Majority rules

Worcester’s lone majority-minority district hasn’t attracted diversity among its candidates MEDAL OF HONOR: The ceremony to unveil the new Front Street (same as the old Front Street) which connects downtown to Washington Square takes place on Thursday, giving Worcesterites the ability to look through where the mall once stood. Even the 2/3 of residents that were born after the Galleria demolished the downtown are impressed. Memorial Day weekend comes and goes with good weather, relatively uncongested roads and plenty of parades and ceremonies honoring our country’s fallen veterans. City Manager Michael O’Brien inducts 12 local teens to the Worcester Youth Council, which will engage young people in civic life, and address the needs of at-risk Worcester youth between the ages of 14 and 21, research topics relevant to today’s youth and provide formal recommendations to the appropriate legislative bodies. The Worcester Business Journal reports that Verizon’s 4G LTE network has expanded to include Worcester’s Main Street and parts of Routes 9 and 12. Will this stop the city council from blasting Verizon’s shoddy cell phone coverage on the west side? Probably not. DISHONORABLE DISCHARGE: 17 year old stabbed in the abdomen on Vernon Street, a shooting on Pleasant Street leads to the arrest of a 20 year old, a vice squad prostitution sting nabs six (three from out of town) and a bouncer at the La Raza night club is charged with Armed Assault with Attempt to Murder after stabbing a patron in the bathroom. Worcester Regional Research Bureau report shows that while property crime in Worcester has dropped 30 percent in the past 15 years, violent crime remains steady. Among the ten largest New England cities, Worcester ranks 5th in terms of violent crime. Saying we’re safer than Springfield and Hartford just doesn’t carry the weight it used to. The WPD disputes some of the WRRB’s methodology. A body is found floating in the Patch Reservoir over the weekend. The Worcester Police Department told the Telegram & Gazette that no foul play “has been determined at this time.” CoreLogic, a leading provider of consumer, financial and property information, says Worcester County foreclosure rates drop .39 percent between March 2011 and March 2012. The county’s 2.55 percent foreclosure rate is higher than the state average but lower than the 3.41 percent US average.

ith new congressional and statehouse lines re-drawn late last year after the release of the 2010 US Census results, advocates seeking better representation of minority communities celebrated a recent announcement from the state’s redistricting committee that doubled the number of majority-minority districts in Massachusetts from 10 to 20. What that means is districts for state representative or state senator whose voting population of African Americans, Latinos and Asians will outnumber the amount of registered white voters. Included in that new group is Worcester’s 15th state representative district, which stretches from Shrewsbury to Piedmont streets and has a slew of candidates vying to take over an incumbent-less seat after twenty-year Rep. Vincent Pedone stepped down in January. The creation of a 15th district with more non-white voters than white voters didn’t happen accidentally. A number of groups and left-leaning politicians across the state encouraged the Legislative Committee on Redistricting to create as many majority-minority districts as possible in places that made sense. Some even testifing before a redistricting committee hearing at Clark University last fall advocating for the creation of one in Worcester. But with signature papers due and the names on the ballot finalized for the November election, of the six candidates running for the district 15 seat (five Democrats, one Republican) only one can claim non-white ethnicity, while the frontrunners are three white women. (With the relatively few amount of women in statehouse, this is notable in itself.) While School Committee member Dianna Biancheria, City Councilor Kate Toomey and Pleasant Street Neighborhood Network Center Executive Director and former city council candidate Mary Keefe – all Democrats – have the upper-hand in name recognition, political networks and money, Ralph Perez, who will run against

those three and Frank Beshai – another familiar name in local politics – is the only minority candidate on the ballot. (The winner of the Democratic primary will face Republican Brian O’Malley in the general election. It’s not difficult to discern his ethnicity.) Perez, who ran for city council in 2011 but didn’t make it through the primary vote, says he’s not concerned that the region’s only majority-minority district has attracted such a large and notable crowd of whites seeking to represent it. “I have nothing against these other candidates,” he says, but he beleives that his experiences growing up in poverty and coming from a minority background helps him relate to the district better. It shows in his agenda for the district: keeping kids in school and continuing to support them as they leave the Worcester Public Schools for college or trade school and a focus to cut down on violence. Gordon Davis, a local African American civil rights advocate who initially thought of running as an unenrolled candidate, points out similar challenges in the district, citing the school to prison pipeline as one of District 15’s most significant challenges. He stopped his campaign before gathering enough signatures however, in part because of a disability (Davis is legally blind) and because Keefe announced. (When it comes to social stances and education reform, Davis says “her views are similar to mine.”) But what attracted him to the race initially was the district’s demographic shift. “It was one of the reasons I was going to run. I thought I could add something to the mix,” he says. He adds that if Keefe loses in the primary he plans to run as a write-in candidate. But redistricting watchers say majorityminority districts aren’t necessarily for vaulting candidates from non-white communities into office. “The goal of majority-minority districts is not to electe candidates of color,” says MassVOTE Executive Director Avi Green. Instead, it’s to entice those who do run for those seats to pay attention to the needs of communities under-represented in

politics. “Either is perfectly fine.” Neighbor to Neighbor, a grassroots organization that — among other activities — does endorsements and Get Out The Vote campaigns for preferred candidates, hasn’t made an endorsement in the 15th district race yet, but isn’t counting on skin color. “As long as the candidate represents our mission,” says Lynn Norris, pointing to their concerns about health care, education and economic development. Winning Neighbor to Neighbor’s endorsement means a candidate has to be progressive and represent a low-income or working-class community. “That’s exactly how we feel,” she says of Green’s comment that it’s more important for the district to have an elected official that represents the minority community rather than have a politician who is from the minority community. It’s not quite enough for Davis, though. “I’m sort of disappointed that it was not more talked about, at least,” he says about having a field of white candidates dominating a brand new majorityminority district. It’s not all bad news on that front, however. According to Luzmar Centeno, spokeswoman for Latino advocacy group ¿Oiste?, five Worcesterites will graduate in June from their Initiative for Diversity in Civic Leadership course, a 16 week training that teaches minority candidate leadership, public administration, public policy and campaign skills. The course’s most famous graduate would be Boston City Councilor Tito Jackson. Unfortunately, those currently enrolled have already missed the cutoff for this year’s election. (Unless they run a write in campaign.) Neighbor to Neighbor has similar plans. Hoping to recreate success they’ve had in Lynn, Mass. where a member of the group was elected to School Committee, locally Norris says “In the future Neighbor to Neighbor hopes to have its own candidate” – someone who’s both a member of their group and a person of color. Davis adds that skin color doesn’t make a candidate unqualified. In fact, he points

andy Ormo is no non-partisan. Involved in Democratic politics and himself once flirting with a run for public office (he pulled signature papers for Worcester City Council in 2011), it doesn’t mean he can’t be bi-partisan. In fact, that’s what he’d like to see more of. “Both parties are so dug in nothing’s going to move them except something from outside government,” he told a small gathering of people at the Worcester Public Library earlier this month as he showed off his idea for a nation-wide forum for civil, informed and nonpartisan political discussion: a website called Dialogs at the Agora. The website, once it goes live (the presentation at the library was meant to attract more volunteers to help him finish – Ormo says the site is 85 percent ready), would focus on state and national political questions. Members could

tackle difficult and divisive subjects like healthcare or tax reform anonymously and, most importantly, without political affiliation; an exchange of ideas without labels, and with unbiased source documents to back up arguments. For instance, James from Ohio couldn’t go by the name GOPJim and make an argument against single-payer healthcare citing a report from the Heritage Foundation. “We need to get a way for people to agree without knowing they’re agreeing,” Ormo says, believing, that the partisan divide is so great in Congress and among the voting public that just hearing an idea proposed by “the other side” is enough to mobilize people against it without first judging it on merit. Not only that, according to a survey he handed out among the small group of people, the audience generally agreed that “politicians and their inner circles gauge political risk and often act accordingly” continued on page 7

out that among the three big names, each deal with race or class issues through their work on School Committee, the Worcester Housing Authority, City Council or the Neighborhood Center. But, he’s noticed that they’re avoiding talk of race in the early stages of the campaign. “They’re not saying I can represent both communities, or that I can represent Shrewsbury Street as well as Main South.� Instead of faulting the crop of candidates, Perez sees a different issue in regards to the redistricting and creation of a majorityminority district: he believes the moving of polling places will confuse or inconvenience the district’s elderly or immigrant communities from voting on Election Day. “It’s confusing,� he says. “People have always voted in that same building or that same church. People still live in the same house, now they got to vote somewhere else?� He adds, “When you disrupt something like that you have no intention of having them actually come out and vote.� Jeremy Shulkin may be reached at jshulkin@worcestermag.com.

