Senior Center Committee seeks $7.5M bond By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The Senior Center Building Committee voted Friday afternoon to request Mayor Daniel M. Knapik to submit a $7.5 million bond to the City Council Thursday to fund the construction of a new senior center. The Committee’s vote came immediately after bids for the general contractor were opened by Purchasing Director Tammy Tefft. The contractors submitted packets for the construction project and six alternate construction and equipment options. 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 alternated. The other bids were submitted by Marois Construction Inc. of South Hadley ($6,427,000); Sage Engineering Associates of Westfield ($6,672,000); Eastern General Contractors of Springfield ($6,864,000); Enfield Builders Inc., of Enfield, Connecticut ($6,468,000); RAC Builders Inc. of Agawam ($7,800,000); D.A. Sullivan & Sons Inc., of Northampton ($6,298,000); Orlando Annulli & Sons of Manchester, Connecticut ($6,715,322; and WJ Mountford Company of South Windsor, Connecticut ($6,825,000). The committee did not vote to select a general contractor. Tefft said that the contract submissions still have to be vetted to ensure they comply with the bid specifications and state bidding regulations before the committee can award the contract. Tim Singleton of Diversified Project Management of East Hartford, Conn., the city’s Owners Project Manager, said that the $7.5 million bond request includes a $539,000 construction budget contingency, about 8 percent of the low combined bid. Tefft requested the committee to vote to approve all six alternates advertised with the construction contract. The contract was structured with the lower cost options to endure that the bids would fall below $7 million. The alternates replace less expensive materials with better material, such as granite curbing instead of concrete. Another alternate, #6, is the installation of an emergency generator so the senior center could be used as an emergency shelter in the case of a natural disaster, such as the 2011 Halloween

Clerk expects low turnout at election By Hope E. Tremblay Staff Writer SOUTHWICK – Although Southwick Town Clerk Michelle Hill is always hopeful every eligible resident will exercise their right to vote, she is not very optimistic this time around. “I always hope for 100-percent but it’s an uncontested ballot except for one race, so in reality, there will probably be very low turnout,” said Hill. Southwick’s registered voters can weigh-in on Election Day this Tuesday, May 13. The one contested race is for the Park and Recreation Commission one-year seat. The post was made available by the resignation of Li-Ling Waller and the person elected will serve the remainder of her term – one year. Running for the seat are residents Jocelyn S. Linnekin and Jeanne Reed Waldron. Parks and Rec Commissioners Susan E. Grabowski and Kelly Magni are also seeking re-election for three-year terms. Incumbent Russell S. Fox is also hoping to retain his seat on
the Board of Selectmen, as are School Committee members Jeffrey T. Houle and Jean Marie McGivney-Burelle. Both incumbents are seeking another threeyear term. David R. Recoulle is running for a three-year term as an assessor, and Roy M. Benson is running for a three-year set on the Cemetery Commission. Gene H. Theroux is seeking election to the Dickinson School Trust, which is a three-year term. Water Commissioner Luther F. Hosmer is hoping to be re-elected to a three-year term on the Water Commission, while fellow commissioner David Brian Meczywor is running for re-election to a one-year seat. Library Trustee Michael J. McMahon and Nancy M. Zdun are running for three-year terms, and David Howard Sutton is running for a five-year term on the Planning Board. That seat was vacated by Selectman Joseph Deedy upon election and was filled by Terence Welch, who will See Election, Page 7

City Council to review HR post By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The City Council’s Personnel Action Committee will review the job description of the city’s personnel director post, ending the exploration of a combined City Hall and School Department human resource department. Mayor Daniel M. Knapik said Thursday that the duties of the two offices are distinctly different and require disparate skill sets because of special review of employees, contractors, as well as volunteers, who deal directly with schoolchildren, a vetting process required by the state Board of Higher Education. The City Council and the School Committee began to look at combining municipal and school office and administrative functions as a means of curtailing the increasing costs of maintaining separate staff who often perform similar duties. The city’s Law Department is currently providing the School Department with legal services, especially in the area of labor negotiation, eliminating the need for the School Department to hire law firms. The School Department’s payroll staff is currently in City Hall and at some future time, Knapik said, will be rolled into the municipal payroll office. Human Resource offices were also a candidate for the consolidation, where the School Department HR supervisor would be the head of the unified department and the city hall HR supervisor serve as the assistant director. The current City Hall HR supervisor, Karin Decker, holds the post as Assistant Personnel
Director. “We’ve explored the idea of a joint HR department, but it became unworkable,” Knapik said. “When you look at the complexity of the School Department certification process, a joint department became unworkable. The skill sets are very different.” Knapik said that the payroll function will eventually become a unified department. “We will have a joint payroll office and will need to add a payroll supervisor to that department, something that may happen in December,” Knapik said. City officials, in particular the City Council, are examining the possibility of a unified building and grounds maintenance department because of the huge investment, about $50 million, to repair buildings and grounds, as well as energy efficiency upgrade to city and school buildings. The City Council is concerned that that investment may not be properly maintained in the future and deferred maintenance, which led to deterioration of the city and school buildings, may be avoided by creation of a dedicated central Maintenance Department. The city has a $386,000 annual contract with Siemens to maintain those new energy systems, Knapik said, a cost that could be reduced through creation of a new department and the additional of a new facilities director post who could also serve as the city’s owner project manager for new construction, further reducing the cost of capital projects.
By Peter Francis Staff Writer WESTFIELD – Westfield Mayor Daniel M. Knapik said earlier this week that he has spoken with the Commonwealth’s Secretary of Housing and Economic Development, Greg Bialecki, to see what the state’s interest is in putting a package together to save the former National Envelope in Westfield. “There was an interest there, so we went back and opened up a line of communication with National (Envelope),” Knapik said of the conversation. City Advancement Officer Joe Mitchell JOE MAYOR confirmed that, in MITCHELL DANIEL M. addition to speaking KNAPIK with Bialecki, city officials have been in contact with Mark Hiltwein, president of Cenveo, the company which bought out National Envelope. “Secretary Bialecki is interested in communicating with Cenveo to see what he can do to help keep the doors open here in Westfield,” said Mitchell. “They want to see what Cenveo’s needs are. The primary issue, as we understand it, has to do with the landlord and what the terms are with the lease.” Mitchell said that topics of discussion between Bialecki and Knapik included possible funding to “bridge rent or to help move equipment to another facility in western Mass.” “Cenveo is looking to lease or purchase 80,000 square feet somewhere in western Massachusetts where they are going to have a smaller manufacturing operation, with a couple of lines and their more modern equipment,” he said. “They want to employ 50 to 75 employees in manu See Plant, Page 3
Commission seeks to acquire land By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The Water Commission voted Tuesday night to initiate an eminent domain acquisition of more than 90 acres of land in Granville to protect the Granville Reservoir watershed. The board voted 3-0 to request that Mayor Daniel M. Knapik initiate the land taking through the City Council. Water Resource Department Engineer Charles Darling said the 91.8 acres of land was formerly an apple orchard and that the city has a state Executive Office of Environmental Affairs grant to purchase the property know as the Olsen orchard. The Olsen property has an assessed value of $500,000 with the EOEA grant funding half of that amount. The property is located along Old Westfield Road. “We have a grant, but it has a very tight timeline,” Darling said. “We have to demolish the buildings and the site cleanup has to be completed by the end of 2015 to qualify for the grant. “The contamination is pesticides used on the old apple orchard,” Darling said. “There is a high urgency to get this cleaned up.” Water Resource Superintendent Dave Billips said the property contains the head watershed of a brook that feeds the reservoir. “It has been identified as contaminated property,” Billips said. “The feeder stream (for Granville Reservoir) begins on this property.” Billips said the cost of the environmental remediation will be deducted from the assessed value of the property. Tighe & Bond performed the environmental assessment and developed the cost estimate for the remediation. Darling said the grant is an annual EOEA program intended to acquire land to further protect drinking water supplies. “We have had discussions with the land owner about this purchase, but then he backed out because he feels he can get more for the land from another party,” Darling said.

