City has new alert system
CodeRED system replaces Nixle in Woonsocket

WOONSOCKET – The city has
launched a new mass emergency
notification system designed to
alert residents of public safety
threats, parking bans, dangerous
weather, missing persons and other
vital information.
The CodeRED system replaces
another technology known as Nixle
which had been in place for about
two years.
“This is the future,” Emergency
Management Director Tim Walsh
told an audience of about 40 residents Tuesday at Kennedy Manor,
urging them to sign up.

Texas governor sends Guard troops to border
By CHRISTOPHER SHERMAN
and WILL WEISSERT
The Associated Press
AUSTIN, Texas — Gov. Rick
Perry is deploying up to 1,000
National Guard troops to the TexasMexico border over the next month to
combat what he said Monday were
criminals exploiting a surge of children pouring into the U.S. illegally.
Perry, a vocal critic of the White
House's response to the border crisis
who is himself mulling a second presidential run, said the state has a responsibility to act after "lip service and
empty promises" from Washington.
"I will not stand idly by while our
citizens are under assault and little
children from Central America are
detained in squalor," the governor
said.

Boston who had been dating

fiancee. Lloyd's bullet-riddled body was found in an
industrial area not far from
Hernandez's North

Massachusetts, home.

Hernandez on the day of his
arrest.
The defense had called
Hernandez's full team
records necessary to prepare
for trial, and said they may
contain critical information
about the former player's
state of mind.
Phelan, meanwhile, had
accused Hernandez's attorneys of being on a "fishing
expedition." He said the
scouting reports contained
trade secrets and were irrelevant to the case. He also
said the Patriots had offered
the defense the option of
reviewing, but not copying,
the psychological assessment summary.
The team wanted the
defense to get the assessment from the company that
wrote it, which provides
character and mental assessments to professional sports
organizations.
During the morning proceeding, which dealt with
scheduling issues, Judge
Susan Garsh set Jan. 9 as the
first day of jury selection in
the murder case. She said
jurors would be selected
from a pool of 1,000 people
brought in over several days.
Hernandez, who is from
Bristol, Connecticut, has
pleaded not guilty, in a separate case, to the murder of
two men in Boston in 2012.
He's being held without bail.
that the National Guard
could take people into custody if need be.
"We think they'll come to
us and say, 'Please take us to
a Border Patrol station,"
Nichols said.
Messages seeking comment were left with the U.S.
Customs and Border
Protection.
Perry bristled at suggestions from some Democratic
state lawmakers and business groups that his move
means Texas is militarizing
is southern border.
Still, Cameron County
Sheriff Omar Lucio said he
didn't know if troops would
be coming to his part of the
border and questioned what
good they would do if they
did.
"Those people are trained
for warfare, not for law
enforcement," said Lucio,
whose county includes
Brownsville. "I think the
money would be better spent
if they would give it to the
local law enforcement that is
close to the border."
More than 3,000 Border
Patrol agents currently work
in Texas' Rio Grande Valley,
but Perry had repeatedly
asked President Barack
Obama to send the National
Guard to the border amid an
influx of immigrants.
Since October, more than
57,000 unaccompanied children and teenagers have
entered the U.S. illegally —
more than double compared
to the same period a year
earlier. Most have been from
Honduras, Guatemala and El
Salvador, where rampant
gang violence and intense
poverty have driven tens of
thousands of people outside
their borders.
Obama administration
officials have said that the
flood has slowed in recent
weeks, with Border Patrol
agents in the Rio Grande
Valley finding fewer than
500 children last week compared to as many as 2,000 a
week last month.
Perry, though, said that,
for years, the federal government failed to secure the
border and suggested that
criminal gangs could be
exploiting the recent surge
to make things worse. He
said more than 200,000
criminals in the country illegally had been booked into
Texas jails since 2008, many
for drug-related offenses but
also for homicides and sexual assaults.
As governor, Perry can
deploy National Guard
troops, but that means Texas
has to pay for it. An order
by Obama would have
meant Washington paid.
Still, Perry and other top
Texas conservatives said
they expect the federal government to eventually reimburse the state.
"Texans are willing to put
the boots on the ground, but
we expect Washington to
foot the bill," said Attorney
General Greg Abbott, a
Republican who is favored
to replace Perry in
November.
Perry isn't seeking reelection but hasn't ruled out
a 2016 presidential campaign.

Lorraine Robin signs up for the CodeRED alert system after city officials launched the program at Kennedy Manor on Tuesday.
Alert
only as good as the number
of people who sign up for
notifications, and the general public never seemed to
embrace Nixle in a big way,
said Walsh. After about two
years, he said, fewer than a
thousand residents signed
up for notifications. Nixle
also proved to be less flexible than officials expected
based on the company’s
sales pitch.
Walsh said CodeRED is
a so digitally nimble that it
can alert thousands of residents all at once or zero-in
on just a few who need a
certain piece of information
in a flash. For example, he
said, if a high-risk crime
suspect were known to be
hiding in one house in a
certain neighborhood,
CodeRED could send an
alert to residents of all the
surrounding homes while
skipping over the house
where the suspect was
located.
A growing number of
communities in Rhode
Island have joined the
CodeRED network, which
costs about $6,000 a year,
according to Walsh. Also,
he said the Rhode Island
Emergency Management
Agency’s official alert system is CodeRED, which
means all city residents
who sign up for it will also
receive any state notifications, making for a more
complete, efficient
approach to public safety
notifications.
Chief Shatraw told residents the old system was
terrific at spreading the
word about public safety
emergencies, “but this one
is so much more sophisticated.”
Residents can receive
alerts on a mobile phone,
landline and by e-mail.
The city activated the
system moments before the
ceremonious launch at
Kennedy Manor. Plays said
additional signup events
will be held at the other
high rises in the weeks
ahead as part of an effort to
promote the new system.
“I signed up on my cell
phone, my home phone and
my e-mail,” the mayor told
residents. “It’s a very good
tool to have the information
you need so you can be prepared.”
Storm notifications,
missing persons, emergency
evacuations, temporary
parking bans, flushing of
fire hydrants, street sweeping and trash collection
schedules were among the
few reasons the city might
resort to sending out a
CodeRed alert, the mayor
said, adding, “It’s not
always bad news that would
travel to you.”
Walsh said CodeRed is
compatible with the state’s
Reverse 911 system, which
has a database of all citybased phone numbers. In
the event of a pressing
emergency that every city
resident needed to know
about, CodeRED could
convey the information
even to residents who aren’t
signed up with it. For those
who do sign up, providing
their personal phone numbers and other private information, the system is completely secure.
“No one gets to know
this information,’ he said.
“This is a computer bank
that only the emergency
management notification
system gets to know
about.”
For computer users
savvy enough to download
them, mobile apps are
available to enable
CodeRED subscribers to
receive alerts even when
they’re on vacation or otherwise out of town.
Residents can sign up by
logging onto the city’s web
site,
www.ci.woonsocket.ri.us,
or by contacting City Hall
at a special telephone number established to handle
information about
CodeRED: 401-597-6615.
Additional links can be
found at the web sites for
the Woonsocket police, fire
and emergency management web sites.
With help from the
state’s Reverse 911 system,
Walsh said the city intends
to conduct a “test” of the
CodeRed system next
Tuesday. The event, which
will send out a message
from the mayor to every
phone in the city, is part of
a campaign to spread the
word about CodeRed and
sign up as many people as
possible.
Walsh projects it will
take four to six months to
have the system fully activated. He said there were
be a strong, sustained push
to sign up CodeRED subscribers and he seemed confident that the results will
far outstrip participation in
the now-terminated Nixle
system.
“We WILL do better,” he
said.

