By: Nikki Colonna Aaron Shapiro grew up in six different cities in South Florida and spread out his talents and education as he studied at Broward College, Palm Beach State College and eventually finished up his studies at FAU as a grad student and a teaching assistant. Shapiro never knew exactly what he wanted to do when he grew up; his career possibilities ranged from an athlete to a standup comedian. Unconsciously, “I knew that I belonged in front of people,” said Shapiro. As he got involved with FAU’s athletic program, his talent using his voice to announce flourished. He began covering events that ranged from sporting events, to banquets and pep rallies. After spending three years in the world of Communications, which he majored in at FAU, as well as a minor in sociology, Shapiro began to gain muchneeded experience with his voice, which helped him boost his confidence in the art of announcing. By being able to announce at various FAU sporting events, Shapiro developed his communication skills, annunciations and public speaking techniques, which were a huge influence on his path to becoming the voice of the Florida Panthers. Being at FAU Shapiro “felt prepared to run small or big events,” such as the University of Miami vs. FAU football game on September of 2015. “Games like that helped me get ready for the bigger crowds that I would

face down the road,” added Shapiro. He has always been a firm believer that the crowd itself is a light to his fire. He feeds off the energy that the people bring; when they cheer and get excited, he is able to as well. Being faced with such a leading role using his voice, naturally, nerves are a factor. Shapiro takes those nerves to positively affect his performance. “Everyone gets nervous, even individuals from the top of their craft,” said Aaron. “It is important to remember that it is about [the fans], not me. They fuel me. I am able to relax and announce perform from their presence.” In his spare time apart from announcing, he strives teach and inspire others as a full time Speech and Communication professor at Miami Dade College. He intends to continue to teach about activism, public speaking and motivational speaking. As a professional public Speaker, he travels to local high schools, such as Booker T. Washington High School and Miami Senior High School, to talk about communication competence and skills and academic success. He also has been involved as an Emcee for everts throughout South Florida including Red Bull Wings for Life and Gumbo Limbo Nature Center. He also was able to Emcee celebrity basketball games featuring countless NBA stars including local Brando Knight of the Phoenix Suns. Shapiro is more than happy with his opportunity to work with the Florida Panthers and plans to stay and learn as much as he can as well as to hype up the Panthers fans to the best of his ability.

Rick Allen of Def Leppard to Showcase His Art Collection in Boca Raton By: Michael Demyan Rick Allen of Def Leppard will be exhibiting his “Drums for Peace” art collection Saturday, March 18 at Wentworth Gallery in Boca Raton during a stop on the North American Art Tour. The drummer first showcased his art in 2012. It included 300 pieces, which were quickly sold out. In 2013, he unveiled more art with the title “RockOn-Canvas.” Now he will be making appearances at Wentworth Gallery locations in both Fort Lauderdale and the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton. The newest collection includes numerous pieces of art such as paintings, jewelry and drums, which will be available for purchase. Each buyer will also be presented with a limited-edition commemorative “Rock It” artwork, signed by Allen. A portion of the earnings from the event will be donated to the Warrior Resiliency Program, which is sponsored by the Raven Drum Foundation, a charity Allen co-founded with his wife, Lauren Monroe. “We are honored to present this extraordinary collection in our galleries throughout the country, and to continue our efforts and our tradition of giving back to the men and women who serve our nation so selflessly,” Christian O’Mahony of Wentworth Gallery said. “Our goal is to bring exposure to Project Resiliency through artistry.”

Allen became a member of Def Leppard at the age of 15 in 1978, but in 1984 he lost control of his car while driving in the United Kingdom, which resulted in a serious accident and the loss of one of his arms. The drummer did not let that stop him however and continued his career. He also decided to use his tragedy to be an inspiration for others by reaching out to cancer patients, military veterans and children with special needs, among others. Through his work, he has received two Humanitarian Awards from Best Buddies of California, along with the Wounded Warrior Project’s Carry It Forward Award. “My life has been a journey of transformation and my art reflects the many facets of dreams and perceptions that have shaped me to be the person I am today,” Allen said. “Each piece has a story and a connection to my life from my roots in England, my life changing car accident, journey to America, travels around the globe and to my deep connection to Wounded Warriors and their struggle to heal.” Allen will first be attending the event at Las Olas in Fort Lauderdale before arriving at the Town Center Mall in Boca Raton at 6 p.m., where he will stay until 9 p.m. It is suggested that those who wish to attend RSVP by calling the Wentworth Gallery at 561-338-0804. Admission is free for registered guests.

