Gorman lobbies council for new senior center By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – Council On Aging Executive Director Tina Gorman spoke to the City Council members Thursday night to explain what services the agencies provides to the city’s 8,000 senior citizens and how the delivery of those services will be enhanced when a new senior center is constructed. Mayor Daniel M. Knapik submitted a $7. 5 million bond request to the City Council to finance the construction of a new 20,000-square-foot facility on Noble Street, replacing the current 5,000-square-foot Main Street center. The city received 10 bids for the senior center construction project which included a base bid and “alternatives” included as add-ons to the base bid. The contract was structured with the lower cost options to ensure that the construction cost would fall below $7 million. The alternatives replace less expensive materials with better material, such as replacing concrete curbing with granite. The apparent low bid was submitted by Forish Construction of Mainline Drive with a base price of $6,184,541 and a combined price of $6,324,625 for the construction and six alternates. The Purchasing Department completed the vetting process of the contract submissions Friday. Purchasing Director Tammy Tefft said this morning that the Forish bid is the apparent low “responsible and eligible” bidder. “Forish will be notified, contingent upon approval of the bond, that they are the general contractor,” Tefft said. “But I can’t award the contract until the second reading (and final approval) of the bond order by the City Council.” Typically the actual construction is financed through bond anticipation notes (BANs) and the bond actually sold following competition of the project when the exact dollar amount is known.
Gorman said that the original push to construct a new senior center was initiated in 1996 by senior citizens themselves in letters to then Mayor Richard K. Sullivan Jr., City Council members and the Community Development Department. The bond financing for the center construction was estimated in a 2009 five-year capital planning package at between $6 and $7 million and given an assessment as a high priority project. The $7.5 million bond before the City Council contains an 8 percent contingency, about $500,000, See Senior Center, Page 3

Fundraiser to be held for abandoned cats By Peter Francis Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The Westfield Homeless Cat Project will be holding a tag sale later this month to pay for the healthcare of the felines currently in their care. Following the discovery of dozens of cats, malnourished and ill, in Southwick earlier this month, Project Director Denise Sinico said the event will be held from Thursday May 29 to Saturday May 31 at 1124 East Mountain Road from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. “We’re looking for donations of tagsalable items and volunteers,” said Sinico. “Normally our tag sales raise around two grand, but we’re hoping to raise a little bit more than that.” Sinico said that the project usually runs between two and four tag sales a year.
“If we have a specific cat or a big surgery we have to do, or a special situation, we’ll run a tag sale to raise money,” she said. “In the beginning, thats how we raised money. I cleaned up my house, got a bunch of friends to donate stuff, had a tag sale and raised $2,000.” Sinico said she put the money raised by that initial sale toward fixing up a shed in her backyard for the project. “It’s kind of our thing. Everybody loves our tag sales, because we have so many nice things that people donate,” she said. “People are always very kind and good to us, so we always have a lot of good items.” That shed which was restored by the first tag sale is now currently about halffull of items for this upcoming sale, but Sinico believes that, now that spring has arrived, people will be looking to clean out
their homes and donate. The need for an influx of funding is greater now than ever before, as as the recent discovery of a large litter of cats which had been dumped in Southwick has swelled the WHCP ranks to over 30 animals, and Sinico said they are proving difficult to care for. “We’re still struggling with the cats. We’re having to forcefeed some of them, give them appetite stimulants because some of them went way too long without food,” she said. “I have about 15 cats in foster homes, with a few more cats that have been seen out there that we’ve been trying to get. We have well over 30 cats (here).” “We haven’t even begun testing them for diseases,” Sinico said. “When a cat goes without eating, their liver starts to
fail, so I hope that isn’t happening to any of them.” “I’m actually boiling chicken legs and feeding them that,” she said. “I went out and got them goat’s milk. We’re trying everything to get them to eat.” Sinico said that the search for who dumped these cats is still ongoing but that they’re getting closer to uncovering the responsible parties. “I have a friend who is a photographer, and she’s going to take some pictures of the cats, which we’re going to post to our Facebook page,” she said. “Our hope is that someone will come forward and say ‘I know who owned these cats.’” Anyone looking to donate to or volunteer to help with the tag sale can contact Denise Sinico via email at denisesinico@ hotmail.com.

Tail of the donkey sculpture stolen in Santa Fe SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Someone stole the tail off the donkey. The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (http://goo.gl/4hhYrJ) the metal sculpture of a burro that stands at one end of Santa Fe’ Burro Alley was recently vandalized and its tail was ripped off. Now, the city may have to spend around $3,000 to replace the tail on one of the most photographed pieces of public art in downtown Santa Fe. So far, police have no clues on any possible tail bandits and is offering a $1,000 reward. The city also has no plans to remove the sculpture. Officials say the city may pay an artist to fix it. The sculpture by artist Charles Southard, part of the city’s collection of about 75 pieces of public art, was commissioned in 1988. It’s valued at $12,500.

