— Boeing is deciding what
to do with six newly manufactured commercial airplane
bodies that fell off a train in
a derailment in western
Montana, including three that
slid down a steep riverbank,
a company spokeswoman
said Monday.
Experts from Boeing Co.
and Spirit AeroSystems,
which built the fuselages, are
at the site of Thursday's
derailment spokeswoman
Dina Weiss said in a statement.
"Once we have completed
our assessment of damages
and determined our next
course of action, we will
decide what to do with the
fuselages," she said.
She said in a statement
that other Boeing 777 and
747 airplane parts on some
of the 19 cars that went off
the tracks appear undamaged.

PAWTUCKET – One of
the city’s leading outreach
agencies for the chronically homeless says it will
make a significant dent in
its waiting list for supportive housing, thanks to a
$312,000 grant from the
federal government.
The Mental Health
Association of Rhode
Island has about 85 people
on the waiting list, which
is more than twice the
number who are on track
for an apartment or
already in one, according
to Susan C. Jacobsen, the
executive director.
“This will enable us to
move people off the wait
list into permanent supportive housing,” she said.
“It’s hard for someone to
become well and heal
properly when they’re living on the street.”
On the last day of the
seasonal break before the
Congress reconvenes, U.S.
Rep. David Cicilline, DRI, met with Jacobson and
Jessica Mowry, senior
director of program services, to congratulate them
for winning the HUD
Continuity of Care grant
and thank them for their
service. Cicilline and other
members of the congressional delegation helped
bring home nearly
$900,000 in COC grants
from HUD for several
agencies, the single
biggest piece of which
went to MHARI.

PAWTUCKET – A city
motorist is facing serious
charges after he allegedly
slammed into a parked car
and then tried to run over
three people who attempted
to come to his aid Sunday
night, police said.
Steven M. DaSilva, 32, of
43 Benefit St., was charged
with three counts of aggravated assault, a felony; reckless
driving; leaving the scene of
an accident; operating an
unregistered motor vehicle;
and operating without proof
of insurance.
Shortly before midnight,
police said, DaSilva was
operating a 1995 sedan when
he struck the parked vehicle
near 937 Roosevelt Ave.
Several witnesses thought he
might have been injured and
approached his vehicle on
foot to try to help him.
DaSilva’s car was heavily
damaged and leaking fluid,
said Detective Maj. Arthur
Martins, but he managed to
get the vehicle in gear and
back away from the wreckage. Then he deliberately
steered toward the people and
attempted to run them down.
DaSilva fled the scene, but
police followed the trail of
fluids from the crash to his
home, about a quarter mile
away. The only sign that

Prosecutor: Tsarnaev
said martyrs go to heaven
By JOSEPH FITZGERALD
AP Legal Affairs Writer

BOSTON — Boston Marathon bombing suspect
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told a friend a month before the deadly
attack that he knew how to make a bomb and said it's good
to be a martyr because you "die with a
smile on your face and go straight to heaven," a federal prosecutor told jurors
Monday at the friend's obstruction trial.
Tsarnaev also texted the friend, Azamat
Tazhayakov, 90 minutes after the bombings
and said, "Don't go thinking it's me,"
Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephanie
Tsarnaev
Siegmann said.
Siegmann's comments came during opening statements
at Tazhayakov's trial, a prosecution that promises to provide a glimpse into the government's case against Tsarnaev.
Tsarnaev is scheduled to go on trial in November on
charges that carry the possibility of the death penalty.
Prosecutors say he and his older brother, Tamerlan, built

EAST PROVIDENCE – Edward R. Lynch, one of
two potential candidates seeking the Ward 1 seat on
the East Providence City Council, announced Monday
that has withdrawn from the race.
That means Robert Britto, who ran for the state representative District 63 seat in 2012, is now the sole
candidate for the Ward 1 seat held by City Council
President James Briden, who announced earlier this
month that he will not run for re-election in the fall.
Lynch, 73, a former five-term state representative,
says he is leaving politics to spend more time with his
wife and family.
“I am 73 years old now, and I have done a lot of

Homeless
MHARI program called
ACCESS as a model for
delivering “wraparound”
services to one of the most
hard-to-reach populations –
the chronically homeless
who also suffer from substance abuse and medical
problems, especially mental
health issues. ACCESS is an
acronym that stands for
Accessing Community Care
and Services through
Successful Supports.
“They have a great program and these are always
very competitive grants so
we were able to go out there
and advocate for them,” said
Cicilline. “With diminishing
state resources it makes it
doubly important for us to
obtain federal resources to
maintain programs like this.”
Jacobsen said ACCESS is
part of a growing national
movement that emphasizes
the need to make housing the
most important ingredient in
a blended approach to
addressing homelessness
that’s also coupled with
social service outreach and
medical supports.
Re-homing the specialized group of clients who are
ACCESS’s key focus isn’t as
simple as providing them
with rental assistance, which
is why some of the grant will
also be used for outreach and
expanded support services.
Clients suffering from complex psychiatric issues, for
example, may not be in a
position to make voluntary
decisions about whether
they’re ready to accept an
offer of shelter.
“It’s not as simple as they
do or they don’t want it,”
says Jacobsen. “It’s a complicated issue with lots and
lots of factors.”
A significant portion of
MHARI’s work involves the
process of engaging people
who are living in shelters,
tents or on the street and
slowly ramping up their
involvement with medical,
counseling and other services as they transition to permanent supportive housing.
Sometimes, says Jacobsen,
the process can take years.
Mowry says ACCESS is
in discussions with the medical school at Brown
University about establishing
a “street medicine” program

Martins said there was

his business, which he has

1971, also keeps him
extremely busy.
Lynch says he is throwing his support behind
Britto, whom he considers a

“I believe we have a really good candidate to represent Ward I, and that is my
good friend, Bob Britto,”
Lynch said. “I met Bob several years ago, and when he
became a candidate for state

Bombing
two bombs and placed them
near the finish line of the
2013 marathon to retaliate
against the U.S. for its
actions in Muslim countries.
The explosions killed three
people and injured more than
260. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died
following a shootout with
police several days later.
Tazhayakov, 20, has
pleaded not guilty to obstruction of justice and conspiracy
charges. He and his roommate, Dias Kadyrbayev, went
to Tsarnaev's University of
Massachusetts-Dartmouth
dorm room several days after
the bombing and took a laptop computer and a backpack
containing fireworks that had
black powder spilling out or
had been emptied of their
powder, Siegmann told the
jury.
"The government will
prove to you that the defendant and his co-conspirator
removed the backpack for
one reason, and that reason
was to protect their friend
who they had just learned
was one of the two suspected
marathon bombers,"
Siegmann said.

that would allow medical
residents to work with the
homeless as part of their residency training.
Homelessness is as much
its own problem as a symptom of others, including
mental health issues, says
Cicilline. It’s good social
policy to treat them together,
but supportive services for
clients who are re-homed are
often shortchanged in the
funding equation, he thinks,
because of the stigmatization
of mental illness.
“It’s accepted in a way
that would never be tolerated
for any other illness,” he
said.
ACCESS strives to place
the homeless in “scattered
site” apartments in neighborhoods clients identify as
familiar, according to
Jacobsen.
The one-year grant covers
the period from Aug. 1 to
July 31, 2015 and is administered through Rhode Island
Housing.
When ACCESS begins
drawing from the grant, the
program will be officially
rechristened ACCESS to
Home, according to Mowry.
ACCESS was one of five
programs in the state that
received a total of $856,503.
Most of the balance went to
Crossroads Rapid ReHousing Project for Families
and the Rhode Island
Housing Permanent
Supporting Housing Project.
U.S. Housing Secretary
Shaun Donovan said the federal government gave out
more than $140 million in
the latest round of grants to
hundreds of agencies, including many new ones, that are
attempting to implement programs to stanch homelessness by quickly getting
clients into shelter and apartments.
“Communities all across
the country are changing
their approach to reducing
homelessness and now is not
the time to retreat from
doing what we know works
– investing in proven strategies such as ‘Rapid Re-housing’ and ‘Housing First’ help
to break the cycle of homelessness as we’ve known it
in these communities,” said
Donovan.
Donovan said many of the
recipients were forced to
implement five-percent cuts
in their budgets earlier year
because of the federal
sequestration.
He added, “During this
tough budget climate, ending
homelessness requires a continued bipartisan commitment from Congress. The
grantees receiving
funds...join the thousands of
local programs that are
already on the front lines
ending homelessness as we
know it.”
HUD recently announced
its 2013 estimate of the num-
ber of homeless persons in
America. Approximately
3,000 cities and counties
reported 610,000 homeless
persons on a single night in
January of 2013, down 6.1
percent since 2010. During
the same period, HUD found
significant declines among
the long-term or chronic
homeless population (15.7
percent) and homeless veterans (24.2 percent).

