RACCOONS
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.
(AP) — Someone left five
well-fed baby raccoons on the
doorstep of the Westchester
County Health Department
Friday morning, and the
department said that person
should call immediately to be
assessed for the possibility of
rabies.
The month-old raccoons
were delivered to the depart-
ment’s office in Mount Kisco
in a cage with bottles of milk,
blankets and toys, the depart-
ment said.
“They appear to have been
well cared for and nurtured,
which means that there was
direct contact between these
raccoons and the person or
people who were caring for
them,” said Dr. Sherlita Amler,
the county health commission-
er.

WOONSOCKET – For
many years, Victoria had two
reliable companions: shame
and silence.
By the time she was 16
years old, her self-esteem was
already on the skids. She’d
been sexually abused by a
family member as a little girl,
and later date-raped by a
neighbor old enough to be her
father.
When she reached her mid-
40s, she’d already been
through two marriages, both
of them shattered by abuse.
Often, the slights weren’t
physical, but verbal, and just
as painful. She remembers her
second husband telling her
she’d be better off dead, that
he wished she was gone so
her children would never have
to know she was their mother.
“When you’re told some-
thing over and over again,”
says Victoria. “You begin to
believe it.”
Now 46 years old, Victoria
(which isn’t her real name),
has been living at Haven of
Grace, a faith-based shelter
for battered women and
recovering substance abusers
located in the onetime Holy
Family parish rectory on Coe
Street. Despite the torment
she suffered for years as a vic-
tim of domestic abuse, it was-
n’t until she arrived at the
shelter in early 2013 that she
could muster the courage to
talk about it – with anyone.
The hard part was explaining
how the abuse led her to
chemical dependency, a prob-
lem which, in turn, caused her
to lose custody of her chil-
dren.
The only thing that felt
worse to Victoria than being
locked in an abusive relation-
ship was listening to the reac-
tions about her dilemma from

Suffering
in silence
By DONNA KENNY KIRWAN

CENTRAL FALLS — The city
that is just one square mile in size is
attracting some big thinkers.
This summer, 30 students from
the Rhode Island School of Design
and Brown University, as well as
the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana
in Bogota, Colombia, will be
embarking on a joint project to
transform an empty lot on Dexter
Street into an attractively land-
scaped plaza.
The project, scheduled to start
June 8, is being spearheaded by the
DESINE Lab at RISD and a similar
venture called PEI of the Javeriana
University in Bogota. According to
Elizabeth Dean Hermann, a profes-
sor of landscape architecture at
RISD and founder of the DESINE
Lab, the plaza project will be the
first of what is anticipated to be a
long-range commitment between
these two universities to build need-
ed structures and other public proj-
ects that will improve the financial-
ly-challenged city.
Hermann said the collaboration
came about through a discussion
with Mike Ritz, executive director
of Leadership Rhode Island.
Through Leadership Rhode Island’s
partnership with Central Falls,
Hermann was introduced to the
city’s mayor, James Diossa, and its
planning director, recent Brown
University graduate Stephen

Associated Press
GOLETA, Calif. — Sheriff’s
deputies who showed up at Elliot
Rodger's doorstep last month to
check on his mental health hadn’t
seen online videos in which he
threatens suicide and violence even
though those recordings were what
prompted his parents to call authori-
ties.
By the time law enforcement did
see the videos, it was too late: The
well-mannered if shy young man that
deputies concluded after their visit
posed no risk had gone on a deadly
rampage on Friday.
The sheriff's office “was not aware
of any videos until after the shooting
rampage occurred,” Santa Barbara
County Sheriff's Office spokes-
woman Kelly Hoover said.
Sheriff Bill Brown has defended
the officers’ actions, but the case
highlights the challenges that police
face in assessing the mental health of
adults, particularly those with no his-
tory of violent breakdowns, institu-
tionalizations or serious crimes.
“Obviously, looking back on this,
it’s a very tragic situation and we cer-
tainly wish that we could turn the
clock back and maybe change some
things,” Brown told CBS’ “Face the
Nation” on Sunday.
“At the time deputies interacted
with him, he was able to convince
them that he was OK,” he said.
It’s not clear why the deputies did
not become aware of the videos.
Attorney Alan Shifman said the
Rodger family had called police after
being alarmed by YouTube videos
“regarding suicide and the killing of
people” that their son had been post-
ing.
Doris A. Fuller, executive director
of the Virginia-based Treatment
Advocacy Center, said California law
has provisions that permit emergency
psychiatric evaluations of individuals
who pose a serious threat, but that
was never triggered.
Rodger’s family has disclosed
their son was under the care of thera-
pists.
“Once again, we are grieving over
deaths and devastation caused by a
young man who was sending up red
flags for danger that failed to produce
intervention in time to avert tragedy,”

Fuller said in a statement.
“In this case, the red flags
were so big the killer’s par-
ents had called police ... and
yet the system failed,” she
said.
Rodger, writing in a man-
ifesto, said he was relieved
his apartment wasn’t
searched because deputies
would have uncovered the
cache of weapons he used in
the beach town rampage
Friday in which he killed six
people and then, authorities
say, himself.
He posted at least 22
YouTube videos. He wrote
in his manifesto that he
uploaded most of his videos
in the week leading up to
April 26, when he originally
planned to carry out his
attacks.
He postponed his plan
after catching a cold.
Because many of the
videos were removed from
YouTube then re-added in
the week leading up to the
killings, it’s unclear which of
the videos alarmed his fami-
ly, or whether others were
reported that were not
uploaded again.
In a last-minute bid to
intervene, Rodger’s parents
raced to his home Friday
night after his mother saw
his online threats, but the
couple heard the news of a
shooting on the radio as they
were on the freeway, the Los
Angeles Times reported
Sunday.
Family friend Simon
Astaire told the newspaper
that Elliot Rodger’s mother,
Chin Rodger, got a call from
her son’s therapist shortly
before the shooting started
that he had emailed his ranti-
ng manifesto. Then, the
mother found the YouTube
video in which he threatens
to kill people. She alerted
authorities and set off franti-
cally with her ex-husband,
Hollywood director Peter
Rodger.
But by the time they
arrived, officers confirmed
their son had gone on a
deadly rampage. Elliot
Rodger played the video
game “World of Warcraft,”
but the family never suspect-
ed he would have guns, said
Astaire, who was speaking
on behalf of the family.
Investigators, including
from federal Bureau of
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms
and Explosives, searched his
parents’ homes Sunday and
left with boxes of evidence.
In his videos and writ-
ings, Rodger voices his
contempt for everyone from
his roommates to the
human race, reserving spe-
cial hate for two groups:
the women he says kept
him a virgin for all of his
22 years and the men they
chose instead.
At least two other people
who saw Rodger’s videos
before Friday compared
him to a serial killer,
through a message board on
a bodybuilding website and
the social network Reddit.
The rampage played out
largely as he sketched it in
public postings, including a
YouTube video where he
sits in the BMWin sunset
light and appears to be act-
ing out scripted lines and
planned laughs.
“I’ll take great pleasure
in slaughtering all of you,”
the son of a Hollywood
director who worked on
“The Hunger Games” says
in the video posted Friday
and taken down by
YouTube Saturday with a
message saying it violated
the site's terms of service.
Brown told CNN on
Sunday that investigators
are close to having a “pret-
ty clear picture of what
happened.”
Larrick. Particularly since
the about 65 percent of
Central Falls' population is
Colombian American, all
agreed that a partnership
with the design and urban
studies students would bene-
fit all of the parties
involved, and the plaza proj-
ect was chosen as a start.
Hermann said the loca-
tion at Dexter and Cowden
Street was chosen because
the city of Central Falls
already owns the land. The
team of students will design
and build a “public square”
which will include open
space with paving, plant-
ings, and a covered outdoor
shelter for community gath-
erings. She noted that RISD
Professor Silvia Acosta,
who was involved in a pre-
vious student project to
build a community garden at
the Chinese Christian
Church in Pawtucket, will
also be involved in the plaza
construction.
Hermann said the plaza is
just the first step in keeping
with a strategic master plan
for Central Falls that is also
being developed by the
DESINE Lab at RISD and
the Urban Systems studio in
the Division of Architecture
and Design. After learning
through discussions with
Larrick that the city, which
is recovering from federal
bankruptcy, had no current
master plan in place,
Hermann offered the stu-
dents’ services. She said the
core objectives of the master
plan focus on strengthening
the city’s identity, navigabil-
ity, economic foundation,
and community.
Among the main con-
cepts of the master plan are
promoting Central Falls as
an “urban village” with a
distinct identity and with
more communal spaces that
help create this identity;
weaving symbols of the
city's history, diversity and
cultures through community
events, pedestrian routes
and other open spaces; and
using the natural topogra-
phy, which includes the
Blackstone Rivera, as a
framework for public gath-
ering spaces.
Other elements of the
master plan include
strengthening the connection
between residents with the
local schools and the library,
and developing local and
regional “economic drivers”
such as programs aimed to
help small businesses, and
partnerships with other insti-
tutions that can help spur
economic growth.
Hermann said that each
summer, the DESINE Build
Academy intends to bring
together a group of students
and faculty from Javeriana
University with RISD and
Brown students and faculty
to work on a project that is
identified as being important
to the community's needs.
“We will design it and we
will build it,” she said.
Each project will also be
an opportunity to train
members of the community
in things like construction,
project management and
leadership, and are also
intended to follow on the
after-school programs cur-
rently being run out of
Central Falls High School.
One side project will
involve an invitation to the
city’s many auto repair
shops to work with high
school students in a design
challenge to create a fleet of
three-wheeler “taxis” to
transport people and goods
within city limits. “We have
made a long-term commit-
ment to Central Falls,” she
said.
Hermann added that
while the universities are
supplying the design
knowhow and labor, they
are seeking donations of
money along with building
and landscaping materials to
help pay for the plaza proj-
ect. “We’re desperately try-
ing to raise money,” she
stated.
Anyone who wants to
donate is asked to contact

