rianys De Jesus spent much of her childhood mired in depression and riddle with anxiety. Diagnosed at age 7 with chronic anxiety and severe depression, she took Prozac and saw therapists and counselors. Her mental illness was bad enough that, at times, she heard voices in head telling her to take her own life. While medicine and therapy did what they could, De Jesus credits the world of dance for truly healing her. Now 20, she has since started the Dance to Live Foundation, which holds its second annual fund raiser this month to raise money for other children suffering from mental illness to be able to take part in a performing art. This week, we look at what De Jesus has overcome, as well as at the numbers that show just how hard hit Latinos are by mental illness. For many, as it was for De Jesus, it truly is a long journey out of the darkness into the light.

{ citydesk } Mexican restaurant’s lease with city fills vacant space, prompts questions October 17-23, 2013 ■ Volume 39, Number 7

Walter Bird Jr.


ith $4.4 billion worth of property from which it receives no taxes, few would argue against Worcester’s need for more taxable income. Officials see the leasing of city-owned buildings that might otherwise go unused as one way to add to the bottom line and there are a number of examples where public interest has met private opportunity under City Manager Mike O’Brien, a big fan of public-private partnerships. The city has executed leases with businesses such as Luciano’s, Byblos and Vanasse Hangin Brustlin Inc. at Union Station, the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination at City Hall and the Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC), to name a few. One of the more recent leases is with Mezcal Tequila Cantina, the popular Shrewsbury Street eatery that is expected to open the doors on its new spot beneath the Major Taylor Boulevard Parking Garage in a matter of months. It is a deal that has the city putting up more than $500,000 in loans, including up to $150,000 for a commercial kitchen ventilation system that does not have to be paid back because the equipment would stay in the building should Mezcal leave anytime during its 10-year lease (there are two, five-year options). In return, Michael Covino and his family, who own Niche Hospitality Group, parent company to Mezcal and four other restaurants, are investing what he says will likely top $1 million when all is said and done. He says renovations in the

building are more than 50 percent complete and that an opening by the end of the year is a possibility. “Most people would like to say we’re not paying taxes,” Covino says of some naysayers


Mezcal will move from Shrewsbury St. to the former Sh-booms location on the first floor of the parking garage on Major Taylor Blvd.

– some of whom have voiced their criticism anonymously or through emails to Worcester Magazine. “We’re taking 11,455 square feet that generated zero revenue for years. We’re here and we intend to be here [for a long time]. We like to think we’re not a flash-inthe-pan company. We’re building this as a legacy and long-term project.” Mezcal will open up across the street from Uno Chicago Grill at 30 Major Taylor Boulevard in the basement of a city-owned parking garage. It fills the space formerly occupied by the Sh Booms, the once-popular nightclub that enjoyed its heyday on Main Street before moving to the garage to make way for a the new Worcester Courthouse. The city put the space out to bid three times with a Request for Proposals that identified the preferred use for the space as a restaurant. Covino bid all three times; the first two time did not bear fruit, once because of the anticipated high cost of construction and again because the city was offering just a 10year lease. The third time proved the charm, with Covino winning out over the owners of the former Tailgaters Grille in Clinton. Under the terms of the lease, which was signed June 14, Covino pays $8 per square foot the first year, with the cost increasing by 50 cents each subsequent year. The city agrees to pay up to $150,000 for a kitchen ventilation system, which the company does not have to repay. “It’s going to be a permanent structure,” Paul Morano, the city’s director of business

assistance, says of the reasoning behind paying for the system. In addition, the city will loan up to $250,000 to assist in the build-out and up to $140,000 to install grease traps and plumbing in the kitchen. Those loans must be repaid, although Covino admits he did not think the company should be required to pay back the $140,000 because, like the ventilation system, it will be a permanent part of the building. “We didn’t think we should have to [pay back the loan],” Covino says. “I understand why. We’re a private company. Usually we do private deals where I negotiate with a landlord who doesn’t usually put out an RFP. I can’t negotiate the same way with the public sector.” Addressing questions by some, including District 3 City Councilor George Russell, about some of the items being paid for up front by the city, including booths, tables,

chairs and bar stools, Covino notes equipment is all part of the lease that will be paid back to the city. Morano says the deal with Covino was made possible because of parking revenues generated through the city’s Off-Street Parking Board. He says the lease alone will generate about $1.2 million for the city over 10 years. The city will realize $59,407 in interest from the build-out loan and $46,347 from loan for the grease traps and plumbing in the kitchen. Adding in the meals tax over that 10-year period as well as an estimated 2,500 patrons per week, Morano says, “The long-term benefit is much greater than what we’re putting up front.” “We would like to see more restaurants downtown, more sit-down restaurants,” he adds. “As we add more students and office workers there’s more demand for restaurants.” While the arrangement with Mezcal is not the first reached by the city with a private business, some officials have regularly stood opposed to those deals. Russell, for example, was a voice of opposition when the city was going to buy equipment for a proposed brewery in Union Station. That deal eventually fell through. The councilor says he and his colleagues each received an anonymous email criticizing the city’s lease with Mezcal. “I don’t think we should be in the restaurant business,” Russell says. “It’s one thing to lease property out, but it’s another to go into the restaurant business. I don’t think we should be in the leasing-out-space business, either. We should be using city space for city uses.” Russell admitted he was waiting for further details about the deal with Mezcal from the city’s chief financial officer, which he expected this week. At-Large Councilor Rick Rushton, meanwhile, says the city has to find ways to generate tax revenue. “We’ve got spaces, we’ve got to maximize revenue,” he says. “Every city space equals no taxpayer dollars. We’ve got to maximize use. It’s about revenue.” Have a story tip or idea?