has the option to accept nocost health care coverage
paid for by the taxpayers.
Even more outrageous, is
that a legislator who
declines that perk is entitled
to a refund from taxpayers
in addition to his or her
annual salary and travel
expenses.”
“Let me be clear,” Fung
told reporters in the
Statehouse Rotunda, “public
service is not self-service.”
He noted that many lawmakers hold full-time
employment and they
shouldn’t make taxpayers
foot the bill for what he
called “these exorbitant
perks.”
“In the early 1990’s,
Rhode Island voters wisely
approved a constitutional
amendment to eliminate
pensions for state legislators
in response to a growing
scandal involving special
pension deals for the politically connected,” the mayor
noted. “With health care
costs lurking as the next
great threat to our state’s
budget, this costly perk may
be implicated in an entirely
new fiscal crisis for our
state. I urge the voters of
Rhode Island to once again
speak up and demand
reform to end this affront to
hard-working, middle-class
families.”
With a pension reform
law for state employees currently being challenged in
court, Fung said health care
costs are “another ticking
time bomb” poised to blow
apart the state budget.
“While the state Budget
Office estimates the cost of
providing subsidized health
insurance for the General
Assembly to be $1.2 million
per year,” Fung said, “the
real price is much higher,”
Fung continued. “Special
deals and taxpayer-funded
perks for political insiders
chip away at the credibility
of our state and the morale
of our citizens. The cost of
this perk will appear much
greater to hard-working
Rhode Islanders who struggle to pay mortgages and fill
their gas tanks, or others
who have been out of work
for weeks, or even months,
when asked to pay for health
insurance for part-time state
legislators.”
Packard, the company that is
working on DMV’s inadequate computer system, a
problem that has plagued the
agency for years.
The state was assessed
that penalty, Block says,
because the state “wasted
23,000 hours of HP’s time.”
He said Rhode Island has
“paid more than $15 million
over the course of a decade
for a computer system project that still does not work.”
“In my software business,” Block said, “we contract with various state governments and private businesses. If my company failed
to deliver as miserably as HP
has failed the state taxpayers, my company would
have had its contract terminated and my company
would have been on the
hook to pay fines. Instead,
the state is paying fines to
our vendor for a system that
functionally doesn’t exist.
This defies all common
sense and is a classic example of waste and fraud.
“How many other vendors are taking advantage of
Rhode Island taxpayers?” he
asked, speculating about
whether the state’s health
insurance exchange operation is similarly troubled.
Chafee spokeswoman
Faye Zuckerman issued a
statement later in the day
that said: “Governor Chafee
inherited both the Hewlett
Packard contract and more
than five-hour wait times at
the DMV from businessman
Governor Carcieri.
Businessman Ken Block is
directing criticism toward his
own Republican Party. Wait
times have dropped considerably since Governor
Chafee took office. He continues to work with the
DMV to get the right
staffing levels to ensure that
the times continue to
improve.
But the DMV page on the
Transparency Portal contains
a chart showing that wait
times have increased, even
during months where the
volume of transactions has
dipped.
Attempts to reach DMV
Director Anthony Silva for
more details on the computer
project were unsuccessful on
Tuesday.
According to information
provided by the Block campaign:
• The current overall average wait time at the DMV is
one hour and six minutes.
• The wait time has not
been that bad since August
2011.
• The overall average wait
time has tripled in the last 10
months.
• During that period, the
average wait time for licenses has increased 262 percent;
155 percent for registrations.

THE CALL A3
EP officials issue advisory
for TTHM in water supply
By JOSEPH FITZGERALD
[email protected]
EAST PROVIDENCE –
Water Department officials
are reporting elevated levels
of trihalomethanes (TTHM)
in drinking water supplied
by the city, but say the levels
detected do not pose an
immediate risk to a person’s
health.
Trihalomethanes
(TTHMs) are a byproduct of
the water treatment process.
They are formed when natural organic material, such as
the decaying vegetation
commonly found in lakes
and reservoirs, reacts with
chlorine used to treat the
water. This reaction produces “disinfection by-products,” the most common of
which are TTHMs.
The city purchases its
water solely from
Providence Water, and is
required by the R.I.
Department of Health to add
chlorine to the water in order
to maintain a chlorine residual of 0.2 milligram per liter.
While TTHMs are normally found in water, levels
in the city’s drinking water
supply rose above the
Environmental Protection
Agency’s maximum levels
over the last four quarters of
testing, prompting Public
Works Director Stephen
Coutu and Water
Superintendent James
Marvel to issue an advisory
on Monday.
EPA has set standards for
TTHMs in water because
there is a slight possibility of
an increased risk of bladder
or colorectal cancer over a
lifetime of drinking water
with TTHMs above 80 parts
per billion.
The city’s average level
of TTHMs between July 1,
2013, and March 31, 2014,
was 85 parts per billion.
“Although this is not an
emergency, as our customers, you have a right to
know what happened, what
you should do, and what we
are doing to correct the situation,” the water department
said in a statement on the
city’s Web site.”
This is the first TTHM
violation in the East
Providence water system,
but it isn’t likely to be the
last until the city completes
its proposed water system
improvements.
“We are working to minimize the formation of
TTHMs while ensuring an
adequate level of disinfection to protect customers
from exposure to bacteria,”
the advisory said. “The City
Council has approved a bond
to begin system upgrades to
distribution mains, a new
storage tank, treatment system, and transmission main.”
In the meantime, water
officials say residents are not
being asked to take any corrective action at this time,
including boiling water.
The EPA estimates that
drinking 2 liters of water
containing 100 parts per billion TTHMs every day for
70 years could result in three
extra cases of cancer for
every 10,000 people. The
slight risk of increased cancer occurs only after decades
of drinking water with elevated TTHMs. Therefore,
there is no immediate risk
from the water with TTHMs
above 80 parts per billion.
However, residents who
have specific health concerns should consult their
doctor, the city advisory
says.

Rotary involved in
many outreach programs
With the start of a new “Rotary Year” I
thought it would be a great time to give
you an idea of Rotary International looks
like around the world, so you have a better
idea of what the
Woonsocket Rotary is
an important part of.
There are 1.2 million Rotarians in
34,000 Rotary Clubs
worldwide. Along
with the Rotary
Clubs, there are thousands of people
involved in these
other Rotary programs:
•Interact (for youth
ages 12 – 18) and
Rotaract (for young adults age 18 – 30) are
basically a Rotary Club’s “farm team.”
With more than 12,300 Interact Clubs in
133 countries — including clubs at
Woonsocket High and Woonsocket Middle
School — and 8,000 Rotaract clubs in 167
countries — including Bryant University—
we are building some remarkable, servicefocused leaders!
•Rotary Youth Exchange program,
allows more than 8,000 youth to spend
their summers or their entire school year in
another country annually.
•Rotary Youth Leadership Awards are
scholarships Rotary Clubs provide to area
youth to participate in Rotary-led leadership development programs.
•There are also 6,800 Rotary
Community Corps in 78 countries. These
are groups of non-Rotarians organized by
local Rotary Clubs to work on community
improvement projects together.
•There are 70 Global Networking
Groups that are open to Rotarians, their
spouses, and Rotaractors. These networking groups include Rotary Fellowships that
are focused on vocational and recreational
interests and Rotarian Action Groups that
are focused on service projects.
I’ve written here about the local projects
that the Woonsocket Rotary has taken on
this past year. What I haven’t mentioned
much about is the work that all Rotarians
in every Rotary Club supports along with
other leading educational institutions and
organizations.
We are a key partner in the Global Polio
Eradication Initiative with the US Centers
From
The Rotary
for Disease Control and Prevention, the
World Health Organization, UNICEF, and
the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Aside from polio eradication efforts, we
work with the United Nations on a number
of international causes, including hunger
relief, literacy, and child & maternal health
initiatives.
Rotarians are committed to supporting
the efforts of Mercy Ships (the floating
hospitals), Oikocredit International (international microlending for economic development), Aga Khan University (polio
eradication research institution), and
Unesco-IHE (clean water).
We also work with ShelterBox to provide emergency response teams and equipment to sites of natural disasters.
We are collaborating partners with
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, the
Global FoobBanking Network, Goodwill
Industries International, the International
Reading Association, and Youth Service
America.
We facilitate water and sanitation projects around the world through the Rotary
International/US Agency for International
Development International H20
Collaboration.
We provide fellowships for students at
the Rotary Peace Centers in the following
universities around the world to students
taking degrees in conflict prevention and
resolution:
•Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok,
Thailand (professional development center)
•Duke University and University of
North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA
•International Christian University,
Tokyo, Japan
•Universidad del Salvador, Buenos
Aires, Argentina
•University of Bradford, West
Yorkshire, England
•University of Queensland, Brisbane,
Australia
•Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden
We might be only be a small club in the
Blackstone Valley. We are part of an enormous movement that makes a tremendous
difference in every corner of the world,
though.

this extraordinary work, come to an ordinary lunch! For more details, contact me at

