Tunstall looking for $1 million in tax breaks

Wednesday to reduce Tunstall’s

PAWTUCKET – The City
Council is poised to consider
granting $1 million worth of tax
breaks to Tunstall Americas, the
digital healthcare giant that’s created more than 300 jobs since moving into a vacant building here two
years ago.
After a public hearing, the coun-

to his spokesman, Dylan Zelazo.
“We’ve been very happy,” said
Zelazo. “The recruitment of this
company is a major victory by the
administration and the council.”
After a groundbreaking in April
2013, the company projected it
might create around 250 jobs.
In a memo written to the council early last month, Tax Assessor
Robert W. Burns said Tunstall is
now providing “over 300 new jobs,
with plans to add another 40 within
the next several months.”
Tunstall is a division of the
British “telehealthcare” company
Tunstall Health Group, which manufactures and monitors a class of
devices known as personal emergency response systems, or PERS.
For the elderly and others with
medical challenges who want to
live independently, PERS are capable of doing everything from

WASHINGTON (AP) —
The Supreme Court has
rejected an appeal from a convicted murderer in
Massachusetts who has been
seeking taxpayer-funded sexreassignment surgery in
prison.
The justices did not comment Monday in letting stand
a lower-court ruling against
Michelle Kosilek. The prison
inmate was born Robert
Kosilek and is serving a life
sentence for killing spouse
Cheryl Kosilek in 1990.
The inmate has waged a
lengthy fight for the surgery
she says is necessary to
relieve the mental anguish
caused by gender-identity disorder.
Last year, a divided federal
appeals court in Boston overturned a first-in-the-nation
court order for the state to
provide the sex-reassignment
surgery.

AP Legal Affairs Writer
The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity, said investigators
were searching Simpson's property
in connection with the case.
Court documents show a man by
the name of Elton Simpson was convicted in 2011 in federal court in
Phoenix of making a false statement
by lying to an FBI agent in January
2010 about whether he had discussed traveling to Somalia.
According to the documents,
Simpson had discussed with an FBI
informant a desire to travel to
Somalia, but denied to an FBI agent
that he'd had any such discussions.
According to trial testimony,
Simpson is an American Muslim
who became the subject of a criminal investigation in 2006 because of
his association "with an individual

dropped his
blank, impassive
demeanor
and cried as
his sobbing Tsarnaev
aunt briefly
took the stand Monday in
his federal death penalty
trial before she was asked
to step down to compose
herself.
Tsarnaev, 21, wiped
tears from his eyes quickly
and fidgeted in his chair as
his aunt sobbed uncontrollably. He had maintained a
disinterested expression
since his trial began in
January.
His aunt, Patimat
Suleimanova, cried as she
sat down about 10 feet
from Tsarnaev. The tears
began falling before she
began to testify, and she
was only able to answer
questions about her name,
her year of birth and where
she was born.
After a few minutes,
Judge George O'Toole Jr.
suggested that the defense
call a different witness so
she could compose herself.
As she left the stand,
Tsarnaev used a tissue to
wipe his eyes and nose.
Tsarnaev was convicted
last month of 30 federal
charges in the bombings,
including 17 that carry the
possibility of the death
penalty. He moved to the
U.S. with his family in
2002 and committed the
bombings when he was 19.

FBI crime scene investigators document the area around two deceased gunmen and their vehicle outside the Curtis
Culwell Center in Garland, Texas on Monday. Police shot and killed the men after they opened fire on a security officer
outside the suburban Dallas venue, which was hosting provocative contest for Prophet Muhammad cartoons Sunday
night, authorities said.
Police confirm no explosives

Two shot dead at Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest
By JAMIE STENGLE
The Associated Press
GARLAND, Texas — Federal
agents searched an apartment in
Phoenix as part of an investigation
into a shooting outside a suburban
Dallas venue hosting a provocative
contest for Prophet Muhammad cartoons, the FBI confirmed Monday.
A police officer shot and killed
two gunmen who opened fire outside the Curtis Culwell Center in
Garland on Sunday night. A security
officer was wounded in the shooting.
Garland officer Joe Harn says the
men had used assault rifles, and that
one officer had fatally shot both
gunmen. Harn also said investigators
searched the men's car and detonated
several suspicious items, but no
bombs were found in the vehicle.
"We were able to stop those men
before they were able to penetrate
the area and shoot anyone else,"
Harn said. The FBI said the Phoenix
residence was being searched for
indications of what prompted the
attack, and FBI spokeswoman
Katherine Chaumont said no other
locations in Phoenix are being investigated.
Agents could be seen also searching a white Chevy minivan at the
Autumn Ridge Apartments complex.
They took what appeared to be plastic bottles out of the vehicle. The
apartment is on the first floor of a
two-story building. The area around
the building is sealed off but residents walked about and stood on
their balconies watching.
A federal law enforcement official has identified one of the suspects in the shooting as Elton
Simpson. The official, who was not

Lawyer asks judge to unseal
filings in 38 Studios lawsuit
By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
PROVIDENCE — A lawyer for Rhode Island's
economic development agency is asking a judge to
unseal filings in its lawsuit over the
failed 38 Studios deal, saying the public has a right to know.
Max Wistow, who represents the
former Economic Development Corp.,
said in a motion filed last week that
there's a public interest in unsealing
the documents because those involved
have asked a judge to rule immediately
on whether many claims in the multimillion-dollar lawsuit can go forward.
Wistow said motions for summary judgment were
filed under seal because they refer to depositions and
documents designated as confidential.
He also wants to keep future related filings public.

complete, and the court is being asked to make subSee UNSEAL, Page A2

Judge Mary H. Murgia said
in her order convicting

Prosecutors alleged that
the false statement involved
terrorism, but Murgia's order
said prosecutors hadn't
proved that part of the allegation. Another federal
judge later sentenced
Simpson to three years of
probation.

with his radicalized older
brother, Tamerlan, and
have urged the jury to sentence him to death.
Tsarnaev's lawyers say
Tamerlan, 26, was the mastermind of the attack and
lured his brother into his
plan. Tamerlan died days
after the bombings following a shootout with police.
A cousin testified
Monday that Dzhokhar
was a kind and warm child,
so gentle that he once cried
while watching "The Lion
King."
"I think that his kindness made everybody
around him kind," Raisat
Suleimanova said through
a Russian translator.
Assistant U.S. Attorney
William Weinreb pounced,
asking her if she believes a
deadly attack on innocent
civilians can be considered
kind. Tsarnaev's lawyer
objected, and Suleimanova
was not allowed to answer
the question.
In all, five of Tsarnaev's
family members are
expected to take the witness stand in federal court.
Prosecutors urged Judge
George O'Toole Jr. last
week to press Tsarnaev's
lawyers to make sure his
relatives testify soon
because 16 FBI agents
have been assigned to
guard and protect them
while they are in the
United States. The family
members arrived in Boston
on April 23.
"It's an enormous

Tens of thousands of people rallied around the world

he said. “This reduction
would mean instead of
receiving $132,432 annually,
the city would receive
$32,433 per year for a period
of 10 years.”
Such plans have been
approved by the council in
the past, most recently for
Collette Tours. Burns said
the incentive “not only
helped keep Collette Tours
in Pawtucket, but has resulted in their further growth
with anticipated further

Zelazo said that despite
the rollback, the deal is still
a net financial win for the

