Recording country songs since age 12, Gearing has spent a decade growing up in the music industry. She said the transition to more adult songs and a sexier image has been natural, partly because she leads a “pretty normal” life. “I graduated from college and I go to work every day and although my job is writing songs and singing so it’s pretty unique, it’s just normal for me,” said Gearing. Gearing said the Westfield performance is not part of a tour, but a special show for her hometown. “It’s so comforting to perform in Westfield – and New England,” she said. “Everyone welcomes me with open arms. It’s comforting to be around the people who have rooted for me since I was 8 years-old.” Gearing said she is looking forward to seeing family and friends and is excited to perform here. “The last time I was there, the Green wasn’t even done yet,” she said. “I’m

Voc-Tech aviation project seeks support By Peter Francis Staff Writer WESTFIELD – On Monday, a group looking to restore the second hangar at Barnes Regional Airport went before the city of Westfield’s Historical Commission to gain support for the project. Renovating the hangar is of great interest to Westfield Vocational-Technical High School’s Aviation Advisory Board, which includes Barnes Regional Airport Manager Brian Barnes and Westfield VocationalTechnical Principal Stefan Czaporowski, as it would serve as the home for a proposed Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) maintenance program at Voc-Tech. “We’re seeking some funding from the community preservation commission to restore hangar two, which was built in 1939. It has fallen into disrepair and needs to be fixed,” said Barnes. He added the board is composed of over 20 city business and education leaders who are lobbying hard to make the maintenance program a reality. “I’m on the subcommittee for property, and we’re taking a look at that,” said Barnes, who feels the hangar can fill multiple roles.
“We can restore it historically, give it a tie to the past, and allow it to provide a function for the school. If we leave it like it is, it’s either going to be torn down or just sit the way it is till it deteriorates.” “We can’t go forward unless the historical commission deemed it a historical hangar, which they did,” he said. “Without their support, it would be hard to go to the preservation committee and say ‘this is a really good idea.’” Barnes described the commission as “very receptive, warm, and positive” about the group’s presentation. “I haven’t seen an official reply – they were going to write a letter and let us know – but I completely anticipate that they’re going to support us,” he said, adding that he’s preparing a presentation for the next preservation committee on July 10. Ken Dromgold, a corporate pilot for Bradley International Airport who has flown with Barnes in the past, has been selected to chair the board that is bringing the A&P program to Westfield Voc-Tech. “We’re hoping to introduce it (A&P) into the curriculum, and then there would be a lot more added to it.

Councilors reject most budget cuts
Gearing to perform hometown concert By Hope E. Tremblay Staff Writer WESTFIELD – Country singing sensation Ashley Gearing is heading home this summer. Gearing, who grew up in Westfield, will perform with fellow country artist David Fanning on Thursday, June 26 at 7:30 p.m. on the Green in Westfield. The concert is part of the free summer concert series Music Fest Westfield. Gearing is well-known as western Massachusetts’ country sweetheart, but now she is all grown-up. She is getting ready to release her next album, which reflects her life as an adult. “This will be my first major album,” said Gearing. “I’m being really particular about it because now that I’m 23, I guess this is my coming-of-age album.” Gearing said people here see her as that young girl who got her start locally, but she now lives in Nashville and has been writing and recording practically around the clock to get her album ready.
graduates, they’ll have their A&P licensing,” Dromgold said. “We’ve got some extremely talented folks on this board, with Brian (Barnes), Joe Mitchell (City Advancement Director), Sean Peterson from Embraer (Executive Jet Services), and Fran Ahern from GulfStream, among others.” Dromgold said the board has subdivided into finance, real estate, and technical committees, handling the project’s fundraising, building, and curriculum needs. “The real estate side is moving along at a lightning pace, finance and technical are doing the same,” he said, adding that the board is now searching for a consultant to ‘take charge, embrace it, and run with it.’ “We had our initial meeting with the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) about 10 days ago. We’re having another one on the 24th and one shortly thereafter.” Dromgold said that, as these meetings proceed, there are certain goals and steps which will need to be met, but that the project’s Principal Operations and Maintenance Inspector Jim Edwards has been ‘a guiding light’ for the board thus far.

By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The City Council members meeting as a Committee of the Whole found a way to cut Mayor Daniel M. Knapik’s proposed budget and yet maintain the integrity of departmental operations. The councilors reviewed the budget with a specific goal, to lower a tax rate increase well below the 2 ½ percent allowed by state law, but they wanted a package that will not force layoffs or cuts in city services. The Councilors started with approval of a $500 cut in their own little used in-state travel line item, then quickly rejected three cuts of $5,000, $5,000 and $3,000 to line items in the mayor’s BRIAN P. Christopher office. SULLIVAN M. Crean The Council did vote to approve a $326,167 cut in the Purchasing Department, money for the first year of a five-year contract with Siemens, the energy consultant which recently completed a $23 million upgrade to the energy systems in school and municipal buildings. Those upgrades involved 1,500 pieces of major equipment in 23 facilities under the city’s energy management program. The council members object to that funding because the maintenance contract was not publishedas a separate, and competitive, bid and was included in the original contract awarded to Siemens. The cost of the contract will increase to $340,000 next year and continue to escalate over the fiveyear term. That cut was approved by a 10-2 vote. Ward 6 Councilor Christopher Crean argued against that cut. “We’ve invested millions of dollars in our school and municipal buildings,” he said. “One of the problems for years has been the lack of maintenance.” At-large Council James R. Adams said that there is a proposal to create an in-house facilities and grounds maintenance department now under consideration by the council’s See Cuts, Page 3
Council slashes budget with tax levy in mind By Dan Moriarty Staff Writer WESTFIELD – The City Council members reviewed the budget with the goal of lowering the tax levy in November without having to use free cash or new tax revenue to prop up the tax rate. Mayor Daniel M. Knapik has proposed a 2015 fiscal year budget that relies on both new tax revenue and the use of free cash. Knapik’s budget package uses an estimated $340,000 in revenue from two new local taxes, that the Council has yet to approve, on meals and hotel rooms, and $2,140,000 from the city’s free cash account, to balance his budMAYOR get. The council members, attending a DANIEL M. 4.5 hour marathon Committee of the KNAPIK Whole session, cut $3,711,439, with the expectation that much of that spending will be added back into the budget during the course of the 2015 fiscal year which begins July 1. The largest budget cut approved by the council members on a 10-2 vote was to slash $3,232,772, roughly 25 percent or three months premium payments, from the city’s Health Insurance line item. At-Large Councilors Dan Allie and David Flaherty presented arguments to support that vote. Allie argued that between the $2.4 million now in free cash, $4.2 million in stabilization, $4.18 million in a bond rebate of which $3.5 million becomes available to the general fund on July 1, he estimates that between $10.5 and $12.5 will be available at the end of the current fiscal year on June 30 to replenish departmental line items later in the year.