BOSTON (AP) — Perhaps the reason notoriously aggressive Boston drivers don’t use their turn signals is that no one’s ever put it in terms they understand. The Massachusetts Department of Transportation on Friday changed that by posting messages on electronic highway signs around the city that read: “Changing Lanes? Use Yah Blinkah.” “Blinkah” is how Bostonians pronounce
“blinker,” otherwise known as a turn signal. The signs are scheduled to stay up through the Mother’s Day on Sunday, which state officials say is one of the busiest traffic days of the year. Drivers who fail to use their “blinkah” when changing lanes on a Massachusetts highway are subject to a fine. Police across the state handed out almost 5,000 tickets for the offense last year.

Councilor Hoose: Ward 3 update Hi Neighbors, Reporting back to the homeowners on Franklin St. I have spoken with DPW Superintendent Jim Mulvenna regarding your sidewalk. He will be checking it out to see what can be done to correct that dangerous situation. As well, regarding lowering the gravel level on Congress Ct. Also, the flooding situation at the end of Allen St. And, we are looking into the flooding problem on Chestnuts St. And, I would like to thank our City Engineer Mark Cressotti, and his crew; Community Development: Peter Miller; and Jim Mulvenna for their time to personally check out these situations and to help me recommend corrective measures, as well as, the Mayor. Their staffs have been great in helping me on these projects even before they knew I was a City Councilor. Next, it is the dreaded BUDGET time. I would suggest that you check out the budgets being proposed on our City’s website, and talk with your city councilor about your concerns, after all that is why you hired us, and pay us. I have been involved in civic affairs for a great deal of my life, but this is my first year of dealing with a city budget so it will be a
learning experience for me. My thoughts: we need to find alternative ways and means to fund government. The cut or spend practices are obsolete. Originally, in 1800, most taxes came from Property Taxes for local and state budget funding, but back then 90 percent of Americans owned their own businesses, and their homes were also businesses. And, the Federal Government was funded by tariffs and excise taxes. But, back then, too, what did they have to spend it on? What has changed? 1900, the world population was 1 billon and ours (1914) was 100 million; and we lived till 45-55. Now the world is 7 billion, and ours is 300+ million, and we live to 65-75+. Today, as in 1900, invention has driven the costs up. Then, the car, electricity, the plane, and telephone, etc. and the need to retrofit buildings, and to create roads, airports, etc. So they created the Income Tax. WWII lead to a broad based income tax of 90 percent on income above $25,000 (most incomes were below this) to pay for the war and the cost of all the new inventions incorporated into our lives, and the Cold War, space program, transportation, and communications, etc. Luckily our taxes have gone down a lot. However, the
private sector costs that provides us with most of our government purchases have gone up, including fuel and health care. And, while we can blame the costs on bad policy making, a lot of what our taxes pay for are demands from our citizens and our businesses. Add to this that, as consumers we get a lot of costs passed on to us as well. Add new technologies costs, but we need them. No one wants to go back to the days when we held mom’s hand, filled her with opiates while she died a painful death from cancer. So what is the answer? It does not lay in the past in archaic dualistic thinking. So, while stuck with the current process for now, I want to start a project to seriously look at alternatives. I have friends on town and city councils in a number of cities and I want to get together with them to look for real, 21St century alternatives. Your thoughts….? Thank you, Brian Hoose ——— Disclaimer: The views expressed in this column are those of the author and not the staff, editor, or publisher of this publication. Brian Hoose

the plant rolls completely up to western Pennsylvania, they’ll never be able to meet supply. They already have seen an interruption in supply from the Worcester closing.” Knapik added that Cenveo is looking to maintain a presence in the general area. “Whether it’s Agawam, Westfield, West Springfield, it’s pretty much who can come up with a building and a price
point that fits,” he said. Mitchell stated that Cenveo is also looking in East Longmeadow and Chicopee as well. “We’re in the hunt, in the last three anyway,” said Mitchell of Westfield’s chances at retaining a facility. Knapik said the National Envelope saga provides a lesson for all candidates vying for statewide public office.
“I think that is a pretty good lesson for Steve Grossman and Charlie Baker, that the next battle is probably going to be for job retention,” he said. “We don’t want to lose any more manufacturing jobs, and if that is identified as a problem, we need to retool our economic package to address that.”
Billips said the concern is that any development on the land will destabilize the soil and could lead to an increase in the pesticides being carried into the feeder brook. “So this has urgency because of the contamination,” Commission Chairman Ron Cole asked prior to the board’s vote to take the property through eminent domain. “There is a high urgency to get this cleaned up to protect the Granville Reservoir water quality,” Darling said. “Under state law the City of Westfield can acquire land in Granville for water source protection.”

