When bringing a drug

By Jonathan Saltzman
DEDHAM — For 11 years, Robert K.
Coughlin has been the public face of the
state’s booming biotech industry, trumpeting its breakthrough drugs and defending
their often-dizzying price tags.
As president of the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council trade group, he lobbies
for firms that have marketed life-saving
medicines for devastating blood cancers, a
rare inherited muscle-wasting disorder, and
many other terrible diseases.
But there’s no approved drug to slow the
progression of his 16-year-old son’s deadly

illness. Bobby Coughlin, a Dedham High
School junior and the youngest of three, was
born with cystic fibrosis, a rare genetic illness that attacks the lungs and other organs.
Boston-based Vertex Pharmaceuticals has
introduced three drugs since 2012 that treat
the underlying cause of the disorder in some
patients, but none of them targets his particular mutation.
That could soon change. One of two new
experimental medicines from Vertex is likely
to be approved in about a year, based on encouraging late-stage clinical results. If that
happens, it’s expected to benefit patients
with Bobby’s mutation and help the company reach a goal of making cystic fibrosis
treatable for 90 percent of patients.
Coughlin, 49, knows better than most

calling for an immediate end to new fees that cost
employers across the state $300 million last year,
noting that Beacon Hill failed to follow through on
its part of a bargain to tame the rising costs of the

Governor Charlie Baker proposed the fees and legislators
approved them in 2017, requiring employers, over two years,
to contribute more toward the
costs of the state program that

said. The fees have generated tens of millions more

Following a lawsuit accusing Dartmouth College
of failing to protect women from sexual assault and
harassment, many students, faculty, and alumni
fear administrators have not yet reckoned with a
culture that allowed what the plaintiffs called a
“predators’ club” to flourish on campus.
A group of alumni and students is seeking more
training for staff, greater transparency about sexual
harassment incidents, and more robust mental
health counseling for victims of sexual harassment.
“There needs to be really broad cultural change
at the institutional level,” said Diana Whitney, who
graduated from the college in 1995 and is a spokeswoman for the Dartmouth Community Against
Gender Harassment & Sexual Violence. “We don’t
see this as an isolated incident at Dartmouth.”

Government shutdown taking toll on US parks
Many still open
but with little or
no staff on duty
By Ellen Knickmeyer
and Jocelyn Gecker
feces, overflowing garbage, illegal off-roading, and other damaging behavior in fragile areas
were beginning to overwhelm
some of the West’s iconic national parks, as a partial government shutdown left the areas open to visitors but with little staff on duty.
‘‘It’s a free-for-all,’’ Dakota
Snider, 24, who lives and works
in Yosemite Valley, said by telephone Monday, as Yosemite National Park officials announced
closings of some minimally supervised campgrounds and
public areas within the park
that are overwhelmed.
‘‘It’s so heartbreaking. There
is more trash and human waste
and disregard for the rules than
I’ve seen in my four years living
here,’’ Snider said.
The partial federal government shutdown, now into its
11th day, has forced furloughs
of hundreds of thousands of
federal employees. This has left
many parks without most of the
rangers and others who staff
campgrounds and otherwise
keep parks running.
Unlike shutdowns in some
previous administrations, the
Trump administration was
leaving parks open to visitors
despite the furloughs, said John
Garder, senior budget director
of the nonprofit National Parks
Conservation Association.
‘‘We’re afraid that we’re going to start seeing significant
damage to the natural resources in parks and potentially to
historic and other cultural artifacts,’’ Garder said. ‘‘We’re con-
cerned there’ll be impacts to
visitors’ safety.’’
‘‘It’s really a nightmare scenario,’’ Garder said.
Under the park service’s
shutdown plan, authorities
have to close any area where
garbage or other problems become threats to health and safety or to wildlife, spokesman Jeremy Barnum said Monday.
In the southern Sierra Nevada in Central California,
some areas of the Sequoia and
Kings Canyon national parks
were closed Monday evening.
In Sequoia, home to immense
and ancient giant sequoias,
General Highway was closed
because overflowing trash bins
were spreading litter and posed
a threat to wildlife and the icy,
jammed roadway was seeing up
to three-hour delays, according
to the National Park Service.
Campers at Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California’s deserts were reporting
squabbles as different families
laid claims to sites, with no
rangers on hand to adjudicate,
said Ethan Feltges, who operates the Coyote Corner gift shop
outside Joshua Tree.
Feltges and other business
owners around Joshua Tree had
stepped into the gap as much as
possible, hauling trailers into
the park to empty overflowing
trash bins and sweeping and
stocking restrooms that were
still open, Feltges said.
Feltges himself had set up a
portable toilet at his store to
help the visitors still streaming
in and out of the park. He was
spending his days outside, offering tips about the park in
place of the rangers who normally would be present.
‘‘The whole community has
come together,’’ Feltges said.
‘‘Everyone loves the park. And
there’s a lot of businesses that
actually need the park.’’
But some are seizing on the
shortage of park staffers to offroad illegally and otherwise
damage the park, as well as relieving themselves in the open,
a park statement said. Joshua
Tree said it would begin closing
some campgrounds.
At Yosemite, Snider, the local resident, said crowds of visitors were driving into the park
to take advantage of free admission, with only a few park rangers working and a limited number of restrooms open.
Visitors were allowing their
dogs to run off-leash in an area
rich with bears and other wildlife, and scattering bags of garbage along the roads, Snider
said. ‘‘You’re looking at Yosemite Falls and in front of you is
plastic bottles and trash bags.’’
In the nation’s capital, the
Smithsonian museums and the
National Zoo were finally shuttered. The vastly popular sites
had been able to remain open
through the holidays after cob-
bling together funds from various, nondirect appropriations.
T hose have run out, the
Washington Post reported.
Native Americans have been
hit particularly hard by the
shutdown. For one tribe of
Chippewas in Michigan’s Upper
Peninsula, the shutdown comes
with a price tag of about
$100,000 every day, The New
York Times reported. That’s
how much federal money they
received to keep health clinics
staffed, food pantry shelves full,
and employees paid.
The tribe is using its own
funds to cover the shortfalls for
now. But if the standoff in
Washington continues much
longer, that stopgap money will
be depleted. Later this month,
workers could be furloughed
and health services could be
pared back. “Everything,” said
Aaron Payment, chairman of
the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe, “is on

New Horizons spacecraft signals
successful flyby of Ultima Thule
By Kenneth Chang
LAUREL, Md. — Thirtythree minutes after midnight,
scientists, engineers, and wellwishers here at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory celebrated the moment
that NASA’s New Horizons
spacecraft made its closest approach to a small, icy world
nicknamed Ultima Thule.
Almost 10 hours later, the
New Horizons team finally received confirmation that the
spacecraft had indeed done everything they asked. In the
days and months to come, the
scientists expect to receive pictures of Ultima Thule and scientific data that could lead to
discoveries about the origins
of the sun and the planets.
That is the latest triumph
in a journey that started in
2006, first on a mission to explore Pluto. Thirteen years
and more than 4 billion miles
later, New Horizons has provided humanity’s first glimpse
of a distant fragment that
could be unchanged from the
solar system’s earliest days.
Ultima Thule, the name
that the mission team selected
for the object from more than
34,000 suggestions, means
“beyond the borders of the
known world.”
During the flyby, the spacecraft was out of communication with Earth because it was

busy making scientific observations. Only hours later did it
turn its antenna toward home.
Then, it sent a 15-minute update on its status, confirming
it had survived the flyby. The
message took six hours to travel the 4.1 billion miles at the
speed of light to Earth. Future
transmissions are expected to
convey new pictures and readings from the flyby.
At 10:31 a.m., the mission
operations center at Johns
Hopkins, which runs the mission for NASA, confirmed that
a radio dish in Madrid, part of
NASA’s Deep Space Network,
had locked in to the signal
from New Horizons.
“We have a healthy spacecraft,” Alice Bowman, the mission operations manager, an-
nounced following a methodical check of the spacecraft’s
systems. “We’ve just accomplished the most distant flyby.”
Clapping and cheering
erupted in the room where the
mood had been quiet and nervous a few minutes earlier.
“I don’t know about you,
but I’m really liking this 2019
thing so far,” S. Alan Stern, the
mission’s principal investigator, said on Tuesday.
The scientists revealed new
images of Ultima Thule, taken
before the flyby when the
spacecraft was still a half-million miles away.
“Even though it’s a pixelated blob still,” said Harold A.
Weaver Jr., the project scientist, “it’s a better pixelated

Pickup truck sought in Texas attack
HOUSTON — Investigators

Homicides in Chicago fall in 2018
CHICAGO — Preliminary
numbers indicate that homicides in Chicago fell by about
100 last year compared to
2017, though the total again
eclipses the number of homicides in Los Angeles and New
York combined, according to
data released Tuesday.
Police in Chicago, the nation’s third-largest city, report
that 561 homicides were committed between Jan. 1 and
Dec. 31, 2018. That compares
to 660 homicides in 2017 and
more than 770 in 2016, which
marked a 19-year high that
put a national spotlight on
Chicago’s persistently high
rates of gun violence.
Chicago police credit the
decreases in part to the addition of more than 1,000 new
officers in recent years. Police
also cite the creation of hightech nerve centers, where officers rely on gunshot-detection
technology and predictive analytics that quickly get police to
areas where violence is most
likely to erupt. Official numbers for 2018 are expected to
be released in several weeks,
according to the department.
Police Superintendent Eddie
Johnson has previously said ‘‘a
reasonable goal’’ would be to
one day get the annual number of homicides to below 300.
NYC plastic foam

NEW YORK — The new

New York City’s longplanned ban took effect Tuesday. The prohibition includes
food containers and loose
packing fill made from what’s
known as expanded polystyrene. Exceptions include
butcher-counter containers for
raw meat. City lawmakers approved the ban in 2013, but a
lawsuit from the restaurant industry held it off for years. A
judge ruled this past June that
it could go forward.

Israel’s opposition splits
in dramatic move on TV
By Loveday Morris
year did not start well for veteran Israeli leftist politician Tzipi Livni, who was publicly
ditched by her opposition partner on television on Tuesday,
as Israel’s political drama
ramps up ahead of elections.
Livni, formerly Israel’s foreign minister, sat stony faced
and silent next to Avi Gabbay,
leader of the left-leaning Zionist Union, as he announced the
move in a news conference in
the Knesset, Israel’s parliament. Gabbay’s Labor Party
and Livni’s Hatnua party have
been in an alliance since 2014.
‘‘I hoped and believed this
alliance would bring about our
blossoming,’’ Gabbay said.
‘‘But the public is smart, saw
this is not the situation, and
distanced itself from us.’’
‘‘Tzipi, I wish you success in
the election, in any party you
are in,’’ he said to gasps from
the room. Livni takes over the
microphone to say she will not
respond before leaving.
The move came as Israel
prepares for early elections,
which Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition last month announced
would take place in April. The
polls predict another win for
the incumbent leader’s party,
despite Netanyahu being investigated in three corruption
cases and the police recommending that he be indicted.
As Gabbay pointed out in
his speech, support for the opposition Zionist Union has
slipped away, with polls showing it doing poorly in elections,
winning as few as eight seats
compared with the 24 it currently holds. His decision to so
publicly split with Livni sets
the tone for an ugly fight.
Later explaining his decision, Gabbay said that Livni
‘‘didn’t have a good word to say
about me,’’ the Israeli press reported, using a turn of phrase
comparing his action to having
to eating excrement.
When later asked about his
comments in a news conference, Livni responded: ‘‘I
didn’t look at his plate. I don’t
know what he ate.’’

Russian baby rescued after 36 hours in frozen rubble of collapsed building
MOSCOW — Laboring
through sub-freezing temperatures, Russian rescue workers

On Tuesday, to everyone’s

named Ivan Fokin, was in extremely serious condition, officials said, with fractures and a
head injury and was suffering

Afghan forces repel multiple deadly Taliban assaults
KABUL — At least 21 Afghan police officers were killed
in three simultaneous Taliban
assaults Monday night in
northern Afghanistan. Despite
civilians being nearby, security
forces fired artillery rounds to
repel the militant advances.
The hours-long attack
mostly focused on overtaking
oil wells and vehicles near the
capital in Sar-e Pol province,
officials said, as the Taliban bid
to demonstrate power and undermine government control
during peace talks to end the
17-year-old war.
Militants used rifles and
rocket-propelled grenades in
the assault, which also injured
at least 23 police officers, Zabihullah Amani, a spokesman
for the provincial governor,
said Tuesday.
‘‘The areas are with the government, but they are under
range of Taliban fire,’’ Amani
said. ‘‘We still have not received any assistance.’’
Three senior security officials — an intelligence officer
and two police commanders —
were killed in the attacks, said
Mohammad Noor Rahmani,
the chief of the provincial
Afghan forces fired Sovietera D-30 howitzers to repel
militants on the capital outskirts, Amani said. The Associated Press reported the barrage forced civilians to flee to
safety, though officials said
there were no reports of civilian casualties.
The Taliban, which claimed
responsibility for the attack,
suffered casualties in their assault, Amani said. But officials
have not said how many militants were killed or wounded.
Separately, in the northern
province of Balkh, the Taliban
struck a security outpost in the
Chemtal District, killing six
police officers and wounding
seven others, said Rahmatullah Khan, a local police commander, according to The New

Man is arrested
in ‘terror’ attack
LONDON — Police in Manchester said Tuesday that a
stabbing attack at the train
station overnight is being
treated as terrorism.
On New Year’s Eve, shortly
before 9 p.m., a man wielding
a knife attacked a couple in
their 50s and a police officer at
Manchester’s Victoria Station.
Officers tackled the suspect, a
25-year-old man, who was arrested at the scene.
The couple sustained ‘‘serious’’ injuries and are recovering in a hospital, police said.
The officer stabbed in the
shoulder while subduing the
suspect was released Tuesday.
Chief Constable Ian Hopkins commended the bravery
of the four officers involved in
stopping the attacker.
Elsewhere in Europe, in the
early hours of Tuesday, a driver
rammed his silver Mercedes
into a group of people in the
German city of Bottrop. Authorities said that at least four
people were injured, including
Syrian and Afghan citizens. A
50-year-old man was arrested
on suspicion of carrying out a
xenophobic attack.
A six-pack for
how much?
CHANGE IN POWER — Brazil’s new President Jair Bolsonaro (from left), his wife,
Michelle Bolsonaro, the country’s new Vice President Hamilton Mourao, and his
wife, Paula Mourao, prepared to be welcomed by outgoing president Michel Temer
and his wife, Marcela Temer (right), at the Planalto presidential palace in Brasilia
on Tuesday after a swearing-in ceremony.
Getting a beer has never
been easy in Qatar. But buying
a six-pack will now set you
back at least $26, thanks to an
alcohol tax that went into effect on Tuesday.
Many countries have tried
to regulate alcohol consumption by making drinking expensive. But Qatar, a predominantly Muslim country that
has long had strict limits on
the purchase and consumption of alcohol, has essentially
doubled the cost overnight.
A 100 percent tax, calculated on the previous sales price,
has been imposed on all alcohol imports, the country’s sole
liquor retailer, the Qatar Distribution Co., told customers
in a letter.
This brings the price of a
24-pack of beer to 382 Qatari
riyals, or about $104, and a 1liter bottle of gin to 304 riyals,
according to news reports.

advanced liver disease as a result of cystic fibrosis, his dad
said, and may eventually need a
liver transplant.
“As far as I’m concerned, it’s
crunch time,” said Coughlin, a
former state representative
from Dedham who served in
governor Deval Patrick’s administration for seven months
before joining MassBio in 2007.
“If that drug can be approved
within the next year or so, that’s
great news.”
Coughlin often publicly
mentions Bobby’s ordeal to underscore the high stakes of drug
development. Indeed, Coughlin’s experience with cystic fibrosis contributed to MassBio’s
decision to hire him, according
to Mark Leuchtenberger, a drug
industry veteran who chaired
the group’s board of directors at
the time.
“Anyone who is touched by
these terrible diseases has an
understanding that others just
can’t feel or understand,” said
Leuchtenberger, interim chief
executive of Brooklyn ImmunoTherapeutics of New York, and
still a MassBio board member.
“That’s a source of his energy.”
Coughlin, of course, brought
other assets to the job. His political experience has helped
him lobby for biopharma firms
that have received millions in
state tax incentives, and to fight
government efforts to limit
drug prices. MassBio represents
1,200 companies and gives
Coughlin a generous compensation package that in 2017 totaled $774,114, according to a
tax filing for the nonprofit.
He’s also a good schmoozer,
by pedigree and practice. The
youngest of six sons of the late
Paul Coughlin, a Dedham selectman, Robert Coughlin was
elected to Dedham’s School
Committee at 20 and then
served on the town’s Board of
Selectmen before his 2002 election to the Legislature.
Coughlin’s schmoozing landed him in trouble right after he
joined MassBio. The state Ethics Commission fined him
$10,000 in 2008 after it concluded he secretly sought the
MassBio job while negotiating
tax breaks for the biotech industry as a key aide to Patrick.
As Coughlin recently discussed his son’s cystic fibrosis
with a reporter at a hotel in
Boston’s Seaport District, his affability gave way to sadness. His
voice quavered with emotion.
He brushed away tears at times,
but said he’s more optimistic
than ever that “we’re going to
be able to beat this.”
Cystic fibrosis afflicts about
30,000 Americans. It’s caused
by a defective gene that results
in a thick, sticky buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and
other organs. People with the
disease have inherited two copies of the defective gene, one
from each parent. They have to
take a slew of drugs to improve
their breathing and ability to
process foods. The average life
expectancy is about 37, according to the National Institutes of
Bobby takes 50 to 100 pills
daily to aid digestion, ward off
infections, and treat his organs.
He spends at least 45 minutes a
day inhaling medicated mists
through a nebulizer. For about
20 minutes a day he also uses a
contraption that resembles a
defibrillator and emits sound
waves to loosen mucus in his
B e tw e e n t h e r e g i m e n s ,
homework, and other activities
— he plays basketball with
friends but no longer plays ice
hockey because he can’t risk a
blow to his liver — Bobby only
gets about five or six hours of
sleep a night.
“The hardest part about having CF is probably just maintaining all the treatments when
pretty much all of my friends,
none of them have to really do
any of that,” said Bobby, who
hopes to go to college in the
Boston area.
He has to be particularly
careful to avoid germs. His
mother, Christine Coughlin,
said, “I can pick out people
coughing when I enter a room,
I’m so sensitive to it.”
In an odd coincidence, Robert Coughlin got involved in the
fight against cystic fibrosis long
before Bobby was born — even
before he was married.
Since 1995, he has served
every year as honorary chairman of the nonprofit Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Great
Strides fund-raising walk in
Dedham. Coughlin said he began volunteering as a selectman because a sister-in-law and
a friend from Dedham High
School have family members
with the disorder.
But his immediate family
wasn’t touched by the disease
until December 2001. Christine
was pregnant with Bobby when
a prenatal screening test — one
that had just become routine —
revealed that she had one copy
of the defective gene, making
her a carrier of the disease.
Coughlin got tested and discovered he did, too.
On New Year’s Eve in 2001,
the Coughlins met with a genetic counselor at Boston University Medical Center. He told them
that their baby had inherited
both defective copies and
would be born with the disease.
The Coughlins were staggered. They had two healthy
children, Mary Kate and Paul.
(Mary Kate, the couple later
learned, is a carrier, but Paul
isn’t.) The Coughlins, who are
Catholic, would not consider
terminating the pregnancy.

reaction of friends with whom
he volunteered at the foundation when he told them his son

2002 as Coughlin ran — successfully — for the first of three
terms he won in the House.
Coughlin has drawn
strength from others affected
by the illness, including Joseph
J. O’Donnell, a Boston corporate tycoon whose son, Joey,
died of cystic fibrosis in 1986 at
the age of 12. O’Donnell has
helped to raise hundreds of millions of dollars for the foundation, much of which has gone to
Vertex for research.
“We’re going to raise whatever money it takes to buy a
cure for your kid,” Coughlin remembers him promising in a
phone call. “Your kid isn’t going
to die from this disease like my
kid did.”
The fight against cystic fibrosis has made great progress
since Joey’s death. In 1989, Dr.
Francis S. Collins, now the director of the National Institutes
of Health, codiscovered the
gene that causes the disease.
“We thought it was all over,”
O’Donnell recalled. But that
breakthrough also revealed that
developing a drug to treat the
underlying cause of the disorder would be “5,000 times more
complicated than we thought,”
O’Donnell said. Scientists have
identified over 1,700 different
In 2012, the Food and Drug
Administration approved the
first such drug, Kalydeco, made
by Vertex. The FDA has since
approved two more Vertex
medicines, Orkambi and Symdeko. Today, more than half of
the 30,000 people with cystic fi-
brosis are eligible for at least
one of the drugs, according to
Then came news in November about a potential treatment
that could finally help Bobby.
Vertex reported encouraging
data from late-stage trials of a
new medicine that combines
three compounds.
The combination improved
lung function up to 14 percent,
which may not sound huge, but
is “a bigger magnitude of clinical benefit for any drug we’ve
ever seen in cystic fibrosis,” according to Brian Skorney, an
analyst for Robert W. Baird &
Co. in New York.
Data from a second Vertex
triple-combination drug in latestage trials are due early this

plans to seek FDA approval for
the one that yields the best results by the middle of this year.
“This marks an important
milestone in our journey to develop medicines to treat the underlying cause of CF in all patients with this devastating disease,” said Kym White, a Vertex
While the Vertex drugs have
already transformed some patients’ lives, their price tags
have drawn fire. Kalydeco has a
list price of more than $311,000
a year, Orkambi $272,000, and
Symdeko $292,000.
Paul M. Quinton, a professor
of pediatrics at the University of
California San Diego School of
Medicine, has cystic fibrosis
himself, has spent his career researching the disease, and takes
Symdeko. (At 74, he says he is
“an outlier” for having survived
so long.) He said the medicine
has dramatically improved his
health, but the cost is “horrible.”
Although Medicare and his
wife’s health insurer pick up
most of the expense, he said,
that’s passed on to taxpayers
and insurance customers. He
pins much of the blame on the
salaries of Vertex executives.
“When the executive officers
are all in the multimillion-dollar range, of course you’re going
to have to charge more for the
drug,” Quinton said.
In 2015, Vertex shareholders, in a nonbind ing vot e,
slammed company CEO Jeffrey
Leiden for his pay. Leiden in
2014 received a compensation
package of $36.6 million, the
highest in the state for the head
of a public company. His compensation last year fell to $17.2
But Coughlin, who speaks
often to Leiden, rejects the criticism. He said drug development is expensive and the company reinvests the money it
makes in research. Efforts to
limit what Vertex charges for
medicines — such as New
York’s recent request for a 70
percent discount on Orkambi
for Medicaid patients — would
be “catastrophic for patients,”
he said.
“If the early-stage Vertex
drugs weren’ t reimbursed,
there’d be no next generation,”
Coughlin said. “We wouldn’t

VATICAN CITY — The Vatican blocked US bishops from
taking measures to address the
clergy sex abuse scandal because US church leaders didn’t
discuss the legally problematic
proposals with the Holy See
enough beforehand, according
to a letter obtained by The Associated Press.
The Nov. 11 letter from the
Vatican’s Cardinal Marc Ouellet
provides the primary reason
that Rome balked at the measures that were to be voted on
by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops at its Nov. 12-14
meeting. The blocked vote
stunned abuse survivors and
other Catholics who were demanding action from US bishops to address clergy sex abuse
and coverup.
Ouellet’s letter undermines
the version of events provided
by the conference president,
Cardinal Daniel DiNardo. It
could also provide fodder for
questions during a spiritual retreat of US bishops, dedicated
to the abuse crisis, that opens
Wednesday in Chicago.
T he y may want to know
why, as Ouellet noted in the letter, the draft proposals only arrived at the Vatican on Nov. 8,
four days before the US bishops’ meeting began. While the
Vatican is known for its slow
pace, even the speediest bureaucracy would have found it
difficult to review and sign off
on sensitive legal documents in
that time.
‘‘Considering the nature and
scope of the documents being
proposed by the [conference], I
believe it would have been beneficial to have allowed for more
time to consult with this and
other congregations with competence over the ministry and
discipline of bishops,’’ Ouellet
wrote to DiNardo.
Such back-and-forth, he
wrote, would have allowed the
documents to ‘‘properly mature.’’
The main goal of the US
bishops’ fall meeting had been
to approve a code of conduct for
bishops and create a lay-led
commission to receive complaints against them. The measures were a crisis response to
the scandal over former cardinal Theodore McCarrick, a
once-senior American cleric
who is now accused of molesting minors and adults, and new
revelations of old sex abuse cases in Pennsylvania.

