Donors beware: Firefighter unions warn of scammers Fallen heroes. False fundraising scams have been abusing good citizens’ charity after the recent death of two local firemen. In the rush to help the families of the two fallen Boston firefighters, multiple charities have sprouted online. But fire officials want to make clear that not all of those efforts were created with kindness in mind. In recent days, the Professional Firefighters Association

of Massachusetts and Local 718 have shared pictures on social media of charity scams. “There are some people selling T-shirts and giving to the fund, but when others sell T-shirts and don’t give [money] to the fund, that’s pretty bad. It’s low. If someone is trying to make money off my two brother firefighters … I’m pretty mad at it,” said Rich Paris, president of Local 718, the Boston firefighters union. Lt. Edward Walsh and Firefighter Michael Kennedy were killed last Wednesday after becoming trapped in a Beacon Street home that caught fire. The investigation into the

Quoted

“When someone tries to make money off their bodies, their names, their backs, there’s no place in my life for those people.” Rich Paris, president of Local 718

9-alarm blaze is ongoing. The funerals for the firemen are set for later this week. While the attorney general’s office has received no complaints about a particular firefighter fundraising scam,

the unions have posted images of donation pages that they said are scams and contain improperly used union logos on shirts. The Boston Fire Department also urged people to donate only to credible charities. “It is unfortunate that people would use this tragedy for profit. Please do not support any unofficial fundraising efforts,” the department said on its Facebook page. An official fund has been set up through the Boston Firefighters Credit Union. Donations to the Lieutenant Walsh - Firefighter Kennedy Memorial Fund can be made at www.bosfirecu.com.

The attorney general’s office has tips for people to give wisely. The office suggests that people donating online make sure that websites belong to legitimate, established and registered charities and that the website and charity match. Also, people should avoid donating through telemarketers. “I’m proud of my firefighters and Local 718, and I don’t want anybody making money off of the back of my brother and sister firefighters,” Paris said.

Cambridge likely to get more year-round Hubway Optimistic. Cambridge officials said its winter Hubway pilot was well received. Winter blues didn’t keep Cambridge’s bike enthusiasts off the roads. Cyclists made about 32,000 Hubway trips between December and mid-March. Although no formal decision has been made, the healthy bike share ridership may mean Cambridge cyclists can expect year-round operations to continue. “We received a considerable amount of positive feedback from Hubway users about keeping the system open yearround, and the team did a great job of managing operations — including through the various storm events,” said Cara Seiderman, transportation program manager at Cambridge’s Community Development Department.

Cambridge has embraced year-round bike sharing. / NICOLAUS CZARNECKI, METRO Lots of trips Roughly 32,000 Hubway trips were made between December and mid-March. •

Students who left class to call on Gov. Deval Patrick to block new fossil fuel infrastructure said they had secured a meeting with the governor.

The Plymouth district attorney’s office said in a statement that “there has been growing family tension between [Benzino] and Gai Scott.” •

Benzino said he paid his respects to his mother in private at a Quincy funeral home but wanted to skip the procession and burial because of family tensions over money.

The Boston native was released Monday from South Shore Hospital in Weymouth. In a bedside interview, he told TheNEHipHop.com “I’m more embarrassed than anything else to be honest with you, because of me being a public figure then having people to see that me and my family is going through that. “It’s unfortunate,” he added. “Money brings the worst out of people.” MORGAN ROUSSEAU

Benzino. Nephew claims self-defense in shooting The nephew of Boston hip-hop and reality television star “Benzino” claims he shot his famous uncle during a family funeral procession in order to protect himself. Gai Scott, 36, of Randolph, pleaded not guilty Monday in Plymouth District Court to armed assault with intent to murder for allegedly shooting his uncle, whose real name is Raymond Scott, on Route 3 in Duxbury. “When the dust settles with respect to this case, it’s going to be abundantly clear that Mr. Scott, a licensed gun owner, was acting in self-defense and in defense of his family,” Scott’s attorney said. Scott was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing Wednesday. Benzino, 48, appears in the VH1 series “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta.” The shooting allegedly happened when Benzino came upon the funeral procession, which was for his mother, Mary Scott of Dorchester.