THE WESTFIELD NEWS
Here it is Friday May 9th and I find the Police Log for Monday and Tuesday in the paper. Would it be possible to have somewhat up to date information in the paper? Thank you. With a small reporting staff we do our best to cover as much news as possible and deliver it as quickly as we can. Some weeks we have news leads that need to be followed up on and that takes a priority over the emergency services logs. Good Morning PulseLine! I had pledged to submit a Positive Pulseline Post every day but as I went through my day I realized how difficult it would be to just post one positive comment about Westfield. Everywhere I looked there was good stuff happening. That said, I’m going to go with the WHS Bombers baseball win in Wilbraham yesterday. With their win they are now in the D1 playoffs. It took every member of that TEAM to make it happen just as it takes every member of the Westfield community to make a GREAT community. Keep the momentum going boys and keep the momentum going Westfield!!! PLEASE help the MSPCA find the person who dumped 25 plus cats in Southwick. They are friendly and starving. Some of them are pure bred Siamese and Snow Shoe Siamese. We need your help. A $1,000 REWARD has been set for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person/persons responsible for dumping these cats. The information we have thus far is: His name is Doug. He is a maintenance man who cleans out apartments/houses. Most recently he had been working at an apartment in Russell where the cats had been left!!!! Instead of doing the right thing and notifying the authorities; he opted to DUMP them in a lot in Southwick!!!! Doug drives a black, or dark bluel; SUV or S10 P/U with primer spots on it. He has been seen at the Elm St. Dunkin Donuts in Westfield. We believe he lives in Westfield, Russell or Southwick. If you know Doug, or see this vehicle, PLEASE, do the right thing and call Roy Sutton at the MSPCA 413-448-6046. THANK YOU for the help. This mayor is a pompous arrogant clown. His job offer was likely rescinded after the sign case and ethics charges came to light. I noticed that Mr. Francis didn’t ask him if it was true that he had been looking for, or offered, another job. I don’t know who his more delusional, Knapik or Bean. Knapik claims to have “legions of supporters” and Bean thinks he is qualified to be mayor. Someone should check the weed inventory at the police station. Knapik couldn’t get re-elected as dog-catcher which is rather funny since he’s the one that is unfairly terminating Mr. Frazer. Maybe the mayor’s legions of supporters can each kick in a few bucks to pay his legal bills! He broke the law intentionally. He should be paying the $93,000 - not the taxpayers. Are you kidding me? No coverage of the man-made global warming flood that swept across EMCC on Thursday?? Coverup, or swept under or just buried??? Lighten up, Francis.
Benghazi panel already faces partisan tension By Jake Sherman, Lauren French, and John Bresnahan Politico.com The House select committee investigating the deadly attacks in Benghazi will begin shortly and the only lingering question is whether Democrats will participate. The lead up to the panel’s work has already devolved into a back and forth between Speaker John Boehner and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi over how the committee will operate. Pelosi wants Democrats to have a say in subpoenas, access to documents and depositions. Boehner’s staff says they have made fair concessions, and will include Democrats in the process. But Republicans are not going to give Democrats veto power over who they call to testify. Aides to both Pelosi and Boehner vow the proverbial “ball” is in the other one’s court. All of this tit for tat has happened within 24 hours of the panel’s creation — foreshadowing a contentious summer ahead. It’s unclear how Democrats will proceed. Pelosi has weighed completely boycotting the committee, appointing a handful of Democrats or tapping lawmakers to fill the five seats that she is allotted. She first spoke to Boehner on the floor, then met with her leadership team and followed that up by sending a letter to Boehner Friday afternoon saying she wants to work with him to change the committee’s procedures. Boehner isn’t going to negotiate further. “We made a fair offer. We hope they appoint members,” said Boehner spokesman Michael Steel. “At this point, it’s time to get to work.” Whether she decides to participate or not, the committee is going to begin its work. And Democrats could be in the position of having high profile witnesses — like Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice — facing seven Republicans with no Democrats having their back.
Conservatives skeptical of power of Twitter By Laura McGann Politico.com Michelle Obama, Ellen DeGeneres and John Kerry took to Twitter to tell Nigerian kidnappers it’s time to bring back hundreds of schoolgirls. Neocons have another message: Send in the troops. Some conservatives are skeptical of the show of force on Twitter, rather than on the ground. They’re questioning why the Obama administration isn’t doing more, a complaint conservatives have made repeatedly in recent years as the White House chooses diplomacy and resists direct intervention in international flare-ups such as in Ukraine, Syria or Egypt. “No matter what the Nigerian government is doing, we should mobilize every asset that we have,” Sen. John McCain told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC earlier this week. “All the charity bicycle rides in the world won’t get those girls back from Boko Haram. Marines, however, might work,” tweeted Jeffrey Goldberg Thursday. Hollywood celebrities, Democrats and conservative hawks aren’t at odds over the horrors of an extremist group rounding up hundreds of high school girls in the middle of the night, but they are on what the United States should do about it. The White House is going diplomacy-heavy, relying on Kerry and a team of intelligence and military workers to aid the Nigerian government. The first lady sent a symbolic message Thursday, tweeting a photo of herself holding up a sign “Bring Back Our Girls” — the slogan that has gone viral across the globe in response to the kidnappings. “The sad thing here is that the low-information crowd that’s puddling around out there on Twitter is gonna think we’re actually doing something about it,” said conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh, referring to the tweet from Michelle Obama. Limbaugh is not always aligned with the neoconservative wing of the Republican Party, but he is a near-constant critic of the Obama administration’s policies at home and abroad. “I just think this is pathetic. I’m just stunned. We got 300 Nigerian girls kidnapped by an Al Qaeda group, and nobody cared or talked about it for a while, Hillary [Clinton] wouldn’t call ’em a terror group. Now all of a sudden, for some reason, we’re on a big push to get ’em back and this is how… ?” Limbaugh said, according to a transcript. The State Department under Hillary Clinton did not list the extremist group responsible for the kidnappings as a terrorist organization. The former secretary tweeted this week: “Access to education is a basic right & an unconscionable reason to target innocent girls. We must stand up to terrorism.” The White House has said it will not resort to direct military action, though it is helping the Nigerian government. “I can tell you that military assistance that we’ve talked about
