Next step for police & fire?

Building study group plans new approach after election defeat

By Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor Justin@duxBuryClipper.Com

After a proposal for new public safety facilities was de- feated at the ballot box for the second year in a row, members of the Public Safety Building Feasibility Study Committee are regrouping –– but remain convinced the current plan is what’s best for the town. The committee met for the first time on Wednesday since two ballot initiatives were defeated by voters. A plan to refurbish the main fire station at a cost of $5.2 million and a request for $435,000 for plans

for a new police station were rejected at the spring town election. Last year, two sepa- rate plans for a new police sta- tion and a new fire station were also rejected at the polls. Study committee chair- man Neil Johnson said the group had been working on the issue for over three years, examining multiple locations and possibilities –– including the idea of a combined public safety facility. “It seems like forever,” Johnson said.

A healthy plan

Duxbury ready for swine flu, other emergencies, says fire chief

By susanna sheehan, Clipper staff susanna@duxBuryClipper.Com

With swine flu reach- ing further across the nation, Duxbury Fire Chief Kevin Nord felt it was a good time to present the Board of Select- men with a plan that outlines who’s in charge of the town if its leaders were unable to per- form their duties. Nord gave selectmen a draft of the “Continuity of Op- erations Plan” Monday night. It lists the procedures that must

take place if, during a major emergency, the town’s deci- sion makers fall ill and are un- able to act. Once it is finalized, it will name a list of succes- sors to Town Manager Richard MacDonald if he is unable to perform his duties. “It addresses the ques- tion of how would the town of Duxbury continue to operate if we lost our leadership,” said Nord.

Idol singers hit high note

By Julia swem, Clipper intern

D uxbury Idol was a sold out, smash-

ing success. The crowd exploded

in applause after every contestant

sang and many on hand said it was the best Idol yet. The night began with all the contes-

tants doing an opening number together and then the competition began. The students’ talent was on display throughout the night but there can only be one winner and that was Victoria Larusso.

Three times a week, stu- dents from the Career Seminar class at Duxbury High School travel to the Duxbury Police Station to help out with a va- riety of tasks, from clerical to custodial work. The students have become welcome faces at the station, praised by police staff for their cheerful attitudes and tireless work ethics.

Police seize drugs from Forest Street home

By Justin GraeBer, Clipper editor editor@duxBuryClipper.Com

A Duxbury man is being charged with dealing mari- juana after a raid of a Forest Street home involving officers from multiple towns. Duxbury Police served a search warrant at 132 Forest St. on April 29 at 6:10 p.m. along with with officers from the Marshfield, Scituate, and Pembroke police departments, according to a police report filed in court. Michael Zarrella, 23, was arrested at the home and charged with possession of a Class D substance and pos- session of a class D substance with intent to distribute, ac- cording to police. Two fire- arms were seized during the search, Duxbury Police Chief Mark DeLuca said in a state- ment. Police have also filed an application for charges against the homeowner, Robert Za- rella, for misdemeanor posses- sion of two firearms without an FID card. Zarella’s FID cards had expired, according to Lt. Lewis Chubb, therefore

he was charged with a misde- meanor rather than a felony. Police searched all the rooms at the house as well as several people present and found .48 ounces of hashish and three-quarters of a pound of marijuana in Zarella’s bed- room, according to the police report, along with a box of plastic bags and a digital scale. Police say they also found a quantity of cash and other drug

paraphernalia. According to the report, Zarella told police he kept the marijuana for personal use and sold some to his friends. Zarella was arraigned in Plymouth District Court on April 29 and released on per- sonal recognizance, according to court documents. He is next due in court on June 10 for a pre-trial hearing.

Public safety building group says current plan is good

continued from page one

The group has also scaled back the plans for new facili- ties, reducing the square foot- age in order to cut costs. Overall, there seemed to be consensus among commit- tee members that the plan pre- sented to voters in March was still the best plan. “Engineering-wise, I think we did the right thing,” said Johnson. “I don’t think it would be in the town’s best in- terest to cheapen these build- ings.” “I think the program is still the program,” added former selectman Andre Martecchini. On the subject of why the projects failed at the ballot box, however, the group was split. Some members pointed to the fact that a question about a combined facility was on the ballot, even though the proposal had been dropped and wasn’t voted on at Town Meeting. “I think having the ballot question for the combo station completely destroyed the votes we wanted to have,” said Fire Chief Kevin Nord. No one from the police department was present at Wednesday’s meeting. If all the “yes” votes for the combo station ballot ques- tion were transferred to the other question, both projects would have been passed. Some members wondered if there should have been more of a concerted effort to edu- cate people at the polls about

PUBLIC SAFETY PROjECTS

TIMELINE

August 2006: The Public Safety Building Feasibility Study Committee is commis- sioned by the Town Manager.

