WOO-TOWN INDE X WooTown Index: An itemized list of Worcester’s ups and downs this week.

{ citydesk }

July 12 -18, 2012 ■ Volume 37, Number 45

Putting the public back into public health Worcester celebrates Independence Day violently with the city’s seventh homicide of the year during the fireworks and shots fired on Berkley Street. The next day a solitary hiker falls 80 feet to his death at Purgatory Chasm. Shootings aside, Worcester police deal with some not so bright law breakers. A man’s attempt to rob a convenience store ends when the clerk throws hot tea at him (the perp then went on to rob a gas station), and police have to deal with a drunk and drugged driver who attacks responding officers after he crashes his car on Stafford Street. Worcester, these are your petty criminals. GOP presidential candidate and Senator Scott Brown disagree over whether or not “ObamaCare” is a tax, with Romney saying it is and Brown saying it’s not, all because if it is then they both voted to raise taxes in Massachusetts with the passage of “RomneyCare.” Who cares about real talk on important issues when you can hide behind semantics instead, right? Summer Nationals comes to town with the same anticipation of seeing cool cars, smoky burnouts and levels of scorn from people who have to hear the noise, smell the chemicals and shut down their businesses for the weekend. If you like that, then you enjoyed it. If you don’t, then you didn’t. National Transportation Bill passes, allowing for bridge and intersection repairs in Worcester to get the go-ahead. Worcester State University hosts the 2012 African Cultural Community Summit with members of the Worcester Police Department, City of Worcester’s Human Rights Office, District Attorney’s Office and clergy to help African immigrants adjust to life here. Greater Worcester Community Foundation awarded an $8,000 grant to First Night Worcester for next year (bringing its total contribution to $170,000 since 1998). So, we’re expecting a helluva good December 31 this year. Forbes Magazine ranks the Worcester metro area the 66th best place for businesses and careers and 73rd in terms of job growth. The area ranks 186th in the cost of doing business, ahead of Boston and Cambridge.

he recent upholding of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, has fanned controversy over who should pay for those who cannot afford health care and whether it is constitutional for the government to mandate coverage for everyone. Yet during this time, Worcester is in the process of creating a modernday plan to improve quality of life for its citizens with a goal of making it the healthiest city in New England by 2020. Worcester’s Department of Public Health, UMass Memorial Health Care’s Department of Community Relations and Clara Savage of Common Pathways have begun organizing outreach to best understand the assets and struggles residents face to live healthy lives.

“We didn’t want to take the public out of public health,” says Worcester Public Health Commissioner Dr. Michael Hirsh. In light of a 2011 health report revealing 20 percent of Worcester children entering first grade are obese compared to the 10 percent national average, obesity was one of several health concerns reported on and presented at the June 26 community town hall forum at the Boys & Girls Club on Tainter Street. The topic spurred several parents to share their concerns for their children’s risk of obesity and related health issues. The low attendance last month allowed for deep discussion of home lifestyles and the current roadblocks that residents face in the prevention of obesity and other health issues including cancer resulting from tobacco use, poisoning from illegal drug use and cardiovascular problems

resulting from inactivity. To hear from a wide populous, the group conducted other forums and focus groups, as well as surveys at local events including the Juneteenth Festival, Asian American Festival and The Big Dipper ice cream festival. “It is important for us to be sure the qualitative data we are capturing is inclusive of all sectors of the community,” shares Worcester Public Health public relations manager Nicole Valentine. Forums tailored to individual communities are also being held in surrounding towns—Shrewsbury, Millbury, Leicester, Holden and West Boylston. Feedback from these towns will be compiled with that heard in Worcester. Sentiments gathered will meld with a Health of Worcester 2011 report by former continued on page 6

Gateway Park sees hope in Voke Lofts Shuchi Mitra

N

orthern Main Street is continuing its face lift. The area, once home to old mill buildings, has been undergoing a transition over the past 10 years into a land of entrepreneurship and residence. The most recent development is the renovation of the old Worcester Vocational High School buildings into mixed-income housing, that should be available for rent toward the end of 2013 or early 2014. The buildings are remnants from Worcester Technical High School’s move to Green Hill back in 2006 and have remained unused with an evergrowing risk of dilapidation. According to chief development officer of the City of Worcester, Timothy McGourthy, Worcester has been working with Worcester Business Development Corporation (WBDC) in the “remediation, renovation, and development” of the Gateway Park area. The old Voke buildings were sold to Worcester Business Development Corporation, which then contacted WinnDevelopment, a branch of WinnCompanies, in hopes of bringing more housing to the area. According to WinnDevelopment managing principal Gilbert Winn, the company has been negotiating finances and building plans with WBDC for three years. The developer

has already completed a successful renovation on Water Street of the old Chevalier building into apartments known as the Canal Lofts. WinnDevelopment will officially own the property once the finances are secured and construction begins in early 2013. McGourthy states that the renovations are “just one more element” to the overall Gateway Park master plan, which still has three or four more sites to complete, with overall construction lasting about another 10-15 years. The park as a whole, “cements the north side of Main Street [and adds to the] creation of a powerful node of activity,” says McGourthy. The idea of turning these old buildings into apartments came relatively easy as McGourthy states that old classrooms are fairly simple to renovate into apartments, and that there are not many residential properties in the area. “Real downtown housing is somewhat lacking in Worcester, and it’s a niche market we’re trying to get into.” Winn says that the construction effort will help the city’s economy by bringing in construction contracts with about 100 jobs for next year, as well as adding three

permanent full-time jobs. He goes on to say that, “For one thing this project will pay full real estate taxes which is something [the building] hasn’t done in decades. Furthermore, the project will add local foot traffic of working class and yuppie populations who will spend their disposable income in Worcester businesses.” Once completed, the Voke Lofts, as the project is currently being called, will have 84 one- and two-bedroom apartments. Most of the apartments will also have dens. WinnDevelopment expects about one to two people living in each apartment with a total number of 125-140 tenants. There will be an onsite management office, community room with kitchen, bicycle storage room, and fitness center. There will also be space for a small art gallery; Winn hopes to forge a partnership with the Worcester continued on page 6


Route 9 bridge project won’t be friendly to boaters A Walter Bird Jr.

