mother of seven from
Waterville has fulfilled a
nearly two-decade old dream
by skydiving.
Marjorie Bell leaped out
of an airplane and with the
help of a tandem skydiver
floated 10,000 feet to the
ground on Mother's Day, one
day after her birthday.
Bell tells the Morning
Sentinel that she "never felt
so free."
She was accompanied on
the jump by several family

As a neighbor looks on, Karen Moreino, a cousin of stabbing victim Shelina Moreino,
places a plant at the shrine that was set up in the yard of the Valley Street apartment
house where the crime occurred. Moreino's estranged husband, Robert Bethea, has been
charged with domestic murder, which occurred in the early morning hours of

CENTRAL FALLS — Four tenants at
149 Valley St. were sitting outside in
Monday's sunshine, but they had heavy
hearts knowing that their neighbor,
Shelina Moreino, was not among them.
The 41-year-old mother was found
stabbed to death inside her apartment
early Sunday morning, allegedly at the
hands of her estranged husband, Robert
Bethea, 45, was taken into custody on
Sunday morning after Central Falls Police
found him in the second-floor apartment
that he had shared with his wife until sev-

arraigned in District Court in Providence
on Monday on a charge of domestic mur-

Attorney General Martha
Coakley called Monday
for a change in state
campaign finance law
that would require super
PACs disclose their
donors and expenditures
more frequently.
Under current state
regulations, the super
PACs aren't required to
reveal their donors until
about a week before the
September primary.
Super PACs can raise
and spend unlimited
amounts of money but
must operate independ-
ently of a candidate's
official campaign.
Coakley, who is also a
Democratic candidate for
governor, wrote in a let-
ter to Massachusetts law-
makers Monday that
super PACs should meet
the same reporting
requirements imposed on
ballot question commit-
tees, which must file
twice monthly. Like
super PACs, ballot ques-
tion committees can also
raise unlimited sums
from donors.
"Voters are entitled to
know who is supporting
or opposing a candidate.
This simple change will
make that possible,"
Coakley wrote.
The Office of
Campaign and Political
Finance has recommend-
ed that super PACs vol-
untarily disclose their
donors on a more regular
basis. Current regulations
require them to file an
independent expenditure
report within seven busi-
ness days of spending a
sum of money — on a
television ad, for exam-
ple — that supports the
election or defeat of a
Although super PACs
aren't required to identify
their donors until the

have urged they instead

they file their independ-
ent expenditure reports.

called for legislation
requiring the swift
reporting of donors to
super PACs.

real-time disclosure of

tisements," said the

The second in a series of
public outreach meetings to

a plan to guide future devel-

The state requires cities
and towns to adopt a new
comprehensive plan every

plans serve several purpos-
es. They are the primary

conservation and develop-

they serve to address the

City Council is charged

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — After
more than two years of competition,
the last resort-casino proposal
remaining for western Massachusetts
is in Springfield, a former manufac-
turing hub where an $800 million
project straddling its downtown and
South End neighborhoods represents
the city's biggest economic develop-
ment undertaking in a generation.
The proposal by MGM Resorts
International, which owns the
Mirage, Bellagio, MGM Grand and
other casinos, was approved by city
voters last July and has advanced
farther than four others in the race
for the state's sole western region
casino license. Plans by Penn

"If casinos are going to come, I'd
rather see them come to Springfield,"
said David Glantz, who owns a Main
Street smoke shop a block from the
proposed casino site and across from
a vacant lot where an office building
had to be razed after the tornado. "I'd
like to see this city get back to what
it used to be, with economically
viable people willing to spend
money every day."
The gambling commission, creat-
ed by the state's 2011 casino law,
will award licenses to at least three
casino projects in Massachusetts. It
has already granted Penn National
Gaming the sole slot parlor license
for a project at the Plainridge harness
race track in Plainville.

The stock market returned
to record levels on Monday
as investors regained their
appetite for riskier stocks.
After beating down
Internet and small compa-
nies for two months,
investors decided that those
stocks had fallen enough.
Among the big gainers were
Twitter and Facebook,
which had plunged in
March and April. The
Russell 2000, an index
made up of small compa-
nies, climbed the most in
two months.
Investors have been more
cautious this year than last.
They've favored big, less
volatile stocks that pay rich
dividends because of con-
cerns about the outlook for
the economy. Utility and
energy companies have
been among the beneficiar-
ies of this trend, and have
outperformed the overall
market in 2014.
While interest rates
remain low, investors will
likely keep getting drawn
back into stocks after any
sell-off because holding
cash isn't generating any
returns, said Tim Courtney,
chief investment officer at
Exencial, an independent
wealth management compa-
"There is some bargain
buying in some of the
names that got hit hard in
March and April," said
On Monday, the Standard
& Poor's 500 index rose
18.17 points, or 1 percent,
to finish at an all-time high
of 1,896.65. The index last
closed at a record high on
April 2, when it reached
The Dow Jones industrial
average gained 112.13
points, or 0.7 percent, to
end at 16,695.47 Monday.
The Dow's previous record
high was 16,583.34 on
The Nasdaq climbed
71.99 points, or 1.8 percent,
to 4,143.86.
The Russell 2000 index
rose 26.4 points, or 2.4 per-
cent, to 1,133.65, its biggest
gain since March 4. The
index had slumped almost
10 percent from March 4 to
May 9 as investors sold
riskier stocks. The index
still remains down 2.6 per-
cent for the year after surg-
ing 37 percent in 2013.
Gains on Monday were
led by technology and
industrial companies, sec-
tors that are expected to
benefit most if the economy
starts growing faster.
Facebook rose $2.59, or
4.5 percent, to $59.83,
reducing the stock's decline
since March 10 to 17 per-
cent. Twitter, another stock
that has been beaten down
recently, rose $1.89, or 5.9
percent, to $33.94.
Stocks also got a boost
from some merger news.
Pinnacle Foods surged
$4.02, or 13.2 percent, to
$34.47 after the company
agreed to be acquired by
Hillshire Brands. Pinnacle's
brands include Duncan
Hines and Aunt Jemima,
while Hillshire makes
Jimmy Dean and Sara Lee
products. Hillshire fell
$1.19, or 3.2 percent, to
Even though stocks have
largely moved sideways for
most of the year following a
surge in 2013, investors are
still more concerned about
missing the next leg of a
rally than a market fall, said
Doug Cote, chief market
strategist, Voya Investment
In government bond trad-
ing, prices fell. The yield on
the 10-year Treasury note
climbed to 2.66 percent
from 2.63 percent on Friday.
Bond yields started
falling at the start of the
year as an unusually harsh
winter put the brakes on the
U.S. economy. They have
continued to fall even as
reports show the economy is
strengthening again.
"There are a number of
mysteries out there in the
market," said Gerry Paul,
chief investment officer of
U.S. value equities at
AllianceBernstein. "To me,
one of the biggest is why
the 10-year Treasury is trad-
ing where it is."

The public outreach
meetings – there are four in
total – are being held in
each of the city’s four City
Council wards. The first
meeting hosted by Assistant
Mayor and Ward 3
Councilor Thomas A. Rose,
Jr. was held Monday. The
second meeting hosted by
Councilwoman Christine A.
Rossi representing Ward 4
will be held Wednesday
from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the
Riverside Library, 475
Bullocks Point Avenue,
The series continues on
Monday, May 19, with a
meeting hosted by
Councilman Helder J.
Cunha, Ward 2, at the Santa
Maria Club, 846 Broadway;
followed by a meeting host-
ed by Mayor James A.
Briden, Ward 1, on
Thursday, May 22 at the
Myron Francis School, 64
Bourne Avenue, Rumford.
Both of those sessions
will also be held from 6:30
to 8 p.m.
At-Large Councilwoman
Tracy A. Capabianco is also
participating in this process.
According to city offi-
cials, the public meetings
are intended to give resi-
dents and business owners
an informal setting to dis-
cuss their area of the city
with City Council members
and the city’s planning staff.
Planning Department
Director Jeanne M. Boyle
said public input on the
comprehensive plan is vital
in establishing long-term
goals related to quality of
life issues, and setting a
course for the city’s future.
“Significant taxpayer
money is being saved by
preparing the plan in-
house,” Boyle said. “Public
participation is very impor-
tant because the city’s vision
expressed in the plan in such
areas as land use, economic
development, circulation,
housing, and recreation will
shape the city for years to
There will be other public
outreach efforts related to
the comprehensive plan
throughout the remainder of
the year, including drop-in