In a country where federal
officials spent over a year
promising to ban bump stock
devices that turn a semiautomatic rifle into something approximating a machine gun,
only finally getting around to it
last month, teaching high
schoolers to patch up their
classmates seems to send an
unmistakable and terrifying
message: You’re on your own.
For anyone sending their
kids off to school every day —
and my daughter just started
preschool — it’s all tough to
stomach. Meanwhile, a Florida
commission formed in the
wake of the shooting at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High
School endorsed a program
that allows for teachers to carry guns in schools. Neither
idea does anything to address
school shootings until the moment someone opens fire.
What kind of dystopian educational system involves arming teachers and turning JV

Meanwhile, doctors all over
America have become prominent voices standing up for
gun control. Their voices were
strong enough that the National Rifle Association warned
physicians to “stay in their
lane,” as if the damage done by
firearms is outside the purview
of the people in the ER.
“This is one of the largest
public health issues facing this
nation,” said Goralnick, a former officer in the Navy. “We’ve
got to take it head on.”
But that doesn’t preclude
working to make the next mass
shooting — and there will be
another one, and another one,
hard as that is to accept — a little less deadly.

that until Congress takes real

Companies demand state halt

In addition, state tax collections have exceeded targets
over the past several months,
putting the state on firmer financial footing.
The fate of the business
group’s request is uncertain.
The governor’s office and leaders of the House and Senate did
not say whether they would

Baker first proposed the assessment in January 2017 —
despite earlier pledges from the
Republican governor that he
would not raise fees. He argued
that employers whose low-wage
workers are enrolled in
MassHealth should pay more
toward the costs of the program.
The proposal upset business
groups, but after months of negotiations, administration officials scaled back their plan so it
had more support from employers. An existing assessment
called the employer medical assistance contribution increased

The administration also proposed a series of changes to
tackle the costs of MassHealth,
including toughening eligibility
rules and covering fewer prescription drugs. One proposal
to move 140,000 adults from
MassHealth to other subsidized
health plans was criticized by
advocates, who said the change
would hurt poor working families.
In the summer of 2017, the
state Legislature, controlled by
Democrats, rejected Baker’s
cost-cutting ideas but approved
the new fees on employers.
(Federal officials also rejected
the administration’s
MassHealth proposals).
Later, the Senate and House
each approved health care bills,
but neither bill focused on
MassHealth, and both died at
the end of the formal legislative
session in July when lawmakers
failed to work out a compromise.
The new fees on employers,
however, went into effect. Employers can request a waiver
from the fees if they prove a
hardship. Of 246 such waiver
requests, administration officials said they have allowed 99.
Asked whether the governor
would support AIM’s request to
end the fees early, spokesman
Brendan Moss said only that
Baker would carefully review
any legislation that reaches his
“The Baker-Polito Administration proposed a series of reforms to protect taxpayers from

a statement.
Administration officials and
top lawmakers don’t appear to
be any closer to agreement on
how to tackle costs in
Catherine Williams, a
spokeswoman for House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo, said the
speaker “is proud” that the
House didn’t vote to change
MassHealth eligibility requirements.
“The House will review any
additional proposals on this issue via the legislative process
during the new session,” she
said in a statement.
Senate President Karen E.
Spilka, said in a statement that
senators will keep working to
minimize the “negative impacts” of fees.
“The Senate will continue to
take the lead on initiatives
which focus on reining in
health care costs across the
board while ensuring we increase access to quality care,”
Spilka added.
MassHealth represents the
single biggest chunk of the state
budget, though about half its
costs are paid by the federal
government. The program provides health coverage for 1.85
million people in Massachusetts, including low-income residents and those with disabilities.
Administration officials
have taken more modest steps
to control MassHealth costs, including by ensuring that only
people eligible for benefits receive them. They also restructured the program to push doctors and hospitals to slash costs
by keeping patients within set
networks and better managing
their care.
Jon B. Hurst, president of
the Retailers Association of
Massachusetts, said policy
makers should keep their focus
on controlling the costs of

“However, it’s impossible to

Democrats have not forgotten that a year ago, when they
talked to Trump about DACA,
he promised to work with
them on a “bill of love,” only to
back away, prompting Schumer to declare that negotiating
with Trump was like “negotiating with Jell-O.”
Senator Chris Van Hollen,

the challenge lies with the Republican majority in the Senate.

Welcoming aboard
the newest T manager
with a to­do list
ongratulations — and condolences — to Steve Poftak, the new
general manager of the MBTA.
It’s a tough, thankless job, but someone has to do it. Poftak
officially took the helm on Jan. 1 and is the fifth person to give it
a try under Governor Charlie Baker.
Poftak follows Luis Ramirez, a former General Electric Co. executive
with no experience in public transit, who moved here from Texas to take the
position. Culture shock, along with a resume that screamed “bad fit,” apparently hastened the Ramirez exit after only 15 months.
By contrast, Poftak, who has been serving as vice chair of the MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board, is an experienced insider and public
policy expert. Known for deep thoughts about transportation, he has been
running the Rappaport Institute at Harvard University. Before that, he led
research projects for the Pioneer Institute, a think tank known for its devotion to fiscal conservatism. During the search for his predecessor, Poftak also served briefly as interim GM.
Not that he asked, but here’s a a to-do list:
ª Let the GM — not the secretary of trans­
portation — be the T’s hands­on, day­to­day
manager. Not that Secretary Stephanie Pollack
isn’t capable, but her job is to oversee and set
big-picture priorities for all aspects of transportation; she shouldn’t be living in the weeds of
MBTA operations. Poftak should be the one
making the trains and buses run on time, and
be accountable when they’re not.
ª Challenge the status quo. The T, a massive, insular, slow-moving bureaucracy, needs
constant shaking up. After Beverly Scott left in
amid piles of snow that crippled the T, Baker
Steve Poftak
brought in a colleague from his venture capital
days — Brian Shortsleeve, who came in as chief administrator, focusing primarily on the agency’s financial issues, and later was promoted to general
manager. During a tenure aimed at shaking things up, Shortsleeve replaced
about half of the top management team.
ª Keep relentless focus on the T’s capital spending plan. The $8 billion
capital spending budget targets three areas: reliability, modernization, and
expansion. For years, the T wasn’t spending all it had because of problems
getting projects underway. Things have improved under the Baker administration, but Poftak should still double the rate of capital spending on reliability and modernization projects involving power, signals, bridges, and
tunnels. Keeping those projects moving is hard work, requiring constant
pushing from the top down and hiring more skilled workers. But if it
doesn’t happen, passengers in spiffy new Red and Orange Line cars could
end up stranded, due to the same old aging-infrastructure problems.
ª Show some love for commuters. Use some of that capital budget to
spruce up worn stations. Fix corroding ramps, leaky ceilings, and broken elevators. A preliminary review already revealed that more than half of 378
stations and parking facilities need significant repairs. Safety takes precedence over cosmetics, but a better atmosphere can boost confidence in the
long-range plan. Showing some love could also get more commuters to stick
with the T and reverse the declining subway ridership of recent years.
ª Keep the Fiscal Management Control Board. Established in 2015 after
the system’s snow-related crisis, the board provides critical fiscal oversight
and brings welcome transparency to transit issues. Poftak should know; he
has been a member of the board. By statute, the board is due to go out of
business in June 2020. Poftak should find a way to keep some version of it
going. Meanwhile, Poftak’s new job leaves an opening on the control board.
Activists want to fill it with a rider advocate — a good idea.
ª Beyond raising fares, the T needs to make the case for new revenue.
A recent report by the Commission on the Future of Transportation calls for
the state to develop long-term financing for the transportation system. One
potential funding source involves partnering with other states to develop a
low-carbon fuel standard that could raise up to $5.5 billion in Massachusetts over the next decade. The report also proposes the state explore congestion-pricing: levying tolls on traffic heading into the city at busy periods
to encourage drivers to commute at off-peak times. In both cases, proceeds
from these policies could be reinvested in mass transit.
ª Think about legacy projects. As the city grows, so should the T. That’s
sometimes code for new subway extensions, but that’s not necessarily how a
legacy project needs to look. Convert commuter rail lines to high-level platforms. Create bus-only lanes. Electrify the buses or the trains.
Based on Poftak’s experience, he understands the challenges that lie
ahead. Let’s hope he sticks around long enough to deliver the public transit
system our region deserves. Maybe it will be good enough for even the governor to start riding the T.

First, let’s fix
the political
B y L o r i Tr a h a n
ver the course of
nearly a year on
the campaign
trail, I heard
voters time and
again express
deep-seated frustration and cynicism with the way
Washington works. What was holding up common-sense gun safety
measures? Why do prescription
drugs cost so much? Why are working families struggling to pay the
mortgage, put their kids through
school, and save for retirement?
The American people rightly view
Washington as perpetuating
a rigged system that tilts for
special interests over families. It’s not surprising that
voters’ approval of Congress
stands at an abysmal 21 percent. It’s also not surprising
that public trust in government remains at an all-time
low, at a historic 18 percent. Before
the 116th Congress can tackle the
many problems facing working
families, we need to fix our system
and restore faith in democracy.
I know these challenges are not
new. More than 20 years ago, I was
a staffer for then-congressman
Marty Meehan. Marty joined Senator John McCain and others in introducing and ultimately passing
the bicameral Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, (commonly referred to as Shays-Meehan or McCain-Feingold,) which banned unlimited political expenditures and
is still considered the most significant campaign finance system reform. Sadly, opponents of good
government, and Supreme Court
decisions like Citizens United, have
eroded those reforms, taking power away from the American people
and handing it over to wealthy donors and special interests.
As part of the largest Democratic freshman class elected to the
House since Watergate, this Congress — and particularly my freshmen colleagues — have a mandate
to fix problems in our political system, to unrig our democracy, to
unmoor the entrenched special interests in Washington, and to usher in a new standard of ethics and
shines a light on dark money in
our political system by requiring
super PACs and other shadowy organizations to disclose their donors and expenditures, and creates
a matching system for citizenowned elections, allowing everyday Americans to exercise their
due influence over our politics. Finally, H.R. 1 restores ethical guardrails in Washington, breaking the
influence economy, cracking down
on the revolving door, and stomping out conflicts of interest — including by requiring presidents to
release their tax returns.
This Congress has
an opportunity to
strengthen our system
of government and
build trust with the
American people. We
can encourage voting,
reduce the influence of
money on elections,
and affirm that our priorities are
shaped by voters and not by special
interests. Once we unshackle Congress from the scourge of millionaires, billionaires, and corporate
interests, we can get serious about
reducing the cost of health care
and prescription drugs, raising
wages, creating better job opportunities, mitigating the effects of climate change, and taking real action on a whole host of issues that
Americans care about.
This Congress has an
opportunity to strengthen our
system of government and build
trust with the American people.
integrity that ensures that public
servants serve the public, not line

My first act as a member of
Congress will be to cosponsor H.R.
1, a comprehensive package of reforms to our system of government. I hope and expect that the
House of Representatives will
move quickly to pass this important legislation.
Big problems require bold solutions. H.R. 1 includes sweeping
changes to our election laws, including automatic voter registration, an end to voter-roll purges,
guaranteed early voting, redistricting reform, and making Election

I didn’t realize it at the time, but this
phrase would become much more
than a slogan; it has become a constant call to action.
As the state Senate opens its

Court on Wednesday, that call to

markable change, not just in our
state, but nationally and globally.
Technology has radically changed
the way we live and work, and
shifting priorities have caused us
to rethink everything from where
we live to how we commute. We
are also experiencing pressures
due to a neglected transportation
system and soaring housing prices, among other things.
The complex challenges facing
us in this uncertain future are
daunting. But Massachusetts can

Your guess is as good as theirs
ondering what sort of winter Americans are
in for, The Wall Street Journal last week
checked the 2019 edition of the venerable Old
Farmer’s Almanac, which is published each year
in Dublin, N.H. It predicts a mild winter with
“above-normal temperatures almost everywhere” this season.
To confirm that forecast, the Journal also checked the equally
venerable Farmers’ Almanac based in Lewiston, Maine. It warns
that Americans should expect “teeth-chattering cold, plentiful
snow” and a “chilly, wintry mix.”
They can’t both be right. Yet each almanac is confident in its
predictions, and each claims a high rate of accuracy. Does that
sound familiar? Of course it does. It sounds like the endless
parade of experts, insiders, and pundits who routinely predict
the future, and routinely get it wrong.
The other day Politico rounded up a handful of the least prescient political predictions of 2018. Among them: Huffington

New wrinkles in our
foreign policy
Trump goes it alone — that’s what
makes him so dangerous
Donald Trump clearly has been reckless in his recent behavior, which has included his closing down of our government and his impulsive decisions to withdraw troops from
Syria and Afghanistan, provoking the resignation of General James Mattis as secretary of defense. Many have noted
Trump’s rejection of all normal procedure and his increasing isolation. We would argue that both are expressions of
his psychological inability to collaborate with others or receive their counsel in relation to sustained policies and
principles. This is so because Trump’s reality is completely
solipsistic, that is, self-contained, unrelated to truth or evidence. Nothing could be more dangerous in a head of state,
and there is every reason to believe that his psychological
condition will continue to deteriorate under the stress of
criticism, crisis, and investigation.
Unfortunately, our constitutional arrangements for removing presidents from office focus more on acute medical
or mental breakdown than on this kind of manifest unfitness. Yet it remains the responsibility of our elected political leaders to find a means of ending the Trump presidency
and protecting our country and the world from the profound threat he represents.

Trump might get foreign policy right,
but the method is madness
Re “Trump confronts his own militarists” by Stephen Kinzer (Ideas, Dec. 23): It doesn’t take a weatherman to see
how disastrous and misguided US policy toward the Middle
East and Afghanistan has been. At least it has been less despicable than Vladimir Putin’s or Bashar al-Assad’s.
Kinzer gets this, but he misunderstands how Donald
Trump develops policies. Narcissism and chaos seem to be
his guiding principles, as well as love for autocrats, and if
Trump got it right this time, it will be because the broken
clock tells the right time twice a day.

Increasing health care costs
serve as a silent stranglehold
on budgets everywhere. To
continue our leadership in this
area, we can address the impact of rising drug prices by
passing legislation that ensures
customers are provided with
relevant drug cost and efficacy
information, and that the
state’s health care cost oversight
process includes pharmaceuticals. The Senate also introduced
initiatives last session to implement more effective care delivery; we should take a close look
at those again this year.
As for climate change, our
potential for leadership is virtually limitless. We can work with
businesses and scientists to
push the envelope on clean energy technologies. Collaborating
with town and city governments, we can figure out how to
affect smart environmental
changes on a local level that also
help solve our transportation
and housing concerns. No idea
should be off the table.
The final core principle that
will serve Massachusetts well is

Trump’s approval rating would crumble to just 25 percent. In fact,
Crowley lost his seat in Congress to political neophyte Alexandria
Ocasio-Cortez, the US embassy was relocated to Jerusalem, and
Trump’s approval rating remains above 40 percent.
It’s not only weather and politics that prognosticators botch. Financial predictions are notoriously unreliable. A paper released this
year by the International Monetary Fund documented the decadeslong failure of economists to spot a looming recession until it was
already well underway. “Treasury yields have been forecast to rise
every year for the past decade,” noted The Wall Street Journal in
November 2017, “yet they have gone down more often than not.”
From military predictions to technological predictions to sports
predictions, when experts foretell the future, it’s usually safest to
assume they’re wrong. And just as that’s true of short-term
predictions, it’s also true of long-term predictions.
On Jan. 1, 1901, at the dawn of the 20th century, the editors of
The Boston Globe surveyed the international scene and assured its
readers that “the rise of Germany” posed no cause for concern,
since “of all the nations she is probably the least corrupted by the
lust of conquest.” In 1968, the Foreign Policy Association
published “Toward the Year 2018,” an anthology of predictions by
a dozen “eminent leaders” of where the world would be 50 years in
the future. A few auguries they got indisputably right — several
contributors foresaw a world in which computers and information
technology would play a central role. But many of their
predictions, from man-made hurricanes used as weapons to
antigravity cars, were laughably off-base.
It isn’t being snarky or arch to stress how inept experts are at
wealth reminds us that we are
all invested in preserving our
common good. To that end, we
must create an economic development and tax framework for
the 21st century where innovative ride- and home-sharing
companies can develop and
thrive here, but where we also
ensure we capture new revenue
to continue providing essential
services for our most vulnerable citizens.
So far we have been addressing these new industries on a
piecemeal basis, which only
serves to breed confusion for
business, government, and consumers. We must work together
to find a balance that benefits
us all.
As for building resilience, I
am proud that the Legislature
has increased the balance of our
Rainy Day Fund to more than
$2 billion — an increase of more
than 50 percent over the past
two years. More importantly, we
must continue to build resilience in our individuals, families, and communities. To that
end, I pledge to work with stakeholders across the state to make
mental health parity a reality
and end the stigma of mental illness once and for all.
Albert Camus once wrote,
“Real generosity towards the
future lies in giving all to the

predicting the future. It’s being prudent. Because they are deeply
knowledgeable in a particular field, experts are more prone than
others to view the world through a too-narrow lens, assuming that
the current trends they understand so well are indicators of what is
to come. Their expertise reinforces their confidence in their own
analysis, blinding them to contrary data or disconfirming evidence.
That helps explain why those who knew the most about the Soviet
Union, for example, didn’t foresee its collapse in 1991. Or why
judicial experts, such as constitutional law professors and former
Supreme Court clerks, aren’t very good at predicting how the high
court will rule.
In the 1980s, political psychologist Philip Tetlock asked 284
political experts to make roughly 100 predictions of future events,
and to assign a degree of probability to their forecasts. Two decades
later, with the benefit of hindsight, Tetlock was able to analyze the
accuracy of the experts’ predictions. What he discovered was that
they hit the mark only slightly more often than if they had guessed
at random. Nonexperts who keep up with current events by
regularly reading the newspaper, concluded the New Yorker in a
review of Tetlock’s study, “can guess what is likely to happen about
as accurately as the specialists whom the papers quote.”
That’s worth keeping in mind as 2019 gets underway, and from
every quarter self-assured sages and savants materialize to tell you
what to expect. As you listen to their smart, persuasive, credible
prophecies, just remember: Most of them, most of the time, will be
wrong. (You can take my word for it. After all, I’m an expert.)

As news outlets reflect on the biggest stories and themes of
2018, Giles Li’s moving, historical perspective on the inhumane treatment of immigrant families calls attention to
how shockingly tolerant we became of xenophobic malice
inflicted by our own government (“Migrant families depend
on the humanity of citizens,” Opinion, Dec. 28).
Many of us have become numb from Donald Trump’s
head-spinning routine of haranguing tweets, impulsive policy changes, and frequent staff turnover. But when Trump
and former attorney general Jeff Sessions implemented a
separation policy for Central American families seeking
asylum, they crossed the red line into the realm of intentional cruelty to children.
Border agencies were shown to have no credible plan for
reuniting already vulnerable children with their parents,
and hundreds are still being held in detention centers, often under unhealthy conditions. These kids will experience
lasting psychological damage, and it was all unnecessary,
since the use of ankle bracelets can ensure that migrants
show up for their eventual asylum hearings.
The purposeful splintering of migrant families fleeing
deadly violence in Central American countries, and our allowing it to persist, is the scandal of the year and the story
of the year. The media need look no further.
Let’s wean ourselves of
the ‘far left’ and ‘far right’ divide
It’s unfortunate that in a recent op-ed (“Thank the far right
for the government shutdown,” Opinion, Dec. 28), former
congressman Barney Frank used the term “far right” as a
description of people and policies, which led to a letter
writer hoping that that wouldn’t lead to “far left” candidates and policies. The letter concluded with a wish for
“middle-of-the-road” candidates.
Maybe Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would not
be considered “far left” if the road hadn’t veered so far to
the right in the last four decades.
What is a far-left policy? Is it a wish for health care for
all, a decent wage and protections for workers, a right not
to be grifted by corporations and obtuse user agreements?
It seems to me these might have been policies Franklin
Roosevelt or Lyndon Johnson might have supported. Were
they “far left”?
In 1971, Richard Nixon, under the guidance of conservative economist Milton Friedman, was poised to sign legislation that had passed the House, calling for a guaranteed
income, before it died from a lack of Democratic votes in
the Senate because it wasn’t perfect enough. If a candidate
today supported a universal basic income for US citizens,
would they be considered “far left” or “far right”?
Just what does this labeling mean or accomplish besides
getting people to choose a side, dig in, and lob tomatoes at
each other? We need to get specific in our political discussions or we will continue to get nowhere.