Mass. priest baffled by vestment theft GARDNER, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts priest says he’s baffled by a theft from his church in which the only things taken were priestly vestments and other nearly valueless items. WBZ-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1yifIHW ) reports that no money, no religious artifacts, and nothing of major value was taken in the theft from St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church in Gardner. Police arrested three 22-year-old city men after someone reported seeing someone wearing the vestments inside an abandoned building. They’re charged with receiving stolen property, and breaking and entering. The Rev. Thomas Tokarz says he forgives the men, but still wants to know why they took what they did. Police say they have a motive, but are not making it public until they finish the investigation. They do say the motive was not anti-religious. The church’s property has been returned.

Cuts Continued from Page 1
Budget Continued from Page 1 “We will have $10.5 million in December for health insurance, in the meantime the mayor will have nine months to work on this budget and he could still make the monthly premium payments,” Allie said. “Let’s put the ball in the mayor’s court to find a way to put the money back.” Flaherty said the council needs to take a lesson from Knapik’s budgeting practices. “During the whole budget review departments have been telling us that the mayor reduced or zeroed out line items and that they will be coming back to us looking for free cash appropriations,” Flaherty said. “It’s a shell game.” “So let’s play the same game as the mayor to help the city’s taxpayers,” Flaherty said. Mary O’Connell said her goal is to make as little an increase in
property taxes, the city’s primary source of revenue because of chronic cuts in the levels of state aid, as possible when the council votes in November to set the tax levy. “I really like that suggestion,” O’Connell said following Allie’s presentation. “If this gets us to a lower (tax) increase, let’s roll on it. “We know we can’t deal with cutting or lowering the tax rate in November,” O’Connell said. “This is the time to do that. “We’re trying to maintain some control over the tax levy. Flaherty said the $3.709 million cut “gives us the ultimate flexibility when we set the tax levy.” Flaherty said that cut will enable the City Council to approve a tax rate increase of a half of a percent, rather than the 2 ½ percent required by Knapik’s budget.
Legislative & Ordinance Committee to “take over” those maintenance duties. The next proposed cut of $10,000 in the Law Department’s purchases of services was also rejected by a 10-2 vote. At-large Councilor Brian Sullivan said that Knapik had already cut that line item by $45,000, while At-large Councilor David A. Flaherty argued that the money is for an attorney outside the office who litigates cases for the city and who “is doing a great job.” The next proposed cut, also in the Law Department was also rejected by a 9-3 vote. The rejected motion was to cut $18,000 from the department’s judgment account, leaving that funding at $20,000. The next motion, to cut $75,000 from the Technology Centers capital equipment account was withdrawn without a vote after further discussion of why that $125,00 line item will be used. The primary cost center is new software and licensing fees for program to protect the city’s computer system. The next motion to cut $180,000 from the Community Preservation Committees capital account was withdrawn after a discussion of how that funding is raised and expended. The councilors did cut $10,000, on a 9-3 vote, from the Westfield Redevelopment Authority account, reducing that funding level to zero. Flaherty, who made the motion, said the Mayor had reduced the line item by $490,000, leaving the $10,000 which “is so trivial that it’s useless’ and suggested that City Advancement Officer Joseph Mitchell come back before the council for a larger appropriation. The next motion to cut $19,000 from the Police Department’s purchase of services, which includes fuel, was rejected on a voice vote after a heated debate. The councilors did vote to cut $81,177 from the Fire Department ambulance salary account, rejecting a proposal to create another Deputy Chief’s position for the emergency medical services (EMS) division. That cut had no impact on the tax levy since it is a revenue generating account and the cut simply drops into the ambulance undesignated account. The councilors rejected a similar cut from the ambulance fund full-time hourly account. The motion was rejected 5-7 in the first roll call of the evening. That money will be used to hire three additional EMS paramedics/firefighters to bring each of the department four groups up to a full complement of 18 people. The next motion was to cut $500,000 from the school budget, a cut that was then modified to $412,000, and approved by a 7-5 vote, then unapproved on a reconsideration vote which ended 6-6 meaning that the cut failed. Several councilors said they intend to bring it out again tonight when the council votes on the budgets as amended last night. The councilors approved other cuts, of $200,000 in the transfer station account; $10,000 in the Engineering Department construction account,; $E10,000 in the Public Works Department stormwater construction account; and $31,000 in the stormwater salary account. The biggest cut was $3,232,772 from the health insurance premium account to achieve the goal of reducing a tax levy increase to a half of one percent.

