Melee leads to arrests
Local and wire reports
HUDSON, Mass. (AP) — Authorities investigating a kitchen fire at a Hudson public housing complex say they found what appears to be a methamphetamine manufacturing operation. Two people were arrested at the Peter's Grove apartment complex Sunday. Forty-sixyear-old Ronald Royse and 44-year-old Joanna Miles pleaded not guilty Monday in Marlboro District Court to charges of possession and manufacture of methamphetamine and disturbing the peace. The Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports Royce was held on $100,000 cash bail. Miles was held without bail on a probation violation warrant, with $50,000 bail in the new case.
PAWTUCKET—Four men from the Boston area, two of whom are brothers, were arrested for fighting after a brawl erupted outside of Di Nos Restaurant, 908 Main St., on Sunday night. According to police, a call about a disturbance came in at about 8 p.m. When officers arrived, there were about 100 people outside in
the parking lot and many were yelling loudly and gesturing. One man, Sandro Pires, 30, of Dorchester, Mass., was reportedly yelling, swinging his fists and acting disorderly. Another man, Augusto Teixeira, 22, of Boston, was also reportedly yelling and trying to incite others to fight, police said. When officers tried to intervene, they said that Augusto Teixeira
struggled with them and resisted arrest. He broke away at one point and tried to flee but was eventually apprehended. Police said that while officers were trying to take Augusto into custody, his brother, Manuel Teixeira, 22, also of Boston, tried to interfere with the officers and another Boston man, Kleber Lopes Texiera, 20, also got involved in the struggle. All three men were also arrested.
All four men were charged with fighting, police said. Augusto Teixeira was also charged with simple assault and resisting arrest, and Manuel Teixeira was additionally charged with resisting arrest, police said. Police say they do not know what prompted the disturbance. No injuries were reported. —Donna Kenny Kirwan

Lincoln police say neighbor helped nab suspect
LINCOLN – An observant neighbor was getting credit from police Monday for calling attention to a suspect who allegedly broke into in a local home and took a large quantity of valuables and ended up arrested by police following a foot pursuit.
Police Capt. Philip Gould reported the incident began at about 11 a.m. Friday morning in the area of Old Louisquisset Pike and Breakneck Hill Road when police received a report of a man coming out from behind a resident’s home while carrying a green bag. The neighbor knew the owner of the home to be elderly and would not

have had someone at the house or working in yard, according to Gould. “The neighbor had never seen the man before and it certainly didn’t fit,” Gould said. The neighbor in turn called Police Headquarters and Lt. Wayne Bouthillette went out to check the location, Gould said. See SUSPECT, Page A2
EAST PROVIDENCE – In an effort to attract more candidates for the city manager’s position, the City Council last week voted to establish a pay range of between $115,000 and $130,000 annually and to widen the search process with more advertising. At its meeting last Tuesday, the council agreed to have Human Resources Director Kathleen Waterbury coordinate the process of expanding advertising beyond local newspapers and, an online job search site. The council is looking for candidates with a master’s degree in business or public administration, or a related field, with a minimum of three years experience in a management level position in either the public or private sector. The ad for the position that has been running for the past few weeks says the salary will be commensurate with experience. At the urging of Waterbury, new advertising going forward will list the salary range of between $115,000 and $130,000. When he was hired in 2011, former City Manager Peter Graczykowski was offered a salary of $125,000. After Graczykowski was removed from the position by the council last November, the panel appointed former longtime East Providence City Manager Paul E. Lemont as acting city manager at an annual base salary set at $125,000 payable in installments. Lemont will remain in the position until the council appoints a permanent replacement.

SOUTH KINGSTOWN — University of Rhode Island campus police will soon carry guns under a new policy announced Monday, ending the school's status as the only public university in the country where campus police do not carry firearms. "In order to provide the safest environment possible and to ensure a timely response to any threat to the safety of our campuses, our police officers must be equipped properly to function as first responders," university President David Dooley said in a statement announcing his decision. The announcement came a little more than a year after a gun scare at the university's main campus in South Kingstown, when a panic was set off after people inside a lecture
hall said they heard someone say they had a gun. Police found no firearm. Campus police were at the scene in under a minute, but they had to wait around five minutes for armed police from South Kingstown to arrive, said Director of Public Safety Stephen Baker. "It really showed what would happen if indeed there was an active shooter on campus," Baker said. Not everyone supported the change. URI's faculty union argued there was no evidence arming campus police would increase public safety. In May 2013, the Rhode Island Board of Education voted 8-1 to allow leaders at the state's three institutions of higher education to decide for themselves whether to arm campus police.
Baker said they are now working on policies for things such as use of force and carrying firearms. They are also training officers on areas such as mental illness and multiculturalism, and every officer will be required to do a two-week firearms training with the state police. A committee made up of faculty, students, staff and law enforcement will oversee what policies and procedures are put into effect. Baker says many of the officers in his department have carried firearms in other police departments, or as members of the military. He expects his officers will be trained and ready to carry guns by the spring semester of next year. "They want to be first responders for every type of situation. This will give us that ability," he said.
allow the city manager to be removed from office a year after his hire without cause. Graczykowski, who was appointed to city manager in September of 2011, did not have a contract with the city and was considered an employee at will who could be let go by a simple majority vote of the current council. Graczykowski was recently one of five finalists for the city manager’s job in Lowell, Mass., but was passed over in favor of State Rep. Kevin Murphy, a Lowell Democrat who has served in the House of Representatives since 1997 and was also Lowell’s assistant city solicitor from 1983-1996. Follow Joseph Fitzgerald on Twitter @jofitz7.

police to report it,” Gould said. “We usually find out about a case like this hours after it happened and when the person involved is no longer in the area,” Gould said. The items taken included many of the victim’s treasured personal possessions and with the help of the neighbor, all were returned, Gould said. Jones was processed at Police Headquarters on charges of obstructing a police officer in the execution of his duty and felony breaking and entering without the owner’s consent. He was found to be a probation violator following a check with the Attorney General’s Office and transported to the ACI to await a violation hearing, Gould said.
Lemont, 73, an East Providence attorney, was East Providence’s city manager from 1989 to 2003. He also served on the City Council for approximately 10 years, eight of them as vice chairman. He previously worked as an arbitrator, was a partner at Manchester & Lemont, and was Seekonk’s town administrator. He is also the vice chairman of the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council and its administrative hearing officer. On Nov. 5, 2013, the council voted 4 to 1 to remove Graczykowski from office immediately and without cause. Both Graczykowski’s engagement letter and city bylaws
Thomas L. Jones, 37, of Woonsocket, matching a description given police, was found near the Shell Gas Station on Old Louisquisset but ran from Bouthillette when he approached to question him, according to Gould. The suspect was observed carrying the green bag and headed off into nearby woods. Police notified State Police of the incident and Trooper Sean A. McGehearty responded to assist with his K-9 dog Bane, Gould said. Patrolman Joseph Ricci subsequently located Jones hiding under the back porch of a home on Old Jenckes Hill Road and took him into custody with the assistance
of Patrolman Steven Tellier and Lt. Bouthillette. The State Police K-9 unit located the bag the Jones was alleged to have been carrying and discovered a Lenovo laptop valued at $650 inside. Jones was also found to be in possession of jewelry including gold rings, gold lockets and earrings, necklaces, charm bracelets and a diamond ring all valued at more than $7,000, according to police. As the investigation continued police discovered that the items had been taken from a home on Old Louisquisset Pike prior to Jones being spotted in the neighborhood and belonged to a 65-year-old local woman who had not been home at the time. Entry was reported to have been gained after a side door of the woman’s home was
kicked in, according to police. With the help of Town Hall records, Gould said police were able to identify the owner and locate her in the community so that she could be returned to her home and identify the stolen items. The green bag, located about 30 yards from where police located Jones, was identified as a pillow case taken from the victim’s bedroom and all the items taken, with the exception of a pair of earrings, being taken from the victim’s home, police said. Gould said the neighbor’s attention to events in the neighborhood allowed police to apprehend the suspect before the crime had even been reported. “The neighbor not only got a good description of the person but also called the
Maine triple slaying suspects to be tried together
BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A judge has ruled that two men charged in the shooting of three Maine residents whose bodies were found in a burning car in Bangor will be tried together. WABI-TV reports that a judge ruled last week that Randall Daluz of Brockton, Mass., and Nicholas Sexton, of Warwick, R.I., will be tried together before one jury. Jury selection is scheduled to start April 28. Their lawyers had argued for separate trials, saying evidence against one man could unfairly prejudice the jury against the other. The prosecution argued against separate trials. The suspects have pleaded not guilty to killing Daniel Borders, of Hermon; Nicolle Lugdon, of Eddington; and Lucas Tuscano, of Bradford in August 2012. Police say Sexton and Daluz killed the victims in a drug dispute.
Post, Guardian win Pulitzers for NSA revelations
NEW YORK (AP) — The Washington Post and The Guardian won the Pulitzer Prize in public service Monday for revealing the U.S. government's sweeping surveillance efforts in a blockbuster series of stories based on secret documents supplied by NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The Pulitzer for breaking news was awarded to The Boston Globe for its "exhaustive and empathetic" coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing and the manhunt that followed. Two of the nation's biggest and most distinguished newspapers, The Post and The New York Times, won two Pulitzers each, while the other awards were scattered among a variety of publications large and small. The stories about the National Security Agency's spy programs revealed that the government has systematically collected information about millions of Americans' phone calls and emails in its effort to head off terrorist attacks. The disclosures touched off a furious debate in the U.S. over privacy versus security and led President Barack Obama to impose limits on the surveillance. The NSA stories were written by Barton Gellman at The Washington Post and Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewan MacAskill, whose work was published by The Guardian US, the British newspaper's American operation, based in New York. "I think this is amazing news," Poitras said. "It's a testament to Snowden's courage, a vindication of his courage and his desire to let the public know what the government is doing." Snowden, a former contract employee at the NSA, has been charged with espionage and other offenses in the U.S. and could get 30 years in prison if convicted. He has received asylum in Russia. In a statement issued by the Freedom of the Press Foundation, Snowden saluted "the brave reporters and their colleagues who kept working in the face of extraordinary intimidation, including the forced destruction of journalistic materials, the inappropriate use of terrorism laws, and so many other means of pressure to get them to stop." Snowden's supporters have likened his disclosures to the release of the Pentagon Papers, the secret Vietnam War history whose publication by The New York Times in 1971 won the newspaper a Pulitzer. His critics have branded him a traitor to the U.S. "To be rewarding illegal conduct, to be enabling a traitor like Snowden, to me is not something that should be rewarded with a Pulitzer Prize," said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y. "Snowden has violated his oath. He has put American lives at risk." At The Boston Globe, the newsroom was closed off to outsiders, and staff members marked the announcement of the breaking-news award — coming just a day before the anniversary of the bombing — with a moment of silence for the victims. "There's nobody in this room who wanted to cover this story. Each and every one of us hopes that nothing like it ever happens again on our watch," Globe Editor Brian McGrory told the newsroom. The bombing last April 15 that killed three people and wounded more than 260 also led to a Pulitzer in the feature photography category for Josh Haner of The New York Times, for his photo essay on a blast victim who lost his legs. The Times also won in the breaking-news photography category, for Tyler Hicks' coverage of the Westgate mall terrorist attack in Kenya. The Washington Post won a second Pulitzer in the explanatory reporting category, for Eli Saslow's look at food stamps in America. The Pulitzers are given out each year by Columbia University on the recommendation of a board of distinguished journalists and others. The two winners of the public service award will receive gold medals. The other awards carry a $10,000 prize. The Center for Public Integrity's Chris Hamby won for investigative reporting for detailing how lawyers and doctors rigged a system to deny benefits to coal miners suffering from black lung disease. The prize for national reporting went to David Philipps of The Gazette of Colorado Springs, Colo., for an investigation that found that the Army has discharged escalating numbers of traumatized combat veterans who commit crimes at home. The Pulitzer for international reporting was awarded to Jason Szep and Andrew R.C. Marshall of Reuters for their coverage of the violent persecution of a Muslim minority in Myanmar. The Oregonian newspaper won for editorial writing for its pieces on reforms in Oregon's public employee pension fund. The prize was the third in the newspaper's history for editorial writing. The Tampa Bay Times' Will Hobson and Michael LaForgia won in local reporting for writing about squalid housing for the city's homeless. "These reporters faced long odds. They had to visit dicey neighborhoods late at night. They had to encourage county officials to be courageous and come forth with records," said Neil Brown, Tampa Bay Times editor and vice president. "And in the end, what they were ultimately doing was standing up for people who had no champion and no advocate." The Philadelphia Inquirer's architecture critic Inga Saffron won for criticism. At The Charlotte Observer, Kevin Siers received the award for editorial cartooning. No award was handed out for feature writing. Sig Gissler, who administers the prizes at Columbia, said the reporters on the NSA story "helped stimulate the very important discussion about the balance between privacy and security, and that discussion is still going on." The Post's Gelman said the stories were the product of the "most exhilarating and frightening year of reporting." "I'm especially proud of the category," he said. "Public service feels like a validation of our belief in the face of some pretty strong criticism that the people have a right to take part in drawing the boundaries of secret intelligence in a democracy."