n May 19, 1864, American author Nathaniel Hawthorne, 59, died in Plymouth, New Hampshire.
On this date: In 1536, Anne Boleyn, the second wife of England’s King Henry VIII, was beheaded after being convicted of adultery. In 1780, a mysterious darkness enveloped much of New England and part of Canada in the early afternoon. In 1913, California Gov. Hiram Johnson signed the WebbHartley Law prohibiting “aliens ineligible to citizenship” from owning farm land, a measure targeting Asian immigrants, particularly Japanese. In 1921, Congress passed, and President Warren G. Harding signed, the Emergency Quota Act, which established national quotas for immigrants. In 1935, T.E. Lawrence, also known as “Lawrence of Arabia,” died in Dorset, England, six days after being injured in a motorcycle crash. In 1943, in his second wartime address to the U.S. Congress, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill pledged his country’s full support in the fight against Japan. That same day, top U.S. and British officials meeting in Washington reached agreement on May 1, 1944 as the date for the D-Day invasion of France (the operation ended up being launched more than a month later).
In 1954, American composer Charles Ives, 79, died in New York. In 1962, actress Marilyn Monroe sang “Happy Birthday to You” to President John F. Kennedy during a Democratic fundraiser at New York’s Madison Square Garden. In 1964, the State Department disclosed that 40 hidden microphones had been found in the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. In 1973, Secretariat won the Preakness Stakes, the second of its Triple Crown victories. In 1981, five British soldiers were killed by an Irish Republican Army landmine in County Armagh, Northern Ireland. In 1994, former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis died in New York at age 64.

Senior Center Continued from Page 1 money which would not be used except to address unanticipated problems during construction. “As you consider this bond request, let me be very clear about who we are and what we do,” Gorman said. “We serve as the city’s social service agency for its 8,000 older adults. Often the Council On Aging is the initial access point for information and referral by the city’s seniors and their family members. If we cannot meet all of the programmatic or service needs of the client, we work in collaboration with other community, state, and federal agencies.” “Unlike other social service agencies,” she said. “the Council On Aging does not maintain a waiting list. We assist older adults and their families to the best of our ability regardless of whether they have limited income or a generous pension. We pick up the pieces when other agencies limit access to services because of stringent guidelines.” “The Senior Center is not a recreation center,” Gorman said. “Do we offer recreational programming? Yes we do. We also offer educational programming, benefits counseling, wellness checks, support groups, medical equipment loans, tax preparation assistance, medical transportation, companionship services, telephone reassurance, information and referrals, brown bag food distribution, and crisis management. And the new Senior Center will also house Veterans Affairs so that our two departments can collaborate, maximizing resources for our mutual clients, from across the hall instead five blocks away in different buildings. “Last fiscal year, we provided services to 2,000 older adults living in the city,” she said. “On the one hand, that is just 25 percent of Westfield’s seniors. We could do so much more with accessible rooms, private office space, and adequate parking. On the other hand, the fact that we were able to meet the diverse needs of 2,000 seniors is nothing short of miraculous.” “In the coming weeks, members of various City Council subcommittees will recommend the fate of this 7.5 million dollar bond request,” she said. “As you do so, rest assured that the new Senior Center Building Committee has done its due diligence. We have visited new senior centers across the Commonwealth, sought input from other cities and towns who have gone through this process, and weighed initial cost factors against the expenses of maintenance and upkeep. We have considered the unique needs of the population who will be utilizing the building, the neighborhood in which the building will be built, as well as parking, safety, accessibility, and cost factors.” The council members voted to refer the $7.5 million bond request to the Finance Committee for further review. The Finance Committee is meeting Thursday to discuss the bond request and other city financial matters.
Woman seeks to expand rooster rescue mission By SCOTT STAFFORD The Berkshire Eagle SPRINGFIELD (AP) — They’re kept in crowded cages from birth. By the time they’re 2 years old, prospective cockfighters are either dead or fighting for their lives with sharp blades strapped to their legs. They don’t live through many fights. If they survive but are injured, they are killed and taken out with the trash. Rachael Gordon is working to change all that, by rehabilitating the victims of criminal cockfighting rings one rooster at a time. Gordon, 22, founded Morning’s Song Rooster Rescue in 2011 on a farm in the Berkshire hills, where she is currently rehabilitating about 120 roosters, hens and chicks. But she needs more room, so she can save more lives. Cockfighting rings throughout the world kill millions of roosters annually. Cockfighting is illegal in all 50 states, and U.S. cockfighting organizers are arrested periodically, resulting in the seizure of thousands of birds. There are very few places that can take the victims of cockfighting for rehabilitation, and those that do can only take a few. “Less than 2 percent of the cockfighters that are removed are adopted,” Gordon said. “The rest are euthanized and disposed of.” When Gordon gets a line on a major bust of a cockfighting ring, and she has room, she contacts the arresting authorities and makes arrangements to bring some of the injured to Morning’s Song. “They come here for life,” she said. According to John Goodwin, director of animal cruelty policy for the Humane Society of the United States, nearly 7,000 chickens were seized in raids on cockfighting operations in 2013. He said that while it is illegal in all 50 states, it is a felony in only 41 states. In the other nine, such as Ohio, Alabama and Kentucky, which he described as the national capital of cockfighting rings, cockfighting violations are misdemeanor crimes, punish-
able by fines only. “The weak laws in those states serve as magnets that draw these criminals to their communities,” Goodwin said. Although cockfighting proponents maintain that cockfighting is a cultural heritage for some and harmless fun, Goodwin notes that any time an animal is put in pain, the reasons for it need to be examined. “Roosters are made to suffer horrible injuries and slow death just so people can gamble on them,” he said. “The injuries afflicted on these birds is excessive — they feel the pain. There is no debating the fact that this is animal cruelty. There is no socially redeemable value to cockfighting whatsoever.” Goodwin noted that when he is on the scene of a raid on a cockfighting pit, there is frequently a “dead pile,” which is a pile of roosters that lost their fights and their owners either broke their necks or just left the injured birds on the pile to die of their injuries. Some survive for days before succumbing. He was pleased to hear that someone was working to rehabilitate injured and victimized birds rescued from cockfighting rings. “I’m excited to see someone stepping up to help these roosters,” Goodwin said. “It’s sorely needed. I hope her operation is successful.” Gordon said she finances her operation by working odd jobs around the community. “I save every penny for the roosters,” she said. As a part of a senior thesis at Hampshire College in 2012-13, Gordon designed a therapy program for the former combatants that allows them to return to their natural behaviors. “There’s nobody else out there doing this,” she said. “And it’s a group targeted for violence and death that is in extreme need — chickens are highly intelligent and underappreciated.” With the need for more space, Morning’s Song is starting up a fundraising campaign to finance the construction of another aviary for rehabilitating fighters. The problem is, the sanctuary’s

