insid storie

t’s always struck me as a little odd that the sheriff’s office is a job coveted by politicians. That’s not to say it’s surprising: anyone who’s sheriff has an immediate soapbox (how many people can name Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, but stumble over the name of their own) and an established “tough on crime” background to stamp on fliers as they leap to the next political campaign. Despite these flaws in the system, Worcester County’s new sheriff, Lew Evangelidis, has made some maneuvers up at the West Boylston jail that should leave anyone concerned with the intersection of public policy and public safety optimistic. It’s only been seven months, but Evangelidis has at least started saying some of the right things when it comes to the rehabilitation and recidivism of prisoners. But he’s still a politician, who has started a new job in a highly political atmosphere. He’s brought his own baggage and has had to deal with others’ too. It all makes for an interesting dynamic on Paul X. Tivnan Drive: at a time where the jail needs reforms, everyone’s still talking politics.

ith the help of new management, local architects and construction companies, Shrewsbury’s White City Shopping Center is undergoing some exciting changes that will make the mall For the eighth year in a row the not only more accessible to pedestrians, Princeton Review has named Worcester but more ecofriendly, too. State University “Best in the Northeast,” The White City Shopping Center was the only Massachusetts state school to built in the 1950s and up until 2010, receive the designation.

horseplay

architecturally—and having the buildings move in and out a little bit. It will definitely be more visually pleasing.” Pedestrians are taking top priority when it comes to the renovations. As the shopping center stands now, it is divided into two large sections separated by South Quinsigamond Avenue, a layout that the new owners, Charter Realty & Development Corp., hope to make massive improvements upon with some simple tweaks, including new crosswalks and signals. Construction Coordinators of Needham will be taking on the first round of renovations, which also includes adding planters, benches and better lighting for safety to the outside portion of the space. “In the past, people viewed malls as seas of parking,” says Paul Brandes of Charter Realty & Development Corp. “We’re looking to create a Main Street kind of environment.” According to Scott, several buildings will be completed before Thanksgiving,

with a large portion of the renovations being underway before the holidays. Scott estimates the project, including the extra traffic signals and signage, will take between one and two years to complete (cost estimates are not being released at this time). The shopping center will be open during construction. Mall-goers should not only be excited about the plans to improve the property’s aesthetics and walkability, but about the new businesses already slated to move in. Five Guys Burgers & Fries are moving in, while Jimmy’s Tavern, a local business, will settle into the former Bugaboo Creek. While Brandes plans to sign leases with more new tenants, they are not being disclosed at this time. Scott hopes that the renovations will encourage current shop owners to spruce-up their stores and for restaurants to offer outdoor seating. As far as White City’s carbon footprint is concerned, Scott/Griffin Architects hasn’t left the environment out of the continued on page 6

Inactive voter list a concern Kevin Koczwara

C

ara Lisa Berg Powers sees a troubling sign in this year’s inactive voter report from the Worcester Election Commission. The last time the numbers were run, 45.03 percent of voters in the city were listed as inactive, a concerning amount. “It means that there is something wrong with the process,â€? says Powers, a Worcester resident who is an author and co-director of Press Pass TV, which engages Boston and Worcester teens in journalism and media advocacy. Powers feels the city can and should do more to update the entire process, pointing out that if the current system only has a 55 percent rate, then maybe it’s time to change the system. The practice of determining the active voter list is an annual activity required by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As Josh Meduna of the Worcester Election Commission explains it, every city in the Commonwealth is mailed a survey in January or February, called a street listing. Voters who do not return the street listing form are sent a conďŹ rmation card reminding them that responding is required by law. The Worcester Election Commission then updates their records according to those listings received or not received. Those individuals who have not returned the postage-paid card are then placed on the inactive list. If an individual is found on the inactive list it does not mean they are exempt from voting. It simply means this voter must visit their polling station

and show proof of residency such as a bill, license, ID or pay stub with their current address. If the person has moved, they ďŹ ll out a form conďŹ rming their new address and will then receive a notice in the mail for the next election with their new district and polling station on it. Powers argues that the need for an ID goes against the rights of voters because it creates another step in the process for people and can discourage people from voting. “You’re allowed to vote, but it does make it one step harder to vote, especially if people are being told, ‘you’re on the inactive voter list and you need an ID to vote,’ which is a complete violation of our voting-right laws in this country. That’s been a tried-and-true way to disenfranchise voters for a long time,â€? says Powers. “I don’t think that was anyone’s intention here, but the idea that people would have [to show ID] because they didn’t ďŹ ll out a census then have an extra-step; even though it doesn’t stop them, makes it harder.â€? Meduna says the point of the annual listing is to keep track of people and voters so the state can abide by the federal requirements of keeping an upto-date listing of all the voters in the area. It also allows the state to keep track of nonactive voters who should be removed from the list because they haven’t participated in any sort of registration or voting for two state elections or four years. It’s a hassle that all town and city clerks across the state have to deal with every year. continued on page 7

plans. According to Scott, materials removed from the building will be recycled when possible, and many of the new materials are renewable or contain recycled content. It’s refreshing to see Scott/Griffin and Charter prioritizing ecological responsibility, something that they will continue to pursue in years to come, especially as they take advantage of a certain underappreciated resource: Lake Quinsigamond. “The shopping center, when it was built many years ago, turned its back to the lake,” says Brandes. “A long-term goal for us is to provide waterfront access and utilization, and we’ve begun discussions with Shrewsbury about how to make that happen.” He adds that a project like this

would “require community involvement” and “significant funding.” “The new owners view the lake as a tremendous asset, especially to the White City West portion [of the shopping center],” says Shrewsbury Town Manager Daniel Morgado, who is excited for the renovations and adds that the project has received great public support. Instead of working against these strengths, the updates will highlight the area’s natural beauty, potentially creating even greater support for further environmental initiatives. The White City Shopping Center renovations will hopefully demonstrate that consumer and environmental interests are often one in the same.