Ruling on Massachusetts ban on painkiller pending
BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts' ban of a powerful new painkiller, Zohydro, remains in effect for now. U.S. District Court Judge Rya Zobel heard more arguments Monday in a lawsuit that claims the state is overstepping its authority in restricting drug use within Massachusetts in violation of the U.S. Constitution. The judge declined to immediately rule on a request for a temporary stay of the ban. She did not say when she would make a decision. The ban, issued in March, is believed to be the first attempt by a state to block a federally-approved drug, according to the National Alliance for Model State Drug Laws. Zohydro is a narcotic, especially helpful in treating pain in patients who can't take acetaminophen. San Diego-based drugmaker Zogenix asked for the temporary stay while the company seeks an order to lift the ban permanently. Gov. Deval Patrick has declared a public health emergency in light of widespread prescription drug abuse in the state, but has said he would lift the ban on Zohydro if the drugmaker would develop a more abuse-resistant form. The state argues that Zohydro will "exacerbate a severe public health crisis" because the drug can be easily crushed, then snorted or injected to create an immediate and potentially lethal high. Zogenix argued Monday that the medication has already been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Stephen Hollman, an attorney for Zogenix, suggested that giving statewide latitude to regulate prescription drugs would erode federal authority. "Congress intended FDA approvals to have nationwide effect," Hollman said. "Imagine 50 states each imposing a different formulation requirement ... That's the too-many-cooks situation." He argued that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that the FDA establishes a national "floor" for drug regulation. States can impose additional safety restrictions, such as better warning labels, but cannot "eviscerate the floor established by FDA approval." Assistant State Attorney General Jo Ann Shotwell Kaplan countered that the Massachusetts ban does not affect the federal approval process or the company's ability to sell the drug elsewhere in the United States. She said the ban simply represents "another hurdle" the company must surpass in order to market the drug in Massachusetts.

quit a good-paying job to come to Pawtucket and brew beer, bemoaned the tangle of “federal, state and local” permits and licenses required to open for business in the Ocean State, many of which he claims are “out of date.” Once a year, Garrison said, he has to go to Providence to get a criminal background check to make beer. Not even people who work in schools have to do that each and every year, he said. Rob Yaffe, who owns three restaurants, the Garden Grille and Wildflour Vegan Bakery and Juice Bar in Pawtucket and the Grange in Providence, agreed, saying the state currently “has a really poorlydesigned system of agencies, bureaucracy and paperwork” that makes it harder on people who are trying to run a business. “It is a systems problem,” Yaffe told reporters on Monday. “If it were centralized it would be better for business people.” He said small business should be put in the forefront – “as important as a large hotel or a mall” – guided by someone who “proactively nurtures the entrepreneurial spirit of the state.” Raimondo said she intends to be that someone if she is elected governor in November. Touting her own experience starting the venture capital firm Point Judith Capital and running it for 10 years, the state general treasurer says she has “plans to fix the way we deal with small business” in Rhode Island. Noting that 95 percent of the employers in Rhode Island are small businesses, and they employ more than 50 percent of the state’s workforce, Raimondo said, “small business is the lifeblood of this state.” Currently, she said, state regulators and agencies “are almost in an adversarial relationship with small business. We need to change the culture, change the tone. We should be reaching out to small businesses and saying, ‘How can we help you?’ ” The way for Rhode Island to get out of the “jobs crisis” she says it is in, Raimondo contends, “is to get the businesses that are here already to expand here.” That, she said, requires “leadership and the ability to make things happen. “We are beyond tinkering; we are beyond small steps,” she declared. “The highest unemployment rate in the nation demands bold steps.” Pledging that she would review every single regulation on the books in her first year as governor, Raimondo said a key to her small business plan is regulatory reform and reducing the cost of doing business. She also wants to make it easier to start and run a business, asserting, “We can’t be a state where people with great ideas are discouraged from starting a business

Candidate touts growth, development on visit to brewery
PAWTUCKET – When you want to know about small business development in Rhode Island, Nick Garrison, founder of Foolproof Brewing Co., is a good guy to talk to. Garrison, who invited Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gina Raimondo to his Grotto Avenue brewery to unveil the fifth part of her economic development proposal concerning streamlining regulations for startup companies and small businesses, says, “There are not many growing industries in Rhode Island, but craft brewing is one of them.” The 31-year-old, who said he
because the process is too hard. We need to help Rhode Islanders turn good ideas into new businesses by increasing entrepreneurial training, education and mentorship through our public colleges. We should create a ‘concierge service’ to give startups and small businesses a person to help them navigate government regulations and provide a ‘startup and small business toolkit’ so that entrepreneurs know exactly what they need to get their businesses going and have access to resources that will help them hit the ground running.” Other parts of Raimondo’s plan involve improving access to capital, particularly for women-owned and minority-owned businesses, workforce development, and “using collaboration and innovation to foster a culture of entrepreneurship.”

City man facing pot, gun charges
PAWTUCKET — Based on what they said was “credible information” received, Pawtucket Police searched the apartment of a Benefit Street man and found an illegal pot-growing operation and two guns. On April 10, members of the Pawtucket Police Special Squad executed a search warrant at 497 Benefit St. Officers took the tenant, 30year-old Najib R. Barros, into custody. During the search of Barros’ apartment, officers reportedly found and seized 19 marijuana plants, 3.29 pounds of dried marijuana, 781.5 grams of marijuana butter, two firearms (a shotgun and a .22-caliber revolver), equipment used in the cultivation, manufacture and production of marijuana, scales and packaging materials associated with the street level distribution of illegal drugs, and $1,023 in cash. Barros was held at the Pawtucket Police Department overnight and brought to District Court in Providence on April 11. He was arraigned on manufacture of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, two counts of possession of a firearm while committing a controlled substance violation, distributing/manufacturing of controlled substance near a school, and maintain a common nuisance/controlled substances. Barros was ordered held without bail at the ACI pending an April 25 bail hearing. — Donna Kenny Kirwan

PAWTUCKET – Under a new program launched last summer, Pawtucket’s recycling tonnage continues to rise, while the amount of overall trash tonnage going to the state landfill is on the decrease. City officials say that since the city moved to an automated biweekly collection program with its private trash hauler, the amount of recycled materials measured by weight has continually risen in same-month comparisons to the prior year figures. The city’s recycling rate, historically about 17.5 percent, is now at 23.4 percent, according to Public Works Director Lance Hill. He said figures were based on data compiled by Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation (RIRRC), which operates the Central Landfill in Johnston. Meanwhile, the city has generated approximately 2,500 fewer tons of regular trash through the first three quarters of the fiscal year (through March 31, 2014) than in the same period of 2013, saving $32 per ton in tipping fees at the landfill, Hill said. Recyclables are disposed of at no charge. “These independent figures continue to show that our projections for a significant boost in recycling remain on target under the new program,” Mayor Donald R. Grebien said. That “greening” effect will also be extending to the city’s ballfields, with recycling carts now being installed in time for the spring sports season, Hill said. Ballplayers and those watching the games are encouraged to use the blue bins for disposing of their plastic and glass bottles and containers, and paper and cardboard items, the same as they do with their at-home recycling.