New class set to
make their marks
But these 5 lawmakers have already
made themselves known on Beacon Hill
By Matt Stout and Victoria McGrane
They’ve yet to lodge a single vote or be assigned an office.
But Beacon’s Hill incoming class of lawmakers has already sent
reverberations through the Massachusetts political scene with
surprising victories and, in some cases, blunt commentary.
Here are five faces to watch come Jan. 2, when they’re
sworn in for the first time as state legislators:
State Representative­elect
Nika Elugardo
Democrat, Jamaica Plain
Few incoming first-year lawmakers have attracted as much
attention as Nika Elugardo, an
outspoken progressive who
t o p p l e d H o u s e Wa y s a n d
Means chairman Jeffrey Sánchez, a close ally of the powerful speaker of the House, in the
September primary to represent the 15th Suffolk District.
But Elugardo, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology
graduate with advanced degrees from Harvard University
and Boston University to boot,
doesn’t want anyone thinking
she’s trying to make this all
about herself. “The first thing
for me is, it’s never ‘I,’ ” Elugar-
do said when
asked what she
hopes to accomplish. “It’s
always we.”
The lawyer
and former
State House
aide promised
in her campaign to be a Nika
more aggres- Elugardo
sive champion
of the progressive positions —
particularly on immigration
and climate — on behalf of the
district, which includes Jamaica Plain, Mission Hill, Roslindale, and parts of Brookline.
She and her supporters argued
that Sánchez was more concerned with party leadership
than with his constituents.
Elugardo has already attracted headlines for provocative comments, including saying that “the Democratic Party
is straight-up racist,” and that
the state House operates under
a plantation model. Elugardo
said her comments in both cases were meant to describe
structural problems in both institutions, not criticize individuals.
“As leaders, we have to make
that effort to understand how
institutions, even when individual leaders are good, wellmeaning people, perpetuate
some harmful elements of the
status quo,” she told The Boston Globe.

crash, fire
2nd person critical
after gas line hit
By Travis Andersen
Nathan Carman, the Vermont man at the center of separate probes into the murder of
his wealthy grandfather and
disappearance of his mother,
tossed his rifle into the ocean
after the fatal shooting of his
grandpa in 2013, an insurer alleged in a recent court filing.
The document, filed Friday
in federal court in Rhode Island, was submitted by the National Liability & Fire Insurance
Company and Boat Owners Association of the United States.
The parties are suing Carman,
24, in an effort to quash his
$85,000 insurance claim on his
sunken vessel.
Regarding the alleged murder weapon in the December
2 0 1 3 s l a y i n g o f C a r m a n’s
grandfather, John Chakalos at
his home in Windsor, Conn.,
the filing said Carman “and the
Sig Sauer [rifle] were criminally
involved in his grandfather’s
murder on the night of December 19/20, 2013. The Sig Sauer
rifle was capable of firing the
same caliber rounds which
killed his grandfather and Nathan Carman was the last
known person to see him alive.
In the morning Nathan Carman
went fishing on a head boat out
of Point Judith, R.I., jettisoning
his Sig Sauer rifle which now
lies at the bottom of the sea.”
The plaintiffs didn’t provide
specific details on the basis for
the allegation about the rifle
Carman’s lawyers didn’t immediately respond to a request
for comment on the filing. Law
enforcement officials have labeled Carman a person of interest in Chakalos’s murder, but he
hasn’t been charged and adamantly denies killing his grandfather.

to describe how the House currently prioritizes the interests
of the wealthy and powerful,
rather than serve all people
equally, she said. She was not
speaking about race, or suggesting that Speaker Robert A.
DeLeo is racist, she said.
“There are no mustachetwirling villains at the House of
Representatives,” she said, and
without conscious effort, it
would function the same way
regardless of who is in charge.
Elugardo, 45, also talked repeatedly about being excited to
forge coalitions with colleagues

Friends of the Boston Harbor Islands make 40th anniversary cruise
By Adam Vaccaro
The classic hallmarks of New

movie marathons, all-day pajamas.
Or, for some, a couple of uninterrupted hours to explore one of the
idyllic Boston Harbor Islands.
That’s been tradition for almost
four decades for the Friends of the
Boston Harbor Islands, an advocacy
and education nonprofit that focuses
on the 34 islands that dot the harbor.
On Tuesday, the group, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2019,

JANE LANGTON 1922­2018
Her whodunits captured character, history of N.E.
By Bryan Marquard
Some of Jane Langton’s mystery novel
titles left no doubt about the places and
writers she loved. Readers who thought
Nantucket wasn’t as sunny as it seems
could delve into “Dark Nantucket Noon.”
Those who called Concord home might
pick “The Transcendental Murder.”
She even believed that Henry David
Thoreau had given her own house in
Lincoln a shout-out in the opening of his
book “Walden,” which includes the passage: “I lived alone, in the woods, a mile
from any neighbor …”
“My house was Jacob Baker’s house in
Thoreau’s day, and it’s just a mile as the
crow flies from here to his cove on
Walden Pond,” she told the Globe in
2001. “Of course, Jonas Potter’s house
was also a mile away in the other direction, but I like to think Henry meant us.”
A story’s setting was a key decision
for Ms. Langton, who was 95 when she
died on Dec. 22 of complications from a
respiratory condition.
“I choose a place that’s just vibrating
with interest,” she said while discussing
where each of her plots took root,
whether it was in Concord’s dump or in
Emily Dickinson’s Amherst bedroom. A
gifted artist, Ms. Langton also illustrated
most of her books with pen-and-ink
“For me, the most fun is in making
drawings of the real places where my fictional events happen,” she said.
And her fictional events always
seemed to happen in significant places.
“ ‘The Transcendental Murder’ is a
hymn to Concord, its history, its houses,
its hallowed ground, its people and patriots, and its ghosts (Emerson and Thoreau),” Globe reviewer Andrew Coburn
wrote in 1975.
Her mystery “Dark Nantucket Noon,”
Coburn added, “is a lullaby to the island,
and an evil eye to greedy land-grabbers,
real estate agents, and a crass minority
of natives who would allow the splendor
to be spoiled.”
“A novel grows out of a sense of
place,” Ms. Langton told the Globe in
1995 as she sat in her kitchen. “A story
might have some pompous theme but,
really, its meaning must come from an
organic relationship with its setting.”
Ms. Langton also wrote children’s
books. “The Fledgling” was named a
Newbery Honor Book in 1981 and was
part of her “Hall Family Chronicles” series. She also has received a Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of
Ms. Langton often
illustrated her mysteries
and children’s books.

Time to take the plunge
When doctors
turn to verse
and rhyme
By John Hilliard
By Roy Greene
Dr. Rafael Campo describes poetry as a
form of primary care that can help heal both
patient and physician. Campo, who practices
and teaches at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical
Center and Harvard Medical School, was recently appointed editor of the Poetry and
Medicine section of the medical journal JAMA. He is the latest in a line connecting poetry to medicine. Here is a look at some other
notable poets who trained as doctors.
John Keats: The English Romantic poet
was apprenticed to his family’s London doctor
at age 14 then trained for six months at Guy’s
Hospital, where he was quickly promoted to
“dresser,” assisting surgeons during operations. He also was a qualified apothecary, the
forerunner of the pharmacist. In his poetry,
he suggests that scientific knowledge can so
demystify the natural world that it lessens its
allure. He writes in the poem “Lamia” (1820):
Do not all charms fly
At the mere touch of cold philosophy?
There was an awful rainbow once in heaven:
We know her woof, her texture; she is given
In the dull catalogue of common things.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr: The Cambridge
native practiced medicine and later became
dean of Harvard Medical School. In 1843,
Holmes famously publicized the connection
between infection and cleanliness, urging fellow surgeons to wash thoroughly, wear clean
clothes, and abstain from deliveries for 48
hours after coming into contact with a case of
puerperal, or postpartum, infection. His poem
“Old Ironsides” (1830) is credited with helping to save the Navy frigate USS Constitution
from being scapped.
O, better that her shattered hulk
Should sink beneath the wave;
Her thunders shook the mighty deep,
And there should be her grave.
William Carlos Williams: A New Jersey native and lifelong resident, Williams obtained a
medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania and did advanced study in pediatricts. He maintained a practice out of his
home — and delivered an estimated 3,000 babies — even as he became a strong voice in the
modernist movement of literature. In Williams’s 1917 poem “January Morning,” a physician makes an appearance.
The young doctor is dancing with happiness
in the sparkling wind, alone
at the prow of the ferry! He notices
the curdy barnacles and broken ice crusts
left at the slip’s base by the low tide
and thinks of summer and green
shell-crusted ledges among
the emerald eel-grass!

With temperatures in the mid50s, New Year’s Day in Boston felt
downright balmy. Especially since
the thermometer barely cracked zero a year ago.
Still, it was hardly a day to go for
a swim. Unless, of course, you
joined the L Street Brownies and
rang in 2019 with a dip into Dorchester Bay.
“This year’s pretty mild, last year
was the worst — and the best — because it was, what, 2 degrees?” said
Mark Poutenis, 48, of Lunenburg.
“This is like going to Virginia
Hundreds charged into the water by the Curley Community Center Tuesday just after 9 a.m., continuing a tradition that has
spanned more than a century.
“You start off with a bang first
thing in the morning,” said Dan
Monahan, regional operations
manager for Boston Centers for
Youth & Families, which runs the
center. “You get a clean slate every
year. It’s almost like going to confession. You jump in the water, it’s
confession, L Street Brownie style.”
Some wore funny hats and blew
party horns as they broke through
the start tape to plunge into water
estimated to be 45 to 50 degrees.
Many dressed in costume, including as bumble bees and swordswinging vikings.
Money raised from the plunge
helps fund local charities, including
an after-school sports program,
Monahan said.
People charged into Dorchester Bay Tuesday as they took part in the annual L Street Brownies New
Year’s Day swim.
The unusually mild weather
may have drawn out more firsttime plungers to take part in one of
the city’s oldest New Year’s traditions.
“I think that people might be
more willing to try it for the first
time because the weather is on
their side . . . of course, those of us
who swim all the time, the Brownies, call that a little bit of cheating,
but that’s OK,” Monahan said.

It is not known what caused the

The car is believed to have traveled about 15 feet into the first floor.
“We have reports that the vehicle
was traveling at a high rate of

Fall River police received 911
calls around 9:40 a.m. reporting the
crash that “ . . . appears to have set
off a fire at the apartment complex,”
the district attorney’s office said.
Fire crews arrived to find fire so
heavy they were at first unaware
that a vehicle had smashed into the
building, Lynch said. But they
quickly discovered two people inside the vehicle, and worked to free
them, Lynch said.

smoke alarms but no sprinklers. A
portion of the building’s roof collapsed. A firefighter stood atop a

Ariel Keeton, 21, traveled with

smoke detectors going off, and
quickly exited.
When they got outside, they saw
smoke, and then fire, from the area
where the car struck. “This is my

said her father had died in a fire.
A resident, who gave his name

Early accord on state tax revenue points to 2.7% growth
By Colin A. Young
State budget writers agreed
Monday to build their fiscal
year 2020 plans on the assumption that state tax revenues will
grow by 2.7 percent over the
current fiscal year.
Governor Charlie Baker’s
budget chief and leaders of the
House and Senate Ways and
Means committees detailed an
accord on how much tax revenue the state expects to collect
in fiscal 2020, which begins July 1. Officials also upgraded
their expectations for tax revenue in fiscal 2019, increasing
the total by $200 million, to
$28.5 billion.
The estimate of $29.3 billion
in tax revenue for fiscal 2020
amounts to $770 million more
than the updated projection for
the current fiscal year. The projected growth rate will serve as
the basis for Baker’s budget,
which is due Jan. 23, and budget-building exercises this
s pr i ng a n d s u m m er i n t h e
House and Senate.
Experts who offered financial forecasts at an annual hearing in December predicted revenue collections would grow 2
percent to 3.4 percent in fiscal
In announcing the agreedupon figure of 2.7 percent, budget officials used words like
“modest,” “more moderate,”
and “responsible” to describe a
forecast that represents a slowdown from the 3.5 percent revenue growth the officials had
agreed to for the current year.
Fiscal 2018 tax collections of
$27.787 billion surged 8.3 percent above fiscal 2017 collections, according to state records.
The slowdown in natural
revenue growth comes as lawmakers reevaluate plans for
major increases in education,
transportation, and health care
spending, and ways to pay for
those investments. Legislative
leaders have not ruled out tax
increases in the new year, and
any proposals to raise taxes
would be considered as part of
the annual budget debate in the
first half of 2019.
“The FY20 forecast reflects
modest growth in the Commonwealth’s economy, consistent
with testimony we have heard
from economic experts,” Administration and Finance Secretary Michael Heffernan said
in a statement . “Reaching
agreement on a consensus revenue forecast is a critical first
step in developing a fiscally responsible budget for FY20.”
Senator Joan Lovely, who
serves as vice chair of the Senate Ways and Means Committee
but has led the panel since
chairwoman Karen Spilka became Senate president, said the
2.7 percent growth estimate
will be enough to invest in programs and to stash money away
in the stabilization fund.
The House Ways and Means
chairman, Jeffrey Sanchez, who
is leaving the Legislature after
losing his November reelection
bid, said the agreement leaves
the state in good fiscal hands.
“Through engaging econo-
mists and other fiscal experts,
we’ve come to a responsible
FY20 consensus revenue agreement that sets the stage for the
next budget process,” he said.
The 2.7 percent growth figure, the budget managers said,
assumes the state income tax
rate will drop from 5.05 percent
to 5 percent on Jan. 1, 2020.
Baker ’s office recently announced that all of the necessary economic triggers had
been hit and that the income
tax will fall from 5.1 percent to
5.05 percent on New Year’s Day
2019. The reduction will have a
$175 million impact over a full
fiscal year.
Heffernan, Sanchez, and
Lovely also agreed Monday on a
transfer of $1.077 billion to the
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, a $917 million
transfer to the Massachusetts
School Building Authority, and
$25 million to the Workforce
Training Fund.
There will also be a $2.841
billion transfer to the state pension fund — an increase of $233

ginning stages, the three
branches decided to set aside
the marijuana forecast so that
the Administration, House, and
Senate can make independent
decisions on marijuana revenue
for FY20 based on available information as each goes to print
their budget proposals,” the administration wrote in a press
release Monday.
The Department of Revenue
is still forecasting that Massachusetts will take in $44 million
to $82 million in marijuana taxes this fiscal year and could
bring in as much as $172 million in fiscal year 2020, Revenue Commissioner Christopher
Harding told lawmakers in early December.
Also Monday, Heffernan,
Sanchez, and Lovely agreed to a
3.6 percent rate of potential

The trip has been canceled
due to weather a handful of
times, most recently in 2018,
when Boston temperatures
topped out at 17 degrees. That
was far less of a concern Tuesday, with the thermometer
hovering north of 50 degrees
most of the day.
“It’s a perfect day, and when
we saw the weather, we were
like, ‘yeah, that’s it, we’re going,’ ” said Versa Belton, a Haverhill resident, who made her
first harbor island voyage with
her two teenaged sons, Josh
and Jordan. “Usually we’d just
be visiting friends or lying

mother and sister for what has
become a family tradition that
she looks forward to when she
comes home to Dorchester
from Ohio for the holidays. On
Tuesday, the family sat together on a stone structure at the island’s southwestern edge with
a breathtaking view of Boston’s
skyline. In at least five trips to
Thompson together, they said,
they had never found this area.
Jim Cullinane, a Nashua
resident who travels to the various harbor islands at least a
half-dozen times a year, said
the Jan. 1 hike is appealing —
not because it’s the start of a
new year, but because there are
precious few offseason opportunities to get to the island,
which is typically only open to
the public on weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
“As long as these boats are
running, I’d come out to this island,” he said.
The plaintiffs in the Rhode
Island lawsuit allege that Carman killed Chakalos and then
intentionally sank his boat in
September 2016 when he and
his mother, Linda, were on
board. Carman was later rescued but his mother hasn’ t
been found.
With Linda Carman’s presumed death, her share of
Chakalos’s $44 million estate
would go to Nathan, her only
child. Nathan Carman has said
the sinking of the boat was accidental, but plaintiffs in the
Rhode Island lawsuit maintain
he made suspicious alterations
to the vessel before setting out
on a fishing trip with Linda.
“Defendant Nathan Carman
executed a common scheme
with striking, chilling, parallel
losses of evidence, omissions,
concealments, misrepresentations, false testimony, and fraud
to procure a substantial inheritance by causing first his grandfather’s murder and second his
mother’s death at sea through

Nathan Carman intentionally,

leaving port in an effort to
claim its $85,000 hull insurance proceeds,” the filing said.
The document also said that
after Chakalos’s murder, Carman gained “unrestricted access” to roughly $587,000.
“Nathan Carman’s false testimony precluded Plaintiffs’
and others’ efforts to recover
the sunken boat and their ability to inspect it and the unseaworthy alterations he made to it

The next hearing in the civil
case in US District Court in
Providence is set for Jan. 29.
The hearing will deal in part
with a woman identified by
Carman’s lawyers as “Mistress
Y,” who had an alleged sex-forcash arrangement with the 87year-old Chakalos shortly before his death.
Carman’s attorneys have
said in court papers that the
woman, 25 at the time of the alleged tryst, and her drug-addled boyfriend may have been
responsible for Chakalos’s murder. In addition to the Rhode Island suit, Carman also faces civil litigation in New Hampshire
brought by his aunts, who are
seeking to block him from collecting any funds from Chakalos’s estate.

member of our community can

safe, welcoming, respectful,
and inclusive,” Hanlon said in a
recent e-mail to the Dartmouth
The sexual misconduct case
has dogged the college for more
than a year and a half and is
likely to remain on the front

League school in Hanover,
N.H., celebrates its 250th anniversary with commemorative
events and a fund-raising push.
On social media and in private
conversations, alumni have expressed frustration and threatened to withhold donations
over the handling of the case.
The New Hampshire attorney general’s office is conducting a criminal probe into the
sexual misconduct allegations.
According to the lawsuit,
filed in November, three former
neuroscience professors groped
female students in plain sight,
hosted drinking and hot-tub
parties with students, openly
debated who had the “hottest
lab,” and allegedly sexually assaulted students they were supposed to be training.
“These professors leered at,
groped, sexted, intoxicated,
and even raped female students,” the plaintiffs, who are
seeking $70 million in damages, allege.
The professors, Todd Heatherton, Paul Whalen, and William Kelley, were influential in
Dartmouth’s brain science department for two decades and
exercised tremendous control
over their students’ academic
careers — delaying exams,
withholding advisory meetings,
and threatening the research
and funding of women who
shunned their advances, according to the lawsuit.
All three professors left
Dartmouth last year after the
college conducted a monthslong investigation. Heatherton
retired; Whalen and Kelley resigned.
Heatherton has said that he
acted “unprofessionally while
intoxicated” at several public
events and has apologized for
his behavior. Whalen and Kelley have not responded to re-
quests for comment.
The students allege that administrators should have done
more to police faculty behavior
and had received previous sexual harassment complaints
against two of the three professors.
And administrators in the
psychology and brain sciences
department had previously
heard from students that they
felt pressured to drink and socialize with the professors and
had observed them “blurring
professional boundaries,” according to the lawsuit.
Dartmouth plans to file its
response to the allegations in
mid-January, according to college officials. But Hanlon has
stressed in e-mails to the Dartmouth community that the college took unprecedented steps
after its own investigation and
was prepared to revoke tenure
from the three professors.
Dartmouth officials declined to comment on specific
changes the college plans to
make regarding sexual misconduct, but a committee has been
working on recommendations
for more than a year.
“Dartmouth’s senior leaders
join me in making a commitment to take the steps necessary to succeed and lead in this
vital endeavor,” Hanlon said in
his recent message.
Dartmouth administrators
have made such commitments
before, said Steve Kelly, the attorney for the seven women suing the college.
“Meaningful change will require Dartmouth to truly listen
to victims of harassment, to acknowledge and accept full responsibility for their injuries,
and to work with victims, experts, and the Dartmouth community to engage in a true cultural shift,” Kelly said.
The college should be frank
about what happened in the
case and how such behavior
continued for years, said Jennifer Groh, a former Dartmouth
professor who now teaches at
Duke University and was one of
at least 27 people who participated in the college’s sexual harassment investigation.
Groh said there must be a
way to share the findings while
protecting the identities of victims wh o don’ t want to be
named. Dartmouth did not inform students or faculty when
the professors were abruptly removed from campus in 2017,
and details of the allegations remained a mystery until the November lawsuit.
The college should also create an independent oversight
group to review academic deci-
sions involving any students
who may have complained or
been affected by the three professors, to guard against retaliation, Groh said.
The lawsuit names several
senior members of the psychology department who allegedly
did little to curtail the misconduct, Groh said.
“The ‘just trust us, we’re
handling it’ isn’t holding water,” Groh said. “I think everybody needs to see what’s going
Alumni and current and former faculty also say that Dartmouth needs to take a closer
look at how it rewards faculty
and whether decisions to grant
tenure are fair.
Despite complaints about
groping involving Heatherton
more than a decade ago, he was
promoted and received a prestigious award. Heatherton has
said that the college investigated that incident and determined the touch was accidental
and not sexual.
During the time of some of
the alleged misconduct, Dartmouth’s brain sciences department had only three tenured female professors and at least 11
tenured male professors. The
lack of senior female faculty
made it difficult to speak out
about the behavior, some of the
students who have filed the
lawsuit said.
Dartmouth officials have
pointed out that men and women who qualified for tenure
have been offered it at a similar
rate. Over the years, some female faculty left Dartmouth after receiving tenure, while several junior female professors
departed before their tenure
decisions came up for review.
Dartmouth is also working
on some of the changes proposed by alumni and other
For example, about $17 million of its current $3 billion
fund-raising campaign is earmarked for expanding mental
health services, according to

American Association of University Professors and alumni
said they will keep watch to ensure that Dartmouth makes
meaningful changes to its culture and practices.

Yes, before beating 35-year
incumbent Representative Byron Rushing in September’s

legislator takes more than
what “Schoolhouse Rock” cartoons would lead you to believe.
“It’s a complicated ecosystem of interests,” Santiago said.
“It requires a lot of work, a lot
of consensus building. It was
all very fascinating to me.”
Now Santiago, 36, is diving
back in as the Ninth Suffolk
District’s incoming representative. The district, he said, is
“ground zero” for the state’s
opioid epidemic and its deadly
fallout, which literally spills into Santiago’s day job at BMC.