be in the State House as a
representative or senator.”
Lynch says he is leaving
the world of politics knowing that he did his best.
“I believe I accomplished
many things in my five
terms in the State House,
along with the other East
Providence representatives,
and our then city manager,
Paul Lemont,” he said.
Lynch also offered his
parting views on the city
manager’s position and the
renewed calls for the city of
East Providence to consider
switching to an elected
mayor form of government.
“I do have to say this one
thing though, and that is I
am totally against having an
elected mayor in this city. It
is a lot safer with a city
manager form of government,” he said. “And, we
definitely do not have to
advertise all over the country for a city manager when
we have qualified people
right here in Rhode Island.
We also have excellent
police and fire departments,
and, again, when selecting a
new chief, it should be within the ranks of our police
and fire departments.”
There are other election
races shaping up in East
Providence this fall.
Incumbent City
Councilmen Helder J.
Cunha, Thomas A. Rose, Jr.,
Christine A. Rossi and Tracy
A. Capobianco have all filed
declaration papers for reelection.
Two of them – Rose and
Rossi – will face election
challenges.
Also filing declaration
papers last month was candidate Candace Caine Seel,
who will challenge Rose for
the Ward 3 City Council
seat, and Timothy J. Conley,
a member of the School
Committee and former city
councilman, who will challenge Rossi for the Ward 4
seat on the council.
Seel ran against Rose in
2012 and came close to winning the race by garnering
43 percent of the vote in the
general election.
Incumbent School
Committeeman Anthony J.
Ferreira filed papers for a
second term to the Ward 2
seat on the School
Committee, while former
School Committee
Chairman Charlie Tsonos
has filed papers for re-election to the Ward 1 seat on
the committee.
Also filing papers for
election to the School
Committee were Nathan W.
Cahoon for the Ward 3 seat,
and Karen Nicole Doucette
for the Ward 4 seat on the
committee.
Doucette and Cahoon are
first-time candidates, while
Tsonos of Riverside served
previously on the School
Committee and ran unsuccessfully for state representative in 2012.
On the state government
side, state Rep. Katherine S.
Kazarian (D-Dist. 63, East
Providence) filed papers to
run for a second term, while
state Rep. Helio Melo (DDistr. 64) filed papers for a

credited by clients with
helping to reduce pain
issues, stress or improving
mobility by reducing the
impact of physical ailments,

Andrade said the full

just one.
The Spa sells memberships of $59 for a single

any additional sessions for
$49. Some clients may
come in for just one session
a month or possibly two or
more, she noted.
The Spa’s client base

according to Andrade.

Prosecutors acknowledge
that Kadyrbayev is the one
who actually put the backpack in the trash but said
Tazhayakov agreed to get rid
of it. She described a conversation Tsarnaev had with
Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev
a month before the bombings
while they ate together at a
restaurant.
"Tsarnaev told the defendant and Kadyrbayev that it
was good to die as a shaheed,
or a martyr, as you would die
with a smile on your face and
go straight to heaven," she
said.
During that same meal,
Siegmann said, Tsarnaev also
told his friends he knew how
to make a bomb and went on
to list the ingredients, including gunpowder or explosive
powder like what was found
in the fireworks inside the
backpack.
Tazhayakov's defense
attorney, Nicholas
Wooldridge, urged jurors not
be swayed by the emotional
impact of the marathon
bombings. He asked them
instead to focus on
Tazhayakov's actions.
"Azamat's actions will
show that he never intended
to obstruct justice. As a matter of fact, he never intended
to help the bomber himself,"
Wooldridge said. As the
lawyers outlined their cases
to the jury, the mother of two
men who each lost their right
leg in the bombings listened
in court. Liz Norden declined
to comment afterward.
Wooldridge said Tazhayakov
went to Tsarnaev's dorm
room with Kadyrbayev three
days after the bombings and
hours after the FBI released
video footage and photos of
the brothers.

Michael D’Amara as his
third Spa location.
D’Amara also operates
Massage Envy Spas in
Cranston and East
Greenwich.
The Spa ownership is a
second career for D’Amara
and one that he is very glad
to have taken on.
“I was in the hotel business for 20 years and decided to make a change five
years ago,” he said. A long
time massage consumer
himself, D’Amara said it
was an easy decision for
him to open his first business in the industry. “I’ve
had a bad back so I know
personally how it helps
people,” he said.
Massage therapy and
facial care by an esthetician
is also a strong growth
business, he noted.
Today, between all three
of his locations, D’Amara
has 5,000 members and the
potential for even more as
the new Lincoln location
becomes established.
It is also a business that
gives back to the local
economy. “We employ 125
people in the three locations so we have created a
lot of jobs,” he said.
Margo Andrade, clinic
manager, said the Spa
offers both its facial line of
services and several
options for massage therapy.

No, the Square Mile City is more

What functions as our “main

With just a few exceptions —
Bank of America, 7/11, Subway, the
pharmacy chains — both Dexter and
Broad are dotted with small, familyowned operations: restaurants, laundromats, multi-services, restaurants,
and, occasionally, restaurants.
Apparently we like to eat! Could a
brother get a bookstore, a clothing
store, anything? There are stores that
sell cell phones, and where you can
also pay your bills. Then there are
stores where you can pay your bills,
and also choose from a selection of
cell phones.
Some of these enterprises are flyby-night, selling minutes today,
gone in minutes tomorrow. Yet some

But will 99 Cent City put out a sign

of Raymond D’Alessio, Jr. since
2000. But call him “Ray”; everyone
else does. They’ve long had an
arrangement with the city of CF to
handle towing and storage, 24/7,
and they work on the city’s fleet of
cruisers. I don’t know about you,
but when I’m being ticketed by CF’s
finest, I get extremely miffed if the
vehicle they are driving has minor
body damage!
LeMyre’s tow trucks are fire
engine red, with elaborate, elegant
gold calligraphic lettering on the
sides. That alone should tip you off
that this is not your ordinary autobody place.
Ray ran an autobody shop prior
to purchasing LeMyre’s. He’s especially dedicated to Central Falls
causes. “I always donate to community causes,” says Ray, mentioning
buying Halloween candy annually
for a Progreso Latino event, and
regularly donating gift certificates
and other prizes to The Learning
Community for fundraisers, “to raf-
fle off'.”
Why? “This is where I grew up,”
says Ray, who wants to give back to
his community. He’s working these
days with his son, an arrangement
he describes as “Great. I cannot
believe that I reached this level.
When I bought this place he was
running around, he was 2 years old,
he pretty much grew up here, now
he’s working in the shop.”
A good body shop doesn’t attract
attention, after all. When a car is
restored after an accident, you want
it to look like nothing ever happened. It’s like plastic surgery: if
you can see the scars, not good.
(Note to self: next lipo Sweden, not
Brazil again. And an actual office
instead of a van parked in an alley. I
guess some lessons are learned the
hard way.)
LeMyre’s is the sort of place that
doesn't advertise, doesn’t need to,
likely never did. Everything is word
of mouth, reputation. It’s also the
type of place, like a barber shop or
coffee shop, where people seem to
organically congregate and talk,
whether or not they are having a
vehicle repaired. You might well
find former CF Police Chief Joseph
Moran there, or one of many other
prominent community members
chatting in the small waiting room.
This weekend I spoke with Lee
Matthews of Lincoln, who grew up
in Central Falls. If there is a familiar
ring to that name, perhaps it is
because Mathews was mayor of
Central Falls, from 1996 to 2004.
Mayor Mathews said this of Ray
and the shop: "He (Ray) grew up in
the city and never forgot the city
itself, the people of the city. He’s
always been there if you asked him
for help. When I was in office he
used to tow vehicles for the city, all
hours of the day or night, at no
charge.”
Ray took over the business, said
Matthews, and it was a “quality
business providing quality service.
This is where my parents took their
cars when they had an accident. But
Ray made it bigger, and better,
added to it, its an upstanding business for the community.”
Matthews works in construction
management these days and said he
is out of politics completely. He
mentioned projects at several universities, including Johnson &
Wales, Rhode Island College, and
the University of Rhode Island, as
well as dock work on the dock and
building in Newport destroyed in
the recent fire. “We did the railings,
and got that done, then there was the
fire.” Good news: your railings are
done. Bad news: remember your
dock?...
A good body man in 2014 must
be “versatile,” says Ray, noting the
advent of increased levels of computer technology, along with the
need to coordinate work with
mechanics. “Metal’s thinner, making
it harder to fix, easier often to
replace. Sometimes we are in the
business just of replacing parts. The
days of taking a mallet to a heavy
steel body are long gone. These new
hybrids, electric vehicles, they are a
totally different animal.”
Quite a number of classic cars
get the spa treatment over at
LeMyre’s. Former coach Ed
McVeigh, recent area award recipient, owns a 1963, tan, Studebaker,
and she is a beaut, for sure. One of
the challenges of classic cars, of
course, is the amount of time spent
working on them vs. driving, and
the difficulty of acquiring parts. Its
hard to find parts for a 1963 car in
2014, though car clubs, auto graveyards, and the Internet have facilitat-
ed location of parts quite a bit, and
there also is a fledgling business in
fabrication of “new” parts for old
cars for the very popular cars like
Mustangs which thousands have
restored. Let’s hope Mr. McVeight
enters that classic Studebaker in the
2014 Central Falls annual Antique
and Custom Car Show in August.
Office walls are adorned with
certificates and plaques from the
likes of the City of Central Falls, the
CF Panthers youth football team, the
Darlington Spinners little league
baseball team, as well as the RI
Veterans Center, Davies technical
school train to work program, and
more.
The phrase “Salt of the earth”
comes to mind. A few months back,
Ray once asked me to buy raffle
tickets for his niece’s school
fundraiser. I happily agreed, but then
never bought them, sorry, Ray.
Six people, including Ray’s son,
work at the shop. Ray calls it 6-plus,
6 1/2, counting his father-in-law.
Don’t worry, that’ll just be between
us. Shh...
Autobody is one of those counterintuitive businesses. You hope,
like insurance, that you won’t have
to use them. Calling LeMyre’s
means you’ve had a breakdown or
accident. But it is comforting to
know that they're there, working
away. Look, I like a healthy sandwich now and again, and nothing
against Jared or Apollo Ohno, but a
Subway is a Subway is a Subway.
But, there’s only one LeMyre’s.
The ZIP code? You know it, 02863.
Working hard, providing jobs,
helping out with the community.
Yeah, its pretty far from your
average body shop.

