Councilors seek to increase revenue By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The City Council’s Finance Committee reviewed the budgets of several departments last night seeking options to increase revenue collected by those departments. City Collector Michael McMahon was asked a number of questions about the “efficiency” of tax collection within his department and if that department, critical to revenue collection, is properly staffed. McMahon said that the department is currently at a full staffing level. Ward 5 Councilor Robert Paul Sr., a member of the Finance Committee, noted that several of the departments have staff with the same job classification and asked if it would be more efficient, and cost effective, to establish a clerical pool to serve all City Hall departments. ”We tried that a while ago,” McMahon said. “It didn’t work out too well because of the different skills needed in different departments.” Finance Chairman Christopher Keefe, the Ward 1 Councilor, asked about percentages of various tax categories collected by McMahon’s department, such as property and excise taxes. McMahon said that 99 percent of property tax is collected annually and that the department has a process for collection of delinquent taxes. Keefe estimated that the one percent of taxes which are delinquent represent about $639,000 and asked about the process of collecting those delinquent funds. “After two or three years we put that property into tax title which is the first step to foreclosing on the property,” McMahon said, adding that usually property owners make arrangements to pay the owed taxes, and 14 percent interest, before the city takes the property. McMahon said that he anticipated that excise tax for the current fiscal year, which ends June 30, will be just over $3.9 million. Delinquent vehicle owners are charged 12 percent on their outstanding excise tax bills. McMahon said his department notifies the Registry of Motor Vehicles about delinquent excise payments and that vehicles owners usually pay when they attempt to renew their driver’s license or vehicle registration and find they are blocked by the Registry of Motor Vehicles because of the excise tax owed. “Excise tax revenue took a major dip when the recession hit,” McMahon said because people held onto their older vehicles longer than before the recession. “Now it’s almost back to what it was before the recession.” City Assessor Robin Whitney was asked by At-large Councilor David A. Flaherty about that department’s role in administrating tax incentive financing (TIF) agreements between the city and businesses. The City Council votes to approve a package of property and personal tax breaks for companies building new facilities or expanding existing buildings in the city, a process that increases the overall property tax value after the TIF expires. The TIFs, which also have to be approved by state agencies, are directly linked to commitments by the business, including adding new jobs to the local workforce. Flaherty has been uncomfortable with the scrutiny of compliance with those See Revenue, Page 3

Town readies for emergency exercise By Hope E. Tremblay Staff Writer SOUTHWICK – The town’s emergency management department is once again taking part in a 24-hour radio communication exercise June 28-29. Emergency Management Director Charles H. Dunlap said this will be his 52nd year participating in the Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services (RACES) exercise, which includes radio operators across the United States and Canada. “We will use the space behind Town Hall and in the back of Prifti Park,” said Dunlap. ‘We will set up on Friday and begin at 2 p.m. Saturday.” The exercise includes disaster simulation tests to facilitate emergency, health and welfare message communications for local, regional and national needs. Dunlap said locally, Southwick, Granville, Blandford, Agawam, Ludlow and East Longmeadow will participate. Contact will be made to numerous states and Canada. Dunlap said during the event, the operators are not allowed to try to contact anyone outside the U.S. and Canada but they can answer if contact is initiated from outside the country. Dunlap received permission from the Board of Selectmen to use the space behind Town Hall. He sought permission from the parks and Recreation Commission Tuesday to use the rear of Prifti Park, but only two members of the commission were present at the regularly scheduled meeting. “We cannot vote on this, but I have no problem with it,” said commission chairman Kelly Magni. “Plan on going ahead and we will vote next week.” Dunlap said the exercise is “basically an

MGM to get state’s 1st casino By PHILIP MARCELO Associated Press SPRINGFIELD (AP) — MGM will be named Massachusetts’ first casino operator, but the Las Vegasbased gambling giant will not have to immediately pay millions of dollars in state fees and other payments required by law. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission reviewed the casino’s $800 million Springfield project nearly two days before the panel agreed in principle yesterday to issue the license to MGM but delay the payments, pending a deci-

By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – City officials are defining what prescription drugs may be dropped off at the collection box in the lobby of the Westfield Police Department. The drug kiosk was initiated by the Health Department with two goals: to reduce the non-medical use of prescription drugs and to eliminate improper disposal of prescription drugs in household water. Health Director Joseph Rouse said that a 2011 substance abuse survey indicates that more than six million Americans abuse prescription drugs and that among youths JOSEPH A. 12 to 17 years of age, 7.4 percent ROUSE report non-medical use of prescription drugs. “Properly disposing of excess (prescription) drugs is everyone’s responsibility as a matter of public health and safety,” Rouse said in a prepared text released yesterday. “More than 70 percent of young people abusing prescription pain relievers get them through friends or family, a statistic that includes raiding the family medicine cabinet,” he said. “Westfield is committed to providing residents with a safe, secure and environmentally sound way to dispose of unwanted or expired household medication, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and unused pharmaceuticals,” Rouse said. “The collection site (located in the lobby of the Police Department) is open 24 hours a day, seven days

sion by the state’s Supreme Judicial Court. The court is considering whether a voter referendum to repeal the state’s casino law should be allowed on the November ballot. The commission decision comes after MGM officials suggested new language that would hold off an $85 million state licensing fee, which is due about 30 days after the license is awarded. Gaming Commission Chairman Stephen Crosby said the casino’s concern about paying the non-refundable fee was “perfectly rea-

sonable,” given the uncertainty around the court case. “We fully intend to make this award. We’re very pleased with the proposal, but we’re going to work with (MGM) to accommodate these other eventualities,” he said. “These are just business-like accommodations to these realities.” The commission plans to finalize its decision tomorrow.

By Carl E. Hartdegen Staff Writer WESTFIELD – A city man, caught by State Police in possession of heroin, was quick to take responsibility for his contraband in order to shield his father from the repercussions of heroin possession. State Trooper Gail Buck reports that she and Trooper Steve Hean had been monitoring traffic near the intersection of North and East Mountain road Monday afternoon when a random query of a passing vehicle revealed that the son of the registered owner was the subject of two outstanding warrants. Buck reports that although the operator matched the Registry of Motor Vehicles photo of the owner, the passenger appeared to be the age of the owner’s son and the troopers followed the station wagon until it stopped at a convenience store where the passenger entered the store. The troopers followed him inside and, when asked, he identified himself as Gerald F. Mulligan Jr., 34, of 103 Court Street, but denied knowledge of the warrants. Buck reports that when taken into custody he was asked, “since he had prior history of class A substance offenses”, if he was in possession of any needles and Mulligan said that although he did not have any needles on his person he had a “kit” in the car. Buck reports “Mulligan was concerned about his father (owner/operator of the vehicle) getting into trouble” and was forthright with the troopers. The operator of a vehicle is considered to be in control of a vehicle and is generally responsible for its contents. Mulligan told them that he had just purchased heroin in Holyoke and had recently injected a dose in a restaurant bathroom. Buck reports that his father consented to a search of his vehicle and she found the kit, which included “five pink wax bags (bindles), each with a small amount of tan residue inside” which she recognized to be packaging for heroin. She also found three white pills and reports “Mulligan admitted that these were sleeping pills, not prescribed to him.” Mulligan was arrested and the bail clerk ordered that he be held without right to bail. Arraigned in Westfield District Court Tuesday before Judge Philip A. Contant on charges of possession of a Class A drug and possession of a Class E drug, Mulligan was held in lieu of $500 cash bail pending a July 10 hearing.

