"Cut Loose the Shackles of the Past": U.S. and Cuba Announce a New Dawn in Diplomatic Relations

President Obama and Cuban President Raúl Castro announced Wednesday that the United States will restore full diplomatic relations with Cuba for the first time in more than half a century. The historic deal will include the opening of a U.S. embassy in Havana and comes with a prisoner exchange. Live from Cuba, we go to Havana for reaction from Peter Kornbluh, director of the Cuba Documentation Project at the National Security Archive at George Washington University. "Finally after 55 years, an element of sanity and effectiveness and modernization has arrived to the insane U.S. policy that U.S. presidents have been pursuing towards Cuba or all these years," Kornbluh says. He is the co-author of the book, "Back Channel to Cuba: The Hidden History of Negotiations between Washington and Havana."

Troy McClain, Look Beyond the Obvious, December 9, 2014

Cardinal Points would like to welcome Troy McClain, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist, to our show. “Troy begins the show by sharing how a country boy from Idaho was able to create so much  success in his life. Troy shares how his story is much different from many who were groomed for success. “My Mother groomed me for survival.” “My Mother was a little rough around the edges.” She was a bouncer in a bar and a truck driver. She always painted the picture of the glass half full and not half empty. “She wanted me to see the gold and greatness within.” Troy’s adopted “kid sister” is profoundly deaf and developmentally delayed. Troy credits his Mom for teaching him to “look beyond the obvious.” In regards to Troy’s sister his Mom stated, “who says you have to listen with your ears when you can hear with your heart.” Troy has said on many occasions, “the best way to get ahead is to give back.” He never forgets where he came from. He remembers when he was young receiving hand me down clothes. “What a blessing to give just to give” and take part in somebody else’s success. Troy asks the poignant question, “how do you give when you got nothing.” “You can give smile.” “You can treat a human being like a human being and that’s the gift of giving.” When we’re willing to give it comes back to us tenfold. Troy then discusses the Buddy Cruise, a 501c3 non-profit that promotes awareness, inclusion and education to the special needs community and their families. 86% of families with a member who are special needs never take a vacation. The Buddy Cruise, a annual cruise from 5 to 7 days in duration, started with 6 families at it’s inception to 228 last year. It is a vacation of a life time with trained and certified educators and facilitators addressing a wide range of disability related topics. “We’re really trying to promote and teach acceptance of differences of all kinds.” It also sounds like a great opportunity for participants to rest, relax and have fun. Troy reminds us to look at life as opportunities not obstacles (ONO). Some of the keys to turning obstacles into opportunities are: 1) Retrain your brain, change your paradigm, 2) From As A Man Thinketh by James Allen: You have to believe that your brain is a garden so whatever you plant in the form of thoughts will grow.

Watch your Thoughts, for they become Words

Watch your Words, for they become Actions

Watch your Actions, for they become Habits

Watch your Habits, for they become Character

Watch your Character, for it becomes your Destiny

Troy shares a magical incident that occurred in June 2013 at a Global Information Network (GIN) event in Washington DC. GIN members in a “wave of giving” donated money to support the Buddy Cruise. GIN was established by visionary Mr. Kevin Trudeau in 2009. This club provides premier training courses, a curriculum for creating success and the ability to surround yourself with a social network of like-minded people from all over the world. It’s main intention is the betterment of our planet. “Our ultimate goal is to educate, inspire, uplift and serve everyone around us.” Troy has recently taken over as the CEO of this life changing club. It’s about collaboration not competition. Troy reminds us to believe in our dreams and dream bigger, dream extreme. As Troy’s Mom has said “You have to aim for the sky.” Troy states “if you don’t set goals, if you don’t have big dreams nothing will change in your life.” He recently attended Ed Foreman and Earlene Vining’s 3 day Successful Life Course. The golden nugget he received from that course was that he had to put the success principles he learned there into practice. “Practice what you preach, practice what you’re being taught.” Troy believes “to be thankful, grateful and appreciative is everything.” When asked the question what is the most important thing in your life Troy replies, “my faith, belief and principles.” “The next thing is my family.” It’s all about love. “You have to love yourself.” “It boils down to LOVE.”