On-line comments Worcesteria 5/24/12 It figures that some of our less intelligent City Councilors would look to cut the library budget. The library is already closed on Sundaya and every Monday. Three of the five days a week that it is open, it has to close at 5:30. It should be open seven days a week and at least 5 days it should be open until 9 P.M. 1,500 people a day go to the main branch of the Worcester Public Library. It is one of the few reasons people have to go downtown. Councilors with brains would keep it open more days and longer hours, to get more people downtown. Councilors always say they want more people downtown. Well, put your money where your mouths are. Open the library more hours and more days. It is also a great place for kids to go and stay out of trouble. Submitted online by LIBRARY IS A TREASURE The Councilors owns comments prove they are wrong in going to a single tax rate . They all admit you can’t do it all at once or more people will lose their homes, more middle class will leave the city, and fewer people would be hurt than if you went to a single tax rate all at once. That is like like telling me, that you are going to kill me, but you are not going to kill me right away. You will torture me before you kill me. A single tax rate is a killer of the middle class. That is why so many BIG CITIES have the duel tax rate. You can not compare cities tax rates to small towns. They are two totally different animals. Petty, Eddy Rushton, Germain Toomey, and Economou are the Councilors who voted to raise the tax rate on homes by almost one dollar per thousand dollar of valuation. They also voted to decrease the tax rate on businesses by $5.57 per thousand dollars. These Councilors are clueless. They can kill the middle class quickly or slowly. The point is, their actions are the beginning of the end of a middle class living, staying, and moving into Worcester. They will turn Worcester into the next Lawrence or lowell. This is a sad day for Worcester.” Submitted online by EXPERT ADVICE

Food Truck Festival comes to Worcester Worcester would be on the cutting edge with many trucks at this point if councilors had a shred of common sense. Its pretty sad we have to be behind the 8 ball on so many things. There was no re-inroduction a year after the ordinance, and no impact report on how it effected vendors...piss poor actions on the part of government. Worcester, with its creative community could certainly lead if given the chance. I for one will not be attending this festival...its spit in the eyes of the remaininf vendors who were not put out of business by the current ordinance. Submitted online by BS

City council live blog 5/22/12: Taxation without documentation The most disgusting presentation last night was by Lenny Z., the president of the Worcester Teacher’s Union. He advocated for higher taxes for his fellow teachers, the parents,school bus drivers, school custodians, etc. What planet is this guy on? He sold out the average working stiffs to advocate for lower taxes for businesses and higher taxes for the average working Joe. He advocated for the tax rate that the Chamber of Commerce advocated for. A tax rate that took money out of the pockets of every homeowner and rent payer. This clueless individual should be voted out of office by his union members. He sold them down the drain. This is a perfect example of why the average working person who does belong to a union, no longer listens to their union leaders when it comes to political issues. The union leaders, as in this case, have sold out to the other side. Submitted online by HYPOCRITE FINDER

and “special interests with lots of money disproportionately skew the shape of solutions.” Dialogs at the Agora would eliminate the partisanship by simply not allowing it. Solutions proposed by anonymous users, once generating enough interest, would later reveal how many of the sites users support it by political party, revealing if an idea was truly bi-partisan. Ormo points out that there are only 535 people legislating federal government tasked with representing a country north of 300 million. “I think there are solutions by people outside of congress.” The idea for the website, he says, goes back to the Federalist Papers published in newspapers and as essays by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay to promote the ratification of the US Constitution: by publishing under the names “Publius,” the writers placed more weight on their ideas than on their names. “This is not a new idea. It’s over 200 years old. The technology might be different,” he allows. “[But] anonymity is at the center.” Ormo says for now he’s avoiding local politics even in a city the size of Worcester. “Politics on the local level doesn’t require a website because you can go next door to your neighbors house.” But it could lead to regional discussions. The goal for threads on the website that touch on topics important enough, or get enough support, would be to bring them forward into charrettes, broadcast to other sites across states or the country, where participants could interact in real time, still with the unbiased supporting documents. “It would also allow for the asking of questions as raised in real time by the participants.” Currently, Ormo is the only person with his name attached, but he says a media consultant in New York, a Worcester lawyer and an IT department head at a New Hampshire college are

involved. In keeping with the site’s theme of anonymity, he hesitates to give their names. Ormo plans another public discussion and “unveiling” of the site in the fall, and is still seeking interested participants to help him do some of the lifting before it goes live. The idea for the site and any off-shoot charrettes, he says, is enticing particularly because it gives some influence over the discussion back to the people. “[Politicians] are afraid they won’t be able to control the discussion,” he says. “Which is exactly what we want.” Jeremy Shulkin may be reached at jshulkin@worcestermag.com.

JOSÉ FOR MAYOR?

Pity the national bloggers and online news website content-fillers who take everything José Canseco writes on Twitter as gospel. Here in Worcester, we can just sit back and enjoy the ride as he continues his baseball career with the Tornadoes. The Internet lit up Monday night after Canseco tweeted that he wanted to run for office and then listed off problems facing select Massachusetts towns (though no mention of Worcester). He did, however, come out as pro-teacher, writing, “Who are the haters screwing with the teachers in Leominster I need to slap them teachers are gold.” And while Joe Petty (or whoever else runs in 2013) probably doesn’t have to worry about a Canseco running in the mayoral campaign, they should be thanking him for a short and sweet Monday tweet: “I LOVE Woostah.” Considering he has around 475,000 followers on the social media site, it could be the best piece of branding that the city’s seen since Choose Worcester collapsed. We can just see the city’s newest slogan coming into form now: “Worcester: If José Canseco loves it, then you can too.”

MATHLETES: On Tuesday night, Worcester Public Schools Superintendent Melinda Boone and CFO Brian Allen brought their 2013 budget to the city council and asked for an additional $5 million in funding for additional teacher positions, school nurses, an expansion of science lab equipment and expanding course certifications. That $5 million ask by the administration is nothing compared to what members of the Citywide Parent Planning and Advisory Council wanted — $9.3 million, or 3 percent over the foundation budget required by the state. It became clear very quickly that neither the $9.3 million nor the $5 million asks would be funded, as that money would come out of the mostly set-in-stone city-side budget. Instead, talk turned to what was absolutely needed, with many councilors saying classes with more than 26 elementary students was unacceptable. The final decision seemed to be councilors holding off on passing the budget to allow more time for numbers to come in from the Massachusetts School Building Authority and to come up with a little more money for the schools, probably in the area of $500,000 allocated in good faith for elementary school teachers; though the number of teacher positions, which that money would fund, would only alleviate a fraction of the 91 classrooms across the district projected to have more than 26 students. When Boone was asked point blank by City Councilor Konnie Lukes if her budget, as presented, would meet state mandates and her personal goals, Boone replied with a firm “no.” When asked why not, she added that, “One of the things I don’t believe in is putting numbers out there for hype.” ... Those in charge of allocating more money to the schools should hope that Canseco doesn’t hear about this funding debate, lest some of them be slapped for hatin’.

McGovern (D-Worcester) will make it to the general election without an official challenger on the GOP side, and his former opponents from the 2010 race have moved on as well. 2010 Republican nominee Marty Lamb, who was redistricted out of McGovern’s new MA-2 legislative district, continues his run against Carol Dykema for the 8th Middlesex state representative seat. Just like 2010, when he campaigned with “sick of congress” barf bags and dropped off acorns and scissors at the McGovern offices, he’s continued with the gimmicks, this time handing out packets of Marty Lamb “money plant” seeds to grow the economyand personal savings. …Patrick Barron, who ran an independent campaign against McGovern and Lamb, has set up a website called DefiningTheMachine.com and is giving presentations about money shuffling between congressional members. Barron says that the number of leadership political action committees (PACs), basically secondary bank accounts that congressional members use to send money to support other campaigns, has jumped from 42 in 1996 to 373 currently. He’s currently speaking to Tea Party groups (though he says the issue is bipartisan) and is crafting a candidate pledge that would ask those running for office to not give or accept donations to or from other politicians and to not open a PAC. Barron says his presentation “makes a very credible argument that this is corrupt.” Want more Worcesteria during the week? Check worcestermag.com and follow @JeremyShulkin on Twitter.