Police in Alabama say man tried to arrest mayor WEAVER, Ala. (AP) — Police in eastern Alabama arrested a man they say impersonated an officer and tried to arrest the mayor. The Anniston Star (http://bit.ly/1qtly3Y) reports that police say 59-year-old Bobby Beck showed up at City Hall in Weaver on Tuesday with a badge and a pistol on his belt and said he wanted to talk to Mayor Wayne Willis. When told the mayor wasn’t available, he held up a pair of handcuffs and said he’d be back later to arrest him. He was being held on felony charges of impersonating a peace officer, making a terrorist threat and carrying a pistol without a permit. It wasn’t immediately clear if he has a lawyer. Police Chief Wayne Bush says Beck told police he worked for the FBI and planned to arrest Willis for working parttime as mayor.

O

n June 12, 1939, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum was dedicated in Cooperstown, New York.

On this date: In 1776, Virginia’s colonial legislature became the first to adopt a Bill of Rights. In 1898, Philippine nationalists declared independence from Spain. In 1920, the Republican national convention, meeting in Chicago, nominated Warren G. Harding for president on the tenth ballot; Calvin Coolidge was nominated for vice president. In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge was nominated for a term of office in his own right at the Republican national convention in Cleveland. (Coolidge had become president in 1923 upon the sudden death of Warren G. Harding.) In 1942, Anne Frank, a German-born Jewish girl living in Amsterdam, received a diary for her 13th birthday, less than a month before she and her family went into hiding from the Nazis. In 1956, the Flag of the United States Army was officially adopted under an executive order signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In 1963, civil rights leader Medgar Evers, 37, was shot and killed outside his home in Jackson, Mississippi. (In 1994, Byron De La Beckwith was convicted of murdering Evers and sentenced to life in prison; he died in 2001.) One of Hollywood’s most notoriously expensive productions, “Cleopatra,” starring Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and Rex Harrison, opened in New York.

In 1964, South African black nationalist Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life in prison along with seven other people, including Walter Sisulu, for committing sabotage against the apartheid regime (all were eventually released, Mandela in 1990). In 1967, the Supreme Court, in Loving v. Virginia, struck down state laws prohibiting interracial marriages. In 1974, President Richard Nixon arrived in Cairo, Egypt, at the beginning of a Middle East tour. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan, during a visit to the divided German city of Berlin, publicly challenged Soviet leader Mikhail S. Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.” In 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were slashed to death outside her Los Angeles home. (O.J. Simpson was later acquitted of the killings in a criminal trial, but was eventually held liable in a civil action.) Boeing’s new 777 jetliner went on its first test flight.

Ten years ago:

Gunmen firing from a car killed Iraq’s deputy foreign minister (Bassam Salih Kubba). Suspected militants killed an American in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Former President Ronald Reagan’s body was sealed inside a tomb at his presidential library in Simi Valley, California, following a week of mourning and remembrance by world leaders and regular Americans.

Five years ago:

U.S. television stations ended analog broadcasts in favor of digital transmission. Congress approved legislation banning “light” or candy-flavored cigarettes and requiring tobacco companies to make bigger warning labels and run fewer ads. The U.N. Security Council imposed sanc-

tions on North Korea for its second nuclear test. The Pittsburgh Penguins defeated the Detroit Red Wings 2-1 to win the Stanley Cup in Game 7.

One year ago:

The director of the National Security Agency, Gen. Keith Alexander, vigorously defended once-secret surveillance programs before the Senate Intelligence Committee, saying that collecting Americans’ phone records and tapping into their Internet activity had disrupted dozens of terrorist attacks. Ariel Castro, accused of holding three women captive in his Cleveland home for about a decade, pleaded not guilty to hundreds of rape and kidnapping charges. (Castro was later sentenced to life plus 1,000 years and soon after committed suicide in prison.) NASCAR driver Jason Leffler, 37, died after an accident at a dirt car event at Bridgeport Speedway in New Jersey.

CORRECTION: Due to a production error the following article did not run in its entirety yesterday. The News regrets the error.

Deedy: Carnival, fireworks to go on By Hope E. Tremblay Staff Writer SOUTHWICK – If Joe Deedy gets his way, the carnival – and fireworks – will go on. Deedy, a selectman, Rotarian and owner of Moolicious Ice Cream, told the Parks and Recreation Commission Tuesday night that he has a plan to keep the town’s summer traditions going. The carnival, normally organized by the Southwick Fireman’s Association, was canJOSEPH celed this year and the J. DEEDY. fireworks budget was cut to $1,800. Deedy admitted to the commission last night that he was the driving force behind the cuts, but he had a way to make it happen. Parks and Rec. Chairman Kelly Magni said late last month he was determined to have the fireworks, but he wasn’t sure how or where since the school campus was not available. After a story broke in The Westfield News about the situation, residents, business owners and the Southwick Police Association have come forward with donations for fireworks. Deedy took that a step further and approached a carnival company to run a three-day event July 25-27. He told the commission that he hoped the fireworks could take place July 25, a family-friendly band could perform in the Southwick Recreation Center July 26, and the Rotary’s Grillin Daze was already set for July 27. Having the carnival on the grounds of the Recreation Center would be an added attraction. “I went to the Rec. Center today, and it’s small, but they could have some rides,” Deedy said. Deedy said while the carnival he’s working on would not be as large as in past years, it would continue the 60-plus-year tradition. “We’re gonna have a carnival this year,” said a determined Deedy.