planned three-year project to replace the 96-year-old Kenneth F. Burns Memorial Bridge on Route 9 will inconvenience boaters on Lake Quinsigamond far more than motorists, according to planners. Much of the initial work will be done from barges on the water, meaning sailboats and other water vessels will be limited in their navigation under the bridge. That could have an effect on next month’s 2012 U.S. Rowing Masters National Championships, which are scheduled to be held Aug. 9-12. Evan McCormick, project manager for The Middlesex Company, which is heading construction of the new $89-million, six-lane bridge connecting Worcester to Shrewsbury on Route 9, acknowledged boaters will be significantly affected once construction starts. “The biggest impact will be on boaters,” McCormick told more than 50 people at an informational meeting at Worcester Technical High School on Tuesday night. The crowd included seniors living at Lincoln Towers, which is not far from the bridge, as well as area business owners and residents. “There will be a lot of work done in the water,” said McCormick. “We’ll be right in the middle of the lake for two full seasons and two partial ones. It’s going to happen and we’re going to have to coordinate with any regattas and other activities on the lake.” During construction, McCormick said, one channel on the existing bridge will be closed to boat traffic, essentially leaving two negotiable channels. A minimum clearance of 50 feet will be maintained at all times, he said, adding his company is aware of the upcoming rowing championships. When the bridge is completed, boating, rowing and sailing enthusiasts will be greeted by wider and taller, steel-framed arches. The current bridge has narrower channels framed by concrete columns. Bridge construction should be finished by 2015, according to McCormick. The new structure will actually consist of two bridges separated by a 19-and-ahalf-foot-wide gap. The finished product will be 143 feet wide, nearly double the current width of 67 feet. Workers will first construct a three-lane, eastbound bridge, estimated to be done next year. Demolition of the current bridge will start in the winter 2013 and run into early spring 2014. Workers will start building the three-lane, westbound bridge in 2014 and finish by late summer 2015, well before the contract expires in 2016, according to McCormick.

The new bridge will feature lowwattage lighting, bikeways and sidewalks. There will be a total of eight scenic outlook points, as well as benches and plaques offering historic information. Seeking to clarify what he said was misinformation, Nathaniel Cabral-

Curtis, transportation planner and public involvement specialist for Howard/SteinHudson Associates Inc., said two eastbound and two westbound lanes will remain open during peak hours throughout the project. Peak hours include the morning commute to and late afternoon return from work,

Cabral-Curtis said. The current bridge is still “completely safe” for travel, McCormick said, “but it’s reaching the end of its lifespan. She’s not going to get to her hundredth birthday, but for bridge lovers it is a really goodlooking bridge.”

Worcester Public Health Commissioner Dr. B. Dale Magee and an assessment of morbidity rates by Savage to form a Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP). While Holden and Worcester differ in some ways, Hirsh and Worcester Director of Public Health Derek Brindisi are conďŹ dent that many health issues are the same for individuals in the two communities. Hirsch sees our nation’s current goal of providing everyone with health care as just the ďŹ rst part of reworking the system; the second part is controlling the costs that government and taxpayers incur by providing near-universal coverage. For Worcester and the rest of the country, he says, the way to reduce the cost of health care is by improving preventive care in daily lifestyles, in turn, keeping patients out of hospitals. Improvement plans, which Brindisi says could range from policies making dining out healthier to improved walkability throughout the city, are expected to be funded in part by dollars from agencies that are anxious to help in the health movement. “They already get it,â€? says Brindisi of municipalities such as the Department of Public Works and the Police Department,

which have just been looking for direction of how to help. Resources spent initially could beneďŹ t Worcester’s economy in the long run say Hirsh and Brindisi. There’s the hope that a healthier Worcester with improved sidewalks, environmental quality and health behaviors, will attract new business, in turn increasing the city’s revenue. At least 50 stakeholders, many from local organizations as well as individuals who want to make the lives of their communities healthier, will assist the committee in implementing CHIP changes in their communities. The report of data collected in Worcester and the surrounding ďŹ ve towns is slated to be presented to the stakeholders at the end of September. The group will identify priority areas believed to make the most impact, and then identify implementation strategies. That plan will be presented at future community forums for feedback before the ofďŹ cial CHIP is put in place. Progress of the improvement plan will be measured every four years leading up to 2020 when the city hopes to be a role model for the rest of the country during a time of change in our health-care system.

Art Museum to help them showcase local art in the gallery. The apartments will be designed to be LEED certiďŹ ed and use Energy Star appliances, creating an environmentally friendly neighborhood. Similar to the Canal Lofts property on Water Street, half of the Voke Lofts will be income-restricted apartments and the other half will be sold at market rates with the market-rate rentals for the apartments set to be at about $1,200-$1,300 per month. The income-restrictions, or deedrestrictions, are to help families who earn about less than $35,000 per year. Both Winn and McGourthy point out that these apartments will not be Section 8 housing, but rather for working-class families and public servicemen. Winn believes that, “the entire neighborhood economy will beneďŹ t

from our work because it removes a vacant blighted structure and adds foot trafďŹ c and people who spend money on food, retail and services.â€? Both WinnDevelopment and Tim McGourthy seem conďŹ dent that the overall project will be a success. Gilbert Winn says that the Canal Lofts have proven to be a successful venture for his company already, and he hopes to repeat that success with the Voke Lofts. McGourthy adds that the Gateway Park project as a whole is a successful endeavor for the city and will be more successful in the future, saying that while “we still have room to grow, [it’s] really transforming what were highly contaminated mills to attract more development.â€?

V E R BATI M We’re not actually walking up to cars. I don’t do things like that because that’s bothering people. We’re just standing here with a sign. We’re not forcing people to give us money, it’s up to them.� — Billy, while panhandling at the intersection of Park Avenue and Mill Street

LAID TO REST: In a ceremony at St.

Joseph’s Memorial Chapel that school officials say was attended by hundreds, former College of the Holy Cross’ longtime president Reverend John Brooks was laid to rest on Monday morning. Brooks’ tenure as president from 1970 to 1994 included major milestones for the school, including student-body growth and, most significantly, making the school co-ed in 1972. Brooks’ legacy, however, was cemented when as a theology professor in 1968 he drove up and down the east coast recruiting black students to attend the all-white school, bringing in a famous class that graduated in 1972 that included current Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Pulitzer-winning author Edward Jones, among others.

HIGH PRAISE: Thomas

was last at Holy Cross on January 26 to receive an honorary degree and spoke with Brooks and author Diane Brady, who wrote “Fraternity,” a book about the group of black students recruited to the school after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. In his remarks to the reportedly 600 in attendance, Thomas’ speech, while about the school, praised Brooks. “I owe a very particular debt of gratitude to Father Brooks,” he said. “Father, I thank you, I thank God you were born, I thank God you became a priest and that you came to Holy Cross. I know I speak for many, when I say that had there been no Father Brooks, we would not be where we are. I certainly wouldn’t. You are a sine qua non in my life. I know that I am the better for you having lived. You were paternal but never paternalistic. You saw each of us as a person not a project … God bless you, Father, for your wonderful, wonderful life.”