BUSTED A TICKED OFF CLERK: A man who allegedly robbed a Mini Mart Sunday, Oct. 13 may have gotten more than he bargained for when the clerk behind the counter chased after him, even though the suspect had handed him a note indicating he was carrying a gun. The incident took place around 9 a.m. at the store at the Edgemere Mini Mart at 734 Grafton St.. Police responding to the call were told by a dispatcher that witnesses had seen the clerk chasing after the suspect, who was later identified as 34-year-old Michael McIntyre, 6 Nancy Drive, Putnam, Conn. Officers ultimately captured McIntyre behind 12 End St. The clerk told police McIntyre entered the store, asked a question and left without buying anything. A short while later, McIntyre returned and handed the clerk a note demanding cash. The note also indicated he was armed with a gun. The clerk said McIntyre went behind the counter and took an undisclosed amount of cash. Police say they found evidence on McIntyre linking him to the crime. They also found two hypodermic needles, two orange pills (Buprenorphine Hydrochloride, a Class B substance), three orange capsule pills

(Gabapentin, a Class E substance) and a small, white powdery substance. McIntyre was charged with armed robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon (knife), intimidation of a witness, possession of a Class B substance, possession of a Class E substance, disturbing the peace, disorderly person and resisting arrest. No injuries were reported as a result of the incident. IPHONE, IFLED: Police on Thursday, Oct. 11 arrested Edgar Rivas after he allegedly stole a victim’s iPhone and fled the scene. Police who responded to an apartment on Charlton Street around 3:40 a.m. spotted a man in the driveway. The man ran when he saw the police and was found hiding under brush in a wooded area behind the building. Police found a pellet gun and mask near the 25-yearold Rivas. Police learned Rivas allegedly broke into the apartment through a window, held a gun to the female victim’s head and threatened her life. He allegedly stole her iPhone before taking off. Rivas was charged with armed home invasion and larceny over $250. He also had an outstanding warrant for his arrest.

SAY WHAT? Maybe it was a fear of what new owner John Henry

has in store for the bargaining chip, er, newspaper he just acquired. Maybe it was a slap at the Worcester daily they consider their ugly stepsister. Whatever the reasoning behind Boston Globe correspondent Lonnie Shekhtman’s recent story, “Worcester’s revival proving elusive,” city officials are hopping mad. City Manager Mike O’Brien believes some of the folks contacted for the story were misled about its intent. At-Large Councilor Konnie Lukes thinks it proves not enough is being done to market Worcester. “When we have to read this kind of headline, this is demoralizing and it’s not true, that’s the problem,” Lukes grouses. The story essentially paints the city as stuck in the mud and making little, if any progress in revitalizing its downtown. Lines like, “... when commuters disembark from trains at Union Station and cross a six-lane highway to reach downtown via Front Street, they are still greeted by the leftover portion of a rusting skeleton of a failed urban-renewal-era mall” certainly create a visual, even if it is completely one-sided and dismissive of all that has taken place while so many other cities, like Boston, came to a virtual construction standstill when the economy collapsed.


The panhandling ordinances Worcester enacted at the beginning of the year garnered attention throughout the state. Boston, the largest city in New England, gladly let Worcester take the lead on panhandling, no doubt willing to let city officials here play guinea pig when it came to dealing with a growing problem – begging on, and in some cases in, public streets. By putting in place the ordinances, the city empowered police to arrest panhandlers, if necessary, and they have. In most of the arrests, drugs were involved. Nonetheless, the ordinances riled civil rights activists and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed suit. More than just Boston is watching now. City Manager Mike O’Brien and Worcester are the main subjects of an Oct. 10 story in Time U.S. It cannot hearten the city manager and other city officials to have so many good things happening in Worcester, but see national attention focused on something it did almost a year ago. Still, the city had to have known someone would challenge the ordinances. Now that someone has, O’Brien acknowledges in the Time article the city could lose the case.

BACK FOR MOORE: If state Sen. Michael Moore isn’t running for his seat next year, it’s news to him. There has been some mention of Moore landing a job in the private sector and not running to retain his seat in 2014. Word was that, were that to happen, newly-elected state Rep. Dan Donahue would run for the Senate, which would leave the 16th Worcester District state representative’s seat wide open again. And that, of course, would only fuel speculation that ex-state Rep. John Fresolo, who resigned that seat earlier this year, would try to win it back. “I’m running for re-election,” Moore says. “I’m very happy where I am. Look at all the activities I have over the next several months. Someone started this rumor 30 days after I was re-elected last November. I assured everyone I was very happy serving the 2nd Worcester District.” As for talk of a possible challenge by Republican Carol Claros, Moore says, “It’s really irrelevant to me.” NO TALE OF THE TAPE: If, like us, you’re curious about just what is on that tape that allegedly captured an assistant district attorney and Worcester cop in the throes of passion, you’ll have to keep guessing, for now. Responding to a request for a copy of the tape by Worcester Magazine, Daniel Sullivan, general counsel for the Executive Office of the Trial Court, says the Court is not subject to the state’s Public Records Law. It is also exempt from the Freedom of Information Act, which is a federal statute and does not govern state agencies or state courts. “In addition,” Sullivan writes, “several courts have held that the Freedom of Information Act does not apply to state agencies.” As such, the Trial Court declined to comply with our request. We reminded the Trial Court that while it may not be required to release the tape it could certainly choose to do so, particularly as it allegedly depicts public employees. Alas, the plea was to no avail.

{ worcesteria } GOOD FRIENDS TO HAVE: Former

Lt. Gov. Tim Murray and his now ex-boss, Gov. Deval Patrick, put mor than $656,000 into a so-called segregated account from their last inauguration, according to a report by Jack Sullivan on The account is allowed under the law, thanks to the Ethics Reform Act of 2009. Money from the account can be used to pay legal fees, recount costs and inaugurations, Sullivan writes, and unlike regular campaign accounts there is no limit to what donors can contribute and no requirement on the part of the recipient to report when and how the cash was spent. Most of the donations to Patrick and Murray, according to Sullivan, came from large corporations whose businesses were regulated by executive department or business with the state.

TAKING OFFENSE WITH THE DEFENSE: Several area residents – some inside Worcester, others from beyond its boundaries – are outraged over the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) and want city officials to sign on to efforts backing the restoration of constitutional governance. Some opponents held a rally outside City Hall before Tuesday night’s City Council meeting. Inside, many of them delivered passionate testimony urging councilors to go on record as opposing the NDAA. The matter was ultimately referred to the Committee on Rules and Legislative Affairs, which is chaired by District 3 Councilor George Russell. COUNCILOR HART? We won’t say who, but one city councilor tells

SCAMMED: Unfortunately, whenever there are noble causes there

are also scam artists looking to take advantage of folks’ generosity. Police have been looking into a possible new scam involving people going door to door purporting to raise money for breast cancer research. Worcester Magazine received a complaint from one woman and police spokes gal Katie Daly says detectives have also received several complaints and were trying to determine their veracity. Police remind people to always verify the company or organization before making a donation and should not allow unexpected guests or solicitors into their homes. To report a possible scam or fraudulent activity, call the Worcester Police Detective Bureau at 508-799-8651.




Worcester Magazine he could actually see council meeting regular Jo Hart making a decent councilor. “She loves Worcester,” the councilor says of arguably the city’s harshest critic. Hart routinely mocks councilors in her time at the mic during the public comment portion of council meetings. She has sunk her teeth into the Worcester Regional Transit Authority (WRTA), which now operates out of a bus hub on Foster Street and has been plagued by problems since the new building opened earlier this year.


