Running like a man often doesn’t work. Fed up with the damned-if-you-do, damned-ifyou-don’t advice heaped on female political candidates, some of the many women running for office this year are doing whatever they damn well want. In one campaign ad, a Republican congresswoman from Arizona tells her party to “grow a pair of ovaries.” Democrats running for governor in Wisconsin and Maryland have pitched their candidacies on camera while breastfeeding their babies. A Michigan Democrat says that in choosing their next attorney general, voters should consider: “Who can you trust most not to show you their penis in a professional setting?” After an election that unleashed women’s fury and sexual harassment scandals that spawned a thousand hashtags, women are shattering traditional limits of gender decorum in campaign ads.

Those steps, detailed by city officials Monday, are part of a broad new transportation strategy that will be included in Mayor Martin J. Walsh’s budget request for the next fiscal year. But in a city notorious for traffic congestion, most of the measures focus not on managing cars, but on alternatives such as improving biking and walking routes and speeding up buses on city streets.

The changes laid out by Baker and Colonel Kerry A. Gilpin are designed to begin fixing what Baker called the police force’s “tarnished” reputation. “It is clear that the actions of members within this agency have threatened that public trust,” Gilpin said at a State House press conference. “The membership knows that we need change.

The fine increase would have the dual effect of discouraging practices that can worsen traffic, while raising $5 million to fund transportation initiatives. If approved by the City Council, the parking fines and other changes would go into effect in the fiscal year beginning July 1.

By Dana Goldstein NEW YORK TIMES NEW YORK — Thousands of teachers in Oklahoma and Kentucky walked off the job Monday morning, shutting down school districts as they protested low pay, cuts in benefits, and a lack of scho ol fun ds in a movement that’s spreading across the nation. The wave of strikes in red states, mainly organized by teachers on Facebook, has caught lawmakers and sometimes the teachers’ own labor unions flat-footed. The protesters say they are fed up with years of education funding cuts and stagnant pay in Republican-dominated states. The movement began with job actions in West Virginia earlier this year. In Oklahoma City, where thousand of protesting teachers gathered at the Capitol on Monday, Katrina Ruff, a local teacher, carried a sign that read, “Thanks to West Virginia.” “They gave us the guts to stand up for ourselves,” she said. Alicia Priest, president of the Oklahoma Education Association, the state’s largest teachers union, said the walkout would continue at least until Tuesday, as members continue pressing their demands for lawmakers to approve more funding, the Associated Press reported. School districts in Oklahoma City and the Tulsa areas have canceled Tuesday classes. In Kentucky, teachers are protesting a pension reform bill that abruptly passed the state House and Senate last week. If the Republican governor, Matt Bevin, signs it , the change will phase out defined-benefit pensions for teachers and replace them with hybrid retirement plans that combine features of a traditional pension with features of the 401(k) accounts used in the private sector. Teachers in the state are not eligible for Social Security benefits. Chanting ‘‘enough is ALEX SLITZ/LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER VIA AP Thousands of teachers rallied at the state Capitol in Frankfort, Ky., Monday as teachers such as Melissa Knight (left) joined an Oklahoma protest. SUE OGROCKI/ASSOCIATED PRESS enough’’ and ‘‘we’ll remember in November,’’ the line of Kentucky teachers and school employees stretched for blocks Monday as they traveled toward the Capitol building holding signs. In response to the protests, budget negotiators in the Ken- tucky Legislature unveiled a spending plan Monday that includes increased spending for the main funding formula for K-12 schools, the AP reported. The plan also restored $254 million in money for school buses that Bevin had proposed eliminating. The Kentucky higher education spending would be funded by a 6 percent sales tax on a host of services that had previously been tax-free. The spending and taxing proposals cleared the Senate on Monday. As the national movement has gained momentum, it has also grown more ambitious. Striking West Virginia teachers declared victory last month after winning a 5 percent raise, but Oklahoma educators are holding out for more. Last week, the Legislature in Oklahoma City voted to provide teachers with an average raise of $6,000 per year, or a roughly 16 percent raise, depending on experience. Governor Mary Fallin, a Republican, signed the package into law. But teachers said it was not enough. They have asked for a $10,000 raise, as well as additional funding for local schools and raises for support staff such as bus drivers and custodians. About 200 of the state’s 500 school districts shut down Monday as teachers walked out, defying calls from some parents and administrators for them to be grateful about what they had already received from the state. To pay for the raise, politicians from both parties agreed to increase production taxes on oil and gas, the state’s most prized industry, and institute taxes on tobacco and motor fuel. It was the first new revenue bill to become law in Oklahoma in 28 years, bucking decades of tax-cut orthodoxy. Andrew Beaver, 32, a middle school math teacher in Louisville, Ky., said he was open to changes in teacher retirement programs, such as potentially asking teachers to work to an older age before drawing down benefits; currently, some Kentucky teachers are eligible for retirement around age 50. But he said he and his colleagues, many of whom have called in sick to protest the bill, were angry about not having a seat at the negotiation table with Bevin, a Republican, and the Republican majority in the Legislature. “What I’m seeing in Louisville is teachers are a lot more politically engaged than they were in 2015 or 2016,” Beaver said. “It really is a wildfire.” In Arizona, thousands of teachers gathered in Phoenix last week to demand a 20 percent pay raise and more funding for schools. “We’re going to continue to escalate our actions,” said Noah Karvelis, an elementary school music teacher in Tolleson, outside Phoenix, and a leader of the movement calling itself #RedforEd, after the red Tshirts protesting teachers are wearing across the country. Karvelis, 23, said teachers would not walk out of class unless they were able to win support from parents and community members across the state, including in rural areas. But he said the movement would be influential regardless of whether it shuts down schools. “We’re going to have a lot of teachers at the ballot box who I don’t think would normally go in a midterm year,” he said. “If I were a legislator right now, I’d be honestly sweating bullets.” Lily Eskelsen García, president of the National Education Association, the nation’s largest teachers’ union, called the movement an “education spring.” Daily Briefing Old, new drugs make deadly mix in Ohio Cliff plunge may have been intentional Democrats question Trump defense fund CINCINNATI — A new surge in the use of methamphetamine and cocaine mixed with a powerful synthetic opioid are contributing to rising drug overdose death tolls in already hard-hit Ohio. As county coroners have begun releasing their 2017 tallies, a trend has emerged of more deaths involving meth or cocaine mixed with fentanyl, the painkiller blamed for increasing US fatalities in recent years as authorities focused on reducing heroin overdoses. US authorities say illicit fentanyl made in China has flooded in, while there is increased availability of meth and a rebound in cocaine. All have been contributing to the national rises in overdose deaths and are increasingly being seen in lethal mixes. MENDOCINO, Calif. — An SUV carrying a large family from Washington accelerated straight off a scenic California cliff, and authorities now say the deadly wreck may have been intentional. The wreck was discovered last week, days after child welfare authorities began investigating whether the children were being neglected. Information pulled from the vehicle’s software shows it was stopped at a flat pull-off area before it sped off the steep rocky face and plunged 100 feet, said Captain Greg Baarts of the California Highway Patrol. Baarts said the electronic information combined with the lack of skid marks or signs the driver braked led authorities to believe the crash was purposeful. Five members of the Hart family were found dead. The search continued for three more children believed to have been in the vehicle when it went over a coastal overlook and landed on rocks in the Pacific Ocean below. The missing children may have been washed out to sea, authorities say. ‘‘This specific location is very difficult to search because the ocean currents and tides are strong, it’s unpredictable, and the murkiness of the water makes it difficult to see,’’ said Captain Greg Van Patten, a spokesman for the Mendocino County sheriff’s office. The multiracial family of two married women, Sarah and Jennifer Hart, and their WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats raised ethics questions on Monday about the framework of a defense fund set up to help pay legal costs for White House, Trump campaign, and Trump transition officials caught up in investigations into Russian meddling in the election. Eighteen House Democrats claim the new defense fund appears to be structured more loosely than ones in earlier administrations. Because of the way it’s set up, the fund could receive donations from lobbyists or others with interests before the Trump administration — and also could be used to influence witnesses, the Democrats warned in a letter to David Apol, acting director of the Office of Government Ethics. In late January, Apol told a group of lawyers who set up Authorities say many drug users may be unaware they are taking fentanyl. States as different as New Hampshire, West Virginia, and Florida have seen rising overdose death rates in recent years. The problem is particularly acute in Ohio, where overdose death rates have been climbing steadily. Spreading fentanyl and increased meth use ‘‘have turned an already bad situation into something far worse,’’ Butler County coroner Dr. Lisa Mannix said recently while announcing a fifth straight record overdose toll in the southwest Ohio county. The 232 overdose deaths in 2017 were 21 percent more than in 2016, Mannix said, with meth-related deaths quadrupling last year. ASSOCIATED PRESS Legal marijuana may help opioid problem NEW YORK — Two new studies suggest that legalizing marijuana can help fight the problem of opioid addiction and fatal overdoses. The new studies don’t directly assess the effect of legalizing marijuana on opioid addiction and overdose deaths. Instead, they find evidence that legalization may reduce the prescribing of opioids. The studies, led by researchers in Kentucky and Georgia, were released Monday by the journal JAMA Internal Medicine. One looked at trends in opioid prescribing under Medicaid, which covers low-income adults, between 2011 and 2016. Results showed that laws that let people use marijuana to treat specific medical conditions were associated with about a 6 percent lower rate of opioid prescribing for pain. The other study looked at opioid prescribing nationwide for people using Medicare, which covers people 65 years or older and those with disabilities. Researchers found that Medicare patients in states with marijuana dispensaries filled prescriptions for about 14 percent fewer daily doses of opioids than those in other states.

Trump seeks arbitration in Daniels case President Trump asked a federal judge on Monday to order private arbitration in a case brought by a porn actress who claimed she had an affair with him. Trump and his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, filed papers in federal court in Los Angeles asking a judge to rule that Stormy Daniels’s case involving a nondisclosure agreement must be heard by an arbitrator instead of a jury. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has been seeking to invalidate the agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election. She has offered to re- turn the $130,000 she was paid. She has said she had sex with Trump once in 2006, and that their relationship continued for about a year. Trump married his wife, Melania Trump, in 2005, and their son, Barron, was born in 2006. The White House has said Trump denies having an affair. Trump’s attorneys have argued that Daniels could owe about $20 million for violating the nondisclosure deal. Daniels argues the agreement is legally invalid because it was signed by her and Cohen, but not by Trump.

That’s in dispute By Rod Nordland NEW YORK TIMES KABUL — Afghan military helicopters bombed a religious gathering in the northern province of Kunduz on Monday, killi n g at l e a s t 7 0 p e o p l e a n d wounding 30 others, according to a local official in the area. The official, Nasruddin Saadi, district governor of Dasht-eArchi, said the helicopters attacked a religious ceremony for which about 1,000 people had assembled in a mosque and surrounding fields around noon. Witnesses reached by telephone said the mosque was also a madrassa, or religious school, and that members of the Taliban had been present at the assembly, which had been organized to recognize graduates, appoint mullahs, and elevate junior mullahs. Saadi said the event was religious in nature and that the security forces decided to attack because armed militants were in attendance. Brigadier General Mohammad Radmanish, a spokesman for the Defense Ministry, denied the gathering had been for religious purposes and said the operation targeted the Taliban, not worshipers. “The Taliban and other insurgent groups were planning to attack Afghan forces, but their plan was discovered by our forces,” Radmanish said. Radmanish said the airstrike in the Dasht-e-Archi district of Kunduz province killed more than 30 Taliban fighters, including nine commanders, the Associated Press reported. ‘‘I can confirm that a Taliban training center was bombed and no civilians were present,’’ he said. But witnesses said children and other civilians were among the victims. ASSOCIATED PRESS An Afghan boy was treated at a hospital following an airstrike in the Dashti Archi district of Kunduz province. Dasht-e-Archi is a Taliban stronghold that has often been the scene of heavy fighting. In May, a US drone strike in the district killed Mullah Abdul Salam, the Taliban “shadow governor” of Kunduz. In 2016, an Afghan airstrike killed another prominent Talib a n c o mm a n d e r, Maw l av i Muawiyah, in Dasht-e-Archi, along with 21 other fighters, according to the military. US airstrikes in the area have repeatedly been blamed for civilian casualties, and Afghan forces are increasingly taking over air operations there. A 40-year-old farmer from the district, who gave his name only as Mohammad, said there had been a small number of armed Taliban fighters among the crowd at the assembly, but that most of the attendees were civilians, including madrassa students and graduates. He said that many children had been present, and that the first rockets fired by the helic o pt e rs h a d hi t a g r ou p o f youngsters. The farmer was unable to say how many had been killed or hurt, but added that one of the wounded was his nephew, age 10. “Children come to any gathering where there is a free lunch,” he said. A spokesman for the Taliban, Zabihullah Mujahid, said the death toll was far higher than the official figure and that no insurgents had been present at the gathering, which was strictly religious in nature. Many Taliban commanders are also mullahs. “Bombing civilians and then calling them mujahedeen is a habit of the Americans and their slaves,” Mujahid said, add- ing that 150 people had died in the military strike. “Those responsible for killing civilians and insulting religion will be brought to justice.” Separately in the southern Helmand province, at least 48 schoolgirls fell ill Monday in what provincial authorities suspect is a case of mass poisoning, the AP reported. Dr. Nisar Ahmad Barak said the girls were admitted to his hospital in Lashkar Gah with headaches and vomiting, but were in stable condition. He did not have any details. Ahmad Bilal Haqbeen, dep- uty director at Helmand’s education department, said the girls attend 11th grade at the city’s Central Girls School. He said an investigation is underway. Both officials said the girls were deliberately poisoned. Most of Helmand province is under control of the Taliban, who oppose girls’ education. The US military is racing to demonstrate it is making progress in Afghanistan during a critical period that will test President Trump’s strategy, The Washington Post reported. Military leaders say the arrival of new troops and aircraft, along with a renewed mission to advise local operations more closely, will help reverse a Taliban resurgence that has exposed the fragility of the long American war. ‘‘This is not another year of the same thing we've been doing for 17 years,’’ General Joseph Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said during a tour of military facilities across Afghanistan last week. ‘‘This is a fundamentally different approach.’’ With an increased US force of about 15,000, focused largely on efforts to ensure Afghan troops can launch offensives against the Taliban, Dunford said that ‘‘the right people at the right level with the right training’’ are in place ahead of the 2018 fighting season, a sentiment repeated by other commanders. Yet looming over the battlefield push are questions about how long support can be sustained, given skepticism in Europe about an open-ended military effort and ambivalence from Trump about involvement in foreign wars. The stepped-up campaign comes as the main force behind Trump’s Afghanistan strategy, national security adviser H.R. McMaster, prepares to exit the White House. His successor, John Bolton, may be a less ardent proponent of a stepped-up US campaign.

ASSOCIATED PRESS SAN JOSE, Costa Rica — Voters gave a resounding no to an evangelical pastor who rose to political prominence by campaigning against same-sex marriage, allowing Costa Rica’s governing party to win an easy presidential victory. While polls had indicated Sunday’s runoff would be tight, it wasn’t. Carlos Alvarado, a novelist and former Cabinet minister running for the ruling Citizen Action Party, won by a wide margin. The Supreme Electoral Council said that with 95 percent of ballots counted late Sunday, Carlos Alvarado had 60.8 percent of the votes, and evangelical Fabricio Alvarado of the National Restoration party had 39.2 percent. The two men are not related. Fabricio Alvarado had been viewed as political also-ran when he entered the presiden- tial contest, though he enjoyed high name recognition for his evangelism and for working on one of Costa Rica’s main TV newscasts. But he spoke out strongly against a call by the InterAmerican Court of Human Rights for Costa Rica to allow same-sex marriage, and he finished first in the election’s first round in February. Carlos Alvarado, who finished second to get the final spot in the runoff, spoke in favor of letting gays wed. The victor wrote in his Twitter account, ‘‘Let’s celebrate our 200 years of Independence with a government worthy and up to date with the times.

The Boko Haram militants tried to enter the center of Maidugiri, the provincial capital of Borno state, but army soldiers repelled them, gunning down six armed insurgents and seven suicide bombers, army spokesman Colonel Onyema Nwachukwu said. At least 83 people were injured and are receiving medical attention, he said. Residents of Maiduguri retreated to their homes Sunday night during an hours-long battle marked by thunderous explosions and gunfire. Troops prevented the insurgents from entering the center of Maiduguri, but they detonated their bombs in the outlying villages of Bille Shuwa and Alikaranti, with one soldier among the 15 casualties, Nwachukwu said. Nwachukwu warned residents to remain watchful and report any suspicious people or activity to security officials. A 14-year-old Boko Haram insurgent surrendered to soldiers after escaping an extremist enclave on the Lake Chad islands, he said. Survivors of the attack said most of those killed by the suicide bombs were youths who were targeted when they fled after hearing gunfire between the soldiers and the Boko Haram fighters. Boko Haram has killed more than 20,000 people in its nine-year effort to establish Shariah law in Nigeria. ASSOCIATED PRESS A4 The World T h e B o s t o n G l o b e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 Kremlin says Trump offered to host Putin visit Subdued Invitation report fuels controversy over March call By Anton Troianovski WASHINGTON POST MOSCOW — President Tr u m p p r o p o s e d m e e t i n g Vladimir Putin at the White House in a recent phone call, the Kremlin said Monday, fueling a controversy over Trump’s friendly tone toward the Russian leader amid mounting tensions with the West. After the March 20 phone call — in which Trump congratulated Putin for a reelection victory in a vote widely criticized as not free and fair — Trump said the two leaders had discussed plans for a possible meeting. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that ‘‘a number of potential venues, including the White House,’’ were discussed for the summit. A Kremlin aide, Yury Ushakov, disclosed the invitation in comments to Russian journalists Monday. But he added that no preparations have been made, according to Russian news agencies. Relations between Moscow and the West have been in a free fall since the nerve-agent poisoning of a former Russian double agent and his daughter in Britain on March 4. British authorities have linked the attack to Russia, setting in motion reciprocal actions that have included expulsions of Russian diplomats from the United States, European Union countries, and elsewhere. ‘‘I hope that the Americans will not back away from their own proposal to discuss the possibility of holding a summit,’’ Ushakov said, according to state news agency RIA Novosti. ‘‘When our presidents spoke on the phone, it was Trump who proposed holding the first meeting in Washington, in the White House,’’ he said. Ushakov’s claim adds new detail to a presidential phone call that drew broad criticism last month. Trump congratulated Putin even though many international observers described Putin’s reelection as a sham, and despite the advice of White House advisers that he not offer congratulations. ‘‘As the president himself confirmed on March 20, hours after his last call with President MIKHAIL KLIMENTYEV/SPUTNIK/FILE 2017 Vladimir Putin conferred with President Trump in Vietnam in November, their second meeting since the US election. Putin, the two had discussed a bilateral meeting in the ‘nottoo-distant future’ at a number of potential venues, including the White House,’’ Sanders said Monday after Ushakov’s comments. ‘‘We have nothing further to add at this time.’’ After the phone call, Trump also drew condemnation at home and abroad for failing to raise the poisoning of the former spy, Sergei Skripal, and his daughter. The Kremlin denies it had anything to do with the nerve-agent attack. Skripal and his daughter Yulia remain hospitalized. Relations between Moscow and Washington have taken a further plunge since that phone call, as the West has sought to punish Russia for the Skripal poisoning. The United States and Russia traded diplomat expulsions and consulate closings, while US allies that expelled Russian diplomats in solidarity also faced in-kind retaliation from Moscow. Relations between Washington and Moscow also have been strained by other issues, including the ongoing investigation of Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election and intelligence reports suggesting that such in- terference might continue in the midterm election season. Given the worsening environment, Kremlin aide Ushakov said Monday, ‘‘it is, of course, difficult to discuss the possibility of holding a summit,’’ Russia’s Interfax news agency reported. ‘‘I hope that the situation will allow us to discuss this issue,’’ Ushakov added, referring to the planning for a Trump-Putin summit, according to Interfax. ‘‘We believe that it is rather important and necessary for both countries and for the entire international community.’’ Since Trump became president, the two have met at the Group of 20 summit in Germany last July and, briefly, at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam in November. Trump drew criticism when he met at the White House with Ru s s i a n Fo r ei g n Mi n i s t e r Sergey Lavrov last May, a day after he fired former FBI director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into the president’s links to Russia. The White House didn’t let US reporters witness the meeting, which was also attended by Russia’s then US ambassador, Sergey Kislyak. Crackdown, strike follow deadly clashes, protests in Kashmir Students demand end of Indian rule over territory By Aijaz Hussain ASSOCIATED PRESS SRINAGAR, India — A security clampdown and a strike sponsored by separatists fighting against Indian rule shut down most of Indian-administered Kashmir on Monday, a day after protests and fierce fighting killed 16 combatants and four civilians. Armed police and paramilitary soldiers in riot gear fanned out across the region and patrolled streets in anticipation of anti-India protests and clashes. Authorities also imposed a curfew in some towns in southern Kashmir and in the old parts of the disputed region’s main city of Srinagar, the urban center of protests and clashes against Indian rule. Shops and businesses closed in other areas where no security restrictions were in place. Separatist leaders who challenge India’s sovereignty over Kashmir called for a shutdown on Monday and Tuesday to protest the killings. Authorities shut schools and colleges and canceled university exams in an attempt to stop protests by students. Despite the suspension of classes, anti-India protests erupted at the University of Kashmir, where many students gathered in the main campus in Srinagar and shouted slogans such as ‘‘Go India, go back’’ and demanded an end of Indian rule over the region. In addition to halting train services in the most restive towns, officials cut cellphone Internet access in those towns and reduced connection speeds in other parts of the Kashmir Valley, a common government practice aimed at calming tensions and preventing anti-India demonstrations from being organized. Troops laid steel barricades and razor wire on roads and intersections to cut off neighborhoods as authorities anticipated widespread protests. At least 13 rebels and three Indian army soldiers were killed in Sunday’s fighting in three gun battles in southern Kashmir, where a new generation of rebels has revived militancy and challenged New Delhi’s rule with guns and effective use of social media. As the fighting raged, large anti-India protests erupted in several parts of Indian-controlled Kashmir and at least four civilians were killed and dozens injured. Residents said government troops fired into the crowds of mostly young protesters, causing injuries. They also said one of the civilians who died in southern Shopian near a gunbattle on Sunday was being used as a human shield against rebels by the Indian army. An army officer, who declined to be named in keeping with army regulations, rejected the accusation and said the civilian was killed in the crossfire with insurgents. In the past, such allegations have rarely been probed, and some accused military officials have been rewarded.

As Gaza toll climbs to 18, Israel sets inquiry on response By Fares Akram ASSOCIATED PRESS GAZA CITY — Israel’s military rejected new allegations Monday of unlawful use of force against unarmed Palestinians during mass protests in Gaza last week, as the Palestinian death toll rose to 18. Israeli troops prevented a mass breach of the border fence and an attempt by Gaza’s militant group Hamas to ‘‘drag us into a catastrophe,’’ said Brigadier General Ronen Manelis, an army spokesman. He denied soldiers acted unlawfully, but said mistakes might have been made and will be investigated. Israel’s defense minister had previously rejected international calls for an independent investigation. Hamas, which organized Friday’s mass march, has not said if the final aim of future protests — to be staged off and on for the next six weeks — is a mass breach of the border fence. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh on Sunday hinted at an escalation, saying last Friday’s protests had a ‘‘limit,’’ but that it’s not clear where that limit would be next time. In Friday’s march, thousands of Palestinians headed toward the border area along several points from the north to the south of Gaza. Smaller groups moved closer to the border fence, throwing stones, hurling firebombs, or burning tires. Manelis alleged Monday that Hamas staged the mass march as a cover for attacks. He said there were five attempts to cross the fence, including with cutters, and that three explosives were planted. He said at least 11 of those killed were members of militant groups, including two who opened fire on soldiers near the border, but would not say how the others were killed. He defined actions near the fence as terrorism, including throwing stones and burning tires. would have scrapped a plan to send the migrants back to their home countries, an approach that had been widely maligned at home and abroad. ‘‘It’s a good agreement,’’ Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said hours before sus- An Israeli official said Hamas staged the Gaza march as a cover for attacks. In a separate development Monday, Israel suspended a deal with the United Nations to resettle tens of thousands of African migrants in Western nations and allow the rest to remain in the country. The deal was intended to resolve an issue that has divided Israel for the past decade. It pending the deal. ‘‘It enables us to solve this problem in a way that serves, protects the interests of the state of Israel and gives a solution to the residents of southern Tel Aviv and other neighborhoods, and also for the people who came into Israel.’’ But later in the day Netanyahu said he was suspending im- plementation so he can discuss the plan further with Israeli residents of south Tel Aviv on Tuesday. Israel is home to roughly 35,000 African migrants, most of them from Eritrea and Sudan. The Israeli military’s openfire policies came under more scrutiny as amateur videos emerged purportedly showing two Palestinians being shot in Gaza — one killed and one wounded — while not posing any apparent threat to soldiers. In one video posted on social media, a young man later identified as Abdelfatah Abdelnabi is seen being fatally shot from behind while carrying a tire as he ran away from the border. Manelis said the man in the video ‘‘had carried out acts of terror along the fence for several hours,’’ an apparent reference to the burning of tires. military drills for S. Korea US, ally seek to foster diplomacy By Hyung-Jin Kim ASSOCIATED PRESS SEOUL — The war games being conducted this week by the United States and South Korean militaries have an unusually low-key approach. For the time being, the allies have resisted bringing in some major armaments such as bombers and aircraft carriers and the North has avoided its usual belligerent propaganda against exercises that it claims are an invasion rehearsal. The reason is that both Washington and Seoul are interested in nurturing a diplomatic outreach by North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong Un, after months of weapons tests and threats of nuclear war by the North. This year’s drills come ahead of two historic summits between Kim and his South Korean and American counterparts. On Sunday, the first day of the drills, Kim did not promise to destroy Seoul but attended a concert in Pyongyang of visiting South Korean pop singers, clapping his hands and asking for more such performances. This year’s exercises were postponed because of the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, where the Koreas worked out a series of rapprochement steps, including parading together behind a single flag during the opening ceremony and fielding a unified women’s hockey team. Seoul and Washington both publicly say the training this time will be similar to previous years. But South Korean defense officials say there are no immediate plans to bring in US aircraft carriers, powerful bombers, or other strategic assets that have been deployed in and around the Korean Peninsula during past drills. The North loathes such American weapons. The two sets of drills, one field-training and the other computer-simulated, typically run for two months, but this year’s exercises are scheduled to last for just one month. The allies also have no immediate plans to publicize the training, according to Seoul’s Defense Ministry. North Korea’s state media haven’t said anything about the drills since their start. Even if there is some criticism later, it will probably be milder than past warlike rhetoric, which often saw daily threats to launch nuclear strikes on Seoul and Washington or void the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War. Kim told visiting South Korean officials last month that he ‘‘understands’’ the drills will take place and expressed hope that they’ll be modified once the situation on the peninsula stabilizes, according to the South Korean government. While diplomacy holds, it’s also unlikely that North Korea will test any weapons, as it has during past drills. Such tests could endanger the North’s outreach and crush the current rapprochement. South Korea’s Defense Ministry said Monday that it hadn’t detected any suspicious activities by the North Korean military. Kim’s planned meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on April 27 will occur around the time the US-South Korean drills end. T he mee ting will be the third-ever inter-Korean summit since the Koreas’ 1945 division. It is crucial because it may offer insight about what nuclear disarmament steps Kim could offer and what concessions the allies might be willing to provide. It is unlikely that Kim will completely give up his nuclear ambitions. Only last year he claimed to have functional nuclear missiles targeting the entire US mainland, though foreign experts believe the North hasn’t perfected such missiles. T h e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 B o s t o n G l o b e The Region A5 State Police overhaul eliminates troubled troop unit uSTATE POLICE Continued from Page A1 eral scandals, including an investigation that officials say found 29 active and retired troopers in Troop E had filed for overtime shifts in 2016 that they never actually worked. Attorney General Maura Healey has launched a criminal investigation into the allegations, and Gilpin has expanded an internal audit to examine troopers’ overtime use over a three-year period. The colonel disclosed Monday that State Police would also begin auditing the department’s top 50 earners on a quarterly basis to flag any questionable payouts. In response, the department now intends to shutter Troop E — which has been tasked with patrolling the Massachusetts Turnpike — and disperse the 129 troopers there to other troops around the state. Gilpin said the agency has thus far found no evidence of overtime abuse in other units. “The Massachusetts State Police has a long and honorable history. . . . That history, that reputation, has been tarnished,” said Baker, who added that those who have violated department rules should also be in danger of losing retirement benefits. Under state law, public officials are in danger of having their pensions stripped if they’re convicted of a crime linked to their official duties. “If it’s up to me, I’d take it away — period,” Baker said. “As far as I’m concerned, that’s stealing. And no one who sits in one of these public positions should steal — period. You learn that when you’re in second grade. What we’re talking about here is sworn officers of the law.” While Baker and Gilpin outlined various changes they intend to make, key details appear to be unsettled. Baker said he directly ordered Gilpin to activate what’s known as Automatic Vehicle Locator technology to track troopers’ cruisers during their SUZANNE KREITER/GLOBE STAFF Governor Charlie Baker also suggested that troopers who violated pay rules should lose retirement benefits. shifts. State Police officials originally said the department has had the capability of doing so through laptops installed in every marked cruiser, but neither Baker nor Gilpin could explain why it wasn’t used. But David Procopio, a State Police spokesman, said hours later that while State Police had the hardware for the GPS technology, it doesn’t have the corresponding software. He said State Police have “begun the process of purchasing” it and hope to have it operating within 30 days. Procopio also released a copy of a June 2015 draft order on body cameras that Gilpin referred to during the press conference but was never put into policy. It outlines broad details of a body camera program, but Procopio said that it “does not necessarily reflect what our new body camera policy will ultimately look like.” One point of contention is how the Seaport will be pa- port is policed would require legislation, and Gilpin did not directly address a question of whether the State Police was willing to cede some of its control there. port District to ensure that all residents have access to the same police services as the rest of the city.” The Globe reported last week that neither the State Po- ‘Let’s face it, 99 percent of the guys on the job right now are doing their job, day in, day out. . . .

