t’s almost here. After months of campaigning, an onslaught of debates, accusations traded back and forth, political commercials almost every two minutes and the seemingly endless opinions of pundits around the country, the Nov. 6 election is just ďŹ ve days away. All the rhetoric, campaign stumping and pithy slogans boil down to more than 12 hours of voting in a single day. You have been bombarded with “robocalls,â€? mailings, Tweets and Facebook postings imploring you to vote for this person, don’t vote for that person. Now you have the opportunity to decide for yourself who you want in the Oval OfďŹ ce and in Congress. Here in Massachusetts you have the chance to vote on three ballot questions. Closer to home in Worcester you will help decide House and Senate races that directly impact your everyday lives. Worcester Mag is ready to do its part with a special election guide. Inside, you will ďŹ nd candidate proďŹ les for all the contested local races in our coverage area, as well as a special ballot you can pull out and take to the polls. We explain each of the ballot questions in language you can understand and offer up voting day essentials that you can’t do without (Worcester Mag-style, of course). Especially for our Worcester readers, we update the efforts that local ofďŹ cials have taken to ensure each and every voter has an uninterrupted experience at the polls.

discussion with District 2 Councilor Phil Palmieri’s Committee on Public Service & Transportation and later the same night at a council meeting. Economou says the timing was merely coincidental, but it left the victim’s sister wondering what might have been. “I feel we shouldn’t have to wait until a tragedy like this happens on a darkened road,” an emotional Phoebe Gonzalez told councilors recently. “I know this petition had to go through due process the past six months, and I also know had those lights been up there people who looked out would have seen him lying there and would have been able to identify the vehicle leaving. There is a direct correlation between safety and street lights and this is a very clear indication. I know it’s a due process, but it should also be a priority for city.” Gonzalez cited the area surrounding the former Boys & Girls Club on Ionic Avenue as another trouble spot. When she was much younger, she said, it was always brightly lit at night; now it is dark. Economou admits things might have turned out different for Montero had a light been in place, saying, “A week or two earlier, this may or may not have happened,” he says. “This is just an unfortunate tragedy, but people are less likely to commit crimes in well-lit areas. It just goes to show the importance of street lights being in working condition.” Palmieri’s committee gave the okay to a light on the roof of what is commonly referred to as the beach house in the parking lot. Recommendations will also be made for extra lighting at the convergence of Clason Road and Sherburne and Stowell avenues. Fiore notes that on Clason Road, there is a light on every other street pole. The last pole on the street is almost completely surrounded by leaves and branches, he says, making it almost impossible to install a light. The parking lot and beach area, while at the end of Clason Street, is under the purview of the

Parks, Recreation & Cemetery Division. Now that attention has been brought to the beach area, the expectation is for crews to install a light as quickly as possible. The city owns most of its streetlights after purchasing the system from National Grid two years ago (it also owns all aluminum poles, but National Grid still owns the wooden poles). The typical response time to replace a light is between two to four days, according to Fiore. Customers who call to report an outage speak directly to a customer service representative. The request is forwarded to a contractor who will then replace the light. Once a light is installed, of course, there are maintenance costs. Fiore says the general cost per light a month is 94 cents. That equates to about $13,000 a month. When other maintenance costs are factored in, such as streetlight falls, excavation and emergency response, the annual cost is to around $1 million, according to Fiore. Have a story idea or comment?

Putting a STOP to it Treating drug addiction at Worcester County Jail Walter Bird Jr.

C

hucky has been doing time at the Worcester County House of Corrections (WCHOC) for about a year. He has six months left on an 18-month sentence on a weapons charge and just celebrated his 21st birthday – behind bars. Like many of the roughly 1,200 inmates in jail either awaiting trial or serving out a sentence, he showed up with a drug habit. Since no drugs are allowed in jail, Chucky had to quit cold turkey. Once he was there six months, however, he was eligible to take part in the jail’s drug treatment program, appropriately titled the Substance Treatment Opportunity Program (STOP). “I’ve never been in a program like this before,” he says while sitting in a classroom where he is working toward his GED. “I want to change, and it helps me do it.” The $358,000 program, which benefits from an approximately $80,000 state grant, is based out of a separate building at the jail – in the former women’s facility – although classrooms are housed next door. It is a 36-bed facility with three councilors. The medium-security program is voluntary and lasts six months. While they are separate from each other, the jail, which was accredited by the American Correctional Association in 2008 and most recently reviewed in March, also offers an educational program. Many STOP participants have gone through it, and Sheriff Lew Evangelidis sees the two as vital to one another. According to Evangelidis, neither program was up to snuff when he came on last year after winning election in November 2010. He replaces former Sheriff Guy Glodis, and when he campaigned, Evangelidis promised a renewed focus on drug prevention. “I felt the programs we have weren’t functioning well,” he says. “We’re still a work in progress. You’re seeing a place in transition, classrooms with more students and teachers who are more dedicated.” While the sheriff’s department did not provide a detailed budget, Evangelidis says he has made cuts in most areas – education is one. According to director of education Darla Lamanna, there used to be nine part-time and three full-time teachers. There are now four teachers, all full-time. Where Evangelidis hasn’t cut, he has replaced some positions. Lamanna is one example. In the case of STOP, the sheriff went right to the source: Peter Kosciusko started the program and is the director of Substance Abuse Services. He

worked under Glodis, but left about four and a half years ago. After Evangelidis took over, Kosciusko says he started hearing good things were happening at the jail, so he reapplied. According to Kosciusko, about 590

inmates have gone through STOP since it was established in 2006 – to date, 388 (68.5 percent) have graduated. There is, he says, a waiting list for the program with about 34 inmates currently taking part. Both he and Evangelidis say they

could easily triple the number of beds and fill them within a week – if they could afford it. STOP graduates have about a 30-percent lower recidivism rate than

the rest of the inmates, says Kosciusko. Evangelidis estimates approximately 90 percent of the inmates have some sort of alcohol or substance abuse problem. Those numbers are important, according to Stephen Morreale, an assistant professor at Worcester State University and interim chair of the Criminal Justice Department, because they can be used as examples that the program is worth continuing. “Like anything else, any time we have a program and we’re spending taxpayer

6

money, there has to be clear, convincing evidence that it works,” says Morreale. “It has to be evaluated. Not all programs are going to be successful.” Kosciusko believes STOP is a proven success, even if it is not a cure-all. “It’s not perfect,” he says, “but it is effective. I brought yoga in here. We had to let that go because of a lack of funding. There was skepticism in the jail, but we didn’t have a fight when people took it. What better place to teach stress reduction than in jail?” In order to qualify for entry into the

program, inmates must be in jail at least six months. Those who are only serving a six-month term do not make the cut. Inmates are exposed to several different programs under STOP, including 12-step recovery, victim impact, parenting and education. They also take part in New Direction, a research-based curriculum designed especially for addicts to challenge their own way of thinking. Other offerings include lessons on communicable diseases, reintegration and dual diagnosis. Programs like STOP are vital in

rehabilitating criminals, says Morreale, who has also served as prevention coordinator with the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). “There is a two- or three-pronged approach to the drug problem and one has to be prevention,” says Morreale. “To turn our backs on them or incarcerate them without any alternative or hope, you are creating a potentially revolving door. If we don’t give some inmates hope, what’s the alternative?” Have a story idea or comment? Call Walter at 508-749-3166, ext. 243, or email wbird@worcestermag.com