Etymologically Philanthropy means “love of humanity” in the sense of caring, nourishing, developing and enhancing “what it is to be human.” Troy McClain lives this definition and it was a gift to have him as my guest.

The Lure of Immortality

Would you want to live forever? It's a tempting notion that has been explored and imagined for centuries. Immortality may be desirable, but it may also be that death is a significant part of what gives meaning to life. So what would a society of immortal individuals look like? What might some of the challenges or rewards of an immortal life be? How would living forever affect our relationships with one another, our life goals, or simply the way we perceive time? Would the impacts of immortality ultimately be beneficial or detrimental to us?

Heart Medication Digoxin Linked to Higher Risk of Death for Some

    By Steven Reinberg, HealthDay News

Increase seen in people with certain abnormal heart rhythms, study finds.

Digoxin, a drug that's been used to treat heart problems for about 200 years, might increase the risk of dying in certain patients.

New research suggests that for people who have a particular type of irregular heart rhythm, called atrial fibrillation, taking the drug digoxin may increase the risk of dying by more than 20 percent.

"We found in 122,000 patients with atrial fibrillation, those treated with digoxin were more likely to die [during the study period] than patients prescribed other medications," said lead researcher Dr. Mintu Turakhia, an assistant professor of cardiology at Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, Calif.

Although the current research found an association between the drug digoxin and a higher risk of death for people with atrial fibrillation or flutter, the study does not show that the drug caused the higher risk of death.

RELATED: 7 Hidden Dangers for People With Atrial Fibrillation

However, Turakhia thinks the risk may be the result of digoxin causing other dangerous abnormal heart rhythms.

"Even though you are being given a drug to slow down your heart rate in atrial fibrillation, it may be causing other problems with your heart that may increase the risk of death," he said.

Digoxin is made from extracts of the foxglove plant, also called digitalis. It has long been a standard treatment for atrial fibrillation, according to background information in the study.

Given that there are other treatments for atrial fibrillation, Turakhia wonders why digoxin should be the treatment of choice for these patients. "There are other safer drugs out there," he said.

Safer alternatives may include drugs known as beta-blockers or calcium channel blockers, Turakhia said. "These have never been tied to an increased risk of death or major concerns with safety," he said.

Turakhia thinks patients taking digoxin for atrial fibrillation should talk with their doctor about possibly switching to another medication.

    A debate over the merits of eating less salt escalated when one of the most comprehensive studies yet suggested cutting back on sodium too much actually poses health hazards

Sodium is an essential nutrient

Sodium is the main component of salt but they are not the same thing. Salt’s chemical name is sodium chloride. Sodium regulates blood pressure and blood volume and affects other such crucial processes as muscle and nerve function.

High levels are associated with cardiovascular risk

New research suggests intake over 6,000 milligrams a day is associated with increased risk of death, heart attack, stroke and heart failure. And there is broad consensus that people with high levels of dietary sodium should reduce it, especially if they have high blood pressure.
Current guidelines call for very low levels

U.S. guidelines promoted by the Food and Drug Administration and other agencies call for daily consumption lower than 2,300 milligrams. The American Heart Association recommends a 1,500-milligram daily cap in sodium intake.

Americans eat a lot of sodium

Current average daily intake in the U.S. is 3,400 milligrams, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 75% of dietary sodium comes from food you buy in supermarkets or restaurants; another 12% comes naturally in food; the rest is from the salt shaker.

