Rezwan Ferdaus, 26, of Ashland, was sentenced to 17 years in jail during a hearing in federal court in Boston, according to the Globe. The 17-year sentence was agreed upon by both Ferdaus' defense team and prosecutors after a plea agreement was reached. Earlier this year, Ferdaus agreed to plead guilty, court documents showed. He pled guilty to attempting to damage and destroy a federal building by means of an explosive and attempting to provide material support to terrorists. METRO

City waits to hear when ‘Whitey’ will stand trial Bulger’s request to delay trial taken under advisement Judge: I will rule in a few days Alleged victims’ families worry time is running out For nearly 20 years the question was “Where’s Whitey?” But now the question is “When’s Whitey’s trial?” J.W. Carney Jr., attorney for alleged mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, tried to delay the trial date a second time from March to November 2013 during a hearing Thursday. Carney again argued that the thousands and thousands of documents turned over by prosecutors as evidence are too much for him to review by the scheduled trial date. “If you asked me to high jump 10 feet, I couldn’t do it. If you asked me to run a mile in

Bulger’s attorney says he has to go over more than 364,000 documents as part of evidence in order to prepare for trial.

three and a half minutes, I can’t do it. If you ask me to be prepared for trial in March 2013, I couldn’t do it,” Carney told Judge Richard Stearns, adding he also must interview witnesses and prepare for direct and cross examinations. “A fair trial ... begins with allowing defense counsel to be prepared to try the case,” Carney said. Stearns began Thursday’s hearing by saying he is keeping “an open mind,” and closed by saying that he

J.W. Carney Jr.

“thinks this case needs some firm management.” Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian Kelly said during the hearing that there was no need for another trial delay and that the March date is set for almost two years after Bulger’s capture. “This is not some complicated securities matter … This is murder and mayhem by his client,” said Kelly. Stearns said he would issue a decision in two or three days.

The arguments made during Thursday’s hearing worried some of the family members of Bulger’s alleged victims. “My hopes are in the trash, to be honest with you,” said Tom Donahue, whose father was allegedly gunned down by Bulger in 1982. Donahue said he thinks the judge will rule to delay Bulger’s trial to later next year. “How long is Carney going to drag it on,” said Donahue. “I want to get this trial going.”

The 15-year-old victim told police she was playing with her younger brother in an East Boston playground Oct. 18 when she was robbed of her phone and $15 cash at knifepoint. When the girl got a replacement phone she noticed Velasquez had apparently accidentally posted photos of himself on her Facebook account.

Hub welcomes those Sandy stranded on the high seas NICOLASU CZARNECKI/METRO

Jeff and Heidi Smith were chipper as they stepped off of the Regatta cruise ship and onto solid ground Thursday in an unexpected stop three days after Hurricane Sandy swept across the Northeast. “(Heidi) was nearly blown off the ship. She was holding on, and her hair was flying. I was recording it. Then somebody ralphed right on the deck,” said Jeff, not at all peeved about the fact that a hurricane blew their vacation far off course to Boston. “We were supposed to go to Bermuda and back, but we didn’t do that. We were supposed to be in New York for two days, but the harbor turned out to be too dangerous to get a ship in, so here we are.” Heidi said there were a few nights of heavy duty rocking, which made it hard to sleep.

“For a minute I was wondering if we were going to make it,” she said. But like most of the stranded cruisers Metro spoke to Thursday, the Smiths said they planned to make the most of their short stint in the Hub. Londoners Eddie and Yvonne Josse were on the Regatta as well, and while they are eager to get to New York to see their family before flying back to England on Monday, they are trying to keep a positive attitude about this week’s debacle. “We’re hoping to meet some friends [in Boston] we met on a previous cruise,” said Yvonne, adding that the detour was just part of their “magical mystery tour.” “We really didn’t know if we were going to stay the night in one port, or sail to another,” she said.

Gas lines up, death toll on rise from hurricane Death toll up over 80 across North American, including 15 in Staten Island, NY Millions still without power Gas stations badly depleted GETTY IMAGES

New Yorkers awoke to the rumble of subway trains for the first time in four days on Thursday and the death toll continued to rise from the former Hurricane Sandy, one of the biggest and most devastating storms ever to hit the United States. Lines formed at gas stations amid fuel shortages around the U.S. Northeast and emergency utility crews struggled to reach the worst hit areas and restore power to millions of people. At least 82 people in North America died in the superstorm, which ravaged the northeastern United States on Monday, and officials said the count could climb higher as rescuers searched house-tohouse through coastal towns.

