Rivera dirigen una campaña para
Viviendo tiempos de prueba
una nueva estación de policía
espués de la sangrienta Guerra Civil que sufriera este país hemos vivido en
La Senadora Bárbara L'Italien trajo al presidente
del senado a la ciudad de Lawrence para conseguir el apoyo
para fondos Federales.
Lawrence está más cerca que nunca
para obtener una estación de policía.
La ciudad junto con líderes estatales
están trabajando con Northern Essex
Community College para obtener un edificio
para la seguridad pública valorado en $71
millones que incluirá la nueva estación de
policía y un edificio para entrenamiento
regional dirigido por el colegio comunitario.
Líderes de la ciudad han estado buscando
la forma de reemplazar el anticuado,
estrecho y deteriorado cuartel policial que
ha estado en la calle Lowell por 58 años.
La semana pasada la Senadora L'Italien
invitó al Presidente del Senado Stan
Rosenberg a visitar la ciudad de Lawrence
para conversar con el Presidente de NECC
Lane Glenn, el Alcalde Dan Rivera, el
Representante Estatal Marcos Devers y el
Jefe de la Policía James Fitzpatrick.
El Capitán de la Policía Scott
McNamara le demostró las diferentes áreas
del local policial donde no hay lugar para
entrenamientos, mantener privacidad o
reunirse con el público. El lugar carece de
cosas básicas como de una cafetería, campo
de tiro, laboratorio forense o un salón para
la comunidad para los oficiales reunirse con
los residentes dijo.
"Cualquier persona que haya visitado
la parte de adentro de este edificio sabe el
mal estado en que se encuentra este lugar",
dijo la Senadora L’Italien, presidenta
del Comité Unido de Municipalidades y
Gobierno Regional de la Legislatura. "Los
residentes de Lawrence y los oficiales han
estado esperando por una estación nueva de
policía. La espera ha sido muy larga. La
ciudad necesita y merece una estación de
policía nueva y yo haré todo lo que esté a
mi alcance para que se haga realidad.”
Recientemente, Lawrence recibió
$400,000 del estado para estudiar el
próximo complejo de seguridad pública
con un espacio de 100,000 pies cuadrados.
La ciudad y el colegio necesitarán ayuda
del estado para construir este edificio. El
Presidente del Senado dijo, "Hay mucho
trabajo que hacer para afinar los detalles”,
pero está interesado en esta propuesta. El
Senador Roseberg dijo que le gustaba
la idea de la ciudad trabajar junto con el
colegio comunitario en este proyecto.

Sen. L’Italien, Mayor Rivera lead campaign
for new Lawrence police station
L’Italien brings senate president to city to build
support for state funding
Lawrence may be closer than ever to
finally getting a new police station.
City and state leaders are working
with Northern Essex Community College
to partner on a $71 million public safety
complex that would include a new Lawrence
police station and a regional police training
facility run by the community college.
City leaders have been looking for
a way to replace the existing outdated,
crowded and badly deteriorated 58-year-old
station on Lowell Street for decades.
Lawrence state Sen. Barbara L’Italien
brought Senate President Stan Rosenberg to
the city last week for a meeting at the police
station with NECC President Lane Glenn,
Lawrence police Chief James Fitzpatrick,
Mayor Dan Rivera and state Rep. Marcos
Devers.
Police Captain Scott McNamara gave
the group a tour of the station and explained
it doesn’t have appropriate areas for officers
to train, to maintain important paperwork
and evidence or even to meet with the
public. The facility lacks basic necessities
such as a cafeteria, shooting range, forensic
laboratory or community room for officers
to meet with residents, McNamara said.
“Anyone who has been inside the
Lawrence police station knows how badly
we need a new one,” said Sen. L’Italien,
chairwoman of the Legislature’s Joint
Committee of Municipalities and Regional
Government. “Lawrence residents and the
city’s police officers have been waiting
a long a time for a new police station.
Way too long actually. The city needs and
deserves a new police station and I’m going
to do everything I can to make it happen.”
Lawrence recently received $400,000
from the state to study the proposal for the
100,000 square-foot public safety complex.
The city and college would need major
financial assistance from the state to build
the facility. Sen. President Rosenberg said
there’s still a lot of work to do to fine-tune
the details, but that he is intrigued by the
proposal.
Sen. Rosenberg said he likes the
idea of the city and community college
working together on the project and that he
appreciated their “creativity.”
Sen. L’Italien said she plans to bring
other important state leaders to the station
in the coming weeks and months to build
support for the project.
Despite the city’s financial challenges,
Mayor Rivera said the city plans do
whatever it can to make the project happen,
including paying an amount it can afford.
This (public safety complex) will be
great for Lawrence and the state," Rivera
said.
NECC President Glenn said the
complex would be “a first of its kind” in the
northeast United States.