As others see it: Smoking
The following editorial appeared in
Monday's Washington Post:
To buy cigarettes in Australia, you have
to pick up a dull green package plastered
with photos of a shriveled infant, a blackened lung or an old man with a tracheotomy hole in his throat. You also need to
look closely because the only difference
among brands is the name in a small, prescribed font on the bottom quarter of the
pack. This arrangement, implemented in
2012, made Australia the first nation both
to require graphic images and ban enticing
logos on cigarette packs.
On Thursday, Australian officials
announced that the nation's smoking rate
fell 15 percent in the past three years —
from 15.1 percent of people older than 14
in 2010 to 12.8 percent in 2013. "This
means the daily smoking rate has halved
since 1991," said Geoff Neideck, a health
spokesperson. By comparison, the United
States took nearly a half-century to do the
same.
Australia's path toward the plain-packaging law wasn't smooth. A long public
debate preceded passage of the measure.
Philip Morris and other tobacco companies
then challenged it in court and before a
United Nations tribunal, and they covered
some legal fees for several countries to dispute it at the World Trade Organization.
The government won the domestic lawsuit,
but the other two cases are still pending.
Tobacco researchers say that the drop in
the smoking rate shows that plain-packaging laws — as well as the 25 percent tax
increase Australia instituted in 2010 —
work. These packs help "de-normalize"
smoking, disassociating it from hipness
and associating it with smoking's health
consequences. Perhaps the fact that cigarette manufacturers are filing lawsuits is
evidence enough of the laws' impact —
and a sign that the United States should be
following in Australia's footsteps.
At least 65 countries have finalized their
graphic warnings, but the United States
still uses its 1984 "Surgeon General's
Warning," small text posted on the side of
cigarette packs. In 2009, Congress ordered
the Food and Drug Administration to move
to graphic warnings. But a federal appeals
court threw out the FDA's resulting rule on
the grounds that it violated companies'
commercial speech rights. The FDA is currently undertaking research in the process
of proposing new graphic images.
The United States has lowered its smoking rate to below 20 percent, thanks to
measures including higher cigarette taxes,
non-smoking environments and bans on
cigarette advertising. Some states are doing
more — New Jersey, for example, is considering raising the smoking age to 21. But
42 million Americans still smoke, and
stronger labels are an essential component
of a more comprehensive response.
The downside of giving weapons
to rebels in Ukraine or Syria
The bodies and debris that rained from the
Ukrainian sky offer a cautionary lesson about
the danger of giving heavy weapons to nonstate actors. I hope the hawks who wanted
President Obama to ship anti-aircraft missiles
to the Syrian rebels are paying attention.
By now there is little doubt that Malaysia
Airlines Flight 17, with 298
people on board, was blasted out of the sky Thursday
by a Russian-made SA-11
missile fired from eastern
Ukraine. U.S. officials say
they have solid evidence
that Russia supplied such
arms to the separatist rebels
who control that part of the
Eugene Robinson
country.
It is unclear whether the
missile was fired by rebels who had been
trained to operate the complex SA-11 system
or by Russian military advisers. This seems
to me a distinction without a difference.
Whoever pulled the trigger, Russia must bear
responsibility and be held accountable.
It was deeply irresponsible for Russian
President Vladimir Putin to put a missile system capable of downing a civilian airliner at
the disposal of trigger-happy separatists who
may have had no idea what they were shooting at. If Putin believed the presence of
Russian advisers would foreclose the possibility of a tragic mistake, obviously he was
wrong.
The tragedy comes amid Putin’s broader
campaign to fragment Ukraine and reabsorb
parts of it into Russia. This whole effort
should be condemned and resisted; Russia
has already been hit with international sanctions, which now are likely to be toughened.
“The costs for Russia’s behavior will only
continue to increase,” President Obama said
Monday.

region. (Maxim Zmeyev/Reuters)
The most important lesson U.S. policymakers should learn from this terrible event, I
believe, is that sophisticated weapons, once
given to combatants in a civil war, are virtually impossible to keep under control.
This is true whether those given the arms
are Russian-backed rebels or “moderate”
Syrian freedom fighters.
Of particular concern are anti-aircraft
weapons. In any civil war, the government
side is likely to have superiority or supremacy in the air. Governments have professional
air forces and fleets of aircraft; rebel armies
generally do not.
In Ukraine, the separatists sought to neutralize the government’s advantage in air
power by deploying anti-aircraft systems —
and successfully using them. On July 14, just
days before the Malaysia Airlines tragedy, a
Ukrainian troop transport plane was hit by a
missile near the Russian border. This aircraft
— like the civilian airliner — was flying
above 20,000 feet, high enough that it could
have been downed only by a powerful and
sophisticated anti-aircraft system such as the
SA-11.
But of the dozen government aircraft
reportedly shot down by rebels in recent
months, most were flying at lower altitudes.
In late May, for example, a helicopter with 12
soldiers aboard was downed. In June,
49?Ukrainian troops died when a transport
plane was blown out of the sky.
These other aircraft were within the range
of small, portable, shoulder-fired missiles,
which Russia is believed to have supplied to
the separatists in large numbers — and which
hawkish critics of Obama’s foreign policy
have demanded he give to pro-Western rebel
groups in Syria.
The government of Bashar al-Assad has
survived largely through the brutal use of air
power against defenseless civilians. Partly
neutralizing this advantage — by credibly
threatening to shoot Assad’s planes down —
might have changed the course of the war,
though now it might be too late.
From the beginning, Obama has been
extremely reluctant to send anti-aircraft
weapons of any kind into Syria. Now his critics should understand why.
When weapons are given to non-state
actors, there is no guarantee they will be used
competently — and no guarantee that they
won’t fall into the wrong hands. In Syria, the
“good” rebels have been outmaneuvered and
outfought by the “bad” rebels: the jihadist
militia that calls itself the Islamic State and
now controls a huge territory encompassing
parts of Syria and Iraq. The Islamic State is
so fanatical and bloodthirsty that it was disowned by al-Qaeda.
Imagine that the Pentagon had given U.S.supported rebels enough shoulder-fired missiles to seriously threaten the Syrian army’s
low-flying aircraft, including its helicopters.
Imagine that these weapons were captured by
the Islamic State.
Imagine the grave threat this would pose,
not just to allied forces struggling against the
Islamic State but potentially to commercial
aviation as well.
Flooding a war zone with weapons is like
dumping gasoline on a fire. Vladimir Putin
should pay a heavy price for doing so. And
Obama’s critics owe him an apology.

Three area men sentenced
in major drugs, guns bust
By RUSS OLIVO
[email protected]
PAWTUCKET – The
U.S. Attorney’s Office on
Tuesday announced the sentences of three local men
and another from Cranston
in connection with charges
stemming from a 15-month
investigation that resulted
in the seizure of a substantial quantity of heroin,
crack, powder cocaine,
Ecstasy, the club drug
“Molly,” and a cache of
firearms that included a
machine gun.
Salee Yang, 30, of
Pawtucket, the primary target of the investigation, was
sentenced to 120 months in
federal prison; Eric Negron,
49, of Pawtucket, who
admitted to being a primary
supplier of heroin, cocaine
and crack cocaine to Yang,
was sentenced to 184
months; Stanz Hun, 26, of
Cranston, a member of the
“Four-Fifths Mafia” and the
PSB street gangs who
admitted to being a customer of Yang and to operating his own drug business, was sentenced to 84
months in federal prison;
and Peter Lietar, 37, of
Pawtucket, who admitted to
supplying Ecstasy and
“Molly” to Yang, was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison and ordered to
pay a fine of $30,000.
The sentences were
handed down during hearings that began in March,
said Jim Martin, a
spokesman for U.S.
Attorney Peter Neronha.
The last of the hearings,
during which Hun was sentenced, took place on
Tuesday.
The men were arrested in
June 2013 on drug trafficking, conspiracy and
firearms charges.
“Drug trafficking, illegal
guns and gang activity are a
one-two-three recipe for
urban violence, often with
disastrous results,” said
Neronha. “The long sentences received by these
men are well-deserved, and
will contribute to making
our urban neighborhoods
safer.”
This case was brought as
part of the Rhode Island
Urban Violent Crime
Initiative, a local, state and
federal law enforcement
collaboration designed to
prevent crime in cities.
The investigation,
launched in March 2012,
resulted in the seizure of
more than 137 grams of
heroin, 392 grams of crack
cocaine, 235 grams of
cocaine powder, 47 grams
and 100 pills of the synthetic drug “Molly,” 100
Ecstasy pills and six
firearms, including a
machine gun, officials said.