Republican, Abington
Door-knocking in Whitman

who sat in her

was killed by a drunk driver,

“People remember, even if
it’s for a small thing,” said Alyson Sullivan. The woman, she
said, “couldn’t wait to tell her
mom” that she met the daughter of the prosecutor they so
fondly remember. “It’s those
impacts that my father had,
that I hope one day I’ll have,”
said Sullivan, an Abington Republican.
It’s part of what drove Sullivan, 30, to run. Her father once
held the same seat before serving as district attorney, then the
US attorney for Massachusetts,
and running for US Senate.
This year, he led fund-raising
efforts for his daughter, currently a student at New England Law, as she sought the seat
held by fellow Republican Geoff
Diehl’s decision to not seek
reelection and mount an unsuccessful challenge to Senator
Elizabeth Warren opened a
path for Sullivan, who ran on
lowering taxes, advocating for
infrastructure funds, and fighting the opioid crisis.
She is one of just three newly elected GOP lawmakers in
the Legislature, and the only
woman Republican entering
her first term. Given her father’s experience, serving in the
public arena is a path for which
she’s long prepared. “It’s something I’ve thought about my

There were some steps in
between, but long story short,
the 32-year-old Nguyen decided to challenge Lyons. Residents of the 18th Essex District
deserved a representative more
accessible to them, she said.
Tram drew support from reproductive rights organizations
and other liberal activists eager
to defeat Lyons, one of the most
conservative lawmakers in the
Legislature and champion of
causes such as eliminating state
funding for abortion and overturning transgender protections.
She won endorsements from

America. Her popular series of
mysteries featuring the sleuth
Homer Kelly, a Harvard University professor, included “Emily
Dickinson Is Dead,” a nominee
for a Mystery Writers Edgar
“Jane has an interesting audience for a mystery writer,”
Kate Mattes, who formerly ran
the much-loved and now-closed
Kate’s Mystery Books in Cambridge, told the Globe in 1995.
“Large numbers of her audience do not consider themselves mystery readers, but enjoy her because they want to
learn something from their
reading,” Mattes said. “If you’re
really looking to experience a
place and ponder the uniqueness of it, then Jane Langton is
the person to read.”
The second of three children, Jane Gillson was born in
1922 and spent her early years
in Belmont, until her family
moved to Holly Oak, Del., when
her father, Joseph Lincoln Gillson, went to work as a geologist
for DuPont Co.
Though Ms. Langton grew
up during the Great Depression, she recalled in a Globe interview, her mother, Grace
Brown, “was thrifty,” and as a
result “we didn’t feel constricted.”
“I loved to draw and thought
possibly I would be an illustrator when I grew up,” she said in
the 1995 interview. Then a biography of Marie Curie prompted her to pursue science.
Ms. Langton started out at
Wellesley College and transferred to the University of
Michigan at the urging of her
parents, who worried that she
wouldn’t meet enough men at a
women’s school, said her son
Ms. Langton, who grew up in Belmont, long lived in a house
in Lincoln.

At Michigan, she initially
studied astronomy and graduated with a bachelor’s degree.
She also met William Langton
when they were lab partners in

He was a scientist and political activist who helped design
optical equipment, worked on
alternative energy sources, and
finished his career at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center. Mr. Langton was
81 when he died in 1997.
Ms. Langton graduated with
two master’s degrees in art history — the first from Michigan
and the second from Radcliffe
College, after she and her husband had moved to Massachusetts. In addition, she studied at
the Museum School in the late
Her writing career was inspired in part by raising her
three sons. “I read the most
wonderful books to my children, and I thought I would
love to write and illustrate one,”
she said in 1995.
Ms. Langton’s illustrated her
first book, “ The Majesty of
Grace,” which drew from her
own life during the Great De-
pression and was published in
Early on, she began switching back and forth between her
Hall Family series for young
readers and her Homer Kelly
mysteries. Ms. Langton published more than 30 books in
“She just kept at it,” David
said. “She was typing, typing,
typing — all the time.”
Ms. Langton also did extensive research for her books —
writing “ The Dante Game”
prompted her to learn Italian.
“I think she wrote in order to allow herself to continue studying,” David said. “She loved to
dive into a subject and know all
about it and become an expert.”
He added that his mother
“was fun to talk to because she
knew so much. She would remember something from some
book she’d read years ago, and
she had a quote she had memorized. That happened all the
time. She was always putting
little gems into our conversations.”
In her later decades, Ms.
Langton also made a point of
drawing attention to her age,
one interviewer noted 22 years
ago, when she was 73. “My idea
is, anyone can be young and
beautiful,” she said in 1997,
“but we can’t all be wrinkled
and creative.”
A service will be announced
for Ms. Langton, who in addition to David leaves her two
other sons, Christopher of Sausalito, Calif., and Andrew of
Venice, Calif.; two grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
Each of Ms. Langton’s books
went through several rewrites.
“By the third draft, there’s some
sensible shape,” she said in
2001. “By the fifth, I’m really
shining it up.”
Along with her published
works, Ms. Langton left behind
hundreds of notebooks she had
filled with her thoughts.
“She always wanted to be focusing down on something,
right in front of her, working,”
David said.
From those verbal sketches
emerged her many mysteries
and children’s books, some of
which had touches of magical
realism, such as a child who
could fly in the skies of Concord
and Lincoln.
And though Ms. Langton’s
books also featured far-away locales such as England and Italy,
she often returned in her writing to places close at hand, for
which research was as easy as a
casual conversation.
“I love the fact that there are
so many people to talk to and to
get to know,” she said in 1995.

Jürgen von Hollen had a lot on his
plate during a recent visit to Boston.
But gloating was not on the menu.
His company, Universal Robots,
had just seen its best-known rival for
factory robots, Boston-based Rethink
Robotics, shut its doors without warning, a shocking end for a promising
startup that had powerful backing.
But instead of taking a victory lap,
von Hollen had travelled to the Boston
area to meet about two dozen former
Rethink Robotics employees whom
Universal Robots had hired in the past
few weeks, and he had nothing but
nice things to say about his vanquished rival.
“One of the best competitors we ever had was Rethink,” said von Hollen,

NEW YORK — After an unexpectedly bad
year for the stock market, investors are looking for clues about what 2019 will bring.
The hope on Wall Street is that the underlying economy of the United States is sound,
that the recent selling will burn itself out, and
that stocks will resume their record-setting
But the risk is that the plunge, the worst
annual decline in a decade, could be the start
of something more sinister.
The forces that pushed the Standard &
Poor’s 500-stock index down 6.2 percent in
2018 are still in place. The economy is still doing well, but it does not appear to be as strong
as it once was. President Trump is lashing out
at the Federal Reserve, and the central bank’s
interest-rate increases pose a risk to corporate
profits and investors’ appetite for stocks.
America’s trade war with China continues,
and the technology giants that dominate the
stock market face heightened scrutiny about
their business practices.

but was acquired in 2015
by Teradyne Inc. of North
Andover. “We were both very,
very respectful of each other’s capabilities.”
Rethink and UR faced off in the
booming global market for collaborative robots, or “cobots,” small machines priced at $30,000 to $50,000
and made to do repetitive tasks inside
factories. Car companies use cobots to
assemble engines; in medical labs they
handle and sort blood samples; in
metalworking shops, UR cobots can
lift, stack, and even
visually inspect parts using attached high-resolution
Cobots are designed with safety
features to prevent them from injuring nearby humans on the production
line, so they can be deployed right
next to people. Also, cobots are easy to
program, even by factory workers
with no formal computer training.
UR was born in 2005, and has sold
about 27,000 cobots so far. That’s
about half the global market, according to the research firm Interact Analysis,
Rethink was founded in 2008, with
$150 million in funding from General
Electric’s GE Ventures, investment
bank Goldman Sachs, and founder Jeff Bezos, among
others. Its cofounder, Rodney Brooks,
is a robot-industry superstar. The former professor at the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology had already
cofounded iRobot, a maker of autoROBOTS, Page B6
Sawyer is a single-arm, highperformance cobot from the nowdefunct Rethink.
As investors try to gauge the seriousness of
these risks, stocks could lurch in different directions at each new event. A meeting of the
Fed later this month, an earnings report in
February, or a trade-negotiation deadline in
March could all prove to be catalysts for a big
rise or fall.
But Wall Street’s top stock-pickers are still
expecting gains this year, even if they’re not
quite as boisterous in their predictions as they
once were.
“It could get more frightening before it gets
better,” said James Paulsen, chief investment
strategist at the research firm Leuthold
Group. “But I think we survive for another
Last year was a reminder of how unpredictable stock markets can be. In January, with
corporate tax cuts in place, the outlook for the
US market was great. And stocks did hit a record high in September, with Apple and Amazon becoming the first publicly traded American companies to be valued at more than $1
trillion. But 2018 was also turbulent, with
markets falling sharply in February and again
at the end of the year.
The S&P 500 narrowly avoided one grim
milestone: a 20 percent drop from its high, a
decline that would signal the start of a bear
The index ended 2018 down 14.5 percent
from its high point, and a bear market could
yet be in store should stocks experience another decline similar to what they went through
in early December.
If that happens, the pessimism that has
hovered over the stock market could leach
into the rest of the economy, as companies
grow wary of taking risks, expanding, or adding more workers.
Here are the factors that will help determine whether that happens this year.

In 2016, US companies’ pursuit of bigger profits through higher prices transferred
three percentage points of national income from low-income and middle-class families
to the wealthy, according to a study that’s forthcoming in the Oxford Review of Economic Policy. It examined how growing corporate power in effect transfers resources
from low-income to high-income families. In the late 20th century, the share of US
households owning some form of stock rose dramatically, from 32 percent in 1989 to
52 percent in 2001, driven largely by a decline in defined-benefit pension plans and the
rise of 401(k) retirement accounts. The top 20 percent of households own nearly 90
percent of the country’s total equity, according to the study. But those households account for a just under 40 percent of consumer spending. From the perspective of the
poor and the middle class, the bottom 80 percent own just 10 percent of equity but
spend 60 percent of the money. On net, that means it’s nearly impossible for a typical
family to make up for higher prices via its stock portfolio; when prices rise, low- and
middle-class families pay more but wealthy families profit. — WASHINGTON POST
After years of historic highs, the Dow Jones industrial average had its worst week in
nearly a decade in December. ‘‘To see the Dow drop four hundred points and then drop
another four hundred points, and then spike and then go down again — this feels timely in a way we could not have planned,’’ said David Caspe, cocreator of the TV series
‘‘Black Monday,’’ which premieres on Showtime Jan. 20. The series examines what happens when an ever-steeper climb of the financial markets is followed by a resounding
crash. The half-hour dramedy centers on a boutique investment firm in 1986 run by
Don Cheadle’s Maurice, a fast-talker who doesn’t like that his company is ‘‘11th-biggest’’ on the Street. His plan for fixing it comes via Andrew Rannells’s Blair, an eager
business-school graduate with an algorithm he thinks can beat the market — though
Maurice has a different use in mind for him. The impression is that of a banking community oblivious to the pain it will soon face. And that, principals say, could make it as
fresh now as that October 1987 day it’s building up to. — WASHINGTON POST

Borrowing costs could hurt
As the partial government shutdown continues, the lack of data from the Department
of Agriculture is sending market participants to Twitter and other sources for crop information. Most key reports, including figures on export sales, have stopped since the
shutdown began Dec. 22. The dearth of information has sent investors to the sidelines,
said Steve Georgy, president of the agriculture broker and adviser Allendale Inc. in
McHenry, Ill. In the new year, however, traders are going to turn to the media and

Baxter resembled a human

“Single arms are much easier to adapt, more scaleable,”
Santagate said.
Rethink responded in 2015
with Sawyer, a $29,000 singlearmed robot similar to those
made by UR. With a longer,
faster-moving arm, the company predicted Sawyer would be
popular for a variety of industrial applications, such as welding and circuit board assembly.

but mature industry. Chief executive Mark Jagiela, who took
the helm in 2014, was looking
to enter a fast-growing business. He settled on robotics,
and almost made a bid to buy
Rethink, until he learned about
the springs issue.
“The mechanical design of it
was basically flawed, and they
could never get around that,”
said Jagiela, who “decided their
product wasn’t really a good industry product.”
Instead, Teradyne acquired
UR for $285 million in 2015.
The Danish company was already turning a profit, but it
now had an affluent parent
with ample resources.
UR has made the most of it.
Its sales grew 60 percent in
2016 and 72 percent in 2017;
its employee count over that
time grew to 650, from 150.
While UR has sold robots to
industrial giants like carmaker
Nissan, its primary target is
small and medium-size companies. “Probably 80 percent of
our target market has never
even heard of a collaborative
robot, or has ever thought
about automation being his
thing,” said von Hollen.
All Axis Machining, a machine shop in Dallas, bought its
first UR robot 14 months ago.
Owner Gary Kuzmin was so impressed that a month later he
ordered a second machine for
laser-etching letters and numbers onto metal parts. Two
months after that, All Axis got a
third cobot, for sanding and
polishing parts, and has since
ordered even more.
“We got so good at integrating our own machine shop that
we created a new company, All
Axis Robotics,” Kuzmin said.
“We sell these products now to
help automate other machine
All Axis is now par t of a

for Universal. And UR has cre-
ated a rich ecosystem of compatible accessories, such as
grippers, conveyors, suction devices, and video cameras, as
well as specialized software for
different industrial applications. This boosts the odds a
potential customer will find a
solution that has a UR robot at
the heart of it.
According to Interact Analysis, UR accounts for about half
the global market for cobots,
which is expected to reach
$600 million this year. And
while 2027 is a long way off, Interact expects cobot sales to hit
$7.5 billion that year.
Indeed, von Hollen said the
cobot market is growing so rapidly that there was plenty of
room for UR and Rethink to coexist. “Very, very seldom have
we actually competed head to
head with Rethink,” said von
Hollen, “because the market is
that big.”
For now, Universal is the
leading provider of cobots,
while Rethink’s technology was
sold off to Hahn Group, a German industrial automation
comp any. Meanwhi le, impressed by UR’s success, the top
makers of big industrial robots,
such as ABB and Fanuc, have
entered the cobot market. And
cheaper versions from Chinese
manufacturers are on the way.
Not to worr y, said IDC ’s
John Santagate. “UR’s been doing it so long,” he said. “They’ve
got a brand that has a lot of
power in the market. I think
that they’re fine.”

Rising interest rates, and expectations about where those
rates are headed, may have
weighed on stock prices more
than anything else in 2018.
With the US economy humming, the Fed increased its target rate four times in 2018,
pushing up borrowing costs
across the economy. The yield
on the 10-year Treasury note,
which is the basis for debt like
home mortgages and corporate
loans, climbed to its highest level since 2011 before falling
back. When borrowing costs
rise too much, they can be restrictive. Companies and consumers pull back, and the economy suffers.
In the worst case, a recession could occur.
Stocks tumbled as investors
became increasingly concerned
that the Fed, under a new chairman, Jerome H. Powell, would
raise interest rates too far and
send a chill through the US
Only more data on the state
of the economy will ease the
concerns about growth. If investors see the economy growing steadily, jitters over the
Fed’s intentions and the recession fears that gripped stocks
could fade.
Trump is a factor
Heading into 2018, in the
days after Trump’s tax cuts were
enacted, investors were mostly
buoyant about his presidency
and tolerant of his unpredictable declarations on Twitter.
That bullishness persisted
even after it became clear that
Trump was serious about imposing restrictions on trading
partners as a way of gaining
concessions from them. But as
the trade war continued, unresolved tensions with China
started to become a concern,
and Trump’s proclamations
s t a r t e d t o m a ke i nv e s t o r s
When Trump referred to
himself on Twitter as “Tariff
Man,” the message helped spur
a drop of more than 3 percent
in the S&P 500.
It wasn’ t just the tweets
about China that began to bother investors. Trump also roiled
the markets with criticism of
the Fed, which he blamed for
the stock market turmoil.
This is a change for the market. When the investment bank
RBC Capital Markets surveyed
big investors in December
about what kept them up at
night, Trump topped the list.
(Interest rates and the trade
war ranked second and third.)
When it comes to Trump, investors have a lot to consider.
They will have to weigh whether a partial government shutdown will dampen the economy; what a House of Representatives controlled by Democrats
or staff turnover at the White
House could mean; and what
might happen if the United
States and China can’t reach a
trade deal by a March 2 deadline.
Global growth has slowed
The trade war’s most evident impact so far has been in
large overseas economies,
which appear to be taking a
turn for the worse.
China, Japan, and the European Union showed signs of
slowing down late in 2018, and
reliable indicators of global
growth like the price of oil and
copper are flashing warnings.
Growth may accelerate if
trade agreements are forged in
2019. But the problems could
be deeper. China’s methods for
pulling its economy out of a rut
probably are not as effective as
they once were. And the battle
between Italy’s populist government and the European Union
over the country’s spending
plans may heat up again.
T he European economy
could also be hit hard if Britain
crashes out of the European
Union without an agreement
that keeps trade flowing freely.
That could be avoided if Parliament approves a withdrawal
deal Prime Minister Theresa
May has struck with the union.
But that is no sure thing.
May, lacking the necessary support, was forced to delay a vote
originally set for last month until mid-January.
Tech stocks face challenges
The market’s fate also depends on whether investors fall
back in love with large technology companies. Last year, companies like Facebook, Apple,
Amazon, and Netflix helped
push key stock benchmarks like
the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite to records, and then
dragged those indexes down
when the companies went into
The tech giants’ shares
plunged in part because they
were deemed to be too expensive. Put another way, investors
went from being optimistic that
the companies’ future earnings
would be terrific, to worried
that they wouldn’t.
Some of the large tech firms
also face substantial problems
in their own operations that
could take time to resolve. Apple, for example, counts on China as both a market where it
sells iPhones and a manufacturing hub.
Some analysts say that large
tech companies are now in a
position similar to what big
banks confronted after the financial crisis of 2008.
“The tech companies are a
heck of a lot better run than the
financial companies were in
2007,” said Savita Subramanian, at Bank of America Merrill
Lynch, “but their incentives
may not be aligned with the
best interests of employees and

grow at a strong enough pace to
deliver the earnings that investors are hoping for. But if the
economy grows quickly, investors may return to worrying
about higher interest rates.
If the Fed can tread a delicate middle ground, the trade
war winds down, and the economies of Europe and China stabilize, a recovery in stock prices
could hold.
“I am not sure the upside for
t h e m a r ke t i s h i g h e r t h a n
where we’ve already been,”
Paulsen said, “but 2019 could
still be a good year.”

Against four spades, West led the king of diamonds.
When East signaled with the four, West shifted to a trump.
South took the A-K, then led the A-K and a third club. East
won and led a diamond, and West took the jack and ace for

This is a textbook deal. How should South play?
South can win West’s trump shift with the ace and lead
his seven to dummy’s jack. He next leads the king of hearts
and discards a club: a loser on a loser.
If West takes the ace and errs by leading another heart,
South ruffs, cashes the K-A of clubs and ruffs a club. He can