For years, troopers have fought Boston police to maintain their exclusive right to have Troop F patrol Massport property along the South Boston waterfront. Baker aides said it was unclear if changes to how the Sea- City seeks to raise fines to ease traffic, fund alternatives to cars “We’ll be looking at all angles,” she said.

The departments later reached an agreement in which the troopers would be paid directly by the State Police and the data would go online. Gilpin said State Police did a “high-level audit” of the troop and found no “wrongdoing.” The Globe also disclosed last month that 245 troopers — or about 12 percent of the force — made more than $200,000 last year, often by working long overtime shifts or taking on multiple details directing traffic or providing security at special events. In his own afternoon press conference, Dana Pullman — president of the State Police Association of Massachusetts, the union representing troopers and sergeants — didn’t address whether the union would oppose the various changes but said he feels that many changes should be hashed out at the collective bargaining table and not done as a “knee-jerk” reaction. “Let’s face it, 99 percent of the guys on the job right now are doing their job, day in, day out,” he said. Pullman expressed specific skepticism about the GPS monitoring: “to characterize the entire job as needing this type of thing, I don’t agree.” State Police said Monday they also intend to more stringently vet potential hires by adding language to a questionnaire that candidates disclose whether they have ever been “connected to a criminal investigation,” even if they weren’t charged. It comes in direct response to the 2014 hiring of Leigha Genduso, who testified in federal court in 2007 about how she helped her live-in boyfriend deal marijuana and hide evidence, the Globe reported. A year later, she was hired as a dispatcher by the State Police and then joined law enforcement in 2014 as a trooper. Genduso has since been placed on paid administrative leave.

Call to Schedule 617-910-3524 uTRANSIT Continued from Page A1 a transit coordinator, to work closely with the state-run Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority on improvements such as more bus-only lanes or signal technology that would allow buses to move through traffic faster. Four additional staffers would manage the bus lanes on a day-to-day basis. Boston is planning to test its first dedicated bus lane in a decade this spring along Washington Street in Roslindale, by eliminating parking spaces in the inbound lane during the morning rush hour. A two-day trial last year made it clear the city needs more people to manage the bus lanes, said Boston Transportation Commissioner Gina Fiandaca. Chris Dempsey, who leads the advocacy group Transportation for Massachusetts, praised the plan to hire a transit coordinator. He recently visited Seattle, which has a city employee working closely on transit issues with the county government. “In Seattle, the employees really felt that even though they didn’t operate the buses they had the responsibility for the buses operating faster on their streets,” he said. Another new position would include developing designated pick-up and drop-off spots for ride-hailing companies in busy parts of the city. City officials have said this might cut down on the number of vehicles blocking traffic, though it would not directly address the sheer volume of ridehailing cars adding to the city’s congestion. Motorists would see some benefit, such as $2 million for road resurfacing and improvements to the city’s 800 traffic signals. Two planners would be hired to help redesign the city’s intersections to make them safer for pedestrians, and the city would boost funding for biking and pedestrian infrastructure. DAVID L. RYAN/GLOBE STAFF/FILE The Walsh administration hopes increased parking fines would fund more biking options in Boston. Last year, Walsh released “Go Boston 2030,” a master plan that outlined dozens of transportation priorities, many of which centered on public transit, cycling, and walking improvements to reduce car congestion. But he was slow to put the plan into action, critics have said. And the mayor himself has fueled criticism; he once declared himself “a car guy,” upset cyclists when he said they share blame for accidents with drivers, and expressed skepticism on the efficacy of bus lanes. Osgood, however, said the new budget measures shows Go Boston 2030 is moving from ideas to implementation. Some car owners will probably feel Walsh’s new measures in the pocketbook. Boston would seek to hire a new supervisor to beef up parking enforcement and increase parking fines for the first time in a decade. Osgood said the increases would be for 11 types of violations that residents complain about most. The penalty for double parking in downtown neighborhoods would increase from $45 to $75; parking during street cleaning would yield a $90 fine, more than double the current $40 cost; parking in a residentonly spot without a sticker would rise to $60, from $40; while overstaying a me ter would shoot to $40, from $25. The $5 million spending initiative and the increased park- ing fines will both require approval from the City Council. Andrea Campbell, the president of the council, said she would review the plan but had not yet seen it. Councilor Michelle Wu said it had her support. “Traffic and congestion are not givens we have to live with,” Wu said. “They’re a direct result of our policy choices and infrastructure and design choices.” Adam Vaccaro can be reached at email@example.com.

It was his second consecutive day of using Twitter to rail against the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, saying it was being exploited amid lax border security. Later, surrounded by children on the South Lawn of the White House for the annual Easter egg roll, Trump lashed out again about the program, saying that Democrats had abandoned the immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children and have benefited from DACA. “The Democrats have really let them down, they’ve really let them down,” Trump said in response to a question shouted by a reporter, as young children crowded around him at a picnic table where he was signing their artwork. “Now people are taking advantage of DACA,” Trump went on. “It should have never happened.” In his Twitter messages, Trump urged the Congress to use the ‘‘nuclear option’’ to get a border security law passed — changing Senate rules for ending filibusters. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has dismissed that option in the Sotomayor calls move alarming By Adam Liptak NEW YORK TIMES SHAWN THEW/EUROPEAN PRESSPHOTO AGENCY President Trump and his daughter Tiffany welcomed children taking part in the White House Easter egg roll Monday. past, saying Republicans will welcome the filibuster option if they return to being a minority. The House and the Senate — both controlled by Republicans — are in recess. The president vented about the failure of bipartisan talks to enshrine DACA’s protections in law. The negotiations became necessary after Trump moved last fall to end the program, which had been created unilaterally by then-President Obama. Those deliberations have gone nowhere despite Trump’s stated willingness to provide a path to citizenship for nearly 2 million immigrants who could be considered eligible. D e m o c r a t s o ff e r e d l a s t month to provide $25 billion for the wall that Trump advocates, in exchange for such an exten- sion, but White House officials rejected the deal, demanding more measures to curb legal and illegal immigration. The $1.3 trillion funding package Congress passed last month included $1.6 billion in border wall spending. But much of that money can be used only to repair existing segments, not build new sections. The White House and the Department of Homeland Security lashed out in February against a bipartisan proposal to codify DACA protections that they said would have eviscerated immigration enforcement for people arriving in the United States before June 2018. The measure included a provision directing the department to prioritize the removal of “criminal aliens,” people posing a national security threat and people entering the country illegally after June 30. Kirstjen Nielsen, the homeland security secretary, briefed Trump on the migration situation last week after returning from a trip to Mexico to meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto and other top Mexican officials Trump was concerned by what he heard. That was part of the reason Trump spent part of his Easter Sunday complaining on Twitter about “caravans” of immigrants heading north toward the USMexico border, they said. But the posts also came after the Fox News Channel, the president’s favorite, reported on a group of hundreds of Central Americans that has been traveling through Mexico to- ward the United States, where some hope to seek asylum or sneak across the border. On Monday, Trump again referred to “large caravans of people” and repeated his calls for Mexico to enforce border security laws. Meanwhile, the Trump administration has introduced production quotas for immigration judges in an effort to reduce enormous court backlogs, raising concern among judges and attorneys that decisions may be unfairly rushed. The Justice Department said judges must complete 700 cases a year to earn a satisfactory grade. The standards take effect Oct. 1. Material from the Associated Press was used in this report. Women running for office break decorum to woo votes uWOMEN CANDIDATES Continued from Page A1 “This year we have women that are running very boldly, and they typically are in districts where they feel like campaigning boldly as a woman will grab attention during this very chaotic, very partisan political environment,” said Dianne Bystrom, director of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics at Iowa State University. While few candidates link their campaigns directly to the #MeToo movement, many seem to be emboldened by it, sensing that in a moment when women everywhere are speaking their minds, the women running for office can, too. Some are presenting themselves in ways that, just a few years ago, a lady wouldn’t have dared. In an online video, Katie Hill, a 30-year-old first-time candidate running for Congress in a district north of Los Angeles, details her wrenching deliberations over whether to end an unplanned pregnancy with a supportive partner. Before she released the video, she showed it to a group of eight women who had already been elected to Congress. “They were like, ‘You can’t,’ ” Hill, a Democrat, said in an interview. “They were nice about it. They were like, ‘It’s a really powerful story. It’s just a big risk and you don’t need to take it.’ But I feel like I do.” Whether it’s advisable for a woman to wield her gender as an asset this election cycle depends on factors particular to her campaign — the demographic makeup of the district’s electorate, the field, the circumstances. Longshot candidates often use attention-grabbing ads to boost name recognition despite dim hopes of victory. “Obviously, if you’re a challenger, you have to take more risks. You have to do more attention-grabbing; you have to use things that set you apart,” said Bystrom. Typically, feminist appeals are far more common from Democrats, she noted. But Martha McSally, a Republican House member running for Senate, has one of the boldest Justices void case on police shooting ads out there, telling “Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries,” while touting her tough qualifications and saying she “refused to bow down to Sharia law.” The first US female pilot to fly in combat, she sued the Air Force to change a policy requiring US servicewomen in Saudi Arabia to wear traditional Muslim headscarves. A Trump ally, McSally is positioning herself as a renegade Republican in the race to replace Jeff Flake – and possibly determine control of the narrowly divided Senate. Maggie Hassan advertised their roles as mothers, along with their policy stances. Now, female candidates are putting forth “new images of what we see as normal,” and “pushing boundaries,” said Kelly Dittmar, assistant professor of political science at Rutgers University Camden and a scholar at the Center for American Women and Politics. “It expands voters’ notions of what we deem as appropriate and acceptable, and then it also allows for women to use their gender as a value-added, as a Awards, when performers highlighted sexual misconduct in their industry. Dana Nessel’s provocative ad for Michigan attorney general suggests that “men are the problem,” Dittmar noted, rather than blaming the problem of sexual misconduct on broader, institutional power dynamics. “I’m not sure that’s the best strategy,” said Dittmar. “There’s a question about how this resonates with male and female voters,” Dittmar said. “Does it feel like you’re attacking men?” Amanda Renteria, a Democratic candidate for California governor, has said a male frontrunner should step aside because of an affair. AMANDA RENTERIA Since women are so underrepresented in politics — less than one-fifth of Congress — they can be viewed as outsiders by a restless electorate clamoring for turnover, Bystrom noted. “If you look at an overall strategy for women over the last several cycles, they are seen a s a ge n t s o f c h a n ge ,” s a i d Bystrom. “That’s something they can run on, either from the left or the right.” She pointed to the 2014 ad that famously catapulted Iowa Republican Joni Ernst to US Senate. The newcomer touted her three roles — as “mother, soldier, conservative” — and made a jarring reference to castration. (“I grew up castrating hogs on an Iowa farm,” she said, “so when I get to Washington, I’ll know how to cut pork.”) By 2016, when two established female candidates faced off in the New Hampshire race for US Senate, both Republican Kelly Ayotte and Democrat credential, as one among many merits that they bring to officeholding,” Dittmar said. That also holds true for LGBTQ candidates, she noted. In Massachusetts, Alexandra Chandler, a transgender woman, is running in the crowded field for the Third Congressional District with a campaign video that highlights not just her background in naval intelligence but also her wedding to her wife. Not everything works, and some approaches could be cringe-inducing or outright alienating. In Illinois, Sol Flores lost a bid for Congress last month after running an ad set in her childhood bedroom where she was molested by someone staying with her family. “I’ll fight as hard for you in Congress as I did to protect myself,” Flores, a Democrat, said in the spot, which was timed to air the night of the Academy Expect more groundbreaking videos to come. A Baltimore activist has created a Vote Me Too PAC to convert small donations into slick campaign ads for female candidates who champion such issues as protecting women from sexual violence. Sarah Sherman, a 42-year-old mother of twins, decided that she and her husband, who makes videos for a living, should put their skills to work for promising politicians. While fund-raising and identifying candidates to support, the Vote Me Too PAC is launching edgy ads on social media. (“51 percent of our population has a vagina. 81 percent of members of Congress don’t have vaginas. Why is this a problem?” one spot asks. “Because it leads to a culture where sexual discrimination & sexual violence are tolerated.”) In California, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Amanda Renteria released a cam- paign video showing women wearing pussyhats at last year’s Women’s March on Washington. “People are saying ‘Time’s up,’ and ‘Enough’s enough,’ ” she says. “We’re quickly turning a corner where people are saying this stuff matters. Personal conduct matters.” She soon made it an issue in her fledgling campaign for governor, demanding that the male front-runner step aside over sexual misconduct — an affair he acknowledged with an aide more than a decade earlier. That front-runner, who has not stepped down, is Gavin Newsom, the lieutenant governor and a fellow Democrat whose spokesman derided Renteria’s effort as a “brazen and self-serving political stunt.” Renteria is okay with “brazen.” (She noted in an interview that she has never been a shrinking violet, and that she asked her future husband to marr y her while they were shown on the Jumbotron at a Red Sox game.) She was also the national political director for Hillary Clinton’s cautious-to-a-fault presidential campaign, and she is not mincing words now. “Now is not a time for cautiousness. Now is not a time to poll-test how you feel or whether you think other people will think you’re right about this,” Renteria said. While Renteria has been criticized as opportunistic for targeting Newsom and highlighting her own #MeToo story, she doesn’t worry so much when her mentors — who see her taking on a popular fellow Democrat — question her strategy. “We’re done with the days where we have to be silent, where we’re putting our career or our own truth at odds with each other,” said Renteria. “For some folks it might be a little scary that a woman is now on the stage . . . and wants to talk about uncomfor table things,” Renteria added. “The exact conversation we need to be having right now is the uncomfortable conversation.” Stephanie Ebbert can be reached at Stephanie.Ebbert @globe.com. WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Monday ruled for an Arizona police officer who shot a woman outside her home in Tucson. The court’s decision was unsigned and issued without full briefing and oral argument, an indication that the majority found the case to be easy. But in an impassioned dissent, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the majority had gone badly astray. “Its deci sion is not jus t wrong on the law; it also sends an alarming signal to law enforcement officers and the public,” she wrote. “It tells officers that they can shoot first and think later, and it tells the public that palpably unreasonable conduct will go unpunished.” The case started in 2010 when three police officers responded to a 911 call reporting that a woman had been seen acting erratically by hacking at a tree with a knife. They saw Sharon Chadwick standing in the driveway of a house. A second woman, Amy Hughes, emerged from the house, holding a kitchen knife. She stopped 6 feet from Chadwick. Although the officers did not know it, the two women were roommates. Hughes was not moving, spoke calmly, held the knife at her side, and made no aggressive movements. Chadwick later said she did not feel threatened and that Hughes had appeared composed. The officers drew their guns and told Hughes to drop the knife, but it is not clear that she heard them. Officer Andrew Kisela opened fire, shooting Hughes four times. Screaming and bleeding, Hughes asked, “ Why ’d you shoot me?” She survived and sued the officer for using excessive force. The US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, in San Francisco, allowed the case to proceed. The Supreme Court reversed that ruling, saying that Kisela was entitled to qualified immunity, a doctrine that shields officials from suits over violations of constitutional rights that were not clearly established at the time of the conduct in question. The majority did not decide whether Kisela’s actions violated the Constitution, but it did say there was no clear precedent that would have alerted him that opening fire in what he said was an effort to protect Chadwick amounted to unconstitutionally excessive force. In d i s s e n t , S o t o m a y o r, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, said the majority’s reasoning was perplexing. “Hughes was nowhere near the officers, had committed no illegal act, was suspected of no crime, and did not raise the knife in the direction of Chadwick or anyone else,” Sotomayor wrote, adding that only one officer had opened fire. Sotomayor said a jury should have been allowed to decide the case. “Because Kisela plainly lacked any legitimate interest justifying the use of deadly force against a woman who posed no objective threat of harm to officers or others, had committed no crime, and appeared calm and collected during the police encounter,” Sotomayor wrote, “he was not entitled to qualified immunity.” In a separate case Monday, the Supreme Court rejected an appeal from American victims of terrorist attacks in the Middle East more than a decade ago.

T h e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 B o s t o n G l o b e Nation/Region A7 At Memphis MLK event, Holder alludes to ‘bullies, bigots’ Exattorney general appears to refer to Trump in speech By Adrian Sainz ASSOCIATED PRESS MEMPHIS — Despite advances the country has made since the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was slain while fighting poverty and racism, ‘‘the age of bullies and bigots is not fully behind us,’’ former attorney general Eric Holder said Monday. The remark was one of two thinly veiled references to President Trump that Holder made during his appearance at a symposium on the first of three days of events commemorating the 50th anniversary of King’s assassination. King was supporting striking sanitation workers when he came to Memphis in 1968. He was talking with friends on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel on April 4 when he was shot and killed. Museums, colleges, and activists have organized three days of marches, speeches, and conferences to remember King and his legacy. Holder, King’s daughter Bernice King, and a group of ministers toured the National Civil Rights Museum on Monday. Holder, who was the first black US attorney general, spoke at a symposium sponsored by the University of Memphis and the museum. He was introduced by Senator Doug Jones, an Alabama Democrat who won a special election in December. Holder said he is proud that the nation has made progress in the past 50 years achieving racial, social and economic justice. He said women, minorities, students against gun violence, and members of the LGBTQ community have been inspired by King’s nonviolent protests and have launched movements calling for ‘‘fairness, opportunity, and justice.’’ But in remarks that appeared to reference Trump without mentioning his name, Holder also noted that King’s dream of equality for all has not been reached. ‘‘We’re still marching, we are still striving, and we’re still calling on our nation’s leaders to act with a sense of justice, compassion, and common humanity,’’ Holder said. ‘‘ The unfortunate fact is that in 2018, America’s long struggle to overcome injustice, to eliminate disparities and eradicate violence, has not yet ended, and the age of bullies and bigots is not fully behind us,’’ he added. Holder said he has spoken with young people who feel lost in their own country and are ‘‘fearful that America’s toolongstanding divisions are threatening to tear our nation apart.’’ Holder said he is concerned with gun violence, the disproportional incarceration of young black men, and uneven educational opportunities for minorities. King’s legacy includes the lesson that ‘‘it is necessary to be indignant, and to be impatient, so that it impels us to take action,’’ Holder said. Holder asked the crowd of hundreds to do more to help realize King’s dream of racial and social equality and come together to ‘‘heal this divided nation.’’ 71 lawyers urge judge to reject US bid to disqualify Joyce attorney uCOOPER Continued from Page A1 federal prosecutors to remove Howard M. Cooper, a veteran defense attorney representing Joyce in a public corruption case. Prosecutors have said Joyce “entangled” Cooper in a coverup in the two years before his December 2017 indictment on corruption charges, and they plan to call the lawyer to testify at trial. Cooper has a conflict of interest because he “was a participant in, and has first-hand knowledge of,” key events at issue in the case, prosecutors allege. Joyce’s lawyers counter that prosecutors have acknowledged they have no evidence Cooper knowingly participated in any wrongdoing. The ACLU, the Massachusetts Bar Association, and the Massachusetts Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, which together wrote the brief, said Cooper has done what any attorney would do: defend his client. “A decision for the government would have a chilling effect on attorney advocacy,” the brief stated. “Clients should be free to have their counsel make . . . arguments zealously without undue concern that the advocacy will force counsel off the case in the event of a criminal charge.” A spokeswoman for US Attorney Andrew Lelling declined to comment on the brief. Joyce, a lawyer who served as assistant Senate majority leader, faces 113 counts of corruption and racketeering. Federal prosecutors say he received $1 million in bribes and kickbacks laundered through his Canton law office. After his arrest in December, the prosecutors sought to have Cooper disqualified. That raised alarm among lawyers, who compared the tactics to those used by federal prosecutors in the 1980s, when defense attorneys were subpoenaed to testify against their own clients in grand jury investigations, said Martin Healy, chief legal counsel of the Massachusetts Bar Association. “We’re seeing this as a return to the old days of trying to silence the defense bar and disrupt an attorney who is trying to defend his client,” he said. “It certainly is something that has disturbed the legal community.” The brief accuses prosecutors of violating Joyce’s Sixth Amendment right to counsel. It was filed in support of Joyce’s lawyers, who filed their own request Monday asking Gorton to reject the prosecution’s motion. That motion, filed in late February, stated that Cooper submitted a series of false documents to the State Ethics Commission and The Boston Globe on Joyce’s behalf in 2015 and 2016 when the then-senator was fighting accusations that Donuts coffee that Joyce had received for free, prosecutors said. Cooper told the commission that Joyce had paid full price for the coffee, which Joyce then gave out as Christmas gifts, according to federal prosecutors Dustin Chao and William F. Bloomer. In March 2017, prosecutors tried to force Cooper to testify that prosecutors may be using their subpoena power to turn “defense counsel into a witness.” Since then, “the government has not shown any reason to believe that Cooper did anything, or failed to do anything, except what his ethical duties allowed and even required of him,” Max Stern, one of Joyce’s lawyers, wrote in their motion. A decision to prevent Howard M. Cooper (left) from representing Brian A. Joyce in a public corruption case ‘would have a chilling effect on attorney advocacy.’ FRIEND-OF-THE-COURT BRIEF he had accepted free coffee f r o m D u n k i n’ D o n u t s a n d pushed the agenda of an insurance company on Beacon Hill that he had done legal work for and owned stock in. Joyce enlisted Cooper’s legal help to “conceal and perpetuate the ongoing criminal schemes,” effectively making Cooper a direct witness to Joyce’s duplicity, prosecutors said. Cooper submitted “false and misleading” answers to the Ethics Commission, including a backdated invoice for Dunkin’ before a grand jury that was investigating Joyce, according to court documents filed by Joyce’s lawyers Monday. “We’ve shown a reasonable basis for this court to find that Mr. Joyce used the services of Mr. Cooper to foster a crime here,” Bloomer said at a hearing before US District Court Judge William G. Young. “He’s the unknowing doof of this nefarious conduct,” prosecutors have said of Cooper. Young rejected the request, expressing “grave concerns” Defense lawyers typically rely on information provided by clients in preparing their cases and responses to allegations made in the press, the lawyers’ brief stated. Now that the case is headed to trial, prosecutors are asking Gorton, the judge assigned to the case, to have Cooper disqualified from representing Joyce. If Gorton grants the prosecution’s request, the consequences would be devastating for future criminal defendants, the groups argued. Clients “may be deprived of zealous advocacy if counsel believe that vigorous advocacy in other forums may result in add i t i o n a l c r i m i n a l c h a r ge s against the client, the attorney being called as a witness, or the client being forced to hire new counsel after the case is indicted,” the brief said. Nearly 20 former federal prosecutors signed the motion, including Paul V. Kelly, who was an assistant US attorney for 10 years and specializes in whitecollar criminal defense work. “The Sixth Amendment right to counsel is vitally important,” Kelly said. “The government needs to tread very carefully when it seeks to disqualify counsel. . . . It just seemed that here the procedural moves that were being made were very close to the line, or over the line.” Maria Cramer can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A8 Editorial T h e B o s t o n G l o b e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 Opinion BOSTONGLOBE.COM/OPINION Editorials State Police reforms: Off to a good start A fter a string of scandals at the Massachusetts State Police, Governor Charlie Baker announced a series of reforms on Monday aimed at restoring public confidence in the agency. The changes represent a first step in the right direction. The reforms start with the elimination of Troop E, the division in charge of patrolling the Mass. Pike. Thirty active or retired troopers in the division are being investigated for overtime abuse, including so-called phantom shifts, when they allegedly didn’t do any work but still collected pay. Officers currently assigned to Troop E will be reassigned. Colonel Kerry Gilpin, who took command of the force in November, after her predecessor and his deputy abruptly retired amid a different controversy, also revealed that the department is activating a GPS tracking system in all cruisers to track troopers. The feature, it turns out, was already installed in marked police cruisers. Neither Gilpin nor Baker knew why it hadn’t been activated already. But better late than never, especially if the feature helps prevent no-show shifts. The future of Troop F, meanwhile, remains unclear. That division, charged with patrolling Logan Airport and parts of the Seaport, was known as an especially lucrative posting among officers. Troopers were found to be making hundreds of thousands of dollars in overtime shifts, and eight troopers at Troop F had earned more than $1 million each since 2014. Until last week, the di- vision also had an unusual management structure, with pay coming from Massport instead of the State Police. Apparently, the reason why so many troopers were earning so much in overtime is that the troop itself is understaffed. The staffing at Logan is “down by 30 bodies,” she said. Gilpin said its staffing levels are being scrutinized. Hiring 30 more officers isn’t necessarily the solution, though: Reducing the troop’s responsibilities to match its current staffing levels should also be on the table. The rest of the reforms announced Monday — the creation of 10 new positions in the inspections and internal affairs sections at the department; quarterly public audits of the top 50 pay earners in the force; an independent audit to assess the agency’s overtime policies; and the development of a department-wide body camera program — are common-sense policies that will boost accountability, transparency, and oversight. But the agency also needs a culture shift, and for leaders to embrace transparency as a virtue. Baker and Gilpin should be pressing — or ordering — the agency to stop making it so difficult for the media and ordinary citizens to access records of police caught drunk driving or the birth dates of state troopers. Secrecy helped set the stage for the alleged abuses at the State Police, and a greater commitment to transparency might help prevent them in the future. SUZANNE KREITER/GLOBE STAFF Governor Charlie Baker and Massachusetts State Police Colonel Kerry Gilpin announce a series of reforms at the State House Monday. Sinclair’s silly stunt hints at deeper woes V iral videos are often frivolous and sometimes poisonous. But occasionally, they can be clarifying. Witness a montage released by the website Deadspin over the weekend, and viewed more than 7 million times as of Monday evening. It shows dozens of local television news anchors from all over the country, each employed by media giant Sinclair Broadcast Group, making the same exact speech to their millions of viewers — warning about “false news” and journalists “who use their platforms to push their own personal bias.” The announcement has the feel of state-run television, unmistakably echoing President Trump’s harangues against the media. Little surprise that he tweeted a defense of Sinclair, and an attack on “Fake News Networks,” on Monday morning as outrage spread. Already the largest owner of local television stations in the country, Sinclair is proposing a $3.9 billion purchase of Tribune Media’s 42 stations. Here in New England, that would mean the broadcaster, which already owns stations in Rhode Island and Maine, would have a presence in Connecticut — subjecting even more of the region’s viewers to the dubious “mustrun” segments Sinclair regularly foists on its affiliates. That’s not just speeches by anchors. There are also centrally produced stories, like one that ran suggesting voters shouldn’t back Hillary Clinton because of the Democratic Party’s proslavery history. The broadcaster’s political bias may not even be the most compelling reason to restrain its growth. Sinclair has a worrisome history of slashing staff and reducing local news coverage. And greater market power could mean bigger retransmission fees for cable companies — costs that would ultimately be passed on to the consumer. To their credit, Justice Department antitrust officials appear to be taking these issues seriously. But if the merger is to be blocked, the public will have to stay engaged — even if it’s through viral videos. AFP/GETTY IMAGES Chinese employees produce shoes for export at a factory in Shangrao, in China’s central Jiangxi province, March 28. Will China supplant US economic dominance? By Kenneth Rogoff A s China and the United States engage in their latest trade tussle, most economists take it as given that China will achieve global economic supremacy in the long run, no matter what happens now. After all, with four times as many people as the United States, and a determined program to catch up after centuries of technological stagnation, isn’t it inevitable that China will decisively take over the mantle of economic hegemon? I am not so sure. Many who see China’s huge labor force as a decisive advantage also worry that robots and artificial intelligence will eventually take away the majority of jobs, leaving most humans to while away their time engaged in leisure activities. And if robots and AI are the dominant drivers of production in the coming century, perhaps having too large a population to care for — especially one that needs to be controlled through limits on Internet and information access — will turn out to be more of a hindrance for China. The rapid aging of China’s population exacerbates the challenge. As the rising importance of robotics and AI blunts China’s manufacturing edge, the ability to lead in technology will become more important. Here, the current trend toward higher concentration of power and control in the central government, as opposed to the private sector, could hamstring China as the global economy reaches higher stages of development. The possibility that China might never supplant the United States as the world’s economic hegemon is the flip side of the technology and inequality problem. Everyone in the West is worrying about the future of work, but it is a bigger problem for the Chinese development model than for the American one. The United States needs to struggle with the problem of how to redistribute income internally, especially given highly concentrated ownership of new ideas and technology. But for China, there is the additional problem of how to extend its franchise as export superpower into the machine age. True, it is unlikely that President Trump’s huffing and puffing and bluffing will bring about a large-scale return of manufacturing jobs to the United States. But the United States has the potential to expand the size of its manufacturing base anyway, in terms of output if not jobs. After all, today’s high-tech factory floors produce far more with far fewer workers. And the robots and AI are coming not just in manu- facturing and driverless cars. Robo-doctors, robo-financial advisers, and robo-lawyers are just the tip of the iceberg in machine disruption of service-sector jobs. To be sure, China’s rise is hardly a mirage, and its heady success is not built on population size alone. India has a similar population (both around 1.3 billion people), but for now, at least, it trails far behind. Chinese leadership must be credited with doing a miraculous job of lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty and into the middle class. But China’s rapid growth has been driven mostly by technology catch-up and investment. And while China, unlike the Soviet Union, has shown vastly more competence in home-grown innovation — Chinese companies are already leading the way in the next generation of “5G” mobile networks, and its cyber warfare capacity is fully on par with the United States — keeping close to the cutting edge is not the same thing as defining it. China’s gains still come largely from adoption of Western technology and, in some cases, appropriation of intellectual property. Trump is hardly the first American president to complain on this score, and he is right to do so (though starting a trade war cannot be the solution). In the economy of the 21st century, other factors, including rule of law, as well as access to energy, arable land, and clean water, may also become increasingly important. China is following its own path and may yet prove that centralized systems can push development further and faster than anyone had imagined, far beyond simply being a growing middle-income country. But China’s global dominance is hardly the predetermined certainty that so many experts seem to assume. Yes, the United States faces vast challenges as well. For example, it must devise a way to retain dynamic technological growth while preventing excessive concentration of wealth and power. To be a hegemon, however, does not require being the world’s largest country — otherwise, England would never have ruled much of the world as it did for more than a century. China might win the silicon future if the US drops the ball, but it won’t become the dominant global power simply because it has a larger population. On the contrary, the coming machine age could tilt the playing filed decisively in favor of a much less populous but (until now) more innovative United States.