relativa tranquilidad. Hemos tomado parte activa en dos guerras mundiales
sin que nuestro territorio fuera afectado directamente. Siempre las batallas se
han librado en otras partes del Globo.
Aunque aún existen partes conflictivas en distintos países, últimamente esto ha
cambiado desde el 9/11. Hay grupos que están trabajando arduamente para traer el
terror a nuestras tierras.
La masacre que ocurrió en la Universidad de Garissa en Kenia, aunque los que
claman responsabilidad es un grupo radicado en Somalia, fue llevado a cabo por
cuatro extremistas que, por lo menos uno de ellos era nacional de Kenia, que había
sido reclutado por el grupo extremista Shehab con base en Somalia.
La razón de la masacre de 148 estudiantes fue protestar por el envío de tropas de
Kenia a Somalia para luchar en contra de los extremistas que han tomado posesión de
este último país. Según reportes, entraron a la universidad, separaron a los estudiantes
musulmanes de los cristianos, asesinando a estos últimos.
Según reporta el F.B.I., grupos extremistas islámicos en Siria con vínculos con
Al Qaeda están tratando de identificar, reclutar y entrenar a los estadounidenses y
otros occidentales que han viajado allí para conseguir que se lleven a cabo ataques
cuando regresan a casa, de acuerdo con funcionarios de alto nivel de inteligencia y
contraterrorismo estadounidenses.
Las declaraciones que han hecho dirigentes de estos grupos extremistas han sido
casi siempre dirigidas a la eliminación del Cristianismo. Sabiendo que el 80% de los
ciudadanos de Kenia abrazan esa religión, es encomiable que 148 jóvenes no la hayan
renegado con tal de salvar sus vidas.
En Lawrence, acabamos de llevar a cabo la representación de La Pasión en la
Iglesia Santa María de la Asunción donde vimos al Apóstol Pedro negar que conociera
al Maestro Jesús con tal de salvar su propia vida. Se nos ocurre pensar cuántos de
los que participamos de la Marcha hacia el Calvario haríamos lo mismo dado el caso
extremo que algún día esos bárbaros extremistas pusieran un pié en nuestro territorio.
Living the test of times
A
fter the bloody Civil War suffered by this country, we have lived in relative
peace ever since. We have been actively involved in two world wars without
our territory being directly affected. Battles always have been fought in other
parts of the globe.
Although there are still conflicting parties in different countries, lately this has
changed since 9/11. There are groups that are working hard to bring terror to our
shores.
The slaughter that took place at the University of Garissa in Kenya, even those who
claim responsibility is a group based in Somalia, was carried out for four extremists
that at least one of them was a Kenya national, who had been recruited by the Shehab
militant group based in Somalia.
The reason for the slaughter of 148 students was to protest the sending of troops
from Kenya to Somalia to fight against the extremists who have taken possession of
the latter country. According to reports, they went to a college, separated Muslim
students from Christians, killing them.
As reported by the FBI, Islamic groups in Syria with ties to Al Qaeda are trying
to identify, recruit and train Americans and other Westerners who have traveled
there to get them to carry out attacks when they return home, according to senior US
intelligence and counterterrorism officials.
The statements made by leaders of these extremist groups have almost always
been aimed at the elimination of Christianity. Knowing that 80% of Kenyans embrace
that religion it is praiseworthy that 148 youth did not deny their faith in order to save
their lives.
Lawrence just performed the Passion Play at St. Mary of the Assumption Church,
where we saw Peter the Apostle denying knowing Master Jesus in order to save his
own life. We wonder how many of those who participated in the march to Calvary
would do the same in the extreme case that someday these barbaric extremists ever
place one foot in our territory.

Las quejas sobre el
remolque de autos
Recientemente recibimos un video de
teléfono celular que había sido registrado
en el proceso de remolcar dos coches
de una propiedad privada, pero carecía
de registro o tenían graves daños. En ese
vídeo, que tuvo lugar el 21 de marzo, es
casi ininteligible algunas obscenidades que
alguien gritaba y se atribuyeron a oficial de
policía Carl Farrington. Los autos fueron
remolcados por Coady’s Towing.
Los oficiales de policía son
comúnmente
castigados
o
incluso
suspendidos por faltarle el respeto a la
población civil, así que quería ver cómo el
Departamento de Policía de Lawrence se
ocuparía de esta queja. Solicité un informe
bajo la Ley de Libertad de Información
y me puse a investigar la legalidad de las
acciones del oficial Farrington.
A través del abogado de la ciudad
Charles Boddy y el Departamento de
Servicios de Inspección de la Ciudad,
me enteré de las reglas para mantener los
autos no registrados (incluso en propiedad
privada) y tenía que ver cómo se aplican al
caso que se presenta en ese video.
El 3 de abril recibí del jefe de policía
interino James Fitzpatrick los resultados
de su investigación, confirmando mis
conclusiones. El Oficial Farrington remolcó
esa noche un total de ocho vehículos
alrededor del mismo barrio y escribió en los
tres informes de incidentes separados que,
"Mientras patrullaba la ciudad en busca de
autos sin registrar, vehículos abandonados,
me encontré con este lote sin vallar en..."
seguido de la descripción de los autos que
se encontraban en cada uno.
El Jefe Fitzpatrick pasó a explicar que
el video tomado por uno de los propietarios
fue visto por él y otros Oficiales Superiores
y determinaron que el oficial no dijo la
frase censurable que quedó grabada. “Se
determinó que la frase fue dicha por uno de
los operadores de camiones de remolque",
escribió en su informe.
El Jefe explicó que las razones para la
remoción de los ocho vehículos fueron las
mismas: "Ninguna persona podrá almacenar
a la intemperie, ni el propietario o persona
a cargo del local en ninguna parte de la
ciudad para ser almacenado a la intemperie,
desmontado, parcialmente desmantelado,
inoperante, o un carro arruinado o vehículo
de motor de cualquier tipo chatarra, o
cualquier desgastado, o material desechado
listo para su destrucción o recogida para el
almacenamiento o la conversión a algún
otro uso”.