David LeBoeuf, executive director of the local nonpartisan Initiative for Engaged Citizenship says the way the state goes about fulďŹ lling this requirement comes at the expense of voters. “It’s a really terrible state law that causes this,â€? he says, because it ties voter status to municipal street listings rather than voting history. The ďŹ rst two street listing forms don’t come with postagepaid envelopes and aren’t translated. (He does add that the city’s separate voting registration notiďŹ cation does come prestamped and in other languages). He also points out that because of this, Worcester’s situation isn’t unique when compared to other cities and towns throughout Massachusetts, especially ones with a high renter population. The Initiative for Engaged Citizenship has focused on registering voters, but foresees groups working to change the way the state mandates how municipalities collects voter information. One alternative, he suggests, would be to establish a universal registration system that ties voting status to the voter rather than an address. There are many ways to stay off of the inactive voter list other than voting, though. Anyone who signs any nomination or petition papers, changes an address or party afďŹ liation or votes in any election will automatically restore their voting activity. These options, says Meduna, helps shrink the number of inactive voters by the day.

proponents and opponents of the lowest residential tax rate are praising City Manager Mike O’Brien, Mayor Joe O’Brien and the council for showing wisdom and foresight in the allocation of the city’s $5.37 million windfall (a combination of additional local aid from the state and free cash generated by the city). While 70 percent of the surplus will be saved in reserve accounts, $150,000 will be used to add three project manager positions to the Economic Development Division. Soon the shorthanded crew in that ofďŹ ce will have a better chance to compete with other cities and towns in approaching and persuading business and industry (and jobs) to come to Worcester.

BUT WILL THE POLITICIANS AVOID THE BEER GARDEN?:

Centro Las Americas’ Latin American Festival outside City Hall on Saturday, August 20, will be a hotbed of political activity. Besides the lively music, dance and tasty ethnic food, there will also be politicians galore. City-council and school-committee incumbents and challengers will be courting the Latino vote, which is expected to be higher than usual this fall. Popular Latino candidates Sarai Rivera (running for District 4 councilor) and Hilda Ramirez (running for school committee), Mayor Joe O’Brien and the inuential group, Neighbor to Neighbor, among others, are expected to educate, motivate and deliver to the polls a substantial percent of registered Latino voters.

HOPING SHARP CLOTHES LEAD TO SHARP MINDS: It will be navy-

blue shirts and khaki pants for the students at Worcester’s Chandler Magnet School this year. Hopefully the school’s voluntary uniform policy approved by parents and the School Committee (except apparel rebel Tracy Novick) will reduce peer pressure, encourage school pride, and improve test scores, attendance and discipline. In any case, some parents say they’d like to see a dress code enforced for Worcester public-school teachers so those who wear sloppy or provocative clothes instead will look as sharp as the Chandler Magnet students.

TWO POUNDS OF HADDOCK AND MOBY DICK: The Shaw’s Supermarket in the Webster Square Plaza (across the street from Gates Lane School) is too large for its volume of sales. So market ofďŹ cials have removed some shelving and shortened all of the aisles. The store now has so much clean and empty space that it could be used to house a small branch of the Worcester Public Library. When the main library downtown was closed for renovations several years ago, the temporary branch on Fremont Street (now the Fremont Lofts) was packed with children, teens and adults from that area of the city. A Shaw’s ofďŹ cial loved the idea. MAGIC MARKERS WEREN’T INVENTED TO CONCEAL THE TRUTH: As seen in the Washington, D.C., and Atlanta public schools, high-stakes testing of students is leading to cheating by unscrupulous administrators and teachers. Here in Massachusetts, state education ofďŹ cials threw out the 2010 MCAS scores of Worcester’s Goddard School because of “tampering.â€? But the public still has little idea what the testing irregularities were because MCAS ofďŹ cials have heavily redacted (blackened out) their explanatory e-mails and reports. It was Buddha who said, “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth.â€? GIVING VOICE AND POWER TO THE PEOPLE: Several local groups have

partnered to form the nonpartisan and nonproďŹ t Initiative for Engaged Citizenship. Among others, they hope to promote civics education, encourage and empower Worcester residents to new levels of involvement in the community, and increase interest and participation in the municipal elections. With 45 percent of Worcester’s registered voters now on the “inactiveâ€? list, the efforts of the nonproďŹ t and its executive director, David LeBoeuf, should be welcomed by candidates and the general public.

IT’S NOT THE CLANCY SEAT, IT’S THE PEOPLE’S SEAT: With District 3 City Councilor Paul Clancy retiring after serving for 24 years, attorney and part-time lawenforcement ofďŹ cer Rick Peters is one of four candidates for that seat. Like Clancy, he’s committed to the lowest residential tax rate. Peters, who once ran unsuccessfully as a Republican candidate for Massachusetts state senate, has the backing of Republican powerhouse and Worcester County sheriff, Lew Evangelides.

Report

City Council wants drivers to see red Gary Rosen

D

uring my last two city-council campaigns, I had a small organization and a paltry war chest. But I compensated for those limitations by personally holding my bright red-and-white campaign sign at various intersections throughout the city. While tens of thousands of motorists saw how much I wanted the job, I observed their driving skills and witnessed many of them communicating through profanity and the finger. So my knowledge of how well Worcester motorists observe the traffic laws rivals that of our police and panhandlers. It’s a fact that too many drivers ignore yellow lights and run red lights. That’s especially true where Park Avenue ends at Gold Star Boulevard. Even when the light there has been red for several seconds, cars drive right through it. With the state legislature’s blessing, our city council hopes to do what has been done elsewhere with varying success – install traffic-enforcement cameras at busy and dangerous intersections. After warning signs and red-light cameras are in place, the council reasons that these intersections will become safer because most drivers will not run the red light. If they do, they will receive a ticket/fine in the mail. Or will they? As it stands now, when a cop nabs a motorist for running a red light, he rightfully issues the ticket to the driver. It doesn’t matter who owns the vehicle. The driver is the guilty party. However, after a traffic-enforcement camera records the license-plate number of a vehicle that runs a red light, the ticket is mailed to the vehicle’s owner. But

