Placing bets. Voters in Boston and Revere will soon have to vote on the agreement. Boston and Suffolk Downs have put their cards on the table, and soon it will be the voters’ turn to bet on a proposed casino that could net Boston tens of millions of dollars in annual payments. Officials from the city and the racetrack announced yesterday that the sides reached a deal on a host community agreement regarding the proposed casino. Last year, officials from Caesars Entertainment and Suffolk Downs unveiled plans for a $1 billion casino and hotel at the track that is located on the East Bos-
ton and Revere border. Among the deals worked out in the 138-page agreement is a section that outlines payments to the city. The city said Boston is projected to receive $52 million annually, after stabilization and based on anticipated gross gaming revenue. Regardless of revenue, the city will never receive less than $32 million annually. A $33.4 million up-front payment will be made to the city specifically for improvements to East Boston. “This agreement will transform my neighborhood,” said City Councilor Sal LaMattina. ”It will save jobs … it will provide jobs — hundreds of jobs — to people that live in my neighborhood. ... This is a big day for my neighborhood.” The agreement also states that the casino should have

“The agreement ... has more revenue, more guaranteed jobs and more protections than any other agreement in the region and the commonwealth.” Menino 4,000 permanent jobs at its completion and for the remainder of the license term. Of those hired for the jobs, 50 percent should be from Boston, according to the agreement. While Boston reached an agreement with Suffolk Downs, Revere must also come to a deal. Joe O’Donnell, principal owner of Suffolk Downs, said that he expects a deal with Revere to be finalized this week. While officials have reached an agreement, it must still be approved by voters.
Mayor Thomas Menino said he supports an East Boston-only vote. Even if residents approve the agreement, Suffolk Downs and Caesars still have to compete for the casino license in the Greater Boston area. Las Vegas mogul Steve Wynn has already reached an agreement with Everett, and there is also a deal being worked out between Milford and Foxwoods.

A group of Boston activists believe technology is key to helping Pakistan tackle its social and humanitarian problems. Leading up the effort are Asad Badruddin and Zheela Qaiser, the creators of a hackathon-style event called “Pakathon,” which will be held at Hack/Reduce in Cambridge Sept. 13-15. “Just getting people together to work on something and spark that kind of creative energy and cross-collaborate, that in and of itself is the beginning of something positive,” said Qaiser.

The group with the best idea will get $5,000 to put the project into play, as well as access to mentors, partnerships and non-governmental organizations. Badruddin, 23, and Qaiser, 24, both grew up in Karachi, and came to Boston to attend college. Having witnessed firsthand the problems plaguing their home nation, the pair decided that the time for action was now.

Organizers said they hope to get more participants on board. “Hopefully, one or two great ideas will come out of the weekend,” said Qaiser. “But I think this will be a spark that catalyzes future events.”

Action. A spokesman reiterated that Obama had not made a decision on how the U.S. will respond. The White House ruled out any military effort to oust Syrian President Bashar al-Assad from power yesterday as President Barack Obama ponders options in response to last week’s chemical weapons attack in Syria. “The options that we are considering are not about regime change,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney. “They are about responding to a clear violation of an international standard that prohibits the use of chemical weapons.” Obama is considering cruise missile strikes against Syrian targets in response to the Aug.
21 chemical weapons attack that U.S. officials are increasingly confident was launched by the Syrian government. Carney said the United States expects to release in coming days a public version of a formal report by the U.S. intelligence community on the use of chemical weapons. The report is expected to conclude the Syrian government was responsible for the attack. Any attempt at “regime change” by the United States would draw the United States deeply into a conflict that Obama has been determined to avoid. The president has already ruled out putting U.S. troops on the ground in Syria. Carney said the United States has a variety of options from which to use, not just military options. Most of the talk about Syria in recent days, however, has been about a limited cruise missile attack. REUTERS

Obama, Canada PM agree Syria merits ﬁrm response U.S. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper yesterday agreed that the use of chemical weapons in Syria merited a firm, effective and timely response
“Both leaders agreed that signiﬁcant use of chemical weapons merits a ﬁrm response from the international community in an eﬀective and timely manner.” Andrew MacDougall Harper spokesman said in a statement
from the international community, a spokesman for Harper said. The two leaders talked amid mounting signs that Washington and its allies are edging toward a limited use of force against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s loyalists in the wake of a poison gas attack last week that killed hundreds of civilians.

Modest start for Switzerland’s first drive-in ‘sex boxes’ Greeted by a press pack rather than prostitutes, the first customer to roll up to Switzerland’s sex drive-in on opening night took one lap of the facility before making a hasty exit. The second car, a family vehicle driven by a man in sunglasses under cloudy evening skies, broke down and needed jump-starting in front of a host of photographers sniggering into their cameras. Zurich authorities had said they expected a modest start to the country’s first socalled “sex boxes,” a row of drive-in wooden garages on a looping track where clients in cars can visit prostitutes, shielded from prying eyes and security cameras. The number of prostitutes in the Alpine nation has risen sharply over the last decade, due to the decriminalization of procuring and passive solicitation of

The sex boxes, which echo similar drive-in systems in the Netherlands and Germany, are being touted as a way to get large numbers of prostitutes and their clients off Switzerland’s otherwise pristine streets.

Other speakers include former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. The ceremony will follow an interfaith service at Shiloh Baptist Church in

Washington, organizers said. The speech by Obama will come as almost half of Americans say much more needs to be done before the color-blind society that King envisioned is realized. Obama said last week that the legacy of discrimination had left a persistent economic gap between blacks and whites, but that the civil rights movement’s impulse for equality had spread to Hispanics, immigrants, gays and others. The ceremony will include bell-ringing at 3 p.m., 50 years to the minute after King ended his call for racial and economic justice with the words “let freedom ring.” REUTERS Ring bells
About 50 communities or organizations around the United States have said they will ring bells.

