Third rescue, no tax hike
Mayor gives preview of proposed budget
Local and wire reports
NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) — Members of the Northampton Fire Department hopped into action when they heard the Easter Bunny was trapped and needed help. Four members of the department rushed to a city home just after noon on Sunday when they got a call from a woman who said the bunny belonging to the little girl she was baby-sitting had escaped and hidden under the porch. The Republican of Springfield reports that after unsuccessfully trying to coax the rabbit out of hiding, and even stomping on the porch to try and scare it out, firefighter Jesse Rosnick crawled on his belly through the dirt in the small crawl space under the porch. He grabbed the rabbit and returned it to the little girl.
PAWTUCKET—Calling it more of his “building a bridge to progress” campaign theme, Mayor Donald Grebien has come up with a proposed $112.3 million city operating budget for fiscal year 2015 that provides additional rev-
enue in some key areas while promising a zero tax increase. The spending plan is about $1.6 million higher than the current fiscal year's budget of $110.7 million, reflecting an increase of 1.47 percent. The proposal involved no property tax increase for home or business owners and no increase in taxes for tangibles or motor vehi-
cles. The budget proposal will be introduced from the floor at Wednesday's City Council meeting and referred to the Finance Committee for review. A public hearing on the budget will be held at a date to be announced. Among the major initiatives of the budget plan is the addition of a
third rescue in the Pawtucket Fire Department. Director of Administration Tony Pires said the third rescue will be made possible primarily from the changeover to part-time civilian dispatchers in the Fire Department. This move is expected to cut down on overtime by an estimated $200,000 while freeing up two uniformed firefighters who handle the dispatch duties See BUDGET, Page A2

CENTRAL FALLS — Exemplifying how “it never hurts to ask,” TV star and movie actor Alec Baldwin has agreed to appear at a June 7 fundraiser in Providence to benefit the city's financially struggling public library. Officials at the Adams Memorial Library have announced that Baldwin will headline a fundraiser at the Fete performance venue in Providence. At an evening event billed as “Baldwin for Books,” the
award-winning actor and others will present dramatic interpretations of great literature. As part of the fun, any ticket holder can enter into a raffle for a chance to read a dialogue on stage with Baldwin. Drinks and food will also be available at the venue, which is located at 103 Dike St., on Providence's west side. Tickets are limited and are available for $45 online at m. Additionally, there will also be an exclusive VIP event, which Baldwin

will be part of, for donors who wish to be sponsors. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor is asked to contact the library's director, Joel Pettit by email at or by calling 401-727-7440. While having no personal connection to the Square Mile City or its library, Baldwin famously donated to the cause to keep the Adams Public Library open after reading about the city's bankruptcy and related financial woes in a New York Times article. He donated $10,000 to the library in 2011 and another $5,000 in 2012 and also proSee LIBRARY, Page A2
PROVIDENCE — The Providence home of ex-Rhode Island House Speaker Gordon Fox was put up for sale Monday, a month after federal authorities raided the residence and his Statehouse office as part of a criminal investigation. An online listing says the asking Fox price for the "stately" fivebedroom, 3½-bath Colonial is $615,000. The East Side home is about 2,600 square feet and was built in 1924. It has two fireplaces, a "gourmet" kitchen and recent updates, according to the listing. Executive Realty referred calls about the property to the listing agent, Jerry Sahagian, who didn't immediately return a message seeking comment. A message was left for one of Fox's attorneys. Fox resigned as speaker on March 22, a day after authorities were seen carrying boxes of materials out of his home and office in the Statehouse as part of a joint investigation by the FBI, IRS, state police and the U.S. attorney's office. Officials have declined to say whether the Democrat is a target, or what it is about. Neither Fox nor his lawyers have commented on the substance of the probe. Few clues have emerged since then. Law enforcement contacted the state Board of Elections about the ex-speaker on the day of the raids, the board's campaign finance director, Richard Thornton, has said. But Thornton declined to specify the nature of the contact. David Ortiz, a spokesman for Mayor Angel Taveras, also said federal law enforcement officials subpoenaed records See FOX, Page A2

BOSTON — Some ran to honor the dead and wounded. Others did it to prove something about their sport, the city or their country. And some were out to prove something to themselves. With the names of the victims scrawled on their bodies or their race bibs, more than 32,000 people crossed the starting line Monday at the Boston Marathon in a powerful show of defiance a year after the deadly bombing. "We're marathon runners. We know how to endure," said Dennis Murray, a 62-year-old health care administrator from Atlanta who finished just before the explosions last year and came back to run again. "When they try to take our freedom and our democracy, we come back stronger." The two pressure-cooker bombs that went off near the end of the 26.2-mile course last year killed three people and wounded more than 260 in a hellish spectacle of torn limbs, smoke and broken glass.

As announced at last week's School Committee meeting, the mayor's plan also would provide about a 2 percent increase or $600,000 in additional funding to the School Department, through an increase of $450,000 and the waiving of “charge backs” for city services such as snow plowing and trash removal (the proposed fiscal 2015 school budget is almost $107 million). Also among the highlights is the administration's desire to participate in the state's Income Tax Offset Program (ITOP) to increase its tax collection rate on motor vehicle tax payments. If approved by the City Council, the city would be able to collect on delinquent car taxes directly through the vehicle owner's income tax refund. It is anticipated that this means of collection could generate about $200,000 in additional revenue, which could then be placed in the city's reserves. Besides the ITOP program for the coming year, Pires cited increased tax collection efforts as being an anticipated revenue booster in the new budget as well as a $450,000 increase in rescue service fees that are projected to result from improved digital billing procedures and the addition of the third rescue. On the downside, he said the new budget reflects the approximately $700,000 reduction in state aid that resulted from cuts made last year to the money that was supposed to go to “distressed” communities such as Pawtucket. Among the other significant revenue changes was an over 10 percent decrease in the “tipping fees” that the city has to pay at the landfill for trash disposal since moving to privatization, which amounts to about $80,000. Another highlight was about that of the MIT police officer who was killed during the manhunt that paralyzed Boston. Later in the day Monday, at 2:49 p.m., the time the bombs went off, a moment of silence was observed at the finish line. It was followed by some of the loudest cheers of the day as people whooped, clapped and rang cowbells. "Boston Strong" — the unofficial slogan adopted after the terrorist attack — was everywhere as the second-largest field of runners in the 118-year history of the race took part. Many of them were runners who had to abandon the race last year because of the attack. "Today, when I got to that point, I said, 'I have to do some unfinished business,'" said runner Vicki Schmidt, 52, of Nashville. She added: "You can't hold us back. You can't get us down. Boston is magical. This is our place." While Gov. Deval Patrick said there had been no specific threats against the race or the city, police along the route examined backpacks, and runners had to use clear a $100,000 reduction in gasoline and oil consumption by city vehicles that is related to the installation of a new “digital control system” at the municipal gas pumps and Public Works garage. While the municipal workers' contract is still being negotiated, Pires said the budget includes a 1.5 percent salary increase. It also provides about a $150,000 increase to the Pawtucket Public Library, and allows for a transfer of $200,000 to reserves. Pires called the budget “still very conservative” but said it seeks to address plastic bags for their belongings. More than 100 cameras were installed along the course in Boston, officials said. Runner Scott Weisberg, 44, from Birmingham, Ala., said he had trouble sleeping the night before. "With everything that happened last year, I can't stop worrying about it happening again. I know the chances are slim to none, but I can't help having a nervous pit in my stomach," Weisberg said. Race organizers expanded the field from its recent cap of 27,000 to make room for more than 5,000 runners who were still on the course last year at the time of the explosions, for friends and relatives of the victims, and for those who were "profoundly impacted" by the attack. Kenya's Rita Jeptoo won the women's race in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds, defending the title she won last year. Keflizighi won the men's title in 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds.