the owner might not have been the driver and guilty party. Often vehicles are shared and driven by several members of a household, employees of a business, or are even rental cars. The fine should never go to a person who was not the driver of the car. That’s why some of the more intrusive systems also take a photograph of the driver. Studies generally show that red-light cameras are effective in decreasing reckless driving and improving the overall safety of intersections. But success has been marred by unclear photos, wrongful citations, and tickets being thrown out by the courts. And a significant increase in rear-end collisions often occurs due to drivers jamming on their brakes to stop in time. Some people have been so frustrated with red-light cameras that they have applied a special spray to their license plate. It’s invisible to the naked eye, will not wash off and reflects the flash back to the camera resulting in an overexposed and unreadable picture. But you can be sure that our city councilors will ban the sale or use of any product that obstructs the recognition of a license plate by an electronic device. Many Worcester residents say they already pay enough in fines, fees and taxes. They want the manager and council to forget this revenue-generating scheme and instead adjust the yellow-light time to an appropriate length for an intersection. It won’t take special legislation and that action alone has greatly reduced the number of red-light violations in other cities. In any case, the message to all of us is to slow down, follow the traffic laws and avoid being ticketed by man or machine.

At the end of April of this year, first-term Worcester County Sheriff Lew Evangelidis celebrated his 100th day in office with a release touting his accomplishments in a time span ofTicking less than four months. off a list of Evangelidis’ reforms at the House of Correction in West

Boylston, such as “remov[ing] politics from the department,” changing hiring standards, emphasizing community-service work and drug-prevention programs in schools, the release ends with Evangelidis saying, “I am grateful to have been given this extraordinary opportunity. I look forward to getting up and going to work every day and doing what I can to make our community safer.” That quote could be inserted into any one of Evangelidis’ aspects of his professional career, and it would fit right in. Anyone who knows Evangelidis from his four terms as a Republican state representative from Holden, or his previous time as a prosecutor in Dade County, Fla., and Suffolk County, Mass., understands the 50-year-old’s zeal for public service. But overseeing a jail that’s only about 100 inmates short of a 1,251-population cap agreed upon by the U.S. Department of Justice and Worcester House of Corrections (the jail was originally built to house 750 prisoners) and employs 600, has Evangelidis taking a large leap away from his last job. State representatives don’t deliver bad news, but sheriffs do, says Guy Glodis, Worcester’s former sheriff who left office last year to pursue a failed bid for state auditor. Glodis made a similar jump from state senator to sheriff in 2004. “It’s a difficult job. You can’t make everybody happy all the time,” says Glodis. “People are going to hold Lew accountable up there for both the good and bad.” While the state’s county-jail system falls under the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Office of Public Safety, jails still remain political institutions with elected sheriffs holding six-year terms. In the case of the last election where Glodis, a Democrat, departed, and 27-year jail employee Scot Bove eventually lost in a bitter primary to former Massachusetts state police colonel Tom Foley for that party’s nomination, political speculation fuels every motive. That sort of partisan fighting shouldn’t be anything new to a Beacon Hill veteran, but a sheriff’s impact – measured in budget allocations and recidivism numbers – is arguably easier to quantify than a state representative’s, especially one from the minority party representing a suburban district. So for the first six months of Evangelidis’ time as head of the jail, political bickering and hiring and firings have made the headlines. Evangelidis wants to talk about the reforms he’s made over the past six months so he’s more frustrated than anyone that the conversation always seems to come back to politics. Yet with the number of previous admin defectors and hirees with familiar faces from within the Evangelidis campaign, it’s no stretch to see why he’s been bogged down.

{ coverstory } THE MISSION “It’s the crimes that are never

committed by how we judge our success,” Evangelidis offers from behind his desk in the Worcester County House of Corrections, located in one room of a wing off to the side of jail’s entrance just before the metal detectors and barred doors that separate the prison population from the waiting area. “The ultimate goal is for us to not get people in here in the first place.”

sickly woman with bad skin and thinned hair. The program has a two-fold approach: keeping kids off of drugs now will keep the prison population down in the future. “Every [prisoner] will tell you but for drugs and alcohol they wouldn’t be in here,” says the sheriff.

An extension to the program allows sheriff department employees to digitally alter photos of students to show what they would look like after years of drug abuse, but “kids really like it when we do teachers and principals,” he admits. Next year he expects the program, paid for by private

While it’s the right idea, it’s a dubious way for someone in government to think: funding relies on numbers and if someone uses an argument that can’t be quantified, then how does the state know how much money to give? He hopes that other cost-saving measures he’s taken and crime-deterrent programs he’s championed fill that hole. Evangelidis has worked with the Worcester Superior Court to provide videoconferencing for bail hearings and other applicable court proceedings starting this month, which will cut down on the transportation costs of bringing inmates back and forth between the jail and the courthouse. He’s asked state auditor Suzanne Bump for a full review of his department, the results of which are expected before the end of the summer. Evangelidis consolidated the human resources director and chief financial officer positions into the director of administration and finance position, while eliminating community-relations positions and executive assistants, and changing the legal-counsel contract inherited by the Glodis administration – personnel moves which he estimates will save the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office $400,000 per year. In sticking with the mission, though, Evangelidis specifically touts three of his programs that he believes will cut down on recidivism and reduce the number of criminal offenders in the county. Called the Face2Face program, the sheriff’s department uses kids’ high-regard for their appearance to keep them off drugs. Students see “before” and “after” pictures of inmates arrested for drug use and how their faces and bodies have changed for the worse overtime. “Look at this stuff; she wanted to be a model,” Evangelidis says, pointing to a “before” picture of a pretty young blond. Her “after” photo shows a gaunt,

He believes this program will “show teens that drugs do have consequences.â€? In an effort to cut down on petty offenders landing in jail, Evangelidis says he’s revived the Project COPE programs in Worcester, Fitchburg and Webster, which provide drug tests and classes, and keep track of criminal offenders and give them one last opportunity to help themselves before jail becomes the only option. “The idea of throw away the key doesn’t work in criminal justice,â€? says Evangelidis, who adds, “Everybody agrees COPE works,â€? but confusion and miscommunication between the involved agencies in the past kept the number of enrolled offenders low. Evangelidis also takes pride in the inmate Community Service Program, an aspect of the jail that Glodis also trumpeted. Evangelidis says he’s doubled Glodis’ program. He disagreed with the numbers Glodis provided to Worcester Lew Evangelidis on the job, both in the ďŹ eld and within the prison.