T

hey are the overlooked. At the New England Dream Center, members of society who are as easily forgotten as yesterday’s weather arrive by shuttle. They lounge in the airy rooms of what was once a church modeled after the cathedral at Notre Dame, warmly greeting visitors. It’s no small irony that strangers are welcomed here by the very citizens who find doors closed to them every day. Over the past few decades funding for the mentally ill – that is, the neurologically challenged – has dried up and nearly disappeared; the poorest and most vulnerable among us always take the biggest hits, it seems. A small but dedicated staff works mightily to ensure that the overlooked are not only remembered, but appreciated and loved. NEDC’s Adult Day Care program, located at 5 Chestnut St. is a worship center delivering daily doses of hope. NEDC activity director Zach Beshai waits for me at the door while smiling clients shake my hand in every room. The Beshai family is dedicated to the workings of the center – Zach’s mom Gayle is a professional hair stylist who donates her skills by providing haircuts and his dad Frank is a member of the Board of Directors. Zach’s enthusiasm for the center’s mission proves infectious, as he leads me on a tour of a grand building once slated for demolition, saved only by the creation of the Dream Center. As sunlight streams through stained glass, the salvaging of structure and soul begs comparison. Following my tour of the facilities, I’m treated to a casual spread of cheese and crackers by Zach, Chief Operations Officer George Cladis, Program Director Gregg Thomas and Program Aid Meggan Cantlin. A brief history of the center tells the story of a ministry begun by Pastor Will Bard 15 years ago, but the staff is eager to impart the significance of NEDC’s immediate future — specifically, the Joyful Concert Series slated to begin June 1, 2012. The free concert series will offer great local music every Friday from now through August — and all performers are donating their time and talents at no charge. These noontime celebrations create a vibe of excitement for the program’s

clients, who view the center as their home away from home. Among those artists generously sharing their gifts will be Cara Brindisi, Sheez Late, The Worcester Academy of Music and The Hip Swayers. A full line-up can be found at joyfulconcert.com. Like many residents of Worcester, I’ve often wondered just what those white shuttle buses with the center’s logo were all about. I tend to be a skeptic when it comes to programs that are affiliated with big-name religious organizations. NEDC is an off-shoot of Liberty Churches, but my visit to the center answered many of my questions. The program is a full medical model, with nursing, physical, occupational and speech therapists onsite. MassHealth Insurance provides the payments that keep the engines running, and all participants are approved by MHI. Many of the clients are in the 50+ age range, and so have endured for decades a wall of indifference and scorn that separates them from society. At the NEDC, self-expression leads to selfesteem. Writing, crochet, drama and landscaping groups are only a few of the activities available. The goal of the center is to provide access to a life outside the one so many have been forced to inhabit: a stagnant world of isolation and depression. In a book of poetry entitled “Hands,” clients express themselves in ways no reporter could properly convey with quotes. Sightless Frances B. penned these poignant lines in her untitled poem: Learning to hang my clothes on my own A simple task for others But I have to adapt To learn I fold with my hands For I cannot see When I touch an object I recreate it in my mind I imagine circles, squares and octagons And I fill my world With the shapes I cannot see Thanks to the New England Dream Center, Frances sees light where once there was only darkness.

While many of us still think we’re making a cutting-edge contribution to the future of the planet by drinking water from a tap instead of a plastic bottle, the faculty and students at Worcester’s colleges and universities are at the forefront of generating new eco-ideas and green innovations in a wide range of fields.

Take Mingjaing Tao for instance. Tao sees millions of miles of green opportunity in U.S. roads and highways. An associate professor of civil and environmental engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Tao is working on ways to increase the quality and performance of reclaimed asphalt pavement, or RAP. “The technology for reclaiming asphalt has been used for a couple of decades,” he said, adding there are still some technical hurdles. The high levels of heat used to process RAP limits the amount of recycled material that can be used to produce pavement that can hold up under heavy traffic and different weather conditions. “The current state of the practice is to reclaim 15 to 20 percent of existing roadway and add 80 to 85 percent virgin material,” explained Tao, who wants to flip those percentages. Recycling RAP at lower temperatures with different additives would allow more asphalt to go back on the roads instead of into landfills. The lower temperatures would reduce carbon emission and the higher rate of recycling would conserve resources. And it would save tax payers a lot of money. Tao has been working with different graduate students as well as colleague Rajib Mallick, another WPI associate professor of civil and environmental engineering who also has his eye on asphalt. Mallick has been looking at the possibility of transferring the heat that collects in asphalt to water running just below the surface of roadways. The heat could be used to generate electricity, and the process of drawing out of the asphalt could cool urban areas and significantly reduce the energy used to keep temperatures down in buildings. It’s solar energy without all the panels. With projects such as this, Worcester’s campuses are taking a leading role in building a green economy. While a lot of the innovation is being driven by science and engineering, Worcester’s colleges are also pushing the edge of green philosophical and economic issues with research that may help develop the policies of a sustainable society.

WORCESTER’S HIGHER EDUCATION PROVIDES INCENTIVES FOR GREEN INNOVATION field that began to take shape when science and industry acknowledged that something needed to be done about the hazardous waste generated in labs and factories.

Worcester State University has been one of the nation’s pioneer institutions in laying the groundwork for green, sustainable chemistry. According to Margaret Kerr, an associate professor of chemistry at WSU, green chemistry is about developing alternative, sustainable processes in manufacturing and science. And that’s not easy. “Basically, 75 to 80 percent of the chemicals we know and love are difficult to replace,” said Kerr. “We really do need certain chemicals in our products.” Kerr and her students have started to re-imagine chemistry, and they’ve started with themselves. They’ve looked at how chemistry is traditionally taught, and redesigned a chemistry curriculum for students in Worcester’s middle and high schools. And Kerr has helped make the concept of green chemistry accessible to non-science majors by introducing them to atom economy, which involves looking at how many atoms were in an original substance, and how many ended up in the ultimate product. A large number of missing atoms reveal how much waste is taking place. “It’s the way we should be thinking about our all our manufacturing and our products,” said Kerr. In 2008, Kerr spent six months in Thailand lecturing on green chemistry while watching the roaring Asian economy in action. She brought back a new sense of urgency about the threat traditional chemical practices in a rapidly expanding manufacturing economy pose to the environment. Still, she acknowledges that green chemistry hasn’t yet provided a lot of answers. “I feel like we are laying the groundwork and it’s the

next generation who will be designing the solutions,” she said.

GREEN POWER

John Orr has taught electrical engineering at WPI for 35 years. He believes finding cleaner, alternative sources of energy is the key to sustainability. Orr’s own work is centered on large scale battery-based electricity storage systems.

“Some people look at the problems with energy and worry, and some see it as a challenge,” said Orr. “WPI is happy to take on those challenges.” At WPI’s Fuel Cell Center faculty, students are working on hydrogen-powered fuel cells that generate energy with no emissions or waste. The technology needed to produce small amounts of hydrogen to power the cells doesn’t exist yet, but researchers at WPI believe it will be developed sometime within the next couple of decades, and they’ll be ready when that happens. James Van de Ven, an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at WPI, has been researching energy conversion and storage and seems to be on the way to developing an hydraulic hybrid engine. The goal is to produce a hybrid vehicle that would cost a fraction of today’s generation of electric cars. Alex Dilorio, director of WPI’s Bioprocess Center, is working to redeem the ethanol industry by studying the stomach contents of termites. Dilorio figures if he can copy the way the bugs break down the wood and plants they eat into sugar, he’ll be able to produce ethanol from woody plants and leave the grains for people. “New ways to produce energy are just on the horizon,” said Orr, who added that he believes nuclear fusion has a potentially large and important role in green energy. Orr said there has been a lot of funding for energy research from the U.S. Dept of Energy and the National Science Foundation. “And there’s always money from private industry to support research once things start to look usable,” he said. But the real force behind WPI’s success with green and clean technology is the faculty and students. “We have great students who desire to do something environmentally important,” he said.

built many of the Guilded Age’s trophy buildings including the Worcester Art Museum, City Hall, the Worcester Post Office and a slew of churches, schools and homes throughout the city.