El Dr. Balson habla español
o de policía se consideran personas
que pueden ejecutar la ley. La pena por
cualquier violación será de $100.00 por día
por cada violación.
El Chief Fitzpatrick concluyó
diciendo: "Al revisar la ordenanza
mencionada creo que el Oficial aplicó una
ordenanza de la ciudad, cuando debería
haber usado las Leyes Generales de
Massachusetts. La intención del oficial
era limpiar terrenos baldíos de la ciudad de
los vehículos abandonados o almacenados
inadecuadamente.
El debería haber
contactado a los servicios de Inspección
sobre la situación. Por estas razones estoy
pidiendo el Oficial que anule todas las
citaciones y cese todo procedimiento
judicial contra las personas afectadas".
Yo estaba preocupada por la forma en
que los individuos estaban siendo tratados
porque escuchamos suficientes quejas
sobre nuestro departamento de policía, pero
se hace muy difícil defender una situación
arraigada en actos ilícitos. Si hay leyes
en contra de algo, depende de nosotros
asegurarnos de que estamos cumpliendo
con ellas para evitar problemas futuros.
Sabemos que hay requisitos sobre
hacer renovaciones en su casa, con
cuidado especial hacia el trabajo de
plomería y electricidad que debe ser
realizado por profesionales certificados
después de solicitar una licencia de obras
del ayuntamiento, sin embargo, la gente
construye apartamentos adicionales en
sótanos y áticos sin avisar a nadie. Tal
vez la excusa es para evitar un aumento
de impuestos en la propiedad, pero las
consecuencias de que algo salga mal con
un proyecto que haya hecho usted mismo
podrían ser insuperables.
traer a otros líderes estatales a la estación
policial en las próximas semanas y meses
para tener más apoyo para este proyecto.
A pesar de los desafíos financieros,
el Alcalde Rivera dijo que hará todo lo
que sea posible para que este proyecto sea
alcanzado. "Este proyecto para construir
este edificio será de beneficio para
Lawrence y el Estado", dijo Rivera.
Glenn dijo que este centro policial
proveerá espacio para reclutar a 200 policías
por año y se podrá unir a la ciudad, el estado,
agencias federales y compañías se seguridad
privadas para hacer posible este proyecto.
En el nuevo precinto policial se incluirían
desafíos y entrenamientos similares a los
que los oficiales encuentran en las calles o
casas. La evaluación hecha por el estado,
considera que este centro policial se llevará
un costo de $46 millones sin la colaboración
del complejo de entrenamiento adjunto al
NECC. El estudio ya hecho incluye ideas
dadas por los oficiales que han sobrevivido
a las carencias de este precinto en la calle
Lowell por largo tiempo.
20,000 pies cuadrado que tiene el
destacamento actual no provee entrada
segura, lugar para tomar información,
analizar y compartir casos de una manera
inteligente, entrevistas u otros servicios,
dice el estudio antes hecho. No hay
forma de evitar la entrada al edificio con
protección al que visita o trabaja en este
lugar. No hay lugar seguro para guardar
evidencias, armas y equipos. No hay lugar
para entrenar a los policías con armas de
fuego y practicar defensa personal.
Este estudio traerá un conjunto
de oportunidades a esta comunidad y
cambiará la percepción y atraerá al sector
económico y educativo como hasta ahora se
ha estado conversando con Northern Essex
Community College para estrechar lazos
con esta entidad educativa, quienes el año
pasado abrieron otro complejo para salud y
tecnología a un costo de $27 millones en la
calle Common.

La Pasión de Cristo en Lawrence

The Passion of Christ in Lawrence
Por Alberto Surís
By Alberto Suris
Organizado por la Parroquia de Santa María de
la Asunción, bajo la dirección de Alonso Capellán y
la Sub-Dirección de Jessica Avilés, se llevó a cabo
una procesión en la cual participaron un estimado
de 3,000 fieles por las calles de Lawrence el pasado
Viernes Santo, abril 3, 2014.
Jesús, (interpretado por Frederick Peña),
después de haber sido condenado a morir crucificado
en un juicio escenificado en el Altar Mayor de la
Parroquia de St. Mary, recorrió las calles en dirección
al Calvario, mientras el pueblo le seguía orando y
cantando a lo largo de la ruta.
La composición fotográfica recoge algunos
aspectos de la Pasión de Jesucristo en Lawrence.
Organized by St. Mary’s of The Assumption
Parish, under Alonzo Capellan’s direction and
Jessica Avilés’ sub-direction, a procession of an
estimated 3,000 church-goers walked through
Lawrence streets on Good Friday, April 3rd, 2014.
Jesus, (impersonated by Frederick Peña) having
been sentenced by Roman Governor Pontius Pilate
to die by crucifixion after a mock trial at St. Mary’s
main altar, walked down the streets toward the
Calvary, carrying the cross while people followed
singing and praying.
The pictures capture some aspects of the
Passion of Christ in Lawrence.
“Hoy, antes de que el gallo cante, me habrás negado tres veces”, dijo
Jesús (Frederick Peña) a su discípulo Peter (Ronald Ramírez).
“Before the cock crows today, you will deny me three times,” Jesus
(Frederick Pena) told his disciple Peter (Ronald Ramirez).
“Judas, ¿con un beso entregas al Hijo del Hombre?”
dijo Jesús (Frederick Peña) a Judas (Jairo
Domínguez).
Jesús es conducido para ser crucificado.
“Judas, you delivered the Son of Man with a
kiss?” said Jesus (Frederick Pena) to Judas (Jairo
Dominguez).
Jesus is carried away to be crucified.
“¿Eres el Rey de los Judíos? Preguntó Pilato (Kevin Capellán). “Sí. Es
como tú dices”, contestó Jesús. “Los sacerdotes te acusan de muchas
cosas”, por lo que Pilato volvió a preguntarle, “¿Vas a contestarme? ¿No
sabes que puedo condenarte a ser crucificado?” Jesús le contestó: “Tú no
tienes autoridad sobre mí a menos de que venga de arriba; por esta razón
aquel que me entregó a ti ha cometido el mayor pecado”.
Con la cruz a cuesta, Jesús comienza el recorrido al
Calvario para ser crucificado.
“Are you the king of the Jews?” asked Pilate (Kevin Capellan). “Yes.
It is as you say,” Jesus replied. “The chief priests accused you of many
things.” So again Pilate asked him, “Aren’t you going to answer? Don’t
you know that I can condemn you to be crucified?” Jesus answered,
“You would have no authority over me, unless it had been given you from “Si eres el Hijo de Dios, Rey de los Judíos ¿Por
above; for this reason he who delivered me to you has the greater sin.”
qué no te salvas a ti mismo y a nosotros?” Jairo
Domínguez es uno de los ladrones crucificados a la
derecha de Jesús.
“If you are the Son of God, King of the Jews, why
don’t you save yourself and us?” Jairo Dominguez
is one of the thieves being crucified to the right of
Jesus.
Carrying the cross, Jesus begins the journey to
Calvary for crucifixion.
“¡Todo está consumado!” Bajó la cabeza y entregó
su espíritu.
“It is finished!” He bowed his head, and gave up the
spirit.
“Nosotros estamos recibiendo el castigo que merecemos,
pero este hombre no ha hecho mal alguno. Señor, acuérdate
de mí cuando hayas llegado a tu reino”, dijo uno de los
ladrones. Jesús le respondió: “¡De verdad te digo que hoy
estarás conmigo en el Paraíso!” (René Mota es otro de los
ladrones.)
“We are getting what we deserve for our deeds, but this man
has done nothing wrong. Jesus, remember me when you
come into your kingdom,” said one of the thieves. “Truly
I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise”, replied
Jesus. (René Mota is the other thief.)