March 9, 2008: A $16.5 million plan for a new police station near the intersections of Routes 3 and 14 and a new fire station behind the existing facility off Tremont Street is approved by voters at Town Meeting.

March 22, 2008: The pro- posal, presented to voters as a single ballot question, is defeated at the polls during the annual spring town elec- tions.

March 16, 2009: Two public safety articles pass Town Meeting, one for $435,000 for design funds for a new police station off Mayflower Street, and one for a $5.2 million renovation of the existing main fire station. A proposal to build a combined facility on cemetery land is passed over.

March 28, 2009: The two ballot questions fail at the polls. The question regard- ing the combined station –– which still had to be on the ballot for legal reasons –– receives several hundred votes.

the combo station option. Oth- ers thought that economic fac- tors contributed to the nega- tive vote. “I personally think it was just too much money,” said Martecchini. Committee member Geor-

gia Blatterman said the proj-

ect’s failure was the result of

a “perfect storm” of a host

of factors, including the eco- nomic downturn, the number of projects on the ballot, and the confusion of the combo station. “We were really doomed with what happened economi- cally,” she said.

Eventually the group de- cided to stick with the current proposals, to renovate the fire station and build a new police station on land off Mayflower Street. The next job is to con- vince the public, members said. Martecchini said an issue

is that the public safety proj-

ects don’t have a natural con- stituency, like the pool, or the schools –– or even the Ashdod fire station from a few years ago, when residents from that neighborhood felt they were being underserved and mobi- lized at the polls. Nord also pointed out that there is a ticking clock fac- tor to the public safety station issue. Just last week, water leaked from a bathroom at the fire station into a room below, causing $4,000 in damage to

a building that will probably

just be replaced at some point

in the future.

Nord pointed out that the committee had effectively convinced Town Meeting vot-

ers of the need for the projects, but not the public at large. “I think the real project

we’ve got to convince

is

people that this is a real need,” said Frank Mangione.

Students lend a helping hand

continued from page one

Patrick McLeod, a senior, and Katherine Granger, a ju- nior, both say they enjoy visit- ing the station. “There’s always something to do here,” said Granger. “I really enjoy it.” Granger has been work- ing with the chief’s assistant, Paddi Donato, who can’t say enough about the students. “I’m so impressed with their professionalism, their maturity,” Donato said. “Ba- sically anything I’ve given them, they’ve done.” Granger has done things like filing paperwork and mak- ing labels. She said she’s glad for the hands-on experience. “You learn things here that you don’t normally do,” she said. “We come in here and do work rather than sit in a class- room for two blocks.” The police have been asso- ciated with the Career Seminar class for two or three years, said Kate Bonneau, a special education teacher at the high school. “The department’s made everyone feel welcome,” Bon- neau said. “The community has been really open to the

it’s been a wonder-

ful opportunity.”

program

In addition to the students who work at the police station, one of the students from the class works with the medically fragile classroom at the Alden School and another helps out around the grounds at the high school. McLeod works with Mike Carter, a mechanic and custo- dian at the station. “It’s interesting,” he said of the work. “There’s a lot to do here.” McLeod, who also re- cently became an Eagle Scout, said he likes coming to the sta- tion and meeting the police of- ficers. The students weren’t just handed these jobs, however, they had to come down and

interview –– all part of the career training offered by the high school. The year-round program teaches resume writ- ing and interview skills along with vocational training. “We can teach them the skills, but it’s wonderful to go out in the community and use those skills,” said instructional assistant Kristen Okerfelt. Police Chief Mark DeLuca said town officials have been supportive of the program. It’s not just the students who benefit from the program. McLeod and Granger have be- come favorites of the officers and the staff. “It lights up the whole sta- tion every time they come in,” said DeLuca.