Deedy said he spoke to Southwick Police Chief David Ricardi for an estimate of how much it would cost to have police at the event. “He said it was in the range of $1,400-$1,800,” said Deedy. “I reached out to the fire chief because in year’s past they had a line item that covered police for the carnival and parade, so I asked if they would put that $1,800 toward the cost of police for a carnival since it’s a community event.” Deedy assured the commission that they would not need to pay any cost associated with the carnival beyond the purchase of fireworks. Deedy also partnered with The Westfield News to generate donations through an advertising campaign in the newspaper beginning in early July. Deedy is also collecting donations at Moolicious, and suggested that the Board of Selectmen make a $500 donation from its gift fund. “We need to raise at least $8,000 for fireworks,” he said. Magni said there were two options for shooting the fireworks, including the motocross pits at the American Legion and Whalley Park. He and fellow commissioner Susan Grabowski agreed – along with Deedy – that Whalley Park was higher ground and would be the better location but the park would remain closed. Magni said people could see the fireworks from the Recreation Center, as well as the school parking lots. The commission did not have a quorum at its meeting yesterday and could not take any action on the discussion but both the present members were on board with Deedy’s plan. The commission is set to meet again next Tuesday. Anyone wishing to make a donation to the fireworks should contact the Parks and Rec. Commission.

Revenue Continued from Page 1 committments by businesses awarded TIFs. Whitney said companies awarded TIFs have to make regular reports to the state and that her department has links to those websites. “We can get in and check,” Whitney said, adding that in the past City Advancement Officer Jeff Daley, who brokered many of the TIF agreements, also did his own compliance check. At least one company was found in default of staffing levels and hired new people to bring itself into compliance. Whitney said that she will discuss the TIF compliance process with Joseph Mitchell, the newly hired City Advancement Officer. “I’ll ask him if he plans to follow up with that practice,” Whitney said. Health Director Joseph Rouse was also questioned about increasing revenue at the city’s Twiss Street Transfer Station. The city is seeking to increase the tip limit from the current 50 tons a day, which is just sufficient for curbside collection of solid waste, to as high as 150 tons a day, which would allow the city to collect commercial solid waste and perhaps construction debris and which would generate a much greater revenue stream. Rouse said that when he was appointed the tip lift process, which requires licensing by the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), was two years behind the timeline established. “We’re making progress, have regular meetings with our consultants, Tighe & Bond, and have gotten the permitting process back on track,” Rouse said. “We have a design for the new facility which will include a 21,000-square-foot enclosed tipping building.”

Prescription Drugs Continued from Page 1 a week,” Rouse said. “Drugs can be dropped off with no questions asked.” The Health Department contracted with MedReturn, LLC of Grafton, Wis. to provide and maintain the collection kiosk. The environmental concern related to the improper disposal of drugs was raised by the federal Environmental Protection Agency and the state Department of Environmental Protection because prescription drugs disposed of with household trash were percolating through landfills and into the water table and aquifers which in many communities, such as Westfield, is a source of drinking water. The collaborative program between the Health and Police departments was initiated in May as a means of establishing a permanent drug collection program. Prior to the city’s program, the federal Drug Enforcement Administration funded periodic collections through local police departments. Rouse said that if a safe alternative is not available to the public, the usual options are either to flush unwanted drugs or include them with household trash and that both of those alternatives “are not technically prohibited but (they’re) very much frowned on” because, he said they are “not very environmentally responsible.” Under the guidelines of the new collection program residents can dispose of the following: prescriptions, prescription patches, prescription ointments, over-the-counter medications, vitamins, drug samples and medications for pets. A number of health-related items are not eligible for disposal at the collection box including, needles/sharps, thermometers, inhal-

ers, hydrogen peroxide, non-prescription ointments, liquids or lotions, aerosol cans and medications from clinics or businesses. The Health Department has a sharps collection kiosk at the Health Department offices in City Hall.

MGM Continued from Page 1 gambling revenues in 2013, was pleased with the commission’s plans. He said the fee delay was important to a deal. “Many recognize the difficult situation that we’re in,” he said. “We want to get to work and to get this project going.” The court ruling is expected before July 9. Under the proposed license terms, MGM would pay the licensing fee about eight days afterward if the court decides not to allow the repeal question on the ballot. But if the question is placed on the ballot, the fee would come due only if the repeal referendum is defeated.

By Crystal Miller, Trauma Mamas Support Group (First Congregational Church, Westfield, MA) www.attachmenttraumanetwork.com I am just a mom. Like any other caregiver, I revel in the sweet and funny exchanges with my children. Instinctively, I understood before having children, that when you smile and coo at a baby, they will smile, coo, and maybe even babble (my favorite!) back at me. If I throw a brightly colored bouncy-ball towards a toddler, chances are, that toddler is going to run after it – gleefully! When I smile at my friend’s tweens or teens (if I can get them to look over their phone or video games) they are usually going to smile back at me and politely say “Hello, Mrs. Miller”. But, what if that child has known early PAIN. Physical and/ or emotional…the result is devastating to both the child and to all of the people who love and care for him or her. ALL INSTICNTS NO LONGER APPLY. Of course, abuse and neglect are the most obvious trespasses you might envision, but in my support group for caregivers of children with a history of early childhood trauma, we are witnessing that any and all pain before the age of 3 can have long-lasting developmental effects. Many children who had experienced neo-natal pain, medical trauma, and even just one childhood disruption (like being moved from one good home to another due to family illnesses or similar) are traumas. Some children are highly resilient, and will never develop trauma-based behaviors. Again, I’m no expert, I’m just a mom. So, what do we do with these hurt kids? Clearly, love-based parenting is at the center of our cause, but the resulting behaviors of early trauma MORE THAN CHALLENGE that premise. These children have been hard-wired into survival mode. They instinctively need to make you hurt, as they do. Lying, cheating, stealing, manipulation, and aggressive behaviors are all maladaptive strategies that we caregivers did NOT model. Yet, here we are. It can be so draining, that these behaviors are the cause of many divorces…as if this world wasn’t challenging enough? These kids – AND THEIR FAMILIES – are desperate for help from their communities. Sadly, early trauma is the big elephant in the room…many well-intended family and loved ones do not want to acknowledge it, or are afraid, and want to walk away. As parents in our own darkest

moments, who could blame them?? Love, and the desire to help another human being keeps bringing us parents back, but we are only human. And most importantly, so are our children. I have an adopted child of severe early childhood trauma. Her pain is my pain. I dare not write about the behaviors I have witnessed for fear that you will turn away; I need you. I need everyone in our community to recognize the mental health crisis in these children, and to *please* offer support to me and other families like ours, in the following ways: Friends and Family: Please offer Respite, in the form of short-term babysitting and/or overnight stays, so that my husband and I may find our quiet together again. Please be flexible! We have no choice but to live in-the-moment with their issues. Also, an Adoption baby shower is SO wonderful and welcoming to the family who has decided to take on this monumental task…please help them feel loved and supported, and ask the family when might they want the party (after finalization, or when the child first comes home). Understand, too, there are many facets of adoption and the resulting necessary therapies that are extremely expensive for these families…any way you can help is so wonderful. And, get your friend out for adult mental health time! Laughter, shopping, carousing – just BE there for them! Lastly: please do not question their parenting. Local Places of Worship: When a family brings home a child through the adoptive (or Guardianship) process (domestic or international), please know that what most would consider a fairly happy occasion is actually a trauma for this child, no matter how young. PLEASE offer meals, transportation, errand-runs, and companionship to the family, for as long as they may need it. Local Communities: Donate time or funds towards your local Adoption Journeys unit (Florence, MA). And, volunteer to care for kids at parents’ support groups! Local Employers: Living with a hurt child is like living with a giant shoe hanging over your head…they never know when it is going to drop. As much as possible, please be supportive and flexible to your employee – especially if medical issues are a component of the scenario. Educators: PLEASE Read about and understand Developmental Trauma…it could literally save a life. ­­­——— www.attachmenttraumanetwork.com