NEITHER RAIN, NOR SLEET, NOR HURRICANE SANDY: How committed are election officials to AND IN THIS CORNER: Our cover making sure things run like clockwork on story last week about Worcester Election Day? Enough so that not even a boxer Edwin Rodriguez, “A real fighter: Edwin Rodriguez on the hurricane could force the cancellation of verge,” touched a nerve for David Monday’s Election Commission meeting. Docimo, a Grafton Hill-area resident While it didn’t exactly draw a lot of who counts his family among the spectators, all but one member attended the highly ranked fighter’s biggest fans. meeting, according to Commissioner Dave Docimo left a message on this writer’s Lapierre. “I was surprised. I was anticipatingvoicemail in which he said, in part: “We are absolutely in (Rodriguez’s) the meeting to be postponed,” Lapierre says. “But almost everybody was available corner. And I disagree. I think the people of Worcester are on his side. and the weather really wasn’t as bad as I can certainly tell you the Docimo they anticipated, at least for our area.” The family is on his side, regardless of biggest news to come out of the meeting where he was from. We’ve seen him fight everywhere around here, even was a move by the secretary of state in Foxwoods. We are very, very much to adopt the requirement that all polling behind him. After reading that article, place observers provide identification. It is there were many things I didn’t know somewhat controversial, because voters, in about his personal life. I just want to let most instances, cannot be asked to show the people of Worcester know that we IDs. Observers typically sit inside the polling are behind him. It was a great article you wrote, and we wish nothing but the place in a designated spot and keep an best for that kid and his family.” eye on things, offering up challenges if they believe someone is not eligible to vote. IN THE DARK: Concern has been In addition, observers must wear a badge raised over the safety of some of the and check in with the poll warden upon city’s more dimly lit areas, especially in arrival. “I’m not a big fan of showing IDs, but the wake of Nathan Otero’s murder in a parking lot on the shore of Indian essentially you need to,” says Lapierre. Lake. But residents aren’t always the only ones in the dark. City councilors routinely file petitions – something raised in a story in this week’s issue of Worcester Mag – and when they do, that is often the last they hear of the issue. District 5 Councilor Bill Eddy, who chairs the council’s Committee on Public Safety and is among the city’s cheerleaders when it comes to increased spending for emergency services, says he hardly ever learns whether a petition has been acted on. “What happens when we petition, half the time I never know if it’s been done. People will send notes all the time asking us to address something, but when you do get something done, you rarely hear about it.”

A WAITING GAME FOR SHARKS: If there is going to be a boost in ticket sales for the city’s American Hockey League team from the NHL lockout, it hasn’t come yet, according to Worcester Sharks media relations honcho Eric Lindquist. “From now until Christmas, people are in football mode,” says Lindquist. “We don’t expect a big bump until after Christmas. There hasn’t been any significant [increase in ticket sales] because of the lockout. Everybody’s waiting to see what happens.” Thursday could be the trigger date for fans holding out on the Sharks – that’s when the NHL is expected to announce the cancellation of the annual Winter Classic. So far, with three home games under their belts, the Sharks are averaging just fewer than 3,700 fans a game, Lindquist says. Down the road apiece, the Providence Bruins are making out like gangbusters, averaging some 9,800 fans per game. Might that have a little something to do with their parent team being the Boston Bruins and the Sharks’ being way out on the west coast? “For sure,” says Lindquist. “For sure.”

ARE YOU HEARING VOICES?: Worcester native Sam James was back home last week and made an appearance at City Hall, accompanied by adoring friends and families, to accept a key to the city. The 26-year-old singing phenom was booted from TV’s “The Voice.” While on break he has been touring with a band that includes Duncan Arsenault, Paul Buono and Jeremy Curtis. James says his experience on “The Voice” has been “really good.” At the same time, he jokes, it is “the longest contract ever.” James is eager to get back to his roots in Worcester. He says he’ll be playing the Lucky Dog “in December at some point.” Being back in Worcester, says James, “is amazing, honestly. I’m always a Mass. guy. I love it here, especially Worcester. I’m not a Boston guy.” For a daily dose of Worcesteria, visit worcestermag.com/blogs/dailyworcesteria. Have a story idea or comment?

Putting a STOP to it Treating drug addiction at Worcester County Jail Walter Bird Jr.

C

hucky has been doing time at the Worcester County House of Corrections (WCHOC) for about a year. He has six months left on an 18-month sentence on a weapons charge and just celebrated his 21st birthday – behind bars. Like many of the roughly 1,200 inmates in jail either awaiting trial or serving out a sentence, he showed up with a drug habit. Since no drugs are allowed in jail, Chucky had to quit cold turkey. Once he was there six months, however, he was eligible to take part in the jail’s drug treatment program, appropriately titled the Substance Treatment Opportunity Program (STOP). “I’ve never been in a program like this before,” he says while sitting in a classroom where he is working toward his GED. “I want to change, and it helps me do it.” The $358,000 program, which benefits from an approximately $80,000 state grant, is based out of a separate building at the jail – in the former women’s facility – although classrooms are housed next door. It is a 36-bed facility with three councilors. The medium-security program is voluntary and lasts six months. While they are separate from each other, the jail, which was accredited by the American Correctional Association in 2008 and most recently reviewed in March, also offers an educational program. Many STOP participants have gone through it, and Sheriff Lew Evangelidis sees the two as vital to one another. According to Evangelidis, neither program was up to snuff when he came on last year after winning election in November 2010. He replaces former Sheriff Guy Glodis, and when he campaigned, Evangelidis promised a renewed focus on drug prevention. “I felt the programs we have weren’t functioning well,” he says. “We’re still a work in progress. You’re seeing a place in transition, classrooms with more students and teachers who are more dedicated.” While the sheriff’s department did not provide a detailed budget, Evangelidis says he has made cuts in most areas – education is one. According to director of education Darla Lamanna, there used to be nine part-time and three full-time teachers. There are now four teachers, all full-time. Where Evangelidis hasn’t cut, he has replaced some positions. Lamanna is one example. In the case of STOP, the sheriff went right to the source: Peter Kosciusko started the program and is the director of Substance Abuse Services. He

worked under Glodis, but left about four and a half years ago. After Evangelidis took over, Kosciusko says he started hearing good things were happening at the jail, so he reapplied. According to Kosciusko, about 590

inmates have gone through STOP since it was established in 2006 – to date, 388 (68.5 percent) have graduated. There is, he says, a waiting list for the program with about 34 inmates currently taking part. Both he and Evangelidis say they

could easily triple the number of beds and fill them within a week – if they could afford it. STOP graduates have about a 30-percent lower recidivism rate than

the rest of the inmates, says Kosciusko. Evangelidis estimates approximately 90 percent of the inmates have some sort of alcohol or substance abuse problem. Those numbers are important, according to Stephen Morreale, an assistant professor at Worcester State University and interim chair of the Criminal Justice Department, because they can be used as examples that the program is worth continuing. “Like anything else, any time we have a program and we’re spending taxpayer

6

money, there has to be clear, convincing evidence that it works,” says Morreale. “It has to be evaluated. Not all programs are going to be successful.” Kosciusko believes STOP is a proven success, even if it is not a cure-all. “It’s not perfect,” he says, “but it is effective. I brought yoga in here. We had to let that go because of a lack of funding. There was skepticism in the jail, but we didn’t have a fight when people took it. What better place to teach stress reduction than in jail?” In order to qualify for entry into the

program, inmates must be in jail at least six months. Those who are only serving a six-month term do not make the cut. Inmates are exposed to several different programs under STOP, including 12-step recovery, victim impact, parenting and education. They also take part in New Direction, a research-based curriculum designed especially for addicts to challenge their own way of thinking. Other offerings include lessons on communicable diseases, reintegration and dual diagnosis. Programs like STOP are vital in

rehabilitating criminals, says Morreale, who has also served as prevention coordinator with the federal Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). “There is a two- or three-pronged approach to the drug problem and one has to be prevention,” says Morreale. “To turn our backs on them or incarcerate them without any alternative or hope, you are creating a potentially revolving door. If we don’t give some inmates hope, what’s the alternative?” Have a story idea or comment? Call Walter at 508-749-3166, ext. 243, or email wbird@worcestermag.com

