Whitey’s lover Davis

Charlestown sweep nets 20

Sentencing brings one chapter in Bulger saga to a close Despite heading to jail, Catherine Greig’s lawyer says she has no regrets, was in love with Bulger Victims’ families say they’re satisfied with sentence

BOSTON. A police sweep in and

around Charlestown yesterday morning netted 20 people accused of being involved in drug dealing and gang activity. Local police and federal agents seized “large levels” of heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana, cash and three guns, according to Boston police. Those arrested range in age from 17 to 69. Police Commissioner Ed Davis said the sweep, dubbed Operation Tourniquet, should send a message. METRO

Quincy woman poses as boy for sexual tryst

Greig is shown on the night of her capture, after 16 years on the lam with reputed mobster James “Whitey” Bulger.

QUINCY. A Quincy woman is ac-

cused of posing as a young boy in an effort to have sex with a young girl. Carissa Hads, 24, posed as a 17-year-old boy on a social networking site in 2010 and became involved in a relationship with a 15year-old girl in West Virginia, according to a federal complaint. During a meeting in Pennsylvania the teen girl said she was sexually assaulted by Hads and then the two had sex during a trip to West Virginia. However, the victim said “he” did not get undressed.

Greig’s notebook containing a list of home repair items was entered into evidence at her sentencing yesterday.

New roomie for Wilkerson? BOSTON. Former state Sen.

Dianne Wilkerson may get a new roommate. While it will ultimately be the decision of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Catherine Greig’s attorney said he believes she will be sent to a Connecticut prison. The federal facility in

Danbury, Conn., is the only women’s federal prison in New England and is also home to Wilkerson. She was sentenced on to 42 months for attempted extortion charges last year. Greig was held at a Rhode Island jail during her case hearings. METRO/MN

Catherine Greig is going to spend nearly eight years behind bars, but going to prison may not be the hardest part for the 61-year-old. Being apart from her boyfriend, alleged fugitive mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, will prove to be difficult if she’s as in love with the 82year-old as her lawyer says. “She’s in love with the guy,” said Kevin Reddington, Greig’s defense attorney. “She does not regret living her life with him.” Part of Reddington’s defense of Greig has been that she was so in love with him that she fell victim to him. “The point is Catherine Greig fell in love with Mr. Bulger,” Reddington told Judge Douglas Woodlock during her sentencing hearing in federal court yesterday. Woodlock didn’t buy the reasoning and sentenced Greig to eight years in jail, a $150,000 fine and three years of supervised release. “I’m imposing a sentence for deliberate choices that were harmful to the community,” Woodlock said. “We are all responsible for what we do. We all make choices.” Greig showed no emotion as she was sentenced. U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts Carmen Ortiz also did not buy Reddington’s argument. “Just because you love someone doesn’t mean that you get to break the law and then get away with it,” Ortiz said. “This was not a romantic saga. This was a serious case.”

Whitey’s next

James “Whitey” Bulger is the next target of the U.S. Attorney’s office.

“She absolutely stands by her man.” KEVIN REDDINGTON, SPEAKING ABOUT GREIG

Greig and Bulger were on the run for 16 years and dated before they fled from Boston when he was indicted. They fled across the country and eventually settled in an apartment in Santa Monica not far from the beach. While there, they took on other identities and lived like a retired couple. Prosecutors said she would run to the pharmacy to fill Bulger’s prescriptions and would cook for him. Prosecutors said agents recovered Greig’s notebook from the apartment shortly after the couple was arrested last year. One of the pages lists errands including “change sheets” and “vitamins.” Reddington said Greig doesn’t believe Bulger is guilty of the crimes he is accused of, which include being connected to 19 murders. He also said he thinks Greig thinks going to prison for living with Bulger was worth it. MICHAEL NAUGHTON

U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz said that prosecutors are now focused on being prepared for Bulger’s trial later this year. “Keeping our eye on the ball. We’re getting ready for trial. We’ve got a trial date in November and we’ve got another team getting ready to go,” she said. Bulger’s attorneys and prosecutors are due in court next week for a status conference. The 82-year-old is set to go to trial in November.