Bill O’Reilly and his employer had to pay out millions to settle multiple sexual harassment suits before corporate sponsors boycotted the show that the Fox News star was ultimately forced to quit. Meanwhile, Sean Hannity was able to derail a boycott campaign by urging Keurig coffee maker users, who also happened to be Hannity fans, to smash the product after the company said it was going to pull ads from his show. But for Ingraham, even saying sorry wasn’t enough to stanch the flow of sponsors away from her show. She got into trouble after she mocked David Hogg, a 17-year-old Parkland shooting survivor, as a whiner who didn’t get into four colleges to which he applied. After he urged companies to boycott her show, she tweeted an apology. He refused to accept it, and the tally of boycotters grew. This week, Ingraham is on Easter break with her children. She told viewers the vacation was planned, but it felt more like a forced march off the air. All Hogg had to do was wave a list of corporate advertisers to a receptive mainstream media, and advertisers vanished. Is their swift reaction a sign of national strength for the anti-gun movement? Maybe. When corporations buy sponsorships, they are buying demographics. They don’t care much about the content of the shows they may be sponsoring, and top executives may not even know about the sponsorships, said John Cullinane, a liberal Democrat and founder of a Massachusetts computer software company. They start caring when they get caught up in controversy, or start to feel they are on the wrong side of public opinion. Cullinane said he once pointed out to then- publican Roy Moore had made sexual advances to teenage girls by describing one of the encounters as “consensual.” Later, Hannity said he misspoke, but speculated that Moore’s accusers were lying for money or political purposes. Even so, the boycott flopped. Like Hannity, Ingraham was also do- With Ingraham, there’s also something of a double standard. Mean girls get less of a pass than mean men. Governor Tim Kaine of Virginia that his Economic Development Department was advertising on Rush Limbaugh. “He was very surprised and very soon there was one less Limbaugh advertiser,” said Cullinane. In this case, he added, “It took a kid from Parkland, Florida, to point out the obvious in a very effective way.” With Ingraham, there’s also something of a double standard here. Mean girls get less of a pass than mean men. Initial respondents to her tweet called out Ingraham as a mother who should know better. Imagine if Hannity tweeted what Ingraham did — “David Hogg Rejected by Four Colleges to Which He Applied and whines about it.” Even if Hogg responded in the same way and called for a boycott, would the outrage would be as great and the reaction just as swift? Remember, Hannity was able to fend off a boycott after he justified reports that Alabama Re- ing her job as paid provocateur. She just under-estimated her target. Tragedy gave Hogg a platform, and he’s using it. Ridiculing him over his college rejections was pathetic. Still, I recently defended a local sports radio host who used a nasty word to describe Tom Brady’s five-year-old daughter. In that case, Brady had all the power. He could have demanded the host’s firing, but didn’t. In this post-Parkland moment, a high school senior whose school was shot up has all the power, at least for now. Hogg took Ingraham’s tweet and ran with it. If corporate America sticks with him, the anti-gun movement truly has staying power. If that happens, what a shock for Fox.

Sex abuse allegations against Trump must be fully adjudicated Donald Trump has now been accused of sexually abusing at least 15 women. The accusations range from unwanted kissing and groping to the rape of a minor child. Worse, several of the women say they and their families were threatened with bodily harm to keep them quiet. That’s reportedly why the rape case never went forward. These allegations need to be fully investigated, with Trump being required to testify under oath. At a time when other government officials and public figures have had their careers ended over far less serious improprieties, it is intolerable that the president should be given a free pass. No one is above the law, especially not the president, who derives all his power from our legal institutions. The press must not let this matter drop or fade from view until the full truth has been established and made public. If Trump is innocent of these accusations, then let his name be cleared. If he is guilty, he should face the full consequences. GEORGE RAPPOLT Needham Slouching toward despotism It is a most immediate objective of news analysts to evaluate Donald Trump’s so-called policies, but what seems of greater concern is related more to character than policy. Becoming more apparent daily is the slouching of Trump toward despotism. Efforts to fulfill his seeming wish to become a dictator are not obscure: his admiration of dictators around the world, some of whom he envies for their lifetime appointments; ridding himself of those who disagree with him; insistence that only he has supreme authority; his sense that the military belongs to him (”my generals”); the desire to roll tanks through the streets of Washington in a military parade; his endorsement of torture, including the death penalty for those who “misbehave” in certain ways. It is beyond time for corrective action lest advancing events cannot be curtailed or reversed. DON R. LIPSITT Cambridge WARD SUTTON Trump making his bid for leader of the world — of self Donald Trump appears to have no interest in running the country (except into the ground), but he is obsessively interested in his own celebrity and popularity. More people attended his inauguration, he claimed repeatedly and erroneously, than attended any presidential inauguration in history. When Trump spoke to Hurricane Harvey victims last summer in Corpus Christi, Texas, his focus was not on the people who’d lost their homes, businesses, or lives to the storm. Instead, he thanked everyone for coming out to see him. “What a crowd, what a turnout,” he commented. Trump was elated that the recent “Roseanne” reboot drew more than 18 million viewers. “It was about us,” he crowed. To this and countless other exhibits of mind-boggling self-centeredness, I say, let’s wait until Trump’s impeachment hearings are televised. That’s when he’ll get the ratings he truly deserves. STEVE NADIS Cambridge Scandal at the State House? He’s shocked Your front-page news analysis describes a state Senate disrupted by chaos and scandal (“Upheaval hobbles Mass. Senate,” Mar. 31). True, but hardly new. This is the same body that endured 18 years under the leadership of one whose brother was, during those same years, organized crime boss, murderer, gun runner, FBI informant, fugitive, and FBI’s most wanted, to name but a few. That’s not as “salacious” as the Senate president’s husband being charged with sexual assault, admittedly, but it’s worth remembering. (Indeed, the Globe was instrumental in breaking the Bulger brothers story at the time.) Of course, if one compares the state Senate to the House, where three speakers in a row have had to resign amid scandal, the Senate is probity personified. JOSH PASSELL Watertown A cluttered house could be a sign of a deeper disorder Re “Junk science can’t reverse a clutter disaster” by Beth Teitell (Page A1, March 28): Clutter is the tangible result of two opposing societal imperatives: acquire more and do not waste anything. At the intersection lies a massive accumulation of objects no longer needed but seemingly too valued to be trash. This makes clutter a pervasive problem. As mentioned, paying for professional organizers and buying books on organizing doesn’t necessarily make you more organized or reduce your clutter. Paradoxically, it may increase clutter, as new books with new solutions are purchased and saved. Letting go of objects that you no longer need does reduce clutter significantly and make organized living achievable. When clutter gets to overwhelming proportions, as described in the article, it may be indicative of a larger problem, such as hoarding disorder, which affects up to 6 percent of the US population. As many as 50 percent of those affected do not recognize they have hoarding disorder or that their behavior is problematic. Even worse is that hoarding symptoms increase in severity as an individual ages. Consequently, clutter may represent the tip of a mental health and public health crisis as people become increasingly unable to declutter their lives. Ward Sutton is a cartoonist and illustrator.

DAVIDOFF Chief, neuropsychology department McLean Hospital Belmont A10 The Region T h e B o s t o n G l o b e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 As boomers age, demand for replacement parts booms uJOINT REPLACEMENTS Continued from Page A1 to $50,000 for knees and $40,000 for hips, though the prices vary widely among Medicare and private insurers, which typically bear the bulk of the cost. The average age of patients listed in the American Joint Replacement Registry is about 66. With millions more boomers still in their late 50s and early 60s, the trend will only continue. “They’re aging, they’ve had some injuries, and they want to continue to be active into their 60s, 70s, and 80s. And they need a good joint to do that,” said Dr. David Mattingly, surgeon in chief at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, one of the nation’s top orthopedics centers. The surgical surge has created an expanding brigade of bionic baby boomers whose artificial parts are accompanied by sky-high expectations — something doctors struggle to manage. Despite steady improve- VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE RESTAURANTS If you love dining out, weigh in. Your vote will help us crown Boston’s best restaurant. Globe.com/MunchMadness #munchmadness 2018 Presented by ment in technology and outcomes, replacement joints don’t create superhumans. Still, many patients are lifelong fitness buffs who begin plotting their return to the gym, the golf course, or the cross-country skiing trails the moment they are discharged from the hospital. Winthrop retiree John Carver, 76, is already back at the fitness center after having replacement surgery on his right knee in February. “My goal is to get back to an hour — 30 minutes on the elliptical and some back exercises,” he said. A Marine veteran who ran the New York City Marathon the year he turned 40, Carver has scheduled a similar procedure on his left knee in May, early enough “to be ready for golf season.” For those who are still working at physically demanding jobs, there are other considerations. “I’m up and down the scaffolding all day,” said David Smith, 62, of Arlington, a construction superintendent in Boston who had a hip replacement in January. “My first focus was to just get on my feet so I can work another 10 years. So I said, ‘OK, let’s get this done.’ ” Smith, who played hockey in college and as an adult and spent years lifting heavy equipment on building sites, plans to return to his job this spring. But he has already resumed golfing — on a March trip to visit his son and his family in Atlanta. And, he promised, “I will get on the skates again.” Like Smith, many boomers endured months or years of p a i n b e f o r e s u r g e r y, p a i n caused by “bone-on-bone” friction when cartilage deterioration eroded their bone cushioning. Some took multiple cortisone shots, hoping to avoid surgeries. But having had the procedures, many say they wish they’d done it sooner. West Newbury’s town clerk, Mike McCarron,, 62, played high school and college football and once climbed Mount Washington in the winter. McCarron SUZANNE KREITER/GLOBE STAFF At New England Baptist, a physical therapist showed patients about to have joints replaced how to use crutches. underwent two knee replacements simultaneously in 2011. “I had a coupon,” he joked. Now he runs on the treadmill at his Merrimack Valley gym and hikes in the Maine wilderness. Susan Nadworny, 61, of Melrose, owned an aerobics studio in Boston’s North End during the 1980s and 1990s. There, she spent three or four hours a day leading high-impact exercise classes. Nadworny, who now works as a public policy advocate for people with disabilities, had knee replacement surgery last April. Nearly a year later, she pedals an indoor exercise bicycle and spends an hour a day walking dogs in the woods. The vast majority of jointsurgery patients report much less pain and greater mobility afterward, with success rates topping 95 percent, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, a physicians organization. In patientreported surveys, some still complain of pain and tissue inflammation after their procedures. Smaller numbers suffer serious complications, ranging from blood clotting to hospitalacquired infections. New England Baptist expects to perform a record 7,000 knee and hip replacements at its Mission Hill campus this year, a nearly sixfold increase from the 1,200 annually it did in the mid-1980s. “Most of the busy guys do 15 to 20 a week,” Mattingly said. Last year, the average salary for joint-replacement specialists topped $575,000, reported the Dallas consulting firm Merritt Hawkins & Associates, compared with just over $230,000 for family doctors. Because of improvements in materials and the way they’re treated and sterilized, implants — which include polyethylene ‘I’m out walking my Lab about five miles a day, every day.’ STEPHANIE DONVAN A 60-year-old who had a knee replacement and titanium alloys — don’t wear down as fast as they once did. Implants now have a 90 percent chance of lasting two decades, much longer than in the past, Mattingly said. While physical activity obviously plays a role in joint deterioration, genetics may be the biggest factor in determining who needs a replacement and when, he said. Knee replacements were first offered in the 1960s, and hip replacements began in the 1940s, so many boomers are facing the same surgeries their fathers and mothers underwent. But boomers may have a tougher time coming to terms with the reality that a new body part doesn’t mean they can resume all of the high-impact activities that were a major part of their lives. “Nobody will return to playing football,” Mattingly said. “The person who struggles is the one who’s done long-distance running for years and just doesn’t want to give it up.” Technology could eventually change that. Joint implants have become more customized to suit individual patients, but a Billerica company is pushing the personalization trend further. ConforMIS Inc. uses 3-D printing and imaging software to more precisely tailor replacement joints. It sells between 17,000 and 20,000 personalized knee implants a year — still a small share of the market — and last year won US regulatory approval for its first hip implants. “The baby boomer explosion is a big deal in health care,” said ConforMIS chief executive Mark Augusti. “Technology has to be part of the solution. Baby boomers expect to be more active as they get older and have higher expectations about quality of life in their later years.” Stephanie Donvan, 60, of Arlington, who received a ConforMIS knee replacement in May, recalled feeling like she was “carrying a dead tree trunk” before the surgery. Now, she said, “I’m out walking my Lab about five miles a day, every day. I can run in the snow and ride my bike. I have complete range of motion . . . We want to keep going till we’re in our 80 s or 90 s. We don’ t want to give up all the things we’re doing.” Robert Weisman can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Metro B T H E B O S T O N GL OB E T U ES DAY, A P R I L 3 , 2 01 8 | B O S T O N G L O B E .C O M / M E T R O Kevin Cullen When Great Trees Fall When my niece Kathleen told me she was dating some guy named Nyall Sheldon, I couldn’t decide what surprised me most: that he was English or that he had a lip ring. He lost the lip ring pretty quickly, thank God, but you never stop being English and Nyall Sheldon was English. He came to this country as a 3-yearold when his father got a job teaching at Ohio State University. Nyall lost his accent but gained so much else growing up in the United States. Nyall would talk to a telephone pole. He loved to fish and watch Premier League soccer games and play lacrosse and eventually he came to love my niece, Kathleen Cannon. They met in Ohio, where they went to university, and got married on the Jersey Shore, where my wife and her sisters frolicked as children on the precious week or two that my mother- and fatherin-law could afford. When I first met Nyall, I was deeply suspicious. Kathleen was our oldest niece, the daughter my wife and I never had, and we were fiercely protective of her. But then Nyall told me the two things he loved most in this world, besides my niece, were beer and Manchester United and I realized I was looking at a younger, far more fit and handsome version of myself. From that moment on, we were budzos. Because they fell in love in Columbus they decided to settle in Columbus, leaving Ohio only to see friends and relatives. After their first child, Dylan, was born a couple of years ago, they stopped traveling as much and everybody went to them. Dylan has a head full of shocking blond hair and an appetite that means he would eat the next cow he meets, and I have to tell you that we love that kid to death. When we found out that Kathleen was pregnant with their second, the only question was would we go out to Ohio and help before or after the birth. I had suggested the name Caoimhe, which in the Irish means gentle and beautiful and precious. Kathleen liked the name but kept saying they didn’t even know the baby’s gender so that maybe it was best to wait on names. And then we got the call a few weeks ago. Kathleen was puttering around the kitchen when she heard a crash in the basement. She rushed downstairs and found Nyall in a heap. He had fallen off their exercise bicycle. Nyall was rushed to Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where the doctors found that he had a brain aneurysm. He had no brain activity. They put him on a bunch of machines to keep him alive and Kathleen had to figure out what to do. In the end, there was nothing to do except what he and Kathleen had talked about doing if the unthinkable happened, and that was harvest his organs and give them to other people, so they might live. As the doctors tried to figure out if there was any chance for Nyall, I postponed a business trip to Ireland. My wife gripped my hand and told me to go, while the medical staff at Ohio State gripped Kathleen’s hand and examined their options. I have flown to Ireland from Boston maybe 50 times, and this was the first time I ever flew there feeling lousy. I was in Connemara, where my grandparents decided to chuck everything and take a shot at America, when I learned that Nyall had died. I flew home from Ireland and my wife and I spent a sleepless few hours in our bed in Hingham before heading to Logan for the flight to Ohio. I dreaded the funeral service, because there is nothing so sad, so utterly soul crushing as to be witness to the death of someone so young and so full of life. But the service for Nyall was anything but depressing. It was life affirming. It was beautiful. Nyall’s casket was draped with three scarves: Ohio State, Manchester United, and Brighton & Hove Albion, the last being the soccer team of his dad’s hometown. Nyall’s dad, Ian, a professor at Ohio State, spoke first and explained Nyall’s CULLEN, Page B5 Trooper’s hiring ignored drugcase clues She says no one asked about federal testimony with immunity By Shelley Murphy GLOBE STAFF Trooper Leigha Genduso admitted on her State Police application that she experimented with pot as a teenager, but never mentioned that she cut up bales of marijuana and sold it in 10-pound packages covered in gift-wrapping. Still, a clue on Genduso’s 2012 application could have exposed her past and raises questions about how thoroughly she was vetted during the hiring process. A North Reading address that Genduso listed as her former residence was forfeited to the govern- ment in a federal drug case — a case in which Genduso took the witness stand in 2007 and recounted her role in a marijuana-trafficking operation. “I had a background investigation like everybody else did,” Genduso, 36, said last week in her first public comments since she was suspended without pay in February amid revelations about her past. “I answered the questions.” Genduso, who dated and lived with a top commander at the time she applied to be a trooper, is now at the center of an internal investigation into how she slipped through the hiring process. “There’s no way I would have ever allowed somebody to be hired with that type of background if I knew about it at that time,” said former State Police Colonel Timothy Alben, who led the department from 2012 to 2 0 1 5. “ C l e a r ly t h at w a s n ot brought to my attention.” Alben said State Police applicants have been turned away for far less than what Genduso admittedly did. Genduso, who became a dispatcher in 2008 and a trooper in 2014, said no one asked during the hiring process about her federal testimony, which was given under a GENDUSO, Page B5 ‘I’VE BEEN TO THE MOUNTAINTOP . . .’ JESSICA RINALDI/GLOBE STAFF State Trooper Leigha Genduso said she did not lie or mislead State Police by not giving details of her drug-selling past.

At UMass Boston, budget cuts target academic research centers By Laura Krantz GLOBE STAFF Leaders of several academic research centers at the University of Massachusetts Boston are furious with the school after it announced that they would see their budgets slashed as part of an attempt to lessen the school’s deficit. On the chopping block is one center that helps veterans and another that studies Latino communities in Massachusetts, as well as others. “We are all demoralized. We feel devalued in our service to veterans,” said ‘They don’t even know what we do. They don’t know what we’re about.’ THOMAS KANE Director of a UMass institute that helps provide services to military veterans Thomas Kane, director of the William Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences, one of 17 centers that are being cut. The centers learned about the cuts in a memo sent on March 26 by interim chancellor Barry Mills, who is running the university and managing its deficit while the campus searches for a permanent leader. The original budget gap was $30 million, but other cuts, including layoffs and a hiring freeze, have shrunk it significantly. UMASS BOSTON, Page B4 Two years ago, Jill Shah was volunteering during recess at a Roxbury elementary school where she and other volunteers were attempting to get students to try some arugula and other greens grown in the school garden. She was astonished to learn that students rarely feasted on fresh foods inside the building and instead were being served frozen dinners because the school, like most in Boston, was not equipped with a fullservice kitchen. A year later, Shah worked with the school system on an experiment: putting up money to build kitchens in three schools in East Boston that didn’t have them so students could eat fresh meals prepared on site. The experiment proved so successful that Mayor Martin J. Walsh announced Monday that it would be expanding next fall to more than two dozen schools in East Boston, Roxbury, and Mattapan, and will be called “My Way Cafe.” The $3 million effort — half of it being paid for by the Shah Family Foundation — represents the latest step by the school system and the mayor’s office to get the freshest food possible into the bellies of the system’s 56,000 students. (A separate effort launched last fall replaced all frozen dinners with fresher meals prepared off premises by an outside vendor, Revolution Foods.)

Full report, D10 LANE TURNER/GLOBE STAFF The leadership position of Massachusetts Senate President Harriette L. Chandler is so tenuous she is unsure whether she will still be the chamber’s leader by next week. “I don’t know!” Chandler said when asked Monday if she expected to retain her post for the next seven days. “I, I — I would hope so for next week. I can’t talk too much beyond that.” The comments came after her weekly Monday meeting with Governor Charlie Baker and House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, who looked on stoically. Chandler is facing internal pressure to step aside from Senator Karen E. Spilka, a fellow Democrat who has claimed the votes to be the next Senate president.

Two papers published Monday in JAMA Internal Medicine analyzing more than five years of Medicare Part D and Medicaid prescription data found that after states legalized weed, the number of opioid prescriptions and the daily dose of opioids went way down. That indicates that some people may be shifting away from prescription drugs to cannabis, though the studies can’t say whether this substitution is actually happening or if patients or doctors are the driving force. “In this time when we are so concerned — rightly so — about opiate misuse and abuse and the mortality that’s occurring, we need to be clear-eyed and use evidence to drive our policies,” said W. David Bradford, an economist at the University of Georgia and an author of one of the studies. “If you’re interested in giving people options for pain management that don’t bring the particular risks that opiates do, states should contemplate turning on dispensary-based cannabis policies.” Previous research has pointed to a similar correlation. A 2014 paper found that states with medical marijuana laws had nearly 25 percent fewer deaths from opioid overdoses. But the new research is the first to connect marijuana legalization to prescription painkillers with such large data sets. One of the two new studies found that people on Medicare filled 14 percent fewer prescriptions for opioids after medical marijuana laws were passed in their states. The second study found that Medicaid enrollees filled nearly 40 fewer opioid prescriptions per 1,000 people each year after their state passed any law making cannabis accessible — with greater drops seen in states that legalized both medical and recreational marijuana. Those findings are somewhat positive from a public health angle. Opioids, in addition to an addictive potential much greater than that of marijuana, have other unappealing side effects. “The effect of opioids chronically — they wreak havoc on your GI tract,” said Marie Hayes, a psychologist at the University of Maine. Of course, medical cannabis is a drug with side effects, too. Obviously people can get high, though that does depend on the concentration of the psychoactive compound, tetrahydrocannabinol, in the strain or formulation that someone is using. Marijuana’s safety profile isn’t really at issue. “People are convinced of its safety,” Hayes said. But there’s just not a lot of evidence supporting marijuana as a chronic pain treatment in its own right. “I would say the evidence has been very modest up until about 10 years ago, because nobody would fund the research,” she said. Still, opioids as a chronic pain treatment have a checkered reputation as well: One recent study found opioids didn’t provide any more relief for chronic arthritis pain than over-thecounter painkillers. Americans seem more willing than ever to accept marijuana. A recent Pew survey found that 61 percent of Americans favor legalizing pot. Nine states and the District of Columbia allow adults to use it for whatever reason they want, while more than 20 other US states permit residents to use marijuana for medicinal purposes. Neither Medicaid nor Medicare will reimburse people for money they spend on marijuana. While the amount of money spent on opioids in states with a medical marijuana law fell by about 8 percent, the costs of both treatments might be comparable. “I did a back-of-the-envelope calculation that suggested that a daily pain management dose of hydrocodone would be about $10 out of pocket in the US,” Bradford said, though Medicare Part D plans cover much of that. A daily pain management dose of cannabis likely cost about $6 last year — and that number should be lower by now, Bradford said. “It’s becoming relatively comparable in cost.” But while Americans may accept marijuana, the federal government does not. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has promised to crack down on marijuana cases, with some exceptions. GRETCHEN ERTL FOR THE BOSTON GLOBE Conrad Roy Jr. ran the Ireland 5k in New Bedford March 31 as he prepared to run the Boston Marathon in memory of his son. Son’s suicide motivates his run O By Alana Levene GLOBE CORRESPONDENT n early-morning runs along the hilly trails of Southeastern Massachusetts, Conrad Roy Jr. can often sense his late son beaming down on him. He hopes that spirit guides his every stride in this month’s Boston Marathon, which Roy will run in memory of his son, Conrad Roy III. “The days I feel like he’s there are the reason I enjoy running,” said Roy, 46, a tug boat captain from Mattapoisett. Conrad Roy III, 18, killed himself nearly four years ago in a truck filled with carbon monoxide, after his girlfriend sent him a text telling him to “get back in” when he had second thoughts. Michelle Carter of Plainville was found guilty last year of involuntary manslaughter. Carter, now 21, is appealing the verdict. Running helped Roy Jr. cope with the stress of the trial that became known around the world as the “texting suicide case.” On April 16, Roy will run the Marathon for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. He hopes to raise $25,000 and has set up a page on CrowdRise for donations. He got the idea to run from his sister, Becki Maki of Hopedale, who told him the charity was recruiting Marathon runners. “With the amount of attention this case has gotten, he’s been wanting to do something positive,” Maki said. Conrad Roy III was wearing a “Boston Strong” T-shirt — inspired by the city’s resilience after the terror attacks at the Marathon in 2013 — on the day he died. That also motivated her brother, Maki said. “This is the perfect opportunity for him, running to honor his son, but also being able to use it as a platform for suicide prevention,” Maki said. Roy Jr., who ran his first half-marathon last year, started training for the Boston Marathon nearly four months ago. On most days, he heads out about 8 a.m. for 5- to 10-mile runs with a group from the New Bedford YMCA. On his own, he does 20-mile runs and trail workouts in Dartmouth and Rochester. He also runs in local races, such as the Ireland 5k last Saturday in New Bedford. He thinks his son, a rower and runner, would marvel at his logging up to 45 miles a week. “I think he’d just be really proud of me,” said Roy Jr. “I think he’d be just smiling down on me.” Alana Levene can be reached at email@example.com.