Why Facebook is getting into the banking game
Who would want to use Facebook as a bank? That's the question that immediately arises from news that the social network intends to get into the electronic money business. According to the Financial Times, Facebook is close to receiving authorization from Ireland's central bank to become an "electronic money institution." The status would allow it to process transfers and payments throughout Europe, where the market for non-bank financial services appears to be heating up with big new entrants such as Vodafone. The customers Facebook is targeting, though, might be as much in developing nations as in Europe. The developed world, and Europe in particular, is far from the best place to break into banking. Most people are already perfectly capable of sending money to each other in various ways. According to the World Bank, the share of adults with bank accounts ranges from 98 percent in Germany to 45 percent in Romania, and financial inclusion rates in Europe will inevitably converge. Google has had an emoney license in Britain for almost three years, but its Google Wallet service appears to be bringing in little revenue. Full functionality, including personal transfers, is available only in the U.S., where 88 percent of people have bank accounts. Facebook, however, may be taking aim at a different demographic: Migrants who work in the developed world and send money home to the developing world. This is an area ripe for disruption. The companies, some bank-affiliated and some independent, that now dominate the market tend to charge a lot for their services and mostly aren't much fun to use. Last year, they channeled a total of $404 billion in remittances, a number that the World Bank predicts will expand to $436 billion. The most expensive "corridor" runs from South Africa to Zambia: It costs $21 to send $200, according to the World Bank. The biggest recipient country is India, whose residents received $71 billion last year. Facebook has about 100 million users in India. One can send the euro equivalent of $200 from Germany to India for $1 in a matter of days using a London startup called TransferWise, set up by Skype's first

employee Taavet Hinrikus and another Estonian, Kristo Kaarmann. Facebook might be able to improve on that by guaranteeing instantaneous transfers, and perhaps by offering lower prices, because it is so huge. Facebook is reportedly talking to TransferWise and its peers about some kind of partnership. A European e-money license is only one piece of the puzzle Facebook needs to assemble if it is to muscle into the migrant remittance market. It would need to secure regulatory approval and set up or acquire an infrastructure in India and other large developing countries. The important part is making it easy for people to withdraw cash. Vodafone's e-money operation, M-Pesa, solved this in Kenya by setting up a nationwide network of agents who pocket most of the commission the service earns. Facebook has ample motivation to try something similar: If it made a quarter of a cent on each dollar transferred to India by migrant workers, it would have a $177 million revenue stream. If companies such as Facebook and Google build up experience serving the unbanked in the developing world, they could someday challenge retail banks in rich countries. For the time being, getting involved in the remittance industry could be an interesting way to monetize user bases that are not particularly valued by advertisers.

A program conservatives should love
We are at a point at which we will soon have vicious ideological debates over motherhood and apple pie. Don’t laugh. If we can agree on anything across our philosophical divides, surely we can support efforts to promote voluntary service by our fellow citizens and to strengthen our nation’s extraordinary network of civic and religious charities. This shared set of commitments led to one of the few bipartisan initiatives of President Obama’s time E.J. Dionne in office. On April 21, it will be five years since the president signed the Serve America Act, the final product of one of Congress’s most creative odd couples. Again and again, Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah and Democratic Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts found ways to legislate together. The law aimed at authorizing 250,000 service slots by 2017 was the unlikely duo’s capstone project before Kennedy’s death. At a very modest cost to government — those who serve essentially get living expenses and some scholarship assistance later — AmeriCorps gives mostly young Americans a chance to spend a year helping communities and those in need while nurturing thousands of organizations across the country. Senior Corps provides Americans 55 or older a chance to serve, too. AmeriCorps sent out its first volunteers 20 years ago this fall. Since then, more than 800,000 Americans have participated in the program. By giving life to this great venture in generosity, our government did something that taxpayers, regardless of party, can be proud of. One politician who speaks often about the importance of civil society groups is Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). Ryan rightly talks about the “vast middle ground between government and the individual,” and of empowering “community organizations to improve people’s lives.” Yet Ryan’s new budget comes out against apple pie. It zeroes out AmeriCorps. Poof. Gone. Rather than denouncing Ryan for this, I urge him instead to take a second look on the basis of his own principles and realize the opportunity he has. The best move for someone who loves the activities of the nonprofits as much as Ryan says he does is to try to trump the president. Obama’s budget proposes $1.05 billion, a slight increase that would allow AmeriCorps, including Senior Corps, to expand to more than 100,000 positions. It’s good that Obama and Senate Democrats have worked to keep the program funded in the face of House Republican resistance. But even the number Obama proposes amounts to slightly more than half of the 200,000 spots for 2014 that Hatch and Kennedy envisioned in their original bill. It’s not as if young people don’t want to serve. AmeriCorps had 580,000 applications for 80,000 openings; Teach for America had 55,000 applications for 6,000 slots . Alan Khazei, co-chair of the Franklin Project at the Aspen Institute, which promotes national service, points to the 16 percent unemployment rate for 16- to 24-year-olds. Service, he argues, is a gateway. It can lead to “employment opportunities and help young Americans develop important job skills for their future careers.” If Ryan isn’t convinced yet, he should talk to Wendy Spencer, the chief executive of the Corporation for National and Community Service. He’d have a lot in common politically with Spencer, a Republican. She worked in the private sector, for a local Chamber of Commerce and a United Way, and held positions in former Florida governor Jeb Bush’s administration in Florida. She headed the state’s Commission on Volunteerism for the last three Republican governors. Spencer has been inventive at a time of tough budgets. At the end of March, she announced a partnership with Citi Foundation and the Points of Light Institute involving $10 million in private financing to engage 25,000 low-income young Americans to lead volunteer service projects even as they get mentoring and training from Citi employees. Encouraged by Obama, federal agencies are using AmeriCorps volunteers in new ways. The Federal Emergency Management Agency Corps, for example, can deploy 1,600 volunteers in disaster relief emergencies while the School Turnaround corps has used hundreds of volunteers in repairing troubled schools. Spencer views the federal service programs as a “trifecta.” The organizations receiving AmeriCorps and Senior Corps members see their capacity enhanced as full-time volunteers leverage the work of thousands more. And, of course, the participants themselves benefit, as do the people they serve. If you wish, Mr. Ryan, you can let the president get all the credit for saving this worthy endeavor and for fostering innovation. Or you can go him one better by expanding it. You could use AmeriCorps as a model for a practical, locally oriented, conservative approach to government. Because that’s exactly what it is. E.J. Dionne is a syndicated columnist.
Real spying is much more boring than depicted on ‘The Americans’
The big bad bear from Moscow is back, and not just in Crimea. FX's "The Americans," about deep-cover KGB "illegals" living in Washington, D.C., in the early 1980s, is now midway through its second season. There's much to like about the show, from top-notch performances by Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, to their reliance on clunky, retro-spy technology, to the clever manipulation of a common fear felt, no doubt, by most children at one point or another that their parents have secret identities (it ain't paranoia if it's true). But I was in the intelligence business too, and a fundamental part of the series irks me. Even though the CIA hired me after the 9/11 attacks to fight a new menace -- terrorism and Islamic extremism -- the corridors at Langley still echo with the footsteps of old timers who recall the protean fight against the Soviets. And regardless of how that conflict is portrayed in Joe Weisberg's captivating series, it was not a sequence of increasingly lethal encounters between U.S. and Russian intelligence services. To be sure, much about the show is based on reality. The premise -- that Russian spooks were living double lives in the suburbs -- was inspired in part by a real-life network of Russian illegals (made famous by the bombshell Anna Chapman) that was busted by the FBI in 2010. Then there is the series of background events -the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Alexander Haig's controversial statement that "I'm in control here" - that situate the drama on an authentic historical timeline. But "The Americans' " fidelity to fact often ends there: The KGB certainly ran significant intelligence-gathering operations during the Cold War -- and even carried out "dirty tricks," like organizing a racist letterwriting campaign, purportedly by American white supremacists, against African diplomats at the United Nations, and desecrating American synagogues and Jewish cemeteries to stir up discord and prove that the United States was a lousy place to live. At the end of the day, however, the KGB never actually killed anyone in America. Washington was a violent place back in the Reagan years, but not because Russian spies were murdering folks left and right. After all, killing people -- like the security guards, former assets and random civilians that bite the dust in "The Americans" — in pursuit of intelligence is fraught with danger. Political murder would not only have focused America's domestic security apparatus onto Soviet affairs like a laser, it would have also threatened bilateral relations — with potentially devastating consequences. For instance, when U.S. government contractor Raymond Davis shot and killed two thieves on a Lahore street in 2011, the incident touched off a massive diplomatic row that threatened to upend an already-strained U.S.-Pakistan relationship.
By Aki Peritz
If the Soviets had behaved similarly on the streets of Washington during the height of the Cold War, they could have set off a massively destabilizing tit-for-tat escalation. It should come as no surprise, then, that Cold War espionage involved more dead drops, covert meetings and brush passes than brazen assassination attempts. In fact, there's only ever been one assassination of a Soviet defector in D.C. — in 1941 at the Bellevue Hotel, and it may have actually been a suicide. If Stalin's genocidal People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs, or NKVD, could only muster one possible killing in America, Leonid Brezhnev and Yuri Andropov's KGB would not have dared. So what were these Soviet illegals actually doing in the suburbs? Probably not too much, according to retired KGB Maj. Gen. Oleg Kalugin, who wrote in his memoirs that the deep cover agents were the "least productive" of the KGB's branches working in the U.S. capital. The most recent batch of busted Russian deep-cover agents apparently only managed to collect open-source material during their stay in America -information that could have been discovered by anyone with Internet access. In fact, the U.S. Justice Department didn't charge any of them with espionage because they never actually sent any classified information back to Moscow. It wasn't exactly the stuff of a Robert Ludlum thriller. Nor were American spies the kind of cowboys portrayed in "The Americans." Spoiler alert: Much of the first season revolves around how the members of an FBI counterintelligence unit begin to take their jobs so personally that they try to kill a top KGB official at the Soviet Embassy, spurred purely by revenge. Even more incredibly, an American assassin manages to take out a KGB general in his Moscow apartment. Sure, there was plenty of skullduggery in the 1980s, but killing diplomatically protected individuals in America is a bridge too far. And sending assassins to Moscow to kill KGB officials is pure lunacy. Aki Peritz is a national security adviser at Third Way, a Washington-based think tank, and a former CIA counterterrorism analyst.