NEITHER RAIN, NOR SLEET, NOR HURRICANE SANDY: How committed are election officials to AND IN THIS CORNER: Our cover making sure things run like clockwork on story last week about Worcester Election Day? Enough so that not even a boxer Edwin Rodriguez, “A real fighter: Edwin Rodriguez on the hurricane could force the cancellation of verge,” touched a nerve for David Monday’s Election Commission meeting. Docimo, a Grafton Hill-area resident While it didn’t exactly draw a lot of who counts his family among the spectators, all but one member attended the highly ranked fighter’s biggest fans. meeting, according to Commissioner Dave Docimo left a message on this writer’s Lapierre. “I was surprised. I was anticipatingvoicemail in which he said, in part: “We are absolutely in (Rodriguez’s) the meeting to be postponed,” Lapierre says. “But almost everybody was available corner. And I disagree. I think the people of Worcester are on his side. and the weather really wasn’t as bad as I can certainly tell you the Docimo they anticipated, at least for our area.” The family is on his side, regardless of biggest news to come out of the meeting where he was from. We’ve seen him fight everywhere around here, even was a move by the secretary of state in Foxwoods. We are very, very much to adopt the requirement that all polling behind him. After reading that article, place observers provide identification. It is there were many things I didn’t know somewhat controversial, because voters, in about his personal life. I just want to let most instances, cannot be asked to show the people of Worcester know that we IDs. Observers typically sit inside the polling are behind him. It was a great article you wrote, and we wish nothing but the place in a designated spot and keep an best for that kid and his family.” eye on things, offering up challenges if they believe someone is not eligible to vote. IN THE DARK: Concern has been In addition, observers must wear a badge raised over the safety of some of the and check in with the poll warden upon city’s more dimly lit areas, especially in arrival. “I’m not a big fan of showing IDs, but the wake of Nathan Otero’s murder in a parking lot on the shore of Indian essentially you need to,” says Lapierre. Lake. But residents aren’t always the only ones in the dark. City councilors routinely file petitions – something raised in a story in this week’s issue of Worcester Mag – and when they do, that is often the last they hear of the issue. District 5 Councilor Bill Eddy, who chairs the council’s Committee on Public Safety and is among the city’s cheerleaders when it comes to increased spending for emergency services, says he hardly ever learns whether a petition has been acted on. “What happens when we petition, half the time I never know if it’s been done. People will send notes all the time asking us to address something, but when you do get something done, you rarely hear about it.”

A WAITING GAME FOR SHARKS: If there is going to be a boost in ticket sales for the city’s American Hockey League team from the NHL lockout, it hasn’t come yet, according to Worcester Sharks media relations honcho Eric Lindquist. “From now until Christmas, people are in football mode,” says Lindquist. “We don’t expect a big bump until after Christmas. There hasn’t been any significant [increase in ticket sales] because of the lockout. Everybody’s waiting to see what happens.” Thursday could be the trigger date for fans holding out on the Sharks – that’s when the NHL is expected to announce the cancellation of the annual Winter Classic. So far, with three home games under their belts, the Sharks are averaging just fewer than 3,700 fans a game, Lindquist says. Down the road apiece, the Providence Bruins are making out like gangbusters, averaging some 9,800 fans per game. Might that have a little something to do with their parent team being the Boston Bruins and the Sharks’ being way out on the west coast? “For sure,” says Lindquist. “For sure.”

ARE YOU HEARING VOICES?: Worcester native Sam James was back home last week and made an appearance at City Hall, accompanied by adoring friends and families, to accept a key to the city. The 26-year-old singing phenom was booted from TV’s “The Voice.” While on break he has been touring with a band that includes Duncan Arsenault, Paul Buono and Jeremy Curtis. James says his experience on “The Voice” has been “really good.” At the same time, he jokes, it is “the longest contract ever.” James is eager to get back to his roots in Worcester. He says he’ll be playing the Lucky Dog “in December at some point.” Being back in Worcester, says James, “is amazing, honestly. I’m always a Mass. guy. I love it here, especially Worcester. I’m not a Boston guy.” For a daily dose of Worcesteria, visit worcestermag.com/blogs/dailyworcesteria. Have a story idea or comment?

Blowin’ in the wind Janice Harvey

This letter is in response to a letter to the editor written in the October 18-24 edition (Message from One of the 47%). According to new data released by the bipartisan Congressional Research Service, welfare spending has just passed the $1 trillion mark for the first time in history (this does not include Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid). Welfare spending has increased 32 percent under this administration and it’s now the largest government expense in our budget. Is this the America that we want? We cannot continue to nurture a culture of dependency, to give the poor incentives to stay poor and discourage people from rising to their potential. Ben Franklin said it best: “The best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it”. Many poor people have been programmed to be recipients instead of being active participators in the game of life and success. We need to stop the cycle that has become a way of life rather than the safety net it was intended to be. I’m sure liberals would love to blame these eye-opening facts on the wealthy, as well as all the ills of the world because painting the rich as evil and corrupt is not a hard sell. Wealthy people are not tangible to most so, passing the buck becomes guiltless. President Obama’s intentional launch of class warfare has resulted in the most divisive country in recent history. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the top 20 percent highest income earners in this country already pay 65 percent of the taxes. How much is enough? 100 percent? To ask one minority group to shoulder the burden almost exclusively based on class is discriminatory and unethical. These are job creators and risk takers we are talking about. The notion that anyone who has built a business is inherently obligated to the government and his neighbor is a frightening philosophy. President Obama and Elizabeth Warren should re-read the children’s story ‘The Little Red Hen’. Which America do I want? The America I want preserves the principles of our founding fathers where opportunity is equal for all... the outcome is never a guarantee. Everyone is entitled to their own wealth and those who succeed are masters of their fate instead of being mastered by fate. Capitalism is the economic expression of liberty.

’m crossing my fingers as Hurricane Sandy whips herself into a frenzy; writing this column, I’m hoping the cable connection doesn’t take a hit. There’s something comforting about being hunkered down for the duration, wearing flannel pants and a hooded sweatshirt, watching leaves quiver and fall - as long as the power holds, that is. Here in the Burncoat area, storms tend to slam us harder. If it’s raining on lower Lincoln Street, chunks of ice are falling here on the hill. I’ve lost power during the last couple of blasts from Mother Nature, forcing me to haul my wares to my daughter’s house. Right now, my biggest worry is the risk of carpal tunnel in my left wrist. It could develop from punching the “MUTE” button on my remote in order to avoid listening to fibbers Scott Brown and Mitt Romney approve their messages. This “Frankenstorm,” as the weather geeks have christened it, reminds me of an interrupted summer vacation I survived back in ’91. Hurricane Bob didn’t seem like such a terrible threat – how could something named “Bob” be dangerous? My kids were six and 10 at the time, and the idea of cancelling a week at Hampton Beach was not to be considered. Leave it to me to book, for the first time in my young married life, a hotel located directly across the road from the ocean. We were determined to ride it all out; these storm warnings are always over-blown, we joked. We took the kids to the deserted beach, and flew the kites we bought on

the boardwalk. The kites swirled and dipped madly, wonderfully, and we barely noticed the odd glow that came over the horizon, a greenish stain that tinted the thick bed of clouds. Soon, bullhorns would drown out the giggles of my boy and girl, and we were ordered to evacuate. Reluctantly we tossed the kites into the trunk of the car and raced toward Worcester, thinking that we would be safer inland. It seemed as if every window in the city was crisscrossed with masking tape, marked with the X that would supposedly keep kitchens from being showered with shards of glass. Good ol’ Bob had sent us packing with the sand still clinging to our calves. We headed back to the beach hours later after learning that the town of Hampton had lifted its evacuation orders, only to discover that the ceiling of our hotel bathroom had collapsed under torrential rains and violent winds. My toiletries were soaked and matted with wet ceiling debris. We shrugged, and pulled the kites from the trunk. This would be the last vacation we spent as a family; divorce would blow in and send us scattering as stealthily as Bob. No bullhorn would announce our split, but once again we had ignored storm clouds until the skies opened. Twenty-one years later, I’m peering out the window at Sandy, hoping she makes fools of the meteorologists. They say she’s going to live up to the hype, and give us all memories of a storm we won’t soon forget. Those of us old enough to remember the Blizzard of ’78 grew up hearing about the Tornado of ’53, and Hurricane Diane. Here in New England, we measure the times of our lives by the weather, marking the years in icicles, snowflakes and raindrops. Here’s hoping Sandy isn’t adding to our buckets.

