The audit said some of the sex offender registry information was out of date, but said similar routine checks would ensure children’s safety.

DA: Newbury St. stylist was left stabbed under highway Fatal stabbing. The sister of a South End man found under a highway ramp said she doubts that his murder will ever make sense. As a prosecutor told a judge how an Everett man allegedly stabbed a Newbury Street salon stylist eight times and then left him under an interstate ramp, the accused nodded his head up and down before burying his head in his hands. Christopher Powell, 39, of Everett, was ordered held without bail during his arraignment for murder. Powell was arrested Tuesday, about a month after a passerby discovered the body of 44-year-old Corey Thompson on a gravelly plot of land under an Interstate 93 ramp

near Albany Street. Assistant District Attorney Edmond Zabin said the two men got into a fight during which Thompson punched and assaulted Powell. The fight was captured on video surveillance. As Zabin told the judge that at some point Powell pulled a knife and stabbed Thompson eight times in the torso, Powell nodded his head and mouthed “I love you” to his mother and

girlfriend who attended the hearing. According to court documents, video surveillance from a nearby apartment building showed Thompson in a verbal and physical fight with Powell. Troopers investigating the incident interviewed three witnesses who said they saw the two running near Harrison Avenue and William Mullins Way at about 5 a.m. Feb. 25. The witnesses said they saw Thomp-

Family reaction

Thompson’s sister and niece attended the court hearing. When asked before the hearing what it would be like to see the man who allegedly killed her brother, Patricia Russell hesitated, then answered. •

“What I want to do [to him] I don’t think they’ll let me,” she

said, adding that it had been a while since she talked to her brother. “I’m hoping it’ll make sense, but I don’t know if it ever will.” •

Both his sister and niece described Thompson as a well-liked person who had many friends.

son punch Powell and Powell shout, “Don’t hit me. I’ll give you the money.” Powell’s blood was found on a fence near the area where Thompson’s body was found and on a door handle of Thompson’s car. Lawyers would not comment on how the two men knew each other. When troopers arrested Powell, he told them he was taking Oxycodone. Powell’s attorney suggested that his client acted in self-defense. “There appears to be an issue of self-defense, even from what the prosecutor mentioned,” said Attorney Michael Bourbeau. Thompson, who lived in the South End, worked at a posh and popular Newbury Street salon, according to his obituary.

CIA. Petraeus says he’s sorry for affair, moves to mend image Former CIA Director David Petraeus apologized yesterday for the extramarital affair that forced his November resignation and acknowledged the toll it took on his family, career and reputation. His appearance at an event honoring University of Southern California veterans and Reserve Officers’ Training Corps students was his first public speech since the storied Army general’s career was cut short by the scandal.

Petraeus noted that “life doesn’t stop with such a mistake. It can and must go on.” “I know that I can never fully assuage the pain that I inflicted on those closest to me and on a number of others,” Petraeus said. “I can, however, try to move forward in a manner that is consistent with the values to which I subscribed before slipping my moorings and, as best as possible, to make amends to those I have hurt and let down.” REUTERS


Supreme Court still debates marriage law DOMA. Highest court continues discussing striking down law denying federal benefits to same-sex couples.

Gun violence

Sheriff releases Gabby Giffords shooting papers The sheriff’s office that responded to the 2011 mass shooting attack in Tucson, Ariz., that wounded former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, released more than 2,700 pages of documents on yesterday related to its investigation, an official said. The release of the records comes just over four months after Jared Lee Loughner, 24, a college dropout with a history of psychiatric problems, was sentenced to

life in prison for committing the rampage that killed six people and wounded 13 others, including Giffords. The trove of documents released by the Pima County Sheriff’s Department includes transcripts of witness accounts, calls to emergency responders and case reports from the dozens of detectives and officers who responded to the shooting, said Deputy Thomas Peine, a spokesman for the agency. No photos are included in the release because the department is still reviewing them, Peine added. REUTERS