Cars, and individuals, lined up for miles to get gas across New York and New Jersey.

Authorities recovered 15 bodies from Staten Island, including two boys aged 4 and 2

swept from their mother’s arms by floodwaters. In all, 36 people died in New York City.

In hard-hit New Jersey, where oceanside towns saw entire neighborhoods swallowed by seawater and the Atlantic City boardwalk was destroyed, the death toll doubled to 12. About 4.7 million homes and businesses in 15 U.S. states were without power on Thursday, down from a high of nearly 8.5 million, which surpassed the record 8.4 million customers who went dark from last year’s Hurricane Irene. More than half of the gas stations in the city and New Jersey remained shut due to power outages and depleted fuel supplies. Before dawn, long lines formed at gas stations that were expected to open.

Sandy could cost $20B Disaster modeling company Eqecat estimates that monster storm Sandy caused up to $20 billion in insured losses and $50 billion in economic losses, the company said Thursday. The insured loss estimate is double what Eqecat forecast previously. The firm said subway and electrical outages will produce much

Along with Springsteen, whose songs often center on his upbringing in New Jersey, most of the performers are from areas hit by the storm. REUTERS

more substantial losses than had been expected. At the high end of the range, Sandy would rank as the fourth-costliest catastrophe ever in the United States, according to the Insurance Information Institute, behind Hurricane Katrina, the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Andrew. Eqecat's estimate is higher than AIR Worldwide, which projected insured losses up to $15 billion. REUTERS

2 ‘FLIGHT’ WHY DENZEL TOOK

The A-lister dissects his project choices while offering up some of his recurring dreams for analysis Playing a pilot struggling with addiction was ‘raw’ PARAMOUNT PICTURES

Denzel Washington stars as a troubled pilot in “Flight,” which opens Friday. Read the review on page 10.

W

e at least now know how Denzel Washington would answer the age-old question of which super power is better to have, invisibility or flight. “I have a flying dream. I’ve had it for most of my life,” Washington says, opening himself up to amateur dream interpreters everywhere. “Somehow I always end up near the city and I go underneath bridges. And I would just work my way down, and I’d stay under them. Then I would have the other part of the dream, it would be this takeoff forever, and I would be like,

Quoted

“I wouldn’t say it was easy. But you’re raw. It was just raw. Your nerves are raw.” WASHINGTON

‘Oh, I’ve got to stay below the street wires.’ And then I’m starting to go back up, but then, you know, I’ve got to get back below the wires. I don’t know what it means. I have no idea about what it means.”

Washington engages in a slightly different kind of flying in “Flight,” his latest film from director Robert Zemeckis. In it, the Oscar-winner portrays a talented but troubled pilot who brazenly lands a malfunctioning plane with minimal casualties — but he happens to be coming off a booze- and cocaine-fueled bender at the time. What unfolds is a man lauded as a hero and forced to face his demons at the same time. The role was definitely a challenge for Washington — but then again, he likes a challenge. “I wouldn’t say it was

easy,” he says of playing out the turmoil of his character’s life. “But you’re raw. It was just raw. Your nerves are raw.” And it certainly beats the alternative. “You know, tough spots for me are pictures I don’t want to be on,” he says. “When the people say, ‘What’s the hardest part of a movie?’ You know, if you’re on a movie and it’s like the third day and you go, ‘How many days have we been shooting?’ ‘Like, three.’ ‘How many more have we got to go?’ ‘117.’ That’s a tough movie for me. But this was an adventure.” NED EHRBAR/MWN

Keeping project promises As for what drew Washington to the project in the first place, it turns out making “Flight” was part of keeping a promise to an old, departed friend. “My agent, the late Ed Limato, the last two scripts he gave me were ‘Flight’ and ‘Safe House,’” Washington explains. “That was a part of it — a promise I made to him.”

