“Time does not become sacred to us until we have lived it, until it has passed over us and taken with it a part of ourselves.” — John Burroughs 75 cents
Construction to continue on Springfield Road
BOSTON (AP) — Critics of a law that allows for automatic increases in the state’s gasoline tax have pounced on the issue with the hope of pushing it to the forefront of the election year debate. Republicans, currently shut out of statewide offices and heavily outnumbered in the Legislature, have embraced the fight against gas tax indexing and believe their cause could resonate strongly with mainstream voters, particularly independents and moderate Democrats, whom the party desperately needs for success in November. The Democrat-controlled Legislature last year raised the gasoline tax by 3 cents to 24 cents a gallon — the first increase in the tax since 1991 — as part of a broader transportation finance bill. Lawmakers also indexed the tax to inflation, meaning it will automatically rise by the same annual percentage as the U.S. Consumer Price Index. Charlie Baker, the GOP’s endorsed candidate for governor,
By Peter Francis Staff Writer WESTFIELD – Compensatory storage was on the agenda at the City of Westfield’s Conservation Commission meeting at Westfield City Hall last night. Rob Levesque of R. Levesque & Associates came before the commission representing Julie and Nabil Hannoush regarding the creation of additional compensatory storage for renovations to the existing building and construction of three retail buildings at 99 Springfield Road, the former home of a Balise car dealership. The commission eventually decided to approve the motion, their rationale being that the DEP could revisit the project later should any concerns linger. Levesque said that since the commission’s last meeting on May 13, he and his group have gone back and forth with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), who issued an audit letter so they could acquire further information on the project. “We have provided an additional alternatives analysis, which included a financial analysis of the property, in addition to a revised plan,” said Levesque of the eight-page document. “The revised plan has basically taken the compensatory storage area out of the riverfront area as much as possible. We’ve enhanced the plantings in the compensatory storage area and the revegetation of that forested riverfront area, as that was a concern of DEP.” Levesque said that the project’s alternatives analysis was very detailed and explained the rationale of why these additional buildings needed to be done. “It was based on a typical commercial real estate venture,” he said. “The anticipated return was directly related with how DEP has us do alternatives analysis – we looked at not only onsite, but also adjacent alternatives and offsite alternatives within the city.” According to Levesque, a building has already been relocated out of the riverfront area, and the only work that is currently within the riverfront area is lowering some of the bank to create more compensatory storage space. Compensatory storage is a term used to describe any artificially excavated, hydraulically equivalent volume of storage within the Special Flood Hazard Area of a body of water. This storage is used to balance the loss of natural flood storage capacity when artificial fill or structures are placed within a floodplain. Levesque stated that prior filings for the property, in 1986 and the early ’00s, lead him to believe that the current project had adequate storage. “After going through the two previous filings, we thought we had the magic bullet and we were all set,” he said. “But because the original filing was adjusted or changed halfway through the as-built plan, the revised compensatory storage numbers we were able to find didn’t create the initial storage as we thought.” To accomodate for the prospective compensatory storage increase, Levesque told the commission that the proposed buildings, which will house the Hannoush’s Expert Fitness franchise, indoor batting cages, a bistro, and other retail space, have been reduced in size, and that a riverfront restoration area has been created within the plan. Commission Chairman Dr. David Doe asked how much land would be used for the riverfront restoration, and Levesque said it would encapsulate 3,150 square feet, in addition to the project’s 21,110 square feet in compensatory storage. When asked by Commissioner Thomas Sharp about what DEP’s reaction has been to the proposed riverfront restoration, Levesque said they would like for them to stay out of it. “My interpretation is that DEP would like us to stay