The Norcross Brothers and their two pretty homes are symbols of success from New England’s 19th century rise of industrialism. But the Norcross brothers moved out more than a century ago and the current tenant, Clark University’s George Perkins Marsh Institute, is now focused on a new economic era and the challenges that have emerged from man’s complicated relationship with the environment. The Marsh Institute is home to a wide variety of faculty and student research on environmental issues and policy questions. It’s also the home of the Institute for Energy and Sustainability (IES), which describes itself as central New England’s green business zone. Senior program advisor Chris Noonan says that IES is working to create a green business cluster focused on market and employment opportunities in green and clean energy and technology. “We are fostering a culture of green innovation,” said Noonan who added that IES is the bridge between people who have great ideas and business resources that can help them get off the ground. According to the latest numbers from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, which teamed up with Clark to launch IES, the timing for green zones, clusters and innovations couldn’t be better. Massachusetts now has 4,909 clean tech and energy firms and more than 64,000 residents, or 1.5 percent of the state’s total work force, is working in some type of clean energy employment. The numbers are a little puffed. Not all those jobs are full time, and not all those firms are exclusively focused on clean energy. Roughly a third of the firms that were interviewed for the report said about 25 percent of their business involved something to do with clean energy. Still, even critics of clean energy investments see the fact the green economic sector is reaching into other companies as a sign of how entrenched green business is becoming. Noonan believes clean and green technology has already proven that it’s an economic winner. “During the recession, all sectors of the economy dipped and despite that national trend, clean energy is a sector where we’ve seen growth,” he said. Still, we should be seeing clean industry growth, especially when you consider the $33 billion in federal and stimulus money that was earmarked for green jobs and companies. Some policy analysts have raised concerns about the next phase of green tech and green innovation that those federal funds are running low. Noonan also feels that a societal shift is now in play that may help green industry growth. “Culturally, it seems like a lot of people have reflected on a shortage of resources and that’s been motivation to change their lifestyles,” he said.

There’s no doubt that Worcester’s large student population is embracing green industry, but there have been some problems in other pockets of the city.

and towns that have signed on to the Green Communities program get a crack at recouping some of that money which is awarded for different projects such as installing LED street lights and upgrading to energy efficient heating systems. But to earn Green Community status, cities and towns have to meet certain requirements. They need to switch municipal vehicles over to fuel efficient models, adopt an energy plan, streamline permitting for alternative energy projects such as wind turbines and they must adopt the stretch code — a new set of construction requirements that boosts the energy efficiency of new homes and buildings by 30 percent. The stretch code requirement has been a hard sell in some places. The construction industry was stunned that the state would pick the end of a recession with the housing market still stuck in a slump as the time to roll out the stretch code, which is said to add about $10,000 to the cost of a new home. Worcester joined the ranks of green communities in 2010 and has since picked up a few green community grant awards including more than $800,000 to assist with implementing the stretch code. Meanwhile, the surcharge on electricity bills was initially not much of an issue until it was announced that National Grid customers would be picking up the $4 billion tab for energy purchased from Cape Wind, the large offshore wind farm slated to go up in Nantucket Sound next year. Worcester, like most other large cities, is hoping to be a green corridor thriving with green companies and jobs. And while it has the unique resources of student power and faculty-driven cutting-edge research, it is also competing with other communities that hope to become the same type of green hub. Still, Noonan points to a string of successes that include National Grid’s decision to base a smart grid project in Worcester. The new digital grid will be able to track energy output and use. And the city now has a string of recharging

One such local entrepreneur is Jon Friedman, who will soon be growing vegetables with his new green business, Freight Farm. Friedman is using retired shipping containers as a space for hydroponic gardens. “Our concept is pretty unique, but the science isn’t a breakthrough,” said Friedman. But overcoming a lack of available farming space to produce fresh produce is an idea that has, as Friedman puts it, “Starbuck potential.” Clark’s green research arm focuses a lot of attention on social and economic policy.

strategy. Stephens suggests that the strong focus on business rather than civic groups, organizations and neighborhoods may be a missed opportunity to engage more stakeholders in green growth and change. Among Worcester’s students, a green cluster makes sense. It’s a logical next step in the green intellectual and personal growth that colleges and universities spend four years trying to develop.

GREEN LIVING

Steve Bandarra had spent 20 years building a technology consulting business in Northampton when he decided to make the jump to a green job.

It wasn’t a huge stretch. In Northampton, Bandarra had launched a computer recycling program and headed up a green initiatives committee for the Northampton Chamber of Commerce, so it wasn’t much of a surprise when he went

back to school to study sustainability management, a field that didn’t exist the first time he had to pick a major. He is now the sustainability coordinator at Worcester State, which made the Princeton Review’s “Guide to 286 Green Colleges” two years in a row. Instead of offering “network therapy” to tech-challenged businesses, Bandarra now looks for ways the WSU campus can conserve water, cut energy use and turn its food service waste into industrial compost or, as he calls it, “dirt on crack.” And don’t even get him started on netzero buildings (a building with zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions). “A sustainability manager is really a project manager, we look at different parts of the campus and try to find places to make improvements,” he said. “I wanted to be in higher education sustainability because I believe they are leading the way.” Worcester’s college campuses are ecoenclaves where building managers are incorporating aggressively green practices, technologies and goals.

issues in terms of a fair distribution of energy resources. “Much of the world has such a great need of energy,” he said. “We should all have some moral responsibility for that. If we help the rest of the world to advance, we all advance.” It’s unlikely that anyone at WPI or in the city of Worcester would argue that point. But for some students, accepting moral responsibility for environmental injustice isn’t quite enough. Students for a Just and Stable Future is to the environmental movement what Students for a Democratic Society was to campus activist during the ’60s, only more focused and peaceful. A chapter of the organization was launched at WPI in the wake of last year’s conflict between students and administrators over the decision to invite Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson to speak at

The presidents of Clark and Holy Cross have also signed the climate commitment. “Sustainability is about the whole picture, the whole lifestyle,” said Bandarra. But upgrading buildings and launching campus recycling centers and conservation efforts are the easier parts of fostering a generation of green leaders and innovators.

At WPI, Orr heads up the President’s Task Force on Sustainability, a group of faculty members, students and staff who have taken on the task of leading and coordinating the school’s conservation and sustainability efforts, which include making sustainability part of academics and research. “The charge is very broad,” said Orr. “We oversee all aspects of sustainability, including economic and social justice issues.” Orr, sees many of those social justice

At Holy Cross, the university vows to be carbon neutral by 2040, as a central thermostat controls and monitors the temperature in buildings throughout the campus, while facilities managers track heat loss with an infrared camera. Clark has meticulously cataloged its carbon emissions and offsets them with investments in wind power and a recycling program that carts waste to an incinerator where it’s burned to generate electricity. Quinsigamond Community College’s new Science and Technology Building was designed with a carbon neutral energy system and materials and control systems that meet the best green building practices. “We are not waiting for things to be in place,” said Bandarra. “We are trying to make things happen on our own.” But not entirely on their own. State and federal funding paid the $560,000 tab for a solar panel system on the roof of the learning Resource Center. The photovoltaic array generates about 140,000 kilowatt hours of electricity a years, or enough to power about 20 homes. Bandarra said his job is to help WSU reach the goals outlined in the American College & University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, a sweeping pledge to eliminate carbon emission from campus operations and to promote curriculum

The following list of projects is a small sample of the green research students have been working on over the past few years:

WORCESTER STATE UNIVERSITY Digging up the dirt on Worcester’s brownfields: A comparison of brownfield remediation techniques Nicholas Charette The conventional method of cleaning up toxic land sites, or brownfields, involves costly soil excavation and disposal. This study looks at the alternative practice of mycoremediation, which uses fungi or mushrooms to decontaminate sites.

Red tide rising: The relationship between runoff and algal bloom frequency Cassem Chebbani This study uses historic rainfall data and computer climate models to examine the correlation between nutrient-rich run off and the occurrence of Red Tide, a naturally occurring toxic algal bloom that causes Paralytic Shellfish Poisoning, a potentially fatal syndrome in humans.

