Track donor revealed By HOPE E. TREMBLAY Staff Writer SOUTHWICK - The donor making a new track at Southwick-TollandGranville Regional High School a reality has finally been revealed. The Steven and Elizabeth Nielsen Gift Fund has made a donation of approximately $500,000 for the track. Steven Nielsen is a STGRHS graduate who Superintendent John Barry said “has never forgotten” where he came from. Nielsen also funds the Atkinson Scholarship, one of the largest scholarships given to a student at the high school. Named after longtime math teacher and track coach Dick Atkinson, the scholarship awards $7,500 each year for four years of college to a STGRHS junior. Barry said Atkinson is a legend at the school and was Nielsen’s math teacher and coach. And, apparently, someone who inspired the philanthropist. Atkinson is still inspiring students today. “Everyone knows Dick Atkinson,” said Barry. “We was recently honored for 50 years of service to the school. Even after he retired from teaching, he continued as a coach and he still coaches today.”

Nielsen, who lives in Florida, approached Barry about building a new track last fall. “We kept the donor anonymous until now because we wanted to make sure it was really happening,” said Barry, who also credited the Community Preservation Commission for its $150,000 contribution to the track, as

well as town residents who approved the funds at Town Meeting. Barry said even after Town Meeting, Nielsen remained anonymous until bids were opened and they knew they could afford the track with the funds they had. Barry said it was a very generous See Track Donor, Page 3

By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The Finance Committee and other members of the City Council, completed the departmental review process last night with a discussion of the School Department budget, which accounts for almost half of municipal spending. Ironically, much of the discussion was about funding not included in the $56,693,417 2015 fiscal year budget proposed by Mayor Daniel M. Knapik, a budget which was $935,455 below the level originally requested by the School Committee and millions below the funding requested by building principals and program directors when the budget process began last winter. The principals were asked to submit a budget of need, funding to pull the district up from a level 3 district and attain the goal of being cited as a level 1 system. Westfield schools are assigned the level 3 status because of schools within the district whose students, for a number of reasons, perform poorly on standardized tests. School Superintendent Suzanne Scallion said that the Longmeadow District is the highest ranked system in western Massachusetts and is only a level 2 district. There is no level 1 systems in this half of the state, Scallion said. The principal submitted a $6.5 million request to finance the purchase of classroom technology and software Dr. Suzanne programs, spending intended to Scallion improve student performance and lift the status of the system. “Of that $6.5 million requested by building principals, not a dime is in the budget before you, and the mayor cut another $1 million,” Scallion said. The district is dedicating funding and resources to a number of in-house special education programs “for both philosophical and financial reasons,” Scallion said. The philosophical reasons are social integration and avoiding daily transportation, often longer than an hour, for special needs students placed into programs outside the district. The financial reasons are cost avoidance of $100,000 per student tuition and transportation. The cost of initiating those special education programs to address “an emerging population” of special needs students is $2.2 million in the FY 2015 budget. Scallion, who attended the Finance Committee review meeting with 20 supporters, all principals, program directors, School Committee Finance Chairman Kevin Sullivan and the district’s chief financial officer Ron Rix, had a number of interesting exchanges with the council member in attendance. At-large Councilor Dan Allie noted that state aid to Westfield, in particular lottery funding, has declined $6 million over the past five years. See Budget Review, Page 3

Deal would hike minimum wage to $11 by 2017 By BOB SALSBERG Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — A deal struck by House and Senate negotiators would hike the state’s current $8-per-hour minimum wage to $11 per hour by 2017, but would not tie future increases to inflation. The Senate voted 35-4 yesterday to accept the compromise hammered out a day earlier by a conference committee that was trying to reconcile bills passed earlier by the two chambers. The agreement calls for raising the minimum hourly wage for the state’s lowest paid workers to $9 on Jan. 1, 2015, then to $10 the following year, and finally to $11 on Jan. 1, 2017. The compromise does not include a Senate proposal that would tie subsequent increases to the U.S. Consumers Price Index. The House version of the bill called for raising the minimum wage to $10.50 over three years, but without automatic increases for inflation. Both chambers had originally sought to make the initial increase in the minimum wage — which has not gone up since 2008 — effective on July 1. But some employers had expressed concern

about implementing the change that quickly, so lawmakers agreed to push the effective date back six months to Jan. 1. “Even though they work hard, some of them working two or three jobs, they are not making it in Massachusetts and hopefully this is going to help them,” Senate President Therese Murray said of minimum wage workers prior to yesterday’s debate. Even with the increase to $11, many would still remain below the poverty level, Murray added. The compromise also adopts the House proposal for raising the current $2.63 per hour minimum wage for tipped workers, such as restaurant servers, to $3.75 per hour over three years. The Senate version would have gone to $5.50 for tipped workers. Jon Hurst, president of the Retailers Association, warned the minimum wage increase could drive many stores out of business. “It’s really no compromise whatsoever from the perspective of small businesses here in Massachusetts,” Hurst said. “It’s a 38 percent increase in the minimum wage, far above any other state.” The four Republican members of the Senate voted against the bill yesterday.

Minority leader Bruce Tarr said he was disappointed the Senate did not consider other ways of helping low-income residents, such as an increase in the earned income tax credit. The group Raise Up Massachusetts has been gathering signatures to put a question on the November state ballot that would increase the minimum wage to $10.50 per hour in two years and require automatic adjustments for inflation. The group called the compromise “a positive step,” but said it would continue signature collection and wait until after the bill was signed into law before deciding whether to withdraw the ballot question. The bill also includes proposals aimed at reining in what business leaders say are the nation’s highest unemployment insurance costs. Unemployment insurance rates would remain frozen for three years under the bill and rating tables would be updated. The changes would not reduce employee benefits. ———— Associated Press writer Steve LeBlanc contributed to this report.

False fire report not prosecuted By Carl E. Hartdegen Staff Writer WESTFIELD – A woman charged with making a false 911 report in an incident which led to the closing of an Elm Street bar saw the charge not prosecuted in Westfield District Court Thursday. Erin McFague, 33, of 34 Meadow St., had been employed at Tommy D’s Courtyard Pub in March, 2013, and allegedly had called firefighters to tell them to disregard a smoke alarm the department had received saying it was the result of a patron who had activated a smoke bomb. Firefighters and police responded anyway and found that the smoke filling the bar had been created, not by a fire or by a smoke bomb, but by a patron who had brought his motorcycle into the bar and had caused the tire to spin on the dance floor and burn rubber, filling the bar with smoke. The incident led to the revocation of the bar’s liquor license, in May, and in August the bar owner, Gaetano A. ‘Tommy’ Denardo, was arraigned on charges of making a false police report, disturbing the peace and disorderly conduct. Those charges are pending in Westfield District Court. McFague appeared in court Thursday for a pretrial conference and learned that the charge would not be prosecuted.

SSgt Jason Schrecka and SSgt Wesley Sobczyk, both of Westfield, and both members of the 104th Fighter Wing at Barnes Regional Airport, adjust an array of ultra high frequency and microwave antennas during a communications training session Saturday. The 104th Fighter Wing was the first in the state to receive a new stateof-the-art Joint Incident Site Communications Capacity ( JISCC ) control trailer which features an advanced communication system that can be rapidly deployed anywhere in the U.S. to enable vital inter-agency communications at the site of a man-made or natural disaster. The JISCC trailers integrate secure satellite and wireless communications, land mobile radios, voice-over-IP telephones, and video teleconferencing for a complete, self-contained solution. This end-to-end system delivers high- bandwidth connectivity even where the infrastructure is severely damaged. The JISCC terminals provide the high-bandwidth capabilities of satellite- enabled communications with wireless and land mobile radio systems where first responders from different agencies can communicate through one common system locally and at long distances.

Nest of snakes found in Washington sewer pipe WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) — A nest of live snakes was discovered in a Washington state sewer pipe when a contractor ran a video camera down the line. City Engineer Gary Owen told The Wenatchee World (http://bit.ly/1ld2Jgu) he thought there were a half-dozen snakes or more. It’s hard to tell from the video, but Owen thinks they were bull snakes, possibly pets someone flushed down a toilet. The snakes might have tried to exit the sewer through toilets, but Owen says the snakes were sealed off and entombed when a new liner was put in the sewer pipe. The snakes were spotted May 15 in a recessed area of the pipe about 150 feet from a manhole. Owen says there was no way they could have been rescued.