Delaney’s new son born months
after loss of 2­year­old Henry
Rob Delaney, the star of “Catastrophe” and a Marblehead native, welcomed a new baby with wife, Leah, in
August, just seven months after their
son Henry’s death.
“We likely would’ve had a fourth
anyway. But I mean, there’s mixed
feelings. It’s sort of like they
touch each other a little bit,
but they almost exist in separate lanes,” Delaney said
in an interview with The
Sunday Times Magazine.
“Having another child in
no way, shape or form eases
the grief of Henry dying.”
When Delaney and his wife realized they were pregnant, Henry was
the first person they told. While their
newest addition, a baby boy, brings a
huge smile to Delaney’s face, he says
he’s still struggling to overcome paranoia about his children’s health. Henry
died after a battle with brain cancer.
“[I’m] terrified of anyone vomiting,” Delaney told The Times. “It’s like
PTSD. If anyone vomits, I think, ‘Oh,
that must be a brain tumour,’ and I
have to calm down.”
The day after Christmas, Delaney
took to Twitter to share some thought
about his family’s first holiday without
“Our first Christmas without Henry
came & went,” Delaney tweeted. “The
day itself was okay, maybe because there were so many
horrible, painful days leading up to it; we must have
hit our quota or something. We talked about
him a lot & included his
memory throughout the
Though Henry never had a
chance to meet his younger brother,
Delaney pointed out that they share
the same loving devotion from their
“But also having Henry dying
doesn’t make our new son any less
magical,” Delaney told The Times. “I
want to gobble him up and he deserves our full attention and love, and
he grew in the same womb as Henry.”
Tom Wopat’s handlers say he’d ‘love’
to play King George in ‘Hamilton’
Representatives for Tom Wopat,
the “Dukes of Hazzard” star who last
summer admitted to accosting female
cast members during rehearsals for a
Waltham musical, said Friday that
he’d relish the chance to appear in
“Hamilton,” the show boasting high
praise from critics and equally high
ticket prices.
“Tom would love to play King
George in Hamilton!,” said a message
posted to Wopat’s official Twitter feed.
The posting came after a prior
tweet asked Wopat’s 14,200 followers:
“What current broadway musical
would Tom love to be a part of?”
Wopat, 67, has gradually reentered
the spotlight following his guilty plea
last July in Waltham District Court to
two counts of annoying and accosting
a person of the opposite sex, stemming from incidents during rehearsals
for a 2017 Reagle Music Theatre production of “42nd Street.” He was sentenced to a year of probation. He also
had to bow out of the production following his arrest.
The actor, who also records music,
recently launched a concert tour and
played Dave’s Beach Cafe in Manhattan on Dec. 20. He’s scheduled to play
two shows at Cooter’s in Music City in
Nashville on Jan. 26 and 27.
For a while, though, Wopat was under a legal cloud in Massachusetts.
He was arraigned in August 2017
on charges of indecent assault and
battery on a person over 14 and cocaine possession, after allegedly grabbing an adult female cast member’s
buttocks during a rehearsal. Police recovered cocaine from Wopat’s 1996
Ford Bronco at the time of his arrest.
Wopat initially pleaded not guilty,
and his publicist later issued a statement saying the actor “firmly” denied
the groping allegation and was taking
time to address “his ongoing struggle
with substance abuse.”
Then authorities brought additional charges of indecent assault and battery on a person over the age of 14 and
two counts of accosting or annoying a
person of the opposite sex, this time
for allegedly targeting a 16-year-old
Wopat at one point told the girl
during rehearsal that “I’m a creepy old
man” and also allegedly poked her
stomach and hit her buttocks with his
script, telling her, “Nice butt,” a police
report said.
Days after his guilty plea, Wopat
took to social media to insist that
while he would’ve been cleared at trial, his plea deal was “the way to close
this case.”
“Hamilton,” meanwhile, continues
to play to breathless, sellout crowds on
Broadway and regional theaters
The actor currently playing King
George in New York is significantly
younger than Wopat.
Euan Morton, the 41-year-old
Scotsman playing the monarch on
Broadway, recently completed a tour
of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and
collaborated previously with playwright Tony Kushner and late children’s book author Maurice Sendak
on the musical “Brundibar,” according
to a bio on the Hamilton website.
Wopat also has theatrical credits on
his CV, in addition to his iconic work
on the small screen.
He earned a permanent place in
the annals of television history with
his star turn as Luke Duke in the longrunning “Dukes of Hazzard” show and
received Tony nominations for roles in
“Annie Get Your Gun” in 1999 and
“Catered Affair” in 2008.
New Kids on the Block Donnie Wahlberg, Jonathan
Knight, Jordan Knight, Danny Wood, and Joey McIntyre splashed
up puddles Monday while performing in rainy Times Square.
Boston band helps ring in new year in Times Square
NEW YORK — Rain drops fell
along with confetti as revelers rang
in 2019 in Times Square, capping a
soggy New Year’s Eve celebration
that included Bebe Rexha’s stirring
rendition of John Lennon’s ‘‘Imagine’’ just before midnight.
Crews used squeegees to remove
water from the stages, but New Kids
on the Block still splashed up puddles while performing their hit ‘‘Step
by Step’’ on a giant set of steps.
At midnight, fireworks erupted
over Times Square, couples kissed,
families hugged, and ‘‘Auld Lang
Syne’’ played over loud speakers.
‘‘It was so awesome, it’s a oncein-a-lifetime experience,’’ said Col­
leen Giambrone, 55, of New Jersey.
‘‘Totally worth it, rain and all.’’
Some in the crowd kneeled on
the soaked ground, with ponchos
over their heads as puddles formed
and they waited for performers, including Christina Aguilera, Snoop
Dogg, Dan + Shay, and Bastille.
Veterans of the celebration said
the rain wasn’t all that bad, considering last year was one of the coldest
on record at 10 degrees. This year,
the temperature was about 47 degrees as midnight struck.
‘‘We’re troupers. We got this,’’
said Nyia Williamson, 41, a self-described New Kids on the ‘‘Block
Head’’ at the party for the 11th time.
The final countdown happened
as a geodesic sphere — 12 feet in diameter, covered with 2,688 Waterford crystal triangles and lit by
32,256 LEDs — dropped down a
pole. The numerals ‘‘2019’’ lit up at
midnight accompanied by pyrotechnics and the release of 3,000 pounds
of confetti.
FX secures rights to Globe’s Hernandez podcast, ‘Gladiator’
“Gladiator,” the podcast about Aaron Hernandez produced by Wondery and The Boston Globe’s Spotlight
Team, has been optioned by FX. The network now has
the rights to develop the material, which means “Gladiator” could follow in the footsteps of other truecrime podcasts that have been adapted for television.
Wondery and The Los Angeles Times’s
podcast “Dirty John,” based on journalist
Christopher Goffard’s reporting on con artist
John Meehan, is now a series on Bravo starring Connie Britton and Eric Bana. The Wondery podcast “Dr. Death,” about the crimes of
neurosurgeon Christopher Duntsch, is in development with Universal Cable Productions. Jessica Biel is
starring in and producing a show for Facebook based on
the true-crime-inspired fiction podcast “Limetown” by
Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie.
“Gladiator” has been downloaded close to 4.5 million
times, according to Wondery. This week, it’s at No. 2 on
Podtrac’s list of the top new podcasts of 2018, just behind “Dr. Death.” (The Podtrac rankings are “based on
average US downloads per episode across all listening
No word yet on FX’s plan for “Gladiator.”
The six-episode podcast, which debuted in
October and is hosted by the Globe’s Bob
Hohler, followed the downfall of Hernandez,
the former Patriots tight end who in 2015
was convicted of the murder of Odin Lloyd.
Hernandez died at UMass Memorial HospitalLeominster in April 2017 after he was found
hanging in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center. Hernandez’s family donated his brain to
Boston University for the research of chronic traumatic
encephalopathy, or CTE.
The podcast was released alongside a Spotlight Team
series on the subject.
Swedish fantasy ‘Border’ is both strange and beguiling
By Ty Burr
Eero Milonoff and Eva Melander
in “Border.”
One of 2018’s stranger and more
beguiling movies rings in 2019 at the
Museum of Fine Arts, starting
Wednesday. “Border” would seem to
fall under any number of categories: Is
it horror? Drama? Love story? Allegory? Maybe best to think of it as a chilly
Scandinavian bedtime tale, the type to
unsettle bothersome children and
leave them identifying with the ogre.
Certainly Eva Melander gives a
startling and sympathetic performance under a heavy load of facial
prosthetics as Tina, a customs inspector at a passenger ship terminal in a
busy Swedish port city. Tina isn’t just
homely in appearance. She seems one
step back or to the left on the human
evolutionary ladder — part Neanderthal perhaps — and she has gifts to
match: the ability to smell contraband
and guilt on disembarking passengers,
for one. Most people shrink from her;
through Melander’s watchful presence, we’re privileged to see past Tina’s
exterior to the compassionate, intelligent woman beneath.
Still, there are things the heroine of
“Border” doesn’t understand about
herself, meanings and emotions that
start burbling up from her subconscious when she encounters Vore (Eero Milonoff), a man who appears to be
from the same genetic offshoot as she.
Directed by Ali Abbasi. Written by
Abbasi and Isabella Eklöf, based
on a short story by John Ajvide
Londqvist. Starring Eva Melander,
Eero Milonoff, Ann Petrén.
At Museum of Fine Arts, Jan. 2­13,
various dates. 110 minutes. R (some
sexual content, graphic nudity, a
bloody violent image, and
language). In Swedish, with
Vore is a proud outcast, animalistic in
nature, but his self-possession and
hostility toward “normal” people stirs
something long dormant in Tina.
And here’s where I have to stop telling you what happens in “Border,” because the audience’s dawning realization of the facts of the matter is one of
the movie’s most enjoyable aspects. I
will say that they know how to ring realistic changes on folklore up in fjord
country, if this and “Trollhunter”
(2011) are any indication. Where
that movie was a marvelous deadpan
mockumentary, “Border” is a psychodrama that moves closer and closer to
the edge as Tina gets in touch with her
inner outlander. In particular, there’s a
sex scene that stretches one’s belief,
not to mention conventional notions
of anatomy.
Director-co-writer Ali Abbasi works
best when “Border” is operating in the
gray zone between ambiguity and
knowing too much, and as soon as the
movie becomes overtly literal it also
turns faintly ridiculous, while still deepening the chills, moral and otherwise. A
subplot in which Tina’s olfactory gifts
are used by a weary police investigator
(Ann Petrén) to sniff out a child pornography ring is intriguing, if haphazardly folded in to the main story.
The crucial scenes in “Border”
come just as the penny drops and we
understand why Tina is who she is
and why she has the job she does. Everything that ensues — and you may
not be able to shake the images and
events in this movie for quite some
time — is just water under that bridge.

Key play
in bowl
games is
the pass
Players send message
by skipping them
Bowl games have
become like buying
in bulk at Costco —
the volume is more
than you really need
or want to consume. Playing in a
college football
bowl game these
days is about as notable as having an
e-mail address.
There are 40 bowl games, not
counting the College Football Playoff
National Championship Game and
counting the Celebration Bowl,
which features historically black colleges and universities playing at the
Football Championship Subdivision
Salvation from this corporate
name game of gridiron gluttony
could be coming from the college
football labor force. This bowl season, nearly two dozen college players
with designs on being selected in the
2019 NFL Draft have skipped their
teams’ bowl games to preserve their
health for the NFL. If some of the
most talented players in college football believe that many of the bowl
games outside of the College Football
Playoff aren’t worth their time, then
why are they worth playing?
Bowl season came to an end on
New Year’s Day, but on a grand scale
it could be coming to an end as we
know it. Like newspapers and television, the bowl industry is experiencing transformative disruption. NFLbound players have realized these
superfluous games are more risk
than reward for them, a potential
pro stumbling block rather than a
college capstone. The players have
gotten wise to the workings of the
bowl industrial complex, which benefits bowl committee blazer-wearers,
coaches, and television programmers. Good for them.
This represents a course correction, not college football Armageddon.
I’m a college football devotee (it
says so on my Twitter profile), but

Advocacy group not alarmed
despite five black coaches fired
Ben Volin
Patriots defensive play-caller Brian Flores (center) has gotten requests
from five NFL teams to interview for head coaching jobs.
The aftermath of the NFL’s annual “Black
Monday” didn’t just leave eight of 32 teams
without a head coach.
It also significantly reduced the number of
minority head coaches across the league. Of the
eight head coaches from 2018 who were fired,
five were African-American — Hue Jackson,
Steve Wilks, Marvin Lewis, Vance Joseph, and
Todd Bowles.
In a league in which approximately 70 percent of the players are black, the NFL currently
has only three minority head coaches — the
Steelers’ Mike Tomlin, the Chargers’ Anthony
Lynn, and the Panthers’ Ron Rivera, who is Hispanic.
And the NFL also is down to just one minority general manager — Dolphins GM Chris Grier,
who earned a promotion on Monday to oversee
the team’s entire football operation. Raiders GM
Reggie McKenzie was fired last month, and Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome is retiring at the end
of the season.
Interestingly, the founder of the Fritz Pollard
Alliance, which advocates for diversity and
equality in NFL coaching and helped establish
the league’s Rooney Rule in 2003, doesn’t believe the system is broken. Cyrus Mehri believes
that the Rooney Rule is working well, and that
the NFL continues to make strides in hiring minority candidates. The rule requires teams to interview at least one member of a minority group
for its head coaching or general manager vacancies.

fashion statement
“It looked perfect,” Cassidy
Next men up
By Matt Porter
Speaking after the second
period, NHL commissioner
Gary Bettman announced the
next slate of big-time events.
Next season’s All-Star Game
will be in St. Louis. The Winter
Classic will be in Dallas (the
Stars will host an opponent to
be determined at Cotton Bowl
Stadium). At Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.,
the Avalanche will host a Stadium Series game (opponent also
TBA). The other outdoor game
for 2020 will be in Regina, Saskatchewan (Flames-Jets in the
Oct. 26 Heritage Classic).

events once renovations are

even I cringe at some of these
extraneous and meaningless
bowl games. What would we
do without the Dollar General
Bowl, the DXL Frisco Bowl, the
Cheez-It Bowl, the Academy
Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl,
or the Redbox Bowl? The bowl
herd cries out to be culled.
The bloated slate will get
winnowed when marquee
matchups don’t materialize
and the games become less
compelling from a television
inventory standpoint.
One of the best bowl games
should have been West Virginia vs. Syracuse in the Camping
World Bowl. The former Big
East rivals both entered the
game ranked in the top 11 in
scoring offense, averaging
more than 40 points per game.
One problem: West Virginia
star quarterback Will Grier,
starting offensive tackle Yodny
Cajuste, and leader in receiving yards Gary Jennings all decided to skip the game to preserve their health and their
draft stock. (Jennings had
played through a high ankle
sprain since October.) Syracuse
defeated a disarmed West Virginia squad, 34-18, in a game
that fizzled.
Even the brand-name bowls
that are part of the College
Football Playoff semifinal rotation are not immune from the
trend. Michigan was without
three of its top players — defensive tackle Rashan Gary,
linebacker Devin Bush, and
leading rusher Karan Higdon
— when it got stomped, 41-15,
by Florida Saturday in the
Peach Bowl.
The top two cornerback
prospects in the draft both sat
out their team’s New Year’s
Day bowl games. Louisiana
State’s Greedy Williams took a
pass on playing in the Fiesta
Bowl against the University of
Central Florida. Georgia’s Dea n d r e B a k e r, t h e T h o r p e
Award winner as the nation’s
top defensive back, eschewed
the Sugar Bowl against Texas.
The pearl-clutching crowd
will lament that these players
have betrayed their teams and
teammates by electing to boycott games for their own benefit. Don’t we send kids to college to learn to think for themselves and set themselves up
for professional careers?
To paraphrase Albert Einstein: Unthinking respect for
college football convention is
the greatest enemy of truth.
The calculus on skipping an
extraneous game is pretty easy
if you remove emotion and the
tug of loyalty.
The average guaranteed
money for a first-round pick in
last year’s draft was $15.7 million. In the second round, it
slipped to $3.55 million. In the
third round, it was $893,636.
So, if you suffer an injury in a
meaningless bowl game, you
could be costing yourself millions of dollars.
The cautionary tale for taking one for the team and playing in a bowl is Dallas Cowboys
linebacker Jaylon Smith. At
the end of the 2015 season, he
suffered a catastrophic left
knee injury, resulting in nerve
damage and a torn ACL, in the
Fiesta Bowl. A presumptive
top-five pick before the bowl
game, he dropped to the second round (No. 34 overall) of
the 2016 draft. Being there one
last time for his Notre Dame
teammates cost him almost
$19 million in guaranteed
money on his rookie contract.
It was the next season that
running backs Christian McCaffrey and Leonard Fournette, both eventual top-10
picks, decided to sit out their
teams’ bowl games, sparking
the current trend.
There has been the false cry
that players who skip bowl
games will be viewed negatively by NFL decision-makers or
that path portends a lack of
NFL success. This is a transparent attempt to shame players into not skipping bowls.
UCF defensive coordinator
Randy Shannon tried to peddle this flawed and self-serving
logic recently. (It’s not uncommon for college coaches and
their staffs to have bonuses in
their contracts for winning
bowl games.)
This season, McCaffrey set
the NFL record for receptions
by a running back (107) on a
team that missed the playoffs.
He has yet to miss a game in
his career. He finished third in
the NFL in yards from scrimmage, behind Saquon Barkley
and Ezekiel Elliott, both of
whom elected to end their college careers in bowl games.
There’s no correlation.
By the way, do these coaches feel the same way about
coaches that abandon their
teams for better opportunities?
In 2009, Brian Kelly informed
his players he was leaving Cincinnati to coach Notre Dame,
and that he would not coach
them in the Sugar Bowl. Manny Diaz was Temple’s coach for
30 seconds. Diaz was there just
long enough (18 days) to eat a
Philly cheesesteak and sign 17
recruits during the early signing period, then forsake them
for Miami on Sunday.
When coaches do what’s
best for them, it’s a smart career move; when players do it,
it’s blasphemy. Passion, pageantry, and hypocrisy are staples of college football.
College coaches should actually embrace players who
have made up their minds
about declaring for the NFL
Draft and choose to bypass
bowl games. With the additional prac tice time bowl
teams receive, it’s an opportunity for that coach to get a
head start on the following
season when he must replace
those players.
Rather than the swan song
for the current season, bowls
should be viewed as the first
game of next season. That
would represent a way to market them sans the studs safeguarding their draft stock.
Of course, the other solution is an expansion of the
playoff to six or eight teams, replacing crapulous bowl games
with some meaningful ones.
No player is skipping playoff
Since the advent of the playoff, there has been an uneasy
equilibrium between the preservation of the traditional
bowl system and the glorification of the modern method of
crowning a national champion. The current state of bowl
season and the spate of player
absences is a reflection of that
inherent incoherence in college football’s postseason.
Bowl season remains proof
that you can have too much of
a good thing. College football
should follow its players and
s tar t skipping a fe w bowl
games for its own good.

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The
Winter Classic was one for the
team scrapbook.
After a
NOTEBOOK 4-2 win over
their Original
Six foes, the Blackhawks, the
Bruins posed for one of the
most unique NHL team photos
ever captured.
Outside 88-year-old Notre
Dame Stadium, they wore
clothes that looked even older.
They had just changed out
of their 1930s-inspired alternate uniforms with the big
block-letter “B,” and stepped
into garb from 1920s England:
topcoats and three-piece suits,
flat caps and fedoras, and lots
of wool and tweed.
Patrice Bergeron, eye for
detail sharp and timing ever
perfect, wore a pocket watch
and added a newsboy hat,
which in his adopted hometown of Boston is called a scally cap. Zdeno Chara, looking
like the top henchman of Bill
the Butcher, wore a fedora and
long brown coat.
It was a coordinated effort,
born on Halloween when a
group of young Bruins players
dressed up like gangsters from
the BBC drama series “Peaky
Blinders,” about post-World
War I British mobsters. The
veterans got wind of it by the
end of the night, when many
fuzzy decisions are made, and
decided that this would be a
heck of a thing to do for the
Winter Classic.
They followed through on
it, though. Defenseman Torey
Krug enlisted the services of a
tailor, who helped outfit most
of the team. Every player arrived at work Tuesday looking
like proper gangsters.
Bruce Cassidy, who wore a
corduroy varsity jacket along
with the rest of his coaches,
had no pregame plans to wear
a fedora, as did former coach
Claude Julien in the 2010 Fenway Winter Classic. Cassidy
preferred to leave the sartorial
snazziness to his players.
But by puck drop, Cassidy
had borrowed Brandon Carlo’s
brown fedora, and it was

perched atop his head.
“I took a chance,” he said.
“I’m not usually a fashionista,
so I don’t know how it looked,
but what the hell.”
Krug hoped the look would
catch on.
“Look good, feel good, play
good,” he said, smiling under
his sharp gray scally. “You have
a little bit of swagger, I think it
bleeds into your game.”
Plenty of pomp
Also seen and heard in the
land of the Fighting Irish:
Bruins legends Cam Neely,
Ray Bourque, and Johnny
Bucyk were introduced before
the national anthem. On the
Chicago side: Denis Savard,
Tony Esposito, Bobby Hull (in a
wheelchair), and Jill Mikita,
the wife of the late Stan Mikita.
Tim Brown, the 1987 Heisman
Trophy winner for the Fighting
Irish, dropped the first puck.
The band Weezer played a
concert after the first period,
and the South Bend Symphony
Orchestra, a 22-piece ensemble
with brass, reeds, percussion,
and seven stringed instruments, played the Notre Dame
fight song (“Victory March”) as
the teams walked together out
of the tunnel. Chicago singer
Jim Cornelison belted a stirring rendition of the anthem,
after which four A-10 Thun-
derbolt II planes flew over the
“When the crowd started
cheering at the anthem,” Kuraly said, “I think we all got
chills. It was pretty cool to look
around and take in a little bit
of it, because who knows how
many, if any of us, will play in
any of these games again.”
Notre Dame’s mascot, waving a flag and skating between
the teams lined up on the blue
line for the anthem, caused a
few laughs when he took a
hard spill. After he leapt to his
feet, several players tapped
him with their sticks.
“He didn’t want anyone to
feel sorry for him,” Kuraly said.
“He’s got a bruised tailbone,
that’s for sure.”
Perfectly weathered
Neither team touched the
outdoor ice before the pregame
warm-up because of Monday’s
steady rain, but they had some
Irish luck on game day.
It was an overcast sky, no
sun to blind them. It was 35
degrees at puck drop, no biting
cold to chill them. No significant wind or precipitation. The
ice was smooth for skating,
and though players said a bit
bouncier than usual, no one
registered a complaint, and
play did not stop so officials
could patch any rough spots.
Seeing 50­40
With his 50th point in his
40th game, David Pastrnak
(24-26) became Boston’s first
50-in-40 guy since Marc Sa­
vard (2006-07) . . . Defenseman Kevan Miller gave the
Bruins 1:12 of 5-on-3 time early in the third, drawing consecutive minors (high stick, trip).
The Bruins didn’t score, but
finished 2-for-5 on the man-advantage. Chicago was 0-for-4
. . . The only NHL outdoor
game to out-draw this one was
the 2014 Toronto-Detroit Winter Classic, before 105,491 at
Michigan Stadium . . . Rookie
forward Ryan Donato and defenseman Steven Kampfer
were scratched. Veteran forward David Backes was serving the second of a three-game
suspension . . . Rask played in
his 469th game, the most by a
Bruins goaltender. He passed
Ralph “Tiny” Thompson (468).
Rask entered the afternoon
with the top career save percentage (.922) in franchise history . . . Marchand on Pastrnak’s goal celebration: “I was
a little thrown off. I’ve never
seen him do that before. . . .
You get a goal like that in a big
game like this, you can do
whatever you want.” Said
Marchand after learning his
linemate was copying LeBron
James: “Well, Pasta and
LeBron are very similar.”

