Interim superintendent named
DiCenso takes helm; Cylke to stay rest of year as consultant
Local and wire reports
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Huge messages left in the snow on the frozen Mississippi River are giving patients at St. Cloud Hospital a lift. At ground level, the patted-down snow doesn't look like much. But from the hospital windows above, the messages are quite clear. The latest are the words “love” and “believe,” along with a peace symbol. Each time there’s fresh snow, there’s a new message. Nurse Mary Habiger has seen a man and woman in snow shoes stamping out the messages. She says the mystery man and woman seem well organized and plan their messages in advance. Habiger tells WCCO-TV there are lots of family lounges in the hospital that face the river. So even if a patient’s room doesn’t overlook the river, they can view the messages from there.
PAWTUCKET—The changes keep coming in the school department: retiring Schools Supt. Deborah Cylke is now a consultant
to her job, while Secondary School Performance Officer Patti DiCenso was named interim superintendent at Tuesday’s School Committee meeting. The plan to name an interim superintendent was proposed by Cylke in a letter to School Committee Chairman Michael Araujo. She wrote Araujo that “in an effort to ensure continuity and consistency of academic initiatives and business and operational func-
tions of the Pawtucket School Department, especially if you are unsuccessful in finding a superintendent who can report by July 1, 2014, I feel it is in the best interest of the School Committee and School Department to appoint an interim superintendent.” She added, “I would then provide consulting services to that interim superintendent during this transition period through the remainder of my contract, that is, through June 30,
2014.” Cylke added that under this arrangement, she would no longer perform the duties of the superintendent effective Tuesday, but would continue to receive her salary and benefits pursuant to her contract for the period up to and including her stated retirement date of June 30. Cylke was not present at Tuesday’s meeting. Instead, she See SCHOOL, Page A2

EAST PROVIDENCE – City residents are being called on to help guide future improvements to the Jones Pond property, a neglected parcel along Fifth Street that is getting a $1 million makeover. The city is looking for input from the community via an online community questionnaire where respondents can prioritize more than a dozen proposed recreational and culture uses for the park identified at a workshop on Jan. 30. Those uses include everything from a trail and nature walk to an open air
Located next to Pierce Memorial Stadium, the 3-acre Jones Pond, which for years has been a basin for storm water runoff and used for skating during the winter, is slated to be transformed into a new open space, handicap accessible recreational facility.
amphitheater to an outdoor skating rink. Located next to Pierce Memorial Stadium, the 3acre Jones Pond, which for years has been a basin for storm water runoff and used for skating during the winter, is slated to be transformed into a new open space, handicap accessible recreational facility. The Tranquility Place at Jones Pond project will include a memorial overlook from the slope to the north of the pond, a hilltop trail in the same area, a trail and nature walk through the wooded area to the east, an amphitheater, access on the pond for canoes and paddle boats, and shade trees. The project’s first phase is being funded by two
$150,000 grants the city received last year from the Champlin Foundation and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management’s Acquisition and Development. The project’s second and third phases will include work on a main entrance way, a parking lot for upwards of 20 cars, and a music shell with lighting. The pond is a 3-acre rectangular concrete-lined pond that was constructed in 1938 as a as a retention basin to capture storm runoff from the Pierce Field recreation complex located to the immediate See PLAN, Page A2

That — Lloyd E. video, Mumford Sr. posted by an anonymous person on Facebook and later removed, has prompted the 47-year-old Woonsocket resident to speak out about the actions of three patrol officers that he believes were excessive. He maintains the officers used unnecessary force with a police baton and pepper spray while trying to take his 24-year-old son, Lloyd E. Mumford Jr., into custody. Police said the matter is still being investigated by their Internal Affairs Department. In response to media requests for the police arrest report, it was released by the city solicitor and shows those involved in Mumford’s arrest were patrol officers Jared Boudreault, and Joseph Skahan.

BOSTON — Mayor Martin Walsh on Tuesday called for all first responders in Boston to carry the heroin overdose reversal medication known as Narcan. All emergency medical technicians and paramedics from Boston EMS already carry the medication and have used it to reverse numerous overdoses. Walsh said he wants the Boston Public Health Commission to train Boston police and firefighters so that all first responders have access to the medication. The drug counteracts the effects of heroin and other opioids. It’s been used by ambulance crews and emergency rooms for decades. In recent years, public health officials around the country
have been distributing it to addicts, their loves ones, and some police and fire departments. State health officials said the Narcan nasal spray distribution program has stopped more than 2,000 overdoses in Massachusetts since 2007. Walsh made his proposal while announcing a series of community-based workshops that will offer overdose prevention training, information on how to access Narcan and the opportunity to meet with neighborhood substance abuse coalitions. The mayor’s office said unintentional drug overdoses increased by 39 percent in Boston between 2010 and 2012. As of last week, Boston EMS had administered Narcan 52 times since the beginning of See DRUGS, Page A2