Victims’ families share ‘cruel’ words Family members of James “Whitey” Bulger’s alleged victims were given the chance to speak during Greig’s sentencing yesterday in what became an outpouring of emotion that was pent up for 16 years. “Catherine, you’re a dirty bitch,” said Steven Davis, whose sister Debra was allegedly killed by Bulger. Greig’s attorney had filed a request this week to bar the family members from speaking, claiming that they are not direct victims of Greig’s harboring or identity fraud crimes. However, Judge Douglas Woodlock said he considered the history involved in the case and used his discretion to allow them to speak. He also said “it’s

$150K Judge Woodlock ordered Greig to pay a $150,000 fine within 60 days as part of her sentence. the right thing.” He later called the families’ statements “cruel” and “reflecting vengeance.” “You’re a cold-hearted criminal,” said Tim Connors, whose father Edward was an alleged Bulger victim, “If I had a sister like you, I would have killed myself, too.” Conners was referencing Greig’s relative who committed suicide. Greig chose not to speak. METRO/MN

A troubled history BOSTON. The Bulger saga has been a stain on the history of many law enforcement agencies, particularly the Boston FBI office and the Department of Justice. Judge Woodlock said the case “illustrates how the criminal justice system simply broke down because insiders took control.” It was eventually revealed Bulger was an informant and was tipped off by a corrupt FBI agent before his indictment. U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz said the agencies have improved. METRO

Southie bad boy keepin’ it ‘Real’ IAN SPANIER PHOTOGRAPHY

morgan.rousseau@metro.us

Kane, seated third from the left, is hoping to get his life on track by joining the cast of MTV’s “The Real World.”

Growing up South Bostonstyle can make you a little rough around the edges. At least that’s how it was for Brandon Kane, a Southie boy who hopes to get his life on track after a year of drug-fueled recklessness. The cure? Reality TV, of course. Kane, now a Quincy resident, has joined the cast of “The Real World: St. Thomas,” which premieres on Wednesday, June 27 on MTV. “It’s been one of my favorite shows for a really long time, and I just thought it’d be kind of cool to take myself out of my comfort zone a little and discover more about who I am.” Kane’s story will revolve around the turmoil he’s faced in life, and how he hopes to move forward from a devastating breakup. “It was really the first time in my life that I had anyone that ever really said ‘I love you,’ or showed that they cared. So letting go of that tormented me.” A rough patch followed, with Kane turning to drugs, picking fights in bad neighborhoods, and, as he puts it, “sleeping with anything that walked.” “I was just trying to fight her out of my system,” he said. With tattoos galore and gauged ears, it’s easy to won-

You have seen some kids with tattoos in past seasons, but really you haven’t seen anything like me, and I’m proud of the fact that I stand out so much. It gives me an extra boost.” Kane’s personal style is derived from one of his favorite musicians, Travis Barker of Blink-182. “(Barker) and Tommy Lee have been my two biggest inspirations that I’ve based my style off of. They really helped me be OK with who I am, and my image; especially (Barker).” This season’s “Real World,” which is in its 27th year, follows Kane and six others.

A former Penn State assistant football coach testified in the Jerry Sandusky child sexual abuse trial yesterday that he saw Sandusky naked in a campus locker room shower sexually molesting a young boy. “There was no way that his genitals were not right up against that young boy’s rear end,” Mike McQueary, one of the most anticipated witnesses in the trial of Penn State’s former football defensive coordinator, told the Pennsylvania jury of the 2001 incident. Earlier in the second day of testimony in the closely watched trial, a sobbing 18-yearold witness called by the prosecution told jurors that Sandusky had befriended him as a boy, took him to his house and began to sexually abuse him. The witness said he met Sandusky when he was about 10 or 11 years old through the Second Mile charity that Sandusky founded. He described

Prosecutors on Clemens trial: It’s about lies WASHINGTON. Federal prosecutors in the perjury trial of former pitching ace Roger Clemens urged jurors yesterday to use common sense and not to fall for the “entangled web of lies” he weaved to protect his reputation. Clemens, 49, is on trial for the second time on federal charges of lying in 2008 to the House of Representatives’ Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which was investigating drug use in Major League Baseball. Prosecutors made closing arguments as jurors prepared to begin deliberations after nearly two months of testimony. “What is this case about?” Assistant U.S. Attorney Gilberto Guerrero asked. “This case is not about Roger Clemens’ greatness. It is about [him] lying ... to protect his legacy.” Clemens is among the biggest names implicated in drug use in baseball. REUTERS