Sandy debris still discovered
in marshland of Northeast
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Nearly
two years after Superstorm Sandy pounded the Northeast, communities in
Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island
are preparing to track down and remove
debris from marshland.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration said it will spend $4.7 million for debris removal in marshland in the
states. New York City is among the areas
designated.
Cleanup from Superstorm Sandy began
soon after the storm in public areas such
as beaches and parks.
Dianna Parker, a spokeswoman at
NOAA’s marine debris program, said
much of what was tossed into marshes and
coastline areas by the October 2012 storm
included construction debris, docks, decks,
furniture, lumber and boat remains.
Some debris is partly submerged, presenting additional challenges to companies
that will be selected to haul away the
garbage.
The work is specialized and done by
only a few companies in the United States,
said Reid Loper, senior project manager at
CrowderGulf LLC, a Theodore, Ala., company that removes debris and restores
coastal areas.
A project in sensitive marshland will
typically use equipment that uses a smaller
footprint measured in pounds per square
foot, he said.
“Sometimes, it takes a lot of personnel,
a lot of manual hand labor,” Loper said.
“Sometimes that’s all you can use.”
Marine debris is a potential hazard to
navigation, fishing grounds and ecosystems, Connecticut environmental officials
said.
Marshes are important as buffers to
storm surges and are “nursery grounds”
for crustaceans, mollusks and fish, said
Kate Hughes Brown, grant coordinator at
the state Department of Energy and
Environmental Protection.
Work will begin in Connecticut when
permits are issued and could wrap up in a
year.

Statewide police union endorses Taveras
WARWICK — The
Rhode Island Office of the
National Association of
Government
Employees/International
Brotherhood of Police
Officers (NAGE/IBPO)
announced its endorsement
of Providence Mayor
Angel Taveras in the race
to become Rhode Island’s
next governor.
NAGE/IBPO represents
approximately 1,200 police
officers in 28 communities
across Rhode Island as
well as 300 civilian
employees.
“The Committee was
impressed with Mayor
Taveras’ plans to help
improve Rhode Island’s
economy, while putting
people first. Angel is committed to supporting public
safety professionals and
knows that a safe society
means one where we are
respected,” said Anthony
Capezza Jr., NAGE/IBPO
state director.
“As mayor, he saved the
City of Providence from a
near certain bankruptcy.
His leadership moved the
city forward and put it on a
strong financial path “
even in the midst of a difficult recession. This experience and his willingness
to work with the labor
community is what our
state needs to allow us to
achieve our common goal
of fairness and prosperity
for all Rhode Islanders,”
Capezza added.
“I have an immense
amount of respect for our
police officers and our
civil servants. These men
and women get up every
day to protect and serve
our communities. We owe
it to them to respect that
service,” said Taveras. “I
am honored to have the
support of NAGE/IBPO
and believe that together
we can build a stronger
economy and a Rhode
Island where all of our citizens have the opportunity
to succeed.”
Taveras has previously
been endorsed by: the

THE CALL A7
Girl and cousin both need
counseling after assault
DEAR ABBY:
My granddaughter
“Cindy,” age 2, was being
watched by her mommy’s exsister-in-law and her sons.
Cindy went to her mommy
and said, “Bubby hurt me.”
Bubby is what she calls her
10-year-old cousin. Her
mother called the police. A
policeman spoke to her and
said there wasn’t enough evidence. Now my granddaughter is scared of men.
The police went and
talked to the cousin who
said he “accidentally
touched her down there with
her pull-up on.” DCFS was
called in, and again it was a
man. We took Cindy to a
female doctor and Cindy
told the doctor everything
that happened to her. Now
she wakes up having nightmares and yells, “No, Bubby.
Stop!”
What’s a grandmother to
do to help her? We need justice for Cindy.
— DISTRAUGHT GRANDMOTHER
DEAR DISTRAUGHT:
You may need justice for
Cindy, but what Cindy needs
right now is professional
help to get past the trauma
of what was done to her.
Contact the nearest rape
treatment center, tell them
everything you have told me
and ask for their assistance
DEAR ABBY
Jeanne Phillips
in finding therapy for your
grandchild. They hear stories
like this all too often.
The boy who assaulted
Cindy also needs counseling
so that he won’t/can’t repeat
what he did to her with
another little girl. From my
perspective, both of these
children need professional
help.
DEAR ABBY:
For years I dated guys
who I knew wanted a committed relationship, while I
just wanted to have fun. I
enjoyed being single and
never saw myself getting
married. My mom was married three times to men who
abused her. It made the idea
of marriage terrifying to me.
Through counseling, I
Horoscope
By HOLIDAY MATHIS
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
It is said that a person cannot be
deceived who does not on some
level want to believe the deception. Whether or not that is true,
keep your eyes wide open, and
you’ll be impervious to such
things.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
It’s better to go through bad
times with good people than to
get on board with good times
with bad people. Take your company into careful consideration.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Are you already the person you
want to be? Well, he or she is
somewhere inside you, that’s for
sure! Your potential will be realized — you can count on that.
Keep on with the mission.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Living well and fully is the
answer, not living long without
the passion of your conviction. If
you think it will take a lot out of
you, it’s probably a mission
worth your effort.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You
are not worried about what people think of you, because you
assume that they don’t — mostly.
You should be warned, though,
that you’re more memorable and
entertaining than you think.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
Your personal qualities will
endure. So, do you know what
they are, and are you in touch
with them? It might be something to home in on now, as
you’ll be growing them for a lifetime.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).
There will be an inconvenience,
a major inconvenience, in fact.
But if you think of this as a challenge in problem solving or, better yet, an adventure, you will
turn it into an opportunity
instead.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
Paper exchanged between you
and another will make a difference in your perception of that
person or business. It is one of
the most tangible forms of communication and is to be strongly
considered.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You’ll be putting a
price tag on your work. Don’t
think in terms of what you’re
worth. Think in terms of the
value you create in the lives of
others, and price accordingly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19). People you grew up with
have influenced the definition of
your boundaries, but you don’t
have to leave those boundaries
where they are. You can change
and move them. You feel ready
for a redesign.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18). You can’t exactly yell out
“cut” like a movie director and
end the scene so everyone can
try the whole thing over from the
top. But you will be able to do
some version of that. You really
are the director, you know.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
At one time, you rather unconsciously selected people and circumstances to keep you in a
comfortable and familiar place.
Now you’re thinking differently,
and your eyes are wide open as
you guide yourself toward new
horizons.
have found healing from my
past. I regret the damage I
caused by leading guys on.
Now that I want to be married, my life feels empty.
While I used to enjoy my
independence, I now want to
share my experiences with
someone.
Because of the counseling
I have had, I know what I
shouldn’t settle for, but the
only guys asking me out are
sleazy. I feel like in some
ways life was easier when I
wanted to stay single. How
do I find a healthy balance
so I won’t go back to my old
ways or end up settling out
of desperation?
— HEALED
BUT CONFUSED
DEAR HEALED BUT
CONFUSED: One way
would be to continue the
counseling. While you may
want to be married now, desperation and neediness are
not traits that attract worthwhile men.
You need to be prepared
to take some time and find a
balance in your life while
you’re looking for Mr. Right.
Explore your own interests,
make friends with members
of both sexes, do some volunteering if you have the
time. If you do, the chances
of your meeting the right
kind of man will improve