Continued from Page C1
“We see what happened this
time as primarily the regular,
rough-and-tumble part of the
NFL busin ess — win or go
home,” Mehri, the founder and
general counsel for the Fritz
Pollard Alliance, said in a
phone interview on Tuesday.
“But we remain very optimistic
about where things are going
And minority coaches are
certainly being included in this
year’s interview cycle. Patriots
defensive play-caller Brian
Flores has gotten requests from
five teams to interview for head
coaching jobs. Jim Caldwell,
George Edwards, Kris Richard,
and Eric Bieniemy have gotten
requests, as well, and Lewis,
Bowles, and Jackson should get
interviews, too. The NFL probably won’t have eight minority
head coaches again in 2019,
but there should be at least
four or five, and hopefully seven or eight again by 2020.
“ You have owners interviewing minority candidates
for head coach and GM for
every opening,” Mehri said. “So
all we’ve ever asked for was a
fair chance to compete, and let
the best candidate be hired.”
But that doesn’t mean that
minority hiring in the NFL is
all peachy. The lack of minority
offensive coordinators and
quarterbacks coaches is glaring, and remains a significant
obstacle for minorities to get
head coaching jobs.
Of the 20 head coaches
hired over the last three seasons, 15 had offensive backgrounds. Yet members of minority groups are significantly
underrepresented as offensive
coordinators. The NFL had 14
minority coordinators last year,
but only two were offensive coordinators. The NFL also had
just two minority quarterbacks
coaches. One from each list
was the same person — Cardinals offensive coordinator/
quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich.
“Our biggest challenge is
that there are too few minority
coaches who are play-callers as
offensive coordinators, or quarterback coaches, and that pipeline needs to get strengthened,”
Mehri said. “Even though defense wins championships, the
owners seem to be fascinated
by offensive coordinators, and
so few of them are minority
NFL owners want excitement when they hire a new
coach, and that usually means
hiring an offensive guy.
At the start of the 2018 NFL
season, 18 of the 32 head
coaches had an offensive background. Of those, 16 were either quarterback coaches or
played the position in college
and the pros. Lynn (running
backs) and the Jaguars’ Doug
Marrone (offensive line) were
the two that didn’t have a quarterback background.
The NFL has a significant
number of minority coaches
for running backs, wide receivers, and every defensive position. But quarterbacks coaches
are far and away the most
heavily represented among
head coaches.
“One [goal] is to open up
the minds that a running backs
coach can be an offensive coordinator,” Mehri said. “There’s
this thought, ‘Well, a running
backs coach can’t be ultimately
a head coach.’ Anthony Lynn
shows you that’s wrong.”
Leftwich, the former Jagu a r s q u a r t e r b a c k , go t h i s
coaching start as part of a minority internship that the Cardinals created four years ago,
w h i c h Me h r i h o p e s o t h e r
teams will adopt.
The NFL has a Bill Walsh
Diversity Coaching Fellowship
that places coaches with teams
during the offseason and training camp, but the Cardinals’
program keeps coaches on staff
all season long.
“Those kind of opportunities where we can get more former players into coaching, and
in particular on the offensive
side, that’s the kind of movement we need to strengthen
opportunities going forward,”
Mehri said.
But Mehri and the Fritz Pollard Alliance don’t view the system as broken, even with five
minority head coaches getting
fired this year.
Wilks was fired after just
one year as the Cardinals’ head
coach, and Joseph got just two
years with the Broncos. But
Mehri points out that white
coaches can get the quick hook,
too. The Titans fired Mike Mularkey even after he won a playoff game last year, and Cam
Cameron was once one-anddone with the Dolphins. Impatience rules in the NFL.
“It’s just the way the business is run,” Mehri said. “There
is a phenomenon that goes
across the business of being
impatient with coaches —
which you could argue is not a
good thing, regardless of race,
that people are just too quick.”
And the NFL actually adopted several meaningful changes
to the Rooney Rule in December, at the urging of the Fritz
Pollard Alliance.
Whoever is a team’s final decision-maker — usually the
owner — now must sit in on all
head coaching interviews. This
came in response to Oakland’s
Mark Davis skipping some interviews last year, as he was set
on hiring Jon Gruden.
And teams are now required to interview at least one
minority candidate from outside the team, or from a list
provided by the NFL’s Career
Development Advisory List.
This should prevent teams
from doing sham interviews
with an in-house minority
coach who has no realistic shot
of getting the head coaching
“ We feel that there were
some end runs around the
Rooney Rule in the past that
are not going to happen going
forward,” Mehri said. “So that
adds to our optimism that over
time, this is going to continue
to be a really successful effort.”
Mehri is also optimistic because Roger Goodell was overwhelmingly in favor of
strengthening the Rooney
Rule. Another change adopted
in December now requires
teams to document which minorities were interviewed,
when each interview occurred,
and who was present in the
“Goodell showed leadership
on this issue, getting behind
the reforms we were asking
for,” Mehri said. “This is one of
those things where he gets
such a bad rap, but he did leadership here that no one even
knows about.”
The NFL almost certainly
won’t have as many minority
head coaches in 2019 as in the
past, but Mehri and the Fritz
Pollard Alliance are at least encouraged by the league’s progress.
“ T h e r e m ay b e u p s a n d
downs along the way in terms
of the representation numbers,
but all we can ask for is a fair
chance to compete,” he said.
“We are very optimistic about
where things are going, and
over time we’re going to continue to succeed and create opportunities for people.”

The 2 points the Bruins (2214-4) earned helped them keep
pace with the rest of the Eastern Conference contenders (48
points, 6 points behindToronto
for second place in the East).
Much more was tucked into
this box score.
A sold-out crowd (76,126),
the second-largest to watch an
NHL game outdoors, saw all
the pageantry of the NHL’s
midseason nostalgia-fueled
showcase. It was mostly Chicago fans, too, but Boston backers

through, and near the end.
Tuukka Rask, who stopped
36 of 38 shots, loomed large in
the second period when the
Blackhawks pushed. He
stopped Chicago sniper Patrick
Kane twice on a breakaway, the
score tied. He also denied him
again with 40 seconds left and
Chicago charging, 6-on-5.
“It’s a special stage,” said
Rask, who helped the Bruins
improve to 2-1 in Winter Classics (2010 win over Philadelphia at Fenway, 2016 loss to
Montreal at Gillette).
The Blackhawks (15-21-6)
scored the opening goal 8:30 in,
when Brendan Perlini snapped
one past Rask off a Torey Krug
turnover behind the net. But
the Bruins took advantage of
the league’s worst penalty kill
(74.2 percent success coming
in) to tie it.
Bergeron snatched the puck
from Marcus Kruger and fed
Pastrnak all alone in front. The
patient sniper waited as Cam
Ward opened his pads, then
slipped it low. Pastrnak joyfully
pumped his arms in full flight.
“I was trying to do the LeBron James,” Pastrnak said.
After Chicago’s Dominik Kahun tipped the puck past Rask
for a 2-1 lead at 11:24 of the
second, Bergeron produced the
game’s key sequence.
Beginning at 18:20 in the
second period, a national TV
audience saw 28 seconds of Perfect Patrice.
After Joakim Nordstrom
drew a roughing call on Chicago defenseman Erik Gustafsson, for ward David Kampf
pressured Pastrnak into a turnover inside the blue line, racing
the other way for a potential
shorty. Bergeron, who broke as
soon as he saw his winger about
to cough it up, churned his 33year-old legs to catch Kampf.
He correctly guessed Kampf, after deking Rask backhand,
would return to his forehand.
When Kampf did, Bergeron lifted the stick and knocked the
puck loose.
“He never quits. That’s why
he’s Patrice Bergeron,” coach
Bruce Cassidy said of Bergeron,
the four-time Selke Trophy winner. “I expect him to make
game-changing plays. That’s
just who he is.”
After the game, Bergeron recalled every decision he made
over that 6-second span. Rask,
sitting next to him, listened to
his narration, then leaned in
and repeated, “Selke . . . Selke.”
After preventing a goal that
would have made it 3-1,
Bergeron made it 2-2 on the
power play when he noticed
Chicago’s Brandon Saad had
lost his stick. He cruised into
the slot, and when defenseman
Brent Seabrook blocked a Pastrnak try from the circle,
Bergeron shoveled the rebound
past Ward on the backhand at

Muscling his way toward the
front of the net, the 6-foot-2inch, 213-pound fourth-liner
playing with a busted nose (full
face shield intact) pounced on a
rebound and slipped it past
Ward (32 saves on 35 shots).
Helping out: Chris Wagner,
his partner in grime, who absorbed a Matt Grzelcyk slapper
after creating a turnover by
snowplowing Blackhawks defenseman Gustav Forsling
along the boards. A breakdown
in coverage, Grzelcyk’s step-up
shot, and Kuraly dunked the rebound to get his second winner
in two games (after beating Buffalo in OT on Saturday).
“We’ll leave the pretty ones
to the guys who score the pretty
ones,” said Kuraly, who pumped
his arms in the air and
slammed his fists against the
glass as he leapt on it.
He said the celebration was
purely a reaction, nothing
planned for the stage of the
Winter Classic, just the passion
of the moment taking over.
“Not the best at hiding my
emotions after something like
that,” he said. “No reason to.”

Kampf was racing right down

Tuukka Rask to beat, with visions of the Stadium scoreboard about to read “3-1”.

breakaway so I’m trying not to

Bergeron, meanwhile, was
laser focused on the other gap,
the stride or two Kampf had on
him. That had to be addressed
right away. Legs churning, he
caught up with him low in the
slot as the Blackhawks center
glided in on shooting mode.
“Once he went on his backhand,” noted Bergeron, recalling his read in those seconds, “I
knew he was going to go back
on his forehand, so I was waiting for him to do that and just
lifted up his stick.”
The shot never came.
Bergeron, as if playing on his
favorite childhood rink in Quebec City, raced up and smacked
his stick hard on the shaft of
Kampf ’s stick. Shot negated.
Goal denied.
It was all hustle, calculation,
and determination, Bergeron
summoning all that on a storied field where the Irish football players believe they hold a
patent on such gutsy stuff.
Chicago’s Jonathan Toews had the Bruins’ Patrice Bergeron on his tail in the first period.
Those football boys might want
to start training camp this summer with a look of the video
clip that shows how Bergeron
stole their script and rewrote it
on the fly.
“A big uplifting play for us,”
said Cassidy, noting he was well
aware, without Bergeron’s play,
that doom was at his bench’s
doorstep. “And it’s again one of
those things that it’s a teaching
moment for our younger guys
how not to quit on plays. That’s
the leadership we rely on him
for — and sure enough it gets
rewarded at the other end.”

ask? Yep, Bergeron. His easy
backhand knock tied it, 2-2.
That was the velvetine dagger. Sean Kuraly knocked home
the tiebreaker/game-winner in
the third. But that entire se-
quence — 28 seconds from the
time Kampf took possession
until Bergeron disrupted and
scored — was the foundational
piece de resistance.
“It bounced a few times,”
Bergeron said. “It wasn’t necessarily pretty, but we’ll take it.”
Quintessential outdoor
hockey, and quintessential
Bergeron, his recollection of
the moment as understated as
his game.
Rask, sitting at Bergeron’s
side during the postgame news
conference, rightly muttered,
“ S e l k e . . . S e l k e ,” w h e n
Bergeron finished talking
about the play. Bergeron has
won the Selke Trophy four
times as the NHL’s best defensive forward.
The play was sheer artwork.
Painted on canvas, it could
hang as a masterpiece at the
H o c k e y H a l l o f Fa m e . A l l
whipped up in less than 30 seconds, albeit with a lifetime of
training, trying, and above all,
never quitting. Once over that
snowbank, the Labrador never
gives up the puck.
“The whole lead-up to it,”
said Cassidy, folding the moment into a memorable visit.
“Seeing the building to fill
[with fans] and looking like it’s
not going to go our way, and all
of a sudden Bergy backchecks,
scores a goal at the other end. I
think that’s the part I’ll remember about the actual game.”
Worth remembering. Understated perfection on a perfect Winter Classic afternoon.

Russia is facing
WADA ban again
By Eddie Pells
The deadline for Russia to turn over samples
and other data from its Moscow anti-doping lab
passed Tuesday, leaving the World Anti-Doping
Agency to decide whether to reinstate the ban it
had lifted in September.
WADA’s decision to declare the Russian AntiDoping Agency compliant came with the requirement that it turn over data and samples by Dec.
But on Dec. 21, WADA announced its team of
scientists had left the lab empty-handed because
Russian authorities said the equipment they used
had to be certified under Russian law.
WADA’s compliance review committee will
meet Jan. 14-15 to consider reinstating the ban,
and the WADA executive committee will meet ‘‘as
soon as practicable thereafter’’ to consider the
recommendation, a WADA news release said
‘‘I am bitterly disappointed that data extraction from the former Moscow Laboratory has not
been completed by the date agreed by WADA’s
ExCo in September 2018,’’ WADA president Craig
Reedie said.
Reedie and other WADA leaders have been
under withering criticism since the decision in
After the deadline passed, US Anti-Doping
Agency CEO Travis Tygart said ‘‘no one is surprised this deadline was ignored and it’s time for
WADA to stop being played by the Russians and
immediately declare them non-compliant for failing yet again to meet the deadline.’’
The UK Anti-Doping athletes’ commission also released a statement Tuesday calling on WADA
to reimpose the sanctions immediately.
After WADA was turned away, Russian Sports
Minister Pavel Kolobkov told local media the WADA team would return.
But as the deadline approached and no progress was reported, RUSADA chief Yuri Ganus appealed to president Vladimir Putin to help resolve the issue.
“We’re standing on the edge of the abyss, and
I’m asking you to protect the present and the future of our clean sports, the current and future
generations of athletes,’’ Ganus said in a letter addressed to Putin last week.

19 for 2019: What to
watch for with Celtics
By Adam Himmelsbach
Here are 19 things for Celtics fans to watch
for in 2019. Happy new year.
R Al Horford’s knee: Horford missed seven
games in December because of patellofemoral
pain syndrome, a condition caused by damaged cartilage under the kneecap. The Celtics
said they were erring on the side of caution,
and that their primary goal is to have him
healthy when he is needed most.
Horford has played well since his return
and has had no issues with the knee, but he
will be 33 in June, and that condition could return. Look for the Celtics to steal occasional
rest games for Horford.
R Return of Aron Baynes: Even though the
center averages just 14.2 minutes per game,
his absence due to a broken left hand is significant. The Celtics have outscored opponents
by 10.9 points per 100 possessions when
Baynes is on the court, the team’s top net rating.
In recent losses to the Bucks, Rockets, and
Spurs, Baynes’s absence was glaring, as opponents feasted inside. Baynes was expected to
be out four to six weeks, and he is almost at
the two-week mark, so he should be back
R Jabari Bird situation: There appears to
be no imminent resolution to Bird’s case. The
second-year guard was arrested on domestic
violence charges Sept. 8, and recent months
have mostly just brought court appearances
resulting in more court appearances. Bird’s
next one is scheduled for Jan. 30. Look for the
Celtics to part ways with him whenever the
case is finalized, opening up a roster spot.
R Anthony Davis and the Pelicans: Last
season, Davis led New Orleans to the Western
Conference semifinals. The team hoped the
upward trend would continue and Davis
would then re-sign on a super-max extension
this summer.
But New Orleans is just 17-21, and the belief around the league is that Davis ultimately
will inform the Pelicans that he does not intend to re-sign, all but forcing them to seek a
trade. If that happens, the Celtics will be one
of the first teams at the door with their pile of
shiny assets.
R Warriors games! The Celtics and Warriors were once viewed as the two teams most
likely to meet in this season’s Finals. Both
have sputtered, although Golden State’s Finals
track does not appear to be in great danger.
The Celtics, meanwhile, have two great opportunities to remind everyone why they were
once Eastern Conference favorites. The teams
will meet at TD Garden Jan. 26 before a rematch in Oakland March 5.
Regular-season meetings usually end up
meaning more to the team playing against
Golden State. But the Celtics have had success
against the Warriors and earned their respect,
so Golden State will take the challenges seriously.
R But that’s not all: The Celtics recently
completed a dreadful stretch of their schedule
in which they played mostly lottery teams. But
2019 will be different. In addition to the two
Golden State games, Boston still has three left
against the Pacers and two each against the
Lakers, Clippers, Raptors, and 76ers, as well
as games against the Thunder, Bucks, Nuggets, and Rockets.
R Trade deadline: The NBA trade deadline
is Feb. 7. With a talented roster and plenty of
future assets, the Celtics don’t have an obvious
need. There was a time when Marcus Morris,
who figured to have a diminished role and will
be an unrestricted free agent at season’s end,
appeared most likely to be dealt. But he has
been Boston’s second-most valuable player
this year.
Terry Rozier will be a restricted free agent,
but his value probably has dipped since last
May, and he also will be an important part of
any playoff run.
It’s never wise to believe that Danny Ainge
will sit back and wait, but Celtics fans probably should pay more attention to moves by potential playoff opponents such as the 76ers.
R Future draft picks: 2018 was not a great
year for Boston’s future assets. The Celtics will
receive the better of the Kings’ and 76ers’
picks as long as neither is No. 1 overall; they
also will get the Grizzlies’ pick if it falls outside
the top eight and the Clippers’ pick if it falls
outside the top 14.
The Kings’ pick was viewed as the top asset, but Sacramento is 19-17 and clawing for a
playoff spot. The Grizzlies are slumping but
still 18-17. It’s actually good for the Celtics
that the Clippers are good, but they would
prefer that they fall a bit from the No. 4 spot in
the West.
The guess here is that when all is said and
done, the best pick of the lot will be the Grizzlies’ pick at No. 10 overall.

Wolves thumbnails
R When, where: Wednesday, 8 p.m., at TD Garden.
R TV, radio: NBCSN, ESPN, WBZ­FM (98.5).
R Scoring: Karl­Anthony Towns 21.7, Derrick Rose

R Assists: Jeff Teague 8.3, Rose 4.8, Tyus Jones 3.6.
R Head to head: This is the second of two meetings.
Boston went 2­0 vs. Minnesota last season.
R Miscellany: Minnesota is 5­14 on the road, allow­
ing 114.6 points per game . . . Rose and Teague
missed Monday’s game with ankle injuries and are
questionable . . . The Wolves have allowed the most
3­pointers at the highest percentage in the NBA this
season . . . Towns is averaging 22.6 points and 13.6
rebounds per game since Jimmy Butler was traded
Nov 10.

Kyrie Irving has dominated, but he is the
only Celtic having an All-Star season.
son, the over/under on Celtics All-Stars probably would have been 3.5. But the team has
stumbled, and Kyrie Irving is the only player
having a true All-Star season. If Boston gets a
second All-Star, it would probably be Morris,
but the Celtics probably will have to move out
of fifth place in the East for that to happen.
R But look for Kyrie to be All­NBA: Irving
has been dominant. When he is on the court,
the Celtics have outscored opponents by 10.2
points per 100 possessions. And when he sits,
they have been outscored by 0.3 points per
100 possessions. He is the only player whose
departure from games has resulted in a negative net rating.
Last season the team had a 5.2 net rating
with him on the court and 2.2 with him off, a
considerably more narrow margin than this
year. Irving has been named All-NBA just
once, when he was a third-team pick in 2015.
R Jaylen Brown’s consistency: The Celtics
have been waiting for the third-year wing to
snap out of his offensive funk. Every time it
looks as if he has found a rhythm, he regresses. Consider: After averaging 21 points per
game over a three-game December stretch, he
followed by averaging 4 points in his next
three. Perhaps this latest surge — Brown has
made 20 of 30 shots in his last three games —
will be sustainable.
R Playoff matchups: Even though more
than half of the season remains, the top five
seeds in the Eastern Conference have been all
but locked up. It would be stunning if the Raptors, Bucks, Pacers, 76ers, and Celtics did not
occupy those spots. But there will be plenty of
jostling for position.
As Boston showed when it was trampled in
three opening-round road games against the
Bucks last season, home court matters. It
might be tough for the Celtics to grab the No.
1 seed, but their preference would be to at
least secure home court in a conference semifinal matchup.
R The defense: After the Celtics defeated
the Pelicans Dec. 10, their 102.1 defensive rating was second in the NBA. Since then,
though, they’ve been something of a sieve, allowing 111.6 points per 100 possessions, 20th
in the NBA over a three-week span. Baynes’s
return should help, but this team doesn’t have
enough offensive firepower to let up at the
other end.
R Marcus Smart’s . . . 3­point shooting?
He won’t be confused with Stephen Curry anytime soon, but Smart has quietly improved his
3-point percentages in four consecutive seasons, from 25.3 to 28.3 to 30.1 to 32.3 this
year. If he can eventually settle in around 35
percent, the Celtics would be thrilled.
R Kyrie’s playing time: Irving averages
32.3 minutes per game, which ranks just 47th
in the NBA. He said recently that he would
like to play more and shoot more. And over
the last seven games, he is averaging 34.7
minutes per game, which would be tied for
16th in the league.
R The Raptors: Toronto’s success could be
notable both this year and beyond. If the Raptors make the NBA Finals, Kawhi Leonard
may think twice about signing with a Los Angeles team in the summer, and that would be
bad news for Boston.
R Isaiah Thomas’s return? Last season
there was some awkward controversy surrounding Thomas’s return to Boston with the
Cavaliers. The injured guard asked that his
video tribute be postponed until he was playing, and then that game happened to be Paul
Pierce’s jersey retirement day, and then Thomas was traded before it mattered.
Anyway, Thomas, who still has yet to play
this season as he recovers from last March’s
hip surgery, is scheduled to return to Boston
with the Nuggets March 18.
R Gordon Hayward’s return to form: It appears increasingly likely that Hayward’s 30point, 9-rebound, 8-assist game against the
Timberwolves Dec. 1 was an aberration. In his
11 games since then, he is averaging 8.6
points, 3.8 rebounds, and 3.5 assists while
shooting 34.8 percent overall and 28.6 percent on 3-pointers.
With the season almost halfway over, it’s
fair to wonder whether that is just what Hayward will be this season.
R A two­way add: The Celtics waived twoway contract player Walt Lemon Nov. 29 and
have yet to fill the slot. Given Boston’s roster
depth, there is no urgency to add a G-League
player who can spend a maximum of 45 days
with the Celtics. But the Celtics will probably
fill the spot to get a look at a young prospect.

D’Urso, Andover like blank slate
By Jenna Ciccotelli
The Andover High girls’ hockey
team is off to a 6-0-1 start, the best
opening run in the five-year tenure of
coach Kevin Drew.
At the forefront has been stellar
work from senior goalie Sean D’Urso.
She started the season with five consecutive shutouts, including one
against second-ranked Methuen/
Tewksbury, a Division 1 state finalist
last season.
A three-year starter, D’Urso has not
forgotten the 6-12-2 finish her freshman year, and the team’s 8-10-2 record
as a sophomore.
D’Urso offered a few thoughts as the
Golden Warriors entered 2019.
“Everyone thinks we’re just a joke
team,” she said. “The past few years, it
hasn’t been shown.”
D’Urso pointed to last year’s 12-6-5
run, in which the Golden Warriors entered the tournament as the No. 22
seed before suffering a 3-0 loss to thenundefeated Austin Prep.
“We had to work our butts off the
entire season,” D’Urso said. “When we
got to play AP, we knew we had it in us,
but AP was such a big name. We went
in with our heads down. If we could’ve
kept our heads up, we could’ve made it
farther than we did.”
It was the deepest tournament run
in program history. And it was the
steppingstone for the current Merrimack Valley/Dual County League leaders, ranked sixth in this week’s Globe
Top 20.
“We don’t have to prove it to anyone
besides ourselves,” D’Urso said. “We’re
not trying to show other teams that
we’re great. We’re trying to prove it to
us and to our coach.”
For starters, D’Urso said, they try to
follow this edict from their coach:
“Score three goals, and we win a
So far, so good for the Warriors,
who have scored fewer than three just
twice this season — a 2-0 win over Haverhill/Pentucket/North Andover and a
1-1 tie with Billerica/Chelmsford.
The rule is a testament to Drew’s
defensive focus.
Two summers ago, while visiting a
friend in Canada, Drew took in a few
girls’ hockey games, and studied the
forechecking strategy. He came back
and implemented a new defensive system at Andover.
Now it is starting to click.
“We don’t have a natural goal scor-

lot of teams don’t even get any shots
against us with the forechecking system we use.”
As the first pairing on defense, senior Katie Adams and junior Sara Car­
leo have spearheaded a unit that has
given up just four goals this season.
“[Drew] has so much confidence in
our defense,” D’Urso said. “What we’re
doing is working. We work very well in
the defensive zone. If I need something, if I need help saving rebounds, I
know they’re going to be there.”
Both D’Urso and Drew said they believe what fuels the Golden Warriors
will not show up in the box score.
“I believe in high school sports, you
don’t have to be the most talented, you
just have to have the best team,” Drew
said. “They’re much more confident in
their ability. And it’s working.”
With a roster that boasts 10 upperclassmen — including captains D’Urso,
Adams, Emily Wagner, Emma Gilmar­
tin, and Callie Wiley — the Andover
girls know where their program has
been. And there’s an air of confidence
about where the program can go.
“I don’t think people understand
how much we want it,” D’Urso said.
“We want this so badly. We are going to
do whatever it takes to get to the playoffs, do whatever it takes to get to the
[TD] Garden.
“We have so much determination,
and I think other teams really underestimate us.”
Ice chips
At 5-1-1, the Peabody/Lynnfield/
North Reading co-op is off to a hot
start, punctuated by a 3-2 win Saturday over Winthrop/Lynn/Saugus.
According to Peabody coach Mi­
chelle Roach, it was the first win over
Winthrop in program history.
“It’s been a long haul,” she said.
“We’ve been trying to improve the program over the last four years I’ve been
here. I think we’ve made some great
“This was a big game for us, this
was a big league win, and it’s great going into January.”
According to schedules posted on, the win was the
first time in 13 games that the Tanners
had beaten Winthrop. Including Saturday, Winthrop has outscored Peabody,

73-14, in that span.
“It’s a really big accomplishment. I
think we’ve come really far from when
I started out my freshman year,” said
senior goalie Abby Buckley, a captain.
“Losing to them, it feels good to finally
get a win.”
After Winthrop eighth-grader Julia
Holmes (two goals) scored 3:50 into
the game, Peabody junior Jenn Flynn
tied it five minutes later. Junior Sam­
mie Mirasolo scored two goals to lead
the Tanners — including a shorthanded goal midway through the second period that proved to be the winner.
“A game like this boosts our morale,” said senior captain Kathryn DiGi­
ulio. “I’m excited to see where it will go
in the future.”
The Tanners have played well in
close games, including a 2-2 tie to No.
15 Masconomet and a 4-1 loss to thirdranked St. Mary’s.
“It’s all about energy,” said DiGiulio.
“Any team out here we can beat, as
long as we don’t get outworked. I think
as long as we come wanting to play,
wanting to win — we can win.”

