STILL STRONG A dark day. The Boston Marathon was forever changed one year ago today when two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line, killing three, wounding 260 and leading to a massive manhunt.

A brighter future. The resiliency of survivors and the local community has shown how truly strong Boston — and America — is. PAGES 12-13

THE MILLER FAMILY

Family adopts dog that raced Metro-North train A dog rescued last week after racing alongside a Metro-North train from the South Bronx to Manhattan was adopted, officials said Monday. The dog, named “Tie” by MTA workers for the railroad ties she ran across last Tuesday, was adopted by the Miller family Sunday after no owner came forward. Animal Care & Control of NYC received more than 100 queries and 36 applications to adopt Tie, according to Jessica Vaccaro, adoption supervisor at the organization. While the outpouring of interest in Tie was appreciated, Vaccaro said the group is also looking for homes for roughly 300 other animals. Visit the Animal Care & Control of NYC website at nycacc.org for information.

“You know, the big loser today is New Jersey. And I want to say to New Jersey, we hope you have a wonderful July 4, and we hope you enjoy your fireworks shows. But now three or even four boroughs – I think that from Staten Island you’ll be able to see some of this show – will be able to enjoy this.” Sen. Daniel Squadron

Five years after losing the annual Fourth of July fireworks to the Hudson River, Macy’s annual event will make a triumphant return to the East River. Flanked by fellow elected leaders near the Brooklyn Bridge, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on

Monday that the massive pyrotechnic display would move back to the city’s East Side after sharing the fireworks with Manhattan’s out-of-state neighbors to the west. Amy Kule, an events executive producer for Macy’s, explained that while the Hudson River has played host since 2009, the fireworks have moved around Manhattan in the last 50 years. “We’ve always been nomadic in nature,” Kule said. One reason for the move, according to Kule, was a “bigger and better” display. Calling it a creative

departure from previous shows, the display will take over the Brooklyn Bridge, using the structure as one of the four launching pads for fireworks. The bridge would have to close during the display, and de Blasio said the city would need to cover additional security costs. “And I think it’s well worth it, considering that hundreds of thousands more New Yorkers will be able to benefit from this,” the mayor said.

East side

Here to stay? As to how long Macy’s might continue to use the East River for the annual show, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he hopes to keep the fireworks display along the East River’s banks for as long as he can. •

“I savor this new location,” he said, “and we’re going to do everything we can to make that as typical as possible – as frequent as possible.”

NYPD. Shooting spurs Happy birthday. Mets offer seats heightened security at 1964 prices to honor old venue The New York City Police Department is heightening security measures in local synagogues after Sunday’s shooting at Jewish community centers in Missouri. Hours after a suspect was arrested in the shooting deaths of three victims in a Kansas City suburb, local officials and authorities in New York City vowed to be vigilant

on the eve of the Jewish holiday of Passover. Late Sunday, Mayor Bill de Blasio offered the city’s condolences to the shooting victims, their families and the larger Jewish community. The NYPD said on Monday that it would increase police presence around Jewish communities and religious centers. CHESTER JESUS SORIA

Shea Stadium might be gone, but the Mets want to rekindle some of their old glory this weekend. In honor of what would have been the field’s 50th anniversary, the Mets are offering tickets priced at how much they cost back in 1964, when Shea first opened. For one weekend only, Friday through Sunday, a limited number of tickets

for the team’s hometown bouts against the Atlanta Braves are going for as low as $3.50 in the backrow Promenade Box section at Citi Field. Shea, the Mets’ original home, was closed in 2008 after 44 years of games. It was demolished the following year and replaced with a parking lot for Citi Field. CHESTER JESUS SORIA

Travel. Airbnb asks NY to change law that costs $21M in taxes Airbnb, the startup accommodation service that has been valued at billions of dollars, called on the state of New York to change a law that prevents it from collecting $21 million in taxes each year from its hosts. The tax law, which says only hotels can collect and remit occupancy taxes, excludes Airbnb because the state does not consider it a hotel service. The San Francisco-based company wants New York to allow Airbnb to classify itself as a hotel so it can collect the taxes. “New York will lose millions of dollars because current tax law prevents Airbnb from collecting and remitting occupancy-related taxes,” wrote the company’s head of public policy, David Hantman. Airbnb has come under fire in New York and