providing over the last couple of days will primarily be in an advisory role,” said White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest Thursday at a news briefing in response to the growing global outrage at the kidnappings. “So I would not contemplate a deployment of troops to begin an active military operation. But there are military resources that can be brought to bear; there’s some law enforcement expertise and resources that can be brought to bear to assist the Nigerian government in their efforts to find these girls.” Since Earnest made his comments, the situation has gotten more complicated in Nigeria. CNN reported Thursday night that U.S. intelligence officials fear the roughly 300 girls have been split into smaller groups, making tracking and finding them much more difficult. “We do think they have been broken up into smaller groups,” U.S. Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said to CNN. The case of the missing girls was brought to international attention after organizers spread the word on social media. A Nigerian attorney, Ibrahim Musa Abdullahi, is credited by The Wall Street Journal with creating the hashtag #bringbackourgirls, after hearing protesters chant it. It’s been tweeted more than 2 million times. In the United States, Ramaa Mosley, a director in Los Angeles, found herself entwined in scandal after one story credited her with popularizing the movement. She has since apologized for the confusion, though she did tweet the cause widely to celebrities and politicians. And celebrities of all stripes have joined in. Actress Amy Poehler shared a photo of herself on Twitter with a sign similar to Michelle Obama’s. Singer Mary J. Blige also shared a photo with the slogan. Chris Rock kept to his own style, tweeting: “#BRINGBACKOURGIRLS You crazy motha[expletives].” Global activist Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by the Taliban for trying to attend school herself, called the girls her “sisters.” She, too, tweeted a photo with the viral hashtag. The social media organizing has also spurred in-person gatherings across the globe. In Los Angeles, actress Anne Hathaway led a crowd in chants with her husband, actor Adam Shulman. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof was also an early voice for action and encouraged his readers to join the social media push and contribute to causes that support the education and advancement of girls and women. He urged the international community to aid in rescuing the girls, though he did not advocate the use of force specifically. “The best tool to fight extremism is education, especially of girls — and that means ensuring that it is safe to study,” Kristof wrote this week. “The greatest threat to militancy in the long run comes not from drones but from girls with schoolbooks.”
Some senior Democrats — like Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.)— have made the case behind closed doors that their boycott would highlight what they consider GOP overreach. Others, like Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), argue the party needs to be present to fight back. (Also on POLITICO: John Boehner dodges on Benghazi fundraising) The panel is going to be center stage throughout the summer as the midterm elections rapidly approach. Boehner is wasting no time, appointing his seven Republicans: GOP Reps. Susan Brooks of Indiana, Jim Jordan of Ohio, Mike Pompeo of Kansas, Martha Roby of Alabama, Peter Roskam of Illinois and Lynn Westmoreland of Georgia will sit on the panel. Boehner announced earlier this week that Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) will chair the panel. In a Democratic leadership meeting Friday morning, lawmakers were divided on whether they should participate. For example, Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) suggested Democrats participate, while Reps. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) and Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) advocated a boycott. For one, Democrats were seeking a rule that would ban the committee from hearing testimony unless at least one member of the minority party is present and also want to prevent the GOP from selectively releasing excerpts of testimony. Democrats also asked that the minority be involved in any trips — a key point since House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa was criticized last year for traveling to Libya to investigate Benghazi without any Democrats present. Another key ask for Democrats is the ability to sign off on subpoenas. Republicans will not agree to that, but GOP leadership staff is signaling openness on other changes. For example, the GOP seems willing to give advance warning about subpoenas and access to investigative documents. Republicans say they were already planning on following most of these rules and largely see the Democratic requests as a way to make it appear that they won concessions from the GOP. Democrats will not announce whether they will participate in the committee until these issues are worked out. Pelosi initially wanted to boycott the committee, but a large number of Democrats want some representation on the panel, especially when witnesses like Clinton and Rice are called to testify. Pelosi’s allies appear split. Connecticut Rep. Rosa DeLauro sent a letter to colleagues Thursday evening suggesting that just one Democrat should sit on the panel. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Cailf.), a veteran of congressional investigations, signaled he wants multiple members of his party on the committee. Republicans have seven seats, while Democrats have five. Pelosi has been in California the last two days fundraising with President Barack Obama and Republicans are seizing on her absence to say she’s deaf to the need for the investigation into the 2012 attacks. At a Friday morning caucus meeting, Pelosi seemed keenly aware of the variety of opinion within her party. To those who suggested Democrats participate without any concessions, she said, “Thanks a lot for giving me leverage over the last couple of days.” Waxman, according to sources, said that Pelosi is the greatest leader he’s worked with, and added, “She just flew to L.A. and back in two days and that can make you a little grumpy.” Her caucus laughed.