location is not publicized, because cockfighting rings are criminal organizations and frequently traffic in illegal guns and drugs. “Donations are rare — mostly because we are so private,” Gordon said. Gordon has just begun a crowdfunding campaign at Indiegogo.com, so kindred spirits can aid in her mission. The campaign to raise $60,000 to double the capacity at Morning’s Song is live and will end at midnight on June 22. The planned aviary, at 1,200 square feet, will be able to house 120 chickens and aid in the process of recuperating the former fighters. Rehabilitating roosters is difficult, Gordon said, but no matter what, chickens want to be chickens. “Cockfighters are aggressive because they’re abused, they’re not violent by nature,” Gordon said. From birth, cockfighting trainers teach young roosters to be aggressive by putting them into a cage with a cockfighter, and they either learn to fight to survive or die in training. At 2 years old, if showing enough prowess, the rooster’s comb and wattles are removed, and he is sold into the cockfighting ring. His lifespan is short after that. Maybe two or three fights for most cockfighters. “They don’t make it through many fights, and if injured, the owner kills them because they’re useless,” Gordon said. Seized birds are frequently kept by officials as evidence. Once released, if there is a rescue operation willing to take them, they can be saved. If not, they are euthanized. “The chickens are kept in horrific conditions (by cockfighting rings), and injuries and diseases make many of them unadoptable,” Gordon said. “Ninety-eight percent of them are euthanized because nobody will take them.” Most people think cockfighting roosters are aggressive and violent, Gordon noted, “but that’s absolutely not the case. Cockfighters are actually easier and faster to rehabilitate than domesticated
roosters.” In the aviary in which the newly arrived chickens are kept, a number of roosters in single cages observe the rehabilitated roosters and chickens roaming around and socializing on the floor. When a rooster first arrives, Gordon explained, “that animal is expecting to be abused. But when they realize you’re not going to abuse them, the fear starts to dissipate.” In the rehabilitation process, cockfighters are given rehabilitated roosters to observe for new behavior training. Slowly they are reintroduced to a flock, first to observe flock behavior, then under a supervised, protected setting they are allowed to interact with the flock. “In all my time rehabilitating roosters, I have not found one that can’t be rehabilitated,” she said. The third stage in rehabilitation is full flock integration. “Phase three is where you live out your life as a happy, healthy chicken,” Gordon said. In February, the largest cockfighting raid in New York state’s history netted roughly 3,000 chickens. Many of them were already dead. During a Texas raid in March, 97 birds were seized and 17 people were arrested. An April raid in Florida resulted in 200 arrests and 50 birds confiscated. Some were dead. An April bust in the state of Washington came up with 200 birds. Just a few days ago in Ohio, 72 birds were found during a raid, and in South Carolina another 80 were recovered.