Gannon recognized as Pawtucket Soup Kitchen hero
Ex-Patriots star
presents group
with $10K check
By JOSEPH B. NADEAU
[email protected]
PAWTUCKET – Ray
Gannon knows all too well
that it takes plenty of volunteers to keep an organization
working to help people in
need. He has seen that
proven again and again as he
helped run the Pawtucket
Soup Kitchen at 195 Walcott
St. since its founding in
1992, and witnessed the ups
and downs in support over
the years.
Now thanks to the Kraft
Family and New England
Patriots Charitable
Foundation, Gannon’s good
work is helping the kitchen
in an even bigger way, to the
tune of $10,000.
Gannon is among the 26
winners of the 2014 Myra
Kraft Community MVP
Awards.
One grand prize of
$25,000 was awarded to a
member of the group, and
Gannon was among the ten
earning $10,000 secondplace awards.
All of the cash awards
were made to the organization where the honorees volunteer.
To help Gannon celebrate
the Pawtucket Soup
Kitchen’s receipt of $10,000
from the Kraft and Patriots
foundation, Steve Nelson, a
former Patriots linebacker
and a member of the Patriots
Hall of Fame, joined
Gannon in serving an
evening meal and also to
hand over a copy of the
donation check. The kitchen
is located in the basement
community room of Holy
Family Parish on Walcott
Street and serves many families in the neighborhood in
addition to members of the
homeless community.
Nelson said he believes
players have a responsibility
to “give back to the community,” and that was why he
went to meet Gannon on
Tuesday. “He has been volunteering in the Soup
Kitchen for over 20 years
and helps to serve 27,000
meals to people in need each
year,” Nelson said. “There
were over 350 nominees for
the awards, and Ray was
selected to receive one,” he
said while describing
Gannon as very deserving of
the team and foundation’s
recognition.
Gannon had not met
Nelson prior to Tuesday, but
said he found him to be “a
tremendous guy.”
The fact that the Krafts
and Patriots were donating
funding to the Soup Kitchen
was an even more important
tribute, Gannon said.
“It is awesome to think
they gave $10,000 to the
Soup Kitchen,” he said.
“That will go an enormously
long way to helping those in
need,” he said. “It is a great
day.”
Gannon was also honored
by visits from close friends
like longtime kitchen volunteer Irving Basiliere, 90, and
his family, and Rhode Island
notables such as Attorney
General Peter Kilmartin,
retired Superior Court Judge
Joseph Keough, a member
of the kitchen’s board of
directors, and former R.I.
State Police Col. Brendan
Doherty.
Keough said Gannon was
“an outstanding” person and
his tribute “long overdue.”
Gannon’s granddaughter
said she also believed he
was deserving of such an
honor.
“It’s wonderful because
he has been doing such
amazing work for so many
years and he is just as humble as ever,” she said. “It is
so nice that he has finally
gotten the recognition. His
family is thrilled.”

Friday vigil to serve as memorial for two homeless men’s deaths
By JOSEPH B. NADEAU
[email protected]
PAWTUCKET – The deaths of
two homeless men in Providence
will draw members of the organizations working to help those in
need to a candlelight vigil at
Cathedral Square Friday evening.
Karen Jeffreys, of the R.I.
Coalition for the Homeless, at
1070 Main St., said the evening’s
observances will be the third such
vigil the organizations and volunteers have held since committing
to remember any homeless person
who dies while living on the
streets in Rhode Island.
The groups participating the
Statewide Outreach Committee
will be gathering to remember
Luis Belmont, 45, beaten on
March 13 this year and who died
at Rhode Island Hospital of blunt
head trauma and complications on
March 31; and Milton Lyles, who
was attacked and beaten on May
19 this year and died of his
injuries at Rhode Island Hospital
on June 13.
The vigil for the two victims of
crimes against the homeless will
follow two other vigils held to
remember two men dying while
living on the streets, according to
Jim Ryczek, executive director of
Apple pie contest

PAWTUCKET — The Pawtucket
Dog Park Committee’s “Dogapalooza”

Deadline for entries to be received is
July 30, and the contest is limited to the
first 12 entrants. There is a $5 entry fee.
Pies will be judged in three categories:
• Overall Appearance — texture, consistency, inside texture
• Taste — flavor strength, balance of
ingredients, taste of crust
• Overall Impression — creativity,
impressiveness, memorable
the R.I. Coalition for the
Homeless.
The prior observances were for
a homeless man who died in fire
in a truck where he was staying to
keep warm, and another with medical problems.
“We all promised as a group
that if someone died on the street
we would hold a vigil to remember them,” Ryczek said. “So on
Friday we will have a speaking
program and we are inviting all of
the Providence politicians and candidates for governor and lieutenant
governor and members of the
General Assembly to join us,” he
said.
The Rev. Donna Williams will
serve as master of ceremonies, and
Teny Gross of the Center for the
Study and Practice of NonViolence will speak about
Belmont’s and Lyles’ deaths.
Ryczek said he plans to address
the gathering about the problem of
finding shelter for the homeless in
Rhode Island and the lack of
affordable housing in the state in
general.
The work by groups such as
the R.I. Coalition for the Homeless
and volunteers and by health care
providers is bringing more people
off the streets and into the care
system, but once in, there is not
enough movement of those gaining assistance into permanent
housing, he noted.
And for those remaining on the
street, the risks are great, according to the Coalition. The mortality
rate for individuals experiencing
homelessness is 3 to 4 times that
of the general population.
The vigil will begin to assemble
at the Square in front of Saints
Peter and Paul Cathedral off 30
Fenner St. in Providence at 6 p.m.,
and the speaking program at 7
p.m. For more information on the
Coalition’s efforts to help the
homeless, call 401-721-5685 or

CF’s contracted school custodians vote to join union
CENTRAL FALLS – Local school custodians working for the school’s department contracted provider GCA Service Group, Inc.,
have voted to join the Rhode Island Council
94 labor union, Council 94 reported Tuesday.
“Central Falls school custodians made an
important decision today; a decision to stand
for dignity, for their future and the future of
their families,” Gladys Gould, a Council 94
organizer, said.
“They worked hard to secure a strong
voice in their workplace and now, R.I.
Council 94 will work hard to negotiate a good
contract for those custodians who day in and
day out make sure the students, parents, and
staff have clean and safe schools in Central
Falls,” she said.
RI Council, which represents many school
custodians in different cities and towns across
Rhode Island, had represented custodians in
Central Falls before they were privatized.
Gould said that status changed for the Central
Falls employees on Thursday.
J. Michael Downey, RI Council 94 president, said the union is proud of its new members. “R.I. Council 94 has vast experience
negotiating good contracts and setting the
standards for this industry in the public sector
and now is the time to extend those benefits to
the private sector,” he said.

Post 22 late Tuesday afternoon.
The pre-game philosophy
included starting John
Almeida for three frames,
moving to fellow righthander
Miguel Raymond for another
trio before opting for closer
Scott Tucker in the seventh.
Having already secured a
playoff spot, it seemed a
stellar idea. It turned out to
be one as well.
Almeida allowed just
three hits (without a run) and
a walk with three whiffs in
his initial shutout innings,
and Raymond delivered virtually the same, yielding two
hits and a pair of walks with
one “K.” With that, not to
mention Kevin Valentine’s
masterful 3-for-4 performance at the plate, Navigant

lthough Frank Geiselman has officially retired
from Cumberland High School as the Clippers’
athletic director, he hasn’t fully abandoned ship
just yet.
Geiselman is still overseeing the town’s varsity, junior
varsity and middle school sports programs while a
search for his successor takes place. Once a candidate is
found, he will remain on board for a while longer to help
make the transition a smooth one.
“Even though I’ve resigned, there are still some
things that need to get done before someone is put in
place,” Geiselman said.
When you’ve been involved in Clipper athletics for as
long as Geiselman has – the Pawtucket native and
Tolman High graduate has been a part of the sports
scene on the Mendon Road campus since 1971 – making
a clean break is easier said than done. But Geiselman,
67, says that he’s at peace with his decision to step aside.
Reached earlier this week at his office at the Sher-LeMon Swim Club, Geiselman said that retirement from

SYRACUSE – The Pawtucket
Red Sox rallied for six runs in the
first two frames and held on for a
satisfying 8-3 victory over the
Syracuse Chiefs before 3,822 fans at
NBT Bank Stadium on Tuesday
night.
Matt Barnes (5-7) earned the win,
yielding just three hits, two runs
(both earned) and a trio of walks
with a pair of strikouts in 6 1/3
innings. Blake Treinan (6-1) took his
first loss for the Chiefs (60-44) after

Mookie Betts led the Sox, going
2-for-5 with three RBI and two runs
scored, while Jonathan Herrera went
2-for-4 with two RBI and two runs
scored (raising his batting average to
.395) and Carlos Rivero 2-for-4 with
a double and a pair of RBI.
Pawtucket (now 57-48) started
with bats blazing, plating a pair in

surge with a leadoff hit to center,
then scored on Herrera’s soft triple

KR Baseball Academy is
on the move after a successful 10-year run in Pawtucket.
Though nothing is official, the owner hopes everything regarding the academy’s new Lincoln location
will be signed, sealed and
delivered by the middle of
next week. More specifically, Ken Ryan plans to inhabit
space on 100 Higginson
Ave., which is situated in the
Lonsdale section of town.
“It’s going to be a very
nice facility and similar to
what we had,” said Ryan, the
Pawtucket native who
pitched for both the PawSox
and Red Sox.
If everything checks out
accordingly, Ryan plans to
be up and running in
October with a grand unveiling scheduled either on a
Sunday in the same month or
in November.
It appears that the new
home for KR Baseball
Academy is going to be part
of an emerging sports and
entertainment complex.
Based on what Ryan has
been told, a Formula One
race track is going right next
to his baseball school. It’s
also possible that mini golf
could be part of a setup that
already features an indoor
rock-climbing venue.