other people.
“It was embarrassing,” she
says. “I could hear people
saying, ‘What type of mother
are you? How come you
don’t have the strength to
fight for your kids? Why did
you stay?’
“It hurts to hear that,” says
Victoria.
Nearly three decades after
the state passed the first laws
recognizing domestic abuse
as a unique kind of family-
centered violence, Victoria’s
story remains a sad refrain for
many victims. Often, the pain
and suffering of an abusive
relationship seems preferable
to wearing, for all to see, the
scarlet letter of a relationship
gone bad.
“There’s not a lot of pride
attached to being victim of
domestic violence,” said
Vanessa Volz, director of
Sojouner House, a group of
shelters for victims of family
violence. “There’s a lot of
victim-blaming: why did she
stay? Why didn’t she leave?
Why did she marry him if she
knew he had a violent tem-
per?”
Those aren’t the right
questions, says Volz.
“The right question is why
society tolerates this kind of
violence.”
Judith Lajoie, co-founder
and executive director of
Haven of Grace, remembers
her own experience as a vic-
tim of spouse abuse back in
the 1960s, some two decades
before state lawmakers, under
pressure from women’s advo-
cates, codified domestic
assault as a crime.
She was living in Manville
in those days, a village of
densely packed multi-families
in Lincoln where everyone
knew each other. When she
had to run an errand, she
wouldn’t leave the house
without her sunglasses on –
and not because she was try-
ing to hide any bruises.
She was just trying to hide,
period. She didn’t want to be
known a “battered woman.”
“I didn’t want to go
around in life having that
define who I am,” she says.
“I’d rather be the woman who
got out.”
Lajoie, who has a doctoral
degree in theological counsel-
ing, has served as the director
of Haven of Grace for more
than 23 years. It’s a perch
that’s given her a bird’s eye
view of the behavioral cracks
and crevices of women
touched by domestic vio-
lence.
Over the years, she’s come
to the conclusion that a
woman branded with the taint
of victimhood is, to other
women, anyway, something
like kryptonite to Superman.
They want to get as far away
from it as possible because
the specter of domestic vio-
lence invariably causes them
to make an assessment of
their own relationships, which
is something they don’t want
to do.
“There’s a lot of women
who don’t want to know
they’re in an abusive relation-
ship,” she says.
Lajoie talks about a “con-
spiracy of silence” among
women who come into con-
tact with victims of domestic
violence, but do nothing.
“Most of the time, when
there’s a battered woman it’s
men who come to the rescue,
maybe a brother, maybe a
father. Females are not as
quick to come to the rescue,”
she says.
Some women’s advocates
say most women linger in
abusive relationship too long
because they’re worried about
losing the security of a part-
ner, even if that partner is
prone to injurious outbursts of
violence. As often as not, they
have children, and they worry
about the essentials of a sta-
ble life, food, a warm, safe
place to sleep at night.
Chondra Straton, a law
enforcement advocate who
works with abuse victims in
the Greater Woonsocket area,
says the fear of losing securi-
ty can be so powerful that it
prevents victims from report-
ing crimes of abuse. While
they want the abuse to stop,
they don’t want the price to
be as high as having the
breadwinning abuser in the
family to end up in jail.
Women in abusive rela-
tionships are sometimes seen
as being in denial, but Straton
says the issue is seldom so
clear-cut. Abuse can creep up
so slowly before it becomes
physical that the victim isn’t
yet emotionally enlightened
enough to be in denial. “Alot
of times people don’t’ recog-
nize it as abuse because
there’s been such a slow
buildup,” she says.
And there is more to stay-
ing in a relationship that is
twisted by violence than mere
security.
Though these relationships
are hardly examples of
domestic bliss, the people
involved are often nursing
feelings about their partners
that may date back to better
times. Victims often hope that
their mate’s abusive behavior
will somehow stop and things
will go back to the way they
used to be.
“The victim still loves the
person they’re with,” says
Straton. “More than embar-
rassment, there are emotional
reasons for staying in a rela-
tionship.”
Victims’ advocates and
members of the healing com-
munity may all see the psy-
chic wounds of abuse through
their own unique lens, but
one thing they all agree on is
the need for more education-
ally oriented prevention pro-
grams.
The key deficit: recogniz-
ing abuse, especially before it
turns violent.
Batterers are as much in
need of early intervention as
victims, says Dr. Kathleen
Carty, president of Vantage
Point Inc., a West-Warwick
based agency that runs a
series of intervention groups
for abusers, including one for
women. Physical abuse is
typically the last phase of a
long chain of dehumanizing,
disrespectful behaviors that
grow worse over time.
Insults, screaming, the cold
shoulder-treatment, name-
calling – they’re all keys to a
door that leads to increasing
risk.
The trouble is that abusers
tend to have a blind spot for
these kinds of trespasses.
“Alot of times you’ll hear
this from the guys in our
groups...if I learned this in
elementary school or if I
learned this in middle school,
I wouldn’t have ended up in
this situation,” she says.
Lajoie says public schools
ought to embrace some sort
of curriculum to address the
issue of healthy relationships
and family harmony from the
time children are learning
their ABCs.
“I think it should start in
kindergarten,” says Lajoie.
Lajoie thinks education
and prevention programs are
the best investment society
can make in stanching the
tide of domestic violence.
Becoming a victim is a
learned behavior that often
starts at a very young age.
She calls it “learned helpless-
ness.” The lesson is often
handed down through the
generations, passed on to
children who end up model-
ing the behavior of their par-
ents “I think from the
moment they’re born.”
“We need to educate peo-
ple on what abuse is,” she
says. “I can’t say that enough.
We teach children reading
and writing but we don’t
teach them how to get along
with one another. I think it
needs to be taught.”
Deborah DeBare, the exec-
utive director of the Rhode
Island Coalition Against
Domestic Violence, says the
agency has long been advo-
cating for more education-ori-
ented prevention programs.
The question is how to pay
for them.
This year, DeBare said the
coalition’s flagship legislative
proposal to the General
Assembly was a measure
designed to create a revenue
stream by hiking the cost of
a marriage license.
Currently, a marriage license
in Rhode Island is $24, one
of the lowest in the country.
The proposal would raise
the fee an additional $46, of
which $2 would go to the
city or town where the
license is issued.
The other $44 would be
set aside by the general
treasure as a “domestic vio-
lence prevention fund” to be
administered by the
RICADV. DeBare says the
money could be used for edu-
cational programs in public
school and other settings.
The measure is currently
pending in the House of
Representatives, listed as
being held for further study
after a committee hearing.
“We want to make sure all
young people understand
what a healthy relationship
is,” said DeBare.
In a society built on mobil-
ity and convenience, DeBare
can understand the lack of
emphasis on prevention as a
strategy for chipping away at
the epidemic of domestic vio-
lence, but she doesn’t accept
it. When it comes to dollars,
the emphasis is on the quick
fix, but prevention calls on
society to make a long-range
investment in a goal that may
be hard to measure.
“Everybody’s focused on
the immediate payoff,’ she
says. “With prevention you
have to look out a generation
to see the impact.”