Cumberland police contract ready for mayor’s, union’s pens
McKee touting
savings on health,
retirement costs
By JOSEPH B. NADEAU
jnadeau@woonsocketcall.com
CUMBERLAND – It
took plenty of time to
resolve, but the town can
now look ahead to a known
forecast of costs for its new
contract with members of
the local police union.
Mayor Daniel J. McKee
said the last roadblocks in
the way of enactment of the
new contract — pending litigation from the past dispute
between the sides — have
been cleared, and he will be
holding a signing of the
agreement in the near future.
“The cases just got dismissed as part of the agreement, so we are proceeding
now to implement pay
increases in the highdeductible Health Savings
Account for medical benefits,” McKee said.
The contract changes,
which include an average of
2 percent per year for the
three prior years covered by
the agreement and the three
upcoming years going into
the future, will also help the
town reduce its projected
unfunded pension and other
benefit costs for years to
come, according McKee.
“This is very important
that the contract was agreed
upon and it will provide real
protection for the taxpayers
of Cumberland from unfunded liability over the years
and really high tax rates,” he
said.
The town had already
been able to reduce its
unfunded liability for healthcare benefits from $60 million to about $40 million
through prior contract
changes by moving retiring
police officers onto a Plan
65 Medicare benefit paid for
by the town in lieu of continuing private health care
coverage.
The new contract reduces
that $40 million cost projection even further, to $20 million, McKee said, allowing
the town to more properly
fund its remaining liabilities.
“At some point in time
the town’s unfunded liabilities would become 100 percent funded,” he said.
One of the key contributions of the contract in
reaching that goal is the provision that newly hired
members of the Police
Department eventually retiring at 25 years of service
will start collecting their
pensions at age 55 and also
no longer be provided private healthcare benefits by
the town after their retirements. A pension for a member retiring at 25 years of
service would be set at 50
percent of the average salary
for those years of work,
according to McKee. The
provision that all new officers retiring at 25 years will
no longer receive paid town
healthcare coverage will
have a significant impact on
the town meeting its unfunded liabilities, according to
McKee.
“In the short term it’s
more affordable for our tax-
payers to pay all benefits,
and for the officers it makes
the benefits they receive
very solvent in the long
term,” McKee said.
The town and the local
Fraternal Order Police
Lodge 14 membership have
been negotiating the new
agreement since the past
contract expired in July
2011.
The past years covered by
the agreement range from
zero percent to 3 percent in
raises, according to McKee
and the final three years ending June 30, 2017, an average of 3 percent in raises.
The sides filed a total of
five legal cases over the past
disputes regarding prior ratifications of the agreement
and its benefits options, and
all of those have been withdrawn from the courts,
according to McKee, who
has been authorized by the
Town Council to sign the
contract with Town Council
President James Higgins,
and will take that step with
the FOP representatives
when the final drafts of the
Moody’s raises Pawtucket’s debt outlook to stable
PAWTUCKET – The
city’s improving financial picture received further objective
recognition from a major
credit rating agency last
week, with Moody’s affirming the city’s current bond
rating at investment grade
while raising Pawtucket’s rating outlook for general obligation debt from negative to
stable. The credit outlook on
other outstanding city debt
was similarly raised.
Last November, Fitch
Ratings also affirmed its
investment grade rating of
city general obligation bonds
while boosting the city’s credit outlook from stable to positive, its second outlook
upgrade in two years.
“The Moody’s rating affirmation and outlook upgrade
continue the trend of positive
financial news for our residents and taxpayers and show
that the city is on a fiscal path
to progress,” Mayor Donald
R. Grebien said. “We still
have a long way to go but
we’re steadily getting there.”
Moody’s affirmed its Baa2
rating on the city’s $34.9 million in long-term general obligation bonds.
According to Moody’s rating system, obligations rated
Baa are medium investment
grade with moderate credit
risk, with the 2 modifier designating the debt obligations
at a mid-range ranking in the
category.
The report noted the city
faces financial challenges
including an accumulated
deficit in the School
Unrestricted Fund, low
income indicators and large
unfunded pension and other
post-employment benefits.

