Fung enters governor’s race
Local and wire reports
NEW YORK (AP) — Twitter faces skepticism from potential investors and the broader public ahead of its initial public offering, according to an Associated PressCNBC poll released Monday. Some 36 percent of Americans say buying stock in the 7-year-old short messaging service would be a good investment, while 47 percent disagree. Last May, ahead of Facebook's IPO, 51 percent of Americans said Facebook Inc. would be a good investment. Just 31 percent didn't agree. Twitter plans to make its Wall Street debut this week and surprisingly, 52 percent of people ages 18 to 34 say investing in the company's stock is not a good idea. Twitter Inc. will begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday morning after setting a price for its IPO.
CRANSTON – Promising to create 20,000 new jobs in his first four years on the job, Cranston Mayor Allan Fung told a crowd of cheering supporters at the recentlyexpanded Taco, Inc. factory on Monday, “I want to be your next governor.” Fung, who is the first ChineseAmerican to run for governor, said he will be the chief economic development officer for the state
and will maintain a “laser-focus on the one thing that counts, job creation. The Republican mayor said he wants to replicate the kind of sucFung cess he has enjoyed in Cranston, where more than 1,000 jobs were created in the hospitality, manufacturing and retail sectors during his tenure. His announcement was held at Taco to

On Day 1, he said, “I will declare Rhode Island open for business” by “removing barriers to get government out of the way so businesses can pursue their ventures.” Part of that strategy would be taxes. Fung said he wants to look at overhauling the state’s “entire tax system, including our sales tax, our corporate tax and our estate tax,” aiming for “fairness and simplicity” in the tax code. He also wants to institute “private-public partnerships,” including

EAST PROVIDENCE – The City Council Tuesday will consider a resolution introduced by Councilman Helder J. Cunha to remove City Manager Peter Graczykowski from office immediately and without cause. The council meets at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, 145 Taunton Avenue. Both Graczykowski’s engagement letter and city bylaws allow the city manager to be removed from office a year after his hire without cause. Graczykowski, who was appointed to city manager in September of 2011, does not have a contract with the city and is considered an employee at

PAWTUCKET—“Youth is wasted on the young” and no one knows that better than those working in law enforcement. Sorting out those teens who commit a crime due to immaturity and who deserve a second chance versus those who are truly delinquent is the goal of the city's Juvenile Hearing Board. It will be 20 years ago this month that Pawtucket's Juvenile Hearing Board was

formed, and the panel of citizens has saved many a youthful offender from having a police record, but more importantly, going on to commit further crimes. The board, which works in conjunction with the Pawtucket Police Department, consists of members of the community who are appointed by Mayor Donald Grebien. City ordinance calls for a minimum of one appointee from each of the six council districts, plus one from at large,
Detective Sgt. Paul Brandley, head of the Pawtucket Police Department's Juvenile Division, and Major Arthur Martins discuss some of the parameters of the city's Juvenile Hearing Board.

it for every child in Rhode Island. Every boy and girl in Rhode Island deserves an education that will provide not only the essential skills, but have a focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics.” But he said he also wants to add robotics and the arts to schools’ core curriculum. “That is what is going to link our students to good paying jobs for the future,” Fung said, adding that “it is time to address that achievement gap between lowincome and minority students and their fellow classmates.” To achieve his education goals, Fung said he wants to make the commissioner of education subordinate to the governor, not the Board of Education. “I support testing,” Fung said, “because any venture in our lives now, especially in the private, professional sector, we are all judged and tested.” Asked if Deborah Gist would remain commissioner under his administration, he said Gist has done “innovative and wonderful things,” but said it is “way too early” to commit to any appointments. He left the door opened for some current directors to be retained, but said they would have to re-apply to him during the appointment process. As part of his personal story, Fung related how his parents, who were on the stage with him on Monday, emigrated from Hong Kong to Providence, moving “half-way around the world to begin a new life with the family they were about to start.” He said he learned hard work starting at 9years-old in his family’s restaurant, washing dishes, busing tables and serving customers. Fung, who has more than $300,000 in his campaign warchest, was not specific on how much money he would need for a successful run, but said he will raise as much as is needed. Former Gov. Lincoln Almond,

who was part of Fung’s exploratory committee, liked Fung’s economic proposals. “Manufacturing is still our big job producer. High performing manufacturing is key to jobs in Rhode Island.” When he talks about engineering, education and technical education, he wants to attract highperforming manufacturing into the state and I think he can do it. Woonsocket City Council President John Ward also attended Fung’s announcement, telling The Call he is “absolutely” backing Fung. “I think he has the temperament for the job. Everything he just said makes sense, it fits our future needs.” vote of the City Council in 2002. Now, city residents have requested that the name, in honor of all six of the residents who helped rescue the carousel, be returned to its original name, Crescent Park. The council will consider a third resolution supporting the establishment of the brew pub business to encourage economic growth in East Providence. The number of brew pubs in the United States has grown to over 1,100 creating jobs and economic benefits to the areas that support them. Brew pub licenses are authorized and regulated by statute in Rhode Island and allow the business to manufacture beer on the premises for consumption on the premises. enough, he said. Mayor Donald Grebien said the reason that the city's Juvenile Hearing Board has endured so long “is simply because it works.” He added, “Committed volunteers serve on the board for the good of the community. The parents of the juveniles are directly involved as are the youths themselves who must acknowledge their offenses, which are relatively minor, and perform community service. The result is a second chance for these youths, who must continue to prove themselves to show they've earned it.” Grebien added, “I strongly support the Juvenile Hearing Board, which continues to do outstanding work and has proven itself a great asset to the community.” Diane Dufresne, the director of the Pawtucket Prevention Coalition and a member of the Juvenile Hearing Board for over 15 years, also said she believes strongly in the value of the program. “There is a general permissiveness to society today when kids do things that are wrong. And when they come before the Juvenile Hearing Board, they know they have a chance to not have a record, but they also have to own up. And they get consequences that they have to fulfill. I think that makes an indelible impression.” “We always tell them they're lucky. And I see a lot of very nice kids who really take it to heart. They really think about it the next time,” Dufresne said.
an infrastructure bank for public works projects. He said he opposes tolls on the Sakonnet River Bridge. Fung said he wants to freeze tuitions at the University of Rhode Island, Rhode Island College and the Community College of RI for four years. He said every discussion of education “will start and end with what is best for students. “Education has been the stepping stone to a better life for many generations,” he said. “It was for myself, my two sisters and I want

Cunha could not be reached for comment yesterday to comment on why he introduced the resolution. According to the city charter, Graczykowski’s engagement letter dated September 21, 2011 states that the city manager may be removed without cause after a period of one year from the date of appointment which was a provision