Mattiello’s trip to NYC was purely theatrical
Alot of the stuff you saw last
week about 38 Studios was politi-
cal theater.
What was the point of House
Speaker Nicholas Mattiello and
Majority Leader John DeSimone
hopping a train to New York City
for a face-to-face with the folks
from the Moody’s and Standard &
Poor’s bond rating services?
Mattiello called it a “fact-finding”
mission, but what facts did they
find that both Moody’s and S&P
hadn’t already said very unequivo-
cally?
Were they supposed to change
their minds because Mattiello and
DeSimone showed up in person?
They’re really not that scary.
What did Mattiello think they
were going to say, “Well, since you
guys showed up here in person,
hell, you don’t have to pay off
those bonds, go ahead and stiff
‘em, we won’t care”?
When they came back later that
day and Mattiello said he knew the
direction he wanted to take, well,
then the die was cast. I Tweeted at
the time: “If I had to bet my own
money, I would say RI is going to
wind up paying the 38 Studios
bonds.” It was obvious.
Mattiello knew what he wanted
to do before he ever boarded the
train. The rest was just window
dressing. What was he going to do,
make a big show about going to
meet with Moody’s and S&P and
come back and say, “to heck with
them, we’re not paying the
bonds”? If he did that, then any-
thing bad that happened after that
would be his fault. And he certain-
ly didn’t want that.
The really egregious part of this
whole thing happened on Friday
when Mattiello took to the radio
airwaves and told WPRO’s Gene
Valicenti that he
was yanking the
rug out from
under House
Oversight
Committee
Chairman Karen
MacBeth and he
wouldn’t author-
ize the commit-
tee to issue sub-
poenas
Having determined how things
would happen going forward on 38
Studios, Mattiello took the steps he
could to ensure that the past stayed
safely buried as well. High-profile
hearings with witnesses forced to
testify by subpoena might have
revealed too much about how that
particular link of sausage was
made. Even if the subpoenaed wit-
nesses came and invoked the 5th
Amendment, there would have
been value in that as well. But a
subpoena may have been what it
would take to get someone
involved in the deal to talk, and
that might have brought forward a
lot of skeletons that the powers that
be in the state wish to remain in the
closet.
Now we’ll never know.
The notion that we are going to
find out anything from the state’s
lawsuit against alleged 38 Studios
perpetrators is now looking much
less likely.
How long do you think it is
going to take a judge to dismiss
First Southwest from the lawsuit
when it comes out in court that,
after suing them for fraud and from
withholding vital information from
us, we turn around and hire them
again to be our fiscal advisors?
That doesn’t pass the laugh test.
•••
Republican Ken Block (sort of)
released a poll last week that did
exactly what it intended to do: toss
a hand grenade into the GOP pri-
mary for governor.
Block now claims he is beating
opponent Allan Fung by 9 percent,
after acknowledging that he was
down by 28 last October. Block
says his numbers have him at 46
percent in the race to Fung’s 37.
I saw some, but not all, of the
questions and answers in Block’s
poll. It seemed on the up and up
and did not appear to be a “push
poll,” designed to smear one’s
opponent rather than to receive a
valid result.
Block will tell you that poll
show that his ideas are catching on
and that Republican voters are
starting to warm up to his message
about saving a billion dollars and
fighting corruption.
I’m not so sure of that. What I
think Block’s poll is showing is
what a god-awful campaign Fung
is running.
While Block has been touting
his economic issues and issuing
press releases on everything from
38 Studios, to the hiring of First
Southwest (see above) and the
appointment of Richard Licht as a
judge (see below), Fung’s cam-
paign, from what I can tell, is to
say “Ken Block voted for Obama
twice and he liked Obamacare.
If Rhode Island were Alabama
or someplace like that, Fung’s
argument might gain some traction.
But even though Rhody
Republicans as a group are a bit
more conservative than they used
to be, not all of them go that far to
the right, and independents are
pretty middle of the road, too. Hell,
a lot of the independents who will
vote in the Republican primary
probably voted for Obama them-
selves. Fung needs to move on
from those arguments.
For one thing, they show he is
exclusively focused on the
Republican primary and he will
worry about the general election
when and if it comes. Block, on the
other hand, is already aiming some
of his fire at the Democrats he will
be fighting if he wins.
This shows more than ever that
what I have been saying since the
start is correct: If he wants to beat
Fung, he has to lure independents
into voting in the GOP primary.
(All that being said, when this
election year is over, the award for
best political slogan will go to
“Girls just want to have Fung.”)
•••
I can understand the criticism
being raised about Gov. Lincoln
Chafee’s appointment of Richard
Licht to be a Superior Court judge.
Yes, it is another case of a polit-
ically connected guy getting a
plum job. But the selection of a
judge is always going to be a polit-
ical deal. Judges are appointed by
governors and confirmed by sena-
tors. How do you propose taking
the politics out of that? Surely not
by electing judges. That would
make matters worse, much worse.
So any way you go about hiring a
judge is going to involve politics.
People who say they want a
process of picking judges that is
completely free of politics want, as
Thomas Jefferson might say, some-
thing “that never was and never
will be.”
The thing is, as politically con-
nected guys go, Licht seems a pret-
ty good pick. We have gotten our-
selves a lot of hack judges over the
years, both through the old way of
the General Assembly electing
them and the current way of having
the governor do it through the
Judicial Nominating Commission
process, but I don’t expect Licht to
be one of those.
He was a state senator, so he
knows firsthand how law gets
made. He was a lobbyist, so he
knows firsthand how laws REAL-
LY get made. He practiced law, so
he knows his way around a court-
room. And as a lieutenant governor
and now top bureaucrat in the
Chafee administration he has
worked to put laws and other gov-
ernmental decisions into action.
Also, it should be noted, he did a
pretty good job in all of the above
occupations. The guy’s got some
chops. And he should be prepared
to deal with most of the problems
and disputes that are going to be
brought before him on the bench.
To me, all those things seem to be
qualifications. But I’m sure that is
not going to quiet the naysayers.
•••
Have a meaningful Memorial
Day.
Memorial Day will likely bring alarmist
headlines in the elite media about a populist
fever raging in Europe, and manifest in the
shocking returns from the elections for the
European Parliament.
Marine Le Pen’s
National Front may run first
in France, and Nigel
Farage’s UK Independence
Party first in Britain.
What is happening in
Europe?
In his unpublished
“Leviathan and Its
Enemies,” my late friend
Sam Francis wrote of the
coming crisis of the “soft
managerial state,” of which
the European Union is a text-
book example.
Oswald Spengler used the word
“Civilization” to describe “the terminal phase
of a cultural organism,” wrote Francis. In
1941, Pitirim Sorokin described the character-
istics of a Spenglerian “Civilization”:
“[C]osmopolitanism and the megalopolis
vs. ‘home,’ ‘race,’ ‘blood group’ and ‘father-
land’; scientific irreligion or abstract dead
metaphysics instead of the religion of the
heart; ‘cold matter-of-factness’ vs. reverence
and tradition and respect for age; internation-
alist ‘society’ instead of ‘my country’ and
state (nation); money and abstract values in
lieu of earth and real (living) values; ‘mass’
instead of ‘folk’; sex in lieu of motherhood ...
and so on.”
Between the managerial state and the civi-
lization and culture that preceded it, the polar-
ities are stark.
Yet they mirror the clashes of today as the
European Union of Jean Monnet and Robert
Schuman’s vision exhibits unmistakable
symptoms of disintegration and decay.
In a way, this is remarkable.
For undeniably, the rise of the EU has
coincided with an unprecedented rise in the
standard of living for the hundreds of millions
from the Atlantic to the Baltic and from the
North Sea to the Mediterranean.
Still, though Alfred Lord Tennyson’s
“Parliament of man” and “Federation of the
world” captured the imagination of 19th-and
20th-century one-worlders, the dream has
proven incapable of capturing the hearts of
European peoples. Who would die for the
Brussels bureaucracy?
What are the identifying marks of these
populist parties that have sprouted up now in
almost every European country?
There is first the rejection of universalism
and transnationalism, and a reversion to patri-
otism and its songs, symbols, holidays, histo-
ry, myths and legends.
To peoples such as these, the preservation
of the separate and unique ethnic and cultural
identity of the nation supersedes all claims of
supranational organizations, be it the EU or
U.N.
This sentiment is reflected not only in
fierce resistance to further integration within
the EU, but in visceral hostility to further
immigration from the Third World, Islamic
world or Eastern Europe.
These people want to remain who and
what they are.
Even the Swiss last winter voted for an
initiative of the People’s Party calling for rein-
troduction of quotas for immigrants from the
EU.
Asecond telltale sign of the new pop-
ulism is traditionalism and cultural conser-
vatism, reverence for the religious and cultural
history and heritage of the nation and its
indigenous people.
That victory in the recent Eurovision con-
test of Conchita, the bearded transvestite drag
queen who performed in a gown, though cele-
brated by much of the European press, sent a
message to millions of traditionalists that this
is no longer their culture.
Another aspect of the rising populist right,
as the New York Times notes, is a grudging
admiration for Russia's Vladimir Putin.
Why? Putin not only publicly rejects the
moral relativism of the West, under his guid-
ance Russian social legislation is being con-
sciously rooted in traditional Christian con-
cepts of right and wrong.
Putin is the anti-Obama, moving to occu-
py the cultural-moral vacuum left by America.
As we celebrate multiculturalism, LGBT
rights, and abortion on demand, Putin repudi-
ates Hollywood values.
When Western politicians and media rail
against his annexation of Crimea as a viola-
tion of America's rules-based New World
Order, Putin invokes patriotism and national-
ism in his defense: Crimea belonged to us for
200 years. Most of its people are Russians.
They wish to return to Mother Russia. Our
warm-water port is there.
Americans do not dictate to Russians
where Russia's vital interests are concerned.
In the anti-American precincts of Europe,
they are applauding.
Yet another specter is haunting Europe:
secessionism. Scots, Catalans and Venetians
wish to declare independence and become
again the countries they once were.
As for the epithets used on the populists,
that they are racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic,
fascist, overuse has caused them to lose their
toxicity.
The Eurocrats have cried wolf too often.
How serious is this right-wing populism?
At the least, as the Tea Party has pulled the
GOP to the right, these parties are likely to
pull center and center-right parties in their
direction all across Europe.
Then there is the real possibility not only
of a breakup of the EU, but of the breakup of
the United Kingdom, the loss of Scotland
after 300 years, England’s secession from the
EU, and the collapse of the Tory Party into
Europhiles and Europhobes, all on David
Cameron's watch.
Like materialism, consumerism and
socialism, transnationalism suffers from the
same fatal flaw. It feeds the body and starves
the soul. And eventually bored people hear the
old calls again.
Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of
“Suicide of a Superpower: Will America
Survive to 2025?”
The specter haunting Europe, EU
It’s a TRAIN station
When are they going to do
something about the old
depot, that train station on
Broad and Barton streets?
Please do something. It’s
deplorable...sickening. I live
at Kennedy Manor and I have
to look at it all the time. Why
don’t they make it a train sta-
tion again instead of making people go all
the way to South Attleboro?
Editor’s note: that station has been rejct-
ed by planners as unsuitable for a modern-
day depot. A new depot is planned for fur-
ther down Barton Street.
Some things never change
The Rhode island Lottery has been in
operation for 40 years, so you can just ima-
gaine how much money the politicians
have stolen from the lottery, because they
are all a bunch of crooks. Only the names
change, they are all crooks.

The pols are the problem
When will the voters of Rhode Island
smarten up? We have to vote out these
politicians. They are our problem. They are
only out for themselves.

Why not reinstate Sarault, too?
This concerns the governor and all the
lawmakers who approved Cicilline’s broth-
er getting his license back to practice law.
If they can do that, there is no reason why
Brian Sarault shouldn’t be reinstated as a
lawyer again as well. Obviously, Mr.
Cicilline used the power of his office to do
this. Shame, shame, shame.

the McCoy Stadium sign

Tax old and new cars equally, CF
To the mayor of Central Falls—How
about making all car taxes equal? Newer
cars are better for the environment and the
roads, yet we are taxed higher than older
cars. All cars should be taxed at the same
rate and cost. We all use the same roads.
In search of vacuum cleaner repair
I’m looking for a vacuum cleaner serv-
ice and repair shop in the area. There used
to be one on Armistice Boulevard but the
number is no longer in service. Can some-
one call in Teletimes if they know a place
that does repairs or has parts?
What’s with the grocery cart?
In that photograph showing the shrine
for the woman who was killed in Central
Falls...what were they doing with a grocery
cart? They use that for their personal pleas-
ure? Those things belong in the stores.

its cells filled. Really? I say bring back
capital punishment. We didn’t need that
prison anyway.