many of the goals that Grebien set out to achieve in the five-year plan he created soon after taking office. Now that the city is out of its $12 million inherited debt, he said the mayor can start to think about making investments that will help better position Pawtucket for more aggressive economic development. The mayor's increased revenue for the schools and indicated support for the upcoming $32 million bond for school building renovations and $30 million road repairs are viewed as dividends that need to be paid for the city's future, he said. On Twitter, President Barack Obama congratulated Keflizighi and Shalane Flanagan, the top American finisher among the women, "for making American proud!" "All of today's runners showed the world the meaning of #BostonStrong," Obama wrote. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 20, is awaiting trial in the attack and could get the death penalty. Prosecutors said he and his older brother — ethnic Chechens who came to the U.S. from Russia more than a decade ago — carried out the attack in retaliation for U.S. wars in Muslim lands. Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died in a shootout with police days after the bombings. Associated Press Writers Rik Stevens, Philip Marcelo, Michelle R. Smith, Bob Salsberg, Denise Lavoie, Steve Peoples, Paige Sutherland, freelancer Ken Powtak and AP Sports Writers Howard Ulman and Pat Eaton-Robb contributed to this story.
now on a rotating shift basis. Pires said that besides being “a good business decision,” adding a third rescue will enhance the city's fire and rescue services and will likely mean a quicker response time. Pires said the budget also includes a provision to make the first-year payments on a $1.75 million allocation from the state's Municipal Road and Bridge Revolving Loan Fund to address nearly $30 million in much needed repairs to local roads.
from the city last week pertaining to Fox, but he would not say what authorities were looking for. He said the city is fully cooperating. Online city records show Fox purchased the home in 2003 for $500,000. It was assessed at $458,500 last year. Fox remains a member of the General Assembly but has not attended any legislative sessions since the raids and has said he will not seek re-election.
vided $2,500 to two of the city's chess teams last year. When asked how he got Baldwin to appear at the fundraiser, Petitt simply replied, “I just wrote him a letter and asked.” When prodded for further details, he said, “I can't remember what I wrote, verbatim, but I just told him how his generous donations had kept the library alive and had allowed for the hiring of several employees including me,” said Pettit. After being told of the June 7 event, which is aimed at promoting literacy, Pettit said, “He agreed to come.” The event is being hosted in partnership with the VSA Arts RI organization, which is acting as an agent to help with the fundraising. Pettit said.
The runners this time hit the streets under extraordinary security that included a battery of surveillance cameras, more than 90 bombsniffing dogs and officers posted on roofs. By late afternoon, as runners continued to drag themselves across the finish line more than six hours into the race, state emergency officials reported no security threats, other than some unattended bags. In what some saw as altogether fitting, Meb Keflezighi, a 38-year-old U.S. citizen who came to this country from Eritrea as a boy, became the first American in 31 years to win the men's race. As he was presented with the trophy and laurel wreath, "The Star-Spangled Banner" echoed over Boylston Street, where the explosions rang out a year ago. "I came as a refugee, and the United States gave me hope," said Keflezighi, who wrote the names of the three dead on his bib along with

World Poker tourney opens in New Jersey
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — After 11 years in Las Vegas, the championship event of the World Poker Tour is underway in Atlantic City. The weeklong event, sponsored by partypoker, is being held at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, its partner for online gambling in New Jersey. Borgata president Tom Ballance said moving the championship to Atlantic City shows the growing appeal of poker in New Jersey, particularly since the state began offering Internet gambling last November. "With online gaming and the popularity of the Borgata brand, the center of gravity of poker is moving to New Jersey," he said. Ten players qualified for the event through Internet play. Another 30 qualified online for events in the Borgata Spring Open, which began earlier this year. "The fact that after such a short time we have had people qualifying online says a great deal about the changing face of poker," Balance said. The amount of entrants to the WPT championship was not immediately available Monday.

Apple offering free recycling of used products
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple is offering free recycling of all its used products and vowing to power all of its stores, offices and data centers with renewable energy to reduce the pollution caused by its devices and online services. The iPhone and iPad maker is detailing its efforts to cultivate a greener Apple Inc. in an environmental section on the company's website that debuted Monday. The site highlights the ways that the Cupertino, Calif., company is increasing its reliance on alternative power sources and sending less electronic junk to landfills. Apple had already been distributing gift cards at some of its 420 worldwide stores in exchange for iPhones and iPods still in good enough condition to be resold. Now, all of the company's stores will recycle any Apple product at no charge. Gift cards won't be handed out for recycled products deemed to have little or no resale value. The offer covers a wide array of electronics that aren't supposed to be dumped in landfills because of the toxins in them. In the past seven years alone, Apple has sold more than 1 billion iPhones, iPods, iPads and Mac computers. The new initiative, timed to coincide with Tuesday's annual celebration of Earth Day, strives to position Apple as an environmental steward amid the technological whirlwind of gadgets and Internet services that have been drawing more electricity from power plants that primarily run on natural gas and coal. Technology products and services accounted for about 2 percent of worldwide emissions in 2012, roughly the same as the airline industry, according to statistics cited by environmental protection group Greenpeace in a report released earlier this month.

Dozens denied Navy base access due to past crimes
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Dozens of transportation workers have been denied access to Navy bases on the East Coast because of their criminal histories since more stringent rules were put in place following a fatal shooting aboard a destroyer in Virginia, according to figures provided by the Navy. A civilian truck driver with a criminal record shot and killed Petty Officer 2nd Class Mark Mayo aboard the USS Mahan in March after driving onto Naval Station Norfolk, walking onto a pier and onto the ship's quarterdeck. The Navy said Jeffrey Tyrone Savage disarmed a sailor guarding the ship and used her weapon to fire the fatal shots at Mayo, who jumped between the disarmed sailor and Savage. Savage was later shot and killed by Navy personnel in a shootout aboard the ship. The Navy said Savage possessed a valid Transportation Worker Identification Credential that could have gotten him access to the base, although he lacked proper paperwork indicating he had a legitimate reason to be there. The civilian gate guard who allowed Savage to drive onto base has been placed on administrative leave. The credential Savage had the night of the shooting is issued by the Transportation Security Administration to people such as truck drivers who need unescorted access to ports and military installations. Those who commit certain crimes are prohibited from having a TWIC card, but the crimes Savage committed didn't fall under any of them.

other means has proven to offer hope for human survival on Earth by cultivating moral, intelligent and ethical interactions among people and environments; and whereas those who wrote the constitution of the United States of America, the basic document for governing the affairs of humankind within the United States based it upon principles delineated within the philosophies distinguishing the historical Age of Reason…” Those on both sides of the debate say they do not see a conflict between the two and seem content to share the day, each in their own way. Steve Ahlquist, president of Humanists of Rhode Island, told The Times, “We wanted to have something that would involve everybody. It would be really hard for people to say: ‘Oh, we oppose reason.’ We want to come up with a value that everybody could get behind, not just prayer, which only religious people could get behind. A number of religious and nonreligious people don’t pray, so it wouldn’t be for them. We wanted
Chafee: May 1 a Day for both Prayer and Reason
Governor to issue joint proclamations
PROVIDENCE – Rhode Islanders who believe in God and those who don’t will both have their day on May 1. Gov. Lincoln Chafee is set to issue two proclamations on that day, one proclaiming a Day of Prayer and one proclaiming a Day of Reason. The Day of Reason proclamation was requested by the Humanists of Rhode Island and the Secular Coalition of Rhode Island. Chafee’s Day of Prayer proclamation starts out: “Whereas prayer provides peace and guidance in times of crisis and conflict; and whereas throughout the history of Rhode Island we have been strengthened, assured and lifted up through prayer…” The Day of Reason proclamation states: “Whereas the application of reason, more than any
“Secularism isn’t opposed to religion. Separation of church and state means we have a secular state in which everyone is free to practice their religion any way they want. That’s what Roger Williams wanted.”
— Stephen Ahlquist, president, Humanists of Rhode Island
something that was inclusive.” Ahlquist explained that May 1 is the National Day of Reason, which is why they asked the governor for a proclamation on that day. “In all honesty, if it were me, I would have picked a day that was different, so we asked for the state day on the day the rest of the country would be doing it.” Ahlquist said the two proclamations are not in opposition. “How do you see reason as being opposed to prayer?” he asked. People who are seeing this as an oppositional thing are missing the point.” He said it would be
“odd” for people to argue that reason is opposed to prayer. “Secularism and religion are not opposite poles, either,” Ahlquist contends. “The idea of secularism is that we live in a secular society where everybody is free to have their own ideas about religion. Secularism isn’t opposed to religion. Separation of church and state means we have a secular state in which everyone is free to practice their religion any way they want. That’s what Roger Williams wanted.” In a written statement, the Humanists of Rhode Island and Secular Coalition of Rhode Island said, “Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.” The Rev. Donald Anderson, executive minister of the R.I. State Council of Churches, also invoked Roger Williams in saying the parallel proclamations are “totally appropriate for Rhode Island. “One of the things Roger
Williams wanted when he came to this state was that not only could people worship as they please, but if people didn’t want to worship, they could be equal members of society with equal recognition,” Anderson said. So for the governor to issue that for there to be a place for folks who don’t share any particular belief for there to be some recognition and acknowledgement of them as just as valuable citizens as those of us who happen to be religious, I think it is a great idea. “Sometimes those of us who are people of faith, our skin is a little too thin,” he added. “If I want the right to stand up and boldly proclaim the Christian gospel, shouldn’t I also want someone who has an opposing view to stand up just as boldly proclaim what they want? Then others can listen to that and make up their own minds.” A spokeswoman for Bishop Thomas Tobin of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence said the bishop did not want to comment on the proclamations.