Boca McDonald’s Reopens with First ‘Customer Table Service’

By: Nikki Colonna Popular fast food restaurant, McDonald’s just got more convenient and more technologically advanced. Customers are now able to order their food through a touch screen, self operated kiosk located inside. Orders are placed and then quickly brought to the customers’ table using a locator device. Though ordering at the counter is still available, this fast and easy method speeds up the waiting process as well makes for a pleasant experience. The workers can interact at the table to assist and serve in any way necessary. “I think that the new self-order screens have been really good for business and help people get in and out fast if they need to; you get to skip the lines,” said Kenneth Brown, McDonald’s Location Assistant Store Manager. “Also our new modern look attracts more and more families to come sit down to eat.” These recent changes are planned to eventually spread through all

locations. At the moment, McDonald’s location on Fifth Avenue Shoppes Plaza (2140 N Federal HWY) is one of the only featured places with such a new serving method. The screen kiosks are not the only new addition to the reopened McDonald's, there are also a modern look to the inside as well as a double-laned drive through which is open 24/7 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Customers have seemed to accept and appreciate the new additions to the fast food hot spot. “I have used the kiosk screens twice now and I really like it,” said Gina DiVentura, customer. “It is really nice to come in here with my little one and have a meal inside the new looking restaurant and it's a lot cleaner.” The self-order and independent method of ordering, paying and receiving table service takes fast food to the next level. Fast food is still fast but can also be a sit down place that is enjoyable as well.

Virginia Snyder: Left a Legacy in South Palm Beach County, Was Influential in my Career On Monday, I celebrated once again, another birthday. It was another memorable one in many ways. I had been anticipating the respite - my first in many years - and while I vowed not to check my email, something spurred me to do so. The email, datelined March 20, bore the subject, Virginia Snyder. My former colleague Carol wrote, “C. Ron, Virginia Snyder has passed.” I thought, “Why did this have to happen while I am away?” But I quickly caught myself. While we love Virginia, at 96, she lived a long and fruitful life. Furthermore, it was God’s plan to call her home on my birthday. We all will remember Virginia as being a longtime private investigator, well known for her relentless determination to help the oppressed and improve her community. The most important thing in life to her – at least in her later years – were making sure the less fortunate in Delray Beach were treated fairly, her friends and the completion of a documentary on her life. Also high on her list was finding the person who poured a hot liquid on Melissa Elizabeth Daniels, a homeless woman, in 2014. Daniels, 41, later died and since then, there was hardly a week that Virginia did

not prod me to “find the culprit.” I would be remiss if I did not share some of the things that made her so special. When I came to Delray Beach as a cub reporter in the late 1980s, Virginia Artrip Snyder and her late husband, Ross, were among some of the first people to welcome me to this then sleepy ocean side enclave. I recall having lunch at Virginia’s historic Cathcart House, built in 1902 near the southeast corner of South Swinton and Atlantic avenues. I found her to be a kind and loving person who was as beautiful and genuine on the inside as she was on the out. What I cherished most were the lessons I learned from this award winning reporter turned private eye. Virginia had her pulse on the community. I spent so much time at the Snyders’ home, that one of my former colleagues jokingly dubbed it my Delray Beach downtown bureau. She had a nose for investigating difficult and challenging cases and a penchant for seeking justice especially for the underdog. She also had a caring heart for people, especially the indigent. In fact, the classic stereotype of a reporter as being an undetached observer did not fit Virginia. She was so active in her community that on March 14 1968 she and

a group of women at her Unitarian church founded the South County Neighborhood Center in Boca Raton. That organization evolved into the Mae Volen Senior Center. She also was instrumental in founding the Florence Fuller Day Care Center and AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse) in Delray Beach. She had a story behind many of the big ones she wrote. And even at 96, her memory was as solid as a bank safe. One of my favorites was while acting on a tip - which she was a magnet at attracting - she wrote an 11-part expose about the inhumane conditions at the South Florida State Mental Hospital. I also understood her disdain for the then local police department. She later tempered her rhetoric after a change of leadership. Virginia was a master of coining phrases and weaving words, and I wanted to emulate her. She shared many invaluable techniques of gathering information and building sources, many which were priceless throughout my career. When two local police chiefs complained to my bosses about my reporting, and one even maintained an investigative file on me, I was frustrated – not fearful. It was Virginia who gave me the impetus to continue forging ahead. She believed failure