Divesting pensions finds support By STEVE LeBLANC Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — Environmental activists pushing Massachusetts to divest its state pension fund from fossil fuel companies are getting words of encouragement from some of the candidates running for governor. At least three Democratic candidates are offering full or qualified support for the activists, who have also tried to pressure universities and local governments to pull financial support from the companies in an attempt to raise awareness about climate change. The activists, including many college students, are holding out hope for a bill that would require the state Pension Reserves Investment Management Board to “sell, redeem, divest or withdraw all publicly-traded securities” in fossil fuel companies. “In the same way divestment efforts changed the national discussion around tobacco and apartheid, we hope the divestment of fossil fuels will change the national discussion around climate change,” said Emily Kirkland, a recent graduate of Brown University and spokeswoman for the Better Future Project. About $1.3 billion in state pension fund assets were invested
Bill seeks stronger gun laws in Massachusetts By BOB SALSBERG Associated Press BOSTON (AP) — House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop) has unveiled long-awaited legislation designed to further tighten the state’s already strict gun laws. The bill would for the first time give local police chiefs the ability to deny firearms licenses for rifles or shotguns based on suitability standards and extend federal restrictions for firearm acquisition to the state level. The measure would also require background checks for private gun sales and require Massachusetts to join a national instant criminal background database. The bill mirrors many recommendations made by a task force headed by Northeastern University professor Jack McDevitt that was created after the December 2012 school
in fossil fuels out of a total value of $54 billion as of May 2013, according to supporters of the legislation. The bill’s sponsor, state Sen. Benjamin Downing, has argued that divestment is inevitable, pointing to the state’s ongoing efforts to encourage the development of wind, solar, and other sources of renewable energy. The Pittsfield Democrat said Massachusetts can take the lead in that effort and become the first state to divest its pension fund. Downing’s bill has yet to reach the floor of the Senate or House for a vote. The Legislature’s formal session ends July 31. Some of those seeking the state’s highest political office are backing the idea, at least in part. Attorney General Martha Coakley and state Treasurer Steve Grossman — both Democratic candidates for governor — gave the proposal qualified support. A spokeswoman for Coakley said she backs divestment from fossil fuels “as long as we can ensure that it does not harm our ability to meet our financial obligations or place a greater burden on taxpayers in Massachusetts.” See Pensions, Page 3

Annual fireworks up in the air By Hope E. Tremblay Staff Writer SOUTHWICK – Southwick will have fireworks this year if Parks and Recreation Commission Chairman Kelly Magni has his way. The event typically takes place the same weekend as the Southwick Fireman’s Carnival in July. This year, Magni said there is no carnival and he is not sure where the event will be held but he is determined to continue the tradition. “We used to shoot them off from the school, but that’s completely under construction,” said Magni. The American Lagion is an option but the school property would not be available for parking. The ideal location, he said, is Whalley Park. “I am hoping it will be open by the end of June,” said Magni. The park completion punch list includes moving meters, repaving, placing signs, and getting restrooms and storage sheds up to code.
“We are getting to the end,” said Magni. “Construction should be done the first or second week in June. Then we can clean-up and get Lane in to do the paving.” While Magni is hopeful the fireworks can be held at Whalley Park in July, the budget is a concern, Parks and Recreation Commissioner Daniel Call said the town gave the Commission a fireworks budget of just $1,800. “For a decent display you need $8,000, minimum,” said Call. In the past, Magni and his family parked cars at Whalley Park when it was owned by John Whalley and used the parking money to supplement the fireworks budget. This year, Magni said he’s not sure how they will cover the cost of fireworks. The department is accepting donations from the community to purchase fireworks. Anyone wishing to make a donation should contact the Commission at (413) 569-5701.

Odds & Ends Nebraska woman wolfs down 2 4½-pound steaks AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A Nebraska woman celebrated breaking a Texas steakhouse’s speed record for eating a 4½-pound slab of beef by polishing off another one. The Amarillo Globe-News (http://bit. ly/TQGbwz ) and the Big Texan Steak Ranch’s Twitter page say that competitive eater Molly Schuyler finished her first steak in 4 minutes and 58 seconds. The previous record was 8 minutes and 52 seconds. The 5-foot-7, 125-pound mother from Bellevue, Nebraska, ate her second 4½-pound steak in 9 minutes and 59 seconds. The restaurant foots the bill for anyone who can eat one of the steaks, a baked potato, shrimp, a salad and bread roll in under an hour, so Schuyler ate those side dishes as well. In February, the self-described “bottomless pit” ate 363 chicken wings in 30 minutes in Philadelphia.