Enthusiastic Grebien opens bid for third mayoral term
PAWTUCKET — The reopening of two bridges during his tenure — one that is vital to interstate travel and commerce and the other to local — created a natural link for Mayor Donald Grebien to point to when he spoke about progress and the reasons he is running for reelection. On Monday night, the city’s incumbent Democratic mayor officially launched his bid for a third term in front of family, friends and supporters at the Portuguese Social Club at 131 School St. Looking energetic and sounding upbeat, the 46year-old Grebien gave a speech that centered on the city’s tenuous financial condition when he took office and the many ways that he and his administration turned the situation around. He said he is running again because, despite the accomplishments, there is still much work to be done. “It is too critical to start turning our backs on the progress,” he stated. The mayor thanked his wife, Laureen, and teenage children, Alexa and Connor, for their support and for putting up with the sacrifices that come with having a husband and father who works as mayor. “You keep it all in perspective, in a way that reminds me every day why I chose to serve our city, and to work hard to make it a better place to live, work and raise a family,” Grebien said. He also said he wanted to recognize and thank the members of his administration and each municipal employee for their dedication and hard work on behalf of the city's residents. Grebien noted that when he took office three years ago, his administration inherited a host of serious problems, including a city on the verge of bankruptcy, a $12 million hole halfway through the budget year, and substantial long-term debts. He said he also stepped in to an operation where all sides of government were not working together, especially with the School Committee, and where there was a “lack of transparency and accountability.” The mayor also said that when assumed his role in 2011, there was little focus on economic development and new job creation, and not enough attention being paid to “quality of life” issues in the neighborhoods. “Most of all, there was a lack of vision for our city's future and the new direction Pawtucket needed to go,” he said. “My administration has worked very hard to change all that, and I think you can see that by the results.” “We are now passing through the doors to a better future that began opening wider last year. We have begun to lay out a blueprint with strong emphasis on fiscal responsibility, transparency, connectivity, reviving public and private spaces, and promoting economic development,” Grebien said. The mayor added, “The connectivity represented by the reopening of the Conant Street and Pawtucket River bridges will now move in the next stage toward development of a commuter rail stop that will be a game-changer for economic development in the city. We are building a bridge to progress,” he stated, using a phrase that was a cornerstone of his speech. As examples of this progress, Grebien cited the revival of long-neglected spaces along Division Street that will see construction of a medical facility and redevelopment of prime city property that will transform this riverfront area. The mayor also noted last year’s arrival of Tunstall Americas’ medical call center that brought 250 jobs and the promise of more, and the recent news that Pet Food Experts is bringing its corporate headquarters and 70 employees into the downtown. Additionally, Grebien said there are other private devel-
opments happening around the city, from the Esten Avenue project to the redevelopment of the former American Insulated Wire property and the upcoming building project planned for the old bowling lanes on the Pawtucket/Providence line. “These are the kinds of investments people become willing to make when they feel a city is headed in the right direction,” he said. Grebien also spoke of a continued push with partners at the state and federal levels to bring commuter rail service to Pawtucket and to make Slater Mill a national park, “both of which would be economic engines for our city. “ In the neighborhoods, Grebien noted improvements made to two local playgrounds and the planned Slater Park pavilion, as well as the changeover in the trash and recycling program. He also cited two major upcoming bond requests that are important to the city’s infrastructure, one to reinvest in school buildings and another to repave miles of deteriorating local roads. “So even as we were one of only two communities in the state this year to reduce our tax levy — and that's important — in a budget with a zero tax increase for businesses and residents, we have found ways to hire more police and firefighters and begin to invest in major equipment and infrastructure improvement,” Grebien stated. He also said he and his
administration have been working to improve the city's financial image and bond rating. Grebien also spoke of a new spirit of cooperation which included working with the School Department to integrate IT functions, and with the School Committee and City Council to remedy a cumulative budget deficit in the schools account. Prior to Grebien’s speech, several speakers lent their endorsement to the mayor, including School Committeewoman Sandra Cano. As a Colombian immigrant, she spoke of how education opened doors for her in her own life, and said she is pleased at the way Grebien supports the local school system and wants to see it improve. City Councilor-at Large Albert Vitali also spoke in support of Grebien, calling him hardworking and approachable. “He is the right mayor for the right time for the city of Pawtucket,” Vitali stated. For a table of supporters from the Doyle Manor senior housing, the mayor’s re-election bid was more personal. “I think he’s done a good job. He’s a family man. He grew up in Pawtucket and his children are growing up in Pawtucket, so he cares about what happens here,” said Gail Champagne. Anita Perry concurred, saying, “He’s a good guy. Whenever we’ve called with a problem, he’s always tried to help everybody out.”

Questions linger year after Boston Marathon bombs
AP Legal Affairs Writer
BOSTON — A surveillance video shows a man prosecutors say is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev placing a bomb near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, just yards from where an 8-year-old boy was killed when it exploded. A hand-scrawled confession condemning U.S. actions in Muslim countries was found on the inside wall of the boat where Tsarnaev was captured four frantic days later. A year after twin pressure-cooker bombs shattered the marathon and paralyzed the area for days, federal prosecutors say they have a trove of evidence ready to use against the sur-
viving suspect, but many questions remain. What roles did Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, play in planning and orchestrating the attack? Would they really have launched a second attack in New York? Did federal authorities underreact to a warning from Russia that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was becoming radicalized? With Tamerlan Tsarnaev killed in a police shootout days after the attack, some of those questions may never be fully answered. "The obvious one is the motivation and how could two young men who were in a country that, from all appearances, was very good to them end up this radical," said former Boston Police
Commissioner Ed Davis, who helped lead the investigation. The bombings last April 15 killed three people and injured more than 260 near the finish line of one of the world's most famous marathons. At least 16 people lost limbs. Dzhokhar has pleaded not guilty to a 30-count federal indictment that carries the possibility of the death penalty. The brothers, ethnic Chechens who lived in the former Soviet republic of Kyrgyzstan and the Dagestan region of Russia, settled in Cambridge, outside Boston, after moving to the U.S. as children with their family more than a decade ago. Dzhokhar's defense team,
which includes two of the nation's top anti-death penalty lawyers, appear to be building a case that Tamerlan, 26, was the driving force behind the bombings. In court documents, they've focused on Dzhokhar's young age — 19 at the time of the bombings — and the influence his older brother had on him.
A congressional report released last month said U.S. intelligence agencies missed a chance to detain Tamerlan when he returned from a trip to Dagestan in July 2012. Russian authorities had warned the FBI in 2011 about Tsarnaev becoming radicalized. The FBI investigated, and his name was added to a terrorism watch
list. But he was still able to fly to Dagestan — an area that has become the center of an Islamic insurgency — spend six months there, and return to the United States. "There was not sufficient weight put on the information we got from Russia," said U.S. Rep. William Keating, D-Mass., a member of the House Committee on Homeland Security.

Signs of an abuser apply to women as well as men
I read your Jan. 8 column about the warning signs of an abuser. Would you use your influence to say that men are also victims of abuse? My son was in a three-year relationship with a woman who scored 15 out of 15 on your list. We knew it was a toxic relationship, but he couldn’t see that. The night he came to us for help, battered and bloody, I finally took a stand. It took six months to get her out of his life. My son was ashamed to be a battered man, and she had told him that men who call 911 go to jail. It kept him from calling. Please, Abby, help to change that. If you use this, please keep me anonymous. He thinks I’m an “interfering mom,” but at least he’s not being abused anymore. I love him and miss him terribly. — INTERFERING MOM DEAR MOM: I’m glad you wrote so I can emphasize that abusers can be members of both sexes, from every economic level and sexual orientation. I received a TON of mail about this: you’ve stated it well. All I can add is that men who suffer physical abuse at the hands of a partner should go to an emergency room for treatment so their injuries can be documented, then file a formal complaint and end the relationship. counselor by calling the Domestic Abuse Helpline for Men and Women at 8887HELPLINE (888-743-5754) in the U.S. and Canada. The website is — PROFESSIONAL MAN IN ATLANTA Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

For an excellent guide to becoming a better conversationalist and a more sociable person, order “How to Be Popular.” Send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby, Popularity Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 610540447. (Shipping and handling are included in the price.)
Gay people need to read those warning signs because abusers abound in the gay community, too. I have gay and lesbian friends who were involved with abusers. Gay and lesbian centers offer counseling for this. LGBT people face the same problems as straights do. — MIKE IN DAYTONA
Jeanne Phillips risky sexual encounters with men and women, cocaine, alcohol and marijuana. I became aware of her blackouts and outrageous behavior just before our wedding. I finally left after two years to avoid committing a crime in response to her physical abuse, chronic infidelities, psychological cruelty and pathological intoxication. Please urge men to report their abusers, file charges and flee bad situations! I had no way of knowing what lay ahead for me back then. Do you have advice for other men contemplating marriage to a pretty party girl? Today I’m happily married to a deeply beautiful and noble woman, and grateful to have found her. — SET FREE IN NORTH CAROLINA DEAR SET FREE: I think
I spent four years in a relationship before I realized I was being abused. My lady friend pushed for a lifelong commitment within a month of our meeting, was jealous and controlling, shut my friends out, cursed and hit me on more than one occasion and, when I protested, she’d say she was “just trying to get my attention,” or “I only got what I deserved.” When I finally told her I was leaving, she threatened to kill me. I have since learned that lots of men suffer psychological damage and physical danger from an abusive spouse or partner. Please inform your male readers they can get help from a skilled therapist or

Thank you for including both “he and she” in the warning signs of abusers. My second marriage was a sad and unhealthy rebound affair. My ex was attractive, talented and host to multiple addictions —
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Streamlining your life doesn’t have to be a painful process, and you have a shining incentive for lightening your load. You feel absolutely ready to lose what you’ll never miss. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It isn’t necessary to categorize each thought you have as either true or false. There’s much that can’t be known. However, discerning between helpful and not helpful thoughts will enhance your well-being. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Whatever the source of your greatest indecision may be, today you will feel clearer on the subject. You may even be ready to make a choice. Rest assured, you can always change your mind later if you want to. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you have the feeling that there won’t be a perfect or right moment, you’re correct. So just begin now and proceed. Tonight you’ll laugh with someone very dear to you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). A proverb suggests that whenever you point your finger at someone, there are three pointing back at you. Today, you’ll need to be even more careful than usual in how you describe and discuss others. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You will realize the benefit in something you once considered to be a mistake. Given the choice, maybe you wouldn’t repeat it, but you’ll be glad for how everything worked out. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll feel inventive, and it will be fun for you to dream up ideas and ponder the different ways that you might make them happen. Tonight your knack for special relations will be useful. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A bit of skepticism will prove healthy. You don’t always have to agree with your own thoughts. Just because it’s running through your head doesn’t make it yours. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). You’ll do the right thing at the right time, which sometimes happens to be the wrong thing. You’ll commit to fun and folly while you have the chance. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you are well aware of the risks involved in a situation, you prefer to be around the optimistic people who don’t mention the dangers at every turn. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re mighty influential today, and the best way to apply this superpower is to convince yourself to do what’s good for you. Once you convince yourself, it won’t matter to you who else is convinced. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You were given the power of great personal drive for a reason, and you’ll use it well. To do what it takes to make your plans happen more or less the way you imagine them is an act of love and self-respect.