Bipartisan support for background checks By Katie Glueck Politico.com A majority of likely voters in swing congressional districts and states this year support stricter background checks on gun purchasers, and the support spans both parties, a new Politico poll finds. Seventy-nine percent of those surveyed would support tougher measures while 21 percent are opposed. Ninety percent of Democrats support stricter checks —as do 71 percent of Republicans and 77 percent of independents, the survey found. Three-quarters of the overall survey respondents said the issue was “important” in evaluating candidates in the midterm elections, including 68 percent of Republicans, 87 percent of Democrats and 71 percent of independents. A bipartisan background checks bill failed in the Senate last year. The poll, designed by SocialSphere and conducted by the research firm GfK, surveyed 867 likely voters between May 2 and 13, in places with highly competitive midterm contests. The poll, conducted with GfK’s online KnowledgePanel methodology has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.1 percentage points.
Generational divide over gay marriage, pot By Katie Glueck Politico Clear generational divides exist on the hot-button social issues of gay marriage and marijuana legalization, a new Politico poll of voters who will decide the most competitive House and Senate races finds. That split is starkest on the question of same-sex marriage, which is supported by 48 percent of those surveyed overall. But that number skyrockets to 61 percent among people between the ages of 18-34. Slightly more than half of those between ages 35 and 49 support gay marriage; the figure drops to 48 percent among those aged 50-64 and tapers off to 35 percent among those 65 and older. Overall, 52 percent of those surveyed oppose gay marriage. There is also a generational split on the question of legalizing marijuana for recreational purposes. Voters under the age of 65 are divided on the issue, with about half of each age group supporting legalization, and the other half opposing — indicating that the issue is far from settled, even among younger voters. But the number supporting legalization for recreational purposes plummets to 24 percent among those aged 65 and over. Overall, 43 percent support marijuana legalization for recreational purposes, while 56 percent are opposed. The poll, designed by SocialSphere and conducted by the research firm GfK, surveyed 867 likely voters between May 2 and 13, in places with highly competitive midterm contests. The poll, conducted with GfK’s online KnowledgePanel methodology, has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.1 percentage points.
How the poll was conducted
By Steven Shepard Politico.com The new Politico poll aims to gauge how the voters who are going to determine the partisan makeup of Congress feel about their leaders and the issues influencing their vote. So rather than conduct another national poll and draw inferences from voters across an increasingly sorted and gerrymandered country, we surveyed only those voters whose ballots really matter this year: those in states with competitive Senate elections and voters in competitive House districts. Partnering with SocialSphere Inc. of Cambridge, Massachusetts — which designed and directed the survey — Politico surveyed 867 likely voters in the states and districts with the most competitive Senate and House races, as ranked by the University of Virginia Center for Politics. Conducted May 2-13, the survey was administered on the web by GfK, using a sample from KnowledgePanel, a large, national, probability-based online-survey panel. Respondents completed the online survey in English and Spanish; the average completion time was 10 minutes. While the polls are completed online, KnowledgePanel’s sampling frame includes Americans living in households without Internet access. GfK sends mailers — in English and Spanish — to random addresses in the U.S. Postal Service’s database. Recruits can join the panel by mailing back a form, calling a toll-free phone number or visiting a website. GfK provides those who want to join the panel but don’t have Internet access with a computer and/or free Internet access. This sampling method addresses some criticisms of online polls — namely, that respondents are self-selecting. Unlike socalled opt-in panels — for which firms recruit members via pop-up ads or ads on websites and which anyone can join — See Poll, Page 5
DOT fines GM $35 million in recall probe By Kevin Robillard and Kathryn A. Wolfe Politico.com GM has agreed to a $35 million fine leveled by the Obama administration for its slowness to report an ignition switch problem affecting millions of cars, a defect that has been linked to at least 13 deaths. While the fine is the most allowed by law, Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx repeated the administration’s pleas Friday for Congress to increase the maximum fine in such cases almost tenfold, to $300 million. That will send “an even stronger message that delays will not be tolerated,” he said. “What we cannot tolerate, what we will never accept is a person or company that knows danger exists and says nothing,” Foxx said in a news conference at the Department of Transportation’s headquarters. “Literally, silence can kill.” “What GM did was break the law,” he added. “They failed to meet their public safety obligations. Today, they have admitted as much.” In addition to the fine, GM has agreed to pay civil penalties in the amount of $7,000 each day beginning April 4, 2014, until GM produces the results of its own internal investigation being conducted by Anton Valukas. The agreement sets the date the report is due as no later than June 30. GM CEO Mary Barra pledged that the automaker, which still faces questions about what it knew about the defect and when, will “emerge from this situation a stronger company.” “We have learned a great deal from this recall,” she said in a statement. “We will now focus on the goal of becoming an industry leader in safety.” Several Senate Democrats — including Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), who chairs the Senate Commerce subcommittee in charge of investigating the GM recall, panned the fine as inadequate. “I don’t believe the $35 million fine is nearly enough for misconduct of this magnitude. Congress must consider raising or eliminating the cap on civil penalties when automakers put lives at risk,” McCaskill said. “And I remain concerned that GM employees appear to have engaged in criminal behavior concealing this defect and I urge Secretary Foxx to use his authority to refer this matter to the DOJ for criminal prosecution if the evidence warrants it.” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), the chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee in charge of highway safety, called the penalty a “pittance” and a “powerful reminder of the need for legislative reform.” Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), who also sits on Commerce, called it a “parking ticket” for the powerful automaker. “The appropriate penalty would be many multiples of this number in light of the devastating injuries, death and damage caused by GM’s seriously defective cars,” Blumenthal said in a statement. Blumenthal also gave NHTSA a partial pass, saying the penalty shows it “acted as forcefully as possible, but its hands were tied.” He said he plans to introduce a bill that would remove the cap on NHTSA’s penalties entirely.
The fine comes amid several ongoing and concurrent probes into how the company handled the recall of about 2.6 million cars. Those probes, being conducted by the DOT, Justice Department and several congressional committees, are focusing on how much GM knew about the deadly switch problems and when, and whether the automaker purposefully withheld key information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to avoid a recall. Beyond the fines, the settlement announced Friday also includes a consent agreement requiring the company to make “wide-ranging internal changes.” As part of the agreement, GM will provide NHTSA with the full results of the company’s own internal investigation, help employees report safety concerns to management and take steps to maximize the number of vehicle owners who bring their cars in for repair. The consent agreement is “historic,” DOT said, because the provisions will be immediately enforceable in federal court if GM doesn’t live up to its commitments. “No excuse, process or organizational structure will be allowed to stand in the way of any company meeting their obligation to quickly find and fix safety issues in a vehicle,” said David Friedman, acting administrator of the NHTSA, in a statement. “It’s critical to the safety of the driving public that manufacturers promptly report and remedy safety-related defects that have the potential to lead to deaths or injuries on our nation’s highways.” Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.), the top Democrat on the subcommittee that’s leading the GM investigation for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said the agreement is a “sign of continued cooperation” between GM and federal regulators, but that she expects “more answers and better transparency about past actions and the ongoing recall efforts.” As part of the consent agreement, GM also agreed that it will produce all documents related to the way it tested and affirmed that having customers remove everything but the ignition key from their key ring is enough to mitigate the risk of triggering problems with the ignition that have resulted in deaths and crashes. Blumenthal in particular has relentlessly pressed GM and the Transportation Department to instead recommend that consumers simply not drive the cars until they are fixed — something both entities have so far declined to do. Separately, the DOT’s inspector general is conducting an audit into NHTSA’s practices, including a focus on the regulator’s decision not to pursue a recall based on the information it had at the time. Friday’s fine marks the second record related penalty leveled under the Obama administration, coming almost exactly two months after Toyota agreed to pay $1.2 billion to settle a criminal investigation into a probe of sudden unintended acceleration in several Toyota and Lexus models. In Toyota’s case, it agreed that it had misled and deceived consumers about safety issues related to sticking gas pedals and floor mats that jammed gas pedals.
Pols buying cocaine, having affairs? Yawn. By Katie Glueck Politico.com Voters are so desensitized to misbehaving politicians that they hardly bat an eyelid when they hear about congressional scandals involving drugs or affairs, a new POLITICO poll finds. Only 11 percent of those surveyed said they were “shocked” upon hearing “that a member of Congress was arrested for buying cocaine,” the poll found. Another 29 percent said they were “mildly surprised,” while 58 percent said they were “not much moved at all.” That question was a reference to former Florida Rep. Trey Radel, who resigned earlier this year after he was caught buying cocaine from an undercover federal agent. Those surveyed were even less surprised to hear that another member of Congress “was videotaped kissing a staff-person who was not his wife.” Only 4 percent said they were “shocked.” Eighteen percent were “mildly surprised,” but the vast majority — 77 percent — were “not much moved at all.” That question was prompted by Rep. Vance McAllister of Louisiana, who earned the nickname “the kissing congressman” after he was caught on video making out with a female aide. He has decided not to seek reelection. The poll, designed by SocialSphere and conducted by the research firm GfK, surveyed 867 likely voters between May 2 and 13, in places with highly competitive midterm contests.
The poll, conducted with GfK’s online KnowledgePanel methodology, has a margin of error of plus-or-minus 4.1 percentage points.