On this date: In 1533, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, declared the marriage of England’s King Henry VIII to Anne Boleyn valid. In 1863, the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment, made up of freed blacks, left Boston to fight for the Union in the Civil War. In 1892, the Sierra Club was organized in San Francisco. In 1912, the Senate Commerce Committee issued its report on the Titanic disaster that cited a “state of absolute unpreparedness,” improperly tested safety equipment and an “indifference to danger” as some of the causes of an “unnecessary tragedy.” In 1929, the first all-color talking picture, “On with the Show,” opened in New York. In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt pushed a button in Washington signaling that vehicular traffic could begin crossing the just-opened Golden Gate Bridge in California. Neville Chamberlain became prime minister of Britain. In 1940, during World War II, the Belgian army surrendered
to invading German forces. In 1959, the U.S. Army launched Able, a rhesus monkey, and Baker, a squirrel monkey, aboard a Jupiter missile for a suborbital flight which both primates survived. In 1961, Amnesty International had its beginnings with the publication of an article in the British newspaper The Observer, “The Forgotten Prisoners.” In 1964, the charter of the Palestine Liberation Organization was issued at the start of a meeting of the Palestine National Congress in Jerusalem. In 1977, 165 people were killed when fire raced through the Beverly Hills Supper Club in Southgate, Kentucky. In 1984, President Ronald Reagan led a state funeral at Arlington National Cemetery for an unidentified American soldier killed in the Vietnam War. (However, the remains were later identified through DNA as those of Air Force 1st Lt. Michael J. Blassie, and were sent to St. Louis for hometown burial.)
Ten years ago: The Iraqi Governing Council chose Iyad Allawi, a longtime anti-Saddam Hussein exile, to become prime minister of Iraq’s interim government. Some three dozen people were killed by a powerful earthquake in northern Iran.
Five years ago: A white New York City police officer killed an off-duty black
colleague in a friendly fire incident in East Harlem. (A grand jury declined to indict Officer Andrew Dunton in the shooting of Officer Omar Edwards, who had drawn his gun and was chasing a man who had broken into his car.) Kavya Shivashankar, a 13-year-old girl from Kansas, spelled “Laodicean” (lukewarm or indifferent in religion or politics) to win the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
One year ago: Calling it perhaps the biggest money-laundering scheme in U.S. history, federal prosecutors charged seven people with running what amounted to an online, underworld bank, saying that Liberty Reserve handled $6 billion for drug dealers, child pornographers, identity thieves and other criminals around the globe.

A provision in the bill states that any divestment can’t result in a loss to the pension fund of more than one half of 1 percent. Another Democratic candidate has given a more fullthroated endorsement of the measure. Don Berwick has said he supports “immediately divesting state pension funds from those fossil fuel companies that demonstrate an irresponsible and unresponsive disregard of the principles of environmental stewardship.” Two independent gubernatorial hopefuls staked out more cautious stands. Evan Falchuk said he would want to put the question to a public referendum, adding that “if the majority of voters supported divestment” he would back it. Another independent candidate, Jeff McCormick, opposed the measure, saying it’s “not an appropriate use of divestment for the state’s already struggling pension funds” and adding there are better ways to reduce the state’s carbon footprint and “encourage and invest in the development of green businesses.” The PRIM Board is charged with managing the Pension Reserves Investment Trust consisting of the assets of the state employees’ and teachers’ retirement systems as well as the assets of local retirement systems. An oil and gas trade group has dismissed the divestment efforts, saying the industry has created jobs and rising profits for investors. The executive director of the Massachusetts Pension Reserves Investment Management Board has said divestment would create a “significant administrative and operational burden.” Eight cities and towns in Massachusetts — Framingham, Sudbury, Concord, Amherst, Cambridge, Northampton, Provincetown and Truro — have approved nonbinding resolutions calling for penleagues in the House for their commitment to creating such a thoughtful, deliberate and comprehensive bill.” “The members of the Committee to Reduce Firearm Violence are very pleased that so many of our recommendations and each of the most important recommendations have been included in the legislation filed by Speaker DeLeo,” said McDevitt. “The task of addressing the approximate 60 bills filed this session related to firearms has been a long and arduous one,” said Representative Harold