Probation trial witness describes pressure on jobs By BOB SALSBERG Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — A retired Massachusetts probation official has told a jury that she believed former commissioner John O’Brien retaliated against her when she balked at his hiring orders. Ellen Slaney is the first prosecution witness in the federal trial of O’Brien and deputies Elizabeth Tavares and William Burke. The three are accused of scheming to assure that job candidates sponsored by influential lawmakers and other public officials secured jobs in the probation department. While serving as a regional supervisor, Slaney said she was often pressured by higher-ranking officials to advance certain people who had applied for probation officer positions at the expense of candidates she considered more qualified. In 2005, Slaney said O’Brien relieved her of hiring responsibilities and assigned her to finish overdue audits in the agency, which she considered retaliation.

Senior Center Continued from Page 1 snowstorm which displaced many residents from their homes for nearly a week. The bid alternates must be accepted in the listed order under state bid law, which was moot in this case because all six were accepted as part of the combined contractor bids. Council on Aging Executive Director Tina Gorman said the project is on schedule and could be approved for a construction start in late summer or early fall. Construction is expected to be completed in 14 months. “I’m thrilled about the number of bids submitted and the dollar amounts,” Gorman said. “We’re right on schedule, going to the City Council next week for the bond.” Tefft said the bond authorization request will be referred to the City Council’s Finance Committee and the Legislative & Ordinance Committee. “We will request a joint committee meeting to expedite their review,” Tefft said. “Hopefully the (City) Council will approve the first reading at their June 5 meeting and the second reading and final passage at the June 19 meet-
ing. “ State law required a 20-day appeal period following the final passage before the city can expend funds based upon the bond. 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. City Engineer Mark Cressotti requested the easements associated with the project be revised before they are submitted to the City Council for its approval. “The easement documents that I’ve seen do not cut the mustard,” Cressotti said. “The document I saw had the easement going out into the pavement which is a public way. The easement should be only to the edge of the city’s public way and not include the pavement. The document needs to be redone.” Committee Chairman John Leary said that residents “are going to have a very good senior center building. The price comparisons were very reasonable. The fact that 10 bids came in is why we’re getting it at a reasonable price.” An overview drawing of the proposed Westfield Senior Center that will be located on Noble Street.

How Blessed We Are By Iris St James “An unthankful heart discovers no mercies; but the thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessing,”—Henry Ward Beecher Recently, a speaker on T.V. ended his talk by saying, “Count your blessings, they are as numerous as the stars.” Feeling a certain amount of discontent that evening I thought, “Right!” But later as I reflected on those words I know whenever I feel my blessings are few and far between, when I envy those who have much and seemingly float through life like a feather in the air, seemingly without sorrow, struggles or strife, while many struggle along the road with the have-not’s, I only have to watch the evening news to remember how blessed I am. When I hunger, I have food to eat. . When I thirst, I have clean water to drink When I am tired, I have a safe place to sleep. A roof over my head. Family, Friends, A job.
Our shores have not been ravaged by war like so many war-torn countries around the world, where many flee for their lives, attempting to survive as refugees and displaced persons. We have freedom to speak. We have freedom to pray. To worship . We have been blessed with seasons, with the newness of spring. We have the warmth of the summer months, followed by the magnificent colors of fall. We enjoy the fruits of the soil, The labor of others, A bounty of blessings, and time to give thanks. We are near the end of our Lenten journey. Holy Thursday upon us. How blessed the Apostles called to share that Last Supper with Jesus. How blessed we are, called to do the same. And Easter. How blessed we are that Jesus died for us, for the forgiveness of sins, for you and for me. He rose from the dead. He is with us still, Alleluia!

THE WESTFIELD NEWS
Pat & Ed Lee Family Endowment My parents, Pat and Ed Lee, moved to Westfield from the Boston area in 1952. The insurance company my dad worked for had promoted him to Claims Manager, and transferred him to their Springfield office. In 1957 the insurance company planned to promote my dad again and transfer him back to Boston, but my parents wanted to stay in Westfield. My dad left the insurance company and opened his law practice. Despite my dad’s busy law practice and the raising of six children, both my parents were very active in community organizations and service to Westfield. My dad was City Solicitor for Westfield for four years. In addition, he served on the School Committee for four years and was Chairman of the High School Building Committee. He also served as Town Counsel for the Town of Russell. My dad was Commander of the American Legion Post 124; President of the Westfield Rotary Club and recipient of their Paul Harris Fellowship Award; President of the Westfield Area Child Guidance Association, Inc.; President of the Westfield Area Mental Health and Retardation Board; President of the Community Council of Greater Springfield, Inc. He also served as Director for the Boards of Work Opportunity, Inc.; YMCA of Greater Westfield; Executive Committee United Way of Pioneer Valley; and Community Funds Advisory Committee of Springfield. The Massachusetts Bar Association gave my dad their Community Service Award in 1992 in recognition of his charitable work. My mother served as President of the Westfield Woman’s Club and as Chairman of the Westfield Theatre Group for many years. She also served on the City of Westfield Community Development Board. Both my parents are great supporters of Noble Hospital. My father served on the Board of Directors and co-chaired the Noble Ball one year with my mother. My mother served as the President of the Noble Auxiliary and managed their gift shop for a number of years. She started the Bingo program at Noble, and became known as the “Bingo Lady.” My mother has been
a volunteer at Noble Hospital for over 20 years and has clocked 6,000 hours of volunteer time there. My parents are well known for being world travelers with trips to places as diverse as China, Australia, South America, and the Galapagos Islands. My dad served in the Navy, eventually retiring from the Navy Reserve as Commander. He used the GI Bill to attend college and then law school, while supporting his growing family as a Boston taxi driver. My father is a great believer in education. My dad has a long history with Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation. He was one of the incorporators, and handled all of the legal work to get Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of Westfield incorporated in the fall of 1962. He was their first fund-raising chairman. They raised $9,200 that first year and awarded 40 scholarships. In 1963, my dad was elected President of CSF of Westfield. In 1966, my father was elected President of Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of Massachusetts and as Director of Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of America, Inc. (CSFA), now knows as Scholarship America. Dad served as Chairman of the Board of Scholarship America from 1971-1979, and was instrumental in the development of their Corporate Scholarship Program. Over the years, this program has distributed more than a billion dollars in scholarships. Dad is currently serving on Scholarship America’s Honor Roll Trustees. As a legal advisor, my dad guided numerous clients in setting up endowments for Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of Westfield, usually through their Wills. These clients included: Dorothea Burgum, Koula Johnson, Frederick J. Pohl and Loretta Baker Pohl, William J. Fenton, and the American Legion Post 124. Of course, none of this would have been possible without my mom, Pat Lee. To commemorate their 50th wedding anniversary on August 15th, 1997, my parents established the Pat and Ed Lee Family Endowment. Family and friends made contributions in their honor as a lasting tribute to their marriage and their achievements in the community. Written by Cynthia Lee Andersen September 30, 2005

H.S. ROUNDUP: Tigers tourney bound By Chris Putz Staff Writer HOLYOKE – The Westfield Vocational-Technical High School baseball team is the latest ball club to punch its postseason ticket. Voc-Tech qualified for the 2014 Western Massachusetts Division 3 tournament with a 15-2 win over Dean Tech at Springdale Field in Holyoke. Walter Halluck pitched a complete game, allowing just three hits on the mound for Voke. “All of (our) guys pitched in and contributed,” Voc-Tech coach Kyle Dulude said. “We are excited to meet this goal.” Voke will play three games next week – all on the road – at
Pioneer Valley Christian School (Monday), at McCann Tech (Wednesday), and at Franklin Tech (Friday). “(Our) guys are looking to buckle down,” coach Dulude said. “(It’s) a big three game week.”