41 PERCENT AREN’T SURE: Last week we reported on Public Policy Polling’s close measuring of the Scott Brown-Elizabeth Warren race, but most importantly, they’ve released polling data on individual area’s favorability ratings among Massachusetts residents. Worcester didn’t perform so well, coming in with a favorable/unfavorable rating of 29 percent/30 percent, with 41 percent unsure. Overall, that’s a better performance than Springfield, New Bedford and Lowell (but worse than Boston, Provincetown and Cape Cod) but there were some more surprises. While Republicans were much more likely to dislike Massachusetts’ cities, Worcester fared well in terms of bipartisan favorability, with 34 percent of Democrats rating it favorable compared to 33 percent of Republicans, versus 28 percent and 36 percent rating it as unfavorable, respectively. A bit of a more alarming trend, 18-29 year olds liked Worcester less than Springfield, Lowell and New Bedford. Those hinging their hopes on that demographic for local urban renewal shouldn’t be too alarmed, cautions Lance Harris of the CMassPolitics blog “One thing I’ve been disclaiming about their polls in Massachusetts is they’re not broken down by region.” In other words, if the poll heavily drew from the state’s most populated area, there could just be a lot of resentment towards the Heart of the Commonwealth from east of I-495.

ASSESSMENTS CONTINUE TO STING: In June we reported that the owners of the

Palladium, local attorneys John Fischer and John Sousa, were threatening to tear the structure down to a build a parking lot because its assessed value jumped from $689,000 in 2011 to $2.27 million this year, resulting in a $42,000 property tax increase over one year. The owners have moved one step closer to making that threat a reality by officially asking permission of the Worcester Historical Commission to raze the building. While the owners haven’t committed to demolition yet, it’s a scary proposition for the city: the Palladium remains the last place for large-scale all-ages shows in the region and is one of the few establishments downtown that actually attracts a crowd outside of 9 to 5. A Historical Commission meeting with the building’s future on the agenda will take place on July 26.

POLITO CHARGES COUNCIL WITH VIOLATION: After a Sunday Dianne

Williamson column in the T&G, WTAG’s morning radio host Jim Polito is now charging the city council with a violation of the state’s open-meeting law, saying Williamson’s writing “documented” the collusion between councilors and Mayor Joe Petty to quietly ask City Manager Michael O’Brien to stop appearing on his show in favor of Jordan Levy’s afternoon spot. The City Manager’s office didn’t respond to an email asking for comment but Petty says while councilors were fed up with the tone of the show, O’Brien’s hectic work and family schedule offered another reason to switch his appearances. City Hall officials deny any wrongdoing as well, with Petty saying councilors griped to him individually, and never as six or more at a time (which would qualify as quorum). City Solicitor David Moore said the city council could publicly recommend where the City Manager does public appearances, but they don’t have any authority to tell him where to go, so unless there are emails that prove otherwise, it’ll be a stretch getting any kind of open-meeting-law charge to stick.

ill it ever end? I’m talking about the hot airstream coming out of the hills of Paxton, the home of radio station WTAG. The war between T&G columnist Dianne Williamson and schlock jock Jim Polito still rages, and a truce seems unlikely. The battle began because of Polito’s penchant for personal attacks. Apparently his own physical perfection makes it acceptable for him to insult and berate anyone in his path. He sees nothing wrong with discussing our former mayor’s body odor, never looking into whether or not Joe O’Brien might have a health issue that is difficult to manage. He sees nothing wrong with berating City Councilor Rick Rushton, even going so far as to play the voice of “Animal House” Dean Wormer saying “fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life” each time he mentions Rushton. Nothing wrong there. He calls this his “style” – I call it ignorant. Apparently the city council agrees, because they, along with City Manager Mike O’Brien, have severed ties with this One-Note Johnny. Good for them – better late than never. What I’ve realized after forcing myself to watch his show this morning, is that his delusions of grandeur are what drives him to continue on this track. In taking on Williamson and her recent column regarding his daily hatefest, he questioned whether she would attack Bill Maher. Polito isn’t bright enough to run Maher’s garage door, yet he’s comparing himself to an HBO talk-show host, author and filmmaker. He actually thinks his silly radio show is on par with Maher’s “Real Time.” One needn’t be liberal or conservative to see the difference between the two. It’s the difference between my column and Maureen Dowd’s – that is to say, I’m small potatoes, Jimmy. And so are you. Polito’s response to the decision to snub his show? “Dianne and the city council are corrupt and morally bankrupt.” His venom doesn’t stop there. Because I had the audacity to refute his lies in a previous column, he’s taken to inferring that Williamson and I have “a special relationship.” Yup, we do – it’s called “professional respect,” a concept with which I’m sure he’s unfamiliar. Polito is trying to act as if there’s a concerted effort to stifle his voice. Not true. What he needs to do is

Letter

Misdirected Gary Rosen’s “report” continues to stigmatize the homeless people of Worcester, a side from the fact it is factually wrong and ignorant. To make panhandling illegal only criminalize an already vulnerable population. It will only further impoverish people struggling to strive with expensive court/ ticket costs and give the police a justification to harass homeless people. A homeless person already struggles finding work (hence the panhandling), adding a criminal records to the mix only continues the structural violence against the poor. Making something illegal does not make it go away, like prohibition,