Pawtucket officers catch breaking and entering suspects
carrying several items which he later discarded. The victim identified these items, which included electronics and jewelry, as being his property and coming from his home. He also told police that he saw the suspect drop a pry bar. The homeowner said he then lost sight of the suspect. A short time later, Officer Michael Costigan saw a man matching a description of the suspect riding a purple-colored girl’s bicycle on Mendon Avenue near Riley Street and placed him under arrest. The suspect was identified as Steven D. Lapham, 53, of 145 Read St., North Attleboro. Lapham was held at the Pawtucket Police Department and brought before a bail commissioner on Saturday, where he was charged with breaking and entering. Bail was set at $10,000 with surety. Also on Friday, at around 7:45 p.m., a resident of Forest Avenue told police that he had observed two suspicious males walking into his neighbor’s rear yard. The resident knew his neighbors were not home and said he did not recognize these men. According to police, this neighbor, along with another resident living nearby, observed the two men break a window, and the two neighbors yelled at the suspects. The suspects then began to quickly walk away and the police were notified. Responding patrol officers were given a physical description of the suspects, and Officer Jess Venturini saw one of them nearby. This suspect reportedly began to run when he saw Venturini approaching, and he also allegedly discarded a metallic object which was later seized and identified as a screwdriver. After a short foot pursuit, Venturini apprehended the suspect, who was identified as Marco P. Jorge, 37, of 14 Magnolia St., Pawtucket. Jorge reportedly resisted arrest by Venturini but was placed into custody after a short struggle, with the assistance of Officer Alias Imondi. The second suspect was apprehended by Costigan. He was identified as Joshua Johnson, 28, of 39 Hancock St., Pawtucket. Johnson surrendered without incident, police said. Jorge and Johnson were both held at the Pawtucket Police Department and were brought before a bail commissioner on April 19. Jorge was charged with attempted breaking and entering, conspiracy, resisting arrest, and possession of burglary tools. Johnson was charged with attempted breaking and entering and conspiracy. Bail was set at $20,000 with sure-
PAWTUCKET — Thanks to observations from the public about suspicious behavior, a suspect in a Kenyon Street housebreak and two suspects who allegedly tried to break into a Forest Avenue residence were apprehended by Pawtucket Police in two separate incidents on Friday. At approximately 4:15 p.m., Pawtucket Police were contacted by a resident from Kenyon Avenue who stated that when he arrived home, he observed an unknown male leaving his residence. The homeowner followed this man and provided responding officers with a location of where the suspect was last seen. The homeowner also told police that he saw the suspect
ty for both men after arraignment. Pawtucket Police said that in July 2013, Marco Jorge was arrested and charged with 10 counts of breaking and entering and conspiracy, and four counts of possession of a stolen auto. Major Arthur Martins stated, “These two cases are another example of city residents observing suspicious behavior and communicating that information to us immediately. Without the public’s assistance, these arrests might not have taken place.” — Donna Kenny Kirwan
Lynch vehicular charges upheld by magistrate
to submit to a chemical test stemming from the accident in Pawtucket. He had asked for a motion to dismiss the case. In a ruling made on April 17, a review panel concluded that the magistrate's s decision to sustain the charge was not in violation of statutory provisions, not made upon unlawful procedure, not affected by error of laws or an abuse of discretion, and that the appellant’s substantial rights had not been prejudiced. As such, the appeal was denied and the charge violation sustained. Lynch is the son of Pawtucket attorney and former state Democratic Party Chairman William Lynch and the grandson of the city’s former mayor, Dennis M. Lynch. According to a spokeswoman for the attorney general’s office, Lynch has 10 days to appeal the matter to the District Court.
PAWTUCKET — The Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal last week upheld a decision by a magistrate sustaining the charges against Jarred Lynch in an Oct. 13, 2011, motor vehicle accident involving a Pawtucket Police sergeant that occurred in Pawtucket. Lynch’s attorney had appealed the ruling by Magistrate Domenic DiSandro III charging him with a laned roadways violation and refusal

My fight to end gendered happy meal toys
In the fall of 2008, when I was 11 years old, I wrote to the CEO of McDonald's and asked him to change the way his stores sold Happy Meals. I expressed my frustration that McDonald's always asked if my family preferred a "girl toy" or a "boy toy" when we ordered a Happy Meal at the drive-through. My letter asked if it would be legal for McDonald's "to ask at a job interview whether someone wanted a man's job or a woman's job?" A few weeks later, I received a short response from a McDonald's customer satisfaction representative claiming that McDonald's doesn't train their employees to ask whether Happy Meal customers want boys' or girls' toys, and my experiences were not the norm. This response was unsatisfying, so I began visiting more than a dozen local McDonald's locations with my father to collect data. Ultimately, we brought a complaint to the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities against McDonald's for discriminating on the basis of sex. Despite our evidence showing that, in our test, McDonald's employees described the toys in gendered terms more than 79 percent of the time, the commission dismissed our allegations as "absurd" and solely for the purposes of "titilation [sic] and sociological experimentation." All in all, this was a pretty humiliating defeat. But I still couldn't let it go. When the commission was considering our claims in 2008, one of the McDonald's stores accused us of "conveniently stop[ping the] experiment short to concoct this case." The store claimed that if I had just asked for a boy's toy they would have been happy to oblige. So this past summer, we decided to test this assertion. In a series of 30 visits, we sent boys and girls, ages 7-11, into 15 McDonald's stores to independently order a Happy Meal at the counter. We found that 92.9 percent of the time, the store, without asking, simply gave each child the toy that McDonald's had designated for that child's gender — a Justice fashion toy for girls and a Power Rangers toy for boys. What's worse was the trouble the children encountered when they immediately returned to the counter and asked to exchange their unopened toy: 42.8 percent of stores refused to exchange for an opposite-sex toy. In the most egregious instance, a McDonald's employee asked a girl, "Would you like the girl's toy?" The girl responded, "No, could I have the boy's toy?" When the girl opened the container a moment later, she learned that notwithstanding her explicit request, a McDonald's employee had given her the girl's toy. This girl went back to the counter with the unopened toy and requested, "May I have a boy's toy, please?" The same McDonald's employee replied, "There are only girl's toys." We then sent an adult male into the store who