Assumption College is getting a new communications chief in Mike Guilfoyle, who previously worked in the Diocese as spokesman for Bishop Thomas Tobin. “Michael brings over 15 years of senior leadership experience in the communications field to Assumption marketing and communications efforts,” College President Francesco Cesareo says. “His professionalism, creativity and understanding of social media will serve the college well.” Guilfoyle will start Oct. 28 and replace Renee Buisson as executive director of communications.

Mark Stebbins, owner of XSS Hotels, laid the blame squarely at the feet of local unions for his failure to secure a City Council subcommittee’s approval for a Tax Increment Finance (TIF) deal to build a new hotel earlier this year. He was visibly angry and said he would “absolutely not” build the hotel in Worcester. He didn’t go as far as he could have. In Belleville, Ill. Dianne Rogge showed her frustration at being denied a TIF, literally. She hung a sign in the front window of her business, the Pour Haus restaurant, that read: “No TIF for us, Tks B’ville.” Maybe it’s best Stebbins didn’t do that. City officials have assessed more than $31,000 in fines to Rogge for refusing to remove the sign. She has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit.

A stitch in time

reak out the aprons, June! Home Ec is in the news! At least, it was dusted off by The Boston Sunday Globe last week. A course that has gone the way of the dinosaur, celibacy and table manners has been bandied about for resurrection, and I for one think it’s about time. I never took a Home Economics course in high school, nor did my daughter, but I had a stay-at-home mom, so I learned certain basic survival skills from watching her. Back in the days before MCAS, we had something called “electives,” which are a dim memory now, thanks to standardized testing being the Golden Yardstick of Education. To me, Home Ec was for stiffs – why would I take something so mundane when Mr. Hulbert was teaching Current Affairs? Irish History was way more interesting than sewing rickrack on place mat. Apparently, being a single, working mom, I failed to pass on these basic skills, resulting in a daughter who can’t sew a button back on to a blouse. I discovered this recently, when I was

helping her pack for a trip to Italy. “This dress has a seam open,” I mentioned as she was about to pack a floor-length garment for evening wear. “You’ll have to sew it.” “I can’t sew,” she replied. “What do you mean? Of course you can.” “Of course I can’t. I’ve never sewn anything in my life.” This was a real news flash. I never showed her how to thread a needle? “What have you done in the past when a button falls off?” I asked. “I give the thing to Goodwill. Or it stays in the back of my closet.” Luckily, a needle and thread came with some travel kit she purchased on her last vacation, and I was able to repair the dress for her, but not before we had a chat about her inability to sew – and other things. “You iron way better than I do,” she said. “I don’t crease stuff.” How could this be? One of my duties as a window dresser for Lerner Shops was to iron every scrap of material that went on a

mannequin. I ironed my dad’s handkerchiefs as soon as I could reach the ironing board. “You did it for us,” she told me. “You did everything.” “If we waited long enough, and could stand your nagging, eventually you cleaned our rooms, too.” I thought about this awhile. I remembered badgering my kids to clean their rooms; did they ever really do it? “No. You did,” she grinned. I starting thinking about it: who took out the trash? I did. Who cleaned the litter box? I did. Who did the laundry, folded the clean clothes, put them away? I did, I did, I did. Who washed the dishes? Who made the beds? Who vacuumed? Who cooked the meals? You guessed it. “If we procrastinated long enough, you couldn’t stand it and you’d say ‘Forget it! I’ll do it myself!’ Worked every time.” Maybe it was Super Single Mom Syndrome, thinking I could do everything for everyone. Maybe it was simply impatience. Or maybe it

was genetics. I distinctly remember my grandmother letting me sweep the floor as a child, only to have her take the broom from me, saying: “That’s nice, Doll, now let Nana show the right way.” Maybe in my head, the lesson learned was: Why bother? I thought about it again, when I was babysitting my grandson. I was trying to sweep up crushed Cheerios when he tugged at the broom. My first instinct was to pry his fingers from the handle, and then I remembered that his mother can’t sew. I gave him the broom. He almost poked out my eye, but that’s a small price to pay if someday he can crease his own pants.

From darkness to light: Dance lifts young woman from depression FOR LATINOS, MENTAL ILLNESS A PRESSING CONCERN Walter Bird Jr.

Arianys De Jesus smiles a lot when you talk to her. An engaging, seemingly happy 20-year-old who is a double major in Spanish and Health at Worcester State University, where she is a junior, De Jesus lives with her mother, stepfather and younger brother in Southbridge. There is very little to suggest she was ever anything but a confident, happy-go-lucky person. Her childhood could have been like just about any young girl’s – hanging out with friends, maybe doing sleepovers and gossiping and giggling about the cute boy in class. Instead, according to her mother, it was a nightmare brought on by a constant battle with depression that, at its worst, had De Jesus sometimes thinking she might be better off dead. “I kind of noticed she was always on the quiet side, crying a lot more than a normal kid,” Marilyn Rodriguez says of her daughter. “The age of 6 is when I talked to the doctor about her having a chemical imbalance. At 7 it got really severe.” “She was crying all the time, very irritable,” her mother adds, saying De Jesus often had difficulty sleeping.

De Jesus was diagnosed with severe depression and chronic anxiety when she was 7. She was prescribed Prozac and was seen regularly by a therapist and psychologist. It helped, but it did not eliminate all the problems De Jesus was dealing with. “There were times I would hear people talking in my head, saying really bad things to me, like take my life, just bad things,” she says. “I would sit in school and I would hear voices talking to me and I would feel like I was going crazy. They would say things like, ‘You’re ugly, you shouldn’t be living, you should kill yourself. You should take all those pills.’” De Jesus says her mother tells her she was always the shy one in the family, but it went beyond shyness. “I didn’t talk to anybody, even to my own parents,” De Jesus says. “I’d always keep to myself. I wouldn’t want to leave my room. I would go home and sit in my room and just cry. I didn’t want anybody near me, not my mom, not my dad.” Suicide, she acknowledges, was something she contemplated more than once. “I did think of it a lot of times,” she admits. “Did I try it? No. The main thing that popped up to me was overdosing on my medications. I never actually had the balls to do it, I guess, but it was in the back of my head every day growing up.” That time in her daughter’s life was, Rodriguez says, “a nightmare.” De Jesus has since come “out of the darkness and into the light,” according to her mother, and she is using one of the passions of her young life, dancing, to help others suffering from mental illness. In a few days, the effort she started, the Dance to Live Foundation, will host its second annual fund raiser. The event aims to raise money to provide opportunities for children ages 13-18 suffering from depression or some other mental illness to take part in a performing art, such as dancing. De Jesus credits dancing for healing her, but she is well aware that there are many others who are struggling with depression and other mental health afflictions.