in addition to her 8-year-old
daughter, Pearl, had spent
some time in Philadelphia
before moving to Central
“It's so sad. I came to pay
my respects,” Moreino said,
as she placed a plant at the
shrine. “It's tradition.” She
said she hadn't talked to
Shelina in awhile, but wasn't
aware that she was in a
troubled relationship with
Bethea, who was Pearl's
father. “I posted a bunch of
pictures on my FaceBook
page of her and me, and her
with Pearl. She looked
happy,” she said.
Several neighbors, who
didn't want their names
used, said that the couple
had lived at the Valley
Street multi-unit apartment
house with their daughter
for the past three or four
years. A male tenant said he
had heard the young girl
screaming on Sunday morn-
ing, and then saw police
lead her out, as well as
Bethea, in handcuffs, but he
didn't know what had led to
the stabbing.
“She was very friendly.
Everybody knew her around
here,” the man said. “And
him. They seemed happy.
They would be out here,
barbequing, doing family
things.” He added, “I don't
know what could have hap-
pened for him to do some-
thing like that. He must
have just snapped.”
The man said that he felt
sorry for the couple's daugh-
ter, who likely witnessed the
deadly assault and would be
traumatized from it. “I don't
know how he could do
something like that in front
of his daughter,” he stated.
He said family members
had been coming by to
leave flowers in a shrine set
up in a shopping cart in the
side yard, and that he had
added a blue plastic tarp as
covering “to keep the
flames going” in the votive
A female tenant said the
couple had lived at the
apartment house as long as
she had, about three or four
years. While she had known
them to “argue a little,” she
said it was nothing that
seemed out of the ordinary
or violent. She described
Shelina Moreino as “friend-
ly and nice,” and said
Bethea seemed “nice
enough.” “It's so sad. It's
shocking that could hap-
pen,” she stated.
Kempe confirmed what
Special Assistant District
Attorney Amy Dodge told
the court at Monday's
arraignment: that Central
Falls police had received a
911 call from a male who
had told them he had
stabbed his wife. When the
officers arrived at the apart-
ment, they found Moreino
with multiple stab wounds.
No motive was given for
the fatal stabbing. However,
authorities said Moreino had
obtained a no-contact order
against her husband after he
allegedly assaulted her in
In response to Shelina
Moreino's death, a joint
statement was released by
Linda Impagliazzo, execu-
tive director of the
Blackstone Valley Advocacy
Center, and Deborah
DeBare, executive director
of the Rhode Island
Coalition Against Domestic
Violence. “Shelina's death is
a grievous reminder that
domestic violence is perpe-
trated every day in Rhode
Island behind closed doors
by abusers seeking to con-
trol their partners. It is
important to realize that this
crime was not an isolated
incident but the final abu-
sive act in a pattern of vio-
lent behaviors.”
“Domestic violence can
escalate quickly, which is
why bystanders who are
close to these situations,
including community mem-
bers and loved ones, must
take all warning signs seri-
ously. No level of violence
is tolerable.
No abusive environment
is safe. In most cases, no
one expects the violence
that they may have over-
heard, witnessed or even
experienced to escalate to
the point of homicide, but
domestic murders continue
to occur in Rhode Island
each year.”
“As relatives, friends,
coworkers, classmates and
neighbors, we must be able
to understand and identify
the signs of abuse and know
how to intervene so that we
can keep victims safe and
prevent another tragedy.”

Wilmot said not only is
it important to voters to

fair to those candidates
who are the subject of
attack ads and have no idea
who's coming after them."
Coakley made the rec-
ommendation in the middle
of an increasingly con-
tentious Democratic pri-
mary contest for governor.
According to state cam-
paign finance records, a
least six super PACs have
been created in
Massachusetts since the
beginning of the year.
One, the National
Association of Government

Expenditure PAC, began
running a 30-second televi-
sion ad last month criticiz-
ing the salary that
Republican candidate for
governor Charlie Baker
earned while chief execu-
tive of the state's second-
largest insurer, Harvard
Pilgrim Health Care.
Coakley disavowed that
ad, arguing that super PAC
money should be kept out
of Massachusetts.
A second PAC has listed
supporting Democratic
candidate for governor
Steven Grossman's cam-
paign as its main goal.
Grossman is state treasurer.
A third super PAC has list-
ed a longtime Republican
political operative as its
Other Democrats run-
ning for governor include

official Juliette Kayyem,

The new casino could
also bolster Springfield
city government, which
had been on the verge of
bankruptcy in 2003 and
emerged from state control
in 2009. Under its host
community agreement,
MGM will pay Springfield
$15 million in up-front and
advance payments and
another $25 million annu-
ally once the casino opens.
The casino has also
reached agreements with
eight other surrounding
communities totaling about
$2 million upfront and
about $1.5 million annual-
Still, not all area resi-
dents are convinced of the
casino's economic poten-
Al Cabot, who helped
lead the successful cam-
paign to defeat Hard
Rock's casino proposal in
neighboring West
Springfield, suggests the
casino would draw largely
from western
Massachusetts's poor and
working class residents.
"I don't know of an
example in the country
where an urban environ-
ment has been revitalized
by the introduction of a
casino," Cabot said. "There
are four casinos in Detroit.
But Detroit doesn't seem to
be prospering."
Cabot and other anti-
casino advocates are seek-
ing a November ballot ref-
erendum asking voters if
they want to repeal the
state' casino law altogether
and effectively scuttle proj-
ects like MGM's. The deci-
sion now rests with the
state's supreme court.
Some downtown busi-
nesses are also anxious
about their future.
"We have to relocate
whether we want to or not,
but we've been totally
blind as to what's really
going on," said Kenneth
Elsner, who owns O-Mi
Oriental Grocery, which is
among a dozen or so
downtown businesses that
would have to be relocated
— likely with compensa-
tion — to make way for
the casino project. "The
situation has really tied our
hands. You can't run a
business this way."

Blackstone Academy hopes race highlights diversity
Blackstone Academy students
learned Slater Park was unavailable
for their annual “Born to Run” race,
they decided to take it to the streets.
Now, the hope is that the event will
not only push the value of healthy
exercise, but also showcase the
diversity of runners.
On Sunday, May 18, at 10 a.m.,
Blackstone Academy Charter School
will hold its third annual “Born to
Run” 5K run/walk road race and a
one-mile Family Fun Run. Children
and adults of all ages and abilities
are encouraged to participate.
The idea for the road race came
about from students taking a “Born
to Run” class at Blackstone
Academy that is based on the book
of the same name by Christopher
McDougall. The book tells the story
of an Indian group, the Tarahumara
of Mexico, who have for centuries
been able to run hundreds of miles
without injury and maintain excel-
lent health. The book has helped
strengthen barefoot and trail running
movements internationally and has
inspired many people of all ages to
become runners.
Rafael Perez, a senior from
Pawtucket, said the interdisciplinary
class is co-taught by English teacher
Paul Healy and biology teacher John
Horton. The class involves the stu-
dents reading and doing homework
from McDougall’s book, combined
with actual fitness exercises and
Perez said that for the past two
years, the “Born to Run” race events
have been held on the last Sunday of
April in Slater Park. However, the
park was booked solid on that date
this year, so the students came up
with the alternative plan of having
the event start at the Blackstone
Academy, 334 Pleasant St. The
course will take runners through the
Oak Hill neighborhood, along the
Blackstone River and into down-
town Pawtucket.
“We realized that the whole thing
makes more sense this way,” said
Perez. “It's not just about getting in
shape. It showcases what we can do
as a school...create changes,” he
said. Noting that in most of the local
5K races he sees, the runners are
predominantly white, he said he
thinks this event will help promote
diversity based on the school’s cul-
ture and makeup. “We want to pro-
mote the benefits of running to as
much of the community as we can,”
he said.
Blackstone Academy Executive
Director Carolyn Sheehan agreed,
saying that having the student-led
event centered around the school
and its surrounding neighborhood
will make it more “community-
“This is a unique event and we
will get a real cross-section of run-
ners,” she said.
Typically, the race and walk
attract about 125 participants,
including about three-quarters of the
student body, family and friends,
faculty, and corporate sponsors. This
year’s sponsors include the Barton
and Gilman law firm, Pawtucket
Credit Union, and Clean Tech.
Proceeds from the event will benefit
health and wellness activities at the
T-shirts will be available to the
first 100 participants. and prizes will
be offered at the end of the race.
The fee is $10 for students and $20
for adults, with some financial help
available. To sign up for the race,
visit or
call the school at 401-726-1750, ext.