Country comeback Reba McEntire is back with a new sitcom Life imitates art when her character moves to California

Reba McEntire has remained at the top of the country music stratum for nearly 40 years — not a small feat in a business that is always hungry to find the next hot young thing. “Well, it will sure keep you humble real quick by somebody saying, ‘Nope, you’re not young. You’re not sexy. Go do something else,’” the singer says. That’s not something the star has ever had to experience, but her character in the new sitcom “Malibu Country” sure has. In the show, McEntire plays Reba, a singer who put her career on hold while her husband became a country music superstar. When she finds out he has been cheating on

her, the fictional Reba moves her mom and the kids from Nashville to Malibu, where she attempts to reclaim her own dreams and a sense of self. It’s a similar situation — minus the infidelity — to what McEntire experienced when she moved her family to Los Angeles to reintroduce herself as a TV star on the sitcom “Re-

ba,” which ran from 2001-2007. “Some of the stories that happened with Shelby [McEntire’s son] and Narvel [her husband] and myself while we were [in L.A.], are translating that into this show,” McEntire says. For instance? “One night I was doing the taping of the show, and Narvel had to take Shelby to a school function. Narvel had a couple of bologna sandwiches and a paper sack and went to the country club-looking school campus, and here comes everybody with their ice coolers and caviar and tablecloths,” McEntire says. “So it was little things like that that were a huge adjustment for us coming to L.A.”

That other ‘Nashville’ While Reba fights ageism in the music industry on ABC’s “Malibu Country,” a similar battle is taking place on the network’s drama “Nashville,” which finds a country music queen (Connie Britton) and a rising new star (Hayden Panettiere) battling for the spotlight. Does the idea of dramatizing her behind-thescenes life in Music City have any appeal to Reba McEntire? “No,” she says, “I like this one better. I want to play an imaginary character having fun in Malibu. Now, guest starring on [‘Nashville’] — that would be a hoot. I’d like to do that.”

Rating: PG Grade: –—˜™š Wreck-It Ralph (Reilly), the bad guy of “Fix-It Felix, Jr.� — the most popular game in the arcade — is suffering a midlife crisis. After 30 years of wrecking a video apartment building only to watch Felix (McBrayer) take credit for fixing it, Ralph (Reilly) is in an existential funk. His job is to wreck, but he wants to be loved, to be a hero. After an inspiring Bad Guys Anonymous meeting, Ralph quits “Wreck-It Ralph� so that he can join video game “Hero’s Duty� in search of cred. He then partners with Vanellope (Silverman) to battle a bug that could destroy the entire arcade. It’s a can-do story wrapped in a retro gallery of video games and characters in a universe of jarring intensity and candy colors. But without breathing room, it drags like the come-down of a sugar high. RICHARD CROUSE

The movie follows the story of a lonely blacksmith (RZA) who unites with warriors and an assassin to destroy a group of traitors on a path of destruction.

With a killer soundtrack, likable characters and a smart, witty script, “The Man with the Iron Fists� is fun, over-the-top and visually pleasing, even for those who aren’t kung fu fans. For those who are, it’s the complete package. OLIVIA MORROW

‘Flight’ Director: Robert Zemeckis Cast: Denzel Washington, Nadine Velazquez Rating: R Grade: –—˜™š Is there another A-list leading man who explores the dark sides of his characters as often as Denzel Washington? Will Smith and Tom Cruise will occasionally let the heroic sides of their onscreen personas take a backseat, but Washington revels in mucking around in the mud. From “American Gangster� to “Safe House,� he crafts complex charac-

ters you wouldn’t want to sit next to on the bus. Washington manages to subtly capture the ego and hubris that allow his hotshot character in “Flight� to present a sober face to the public, even though the film’s visual language is frequently not as refined. A close-up of Washington’s hand grasping a mini bottle of vodka and the accompanying swoosh sound is something that should be in a commercial, not in a film about the effects of alcoholism. (Another recent release that deals with alcoholism, “Smashed,� is a much more touching and effective story about addiction.) As much as Washington is enjoyable, the movie could have been more concise. It flits around a half-dozen themes — two or three too many — before the end credits roll. RC

The high of the ‘Tiger’

LIZA VOLL PHOTOGRAPHY

Company One turns in an exceptional existential play about a ferocious feline’s ghost Rick Park roars in the title role Mason Sand does a great Uday Hussein You don’t have to be an existentialist to appreciate the pondering of one’s existence in Company One’s superb production of “Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo.” By the time the curtain falls, every living creature will have the chance to explore an even bigger question, “why aren’t I gone?” One by one, through a series of incidents that make socio-political commentary on the U.S. invasion of Iraq, each of the characters meet their untimely demise only to dis-

cover it’s not the end. The first one to go is the curmudgeonly Tiger, brilliantly

played by local stage veteran Rick Park. After impulsively biting the hand that feeds him, Park’s delightfully perplexed Tiger discovers he’s got “some serious reevaluating to do.” While snarkily haunting his killer, the rumpled old tigercum-ghost struggles with the guilt, cruelty, freedom and meaning of his own life. Director Shawn LaCount finds a nice balance between the humor and the message of the story without veering into heavy-handed metaphors that