Bachelor gets bonked

Juan Pablo Galavis won’t tell the world if he loves Nikki Ferrell or not, but Atlantic City has no problem telling him they definitely don’t love him. / = GETTY IMAGES

Atlantic City didn’t have the kindest of receptions for “Bachelor� star Juan Pablo Galavis and his girlfriend, Nikki Ferrell, who came to the resort town for a special appearance at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort Atlantic City on Saturday night. Galavis and Ferrell appeared on the red carpet around midnight — and the locals were angry. Galavis was originally to sit at a VIP table next to the stage until someone (it is not known who this local hero was) threw

an aluminum beer bottle at him. After that, the organizers moved him to a cabana area for his own safety. According to reports (read: the publicist who sent me this), Ferrell joined Galavis in the VIP cabana area where they “kissed� and “held hands� until around 3 a.m., hopefully fulfilling all contractual engagements. Read: The two didn’t stick around for very long. Once they collected their paycheck, they flew to Miami the next day.

Schumer glares at guest Michael Ian Black, an “interracial wedding photographer.� / MATTHEW PEYTON

Real talk. Comedian Amy Schumer is back with jokes with substance Amy Schumer isn’t just in it for the laughs anymore. As the second season of “Inside Amy Schumer� begins (Tuesday at 10:30 p.m. on Comedy Central), so do sketches, stand-up and interview segments that ask more of their audience than to sit back and giggle. “I guess because my profile as a comedian has gone up and people are watching the show, I feel a little bit more responsibility to be actually saying something,� Schumer says of the new season, in a voice much more vulnerable than the brassy bellow she uses onstage. “Something� can mean anything from sketches poking fun at misogyny in comedy to stand-up about being insecure. In one sketch, a focus group of men respond to questions about a show by an unnamed woman. As the focus group

My sister and I like to drink some wine and watch that show.�

leader asks increasingly leading questions — “but how did you like how she looked?� — the men fall into buffoonery. But for those who are just fine with comedy and television the way they are, season two of “Inside Amy Schumer�

revels in the same silliness that made season one such a standout. “I watched a lot of ‘The Twilight Zone’ growing up and I feel like a lot of the scenes enter ‘The Twilight Zone.’ My mind goes to the absurd,� Schumer says. Don’t be surprised when comedian Michael Ian Black shows up to sell his services as an “interracial wedding photographer� or a fake commercial peddles “finger blasters� snacks. Along for the ride is a cadre of guest stars that Schumer says she feels lucky to have booked based on the first season’s popularity. Actors and comedians like Zach Braff, Mike Birbiglia and Paul Giamatti make appearances. Absurdity eclipses any message when Schumer and Giamatti make out, and that’s just fine. JULIA FURLAN

Postcard-perfect Oia When people say “Oh, I would love to visit Greece,� the town of Oia, on the island of Santorini, is usually the image in their mind. The traditional whitewashed structures — with churches capped in blue domes — are poised on the edge of a slope that leads to a perfectly azure ocean. The view is tough competition for even the most delicious Mediterranean meal.

When in Greece ... While you’re already hopping the flight to the Mediterranean, there’s no reason not to extend your sea voyage to get more time on land. And if you’re willing to forgo room service — and overpriced fare — taking a shot at living like a local has a romance about it that’s hard to deny.