Reducing intake to low levels hasn’t been shown to produce a benefit

A new global study from Canadian researchers suggests daily intake below 3,000 milligrams is associated with a 27% higher risk of death or serious cardiovascular event within nearly four years.  A report last year from the Institute of Medicine failed to find evidence that compliance with intake below 2,300 milligrams reduces risk of major problems from cardiovascular disease.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo To Ban Fracking In New York State

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) will ban hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking, in his state, officials announced Wednesday.

"I will be bound by what the experts say," Cuomo said at a press conference.

In his remarks at the conference, Cuomo lamented the emotionally charged nature of the debate over fracking, a process that uses a high-pressure blast of water, sand and chemicals to tap into natural gas reserves contained in shale formations. "Let's bring the emotion down and let's ask the qualified experts," said Cuomo, who quickly turned the press conference over to state health and environmental officials.

The officials said the potential health and environmental impacts are too great to allow fracking to proceed in the state at this time, and pointed to a dearth of studies regarding the long-term safety of hydraulic fracturing. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation will issue a legally binding, supplemental environmental impact statement next year outlining its findings on the issue.

The potential adverse impacts of fracking are “widespread," DEC Commissioner Joseph Martens said at the press conference. He added that the prospects for fracking in New York are "uncertain at best," and the economic benefits are "far lower than originally forecasted."

Acting Health Commissioner Dr. Howard Zucker said that there are no longitudinal studies that provide an authoritative picture of the health impacts of fracking. The “bona fide scientific literature is only now emerging," he said.

Zucker said that in other states where fracking is already happening, he found that state health commissioners "weren't even at the table" when decisions about the process were made.

“I cannot support high-volume hydraulic fracturing in the great state of New York,” he added, noting that he would not live in a community that allows fracking and would not want his children to play in the soil in such a place.

Cuomo agreed with that conclusion.

"I think it’s our responsibility to develop an alternative … for safe, clean economic development,” the governor said.

The state of New York has had a moratorium on fracking since officials decided in 2008 that more research was needed. Several towns in New York have used zoning ordinances to ban fracking, a practice which was upheld by the state Court of Appeals earlier this year.

Wednesday's announcement is the culmination of a six-year review process by the DEC, including a study from the New York State Department of Health. The results of this review were expected to be released earlier this year, but were delayed until after the November election, in which Cuomo successfully sought a second term.

Cuomo dodged a question on fracking at the New York gubernatorial debate in October. "I am not a scientist," he said. "Let the scientists decide." Cuomo said he would wait for the results of the state's study: "What the experts say is right, that is what I will do."

Earlier in October, reports revealed that New York state officials had edited the text of a federal study about fracking's impact on water, in addition to delaying the study's release. Some descriptions of environmental and health risks were "played down or removed," Capital New York reported.

The activist group New Yorkers Against Fracking issued a statement on Wednesday praising Cuomo's decision. “On behalf of millions of New Yorkers, we would like to thank the Governor for his leadership and keeping his word in listening to the science and protecting the health and safety of New Yorkers over the special interests of the oil and gas industry," the group said.

The New York State Petroleum Council, a program of The American Petroleum Institute, issued a statement Wednesday calling the decision "the wrong direction for New York." The group's executive director, Karen Moreau, called it a "politically motivated and equally misinformed ban on a proven technology."

Court: Tesla Motors can sell directly to buyers
Posted: Sep 15, 2014 2:45 PM EST Updated: Sep 15, 2014 2:57 PM EST

BOSTON (AP) - The highest court in Massachusetts has thrown out a lawsuit aimed at blocking Tesla Motors from selling its electric cars directly to consumers.

The Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association had sought to prevent the direct sales, citing a state law designed to block car dealers from abuses by car manufacturers.

The Supreme Judicial Court unanimously ruled Monday that the association and two dealers - Herb Connolly Chevrolet and Fisker Norwood - didn't have legal standing to bring the case.

The court said Natick has since given Tesla a license to operate a sales office at the Natick Mall.