agreed to by Graczykowski predicate to his appointment. The engagement letter further states that by preliminary resolution the council can suspend the manager from duty which was a provision agreed to by the manager. It’s been a bumpy year for Graczykowski who came under fire for putting Police Chief Joseph Tavares on administrative leave. Tavares, the city’s chief of police for the past three-andhalf years, was placed on leave in April while an internal investigation was conducted by Human Resources Director Kathleen Waterbury. The findings of the investigation were later turned over to the stateappointed Budget Commission, which reinstat-
ed Tavares several weeks later after its review of the findings found no wrongdoing on the chief’s part. McAndrew has alleged that the decision to place Tavares on leave came within days after the Budget Commission relinquished control back to the city, and that it is his belief that some members of the City Council put pressure on Graczykowski to take action against the chief of risk not getting a contract. A subsequent State Police probe requested by the Budget Commission found no sufficient facts or probable cause to back up allegations that two members of the City Council unlawfully influenced Graczykowski to place Tavares on paid administrative leave in tive to Rhode Island Family Court. According to Major Arthur Martins, several other municipalities in Rhode Island have such panels, and Pawtucket established its board through legislation passed on Nov. 12, 1993. Martins said the hearing board is aimed at younger teens who are first-time offenders, and the age cutoff is usually well under 18. The types of offenses handled by the board are things like disorderly conduct, vandalism and minor schoolyard fights—as long as the fight didn't rise to the level of an assault. The board, a panel of seven members at a time, meets on the second Thursday of every month at City Hall to hear cases and mete out punishment. “It's meant as an alternative to formal prosecution,” said Martins. “This diversion is the last bite of the apple, so to speak.” He added that to qualify for the hearing board, the offender must be willing to admit to the crime and also to waive his or her right to seek a trial in Family Court. “If someone is adamant that they are not guilty, we would tell them to go to Family Court and have a trial,” he added. The advantage to the juvenile offender who chooses to go through the Juvenile Hearing Board is that there is no police record with the state. The arrest records are kept at the Police Department. But more important, Martins said, is the process itself, which involves the offender
return for an employment contract for Graczkowski. Two weeks ago, Tavares filed a complaint against the city, citing a hostile work environment. More recently, Graczykowski came under fire for including a provision in the Fiscal Year 2013-14 budget draft to give himself and his top aides five-figures raises. The Council voted against the measure, instead approving two percent Cost of Living Adjustments for all nonunion city personnel. In other business tonight, the council will consider a resolution to rename Rose Larisa Memorial Park to Crescent Park. Crescent Park was established on or about 1886 as an amusement park on the writing a letter of apology to the victim and performing community service. More often than not, the act of taking ownership of the wrongdoing and apologizing for it provides valuable selfreflection that has steered many away from a deviant path. Martins estimates the success rate at over 60 percent. It's a one-time diversion, however, and anyone who doesn't complete the sanctions imposed by the hearing board, or who is arrested a second time, goes directly to Family Court. Detective Sgt. Paul Brandley, who heads up the Police Department's Juvenile Division, said the referrals to the Juvenile Hearing Board are handled on a case-by-case basis in accordance with the nature of the crime. He said that he and Detective Chris Lefort from the Juvenile Division typically confer with the offender's family, school officials and the School Resource Officers (SROs) when they make the decision where to send the case. “Sometimes, it's just a matter of a good kid who had a bad day,” said Brandley. He added that the SROs have a good idea of who the kids are who would benefit from their case going before the hearing board rather than to Family Court. Brandley and Martins noted that the atmosphere of the hearing board, which takes place in the Council Chambers, adds a certain formality to the proceedings. Additionally, because the

When Crescent Park was auctioned off, a dedicated group of five local residents, Gail Durfee, Jobelle (Tracy) Aguiar, Richard Lund, Linda McEntee, Robin Peacock and longtime volunteer Rose Larisa rescued the Crescent Park Looff Carousel from being sold. Since then, the Crescent Park Looff Carousel has been fully restored and continues to operate each season with the assistance of the Edward Serowik, Sr. The land and beach adjacent to the Crescent Park Looff Carousel was named Rose Larisa Memorial Park by hearing board generally handles only about a half dozen cases per session, as opposed to Family Court which might hear upwards of 30, the panel spends more time talking to the offender about his or her actions and the impact on the victim. “We involve the family. The offender must appear with a parent or guardian, and they are told they must dress and act respectfully,” said Martins. If there are other issues involved, such as drug or alcohol abuse, or mental health problems, the board will make referrals, although it can't mandate counseling. He added that the panel and police officers also have a private conference with the parent or guardian. Oftentimes, it turn out that the parent is struggling with related issues such as truancy, absenteeism, or staying out late, and the sanctions will involve things like imposing a curfew or involvement in a truancy program, said. Brandley said the offender is always told that this is “a fork in the road” and that they must “make a choice now” about which path to take. He said the board always requires that the offender acknowledge his or her actions and offer an apology to the victim, usually through a written letter. Beyond that, sanctions can range from community service to a fine, depending on the crime. In some cases, such as a kid breaking a neighbor's window, a letter of apology is deemed to be

Giordanos to settle nursing home claims for $1.2 million
PROVIDENCE — A former nursing home executive convicted of embezzlement has agreed to pay $1.2 million to settle claims brought by the federal government, including a nearly $14 mil-
lion judgment for diverting millions from nursing homes to himself and members of his family. The Providence Journal reports Antonio L. Giordano and his family agreed to the settlement last week in U.S. Bankruptcy Court. It must
be approved by a judge. Giordano was convicted of conspiracy and embezzlement for taking millions from his nursing homes — Mount St. Francis Health Center in Woonsocket and Coventry Health Center — even as they were defaulting
on loans from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. He also owed money to the Internal Revenue Service. He filed for bankruptcy in 2011.

Monument to fallen soldier to be dedicated
Spc. Dennis Poulin to be honored at Veterans Day ceremony at Slater Park
PAWTUCKET — Life was no picnic for young Danny Poulin. His father had walked away when he was two and his mother struggled to raise him and his sister with limited means. Yet, Slater Park was the always the place where the city boy could run and play with his friends and enjoy some carefree hours, as well as a “picnic” of sorts—bologna and cheese sandwiches packed by his mom. As such, Slater Park is the perfect site for a memorial to Poulin, who lost his life in 2011 at the age of 26 while serving with the Massachusetts National Guard in Afghanistan. A stone monument honoring Army Specialist Dennis C. Poulin will be dedicated on Veterans Day, Monday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. in a ceremony at the Pawtucket War Veterans Memorial (scallop shell) at the Armistice Boulevard
entrance to the park. “I didn't have much money. But I would pack sandwiches and take both Danny and my daughter Jennifer—his sister—to the park,” recalls Doris Poulin. “When he got older, he'd always be over in the park with his friends. And then later, he would take his own son to the park, “ she added. Specialist Poulin, a Pawtucket native, had been deployed as a gunner with the 181st Regiment of the Massachusetts National Guard during Operation Enduring Freedom when his vehicle overturned in the Konar province of Afghanistan. He was taken to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany where he succumbed to his injuries on March 31, 2011. Doris Poulin said that a close family friend, Louise Legendre, who has worked as a certified nursing assistant at Pawtucket Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation for 30 years, helped organize
a fundraiser to pay for a memorial to the young man who everyone knew as Danny. Legendre “had been a big part of Danny's life,” noted his mother, and with her help, Pawtucket Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation provided space for the fundraiser, as well as the food and all of the cooking. Other financial donations came in from family, friends and members of the community, and Warren Monument contributed to the cost of the stone, Doris Poulin said. The monument will be placed near the Pawtucket War Veterans Memorial, at the entrance to Slater Park. A planned ceremony will include opening and closing prayers, the Pledge of Allegiance and the singing of the National Anthem by 12-year-old Shayna Lemois, who has a brother in active military service overseas. Remarks will be given by Mayor Donald R. Grebien, City Councilor Albert J. Vitali Jr. and Jim Robbins,
president of the Rhode Island Disabled American Veterans. Born Jan. 24, 1985, Danny Poulin left high school to better care for his ailing sister Jennifer and later earned his General Equivalency Diploma which he received from Tolman High School at a graduation ceremony in 2004. Poulin briefly moved to Cumberland where he was raising his young son Nikolous and was residing when he joined the military, later returning to live in Pawtucket. According to his mother, he joined the Army to serve his country while better providing for the future of his family. While in Afghanistan, Specialist Poulin was noted for his constant dedication to the welfare of his fellow soldiers, as his mother related in a posthumous letter to her son. “You were always there if your buddies needed something. You even signed on for another hitch because