stifle his need to denigrate and debase. Those are the tools of the ill-informed. Nothing else to say? Spend 10 minutes discussing someone’s personal hygiene. Waste more minutes on the air with Jordan Levy, discussing how you’re being picked on by those who want to keep you from speaking the truth – as if you’d recognize truth if it bit your butt. Which brings me to a sad offshoot of this battle – the involvement of Jordan Levy in this brouhaha. I’ve known Jordan for a long time, and I’ve always liked and respected him. I’ve co-hosted his show while he vacationed, and I’ve been a guest, and he’s always been gracious and pleasant as a host. Lately, when he teams up with Polito, I’m hearing an ugly side to Levy that disappoints me greatly. In the past, he would’ve condemned Polito’s style. Unlike Polito, Levy knows his subject matter. He’s never needed to stoop to name–calling to cover up his lack of knowledge. And if he isn’t an expert on a subject, he freely admits it. Why he’s attached himself to a bag of wind is beyond me, unless it’s all about ratings—but Jordan Levy doesn’t need to be propped up by a Limbaugh wannabe. He’s better than that. I took a peek at the comments made online when Williamson’s Sunday column ran. Nearly every posting defending Polito was filled with nasty personal remarks directed at Williamson, and interestingly, riddled with misspellings, fractured syntax and nonsensical “points.” Maybe my job as an English teacher makes me pickier than most, but if these are his listeners, I think Bill Maher’s job is safe – unless cabins in the Ozarks get cable. I’m surprised some of those commenting were able to put down their banjos long enough to type. Here’s an unedited example of one of his fans chiming in for Polito and against Williamson: “I got to admit you are my most unliked writer. You are biased, not very good in content and more often then not your column’s seem to make no sense. I saw you in person, jim didnt lie about your looks, but why would it bother you. You and the other guy, are affirmitive action poster childs. You make good money, you have good benefits. the paper pays you to write, but you are not very good at it, but have heart, Clive is much worse.” Sweet fancy Moses, my head hurts. Polito will milk this for ratings, I’m sure. It would be great if he learned a lesson here and cleaned up his act by becoming an informed jock—one who doesn’t rely on schlock to attract an audience. It will drag on, I fear, but in the war of words, at least Williamson’s ammo has more than one syllable.

prostitution, gambling, or setting up high stakes derivatives. Rosen’s anger is directed at the wrong class of people. The longer we, as a society, continue to blame the poor for the problems of the world, the more the mega-wealthy are subsidized. As a reminder, it wasn’t the panhandler on the corner of highland street who crashed the economy. It was white men in suits who took our money and did something way more destructive than drinking a 40. I, in no way claim to be a member of any religion however, the lessons from Jesus, the most well-known homeless person, might serve him well. A S H LE Y MATES Worcester

CITY COUNCIL AIMS TO CHANGE THE WAY PANHANDLING, TAG DAYS WORK Jeremy Shulkin

Jimmy Atchue isn’t worried about rumors spreading through the community that the City Council is set to ban panhandling in the coming weeks, and he has compelling evidence.

“That will never happen. It’s like whores, it’s been around for years,” he says, referencing the adage that prostitution is the oldest job in human history. “They can’t get rid of it; they can’t get rid of me.” Atchue, who stands on the sidewalk at the Park and Chandler streets intersection, doesn’t have a wildly different story from most panhandlers. He was laid off, ended up homeless and saw other people out in traffic islands and sidewalks with signs asking for money. He’s since found housing through a local social-service agency but he’s been unable to find work for a year. “People don’t realize right now there’s not a bunch of jobs out there,” says Billy, who holds a sign at the intersection of Park Ave. and Mill Street, “Everybody does background checks, CORI checks. That stops a lot of people from getting jobs nowadays.” Danny Neal stands on a median in Lincoln Square wearing a neck brace covering a deep scar, the result of a surgery that put pins in his spine. “I know a lot of people. I roofed for 25 years, and it’s embarrassing when they see me,” he says. “They go, ‘Dan, you’re a hard worker, you worked hard all your life, what are you doing?’ I say I have no choice at the moment.” “I’m praying that he’ll be healed soon,” says his wife Jo, six months pregnant and standing on another nearby median. “He can’t work. I’ve tried. I’ve applied everywhere. I don’t think people want to hire me, maybe because I’m pregnant. I don’t know.” Among the panhandlers interviewed for this story, there are a number of similarities. None are “homeless” in the sense that they didn’t have a place to stay. They’d had a history of living in shelters, or have recently received housing from a local social-service agency. A number denied having issues with drug or alcohol dependency, while others openly acknowledged it. They also thought of what they’re doing as work – not work they were proud to do, but work nonetheless. “I say it’s work. It is. You stand out here on a hot day for eight hours in 90 degree weather,” Atchue says. “Standing out here 10 hours in the heat, in the same spot, that’s not much fun when you think about it,” Billy says. He reveals swollen feet under his socks from standing on concrete eight hours a day, six days a week (he takes Sundays off). “People think that we’re out here making a killing. Someone like me, they don’t realize that I rarely average $6 per hour. That’s not a lot of money when you think about it,” he says. Atchue’s scorn aside, there’s concern about a ban on panhandling going into effect. The Neals say they’re not sure what they would do to scrape together the cash they make panhandling. (Some days they can collect $160 in two hours, other days it takes seven hours to bring in $20.) “I have no clue [what I’d do]. I really don’t know. I’m worried about that,” Jo Neal says.

ome of the intel surrounding the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming vote on panhandling isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly correct. For one, the draft ordinance wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be made public until Friday, July 12, (at the earliest); and even its strongest supporters, like Mayor Joe Petty, are unclear what language it will contain until the law department draws it up.

First Amendment Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ken Paulson explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The government has no right to prohibit you from asking for helpâ&#x20AC;Ś Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already established that asking for money is protected by law.â&#x20AC;? There are some loopholes though. Panhandling can be banned in subway systems or outside sporting events, however, because of trafďŹ c-ďŹ&#x201A;ow concerns. Aggressive and disorderly behavior can also be prosecuted. As Mayor Petty explained at the June 27 city council meeting when he introduced the idea, he argued that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a public-safety issue, as panhandlers and even area kids raising money for sports leagues walk in and out of the roadway to collect change and dollar bills. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can ban people from soliciting,â&#x20AC;? he notes, but â&#x20AC;&#x153;my biggest fear is someone is going to get killed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only a matter of time before someone gets hurt.â&#x20AC;? Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been some hesitance among his fellow councilors, however, that any sweeping change to panhandling rules could impact â&#x20AC;&#x153;tag days,â&#x20AC;? the one-day per year fundraising done by sports teams in the city to raise money for equipment and uniforms, where kids, teens and even ďŹ reďŹ ghters stand on medians and sidewalks of busy intersections and take money from drivers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to be careful on this,â&#x20AC;? District 5 Councilor Bill Eddy cautioned at the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m all for a standard set of rules â&#x20AC;Ś [but] letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s make sure we draw a distinction.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;My concern is there are so many little leagues and football leagues and the like,â&#x20AC;? District 3 Councilor George Russell said, adding that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sign on to the ordinance â&#x20AC;&#x153;because I was afraid of the mix upâ&#x20AC;? between tag days and panhandling. To those who pull permits from the police department for tag days, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge distinction: tag days are for causes and have strict rules. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know why some on the city council [are] against doing [tag days],â&#x20AC;? says Michelle Hashem, president of the Ty Cobb Little League. Generally,