price in China,” Peace said. Under RGGI’s nine-state program, power plants that have the capacity to produce 25 megawatts or more power are required to purchase one allowance for every ton of CO2 they emit, with the price based on quarterly auctions. The utilities purchase the allowances directly from the states, and the states spend the money on programs like investments in energy efficiency and efforts to reduce demand for fossil fuels. In Maryland, thousands of low-income apartments have been given efficiency upgrades, and the money helped 3,100 families and 106 businesses install solar, wind and geothermal systems to offset the need for carbon-polluting electricity. In Delaware, the funds have subsidized energy-efficient appliances and LED light bulb installation at poultry farms that should cut back on 890 megawatt-hours of electricity every year. The programs have given grants toward the costs of installing solar panels at a community college in New York and efficient refrigeration systems at a blueberry company in Maine. RGGI and independent studies have found that the program injected more than $1.6 billion into the regional economy and saved consumers about $1.1 billion on electric bills in its first three years, while creating new jobs and cutting CO2. Arroyo said some states have also gained from reinvesting the auction money. Besides their 40 percent reductions in CO2 emissions from 2005 to 2012, the nine RGGI states are requiring 2.5 percent cuts each year from now until 2020. That means the region will have cut carbon emissions 50 percent below 2005 levels at that point. Many of RGGI’s early carbon cuts came from causes unrelated to the program, Litz said, noting that the states faced an economic turndown, closed coal plants and had increased their reliance on natural gas. But the program was flexible, and the states lowered the carbon cap in response, he said. Of course, not all states will follow the RGGI model for cutting carbon. Thirty states have adopted a “renewable portfolio standard” that requires a certain amount of power to come from wind, solar and geothermal sources. Colorado is on track to cut 29 percent of its carbon emissions by 2018 by lowering demand and increasing energy efficiency and use of wind power, according to a report from the Georgetown Climate Center that details CO2-reduction programs in 46 states. Minnesota cut 17 percent of its emissions from 2005 to 2011 and has banned new coal-fired power plants if they produce a net increase in carbon pollution, the report said. California has an economywide cap-and-trade program that includes a broad variety of pollution sources, not just power plants. Litz said he’d be “surprised if any other states approached it more broadly” like that. But over time, if EPA moves to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from industries like refining and manufacturing, some states could add those industries to whatever mechanism they choose, he said. It’s too soon to tell if more states will launch RGGI-type programs, said Tim Profeta, director of the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University. And some experts, like Navigant managing director Cliff Hamal, say EPA’s state-by-state approach will never be as efficient as a nationwide approach to putting a price on greenhouse gas pollutions, such as a carbon tax. Hamal, who released a report on the difficulties of creating cap-and-trade programs across widely varied market systems and regional power regulators, argues that RGGI hasn’t really been tested and hasn’t had to achieve the kinds of carbon cuts EPA could require in coming years. But once EPA sets a plan in motion, the country could be locked in for decades, he said. In some states where the power markets are governed by regional regulators, “the state doesn’t have a way of telling investors of that system what to put their money into,” he said. “How is giving states authority to reduce CO2 going to work?” Many people involved in wind and solar power — which produces no greenhouse gases — are also looking anxiously toward EPA’s efforts. The Solar Energy Industries Association has warned that “poorly designed” trading systems could harm some states’ voluntary carbon credit systems or could keep nonutility solar owners from getting credit for their CO2 reductions. Others say the huge gaps between existing programs are a bridge that will be hard to cross. For example, big disparities exist between the carbon price in California and the RGGI states, said analyst Tim Cheung of ClearView Energy Partners. But Speakes-Backman thinks the results in the Northeast speak for themselves. “RGGI is a market-based program that reduces emissions — specifically carbon dioxide emissions — at the lowest possible cost,” she said.

When it comes to 21st century multimedia platforms, “hyper local” is a term you hear a lot. It’s not a new idea. In fact, The Westfield News has been providing readers with “hyper local” news coverage of Westfield, Southwick, and the Hilltowns all along. Television, radio and regional newpapers only provide fleeting coverage of local issues you care about. TV stations and big newspaper publishers, after years of cutbacks and mergers, frankly aren’t able to provide in-depth coverage of smaller markets anymore. But, day in and day out, The Westfield News provides consistant coverage of the stories you need to know about, that are important to your city, town, neighborhood and home.

Nutrition Spotlight: Strawberries By Allison Mitchell Correspondent It’s strawberry season in California and Florida! In early- to mid-June we’ll be able to pick our own in western Massachusetts! Strawberries are a great addition to any diet. Nutrition benefits packed into 1 cup of sliced strawberries include: • Only 45 calories • 3g of fiber • More than 100 percent of your daily vitamin C requirements • High antioxidant and phytonutrient content. Rich in anthocyanin, a compound that is responsible for the bright red color of strawberries. Studies suggest that consuming foods high in anthocyanins can help decrease risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer as well as improve cognitive function.
Strawberry Avocado Salsa Ingredients • cup finely chopped strawberries • 1/4 cup finely chopped peeled avocado • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice • 2 teaspoons finely chopped seeded jalapeño pepper • 1/4 teaspoon sugar Preparation 1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl; toss gently. Serve over roast chicken, sautéed fish, or grilled pork tenderloin. You can also enjoy it as a snack with baked tortilla chips. Allison Mitchell RD, LDN, is the Clinical Nutrition Manager at Noble Hospital.
Hot-sauce controversy may be cooling down IRWINDALE, Calif. (AP) — The heat may finally be going out of a confrontation between a chili-sauce maker and a Los Angeles suburb. Irwindale Mayor Mark Breceda tells the Pasadena Star-News (http://bit.ly/1nsRI2h) that he’ll ask the City Council to drop its public-nuisance order and lawsuit against Huy Fong Foods. The company makes the popular Sriracha (suhr-AH’-chuh) hot sauce. The city has been squabbling with the company for months after residents complained that spicy odors burned their throats and eyes. But on Tuesday morning, city officials held a closed-door meeting with company CEO David Tran and representatives of Gov. Jerry Brown’s Business and Economic Development Office. Tran says he installed stronger filters at the plant, and he’s confident they will block fumes when the chili-grinding season begins in August.
Starbucks-owned chain to offer burgers NEW YORK (AP) — Starbucks is dipping its toe into the burger business, with plans to open an outpost of its La Boulange chain that caters to the dinner crowd. A spokeswoman for Starbucks, Linda Mills, said the Los Angeles restaurant is scheduled to open June 12 and will be open until 10 p.m. It will also serve beer, wine, cocktails and milkshakes. Starbucks Corp. had purchased the La Boulange chain of bakery-cafes in 2012. The cafes are based in San Francisco Bay Area and primarily focus on breakfast and lunch with soups, salads and sandwiches, along with baked goods. Those cafes typically close before 7 p.m. The location in Los Angeles will be the first outside of the San Francisco area and will have more of a “modern farmhouse” feel to it, Mills said. Many of the bakery items will be the same, but the menu will be significantly expanded to include build-your-ownburgers and other dishes designed for dinner. It’s just Starbucks’ latest experiment with formats beyond its namesake cafes. After acquiring a chain of packaged tea stores called Teavana, for instance, the company last year opened an outpost in New York City modeled more after a pricey cafe that serves small bites and prepared tea drinks. As for the company’s future plans with La Boulange, Mills said, “We’re going to see how this one goes.” Starbucks, based in Seattle, has more than 20,000 locations around the world.