A 42-year-old Brooklyn man with a long rap sheet was gunned down outside the public housing project where he lived early Monday morning, police said. Armal Mallory was found with gunshot wounds to the torso and head about 12:15 a.m. in front of his home at 79 North Oxford Walk, part of the Whitman Houses, in Fort Greene. Police said he was declared dead at the scene. The investigation into the shooting, including determining a motive for the murder, is ongoing. Police said Mallory had an extensive criminal history, with at least eight charges dating back to 1989 through last year. ANNA SANDERS

Central Park’s best-kept secret opens to public Exclusive. The four-acre Hallett Nature Sanctuary was closed in 1934. As New Yorkers filed into office buildings for work on Monday, Central Park gardener Shanna Blanchard settled into her job surrounded by birds, wildflowers and ferns. Blanchard is the Hallett Zone gardener for the Central Park Conservancy. Every day, she works to restore a four-acre nature preserve that had been untouched for decades. Hallett Nature Sanctuary, nestled in the southeast corner of the park and surrounded by the Pond, is an area most people do not know exists. The Central Park Conservancy began offering tours of the area last fall, but now the public can explore the sanctuary during scheduled open hours. Protected by a chainlink fence, the sanctuary was closed to the public in 1934. It was an experiment of sorts: What would happen to a woodland area in a large city if it were left unmaintained? Over time, invasive species such as wisteria and Japanese knotweed began to dominate the preserve. “When we first came in here, it was completely overgrown,” said Neil

Plant life in the sanctuary

Calvanese, the vice president of operations for the conservancy. In 2001, the conservancy began working to clear the area. And now, New Yorkers have a place where they can immerse themselves in nature within minutes. “It’s very transportive. You have the traffic, 59th Street and Fifth Avenue with a very different

sound,” Blanchard said. “In here, what you hear is birds and water.” Visitors will be able to see flowers such as the Jeffersonia diphylla or Uvularia grandiflora that have just sprouted thanks to the warm weather. They may also catch a wave of birds flying in. The sanctuary will be open from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, and then every Tuesday during May. The schedule for June through August will be available on the Central Park Conservancy’s website. “It’s going to be a real treat for the public,” Calvanese said. “We’re a block from 59th Street looking at wildflowers and ferns. Somehow, I think that’s a great thing.” LAURA SHIN @metronewyork letters@metro.us

Toward the end of the day, he again began to cry when answering questions about the immediate aftermath of the shooting. State prosecutor Gerrie Nel, whose reputation as one of South Africa’s toughest attorneys has earned him the nickname “The Pitbull,� said the athlete was just putting on an act to avoid having to answer his questions. Nel questioned why Pistorius would get upset when being asked about whether he did or did not open doors leading from his bedroom to a balcony to shout for help minutes after the shooting. REUTERS

Suspect in killings at Kansas Jewish centers has hate-filled history Weapons. Police said that the gunman used a shotgun and other firearms. The suspect in the Passover Eve killings of three people at two Jewish community facilities in a Kansas City suburb has a long history of racism and antiSemitism, human rights groups said on Monday. Frazier Glenn Cross, 73, faced charges of premeditated murder at his initial court appearance on Monday afternoon. He was arrested Sunday after a shooting spree that killed a 14-year-old boy and his grandfather outside a popular Jewish community center, and a third victim outside a nearby Jewish retirement home. Both facilities are in Overland Park, Kan., an upscale suburb outside of Kansas City, Mo. Police said it was too early to determine if Sunday’s killings were motivated by anti-Semitism, but both the Southern Poverty Law Center, a

The groups said Cross, a Missouri man who also goes by the name Frazier Glenn Miller, was involved in creating an armed paramilitary organization in North Carolina 20 years ago. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder issued a statement Monday pledging federal help in determining whether the federal hate crimes statute was implicated in the “heinous” killings. “I was horrified to learn of this weekend’s tragic shootings outside Kansas City.