master plan for the site that was developed in 2009 by Landscape architect Gates, Leighton & Associates. Alverson comes from a background of practical experience in the landscape service industry. In May 2002, he graduated magna cum laude from the University of Rhode Island. He holds a bachelor of landscape aArchitecture degree and is licensed to conduct landscape architecture in Rhode Island. He is also a certified coastal invasive manager through the Rhode Island Coastal Resources Management Council and the University of Rhode Island’s College of Environment and Life Sciences Outreach Center. Residents who would like to fill out the online community questionnaire can visit Follow Joseph Fitzgerald on Twitter @jofitz7. “Discussions are planned with them, but we’re pretty confident that it’s going to be implemented,” McCarthy said. “Our EMS people, they carry it and have for quite some time,” he said. “Right now, it’s being looked at as another tool that the mayor wants to add to all first responders.” BOSTON (AP) — Attorney General Martha Coakley is defending Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision not to fire the head of the state’s embattled Department of Children and Families, following the disappearance of a 5-year-old boy now feared dead. The Democratic candidate for governor said Tuesday that Patrick, also a Democrat, was right for first asking for an independent audit. Patrick, who is not seeking re-election, has backed DCF Commissioner Olga Roche and enlisted the Child Welfare League of America to conduct a review of the agency. “You need someone at the helm, and she has experience. And unless you have someone who’s ready to come in and turn this agency around, I’m not sure that’s the immediate solution,” Coakley said when asked if Roche should be removed. “I think the governor’s doing what he needs to do in terms of this audit.: The department has been under scrutiny since social workers lost track of the boy, Jeremiah Oliver. The child went missing in September, but police didn’t learn of his disappearance until December. Three department employees — a social worker, a supervisor and an area manager — were fired after an internal investigation found the social worker hadn’t made regular visits to Jeremiah's family in Fitchburg. Republican candidate for governor Charlie Baker called Monday for Roche’s resignation. “The commissioner should step down, and we should find someone who can go into that job and put fresh eyes on it and do the kind of top-to-bottom review, do the kind of basic work around protecting and keeping kids safe,” Baker said in an interview with The Associated Press. Patrick has continued to his head against the cruiser,” said Mumford. He also questioned the need for three officers to be involved, saying, “There's no way that it takes more than two cops to get you into a car when you're handcuffed.” In the soundless and grainy version of the video that is currently available for viewing online, two officers are seen struggling with a male suspect who they have up against a police cruiser. One officer can be seen striking the suspect with a police baton, and he is then joined by a third. The officers kneel on the man and one officer takes something from his belt that appears to be a spray canister and then places it back inside his belt. It is unclear from this version whether or not the suspect is handcuffed. According to online court records, Lloyd E. Mumford Jr. has been arrested over 21 times, and his father acknowledges he is no stranger to Pawtucket Police. “He definitely has an arrest record, and I’m sure they have had run-ins with him before. I’m sure that was part of it. But it’s a little alarming, especially when it's your child,” said Mumford. Of the video, Mumford said, “I know I definitely saw what I saw. The kid was on the ground.” He added, “I'm not saying he was innocent, but that was excessive force to arrest him like that, when he was already subdued.” He also said he believes the police officers’ version of the events as listed in the narrative are likely “fabricated a little.” Mumford said that he first saw the original video on Facebook after some people told him about it. He said his ex-wife, Regina Mumford, had called him to let him know what was going on and that there were positive trajectory” and cited the positive news of gains in reading and writing scores, an increased high school graduation rate, and the health and safety improvements that are taking place at school buildings. In what constituted a “farewell” address as superintendent, she also thanked the members of the School Committee, School Department and union leadback Roche, saying she was doing her job well under difficult circumstances. “The work of DCF involves the toughest children in the toughest circumstances,” Patrick said Monday. Coakley also said that the review of the agency should be done first. She said any time a high-profile mistake is made or a case garners attention, the urge is to say, “Let’s replace that person.” “No one does that. The private sector doesn’t do that. The public sector doesn’t do that,” she said. “Accountability’s important, but let’s do what makes sense to keep kids safe.” Coakley also responded to Baker’s call that she stop fighting a 2010 lawsuit filed by Children’s Rights, a New York-based child advocacy group that accused the state of violating the constitutional rights of thousands of children in the state’'s foster care system by placing them in unstable and sometimes dangerous situations. lawyers involved. “I just felt it wasn’t right,” he stated. In the officers' narrative, both Boudreau and Skahan describe locating Mumford in the parking lot and ordering him to stop. Both also wrote that once placed in handcuffs, Mumford headbutted Skahan in the face, knocking him backwards, and that he kicked Boudreault in the groin. The two officers described Mumford as kicking and swinging his head as they attempted to take him to the ground. Boudreault stated that both officers struck Mumford with closed fists in an effort to get him to cooperate. Boudreau wrote, “This did not work so I struck Mumford’s legs several times with my baton which had the desired effect and we were able to take him to the ground.” Once on the ground, Boudreault wrote that Mumford continued to struggle, preventing them from placing him in the cruiser. He said he then administered a short burst of pepper spray to his facial area “which had no effect.” according to both officers’ statements. Lefort and King then arrived on the scene and “with their help, we were able to search Mumford and place him in the rear of the cruiser,” wrote Boudreault. Skahan wrote that Mumford “was escorted, kicking and spitting” to the rear of the cruiser. Both officers also wrote that Mumford continued to yell, spit and kick the inside of the cruiser and at the station, kicked the rear right side door “so hard that the top of the door partially opened.” He was reportedly so combative at the station that he was “stripped to his underwear and secured in a cell.” Skahan wrote of finding the bags of a brown powdery substance (which turned out to be heroin), in a ers for their cooperation over the last four years. The lone dissenter to Cylke’s “transition plan” was School Committeeman Alan Tenreiro. He said he thought the best way to ensure continuity and consistency was to have Cylke remain in her role until she retired. However, the other five members of the council voted to approve her plan. (School Committeeman David Coughlin was not present for the vote.) The committee then next approved the proposal to name DiCenso as interim superintendent. While voting in the affirmative, School Committeewoman Nicole Nordquist commented that the committee had “no choice” but to appoint someone as interim superintendent, since Cylke had announced her intention to retire. “We cannot leave it vacant,” she said of the school’s top post. She said, however, that the School Committee will still conduct “an extensive and proper

Surrounding the pond are two moderately sloped grass fields to the north and west, and a relatively flat wooded area to the east. The Metacomet Office Park abuts the pond to the south. The site not only abuts the Pierce Field recreation complex — one of the most active recreational facilities in the city — but is also 500 feet from the East Bay Bike Path. Last year, a landscape architect was selected to oversee the first phase of the project. Wickford-based Kevin M.

Coakley backs Patrick’s handing of DCF
A federal judge ruled last fall in favor of the state, but Children's Rights is appealing. Baker said Coakley should advise the Patrick administration to settle the lawsuit and fix the problems. Coakley defended her handling of the case. "We represented the agency, which is our job, based upon facts which we believed was a fair representation. The judge dismissed that lawsuit and said on the law and the facts they did not have a case,” she said. Coakley also said she doesn’t believe there’s any conflict between her office's handling of that case and what she’s said as a candidate calling for changes at the family welfare agency. Coakley has proposed creating a child protection division within DCF to investigate allegations of child abuse and neglect with a sole focus on the safety of the children. pocket of Mumford’s jacket. It is also stated on the arrest report that Mumford was taken by police to the Memorial Hospital for a sprain/strain to the right knee and conjunctivitis. According to the Pawtucket Police policy on the use of force, it is stated that “a careful balancing of all human interests is required. Therefore, it is the policy of this department that police officers will use only force that is objectively reasonable to accomplish lawful objectives.” Under parameters regarding use the expandable baton, it is stated that the baton “can be used whenever an officer finds it necessary to use physical force to gain and maintain control of non-compliant subject where other means in the force continuum have been unsuccessful or unavailable or impractical due to circumstances.” It is also stated that “the target areas are the center mass of the arms, legs or abdomen unless it is a deadly force situation.” In the department's policy regarding the use of the oleoresin capscium aerosol spray (known as pepper spray), it is stated that “an officer may spray a handcuffed (or restrained) person with O/C only when the person is actively resisting, or the officer reasonably believes that other means of control are not available, practical, and/or would not be effective.” The policy also noted that in all cases where the baton is used, a Use of Force Report Form along with an incident report will be completed by the officers involved and forwarded to the Internal Affairs Division. Mumford was arraigned on Jan. 31 in Sixth District Court in Providence, with bail set at $10,000. He is due back to court on May 5 for a conference. search for a superintendent to lead this district.” She promised the committee would do its “due diligence” in finding a candidate to permanently fill the position, while adding that her comments did not in any way reflect on DiCenso’s capabilities. DiCenso, who was hired in 2011 to lead the transition team for improving the graduation rate at Tolman and Shea high schools, came to Pawtucket from the Newport School District, where she had been principal for five years of Rogers High School in that city. When asked if she was interested in the job permanently, DiCenso said it was premature to say, adding that she wanted to focus on the task at hand, “educating the children.” In her public comments following the vote, DiCenso thanked the School Committee for choosing her and said she would “continue to give you my heart and soul to move things forward.”