Primed for another Cup run Lions pull
away from Chargers
Strong fourth quarter results in 11-5 triumph
By JON BAKER LINCOLN — Lincoln High head coach Mike Ethier believed his squad to be a little too aggressive and devil-may-care during the first half of a Division III clash against Chariho Regional High on Monday afternoon. That’s why he corralled his troops at the break and issued the game plan for the final 24 minutes. “I told them they needed to settle down, play with control, take care of the ball and make good passes,” Ethier offered. “I said we needed to play good positional defense.” Those words didn’t go unheard as the Lions rallied for seven goals in those remaining two quarters while yielding just one as the Lions crushed the Chargers, 11-5, at Tiberii Field. Seniors Andrew Potter and Mike Enos each closed with a hat trick and an assist, while classmate Chris Leclerc chipped in two tallies and four feeds and fellow 12thgrader Spencer Rao added a pair of goals. Sophomore Ben Hevner contributed a tally and an assist to lift Lincoln to 3-1 in DIII action (3-2 overall). “We just cut down on our mistakes in the second half, pure and simple,” Ethier noted afterward. “We were throwing the ball away. Down the stretch, we had some penalties, but we scored on two of them. That’s a result of hard work and just making good passes. “I thought Ross Magliocco played great (between the pipes),” he added of his sophomore netminder, who finished with eight saves. “He’s our back-up goalie, but he got the start because our usual starter wasn’t able to play. He stepped into that starting role and led the defense with terrific communication. “He also made some really good saves, and cleared the ball well.” The Lions opened the fourth 12-minute stanza with a mere 6-5 cushion, and they were shorthanded after junior Tommy Janicki had earned a one-minute slashing penalty late in the third. That was served entirely in the fourth on a delayed call due to Chariho’s possession. Yet with Lincoln down a man and only 21 seconds elapsed, Rao took a pass from

If the Boston Bruins are going to be playing hockey in June for the third time in four years, contributions from players such as, from left, Patrice Bergeron, Tuukka Rask and Zdeno Chara are imperative. The Bruins open the Stanley Cup playoffs this Friday at home against fellow Original Six member Detroit.
Bruins bring experience to NHL’s second season
By HOWARD ULMAN AP Sports Writer BOSTON — The Boston Bruins had the NHL's best record, allowed the second fewest goals and scored the third most. 10 things to They have four watch in the strong lines, three solid defensive NHL playoffs pairings and one of the best goalies. — See page C3 And they were 1-3 in the regular season against their first-round playoff opponent. The Detroit Red Wings will be back in town Friday night. "They always give us some good games," Boston coach Claude Julien said. The Bruins gave them a terrible one Nov. 27 in Detroit, losing 6-1, their most lopsided loss of the season and one of only five games in which they allowed more than four goals. "Everything we did tonight was just a disaster," Julien said then. Most everything they've done since then has been impressive, going 38-10-9. For the season, the Bruins outscored opponents by 84 goals while Detroit was outscored by eight. Outstanding goaltending by Tuukka Rask, who led the NHL with seven shutouts, a combination of youth and experience and the allaround brilliance of center Patrice Bergeron make the Bruins favorites. Bergeron played with his usual excellence defensively and scored 30 goals, one less than his career-high in 10 seasons, all with the Bruins. "It's the best I've seen him," Boston general
manager Peter Chiarelli said Monday. "The whole two-way component of his game is so good, it's always good. It's not by accident you hear his name in the Hart Trophy conversation" for MVP. Jarome Iginla, a 17-year veteran, also scored 30 goals after signing as a free agent in the offseason. He's fit in seamlessly on a team with 14 of its 18 top skaters, plus Rask, who played in last season's playoffs. "If they were coming into the playoffs for the first time, it might dominate their mind all day, like 'what's it going to be like?' " Chiarelli said. "These players know what they have to do." Many of those players were on the team that won the Stanley Cup in 2010-11. Last season the Bruins made it to the final where they lost in six games to the Chicago Blackhawks. See BRUINS, page C3
By ERIC BENEVIDES SCITUATE — One third of its way through its Division II-North schedule, North Smithfield is looking like not only the team to beat in the North, but also one of the elite squads in the entire division. The Northmen continued their spectacular start on Monday afternoon by winning for the fifth time in as many games, defeating Scituate by a 5-1 score at Manning Field behind an 11-hit attack and another masterful outing by ace pitcher Karissa Carlton. The senior standout, who was 48 hours removed from delivering a perfect game against Johnston that saw her strike out 15 of the 21 batters she faced, ended up tossing a two-hitter at the Spartans that featured 14 strikeouts. Carlton also walked two batters (only her fourth and fifth free passes of the year) and carried a nohit bid into the sixth, only to watch Alissa Harris ruin it by leading off with a slap bunt single to the left side of the diamond.
Carlton flawless on the mound as Northmen win
ERNEST A. BROWN / Blackstone Valley Sports photo
Fresh off a perfect game against Johnston, North Smithfield pitcher Karissa Carlton fired a two-hitter with 14 strikeouts Monday in the Northmen’s 5-1 win over Scituate.
“As good as Karissa was against Johnston, she was even better today,” said N.S. coach Paul Mercier. “She pitched a great game.” In her five starts, covering 31 innings, Carlton has been truly magnificent. She has struck out 60 batters, yielded just eight hits (including back-toback one-hitters to open the season), and allowed just three runs. And while Carlton has been splendid, so has the Northmen’s lineup, which came into the day averaging exactly 11 hits per game and matched that total against Scituate pitcher Jess Santanelli. And the same can be said for the Northmen defensively. Playing with a new-look infield that consists of two juniors and two sophomores, the Northmen played errorless ball yesterday and has committed just two errors all season long. “We’re very happy,” noted Mercier, whose team has outscored its opponents by a 46-3 count. “Again, Karissa’s been really solid, and we’re playing good defense behind her. We’re very young this year, but the girls are doing what they have to do and they’re still learning, and that’s all See NORTHMEN, page C6
Sixers put the breaks on Celtics’ two-game winning streak
Philadelphia's win. Kelly Olynyk scored 28 points to lead the Celtics. Jeff Green had 27 points and Avery Bradley added 23. Rajon Rondo finished with eight points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. Carter-Williams had a key steal and pass to Wroten in the final minutes which led to Wroten making two free throws in helping keep the Sixers ahead in their final home game of the season. Philadelphia led by 19 points in the second quarter, but Johnson hit 3-pointers on consecutive Boston possessions to trim the deficit to two as part of a 14-3 run to close the third quarter. After an 11-4 Philadelphia run to open the fourth quarter, Boston again got within two points several times down the stretch but could never pull even. Philadelphia took three of four games from Boston in winning the season series for the first
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Michael CarterWilliams had 21 points and 14 rebounds, Tony Wroten scored 20 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Boston Celtics 113-108 Monday night. Chris Johnson appeared to hit the gametying 3-pointer with 0.9 seconds remaining but stepped out of bounds before attempting the desperation shot. James Anderson made two free throws a half-second later to seal
time since 2006-07. The banged-up Celtics played without Jared Sullinger (left ankle sprain), Jerryd Bayless (hyperextended right knee) and Kris Humphries (sore right knee). After missing the past two games with a strained left shin, Rondo returned to action and dominated the game's first five minutes before Thaddeus Young's elbow to the head forced him to briefly leave the game.

REGIONAL Clippers romp past Lions, Chieftains SCOREBOARD
GLOCESTER — With an outstanding overall effort from junior Jared Talbert, Cumberland High cruised to a pair of Northern Division double-dual meet victories over rival Lincoln (95.559) and Ponaganset (114-31) at The Reservation on Monday. The Lions did claim a simplistic 11339 decision over the Chieftains to earn the split. Talbert recorded individual-event triumphs in the 110-meter high hurdles (16.6), 300 intermediate hurdles (47.0) and the 100 dash (11.8), though he had to share top honors with classmate Matt Feng in the latter. Talbert also joined Feng, sophomore Chase Craven and senior Dan Salazar on the triumphant 4 x 100 relay (46.7). Other CHS victors included Craven in the 200 (24.6); senior Alex Southiere in the 800 (2:06.5); classmate Kevin Seaver in the 1,500 (4:31.2); fellow senior Jordan Zerva in the pole vault (11-0); junior Jason Lambrou in the triple jump (40-5); and sophomore Will Mardo in the 3,000 (9:49.6). The 4 x 400 relay quartet of Southiere, David Agudelo, Brandon Frankina and Kylie Creamer snatched the top spot in 3:58.8. The Clippers improved to 5-0.

Fugere strikes gold for Novans
WOONSOCKET — Senior standout Connor Fugure won four events and set Dionne Park records in two of them to help lead Woonsocket to a sweep of its Northern Division competition on Monday afternoon. The Novans raised their dual-meet record to 6-0, their best start in a number
of seasons, by rolling past North Providence, 88-57, Burrillville, 111-33, and Johnston, 116-27. Fugere, who will attend Northeastern University this fall on a track and field scholarship, took top honors in the shot put (50-7.5), discus (135-2), hammer (197-4), and javelin (147-2), and his two facility records were in the shot and hammer. Piotr Linek also aided the Villa Novans’ cause with first places in the 110-meter high hurdles (16.4 seconds) and triple jump (36-11). Tim Crane also won the 300-meter intermediate hurdles (:46.7), and the 4x100 relay team also captured its race in 49.1 seconds. The Broncos, who also lost to N.P. (89-37) and Johnston (65-57) to fall to 05, received victories from Tom Libby in the 200 (:24.9) and 400 (:58.1).