Coastal wave erosion Ryan Dahlberg Wave action can be one of the most aggressive forms of coastal erosion. This study evaluates different areas of the Massachusetts coast using MassGis bathymetric and terrain data, severe weather patterns, and concepts of fluid dynamics to determine which parts of the shoreline are most vulnerable to extensive wave-action erosion. Incorporating hydroelectric facilities into beach protectant structures An analysis of several beaches and the possibility of using hydroelectric power to create beach protectants, or structures, to preserve coastal environments under threat from climate change and physical ocean processes.

What a dump! Environmental restoration and remediation: changing the landscape of pre-subtitled landfills Hannah-Leigh O’Brien For years, Massachusetts has been capping landfills with layers of different materials and building youth athletic fields on the surface. The heavy metals buried in landfills pose an environmental health risk in those recreational areas and their surface waters.

Forest and land-use change within West Boylston and Northborough Karissa Booth, Nikole Vetter This study examined land use and forest change in West Boylston and Northborough. Both communities experienced changes in forestation due to new roads, houses and businesses, as well as environmental factors such as agricultural abandonment, forest fires and exotic pests. Both areas appear to be experiencing a decline in forests after a century of increase.

Landfill overflows and their environmental impacts: Saving our ashes in Shrewsbury Michael Corron In March, 2010, water and ash from the Wheelabrator Landfill in Shrewsbury flooded into a wooded area and wetlands. The ash is suspected of containing high concentrations of toxic heavy metals cadmium and lead. This study analyzed random soil samples for heavy metal content.

Laura Merner researched the causes of cypress forest mortality in New Orleans. Kate Del Vechio studied the relationship of land development patterns and water use in Ipswich. Stephanie Oleksyk studied the use of oxidizing agents to decompose pollutants in groundwater.

WPI Kite Power

The WPI Kite Power Team, Michael DeCuir, Max Hurgin, Christopher Colschen, Erik Lovejoy, Nicholas Simone, and Ryan Buckley, all aerospace or mechanical engineering-aerospace majors, researched the possibility of harnessing wind power from tethered kites as a low cost and sustainable energy alternative for developing nations. Two billion people live in developing parts of the world without access to electricity. Wind turbines are a possible renewable source, but their high cost and low use potential in less windy regions create steep disadvantages. The Kite team proposes installing a kite-power system in Africa through WPI’s Project Center in Namibia. Cleaner coal Liz Stewart, Catie Casey, Kate Hudon and Erdem Sasmaz researched the possibility of creating a nano-structured material for capturing mercury, arsenic and selenium from the gases of coal combustion.

Ask any Worcesterite and they will agree – stART on the Street, a beloved festival of arts (both visual and performing), truly shines a light on what those in the Worcester community have to offer. Since stART on the Street’s inception in 2002, the signature event has entertained the community for nearly a decade with fall, spring and holiday festivals. The fall stART has and will continue to take place on Park Avenue; however, the more mobile spring festival will be experiencing its third location change as this year’s celebration will take place in Worcester’s historical Canal District.

Once the home to lucrative businesses that would help develop the city, the Canal District will allow the spring edition of stART on the Street to utilize multiple parking lots and side streets providing a more urban feel to the typical singular street version. “We were looking at up-and-coming areas in the city with demographics we hadn’t hit yet; North Main Street is really a stone’s throw away from Park Ave. Also, the Canal District has some new street scaping and is really funky… There are also some great, diverse businesses on the street,” says founder Tina Zlody. Included in those unique businesses is The Lucky Dog Music Hall, a local performing venue that will be opening its doors to all attending stART on the Street. Erick Godin, manager of the establishment, will be performing with his ’80s cover band, Flock of Assholes, both inside but also acoustically on an outdoor stage. Godin will not only be welcoming visitors of the event but will also allure them to attend future performances as well. “I’m handing out thousands of June/July calendars and tons of free passes to an upcoming Flock show. I want people

to not just be here Sunday, June 3, but also to make them a fan of Lucky Dog,” explains Godin. In addition to this ear entertainment, those stopping by Lucky Dog will be able to feast their eyes on visual art as several artists will be featuring pieces inside. Not only is the location a new facet of the event, but this year’s stART on the Street will bring the flash and fancy with a car show. In past years, the volunteers who organize the event have experimented with adding different elements to make each affair special, and this year cars will make their debut. According to marketing and media coordinator Nikki Erskine, auto-body work is an art form — “In speaking with various folks who do work on cars, we saw that there’s a creative energy that goes into restoring or customizing a vehicle.” Locals with a knack and a passion for reviving old cars will be bringing their creations to the streets where others can marvel and maybe reminisce. “For me, I think the question I ask myself when I look at a creation is whether it makes me smile, think, or otherwise feel something. For a lot of folks, myself included, certain cars do that.

Maybe it’s nostalgia, or Americana, or sparkly paint, a carefully executed welding job and a top that folds down that makes you think, ‘Yeah, I’d drive this,’” playfully states Erskine. In addition to the heavy art of automobiles, there will be numerous other artist forms as well. Troy B. Thompson of the No Evil Project will be returning after attending last year’s fall stART on the Street with the organization’s first public photo shoot. The social art project, which has people pose as the three wise monkeys – See No Evil, Hear No Evil, and Speak No Evil – and then choose three labels to represent themselves, originated as Thompson struggled with what he saw around him. “It bothered me that there seemed to be an increasing emphasis on ‘Us vs. Them’ from race to religion to politics to sexuality to socioeconomics to sports teams and what kind of cell phone you use,” he says. Thompson hopes to open people to discussing these topics as they view the project’s pieces. Joining Thompson and sharing an interest in photography is Doug Hockman. Also an artist that only

{ arts }

became involved with stART on the Street last year, Hockman was pleased with his experience. “There is a great art community in Worcester and stART gives you the opportunity to connect and sell with them,” he says. Molly McGrath of the thrift store Grime Clothing located at 100 Grove St. will be sharing handmade crafts. Grime, home of new or used clothing and handmade items, features local artists as McGrath enjoys being able to speak about the pieces face-to-face with the artists. She will be featuring her handmade items this year at the event for the first time after admiring stART on the Street for the past two years. In a different craft, Seed to Stem specializes in unusual container gardens and plant arrangements. The company, founded by Virginia Orlando and co-creator Candace Atchue in January 2011, specializes in unusual container gardens and plant arrangements. The stART on the Street participants are in the midst of preparing for Seed to Stem’s grand opening of its retail store, taking place June 16. Those attending stART on the Street will get a sneak peak at all the store will have to offer.

From photography to music to clothing to nature, stART on the Street is for the artist in everyone and the idea is simple for all – to enjoy themselves. “Our message has always been to come celebrate your city, buy some art, discover a new band, eat, dance, meet new people, hang with old friends and have a great time,” Zlody communicates. To celebrate art, music and the city of Worcester, be sure to attend the spring edition of stART on the Street on June 3 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., taking place for the first time in Worcester’s Canal District (on Green Street between Temple and Madison).

Joy Rachelle’s Ukulele Michael Walsh

“I’m kind of a gypsy,” explains Joy Rachelle.