“I didn’t know what to do. With all the thoughts running through my head I kind of blacked out, I didn’t want it to happen.” VICTIM 1 being sexually abused by Sandusky, including oral sex, adding, “I didn’t want it to happen.” Two witnesses in the trial

have described being sexually abused by Sandusky as boys, and six more alleged victims are due to testify. McQueary became the first bystander to tell jurors he saw Sandusky molesting a boy. McQueary, then a graduate assistant football coach, testified that he had gone to the Lasch Football Building on the Pennsylvania State University campus to drop off some shoes and do some work late on a Friday in February 2001. When he entered, he said, he heard “smacking sounds, very much skin-on-skin smacking sounds,” said McQueary. He said he could see, through the reflection in a mirror, the shower room. He told jurors he saw a naked young boy bracing himself against the shower wall. Sandusky, also naked, was behind him, holding the boy around the waist and moving against him, McQueary testified.

Farmville’s Zynga withers on Wall St. Nasdaq halted short-sales of Zynga Inc. yesterday as shares of the social gaming company plummeted 11.8 percent on increased concerns that the craze for games on Facebook has already passed its peak. The San Francisco-based producer of games such as “Farmville” and “Hidden Chronicles,” played by millions of Facebook users, is suffering as gamers switch to mobile phones for entertainment. Zynga plunged below $5 a share for the first time yesterday, reaching a low of $4.78. Nasdaq issued an alert shortly before 10 a.m. alerting traders that the stock had tripped a “circuit breaker” prohibiting short sales. The ban will be in effect through today. The sell-off came after an analyst at Cowen & Co. published a damaging report yesterday predicting that the

market for games on Facebook was in an “accelerating user tailspin.” “We believe that interest in Facebook-based gaming may have reached a negative inflection point,” Cowen & Co. analyst Doug Creutz wrote, “as more casual gamers migrate to mobile platforms.” In December, Zynga took advantage of the enthusiasm for Facebook and interactive online games with an initial public offering that valued the company at $9 billion. Since then, Facebook’s messy IPO has dampened investors’ appetite for consumer Internet stocks. Yesterday’s trading disruption came less than a month after Nasdaq halted Zynga trading on May 18, when spooked investors dumped social Internet stock during Facebook’s glitchy IPO. REUTERS

ni Mubarak’s health has riveted Egyptians since he was sent to jail to serve a life sentence, a reminder that his legacy still hangs over the Arab world’s most populous nation days before a run-off election to choose his successor.

DEFENDING CHAMPIONS Missiles on rooftops, drought plans, fighter jets: London is prepared for the Olympics No other Games have ever had more extensive security plans HMS Ocean, the British Royal Navy’s largest battle ship, is a majestic sight. But during the Olympic Games, she won’t be stationed in the Thames just to entertain tourists. She’s there to fight off terrorists. “For terrorist groups like al Qaeda, London is a target in a way Beijing is not,” notes Margaret Gilmore, a counterterrorism expert at the Royal United Services Institute, a London think tank. “The authorities have sent the message that

they’re leaving no stone unturned and would even be willing to shoot down a plane.” The London Olympics feature the most extensive security arrangements any Olympic Games have ever seen. There are surface-to-air missiles in parks and on rooftops. Fighter jets on standby. Biological radiation detection systems. Security guards and 12,500 police officers will be patrolling the city, while 13,500 military personnel will detect bombs, patrol

airspace and guard the Thames. “We’ll have security guards in 90 locations, working on everything from crowd control to car searches,” says G4S Director Mark Hamilton. “We’ve spent the past 17 months developing our capability for the Games, and right now we’re training some 30,000 staff.” G4S is the London Games’ private security provider. “Olympic organizers imagine the worst-case scenario, including nuclear attacks,” ex-

plains Stephen Graham, a professor at Newcastle University and author of the new book “Cities Under Siege.” In addition to terrorists, the London organizers have to worry about domestic troublemakers. “In the United Kingdom of clockwork control and domestication, we’re some of the ‘unpatriotic ones’ who find the 2012 Olympics, with the ensuing spectacle of wealth, harmful developments and escalating police state, frankly offen-

sive,” wrote Britain’s Informal Anarchist Federation in a statement, vowing to sabotage the Games. Olympics have always involved security precautions, but the big upgrade took place after 9/11. The 2004 Athens Games’ security arrangements cost 10 times as much as security for the Sydney Games in 2000. London’s security arrangements will cost the taxpayer $867 million, or $92,500 per athlete. “This has gotten out of control,” says Graham. “Fear has been exploited by security companies eager to sell their services. We’re spending money that we don’t have on this even as we’re shutting youth clubs for lack of money.” Indeed, community organizers are up in arms against the rooftop missiles. But Boris Johnson, London’s mayor, has an upbeat countermeasure: Inspired by Queen Elizabeth’s successful Jubilee, Johnson has announced that London will put up 638 square meters of building decorations.