THE TIMES — Tuesday, July 8, 2014
Obama’s ‘unity government’
plan in Iraq is just a mirage
The Obama administration has developed a bad habit of founding its Middle
East strategies on wishful thinking. In the
past year, it has supposed that Syrian
President Bashar Assad would peacefully
agree to cede power at a Geneva peace
conference, that the Egyptian generals
who carried out a military coup would
lead the country back to democracy and
that Israelis and Palestinians were ready
and willing to reach a final peace settlement in a matter of months.
Now the administration has a new
hope: that the frighteningly extreme and
war-hungry al-Qaida state that has established itself in western Iraq and eastern
Syria can be tackled through the creation
of a new, "inclusive" government in
Baghdad that will unite Shiite, Sunni and
Kurdish forces against the terrorists.
Like the administration's previous
schemes, the unity government plan has
the advantage of basing itself on preexisting doctrine and of requiring little action
from the United States other than diplomatic jaw-boning.
Yet as before, U.S. allies in the region
are warning that the policy has little
chance of succeeding — and is merely
delaying a more realistic response.
Judging from what they said in a visit to
The Washington Post, two senior Kurdish
leaders gave the White House and State
Department a bracing dose of straight talk
last week.
Fuad Hussein, the chief of staff to the
president of Iraqi Kurdistan, and Falah
Mustafa Bakir, the head of the department
of foreign relations, had two basic points
to make: A new Iraqi government, if at all
possible, will have to exclude current
prime minister Nouri al-Maliki while
drastically revising the balance of power
between Baghdad and the regions; and
even if that succeeds, the defeat of alQaida will require more than Iraqi forces.
"We have got a new reality," said
Hussein. "We have got three states in one
in Iraq. We have a new state between us
in Kurdistan and Baghdad. So we cannot
go back to the past."
The collapse of the Iraqi Army in
northern and Western Iraq allowed the
Kurds to expand their territory by about
40 percent, including the city of Kirkuk.
They also control up to a quarter of Iraq's
oil production. Kurdistan now has a
1,035-kilometer border with the Islamic
State, the entity established by al-Qaida
— and only 15 kilometers of border with
what remains of Iraq.
Pressed by Secretary of State John
Kerry, the Kurds agreed to negotiate on a
new central government. But they insisted
they also will go forward with a referen-
GUEST COMMENTARY
By Jackson Diehl
dum on "self-determination for
Kurdistan." They have no intention of
returning to a status in which they depend
on the central government for revenue,
refrain from directly exporting their own
oil and defer their claim to Kirkuk.
"The Kurds are being told to lead the
engagement" for a new government, said
Bakir, in a not-so-subtle reference to
Kerry. "In return for what?"
Even if the Kurds were more enthusiastic, the prospect of a unity government in
Baghdad would be questionable. Standing
in the way is Maliki, who appears to have
the backing of Iran as well as the Assad
government in Syria. This axis of Shiite
hardliners appears set on battling the
Sunni al-Qaida forces without concessions
to the Kurds or moderate Sunnis. A broadly supported Shiite alternative to Maliki
has yet to appear.
A political fix might be possible if Iran
concludes that Maliki must go. But even
then, Iraqi forces are unlikely to liquidate
the al-Qaida state, say the Kurds. "We
can't do it alone," Hussein said flatly.
"This is a terrorist organization. They
have thousands of fighters. They have got
sophisticated American weapons.”
Hussein said it would take "collective
action" by "a regional coalition" to eliminate the al-Qaida state. Then he grimly
ran down the list of potential actors: Iran,
he said, would limit itself to defending
Baghdad and the Shiite Holy places.
Turkey, which chose not to intervene in
Syria, would be even more reluctant to
fight in Iraq. And the United States? "This
government is not going to send troops."
If the Kurds are right, the Middle East
will be coping with an aggressive alQaida state in its midst for the foreseeable
future. Kurdistan will consolidate its position as a de facto, if not de jure, independent state. And the Obama administration's
strategy of re-creating a unified Iraq under
a strong central government will, like its
previous Middle East schemes, prove a
mirage.
Jackson Diehl writes for The
Washington Post.
Letters to the Editor
Postponing NECAP a positive move
It is welcome news that the Rhode
Island General Assembly has postponed the
use of high-stakes testing as a graduation
requirement and I hope that this move is
part of a greater discussion of the role that
these standardized tests should play in the
classroom.
I believe that it is important that our
schools in Pawtucket should be accountable for their performance and that the
communities that they serve should always
be aware of the quality of education that
they offer. What I do not believe is that
standardized testing is the best way to
measure this performance. There are many
other quantifiable ways to determine the
success of a school. Graduation rates, college admission, and successful job placement at the high school level are a few
clear examples. These examples of data are
also much better measures of how well a
school is actually preparing the students for
success, in a way that a single standardized
test, taken under pressure, is not. Even colleges are increasingly moving away from
the SAT as a measure of student performance, understanding that one score is not
the measure of a student’s worth.
These tests are dreaded by students and
parents, a burden on teachers, who must
dedicate so much of valuable class time to
preparation and administration, and not
even a useful measure of success. As a
member of the Pawtucket School
Committee, I will advocate for decreasing
the focus on these tests and instead increasing the focus on actual hands-on learning.

We will fight for our COLAs
As I write you this day I suddenly realize the irony of the celebration of our
nation's birthday and the topic of which I
write.
That irony is depicted in the action the
mayor of the City of Pawtucket has taken
(suspending the pension COLA's for three
years) and the effect thereof. I say this
because the document that proscribes our
freedom, the United States Constitution,
strictly prohibits the action the mayor has
taken. Article 1 Section 10 provides that no
state shall" impair the obligations of contract" and in the instant situation the mayor
has broken the CBA's of both the police
and fire contracts.
To take this a step further, not only did
he take the action, he did it without the
“specific” authority of the City Council. It
is my understanding that it is by the council’s authority that all contracts are ratified,
so conversely wouldn't the City Council
have to authorize violations of the contracts that would ultimately violate the U.S.
Constitution?
Did the mayor consult legal counsel
when he took this action? There have been
numerous actions that have been taken
throughout the United States that have been
tried in violation of the U.S.Constitution
and state constitutions as well. In many of
those cases particularly federal court cases
the plaintiffs prevailed and were awarded
attorneys fees following a judgment.
Our association will not be a victim of
Mayor Grebien's attempt to make a case
study for political science academia at our
expense.
Our membership — after serving the
city for the required number of years —
and having served honorably and faithfully
— expect what we bargained for. We will
not give up without a fight.
We allege that the City of Pawtucket
violated the United States Constitution
when they broke the contract.

It’s time for progressives to
reclaim the Constitution
You cannot talk for very long to a conservative these days without hearing the
words “constitutional” and “constitutionalist.”
Formulations such as “I am a constitutional conservative” or “I
am a constitutionalist”
are tea party habits, but
they are not confined to
its ranks. Many kinds of
conservatives contend
that everything they
believe is thoroughly
consistent with the views
and intentions of our
18th-century Founders.
E.J. Dionne
Wielding pocket-sized
copies of the
Constitution, they like to
cite it to settle political disputes. Writing in
the YG Network’s recently issued conservative manifesto, “Room to Grow,” Ramesh
Ponnuru argues that there is a new and salutary “popular interest in constitutionalism.”
“Instead of treating the Constitution as
the property of lawyers and judges,” he
notes, “it proposes that legislators, and even
citizen-activists, have an independent duty
to evaluate the constitutionality of legislation.”
One plausible progressive response is to
see Ponnuru’s exercise as doomed from the
start. The framers could not possibly have
foreseen what the world would look like in
2014. In any event, they got some important things wrong, most glaringly their document’s acceptance of slavery.
Moreover, because the Constitution was
written primarily as a foundation for government, it can answer only so many questions. David Strauss of the University of
Chicago Law School authored a book called
“The Living Constitution” to make plain
that there is a lot more to this concept than
its detractors suggest. He notes that “a great
part of the framers’ genius lay exactly in
their ability to leave provisions general
when they should be left general, so as not
to undermine the document’s ability to
serve as common ground.”
The problem with “originalists,” Strauss
says, is that they “take general provisions
and make them specific,” even when
they’re not. One might add that the originalists’ versions of specificity often seem to
overlap with their political preferences.
Nonetheless, progressives should take
Ponnuru’s proposal seriously and think constitutionally themselves. In doing so, they
would challenge conservative claims about
what the Constitution really demands.
In the May issue of the Boston
University Law Review, Joseph R. Fishkin
and William E. Forbath of the University of
Texas School of Law show that at key turning points in our history (the Jacksonian
era, the Populist and Progressive moments
and the New Deal), opponents of rising
inequality made strong arguments “that we
cannot keep our constitutional democracy
— our republican form of government —
without constitutional restraints against oligarchy and a political economy that maintains a broad middle class, accessible to
everyone.”
Their article is called “The AntiOligarchy Constitution,” though Forbath
told me that he and Fishkin may give the
book they’re writing on the topic the more
upbeat title “The Constitution of
Opportunity.” Their view is that by empowering the wealthy in our political system,
Supreme Court decisions such as Citizens
United directly contradict the Constitution’s
central commitment to shared self-rule.
“Extreme concentrations of economic
and political power undermine equal opportunity and equal citizenship,” they write.
“In this way, oligarchy is incompatible
with, and a threat to, the American constitutional scheme.”
While their overarching vision contrasts
sharply with Ponnuru’s, they make a similar
critique of what they call an excessively
“court-centered” approach to constitutionalism. “Constitutional politics during the 19th
and early 20th centuries” was very different
and the subject of democratic deliberation.
In earlier eras, they say, the Constitution
was seen as not simply permitting but actually requiring “affirmative legislation?.?.?.
to ensure a wide distribution of opportunity” and to address “the problem of oligarchy in a modern capitalist society.”
The authors remind us of Franklin
Roosevelt’s warning that “the inevitable
consequence” of placing “economic and
financial control in the hands of the few”
would be “the destruction of the base of our
form of government.” And writing during
the Gilded Age, a time like ours in many
ways, the journalist James F. Hudson
argued that “imbedded” in the Constitution
is “the principle” mandating “the widest
distribution among the people, not only of
political power, but of the advantages of
wealth, education and social influence.”
The idea of a Constitution of
Opportunity is both refreshing and relevant.
For too long, progressives have allowed
conservatives to monopolize claims of fealty to our unifying national document. In
fact, those who would battle rising economic inequalities to create a robust middle
class should insist that it’s they who are
most loyal to the Constitution’s core purpose. Broadly shared well-being is essential
to the framers’ promise that “We the people” will be the stewards of our government.