Gypsies so often get a bad rap in pop culture. They are thought of as uneducated swindlers who live a secretive yet seductive lifestyle. One might wager, however, that if more people were privileged enough to hear the pleasant music created by Joy Rachelle Murrieta, those stereotypes would fall out of favor faster than you can say “uke.” Joy Rachelle, as she goes by on stage, was born on Cape Cod. She graduated from Minnesota’s Crown College with a degree in music and vocal performance

before returning to the area to be near family. She now performs regularly as a part of the indie folk band, Bright, the Morning at local establishments ranging from Worcester to Cambridge and Boston. The ukulele is Murrieta’s instrument of choice and it is with this unique instrument that she will be running a workshop from 1:30 to 3 p.m. on June 2 at Union Music in Worcester. She picked it up innocently enough, “I was working at Guitar Center out in Colorado and bought one,” explains Murrieta. “I’m not the world’s biggest person, I’m very small. So this was kind of more my size.” She has become an accomplished player and teaches private music lessons at Union Music. The workshop idea actually started a few years ago under the

guidance of Carl Kemp, who owns Union Music. This will be the fourth installment of Union’s ukulele workshop and the first with Joy Rachelle. She previously put on a ukulele feature in April and the two thought further attention should be paid to this wonderful little instrument. Kemp has some straightforward goals for the event; he hopes participants will see how fun music-making on the ukulele can be. Murrieta says she always has more fun with group classes. “You can only fit in so many kids doing private lessons; you have more opportunity to teach more people with a group class,” she explains. “The ukulele is an up-and-coming instrument and is experiencing a rebirth. Carl wants to offer something in response to that,” comments Murrieta. “I try to

focus a lot on music theory and get my students to apply that to songs.” Murrieta is able to blend her two true passions of music and working with children through her own creation, “Main I.D.E.A.” She is the executive director of the free youth and arts summer daycamp, which she and a group of friends founded last year. You can tell her sheer excitement by how she lights up when she speaks on the subject. “It’s very exciting, I love giving back and working with kids in the area.” Main I.D.E.A. hopes to bring free exposure of all art forms to the Main South area. In a location with a lot of underprivileged youths and low budgets for the arts, Murrieta’s program takes kids grades 3 through 5 for a weeklong program with a showcase finale Friday night. This year’s program will run the week of August 6 with the big performance on that Friday. She has been fortunate to have partnered with local businesses like Union Music, Friendly House and Clark University. Joy Rachelle, the teacher, and Joy Rachelle, the musician, blend into a whirlwind of musical talent and energy when she performs original songs like “The Ways We Cope” and “Guard Down.” After the teacher in her finishes up the workshop at Union, Joy Rachelle, the performer, will travel north to Fitchburg where Bright, The Morning will be playing at the Fitchburg Artistree. The road ahead for Murrieta is as bright as one of her ukulele solos. She still hopes to continue exploring her two passions and eventually create a sort of afterschool rock-band program for area kids this fall. “Kids will sign up to be in a band and learn some covers before creating original songs and we’ll record them at the end,” beamed Murrieta. Though she will downplay what is undoubtedly ahead, it is clear to the rest of us that as the artist croons in her favorite original; “I can feel it coming. A distant, rising wave that will soon reach me,” and “my, oh my, won’t it be something.” For more information or to sign up for the workshop held at Union Music, 142 Southbridge St., Worcester, please contact Carl Kemp at 508-753-3702 or carl@ unionmusic.com.

Art exhibit examines genocide at DZian Gallery Taylor Nunez

Can genocide really be prevented? With more than 262 million people murdered as the result of genocide in the 20th century, it is difficult to imagine a world where complete peace can exist. Project eXodus, founded by Worcester periodontist Dr. Elliot Salloway and German artist Manuel Schroeder, will present this question to the Worcester community through an art exhibition at Dzian Gallery.

Salloway, once a faculty member of the Harvard School of Dental Medicine, was trained at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts School and the Worcester Art Museum, and continually uses photography to supplement his teaching. A worldly photographer, who has shot in Cuba and Paris as well as the United States’ Grand Canyon during rafting trips, Salloway met Schroeder while traveling in Europe and became increasingly interested in Schroeder’s art. Schroeder began his professional career in photography, painting and music in 1983. He is not only renowned as an artist that incorporates urban life into pieces, but also the founder and chief curator of Raumordnung, an international working art association. Though Salloway has been featured in many prestigious galleries (Miami Historical Museum, Worcester City Arts, Boston City Arts, New Gallery in Boston, to name but a few), this is the first time Salloway will be featured at the Dzian Gallery despite having a history with Dzian Gallery owner David Papazian. “David is a long-time patient of mine. We always enjoyed talking about art and have a mutual respect for each other,” says Salloway. Though the two often spoke about putting a show together, it wasn’t until Project eXodus was created and needed a gallery for its inaugural event that it came to be. While anyone can benefit from the exhibit—we all need to be aware of crimes against humanity, he says—Salloway particularly wants a younger audience to receive the message. “We especially want to bring awareness of these issues to young people. While genocide continues to take place today, the Holocaust happened many years ago and young people may need to be reminded of what can happen,” Salloway explains. At the exhibit, pieces by both Salloway and Schroeder will be used as tools to remind viewers that human beings are capable of both good and evil. The exhibit will not only feature works from Salloway and Schroeder, but local students as well. Friends of Salloway, Amy Fagen of New Boston in western MA. and Andrew McIntyre of Boston, both contributed a painting to the show. All proceeds from sales will go to benefit Clark University’s Strassler Center, home to the only doctoral program of Holocaust History and Genocide Studies in the world. Salloway hopes that the exhibit will not only make the community aware of the program but that perhaps enrollment will increase with further exposure. Genocide has made its mark in history, but Salloway believes exhibits like “Can Genocide Be Prevented? The Two Sides of Human Nature” is the beginning of the end. “Awareness of genocide and other crimes against humanity is the first step toward preventing such crimes,” states Salloway. To learn more about genocide prevention and to be moved by pieces by Salloway, Schroeder and others, do not miss “Can Genocide Be Prevented? Two Sides of Human Nature” at the Dzian Gallery on 65 Water St. from June 5-July 3. For more information on Project eXodus, visit exodusinfo.org. M AY 3 1 , 2 0 1 2 • W O R C E S T E R M A G . C O M

The 39 Steps opens June 1 was Tony-award nominated as Best Play in 2008.

Ben Ryland

The Worcester County Light Opera Company’s board president Lisa Mielnicki is very excited about its production of “The 39 Steps,” which runs three weekends beginning on Friday, June 1, at its Grand View Avenue playhouse. In its 75th year, the opera company offered very successful productions of “Assassins” and “Oliver” this season, and now it’s tackling a very ambitious recent Broadway hit, which

Based on the novel by John Buchan, considered by many as the first spy novel, the stage version has been adapted by Patrick Barlow. John Buchan’s grand daughter Deborah Buchan has stated, “The more people who want to put it on and perform what was possibly the first spy thriller, the more delighted [her grandfather] would be.” The play is based on the original novel and not the classic Hitchcock film; but there is a twist when presented on stage. With a cast of four, the ensemble portrays more than 100 characters with quick changes providing the ensuing stage business while upholding the serious plot using clever and funny situations organically. It could be explained as a “straight” musical that is choreographed but not sung according to director Todd Yard. On a trip to New York, he saw the production and knew he wanted to direct it at the Worcester County Light Opera

Company. Yard, who has appeared in several shows, has returned to directing, throwing his hat back in the ring. “The story has no hidden messages; instead it celebrates a thriller with its own theatricality, an entertaining story [with] laughs,” Yard believes. This version’s acting edition is full of stage directions for the producing groups from the original creators. You will see a bi-plane and train chase in a most unusual set design by Mark Goodney, enhanced by special effects and dramatic underscoring. In the play, Londoner Richard Hannay attends a theatrical production of “Mr. Memory,” a performer with a photographic memory, when a fight breaks out and shots are fired. He finds himself with a frightened Annabella Schmitt (spy) and takes her back to his apartment where she claims to have uncovered a plot to steal British military secrets. In the morning he discovers her dead body, and fearing he will be arrested for murder, flees on the train to Scotland where he meets a

{ theater }

mysterious woman, Pamela, who alerts the police to his location. Hannay realizes that he is indeed being pursued, so he follows the spy’s story to find out the truth about her murder. Confronting the man she named as head of the gang, he is shot and left for dead. Fortunately he was saved by a prayer book in his pocket. As he is taken away by fake policemen, once again he is confronted by Pamela, who now believes his story and tries to help him sort who is the leader of the conspirators. “The 39 Steps” is a hilarious fastpaced homage to the genre’s style with many twists and turns that will keep the audience entranced until the climax and the unveiling of the villain. Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8p.m. with Sunday matinees at 2p.m., June 1 until June 17 at its theater located at 21 Grand View Ave. Tickets are available at 508-753-4383 or online at wcloc.org. $18 for adults with a senior discount for Sunday matinees.

Mountain Man: Putting their hardcore name on the line

Matt Roberts

Once upon a time the musician’s essential dream – above throngs of fans and groupies, hotels, and, of course, their art – was “to get signed.” To ink the record company contract that would provide access to the necessary yet expensive machinery of production, distribution, promotion, and touring.