months Jo Neal, 6 pes to o h , t n a n g pre g ndout alon earn a ha e uar Lincoln Sq tag days pull in about $3,000 from motorists over the span of four hours. (She favors the Park and Chandler intersection.) The league has relied on tag days for 10 years, once raking in $5,000 before the event was the go-to method of fundraising for other Worcester athletic teams and leagues. This year, because of a smaller pool of volunteers (their tag day was after the season ended); they only raised $1,000 over two hours. If tag days went away the league would have to increase membership fees, because Hashem says other fundraising methods would just over-burden already busy parents and league organizers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anything else, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too much time involved.â&#x20AC;? The Paul Johnson Senior Babe Ruth League had its last tag day on June 6. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our one-time fundraiser; we did pretty good actually,â&#x20AC;? says league president Ray Baltramaitis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without that money, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be devastated,â&#x20AC;? he says, noting heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worried about tag days being heavily restricted, or even worse, ended. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so hard to fundraise today, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ridiculous.â&#x20AC;? Like Hashem, he says other revenue options are out of the question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At 19 years old, these kids sleep and work,â&#x20AC;? and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell candy or rafďŹ&#x201A;e tickets. Neither one, however, agrees that tag days are like panhandling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If tag days are done the right way, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ ne,â&#x20AC;? Hashem says, while panhandling â&#x20AC;&#x153;looks bad on the city.â&#x20AC;? Legally, however, it could be dicey to split the two. Paulson warns that carving exemptions can lead to problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why would we allow a Boy Scout troop [to solicit funds] but not an individual citizen?â&#x20AC;? he asks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play favorites by cause.â&#x20AC;? The similarities arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost on those panhandling, either. Billy, in Webster Square, notes that what he does is

similar to tag days, and also wonders if any new law would impact political standouts and sign holding during election season. “To me, it’s exactly the same. What’s the difference?” asks Bob Flanagan, an organizer for the Worcester Homeless Action Committee. “They’re both asking for money, one just doesn’t look as presentable. “Asking for money is asking for money.” There could be legitimate ways to regulate both, such as stepping up police enforcement of tag days to include checks that no one younger than 16 participates and that no one steps in the street, while similarly offering permits or a peddler’s license to those who want to panhandle, as is the case in Boston and Springfield. (Atchue’s response to licensing is “in order to get a permit to panhandle, I’m going to have to get a panhandle to get the permit.”)

or people in Worcester’s socialservices scene, the sentiments coming out of City Hall remind them of 2005 when Worcester kicked off an awareness campaign aimed at encouraging motorists to give to charities rather than directly to people on the street. Called the Action Plan to Reduce the Incidence of Panhandling and written by then commissioner of code enforcement Jill Dagilis, the city bought billboards, flyers, radio and TV spots and street signs saying “Panhandling is not the solution!

specifically homeless. They’re just down on their luck,” he says. He also defends their behavior. “I have never seen any of the panhandlers violent or disrespectful,” and notes that a rumor that a person drives around in a van picking up and dropping off people may be true, but only because they live in the van, not because they’re in some organized panhandling ring. (People we spoke to about their observations staking out corners or intersections had mixed confirmation about aggressive behavior. Some said it existed, some said it didn’t. Some said 90 percent used drugs, others said most use the money raised to supplement their rent money.)

Support the solution, not the problem. Give to a local charity.” The initiative brought in more than 20 private, public and nonprofit partners. “Both the national research and the local social-service agency partners advise that we must educate those who give money directly to people who panhandle that this is not the solution, unfortunately it exacerbates the problem,” Dagilis wrote in the action plan, adding that seven out of 10 panhandlers will use the money to buy alcohol, cigarettes or drugs. “The collaborative effort will include an interagency model of outreach, intervention, and harm reduction strategies that are designed to respect the dignity and the rights of the individuals who panhandle while addressing the complex root causes of poverty, homelessness, hunger, and substance abuse recovery.” “This rears its head every now and then,” Flanagan says. “It was a total failure,” he says of the previous campaign.

“Some message was missed somewhere along the line.” “It basically started the same way,” he notes, with complaints of aggressive panhandling and an increase of people soliciting money. “People just get annoyed and disgusted seeing people out there,” he adds. “They think it looks shameful.” Instead, Flanagan, who drives around the city providing water to panhandlers on hot days, agrees that just telling people to give to agencies instead is a simplistic approach. “A lot of panhandlers are not

in 2011. With that in mind, the issue for socialservice agencies is ďŹ guring out whether or not panhandlers are utilizing them for help, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know they exist or are actively avoiding them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not yet heard one of our partner agencies call me saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re overďŹ&#x201A;owing, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet the need,â&#x20AC;? says United Way of Central Massachusetts president and CEO Tim Garvin.

Garvin says the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s social-service agencies â&#x20AC;&#x153;stand readyâ&#x20AC;? to support that cause.

Meanwhile, Atchue fondly remembers getting a $100 bill from a motorist. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some days you can make $30 or $40 in an hour,â&#x20AC;? he says. Some days it takes you all day to make $5. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean all they receive is spare change. In a time where pedestrians test the veracity of people approaching them on the street for gas money or a bus ticket back to Boston, and then balk when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re offered food or a ticket instead of bills or change, the folks on city streets will take what you give. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get some people that hand you pennies,â&#x20AC;?

night day& Food truck festival July 12 -18, 2012

Barbara Taormina

For Worcester, the food-truck phenomenon started back in the late-19th century when T.H. Buckley’s Worcestermade lunch carts started serving sandwiches, boiled eggs, pie and coffee to the late-shift workers in factories downtown.

Today, a new generation of highend, gourmet food trucks is on the road, and on Saturday, July 14, a caravan will pull into Elm Park for the Food Truck Festival of New England. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the trucks will be serving up everything from artisan grilled cheese sandwiches to falafel to authentic Texas barbecue. Participating trucks scheduled to serve include Away Café, Gabi’s Smoke Shack, Big Moe’s M&M Ribs, Go Fish!, Bon Me, Grilled Cheese Nation, Boston Super Dog, Juniper Farms Ice Cream, Max Dawgs, Cookie Monstah, Captain Marden’s Cod Squad, Kona Ice, Daddy’s Fried Dough and Lobsta Love. Worcester’s own Kona Ice will be part of the lineup. Shawn Smith and his wife, Ellen, jumped into the exotically flavored mobile shavedice business a couple of years ago. Smith, who also owns an electrical contracting company, got a little tired waiting for economic recovery to trickle down to the trades and decided to try something new. “We go to a lot of local concerts, events and fundraisers,” explains Smith. “People want to see more food trucks. They like the convenience, they get what they want and move on.” Kona Ice is typical of the new wave of food trucks that started on the West Coast and migrated east. “What we make isn’t your regular snow cone, which, a lot of times is a flavorless ball of ice in a cup,” says Smith. “Our shaved ice is more like snow, and we have the best of the best of flavors.” Those flavors include creamsicle, French vanilla, peach and wedding cake. And the food trucks that serve main courses have little in common with trucks that serve wrinkled hot dogs plucked from a pot of cloudy water. “It’s gourmet food on wheels,” says Anne-Marie Aigner, who organized the festival to showcase the trucks.