Lawrence Youth Participate In Annual Kick
Butts Day Event At Massachusetts State House
Youth from Lawrence, MA joined
nearly 250 young people from across
the Commonwealth gathered at the
Massachusetts State House for a Kick
Butts Day event to celebrate their role
in reducing the influence of the tobacco
industry in their communities. Boys and
Girls Club of Lawrence is a member of The
84 Movement, which helps mobilize youth
to take action to make their communities
more tobacco-free.
While at the State House, youth visited
with lawmakers and participated in a
speaking program with Commissioner of
the Massachusetts Department of Public
Health Dr. Monica Bharel, Senate Majority
Leader Harriette Chandler, Senator Jason
Lewis, Representative Jeffrey Sánchez,
Representative Kate Hogan, Representative
Jonathan Hecht and Representative Sean
Garballey. The young people used their
time with lawmakers to discuss how the
tobacco industry targets kids by making its
products cheap, sweet, and easy to get.
“I hear my classmates saying
cigarettes are so gross, but they then smoke
e-cigarettes because they taste good and
come in flavors like cherry and bubblegum,”
said Renee Hamblin, Statewide Leader for
The 84 Movement. “Most young people do
not know that e-cigarettes contain nicotine
and many parents do not know that it’s still
legal in many Massachusetts towns for kids
to buy them.”
About The 84 Movement
The 84 is a program of the
Massachusetts Department of Public Health
Tobacco Cessation and Prevention Program,
developed and managed in partnership with
Health Resources in Action. Created in
2007, The 84 Movement is a statewide youth
tobacco prevention program that engages
young people in local change efforts that
protect communities from the influence of
the tobacco industry, raise awareness of the
tobacco industry’s marketing tactics, and
promote the norm that most youth do not
smoke. To find out more information on
The 84 Movement and the work being done
throughout the Commonwealth to make
smoking history, visit www.The84.org and
www.makesmokinghistory.org.
Over 250 young people from across
Massachusetts will celebrate Kick Butts
Day at the Massachusetts State House. Kick
Butts Day is an annual event that highlights
the marketing tactics tobacco companies
use to target young people.
As part of The 84 Movement,
youth from communities throughout
Massachusetts will mark Kick Butts Day by
attending a youth-led rally, marching across
the Boston Common to the Massachusetts
State House, talking with their lawmakers
to discuss the impact of tobacco in
their communities, and participating in
a speaking program to highlight their
concerns and explain how they are working
Attached photo of Lindsey Miller, adult advisor of the Lawrence Boys and Girls Club 84
chapter and 84 chapter members, Steven Tran of the 84 Statewide Leadership Team and

to negate the tobacco industry’s impact in
their communities. This year’s Kick Butts
Day event focuses attention on how the
tobacco industry targets young people by
making its products cheap, sweet, and easy
to get, and in most Massachusetts towns
it is still legal to sell e-cigarettes to kids.
The 84 Movement helps mobilize youth
from across Massachusetts to take action
to protect their communities from the
influence of the tobacco industry. Join the
conversation on Twitter #KickButtsDay

éxito académico y profesional.
Beth Anderson, Fundadora y Directora
Ejecutiva de la Red de Phoenix, habló

Primary Care Physician Yvonne
Wilson, MD is accepting new patients to Share Journey from Housing Projects
at Steward Primary Care of Haverhill to Law Firm Principal at Fundraising
Auction on April 11 in Haverhill
Holy Family Hospital at
Merrimack Valley and Steward
Medical Group are pleased to
announce that Primary Care
Physician Yvonne Wilson, MD is
accepting new patients at Steward
Primary Care of Haverhill.
Dr. Wilson attended Harvard
Medical School and completed
her internship and residency at
New York Presbyterian Hospital
at Columbia University. Dr.
Wilson is board certified in
internal medicine and her special
interests include preventive
health, cardiovascular health, and
diabetes.
For the past 10 years Dr.
Wilson has been an inpatient
hospitalist at Holy Family
Hospital at Merrimack Valley in
Haverhill. During her tenure she
has served as a hospital board member, as
chair of the Pharmacy and Therapeutics
Committee, on the Medical Staff Executive
Committee and as Medical Staff President.
“Dr. Wilson has been a respected
hospitalist in the community for many years.
Her education and years of experience
make her a perfect choice for a primary care
physician serving greater Haverhill.” said
Steward Medical Group President George
Clairmont, MD. “I am proud to welcome a
physician with such outstanding credentials
and skills to Steward Medical Group.”
“During my years as a hospitalist I have
often had an urge to become a primary care
physician so I can have the opportunity to
build long-term relationships with patients,”
said Dr. Wilson. “For a decade I have been
committed to serving the health care needs
of patients in this community. Now as a
primary care physician in Haverhill, I can
continue that mission on different level.”

patients. In most cases, she will be able
to provide a same-day appointment for a

Glenn said the police training center
would provide spots for about 200
potential police recruits per year who are
planning to join local, state and federal law
enforcement agencies as well as private
security companies,
The new facility would include a firing
range and a training maze that would simulate
many of the conditions police officers
encounter on the street, such as a replica of a
home that they could practice raiding.
The state study also estimated it would
cost about $46 million to build a new city
police station without the NECC training
complex.
The study stressed what Lawrence
officials have been saying about the Lowell
Street police station for a long time – that
is poses “numerous operational, legal and
security risks for its occupants and the
adjacent neighborhood."
“The
current
20,000-square-foot
(police station) does not provide safe entries,
proper intake areas, room for intelligence
sharing and analysis, interview rooms and
(has) undersized dispatch facilities,” the
study said. “There is no ability to control
access to the current building and its interior
to protect visitors and workers. There is no
space to properly secure evidence, control
entrances to the building and effectively
segregate weapons and ammunition. The
current police headquarters provides no
space for officers to train with handguns
and practice personal defense.”
The study said the proposed joint
facility would improve the city's “public
safety perception, attract economic
development
and
add
educational
opportunities in Lawrence”
Northern Essex Community College
has been steadily building a stronger
presence in Lawrence. Last year, for
example, the school opened a $27 million
health and technology classroom building

