Get Your Kicks
Soccer fever is running rampant in the aftermath of the World Cup,
and this is one bandwagon you’ll be happy to catch your kid a ride on.
The mission of the KBSC Soccer Program is to provide a wholesome,
well-organized environment in which to teach soccer skills, teamwork
and good sportsmanship, as well as to contribute
to the general health and social well-being of all
participants. Currently, there are 3 KBSC programs.
The Pee Wee Program is aimed at kids aged 3 & 4,
and gives them a basic introduction to the game
while focusing on fun and coordination. KBSC’s
Intramural Program has teams for kids aged 5-17.
Team sizes are limited to 10, so every kid gets a
chance to participate fully and improve their tactical
abilities. Finally, the most competitive kids can try
out for KBSC’s Travel Program, where top players
compete against teams from other clubs. For rates and other information
about signing up, visit the official Key Biscayne Soccer page on Facebook
or email KeyBiscayneSoccerClub@Gmail.com.
End of the Road
Many people in unhappy marriages think their
marriage is no different than anyone else’s. They
rationalize and think others also argue, or that
it’s normal for sex to become less interesting. In
a 1980 report by Peterson & Zill, 9 areas were
found to be the most important for couples to
work at in order to have a good marriage: 1.)
Money 2.) Parenting 3.) Sex 4.) Relationships
with extended family and friends 5.) Religion
6.) Household responsibility and gender roles 7.)
Substance abuse including alcohol & drugs 8.)
How to spend leisure time 9.) Career & job-related
issues. A healthy marriage may be so-so in 1-2
of these areas, but if there are serious issues
in 3 or more, the marriage is defined as high-
conflict. Getting help from a neutral professional
in the form of couples’ therapy can help save a
marriage, but both partners need to be committed
to the process. After several sessions of coaching,
homework assignments and real genuine sharing
of their feelings, couples often begin to see the
light at the end of the tunnel. My main goal is
always to keep a family together, but if there’s
truly no hope and a spouse wants to end the
marriage, I highly recommend the Collaborate
Approach, a family law process enabling parties
who have decided to end their marriage to
work with lawyers to reach an agreement that
addresses their needs and those of their children.

16 Hunt King
The loudest animal on Earth is the
blue whale, whose calls can reach
up to 188 decibels and be heard for
hundreds of miles underwater. The
runner-up isn’t your mother-in-law —
it’s the Howler Monkey.
Forget hounds — during the reign of
Kublai Khan, the Chinese used lions
on hunting expeditions. The big cats
were trained to catch animals like
wild bulls and bears, disabling them
until the hunters arrived.
It’s not just science fiction — giant
squids can weigh up to 2.5 tons and
grow up to 55 feet long. Their eyes
alone can be over a foot in diameter.
Not bad for something without a