War Memorial Fund needs citizen support

Recently at Town Meeting, the War Memorial Restora- tion Project was unanimously accepted. The funding ap- proved covers 80 percent of the expenses and the War Me- morial Committee was asked to create a fundraising group to raise the balance needed to complete this project. The Duxbury Rural and Historical Society has donated the first gift of $5,000 to kick off this campaign. The goal is to dedi- cate this beautiful Indiana limestone monument Veterans Day 2009. Any size donation is happily accepted; if every family in Duxbury donated $5 the goal would be reached! To make a donation or to join the committee, contact them: Town of Duxbury War Memorial Fund, Town of Duxbury, 878 Trem- ont St., Duxbury 02332. Checks should be made out to Town of Duxbury WMF.

Robocall policy updated

By susanna sheehan, Clipper staff susanna@duxBuryClipper.Com

Fire Chief Kevin Nord presented selectmen with a final draft of a policy on the use of the town’s emergency notification telephone system during Monday night’s meet- ing. Selectmen discussed this policy last month, but wanted input from the leaders of town departments. On Monday, they voted to adopt it with a change suggested by Nord. The new procedures out- line who can use the emergen- cy notification system, when it should be used and what types of messages are allowed. The system, which uses computer- generated calls to automati- cally notify multiple residents with a pre-recorded message, can be used for both emergen- cy notices and urgent infor- mation. It cannot be used for personal use, for-profit activi- ties, advertising, political an- nouncements and improper or erroneous messages. The system can also be used by the director of any town department for informa- tional notices, although these require written approval from the town manager or his rep- resentative 24 hours prior to sending out the message. Non- emergency information could include road closures, town meetings, or special events, among other things. The change suggested by Nord is regarding when a town official uses the system for sending notices to his or her employees within a specific town department. The change approved by the selectmen allows messages to be sent to agencies related to a town department, such as the DPW

 

IN OTHER BUSINESS, SELECTMEN:

Discussed the upcoming land use forum on May 20. They identi-

fied four topics for discussion: commercial zones, the Community Preservation Committee, uses for town land, and housing. The meeting, which is open to the public, will involve all town land-use boards and committees.

Learned that the Wright building on St. George Street has been

awarded a 2009 Preservation Award from the Massachusetts Historical Commission for its preservation and adaptive re-use. A formal award ceremony will be forthcoming.

• Discussed the site on Mayflower Street proposed for a new police station. Former selectman Ruth Rowley said the site was bought in 1970 as a buffer for the transfer station when it used to be a dump. She felt it should not be built upon. Rowley also asked selectmen to review the town manager act because she said it requires the selectmen to create a 25-year long-range plan for the town. Selectmen also discussed investigating if it would be pos- sible to use the land behind the fire station that was used as stump dump and for the dumping of the remains of the 1972 Vendome Hotel in Boston after it burned and collapsed. The town later took the land for non-payment of taxes. Selectmen felt that cleaning the site for a new police station would be too costly but said it should be looked into.

Learned that the filed sub-bids for the pool renovation project

came in last week and that the general contractor bids are due this week. The town is also devising a plan to pay back pool users any money they paid for memberships. The pool will be closed for at least six months during the project.

Announced the Duxbury Open Space and Recreation Committee’s

nature scavenger hunt will take place at the Myles Standish Reservation on Crescent Street on Sunday, May 17 at 1 pm. The event is free and will take place in light rain.

Appointed Pauline Flynn and John Madden to the Old Colony Elderly Services for a one-year term.

notifying snow plowers to begin their routes. Selectmen agreed these messages can be sent without prior town man- ager approval. Selectmen also asked Nord about the efforts to regionalize the town’s emergency dispatch system. Nord said towns in Plymouth County have been awarded a $50,000 grant to hire a consultant to investigate the cost and feasibility to link

the dispatches of local towns. Funds for the study come from a 911 tax on cell phone use. Nord said one idea is to have the regional dispatch under the Plymouth County sheriff’s department, but he had doubts about this, because the state is taking over this department. Barnstable County has a good regional dispatch, Nord said. Selectmen asked for future up- dates.