Both Ken Block and
Allan Fung had appeared
before our group, made their
case, and responded to our
questions.
“In the end, the
Committee felt that Fung’s
experience and track record
as Cranston Mayor, and his
consistent record as a
Republican were distin-
guishing characteristics that
set him apart and deserved
our support,” Newton said.
The committee also voted
endorsements for Dawson
Hodgson for Attorney
General, Anthony Giarrusso
for a second term as State
Representative, and Mark
Gee, an East Greenwich

11th ANNIVERSARY Grandpa Jake way up in Heaven,
How many years gone by now; Maybe eleven,
I think of the many things I miss about you.
Like your eyes and their bright color blue.
I remember your sly laugh,
And your special plumbing craf.
Walking down the street with Rosco in toe,
Or out in the yard,
Working hard shoveling snow
What about the Pixie, making kids holler!
Or how you loved smoking cigars
In your parlor.
Playing silly pranks on Louie and Bone
Makes me think, gosh... I wish you were home.
I remember my Dad,
He loved cutting your hair
And visions of you in your old red comfy chair.
You knew you were loved by all of us,
I wish God didn’t take you in such a rush.
I remember you loved cofee shakes
And apple pies
Little things I love about you
And the memories that will never die.
I want you to know you’re forever in my heart.
Deep down, we’re never far apart.
I miss you Grandpa Jake

PROVIDENCE (AP) —
Donald Levine, the Hasbro
executive credited as the
father of G.I. Joe for devel-
oping the world’s first action
figure, has died. He was 86.
He died of cancer early
Thursday at Home &
Hospice Care of Rhode
Island, said his wife, Nan.
They were just about to cel-
ebrate their 60th wedding
anniversary.
Levine shepherded the
toy through design and
development as Hasbro’s
head of research and devel-
opment. He and his team
came up with an 11½-inch
articulated figure with 21
moving parts, and since the
company’s employees
included many military vet-
erans, it was decided to out-
fit the toy in the uniforms of
the Army, Navy, Marines
and Air Force, with such
accessories as guns, helmets
and vehicles.
Levine, who served in the
Army in Korea, said he got
the idea for the moveable
figure as a way to honor vet-
erans.
G.I. Joe hit the shelves in
time for the 1964 Christmas
shopping season and soon
became a big seller at $4
apiece.
“Don Levine and his team
took it from a good concept
to a great concept,” said
Alan Hassenfeld, Hasbro’s
former CEO whose father,
Merrill, oversaw G.I. Joe’s
development when he ran
the company.
G.I. Joe remained popular
until the late 1960s, as oppo-
sition to Vietnam intensified
and parents shied away from
military-related toys. Hasbro
countered in 1970 by intro-
ducing “Adventure Team”
G.I. Joes that played down
the military connection. Into
the ‘70s, G.I. Joes featured
“lifelike hair” and “kung-fu
grip” and were outfitted with
scuba gear to save the
oceans and explorer’s cloth-
ing for discovering mum-
mies.
Hasbro said in a state-
ment that Levine’s “influ-
ence on the toy industry was
profound” as his team devel-
oped the concept of an
action figure.
“His work forever
changed the way kids play
with toys, and in particular
helped birth the G.I. Joe
brand which has been a part
of the American fabric for
50 years,” the company said.
Over the decades, G.I. Joe
has spawned comic books,
cartoons, two movies star-
ring Channing Tatum, and a
G.I. Joe Collector’s Club and
its annual convention —
GIJoeCon — held in Dallas
in April.
Levine’s funeral will be
held Sunday morning at
Temple Beth-El in
Providence. He is survived
by his wife, three children
and four grandchildren.

exec who helped
create GI Joe, dies

UXBRIDGE —A local cable
access show filmed out of a single car
garage in Uxbridge now airs on more
than 400 stations across 45 States,
from Alaska to Hawaii, Canada and
South Africa.
Steve Butler has been producing his
show “The Garage with Steve Butler”
for four years and it has garnered a lot
of attention. In fact, Rhode Island
PBS has just agreed to air the show.
Steve Butler, with the help of
Uxbridge community TV will produce
13 episodes a season for four years for
Rhode Island PBS. The show pre-
mieres on Rhode Island PBS on
Saturday, July 6th at 2:30 p.m.
According to the show’s Web sote:
“Steve Butler is an artist and furniture
maker with more than 20 years experi-
ence in the field. In his garage work-
shop, he’ll share with you the way to
make fun, funky projects without hav-
ing all the fancy expensive shop tools
of the other shows —anything from
fine furniture to cool, artsy objects are
what he’s making. ‘The Garage’ is a
how-to show unlike any other.”
Three years ago, Butler, the host
and creator of the show lost his job at
a major art and craft school as a
teacher and as an artist in residence.
He moved back to Massachusetts with
his wife and son. As an artist he is
always sketching project ideas in his
sketchbook.
One night while watching television
Steve saw an announcement on the
local community access channel about
making your own TV show. He decid-
ed that he would set up a camera on
his workbench and film himself mak-
ing the projects that appeared in his
sketchbook, hoping that by doing so
he would get some work out of it, gen-
erating a commission or two. This is
how ‘The Garage with Steve Butler’
came about. Steve loves teaching and
showing people how to lose their inhi-
bitions and be creative. He downsized
his studio and equipment after the
move and had to learn how to be cre-
ative on a tight budget, being very
resourceful, re-using and re-purposing
materials for projects. This message
he wants to convey to others.
All of the projects are original and
made out of materials and tools easily
accessible to most people. The show is
a labor of love. Butler receives no
proceeds from the show, in fact it cost
him approximately anywhere from
$500 to $1,000 an episode to produce.
The show is available on most cable
access channels in Massachusetts and
other States.
Search your local access channel to
see when the show airs in your neigh-
borhood.

Fung endorsed by E.G. GOP
By MARGO ANN SULLIVAN
Thor, a Yellow Lab, served four
years with the U.S. Marines as a
bomb-sniffing dog in Afghanistan.
But when the military retired him,
the government did not provide a
ticket home for the 7-year-old dog.
On Thursday, the American
Humane Association and Mission K9
Rescue flew Thor to Seattle to spend
his golden years with an old buddy,
U.S. Marine Corps veteran Sergeant
Deano Miller.
Miller and Thor went to
Afghanistan together in 2010 after
training in Virginia, according to
Mark Stubis, of the American
Humane Association. But when
Miller’s tour ended, the Marines
transferred Thor to a new handler.
Miller went home.
“When I had to put Thor in his
kennel, it was the first and only time
he refused to listen to me,” he said.
“I felt like someone took a hammer
to my heart; it was like I was aban-
doning my best friend and he could-
n’t understand why.”
Thor survived the next four years
in Afghanistan, but then he couldn’t
work anymore. Miller wanted to find
him and adopt him, but he needed
help cutting through the red tape.
Many dogs like Thor never make
it home, according to Amy
McCullough, the American Humane
Association’s national director for
humane research and therapy. Sure,
the veterans want to rescue their old
buddies, but the Army doesn’t keep
good records of the dog’s where-
abouts.
The military classifies retired
working dogs, like Thor, as excess
equipment, she said. Per standard
operating procedure, many dogs are
put down when their service is over.
Say, what? Didn’t U.S. policy
change so the dogs could come home
and be adopted?
Yes and no, she said. Legally, the
dogs can return, she said. That was-
n’t so during Vietnam when the mili-
tary insisted war dogs could not be
reintroduced safely to civilian life.
Congress did act to change the
policy after the story came out how
the Army abandoned thousands of
military dogs in Asia.
But actually finding the dogs
overseas and bringing them home is
a separate question. Most veterans
want to adopt their old dogs, she
said. They just can’t find them in
time.
This summer, Congress will hold
briefings about the plight of military
war dogs, she said.
Meanwhile, the non-profit organi-
zations help fly the dogs home and
are putting the word out in the hope
public outcry will work again. Thor’s
arrival at Seattle-Tacoma
International Airport made network
news, and the television cameras also
rolled last month at a similar reunion
when Cila, another military war dog,
came home to old pal, Sgt. Jason
Bos, in Chicago.
Each military working dog saves
approximately 150 to 200 military
service member lives, Stubis
believes. They deserve a hero’s wel-
come home.
American Humane responded in
1916 when U.S. Secretary of War
Newton D. Baker asked for a group
similar to Red Cross to help animals
wounded in World War I, Stubis
said. Red Star Animal Relief provid-
ed medical care to more than
245,000 horses and mules. (The Red
Star teams today focus on rescuing
pets from natural disasters and cruel-
ty.)
The U.S. Army began to rely on
dogs in World War II. Some family
pets were volunteered. Many died in
combat. Over time, tens of thousands
of animals have been killed or suf-
fered wounds fighting mankind’s
wars worldwide.
McCullough doubts the military
will ever give up war dogs because
they’re cheap labor and so effective
at detecting bombs. American
Humane works to improve their con-
ditions, she said, focusing on better
training practices and assisting with
the dogs’ return home.

WAKE FOREST — Hurricane
season is nearly upon us – running
from June 1 to November 30.
It is expected to be a busy hurri-
cane season this year. Experts pre-
dict 17 named storms and 8 hurri-
canes, 3 of which may be major hur-
ricanes.
It is not realistic to think certain
areas cannot be affected by a hurri-
cane. The entire Atlantic and Gulf
coasts are considered high-risk areas.
Inland areas are affected by the high
winds, floods and tornadoes. The
best protection from a hurricane is to
be prepared and have a plan. These
plans should include the entire fami-
ly – that means our pets. To help pet
owners prepare for hurricane season,
TripsWithPets.com provides an
online Disaster Preparedness and
Resource Guide for Pets, www.trip-
swithpets.com/prepare.
Pets are abandoned during hurri-
canes and natural disasters every
year. Pet owners’ lack of planning is
a big part of the problem. Many find
themselves scrambling to find a safe
harbor for their pet in the event of
evacuation from their homes.
The most important part of a dis-
aster plan is to prepare for an evacu-
ation. Red Cross disaster shelters
cannot accept pets because of states’
health and safety regulations and
other considerations. Further, most
kennels, veterinarians, and animal
shelters are usually filled beyond
capacity. TripsWithPets.com’s
Disaster Preparedness and Resource
Guide for Pets offers a pet evacua-
tion plan checklist, complete with
resources on finding a safe place for
pets to stay, what to do if pets are
home alone when disaster strikes, as
well as recommended items to
include in a Pet Evacuation &
Disaster Kit.
In addition, the
TripsWithPets.com Disaster
Preparedness and Resource Guide
for Pets includes links to the
National Hurricane Center, Weather
Channel, American Red Cross, and
FEMA – just to name a few. The
guide also offers site visitors access
to helpful directories, such as over
20,000 pet friendly accommodations
across the U.S. and Canada, airlines,
pet hospitals and more.
“We never know when a disaster
will strike. That’s why we all need to
take the time now to prepare a disas-
ter plan for our pets.” comments
Kim Salerno, president of Trips with
Pets, Inc. “The best thing you can do
to ensure the safety and well being
of your pets is to be prepared.”
To keep pets safe, create a disas-
ter plan now.
Planning for hurricane
season should include pets
DEAR ABBY: I married a
great guy a short while ago.
It’s the second marriage for
both of us. He’s good to my
kids, my parents, and even
gets along with my ex-hus-
band.
“Stan” moved into my
home after we married.
There’s only one major prob-
lem I’m having trouble deal-
ing with: He goes through all
my things, from my mail to
my closet. I have caught him
going through my glove com-
partment, the trunk of my car
and anything else he can get
his hands on.
He says he has a “right” to
do it “because we are mar-
ried,” but I don’t look at it
that way. His first marriage
did not go well. His ex didn’t
cheat on him, so I don’t know
where this is coming from.
Abby, I am squeaky clean.
I have never given him any
reason not to trust me. I
believe he’s just nosy.
Meanwhile, I feel violated.
I have tried talking to him
about it, but he just doesn’t
get it. Please help before I
end my new marriage.
— THE NEW MRS. IN
DELAWARE
DEAR NEWMRS.:
“Great guys” do not rifle
through their wives’ mail and
personal belongings after
having been asked not to. You
say your husband’s first mar-
riage didn’t go well, and she
didn’t cheat on him. Do you
know what did cause their
divorce?
Your husband’s obsession
with searching through your
belongings is not normal
behavior. There may be a
chapter in his life you know
nothing about.
Because you have asked
him to stop, and he is either
unwilling or unable to, it may
take help from a licensed psy-
chotherapist to get to the bot-
tom of it. Of course, in order
for that to happen, your hus-
band would have to be will-
ing. If he isn’t, you may
indeed have to decide
whether you can live with
this “quirk” of his or would
be better off without him.
***
DEAR ABBY: I am a
teacher who loves my job.
Now that the school year is
winding down, may I ask you
to pass on this suggestion to
all the wonderful parents who
send in gifts to their chil-
dren’s teachers?
My family has food aller-
gies. For this reason, unless
the lovingly baked goodies
have ALL the ingredients list-
ed on the wrapping paper, my
family cannot enjoy them. I
usually pass on these goodies
to other teachers and neigh-
bors. (Please don’t think I’m
not appreciative; this is pure-
ly a medical precaution.)
If I may suggest a gift
idea: gift certificates for all
kinds of flowers. How often
do we receive the joy of
flowers? Thank you for pass-
ing this along.
— EDUCATOR IN
SOUTH CAROLINA
DEAR EDUCATOR:
You’re welcome. While gift
certificates for flowers are a
wonderful idea, I’m sure a
gift certificate for school sup-
plies would also be wel-
comed, because many teach-
ers purchase supplies for their
classrooms out of their own
funds.
***
DEAR READERS: Along
with the millions of
Americans who are observing
this Memorial Day, I would
like to add my prayer of
thanks to those men and
women of our armed services
who laid down their lives in
service to our country. May
they rest in peace.
— Love, ABBY