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, a potential swing vote, warned of the “risks” that the Defense of Marriage Act infringes upon the traditional role of the states in defining marriage. The 1996 U.S. law denies married same-sex couples access to federal benefits by defining marriage as between a man and a woman. Kennedy referred to DOMA as “inconsistent” because it purports to give authority to the states to define marriage while limiting recognition of those determinations. On the liberal side of the bench, Justice Sonia Sotomayor and Justice Elena Kagan echoed some of Kennedy’s concerns about the states’ rights issue. “What gives the federal government the right to be concerned at all about the definition of marriage?” Sotomayor said. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg also raised

concerns about the law, stressing how important federal recognition is to any person who is legally married. Comparing marriage status with types of milk, Ginsburg said that a gay marriage endorsed by a state, but not recognized by the federal government, could be viewed as the equivalent of “skim milk.” The law is the focus of a second day of oral arguments before the high court. It is possible the court would not reach the wider issue in the DOMA case because of preliminary legal matters relating to whether the court can hear it. On that issue, conservative justices criticized the decision by President Obama to abandon the defense of DOMA and question his willingness to defend other laws passed by Congress and challenged in court. “It’s very troubling,” Kennedy said.

Web slowed by biggest cyber attack in history Internet hacking. The war between Spamhaus and Cyberbunker is derailing the ’net. The biggest cyber attack in history is slowing Internet speeds around the world as hackers take on spam-fighting group Spamhaus. Netflix is among the sites severely affected. Spamhaus claims to have been under attack for a week, following a decision to flag the Cyberbunker site as hosting spam. Spamhaus CEO Steve Linford said the Distributed Denial of Service attacks are unprecedented. “Attacks are peaking at 300 gigabytes per second. … Attacks against major banks, we’re talking about 50,” he said, adding this was enough to disable government networks.

Meet Bieber’s spit

Justin Bieber is facing battery accusations from a neighbor who claims he made threats during an argument near his Los Angeles home. It appears Bieber decided to take his new Ferrari for a spin around his gated community at speeds of up to 100 mph. His neighbor, who TMZ says is a 47-yearold and father of three, began to yell at Bieber for driving so fast. Bieber reportedly responded by spitting in his face and stating: “I’m gonna f--king kill you.” If that guy has a 16-year-old daughter, she is going to be sooooo mortified.

celebration of Princess Aurora (Misa Kuranaga). She gives the child a spindle as a gift, announcing that she will prick her finger on it

and die. But not so fast — the good Lilac Fairy’s (Lia Cirio) gift to the princess is that she not die, but fall into a deep sleep until she is awakened by a Prince’s (Jeffrey Cirio) kiss. This show has a lot of personality. The Lilac Fairy is a bold, fearless leader; the Songbird Fairy (Sylvia Deaton) shows a lighter, funny side, while the Golden Vine Fairy (Dalay Parrondo) means business. Carabosse is wickedly wicked — a character you love to hate. Kuranaga did her homework

and captures all things pure and innocent about Aurora. For a grandiose, romantic story ballet, the staging and music is delicate and inviting, as opposed to the Wang Theatre performances from several years back. An entire cast is bouncing and floating onstage, but all you can feel is the tremendous energy of the dancers and the silence around them. It’s as if Boston Ballet is putting on a private showing for your eyes only. And that is the way a ballet should be experienced.

No sleeping

The climax of the story (the kiss) is at the end of Act II. Act III moves quickly but is more of a celebratory section with other fairy tale characters and a grand pas de deux.

‘Olympus’ writers: You can’t handle the truth Quoted

“Obviously [White House officials] don’t tell you anything, but you use your imagination on what might be there. Then when we were in pre-production, we met with Secret Service people.