immediately was given a boy's toy. Instead of filing another complaint, I tried a more conciliatory approach. I again wrote to the CEO of McDonald's, now Donald Thompson, sharing the results of our recent study and expressing my continued concern with the harmful effects of gender-classified toys. On Dec. 17, I received an amazing letter back from McDonald's chief diversity officer, Patricia Harris, saying, "It is McDonald's intention and goal that each customer who desires a Happy Meal toy be provided the toy of his or her choice, without any classification of the toy as a 'boy' or 'girl' toy and without any reference to the customer's gender. We have recently reexamined our internal guidelines, communications and practices and are making improvements to better ensure that our toys are distributed consistent with our policy." Even more heartening, just posted a photo of a manager's notice on the wall of an actual McDonald's store instructing employees: "When a customer orders a happy meal you must ask 'will that be a My Little Pony toy? Or a Skylanders toy?' We will no longer refer to them as 'boy or girl toys.' " While this notice does not ensure that all McDonald's locations will stop treating a kid differently because of his or her gender, it's a start. The problem with Happy Meal toys may seem trivial to some, but consider this: McDonald's is estimated to sell more than 1 billion Happy Meals each year. When it poses this question — "Do you want a boy's toy or a girl's toy?" — McDonald's pressures innumerable children to conform to gender stereotypes. Retailers don't need to use girl's and boy's categories when they can just describe the toys that are available and let kids choose the ones that appeal to them most. After all, that's been McDonald's stated corporate policy for the last five years. Antonia Ayres-Brown is a high-school junior in New Haven, Conn.
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio stays on offense
To say that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is unbowed after some difficult moments in his first few months in office is not entirely true. The 6-foot-5 progressive bows regularly so he won’t overwhelm interlocutors who don’t meet NBA specs. But de Blasio offers no apologies for waging war on economic inequality, for taking his time in making key appointments or for riling advocates of charter schools. He’ll concede errors of presentation, pointing out that he renewed a substantial majority of charter school arrangements E.J. Dionne even as his opponents grabbed national attention by casting him as an enemy to them all. His biggest mistake, he said, was in underestimating the “extraordinary level of opposition to change.” “If you’re fighting inequality, if you’re talking about income inequality and other structural inequalities in this society, a lot of people take exception to that,” he said in an interview last week in his City Hall office, whose centerpiece is the desk used by Fiorello La Guardia, the legendary New Deal-era mayor, “and we did not foresee some of it manifesting the way it did.” This is his way of saying that hedge-fund maestros and other wealthy New Yorkers who don’t like his populism used the charter schools fight to bring him down a peg. They launched a nearly $5 million ad campaign attacking de Blasio on the issue. This combined with some early missteps and needlessly rocky relations with the local media to bring the mayor’s approval rating to about 50 percent. But this is where the unbowed part comes in. De Blasio can legitimately brag about fulfilling many of his campaign promises in his first 100 days in office. He has reined in the stop-and-frisk policing program and the city’s crime rate has continued to drop. He pushed through a bill expanding paid sick leave to 500,000 workers. His most important victory was to secure five years of funding from the state legislature to provide pre-kindergarten to every 4year-old in the city. He didn’t get the small tax increase on the wealthy he sought — it was strongly opposed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo — and got less than he wanted for after-school programs. Still, citywide pre-K is a major initiative, and a successful plan could become a model for the country. A lot rides on de Blasio, the best-known of a wave of unabashedly progressive mayors who won election last year, including Betsy Hodges in Minneapolis, Marty Walsh in Boston and Eric Garcetti in Los Angeles. Local progressivism, an old American tradition, went out of style because the assumption in the 1960s and ’70s, as de Blasio said, was that “the federal government was a great agent of progressive social change” — and because it’s not easy. “Making social change in one local setting, or fighting inequality in one local setting,” he said, “is: one, hard; two, engenders lots of opposition; three, by definition is imperfect because so much of what should be happening should be happening on the state level and more profoundly at the federal level.” Yet with Washington “close to pure paralysis” and states still staggering from the economic crisis, “cities now must lead the way” and “take matters into our own hands.” De Blasio hasn’t forgotten that local politics is very local. “I’m very proud of the potholes we’ve filled at an unprecedented level,” he said. “Remember .?.?. I was a city councilman before I ever got here.” He’s mindful that small decisions can send messages, so he’s moving the July 4 fireworks from the Hudson River (where the show faced New Jersey) back to the East River where they’ll be visible to “lots and lots of people in Brooklyn and Queens, our two most populous boroughs.” It is, he said, “a simple act of fairness.” To underscore his awareness of how challenging it will be to make his pre-K program work, he walks over to get a photograph of the intricate preparations for the Normandy invasion. He uses it at meetings as a reminder of the imperative for “meticulous planning” and his desire to “do whatever the hell it takes over these next months to get this up and running.” De Blasio ascribes some of his early trials to a need to go with “a really rigorous no-huddle offense in the first hundred days.” Now, there will be more huddles. De Blasio is running plays that will affect politics far outside his city, and he knows the cost of fumbles. Read the transcript of E.J. Dionne’s interview with Bill de Blasio. Read more from E.J. Dionne’s archive, follow him on Twitter or subscribe to his updates on Facebook.
As others see it: Marijuana
The following editorial appears on Bloomberg View: Marijuana has now been legalized or decriminalized in 17 states and the District of Columbia, with Maryland joining the list just last week. Not to harsh anyone's mellow, but it may be an appropriate time (and day) to bring back another useful verb to associate with marijuana use: stigmatize. The drive toward legitimization will be hard to stop. Most Americans favor it, and ballot measures to loosen rules on marijuana use could come to a vote this year in at least five states. Twenty-one states already allow marijuana for medical use. What's unhealthy about this trend is that it coincides with a declining awareness of marijuana's dangers — especially among young people. Less than 40 percent of high school seniors think marijuana use poses a great risk, down from 55 percent in 2003. Cigarettes are dangerous, more and more adolescents have come to realize, but they don't believe marijuana is. (In fact, they're both unhealthy.) That they could be so wrong about a drug that more than a third have used makes it clear: In their drive to roll back laws against marijuana, and for the revenue that undoing prohibition would raise, states are inadvertently stoking a serious public health problem. Marijuana poses the greatest threat to the still-developing brains of teenagers. Steady use can bring lasting impairments in memory, intellectual functioning and emotion control. Marijuana use has been linked to depression, anxiety, even psychosis. Smoking pot once a week or more appears to actually change the size and shape of certain brain regions in young people.
Letter to the Editor Charity begins at home
On the matter of the Ukraine, how can Congress some up with a billion dollars to send to their aid? Congress can't take care of our own people. They cut money from our soldiers who fight for OUR country. They take away from our seniors who made this country. And the poor who keep taking from them. So how are they going to fund Ukraine? Are the poor and aged going to have to suffer even more? I don't see how this country can take care of all other countries when our own country is falling apart. Doesn't charity begin at home? Feed and care for us first, then play politics. Thumbs down for Congress again. Claire Peloquin Pawtucket, RI

NEWPORT (AP) — Family and friends have gathered in Newport for the funeral of Nuala Pell, wife of the late U.S. Sen. Claiborne Pell of Rhode Island. The private service was held on Monday at Trinity Episcopal Church. The Providence Journal reports that Nuala Pell’s son, Christopher T.H. “Toby” Pell, remembered his mother as “a gentle woman in the finest tradition” who loved reading, the beach, her garden and ocean sunsets. Relatives say her health had been failing when she died April 13 at 89. She was active in politics in her later years and was with her grandson, Clay Pell, when he announced in January he was running for governor.
Family, friends bid farewell to Nuala Pell
Among those who attended the funeral were Gov. Lincoln Chafee, Senate President Teresa Paiva Weed and members of the state's congressional delegation.
Suspect at large in armed robbery of Lincoln bank

Fisherman have been busy with their lines and lures since opening day but even with the good weather over the weekend there were still trout to catch at the state-stocked Barney’s Pond, off Smithfield Avenue in Lincoln, Monday afternoon. Above, Bob Leech of Attleboro shows off one of the trout he caught. Below, Tony Campanile of Warwick, a former resident of Central Falls, took his daughter, Rachel, 13, out for some late afternoon fishing on the same pond he fished with his great-grandfather, Wilfred R. Desmaris, years ago.
LINCOLN – Police are looking for a white male who was reported to have entered the 611 Smithfield Avenue Bank of America Branch at 3:50 p.m. Monday while wearing a dark sweatshirt and dark pants and robbed the bank just prior to its closing, according to police. The suspect was reported to have shown a weapon and demanded money while conducting the robbery, police said. He then fled the bank on foot with an undetermined amount of cash while head-
ing south on Smithfield Avenue. The robbery came in as a 911 call from the Bank of America branch and members of the Lincoln Police Department responded to the scene along with units from Pawtucket Police, Central Falls Police and the Rhode Island State Police. Witnesses reported that man was subsequently observed getting onto a blue motorcycle before driving off in the direction of Cobble Hill Road. No one reported hurt in the incident. Lincoln Police are continuing to investigate in the robbery with the assistance of the FBI, police said.