the plaza.
These renovations will
create a large civic space,
reorganize bus berth locations and improve pedestrian
connections to and from the
plaza. The work is expected
to be complete by fall. All
routes will be slightly
detoured to avoid entering
Kennedy Plaza. Bus stops
will be relocated to
Exchange Terrace, Sabin
Street, Exchange Street,
Fountain Street and Steeple
Street. Park N’ Ride service
will be relocated from
Exchange Terrace to Sabin
Street but will continue to
pick up passengers at other
downtown locations. Peter
Pan and Greyhound passengers will continue to load
and unload at their current
stop in front of the Kennedy
Plaza Terminal.
Ticketing and other passenger amenities will remain
open inside the Kennedy
Plaza Terminal during the
construction period.
RIPTA’s Kennedy Plaza
sales and information outlet
will remain open during
construction.
Customers are advised to
enter through the side door
on the Fulton Street side,
near City Hall.
RIPTA passengers can
find information on temporary bus stop locations on
signage in the plaza, on
RIPTA buses and on
RIPTA’s website. Please see
the attached map for temporary bus stop locations.
Informational outreach
teams will be distributing

Scrapbooks full of memories
will be cherished by friends
DEAR ABBY:
May I comment about the
question from “Unsure in the
West” (April 6), who wanted
to create scrapbooks out of
all the cards and letters she
received over the years? My
generation (30s) is all about
social media. “Unsure” mentioned that all the items she
wanted to include were preFacebook. I am a bit old-fashioned (or maybe stubborn) so
I don’t do Facebook or
Twitter, and I don’t understand the importance of a
“hashtag.” I have no idea how
to Skype, nor do I pay my
bills online.
I think the scrapbook idea
is wonderful. There is something special about having
tangible items to go along
with important milestones
and memories. Even if the
gifts themselves don’t strike a
chord with her friends, surely
the consideration and time
she puts into the scrapbooks
will make her loved ones realize how important they are to
her. I say, proceed with confidence. Your friends are lucky
to have you.
— L.K. IN THE MIDWEST
DEAR L.K.: Like you,
readers overwhelmingly support “Unsure” in her efforts
to create scrapbooks of memories for her friends. Read
on:
DEAR ABBY:
I have also saved cards,

letters, wedding photos and
pictures of newborns, etc.,
for several decades. A few
years ago, I simply returned
them to the people who had
sent them. Nearly all of the
recipients squealed with
delight as they thanked me,
having realized I had gifted
them with “time capsules” of
their lives. Only one friend
was offended that I had
returned her items. She said
she was “appalled” that I didn’t cherish them myself. The
joy expressed by the others
superseded the angry friend.
“Unsure,” return those items
to the senders!
— LINDA IN INDIANA
I am not a crafter and I’m
not very sentimental. I don’t
enjoy what I consider clutter.
As I’ve grown older, I have
done my best to pare down
and eliminate things I no
longer have use for. I have
embraced technology. If
“Unsure” were my friend, I
would appreciate it more if
she scanned anything she
wanted to give back to me.
Either way, I would probably
view the scrapbook or ebook, and then deep-six it
after the viewing. It crossed
my mind that perhaps
“Unsure” is cleaning out, and
this is her way of getting rid
of her “clutter.”

dence has meant to you over
the years. As a young adult, I
lived all over the world and
frequently wrote my friends
and family about my life and
what I was experiencing.
Over the last few years I have
received bundles from my
mother, my sister and a
friend — all letters they had
hung onto for 20 to 30 years.
What a surprise and a joy.
Reading these old cards and
letters gave me a window into
a world that no longer exists,
and reminded me of who I
was then and what my life
was like. Yes, please give
back the correspondence.

By HOLIDAY MATHIS
ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Your physical strength today will
be greater than that of yesterday.
You’ll love how this feels and
make efforts to keep the trend
going. The magic formula is:
more rest, less stress.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You’ll be exposed to the multilayered behavior of those with
an agenda. It may take days or
weeks to understand exactly
what’s going on here, so don’t be
too quick to make a move.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
Vibrant health is the goal, and
diet is the key. The first thing to
ask is: Is this food? Most definitions of “food” center on a nutritious substance. If it’s not nutritious, consider that it might not
really be food.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
Our command of space is what
makes others see us as either a
leader or a follower. Dare to take
up room and do what no one
else is doing. Move to your own
beat.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You
could be the savior for yourself
and for all of the others who are
in your boat. How do you do it?
Row, row, row. Only one person
has to row, but everyone will get
there.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If
you’re wondering why all of
these people are around you
now, it has something to do with
your big heart. It sends out signals, and you’ll be impressed by
who and how many respond.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).
It’s like you’re in a high-pressure
poker game deciding how to play
your cards. If you’re going to
pull this one off, there will have
to be some bluffing involved.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
The old ways are back, and
there’s a fresh hipness to customs like canning and backyard
chickens. You’ll find joy in an
activity that your great-greatgrandparents probably relished a
century or so ago.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). When you enter the
scene, everyone will wonder who
you are and what you do, so go
ahead and answer their questioning minds with the things you
think they should know about
you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19). You’ll feel like keeping the
outer world at bay so you can
concentrate on sorting through
your inner world. However,
you’re better off getting feedback. Too much time alone is
distorting.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18). As you daydream about
your next lifestyle evolution, you
start to realize what needs to
happen for the mental picture to
become reality. There are some
sacrifices to be made, and you’re
feeling ready to make them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
So much seems to be riding on
one decision. Actually, this is an
illusion. The truth of the matter
is that all roads lead to the same
juncture of destiny; therefore,
you cannot choose wrong. So
don’t agonize.
who gave them to me, I gave
them to the children who
were pictured in the photos.
Others I saved and presented
to the now-grown child’s
spouse as a wedding gift. So
far they have been wellreceived. Most people are
surprised to learn that I actually kept all these photos of
them or their children for so
long and appreciated the
effort I put into the scrapbooks.

Skin cancer awareness effort
coming to RI state beaches
NARRAGANSETT – Seeking to spread
the word on skin cancer prevention and
detection, U.S. Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.)
teamed up with the Rhode Island Department
of Health and the Comprehensive Cancer
Center at Rhode Island Hospital Monday to
launch the Sun Smarts campaign, which
offers free skin cancer screenings at local
beaches around the state throughout July and
August. The goal of the free screenings is to
help catch cases of skin cancer in their earliest, most treatable stages and educate the
public about effective sun protection.
Conducted in a private setting by board
certified dermatologists and dermatology residents affiliated with Lifespan Hospital, the
free skin cancer screenings include a visual
inspection of a patient’s skin by a medical
professional with no blood work required. A
typical screening takes about 15 minutes, and
officials hope to screen about 500 beachgoers.
Speaking from sunny Scarborough beach,
Senator Reed stated: “Skin cancer can be
deadly, but it is also preventable and early
detection is key. This is a quick and easy
way for people to get checked out and a good
reminder to properly use sunscreen and other
sun smart products that can help prevent sun
damage.”
The first come, first serve screenings will
be offered at Easton’s Beach in Newport;

CUMBERLAND – Scott Miller may never
have gotten into charity ultra-distance cycling
if not for a letter he received in the mail way
back in the late 1990s.
“It was from the Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society, and the letter asked me to get involved
in the event,” noted Miller, a 57-year-old business owner from Cumberland. “It said, 'We'll
train you to do a 100-mile ride, and you'll be a
member of a 'Team in Training.' That caught
my eye, so I looked into it.
“I was out of shape; I probably weighed 250
pounds, and I wanted to lose some weight,” he
added. “My friends thought I was crazy, that
I'd probably end up killing myself, but riding a
bike was something I always did for fun, so I
figured, 'Why not?'”
After a few months of working with his
teammates, they all traveled to the West Coast
to attempt to complete a 100-mile charity ride
around Lake Tahoe.
“The coaches really knew what they were
doing,” he stated. “Chris Tomsett and Pierce
Gasgon were ultra-riders who had done 750
miles in a four-day span, and the most I had
ever ridden in my life was 20.
“I definitely wasn't used to the altitude; I
thought I was going to explode,” he continued.
“I did some walking up a couple of huge hills,
but I finished it. It took me about nine hours,
and I was exhausted, but the feeling I got from
completing it was amazing.”