Film. The screenwriters of “Olympus Has Fallen” talk about getting too close to the truth and discovering strange but true factoids about the White House. “We don’t think anything like this could ever happen,” Creighton Rothenberger says with a smile. In his film, “Olympus Has Fallen,” which he co-wrote with his wife Katrin Benedikt, terrorists break into the White House, wipe out the

Secret Service team and kidnap the president. But is this really so implausible? In the film, Gerard Butler stars as the lone surviving Secret Service agent after the massacre and the only one who can save the day. Rothenberger and Benedikt acknowledge the obvious “‘Die Hard’ in the White House” line, and insist they were trying to one-up that film’s corporate skyscraper setting. “The kernel of the idea was what would be the most impossible building to take over in the world? And we said the White House. But how would you take it over?” The terrorists are North Korean rogue agents. The main villain, played by Rick Yune,

seeks revenge against a nation that has helped keep his country apart. “We wanted a villain whose mind-set was that he was in the right,” Rothenberger explains. “He thought he had a reason to lash out against the United States. He thinks he is the hero. But you have to stop him because, you know, we disagree.” Rothenberger says that director Antoine Fuqua (“Training Day”) aimed to keep it “real” and “gritty.” But not too real. “When you see an action movie, obviously you suspend belief a little bit,” says Benedikt. “But you don’t want to be suspending belief every other minute. That takes you out of the movie. But I think you can

get away with one or two [logic lapses].” Actually, the two had to avoid certain things they discovered through research because they might sound too outlandish. “We learned that when a motorcade [from another country] comes into the White House driveway, they can’t question those guys,” explains Rothenberger. “They can’t go into their vehicles. They could have guns inside, yet because of diplomatic protocol you can’t check them out. We didn’t put that in there because no one’s going to buy that.”

RE: “Take a moment of silence for chivalry” (Metro, March 27) How about the females rushing to the subway car before the passengers get out from the car? How about the females who rush to the vacant seat close to a

man and take it as entitled without even offering a smile or a thank you to the man? Women have to understand that if a man offers a seat to them, it is not because they are entitled it, but because of plain courtesy. So please start saying thank you. GEORGE THOMAS, VIA E-MAIL

Gail Scott doesn’t want the “equal rights crap” because she doesn’t believe in equal rights, but female superiority. Subway seats SHOULD be given up, by BOTH men and women, for the elderly, pregnant women, children and

those with disabilities that require a seat for courtesy and decency, not for gender alone. We have heard women roar that they are equal to men, and I fully agree. So now women, as equals, can vote, run a Fortune 500 company, become president and enjoy the equality of fighting for a seat on the subway.

I am often asked, “Is there such a thing as a happy marriage these days?” Patients come in to see me and talk about all the failed relationships around them. They’re frustrated and fearful of marriage as a result. People’s attitudes seem to be, “Every marriage fails eventually, so what’s the point?” This has a profound impact on their ability to even have a healthy relationship. Their questions are rooted in fear of the unknown. People don’t know exactly how marriage will turn out when they enter it, so they get anxious. There are things you can do to ensure a healthy relationship, even through differences and difficulties. These are my tried-and-tested tips to become fearlessly married: Define a healthy marriage. If you wanted to open a coffee shop, would you model it after the dingy one on the corner or the thriving Star-

bucks? Rather than focusing on botched relationships, look at what works. Enter the marriage 100 percent committed, without the divorce option. In relationships that stand the test of time, couples are entirely focused on keeping it and doing what’s necessary to maintain it. Disagreements are normal


and don’t mean the end of a relationship. Look at the big picture and ask yourself: Is it worth it to win the battle but lose the war? Accept certain things about your partner. Sure, it may annoy you that he leaves the toilet seat up, but in the end, does it really matter? Focus on what binds you, not on what separates you.

You originally got together because of commonalities, not differences. Keep that focus while maintaining a sense of autonomy. The best relationships are those where both people do their thing and then come together and enjoy. Take time out when there are arguments or fights. Issues are rarely resolved in the heat of battle, so walk away and agree to come together when things calm down. Examine your intent. Is it to hurt the other person or work toward a compromise? Avoid absolute words such as “always” or “never,” as they seldom lead to a constructive conversation. Plan a date night, e.g. movies, dinner. Have it in place early in the week so you can look forward to it. Jonathan Alpert is a licensed psychotherapist. His book “Be Fearless: Change Your life in 28 Days” is available now.