Evelyn L. Broga URBANA, IL - Evelyn L. Broga, 96, of Urbana, IL passed away peacefully May 21, 2014 at Amber Glen in Urbana. Our much-loved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend was born July 30, 1917 in Westfield, Massachusetts. Evelyn was the fourth child of Frederick James and Delia (Thibadeau) Killips. A child of the Depression, she described her early years as filled with a large extended family, friends, laughter and inexpensive fun. She carried these lessons into adulthood. Evelyn and Ken Broga met at his 13th birthday party. They lived in nearby towns and did not see each other again until they were 21. They married on June 16, 1940. He became a career Air Force officer following World War II, so the family moved often. Evelyn turned every house into a home where every visitor was treated as family. She particularly enjoyed the years they were stationed in Germany. Ken died July 22, 1963, at which time Evelyn returned to her hometown of Westfield, where she remained until 2008 when she moved to Urbana. She graduated from Westfield High School in 1935. She found a job as a companion to the wife of the librarian at the Westfield Athenaeum. He later offered her a part-time job in the children’s library, which she loved. She and her cousin, Eleanor, had been avid readers and regular patrons of the Athenaeum when they were children. They checked out a book in the morning, went home and read it, and walked back in the afternoon to check out another book. Evelyn was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Freddy, and her sisters Margaret Rumplik, Dorothy Beahn, and Elizabeth Kratochvil. She is survived by her sister, Pearl DeGray, of Westfield. Her daughter, Ellen Jean White, died in 2004. Mom/Gramma is remembered with love by her son, Mike (Abbie), of Urbana; grandson, Eric (Penny) of Champaign, grandson, Brian (Susan) of Elkhorn, WI and great-grandchildren, Dustin, Matthew, Jakob, Sarah and David. We will miss her spunk, independent and adventurous spirit, ready smile, and laugh. She leaves nieces, Della Hayden, LeDora Harrington, Dorothy Barrett, and nephews, David Kratochvil, James DeGray, Raymond Rumplik, and Ronald Rumplik.

THE WESTFIELD NEWSSPORTS WHS advances in LAX By Chris Putz Staff Writer WESTFIELD – It’s upward and onward for the Westfield High School boys’ lacrosse team. No. 4 Westfield more than survived the opening round of the Division 2 west sectional Tuesday, soundly defeating 13th-seeded Wachusett, 16-5. Westfield scored in the opening minute of the tournament game, tallied the game’s first five goals, built an 8-1 first half lead, and cruised to a victory. “We just executed,” said Westfield sophomore Matt Chlastawa, who led the team with five goals and four assists. Sam Scarfo finished with four goals and four assists. “They made a few mistakes – we took advantage,” Chlastawa said. “We were aggressive from the start. Our defense stood on its head … and got us the ball.” Luke Chlastawa, Matt’s older brother, scored the first goal 60 seconds in. Matt made it 2-0, two minutes, 20 seconds later. Westfield blitzed Wachusett (11-10) with six more goals in the second quarter. The Bombers’ defense let up just one. Matt Chlastawa was on the receiving end of a bang-bang play, corralling a line drive pass from Scarfo in the center of the field out in front of the net, exploding past the defense and whipping the ball Into the back of the net with 10:22 remaining in the first half. Chlastawa burst into a highstepping celebration. The rout was on. “We did a lot of shooting in (the days leading up to the postseason opener),” Westfield coach Mark Cavalon said. “It paid off.” Cavalon also credited the entire team defense for its aggressiveness and effectiveness – not wishing to single out just one individual – and Craig Ward, who won the majority of face offs. Westfield goalie Jake Cupak finished with 11 saves. The Bombers (15-3) advance to face No. 5 Westboro (13-4) in the quarterfinals Thursday at Westfield High School at 4 p.m.