Ferguson to pay lawyer
$1,335 an hour to litigate
Justice Department reforms
FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Ferguson is paying an
attorney $1,335 an hour to help the St. Louis suburb
negotiate and possibly litigate reforms pressed by the
Justice Department since Michael Brown's shooting
death by a police officer there last summer, according to
a newspaper report.
The Ferguson City Council unanimously decided
behind closed doors in March to hire Dan K. Webb of
suburban Chicago at an hourly rate that Missouri
Lawyers Weekly, a legal publication, said is nearly double Missouri's highest attorney billing rate last year, the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1I843k3 ) reported.
That tab doesn't include the expenses and fees of any
lawyers or paralegals in Webb's firm who may work on
the case.
Webb, 69, is a former federal prosecutor whose
clients in private practice have included Philip Morris,
Microsoft and the New York Stock Exchange. Webb
prosecuted former National Security Adviser John
Poindexter during the Iran-Contra scandal, leading to
Poindexter's conviction of conspiring to mislead
Congress, obstructing congressional inquiries and making false statements. That conviction was overturned on
appeal. Webb will work with the Justice Department,
which spent seven months probing Ferguson's police
department and municipal court after white Ferguson
officer Darren Wilson fatally shot Brown, an unarmed,
black 18-year-old, in August.
A St. Louis County grand jury and the U.S. Justice
Department declined to prosecute Wilson, who resigned
in November. But the Justice Department released a
scathing report citing racial bias and racial profiling in
the Ferguson Police Department and a profit-driven
municipal court system that frequently targeted black
residents.
After the report, Ferguson's city manager, police chief
and municipal judge resigned. The municipal court clerk
was fired for racist emails. Now it's up to the Justice
Department and the city to negotiate an agreement to
reform the police department and municipal court.

it focused on addressing the
quality of the food, which
had degraded over time. For
instance, he said the company had stopped toasting Big
Mac buns to speed up service. That helped the company reconnect with its existing fans.
"Now McDonald's is
more concerned about the
customers that go to

Mark Kalinowski, a
Janney Capital Markets
analyst, said the video contained "quite a bit of broad
commentary, and some
specifics," but not as much
of the latter he had hoped
for.
He noted that "much of
these developments appear
previously anticipated."
McDonald's stock fell 1
percent to $96.65.
Easterbrook also said
during the video that the
company will focus on listening to customers and that
there will be "less sweeping

though they're a homogenous group. The company is
also working on improving
perceptions about the quality of its food with items
like a trio of new sirloin
burgers. In New York City,
Easterbrook said
McDonald's is partnering
with Postmates to offer

The "turnaround blueprint" comes as McDonald's
fights intensifying competition from a variety of players and shifting tastes. Sales
in Asia took a big hit after a
controversy over a major
supplier this past summer,
and business in Europe has
been weak. Its profit
dropped 15 percent last
year.
In its flagship U.S. market, executives said the
menu got too complicated
and gummed up operations.
Customer visits at established locations declined for
two straight years.
Already, McDonald's has
tried a number of moves to
inject some life back into its
brand.
Back in December, it
said it would start trimming
its menu to simplify operations and make room for
new offerings. More recently, it began testing an allday breakfast menu in San
Diego, revamped its grilled
chicken recipe and said it
would curb the use of
antibiotics. The company
also said last month that it
would double its planned
restaurant closures this year
to roughly 700. It hasn't yet
revealed its updated plans
on overall restaurant count
growth. At the end of last
year, McDonald's Corp. had
more than 36,200 locations

Letter Carriers Food
Drive is this Saturday
WOONSOCKET – This
Saturday Rhode Islanders
can help collect food for
neighbors in need by leaving a bag of non-perishable food at their mailbox.
Letter carriers across the
state will be picking up
donations and delivering
them to the Rhode Island
Community Food Bank as
part of this annual event.
Coordinated across the
country by the National
Association of Letter
Carriers, last year's drive
resulted in 90,000 pounds
of food for Rhode
Islanders. Annually, the
Food Bank distributes
nearly 10 million pounds
of food.
"We rely on our caring,
generous postal patrons to
support our food drive
each year," says Rhode
Island food drive coordi-
nator and veteran letter
carrier Steve Lepre. "Just
leave out a bag of food on
the morning of Saturday,
May 9, and your letter carrier will do the rest."
"One bag does make a
difference. This food drive
is critical to our ability to
serve our neighbors in
need, especially during the
summer months when
food donations traditionally decrease," said Andrew
Schiff, Chief Executive
Officer of the Rhode
Island Community Food
Bank. "Everyone can help
in the fight against hunger,
simply by leaving a bag of
food at their mailbox on
Saturday, May 9."
Most-needed items
include canned soup and
vegetables, peanut butter,
pasta, rice, canned beans,
tuna, and healthy cereals.

Pawtucket helps douse Attleboro fire
BY JOSEPH B. NADEAU
[email protected]
PAWTUCKET – Local firefighters
assisted Attleboro with a fire at an
automotive business after responding
to Dickens Avenue for a fire initially
believed to be in Pawtucket.
Battalion Chief Steve Tanguay said
local units responding to the fire report
found it was located just over the line
in Attleboro and took the 12:30 p.m.
call while Attleboro firefighters were
handling a brush fire in their community.
Workers at Greco’s Automobile at
83 Dickens Street, Attleboro, had been
burning trash in a 55-gallon drum as is
allowed at times in that community but
the fire spread to some nearby tires
and automotive parts, Tanguay said.
“It was pretty impressive when we
pulled up,” Tanguay said of the fire
and column of heavy black smoke
found coming from the burning materials.
“We were able to bring it under
control within about an hour and check
for any extension into the building,” he
said. The damage appeared to have
been limited to the pile of debris and
automotive parts and did not spread
into the structure, Tanguay said.
Although outside burning is
allowed in Attleboro, Tanguay said
Monday’s dry and windy weather conditions made it bad idea to be burning
anything outdoors until the conditions
change.