O

n June 13, 1944, Germany began launching flying-bomb attacks against Britain during World War II.

On this date: In 1842, Queen Victoria became the first British monarch to ride on a train, traveling from Slough Railway Station to Paddington in 25 minutes. In 1886, King Ludwig II of Bavaria drowned in Lake Starnberg. In 1927, aviation hero Charles Lindbergh was honored with a ticker-tape parade in New York City. In 1935, James Braddock claimed the title of world heavyweight boxing champion from Max Baer in a 15-round fight in Long Island City, New York. In 1942, the first of two four-man Nazi sabotage teams arrived in the United States during World War II. (The eight were arrested after one of them went to U.S. authorities; six of the saboteurs were executed.) In 1957, the Mayflower II, a replica of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to America in 1620, arrived at Plymouth, Massachusetts, after a nearly two-month journey from England. In 1966, the Supreme Court ruled in Miranda v. Arizona that criminal suspects had to be informed of their constitutional right to consult with an attorney and to remain silent. In 1971, The New York Times began publishing

excerpts of the Pentagon Papers, a secret study of America’s involvement in Vietnam from 1945 to 1967 that had been leaked to the paper by military analyst Daniel Ellsberg. In 1981, a scare occurred during a parade in London when a teenager fired six blank shots at Queen Elizabeth II. In 1983, the U.S. space probe Pioneer 10, launched in 1972, became the first spacecraft to leave the solar system as it crossed the orbit of Neptune. In 1993, Canada’s Progressive Conservative Party chose Defense Minister Kim Campbell to succeed Brian Mulroney (muhl-ROO’-nee) as prime minister; she was the first woman to hold the post. Astronaut Donald K. “Deke” Slayton died in League City, Texas, at age 69. In 1996, the 81-day-old Freemen standoff ended as 16 remaining members of the anti-government group surrendered to the FBI and left their Montana ranch.

Ten years ago:

In Iraq, gunmen assassinated a senior Education Ministry official (Kamal al-Jarah). Former President George H.W. Bush celebrated his 80th birthday (a day late) with a 13,000-foot parachute jump over his presidential library in College Station, Texas. Annika Sorenstam won the LPGA Championship for the second straight year.

Five years ago:

Opponents of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad clashed with police in the heart of Tehran after the Iranian president claimed a re-election victory. Hundreds gathered at a

sprawling hillside cemetery in Los Angeles to attend a funeral for David Carradine, more than a week after the 72-year-old actor was found hanging in a Bangkok hotel room.

One year ago:

The White House said it had conclusive evidence that Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime had used chemical weapons against opposition forces seeking to overthrow the government. The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously threw out attempts to patent human genes, siding with advocates who said the multibillion-dollar biotechnology industry should not have exclusive control over genetic information found in the human body.

Track Donor Continued from Page 1 donation, and an unusual one. “You rarely hear about donations like this to a public school,” he said. “These are the types of things usually given to private schools.” Nielsen’s funds have already been put to use. Construction is well underway at the track, which was already named for Atkinson and will likely be re-dedicated to him upon completion. “The stands are down and they’re now excavating the old track,” said Barry. “They are preparing for the subsurface.” Barry expects the track will be complete by mid-September.

Senate approves $1B convention center expansion BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Senate has approved a bill that would allow for a $1 billion expansion of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. Supporters of the bill that passed 31-6 on Thursday say it is necessary to keep the facility competitive with similar convention centers in other cities, and the expansion will create jobs, provide additional tax dollars and boost tourism. The bill authorizes a 1.3 million square foot expansion. Supporters said the convention center in South Boston, which opened in 1997, isn’t large enough and doesn’t have enough adjoining hotel rooms to attract many large-scale national and international meetings, which are now going to other cities. The House passed a convention center expansion bill last month that promised now new taxes. The House and Senate will work on a compromise.

Budget Review

Massachusetts holds license plate lottery

Continued from Page 1 “That difference has to be made up by taxpayers,” Allie said. “Last year the state had revenue above projections of over $900,000,000 (nine hundred million) and they are on track to have that again this (FY 2014) year.” Allie said that even with budget surpluses the state continues to raid, or loot, the lottery fund, which was created specifically to provide additional revenue to cities and towns, since the Great Recession. “The state has taken $640,000,000 from the lottery over the last five years,” Allie said. “It’s not a fair process.” Rix said that state aid for

BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles is holding its annual low-number license plate lottery. The Registry is accepting applications starting Friday. The deadline is August 11. Registrar Celia Blue notes that the lowest number available this year is 351, which is the number of cities and towns in the state. She says she’d like to see applicants from all 351 municipalities. A total of 160 plates are available. Some of the other plates up for grabs include 535, 7000, 8001, 4T, Q6, X8 and Y11. Blue says the Registry typically gets about 6,000 applications per year. The low-number plates used to be handed out by politicians as favors to the well-connected, but the Registry started the lottery in 1997 to make their distribution more fair.

Massachusetts Democrats begin trek to convention WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Thousands of Democratic activists from across Massachusetts are beginning their trek to Worcester for the start of the party’s nominating convention. The two-day confab begins Friday evening with speeches by two of the party’s heavyweights — Gov. Deval Patrick and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren. Patrick’s speech will be his last to the convention as governor. The party will also officially nominate Democrats who are facing no primary challengers in September, including U.S. Sen. Edward Markey. Friday’s speeches are just the run-up to the main event on Saturday when the convention will hear from candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and treasurer. Candidates who fail to get the support of at least 15 percent of delegates at the convention won’t make it onto the primary ballot in September, effectively ending their candidacies.

Massachusetts Senate OKs celebrity protection bill BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts Senate has approved a bill designed to help protect the commercial value of a celebrity’s identity after they’ve died. The bill was approved by a voice vote in the Senate on Thursday. It gives public personalities who live in Massachusetts “the exclusive right to control the commercial use” of their identity during their lifetime and for 70 years after the date of their death. Comedian and Massachusetts resident Bill Cosby has asked state lawmakers to approve the legislation. Other states have similar laws. A personality can be any kind of a performer or celebrity, but is defined in the bill as “an individual whose identity has commercial value.” Under current state law, legal protections for celebrities end with their death. The Massachusetts House hasn’t taken up the bill yet.

COMMENT Message from the Mayor

LETTER TO THE EDITOR To the Editor Mr. Steve Dondley could not have written a better letter to the editor on June 9th regarding the dilemma of to continue to or not to continue the BID. Early on when the BID was first introduced to Westfield, I was a volunteer for and a believer in the BID as a vehicle to bring back or rebuild a vibrant downtown. I have continued to be a strong supporter of the BID. I understand that there are two sides to the story, and that being a member of the BID is a huge financial commitment on the part of its members. Thank you. Most people who pay attention to the downtown progress can see and know that the downtown is having a rebirth. I fear that if the BID is eliminated that downtown Westfield will fail. Mr. Dondley is right. It it is still early. Birthing is hard. It has taken for example, the Burlington, Vermont BID many many years to help its downtown become a wonderfull vibrant place to shop, eat, recreate and experience art and music venues. I am not suggesting that Westfield become a Burlington, Vermont or a Northampton, MA., but what I am encouraging is patience. Westfield has such great potential. Westfield has won the Kentucky Derby, but must go for the Triple Crown. Please support the BID. Please let the two opposing sides come together and figure it out. SIncerely , Sarah S. Hagen