Seven ways Saudi Arabia could make things unpleasant for Washington
WASHINGTON — What is happening to the U.S. relationship with Saudi Arabia? Even after loud complaints from top Saudi officials that the longtime alliance was on the rocks, the response of official Washington, outside the punditocracy, was an almost audible yawn. President Barack Obama's administration should not be so quick to dismiss the trouble the Saudis could cause for the United States in the Middle East — or the Saudi royals' determination to cause a shift in U.S. policy. Two articles last month quoted unidentified "European diplomats" who had been briefed by Saudi intelligence maestro Prince Bandar bin Sultan that Riyadh was so upset with Washington that it was undertaking a "major shift" in relations. Saudi Arabia has a litany of complaints about U.S. policy in the Middle East. It faults Washington for pursuing a rapprochement with Iran, for not pushing Israel harder in peace talks with the Palestinians, and for not more forcefully backing efforts to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. Saudi royals are also angry that the United States did not stand behind Saudi support for Bahrain when it crushed an anti-government uprising in 2011, and that Washington has criticized the new Egyptian government, another Saudi ally, for its crackdown on Muslim Brotherhood protesters. Saudi royals have evidently decided that public comments and policy shifts are the only way to convince Washington to alter what they see as its errant path. Bandar's declaration came a few days after the kingdom abruptly decided to reject its election to the U.N. Security Council, claiming it could not tolerate that body's "double standards." As Bandar helpfully pointed out, the incident was "a message for the U.S., not the U.N." According to an official in Washington, Bandar's "briefing" was actually a severalhour conversation with French Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Bertrand Besancenot, who then shared his notes with his European colleagues. Whether Bandar intended to leak his remarks to the media is unclear but the Saudis haven't done anything to wind back his message. Recently, former intelligence chief Prince Turki al-Faisal made many of the same points in an address to the annual Arab-U.S. Policymakers Conference in Washington. It is hard to judge the significance of Prince Turki's remarks, because he was essentially fired as ambassador to Washington in 2007 after falling out with King Abdullah. With a nod toward candor, he made it clear he doesn't have a role in the Saudi government and claimed not to be privy to its official deliberations. However, given his apparent place on the kingdom's limited bench of officials that can explain its stances to the world, Prince Turki's remarks can't be ignored. As he put it, Saudi Arabia "is a peninsula, not an island." This is far from the first crisis the U.S.Saudi alliance has experienced. In early 1939, a Saudi delegation went to Nazi Germany to negotiate an arms agreement, part of which would have been diverted to Palestinian Arabs fighting Jewish immigrants in the British mandate of Palestine. At least some of the Saudi group met Adolf Hitler at his mountain top hideaway at Berchtesgaden. German arms never reached the kingdom — or Palestine — as the Saudis could not afford to consummate the deal. However, King Abdullah still treasures a dagger given as a gift from the Fuhrer himself, and occasionally shows it off to guests. Visiting U.S. officials are briefed in advance so they can display appropriate diplomatic sang-froid if Abdullah points out the memento. But despite the multitude of crises — from the 9/11 hijackers to Saudi pay-offs to Osama bin Laden — past difficulties have been quietly repaired. The operative word here is "quietly" — usually, the general public has not even known of the crisis. Assuming that the Saudi-U.S. relationship is really heading off course, what could go wrong this time? Here are seven nightmare scenarios that should keep officials in the State Department and Pentagon up at night. 1. Saudi Arabia uses the oil weapon. The kingdom could cut back its production, which has been boosted to over 10 million barrels/day at Washington's request, to make up for the fall in Iranian exports caused by sanctions. Riyadh enjoys the revenues generated by higher production, but price hikes caused by tightening supply could more than compensate the kingdom. Meanwhile, a drop in supply will cause the price at the gas pump to spike in the United States — endangering the economic recovery and having an almost immediate impact on domestic public opinion. 2. Saudi Arabia reaches out to Pakistan for nuclear-tipped missiles. Riyadh has long had an interest in Islamabad's nuclear program: The kingdom allegedly partially funded Pakistan's pursuit of a nuclear weapon. In 1999, then Saudi Defense Minister Prince Sultan was welcomed by Pakistani Premier Nawaz Sharif to the Kahuta plant, where Pakistan produces highly enriched uranium. After being overthrown by the military later the same year, Sharif is now back again as prime minister — after spending years in exile in Saudi Arabia. While Islamabad would not want to get in between Riyadh and Tehran, the arrangement could be financially lucrative. It would also help Pakistan out-flank India: If part of Islamabad's nuclear arsenal was in the kingdom, it would effectively make it immune from Indian attack. Alternatively, the kingdom could declare the intention of building a uranium enrichment plant to match Iranian nuclear ambitions — to which, in Riyadh's view, Washington appears to be acquiescing. As
By Simon Henderson
King Abdullah told senior U.S. diplomat Dennis Ross in April 2009, "If they get nuclear weapons, we will get nuclear weapons." 3. Riyadh helps kick the United States out of Bahrain. When Bahrain was rocked by protests in 2011, Saudi Arabia led an intervention by Gulf states to reinforce the royal family's grip on the throne. The Saudis have the leverage, therefore, to encourage Bahrain to force the U.S. Navy Fifth Fleet to leave its headquarters in Manama, from which the United States projects power across the Persian Gulf. It wouldn't be a hard sell: Hardline Bahraini royals are already fed up with American criticism of their domestic crackdown on Shiites protesting for more rights. But it would be a hard landing for U.S. power projection in the Middle East: The current arrangements for the Fifth Fleet would be hard to reproduce in any other Gulf sheikhdom. And it's not without some precedent. Riyadh forced the United States out of its own Prince Sultan air base 10 years ago. 4. The kingdom supplies new and dangerous weaponry to the Syrian rebels. The Saudis are already expanding their intervention against President Bashar Assad's regime, funneling money and arms to hardline Salafist groups across Syria. But they have so far heeded U.S. warnings not to supply the rebels with certain weapons — most notably portable surface-to-air missile systems, which could not only bring down Assad's warplanes but also civilian airliners. Saudi Arabia could potentially end its ban on sending rebel groups these weapons systems — and obscure the origins of the missiles, to avoid direct blame for any of the havoc they cause. 5. The Saudis support a new intifada in the Palestinian territories. Riyadh has long been vocal about its frustrations with the lack of progress on an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal. Palestine was the top reason given in the official Saudi statement rejecting the U.N. Security Council seat. The issue is also close to Abdullah's heart — in 2001, he declined an invitation to Washington due to lack of U.S. pressure on Israel. What's more, Riyadh knows that playing the "Arab" card would be popular at home and across the region. If Saudi Arabia truly feels that the prospect for a negotiated settlement is irreparably stalled, it could quietly empower violent forces in the West Bank that could launch attacks against Israeli forces and settlers — fatally wounding the current mediation efforts led by Secretary of State John Kerry. 6. Riyadh boosts the military-led regime in Egypt. The House of Saud has already turned into one of Egypt's primary patrons, pledging $5 billion in assistance immediately after the military toppled former President Mohammed Morsi. Such support has allowed Egypt's new rulers to ignore Washington's threats that it would cut off aid due to the government's violent crackdown on protesters. By deepening its support, Saudi Arabia could further undermine Washington's attempt to steer Cairo back toward democratic rule. As Cairo moves toward a referendum over a new constitution, as well as parliamentary and presidential elections, Gulf support could convince the generals to rig the votes against the Muslim Brotherhood, and violently crush any opposition to their rule. 7. Saudi Arabia presses for an "Islamic seat" on the U.N. Security Council. The kingdom has long voiced its discontent for the way power is doled out in the world's most important security body. The leaders of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, a bloc of 57 member states designed to represent Muslim issues in global affairs, have called for such an "Islamic seat." The United States and other veto-wielding countries, of course, can be counted on to oppose any effort that would diminish their power in the Security Council. But even if the Saudi plan fails, the kingdom could depict U.S. opposition as anti-Islamic. Such an effort would wreck America's image in the Middle East, and provide dangerous fodder for Sunni extremists already hostile to the United States. While Washington thinks it can call the Saudis' bluff, top officials in the kingdom also appear to believe that the United States is bluffing about its commitment to a range of decisions antagonistic to Saudi interests. The big difference is that the tension in the relationship is the No. 1 priority in Saudi Arabia — but is way down near the bottom of the Obama administration's list of concerns. Simon Henderson is the Baker fellow and director of the Gulf and Energy Policy Program at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
The noise around Obamacare
The ace political and baseball prognosticator Nate Silver titled his book about prediction and statistical mastery “The Signal and the Noise.” Rarely has it been more important to distinguish between the two than in the uproar over the launch of the Affordable Care Act. As Silver put it, “The signal is the truth. The noise is what distracts us from the truth.” The truth about this controversy is that there E.J. Dionne is a broad debate in our country over how much government should do to correct for market outcomes that leave so many Americans without enough income, opportunity or access to the essentials of modern life, notably health insurance. Supporters of Obamacare, including those who wish it had gone even further, believe that social justice requires government to give significant assistance to those who find themselves on the wrong end of an economic system that is producing an increasingly unequal society. Opponents of Obamacare want government to let the market do what the market does. That’s why the program’s critics have not come up with a plausible alternative to covering the uninsured — and why many in their ranks have been trying to hack away at Medicare and Medicaid. Their overarching purpose is to get government out of the way. If the market generates vast inequalities, this must be because such inequalities maximize efficiency. Thus, foes of the new health-care law aren’t against it because its Web site worked badly or because the president once said that everybody could keep their current policies when it turned out that some in the small individual insurance market got cancellation notices. For those trying to kill the law, such noise is designed to distract attention from what they really think, which is that we should let non-elderly Americans sink or swim in the insurance arrangements that existed before Obamacare. This market logic also underlies the GOP’s unconscionable attack on food stamps, known now as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). By helping some 47?million Americans buy food, SNAP does, indeed, intervene in the private marketplace, albeit to the benefit of farmers and grocery stores as well as the poor and near-poor. Such “meddling” violates market dogma, as Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) suggested during a 2011 Republican presidential debate. She is retiring from Congress, which is too bad in a way because she often provides subtitles for conservative arguments by putting into candid words what many on her side say in more guarded language. “If you look at China,” Bachmann said, “they don’t have food stamps. If you look at China, they’re in a very different situation. ... They don’t have the modern welfare state. And China’s growing.” We’ll leave for another day the matter of why Bachmann might want us to model our social policies after those of a one-party communist dictatorship. None of this absolves President Obama or his staff of responsibility for handing some useful tools to those who would build a noise machine around the Affordable Care Act (ACA). No one is more upset about the tech fiasco than those who want the ACA to work. There’s a lesson here that liberals apparently need to learn over and over: Good intentions without proper administration can undermine even the most noble of goals. And a White House that has sometimes played fast and loose with the loyalties of its congressional supporters can illafford to put the more politically vulnerable among them in an exposed position. But panic-induced changes would be the very worst response to the challenges the law faces now. Rather than offer politically convenient delays that could undercut the entire structure of the ACA’s insurance system, those who want more Americans to have health coverage (including Obama himself) need to keep steering the discussion away from the clamor and toward the mission — starting by simplifying and fixing the Web site. It was a Republican senator from Indiana, Homer Capehart, who applied an old saw to the art of salesmanship. “If handed a lemon,” he said in 1944, “make lemonade out of it.” The administration has never adequately defended the law or explained why government will inevitably have to play a larger role in guaranteeing health insurance to all our citizens — as the public sector does in every other wealthy democracy. Now, everyone is paying attention. The way to still the noise is to challenge opponents of Obamacare. Can they really make the case that the country would be better off without it? And what would they do instead?