Q&A anaylsis

Shiites, al Qaeda, rioters We spoke with Leo Gleser, CEO of Israeli security firm ISDS, which worked on the 2004 Athens Olympics. What are the most important elements of Olympic security today?

The threat to London’s 2012 Olympic Games are primarily groups that have the capacity to launch cyber terror attacks. Among those behind these attacks are al Qaeda, Shiite organizations with backing from Iran, Muslims in London that join

Cheerful ambassadors

forces with outside groups, as well as local British citizens who might have been involved in London’s 2011 riots. What are the security arrangements that most visi- tors don’t notice?

The largest part of physical security arrangements is visible and functions as a deterrent. But other aspects of security aren’t visible. Visitors don’t notice intelligence-gathering, coordination of visas and permits, and activities abroad. Intelligence agencies are involved, which is something you don’t see as Gleser a visitor.

There’s also the prospect of drought: 9 million spectators need to be kept hydrated, so the security precautions include huge water stockpiles.” MWN/EB

Today, Carrie Fisher needs a direction (any direction), Alec Baldwin has plans for himself, Rosie O’Donnell has a question and Conan O’Brien is wishful dieting. @CarrieFFisher: The only exercise I get is running aground.

Less than 24 hours before he was scheduled to host Monday night’s Bideawee Gala in New York City, former “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier canceled on the animal welfare charity. (While he declined to give an explanation to donors who paid up to $1,000 per ticket, suffice it to say we sincerely doubt it was a work commitment.) Fortunately, Howard Stern’s wife, Beth, stepped in — and naturally, Stern had something to say about it during his Tuesday morning broadcast. “A lot of celebrities agree to do something for a charity, and at the last minute they cancel, leaving the charity stranded,” Stern said. “I do lose respect for people when they do this. They always have a great excuse. I don’t know. Send out a tweet and say ‘I’m so sorry.’” Oh Adrian, we’re dying to know: How does it feel to be out-classed by Howard Stern?

situation, and I saw I was developing negative feelings for someone who doesn’t even know me, and I gave it to the dog,” explained 50 of his now beloved miniature schnauzer. You know, there’s something very zen about this. Next week, we’ll be introducing the Metro therapy goldfish, Kim and Kanye.

We read a lot of celebrity Twitter feeds around here. And while there’s the occasional winner — adopt us, Joan Rivers! — most are pecked out by soulless publicists between Diet Cokes and air kisses.

JR Ewing

Bobby Ewing

Played by Larry Hagman

Played by Patrick Duffy

The eldest son in a family of oil tycoons and ranchers, JR was the most ruthless (and possibly drunkest, and most womanizing) — to the point where his sister-in-law famously shot him. “How many people do you know working at 80? And doing a job that they love with the people he loves?” Hagman says when asked why he signed on to a “Dallas” reboot. “Oh, yeah, I’m a very lucky man.”

The youngest Ewing, a romantic married to a rival family’s daughter, was torn between the family’s oil interests and tending to the homestead of Southfork ranch. His “favorite son” status ignited the ire of JR, leading to the brothers’ feud. “What Cynthia [Cidre, head writer and co-executive producer] did in the script that we have now is she brought the [original] cast and the new cast, which are grown-up versions of the old cast, back to that start-

room. It’s amazing to see [the original cast] and their characters come back to life. And to be a part of it, it’s very special.”

“It was like snapping your fingers, and we were Bobby and Sue Ellen and JR again with no interspersing time whatsoever in between.” PATRICK DUFFY, ON THE ORIGINAL CAST RETURNING TO THEIR ICONIC ROLES ON “DALLAS”

Christopher Ewing Played by Jesse Metcalfe The adopted son of Bobby and his first wife, Pam, Christopher is keenly aware that he is not a “real” Ewing, as John Ross likes to remind him. Christopher wants to restore the Ewing name by investing in alternative fuel technologies. “It’s like [the younger] characters are defined by who [the original characters] are and what they’ve already done in those last 14 seasons,” Metcalfe says. “We’re just kind of jumping off from that. Every bit of who Christopher is is part of Bobby, you know, and the same with [John Ross] and JR.”