A senator’s faith
and humility
There are few moments of grace in our
politics these days, especially where conflicts over religion are concerned. Last
week, I witnessed one. Perhaps it was a
mere drop in an ocean of suspicion and
mistrust, but it was instructive and even
encouraging.
The venue, in a small
meeting room at a
Holiday Inn not far from
the U.S. Capitol, was a
gathering of members of
the Secular Coalition for
America whose mission
is “to amplify the
diverse and growing
voice of the nontheistic
community in the
E.J. Dionne
United States.” One
cause of the contentiousness of our politics is that both secular and very religious Americans feel misunderstood and under assault.
The secular coalition invited Coons to
speak because, as he said of himself last
Thursday night, he is “dedicated to the separation of church and state and to the equal
protection under the Constitution, which I
swore to uphold, whether you are religious
or secular.”
More than that, Coons told the crowd
that he is uneasy with “rigid certainty” on
religious questions. He understands that
many are skeptical of faith, both because
“religion [has] come to be so closely associated with right-wing politics” and
because the Bible “has been used as a document, as a foundation, to justify discrimination.” The revered text is, to some, “the
basis of intolerance, based on outdated
teachings and moral codes and has been a
source of pain and distance and discomfort
for many.”
If Coons had left it at that, this would
have been another in a long series of
Washington speeches in which a politician
tells his allies how much he agrees with
them. But as “a practicing Christian and a
devout Presbyterian,” Coons had a second
message.
Early on, he quoted the very Bible others find offensive, noting that Jesus’s command in Matthew: 25 to feed the hungry,
clothe the naked and visit the imprisoned
had “driven” him throughout his life. As a
young man, he spent time in Kenya and
South Africa working with the poor and
with leaders of the South African Council
of Churches, including Archbishop
Desmond Tutu.
And then he told a story. As a Yale Law
School student, he decided to pursue a sep-
arate degree from the university’s divinity
school, and what he encountered was a
long way from tolerance and open-mindedness.
“I was very active in the progressive
community in my law school, and most of
my friends were politically active progressives,” he said. “But I was unprepared for
their response when word started filtering
out that I had enrolled in divinity school.
Some of them literally disowned me; my
own roommates moved out. Several folks
literally stopped speaking to me and acted
as if I had lost my mind.”
His own background was thrown in his
face, with friends saying: “Chris, you’re a
scientist, you’re a chemist, you trained as a
chemist as an undergraduate, how could
you possibly believe this insane stuff?”
What he experienced, Coons said, was
“real bigotry.”
“Frankly, we were a group of progressives who were really proud of how welcoming and open we were and how virtually any possible lifestyle or worldview or
attitude was something we would embrace
— right up until the moment when I said I
believed in God.” For many progressives,
“accepting someone of expressed faith was
one of the hardest moments of tolerance
and inclusion for them.”
Believers among you are probably
cheering Coons at this point. But ever the
peacemaker, he didn’t stop here. The other
lesson he learned was that many nonbelievers “had personal experiences of deep pain
and of alienation .?.?. that had driven a big
wedge between them and religion.”
And he offered this: “When I think
about this country’s founding, the central
tenet of secular governance, I also think
about the importance of doubt and of
humility.
As a person of faith, I think it’s foundational to our country that if we allow people to choose their path of faith, they must
of course be also free, welcomed, celebrated, to choose not to have faith in a supreme
being.”
It’s to the credit of the Secular Coalition
for America crowd that they cheered a
speech that was as challenging as it was
affirming. Coons’s message was deceptively simple: that we must find ways of “getting past some of our misunderstandings of
each other.” The problem: Respecting each
other on matters of faith and politics seems
beyond our current capacities.

Letters to the Editor
PawSox belong at McCoy
I am an avid Pawtucket Red Sox fan.
The thought of them moving to Providence
is extremely heartbreaking. McCoy
Stadium has been the home to the
Pawtucket Red Sox for many, many
years...so why change now? The Pawtucket
Red Sox at McCoy Stadium offers a fan
friendly, family oriented, affordable place
to watch great baseball.
The Providence Stadium will not be that
way at all. Mr. Skeffington is not thinking
about the average person and family. We'd
have to pay for parking and the tickets and
concession prices will go up, too.
What will happen to those great mascots, Paws and Sox? They are a big fan
favorite, especially to children. So many
people go to McCoy Stadium every year to
enjoy great baseball because it is a fun and
affordable place to go.
I say emphatically YES to the
Pawtucket Red Sox staying in Pawtucket
and a offer a great big NO to moving the
team to Providence.

One-party rule breeds corruption
The chickens have come home to roost!
When Rhode Island voters fail to examine
the credentials of candidates for public
office, vote nearly exclusively by party
(Democrat in our case), vote according to
the dictates of their special interest group,
or are egregiously apathetic, then we get —
Rhode Island style government.
That is one-party rule. That is government more easily corrupted. That is when
nearly 50 percent of the candidates for
state office run unopposed. That is government heavily influenced by special interest
individuals or groups.
Currently, there is highly charged
debate on the relocation of the PawSox to
Providence from its home in Pawtucket
with an outrageous $120 million hit to the
taxpayers of the state.
Rhode Islanders are more than concerned that "insiders" and special interest
groups and individuals who make big
donations to election or re-election campaigns will have their way on this issue. If
that happens, trust in our elected leaders,
already low, will sink into the abyss.
Benjamin Franklin on the matter of trust
made it clear when he said, "The success of
any government rests on the general opinion of the goodness of that government as
well as the wisdom and integrity of its governors."
Unless there are definitive changes in
our current practices, Rhode Islanders have
slim chance of ever getting needed reforms
such as voter initiative/referendum, term
limits, or any other measure that rightfully
returns power to them even though candidates, and pointedly this governor, claim to
be "of and for the people".

Eight reasons racism
is real in America
Not everyone in America can appreciate
how much racism is still very much an
issue in this country, one that pervades
many aspects of life. As many studies
show, white Americans are often cut off
from the realities of racism, living within
homogeneous social networks and communities.
But if you have any doubts about
whether racism still exists in America, a
three-minute video from Brave New Films,
a California-based company that makes
films to spur political activism, might clear
them up. The video counts down eight reasons that racism is still very real in
America, using research from Yale
University, the American Civil Liberties
Union and the New England Journal of
Medicine, among others.
Those reasons are listed below.
1. Black-sounding names are 50 percent
less likely to be called back by those
reviewing job applications. In a 2002 study,
Marianne Bertrand and Sendhil
Mullainathan of the University of Chicago
mailed thousands of job applications to
reviewers that were identical except for the
names. They found that applications with
white-sounding names like Emily and
Brendan were much more likely to be
answered than identical resumes from
black-sounding names like Lakisha and
Jamal.
2. Black people are charged roughly
$700 more when buying cars. A study by
Ian Ayres and Peter Siegelman of Yale Law
School found that dealers quoted lower
prices to white men than blacks and
women, even though all buyers used an
identical script for negotiating.
3. Black drivers are twice as likely to
get pulled over. Numerous studies —
including a 1999 study by the ACLU and
an analysis of FBI records by USA Today
last year — show a significant racial gap in
police stops and arrests.
4. Black clients are shown 17.7 percent
fewer houses for sale. A 2012 study of
housing discrimination by the Federal
Department of Housing and Urban
Development found that black homebuyers
who contacted agents about recently advertised homes for sale learned about 17 percent fewer available homes than equally
qualified whites and were shown 17.7 percent fewer homes. Asian homebuyers
learned about 15.5 percent fewer available
homes and were shown 18.8 percent fewer
homes.
GUEST COMMENTARY
By Ana Swanson
5. Black people are much more likely to
be arrested for marijuana use. A 2013 study
by the ACLU showed that, while marijuana
use rates are equal among blacks and
whites, black people are 3.7 times more
likely to be arrested for it.
6. Black people are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of white people. A
2007 study by Marc Mauer and Ryan King
of the Sentencing Project document the
incredible incarceration rates of young
black men. "If current trends continue, one
in three black males born today can expect
to spent time in prison during his lifetime,"
they wrote.
7. Doctors did not inform black patients
as often as white ones about an important
heart procedure. In a 1999 study for The
New England Journal of Medicine,
researchers investigated a long-standing
difference in the use of cardiovascular procedures according to the race and sex of
the patient.
They found that women and blacks
were less likely to be referred for cardiac
catheterization than men and whites,
respectively, and that black women were
much less likely to be referred than white
men.
8. White legislators did not respond as
frequently to constituents with blacksounding names. In a 2011 study, Daniel
Butler and David Broockman of Yale
University found that state legislators were
less likely to respond to requests for help
with registering to vote when the sender
had a putatively black name than a white
one. Legislators of both parties exhibited
similar levels of discrimination against
constituents with "black names." However,
the study also found that minority legislators did the opposite, responding more frequently to those with black names.

Post.