SURE, PATRON’S A WATERING HOLE — BUT ONE WITH SOME SOPHISTICATED TEQUILA We’ve been hearing about the development of Patron’s Mexican Kitchen and Watering Hole for a few months now, as owner Marc Kadish has gradually transformed the former Big City pool hall into a new Mexican and tequila bar concept. If you expected a classier update on the frat-y Allston bar in line with many of the other recent, flashy tequila-centric bar openings, you’d be half right. The back room has been remodeled into a much more attractive dining room: leather banquettes and two fire places provide a relaxed feel, with ornate mirrors, old clocks and art adorning the walls. A few pool tables remain, however, taking up the right side of the secondstory space. The bar pushing outward from the center toward that side remains largely the same, which is to say: Allston-y. Despite the conceptual focus on tequilas now, there is still a Jagermeister shot machine behind the bar, and an encouragement to ask about tequila Jell-O shots on the menu under the list of mezcals. The existence of that list is encouraging all the same, ranging from approachable and popular mezcals, like the Monte Alban silver — lightly smoky, slightly astringent,


Give agave a chance “The spotlight is on boutique mescals and creative agave cocktails,� owner Marc Kadish said in a statement on the opening. “I think our $4 margaritas will be a real crowd-pleaser, but our beerdrinking customers will cer-

Jessica de la Rosa and Charlie Sahlman enjoy dinner and tequila-based drinks at Patron’s in Allston. / ERIN BALDASSARI

Best of all, most are under $10, save the rarer Del Maguey Pechugay, with its intense smoke and salinity. The tequila list is much longer, with a similar spectrum. (The bar’s name, incidentally, doesn’t refer to the tequila brand, but rather the Spanish word for boss, although that seems like a confusing choice given the word association.) Like the Sunset Grill downstairs, in the same family of bars, the tap selection here is vast, with some 80 beers to choose from.

Funny money

MLB values surge Major League Baseball teams are making money hand over fist, but not because of rising attendance or any other typical reasons. According to Forbes, money that all teams made from the 2006 sale of the Montreal Expos was invested in hedge funds and is now worth more than $1 billion.

Can the Red Sox exceed their relatively low expectations? Are the Yankees finally dead? Will the revamped Blue Jays be able to make the postseason for the first time since the early 1990s? Was the Orioles’ 2012 season just a fluke?

METRO’S AL EAST PREDICTIONS Who will take the AL East? For the first time in a long time the division is anyone’s for the taking, and the usual favorites, the Red Sox and Yankees, are being picked to finish at the bottom by many experts. Here are Metro Boston’s AL East predictions for the 2013 season: Tampa Bay Rays: 90-72, The Rays didn’t make any big splashes this offseason, but it’s not like they needed to. They have arguably the best pitching staff in the entire American League in David Price, Jeremy Hellickson, and Matt Moore as well as Fernando Rodney in their bullpen. In what could be the most competitive AL East in recent memory, solid pitching should guide the Rays to the top of the standings. Boston Red Sox: 87-75 Many people have already written off the Red Sox, a team coming off of a 69-93 sea-

son and a last place finish in the division. But 2013 is a new year. The team still has a great deal of talent on the roster in Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia and Will Middlebrooks. The Red Sox also signed Mike Napoli, Jonny Gomes and Shane Victorino this offseason, who bring plenty of leadership to what was thought to be a temperamental clubhouse. As is the key with most teams, the success of the Sox will depend on their starting pitching. The staff was dreadful in 2012, finishing second to last in the AL in both wins and ERA, but certainly has the talent to lead the team to a playoff spot. Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz have proven in the past what they are capable of. New York Yankees: 82-80 These Yankees are already behind the eight ball with a number of injuries before the season has even begun. Derek

Mark Buehrle and Jose Reyes were added from a trade with Miami and the team also signed starter R.A. Dickey. On paper the Blue Jays may be the best team in the division, and will surely improve on their 73-89 season last year, but not by much. It’s rare that a baseball team turns things around completely in just one year.