The breach allowed hackers to extract social insurance numbers, which are used for employment and gaining

access to government benefits, and possibly some other data, the Canada Revenue Agency said.

John Stoller was about to finish his 26th mile at last year’s Boston Marathon. As he came through the final stretch of Boylston Street,

he stopped to chat with friends in front of Forum restaurant. “Usually I don’t stop,” says Stoller, who finished a quick conversation before continuing past the finish line. “I received my medal and had gotten my bags. … Then we heard the first blast.”

BOSTON MARATHON: STILL STRONG ONE YEAR LATER Meanwhile, above Sugar Heaven on Boylston Street, the staff of Marlo Marketing/Communications was celebrating its annual marathon party when the first blast hit. “There were a few seconds of deliberation — no one really knew if it was safer inside or on the street,” says Marlo Fogelman, principal of the company. “Then the second bomb went off and everyone just scrambled onto the fire escape through the back windows.” Down on the street, victims were tended to by first responders and good Samaritans. The fear of a third bomb detonating meant the crowd had to be removed, and fast. As officials worked to identify the bombers during the next couple days, the city attempted to function. For MBTA Transit Officer Dic Donohue, the sense of a calm before the storm

would certainly ring true by the end of the week. “The next few days were very strange,” Donohue tells us. “The usual bustling downtown area that I work in was quiet, and entire streets were shut down.” Police soon identified two suspects in the blasts. Video surveillance from Forum caught brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Chechen-born locals who resided in Cambridge. By Friday, they had allegedly murdered MIT Police Officer Sean Col-

lier and led authorities on a violent chase in which Donohue was shot. Laura Glass slept in at her Cambridge home after staying up all night listening to the news. When she awoke the next day to an FBI agent barging into her home, she started to put the pieces together. “It only took me a few minutes to figure out what was going on — the two brothers lived a few doors down from me,” said Glass. While older brother Tamerlan was killed, younger brother Dzhokhar was apprehended in a dry-docked boat in a Watertown backyard. In the end, four people were left dead and hundreds more injured. But as the 2014 Boston Marathon nears, runners are ready to take on the 26.2 miles without a second thought. “For runners it’s an

Haunting memories On Stuart Street, family members who had just been holding up signs of encouragement for runners were using them as a tool to find each other, fearing they had been killed in the blast. •

BOSTON MARATHON: STILL STRONG ONE YEAR LATER

Piecing things together one year later For the record. The project manager for “Dear Boston: Messages from the Marathon Memorial” shares her experience.

“There is a lot of divorcing yourself from the emotional aspect. You just tell yourself, ‘You have to get through this,’” said Anne Starr, one of the people who spent recent months sifting through thousands of objects left at the original Boston Marathon bombing memorial. “That being said, there is something in every box that brings tears to your eyes.”

Starr worked as project manager on “Dear Boston: Messages from the Marathon Memorial,” an exhibition of memorabilia on display at the Boston Public Library. In the days following the fatal terror attack, thousands of people left their condolences in Boston’s Copley Square. Teddy bears, tattered running shoes, flowers and letters revealed the sheer sadness that visitors collectively felt as they passed by the nownotorious finish line. The development team started moving full steam ahead on the exhibit in January, which meant the team had to be decisive on which of the thousands of items would be selected. “So in a matter of two and a half months, we

The exhibit is free and open to the public, and will remain in place until mid-May, at which point the items will be returned to the Boston City Archives for safekeeping.