I would like to share with the citizens the narrative on the budget that was provided to the members of the city council on June 5, 2014. It appears below this article. This year’s budget process has been the most difficult to date in my tenure as mayor. The last five years there has been some optimism for many people, me included, that the recession of 2009, would finally loosen its grip on our nation. It is clear that this hasn’t really happened. Commercial and residential growth is still sluggish in the city and state aid to cities and towns, is still nearly 500 million dollars less today than it was in 2009. An interesting situation though has arisen at the state level. Our state budget is poised to grow again at nearly a 5% rate and it will again be the largest in state history…continuing an unabated trend since a slow recovery began in 2011. But for those of us in local government, we have been left behind by the Commonwealth. Across the state, virtually every city and town, has seen the property tax burden as a proportion of their budgets grow to record levels. The legislative leaders will tell you that they have given municipalities unprecedented tools to help craft their own destiny. There is some truth to that. These tools include health care reform, that saved our city nearly a million dollars and the local option meals and sales tax. In their mind this has been a fair trade off in helping offset the reduction in the growth of local aid. For some eatery heavy communities, I am sure it has had a great impact, but in Westfield it was never adopted for a number or reasons. Though after four full years as mayor, I have relented in my opposition to this tax and have proposed that we adopt the local option meals and hotel tax to help cover the local aid shortfall. I have maintained over the years that the best way to provide meaningful property tax relief is to require the state to fund its obligations to its cities and towns and restore fully the local aid that was cut during the recession. That being said, we obviously have business to attend to here in Westfield. An ever growing portion of our city’s budget is for employee benefits for active and retired employees. The state government has not shown a great appetite to address the burden of retiree health benefits. We couldn’t wait any longer…so earlier this year I commissioned our financial team to develop a working group with our unionized workforce. Representatives across all bargaining units participated in a series of OPEB (Other Post Employment Benefits) meetings that recently concluded. We retained the services of our Health Care Consultant to guide the group through these meeting. The goal…to provide to me by October a unified plan that will address this obligation. The group will reconvene in early September and at that time, after mulling over options over the summer, advance their final recommendations to me. Once I receive them, I will submit any needed legislative remedies to the

FY 2015: Dear Members of the Westfield City Council I submit for your consideration and approval my recommendations for appropriations for Fiscal Year 2015. The budget totals $131,959,521.35. Of this, $117,700,842 is requested for the operation of city and school departments, $2,419,658 for operations of Ambulance services, $438,350 for Community Preservation, $5,392,117 for Sewage and Wastewater Treatment, $244,589 for Sewer services, $5,191,085 for Water Resources, and $572,877 for Stormwater services. This budget contains no layoffs. Overview Building local budgets has become increasingly difficult over the past decade. Throughout the 1990s and into the middle of the last decade, increases in state aid allowed for our community to better manage the impact of property taxes on our residents and businesses. Since 2008, however, state aid pays for less and less of our budget each year. In real terms, net state aid to Westfield is $1.9 million less in Fiscal Year 2015 than it was in Fiscal Year 2008. From FY 2014 to FY 2015, net state aid increased by $45,000, or 0.1%. In the meantime, the state budget is slated to grow by approximately 4.7%. The City is thankful for the partnership we have with our legislative delegation and with the Administration on Beacon Hill as it relates to local projects like the Columbia Greenway, our efforts to rehabilitate Sadie Knox Playground, and economic development initiatives at Westfield-Barnes Regional Airport, but greater attention must be paid to the impact of the deterioration of the local aid compact on the property tax burden placed on residents and businesses. Revenues As referenced above, the stagnation of state aid has constrained the City’s ability to meet its obligations. After limiting our property tax levy increase to 2 percent in FY 14, I am, at this time estimating revenues based on a levy increase of 2 ½ percent in FY 2015. However, like in years past, a final decision will be made when the tax rate is set in the fall. Three of the last four years, I was able to use free cash/ stabilization to offset a 2 ½ percent increase. Working with the Assessor’s office, new growth due to development has been estimated at $800,000. Additionally, I am recommending that the City Council adopt a 0.75% local meals tax as allowed by Massachusetts General Law Chapter 64L §2A. This tax,

according to Department of Revenue estimates, would generate approximately $300,000 in additional revenue for the City. I have also recommended the City increase the hotel occupancy tax to 6% from the current 4%, which we anticipate would generate an additional $40,000. This decision has not been reached in haste. The local option meals tax has been adopted in nearly all communities in our surrounding area. Within the past three months, Holyoke and Attleboro have adopted this local option. That leaves Leominster and Lynn as the only two communities in the state with stronger historic meals tax collections to have not adopted the local option. The consistent message from state government has been that they have provided the tools for us to control our own destiny. To date, we have stood firm in opposition to this tax, which amounts to an additional $.08 on a $10 lunch tab. My opposition has been primarily based upon not only the competitive environment for local restaurants but a predisposition against adding to our citizens’ tax burden. With most local communities having now adopted the tax, the argument relative to competition has faded, while the reality of anemic growth in state aid has set in. Unfortunately, it seems the traditional local aid compact has expired and the City must make difficult decisions in order to make ends meet. I was particularly disheartened by the Legislature’s unwillingness to even debate the issue of local aid during this year’s budget deliberations. I am hopeful, with assistance from our local delegation, that we might have a meaningful conversation about the future of municipal finance in the coming year. General Fund Summary The City’s general operating budget of $117.2 million represents an increase of 3.14% over FY 2014. This represents a reduction of approximately $3 million from departmental requests for appropriation. The budget fully funds the City’s collective bargaining obligations and provides departments with sufficient funding to for annual operations. The increased costs can be attributed to five primary categories- debt service, employee benefits, and employee wage increases. Our debt service accounts have increased by approximately $2 million, employee benefits (health insurance, pensions) by $800,000, and personal services accounts by $1.7 million, or 2.4%. Other new cost items within the budget

include $157,000 within the Department of Public Works account to begin a singlestream recycling initiative, and $360,000 within the Purchasing Department for energy management services. It is anticipated that the move to single stream recycling will result in a year over year reduction in the cost to haul our trash as our volume will decrease and an increase in recycled tonnage which will result in an increase in our recycling grant. This last item represents the cost associated with not only managing our city’s new heating and cooling infrastructure installed under our energy management contract, but also includes the cost of maintaining all of our additional older units. This line item is significant to note, as it represents the cost to ensure our Siemens’ warranties and it also represents the actual cost of maintaining our heating and cooling infrastructure. Under separate cover, I have also submitted a request to establish a department of facilities management. It is anticipated that when this position is established, for the first time in the city’s history, the management of all of its buildings and grounds will be unified under one job position. It is also anticipated that within 18-24 months, some of the costs associated with managing our heating and cooling infrastructure will be brought in house and conducted by our own maintenance staff. At the present time, we are fully unable to maintain the plant in accordance with our energy management contract, resulting in the decision to enter into a contract with Siemens. We cannot let our recent investments in our physical plant decay as we have seen what the cost of decades of deferred maintenance has been. Debt Service Over the past five years, the City has worked hard to improve our physical plant and infrastructure. We have replaced roofs, boilers, and windows at most of our schools and city buildings, we’ve performed much-needed renovations at City Hall, and we’ve begun to address several city parks and downtown roads and infrastructure. This summer, we will begin construction of the Gas Light District project and, with Council approval, on the long-awaited Senior Center project. We’re doing all we can to maximize efficiencies as we plan these projects by incorporating energy management systems and shrinking our footprint, but these See FY2015, Page 8