Sue Lawrence of the Duxbury Student Union, pictured with Alison Austin, was the featured speaker at the Rotary Club meeting.

Rotary Club news

S ue Lawrence, representing the Duxbury Student

Union, spoke to the Club about efforts to continue to

operate a portion of the Wright Building, the former

library, for the students in grades six through 12, especially the

students of the Middle School. This past year the students have had a place to go to play, study or socialize under supervision. Because of the cost of running the drop-in center, there are con- cerns about its opening for another year. Volunteers are being sought to staff the center and raise funds to support it. The Student Union membership consists of 164 students and typical daily use is about 30-59 kids a day. The DSu shares the Wright Building with the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society. Past President George Prebola sat in for President Bruce Rutter. Plans for the Mother’s Day breakfast were discussed. Ocean Spray has again made a very generous donation of juices to be dispensed at the breakfast. Chris Blake showed photographs showing that the Uganda dormitory is finished and new fundraising will start to help sup- port the students. Chuck Walker announced that his grandson has been accepted to West Point.

Chandler celebrates Arbor Day

E very year the Com- munity Garden Club of Duxbury cele-

brates Arbor Day by donating tree seedlings to the first grad- ers at Chandler School. Blue Spruce trees were given to each child this year. On Thurs- day, April 30, the children put on a delightful, enthusiastic program of songs and poetry by the flagpole in front of the school. The trees come from the Massachusetts Tree Wardens’ and Foresters’ Association. This group assists many Ar- bor Day programs in schools throughout the state by grow- ing a variety of high quality tree seedlings for school chil- dren to plant. Arbor Day began in the state of Nebraska in 1872. Ju- lius Sterling Morton, at that time a member of the state’s Board of Agriculture, was the man who promoted the idea.

Duxbury Idols shine on stage

continued from page one

Larusso had the classic Miss America reaction, put- ting her hands over her face as tears of joy came to her eyes. “I really didn’t think I was going to win. It was a little shocking.” Larusso said. This was Larusso’s first year participating in Duxbury Idol, and she was nervous, but as soon as she got on the stage everything became second na- ture. “When I was waiting back- stage, I kept thinking, ‘what are my words?’ but then it all came to me,” Larusso said. The mood for the eve- ning was set, with the crowd screaming for their favorite singers with posters and wav- ing light up microphones. The competition was tough, but the judges were very quali- fied to do the job. The judg- es were Superintendent of Schools Susan Skeiber, who has judged Duxbury Idol for two years; John Badger, who has been involved with music for 30 years and participates in various bands throughout the South Shore; Beth MacLeod, a professional singer and voice teacher who attended the pres- tigious Julliard School of Mu-

sic as an opera performance major; and Brian Stratton, a professional performer and record producer who has both performed and produced with several big-name bands. The contestants were also highly qualified for the per- formance, since they were the nine chosen finalists out of about 30 who auditioned. Their talents included not only singing, but playing an instru- ment while singing, and others composed their own music. Put simply, the decision was going to be tough. The voting was done in phases. First, the audience vot- ed the nine down to six. Next, the judges picked the final three and then the winner was cho- sen by the people of Duxbury. All contestants memorized and were prepared to sing four songs, three to get through all the elimination phases and one as the winner’s encore. “The first song should be something upbeat and some- thing the little kids would know,” said Michelle Duch arme. That is why she chose “The Climb” by Hannah Mon- tana for her first song. Duch arme felt that since the second song is for the judges, it should

be something that really show- cases your voice, but doesn’t have to be well-known. The third song should be well- known but should show off the singer’s voice, since that is the last song to be judged. The fourth song should just be fun because you won, Ducharme said. 2009 Duxbury Idol win- ner Larusso has been singing on stage since she was seven but has never had professional training except from her dad, who is a member of a band. She is very excited about her prizes, especially the oppor- tunity to record her own CD because her dream is to be a professional singer.