was never an option. “C. Ron, you are all the people and the few good patrol officers have. You can’t quit now because those damn bastards would win,” she once told me with no wavering as she imparted her directive. In her later years, Virginia wanted to remain involved because she felt “sitting home in a rocking chair makes you get old quickly.” So she often spoke to my youth mentoring program. In December, she was thrilled to serve as one of the judges of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Oratorical contest. The following day, she said how happy she was listening to those “bright and articulate little boys and girls.” Last year when a documentary on her was being produced, I was honored to be one of the sources she recommended. One of Virginia’s wish was for us to author a book together. I promised her I would make time to sit still once I return from my vacation. In retrospect, I know that God does not make mistakes. I think he had a plan for us when he called her home on my birthday. Virginia, thank you for the memories; they will forever live on in me.

POSITIVE LIVING By Dr. Synesio Lyra, Jr.

Don’t Stop Growing As Long As You Live! Human learning has no limits, nor is it confined to a school setting. It’s good when a child starts going to school, reaching as many levels as possible, but it needs not stop when the highest academic level has been reached. It can stretch beyond that context in order to bring a type of satisfaction that adds to the excitement of living, regardless of age. In the case of some, formal education may entail college, graduate school, and even post-graduate studies. Nevertheless, the emphasis here is in the importance of making learning a life-long activity, whether formal or informal. The idea is to maintain a sense of curiosity which can be observed on many fronts as well. Reading with regularity is one of the exciting possibilities here!

March 24 - March 30, 2017

For a long time, I have observed the habit with friends I admire, each time we have breakfast, lunch, or dinner together, of inquiring what have they been reading lately, and what impact has that book or essay had in their life. Depending on what it is, and to what extent my personal curiosity is truly excited by the response, I annotate the title and, at the earliest possible moment, I order it for myself and read. In many ways my large, personal library, has increased through the years by this practice, beyond countless more volumes I chose for myself by other means as well. Learning is not to be limited only to school time alone. At school, at any level, we receive tools, we are stimulated to associate issues and things, we learn how applicable what we acquire is to life and work,

besides other benefits that formal schooling promotes and provides. Yet, personal thinking is the ultimate objective – the ability of developing ideas learned into new levels! Furthermore, at school one is obligated to follow a curriculum previously established, which is basic to much of all future learning. And it is precisely here that one’s curiosity needs to continue on its own, seeking new resources, appropriating new disciplines, and experiencing the benefits which immediately become ours, and are applicable to varied sectors of our human operation. We live at a time when science and technology are offering humanity unprecedented benefits to enrich lives and encourage associations between multiple areas of knowledge. Those who take rightful advan-

www.bocaratontribune.com

tage of such possibilities grow, while those who feel they’ve learned enough already, shall only remain static or miss exciting opportunities which come with any form of learning. The purchase of books, visits to a local library, attendance at interesting lectures and seminars, listening or watching significant talks on CDs or DVDs are only few of countless, available sources for increasing personal knowledge which brings individual growth and immense pleasure. Formal schooling may have given the necessary tools to participate in a profession or career. Continuing, personal searches can offer other types of knowledge that will make life more exciting, as we grow in it, and continue producing for the benefit of humankind!

Rotary Club Boca Raton West Announces Essay Winners The Rotary Club of Boca Raton West held their Award Party for the Dictionary Project Essay Contest on Saturday, March 11 at Logger’s Run Park in West Boca Raton. For the past five years, The Rotary Club Boca Raton West has been trying to make third grader’s lives easier, by bringing together three local schools, Coral Sunset, Waters Edge, and Del Prado as all third grade student in those three school receive their own personal dictionary. The Dictionary Project begins in September, near the start of the school year, with members of the Rotary Club going to the three schools and speaking to the kids about the importance of dictionaries, and the essay contest that they will participate in. Students from Del Prado Elementary, Coral Sunset Elementary, and Water’s Edge Elementary, all had an opportunity to write an essay on Soccer. The Boca Raton Tribune, Ultimate Soccer Store, Boca Raton Football Club, Barcelona Elite Boca Raton, and ReMax all sponsored the Dictionary Project and were all part of the Award Party. One student from each school was chosen and won a Kindle Fire. Below are the winning essays and photos of the event:

All about Messi By Emma Sandkovsky Water’s Edge Elementary School Messi plays on the Argentinian and the Boca soccer team. Messi is my favorite player. He is number 10 on both teams! He started playing professional soccer at age 11! Messi lives in Argentina, he is married and he has two kids that are boys! Messi is a forward player. In the past Messi has scored many goals. I recognize Messi right away when he is playing the game. Like me Messi speaks Spanish. He scored many goals against many teams. Since Messi is so good I

want to play like him. Messi was born on June 24, 1987 in Rosario, Argentina. He won an Olympic gold medal! He also won Six Ligas, two Copas Del Rey, five super Copas de Espanha, 3 UFEA Champion Leagues, 2UEFA Super Cups, and 2 Club World Cups. He is also the sixth youngest player to score a goal in a World Cup game! His nickname is “the Flea” because of his speed and ability. Messi loves to listen to Samba and Cumbia music. He has a foundation to help children with their education and their health. Messi is the first soccer player in history to win 4 FIFA games. I think Messi is the best player because he is really marvelous at soccer.

All about Soccer By Merrick Todich Coral Sunset Elementary Soccer is now a famous sport because many people play it, and there are many good players that are really famous. Also some teams are also famous. Soccer started in England in the 1800 and then more and more people started playing it in different countries. Do you know where the first world cup was played? Well I do. It was played in 1930 in Uruguay. When people play soccer most of the time they have to get rid of the ball quickly because there could be someone coming after you and you have to kick to one of your team-mates before the guy steals the ball. In this world there are many

good soccer players. Here are some: Messi, Ronaldo and Ibrahimović. These are really good people who play soccer. These athletes are professional players. They have practiced for a long time before they were a professional soccer player. All around the world soccer is actually called football. We all know what football is, but people who speak different languages call it football because in soccer you use your feet and you can’t use your hands, because soccer means you use your feet. Soccer is a fun game, but it can also be a challenge. In conclusion we all know soccer is fun and like I said sometimes it is a challenge, but all through everything, it a fun sport.

Soccer Rocks By: Benjamin Flores Del Prado Elementary

Did you know that soccer is considered the national sport in more than 100 countries and that every weekend billions of soccer fans watch it either on TV or in a soccer stadium? Soccer has been in my veins thanks to my entire family has been playing soccer since many decades ago; truly, it is my biggest passion for I practice almost every day. No doubt, no matter which language you speak or which country you come from, soccer is inside our hearts. To begin with, my mother always tells me that I have started to love soccer since I was in her belly because I used to kick her so much that she would think I could become a soccer player. Everybody in my family plays soccer. May father have been playing since he was as little as I am now. He is always telling me that in Peru, where my family is originally from, soccer is everyone’s passion, and many times the Peru national team has played excellent games worldwide. Also, my mother loves soccer too. She started to play soccer in college and always says, “It is never too late to practice a sport”. Secondly, how can I become a great soccer player and improve every day at every game? My mommy always says, “School works to develop my intelligence for academics; after that, it is Soccer Time! Then to improve, you can practice with an academy or with a family member, do some drills like quick pass 1-2,

www.bocaratontribune.com

juggling, and ball control too. At the field, the position I play in is usually offense and also sometimes defense. Last game, I was running up and down the field with a lot energy; then, my friend tried to score a goal but the goalie blocked the shot. Then, I got the rebound so I took a powerful shot, the goalie could not block it, and next I shouted GOAL! Most definitely, I must tell you that soccer is the most beautiful sport in the whole planet Earth. Wherever I go in my city and other cities too, I find children and adults having fun no matter which native language they speak: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, German, Creole, Chinese, Japanese, etc. Last summer, we traveled to Peru to visit my family after a big while. One day, we went to a park and some kids invited me to play a pick-up game without knowing me at all. We had a blast! It did not matter if I spoke Spanish or English because we created great plays and celebrated awesome goals. Soccer really unites us all in one unique language. Finally, I would like for everybody to understand why I love playing soccer so much, and also why millions of fans enjoy so much even watching it on TV: Soccer unites families, friends, cities, and better yet, whole countries all over the world. So, let me give you this advice from the bottom of my heart; get a soccer ball, gather friends, and start playing right away for you will find friendship, happiness, sportsmanship, but above all GOAL!!!