Race: Senator in 2nd Worcester District: Worcester Wds. 5-7, Wd. 8 Pcts. 1, 5; Auburn; Grafton; Leicester; Shrewsbury) Name: Michael Moore, incumbent Affiliation: Democratic Age: 49 Address: 7 Momin Drive, Millbury Reason for Running: I think we have a lot to do to move the economy forward, and I enjoy public service and interacting with my constituents. I think we’ve addressed lot, a lot of reform structurally in state government, such as transportation, economic development, pension reform, small business reform, healthcare reform, financial reform and community college reform. Obviously, the biggest issue facing us is jobs and looking for ways to help the economy grow. Over the last four years, I worked with the business community and helped address issues they brought up, like the Fair Share bill. Under Romney Care, companies were required to provide health insurance for 25 percent of their employees or pay a fine of $295 per person, per quarter. I was a co-sponsor to change that. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Calabria Restaurant, 7 South Main St., Millbury Race: Senator in 2nd Worcester District: Worcester Wds. 5-7, Wd. 8 Pcts. 1, 5; Auburn; Grafton; Leicester; Shrewsbury Name: Stephen Simonian, challenger Affiliation: Republican Age: 50 Address: 102 Rockland Rd., Auburn Reason for Running: My biggest thing is the government being there when its needed for people. I believe if I’m running for my district, the district comes first. My opponent last year voted against a measure that would take part of a $65 million, one-time surplus and distribute it to the 351 towns in the commonwealth to make up for local aid. He’s telling everyone he voted for it, but he only supported it when it went back to conference committee. I believe in working to fix problems and letting people know there are problems to be fixed. When my opponent ran four years ago, there was a lot rhetoric that he wouldn’t do this, but he filed his retirement paperwork immediately after being elected at the age of 45. He stands to collect more than $1 million in pension. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Zorba’s Taverna, 97 Stafford St., Worcester

Race: Representative in 6th Worcester District: Charlton Pcts. 1-3 Name: Peter Durant, incumbent Affiliation: Republican Age: 47 Address: 109 Charlton Rd., Spencer Reason for Running: I’m running to make a difference. Our state needs people who are going to present solutions in a positive manner. In a shortened term, we engaged our communities in roundtable meetings to craft legislation to bring forward. We brought various entities together to help employment in our area. I voted for additional local aid and increased aid to our school system. I worked to expose and look to eliminate waste in government, including the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway Conservancy. I co-sponsored a jobs package and within that package were proposals for this district. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Zorba’s Pizzeria & Tavern, 132 Sturbridge Rd., Charlton Race: Representative in 6th Worcester District: Charlton Pcts. 1-3 Name: Kathleen Walker, challenger Affiliation: Democratic Age: 70 Address: 96D Baker Pond Rd., Charlton Reason for Running: My opponent’s values are in direct opposition to mine. I want to do more to bring jobs into the area. There are too many people that are unemployed. I’ll continually work to protect the environment, seniors and veterans. I will do more to bring local aid funding back to the district, especially the schools. We did get more local aid this year, but not enough. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Fins & Tails, 858 Main St., Southbridge Race: Representative in 14th Worcester District: Worcester Wd. 1, Pct. 5; Wd. 2; Wd. 3, Pct. 1, 3, 5 Name: Jim O’Day, incumbent Affiliation: Democratic Age: 58 Address: 41 Winthrop St., West Boylston Reason for Running: When I was elected five and a half years ago, the issues of making certain we continue to invest in the economy and education, making sure people have quality of life; those issues are still important. I think the legislature has done a nice job of managing the budget. We have $1 billion in our rainy-day fund. We’re one of

four states that have that. Over the past two years, we’ve increased the amount of local aid given to towns. Overall, the job is to be able to wear a lot of different hats. I think I’ve been a champion in bringing a significant amount of money to help with the Asian Longhorned Beetle infestation. We’ve been able to take trees down and have a successful replanting effort. Being a state rep you have to look at numerous issues and be willing to take difficult positions and make difficult decisions. I’ve done that. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Coral Seafood, 225 Shrewsbury St., Worcester Race: Representative in 14th Worcester District: Worcester Wd. 1, Pct. 5; Wd. 2; Wd. 3, Pct. 1, 3, 5 Name: Bill McCarthy, challenger Affiliation: Republican Age: 47 Address: 16 Birmingham Rd., Worcester Reason for Running: I am running because I want my children to be able to raise their families here and not be forced out due to high taxes or economic reasons. And I want my parents and their peers to be able to enjoy their golden years without worry. We deserve a state representative devoted to people rather than politics. These are tough economic times we are living in and my opponent has either voted to increase our taxes or proposed going up in our income taxes and the capital gains taxes. Taxes are cruelest to people on fixed incomes. Retirees who have worked all their lives and are on these fixed incomes are hit a lot harder than people who are working. If you want to increase your taxes, then vote for Jim O’Day; if not, vote for me, Bill McCarthy, I have solutions to problems besides raising your taxes. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Information not available Race: Representative in 14th Worcester District: Worcester Wd. 1, Pct. 5; Wd. 2; Wd. 3, Pct. 1, 3, 5 Name: Winthrop Handy, challenger Affiliation: Independent Age: 64 Address: 53 Central St., West Boylston Reason for Running: I’m seeing the representation of the incumbent is lacking. He’s raising taxes. I am a 36-year small business owner. We need jobs, and we’ve got to create them in Worcester. He’s pretty much in lockstep with Democrats. Small business is about job creation, not government. In Worcester, I look at the empty courthouse. I’d like to see it used by Arts Worcester. It’s just a big facility that can be used for artists – visual, musicians, dance and theater. I’d like to tie Memorial Auditorium into it. I want to see other small businesses go in there in a start-up type program, really like the start-up program at WPI. I don’t think Worcester County has ever lived up to its potential. It just seems to be stalled. My opponents are managers. I

think I’m someone that can lead. I also want to see two casinos at Worcester Airport. Where Candidate Will Be on Election Night: Information not available

Race: Representative in 15th Worcester District: Worcester Wd. 3, Pct. 4; Wd. 4; Wd. 5, Pct. 3; Wd. 10, Pcts. 2-5 Name: Mary Keefe, challenger Affiliation: Democratic Age: 58 Address: 10 Oxford St., Worcester Reason for Running: For the past 13 years, as executive director, my work at the Pleasant Street Neighborhood Network Center has centered on organizing residents, immigrants, business leaders, churches and institutions to create strong coalitions that take on issues most important to the people of the Piedmont area of Worcester. We work to create opportunities that make our neighborhoods good places to live, raise families, work and grow older. We support and encourage people to become leaders and to have a voice that is raised to protect and preserve our public places; parks, schools, pools, libraries, transportation and our local jobs. This is what public dollars—our dollars—need to support and sustain. I see the opportunity of representing the 15th District in the State House as a great extension of my community work. Some of what I would like to prioritize includes local jobs, downtown development, local aid and a powerful Central Mass. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Blackstone Tap, 81 Water St., Worcester Race: Representative in 15th Worcester District: Worcester Wd. 3, Pct. 4; Wd. 4; Wd. 5, Pct. 3; Wd. 10, Pcts. 2-5 Name: Brian O’Malley Affiliation: Republican Age: 48 Address: 181 Belmont St., Worcester Reason for Running: Worcester, the second-largest city in Massachusetts, is a city with such great potential. I am running for state representative because the 15th Worcester District needs a representative that will answer to the citizens of the district, not party bosses and special interests. I am advocating for reform before revenue in state government, to reduce taxes and increase small business growth and the jobs that will be created because of it. I am advocating for increased investment in public safety, to bring the Worcester Police department to full recommended strength and make the streets of the 15th Worcester District and the entire city safer. I am advocating for legislators to look beyond partisan politics and work together to deal with current and any future crises in the best way for Worcester, the Commonwealth and the nation. continued on page 10