Pondering the next step for police and fire

T he members of the Public Safety Feasibility

Committee are frustrated, and it’s tough to blame

them. These volunteers have spent the last three

years working to develop plans for new police and fire department facilities, something most residents would agree is a clear need. They listened a year ago, when Town Meeting asked them to investigate the possibility of a combined public safety building. They cut costs when residents worried the projects were too expensive. Yet, here they are, two failed ballot initiatives later, back at square one with nothing to show for their efforts. The problems at the police and fire stations aren’t going away. Just this week, a water leak in the fire station caused thousands of dollars in damage –– to a station that’s probably just going to be renovated anyway. Yet, the taxpayers of Duxbury have the final say here. If they’re not happy with the proposals, it’s time to go back to the drawing board. Feasibility Committee members still believe the best plan is the $5.2 million renovation for the fire station and a new police station on town-owned land off Mayflower Street. They say there’s not much more that can be done in terms of making the projects cheaper, and that the task at hand is convincing residents that the projects are worthwhile. Unless the economic climate changes in a hurry, that may be a tall task. Voters at the polls in March were faced with the prospect of spending a lot of money if they approved all the projects, and a new high school and/or middle school project still looms on the horizon.

It seems that the public safety station proponents did

a good job convincing Town Meeting voters of the plan’s

necessity, but not so much the public at large. Perhaps that’s the strategy going forward, taking the discussion out of the forum of town hall and making a more direct appeal to voters.

A public information session held at one of Duxbury’s

schools, for example, may reach a demographic that doesn’t always follow Town Meeting with rapt attention. Also, if one looks at the election results, the fire station project came closer to passing even though public sentiment seems to be that the police station is more necessary. This speaks to the work Duxbury’s firefighters did in “selling” their project to the community. Perhaps a more concerted effort on the part of the police would help close that gap. This, combined with a transparent effort to squeeze every penny out of the plans, may just get the town the public safety facilities it deserves.

What I (can do) on my summer vacation

The Clipper is seeking a college-age journalism student for a summer internship position. This is a great opportunity to learn the ins-and-outs of community journalism, and to get real hands-on experience. The intern will be expected to work in the office three days a week, and he or she will be responsible for three bylined stories a week. The internship is unpaid, but the job has been done for college credit in the past. Interested persons should send a resume and electronic clippings (if available) to Justin Graeber at editor@duxbury- clipper.com

Westwinds bookshop was damaged on April 17 when a car crashed through the storefront, but the business is open again and owners Christopher and Marilyn Haraden are grateful for the community support.

work of everyone involved in helping us deal with this ac- cident, including the Duxbury Police and Fire Departments, Capeway Towing, the guys at Yard Masters, Ken Savard and his crew, Towne & Coun- try Plumbing, Town Manager Richard MacDonald and the town’s inspectional services department, our fellow busi- nesspeople at Hall’s Corner, especially the good folks at Les Ms./SportWorks and Casey’s Fine Wines & Spirits, who have offered support and assistance – everything from a helping hand on the day of the accident to oven-fresh muffins in the after- math (Thanks, Foodie’s!), and Duxbury’s hometown news- paper, The Clipper, for getting news of the incident posted so quickly on the Web to inform the community, and also to let people know that no one was injured. We also are indebted to our loyal customers – some of whom were willing to sidestep the debris and shop for books on the day of the accident – who have continued to support us and offer words of encour- agement. We’re working hard to bring back all of the prod- ucts you’ve come to expect at Westwinds, and we appreciate your patience as we rebuild. Please stop by to say “Hel- lo” and check on our progress. We’re grateful for your contin- ued support, as we need it now more than ever! Marilyn and Christopher Haraden Westwinds Bookshop

been eventful at Westwinds Bookshop, and we appreciate the opportunity to let people know about our progress in get- ting things back to normal. We are so grateful that no one was injured in the accident on Friday afternoon, April 17, when an SUV crashed through our front wall, destroying the bulk of our greeting card in- ventory and causing enough damage that the entire front wall of our shop needs to be reconstructed. Both the driver, Nancy Oates, and our faithful bookseller on duty at the time, LuAnn Keenan, were shaken up, but not hurt, by that day’s events. The shop itself is another matter, although we are work- ing hard to restore as much as we can as quickly as possible. Paul Dahlen and the crew from Yard Masters and our land- lord, Derek Cavanaugh, moved quickly to clean up the damage. New windows are on order and framing for the front wall will start very soon. In the mean- time, the shop is clean and the building is safe for shopping and browsing.