Socrates De La Cruz was
a year too young to join the
Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence
(BGCL) at age 6, but he wouldn’t
be deterred. His brother, Otto,
had just turned 7, so De La Cruz
accompanied him to the club and
pretended to be the same age.
“They said, ‘Welcome to
the club,’ and I thought I was in
heaven from that first moment,” he
recalled. “Whenever you walked
in, there would be a big smile and a
hug. I went every day religiously. I
met my closest friends there. I was
raised there. It changed my life.”
Now a resident of Methuen, De La

Hancock Housing Projects in Lawrence to

for the BGCL Spring in Paris Auction on
Saturday, April 11 at 5:30 p.m. at DiBurro’s,
887 Boston Road in Haverhill. The event
is BGCL’s largest annual fundraiser,
accounting for a significant portion of its
annual operating budget.
Prior to joining BGCL, De La Cruz
recalls often being alone at the projects
while his single mother worked two and
sometimes three jobs to provide for her two
sons. “Going to the club helped me feel
sheltered, wanted, and protected, like I was
part of a bigger family that was genuinely
looking out for me,” he said. “It felt like
home. I went without thinking about it.”
De La Cruz participated in reading
and other academic enrichment programs,
leadership clubs, and community service at
BGCL, but the activity he loved most was
basketball. “I played day in, day out,” he
noted, “but I learned so much more than
basketball: discipline, dedication, leadership,
teamwork, finishing what you start, and
humility. I can’t put into words the impact
those qualities have had on my entire life.”
De La Cruz was a shooting guard during
his freshman year at Lawrence High School, as
well as at Kimball Union Academy in Meriden,
N.H. which he attended after BGCL helped
secure a scholarship. While De La Cruz came
to appreciate the experience, he remembers
feeling initially overwhelmed by the atmosphere
surrounding the prestigious boarding school.
“I had never left the realm of the projects,
never mind Lawrence, Massachusetts,” he
said, recalling an unsuccessful runaway
attempt that resulted in him getting on
the wrong bus that was actually bound
137 Lawrence Street
Lawrence, MA 01841
(978)682.4060
for Vermont. After a frantic call to BGCL
Associate Director Steve Kelley – whom he
still calls a surrogate father – he was put on
a bus back to school, at Kelley’s expense.
After graduating from Kimball
Union Academy, De La Cruz attended the
College of the Holy Cross on a basketball
scholarship, earned his law degree from
Suffolk University, and worked at the Essex
District Attorney’s Office. He came home to
Lawrence to open DLC Law Group in 2000,
with the hope that his example will inspire
“someone growing up the way I did to no
longer see a law degree as out of reach.”
Now married with three daughters, De
La Cruz said he has integrated life lessons
learned at BGCL into his family life as well
as his career. They include working hard
even when no one is watching, and living
by Kelley’s mantra which he first heard at
age 9: “If plan A doesn’t work, there are 25
other letters in the alphabet.”
However, De La Cruz emphasizes that
he is far from the only BGCL alum who can
testify to the myriad of ways in which the
club has benefited their lives. By speaking
at the upcoming auction, he said he is “not
giving back. It’s just giving, because there’s
still so much to do.”
“The club gave me the desire to achieve
and the desire to become more than what I
saw around me, so I could help my mom,
my grandmother, my community, my state,
and my nation,” De La Cruz said. “I learned
all of that at BGCL.”
Tickets to the BGCL Spring in Paris
Auction cost $150, and tables of 10 are
still available for dinner, cocktails, and
live and silent auctions. Raffle tickets are
also available – $100 for a chance to win
$10,000! For more information, contact

GLCAC Receives Additional $50,000 in
Heating Assistance Funds from National Grid
Funds to Help Defray Winter
Energy Costs for Qualifying
Residents
The Greater Lawrence Community
Action Council, Inc. today announced that
National Grid has recently provided $50,000
in additional heating assistance funds to
help defray energy costs for residents who
rely on some type of financial support.
“This winter’s energy costs have been
challenging for most residents in our area,
but that’s particularly true for residents who
rely on some type of financial assistance
to pay their energy bills,” says Evelyn
Friedman, GLCAC’s executive director.
“This latest round of financial support from
National Grid will go a long way toward
alleviating some of that financial burden,
especially for those on a fixed income.”
GLCAC will use the additional funds
to help about 250 of its neediest clients
pay heating bills. GLCAC’s Low-Income
Home Energy Assistance Program helps
low-income families and individuals with
the cost of heating their homes during the
winter season. The program serves residents
of Lawrence, Methuen, Andover, North
Andover, Reading and North Reading.
“With the last few months bringing
record cold and snowfall to the region,
we understand that our customers are
concerned about energy costs,” said
Marcy Reed, president of National Grid in
Massachusetts. “It’s important to us that our
customers are aware of the many options
National Grid has in place to make monthly
energy bills more manageable. And we are
particularly concerned that our customers
who qualify for heating assistance continue
to have access to funds.”
GLCAC is a social services agency
that annually assists 29,000 individuals in
Greater Lawrence. GLCAC’s wide range
of services, from heating assistance to
daycare, focus on lifting families out of
poverty and setting them on a pathway to
economic stability.

I am from water droplets
From the Amazon Rainforest where the rain drips slowly to the ground. I am from the
Tribe of the Incas
Quiet, respecting, but also fierce warriors in battle. I am from Riverfront Park
Where stress loosens its grip and when the strap on my gloves tighten. I am from the
city of promise
The city which has inspired my dream of becoming mayor. I am from the Galapagos
Islands
From snapping turtles and undiscovered exotic birds.
I'm from a war torn family
A war in which people with the desire to succeed get kicked out of the "country of the
free"
I'm from a family who believes in education Instead of harvesting cacao in the
scorching heat. I'm from the Catholic faith
Where God is the shepherd and we're all his sheep. I'm from a hardworking, caring
mother
Who has given up eating in the hardest times so I could enjoy her agony. I am from a
once loving father
Who is now the one who haunts my dreams.
I'm from corn and cheese
The ingredients to make tamales, the one my mother's mom use to make. I'm from the
colors Yellow, Blue and Red
The colors of wealth, sorrow and bloodshed
All in which Ecuador has had to go through to be where it is now.
Under the tree besides my working ranch Plopped an apple to ground
A thousand seeds came spilling towards me
All of these signify my ancestors and descendants
Just as God said to Abraham, "you'll have many descendants, more than the stars in
the night sky"
So I ate the apple with all its seeds
Taking in my people's strengths and passing it off to the new generation.