Two Females Sought in Jewelry Thefts

Boca Raton Police detectives are looking for two women responsible for two separate high-end jewelry thefts that happened last fall. The first theft occurred on October 24 2016, but was not immediately discovered, at Neiman Marcus, 5860 West Glades Road. After reviewing surveillance video, Neiman Marcus security saw an employee showing two females numerous pieces of jewelry. At one point, one female distracted the employee. Meanwhile, the second suspect took a Borgioni diamond bracelet and walked out of the store, while the first suspect continued to speak with the employee. The second theft happened on November 26 at Mayor's Jewelers, 6000

West Glades Road. An employee told officers that two females entered the store and looked at various items before asking to see engagement rings. The employee took out a collection of rings. One suspect tried on one ring, while the other suspect looked at the holder containing the other rings. One suspect said she needed to get her husband, and both suspects walked out of the store. The employee then looked closely at the rings and saw one ring had been replaced with a fake diamond ring. The surveillance video showed the same two suspects. The suspects are both black females, heavyset, one suspect 30-40 years old, with short hair; the second suspect 50-60 years old wearing a pink wrap on her head during both thefts. If you have information about these crimes, or recognize the suspects, please call Detective Mitzi Gama at (561) 620-6234 or Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at (800) 458-TIPS.

When it comes to heart disease the most effective treatment is preventing it in the first place. Most of us are familiar with the main risk factors of smoking, high blood pressure, a diet rich in cholesterol and saturated fats, obesity and inactivity. However, despite our best efforts in reducing these risk factors heart disease still occurs. So how does a person know if they have heart disease? The most common manifestation of heart disease is angina, which is generally described as a crushing, squeezing, pressure-like (“someone sitting on my chest”) deep chest pain. The cause is reduced blood flow through the coronary arteries, which supply oxygen to heart muscle. The pain may radiate into the arm, neck, jaw or back and give a sense of uneasiness. Sometimes the only symptom may be nausea, sweating, stomach pain (“indigestion”) or shortness of breath. Often the symptoms are brought on by emotional distress or physical activity. Of note, certain groups of people may not have the “classic” presentation of chest discomfort. Diabetics may have alterations in nerve function that can blunt the feeling of chest pain. Women and elderly patients also may present with atypical forms of chest discomfort. Many times heart disease can be silent and people may develop signs and symptoms related to a damaged heart such as shortness of breath or coughing

while lying down and swelling of the legs as seen in congestive heart failure or palpitations, dizziness or passing out related to cardiac arrhythmias and valvular heart disease. An important group not to be overlooked is people with peripheral vascular disease, usually manifested as pain or weakness in the legs with walking, who may have heart disease that is asymptomatic. One last point is that sometimes coronary artery disease can be discovered at a very early stage by utilizing a CT scan to measure a coronary calcium score. Calcium is an indication of plaque buildup in the arteries. People often ask, “How does a person know if they’re having a heart attack?” The symptoms we discussed for angina are the same as in a heart attack only with angina they are short-lived and relieved by rest within a few minutes. With heart attacks they last much longer. The elderly are more likely to experience a general malaise, fatigue or confusion as the presenting symptoms of a heart attack. The bottom line is only your physician can determine what is right for you, and don’t delay if you’re experiencing any of the aforementioned signs or symptoms. The content on this website is for informative purposes only. It is not meant to treat or diagnose any symptoms or illnesses. Should you have any health related questions, you should contact your health care provider.

When was the last time you forgave someone for a wrong they had done to you? When was the last time you went to someone else and asked for their forgiveness? These can be challenging questions, because among the many things we are asked to do in today’s business and professional world, forgiving and being forgiven are often among the most difficult. So difficult, in fact, many people choose to avoid them entirely. We hang onto grudges and nurse hurts rather than attempting to reconcile relationships. Instead of requesting forgiveness, even if we realize we have said or done something wrong, we ignore it, hoping the offending party will forget over time. C.S. Lewis, one of the great thinkers of the 20th century, summed it up well when he observed, “Everyone thinks that forgiveness is a lovely idea, until he has something to forgive.” He might well have been saying that when it comes to forgiveness, it is more blessed to receive than to give. Veteran consultants and executive coaches know a recurring issue their clients must confront involves forgiveness. Failure to forgive can destroy partnerships, leadership teams, even entire organizations. It might range from something simple, such as unkind words, to doing something in anger that we later regret, to total failure to fulfill a major business commitment. It can be easy to say, “forgive and forget,” but extremely hard to do. Often, to forgive feels like letting someone off the hook for wrongdoing without making amends. Instead, we decide never to forget the harm they have done to us.