World's Largest Ice Sheets Melting At Fastest Rate Ever Recorded

Greenland and Antarctica are home to the two largest ice sheets in the world, and a new report released Wednesday says that they are contributing to sea level rise twice as much as they were just five years ago.

Using the European Space Agency's CryoSat 2 satellite, the Alfred Wegener Institute from Germany has found that western Antarctica and Greenland are losing massive amounts of ice.

"Combined, the two ice sheets are thinning at a rate of 500 cubic kilometres per year," said glaciologist Dr. Angelika Humbert, one of the authors of the AWI study, in a press release. "That is the highest speed observed since altimetry satellite records began about 20 years ago."

The report, published in the online magazine The Cryosphere, says the CryoSat 2 satellite measured over 200 million elevation data points in Antarctica and 14.3 million in Greenland to track the loss of ice mass over the last several years. "When we compare the current data with those from the ICESat satellite from the year 2009, the volume loss in Greenland has doubled since then," said Humbert. "The loss of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has in the same time span increased by a factor of three."

Somewhat encouragingly, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet is gaining mass. However, those gains are very modest and don't make up for the loss of ice in West Antarctica and Greenland. Greenland is losing 350 cubic kilometers of ice annually, mostly from its southwestern coast, and accounts for almost 75 percent of the total volume lost each year. Together, the flows from Antarctica and Greenland could cover the entire Chicagoland area with 600 meters of ice each year.


Vermont highlights more electric car chargers
Posted: Jul 07, 2014 10:41 AM EST Updated: Jul 07, 2014 10:41 AM EST

MIDDLESEX, Vt. (AP) - It's getting easier to drive an electric vehicle through Vermont between Montreal and Boston.

Top state officials and the head of the state's largest electric utility inaugurated a new vehicle charging station in Middlesex, halfway between the Canadian border and New Hampshire.

One of two stations can charge a car nearly full in 45 minutes.

Gov. Peter Shumlin says it's a big step toward the creation of an electric vehicle corridor between Montreal and Boston.

Officials say electric vehicles cost the equivalent of about a dollar a gallon to drive.

Access to a full network of charging stations is critical since many electric-only vehicles have a short range.

Currently there are 27 charging stations in Vermont with another 15 planned.


North Dakota's Latest Fracking Problem

North Dakota is forced to burn off 30% of the natural gas produced from fracking in the Bakken Shale as infrastructure and regulations struggle to keep pace with its oil boom.

Food-Waste Recycling Faces Hiccups

More states want to recycle their food waste instead of dumping it into landfills, but they have run into a snag: The infrastructure needed to turn huge quantities of table scraps into fertilizer or electricity isn't ready.

Tesla's Clever Patent Move Is Already Paying Off

Tesla may already be reaping the rewards of freeing up its patents.

Four days after CEO Elon Musk offered most of his company’s patents to rivals in hopes of cultivating a bigger electric car market, Nissan and BMW are “keen on talks” to cooperate on charging networks, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.

That pretty much validates why the Silicon Valley company freed up its patents in the first place: Tesla wants its superchargers to become the industry standard.

That way, other companies will use and enlarge Tesla's existing network of 97 charging stations that currently dot a path across the continental United States, making it more and more feasible to swap fuel-burning cars for battery-electric ones, even for long-distance travel.

White House Plans Another Big Climate Push

WASHINGTON -– One year after President Barack Obama rolled out his climate change action plan, the administration is putting fresh emphasis on its environmental agenda.

The White House plans to host two roundtable discussions this week on the economic threats that climate change poses and the "opportunities to overcome those risks," a White House official said in an email Monday night, which emphasized the potential costs of not addressing planet-warming emissions.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and White House leaders also plan to meet with billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer and former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson on Wednesday to discuss a report they will release this week titled, "Risky Business," which assess the economic costs of climate change. Steyer and Paulson are the co-chairs for the report.