had been wanted by police on a domestic violence complaint that had been made by his mother. According to police, Regina Mumford, of 66 Spring St. had reported that her son and she had been involved in a domestic argument in which he had thrown items around their apartment and broke a window. She said he had also prevented him from using the telephone, but had left the premises. There had been a 24-hour warrant domestic violence warrant issued. Police later saw Mumford in a parking lot at the intersection of Broadway and Exchange Street, and after a struggle, took him into custody. Police say he continued to fight and threaten police during processing. They also said they found two small plastic bags of heroin in his jacket pocket. He was subsequently charged with possession of heroin (a felony) and misdemeanor charges of domestic vandalism, domestic — disorderly conduct, two counts of simple assault and battery on a police officer, and resisting arrest. The elder Lloyd E. Mumford alleges that in the Facebook video, police had his son propped up against the police cruiser and “got his face positioned to be pepper-sprayed.” He also said the video showed that his son was already in handcuffs when he was struck by the baton. “I was disgusted. I definitely think they used unnecessary force,” he stated. Mumford further alleges that the officers went out of their way to hurt his son, and left him with a “busted knee” that he did not receive medical treatment for right away. “You can see clearly in the video them slamming
Threatening note found at Attleboro school
ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — Attleboro school officials are investigating the discovery of what’s being described as a “hit list” written by an elementary school student. Superintendent Kenneth Sheehan said he’ll meet with school staff, police and other officials to investigate a note containing the names of students that was found at Hill-Roberts Elementary School. Sheehan tells The Sun Chronicle a substitute teacher got the note written by a disabled student a week ago and gave it to a school counselor. Sheehan, who had been on vacation, said he wasn’t told about it until Monday because the staffers didn’t think the child intended to act on it. Sheehan said he believes the students are safe, but he’s taking the note seriously. Police Chief Kyle Heagney said the student isn’t attending school temporarily until a risk assessment is completed.

excellence, dedication, and accomplishment in public service.” Chamber President John Gregory noted that when Grebien became mayor, he was faced with a $12 million city budget deficit and it was already halfway through the fiscal year. “Mayor Grebien, with the outstanding team he assembled, balanced that budget and every one since, with the current year’s budget having a zero tax increase for businesses and residents,” Gregory said. The mayor was credited with turning the long-neglected city trash transfer station into a revenue producer; introducing automated recycling while also saving taxpayer dollars. He also boosted the Fire and Police departments with new equipment and additional public safety personnel while containing costs and initiated a major citywide road repaving project, while bringing forward new proposals for commercial riverfront development. Grebien told the business group he was “humbled and honored” to receive the award, giving credit to the City Hall team he assembled since taking office. Looking ahead to the coming year, Pawtucket is working to transform the School Street Pier into Festival Pier, with more recreation attractions. The city is also looking to implement its new River Corridor Development Plan and construction of a $4 million medical center. The chamber bestowed the Ben G. Mondor Award, named for the legendary owner of the Pawtucket Red Sox and presented annually to honor a chamber member who demonstrates a steadfast commitment to philanthropy, to Thomas Ward, publisher of the Valley Breeze newspapers. Ward quipped that “When I think of philanthropy, I think of rich people.” More seriously, he said, “What we do is hold up a mirror to the community and show the community what nice people it is made of.” Follow Jim Baron on Twitter @Jim_Baron

RIF chairman urges business sector to lead
LINCOLN – Rhode Island needs two things to escape the economic doldrums that have left us drifting for nearly a decade, Rhode Island Foundation President Neil Steinberg told the Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce Tuesday: leadership and action. “In times of a tough economy,” Steinberg said, “the need goes up and the resources go down.” That puts philanthropy directly in the middle, he noted. Last year, Steinberg said, the Rhode Island Foundation gave out about $31 million in grants, making it the largest contributor to the nonprofit community. “I say that wishing we were the 10th largest, I say that wishing there were many, many other foundations, that there were many other supporters in the state that could give out grants. “We need to lead,” said Steinberg, the keynote speaker at the chamber’s 23rd annual dinner, held at Twin River casino. “This is not casting any political or any other aspersions. We just didn’t see enough action. We didn’t see enough urgency and we didn’t see enough outrage.” “We need leaders and we – private sector, public sector, nonprofit – need to be outraged about that. We need to attack that. We need to change that if we are going to go forward.” Pawtucket Mayor Donald Grebien was honored at the dinner as recipient of the Barbara C. Burlingame Distinguished Public Service Award, named for a former vice president of the chamber and a longtime state representative from Woonsocket. The award recognizes “a Rhode Island elected official who has made outstanding contributions to the business community, and who exhibits the highest standards of

Cicilline applauds House passage of debt measure
WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement Tuesday after the U.S. House of Representatives approved a clean debt-ceiling increase by a vote of 221-201 to avoid a default and suspend the debt limit through March 15, 2015. “I am pleased the House today passed legislation to avoid a default of our nation’s credit and protect the full faith and credit of the United States. America must pay its bills, and for too long Republicans have been playing games with the debt ceiling and putting America at risk,” said Cicilline, who noted that because Republicans did not act to approve normal borrowing authority when the statutory debt limit expired last Friday, the U.S. Treasury Department has been using “extraordinary measures” to continue paying the nation’s bills. “Waiting until the last minute to raise the debt ceiling is reckless and defaulting on U.S. obligations for the first time in our nation’s history would have caused tremendous damage to America’s credit rating, raised the interest rates which we pay as a nation, and increased the cost of business for families across our country. “And, Rhode Islanders would have felt the damaging effects of default in delays in Social Security payments, veteran's disability payments and pensions, increased mortgage rates, and more. “We saw the results of this failed approach in 2011 when Republicans manufactured a budget crisis and triggered the nation’s first-ever credit downgrade — resulting in real damage to our economy. “Providing certainty that America will pay its bills on time and in full will enhance our economic recovery. I urge my colleagues in the Senate to immediately take up and pass this legislation.”

Our high schools are a disaster
PHILADELPHIA — Every once in a while, education policy squeezes its way onto President Barack Obama's public agenda, as it did in during last month's State of the Union address. Lately, two issues have grabbed his (and just about everyone else's) attention: early-childhood education and access to college. But while these scholastic bookends are important, there is an awful lot of room for improvement between them. American high schools, in particular, are a disaster. In international assessments, our elementary school students generally score toward the top of the distribution, and our middle school students usually place somewhat above the average. But our high school students score well below the international average, and they fare especially badly in math and science compared with our country's chief economic rivals. What's holding back our teen-agers? One clue comes from a little-known 2003 study based on Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development data that compares the world's 15-year-olds on two measures of student engagement: participation and "belongingness." The measure of participation was based on how often students attended school, arrived on time, and showed up for class. The measure of belongingness was based on how much students felt they fit in to the student body, were liked by their schoolmates and felt that they had friends in school. We might think of the first measure as an index of academic engagement and the second as a measure of social engagement. On the measure of academic engagement, the U.S. scored only at the international average, and far lower than our chief economic rivals: China, Korea, Japan and Germany. In these countries, students show up for school and attend their classes more reliably than almost anywhere else in the world. But on the measure of social engagement, the United States topped China, Korea and Japan. In America, high school is for socializing. It's a convenient gathering place, where the really important activities are interrupted by all those annoying classes. For all but the very best American students — the ones in AP classes bound for the nation's most selective colleges and universities — high school is tedious and unchallenging. Studies that have tracked American adolescents' moods over the course of the day find that levels of boredom are highest during their time in school. One might be tempted to write these findings off as mere confirmation of the well-known fact that adolescents find everything boring. In fact, a huge proportion of the world's high school students say that school is boring. But American high schools are even more boring than schools in nearly every other country, according to OECD surveys. And surveys of exchange students who have studied in America, as well as surveys of American adolescents who have studied abroad, confirm this. More than half of American high school students who have studied in another country agree that our schools are easier. Objectively, they are probably correct: American high school students spend far less time on schoolwork than their counterparts in the rest of the world. Trends in achievement within the U.S. reveal just how bad our high schools are relative to our schools for younger students. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, administered by the U.S. Department of Education, routinely tests three age groups: 9-year-olds, 13year-olds, and 17-year-olds. Over the past 40 years, reading scores rose by 6 percent among 9-year-olds and 3 percent among 13-year-olds. Math scores rose by 11 percent among 9-year-olds and 7 percent among 13-year-olds. By contrast, high school students haven't made any progress at all. Reading and math scores have remained flat among 17year-olds, as have their scores on subject area tests in science, writing, geography and history. And by absolute, rather than relative, standards, American high school