The problem is, we can become victims of our own unwillingness to forgive. Offending parties may not be aware of the pain we harbor, they may not care, or we may have lost contact with them, leaving no opportunity for reconciliation or restitution. What then should we do about forgiveness? The Bible offers sound advice on this matter: Be willing to forgive even more than necessary. Talking to His followers, Jesus dismissed the “eye for an eye” vengeance approach for correcting wrongs. Instead, He urged being the “bigger person” in the conflict. “But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if someone wants to sue you and take your tunic, let him have your cloak as well…” (Matthew 5:38-40). Consider how much God has forgiven us. In offering His model prayer as a guide, Jesus put special emphasis on forgiving others. “Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors…. For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:12-15). Failure to forgive can plant seeds of bitterness. Even if feelings are justified, being able to forgive can free us from a form of “emotional cancer.” “Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you”(Ephesians 4:31-32).

As Huck Finn himself puts it, “Big River” is “complicated trouble and complete joy.” “Big River” is a musical adaptation of Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” with music by Roger Miller and book by William Hauptman. The Slow Burn Theatre production of this 19th century tale of trials and tribulations runs through April 2 at Broward Center for the Arts. Tampa born and bred Ricky Cona stars as irrepressible Huck Finn, who has come into a considerable sum of money after an adventure with his best friend Tom Sawyer. Huck has no mother and his “Pap” has disappeared. He is staying uneasily with the Widow Douglas (Anne Marie Olson) and her overbearingly pious spinster sister, Miss Watson (Erin Pittleman). The time is just before the Civil War in St. Petersburg, Missouri. The role of Tom Sawyer was played by understudy Cameron Jordan opening night after an accident benched David Matthew Klein. Tom Sawyer is above Huck in social standing, and he already knows how to read and write. It is Tom Sawyer who is always cooking up complicated schemes that get the boys in trouble. Cameron Jordan acquitted himself well on such short notice. He also played his regular roles of Ben Rogers, Hank, and a young fool from Arkansas. Two things intervene to interrupt Huck’s “civilization.” First he learns Widow Douglas is considering selling her slave manservant Jim (Brian Maurice Kinnard) for a much-needed $800. Secondly, his crude, drunken Pap Finn (Troy J. Stanley) returns after a year’s absence and de-

mands the $6,000 in gold Huck and Tom have put in trust with Judge Thatcher (James A. Skiba). Huck genuinely fears his father and deeply cares for Jim, so he decides to fake his death and take off on the river of the title on a raft in search of Cairo, Illinois and eventual freedom for Jim. Roger Miller was no Cole Porter, though he won a Tony for Best Score for this show. His songs tend to the country honky-tonk. His best-known is “King of the Road.” Most of the songs serve to advance the story. Some, such as “Muddy Water” and “Waitin’ For The Light To Shine,” have an anthemic gospel quality, beautifully harmonized by the 20-member cast. Ricky Cona has a fine tenor as Huck, but it is Brian Kinnard who really rattles the house as Jim. His distaff counterpart is Kendra Williams who plays the small role of Alice’s daughter, yet lights up the house every time with her heartfelt wailing. Leah Sessa also has a small part but a large presence as innocent Mary Jane Wilkes, who is harassed by the lecherous “King” (Matthew Korinko) and his sidekick The Duke (Victor Souffrant in fine comic fiddle). The comic apex of these amoral con men is “The Royal Nonesuch” of complete nonsense. With a six-piece band tucked away under the stage and muscular, athletic choreographer Patrick Fitzwater, “Big River” is big fun that just keeps rolling along. Tickets are $47-$60.

sports Owls Racing Takes Second at Formula South Invitational By: Kelsie Weekes

Owls Racing, Florida Atlantic University’s Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) racing team, recently took home second place at the fifth annual Formula South Invitational hosted by Kennesaw State University Motorsports in Marietta, Ga. The team, competing with its OR-16 racecar, placed second in acceleration and endurance and sixth in skid pad. The team’s second place overall finish put them ahead of other teams such as the University of Florida, Georgia Tech and the University of South Florida. “Owls Racing continues to grow and succeed because of the knowledge and skills of returning members that gets passed down each year,” said Marco Cheraso, president of the club team. “We work hard, critique our work, make changes and come out stronger every time.” Six members of Owls Racing made the trip to Georgia to compete, including Obrien Lavin, Jeron Bornstein, Seth Chapman, Thomas Strickland, Joshua Mesnick and Mathew Burgos. The rest of the team stayed behind to continue work on OR-17, the team’s newest racecar. Along with Cheraso, those team members included Halle Mayne, Stephen