Steyer, a former hedge fund manager turned environmental activist, has pledged to spend $100 million backing political candidates who support action on climate change through his political group, NextGen Climate Action. He has focused much of his political work on opposing the Keystone XL pipeline, which the Obama administration is considering for possible approval.

Lew, White House advisers John Podesta and Valerie Jarrett, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration head Kathryn Sullivan and Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate on Tuesday will meet with insurance industry representatives on climate impacts.

Obama himself will address the annual dinner of the League of Conservation Voters on Wednesday night. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz and Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell plan to speak earlier Wednesday at an event sponsored by the League of Conservation Voters. The group is the biggest electoral spender among environmental groups.

 Ridley Scott's rendering of the Book of Exodus serves up most of the spectacular highlights of the biblical tale

2014 marks the resurgence of the Old Testament at the movies. After Darren Aronofsky turned to Genesis to unleash Noah, Ridley Scott moves forward to the Book of Exodus to revisit the story of Moses. Exodus: Gods and Kings is this century’s answer to Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments, but it already looks to be more controversial than that pious 1956 opus. Spectacularly filmed and intermittently well acted, though not quite as much campy fun as the DeMille version, the picture looks likely to attract a substantial audience even if some religious leaders voice protests.

US probe links N. Korea to Sony hacking

WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal investigators have now connected the hacking of Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc. to North Korea, a U.S. official said Wednesday, though it remained unclear how the federal government would respond to a break-in that exposed sensitive documents and ultimately led to terrorist threats against moviegoers.

The official, who said a more formal statement might come soon, spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to openly discuss an ongoing criminal case. A security professional with knowledge of the breach also said investigators had strong circumstantial evidence and technical commonalities pointing to North Korea.

Until Wednesday, the Obama administration had been saying it was not immediately clear who might have been responsible for the computer break-in. North Korea has publicly denied it was involved, though it did issue a statement earlier this month describing the hack as a "righteous deed."

How revived ties with Cuba came to be

WASHINGTON (AP) - Fresh off his 2012 re-election victory, President Barack Obama summoned senior advisers to a series of meetings, asking them to "think big" about a second-term agenda, including the possibilities of new starts with long-standing U.S. foes such as Iran and Cuba. Two years later, after painstaking secret diplomacy on separate but surprisingly similar tracks, efforts with Tehran and Havana are in full swing.

The nuclear negotiations with Iran continue and are far from a guaranteed success. But Wednesday's announcement that the U.S. and Cuba will normalize relations after more than 50 years of hostility suggests one of the last chapters of the Cold War may be closing.

The U.S. outreach to Cuba started cautiously in 2013 in the early months of Obama's second term, predicated on the idea that no improvement was possible unless the communist government released American contractor Alan Gross, arrested and imprisoned in Cuba on espionage charges.

In their first conversation after Obama named John Kerry his new secretary of state, the two discussed Gross' ongoing incarceration in Cuba and their broader dissatisfaction with America's policy toward the island. Kerry quickly enlisted the assistance of the Vatican, one of the few institutions in the world broadly respected in the U.S. and Cuba. The Roman Catholic Church's help would prove significant.

Behind the scenes, Obama began putting the wheels of his secret diplomacy in motion, according to senior administration officials. They weren't authorized to publicly provide a diplomatic timeline and demanded anonymity.

In spring 2013, the president authorized two senior aides to sit down with representatives of the Cuban government for exploratory talks. It was an effort that roughly coincided with similarly covert discussions Obama was directing in the Middle East between U.S. and Iranian officials over that country's contested nuclear program.

Whereas Muscat, Oman, and Geneva, Switzerland, served as the venues for Iran negotiations, the Canadian cities of Ottawa and Toronto and Vatican City hosted Cuba talks.

In June of last year, Ben Rhodes, Obama's deputy national security adviser, and Ricardo Zuniga, an adviser on Latin America, traveled to Canada for the first of nine meetings with their Cuban counterparts. Most took place in Canada.