With the game still tied 1-1 and two outs, it all came down to one at bat. Tim Donais stood in and was able to lay off several tough pitches drawing the game winning RBI on a walk. The Police improved to 3-2 on the season. Game Date: 4/22/14 MoFroYo 7, Westfield Police 2 The Westfield Police (2-2) dropped their second game in a row while facing a tough pitching tandem from MoFroYo. Westfield fell behind early yielding five first inning runs. The bright spot in the inning was the fine fielding play of John Cigal to keep damage to a minimum. After the first inning, the Police managed to keep the game close with relief pitching of Sullivan Donohue and Colby LaPoint who limited MoFroYo to two runs over the final five innings. The Police scored some runs in the game due to the stellar hitting of Aidan Kingsley (2 singles, run scored). Game Date: 4/16/14 Renaissance Manor 5, Westfield Police 0 The brief winning streak for Westfield Police (2-1) came to end. They faced tough pitching from Renaissance Manor and were kept off the scoreboard. The Manor carried a no-hitter deep into the game before Evan Grant was able to break up the no-no with a single. Colby LaPoint pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings to start the game, but it was not enough as the Manor erupted for five runs in the last inning.
SOFTBALL INSTRUCTIONAL DIVISION Game Date: 5/3/14 OMG 8, Dunkin Donuts 8 The first Saturday in May was a beautiful day to play softball and OMG took on Dunkin’ Donuts at Sadie Knox field. Ella Cloutier took to the hill for her first ever pitching performance. She struck out one in one inning of work. Dunkin’ Donuts jumped out to a quick 5-0 lead but OMG battled back to score four in the bottom of the first. Tristan Walsh had two walks, a hit by pitch and two runs scored. Becky Mossati had a walk, two hit by pitches and three runs scored. Rhea Collingwood pitched four innings of fantastic relief and helped herself out at the plate going two for three with a walk. Maria Bonnfitto reached safely with a hit and a walk, and her sister Rachel had two hits and a run scored. Ella Cloutier walked twice with a run scored and Grace Burke walked once. Marlow Murphy had a terrific day at the plate scorching three hits and a run scored. The game eventually ended in a tie after 5 innings 8-8. Game Date: 5/4/4 Westfield Police Association 11, Dunkin Donuts 3 Kenzie Raymond pitched four scoreless innings and Westfield Police Association (WPA) batters pounded out eleven hits to improve to 3-1 on the season with an 11-3 victory on Sunday. Raymond struck out eleven batters and yielded only five hits over her four innings of work as WPA starting pitcher. Lindsey DeLand led the hit attack with four base hits and reached base all five times at the plate. Emily Schieppe, Kelsey Bouchard, and Raymond each had two hits apiece and Rylie Nimchick added one hit for WPA. WPA opened the scoring in the top of the first with singles by DeLand and Raymond, an RBI single from Schieppe, and a bases loaded walk to Megan Cichonski. WPA added a run in the third to make it 3-0 on singles from Nimchick and Bouchard and an RBI single from DeLand. WPA finally got some breathing room in the fifth. A single from DeLand, and five base on balls led to three runs to make it 6-0. WPA tacked on five more in the top of the sixth on a single from DeLand, a 2-RBI double by Raymond, a bases loaded walk to Nimchick, and RBI groundouts by Megan Cichonski and Allie Stucenski. Ava Cichonski pitched a 1-2-3 fifth inning for WPA and ended a Dunkin Donuts three-run rally in the sixth to close out the victory.

QUESTIONS & ATTITUDE Compelling questions ... and maybe a few actual answers
HOT TOPICS: 3 ISSUES GENERATING A BUZZ
SPEED FREAKS A couple questions we had to ask — ourselves
Worried? Does Jimmie look worried? How many friends did Brad Keselowski make at Talladega?
GODSPEAK: “Bad Brad” still has wingman Joey Logano, and don’t forget that Juan Pablo Montoya will be making a couple of Team Penske starts this season. KEN’S CALL: He’s not in it for friends, it appears. And that’s a good thing. He messed up in a pretty big way.
Are they getting the least bit nervous on the No. 48 team?
GODSPEAK: I don’t think nervous, but there appeared to be a touch of concern emanating from crew chief Chad Knaus on Sunday. KEN’S CALL: Settle down, the 48 will make the Chase, even winless. Trust me.