Aigner says bringing the trucks all together as a festival lets people sample different menus that offer a wide range of foods such lobster bisque, savory and sweet crepes, vegetarian pockets, salads and rice bowls and specialty ice creams and sweets like Kona Ice. Like Smith, Aigner figures the food trucks have caught on because they offer a dining-out experience that’s easy and affordable. As for the cooks, Aigner says people have embraced

Grafs got back up again and launched Schnitzels & Giggles, a food truck that serves German food. The Grafs have embraced a new lifestyle as food gypsies who travel through the South during the winter and head north when the weather gets warm. At home in New England, they work their way along the busy route of festivals and fairs serving sauerkraut, spätzle, wiener schnitzel, German potato salad and homemade bratwurst that comes either on a roll or on a stick.

the food-truck craze for different reasons. For wellknown and well-established restaurants, a food truck is often about mobile marketing. But for others who dream of owning a restaurant but don’t have hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest, a food truck can be an alternative entry point into the business. For Danbury, N.H., residents Alex and Bob Graf, a food truck was actually a re-entry point. The Grafs had eight years tied up into their inn and German bistro when the recession forced them to shut down. But the

“A lot of the trucks serve food on a stick,” says Aigner. “But there’s a lot more. The variety is amazing.” Fancheezical, Captain Marden’s Cod Squad, Gabi’s Smoke Shack and Bon Me, which specializes in Vietnamese cuisine, are just some of the trucks that will be heading to Worcester to join Kona Ice this Saturday. Food Truck Festival organizers will be selling blocks of taste tickets in books of 10 tickets for $13, and 20 for $25. Tickets are good at all the trucks at the event.

Keep up your bright swords! Worcester Shakespeare Festival moves to Whitin Mill

Meaghan Hardy-Lavoie

The Worcester Shakespeare Company’s seventh-annual Worcester Shakespeare Festival, which has been held at the Green Hill Park Memorial Amphitheatre in the past, is making a move to bring Shakespeare to life this year on the Plaza at The Whitin Mill in Blackstone Valley starting Friday, July 13.

The Worcester Shakespeare Company is comprised of professional actors from New York to Boston, as well as local acting, design, costume and makeup talent from right here in the community. Alternatives Inc., the festival’s new organizer, is a nonprofit organization that provides services for adults with developmental and psychiatric disabilities. The renovated Whitin Mill hosts a

theater and art gallery and partners with several theater groups. Working toward its mission of helping individuals with disabilities to find valued roles in the community, this effort provides opportunities for the people who Alternative Inc. serves to get to know community members and form reciprocal relationships. Tom Saupe, director of community outreach, is very excited for this opportunity. “Alternatives is thrilled to have the Worcester Shakespeare Company performing on the Whitin Mill Community Plaza this summer. We host and partner with many groups to provide theater, concerts and gallery exhibits that people of all abilities can enjoy together,” adds Saupe. “We will always be grateful to our Green Hill Park audience for the first nine years of the company. As far as I’m concerned, we will always be known as the Worcester Shakespeare Company. Worcester is our birthplace and our true

home; no matter how far into nearby locations we travel,” says Mel Cobb, who is the producing artistic director and will also play the leading role of Othello. The audience can expect a similar vibe to what they experienced at the Memorial Amphitheatre in Green Hill Park. That is, the glory of natural light, natural sounds and a setting that is truly integrated into the production of the play,” explains Cobb. “They can also expect a bit more comfortable environment when it comes to necessary facilities. Otherwise, they will experience the same quality and commitment to Shakespeare that Worcester Shakespeare Company has always provided.” Othello was chosen as this year’s production for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, it hasn’t been performed in the area recently; and secondly, because the new performance area will complement the period setting in which Othello takes place. In addition to the outdoor performance area, which is reminiscent of Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Worcester Shakespeare Company will now have access to an indoor theater facility as well. The Singh Theatre is now at their disposal, just as Shakespeare had the indoor Blackfriar Theatre. The Singh Theatre is at the same location and can be used in case of inclement weather. “Othello” opens on Friday, July 13, and will run every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 7 p.m. through August 19. For a complete list of performance dates, directions, and box office information, visit worcestershakespearecompany.org.

Author Trisha Wooldridge with Rita Sawyer

Hi, Trisha. Let’s give the readers a little glimpse into who you are. Being a writer is my life

— even my husband, who is awesomely supportive, knows where writing ranks in regards to him in my attention pecking order. When I’m not actively writing or researching, I tutor or teach. I also do a lot of mentoring of other writers and those who want to go into freelance writing and editing. I adopted a horse, Calico Silver, about two years ago, and also work with a horse rescue. She’s a big part of my life and one of the few things that can pull me out of my head and into the “now” moment. I also have a rabbit and a cat, and while they’re not as life-altering as a horse, they have been a constant, amazing force for good, balance, and love in my life. In fact, my bunny, Loki, and my cat, Nylis, are the logo for my freelance business.

Let’s talk a little about what got you started writing. How long have you been writing? When

I was in kindergarten or first grade, I distinctly remember rushing home to share my vocabulary sentences with my mother, who always listened closely and was entertained. I have always loved wordsmithing for as long as I can remember - and entertaining people with that ability.

What genre(s) do you write? I’m a total geek. Contemporary fantasy — dark contemporary fantasy — is where I most often find myself, but I also dip into horror, epic fantasy, and even some science fiction. I also tend to write for a young adult or mid-grade level audience — length stuff, though a lot of my short fiction is definitely NOT for children. Besides fiction, of course, I also write a lot of nonfiction. I love writing about the business side of writing, unusual games for writers to use, horses and animal care,

food and wine (and the science related to food and wine), and entertainment. Some of my favorite accomplishments include interviewing people like the multiplatinum record band, Nightwish, and the director and producer of “Incubus,” the latest film starring horror legend Robert Englund (who I got to meet at the red carpet premiere!)