The U.S. officials would not name the Cubans they met with but described them as government officials empowered by Cuban President Raul Castro to talk with the U.S. Canada's government was not directly involved in the negotiations, playing a role of facilitator similar to that of Oman halfway across the world in secret negotiations between the U.S. and Iran.

But earlier this year another powerful mediator would forcefully enter the process with Cuba: Pope Francis.

The first Latin American pontiff raised the possibility of a Cuba rapprochement with Obama in March, when the U.S. president visited the Vatican. Then, in the summer, he sent Obama and Castro letters urging them to end the decades-long freeze.

Kerry, meanwhile, held four telephone calls over the same period with Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez. The calls focused on Gross, senior administration officials said, with Kerry telling the Cubans that if anything happened to the 65-year-old Maryland native their chances of better relations with the U.S. would be over.

At the Vatican this fall, U.S. and Cuban officials worked to finalize the deal that would free Gross and pave the way for a new U.S.-Cuban relationship.

Discussions continued, culminating in Tuesday's 45-minute phone conversation between Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro - the first presidential-level dialogue between the U.S. and Cuba since Castro's older brother Fidel seized power in 1959 and the U.S. embargo of the country began in 1961.

Again, the process was strikingly similar to last year's easing of U.S.-Iran tensions. In that case, Obama and Iranian President Hasan Rouhani held their own telephone call, leading to a historic nuclear agreement and the most engaged discussions between the countries since Iran's 1979 Islamic Revolution.

As Obama spoke on the telephone with Cuba's leader, Rhodes, Zuniga and a handful of other top advisers of the president gathered in the Oval Office.
Sony Cancels Plans To Release 'The Interview'

Sony Pictures will not release "The Interview" on Christmas Day, and the studio has "no further release plans" for the film, this according to a studio spokesperson. It had been speculated that Sony would consider releasing the film either via on-demand services or in theaters at a later date.

Sony's decision caps a whirlwind day, which saw the nation's five biggest theater chains cancel plans to screen "The Interview." Regal Entertainment, AMC Entertainment, Cinemark, Cineplex Entertainment and Carmike Cinemas pulled the comedy following a terror threat made Tuesday by hackers who had attacked Sony Pictures.

"Due to wavering support of the film 'The Interview' by Sony Pictures, as well as the ambiguous nature of any real or perceived security threats, Regal Entertainment Group has decided to delay the opening of the film in our theaters," a representative for Regal said in a statement to The Huffington Post. Sony had previously placed the decision to cancel showings of "The Interview" at the feet of theaters owners.

On Tuesday, the hackers referenced the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in a statement that threatened "the very time and places 'The Interview' be shown." Officials for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security acknowledged they were aware of the threat, but downplayed the likelihood of an incident. Speaking to ABC News on Wednesday, President Barack Obama said people should feel safe about visiting their local theaters.

Boston commuters to go without I-93 HOV lane for part of holiday weeks

BOSTON — You better not pout, you better not cry Boston-bound commuters.

The state Department of Transportation is taking away the high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) or “Zipper Lane” on Interstate 93 for vehicles with multiple occupants for part of the weeks near Christmas and New Year’s Day. The move is designed to better handle heavy holiday traffic at a time when normal commuting patterns are disrupted.

The temporary HOV travel lane is deployed on a portion of the roadway to provide an extra northbound travel lane during the peak morning travel period and an extra southbound lane at night. The lane is created by a barrier deployed and removed by a special vehicle called the “Zipper Truck.”

During the weeks starting Dec. 22 and Dec. 29, the HOV lane will be deployed according to its normal schedule for the morning and evening commuting hours only on Monday and Tuesday. The Zipper Lane will not be in use on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday during either week.

