-2 lead. Danny Egan scored to open the second half while Tyler Janvrin recorded his teamhigh 11th assist of the season for the Blue & White to trail 9-3. At the end of the third quarter UT had extended its lead to 14-3. Egan scored two more goals in the final 15 minutes for his second hat trick in as many games. Taylor Ferrino made 20 saves in goal for Lynn while grabbing a team-high ten ground balls before Jason Conner came in making three saves of his own. Tampa was led by Kyle Hemrick who scored a

game-high five goals while Jake Rooney and Conor Whipple each had four goals. Whipple had a game-high six points where he dished out two assists for the Spartans. Trevor Calleja won 16-of-21 face-offs for Tampa while Andrew Failla earned the win between the pipes with six saves. Kiel finished the season with a team-high 15 goals to become the first career leader in goals in a season for the Fighting Knights. Janvrin led the first-year squad in points with 11 goals and 11 assist for a 21 total points. Ferrino made 191 saves as Lynn’s starting goalkeeper while Chris D’Angelo won 55 percent of face-offs at the ‘X’.

No. 2 Men’s Golf Tied for First at Sunshine State Conference Championships By Olivia Coiro

Lynn University’s second-ranked men’s golf team carded a 282 on the Par 72, 7072-yard course at Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club to finish the first round tied for first place with top-ranked Barry. Elliott Whitley shot a career-best 68 to sit tied for first individually with Saint Leo’s Ryan Gendron and Barry’s Berry Jole. Whitley got off to a fast start on the second hole by reaching the par-5 549-yard hole in two shots and sinking a 15-foot putt for eagle. He made three birdies over the course of the day while shooting just one bogey on hole 15. He closed on hole 18 with a five-foot shot for par after his tee shot found the fairway bunker. Keith Greene and Martin Cancino both

turned in a 71 after the first 18 holes of their first Sunshine State Conference Championship. The duo combined to make eight birdies while Greene eagled hole 13. Seniors Ernesto Vitienes an even par 72 and Paul McPhee carded an 80. After missing two birdie opportunities on holes 16 and 17, Vitienes made a 20-foot birdie putt on hole 18 to keep Lynn tied for first place on the day. Lynn’s team 282 is the second lowest 18-hole score of the season for the Fighting Knights. The Blue & White and Bucs hold a two-stroke lead over Saint Leo, who turned in a 284. Nova Southeastern is in fourth with a 293 while Florida Tech carded a 295 for round out the top-5. Eckerd and Rollins are tied for sixth after each team shot a 297 while Florida Southern finished one stroke behind with a 298 and Tampa posted a 311 to sit in last.

An open invitation to everyone in West Delray Beach America is in the process of transitioning to modern, Internet-based communications networks. The Federal Communications Commission has launched a pilot program to ensure that all Americans can benefit from access to modern communications networks — and the technologies, services and devices that these networks enable. AT&T has proposed to include the West Delray Beach area of Florida as one of two communities in America that we work with to showcase these modern networks. The trial AT&T outlined for the pilot program will occur while the traditional phone network is still in place. This trial, and your participation, will help us ensure that modern networks can deliver the strong, reliable connections you depend on to communicate, get information and entertainment, and keep you safe and healthy. If you would like to learn more, please join us at the AT&T town hall meeting listed below. With your help, we can ensure communities across America have safe, reliable access to the services modern networks deliver.

We want to hear from you! Please join us at this town hall meeting. Refreshments will be provided.

Golf Life in boca By Stan Moore

Know Your Golf Golf courses are often called “links” or “the links”, but a links course actually refers to a particular kind of golf course that requires a particular style of play. Links courses are the original golf courses, found in Scotland centuries ago. They were built on the sandy dunes of Scotland’s east coast and got the name “links” because this was the land that “linked” the sea to the more fertile land used as farmland further inland. Perhaps the fact that it was not being used for farmland was why it was chosen for golf. Because they’re built on narrow strips of land, links courses are usually laid out with the first nine holes going straight out from the clubhouse and the last nine coming sraight back in alongside them. Today they’re built all over the world. The most famous links course in the United States is Shinnecock Hills Golf Links on Long Island in New York.

Strikers Open Up 2014 Season with 2-0 Win The Fort Lauderdale Strikers defeated Ottawa Fury 2-0 in the opening match of the 2014 NASL season in front of 3,105 fans at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Strikers led for majority of the match on an early goal from Rafael Alves before Darnell King ensured the Strikers claimed all three points with a late strike in the second half. The game started at a fast pace in the first-ever meeting between the two sides. Neither side was too familiar with their opponent but both teams looked to attack the opposition and get on the board first. It took Alves just 13 minutes to score the first goal of the 2014 NASL season. The big Brazilian found himself unmarked at the back post on Anderson’s driven low freekick. He slid home for his first goal for the Strikers in 15 appearances. Strikers goalkeeper Oka Nikolov was very active in his Strikers debut. The German-born goalkeeper was one of the main acquisitions by the Strikers in the 2014 offseason and finished his first match with the Strikers with four key saves. Chris Nurse went close to doubling the Strikers’ lead with a header at the end of the first half. His effort went just wide of the post. Richie Ryan had a chance to level the score on the stroke of halftime but was denied by Nikolov. Alves was forced off with an injury at the halftime interval. Justin Chavez moved back into defense and substitute