Mag that showed the two administration’s programs used a similar number of inmates. The Worcester County Sheriff’s OfďŹ ce has calculated that between January 2011 and June 2011, 196 inmates have spent 311 hours over 43 days in the city of Worcester alone doing service work at Little League ďŹ elds, churches and a bus stop, saving the city and local nonproďŹ ts $61,260. In Worcester County, 38 communities have seen $640,421 worth of service work done by Worcester House of Corrections inmates in that same time frame. Only soon-to-be released prisoners that are tagged as nonviolent, not a sex offender, and not a ight risk are eligible for work-release jobs, which is why only a small fraction of the jail’s 1,150 inmates partake in a program that Evangelidis loves. “It’s the biggest win-win I’ve ever seen in public life in my career,â€? he says, highlighting the fact that communities adore the free labor while inmates foster a sense of pride over work they’ve done.

{ coverstory } revolved around eliminating politics from a jail run by a politician. He promised that his campaign wouldn’t accept contributions from jail staffers or their spouses, refused to promote himself once elected (indeed, Evangelidis immediately removed Glodis’ name from jail equipment and elected to leave his name off of vehicles), and changed hiring and promotional metrics. He says he’s “done everything to eliminate politics” at the jail. But politics haven’t left yet. High profile defections have brought up the question of whether or not new hiring and promotions have been because of aptitude or alignments with previous administrations. Evangelidis spins that his administration has “done

14

more with less,” noting 59 employees have left since December 22, 2010, saving more than $2.5 million in salary costs; 31 of those were “initiated by the employer” while others came as resignations or retirement. The jail now has only eight assistant deputies, down one from Glodis’ time and several from Glodis’ predecessor, Mike Flynn, who lost to Glodis in 2000. “We’re doing a great job with eight assistant deputy supervisors,” Evangelidis argues. “That’s a sufficient amount right now.” Evangelidis says jail employees are sick of feeling like upward movement comes as a result of “politics and not their work ethic.” Those who haven’t adjusted, he says, are free to walk. It hasn’t helped his case that those who have lost their jobs or quit though, were heavy Glodis and Bove backers. Bove left in June after a demotion from assistant deputy superintendent to captain, while former jail human-resources director Jude Cristo and assistant deputy superintendent for community programs George Valery were both fired in January. Cristo donated $1,400

to Glodis’ campaign since 2006, while Valery and his wife, Christine, donated more than $1,500 since 2005 to Glodis. Bove did not want to make any on-the-record comments to Worcester Mag. These actions have met little pushback from the rank and file employees. “The union is optimistic that Sheriff Evangelidis will continue to work hard at implementing the positive change platform that he ran on,” writes Warren Lohnes, Jr. to Worcester Mag. Lohnes is president of the New England Benevolent Police Association Local 550, which represents the jail’s correctional officers. Amongst jail higher-ups and former employees, these moves haven’t been held in the same regard. Evangelidis’ administration has hired 10 new employees, but a former employee, who asked not to be named, points out that many of those hires worked on Evangelidis’ campaign. Notably campaign manager David Tuttle, who has taken on the job of program and management analyst, described as a “temporary” two-year, $90,000 salary job. After terminating a bloated outside counsel contract with former Glodis ally Jeffrey Turco, Evangelidis hired former Worcester Assistant City Solicitor Andrew Abdella as inhouse lawyer, an Evangelidis campaign volunteer.

{ coverstory } patronage,” writes Lohnes.

But Glodis understands Evangelidis’ motives. After all, shouldn’t a sheriff put people on their leadership team that they trust? “I think the sheriff should have the right to put together his own management team. If he can’t do that, then don’t let him be evaluated on the performance of the jail,” says Glodis, who adds that he came under criticism for similarly surrounding himself with administrators who he knew. “If you’re running a tight ship, it’s hard to make friends.” Evangelidis says system-wide changes in the job-application process have weeded out potential patronage hires. Advertising openings in the newspaper and online may change the perception that one could only get a job at the jail if they knew someone there. Potential hires also have to undergo a psychiatric evaluation and take a written test. Credentials of applicants have also risen: no one with less than a minimum of an associate’s degree or two years of military service will be considered. In the wake of the recent state probation department hiring scandal, jail administration say they won’t accept letters of recommendation on behalf of an applicant from elected officials. Evangelidis has changed the promotional method as well, asking for recommendations for future captains and lieutenants from his deputies, eschewing an old system that relied on score sheets. Former employees have a different opinion, saying this move increases the chance for political gamesmanship, as deputies now only need to pick and choose whom they like for promotions. The sheriff argues that his changes have made promotions merit-based; he says he’s promoted one person to deputy so far, and that person had 24 years of experience. He has also pledged not to deputize anyone who hasn’t been through a police or correctional academy. “I believe that he would admit that one of his more daunting challenges is to positively impact staff morale by countering decades of rampant political

At Nichols, it’s never business as usual, because our professors know that business has never been more unusual, unpredictable and far reaching.

“The ultimate goal for us is to not get people in here in the first place,” Evangelidis preaches. “If I can run a more efficient jail then I don’t have to focus on jobs and patronage,” he adds. He knows that 85 to 90 percent of the facility’s inmates are drug addicts, and that recently released prisoners’ narrow window of never returning to jail heavily relies on whether or not they seek out drugs immediately after their release. He’s aware that the morale of jail staff directly ties into employee and inmate safety. He knows that giving inmates the satisfaction of doing work via community service improves their self-worth when they’re released from jail. He also understands that a new sheriff will suffer allegations of patronage or favoritism, and that changing long-standing policies will be met with criticism. Sadly, Evangelidis has inherited a jail where overcrowding and questions of inmate safety led to a 2008 report by the civil-rights division of the federal Department of Justice that found certain Worcester County House of Corrections conditions and practices “violate the constitutional rights of persons confined there.” If there were ever a time where a sheriff would want his reforms to make as much noise as jail politics, then this would be it.