Leclerc to snatch a 7-5 lead. Exactly one minute later, Leclerc roped one off the crossbar, but – 96 ticks later – officials whistled senior Andrew Mollohan for a one-minute unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, giving the Chargers its sixth “man-up” situation. The Lions killed that infraction off, then took an 8-5 advantage after Leclerc ripped a feed from Potter through Chariho junior goalie James Rooney with 6:46 remaining in regulation. Just 1:17 later, Hevner fired a low liner past Rooney to make it 9-5, though LHS junior Justin Palumbo sustained another penalty, this one for a crosscheck. Ethier’s bunch killed that off, too.
Still, just 10 seconds after the infraction had been served, Enos unleashed a BB at the cage, beating Rooney low before Potter’s final “man-down” (or shorthanded) tally resulted in the final score. Throughout the first three periods, the Lions held four leads. Each time, however, Chariho (0-2 league) came barreling back. Potter and Leclerc needed just 40 seconds into the initial session to pair up for the 1-0 lead, but senior Mitch Renner answered it on a feed from junior Tyler Bobbin 15 seconds after. Enos made it 2-1 at 2:36 of the first, though junior Nick Cleary (hat trick) notched his opening goal at 4:32. The two foes remained deadlocked
at 4-4 entering the third; still, LHS mustered two straight tallies in the initial six minutes, courtesy of goals from Potter and Leclerc, but Renner rifled home a pass from Cleary with a mere 30 seconds left to slice the Chargers’ deficit to one at 6-5. That’s when the Lions went on their fourth-quarter tear. All told, Lincoln had 23 tries on Rooney and converted 11, giving the keeper 12 saves. “I thought we played pretty well, especially in the second half,” Ethier stated. “We’ve had problems with penalties, just like we did (Monday), but our defense stepped it up. We have to cut down on those, but a win is a win. Overall, we did a great job.”

Stanley Cup playoffs
Blackhawks getting healthy; end of the line for Selanne
By LARRY LAGE AP Sports Writer Here's a look at 10 things to watch when the NHL playoffs begin Wednesday with a new format, some stars returning from injuries and renewed rivalries: NEW LOOK: Forget what you knew about how teams matched up in the playoffs. When the league went from having six divisions to four this season as part of its realignment, the plan for postseason was also altered. Two wild cards were added in each conference and at least half the first-round series were guaranteed to have teams face division opponents. IN THE EAST: The Atlantic Division-winning Jonathan Toews and defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Bruins will face the wild card Detroit Red Wings in the opening round. The team that advances will face the division's second place Tampa Bay Lightning or third place Montreal Canadiens. The Metropolitan Division-champion Pittsburgh Penguins will play the wild card Columbus Blue Jackets and the winner moves on to face the division's second or third-place teams, the New York Rangers or Philadelphia Flyers. OUT WEST: The Pacific Division-champion Anaheim Ducks are set to match up with the wild card Dallas Stars, the fifth team in from the Central, in the only interdivision series. The winner will play the Pacific's second place San Jose Sharks or Los Angeles Kings. The Central champion Colorado Avalanche face the wild card Minnesota Wild and the team that advances will match up with the division's second- or third-place teams, the St. Louis Blues or defending Stanley Cup-champion Chicago Blackhawks. ON THE MEND: The Blackhawks expect to have Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane in the lineup when they play at St. Louis on Thursday after each had long layoffs to heal injuries. Kane has been out since hurting his left knee March 19 — against the hard-hitting Blues. Tampa Bay might have to get to the second round to have goaltender Ben Bishop on the ice. Bishop has been out since last week with an upper-body injury and isn't going to be re-evaluated until early next week. "It's unfortunate, not just for our team, but for Ben," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. "He's had a great run with us this year." Tampa Bay has to hope Anders Lindback, who has played in one playoff game previously, makes the most of his opportunity to play in net. BUCKLE UP: One of the many intriguing matchups in the opening round has the 2012 Stanley Cup champion Kings against the Sharks for the third time in four postseasons. The Kings eliminated the Sharks in Game 7 of the second round last year after being eliminated by them in Game 6 of an opening-round series in 2011. Los Angeles and San Jose have played 22 times the last three years, including the playoffs, and each has won 11 of those games. "We figured we were going to see them at some point," Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle said. The Rangers and Flyers, whose arenas are about 100 miles apart, have met many times in the playoffs in the past, but not since 1997 when Philadelphia got past New York in five games and went on to lose in the Stanley Cup finals. PRESIDENTIAL PRIVILEGE: Boston had the best record in the regular season, giving the franchise its first Presidents' Trophy since 1990. The Bruins can be pardoned for not being too cocky about their chances because they lost three of four matchups this season against the Red Wings, who are in a 23rd straight postseason. "All of the pressure is going to be on them," Detroit goalie Jimmy Howard said. "They've got to win, we're not supposed to. We've got to make it as hard as possible on them." CROSBY'S CHANCE: Penguins superstar Sidney Crosby won the Art Ross Trophy for the first time since he really was a kid, scoring a league-high 120 points during the 2006-07 season as a 19-year-old, second year pro. Crosby crushed the competition in scoring, reaching the
100-point mark for the fifth time in his career to finish 17 points ahead of Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf. "There's so much more to his game than just scoring, but it is pretty amazing to see," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. WELCOME BACK: The Stars are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Columbus is still playing for just the second time in its 13season history and first since 2009. The Avalanche are playing among the league's best after three years of missing the postseason. The Lightning are back in the 16-team tournament for the first time since 2011. Dallas forward Tyler Seguin was in the postseason the previous three years in Boston, and he's got advice to share with teammates: "A big thing with the playoffs is, you've got to hate the other team." SELANNE'S SWAN SONG: Ducks star Teemu Selanne plans to retire after this season, ending a 21-season run that includes a Stanley Cup in 2006. The 43-year-old "Finnish Flash" averaged less than half a point per game for the first time in a decade. Selanne has become a supporting player on a talented team that should advance for the first time since 2009. WOE CANADA: The hockey-crazed country north of the U.S. border is represented by only one team — Montreal — in the playoffs. It has been 41 years since that was true and back then, the Scotty Bowman-led Canadiens won one of their NHL-record 23 championships.
Bruins understand what is needed to play deep
Continued from page C1
Then they traded Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars and received Reilly Smith and Loui Eriksson. They had upand-down seasons while Seguin tied for fifth in the NHL with 37 goals. "We went into that whole venture to improve our team and we have improved our team. So there's no real vindication," Chiarelli said. "And there's no secret to the quality of player that we traded. It was not a surprise that he's doing what he's doing." The Bruins are relatively healthy despite finishing Saturday's 4-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres without three forwards. Chris Kelly missed the game with back spasms, Bergeron left after the second period with a minor injury and Daniel Paille was helped off the ice midway through the third period after a collision with Jake McCabe left him dizzy. Bergeron is expected to play, and Julien said Sunday that Paille was "much better." The Bruins defense remained stingy despite the absence of Dennis Seidenberg since Dec. 27 and Adam McQuaid since Jan. 19. Chiarelli said Seidenberg, who had knee surgery, isn't expected to return for the postseason, while the team is being careful about McQuaid's recovery from a thigh injury. Without them, Dougie Hamilton, Torey Krug, Matt
Bartkowski and Kevin Miller, all 26 or younger, have played regularly. Zdeno Chara and Johnny Boychuk are the other two defensemen among Boston's top six. "One of our major themes going into the year was integrating the young defensemen, and I think (Julien has) done a good job," Chiarelli said. "We had the luxury a little bit of these players who played the year before in real tense times in the playoffs." Now they must try to stop a team that values puck possession rather than dumping it into the offensive zone and chasing it.
But the Bruins are deep with six players scoring more points than the Red Wings' leaders — Daniel Alfredsson and Niklas Kronwall with 49 — and five with at least 20 goals to one for Detroit. "The top two lines cancel each other out, so your third line becomes important. You saw that with the year we won," Chiarelli said. And the fourth line of Paille, Gregory Campbell and Shawn Thornton has been together for several seasons. "I've liked the look of that line," Chiarelli said. "It'll be key to our success."