A PROBLEM FOR LATINOS Although she may have felt it at the time, De Jesus was not alone – not just because thousands of Americans suffer from depression or some other mental illness every year. As a Latina, De Jesus was, according to statistics, already at a high risk of suffering from depression and anxiety. A Latino Community Mental Health Fact Sheet from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) notes women and Latinos are more likely to go through a depressive episode. Among Latinos, depression is more common for women (46 percent) than men (19.6 percent). In addition, the rate of attempted suicide among high-school age girls has been reported as one-and-a-half times more for Latino girls than that of AfricanAmerican or non-Hispanic white girls. “I don’t like the stats that show the disparity between ethnicities,” says Mirza Lugardo, director of Intensive Family Services at Harrington Memorial Hospital in Southbridge.

She cites one study that shows four of 10 Latino girls showed symptoms of depression. “It is incredible how the numbers continue to show that Latinos and African-Americans are worse off than their European counterparts.” The disparity could be even greater considering that, according to NAMI, fewer than one in 11 Latinos with mental health disorders reach out to a specialist or seek treatment. They are twice as likely to turn to other resources, such as their own personal physician or a member of the clergy. Part of it has to do with the lack of Spanish-speaking mental health professionals, but there are other reasons. “It has to do a lot with the stigma and the difficulty accepting you have a mental illness as well as limited services for Latinos,” Lugardo says. “The majority of times, [Latinos] say the cultural sensitivity -Mirza Lugardo, director of is an issue. They don’t feel welcome.” For Rodriguez, it took a while to accept Intensive Family Services

that her daughter had a mental illness. “I was in denial in the beginning because I was working in the mental health field and I didn’t want to admit my child had that,” she says. “It was just devastating to have this little girl … who was born with something wrong.” Sarai Rivera has worked in the mental health field for several years. As a clinical social worker she interacted with many Latino women and young girls. “When you look at Latino females, one of the issues is, you know when you’re dealing with diabetes or high blood pressure you have things that can trigger or exacerbate it,” says Rivera. “It’s the same thing with depression. You have things that can trigger or exacerbate it. When you look at the struggles of identity, specifically for Latino females, when you’re growing up in a Barbie culture where beauty is defined by a certain look and you look in a mirror and your hair is anything but straight. You look on TV and anyone that looks like me, that looks like a maid, is Latino. Those are some issues, on top of when you have depression … begin to exacerbate the problem all the more.” As for the reluctance among some Latinos to seek help dealing with mental health issues, Rivera points to the history of mental illness. “It was always seen as some sort of evil spirit or something you did wrong, something wrong with you,” she says. “Historically, the reaction to it has always been negative. So if I’m going to get locked up or ostracized who’s going to admit to that? Latinos are also very spiritual. A lot of time in my practice I would hear that they would seek guidance from a spiritual leader of some kind. I’m a believer in diving healing, don’t get me wrong, but I would always tell people, if you have a toothache most likely you’re going to call your dentist instead of your pastor, but yet we tend not to do that when we’re talking about mental illness.

De Jesus knows she will most likely always battle depression, but she is not letting it keep her down. She is turning to something she credits for empowering her to deal with her illness and start smiling again – something that was prescribed to her in addition to medicine. In addition to being put on Prozac when she was 7, De Jesus was encouraged to find an activity that would help her interact with other girls her age. Her mother decided to enroll her in dance classes. The way Lugardo recalls it, De Jesus did not immediately take to the new endeavor. “In the beginning she sat in the corner, she resisted the dance,” Lugardo says. “She was not just saying, ‘Oh, great.’ She couldn’t see that she could really do it. Her mother would not give up.” De Jesus actually started dancing at 4, but her mother had to take her out of the classes because of her struggles. Eventually, De Jesus took to it – big time. By the age of 10, De Jesus was taking part in dance recitals and dance competitions. She had finally found something to draw her out of her room. “My mom said I went from living in a dark hole to living in the light,” says De Jesus, who performs several types of dance, including jazz, tap and ballet. Her therapists apparently saw the same thing. “They saw a big improvement in my life, within eight to nine months, where I was smiling more and talking more, as opposed to to going home, into my room and closing the door,” De Jesus says. By the time she turned 15, she was off Prozac. She started teaching dance, something she still does. She is not immune to depression, especially when there are setbacks, such as in August when the dance studio where she was teaching, Salsa Storm on Harriston Street in Worcester, closed. She had been going there for the past four-plus years. “It really hit me,” De Jesus says, adding she now attends a dance studio in Connecticut.

{ coverstory } During the dark time, Rodriguez noticed her daughter’s attitude and outlook changed whenever she danced. “Dance transformed that little sad girl into a happy girl,” she says. “I guess she was able to express a lot of emotion through dance. I remember her telling me at one point, ‘Mom, I don’t hear voices anymore. I’m not sad.’” When a depressive episode hits now, Rodriguez says, her daughter knows how to escape it. While dancing and other outlets may not be a cure-all for mental illness, Lugardo believes they are invaluable. Her practice, in fact, incorporates alternative methods of treating mental health issues. She says the state Department of Mental Health (DMH) has granted her program, which offers alternative forms of therapy, a 10-year, $6-million contract. “We do talk therapy,” Lugardo says, “but also, like in the summer we will take kids to a horse farm in Rutland, where they learn to groom and care for the horses. All of that really addresses many of their symptoms.” There is also an after-school program that sometimes takes kids to a local nursing home to deliver Valentines or pumpkins, something they will do this month. “We know, to some kids, that is even more significant than sit-down therapy, although I’m not saying that is not important,” Lugardo says. “Through art or any type of culture, children can communicate in a way they never thought they could.”

RECOGNIZING THE SYMPTOMS The characteristics De Jesus displayed when she was younger are typical of children who suffer depression, according to Lugardo. “In children and teens they become very irritable, they hate everything,” she says. “Also, they become indifferent to others. They lose interest in activities they used to enjoy.” Like De Jesus, youngsters with depression tend to have difficulty falling to sleep. It is also not unusual for kids to suffer from both anxiety and depression, two things that tend to walk hand in hand, Lugardo says. “Some people think if you’re anxious, you can’t be depressed,” she says. “That’s not the case.” As for why young people might be so susceptible to mental illness, Dr. Barry Feldman says it is important to remember that adolescence technically lasts until age 24. They can suffer from youth congitive skill deficits, otherwise known as impulsive behavior. “You have young people trying to deal with stress in their lives, such as conflicts at home, break-ups, problems in schools, that in many cases haven’t learned some of the behavior of how to deal with that,” says Feldman, who serves as director of Psychiatry Programs in Public Safety and is an assistant professor of psychiatry at UMass Medical School. “That’s part of the equation. There are many factors that go into mental illness.”