Senate to Biden: We want Clinton By Manu Raju Politico.com This is Joe Biden’s reality after nearly four decades in the Senate, countless fundraisers for his party and endless ego-massaging of his colleagues: Not a single Democratic senator, including the two from his home state, are publicly urging him to run for president. And this is Hillary Clinton’s lot: A majority of current Democratic senators are calling on her to run in 2016, years before the election and months before she’s expected to even make up her mind whether to seek the White House again. That despite the fact that her eight years in the Senate ended with more than a dozen colleagues spurning her presidential campaign in favor of a younger upstart senator from Illinois. Such deep support for a potential candidate this early on, practically unheard of in presidential politics, reflects the deep hold Clinton has over her party and the sense among senators that there are no other viable options to keep the presidency in Democratic hands. But the fact that senators with whom he worked alongside for decades wouldn’t at least stay on the sidelines so long before the election — as Biden is openly flirting with a run in 2016 — is also a personal and political repudiation of the vice president. Under the traditional rules of politics, Biden could presumably count on at least some of his fellow Senate Democrats. He spent more than three decades as a Delaware senator, raising big bucks for his Senate colleagues, teaming up on legislation and yukking it up in countless private lunches and dinners. But those friendships only go so far. Interviews with influential senators, Democratic leaders and senior aides show Clinton is the runaway choice of the 55-member Senate Democratic Caucus for 2016. Even the two Delaware senators hedged when asked whether they wanted Biden to run. Another old friend of Biden, Sen. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, said in an interview that she recently reached out to the vice president to let him know she was backing Clinton. “I think the vice president is terrific, but I think it’s Hillary’s time,” Stabenow said. Asked how Biden responded, Stabenow added: “He respects my decision.” The decision to jump behind Clinton so early is part cold political calculation, part private frustration that lawmakers have with President Barack Obama. Most Democratic senators believe Clinton is the party’s best — perhaps only — hope of holding the White House. But Biden also seems to be saddled with a growing weariness in Senate Democratic circles with his boss. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), a close ally of the White House, said the prospect of Biden running in 2016 “of course” crossed his mind when he threw his support behind Clinton recently. “I think the world of Joe Biden; he’s done a great job as senator and vice president,” said Durbin, who headlined a Chicago fundraiser earlier this month for the pro-Clinton super PAC, Ready for Hillary. “I think it’s Hillary’s moment.” Biden aides declined to comment. People close to the vice president say he isn’t letting the Clinton bandwagon affect his time frame. But some concede that watching the parade of endorsements has stung at times. The early show of support for Clinton carries its own political risks. If she were to forgo a run, Biden — or other possible candidates like Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley or former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer — would be seen as the party’s second or third choice in 2016. Moreover, Clinton has her own political baggage, from the scandals of her husband’s administration to the Benghazi attacks on her watch as secretary of state. Clinton’s performance since 2008 — when many Democratic senators, ready for a new face, opted for Obama instead of her for president — has vastly improved her standing in the Senate. It helps, of course, that they think she can win. “I think there’s a strong view in our caucus that Hillary would be a very, very strong, formidable candidate and president,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said when asked about Biden and Clinton. Schumer announced his support for Clinton in November. Some Senate Democrats, such as Majority Leader Harry Reid — who said recently, “I love the Clintons” — have suggested an openness to seeing a Democratic primary in 2016. But it’s unclear whether that would happen. While close friends of the vice president say he wants to run for president, he is widely seen as unlikely to challenge Clinton should she take the plunge in 2016. But if he did seek to run against Clinton in a primary, it’s clear he’d have to mount an insurgent campaign against the party establishment — a remarkable turn considering Biden has spent his career in Washington and loyally served under Obama for two terms. Clinton has her own friendships in the Senate as well. But Biden’s history in the body is much deeper — he served for 36 years, serving as chairman and top Democrat of both the Judiciary and Foreign Relations committees.
Redskins stripped of trademarks By Jonathan Topaz and Lucy McCalmont Politico.com In a major blow to the Washington Redskins, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Wednesday canceled six federal trademarks of the team name because it was found to be “disparaging” to Native Americans. “We decide, based on the evidence properly before us, that these registrations must be cancelled because they were disparaging to Native Americans at the respective times they were registered,” the Patent Office’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board wrote in a 2-1 decision. The Redskins’ team name has become a divisive political issue over the past few years, with even President Barack Obama saying the club should consider changing it. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Democrats also have pressed owner Dan Snyder to change the name. On the other side, conservatives have either defended keeping the name, arguing that it isn’t a slur, or been silent on the uproar. The trademark attorney for the Redskins, Bob Raskopf, downplayed the ruling and vowed the team will win an ensuing appeal. “We’ve seen this story before. And just like last time, today’s ruling will have no effect at all on the team’s ownership of and right to use the Redskins name and logo,” he said in a statement, citing rulings in 1999 and 2003. “We are confident we will prevail once again, and that the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board’s divided ruling will be overturned on appeal.” Reid lauded the trademark decision on the Senate floor Wednesday, saying it reinforces the push for the Redskins to change the name. Reid called the name a “sad reminder” of the bigotry Native Americans have faced and said the issue “is extremely important to Native Americans all across the country.” “Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this, but it’s just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and change the name,” he said. “The writing is on the wall,” Reid added. “It’s on the wall in giant, blinking, neon lights.” The majority leader also praised the work of Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), the former Senate Indian Affairs Committee Chairwoman who has been a major leader on the issue. She spoke on the Senate floor to hail the “landmark decision.” “This is not the end of this case, but this is a landmark decision by the Patent Office that says that the NFL team here in Washington, D.C., does not have a patentable name, and that this is an offensive term not patentable by the Patent Office,” she said. Senate Indian Affairs Committee Chairman Jon Tester (D-Mont.) also hailed the ruling, saying on Twitter: “This decision is a step forward for Indian Country & for all Americans who champion tolerance.” Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.), a vocal critic of the team name, slammed Snyder for trying to have the decision overturned. “I don’t know how many times he needs to be told that the name is disparaging. I understand he says he’s going to appeal. Shame on him,” she said in an interview. “I mean, does he like losing?” Norton had co-sponsored a bill last year to amend the 1946 Lanham Act, the law that prohibits the registration of trademarks that disparage any group. Her legislation would include “redskins” as a disparaging term if it is contained in a trademark with connotations to the Native American community. A National Football League spokesperson said the league would not be issuing a separate statement from the team. Five Native Americans in 2006 brought the petition Blackhorse v. Pro Football, Inc., aimed at stripping the team’s half-dozen
trademark registrations for the term “Redskins.” “I hope this ruling brings us a step closer to that inevitable day when the name of the Washington football team will be changed,” said plaintiff Amanda Blackhorse. “The team’s name is racist and derogatory.” Critics of the name who had turned to the trademark office note that the ruling does not stop the organization from continuing to use the term. But it could potentially devalue it because anyone would be able to use the unprotected name, meaning that companies not affiliated with the team could, for instance, print and sell T-shirts, posters and whatever other products they wanted without having to share any revenues with the Redskins’ owner. Under the trademark office’s decision, the NFL also will lose several benefits of federal registration of the trademark, including the use of the federal registration symbol. “The Trademark Trial and Appeal Board agreed with our clients that the team’s name and trademarks disparage Native Americans,” said Jesse Witten, lead attorney for the Native Americans. “The Board ruled that the Trademark Office should never have registered these trademarks in the first place.” In his dissent, Judge Marc Bergsman said the Native Americans hadn’t proved their case. “By this dissent, I am not suggesting that the term ‘redskins’ was not disparaging in 1967, 1974, 1978, and 1990 (the registration dates at issue). Rather, my conclusion is that the evidence petitioners put forth fails to show that it was,” Bergsman’s dissent read. The Redskins can appeal the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C., or file a civil action in District Court. The trademark office faced a similar case brought against the team in the 1990s, when, despite ruling in favor of that Native American group several years later, the board’s decision was eventually thrown out in court on an appeal. The Oneida Indian Nation and the National Congress of American Indians, two groups that have led the campaign to change the team’s name, released a statement applauding the ruling. “The U.S. Patent Office has now restated the obvious truth that Native Americans, civil rights leaders, athletes, religious groups, state legislative bodies, members of Congress and the president have all echoed: taxpayer resources cannot be used to help private companies profit off the promotion of dictionary defined racial slurs,” Oneida leader Ray Halbritter and NCAI Executive Director Jackie Pata said in a joint statement. In May, 50 senators — 48 Democrats and two independents — wrote NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell urging him to change the name. “The N.F.L. can no longer ignore this and perpetuate the use of this name as anything but what it is: a racial slur,” the letter read. The letter, spearheaded by Cantwell, was not circulated among Republicans. The NFL shot down the letter later that day, saying the team wants to portray a “strong, positive and respectful image” with the name. Obama also weighed in on the name last October, saying he would consider changing it. “If I were the owner of the team and I knew that there was a name of my team — even if it had a storied history — that was offending a sizable group of people, I’d think about changing it,” he said. ——— Josh Gerstein contributed to this report.