students' achievement is scandalous. In other words, over the past 40 years, despite endless debates about curricula, testing, teacher training, teachers' salaries and performance standards, and despite billions of dollars invested in school reform, there has been no improvement — none — in the academic proficiency of American high school students. It's not just No Child Left Behind or Race to the Top that has failed our adolescents — it's every single thing we have tried. The list of unsuccessful experiments is long and dispiriting. Charter high schools don't perform any better than standard public high schools, at least with respect to student achievement. Once one accounts for differences in the family backgrounds of students who attend public and private high schools, there is no advantage to going to private school, either. Vouchers make no difference in student outcomes. No wonder school administrators and teachers from Atlanta to Chicago to my hometown of Philadelphia have been caught fudging data on student performance. It's the only education strategy that consistently gets results. We need to rethink high school in America. It is true that providing highquality preschool to all children is an important component of comprehensive education reform. But we can't just do this, cross our fingers, and hope for the best. Early intervention is an investment, not an inoculation. In recent years experts in early-child development have called for programs designed to strengthen children's "non-cognitive" skills, pointing to research that demonstrates that later scholastic success hinges not only on conventional academic abilities but on capacities like self-control. Research on the determinants of success in adolescence and beyond has come to a similar conclusion: If we want our teen-agers to thrive, we need to help them develop the non-cognitive traits it takes to complete a college degree — traits like determination, self-control and grit. This means classes that really challenge students to work hard — something that fewer than one in six high school students report experiencing, according to Diploma to Nowhere, a 2008 report published by Strong American Schools. Unfortunately, our high schools demand so little of students that these essential capacities aren't nurtured. As a consequence, many high school graduates, even those who have acquired the necessary academic skills to pursue college coursework, lack the wherewithal to persevere in college. Making college more affordable will not fix this problem, though we should do that too. The good news is that advances in neuroscience are revealing adolescence to be a second period of heightened brain plasticity, not unlike the first few years of life. And one of the most important contributors to their maturation is pushing individuals beyond their intellectual comfort zones. It's time for us to stop squandering this opportunity. Our kids will never rise to the challenge if the challenge doesn't come.

Burke and Paine, a rivalry that still reverberates
One of the most vivid, outspoken conservatives of our time has the drawback of being a fictional character in a British costume drama, “Downton Abbey.” Here is Lady Violet, dowager countess, sparring with her relentlessly progressive in-law, Isobel Crawley: Lady Violet: “You are quite wonderful, the way you see room for improvement wherever you look. I never knew such reforming zeal.” Isobel: “I take that as a compliment.” Lady Violet: “I must have said it wrong.” One of America’s leading young interpreters of British conservatism, Yuval Levin, has written a book detailing a more consequential historical version of the contest between preservation and radical Michael Gerson reform. In “The Great Debate: Edmund Burke, Thomas Paine, and the Birth of Right and Left,” Levin tells the story of an unfriendly rivalry between the progenitors of modern conservatism and modern liberalism. In the time Burke and Paine shared — the late 18th century — philosophical arguments could ignite revolutions, and pamphlets could be as important as battles. Both Burke and Paine were masters of political rhetoric at a time when political rhetoric really mattered, and their rivalry still reverberates. Levin praises Paine for his ability “to bring even modestly educated readers into contact with profound philosophical questions.” It happens to be Levin’s talent as a writer as well. Paine emerges as a restless, homeless agitator for liberty, convinced that governments should be torn down and rebuilt according to rational enlightenment principles. “Government by precedent,” argued Paine, is “one of the vilest systems that can be set up.” Burke, in contrast, proposed to “make the most of the existing materials of his country.” Demonstrating Burke’s own gift for epigram, Levin observes, “The best kind of political change, in Burke’s view, builds on what is best about the given world to improve what is worst about it.” Levin gives both great thinkers their due. But this cannot conceal the fact that Paine’s greatest political hope proved to be a horror, and Burke’s greatest fear turned out to be a prophecy. Burke argued that the triumph of Paine’s enlightenment ideology in the French Revolution would unmoor men and women from tradition, habit and moral restraint. A revolt in the name of liberty alone quickly turned against liberty itself, producing both the Terror and Bonaparte. Burke’s prediction was swiftly and completely vindicated. But the complex story Levin tells offers plenty of correctives for conservatives as well — including on the nature of conservatism itself. Burke would not have been comfortable among the Lady Violets of his day — the Tory conservatives of crown and altar. Instead, Burke was a Whig and a reformer who criticized the British war against America, pushed for Catholic rights, opposed the exercise of unjust colonial power in India, and was an early critic of slavery. He was also a social outsider, set off by his red hair, his Irish accent and his Catholic mother, sister and wife. Modern politics emerged as an argument between two sorts of Whigs, meaning two sorts of liberals — what Levin terms “progressive liberalism” and “conservative liberalism.” Both were distinctly modern movements. Both accepted liberalism’s commitments to liberty and reform. But they differed dramatically on how reform should be achieved. One was the party of radical liberation through revolution, which supported the French Revolution even after its violence emerged. The other was the party of gradual progress. In a typical illuminating flash of insight, Levin compares these divisions of ideology to branches of science. Paine’s approach is more similar to Newtonian physics — the application of rational, abstract laws and scientific methods to remake society. The past, in this view, is a dead hand. The individual must be liberated from superstitions and unchosen obligations. Burke’s politics are more like evolutionary theory — moving by gradual mutations and reflecting the inherited wisdom of the species. Human beings, in this view, live in a complex web of social relationships that preexist us and outlast us. And government should protect and strengthen these structures rather than rip them up according to abstract theories of liberty. Levin finds these conflicting visions — between politics as physics and politics as evolution — reflected in modern arguments between left and right. And the author, though a fair-minded historian, is not neutral in the great debate. He seeks the reconstitution of a communitarian conservatism that takes the need for reform seriously rather than offering pure opposition. That is a Burkean task — in which Levin is increasingly playing a Burkean role. Read more from Michael Gerson’s archive, follow him on Twitter or subscribe to his updates on Facebook.