Victorious native of
Croatia stands 6-11!
By KEN POWTAK
Associated Press Writer
NEWPORT — Second-seeded Ivo Karlovic
of Croatia used his overpowering serve to beat
American Robby Ginepri 7-6 (2), 6-2 Monday in
the opening round of the Hall of Fame Tennis
Championships.
The 6-foot-11 Karlovic had 17 aces and only
two double-faults, winning 92 percent of his
first-serve points during breezy conditions on the
grass at Newport.
The tournament is held in conjunction with
the International Tennis Hall of Fame induction
ceremonies. On Saturday,
Lindsay Davenport heads a
class that includes coach
Nick Bollettieri, executive
Jane Brown Grimes and
broadcaster John Barrett in
the contributor category and
five-time Paralympic
medalist Chantal
Vandierendonck.

is the only
tournament in North
America held on grass courts.
Top-seeded John Isner is scheduled to play
Tuesday. He's looking for his third title in
Newport after winning in 2011-12.
The 35-year old Karlovic, a quarterfinalist in
Newport last year, had first serves clocked in the
118-123 mph range in windy conditions.
"You must always adjust with the toss, and I
was able to," he said.
After Karlovic went up 5-2 with his second
ace of the tiebreaker, Ginepri, a 2003 Newport
champion, hit a forehand return into the net and
followed with a backhand that sailed wide.
The 31st-ranked Karlovic broke serve in the
second and final games of the last set.
"It's always difficult on grass courts," he said.
"I was a little lucky on the tiebreak, and I was
able to return better and break him twice."
In other first-round play, 2009 Newport champion and American Rajeev Ram ousted
Australian Matthew Ebden, 6-2, 7-5. American
Donald Young, the No. 5 seed, was upset by
Samuel Groth of Australia 7-6 (7), 6-2.
"I've played here a lot of years," Ram said. "I
don't know if I remember it being this windy."
Sixth-seeded Steve Johnson needed only 47
minutes to top wild-card entry and fellow
American Clay Thompson 6-1, 6-2; Dudi Sela of
Israel beat Michal Przysiezny of Poland 6-1, 7-6

Cumberland American keeps up torid pace
en route to securing spot in District IV finals

SMITHFIELD — The Cumberland
American All-Stars came into this R.I.
Little League District IV Tournament winners’ bracket final with consecutive “mercyrule” triumphs over rival Cumberland
National and Burrillville.
In the latter tilt, skipper Dave Belisle’s
crew clobbered nine extra-base hits and 17
in all to deliver a 19-0 pasting, that following a 10-0 victory over CNLL.
The key question on Monday night was
this: Did Smithfield have enough offensive
firepower to outduel CALL?
For an inning, the answer was yes. After
that? Nope.
CALL erupted for 18 hits, seven for
extra bags and three over the fence, and
crushed the hosts, 11-3, before a hefty
crowd of perhaps 200 at Deerfield Park’s
DiNoble Field.
“Substitute” right fielder Mason Matos
finished 2-for-2 with a pair of blasts, while
Nick Croteau went 4-for-5 with two doubles, a dinger, an RBI and two runs scored;
clean-up hitter Tyler Provost 2-for-3 with
three RBI and two runs; collected first baseman Jayden Struble 4-for-4 with two stolen
bases and three runs; and eventual winning
pitcher Addison Kopack 2-for-4 with a twobagger and a pair of RBI.
C.J. Davock, Belisle’s capable shortstop,
chipped in a 1-for-4 outing with a walk and
a run; and Trey Bourque 2-for-4 with a
homer, two RBI and a run.
“We’ve got a lot of power – on the
bench and in the field,” Belisle shrugged
after CALL moved to 3-0 in the tournament, and now will await the losers’ bracket
champion. It will play at 5:30 p.m.,
Monday at a site still to be determined.
“We can bop it; we bop it in practice and
bop it in games,” he added. “Every practice
we have, we hit; I mean, we’re proud of our
defensive skills, but the kids have made the
commitment to come to practice every day
and challenge each other.
“Our forte (or motto) is ‘We practice
hard, very hard, then the games come easier.’ I’m so happy for Mason; he’s a big-mistake hitter. If someone’s going to put one
right down the middle, it’s out. I really
don’t claim him as a substitute, as I’ve got
12 guys who can hit, and hit for power.”

NBA
Celtics blown out in
Summer League action
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Marcus Smart didn't expect his
transition to the next level to happen overnight.
So after a second straight bumpy offensive outing for the
Celtics' rookie point guard at the Orlando Pro Summer League
on Monday, the No. 6 overall pick in last month's draft is trying
not to stress.
Smart started strong, before cooling to a 3-for-15, 11-point
performance in the Celtics' 96-77 loss to Indiana on Monday.
The effort came just two days after an equally disappointing 2for-8, 10-point effort in his rookie debut on Saturday.
"Shots didn't go down, that's just all it is," said Smart, who
also had four assists and two turnovers. "We're not really worried about that. We've got a lot of talented players on the offensive end and defensive end. Shots are going to fall. Some
nights shots aren't going to fall, and tonight was one of those
nights."
There was also an incident in the second half Monday when
Smart and Indiana's Dee Bost were told by a referee to stop
some brief verbal back-and-forth.
No fouls were called, but Smart said the incident was a
reminder that players may try to test him mentally this year following his suspension last season at Oklahoma State for shoving a fan.
"As a player, definitely that's going to stick with me for a
long time, the rest of my life," Smart said. "Wherever I go,
whoever I play, that's what they're going to know me as. But
that was just an incident that happened, that's not who I really
am.
“Of course they're going to try me. I expect that. I'm a good
player and I expect people to try to get me out of the game so it
can help them. It's a great tactic, but like I said, that doesn't
really faze me."
As far how Smart's game is evolving on the floor right now,
Celtics summer league coach Jay Larranaga said he hopes there
is frustration from all the players after Monday's poor outing.

Over the ensuing years, Miller went
on to complete two other 100-mile
endurance events for the society, one in
New Mexico, the other in Arizona. Soon
after, in 2000, he learned of the PanMass Challenge from some friends, and
decided with those rides for leukemia
behind him, he'd give it a shot.
Miller claimed he loved his initial
foray into the PMC; that's why he's currently gearing up for his 15th consecutive ride, slated for Saturday-Sunday,
Aug. 2-3.
He will be only one of over 5,800
cyclists from 36 states and five country
to participate, and all have the collective
goal of raising over $40 million to support adult and pediatric patient care and
cancer research at the Dana-Farber
Cancer Institute through the Jimmy
Fund.
For this particular ride, cyclists will
range in age from 13-90; some are seasoned tri-athletes, others just “weekend
warriors,” but most ride in honor or
memory of a family member or friend
either lost to, or being treated for, cancer.
All share a passion and desire to one day
find a cure for the disease.
The average rider trains for three
months, solicits approximately 40 sponsors and raises $6,500. There will be, as
in the past, doctors who ride with
patients; grandparents with children and
grandchildren; while others show support from the sidelines in the form of
donations, cheers, etc.
In fact, more than 300 cyclists are
cancer survivors or current patients in
remission. Since being founded by Billy
Starr in 1980, the PMC has raised more
than $414 million; and, last year alone, it
was Dana-Farber's largest single contributor, collecting more than 50 percent of
the Jimmy Fund's annual revenue.
“In my first one, I joined a team that
was riding for Dunkin' Donuts; it had
some employees who were participating
because they had relatives or friends
with cancer,” Miller explained. “Like I
said, I had ridden in longer rides, but the
Pan-Mass is a little different, in that it's a
longer course and a two-day event.
Instead of riding 100 miles in one day,
you're going 190 in two.
“I really wasn't nervous then, and I'm
not now,” he added. “I know what I
have to do now in terms of training
because I've done so many. Every year
around March, I start getting on my bike
and training again. I got out a little bit
this late winter, and I'd go 25 miles, and
your slowly boost your distance. I'll ride
50 miles on Saturday and 45 on
Sunday.”
Like he has most years, he'll partake