city council to get the plan rolling. We have made great strides in many areas in the last four years and this budget will continue our forward progress. We have funded initiatives in the school department that have led to impresMAYOR sive student achievement, modernized our city’s DAN information technology capabilities which among KNAPIK many things has allowed us to institute direct deposit and electronic payroll advices reducing labor and material costs, and increase citizen electronic interaction with their government, with more on the way. We continue to modernize our city’s recreational spaces. We will be adding a spray park to Sadie Knox this year, and repairing the basketball court at Papermill playground. The Gas Light District project begins this week and additional sewer extension projects are slated to begin after the fiscal year starts on July 1. But perhaps the most important piece of legislation that I have advanced to the city council, is the creation of a facilities director position. I have in my office a scrap book that was created by the school department starting in 1965 and it ends late in the fall of 1970. There are about seven of these large books I have found altogether covering various periods of time ending in the early 1980’s. It seems past superintendents wanted to keep track of city government. This period of time in the city’s history was very tumultuous to say the least. For the entire period, the city was paralyzed over the debate about needed action to deal with our crumbling school building infrastructure and the need to build a new high school. Both Mayor Burke, famed for her austerity and Mayor Searle our first mayor in 1921, weighed in on the schools issue. Mayor Searle, famous for a scathing speech where he criticized the leaders of the day for looking at the obvious facts of our exploding student population in the early 1900’s and shrinking from the responsibilities of their office that demanded action. He was critical of the obvious need to build more schools and all the time spent dithering and bickering required the city to act fast to build Abner Gibbs, Moseley and Fort Meadow Schools…all of which included the enormous cost condensed into a short period of time could have been avoided. During this time there were mayoral changes, city council upsets and school committee changes. In fact, at one point during this time, seven members of the city council were required to appear in Superior Court to explain their role in cutting the budget due to a taxpayer lawsuit that was initiated after the seven members cast the votes to cut $68,000 dollars from the 1965 school department budget. Of interest, was the attorney for the taxpayers, John Greaney. And a notable line from the debate included one from the city solicitor at the time Dick Dolan, who claimed he couldn’t even notify the councilors individually of their required court appearance because they cut the funding to mail the subpoenas. And he went on to say, that they cut the funding for witness fees as well, so they won’t get paid if they appear. In the end, a settlement was reached and restored most of the funding. Back to the story…our city’s history is filled with generational tales of periodic political dust ups about the condition of our buildings and our recreational facilities…and about every 20-30 years, we have needed massive infusions of money to address what everyone had complained about, a lack of ongoing maintenance. One major reason for this is that within our government, an enormous physical plant infrastructure and recreational grounds, there isn’t one person tasked with understanding building science, maintenance, construction and capital planning and recreational facilities upkeep. In my private sector experience, virtually every large organization from corporations, to cities and to colleges and universities, has a physical plant director. A position tasked with caring for the physical plant and grounds. After this latest four years of investment of over twenty five million dollars, I would like to ensure, that once and for all, we address this vicious cycle of wasted money and political finger pointing. One incredibly important task for this position is to ensure going forward that our investment with our heating and cooling infrastructure remains compliant with our warranties to ensure our guaranteed energy savings. Many years ago, we had a similar program but on a much smaller scale and eventually as there was minimal follow up, the savings were never realized. In the budget for the first time, is the full cost of fully maintaining our heating and cooling plant. It is a large number but I am not going to let our investment decay while in office. The other notable item within the budget is the funding to begin single stream recycling. This has proven in other communities to be very popular. It makes recycling easier, by allowing a combined stream of paper, metal and plastics, and because it is easier tonnage of recyclables increases. At the same time that increases, waste disposal decreases. Over the decade our recycling effort and reduction in waste volumes has stagnated. If funded, in a short amount of time we should realize savings in waste hauling and disposal fees and an increase in our recycling grants. This budget, in order to balance at this point in the year, contains proposals to implement the local option hotel and meals tax, use approximately 2.1 million dollars in free cash and a levy increase of 2.5%. A final determination as to the levy increase will be made when the tax rate is set in the fall. In three of my prior four budgets, only one, taxed to the full 2.5%. Over the next few weeks, there will be many letters of criticism and pulse line will light up with the prognostications of arm chair experts…that we should cut more, even after approximately 3 million in cuts that I have already made. Or one that I find curious, that the mayor should restore the cruiser account…as free cash or the police towing and storage fund is no way to buy cruisers…Well in that case, I sat on the council and cast a yes vote to establish the fund and at that time that was precisely the argument used as to why we should create the account. In the past we had gone long stretches without buying cruisers….much like trash trucks and fire trucks. That has now all changed for the better. Expense items will always loose out to employees…as an example the cruiser account See Mayor’s Message, Page 8

Suspect in North Adams slaying fights DNA request PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A North Adams man charged with killing his elderly neighbor is fighting the prosecution’s request that he provide a DNA sample. Prosecutors say 41-year-old David Delratez beat and stabbed 84-year-old Ellen DePaoli inside her own home on Sept. 17, then fled to Vermont in her car. The Berkshire district attorney’s office wants Delratez to submit to a cheek swabbing to allow for DNA comparison as part of the investigation. The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1qazFhf) reports that Delratez’s lawyer, Nathaniel Green, argued in court Thursday that prosecutors hadn’t met their burden in showing sufficient evidence that his client’s DNA was needed to aid in the investigation. The judge did not immediately rule. Delratez has said a drug dealer he knows killed the woman.

Massachusetts House backs summer sales tax holiday BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts House has given its support to holding another summer sales tax holiday. An amendment added on Wednesday to an economic development bill calls for suspending the state’s 6.25 percent sales tax during the weekend of Aug. 16-17. The exemption would not apply to tobacco products or items that cost more than $2,500. The measure was sponsored by Rep. Brad Jones, the House

Republican leader, and still needs approval from the state Senate and Gov. Deval Patrick. Tax-free holidays have been held several times in recent years. Retailers welcome them as an opportunity to lure shoppers into stores to jumpstart a typically slow time of year. State officials have expressed concern, however, about the loss of an estimated $20 million in sales tax revenue during the weekend.

In fact, The Westfield News has been providing readers with “hyper local” news coverage of Westfield, Southwick, and the Hilltowns all along. Television, radio and regional newpapers only provide fleeting coverage of local issues you care about. TV stations and big newspaper publishers, after years of cutbacks and mergers, frankly aren’t able to provide in-depth coverage of smaller markets anymore.

State says it stopped $9M in fraudulent UI claims

BOSTON (AP) — State officials say they have uncovered an unemployment insurance scheme involving nearly 600 fraudulent claims. Labor and Workforce Development Secretary Rachel Kaprielian (kuh-PREEL’-yun) said the claims had been made through the department’s online system since March, and appear to be the work of organized scammers who may have struck in other states as well. Kaprielian said Thursday that an early detection system caught a pattern of suspicious claims and prevented about 500 from being processed, saving the state $9.3 million. She said about $280,000 in fraudulent claims may have been paid. No arrests have been made and Kaprielian said the information has been turned over to the U.S. Labor Department’s inspector general for further investigation.

HOMEDESIGN

Lemon Gem marigold offers unusual foliage, flowers By LEE REICH Associated Press Marigold is among the most widely planted and, hence, mundane of flowers. Yet I enjoy them as an essential part of summer with their yolk-like blooms and pungent foliage. For those who are bored by marigolds, as well as those who love them, let me introduce Lemon Gem and its kin. Lemon Gem is unlike most familiar marigolds. It belongs to a different species, in fact, than the French or African marigolds soon to open their sunny heads in gardens almost everywhere. Those marigolds you grow for their flowers — large, solid-color pompoms in the case of the African marigolds (Tagetes erecta), and smaller, sometimes multicolored single or double flowers in the case of the French marigolds (T. patula).

A GEM OF A PLANT Lemon Gem is one variety of the so-called Signet marigolds (T. tenufolia), which you might grow just for their leaves. The plants are dainty, no more than about 8 inches high, with leaves that have a ferny texture and bright green color. Lemon Gem leaves also reputedly have a lemony aroma, although my nose has never picked it up. The ferny leaves are a perfect background for knitting together various parts of a flower bed or mixed border. They would be ideal for a knot garden, the kind of garden that has narrow rows of dense, low-growing plants patterned into a two-dimensional design. Lemon Gem isn’t the only Signet marigold on the block. Look also for Tangerine Gem, Red Gem and others. OTHER FOLIAGE MARIGOLDS Speaking of marigold

In this June 2, 2014 photo, the small flowers of Lemon Gem marigold, a different species from common marigolds, stare out like stars from a backdrop of ferny foliage in New Paltz, New York. (AP Photo/Lee Reich)

leaves, let’s look for one moment at two other marigold species notable for leaves. The leaves of Spanish tarragon (T. lucida) have an anise scent and are grown as a substitute for real tarragon where it’s too hot or humid for that plant. Besides its use as flavoring, Spanish tarragon has also been recommended — in a 16th century herbal — for hiccups and for crossing water safely. Irish Lace (T. filifolia) is the other species of foliage marigold, this one with lacy leaves not unlike that of Lemon Gem. Irish Lace has a sweet, anise-y flavor, good for tea, as a flavoring or just for nibbling. (No marigold should be consumed in too great a quantity.) Both Spanish tarragon and Irish lace also bear flowers, but tiny white ones hardly worth mention. LEMON GEM FLOWERS Back to Lemon Gem: Besides being a compact mound of dainty greenery, Lemon Gem does indeed bear flowers. Pretty ones. Each flower is half an inch across, single and lemon yellow. You might think nothing of them from this description, but they pop out profusely through the foliage, each staring out against the verdant backdrop like a star twinkling in the night sky. In my garden, Lemon Gem always stops visitors in their tracks and elicits the question, “What is that plant?” Like other marigolds, Lemon Gem is easy to grow. I sowed seed indoors about a month ago, but you could just plant it outdoors now. Sown directly in the garden, the first blossoms are a bit delayed, but marigolds are precocious, so the plants bloom in just a few weeks anyway. Once blossoming is underway, the show continues into fall. Marigolds are rarely bothered by pests, including deer. Consider planting some seeds of Lemon Gem or the other Signet marigolds and see how you like them.