As others see it: Credit card fraud
The following editorial appeared in Tuesday's Washington Post: If you worry about your privacy and carry a credit card, the Target data breach ought to be a startling wake-up call. A massive theft from card-swiping machines between Nov. 27 and Dec. 18 took information such as numbers and names from about 40 million customers and compromised personal information — names, addresses, e-mail addresses or phone numbers — from about 70 million. Although there may be overlap, perhaps one in four people in the United States were exposed to fraud and potential loss of privacy. The data were siphoned off by crooks and sent abroad. How did it happen? According to John Mulligan, Target's executive vice president and chief financial officer, who testified Feb. 4 before the Senate Judiciary Committee, intruders crept into Target's network and installed malware designed to skim off credit- and debit-card information. How they did that is not known, although cybersecurity sleuth Brian Krebs has reported that they may have gotten into the network through a vendor to Target; the vendor said it was a "victim of a sophisticated cyber attack operation." Chastened, Mr. Mulligan told the Senate panel that Target was accelerating a $100 million investment to convert to so-called chip-and-PIN technology that is more secure. He pledged that Target would have it in place early next year. Why isn't the United States as a whole moving more quickly toward chip-and-PIN technology?

Reached box office pinnacle, then proved she had a second act
AP National Writer
Shirley Temple, 85; child star turned diplomat
save 20th Century Fox from bankruptcy and praised by President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself for lifting America's spirits during a gloomy time. She was “just absolutely marvelous, greatest in the world,” director Allan Dwan told filmmakerauthor Peter Bogdanovich in his book “Who the Devil Made It: Conversations With Legendary Film Directors.” “With Shirley, you’d just tell her once and she’d remember the rest of her life,” said Dwan, who directed her in “Heidi” and “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm.” “Whatever it was she was supposed to do — she’d do it. ... And if one of the actors got stuck, she’d tell him what his line was — she knew it better than he did.” Her achievements did not end with movies. Retired from acting at 21, she went on to hold several diplomatic posts in Republican administrations, including ambassador to Czechoslovakia during the sudden collapse of communism in 1989. Former President George H.W. Bush, who appointed Black to the post in Prague, saluted her Tuesday for “her selfless service to our country” and her film career. “In both roles, she truly lifted people up and earned not only a place in our hearts, but also our enduring respect,” Bush said in a statement. Temple, known in private life as Shirley Temple Black, died at her home near San Francisco. The cause of death was not disclosed. From 1935 to 1938, she was the most popular screen actress in the country and was a bigger draw than Clark Gable, Joan Crawford or Gary Cooper. In 1999, the American Film Institute’s ranking of the greatest screen legends put Temple at No. 18 among the 25 actresses. “I have one piece of advice for those of you who want to receive the lifetime achievement award: Start early,” she quipped in 2006 as she was honored by the Screen Actors Guild. But she also said that evening that her greatest roles were as wife, mother and grandmother: “There’s nothing like real love. Nothing.” Her husband of more than 50 years, Charles Black, had died a few months earlier. In “Bright Eyes,” Temple introduced the song “On the Good Ship Lollipop” and did battle with a charmingly bratty Jane Withers, launching Withers as another major child star.
Any kid who ever tap-danced at a talent show or put on a curly wig and auditioned for “Annie” can only dream of being as beloved — or as important — as Shirley Temple. Temple, who died Monday night at 85, sang, danced, sobbed and grinned her way into the hearts of dispirited Depression-era moviegoers and remains the ultimate child star decades later. Other pre-teens, from Macaulay Culkin to Miley Cyrus, have been as famous in their time. But none of them helped shape their time the way she did. Dimpled, precocious and oh-soadorable, she was America’s top box office draw during Hollywood’s golden age, and her image was free of the scandals that have plagued Cyrus, Lindsay Lohan and so many other child stars — parental feuds, or drug and alcohol addiction. Temple remains such a symbol of innocence that kids still know the drink named for her: a sweet, nonalcoholic cocktail of ginger ale and

grenadine, topped with a maraschino cherry. Her hit movies — which included “Bright Eyes” (1934), “Curly Top” (1935), “Dimples” (1936), “Poor Little Rich Girl” (1936) and “Heidi” (1937) — featured sentimental themes and musical subplots, with stories of resilience and optimism that a struggling American public found appealing. She kept children singing “On the Good Ship Lollipop” for generations. She was also a tribute to the economic and inspirational power of movies, credited with helping to
Suspect faces drug charges following low-speed Lincoln chase
Police find cocaine after making stop
LINCOLN – A low-speed police chase out of Woonsocket ended with a North Scituate man being arrested on charges of possession of a controlled sub-
stance, reckless driving and resisting arrest, according to Police Capt. Philip Gould. Timothy D. Waters, 41, of Moswansicut Lake Drive, North Scituate, was taken into custody after Lincoln Police Lt. Kevin Marcoux joined the pursuit of Waters’ vehicle as it came out of Woonsocket on Manville Road at 6:40 p.m. on Saturday.
Marcoux got behind Waters’ vehicle while it operated at a slow rate of speed and followed it out on to Route 99 south, and then on the Route 116 south exit, where it continued to a Dunkin’ Donuts and proceeded to the back of the parking lot, according to Marcoux. Patrolman Clifford Landry arrived at scene and
assisted Marcoux in having the operator exit the stopped vehicle. Waters refused to leave the vehicle and held onto the steering wheel until he was taken to the ground by the officers, Marcoux said. After initially refusing to comply with the officers’ attempts to restrain him, Waters was cuffed and placed into a cruiser for transport to Police
Headquarters. A check of the subject’s vehicle turned up a syringe on the driver’s side floor containing a liquid, police said. The suspect later told police he had injected a liquid form of cocaine into his arm. He was subsequently transported by rescue to Landmark Medical Center to be checked out, police said. The liquid was tested and confirmed to be cocaine,
according to Marcoux. After returning to police headquarters, Waters was arraigned before a Justice of the Peace on the charges of possession of narcotics, resisting arrest and reckless driving. He was also found to be a bail violator and was ordered held at the Adult Correctional Institutions, Cranston, pending a court hearing, police said.