Karma, at next month’s Pan-Mass
Challenge.
in the most difficult phase of the PMC –
the 190-mile trek from Sturbridge to
Provincetown.
“We stop on Saturday at Mass.
Maritime in Bourne, then we go the final
80 or so miles into P-Town,” he said.
“The Cape is not flat; everyone thinks it
is, but it isn't. I usually leave (on the second day) at 5 a.m., and going over the
Bourne Bridge is a chore. That's a huge
hill in itself, a mile straight up, but the
downhill (section) is nice.
“Then we have a flat, seven-mile
stretch on the bike path before we move
onto an access road next to Route 6,” he
added. “There are rolling hills there, too.
It's tough, but it's so satisfying and exhilarating because of the people who come
out and line the roads to support you. It's
really unbelievable.
“One time, I rode with a friend of
mine, it was her first one, and she wanted to do it because she had lost her husband to cancer. We went from Wellesley
(a shorter distance) because she hadn't
done it before. I know we both had a lot
of fun, but we shared some tears as
well.”
Miller has plenty of superb reasons
for continuing his support of the PMC;
cancer has run rampant through his family. His grandmother died of breast cancer, and his mom is a 40-year survivor
of the same. His cousin, Rhoda, passed
away from a brain tumor when she was
only 13, while his dad developed
prostate cancer when he grew older.
“I'm sure there are other more distant
relatives who had it, but I don't know,”
he said. “I do know one of my best
friends from high school has breast cancer, but she's a survivor as well … My
cousin died in 1963 at 13, but if she had
the same brain tumor today, she'd probably be alive because of the advances in
research paid for by the money being
raised. There have been so many developments over the years.”
This year, he'll be riding with “TKK,”
an acronym for Team Kinetic Karma.
That contingent alone has gleaned, he
said, about $2 million over the years. As
for Miller himself, he has already raised
$4,300 of his $4,700 goal for this one
alone.
“We're riding for the same reason we
did at Dunkin' Donuts – cancer
research,” Miller offered. “We have a
pedal partner, a four-year-old girl named
Anna who's fighting cancer. I haven't
met her yet, but I know I will. I've seen
pictures of her, and she's a little darling.
We'll ride to help support her and her
family.”
He admitted there's another reason he
does it – the camaraderie between the
cyclists, the support vehicle drivers, volunteers and the thousands of fans who
line the streets to give their heroes water,
sliced oranges, sandwiches, etc. Most
importantly, they provide enthusiasm
and inspiration to those tired riders.
“Those people get your spirits up like
you wouldn't believe,” Miller noted.
“They're so great with their signs and
cheers; they'll have water hoses to spray
you and cool you off, it's just phenomenal. There's one section in Wrentham,

World Cup
Put on alert
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil (AP) —
Germany coach Joachim Loew is worried about Brazil's "brutal" tackling in
recent games, and appealed to the referee
of their World Cup semifinal to be on the
lookout for such tactics.
Germany and Brazil play Tuesday in
Belo Horizonte, with Mexican referee
Marco Rodriguez in charge of the match.
Loew was one of many observers
who took note of the bruising quarterfinal between Brazil and Colombia, and
said that tackling by both sides was often
"brutal and almost over the limit."
"My hope, or what I expect, is that the
referee Rodriguez keeps an eye on these
things," Loew said. "In Europe there
would not be 22 players on the pitch at
the end. There were many hard fouls
from behind, from the side. You have to
see that this brutal and robust physical
side is stopped because then you won't
have a Neymar, Messi ... but other players who destroy the game."
Neymar, Brazil's biggest star, fractured a vertebra late in that game after
taking a knee in the back, an injury that
ruled him out of the rest of the World
Cup.
Loew began the news conference by
once again expressing regret that Neymar
will miss the match. Brazil captain and
defender Thiago Silva is also out because
of a suspension.
Loew warns about Brazil
fouls ahead of semifinal
"A top player missing means other
layers will take responsibility and I am
sure they will play for Neymar and for
Thiago," Loew said. "No one should
think that Neymar's absence or Thiago
Silva's is a disadvantage, with Dante
playing you can't expect him to play
badly, especially against Germany."
Center back Dante, who is expected
to replace Silva, plays for Bayern
Munich and is a teammate of many
Germany players.
Loew said Brazil was sure to take
commitment, passion and emotion and
the "backing of 200 million" into the
semifinal, but that Germany should not
adjust to its opponent and will try to play
its own game. "We are confident and if
we manage to play to our abilities, our
hopes of reaching the final are not all that
bad," Loew said.
Loew said that all 22 players remaining in his squad are fit and ready to play.
Defender Shkodran Mustafi is out with a
leg muscle injury.
Loew said Brazil was the favorite
despite the absence of top stars.
"Such semifinals are a special occasion, the fight of the two continents, two
European teams against two South
American teams," he said.
In the other semifinal on Wednesday,
Argentina plays the Netherlands in Sao
Paulo.
Germany, a three-time champion, is
playing in its fourth straight semifinal
and hoping to reach its first final since
2002, when it lost to Brazil in the only
previous World Cup match the two
nations have played.
FIFA: All doping samples
clean at World Cup
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — FIFA
says all samples have tested clean in its
World Cup anti-doping program, though
no unannounced controls have been
made in Brazil. FIFA's chief medical
officer Jiri Dvorak says analysis of all
pre-competition and post-match samples
was completed through the first quarterfinal match last Friday.
All 736 players have given blood
samples for their individual biological
passport. Two players from each team
are randomly picked to give samples
after each match.
Dvorak says no doping controls were
taken on days between matches.
He says all samples "arrived in good
condition" at the World Anti-Doping
Agency-accredited laboratory in
Lausanne, Switzerland, where samples
are tested. WADA revoked the Rio de
Janeiro lab's credentials last year.
No player has tested positive at a
World Cup since Argentina great Diego
Maradona in 1994.
NASCAR
Pulling the plug on Daytona was the right call
By The Associated Press
When the sky opened for a third time
during the rain-rescheduled race at
Daytona, and teams pulled out car covers
to wait out the weather, it seemed the right
time for NASCAR to put the Coke Zero
400 out of its misery.
The entire weekend was plagued by
rain. Cars never got near the track for the
scheduled Saturday start. When the race
finally did begin Sunday — delayed,
because of rain on the pace laps — it went
a whopping six laps before the cars went
back to pit road for another 25-minute
delay. Then, the on-track carnage: a 16car crash seconds before a scheduled
competition caution, and a 26-car crash
before another shower. A total of six drivers managed to avoid accidents, leaving
just 17 cars on the lead lap.
It would have been comedic if it wasn't
such a disastrous day for one of the
biggest events on the NASCAR schedule.
So pulling the plug seemed like such a
logical decision when the track was
soaked through shortly before 3 p.m.
Drivers — especially those who were
lined up behind winner Aric Almirola
when the race was called with 48 laps
remaining — thought otherwise.
"We looked at forecasts and the potential of a few more hours of rain, we decided we were past halfway and just called
the race," NASCAR vice president of
competition Robin Pemberton said.

THE TIMES B3
ALL ON THE
LINE AGAINST
A FAMILIAR FOE
With her teammates looking on from the
dugout, Cumberland I’s Kaitlyn D’Abrosca
connects for a single during the top
of the first inning of the June 25
District IV playoff contest against North
Smithfield/Woonsocket. For the second
time in the state tournament that is taking place in Westerly, Cumberland will
battle Warwick West Side Tuesday night
in a losers’ bracket contest that begins
at 5:30 p.m. When Cumberland and
Warwick met on the tournament’s first
day last Saturday, Warwick emerged with
a 4-3 walk-off victory. Tuesday’s winner
will advance to the finals against
Cranston National, which is in the driver’s
seat after completing the round-robin
portion of the states with a 2-0 record.

