Read Full Story Just a few days after the Boston Marathon bombing last year, lecturer Betsy McAlister Groves was asked to meet with a group of residents who lived on the same street as Martin Richards, the 8-year-old who had been killed by one of the bombs. The parents wanted Groves, a licensed clinical social worker and founding director of the Child Witness to Violence Project at Boston Medical Center, to help them figure out how to help their own children cope in the aftermath. “It was a very hard conversation,” she says.Last week, in light of the anniversary of the bombing, Groves spoke again, this time to the Ed School community. Her talk, “Helping Children with Scary and Stressful Events,” included her experience after the tragedy, both as a social worker and a parent, as well as her advice for the mostly student audience — some who had direct connections to the marathon tragedy.
My friend Roland and I often lament that we live on opposite coasts. We both have the kind of rare jobs that let us set our own hours (I’m a freelance journalist, he runs a tech company), so we share the luxury of being able to travel in the middle of the week while most other grownups are confined to cubicles. So when Roland called me up one Tuesday night saying he was in town and in need of an adventure, I knew a spur-of-the-moment road trip was in order. We spent a few minutes weighing the standard options within a 100-mile radius: hike White Oak Canyon/Cedar Run? drive out to Blue Hole for a swim? rent out kayaks on Lake Anna? And then it came to me.“We could pick one of the random islands of the Chesapeake and try to get to it?” I phrased it as a question, not entirely sure the suggestion was worthy of practical consideration. But he was immediately on board. I dragged around Google Maps, marveling at the tiny specks of land I never knew existed. We eventually settled on Solomons Island. He recalled the area since many years ago, his parents, both biologists, worked on a boat off its coast.The next morning greeted us with 78-degree sunshine and clear blue skies. We headed east in Roland’s black Volkswagen Jetta, and in two short hours, we made it to the southern tip of the Calvert Peninsula on Maryland’s Western Shore. There, where the Patuxent River unites with the Chesapeake Bay, lies Solomons Island.We parked by the boardwalk and walked around, acquainting ourselves with the historic fishing village. We passed through a marina and saw a couple of boats that hailed from the same place we did, D.C. In the boatyard, two men were making repairs on an impressive sailboat. Wandering down the riverwalk, we came across a little hut with a sign saying “Solomons Boat Rental.” Upon closer inspection, the shop was closed, but another sign had a number to call if no one was around. The office only had a few powerboats available. Since I had never driven a powerboat in my life before, we decided to go for it. We had the owner meet us in a couple hours so we had a bit more time to explore the island.We couldn’t visit Maryland without eating crabs, so we looked for a place serving up genuine Chesapeake crab cakes. Unfortunately, most restaurants were closed. We finally came to a little retail strip home to the CD Café. It was open and full of locals; plus, the name was too good to pass up. Only after we were seated did we realize the menu was devoid of crab dishes. Our mission was a failure. When our server recited the day’s specials, though, a crab cake sandwich answered our prayers. It smelled amazing coming out of the kitchen. The gently pan-fried cake was bursting with sweet lump meat – no pesky additives to interfere with the fresh, succulent crab.After lunch, we headed back to the boat rental office and took out a 19-foot bow rider. We set off up the Patuxent, with practically the entire river to ourselves. I took the wheel and gave driving a try. Breathing in the delicious air, I was exhilarated by the feeling of speed on the water. As we headed north, we stumbled upon several tiny coves and creeks concealed by the picturesque landscape. Each one was more peaceful than the last. Surrounded by lush greenery, we passed by the appropriately named Greenwell State Park on the left. It was so beautiful out there, so quiet, so incredibly scenic, I couldn’t believe we were just 60 miles from the nation’s capital. I realized that in about the same amount of travel time from D.C., I could be exploring any number of islands hidden within the great expanse of the Chesapeake.A couple months after my Solomons excursion, I enlisted another friend on a mission to discover the wetland island of Eastern Neck National Wildlife Refuge. And a couple months after that, I vowed to learn about and eventually visit the many other treasures the bay has been keeping secret all this time.Eastern Neck National Wildlife RefugeEastern Neck is a 2,285-acre island enjoying federal protection as part of the Chesapeake’s vast complex of national marshlands. The refuge is a birder’s paradise, providing habitat to dozens of species, including bald eagles, tundra swans, hawks, and various songbirds and waterfowl. Cradled by the converging waters of the Chester River and the Chesapeake Bay, its system of tidal marshes, upland forests, freshwater ponds, grasslands, and carefully managed croplands attract over 100,000 migratory and wintering birds seeking sustenance and sanctuary.Several hiking trails make it easy to explore this peaceful island on foot. Although swimming is not officially permitted in surrounding waters, passersby will likely encounter a few rule-breakers. Those who visit with boats in tow, however, can launch their kayaks or canoes from Bogles Wharf Landing, off the eastern edge of the refuge. Kayakers who’d rather rent can do so near the park’s entrance at the outfitter Eastern Neck Boat Rentals – just remember to bring cash, since this tiny shack of an operation does not accept credit cards or checks. The refuge itself also periodically hosts group kayaking nights for boat owners with a love of moonlight