Roughly 20 percent of all teens will experience depression before adulthood

Between 10-15 percent of teens have some symptoms of depression at any one time

About 5 percent of teens are suffering from major depression at any one time

As many as 8.3 percent of teens suffer depression for at least one year at a time, much higher than the general population, 5.3 percentage

Most teens with depression will suffer from more than one episode

15 percent of teens with depression eventually develop bipolar disorder

{ coverstory } When dealing with young people dealing with mental health issues, Feldman says, it is important to provide buffers or protective factors and a connection, such as contact with a caring adult. “Positive self esteem or coping skills are buffers,� Feldman says. De Jesus, he notes, seems to have found her buffer. “The project she’s involved in, channeling energy and efforts is great and works for her. Exercise is very helpful in terms of coping with depression. Maybe she’ll enlist participation for other kids.�

The Dance to Live Foundation is in its second year of a mission that seeks to facilitate the access for young people to performing arts activities in an attempt to combat depression and teen suicide. Scholarships will be awarded for activities such as dance, art, music, drawing, martial arts, even sports. Its second annual fund raiser, the Green Carpet Affair, will be held Saturday, Oct. 19, from 7 p.m. to midnight, at the Renaissance Function Hall, 1050 Southbridge St., Worcester. The cost is $25 per person, $40 per couple. The night will feature a welcome reception, buffet dinner, a keynote address from Lugardo and, of course, music and dance performances. De Jesus is hopeful that enough money will be raised to allow the group to start accepting scholarship applicants in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The ďŹ rst event was amazing,â&#x20AC;?

10 years of Rock & Shock Joshua Lyford Rock and Shock has become a standout event for Worcester and with good reason – the event consistently brings out major players in the world of horror. Couple this with awesome screenings, meet and greets, surprises and great bands, and you have the recipe for a fantastic time for both horror aficionados and casual fans. On Oct. 18-20, Worcester will open itself up for yet another

wild ride. This year marks the 10th anniversary of Rock and Shock and the fall institution is pulling out all the stops. If you have an interest in horror, music, or both, there is something here for you. With actors, directors, writers and producers meeting with fans at Worcester’s DCU Center and Palladium, downtown will once again turn into an eerily good time. Things will kick off at 5 p.m Friday, Oct. 18 and run until 5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20. Fans will have a hard time soaking everything

in given the sheer magnitude of the event. Guests include Robert Englund (“Nightmare on Elm Street,” “Wishmaster”), Robert Patrick (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “X-Files,” “True Blood”), Michael Rooker (“The Walking Dead,” “Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer,” “Tombstone,” “Mallrats”), Scott Wilson (“The Walking Dead,” “In Cold Blood,” “The Exorcist 3”), Gunnar Hansen (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” “Chainsaw Sally,” “Mosquito”), Adam Green, Laura Ortiz and Corri English of “Holliston,” Dee Snider (Twisted Sister, “Strangeland”) Jason Mewes and Brian O’Halloran (“Clerks,” “Mallrats,” “Dogma”), Jordan Ladd (“Cabin Fever,” “Death Proof,” “Hostel 2”), Twiggy Ramirez (NIN, Marilyn Manson), Kane Hodder (“Friday the 13th 7-10”), William Forsythe (“The Devil’s Rejects,” “Halloween”), Dave Sheridan (“The Devil’s Rejects,” “Scary Movie”), Sid Haig (“House of 1000 Corpses,” “The Devil’s Rejects”) and Hanna Hall (“Halloween,” “The Virgin Suicides”). Rock and Shock will kick off the musical portion of the event with a preshow Thursday, Oct. 17 at the Palladium featuring Between the Buried and Me, The Faceless, The Contortionist and The Safety Fire. Friday night there will be a screening of Jay and Silent Bob’s “Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.” Saturday night the legendary Danzig will be celebrating 25 years of music and performing with Doyle from The Misfits. Otep, Butcher Babies, Texas Hippie Coalition and A Pale Horse Named Death will be supporting. On Sunday, Oct. 20 Twiztid will kick off their Fright Fest Tour with Blaze, The Roc, Aqualeo, Funny People making Funna People, Fury, Masstapeace and more.

Rock and Shock gets the guests almost as excited as the fans, as the evening marks an opportunity for them to connect one on one. Actor Michael Rooker, who is perhaps best known these days for his role as Merle Dixon from AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” appreciates the time spent with fans and is himself a fan of horror. He says that festivals are an enjoyable experience. “do enjoy them, obviously, as I keep coming back for more,” Rooker says. “It always amazes me the amount of love the fans have to give and the excitement that unfolds at the conventions. I always have a great time. Horror fans are great, they’re very loyal and always enthusiastic in a very cool way. I do count myself as a horror fan. My personal favorite is ‘Night of the Living Dead.’” Jason Mewes is an actor, producer and all-around hilarious guy to be around. He is often identified as his character, Jay, the more loquacious half of hilarious on-screen duo Jay and Silent Bob, who have starred in classics like “Clerks,” “Mallrats,” “Dogma” and “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.” He will be at Rock and Shock promoting his new animated feature, “Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.”

“Rock and shock is definitely my favorite,” Mewes says. “I love this. We’ve been touring with this movie and I get to sit and listen and watch people’s reaction to the movie and do the Q&A and then afterward I go out and hang out with everybody and take pictures and say what’s up. You meet some of the most interesting people.” Mewes is a fan of horror films himself and counts “Blood Beach” and the “Saw” series among his favorites. “I am definitely a horror fan, but I am not as hardcore as some of the fans that go to the shows,” he says. “You’ll see some people that drive three or four hours to different shows with different costumes each time.” So do yourself a favor and check out the Rock and Shock 10th anniversary show for yourself at the DCU Center and Palladium, Friday Oct. 18 through Sunday, Oct. 20. You can pick up tickets in advance at www. and be sure to heed the wise words of Jason Mewes: “Come out, you will definitely enjoy yourselves.”