EYEING THE FUTURE Dale Earnhardt Jr. was the odds-on favorite to win Sunday’s Aaron’s 499 at Talladega Superspeedway. He led 26 of 188 laps in his No. 88 Chevrolet, but late in the race gave up the lead to make a pit stop for tires and fuel. He didn’t have enough gas to finish the 500-mile race. Earnhardt’s game plan at that point was to make a late charge through the field, but he didn’t get the chance because there were just too many cars on the lead lap. The Daytona 500 champion wound up finishing 26th in one of the fastest cars on the 2.66mile tri-oval. “You have to have that track position at the end and we just didn’t have it,” Earnhardt said. “I knew we were going to be sitting there in 15th at the end and get boxed in or wrecked. “We missed a lot of guys that crashed and didn’t tear up our car, so we will go to Daytona with this car and try to manage a strategy where we are not giving up 25 positions in the last 30 laps of the race.” And this is where you sense a little irritation in Earnhardt’s voice. “You have to be up front the entire race if you can,” he said. “Those guys at the end, the No. 15 (Clint Bowyer), No. 16 (Greg Biffle) and No. 11 (Denny Hamlin), — well the 15 drove up through there. But the 11 and the 16 — those guys managed it real good.” Earnhardt said he didn’t want to wreck a car capable of winning July’s Daytona Coke Zero 400. “Talladega is three-wide forever,” he said. “You know they’re going to crash, and I can’t afford to wreck anymore here. So, you’ve just got to pick your battles.”
With the exception of hungry towtruck drivers, no one was happy with Brad Keselowski. Does the Talladega win finally get Denny Hamlin’s season pointed in the right direction?
CONTRACT-YEAR RACIN’ Greg Biffle is giving it all he’s got and then some. He was disappointed he didn’t get the win at Talladega, finishing second to Denny Hamlin on a last-lap yellow flag. The 44-year-old driver is in a contract year, and a few wins would make negotiations much easier. He scored three wins over the 2012-13 Cup Series seasons. “We still have some work to do, but it sure would have been nice to get a win toward the Chase, but we’ve got some great race tracks coming up as well,” he said. “That would have been nice.”
You’re tempted to say yes, of course, because the good vibes always get in high gear when you spend a Sunday evening picking champagne- soaked confetti out of your hair. But let’s temper the “Here Comes Denny!” talk for a couple of reasons. 1. It was Talladega. Surely we’ve all learned that you can’t equate restrictor-plate success with overall NASCAR mastery; and 2. It was Denny Hamlin. Given his run of “luck” the past couple of years, you might want to take a wait-and-see approach.
Where’s Keselowski pointed? Somewhere far from harm’s way, we hope, for everyone’s sake. Brad Keselowski might lead the free world in Twitter followers, but he gained no friends Sunday at Talladega. First, he appeared to cut down too soon on Danica Patrick while passing for the lead — oops. Then, in a move that only a die-hard Kez fan would love, he was racing for all he’s worth among the lead pack, late in the race, when he spun and ruined plans for a lot of contenders. Oh, did we mention he was six laps down at the time?
Careless, or just competitive? When you think about it, the line between the two really isn’t that thin. When battling to win at Talladega, it might be a tightrope, but six laps down, the margin of error is wider than I-95. Get out of the way next time.
APOLOGY ACCEPTED? Brad Keselowski triggered a wicked multi-car accident by racing aggressively with the leaders despite being six laps down after an early tango with Danica Patrick. Matt Kenseth was eliminated in the melee. “Well, I will say one thing: If it was the other way around and it was anybody else except for him, we’d all be getting lectured,” Kenseth said of Keselowski. Keselowski didn’t apologize until he left the track and sent out this tweet: “Hate causing the big one” and “Been on the other side of the shoe and it stinks.” We will see how bad it stinks Saturday night at Kansas Speedway.

FEUD OF THE WEEK
KESELOWSKI Matt Kenseth vs. Brad Keselowski: Keselowski was six laps down, spun in the lead pack late in the race and swept Kenseth’s No. 20 Toyota off the track. Godwin Kelly gives his take: “Emotions were running high, but no punches were thrown in the Talladega garage area — this time.”
The good news: Junior avoided all the trouble at Talladega. The bad news: He was so far back, the late wrecks were practically over the horizon.

Following his first top-five finish, ’Dinger talks ’Dega They say everybody loves an underdog, and Talladega Superspeedway seems to bring out the best in the teams that otherwise have little or no chance at victory on a week-to-week basis. Talladega’s Cinderella story Sunday was AJ Allmendinger, who scored his first Top-five finish in the No. 47 Chevrolet. Allmendinger finished fifth, with his hopes of victory dashed by a last-lap yellow flag. ’Dinger was mobbed by the media after the 500-mile race. Tell us about the last few laps of that race
and how wild it was. “Yeah, first off I have to thank everybody at RCR and ECR motors. Just so much speed in the race car. I’ve got to thank everybody at the No. 47 shop for doing such hard work and preparing this car so well. The previous restart, the outside lane had such a run. I kept inching, inching and then I just waited too late and I got shuffled. “I really thought I had messed us up there and that last restart, I’ve got to thank Paul
Menard. He just kept shoving me all the way up through the inside of guys. I’m just proud of everybody on this team. I’ve got to thank everybody that helps us get to this race track and all the great sponsors we have on this team. “We are slowly getting there each step, day by day. I’m just proud to be on this team right now.” Was the racing typical Talladega or were there things a little bit different than what
we have seen in the past? “These cars … the package we have now drafts so well. I kept waiting for everybody to kind of calm down and single-file out. I went to the back at one point, like everybody is going to calm down, and it never happened. About 50 to go, I was like, ‘All right, I guess it’s time to get crazy with everybody.’ I hope the fans enjoyed it. It was awesome to see all the fans come out and how packed the grandstands were here at Talladega.”