ijuana, O’Donnell said. Corrao was charged with possession of marijuana in excess of 5 kilograms, controlled substance conspiracy, and possession with intent to deliver Schedule I/II, according to Major Todd Catlow, detective commander. He was arraigned by Justice of the Peace John McCaffrey and ordered held without bail at the Adult Correctional Institutions, Cranston. Corrao appeared at a bail review at Third Division District Court on Monday and was held pending a bail hearing, according to Catlow. Warner was charged with conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substance Act and arraigned by McCaffrey, and initially ordered held without bail at the ACI. Warner appeared for a bail review at Third Division District Court on Monday and was released on $5,000 surety bail. Goyette was charged with possession with intent to deliver Schedule I and II, and conspiracy to violate the Controlled Substance Act. Goyette was arraigned by McCaffrey and ordered held without bail at the ACI. Goyette then appeared for a bail review at Third Division District Court on Monday and was released on $5,000 surety bail, Catlow said. O’Donnell said the arrests are the result of an investigation that began during the last week of January 2014, when members of the Connecticut Statewide Narcotics Task Force contacted members of the Rhode Island HIDTA Task Force in reference to a suspected illegal marijuana distribution network that was being operated within Rhode Island. The investigation identified a white male subject, referred to as “J”, who was alleged to be distributing multi-pound amounts of marijuana to other marijuana resellers within the Scituate, Foster, and neighboring Connecticut area. The information provided alleged that “J” had numerous marijuana growing facilities at unknown locations in Scituate, Foster and nearby Connecticut towns, O’Donnell said. The investigation also identified a second individual named “Ross”, who was alleged to be “J’s” partner in the marijuana distribution organization, O’Donnell said. Further investigation revealed that “J” and “Ross” allegedly delivered the marijuana to their customers personally, while also allegedly utilizing other individuals, or “runners,” to deliver the marijuana on occasion. HIDTA Task Force members developed information that identified “J” as Jeremy Corrao and identified “Ross” as Ross Vance, 29, of Woodstock, Conn. Vance has a lengthy criminal history in Connecticut and Massachusetts and is currently on “supervised release status” for possession of narcotics in Connecticut, according to O’Donnell. “This multi-state joint investigation revealed that Vance and Corrao operate a hydroponics growing business on Putnam Pike in the Town of Glocester,” O’Donnell said. In total, the search warrants resulted in the seizure of 248 marijuana plants, more than 46 pounds of processed marijuana and $312,678 in cash, O’Donnell said. “Some of these marijuana growing operations had medical marijuana patient cards taped to the walls inside the residences,” he said. “One of the Scituate houses, the North Smithfield house and the Coventry house had copies of the same eight patient cards taped to the wall inside the residence,” he
GLOCESTER – State Police have charged three Connecticut men in connection with the discovery of an alleged illegal marijuana distribution network in Northern Rhode Island, according to Col. Steven G. O’Donnell, Superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police. The arrests of Jeremy “J” M. Corrao, 32, of 613 Providence Pike, Danielson, Conn.; Timothy Warner, 32, of 6 Park Ave., Putnam, Conn.; and Christopher Goyette, 29, of 7 Vandale St., Putnam, Conn., on charges of illegal drug possession and delivery followed an investigation conducted by the High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) Task Force, O’Donnell said. The Task Force executed search warrants for properties in Scituate, North Smithfield, Glocester and Coventry on Friday and Monday as part of the investigation of the operation’s activities, according to O’Donnell. On Friday, O’Donnell said the HIDTA Task Force with the assistance of the Scituate Police Department and Glocester Police Department executed search warrants at the following locations: 17 Fairground Way, Scituate; 42 Tucker Hollow Road, Scituate; 14 Carue Drive, Scituate; 42 Lorraine Ave., North Smithfield; and 47 Pulaski Road, Glocester. The Rhode Island search warrants resulted in the seizure of approximately 228 marijuana plants, drug equipment and $19,678 in cash, O’Donnell said. As the warrants were being executed, O’Donnell said Task Force members arrested two “runners” outside 14 Carue Drive in Scituate with sixteen pounds of marijuana, O’Donnell said. On Monday, the HIDTA Task Force executed a search warrant at 68 Laurel Ave., Coventry. This search warrant resulted in the seizure of 20 additional marijuana plants, drug equipment and approximately 25 pounds of processed unpackaged mar-
added. A check of the eight patient cards with the R.I. Department of Health revealed that seven of the cards were active, with one expired card, according to O’Donnell. The Department of Health will only respond to law enforcement inquires that provide a medical marijuana caregiver card number, the colonel said. It will not provide law enforcement with any information concerning the name or address of the card holder, he said. The investigation of the marijuana distribution operation is continuing, O’Donnell said.
The HIDTA Task Force is managed by the Rhode Island State Police and comprised of members from municipal police departments in Providence, Pawtucket, Johnston, Smithfield, Central Falls and North Providence, U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF), U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and the R.I. National Guard. O’Donnell said the investigation owes its success to “the outstanding interagency cooperation amongst all its participants as well as the hard work and dedication of the task force members.”

You’re doing it wrong:
How to make better ramen
NEW YORK — This is not a column about cooking instant ramen. You obviously know how to cook instant ramen. The instructions are right there on the package. The finer points of instant ramen preparation may be up for debate, but the noodle cakes and flavor packets bequeathed to the world by Momofuku Ando are unmess-up-able. This is also not a column about trying to make "authentic" ramen, whatever that might mean for a dish with origins as complicated and multifarious as ramen has. No, this is a column about trying to replicate fancy ramen, for lack of a better term, at home. In the U.S., the last decade has seen a proliferation of restaurants that sell bowls of ramen for $12 to $15 a pop. What's crazy is that those bowls of ramen often make you feel that you got your money's worth. And the good news is that you can make a pretty good imitation of fancy ramen at home, in case your budget cannot withstand visits to fancy ramen joints, or you don't live within driving dis-
tance of a fancy ramen joint, or there's always a two-hour wait at the fancy ramen joint in your neighborhood. And as long as authenticity isn't your top priority, you don't have to sacrifice an entire day to make said ramen. The main thing to keep in mind when making noninstant ramen is that everything needs to be cooked separately and combined only at the very last minute. The noodles need to be boiled by themselves in salted water and then drained. (Fresh ramen noodles are great, if you can find them; otherwise, any long wheat noodle will do.) The vegetables (and meat, if you are a meat-eater) need to be thoroughly cooked on their own. The broth needs to be heated in its own pot immediately before serving. If you like eggs on your ramen, poach them (or boil them) in their own saucepan. What I mean to say is: Plan on using lots of pots and pans while making ramen. You will go through as many pieces of equipment as live-loop musician Elijah Aaron goes through while recording a song. My neighborhood ramen restaurant, the one with continual two-hour waits, makes
a killer vegetarian ramen with cabbage, butternut squash (which adds a pleasant touch of sweetness), and an insanely delicious miso broth. A minimalist miso broth — just miso and hot water — is nutty and nuanced but kind of thin tasting. A traditional miso broth, based on the fish- and seaweed-infused liquid known as dashi, is time-consuming and requires ingredients not easily obtained in your average American grocery store. But you can make a decent, savory, nottoo-salty miso broth by combining hot vegetable or chicken stock with boiling water and miso paste right before you assemble your miscellaneous ramen components. I'm not kidding about the "boiling" part. You have some leeway on the temperature of your vegetables and meat — it's not a big deal if they're lukewarm by the time you're putting everything together — but your broth must be piping hot when you serve the ramen, or else the whole exercise is for naught. And the noodles will soften slightly while they're sitting in the hot broth, so err on the side of undercooking them. Ramen
Ramen with squash and cabbage. The main thing to keep in mind when making real ramen is that everything needs to be cooked separately and combined only at the very last minute.
noodles should be al dente or even firmer — if you're going to cook them till they're mushy, you may as well eat the instant kind instead. Miso Ramen With Roasted Squash and Cabbage Yield: 4 servings Time: About 1 hour, partially unattended 1 small butternut squash (1 1/2 to 2 pounds), peeled, seeded, and cut into 3/4-inch chunks 1 tablespoon sesame oil Salt and black pepper 1/4 large Savoy cabbage
head (about 6 ounces), cut into 1-inch pieces 10 ounces ramen noodles 2 cups vegetable or chicken stock 1/4 cup white miso 4 scallions, thinly sliced Steps 1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Toss the squash with the sesame oil on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Roast the squash for 10 minutes. Add the cabbage to the baking sheet, stir, and continue to roast, stirring occasionally, until both the squash and the cabbage are tender and lightly browned, about 30
minutes. 2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt it. Add the ramen and cook until al dente, usually 3 to 4 minutes, depending on the package instructions; drain thoroughly. 3. Combine the stock and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan over high heat. When it comes to a boil, remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the miso until it dissolves. Divide the ramen, squash and cabbage, and scallions among four serving bowls. Pour 1 cup of the miso broth into each bowl, and serve immediately.
QUICK AND ZESTY: Spicy Mustard Steak in Pastry Shell
The Washington Post
Spicy Mustard Steak in Pastry Shells 4 servings This one is simple to bring together yet fancy enough to surprise your family on a weeknight or serve to unexpected guests. If you use pastry shells bought from a bakery or a baker/vendor at a farmers market, this recipe will take you 20 minutes. Based on a steak recipe in "The $50 Dinner Party: 26 Dinner Parties That Won't Break Your Bank, Your Back or Your Schedule," by Sally Sampson (Fireside, 1998). Ingredients 4 bakery-fresh or storebought, defrosted puff pastry shells (vol-au-vent) 1/4 cup Dijon-style mustard 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon chipotle powder 1 teaspoon light brown sugar 1/2 lime 1 1/2 pounds top round sirloin steak (1/2- to 3/4inch thick) 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for the greens 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for the greens 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus
in the juice from the lime half. Cut the steak on the diagonal into 2-inch pieces, trimming off excess fat as you go; the pieces should be shaped almost like arrowheads. Drop them into the mustard mixture and toss to coat evenly. Heat the 2 teaspoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil shimmers, add half of the steak. Season with half of the salt and pepper. Cook for 2 or 3
minutes, until the steak pieces are seared in spots, then turn them over and cook for 1 or 2 minutes (medium-rare); be careful not to overcook the meat, or it will be tough. Transfer to a plate. Add the remaining steak pieces to the skillet and repeat the cooking and seasoning. Reduce the heat to medium-low; return the first batch of steak to the skillet just to warm through. Lightly toss the salad greens in a mixing bowl
with a drizzle of oil and a small pinch of salt and pepper. Place a pastry shell on each plate. Divide the salad among the shells, then spoon equal amounts of the steak on top of each portion. Serve right away. Nutrition Per serving: 430 calories, 41 g protein, 22 g carbohydrates, 19 g fat, 9 g saturated fat, 60 mg cholesterol, 570 mg sodium, 2 g dietary fiber, 2 g sugar.