Bragging about what they’ve achieved is
what incumbent politicians do.
Ronald Reagan brought morning to
America. Nelson Rockefeller, running for
his fourth term as governor of New York in
1970, had a snappy slogan: “He’s done a
lot. He’ll do more.”
British Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan told
voters in the late ’50s
they “never had it so
But as Democrats
struggle to hang on to the
Senate this year (and try
against the odds to take
over the House), they are
not in the usual boasting
Some of the party’s candidates actively
praise the Affordable Care Act, but others
talk more about how they would fix it. Most
Democrats hailed this month’s excellent
jobs numbers, but much of their message
this year stresses a squeezed middle class
and the problems of stagnating wages and
economic inequality. “You’ve never had it
so good” is not in their talking points.
More than anyone, President Obama can
expound on how much better things are now
than they were when the economy was near
collapse in 2009. But a campaign speech he
offered at a Democratic fundraiser last week
in La Jolla, Calif., nicely captured the
party’s two-track argument.
Yes, he began by accentuating the posi-
tive. “When I came into office, the
American economy was in a freefall that
people don’t still fully appreciate,” Obama
said. “And by most measures, what we’ve
accomplished together as a country over the
last five years has been significant: 9.2 mil-
lion new jobs, an auto industry that has
come roaring back, a financial system that’s
stabilized, trillions of dollars of wealth
recovered and restored because housing
came back and people’s 401 pensions
bounced back.”
It’s a lot of good news. But note that
word “significant.” It’s less buoyant than,
say, “fantastic” or “wonderful.” The under-
statement reflected what Obama said a
moment later: “What we also know is that
the American public is anxious.”
The president listed the many sources of
that anxiety, concluding with a central
Democratic theme: that “for a couple of
decades now, even when we’re growing,
even when corporate profits are soaring,
incomes, wages have not gone up.” For
“ordinary Americans,” he said, the improve-
ment “hasn’t translated into greater financial
Obama’s be-happy-but-worry theme is
justified by the facts, but it leads to a pecu-
liar imbalance in the campaign dialogue.
Republicans rail against everything Obama
has done. Their agenda may look like a cat-
alog of Fox News obsessions — last month
it was Obamacare, currently it’s Benghazi.
But they will not stop blaming Obama and
his party for all the country’s shortcomings.
Democrats, by contrast, feel constrained
from offering an unambiguously sunny
The long-term stall in middle-class
incomes Obama described is one reason
they can’t. Most Democrats also have a
philosophical commitment to reducing
inequalities. They may hold the White
House but they are not championing the sta-
tus quo.
The party’s candidates fear that if they
are too upbeat, they’ll look out of touch
with a country whose spirits aren’t very
high. The RealClearPolitics polling averages
show that over the last month, only 28 per-
cent of Americans saw the country as being
on the right track; 63 percent said it was
moving in the wrong direction.
“It’s not a contradiction, but there is a
tension between the administration wanting
to argue for success on health care and the
economy and House and Senate candidates
who want to identify with the many voters
who are still struggling in the economy,”
said Anna Greenberg, a Democratic pollster
with many clients on the ballot this fall.
“And many of the independent expenditure
groups will be talking about the Koch broth-
ers and other big-money groups on the right
who are tilting Washington against the inter-
ests of average people.”
A lot of this Democratic advertising will
be directed at Republicans who control the
House and have blocking power in the
Senate. Placing the burden for Washington’s
failures on Republicans and their big fun-
ders is a necessary element of any
Democratic campaign. It will be especially
persuasive on an issue like the minimum
wage. But this is not the same as making a
positive case that could ease the electorate’s
overall alienation.
Reality is what reality is, and it will take
many more months of growth to change the
country’s disposition. But even as
Democrats respond to widespread discon-
tent, they also need to convince Americans
that Obama’s tenure gives them a good deal
to cheer about. Doing both at once is more
challenging than incessantly repeating the
word “Benghazi.”

The Democrats’
strategic ambiguity
E.J. Dionne
Answer today’s online poll question at
With political indicators and historical
cycles in their favor, Republicans are push-
ing the envelope to further energize their
base with a full assault on the head of the
Parties that don't control the White
House invariably gain in midterm elec-
tions. But the anti-Clinton drive energized
Democrats. That year, Republicans failed
to gain congressional seats in a midterm
for the first time since 1934 and for the
first time in a president's second term since
In 2014, the Republicans risk a smaller-
scale fiasco with the creation of a special
committee to investigate the 2012 tragedy
in Benghazi, Libya, where four Americans,
including the U.S. ambassador, were killed.
House Republicans see this as a political
two-fer: an attack on President Barack
Obama and on the Democrats' presumptive
2016 nominee, Hillary Clinton, who was
secretary of state during the attack. This
strategy is aimed at exciting the party's
base and raising campaign cash.
Republican leaders say the purpose of
the inquiry is to prove the administration
initially tried to protect Obama in the mid-
dle of his re-election campaign by falsely
claiming that the attack was a spontaneous
reaction to an anti-Muslim video and not a
carefully planned act of terrorism.
Republicans also aim to prove that the
military response was inadequate and that
there was a cover-up. They have seized on
the White House's failure to turn over a
September 2012 memo from National
Security Adviser Ben Rhodes that contains
talking points on the tragedy. Rep. Trey
Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican
who was tapped to chair the special com-
mittee created after the House Oversight
panel embarrassed the party with clumsy
theatrics, has called the inquiry "a trial."
The administration inflicted some of this
pain on itself. The White House did try to
spin the incident initially to protect the
president, and the Rhodes document —
routine fare — should have been turned
over. But the real lesson of Benghazi is
how dangerous the aftermath of the over-
throw of a foreign dictator can be. After
Iraq and Afghanistan, that's not a favorite
Republican topic.
Furthermore, the details of Benghazi
have been aired repeatedly, with more than
a dozen congressional hearings, several
committee reports, scores of interviews and
25,000 pages of documents turned over. A
credible commission headed by respected
diplomat Tom Pickering and Admiral Mike
Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, faulted the State
Department for "systemic failures" and
"management deficiencies" in protecting
American outposts. It just didn't provide
the evidence of lies and cover-ups
Republicans wanted.
Mullen and other military leaders say it
wouldn't have been possible to send U.S.
forces to Benghazi to save the ambassador.
Gowdy, who in winning his congressional
seat four years ago was a staunch supporter
of the Iraq War, questions those assertions.
A comprehensive post-mortem of the
tragedy by The New York Times, including
eyewitness testimony, concluded that
although there were warning signs before
the attack, it wasn't, as some Republicans
charge, directed by groups sympathetic to
al-Qaida and there had been a spontaneous
response to the video.
Some Republicans worry that with vot-
ers focusing on other issues, this inquiry
could boomerang.
"There's not much there or it's too com-
plicated," says veteran strategist Ed
Rollins. Even South Carolina Sen. Lindsey
Graham, R, a vehement critic of Obama on
Benghazi, worries that Republicans will
get "burned" if they are seen as playing
partisan politics.
A superb analysis by Washington jour-
nalist Michael Hirsh, for Politico maga-
zine, details the flimsiness of the most seri-
ous Benghazi charges. There's "little evi-
dence that Clinton or anyone else in the
Administration engaged in a cover-up."
The Republican goal, he writes, is to make
the attacks on Hillary Clinton a refresher
on what she would face in 2016, making
her more reluctant to run.
Rehashing or embellishing the Benghazi
tragedy by beating up on Clinton might
affect her and voter enthusiasm this fall.
Rather than aiding Republicans, however,
it may bolster her resolve and standing
with voters and energize Democrats' inter-
est in the fall campaigns. Remember 1998.
I'm reading The Call on the front page
about United Health Care wanting to drop
Landmark Medical Center and their doc-
tors. I think it's disgusting for a large
insurance company such as United to do
this. I am on Medicare and United Health
Care is my supplement through AARP. It's
a total cost of $245.00 a month with no
dental or prescription benefits.
I am lucky I am healthy and take care
of myself. I am semi-retired and work
part-time to supplement my Social
Security. When I was in my 30s I had a
number of surgeries at Fogarty and
Woonsocket Hospital before they merged.
I had the best care in Rhode Island. My
doctors were wonderful. I did not have to
go to Providence or elsewhere.
It bothers me that United Health Care
wants to drop Landmark and their doctors.
I live in Burrillville and Landmark is more
convenient for me. I prefer to go to doctors
my family and friends go to for my health
issues. I hope this issue is resolved
because I want to drop United as my
provider if I do not have a choice of my
doctors and hospital. I will change to a
health insurance company that will accept
Landmark and my doctors.
September 2014 is coming up and many
of my friends will change also, some of
them already have.