Manny Gonzalez stepped into midfield. The Strikers came out of the dressing rooms the stronger side and pressed for a second goal. The insurance goal finally came in the 80th minute on a Strikers counter attack through King. Ottawa were exposed at the back after throwing numbers forward and a smart through ball from Marius Ebbers found King surging down the right. The right back attempted to unselfishly play a square ball to Anderson inside the box, but the low cross was cut out by Fury FC goalkeeper Devala Gorrick. King pounced on the loose ball and sent a vicious effort into the back of the net. With the win, the Strikers claim first place in the NASL standings. Justin Chavez and Darnell King selected to The NASL Team of the Week Solid defensive performances by both Darnell King and Justin Chavez earned them selection in the NASL Team of the Week for the first week of the 2014 Spring Season. Chavez was solid at midfield for the first half and then dropped to the back line in the second half when Rafael Alves had to come out due to injury. King had a strong defensive match, helping to keep visiting team Ottawa out of the net. He then added a goal in the 80th minute, all but assuring the win for the home team.

MLS Stadium Plans Not Going According to Plan In New York and Miami

On Monday, the New York Times broke the news that Major League Soccer’s newest MLS franchise, New York City FC (NYCFC) — which is slated to begin play in 2015, will be playing its first three seasons in a baseball stadium. NYCFC is set to publicly announce that the expansion franchise will play from 2015 through at least 2018 at Yankees Stadium. Since the team was announced last May, many questioned where New York’s second franchise would play. In January, the team told MLS officials that they would have a plan in 30 days. Approximately 104 days later the team has their temporary solution, a baseball stadium. This delay hurts not only the team but also the league. Because of NYCFC’s failure to finalize a solid stadium plan, prime marketing and advertising opportunities were wasted, not to mention they are one year behind in season ticket sales. However, that’s not the worst part of this whole situation, Major League Baseball and MLS seasons run concurrently. Yankee Stadium, a place that was designed as a baseball-only facility, does not have the designated width for soccer, which makes the pitch narrower than normal. In 2013, when Manchester City played Chelsea in an exhibition match, grounds crew worked around the clock to replace the infield with temporary grass for the match. And now the grounds crew will have to do this from March-October since there are 81 baseball games, and 17 soccer games. Situations in New York aren’t looking

very good. And on the other side of the coin, David Beckham’s MLS dream has hit yet another road block this week when a group called the Miami Seaport Alliance, led by former vice president for government relations for Royal Caribbean, John Fox, took out a full page ad in The Miami Herald newspaper that states although they support MLS Miami, they believe there are other sites more suitable for the stadium because a stadium in PortMiami would pose a risk to jobs, cruise and cargo operations and “the port’s promising future.” As we all know, Beckham and his group have said numerous times that a stadium in PortMiami is the ideal situation, but they are also looking at a piece of land near Marlins Park. Although Beckham has said time and time again that the stadium would be built with private funding, the Miami Beckham United LLC is seeking a state subsidy that could amount to approximately $40 million in State subsidies over a timespan of 20 years. While MLS has specifically told Miami, Atlanta, and Orlando that they will only get a franchise if they get the stadium, which Orlando and Atlanta have obliged, the league is simply allowing New York’s second team to play at a baseball stadium for three years without a solid stadium plan in place. It makes you wonder why MLS can’t just give Miami the franchise and let them play at FIU Stadium, a college football stadium that is better suited for soccer than Yankee Stadium.

FAU Baseball Blown Out on Sunday, Fails to Sweep Charlotte Series By Wesley Wright

This season has not been kind to the men of FAU Baseball. Sitting at 17-15 going into this weekend, the Owls of FAU Baseball looked to begin the process of righting the ship by triumphing in a series versus the Charlotte 49ers on April 11-13. The Owls won the first two games of the series, even shutting out their opponent on Saturday, before losing 11-1 on Sunday afternoon. Game 1: FAU wins, 3-2 Runs in the fifth and sixth innings tied the game at two and a walk-off single by Brendon Sanger secured a win for the home team. The hit was Sanger’s only of the game. Bo Logan picked up the win — the combined efforts of he and Austin Gomber resulted in no earned runs on the day. Game 2: FAU wins, 8-0 Jeremy Strawn pitched the greatest game of his career, surrendering just three hits in a shutout. At the plate, the Owls provided Strawn with ample run support, scoring five runs in the first two innings. Five FAU players had two or more hits on the day.


Game 3: Charlotte wins, 11-1 Just as they seemed to be picking up a bit of momentum, FAU undermined some of its previous progress with a paltry showing on Sunday. It was pitcher Brock Hudgens from Charlotte who dominated this time around, surrendering just two hits in a strong eight innings. FAU pitcher Drew Jackson lost his first game of the season, behind a sputtering Owl offense that yielded just two hits. From April 16-23, FAU will play two games versus the Miami Hurricanes and three versus their rival, Florida International University. They beat the UM Hurricanes 5-2 on Feb. 19.