CVS Caremark ledger ends ‘13 with a flourish
Profits climb 12-plus percent
AP Business Writer
CVS Caremark shares outpaced the broader market Tuesday after the drugstore chain raised its earnings forecast for the start of 2014 and reassured investors that its business can absorb the
financial hit coming from a decision to stop selling tobacco products. The Woonsocket company also reported fourth-quarter earnings that climbed more than 12 percent and edged past Wall Street expectations. CVS Caremark Corp. gained national attention last week after it promised to phase out sales of tobacco products from its more than
Every Saturday! Every Edition!
7,600 drugstores nationwide. The company, like other drugstore chains, has been adding in-store clinics and seeking to work more with health care providers to manage patient care. CEO Larry Merlo said then that tobacco has no place in a health care setting like that. CVS Caremark also said it expected the move to help expand that business with other care providers, but it didn’t forecast what sort of gain it will reap. It did, however, say that pulling tobacco products will lead to a $2 billion loss in annual revenue and an earnings hit that will equate to between 6 cents and 9 cents per share this year. The company also said its business was strong enough
that it can absorb that hit and not change its full-year forecast. On Tuesday, it backed up that sentiment by raising its forecast for first-quarter earnings to $1.03 to $1.06 per share from 96 cents to 99 cents. That topped average analyst expectations of 98 cents per share, according to FactSet. Better generic drug pricing contributed to the forecast hike, and the performance of CVS Caremark’s pharmacy business made it clear that the company will be able cope with tobacco withdrawal, according to Jeff Jonas, a portfolio manager for Gabelli Funds. What remains unclear, though, is how the company’s health care business
will grow in the long term because it plans to kick tobacco sales. “They have this huge (public relations) halo now, but that’s going to fade,” Jonas said. “It’s just really hard to translate that good will and reputation into actual business.” Morningstar analyst Vishnu Lekraj, who also covers drugstores, has said that doctors and hospitals will be concerned most with who gives them the best deal when they look for a pharmacy partner. CVS executives told analysts Tuesday that they think the tobacco move will help bring in business, as long as they offer reasonable prices and also serve their clients properly. They noted that
accountable care organizations, which coordinate care among doctors, specialists and hospitals, focus on the role tobacco plays in exacerbating chronic conditions like high blood pressure and try to help patients quit. Aside from offering tobacco-free stores, CVS Caremark also provides smoking cessation help through its in-store clinics and will train pharmacists to counsel customers on kicking the habit. “We are seeing this tobacco decision as an opportunity to connect even more with consumers as an expert in health and beauty and to build our loyalty with them,” said Helena Foulkes, president of the company’s pharmacy business.
RI House approves bill to spur 38 Studios settlements
PROVIDENCE (AP) — Legislation designed to encourage settlements in the lawsuit against Curt Schilling over the collapse of 38 Studios passed the Rhode Island House Tuesday, but not before prompting another debate about whether the state should pay for its failed investment in the video game company. The measure aims to shield any defendant that settles in the case from lawsuits from co-defendants over damages for which that co-defendant is found liable. Supporters said that legal protection would be a big incentive for parties interested in settling the case.

St. Raphael overwhelmed by Smithfield’s shooting, 64-56
Sports editor emeritus
PAWTUCKET – St. Raphael Academy is running out of time when it comes to making the playoffs. Needing to spring an upset victory over visiting Smithfield on Tuesday night, the Saints fell victim to a dazzling shooting display by the Sentinels, who hit eight three-point field goals in the first half en route to a decisive 64-56 victory. The Saints got 25 points from Alcino Aviles-Soares, who was no match for the balanced offensive talents of a youthful Smithfield squad that improved to 11-3 in Division INorth with the victory. See SAINTS, page B3
Saints senior Chris Luciano (15) attempts the shot while being defended by Smithfield's Lorenzo Fernandes (21) and JJ Aboud (4), in back. Luciano finished with 11 points.
NORTH SMITHFIELD – As is usually the case, the home team celebrating “Senior Night,” or their last tilt of the season on their own floor, opens slowly due to the emotion of the moment. That’s what appeared to have happened to North Smithfield High while taking on stellar Division IIISouth foe Middletown on Tuesday evening. The Northmen, who went into intermission trailing the Islanders, 21-14, got an earful from head coach Alisha Pirri, then put those words to use in the final half. Pirri’s bunch outhustled Middletown during those final 16 points, outscoring Middletown 18-8, and left the Lovett Memorial Gymnasium with a satisfying, exciting 32-29 victory. The visitors had entered the contest with a 6-1 mark in II-South, but North Smithfield – now 9-2 overall – remained undefeated in the North section at 9-0. The reasons: Sophomore Sam Kent posted a “double-double” with a game-high 14 points and 10 rebounds, while senior co-captain Lexi Scalzo provided 10 points (nine via the trey) and Alexa Scalzo three boards. Senior center Angela Barber helped out with four points, 12 rebounds and