LINCOLN – Demolition crews Monday were continuing the arduous task of dismantling the burned remains of a vacant mill building inside the historic Lonsdale Bleachery Mill complex. Crews began the demolition work Saturday and as yesterday had torn down nearly a third of a 110-yearold vacant mill on Carrington Avenue, while officials continue to investigate the cause of six-alarm fire that gutted the building last Thursday. Parts of the mill that were the most damaged in Thursday’s fire were razed Saturday, as officials from the local police and fire departments, the state fire marshal’s office and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives examined the site. “The fire is still under investigation by the state Fire Marshal’s Office and the ATF,” said Lonsdale Fire Chief Timothy Griffin, adding the cause of the blaze is still unknown. The fast moving six-alarm fire destroyed about a third of the vacant Dry Can Building, which was already engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived last Thursday afternoon. Fire crews from more than a dozen communities were called in to fight the fire, including Cumberland, Pawtucket and Woonsocket. The fire came in as a box alarm from the mill complex at 5:12 p.m., and could be seen erupting from windows of the 115-yearold Dry Can Building, a largely vacant mill building along the Blackstone River that is owned by TPG Companies. A Lonsdale Bleachery Redevelopment plan commissioned by the town, the John H. Chafee

Blackstone River Valley National Corridor Commission and the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation described the site as semi abandoned with about 50 percent of its mill space redeveloped and still in use by a number of small companies. The complex abuts both the Blackstone Valley Bikeway and the Lonsdale Drive-In Marsh/Wetlands Restoration Project. The complex, along with the nearby Lonsdale Mill Village, is all part of a state Historic District and nationally registered – Joseph Fitzgerald
Discount retailer Building #19 files for bankruptcy
Mass.-based chain has 2 R.I. stores in Pawtucket, Cranston
HINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Boston-area discount retailer Building #19, famous for its comic book-style circulars and the motto “Good Stuff ... Cheap,” is closing its doors after a nearly half-century in business. The Hingham-based company, with 10 stores in Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire, filed for bankruptcy last week. The company is seeking permission to hire a liquidation consultant and close by Dec. 8. The company cited Internet competition and a lack of cash for new inventory as the reasons for the shutdown, according to the Patriot Ledger of Quincy. In the bankruptcy filing, the company says a “decline in sales and the resulting losses” has eroded its working capital and ability to bring in new merchandise. “Building 19's lack of working capital impaired its ability to capitalize on erratic opportunities to purchase inventory,” the company's lawyers said in the filing. Building #19 was co-founded in 1964 by Jerry Ellis, a laid-off appliance salesman. He and partner Harry Andler started by selling a shipment of fire-salvaged furniture from a warehouse in the Old Hingham Shipyard, according to the company website. The building didn't have a name, just a number — 19. “The number 19 on the building became their lucky charm as more insurance companies began to turn to them to unload goods salvaged from fires, floods, hurricanes, railroad accidents and other disasters,” the website says. Over the years the chain evolved to sell overstock, surplus and irregular merchandise, from books to clothes to furniture and rugs. It even sold odd items over the years, including prison uniforms, pedal-powered lawnmowers, and Canadian army motorcycles. Andler died in 1978. Ellis called himself the chain's commander-in-cheap and had a selfdeprecating sense of humor about the no-frills, disorganized stores, which often had shelves made of unfinished plywood propped up by cinder blocks. One recent circular urged shoppers to “Suffer a little. Save a lot.” The chain has stores in Weymouth, Burlington, Natick, Norwood, Haverhill, Hanover and New Bedford, Mass.; Cranston and Pawtucket; and Manchester, N.H.

General Martha Coakley among others. “I applaud the Ethics Commission's interest in resolving this issue and working to remove a barrier to public service,” Wolf said in a statement. Though the panel agreed to re-examine the conflict-ofinterest law at the behest of Wolf and his supporters, Giannotti said the proposed change was not specifically tailored for Wolf. The panel, he said, only agreed to consider a change that would have broader application for all public officials. Under the exemption, contracts with government agencies that began before a person entered public service could be retained, with “safeguards to ensure that they do not use their public positions to advance their business interests,” the draft regulation states. The requirements that con-
tract renewals not be competitively bid and contain standard, non-negotiable terms was meant to ensure that public officials could not use their positions to influence contract awards or terms. Wolf, who was first elected to the Senate in 2010, had pushed for an exemption to the strict conflict-of-interest rules, maintaining that Cape Air's contracts with the Massachusetts Port Authority, the semi-independent public agency that operates Logan, were not competitively bid and that Cape Air paid the same standard fees as any airline. Under the proposed change, a public official must fully disclose any government contracts within 30 days of taking office and “may not in his capacity as a public employee participate in or have official responsibility for any activities of the contracting public agency.”