Schools urged to discuss pitfalls of unions
"Do we really want to signal to society and high school students that making money is the reason to come play a sport in college, as opposed to getting an education, which will benefit you for a lifetime?" the NCAA memo reads. "That's not the message I want to send." The talking points were issued as the National Labor Relations Board weighs a decision by a regional NLRB official clearing the way for football players at Northwestern to form what would be the nation's first union for college athletes. The NCAA, Big Ten Conference and Northwestern all oppose the move, and the school has appealed. A player vote is planned on April 25 and the topic has dominated college athletics for weeks amid speculation that the effort, along with antitrust and other lawsuits against the NCAA, could change the very nature of amateur sports. The NCAA said the talking points were provided as a guide or starting point for school officials to share their own views. "As a membership organization, it is our responsibility to provide accurate and timely information on matters impacting college sports," spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said Monday in an email. "Our members requested facts and data on pay-for-play because there was so much misinformation in the media, based in part on public statements from those who are advancing the union movement and those who have brought suit against the NCAA." NCAA President Mark Emmert has been a longtime opponent of a pay-for-play proposal for college athletes, repeatedly pointing out the complexity it would create for Title IX compliance and whether a starting quarterback should be "paid" more than a backup kicker or a volleyball player. Just last week at the Final Four, Emmert expressed concern about unionization, too. This document, however, urges school leaders to join the debate by discussing other potential problems. "While advocates of professionalizing col-
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The NCAA contends that unionization by college athletes could lead to fewer scholarships and championships as well as a drop in academic support and career counseling. In a set of talking points issued to school leaders late last week, college sports' largest governing body urged school leaders have a unified voice on the topic that could dramatically alter college athletics. This document includes some traditional points of emphasis for the NCAA — that school leaders want athletes to focus on their classwork, the NCAA has liberalized rules to allow athletic departments to purchase items such as suits and members continue to work on legislation to provide money to cover the full cost-of-attendance. But the NCAA also warned that "scholarships would be cut or eliminated. The number of championship experiences would be dramatically reduced. Smaller sports would lose funding." It also said support services such as academic support, career counseling and tutoring could all be "cut significantly or eliminated."
lege sports make their arguments seem simple, they're not," according to the document. "The negative impact of turning these students into paid employees would be vast." Emmert has supported legislation that would provide money beyond the allowable limits for tuition, room and board, books and fees and a provision to give athletes access to as much food as other students on campus as well as unlimited snacks in and out of season. This document reiterates those points. "Our members believe in addressing some of the legitimate concerns that critics have raised, like providing the full cost of attendance - to help pay for that trip home or to grab a movie and dinner - particularly for those students with limited economic means," it said. But overall, the NCAA is opposed to unionization and is asking school leaders to speak with a unified voice. "Yes, we need to re-evaluate some of the current rules," the document said. "But completely throwing away a system that has helped literally millions of students over the past decade alone attend college is absolutely not the answer."
Olympic great Phelps ending retirement, eyes ‘16 Rio Games
Ledecky agreed that Phelps has nothing to lose by diving back in. "It's just for his own personal kind of thing," she said. "He's already done so much. Whether he adds a couple more gold medals or not, what he's done has been so incredible, whatever he does next should be accepted by all." Phelps had vowed that he wouldn't swim into his 30s. Since retiring less than two years ago, he has stayed busy with a chain of swim schools, a foundation focused on water safety and appearances on behalf of his sponsors. He devoted lots of time to golf and participated in a reality show with famed coach Hank Haney. Five-time Olympian Dara Torres knows about comebacks. At 41, she made the 2008 U.S. Olympic team in her second return to the sport and won three silver medals. At 33, she made the 2000 Olympics after seven years in retirement. Torres said she came back twice because she missed competing. "Knowing how competitive Michael is, I'm sure that's a big factor," Torres said. "When you're on top of your sport and all of a sudden you're not and you're out there in life, you miss what you used to do. When you retire, nothing is structured; with swimming, it's very structured." Phelps' camp is being low-key about the comeback, and he wasn't made available to speak Monday. "I think he's just really enjoying it," Bowman said. "He enjoys the training and being physically fit. He just kind of wants to see where he's at. It's more really for fun. It's been nice for me to see him swim just for the joy of it really." Olympian Jessica Hardy, who will compete in Mesa, said many swimmers were surprised by the news. "He kept it pretty much under wraps," she said. "Even if he's not at peak performance, it's great for the sport and each athlete particularly to keep learning from him. I don't think anyone wants to put pressure on him. He's accomplished everything you pretty much can. It's just great to see what else you can do." Phelps won't be coming back for the money, having earned tens of millions of dollars in endorsements during his career. However, his endorsement potential certainly goes up if he's in the water. His presence on the pool deck will give a boost to USA Swimming, which can endlessly market him. "Anytime you can have the most decorated Olympian in history in the pool, it's a fantastic thing for swimming," said Chuck Wielgus, executive director of USA Swimming. "USA Swimming and Michael share the goal of growing the sport, and his return to competition will surely inspire even more kids to give swimming a try."
By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer ichael Phelps is coming out of retirement, lured back into the pool by the fun of it and the possibility of swimming at a fifth Olympics in Rio in 2016. The 22-time Olympic medalist will compete for the first time since the 2012 London Games at a meet in Mesa, Ariz., on April 24-26. Bob Bowman, the swimmer's longtime coach, told The Associated Press on Monday that Phelps is entered in three events — the 50- and 100-meter freestyles and the 100 butterfly. "I think he's just going to test the waters a little bit and see how it goes," Bowman said by phone from Baltimore. "I wouldn't say it's a full-fledged comeback." Phelps returned to training last fall and re-entered the U.S. drug-testing program. He has completed his six-month waiting period by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency to be eligible for competition. Bowman said Phelps is "pretty far" from being back in top form. He's been training Monday through Friday with Bowman's team at the North Baltimore Michael Phelps Aquatic Club in his hometown. "He's gotten back into good shape since September," the coach said. "He can give a good effort and certainly not be embarrassed. He's in enough shape to swim competitively." Besides Phelps, USA Swimming said Olympians Ryan Lochte and Katie Ledecky are among those expected to swim in the Arena Grand Prix at Skyline Aquatic Center. "I'm excited to see what he can do," Ledecky told the AP by phone in between classes at her high school in Maryland. "Definitely, it'll bring some more energy to swimming again." Phelps turns 29 in June and is the winningest and most decorated athlete in Olympic history. He captured 18 gold medals and 22 medals overall at the last three Summer Games. He broke Mark Spitz's record for a single Olympics by winning eight gold medals at Beijing in 2008. If he comes back and doesn't dominate, Bowman said it wouldn't tarnish Phelps' reputation. "His legacy is sealed," the coach said.
Phelps' name recognition goes far beyond the pool deck. He's as well-known as athletes from far more prominent sports, such as NBA star LeBron James, which is an accomplishment for a swimmer whose sport gets most of its attention in an Olympic year. In Mesa, Phelps will swim 100 free and 100 fly preliminaries on the first day. Then, if he qualifies, he'll decide which race to swim for the evening finals, Bowman said. He'll swim the 50 free on the second day and might swim the 50 fly "just for fun," the coach added. "I bet you're going to see a little spark in him that you didn't see in 2012," Torres said.

Green jacket and golden moment for Bubba Watson
Watson didn't have to go extra holes and hit a wild hook out of the trees that "made me famous" as it did in 2012, just walking up the 18th fairway with a three-shot lead was no less exhausting. "The first one for me, it's almost like I lucked into it," he said. "This one was a lot of hard work, dedication, and I got back here." He understands now that the hard work is just starting. For a guy who says he has never been drunk, Watson knows all about hangovers. Majors can be a lifechanging moment, and it was more than he could handle two years ago when he first won the Masters. He signed more yellow pin flags than he cares to remember. There were obligations to his sponsors. And there was a new son at home. Along with the typical distractions of celebrity, Watson and his wife, Angie, adopted a boy just weeks before the 2012 Masters. "We got him a month old," he said of his son, Caleb. "So getting used to smell, touch, feel, sound, everything ... I had to be there for my son. Golf was the farthest thing from my mind. I took off some tournaments. Trying to be a good husband, a good dad, at that moment was the most important thing."
Lincoln registers first victory
LINCOLN — After scoring just five runs in its first three games of the year, Lincoln broke out offensively and produced an 8-2 win over Cranston East at Chet Nichols Field for its first Division I-North victory after three losses. Justin Conti pitched a four-hitter for the Lions (13), striking out eight along the way, and the Lions collected 10 hits to back him offensively. Jeff Sheehan went 3-for-3 to lead the Lions, who broke a 2-2 tie with a pair of runs in the bottom of the third inning, and Jake Petrin added two hits. ***

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — For all the crazy stunts Bubba Watson does for fun, the green jacket was off limits. When he won the Masters for the first time in 2012, he went to New York the next day for a media tour. He wore his green jacket walking the streets of Manhattan while going from one interview to the next one, and he was amazed by the attention it brought. No other piece of clothing in golf gets that kind of reaction. But that was the extent of it. Watson spoke about his year with the green jacket a week before returning to Augusta National to claim another one. "I left it in the closet," he said. "Right or wrong, out of respect for the tournament and what it means, I didn't take it out too much. Didn't let my friends see it. Didn't let them touch it. It's a coveted trophy. It's a big deal. And I know what kind of hard work it takes to get it." Watson was reminded of that hard work when he won the Masters on Sunday by three shots over 20year-old Jordan Spieth and Jonas Blixt of Sweden. Even in perfect weather — four days of sunshine, wind no more vexing than usual — only seven players broke par. And while

WOONSOCKET — Southpaw Kemi Idowu pitched 6 2/3 innings of seven-hit, one-walk ball and fanned a trio as Cranston West High mustered an 8-1 triumph over Woonsocket at Renaud Field on Monday. In the Division I-North clash, Gersham Rainone went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI and Matt Larado 2for-3 with two runs scored for the Falcons. For the hosts, who fell to 2-2, senior Victor Hunt closed at 2-for-3 with a double and a run, that on sophomore Kyle Beaulieu’s double in the final frame. Senior Jon Flynn also went 2-for-3 for the Villa Novans. Jaquan Guerrero took the loss. ***

The Clippers had held a scant 1-0 lead over the Division I-North foe Panthers through three innings, but they added two more in the fourth before erupting for four in the top of the seventh to nail it down. Both sophomore Josh Brodeur and senior John Sikie went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored, while junior Kyle McKenna closed at 2-for-3 with two RBI and a run. With CHS ahead, 1-0, in that fourth frame, McKenna plated both Opiekun and Sikie to deliver some insurance before the last-inning flurry.

Northmen hold Spartans at bay

we can ask for.” The Northmen struck quickly for a pair of runs in their opening at-bats, as a leadoff line single to center by Katie McMullin and an error on a grounder by Katherine West was soon followed by a run-scoring grounder by Angela Pasquariello and a sacrifice fly to left by Nicole
Turcotte. Turcotte, who hit the ball hard all afternoon, led off the fourth with a triple crushed deep into the gap in left-center field, and that was followed by three singles in a row by her teammates that helped give the Northmen a 5-0 lead. Julia Cloutier drove in Turcotte with a sharp ground single to left, and after Alli Depari beat out an infield hit,
Cloutier and Depari moved into scoring position on a double steal and soon came home when Emily Larson dropped a single into right. Not only did Carlton watch her no-hit bid sail away in the wind in the sixth, but she also lost her bid for her fourth shutout of the spring on a twoout line single to center by Nicole Venturini. That was the Spartans’ only batted ball to leave the infield. Carlton, who has 10 or more punchouts in each of her starts, also struck out the side in order in the first and final innings, and she received a couple of solid defensive plays from Cloutier at third base and one from Pasquarelli, her catcher, that saw her crash into the backstop to glove a pop foul. McMullin, Turcotte, Depari, and Larson each finished the day with multiple hits, and West and Turcotte also belted hard-hit doubles to deep center in the latter innings of the game. The Northmen’s next five games will be crossover contests against Division II-South teams. They are back in action tomorrow with a game in Wakefield against the Prout School and on Saturday at home against South Kingstown.

THE TIMES, Tuesday, April 15, 2014 early detection information and options, even poor and medically underserved women. “We are proud that the Avon Foundation for Women shares our mission and has chosen again to support our program. With these funds, we will continue to provide health outreach, education and services to underserved populations in our community,” said Deborah L. Perry, president/chief executive officer for YWCA Rhode Island. Since 2000, the Avon Foundation has awarded $76.2 million through more than 1,600 Avon Breast Health Outreach (BHOP) grants to communitybased organizations across the United States, including ENCOREplus at YWCA Rhode Island. These programs are dedicated to educating underserved women about breast cancer and linking them to early detection screening services. The Avon Foundation for Women and Breast Cancer Crusade The Avon Foundation for Women, an accredited 501(c)(3) public charity, was founded in 1955 to improve the lives of women and today is the world’s largest corporate-affiliated philanthropy focused on issues that matter most to women. The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which launched in 1992 and is led by the U.S.-based Avon Foundation for Women, has placed Avon and the Avon Foundation for Women at the forefront of the fight against breast cancer; today, Avon is the leading corporate supporter of the cause globally. Avon breast cancer programs in more than 50 countries have donated more than $815 million for research and advancing access to care, regardless of a person’s ability to pay. Avon awards funding to beneficiaries ranging from leading cancer centers to community-based grassroots breast health programs to support breast cancer research and access to care.
The Crusade has enabled more than 18 million women globally to receive free mammograms and breast cancer screenings, educated more than 145 million women about breast cancer, and funded promising research into the causes of breast cancer and ways to prevent the disease. The Avon Foundation raises funds for the Crusade through the sale of Avon “Pink Ribbon” products, and through events such as the U.S. Avon Walk for Breast Cancer series, which is the Avon Foundation’s largest fund-raising event. Visit for more information. For more information on ENCOREplus at YWCA Rhode Island, please call Joyce Dolbec at (401) 769-7450.