ARIES (March 21-April 19).
Victory and defeat are two sides
of the same coin. Since you can’t
pay with only one side, in order
to buy a new future, you have to
first accept that sometimes you
win and sometimes you lose.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20).
You’re not afraid of the dark;
you just prefer to see where
you’re going. A discussion with a
bright fire-sign friend (Aries,
Leo and Sagittarius) will illumi-
nate new options.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21).
You’re ready to get real about
what’s not working so that you
can change it. There’s no room
for shame or blame. They only
muddy up your list of what
needs to happen next and next
and next.
CANCER (June 22-July 22).
You’ll celebrate the things you
like. This is more fun with
friends who like the same things.
You’ll get deeper into a topic or
interest and delight in the
details.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22).
You’ll be required to make a
brief tribute to a person, organi-
zation or idea — a kind of toast.
Even though you’re mighty fine
extemporaneously, you’ll do
even better if you rehearse this a
bit.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
You will be admired for your tal-
ent and praised for your ambi-
tion. Before that glorious part of
the day, there’s quite a lot of
work to accomplish, and some
of it is quite physical, so the
proper nutrition and drink will
be key.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).
You feel so appreciative for all
you have. Because you are loving
more about your life, you are
clinging less to your wants and
needs. This easier grip helps
things come to you freely.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21).
You’ll find that someone you
love is further along than you
thought in their evolution
toward a new incarnation. This
will be motivating to you. You’ll
progress quickly, too, once you
decide to.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-
Dec. 21). Even though you’re a
confident person, groups some-
times still give you the jitters.
The good news is, you don’t
have to get over that in order to
make a stellar first impression.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19). Familiarize yourself with a
person’s background and experi-
ences before you attempt to
impress. The most impressive
thing you could do is to remem-
ber the details of his or her
story.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18). You’ll be compelled to do a
few things differently to pull
some romance into your world.
Guided by a strong sense of
whimsy, what you do in the
name of love will surprise even
you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20).
To clean a floor is a fine endeav-
or, but it’s not like finding the
cure for cancer. Around noon, it
will benefit you to stop and
reorder your day. Put the most
time into the most important
and enjoyable tasks.

Editor’s Note: This is the
first in a three-part series
on domestic violence in
Rhode Island.
By RUSS OLIVO
rolivo@woonsocketcall.com
Judging from the entries on
the arrest log, the Woonsocket
Police Department seems to
spend the better part of some
days responding to domestic
assaults and related crimes.
That’s hardly a scientific
assessment, but here’s a way
to put it that is: Adjusted for
population, the WPD arrests
more people for domestic
crimes than any other major
city in the state.
By far.
During the last full year
for which data was available
– 2013 – there were 411
arrests that fell under the
heading of domestic crimes in
Woonsocket, according to
Rachel Orsinger, legislative
coordinator for the Rhode
Island Coalition Against
Domestic Violence.
Coupled with the latest
population statistics from the
U.S. Census Bureau, that
means roughly one in every
99 residents were arrested for
domestic assault or a related
offense. That’s more than
twice the rate of arrests in
most major cities.
The only other city that
even comes close to
Woonsocket is hardly one
thinks of as an inner-city
hotbed of crime, domestic or
otherwise. It’s not Pawtucket
or Central Falls, but Newport
– better known for seaside
mansions and sailing. But the
City by the Sea has the state’s
second-highest rate of domes-
tic assault and related offens-
es – one arrest for every 131
residents in 2013.
Central Falls ranked third,
with a total of 110 arrests in
2013, or one for every 176
residents, still far lower than
Woonsocket. Pawtucket
ranked fourth, with 321
arrests, or 1 for every 221
residents.
Providence was fifth with
783, or one for every 227 res-
idents; Warwick sixth, with
335, or 1 per 243; and
Cranston seventh, with 294,
or 1 per 273.
Another feature of
Woonsocket’s landscape on
domestic violence stands out,
according to Orsinger:
Comparatively fewer victims
of domestic violence from
Woonsocket apply for no
contact orders from the courts
than other communities.
Generally, she says, the
rate of arrests and requests for
no contact orders tracks about
even, but in Woonsocket the
requests for NCOs track clos-
er to one for every other
arrest, a factor that could be
helping drive up the rate of
arrests, she and other advo-
cates for victims say.
“I would challenge
Woonsocket to think about
what it can do to decrease
domestic violence,” says
Vanessa Volz, executive
director of Sojourner House,
a nonprofit organization that
runs a network of shelters for
victims of domestic violence,
including one in Woonsocket.
“Woonsocket should own it
and should think about
addressing why it happens.”
Deborah DeBare, director
of the Rhode Island Coalition
Against Domestic Violence,
says the figures do seem
alarming, but they’re not nec-
essarily proof that women in
Woonsocket are exposed to a
correspondingly higher level
of physical violence.
One theory, as Orsinger
suggests, is that the compara-
tively lower rate of women
from the city who seek pre-
emptive restraining orders is
ratcheting up the arrest rate,
says DeBare. Women typical-
ly seek such orders when they
feel they are in a relationship
that could go bad, or they’ve
already been the target of
threats from an abuser.
Advocates believe such
orders carry value as a deter-
rent because abusers poten-
tially face civil penalties for
breaking them.
When women are not cov-
ered by a protective order,
they may be at an increased
risk of abuse, and conse-
quently tend to rely on the
police more frequently as a
protective avenue of first
resort.
“There’s no question the
arrests are real, but I would
caution anyone against jump-
ing to the conclusion that
there’s a higher prevalence
rate of domestic violence,”
she says. “That’s a different
question than are people get-
ting arrested, and it’s one that
would require further study to
answer.”
Poor access to transporta-
tion is one of the most oft-
cited impediments for women
who might otherwise seek a
restraining order. Applications
for restraining orders are
available only through the
Garrahy Judicial Complex in
Providence, a 30-mile round
trip. For many poor women
forced to rely on public trans-
portation, it’s a trip they’re
just not going to make.
As off-the-charts high as
Woonsocket’s numbers seem,
Orsinger says, “We’ve have
no reason to think that they’re
not correct.” The numbers are
compiled by court-based vic-
tims advocates and include all
crimes charged under the
statutory umbrella as domes-
tic offenses, including
assaults, vandalism, choking,
refusal to relinquish a tele-
phone during a family quar-
rel, domestic property dam-
age, and others.
WHILE ALL domestic-
related arrests don’t involve
physical violence,
Woonsocket has seen a string
of incidents recently that have
been marked by egregious
injuries, emotional humilia-
tion and even death.
Reinaldo Diaz, 34, was
arrested last fall on charges
that he sodomized his girl-
friend and forced her to eat
food in which he had urinated
while her four-year-old son
was forced to watch. Agrand
jury indicted him on 15
counts in January, including
eight counts of rape.
Leopoldo Belen, 33,
allegedly held his girlfriend
prisoner in a bathroom on
April 1 while he beat, choked
and raped her with a bottle
before she escaped. He’s is
facing eight counts, including
domestic kidnapping, domes-
tic rape and domestic strangu-
lation.
Catherine Salvi, a 24-year-
old mother of a small boy,
paid the ultimate price for a
victim of domestic violence
on Jan. 5. After she lay in a
coma for three weeks, she
died at Rhode Island Hospital
as a result of blunt force head
injuries allegedly inflicted
upon her by her boyfriend,
Emmanuel “Manny” Algaria,
22, in their apartment on
Manville Road. He has since
been indicted for murder, the
city’s first domestic homicide
since 2009.
The area just chalked up
another domestic homicide
when 42-year-old Shelina
Moreino was beaten to death
by her boyfriend, Robert
Bethea, 45, in their Central
Falls apartment on Mother’s
Day.
As they often do in such
cases, RICADV issued a
statement upon the occasion
of Moreino’s death, calling it
“a grievous reminder that
domestic violence is perpe-
trated every day in Rhode
Island behind closed doors by
abusers seeking to control
their partners.”
“It is taking place in every
community in our state, and
it’s happening to all kinds of
Rhode Islanders, regardless of
race, age, sexual orientation,
religion, or socioeconomic
status.’
But the kind of violence
that claimed the lives of Salvi
and Moreino doesn’t just
break out all at once, says
Chondra Straton, a law
enforcement advocate who
works with victims in several
Woonsocket-area communi-
ties.
Most often, physical vio-
lence comes at the end of a
slow accretion of abusive
behaviors that gradually esca-
lates from disrespect to physi-
cal contact.
“Aperson doesn’t just
come home one day and
punch a victim in the face for
no reason,” she says. “When
abuse does happen, most of
the time it’s been building up
for a while. Alot of times
people don’t even recognize it
as abuse because there’s been
such a slow buildup.”
Sometimes victims don’t
even call the police, she says.
Aneighbor hears a loud noise
or an argument and that’s
how the police find out.
Women may make up the
overwhelming majority of
victims of domestic violence.
But a significant number of
victims are men, and they’re
even less likely to report an
incident of aggression than
women, the police say.
They worry going to the
police will make them seem
unmanly, says Detective Sgt.
Michael Villiard.
“It works both ways,” he
says.
Despite the comparatively
high rate of domestic assaults
in Woonsocket, Volz cautions
against reading too much into
the figures for any one com-
munity. It’s possible they
could be a red flag that points
to a systemic or demographic
problem and, like DeBare,
she says they warrant further
study.
Poverty, substance abuse,
mental health issues and
unemployment are often cited
by professionals as causal
factors driving the high rate
of domestic assault. Often
one hears professionals give
the same sorts of answers
doctors give for explaining
the high rate of PTSD or
ADHD: We’re better trained
to identify the problem than
ever, and victims are more
inclined to report it.
But Volz says, “The num-
ber one reason it keeps hap-
pening is because it’s tolerat-
ed.” Changing attitudes that
could reduce the incidence of
domestic violence is as big a
challenge as changing popu-
lar culture, she says. Our
movies, video games and
music often glamorize vio-
lence, if not against women,
then just plain violence.
“We still do live in a socie-
ty with certain expectations of
women that contributes to
domestic violence,” says
Volz.
While the frequency of
domestic assault in
Woonsocket may be discour-
aging, Volz says the mere fact
that that the police are
involved is a plus when it
comes to changing public
perceptions about what’s
acceptable behavior.
“Getting the police to
respond is important not just
because they’re intervening in
a potentially violent situation,
but it sends the message that,
as a society, domestic vio-
lence is wrong and it’s some-
thing that the big institutions
of power, like the police,
aren’t going to tolerate it.”
The police also serve as an
iron curtain of protection
between the victim and the
abuser until one of them
removes themselves from
their dangerous liaison. Most
victims of domestic violence
maintain their relationships
with an abuser after repeated
incidents of abusive behavior.
“One statistic that comes
to mind is that it has to hap-
pen seven times before a vic-
tim will leave an abuser,” she
says.
While it’s safe to say that
every member of the
Woonsocket Police
Department has some first-
hand knowledge of the nature
of the domestic violence
problem in the city, few have
the bird’s eye view of Sgt.
Villiard. The department’s
prosecuting officer, he’s in
charge of presenting all
offenders in Sixth District
Court for their initial appear-
ance, including those accused
of domestic assault and relat-
ed crimes.
Though he hasn’t done a
formal survey, Villiard does-
n’t argue with the proposition
that domestic assault, and the
long list of related offenses
now grouped under the ban-
ner of domestic crimes, now
take up the lion’s share of the
department’s resources.
Not long ago, on a typical-
ly busy Monday in Sixth
District Court, Villiard said he
presented 24 defendants for
arraignment and a third of
them were in custody on
domestic assault or related
charges.
But Villiard isn’t com-
plaining. As Volz suggests,
Villiard says the police see
themselves as a bulwark that
stands between victims and
offenders.
“First contact is always
basically to protect the vic-
tim,” says Villiard.
And, while it may not
have been the case years ago,
when family violence was
often viewed as a problem for
the parish priest, the police
embrace their role as a sort of
intake service for funneling
abusers into treatment. The
goal isn’t to break up families
that don’t want to be broken
up or even, necessarily, to
punish offenders, but trying
to figure out what’s triggering
their abusive behavior.
RICADV’s Orsinger says
that nearly 70 percent of all
domestic assault charges were
eventually dismissed in 2013,
but Villiard says it’s rare that
any domestic assault case is
withdrawn during a victim’s
initial appearance in court.
Often, however, it happens by
the time of an offender's sec-
ond court appearance. By
then, there’s usually been an
assessment of the offender to
determine the cause of his or
her assaultive behavior, and
the charges are withdrawn
only on condition that the
perpetrator agrees to enter
into some kind of treatment,
whether it’s anger manage-
ment, substance abuse coun-
seling, or some other regi-
men.
“There’s always an under-
lying reason why someone
turns to assaultive behavior,”
says Villiard. “That’s why we
try to target the underlying
problem. The victim can’t
just say they want to drop the
complaint.”