went from very beginning stages of the exhibit to opening it to the public. Museums usually take a year or two to do that, so we didn’t have a whole lot of time to pour over the objects,” said Starr. The objects that most spoke to her, Starr said, were related to people who were there on that fateful day, like running shoes, some bearing poignant notes written in marker. Marathon spectators Martin Richard, 8, Lu Lingzi, 23 and Krystle Campbell, 29, were killed and more than 260 others were injured when two bombs exploded at the Boylston Street finish line on April 15, 2013. Days later, MIT Officer Sean Collier, 26, was shot and killed, allegedly by the bombing suspects as

they attempted to flee the Boston area. “There was a note from Martin Richard’s teacher that stopped all of us in our tracks. It’s really kind of unpredictable which things will grab hold of you,” said Starr. The centerpiece of the exhibit: 150 pairs of colorful running shoes arranged in a large square shape. Things made by children, photographs of the victims, marathon bibs and handmade signs also were among the items selected for Dear Boston, though Starr said the display represents only a small percent of the objects left at the memorial. Visitors can walk through three sections of the exhibit. The first area includes objects that rep-

Interview. Marathon bombing hero Carlos Arredondo tips his cowboy hat to Bauman, Boston and first responders surgery, and not only went through surgery, but he also described one of the criminals who was standing right next to him the day of the bombing. He managed to look that person up and down. [Bauman] helped to bring a case against these criminals. Life works in strange ways. I helped to save his life, and he ended up recognizing the criminals.

Carlos Arredondo was dubbed the Cowboy Hat Hero last year after iconic photographs captured him assisting with the rescue of Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman, who lost both legs in the attack. We sat down with him to talk about the one-year anniversary. Do you think that one of your purposes in life was to help save Jeff Bauman? It’s a miracle the way things happened. So many people did amazing work that day, and I did what I could. I prayed to God to protect me and give me some guidance to protect Jeff. ... It worked out, and Jeff finally went through

supporting each other so we can have a better day. Do you have any fears about going? I am scared [of] just going back, and being with the survivors and waiting for that moment, around 3 p.m. Hopefully nobody freaks out and starts getting sick about it. But I understand that some other survivors can’t handle it, so they’re going to stay away. What do you think when people call you a hero? It’s a little bit uncomfortable, you know? When people call me a hero, and I just look behind me at the many people who

were there at the time, helping out. ... I’m just very grateful for everybody who was there helping out. What was it like for you to see Jeff for the first time after the bombing? He was very thankful. Immediately I saw this young man in bed and saw that he was going to be OK. ... I love the kid. He’s very funny. He’s a great guy. It’s a miracle to see him doing the things he does. What’s it like for you to suddenly be in the spotlight? It has changed things, but ... we are very happy and proud to help in any way we can.

resent the first minutes, hours and days after the attack. The second features objects related to a little later, like vigils, fundraisers and group runs. The final stage of the exhibit bears a message of hope, and even includes a “hope for the future” tree that allows visitors to write down their hope and string it on a branch. “People are still trying to make meaning out of what happened. Those objects offer much more reflection on what this means, and how we can move forward as a community,” said Starr. “Our goal is to help facilitate some healing.” MORGAN ROUSSEAU @MetroMorgan

Bonus question

What positives do you feel have come from the tragedy of the bombing? It’s been amazing how people have been participating to help. They’ve collected funds for survivors and the victims’ families. I think the One Fund really brought a lot of people together and made good things happen. Prosthetics are very expensive, so [the survivors] need all the help they can get. It’s been amazing how Boston has handled all this tragedy.

Survey. The No. 1 money mistake couples make Relationships can move pretty fast, especially when you live in an expensive urban area. It’s easy enough to rationalize that if you’re spending most nights together anyway, you might as well save on rent money and move in together. If you’re still living separately, you might want to check out what 1,000 cohabitating renters told Rent.com so you can learn from their experiences. After giving 1,000

couples a survey, Rent.com found that the No. 1 regret most cohabitants had was not talking about how to divide the finances before moving in together. Talking about money may not be fun, but it can be a big enough problem to ruin a relationship.

Stand out with an odd major Quirky. Make your area of study into a conversation piece. It is becoming increasingly important for college students and graduates to do everything possible to stand out in the growing crowd of job-seekers. One way that’s bound to make you stick out and get an employer’s attention is to pursue an unusual and out-of-theordinary major during your time at college. Check out a few majors that will get employers talking:

Folklore and Mythology School: Harvard University Location: Cambridge, Mass.