Where Candidate Will Be on Election Night: Information not available Race: Representative in 17th Worcester District: Leicester, Worcester Wd. 7, Wd. 8, Pcts. 2-4 Name: John J. Binienda, Sr., incumbent Affiliation: Democratic Age: 65 Address: 41 Circuit Ave. East, Worcester Reason for Running: “I’m running on my record,” says Binienda. “I have a record of 26 years of accomplishments.” The Democratic State Rep. says he will continue to push for Chapter 70 school-aid funding and Chapter 90 funding for road, bridge and highway repair. According to Binienda, securing local aid funding is paramount to his job if he is re-elected. Also, the incumbent says he would like to have visiting nurses allowed to have placards on the inside of their cars, preventing their vehicles being towed or ticketed while on call with a patient. Binienda currently chairs both the House Committee on Rules and the Joint Committee on Rules, while in the past having served as chair on several House committees including Revenue and Energy. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Main South American Legion Post, 121-21 Main St., Worcester. A spaghetti and meatball dinner will be provided starting around 7:45 p.m. Race: Representative in 17th Worcester District: Leicester, Worcester Wd. 7, Wd. 8, Pcts. 2-4 Name: William G. Lebeau Affiliation: Republican, challenger Age: 48 Address: 17 Warren Ave., Leicester Reason for Running: Bill Lebeau, challenger to incumbent John Binienda, says “like a lot of voters this year, I was getting fed up with cuts while there is waste,” saying that in Boston, there are “a lot of hand-outs instead of hand-ups,” explaining he believes employees at the state level are taking home salaries too large and if elected would fight to “start pushing that money back to the local level.” Lebeau says he wants to create a better environment in the 17th Worcester District for businesses to thrive in so their owners can hire more people. He wants to take a look at the current tax policy and find a way to roll retail tax and income tax back to 5 percent. Also on his agenda is public safety including repairs to emergency-response equipment. Lebeau says beginning at an early age, working as a paperboy in the area, he’s seen Worcester and Leicester “suffer,” noting crumbling sidewalks in the Webster Square area, and says he’ll fight for local aid to fund such local repairs needed. “As a veteran myself,” Lebeau notes the Valor Act saying “the benefits are not exactly what they say they are.” If elected, Lebeau states “I want to ensure veteran’s preference in hiring is enforced as required by our state laws.” Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Eller’s Restaurant, 190 Main St. (Rt. 9), Cherry Valley. The party will get started at 7:30 p.m. and be in full swing after results are in around 8 p.m.

He has voted to freeze unemployment tax increases, as a way, he believes, to create jobs. He has also sponsored legislation relating to jobs including “The Small Business Competitive Act.” The incumbent nominee has filed legislation to “penalize employers who intentionally hire illegal immigrants in place of legal citizens or legal immigrants,” according to the candidate’s website fattman. com. He also supports the Secure Communities program, aimed at deporting illegal immigrants who are convicted of dangerous crimes. Fattman wants to restructure the EBT welfare plan and locally, says he will to continue to fight for local investment and local aid. Where Candidate will be on Election Night: Days End Tavern, 287 Main St., Oxford, beginning at 8 p.m. Race: Representative in 18th Worcester District: Douglas; Oxford Pcts. 1, 4; Sutton; Webster Name: Donald D. Borque, challenger Affiliation: Democratic Age: 48 Address: 19 Oakmont St., Webster Reason for Running: Donald Borque, challenger to Ryan Fattman, says he’s running in the hopes of bringing the district’s four towns together to work toward a plan that will spark economic growth through bringing the area’s Chambers of Commerce and business owners together, then bringing their message to Boston. Borque says he’ll focus on adequately funding emergency services, and services for the elderly and those less fortunate. Borque was elected to the Webster Board of Selectmen in 2010 and currently serves as chairman. He also boasts 11 years as a Webster call fire fighter.

{ electionguide } The right to repair, end life and get high QUESTION 1: Availability of Motor Vehicle Repair Information Walter Bird Jr.

L

awmakers and auto-industry representatives acknowledge the confusion that surrounds the effort to require auto manufacturers to provide vehicle owners and independent auto repair shops equal access to the diagnostic information made available to manufacturers and authorized dealers. A “yes” vote makes this change; a “no” vote makes no change. Confounding the issue, however, is a legislative compromise that was struck on the last day of session after the deadline expired for removing questions from the ballot. It led to Right to Repair advocates launching a campaign urging voters not to vote on Question 1, claiming it would create a new law on top of the compromise. Since then, however, some advocates, including AAA of Massachusetts, have come out in support a “yes” vote. Their argument is that the compromise, while addressing the issue of making information available to consumers, does not go far enough in explaining just who the data – which would include information about your vehicle – belongs to. As a result, AAA is encouraging its members to support the ballot initiative. “As good as the law is, we feel people shouldn’t accept a compromise,” says John Paul, manager of public affairs for AAA. He adds that AAA was not part of reaching the compromise. Asked whether adopting Question 1 would create a problem, given there is already a law in place because of the compromise, Paul says, “That’s an interesting question. I don’t believe there has been an instance where a law was passed with a ballot question at the same time. Legislators have to use their wisdom and experience to craft a law that encapsulates both.” Opposition to Question 1 has included the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (AAM). Spokesperson Dan Gage told Worcester Mag earlier this year that the auto industry has already been making repair codes available to auto repairers. “We said we would provide the same information to independent shops and consumers that we do to the dealers,” Gage says. “All we can do is make it available. We can’t force them to buy the equipment and the data. We can force the dealers, but we can’t force the consumer.” And while many area shops have expressed staunch support of Question 1, not everyone is on board. Rusty Savignac, owner of Paxton Garage, in an earlier email to Worcester Mag, says: “I subscribe to several (websites) that we use frequently (to obtain information) and have many of the same factory scan tools the dealers’ techs use. Anyone who tells you that they are not available or incomplete is misinformed and is probably repeating something that they’ve been told and that they believe to be true without investigating it. Much like a time long ago when most folks believed the world was flat.” State Rep. Jim O’Day, D-West Boylston, concurs with AAA, saying he wishes the state-approved compromise made clear who owns the on-board diagnostic information. O’Day filed the Right to Repair Plus bill

about two years ago, which he says spoke to that issue. “I think consumers really benefit from this bill,” he says. “There is still some question as to who really owns the information. I still believe as the owner of the car, I own it. I still look at it as my right,” he says. “There are all kinds of data being produced. I own the car and all that data.

QUESTION 2: Prescribing Medication to End Life Sandy Quadros Bowles

T

his year Massachusetts voters will be asked whether to approve Question 2, a law proposed by initiative petition that allows a physician, at the request of a terminally ill patient, to prescribe medication that would end the patient’s life. Supporters say the question allows people to face the end of their lives with dignity and put an end to prolonged suffering. Opponents counter that the question could lead to abuses. Vague wording and incomplete definitions could open the door to unwanted or unnecessary death, they say. The varying viewpoints are reflected even in the names the two sides use to describe the proposal. Supporters call it “Death with Dignity.’’ Opponents describe it as “Physician-Assisted Suicide.’’ The law features a lengthy description, which includes the following requirements for patients seeking end-of-life medication. They are medically determined to be mentally capable of making and communicating health-care decisions. They have been diagnosed by attending and consulting physicians to have an incurable, irreversible disease that will, based on reasonable medical judgment, cause death within six months. They have voluntarily expressed a wish to die and have made an informed decision. Supporters say these stipulations serve as safeguards to ensure that the law is not misused and that patients

must take control of the decision. “This isn’t a question of life or death,’’ says Stephen Crawford, communications director for Yes on Dignity and a supporter of the proposal. The person allowed to choose this option is already dying, he says. “They have lost that battle with the disease.’’ But opponents argue that the law makes the elderly especially vulnerable to mercenary and other negative intentions. “It’s a recipe for abuse,’’ says Margaret Dore, a probate, inheritance and appeals lawyer and a supporter of Mass Against Assisted Suicide, an organization that actively opposes the question. “The law encourages people to throw away their lives.’’ As an attorney who deals with the elderly, Dore says she has seen “all sort of things.’’ One example, she says, concerns a man who was given ownership of his parents’ home while they were still living. Four days after the question was passed in his home state, “the adult son was asking how to get the pills.’’ Crawford dismisses these arguments as “scare tactics.’’ He says the law contains appropriate safeguards, including the requirement that two physicians certify that the patient has a terminal illness and is mentally capable of making decisions. Hospice care allows terminally ill patients to receive pain medication and other treatment to minimize suffering as they face the end of their lives. This treatment would eliminate the need for assisted suicide, opponents of the bill argue. Crawford counters that hospice is one choice, but that the end-of-life medication option should also be available. It’s not a choice everyone would make, he says. But he urged voters to allow others the choice. “We should have this as a choice,’’ he says. “It’s one of several choices, but it’s a choice’’ that should be offered. But Dore worries that a person talking about suicide sometimes “wants someone to talk them out of it.’’ She fears this law might give some “motive to push you along’’ toward suicide, rather than steer them to resources and support to reconsider.