What was your journey to publication like? Long

and full of learning and ever winding — even now! My first acceptance came from networking through Broad Universe, an international nonprofit dedicated to supporting women who write science fiction, fantasy and horror. One of the other members posted an Open Call on our discussion list for the second book in a series of anthologies called BAD-ASS FAERIES. I loved the first anthology, and I had a few ideas. My first pitch was turned down, but since I had gotten to know the editor through the organization, she let me pitch again — and gave me feedback on how I pitched. She accepted the second pitch I sent her — a co-written story with one of my close friends, Christy Tohara, for “Party Crashers.” Shortly after that, I had a novella accepted at an online e-zine - and that was my first advance check at a professional fiction rate. Since then, I’ve made it into several other anthologies, with some paying advances and others just royalties.

Where is your book or books available? All of anthologies I’m in are available on Amazon.com. They are also available locally at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester and Generations Gifts in Oxford. Can you tell us a little about what you’re working on next? Hahahaha! I have a list. A big long

to-do list. I also have a deadline for two different anthologies, one I was invited to and another I’m editing, both out from Spencer Hill Press. “Holiday Magick” takes a look at the secret stories behind

various holidays celebrated around the world — because they really are “magick.” “Doorways to Extra Time” explores the lengths people would go to for extra time in their day — and the consequences of such decisions. And my writing partner, Christy Tohara, and I are working on a Super Secret project that I will be making announcements for soon.

Where can readers find you on the Internet? Do you include any local places in your stories? As a matter of fact, I destroyed Green Hill Park in a nuclear war between the human realm and Faerie in the third BAD-ASS FAERIES anthology in the short story, “Last Gate to Faerie.”

Actually, if you just Google “Trisha Wooldridge” or “Trisha J. Wooldridge” or “Novel Friend,” it’s wicked easy to find me. My main website is anovelfriend.com, and my blog is novelfriend.blogspot.com or novelfriend.wordpress.com.

“BOB” journeys to WPI Taylor Nunez

Bob’s story is different, for certain. Born in the bathroom of a fast-food joint and left to fend for himself from birth onwards, Bob’s lengthy pursuit of happiness as he travels across America is struck with devastating blows and occasional highs. Through his journey to discovering his own greatness with high hopes for his dreams to come into fruition, Bob encounters fellow citizens also embarking on their own paths to the American dream. This one man’s fight for success will spill across the stage as the Worcester Polytechnic Institute and MW Repertory Theatre Co. present Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s play, “BOB.” “BOB” certainly has its dark moments, but for director and soon-to-be WPI senior Alex Rock, it was love at first sight. The Medfield native grew fond of the script after purchasing the compilation of plays from the 2011 Humana Festival and “BOB” simply stood out. “The writing in ‘BOB’ is phenomenal…The whole show exhibits an air of false happiness and deals with heavier subjects with a light tone. Although Bob does experience an extremely large amount of hardships throughout the show, he constantly has a goal of becoming a ‘great, great man,’” Rock explains. When it came time for plays to be submitted as contenders for WPI’s summer show, Rock’s first pick was voted to be produced. With a summer production, Rock and his cast face challenges that are not experienced with a typical schoolyear production. The cast is small – five members of the WPI community will be performing the entire show. Playing the lead role Bob, sophomore Patrick Thomas will be taking the stage. The four chorus

members will be junior Sylvia Parol, seniors Brian Joseph and Marissa Norton, and WPI 2012 alumni, Richie Wingert. With the campus lacking its full student body, there are far fewer individuals available to assist in the production. “Lots of people tend to wear more than one hat. The responsibilities of the show are falling on a much smaller number of people than they do during the traditional school year,” explains Rock. As Rock busily produces his second full-length production at WPI (his first was “Dark Play or Stories for Boys” by Carlos Murillo in 2010) he recognizes the immense impact theater has made on his time at WPI. “Theater is incredibly important for college students because it allows for them to have an outlet outside of their normal responsibilities and commitments to express some of their creative spirit. It frequently confronts people with new ideas and thoughts allowing for [students] to assess them and occasionally leading to change,” Rock states. Performing “BOB” has its own gratifications beyond the opportunity to be creative. Wingert recognizes the common ground Bob and any audience member can share. “This show means a great deal to me. I feel that there isn’t one person who can say, ‘I have never made a mistake in my life.’ Bob’s life signifies that throughout our experiences, good or bad, we are not alone.” Also finding that nearly anyone can relate to Bob’s self-exploration, Rock explains, “Bob’s journey to becoming a ‘great, great man’ parallels everyone’s life. The show primarily discusses people’s view of what success is and how one can come to achieve it.” To join Bob on the road to finding personal success and achievement, do not miss “BOB,” taking place July 1214 from 8 to 9:30 p.m. at the WPI Little Theatre.

New twists on the menu Kendra Lapin

This little family-run restaurant is situated in the center of Webster. There are only about a dozen tables inside the small shop that is beautifully decorated with Thai paintings and fabric art. It wasn’t very busy on a Saturday night, but there was a steady stream of couples and families coming in and out.

We were seated right away and a server came by in a good amount of time for our drink order. The menu is pretty big with quite a few items we hadn’t seen on other Thai menus, so it took a bit of time to decide. We started by splitting the salmon firecrackers and a papaya salad.

The firecrackers were an item I hadn’t seen before and ended up being cooked salmon in a wonton, wrapped like a firecracker, and deep fried. It came with a good sesame dipping sauce, and while the rolls had an overall good flavor, I found the fish a little overcooked. On the other hand, the papaya salad - while also a little different than ones I’ve had - was really nice. The shaved green papaya and carrots were lightly dressed in a spicy, lemony dressing, and came with halved cherry tomatoes, topped with peanuts, and served atop a cross-slice of lettuce to tone down the spice a little, and the different crunches from the vegetables and peanuts created a pleasant texture. Our main courses were pad Thai with crispy chicken and the house duck. Crispy chicken with pad Thai was another new twist we hadn’t experienced before, and it was executed nicely. Dark chicken meat was lightly breaded and deep fried, served atop the traditional pad Thai noodles with the scallions, bean sprouts, and egg in the sweet peanut sauce. The chicken was delicious and tender and complemented the soft noodles and crisp vegetables. The house duck was a boneless cutlet breaded

similarly to the chicken and fried. It was not as tender as I’d like duck, but the flavor was great. What really stood out about the dish, though, were the excellent vegetables and the light gravy. There was just enough sauce to enhance the flavor and mix with the rice. (Speaking of the rice, Thai Cuisine also offers brown rice in addition to fried and sticky rice - so that is what I ordered. It was perfectly done: fluffy in texture with a nice nutty flavor.) The vegetables were only very lightly cooked, so they retained their crispness, flavor and brightness - and were just delicious. Had I chosen one of the nonfried options, it would have been a much healthier meal. In fact, there are a lot of healthy and vegetarian options for those interested - and with what we saw of all the vegetables in our choices, these would be

excellent selections. We were too full for dessert; the portion sizes were generous but not ridiculous, so we weren’t overstuffed. The total meal, including the Thai iced tea, was $46.87, which was pretty good. If you STEVEN KING

like Thai food, you appreciate menus with new twists on favorite items, or if you especially appreciate good vegetables, definitely make the trip out to Webster center for Thai Cuisine!