Bullets strike Springfield home; no one injured SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Police say bullets fired from the street came crashing through the window of a Springfield home and lodged into the exterior of the home, but there were no reports of injuries.

There was no word on arrests.

Judge: Marijuana licensing process can proceed By PHILIP MARCELO Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — A state judge has rejected efforts to temporarily halt Massachusetts’ process for licensing medical marijuana dispensaries. Suffolk Superior Court Judge Mary K. Ames denied requests by three potential medical marijuana providers to issue a preliminary injunction preventing the state from finalizing the licensing process until their cases are adjudicated, according to recent documents filed in the cases. The three companies — 1 Releaf Inc., Apex Compassion & Wellness Center and the Striar Center for Compassionate Care — had been among 100 applicants for a state dispensary license, but were not among the 20 chosen by the state Department of Public Health to earn a “provisional” license in January. At least two other companies — the Timothy Walsh Foundation and Prospect Lake Inc. — have also filed suit challenging the process, which the public health department hopes to complete this summer. Public Health Department spokesman David Kibbe said officials still are vetting the remaining 20 applicants, a process that includes background checks on anyone involved with the proposed dispensaries. Massachusetts’ medical marijuana law, which took effect in January 2013, allows for up to 35 state-licensed dispensaries authorized to grow and sell marijuana to qualified patients for the treatment of cancer, glaucoma, AIDS and other ailments. In her ruling, Ames said the three companies had not shown they would face irreparable harm if the state continued to vet the remaining applicants. Even if the state issues final approval to all 20 provisional license holders before the cases are decided, there will still be 15 more marijuana licenses the plaintiffs could seek under state law, Ames wrote. Jonathan Rutley, a lawyer representing the Apex Compassion & Wellness Center and the Striar Center for Compassionate Care, said this week that his clients will continue pursuing their lawsuits. He said they will push for the state to disclose the full, unredacted applications from companies seeking a dispensary license, as well as documents related to the scoring of applicants. In their separate lawsuits, the Timothy Walsh Foundation and Prospect Lake Inc. claim the process for scoring applications was arbitrary and flawed. Specifically, the Timothy Walsh Foundation questions the award of a provisional license in Plymouth County to Medical Marijuana of Massachusetts, Inc., a group backed by former Congressman William Delahunt that won three of the 20 total provisional licenses issued. Prospect Lake Inc., meanwhile, challenges the department’s decision not to award a provisional license to any of the initial applicants in Berkshire County. “We believe the best possible providers should be licensed to get up and running,” Michael Cutler, an attorney for the plaintiffs said this week. “We question — at least in the cases of Berkshire County and Plymouth County — whether that’s happened.”