Nobody knows what’s next. But Nichols grads know they’ll be ready for it.

Late bloomer Gil Correia Josh Lyford

The Gil Correia Band is a blues experience unlike any other. Correia himself describes the band’s sound as a combination of “raw blues and west-coast swing,” and says that his music is inspired by a life filled with, “pain, misery and sometimes joy.”

Members include Dave Baker on drums, Scott Cormier on bass and Gil Correia on vocals and guitar. The sound itself is unique in that it is based mostly on the virtue of Correia’s ability to play

music he truly knows how to create. He says that this style of music is the “only sound I know how to make.” His self-described sound is a “raw sound that’s all about the tone, not how fast or how many notes you can hit.” Correia was late to discover his sound, as his journey to becoming an accomplished blues musician didn’t seriously begin until he was 42 (he’s a rockin’ 55 now). According to his bio on

ReverbNation, Correia states that although he always wanted to be a musician, he didn’t have his act together early in life. “Later in my life, in my 40s, I said ‘I’m going to learn how to play the guitar. Seriously learn how to play it and make music and make a living a doing that.’ And I

did.” Correia was mentored by New England-based blues master, Ricky “King” Russell and credits Russell’s expert skills and guidance for putting him where he is today. The Gil Correia Band is signed to MediaBoss Entertainment out of Framingham, and the label has produced the band’s first seven-song EP titled “Tattoos and Blues,” which was released at the end of June this year. Jim Foster of MediaBoss produced this album, and Correia credits Foster for the success of his first release. “This being my first album I’ve ever recorded, [Foster] made it very easy for me to express my artistic emotions, and captured it the way it was meant to be. The entire staff at MediaBoss made us feel right at home.” He adds that the recording process “was a positive experience.” While Correia expresses that Massachusetts can be a tough area for someone to break into the blues scene, he also points out that, “with a little determination you can make it happen.” Correia has a positive attitude in general about his future plans as a musician. He appreciates the ability to play shows for new people and introduce his sound to a new audience whenever possible. A typical show is one of high energy that encourages dancing and offers a great array of songs. Correia admits that he loves to “play hard-driving blues, traditional blues, and we love the ‘Swang Thang.’” Correia has a deep musical history. He has been on stage with the strat master Ronnie Earl and harp master Jerry Portnoy, and has backed up queen of the blues Toni Lynn Washington, as well as Sugar Ray and Kid Bangham, among others. Correia remembers a particularly humbling moment when Ronnie Earl invited him onstage at Showcase Live in Foxboro. The evening had particular significance. After all, Earl is someone that Correia has looked up to for many years. He says that, “To be onstage with him [Earl] was such a thrill and honor. He is truly a good soul.” In addition, Correia has been a mainstay at The Onset Blues Festival for many years, not only as the MC, but also as a fan favorite. With plans to shoot a new video, record, and do a national and European tour, the band has large aspirations, a great attitude and the chops to back it all up. It seems obvious that the Gil Correia Band is set to rock the blues scene. Correia acknowledges that he is “Truly blessed to be able to express myself through music and perform for fans and music lovers. It is a privilege.” Be sure to check out the Gil Correia Band at Firefly’s Barbecue on August 19 in Marlborough. You can also find the band online at Reverbnation.com/ TheGilCorreiaBand.

Ancestral Artistry Lineal Perspectives of the Abstract

Three generations of artists present their unique take of architectural elements in the exhibit Prints, Textiles, and Photographs: Architectural Abstractions Across Three Generations at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s (WPI) Gordon Library.

Sponsored by the WPI College of Arts and Sciences, this show highlights the works of three family members, Armin Landeck, his daughter Olga Rothschild, and her son, Michael Heming: three generations of work that explores a myriad of structures, depicted in various mediums. Each artist approached the abstract found in architectural settings in their own distinctive style, yet a startling similarity remains in their works, perhaps a few pieces gleaned from the unconscious. “I am fascinated by the idea of three generations of artists looking at the same subject matter, architecture, and using their individual media—printmaking, rug hooking, and photography—to highlight architectural elements like light and shape,� says Lora Brueck, curator of the library gallery. “And even though Landeck’s prints were done in the 1930s to the 1970s, they remain contemporary because of their classic lines.� Landek trained as an architect but chose instead to immerse himself in the craft of intaglio, making engravings, prints and etchings that focused on the surfaces of buildings, the textures and patterns found in the shifting light of day. In “Manhattan Canyon,� Landeck has taken an aerial view to depict the street scene below; the elements of the teeming buildings appearing to swallow the boulevard whole, as the cascading facades slowly fade into a distant darkness. The composition, like most of his work, is in black and

white and recalls the work of Charles Sheeler, himself a photographer as well as a painter who specialized in urban imagery. “Staircase,â€? a drypoint done in 1942, recalls the eerie quality of Hopper’s “Night Shadows,â€? where a lonely ďŹ gure is seen from a high vantage point in a ďŹ lm noire atmospheric nocturne. Landeck portrays his daughter Olga at the base of a gloomy stairwell, the only light source being one lone hallway light that throws ominous shadows throughout. A landing above provides a hint of Escher and Gorey to the scene. Landeck’s work is meticulous and precise, and his attention to detail provides glimpses into the city scenes of yesteryear. “In a sense this exhibit is a memorial to my father,â€? says Olga Rothschild. “The show was conceived by my son, Michael, who saw the similarities in the graphic work of my father’s etchings, along with my hooked rugs and Michael’s own photographs.â€? Rothschild initially worked in woodcuts but made the transition to hooking rugs. “Somehow, it is a natural follow-up to that. The hooked stitches are very similar to the mark the chisel makes in the wood,â€? she explains. “The hook which I use is very similar in looks and feeling to the tool which my father used in printmaking—the graver—perhaps a genetic disposition on my part.â€? The piece, “Steps for Lucy,â€? echoes her father’s love of geometric design and architecture. Here, Rothschild has created a seemingly three-dimensional aspect to her composition of stairs, and one can easily envision ascending the steps. Using discarded, recycled wool fabric, she cuts them into long strips about a quarter-inch wide and colors them with natural dyes. “I use a lot of plaids and tweeds to obtain my color blends,â€? Rothschild