Benghazi investigation may
backfire on Republicans
By Albert R. Hunt
Letter to the Editor
United Health should not dump Landmark
The following editorial appeared in
Monday's edition of The Yomiuri
Securing enough pilots has emerged as
an important issue for airlines, particularly
low-cost carriers (LCCs), which have
grown drastically in recent years by offer-
ing cheaper fares than those of major air-
line companies.
It is essential for airlines to increase the
number of flights and routes to better cater
to the needs of passengers, but they must
give top priority to securing the safety of
flight operations and come up with meas-
ures to that end.
Peach Aviation, a domestic LCC, has
decided to cancel more than 2,000 sched-
uled flights from May through October in
the worst-case scenario, an unprecedented
number of cancellations.
As for the reason for the cuts, Peach
cited its failure to hire as many pilots as it
needed and an increasing number of pilots
who are taking leaves of absence because
of illness or injury. The airline, therefore,
failed to secure a sufficient number of
pilots for its operations.
Peach increased its flights and routes at
a fast pace after its inauguration two years
ago, a move that many say led to sloppi-
ness in running the company.
Recently, there was a serious problem in
its flight operations. On April 28, a Peach
airliner nosedived abnormally to as low as
75 meters above sea level just before land-
ing at Naha Airport.
The Japan Transport Safety Board, natu-
rally, started investigations into the inci-
dent as a "serious case" as it could have led
to an accident.
The captain of the flight, an Argentine
national in his 40s, possibly misheard what
a traffic controller told him.
Peach should conduct a thorough inves-
tigation to determine if there were prob-
lems in the health of crew members or in
its operations.
Peach's in-house regulations stipulate
that airplanes must be grounded for inspec-
tions and other reasons if there are prob-
lems, such as in the latest incident. In spite
of this, the aircraft in question flew on to
Kansai International Airport after landing
at Naha. It is problematic if the company's
safety regulations were not observed.
Peach should educate its employees to fol-
low the rules to the letter and make an all-
out effort to prevent a recurrence of such
an incident.
Other LCCs also should take measures
to ensure they have sufficient pilots and
that there are no operational problems.
Together, more than 15 LCCs operating
from Japanese airports have more than a 6
percent share of the domestic market.
Competition is expected to intensify fur-
ther among carriers serving domestic air-

House Oversight Committee
from getting to the bottom
of that financial fiasco, any
more than anonymous per-
sonal threats to her will,
Rep. Karen MacBeth (D-
Dist. 52, Cumberland), the
panel’s chairwoman, said
“I was raised by a
Marine, I don’t back down
to threats,” MacBeth told
The Times after news broke
that the Wall Street rating
agency had downgraded the
$75 million in 38 Studios
instruments from A to BBB
and put them, along with all
of the state’s other outstand-
ing bonds, on what it calls
a credit watch with “nega-
tive implications.”
If the General Assembly
decides not to pay off on
the so-called “moral obliga-
tion” bonds, S&P warned,
Rhode Island’s ratings
would likely plummet by
“multiple notches.”
Lower bond ratings make
future borrowing more
expensive by increasing the
interest rate the state must
pay on its debt.
Late last week, the
Chafee administration
released a report that pre-
dicted just that response.
Authored by SJ Advisors,
the report cautioned that if
the state decided to not pay
the bonds, “the rating
agency reaction will be
swift and severe: that the
state’s bonds will be
reduced to non-investment
grade (so-called “junk
bonds”) – and that there
will be a material and
adverse effect on both the
interest rates that the state
pays when it issues debt and
the market value of out-
standing Rhode Island
The House of
Representatives and its
Finance Committee will
hear a presentation by SJ
Advisors later today.
MacBeth said S&P’s
action, “doesn’t have any
effect on me right now. It’s
just that, a threat. I think
I’ve had enough threats
recently. My committee’s
responsibility is to take the
information, whether to pay
it or not pay it, present our
findings and go from there.
“The last time we took a
vote on this issue last year,”
she recalled, “suddenly,
right before it was time to
do the vote,” the ratings
agencies issued similar
“The bond raters can do
one thing, but it is the
state’s biggest bondholders,
they know what the worth
of our state is, they under-
stand what went on with
this. It is a unique situation
and they understand that we
pay our bonds. It is the
bond buyers, the bondhold-
ers that will truly answer
the question of how much
this is going to impact us.”
Gov. Lincoln Chafee
vehemently opposed the 38
Studios loan guarantee deal,
but once the agreement to
guarantee the bonds for Red
Sox pitcher Curt Schilling’s
now-bankrupt video game
company was made, he has
insisted that the payments
must be made.
The current candidates
for governor split down
party lines on the issue.
Republicans Ken Block and
Allan Fung oppose the pay-
ments which, with interest,
will cost the state more than
$100 million.
On Monday Clay Pell
joined fellow Democrats
Gina Raimondo and Angel
Taveras in saying the state
should make good on the
Meanwhile, at least three
of the people the Oversight
Committee invited to testify
on the history and details of
the deal – Schilling as wells
as Keith Stokes and J.
Michael Saul, both former
top officials of the R.I.
Economic Development
Corp. (now CommerceRI),
which granted the loan
guarantees, have formally
declined to do so.
MacBeth and other mem-
bers of the committee have
said they will seek to sub-
poena witnesses who do not
appear voluntarily.
Cumberland resident
Brian Kelly, who managed
MacBeth’s state representa-
tive campaign, has chal-
lenged new House Speaker
Nicholas Mattiello to also
appear before the oversight
panel. In a letter last week,
Kelly wrote to Mattiello
that, “The citizens deserve
to know what you knew on
this issue and when you
knew it.
“As it begins to appear
that more individuals will
decline the invitation to
appear before the commit-
tee,” Kelly, a former mem-
ber of the Pawtucket School
Committee added, “I
believe it is imperative that
you demonstrate the leader-
ship that the citizens of
Rhode Island deserve and
expect from an individual
serving in the capacity as
Speaker. Your voluntary
appearance before the com-
mittee will get the ball
rolling on an issue that is of
significant concern across
the state.”
Mattiello responded to
Kelly with a letter of his
own that said, “I have no
knowledge of the facts lead-
ing up to the awarding of
$75 million to 38 Studios. I
had absolutely no involve-
ment in any discussions
leading up to the passage of
a bill later in the 2010 ses-
sion that authorized the Job
Creation Guaranty Program
for the Economic
Development Corporation.
Like almost all the members
of the House, I believed that
this $125 million program
was going to be used by the
EDC to attract a wide range
of many companies that
could provide badly-needed
jobs for Rhode Islanders.
“At no time was I ever
informed that $75 million
was going to be considered
by the EDC to be awarded
to one company,” the
Speaker said. “I was never
aware of 38 Studios’ inter-
est in this money, and was
not part of any discussions
that may have been held on
this issue.
MacBeth said she sees
no need at this time for
Mattiello to testify.
“I think the Speaker has
been clear that he knew
nothing about this,” she
said. “He wasn’t the
Speaker at the time.
MacBeth confirmed that
the State Police are investi-
gating anonymous letters
addressed to her and Rep.
Michael Chippendale (R-
Dist. 40, Foster, Coventry,
Glocester), also an
Oversight Committee mem-
ber, threatening their safety
if they continue digging into
the 38 Studios matter.