I mean, the history, it electrified the

Roxbury Film Fest opens with an NFL player who became a director so he could tell his unique story

Director Matthew Cherry stayed in familiar territory with his feature film debut, “The Last Fall.� The opening film at this year’s Roxbury International Film Festival, it strives to show another side of the professional athlete. “People think because you made it to the NFL you are a millionaire,� says Cherry. “But the reality is that only 4 percent of players have careers that last longer than four years; 96 percent of players are retired in their mid-20s and they are trying to figure out the rest of their life. I wanted to show that untold story.� “The Last Fall� tells the story of Kyle Bishop, a pro football player who gets cut from his latest team. Forced to return to his hometown, Kyle (played by Lance Gross) tries to make sense of his life without football. It’s a story Cherry knows all too well. After playing on four different teams in three years, he saw himself facing life as a journeyman player and decided to make a change. Using

The film has been received well on the festival circuit, but what about the guys in the NFL? “There’s been amazing feedback from NFL players,� says Cherry. “That was my biggest concern: ‘Would the players receive it?’ But it’s a real story, and it came from the bottom of my heart. ... More players go through [it] than I initially thought. Showing it at SXSW and in Atlanta, we have always had two or three players at every screening; guys from all levels. From superstars to guys who were similar to me, and they could relate to it.� G. VALENTINO BALL letters@metro.us

Reviews have been kind But fans have issues with the plot holes We take a look at what went wrong Fair warning: MAJOR spoilers 20TH CENTURY FOX

W

arning: MAJOR spoilers ahead. So, Ridley Scott’s longawaited “Prometheus” is finally here, and the results are … disappointing. While visually stunning, the story — about a group of scientists heading into space in search of humankind’s origins — is overly complicated and filled with holes. Since we’re always looking to be helpful, here’s what we’d do differently:

Make it scarier. Scott continually referred to “Prometheus” as a horror movie in the lead-up to its release, yet the finished product is surprisingly short on scares, save for one fantastic surgery scene. A lot of this might have to do with the fact that, for most of the film, it’s not really clear what the threat is — aside from some very powerful wind.

Ease off the old-age makeup.

How to fix

‘Prometheus’ Michael Fassbender plays the ship’s android, David.

PEOPLE Join us for our

Open House June 19th 12pm-4pm!

Helping People

Unless there’s a scene of a younger Peter Weyland (Guy Pierce) that was cut from the film — and maybe that TED talk viral video was originally supposed to be included — it seems unnecessary to cast Pierce in the role just to cover him up with unconvincing prosthetics. What, there weren’t any suitable actors over the age of 60 available?

Kill off characters a little more respectfully. At the start of the film, we’re told there are 17 people on the Prometheus, and at the end there’s just one. Maybe starting

Keep it subtle Try to get your information across a bit more elegantly. The film really falters for the first time when the ship’s pilot, Janek (Idris Elba), shows up with some very succinct information about what’s in those mysterious vases he hasn’t seen in person and why the “engineers” he’s never met built them. Regardless of whether he could actually know this, the least the film could do is offer some clue of how he came to such a firm conclusion.

off with fewer characters would’ve made it possible to avoid instances like Janek’s two co-pilots (Emun Elliott and Benedict Wong) deciding to go down with the ship — despite there being a viable escape — just because the story needed them to not be around anymore.

Take it to the next level. Forget the obvious sequel (a post-prequel?) that the film sets up with Dr. Shaw flying the alien ship off to meet her makers. Next, it would be awesome to have her and the severed head of the android David (Michael Fassbender) star as wacky roommates on a laugh track-filled CBS sitcom.

Sidescroller LAWRENCE BONK LAWRENCE.BONK@METRO.US

O

nce a year, the entire video game industry piles into a VW bus and heads to sunny Los Angeles for the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo. It is here, at this magical conference center, that CEO and booth babe alike gather to discuss the future of gaming. Here is Metro’s rundown of what the big console manufacturers hope you’ll one day be spending your money on.

Nintendo Mario’s extended family spent the bulk of the show talking up their next gen system, the Wii U. It’s launching in time for the holidays and purportedly has more horsepower than both the 360 and the PS3. The Wii U Gamepad is essentially an iPad, complete with motion control,

THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN

Ellen Page stars in Sony's new game, “Beyond.”