ing evidence. Assistant District Attorney David O’Sullivan said that releasing the names of students who will testify before the grand jury could prompt the press to interview them, which could influence their testimony or make them afraid to cooperate with authorities. O’Sullivan also argued that Ritzer’s family has a right to privacy. “There is absolutely no evidence of any misconduct or any wrongdoing by Miss Ritzer, of any sort,” he said. Daniel Murphy, an attorney for the Ritzers, said her family “has endured unmentionable pain” and asked that the documents remain sealed, at least for now, so that the family can receive information from the DA’s office before it is reported by the press. “All I can say is that this family needs time to grieve, and that they ought to be afforded that opportunity,” Murphy said after the hearing. Susan Oker, one of Chism’s lawyers, asked that the documents remain sealed until the end of Chism’s trial.
Sens. say new women’s prison planned for Northeast states
Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Federal Bureau of Prisons has agreed to make sure there will continue to be a low-security facility for female inmates in the Northeast, a coalition of U.S. senators from the region said Monday. After announcing in July plans to transfer low-security female inmates at its Danbury prison — currently estimated at 1,337 — to a new federal facility in Aliceville, Ala., in order to make room for male prisoners, the bureau now plans to build a new low-security prison for women on the Danbury grounds, the senators said. The reversal came after Northeast senators raised concerns about not having a facility for females in the region and the fact inmates would be moved far from their families. We believe it made no sense to leave the Northeast without any federal facility for women," Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy said in a conference call with reporters. "These women clearly did something wrong. That's why they're in federal prison. But their kids didn't. Their families didn't." Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, who also participated in the conference call, said the bureau's plans additionally call for renovating an existing minimum security camp for women in Danbury. Ultimately, a total of 400 women will be held in two separate facilities in Danbury — about 182 in the new low-security prison and another 217 at the renovated camp. Most will be from the Northeast.

Patriots’ ‘D’ needs work after shaky performance
Pats give up 31 points in victory vs. Steelers
FOXBORO, Mass. (AP) — Scoring 55 points is a sure sign that Tom Brady and the New England offense are rolling again. Allowing 31 points shows that the injury-battered defense needs to get better. "It was good to put some points on the board and be more efficient offensively than what we've been the last couple weeks," coach Bill Belichick said Monday. "But defensively, we gave up 31 points and most weeks that won't get it done. There's certainly a lot of room for improvement on that side of the ball." So after Sunday's 55-31 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, New England's bye week comes at a good time; the next game is Nov. 18 at Carolina. The Patriots (7-2) lead the AFC East by two games despite an ever-changing cast on defense. Three of their best starters, tackles Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly and linebacker Jerod Mayo, are on seasonending injured reserve. Their best cornerback, Aqib Talib, missed the last three games with a hip injury. On Sunday, two other defensive starters were knocked out: end Rob Ninkovich with a foot injury and safety Steve Gregory with a thumb injury. At least they have extra time to recover. "We're going to take a good look at everything we're doing and areas that we need to improve on," defensive coordinator Matt Patricia said. "It's really important for us to have this time to reflect a little bit." Rookie defensive tackles Chris Jones and Joe Vellano can use the time to rest from their unexpected heavy workload as replacements for Wilfork, a five-time Pro Bowler, and Kelly, in his first year with the Patriots after nine with the Oakland Raiders. Veteran linemen Andre Carter and Isaac Sopoaga can immerse themselves in the playbook. Carter, who spent the 2011 season with the Patriots, was re-signed and played in the past two games. Sopoaga, in his 10th season, was obtained in a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles last week and started at defensive tackle Sunday to provide run defense that had suffered without Wilfork and Kelly. Carter played 45 snaps and had one sack. Sopoaga was on the field for 27 snaps with no tackles. "There are a lot of things they can do better," Belichick said. "They showed up, made a few plays for us. Andre had a couple good pass rushes, hit the quarterback. Isaac was a factor on those short-yardage plays, short-yardage stops, knocked down a screen pass. But overall, there's still, I think, a lot of work and improvement they can have. See PATRIOTS, page B4
“When you’re getting shin splints on a grass field, it’s very concerning.”
— George Nasuti, Woonsocket High athletic director
High school sports
Breathing fresh life into Barry Field
Three-phase project is under way to install new grass into complex
WOONSOCKET – There are certain warning signs that you simply can’t or shouldn’t ignore. To George Nasuti, the injuries sustained by the city’s public high school student-athletes and preteens who ply their sporting trades on the multiple playing surfaces that fall under the umbrella of the Barry Field athletic complex were occurring at an alarming rate. Putting two and two together, the Woonsocket High athletic director deemed that at long last, something desperately needed to be done to make “the 17 acres of playground” that comprise the outdoor venue located off Smithfield Road both “safe and useful … it’s a valuable piece of land.” The grim picture that Nasuti painted during a recent walk-through of Barry Field only intensifies the battle cry that has already sounded. For much of the near-six decades that this sportsdominated venue has been catering to football, baseball, soccer and field hockey, there has been very little in the way of upkeep. The grass would get mowed, but that’s about it. “We were getting a lot of shin splints from all athletes, even the football players. Football players never get shin splints because they don’t run on cement. There also have been reports of ankle sprains, a couple of concussions and a fractured clavicle at the youth level,” Nasuti divulged. “I kept asking myself, ‘How are these kids getting hurt? Are we unlucky?’ When you’re getting shin splints on a grass field, it’s very concerning.” Nasuti kidded that other than the removal of some fences and the installation of a football BRENDAN McGAIR / Blackstone Valley Sports photo scoreboard over two decades ago, Barry Field has Dann Daly (left), the official groundskeeper at Barry Field, stands with Woonsocket High athletic director gone virtually unchanged from his high school George Nasuti at Barry Field recently.

BOSTON (AP) — Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell would like to keep the World Series champions together for another run at a title. And yet he knows that's unlikely to happen. "That was felt when we got off the duck boats, knowing this was one last chance to celebrate with a million people in the city," Farrell said Monday, two days after the team's victory parade and hours before the deadline to make qualifying offers to four free agents who were key to the team's title. "Hopefully we'll be able to retain all of them. The reality is that might not work out." One year after a midseason and offseason overhaul that turned a last-place team into World Series champs, the Red Sox began building for 2014 on Monday by making $14.1 million qualifying offers to free agents Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli and Stephen Drew. General manager Ben Cherington said the team decided not to make an offer to Jarrod Saltalamacchia, though he would like to re-sign the catcher. "There's interest in every one of them," Cherington said. "I also think it's unlikely that every one of them will be back. ... We're going to keep the conversation going with all of them, and also with alternatives, and see where the market shapes up. In a vacuum we'd like to have all of them back." The Red Sox went from worst to first a year after dumping three of their biggest contracts — Josh Beckett, Adrian Gonzalez and Carl Crawford — on the Los Angeles Dodgers at a savings of about $261.7 million. Instead of making a big splash in free agency last offseason, they signed mid-market players like Napoli, Drew, Shane Victorino and Koji Uehara. Cherington said the lessons learned from their successes and failures won't be forgotten. "I think we have to go into this offseason with the same general mindset: to build a roster as deep as we can," he said. "The general philosophy would lead us toward a lot of the same things we were looking for last year." The oft-injured Ellsbury is expected to seek a long-term deal averaging $20 million or more. A year after missing more than half the season, he played in 134 games and batted .298 with nine homers, stealing 52 bases in 56 tries. See RED SOX, page B4
Red Sox make $14.1M offers to Ellsbury, Napoli, Drew -- but not Saltalamacchia Red Sox beards come off for promotion
BOSTON (AP) — World Series MVP David Ortiz and Boston Red Sox teammate Shane Victorino had their beards shaved for charity Monday to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings in April. The "shave offs" occurred at Gillette's world headquarters. The Boston company donated $100,000 to the One Fund, which is assisting victims and their families of the bombings on April 15. Three people were killed and over 260 injured near the finish line that day. Ortiz, fresh off his third World Series title with the Red Sox, joked that it's a perfect look for his offseason. "I'm going down south — some place warm," he said. "I feel fresh. I've got to keep it real. It's not that cold down there." Sitting in one of two barber's chairs to Ortiz's right, Victorino appeared a bit shocked when he looked into a hand-held mirror and realized his beard and goatee were completely gone. "I'm a World Series champion and I look like I'm 12-years old," he said. Ortiz had his most of his beard shaved off, leaving only a goatee. "He's a three-time champ and I'm a two-time champ, and he's a little more tenured in the city than I am," Victorino said. "It's different look for me and something I'm definitely not accustomed to."
President Obama congratulates Farrell
BOSTON (AP) — President Barack Obama called Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell on Monday to congratulate him on winning the World Series. Farrell said on Monday that he got the call just before 2 p.m. According to a report of the call issued by the White House, the president also praised the work of closer Koji Uehara and congratulated designated hitter David Ortiz on being named World Series MVP. Farrell says the team is hoping to make the traditional champions' White House visit next year, perhaps around the season opener at Baltimore on March 31. The Red Sox beat the St. Louis Cardinals in six games for their third title in 10 years.