Panel finalizes recommendations to ease abuse By PHILIP MARCELO Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — A state panel charged with finding ways to address Massachusetts’ drug abuse epidemic is set to finalize its recommendations for Gov. Deval Patrick this week. The 36-member Opiate Task Force, which includes mayors, state officials and health care providers, is charged with recommending how to spend $20 million designated to improve substance abuse treatment programs across the state. It meets Wednesday. Patrick issued an executive order in March declaring drug abuse a public health emergency. He also attempted to ban Zohydro, a powerful hydrocodone-based painkiller, and he expanded the availability of naloxone, a drug used to counter the effects of opioid overdose. Public Health Commissioner Cheryl Bartlett, who chairs the task force, says the panel’s recommendations will include
short- and long-term solutions covering a broad range of categories, from better prevention education to faster, more “real-time” data on overdoses. She declined to name specific recommendations but suggested that expanding use of the state’s Prescription Monitoring Program, an online database where a licensed prescriber or pharmacist can view a patient’s prescription history, would be among them. Joanne Peterson, founder of Learn to Cope, a support group for families dealing with drug addiction, said Massachusetts must invest more in affordable residential programs for people in the early stages of addiction recovery, such as those recently completing detoxification programs. She also suggested the state invest more in services for the growing number of female addicts. “It’s very easy to relapse in an environment with no structure. They need counseling and support,” Peterson said.
“We’ve been advocating for this stuff for years. We’re more hopeful now. The governor is taking the right steps.” State officials say the annual number of unintentional opiate overdoses has nearly doubled in recent years, from 338 in 2000 to 668 in 2012. They say preliminary data for 2013 suggests fatal overdoses are on track to meet or exceed 2012′s totals. Among the causes for the rise are an increase in pain medication prescriptions and more availability of cheap heroin, both in pure and adulterated versions, according to officials. State regulatory boards have already issued stricter requirements to doctors, dentists and pharmacists who prescribe and dispense Zohydro, which public health officials have said can be easily abused in its current form. The restrictions come after Patrick’s attempt to ban the drug outright was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge. Zogenix, the San

Temporary jobs on rise in today’s shifting economy By TOM RAUM Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — While the U.S. economy has improved since the Great Recession ended five years ago, part-time and “contract” workers are filling many of the new jobs. Contract workers made up less than half of one percent of all U.S. employment in the 1980s but now account for 2.3 percent. Economists predict contract workers will play a larger role in the years ahead. They are a diverse army of laborers, ranging from janitors, security officers, homecare and food service-workers to computer programmers, freelance photographers and illustrators. Many are involved in manufacturing. Many others are self-employed, working under contracts that lay out specific responsibilities and deadlines. Labor leaders and many economists worry. Contract workers have less job security and don’t contribute to the economy through spending as much as permanent, full-time workers. Nor do they have the same job protections. Few are union members. “It is not hugely clear that we’re coming into a tempworker, contract-worker, contingent-worker nation. But it’s something to keep an eye on,” said Heidi Shierholz, an economist with the labor-oriented
Economic Policy Institute. “There’s definitely been an increase in the share of those working part time.” Part-time and contract jobs in the past tended to rise during recessions and recede during recoveries. But maybe no longer: Part-time workers have accounted for more than 10 percent of U.S. job growth in the years since the recession officially ended in June 2009. Meanwhile, union membership has been sliding steadily since the mid-1980s. Businesses often hire contract workers or freelancers because it is less expensive than hiring full-time workers. “Workers increasingly serve businesses that do not officially ‘employ’ the worker — a distinction that hampers organizing, erodes labor standards and dilutes accountability,” said Catherine Ruckelshaus, general counsel for the National Employment Law Project, which advocates on behalf of low-wage workers. Many business leaders have a different take. “Some people don’t want to be a full-time employee. They want contract work,” said Bruce Josten, executive vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Still, Josten recognizes some of them “are hoping the contract work will ultimately lead them into a full-time position.”
A recent Federal Reserve study showed that nearly 7.5 million people who are working part time — contract workers included — would rather have full-time jobs. Jerry Jasinowski, who served as president of the National Association of Manufacturers for 14 years and later as president of the Manufacturing Institute, said despite criticism leveled against contract workers from some quarters, “I think on balance, they are a positive reflection of the extent to which production has become much more flexible, a reflection of hybrid operations. Some people don’t like it. But that’s neither here nor there. That’s where everybody’s moving.” Analysts suggest the increase in contract and “temp” jobs will likely accelerate as more baby boomers retire from their full-time jobs. Pressure from a company’s shareholders — often focused on short-term returns — can also lead businesses to lower labor costs by reclassifying a portion of their payroll as part-timers or spinning them off to a contracting agency. The online job site CareerBuilder.com, which specializes in “contract placement,” cites research showing that 42 percent of employers intend to hire temporary or
contract workers as part of their 2014 staffing strategy — a 14 percent increase over the past five years. The issue got the spotlight when President Barack Obama in February unilaterally upped the minimum wage for federal contractors and their employees from $7.25 to $10.10 an hour, fulfilling a top demand by liberal lawmakers and groups. The higher rates kick in Jan. 1.
SPRINGFIELD – NUVO Bank & Trust Company (“NUVO”) announced net income of $67,000, or $0.02 per basic and fully diluted shares for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, compared to $2,122,000, or $1.13 per basic and fully diluted shares for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. The Bank’s book value per share increased from $5.23 per share at December 31, 2013 to $5.27 per share at March 31, 2014. The $2,055,000 decrease in net income primarily reflects the fact that, in the first quarter of 2013, the Bank was able to fully utilize a deferred tax benefit of $2,057,000, which more than offset income before taxes of $65,000. In the first quarter of 2014, the Bank had income before taxes of $111,000 and no deferred tax benefit and a tax provision of $44,000. The per share results during the first quarter of 2014 reflect the impact of the issuance of 974,454 shares in a private offering that closed on April 30, 2013. Diluted per share results were also impacted by the fact that, in the private offering, we also issued 487,227 rights along with the shares of common stock. The $46,000 increase in pre-tax income reflects increases in net interest income and non-interest income of $241,000 and $31,000, respectively, which were partially offset by a $106,000 increase in the provision for loan losses and an increase of $120,000 in non-interest expense. The increase in the provision for loan losses primarily relates to a specific reserve within the allowance for loan losses for a possible loss on a loan placed on non-accrual during the first quarter of 2014. The loan placed on non-accrual was originated by another bank and a portion of that loan was purchased by NUVO. The increase in non-interest expense reflects increases in personnel expense due to new hires, merit and promotional increases; an increase in professional fees, primarily legal fees for corporate matters and loan related activity; increased director fees related to retainer and attendance fees compared to retainer fees only in 2013; and increased recruitment and temporary help due to the growth of activity. Total assets at March 31, 2014 were $145.0 million compared to $135.2 million at December 31, 2013, which is an increase of $9.8 million (7.3%). Cash and cash equivalents increased $1.8 million (27.2%) to $8.7 million at March 31, 2014, from $6.8 million at December 31, 2013. Total loans increased $8.2 million (7.0%) to $126.5 million at March 31, 2014, from $118.3 million at December 31, 2013. Deposits increased $9.8 million (8.4%) to $125.9 million at March 31, 2014, from $116.1 million at December 31, 2013. Stockholders’ equity increased $98,000 (0.7%) to $14.7 million at March 31, 2014 from $14.6 million at December 31, 2013. NUVO Bank & Trust Company (‘the Bank”), a Massachusetts chartered trust company, is a full-service, independent community bank headquartered in Springfield, Massachusetts. It received its charter on April 24, 2008 and opened the doors at its present location on November 1, 2008.