A degree from Harvard is still a conversation piece in and of itself. But if you’re looking to spice it up, the Folklore and Mythology program could be the place to begin. With courses such as Witchcraft and Charm Magic, Continuing Oral Traditions in Indigenous Communities, Hero and Trickster and African Women Storytellers, there’s a lot of fertile ground. You will have the option of majoring in either Folklore or Mythology.

Puppetry

without showing their faces, puppetry could be the way to go. The program offers you the chance to showcase your talent by organizing and hosting you own puppet shows, both on the university campus as well as in museums and theaters across the states. Since the program launched in 1964, students have created almost 500 puppet productions. The program has high success rates as well: Alumni can be seen performing and designing for a variety of theaters, television shows and more. SHAHEERAH KAYANI

HAVE SOLID STRUCTURE.

By the numbers

A quick look at how Americans are saving In the sixth iteration of Sallie Mae’s “How America Saves for College” report, the numbers tell some familiar tales, but there are also a few surprises. After the crash of 2008, families had a hard time saving money for college-bound students. Now, families are increasingly able to help students pay for their education. It’s clear that college is a priority for families: The report showed that 89 percent of the 2,020 survey respondents valued a college education highly. Take a look at our breakdown of the numbers:

1

Savings are up 7 percent in comparison to the 2013 report.

GREAT CAREERS

2

The average amount that families are saving for college is up 30 percent from last year at $15,346. (Last year, the number was $11,781.)

How they do it

45%

Nearly half of families use a general savings account as opposed to a 529 or another designated savings fund.

Just over half of all families in the study have money set aside h ffor their child’s colllege education, trailing slightly behind the amount that families are saving for retirement.

EDITOR’S NOTE: NO FAMILIES REPORTED USING A PIGGY BANK. COLOURBOX

The families who are not saving for college, according to the study, say they don’t have the income to set aside, which is pretty much a no-brainer. Non-savers also anticipate that a larger share of their child’s college education will be paid through grants and scholarships.

Pharrell Williams, what have you wrought? Men, women and cats all donned hats at Sunday night’s MTV Movie Awards — with mixed results. First up to make a statement: actress Hana Mae Lee, who donned this odd cigarette cap. It’s so weird I don’t even know what to say, other than I guess she wanted to stand out a little bit. Eh, it worked? Oscar winner Jared Leto (will we ever get used to describing him that way?) wore this oversized straw cap and looked — dare we say it? — kinda hot, in a Banana Boat way. Meanwhile, Kesha looked like a “Flowers in the Attic” reject in this goth felt cap. Finally, no hat recap would be complete without this shot of Grumpy Cat wearing Pharrell Williams’ trademark Vivienne Westwood mountain hat. British people, take note: THIS is how you wear a hat.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re darn tootinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! Interview. Kate Walsh didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to do the big accent for her stint on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargo.â&#x20AC;?

Kate Walsh plays a stripper-turned-bored housewife in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargo.â&#x20AC;? GETTY IMAGES

Kate Walsh could have been in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargoâ&#x20AC;? twice. In the mid-1990s, Joel and Ethan Coen were casting their film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I lived in Chicago at the time,â&#x20AC;? the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anatomyâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Private Practiceâ&#x20AC;? actress says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was an up-and-coming actress. I was a huge [Coens] fan, but I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the part.â&#x20AC;? But now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the TV series version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargo,â&#x20AC;? a miniseries that tells another tale of murder and crime in sleepy, seemingly polite North Dakota. She plays Gina, the ex-stripper whose philandering, wealthy husband is, in the first episode, murdered by a hitman (Billy Bob Thornton) at the behest, sort of, of a nervous insurance salesman (Mar-

tin Freeman). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of cool to have come full circle,â&#x20AC;? she says. Walsh isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a lot of the show, but her scenes represent its broadly comic side. Gina is not sad that her husband has taken a blade to the head, and isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t above straddling Freemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character. Walsh filmed her scenes off-and-on over the course of the months-long shoot. That might have been jarring for her, having to get in and out of character. But