After uproar, St. Louis paper drops Will column By Kendall Breitman Politico.com The St. Louis Post-Dispatch has dropped columnist George Will and told readers that his provocative column on sexual assault on college campuses was a factor in the decision. “The change has been under consideration for several months, but a column published June 5, in which Mr. Will suggested that sexual assault victims on college campuses enjoy a privileged status, made the decision easier,” the editor’s note read. “The column was offensive and inaccurate; we apologize for publishing it.” The newspaper also used the note to announce that it will be replacing Will’s spot with Michael Gerson, a Washington Post columnist and former speechwriter and top aide to former President George W. Bush.
“We have heard from both conservative and liberal readers asking for new conservative voices,” the note said. “We believe Mr. Gerson’s addition to our op-ed page will be a refreshing and revitalizing change.” Will’s column caused an uproar with its reference to the “supposed campus epidemic of rape, a.k.a. ‘sexual assault’” and that universities “make victimhood a coveted status” that “confers privileges.” Groups such as The National Organization for Women slammed the columnist for his opinions and a hashtag, #SurvivorPrivilege, began as a result where people would tweet sarcastically on privileges they were given for experiencing sexual assault. The Washington Post defended Will, calling his column “well within bounds of legitimate debate.”

(Neil) Simon Says Neil Simon is one of America’s funniest and most prolific playwrights. In his 50-plus years of making theatre and movie audiences laugh, he’s written over 30 plays and about as many screen plays, plus he’s received more Tony and Oscar nominations than any American writer to date. At one point in his early career, he had four Broadway hits running simultaneously on Broadway. Two Simon classics visit area stages this summer. “Laughter on the 23rd Floor” opens Northampton’s New Century Theatre’s 2014 summer season (June 19-29). Sam Rush, the theatre’s artistic director, stages the comedy which is inspired by Simon’s own experience as a staff writer on the late Sid Caesar’s “Your Show of Shows”. Simon bases his characters after his fellow funny-men writers like Mel Brooks and Larry Gelbart, “Laughter on the 23rd Floor” had a successful Broadway run, starring Nathan Lane. New Century Theatre performs on the Smith College campus. For tickets: 413-585-3220 or www.newcenturytheatre.org. Connecticut Repertory Theatre revives Simon’s very funny “The Sunshine Boys”, a comedy about an old vaudeville comedy duo, Lewis and Clark. (June 19-28). Over their 40-plus year career, Lewis and Clark grew to loathe each other, and they never spoke off-stage. Now, some well-meaning folk try to get them back together for a one night stand. Jerry Adler

Goo Goo Dolls wow the Oakdale By MIKE Augusti Correspondent WALLINGFORD, Conn. — Goo Goo Dolls kicked off their summer tour at the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford , CT on last night to a very excited and loud crowd. The Dolls touring in support of their 2013 release Magnetic wowed their fans with a twenty five song set filled with hits. The Dolls took the stage at 9:15 and kicked off the set with Lazy Eye, which was originally recorded for the 1997 Batman film starring George Clooney. They quickly moved in to playing Dizzy and Slide before taking a breather and talking to the fans. It’s hard to believe that this band started in 1986 as a punk band out of Buffalo . Almost 30 years later, this former punk band now tours the world, have sold over 10 million records which have produced 14 top ten singles and continue to impress with their live shows…talk about coming a long way. Big Machine off 2002’s Gutteflower release came next followed by four new songs including their initial single off Magnetic, Rebel Beat. One of the highlights of the new songs was Come to Me as the band’s backdrop turned into a scramble of letters that highlighted specific words in each verse of the song. This was a cool addition to the stage show that had the audience searching for the next word to be highlighted. Lead singer Johnny Reznik took a few minutes out of the set to thank the fans for coming out for them and supporting them by buying their releases. Reznik mentioned bass player Robby Takic’s name and stated, who would have thought people would come out to see a couple of polish guys from Buffalo. With that, the band played crowd favorite Black Balloon as some fans in the audience had black balloons ready to send in the air and bounce around the audience. Reznik got into the act and actually caught a few of the balloons, one of which took him by surprise as he missed a word or two of the song by grabbing it. The rest of the set was a combination of new songs off of Magnetic and some Goo Goo Dolls classics including Here is Gone, January
Friend, Better Days, Iris. Also in the mix was a cover of Supertramp’s Give a Little Bit, which now seems to be a staple in their live show. The band finished out the night with Let Love In. The Goo Goo Dolls took a few minutes before coming out for a two song encore and played Name and Broadway before truly calling it a night. These were great songs to end the night and a great show to kick off the tour. They will be in Boston mid-August…so go buy your ticket and check them out! It’s hard to believe that this band started in 1986 as a punk band out of Buffalo New York . Almost 30 years later, this former punk band now tours the world, have sold over 10 million records which have produced 14 top ten singles and continue to impress with their live shows…talk about coming a long way.

St. Jean, ITI solid in Amanti Cup opener By Chris Putz Staff Writer WESTFIELD – No. 5 ITI kicked off the 2014 Westfield Babe Ruth Baseball Amanti Cup in a big, big way. ITI belted out 11 runs in the tournament opener, upending fourth-seeded Kiwanis, 11-7, Wednesday night at Bullens Field. ITI starting pitcher Sam St. Jean tossed a one-hitter through four innings before turning it over to the bullpen for the final three. ITI’s offense staked St. Jean to a 3-0, firstinning lead. Andrew Tobias led off the game with a single, stole second base, and St. Jean walked. A fielder’s choice (Nate Boulay RBI) made it 1-0. With two outs, Mike Nihill hit a deep blast to right field that resulted in a two-run double. Cam Davignon singled through the right side, driving in the inning’s third run. ITI tacked on four more runs in the fourth inning and two in the fifth to take a commanding 9-0 lead. In the fourth, Scott Bussell and Chris Torres had the big hits, RBI singles. Elliot Avery’s bases loaded walk in the ninth made it 9-0. Kiwanis fought back.

The team took advantage of some mental breakdowns by ITI, and collected runscoring hits from Colin Johnson, Mason Kowal, Colton Baker, and Hunter Authier to climb within 9-5. Both teams exchanged two runs each in the final inning.
The game was just one of many slated to take place at Bullens Field over the next several days. The Dan Welch City Cup begins tomorrow with Sons of Erin vs. McDonald’s at 5 p.m., followed by Police-Advance Manufacturing at 7:30. Tournament games will continue tonight and through the weekend, culminating with championships June 24-25.