As a licensed psychothera-
pist who has worked with both
victims and perpetrators of sex-
ual abuse over the past 25
years, I would like to respond
to “Stunned in the City” (Jan.
22), who found her co-worker’s
name on a website for regis-
tered sex offenders.
Registered sex offenders
have been convicted and incar-
cerated for their crimes as well
as serving a probationary peri-
od upon release. However,
unlike other criminal offenses,
they never finish “serving their
time” — both in the areas of
WHERE they can live and
HOW they can live (employ-
ment). They continue to serve
a sentence that can never be
completed and are stigmatized
for the rest of their lives.
The reason for this is
because of a “one-size-fits-all”
approach to punishment, be it
a one-time offender or a serial
rapist. Most sexual abusers are
either members of the family or
a close family friend, and most
are never reported. Only a
small percentage of registered
offenders pose a danger and
should be under surveillance.
The others should be allowed a
second chance to continue
with their lives without undue
If “Stunned” reports her co-
worker to her employer, she
will jeopardize his livelihood,
which he needs to redeem his
DEAR A.P.H.D.: I received
mail from mental health profes-
sionals, employers, parents and
people who are on the sex
offenders’ list regarding
“Stunned’s” letter. All of them
stated that the range of crimes
that can add someone to the
list is very broad. The list is no
more than a STARTING point
for people to begin their own
research into public records
before telling an employer or
another person. Read on:
For more than 20 years I
have employed a man who is a
convicted sex offender. He paid
his debt to society for having
sex with a minor when he was
in his 20s. It will haunt him for
the rest of his life.
The pictures you see online
are recent because the authori-
ties require updated photos
yearly. I empathize with him
because I dated a 15-year-old
when I was 19 — with her par-
ents’ approval — but today it
could mean jail time and a
ruined life.
There is no demarcation
between being dumb and being
truly criminal, so everyone is
labeled the same. I suggest that
we all stay aware of those
labeled sexual predators, but
approach the sexual offenders
Inclusion on the registry
can be the result of something
that would not pose a danger to
anyone — urinating in public,
or having sex with a younger
girlfriend when you yourself
are a minor.
If you see a neighbor or co-
worker on such a list, no one
should jump to conclusions
before doing more research
about the actual offense. It may
be nothing to worry about at
all, or it might be something to
react to. But you won’t know
until you find out more than a
simple listing.
After breakfast on
Saturdays, my husband and I
settle in, listen to music and
read the newspaper. It’s our
Saturday morning ritual.
As part of it, when I get to
your column, I read it out loud
to my husband. We enjoy the
letters and your advice. When I
finish, my husband almost
invariably says, “You know,
those letters are made up.”
Abby, I think they are real,
albeit edited, but genuine. He
thinks they’re fake. Who’s
You are. I could never make up
anything as interesting as the
mail that arrives from my read-
ers day after day.

AMUSEMENTS Tuesday, May 13, 2014 THE TIMES A7
National Women’s Health
Week (May 11-17) has
arrived, time to offer a
refresher or new tip to help
women live healthier lives.
Experts from The Women's
Medicine Collaborative
recently shed light on some
common medical myths and
misconceptions in an effort
to help women be well.
“Medical myths abound,
whether it’s through the
pages upon pages of infor-
mation accessible through
the internet or through well-
meaning friends and fami-
ly," says Iris Tong, MD,
FACP, director of women’s
primary care at the Women’s
Medicine Collaborative.
“However, these myths
often lead to treatments that
are ineffective at best and at
times dangerous.”
Common medical myths
• Myth 1 — Antibiotics
treat infections like sinus
infections, pink eye and
This is not always true,
explains Tong. In more than
90 percent of cases, it is a
virus that causes these infec-
tions and viruses cannot be
treated with antibiotics.
Taking antibiotics when
they are not needed can
cause nausea/vomiting/diar-
rhea, yeast infections, aller-
gic reactions, interactions
with other medications,
C.difficile infection, tendon
rupture and sudden cardiac
death. “People should also
remember that taking unnec-
essary antibiotics can lead to
drug resistance, making
antibiotics ineffective when
they are truly needed,” she
• Myth 2 — An MRI is
the best test for back pain
The reality, according to
Tong, is that most people
who develop back pain
recover in about four to six
weeks, meaning tests are
usually not needed for those
first four to six weeks of
symptoms. However, you
should seek an evaluation if
your back pain is accompa-
nied by fever, is unrelenting
at night or hurts while at
rest, if it is combined with
numbness or weakness in
your legs, or if you have a
loss of bowel or bladder
Tong says she usually
recommends the following
for patients suffering from
back pain: ice or heat as
preferred, NSAIDS such as
aspirin or ibuprofen or
Tylenol, muscle relaxants or
pain medication for the first
few days, maintain routine
activity if possible, but stop
exercise or activity that
worsens symptoms, and
physical therapy.
• Myth 3 — The flu shot
gave me the flu
The flu shot cannot cause
the flu, says Tong. “Flu
shots are either made with
flu vaccine viruses that have
been ‘inactivated,’ meaning
they are not infectious or
they are made with no flu
vaccine viruses at all.” But
that doesn’t mean there
aren’t side effects. Some of
the most common are sore-
ness, redness, tenderness or
swelling at the site of the
Sometimes, those who
receive the flu shot also
experience a low-grade
fever, headache and muscle
Misconceptions about
women's care
• Myth 1 — Men die of
heart disease, women die of
breast cancer
The leading cause of
death for women is heart
disease. which causes one in
three deaths in women each
year. “The key,” says Tong,
“is awareness. Women need
to realize that heart disease
is more deadly than all
forms of cancer combined.”
Tong notes that women
can take important steps to
help reduce their risk of
heart disease. These include:
knowing your blood pres-
sure, cholesterol and blood
sugar numbers; quitting
smoking (more than 30 per-
cent of first heart attacks are
caused by smoking); and
taking baby aspirin, which
can prevent a stroke in
women of all ages.
• Myth 2 — I need to
lose 50 pounds to be at a
healthier weight
What women need to
focus on is what their body
mass index (BMI) is, which
helps establish the parame-
ters as to whether someone
is a normal weight, over-
weight, obese or morbidly
obese. “Women should not
be focused on the number of
pounds they think they need
to lose,” says Tong.
“Instead, they should focus
on their BMI as it takes into
account their weight, but
also, their height.” Losing
five to 10 percent of your
body weight significantly
decreases health risks.
• Myth 3 — Midwives
only care for pregnant
Midwives care for
women throughout their
lifespan, from the teenage
years through menopause,
says Maureen Morrow,
CNM, MSN, MPH, a certi-
fied nurse midwife with Ob-
Gyn Associates, a Women’s
Medicine Collaborative
partner. Midwives are a
great choice for everything
from annual gynecologic
exams to contraceptive
counseling, family planning
and insertion of intrauterine
Midwives deliver approx-
imately 12 percent of all
babies born vaginally in the
U.S. In addition, they care
for women of all ages who
present for a wide variety of
reasons outside of the
maternity cycle. In fact,
while well known for
attending births, 53.3 per-
cent of certified nurse-mid-
wives (CNMs) and certified
midwives (CMs) identify
reproductive care and 33.1
percent identify primary
care as main responsibilities
in their full-time positions -
and certified nurse-mid-
wives are licensed, inde-
pendent health care
providers with prescriptive
authority in all 50 states.
• Myth 4 —Midwives
only assist with natural, in-
home childbirth
“Midwives work closely
with pregnant women
throughout the pregnancy to
give them personalized one-
on-one care,” says Morrow,
“whether that’s directing
them to sign up for child-
birth classes or encouraging
them to prepare for breast-
Midwives also work with
women who choose epidural
anesthesia by supporting
them in early labor and
assisting them with the tim-
ing of the epidural.
Morrow advises that
women schedule a pre-con-
ception visit before having a
baby to assess the woman's
“whole health” picture and
discuss healthy habits for a
healthy pregnancy, such as
achieving a healthy weight
and having optimal nutrition
before conceiving.
“We are all about plan-
ning,” Morrow says. “We
are trying to educate women
so they can get the best pos-
sible care and be the best
they can be.”