NOTAS DE SU BIBLIOTECARIA
BY/POR MAUREEN NIMMO
Lawrence Public Library Director
Hola, queridos lectores de Rumbo.
Estoy feliz al mirar por las ventanas y ver
que casi toda la nieve se ha ido. La ciudad
hizo un gran esfuerzo para permitir el desfile
el Día de San Patricio y permitir a la gente
verlo desde las aceras. Por supuesto, fue el
día más miserable que pudiéramos imaginar
para un desfile, pero la gente comoquiera
salió y se divirtió. Como humanos, no
podemos controlar el tiempo; entonces,
felicitaciones a todos los organizadores y
a todos los responsables por el éxito del
desfile. Después de un invierno como este,
¡merecemos una fiesta!
La semana del 12 de abril es la Semana
Nacional de la Biblioteca. Vamos a tener
un evento para niños con la narradora de
historias, Nicholette Nordin, el día 15 a las
12:30 PM en el salón de niños. Nicolette
ha presentado programas aquí antes, y
realmente me encanta como lo hace. Ella
sabe cómo animar a los niños, y a la vez,
tiene el ingenio y encanto para mantener
a los padres entretenidos. Traiga a sus
niños para relajarse un rato con algunos
bocadillos y diversiones.
Nuestro alcalde intentará estar
con nosotros también. A lo mejor, está
practicando las destrezas de leer en voz alta.
Ya sabemos que el alcalde pequeñito viene
pronto, y uno tiene que estar preparado.
El concierto irlandés que tuvimos el
domingo no era parte de nuestro programa
de la serie de conciertos, sino, más bien
parte del mes de la herencia irlandesa en
Lawrence. Sin embargo, porque George
y Terri Kelley fueron los artistas, parece
ser parte de los conciertos anteriores. Fue
hermoso a pesar de que George y Terri no
se estaban sintiendo bien. La familia de la
Concejala Eileen O’Connor Bernal estaba
a mano para ayudar. El papá Frank y los
hijos, Andrew y Maggie, compartieron el
micrófono. Incluso, Eileen misma cogió el
micrófono aunque parece que fue obligada
a hacerlo. Vi a su marido tratando de
esconderse atrás para evitar el micrófono.
Hablando en serio, pasamos un tiempo
divertido, y sus hijos se mejoran cada año.
Hablando de conciertos, recuerden de
guardar la fecha para el último concierto de
nuestra serie de conciertos. Será Vesperae
Solennes de Confessore por W.A. Mozart.
Este será realizado por New England
Classical Singers y Lawrence High Girls
Ensemble en la iglesia de Corpus Christi
(antes Holy Rosary) el 3 de mayo a las 4
PM. Les daré más detalles en la próxima
edición.
Por último, vamos a tener un concierto
más (pues, la primavera está aquí!) el
domingo, 12 de abril a la 1 PM en nuestro
Auditorio Sargent. Esta celebración del
aniversario de 25 años de la independencia
de Lituania es patrocinado por el Lawrence
Cultural Council y White Fund. Cualquier
persona de Lawrence puede adivinar que el
organizador del evento es nuestro amigo,
“Sr. Lituania” Jonas Stundzia. Los artistas
intérpretes son: Rasa Vitkauskaite tocando
el piano, Simona Minns tocando la citara, y
Jonas Kublickas tocando la guitarra clásica.
Va a ser muy divertido sea lo que sea su
herencia!
Que sigan creciendo las flores y que
siga soleado! Nos vemos en la biblioteca.
NOTES FROM YOUR LIBRARIAN
Hello Rumbo readers. It’s a joy to
look out my widows and see almost all of
the snow is gone. The city made a great
final effort to allow the Saint Patrick’s Day
parade to happen and enable folks to see it
from the sidewalks. Granted, it was about
as miserable a day for a parade as one could
imagine but people still got out and had
fun. There is only so much we humans can
control so great job to all the organizers
and to everyone responsible for making it
happen. After a winter like that we had all
earned a party!
The week of April 12th is National
Library Week. We will be having a
children’s event featuring storyteller
Nicolette Nordin on the 15th at 12:30 in our
children’s room. Nicolette has performed
here in the past and I really like her. She
knows how to get the kids going and has,
at the same time, the wit and charm to keep
parents from being bored. Bring your kids
down, relax for a while and enjoy some
snacks and fun. Our mayor will try to be
there as well. He would need to be finetuning those read aloud skills about this
time. After all, mini-mayor is coming soon
and one must be prepared!
The Irish concert that we had on
Sunday was not part of our concert series
program but, rather, part of Irish Heritage
Month in Lawrence. Still, because George
and Terri Kelley were the performers it does
seem all of a piece with the earlier ones.
It was beautiful despite both George and
Terri being somewhat under the weather.
Councilor Eileen O’Connor Bernal’s
family was on hand to help out. Pop Frank
and son and daughter Andrew and Maggie
all took their turns at the mic. Even Eileen
herself had a go although how voluntary
her contribution was remains to be seen. I
did see husband Les trying to make himself
scarce at the back of the auditorium lest he
be prevailed on too to perform. Seriously
though, it was a great time and the junior
Bernals just keep getting better every year.
Speaking of concerts, just a little “save
the date” reminder: the final performance
of our regular series will be Vesperae
Solennes de Confessore by W.A. Mozart.
This will be performed by the New England
Classical Singers and the Lawrence High
Girls Ensemble at Corpus Christi Church
(formerly Holy Rosary) on May 3rd at 4:00
p.m. More details next time.
Finally, we will be host to yet another
concert (Well, it’s spring and music is in
the air!) on Sunday April 12th at 1:00 in
our Sargent auditorium. This celebration
of the 25th anniversary of Lithuanian
Independence is sponsored by the Lawrence
Cultural Council and the White Fund. Any
Lawrencian worth his/her salt can guess
that the organizer of the event was our
friend “Mr. Lithuania” Jonas Stundzia.
Performers will be: Rasa Vitkauskaite on
piano, Simona Minns on zither and Jonas
Kublickas on classical guitar. Should be
great fun whatever your heritage!
Bring on the flowers and keep the
sunshine coming! See you at the library.