For Lions,
it’s time
to roar
Led by Wahl, Lincoln seeks
elusive state title this week
at Cranston Country Club
By JON BAKER
jbaker@pawtuckettimes.com
LINCOLN — One thing has eluded Lincoln High’s links-
men since the school began competing in the Rhode Island
Interscholastic Golf Tournament decades ago, and that's a
team championship.
Head coach Nick Maresca has mentored plenty of talented
golfers over the years whom he believed had the collective
wherewithal to change that trend, but none more so than his
current group. It will initiate that process when the Lions tee
it up for the two-day event beginning Tuesday morning at
Cranston Country Club.
“I’ve got a great group of seniors who have fantastic golf
games, and I believe they have the ability to shoot the num-
bers capable of winning it; if there’s any year to do it, this is
it.” stated Maresca, who has led the Lions for eight years now.
“My roster is complete with five 12th-graders and a sopho-
more who have the potential to play well and be contenders
for the team title next week. I truly believe that.”
If he sounds confident, he should. His squad posted a per-
fect 14-0 mark to claim the Northern Division crown over
three-time champion Mount St. Charles (12-2), and is one of
only three unbeaten, untied teams across the Ocean State.
The others include Moses Brown, who took the Western
Division title at 16-0; and Hendricken, who did the same in
the Eastern.
Then there’s the fact that senior captain Jon Wahl – who
plans on furthering his academic and golf careers at
Providence College later this summer – led all competitors
during the first round of last year’s tourney with an even-par
71.
He, however, ballooned to a 79 in the final round and
closed with a 150; that was good for third behind eventual
champion Dave Kraunelis of Barrington (his second straight
title) and Portsmouth runner-up Jake Bauer. Wahl tied for the
No. 3 position with Barrington's John Howell.
With Kraunelis and Howell having graduated, the field is
wide open for a new champ.
“Jon missed one match at mid-season due to personal rea-
sons, but he’s been playing really well since then,” Maresca
noted of Wahl, who has averaged two-over per nine-hole
match this spring, though managed an even-par 35 at Country
View Golf Course just two weeks ago.
“I’ve never seen him so focused; he’s having a good time
out there,” he added. “It seems like he’s having fun again, not
getting caught up in other things in his life.”

A year ago as a junior, Lincoln’s Jon Wahl, pictured above draining a putt during the 2013 season, was the first-round
leader at the R.I. Interscholastic League’s State Golf Championships. His two-stroke lead disappeared on the second day
as Wahl settled for third place. Back for one final go around as a high school competitor at Cranston Country Club, Wahl
and his Lincoln teammates hope to make a splash at states beginning Tuesday.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP)
— Stuck in their longest skid in 20
years, the Boston Red Sox didn't
like the way they played. They did-
n't appreciate how the Tampa Bay
Rays acted, either.
The World Series champions lost
their 10th straight game and
brawled with the Rays during an 8-
5 defeat Sunday.
Rays pinch-hitter Sean
Rodriguez connected for a tiebreak-
ing, three-run homer in the seventh.
Later in the inning, Yunel Escobar
hit a two-run double and then took
third on defensive indifference, set-
ting off the fracas.
"There were some words
exchanged," Red Sox manager John
Farrell said. "We're down five in the
seventh, so it's somewhat a gray
area when you shut down the run-
ning game."
"Yunel is going to do some
things that might be a little unpre-
dictable, so that's what precipitated
it," said Farrell, who formerly man-
aged Escobar in Toronto.
Farrell admitted that Boston's

Josh Beckett pitches
first career no-hitter
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Josh
Beckett started talking about throwing a
no-hitter in the fourth inning, ignoring
traditional superstitions and making his
catcher nervous in the process.
The big, folksy Texan had stuff that
was too dominant to worry about a jinx.
Beckett pitched the first no-hitter of
his stellar career and the first in the
majors this season, leading the Los
Angeles Dodgers over the Philadelphia
Phillies 6-0 on Sunday.
A year ago, Beckett was nearly
derailed by a nerve condition that left him
unable to feel his fingertips. On this day,
he was downright nasty.

Staff reports
n a day when three class
meets were taking place in
three different corners of
the state, Woonsocket
High made the most news
at the Class A
Championships at Tucker Field.
Northeastern University-bound
Connor Fugere was the only local athlete
to place in the top four in four different
field events, doing so with his victories
in the discus (130-10) and hammer
(195-6), runner-up finish in the shot put,
and fourth place in the javelin.
Finishing second in the hammer was
Fugere’s teammate, Jared Briere, and
his throw of 179-3 was the best hammer
throw in the country by a ninth grader,
reported his coach, George Briggs.
On the girls’ side, Quinn Harlen con-
tinued her phenomenal freshman season
by clocking a time of 12.1 seconds in
the semifinal heat of the 100 dash that
set a new school record that was for-
merly held by 1994 graduate Audree
Miller (:12.2). Harlen ended up taking
second in that event.
Her time in the 200 (:26.5), which
was good for fifth place, broke another
school record that was formerly held by
Kaylynn Pitts (:26.6) in 2012.
Several area athletes also won their
respective events. In the Class A meet,
Cumberland’s Jordan Zerva captured
the boys’ pole vault, Meaghan Scullin
won the girls’ high jump, and Nichole
Barger claimed the girls’ 800, and in the
Class C meet at Ponaganset, Mount St.
Charles’ Chris Miele took first in the shot
put.