QUESTION 3: Medical Use of Marijuana Stefanie Gough

T

he Massachusetts Medical Marijuana Initiative, also known as Question 3, is appearing on the Nov. 6, 2012 ballot. The proposed law, if it passes, would come into effect January 1, 2013. The measure would legalize the use of medical marijuana in the state, and would allow patients to possess up to a 60-day supply of the drug as determined by the state Department of Public Health (DPH) for their personal use. To qualify, a patient must have written certification from a physician that they have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition, the symptoms of which could benefit from the use of medical marijuana. State criminal and civil penalties would be eliminated for qualified patients using medical marijuana. Regarding the growing and providing of the drug, the law would allow nonprofit Department of

{ electionguide } City shores up voting rules for Nov. 6 election Walter Bird Jr.

E

lection officials in Worcester expect some 65,000 voters to head to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 6, to decide a presidential race and other key federal and state contests that could alter the direction of an entire country. Given the significance behind this year’s election, and given the events that allegedly transpired in some spots during the city’s primary election, more attention than ever is being paid to ensure voting next week goes off without a hitch. “I believe it’s probably a first for Worcester,” City Clerk David Rushford says of polling place shenanigans alleged to have transpired almost two months ago during the Sept. 6 primary. “That’s why it took seven trips to one location.” He was referring to incidents at the Murray and Wellington apartment complex where voters in Ward 10, precincts 3 and 5 turned out to vote. There were accusations of voter intimidation, with much of the criticism turned on the Tea Party and Activate Worcester. Bonnie Johnson, an organizer of Activate Worcester who was serving as a poll observer, was identified as among

those who allegedly caused problems, although she has vigorously denied any wrongdoing. Johnson has said Rushford was the instigator of some of the trouble at the polls, alleging he showed up on one occasion singling her out and screaming at her. A number of uniformed police officers ended up huddling outside the Murray and Wellington building, dealing with other accusations such as District 4 Councilor Sarai Rivera’s charge that she was illegally videotaped. Josh Meduna, assistant director of elections, also spent time at the complex, accompanied by a member of the Election Commission. The events led to a pair of emotional public meetings with the commission as well as impassioned declarations by city councilors that they would not tolerate a repeat of the Sept. 6 incidents. The incidents also resulted in election commissioners striking a tough pose and authorizing steps aimed at curbing voter intimidation. Among the moves was a requirement for all poll observers to provide their name and address in writing, identify themselves to

the poll warden, show proof of residency, wear a city-issued badge and be given a set of written rules as to what they can and cannot do inside a polling location.

in place to notify all voters who had been listed as inactive as well as to alert them as to where they must go to vote. The state’s redistricting resulted in some confusion for voters in the primary who were turned away from their usual voting place. Some voters also claimed they were disturbed by signs informing them they must be prepared to show an ID at the polls. As Meduna notes, there is no instance where only a photo ID would be required. In addition, even inactive voters can still vote if they show proof of residency, something that includes their name and address. If they do not have an ID, they can still cast a challenged ballot. Rushford, who has not denied coming across as intimidating at the primary, says he would not change a thing should similar incidents occur Nov. 6 “I wouldn’t hesitate to be that way again,” says Rushford, adding —David Rushford it should be “unnecessary,” because wardens and police would now have the training on how to handle any In addition, three training sessions were situation. set for all poll workers, along with three for police officers. Efforts were also put continued on page 14

{ electionguide } RULES continued from page 13

Election Commissioner John Goggins agrees that officials are better prepared for the general election, saying, “I think since the last election the commission has taken steps, training has been put in place and with the awareness of the issue generated by what happened as well as the legal opinions we have received, it has made us a stronger city.” One of the positives to come out of the last election, says Goggins, is election wardens learned how much authority they can exert inside the polling place. “We have strong wardens,” he says, noting they are allowed to detain any individual suspected of interfering with the voting process. “I don’t think a lot of them realized the power they had.” Even with tighter controls in place,

Rushford predicts a grueling election day, primarily because it is a “two-card” election. Because the secretary of state chose to include the full text of each of the state’s three ballot questions on each ballot – in both English and Spanish – it required a second card. That means election officials must be careful to provide each voter with two cards as well as make sure both cards are turned in. “It will be a long day,” says Rushford, concurring with Goggins that the city is better prepared since the last election. “I’m thankful we’ve had this challenge. It presented us with the opportunity to revisit with everyone about the need to adhere to an approved set of guidelines.” Have a story idea or comment?

Cultivation registration would allow only enough plants for a 60-day supply at a time, and is limited to the patient’s own use. If it passed, this law would not supersede Massachusetts or federal laws regarding the use of medical marijuana, nor would it require reimbursement by health insurers or the government for the costs of using it. Additionally, no accommodation would be required to smoke marijuana in a public place. Violations of the proposed law or the use of fraudulent DPH registration would be punishable by up to six months in a correctional facility or a fine of up to $500.

stipulations, while a “no” vote would make no change in existing laws. Opponent of the proposed law and president of the Massachusetts Prevention Alliance, Heidi Heilman argues that “what is happening in other medical marijuana states…is the most unrestrictive law this side of California. [It would] give a single physician the sole discretion to determine what conditions should be treated with medical marijuana.” In addition, she points out that there’s a severability clause included “that makes it virtually impossible to repeal this law if it does not work for Massachusetts.” On the pro side, representative for MassCann/NORML states his company’s mission as “working toward a more morally reasonable policy for cannabis and all its uses, including medicine.” The MassCann organization has endorsed Question 3, and believes that “it should be the privilege of a doctor to decide if a patient should use marijuana, and not a politician or a police officer.” Learn more about each group and their viewpoints at mapreventionalliance.org and masscann.org.

In these contentious times of hateand fear-mongering, negative ad campaigns, political mudslinging and partisan polarization, it’s good to be reminded that the executive branch of American government can be and has been witness to momentous historical events and, at times, even a locus of dignity. “The American President,” a new exhibit of Associated Press (AP) photography at the Worcester Public Library, provides just such a reminder.

The Office

The AP, a nonprofit news cooperative, has been reporting on world events since 1846. With offices in more than 300 locations worldwide, the AP is wellsituated no matter where news is happening. Still, just being there is only half the battle. Preparedness and a willingness to seek and find the unique yet representative shot characterize AP photography. AP has garnered 50 Pulitzer Prizes, including 30 for its photography. Several Pulitzer-winning photos are featured in this collection. This show premiered in April in Manhattan and remains on permanent display there, but a number of traveling exhibits will be shown at selected colleges, universities and libraries throughout the country. Responding to a national search by AP, Worcester Public Library applied and was chosen as one of these sites. The exhibit will consist of more than 80 photographs displayed on sixteen 36-by-27-inch panels on easels. The photographs, which go back over 150 years, are all captioned and include a brief written introduction by former president George H.W. Bush, as well as a continuously running nine-minute slide show featuring more than 200 images. The photos are divided into six general categories: Campaigns and Elections, Crisis and Scandal, At War, International Relations, At Ease, Assassinations and Attempts, and For the Record. Some of the photos are iconic: the 1963 photo of continued on page 16

Truman holding up a copy of the Chicago Tribune with its headline of “Dewey Defeats Truman.” There is Ronald Reagan in Berlin, calling upon Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall, Bill Clinton standing with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat as they shake hands to mark the signing of the 1993 peace accord and George W. Bush being apprised of the 9/11 attacks. While so many of these photos capture such well-known, weighty moments, many others catch these men in more private settings, in times of personal crisis and torment, such as Richard Nixon on the day of his resignation, Lyndon Johnson on the eve of his announcement that he would not seek reelection, Bill Clinton during the period of the impeachment proceedings against him. Still others catch another side of the commanders-in-chief, as they play with their pets, go fishing or display their musical talents, such as they were. The range and variety of situations, emotions and reactions on display in these photos serve to humanize these leaders

and make them more real than they can sometimes seem while reciting their talking points and spouting empty rhetoric. You’ll see storied names of the past – Lincoln, both Roosevelts, Eisenhower – and all the leaders within the living memory of just about all of us. “We encourage people to come in,” says Kate Oser, of the Worcester Public Library Foundation office’s department of publicity and marketing. “It’s a studentfriendly exhibit that could be made a topic for classroom conversation. The library’s central location and free access make it a great place, especially during election season. The timing is really good.” Images that have become frozen in time, our leaders caught by the cameras, rather than performing for them; the AP has seen and photographed it all. “The American President” will be on display through Nov. 19: Monday, Thursday and Saturday, 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; and Sunday 1:305:30 p.m. at the Worcester Public Library, 3 Salem Square.