Complaints about
towing cars
We recently received a cell phone video
which had been recorded in the process
of towing two cars from private property
but lacked registration or were heavily
damaged. In that video which took place on
March 21, it is almost unintelligible certain
obscenities that someone was yelling
and were attributed to Police Officer Carl
Farrington. The cars were then removed by
Coady’s Towing.
Police officers are commonly chastised
or even suspended for being disrespectful
to civilians so I wanted to see how the
Lawrence Police Department would deal

after high seas
adventure
LÉALO EN ESPAÑOL EN LA PÁGINA 4
with this complaint. I requested a report
under the Freedom of Information Act and
set out to research the legality of Officer
Farrington’s actions.
Upon checking with the City Attorney
Charles Boddy and Inspectional Services,
I found out about the rules for keeping
unregistered cars (even in private property)
and I needed to see how they applied to the
case presented on that video.
On April 3rd I received from Interim
Police Chief James Fitzpatrick the results
of his investigation, confirming my
findings. Officer Farrington towed that
evening a total of eight cars around the
same neighborhood and he wrote on the
three separate incident reports that, “While
patrolling the city for unregister (sic),
abandoned vehicles, I found this unfenced
lot at…” followed by the description of the
cars found at each one.
Chief Fitzpatrick goes on to explain
that the video taken by one of the proprietors
was viewed by him and other Superior
Officers and determined that the Officer did
not say the objectionable phrase recorded.
“We determined that the phrase was said by
one of the tow truck operators,” he wrote in
his report.
The Chief explained the reasons for
the removal of all eight vehicles were the
same: “No person shall store in the open,
nor shall the owner or person in control of
any premises within the city permit to be
stored in the open, any dismantled, partially
dismantled, inoperative, wrecked or junked
truck or motor vehicle of any kind, or any
worn-out, cast-off or discarded material
ready for destruction or collected for
storage or conversion to some use.”
Any inspectional personnel as well
as fire or police personnel are deemed
enforcement persons. The penalty for any
violation shall be $100.00 per day for each
violation.
Chief Fitzpatrick concluded by saying,
“Upon reviewing the above mentioned
ordinance I believe the Officer applied a
city ordinance when he should have used
a Mass. General Law. The Officer’s intent
was to clear vacant city lots of abandoned
or improperly stored vehicles. The Officer
should have contacted inspectional services
about the situation. For these reasons I am
asking the Officer to void all citations and
cease any court proceedings against the
individuals affected.”
I was concerned about the way the
individuals were being treated because we
hear enough complaints about our police
department but it becomes very difficult to
defend a situation rooted in wrongdoing. If
there are laws against something, it is up to
us to make sure that we are abiding by them
to avoid future problems.
We know there are requirements about
doing home renovations, particularly
involving plumbing and electrical work
which should be done by certified
professionals after soliciting a building
permit from city hall yet, people build
additional apartments in basements and
attics without notifying anyone. Perhaps
the excuse is to avoid a tax increase but the
consequences of something going wrong
with a do-it-yourself project could be
insurmountable.

The WHAV call letters are officially
back home in Haverhill after having been
on a high seas adventure for a few years.
Haverhill¹s new FM radio station at
97.9 will go on the air using the heritage
WHAV call sign. Up until today, however,
that was not a sure thing. As late as Friday,
the U.S. Coast Guard controlled the call
letters. The military branch previously
assigned WHAV to an oil industry barge,
Penn 91, for its onboard radio station.
“Heartfelt thanks go out to the U.S.
Coast Guard and Kirby Corporation for
their behind-the-scenes work in releasing
the WHAV call sign,” said WHAV
President and General Manager Tim
Coco. “I particularly want to acknowledge
the work of Kim E. Demory at the Coast
Guard¹s National Vessel Documentation
Center and Joseph H. Reniers, senior vice
president‹Diesel Engine Services and
Marine Facility Operations.” Coco also
thanked WHAV attorneys Howard M.
Liberman and Lee G. Petro of Drinker
Biddle & Reath LLP, Washington.
Coco received a Massachusetts service
mark for the WHAV name in 2004 and
federal trademark protection in 2008.
Those protections, however, do not prevent
the Federal Communications Commission
(FCC) from granting use of the letters to the
Coast Guard.
In 2008, Penn Maritime launched the
414-foot Penn 91, built by Corn Island
Shipyard Inc. of Grandview, Ind. It is part
of an articulated tug and barge unit with
the tugboat Skipjack, also built in 2008 by
Thoma-Sea Boat Builders of Lockport, La.
In 2012, Kirby Corporation of Houston,
Texas, acquired Penn Maritime. Kirby is
the nation¹s largest tank barge operator.
History Repeats Itself
The Haverhill Gazette found itself in
the same position in 1947. The newspaper
was almost forced to use the call letters
WHGF for its new radio station since
WHAV was assigned to the Haverhill
Police Department¹s shortwave radio
station. Police Chief Henry J. Lynch agreed
to swap letters, and the transaction won
FCC approval Jan. 11, 1947.
The WHAV call was desired because
of its close association to Haverhill, its easy
identification and the part it will be able to
play in promoting public interest in the new
station, reported The Gazette, quoting thenincoming Commercial Manager James B.
Dunbar.
Non-profit WHAV is now conducting
its Make Waves campaign, with Tom
Bergeron as honorary chairperson, to raise
money needed to construct FM transmitter
facilities.
The WHAV call letters have been
associated with local broadcasting since
1947. WHAV is today operated by Public
Media of New England Inc., a not-for-profit
corporation. Since 2004, the call has served
the Merrimack Valley¹s pioneer Internet
radio station at WHAV.net and a number
of public access cable television stations
in Andover, Haverhill and Methuen, and
Plaistow and Sandown, N.H. The Federal
Communications Commission recently
granted WHAV a construction permit to
build a new FM radio station at 97.9 MHz.