Napoli, Ortiz homeruns in 10th, Red Sox rally past Twins By KEN POWTAK Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz went from gesturing up at an official scorer one at-bat earlier to pumping his fist toward his teammates after his game-tying homer. Three pitches later, he was hugging Mike Napoli at home plate after his teammate’s winning home run. Napoli and Ortiz hit consecutive homers with one out in the 10th inning and the Boston Red Sox rallied past Minnesota 2-1 Wednesday, sending the Twins to their fifth straight loss. “We haven’t been able to produce. Our pitching has been outstanding lately, but we haven’t been able to hit,” Ortiz said. “To come back and win the game, that was big.” Boston was held to one hit — a fifth-inning double by Daniel Nava — before the homers. The Twins took a 1-0 lead in the top of the 10th on Chris Parmelee’s two-out home run off Red Sox closer Koji Uehara (2-1). But after Dustin Pedroia flied out to begin the Boston 10th, the Red Sox connected against Casey Fien (3-4) to complete a threegame sweep. Twins closer Glen Perkins was unavailable with a sore back. Ortiz hit his drive down the right-field line and pumped his right fist toward the dugout as he headed toward first base. Napoli hit his shot into the center-field bleachers. Three innings earlier, Ortiz felt like he had a hit taken away when he reached on what was ruled an error by official scorer Bob Ellis after the ball deflected off first baseman Joe Mauer’s glove in the seventh inning. When he walked off the field following Napoli’s double-play grounder, Ortiz was glaring and waving his arm up at the press box. “You hope they have your back at home and it never happens,” Ortiz said. “I’ve been here more than a decade and the scoring, it’s home, man. What do you want Mauer to do? He dove for the ball. He knocked it down.” “I always look like I’m the bad guy, but they always end up changing it. It’s not that we need to check on Papi. Check on the scorer to see what he’s doing wrong,” he said. Earlier this year, Major League Baseball changed a scorer’s ruling and later gave Ortiz a single in a game in which Yu Darvish had a no-hit bid for Texas. Parmelee also had two singles as Minnesota finished a 3-6 road trip. “We’re glad we’re going home,” Parmelee said. “It’s kind of tough end to the long road trip, but we’re headed home and we’re excited to get back home.” Uehara had a scoreless streak snapped at 21 2/3 innings when Parmelee homered into the Red Sox bullpen over the leap of right fielder Brock Holt. “Unfortunately, one extra split to Parmelee gives them the upper hand, but a dramatic finish on our part,” Boston manager John Farrell said. “David comes up big once again.” Like the previous two games of the series, both one-run wins by Boston, neither team had much offense going. The Twins entered the day with seven combined hits and one run in the first two games and Boston scored just three total runs. The Red Sox were on the verge of being shut out until the improbable ending. “It’s the worst feeling in the world,” Fien said. “When you’ve got a pitching staff that threw like that and then they ask me to come up big and do my part. You come out with the ‘L.’ It’s not a good feeling.” Boston’s John Lackey and Minnesota’s Kyle Gibson kept up the trend with strong pitching performances. Lackey gave up three singles over nine
innings, striking out nine and walking one. He’s allowed three or fewer runs in six straight starts, and 12th of 15 this season. Gibson pitched seven shutout innings for the third consecutive start, allowing only Nava’s double, while striking out eight without walking anyone. Gibson retired the first 14 batters before Nava lined a double near the base of the rightfield wall that bounced in Boston’s bullpen for a ground-rule double. Pedroia had his streak of reaching in every career start against the Twins snapped at 30 after he went 0 for 4. NOTES: Red Sox starters held an opponent to three runs or fewer for the 12th consecutive home game. ... A day after designating him for assignment, the Red Sox released struggling OF Grady Sizemore from the roster. ... Red Sox pitcher Brandon Workman lost an appeal of his six-game suspension for throwing near the head of Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria on May 30, and the right-hander began serving it Wednesday. ... RHP Yohan Pino makes his major league debut, facing Chicago’s Jose Quintana (3-7, 3.98 ERA) Thursday as the Twins open a four- game series at home against the White Sox. ... Jake Peavy (1-4, 4.53 ERA) goes for Boston Thursday against Oakland’s Scott Kazmir (8-2, 2.05) as the Red Sox begin a 10-game road trip. DODGERS 8, ROCKIES 0 LOS ANGELES (AP) — Clayton Kershaw pitched his first no-hitter Wednesday night, striking out a career-high 15 and allowing his only baserunner on a throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ 8-0 victory over the Colorado Rockies. Kershaw’s gem gave the Dodgers the only two no-hitters in the majors this season. Josh Beckett tossed one May 25 in Philadelphia. Cheered on by his wife in the stands, Kershaw (7-2) retired his first 18 batters before Corey Dickerson led off the seventh with a slow bouncer to Ramirez. His throw on the run went wide past first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for a two-base error — ending any chance for a perfect game. But that was it for the Rockies against Kershaw, a two-time NL Cy Young Award winner. And he came oh-so-close to throwing the 22nd perfect game since 1900. ROYALS 2, TIGERS 1 DETROIT (AP) — Kansas City won its 10th straight game, extending its best streak in 20 years with help from Jeremy Guthrie and a lucky hop. The Royals have not won this many games in a row since a run of 14 straight in 1994. They extended their AL Central lead over the Tigers to 1 1/2 games. Guthrie (4-6) allowed four hits and struck out nine in 6 2-3 innings. Drew Smyly (3-6) nearly matched him, but the Detroit lefthander was hurt by Alex Gordon’s RBI single that deflected off second base in the first and a solo homer by Omar Infante in the fifth. J.D. Martinez homered for the Tigers in the seventh, but the Kansas City bullpen got the last seven outs, with Greg Holland pitching the ninth for his 21st save in 22 chances. Kansas City will try for a four-game sweep Thursday. REDS 11, PIRATES 4 PITTSBURGH (AP) — Alfredo Simon became the NL’s first 10-game winner and Billy Hamilton had three hits and three RBIs for Cincinnati. Simon (10-3) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks in 6 1-3 innings and Cincinnati won for the sixth time in seven games. Brandon Phillips, Skip Schumaker and
Zack Cozart each had two of the Reds’ 14 hits in the game, which was delayed 1 hour, 15 minutes by rain in the bottom of the seventh inning. Schumaker also had three RBIs. Pittsburgh’s Gregory Polanco went 2 for 4 and became the second player in Pirates’ history — joining Spencer Adams (1923) — to have a hit in each of his first eight major league games. Edinson Volquez (4-6) was tagged for eight runs in 2 2-3 innings. ATHLETICS 4, RANGERS 2 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Brandon Moss hit a tiebreaking double in the fifth inning and Sonny Gray pitched Oakland past Texas, giving the Athletics the best record in the majors. Yoenis Cespedes and Josh Donaldson each had two hits for the A’s. Oakland has won four of five and is a season-high 16 games over .500 at 44-28. Gray (7-3) had won just two of his previous eight starts before going seven innings and striking out seven. Luke Gregerson pitched the eighth and Sean Doolittle worked the ninth for his ninth save. Nick Tepesch (2-3) went five innings. ShinSoo Choo drove in both runs for the Rangers. YANKEES 7, BLUE JAYS 3 NEW YORK (AP) — Brian McCann hit a go-ahead, two-run homer and later added a bases-loaded triple to lead New York over first-place Toronto. The Yankees beat Mark Buehrle for the ninth straight time and handed the Blue Jays their 15th loss in a row in the Bronx. Rookie right-hander Chase Whitley (3-0) remained unbeaten in seven starts since making his big league debut this season. Buehrle (10-4) gave up three runs and six hits in six innings and lost his third straight start overall. He is 1-11 against the Yankees,
with his lone win coming in 2004 with the Chicago White Sox. McCann tied his career high with five RBIs. His third major league triple was his first since 2009 with Atlanta. Toronto’s Jose Bautista had an RBI double for his 1,000th career hit. DIAMONDBACKS 4, BREWERS 3 PHOENIX (AP) — Light-hitting Tony Campana singled home Martin Prado from third base with two outs in the ninth inning to propel Arizona to victory. Prado doubled with one out to deep left center off Brandon Kintzler (1-3), advanced to third on David Peralta’s groundout, then scored when Campana slapped one up the middle. Khris Davis hit a three-run homer for the Brewers’ other runs. Arizona’s Chris Owings was a home run shy of the cycle and was robbed of a fourth hit by a diving stop by first baseman Mark Reynolds. Brad Ziegler (3-1), who gave up the deciding grand slam in Tuesday night’s 7-5 Milwaukee victory, retired all four batters he faced, three by strikeout, to get the victory. The Diamondbacks will try to salvage a split of the four-game series Thursday. PADRES 2, MARINERS 1 SAN DIEGO (AP) — Pinch-hitter Tommy Medica singled in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning for San Diego in its first home game since Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn died of cancer Monday. The light-hitting Padres honored Gwynn before the game and then cobbled together just enough offense for their second win in 10 games. Starters Felix Hernandez and Andrew Cashner pitched well but didn’t get a decision. Hernandez struck out 10 and allowed only See MLB Roundup, Page 11