Honoring the pillars
of Pawtucket sports
PAWTUCKET – One cannot quantify
with simple words what John Scanlon and
Ray McGee mean to this city’s public school
athletic programs.
So given recent developments, two coach-
es – one from Tolman and the other from
Shea – feel that it’s time to begin a new tra-
dition to preserve the legacies of these two
dedicated and beloved athletic directors.
Following the final out of Tuesday’s
Division II baseball game between the Tigers
and Raiders at McCoy Stadium, the first-ever
awarding of the “McGee/Scanlon Trophy”
will be made to the winning team.
“It’s going to be informal, but I think it’s
cool to have their names attached to some-
thing,” said Theo Murray, the head baseball
coach and assistant football coach at Tolman,
which is Scanlon’s jurisdiction.
Added Dino Campopiano, who as one of
McGee’s charges at Shea is the head coach
of the football and baseball teams, “Athletics
in the city don’t run without these two guys.
There are really no words to explain it.”
With Scanlon retiring at the end of the
school year and McGee on the fence about
whether he wants to follow suit, the idea of
creating a meaningful honor with plenty of
staying power was a no-brainer. Remember,
we’re talking about a pair who have been
strongly linked with Pawtucket sports and for
several decades.
“These two guys are legends in the city.
Anyone who grew up in the 1960s to the
present knows these two names. They are

Sports editor emeritus
t. Raphael Academy isn’t
unbeaten this season without
good reason. The Saints
combine excellent defense
and stellar pitching, mixing in
enough offense to keep them atop
the Division II-West standings with
a 14-0 record.
“Our pitching and defense got us
where we are,” head coach Ron
Labree said after the Saints rolled to
an 8-1 victory over Middletown on
Monday afternoon at Hank Soar
Park. Junior pitcher Kaylee
Sylvestre allowed an infield single
with two outs in the seventh inning
that ended her bid for a no-hitter.
The Saints pounded out 14 hits
with Sylvestre and cleanup hitter
Hayley Microulis each collecting
three base knocks. Microulis and
No. 5 hitter Lauren Taylor belted
consecutive triples in the third
inning to build an early 4-0 lead and
then the Saints put the game away
with four runs in the sixth.
The real suspense came in the
top of the seventh inning with
Sylvestre needing three outs for a
no-hitter. The right-hander induced
a quick pop fly to second base for
the first out. The next batter,
Cassandra Krue, hit a pop fly 10
feet down the first base line.
Sylvestre and catcher Haley
Mitsmenn couldn’t decide on who
would catch the ball and it went off
Mitsmenn’s glove for an error.
Middletown’s cleanup hitter,
Jordan Draper, then belted a hard
smash at shortstop Microulis. The
ball bounced off her glove for
another error.
Sylvestre, showing great compo-
sure, then got a fly ball out, putting
her within one out of a no-hitter.

and drilled a hot shot to third base

CUMBERLAND – Nick Jarrett
admitted he blew his own mind at the
Northern Division Track & Field
Championships at Tucker Field on balmy
Monday afternoon.
Minutes after the Lincoln High sopho-
more completed the 300-meter intermedi-
ate hurdles with a best-ever clocking of
43.7, which gave him a most unanticipat-
ed individual crown, he admitted, “Oh,
yeah, I’m surprised! I mean, this is only
my second year (doing the hurdles). I
don’t remember what I did last year, but I
know I didn’t place.
“I’m guessing my time was around 48-
49 seconds, but it was my freshman year,
so it was very intimidating,” he added. “I
don’t know how I did it, but I’m sure glad
I did. I think I’ve just been practicing
“My coach (John Menna) prepared me
for the longer race by setting up hurdles
for a 110-meter run. They would be at dif-
ferent distances, not the usual ones for the
race at 110. He said that way we could
gage where the hurdles would be.
“In the 300, our step counts are differ-
ent between each hurdle than in the 110;
that’s why he’d move them, so you had to
concentrate on not only your technique
with those scattered hurdles, but also our
speed. You also have to get a good start
because you want to be in front, then let
the legs release.”

CHS’s Lambrou wins

PAWTUCKET – Tolman High’s
options to overturn the one-year playoff
ban saddled to its football program have
been completely exhausted.
At a meeting that took place Monday
night in the school’s library before an esti-
mated gathering of 20 concerned players
and parents, an additional course of action
to repel what the Rhode Island Principals’
Committee on Athletics ruled this past
January was discussed. The general theme
of the roughly 30-minute meeting was that
if the Tigers are going to enter the season
with postseason aspirations, it’s up to the
people who feel that they have been
accused of wrongdoing to mobilize their
efforts and apply pressure on city officials
and school personnel.
“It’s in your hands,” stated Vernia
Carter, a concerned mentor who has had
several dealings with Tolman captains
Mohamed Keita, Prince Johnson and
Bryan Arroyo. The trio of current juniors
stood before the group with Keita doing
most of the talking.
Athletic Director John Scanlon
explained why the football squad is in the
predicament its in after a parent of an
incoming Tolman student asked for clarifi-
cation. Last Nov. 15 at Pariseau Field, an
on-field skirmish marred the conclusion of
Tolman’s 54-0 non-league victory over
The incident, which by all accounts
was resolved in quick fashion, was
deemed volatile enough to warrant harshly
punitive discipline. After learning shortly

THE TIMES, Tuesday, May 13, 2014 — B1
Continued from page B1
While Jarrett’s triumph
stunned some, the same ol’
names came to the fore on
Monday, and most of the vic-
tors (and points) came from
Head coach Tom
Kenwood isn’t quite sure, but
he believes this to be the
Clippers’ sixth straight title,
one easily snared with 175
points, exactly 100 better
than runner-up Lincoln.
Woonsocket took third with
70, while Mount St. Charles
took fourth with 57.
Without question, a main-
stay race for the victors hap-
pened to be the 1,500 meters,
when senior Alex Southiere,
sophomore Will Mardo and
junior James Haupt swept the
event. Southiere won with a
near-PR of 4:18.9, while
Mardo took second (4:23.6)
and Haupt third (4:31.3).
“My best ever is 4:18-
something, I forget,”
Southiere stated afterward.
“The time’s alright, but I
wanted to go under 4:18.
Still, it’s hot out here, so I’ll
take it. I’m happy with the
win, and my goal now is just
to improve. Going 4:15
would be great, and I think
that’s within my grasp.”
Offered Mardo: “That’s
my best time by two or three
seconds, so I’m excited
about it. I just wanted to stay
with Alex because I know he
goes out pretty hard. I felt a
little stiff at the beginning,
probably because I didn’t
stretch as much as I should
have. I’m still thrilled,
Other key wins for CHS
came from senior Jason
Lambrou, who garnered the
long jump (20-10 ¾) and the
triple jump (42-5 ½).
“He won the triple jump,
and that was his PR by at
least a foot and a half,”
Kenwood stated. “I thought
Alex’s time in the 1,500 was
right on, and (sophomore)
Sean Laverty cruised through
the 3,000. That was another
important event for us.”
Woonsocket senior stand-
out Connor Fugere snatched
the shot put (47-7 ½) and the
hammer (202-3), but placed a
somewhat surprising second
in the discus (126-5) and
javelin (147-6).
Lions’ senior Stefan
Balestra took the discus with
a heave of 130-3, and team-
mate Joe Taylor outdueled
Fugere in the javelin (156-2).
Balestra added a runner-
up finish in the hammer with
a solid toss of 180-1.
“My first throw was 167-
9, and my third was 175-7;
my PR is 179 feet, so I’m
ecstatic I’m that close,”
Balestra said after the semifi-
nals. “I know I have more in
me, so I’m going to try to
throw my best in the finals.”
He did, besting his previ-
ous lifetime heave by over a
MSC senior tri-captain
Anthony Pasquarelli
would’ve liked to have
eclipsed the high jump height
he leaped a season ago while
reigning, but seemed satis-
fied with his triumphant 6-0.
“I was happy with (the
height),” he stated. “I won it
last year, and I just wanted to
do it again. I wanted to
repeat at 6-2, but I didn’t
quite get there.”
Pasquarelli also placed
third in the long jump, and
helped the 4 x 100 relay
(also consisting of Ben
Weiss, Trevor Roberge and
Chris Miele) to a third in
Other victors for the
Clippers included David
Agudelo in the 800
(2:05.70); Jordan Zerva in
the pole vault (12-0); and the
4 x 800 relay (8:40.80).