Lyons, Austin Licata, Daniel MorishitaHorner, Chris Branfield, Steve Gaillott, Steven Stanfield, Mitchel Hardan, Jason Reyes, Patrick Brandon, Dylan Kovar, Frederick Meyer, Alexis Ruiz, Shaun Swannick, Nate Cadet, Trent Ksionek, Richard Nelson, Sil Schoonman, Max Welnitz, Alex Conrad, Blake Lewend, Romulo Peraza, Michael Simpson, Gabi Zamojski, Bradford Davis, Melanie Maldonado, Matthew Quintieri and Christopher Spreadborough. “I continue to be impressed with the success of Owls Racing,” said Oren Masory, Ph.D., the team’s faculty advisor and a professor in FAU’s Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering. “The work that the students do for the club is extracurricular and they do not receive any academic credit for it. This talented group recognizes the value of hard work, and more importantly, teamwork. I look forward to seeing what they accomplish at the 2017 FSAE race." Owls Racing will head to Michigan in May to compete in Formula SAE Michigan, the largest and longest running Formula SAE event for undergraduate and graduate students. FAU is one of 120 teams competing in the event from May 10-13 at Michigan International Speedway.

FAU Softball Coach Joan Joyce Gets 900th Career Win

By: Michael Demyan The Florida Atlantic University softball team took the victory at Western Kentucky on Sunday, March 19, which gave head coach Joan Joyce her 900th career win. Before becoming the head coach for the FAU Owls, Joyce pitched for all but a few years of her softball career with the Raybestos Brakettes in Connecticut. She dominated from the mound with a lifetime record of 753-42 and a 0.09 ERA. Joyce broke numerous pitching and batting records, which included 18 consecutive all-star selections, 42 victories in a single season and a .467 batting average in 1971. During exhibition games, she even struck out Major League Baseball Hall of Fame inductees Ted Williams and Hank Aaron. In 1994, Joyce was named FAU’s first softball head coach and has been the only coach the team has ever had. Throughout all of her success as a coach however, she had no clue she was approaching the milestone and gave the credit to her players. “I honestly didn’t even know about it until after the game, but it’s just a testament to the players we’ve had here over the years,” she said. Joyce led the team in their inaugural 1995 season to a 33-18 record, which netted her the A-Sun Coach of the Year Award. Two years later, the program started an incredible run of eight consecutive Conference Championships and seven NCAA Tournament appearances. The team struggled in 2012, marking their first year with a sub-.500 record and was followed with another the next year, but in 2014, the Owls started

to regain their previous form. Last year, they finished the season at 51-9, which is the best win-loss record in the team’s history. They also captured their 11th Conference Championship and 12th NCAA Tournament appearance. Sunday’s game saw a dominant performance from Tatum Buckley, who was just named the Conference USA Pitcher of the Week. She improved her record to 3-2 after pitching a complete game, only allowing a run on three hits. FAU first got on the board in the third inning. Carolyn Rosa scored on a base hit by Emily Lochten after pinch running for Lauren Whitt. Delaney Rickey followed with a double and Mia Olson walked to load the bases, but a pop fly ended the threat. The Owls’ big inning came in the fifth due to defensive blunders from WKU. With one out, Lochten and Rickey hit back-to-back singles and Lochten scored on a throwing error from WKU shortstop Brittany Vaughn. With two outs and two runners in scoring position, Alex Miller hit a ball by the first baseman, who was charged with an error, which brought home two more unearned runs and extended the lead to four. In the seventh, Buckey was just two outs shy of the shutout when WKU catcher Taylor Proctor hit a solo home run to put her team on the board. Buckey was able to keep her composure and retired the next two hitters to close out the 4-1 win. The win improved the Owls’ record to 20-10 and they are now 3-0 in C-USA. Not only was the win the 900th for Joyce, but it was also the 900th for FAU’s softball program. They will now be returning home for a doubleheader on Saturday, March 25, which begins a three-game series against Charlotte.