Corruption investigation proved unfounded
BOSTON (AP) — The FBI has
released documents related to a corruption investigation into late Mayor
Thomas Menino that ultimately
proved unfounded.
Twenty-nine pages of documents
into the 2002-03 probe were posted
Monday on the FBI's website after a
public information request.
The investigation was prompted by
comments Menino made on "Boston
24/7," a 2002 ABC News documentary.
Menino appears to threaten a
lawyer for Sprint that he'll award a
lucrative city contract to rival AT&T
unless the telecommunications company donates $25,000 to the mayor's
youth initiatives.
"You got a problem," Menino said,
according to news reports at the time
the documentary aired. "AT&T is
sponsoring a whole summer program
with me, and you want Sprint to come
in and you did diddly-dink."
The FBI launched the corruption
probe in June 2002 after a story in the
Boston Herald questioned the appropriateness of the conversation.
The documents state that federal
prosecutors initially believed the case
had "prosecutive merit" and that the
FBI conducted interviews and
reviewed the city's contracts with
Sprint and AT&T.
At the time, Menino and the Sprint
lawyer said the conversation was just
bluster for the cameras. The state
inspector general's office also subsequently determined no actual city contract was at stake.
No charges were filed and the FBI
closed the case in September 2003.
The documents released Monday do
not specify why the investigation did
not lead to charges.
Menino died in 2014 after declining
not to seek re-election as he battled
cancer. He spent two decades in office
and was Boston's longest-serving
mayor.
NYPD officer, 25, succumbs
to gunshot injuries to head
First-degree murder
charges await suspect
NEW YORK (AP) — A 25-year-old
police officer shot in the head over the
weekend while attempting to stop a man
suspected of carrying a handgun died
Monday from his injuries, the third New
York City officer slain on duty in five
months.
Brian Moore, who was in a coma after
undergoing brain surgery following the
Saturday evening shooting, was pronounced dead at a Queens hospital with
his family at his bedside, including his
police officer father, uncle and cousin.
Hundreds of uniformed officers stood at
attention outside the medical center and
lined up down the block to salute the
ambulance carrying his body out.
Afterward many could be seen crying and
consoling one another.
"He proved himself to be an exceptional young officer," Police Commissioner
William Bratton said, noting Moore had
made more than 150 arrests in less than
five years on the job and earned meritorious service medals.
Moore and his partner were in plainclothes and in an unmarked police car
when they approached Demetrius
Blackwell in a quiet Queens neighborhood
after they saw him adjusting his waistband, a move that made them suspicious
he had a handgun, authorities said.
The officers pulled up next to
Blackwell, 35, and exchanged words
before the man suddenly turned, pulled out
a weapon and fired at least twice at them,
striking Moore in the head and face,
according to court documents.
Blackwell has been charged with
attempted murder and other crimes. He's
being held without bail and hasn't entered
a plea. His attorney has denied the
charges. He'll be charged with first-degree
murder, prosecutors said.
Mayor Bill de Blasio mourned Moore's
death.
Source says exec.
Goldberg died after
collapsing at gym
LOS ANGELES (AP) —
David Goldberg, the
SurveyMonkey CEO who
also was Facebook executive
Sheryl Sandberg's husband,
was exercising at a gym in a
Mexican resort when he collapsed before he died Friday,
a person close to the family
says. Efforts to revive
Goldberg, who was vacationing with family and friends,
were unsuccessful. The
source says family is planning a service in California
but no other details are available. The popular Silicon
Valley executive died Friday
night at age 47, his company
and family members said on
Saturday, without giving a
cause of death at the time.
In an interview last month,
Goldberg told the news site
Business Insider of maxing
out his credit cards in the
early 1990s to fund one of
his first Internet ventures, a
music site, before going on
to work at other tech companies, including Yahoo.
In 2004, Goldberg married
Sandberg, another longtime
tech executive who now
serves as Facebook's chief
operating officer.
Washington Post
NYPD officers embrace after fellow policeman Brian Moore was loaded into an ambulance. On Monday, Moore died from
injuries sustained in a Saturday shooting.
"For five years, Brian served with distinction and he put his life on the line each
day to keep us all safe," he said in a statement. "On Saturday, he made the ultimate
sacrifice in service to the people of New
York City."
Patrick Lynch, who heads the rank-andfile police officers' union, joined Moore's
family at the hospital and said afterward
that the city's police force would pay their
respects, and then return to their posts
patrolling streets, stairwells and subways.
"They may have sadness in their eyes,
but they have bravery in the hearts," he
said.
Moore had been on the job since July
2010, officials said. Flags at police headquarters were flying at half-staff Monday.
He is the first city officer to be killed
on duty since two uniformed police officers were slain in December in Brooklyn.
Officers Wenjian Liu, 32, and Rafael
Ramos, 40, were shot at close range as
they were sitting in their patrol car Dec.
20. The gunman, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl
Brinsley, then ran into a nearby subway
station and fatally shot himself.
Before the ambush, Brinsley posted on
an Instagram account that he was planning
to shoot two "pigs" in retaliation for Eric
Garner's death in a police chokehold.
In brief
Pedestrian struck, killed
by train in Newton
NEWTON, Mass. (AP) —
Transit police are investigating the death of a man struck
by a commuter rail train in
Newton.
An MBTA spokesman
says the victim was trespassing on the tracks and was
struck by an inbound train
just outside Auburndale
Station at about 9:15 a.m.
Monday.
The man was in his 50s
but his name was not made
public. The death is not considered suspicious. The T
bused passengers on the
Framingham/Worcester commuter rail line between
Wellesley Farms and Boston
during the investigation.
Crash sends car through
Newport shop’s window
NEWPORT (AP) —
Newport police are looking
for the driver of a sport utility vehicle who witnesses say
was responsible for an accident that sent a car through
the front window of a bridal
shop. Police say the SUV
sideswiped another early
Sunday morning and that
Mercedes SUV crashing into
the Andria Bird Bride bridal
shop. No one was in the shop
and nobody in the SUV was
injured.
Shop owner Andi Sperl
said none of the wedding
dresses was destroyed, but
some may need to be sent out
for dry cleaning. She says
that despite the damage to
her shop, she will remain
open for business and honor
every commitment she's
made to brides preparing for
their wedding day.
New England states launch regional crackdown on speeding
WINDSOR, Conn. (AP)
— State police across New
England on Monday
launched the region's first
coordinated crackdown on
speeding and failing to wear
seat belts.
Connecticut Gov. Dannel
P. Malloy announced the
"New England Drive to
Save Lives" campaign with
troopers and highway safety
officials from all six states
at a commuter lot off
Interstate 91 in Windsor,
Connecticut.
State police in
Connecticut, Massachusetts,
Rhode Island, Vermont,
New Hampshire and Maine
will be targeting speeding
and the use of seat belts and
child restraints on interstates 91 and 95 this week.
Local police across New
England will join state
police for a second week of
increased enforcement in
August on highways and
secondary roads across the
region.
Authorities are calling
the effort a highly visible
mobilization and public
education campaign
designed to reduce car crash
deaths and injuries. The six
states also are using the slogan "Stop Speeding Before
It Stops You" employed by
the national "Drive to Save
Lives" program, which was
started three years ago by
the International

FBI releases files from probe of late Boston mayor
‘Star Trek’ actress
Grace Lee Whitney, 85
LOS ANGELES (AP) —
Grace Lee Whitney, who
played Captain Kirk’s assistant, Yeoman Janice Rand, on
the original "Star Trek"
series, died on Friday at her
home in Coarsegold, Calif.
She was 85.
Ms. Whitney played
Yeoman Rand in the first
eight episodes before being
written out of the series. In
her 1998 autobiography, "The
Longest Trek: My Tour of the
Galaxy," she wrote that her
acting career largely ended
after that.
She also wrote of becoming an alcoholic. She
described struggling with her
addiction for many years
before seeking treatment and
resuming her career with the
help of Leonard Nimoy, who
starred as Spock in the series.