“These days, most people can do the same services that a label can,” says Patrick Murphy of Mountain Man. “But being part of a label is like a family and like Victory Records in the ‘90s, [No Sleep Records] has a core group of followers who listen to every record the label puts out.” Mountain Man formed in the summer of 2009 when members of Last Lights and I Rise gathered with the initial intention of simply recording some tunes written by singer Josh Smith. “Mountain Man definitely started as a side project, with no intentions of ever doing anything besides

The Internet, it was then said, changed all that, allowing universal and (on some level) equal access to this once coveted distribution network. Bands even willingly dropped their labels, opting instead to release their own music via the Internet’s slew of music channels. Still, record companies have held on, and bands still seek to sign with them. Worcester-based hardcore band, Mountain Man, is now one, with the announcement of their deal with No Sleep Records, an independent label based out of Huntington Beach, CA.

recording a demo and playing random house parties,” says Murphy. Soon after, however, it dawned on the band members that the work had “oceans of potential” and the band “started writing more real songs, doing real tours and getting recognition from people we never in a million years expected.” Record labels agreed, and the band was signed – three times: first to Mightier than Sword Records, who released their 10” “One”; then, by Think Fast! Records, who signed them in 2010 and released the band’s first full-length “Grief”; and finally, by No Sleep Records.

“We have all been in serious signed bands before,” says Murphy. “So the business side wasn’t anything new to us.” “No Sleep really has so much to offer, and that’s why we signed with them,” says Murphy. “They have the budget and distribution to help us to expand to a new audience that may not have been opened to us before.” “We have some pretty weird ideas (the band’s debut record, the brutal and dark “Grief,” is a concept album that “channels the five stages of grief,” according to Murphy) and we never have to twist their arms for them to let us do it,” he says. “No Sleep has given us 100% creative control of the band. Chris (Hansen, founder of No Sleep) was a fan of the band before we even began [contract negotiations], so he was already on board with what the band was about,” he says. In fact, Hansen says on the No Sleep website that he is “stoked to be working with Mountain Man and to add them to the family. I’ve been a fan of Mountain Man with their past releases on Think Fast and MTS and could not be happier.” So what’s next, now that the band has signed the golden ticket and has the backing of likeminded suits – who are also fans – and who have access to industry gears and controls? “We have a few things up our sleeves at the moment that we can’t really talk about right now, but we have a new EP coming out this summer on No Sleep Records and are doing a little touring to support it,” says Murphy. “After this summer, we’ll be writing a new full length and hopefully recording [it] in the winter.” Stay tuned to Mountain Man’s Myspace profile, or nosleeprecs.com for dates for tour stops and upcoming releases.

{ music } Q & A with Christopher Shepard, artistic director of the Worcester Chorus

In anticipation of the Worcester Chorus’ 2011-12 season-ending concert centered on Carl Orff’s famous “Carmina Burana” on Sunday, June 3, artistic director Christopher Shepard graciously answered some questions about the musical and the interpretive challenges involved in putting together this program. Below is a transcript of our conversation. Jonathan Blumhofer: Does “Carmina Burana” have special significance for you and the Worcester Chorus?

to match the instruments, the work really requires a buoyancy that is difficult to maintain.

JB: How were the other pieces on the program (Elgar, Górecki, Bernstein) chosen?

CS: Because of its use of percussion, the Bernstein seemed

a natural pairing with the Orff. The Elgar and Górecki, on the other hand, act almost like “palette cleansers.” After so much driving, rhythmic musical figures in the Orff and Bernstein, the ethereal Górecki and sublime Elgar make a nice change of pace.

“Carmina Burana” doesn’t necessarily have special significance for us, I think it’s safe to say that this work is beloved by nearly every choral singer. No matter how often I’ve conducted it, choirs always respond with such great joy and energy to the work.

challenges (technical and/or interpretive) that you and the chorus face when it comes to performing “Carmina Burana”?

CS: The great joy of this program is its wide appeal—

the visceral drive and excitement of these works is immediately palpable for listeners of all ages. The physicality of this concert’s repertoire is a perfect counterpoint to the intellectual appeal of the “B Minor Mass.”

CS: “Carmina Burana” is

deceptive because Orff’s harmonic language is very straightforward, the work is fairly easy to read, which can lull a choir into a false sense of security. But the complex text takes a great deal of time to become second nature, and the high vocal ranges, as well as the fact that much of the work is sung in quite a full voice, means that the singers need a great deal of vocal stamina in performance. Although it is tempting to sing almost “percussively”

Cracking open an old chestnut Snow White and The Huntsman Grade B + David Wildman

G

enerally when Hollywood coalesces around a trend it’s because a concept has done fairly well that is easy or cheap to reproduce, and is seen as tried and true enough to minimize risks of originality. This is why we get an entire summer of remade 60’s and 70’s TV shows, or clusters of biopics. This year the trend is hoary old fairy tales dressed in impressive CGI and served to an adult audience (Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, Jack the Beanstalk and so on). It was probably Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” and the lure of public domain plots that started this latest round of copycats, and so “Snow White and the Huntsman,” produced by the same crew and directed by a first-timer, seemed destined to be a Xerox of a Xerox. And yet here it is in the primo early summer slot, which means the big money people knew it was good, but not only that, this offering may actually prove to be a trend setter itself. When a film has me thinking that this is the sort of impact the early fairy tales might have had on their original audiences, they must be doing something right. The lush dreamlike sweep of the visuals and the canny depiction of the muddy, gritty world of the commoners contrasted with the cold austere elegance of the aristocracy seems to suggest what the imagination of someone at the time might have conjured upon hearing or reading a story like this. Such a fantastical plot, with evil queens, phantom armies, trolls and talking mirrors is what passed for a sci-fi horror blockbuster of its time, with the medium being the mind of the reader or listener. And it’s easy to see how this kind of tale was likely not originally intended for children. First time director Rupert Sanders as well as newbie writer Evan Daugherty and pros John Lee Hancock (“The Blindside”) and Hossein Amini (“Drive”) are intent on knocking the old-time Disney out of this story. Snow White (Kristen Stewart) turns out to be a formidable armed warrior and

leads a Joan of Ark-like purge against the forces of darkness, the seven dwarfs too are downright militant, the bug and bile infested Dark Forest is truly cringeinducing, and nasty queen Ravenna (Charlize Theron) and the horrific ways she goes about maintaining her youth – eating the innards of birds and opening her mouth wide to suck the very life out of children – are deliciously over the top in their wanton cruelty and vileness. You of course know the plot going in, but the smart dialog effectively balances melodrama with humor, and

*5(&,$1)(67,9$/ St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Cathedral 102 Russell St., Worcester • www.spyridoncathedral.org

good performances by Theron and Stewart, as well as titular huntsman Chris Hemsworth (whose wooden and silly Thor was the only strike against the otherwise magnificent “The Avengers”) make it easy to be engaged by the story. Things do get a bit hokey when Snow White starts taming trolls, cranky dwarves and the beasts of the fairy forest, and the tone becomes so light that you almost wouldn’t be surprised if she broke into song. And the queen’s mirror on the wall is downright ridiculous. It looks like a giant golden gong, and has a tendency to turn into molten metal and take human form, kind of like the robot in “Terminator 2.” These are small quibbles however. Stewart has the right kind of presence to pull this off (unlike say Mia Wasikowska in “Alice In Wonderland”). She’s both arresting and innocent but with a backbone, and there is an interesting chemistry between her and the huntsman, as well as her childhood companion Prince William (Sam Claflin). I believe this film will be a decent success, and the only downside is that in its wake we can expect to see many more children’s fables done up “Lord of the Rings”-style, for better or worse.