Memorial Hospital in Pawtucket; Women & Infants’ 90 Plain St. facility in Providence, and Kent Hospital in Warwick, while offering treatment for all but the most complex cardiac diagnoses locally. This expansion comes a year after a clinical affiliation with Brigham and Women’s Hospital established a comprehensive program at Kent Hospital and also integrated existing BWH services at Memorial Hospital. Since then, it has grown to include many additional services, including advanced cardiovascular imaging modalities such as cardiac CT, the advanced valvular heart disease service, and the advanced heart failure service with transplant consultation. These services are provided by board certified cardiologists and a team of Care New England nurses and clinical support staff. In addition to the array of advanced services, outpatient consultations and stress testing, cardiac catheterization and heart failure clinic nursing support are available. There is also access to cardiovascular clinical trials, a cardiac telemedicine program and

Botox manufacturer becomes target of takeover bid
Bloomberg News

Allergan Inc.’s best-selling product is Botox, an injection used for cosmetic procedures and migraines that sold $1.98 billion last year, 32 percent of the company’s sales.
Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc. (VRX) and Pershing Square Capital Management LP are teaming up to bid for Allergan Inc. (AGN) in a cash-and-stock offer for the $42.4 billion maker of the Botox wrinkle treatment, according to regulatory filings. Pershing Square, the fund run by Bill Ackman, and Valeant think that Allergan’s stock is undervalued and an attractive investment, the filing today shows. Pershing Square amassed 9.7 percent of Allergan after reaching an agreement with Montreal-based Valeant to jointly pursue a hostile takeover of the company, according to the regula-
tory filings. “We firmly believe that combining Valeant and Allergan would create an unrivaled platform for growth and value creation in health care, and we look forward to finalizing and announcing the terms of our proposal shortly,” Valeant said in an e-mail. Valeant has said its goal is to join the ranks of the world’s five biggest drugmakers, which would mean a market value of about $170 billion, just ahead of Merck & Co. and behind Pfizer Inc. Valeant’s market value at today’s close was $42 billion, meaning that a deal for Allergan would likely more than double its worth and put it roughly halfway to its goal. An offer would likely include about $15 billion in cash as well as Valeant stock to make up the differ-
ence with the final price, the company said in the filings. Barclays Plc and Royal Bank of Canada will provide financing, Valeant said. Pershing Square can terminate the agreement if there’s no offer made by May 2, according to the filings. Valeant’s board of directors is scheduled to meet this evening to approve the joint bid with Ackman, said a person familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private. Allergan’s best-selling product is Botox, an injection used for cosmetic procedures and migraines that sold $1.98 billion last year, 32 percent of the company’s sales. It also sells Restasis, a treatment for dry eye syndrome, which generated $940 million. Allergan’s shares gained 22 percent in extended trading to $172.90
at 6:24 p.m. New York time after closing at $142, its highest value since at least 1989, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. That would make it worth more than $50 billion. The Irvine, Californiabased company has increased 25 percent in the last 12 months, outpacing a 16 percent gain in the Standard & Poor’s 500 Pharmaceutical Index. Generic-drug companies have been buying up makers of specialty medicines as they seek to diversify their product lines and improve margins. Actavis Plc in February agreed to buy Forest Laboratories Inc. for $25 billion, expanding its branddrug business, and Mylan Inc. bought the injectable drugs unit of India’s Strides Arcolab Ltd for $1.6 billion.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-R.I.) on Monday announced that Rhode Island received $93,191 through the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to help schools purchase new kitchen equipment to more effectively and efficiently prepare school meals for students. “When our schools lack the right equipment to prepare good, healthy meals, schoolchildren lose,” said Cicilline. “Children deserve to eat nutritious meals that will help them grow and focus, and I am glad Rhode Island was awarded these federal funds to update kitchen equipment so our schools can serve healthier meals.” According to a study released by the Pew Charitable Trusts and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, nationwide, 88 percent of school districts need at least one piece of additional kitchen equipment to efficiently serve nutritious meals to their students. In Rhode Island, 91 percent of school districts need at least one piece of additional kitchen equipment to better serve nutritious meals to students. And, only 32 percent of school districts in Rhode Island have at least some budget for kitchen equipment upgrades. Cicilline has strongly supported efforts in Congress to expand and strengthen nutrition and healthy-eating programs. Earlier this year, he supported the Fiscal Year 2014 Omnibus Appropriations Bill, which provided for a total of $25 million in grants for local educational agencies and schools to purchase the equipment necessary to serve healthier meals. This legislation also included funding for domestic food programs, including the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, which administers the National School Lunch and Breakfast programs as well as the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). The USDA awarded a total of $25 million to states across the country.