Raising a glass to wine everywhere

Snob appeal Al Vuona

C

entral to the very premise of wine appreciation is the notion that somehow it requires a special set of skills. That in order to most fully understand and enjoy the experience of snifďŹ ng and sipping fermented grape juice; one must have a cache of knowledge to which mere mortals do not possess. For the record, I whole heartily disagree. Case in point, I, your humble correspondent, had no prior skill, knowledge or divine intervention when bitten by the wine bug. In fact, it was quite the opposite. I had to learn as I went along; that is how one becomes proďŹ cient in wine. Unfortunately, for some people something known as snob appeal has manifested itself along the way. You never know when or where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to encounter a socalled Wine Snob. Then, before you know it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being bombarded by a host of terms like malolactic fermentation, carbonic maceration or chaptalization. In the end you feel bewildered, humiliated, excluded, and inclined to drink nothing but Kool-Aid. And the notion that a Wine Snob is wealthy, well-educated and well born is mere hearsay. Snobs come in all shapes and sizes. The trick is to avoid them at all cost. Let me say from the start that snobbery has no place in the world of wine. Wine Snobs are people who have taken their passion to irrational extremes, moved beyond the realm of reality, and have a distorted sense of being. When you love wine, you enjoy the simple pleasure of the product. Anything more may cause you to embark on a path of unreasonable behavior. OF THE WEEK That in turn can easily elevate the perception of Austin Hope self-importance, like being overly judgmental when (Non-Vintage) presented with a ďŹ ne bottle of wine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Troublemaker Red,â&#x20AC;? As for Wine Snobs, thank goodness they are few California, about $20 and far between and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing.

Two minutes with...

Ann Zelesky Ann Zelesky has lived in Worcester her whole life. After attending Worcester State, she coached basketball and softball for 14 years at Saint Peter-Marian High School. Her coaching led the teams to 17 district championships and six state championships; all said, she compiled a 52575 record during her tenure. Since then she has been at Holy Cross, where she is associate athletic director. With the anniversary of Title IX upon us, we just had to talk to Ann about how female-base sports have changed.

When did you first get involved in sports? I played softball and basketball

in high school and continued those two sports in college, but decided two were not enough. So I took on volleyball and field hockey as well!

Have women’s sports changed significantly since when you were involved in youth athletics? Women’s

sports have undergone major changes since I competed. Women are playing sports year round and are participating in strength and conditioning programs which make them stronger and faster. Boys and girls youth sports programs across the country are reaching equilibrium. Women athletes are enjoying better coaching, facilities and equipment that are generally on par with the men. You can see it in the women athletes who attend Holy Cross. They have benefitted from years of solid sports programs. It is so rewarding to see women athletes receive scholarships and be able to compete in sports and be respected for the talents they have. When I was young, 1 in 25 girls were playing sports, and we were referred to as “tomboys.” Now girls are encouraged

to play sports, and 1 in 2.5 are playing!

Has it ever been hard to be a woman in a field mainly dominated by men? The

challenges I dealt with were more prevalent before I entered high school. Girls were not allowed to play Little League and there were no girls leagues as they currently exist. I remember going to the school yard every day when I was young and hoping that the boys had an odd number of kids playing pick-up baseball, basketball or football, hoping for a chance to play. My first two experiences with male athletic directors were with Bob Foley at St. PeterMarian and Ron Perry at Holy Cross. You could not ask for more supportive bosses who are two of the best coaches ever in Massachusetts. They treated me with respect and dignity and managed their athletes uniformly regardless of gender.

The 40th anniversary of Title IX, the law giving women equal access as men to high school and college athletics, was in June. How has this law influenced your career in sports? Title IX opened up

a myriad of opportunities for women. This law has enabled a generation of women STEVEN KING to enjoy a wide offering of athletic activities which, in turn, has helped women develop to their full potential. The combination of a strong academic program and a great athletic program is a powerful onetwo punch for producing the quality leaders we need in our society to meet the challenges in our country. I’m thrilled to see how athletics have enabled women to be more competitive not only on the playing field, but in life.

What makes a great sports team? A

combination of good athletes and coaches are the building blocks; but more importantly, the attribute that carries teams to championships, is a sense of responsibility in each player for placing team goals ahead of personal achievement. Parental support goes a long way as well. The teams I was involved with that won championships truly cared about each other and worked together as one. Let me comment more specifically about coaches. The head coaches frequently are the most visible, but our assistant

coaches play a critical role in building winning programs. My friend and former assistant coach Carol Ryan served in this role for 13 years while at Saint Peter-Marian High School. In looking back at our many successes, I can see Carol’s fingerprints all over everything we did.

How do you hope to inspire young athletes today? My experiences in

athletics and life experiences have taught me many lessons. Challenges are sure to be in one’s path, but they are the things upon which we build our character. I have learned as I navigated the ups and downs in both sports and day-to-day life that passion and optimism can carry you a long way. I hope to pass that same spirit of passion and optimism along to young people. These two attributes have worked in my life when faced with a challenge well beyond a matter of points on the scoreboard. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008, I trapped myself in a 24-hour pity party. Well, I could see this would take me nowhere good. I leaned on my competitive spirit, born and nurtured through my life-long involvement in athletics. I faced the surgery, chemotherapy and radiation head on and did not let it beat me! Passion for life and optimism carried me through the darkest days and delivered a wonderful opportunity to me to serve others. I have become part of the Pink Revolution, which is an organization dedicated to assisting breast-cancer patients in their journey to recovery. With the help of board members like Audrey Kurlan Marcy and Mary Aframe, along with many of the staff and athletes at Holy Cross, we have raised more than $20,000 in the past two years. I am sure our passion and optimism have had a lot to do with our success in raising money to help others! - Shalyn Hopley