synonymous with Tolman
and Shea and both have their
connections between both
schools,” Murray pointed
out. “Ray was the football
and hockey coach at Tolman
for the longest time and John
was the basketball coach at
This token of appreciation
came about as the result of a
conversation between
Murray and Campopiano
during a recent gathering of
Division II baseball coaches.
Once the business of select-
ing the participants for the
12th grade and underclass-
men all-star games was com-
plete, the attention shifted to
McGee and Scanlon and how
to appropriately honor them.
As currently situated,
Tolman and Shea are in the
same baseball division, with
the guarantee of two regular-
season meetings. With
realignment on the horizon
and whispers about the cre-
ation of a third division,
there’s a chance that the
Tigers and Raiders could be
scaled back to one get-
together on the diamond for
the next two years.
If Tolman and Shea end
up in different divisions,
Murray plans to line up a
non-leaguer with the hopes
of having McCoy Stadium as
the backdrop.
“Every year, we’ll desig-
nate one of the games as the
McGee/Scanlon game,”
Murray stated.
You would be hard-
pressed to attend a Tolman
or Shea sporting event and
not run into McGee and
Scanlon. Both would have
been locks to attend
Tuesday’s baseball game, yet
Scanlon had an inkling that
something was up when
Murray informed him to
make sure that he and
McGee would be present.
Then came last week
when the trophy appeared in
Scanlon’s office, which is
when Murray’s friendly hint
made total sense.
“It’s nice to be appreciat-
ed and we do appreciate
what they’re doing,” said
Scanlon, who decided as far
back as last June that the
2013-14 school term would
mark his final one as the
overseer of the Tolman ath-
letic department. “I smelled
something, but I didn’t real-
ize that they were going to
have a trophy.”
Scanlon was the one who
broke the news to his good
pal at Shea.
“That’s fantastic and
great. I appreciate it and I
know John does too,”
McGee relayed.
Looking strictly at their
careers as athletic directors,
the joint work Scanlon and
McGee put forth in solidify-
ing Tolman and Shea as
Thanksgiving football rivals
might go down as their
greatest accomplishment.
Last November marked the
12th all-time holiday meet-
ing between the neighboring
public high schools.
“The best way they han-
dled that was making sure
that everyone was set,” said
Campopiano, whose Raiders
used to meet Lincoln on
Turkey Day while Tolman
had a long-standing engage-
ment with St. Raphael.
“They took care of the city
schools, but they did it in a
business-like manner.
Everything about them is
class act.”
What’s on tap Tuesday at
McCoy not only helps to
legitimize the creation of the
Tigers and Raiders as
Thanksgiving partners, but
also on several other fronts
as well. To the two coaches
who were instrumental in
creating something that pays
homage to two longtime pil-
lars of Pawtucket athletes,
there is nothing more fitting
that having McGee’s and
Scanlon’s names fixed to
something lasting.
“All I need to know is that
every once in a while, we’re
reminded about how good
these guys have been to all
the coaches and athletic pro-
grams at both schools,” said
Murray. “They give us plenty
of freedom, but they also
have our backs.”
Echoed Campopiano,
“Even with the financial
times the way they are, they
make sure to give our stu-
dent-athletes everything pos-
sible. Our kids don’t go with-
out as far as equipment, uni-
forms … everything. Without
those two, there would be no
athletics as it stands today.”

that went off Alexis Vieira’s left
shin. All hands were safe and the
bases were loaded. The official
scorer ruled a third error in the
inning, keeping the no-hitter alive.
Finally, it came down to
Middletown’s Lauren Sullivan, who
hit a grounder that Vieira snagged
cleanly two steps to her left. Vieira
reached with her glove to try and
tag the base runner coming over
from second base. The umpire ruled
a missed tag and again all base-run-
ners were safe. One runner scored
to ruin the shutout, too.
Sylvestre then struck out
Amanda Hassan to end the game. It
was her seventh strikeout against no
walks. Uncharacteristically, the
Saints made four errors in the field,
three in the final inning with the no-
hitter perhaps tensing up the play-
“We don’t really care about that
(the no-hitter),” Ron Labree said.
“We’re just playing them one game
at a time right now. We have four
games left in our regular season. We

playoffs begin. That’s what we did
last year. We got hot at the right
time and made it into the Division
II finals before losing to North
The Saints, who beat
Middletown on the road by a 13-3
margin last month, scored three runs
in the first inning on Monday.
Sylvestre led off with a single.
Kamryn Labree and Microulis fol-
lowed with one-out singles to fill
the bases for Lauren Taylor, who
accepted a walk to force in
Sylvestre from third base. Vieira
singled to make it 2-0 and
Mitsmenn walked for a 3-0 lead
before Ashley Simmons lined into a
double play at third base.
Microulis and Taylor hit their
back-to-back triples in the third
inning. That was the only offense
for either side until the sixth when
Mitsmen led off with a single. Mary
Mennucci singled with one out and
then Sylvestre added her third hit of
the game to load the bases.
With two outs, Labree hit a
catchable fly ball to left field that
was dropped as two runs scored.
Microulis followed with her two-
run single to complete the Saints’

no shot at the playoffs in
2014, Tolman opted to appeal
and was granted a chance to
state its case before the
Principal Christopher
Savastano spoke on behalf of
Tolman. The Principals’
Committee voted unanimous-
ly (15-0) to deny the appeal.
In the months that have fol-
lowed, Tolman has tried to see
if there’s a way to make the
RIIL overturn what was
decreed. Agroup went before
the ACLU, but they were
informed that the case was too
time consuming.
John Gagnon, father of
Tolman football player Nate
Gagnon, also spoke before the
gathering Monday. The elder
Gagnon talked about the
inroads he made during a
recent City Council meeting
when two councilmen came
up to him after he got up and
Gagnon told the room that
two councilmen are pushing
for the school department to
do something. He also said
that the only way for Tolman
to show the Interscholastic
League just how serious of a
step its prepared to take is to
get the superintendent to acti-
vate the lawyer that the school
department has on retainer.
“You won’t do anything
unless the superintendent is on
board,” noted Gagnon.
“She wants what’s best for
the students,” cited Carter
about Interim Superintendent
Patti DiCenso.
The three Tolman players
encouraged their gridiron
brethren to leave no stone
unturned in its pursuit of pro-
moting its crusade, especially
when it comes to getting one’s
parents or legal guardians to
realize that a simple call to a
high-ranking official could go
a long way in dissolving the
playoff ban.
“I think most of us felt we
were getting a tough deal. We
felt let down,” expressed
Keita. “We’re doing our best
to get the parents involved.
That’s our initial target right
now. The school has done
everything within its power so
it’s up to us as captains to
make sure we’re being heard.”

Brown’s grand slam home run
in a five-run fifth inning high-
lighted Pawtucket’s 15-hit
attack and the PawSox held
off a late Louisville rally for a
9-8 win over the Bats in a
Monday matinee at Louisville
Slugger Field to take three out
of four in the series.
Pawtucket won its third
consecutive road series and
improved to 11-5 away from
McCoy Stadium this season.
The game featured 27 com-
bined hits (16 for Louisville)
including 14 that went for
extra-bases (three home runs,
ten doubles and a triple.)
The PawSox built a 9-3 lead
after six times at bat only to
see Louisville (16-21) score
the final five runs in the con-
test. Closer Alex Wilson
ended the game by inducing a
groundout by Bryan Anderson
with the tying and winning
runs on base.
Brown’s homer was his sec-
ond in as many days and fifth
in his last 13 games played.
Brandon Snyder (6) also
homered for the PawSox (23-
16), who matched a season
high with nine runs scored.
Snyder, Ryan Roberts, Alex
Hassan and Ryan Lavarnway
each had three of the team’s
15 hits.
With the score tied 2-2
through four innings,
Pawtucket took the lead for
good in the fifth when
Lavarnway singled home
Roberts and knocked
Louisville starter David
Holmberg (0-4) from the
game. Reliever Chad Rogers
recorded two quick outs but
then walked Garin Cecchini to
load the bases.
Brown followed with a no-
doubt shot to right, the third
grand slam home run for the
PawSox this season. Brown
had homered in similar fash-
ion on Sunday in the ninth
inning to drive home the win-
ning run in that contest.
Pawtucket added two more
against Rogers in the sixth on
RBI hits by Hassan (double)
and Lavarnway (single) to
make the score 9-3.
Brandon Workman (2-1)
struggled through five plus
innings but earned his second
victory of the season despite
allowing ten hits and four
runs. The Bats scored single
runs in the fifth, sixth and sev-
enth innings, then collected a
three-run home run from
Kristopher Negron in the
eighth against reliever Chris
Resop to pull within 9-8.