Parents with strong beliefs

DEAR ABBY:
Our amazing daughters are
in their late 20s. Both of
them are independent, intelligent and loving. The four of
us have a special bond. My
wife and I have always been
supportive in all aspects of
our daughters’ lives, and that
will never change.
They have been dating
great guys over the past five
years whom we believe they
will ultimately marry. The
problem? My wife and I were
raised with certain values,
and our daughters have
recently moved in with their
boyfriends. We do not
approve, but respect their
decisions as adults.
One daughter plans to
have an open-house party celebrating their new place.
She’s upset that my wife and I
have indicated we won’t be
attending, because doing so
would be difficult and against
our beliefs. We have understood her decision, but she
does not appear to respect
ours. Are we wrong to take
this stance?
— AGAINST THE TIDE

DEAR AGAINST: I think
so. Your daughter is an adult.
Do you plan to continue
“punishing” her and the man
you say you approve of until
they tie the knot? She and her
boyfriend have been a couple
for five years now, and their
relationship appears to be

progressing nicely. It’s not
unusual for couples today to
live together. I see nothing to
be gained by skipping their
open house — but I do see
something to lose.
DEAR ABBY:
I like a girl but don’t know
if she likes me. I went to a
school dance with her, but
that’s about it. I’m a choosy
person, but everything seems
right about her.
I never had a girlfriend
before. Am I doing something
wrong? I really want to be in
a relationship with her, but I
don’t want to get rejected. I
hate that feeling. Can you
give me advice on what to
do?

nothing gained.” It means
that in order to succeed, you
have to TRY. In dating relationships, there is always

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). If
you trust too much, you may be
led astray, but if you don’t trust
enough, you’ll be isolated.
Navigating this territory will be
your main responsibility of the
day.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22).
There’s some funny business
afoot, so keep your eyes peeled.
Before you reward the savior of
the day, make sure this person
didn’t actually cause the problem to begin with.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23).
First World problems are a joke
because we often react as if
they were as dire, frustrating
and real as Third World problems. You’ll be the voice of perspective, putting the entitled in
their place.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov.
21). Books can be like people
you know, except sometimes
they seem more real. You think
about them throughout your
day. You visit them like friends.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). When your loved
ones want your help, your
response is automatic.
However, should it be?
Consider that sometimes the
very best way to help is by not
helping.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
19). Every face has a default
position, a resting pose while
out in the world. You can’t go
wrong if you steer toward those
whose default happens to be
rather pleasant.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb.
18). You prefer to do what fits
your skills and talents. But
when you can’t do that, you fit
your skills and talents to the
activity at hand, thus multiplying them.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March
20). As much as you try to live
in the present moment, you
keep getting pulled back. How
can you help it? There’s a lot of
life in the past, and some of it is
begging for a visit.
band’s grandmother, the others are rude. They exclude me
from conversations and hardly acknowledge my existence.
I try to make conversation
but unsuccessfully. It makes
for a dreadfully awkward
evening.
How do I get out of going
to the theater without hurting
anyone’s feelings?
— NO THANKS
IN CANADA
DEAR NO THANKS: The
most effective way to accomplish that would be to stop
beating around the bush and
tell your husband’s mother
and grandmother you would
prefer not to be included, and
the reason why.

he average date of the first 80degree day of the season locally is

In brief
Sturdy Hospital to
hold June blood drive
ATTLEBORO – Sturdy
Memorial Hospital will be
holding a Blood Drive in
partnership with the Rhode
Island Blood Center on
Thursday, June 11, from 7:30
a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Hospital
Auditorium.
Each donation made can
treat up to three people and
will help alleviate the
region’s seasonal blood
shortage. While emergencies
and disasters capture the
attention of our community
and prompt people to
respond by donating, the
need for blood donations is
ongoing. Donating regularly
is something we can do to
ensure blood is always available the instant it is needed,
and for people who have
cancer, blood disorders, sickle cell anemia, and other illnesses, as well as those who
need regular blood transfusions to live.
A “Be The Match” bone
marrow registry will also be
held at the drive. To register
to become a bone marrow
donor and have your information in the “Be The
Match” registry, you must
provide a cheek swab sample, and fill out a consent
form, which consists of basic
contact information, alternate
contact information, and
some medical evaluation
questions.
All donors will receive
refreshments and be entered
in a raffle. To schedule an
appointment for the Sturdy
Memorial Blood Drive, call
508-236-8555 or visit sturdymemorial.org/events_bloo
ddrives.html. Sturdy
Memorial is committed to
bringing in at least 58 donors
for the Blood Drive. Donors
need to be at least 17 years
of age and at least 110
pounds, and the process
takes approximately one
hour.

Almost half of states’ health care
exchanges face financial struggles
By LENA H. SUN
and NIRAJ CHOKSHI
The Washington Post
WASHINGTON — Nearly half of
the 17 insurance marketplaces set up
by the states and the District under
President Barack Obama's health law
are struggling financially, presenting
state officials with an unexpected and
serious challenge five years after the
passage of the landmark Affordable
Care Act.
Many of the online exchanges are
wrestling with surging costs, especially for balky technology and expensive
customer-call centers — and tepid
enrollment numbers. To ease the fiscal
distress, officials are considering raising fees on insurers, sharing costs with
other states and pressing state lawmakers for cash infusions. Some are
weighing turning over part or all of
their troubled marketplaces to the federal exchange, HealthCare.gov, which
is now working smoothly.
The latest challenges come at a critical time. With two enrollment periods
completed, the law has sharply
reduced the number of uninsured and
is starting to force change in the
nation's sprawling health-care system.
But the law remains highly controversial and faces another threat: The
Supreme Court will decide by the end
of June whether consumers in the 34
states using the federal exchange will
be barred from receiving subsidies to
buy insurance.
If the court strikes down subsidies
in the federal exchange, the states that
are struggling financially probably
would abandon efforts to join the federal marketplace because their residents would no longer be able to get
subsidies to help them buy insurance.
If the court upholds subsidies for the
federal exchange, some states may
step up efforts to transfer operations to
HealthCare.gov.
"Everyone is looking at all the
options," said Jim Wadleigh, executive
director of Connecticut's exchange,
considered one of the most successful
of the state marketplaces. While states
are "trying to find ways to become
self-sustaining," he added, it is an
open question whether they will succeed.
States have received nearly $5 billion in federal grants to establish the
online marketplaces used by consumers to enroll in health plans under
the health care act. The federal funding ended at the beginning of the
year, and exchanges now are required
to cover their operating costs.
Most exchanges are independent or
quasi-independent entities. For most
of them, the main source of income is
fees imposed on insurers, which typically are passed on to consumers.
Because those fees are based on how
many people have signed up, strong
enrollment is critical to an exchange's
fiscal success.
But for the recently completed
open enrollment period, signups for
the state marketplaces rose a disappointing 12 percent, to 2.8 million
people.
That compared with a 61 percent
increase for the federal exchange, to
8.8 million people, according to
Avalere Health, a consulting firm.
States with the smallest enrollment
growth are among those facing the
most daunting financial problems.
Most exchanges have operating
budgets of $28 million to $32 million.
One of the biggest cost drivers is call
centers, where operators answer questions and can sign people up.
Enrollment can be a lengthy process
— and in several states, contractors
are paid by the minute. An even bigger cost involves IT work to correct
defective software that might, for
example, make mistakes in calculating
subsidies.
"A lot of people are going to want
to know: What happened to all those
taxpayer dollars that went to these IT
vendors?" said Sabrina Corlette, project director of Georgetown
University's Center for Health
Insurance Reforms.
To shore up their finances, state
exchanges are looking at an array of
options, although they probably will
hold off making major decisions until
after the Supreme Court rules.
"They are literally looking at huge
gaps and they are not sure how they
are going to get through the year,"
said Caroline Pearson, senior vice
president of Avalere Health.
In Minnesota and Vermont, officials
are so fed up with costly technical
problems in their exchanges that they
are considering handing over some or
all of their functions to the state or
federal governments. Lawmakers in
Oregon abolished the state exchange
in March, long after it was essentially
turned into a gateway to
HealthCare.gov.
In Rhode Island, the legislature is
considering a fee on health plans that
would go up or down based on the
exchange's operating costs.
In Hawaii, which has one of the
most problem-plagued marketplaces,
the exchange needs $28 million to
fund operations until 2022, when it is
projected to become self-sustaining,
officials say. Without the money, "it's
going to be very difficult to keep the
doors open," said Jeff Kissel, executive director of Hawaii Health
Connector.
As a backup plan, officials are talking to the Obama administration about
a possible federal takeover of the marketplace, said an administration official who declined to be named
because of ongoing talks.
Some states are exploring novel
ways to raise funds. The Connecticut
exchange is offering to help other
marketplaces — for a price. It plans,
for example, to renegotiate its callcenter contract and share its strategy
with other states that use the same
contractor, Wadleigh said.
Some state lawmakers express frustration that exchange officials either
don't know whether their marketplaces
will eventually be self-sufficient or are
reluctant to say.
"Basically, the exchange is teetering and the question is, 'Can this be
shored up?" said Republican Sen.
Ellen Roberts, who chairs the committee with oversight of Colorado's
exchange board. The cost of running
the exchange's call center is expected
to reach $21.3 million for this year,
well above a previous estimate of
$13.6 million.
When the ACA was enacted,
Democratic governors pressed to create their own exchanges to signal their
support for the law and to assert their
own authority. Republican governors
refused to set up exchanges as "a sort
of badge of honor in opposing
Obamacare," said Larry Levitt, a senior vice president at the Kaiser Family
Foundation. But now, decisions probably will be made on more pragmatic
grounds. "It will come down to more
of a dollar-and-cents decision," he
said.
Some critics say the states' problems show that supporters of the law
underestimated the practical difficulties of setting up the exchanges. The
states are facing "execution problems
more than political resistance problems," said Thomas Miller, a healthcare policy expert at the American
Enterprise Institute.