Kohler brings artists to factory to learn, inspire By M.L. JOHNSON Associated Press MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Kohler sink in your bathroom may be more of a work of art than you realize. The company known for kitchen and bathroom fixtures has opened its factory floor to artists for the past 40 years, allowing them to share ideas and techniques with factory workers so that both can be inspired. Three artists have created pieces produced by Kohler Co., and many more have gone on to design for other companies. The program, celebrating its 40th anniversary, is notable for its longevity and impact on the arts world, said Larry Bush, a ceramics professor at the Rhode Island School of Design. Kohler is unique in letting artists work on the factory floor with employees and providing equipment to create work on a massive scale, he said. “The sort of thing that people can do at the Kohler factory has inspired a lot of work

beyond the Kohler factory,” Bush said. Ruth DeYoung Kohler — a print maker, former teacher and granddaughter of Kohler Co. founder John Michael Kohler — created the Arts/ Industry program at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center soon after taking over as director in 1972. Artists who visited Kohler during a clay exhibition were hungry for access to the factory’s molds and other resources, and eager to learn the techniques used by craftsmen working there, she said. There was little interaction between the worlds of fine art and manufacturing at the time. Kohler convinced her broth-

er, Kohler Co. Chairman and CEO Herb Kohler Jr., to let two artists work at the factory for a month. “They created all these fanciful things with the plumbing products,” she recalled. “So, for example, they took a urinal, turned it on its back, added some clay wheels and filled it full of clay teeth and called it the Tooth Fairy Wagon. And then they took two toilets and put them back to back ... and they turned it into a rocket ship.” The project so captivated Kohler workers that the artists were invited back for another month in late 1974. Since then, more than 400 artists have completed residencies lasting up to six months. A retrospective of their work is on display through Aug. 31 at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, about an hour north of Milwaukee. Jan Axel, who completed two residencies at Kohler in 1979 and 1981, created a sink carved with undulating lines, and the company later produced it commercially. Axel went on to create a program that brought artists to Kohler to embellish plumbing fixtures for sale. Such collaboration was radical at the time. “It was sort of ‘not done’ because people wanted to be considered artists. They didn’t want to be designers,” said Axel, of South Salem, New York, who went on to do product and landscape design. Molly Hatch, a ceramics artist from Northampton, Massachusetts, said her 2009 residency gave her a new career designing tableware for Anthropologie, and stationery and fabrics for other companies. Hatch said that learning to use liquid clay and molds at Kohler allowed her to create pieces with a consistency she couldn’t achieve by hand. At the same time, she was struck by the amount of handcrafting done at Kohler, and she now creates products that combine mass production and a personal touch. “Being exposed to the way things were made on the floor at the factory at Kohler, I realized there’s so much more involved, and a person behind the object, and so much more pride taken in every object,” Hatch said, adding, “It just changed my understanding of the process completely.” Kohler said the factory workers teaching the artists to use molds and other equipment also have been changed by the experience. “They understand that their skills are enormous,” she said, “and their skills are valued by the artists and the company.” ——— Online: John Michael Kohler Arts Center: http://www.jmkac. org/index.php/ex-col Kohler Co. http://www.us. kohler.com/us/Industry-inAction-Factory-Tours/content/CNT400040.htm

Rem Koolhaas strips architecture in Biennale By COLLEEN BARRY Associated Press VENICE, Italy (AP) — In an era of “starchitects,” Rem Koolhaas, who merits mention as one himself, wants to strip the discipline to its barest elements, bypassing the cult of personality and any architectural grandiosity. Koolhaas had no time to waste as he hurriedly but efficiently guided visitors through a one-hour tour of his exhibit “Elements of Architecture” shortly before it opened here last weekend as part of the Venice Biennale’s 14th International Architecture Exhibit. The exhibit covers nothing less than architecture’s evolution from homo erectus’ first man-made fire to heating fixtures of the future, focusing on the plainer elements: ceilings unnoticed overhead; corridors too quickly bypassed; those overlooked conveyances, elevators. “If you look at each element in isolation” you can feel its powerful, psychological dimension, Koolhaas said, beyond any “technical, artistic and pragmatic details.” Koolhaas, 69, is known for eschewing a defined aesthetic in favor of using modern materials and technology to meet clients’ needs. Projects by the Dutch architect and the team he leads at Rotterdam-based OMA have included a plan for the city center of Lille, France, as well as such award-winning buildings as the Netherlands Embassy in Berlin and the new Seattle public library. In preparing for the Biennale, Koolhaas seemed thrilled to have found kindred spirits taken with the fundamentals of the architecture that surrounds us daily, such as a German professor’s thesis on the corridor and an Italian scholar’s study of false ceilings. He himself has written a treatise on elevators. While he has sought to distinguish architecture in this Biennale from art and design — a line that he says has blurred in recent years — he is actually one of the cross-disciplinary masters who have helped blur them. Koolhaas has designed fashion runways for Prada, stores for Coach and cantilevered furniture for Knoll. Despite his purist intentions at the Biennale, design inevitably permeates the “Elements” exhibit, in the Knoll furniture sprinkled throughout the pavilion and in examples, of, say, door handles in a room dedicated to doors through the ages. Other luminary architects and designers, from Walter Gropius to Peter Eisenman to Philippe Starck, are prominently displayed there. And the exhibit coyly adds Koolhaas’ name with a big question mark — an invitation for him to design the perfect door handle. Inside the Central Pavilion, his first stop is the ceiling. Once, ceilings were architect’s playthings, vaunted and vaulted, canvases for fancy. Now, they’re more often simple planes concealing modern heating and cooling units. Sometimes, the unadorned modern planes hide earlier wonders. Koolhaas points to the beautiful, painted domed ceiling in the pavilion, from which he has suspended a cross-section of modern machinery with a partial false ceiling to hide it. “You see a dome recently restored by the Biennale, at great expense,” Koolhaas motions upward. “The ceiling there is sort of a symbolic plane where there is room for beauty and meaning. You look also inside the belly of the false ceiling, and see how the two are fundamentally and radically changed, and how the ceiling has become a thick volume, completely charged with machinery, over which the architect has very little to say.” Koolhaas took two years to realize the “Elements of Architecture” exhibit, enlisting help from OMA staff and

The pavilion won the Golden Lion award for the Best National Participation on Saturday, June 7, 2014.

It is one of three overlapping exhibits he is overseeing as curator of the overall show, called “Fundamentals.” The second, “Monditalia,” explores the Italian predicament of unrealized potential through other disciplines, including dance, music, theater and film. “It’s not Italy as an example, but Italy as a prototype of a recurrent condition,” Koolhaas said. “Basically every country in the world struggles with this paradox: on the one hand, unbelievable gifts, on the other hand, an inability to realize them.” The national pavilions for the first time are organized around one theme, “Absorbing Modernity.” Koolhaas said he asked countries to identify “either episodes or an overview or a unique moment where the process of modernization was at its most acute” in the past century. The Korean Pavilion, which includes material from both North and South Korea for the first time, won the Golden Lion for best national pavilion. Direct collaboration with North Korea proved impossible, said adjunct curator Jihoi Lee, of South Korea. So the curators relied on contributions, including one from Nick Bonner, who has run tour groups into North Korea for two decades. Bonner commissioned a North Korean architect to produce a simple, illustrated booklet, “A Day of an Architect,” which shows architects realizing projects through work, dedication and inspiration.