The E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo shows us what’s in store for gamers in the coming year touch-screen support, NFC capabilities and many more bells and whistles. The system also works with all of those Wii remotes you’ve had laying around since Christmas 2006. Launch titles include a new Mario sidescroller, “Pikmin 3,” a horror game called “Zombi U” and “Assassin’s Creed III.” Verdict: Interesting tech, but weak launch lineup.

Microsoft

Sony

Microsoft seemed hellbent on proving that the Xbox 360 is now as ubiquitous to the living room as a futon. They talked up new apps like Internet Explorer and Xbox Music. They talked up their new smartphone integration system, SmartGlass. They didn’t talk up games too much, though. We still managed to get pretty excited for “Halo 4” and another “Gears of War” sequel. We are easily excitable. Verdict: SmartGlass has potential, but we are not sure if developers will actually work to realize it.

Just like Microsoft, Sony stayed mum on their eventual next gen system. The company did lay out some fantastic PS3 titles, though. Coming down the pike? An apocalyptic adventure called “Last of Us” by the makers of the Uncharted series, the beautifully cinematic “Beyond” which stars Ellen Page and a “God of War” prequel. Verdict: Major exclusives coming for PS3, but Vita ended up short shrift. Metro does not endorse the opinions of the author, or any opinions expressed on its pages.

Cut your cancer risk at the grill this summer The heat from your grill may give you a juicy burger with a side of health troubles How to cook safely LIFESIZE

The American Institute for Cancer Research has issued warnings about grilling meat, fish and poultry — including the beloved backyard barbecue burger. “There is enough experimental evidence to suggest that grilling certain foods increases cancer risk,” says AICR dietitian Alice Bender, M.S., R.D. “Muscle meats are the problem; substances are formed when these are grilled with intense heat. Cooking meats on any high temperature has the same effect — it’s just that grilling is traditionally done on high heat all the way and is therefore riskier.” What happens is that intense heat causes a reaction in the muscle proteins and two carcinogens — possibly DNA-altering, cancer-causing substances — form: heterocyclic amines and polycyclic aromatic

How to grill safer Bender offers these tips: Use a marinade “Marinating for 30 minutes or more reduces the formation of HCAs.”

Charred meat may up your risk of cancer.

hydrocarbons. The fattier the meat, the higher the risk. “When fat drips, it causes the flames to leap up and increases the temperature,” explains Bender. There is no evidence of any risks with grilling nonmeat items: “Eat all the charred veggies that you want,” Bender says, but never eat charred Partially precook meat “This will cut down the amount of time the meat is in high heat. Finish off on the grill for that cookout flavor.” Use lower temperatures “Grill slower and use a lower flame” to lessen the buildup

Running after Scott Jurek In a sport populated by egotists and eccentrics, ultrarunner Scott Jurek seems to be the exception. He’s a nice guy, a valedictorian and a vegan. At times, in his new memoir, “Eat & Run,” he seems bashful about calling himself a champion — though the title was excruciatingly hard-earned. But while eccentrics run for pleasure, the 38-year-old Jurek, who once ran 165 miles in 24 hours, runs for pain. “I wanted to use it as a tool to pry myself open,” he writes. He spoke to us from his home in Colorado. You write about overcoming severe pain and injuries while running 100-mile races. When do you know that you have to stop?

I like to say that there’s a difference between discomfort and

guess that’s the key differentiator. Most of the effects of discomfort are not going to be long-term. So it’s learning that the human body has limits, but those limits sometimes are a lot higher or a lot farther than we think.

How can urbanites fit more running into their lifestyles?

Ultramarathoning can become an important way just to transport people. In other cultures, that’s how they get around. Exercise was part of a lifestyle, a way of life, and now we’re so far removed from that. I’m a big fan of what I call “errand running” — commuting via running with a backpack. It’s a way that people can fit the benefits of running into their busy lifestyles. And it can actually be faster. [Laughs] Especially in the city.

mann couldn’t be more clueless. He says Democrats want to force people to do things they wouldn’t ordinarily do. That’s the GOP in a nutshell. With no unions, do you think wages will go up out of the goodness of corporations hearts? Do you think the hours a person will have to work to pay off his bills and take care of his family will decrease? Health benefits? Go to the emergency room. Paid vacations? Be happy you still have a job. The banks have robbed our country and continue to do so with no executives being imprisoned — and Republicans blame hard-working union workers. Republicans should wear sponsorship

of the discussion over Republican Party loyalty is that both writers have their “facts straight.” Mr. Khoury recites the platform perfectly, while Mr. Connell’s description demonstrates how those policies have spelled disaster for America. This smoke screen has attracted many believers who claim we can solve our debt crisis simply by cutting taxes, even while fighting endless wars funded with borrowed money. The real tragedy is that there is no end