O
Novans’ Fugere shines at class meet
Lincoln boys finish fourth in Class B
slide may have also "boiled over a little bit."
Escobar, Rodriguez and Boston's Jonny
Gomes were all ejected.
Rays manager Joe Maddon didn't quite
agree with Farrell's assessment of baseball's
unwritten rules.
"Last year in the playoffs, they had a 8-2
lead in the eighth when (Jacoby) Ellsbury led
off with a single and then stole second base,"
Maddon said, correctly recalling what hap-
pened in the division series opener. "I think that
was a little more egregious than their interpre-
tation of what happened today."
"Before you start screaming about any of
that, just understand what happened just last
year, and also understand in this ballpark, five-
run leads can evaporate very quickly," he said.
This is Boston's longest losing streak since
an 11-game slump from June 8-19, 1994.
The Red Sox have been outscored 52-24
over their last 10 games. World Series MVP
David Ortiz is hitting .118 and has no RBIs in
that span.
"The effort is there," Red Sox second base-
man Dustin Pedroia said. "The performance is
not. So, we got to be better. It starts tomorrow."
Boston will try to end the drought on
Monday afternoon when it plays at Atlanta.
Xander Bogaerts hit a two-run single with
two outs in the Boston ninth off Josh Lueke.
Grant Balfour got his ninth save by retiring
Pedroia on a grounder.
Gomes pulled Boston even at 3 with a two-
run, pinch-hit homer in the seventh off Joel
Peralta (2-3).
After Craig Breslow (2-1) walked pinch-hit-
ter Desmond Jennings and gave up Evan
Longoria's single to start the seventh,
Rodriguez gave the Rays a 6-3 advantage.
Escobar doubled and easily took third with-
out a throw on the first pitch to Jose Molina.
Escobar got into a yelling match with the
Boston dugout and had to be restrained just
before both benches and bullpens emptied. The
sides gathered around third base for a short ses-
sion that mostly involved pushing and shoving.
"I'm not concerned about the bag at all," said
Gomes, who sprinted into the fray from left
field. "Yelling at my dugout, pointing at my
dugout and taking your helmet off and basical-
ly challenging our dugout, I have a problem
with that."
Escobar issued a statement through the
Rays, saying that "as far as I'm concerned, it's
over."
"They took offense to what we thought was
fine," Rays third base coach Tom Foley said.
"They called him out and he talked back to
them and the next thing you know, benches
cleared."
Longoria hit a leadoff homer and Logan
Forsythe had an RBI single as the Rays took a
2-1 lead in the fourth.
Wil Myers made it 3-1 on a run-scoring
grounder in the fifth.
Brandon Workman, recalled from Triple-A
Pawtucket before the game, gave up three runs
and five hits over five innings in his first big
league start this season. He made three relief
appearances with Boston earlier this year
before being optioned to Pawtucket on April 8.
Rays starter Jake Odorizzi allowed one run
and four hits in six innings.
***
NOTES: Boston put 1B Mike Napoli on the
15-day disabled list with a sprained finger on
his left hand. ... Rays RHP Jeremy Hellickson
(arthroscopic right elbow surgery) threw bat-
ting practice for the second and is set to pitch in
a simulated game Wednesday. He expects to
return before the All-Star break. ... Tampa Bay
2B Ben Zobrist (dislocated left thumb) hit
against Hellickson and hopes to come off the
disabled list next weekend. ... Farrell said Ortiz
will play first base in at least once in the two-
game interleague series against the Braves.
"I was joking about it because I was
waiting for them to get a hit," Beckett
said. "You don't think at this point of your
career that you're going to do that. I just
don't feel that my stuff is good enough to
do that. I'm probably as hard on myself as
anybody."
Beckett stuck out six, walked three and
didn't come close to allowing a hit against
a lineup that included two former NL
MVPs and four former All-Stars. Beckett
has credentials, too: Athree-time All-Star,
he also was a World Series MVP.
The 34-year-old right-hander threw
128 pitches. He fanned five-time All-Star
Chase Utley on a called strike three to end
the game.
"It's very special. It takes really good
defense behind you, a little luck sprinkled
in and making pitches when you need to
make pitches," Beckett said. "That's a
good-hitting team you don't take lightly."
Beckett mixed a sharp fastball with a
slow, deceptive curve that kept hitters off-
balance while retiring 23 straight batters
at one stretch. He pitched the Dodgers'
first no-hitter since Hideo Nomo beat
Colorado at Coors Field in 1996.
with 555 home runs in 2,302 games covering
19 major league seasons. Seven of those were
in Boston, where Cubs executive Theo
Epstein was the general manager of two Red
Sox clubs that won it all with Ramirez playing
a key role and earning a World Series MVP
award.
"While Manny is not and will not be a fit
on the Cubs' major league roster, we do think
at this stage of his life he's a nice fit as a men-
tor for some of the young talented hitters we
have in the organization," Epstein said in a
statement. "Manny will coach full-time and
play part-time in a limited role that does not
take at-bats away from our prospects.
"If he shows there is still some magic in his
bat, perhaps he will find his way to the major
leagues and help another team, but that is not
why he is here. We are thrilled that he wants
to work with our young hitters and make a dif-
ference."
Ramirez most recently played in the big
leagues in 2011, with Tampa Bay. The 12-time
All-Star had a minor league with Texas before
the Rangers released him last August.
"I'm at the stage of my life and career
where I really want to give something back to
the game that I love — the game that has
meant so much to me and done so much for
me and my family," he said in a release. "I
know I am nearing the end of my playing
days, but I have a lot of knowledge to pass on
to the next generation — both what to do and
what not to do."
Ramirez was suspended for 50 games in
2009 while with the Los Angeles Dodgers
after testing positive for a banned drug. He
retired in April 2011 instead of serving a 100-
game ban for a second positive test while with
Tampa Bay, but later agreed to a reduced 50-
game suspension and played in the minors for
Oakland in 2012.
The teaching role for Ramirez is a bit of a
gamble for Epstein, who is depending on
Chicago's rich farm system to turn around the
floundering franchise. The Cubs lost 197
games over the previous two seasons, and
began Sunday in last place in the NL Central
with an 18-29 record.
"The reality is he is a great, great hitter who
can provide valuable insight and knowledge,"
Chicago manager Rick Renteria said before
the game at San Diego.
Chicago's top hitting prospects at Iowa
include infielders Arismendy Alcantara and
Javier Baez, a first-round pick in 2011 who is
off to a slow start after he was a late cut by the
Cubs following a solid spring training.
Third baseman Kris Bryant, the No. 2 over-
all selection in last year's draft, is one of the
top hitters in the Double-A Southern League
and could make it to Iowa by the end of the
season.
"The Cubs have some very talented young
hitters, and I would love nothing more than to
make a positive impact on their careers,"
Ramirez said. "I am passionate about baseball
and about hitting, and I have a lot to offer.
While I would love to return to the major
leagues, I leave that in God's hands. My focus
will be on working with the young hitters,
making sure they don't make the same mis-
takes I made, and helping the team any way I
can."

Beckett tosses no-no at Phillies’ expense
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) —
Ryan Hunter-Reay peeked
around Helio Castroneves,
then reversed course and
dipped inside for a daredevil
pass and the lead in the
Indianapolis 500.
Castroneves charged back
to the front, winning a drag
race down the frontstretch at
Indianapolis Motor
Speedway. And then, in a stir-
ring wheel-to-wheel battle
between a pair of bright yel-
low cars, Hunter-Reay seized
the lead once more Sunday as
the drivers hurtled across the
Yard of Bricks with a single,
2.5-mile lap remaining.
With nobody in front of
him, Hunter-Reay used the
entire track to keep
Castroneves in his rearview
mirror. He nipped him at the
line by less than half a car
length, denying his Brazilian
rival a chance at history
Sunday and becoming the
first American in eight years
to win the Indy 500.
"The Greatest Spectacle in
Racing" had lived up to its
nickname.
"This race was ridiculously
close and competitive,"
Hunter-Reay said. "Just glad I
picked the right time to go."
The finish was well worth
the wait — to the fans who
watched 150 laps of caution-
free racing, to the drivers who
bided their time unsure of
when they should charge to
the front and to Hunter-Reay,
who finally got to drink the
celebratory milk in his sev-
enth try. He beat Castroneves
by just 0.060 seconds — only
the 1992 race had a closer fin-
ish when Al Unser Jr. beat
Scott Goodyear by 0.043 sec-
onds. "I'm a proud American
boy, that's for sure," Hunter-
Reay said in Victory Lane
before he was joined by his
wife and son. "I've watched
this race since I was sitting in
diapers on the floor in front of
the TV. My son did it today.
He watched me here. I'm
thrilled. This is American his-
tory, this race. This is
American tradition."
He was serenaded by
chants of "USA! USA!" as he
made his way around the post-
race celebrations. He was
joined by son Ryden, born
shortly after Hunter-Reay's
2012 IndyCar championship
and wearing a miniature ver-
sion of his father's firesuit as
his parents kissed the bricks.
Castroneves, trying to become
the fourth driver to win a
fourth Indianapolis 500, set-
tled for second. He needed
several moments to compose
himself, slumped in his car,
head down and helmet on.
The Brazilian said a caution
with 10 laps to go broke his
rhythm as red flag came out
so track workers could clean
debris and repair a track wall.
"It was a great fight," he
smiled. "I tell you what, I was
having a great time.
Unfortunately, second. It's
good, but second sucks, you
know what I mean?"
Marco Andretti finished
third and Carlos Munoz was
fourth as Andretti Autosport
had three cars in the top four,
as well as the winner. Kurt
Busch, also in a Honda for
Andretti, finished sixth in his
first race of the day. He left
immediately for a flight after
the race and arrived about an
hour later in North Carolina
for Sunday night's Coca-Cola
600, hoping to become just
the second driver to complete
the 1,100-mile Double in one
day.