it helped, in a way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was an outsider trying to fit in,â&#x20AC;? she says, pointing out that her character is not from there. Doing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargoâ&#x20AC;? was a change of pace for Walsh, who spent eight years with the same character: Dr. Addison Montgomery on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Greyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Practice.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The most challenging thing was keeping the continuity. I would only come in once a month.â&#x20AC;? The downside is that sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the few ac-

perhaps best encapsulated by the ďŹ lmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famous wood chipper scene. This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the ďŹ rst time â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fargoâ&#x20AC;? has been milked for television. In 1997, there was a pilot starring Edie Falco as the ďŹ lmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hero, Marge Gunderson. It was directed by Kathy Bates. It was not picked up.

I was like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Are you sure you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the accent? Are you SURE?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Although she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to stay with her character long â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the show is a oneoff, telling one story over 10 episodes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she came to really love Gina. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really liberating to play someone who says what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thinking,â&#x20AC;? Walsh says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honest and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a survivor. I identify with that. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s basically a prostitute â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a former stripper who thought she married really well. But now she desperately wants out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like I would need to get out of there too. I would not want to live in that mansion. I would not want to live in Fargo.â&#x20AC;?

Tye Sheridan may be one of the busiest teenagers in film. After an attention-grabbing start in 2011â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Tree of Lifeâ&#x20AC;? and 2012â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mud,â&#x20AC;? 17-year-old Sheridan now stars in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joe,â&#x20AC;? David Gordon Greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offbeat, darkly comic tale about a teenager (Sheridan) who befriends a surly ex-con (Nicolas Cage). Plus, Sheridan has four more films in the can set to come out this year. Somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of an overachiever.

Kyle Wilamowski, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been working on this for, like, eight or nine years, and this is his first feature. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always fun to work with someone like that because you know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put their heart and soul into the project. I love doing small, independent

FILM stuff because this is what people really care about. And I just did a film called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dark Places.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an adaptation of a novel by Gillian Flynn. My character is convicted of murdering his family, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be really dark. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of Satanic, too. [Laughs]

What are you looking for in future roles? Anything that gives me a challenge. Anything that I have passion for, where I love the material. I worked on a film called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Grass Stainsâ&#x20AC;? last summer with a writer/director named

Walking away from the Walkmen Solo. Hamilton Leithauser emerges with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Black Hours.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Though many lyrics on Hamilton Leithauserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solo debut are worthy of a title like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Hours,â&#x20AC;? the singer promises that none of the darkness is related to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;extreme hiatusâ&#x20AC;? that his band, the Walkmen, made public last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be easy to read into that,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean I wrote a song like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Need Anyone,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; one, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed ed to be a love song. I can see how that would easily translate into that story, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not where it comes from.â&#x20AC;? The music is a logical extension of where the band were headed with their 2012 album, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heaven,â&#x20AC;? but it is willfully less accessible. The album begins with the singerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice against a stark piano and a dramatic string section, an arrangement evoking a crooner from bygone days, albeit with a more cynical sneer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you wonder why I sing these love songs when I have no love at all?â&#x20AC;? he sings on opener, â&#x20AC;&#x153;5 AM.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;5 AMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was the first thing I did and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I really realized I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to just play rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I thought I wanted to do all these

very heavily influenced by Frank Sinatra, strings and big band music.â&#x20AC;? But as Leithauser headed further in this direction, he was contacted by Vampire Weekend maestro Rostam Batmanglij about a collaboration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rostam and I started working together and he wanted to do rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll,â&#x20AC;? says Leithauser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I wanted to, but all of the sudden it was fun to do rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll again, so the record is half and half.â&#x20AC;? The rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll half is welcome contrast to a welc the moodier piecees, as many of the ssunnier â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Hoursâ&#x20AC;? tracks H ffind Leithauseerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice paired with female vow cals, courtesy of cals Amber Coffman of the Dirty Projectors. But not all of Leithauserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collaborators are new. Walkmen guitarist Paul Maroon is featured prominently, but his playing is decidedly different from the subway tunnel reverb that defined the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound for a decade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He and I are both aware that we were two big presences in the Walkmen,â&#x20AC;? says Leithauser, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing it under a different name, there has to be a reason we are doing it, and really vary up what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing with his sound and what heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playing.â&#x20AC;?