White falls to the I-Pod in Olympic stunner
Snowboarding legend finishes off the podium
The Japanese pair of 15-year-old Ayumu Hirano and 18-year-old Taku Hiraoka won silver and bronze, and the Americans were shut out on the halfpipe for the first time since the sport was introduced to the Olympics in 1998. Almost unthinkable, especially since White joined the mix and won the first of his two gold medals in 2006. He wanted to win two this year — one in halfpipe and one in the newly introduced sport of slopestyle — but ended up with none. “In hindsight, maybe it wasn’t the best move, but he’s ambitious,” said Jake Burton, the snowboarding guru and one of White’s very first sponsors. “That’s him. You wouldn’t want to see him trade that in for anything.” There’s more than one trendsetter in snowboarding, more than one person who likes to “progress the sport,” as they say on the halfpipe. The effervescent Podladtchikov, who now lives in and competes for Switzerland, thought up the Yolo trick first and landed it first. White watched the replay of I-Pod doing it last March in an event in Europe and immediately saw what he needed to do. Very quickly, he did it better than Podladtchikov and landed it twice in key events leading up to the Olympics. I-Pod tried it three times at the Winter X Games last month and fell all three times. “Practice,” he called it. See WHITE, page B4

Girlfriend staying as guest deserves more respect
Last August my husband and I allowed our son’s 17year-old girlfriend, “Lindsay,” to move into our home from out of state because she needs to live here for a year to establish residency for school. She’s a wonderful girl, mature, social and helpful. My problem is my other sons (ages 18 and 14) are very angry that we have allowed a “stranger” to move in. My 18year-old is a college student who lives on campus an hour away, but comes home on weekends. He and his younger brother feel I show favoritism to Lindsay and make frequent comments about the non-family member. They worry that I’m spending money on her even though they know her mom sends her money. I’ll admit it has been nice to have a girl around. My boys sleep half the day away on weekends, but she gets up and is happy to run errands with me. I still include my sons in many activities without Lindsay, as I always have, and I did not anticipate this hostility. I feel bad for her because they make little attempt to hide it. My son loves his girlfriend, and I want her to feel comfortable and welcome without alienating my other sons. Help! — MOM OF THREE SONS DEAR MOM: You and your husband are the parents, which means you are supvacy. I found out about it a few weeks ago, and I am deeply hurt that I was excluded. I feel I have never been included as a true part of the family, and this is just another example. He feels his explanation justifies his actions and that should be the end of it. I am concerned that he will keep other things from me he feels are none of my business in the future. I am not at all comfortable with this situation. Do you think I am overreacting? — STEPMONSTER IN THE SOUTH DEAR STEPMONSTER: Yes, I do. Your husband decided not to discuss something with you that he felt would violate his daughter’s privacy. Much as you might like to, you can’t push your way into being accepted. If relationships are going to happen, they must evolve naturally. So calm down and stop personalizing this. It isn’t a threat to your marriage unless you make it so. majority of my readers communicate with me via the Internet, as you did.

posed to be running this “asylum” — not the inmates. The decision about who should or should not be a guest in your home is not up to your jealous older and younger boys, who appear to be suffering from a form of “sibling” rivalry. As a guest in your home, Lindsay should be treated with respect, and it’s not happening. You should insist upon it, and if your wishes are not complied with, there should be consequences.

In this day and age, with computers and the ability to backspace, cut, paste and delete so easily, why do you still use a P.S.? Seems to me that P.S. needs to be used only with handwritten letters. — CANDICE IN PHOENIX DEAR CANDICE: Mmmm ... not so fast. The

By HOLIDAY MATHIS ARIES (March 21-April 19). Those who play it safe are technically still playing, but if you have anything to do with picking the team, they won’t be playing with you. You want to be in the game with fellow risk takers. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Fixing an ailing relationship of your own might be difficult but is entirely within the realm of possibility. Fixing someone else’s ailing relationship is totally impossible, so don’t waste your time trying. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some elements of your domestic scene are not working well. You’ll get the chance to revise, eliminate and improve. You are powerful, and there is more within your realm of control than there was before. CANCER (June 22-July 22). A fun secret will be revealed. This one will bring new information about someone you thought you knew well. It might have to do with a crush or a surprising study or interest. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You feel it’s your responsibility to provide excitement, entertainment, warmth and electricity to a lackluster scene. Before you take over, consider whether you would be better off just starting a totally new scene from scratch. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t confuse publicity with facts. Also, be careful not to mistake people for the roles they are playing. You’ll make the smartest decisions when you base them on the underlying truth of things. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). On days like this, your aesthetic sensors are so apparent that you have a hard time even looking at ugly things. You want everything to be as beautiful as it is inside your mind. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not be highly motivated by the job before you, but the good news is that there is plenty of reason to take it anyway. For starters, it will free you up to do the thing you really want to be doing! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). No matter how fast you are, you can’t win the race if you don’t cross the finish line. The one who finishes a job will get full credit, whether finishing entailed 10 or 90 percent of the effort. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your reality conflicts with another person’s, and that’s something simply to accept. No one is right, and no one is crazy, either. Each person is entitled to his or her own point of view. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your laughter gets others laughing. It represents togetherness and a shared point of view. It will be the remedy for what ails you and afflicts others, too. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some ask for what they need. Others demand it or accuse those who aren’t giving accordingly of being selfish. The ones who are acting up aren’t necessarily doing so inappropriately. Unfortunately, asking is not always enough.

after Speaker John Boehner announced that his fractured party would relent. Just 28 Republicans voted for the measure, including Boehner and his top lieutenants. But 193 Democrats more than compensated for the low support among Republicans. Senate Democrats hoped to vote on the legislation as early as Wednesday and send it to Obama for his signature. The move was denounced by many conservative groups but came after most Republicans in the House made clear they had no taste for another high-stakes fight with Obama over the nation’s debt ceiling, which must be raised so the government can borrow money to pay all of its bills. The bill would permit the Treasury Department to borrow normally for another 13 months, putting off the chance of a debt crisis well past the November elections and providing time for a newly elected Congress to decide how to handle the issue. Just Monday, Republicans suggested pairing the debt measure with legislation to roll back a recent cut in the inflation adjustment of pension benefits for working age military retirees. Democrats insisted on a debt measure completely clean of unrelated legislation. “The full faith and credit (of the United States) should be unquestioned and it is not negotiable,” said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. The vote comes four months after Washington defused a government shutdown and debt crisis that burned Republicans politically — an experience they did not want to repeat. The White House applauded Tuesday’s vote. “Tonight’s vote is a positive step in moving away from the political brinkmanship that’s a needless drag on our economy,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said. He said Congress should now take additional steps to strengthen the economy, and pressed efforts by Obama and Democrats to restore jobless benefits to the long-term unemployed and to increase the minimum wage. Tuesday’s developments, which many Capitol Hill insiders saw coming, mark a reversal of the GOP’s strategy of trying to use the

House approves suspension of Fed debt limit
Republicans back off from showdown with White House
Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Unwilling to spook the markets and divided among themselves, House Republicans backed away from a battle over the government’s debt limit Tuesday and permitted President Barack Obama’s Democratic allies to drive quick passage of a measure extending Treasury’s borrowing authority without any concessions from the White House. The 221-201 vote came hours
debt limit to force spending cuts or other concessions on Obama. The president yielded to such demands in 2011 — before his re-election — but has since boxed in Republicans by refusing to negotiate. “I am disappointed that Democrats have walked away from the table,” said Dave Camp, RMich., the glum chairman of the Ways and Means Committee. “But for as disappointed as I am, I cannot in good conscience let the Democrats’ refusal to engage, lead to a default.”" Boehner, R-Ohio, made the announcement after conservatives failed to rally around his latest plan, floated Monday, to tie lifting the debt ceiling to a measure to reverse cuts to military pensions that were enacted less than two months ago.