"Si yo puedo vivir en Lowell
toda mi vida y visitar a mi familia en
Camboya, estaré feliz", dice Bora
con una sonrisa.
Bora y Chanminea habían estado
viviendo en los EE.UU. durante cinco
años antes de comprar su primera casa.
"La primera vez es difícil", dice Bora,
recordando cuando él y Chanminea llegaron
de Camboya. "Todo era nuevo para mí."
Los dos habían estado alquilando
una casa cuando un amigo le dijo a Bora
sobre las clases de entrenamiento para
compradores de vivienda. Tomaron la clase
que Merrimack Valley Housing Partnership
ofrece en colaboración con la Asociación
de Ayuda Mutua de Camboya. Bora y
Chanminea aprendieron mucho sobre la
compra de viviendas en los EE.UU.
Se reunieron con Ed Alcántara, nuestro
consejero para compradores de casas, tres
veces durante su proceso. Ed los guió
a la hora de solicitar el préstamo ONE
Mortgage financiado por la Asociación
de Viviendas de Massachusetts. Donna
Koulas fue su oficial de préstamo. También
recibieron asistencia para el pago de la
ciudad de Lowell.
Después de visitar casi veinte casas, la
joven pareja encontró un hogar perfecto en
la nueva urbanización de Rivers Edge en el
que criar a su hija, Monineat. Se mudaron
el día de Navidad de 2014.
Debido a que la familia había estado
ahorrando dinero para este gran paso en su
vida, visitar a su familia en Camboya no
ha sido posible. Después de años sin ver a
la familia, solamente se conecta todas las
semanas por teléfono.
Felicidades a los nuevos propietarios,

“If I can live in
Lowell all my life
and visit my family
in Cambodia, I’ll be
happy,” says Bora with
a smile.
Bora and Chanminea
had been living in the U.S.
for five years before they
bought their first home.
“The first time is tough,”
says Bora, remembering
when he and Chanminea
first arrived from Cambodia.
“Everything was new for
me.”
The two had been
renting a home when a
friend told Bora about
the home buyer training
classes.
They took the
class that the Merrimack
Valley Housing Partnership
does in cooperation with
the Cambodian Mutual
Assistance
Association.
Bora
and
Chanminea
learned a lot about home buying in the U.S.
They met with Ed Alcantara, our
home buyer counselor, three times during
their process. Ed guided them in applying
for the ONE Mortgage loan funded by the
Massachusetts Housing Partnership. Donna
Koulas was their loan officer. They also
received down payment assistance from the
City of Lowell.
After visiting almost twenty homes,
the young couple found a perfect home in
the new Rivers Edge development in which
to raise their daughter, Monineat. They
moved in on Christmas day of 2014.
Because the family had been saving
money for this big step in their lives, visiting
family in Cambodia has not been possible.
After years without seeing family, they still
reconnect every week over the phone.
Congratulations
to
the
new
homeowners, Bora and Chanminea.

NECC Presents "Avenue Q"
Find out what happens to starry eyed
children when they become adults in
"Avenue Q" presented by Northern Essex
Community College's Top Notch Players
on Friday, April 10, Saturday, April 11,
Friday, April 17, and Saturday, April 18,
at 7:30 p.m. and Thursday, April 16, at 4
p.m. in the Top Notch Theatre on the third
floor of the Spurk Building on the Haverhill
campus.
Tickets are $10 for general admission
and $8 for students and senior citizens.
Tickets are available at the door and
through Eventbrite.com.
"Avenue Q" is an American play. It
is an "autobiographical and biographical"
coming-of-age parable, addressing and
satirizing the issues and anxieties associated
with entering adulthood. Its characters
lament that as children, they were assured
by their parents, and by children's
television programs such as PBS's Sesame
Street, that they were "special" and "could
do anything"; but as adults, they have
discovered to their surprise and dismay that
in the real world their options are limited,
and they are no more "special" than anyone
else.
The musical is notable for the use
of 11 puppets, animated by unconcealed
puppeteers, alongside three human actors.
The music and lyrics were written by
Northern Essex

Pet of the week at Nevins
MIMI AND ROSIE
Aren't these two girls beautiful? We haven't seen these
colors in while here at Nevins Farm. Both are absolute
show piggies. Mimi, she is five years old, but one
would not have guessed it, is the cream/champagne
colored lady. Rosie is a self red girl and three years old.
They are both very docile and tame. Rosie plays drama
queen when she'll get picked up at first, but I think she
does not like to be taken away from Mimi. She loves
her. They hang out in the hay together and are always close to each other. They seek
comfort being close to each other. The girls are in their prime age - they would do
best in an experienced guinea pig home.
Oh, they love to eat. All healthy veggies are on their menu list. And they are expert
beggars - you will know when you meet them and let them know that you brought
veggie treats...:)

ALAN
Alan is a 24 year old Trottingbred pony gelding. This
incredibly sweet and kind pony and would make a
great pet for a child. He has wonderful ground manners
and loves getting scratches and attention. Looking
beautiful after coming to us in very poor condition, he
is now ready to find his forever home. This endearing
pony is easy to handle and is a staff and volunteer
favorite. If you are interested in adopting Alan contact
us at [email protected]
FOXY
Foxy is a sweet and curious five-year-old Tan Min Pin. She loves
to go on walks and explore her environment. She would do best in
a home with cats but no other dogs or kids. Foxy seeks attention
and loves butt rubs. She is affectionate and loving on her time and
is super cute. Foxy has the adorable Min Pin expressions and those
wonderful ears.
Come in and meet her, you will fall in love
PAPI
This cute, curious tabby would love your attention!
Papi might sit next to you and solicit pets, or climb
right up on your lap. When he’s feeling playful, he’ll
really go for a laser pointer or a ball.
He could be a good fit for a home with a playful or
patient cat, or with older children. He loves the great
outdoors, so he may be a good candidate for a home
in a safe, quiet neighborhood where he could roam a
little.
If you're looking for a cool new roommate, come meet Papi today! If you can't find
Papi when you visit the adoption center, be sure to ask for him by name. Cats are
often moved around.
SAVE LIVES: get your pet spayed or neutered Reduced SNAP fees are made possible through

importance of spaying and neutering as part of a complete pet health care program.