Taveras campaign
adds endorsements
from Pawtucket
Providence Mayor Angel
Taveras announced today the
endorsement of retired
Pawtucket Mayor James E.
Doyle, R.I. state Sen. James
E. Doyle II, and two-thirds of
the Pawtucket City Council.
“I understand many of the
challenges that Angel faced
upon coming into office, and
the kind of leadership that
was required to see
Providence successfully
through,” said Mayor Doyle,
who retired in 2010, as
Pawtucket’s longest serving
mayor. “I have been very
impressed by what Angel has
accomplished during his
tenure in Providence and look
forward to seeing him bring
this same leadership to the
State House.”
Doyle II (D-Pawtucket)
added, “When Angel first
took office, there were many
in the General Assembly who
thought that bankruptcy
might be unavoidable for
Providence. But by bringing
groups together to come to a
compromise and working
with the General Assembly,
he was able to help turn the
city around and put it on firm
financial footing.”
Additionally, Taveras was
endorsed by the following
members of the Pawtucket
City Council:
Councilman Jean Philippe
Barros (District 5), ouncilman
Terrence Mercer (District 3),
Council President David
Moran (District 1), Councilor
At Large Lorenzo Tetreault,
Councilor At Large Albert
Vitali Jr. and Councilman
Mark Wildenhain (District 2).
Cash mob organizing
in Woonsocket May 19
consumers can have lots of
fun while making a signifi-
cant economic impact by
hooking up with a cash mob
that will invade two local
businesses after meeting on
May 19 at 6 p.m. in the
Market Square municipal
parking lot on Main Street in
The lot is across from the
Museum of Work & Culture,
42 South Main St.
The Northern Rhode
Chamber of Commerce and
Blackstone Valley
Independent Business
Alliance are organizing the
cash mob, and the selected
businesses will be identified
at 6:15.
Chamber and Alliance
cash mobs are large groups of
consumers that agree to
spend at least $20 on items of
their own choosing at desig-
nated venues. The bigger the
crowd, the greater the impact
is on the local economy.
People do not have to register
for the event.
“Gathering people to form
cash mobs is a wonderful
method to help grow the local
economy,” said John C.
Gregory, president and chief
executive officer of the
“It’s so much fun,” added
Jeanne Budnick, president of
the Alliance. “Consumers
might discover some new and
exciting destinations while
enjoying the company of fel-
low shoppers.”
Business owners that want
to be a cash mob destination

WMS to be recognized
at Grow Smart event
Power of Place Summit,
organized by Grow Smart
Rhode Island, returns to the
Rhode Island Convention
Center on Friday, May 23.
With this year’s theme focus-
ing on “Positioning Rhode
Island for an Economic
Renaissance,” the biennial
statewide conference offers an
opportunity to promote and
celebrate successful smart
growth, development, policy,
and planning in the Ocean
At the Power of Place
Summit, the Woonsocket
Middle School Complex will
be recognized with the
Outstanding Smart Growth
Projects award. The distinc-
tion is one of seven RI Smart
Growth Awards that will be
presented by Grow Smart RI
to celebrate outstanding lead-
ers, projects, and plans or
policies that are accelerating
economic and community
Online registration is open
until noon on May 20, after
which the admission fee will

Established in 1998, Grow
Smart RI has become the
leading advocate for sustain-
able economic growth, revi-
talization, and improved qual-
ity of place in the state’s
urban, suburban and rural
communities. According to
Scott Wolf, executive director
of the award-winning non-
profit, attendees at the upcom-
ing daylong forum should
expect a much needed boost
of morale that is timely, in the
wake of a recent Gallup Poll
that ranked Rhode Island low-
est in the country for collec-
tive state self-esteem.
“Our Power of Place
Summit is as much an educa-
tional, as it is an invigorating
experience because we’re
focusing on the assets and
strengths that contribute to
our state’s exceptional quality
of place,” said Wolf, who
indicated that Grow Smart RI
is charged with combatting
the state’s lack of confidence
— an issue that he considers
to be one of the biggest eco-
nomic and marketing chal-
lenges facing Rhode Island.
He continued, “While our
Power of Place Summit cele-
brates numerous indicators of
progress and success that
should restore some of this
essential state pride, it is also
designed to push for contin-
ued collaboration among state
and local governments, the
private sector, and citizens
towards building stronger
The May 23rd Grow Smart
RI Power of Place Summit
runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
and offers attendees access to
the following:
• International political
analyst and author Dr.
Benjamin Barber will discuss
a new paradigm of global
governance ruled by cities
and the mayors that run them.
Presented in partnership with
the Providence Preservation
Society, the thought-provok-
ingkeynote address will
explore how Rhode Island,
the nation’s second most
urbanized state, can more
effectively empower its 39
municipalities to achieve
more prosperity and resilien-
• Following remarks by
Gov. Lincoln Chafee, the five
major gubernatorial candi-
dates will share their views on
how Rhode Island can better
tap its full economic potential
through smart growth strate-
gies and policies in a panel
discussion moderated by
Providence Business News
Editor Mark Murphy.
In addition to the
Woonsocket Middle School
Complex, Grow Smart RI will
celebrate and recognize the
following outstanding leaders,
projects, and plans or policies:
• Bike Newport

Women and Infants cancer program recognized
Commission on Cancer (CoC) of
the American College of Surgeons
announced recently that Women &
Infants Hospital of Rhode Island is
one of 74 accredited cancer pro-
grams nationwide – and one of just
two in Rhode Island – to earn its
2013 Outstanding Achievement
“The Commission on Cancer is
a respected national organization
that will only send a team to evalu-
ate a cancer program if it meets
certain criteria. To earn one of its
Outstanding Achievement Awards
is a distinct honor and tribute to
the tireless, compassionate and
innovative ways the leadership and
staff in our Program in Women’s
Oncology help women with cancer
every day,” says Mark R.
Marcantano, president and chief
operating officer of Women &
The Program in Women’s
Oncology earned a three-year
accreditation with commendation
from the CoC in late 2013 after a
successful site visit in September.
“Everything we do in the
Program in Women’s Oncology –
every doctor we hire, every service
we offer, every decision we make –
is based on our desire to help
women with cancer. Our entire
purpose is to diagnose as early as
possible, treat them as effectively
and compassionately as possible,
and support them as they face the
world as survivors,” says Cornelius
“Skip” Granai III, MD, director of
the Program in Women’s
Oncology. “We have access to the
full scope of services, research and
leading technology and science,
but it is our humane approach and
the way we are always looking to
answer the question ‘What more
can we do?’ that continues to set us
The purpose of the award is to
raise the bar on quality cancer care,
with the ultimate goal of increasing
awareness about quality care
choices among cancer patients and
their loved ones. In addition, the
award is intended to:
• Recognize those cancer pro-
grams that achieve excellence in
providing quality care to cancer
• Motivate other cancer pro-
grams to work toward improving
their level of care.
• Facilitate dialogue between
award recipients and health care
professionals at other cancer facili-
ties for the purpose of sharing best
• Encourage honorees to serve
as quality-care resources to other
cancer programs.
“More and more, we’re finding
that patients and their families
want to know how the health care
institutions in their communities
compare with one another,” said
Daniel P. McKellar, MD, FACS,
chair of the CoC. “They want
access to information in terms of
who’s providing the best quality of
care, and they want to know about
overall patient outcomes. Through
this recognition program, I’d like
to think we’re playing a small, but
vital, role in helping them make
informed decisions on their cancer
The 74 award-winning cancer
care programs represent approxi-
mately 14 percent of programs sur-
veyed by the CoC in 2013.
“These 74 cancer programs rep-
resent the best of the best when it
comes to cancer care,” McKellar
added. “Each of these facilities is
not just meeting nationally recog-
nized standards for the delivery of
quality cancer care, they are
exceeding them.”
Established in 1922 by the ACS,