Mai Tai is sandwiched between some of Worcester’s lesser swanky bars, on the east-facing side of Green Street. Enormous bay windows welcome diners into a large, open seating plan, with over 10 tables situated in the middle of the dining room, comfortable booths pinned to the walls and a long bar stretching the length of the interior. Mai Tai is definitely catering to the Worcester crowd seeking libation, as a fully stocked bar and a dozen or so bottled beers are lit brightly by scores of preposterously large flat-panel TVs. The decor is modern and completely avoids the kitsch Asian inspirations and wall adornments that you might find at other sushi joints around town. Late on a Wednesday night, Taylor and I were sat immediately in a booth and greeted hastily by our waiter, Tommy. We were barely through glancing at the menu when he returned with our drinks and we were ordering a much needed appetizer. Falling back on an old standard, crab rangoons, Taylor and I were expecting standard fare, but we received six fat

STEVEN KING

doughy fried pockets bursting with tangy cream cheese and crab. While I could be criticized for boisterous claims, these were without a doubt the best crab rangoons that I have ever had from any restaurant, crunchy, gooey, and satisfying. Unlike many other sushi restaurants in the city, Mai Tai Sushi & Bar does not serve a full menu of Asian entrees, instead sticking exclusively to what they do well – sushi. Sushi entrees on the menu ranged between $9 and $13 for special rolls, with what they describe as “full dinners for 2” hitting up around $40. Taylor and I ordered a la carte, ordering an Alaskan Maki ($5.50), Potato Maki ($5), and the house specialty Mai Tai Maki ($13). The potato maki was a delicious vegetarian roll with sweet crunchy cucumbers and sweet potato, drizzled in a light eel sauce, which helped balance out the heavier Alaskan maki, which was topped with crunchy onion strings. Both of these were mere preludes to the main course – and

long strip of rolls, delicately prepared with two cuts of yellowtail tuna sitting on top a tight rice wrap with yet more tuna within, laced with a relatively mild spicy mayonnaise. Thankfully, Mai Tai’s rolls are not overwhelmed with mayonnaise, mustards, or cream cheese, and the fish or fresh vegetables are always the prominent feature. Prices at Mai Tai are more than reasonable, as our entirely order barely tipped out over $30. Our service was prompt throughout most of the meal, although we suspect Tommy forgot about us later in the evening, as the restaurant filled up with a later-night bar crowd. While Worcester is inundated with sushi restaurants these days, the clean and crisp interior of the restaurant, coupled with swell service, and high quality sushi, should put Mai Tai Sushi & Bar on any Worcester diners must-eat list.

The Black Diamond Restaurant in Wachusett Mountain Ski Area is expanding, opening a second location in Wachusett Village Inn in Westminster. Laura Hume, Director of Sales for the Inn, said that bringing the Black Diamond to the already existing restaurant space gave it an identity. “Wachusett Mountain owns the Inn, so it made sense to bring it into the space to streamline the menu and the clientele.� The original Black Diamond will continue business during the ski season from December through late March. The new store allows for pub-style menu favorites, like chili and chips and their classic mac and cheese to be served during the off-season in the cozy surroundings and poolside dining of the Wachusett Village Inn. Located on 9 Village Inn Road, Westminster. 978-874-2000. The Worcester Food Truck Festival Elm Park, Worcester. Sometimes the best food comes in the most unexpected places — like from trucks!

Raising a glass to wine everywhere

Too hot to handle Al Vuona

O

n occasion, I like hot, spicy foods. And on those occasions, I usually pay for it with a very bad case of heart burn. That’s why I try to avoid wines that I’ve dubbed “too hot to handle.” What makes a wine hot is the alcohol content. Today many wine producers believe in pushing the envelope by finishing their wines with alcohol levels above what many would term acceptable. The alcohol level in wine, especially reds, has crept up from a respectable 12.5% to more than 15%. Why you ask? Well the reasons vary from winemaker to winemaker. Alcohol is an important component of wine. Without it, all you have is unfermented grape juice. But suffice it to say too much of a good thing can be damning. Some varietals such as Zinfandel are by nature high in alcohol, but the enhancement of alcohol in a wide variety of wines has been questioned lately. For many people the high content of alcohol comes across as a hot or burning sensation in the mouth. What’s more, the high alcohol content can mask much of the fruit in the wine or diminish the flavor of certain foods. If you are going to drink wines that are high in alcohol then it may be best to pair them with heartier dishes. That way the food is able to balance the alcohol in the wine. Of course what it really boils down to is personal preference. If you’re new to wine or dislike wines with high alcohol content then it would be wise to stick with those wines that have alcohol levels in the 12 to 14 percent range. These wines will be food-friendly, and best of all, they won’t be too hot to handle.

Beckie Comeau

STEVEN KING

BECKIE COMEAU, A PRE-KINDERGARTEN TEACHER AT THE GODDARD SCHOOL IN AUBURN, HAS BEEN HONORED WITH GODDARD SYSTEMS, INC.’S (GSI) “TEA CHER OF THE YEAR A WARD,” WHICH WAS ANNOUNCED DURING TEA CHER APPRECIATION WEEK IN MA Y. AT THE TENDER AGE OF 26, THIS LEICESTER RESIDENT IS A RISING STAR IN THE EDUCA TION COMMUNITY. WITH ONLY FIVE YEARS OF TEA CHING EXPERIENCE BEHIND HER, WE SEE A BRIGHT FUTURE FOR HER – AND THE STUDENTS SHE TEACHES.

Have you always taught prekindergarten?

After I graduated college, I moved to South Florida to teach first grade. Then, I moved back to Massachusetts to teach in a small preschool classroom with kids, ages 2 to 5 years old. When I began teaching at The Goddard School, I started working in the prekindergarten classroom, where I’ve been for the past three years.

What is the most exciting aspect of teaching Pre-K? Children at this age

are like little sponges. They love learning new things, and it’s a great way to see their personalities develop. Their creativity and curiosity is mindblowing! I love being able to see them experience something new or master a new skill.

What is the hardest challenge this age bracket presents to you as a teacher?

The hardest challenge in this age bracket is meeting the academic needs of the different learning levels. Another challenge is the fact that many learning disabilities are not diagnosed at this age, which sometimes makes it difficult to decide the exact approach to take in certain situations.

In your mind, what is the most important element when teaching early education?

The most important element to remember when teaching early education is that everybody learns differently and at different paces. Most children at this age learn through play.

To teach this age, it is important to have patience, creativity, an open mind and a caring heart.

Can you tell us about your Lending Library you created? The Lending Library is a program that allows children to borrow books on a weekly basis. It was started after several children asked to take home and borrow books from school. We have a book cart filled with books ranging from leveled readers, chapter books, picture books and board books. All of the books were either donated from families and teachers, or ordered from a free point system by Scholastic Book Club. The book cart goes to one classroom per day on a rotating schedule to accommodate children’s different schedules. Currently, six out of the nine classrooms [are] participating in the Lending Library, ranging from ages 2 through 6. We have due-date slips, reminder slips, a date stamper, and every book has a book card and envelope. The kids get so excited when it’s their Lending Library Day! They love having the responsibility of choosing what they want to read and having the responsibility of returning it to the “Book Returns” bin in their room. With the Lending Library, children are occupied more with books rather than television and video games. It promotes early literacy, responsibility, the love of reading, and more quality family time.

Funniest thing a child has ever said to you? Children at this age have a very good memory! I love to come to work every day knowing the kids will make me laugh. It’s hard to choose the funniest thing a child has ever said to me, but I’ve heard everything from, “My dad has a hairy back” to “My mom snores a lot.”

What are your summer plans this year? The Goddard School is open year round. After graduation, our school starts summer clubhouses with classes focused more on interest topics such as cooking, water play, arts and crafts, and science. Aside from The Goddard School, I will be taking my last graduate class to complete my master’s degree. I also hope to make a few trips to the beach!

What is it about a Goddard education that you embrace the most? Many people think of early childhood education as a daycare. Here at The Goddard School, we plan our daily curriculum to follow the state’s Common Core Standards. We base our assessments according to what the local public schools require for kindergarten entry. I am able to use my educational knowledge and apply it without

having to worry about “meeting the test scores.” I love how we can freely plan our weekly curriculum within the monthly theme. I often get my ideas from the children’s interests and by involving them in the process of what they want to learn.

Do you think you’ll teach other grades, or is Pre-K where your main focus shall remain? I’ve experienced working with both, younger and older elementaryaged children. While they all have their advantages and challenges, I feel that pre-kindergarten is a great place for me.

Four of 8,000 teachers receive this award every year. How does that feel? It was such an honor and a surprise to be chosen as one of the National Teachers of the Year. Out of the six years that The Goddard School has had this award, our school in Auburn has won all six years. To be chosen out of the 200 schools in the Northeast Region is a great accomplishment. I didn’t create the Lending Library to try and win an award. My intensions were to promote early literacy, the love of reading, and quality time with families. Being recognized for hard work is a great feeling.