GREECE’S PIECES

By sea. A cruise of mythic proportions doesn’t need a gigantic ship. It’s impossible not to become an Odysseus wannabe among the bleached-white houses and blue-domed churches dotting Greece’s Mediterranean landscapes. In fact, it’s easy to take on a touch of Homer while traveling his terrain — there are mythically gorgeous vistas and unforgettable meals. But ultimately, it’s Homer’s own currency — stories — that make each moment of a trip like this come to life. This is a place where the rich history means everywhere you go, there’s a story in it — and knowledgeable locals will help you understand if you’re interested in knowing more. With so much to see, opting to visit Greece and Turkey by sea is a convenient way to take in the many, many sights and sounds (not to mention the meals!). On ships like the 686-person Azamara Journey, travelers don’t have to worry about getting lost on the ship — they can put their energies into getting lost on shore. And when everything is steeped in centuries of ancient history, cruising can help organize a kaleidoscope of beauty into one memorable voyage. It’s no wonder Odysseus wanted to go back so badly.

Mykonos Part of the Azamara experience is getting the chance to explore after the sun goes down. Sometimes, that can mean an impromptu jaunt to a restaurant like Hippie Fish, where the sardines are fresh and Greece’s national drink, ouzo, makes it very easy to forget that the ship does, in

fact, depart. Racing through the maze of shops and restaurants in the Mykonos town to get back on the ship is only part of the adventure. And if you stop to take a photo with the town’s resident mascot, a pelican named Petros (the second or third, depending on who you ask), the only thing that really matters is that you make it back on time.

Traveling on what is essentially a oating building can mean small destinations are overrun with people who just hopped o the same ship as you did.

MLB. NESN breaks recent tradition, replaces Dell with male Sox reporter

Junichi Tazawa and the Red Sox dropped Game 1 of their 162-game season Monday in Baltimore. / GETTY IMAGES

Red Sox see an Opening Day dud in loss to Orioles MLB. The Red Sox fell in their first game of the 2014 season as they struggled to produce runs. Red Sox starter Jon Lester threw 104 pitches over seven innings in what would typically be considered a terrific first start — but it was his 93rd pitch that he would like to have back. With the game tied at one in the bottom of the seventh, Orioles slugger Nelson Cruz belted the first pitch of the inning over the wall

On the road again It marked the fourth straight and 16th out of the last 19 years that the Red Sox opened the year on the road, going 7-8 prior to Monday. •

The Sox won on Opening Day last season, an 8-2 victory over the Yankees.

They visit the White House on Tuesday to celebrate their World Series title.

They next play Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. on NESN as John Lackey goes up against Ubaldo Jimenez.

By the numbers

Grady Sizemore hit his first home run since July 15, 2011, or 990 days, on Monday. The solo shot accounted for Boston’s lone run on Opening Day.

in left field, putting the Orioles ahead for good in their 2-1 win over the Red Sox on Opening Day on Monday. Grady Sizemore continued his hot spring and triumphant return to baseball as he went 2-for-4 with a home run. Every player in the Red Sox lineup recorded a hit, except Daniel Nava and Will Middlebrooks. Dustin Pedroia extended his season opener hit streak to eight, passing Mo Vaughn for the longest in club history. The Red Sox had their chances to tie the game as they left two runners on in both the eighth and ninth innings, including a David Ortiz fly out to center with the tying run on second in the ninth. Overall, Boston went 0-for-9 with runners in scoring position. RYAN HANNABLE @Hannable84 sports@metro.us

Broadcasts of Red Sox games on NESN will look somewhat different now than they did in 2013. On Opening Day, NESN threw something of a curveball at Sox fans as the network had Gary Striewski reporting on the sidelines. The sideline reporter job has been in flux at NESN since Jenny Dell went public with her relationship with Boston third baseman Will Middlebrooks in late December. Dell was “re-assigned” and appears on NESN SportsDesk. Female reporters Elle Duncan and Sarah Davis had worked several spring training games on NESN in March, but it was Striewski who got the nod on Opening Day against the Orioles. Striewski is the first male Red Sox sideline reporter since Eric Frede (2004-05). He follows the likes of Tina Cervasio (2006-08), Heidi Watney (2008-11) and Dell (2012-13). Striewski was hired as a NESN