Jose Reyes and the Blue Jays are a hot pick in the AL East.

Jeter is hobbled and won’t play Opening Day. A strained right wrist will keep first baseman Mark Teixeira out for at least the month of April -— same goes for outfielder Curtis Granderson who has a fractured right forearm. Even worse is Alex Rodriguez who will be out until July at the earliest as he comes off of hip surgery. The Yankees starting rotation isn’t the same dominant group as in the


past. CC Sabathia is coming off of a season where he made just 28 starts, his fewest since 2006. Hiroki Kuroda had a solid 2012, but he is 38 years old — and many questions surround the rest of the staff in Andy Pettitte, Phil Hughes and Michael Pineda. Toronto Blue Jays: 81-81 No team in the division made as many moves this offseason as the Blue Jays. Josh Johnson,

Baltimore Orioles: 78-84 Coming off one of the biggest turnarounds in recent memory and making the playoffs for the first time since 1997 last season, it could just be a “one-year wonder” scenario for the Orioles. Baltimore was an astounding 29-9 in one-run games and won 16 straight extra innings games, but that is highly unlikely for a team to duplicate in back-to-back seasons.



Farrell with chance to correct many wrongs of 2012 season Red Sox. New Sox manager is a link to success of Francona era, but also brings a fresh approach.

New Red Sox manager John Farrell has kept things relatively quiet this spring. / GETTY IMAGES

When a team goes 69-93 in a given season there are many factors that go into the poor record. This was the case for the 2012 Red Sox and one of those factors was manager Bobby Valentine. Valentine never seemed to have the backing of his team from day one and was never able to get into a comfort zone at any point during the season. Valentine was fired a day after the season came to an end, and then about a month later, Blue Jays manager John Farrell returned to Boston, where he was the pitching coach for four seasons, to become the 45th manager in

Red Sox history. The Red Sox made a number of acquisitions this offseason but none may be bigger than the addition of Farrell, who will be a familiar face; someone the players respect, trust and are able to openly communicate with. “The most important thing is that we earn the trust of one another inside the clubhouse first,” Farrell said a few weeks back. “And going from there is the style of play that people can identify with this group as a team, and [be] confident that the makeup of the group initially will put ourselves in a

position to do that.” One of the biggest issues in 2012 was the pitching staff, and who better than Farrell to come in and turn things around? Farrell was the one who groomed Jon Lester and Clay Buchholz into All-Star-level pitchers in his time with the team in the late 2000s, so obviously he has an inside track on getting them back on track. Positional players such as Dustin Pedroia and Ortiz saw what Farrell brings to the table, and are familiar to his style. It all starts with the leaders of the team, Pedroia and Ortiz, and if they are on board and trust their man-

ager, the message of “team” should trickle on down. While a manager cannot be the sole reason for a team only winning 69 games, there were documented incidents last season under Valentine in which communication channels were cut off. As the Red Sox look to turn the page and begin a new chapter with a new attitude and culture, bringing in a manger the team is familiar with and respects could prove to be the best move of the offseason.

2013 season. Optimists have found their non-pitching staff golden boy, however. His name is Jackie Bradley Jr. and he will be part of Boston’s 2013 season one way or another. Whether or not the outfielder begins the season on the 25-man roster remains to be seen. “Still working through it and we’d probably like to have some sense who our 25 guys are going to be by

the end of the day [today] so we just want to be fair to all going north that they’ve got a couple days to prepare themselves,� Red Sox manager John Farrell told WEEI. com. “We’ll see how that goes.� Bradley has a glistening .523 on-base percentage this spring and has more than held his own in the field. The only reason the Red Sox would not place Bradley Jr. on the Opening Day roster is to ensure that he won’t be able to reach free agency until 2019 as opposed to 2018. Outfielder Mike Carp was on the 40-man roster as of yesterday and a decision on Ryan Sweeney will likely be made today.