The downside of ambition By Manu Raju and Lauren French Politico.com Eric Cantor’s stunning primary loss underscores a grim irony for lawmakers looking to build their clout on Capitol Hill: Power in Washington can make them weak back home. As disdain for Congress reaches historic levels, many lawmakers who have risen the ranks on Capitol Hill are returning to their districts to find that success is exactly what is threatening their reelection bids. Cantor’s Washington maneuverings appear to be one of the reasons he will go down in history as the first House majority leader ever to lose a primary contest. His experience is a sobering reminder to leading members of both parties who must still face the voters this election season and are trying to sell their records. “Certainly we need leadership here,” said Sen. Jim Risch, a former state Senate president in Idaho. “But do not think it’s going to do anything for you at home — it does not. And indeed, it’s usually a burden you’re carrying at home as opposed to enhancing your chances for reelection.” The anti-establishment fervor is afflicting Sen. Thad Cochran in Mississippi, the second-longest serving Republican who may soon be ousted by a tea party challenger even though he’s in line to run the powerful Senate Appropriations Committee. Mitch McConnell’s status as the Senate’s top Republican doesn’t offer him any guarantees of Election Day success. Meanwhile, Sen. Mary Landrieu of Louisiana is in a tight race despite her leadership of the Energy and Natural Resources Committee. Accruing seniority in the Capitol has become increasingly toxic since the rise of the tea party in 2010, with GOP primary voters eager to boot out establishment Republicans and infuse the party with flesh blood. Then-Sen. Richard Lugar, one of the most influential foreign policy voices of his time, lost in 2012 despite his Washington prominence. “Sen. Lugar did not get home enough, and he lost touch with Republican primary voters,” said Indiana GOP Rep. Marlin Stutzman. “That’s obviously what happened here.” That’s creating a sense on Capitol Hill that no one is safe. “I’ve been around long enough to know that any incumbent must believe that they are in danger,” said Sen. John McCain,

who is making preparations for reelection in 2016. “I believe I am in danger, and I take nothing for granted.” McCain, who has served in the Senate since 1987, quickly softened his “danger” comment. “I believe as an incumbent, I’m going to have to sell myself and my record to my constituents.” At an afternoon Capitol Hill press conference, Cantor refuted suggestions he had ignored his district at the behest of his national duties. He said there was a “balance” between serving in leadership and “serving your constituents,” arguing “never was there a day” when he ignored the needs of voters in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. But, Cantor acknowledged: “All politics are local.” Some Republicans in leadership positions said Wednesday that Cantor’s loss makes clear the political challenges of serving in the top — particularly at a time when voters believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. “There is some challenge when you’re in the leadership that you’re viewed as a national figure and not a local figure,” said Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn, who faces reelection this year. “His being majority leader of the House is a very highprofile job. He was seen as the point person in a lot of ways negotiating with the White House. And that has its hazards.” That’s one of the reasons why Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander stepped down from the leadership in 2011. He resigned as the No. 3 Republican so it would free him of pressures to tow the national GOP line. Alexander, who is up for reelection this year, now says being visible across the state isn’t a problem for him. “I walked across the state,” Alexander said, referring to when he walked 1,000 miles across the state when he ran for governor at the age of 34. “And if I had to walk across the state again, I’d still do it.” Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) ruled out a leadership run on Wednesday as he’s viewed a top potential contender for the 2016 presidential nomination. Of course, leadership isn’t always a curse. Cornyn and Illinois Sen. Richard Durbin, the chamber’s No. 2 Democrat, appear safe this year. And plenty of House Republicans are looking for ways to move into newly opened leadership spots. The Cantor loss to an unknown college professor, Dave Brat,

stunned Capitol Hill, reverberating from the Italian restaurant where House Speaker John Boehner learned the news Tuesday night, to a Wednesday morning meeting between Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and South Carolina Republicans and the afternoon House GOP session in which Cantor announced his upcoming resignation from the leadership. Rep. Tom Rice (R-S.C.) said there was ample chatter about Cantor’s loss during the Wednesday morning meeting in Cruz’s office. He said it’s understandable why Republicans in Washington are facing pushback from their base. “I think people don’t understand why we haven’t done more to stop some of the president’s polices that are strangling the economy,” Rice said. Others, like Cruz, who is eying a 2016 presidential run, were more pointed at GOP leaders. “This election should be a reminder to all in Congress — Republicans and Democrats alike — that the conservative base is alive and well,” Cruz said, “and the American people will hold us accountable.” Sen. Jeff Sessions, a conservative Republican from Alabama who has served since 1997, said Cantor’s loss is a “wake-up call” to the GOP establishment. “[Voters] are not happy with President [Barack] Obama and the Democratic leadership — but they are also are not convinced that Republicans have their interests at heart,” Sessions said. “So I think there there will be some soul-searching over how to serve the national interests and what is the national interest.” But some in the GOP cautioned Republicans from drawing too much from a low-turnout summer primary. “This was either ignoring your district or running a bad campaign — or both,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), who dined with Boehner when the news broke Tuesday night. Boehner immediately placed a call to Cantor, whom he could not reach. Burr and another dining partner, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), said that Boehner showed little emotion Tuesday night He was “measured,” Burr said. By Wednesday, Boehner was in tears as Cantor told his colleagues he’ll leave leadership next month. ——— Burgess Everett contributed to this report.

eer ticks, which can harbor the bacteria that cause Lyme disease, lie dormant in the winter. However, in March and April the adults become active, lay eggs, then die. “Nymphs” (which have developed from last year’s eggs) become active in May and remain so throughout the summer. In the fall, the nymphs become new adults, which are most active in October and November. They again become dormant during the winter. Dr. Stephen Eipper, an emergency medicine specialist at Baystate Urgent Care in Northampton says, “nymphs and adults can both transmit Lyme disease. The nymphs can be found in leafy, low vegetation areas, such as household gardens and yards, as well as in wooded areas. Adults are often found in taller grasses and brush. The ticks feed mainly on animals such as mice and deer. These mammals harbor the bacteria and pass it to the ticks.” “Most Lyme disease is transmitted by nymphs, since they are smaller and harder to see than adults. Nymphs are about the size of a poppy seed, while adults ticks are closer to a sesame seed,” Dr. Eipper continues.