Stating that the Republican party does not want to “end the social safety net” but rather they want to change the entitlement programs to make them sustainable and reduce government waste and fraud in the social safety net is a crock. Mr. Khoury needs to be reminded that Social Security is not an entitlement. Social Security does not have any government money in it — it is funded solely by the citizens that work their

When faced with some rather stiff opposition where your work or career is concerned, the best way out isn’t to buckle under, but to toughen up. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. Someone might intentionally give a friend of yours some bad information in hopes of manipulating him or her. Don’t stand idly by and do nothing. Inform your friend. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. An alliance that is predicated solely upon a mutual, material interest could get complicated. In order to avoid a crisis, all parties must pull together. Aries March 21-April 19. You might get your own way by being aggressive, but you’re likely to ask yourself afterward if it was worth it, when you’re celebrating without a friend in the world. Taurus April 20-May 20.

Is trading Youkilis worth the hassle? Trade value dropping off by the day What could Sox get back in return at this point? Third/first base Boston’s only real spot with depth JIM ROGASH/GETTY IMAGES

As the calendar winds down to July 31, the prevailing trade winds seem poised to blow Kevin Youkilis out of town. The Pittsburgh Pirates are the latest team to join the Youk watch, with FoxSports’ Ken Rosenthal reporting the improbably contending Bucs, who are making noise in the NL Central despite virtually no production from their corner infielders, might be on the buying side of the trade deadline for the first time in two decades. The Dodgers and Phillies are among the other trade suitors for Youkilis, who has been forced into lame duck status by the rapid emergence of Will Middlebrooks and the semiimpending return of outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford, which would essentially destroy the Jenga-esque platoon of Youkilis, Middlebrooks and Adrian Gonzalez between third, first and right field. But is a trade really a foregone conclusion? Is a pitcher such as James McDonald or Aaron Harang on the way as Youkilis heads west — or really west? Certainly, Youkilis appears to be something of a liability for the Red Sox at this point, advancing in age, unable to stay healthy for an entire season, and now hitting just .231

Downhill trend Kevin Youkilis has been injured throughout much of the 2012 season. In just 36 games this year, Youk has shown his age (33): .224 is Youkilis’ batting average this season. He has just four home runs and 13 RBIs during the 2012 campaign.

staying over .500 with 100 games to play, which is usually the refrain of a seller. But in the first season of the second wild card, and in a division playing weaker than expected, the Red Sox might still be every bit the buyers as their prospective trade partners. And with every day that passes with Youkilis failing to catch fire, does his trade value sink to a level where the return on a deal makes trading

him a less-than-lateral move? Perhaps the simple math of addition by subtraction, moving Youkilis to allow Middlebrooks to play every day, while allowing the struggling Gonzalez to focus on his primary defensive position — and by extension, his hitting — would be enough of a boost to carry the Red Sox back into contention. Or, perhaps, the Red Sox trade Youkilis, who they aren’t intending to bring back in 2013, and he turns into their version of Kendrick Perkins for a grateful National League team, while the Red Sox find themselves lamenting their lack of corner infield depth in September as another postseason slides by. Sometimes, the best trade is the one you don’t make. JEFF GOLDBERG sports@metro.us

Welker puts on big smile Wide receiver claims to be happy despite contract issues with Pats In no way jealous of Gronkowski

Wes Welker isn’t publically upset with his contract status — for now.