Yesterday, I wrote about how personally butthurt I felt about the way Justin “Too Good For the Little People Now That I Roll with Jay-Z” Timberlake gave his exbandmates the shaft at their big VMA “reunion.” I wasn’t the only one with mixed feelings. According to US Magazine, Chris Kirpatrick and co. didn’t exactly have glowing things to report. “All of us getting back together, we remembered what we love about each other and what we hate about each other,” Kirkpatrick said, methodically sticking pins into a voodoo doll he’d crafted
JOE FRANCIS FILMMAGIC
Joe Francis jailed Here is some news that should come as a surprise to approximately nobody. Joe Francis, best known as the date-rapey titan behind the date-rapey “Girls Gone Wild” franchise, has been sentenced to jail for assaulting a woman. Because, OF COURSE HE HAS. Francis — who appeared on the most recent season of “Couples Therapy” (This dude had trouble with his romantic relationship? Weird.) — has been sentenced to at least 270 days in jail for holding three women in his apartment against their will and choking one of them. My only question here is, how did it take so long for this man to be convicted of something? The man has been robbing girls of their dignity and future ability to get hired at legitimate places of business for more than a decade now. But somehow he got signatures on release forms from all those girls with blank, rolled-back-intheir-sockets eyes who were willing to bare their bouncing breasts while hammered out of their minds.
from tufts of impossibly silky blonde hair he’d collected from Timberlake’s dressing room post-show. “It was just a bit of fun.” OK, OK, obviously I’m kidding about that whole hair doll thing. There’s no way they’d let Kirkpatrick within 20 feet of Timberlake’s dressing room! Lance Bass didn’t have much to say on the subject, either, other than that he felt really “nauseous” the whole time. Whether this was due to stage fright (it’s been a while!) or the noxious odor of resentment and defeat (kind of like rotten eggs and cheap cologne), is unclear.

Jon and Kate plus a lawsuit
Remember Kate Gosselin? The woman who was famous for a couple of minutes for having a thousand kids? No, not the one with the tentacles, the one with the mullet. Yeah, that one! Gosselin — previously of “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” fame, currently just another sad, harried mom with bad hair — is making headlines again, likely to her immense relief. Because, where does one go after flash-
in-the-pan reality TV fame? (The answer is Kmart.) Kate is suing ex-husband/ bonafide creep Jon Gosselin for allegedly hacking into her email to access topsecret information for an eBook that nobody has heard of and nobody will read (because Jon Gosselin wrote it, and because it’s an eBook) called “Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World.” The only one fooled was you, Jon.

Pippi porn star Here is a very tragic item about the adorable ginger kid best known (only known) for her portrayal of lovable mischief-maker Pippi Longstocking. She’s in porn now. What is it about childhood stardom that breeds a particular strain of adult desperation and low selfesteem? At best, these kids end up on “Celebrity Rehab” or in weird YouTube music videos dressed like Jacko (I’m looking at you, Corey Feldman). At worst, they end up in porn. No, at worst they end up dead — second worse, porn. Though, let’s be honest, most people who get ejaculated upon for a living are pretty much dead on the inside. TMZ — who somehow get
their sticky fingers on every celeb sex tape first — report that they have seen the porn video, starring the now 39-year-old Pippi Longstocking (aka Tami Erin). Also according to TMZ — who always seem to revel just a bit too hard in the sex shaming of once-adorable child stars — the tape is pretty “hard core” (aren’t they always?). The name of this alleged hard core porno has yet to be released, but I’ve got some ideas. Nippy Longcocking? The Sadventures of Pippy Longboobs? Anyone?

â€˜Wickedâ€™ still casts a delightful spell Review. Despite some missteps on opening night, the production soars. Itâ€™s been three years since â€œWickedâ€? last bewitched the Opera House, but the behemoth blockbuster musical is still as dazzling as ever. Flying monkeys, smoke and mirrors, witches, munchkins and Broadway-style glitz make the magic in this tale of life in pre-Dorothy Oz come alive. A good part of the magic in this staging of the untold story of Glinda and Elphaba can be attributed to the ornate set, which boasts an enormous Time Dragon Clock, high atop the stage, that breathes fire when one of the witches is up to no good. Unfortunately â€” and surprisingly â€” there were a couple of minor problems on opening night that weâ€™re confident have been remedied now that the production is a good few weeks

in. The sound lacked the usual rich quality one expects of a production of this scale, rendering the incredible Stephen Schwartz score a bit flat in a few places. The other issue was that one of the showâ€™s two leads, Elphaba, was played by standby Laurel Harris. Harris was so rusty in Act I that while Elphaba and her broom soared sky-high during â€œDefying Gravity,â€? her vocals did not. Luckily, Harris fared much better in Act
II and the audience roared their approval at curtain call. Still, she failed to deliver one of the productionâ€™s show-stopper moments, which is a shame, as itâ€™s always one of the highest notes of a production that is full of them. Jenn Gambatese was able to pick up some of the slack with her perky portrayal of the good witch Glinda, nailing every comedic moment and delivering a delightful rendition of audience favorite, â€œPopular.â€?
Likewise, Kim Zimmer â€” a long-time leading lady on the soap â€œGuiding Lightâ€? â€” is a joy to behold as the misspeaking Madame Morrible. Curt Hansen similarly enchants as Fiyero, the object of all of the witchesâ€™ attentions. Despite any minor problems (all of which, weâ€™re sure, can be explained by early production growing pains) it cannot be denied that â€œWickedâ€? still possesses the power to cast a firm spell.