Mayor’s Message FY2015 Continued from Page 4 (funded when times were better) at $180,000 represents 3.5 patrolmen…frankly I would rather buy cruisers with free cash than cut patrolmen…but what do I know, I’m only the mayor. In my time in government which has spanned twelve years, I have never heard anyone say we should have schools that underperform, reduce our police and fire staffing so that they become unreliable or reduce our trash collection or not care for our infrastructure. I just simply hear that we should cut more… That being said, our government costs money, and like it or not, we generally have relied on two major sources of funding for decades, state aid and property tax. I have explained the state aid problem so that leaves an over reliance on property tax. As nearly 85% of the budget is made up of your public employees, and the cost of employment is ever increasing, our options are very limited. Unlike in manufacturing and other private industries, automation is not likely going to ever be a huge game changer in government due to the human services aspect. Though, interestingly enough, even after we have demonstrated enormous savings by outsourcing our utility bill collections, on occasion I will still hear from some “citizen expert” that it would be more cost effective to return to the old fashion system of bill processing by city employees. This recession has shown that industry can get by with less full time employment and still make great profits…but I don’t think that is a great strategy for government. Your city government is where the rubber meets the road…our most important job, to educate our children to compete in a 21st century world, followed by providing for public safety (effective crime fighting and prevention, top notch EMS and fire protection), caring for our veterans and senior citizens and public works has been funded to a level where I can say confidently we have met those objectives. If you have any questions or ideas for efficiency and reduction, please feel free to email me at mayor@cityofwestfield.org or call 572-6201. Thank you. Sincerely; Dan Knapik, Mayor

investments certainly come with a cost. Fortunately, my finance team has put together a plan under which we will cushion the impact these projects place on our operating budget. This fiscal year, our debt service accounts are set to increase from $5.3 million in FY 14 to $7.3 million in FY 15. I am recommending that the City use $2,000,000 from our certified free cash account in order to meet this obligation in FY 15. This debt service increase is temporary, and the 10-year trend points to significant reductions. In March, bond ratings agency Standard & Poor’s upgraded our profile two notches, from ‘A+’ to ‘AA.’ This, coupled with our acceptance into the state’s qualified bonding program allowed us to have favorable bids at our most recent bond sale in April. The provisions of that bond sale provided the City with the opportunity to receive a

Continued from Page 4 net $4,185,754 million payment from the brokerage house that purchased the bond. While about $540,000 of this premium is required to be spent on new capital expenditures, much of it is eligible for general government use. It is my anticipation that some of this revenue will be used in future years as a reserve for debt decline, meaning we will use it to supplement our debt service payments for a short period of time. Below is a chart that projects our debt service accounts, which summarizes existing debt with a special red area that indicates the debt service required for the proposed Senior Center. This memorandum represents only a brief overview of what is contained in the Fiscal Year 2015 budget. I would like to particularly thank the City Auditor, her staff, and the entire finance team at City Hall for the

hard work they put in to provide and present the information contained in this budget plan. I would also like to thank the citizens and businesses of Westfield for providing the resources necessary to administer our government. Too often their sacrifices go unnoticed, and I know government at all levels demands more of them each year. Lastly, I would like to thank the managers and employees in each department that work hard every day to deliver the services our constituents demand. I strongly urge each Council member and members of the public to ask questions of each department head as you conduct your review of this budget. Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, Dan Knapik, Mayor

Tempers, Rockies top Braves ROCKIES 10, BRAVES 3 DENVER (AP) — Corey Dickerson hit Atlanta catcher Gerald Laird with his backswing and tempers quickly flared, setting off a tense sequence and leading to several ejections Thursday as the Colorado Rockies beat the Braves 10-3. The Rockies led 8-3 in the eighth inning when Dickerson knocked off Laird’s facemask with his swing — Dickerson said it was an accident. Laird was down for several minutes before walking off and being replaced by Evan Gattis. With his next pitch, Atlanta reliever David Carpenter hit Dickerson in the thigh and was ejected. Rockies manager Walt Weiss bolted from the dugout and began yelling at Carpenter, as well as in the general direction of Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez. Weiss was held back by plate umpire Jordan Baker before being ejected. When he returned to the dugout, Weiss smashed a bat against the wall. In the ninth, Rockies reliever Nick Masset hit Gattis in the hip with a pitch. Both Masset and Rockies bench coach Tom Runnells were immediately tossed. Jhoulys Chacin (1-4) pitched seven scoreless innings. Ervin Santana (5-3) took the loss. TIGERS 4, WHITE SOX 0 CHICAGO (AP) — Max Scherzer tossed a three-hitter in his first career complete game, and Victor Martinez hit his 16th homer to lead Detroit. Scherzer (8-2) was back in his 2013 Cy Young form, striking out eight and walking three while outdueling Chicago starter Chris Sale (5-1). Only three times did the White Sox have men in scoring position. Sale was nearly as sharp as Scherzer. He struck out 10 — all swinging — to match a season high and allowed five hits in seven innings. Martinez hit a solo shot into the left field bullpen to lead off the fifth and Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs for Detroit. Bryan Holiday drove in an insurance run in the ninth. GIANTS 7, NATIONALS 1 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Tim Hudson threw seven strong innings and left with a major league-best 1.81 ERA as the San Francisco Giants avoided a four-game sweep and beat

Washington. Michael Morse got three hits and scored twice for the Giants, who had a five-game winning streak before Washington came to town. The Nationals have lost just twice in 10 games. Hudson (7-2) allowed one unearned run and six hits. The Giants are 7-0 in games he has started at home. Blake Treinen (0-3) remained winless at the major league level despite a 2.08 ERA. REDS 4, DODGERS 1 CINCINNATI (AP) — Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer off Zack Greinke, who lost his perfect record at Great American Ball Park, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Los Angeles Dodgers for a split of their four-game series. The Reds won the last two games to finish a 5-5 homestand that left them stuck closer to the bottom of the NL Central than the top. Alfredo Simon (9-3) gave up seven singles in eight innings, joining the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright as the NL’s ninegame winners. Greinke (8-3) had been 4-0 in five games at Great American. PHILLIES 7, PADRES 3 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Pinch-hitter Reid Brignac lined a tiebreaking, two-run double in the sixth inning, John Mayberry Jr. hit a three-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat San Diego in a steady rain to complete a three-game sweep. Brignac, whose three-run homer in the ninth gave the Phillies a 3-0 victory a night earlier, hit a drive off Dale Thayer for a 4-2 lead. Mayberry connected an inning later off Alex Torres. Making a spot start for Ryan Howard, Mayberry also doubled twice. Kyle Kendrick (2-6) allowed one earned run in six innings. Eric Stults (2-8) allowed four runs and eight hits in five-plus innings. ORIOLES 4, BLUE JAYS 2 BALTIMORE (AP) — Kevin Gausman gave up one run over six innings and Delmon Young homered for Baltimore. Nick Markakis had two hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who moved within 3 1-2 games of first-place Toronto in the AL East. Gausman (2-1) allowed five hits, walked three and struck out three in his second consecutive solid outing. Zach Britton worked the ninth for his sixth save. Buehrle (10-3) yielded four runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings to lose his second straight start following a six-game winning streak. The left-hander allowed three runs or fewer in 12 of his previous 13 starts. Toronto has lost three straight and five of six. BREWERS 5, METS 1, 13 innings NEW YORK (AP) — Jonathan Lucroy hit a tiebreaking homer in a four-run 13th inning for Milwaukee in a game that had an unusual rain delay that lasted all of 3 minutes. Aramis Ramirez homered and finished with three hits for the Brewers (40-27) who completed a 5-3 road trip with their 10th victory in 15 games overall, matching a season high at 13 games above .500. The Mets stranded seven runners from the ninth through the 11th and blew a bases-loaded opportunity with a chance to win. They lost for the eighth time in nine games and fell a