CALL one win away from District IV crown
Continued from page B1
Kopack helped himself on the hill, yielding just three hits, three runs (all unearned)
and five walks while fanning a half dozen; he
earned the win.
As for fellow righthander Zach Semerjian,
he surrendered 11 hits, eight runs (six earned)
and two freebies while striking out a quartet
in an 86-pitch, four-frame outing.
To simplify the tournament up to this
point: The victors of the Lincoln-Burrillville
and Woonsocket-Cumberland National clashes will face off on Wednesday evening (neither site has been solidified), and the winner
of that will take on Smithfield (2-1 in D-IV
action) on Friday night.
The one still standing will face Smithfield
on Friday night at 5:30, but no one knows
where.
In the top of the first, Cumberland
American jumped out to a 3-0 advantage
against righty starter Zach Semerjian after
Croteau crushed a double to the right-center
hole. Davock then walked, and Struble drilled
a hit to left. Dave Belisle, the third-base
coach, gave Croteau the “halt” signal, but left
fielder Nick Casinelli overthrew the cutoff
man. It then bounced over catcher Danny
Smith’s head and Croteau scored with ease.
Provost’s bouncer to first plated Davock,
while Kopack’s rope hit to center scored
Struble, all with just one out.
Sean Meers then popped out to short, and
Justin Tedeschi caught Kopack napping off
first for the double play.
Undaunted, Smithfield answered with
three of their own in the back half. Kopack
walked both Tedeschi and Zach Collins
before Smith grounded to shortstop Davock,
who hustled to second for the putout but airmailed his toss to first. That allowed Tedeschi
to hustle home.
With two down, Casinelli walked,
Semerjian rapped an opposite-field ground
single down the right-field line to plate pinchrunner Nick Capalbo and Josh Lehane
knocked a hit to left to bring in Casinelli.
CALL responded with two more in the
third after Struble beat out an infield hit,
robbed second and, without breaking stride,
raced to third when no one covered second
for Smith’s “throw-down.”
Provost scored him with a single to center;
he stole second, took third on Trey
Thibeault’s groundout and trotted in on
Bourque’s gap liner to left-center.
It looked like Smithfield would get at least
a run back in the back half when, after a solid
twin killing instigated by Davock, Kopack
walked Casinelli and Capalbo. Joey Pitrone,
however, grounded out to first, thanks to a
nifty stop by Struble.
Matos led off the fourth with a 0-2 blast
off the centerfield scoreboard, and – after two
quick outs – Belisle’s bunch supplied a
patented two-out flurry.
Struble singled to left, stole second and
sprinted home on Provost’s two-bagger to the
right-center hole, and Kopack drilled another
double that one-hopped the same fence to
bring in Provost.
That cushioned the CALL lead to 8-3.
It notched another trifecta in the fifth off of
reliever Tedeschi after Bourque crushed a
dinger to right-center, and Matos walloped
another just to the right of the scoreboard.
Immediately after, Croteau ripped a “tater” to
left-center. Davock and Struble later singled
and Provost walked to load the bags, though
Kopack flew out to short and Thibeault lined
hard to left to end the surge.
Casinelli did lead the sixth with a terrific
single to right, but Croteau mustered three
quick outs to end it.
“We came out well with three runs, then
they answered,” Belisle noted afterward. “It
was too early to worry, though I was a little
concerned with Addison’s location. He hadn’t
pitched in a week, but he battled through it,
settled himself down against a good-hitting
team.
“Now we have to sit back and wait for
those other teams,” he added. “We’re just
going to head back to practice.”

Judge approves concussion settlement 767-8540, 767-8643 or 767-8545 or
email sports@pawtuckettimes.com
NFL
By The Associated Press
A federal judge on Monday
granted preliminary approval
to a landmark deal that would
compensate thousands of former NFL players for concussion-related claims.
The ruling by U.S. District
Judge Anita Brody in
Philadelphia came about two
weeks after the NFL agreed to
remove a $675 million cap on
damages. Brody had previously questioned whether that
would be enough money to
pay all claims.
"A class action settlement
that offers prompt relief is
superior to the likely alternative — years of expensive, difficult, and uncertain litigation,
with no assurance of recovery,
while retired players' physical
and mental conditions continue to deteriorate," Brody
wrote.
More than 4,500 former
players have filed suit, some
accusing the league of fraud
for its handling of concussions. They include former
Dallas Cowboys running back
Tony Dorsett and Super Bowlwinning Chicago Bears quarterback Jim McMahon, who
suffers from dementia.
The settlement is designed
to last at least 65 years and
give $1 million or more to
retirees who develop Lou
Gehrig's disease and other profound neurological problems.
"This is an extraordinary
settlement for retired NFL
players and their families —
from those who suffer with
neuro-cognitive illnesses
today, to those who are currently healthy but fear they
may develop symptoms
decades into the future," plaintiffs' attorneys Sol Weiss and
Christopher Seeger said in a
statement.
NFL senior vice president
Anastasia Danias said in a
statement that the league was
"grateful to Judge Brody for
her guidance and her thoughtful analysis of the issues as
reflected in the comprehensive
opinion she issued today."
The original settlement
included $675 million for
compensatory claims for players with neurological symptoms, $75 million for baseline
testing and $10 million for
medical research and education.
The NFL would also pay
an additional $112 million to
the players' lawyers, for a total
payout of more than $870 million.
The revised settlement
eliminates the cap on overall
damage claims but retains a
payout formula for individual
retirees that considers their age
and illness.
A young retiree with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or
Lou Gehrig's disease, would
receive $5 million, a 50-yearold with Alzheimer's disease
would get $1.6 million and an
80-year-old with early dementia would get $25,000.
Even with the cap
removed, both sides said they
believe the NFL will spend no
more than about $675 million
on damage claims by ex-players.
Critics of the deal have
said the league, with annual
revenues approaching $10 billion, was getting off lightly.
They could raise objections at
a fairness hearing scheduled
for Nov. 19, and ultimately
opt out of the settlement.

TOUR DE FRANCE
LONDON (AP) — A brief look at Monday's third stage of the 101st Tour de
France:
Stage: The last in Britain this year, it took the riders on a 155-kilometer (96mile) flat trek from Cambridge to London. It featured a spectacular finish
on The Mall.
Winner: Marcel Kittel, who outsprinted Peter Sagan and Mark Renshaw
in front of Buckingham Palace to claim his second stage win in three days,
his sixth overall at the Tour.
Yellow Jersey: Vincenzo Nibali. The former Vuelta and Giro winner
retained his 2-second lead over main rivals Alberto Contador and Chris
Froome in the general classification.
Quote of the day: "This was one of the fastest sprints I've ever done" —
Kittel.
Stat of the day: 65. In seconds, the time lost by 2010 champion Andy
Schleck after he was involved in a high-speed crash. After three days of
racing, Schleck is already lagging 2 minutes, 24 seconds behind in the
overall standings.
Tuesday's stage: Stage 4 —After three nervous days in Britain, the bunch
will enjoy a relatively easy 163.5-kilometer (101.5-mile) ride from Le
Touquet to Lille in northern France. Another one for the sprinters.
Seager selected
to replace injured
Encarnacion on
A.L. All-Star roster
SEATTLE (AP) — With diapers in one arm and his young
son in the other, Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager
got the phone call Monday he was hoping to get a day earlier.
Seager was selected to replace injured Toronto first baseman Edwin Encarnacion on the American League's roster for
next week's All-Star game.
Encarnacion, who has 26 home runs and 70 RBIs, was put
on the 15-day disabled list Monday because of a strained right
quadriceps. Encarnacion was injured in Saturday's game
against Oakland.
Seager said he was just walking out of Babies"R''Us with
his wife and son when he noticed manager Lloyd McClendon
calling.
"I put the diapers down and answered the phone," Seager
said. "It worked out pretty good."
Seager becomes the third Seattle player selected for the July
15 game at Target Field in Minneapolis. The 26-year-old
Seager, a first-time All-Star, entered Monday with a .274 average, 13 homers, 59 RBIs and 21 doubles. But those numbers
came after a miserable first three weeks of the season that had
Seager sitting at .156 with no homers and four RBIs through
the first 19 games.
In the 66 games since, Seager is hitting .304 with 57 RBIs
and a .914 on base plus slugging.
"The validation is just playing better and helping the team
win. This stuff right here this is just ... it's hard to describe,"
Seager said. "It's just something that's pretty cool and I'm really, really happy about, obviously."
Seager will join teammates Felix Hernandez and second
baseman Robinson Cano playing for the American League. It's
the second time since 2004 Seattle has seen more than two
players get selected for the All-Star game. Seager's brother,
Corey, was also selected for Sunday's All-Star Futures Game, a
showcase for minor league talent.
"I've played with Felix a couple of years now and gotten to
know Cano pretty good here. To go with a couple of guys that
you know will be good," Seager said.
Jeter recalls memorable moments in Cleveland
CLEVELAND (AP) — Derek Jeter's memories of playing
in Cleveland include his first major league home run, a swarm
of midges and three tough playoff series against the Indians.
"I like this stadium, I've always liked coming here to play,"
Jeter said Monday before the opener of his final regular-season
series in Cleveland. "The fans have always been great."
The New York Yankees shortstop's first full season in the
big leagues began a day late, thanks to a rare April Fool's Day
snowstorm in Cleveland in 1996. He hit the first of his 258
homers a day later, on April 2. The 21-year-old rookie sent a
1-0 pitch from Dennis Martinez to left field in the fifth inning
of the Yankees' 7-1 win.
"It was a long time ago, but it was my first opening day,"
said Jeter, who appeared in 15 games late in the 1995 season.
"First opening day is pretty memorable, it's pretty special. I
was excited for that, we had gotten snowed out the day before.
So I had to wait a while, seemed like I had to wait forever. I
was fortunate to hit that first one here."
The Indians plan on giving Jeter a gift before the final game
of the series Thursday.
The Yankees won the World Series that season, but lost to
the Indians in five games in the Division Series in 1997. New
York defeated Cleveland in six games in the 1998 American
League Championship on its way to another World Series
title.The Indians beat the Yankees in four games in the 2007
playoffs.