TRAVEL

Destinations. This West Coast city offers sun, surf and spas for Northeasterners looking to spring into summer. Southern California has a well of wellness-related fun. Located about 40 miles north of San Diego, the coastal city of Carlsbad has been tempting vitality-loving visitors since tapping its mineral spring in 1882. In keeping with its healthful history, some of the city’s most popular resorts and spas will hold Women’s Wellness Weekends this May, offering a variety of tranquil activities that range from personalized spa treatments to a farmto-table tour, sunrise yoga on the beach and more. “We really want this to be an intimate experience,” says Jeannette Handson, spa director at the Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa (www.hilton.com). “We work very hard to make sure the therapist embraces you.” Hilton Carlsbad Oceanfront Resort & Spa, Beach Terrace Inn, West Inn & Suites, Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa and Omni La Costa Resort & Spa are all offering discount packages for the Women’s Wellness Weekends promotion next month, with savings of 30 percent off regular rates.

At the Flower Fields, a sprawling 50-acre ranch blooms with beauty as rows of colorful giant tecolote ranunculus blossoms soak up the sun on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Adventure seekers can enjoy the waves and sun on a stand-up paddleboard, and animal lovers can hike at Batiquitos Lagoon, one of the few remaining tidal wetlands on the Southern California coast.

While there’s no doubt that indulging in spa treatments is any gal’s idea of a perfect weekend, Carlsbad offers plenty of options for those looking to stay active on their retreat.

Electric bike tour with Pedego Carlsbad

Hop on a bike.

morgan.rousseau@metro.us

“When you’re in a vehicle, and you’re going through Southern California, I think you can miss a lot,” says Zack Cummins, an electric bicycle tour guide at Pedego Carlsbad. “I know when I ride a bike by the coast, you can hear the waves, you can experience nature more. It allows you the opportunity to pull off to the side and lock your bike up anywhere. There are a lot of beautiful things to see around here.” The beauty of riding an electric bicycle is that you can work as hard as you want — or not at all. “If you’re new to riding a bike, you’ll find that pedaling is difficult. If you’re not used to that, you can use the electric to give yourself speed and balance, then incorporate the pedal when you’re comfortable with it and get a decent workout,” Cummins says.

Foodies can take a tour of West Inn & Suites’ private 3-acre farm, where they can learn about the farm-to-table cuisine whipped up by executive chef Eugenio Martignago.

PARENTING

What unconditional love really looks like

Advice. We talk with Alfie Kohn about what most parents get wrong about rewards and punishment.

Kids today are more entitled, lazy and coddled than ever before, right? It’s a common belief, and it’s one that education and parenting expert Alfie Kohn is trying to dispel. “When evidence and logic go one way, but practices and beliefs are pointing somewhere else, that’s something that has always interested me,” he tells us. In an attempt to reverse the belief that children today are spoiled rotten, Kohn wrote a book called “The Myth of the Spoiled Child,” out now. Kohn’s belief isn’t that it’s impossible to spoil a child; he says it’s of course possible to shower children unnecessarily with too many gifts. He just doesn’t like that many parents believe their kids have to “earn” their praise. “Praise is a way of saying to kids they have to jump through hoops, and then we’ll give them a ‘good job’ or a high five,” Kohn laments. He stresses

that praise shouldn’t be contingent on accomplishments and that developing positive self-esteem shouldn’t depend on being successful; it should be unconditional. He holds this same stance when it comes to punishment and says parents should bring children in on making decisions. “When a child does something wrong, it’s a problem to be solved — not an infraction to be punished,” he says. Of course this type of parenting requires more patience and giving up control, which many parents are hesitant to do, so “The Myth of the Spoiled Child” includes some broad ideas on how to do this and what it looks like. The heart of Kohn’s philosophy all comes down to unconditional love. Whether you agree or disagree with his parenting methods, that’s something everyone can get behind.