Yard sale helped animal shelter ——————

A heartfelt thank you

to the Duxbury Stu-

dent Union mem-

bers for donating the unsold stuffed animals and miscel- laneous sheets, blankets, etc. from the Green Yard Sale to the Duxbury Animal Shelter. In the spirit of recycling, the dogs (and some of our more adven-

turous cats) will be thrilled with their new toys. This generous donation will keep us in good supply for quite some time. We have wonderful cats, kittens and dogs available for adop- tion. As always, we are seeking volunteers. If you have an hour to spare and if dog walking in lovely Duxbury conservation

land or kitten socialization time sounds like fun, please stop by the shelter and fill out a volun- teer application. Thanks again to the DSU!

Are we committed to reform?

By Daniel K. WeBster

L ast week, Republican lawmakers offered an amendment to the pro- posed House budget that would save

the Commonwealth $690 million to $1 billion over the next five years and at least $160 mil- lion in Fiscal Year 2010. This savings could be realized by shifting mem-

bers of the state sponsored healthcare program known as “MassHealth” from “fee for service” to “managed care” plans. The “fee for service” plans provide coverage for ser- vices utilized on an as needed basis, such as treatment during

an emergency room visit for a particular injury or illness. “Managed care” plans are designed to improve healthcare ac- cess and reduce costs by focusing treatment on primary care, coordination of care and ad- ditional care management. “Managed care” is preventative by nature and helps reduce health- care costs by preventing illness. Not only have studies shown that this shift would save money, they have also shown it would improve the quality of medical care available through MassHealth. There has been much discussion at the Statehouse over the past few months about reform in an effort to save tax payer dollars

during tough economic times. The House and Senate have passed various versions of pension and transportation reform, but none of these re- forms have reached final enactment and there is little identifiable cost savings in any of this legislation. This amendment had quantifiable cost savings. Democratic lawmakers have been quick to criticize their Republican colleagues for refus- ing to support tax increases. Some claim Re- publicans have no real solutions or alternatives to deal with the state’s financial problems. Yet, when sensible reform with significant and tan- gible cost savings, as well as with improvement to the quality of medical care was recently pro- posed, House Democrats voted it down on the heels of their 25 percent sales tax increase. Are we really committed to reform? Representative Webster represents the 6th Plymouth District.

Tilting at carbon

By DaviD a. Mittell, Jr.

C ivics came easily enough but I needed two tries to get through high school chemistry. Today, I refrain from ranking scientific theories but do

know the signs when, to paraphrase the Cadet Prayer at West Point, academics, journalists or politicians are content with half-truth when the whole won’t do. From its first attempt to influence public policy, what is called the “climatology community” has often been disingenuous in the way it has presented the theory of carbon-induced global warming. The behavioral evidence:

The “community” thinks as one and tolerates no dissent. Doubters dismissed as “Holocaust-deniers” -- a despicable analogy. Exaggeration and mendacious alarmism -- a typical example the public television program narrated by a Dr. Burke, who depicted mature palm trees in Massachusetts in

2030!