Federer, Serena enjoy first on­court meeting
After nearly two decades of appearing alongside one another on billboards and in record books, Serena Williams
and Roger Federer faced one another across a tennis court
for the first time Tuesday in Perth, Australia. The stars, now
both 37, finally aligned for the first time in a mixed doubles
match between the United States and Switzerland at the
Hopman Cup team event. Federer and partner, Belinda Ben­
cic, defeated Williams and Frances Tiafoe in an abbreviated
Fast4 format match, 4-2, 4-3 (5-3), for Switzerland in 46 minutes. ‘‘I was nervous returning [Williams’s serve]. People talk
about her serve so much and I see why it is such a wonderful
serve because you just can’t read it,’’ Federer said. ‘‘It was
great fun. You see how determined and focused she is, and I
love that about her.’’ Federer and Williams have won 43
Grand Slam singles titles between them. Earlier, Federer beat
Tiafoe, 6-4, 6-1, in the men’s singles before Williams’s 4-6,
6-4, 6-3 victory over Bencic. On the opening point of the
mixed double match, Williams pulled Federer wide to his
forehand side with a sharply angled volley, then sent a smash
toward the opposite corner that he could not reach in time.
LSU ends UCF’s unbeaten run at 25
There will be no self-proclaimed national championship
for Central Florida this year. LSU snapped UCF’s 25-game
winning streak with a 40-32 victory at the Fiesta Bowl in
Glendale, Ariz., with Joe Burrow dissecting the Knights’ secondary for 394 yards passing and four touchdowns. The seventh-ranked Knights entered as one of only three remaining
unbeaten teams. The others are No. 1 Alabama and No. 2
Clemson, who meet for the national title next Monday. A depleted LSU team rolled for 555 yards, easily the most allowed
by the Knights this season. Burrow had touchdown passes of
22, 49, 33, and 32 yards. UCF, meanwhile, managed just 250
yards after entering the game ranked third nationally at 545
yards per game . . . Dwayne Haskins passed for 251 yards and
three touchdowns, and Urban Meyer finished his coaching
career at Ohio State (13-1) with a 28-23 victory after the
Buckeyes held off a thrilling fourth-quarter comeback by
Washington (10-4) in the 105th Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. . . . Oklahoma and Lincoln Riley, 35, agreed to a contract
extension, which should quell speculation about the secondyear coach being lured away by an NFL team.
Browns’ coaching search begins
Gregg Williams had his interview with the Cleveland
Browns, who were impressed by his leadership as coach in
the second half this season. Williams went 5-3 as Cleveland’s
interim coach after taking over when Hue Jackson was fired
Oct. 29. Williams, 60, is the first candidate to meet with general manager John Dorsey, who is casting a wide net as the
Browns look for their ninth coach since 1999 . . . The Lions
are not renewing offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter’s
contract. The Lions announced their decision two days after
finishing 6-10 in coach Matt Patricia’s first season at the
helm . . . The Seahawks placed safety Delano Hill on injured
reserve after suffering a non-displaced fracture in his hip in
the regular-season finale against Arizona. The loss of Hill is
somewhat countered by the expectation that fellow safety
Tedric Thompson will be able to play after missing the past
two games with a pair of injuries.
NU’s Madden powers Team USA
Northeastern’s Tyler Madden scored twice and Jason Rob­
ertson had a goal and an assist as the United States closed
out the preliminary round of the world junior hockey championship Monday night with a 4-1 win over Finland in Victoria, British Columbia. The Americans finished second in
Group B behind unbeaten Sweden . . . Petra Vlhova took advantage of her height to beat Mikaela Shiffrin in both runs of
the final and win a parallel slalom city event in Oslo.

LAING, Harriet
Of Newton Center, died on Saturday
November 10, 2018 at the Scandinavian
Living Center at the age of 87. She was
predeceased by her beloved husband,
David A. Laing, and survived by, David
A.B. Laing and his wife Barbara of
Malden, Cameron A. Laing and his wife
Kirsten Bergquist of Medford as well as
her daughter-in-law Kathleen Sweeney,
and grandchild Patricia Laing of
Methuen in addition to many extended
family located in the USA, Scotland,
and Australia.
Harriet was born in Fitchburg, MA
on January 8, 1931, the daughter of
the late Albert and Elizabeth (Hutcheon) Birnie. She grew up in Fitchburg
and, after graduating High School in
1948, pursued a career in nursing. She
became a Registered Nurse while studying and working at Children’s Hospital
in Boston. She continued to update her
nursing skills at Boston College, Boston
University, and Northeastern University
where she earned her Family Nurse
Practitioner certification.
Throughout her life, Harriet was
committed to women’s health causes.
In addition to many years serving
as a volunteer counselor at Planned
Parenthood, Harriet provided valuable
community service as a volunteer nurse
at a Multiservice Center that served the
Newton, Weston, and Wellesley area.
Until her retirement, Harriet devoted
herself to providing health services to
her female patients.
Harriet was very active in church
activities at the Church of the Covenant
in Boston where she had first met
and married her husband David. She
later served as an Elder and Deacon at
the Presbyterian Church in Needham
(PCN) and was active in the Presbytery
of Boston. Among the many church
ministries to which she devoted herself
was the knitting group, where she
knit blankets and clothing for people
in need. Harriet was also a leader for
the project that led to the Labyrinth
that is now located on the PCN church
grounds. This Labyrinth is open to the
public and her family encourages those
who knew Harriet to walk its circuitous
path as a way of remembering her and
seeking inner peace.
Harriet loved to travel. Her travels
included multiple trips to Russia with
the Bridges to Peace tour group as well
as other locations such as the Panama
Canal, Alaska, Finland, England, and,
of course, visiting family and friends
in Scotland. In addition, Harriet and
her late husband David were avid
enthusiasts of the arts and the Boston
Symphony Orchestra.

held on Tuesday January 8, 2019 at

LARKIN, Lenore Gloria
Age 90, born February 20, 1928, passed
away peacefully on December 29, 2018.

heart, she grew up in Dorchester, MA.

Lenore was loved by everybody who
came in contact with her. A selfless
woman, who always put her family
first. She was an avid sports fan and
watched every Red Sox and Patriots
game religiously, and took up college
football once her granddaughter Billi
attended University of South Carolina.
She loved all animals and relished visits
from all four-legged friends, and in her
last days, enjoyed the many birds visiting her feeders on her back porch.
Lenore was a great athlete her whole
life, and was a competitive tennis player on various club teams for 30 years,
and in her later years, she enjoyed
many wonderful afternoons cheering
from the sidelines as she watched her
friends play.
Lenore loved to sing and dance. She
had a wonderful voice, and on every
family gathering she was always asked
to sing “Old Man River”. On her last day
on earth, the cantor sang this very song
as she slept peacefully,
Ah gits weary,
An’ sick of trying’
An’ tired of living
and scared of dying
But ol’ man river
He just keeps rollin along

a period of declining health. Born in

nursing stint in Sacramento, California,
she worked at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in

member of the Attleboro Nurses Club.
Theresa settled in Attleboro, where
she raised her daughters, Terri and

supporting him in all of his pursuits.
Traveling extensively in the United
States and Canada, she enjoyed exploring national parks and taking mystery
trips with her friends. Trips to New
Zealand, Australia, Russia, and many
European countries were experiences
Theresa loved. She made multiple trips
to Ireland, maintaining close ties with

market, she participated in several
investment clubs. For many years, she

David Austin, a self-taught
horticulturist who upended the
rose market by creating more
than 200 hybrids that were distinguished by their broad color
range, ambrosial fragrances,
and multiple annual blooms,
died Dec. 18 at his home in Albrighton, in Shropshire County,
England. He was 92.
His company, David Austin
Roses, announced the death
but did not specify the cause.
Mr. Austin spent six decades
obsessively pursuing his ideal
of what a rose could be, by developing varieties that combined the fragrances of the old
roses that he adored — but that
had largely disappeared from
modern gardens — with the
rich palette and repeat flowerings of the stiff and lightly
scented hybrid teas and floribundas that had long become
dominant in nurseries, flower
shops, and home vases.
Mr. Austin later recalled
that he had to ignore doubters
who insisted that nobody
would grow his old-but-new
“I was never that influenced
by what other people said or
thought,” he told Gardens Illustrated magazine in 2002. “I’m
slightly dyslexic, and I think I
make connections that other
people don’t.”
He would become one of the
world’s leading rose breeders.
His English Roses — there are
230 varieties to date — are considered the benchmark for

“Few spectacles provide
more pleasure than a vase of his
roses newly cut and still sparkling with dew in the morning,
and few bridal bouquets are
complete without a David Austin creation,” Stefan Buczacki, a
horticulturist and former host
of a British gardening show,
wrote in The Daily Mail after
Mr. Austin’s death.
From its base in Albrighton,
David Austin Roses sells English Roses in 30 countries
through mail order and retail,
and to florists.
With whimsy and an appreciation of literature and history,
Mr. Austin gave memorable
names to his roses: Charles
Darwin (with yellow cupped
blooms), James Galway (a
climber with dense pink rosettes), Dame Judi Dench (orange blooms with ruffled petals), and Roald Dahl (whose orange-red buds open up to peach
“He used to say that the easiest way to kill a rose was to give
it a bad name,” Michael Marriott, senior rosarian at David
Austin Roses, said in a telephone interview.
David Charles Henshaw
Austin was born Feb. 16, 1926,
in Albrighton. His parents,
Charles and Lilian (the namesakes of two of their son’s roses), bred cattle and grew wheat,
barley, and potatoes on their
farm. From childhood, Mr. Austin planted vegetables and ornamental flowers there. But it
was a book he received on his
Norman Gimbel, 91, lauded lyricist
By Harrison Smith
Mr. Austin spent six decades obsessively pursuing his ideal of what a rose could be.
21st birthday, “Old Garden Roses” (1936) by A.E. Bunyard,
that narrowed his focus.
A rose without a fragrance,
he would say, was only half a
rose. He knew, through his
nose, that old roses like albas,
gallicas, and damasks had appealing, heady aromas that he
wanted to perpetuate by crossing them with hybrid teas.
While he was not enamored
of the category, he recognized
that the hybrid teas’ best attributes would alter the future of
old roses.
At first, while he was farming, Mr. Austin began the process of creating hybrids. By
1961 he had developed his first,
the Constance Spry (named for
a British writer and society floral designer), a pink climbing
rose with a myrrh scent.
But because it only bloomed
once a year, it was not a total
“I was still an amateur with
very little thought of becoming
a professional nurseryman,” he
said in the Gardens Illustrated
He finally gave up farming
to start his own full-time business in 1969. But recognition of
his English Roses was slow because consumers and wholesalers were fixated on hybrid teas.
His fortunes changed significantly in 1983 when he introduced three English Rose varieties, including a yellow climbing rose with a fresh tea
fragrance. They were lauded by
the press, and the attention
transformed his business.
For a few weeks in 1964, the
upper reaches of the Billboard
record charts were occupied
not only by the Beatles, Beach
Boys, Four Seasons, and Rolling
Stones, but by a seductive bossa
nova number written for a musical comedy about an alien
who visits South America.
The musical, ‘‘Blimp,’’ never
took off, although its would-be
signature song became an
international sensation — by
some accounts the secondmost-recorded song in history,
after the Beatles’ ‘‘Yesterday.’’
Written by composer Antônio
Carlos Jobim and poet Vinicius
de Moraes, it neatly filled a major plot hole: What might cause
an extraterrestrial guest to linger in Brazil?
The answer, rendered into
English by lyricist Norman
Gimbel, was a beautiful woman
from southern Rio de Janeiro:
‘‘Tall and tan and young and
‘‘The girl from Ipanema goes
‘‘And when she passes, each
one she passes goes ‘ah!’ ”
With help from Mr. Gimbel,
‘‘The Girl From Ipanema’’ went
on to drive the bossa nova craze
in the United States and beyond, introducing millions of
listeners to Brazil’s ‘‘new wave’’
fusion of samba and jazz. Alternately celebrated and mocked,
with its ubiquitous instrumental covers derided as innocuous
Muzak, versions of the song
were used as elevator music in a
scene from ‘‘The Blues Brothers’’ and as a soundtrack to the
opening ceremony of the 2016
Olympics in Rio.
Yet the tune was just one of
many hits for Mr. Gimbel, an
Oscar- and Grammy-winning
lyricist who co-wrote the theme
songs to ‘‘Happy Days’’ and ‘‘Laverne & Shirley,’’ as well as the
chart-topping ballad ‘‘Killing
Me Softly With His Song.’’ He
was 91 when he died Dec. 19 at
his home in Montecito, Calif.
His son Tony Gimbel confirmed
the death but did not give a
A Bronx-born songwriter
w h o s t u d i e d u n d e r Fr a n k
Loesser, the celebrated composer of ‘‘Guys and Dolls,’’ Mr. Gimbel co-wrote a pair of Broadway
musicals and several 1950s pop
hits, including the Andy Williams single ‘‘Canadian Sunset,’’
before adapting foreign songs
for English-language listeners.
While he was best known for
‘‘The Girl From Ipanema,’’ released as a 1964 single by Brazilian singer Astrud Gilberto
and American saxophonist Stan
Getz, he also added lyrics to
bossa nova tunes such as ‘‘Sum-
mer Samba,’’ popularized by
Walter Wanderley, and ‘‘Meditation,’’ performed by singers
including Williams and Frank
Mr. Gimbel also adapted
songs in Spanish — including
the Dean Martin hit ‘‘Sway,’’
from Mexican composer Luis
Demetrio’s ‘‘¿Quién Será?’’ —
and in French, most notably
from the 1964 movie musical
‘‘The Umbrellas of Cherbourg,’’
starring Catherine Deneuve.
‘‘Norman was an extraordinary lyricist,’’ said composer
Charles Fox, with whom he
wrote more than 150 songs, beginning with the score to the
1970 children’s movie ‘‘Pufnstuf.’’ ‘‘His words cut to the
heart of every situation he was
working toward. His words
were beautiful, sensitive. He
never used an extra word in expressing his feelings or describing the human condition.’’
‘He never used an
extra word in
expressing his
feelings or
describing the
human condition.’
CHARLES FOX, Mr. Gimbel’s
frequent collaborator
The duo’s most commercially successful song, ‘‘Killing Me
S o f t l y W i t h H i s S o n g ,’ ’ —
‘‘Strumming my pain with his
fingers / Singing my life with
his words’’ — rose to No. 1
when it was recorded by Roberta Flack in 1973, and was later
covered by the hip-hop group
the Fugees.
The tune earned Flack two
Grammys, for record of the year
and best female pop vocal performance, while Mr. Gimbel
and Fox shared the Grammy for
song of the year.
But the origins of the ballad,
first recorded by folk singer
Lori Lieberman — for whom
Mr. Gimbel and Fox served as
producers, managers, and publishers in the 1970 s — remained the subject of occasional dispute. According to Fox, he
and Mr. Gimbel had recorded
nine songs with Lieberman
when Capitol Records told
them, around 1972, that it
wanted to release an album as
soon as possible, leaving the
songwriters scrambling to
come up with one last tune.
‘‘Norman had a book with
some titles and thoughts of lyrics and he had this title, ‘Killing
Me Softly With His Song,’ ” Fox
told the Los Angeles Times. ‘‘He
wrote the lyric that day, called
me at the end of the day and
read me the lyric over the
phone. I wrote the music that
night and the next day we got
together with Lori and she
loved it.’’
Lieberman, however, often
said the song was based on a
poem she had written after a
Don McLean concert. She told
The New York Times that Mr.
Gimbel studied her diaries and
letters, in an effort to make
their songs sound more authentic, and added that he and Fox
‘‘were very, very controlling.’’
‘‘I felt like I was pushed onstage, and I was singing other
people’s material, although that
material was based on my private diaries,’’ she said.
‘‘I felt victimized for most of
my early career.’’
Mr. Gimbel and Fox also
wrote the Top 10 hit ‘‘I Got a
Name’’ for the Jeff Bridges film
‘‘The Last American Hero’’ — it
was recorded by Jim Croce and
released as a single shortly after
his death in a plane crash in
September 1973 — and created
the themes for shows such as
‘‘Happy Days,’’ inspired by the
early rock ‘n’ roll record ‘‘Rock
Around the Clock.’’
Their theme for the ‘‘Happy
Days’’ spinoff ‘‘Laverne & Shirley,’’ ‘‘Making Our Dreams
Come True,’’ was originally titled ‘‘Hoping Our Dreams Will
Come True,’’ until the show’s
producers told them ‘‘our girls
will make their dreams come
true’’ and had them tweak the
song, according to Fox.
Other Fox-Gimbel collaborations included the theme songs
to TV series such as ‘‘The Paper
Chase’’ and ‘‘Wonder Woman’’
(“All the world’s waiting for you
/ And the power you possess /
In your satin tights / Fighting
for your rights / And the old
red, white, and blue!”).
They also received Oscar
nominations for the songs
‘‘Richard’s Window,’’ performed
by Olivia Newton-John for ‘‘The
Other Side of the Mountain’’
(1975), and ‘‘Ready to Take a
Chance Again,’’ sung by Barry
Manilow in ‘‘Foul Play’’ (1978).
Mr. Gimbel finally received
the best original song honor in
1980, with composer David
Shire for ‘‘It Goes Like It Goes,’’
a b a l l a d s u n g b y Je n n i f e r
Warnes for ‘‘Norma Rae.’’
At the close of the 20th century, when performing rights
organization BMI announced
which songs were played the
most on radio and television in
the past 100 years, three of his
tunes were ranked in the top
100: ‘‘Girl From Ipanema’’ at
No. 58, ‘‘Canadian Sunset’’ at
No. 35, and ‘‘Killing Me Softly’’
at No. 11.
Mr. Hilsenrath gained international fame with his 1971
novel ‘‘The Nazi and the Barber,’’ which was a bestseller.