By Robby Veronesi WNG Intern WESTFIELD – Two years. Two total losses in those two years. Four players needing to be replaced in between seasons. Zero problem for Kosinski Farms. Sam Schieppe, Jillian Wroth and Carlan Gideon combined to stymy the Kiwanis Club offense and the No. 1 seed manufactured enough offense to seal their second straight Senior Division softball championship with a tight 4-2 win Monday night. “Our defense was phenomenal,” said head coach Matt Wroth. “Every player did something to win the game last night. We have 12 players, so when you came off the bench, you had to step up, and they did.” For a team who was accustomed to winning regular season games by double-digit margins, the bats did just enough to secure the victory. Wroth, Jill McCormick and Elisa Kosinski all provided a much-needed spark with several key hits to provide the offense. Behind the pitching prowess, the rest of Kosinski Farms’s
defense contained a much improved Kiwanis Club offense. With one down and runners on second and third base, catcher Morgan Shia picked off opposing pitcher Madison Murphy off third base for a key second out. Devin Callaghan’s outfield putout halted the impeding Kiwanis rally. “(Kiwanis Club) was a team that we knew was going to be hard to beat because they were getting better every single game we played them,” said Wroth. “The last game we only beat them by five (runs). A microcosm of the entire season, the championship game showed that it takes a team effort to produce two straight division titles. Up and down the roster, from the Shia sisters (Morgan, Alexis, Diana) to Mahlia Reyes to Duncan Reed, Kailey King and Michaella Bouchard, a team came together to achieve a season-long goal to improve and win the final game, according to Coaches Wroth, Mike Kosinski and Craig Reed. “In our defense, we can put any girl in any position,” said Wroth. “We have a great group of girls who want to be there, who are there all the time and who improve every single game.”
Brady’s smarts jumpstarted stellar career By HOWARD ULMAN AP Sports Writer FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Tom Brady was a solid student as a rookie learning the New England Patriots playbook. The physical part of playing quarterback was tougher. “The reason I was a sixth-round pick was I didn’t have much ability,” the twotime NFL MVP said Wednesday. “So you’ve got to try to work hard to improve those things over the years while still keeping my mental game sharp.” Heading into his 15th season, Brady wants to do that as long as possible no matter what critics say. A recent Pro Football Focus story said he wasn’t one of the league’s top five quarterbacks. Do such opinions fire him up? He laughed then said, “I’m always pretty fired up so I think there’s people that always have opinions about us as athletes and you just try to go out there and do your best. You go home at night realizing you left it all on the field and some days you don’t play your best, but that’s sports.” Then Brady wondered where those comments originated. “Were they Jet fans or Dolphin fans or Bills fans? Patriots fans?” he said with a grin. “Everyone’s a little biased. My wife thinks I play pretty good. My mom thinks I play pretty good.” In 2000, though, he was just one of four Patriots quarterbacks. Drew Bledsoe was the starter, John Friesz threw 21 passes, Michael Bishop threw nine and Brady only three. But he had plenty of time to watch and learn. Since that was Bill Belichick’s first season as head coach, all the quarterbacks were learning a new system. “I was pretty fortunate to come in at the time that I did with coach Belichick,”
MLB Roundup three singles in seven innings, with no walks. But he allowed the Padres to tie it at 1 on a wild pitch with two outs in the sixth. Everth Cabrera started the winning rally by beating out an infield single on a chopper against Charlie Furbush (0-4). Cabrera was sacrificed over by Alexi Amarista and scored on Medica’s liner to center. James Jones throw home was late and off line. ORIOLES 2, RAYS 0 ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Kevin Gausman pitched six innings, Steve Pearce’s double snapped a scoreless tie and Nelson Cruz added his major league-leading 22nd home run to help Baltimore beat Tampa Bay. Pearce homered during a 7-5 victory Tuesday night and put the Orioles ahead this time with a line drive down the right-field line in the fifth. Alex Cobb (2-5) would have made it through the inning unscathed if second baseman Ben Zobrist hadn’t mishandled Nick Markakis’ grounder for an error. Gausman (3-1) allowed five hits and struck out five, including Zobrist and James Loney after the Rays loaded the bases with no outs in the first. The Rays were blanked for an AL-leading 11th time, finishing with five hits and going 0 for 7 with runners in scoring position. WHITE SOX 7, GIANTS 6 CHICAGO (AP) — Jose Abreu hit his 20th homer, a two-run shot, and Adam Dunn added a three-run drive to help Chicago hand San Francisco its fifth straight loss. White Sox ace Chris Sale (6-1) gave up three runs and eight hits in six-plus innings. Ronald Belisario got five outs for his seventh save.Abreu reached 20 homers in his 58th game, the third-fewest in major league history behind Wally Berger (51) and Mark McGuire (56). Chicago swept the two-game series. Giants starter Tim Hudson (7-3) allowed seven runs and 12 hits in 4 2-3 innings, his shortest outing this season. He entered with a major league-best 1.81 ERA.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady talks with reporters following NFL football mini-camp in Foxborough, Mass., Wednesday, June 18, 2014. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer) Brady said. Back then, the Patriots held an offseason quarterback camp. “We had a lot more time than the kids have now,” Brady said. “We had a quarterback (camp) where we met five days a week for like nine hours, all on going through the playbook. And that was really helpful for me. “If you want to be special at this game then you’ve got to do whatever it takes,” he said. “Some things come a little more naturally to certain people than others. The mental part came pretty natural for me. I think I really had to work hard on the physical part, what it takes to be an NFL player.” Now it’s Jimmy Garoppolo’s turn to be the team’s rookie quarterback. His leadership and poise have stood out during three weeks of organized team activities and this week’s minicamp. “Whoever plays that position has to take a strong leadership position,” Brady said. “There’s no one else that’s going to do it if the quarterback doesn’t do it so that’s a trait that all the good quarterbacks have and Jimmy’s got very good leadership skills.”
Offseason practices with the Patriots are much more intense than the ones Garoppolo had at Eastern Illinois. “I don’t even know if you can compare the two,” Garoppolo said with a chuckle. “It’s night and day.” There’s little time to waste with so much to learn in so little time. Every day missed with an injury is a setback. “When you get behind in training camp, it’s hard to make up,” Brady said. “Things are moving so fast at that point and improvements are so dramatic every day with installation and correcting all the errors. “You’re only a young player for a certain amount of time in the NFL and at that point people are just waiting for you to produce. Nobody can really make mistakes, not if you want to be a good offense.” A better test of how the offense develops comes late next month when the Patriots start training camp. Thursday’s minicamp session is the last full team practice before then. So after four weeks of practice, “you know the things you need to improve on,” Brady said. “You have five weeks to focus on it and make it better so you can come into the camp at the most important time, really at your best.” NOTES: Belichick shed no light on cornerback Darrelle Revis’ absence from practice Wednesday. “All the players that are out there practicing are practicing and the ones that aren’t, aren’t,” he said. ... Brady said his wife, Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen, would go to the World Cup in Brazil, but he wasn’t sure whether he would. “I haven’t finalized everything. It’s a busy time,” Brady said. “I’ve got three kids at home so they take up a lot of time and energy. I know my wife’s heading down there so it’ll be fun for her.”
Continued from Page 10 NATIONALS 6, ASTROS 5 WASHINGTON (AP) — Anthony Rendon homered to spark a three-run seventh inning, and pinch-hitter Nate McLouth came through with a tiebreaking sacrifice fly as Washington rallied past Houston for a two-game sweep. The Nationals extended their NL East lead to 1 1/2 games over Atlanta and Miami. They open a four-game series against the Braves on Thursday night in Washington. Ian Desmond hit a key double off Kyle Farnsworth in the seventh. Darin Downs (1-1) took the loss. Aaron Barrett (3-0) got one out for the win and Rafael Soriano earned his 15th save. Matt Dominguez drove in two runs for the Astros, who have lost three straight. PHILLIES 10, BRAVES 5 ATLANTA (AP) — Ryan Howard capped a big series by driving in two runs with three hits, and Philadelphia battered Aaron Harang to complete a three-game sweep of Atlanta. Howard, who homered in the first two games of the series, doubled home a run in a five-run second inning and added an RBI single in the fifth. He had five hits, four walks and six RBIs in the series. Marlon Byrd drove in three runs with three hits, including a homer. Five players each had three of Philadelphia’s season-high 18 hits. Evan Gattis hit a two-run homer in the Braves’ four-run first inning off Roberto Hernandez (3-5). Ryan Doumit also homered and hit a two-run single. Harang (5-6) allowed nine runs, eight earned, and 13 hits. He threw 115 pitches in five innings. The Phillies have won seven of nine. Atlanta has lost eight of 12. METS 3, CARDINALS 2 ST. LOUIS (AP) — Bartolo Colon worked eight dominant innings in 91-degree heat and keyed the go-ahead rally with his first career extra-base hit, helping New York beat St. Louis to avoid a three-game sweep. Eric Young Jr. and David Wright each had an RBI in a two-run sixth that put the
Mets up by a run. Young added an RBI double in the seventh, aided by Colon’s second sacrifice of the game. A day after dropping their sixth straight series in St. Louis, the Mets ended an eight-game road losing streak dating to June 3. Matt Carpenter hit his third career leadoff homer for the Cardinals, who lost for the second time in nine games. They had just one runner in scoring position against the 41-year-old Colon (7-5), who retired 13 in a row before Daniel Descalso’s two-out single in the eighth. Colon surprised Lance Lynn (7-5) with a double to open the sixth. The pitcher had been 0 for 43 at the plate since June 10, 2005, when he singled for the Angels against the Mets. He scored his second career run, and first since 2002 with the Expos, when Young followed with a double. Colon won his fifth straight decision and needed just 86 pitches. He allowed four hits and walked none. Left-hander Dana Eveland retired lefty swinging Matt Adams with a runner on for his second career save. The other came in 2005. The Mets won for the fourth time in 15 games. CUBS 6, MARLINS 1 MIAMI (AP) — Jake Arrieta had a career-high 11 strikeouts in seven innings, and Nate Schierholtz hit a threerun homer to lead Chicago over Miami. By taking the rubber game of the three-game set, the last-place Cubs won consecutive road series for the first time since June 2013. Marlins slugger Giancarlo Stanton hit his NL-leading 20th homer in the first but left the game after six innings with a bruised left wrist. Stanton said the injury wasn’t serious, and he expected to be back in the lineup Thursday. Arrieta (3-1) allowed five hits and one walk, lowering his ERA to 1.98. He also doubled for his first career extra-base hit. Schierholtz connected off Nathan Eovaldi (4-3) in a four-run sixth. Starlin Castro had a pair of RBI doubles and a single.