The Democrat explained Monday, in a letter to Democratic Governor Dannel P. Malloy, the final figure depends upon tax receipts collected in April and growth in Wall Street bonuses over the past year. A recent annual report from the New York State comptroller revealed how bonuses in the securities industry are up 17 percent over the last year, averaging $184,220. Many workers on Wall Street live in Connecticut and therefore would help fuel growth in the withholding portion of the state’s personal income tax. Lembo says the corporation and sales taxes continue to underperform, noting action will be needed to close the deficit. (AP) was the blind spot in front of the tractor-trailer,” prosecutors said. The crash happened just after 8 a.m. on Massachusetts Avenue in Porter Square. The cyclist, Bernard Lavins, 60, of Lexington, was struck in the middle southbound lane. Investigators concluded that Lavins “exited the bike lane, which continues along Massachusetts Avenue to the intersection for Somerville Avenue, with the intention to turn left approximately 36 feet prior to the crosswalk,” prosecutors said. “The operator of the truck was not speeding, impaired, or distracted by cellphone or other objects at the time of the crash,” prosecutors said.

(AP) POLICE BLOTTER R ATM THEFTS A Brazilian couple was arrested Friday and charged with masterminding an ATM skimming operation at banks in Saugus, Stoneham, and Medford, according to US Attorney Andrew E. Lelling’s office. Alexandre Kawamura, 42, was charged with possessing device-making equipment, and Karem Kawamura, 25, was charged with aiding and abetting the use of a counterfeit access device, Lelling’s office said. Alexandre Kawamura was caught on video installing and removing skimming devices on drive-up ATMs at Eastern Bank branches in Saugus, Stoneham, and Medford between Feb. 24 and March 16, Lelling’s office said. Prosecutors allege that the devices he attached to ATM card slots skimmed account information from the magnetic strips of customers’ debit cards, and pinhole cameras secretly recorded the victims as they entered their PINs into the ATM keypads. The scheme apparently went unnoticed until March 16, when a customer called police to report that he’d found a skimming device on a drive-up ATM in Stoneham, Lelling’s office said. R BULLET FOUND A Bartlett High School business teacher found a bullet in her storage closet Mon- day morning, Webster school officials said. The teacher was collecting supplies from the closet, which is typically locked, when she spotted the bullet around 8 a.m., said Lori Glennon, a Webster Public Schools spokeswoman. The teacher immediately notified police officials, who conducted a full sweep of the school with dogs and metal detector wands, according to a statement from the superintendent’s office. While officials conducted their search, the school followed safety protocols and issued a hold in place, the statement said. The sweep resulted in no further findings. Classes resumed around noon at the end of the search, Glennon said. “Safety is our number one priority. . . . Students and staff were very cooperative during the search,” the statement said. R DRAMATIC FALL Two skiers survived a close call Sunday on Mount Washington in New Hampshire when they fell several hundred feet down Tuckerman Ravine but avoided injury, officials said. Dramatic video of the fall was posted to the websites of Northeast Alpine Start and WMURTV on Monday. The Mount Washington Avalanche Center said in an advisory that “meltfreeze crust” on the mountain was making for tricky terrain. “This melt-freeze crust is strong and supportive thanks to cold temperatures over the weekend and presents the greatest threat of the day in the form of long, sliding falls,” the advisory said. “While two skiers experienced this sort of fall on the Lip yesterday and walked away with no injuries thanks to a clean run-out, the result could have been much different if this had occurred in Left Gully or Huntington, places that have bushes or rocks to contend with.” Further details were not immediately available. R FATAL CRASH A 19-year-old woman from Paxton died and three other people were seriously injured after two motorcycles crashed into a pickup truck in Worcester on Sunday night, according to police. The Worcester Police Department said that the deadly collision occurred just before 6:40 p.m. at the intersection of Perry Avenue and Millbury Street. Officers arrived and found the four people who had been riding on the two motorcycles on the ground with serious injuries, according to a police statement. The four victims were taken to the hospital, where the woman was pronounced dead. The three others were in stable condition on Monday.

Carlos “Chuchito” Melara, who also goes by the nickname “Criminal,” pleaded guilty Friday in federal court in Boston to conspiring to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, the US Attorney’s office said in a statement. The office said Melara and a co-defendant, Henry Josue Parada Martinez, also known as “Street Danger,” participated in the slaying of Wilson Martinez, who was fatally stabbed on Sept. 7, 2015. The killers lured Martinez to the beach by posing as a girl on Facebook who wanted to meet him, according to the statement. The gang was controlling the Facebook account to ensnare suspected rivals whom they wanted to murder, the release said. Melara, posing as a friend of the purported girl, picked up Martinez on a scooter on the day of the murder and drove him to the beach, where gang members beat and stabbed Martinez to death, according to federal prosecutors. The slaying earned Melara a promotion to the status of a full member, or “homeboy,” in MS13, prosecutors said. Melara faces a possible life term when he’s sentenced in July, though a plea agreement says that prosecutors will recommend 30 to 40 years behind bars, court records show. He’ll also be subject to deportation when he finishes his sentence, prosecutors said. David J. Grimaldi, a lawyer for Melara, said in an e-mail that he and his client “resolved the case in the manner we did because we believe it was in Mr. Melara’s best interest to do so.’’ Parada Martinez pleaded guilty to the same conspiracy charge in November. He, too, faces a possible life sentence in July, as well as deportation proceedings when his prison term ends. A plea agreement filed in his case doesn’t specify how much time prosecutors will seek. Melara and Parada Marti- nez were among 61 members or affiliates of MS-13 indicted after a three-year investigation into the murderous gang ’s sprawling criminal network in Greater Boston. Melara is the 40th defendant to plead guilty or be convicted at trial, according to prosecutors. Travis Andersen can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @TAGlobe. To honor King, Bostonians recite his last speech Civil rights icon died 50 years ago ‘He walked here, he lived here, and I think it’s so critical for our young people to understand that we’re literally walking in his footsteps.’ By Aimee Ortiz GLOBE STAFF Fifty years ago, Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “Mountaintop” speech, a stirring cry for economic justice tinged with almost a prophetic knowledge that he would not live long. “Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place. But I’m not concerned about that now,” King said in support of striking sanitation workers in Memphis. “I just want to do God’s will. And He’s allowed me to go up to the mountain. And I’ ve looked over. And I’ve seen the Promised Land.” King was assassinated the next day — April 4, 1968. On Monday in Boston, hundreds gathered in City Hall Plaza to commemorate the 50th anniversary of King’s final speech, a poignant ceremony that included readings from young children. The event, sponsored by the Boston Mountaintop Coalition, marked a “tremendous opportunity for Bostonians to come together around the values of social justice, equity, fairness for all,” said Kevin Peterson, founder of the New Democracy Coalition and an organizer of the event. “This speech is an expression of Dr. King at his most mature,” Peterson said. “This was a radical King that talks about social justice . . . this is King at his best, at the height of his powers.” Evelyn Johnson, 75, of Dorchester, said King “opened up a lot of roads, a lot of paths, for a lot of people.” Honoring King through his own words paid homage to his enduring legacy, she said. “They’re not letting his language go,” she said. “They’re keeping it up.” Boston Mayor Martin J.

I think that’s in the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, sending the message that racial inequality, prejudice, injustices won’t be toler- ated.” Former Boston city councilor and mayoral candidate Tito Jackson said he hoped that King’s Boston ties inspire others to carry on his legacy. “He walked here, he lived here, and I think it’s so critical for our young people to understand that we’re literally walking in his footsteps,” he said. In his final speech, King spoke of the vast economic disparity between whites and blacks, a gulf that persists today, Jackson said. “In a city that a white family is worth $247,500 and a black family is worth $8, we have to have that conversation,” he said. Children who read portions of King’s speech came from across the Boston area. Destiny Hartgrove, 9, of Randolph, was chosen because she often speaks before her church. Even though it was a big crowd, she wasn’t nervous.

Rosenberg stepped down from the presidency in December amid allegations his husband had committed sexual assault. Chandler served as acting Senate president until February, when her colleagues decided to remove “acting” from her title, an attempt to end weeks of intense political jockeying for the presidency. At the time, Chandler said she would serve until the end of the current legislative session in early January 2019. But Spilka’s announcement two weeks ago that she has the votes to be the next Senate president put that timeline into question. On Monday, Chandler did not directly answer a question about whether she was any closer to resolving the issue of when Spilka would take over. “We’re still talking,” she replied. Spilka, who lives in Ashland and chairs the chamber’s powerful budget-writing committee, brushed aside the idea that there is turmoil about when she will ascend to the presidency. “I do not think that there is chaos,” she said as she walked briskly away from reporters after an unrelated event Monday afternoon. “We are in good discussions, so we are working the transition out.” The continued tumult over the presidency comes days after a statewide grand jury indicted Bryon Hefner, Rosenberg’s husband, on multiple charges of sexual assault, criminal lewdness, and distributing nude photographs without consent. Last year, the alleged victims told the Globe that Hefner had boasted of his influence on Beacon Hill and that they were reluctant to report his assaults for fear of alienating his powerful husband and harming their careers. Two of those men said they are among the four victims AN UNCERTAIN TENURE Senator Karen E. Spilka says she has the votes to replace Harriette Chandler (above). cited in Thursday’s indictment. The Senate leadership drama began last fall, days after the Globe first made public the allegations against Hefner. Rosenberg stepped down from the presidency, Chandler took the gavel, and the Senate initiated an investigation into the conduc t of Rosenberg and whether he had violated Senate rules. Chandler said Monday that she hopes the results of that investigation, which is being conducted by the Senate Committee on Ethics and an outside law firm, will be released soon. “Hopefully it’ll be no more than weeks, and hopefully that won’t be many weeks,” she told reporters.

PAT GREENHOUSE/GLOBE STAFF Moises Gaspar, 11, ate a fresh meal Monday at the Bradley Elementary School in East Boston, which features a full-service kitchen. Schools’ fresh food program expands uSCHOOL LUNCHES Continued from Page B1 created and cooked inside a school kitchen. “It shows kids they are loved and we really care about them,” said Shah, the foundation’s president. Walsh, along with Superintendent Tommy Chang, made the announcement over lunch at the Bradley Elementar y School in East Boston, where a kindergarten classroom was replaced with a full-service kitchen attached to a lunch room that doubles as an auditorium. There, Walsh and Chang joined dozens of fifth-graders for barbecued chicken drumsticks, brown rice, corn on the cob, roasted broccoli, orange wedges, and make-your-own salad. They also sipped on cups of water infused with fresh cut strawberries and lemon. “That chicken was pretty awesome,” Walsh said after fin- ishing his meal at a pint-size table. Students said they too liked the meal. “It’s really, really good,” said Faviola Rodriguez, 11, who said it was vastly superior to the frozen dinners from last year. “Before it looked and tasted like plastic.” The frozen dinners resembled those found in the supermarket — packaged in plastic black containers with clear plastic on top. Often the packages, heated up in a warming oven, would sit so long that condensation would form on the top and the meals would become cool and wet. “That was not appealing,” said Paulina Gutierrez, 11. “Now, I can see the steam coming off the food.” About two-thirds of Boston’s 125 schools were built decades ago without kitchens during a time when students would ei- ther go home for lunch or bring one to school. Many of the schools are small, serving as few as 150 students, and the belief has long been there is not enough space to create a fullfledged cafeteria experience. But the Shah Family Foundation’s effort, initially dubbed the “hub and spoke,” is debunking that misconception. Under the model, the three East Boston schools — the Bradley, the P.J. Kennedy, and East Boston Early Education Center — are partnering with East Boston High School on the meals. The high school, which long has had a full-service cafeteria, holds much of the fresh food inventory, sends out the proper amounts to the schools daily, and also does some prep work, such as making the barbecue sauce. But most of the food, including the chicken, is cooked at the individual schools. A similar arrangement will be used with the other schools getting outfitted with kitchens. Under the program, the schools will receive a combination oven and steamer, a refrigerator, a freezer, several sinks, and hot and cold serving stations. Ken Oringer, a chef and owner of Toro, Uni Boston, and other restaurants showed cafeteria workers how to cook some new menu items. Walsh said he would like the program to expand to all schools that don’t have kitchens, noting that he hears a lot of complaints about food from students and families at those schools. “Having nutritious meals in schools is a game changer for people in the development of their brains and their bodies and their understanding of eating right and getting a bal- anced meal.” Walsh said. “It changes their outcomes in how they perform in school. There is no question about it.” Chang said Roxbury and Mattapan were chosen for the expansion because the neighborhoods, which he described as “food deserts,” are in the greatest need for the healthiest food possible in their schools. One student, after lunch w ra p p e d u p , a s ke d C h a n g about his eating habits, and he said the students are probably doing a better job at getting a nutritious meal. “I don’t always eat healthy all the time,” Chang admitted. “The healthiest meal I will have all week is probably this one, but I promise I will do better.” James Vaznis can be reached at email@example.com.

Budget cuts at UMass Boston target research centers uUMASS BOSTON Continued from Page B1 According to the memo, university administrators surveyed the 30 centers and institutes at the university and determined that 17 were not self-sufficient, and combined to produce a deficit of $5 million in fiscal 2017. The memo said the university will cut the funding for the centers and institutes that have required the largest university subsidies. The university has asked them to replace that funding with private fund-raising, grants, and contracts. “As the leaders of our centers and institutes will rightly note, they are doing important work — and important work finds funding and a future,” Mills wrote. Asked for a comment for this article, Mills was not available, said university spokesman DeWayne Lehman. The other centers set to have their funding cut include the William Monroe Trotter Institute for the Study of Black Culture, the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy, the Institute for New England Na- tive American Studies, the Labor Resource Center, and the Center for Social Policy. The cuts will save up to $1.5 million in the fiscal year that begins July 1, the memo said. Administrators plan to continue to reduce the $5 million subsidy over the next three years, it said, adding that the university will help the centers become self-sufficient. Center directors called the university’s approach heavyhanded and unnecessary because the centers cost the university a small amount compared with its $430 million operating budget. The cuts have also drawn the attention of some elected officials. “This is really shortsighted,” said state Representative Marjorie Decker, a Cambridge Democrat. “They think they can just do this under the radar, and it’s at the expense of our veterans.” Decker, the daughter of a Vietnam veteran, said she has asked to speak with UMass officials and is also talking with other legislators. In the past, some centers at UMass Boston had specific earmarks in the state budget, but those were eliminated about a decade ago, and they now rely on the university for funding each year. The Joiner Institute provides free counseling to students who are veterans and also provides services in the community, including a program for high school teachers on how to teach about war and veterans. The center also conducts academic research about veterans, Kane said, and is working on a project with refugees in Iraq. “The need is very great, our voices are being ignored, and they’re not valuing what we bring to the university total educational experience,” said Kane, the director. Kane is especially frustrated because he learned that UMass plans to redirect $200,000 that funds the institute toward scholarships for veterans, but he said no one consulted with the institute about that plan before announcing it. “They don’t even know what we do. They don’t know what we’re about,” he said. According to UMass, the Joiner Institute has a $400,000 deficit this year, down from around $540,000 last year. But Kane said what the university calls a “deficit” is actually just the money it costs to pay the staff who run the institute. The Joiner Institute started the academic year with 5½ university-funded staff positions, he said. Now it has just three part-timers after two people took buyouts, another left, and another retired. News about the program also troubled William Joiner III, the son of the man for whom the institute is named. Joiner, a high school teacher in Newton, recalled how his father became the first director of veterans affairs at UMass Boston 30 years ago. He said he wants the Joiner Institute’s funding restored. The cost is tiny compared with the services it provides, he said. “The work the Joiner continues to do, you can’t put a price on it,” he said. Another center facing cuts is the Mauricio Gaston Institute for Latino Community Development and Public Policy. Its director, professor Lorna Rivera, said the university is framing the issue incorrectly. It is not the centers that have landed the school in a deficit, she said. It is the massive construction projects that have cost tens of millions of dollars more than anticipated. The Gaston Institute has an annual budget of about $230,000, she said, most of which pays for its three staff members. The operating budget is around $25,000, she said. The institute provides opportunities for students and faculty and also produces research about Latino communities in New England, she said. “Not only will students lose out and faculty, but the general public will not have the kind of data that is needed for policymaking,” she said.

Officer is found guilty in attack By Travis Andersen GLOBE STAFF A Suffolk Superior Court jury Monday convicted a veteran Boston police officer of assault for hitting an Uber driver in South Boston during a racially motivated attack in 2015 while the officer was off duty, prosecutors said. Michael C. Doherty, 43, of South Boston, was convicted of two counts of assault and battery for striking the driver during the early morning hours of Jan. 4, 2015, District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said in a prepared statement. Jurors also convicted Doherty, a 16-year-veteran of the force, of assault and battery for purposes of intimidation, in light of his “use of racial and ethnic slurs during the confrontation,” but acquitted him of violating the civil rights of another man who tried to help the Uber driver, the statement said. A lawyer for Doherty couldn’t be reached for comment. The department had placed Doherty on leave with pay soon after his arrest, then suspended him without pay following his indictment. “Today’s decision sends a strong and definitive message that police officers are not above the law and must answer for their actions should they choose to behave in a way that places the public in danger, whether they are on duty or off,” Boston police Commissioner William B. Evans said Monday. “As I have said before, I hold my officers to a very high standard, and I believe any actions that undermine the public’s trust should have appropriate consequences.” Prosecutors said Doherty was a customer of the 28-yearold Uber driver when he assaulted him around 2:45 a.m., after shouting that he had driven to the wrong location. “What, you think I’m stupid, you [expletive],” Doherty said, using a racial slur against Hispanics, according to prosecutors. When the driver stopped at East Second and M streets, Doherty began hitting him, forcing him out of the car and chasing him around the vehicle, according to authorities. T h e U b e r d r i v e r w av e d down traffic for help, and when another man stopped, Doherty jumped in the Uber vehicle and drove off, prosecutors said. Jurors on Monday also convicted Doherty of using a motor vehicle without authority. When he stopped the vehicle on East First Street, he got out and said to a passerby, “What do you want, you [expletive]?” using a racial slur against blacks, officials have said. He then began swinging at both men, knocking the driver to the ground, according to court filings. The three men struggled until Doherty saw police lights heading toward them, and then walked away, police have said. Doherty had a black eye and his arm in a sling during his district court arraignment shortly after the fracas, and his lawyer at the time said the officer “disputes these charges vigorously” and was the true victim during the encounter. He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 17. “The defendant’s conduct that night was reprehensible,” Conley said after the verdict. “His words and actions have no place in civilized society. They represented a crime against the victims, who were doing nothing more than trying to work for a living, and they were a slap in the face to countless police officers who work hard every day to earn the community’s trust with honor and professionalism.Racially motivated violence by anyone, sworn or civilian, will be investigated and prosecuted, and no one should ever be afraid to report it.” Peter Schworm of the Globe staff contributed to this report.

T h e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 B o s t o n G l o b e Metro B5 Trooper’s past raises questions about hiring process uGENDUSO Continued from Page B1 grant of immunity. A transcript of her testimony has been available on the court docket since 2008, and State Police assisted the Drug Enforcement Administration during that investigation. State Police applicants are asked if they ever used or sold drugs. Genduso wrote that she “experimented” with marijuana in 1999, then “terminated” use, according to her 2012 trooper application. Defending that response in her interview with the Globe, Genduso said she gave “a vague answer” to “a large open-ended question” and didn’t believe she lied or misled State Police by failing to disclose her past. She said she elaborated on her answer during a follow-up interview with a background investigator, but doesn’t recall being asked if she sold drugs. Her attorney, Vikas Dhar, who shared Genduso’s personnel file with the Globe, said the information she provided on her applications “would trigger or should have triggered followup questions and to the extent the State Police failed to do that is on them.” He said he expects Genduso to be reinstated. On Monday, officials announced sweeping changes for the State Police. Updates to background checks for new recruits will include questions about whether they were involved in a criminal investigation, even if they were not charged with a crime. Officials said the department is also exploring other methods to identify “potential red flags among candidates.” State Police spokesman David Procopio said the internal investigation into Genduso’s hiring is ongoing. “In addition to investigating the information she provided during her hiring process, we also are examining whether other steps could have been tak- JESSICA RINALDI/GLOBE STAFF Leigha Genduso said she doesn’t understand why she’s facing harsh criticism for misdeeds she committed before joining the State Police. But a former commander of the force acknowledged that Genduso should never have been hired. en in an attempt to learn more about her background,” Procopio said. State Police background checks involve reviews of criminal, driving, and credit histories; written questionnaires; assessment of past employment; and interviews of people who know, or know of, the applicant, according to Procopio. Applicants who admit to past recreational use of marijuana — which is now legal in Massachusetts — are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. “Factors that are considered are frequency and duration of use, applicant’s age at the time, and context in which it was used,” Procopio said. Genduso also shared on her 2012 trooper application that she had been living with Daniel Risteen, then a State Police major, for three years. Risteen was later promoted to lieutenant colonel, third in command of the agency, but retired suddenly in late February, the same day Genduso was suspended. Risteen had been accused last fall of taking part in the decision to order a trooper to remove embarrassing information from the report about the arrest of a judge’s daughter. Genduso said she and Risteen broke up in October. She declined to comment on whether he knew about her past, but said neither he nor anyone else at the State Police intervened in the hiring process. “There was no indication to me that I was getting any special treatment at all,” Genduso said. Risteen could not be reached for comment. His lawyer did not respond to requests from the Globe. Alben, who now runs a security consulting business, said Massachusetts is one of the few states that doesn’t allow law enforcement agencies to require applicants to take polygraph examinations, and that an exemption should be created under the law to allow that. “I don’t want the public to think everybody gets through,” Alben said. “Clearly there’s an issue with this one. We need to go back and fix what the deficiency was because what we know now would be disqualifying information for being hired, no matter how she wants to minimize that.” Robert Long, a retired State Police detective lieutenant and security consultant, said any background check should include calls to the police departments in the towns where an applicant lived to determine whether there were any interactions with them. “There are very convincing liars out there,” Long said. “I go into every background check very cynical.” Genduso said she doesn’t understand why she’s facing harsh criticism for misdeeds she committed before joining the force. Her personnel file shows she received numerous commendations as a dispatcher and canine officer — from guiding police to rescue a kidnapped woman to using her dog to track home-invasion suspects and uncover drugs and cash. “I feel like I’m being hung out to dry because of mistakes in my past,” Genduso said. “Nobody’s perfect, and basically everyone messes up.” G e ndu so sai d sh e ha d a tough childhood and left home at 16. Three years later, she was waitressing when she began dating Sean Bucci, a disc jockey and drug dealer. In 2007, while testifying in federal court in Boston, Genduso revealed that she had helped Bucci break up bales of marijuana and launder money and that she delivered up to 10 pounds of marijuana at a time to her own customer. Her testimony helped send Bucci to prison for 10 years for marijuana trafficking. On her application for trooper, Genduso listed 23 Marshall St. in North Reading as her home address from 2002 to 2004. That home was bought by Bucci with drug proceeds and forfeited to the government after his 2007 conviction, according to court filings and a press release issued at the time by the US attorney’s office. Genduso said she turned her life around after breaking up with Bucci in 2004, began volunteering with rescue dogs, and thought she might be able to pursue a career in law enforcement, since she had no criminal record. “I wanted to start over,” said Genduso, adding that she applied three times for dispatcher jobs before getting hired. But Alben said law enforcement is not a job for anyone who was involved in drug trafficking and money laundering. “I think people turning their lives around is a very honorable and noble thing to do, and I give credit to anybody who has done that,” Alben said. “But they don’t belong in law enforcement, because integrity means everything here.” Shelley Murphy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. A life short in years, full in love uCULLEN Continued from Page B1 love of Man U, one of the most storied sports franchises, and Brighton, one of the least. He had wanted to name his first-born after Nile Rogers, the musician who founded Chic. But he also wanted to name him after Niall Quinn, an Irish soccer player. So he compromised and named him Nyall. Ian Sheldon, a marvelous academic, spoke movingly of his son, concluding his remarks with the words of John Lennon, another Englishman who died far too young: There are places I’ll remember. All my life, though some have changed. Some forever, not for better, Some have gone and some remain. All these places have their moments. With lovers and friends I still can recall. Some are dead and some are living. In my life, I’ve loved them all. But of all these friends and lovers, There is no one compares with you. And these memories lose their meaning, When I think of love as something new. Though I know I’ll never lose affection, For people and things that went before. I know I’ll often stop and think about them. In my life, I love you more. And we cried because it was as if Nyall was speaking to Kathleen from the grave. Nyall’s brother, Luke, noted that Nyall and Kathleen had introduced him to his wife, Marisa, who is Kathleen’s best friend. So best friends married two brothers and the couples became inseparable, their sons born months apart, so that Dylan and Conway will mark every milestone, from playing Little League Baseball to renting tuxes for their high school SHELDON FAMILY Nyall Sheldon, with his wife, Kathleen, and their son, Dylan. prom, together. Luke sat at Nyall’s bedside before he died and promised his big brother he would look after Kathleen and Dylan and the baby who will be born at summer’s end. Bernie Kooi, one of Nyall’s oldest friends, recalled that he and Nyall had been buddies since high school, that they went from doing stupid things together, chasing girls, and playing sports, to trying to be husbands and fathers. “Being a good husband and a good father was all Nyall cared about,” Bernie said. Nyall’s sister, Rebecca, got up and read a poem by Maya Angelou, called “When Great Trees Fall.” And it was so apt that we all ached listening. When great trees fall, Rocks on distant hills shudder, Lions hunker down in tall grasses, and even elephants lumber after safety. When great trees fall in forests, small things recoil into silence, their senses eroded beyond fear. When great souls die, the air around us becomes light, rare, sterile. We breathe, briefly. Our eyes, briefly, see with a hurtful clarity. O u r m e m o r y, s u d d e n l y sharpened, examines, gnaws on kind words, unsaid, promised walks never taken. Great souls die and our reality, bound to them, takes leave of us. Our souls, dependent upon their nurture, now shrink, wizened. Our minds, formed and informed by their radiance fall away. We are not so much maddened as reduced to the unutterable ignorance of dark, cold caves. And when great souls die, after a period peace blooms, slowly and always irregularly. Spaces fill with a kind of soothing electric vibration. Our senses, restored, never to be the same, whisper to us. They existed. They existed. We can be. Be and be better. For they existed. Nyall’s organs and corneas were given to people without regard to their race, religion, politics, or sexual orientation. Others will live and be able to see because of him. I loved him not just because he loved my niece, not because he loved Man U, but because he loved life and lived it like every day might be his last, and then one day it was. Nyall Sheldon got 32 years on this earth, which seems terribly short and unfair, but he made ever y minute count. That’s a pretty good legacy. And someday, when their children are old enough to understand, Kathleen will hold their hands and introduce them to the people who lived because Nyall died and we as a family will take some comfort there, because at times like these you’ll take comfort wherever you can find it.