Energy secretary: NE losing out on renewable power
Moniz criticizes infrastructure woes hurting region
Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn. — The nation’s top energy official delivered a blunt message Monday to a Connecticut audience of energy executives, regulators, environmentalists and others who already know that fuel heating and cooling homes and businesses and running power plants in New England is among the costliest in the nation. Ernest Moniz, U.S. secretary of energy, stopping in Providence and Hartford in a months-long federal
review of energy issues, said New England doesn’t share the good news developing in the field of energy with the rest of the country. “Out there, in much of the country the talk is about the energy revolution, the abundance of energy that we have, the way that we are in fact drawing upon new resources ... promoting renewables, at the same time reducing carbon emissions,” he said. “But yet if we come here, it’s not a discussion of abundance. It’s a discussion of, in particular, infrastructure constraints,” he said. Speaking to an audience of about 150 in Hartford, Moniz said that in New England, piping in natural gas and otherwise delivering heat or electricity is limited by a lack of delivery systems.
During the severe winter, natural gas prices soared to more than $120 per million British thermal units from about $5 in the summer. The spike was blamed on strong demand, a lack of pipeline systems, limited regional liquefied natural gas deliveries and inadequate storage. Energy prices in New England often are “very volatile and much higher than other parts of the country,” Moniz said. Moniz knows New England. A physicist and professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Moniz said even when fuel is available, it cannot be moved in emergencies, such as Superstorm Sandy in October and November 2012, because of power outages.
New England governors announced a plan in January to expand natural gas use. The governors of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont asked the region's grid operator for technical help to seek proposals to build transmission equipment and public works to deliver enough electricity to serve 1.2 million to 3.6 million homes. The states also asked the system operator, ISO-New England, to devise a way to finance the project. Gordon van Welie, ISO president, said Monday that because many non-gas-fired plants are to be retired beginning this year and public works improvements are scheduled to start years from now,
New England’s power system will be in a “precarious position” for a few years. Anthony Buxton, general counsel for the Industrial Energy Consumer Group, a trade association of industrial facilities, said he told Moniz in his visit to Providence that 2 billion cubic feet per day of more pipeline capacity into New England is needed to tame the region’s natural gas price spikes. Connecticut director William Dornbos of Environment Northeast, an advocacy group, urged Moniz and state policymakers to seek ways to cut demand via greater energy efficiency and to avoid major capital projects such as interstate natural gas pipelines or electric transmission lines.
Boston police officer fighting Bill demands ‘green cleaning’ in schools forced retirement over hearing loss
Detectice claims she still can perform her duties with help of hearing aids
The Police Department said it could not comment on pending litigation. City officials said they could not comment because they had not seen the complaint. Facey suffered hearing loss in 1999 when she practiced at the department’s firearms range without ear protection. Hearing aids helped her hear at normal levels, and she was able to stay on the force for years. She returned to work in March 2013 after an extended leave for an unrelated back injury. But department officials filed an “involuntary accidental retirement petition” with the city’s retirement board, stating that Facey had to retire not because of her back, but because of her hearing. A three-doctor panel hired by the state examined her and unanimously agreed that her impairment qualified her as too disabled to perform her duties. Facey countered that she was not tested while wearing her hearing aids. On March 18, the board informed Facey that it had voted to force her retirement. Her lawyer, Harold Lichten, said there is nothing forbidding Facey from wearing hearing aids on the job. PROVIDENCE (AP) — A bill introduced in the Rhode Island House calls for the use of environmentally friendlier cleaning products at schools to lessen any impact on student health and the environment. The Green Cleaning Act is sponsored by Rep. Jeremiah O’Grady. It directs the Department of Education to develop guidelines in consultation with the Department of Health for the use of “environmentally preferable” cleaning products. The Lincoln Democrat says the bill aims to make schools healthier for students and staff with asthma and other respiratory issues that can be triggered by industrial cleaners. Schools would deplete their current supplies before purchasing the new ones. The House Health, Education and Welfare Committee last week recommended the measure be held for further study.
BOSTON (AP) — A 19-year veteran of the Boston Police Department who says she was forced to retire because of a hearing impairment she suffered 14 years ago has filed a lawsuit seeking to get her job back. Detective Delores Facey said in her complaint she is able to do her job with the help of hearing aids. Her lawsuit, which was filed against the city and its municipal retirement board, alleges discrimination based on disability. On March 31, Facey’s supervisor ordered her to turn in her handgun and the federal credentials she used to work with the FBI in the Joint Terrorism Task Force, to which she had been assigned just five months earlier. She was then escorted out of the unit’s downtown office. “I just started crying,” Facey, a married mother of three, told The Boston Globe. “I was hurt. I was embarrassed.”
Gas prices rise 4 cents per gallon
PROVIDENCE (AP) — Gas prices in Rhode Island are up 4 cents from last week but are below the U.S. average. The latest weekly price report from AAA Southern New England, released Monday found the average cost of a gallon of regular self-serve in the state is $3.64. The local price is 4 cents more than a month ago. But it’s 3 cents less than the national per-gallon average of $3.67. Rhode Islanders were paying 12 cents less, or $3.52 a gallon on average, a year ago at this time. The AAA survey found an 18-cent range in prices, from a low of $3.59 to a high of $3.77.
Driver killed in Zakim Bridge crash
BOSTON (AP) — A 54year-old taxi driver was killed in a fiery crash with a tractor-trailer truck that shut down northbound lanes of Interstate 93 and caused a huge traffic tie-up in Boston during the Monday morning commute. The crash on the Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Memorial Bridge happened just after 5:30 a.m. Monday and sent flames and smoke into the sky. State police identified the person killed as Debra Sarno of Chelsea, a driver for Malden Taxi. State police said her car had stopped in the right travel lane before it was struck by the truck. Police said the truck driver, 47-year-old Joseph Maldonado of Manchester, Connecticut, had minor injuries. The truck is owned by M&M Produce of Hartford. All lanes on the highway were reopened Monday afternoon.

One year after a bombing there killed three people and left more than 260 injured, Meb Keflezighi added Boston to a resume that includes the New York City Marathon title in 2009 and a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics. Running just two weeks before his 39th birthday, he had the names of the 2013

NORTH SMITHFIELD – Almost everything he witnessed on Monday morning/afternoon, North Smithfield High skipper Jon Leddy liked – a lot. His starter, junior righty Ian Pascoe, allowed a mere four hits in his five-inning stint as the Northmen remained perfect on the Division II-North campaign with a 4-1 drubbing of always-pesky Tolman. The tilt took place before perhaps 70 fans basking in the springtime sunshine at the school’s diamond. Likewise, senior quad-captain Chris Forbes collected two hits and a pair of RBI, while sophomore Josh Labonte and senior Dylan Narodowy each finished 1-for3 with an RBI. Then there was Nick Cicerone (1-for-3), who whacked a double and scored, and junior leadoff hitter Brad Shatraw, who mustered a run himself. It was a superb, workman-like outing all around for Leddy’s crew – excepting a strange occurrence in the back half of the fifth inning.

Microulis masterful as SRA routs Mt. Hope
BRISTOL – Senior righty Hayley Microulis fashioned quite a Monday afternoon for herself. During St. Raphael Academy’s 12-0 “mercy-rule” drubbing of Mount Hope, she hurled a solid five-hitter (without a walk) and fanned a trio. In the process, she helped herself at the plate, going 3for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run scored. Other keys included freshman Haley Howarth (2-for-2, three runs); sophomore Kamryn LaBree (2-for-3, two RBI, run); and senior Kaylee Sylvestre (2-for-4, three runs).

The hosts notched one in the sixth, but McMullen buckled down to earn the win. “Rachel played very well at second base,” stated assistant coach Paul Mercier, whose club maintained perfection at 8-0. “It was her first varsity start as a freshman, and she made a lot of nice plays. She didn’t panic, but played like a veteran.”

CENTRAL FALLS – Burrillville High broke open a scoreless Division II-North clash against Central Falls in the third inning, courtesy of a whopping 10 runs, to roll to an easy 11-1 triumph at Macomber Stadium early Monday afternoon. Highlighting the flurry were senior Christian Fietz’s two-run double and sophomore Tyler Loynds’ two-run homer. The Warriors (1-4 league) actually helped the Broncos’ cause with five of their six errors in that frame alone. Junior southpaw Colin Murphy went the initial six and earned the win after allowing just six hits and a pair of walks while fanning a half dozen; with it, Burrillville improved to 3-5 in IINorth.