Sylvestre, St. Raphael rip Davies, 14-3
Viera, LaBree lead attack,
Saints improve to 8-1
By BRENDAN McGAIR
[email protected]
LINCOLN – Regardless of what the
scoreboard says, Davies Tech head
coach Scott Cooper is all about playing
until the final out.
Cooper wasn’t necessarily disappointed with the final outcome Monday
– a 14-3 loss to Division II contender
St. Raphael. What bothered him was the
number of long faces he saw, both in
the field and in the dugout, as the game
progressed.
Things appeared to hit rock bottom
for the Patriots, who came into Monday
as the top team in Division II-North, in
the top of the seventh when injuries and
double substitutions left Cooper with no
choice but to finish the inning with just
eight fielders.
“I’m just disappointed that some of
our kids threw the towel in,” said
Cooper. “We don’t coach like that and
we don’t play like that.”
Davies’s cause was hurt when one of
the team’s top hitters, junior Laura
Sylvestre, missed the game due to illness. Sylvestre’s absence forced Cooper
to rearrange the top four spots in his
batting order. On a typical day, the
Patriots have Madison Goodhart leading off followed in order by Sylvestre,
Madison Cooper and Samantha Lisi.
“It was like a domino effect,” said
Cooper.

Woonsocket’s Jared Briere sets new
PR with 205-foot hammer throw
By JON BAKER
[email protected]
CUMBERLAND – Jared Briere
rapidly swung the hammer around
his body and grunted as he propelled
it high into the air, eventually landing
it a few feet right of the sector’s
invisible mid-line.
Both he and Woonsocket High
weight coach Marc Piette knew it
was a pure and solid heave; that’s
why the athlete immediately went
back to catch a glimpse of the distance.
When Piette announced it as 205
feet, five inches, Briere leaped, then
grinned widely.
With the toss, he became only the
10th schoolboy across the United
States to eclipse the 200-feet milestone.
“I’ve been thinking about this all
day,” Briere said afterward, not long
after the start of the Villa Novans’ trimeet clash with unbeaten
Cumberland and Mount St. Charles,
not to mention Burrillville. “I’ve
wanted this so badly. On my first
throw, I fouled to the left, and my
second was 184 feet, so I knew I had
to let it all out on the third.
“This has been a huge mental barrier for me, (one) I had to get over,”
he added. “On my previous two
throws, I was too lazy; I was coming
into (the final turn) too late. I knew,
at the end, I really had to explode.
I’m elated; I finally did it.”
Thanks to fellow sophomores Jake
Greenless and Dilyn Cote,
Woonsocket swept the event, but
Cumberland still manufactured more
top-six placements in the resulting
events to collect elementary Northern
Division beatings of the Novans
(120-34), Mounties (127.5-26.5) and
Broncos (145-9).
Still, Woonsocket did edge MSC,
75-70, though the Mount salvaged a
win over Burrillville, 86-52.
With the three triumphs, the
Clippers (11-0) captured yet another
divisional regular-season crown during their quad-meet finale.
“It’s unbelievable what Jared just
did,” Piette said. “He’s been gearing
up for this since last year. His best
throw as a freshman was 179-5, but
he threw 197-even in this same circle
(during) the Cumberland Frosh-Soph
Invitational a couple of weeks ago.

Above, Cumberland’s Amy Laverty and Julia Dempsey finish the
3,000 meters on Monday, with Laverty placing first. Below, Mount
St. Charles’s Trevor Roberge finished first in the triple jump.
CUMBERLAND – Senior
quad-captain Nichole Barger had
been told by Cumberland High
coach Vanessa Malloy prior to her
1,500-meter run on Monday afternoon to begin in a slow tempo and
build on it.
Just 200 meters into the race,
and Barger still a long distance
from her coach, Malloy could be
heard saying, seemingly to herself,
“Seventy-five seconds. Nichole,
take it easy!”
Barger eventually did, sealing
the race with a time of 5:08.5.
That finish later helped the
Clippers earn a Northern Division
double-dual meet sweep of
Woonsocket (109-44), Mount St.
Charles (125-29) and Burrillville
(112-33) at Tucker Field on
Monday afternoon.
“My best time ever is 4:47, but I
felt great,” Barger said after her
lone triumph. “Coach told me to
go out slower because I ran a fast
800 (2:18.16) at the Rick Schomp
Invitational (at Coventry High) on
Saturday.
“This was last dual meet, and
we’ve been using (the regular season), at least for the upper-echelon
girls, to double and triple up in
events, but she had told me I’d
only be doing one event here,” she
added. “We’ve been doing that to
build our strength and conditioning
for the class and state meets.
“I know Coach has a big workout in store for me on Wednesday,
and I don’t know what it is yet. I
will say that the 5:08 is a good
time for me in practice, but –
based on Coach Malloy’s reaction
– I think I started a little stronger
than expected.”
On the other side of the spectrum, classmate Meaghan Scullin
competed in four, and – naturally –
reigned in them all. After snaring