From left, Ray Ramirez, Rick Park and Michael Knowlton get their “Zoo” on.

could easily have turned the production into a morality debate. Even at its heaviest moments, there’s an underlying playfulness that almost makes you forget the weightiness of it all. Of course it doesn’t hurt that Mason Sand portrays one of the most violent men in history, Uday Hussein, as an inept buffoon. Though Sand’s utterly

contemptible Hussein is so smarmy you might feel the need to bathe after the show, his unfortunately limited stage time is outrageously fun. Ray Ramirez delivers a stellar turn as Tom, the guard in possession of Uday’s gold pistol and toilet seat. Michael Knowlton is equally impressive as his dim-witted, trigger-happy partner.

THE WORD

Metro’s Dorothy Robinson shares her take on the world of gossip Moss: ‘Years of crying’ after Depp break up It’s been 14 years since they broke up, but Kate Moss is finally opening up about her four-year relationship with Johnny Depp, telling Vanity Fair that she felt “taken care of” by the “Pirates of the Caribbean” star. “There’s nobody that’s ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, ‘What do I do?’ he’d tell me,” Moss says, adding that losing that counsel was the hardest part of their split. “That’s what I missed,” she says. “I really lost having that gauge of somebody I could trust. [It was a] nightmare. Years and years of crying.”

Evan Rachel Wood, Jamie Bell married It looks like those wedding rings Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell were spotted wearing were for real, as the pair has in fact tied the knot, a rep for Wood tells Us Weekly. The small ceremony took place in California on Tuesday, with Wood wearing a gown by Carolina Herrera.

Affleck on balancing work and family Ben Affleck has learned the hard way that finding a balance between working and being at home means turning down some interesting gigs — like directing episodes of “Homeland,” the critically acclaimed spy drama. While giving a speech at the Artios Awards in L.A. recently, Affleck admitted wife Jennifer Garner kept him from taking that job. “I liked the show. I signed on. The guys were ready. I don’t want to blame ‘her,’ but my wife and I gave an agreement where when she works, I don’t work and when I work, she doesn’t work,” he explains. “She said, ‘I have this movie, it’s 10 weeks, it’s in Atlanta.’ I said, ‘OK, forget it. I’m sure nothing will happen with it anyway.’”

How the stars celebrated Halloween

I never thought I’d say this, but thank God for the Kardashians. With so many East Coast Halloween parties cancelled, such as Heidi Klum’s annual A-list soiree (which has been rescheduled as a “haunted Christmas bash”), it was up to those elsewhere to keep the gossip sites running with their spooky celebrations. First up are those ever-present social butterflies, the Kardashians. Kim Kardashian held a party at LIV nightclub in Miami dressed as Catwoman with date Kanye West coming in costume as Batman. They joined Kourtney Kardashian, who was dressed as Batgirl, while boyfriend Scott Disick tagged along as Robin. Meanwhile, on the West Coast, noted humanitarian Chris Brown dressed up like a member of the Taliban (complete with a turban and a fake automatic weapon) to head to Rihanna’s Halloween party held at Greystone Manor in West Hollywood. And although they donned translucent masks, Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson couldn’t disguise their identities as they headed to a Halloween party at a cemetery in Hollywood. Also living it up in L.A.: Facebook twins Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss, who joined Dominic Cooper at a party thrown by Treats! Magazine. Billy Crystal sat courtside at the Memphis Grizzlies vs. Los Angeles Clippers game but didn’t join up with Snoop Lion, who wore a spooky mask to Clipper Matt Barnes’ “Welcome Back To L.A.”

Kim Kardashian went as Catwoman at her Halloween party at LIV nightclub at Fontainebleau Miami.

Rihanna kept it simple in a black dress when she was crowned Queen of the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival at Greystone Manor Supperclub.

As always, Chris Brown kept it classy.

Nelly was also celebrating a birthday and Halloween in Las Vegas, but he showed up sans costume at The Bank Nightclub at the Bellagio for a special performance. And finally, across the pond in England, Gwen Stefani went as Sandy from “Grease” at a bash thrown by British chat show host Jonathan Ross at his home in London. Bandmate and exboyfriend Tony Kanal went with her as Danny — no word on where husband Gavin Rossdale was.