Fixing your bowling approach is important
here is little more embarrassing, in bowling, than an approach mishap. And I understand the majority of bowlers worry more about their bowling ball delivery than their approach to that execution. But your delivery is so influenced by your approach it only makes sense to review some of the elements which can adversely affect a bowler’s approach. Let’s begin by agreeing that a good approach can increase your potential for a good delivery. Remember, the various “stages” of bowling are no different than the manual gears used while shifting a standard transmission vehicle; 1st gear, to 2nd gear, then 3rd gear, etc. The bowler’s “approach” has to start off properly for the delivery to have a chance. You don’t just jump to or start off in 3rd gear; at least if you want to get the most out of your stages. The question remains, what actually WAYNE influences every bowler’s approach? There are numerous conditions, situations, and LIMA equipment which can promote a fantastic approach or conversely cause an approach disaster. The primary elements which tamper with our bowling approaches are “our bowling shoes”, “the approach area and condition”, “degree of humidity” and “bowler balance and timing”. “Bowling shoes” seem simple enough, yet a poor bowling shoe “slide” will wreak havoc with any bowler’s approach. Sure your bowling ball is your “tool” and your “weapon” but your shoes similarly have a role in your game…especially the approach. You probably didn’t skimp or short change yourself on the quality and performance of your bowling ball, so why do any different with respect to your bowling shoes? You shouldn’t. What do we really need to depend on in bowling? Clearly it is having a bowling ball and bowling shoes; everything else is secondary. The suggestion is therefore “purchase and use quality bowling balls and shoes”. They are well worth the expense and your scores should reflect it. A “better” pair of bowling shoes will treat you better on the “approach” and “slide” stages of your game. This same shoe will last longer and perform more consistently for you. But you absolutely must keep your “shoe slide sole” clear of gunk, grim and wetness; otherwise the best shoe on the market won’t work properly. Every bowling center has its own “approach area” and the “condition” of the area can vary. Synthetic bowling approaches tend to be a bit more demanding to adjust to. They can get “sticky” or “tacky”, so be prepared for this. Also, approaches (of all kinds) can
Bowler’s Edge
collect debris from previous bowlers on those lanes. Always look around for dirt, food and drink residue in order to avoid stepping in or on them. “Humidity” plays a huge role of influence on your approach. Humidity can result in approach area “dampness”. This “moisture” may not appear under visual observation, but it can certainly exist. Any form of humidity can obstruct your approach. A good habit is to “test” the approach before play begins. It doesn’t matter if it is league play, open bowling or just practice. Take care to test the approach for the level of slide or stickiness that is present before you head to the foul line. Nothing worse, on your first ball delivery, to end up on your rump or face because you were not aware of the humidity on the approach area. Your “balance and timing” are direct components of your approach which will either contribute to a proper delivery or hinder it. Take time to “set yourself” for the shot and don’t rush. Feel “natural” at the 1st gear stage of your approach. If you start off out of balance, everything is negatively amplified from there on. Each bowler’s “timing” to the foul line is a critical part to developing and sustaining an efficient approach. Your timing should be “comfortable” and once again natural. The extremes of approach “speed” should be avoided. “Rushing” or “attaching” the approach is a case of excessive speed at the delivery stage. It usually doesn’t allow you to keep things in balance. And often times your body reaches the delivery stage ahead of your ball delivery…not good. If your approach speed is “too slow”, all sorts of timing and balance particulars can go wrong. Typically the ball will arrive “ahead” of the bowler; again causing an improper delivery and release. Plus, too slow an approach can cause a loss in ball “energy” which will become quite evident as the ball travels lethargically down the lane. There are several other elements of the approach we have not discussed. Why? Because too much information can actually cause more harm and confusion than good. The Bowler’s Edge column with visit those “other” influences, in a future edition of this column. Like everything else in life, let’s analyze and approach this very important part of our game in moderation. Never “underestimate” the value of your approach and the “means” to ensure its integrity. And of course, remember to always have fun bowling! Striking it right: Congratulations to longtime The Bowler’s Edge customer Greg Green for his outstanding 844 series (276300-268). Greg understands the value of his “approach’ and the “conditions” which have an impact on his game.

Westerly’s Burr, East Greenwich’s Miner capture Wendy’s High School Heisman R.I. championships
PROVIDENCE — The Wendy’s High School Heisman program honored two of Rhode Island’s most outstanding high school seniors with the distinguished recognition as a state winner of the Heisman Award. Jacqueline Burr of Westerly High and Andrew Miner of East Greenwich High will now advance to compete for the national award that celebrates their hard work and dedication in athletics, academics, and community leadership. “Jacqueline and Andrew are exceptional examples of wellrounded students who excel academically and lead and serve others with the passion and persistence of a Heisman winner,” said Archie Griffin, a two-time collegiate Heisman Trophy winner. “While these students are recognized as leaders in their communities, the Wendy’s High School Heisman Award gives them the national recognition their achievements have earned.” The Wendy’s High School Heisman Award, now in its 20th year, is awarded in conjunction with the collegiate Heisman. The award has set the standard for high school student-athletes and has gained tremendous prestige among universities and colleges nationwide. Burr and Miner were chosen from 48,000 applicants, surviving rounds that narrowed contenders to one male and one female winner from each school, and then to Rhode Island’s respected group of 20 state finalists. Among the 20 finalists were Sarena Balon of Lincoln High, Erik Mateo of Central Falls High, Max LaPlante of North Smithfield High, and Andrew Carlson of Burrillville High. Burr and Miner will compete against winners from other regions across the country for a chance to be named one of 12 national finalists in Wendy’s annual quest to find the nation’s top scholar-athletes. These 12 outstanding students will go on to compete for the national championship in New York City on Friday, Dec. 13. The national finalists will be featured during a televised ceremony on ESPN networks and receive gold medals and $2,000 awards for their high schools. One male and one female national champion will each receive a crystal Wendy’s High School Heisman trophy, a $500 Wendy’s gift card, and a donation from Wendy’s in the amount