Stephen Curry was named the NBA’s MVP for 2014-15 after leading Golden

OAKLAND, Calif. — His voice cracked first.
Then, his eyes got red. Finally, Stephen Curry
cried.
He had felt this way in the past — when he
barely received any scholarship offers out of high
school, when some questioned whether his game
could translate from tiny Davidson College to the
NBA, when he sat in a doctor's office searching for

Curry could let it all out and laugh
now. This was a time for celebration.
The Golden State Warriors point
guard won the NBA’s Most Valuable
Player award Monday, the biggest
moment yet of a young career already
full of overcoming obstacles.
Curry received the Maurice Podoloff
Trophy in a packed hotel ballroom
below Golden State’s downtown
Oakland practice facility. He shook his
head in disbelief as he was announced
as the winner of the league’s top individual honor.
“There were obviously good times
and bad times. Times I wanted to shut it
down. Times where you realize that all
the hard work you put into it was worth
it,” Curry said. “It just made me realize
how blessed and thankful I really am to
be in this position.”
Curry received 100 of 130 first-place
votes for a total of 1,198 points from a
panel of 129 writers and broadcasters,
along with the fan vote on the NBA’s
website. Houston’s James Harden had
25 first-place votes and 936 points.
Cleveland’s LeBron James, a four-time

points.

What also played a part in
Campopiano’s decision to have Daigle
drop down a bunt had to do with who
was on the mound for the Raiders.
Mejia was coming off a sixth inning
where he came in after the starter
(Daigle) allowed the first two Davies
batters to reach.
After getting out of the jam
unscathed, Mejia set down the Patriots
in order in the seventh.
Shea jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the
first inning before solo runs in the first
and second brought Davies back to
even. The Patriots’ second run came on
a sacrifice fly by junior Kyle Frade.
Shea took a 3-2 lead in the third
before Davies tied things up in the
fourth behind a RBI single from sophomore catcher Ryan Carrion.
Besides playing the role of stopper,
Mejia also came through with two hits
and one RBI. Jan Cruz also had two hits
for the Raiders.
Daigle ended up going five-plus
innings for Shea, allowing three runs
(one earned) with four strikeouts. Mejia
struck out two. The two Shea pitchers
combined on a two-hitter.
Davies starter John Hemond was just
as tough on Shea. The sophomore collected 11 strikeouts as part of a complete-game effort.

(352 points) finished fourth and New
Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony
Davis (203 points) was fifth.
Curry’s family informed him of the
news at his house after Golden State’s
win over Memphis in Game 1 of the
Western Conference semifinals Sunday.
Curry, pulled into a room by his basketball-playing brother, Seth, opened the
door to see everyone wearing personalized MVP T-shirts, holding cameras and
sporting “the cheesiest smiles you could
ever imagine.”
“It was a great moment that I’ll
remember for the rest of my life,”
Curry said.
Afterward, he sat in a chair for
about 10 minutes and reflected on his
journey.
Curry kept his cool in private
Sunday. He had trouble staying composed at times in public Monday.
Curry was joined on stage by
Warriors coach Steve Kerr, general
manager Bob Myers and his teammates — praising each of them individually. He got choked up talking
about his pregnant wife, Ayesha, and
their 2-year-old daughter, Riley, who
sat in the front row with the rest of his
family.
And he shed a few tears talking
about his father, Dell, pounding the
dais while he gathered his thoughts.
“A lot of people thought I had it
easy with pops playing in the NBA,”
he said, shaking his head.
Curry thanked just about every
team employee, too, including former
general manager Larry Riley and
retired coach Don Nelson for “taking a
chance on a scrawny, little kid from a
mid-major school.”
Across the country, James called
Curry the “catalyst” for Golden State’s
rise from perennial loser to championship contender.
“I think it’s great that another kid
born in Akron, Ohio, can win an MVP,
so I liked it,” James said at the
Cavaliers’ shootaround.
Curry, now 27, was born in Akron
but grew up in Charlotte, North
Carolina, where he started in the shadows of his father.
Despite his famous name, most
major colleges didn’t offer Curry a
scholarship because they thought he
was too small. Curry proved them all
wrong, going from a shooting guard
who dazzled at Davidson during the
NCAA Tournament to a polished pro
point guard who can shoot, dribble and
distribute with the best of them.
Curry carried the top-seeded
Warriors to a franchise-record 67 wins,
surpassed his own NBA record for
most 3-pointers in a season and added
to his growing reputation as one of the
most entertaining spectacles in sports.

win in the 100M on Monday, and a tie for first in the 200M with Cumberland’s

“Throwing here is very agreeable
to him, so I’m not stunned,” he said.
“On his second try, his right foot
came in very late – he had a big
overstep – so he couldn’t transition
into his second turn. I just told him
to get his right foot in (the landing
area) quicker on his first spin, and
then he rode that speed and let it fly.
“For him to be now listed among
the top hammer throwers in the
country, and he’s the top sophomore,
I couldn’t be happier for him. He’s
worked very hard.”

the 400 meters, she also took the
long jump, high jump and triple

Then there was junior Madison
Soullier, who rolled to wins in the
100 high hurdles (16.3) and 300
low hurdles (49.6).
“My time in the 300 wasn’t very
good, but I’m still getting in some
hard workouts,” Soullier laughed.
waiting for this a long, long time.
Every day, he’d say how much he
wanted to break the 200-foot mark.
He told me (Monday) morning,
“When I woke up, I thought this
would be my day.”
Interrupted Briere: “I didn’t say
that, but I do know I felt pretty good
in warm-ups.”
Briere didn’t fare as well in the
shot put, placing second (40-4)
behind CHS senior Andrew Walters
(47-1), but he didn’t seem to mind.
“I was ranked second going into
this meet behind Walters, so I kind
of expected to finish there,” Briere
said. “I’m not particularly disappointed because I threw three feet
better than my previous PR in the
hammer. I’m still too excited about
that.”
Cumberland dominated in most
of the running and field events,
claiming 14 of the 18. Senior Jared
Talbert led the way with victories in
the 110 high hurdles (14.9) and high
jump; classmate Matt Feng in the
100 dash; junior Sean Laverty in the
1,500 (4:06.5); senior Abdullah
Kaba in the 3,000; Collin Simmons
in the 300 intermediate hurdles; and
Matt Delva in the pole vault.
CHS also swept both relays.
“For Sean in the 1,500 and Jared
Talbert in the 110s, those are good
times going into the championship
season,” said head coach Tom
Kenwood.
Greenless and Troy Rivers added
triumphs in the discus (113-1) and
javelin, respectively, while Trevor
Roberge landed the Mounties’ lone
win in the triple jump (40-10 ¼).
For the Broncos, Dustin Laney
snatched the long jump with a leap
of 19-8, just 6 ¾ further than
Roberge.
MSC fell to 6-2, while
Burrillville dropped to 6-5.
“My goal here was just to score
points, not necessarily to do PRs.
We’re all trying to save those for
the qualifiers and, hopefully, the
state meet.”
Junior Jacklyn Xavier, who tied
Woonsocket sophomore Quinn
Harlan in the 200 (27.2), teamed
with sophomores Katie Wandrey,
Jaylynne Thomas and Katherine
Remavich on the victorious 4 x
100 relay (52.8).
Other first-place point-getters
for the Clippers (10-1 overall)
included junior Amy Laverty in the
1,500; and Hannah Ratcliffe in the
pole vault.
For the Novans, Harlan earned
double-victor status after reigning
in the 100 dash, while teammate
Tara Rochefort gleaned the hammer toss and discus; and Ashley
Martinez the shot put (29-11).
Burrillville collected a pair of
wins, thanks to senior captain
Betsy Dumais in the 800 (2:34.8)
and classmate Catherine Keable in
the javelin (84-6).