The story of area artist Stephen Knapp’s revolutionary lightpaintings (distinct from photographic light painting), is a tale about risk, exploration and the artist’s long journey. Knapp is known locally for the eight glass doors at the Worcester Public Library, added during the building’s refurbishing in the early 1990s, and worldwide for some of the world’s largest glass-glazed ceramic murals and for his kaleidoscopic “lightpaintings,” that are not paintings at all, but spectral flourishes of refracted light illuminated remarkably by a single light source. Knapp’s work includes permanent exhibits in Cincinnati, Ohio and Japan, and a temporary exhibit currently on display at The Alexandria Museum of Art in Alexandria, La., where it will remain through November, before moving to Lakeland, Fla. Knapp never set out to be a lightpainter. That discovery occurred unwittingly when he picked up a camera in college. “At Hamilton [College, in Clinton, NY],” Knapp says, “I picked up a camera and said, ‘Oh, wow!’ I never knew that I could do something creative until I picked up a camera for the first time, and it absolutely blew me away.” Knapp says that his experiences at the liberal arts college were “way way important” in precipitating his discovery. “I tell most young people I talk to that want to make a living in the arts to get a good liberal arts degree first, because you learn to think differently, if you take advantage of it. And that ability to look at things differently, to come at it from different perspectives, is why I am where I am today.” “The people that end up leading giant companies, and most endeavors really, tend to be people who can think laterally and who have a good grasp of a lot of different areas.” He also credits the zeitgeist of the time

period. “I was drinking the Kool Aid of the ‘60s, which said you could do anything you wanted,” he says, “and by the time I realized how difficult it was to lead a creative life I was just too stubborn to stop.” And the rest, as they say…took decades of tireless exploration and risk-taking. The initial gambit to pursue art out of college, though, didn’t cause Knapp a moment of doubt. “That was easy. I worked for a large corporation for a couple years and it taught me that I never wanted to do that again.” Though Knapp’s early artistic forays were in photography, his first lark was in writing. “I dragged my young bride screaming off to Nova Scotia shortly after we got married to write the great American novel,” he says. “And we were up there for about 10 months and I’ve got three unpublished novels.” The manuscripts remain in Knapp’s attic today. Despite his failure to hit pay dirt, he sees the jaunt as meaningful, just the same. “It was really just an incredible break from that tradition of going to high school, going to college, getting a job,” he says. “There’s something about those 10 months, [it] was a magical thing to do and in the ‘60s we just kind of expected we’d do things like that. It was the fall of ’71 when I last worked for somebody else.” When he returned to the States, Knapp started small, selling photographic prints in increasing sizes and prices. Enjoying “working in scale,” he was drawn to larger pieces and eventually to installations, which led to edged metal walls. “I did what was probably, in 1984, the largest photo-edged metal wall in the country, in Cincinnati, a 14-foot by 72-foot installation,” he says. “And that same year or continued on page 20

DS: â&#x20AC;&#x153;My familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s started to see things differently. Their personal lives are the socalled pieces of scrap I so casually pick up, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sick of it.

continued from page 18 the next year, I did what was, I think, one of the largest glass glazed-ceramic murals in the world, in Japan.â&#x20AC;? These works were risky for the young artist, as he had no training in the medium. In fact, no one did, because the medium didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m endlessly curious,â&#x20AC;? he says. It is said that curiosity killed the cat, and it must have struck fear in Knappâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart, too, as untested media, especially on a large scale, meant working in the unknown, for great periods of time, and limited remuneration. Knapp says that these circumstances played to his advantage, however, as he saw himself as â&#x20AC;&#x153;willing to take out huge chunks of time and invest in myself and invest in learning.â&#x20AC;? Though professional commissions carry guarantees that minimize some elements of artistic risk associated with the independent artist, Knapp says that a lot of doubt remains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to be willing to convince them and yourself that you can do the work, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And often the amount of pay you get early on to do something that big is miniscule compared to the time involved.â&#x20AC;? The risks, he says, paid off in other ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the ability to get some incredibly big things done that gave me the chance to move on and build a name,â&#x20AC;? he says.

â&#x20AC;˘ OCTOBER 17, 2013

Knappâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arrival at his lightpaintings came about in the early 1990s, after he had completed work on the Worcester Public Library glass doors. He says that someone who saw his edged-metal and glass-metal walls, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like you to do this large glass project.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Knapp was surprised, because he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really worked in glass â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least not in the way they intended. So, he asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why me?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? and they said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2122;We like the way you

think, the way you solve problems, and how you create things,â&#x20AC;? hearkening back to his liberal arts training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, I started working in kiln-formed glass,â&#x20AC;?

he says. And in late 1993 Chicagoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worldrenowned Merchandise Mart (the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest commercial building and wholesale design center) asked Knapp to create an exhibit to go along with a talk on architectural art glass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;NeoCon is the biggest show in the world for architectural designers. And I was told that, if you do that, do it properly.â&#x20AC;? The Mart offered Knapp a 5,000-square-foot showroom for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;huge exhibit that stayed up for a full year in The Mart.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I ďŹ lled it with glass and steel sculpture and architectural walls, like the Worcester Public Library [doors].â&#x20AC;? Initially fearing that he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ ll the exhibit with just his own work, Knapp started looking at different types of materials and found acrylic glass, which, he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the basis of lightpaintings.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We ended up doing the whole exhibit with glass and steel sculpture and furniture and art glass walls and really cool different things,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I did a tiny dichroic piece in the corner.â&#x20AC;? Since then, Knapp has created lightpaintings for nearly 40 private commissions throughout the United States, including The Allmerica Building on Lincoln Street, in Worcester, and has displayed his works in innumerable group and solo exhibits throughout the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People tell me all the time that it takes a lot of guts to go through life doing this for a living. And I tell people that I was always more afraid of not doing it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somebody told me years ago that I would be very wealthy if I stuck with something and did it over and over again, but I also think I wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been brain dead if I had done that.â&#x20AC;? But since writing about art is like dancing about architecture (as they say!), drop this and visit to see the artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work.

Evil by any other name

{ film }

By Jim Keogh Hannah Arendt was a philosopher and political theorist who covered the 1961 trial of the notorious Nazi Adolph Eichmann and produced a memorable piece in The New Yorker declaring that Eichmann was no monster. Instead, she argued, he was a bureaucrat, a nobody, a middleman mindlessly following his orders that the cattle cars transporting Jews to the ovens be full and on time. His very ordinariness was what made him dangerous and opened the possibility that many others put in his position would commit similarly horrific acts. Guilty? Yes. Deserving of being hanged? Absolutely. Satan on earth? Not so much. Arendt’s stance regarding the “banality of evil,” as well as her contention that Jewish leaders submitted too readily to the Nazis, angered and alienated US Jewish intellectuals, costing her friendships and threatening her job as a professor. She was accused of being unsympathetic to the victims of the Holocaust and a traitor to Israel, despite her protestations that she agreed with the verdict. The film “Hannah Arendt” nicely captures the texture and tenor of the controversy stirred up by this German American who herself had done time in a detention camp. As portrayed by Barbara Sukowa, Hannah is baffled by the fuss, insisting that the man she saw in the courtroom could, under different circumstances, have been the guy who does your taxes. This is driven home by the real footage of Eichmann on trial in Israel; a slender, balding, bespectacled man in defensive posture who was either a masterful liar or willingly oblivious.