Nasuti: Barry Field ‘is the most valuable piece of property in the city’
Continued from page B1
playing days. And we’re talking the 1970s. The “cement” comment made by the chief overseer of Woonsocket’s athletic department is appropriate because that’s exactly how the ground at Barry Field feels when walking on it. The presence of far too many uneven spots probably helps in explaining the myriad of ailments and misfortunes that occur as athletes attempt to stop and cut before carrying on with the play – regardless of the sport. “The ground is hard as hell,” Nasuti stated matter-of-factly. “You look around and see weeds because it’s never been fertilized or seeded.” Luckily for Nasuti and the possible long-term validity of Barry Field, someone with a background in turf management is now the scene. In the four months since Dann Daly assumed the duties of official groundskeeper at Barry Field, the wheels have been in motion to at long last breathe fresh air into a tired and some may argue hazardous spot of land. “Dann is the first guy in my lifetime since I’ve been up here that had any field background or interest,” said Nasuti. “I told Peter Fontaine (Woonsocket’s director of school facilities) that we’ve got to do this and hire him.” With Nasuti driving the bus and Daly offering guidance and expertise, a much-needed facelift is in progress at Barry Field. Phase one of what Nasuti has mapped out to be a three-phase project has already been completed. A few weeks back, new grass was installed where the soccer field and outfield intersect. Next on the docket is the infield and field hockey area with the football field serving as the final item on a to-do list that has been many years in the making. “The stages would make Barry Field a safe place and it would look good,” Nasuti expressed. Added Daly, “We want people to come and say ‘This is a gem.’” *** Upon conducting a test of the Barry Field
playing grounds, it was deemed that instruments and machinery that would allow for deep penetration were necessary. Skimming the top and applying the proper soil-enriching nutrients simply would not suffice – not when referencing a substantial piece of property that has gone untreated over such a lengthy stretch. Such findings did not shock Nasuti. It became commonplace for him to venture to a Lowe’s or Home Depot to inquire about the availability of seed that would be scattered around Barry Field and serve as a “top dresser.” The group that told Nasuti and Daly what exactly was wrong with Barry Field and how to restore it was eventually hired to refurbish two acres – the soccer field and the outfield. On Friday, Oct. 11, Sports Turf Specialties, Inc. came to Barry Field at 5:30 in the morning and did not leave until 7:30 that night. The Wrentham-based company sent a two-person work crew that came with the necessary equipment – equipment that penetrated 12 inches – that would allow them to complete the task in accordance to Nasuti’s grand vision. “The materials and service ran about $7,000 with the bulk of it coming from the Woonsocket Athletic Coaches Association that was started 25 years ago to run a banquet,” Nasuti explained. Serving as the yin to Nasuti’s yang, Daly quipped, “We needed to release this tension in the ground. We do have a core aerator that was donated to us, but I couldn’t even go down an inch and a half below the surface.” The early returns from the work done by Sports Turf Specialties – this is same group that installed a new playing surface at Pawtucket’s McCoy Stadium a few days before the arrival of Hurricane Sandy in Oct. 2012 – have been most encouraging and have Nasuti chomping at the bit to get to work on the next phase. The newly installed grass at Barry Field is noticeably green at a time of year when bare spots are commonplace. “It was a test case, but everything has been positive,” said Nasuti.
The baseball infield may prove to be the greatest challenge. Members of the Woonsocket High coaching staff have implored Nasuti to address the noticeable “lips” down third base and first base lines, ones that are so glaring that it’s amazing that more players don’t stumble when rounding each bag. “The lips keep on getting bigger,” Nasuti noted. “This whole baby has to come out,” said Daly about the infield leaks that need to be plugged up. The first-base lip is next door to the field hockey field, meaning it’s posing a risk to two distinctive types of athletes. If Nasuti is able to obtain the necessary funding, he won’t hesitate to move Woonsocket varsity, junior varsity and middle school baseball to Renaud Field for the 2014 season. Both men believe that improving the football surface can take place while the season goes on simultaneously. Just like the baseball infield, however, major money is needed to make this a reality. Asked about the practice facility that is used by the Woonsocket football team and other adult leagues, Nasuti called it “a mess and dangerous. It’s the “elephant in the room” that can be spruced up with the aid of city-owned machines – provided that people understand the magnitude and importance of the project that Nasuti is overseeing. Or in keeping with the theme of overhauling Barry Field in such a way that has never been done or attempted – “unearthing.” *** As with any project of such magnitude,
Nasuti cannot fight the good fight alone. He estimates that the final two phases will cost roughly $25,000. To that end, the athletic director has applied for some mini grants and has reached out to the New England Patriots’Alumni Association in hopes of gathering ideas to raise the funds that are needed to make his vision a reality. “We’ve been searching for every opportunity to get nickels and dimes for this place,” said Nasuti. “We’re looking for creative ways to fund it.” Naturally, Nasuti is hopeful that local community leaders and businesses emerge and understand the need to make Barry Field safe. It will also be just as important to maintain the work that will hopefully be done though the help of the school department and local contractors. “If the enthusiasm comes up, I thinking we can make Barry Field a top-notch place with the help of local people,” says Nasuti. “To me, this is the most valuable piece of property in the city.” The athletes and coaches won’t be the only ones benefiting from a “new” Barry Field. The doors could swing open to hold any number of community-centered activities that range from Fourth of July fireworks, to middle school and high school “Olympic Days” to having families or groups rent space in a safe and secluded spot. “There’s just so much potential here,” expressed Daly, his sentiments also shared by Nasuti and hopefully the rest of Woonsocket in the not-too-distant future.

Red Sox make $14.1M qualifying offers to Ellsbury, Napoli, Drew
Continued from page B1
"Jacoby's a terrific player, as everyone knows. Of course we know we're a better team when he's on the field than when he's not," Cherington said, adding that if they cannot sign him they would consider moving Victorino, who won a Gold Glove in left field, to center field and looking for a corner outfielder. "That would be one possibility," Cherington said. "We recognize how good he was in right field, and how valuable his defense was in right field. He's capable of doing it." Napoli and Drew might accept the qualifying offer or use it as the basis for negotiations on a multiyear contract. Saltalamacchia, who made $4.5 million this year, could still re-sign with the team at a lower salary. The Red Sox declined to make qualifying offers to infielder John McDonald and reliever
Joel Hanrahan, who were not on the World Series roster. Also Monday, the team said outfielder Quintin Berry and infielder Brandon Snyder were sent outright to Triple-A Pawtucket and became free agents. Right-handers Andrew Bailey and Alex Wilson, outfielder Ryan Kalish and left-hander Andrew Miller were reinstated from the 60-day disabled list. "The game doesn't stop," Farrell said. "The baseball calendar doesn't stop just because we played to nearly Halloween." Complicating Napoli's negotiations is a hip condition that prompted the team to back out of a $39 million, three-year deal that had been tentatively agreed to and instead sign him to a oneyear contract for a guaranteed $5 million with performance bonuses — which he eventually earned — that brought him back to $13 million. "Mike Napoli played a lot this year and was
a huge part of our team," Cherington said. "We're making a qualifying offer to him, so we obviously have interest in him returning on a one-year deal for $14.1 million. He'll have an opportunity to consider that." On other topics Monday: — Koji Uehara, who inherited the closer job and was selected the AL championship series MVP, is the leading contender for the job in 2014. The Japanese right-hander, who will turn 39 in the first week of the season, is coming off a season in which he set career-highs with 73 appearances and 74 1-3 innings. "I think we're completely comfortable starting next year with Koji as our closer," Farrell said. "He didn't leave here with any physical ailments. We went into this spring with the same thought, that we need to be careful with his age and his workload. And he exceeded everything." — Cherington is content heading into spring
training with six candidates for the starting rotation: Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey, Jake Peavy, Felix Doubront and Ryan Dempster. "We could certainly envision a scenario where every one that's currently under contract is in Fort Myers. And in fact, at this point, that's what I would expect," Cherington said. "We'll see what the offseason brings." — Second baseman Dustin Pedroia has not yet had surgery on a torn ligament in his left thumb. "As far as I know, there's been no date or site set for the surgery," Cherington said. "But it certainly looks like it's headed in that direction." — Cherington said no other teams have asked for permission to interview Red Sox coaches for other jobs. Bench coach Torey Lovullo is reportedly a candidate for the managerial job with the Chicago Cubs, who are run by former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein.
Patriots’ defense needs some work after shaky performance vs. Steelers
Continued from page B1
"I think we're headed in the right direction but, of course, they're not at the point they'd be at if they'd been here all year. So we'll have to try to close that gap." The secondary had a subpar game, allowing Ben Roethlisberger to throw for 400 yards and four touchdowns. But that was an anomaly in a strong season in which Patriots defensive backs have 11 interceptions and have provided tight
coverage that has helped produce sacks. The Patriots had two interceptions against Roethlisberger by Devin McCourty and rookie Duron Harmon, who replaced Gregory. "We were able to make some key plays in the game that were big for us defensively," McCourty said, "and the offense took care of their part." The Patriots were just 18th in yards gained entering the game after leading the NFL last year. And Brady was having his worst statistical
season as a starter. But the 55 points tied for the fifth-highest scoring game in Patriots history. The 610 total yards and Brady's 432 yards passing were both the third most by the team. And the 197 yards rushing were the most by the Patriots in 22 games, including the postseason. Stevan Ridley rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns. He even stayed in the game after losing a fumble, a problem that led to his benching several times in his career. But Belichick
blamed this one on a good play by safety Troy Polamalu. There also were plus-100-yard receiving performances by Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Dobson and Danny Amendola. And Brady threw a season-high four touchdown passes. "We definitely went in with the mindset to allow all of our guys, our skill players, the opportunity to contribute in the game," offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said. "I think that played out pretty well."