Boston Celtics owners invest in skateboard league BOSTON (AP) — There might not be many obvious similarities between high-tech electric car racing and some dude in a hoodie riding a skateboard. To Boston Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck and his fellow investors at Causeway Media Partners, it’s all about re-imagining the way you look at sports. “It’s a twist on an existing sport,” Grousbeck said this week after the group invested in Street League Skateboarding, a professional circuit for the growing but decidedly low-tech sport. “They’re reconfigured sports for the modern era.” A Celtics owner since 2002, Grousbeck and a dozen of his partners in the NBA franchise have raised about $100 million to invest in sports media and entertainment companies through Causeway Media Partners. Their first plunge was a stake in Formula E, an all-electric, Formula One-style racing circuit that has celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Richard Branson hoping to mine it for planet-saving technological breakthroughs. The follow-up is in another wheel sport. The fact that it’s low-tech is part of the attraction. “Skateboarding’s not a very expensive sport to pick up. It doesn’t require you be a part of a team,” said Causeway cofounder Mark Wan, who is also a part-owner in the Celtics and the San Francisco 49ers. “That’s one of the goals of street league is to make this really accessible.” Like Formula E, Street League Skateboarding is a new take on an established sport — giving it both a track record and potential for growth. Grousbeck compared it to the way ultimate fighting re-imagined boxing, or new formats that took cricket matches from five days to 2 or 3 hours. (Causeway is not an investor in either.)
Palma doubles at ECAC championships TROY, N.Y. – Westfield State University sophomore Naloti Palma (Westboro, Mass.) placed second in the shot put and fourth in the discus at the ECAC Division III outdoor track and field championships May 15-16 at RPI. Palma heaved the shot put 44-9. Widener (Pa.) University’s Erica Szpynda took top honors with a toss of 46-7. Palma had her second best ever throw in the discus, finishing fourth with a 139-9 mark (42.68 meters). She displayed consistency by hurling the discus 42-plus meters on each of her three throws in the final round. Ramapo’s Taylor Furman won the ECAC discus title with a throw of 143-7. Palma shattered the school record last week by hurling the discus 145-2 in winning