Hannah is faithfully supported by her loving husband, Heinrich (Axel Milberg), and good friend, the ever-buoyant novelist Mary McCarthy (Janet McTeer), but her editors at The New Yorker knew a storm was brewing from the moment they read her first draft. One of Hannah’s arguments rings particularly true when considered in a contemporary light. Trying to understand evil, she contends, is not the same as forgiving it. In post9/11 society, the same charge is often levied against anyone wishing to know deeper truths about why terrorists attack by those who believe that motive is inconsequential — as though knowing more about the roots of your enemy’s behavior somehow empowers him. Sukowa brings a distinct balance of strength and delicacy to Hannah, though I prefer her performance when she’s speaking in her native German rather than in English because she sounds eerily like Madeline Kahn’s Lili Von Shtupp from “Blazing Saddles.” When the movie moves away from Sukowa and into flashbacks, it weakens — her long-ago romance with her college mentor is thinly explored and wastes too much real estate. Hannah is at her best in front of a classroom, railing away, certain about her beliefs but expecting a fight from those who are just as certain about theirs. Hannah Arendt will be shown at 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Saturday, and at 1 and 3:15 p.m. Sunday in the Jefferson Academic Center at Clark University. The film is part of the Cinema 320 series.

A Capsule from Hollywood

“Captain Phillips” is director Paul Greengrass’ second film depicting an encounter between hijackers and their captives (the other is “United 93”), and he again proves masterful at depicting physical and emotional confrontation in a confined space. His film expands on the true narrative of the 2009 invasion of the Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates, and their kidnapping of the captain, Richard Phillips, leading to a tense standoff with the US Navy. It’s thrilling and exhausting. Once you get past his pahk-the-cah accent, Tom Hanks is splendid as Phillips — quietly heroic, utterly decent, in short, so very, very Tom Hanks. He’s matched by Arkhad Abdi, a rookie actor who is a revelation as the glowering leader of the desperate pirates. Expect multiple Oscar nominations from this one.

VALUE ★★★★

42 West Boylston St., West Boylston • 508-835-4722 •

Draught House, a welcome addition to West Boylston mainstay By Michael Brazell A mainstay of the Worcester-area dining scene has been the Manor Restaurant, which has served as a restaurant and function space in West Boylston for decades. Despite always having good food and decent prices, the restaurant was more commonly though of as a place to take the grandparents for an early bird special than it was for a night out for dinner and drinks. Seeking to change this image, the establishment at 42 West Boylston St. in West Boylston has broken off into two entities under one roof, the Manor Banquet Facility, and a newly renovated bar and grill called The Draught House, featuring a refreshed menu and some 30-beers on draught. In just a few short months, The Draught House has redefined itself as a great alternative for Worcester-area diners looking to get dinner and drinks on the route less traveled. Still situated on Route 12, just a mile from the Worcester/West Boylston line, the dining room of The Draught House surprises guests with a huge, horseshoe-shaped bar, with over two dozen taps taking center stage. Tables, booths and high-tops make a semicircle around the bar, with flat-screens on nearly every wall. Dining on a Friday night at about 8 p.m., co-diner, Markos, and I were stunned

to be quoted a 40-minute wait to sit down, but were lucky to grab two stools at the bar in about 10 minutes. Immediately greeted by our bartender Nikki, we were eager to dive into a couple of 20-ounce beers and the revitalized menu. We started with an order of buffalo chicken tenders (opting for “medium” on the spice rating), roughly six large and meaty boneless wings, doused in a tangy and hot buffalo sauce, served aside the regular assortment of vegetables and a ramekin of house-made bleu cheese, which was more sweet than expected with hints of dill. Off the bar menu, this order of wings was only $4 and was more than enough for two of us. The wings are one of many items on a paired-down bar menu packed with wallet-friendly dinner and drink specials, that is seemingly offered throughout the entire dining room. After the surprisingly spicy buffalo wings, we cleansed our palettes with complimentary olive bread, served alongside a dish of oil and feta cheese – a favorite of the Manor Restaurant that they thankfully chose to keep. Though we were tempted by the low prices on the bar menu, Markos and I ordered off the dinner menu, a three-page menu that features everything from seafood and burgers to personal pizzas and traditional Greek meals. Having filled up on wings and olive bread, Markos opted for the Caprese Panini ($10), an excellent sandwich doused in olive oil, with warm slices of thick tomatoes and huge chunks of fresh mozzarella cheese, pressed

between two pieces of glazed ciabatta bread. Though I had my eye on a couple of the Draught House’s burgers and a Mediterranean flatbread pizza that I had enjoyed before, I opted for the dinner special, Lobster Capelline ($18). The Draught House continues to be a standard bearer for excellent, reasonablypriced seafood in the Worcester area. Large chunks of grilled lobster tail and claw were the focus of this dish, as diced tomatoes, roasted red peppers and basil were sauteed in


an excellent garlic Parmesan sauce, tossed in linguine. Both Markos and I were impressed by the sheer mass of lobster included in a sub-$20 dish. Washed down with a cold glass of Boulevard’s Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, an earthy and refreshing saison and the best beer on tap, the meal was perfect. Despite a terrific meal at a total bargain (about $45 for drinks, apps, and entrees), the Draught House is not without growing pains. Would-be diners were perturbed as some names were skipped over or forgotten in the waiting room (a buzzer system would be a welcome addition), and the deflating singer/ songwriter was too downbeat for music on a Saturday night. While it’s nice to see local establishments feature local musicians, “Harry Chapin” and “America” covers might be more fitting for weekday nights. Nevertheless, the Draught House impressed us with its new menu, great prices, and revitalized bar, offering a great alternative for Worcester diners looking for dinner and drinks.