The use of weather as synecdoche for climate by people who know better, but as a matter of propaganda are content to enter a heat wave in August or a thaw in January into “evidence.” “Heads I win, tails you lose!” If August and January offer up frosts and frozen-over saltwater ports, this too is written into the script as climatic instability predicted by the theory. This is plausible, but it does remind me of how an earlier cohort of well-educated true believers could rationalize anything Stalin did, even when he turned on a dime, as explained by the “class struggle.” A year ago, I had the privilege as a mere editorialist of reading, along with scientists of several disciplines, the draft of a paper on the causes of global warming written by Massachusetts native Dr. Peter Langdon Ward. Dr. Ward studied earthquakes, plate tectonics and volcanoes for 27 years at the U.S Geological Survey. Viewing climate change over the whole history of the Earth, Dr. Ward noticed that warming patterns have appeared consistently during periods of very high volcanic activity. The immediate effect is cooling; warming follows as sulfur dioxide crowds out (my term) the oxidizing capacity of the OH radical. Small but relatively excessive amounts of sulfur dioxide thus pull the plug on the “tropospheric vacuum cleaner,” causing concentrations of greenhouse gases to build up, leading to rapid warming. Carbon dioxide increases as well, but primarily as an effect, not a cause of warming. The warming ocean releases carbon dioxide just as a warm bottle of soda pop goes flat. From borings in Greenland’s ice core, Dr. Ward has studied the ice ages of recent geologic times, the warming and cooling trends of the Christian Era, unto the reduction of anthropomorphic sulfur after 1979 in the effort to delimit acid rain. His findings are confirmatory, and he notably believes that the 18 percent reduction in atmospheric sulfur achieved by the acid-rain program had the effect of stopping further warming after 2000. But with hundreds of new coal- fired, sulfur-producing power plants opening around the world, the pause in warming is about to end. Removing sulfur dioxide is simpler than removing carbon dioxide and the technology for doing so is more advanced. If sulfur, not carbon, is the main culprit, the implication is that climate change can be controlled without also pulling down capitalism and democracy. Distressing to some, but profoundly assuring to serious policy makers. Dr. Ward’s paper was at first rejected out of hand by several scientific publications. But on Feb. 11 it was introduced at a press conference in Chicago and simultaneously published by the physics journal “Thin Solid Film.” The late David Brinkley used to say that if you want an honest opinion, “find a man who has paid his mortgage” -- who remembers life’s pressures but no longer has a personal stake in the game. Peter Ward has seen the tempest of life from many perspectives for a very long time. Like Prospero in Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” his wisdom becalms the spirit. At his retirement home in Wyoming his company -- Teton Tectonics -- is a one-man band. To incur the wrath of the carbon-is-the-one lobby would seem to be absurdly quixotic. Peter will face such a storm with good humor and perfect integrity. I do not endorse the findings, just the man. David A. Mittell, Jr. is a Boston-based syndicated col- umnist.

Town ready for swine flu

continueD froM page one

This preparation includes completing the Board of Health’s “communicable dis- ease plan” that was begun in response to the avian flu scare of two years ago, and keeping all town departments apprised of the latest developments. “Each department has been advised of what’s going on and how it can affect them,” Nord said, adding: “We are aware of the situation and are updated frequently. We have plans in place so when the call for help comes in, we will be there.” Selectmen agreed to re- view the draft and discuss it with Nord at a later date. As the town’s emergency operations director, Nord said he had a meeting this week with MacDonald, School Su- perintendent Sue Skeiber, and Health Agent Tracy Mayo about swine flu, or the H1N1 virus. He said he has been in constant communication with Mayo since the flu came to the U.S. and he is continually monitoring the situation. “We are prepared if any- thing happens in Duxbury,” said Nord. As of May 4, there were 34 confirmed cases of swine flu in Massachusetts and 286 cases nationwide in thirty six states with one death, accord- ing to Department of Public Health’s Web site, www.mass. gov/blog/publichealth. Each new case is expected to fully recover and none were hos- pitalized. The closest case to Duxbury is a 33-year old from Plymouth whose test came back positive. When reached this week, Mayo said the best defense

Duxbury’s Health Agent tracy Mayo said the town has been distribut- ing reminders like this one to combat the potential spread of the flu.

against the H1N1 virus is pre- vention. Practicing good health hygiene will help reduce the spread of the disease. Mayo said that frequent hand wash- ing, especially after coughing or sneezing, is important. It is also important to stay home from work or school if you are sick, said Mayo. Mayo has created a “cough and hand washing etiquette” poster that she is distribut- ing to schools, businesses and restaurants around town this week. “We’re just trying to pro- vide information to the public on how you can protect your- self,” Mayo said. Mayo said the state De- partment of health will notify

her if any confirmed cases of swine flu appear in Duxbury. The state is doing the testing for the virus that was previ- ously done by the Centers for Disease Control and Preven- tion in Atlanta, she said, so the results are coming in faster. The state is also having con- ference calls with boards of health in every community as well as doctors and hospitals to keep them up-to-date on the latest developments. For more information, go to the Department of Public Health’s website www.mass. gov/blog/publichealth or visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s website at www.cdc.gov/swineflu.

Students and community to fight hunger

The “Empty Bowls” event will take place at the Perform- ing Arts Center on May 13 from 6-7:30 p.m. One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank. Attendees will enjoy a simple meal of soup, bread, bev- erages and dessert, all for only $10, and will get to take home a hand-painted bowl as well.