In order to transmit Lyme disease, a tick must: be a deer tick (the other common tick in our region is the larger dog tick); carry the Lyme disease bacteria (over 25% are infected); and be attached for 36 hours or more (there will usually be swelling of the tick with blood). Dr. Eipper offers the following tips: Perform body checks after each outdoor encounter. Be sure to check the neck (hairline), armpits, back, behind the knees, and the thigh, buttock and groin areas. DEET repellent spray is very effective. If walking through tall vegetation, wear pants. Tuck the pant legs into socks, then spray the ankle and leg areas with DEET. Some sport clothing is now treated with permethrin, an insecticide that kills ticks but is not harmful to humans. You can also buy permethrin as a spray for your clothes (it lasts through many washings). Symptoms become more generalized in the first few months of illness. These can include a widespread rash, arthritic pain of a single joint (usually the knees), abnormal heartbeat, and The head of the tick burrows beneath the skin looking for a blood supply, leaving the body neurologic symptoms (such as paralysis of one side of the face (Bell’s palsy), and meningitis). exposed.

Lawmakers reach compromise on minimum wage BOSTON (AP) — House and Senate negotiators have reached a compromise on a bill hiking the minimum wage in Massachusetts.

The hourly minimum for the state’s lowest paid workers would go to $9 on Jan. 1, 2015, to $10 the following new year, and finally to $11 on Jan. 1, 2017. The measure would not tie future increases to inflation.

Atkocaitis said. “They caught us off guard. Despite the loss, the memory of an unbeaten run through Western Massachusetts will last well into the offseason, and beyond. “It was the perfect senior year,” said the team’s fiery shortstop, Westfield’s Lexi Minicucci, who needed a moment to gather herself following the emotional loss. “We came out on top, and no one believed in us.” Minicucci was stellar defensively, making several putouts and assisting on others. Said Bombers’ coach Joe Stella: “This was a feather in their caps. Not many teams can say they go undefeated, 23-0.” They may not have been the best team in the state on Wednesday, but the Bombers were the best team in Western Mass. – all season long. “Senior year,” Atkocaitis said. “We’re definitely never going to forget it.” Neither should anyone else.

By Chris Putz Staff Writer WORCESTER – Don Mattingly … David Beckham … Michael Jordan … LeBron James … the Westfield Bombers. There have been some memorable famous athletes who have donned No. 23. Players for the 2014 Westfield High School softball team will now have “Number 23” attached to each of their names for a lifetime. Central Massachusetts champion Holy Name snapped Western Massachusetts champion Westfield’s winning streak at 23 games, defeating the Bombers 6-1 in a Division 1 state semifinal game late Wednesday night at Worcester State University. Holy Name raced out to a 3-0 first-inning lead, and never looked back. “We came in knowing it was going to be a good game, but we went out fighting,” said Westfield senior catcher Kaitlyn Puza (3-for-4), who drove in the team’s only run with a fifth-inning double. “For 10 seniors, this was amazing,” Puza said. “We didn’t lose tonight. Nobody can take 23 games away from us.” Holy Name took away win No. 24 with a fast start. Lightning-quick lead-off batter Ama Biney singled and stole second base to begin the game for Holy Name (22-2). She scored on Heather Drummond’s RBI single. An overthrow on an errant pickoff attempt at third base – Puza’s arm caught a piece of the batter at the plate and went array – an error in the outfield, and a fielder’s choice led to the Naps’ 3-0 lead. Puza’s fifth-inning smack cut the lead to two, but it was as close as Westfield would get. In the seventh, Holy Name tacked on three insurance runs with booming hits from Biney (RBI triple), Drummond (RBI double), and Kelsey Saucier (RBI double) in subsequent at-bats. “They had their day; we had our moments,” said Westfield’s senior third baseman Atkocaitis, who racked up some 140 hits in her high school career. The Bombers managed just six hits against Holy Name pitcher, Saucier, with Puza collecting half of them. Jessie Pratt, Madison Brockney, and Maddy Atkocaitis had the others. “(Holy Name) had a lot of good hitters, their pitching was really strong, and they had speed and hits,”

Rangers deny Marlins interleague record RANGERS 6, MARLINS 0 ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Yu Darvish pitched his first complete game in the majors, Shin-Soo Choo broke a long hitless streak with a three-run double and the Texas Rangers denied Miami’s bid for a record interleague winning streak, beating the Marlins 6-0 on Wednesday night. Darvish (7-2) struck out the side in the eighth to end a streak of one baserunner in each of the first seven innings for the Marlins. The Japanese ace finished his 73rd career start with his 10th strikeout, getting Garrett Jones swinging to complete a six-hitter. The Marlins had to settle for tying the New York Yankees (2003-04) and Tampa Bay (2004) for the longest interleague winning streak at 13 games. It was Miami’s first interleague loss since Aug. 12 at Kansas City. Jacob Turner (2-4) was the loser. REDS 5, DODGERS 0 CINCINNATI (AP) — Johnny Cueto matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in six innings, and Joey Votto and Jay Bruce — the missing core of Cincinnati’s batting order much of the season — each drove in runs, leading the Reds past Los Angeles. Cueto (6-5) followed his shortest start of the season with one of his most dominating. He gave up three singles and didn’t walk a batter, leaving after his 112th pitch. Cueto lasted only five innings during an 8-0 loss to Philadelphia on Friday night. Jonathan Broxton escaped a basesloaded, one-out threat in the seventh by getting Hanley Ramirez to ground into a double play. Votto doubled home a pair of runs off Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3), who had won his last four starts. RAYS 6, CARDINALS 3 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Desmond Jennings had a two-run single in a four-run fourth inning and Tampa Bay snapped a club-record 31-inning scoring drought in a victory over St. Louis. Tampa Bay won for just the second time in 16 games after having been shut out in its previous three contests. The Rays had scored 35 runs over the previous 15 games. Yadier Molina had two RBIs for the