Of Medﬁeld and Cohasset, MA, formerly of Dover, MA, died peacefully on Saturday, March 31, 2018 surrounded by her beloved family. Loving wife of David B. Perini; beloved mother of Jennifer of San Francisco, CA, Kristin and husband Bill Driscoll of Hingham, MA, Timothy and wife Patricia of Harrison, NY, Andrea of Brooklyn, NY and the late David Jr. Daughter of Margaret Lynch and Denis Callahan. Sister of Mary Guarente, Margaret Callahan, Noreen Cronin, Denis Callahan, Kathleen Grannan, Christine Shanley, and the late Ann Tibbetts and John Callahan. “Mimi” to her 10 grandchildren, Eileen was born on August 8, 1937 and raised in Arlington, MA. She attended Arlington High School and graduated from Cardinal Cushing Jr. College in 1957. Eileen married David B. Perini in 1962. A lifelong learner, Eileen returned to school twenty seven years later, and at the age of 47, while still raising ﬁve children, earned her Bachelor of Arts from Wellesley College in 1984. She went on to receive her Masters in Clinical Social Work from Boston College in 1988, and worked as a psychotherapist at BC for several years. Beyond her husband, children and grandchildren, the central passion of Eileen’s life was her work for the Jimmy Fund’s David B. Perini Jr. Quality of Life Clinic, which she and husband David established at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in 1992, soon after the death of their son David Jr. at age 26. Determined to make something meaningful of this tragedy, she dedicated herself to growing the Clinic and supporting the Dana Farber. She was a 29-year participant in the Boston Marathon® Jimmy Fund Walk as captain of “Team Perini” and was annually one of the Walk’s top fundraisers. For 19 years, the David Perini Memorial Golf Tournament was held to support the Perini Quality of Life Clinic, and in 1996, Eileen was instrumental in securing a partnership with Swim Across America to beneﬁt the Clinic and the Dana-Farber. Team Perini has also participated in the PanMassachusetts Challenge for more than 25 years, raising more than $5M for the Clinic. In 2010, Eileen and David created an endowment to support the Dana Farber’s Adult Survivorship Program in perpetuity. With this endowment, the Perini Family Survivors’ Center was created and is now comprised of the Adult Survivorship Program and the David B. Perini, Jr. Quality of Life Clinic. There are thousands of cancer survivors whose lives are better because of the Center, the services it provides, and Eileen and David’s efforts to create and support it. In addition, Eileen joined the Dana-Farber Board of Trustees in 1990, furthering the Perini family’s partnership as one of Dana-Farber’s “ﬁrst families.” Her husband David served on the Board for many years, and his father, Louis R. Perini, was a Founding Trustee of the Institute who served on the Board from 1948-1972 and helped to create and establish the Jimmy Fund. Her daughter Jennifer is currently a Dana-Farber Trustee. Eileen became a Distinguished Trustee in 2014. Her extensive service as a Trustee included dedicated time as a member of the Jimmy Fund Advisory Executive Committee, Adult Patient and Family Advisory Council, and Nursing and Patient Care Visiting Committee. Eileen was also a member of the Friends of Dana-Farber for multiple years. In 2013, Eileen and David received the Jimmy Fund’s highest honor, when they were awarded the Boston Red Sox Jimmy Fund Award for their family’s decades of support. Eileen was a proliﬁc painter and loved to ﬁll her home with light and beauty. She loved to learn, particularly about world religion and psychology, and was always reading and taking courses. She was an avid walker, and could be seen taking her daily power walks around Dover, rain or shine. Eileen was a beautiful person with a beautiful soul who absolutely loved being around people. More than anything, Eileen loved to be with her husband of 55 years, David, their ﬁve children and ten grandchildren. She cherished her eight sisters and brothers, who remained a central part of her life until the end. A Mass to celebrate Eileen’s life will be held Thursday, April 5, at 1pm at Church of the Most Precious Blood, 30 Centre St., Dover, MA 02030.

T h e B o s t o n G l o b e B9 Obituaries Winnie MadikizelaMandela; fought apartheid By Alan Cowell NEW YORK TIMES NEW YORK — Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, whose hallowed place in the pantheon of South Africa’s liberators was eroded by scandal over corruption, kidnapping, murder, and the implosion of her fabled marriage to Nelson Mandela, died early Monday in Johannesburg. She was 81. Her death, at the Netcare Milpark Hospital, was announced by her spokesman, Victor Dlamini. He said in a statement that she died “after a long illness, for which she had been in and out of hospital since the start of the year.” Charming, intelligent, complex, fiery, and eloquent, Ms. Madikizela-Mandela (Madikizela was her surname at birth) was inevitably known to most of the world through her marriage to the revered Mandela. It was a bond that endured ambiguously: She derived a vaunted status from their shared struggle, yet she chafed at being defined by him. Ms. Madikizela-Mandela commanded a natural constituency of her own among South Africa’s poor and dispossessed, and the postapartheid leaders who followed Mandela could never ignore her appeal to a broad segment of society. Ms. Madikizela-Mandela retained a political presence as a member of Parliament, representing the dominant African National Congress. Increasingly, though, Ms. Madikizela-Mandela resented the notion that her antiapartheid credentials had been eclipsed by her husband’s global stature and celebrity, and she struggled in vain in later years to be regarded again as the “mother of the nation,” a sobri- Remembered SHARE MEMORIES AT BOSTON.COM/OBITUARIES TORTORELLA, Elfreda ‘Ellie’ (Eaton) Age 72, of Waltham formerly of Watertown, March 31, 2018.

For complete obituary guest register and directions visit www.joycefuneralhome.com JOANNE RATHE/GLOBE STAFF/FILE 1990 Ms. Madikizela-Mandela derived status from the struggle she shared with Nelson Mandela. quet acquired during the long years of Mandela’s imprisonment. While Mandela was held at the Robben Island penal settlement, off Cape Town, where he spent most of his 27 years in jail, Ms. Madikizela-Mandela acted as the main conduit to his followers, who hungered for every clue to his thinking and well-being. In time, her reputation became scarred by accusations of extreme brutality toward suspected turncoats, misbehavior and indiscretion in her private life, and a radicalism that seemed at odds with Mandela’s quest for racial inclusiveness. She nevertheless sought to remain in his orbit. She was at his side, brandishing a victor’s clenched fist salute, when he was finally released from prison in February 1990. Nomzamo Winifred Zanyiwe Madikizela was born to a noble family of the Xhosaspeaking Pondo tribe in Transkei. As a barefoot child she tended cattle and learned to make do with very little, in marked contrast to her later years of free-spending ostentation. She attended a Methodist mission school and then the Hofmeyr School of Social Work in Johannesburg. One day in 1957, when she was waiting at a bus stop, Mandela drove past. Mandela, approaching 40 and the father of three, declared on their first date that he would marry her. Soon he separated from his first wife, Evelyn Ntoko Mase, a nurse, to marry Ms. MadikizelaMandela on June 14, 1958. Ms. Madikizela-Mandela was thrust into the limelight in 1964 when her husband was sentenced to life in prison on charges of treason. She was officially “banned” under draconian restrictions intended to make her a nonperson, unable to work, socialize, move freely, or be quoted in the South African news media, even as she raised their two daughters, Zenani and Zindziswa. In a crackdown in May 1969, she was arrested and held for 17 months, 13 in solitary confinement. She was beaten and tortured. The experience, she wrote, was “what changed me, what brutalized me so much that I knew what it is to hate.” After blacks rioted in the segregated Johannesburg township of Soweto in 1976, Ms. Madikizela-Mandela was again imprisoned without trial, this time for five months. She was then banished to a bleak township outside the conservative white town of Brandfort. When Ms. Madikizela-Mandela returned to her home in Soweto in 1985, breaking her banning orders, it was as a far more bellicose figure, determined to assume leadership of what became the decisive and most violent phase of the struggle. As she saw it, her role was to stiffen the confrontation with the authorities. The tactics were harsh. “Together, hand in hand, with our boxes of matches and our necklaces, we will liberate this country,” she told a rally in April 1986. She was referring to “necklacing,” a form of sometimes arbitrary execution by fire using a gas-soaked tire around a supposed traitor ’s neck, and it shocked an older generation of antiapartheid campaigners. But her severity aligned her with the young township radicals. In the late 1980 s, Ms. Madikizela-Mandela allowed the outbuildings around her residence in Soweto to be used by the so-called Mandela United Football Club, a vigilante gang that claimed to be her bodyguards. It terrorized Soweto, inviting infamy and prosecution. In 1991 she was convicted of ordering the 1988 kidnapping of four youths in Soweto. Ms. Madikizela-Mandela’s chief bodyguard was convicted of murder. She was sentenced to six years for kidnapping, but South Africa’s highest appeals court reduced her punishment to fines and a suspended oneyear term. By then her life had begun to unravel. The United Democratic Front, an umbrella group of organizations fighting apartheid and linked to the ANC, expelled her. In April 1992, Mandela, midway through settlement talks with President F.W. de Klerk of South Africa, announced that he and his wife were separating. Two years later, Mandela was elected president and offered her a minor job as the deputy minister of arts, culture, science, and technology. But after allegations of influence peddling, bribe taking, and misuse of government funds, she was forced from office. In 1996, Mandela ended their 38-year marriage, testifying in court that his wife was having an affair with a colleague. Bob Beattie; launched Alpine World Cup circuit By Pat Graham ASSOCIATED PRESS DENVER — The plaque that rested for years on ski icon Bob Beattie’s desk was inscribed with a matter-of-fact motto: It can be done. That was a fitting mantra for the ski racing pioneer who helped launch the World Cup circuit more than 50 years ago and was part of the commentary crew that called one of the most thrilling Alpine races at the 1976 Winter Games. Mr. Beattie died Sunday in Fruita, Colo., after dealing with various health issues. He was 85. “Once he made up his mind something needed to happen, he would keep pounding away until he got it done,’’ his son, Zeno, said in a phone interview. ‘‘He had a lot of friends and they always came up to him and said, ‘If it wasn’t for you, I never would’ve accomplished whatever.’ ‘‘He never really thought about that too much. His whole world was about working really hard. And if you worked really hard at something and you did it as a team and not as an individual you can pretty much do anything you ever wanted to do.’’ Known as ‘‘Beats’’ or ‘‘Coach’’ to his friends, Mr. Beattie’s career included stints as coach of the US ski team and at the University of Colorado, where he led the Buffaloes to a pair of national titles. In addition, Mr. Beattie, paired with Frank Gifford, called one of the Winter Olympics’ most famous ski races for REUTERS/FILE 1997 In 1964, with Mr. Beattie as coach, US men won Alpine medals at a Winter Olympics for the first time. ABC — Austrian great Franz Klammer’s electric downhill run to capture gold in ‘76. ‘‘They realized Bob Beattie and I had a peculiar way of calling it,’’ the late Gifford once said in an interview with EmmyTVLegends.org. ‘‘Bob loved ski racing. . . . He would get so excited at the race. My job was almost like ‘Monday Night Football,’ identify the players and let him go. He brought an unbelievable excitement to it.’’ Mr. Be attie was born in Manchester, N.H., and attended Middlebury College in Vermont, where he lettered in tennis, skiing, football, and crosscountry running. He became the ski coach following his graduation. The team finished third at the NCAA championships in 1956. Soon after, he went to Boulder, Colo., to be an assistant football coach before taking over the ski program and turning it into a national power. The Buffaloes won the title in 1959 and again in 1960. He oversaw the US ski team at the 1964 Olympic Games, where Billy Kidd and Jimmie Heuga finished 2-3 in the slalom. It marked the first two Alpine medals captured by American men at the Winter Olympics. ‘‘The pressure was severe. We had promised everything — rightfully or wrongfully — we had promised everyone the world,’’ Mr. Beattie told US ski team historian Tom Kelly last summer. ‘‘We loved each other. We were a team.’’ In the mid-1960s, Mr. Beattie partnered with journalist Serge Lang and French coach Honore Bonnet to create the World Cup, with racers traveling the globe to compete. It’s still going strong, with stars such as Lindsey Vonn, Mikaela Shiffrin, and Marcel Hirscher leading the way. Over his career, Mr. Beattie worked four Winter Games, and called volleyball at the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. He also was involved w i t h A B C ’s W i d e Wo r l d o f Sports and hosted a ski show for ESPN. In 1984, he was inducted into the US Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame. Mr. Beattie also found time to author several books on skiing and started a kids program in the Aspen Valley that flourishes today. The family is planning a celebration with the ski club this fall. ‘‘He influenced a lot of people,’’ his son said.

Or do you want me to feel that it’s awesome?’ ” Blunt said she was occasionally hard on Krasinski while he was cowriting the film (with Bryan Woods and Scott Beck). “He’d go upstairs to work for, like, eight-hour stretches, and then he’d come down looking like he’d been hit by a truck,” Blunt told the publication. “I remember being too hard on a scene that he’d been struggling with. But he processed what I was saying and found a solution.” “A Quiet Place,” which stars Krasinski and Blunt as parents who must live in near-silence with their two children to avoid a creature that hunts its prey by sound, hits theaters April 6.

BSO section member is tapped as next principal cellist The French cellist Blaise Déjardin, currently a member of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s cello section, has been named its next principal cellist. Déjardin, 34, becomes the 14th cellist to hold this principal position in the orchestra’s history. He succeeds cello legend Jules Eskin, who held the position for 52 years until his death in 2016. “It’s a huge honor, to get the job period, and to succeed Jules Eskin,” Déjardin told the Globe by phone on Monday. “For me, the most overwhelming thing about winning the job was not just that the committee chose me as a musician, but that they know me personally, and that I was respected enough by my peers. That personal aspect meant a lot to me.” According to the BSO, Déjardin was chosen from an initial pool of around 200 applicants. Among the audition committee were BSO cello section players who were not themselves auditioning for the position, other BSO principals from across the orchestra, and music director Andris Nel sons. Blue MARCO BORGGREVE Blaise Déjardin succeeds the late Jules Eskin as principal cellist. A native of Strasbourg, Déjardin joined the BSO in 2008. Prior to that, he was a member of the European Union Youth Orchestra and the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester as well as a founding member of the Boston-based conductorless chamber or- chestra A Far Cry. In 2010, along with three other BSO section players, he cofounded the Boston Cello Quartet. Déjardin’s start date as principal has not yet been announced, but according to an orchestra spokesperson, it will likely be this summer at Tanglewood. This type of position includes a one-year probationary period. The appointment also means that Déjardin will join the Boston Symphony Chamber Players. “It will soon be 10 years that I’ve played in the orchestra,” Déjardin said. “I’ve looked up to all of the other principals and listened carefully to how they are playing. Each principal brings such a wonderful personality and sound and quality — that’s always been inspiring to me as a section player, even without knowing I’d ever get this job. It pushed me to keep improving and to just enjoy the music.” Jeremy Eichler of the Globe staff contributed. Read local celebrity news at www.bostonglobe.com/names.

Kathy Griffin says she hopes to make her US comeback by laughing about the disturbing photograph that got her in hot water with the feds and almost killed her career. But she also has this warning amid the jokes: ‘‘If it happened to me it can happen to you.’’ Griffin is embarking this summer on a North American tour that kicks off a year after she was widely condemned for posing for a picture in which she gripped a bloodied rendering of President Trump’s head. Ten months on, she is unbowed. ‘‘I’m the same girl I’ve always been — just a hard-working, obnoxious, red-haired comedy girl. The whole time I’ve been consistent in just trying to make you laugh,’’ she told the Associated Press. ‘‘Am I shocking sometimes? For sure. Do I go too far? I hope so. That’s my job.’’ She lost income, received death threats, was denounced by Trump, landed on an Interpol criminal list, and was afraid to leave her home. She said she was under investigation by the Department of Justice for two months. ‘‘It shouldn’t happen to an American citizen,’’ she said. Griffin said she understands if people don’t like the photo, but it is protected speech. ‘‘If there’s one amendment I’m familiar with it’s the First Amendment. I know it back and forth and it’s how I make my living.’’ The comedian’s life changed radically last May when the image came out: ‘‘I really never thought that photo would take off at all. Like I’ve been doing ‘shocking’ things my whole career.’’ She called the fallout ‘‘faux-outrage.’’ She said there were a few missteps, including a hastily put-together apology video followed by a ‘‘disastrous’’ press conference with attorney Lisa Bloom in which she called Trump a ‘‘bully’’ and only worsened the stillspiraling disaster. CHRIS PIZZELLO/INVISION/AP Kathy Griffin’s comeback tour includes a stop at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre June 21. During those dark days, Griffin said many colleagues like Anderson Cooper turned away but one celebrity reached out — Jim Carrey, someone she didn’t know that well. He advised her to find the comedy in her absurd situation. ‘‘It was really meaningful to me that he called,’’ she said. ‘‘Jim’s advice was right on, which is: ‘Lean into this topic and you'll find the comedy.’ And luckily I found a lot of comedy while hibernating.’’ This summer she plans to tour in Mexico, Canada, and the United States, including a stop in Boston June 21 at the Boch Center Shubert Theatre. The tour name alone is defiant: The Laugh Your Head Off World Tour. ‘‘I’m trying to sort of get people to forgive me and get people to come back to me or give me a chance,” she said. “And it’s interesting. It’s really like I’m starting all over again,’’ she said. (AP) Rogen: Daniels long ago hinted at affair A new character has emerged in the continuing drama between adult film actress Stormy Daniels and Presi dent Trump. Seth Rogen, who has appeared in ‘‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’’ and ‘‘Knocked Up,’’ two films that featured cameos by Daniels, said in a recent interview that he has known about the affair between the porn star and the future president for more than a decade. ‘‘I've known Stormy Daniels a long time, and I'll be honest, she may have mentioned some of this stuff around 10 years ago,’’ Rogen told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in an episode that aired Monday. Daniels, who is suing the president, alleges that the two had a sexual relationship in 2006, a claim the White House denies. The Judd Apatow comedies in which Daniels appeared were released in 2005 and 2007. According to Rogen, no one was shocked to learn during filming that Daniels had slept with Trump, then starring in ‘‘The Apprentice.’’ ‘‘At the time, when you asked a porn star who they've been sleeping with and the answer is Donald Trump, it was like the least surprising thing that she could have said,’’ Rogen told DeGeneres. When Trump began his presidential campaign, Rogen didn’t think the fun factoid he knew about Trump would matter to voters. ‘‘As his campaign rolled out, it became clear that no one cared about anything he did, and so it didn’t really occur to me that it would come out or that anyone would care about it,’’ he said. The comedian said that he hasn’t seen Daniels in years but that ‘‘she’s clearly done well with herself.’’ (The Washington Post) ) ‘He was a friend and colleague starting with the first episode of “Columbo” that he wrote and I directed. We . . . stayed connected for 47 years. I will miss Steve terribly.’ STEVEN SPIELBERG, reacting to the death of TV producer Steven Bochco NBC’s exhilarating ‘Jesus Christ Superstar Live’ pulses with energy By Matthew Gilbert GLOBE STAFF There were times during Sunday night’s “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” when the crowd of Jesus’s supporters were like TELEVISION one single character REVIEW on the stage. In hipster-looking styles, glitter, and tattoos, they moved in loose synchronicity, an exuberant and, later in the show, predatory mob. As the choreography brought the racially inclusive group to all corners of the show’s single set, a spare industriallooking space with visible scaffolding, they were like a troupe out of a Madonna or Lady Gaga concert, dancing and singing among the band members and the stars. It was one of the many well-done, energetic things about the production, which once again reminded me of how well “Jesus Christ Superstar,” from Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice, has aged since the album first appeared in 1970. The dancing crowd, reminiscent of “Rent,” too, brought out the increasingly relevant theme of crowd mania, which at one point, saw them taking cellphone paparazzi pictures of Jesus getting beaten. The idea of Jesus as a pop superstar, always present in the Rice and Webber’s story, was brought to the fore quite effectively. That crowd was vibrant, and so was the audience at the Marcy Armory in Brooklyn, who cheered and clapped like a pop audience, not holding back when the stars — John Legend as Jesus, Sara Bareilles as Mary Magdalene, and Brandon Victor Dixon as Judas — first appeared onstage. The NBC Easter special was as much like a concert — thus the title — as it was a theater event, and the outcome was exhilarating. The mob, the Marcy audience, the stars, us — we all had to deal with the intrusions of far too many commercial breaks, threatening to bring down all the get-up-and-go, and yet the pacing never flagged. The show is about the last days of Jesus, but Judas and his complicated feelings are a key element in the story. Dixon, who has played Aaron Burr in “Hamilton,” was a highlight, as his frustration and torment grew across the night. Wisely, he kept his affect down, aware, perhaps, that the cameras require a somewhat less theatrical performance than a live audience.

Oh, Legend was fine, and at times touching, as his voice rose sweetly to the high notes on “Poor Jerusalem.” He made the glamorous side of Jesus — the superstar side — clear. But he lacked the stage presence and charisma you expect from a character who has brought the world to its knees. His voice, too, was perhaps too fine an instrument for some of the rock operatic yelling in the entirely sung-through show. When he pushed too hard, when Jesus’s rage erupts, he seemed more like a crooner than a full-throated singer. Also disappointing: Alice Cooper, who was a dull King Herod. He arrived on stage in a shiny orange suit and sang “King Herod’s Song” almost dutifully. He brought little of the biting irony and vaudevillian mockery that the song calls for and that we expected from the man who sang “I’m Eighteen” and “Billion Dollar Babies.” The other baddies, notably Ben Daniels as Pontius Pilate and Norm Lewis and Jin Ha as the Roman high priests Caiaphas and Annas, were far more compelling, their voices strong and melodic. Bareilles was excellent as Mary Magdalene, bringing warmth, commitment, and distinction to her songs. As with Legend, though, I kept wondering if she’d have gone deeper into the role if the show weren’t a one-off. But despite the quibbles, which included some spotty sound mixing, “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert” was a pleasure throughout. The show both respected the original score while adding a present-day spin and a sense of controlled chaos that kept it all fresh. Matthew Gilbert can be reached at email@example.com.

RYAN/GLOBE STAFF/FILE 2005 Ships are unloaded at Massport’s Conley Terminal in South Boston in this 2005 file photo. US, China plot round two of trade fight F By Evan Horowitz GLOBE STAFF ears of a trade war gained strength Monday — aggravating a stock market sell-off — as China formally retaliated against President Trump’s steel and aluminum tariffs by slapping new duties on more than 100 US exports, including agricultural goods and steel products. What happens next is unclear. As economic attacks go, this one is relatively small, affecting about $3 billion of the $130 billion in US exports to China. But it’s also carefully targeted to inflict maximal damage on a selection of niche industries rather than having a diffuse effect on the US economy as a whole. Ginseng and almond growers, for instance, may not have that much political clout or economic heft, but they are substantial players in their regional homes — ginseng in central Wisconsin, almonds in central California. And China’s decision to aim at mid-market players like these means the concentrated impact could be severe. China’s retaliation is carefully targeted to inﬂict maximal damage on a selection of niche industries. For example: ginseng in central Wisconsin, and almonds in central California. Worse, this may just be phase one of China’s response. Currently, the Trump administration is pursuing two sets of tariffs against Chinese exports: one a limited duty on metals, the other a larger but not-quite-finalized tax on electronics, clothing, and other goods. China’s latest tariffs are a response to the first set. Hence the $3 billion price tag, which is roughly in line with the impact of the steel and aluminum tariffs on China. However, if the Trump administration moves ahead with its grander plans for tariffs on $50 billion to $60 billion of other imports, the Chinese may end up matching those, too, with more damaging restrictions against the soybean industry or aerospace companies like Boeing. Then again, China could also decide not to fight back. Retaliatory tariffs are hardly mandatory, especially given that China has expressed its interest in finding a negotiated solution. Strategy, not vengeance, is likely to determine the next move. And that’s hard to predict, be- Study says analyzing genomes might not inflate health costs QUICK STUDY, Page C4 Sean P. Murphy THE FINE PRINT Some drivers miss out on Real ID as RMV fails to tell the whole story By Sean P. Murphy GLOBE STAFF By Sharon Begley STAT STAT, Page C5 STOCK MARKET, Page C4 INSIDE Brigham and Women’s research offers a positive note for the field The first rigorous study of its kind finds that sequencing people’s genomes might not lead to extensive and expensive follow-up care, according to research from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. “That’s been the critical question that has the field [of medical genetics] very concerned: Will wholeSTAT genome sequencing drive up downstream costs?” said Kurt Christensen of Brigham and Women’s, lead author of the study, published in Genetics in Medicine. To find out, he and his colleagues recruited 100 healthy adults and 100 patients with cardiomyopathy, assigning roughly half of each group to undergo wholegenome sequencing and the other half to have a review of their family medical history. The researchers followed the volunteers for six months after they and their physicians received the sequencing or family history results, reasoning that if people were told they had a genetic variant that increased the chance of having, say, a rare liver ailment, they would seek further testing right away. Over that period, the healthy volunteers who had genome sequencing incurred slightly higher medical costs of $3,670, on average, compared with $2,989 for those who had just a basic family medical history. The two groups had fairly similar numbers of outpatient lab tests (5.5 vs. 4.4) and doctor visits (8.4 vs. 6.9).

In the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency, ebullient investors propelled stock markets to one record high after another. And Trump was the bull-in-chief, celebrating the recordbreaking march as validation of his economic policies. Those days are done. Even after a fast start to 2018, stock markets finished the first quarter down for the year — the first quarterly decline since 2015. It suggested that a period of calm and steadily rising markets had given way to a turbulent new era with a bearish bent. The plunge continued Monday, with the Standard & Poor’s 500 index sinking 2.2 percent. Investors jettisoned shares of financial, technology, and many other businesses, spooked at least in part by a tweet from Trump aimed at one of the country’s biggest companies: Amazon. And China imposed $3 billion of tariffs on US farm goods and other exports, bringing the world’s two largest economies closer to a full-on trade conflict. The Dow Jones industrial average fell as much as 758 points, although major indexes regained some of their losses later in the afternoon. The Dow lost 458.92 points, or 1.9 percent, to 23,644.19. The S&P 500 index gave up 58.99 points, or 2.2 percent, to 2,581.88. The Nasdaq composite slumped 193.33 points, or 2.7 percent, to 6,870.12. The Russell 2000 index of smaller-company stocks fell 36.90 points, or 2.4 percent, to 1,492.53. Monday’s decline left stocks down more than 4 percent so far in 2018. They are now down more than 10 percent from their peak in late January. That means the market has entered a so-called correction — a term used to indicate that the downward trend is more severe and lasting than simply a few days of bearish trading. The stock market is still up more than 20 percent since Nov. 8, 2016, the day Trump won the White House — a roller-coaster ride driven in part by ex- BOLD TYPES Elizabeth Hailer bringing women into Csuites.

Lost in the long lines surrounding the Registry of Motor Vehicles’ chaotic rollout of its new Real ID program is this simple fact: Many drivers will end up paying twice for licenses. Knowing that Massachusetts was moving to the more stringent Real ID, the RMV nonetheless sent notices by the thousands that urged drivers to renew their expiring regular licenses online for $50. But why push people, including those whose licenses weren’t expiring for months, to get and pay for conventional licenses that will be inferior to Real ID in the fall of 2020? That’s what has Maureen O’Brien baffled — and a bit steamed. She got the letter about a month ago, though her license doesn’t expire until the end of August. O’Brien at first felt a pang of gratitude toward the RMV. The letter seemed clearly premised on sparing her the misery of waiting in long lines at an RMV branch office caused by the launch of Real ID last week. Here’s the key portion of the letter: “Please note that our renewal requirements are changing March 26, 2018. Because of the change, there may be long wait times in RMV Service Centers.