shares. Although this piece is monochromatic, she works mostly in color. “Remembering Providenceâ€? is once such work, where a façade of red plays complementary to the green border of abstract foliage. The entire rug is reminiscent of a Mondrian, with its strong horizontal and vertical lines, and the use of blue, red, white and a hint of yellow to create a pleasing architectural visual. The commonality of all three artists is evident here, along with Landeck’s “Black House, Bleecker Street,â€? and Heming’s “Waterbury Façade.â€? All three incorporate the fronts of different ediďŹ ces, but there is a beautiful sense of symmetry and cohesiveness. Michael Heming is an architect, but his signature photographs certainly evoke the work of his grandfather, and are perhaps inuenced to some degree by his engravings. “New York Façade 1â€? and “New York Façade 2â€? are strikingly similar in composition, depicting the monoliths of Gotham City in their respective materials. Both portray fragments of buildings, a close-up view of these mortar, glass and brick structures in an abstract quality that accentuates the shapes, columns and windows inherent in these towering constructions. “Steps Sicily 1â€? and “Steps Sicily 2â€? use horizontal elements that create strong visual contrasts. The steps in the former are made of smooth, polished marble while the latter employs rough-hewn stone in various shapes and sizes. This exhibit allows the patron a chance to witness the creative process of three generations of talented artisans. Prints, Textiles, and Photographs: Architectural Abstractions Across Three Generations at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Gordon Library, 3rd Floor. The show runs from August 23-October 14. Artists’ reception: September 8 from 5-7 p.m. For more information, go to wp.wpi.edu/library.

Boylston brothers bring Broadway to Calliope Theatre Vanessa Formato

The Lazours didn’t always know they’d be here. What started as a simple class assignment to write a play catalyzed a passion that led two brothers to the Calliope Theatre, where they will stage their third original musical, “Affairs of a French Afternoon,” starting Thursday, August 18.

At only 20 and 17 years old, Patrick and Daniel Lazour are poised to take the thespian world by storm. The Lazours already set the bar high for “Affairs” with two loosely historical Broadway-style comedies that received rave reviews. “The Tribulations of a Millionaire,” their first show and the result of the aforementioned class assignment, revolved around the misadventures of a rich woman in New York City in 1929. A second musical, “Robynn McCree,” followed shortly after, selling out every one of its shows,

a huge accomplishment considering the popularity of more modern theater. “People are yearning to hear classic musical theater,” says Patrick, a soon-tobe junior at Boston College, “and in that there’s kind of a revolution.” A fusion of the classic and modern theater will take center stage in “Affairs,” the tale of Louis XVI’s search for true love at the dawn of the French Revolution. Louis falls for a woman promised to another man, while his servant schemes to gain a fortune by marrying off one of his three bumbling bourgeois sisters to the king. In Shakespearean style, there are mistaken identities and crazy mix-ups, but the Lazours have set the delightful mayhem to a unique score. “You get this classic Broadway with this thread of what’s current now, which I think is really exciting,” says Daniel, who composes the music. “In the beginning [writing musicals] was more of a fun thing to do together,” says Patrick, “and that’s evolved into a certain professionalism.” The Lazours’ no-nonsense approach to creating comedy has a played a large role in getting them where they are today. Without the determination to approach the Calliope Theatre themselves for performance space, none of this may have happened. “What we didn’t anticipate… was the degree of professionalism that these

two young people would bring to the experience,” Dave Ludt, president of Calliope Productions, says, “which, combined with their energy and contagious enthusiasm, along with the talents of their creative team and performers, established levels of quality and excitement that many other theaters rarely attain.” When you talk to the Lazours, you get the sense that they know they have something special on their hands: they exude confidence, the kind that may be particular to young people who dream. At the same time, what makes them particularly compelling is their disarming modesty and kindness. When Patrick proclaims offhand that “Affairs” “will be one of the best community theater experiences you’ll ever have,” the two are quick to remind me that it’s really cast and crew—not them—to thank for it. They say “thank you” often, even when they don’t have to. They don’t take success for granted.

“It’s so great to know that these actors can be so professional and respect you as you respect them, and that’s been one of the most rewarding things about this cast” says Daniel, who will be a senior at St. John’s High this year. The brothers are grateful for the chance to produce “Affairs” with professional actors and crew members, including director Eric Butler, to whom they credit that opportunity. “Our main goal is to make people laugh” Daniel says, “and hopefully go out of the theater singing some tunes and realizing that there is still Broadway that they can enjoy.” “Affairs of a French Afternoon” will be playing at the Calliope Theatre August 1820 at 7:30 p.m. and August 21 at 2 p.m. For tickets, visit calliopeproductions.org or call 508-869-6887. General admission, $15; student and seniors, $12. Calliope Theatre, 150 Main St., Boylston.