NORTH SMITHFIELD – In a battle of 4-2 clubs, St. Raphael Academy eked out a solid 3-2 marathon triumph over host North Smithfield High at Lovett Memorial Gymnasium on Monday night. Zach Mowry recorded a team-high 15 kills for the Northmen, though it was the Saints who eventually earned the difficult 23-25, 25-22, 27-25, 20-25, 15-9 crossover verdict to move to 5-2 in II-Central. N.S. fell to 4-3 in II-North.
BOSTON — A year after the Boston Marathon bombings, the Red Sox had plenty of chances to make a special day even more memorable. They almost succeeded. Boston scored one run in each of the last three innings — stranding runners in scoring position in all of them — in a 76 loss to the Baltimore Orioles in Monday’s traditional Patriots’ Day morning game Not bad, though, considering the Red Sox trailed 6-0 after three innings.
“Our guys battled and fought and did a good job of making a game of it and it came down to the last pitch,” David Ross said. “We did a good job of representing Red Sox baseball today. We just want to win, obviously, for the fans and the whole situation.’” Boston beat Tampa Bay 3-2 in last year’s Patriots’ Day game. About 40 minutes after the final out, two bombs went off near the marathon finish line a little over a mile from Fenway Park, killing three spectators. This year, Monday’s game began at 11:09 a.m., 12 hours, 28 minutes after Boston’s 6-5 win ended Sunday night.
Boston’s Mike Napoli called Monday “a special day.” “Of course, you want to go out there and win,” he said. That seemed unlikely when Baltimore scored six runs off Clay Buchholz in the third inning. The Red Sox, who overcame a 5-0 deficit Sunday, started to come back again. “It never seems to be enough against these guys,” said Baltimore first baseman Chris Davis, who fielded Mike Carp’s grounder and stepped on first for the last out. “They claw and battle and continue to score runs and put pressure on us to score more runs.” body. North Smithfield plays a tough defense, and it knows how to manufacture runs. They moved them up and brought them in.” Stated Leddy: “We’ve played some games that weren’t close, and we went into a couple against Burrillville and Shea where the kids’ heads weren’t in it. I told them that Theo always brings his team ready to play, that they would be more prepared than anyone we face. “The key here was coming out and being aggressive right away,” he continued. “We were down 1-0 in the top of the first, but we came right back with two. We didn’t let up. The kids weren’t content being ahead two, and we were able to ‘nickel and dime’ them. That was a huge two-run single by Forbes, and we manufactured a couple more for insurance.” “Ian settled down after the first; he was able to block that out. He’s able to do that after a bad inning. Like I said, I hope he’s able to come back much sooner than later. We need him on the mound.”
Tolman 100 000 0 --1–4–2 N. Smithfield 201 010 x --4–8–0 Vicente Noriega, Steve Otis (4) and Ricky Bourdeau. Ian Pascoe, Dylan Narodowy (6) and Mike Cicerone. 2B – Nick Cicerone.
Continued from page B1 Labonte had just plated senior quad-captain Conor DiSpirito with a bad-hop single past Tigers’ senior third baseman Adam Ghazal, and Pascoe stepped into the box to receive pitches from junior reliever Steve Otis. While trying to beat out a grounder to Ghazal, Pascoe – who earned the win on the hill – pulled up short of the bag clutching his upper leg. “I was watching my runner at third base, so I didn’t see what happened; when I looked toward first, I saw Ian grabbing his hammie, and that’s never a good thing,” Leddy stated afterward. “I mean, he‘s a tough kid, but I knew immediately something was wrong.” And then some. Assistant
coach Paul Lefebvre attended to Pascoe lying in the dirt near first, and – perhaps four minutes later – he helped lift his injured player to his feet and guided him back to the home third-base dugout. A few minutes after, Lefebvre aided another man in walking Pascoe to a parent’s vehicle for transport to a hospital/emergency room. “Ian is the kind of kid who just goes out and battles; he doesn’t let much get to him, unless it’s giving up a walk or a hit,” Leddy stated. “He’s harder on himself than he is on anybody else. If someone makes an error and guys are on, he can deal with it … He’s a big part of the team, and I hope he heals quickly.” With the victory, North Smithfield continued its torrid pace, improving to 6-0 in II-North action (7-0 overall).

Tolman fell to 3-4 in league play (5-5 overall), despite a rather solid outing from senior Vicente Noriega. The righthander yielded six hits, three runs (two earned) and three walks while whiffing a pair, but he took the loss. Still, it was the Tigers who struck first in the top of the initial frame, just as head coach Theo Murray had asked of his troops before the start. With two down, sophomore Ricky Bourdeau laced a single to center and took second following then-shortstop Narodowy’s bouncing toss to first. Noriega helped himself with a long RBI hit to right-center to plate Bourdeau, and senior Corey Hughes quickly singled down the left-field stripe to move Noriega to second. Junior Alex Lopez, though, popped to short to end the mini-rally. It didn’t take the Northmen to respond. With one out, Nick Cicerone scorched a double over center fielder Lopez’s head, then took third when Narodowy reached on an infield hit. The latter then robbed second, and – after Noriega caught DiSpirito looking – senior Chris Forbes plated both with a drilled single to center.
Undaunted, junior Nate Gagnon led the second with a stroked single up the middle, but Pascoe fanned senior Richie Marshall and junior Tyler Amaral before enticing Otis to ground to short. The Tigers threatened again in the third after Pascoe walked both Ghazal and Bourdeau, and both moved up after Pascoe delivered a one-out wild pitch. He nevertheless forced Noriega to fly to deep center, Hughes to pop out to second and Lopez to ground to third. As for the bottom half, Shatraw led off with an opposite-field single to left, reached second after Noriega’s pickoff try bounced past first baseman Gagnon, took third on Nick Cicerone’s groundout and hustled home on Narodowy’s sacrifice fly to right. That gave North Smithfield a 3-1 advantage. Leddy and Co., who failed to convert on a basesjammed, two-out scenario in the fourth, tacked on another run in the fifth with Otis on the mound. DiSpirito roped a ground hit to center, raced to second when Forbes reached on a shortstop bobble and scored when Labonte poked a hit to right. With Forbes and Labonte at third and second, respec-
tively, Otis managed to sandwich to groundouts around a strikeout of senior quad-captain and backstop Mike Cicerone. Prior to Pascoe’s sudden departure, he had retired nine of the last 10 he faced, and 12 of the previous 15. The lone hiccups: Three walks. After Gagnon’s leadoff hit in the second, neither he nor reliever Narodowy surrendered another. Narodowy hurled the final pair of frames, whiffing four with a flyout and groundout to himself to end the contest. “That’s been the story of our season – the inability of stringing hits together,” noted Murray upon being told his Tigers had stranded four of their six baserunners in scoring position and three with one out or less. “Our pitching and defense are solid; we’ve been having problems offensively. “But, hey, North Smithfield is a really good team,” he added. “I had told our guys before the game that we’d have to score six, seven runs if we wanted to have a chance. If you had told me before that we’d hold them to four, I would’ve taken it. The bats just let us down. “We hit some balls hard, but they were right at some-

Continued from page B1 of spring training and Jackie makes the Opening Day roster. He’s done a great job and run with it. I’m very happy for him and hopefully I can continue to motivate him. He has every tool to be an everyday majorleague player.” On Sizemore, Victorino waxed a little bit nostalgic. The two made their big-league debuts a year apart – Victorino in 2003 with San Diego and Sizemore in 2004 with Cleveland. “I remember looking up at him while I was coming up, saying ‘I want to be like Grady Sizemore in center field.’ To me, he was the best center fielder when he was healthy,” Victorino fondly shared. “To see what he’s doing after a two-year layoff, that’s what is fascinating and intriguing to me. You can see he’s still trying to get himself in baseball shape, but there’s definitely that sign of upside.” There’s definitely a major-league vibe to the PawSox these days with the presence of Victorino and third baseman Will Middlebrooks, who kicked off his rehab assignment Monday night. With two important parts of Boston’s lineup presently in town, Victorino declared that it’s far too early to push the panic button in reference to the ballclub’s sub-.500 start. “We definitely don’t want to be where we are, but it’s all part of the game. There’s a reason why we play 162 games for a reason and my big belief has always been that it’s not how you start, but how you finish,” Victorino expressed. Told that the Red Sox concluded the first month of the 2013 season with an 18-7 mark, Victorino said, “What you do in April dictates what happens in September. You look at our division. We’re 2.5 games out of first place and division games is where you want to do as best as you can and try to

DETROIT — The Detroit Red Wings have figured out what they need to do to beat the Boston Bruins. Detroit used its skill to win Game 1 against the Presidents’ Trophy-winning Bruins. Boston evened its firstround series against the eighth-seeded Red Wings by beating them up physically. The Red Wings want to flip the script in Game 3 on Tuesday night when the series shifts to Joe Louis Arena. Detroit defenseman Brendan Smith said emotions got the best of him when he stood skate to skate and face to chest with Boston’s 6-foot9 defenseman, Zdeno Chara, during Sunday’s game. Smith said the Red Wings have to avoid trying to get physical with the bigger, bruising Bruins. PLAY POOL OR FIGHT?: Detroit does not
want to play Boston’s game. Red Wings coach Mike Babcock explained why in quite a unique way on Monday, when he was asked what his message was to Smith about challenging Chara. “You walk into the bar and there’s this beautiful young gal standing next to this 6-foot-5 monster, who you know makes his living fighting for a living and you’re the best pool player in the bar,” Babcock said. “Are you going to play pool or are you going to fight?” ISN’T THAT SPECIAL: Boston evened the best-ofseven series because it took advantage of power plays, and didn’t let Detroit score with an extra skater. The Bruins scored on two of four power plays and held Detroit to 0 for 4 when it had a man advantage in Game 2. “We’re in the box for too many penalties and down the road that can hurt you,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said Monday before his team traveled to Detroit.