By Chris Putz Staff Writer WESTFIELD – Westfield High took a small step forward in the Western Massachusetts Division 1 boys’ volleyball tournament thanks to several giant leaps from Manny Golob and his fellow high-flying teammates. Golob recorded a career best 13 kills as Westfield manhandled Belchertown 3-0 Tuesday night at home. The Bombers posted a 25-9, 25-22, 25-17 victory to advance to Thursday’s semifinal against top-seeded Agawam (16-2). “It’s the playoffs so we were a bit more enthusiastic and hyped up for the game,” Golob said. “We were just trying to get past the first round.” Golob’s teammate, Ryan Bucko (10 kills, 5 blocks), landed the first blow, a teethrattling kill in the opening set.
The Bombers then converged for a block, proving they meant business. It took a well-placed, twohanded tapper to the far corner from Belchertown to stop Westfield’s 6-0 run to open the game. The Orioles never threatened, and the Bombers finished off the first set with an ace from Ivan Zuev (22 digs, 3 aces) and kills from Bucko and Golob for three of the set’s final six points. The middle frame turned into more a dogfight. Belchertown opened with a 4-0 run, and led by as many as six points before Westfield surged ahead late. Eric Shilyuk (7 kills, 12 assists, 6 digs) made a leaping kill to tie the second game for the first time, 17-all. The game was tied again at 18-18. Westfield led briefly 19-18 before another tie at 20-20. The Bombers scored five of the last seven points (includ-
ing a Bucko kill for the exclamation) to seize a 2 sets-tonone lead and sap all emotion from Belchertown. “We kind of eased down … but we got everything going again,” Golob said. Westfield took command of the third set from the outset, only losing grasp of the controls with an overenthusiastic spike that sailed out of bounds. The 75th Westfield point, another Golob kill, completed the tournament victory. “We developed a great rhythm with our setters Chris Paradis and Eric Shilyuk,” Bombers coach Tyler Wingate said. Westfield knows Agawam will look to disrupt that harmony later this week. The Brownies swept the season series 2-0 with a pair of 3-0 victories. “We’re going to fine tune a couple of things,” Wingate said.

Braves fall to Red Sox 6-3, have injury concerns
By CHARLES ODUM AP Sports Writer ATLANTA (AP) — The pain of seeing a lead disappear against the Red Sox was bad enough for the Braves. Injury scares for two key players only added to the bad , night. . Atlanta’s bullpen gave up . four runs in the seventh inning as Boston rallied for the second straight game, beating the Braves 6-3 on Tuesday. Braves catcher Evan Gattis was a late scratch after straining his right wrist in batting practice. He sat on the bench 5 with a brace. Shortstop Andrelton Simmons left in the eighth with inflammation in his right ankle. The Braves hope neither player misses more than a day or two. “We don’t see anything that is long-term,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Simmons said the pain in his ankle wasn’t intense. “I feel OK; hopefully it goes away quick,” Simmons said. “It’s not like a nine out of 10 pain. It’s not a terrible pain. It’s just a nagging thing.
So hopefully it stops nagging.” Gattis said X-rays on his wrist were negative. He said he had wrist problems in the minors. “Took a couple swings and started feeling sore just out of nowhere,” Gattis said. He said he plans to “take another day and see where I’m at tomorrow.” Jackie Bradley Jr. hit a tworun single during Boston’s four-run rally in the seventh. The Red Sox won two straight over the Braves after coming to Atlanta with a 10-game losing streak, their longest in 20 years. Dustin Pedroia had three hits and Grady Sizemore went 2 for 5 with a go-ahead groundout in the seventh. The Red Sox overcame a five-run deficit on Monday to top Atlanta 8-6. The two straight losses left the Braves feeling unlucky. “Somehow their balls fell down and ours didn’t,” Simmons said. Braves starter Aaron Harang left with a 3-2 lead after the sixth. Anthony Varvaro (1-1) took the loss. Jason Heyward hit a firstinning homer and Chris
Sizemore doubled with one out in the fourth and stole third. Gonzalez challenged the call, but a replay review showed Sizemore was safe. Ross hit a single that made it 2-all. Freddie Freeman’s first triple of the year set up the Braves’ go-ahead run in the Atlanta Braves’ B.J. Upton (2) is safe at third base after over running the bag on a base hit by his brother, Justin Upton, as Boston Red Sox third baseman Brock Holt (26) applies the late tag in the third inning of a baseball game Tuesday, May 27, 2014, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/John Bazemore) Johnson drove in two runs for Atlanta. Harang gave up seven hits before Boston tagged the Braves’ bullpen in the seventh. Varvaro gave up one-out singles to Xander Bogaerts and Dustin Pedroia before left-hander Luis Avilan was summoned to face David Ortiz. Ortiz, batting .283 against left-handers and .263 versus right-handers, hit an RBI single that made it 3-all. A day earlier, he homered and drove in four runs at Turner Field. He drew loud boos in the eighth when he grounded out and then broke his bat over his knee. After Ortiz tied it, Jonny
Gomes’ blooper to right field loaded the bases. Sizemore’s broken-bat groundout drove in Pedroia for a 4-3 lead. After an intentional walk to David Ross, Bradley singled. Jon Lester (5-6) snapped a personal two-game losing streak by giving up three runs and eight hits in six innings. “To come here ... with that streak and end up getting two (wins) here is really big,” Lester said. Koji Uehara worked the ninth for his 11th save. The Braves loaded the bases in the second but didn’t score. Harang hit into a double play, and Heyward’s grounder to Pedroia ended the inning.
fifth. Justin Upton walked and Johnson hit a blooper that fell in right, turning into a runscoring forceout at second. Gomes delivered the defensive highlight of the game with his diving catch on Gerald Laird’s sinking liner in right field in the eighth.