Bulls grab 99-92 win over Cavs in Game 1
TOM WITHERS
AP Sports Writer
CLEVELAND — Derrick Rose scored 25
points and Pau Gasol added 21, leading the
Chicago Bulls to a 99-92 victory over the
short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1
of the Eastern Conference semifinals on
Monday night.
Looking like the MVP he was before being
slowed by knee injuries, Rose helped the Bulls
swipe home-court advantage from the Cavs,
who were missing starters Kevin Love and
J.R. Smith.
Saints
Continued from page B1
The other source of concern for Davies on
this afternoon was defense. All told, the
Patriots wound up committing six errors
along with a handful of mental errors that
may have not showed up in the scorebook,
but made the coaching staff take note.
Cooper coached number of the St.
Raphael players when they played for
Darlington Girls Softball. He specifically
mentioned Alexis Viera, Kamryn LaBree,
Mary Beth Mennucci and Brianna
O’Rourke.
“We were the first team in Darlington
Girls Softball to play fast-pitch and we made
it to the state finals,” recalled Cooper. “I
wanted to give St. Raphael a game. A lot of
the girls walk by and smile and say ‘Hey
coach.’”
Unlike its previous two games, St.
Raphael got off to a tremendous start. After
striking for a run in the first, the Saints
struck for five runs in the top of the third.
The frame was highlighted by back-to-back,
two-run singles by O’Rourke and Ashley
Simmons. Both hits came with two outs.
Jimmy Butler added 20 points and banked
in a contested jumper with 30 seconds left as
the Bulls closed it out.
Kyrie Irving scored 30 points and LeBron
James added 19 and 15 rebounds for
Cleveland, playing its first game since Love
— one of the Cavs' Big 3 — was lost for the
remainder of the postseason with a shoulder
injury.
Game 2 is Wednesday night.
The Cavs only trailed by four points in the
final minutes, but they forced several 3-point
attempts and James missed a tough layup with
51 seconds left.
Viera paced the Saints’ 15-hit attack with
a 4-for-5 showing while LaBree added a
double and a triple. Kaylee Sylvestre once
again went the distance on the mound for
SRA, striking out eight.
“Kaylee came out and threw strikes right
away. We jumped on them early and I think
that took the wind out of them,” said SRA
coach Ron LaBree after his squad improved
to 8-1 in Division II-East.
Before the bottom of the third, Cooper
told his players “we’re not getting shut out
in our house.” Davies would have to wait
until the bottom of the fifth as Waleska Kelly
led off with a base hit and came around to
score on a double by freshman Taylor
Moreau.
Madison Cooper doubled home Davies’
second run in the sixth with the third run
coming on a run-scoring groundout by
Victoria Lopes. Kelly finished with two hits.

Broncos split series with Rogers
BONA FIDE HOME INSPECTIONS
BURRILLVILLE – Rogers High
evened up their season series with
Burrillville on Monday at Eccleston
Field, beating the Broncos 6-5, getting
revenge three days after the Broncos
earned a 3-1 win in Newport.
Burrillville outhit Rogers nine to
eight and drew six walks off Vikings
starter Tim Pratt, but couldn’t get the
key hit that would break the game open,
leaving 13 men on base.
Burrillville’s Justin Deschamps had
two hits, including a double, with a run
and an RBI. Sam Hetu tripled, walked
and scored two runs, and Antwan
Dearden also had two hits.
Michael Keable was charged with
the loss, going two innings with one
walk, four strikeouts and one run.
The Broncos tooks a 2-0 lead in the
first when Tyler Loynds singled, stole
second, and came home on a single by
Chad Stone. Josh DiChiaro also scored
on an error in the inning.
But Rogers rallied for three runs in
the second and never trailed after that.
Trailing by three runs in the seventh,
Burrillville almost mounted a comeback
with Deschampss double and a sacrifice
fly by Slade Sylvestre, but Pratt got
Tyler Loynds to fly out to end the
threat.
In Friday’s game, Antwan Dearden
drove in the go-ahead run to give
Burrillville the lead in the eighth inning,
and the Broncos hung on to beat Rogers
3-1.
After Taylor Chamberlin singled,
Dearden came to the plate with and
banged a triple that sent home
Chamberlin.
Dearden went 2-4, drove in one and
scored one run.
Burrillville’s Colin Murphy was masterful on the mound with 11 strikeouts,
no earned runs, three hits and five walks
over 5 2/3 innings, and Mark Stead got
the win in relief, throwing 2 1/3 innings
of shutout ball. He struck out one,
walked none and surrendered two hits.
The lone run of the game for Rogers
crossed the plate in the first inning on
an RBI single by Aaron Johnson.

2B – Mousseau 2, Elijah Brackett, Evan Masse.
NORWICH, Conn. – Tolman High
improved to 5-2 on Saturday when they
traveled to Dodd Stadium and shut out
Scituate, 3-0.
Tigers starter Peter Microulis helped
his own cause in the first inning reaching base with a single, and later scoring
on a sacrifice fly by his battery-mate
Ricky Bourdeau.
That was all the offense Tolman
would need, but they got two insurance
runs in the third, when Alex Lopez
scored on an error, and Nate Gagnon
came home on a suicide squeeze bunt
by Joel Negron.
Microulis threw a complete game
shutout, facing 26 batters and allowing
just three hits and two walks, while
striking out three.

Mousseau powers Novans to win
WOONSOCKET – Senior righty
Josh Mousseau produced quite an outing for himself, and Woonsocket High,
on Monday afternoon.
He scattered seven hits with a walk
and an astonishing 13 strikeouts in a
complete-game outing to lift the Villa
Novans to a superb 8-5 Division I-A triumph over Middletown at Renaud
Field.
But that wasn’t all. At the plate, he
went 3-for-4 with two doubles, five RBI
and two runs scored as WHS improved
to 4-6 in league action.
Actually, junior catcher Kyle
Beaulieu, complemented his batterymate’s success, going 2-for-4 with an
RBI and three runs.
Teammates Elijah Brackett and Evan
Masse also managed two-baggers in the
victory.
SOUTH KINGSTOWN –
Cumberland High jumped out to a phenomenal 7-0 cushion in the top of the
first frame, but couldn’t hold on to it
during an emotionally-exhausting 11-7
loss to South Kingstown at Old
Mountain Field on Monday.
The Clippers actually outhit the
Revels, 11-10, but couldn’t record the
big hit when they needed it in the middle innings of the Division I-B clash.
Senior Kyle Opiekun did close at 2for-3 with an RBI and a run, while
classmate Ryan O’Neill went 1-for-4
with a two-run triple, but those weren’t
enough. Junior Josh Brodeur added a
three-bagger and a walk, and Jax
Domante finished 1-for-4 with a run for
the Clippers (6-3).

Lincoln rolls past Saints
LINCOLN – Lincoln High manufactured a five-run flurry in the back
half of the sixth frame to post a decisive
7-1 Division I-A victory over St.
Raphael Academy at Chet Nichols
Memorial Field on Monday.
Senior Mason Palmieri started the
surge with a solo blast, while classmate
Ryan Havunen ripped a two-run triple

league action. On the mound, Ryan
Brehio scattered four hits and fanned a
quartet in a complete-game outing.