It’s not clear if the talks will lead to a deal. Closely held PillPack has raised $118 million in venture funding, the company says on its website. It presorts pills into date- and time-stamped packets for patients who take multiple drugs — common for older people dealing with several chronic conditions. It has also developed pharmacy software that helps coordinate refills, makes sure the shipments are on time, and provides online help for patients. Seniors are a key demographic for Walmart, which runs about 4,700 US pharmacies and has been eyeing how to expand its health care business for years. Walmart also has a deal with insurer Humana Inc. to offer cobranded Medicare drug plans. Last week, Bloomberg News and others reported that Walmart was discussing a closer partnership or merger with Humana. The two companies haven’t commented on the reports, and Bloomberg reported that they are mainly considering a deeper partnership to provide care to consumers at or near their homes, as opposed to an outright merger. FDA won’t review Alkermes depression drug; stock slides By Adam Feuerstein STAT The regulatory plans for Alkermes and its controversial drug for treatmentresistant depression have been upended by the Food and Drug Administration. On Monday, the FDA said it would not review the Alkermes drug, called ALKS-5461, because of “insufficient evidence of overall effectiveness,” the company said in a statement. The FDA told Alkermes that additional “well-controlled clinical trials” would need to be conducted for the drug to be resubmitted. Alkermes shares were battered in response, falling 22 percent to close at $45.23. The FDA’s so-called refuse-to-file letter on ALKS-5461 is a blow to Alkermes, which was counting on the approval of the drug to boost revenue growth. It’s also a black mark on the credibility of CEO Richard Pops, who had been telling investors for months that the ALKS-5461 clinical data were strong enough to secure approval. In its statement Monday, Alkermes said it disagreed with the FDA’s decision and an appeal is planned. The clinical data package filed by Alkermes with the FDA consisted of three phase 3 clinical trials of ALKS-5461 in treatment-resistant depression. Two of the three studies failed to hit their primary endpoints. Alkermes argued the “totality” of the depression data showed ALKS-5461 to be effective. Investors were watching closely not only because of the drug’s importance to Alkermes’ growth story but also as a referendum on the FDA’s willingness to approve drugs based on data from failed clinical trials. While the FDA has shown some flexibility in approval standards lately, Alkermes pushed too far. Shares of Intra-Cellular Therapies fell 9 percent to $19.10 Monday because the company is also seeking FDA approval for a schizophrenia drug based on two clinical trials, one of which failed to achieve its primary endpoint. The Alkermes setback increases the risk that Intra-Cellular will also be turned away after its drug, lumateperone, is submitted mid-year. New state law offers patients more medical data privacy By Priyanka Dayal McCluskey GLOBE STAFF Governor Charlie Baker has signed legislation to give Massachusetts consumers more privacy over their medical information. The law requires health insurers to send forms containing information about medical treatments to the patient who received the care — not to the policyholder. These forms, commonly known as an “explanation of benefits” or a “summary of payments,” contain lists of medical services provided and the amount of money charged, paid, and owed for each service. The law will allow adult children and spouses, for example, to receive these statements directly, so they can keep confidential information about their medical care. This is especially important for sensitive issues such as treatment of mental illness, domestic violence, and sexually transmitted diseases, advocates of the law said. “In this day and age, where so little privacy seems to be left anywhere about anything . . . we should do everything we can to make sure the patient’s privacy is properly protected,” Baker, flanked by lawmakers and advocates, said at a ceremonial bill signing Monday afternoon. (The governor signed the actual bill privately on Friday). The legislation was supported by health care providers, insurers, and other health care groups, as well as the Bostonbased consumer advocacy group Health Care For All. The Massachusetts Association of JOSE LUIS MAGANA/ASSOCIATED PRESS/FILE 2018 Governor Charlie Baker said the law helps ensure that patient privacy is properly protected. Health Plans, a trade group for health insurers, did not initially come out in favor of the measure, which was first proposed several years ago. But insurers now support it. “When we see that there are issues that emerge, and we can try to help correct them, we want to step in and do that, as long as it makes sense,” said Lora Pellegrini, president of the insurers association. “This one just makes common sense.” Priyanka Dayal McCluskey can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

CHRIS MORRIS FOR THE BOSTON GLOBE Poll may help institute’s chief get more women in the Csuites Efforts to bring more women into the C-suite have been slow to gain traction in Massachusetts. Elizabeth Hailer is hoping to step up the pace a bit. To some extent, that’s part of her job description: Hailer (above) became executive director of the Commonwealth Institute, a nonprofit that provides career assistance for women, a little over a year ago. But she’s taking that role to a new level by launching what she calls the state’s first statewide corporate leadership development survey for women’s careers. So far, about 100 companies have responded, and she expects many more to be returned before the window closes later this month. The research firm Chadwick Martin Bailey is conducting the confidential, 20-minute poll. Hailer has help from key sponsors that include American Tower, DentaQuest, Liberty Mutual, the law firm Bowditch & Dewey, and former Boston Fed chief Cathy Minehan. The poll asks various questions aimed at figuring out what companies are doing to develop, retain, and promote women. “The most important thing is to take a snapshot of where we are, what needs to be done going forward, and how we can best move the pipeline of women leaders,” Hailer says. Hailer has also been expanding her group’s membership — the total is approaching 500 individuals and businesses, up 25 percent from a year ago — and this research project should help toward that end. When the institute was started two decades ago, it was essentially a networking group for female CEOs. The mission has since broadened to encompass a variety of executives and entrepreneurs, including the next generation of women leaders. “A lot of people still think it’s [only] for women CEOs, they can’t get in, or it’s too exclusive,” Hailer says. “That’s how it started. But the membership we offer today is very different than what we offered 20 years ago. — JON CHESTO One of Akamai’s original big names is retiring It’s hard to know what the boardroom turnover means for Akamai Technologies Inc. One thing is for certain: Change is coming to the Cambridge company. Most notably, George Conrades, 79, is retiring from the board as of its annual shareholder meeting June 1. But he has already lost his chairman title. Frederic Salerno, the board’s lead independent director, was elevated to the post last week. Few individuals are more associated with Akamai than Conrades, who has been a board member almost since the beginning, in the late 1990s. He was CEO from 1999 through 2005 and later became executive chairman. (Cofounder Tom Leighton, the current CEO, has been there since the beginning.) By the time Conrades arrived at Akamai, he’d already had a successful career in the networking world, with top posts at BBN and then at GTE, after it acquired BBN. “While I am retiring from a formal capacity, Akamai will always remain a part of me,” Conrades says. The announcement Conrades will retire made no mention of activist investor Elliott Management’s stake in the company, or of reports that Akamai hired an investment bank to weigh a possible sale of the company. Akamai and Elliott recently agreed to install two new directors. One of them, Tom Killalea, is a former Ama zon executive. Asked whether Conrades’ retirement was related to the company’s strategic review, a company spokesman offered this in an e-mail: “For the past 20 years, George has made extraordinary contributions to Akamai and has been integral to the company’s success. He’s up for a three-year renewal term, and he decided now, given where he is in his life and his career, that it was the time to retire. It was completely his choice.” — JON CHESTO Among lobbyists, ML is still leader of the pack In Boston’s highly competitive lobbying industry, ML Strategies continues to finish ahead of the crowd. The government relations arm of law firm Mintz Levin received the most revenue from state lobbying of any firm in the city last year, according to statistics from Secretary of State William Galvin’s office. ML scored nearly $3.9 million in lobbying fees, down slightly from $4.1 million in 2016. That was still enough to keep ML ahead of its closest rivals — O’Neill and Associates and Rasky Partners — for another year. Chief executive Steve Tocco takes pride in overseeing a bipartisan team, with operators like former Republican governor Bill Weld working alongside former Democratic state senator Steve Baddour. ML’s client list continues to include companies from a wide range of sectors, such as real estate (Div coWest), energy (NextEra), and nonprofits (New England Aquarium). Casino operator Wynn Resorts remained ML’s top client. The company is likely to keep Tocco and his team busy in 2018, as Wynn works toward completing its $2.4 billion Everett project amid increased scrutiny from the Massachusetts Gam ing Commission because of sexual harassment claims against its founder, former CEO Steve Wynn. Perhaps Tocco’s biggest win last year wasn’t a new client, but a new hire: Tocco lured former House Ways and Means chairman Brian Dempsey away from the State House to be his number two. His previous top lieutenant, former US senator Mo Cow an, left earlier in 2017 to work for General Electric. (GE used to be a client, but state records show the Boston-based company hasn’t enlisted ML for lobbying work in 2018.) Tocco says his firm makes a point of expanding beyond legislative work, to include navigating other facets of government bureaucracy and providing strategic advice. ML helped with permits for the new Om ni hotel proposed for the Seaport, for example. “Pure lobbying is probably only half our practice, walking around Beacon Hill and talking to people,” Tocco says. “That’s always important to have, and you need it. But you don’t have to live and die on the legislative cycle.” — JON CHESTO Can’t keep a secret? Tell us. E-mail Bold Types at email@example.com.

DIVISION OF BANKS FINES LENDINGCLUB $2 MILLION GASOLINE PRICES AT THE PUMP ON THE RISE Agenda The Massachusetts Division of Banks fined LendingClub, a San Francisco-based lender and loan servicer, $2 million for unlicensed activity involving more than 46,000 loans in Massachusetts, and for violating a 2011 consent decree related to smaller loans. LendingClub had agreed in 2011 to surrender its license for making loans under $6,000. But state regulators said the company and a subsidiary, Springstone Financial, have subsequently resumed making small loans in the state for a fee without the proper license. The state says LendingClub also conducted third-party loan servicing in Massachusetts without a license. The company was ordered to stop unlicensed activity and to reimburse its Massachusetts customers any charges above those allowed by state rules. “These actions demonstrate that our agencies will take the necessary measures when needed to protect consumers from unfair practices,” said Consumer Affairs Undersecretary John Chapman, in a statement. LendingClub said the settlement is “another step in putting the legacy issues behind us and moving forward to concentrate on building the business.” — MARGEAUX SIPPELL Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are on the rise.

Shares of the wearable health-device company fell 9.5 percent to $4.62 after Morgan Stanley recommended investors sell the stock, saying Fitbit’s plans to focus more on software instead of devices are uncertain and will take time to bear fruit. Fitbit, which helped pioneer the fitness-tracking industry, has been squeezed between Apple Inc.’s high-end watch and cheaper options by companies like Xiaomi Corp. — BLOOMBERG NEWS Facebook Inc. chief executive Mark Zuckerberg (pictured) hit back against Tim Cook, calling the Apple Inc. CEO’s criticism of the social-media giant “extremely glib.” Cook was asked about Facebook’s privacy crisis last month and called for stronger regulation of user data. A day after, Cook said he “wouldn’t be in this situation” if he were in Zuckerberg’s shoes, in an interview with Recode and MSNBC. While Facebook makes money selling targeted advertisements based on user data, Apple’s profit comes from hardware products like the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Zuckerberg responded in an interview with Vox, published Monday: “I find that argument — that if you’re not paying, that somehow we can’t care about you — to be extremely glib and not at all aligned with the truth. There are a lot of people who can’t afford to pay” for a service and that having an “advertising-supported model is the only rational model that can support building this service to reach people. If you want to build a service which is not just serving rich people, then you need to have something that people can afford.” Meanwhile, Missouri’s Republican attorney general is launching a wide-ranging probe into Facebook Inc.’s use of personal data.

At first, the prospect of Republicans controlling the White House and both houses of Congress thrilled investors. They anticipated a wave of regulatory rollbacks and the slashing of corporate and personal tax rates. Many of those dreams have been realized, culminating in Trump signing a huge tax cut into law in December. When the S&P 500 notched its high-water mark of 2872.87 on Jan. 26, it represented a roughly 325 percent increase since March 2009. But since February, a toxic stew of factors — many but certainly not all of them emanating from Washington — has polluted what had been the market’s placidly rising waters. And there’s little prospect of the messes dissipating anytime soon. First there was the risk that the economy might be growing too fast, which could prompt central banks to hike interest rates sooner than expected. Then there was the risk of a trade war ignited by the White House imposing tariffs on certain products, an action that quickly prompted countries like China to erect trade barriers of their own. Next came the threat of a government crackdown on technology companies, after revelations of their misuse of customer data. Monday ’s dose of unnerving news was a presidential tweet aimed at Amazon, which Trump accused of hurting the United States Postal Service. Trump’s feud with the company has been going on sporadically since before he became president, but the onslaught has accelerated lately. On Monday, Trump tweeted that the Post Office loses money by working with Amazon “and this will be changed.” In the face of these factors, the optimism of just two months ago has all but evaporated. The market’s decline over the past two months has been broadbased. Six of the 11 sectors included in the S&P 500 index are down more than 10 percent from the market high in late January. On any given day, a particular sector might be clobbered. One day it could be industrial companies such as Boeing or Caterpillar, which export lots of products and therefore could be harmed in a trade war. Another day could bring declines to technology companies like Facebook and Twitter, whose profits are vul- nerable to tougher government regulation of social media networks. The next day it could be energy and financial companies, whose fortunes would be diminished if the economy slows. On Monday, just 13 stocks in the S&P 500 rose. T h e m e a t p r o d u c e r Ty s o n dropped more than 6 percent, after China imposed duties on pork and fruit from the United States in response to the tariffs that the Trump administration has imposed on products imported from China. China is one of Tyson’s most important export markets. Lean hog futures — which reflect the anticipated prices of pig carcasses — were down 3.9 percent. After Trump’s complaint about Amazon, it, too, was a big loser, falling 5.2 percent. Other giant tech firms were sucked into the downdraft. Microsoft dropped 3 percent. Facebook tumbled 2.8 percent, bringing its year-to-date decline to 14.4 percent. And Intel dove 6 percent after a Bloomberg News report that Apple was planning to use its own chips in its computers instead of Intel processors. Six of the 11 sectors included in the S&P 500 index are down more than 10 percent from the market high in late January. Material from the Associated Press was used in this report. US, China plot second round of trade fight uQUICK STUDY Continued from Page C1 Markets JUSTIN LANE/EUROPEAN PRESSPHOTO AGENCY/SHUTTERSTOCK A trader worked on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange with a screen in the background showing the Dow Jones industrial average as the closing bell drew near. DOW JONES industrial average cause it depends not only on China’s assessment of what they’re likely to gain — and lose — from additional tariffs, but also their best guess about how Trump himself will play this tariff-escalating game. Which leaves several possibilities. China could back down. If its leaders judge the risks of a trade war too great, or the actions of Trump dangerously unpredictable, they may limit their response to US tariffs, preferring to resolve the issue through direct negotiation or by mounting a challenge at the World Trade Organization. Alternatively, China could continue matching US moves in hopes of finding a stalemate situation where tariffs between China and the United States drift higher but without triggering a rising spiral. Then, they might hope to maintain this new equilibrium until a new US administration takes office or they otherwise feel their negotiating position has strengthened. But what worries the world, and has rattled investors, is the last possibility: an escalating trade war, where both countries continue to introduce tariffs in the belief that they can outlast any short-term econom- DAVID L. RYAN/GLOBE STAFF/FILE 2006 ic damage and tilt the bilateral trade relationship in their favor. Monday’s market decline is being driven by tech stocks like Amazon and Tesla, but companies dependent on global trade, including Caterpillar and Boeing, also fell. If a full-on trade war does erupt, there may be no winner. Proliferating trade restrictions would hurt companies on both sides of the Pacific, forcing many to scramble for new customers, new suppliers, and new sources of labor. Trump’s leverage has improved in recent weeks, with the departure of his free-trade-supporting adviser Gary Cohn. Now, his economic team is more unified, which should lead to better-coordinated approaches, and more credibility. But he’ll be hampered by a lack of public support, not to mention substantial skepticism from members of his own party. Meanwhile, Chinese President Xi Jinping has the freedom that comes with being permanent head of an authoritarian government, though even he knows that continued Communist Party control depends on the ability to maintain strong economic growth. In that sense, an exchange of tariffs may be as bad for political stability as for Chinese businesses and consumers. Both countries, in other words, have good reason to avoid a trade war, and lots of ways to back down. But given that China has now introduced a set of matching tariffs, it seems a first escape hatch has now closed while the path to quick resolution has slightly narrowed.

Why didn’t the RMV level with her about Real ID in its letter? Obviously, the RMV knew it was coming. It made a veiled reference to it — the “change” in requirements on March 26. Had she known, O’Brien would have waited. Now she will have to pay an extra $25 to upgrade her regular license. Real ID is a much more potent version of a standard driver’s license (and state ID, for those who don’t drive). Congress mandated it in 2005 as a homeland security measure. Drivers not concerned with boarding planes or going to federal buildings can still opt for a standard license. Most states have already gone through the transition that’s now happening in Massachusetts. The overwhelming majority of people in those states chose Real ID over a standard one, even though there’s more hassle involved in obtaining it, such as presenting more documentation and doing it in person. rather than online. Simply put, it’s a far superior form of identification. What was left unsaid in that letter to O’Brien and some 285,000 other drivers was that anyone who followed the RMV’s advice and renewed a license now would miss the chance to get a Real ID several weeks later. O’Brien paid $50 for a license good for five years, but basically obsolete in October 2020, so she gets only 2½ years out of it — a $25 value. “I am flabbergasted by the RMV’s nondisclosure,” O’Brien wrote in an e-mail to me. “I am angry the RMV sent out this letter without telling its customers what the facts were.” She called it “a disservice.” I agree, but the more questions I asked the fewer answers I got. The RMV falls under the purview of Secretary of Transportation Stephanie Pollack, but she declined to be interviewed, and an RMV spokeswoman approached my list of written questions as if it were a menu from which the agency could pick and choose whether to answer. So let me give you my best analysis. I figure RMV managers understood how much of a strain introducing Real ID would put on the agency’s branch offices. This is an election year, and Governor Charlie Baker has gotten a lot of mileage (rightly or not) out of a reputation for being an able manager of basic services. One way to hedge against howls of protest at branch offices would be to maximize the number of people who stay home and renew online. Hence, the letter — or half a letter, I’d call it. I wrote to the RMV that I felt its letter was “devious and deceptive,” sent to “trick” drivers into forgoing a full-fledged Real ID for the sake of shorter lines. The RMV did not reply directly to that, but a spokeswoman wrote that state transportation officials wanted to “encourage behavior that would benefit the customer.” If so, mixed results, at best, I’d say. Like O’Brien, Paulette RenaultCaragianes feels cheated by the RMV. She also renewed last month, not knowing that the Registry was about to unveil Real ID. Everyone makes mistakes, she said, and the RMV ought to own up to this one. “I’m beside myself that they can’t acknowledge, ‘Yep, we left something out that should have been in that letter,’ ” she told me. “The RMV solicited and encouraged online renewal. You asked me to come to your party, RMV. I didn’t find the renew option on my own. You’re responsible.” Before contacting me, RenaultCaragianes had written to the RMV in an unsuccessful attempt to get a waiver of the $25 upgrade fee. (That’s the simple fix the RMV needs to do for everyone misled by the letter.) When she pressed her case in a second note, the RMV replied: “Thank you for your feedback.” You may read that as: “Go away.” I do. Sean P. Murphy can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

That counterintuitive finding was probably the result of a couple of the heart patients in the family medical history group being hospitalized for reasons unrelated to their participation in the study, Christensen said. Excluding hospitalizations, costs for the sequencing group averaged $5,392, compared to $4,692 for the family history group. Their number of doctor visits (7.8 vs. 7.2) was comparable, though those who were sequenced averaged 9.5 outpatient lab tests, compared to 6.9 for the family history group. The spending difference isn’t nothing, of course, and multiplied by hundreds of millions of people (if genome sequencing becomes as routine as, say, cholesterol tests) it would add up to billions of dollars. But sequencing is a one-time cost, not a recurring one. In the study the sequencing, including interpreting the results, cost about $5,000, and that has been falling quickly. Overall, said medical geneticist and coauthor Dr. Robert Green of Brigham and Women’s, “downstream medical costs of sequencing may be far more modest than the common narrative suggests.” Green leads the MedSeq project, which studies how genome sequencing can be integrated into clinical practice. The modest downstream costs cannot be explained by the sequencing not finding any red flags: 18 percent of the healthy patients had a genetic variant that was known to cause disease or likely to do so. Of the cardiology patients, half had a variant associated with heart disease, and 16 percent had one or more associated with another disorder. The physicians in the study Business AFP/GETTY IMAGES “seem to be responding responsibly” to the sequencing results, Christensen said, not ordering countless follow-up tests or frequent screening out of fear that they’ll miss signs of the disease the patient is at risk for. Whether every physician would react that way is unclear, however. Surveys show that doctors are not well-versed in genetics or statistics. That has spurred concern they’ll assume the worst of genetic variants that experts classify as possibly (but far from definitely) pathogenic or of unknown significance, and order endless, costly screening and other tests out of an abundance of caution or in the practice of defensive medicine. “If someone has whole-genome sequencing and it finds low-penetrant mutations,” those that might or might not cause disease, “all the problems of endless testing can occur,” said molecular geneticist Madhuri Hegde, chief scientific officer of global lab testing at PerkinElmer Inc. and an expert on genetic testing, who was not involved in the study. It’s particularly critical, she said, not to order tests, or panic, when a patient has what’s called a variant of unknown significance, meaning studies are ambiguous about whether it causes disease. “That’s why genetic counseling is so important,” Hegde said. “Physi- cians need to stick to giving medical advice and have genetic counselors interpret genetic results.” That’s easier said than done, however, since the United States has a shortage of genetic counselors. In the study, the physicians all had access to a genome resource center, as well as knowledgeable academic colleagues, to help them interpret sequencing results. Only a study that enrolls more patients and follows them longer and that uses community physicians rather than academic ones, who don’t have special access to genome expertise, can tell whether the encouraging results are likely to be true in general. Christensen and his colleagues plan to follow more patients for at least five years. It’s even possible that widespread genome sequencing could save money for the health care system. “If you can identify individuals who are asymptomatic but have an actionable mutation,” such as one causing breast or colorectal cancer, Hegde said, “you can do prophylactic surgery or increased screening, and probably save a lot of dollars” if the person never develops cancer.

A big fear with sequencing individual patients’ genomes has been that finding genetic variants that may or may not cause health problems will lead to drastic increases in health care costs. Amazon is planning to lease a whole new building in the Seaport District to house 2,000 new employees. Monday we got our first pictures of what that building could look like. WS Development released images of the building it would construct for Amazon on a pedestrian promenade. Designed by architecture firm Gensler, it would have 15 floors of office space above a two-story retail “paseo” that would be open to the public. The proposal is scheduled to be reviewed Tuesday by the Boston Civic Design Commission. It has already received its major permits from the Boston Planning and Development Agency. Amazon hasn’ t signed a lease yet, which may be why there’s no trademark orange arrow on the facade. But the company is in advanced negotiations with WS and last month was approved for $5 million in city property tax breaks to bring 2,000 jobs to the site. Amazon is scheduled to move in in 2021, and as part of the deal, the company has an option to lease a second building across the street should it need more room to grow.

Musk joke fails amid Tesla cash burn Stock price falls as Model 3 struggles By Craig Trudell BLOOMBERG NEWS Tesla Inc. investors aren’t laughing after Elon Musk’s April Fools’ Day joke about bankruptcy, with the automaker’s cash reserves at risk amid the monthslong struggle to build the critical Model 3 sedan. After the steepest monthly drop in more than seven years, Tesla shares fell as much as 8.1 percent on Monday, before closing down more than 5 percent at $252.48. Unsecured bonds the company issued in August traded near record intraday lows. Analysts widely expect the company to soon report that Model 3 production trailed its projection of 2,500 units during the last week of March. T h e Mo d e l 3 w o e s a r e a greater risk to Tesla than the fatal crash involving a Model X driver using Autopilot, a related US regulator’s investigation, and a separate Model S recall, all of which have weighed on investor sentiment since last week. Analysts at Jefferies Group LLC and Moody’s Investors Service estimate that Tesla may need to raise $2 billion to $3 billion in capital. That’s in large part because the slow build of Model 3 has limited returns on investments the company made to build its first mass-market car. “What seemed to be a shortterm issue has now been going on for more than three quar- BRENDAN SMIALOWSKI/AFP/GETTY IMAGES CEO Elon Musk’s April Fools’ Day tweet about bankruptcy was not well received by investors. ters,” Philippe Houchois, an analyst at Jefferies, said Monday o n B l o om b e rg Te l e v i s i o n . “Management will need to address a proper funding plan” and “reassure investors that they’ve got the funds to even potentially announce some further delay in the ability to ramp the production.” Musk told employees in an e-mail early Monday morning that the electric-car maker may exceed a weekly production rate of 2,000 Model 3 sedans, according to the blog Jalopnik. “If things go as planned today, we will comfortably exceed that number over a seven day period!” Musk wrote in the email sent at 3:01 a.m. Monday California time, Jalopnik said. A Tesla spokesman didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment on the report. Some analysts were speculating Tesla’s stock may rally if p r o d u c t i o n e x c e e d s Wa l l Street’s lowered expectations. Tesla’s 5.3 percent bonds due 2025 were trading at 86.9 cents on the dollar at 2:38 p.m. in New York on Monday, Trace bond price data show. Shareholders voted in favor of a pay package valued at $2.6 billion for Musk last month. The 46-year-old billionaire has seen his fortune tumble since then, with Tesla shares plunging 22 percent in March, their worst month since December 2010. That didn’t stop Musk from posting some playful April Fools’ Day tweets. “Despite intense efforts to raise money, including a lastditch mass sale of Easter eggs, we are sad to report that Tesla has gone completely and totally bankrupt,” the chief executive wrote Sunday. Another post included a photo of Musk and a message that he “was found passed out against a Tesla Model 3, surrounded by ‘Teslaquilla’ bottles, the tracks of dried tears still visible on his cheeks.” On Monday, Musk tweeted that he wouldn’t have joked about Tesla going bankrupt if he thought there was any chance it would happen. He also responded to a National Transportation Safety Board spokesman who commented over the weekend that the agency was unhappy that Tesla shared information about the death of a Model X driver. The agency is looking into all aspects of the March 23 crash, including reports that the driver had previously raised concerns about Tesla’s driver-assistance system Autopilot. The NTSB requires companies that are parties to its investigations to limit information released during its probes. “Lot of respect for NTSB, but NHTSA regulates cars, not NTSB, which is an advisory body,” Musk tweeted, referring to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. “Tesla releases critical crash data affecting public safety immediately and always will. To do otherwise would be unsafe.” The tongue-in-cheek bankruptcy posts by Musk were likely frustrating to Tesla’s investor relations team, James Albertine, an analyst at Consumer Edge Research who recommends buying the shares, wrote in a report Monday. He c a l l e d t h e m “ p o o r l y timed,” though he added that “there is likely nothing to see here.” NEW YORK — John Flannery’s reshaping of General Electric Co. is underway. After taking the helm last year, the chief executive promised to shed businesses — from lighting to locomotives — in a bid to simplify the beleaguered manufacturer. Complexity, he said, was at the root of many of Boston-based GE’s problems. He started following through on Monday, when one of the company’s largest divis i o n s , G E He a l t h c a r e , a n nounced a deal to sell a trio of information-technology businesses to the private equity firm Veritas Capital. The $1.05 billion cash transaction is expected to close in the third quarter. The sale marks one of the first significant portfolio moves since Flannery trumpeted a plan to exit at least $20 billion worth of businesses. The revamp, along with cost cuts and culture change, is a pillar of Flannery’s bid to pull GE out of one of the deepest slumps in its 126-year history. The company’s stock has languished at the bottom of the Dow Jones industrial average for more than a year as GE grapples with cash-flow challenges and weak demand for industrial equipment. While investors have pressed for dramatic changes, the midday announcement failed to lift GE’s stock. It fell 2.7 percent to close at $13.12 amid a broad market decline. Veritas, which recently invested in Truven Health Analytics and Verscend Technologies, plans to buy GE Healthcare’s assets in ambulatory care management, enterprise financial management, and workforce management. The investment firm said it would work with GE executives to form a stand-alone business with the units. The new company should benefit from an “urgent need to digitalize our health-care system,” Veritas CEO Ramzi Musallam said in the statement. The GE assets are focused primarily on hospital workflow and administrative IT functions. With the sale, GE Healthcare plans to sharpen its focus on software-related clinical care. Health care has long drawn scrutiny from GE investors. The division, the company’s third-largest, with 2017 sales of $19 billion, is a solid cash generator and boasts high-growth markets such as life sciences. But some shareholders and ana l y s t s h av e a r g u e d t h a t i t doesn’t fit as well with GE’s primary business of making industrial equipment, such as jet engines and gas turbines. Supreme Court rules for car dealerships in pay case By Jessica Gresko ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled Monday that car dealerships’ service advisers, like car salesmen and mechanics, are exempt under federal law from overtime pay requirements. The court ruled 5-4 that service advisers, who greet customers and propose various repair services, are salespeople. The case affects the more than 18,000 dealerships nationwide. Together, they employ more than 100,000 service advisers. The case before the court involved a Mercedes-Benz dealership in Encino, Calif., and several current and former service advisers. Each side had a different interpretation of the Fair Labor Standards Act, which says that ‘‘any salesman . . . primarily engaged in selling or servicing automobiles’’ doesn’t have to be paid overtime. The dealership argued that the definition of salesman clearly includes service advisers, who have a range of job responsibilities from helping to diagnose mechanical problems to preparing price estimates for repairs. Service advisers had argued that they weren’t covered by the definition. Justice Clarence Thomas wrote in a majority opinion that the ‘‘ordinary meaning of ‘salesman’ is someone who sells goods or services’’ and that service advisers ‘‘do precisely that.’’ In a dissent, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote that because service advisers ‘‘neither sell nor repair automobiles’’ they should not be exempt from overtime payments. The issue came to the high court after the Department of Labor changed its interpretation of the Fair Labor Standards Act in 2011. For the three decades up to then, the department operated under the view that service advisers didn’t have to be paid overtime. Trump lauds Sinclair in tiff over ‘fake news’ By Travis Andersen GLOBE STAFF JOIN THE SPRING HOUSE HUNT Whether you’re new to the city, a ﬁrst-time homebuyer, or simply looking for your next remodeling project, we’ve got you covered. Visit RealEstate.boston.com President Trump lavished praise Monday on the Sinclair Broadcast Group, the owner of nearly 200 television stations that recently directed news anchors to read a message decrying “biased and false” reports. “So funny to watch Fake News Networks, among the most dishonest groups of people I have ever dealt with, criticize Sinclair Broadcasting for being biased,” Trump tweeted Monday. “Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke.” The tweet followed a widelyviewed video montage of television anchors from around the country reading from a script decrying “biased and false” reports, in a message with striking parallels to Trump’s “fake news” mantra. Sinclair employs Boris Ephshteyn, a former Trump aide, as its chief political analyst. The broadcaster is seeking federal approval to buy Tribune Media Co. in a $3.9 billion deal. One of Trump’s favorite targets, CNN, posted a story Monday quoting an unnamed Sinclair employee who said the onair advisory “sickens me.” Among the anchors who read the message were Alison Bologna and Frank Coletta of WJAR-TV in Providence.