Don’t meddle in office affair unless it interferes with work
I manage a group of 15 employees. A few months ago, I hired the wife of an old friend. Until now she has been a great employee, but recently she and a male coworker have been taking lunches and breaks together in a way that leads me to believe they are flirting or have already crossed the line. Because we have a small group, I worry about how this will affect my team, who know that she’s married. I also feel bad for the husband, who is a very caring and kind man. As a manager, I don’t think I can say anything unless their liaison interferes with their work performance. But I hate to watch this progress and see people end up hurt. What can I do? — MANAGEMENT DECISION DEAR MANAGEMENT: Unless the flirtation becomes a distraction for “the team,” you should stay out of it. Much as you might like to intervene, your friend’s wife and this co-worker are adults and responsible for their own behavior. started happening to me, I fixed it by turning off the news and going “cold turkey.” After a four-day news blackout, I felt like my buoyant self again. Now I ration my exposure. Please share this with your girlfriend because it’s what I’m recommending for her. yourself can make removal more difficult. If the stain is permanent, then you should pay to replace the shirt. Ask yourself what’s more important — 180 bucks or your friendship?

To order “How to Write Letters for All Occasions,” send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby — Letter Booklet, P.O.

Jeanne Phillips happiness. She’s constantly worried about national and international politics, global warming, the economy, health care, crime, etc. She neglects herself and her family. She seems agitated, anxious and depressed by all the news. Is this a disease? How can I help her get off this habit? What should I do? — MISERABLE IN MINNESOTA DEAR MISERABLE: Your girlfriend appears to have become a news junkie. She’s overstimulated and hooked on the adrenaline rush she gets from channel surfing from one tragedy, outrage and horror to the next. While this may not technically be a disease, it IS exhausting and depressing. When the same thing
My girlfriend watches the 24-hour news channels and seems to be obsessed with them. It is hurting our relationship and affecting her
At a wedding, while shaking hands with a friend, I accidentally bumped another friend’s wine glass, staining his $180 shirt. The stain is a small one, on the lower portion and not very noticeable. Now the man insists I pay for the shirt. Is there an etiquette rule on this issue? I feel bad, but not bad enough that I think I should pay for such an expensive shirt. If you have the means to pay for a shirt that expensive, I don’t believe you should expect others to replace it. — CHRIS IN DENVER DEAR CHRIS: Good manners dictate that you offer to pay for having the shirt cleaned. A good dry cleaner may be able to remove the stain, but it should be done as soon as possible. Anytime a person has a stained garment, it should be taken to a professional and what caused the stain identified so it can be removed. Trying to treat it
Sudoku solution
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Many people are good at what they do but poor at describing what they do. Sooner or later, marketing is important in every line of work. You’ll be helpful to those marketing-challenged types. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The work you’ve chosen is very important, but it’s not as important as friends and family. As you keep everything in balance, you’ll set a standard for those around you, who will follow suit. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will come to a professional impasse. You will have the right of way in this matter, but consider yielding anyway. Being right will be far less rewarding than making things work for all involved. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Honest words are not always invited to the social party, and when they show up, they are often turned down at the door by security. If they do manage to slip in, they will be respected and feared. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It is natural to assume that others share your talents and are as capable as you are in the same areas. This is not true at all. Go in without assumption, and learn where people’s real strengths lie. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Your focus will be on those much younger than you. It will help you to keep in mind that everything is new and therefore magnified in the eyes of a child. Also, children get only one childhood. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). “Pride goes before the fall” is how the saying goes. But is it really so wrong to find satisfaction in one’s own achievements? They key is in knowing how far to take this. With your social instincts, you won’t go wrong. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Because you believe that everyone is great in some way, you would never value your own efforts while devaluing the efforts of another. You’ll have to search for the value that isn’t readily apparent. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). They’ll say you’re psychic, but the real reason for today’s accurate prediction is that you know the secret governing lies, vices and flaws: Some things are only as obvious as the effort made to hide them. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Ignorance is only acceptable when it is naive: No one is born knowing. The openhearted and curious-minded have an excellent sense of what they need to learn. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll truly feel the equality of all people, and you have an affinity for everyone. That’s why your choice will be a real dilemma. Someone has to stay, and someone has to go. Don’t vacillate. Choose fast. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Before you go out and purchase anything, assess what you already have. This will save you money and trouble, and it will keep you in touch with and accountable to your past.

KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden on Monday launched a high-profile visit to demonstrate the U.S. commitment to Ukraine and push for urgent implementation of an international agreement aimed at de-escalating tensions even as violence continues. The United States will decide within “days, not weeks” whether Russia is abiding by the accord, a U.S. diplomat said. “It’s still too early to tell if this is going to succeed,” said Geoffrey Pyatt, U.S. ambassador to Ukraine. “The ball is really in Moscow’s court in terms of whether they’re going to take this diplomatic off-ramp.” The United States has threatened additional sanctions against Russia if the agreement is not heeded. Biden planned to meet Tuesday with government leaders who took over after pro-Russia Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was ousted in February following months of protests. The White House said President Barack Obama and Biden agreed he should make the twoday visit to the capital city to send a high-level signal of support for reform efforts being pushed the new government. Biden will hold talks with Arseniy Yatsenyuk and Oleksandr Turchynov, the acting Ukrainian prime minister and president. He also is scheduled to meet with legislators from across the country and democracy activists before returning to Washington Tuesday night.
Biden visits Ukraine Market’s winning streak continues Halliburton, as tensions increase Hasbro, Netflix post strong
quarterly earnings
AP Markets Writer
NEW YORK — The stock market logged its longest winning streak in six months Monday as another big week for company earnings began. Halliburton, an oil and gas drilling company, rose after reporting a firstquarter profit on rising revenue in the Middle East and Asia. Toymaker Hasbro gained after saying it returned to profitability in its first quarter. A strong earnings report from Netflix pushed the company’s stock higher in after-hours trading. Close to a third of the companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 index are scheduled to report first-quarter earnings this week, giving investors a better picture about the outlook for demand after the economy’s winter slump. Stocks logged their best weekly gain since July last week as companies start-
ed reporting their earnings. “I like what I see in the market,” said Karyn Cavanaugh, a senior market strategist with ING U.S. Investment Management. “It’s all going to be about earnings, because earnings are the driver of the market in the long run.” The S&P 500 index rose 7.04 points, or 0.4 percent, to 1,871.89. The index has risen five straight days, its longest streak of gains since October. The Dow Jones industrial average climbed 40.71 points, or 0.3 percent, to 16,449.25. The Nasdaq composite gained 26.03 points, or 0.6 percent, to 4,121.55. Halliburton rose $2.02, or 3 percent, to $62.92 after the company turned a profit in the first quarter following a loss in the same period a year ago. Last year the company set aside money for litigation over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Hasbro rose $1.05, or 1.9 percent, to $55.66 after its earnings came in higher than investors were expecting, driven by sales of girls’ toys such as My Little Pony and Nerf Rebelle. Stocks also got a lift from an encouraging economic report. An index designed to predict future
economic growth rose in March for the third month in a row, an encouraging sign after harsh winter weather slowed down the U.S. economy. The Conference Board said Monday that its index of leading indicators increased 0.8 percent in March after a 0.5 percent rise in February and a modest 0.2 percent gain in January. “The data are suggesting that we will gain economic momentum,” said Quincy Krosby, a market strategist at Prudential Financial. “There is a sense, more and more, that the economy won’t run into another soft patch this year.” Reports of a potential merger also boosted the market. Newmont Mining jumped $1.42, or 6 percent, to $24.95 following reports that the mining company was considering a merger with Barrick Gold. The two companies are seeking to cut costs after a slump in metals prices. Allergan, which makes the anti-wrinkle treatment Botox, surged in afterhours trading on news that the activist investor William Ackman was teaming up with Valeant Pharmaceuticals to buy the company. Allergan’s stock jumped $28, or 20 percent, to $170.