New England’s favorite franchised man took the field in Foxboro yesterday, but it was the way he did it — with a big smile — that should add a cherry on top. Welker could very well hold a grudge against the Patriots. He could hold out like many franchised players have in the past. He could demand more than the $9.5 million he’s getting this season, with the rest of his career up in the air. But none of that has happened, as Tom Brady’s favorite target is only thinking about minicamp and taking the field with his

teammates. “It went pretty well,” Welker said after the first day of camp. “We were able to get out there and really execute together and really work on some things. Overall I think it was a good day, we still have some work to do but I think it was a good start for us.” It wasn’t Welker, but tight end Rob Gronkowski who got a fat contract extension last week (six years, $54 million — time to party!). That didn’t cause Welker, who insists Gronkowski deserves it, any bit of jealousy. “I thought it was a great deal,” Welker said. “You need a guy like that around here for a long time. And he’s such a great player for us and

having him around for a while is a great deal for us as an organization. So I’m very happy for him.” The Patriots have until July 16 to come to a long-term agreement with Welker, but neither side is giving it much thought — at least publicly. “I’m not worried about that at all,” Welker said. “Right now I’m here, and I’m happy, and you know, I’m just here to try to help our team win in 2012.” “It is what it is,” Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said of the July deadline. “The rules are the rules. So whatever they are, we’ll comply with them.” JIMMY TOSCANO sports@metro.us

Bill speaks — sort of Patriots head coach Bill Belichick touched on a number of topics yesterday, including the departure of wide receiver Chad Ochocino and the absence of offensive lineman Brian Waters. “With the players we released, we feel like for whatever reason, it’s time to move on and there are other options that are better for the team,” Belichick said, not offering the details of No. 85’s release. “All of the players are here except for Brian Waters. He’s excused for personal reasons.”

Patriots pick up Ballard Tight end Jake Ballard, who the Giants waived because of a failed physical, was picked up by the Patriots yesterday afternoon, according to his agent Blake Baratz. Ballard likely won’t play in 2012 due to an ACL injury. METRO

Playing with a full deck

+

Your roof has potential to be a serious summer entertaining space What to know before you invest

I

t’s officially drinking on the roof season. And while plastic lawn chairs and a cooler on the blacktop will certainly work, perhaps it’s time to consider a more permanent arrangement. We checked in with general contractor David Posternack of Philly-based Match Remodeling for a little roof deck 101.

More space, less hassle Compared to a traditional addition, a roof deck adds significant living space without turning your place into a construction zone. “People will talk about adding a third story to their home, but that’s a pretty major project,” says Posternack. “When I’m inside a house doing the bathroom or the

kitchen, I’m invading my clients’ space. One of the wonderful things about a roof deck is they never see us. We draw up the design, and they see us in three weeks.”

Expect to pay It’s cheaper than a traditional addition, but roof deck materials don’t come cheap — and you don’t want them to. Posternack recommends a premium composite material made from wood and plastics that doesn’t warp or require maintenance — important factors when the structure is three stories high in the open air — but it does drive the price up.

Want your deck to stand out? Don’t have much of a backyard? Look up for some lounge space. ISTOCK

Start with a good roof When it comes time to get a new roof, you will need to remove the deck. “It’s a real pain,” admits Posternack. “If your roof is over 3 or 4 years old, put a new one on first.” After that, don’t worry about the deck causing roof damage. “We build the deck exactly the same way as the house is made. Everything is going from brick wall to brick wall; nothing is touching the roof.”

Posternack recommends ditching the traditional spindles and exploring different railing options. “The biggest opportunity for people to get creative is the railing. It’s the owners’ way to put their own personal stamp on it, because you’re kind of limited by terms of code — L&I doesn’t want me getting too creative up there.”

IMPROVING YOUR CREDIT SCORE Wallter Hang Pot, $125, www.shophorne.com

By Attorney

George Warshaw f managing your ďŹ nances in today’s economy isn’t hard enough, add the need to manage your credit score.

I

That thing called a “FICO Score� can cost or save you money. When mortgage lenders quote rates they generally presume a certain numerical level of a credit score. Drop below that level and the interest rate offered goes up. Drop too much below and you may not get a loan at any price.

Fiesta Dinnerware Lemongrass Covered Casserole, $50, www.homerlaughlin.com

Urban Outfitters Stella Floor Lamp, $119, www.urban outfitters.com

To get a good score ďŹ rst make sure you pay your bills on time. I’ve recommended in past articles the virtue of putting all credit cards on an automatic monthly minimum payment taken directly from your bank account. You won’t miss a payment that way and you can always pay more. Less well known is the balance you run on each credit card. Let’s say you have two credit cards each with a $10,000 credit limit. You owe nothing on one and $6,000 on the other. Your credit score might be better if each card had a $3,000 balance. Scoring formulas look at how much of each card and all cards that you use.

Heath Ceramics Vases, $22 each, www.heathceramics.com

Try to keep the amount owed well below 40% of the allowable credit on each card and below 40% of the total owed on all cards.