BRYANT UNIVERSITY ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT photo
Vaughn Hayward, a 2009 graduate of Mount St. Charles and senior starting pitcher at Bryant
University, tossed 6.1 scoreless innings, allowing just five hits and issuing two walks as the
Bulldogs captured their second straight Northeast Conference tournament title with a 6-2 vic-
tory over Sacred Heart on Saturday. Bryant will find out its first-round opponent and where it
will play in the NCAA tournament Monday, when the field of 64 teams is announced.
Among the other soon-to-be graduates who
he hopes will pace his squad include James
Isabella, whose best score (two-over 37) came
at Melody Hill Golf Course in a contest
against Ponaganset and North Smithfield; Val
Dumont, who managed a one-over 36 at his
Kirkbrae CC home and averages 41 per nine;
twin brother Vic Dumont, whose top round
was a six-over 41 at the same; and sophomore
Jake Laverdiere.
“Jake has the potential to go out and shoot
in the high 70s at Cranston,” Maresca
explained. “He started out hot, then cooled off
a bit, but he’s regained his touch and his focus.
He actually shot 37 at Lincoln Country Club
(Wednesday) in practice, and he’s been look-
ing good.
“I still haven’t decided who will play the
No. 6 spot; it’s between three seniors – Eric
Zannini, Ryan Majeau and Tyge Joyce. When
I do, it’ll go to the guy who’s playing the most
consistent.”
During the team segment of the state event,
there will be a cut after the opening day, and –
as is usually the case – any contingent within
15 strokes of No. 1 will qualify to play the sec-
ond morning.
The low four scores among each team’s six
count toward the team total.
Barrington took the state championship last
year with a 606 over the two rounds, while
Hendricken placed a distant second (629);
Chariho third (633); and North Kingstown
fourth (654).
The Lions took ninth overall with a 332
after the first day.
“We didn’t have a good showing at all,”
Maresca said of the 2013 tourney. “It may
have been because they were a bit inexperi-
enced as a team. When it comes to the states,
I don’t think the guys as a group had enough
confidence from top to bottom.
“I told them right from the beginning of
(this) season, ‘Play smart, and think through
each and every shot. Make smart club choices,
gage the distances and take your time. Don’t
rush things,’” he added. “A lot of that comes
from the fact that we play a lot of shorter
courses during the season, and on some of the
holes, they don’t have to go for it. They don’t
have to use driver.
“I asked them to have a game plan to navi-
gate the course, not try to bully it and break
par; the birdies and pars will come to those
who are patient.”
***
Maresca nevertheless expressed concern
with the talent representing Hendricken,
Moses Brown and La Salle.
“I know La Salle’s Matt Corio will be a
contender for the individual title, as he’s capa-
ble of shooting in the low 70s, and his team-
mate – (junior) Sebastian Tonkovich – could
do the same,” he stated. “His game has
improved a lot from last year.
“Hendricken has a senior named Justin
Matrone, and he’s another guy who I think can
play better than what he’s shown.”
Bauer will be a mainstay for the Patriots, as
will teammate Katie Um. Bauer led the state
in stroke average per nine (36.85) this spring,
with Wahl second (38.00) and Um third
(39.37).
Still, Maresca think there are dark horses,
such as the Quakers’Will Dickson; Coventry’s
Jake Anderson; and Ben Rauh of
Narragansett.
The Mariners and Knotty Oakers tied for
the Southern Division championship with 11-
2-1 records.
Then again, he hasn’t forgotten about the
abilities of those playing for league foe Mount
St. Charles, which took second behind the
Lions at 12-2. (Its lone two defeats came
against Maresca’s crew).
Like Lincoln, the Mounties are loaded with
seniors, among them No. 1 Tom Crudele, fol-
lowed by Sam Lombardi, Devin Votta and
Ryan Badeau.
Crudele finished 9-4-1 against divisional
rivals with a 40.8 per-round average, while
Lombardi posted a 13-1 mark at a team-best
40.2. Votta closed at 8-6 while playing either
No. 3 or 4, and Badeau 11-3 with a stroke
average of approximately 43.
“Tom has all the tools to go out and do
something special,” said head coach Mike
Masterson. “He’s been a four-year starter, and
he's gone 39-12 in that time. Sam is 26-2 over
the past two years at No. 2, so either one could
surprise some people.
“Badeau and Votta have come on as well,”
he continued. “Votta had a two-over 37 at
Country View in his last match. Those are all
reasons I believe we could so some damage at
states. Between those four kids, (junior)
Patrick Holmes and (sophomore) Sam
Maceroni, they will carry us to where ever
we’re going to finish.
“I have a lot of confidence in all of them …
I think both of us from the North could be
right there in the hunt, but we have to do it on
the golf course. Our top five, over the last four
years, have a (dual-match) record of 50-5-1.
They’ve also won three Northern champi-
onships, so they’re used to success.”
Mentioned Maresca: “We knew going into
the season that Mount would be our main
competition. They’ve got two really good
players in Crudele and Lombardi, and they
have a great supporting cast. It's all about
playing with confidence.
“One thing’s for sure: It’s going to be an
interesting couple of days.”

May 26
1925 — In Detroit's 8-1 win over the Chicago White Sox, Ty Cobb becomes the first to collect 1,000 career
extra-base hits. He finished his career with 1,139.
1959 — Harvey Haddix of the Pittsburgh Pirates pitches 12 perfect innings before losing to the Milwaukee
Braves, 1-0 in the 13th on an error, a sacrifice and Joe Adcock's double.
1985 — Danny Sullivan misses almost certain disaster and holds off Mario Andretti and the rest of the fastest
field in auto racing to win the Indianapolis 500. On the 119th lap, Sullivan spins his racer 360 degrees, nar-
rowly avoiding both the wall and Andretti.
1987 — Boston's Larry Bird steals an inbounds pass from Detroit's Isiah Thomas and feeds over his shoul-
der to a cutting Dennis Johnson for the winning basket as the Celtics pulls out an improbable 108-107 win
over Detroit in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
1988 — The Edmonton Oilers, with MVP Wayne Gretzky leading the way, beat the Boston Bruins 6-3 to
complete a four-game sweep and win their fourth Stanley Cup in five years.
1991 — Rick Mears passes Michael Andretti with 12 laps to go and wins his fourth Indianapolis 500, by 3.1
seconds. Mears joins A.J. Foyt and Al Unser as the only four-time winners.
1994 — Haiti's Ronald Agenor wins the longest match since the French Open adopted the tiebreaker.
Agenor takes the 71st and final game of a second-round match with David Prinosil of Germany. His five-
hour, 6-7 (4-7), 6-7 (2-7), 6-3, 6-4, 14-12 victory involves the most games in a French Open match since
1973.
2000 — New Jersey finishes the greatest comeback in a conference final when the Devils win the last three
games of the series, beating the Flyers 2-1 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final. Patrik Elias scores
his second goal of the game with 2:32 to play for the win.
2004 — Andy Roddick loses at the French Open — to Frenchman Olivier Mutis, who is ranked 125th. With
the five-set loss, Roddick joins Andre Agassi and eight other compatriots on the way home, making it the
first Grand Slam tournament in more than 30 years without a U.S. man in the third round.
2005 — Americans Andy Roddick, James Blake and Vince Spadea fail to make it through the opening week
at the French Open. For the second year in a row — and the second time at a Grand Slam event in more
than 30 years — no American man makes it out of the second round.
2008 — Syracuse wins its 10th NCAA men's lacrosse championship, beating defending champion Johns
Hopkins 13-10 behind three goals from Dan Hardy. The crowd of 48,970 at Foxborough, Mass., is the
largest to see an NCAA championship outdoors in any sport — the BCS football championship game isn't
an NCAA event.
2012 — Toronto FC ends its MLS record nine-game losing streak to open a season with a 1-0 win over the
Philadelphia Union on a late goal by Danny Koevermans.
2013 — Tony Kanaan ends years of frustration by finally winning the Indianapolis 500. Kanaan drives past
Ryan Hunter-Reay on a restart with three laps to go, then coasts across the finish line under yellow when
defending race winner Dario Franchitti crashes far back in the field. The Brazilian finished second in 2004
and twice finished third.

What to watch Monday at the French Open
PARIS (AP) — Here are two things to look for on Monday
at the French Open:
NADAL PLAYS: Rafael Nadal will start his pursuit of a
record ninth French Open title Monday on Court Suzanne
Lenglen, the No. 2 court at Roland Garros.
Nadal had the day off Sunday, so nobody knows how he
feels about being denied a spot in the main stadium, Court
Philippe Chatrier. American player John Isner, however,
thought it was an interesting decision.
"That's really bizarre. I mean, how many times does the
guy have to win the tournament to be able to have his first
match on Chatrier?" Isner said after winning his opening
match Sunday. "But I don't think Rafa really cares that
much. He's just going to go out there and try to win."
Nadal will open this year's tournament against Robby
Ginepri of the United States.
The top-seeded Spaniard is 59-1 at Roland Garros, with
his only loss coming in the fourth round in 2009. Before
that, he had won four straight French Open titles. And
since then, he has won another four.
DJOKOVIC GETS GOING: Novak Djokovic still needs to
win the French Open to complete a career Grand Slam,
and he'll get going Monday against Joao Sousa of
Portugal.
Djokovic has been sidelined for part of the season with a
right wrist injury, but he returned to action and beat Nadal

Skid hits seven for PawSox
Staff reports
SYRACUSE — Syracuse first-baseman Brock Peterson
drilled a two-out, go-ahead three-run home run in the eighth
inning to cap a run of eight unanswered runs that gave the Chiefs
a come-from-behind 10-9 victory over the Pawtucket Red Sox
Sunday night at NBT Bank Stadium to complete a sweep in the
four-game series.
Pawtucket (25-26) held an 8-2 lead after 5 ½ innings, but
Syracuse (27-22) scored four runs in the sixth, one in the seventh
and three more in the eighth against Dalier Hinojosa (0-3) to earn
a sixth-consecutive win. The PawSox lost their seventh game in
a row and tenth in their last 12 games played.
Pawtucket plated a run in the ninth inning and had runners on
first and second with only one out, but veteran closer Mike
Gonzalez entered and struck out Corey Brown. Gonzalez then
induced a ground out from Alex Hassan to end the game, with
Chiefs shortstop Manny Burris making a terrific play from deep
in the hole to get the final out at first.
Hinojosa walked two batters in the eighth, Jose Lozada to
lead off the inning and then Steven Souza two outs later to put
two runners on base. Peterson then clobbered a 3-1 pitch well
over the fence in left for his fifth long ball of the season to give
the Chiefs their first lead of the night at 10-8.
After being held to only two runs in the first 30 innings of the
series by Syracuse pitching, Pawtucket erupted for eight runs
against Chiefs reliever Josh Roenicke in the fourth (two runs),
fifth (two runs) and sixth (four runs) innings. Corey Brown’s
two-run blast to right field opened the scoring.