Cardinals, who entered with three consecutive shutout pitching performances. The Rays’ big fourth inning came against Michael Wacha (4-5). Juan Carlos Oviedo (2-2) went 1 1-3 inning for the win. Grant Balfour threw the final 2 1-3 innings for his 10th save. PHILLIES 3, PADRES 0 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Reid Brignac hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning to lift Philadelphia past San Diego, giving the Phillies consecutive victories for the first time since a threegame streak May 17-20. Nick Vincent (0-2) walked Domonic Brown with one out and hit Carlos Ruiz. Brignac then sent a 2-0 pitch into the right-field seats for his first homer with the Phillies and his second walk-off hit in two weeks. Starters Cole Hamels and Tyson Ross matched zeros, but didn’t get decisions. Hamels struck out a season-high 11 and allowed five hits in eight shutout innings for the Phillies. Ross struck out seven in seven scoreless innings, giving up four hits. Jonathan Papelbon (2-1) tossed a scoreless ninth for the win. ROCKIES 8, BRAVES 2 DENVER (AP) — Tyler Matzek pitched two-hit ball for the first seven innings of his major league debut before faltering in the eighth, and Colorado beat Atlanta. The left-hander retired the first 13 hitters and 21 of 23 before allowing three straight singles to start the eighth. He’s the third Colorado pitcher in the last six days to make his debut. Matzek (1-0) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out seven in sevenplus innings. He also had his first hit and first run. The Rockies had lost 11 of 12. Julio Teheran (6-4) entered Wednesday with a 1.89 ERA, best in the majors, but Colorado scored three in the first on Drew Stubbs’ RBI double and Corey Dickerson’s two-run triple. WHITE SOX 8, TIGERS 2 CHICAGO (AP) — Jose Abreu hit an early homer off Justin Verlander, then singled to start a seven-run burst in the sixth inning that sent John Danks and Chicago past Detroit. Abreu went 3 for 4 with a walk and scored twice. The Cuban rookie has 19 home runs and 50 RBIs this season. Danks (5-5) allowed two runs and six

hits in seven innings to continue his recent turnaround. He has permitted just five runs in 29 1-3 innings over his last four starts. Verlander (6-6) gave up seven runs and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings. BREWERS 3, METS 1 NEW YORK (AP) — Jonathan Lucroy had three hits and Wily Peralta pitched into the seventh inning to send Milwaukee past slumping New York. Lucroy doubled twice and drove in a run, raising his batting average to .341. Carlos Gomez and Jean Segura each had an RBI as the NL Central leaders wore down Jacob deGrom (0-3). Peralta (6-5) used a 96-98 mph fastball and nasty slider to hold the punchless Mets to four hits in 6 1-3 innings. New York lost for the seventh time in eight games. TWINS 7, BLUE JAYS 2 TORONTO (AP) — Josh Willingham hit a two-run home run, and Minnesota’s Phil Hughes struck out a season-high nine to win in Toronto for the first time in almost three years. Kendrys Morales had three of Minnesota’s season-high 16 hits to help the Twins improve to 5-2 against Toronto. Morales is 6 for 13 with three RBIs since making his Twins debut Monday. Hughes (7-2) allowed seven hits and walked none in seven shutout innings for his first win at Rogers Centre since July 17, 2011, when he played for the New York Yankees. He’s 7-1 with a 2.27 ERA in his past 10 starts. Marcus Stroman (3-1) was the loser. ASTROS 5, DIAMONDBACKS 1 HOUSTON (AP) — Chris Carter homered twice and Dallas Keuchel pitched eight strong innings for Houston. Keuchel (8-3) won for the sixth time in seven starts. He allowed four hits and a run, striking out five and lowering his ERA to 2.38. Carter’s first solo home run made it 3-1 in the fourth inning, and he added an opposite-field shot in the seventh. It was the fifth career multihomer game for Carter and second this year. Brandon McCarthy (1-9) allowed eight hits and four runs in six-plus innings to remain winless since May 3.

Chen, Orioles beat slumping Sox By DAVID GINSBURG AP Sports Writer BALTIMORE (AP) — Wei-Yin Chen turned in his finest performance of the season, yet there was reason to believe his masterful outing had something to do with the team he was facing — the struggling Boston Red Sox. Chen allowed four hits over seven innings, Chris Davis homered and the Baltimore Orioles cruised to a 6-0 victory Wednesday night at soggy Camden Yards. Nick Hundley had two hits and an RBI for the Orioles, who yielded only one run in winning two of three from the defending World Series champions. “I’d be the first to say I think we kind of caught Boston not swinging the bats as well as they’re capable of,” Baltimore manager Buck Showalter said. “But I’m impressed with the way our guys pitched the last three days.” Chen (7-2) did not return after rain delayed the game for 1 hour, 38 minutes in the middle of the seventh. The Taiwanese left-hander struck out a season-high seven, walked none and was aided by three double plays. “There is not much difference between this outing and the previous outings but I think if I had to

say one, it’s my command,” Chen said through a translator. “My command on my breaking balls. I was able to locate them in the strike zone or out of the strike zone. That’s the main difference.” It didn’t hurt that he was going up against a Boston team that has been blanked six times, twice in this series. “One run in 27 innings is extremely difficult,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “You credit their pitching, you credit inningending double plays three different times tonight. We’ve got to a better job offensively all the way around.” Dustin Pedroia had two singles for the Red Sox, who have lost seven of nine. “We haven’t been swinging the bats good,” Pedroia said. “It seems like when we do hit the ball well it’s right at somebody or we get a rally going and we find a way to stop it quick. You’ve got to keep fighting through it. It’s all we can do.” Rubby De La Rosa (1-2) needed only 15 pitches to dig himself and the Red Sox a 3-0 hole. Steve Pearce walked and scored on a double by Adam Jones before Davis went deep into the right-field seats. It was the 10th home run of the season for Davis, the defending major league home run champion.

The slugger took extra batting practice before the game in an effort to break out of a 3-for-19 skid. After play resumed in the seventh with Baltimore ahead 4-0, the few fans remaining watched Darren O’Day and Zach Britton each pitch an inning to complete the four-hitter. “I was real pleased and proud of the way our guys pitched the last three days, all of them, the bullpen, too,” Showalter said. “They came in and did what they’re supposed to do and we didn’t have to get anybody up behind them.” Chen retired the first 11 batters, six by strikeout, before Pedroia lined a single into the right-field corner with two outs in the fourth. He was thrown out by Nick Markakis trying to stretch it into a double. After Baltimore went up 4-0 in the fourth on a two-out RBI single by Hundley, a replay wiped out the inning’s second run. Hundley was called safe at second base on a fielder’s choice as Jonathan Schoop scored, but Farrell asked for a replay and Hundley was subsequently ruled out. In the eighth, Red Sox reliever Chris Capuano walked Schoop and Markakis with the bases loaded. NOTES: The Orioles’ 10-game homestand continues Thursday with the opener of a four-game series against AL Eastleading Toronto. Mark Buehrle (10-2) starts for the Jays against Kevin Gausman (1-1). ... Boston sends Jon Lester (6-7) to the mound Thursday night in the opener of a four-game series against Cleveland. ... Pedroia went 2 for 3 against Chen and is 14 for 27 lifetime against the lefty. ... Orioles 3B Manny Machado, who’s appealing a suspension that was supposed to start Tuesday, went 0 for 3 and is hitless in his last 18 at-bats. ... On the day he turned 26, Boston’s Brock Holt had his 10-game hitting streak end and failed to reach base for only the second time in 20 starts as Boston’s leadoff hitter.