NBA
CEO: Rivers to quit Clippers if Sterling stays
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The
interim CEO of the Los Angeles
Clippers testified Tuesday that coach
Doc Rivers told him he will quit if
Donald Sterling remains the owner of
the team.
CEO Richard Parsons made the
statement at a trial to determine
whether Sterling’s wife Shelly
Sterling can sell the team for $2 billion to former Microsoft CEO Steve
Ballmer.
The NBA has tried to force out
Donald Sterling since soon after racist
statements emerged on recordings in
April.
“Doc is troubled by this maybe
moreso than anybody else,” Parsons
said on the witness stand about
Rivers, who is black. “If Mr. Sterling
continues as owner, he does not want
to continue as coach.”
Parsons said he fears there would
also be an exodus of key players,
including team captain Chris Paul,
who also is black and heads the NBA
players union.
Parsons was about to give an
account of his conversations with
Paul but was stopped by an objection
by an NBA lawyer who said it would
be an invasion of privacy. The judge
upheld the objection.
Rivers has said he had heard from
other Clippers business employees
that they didn’t think they would be
able to work for Sterling under the
circumstances.
Parsons is a former chief executive
at Time Warner and Citigroup who
took over leadership of the Clippers
in May during the media blitz surrounding the banishment of Sterling.
Under questioning by Ballmer’s
lawyer, Parsons said the departure of
Rivers would begin “a death spiral”
for the Clippers.
“If Doc were to leave, that would
be a disaster,” Parsons said. “Doc is
the father figure, the one who leads.
He’s the coach. He’s the grown-up.
He is able to connect with people and
earn their trust. The team believes in
him and loves him.
“If he were to leave, that is only
going to accelerate the death spiral,”
Parson said.
The discussion of Clippers players
and coaches is new territory for the
trial that has mostly explored the dealings between the Sterlings.
It wasn’t immediately clear what
effect the new information might have
on the narrow question under consideration of whether Shelly Sterling can
sell the team under the family trust.
Messages left for team officials
seeking comment from Rivers weren’t
immediately returned.
Parsons, who is considered an
expert in the management of major
corporations, said he was certain that
sponsors would pull out and season
ticket holders would demand their
money back if Donald Sterling
remains as owner.
“If your coach leaves, if your players don’t want to play with you, what
do you have?” Parsons asked. “If
your sponsors leave and the fans
leave, it’s going to spiral down and
down.”
He said key sponsors such as
Mandalay Bay Resorts in Las Vegas
are cold about whether they will continue, as are other companies including Kia Motors Corp.
“We have a bunch of sponsors sitting at the edge of the pool and they
don’t want to go in if the Sterlings are
there,” Parsons said.
Parsons also said he doesn’t
believe that anyone will offer as
much money for the team as Ballmer.
The high-stakes financial fight
centers on whether Shelly Sterling
was authorized to make a deal with
Ballmer on behalf of the Sterling
Family Trust.
While she was negotiating, Donald
Sterling revoked the trust, a move
designed to rescind his signed agreement for the sale of the Clippers,
which he bought for just $12 million.
He announced from the witness
stand earlier in the trial that he would
never sell the team and would be
suing the NBA for the rest of his life.

TORONTO — J.A. Happ
pitched six shutout innings
for his first victory in three
starts, Dioner Navarro and
Jose Reyes homered and the
Toronto Blue Jays beat the
Boston Red Sox 7-3 on
Tuesday night.
Reyes and Navarro both
connected in the sixth inning
as the Blue Jays rebounded
from Monday's 14-1 defeat
to snap Boston's winning
streak at five games.
Reyes and Melky Cabrera
both had three hits and two
RBIs. Cabrera has 14 multihit games in his past 30.
David Ortiz hit a solo
homer in the eighth, his third
homer in two games and the
36th of his career at Rogers
Centre, matching Alex
Rodriguez for the most by a
visiting player.
Happ (8-5) allowed seven
hits in six innings, walked
one and struck out four to
win for the first time since
beating the Chicago White
Sox on June 26.
Dustin McGowan allowed
Ortiz's homer in 1 2-3
innings and Aaron Loup
needed just one pitch to
retire pinch-hitter Daniel
Nava for the final out of the
eighth.
Casey Janssen got two
outs in the ninth but gave up
a two-run homer to Stephen
Drew. Brett Cecil got the
final out for his fourth save
in five chances.
The Red Sox have hit at
least one home run in seven
straight games.
Toronto opened the scoring in the third on a two-out
single by Cabrera that struck
Red Sox right-hander Jake
Peavy in the leg and rolled
into foul territory as Anthony
Gose scored.
Reyes led off the sixth
with his eighth home run and
Cabrera followed with a
double. One out later,
Navarro made it 4-0 with a
drive into the bullpen in
right.
Peavy (1-9) left in the
seventh after infield hits by
Gose and Reyes. Cabrera
greeted Burke Badenhop
with another RBI single that
struck the pitcher.
Peavy lost for the ninth
time in 15 starts and has not
won since beating Toronto
on April 25. He allowed five
runs and eight hits in 6 1-3
innings, walked three and
struck out seven.
Toronto made it 7-1 in the
eighth, scoring twice against
Felix Doubront. Ryan Goins
hit an RBI single and scored
on a double by Reyes.
Boston scored a seasonhigh 14 runs in Monday's
rout but couldn't duplicate
that output against Happ.
The Red Sox loaded the
bases with two outs in the
fourth but Drew flied out.
Boston got consecutive
singles from Mike Napoli

Athletics
Continued from page B1
the AD’s chair is something
he had been discussing with
his wife Christine over the
past year. At the end of the
school term, he tendered his
letter of resignation.
“Cumberland has been a
part of the family. It wasn’t
an easy decision, but I
thought it was time,” said
Geiselman, who prior to
becoming athletic director
for the Clippers in 2005,
enjoyed a 26-year coaching
career at the high school
where he piloted football,
girls’ basketball and girls’
volleyball.
Geiselman kidded that the
chances are pretty good that
his wife may kick him out of
the house shortly after the
new school year gets underway. But if not, he is looking
forward to traveling more
and spending more time with
his nine grandchildren.
“When you’re in athletics,
especially coaching all those
years, you just go from one
season to another to another.
Then I step into a summer
job, so I haven’t had a
chance to step back,”
Geiselman said. “Some people have said that you’re not
going to like (retirement)
because you’re one of those
guys who needs to be doing
something. Maybe I do,
maybe I don’t. If there are
things to do at the house, I
can spend more time and not
feel rushed. Before, I would
find a couple of minutes
prior to heading back to the
field, the swim club or the
gym at night.”
Geiselman’s tenure as
athletic director yielded
plenty of positive returns.
You can point to the number
of state championships and
standout athletes that
Cumberland produced, along
with the new track and stateof-the-art synthetic turf at
Tucker Field, and the opening of the multi-purpose
Wellness Center. Geiselman
may also be most remembered as the driving force
behind transforming the AD
position from a part-time
role to a full-time position.
“In my annual report, I
would write about upgrading
the athletic director’s position
to a full-time one, which I
asked for in the past three
years,” Geiselman said. “The
person doing it needs to be
there full time. I was part
time because that’s what the
position entailed, but I don’t
do anything part time. I put
in as many hours as I could,
but you’re limited supposedly by the retirement board.
“In any event, there’s
going to be a lot of things
that the new person will be
able to undertake,”
Geiselman continued. “I think
the athletic department is in
great shape.”
Ryan