Annie’s Mailbox By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar
What can I do? Dear Annie: I am in my second marriage. My two adult children were pre-teens when I married “Lenny” 15 years ago. The problem is, Lenny has a bad temper and little patience. He flies off the handle and gets upset easily. It makes life difficult. He doesn’t frighten me, and I can easily tell him to stop when these episodes begin, but they upset the whole family. Now that my kids are grown, they have told me that they always resented my “putting them in this position” by marrying Lenny. They are respectful to him, but have no interest in sitting down and having a conversation with him. When the kids are in the house, I often run around trying to keep everyone calm. It makes me nervous. Lenny tried counseling, but not for very long. He said it wasn’t helping. How do I keep a relationship with my kids? I don’t want to be divorced a second time. While I am sure that Lenny would never harm me, I’m not certain how he would react if I asked him to leave. He does have some good qualities, but it’s hard to remember them when he has these outbursts. Please help me keep my kids in my life. What can I do? -- Helpless Dear Helpless: You can call the Domestic Violence Hotline (thehotline.org) at 1-800-799-SAFE and ask about protected ways to leave your environment. You also can ask for help in discussing ways to get Lenny to return for counseling in anger management. If you decide to stay with Lenny, you can arrange to see your children outside of your home, having a relationship that doesn’t include Lenny. Do not push them to be with him. Dear Annie: “Nude Bodies Are OK” says nude art is not porn, but you cannot always control what happens when viewing nudity. I have counseled people who were addicted to pornography, and it robs men of their confidence and self-respect. Some people become addicted after a single viewing. I have seen couples divorce and children separated from parents because one of them couldn’t stop using porn. Suggesting that porn is OK for any length of time and in any form encourages people to try doing what their own good sense warns them is dangerous. Women should not be encouraged to think that a husband who uses porn is “safe” from affairs and that it will somehow strengthen the marriage in the bedroom. This is ludicrous. If he is looking at pornography, he is bonding with the pornography. Brain chemistry is potent, and it is both difficult and unlikely that people will overcome the addiction permanently once it grabs them. -- Be a Man Dear Man: There is a difference between nudity and pornography. No normal person would become addicted to porn after viewing Michelangelo’s David. But anything that debases women, airbrushes body flaws, shows sex acts, etc., is indeed porn and can be surprisingly addictive. Even a little can destroy marriages and lives. Dear Annie: Last Christmas, my well-to-do in-laws told us they were going to donate to a charity in honor of us instead of gift giving. While this was fine at first, we didn’t get to choose our charity, and after giving it more thought, we told them to forget about it for us. Giving to a charity is one thing, but giving to a charity while taking the write-off for themselves left us feeling like the only ones who benefited were my in-laws (for their tax deduction) and the charity they held dear. “Grinch in Arizona” must be related to the Frugal McDougals of New York. -- Not Taking It with Us Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE Signs of Confusion Dear Readers: Here is this week’s SOUND OFF, about signs being left up: “I dislike when people have garage sales and leave the signs up for days or weeks after the sale has already passed. I understand putting them up a few days before, but it can get confusing if there is no date on the sign and the sale has passed. It also makes the neighborhood look bad when signs are left up forever. If you are going to put up signs, for whatever reason, please take them down as soon as they are no longer needed.” -- Helen K. in Alabama -- Heloise FAST FACTS Dear Readers: Other uses for old sheets: * As a dropcloth when painting. * Give to kids to make a fort. * On a garage floor when repotting plants. * To cover plants in winter. * As a tablecloth or window coverings. -- Heloise

YOUR HOROSCOPE Contract Bridge By Jaqueline Bigar
DOG EAT DOUG
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Monday, May 19, 2014: This year you will be more in touch with your feelings. You will be an effective communicator, and you’ll also be more expressive when you feel upset or angry. If you are single, potential suitors might notice how you switch back and forth between being conservative and being quirky. You need to relate to someone who is not judgmental. Come summertime, you could meet Mr. or Ms. Right. If you are attached, the two of you are more likely to take up a new hobby together. Your mutual interest will help you both open up more. AQUARIUS can be as stubborn as you are, but your views are very different. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ZACK HILL John Deering and John Newcombe
ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Your calmness will transform quickly into strong action. A partner seems to be a bit difficult at the moment. You might be unusually irritable in the evening as well. Know that this, too, will pass. Tonight: Be careful, as you could be accident-prone. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Take a leap of faith, and be willing to take risks in order to get past a situation. You could be sorry that you decided to act a certain way with an associate or a loved one. Put in the extra effort that could help this person to relax and ease up. Tonight: All smiles. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You might be more interested in what someone else has to say about what seems like a never-ending, difficult work or personal situation. Your creativity is likely to emerge when dealing with someone at a distance. Tonight: Aren’t we feeling frisky? CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Zero in on what is important. Your creativity could be stunted by someone else’s gesture and/or idea. Help this person add the flourishing touches on his or her concept. You might be driven by your need to get things accomplished. Tonight: Could go till the wee hours. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH What you are thinking is more logical than you might realize. Be willing to take a stand. You might want to start interacting with a friend who demonstrates a similar interest. A discussion will become very lively, except around a family member. Tonight: Return calls. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHHH Expenses could go overboard at the drop of a hat. You might regret letting your impulsiveness take the lead. A partner or friend understands much more than you think he or she does. You might not be communicating as well as you think you are. Tonight: Pace yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You are full of energy and dynamic ideas. Deal with one person at a time. A partner finally might be a lot more easygoing than he or she has been in a while. Be careful -- a disagreement still could arise. Resist being combative; instead, go for a brief walk. Tonight: As you like it. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Know when to back down in order to get the best possible results from a situation. The less said, the better off you’ll be. You could feel awkward with others, and perhaps also with an associate. Try not to let your frustration get the best of you. Tonight: Where the action is. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Don’t stand on ceremony, just pick up the phone and start a conversation. You might be delighted by how happy the other party is to hear from you. Several people might challenge you in a meeting, but make it your pleasure to be responsive. Tonight: Out and about. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You might want to indulge a boss. Your high energy and distinctive ideas will come out, no matter who runs into you. You’ll want to be aware of the costs of your actions. Someone could become angrier than he or she has been in a while. Tonight: Off to the gym. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You tend to flourish, no matter what you’re doing. Do research, or call someone you consider an expert. Get as much feedback as possible. Push to get a better grasp of a situation, and
know that you will make the right decision. Tonight: Happiest among crowds. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You might need to be more detached and not personalize a situation so much. Read between the lines when you speak with a friend. You could be waffling about what you are seeing. Don’t allow others to add fuel to any fires that might be smoldering. Tonight: Togetherness works.

Hyper • Local
When it comes to 21st century multimedia platforms, “hyper local” is a term you hear a lot. It’s not a new idea. 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 newspapers 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. But, day in and day out, The Westfield News provides consistant coverage of the stories you need to know about, that are important to your city, town, neighborhood and home.