Rangers beat Kings, stay alive in Cup finals By SIMMI BUTTAR AP Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Henrik Lundqvist and some soft ice in front of his net kept the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup finals. Lundqvist made 40 saves in the Rangers’ 2-1 victory in Game 4 that kept the Los Angeles Kings from a sweep on Wednesday night. Twice Los Angeles put the puck on the goal line without getting it all the way across. The last came with 1:11 left in the game when Rangers forward Derek Stepan pushed the puck out of danger after it got behind Lundqvist. “It’s probably the product of moving a lot,” Lundqvist said. “I stay deep in the net, so there’s a lot of snow there.” “I thought I had it because I felt the puck, felt like I got a good piece of it on that deflection. I was yelling at the ref to blow the whistle. Then I realized it was behind me for a couple seconds.” Benoit Pouliot and Martin St. Louis each scored for the Rangers. Los Angeles leads the series 3-1 and will get its second shot to claim the Cup for the second time in three years Friday night at home. “We would have liked to finish it tonight, but having the next game back at home, that is where we are comfortable,” Kings defenseman Drew Doughty said. “We are in front of our fans, we are at the Staples Center, we are on good ice. I’m looking forward to it.” According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Lundqvist is the first goaltender to record at least 40 saves in an elimination regulation win in the Cup finals since the NHL began recording saves as an official statistic in the 1950s. “Hank stood on his head,” Stepan said. “He made some big saves in some big times for us. Hank stood tall and he’s a big part of why we are going back to LA.” Pouliot scored 7:25 into the first period and St. Louis added a goal in the second. New York squandered multiple two-goal advantages in losing the first two games in overtime in Los Angeles. Not this time. Lundqvist and the Rangers continued their mastery of extending their season. New York is 11-2 in the past 13 games when facing elimination, and Lundqvist was in goal for all of them. Madison Square Garden had a different feel than the festive atmosphere of Game 3 when the Rangers returned home from Los Angeles. There were no T-shirts draped over the seats, and some of the seats in prime-viewing areas were empty. But as the Rangers started to score, the crowd slowly came alive, roaring in approval. NOTES: Four NHL teams have overcome a 3-0 hole to win a series. ... Kings RW Justin Williams had a six-game assist streak snapped. ... This was the 92nd game played in this year’s postseason, tying an NHL record that will be broken with Game 5. ... The Kings have led for only 40:01 in the four games.

Aaron Hill homered in the fourth for Arizona’s only extra-base hit. PIRATES 4, CUBS 2 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Andrew McCutchen homered and reached base four times to help Pittsburgh beat Chicago. Pittsburgh pounded Jason Hammel (6-4) for 11 hits in five innings, snapping his streaks of 14 1-3 innings without allowing a run and 52 innings without allowing a homer when McCutchen hit his 10th in the first. Brandon Cumpton (2-2) pitched five effective innings for the Pirates. The first pitch was delayed 1 hour, 38 minutes because of a thunderstorm. ROYALS 4, INDIANS 1 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Yordano Ventura dominated Cleveland for seven stingy innings, and Kansas City scored all of its runs on sacrifice flies. The four sacrifice flies tied a franchise record, and the Royals became only the second team to score four runs all on sacrifice flies since it became an official stat in 1954. The Montreal Expos did it in an 8-4, 14-inning loss to the Chicago Cubs on May 28, 1980, according to STATS. Ventura (4-5) allowed six hits while striking out three without a walk to win back-to-back starts for the first time. Trevor Bauer (1-3) took the loss. Kansas City has won four straight. YANKEES 4, MARINERS 2 SEATTLE (AP) — Masahiro Tanaka struck out 11 and became the second pitcher in the majors with 10 wins, throwing a complete game for New York. Tanaka (10-1) won his fourth straight start. He was two outs away from his second shutout before giving up a two-run homer to Robinson Cano in the ninth. Tanaka allowed six hits and walked one. He tied for the wins lead with Toronto’s Mark Buehrle, who is 10-2. New York’s Jacoby Ellsbury extended his hitting streak to 15 games with an RBI single in the third. Two innings later, with Seattle starter Chris Young (5-4) struggling, Mark Teixeira hit a three-run homer that barely cleared the wall in rightcenter field. The game-breaking shot was Teixeira’s 11th homer of the season. NATIONALS 6, GIANTS 2 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Jayson Werth hit his first homer in almost a month and drove in three runs, and Washington capitalized on Matt Cain’s erratic start to earn its fourth straight win. Cain (1-4) walked the first three batters he faced before Adam LaRoche’s two-run single highlighted a three-run first inning. Werth’s solo shot in the fifth and two-run single in the ninth provided the rest of the pop for the Nationals, who have won 10 of 12, including the last three at San Francisco. Tanner Roark (5-4) allowed two runs and seven hits in six-plus innings for Washington. He struck out four and walked none. Brandon Crawford and Pablo Sandoval each drove in a run for the Giants, who have lost a season-high tying three straight. ATHLETICS 7, ANGELS 1 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Stephen Vogt hit his first home run of the season, a two-run shot against Jered Weaver, and Oakland increased its AL West lead over Los Angeles to 3 ½ games. Tommy Milone (4-3) allowed a run and six hits in 6 2-3 innings with four strikeouts and two walks. The left-hander is 4-0 with a 2.00 ERA in his last seven starts overall, and 4-0 with a 3.54 ERA in five career starts at Angel Stadium. Weaver (7-5) gave up four runs and six hits through 5 1-3 innings in his 14th start, matching his shortest outing of the season. In his last two starts against Oakland, the three-time All-Star has allowed nine earned runs in 11 1-3 innings.