The concept of an alien invasion uniting various factions previously at each other’s throats is a trope so overplayed that it hardly bears repeating. It’s so mainstream that New York Times economist Paul Krugman has sarcastically offered it as a solution to obstinate Republicans versus cowering Democrats in Washington, probably unaware it’s the same solution given in “The Watchmen.” Director/ writer Joe Cornish on the other hand knows full well how unoriginal the idea for his directorial debut “Attack the Block” is, and demonstrably doesn’t care. Instead of trying to make it seem new he goes for ensemble humor, and succeeds. There is something original in this film: the teenage gang that collectively acts as the central character. Likely inspired by 70’s street life flicks such as “The Warriors,” they start out as a silent menacing presence, faces masked and lurking in the streets of the London neighborhood where they live. On a night of fireworks, a girl returning from work (Sam, played by Jodie Whittaker) runs into them and they summarily mug her for her purse and jewelry, with the quiet leader Moses (John Boyega) wielding a switchblade. Suddenly something falls from the sky and crashes into a parked car. Sam runs off and Moses goes to investigate, discovering that an alien beast has landed. The gang chases the creature to the nearby park and into a small pagoda. There is a blood-curdling shriek. As an audience we have been trained to assume the next scene will show the bad guys have all been devoured. Instead they emerge triumphant, with the alien’s body on a stick, and become the film’s main focus. With a loopy sense

of conquering pride they march their trophy back to the building they live in. Cue Steven Price’s loping, ominous soundtrack, portentousness set to a martial beat. We soon learn that the troubles for these kids have only just begun. Soon murderous ape-like aliens with glowing phosphorescent teeth will swoop down, but in the steady build up to this, Cornish keeps the tempo relentless as he introduces the real meat of the story: this interracial group of kids and the hilarious mashup of Cockney/Hip-Hop/ Rasta interspersed with misplaced pop culture references they converse in. They act like the most badass mother’s on the planet, but still have to call their parents on their cell phones to stay out later. This band of misfits take the carcass up the elevator to the penthouse lair of their calm, paternal drug dealing buddy Ron, played by Nick Frost, who we eventually learn is the guard for a weed growing operation headed up by the true boss of the block. Frost for his part does absolutely nothing in the entire film except sit around, get high and exists as the onscreen living link to the past genrespoofing salad say of “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz.” This is not a bad thing. There is a wonderful scene later on where the camera cuts from the mayhem going on outside to Frost and an older kid (played by Luke Treadaway) sitting on a couch and looking obliviously out at nothing. And then they both simultaneously exhale the hit of pot they’ve been holding in. Whittaker exudes a tough sexiness as the fetching downstairs neighbor thrown together with the kids that previously robbed her. We learn she’s a nurse, and she reluctantly dresses the wound of one of the kids who has had his leg nearly bitten off. Before long she’s joined their posse, wielding a kitchen knife as the awful aliens swarm the building. In the end, Cornish’s clever story becomes not so much about bloody sci-fi thrills (though there are plenty) but how people can learn to accept and find happiness in their own urban environment and the very different types it brings together. Sometimes all it takes is an alien invasion.

FOOD ★★★★1/2 AMBIENCE ★★★ SERVICE ★★★ VALUE ★★★★★ 148 Chandler St., Worcester • 508-753-0688

Complex food at simple prices Kendra Lapin

Worcester is a mecca of great Vietnamese restaurants; just travel up Stafford Street onto Park Avenue. Vietnam Café, on Chandler Street and just off Park Avenue, epitomizes all the great things about these restaurants: amazing and complex food at ridiculously cheap prices.

It’s a tiny restaurant with only six fourperson tables and pretty, but worn, décor. Take-out is a large part of the business as several people came in for orders at lunch, and they were out of to-go menus. Service was reasonable. You order at the counter, the food (and delicious complimentary

STEVEN KING

tea) is brought out on an old-school lunchroom tray by the one server/cashier, and you pay at the counter. The actual eating experience makes up for the simplicity of everything else, though. Scott and I started by splitting one of the traditional Vietnamese sandwiches, a banh mi, made from beef. It was a good sized sandwich and only cost $3–then you take a bite and realize there must be a bit of magic involved. Every bite squirts into your mouth, full of slightly spicy sauce, as well as juices of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and meat; yet nothing drips from the sandwich. It looks dry, and there are only crumbs from the yummy, crusty French bread, yet its texture drips with flavor. It’s also not super-packed, like most subs are, yet it’s extremely filling. Either Scott or I could have ordered just the banh mi for lunch and been satisfied. Our next course was the meals. I ordered one of my perpetual favorites: vermicelli with pork, spring roll (called an egg roll here), and salad. Vietnam Café’s version also came with a grilled shrimp. All of the components were as good as I’ve had at my other favorite Vietnamese

restaurants, for about the same price of $7.50, but the single grilled shrimp made this one even more outstanding. The skin was charred, but even after peeling, there was a great smoky flavor and the inner meat was still perfectly moist. I ate it in tiny bites to savor. Scott’s usual is the extralarge Special Soup, which includes several different cuts of beef, including tripe, and plenty of noodles. Fresh herbs, bean sprouts, hot peppers, and lime are served cold and separately for the diner to add according to his or her preference. The meat was perfectly tender and the broth is now one of his new favorites. Priced at $7.25 and served in a bowl almost as big as his head, with as much meat and noodles as broth and a whole extra plate for the herbs and veggies, the soup was a steal. Lastly, we both got fruit “shakes.” The shakes are 16-ounce frozen drinks made from various fruits and were brought out as we were finishing our meals. Scott ordered the durian, an exotic and pungent

fruit, while I ordered the rich-but-nottoo-sweet mix of mung bean and coconut. Although we were stuffed with dinner, we still finished our drinks because they were so good. The total bill for the sandwich, two filling meals, and two fruit drinks was $25.05. Anyone could come into this restaurant, though, and get a filling, delicious meal for under $10, if not under $5. If you’re a fan of Vietnamese food or you just want to try this excellent cuisine, Vietnam Café is a great place to start for just the right price.

Pho Dakao 593B Park Ave., Worcester 508-756-7555 Warning: If you’re not familiar with Vietnamese food, don’t go stomping into Pho Dakao looking for greasy red spare ribs or poufs of tempura shrimp. That’s not to say you can’t enjoy a safe Asian meal, but rather, that you have a new world of options open to you. Subtle French influences on Vietnamese food abound, from bright fresh vegetables to carefully composed plates to layered blends of warm spices. Pho Dakao offers an excellent example of this healthful cuisine. The more daring should try the Seafood Fire Pot, a traditional

22

Asian dish that allows the diner to simmer raw ingredients in broth at the table. Viva Bene Ristorante 144 Commercial St., Worcester 508-799-9999 viva-bene.com Viva Bene is an excellent date destination in the heart of Worcester entertainment district, right across the street from the Centrum and down the road from the Paladium and Irish Times. Dinner and dessert are top notch and include vegetarian friendly pasta choices.