Holy Cross celebrates women with “Machinal” more doors to open.”

In this highly energized political week between Democrats and Republicans banding about women’s issues, the College of the Holy Cross is celebrating its 40th anniversary of the admission of women to the College. “In addition to recognizing an important chapter in our history, our aim during [this] year… is to recognize women who are shaping Holy Cross today and tomorrow,” states Jacqueline Peterson, who chairs the committee organizing anniversary events. She further explains on the college website: “We know there are

One of the events is the presentation of the play “Machinal,” this weekend and next in O’Kane Hall (the building on the south end of the campus with the clock

extramarital affair, marriage, motherhood and murder offering a frankness of sexuality mores. “Machinal” is presented in the expressionist-theatre style, which emphasizes the inner experience rather

than realistic portrayals. The most remembered playwright of this form is probably Bertolt Brecht and later on in Elmer Rice’s “The Adding Machine” and Eugene O’Neill with his “Emperor Jones.” Expressionists were cultural outlaws, pacifists and socialists, rebelling by dramatizing the general dehumanization of man by modern society. Playwright Treadwell exhibited this style through the plight of women specifically. She turns the murderess, Helen Jones, into a sympathetic, tragic victim of the times. Senior acting student Erin McMahon, who portrays Jones, believes, “the stresses and problems that Helen faces late in the 1920s are similar to those of today. There are real moments in the show that will surprise the audience.” Director Isses expresses his feelings in producing this play with a group of students, “These rehearsals are also a teaching project. The kids are bringing energy and excitement and no irony or cynicism. A lot of joy instead.” “Machinal” is, “…off the Broadway radar but it is a landmark play in standard college curriculum, and we wanted to present it as a contribution to the Holy Cross anniversary,” adds Isses. “Helen Jones needs money and has expectations. Have things really changed?” Performances run Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 1-3 and Nov. 8-10, at 8 p.m. at O’Kane Hall, 2nd floor auditorium.

Sister act

CO-SPONSORED BY

PRESE

Jim Keogh

Here’s how movie people differ from you and me.

When they feel blue, they are given the keys to a posh house on an island in the Pacific Northwest, where the lush scenery helps heal their troubled souls. Time stands still for them on the island, with no clocks to punch or families to feed. They have romantic mishaps, and then pursue further healing by breaking out an endless wardrobe of fashionable cable-knit sweaters and doing outdoorsy island stuff — montage style of course, the better to accommodate all those changes of clothes. “Your Sister’s Sister” loyally follows the above rubric, and if the writing was half as clever and the performances any less excellent, the preciousness would have laid me low. But I bought into most of this independent film hook and line, if not quite sinker. Jack (Mark Duplass) is a Seattle guy suffering an emotional meltdown. The recent death of Jack’s brother has run headlong into his own untidy life, and at a memorial gathering he delivers a stunningly candid, borderline hostile, eulogy that dwells on his sibling’s flaws and unsettles the other mourners. One of them is Jack’s best friend, Iris (Emily Blunt), who offers him the use of her father’s lake house on a remote island so that he can pull himself together. Jack arrives at the house and is surprised to find Iris’ sister, Hannah, licking her wounds after an ugly breakup from her longtime lesbian partner. The two trade shots of tequila, exchange tales of woe, try to bolster each other’s spirits, and round out the night by engaging in a bout of sex that is as artless as it is desperate. They agree not to tell Iris when she arrives at the cabin the next day, but these things have a way of bubbling to the surface, and they grow further complicated by Iris’ deepening feelings for Jack. The charm of “Your Sister’s Sister” lies in the spitfire dialogue (much of it improvised) between Duplass and Rosemarie DeWitt. There’s a cut-to-thechase quality in their verbal parrying that’s refreshing for anyone who’s been exposed to too many romantic comedies built on misunderstandings and illexpressed desires. Here, Jack and Hannah say exactly what they mean and the consequences of those conversations are

The aforementioned brooding montages and a plot twist involving a condom are just a little too soapy. I’d hoped Shelton would have avoided the temptation to include the I’ve-been-such-a-fool moment, but no such luck. A minor point, yet one I found distracting: It’s explained that Iris and Hannah are only half-sisters, yet Blunt is quite British, and DeWitt is a native New Yorker. As good as they are, they never clicked for me as actual blood relations — they seem to be work-shopping material meant for two other actresses. They do look equally good in a sweater, though. “Your Sister’s Sister” will be shown at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday and Saturday, and at 1 and 2:50 p.m. on Sunday in the Jefferson Academic Center at Clark University.

More than a pizzeria Vincent Pepper

When you enter The Ugly Sub, leave all notions about conventional pizza shops at the door â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this is not your average pizzeria. From the wicker chair and couch set on one side of the cozy restaurant (formerly home to Andreaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) and the open kitchen that lets you watch as your food is prepared and the cheery owner who spins a tale of melding Dutch and Italian cuisine, this is much more than a place to grab a pizza or sub. My companion and I arrived with a healthy appetite late on a Sunday afternoon. The first hint that this was going to be a special visit came when we

were offered complimentary cinnamon rolls that are made with pizza dough. Sticky, gooey, perfect - we were told theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not always available. Hope that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the lucky ones on your visit. We enjoyed the chatter of workers behind the counter and couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to sink our teeth into a stone oven-baked pizza. The menu features a healthy offering of appetizers. We were tempted by the homemade Ugly Sticks, but having already downed several cinnamon rolls, we passed. We decided to satisfy our meat craving by ordering The Carnivore, a mix of sausage, meatball, pepperoni, ham and bacon. We chose a large pizza at $15.99. Being that â&#x20AC;&#x153;subâ&#x20AC;? is also in the name, we thought it only fair to try one out and opted to share the Ugly Steak with grilled peppers, onions and cheese. At my request, my companion agreed to forego the mushrooms. The menu offers only one size sub and our choice cost $7.99. I ordered a garden salad, which came with Greek house dressing ($4.99). Nothing fancy in the way of beverages â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I grabbed a Diet Coke from the cooler, my companion a Coke ($1.89 each). The pizza was beyond what we could have expected. A dusting of parmesan

cheese coated the meat, which was crispy, flavorful and plentiful. The sauce and cheese added to the flavor without overpowering, and there was no skimping on the toppings. Not to be outdone, the crust was the perfect complement. The owner, John, told us it is homemade every day. Without question, when it came to the sub, the bread was king. The steak and fillings were tasty to be sure, but the bread â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also homemade â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was delicious. Not doughy, it was crispy and fluffy at the same time. We got the story behind the name when John told us he used to make bread at home and his two sons would try their hand at it. They were â&#x20AC;&#x153;lazy,â&#x20AC;? he said, and the bread would always come bubbled and lumpy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hence, the Ugly in Ugly Sub. The salad was fairly standard, with mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions, but it gets major points for freshness. Before we had even gotten through our meal, we were treated to yet another free treat. All I can say is if you like cheese and garlic, you will love the cheese and garlic pinwheels we were lucky enough to sample. Like the cinnamon rolls, however, they are also not a regular menu item.

has been open six months. It was fairly quiet on our visit, although take-out customers trickled in throughout our stay. This was good for us, as we were able to listen to John tell us about how he has always cooked at home, bringing together the culinary greatness of Dutch and Italian cooking. He told us he will be adding soups to the menu soon. We especially enjoyed sitting on the wicker furniture after our meal; this gives the restaurant a homey feel that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find in most pizza shops. Another plus: from the tile walls to the floor, the Ugly Sub & Pizza Company was clean. Maybe it was a slow day, but something tells me John keeps a tidy shop. The only negative was the $9.99 charge on our receipt for the Ugly salad. We had ordered the $4.99 garden salad. The total tab for two was $40.59 - $5 more than it should have been. When you get two free dishes you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expecting, however, a small mistake can be forgiven. For both the quantity and quality, the bill was more than reasonable. If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been here yet, you owe it to yourself to become a customer.