Kids with high self-esteem are unlikely to be bullied
DEAR ABBY: I was picked on and bullied as a child. I was very insecure and dealt with low self-esteem. Through counseling I was able to overcome these issues to become a successful wife and mother. My question is, how do I prevent this from happening to my children without being an overprotective “bear” of a mom? — MAMA BEAR IN NEW YORK DEAR MAMA BEAR: Children with high self-esteem are less likely to be the targets of bullies. More often it’s the child whose self-esteem is fragile to begin with who becomes the victim. Children learn self-esteem from the way their parents treat them. Tell your children you love them, talk to them, read to them, listen to them and give them your undivided attention. And when they do something right, praise them. If you teach your children respect for others and how to be independent, they will be less likely to be bullied. When they are old enough to have unsupervised access to their cellphones and online activities, you should also monitor them for any indication that they are being harassed or harassing another child. ****** DEAR ABBY: I invited my sister “Alina” and her husband from out of town for Thanksgiving because they had no plans. I then extended an invitation to my other sister, “Marilyn,” and her husband if they had no plans. Marilyn told ****** DEAR ABBY: My husband and I had a beautiful wedding and were blessed with the presence of many family members and friends. I am embarrassed to admit that we unfortunately did not send out thank-you cards to our guests. Three years have passed, and we still feel guilty for not expressing our genuine gratitude. We are expecting our first child in a few months — another milestone we hope to share with our loved ones. Would it be OK to take this as an opportunity to finally thank them and share the news of our family? — MOM-TO-BE IN CALIFORNIA DEAR MOM-TO-BE: It would be in better taste to deliver these messages separately — first, your belated thank-you for your wedding gifts, and then, in a month or so when they have recovered from the shock, the news of your pregnancy and PERHAPS an invitation to your baby shower, which should be sent by whoever will be hosting it. ****** DEAR ABBY: My husband gave me a lovely necklace for my birthday. The problem is it’s made of stainless steel and I’m allergic to it. He did this before, and that time I asked him to return it. However, he never got around to it and eventually it went to charity. What do I do this time? Tell him and risk hurting his feelings? Or shove it in a drawer forever? — THANKS, BUT ... IN AUSTRIA DEAR THANKS, BUT ...: Say something like this to your husband: “Honey, the necklace is beautiful. You have wonderful taste. But remember? I’m allergic to stainless steel. Why don’t we return it together and pick out something I’ll be able to wear? Would Saturday be OK?” ****** Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. ****** To receive a collection of Abby’s most memorable — and most frequently requested — poems and essays, send your name and mailing address, plus check or money order for $7 (U.S. funds) to: Dear Abby — Keepers Booklet, P.O. Box 447, Mount Morris, IL 61054-0447. Shipping and handling are included in the price.
Jeanne Phillips
me later that her daughter, sonin-law and two grandchildren will be coming in from out of town, so I assumed they’d celebrate Thanksgiving at her house. When Marilyn asked me if they were included I said no, that the invitation was for her and her husband if they had no plans. Now she is furious with me and won’t talk to me. I already have my children coming over and that will be 10 guests, which is as many as I can accommodate. Who is right here? — THANKSGIVING HOSTESS DEAR HOSTESS: You are. Your sister should not have assumed that because you invited her and her husband for Thanksgiving that you were automatically obligated to entertain the rest of her family. It is your right to control your guest list, not hers.
Sudoku solution
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You can share your feelings without blaming anyone else for inspiring them. Because you’re so good at this, you’ll create good will in a difficult situation. Tonight, give yourself a break! TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Would you rather have one dollar now or two dollars in a week? Various forms of this question and others that have to do with short-term versus longterm benefits will arise. Stay strong! GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Do what you can to minimize your exposure to known stressinducers such as noise, crowds and any unpleasantness that is outside of your control. Your good mood depends on it. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Before you leave the house, you usually do a preparation check to make sure you have what you need for where you’re going. Today you’ll do well to take it to the next level and make sure you’re ready for anything. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If you only buy what you completely and totally love, you won’t regret the purchase later. Skip anything you merely like, because your tastes are rapidly changing, and tomorrow you might not like it anymore. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You are friendly to everyone, but you keep your relationships clean and simple by also maintaining boundaries. Over-sharing is a symptom of the times that you try not to exhibit. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your energy is high, and you feel industrious. Working with your hands makes you feel human in the best possible way. Bonus: You’ll be proud of whatever you fix, build or grow now. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You won’t like being in a place where too many things compete for your attention, but the good that comes from it is that you will be inspired to create your own environment. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Authenticity matters. Instead of trying to do your best, just try to do what feels genuine. One definition of success is being the most like you that you can possibly be. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). It is unhealthy and unproductive to enslave yourself to cold logic. Absurdity has its place and time, namely today. Your rationality has earned this! AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your version of the truth is not the same as another person’s, but both are equally true. Instead of wondering how this can be, you’ll try to tolerate and learn from the other version. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are a sincere friend, and you truly care about the people around you. You care about yourself, too, which is why you erect boundaries. Enforcing a few rules will bring out the best in everyone.

From the first three years of Kepler data, more than 3,500 potential worlds have emerged. Since the last update in January, the number of planet candidates identified by Kepler increased by 29 percent and now totals 3,538, analysis led by Jason Rowe, a SETI research scientist.

The artist's concept depicts NASA's Kepler mission's smallest habitable zone planet. Seen in the foreground is Kepler-62f, a super-Earth-size planet in the habitable zone of a star smaller and cooler than the sun, located about 1,200 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra. Kepler-62f orbits it's host star every 267 days and is roughly 40 percent larger than Earth in size. The size of Kepler-62f is known, but its mass and composition are not.
TOKYO (AP) — Knack was created to be the perfect beast to show off the spectacularly vamped up visual powers of the PlayStation 4 game console. The hero of the game, which is also called "Knack," is made up of 5,000 parts that cluster together and hang in the air to shape its ever-metamorphosing form. Each part — a metallic gold cube here, a rolling eyeball there, brown triangular fur everywhere — moves distinctly, rattling on roads, bursting into fiery explosions, changing textures and colors. "Knack" was designed by the special game studio of Tokyo-based Sony Corp., the electronics and entertainment company that also makes Bravia TVs and "Spider-Man" movies. It's the first time a game from Sony's Japan Studio is part of the launch lineup of a PlayStation console. The PS4 goes on sale Nov. 15 in the U.S. for $399, and Nov. 29 in Europe for 399 euros. It won't sell in Japan until February. But unlike other regions, "Knack" will be bundled with the machine's 39,980 yen ($400) price tag here. Usually, video games start out with a story idea. Designers then come up with the characters to fit the scenario. What's unique about "Knack" is that, instead, it all started with the main character. The story-line, which centers on the journey of a young boy and a scientist intent on saving the world from an invasion of evil goblins, came later. Knack is their assistant. The developers brain-stormed for more than a year on the best character to utilize the graphic prowess of the PlayStation 4. Other ideas were considered, such as a character composed entirely of dots or one made of sand. The team finally settled on the idea of multiple parts, called "relics" in the game, a reference to archaeological finds. Mark Cerny, an American and creative director of "Knack," said such a character was chosen because marketing studies showed it would likely have international appeal than one with a specific human look. "It wouldn't be American. It wouldn't be Japanese. But the problem we ran into is that it is very, very hard to make a character like that," he said in a telephone interview. "The result was a very amorphous character, sort of a moving blob." Cerny, the creator of "Crash Bandicoot," was involved in the hardware development of the PlayStation 4 as its "lead architect" to ensure that what he calls the "supercharged" console would be easier to use for game developers.