The ingredients are clearly high quality with attention to detail in flavor, texture, and appearance. Entrée options are filling and dessert is a must. To save some money, forego appetizers and look for online or mailed coupons. Sweet 305 Shrewsbury St., Worcester 508-373-2248 If you’re jonesin’ for something sweet, how can you go wrong than with a place called Sweet, the cherry on Shrewsbury Street’s sundae. The dessert bar behind the pastry shop is a hybrid of cool and cute, savory and sugary, and is a cheerful addition to the downtown dining scene. Loaded with wonderful sounding diet-wreckers like bananas foster, tucked into a deep-fried spring roll, lavender crème brulee and the minimalist chocolate — a sample of the finest cacao washed down with a shooter of liquid chocolate — the menu should come with a surgeon general’s warning: Diabetics enter at your own risk. Chocolate martini anyone? Michael’s Place Bar & Restaurant 141 Worcester Road, Webster

25

508-943-4147 Webster’s own version of “Cheers” is a warm, welcoming place, even if you’re not a townie. The menu is hefty, and features a vast array of steaks, seafood, burgers and sandwiches — prices top out at $21 (as of our Jan. ’09 review) for the fisherman’s platter. Try “Michael’s Special Steak” or any of the numerous offerings from “Baskets and More.” Portions are generous but not grotesque — an excellent value, given the quality and the price.

Carl’s Oxford Diner 291 Main St., Oxford 508-797-8770 Carl’s is a great breakfast and/or lunch destination with a fun atmosphere that won’t zap your wallet. If you like diners, and diner food, hop down to Oxford for this quintessential experience. Health nuts may be a bit uncomfortable with the excessive caloric comfort food, but with fruit-covered pancakes and waffles, one doesn’t have to be a meat-eater to appreciate something on the menu — though, of course, meat-eaters will be pleased. Good service and generous portions only add to the charm.

Danny and the Deep Blue Sea (an Apache Dance) by John Patrick Shanley runs from today through Saturday, August 27; directed by Danny Zeliger, featuring Cameron Miller and Alana Osborn-Lief.

Tim Collins

Fate struck at the right moment for Tim Collins. While pitching for Worcester (Main South) Post 341, the 5’5” southpaw was set to pitch against American Legion Post 201 and its 6’7” lefty Keith Landers, a college Major League prospect. Landers didn’t end up pitching that day, but his raw talent brought out former general manager of the Toronto Blue Jays J. P. Ricciardi – also a Worcester native – to watch the game, hoping to catch a glimpse. Collins ended up pitching four solid innings and Ricciardi saw something unexpected. Collins was offered a shot at the Blue Jays farm system, and so the big league dreams began. A trade between Toronto and the Atlanta Braves sent Collins south to play in the Braves farm system, but he soon was traded to his new home with the Kansas City Royals, and had his Major League debut this past March 31. We caught up with this Worcester native to find out what life is like in the big league.

How often did you play baseball as a child? I played almost every day.

What do you do when you come back to Worcester? I’m not a big “go out type

Even when I wasn’t playing organized baseball, I would be at my friend’s house in the backyard playing sandlot baseball. Every chance I got, I was playing.

of person.” I just like to relax. I love bowling to be honest. I go bowling every night of the week. During my off-season its still in-season for me because the way I look at it, I got five months to prepare for the next seven. I’ve got a short amount of time to get into the best shape possible and once you get in season, there isn’t a lot you can do to gain strength. It’s all about maintaining during the season. So, I like to get in the best shape as possible and maintain that shape. When it comes to the off season I don’t really go out and drink or do much of that stuff. I’m more of a relaxed person.

Did you play any other sports? Up

until my freshman year in high school I played everything – baseball, basketball, football.

What’s it like to be a professional player from Worcester? It’s pretty awesome.

There are just a couple guys, like Rich Gedman, and they made it just as far as I did. And obviously Rich Gedman was an all-star catcher for the Red Sox, so he’s accomplished a lot more than I have in my career so far; obviously he played a lot longer than I have. But to come from a small city where there are not many guys who’ve made it as far as I have is pretty cool. [Gedman played for the Red Sox from 1980-90 and made two all-star teams, 1985-86].

On pitching in Boston... That was probably the best experience of my career so far. I dreamed of playing there as a little kid. Obviously being an undrafted free agent was in itself a shock, and then once I made it here playing at Fenway Park was something I’ve always dreamed of. It was pretty

Two minutes with...

awesome, and I got to share it with all my family and friends. They were there for every game. It was awesome, but pretty hectic. I had to take a lot of pictures and sign a lot of autographs, but it was only four days so I took advantage of it. I was out on the field and hanging out with my family as much as possible.

What was it like growing with the perception of being smaller player? Through Little League I was always as good as everybody and no one was that much bigger than me. But then when I got to Babe Ruth, kids started hitting their growth spurt. I had a couple of guys on my team who were 6’ and 200 pounds, and I was like 5’ tall and 85 pounds. That’s when people started noticing, and I couldn’t play first base anymore. I was put in the outfield and pitched. Then when I got to high school, I was just as good if not better than everybody I played, but I was always a lot smaller and that kind of drove me to work harder than everybody. That’s something my dad and high school coach still say to me: “Don’t let anybody out work you.” And I always tell them, “I never have.”

When did you get your chance to really start pitching? I didn’t start pitching until my junior year [at Worcester Vocational]. I pitched once my sophomore year but we always had the older guys throwing, so I didn’t pitch regularly until I was junior and that’s when I started realizing how good I was at pitching. I always knew I was good in Little League and Babe Ruth, but once I hit my junior year and started throwing a little harder and developing the off-speed stuff, that’s when I realized pitching was my craft.

What happens after baseball? Do you come back to Worcester or do you go somewhere else? I’ve always seen myself living in Worcester my whole life. I love the city. It’s where I grew up and my whole family is there. It’d be nice to live somewhere really nice. I really like San Diego and places like that but I’ve always seen myself living in Worcester my whole life. For now that’s that plan unless things change.