Annie’s Mailbox By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar
Heart of stone Dear Annie: I believe my husband is having an emotional affair with his employee “Tina.” All the signs are there. My husband’s office phone accidentally dialed me while he was talking with Tina at work, and I overheard their conversation. He called her terms of love. I started snooping and discovered that they text each other hundreds of times a month. He lets her know when I’m away from the house so she can call him directly. Tina is the first person he calls on his way to work and the last person he calls on his way home. It used to be me. We’ve been married for 18 months, but we are not kids. We are in our 50s. I’m stunned by his behavior. When I confronted him, he said he isn’t doing anything wrong because nothing physical has happened between them. Since then, he’s become more secretive and won’t discuss it at all. I am so saddened by this. He is giving to Tina a part of him that is meant for me, his wife. I am going to therapy, and that helps. But I have reached the point where I no longer have the feelings of love for my husband that I used to. I’m upset with him all of the time. Tell your readers that an emotional affair is just as damaging as a physical one -- maybe more so. -- Heart of Stone Dear Heart: Some partners mistakenly believe that if there is no sex, there is no affair. But giving your emotions, your heart, your innermost thoughts to someone other than your spouse is also cheating. It creates a bond with a third party, allowing that person into your marriage. We are glad you are getting counseling, but if your husband does not understand the damage he is doing and makes no effort to change it, we worry that your marriage will not survive. (You also might point out that he is putting his career in jeopardy by becoming involved with a subordinate.) Dear Annie: After 20 years of marriage, my husband and I divorced because he was having an affair. My now ex-in-laws have welcomed the Other Woman into their lives. Even before we were divorced, my ex-mother-in-law was hanging out with my ex-husband and his mistress. I feel totally betrayed by my ex’s family. I still spend time with my ex-in-laws because of my three teenage children. They keep saying that they still love me and that I am still their daughter, but would any family member, especially a mother, cozy up to the person who caused her daughter so much pain? Am I overreacting? -- L. Dear L.: You are expecting loyalty from someone who cannot give it. As much as they may love and care about you, your in-laws love and care about their son more. Even if they believe their son behaved terribly toward you, this Other Woman may become his wife and your children’s stepmother. If they reject her, they risk alienating him. Your best bet is to learn to live graciously with the situation in order to make it easier for your children. If you cannot achieve this on your own, please consider counseling. Dear Annie: “Can’t Please Mother” said Mom never was happy about any gift she received from her kids. I have a different perspective. My sons have given me electronic devices, but never took the time to show me how to use them, so they sit in my dresser under my socks. When my grandchild was born, I received a cup with her picture. It was the best gift ever, and I said so, yet I never got another one. I once visited a woman who had shelf after shelf of “stuff” she couldn’t use, and all she did was dust it all every week. People should listen to what others truly want. -- Nebraska Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