“The Myth of the Spoiled Child” is education and parenting expert Alfie Kohn’s 13th book. PROVIDED

New parenting app

Like having a pediatrician in your pocket When you’re a new parent, it’s typical to wonder “Is this normal?” several times a day and to want to phone your pediatrician and ask. Dr. Jennifer Tractenberg is all too familiar

with parents’ endless concerns about their newborns, so she developed Baby Bundle, an app that allows her to be there for her patients 24/7, at least virtually. Baby Bundle not only offers parenting advice, it also tracks development, doctor’s appointments and health information

and has a built-in monitor. You can also upload photos of your child to the app, creating a virtual baby book and photo album. When you enter your child’s height, weight and other information, the app pulls up national averages so you can see how your child compares. EMILY LAURENCE

Re: “A Fresh Look at LesMis,” April 11-13, 2014. I am displeased with your notion that colorblind casting “is work the audience shouldn’t have to do.” What are you suggesting? Maybe audiences should be warned they’ll have to suspend their disbelief (at the THEATER) or maybe actors of color should just not be cast (usually colorblind casting offers more opportunities for actors of color to play typically “white” roles) even if they are the most talented of the actors auditioned. Do you realize that actors of color would continue to be limited in their opportunities for big production, career-making roles, if they were relegated to only productions and roles

Yankees hit by injury bug weeks into season MLB. The Yankees are already dealing with an early season injury epidemic but don’t expect reinforcements. The Yankees are only 13 games into the season, but it is already feeling a bit like last season on the injury front. Mark Teixeira is on the DL and Derek Jeter has missed the last two games with a strained right quad, but those were compounded on Sunday when Francisco Cervelli and Brian McCann were both injured. The news is worse on Cervelli, who suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain

and will immediately hit the disabled list. He’ll likely be out a couple months. McCann had a ball deflect off his hand while catching, but X-rays were negative and he should be available Tuesday. Even early season sensation Yangervis Solarte was limping around the infield Sunday night, though that just came courtesy of an unfortunate hit below the belt. The Yankees were so desperate for a first baseman after Cervelli’s injury they played Carlos Beltran at the position despite having never played there in the majors. Austin Romine will likely be called up to replace Cervelli as backup catcher. MARK OSBORNE @MetroNYSports

Ever since Dave Schultz hammered Dale Rolfe into submission in Game 7 of the 1974 Stanley Cup semifinals on the Broad Street Bullies’ way to their first Cup the Flyers and Rangers have seldom had much affection for each other. Perhaps it’s the proximity of the two biggest cities in the East or the air of superiority that seems to emanate from the Big Apple, but whenever these two square off the intensity seems to rise.

Liberty pull off blockbuster The New York Liberty pulled off a shocking trade for former league MVP Tina Charles Monday night as teams met for the WNBA’s annual

draft. Charles, who is a native of Jamaica, Queens, and played at UConn, was acquired from the Sun for the Liberty’s top draft pick, Alyssa Thomas, (No. 4 overall) and center Kelsey Bone. METRO

The Islanders began the season with playoff expectations for the first time in six years. But they ended it looking more like the team which finished under .500 every season from 2007-08 to 2011-12. But despite the disappointment, general manager Garth Snow told reporters at the team’s breakup day Monday head coach Jack Capuano will be back in 2014-15. “Cappy’s system worked really well at the end of the year,” Kyle Okposo told reporters. “We were outplaying teams, outworking them. Everybody was playing extremely structured and playing in the framework of our team. For whatever reason we got away from that at different times throughout the year.” The Islanders finished the season 34-37-11 but played the post-Olympic break period without superstar John Tavares, who tore his ACL.