Lucroy drove an 0-1 pitch to left field for his fifth home run. Mark Reynolds added an RBI single and Rickie Weeks was hit by Dana Eveland’s pitch with the bases loaded. Zach Duke (4-0) tossed a perfect inning and Francisco Rodriguez finished in a non-save situation. PIRATES 4, CUBS 0 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Andrew McCutchen had two doubles and two RBIs to help Pittsburgh beat Chicago. Russell Martin also doubled twice for the Pirates and rookie Gregory Polanco got a hit in the third straight game since his call-up. Edinson Volquez (4-5) pitched seven effective innings to win for the third time in his last five starts. McCutchen, the reigning National League MVP, broke it open with a two-run double in the fifth off Jeff Samardzija (2-6). McCutchen is batting .428 (18 of 42) with 15 extra-base hits in June. Luis Valbuena had two doubles for the Cubs, who went 0 for 8 with runners in scoring position to fall for the fourth time in five games. ASTROS 5, DIAMONDBACKS 4, 10 innings HOUSTON (AP) — Chris Carter homered leading off the bottom of the 10th inning for Houston. Carter, who homered twice on Wednesday, hit his 13th homer of the season into the Crawford Boxes in left field off J.J. Putz (1-1). Miguel Montero tied it at 4-4 in the ninth with a home run on the first pitch by closer Chad Qualls. Carlos Corporan had a two-run home run and Jon Singleton homered and drove in two runs for the Astros, who have won six of their last eight games.

Lester, Ortiz lead Red Sox past Indians, 5-2 By MATTHEW CARROLL Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — Another strong showing from Jon Lester and a few timely two-out hits led the Boston Red Sox to a much-needed win. Lester worked into the eighth inning and David Ortiz hit a two-run homer as Boston pulled out a 5-2 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night. Brock Holt hit a two-out, two-run double and Daniel Nava had three hits as the Red Sox won for just the third time in their last 10 games, a dismal stretch that began with a three-game sweep by the Indians last week. “At this point it doesn’t matter how many outs there are,” Boston manager John Farrell said. “RBIs, runs scored, whether it’s no outs, two outs, it was just good to get a little breathing room tonight.” Lester appreciated it, too. Coming off his shortest start of the season, Lester (7-7) allowed two runs — one earned — on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts in 7 2-3 innings. “Long at-bats, grinding out (Josh) Tomlin all night. David, obviously there in the fourth, big swing puts us up three,” said Lester, who won for the third time in four starts. “Unfortunately I go out there and give two right back. But the guys did a good job continuing to battle and put up some runs for me.” Koji Uehara pitched a perfect ninth for his 14th save. Jason Kipnis had a two-run single for Cleveland, which has lost three straight games after winning nine of its previous 10. Lester faced one batter over the minimum through four innings and allowed just three singles through five, but let Michael Bourn reach safely to start the sixth when he dropped Mike Napoli’s throw to first. After a double by Michael Brantley, Kipnis cut the deficit to 3-2 with a sharp single that scooted underneath second baseman Dustin Pedroia. But Boston answered in the bottom half, getting the key hits it has lacked so far this season. Tomlin recorded the first two outs before surrendering a triple to Jonathan Herrera. After reliever Nick Hagadone walked Jackie Bradley Jr., Holt delivered a double to left, scoring both runners and restoring the three-run cushion. “We’re hitting the ball hard. We were able to get some two-out hits today,” said Holt, who has a hit in 11 of his last 12 games. Bradley Jr. then helped protect the lead in the top of the seventh with a spectacular inning-ending double play, making a leaping catch in front of the Green Monster before firing to first in time to double-up Mike Aviles. “Unbelievable play,” Lester said. “I don’t know if you can throw the ball further in that outfield. That was huge for me.” Boston took the lead in the second on Grady Sizemore’s RBI double and Ortiz made it 3-0 in the fifth with his 15th homer of the year, a shot to straightaway center off Tomlin. “Early on it was much of the same,” Farrell said of stranding baserunners. “We get into a bases-loaded, nobody out situation (in the second) and hit into some tough luck. “David breaks through for us, as we’ve witnessed many times. Tomlin (4-3) allowed four runs — three earned — on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings, striking out three and walking two. “One of those games I tried to battle through,” Tomlin said. “Made a bad pitch to Ortiz. He made me pay for it. Changed the course of the game after that.” NOTES: A moment of silence was held before the game for former Red Sox manager Don Zimmer, who died June 4. ... Cleveland 3B Lonnie Chisenhall, a left-handed batter, was not in the lineup despite hitting .393 with seven homers and 32 RBIs in 53 games this season. ... Boston RHP Clay Buchholz, on the 15-day DL due to a hyperextended right knee, is slated to throw five innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday. ... Boston 3B Will Middlebrooks, on the DL with a fractured right index finger, also is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Pawtucket on Friday. ... Lester threw eight pitches in the first inning, all for strikes.

By GREG BEACHAM AP Sports Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) — Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals is the hottest ticket in Hollywood. Fans are paying hundreds of dollars for the cheapest seats at Staples Center on Friday night. Thousands more are expected downtown, simply hoping to be nearby when the Los Angeles Kings claim the Cup for the second time in three years. The Kings are trying to block out every iota of anticipation. They know they can’t think about anything but the first period against the New York Rangers, or they’ll likely face another cross-country flight in what’s already the longest postseason in NHL history. When the Kings closed in on a sweep in the Cup finals two years ago, they were besieged by phone calls, ticket requests and overwhelming attention. They promptly went out and lost twice to the New Jersey Devils before finally finishing in Game 6. “I guess practice makes perfect,” Mike Richards said Thursday after a light skate at the Kings’ training complex in El Segundo. “I think everyone is more equipped now, or more ready for it, more aware of what the distractions are and how they can present themselves, and what you need to do to push them away.” The Rangers are in their best spot in the series after winning Game 4 in New York despite Los Angeles’ overwhelming control of the final 30 minutes. And though they’re 0-2 at Staples Center in the series, the Rangers largely played well — and never trailed — in those two overtime losses. Goalie Henrik Lundqvist took control of Game 4 with 40 saves, and he’s eager to steal another win that would make the Rangers’ unlikely quest awfully interesting. “I know if we win (Game 5), they’re definitely going to feel the pressure,” Lundqvist said. “We were in that spot playing Montreal. The closer you are to your final goal, obviously you tend to think more. That’s just the way you work. It’s hard not to.” Here are five things to watch when the Kings attempt to wrap up their second championship in 46 seasons of existence: GET STARTED: In three of the four games in this series, the Kings have never led in regulation after falling into an early 2-0 hole. That’s hardly a formula for a Stanley Cup champion, and Los Angeles is determined to get going more quickly in Game 5. Jarret Stoll said the first period was a major topic of conversation even before the Kings disembarked from their flight home early Thursday morning. “We know we can do more, especially at the start of games,” Stoll said. “That’s going to be our focus going into Game 5.”

FATIGUE FEARS: The Kings are playing their 26th game of the postseason, matching the 1987 Philadelphia Flyers and the 2004 Calgary Flames — also coached by Darryl Sutter — for the longest playoff run in NHL history. What’s more, the Kings are playing their 64th playoff game in the past three years, setting another league record and closing in on their 10th series victory in that span. Yet physical fatigue hasn’t seemed to be much of a problem for the Kings — even for the star players who also suited up at the Sochi Olympics. They also realize the Rangers have played just one fewer playoff game this spring. “Yeah, it’s a lot of games, but it’s why we play,” Stoll said. PUCK POSSESSION: The Kings got back to their puck-dominating style of play in the second half of Game 4, outshooting the Rangers 15-1 in the third period. Los Angeles did it too late to finish a sweep, but the finish reminded the Kings how they play at their best. Los Angeles’ success is built on defense and puck possession, particularly in clearing the puck out of their own end quickly. If the Rangers can’t figure out how to get the puck away from the Kings, they’ll have to hope Lundqvist stands on his head again. “You’ve got to make plays through traffic,” Martin St. Louis said. “We’ve got to put pucks in areas where we can get it, because if you don’t, they bring it right back, and you can never get into your forecheck. (In Game 4) we were trying to get the clock down to zero. We’ll have to be better this time.” LONG ODDS: Although the Rangers’ task seems straightforward when celebrities at the Garden raise four fingers, the players realize the enormity of their challenge. Of the 26 teams that have faced a 3-0 deficit in the Stanley Cup finals, only six teams avoided a sweep and only three extended the series to a sixth game. New York addressed the size of the task by splitting it into four bits. “We’re just pretty excited to still be here,” Derick Brassard said. “We’re going to try to steal a game and go back to the Garden for Game 6, and if we do, everything can happen.” PRESSURE GAME: The Kings didn’t mind when Chicago claimed all the pressure in the Western Conference finals rested on Los Angeles, even while the Blackhawks faced the same 3-1 deficit currently staring down the Rangers. Lundqvist hit much the same notes about the Kings’ advantage Thursday, but New York also realizes what’s at stake. “We’ve got plenty of pressure on us to perform, too,” Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh said. “If we’re not ready, they’re going to take advantage.”