HINTS FROM HELOISE PEELING POTATOES Dear Heloise: I read your column every day in the (Steubenville, Ohio) Herald-Star. My hint came to me while I was peeling potatoes with a vegetable peeler, a chore I don’t like to do. I retrieved my apple corer/ parer from the cupboard. It’s the kind you force into one end of the apple (potato, in this case) and then turn the handle and the apple (potato) is peeled. As it goes through, the core is removed. It works great on potatoes, and an extra benefit is that the nowskinless potato is in the form of a twisty fry. I either put it in boiling water to cook for mashed potatoes, or the fry can be deepfried for a homemade treat just like at restaurants. It’s fast, easy and quick to clean up. -- Rose G. in Ohio SQUEEZING LIMES Dear Heloise: I found the perfect kitchen tool to squeeze juice for my key lime pie: my garlic press! The small Mexican limes from my patio tree fit perfectly. I just halve the lime, pop it in the press and squeeze. I have a cup of juice in no time. My husband even uses this hint when making his vodka tonics. -- Barbara N., via email

YOUR HOROSCOPE Contract Bridge By Jaqueline Bigar
DOG EAT DOUG
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Thursday, June 19, 2014: This year you often feel tense about your interactions with those you look up to. Recognize that they might not judge you as fiercely as you do yourself. If you are single, you might want to start counting down your single days, as you easily could form a meaningful bond with someone you meet. If you are attached, the two of you indulge in a lot of flirtation. Remember to respect your differences. ARIES can be a great friend who adds excitement to your life. The Stars Show the Kind of Day You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive; 3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult

ARIES (March 21-April 19) HHHH Handle private matters by avoiding groups until later in the afternoon. At that point, you will want to be with others, and you will handle any difficulties accordingly. Someone who you normally don’t see eye to eye with likely will agree with your choices. Tonight: As you like it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHHH Use the daylight hours to contact others, schedule meetings, have discussions and network to your heart’s content. You could be surprised by the progress you make. Later in the day, you might want to stop at the gym or take a walk. Tonight: Get some beauty sleep. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You’ll accept a lot of responsibility, and you could be at the point of backing away from any more requests. Realize that you are just one person! A creative brainstorming session might point the way to great security and stronger boundaries. Tonight: Go along with a suggestion. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Gather more facts. You might want to target a few people, but also be sure to do your own research. Don’t be surprised if you feel drained by the time you gather all the information you need. Revitalize your energy by getting some fresh air. Tonight: Could be a late one. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHH Relating on an individual level will provide you with much more satisfaction. The realization that you see eye to eye with a dear friend will make you feel great. Consider scheduling a weekend away from your daily uproar. Tonight: Be where music can be found. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHHH Others seem to come forward for a myriad of reasons. Use your position in a positive way. Recognize that you have the power of saying “yes” or “no.” Figure out what is really being said, but also pay attention to what is not being said. Tonight: Let someone else take the lead. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHH Focus on what must be done first. You might feel overwhelmed with everything that is happening in the daytime, but by late afternoon, your energy will surge. You won’t want to say “no” to an invitation that heads your way. Tonight: Go with the moment. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHH Your creativity will peak during the daytime. Consider applying it to figuring out great plans for the weekend. You’ll beam in much more of what you want than usual. Use the late afternoon to run errands. Tonight: Reach out to a friend at a distance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH Motivating yourself to get out the door might be difficult in the morning. Perhaps you need to follow what your body tells you and relax, or maybe you’ll consider doing what you must from home. By the afternoon, you are likely to perk up. Tonight: Start the weekend early. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You might want to make yourself more comfortable with someone you need to deal with. Consider going to lunch together. Once you get to know this person, you will like him or her a lot. Don’t allow a misconnection to mar a budding relationship. Tonight: Home is your castle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHH You will want to confirm that your balance is correct. You might not be pleased with what you see, but it will be better than assuming you have an incorrect amount in your bank account. Clear up a misunderstanding in the afternoon. Tonight: Do what you think you should. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHHH Make the most out of an offer. You could have an opportunity head your way that will allow much
more creativity to flourish. Realize what is necessary to make a family member more comfortable with you. Discussions about your home are likely. Tonight: Get some errands done. BORN TODAY Actress Kathleen Turner (1954), musician Guy Lombardo (1902), baseball player Lou Gehrig (1903)