Deploying the lane reduces I-93 by one lane in one direction, and officials said they want to provide as much room for vehicles as possible for holiday travelers and commuters.
Foxboro schools budget to grow because of staff raises


FOXBORO - To pay for 2 percent raises for school staff next year, the preliminary school budget request for next year is up $1.2 million - a 4 percent increase for $31.7 million overall - with no increase in staffing.

With enrollment continuing to fall and technology education a priority, the administration's draft plan presented this week would cut one full-time English and one full-time math teacher at the high school. It would add a full-time district technology integration specialist.

The plan would bump up a half-time elementary math specialist to full-time, and add a part-time middle school music teaching position.

While supportive of technology education, Chairman Bruce Gardner said the board might want to review the proposal to eliminate core subject teaching positions.

"I appreciate the care with which you guys (prepared the budget). Yet the idea of reducing a math or English teacher made my eyes pop out a little bit," Gardner said, adding that he's not necessarily against the tradeoff, but wants to hear more.

The fiscal year 2016 plan would maintain the current level of offerings, and class sizes and special education requirements.

Town officials say they will monitor the state and local revenue picture.

The committee is scheduled Jan. 26 to publicly review and vote on the administration's recommended budget. An advisory committee review of the budget is set for Feb. 11.

Residents have the final say on all town budgets at the May 11 annual town meeting.

Fiscal year 2016 begins on July 1, 2015.

The school budget has gone up about $1 million per year since fiscal year 2008. Enrollment has declined each year, from 2,872 in fiscal year 2011 to a projected 2,707 for 2016.

School Business Manager Bill Yukna said, however, that while officials are unaware of any large housing projects on the drawing board, the school-age population will climb as some older residents, needing less space, sell their houses to young families.

Mansfield agrees to buy power from proposed solar farm

MANSFIELD - Town electric commissioners voted to buy power from a solar facility proposed to be built on Branch Street at a tense meeting Wednesday night.

The vote was 3-2 to move forward with a purchase power agreement, with light board members Frank DelVecchio, Doug Annino and George Dentino voting yes, and Jess Aptowitz, the chairman of the light commission, and Olivier Kozlowski voting no.

Solar projects are exempt from town zoning regulations, but selectmen had the option to reject the project because the electric department is the sole purchaser of the power.

Dentino said commissioners voted on policy, and that the solar facility could go in "by right" if the town agreed to a purchase power agreement.

The vote followed almost two hours of discussion with developers IRG Mansfield, represented by their attorney Edward Valanzola, light commissioners and 10 residents who made public comments, eight of whom voiced concern about the impact of the facility.

Valanzola encouraged commissioners to vote for purchasing energy from the 1.25-megawatt solar farm that will be built on the former Compo Chemicals property at 240 Branch St.

He said solar energy is "green," has little impacts on the town, will save town electric customers about $1 million over 20 years and will grow the tax base by about $29,500.

The developers answered neighbor complaints in a letter to the light board.

In response to concerns a solar farm would bring down property values, IRG Mansfield wrote: "These homes were ... sold to homeowners who knew or should have known that the site would be developed at some point. Any suggestion that the values of the properties will be affected ... is disingenuois and baseless."

Many residents at the meeting took offense to those comments, saying developers are dismissing concerns they think are legitimate, including potential safety hazards, such as glare, noise and aesthetics.

Geoff Mathews of 8 Hemlock Lane also criticized the developers' dependence on solar renewable energy credits, which he said can be unreliable.

Michelle Farley of 18 Lincoln St. said she was disappointed with the vote, arguing chemicals used to wash the solar panels could be harmful to the environment.

Her husband, James Farley, said he didn't agree with the developers' claim that a solar farm wouldn't bring down property values.

"There's not enough data over a multi-decade time span" to support the position, he said.

Julia Camp of 14 Lincoln Road said she was "insulted by the lack of due diligence" and "the lack of trust" between the developers and residents. She complained IRG Mansfield didn't reach out to neighbors for their thoughts on the project.