Annie’s Mailbox By Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar
What do you think? Dear Annie: My 95-year-old father, “Fred,” lives on his own, far away from his three children. Until now, Dad has been in good health, even still driving. My siblings and I have been trying to convince Dad to move near one of us so we can care for him, but he refuses. Dad has a girlfriend, “Gina,” whom he met right after Mom died seven years ago. Gina is 20 years younger than Dad. At first, it was companionship that kept them together, but recently, Gina is more of a caregiver. Dad is increasingly dependent on this woman and seems unable to make a decision without consulting her first. (They do not live together.) We see Dad’s health deteriorating, both mentally and physically, and don’t think he is getting the basic care he needs. How do we get him to give up Gina and come live with one of us? Are we doing the right thing to even ask it of him? We just worry we aren’t doing our best for our father. What do you think? -- Confused Daughter Dear Confused: We think you are caring children who want what’s best for your father, but it can be traumatizing and frightening to move to a new city, especially at the age of 95. Dad has been with Gina for seven years and is undoubtedly quite attached to her. She is trying to care for him, but this is a big job. Making these decisions and knowing when Dad is no longer capable of doing so on his own may require professional assistance. We suggest you pay an in-person visit to Dad as soon as possible and assess the situation. Does he need a housekeeper? A full-time caregiver? If he cannot afford in-home services, could you move him to a continuing care facility near Gina? Are there day-care facilities nearby? Would Dad visit you for an extended stay, perhaps becoming familiar with your neighborhood and less resistant to relocating? Contact the Eldercare Locator (eldercare.gov) at 1-800-677-1116 or a private geriatric care manager (caremanager.org) to help you figure out the best plan for Dad. Dear Annie: My twin girls were born 10 weeks premature. They are now 7 months old, so we are getting out more. I understand that people want to coo at babies, and my girls always respond with beautiful smiles. However, touching a baby’s hands can transmit illnesses, as babies frequently put their hands in their mouths. This has happened in church, groceries and doctors’ offices. I don’t want to be rude and ask well-meaning strangers not to touch my daughters, but I also do not want them to get sick. A minor illness to an adult could be life-threatening to a preemie. Please tell your readers that we are happy to stop and chat, but touching any baby should be avoided. -- Proud Mom in Lincoln, Ill. Dear Mom: It is not rude to protect your children, and it can be done politely. Simply say with a smile, “I’d appreciate it if you didn’t touch the twins. They are prone to illness. Thanks so much for understanding.” You also can keep a hand sanitizer nearby. Dear Annie: My former husband and I did not have sex. I was trim, fit and attractive. He lost interest despite my efforts to involve him, including counseling. I finally decided life was too short, and we divorced. My second husband and I had a wonderful sex life until he died. I am now on the “post” side of menopause, and I still want sex. To the women who avoid sex with their husbands, do them a favor and let them go. You want a roommate, and he wants a life partner. -- Still Like Sex Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
HINTS FROM HELOISE HELOISE’S SALT SUBSTITUTE Dear Heloise: Some time ago, you ran a recipe for a salt substitute. I made up a batch and gave it to friends. Now I need it for myself, and I have lost the recipe. Can you please reprint it? -- Jo in Florida Sure can! This healthy salt substitute is great for anyone watching the amount of salt he or she eats. You need: 5 teaspoons onion powder 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 tablespoon paprika 1 tablespoon dry mustard 1 teaspoon thyme 1/2 teaspoon white pepper (or black, if preferred) 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds Mix all ingredients together. Place in a tightly sealed container and store with your other spices (don’t forget to label the container!) in a cool, dry place. If you would like other seasoning recipes, along with sauces and hints on food substitutes, order my Heloise’s Seasonings, Sauces and Substitutes pamphlet by sending $3 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (70 cents) envelope to: Heloise/SSS, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. In a hurry? Marinate meat in a simple mixture of equal parts soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Delicious! -- Heloise

HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Wednesday, May 28, 2014: This year you come up with many different ideas for friends and professional associates. Others sometimes wonder where these intellectual gems come from, but they enjoy their usefulness regardless. If you are single, people find you to be a charming conversationalist. By midsummer, you’ll have many potential sweeties to choose from. Ask yourself what kind of relationship you want first. Do not minimize your need for companionship. If you are attached, the two of you never seem to want for a topic of conversation. You might not always agree, but you respect your different ideas and processes. When you meet a fellow GEMINI, you might not see a similarity unless you detach, as all of you are multifaceted. 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 You will be more expressive than you have been in a while. You could have a chance for a special new beginning because of your willingness to face facts. You’re determined to accomplish what you want. Others can’t help but be drawn toward you. Tonight: Strut your stuff. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) HHH You will put yourself on the line, if need be. You’ll feel as if you have a lot to offer, and you might want to let others know. Know that they likely have strong feelings as to what they want to do. Respond to an offer from a friend who cares a lot about you. Tonight: Let it happen. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) HHHH You’ll have so much going on that you can barely keep up with a situation. You might want to let others know more of what is going on with you. Someone knows how to make your imagination work overtime. Be aware of your natural limits. Tonight: All smiles. CANCER (June 21-July 22) HHHH Your intuition will guide you. You might need some time by yourself to do some intense thinking. A roommate or family member could lose his or her patience. A friend in the know will reveal much more of what is going on with this person. Tonight: Play it lowkey. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) HHHHH Zero in on what makes the most sense. You might not be ready to declare your thoughts about a personal matter just yet, but you will make a considerable effort to initiate this discussion. Someone enjoys your company. Tonight: Where your friends are. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) HHH You might want to deal with a loved one directly. An element of the unexpected seems to run through an important decision. You know where and how to spend your money, but a key associate or loved one might have a different idea of what works. Tonight: In the spotlight. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) HHHH You can meet any demand that comes your way. Your creativity seems to wander from one area of life to another. The answers you seek are a high priority in your mind. You could find that someone else doesn’t see things the same way. Tonight: A must appearance. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) HHHHH Relate to a partner directly. You’ll have an important decision to make, but first you might prefer to have a discussion on the topic. You will want to be sure of yourself when you finally decide to act. Your imagination could help your approach. Tonight: Enjoy a break. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) HHHH You know how to bend for the well-being of the group. You have high energy and a sense of direction. Friends play a significant role in your decision-making process. Indulge a loved one who plays a significant role in your life. Tonight: Be more of a pal to a key person. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) HHHH You could be quite involved with a friend who adds considerable happiness to your daily life. You might need to maintain a nice, even pace to accomplish what you must. Use your instincts with a message, and you will choose the right words. Tonight: Let the good times roll. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) HHHHH You might want to be
spontaneous. Use your sixth sense with an associate or a very playful friend. Explain your expectations as clearly as possible, and it will help others relax. Everyone has his or her strengths; use yours well. Tonight: Act as if it were Friday! PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) HHH You’ll need to hone your juggling skills as you attempt to balance an intellectual discussion with an intense premonition and a sense of destiny. You might have difficulty integrating these different concepts, as you could feel a little off-kilter. Tonight: Head home.

It’s not a new idea. In fact, The Westfield News has been providing readers with “hyper local” news coverage of Westfield, Southwick, and the Hilltowns all along. Television, radio and regional newspapers only provide fleeting coverage of local issues you care about. TV stations and big newspaper publishers, after years of cutbacks and mergers, frankly aren’t able to provide in-depth coverage of smaller markets anymore.
When it comes to 21st century multimedia platforms, “hyper local” is a term you hear a lot.