Raising a glass to wine everywhere


OF THE WEEK Mirassou Riesling, California $ 12

A Great Pair of Legs By: Al Vuona

Cameron Diaz, Katy Perry and Pamela Anderson all have one thing in common: great legs. What does this have to do with wine you ask? Every now and then you will notice a wine lover swirling their glass, raise it towards the light and watch for the wine’s legs to appear. These so called legs, or tear drops as the French refer to them, and are the streaks of wine forming on the side of the wine glass. The legs were once thought to be associated with a wine’s quality (the more legs, the higher the quality). However, as it turns out this phenomenon has more to do with science than with quality. You see, wine is a mixture of alcohol and water, the alcohol has a faster evaporation rate and a lower surface tension than water, effectively forcing the alcohol to evaporate at a faster rate. This dynamic allows the water’s surface tension and concentration to increase, pushing the legs up the glass until the surface tension pushes the water into beads. Finally, gravity wins the battle and forces the liquid to tear down the glass in the form of streaks or, as it’s commonly referred to as, its legs. Sorry to disappoint all you wine lovers who, like myself, thought we had a lock on this one. Unfortunately, science is the clear winner here. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying a great bottle. You can still pour your favorite wine and then patiently watch as the liquid slowly coats the inside of the glass with a viscous consistency. This phenomenon is known as the Gibbs-Marangoni effect. It is named after two physicists, Italian Carlo Marangoni and American Josiah Gibbs. Just because the quality myth has been debunked is no reason to get upset. Look at it this way: In the end you still get to drink all the wine you want while at the same time enjoying some impressive legs. Now that’s what I call a great pair.

Fun By The Numbers Like puzzles? Then you’ll love sudoku. This mind-bending puzzle will have you hooked from the moment you square off, so sharpen your pencil and put your sudoku savvy to the test!

Here’s How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken down into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle! O C T O B E R 1 7, 2 0 1 3 • W O R C E S T E R M A G A Z I N E . C O M

Two minutes with...

Bob Ravenelle

As the Dean of Students at Assumption College, the 50-yearold Bob Ravenelle has a big hand in shaping the overall life of students as they transition from teens to young adults. As a brother, he wanted to have an even bigger hand in helping Rene Ravenelle, five years Bob’s senior, when his older sibling needed a new kidney. As it turns out they were not a match, but through what’s called a kidney paired donation system, Bob was able to help out someone else. Rene received the kidney he so desperately needed as well, even if it wasn’t exactly how Bob had planned it. Now, Bob is living with one kidney and preparing to run his first marathon with a new outlook on life. Tell us about your brother. My brother, Rene, is five years older than I am. We were always together, always playing sports together. We looked very similar and sounded very similar. He’s also one of my brothers that lives close by, so we’ve been able to stay very close. When I was an undergraduate here at Assumption, Rene ended up with testicular cancer. He went through that whole process of radiation and chemotherapy. His treatment caused side effects with his kidneys. We started exploring opportunities back in the early 2000s when his kidneys started to fail. We decided that we needed to look at the option of a kidney transplant in 2007.

You volunteered to participate in a kidney paired donation system. What is that? It’s an outstanding program. I was scheduled to donate to my brother in 2006. I got a call confirming that I needed to be at the hospital the next morning with nothing to drink after midnight. Fifteen minutes later, I got a call saying the surgery was off. When the serum cross match came back it was found that Rene would have rejected my kidney. Needless to say, that was kind of emotional. When we originally had gone in they had mentioned this program, NEPKE, New England Program Kidney Exchange, and gave us a little pamphlet on it. You go into the system as a pair, a recipient and a donor. I told Rene, we should sign up. At the time when we signed up I agreed to donate to someone and their donor would donate to Rene. In our case we had an altruistic donor. They had been

scheduled to give to someone, but their kidney was not compatible with the recipient. They had already gone through all the testing and decided they still wanted to give their kidney, which was wonderful. NEPKE took all their information and ran it through the process and found a recipient. That recipient’s mother was set to donate her kidney and she matched my brother’s. For me there wasn’t another peer because we started with an altruistic donor, so they matched me with someone who was on the waiting list. We ended up with six people involved, three recipients and three donors. All of the surgeries had to happen at the same time. My brother was at Beth Israel receiving the kidney from his donor and four of us were at Mass General going through surgery. The altruistic donor was actually right across from me. As we were in surgery prep I could hear her talking. It was kind of neat.

What were your risks after donating a kidney? Did you ever have second thoughts? The risks are minimal, but that goes to a person’s health. Anytime you go into surgery, clearly there is a risk, but I will say that I’ve found that the physicians and their staff involved in this are just so committed, so aware of and so appreciative of the donors. They really treat you like gold. From my standpoint I’m a healthy person; this happened six years ago and I haven’t had any repercussions. I’d have been back at work in two weeks if my wife had let me.(I’ve had) no second thoughts. I had shoulder surgery before I donated my kidney. If I could, I’d

STEVEN KING give another kidney tomorrow before going through shoulder surgery. To me it was a wonderful experience.

How has this experience changed you, besides being one kidney short? I’m more involved in the New England Organ Bank. Through that I’ve met some really phenomenal people, both living donors and recipients. I have a greater appreciation for the good fortune that I’ve had. It’s given me a much bigger appreciation for life.

You’re training for your first marathon at 50 to raise funds and awareness for the New England Organ bank. How’s that going? Have you always been a runner? It’s going great. I originally thought about running a marathon when I turned 40 and that came and went. Through this experience I feel like I’ve been graced with good health and I wanted to run a marathon. Training has gone better than expected. You get stronger and you start believing that you can do it. The last time I ran regularly was in college and that was when Rene was going through his challenges with testicular cancer; at the time that was my outlet.

You’re running in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington D.C. Did you choose this race for a reason? My colleague had run it two years ago for the Diabetes Foundation. I had looked into the course, it’s relatively flat and decided it was a good first marathon. I’m also excited to run around our nation’s capital and I know I’ll be running with a lot of men

and women who are serving our country.

How much money have you raised so far? I haven’t raised as much as I’d like to. I’ve raised over $1,000. My goal is $5,000. I’ve always had a hard time raising money, it’s hard asking. I love giving money, but raising it is a little more difficult. I’m hopeful I’ll reach my goal and maybe surpass it. How is Rene doing? He’s doing pretty well. I think anyone who has gone through a transplant is doing a whole lot better than when their kidneys weren’t functioning. He’s feeling a whole lot better than he was six years ago. The reality is that it is likely that he will need another kidney down the road. The young man that I donated to was on his third kidney. If people would like to donate to your cause how can they do that? I do have a giving web site that the New England Organ Bank has set up, bobravenelle. The most important part of this is for people to sign up to become organ donors. There are a lot of people out there waiting for kidneys and other organs. There are over 100,000 people waiting for organ transplants. I want people to contribute, but I also want people to sign up and for those who are interested in becoming a living donor, I highly recommend that as well.