WJAR, a major player in the Rhode Island and Southeastern Massachusetts markets, declined to comment Monday morning. A transcript of the on-air advisory posted to Deadspin read in part, “The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common on social media. . . . More alarming, some media outlets publish these same fake stories . . . stories that just aren’t true, without checking facts first.” The script went on to accuse unnamed reporters of using “their platforms to push their own personal bias and agenda” to control what people think. On Monday morning, Brian Stelter of CNN posted an article quoting an investigative reporter at Sinclair who said, “It sickens me the way this company is encroaching upon trusted news brands in rural markets.” The reporter spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Their stints on the disabled list will not be long. Steven Wright is a little further behind in his recovery but is on track to be sprung from Fort Myers a few weeks later. That makes every game Brian Johnson starts an important one for more than the obvious reasons. Johnson’s hold on a rotation spot into late April is tenuous. But he’s also pitching to show the Red Sox he can be trusted when the inevitable need for a starter arises later in the season. So consider Monday night’s game against the Miami Marlins to be something manager Alex Cora will file away for future consideration. Johnson went six innings and allowed one run as the Red Sox continued their good start to the season with a 7-3 victory. It has come against the Rays and Marlins, two teams far more interested in saving money than winning games at the moment, but the Sox are 4-1 with another game against the Marlins on Tuesday before heading back to Boston and Thursday’s home opener in America’s Most Beloved Igloo. “I can’t say I’m surprised because this is what we should be doing,” Mookie Betts said. “The pitching has been great and we’re feeding off that.” On a night when he wanted to rest a few of his primary relievers, Cora needed 18 outs from Johnson. He got exactly that. The lefthander allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out five. “He was excellent. We needed this one. We needed him to go deep in the game,” Cora said. “He did an outstanding job.” In Hector Velazquez (who won Sunday) and Johnson, the Red Sox have two starters they feel they can count on when the manager wants to give extra rest to Chris Sale, David Price, or RED SOX, Page D2 LYNNE SLADKY/ASSOCIATED PRESS Catcher Christian Vazquez’s two-run double to left in the fourth inning gave the Red Sox a 3-1 lead over the Marlins at Miami on Monday night.

They are hoping no more anvils plunge onto their heads. The Bruins have endured a cartoonish season of wretched luck. Brandon Carlo and Riley Nash are the latest poor fellows to have bank vaults whistle out of the sky and land on their feet. As of Sunday, the ringing in Nash’s right ear — the center required 40-plus stitches after taking a Torey Krug shot to the head on Saturday — had waned to the degree that the Bruins considered him a possibility to rejoin the team in Florida, either in Tampa or Sunrise. No such brightness is in Carlo’s short-term future. Carlo’s left leg has been compromised to the point that faces promptly droop when the hard-luck defenseman’s name is mentioned. Villanova 79 SAN ANTONIO — They chanted his name from the cheap seats: ‘‘Di-Vin-cenMichigan 62 zo, Di-Vin-cen-zo.’’ By the time Donte Di- On baseball, D3 ASSOCIATED PRESS ON HOCKEY, Page D5 DAVID J. PHILLIP/ASSOCIATED PRESS Villanova won its second national championship in three seasons with a rout of Michigan on Monday. Red Sox’ Ramirez is feeling good after another big night in Miami. Vincenzo was done doing his damage, Villanova had another title and college basketball had its newest star. The redhead kid with the nickname Big Ragu scored 31 points Monday to lift the top-seeded Wildcats to another blowout tournament victory — this time 79-62 over Michigan for its second title in three seasons. Both came within the confines of the Lone Star State after Villanova won it all two years ago in Houston, some 200 miles away. DiVincenzo, a 6-foot-5-inch sophomore guard from Wilmington, Del., had 18 first-half points to help the Wildcats (36-4) pull ahead at halftime, 37-28, then scored nine straight for Villanova midway through the second to put the game away — capped by a 3-pointer he punctuated VILLANOVA, Page D2 Pondering Patriots Why it’s foolish to consider trading Gronk, and other thoughts.

D5 D2 Sports T h e B o s t o n G l o b e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 Johnson spot on as Sox win 4th straight uRED SOX Continued from Page D1 Rick Porcello. “It’s important because we know that we have to take care o f t h e s e g u y s ,” C o r a s a i d . “When you have deep starting pitching, it will help us. We can pick our spots . . . Right now, we feel better.” Johnson finished off what was an excellent first turn through the rotation for the Red Sox. The starters have pitched 30 innings and allowed three runs on 22 hits with 7 walks and 28 strikeouts. “It was huge. You see one guy go out there and do well and you want to repeat that,” Johnson said. “I think that’s how it works.” After scoring 10 runs in the four games at Tampa Bay, the offense broke loose. The Sox had 12 hits, five for extra bases. Outside of Johnson, every player in the lineup either scored a run or drove one in. And that was with J.D. Martinez getting a day off. “Just stay with the process,” Cora said. “We’re not preaching launch angle or hit the ball in the air. We’re preaching swing at strikes. When we do that, we’re going to be better.” Trevor Richards was recalled from the minors to make the start for the Marlins. The 24-year-old righthander was making his major league debut. For three innings, Richards lived the dream. He was working on a two-hit shutout and had struck out four. But the second time through the order changed that. With two outs in the fourth inning, Xander Bogaerts reached on a dribbler that hugged the third base line and stayed fair. Eduardo Nunez then lined a double to left field and Bogaerts scored. Jackie Bradley Jr. drew a walk to keep the inning alive and two runs scored when Christian Vazquez also doubled to left field. Bradley, running hard with two outs, scored without a throw to the plate. W i t h Jo h n s o n o n d e c k , Vazquez knew the Marlins would pitch him carefully. They should have just walked him intentionally. Richards left a slider in the lower third of the strike zone and Vazquez didn’t wait to see if he would get another one. The lead grew to 5-1 in the fifth inning. Andrew Benintendi grounded a ball to the right side and cursed as he left the batter’s box. Richards had a play, but went to cover first base instead. First baseman Justin Bour was left trying to flip the ball behind his back and that didn’t work. “I’ll take it,” said Benintendi, who had been 0 for 13. Hanley Ramirez then jumped on a high slider and sent it soaring to left field for his first home run. The ball landed in the Marlins bullpen. It was Ramirez’s first home run at Marlins Park since July 16, 2012, when he was with Miami. They traded him to the Los Angeles Dodgers a week later.

MARK BROWN/GETTY IMAGES Xander Bogaerts avoids Cameron Maybin to turn an inning-ending double play in the fourth Monday night in Miami. Cora hung out with ‘Rock’ star He recalls special times at UMiami By Peter Abraham GLOBE STAFF MIAMI — Alex Cora played in the College World Series three times for the University of Miami. LitRED SOX tle did he NOTEBOOK know he also hung out with one of the most famous people in the world one night. Cora once played video games in a dorm room with Hurricanes football player Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. It was PlayStation, to be exact. “We didn’t know. We went to his room and we were playing and all of a sudden 10 years later he was a superstar,” Cora said. Cora has not had any contact with Johnson since. “I don’t think he knows who I am, or that I played PlayStation with him, but I can say I did,” Cora said. Cora’s connection to the Hurricanes was originally through former Miami righthander Alex Fernandez. Joey Cora played with Fernandez with the Chicago White Sox from 1991-94 and asked him to pass along word that his brother was interested in playing college baseball. Fernandez contacted his pitching coach at Miami, Lazer Collazo, and soon legendary Hurricanes recruiting coordinator Turtle Thomas went to see Cora play at a summer tournament in Battle Creek, Mich. Thomas was impressed and Cora was offered a scholarship. Florida State also was interested. “I’ll say it now, it was either MARK BROWN/GETTY IMAGES Red Sox spot starter Brian Johnson yielded one run and six hits in six innings in his successful season debut. Miami or FSU, honestly,” Cora said. “My first official visit, it was to Miami. That was the only visit, I canceled everybody else and decided to come here.” The Hurricanes were a football powerhouse with Warren Sapp and Ray Lewis on campus at the time. Johnson, who was known then as “Dewey,” was a backup defensive lineman on those teams. After his football career sputtered out, Johnson turned to wrestling in 1996 and has since become world famous as an actor. Cora still has a close association with Miami. Hurricanes coach Jim Morris and pitching coach J.D. Arteaga were expected to stop by Marlins Park during the series. “Those three years that I spent here, I had a blast,” Cora said. “I grew up a lot, not only as a player but as a person. This is my second home. I have 25 people coming [to the game]. “There’s something about this place, it’s pretty special. I’m a ’Cane for life. I love the Hurricanes. I love this city. It’s fun to be here.” Starters on track Drew Pomeranz returned to Fort Myers on Monday and pitched five innings in a minor league game. It was his latest step in returning from a forearm strain. Eduardo Rodriguez will make the trip to Fenway South on Tuesday with the goal of going six innings in a minor league game. He is on the disabled list recovering from knee surgery. Pomeranz’s next start is expected to be with one of the minor league affiliates on a rehab assignment. That could be as soon as Saturday. For Rodriguez, it could be Sunday. “Most likely,” Cora said. Cora speculated that those Donte’s inferno sparks Villanova to title romp uVILLANOVA Continued from Page D1 CHRIS STEPPIG/ASSOCIATED PRESS Villanova’s Donte DiVincenzo drives for 2 of his 31 points in the NCAA title game. with a wink over to T V announcers Jim Nantz and Bill Raftery on the sideline. Villanova, which emerged from Boston as the East Region champions, won all six games by double digits over this tournament run, joining Michigan State (2000), Duke (2001) and North Carolina (2009) in that rare air. One key question: Could this be one of the best teams of alltime? Maybe so, considering the way Jay Wright’s team dismantled everyone in front of it in a tournament that was dripping with upsets, underdogs and parity. Maybe so, considering the Wildcats won in seemingly every way imaginable. This victory came two nights after they set a Final Four record with 18 3-pointers, and one week after they relied more on defense in a win over Texas Tech in the Elite Eight. That debate’s for later. DiVincenzo squashed any questions about this game with a 10-for-15 shooting night that was better than that. He opened his game-sealing run with an around-the-back dribble to get to the hoop and get fouled. On the other end, he delivered a two-handed rejection of Michigan’s Charles Matthews, when Matthews tried to bring it into the paint. The 3-pointer that sealed it came from a big step behind the arc; yes, the man was feeling it. About the only drama as the night closed was whether DiVincenzo could unwrap himself from his teammates’ mob hug to toss the ball underhanded toward the scoreboard. He succeeded there, too. The Wolverines (33-8), who earned a berth in the national championship after knocking off tournament darling Loyola Chicago in the national semifinals Saturday, were led by Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman’s 23 points. games would be with Single A Salem or Single A Greenville because of the cold weather in New England. Triple A Pawtucket is home this weekend and Double A Portland is at Binghamton. Once Pomeranz and Rodriguez show they are capable of six innings and/or 90 pitches in game conditions, they would be ready to come off the disabled list. Steven Wright has restarted his throwing program after getting a platelet-rich plasma injection in his surgically repaired left knee last week. He threw a bullpen session on Sunday and is expected to pitch in a game later this week. Reliever Tyler Thornburg, who is returning from shoulder surgery, is scheduled for an inning on Tuesday. Because he has not pitched since 2016, his rehab assignment is expected to take some time once it starts. Rotation continues J.D.

Miami brings out best in Ramirez Nick Cafardo ON BASEBALL MIAMI – Hanley Ramirez befriended a little boy dealing with an affliction before Monday’s game against the Marlins and told him, “If I hit a home run, I’m going to give you my jersey.” He hit a home run and then after the game ended, true to his word, Ramirez took the jersey off his back and handed it to the boy and signed it. The boy was overcome with joy. A memorable night for Ramirez in his hometown, at his home ballpark, against the team that employed him for nearly seven years. “I gave him a hug and told him I’ll give him a jersey,” Ramirez said. “When you see something like that, it’s tough. It can happen to anybody.” It was an emotional ending to an important night for Ramirez, who homered, singled, stole a base, and played well defensively in Boston’s 7-3 win over the Marlins. Ramirez has half-kidded about being a 30-30 guy this year. He was one for the Marlins in 2008. Ten years later, he has two stolen bases and one homer through five games. “That’s 30-30 right there,” yelled out Christian Vazquez. Ramirez also wants to add 100 (as in RBIs) to the totals as well. Ramirez has to stay healthy and productive enough to get 497 plate appearances for his 2019 option to vest at $22 million. Piece of cake, right? The feeling is if Ramirez hits the ball like he did Monday night, John Henry and Tom Werner, who were in attendance, would have no problem paying out the $22 million. Even Ramirez said in spring training, “If I hit, I play.” He’s got that right. Ramirez hit a vicious shot to left-center with a man aboard in the fifth inning. Whether it was here at Marlins Park or in the old Joe Robbie Stadium where he played for many years, it was always hard to hit homers in Miami. He would become frustrated that balls got knocked down or the ballparks were so big that long fly balls or line drives would stay in the park or get caught. The people who are here all the time say when the roof is open, the ballpark plays even bigger. So when you hit a home run here, you’ve really hit a home run. “I was very frustrated here for a long time,” Ramirez said. “Hit a lot of balls on the money that were caught. I came back here over the years with the Dodgers and the same thing, so this one felt good.” Ramirez lives in Miami and he spent his best years as a big leaguer here. He won the NL Rookie of the Year in 2006 and won a batting title in 2009 (.342). He hit .300 or better four times for the Marlins and made three All-Star teams. This is where he grew up after the Red Sox traded him as the major chip in the Josh Beckett/Mike Lowell deal before the 2006 season. Ramirez, then a shortstop, certainly made the Red Sox sweat their decision to deal him because back then he was a player who could steal bases (he stole 51 in both 2006 and 2007), hit for power, and for average. He became exactly what Ben Cherington, then the Red Sox farm director, thought he would become. Batting third Monday night, he had a couple of frustrating at-bats with a ground out to shortstop in the first and a pop to second base in the fourth. He just got under the pop-up. Just missed it. But once the fifth came around, Marlins starter Trevor Richards wasn’t able to fool him again. Ramirez made a couple of nice plays at first base, too. It was a breakthrough night for the Sox offense. Oh, not that double-digit type game that featured a big inning, but at least it was seven runs — which was three fewer than the previous four games combined. Andrew Benintendi ended his slump at 0 for 13 with a swinging bunt toward first base. Eduardo Nunez knocked in a run with a double in the fourth and Christian Vazquez doubled in a pair of runs with hard liner down the third-base line. Mookie Betts homered. In what seemed like a home game with a partisan Red Sox crowd chanting “Let’s go Red Sox!” the Sox took advantage of the inexperienced Marlins pitching and team. Sox lefty Brian Johnson pitched six very good innings, allowing one run, while the offense finally gave its starting pitcher some run support. The Red Sox even rested J.D. Martinez after a couple of games playing left field on the hard Tropicana Field turf. Yet, it was the right thing to do. Manager Alex Cora is going to do that now and then. Ramirez was given the day off Sunday in Tampa. “It’s just exciting right now with the way we’re playing,” Ramirez said. Ramirez pointed to the upper deck where he said he had three suites devoted to family members. He saw David Ortiz and met with him. He was appreciative of the support Red Sox fans gave him among the 11,000 and change that attended the game. It was a nice night overall for Ramirez, who has had his two sons in the Red Sox clubhouse on this road trip. He felt he did something good for a little kid. He felt good about that. He felt good about himself and the team is feeling better about Ramirez being a productive member of the 2018 team. Nick Cafardo can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Harper powers Nationals By Charles Odum ASSOCIATED PRESS Nationals 8 AT L A N TA — B r y c e Harper hit a three-run Braves 1 homer and the quick- ERIC CHRISTIAN SMITH/ASSOCIATED PRESS GOLD STAR — AL MVP Jose Altuve high-fives teammates before the world champion Astros beat the Orioles, 6-1, in Houston’s home opener. scoring Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves, 8-1, on Monday night for the first 4-0 start to a season in their Washington history. Harper’s second-inning shot off Sean Newcomb (0-1) to center field gave the Nationals a 5-0 lead. He also drew four walks and scored three runs. For the fourth straight game as the road team, the Nationals scored in the first inning to give their starting pitcher a lead before his first pitch. This time, the beneficiary was Tanner Roark (1-0), who allowed one run in seven innings. Roark gave up four hits with one walk and six strikeouts. Howie Kendrick’s double to right field drove in Harper, who walked, in Washington’s two-run first inning. Newcomb’s troubles continued in the second. After Newcomb gave up singles to Pedro Severino and Anthony Rendon, Harper walked to the plate as stadium organist Matthew Kaminski played the somber ‘‘Imperial March.’’ Braves fans chimed in with boos. Harper crushed a first-pitch fastball. The homer landed in the decorative rocks behind the 400-foot marker on the center-field wall. He has three homers — including two in Sunday’s 6-5 win at Cincinnati — and seven RBIs. Newcomb allowed six runs, five earned, on five hits and four walks in 4‚ innings. Braves righthander Anibal Sanchez, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Gwinnett before the game, pitched three scoreless innings in relief to strengthen his bid for a spot in the rotation. Freddie Freeman’s single drove in Ender Inciarte, who singled and stole second, in the fourth. Nationals pinch-hitter Brian Goodwin had a two-run single off Jose Ramirez in the ninth.

D4 Sports T h e B o s t o n G l o b e T U E S D A Y, A P R I L 3 , 2 0 1 8 Marchand fined for crosscheck By Kevin Paul Dupont and Fluto Shinzawa GLOBE STAFF FILE/MATTHEW J. LEE/GLOBE STAFF Even multiple first-round draft picks might not be enough trade compensation for Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. Gronk solution? Rework deal Ben Volin ON FOOTBALL A four-pack of Patriots items to get you through the pre-draft doldrums: 1. Positive signs Rob Gronkowski will be back, and there is no need to trade him. Gronk dominated the news cycle over the weekend. There was a report from ESPN that Gronk is “pretty certain” to return to the Patriots this season as long as Tom Brady is still with the team, and also some speculation locally and nationally that Bill Belichick might trade Gronkowski now that the tight end is grumbling about the program and his contract. The ESPN report cited sources close to Gronkowski and Belichick, stating that while both sides are frustrated — Gronk with Belichick’s demanding style, Belichick wondering if Gronk is still committed to the team — the relationship is not irreconcilable, and Gronk is expected to play football again this fall. None of this should be too surprising for anyone who has followed the situation closely. Gronk has been grumbling about his contract since before last season, and he clearly has been clashing with Belichick over his training regimen and use of Alex Guerrero. One tweet that should’ve gotten more scrutiny was when Gronkowski was named firstteam All-Pro and tweeted, “Hard work and working Smarter is paying off!!!!” The word “smarter” seems to be a direct reference to his use of Guerrero, and the word was noticeably capitalized. But while Gronk and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, have declined to discuss the tight end’s future publicly since Gronkowski mentioned retirement at the Super Bowl, momentum for a return is certainly building. The most positive buzz came from Robert Kraft, who spoke about Gronk last week at the NFL owners meetings in Orlando. Kraft noted that he saw Gronkowski at Gillette Stadium a few weeks ago “after hours.” That sure doesn’t sound like a guy who is walking away. Kraft also took joy in the video from a Miami nightclub of Gronkowski jumping on Shaquille O’Neal’s shoulders and taking a piggy-back ride. “So that speaks well about his potential athletic moves this coming year,” Kraft said. Gronk, set to make between $8 million and $9 million this year, undoubtedly feels underpaid when he sees lesser players cashing in big in free agency. But there aren’t many jobs out there that will pay you $9 million a year, either. And as long as he’s playing for the Patriots and catching passes from Brady, he’ll remain a superstar. Let’s remember that the offseason program hasn’t even begun yet (it starts April 16). And Gronkowski gets a $250,000 bonus for participating in 90 percent of the Patriots’ workouts this spring. If Gronk doesn’t show up for OTAs, then we have a story. But I wouldn’t be shocked if he appears on Day 1. Even if he’s not pleased with the Patriots, why turn down free money? Now to the other aspect — whether Belichick has tired of Gronk’s attitude and contract gripes. Belichick shipped Richard Seymour, Logan Mankins, Wes Welker, and Vince Wilfork out of town, so why can’t he do it to Gronk? Belichick absolutely could, but it would be foolish. The aforementioned players were all good to very good, but Gronkowski is a first-ballot Gold Jacket. He’s also still on the positive side of 30 (29 this upcoming season), and still one of the five most dangerous weapons in the NFL. Realistically, no trade compensation is going to be worth it, even multiple first-round picks. The best solution still seems to be reworking Gronk’s contract. The Patriots can easily pay Gronk more in 2018 with a nice signing bonus, while also lowering his salary-cap number from $10.9 million. The player is happy, and the team creates more cap space. Winwin. That is, unless the situation behind the scenes is so poisonous that Belichick has no choice but to ship Gronk out of town. But that doesn’t seem at all likely. 2. Malcolm Butler and his agent get the last laugh. Butler’s short documentary with Sports Illustrated was an excellent look behind the scenes at Butler’s free agency process — how he handled the fallout from the Super Bowl benching, the nerves he felt throughout free agency, and how he came to sign a fiveyear, $61.25 million contract. In the film we learn that nine teams called Butler’s agent, Derek Simpson, to express interest. The Titans and Bears were the most interested, while the Saints, Texans, and, interestingly, the Lions, all called. Butler’s brother also said he wanted Butler to sign with the Texans or Lions. Butler’s relationship with Matt Patricia must not have been affected by the Super Bowl benching, which puts into question how much input Patricia had in that decision. We learn of a few initial offers. The Texans were willing to only go for one year, but no money was disclosed. The Bears initially offered three years and $30 million, which was the same contract Logan Ryan got from the Titans last year. The Titans started out at five years and $55 million. The film gave the impression that the Titans were negotiating against themselves, but Larry Lundy, Butler’s adviser, relayed to us that that was not the case, and that there were offers from teams that didn’t make it into the documentary. Finally, two thoughts about Butler’s relationship with Simpson struck me while watching this documentary: First, it is noteworthy that Butler stuck with Simpson throughout the process. The agent game is ruthless, and the sharks have been swimming around Butler for years, tempting him to drop his inexperienced agent and sign with them. But Butler stayed loyal to the agent who helped get him into the NFL. Second, good for Simpson for negotiating a life-changing deal for Butler. Simpson was the target of a lot of mudslinging last year when Butler was unable to get a suitable longterm contract from the Patriots. The slinging seemed to have been started by Belichick confidant Michael Lombardi, who put the onus on Butler in an article for The Ringer. “The Patriots kept trying to sign Malcolm Butler to a longterm extension and kept coming up empty— the underpaid hero of Super Bowl XLIX is looking for the moon and then some,” he wrote. That started weeks of chatter around Boston (not from us) that Butler’s inexperienced agent was messing it up. Well, with Butler signing for $25 million guaranteed over the next two years, despite an inconsistent season and the Super Bowl benching, Simpson gets the last laugh. 3. Expect to see Josh Mc Daniels’s name pop up next year for head coaching jobs. In a March 16 Patriots chat on Reddit, I mentioned that even though McDaniels returned to the Patriots and is the presumed heir apparent, there was a rumor that McDaniels will put his name out for other head coaching jobs next year. Then he did an exclusive interview with the Globe’s Jim McBride last week, and I’m more convinced than ever. McDaniels’s quotes read like an open letter to the other 31 teams. R McDaniels made it clear that he “absolutely” wants to be a head coach again. If McDaniels already has the Patriots job lined up, why bother mentioning that? “And I apologize to anyone who was affected in any way,” McDaniels said. “Indianapolis did a tremendous job. They have a tremendous organization and I was lucky to be considered and I just think once I found out [what my future in New England was], I made the right decision for me and my family at this time.’’ Again, if he’s just going to coach the Patriots, why the need for a full explanation? R McDaniels also made it clear that “my family was ready to go to Indianapolis,” and that he’s not wedded to New England. “This isn’t a thing where I’m telling you, ‘I couldn’t move and all that,’ ” he said. “And at some point, if I have to move or if we end up moving, they understand that’s part of the situation and they were ready to do that.’’ So don’t be surprised if McDaniels enters the head coaching fray next January. 4. March 31 was an expen sive day for the Patriots. This past Saturday was a day unofficially known as “Signing Bonus Day.” When the Patriots agree to give a player a signing bonus, the player usually doesn’t get all of the money up front. Instead, the Patriots split the bonus into three payments, due on March 31, October 31, and March 31 of the following year. It has nothing to do with the salary cap, and everything to do about protecting the Patriots from another Aaron Hernandez type of situation. The Patriots also get to collect the interest generated by the deferred payments. But the Patriots had some big checks going out this past Saturday — a total of $17.25 million in deferred signing bonuses from the 2017 offseason, including a $6 million payment for Stephon Gilmore and $3.25 million for Dont’a Hightower. Here is a full breakdown of the signing bonus payments: Gilmore: $6m (of $18m); Hightower: $3.25m (of $10m); Kyle Van Noy: $1.5m (of $3.5m); Julian Edelman: $1.5m (of $5m); Duron Harmon: $1.5m (of $5m); Lawrence Guy: $1m (of $4m); James White: $1m (of $4m); Alan Branch: $600k (of $2m); David Andrews: $500k (of $1.6m); David Harris: $250k (of $1.25m); Kenny Britt: $150k (roster bonus); Total: $17.25 million The Patriots also agreed to $13.81 million in signing bonuses this past month, with a large portion of it paid March 31, but the breakdown of deferred payments isn’t known yet. . . . The Patriots hosted two free agents Monday, both of whom could potentially become depth pieces. Former Bills wide receiver Jordan Matthews and former Cardinals tight end Troy Niklas both visited the Patriots, according to an ESPN report. Both Matthews and Niklas were second-round selections in the 2014 draft. Matthews also has met with the Packers and Cardinals, who reportedly extended him an offer on Monday. He played in 10 games last season for the Bills, who acquired him from the Eagles in August, and caught 25 passes for 282 yards and one touchdown. Niklas is primarily a blocker, having caught 11 passes in 15 games (11 starts) in 2017 in Arizona. Nora Princiotti of the globe staff contributed. Ben Volin can be reached at email@example.com.