Annie’s Mailbox By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar

Should Have Listened Dear Annie: I’ve known “Ted” all my life. About 10 years ago, I loaned him $1,000. He never repaid it, and I could really use that money now. Ted lives in a different city, and when I phone him, he refuses to discuss it. In the past, I had given Ted money outright, but this was absolutely a loan. I made sure he knew that, but I didn’t ask for a promissory note or any interest. If I hire a lawyer to sue him for the loan, I’d lose half the money paying the lawyer. Ted’s mother once warned me not to loan money to friends. What can I do? -- Should Have Listened Dear Should: You could try to retrieve the money by suing Ted in small-claims court. You generally don’t need an attorney to do this, but you are likely to lose the friendship permanently. You might want to warn Ted in advance that this is your intent if he isn’t willing to discuss the loan and reach an agreement. Dear Annie: You get lots of letters from husbands or wives who are unhappy and asking, “What went wrong?” Maybe the trouble is that while they were planning a wedding they forgot to plan a marriage. I performed my first marriage ceremony 60 years ago and have done several hundred since. Some were in large churches with fancy flowers, string quartets and an exquisite reception. Some were in my living room with only the bride and groom in their Sunday clothes. There is quite a difference between a wedding and a marriage. A wedding is the civil and/or religious ceremony that ends in the signing of a certificate making the whole thing legal. A marriage is a covenant between two people who promise to love, honor and cherish each other. My advice to any couple planning the kind of wedding they will have is to first ask what kind of marriage they will have. -- Retired Methodist Minister in Texas Dear Minister: It’s true that some couples are so focused on the trappings of a wedding that they don’t give enough thought to what comes after. And what comes after is meant to last a very long time. Dear Annie: Your advice to “Upset Mom in USA” made me angry. She said her son was accused of stealing a ring from his cousin when he briefly stayed at his aunt’s house. This son is a financially secure 32-year-old businessman, not a teenage boy bicycling around Europe. The missing ring is between him and his cousin. In addition to the possibility that the niece simply misplaced the ring, it could also be a setup. The aunt called her nephew, not his mother. Mom has no place in this contretemps, yet you advised her to speak to her son when he returns, and even suggested she offer to split the cost of the ring. Why should Mom offer anything if her son is innocent? If she in any way admits that her son is at fault, it will poison the relationship between her and her son. And if he did steal the ring, he should pay the full cost. Either way, it is not Mom’s place to fix it, and you should have said so. -- Annoyed at You Dear Annoyed: Our concern, actually, was not the son or the ring. It was the relationship between the sisters. You are absolutely right that the son is responsible for working this out, and we should have said so. But we also know how difficult it is for a parent to stand by and watch a family situation deteriorate over such accusations. Even though the issue is between the cousins, we suspect Mom fears losing the affection of her sister, and that is where our advice was directed. (Although the idea that this might be a setup did not occur to us. Heavens.)

MOCK APPLE PIE Dear Heloise: You have a recipe for an apple pie that doesn’t actually contain apples. Can you please reprint it? -- Callie H. in Oregon This Heloise’s Mock Apple Pie is delicious, and you’re right -- it has no apples in it! Gather the following ingredients: * Pastry for a double-crusted 9-inch pie * 2 cups water * 1 1/4 cups sugar * 2 teaspoons cream of tartar * 20 regular, salted, single-stack, square saltine crackers * Butter (for dotting) * Ground cinnamon (for sprinkling) Preheat the oven to 375 F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan with the pastry. In a saucepan (medium size), boil the water, sugar and cream of tartar. Add the soda crackers and boil, but ONLY for 1 minute. Spoon the mixture gently into the pie shell. Dot the top with butter, and sprinkle with some cinnamon to taste. Cover the pie with the top crust and cut vents into it. Bake for 35 minutes. Let the pie cool completely before cutting into it. This recipe and more are in my Heloise’s All-Time Favorite Recipes pamphlet, which you can order by sending $5 and a long, selfaddressed, stamped (70 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Recipes, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. -- Heloise KEEP FRESH Dear Heloise: When you open a container of ice cream, before you put the lid back on, put a piece of waxed paper over it. It will be just like when you first opened it. -- Betty B. in Ohio

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, June 12, 2014: This year you are able to make a difference in what goes on in your immediate environment. Unexpected news from a friend could surprise you, but it also allows you to look at a new possibility. If you are single, you will meet people with ease, especially after July. Your popularity will soar at that point. If you are attached, you might be surprised at the controversy that surrounds a child. Try to prevent a problem before it happens. Know that your significant other might be more grounded than you realize. SAGITTARIUS always adds lightness to the moment.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH You might feel that a partner is overly assertive at present. Understand that you are more than capable of handling this person’s energy right now. You need to be more aware of how much you are spending. Fatigue could mark an interaction. Tonight: Too much to juggle. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH You will have the best intentions, but somehow you’ll get stuck in a difficult or awkward interaction. A discussion about money could get out of hand, and you might want to drown your sorrows in some wild spending. Say “no.” Tonight: Try to keep a lid on a volatile situation. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You will be out of control, swinging from one wild situation to another. Today’s Full Moon might bring chaos into a relationship. Know when enough is enough. You could be causing yourself a problem if you continue with a heated discussion. Tonight: Accept an offer. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Pace yourself, and do what you must. Your emotions might make you feel as if you can’t reach a resolution. If you tap into your logical side, others will think that you make sense; however, they still might head in a different direction. Tonight: Get some much-needed rest. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Your imagination takes a different stance on what is being discussed. You could have difficulty following through on a key task because your mind is elsewhere. A sticky situation involving your personal life might not be resolved easily. Tonight: Play the night away. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH You will need to anchor in and work through a problem involving a misunderstanding. Be aware that others are likely to overreact. A child or new friend could express his or her caring. Do not push someone too hard. Tonight: Discuss a potential trip with a loved one. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH Do not put off a call for too long. Make it happen today; otherwise, the results won’t be nearly as good. You’ll have a lot of energy; use it to make a situation work better for you. You could be surprised by what a partner does. Listen to news more openly. Tonight: Visit with a pal. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHH Be aware of the costs of continuing as you have been. Ask questions. Someone is likely to respond in kind and give you an explanation. You’ll see that you can mend a fence, but you might wonder whether you really want to. Tonight: Treat a loved one to dinner. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You will feel as if you are in your element and able to achieve much more of what you want. Your energy is high as is your charisma. You can’t be stopped once you get going. You naturally dominate anything you decide to do. Tonight: Extend an invitation to a friend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHH Know what is happening behind the scenes. You might choose to share more than you normally do. Expect the unexpected, and you will not be thrown off-kilter. If you are single, someone you meet today could become a lot more to you. Tonight: Go with the flow. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH Zero in on priorities during a meeting. You’ll find that you are juggling two different situations. Realize that one or both situations could become explosive. Know what you want from each one. You might be put in a position of making a fast decision. Tonight: Ever