YWCA receives $65K Avon Breast Health Outreach grant
ENCOREplus at YWCA Rhode Island has reached more than 20,000 women with information about the importance of early detection of breast cancer and has referred almost 1,200 women for mammograms and clinical breast exams in 2013. Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in the United States, and the leading single cause of death overall in women between the ages of 40 and 55. According to the American Cancer Society, 870 new cases of breast cancer will be detected in Rhode Island this year and 130 lives will be lost. Nationwide, there is a new diagnosis every three minutes and a death from breast cancer every 13 minutes. While advances have been made in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, early detection still affords the best opportunity for successful treatment. Programs such as ENCOREplus help ensure that all women have access to
WOONSOCKET — The Avon Breast Health Outreach Program has awarded a $65,000 one-year grant to YWCA Rhode Island to increase awareness of the life-saving benefits of early detection of breast cancer. It is the 20th year that the program has received funding from the Avon Foundation for Women to support its work on this important health issue, and in recognition of the program’s excellence. The breast health program ENCOREplus at YWCA Rhode Island will educate Rhode Island women and refer them to low-cost or free mammograms and clinical breast exams in their own communities. The vital program will also enable YWCA Rhode Island to provide breast and cervical cancer community health outreach, education, assistance in accessing and navigating the treatment services and offer support during diagnosis and treatment. Since July 1995, the
PROVIDENCE — More than 30 patients and their families took to the airwaves to share their stories of medical struggles and triumphs in support of the 10th anniversary of the Hasbro Children’s Hospital Radiothon on Thursday, April 3. The community came together to donate $444,917 to support pediatric care, family programs and leading-edge research at the hospital. “My gratitude goes to all the individuals, families and businesses that, for the past 10 years, have made the Radiothon one of southeastern New England’s most successful community fundraisers,” said Timothy J. Babineau, M.D., president, Rhode Island Hospital/Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and president and chief executive officer, Lifespan. “Hasbro Children’s Hospital has helped raise a generation of healthy kids over the

past 20 years, and the ongoing support of our Radiothon donors has been crucial to keeping us at our best for all the kids and families who need us.” The annual Radiothon broadcast is a partnership of Providence Cumulus radio stations, Hasbro Children’s Hospital, and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The event was broadcast live from the hospital for a total of 15 hours. Since the Radiothon began in 2005, more than $6 million has been raised in support of the hospital. Over the course of the event, listeners heard inspiring stories of hope and healing from patient families and caregivers alike, about circumstances as varied as neurology, surgery, cancer, and palliative care. Listeners were also invited to visit the station websites and social media pages for live blogging, real-time photos, and the opportunity to “meet” some of the patients online. The event also included visits from Miss Rhode Island Jessica Marfeo, Stephen Gostkowski from the New England Patriots, PGA Tour professional Brad Faxon, players from the Providence Bruins and artists from PeaceLove Studios. The Cox Communications phone bank answered hundreds of phone calls from people wanting to donate in support of the event. Among the many sponsors, several of whom matched gifts during special “power hours” and also took shifts at the phone bank, were Hasbro Inc., Alex and Ani, Dunkin’ Donuts, the Rhode Island National Guard, Rhode Island Credit Union, Cardi’s Furniture Stores, East Commerce Solutions, Alexander’s Uniforms, Pepsico, Chelo’s, and David Schuller.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke Monday for the first time in more than two weeks, but appeared to make little progress in stemming the growing crisis in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian forces are deepening their insurgency. A senior U.S. official said Obama told Putin that while a diplomatic solution to the crisis remains his preferred outcome, Russia’s actions are not conducive to that approach. The Kremlin said Putin used the call to
reject Western claims that Russian agents have stoked protests in eastern Ukraine, and also urged Obama to discourage the Ukrainian government from using force against those protesters. The call was initiated at Russia’s request, according to the U.S. official, who insisted on anonymity in order to describe the call before details are formally released by the White House. The conversation occurred days before U.S., Russian, Ukrainian and European officials are due to hold talks on the unrest in Geneva. U.S. officials say there is compelling evidence that Russia is fomenting the unrest in eastern Ukraine, but have suggested Obama has not yet concluded that Putin’s actions warrant broader sanctions on key Russian economic sectors.
“We are actively evaluating what is happening in eastern Ukraine, what actions Russia has taken, what transgressions they’ve engaged in,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. “And we are working with our partners and assessing for ourselves what response we may choose.” Administration officials confirmed Monday that CIA chief John Brennan visited the Ukrainian capital of Kiev over the weekend, breaking with the administration’s typical practice of not disclosing the director’s travel. Ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych accused Brennan of being behind Ukraine’s decision to send troops into the east to try to quash an increasingly brazen proRussian insurgency. While U.S. officials denied those accusations, confirmation of
Brennan’s visit could provide fodder for Russian officials to create a pretext for further incursions into eastern Ukraine. Obama and Putin last spoke on March 28. Since then, pro-Russian forces have undertaken a rampage of storming and occupying local government offices, police stations and a small airport in eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian government has proved powerless to rein in the separatists, who are demanding more autonomy from the central government in Kiev and closer ties to Russia. The White House has blamed the unrest on Russia, saying there are undeniable similarities between the situation in eastern Ukraine and the Kremlin's maneuvers in Crimea, the Black Sea peninsula Russia annexed from Ukraine last month.

Police: Utah mother admitted killings of her six babies
PLEASANT GROVE, Utah (AP) — Megan Huntsman was clear about what she did with six of her newborn babies. Huntsman, 39, told police she either strangled or suffocated them immediately after they were born. She wrapped their bodies in a towel or a shirt, put them in plastic bags and then packed them inside boxes in the garage of her home south of Salt Lake City. What’s not clear is why. A day after her arrest on charges of killing her six babies, investigators and her neighbors puzzled over the grisly discovery, including how she could have concealed a halfdozen pregnancies over a 10year period. “How can you have a baby and not have evidence and other people know?” asked neighbor SanDee Wall. "You can’t plan when a baby is going to come. Just the thought of somebody putting a baby into a box is a heartbreaker.” Huntsman, who was arrested Sunday on six counts of murder, was ordered held on $6 million bail — $1 million for each baby. The remains of a seventh baby police found appears to have been stillborn, authorities said. According to a probable cause statement released by police Monday, Huntsman said she gave birth to at least seven babies between 1996 and 2006 at her former home in Pleasant Grove, a leafy, sleepy town about 35 miles south of Salt Lake City. All but one of the babies was born alive, she said. During the interview with police, she was unemotional and matter of fact, according to Pleasant Grove police Lt. Britt Smith. Her estranged husband, Darren West, made the discovery Saturday with fellow family members while cleaning out the garage of the house, which is owned by his parents. He called Huntsman, who admitted to him it was her baby, according to court documents. West called police, who then found the bodies in the garage. Investigators believe Huntsman is the mother of them all based on what she has told them, but have ordered DNA tests to make sure that’s the case. They don't know who the babies’ fathers are. It could take weeks to get the results, Utah County Attorney Jeff Buhman said. Huntsman's three daughters — one teenager and two young adults — also lived in the house. Investigators believe West and Huntsman were together when the babies were born, but don’t believe he was aware of the killings. Buhman said Huntsman is the principle suspect, but didn't rule out more arrests as the investigation continues. Police have talked with West as they investigate his level of knowledge and involvement in the deaths, Smith said. He was living in the house during the decade that authorities believe Huntsman had killed the babies, Smith said. He’s been cooperative, and was devastated by the discovery, he said. Smith said the three daughters have been interviewed, but he declined to discuss what they said.

Jewish community center and retirement complex near Kansas City. None of the three people killed turned out to be Jewish. The 73-year-old Cross, who shouted a Nazi slogan at television cameras when arrested minutes later, has been jailed awaiting charges that investigators said could come as early as Tuesday. At some point, a federal grand jury is expected to review the slayings, which authorities now deem a hate crime. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said the victims “happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time” and had “a firsthand encounter with evil.” The FBI and police have not offered any public explanation for what triggered Sunday’s deadly outburst in Overland Park on the eve of the Jewish festival of Passover. While the FBI and other lawenforcement agencies were familiar with Cross, Sunday’s gunfire was “very random,” the FBI’s Michael Kaste said. “We don't really see how this could have been prevented. There’s at least no obvious answer,” said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Alabama-based Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups and had a considerable dossier on Cross. “He is one of the more frightening characters out there, no question about that.” A Johnson County jail official reached Monday by The Associated Press refused to make Cross available and referred inquiries to his attorneys and Overland Park police. The Kansas City Star reported that Cross had been assigned two federal public defenders. Knocks by an Associated Press reporter went unanswered Monday at Cross’ small, single-story home, bordered on three sides with barbed-wire fences, near the southwest Missouri town of Aurora, some 180 miles south of Overland Park. Parked outside was a red Chevrolet bearing two Confederate flag stickers. In nearby Marionville, Mayor Dan Clevenger said Cross often distributed racist pamphlets. The Southern Poverty Law Center said Cross, who also went by the name Frazier Glenn Miller, has been immersed in white supremacy most of his life. During the early 1980s, Cross was “one of the more notorious white suprema-

Kansas shooting suspect lacked record of violence
Linked with KKK, served as a leader
Associated Press
OVERLAND PARK, Kan.— Never one to keep his hatred to himself, Frazier Glenn Cross for decades sought out any soapbox to espouse his white-supremacist beliefs, twice running for federal office with campaigns steeped in anti-Semitism. Yet there’s scant evidence the Army veteran and retired trucker with Ku Klux Klan links ever resorted to violence before Sunday, when authorities say he opened fire with a shotgun and pistol outside a
cists in the U.S.,” according to the Anti-Defamation League. He founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and served as its “grand dragon” before launching the supremacist White Patriot Party, the law center said. By 1987, he was the target of a nationwide manhunt for violating terms of his bond while appealing a North Carolina conviction for operating a paramilitary camp. Federal agents tracked him along with three other men to a rural Missouri mobile home stocked with hand grenades, automatic weapons and thousands of bullets. A federal grand jury indicted Cross on weapons charges and accused him of plotting robberies and the assassination of the law center’s founder, Morris Dees.