YANKEES 6, MARINERS 3 SEATTLE (AP) — Derek Jeter had a memorable final regular season appearance in Seattle with three hits, two runs scored and two RBIs, and New York completed its first three-game sweep of the season. Jeter was honored by the Mariners before the start of the series, then helped jump start the Yankees. Jeter had a singles in his first two at-bats off Seattle starter Roenis Elias (5-5), then greeted reliever Dominic Leone with a two-run single in the fourth that gave the Yankees a 6-1 lead. Jeter finished the series with seven hits. Jacoby Ellsbury hit a two-run homer in the first inning to extend his hitting streak to 16 games and gave starter Chase Whitley (2-0) an early lead.

Annie’s Mailbox By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar

Should Have Listened Dear Annie: I am in my mid-20s and have been with my husband for seven years. Last year, while I was attending school and working, my husband started an affair. I also discovered information about his cheating dating back three years. I have found texts, social media messages and even a secret phone. My husband doesn’t know that I am aware of his affair. We have a toddler, and I don’t know what to do. I cannot believe the man I love has been unfaithful for so long and I just found out about it. I am seriously contemplating divorce, but I feel as if there is more to it. I think my husband may be a sex addict. This is how his father treated his mother for years, and maybe it’s all he knows. I want to get him the help he needs, but I’m not sure how to handle the situation. -- A Nurse in Need Dear Nurse: This must be a terrible time for you, but you are making an awful lot of excuses for your husband’s behavior. You need to tell him what you know and ask him to go with you for counseling. If he is a sex addict, he can get help. But if he refuses to do the necessary work to repair your marriage, you will have some tough decisions to make. Please get counseling on your own so you can do what is best for you and your child. Dear Annie: I really like my mother-in-law, but she has terrible taste and insists on buying me clothes. For my birthday last year, she gave me a blouse that looked like it came from a rummage sale, even though it still had the sales slip attached. To make her happy, I tried it on, and she squealed with delight. I thought it was hideous. I don’t want to hurt her feelings, but I cannot possibly wear this blouse. However, I’d feel terrible if I took it back to the store and she found out. My husband says to just stick the blouse in the closet and forget about it, but what if she asks me to wear it? What should I do? -- Trying To Be a Sweet DIL Dear Trying: It’s perfectly OK to thank your mother-in-law sweetly for the blouse and then return it. She is unlikely to find out. If she later asks you to wear it, you can say that it wasn’t exactly your taste and you picked out something that matched your wardrobe better. But it would be a true kindness to ask her to accompany you the next time you go shopping. Tell her it’s a “girl bonding” experience. Go out for lunch. Let her see the types of things that attract your attention. Ask her opinion. Help her pick out something you think looks good on her. This is how you get to know each other. Dear Annie: I read with interest the letter from “Upset Dad,” whose 14-year-old son wasn’t getting enough playing time on his basketball team. As a longtime coach, I wanted to give some input. Rightly or wrongly, the goal of school teams and coaches is to win the game without worrying about playing time. Parents should probably know this, but many don’t. (Practice and scrimmages are a different story.) Parents are generally very poor evaluators of their child’s talent. I would suspect this child is less skilled than the other players on the squad. My advice would be to talk respectfully to the coach to find out what your child could be working on to get more playing time. You will learn a lot about the coach’s mindset. Also, talk to your son about playing on a local church or other youth team. -- Been on Both Sides Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Cool Cars for Hot Days Dear Heloise: My car gets so hot in the summer. Do you have any hints on how to COOL DOWN A CAR QUICKLY? -- Jessie in Alabama Who doesn’t hate getting into a hot car? As soon as you get in the car, roll down the windows. Then turn the AC on high. You need to get the air moving to get all the hot air out. You also can open and close the door quickly to create airflow. This should help cool the car quickly. When you live in the South and have many days over 100 degrees, the following hints can help make sure that your car doesn’t get that hot. First, when parking, try to park in the shade as much as possible. Use a sun shade to block the sun’s rays and keep the dash and steering wheel cooler. You also can crack the windows slightly, if you feel comfortable doing so. Hope this helps you stay cool this summer! -- Heloise TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: Whenever I go on a trip, I pack an empty shoe box in my suitcase. This leaves room for souvenirs or other things I might buy. It also can be used to protect breakables. On one trip, the insole of my shoe wore out, and some of the nails were poking through, so I traced my foot on the cardboard of the shoebox, cut it out and slipped it into my shoe. It worked fine for the rest of the trip. I’m sure your readers can think of even more things to use a shoe box for. -- Shoshana S., via email What a great hint! Readers, what do you think? What other uses can you come up with for an old shoe box? -- Heloise

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHH Be more forthright and direct in your dealings with someone at a distance. You could be overwhelmed by the sense of pressure you feel. Forget about second-guessing what others are thinking; follow through on what is right for you. Tonight: In the limelight. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You might want to approach a situation in a novel way. What will become clear is that your path prior to this moment has been unsuccessful. Detach. Hold a light to the problem. Study your options and test them out. Tonight: Where great music is played. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH A lot of people could be acting in odd ways. Perhaps you are more off base than you realize. Let bygones be bygones, and open up more to a partner or trusted loved one. Get this person’s perspective. Tonight: Don’t try to fight the inevitable. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH You might see life from a new perspective. How you handle a personal matter could be subject to change because of recent events. Listen carefully to feedback. You will find a better way to move this issue along. Tonight: So many friends, so many possibilities. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Your ideas this morning could interfere with set plans. Go with the flow. Later today you might be thinking that it is too late to begin a new project or too late to finish one. Consider taking off early. Tonight: Walk to your favorite haunt or head to the gym. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Motivating yourself could take a lot of effort. A child or loved one might appear with a wonderful suggestion. Note how quickly your tune changes. Use the remainder of the day for more pleasurable pursuits, and set the stage for a fun few days. Tonight: TGIF calls. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You could be taken aback by what you hear. Whether it is gossip or fact might be irrelevant. Understand that you have an innate quality of openness that makes people feel that they can share with you. Finish up your errands quickly. Tonight: Happiest at home. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH You would be wise to balance your checkbook before the end of the day. You might be making a major purchase or heading into a period of not wanting to worry about your budget. Be realistic, and you will have a great time. Tonight: Meet up with some friends. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You’ll feel empowered in the morning. An awkward but necessary discussion could occur with a partner who is out of sorts. Spending could evolve to become a crucial issue. You might not like what you hear, but you’ll see the other party’s perspective. Tonight: Your treat. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Honor your feelings. You might not want to act on them immediately, but be careful not to disregard them, either. Your ability to float past problems could emerge. Your view might change, but your emotions will remain the same. Tonight: Let the party begin. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You might want to see a loved one in a new light, but you could have a difficult time letting your guard down. Detach, and pretend that you don’t know this person. As a result, you will gain a more positive outlook. Tonight: Skip out early. TGIF! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Respond to demands, even if you question your ability to meet them. In the evening, a meeting will open up others to a discussion. Note that you’ll have more support than you originally might have thought. Learn what others