area where people are going
to go mini golfing or to
Formula One and say, ‘Oh,
let’s go hit balls while we’re
waiting.’”
Why did Ryan leave his
decade-long Pawtucket business address located at 413
Central Ave.? For starters,
the city placed limits on his
hours of operation during the
day and at night – Ryan was
precluded from holding
pitching and hitting sessions
after 8 p.m. There were also
issues with parking spots
due to apartments sprouting
up in the mill building where
Ryan was operating.
Though Pawtucket officials tried their best to keep
KR Baseball Academy within the city’s limits – Ryan
noted that he looked at several possible relocation spots
– the author of eight bigleague seasons with Boston
and Philadelphia came to the
realization that seeking
space elsewhere would serve
as the best alternative. His
soon-to-be Lincoln digs will
be a little bit smaller than his
Pawtucket operation, which
was 11,700 square feet.
“The way the (Lincoln)
facility is laid out is going to
be very easy for me to put in
my cages,” Ryan said.
Officially, Ryan closed the
doors in Pawtucket in early
June. The phone number to
KR Baseball Academy –
(401) 724-7555 – still works
with Ryan now receiving
calls on his cell phone.
THE CALL B3
Shea is Kate Corry, who
coached tennis and oversaw
the school’s physical education department.
“These two people,
they’ve done it all as far as
coaching and overseeing
games in Pawtucket,”
Scanlon said.
***
Last week’s decision by
the Woonsocket School
Committee to table the discussion relating to the vacant
athletic director’s post has
apparently yielded a couple
of alternative solutions. The
plan is so have something
more concrete to present to
the school committee at the
Aug. 13 meeting.
All signs seem to point to
keeping the AD position as a
part-time job, which was the
case when the late George
Nasuti oversaw Villa Novan
athletics. Carnell Henderson
is still wearing the interim
label, though keep in mind
he’s roughly a month away
from resuming his
Woonsocket football coaching duties.
Henderson, who is also a
vice principal at the high
school, is serving as the contact person for the several
coaching vacancies that are
open for fall sports – two
football assistant coaches,
one girls’ head soccer coach
and one cross country coach.
“I’m trying not to,” said
Henderson when asked if he
would continue running the
athletic department in the
event there’s not a definitive
person in place prior to the
start of school. “I’m still trying to make sure that schedules are committed and the
information that needs to be
passed on to coaches is being
done, but it wouldn’t be fair
to the other sports if this
were to continue.”

Longtime Tolman Athletic Director John L. Scanlon Jr., left,
and longtime Shea Athletic Director Ray McGee both retired
this year.
CHS Athletic Director Frank Geiselman, at right, watches the
Cumberland High School hockey team during their championship win at Meehan Auditorium this past winter.
In another example of just
how committed Geiselman is
to Cumberland athletics, he
was part of the search committee to find his replacement. Prospective candidates
have already been interviewed with the hope that
someone will be in place by
the time fall sports officially
begin practicing next month.
The school committee next
meets on Aug. 14.
As far as what the future
with regard to athletics may
or may not hold, Geiselman
admits that he will continue
to spend his summers working at Sher-Le-Mon. When
asked about the prospect of
serving as a game supervisor,
he responded that such
actions will likely hinge on
guidelines put in place by the
new Cumberland athletic
director.
In the same breath
Geiselman stated, “I would be
more than happy to do something like that.”
“It was very stressful,
but I said to myself that
maybe this is for the best,”
Ryan said. “I’m a business
owner, but I’ve never
moved before.”
Ryan hopes that a change
in scenery will also result in
the expansion of his client
base into the heart of the
Blackstone Valley. When he
was in Pawtucket, he could
always count on drawing
youngsters from the city as
well as Southeastern
Massachusetts.
“We’ve had a lot of support through the years
because of the instruction
they’re getting and it’s customer friendly,” Ryan said.
“A lot of people have been
calling the last few months
asking where I was moving
to because they were going
to follow me.”
***
In Pawtucket, the line of
succession as far as who
would take over as athletic
director at Tolman and Shea
high schools was drawn with
the firm idea of putting in
people who are familiar with
the culture.
Taking over for John
Scanlon at Tolman is Frank
Laliberte, the longtime varsity
tennis coach and scoreboard
operator at basketball games.

Seahawks start
atop AP rankings
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
NEW YORK — The
Seattle Seahawks start the
preseason right where they
ended last season, as the No.
1 team in the AP Pro32 NFL
power rankings.
In balloting by 12 media
members who regularly
cover the NFL, the top three
teams in the AP Pro32 were
the Seahawks, San Francisco
49ers and Denver Broncos.
The Super Bowl champion Seahawks grabbed 11
first-place votes on Tuesday
and had 383 points.
“The world champions are
still intact and have the ability to repeat, but that’s a long
way off,” said Pat Kirwan of
SiriusXM NFL
Radio/CBSSports.com.
Their NFC West rival
from the Bay Area earned
the other first-place vote and
had 360 points.
Rick Gosselin of the
Dallas Morning News put
the 49ers in the top spot.
“The 49ers can run the
ball and play defense,”
Gosselin said. “With Vernon
Davis, a healthy Michael
Crabtree and the addition of
Stevie Johnson, the 49ers
should be able to pass it now
as well.”
The Broncos and New
England Patriots, who faced
each other in the AFC championship game, followed at
No. 3 and No. 4, respectively. Both AFC powers were
active in the offseason trying
to get an edge on the other.
After getting blown out in
the Super Bowl, Denver
added wide receiver
Emmanuel Sanders to help
out Peyton Manning, and
DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib
and T.J. Ward to bolster the
defense.
“Peyton Manning isn’t
going away just yet and the
Broncos have enough firepower on offense and some
key additions on defense to
get back to the big game,”
Kirwan said.
The Patriots added
Darrelle Revis and Brandon
Browner to help a defense
that lost key starters last season to injury.
“Tom Brady still is plenty
good enough to win a championship,” Newsday’s Bob
Glauber said. “Question is
whether there’s enough
around him to give him a
chance.”
The Green Bay Packers
and New Orleans Saints
were tied for fifth.
ESPN’s Herm Edwards
thinks the Packers are a
strong favorite to repeat as
division champions.
“A healthy Aaron Rodgers
along with the running game
of Eddie Lacy and the additions on defense, Julius
Peppers and Ha Ha ClintonDix, is not good for the NFC
North,” Edwards said.
Alex Marvez of
Foxsports.com agreed.
“This looks like Green
Bay’s best roster since their
Super Bowl-winning team of
2010,” he said.
The Indianapolis Colts,
Philadelphia Eagles,
Cincinnati Bengals and San
Diego Chargers rounded out
the top 10.
The Bengals have made
the playoffs for three consecutive seasons and lost in the
first round each time. They
haven’t won a playoff game
since 1990, which ties for
the sixth-longest streak of
postseason futility in NFL
history.
“The time is now for this
roster, especially QB Andy
Dalton.” ESPN.com’s Jeff
Legwold said.
Rounding out the bottom
of the poll were the
Cleveland Browns,,
Jacksonville Jaguars and, at
No. 32, the Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders, who added
Maurice Jones-Drew, Justin
Tuck and LaMarr Woodley
in the offseason, finished 412 last season.
“The Raiders have been
through seven head coaches
since posting their last winning record in 2002,” noted
Ira Kaufman of the Tampa
Tribune.
Giants’ offensive line a
jumble as camp begins
EAST RUTHERFORD,
N.J. (AP) — Nothing is
more important to the New
York Giants’ championship
chances than protecting Eli
Manning.
Nothing is more jumbled
in the Giants’ lineup as training camp opens than the
offensive line.
Not the best formula for
success. Of course, it’s still
only July.
“The Giants have a proud
tradition on the offensive
line,” second-year right tackle Justin Pugh said Tuesday.
“There will always be questions and the only way to
stop those questions is to go
out and play and win and
change people’s opinions.”
Until they kick it off in
the Hall of Fame game on
Aug. 3 against Buffalo, the
Giants won’t have an opportunity to truly test their
blockers. The next week of
practices aren’t likely to
determine a whole lot.
At some point, though,
coach Tom Coughlin and his
staff must sort out who will
be the starters and backups,
and at which positions?
With veteran guard Chris
Snee, a four-time Pro
Bowler, having retired on
Monday, and versatile David
Diehl and Kevin Boothe also
gone, the line will have a
new look regardless of who
is where. The Giants brought
in six veteran linemen, several others with a little experience, and drafted center
Weston Richburg of
Colorado State in the second
round.
They are considering
Brandon Mosley, a 2012
fourth-round pick, for Snee’s
spot — Mosley left practice
early Tuesday with what
Coughlin referred to as
something heat-related.
Richburg worked at both
center and guard in the first
practice session of camp.
Geoff Schwartz, who was
with Kansas City last season,
has been projected at guard,
probably on the left side.
J.D. Walton, last with
Denver, then Washington —
he didn’t play a game last
season — can play center
and guard.
John Jerry, a starting
guard in Miami the past two
seasons who was discarded
after the bullying scandal, is
slowly recovering from knee
surgery.