Town Manager William Ross said the next step is for the town and the developers to sign a purchase power agreement and a development agreement, which will mitigate many of the residents' concerns.

Valanzola said after the vote, "We'll be happy to work with the residents now that we've moved into the next phase and see if we can find some common ground."

AP source: Rays send Myers to Padres in big deal

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Padres acquired outfielder Wil Myers from the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the deal said.

Myers was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2013, when he hit .293 with 13 homers with 53 RBIs with Tampa Bay. But he was limited to 87 games last season due to a right wrist injury, and he hit .222 with six homers and 35 RBIs.

There were multiple reports that Washington also was involved in the deal, but the person would not confirm the Nationals' involvement to The Associated Press. San Diego also receives catcher Ryan Hanigan and minor league pitchers Jose Castillo and Gerardo Reyes in the trade, with catcher Rene Rivera moving from the Padres to Tampa Bay.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced.

The deal comes as the Padres, desperate for a power bat to punch up the worst offense in the majors, try to finalize a trade that would send catcher Yasmani Grandal and two pitchers to the Los Angeles Dodgers for outfielder Matt Kemp and catcher Tim Federowicz.

The Kemp deal is pending physical exams and the commissioner's office approving the Dodgers sending $32 million to the Padres to help offset the $107 million remaining on Kemp's contract.

Brady's arm, legs spark Patriots to division title

So the reluctant rusher took off on a 17-yard scramble that set up a key third-quarter touchdown and sparked the New England Patriots to a 41-13 win over the Miami Dolphins and their sixth straight AFC East title Sunday.

''It was in slow motion,'' Patriots wide receiver Brandon LaFell joked, ''but it was good.''

Good enough to set up LeGarrette Blount's 3-yard touchdown run on the next play and begin a streak of four scoring drives on the Patriots' first four possessions after they led 14-13 at halftime.

''I wasn't in the best mood at that time'' because of New England's poor first half, Brady said.

The star quarterback and his teammates were feeling better after the Patriots (11-3) became the first team in NFL history with 11 division titles in 12 years. They missed only in 2008, when Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opener and Miami won the AFC East.

Headley and Yankees agree to $52M, 4-year deal

NEW YORK (AP) -- Chase Headley is staying with the Yankees, agreeing Monday to a $52 million, four-year contract that signals New York is not counting on Alex Rodriguez to play third base regularly.

Coming off a season-long suspension for violations of baseball's drug agreement and labor contract, Rodriguez is owed $61 million over the final three seasons of his $275 million, 10-year deal. The agreement with Headley is a sign New York plans to shift A-Rod to designated hitter, relegate him to a backup role or perhaps even seek trade offers.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said last month that ''if I signed or traded for a third baseman, that would be my third baseman.''

Rodriguez has not played a full season since 2007 because of leg injuries, operations on both hips and the suspension. The three-time AL MVP turns 40 on July 27.

Word of the day     Listen weekdays at 2pm during Timelesscool .

    audio pronunciation


: a combination of contradictory or incongruous words; broadly : something (such as a concept) that is made up of contradictory or incongruous elements


"That's an oxymoron!" said Joanne, when she heard the DJ describe the song as an "instant classic."

"A 'healthy snack' sounds like an oxymoron. The two words seem to be on opposite ends. But that does not have to be the case." — Karen Miller, The Boston Banner, October 23, 2014


The Greeks exhaustively classified the elements of rhetoric, or effective speech and writing, and gave the name oxymōron, literally "pointed foolishness," to the deliberate juxtaposing of seemingly contradictory words. The roots of oxymoron, oxys meaning "sharp" or "keen" and mōros meaning "foolish," are nearly antonyms themselves, making oxymoron nicely self-descriptive. Oxymoron originally applied to a meaningful paradox condensed into a couple of words, as in "precious bane," "lonely crowd," or "sweet sorrow." Today, however, oxymoron can also refer to unintentional contradictions, like "a plastic glass."