Al Vuona n addition to famous crocodile hunters, Australia is also known for being one of the largest exporters of wine in the world. Wine is produced in nearly 50 designated wine regions, most of which are located in the southern, cooler parts of the country — that would include South Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Western Australia and Queensland. Each of these regions produces different wine varieties and styles that take advantage of their particular soil composition. The major grape varieties grown include Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Semillon, Pinot Noir, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc. Wines are often labeled with the name of their grape variety, which must constitute at least 85 percent of the wine. With that in mind, I think it’s fair to say that Shiraz, also known as Syrah, is the main attraction. Australian Shiraz can often be a big, powerful wine full of ripe fruit and intense concentration. That’s not to say other varietals aren’t worth seeking out because they certainly are. In fact Australia has something for everyone. Cabernet, Merlot and even Pinot Noir are terrific red wines. In the white category, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Semillon are outstanding. Australia’s wine industry is quite impressive in that it has established benchmarks for a number of varietals, by implementing modern wine-making techniques. This has resulted in an ever-growing worldwide demand for their wines. Of course the price points are varied. You can spend as little as $8 dollars for a good solid everyday wine or splurge and spend $50 on a big, brawny, age-worthy red. Either OF THE WEEK way you get a lot for your money. Some producers to watch for include, Jacobs Jim Barry: The Creek, Rosemount, Penfolds, and McWilliams. So Lodge Hill Shiraz what are you waiting for?

His daily trips to the playground bring him into the orbit of “The Monkeybar Mafia” - a collection of Stay-at-Home Moms bound together by their shared love of friends, family and a good Appletini. The Monkeybar Mafia is a humorous and poignant look at joblessness, restlessness and the paths we choose and those we leave behind as we travel this road of life.

Keep it Legal


Two minutes with...

Yes, his last name is pronounced just like “drown,” as in what happens if you can’t swim. Forty-three-year-old Derek Drowne says his name is mispronounced a lot. In one particular instance, it resulted in a very awkward moment (more on that later). So why is the Athol resident sitting down for a Two Minutes With … Worcester Mag? While he may live outside the city, Drowne works part-time at radio station WCRN on Franklin Street in Worcester. Plus, he’s an all-around cool guy with an interesting back-story and dreams of being a rock star. In addition to his gig as an engineer/producer in the WCRN studios, Drowne also plays acoustic guitar and is a correspondent with the Athol Daily News. He plays area bars and most recently showed up on TV’s “Community Auditions: Star of the Day,” where he got to strut his stuff and show off his chops with a Bon Jovi song. We don’t mind saying Drowne should give up his day job – he’s pretty good. How good? He won that day, beating out two others and will return soon to defend his “Star of the Day.” Throw in his battle to overcome a near lifelong addiction, his place in the New England Patriots’ Hall of Fame and the fact that he once caught a guitar pick spit at him by KISS’s Paul Stanley, and Drowne has had more than a few life experiences. We caught up with him at WCRN studios to learn a little more. How is life at WCRN? I love it. I like the camaraderie here. There are a lot of good people here, and they’re fun to work with. I don’t necessarily subscribe to everything that’s said here, but if you can tune it out, it’s great.

How long have you been playing guitar?

Oh, man, since I was 9? A good 30 some-odd years. I looked up to Rick Springfield as a kid, and I love KISS.

How does Rick Springfield inspire someone? I don’t know (laughs). My grandmother watched a soap opera with him in it (“General Hospital”), so I would watch it. It paid off because one of the guys on one of her soap operas later became a sort of music pen pal of mine. He put me in touch with a music director, Paul Antonelli. He won an Emmy for music on “All My Children.” He won the same year Susan Lucci finally won. He is also, and he may not want people to know this, but he was the main songwriter and keyboardist for (’80s band) Animotion.

You ended up singing on Springfield’s latest album, right? How did that happen? Well, he put out a video message to all his fans. He wanted them to sing back-up for a song he was doing, “I Hate Myself.” I contacted Matty Spindel, the producer of the album, “Songs for the End of the World,” and said I’d love to do it, but

I didn’t want to do a video. He sent me the lyrics, and I recorded an MP3 of backing tracks. So my name, along with 50 billion others, is on the album. It’s nice to be noticed.

Did you ever meet Rick Springfield? Oh yeah, several times. He’s one of the reasons you don’t put your idols on a pedestal. Oh? Why’s that? I probably shouldn’t say. Well, yeah, I can say it. I’m an alcoholic, but I’m sober. He’s an alcoholic and not anywhere near sober. I think he’s cleaning himself up now, though. How long have you been sober? Eightplus years. What made me? The state (laughs). The state took my license, and let’s just say they strongly suggested I go to rehab. I went for six months. It’s the best thing I ever did. I needed time to clean up. I was a raging alcoholic. My life has changed dramatically.

How? Well, I’m in the longest relationship I’ve ever been in, eight years. We have identical twins, 7-yearold boys. I joke with her that before I met her I had 276 very serious relationships over six months. I’m very conscious now about everything I put in my body. I have a clearer mind, a cleaner body.

Derek Drowne How do you handle playing out in bars when you can’t drink? Well, that’s the weird thing. I can. I think it’s just I see other people drinking and I say, “I don’t want to lose what I have, and I definitely don’t want to act the way I acted.”

You also are a reporter, and you’ve worked at other radio stations. What is the most memorable interview you’ve ever done? I did a show one night and Ted Kennedy was supposed to call in. This was at 99.9 in Gardner. I was thinking Ted Kennedy’s not going to call some place in Gardner. But he did. So we did an interview, and at the end I asked him to cut a liner for me (tape a promo for the radio station), and he asked me how to say my name. I said, “Drowne, as in you drown in water if you don’t know how to swim.” There was a long pause. I didn’t really notice it then, but later when I was editing it I noticed it was a very long pause. My friend was with me and he said, “That was Ted Kennedy!” I said, “Yeah?” He said, “You said drowning!” I said, “Yeah?” He said, “Chappaquiddick?” I was like, “Oh, shit!” I had never even thought about that, it’s just something I say to everybody because my name gets mispronounced a lot.

So, we hear you’re in the Patriots’ Hall of Fame? It was 2002, and I was working for a local newspaper. I went to go take pics of the Pats at City Hall after they won the Super Bowl. I was shooting 35mm film. I must have taken 350-500 shots that day. When you’re taking that many pics on film, you’re probably going to get about 20 that are usable and five that are really good. This one photo of Troy Brown, I got him holding up the Lombardi Trophy in the air and his reflection is looking symmetrically back at him. It never got used, so it sat in my closet for a decade. So on Aug. 20, my wife took me to a Patriots game and they announced that everyone

was invited to Troy Brown’s induction ceremony into the Patriots’ Hall of Fame. I told my wife I was going to mail my photo to Bob Kraft. I mailed it to his house, and I sent one to (Kraft’s son) Jonathan Kraft. I sent one to the stadium for good measure. Sept. 15 was the induction ceremony. I didn’t hear anything. On Sept. 10 I got this: (Drowne pulls out his cell phone and plays a voicemail message left by Stacy James, vice president of media relations for the New England Patriots, saying he loves the photo, and they would like to use it and give a copy to Troy Brown). I said I’d like to at least get something, and he sent me three VIP tickets to the induction. The entire time I didn’t see my photo, and I was pissed. Then we went up to the Putnam Club after for a meal with all these alumni, and I’m looking out the window onto the field and my friend says, “Look.” I turn around and my photo is mounted on a wall next to a glass case with Troy Brown’s Super Bowl uniform in it. It was blown up with my name on it. I was speechless for the second time that day.

What was the first time? I talked to Bob Kraft earlier in the day. I gave him a photo I had taken of him, and he said, “See how fat I used to be?” That was my conversation with Bob Kraft.

That is pretty awesome. So what’s next for you? Where do you want to go from here? McDonald’s (laughs loudly). No, I don’t know. I love what I’m doing, and I’d like to keep doing it.

So, seriously, what’s next? I want to be a rock star. I’d love to make music my full-time gig, so if you know if anybody’s hiring … -Walter Bird Jr. Have a story idea or comment? Call Walter at 508-749-3166, ext. 134, or email wbird@worcestermag.com NOVEMBER 1, 2012 • WORCESTERMAG.COM