BERLIN — Edgar Hilsenrath, a German-Jewish writer
whose fictional account of the
Holocaust from the perspective
of a Nazi perpetrator became a

a coverup of Iran’s role in the
bombing of the AMIA Jewish

It has fostered the birth of

or Ruby Chan, the daughter of
Chinese immigrants, CommonWealth Kitchen has been “a godsend.” The mother of four decided after 25 years as a marketing
professional to turn her family’s
recipe for ginger scallion sauce
into a business, but says, “I had
no idea how to take a concept to
grocery shelves.” CommonWealth
Kitchen offered not only shared
kitchen space but education on
all aspects of how to develop her
dream into Fresh Zen Foods. Today, two years later, the kitchen
also functions as her coproducer, leaving the vivacious entrepreneur more time to branch out into
new markets.
Open since 2014, CommonWealth Kitchen,
which began as a modest, 4,000-square-foot shared
kitchen space in Jamaica Plain (then called CropCircle Kitchen) has fostered the birth of local favorites
from Mei Mei to McCrea’s Candies, has tripled in
size, and expanded the services it offers member
companies. Executive director and cofounder Jen
Faigel describes it as an “economic development organization that is working in the food system. If we
can help entrepreneurs build businesses, we can
create access and wealth,” she says. The roughly 55
businesses that share the kitchen with Fresh Zen are
owned primarily by low-income women, immigrants, and people of color. Drawing on their multiethnic roots, they turn out an impressive variety of
culturally diverse food products.
Chan describes her ginger scallion sauce, made
with fresh ginger, scallions, canola oil, and kosher
salt, as an “Asian-style pesto” that complements
chicken, seafood, and vegetables. When she was a
12-year-old working in her parents’ suburban New
Jersey restaurant, Chan remembers customers asking to buy “that sauce you serve with the dumplings.” Three years ago, when Chan’s then 13-yearold daughter told her, “I think you need to quit your
job and sell sauce,” Chan says she “felt like the universe was telling me something.”
She sells the sauce at several area markets, online, and to institutions in health care and higher
education. “This is the legacy of remembering
where you came from,” she says, noting that her late
father would be “so proud. Nobody would give him
a job and executive chefs are using his sauce.”
Dorchester native Teresa Maynard came to CommonWealth Kitchen nearly three years ago, after
reading about its role in Mei Mei’s creation. Following the birth of her third child, Maynard, who loves
to bake and is allergic to nuts (as is her daughter),
left her job at Harvard University to start a bakery
for others in her community with the allergy. But
she didn’t know how to begin. When she got to
CommonWealth Kitchen, program manager Roz
Freeman suggested she take the kitchen’s new 13week food business start-up class. According to Faigel, the staff created the course shortly after the
kitchen opened, when they realized that most business owners came in knowing next to nothing about
permitting, licensing, insurance, packaging and labeling, and other essential aspects of operating a
food business.
Maynard launched Sweet Teez Bakery, making
nut-free cakes, cupcakes, pies, and brownies, in November 2016. Inspired by her Jamaican family of
home bakers, Maynard produces sweets that inCOMMONWEALTH, Page G6

RUBY CHAN, founder and CEO of Fresh Zen Foods
It unfolds
the same way,
year after year:
You vow to eat
mindfully —
less takeout, more meals at home. You’ll
pack your kids’ lunches every morning,
you say. You’ll cook on Sundays for the
week, you promise. But by February,
your crockpot is dusty and your crisper
contains one lone package of wilted salad in a bag.
Here are some (rational, actionable)
tips from the experts on how to eat well
all year long, no matter what your dining persona.
If you . . . want to shed pounds
Stop resolving to “lose weight.”
Brookline-based registered dietitian
Kate Sweeney asks clients to dig deeper
to define what this goal really means.
“I have clients whose parents told
them that they need to ‘lose weight’
their whole lives. What does the weight
really represent?” Sweeney asks. “Explore what about your life would be better if you lost weight,” she says.
Do you want to be more active? Do
you want to implement healthier habits,
such as eating breakfast or reducing
snacking? Drill down on precise, actionable goals — which could indeed result
in weight loss — instead of setting a
sweeping resolution.
After all, most people can’t fully control the number on a scale.
“We know genetics, medications,
stress, sleep, menstruation, PMS, and
many other things affect the numbers
on a scale. If you’re eating enough,
drinking enough water, and exercising,
you can fluctuate by 5 to 7 pounds just
in one day,” Sweeney says.
When we equate pounds with health,
we tend to “cut out things from our diet
instead of adding things. For some people, this can turn into disordered eating.
If we restrict things, we think about
them more, and we start to crave,” she
Instead, think about what foods and
activities buoy you.
To support this process, Sweeney recommends these podcasts to her clients:
“Food Psych,” “Love, Food,” “The BodyLove Project,” and “Nutrition Matters.”
‘I went from making 24 cupcakes at home to 240
cupcakes here.’
TERESA MAYNARD, founder of Sweet Teez Bakery
If you’re . . . in a takeout rut
‘[Potential members must] play well with others,
listen and learn; and fit with the community.’
JEN FAIGEL, cofounder and executive director of CommonWealth Kitchen
Set short-term goals. “Form a threeto six-month goal. What do you want
your health to look like? Then, take
small steps rather than drastically reform,” says Boston-based health coach
Kathy Whelan.
Goals should be specific, realistic,
and timed, she says. For example, “By
the end of four months, I will cook at
home with fresh food five nights per
week. For the first week, I’ll cook dinner
two nights per week. It’s all about breaking your goals into small steps,” she says.
Get real. Next, take a hard look at
your calendar. Who has to work late;

A fresh look at a fruit­filled old
favorite: Sidehill Farm jam
Often, we happily eat something for years without stopping to
fully appreciate its goodness. So it
was high time (for me) to take a
fresh look at Sidehill Farm jam.
The little jars with quaint fabric
tops, in flavors such as Wild Blueberry, Red Raspberry, Strawberry
Rhubarb, and Apricot Orange
Marmalade, are produced by a
family-owned Vermont company
that has made jam the old-fashioned way for over 40 years. Just
fruit and sugar. No pectin or preservatives. In fact, the makers
rightly call it “Extra Fruit Jam” because there’s more fruit than sugar; the rich, pure flavor evolves
from long, slow simmering. “It
tastes how jam is supposed to be
made,” says Kristina Naylor, who
owns the company with her husband, Kelt Naylor.
Kelt’s parents, Dot and Ben
Naylor, started the business, making peaching jam, in 1976, and in
2000, Kelt and Kristina took over.
They expanded the business,
moved production to a larger facility in Brattleboro, and pursued
their goal of using more local
fruits, says Kelt. “We mostly work
with farms in New England and
New York state,” he says. The couple makes about 35 different products, including jams ($7 for 9
ounces), marmalades, fruit butters
and pastes, and a tantalizing topping called Vermont Maple Apple
Drizzle. The fabric tops are “our
signature look,” says Kristina, explaining that it harkens back to a
time when great-grandmothers
made jam this way. (The fabric
kept dust off the tops of jars stored
in musty cellars.) Sometimes the
good ol’ days were just that . . . or
at least the jam was.

A nightcap to keep
the conversation going
A nightcap is perhaps best explained the way Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart defined — or
failed to define — pornography in
the landmark 1964 ruling: It’s tough
to distinguish precisely, but, he famously wrote, “I know it when I see
it.” That’s the approach that author
Kara Newman appears to have taken in putting together “Nightcap.”
The volume, which came out in October, features 40 recipes, most of
them created by American bartenders, but when I asked Newman
what, exactly, makes a nightcap a
nightcap, she paused.
“It should be something to close
out an evening, and there are different ways to do that. The drinks that
I felt fit nightcap mold best were
generally ones made with aged spirits — whiskey, brandy, reposado tequila. But it’s not hard and fast,” she
told me. “I was leaning on age because those spirits are warming,
comforting, and often have caramel
and spiced tones. They lend themselves to an end-of-evening pour.”
She also recalls something bartenders told her when she was writing the book, a revealing linguistic
stipulation: A nightcap shouldn’t
end in “s.” Its sole purpose is to put a
stop to the proceeding and like a period or question mark, you don’t
continue a sentence once it’s used.
The book is divided into chapters
like “To Send You off to Sleep,”
which offers light tipples that provide a gentle kiss goodnight, and “To
Keep the Conversation Going,” featuring burly, spiritous drinks for a
gradual finale, like the Flapjack OldFashioned, Newman’s own riff on
the quintessential classic cocktail
that employs maple syrup as the
sweetener. It’s sure to usher in
dreams of New England coziness.

Braised escarole and white beans
Serves 4
When you’ve sworn off high-calorie meals but still long for comfort food on cold
nights, turn to this vegetarian braise. Escarole resembles an ordinary head of lettuce
but is actually a member of the chicory family, along with the more familiar endive
and radicchio. It has a pleasing, slightly bitter flavor and holds up well during cooking. Simmer the leaves in vegetable stock with garlic, herbs, and canned cannellini
beans (don’t rinse them before adding to the pot because the bean liquid that clings
to them adds body to the dish). Once the greens are tender, finish the dish with grated lemon rind to add a little acidity. Serve with a crusty loaf to mop up the juices.

the next batch, and stir until all the leaves wilt. Repeat with any remaining greens.

Raia orders two appetizers, one
healthy, maybe with a herb- or yogurtbased sauce. He eats the healthier one
first, to fill up, and then treats his richer appetizer as an entrée. The portion

Dinner with a chef, now a friend, in Lisbon
By Necee Regis
Top to bottom: Caldeirada, a traditional fish stew, is
served; Ricardo Dias Felner prepares Portuguese dishes in
his home; ingredients of the fish stew are layered in a bowl;
garlicky baby clams were part of the meal; a pre-meal snack
of local cheeses and chorizo along with Sagres beer.
On an unseasonably warm
fall evening in Lisbon, our driver dropped my two travel buddies and me off at an unobtrusive building in Alvalade, a leafy
residential neighborhood far
from the usual tourist destinations. Once buzzed into the lobby, we squeezed into the elevator and ascended to a bright
apartment where we were welcomed with hugs and mini bottles of Sagres beer.
In the open kitchen — with
shelves of cookbooks and a window offering rooftop views —
we snacked on a trio of unpasteurized cheeses, from a sweet
and cr e amy Azor ean cow s
cheese to sharp and nutty sheep
milk varieties from nearby villages. We chatted about olive oil
and chorizo, politics and crazy
weather patterns, our work and
our families — the usual banter
of friends who gather to cook
and dine together. Except in
this instance, it was the first
time meeting our host.
In a twist on the trend to go
shopping with a restaurant or
hotel chef followed by a cooking
class in a commercial kitchen,
my friends and I were connected with a local chef for a class
and meal in his home. This was
arranged though Cox & Kings, a
tour company that pairs travelers with experiences that interest them. For us, that meant culinary-themed expeditions. In
my case, it was an extra treat
(and surprise) because the chef
turned out to be Ricardo Dias
Felner, a former political journalist who got hooked on the
food world, became a restaurant critic, and was editor in
chief of Time Out Lisboa and
Time Out Porto magazines.
Now a freelance writer and
editor, Felner also leads food
tours and teaches cooking
classes of traditional Portuguese dishes. He doesn’t refer
to himself as a “chef,” saying he
simply confers with chefs and
studies cookbooks. And, certainly, he’s informed by his Portuguese heritage, teaching
about the foods that he grew up
eating. (Felner’s blog, The Man
Who Ate Everything, can be
translated on his Facebook
oHomemQueComiaTudo/ )
On our menu was a first
course of clams Bulhao Pato
style, named after a 19th-centur y poet who is said to have
loved the dish. But first we were
tasked with prepping items for
our main course, Caldeirada, a
traditional fish stew.
Felner had shopped at the
local market in Avalade — his
favorite in all of Lisbon — and
showed us a bowl of glistening
salted fish ready for the pot.
The fish had not been fileted,
he explained, because the skins
and bones add flavor. There
were plump sardines (minus
heads and tails), and chunks of
conger eel, monkfish and skate.
“I buy the monkfish to get
the liver. It’s the foie gras of the
sea,” said Felner. (Indeed, he
later sautéed it in olive oil to
caramelize, for an appetizer. It
tasted like, well, liver.)
organic cloves and a generous
handful of cilantro. They
opened in minutes, and were
scooped into a glass serving
bowl. We sat at a long wood table in the kitchen, eating the
salty-sweet-garlicky bivalves
while the stew simmered, and
the wine and conversation
A little over an hour later,
Felner declared the stew was
“The potatoes can’t be sliced
too thick or they won’t cook.
When the potatoes are done, it’s
Felner filled our bowls with
steaming golden broth and succulent morsels of fish laced
with bites of sweet bell peppers
and mellow potato rounds.
Somehow, the magic melding
had worked. The stew was an
ambrosial meal, a simple peasant dish worthy of kings.
And dessert? Felner had
purchased Lisbon’s iconic egg
tarts, pastel de nata, from his
favorite bakery. The creamy
custards had notes of cinnamon, and were the perfect accompaniment to the 50-yearold port wine poured from an
enormous basket-wrapped bottle.
As the evening wound
down, Felner’s wife and children returned, and we met the
entire family. After hugs and
bedtime kisses to the kids, it
was time to head back to our
hotel at the Four Seasons. Of all
our subsequent travels, this was
the highlight of my trip because
— for one night — I didn’t feel
like a tourist. I was part of the

The surprising thing about
the stew was not the ingredients, but the preparation.
“We do it in layers,” said Felner.
And so we layered all the
raw elements in a deep, wide
stovetop pan, in this specific order: olive oil, rounds of sliced
onions, crushed piri piri chilies,
rounds of sliced tomatoes,
spears of red bell peppers, salt,
chopped garlic, peeled and
sliced potatoes, sprigs of parsley, bay leaves, salt and pepper.
Felner turned the flame to
medium heat, allowing the onions on the bottom to soften.
Five minutes later, he splashed
in some apple cider vinegar,
piled on the fish, drizzled with
more oil, and added almost a
bottle of white wine. (Vinho
Verde, of course, which we were
now also drinking.)
Once the liquids heated up,
the flame was lowered, and a
glass lid sealed the simmering
broth. Nothing was stirred or
mixed, although Felner shook
the pan slightly, loosening the
onions to keep them from sticking. It reminded me of layering
lasagna — with uncooked ingredients — and hoping for a magical melding of tastes and tex-
tures. Would it work? I was curious to find out.
While the stew cooked, we
turned our attention to the
ameijoa boa, baby clams.
“These clams are all about
the garlic and coriander,” said
Felner, noting that Portugal is
the only Mediterranean country to use cilantro in traditional
“And you have to use good
garlic. If it’s too old it can spoil,
and be the enemy of the chef.”

Commonwealth Kitchen shares recipe for success
Continued from Page G1
clude “tipsy” rum cake, a customer favorite, along with chocolate dream
and lemon delight cupcakes, and a
range of fruit pies. CommonWealth
Kitchen executive chef Brad Stevens
helped her scale up production. “I
went from making 24 cupcakes at
home to 240 cupcakes here,” she says.
Last fall Maynard received a large
pie order from Whole Foods that
pushed her to her limits and over the
line to profitability. “I was terrified,”
she says, “but Jen [Faigel] said, ‘You’ll
never know what you can do until you
do it.’ ” Family, friends, and CommonWealth Kitchen colleagues pitched in
to help fill the massive order.
“Having this team of people, the
other entrepreneurs, really helps,”
Maynard says, noting that she and
Heather Yunger, of Top Shelf Cookies,
comprise “our little bakers’ union.” She
also cites Celeste Croxton-Tate, of Lyndigo Spice, as “a real mentor.”
A Boston police officer for 23 years,
Croxton-Tate turns to the kitchen to release job stress. She works the midnight shift, 11:45 to 7:30 a.m., leaving
days free to cook. In 2006, encouraged
by friends and family, the Roxbury native, who raised two boys as a single
mother, launched a catering business.
With the 2008 economic downturn,
catering jobs dried up. Friends had always asked Croxton-Tate to sell her
chutneys, intensely flavored and influenced by the Caribbean and Indian
foods she loves. A contact led CroxtonTate to Nuestra Culinary Ventures in
Jamaica Plain (precursor to CropCircle
Kitchen), where she began to produce
them on a larger scale. When that
kitchen closed, Lyndigo Spice moved
to CommonWealth Kitchen, and Croxton-Tate expanded the line to include
relishes, fruit spreads, and spice
blends, all of which can be used in
cooking or as condiments. She sells
them at farmers’ markets and online.
Because of her family’s dietary requirements, all of Croxton-Tate’s products are low in sugar and sodium. She
uses different cooking techniques,
like smoking fruits and incorporating
different vinegars to add flavor, developing new products at home then
cooking to scale at CommonWealth
Kitchen. “I love the mission [of CommonWealth Kitchen],” she says. “It’s
Fresh Food Generation cofounders Jackson Renshaw and Cassandria Campbell at CommonWealth Kitchen.
producing a lot of jobs for people.”
“We basically stalked Jen [Faigel]”
to get into CommonWealth Kitchen,
says Fresh Food Generation cofounder
Jackson Renshaw. “We were one of the
first tenants,” adds his partner, Cassandria Campbell. “We would not have
the company if we did not have the
support of CommonWealth Kitchen.”
The application process to get in
is “pretty complicated,” according to
Faigel. Potential members have to
write a simple business plan and demonstrate to the board of directors that
they will be able to “play well with others, listen and learn; and fit with the
community.” They also have to commit to “at least make an effort to hire
locally,” she adds.
Renshaw and Campbell met as high
school students working at The Food
Project, which provided their intro
course to food justice and where food
comes from. After graduate school and
a return to her Roxbury home, Campbell approached Renshaw about starting a business that would provide
healthy food options in her neighborhood. “It clicked one day that [food
trucks] could be used to focus on food
access in low-income neighborhoods,”
Campbell says.
With input from the neighborhoods they would be serving, the pair
decided to focus on Latin American
and Caribbean food — with a healthy
twist. Instead of frying empanadas,
they bake them. They source all ingredients locally and don’t use any processed foods.
Initially Campbell and Renshaw
did all the cooking. Now they have a
chef and only do kitchen duty when it
is extremely busy. Their food truck is at
Dudley Square three days a week and
downtown twice a week. A little over
two years ago the partners opened a
cafe in Dorchester’s Dot House Health
Center that they consider “the heart
and soul of why we started this work,”
according to Renshaw. They also cater
at nonprofits and downtown corporate
offices. “The quality of the food is the
same whether it’s at our cafe or at
someone’s office downtown,” says Renshaw. “We’ve really figured out the
food access thing within our business
That is thanks in large part to CommonWealth Kitchen, which is giving
entrepreneurs access to opportunity
and the rest of us the benefits of their
passion, hard work, and talents.

then you may feel like you have

late and exhausted.
Or, you can brush up on
some little food shopping hacks

Walk on over to that salad
bar and take a good look at it
from an ingredient perspective.
So many prepped f oods to
choose from! Sliced peppers,
diced onions, cubed zucchini,
shredded chicken, cooked
beans, washed baby spinach
leaves, broccoli florets — a
bounty of prepped items, all
ready to turn into a stir fry, vegetable lasagna, frittata, soup —
and sure, maybe even a salad.
And the nice thing is, you can
buy exactly how much of each
item you want.
Next to the whole fruits and
vegetables you can find a section of other prepped produce,
usually uncooked. Shredded
carrots, spiralized sweet potatoes, peeled garlic, shelled peas,
bags of washed salad lettuces,
and so on. I know I’m not alone
when I say that peeling, seeding, and cubing a winter squash
at the end of a busy day can feel
like a real obstacle to dinner,
but a container of peeled, cubed
squash is a game changer.
Cold, warm right out of the
container, or reheated, there
are few supermarket gifts as
happy-making as a rotisserie
chicken. Add a salad and something starchy and you are done.
BUT shred up that meat and
you have a springboard for a bazillion other dinners: chicken
salad, quesadillas, enchiladas
and burritos, soups, stir fries,
casseroles. I buy a rotisserie
chicken often because I know
that it will ge t me to some
chicken dinner in the coming
days, and usually a different
one every week.

definitely saves money, and offers you some nice whole-food
choices. But it can also save you
time once you get it home. Decant all of your bulk items —
quinoa, lentils, rice, oatmeal —
into containers, preferably clear
ones, and label them. Organize
them by category in your cabinets or pantry closet — for example, whole grains, cereals,
baking ingredients. Then when
you are ready for them, there
they will be, easy to find and
easy to access. It’s also easy to
see when you are running low
on any of them.
Yes, you will want a carton
of ice cream and maybe a frozen pizza for backup, but there
are so many ingredients and
meal components in the freezer aisle that can help you get
dinner on the table faster. Frozen vegetables are of really high
quality, often quite economical, cook up super quickly, and
don’t have to be defrosted before using. Peas, corn, edamame — all of these are quick
ways to get vegetables onto the
plate or into a dish. Many now
come in microwavable pouches.

Revelation of another child angers Dad
Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg (pictured presenting at the
2018 Emmy Awards) host the 2019 Golden Globes.
Awards season ramps up with
Sunday’s Golden Globes
Oh wait, you thought those year-end Top 10s and critics-group
awards marked the end of 2018 in pop culture? Nope, sorry. In a
way we’ve only just begun.
This Sunday, the Golden Globe Awards are going to put all Oscar conversations into fifth gear. As far as the TV categories go, the
Golden Globes are close to meaningless. But in terms of movies,
the Globes can highlight certain films for Oscar consideration.
They can have an impact on Oscar voters.
The Globes telecast, Sunday at 8 p.m. on NBC, can be like a long
— a very, very long — “For Your Consideration” ad.
I’m assuming that “A Star Is Born” will take home a number of
prizes. I think it’s seriously overrated, but it’s also bait for the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, that small, random group that already gave Lady Gaga an undeserved statue for “American Horror
Story.” But what if Melissa McCarthy wins best actress in a drama
for her subtle work in “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” That could
change up expectations for the Oscars (whose nominations will be
announced on Jan. 22, before the Feb. 24 ceremony).
While the Oscar telecast still has no one at the helm after the
Kevin Hart debacle, the Globes will be hosted by Sandra Oh and
Andy Samberg — two endearing, amusing actors who met while
presenting together at the Emmys last year. Samberg has a touch of
experience: He hosted the Emmys solo in 2015.
Q. I am one of the many who have found
a half-sibling through DNA testing. The
birth mother never told my father that
she was pregnant, and the child was put
up for adoption over 50 years ago.
I told my dad about this and he reacted by getting angry and stopping the
conversation by telling me to not have
contact with the new half-sibling. I gave
it a few months and gently brought it up
again, only to be shut down right away.
He does not wish to discuss it. I was going to ask him to tell my sibling that we
have a newly discovered half-sibling out
there, but I know that is out of the question.
I am e xcited about my ne w relative and would like to meet and get to
know them. I wish my dad would be
open to discussing this. Before moving
forward, I would like to tell my other sibling about our new half-sibling. I am not
sure if they will share my excitement but
then they can decide if they’d like to pursue a relationship as well. I worry that I
am going behind my dad’s back and he’ll
be furious that I have shared his secret.
The cat is already out of the bag; all it
would take is another relative to take a
DNA test for someone else to tell my sibling.
I am feeling quite anxious about having to keep this a secret. How do I tell my
sibling that we have a half-sibling if our
father is not open to discussing this? I’d
like to move forward.
A. Your father had no knowledge of this
child he fathered, so the existence of
your half-sibling has not been a long-

Q. Thank you for your literacy campaign,
promoting the idea of giving books to
children at Christmastime.
Ever since my three daughters were
babies, our tradition has been to give a
book on the first night of Hanukkah.
The kids are now between the ages of
18 and 25, and they still anticipate their
first night book.
Even though the authors have evolved
from Sandra Boynton and Dr. Seuss to
Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Lin-Manuel
Miranda, I have nurtured their literacy
and love of books, which I hope they pass
to their own children someday.
A. Ever since announcing my annual
Book on Every Bed literacy campaign, I
have been flooded with beautiful literacy
stories. Reading them is a warm and
wonderful way to get through these dark,
cold days. Your story is lovely.

Q. I believe my husband is cheating on
me. I went through his phone once and
he had another girl’s naked picture on it.
He is also on a dating website talking
to other girls.
Amy, he works very long hours and
comes home extremely exhausted.
He is a delivery driver, and I believe
he may be delivering more than just
He hardly looks at me or talks to me
anymore, and our sex life has been devastating. What should I do? Please help.
A. Instincts are powerful. But you also
seem to have ample evidence of your
husband’s extracurricular activities. If
your husband is having sex with random
people, you should get tested for STDs.
Surely the holiday season was an especially busy time for your package-toting Casanova. Now it’s your turn. You
should schedule a special delivery: Hand
him an ultimatum.
You two need to talk, urgently, about
your relationship. And then you have a
tough decision to make. Marriages can
recover from infidelity — or suspected
infidelity. But you can’t recover without
communication and trust.
Wednesday January 2, 2019
held secret. Don’t hold this as a secret
Your father’s response to this is completely understandable. He feels betrayed and, of course, he is unhappy
about it. He does not want to face the imponderable complications of this possible relationship. He assumes it will upend your family, but, if anecdotal evidence I’ve collected on DNA discoveries
is accurate, the toughest part of the experience is the anticipation. Your father
will not give you permission to pursue
this. Understand it and forgive him for
his own reaction.
I suggest you take this in discreet
stages. Keep your own expectations modest. After you make some initial contact
with your half-sibling, tell your father
that you are going to inform your other
sibling. Reassure your father every step
of the way, and if he refuses to discuss it,
proceed on your own.