TAMPA — The oft-suspended Brad Marchand won’t have to sit out the Bruins’ game here Tuesday BRUINS night vs. the NOTEBOOK Lightning, but the irascible left winger will show up $5,000 lighter in the wallet, fined that amount Monday for his cross-check Sunday to the Flyers’ Andrew MacDonald. The NHL’s Department of Player Safety announced the fine at approximately 10 a.m. Monday, less than 24 hours after the Bruins lost to the Flyers, 4-3, in overtime in Philly. Marchand, the club’s top scorer with 84 points, was suspended for five games just prior to his NHL All-Star Game appearance for drilling New Jersey forward Marcus Johan sson in the head with a flying elbow Jan. 23. Marchand now has ceded $375,475.60 in pay this season. Since returning Feb. 7, Marchand has been on a tear, delivering a line of 13-21—34 in 26 games. With Marchand back at his left wing spot Tuesday on the No. 1 line with Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak, the Bruins will have a chance to all but secure the No. 1 spot in the Eastern Conference. Lightning thumbnails R When, where: Tuesday, 7:30 p.m. at Amalie Arena, Tampa. R TV, radio: NESN Plus, NBCSN, WBZFM (98.5). R Goals: Nikita Kucherov 38, Brayden Point 30, Steven Stamkos 27. R Assists: Kucherov 59, Stamkos 59, Victor Hedman 45. R Goaltending: Andrei Vasilevskiy (42173, 2.62 GAA), Louis Domingue (730, 2.88). R Head to head: This is the fourth and final meeting this season. The Bruins won the first three, includ ing 42 last Thursday at TD Gar den. R Miscellany: The Bruins lead the Eastern Conference with 110 points and have four games left. Tampa Bay is second in the East with 108 points and has three games remaining . . . Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is 300 against the Lightning this season, posting a 1.33 goalsagainst average and .944 save percentage. He notched a 23save shutout in Tampa on March 17. The Bruins enjoyed a day off here Monday, and provided no update on the status of their many injured charges, including Brandon Carlo. The sophomore defenseman exited Saturday’s matinee against Florida on a stretcher, his left leg buckling in an awkward tumble along the boards. Coach Bruce Cassidy only would say Sunday that swelling in the leg prevented a final diagnosis. Cassidy also said over the weekend that it’s possible defenseman Charlie McAvoy, felled by a wrenched knee March 3 vs. Montreal, might return to the lineup Tuesday. round-robin rookie camp in Buffalo in September, a tournament that included Sabres and Devils prospects. Studnicka’s father, Todd, played four years at forward for the Maine Black Bears, and for two of those years was a teammate of Bob Beers, the ex-Bruins blue liner who is now the part of the 98.5 Sports Hub radio crew for Bruins broadcasts. Keyser, who grew up in Florida, went undrafted. But he participated in Boston’s rookie camp in September, earned himself an entry-level contract, and was the Generals’ No. 1 goaltender this season with a 28-13-0 record and .904 save percentage. He went 1-4-0 with an .882 save percentage in the postseason. Providence has seven games remaining in the regular season and its next home game is Friday at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center. Studnicka and Keyser, because they are only 19, would not be eligible to play in the AHL next season. They would be eligible to make the varsity roster, but otherwise would be obligated to return to Oshawa. Help to Providence Cave recalled The Bruins will have their reserve corps bolstered this week when top junior prospects Jack Studnicka (center) and Kyle Keyser (goalie) begin their pro careers with AHL Providence. Studnicka and Keyser, both of whom signed entry-level contracts with the Bruins last fall, wrapped up their junior season with OHL Oshawa over the weekend when the Generals — once home to Bobby Orr — were eliminated by Niagara in the opening around of the playoffs. Studnicka, the Generals’ captain, led the club in scoring and finished with career highs in goals (22), assists (50), and points (72). The 6-foot-1-inch, 175-pound pivot was Boston’s second pick, No. 53 overall, in last June’s amateur entry draft. Smart and poised with the puck, similar in style to Bergeron, the 19-year-old Studnicka is a righthanded shot and projects as a No. 1 or No. 2 center who could meld with some of the top-end rookies the Bruins have added up front this year, particularly Jake DeBrusk and Ryan Do nato. Studnicka was among Boston’s top performers in the The Bruins recalled center Colby Cave from Providence late Monday afternoon, a move that could indicate versatile forward Riley Nash will be out of Tuesday’s lineup for a second straight game after sustaining a nasty gash when a puck clipped him around the ear Saturday, necessitating a 40-stich repair. Cave, a fourthyear pro, filled in for one game with the varsity this season — his NHL debut — and has compiled a line of 11-22—33 this season with the WannaB’s . . . Bergeron was not made available to the media follow Sunday’s OT loss. That is not highly unusual in itself, but Bergeron typically talks after games. The veteran pivot has played in only five games since return after cracking a bone in his right foot Feb. 24 in Toronto. It’s also possible that Cave was recalled if Bergeron needs extra time on the sideline prior to the start of the playoffs.

B o s t o n G l o b e Sports Add Rozier (ankle) to backcourt injury woes By Adam Himmelsbach Bucks thumbnails GLOBE STAFF The Celtics’ backcourt was so depleted in the win over the Raptors on Saturday that forwards Jayson Tatum and Al Horford both had opportunities to play point CELTICS guard. Now there is a chance NOTEBOOK Boston could be even more undermanned when it faces the Bucks on Tuesday night. Point guard Terry Rozier missed practice Monday because of a sprained ankle he suffered when he took a hard fall against Toronto, and he is questionable for Tuesday’s game. Backup point guard Shane Larkin, who missed Saturday’s game because of an illness, was discharged from a hospital on Sunday night, but did not join the team on its flight to Milwaukee Monday. There is a chance he could be cleared to travel on Tuesday. And, of course, guards Kyrie Irving (knee) and Mar cus Smart (thumb) remain sidelined. Rozier insisted that he plans to play against Milwaukee. “I just know that I’m not a guy who wants to sit out if I don’t have a legitimate reason,” he said. “I’m fine. I can play. My ankle is not super bad. The way I hurt it in Golden State is way worse than this one, so I feel good about it. The medical staff knows what they’re doing, so just getting it together and taking my time with it.” But with just over one week remaining in the regular season, and Rozier’s health for the playoffs of paramount importance, coach Brad Stevens also made it clear that the Celtics would err on the side of caution. “Obviously we’re not going to play him if it’s hurting him, because he’s going to be incredibly important as we move forward,” Stevens said. “You saw the other night, he played 38 minutes. Obviously without Shane, too, he would have more burden.” Rozier’s injury occurred when he was fell on a fast break in the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game. He said he initially thought he had injured his knee, and that after the game his Achilles’ tendon was sore. “By the time I got home, all the pain transferred to my ankle and it ended up being my ankle,” he said. “I watched the play like 10 times yesterday. Like I said, I’m fine. I iced it a lot yesterday. I feel good. I feel way better today than yesterday.” If Larkin and Rozier are both out, Stevens would have no choice but to turn to more unorthodox lineups. “We’ve got a lot of good players,” Rozier said. “Al brings the ball down a lot. I was just talking to him and he said hopefully I wasn’t injured, because he said he gets tired of bringing the ball down all the time. We’ll find our ways.” Jaylen Brown said he has minimal experience as a primary ballhandler. “I played point guard at Cal for a little bit,” Brown said. “When I grew up, I was a point guard, until I got tall. So I’m just trying to stay with those ball skills. In the NBA, not so much. Not at all, actually.” Running commentary Gordon Hayward has been quite open in chronicling his recovery from a broken left ankle, and on Monday he offered the latest video evidence. The forward posted a Players Tribune video to his Twitter account showing him completing a light jog on the Celtics’ practice court. It is significant because previously he was only able to run with the aid of an antigravity treadmill. “It’s pretty slow running,” Stevens quipped. “I was up there watching it the other morning when they did that. The next step of his progression is once every three days he gets on the court and does that. So as you can see it was about 20 percent speed, nothing lateral, no jumping. So a long, long way away [from returning].” Hayward suffered the injury just minutes into Boston’s season-opening loss to the Cava- R When, where: Tuesday, 8 p.m., at BMO Harris Bradley Center, Milwaukee.

He has consistently said that he hopes to be back this season, but this video in no way shows that a return is near. Still, his progression has been steady and noticeable. “I think every day where he can accomplish something new is a big deal,” Stevens said. “He’s in here six days a week. He gets one off day a week where he gets to rest it and still gets treatment on it and everything else. But everything else, he gets those small accomplishments, and those are a big deal when you’re rehabbing.” Last week, Hayward posted a video on Instagram in which he drilled a 3-pointer while lying on his back. “If he can figure out a way to defend on his back, he can really shoot it,” Stevens said, smiling.

All hockey players engage in danger daily given the speed, physicality, and anger of their profession. But the bosses can only plan with the latest information on hand, which is that Charlie McAvoy could be ready to play on Tuesday while Carlo cannot. It leaves coach Bruce Cassidy and his colleagues with one question on defense to be addressed before the playoffs: who will play on Krug’s right side? Before his left leg crumbled against the Panthers Saturday, Carlo had been raising his hand high for that designation. The right-shot defender has steered through more peaks and valleys as a sophomore than he did as a freshman, when he enjoyed the stability of Zdeno Chara on his left flank. But of late, Carlo had incorporated more snarl into his game. Meanness, like the kind Kevan Miller and Adam Mc- D5 Quaid have mastered, was the quality the coaching staff most wanted Carlo to express. If the coaches want nastiness, a right shot, and familiarity to complement Krug ’s puck-rushing touch, McQuaid is their man. Since 2013-14, Krug’s first full NHL season, the point-producing defenseman has logged 2,134 five-on-five minutes with McQuaid at his side, according to Corsica Hockey. No other Black-and-Gold duo has played together more since 2012-13. Chara and ex-Bruin Dougie Hamilton are second within this segment with 1,348 five-on-five minutes together. McQuaid has been Krug’s security blanket, giving his partner comfort to go on the attack. “ You’ve got to develop some chemistry with whoever it is that you’re playing with,” Krug said of the four remaining regular-season games. “For a while now, we’ve kind of been bouncing in and out of D pairings. Whoever you’re on the ice with, you try and play the same way. There’s obviously tendencies that certain players have, strengths and weaknesses. At the end of the day, you’ve got to go out and play to your own strengths and weaknesses. Hopefully you guys can develop some chemistry.” The question Cassidy and his colleagues have to answer, however, is whether Nick Holden would be a better option than McQuaid. Holden’s legs are livelier. The ex-Ranger has more offense in his game. He is not afraid to go up the ice. On Saturday, Holden knew to sprint to the far post when David Krejci cycled up the right-side wall. McQuaid does not often give himself the green light in such situations. T he only issue that keeps a Krug-Holden pair from being a slam dunk is that they are both left shots. Holden is comfortable manning the right side. He logged most of his shifts on his weak side with the Rangers and Avalanche. Holden can pivot, angle his blade, and look up the ice well enough to get the puck going when he receives on the right side in the defensive zone. But Cassidy prefers left-right balance on his blue line. Cassidy, a former defenseman, believes defenders are best served being on their strong side in their own zone to execute clean, swift breakouts. One area where Holden has to b e m o s t m i n d f u l i s w h e n h e’s wheeling around his own net. When he emerges on his weak side, Holden is on his backhand and more at risk of being challenged for the puck. “When you’re playing the right side, coming around the net, and picking up the puck, you’ll be on your backhand,” Holden said. “So it’s just a little different angle making some passes in the D-zone. Also in the neutral zone, when you get a D-to-D pass, you’re twisting the other way. Positionally, there’s not a ton different. You’ll be skating in the same areas. It’s just sometimes the body and stick position are a little bit different.” Even with two left shots on the same pair, Krug and Holden would be the best fit together. But given the Bruins’ luck, Holden might be needed elsewhere by the playoffs. Augusta warms to this firefighter uMASTERS Continued from Page D1 teur Championship and earn the most coveted invite in golf, to savor every chance to root for the guy who arrived in Augusta with his fellow firefighting father by his side and a lesson for us all in his bag. “Oh yeah, it’s incredible,” Matt agreed while taking his unexpected turn in the Masters interview room Monday. “But like you said, I don’t see it that way. Because I’ve obviously lived it. But, no, it’s a great story, and I understand why there’s so much attention.” “I am surprised by how much attention,” Vic said, “but people love firefighters.” How could we not? Hero may be an overused word, particularly when it enters the sports lexicon waged on fields of play rather than those of true battle. But here, inside a man willing to lay his own life on the line every day to protect the imperiled in his struggling, hardscrabble hometown, here, inside a man willing to work multiple 24-hour shifts at one of the busiest ladder companies in the nation to help bust walls and break down ceilings to beat back fire, here, inside a man who has done that and more so many times across the past four years on the job, there is a hero. And here, inside a man who did it all while continuing to find time for the game he has loved since watching a certain red-shirted kid named Tiger shake the game’s foundation in 1997, here, inside a man who ignored every conventional wisdom about blue-collar kids living in New England winters not being destined for golf greatness, here, inside a man who walked away from the professional grind of the mini tour and took the firefighter test instead, but who couldn’t walk away from the game, there is an inspiration. From father to son. Like father, like son. Hero and inspiration. What a combination. “My dad actually just retired in November, and he worked 32 years,” Matt said. “He never missed any hockey game I had so I figured it was a good schedule for me to play competitive golf. Being around the guys growing up, I always enjoyed going to the station and spending time with them. And I knew most of them before I got on, and it’s such a great group of guys. We have such a good time. “But I don’t think it affects golf in any way. I put a lot of work into preparing for tournaments, and just because I fought a fire doesn’t mean golf ’s any easier. It’s different though, too, where in a fire you’re there with 30 other guys and sometimes you rely on them, they rely on you. On the golf course, you’re by yourself. It’s two separate situations.” They are all colliding here. Back home at Thorny Lea Golf Club, where Parziale is an honorable heir to the legacy of Hall of Fame member Herbert Warren Wind, famed golf writer who coined the term “Amen Corner,” club manager Chris Barron is opening the doors for the city’s service men and women to watch Parziale compete. “The actual tournament days, Thursday through Sunday, the city council, the Mayor’s office, the Brockton Police, and Brockton Fire have an open invitation to come to Thorny Lea for drinks, food, and to watch the coverage,” Barron said. “For Matt’s involvement with the city, his father’s 30-plus years, it’s just a natural fit. The club is very supportive of him, and this is such a Brockton story as well. Brockton has its share of challenges, but this a great story.” One that any town, blue collar or blue blood, struggling or thriving, would be proud of. For Brockton Fire Station No. 1 over on Pleasant Street, for Team 4 that counts Matt as a member (though he’s on leave while golf takes over), there is no other way to feel. “It’s a tough job because we’re so busy — the station Matt works at, the ladder company, was the seventh busiest in the country last year, and the rescue there, they were the busiest in the US last year,” Brockton Fire Chief Michael Williams said of his 194-member department. “It’s a tough job. There’s not a lot of sitting around in Brockton. “I’ve known Matt since he was a kid. His dad and I have been friends since we started in the department. They’re great people. This is very exciting and it’s great for the city.” The true golf test will come Thursday, when the first shot off the first tee counts for real. But whatever is in store for this Brockton kid, the one who had to push his August wedding date back two weeks to account for another tournament, being here is a story worth telling.

Purrier has a dairy-tale ending uPURRIER Continued from Page D1 Purrier grew up milking 30 dairy cows each morning at 5:30, before showering and heading to school. Her other farm chores included tossing 40pound bales of hay and raising two pigs. She started running in eighth grade. After school, Purrier would run the mile and a half from tiny Richford High School, touch the bottom of Canada, and then run back. She’d run through picturesque Montgomery, the coveredbridge capital of Vermont, and sometimes attack the steep 6-mile mountain road up to Jay Peak. Through hard work, talent, and toughness, she became a 10-time AllAmerican at UNH, competing in the mile, 3,000-meter steeplechase (outdoors), and cross-country. “I think I’m different in the running community,’’ she said. “I’m just myself and feel like I have strong roots here and I’ve always felt like an outsider.” In high school, the boys teased her about running, until she kicked their butts in the local 10K Milk Run. The graduating class was only 40 kids, and she never rubbed their faces in it. “No, ’cause I’m pretty humble,” she said with a smile. At away races, Purrier’s father, Charlie, noted that “nobody knew us and nobody knew her and she’d be way out in front and [other parents] would say she can’ t keep that up, her form is all wrong, and we’re saying nothing. If she’d run by we’d cheer and then it would get real quiet.” Elinor says farming has taught her to be resilient. “It’s taught me life isn’t a piece of cake, it’s going to throw a thousand challenges at you at once.’’ These are tough times for the dairy industry. Dairy prices have dipped to the levels of 35 years ago. One dairy coop recently mailed out a forecast of declining 2018 milk prices accompanied by a list of suicide prevention hotlines. “The fate of dairy farming is uncer- tain,” says Charlie Purrier. His daughter will forever be a dairy advocate. Don’t tell her almond milk is better. “I can get pretty heated about this,” she said. “The nutrients in milk are easier for the human to digest because it’s not a plant.’’ Don’ t think of her as a country bumpkin, either. She was named the overall female Scholar Athlete for the America East Conference for the 201617 school year. Still, coming from a farm can be “a touchy subject. There’s a lot of people that don’t get it, they think, ‘Oh, you’re a hillbilly.’ ’’ Purrier has embraced her community, her family, and her school, according to UNH women’s track coach Robert Hoppler. “One of the things I’m most proud of is watching her develop as an athlete and an individual,” he said. She’s also tough. Don’t try to box out the 5-foot-3-inch dynamo on the track. “If there was women’s professional football, she wouldn’t be running at all, she’d be playing in the NFL for women,” said Hoppler. “She’s a physical kid, very, very, strong. She’d be able to run down the field all day long.” But winning a national championship had eluded her. She finished 15th and third, respectively, her first two seasons in the indoor mile, and last year, she was leading down the stretch but got outkicked at the line. The stinging loss only motivated her more. In February, she recorded the second-fastest time for a women’s indoor mile in NCAA history (4 minutes 26.55 seconds) at the Boston University David Hemery Valentine Invitational. At the national championships last month in College Station, Texas, she made sure she looked like a champion. Purrier wore her favorite pearl earrings and put on makeup before the race. “Look good, feel good, run good,” was a mantra taught to her by Anne Twombly, a former UNH runner. Purrier came out strong and at one point glanced at the videoboard and saw she had established a sizable lead. But with 40 meters left, Dani Jones of the University of Colorado, known for her strong kick, quickly closed the distance and even took a one-step lead. “I didn’t know she was coming,” Purrier said. “Literally, this is the same exact thing that happened last year.” But Purrier and Hoppler had practiced for this very scenario. She thought of accelerating to the finish, and relaxing to keep the muscles from cramping. In the last 10 seconds, Jones and Purrier dashed to the wire. “You just literally give every ounce that you have,” she said. “You just have to find a way to make your legs move a little bit faster. I thought, I really, really want it this time.” At the finish, Purrier leaned forward and finished in 4:31.76, just 0.06 ahead of Jones. It was the closest race in the women’s mile since 1991. “That was just instinct, “ said Purrier of the lean-in. “I was almost jumping.” She raised her arms but didn’t immediately celebrate. “I didn’t want to take the risk of celebrating early, so I waited a couple of seconds and then Dani came and patted my back. Then I saw the scoreboard,” she said. Recently Purrier returned home for spring break and spent time with the family, the cows, and Nelson, her St. Bernard. “It still hasn’t sunk in,” she said. The future is bright. Purrier dreams of turning pro or possibly competing in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo. In Montgomery, she is a local celebrity. When she stopped in to the Montgomery Town School district annual meeting to see her father, who was chairing the meeting, someone yelled out, “Elle is here.” Everyone started clapping and cheering. Here on the top of Vermont, she is on top of the world. Stan Grossfeld can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I’ve been with my boyfriend for more than four years. Our relationship is strong — we’ve lived in different cities, traveled, and currently live together. Overall he is a great partner. We have quite the age difference of 13 years — he’s 42 (I’m younger). We’ve discussed getting married and spending our lives together, yet the one hangup we have is deciding whether or not we want to have kids. He is 100 percent sure he doesn’t want kids and I’m about 80 percent sure that I don’t want children. We’ve discussed this extensively and I’m just not sure I can commit without the option of changing my mind. What if I wake up at 35 and desperately want a child? Do I leave a sure thing — my boyfriend — for something I’m not sure I want? CHILD OR NOT A. I wish there was a simple answer to this question — one that involves my being able to know what you’ll want in the future. Sadly, there isn’t. All I know is that this issue is plaguing you, despite the 80-20 math. That says plenty. Something to consider: Is it possible that your question is about more than children? It sounds like it might be. At 29, you’re not sure what you want next, but your boyfriend already has answers. Perhaps you want a partner who’s more up in the air about everything. It might be nice to be with someone who’s like, “Let’s figure it out together.” Most of the time I tell people that if they really love their lives, they shouldn’t worry too much about things they might want in the future. But in your case, this is really bothering you, and you say you’re not sure you can commit. That means this can’t be ignored. MEREDITH FRANK FRANKLIN II/AP Actress Cynthia Nixon is trying to unseat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Nixon takes campaign to ‘Wendy Williams Show’ Many are intensely interested in Cynthia Nixon’s campaign for governor of New York. How else to get an update on the vibe among the “Sex and the City” ladies? Kristin Davis was first in line with her support, tweeting that Nixon is “one of the most intelligent and caring people” in her life. Sarah Jessica Parker finally fell in line, posting her support on Instagram: “My sister on and off screen, you have my love, support and vote.” And Kim Cattrall, who recently had a public tiff with Parker, issued a wan, vague tweet: “I support & respect any former colleague’s right to make their own career choices.” For those who wonder about the far less im- Tuesday April 3, 2018 7:00pm 2 WGBH Greater PBS Boston 4 WBZ Wheel CBS NEW 5 WCVB News ABC (CC) 6 WLNE ABC Daily 7 WHDH News (CC) HD NBC Boston 7:30pm 8:00pm Movies 8:30pm Steves 9:00pm 9:30pm Chronicle Roseanne Middle HD NEW Blackish NEW In.

NEW NBC10 at Access 7:00pm TV-G READERS RESPOND: portant matter of Nixon’s politics, the actress, who is trying to unseat two-term Democrat Andrew Cuomo, has granted her first TV sit-down interview to Wendy Williams. Nixon will appear on “The Wendy Williams Show” on Wednesday to discuss her campaign. Why Wendy Williams? The daytime talk show is popular in New York, and Nixon has appeared on it before, in 2012. “We win by getting her in front of voters, because we actually want them to see the real Cynthia,” campaign spokesperson Rebecca Katz told Variety. “And that’s what we get with Wendy. Her viewers are a large and crucial part of the electorate, and her show reaches all corners of the state.” Masters Highlts Live/Masters: A look at the tournament.

SETTINGTHEWORLDONFIRE I know I’ve shared this before, but my exwife said she never wanted kids. I assumed all my life that I’d someday have kids, but it was never a burning need. So we didn’t have any. Fast forward 18 years, to the end of the marriage, and she said, “I wanted kids, I just didn’t want them with you.” Yeah, that left a mark. Still there. But it’s not something that runs my life either. SLIM-DOES-BOSTON Sorry this happened to you, Slim. FREEADVICEFORYOU If she stayed with you 18 years, she really didn’t want kids. She was just saying that to hurt you. -ROADRUNNERPeople do change their minds sometimes, letter writer. At 44, I was sure I didn’t want any more kids. At 48, I had another and I couldn’t be happier. Being “up there in age” has made me appreciate being a father even more. THATGUYINRI If you stick with this guy then DO NOT begrudge him for it later. Or act passive-aggressively when you get invited to eight baby showers in one year when you’re in your early 30s. It’ll sting. TABLEFORONE Baby fever can be all encompassing if it hits you.

With Lior Ashkenazi as a well-fed father who learns his soldier son may be dead and Yonathan Shiray as the son who might not be dead after all. Written and directed by Samuel Maoz (“Lebanon”). In Hebrew, with subtitles. (108 min., R) (Ty Burr) YYY Isle of Dogs A hand-crafted B o s t o n G l o b e stop-motion fable about exiled dogs on a Japanese island. So it’s a Wes Anderson movie. His most political too, and a film visually in love with Japanese culture. A qualified delight, with voicework by Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Jeff Goldblum, Scarlett Johansson, Bill Murray, and many others. (98 min., PG-13) (Ty Burr) YY½ Ready Player One Ernest Cline’s popular novel — about the fight to save the virtual-reality OASIS in a future America — has been brought to the screen by Steven Spielberg with a dullish hero (Tye Sheridan), an underused Willy Wonka figure (the great Mark Rylance), much digitized action, and a Trivia Night approach to ’80s nostalgia. How do you do, fellow kids?

A work of brutal screwball comedy, it features fine performances by Steve Buscemi (as Nikita Khrushchev), Jeffrey Tambor (Malenkov), and more. (106 min., R) (Ty Burr) D9 YYY½ Love, Simon Fans of “Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda” — the beloved 2015 young adult novel by Becky Albertalli — can celebrate. “Love, Simon” is great. It’s not exactly like the novel, but it captures the best parts. Part of the success of the film can be credited to Nick Robinson, who is perfect as Simon, a well-liked high school senior who’s gay and doesn’t know how — or when — to share. (96 min., PG-13) (Meredith Goldstein) YYY Red Sparrow It seems that Jennifer Lawrence and director Francis Lawrence were just getting warmed up with the boundaries they tested in the “Hunger Games” franchise. The pair reunite for a story about a Russian spy that’s heavy on themes of sexual degradation and sadistic violence. This is arrestingly dark fare that takes risks across the board. Joel Edgerton costars. (139 min., R) (Tom Russo) YYY Unsane A beguilingly nasty exercise in paranoia, shot on an iPhone by director Steven Soderbergh. Claire Foy (TV’s “The Crown”) plays a damaged young woman held at a mental institution against her will. The movie messes with your head and vanishes, leaving a lingering aftertaste of unreliable narrative.

You are more than willing to make an effort toward a key person in your life. You and this person also might need to reach out to a mutual friend. Those around you will be positively affected because of the hard work you put in. Tonight: Be sensitive to a loved one's feelings. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Others appear to be knocking on your door. Make it OK to ignore outside activity for a little while. You want to have less of a hectic pace. Not everyone can sustain your high level of energy, which is a gift that allows you to accomplish more than most people. Tonight: Out late. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Recognize your limitations.

Louie says that what falls in the bathroom will land in the toilet, and the light bulb that’s hardest to replace will burn out most often. Louie was declarer at today’s four hearts. As usual, something went wrong, and as usual, Louie failed to cope. He won the first spade with the ace and took the ace of trumps, sighing when East discarded. Louie took the king of trumps and next led a club to dummy’s king. He lost three clubs and a trump. “If I were a mechanic,” Louie said, “my nose would start to itch just when my hands were covered with grease.” After Louie takes the top trumps, he should cash the A-K of diamonds, ruff a diamond, lead a spade to the king and return dummy’s last diamond. When East follows, Louie discards a club: a loser on a loser. East must concede a ruff-sluff or give dummy the king of clubs. Even if West ruffs the fourth diamond to lead a club, Louie loses only three tricks. 0.8" 0.4" BY JACQUELINE BIGAR Today is Tuesday, April 3, the 93rd day of 2018. There are 272 days left in the year. Birthdays: Actress-singer Doris Day is 96. Conservationist Jane Goodall is 84. Songwriter Jeff Barry is 80. Actress Marsha Mason is 76. Singer Wayne Newton is 76.

Folk-rock singer/ songwriter Richard Thompson 1.0" 0.55 HOROSCOPE HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Tuesday, April 3, 2018: This year you opt to get involved in a key cause. There will be no sitting back and letting others act on your ideas. You will personally guide your project and ideas to completion. If you become frustrated, you easily could lose your temper. Try to tame your emotions. If you are single, your appeal soars throughout your birthday year. If you know what kind of relationship you desire, you have the ability to create it. If you are attached, the two of you could be working toward a key goal together. Listen to each other's thoughts and ideas. SCORPIO helps ground you.

ANSWER: This is a matter of personal style. Some players would bid 2NT to show a balanced minimum opening bid. Others would raise to three clubs. I would accept either action. I would not accept a bid of two hearts, even if I were playing a style in which a “reverse” after a two-overone response did not promise extra strength. plain what you expect from someone, but don't forget to be receptive to his or her needs as well. You have to be more direct with a person you deal with on a daily basis. If you put in that extra effort, you will be rewarded. Tonight: Out till the wee hours. CANCER (June 21-July 22) A loved one seeks you out, as he or she has a lot to share. As a result, you might need to rearrange your schedule. Your willingness to put in 100 percent when dealing with emotional situations comes back in multiples. Recognize the need to stay open. Tonight: Be spontaneous. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Continue working from home, if possible. A low-key environment encourages more productivity as well as a greater sense of security. Events around your home seem fortunate at this time. Be more forthright about what is happening around you. Tonight: Stay close to home. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your ability to grasp the various outcomes that stem from one decision could surprise others. Make an effort to connect and brainstorm with friends. Screen your calls, knowing full well you easily could go overboard if you are not careful. Tonight: Out and about. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You'll want to deal with an important matter that might be affecting your ability to move forward. Be aware that relationships with siblings could be difficult right now. Share your feelings and clear the air to allow greater depth. Tonight: Pretend that you are Casper the Ghost. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) The Moon in your sign highlights you. Over the next few days, you'll move a project to completion, or at least to the next phase. Events occur that will leave you shaking your head in amazement. Know that you don't need to run interference. Tonight: Go for what you want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Take your time dealing with a difficult person. You might feel as if you can get this situation under control. You will succeed if you remain positive. Understand what is going on with others. Open up discussions once everyone is relaxed. Tonight: Express your ideas clearly. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You open up to new possibilities. The unexpected plays into a decision. A close friend understands why you are following a certain course, and won't interfere with your pace or your decision. This person will give you powerful feedback. Tonight: Out among the crowds. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Be willing to take the lead with an important project. You seem to have an unusual interest in pursuing this matter. Demonstrate your leadership skills. You see what is happening in a different way from how most people involved see it. Tonight: Burn the candle at both ends. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You see what most don't. You'll want to push a key matter to fruition. Try to understand where others are coming from. You also might need to pull back in order to gain a broader perspective than you have up till now.