They prefer humility and honesty — perennial good moves that make their music perennially good.

No Pats, no problem Pats can kick back this weekend Surprising Dolphins, Colts lock horns Second half of Pats schedule looking like a relatively easy road

The Cold, Hard Football Facts A look at the NFL through the eyes of the stat experts at ColdHardFootballFacts.com:

GETTY IMAGES

With the Patriots off this weekend, fans in the area will still be looking to get their football fix. Here are a few matchups to watch:

New England’s offensive line dynasty New England is the closest thing to an offensive line dynasty in modern football, as measured each year by the Cold, Hard Football Facts Offensive Hog Index. The Patriots have finished in the top nine in the indicator each year since 2007. Just two of New England’s five OL starters in the 45-7 win over St. Louis last weekend started last year in the Super Bowl. Despite changing faces, the Pats are still dominant up front.

Miami Dolphins at Indianapolis Colts, 1:00 p.m. The Patriots will face both of these teams in the next four weeks so it will give fans a firsthand look at their next opponents. Both teams enter the game with 4-3 records with the Dolphins sitting in second place behind the Patriots in the AFC East. This could be a showdown of rookie quarterbacks in the Colts’ Andrew Luck and the Dolphins’ Ryan Tannehill, but Tannehill suffered a left knee injury in last week’s game and backup Matt Moore came in and led Miami to a 30-9 win over the Jets. Tannehill did practice this week, but his status remains up in the air.

Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans, 1:00 p.m. This game also provides a chance for Patriots fans to see two of their opponents during the second half of the season. Houston has proven itself as one of, if not the best team in the AFC while it is unclear whether or not Buffalo is a contender or a pretender. Houston comes in with a 6-1 record while Buffalo is 3-4 with three of their losses by 20-plus points. The AFC’s road to the Super Bowl could very well go through Houston this year.

2012 Offensive Hog Index No. 1 — NE Patriots No. 2 — Tennessee Titans No. 3 — Denver Broncos No. 4 — Houston Texans No. 5 — Buffalo Bills

Davone Bess and the Dolphins have been one of the AFC’s early surprises.

The stretch run A look at the second half of the Patriots schedule: Sun, Nov. 11 vs. Buffalo Sun, Nov. 18 vs. Indianapolis Thu, Nov. 22 at NY Jets Sun, Dec. 2 at Miami Mon, Dec. 10 vs. Houston Sun, Dec. 16 vs. San Fran Sun, Dec. 23 at Jacksonville Sun, Dec. 30 vs. Miami Sat, Jan. 5 NFL playoffs begin

Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants, 4:25 p.m.

Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons, 8:20 p.m.

Two Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks in Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger will face off at the Meadowlands Sunday afternoon in an inter-conference battle. Pittsburgh comes in at 4-3 coming off of a 27-12 win over the Redskins last week while the Giants are 6-2 and considered one of the best teams in the NFL. New York squeaked past the Cowboys, 29-24, last week after blowing a 23-0 lead.

The only undefeated team in the league will be featured in primetime Sunday night when the Falcons host the Cowboys. Dallas is coming off of a devastating 29-24 loss to the Giants, while Atlanta defeated the Eagles 30-17. Atlanta is running away with the NFC South as Tampa Bay is the second place team with just a 3-4 record. RYAN HANNABLE sports@metro.us

WEEKEND, NOVEMBER 2-4, 2012

Fantasy Football Champs A look at fantasy football through the eyes of the experts at FFChamps.com: FFChamps.com Impact player Trent Richardson, RB, Cleveland — Richardson fought through his rib injury to grind out 24 carries for 122 yards and a touchdown against a hard-nosed San Diego run defense on Sunday. He will do a great Jim Brown impression this week against a suddenly weary Baltimore defense that is being hammered for 142 rushing yards per game. The Browns’ rookie workhorse reached paydirt against the rival Ravens back in Week 4 and the rematch will be played in Cleveland’s Dawg Pound.

3 In the news Help on the way The Patriots identified their main problem on the 2012 season and are attempting to correct it. Bucking the NFL trend, the Pats made a deal at the league’s trade deadline Thursday, acquiring cornerback Aqib Talib and a seventh round pick from Tampa Bay for a 2013 fourth round pick, according to ESPN. Talib has one game remaining on a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s performance-enhancing substance policy. Talib, who has 18 career interceptions, has had multiple offthe-field issues since being drafted 20th overall by Tampa in 2008.