Annie’s Mailbox By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar
Too little Too Late Dear Annie: Six months ago, I became involved with a man 20 years my senior. It has become evident that his ex-wife is still very much in the picture. They divorced 30 years ago, when he found out she was cheating. He gave her the house and half of his earnings until their children were grown. Yet he still phones her and asks whether she needs anything. Those “needs” are usually financial, in spite of her cushy job and mortgage-free life. What sent me over the edge was a recent visit to his mother’s house. I randomly picked up a family photo of his parents’ 50th anniversary party, and there she was -- right in the center. I have voiced my displeasure loud and clear: Either I am “it,” or I am out! He says she is family. What is a divorce exactly if people are going to exchange gifts and phone calls and show up at family functions? -- Too Little Too Late Dear Too Little: Every divorced couple is different. Many remain friendly with each other. Those who have children together have a lifelong bond, no matter how old the kids are. The in-laws may still consider the ex to be part of the family and so invite her to all of their functions. That is their business, not yours. While giving her money is not necessary, your boyfriend is not going to stop contacting his ex simply because you don’t like it. If you cannot deal with that, better to get out now. Dear Annie: I am 61 years old and own my own home. I am retired and live off of my investments. I have lived in this house for 30 years and have taken good care of it. I’ve been dating “Ralph” for five months, although I’ve known him for 20 years. Ralph’s house is worth twice as much as mine, and he’s hinting that if we marry, I should move into his home. I love his house, but if we marry and he predeceases me, I could not afford the taxes, mortgage and maintenance on such an expensive place. He’s already told me that he is leaving everything to his adult children. He claims I don’t need his assets unless I get sick. I moved a lot when I was young. I have no children and want the security of knowing that I will not have to move again unless it’s to a nursing home. Ralph is very nice, but I’d rather live in my own house. Also, he doesn’t want me to meet his daughters yet, so I don’t know whether they will accept his having a girlfriend, let alone a wife. -- Nancy Dear Nancy: Tell Ralph you’d like to take things more slowly and not discuss marriage until you have met his children. But Ralph also could speak to a lawyer about setting up a trust that would pay the mortgage, taxes and maintenance on his house and allow you to live there until your death (whereupon it reverts to his children). If that would ease your mind, please look into it. Dear Annie: I feel sure that, were she to pick up pen and paper, my mother would be among those parents wailing over their “heartless” children’s “abandoning” them. My mother would say that she was a loving, wonderful parent, and I’m sure she believes it. Annie, this is a woman who told me every day that she wished she’d aborted me. When I was very little, she helpfully explained the term so I would know exactly what she meant. Very rarely are abusive parents capable of comprehending that they are, in fact, abusive. There is no child on Earth who wants to not have parents. If your kids have cut you out of their lives, there is a reason, and that reason is YOU. -- S. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE TRAVEL HINT Dear Heloise: My family and I take a trip to the beach every summer. After we have been down at the beach, we are covered in sand and don’t want to track it back into our rooms. The hotel has a “rinseoff station” that you can use to wash off the sand before going inside. The problem is that our towels were covered in sand, so we would have to run up to the room dripping wet. I started putting an extra towel in a zippered plastic bag. I would bring it with us and open it only after we had rinsed off. Now we have a clean towel to dry off with that isn’t covered in sand. -- S.S. in Texas MATCHING THE DRESS Dear Heloise: Here is a hint for all of your readers with kids or grandkids going to prom. Many dress stores have tuxedo shops right next to them, or close by. They often are “sister shops.” If your daughter picks out a dress at a store, have her date go to the tuxedo shop right next to it. The stores often use the same color name, and that way the outfits will match. If this isn’t an option, see if she can get a swatch of fabric for her date to take with him when picking out a tux, so he can match her dress. -- J.L. in Texas

YOUR HOROSCOPE Contract Bridge By Jaqueline Bigar
DOG EAT DOUG
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Saturday, May 10, 2014: This year you will attempt to be as understanding as possible, yet often people do not get your intensity and caring. Pace yourself, as you have a lot to say and do this year. Learn to say “no” more often, and try not to take on additional responsibilities. You need time for yourself, too. If you are single, you could meet someone at work or at the gym. You do not need to push yourself or put yourself in a position to meet someone immediately -- it will happen on its own. If you are attached, your feelings will help loosen up your significant other. Remain nurturing, and eventually that attitude will be returned. LIBRA often seems frivolous. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

DOGS of C-KENNEL Mick and Mason Mastroianni
ONE BIG HAPPY Rick Detorie
ON a CLAIRE DAY Carla Ventresca and Henry Beckett
ZACK HILL John Deering and John Newcombe
ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Work with someone directly. Opportunities come through this person, so be receptive to what he or she has to say. If shopping for a large item, you’ll need to do some price comparison. You also might want to speak to someone who has made a similar purchase. Tonight: Dinner out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHHH Be more forthright in how you express concern to a loved one. This person has been relatively distant and appears to be opening up. You don’t want to challenge him or her, so just listen and let him or her talk. Maintain your budget at all costs. Tonight: Time to be frisky. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHH Convey more than intellectual feelings to a loved one or child. You might be more comfortable keeping the conversation light and easy. Get into a project, but be ready to stop if you become tired and overburdened. Tonight: Do what you think is fun. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Examine an alternative with care, but know that it might not be as appealing if you do. You could feel as if you can’t make a difference to a loved one, as this person appears to be closed off. Worry less, and relax with the moment. Tonight: Go to your favorite haunt. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH You could be in the mood to stay home. Invite friends over for a fun dinner. You naturally seem to have a wonderful time at home, as do your visitors. You even might decide to invite a friend you have not spoken to in a while. Tonight: Get into a flirtatious moment. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH Curb a tendency to be possessive or a need to have matters fall as you would like. Control could be more of an issue than you might have thought. Your upbeat attitude and personality will melt someone else’s resistance. Tonight: Hang out. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Consider letting a friend come in closer. This person has been unusually difficult and stern. Do not make a comment about this recent tendency, but help him or her feel as safe as possible in your company. A call from someone at a distance might be important. Tonight: The lead actor. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Visualize more of what you want from a situation. You might be in the mood to be quiet. Let a loved one open up, as this person seems to have a lot on his or her mind. You might need some additional time to reconsider your response to a serious matter. Tonight: Play it easy. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHHH Friends surround you. As a result, your sense of humor will emerge. You could be a little down and not ready to share some of your thoughts at first. Later in the day, when you are more relaxed, you might choose to express your thoughts. Tonight: Only where you have fun. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH Make a point of calling a parent or older friend before you make plans. Once you have a discussion, you might want to do something totally different. A friend could be disappointed if you cancel plans. Don’t worry -- you’ll make time for everyone. Tonight: In the limelight. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHH If you want to take off at the last minute, do. You might enjoy your
weekend away from the grind much more than you thought possible. Honor a child’s request. You will be able to do something that often isn’t even an option. Tonight: Surround yourself with music. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH You’ll see a situation far differently from how you have in a substantial amount of time. It might be necessary to have a conversation with the person who has the opposing view. At this time, you could see more logic in this person’s thoughts. Tonight: Be with a favorite friend.

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.
Bold Type (add $1.95)
When it comes to 21st century multimedia platforms, “hyper local” is a term you hear a lot.