PAWTUCKET — The Pawtucket
Red Sox have hit a home run with
People for the Ethical Treatment of
Animals, according to PETA’'s ranking of the Top Five VegetarianFriendly AAA Minor League
Ballparks.
McCoy Stadium has taken the
number three spot on PETA’s list.
“McCoy Stadium has really
stepped up to the plate and made all
Pawtucket Red Sox fans feel welcome,” says PETA Director Ryan
Huling. “And by offering so many
different vegetarian and vegan foods,
the park is providing everyone with
healthy options when they go out to
the old ballgame.”
Healthy fare at the stadium cited by
PETA includes hummus and pita
chips, fresh fruit salad, fried greenbean straws, veggie burgers, and veggie dogs.
The number one spot in the minors
goes to the Omaha Storm Chasers’
Werner Park, where fans can chow
down on black-bean burgers (vegans,
hold the cheese), a hearty veggie dog,
and the Philly Cheese Phake (again,
vegans can just hold the cheese).
Coca-Cola Field (Buffalo Bisons) in
New York took second place, and
rounding out the winners are Cheney
Stadium (Tacoma Rainiers) in
Washington and Herschel Greer
Stadium (Nashville Sounds) in
Tennessee. Honorable mentions go to
AutoZone Park (Memphis Redbirds)
in Tennessee and Raley Field
(Sacramento River Cats) in California.
In the major leagues, AT&T Park,
home of the San Francisco Giants,
took top honors, thanks in part to its
tasty Field Roast frankfurter and portobello mushroom sandwich.
The Pawtucket Red Sox will
receive a framed certificate from
PETA.

BOSTON —
Massachusetts children
lead the nation in educational achievement and
health insurance coverage
and the Bay State has one
of the lowest child poverty
rates in the nation, according to a report by the Annie
E. Casey Foundation, a
Baltimore-based philanthropic organization. The
report, based on 2012, the
most recent data available,
declared Massachusetts
first in the nation for overall in child well-being.
“While there’s still more
we need to do to help our
children achieve their full
potential," stated Sen.
Richard T. Moore, DUxbridge, Senate President
Pro Tempore, who has been
a staunch advocate of funding for early childhood
education and children’s
health programs.
Moore was commenting
on a just-released Annie E.
Casey Foundation’s Kids
Count report which studied
economic, health, community and educational metrics.
Massachusetts children
improved in most areas,
although their condition
worsened over recent years
in regards to childhood
poverty, parental employment, single-parent households and children living in
high-poverty areas.
Economic factors well
known to policy makers
and aggravated by the
Great Recession caused
Massachusetts to slip in a
few categories over recent
years. The 15 percent of
Bay State children in
poverty in 2012 is a tick up
from 2005, though well
below the 23 percent of
children living in poverty
nationwide. In
Massachusetts, 414,000
children, or 30 percent, had
parents who lacked secure
employment in 2012 compared to 26 percent in
2008.
Independent rankings
serve as sources of pride or
embarrassment for the state
officials. “The good news
in the Kids Count Data
Book is that, in the aggregate, Massachusetts does
well by children because
we have invested in education and health care,”
Citizens for Public Schools
President Ann O’Halloran
said in a statement issued
through the Massachusetts
Budget and Policy Center.
“The bad news is that an
opportunity gap exists for
poor children and children
of color — they need early
education, small class sizes
through the third grade, and
learning experiences that
support the needs of the
whole child.”
“The findings of this
report validate many of the
budget priorities that my
Senate colleagues and I
have advocated in recent
years,” Moore noted.
Among Moore’s budget
and policy priorities are
funding for early childhood
education, childhood disease immunization, teen
pregnancy prevention —
especially for Southbridge,
which has historically higher rates, and at-risk youth
through programs such as
the Boys and Girls Clubs in
Blackstone and Dudley and
the Milford Youth Center.
As one of the architects
of the landmark
Massachusetts Health
Reform Law, Moore has
long been a recognized
leader in efforts to gain
access to health care for
virtually every child in the
state. The 1 percent, or
20,000 Massachusetts children, without health insurance in 2012, is compared
to 7 percent nationwide.
The Massachusetts
Chapter of the American
Academy of Pediatrics
recently recognized Moore
for his advocacy and lead-
ership in the passage of
“An Act establishing the
Massachusetts Childhood
Vaccine Program.” The bill
establishes a Childhood
Vaccine Trust Fund to provide kids who may not
have otherwise received
certain vaccines through
the state immunization program with access to vaccinations for a list of preventable diseases. The law
also enables the
Commonwealth purchase
the vaccines at a lower
price in an effort to promote health care cost containment.
Moore also established
the Massachusetts Pediatric
Palliative and Hospice Care
Program for seriously ill
children, which has helped
hundreds of Bay State children and their families face
the crises of potentially
fatal illness.
In the new budget, Sen.
Moore championed the
establishment of a
Massachusetts Down
Syndrome Clinic in conjunction with the UMASS
Memorial Children’s
Medical Center that will
provide comprehensive
care services to Down
Syndrome children in
Central and Western
Massachusetts.
The majority of measurements showed cause for
encouragement, however.
High school students not
graduating on time fell by a
third from 2005 and 2006,
when it was at 21 percent,
to 14 percent in 2011 and
2012.
Massachusetts had the
lowest percentage of fourth
graders not proficient in
reading, 45 percent in
2013, and at 45 percent the
lowest number of eighth
graders not proficient in
math that same year.
Teens who abuse alcohol
or drugs have fallen locally
and nationally, as have teen
births, which dropped pre-
cipitously in Massachusetts
and the country as a whole
between 2005 and 2012. In
Massachusetts in 2012
there were 14 teen births
per 1,000 compared to 29
teen births per 1,000
nationwide. Massachusetts
and New Hampshire had
the lowest teen birth rates
in 2012.
“The continued decline
in the teen birth rate in
Massachusetts is a testament to the potential of
youth, the strength of communities, and the positive
investments in teen pregnancy prevention by policymakers,” said Elizabeth
Peck, of the Massachusetts
Alliance on Teen
Pregnancy, in a statement,
“However, the state wide
average ignores the
inequities in health outcomes for underprivileged
groups in our state. We
have a responsibility as a
state to structure resources
so that they more equitably
serve communities and
racial/ethnic minorities
with teen birth rates well
above the state average.”
Other New England
states followed close
behind Massachusetts in
the Kids Count rankings.
Vermont was second, New
Hampshire was fourth and
Connecticut was seventh.
Massachusetts scored
below New Hampshire and
11 other states in the economic categories, topped
the chart in education,
ranked only below Iowa in
health, and ranked eighth in
family and community — a
category where New
Hampshire ranked first.
Overall, Mississippi
ranked lowest.

DEM seeks proposals for $3.2M in water quality grants
PROVIDENCE — The
Department of Environmental
Management announces that up to
$3.2 million in grants are available
for local water quality protection and
restoration projects that abate nonpoint sources of pollution and
improve storm water management.
Funding for the grants includes $2.8
million from the Narragansett Bay
and Watershed Protection Bond Fund,
along with $400,000 from the federal
Clean Water Act Section 319 program. Local, state and regional governmental agencies, as well as public
schools, universities, and nonprofit
watershed, environmental or conservation organizations, are eligible to
apply for the grants.
Nonpoint source pollution arises
from many diverse sources, such as
uncontrolled storm water runoff,
cesspools and failing septic systems,
and erosion due to land disturbances.
DEM has identified surface water
bodies in the state that are impaired
because they do not meet applicable
water quality standards and criteria.
Many of these impairments are due to
nonpoint sources of pollution.
Reducing or preventing nonpoint
source pollution often requires local
implementation of site-specific projects and activities in accordance with
water quality restoration plans. The
newly available grant funds are aimed
at supporting these efforts.
Grant funding through the
Narragansett Bay and Watershed
Restoration Fund, which was
approved by Rhode Island voters in
2012, will be provided for projects
that seek to control the effects of
nonpoint source pollution and
improve storm water management.
Water quality restoration projects
should be based on prior characterization of the pollution sources adversely affecting water quality. Highest
priority will be given to projects that
implement regional actions that result
in watershed-based solutions to abate
nonpoint source impairments that
have been characterized by a water
quality restoration plan, and those
that result in the development of sustainable funding mechanisms for
storm water management.
DEM encourages collaborative
projects that address nonpoint source
pollution abatement on a watershed
or regional basis as appropriate. For
example, municipalities and partners
might work together to implement
riparian buffer restoration actions
such as pavement removal and planting projects or storm water retrofitting projects at several locations in
a prioritized manner within a shared
watershed. DEM is also seeking capital projects that strengthen local
storm water management programs,
including projects that enhance local
capacity for storm water management