paddling.Solomons IslandFar less desolate than Eastern Neck, Solomons has a number of attractions in town, including waterside concerts, the Calvert Marine Museum, the Annmarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center, the Harbor Island Marina, a few great seafood houses, and even a tiki bar (cleverly named Tiki Bar). By land, get your juices flowing with a self-guided bike tour of the island. By water, the Patuxent Adventure Center rents out (and sells) SUP boards in addition to leading kayaking expeditions that introduce tourists to the local marine life.St. George IslandAlthough I may be biased by my own introduction to the island, I would say the best way to experience St. George is by sleeping on its shores, under the stars, with the waves gently lapping nearby.Private campgrounds on the beaches of St. George Island, where the Potomac River flows into the bay, include the family-owned Camp Merryelande and Far East Beach. The latter site has kayaks and canoes that campers can rent. In addition to swimming and kayaking, many visitors also catch their own lunch or dinner – either right off the beach or at one of the nearby fishing piers.Smith IslandThe ferry to Smith Island leaves twice daily, at 12:30pm and 5:00pm, from the nearby town of Crisfield (adjacent to Janes Island State Park – itself worth a visit for its secluded beaches and saltmarsh water trails). Kayaks can be taken on the passenger ferry for a small additional fee.The heart of America’s soft shell crab industry, Smith Island is part of a remote archipelago of arteries that pump life into the seafood economy up the coast. During warm months, visitors can watch the crabbing and crab picking in action. The Smith Island Crabmeat Co-op invites curious tourists to watch the picking process, either via an observation window, or up-close inside for $3 (crabmeat samples included).After feasting on soft shell crabs or crab cakes at one of the island’s restaurants or seafood markets, be sure to try a slice of Smith’s signature dessert, Smith Island Cake – 8 to 15 layers of yellow cake divided by sheets of icing, cream, and/or crushed candy bars and iced with a cooked chocolate fudge frosting.Tangier IslandTangier Island, population 727, is so isolated that its people have their own distinct dialect. Encircled by Virginia’s portion of the bay, the island was founded in the late 1600s by Cornish settlers with their Elizabethan parlance. Over the centuries, this has combined with islander mannerisms to create the unique island accent.Most families on Tangier rely on crabbing and fishing for their livelihoods. Watermen wake up at 3am to begin harvesting soft shell crabs or oysters. The fruits of their labor can be unpredictable; last year’s erratic weather yielded a crab surplus in the spring, and then a crab shortage in the summer. Visitors can get a taste of what it’s like to be a Chesapeake waterman by riding with a local captain for a crabbing tour of Tangier. In addition to crabbing tours, the bed and breakfast Hilda Crockett’s Chesapeake House offers eco-tours, birding trips and sunset boat excursions.Watts IslandThere is something astoundingly romantic to me about the notion of a deserted island. An uninhabited land practically right in my backyard, just a couple hours outside a city swarming with four million people. The tiny island of Watts can be visited on a day trip from Tangier via kayak or canoe (or other small boat), as it lies just a few miles east of the larger landmass. Few settings in this world can make us feel like explorers, wandering and discovering a strange and unknown place. Watts is one of them.

China faces a potential second wave of coronavirus infections due to a lack of immunity among its population, its government’s senior medical advisor has warned.After months of lockdowns and curbs on travel China has largely brought the virus under control, but fears of a second wave have risen as clusters have emerged in northeast provinces and in the central city of Wuhan.”The majority of… Chinese at the moment are still susceptible of the COVID-19 infection, because [of[ a lack of immunity,” Zhong Nanshan, the public face of government’s response to the pandemic, told CNN. Topics : But he added he believed data published after Wuhan was locked down in late January, and when the central government took control of the response, “will be correct”.The novel coronavirus has killed at least 309,296 people, according to a tally from official sources compiled by AFP, with scientists around the world racing to find a vaccine.Zhong cautioned that a “perfect” vaccine for a disease that the World Health Organization (WHO) says may never disappear could take “years”. “We are facing [a] big challenge,” Zhong added. “It’s not better than the foreign countries I think at the moment.” Zhong, who helped expose the scale of the 2003 outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), also said authorities in ground-zero Wuhan had under-reported cases during the early days of the pandemic.”The local authorities, they didn’t like to tell the truth at that time,” said Zhong, who was part of a team of experts sent to Wuhan to investigate the outbreak.”I didn’t believe that result [the number of cases reported] so I [kept] asking and then, you have to give me the real number,” he said.
By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow â€” Kimberly Wiens, a former director of the Wellington Public Library, has been charged with theft, a level 9 felony for allegedly defrauding the library $4,464.36.Sumner County Attorneyâ€™s office filed the complaint last week which states Wiens â€œunlawfully, feloniously, and willfully obtained by deception, control over property for compensation of 236.46 hours of vacation time with the intention to permanently deprive the owner, to wit: Wellington Public Library.â€Kim WiensThe complaint said the alleged crime took place on July 31, 2013, which was also Wiens last day of employment. Wellington Assistant Sumner County Attorney Mathew Mullen said, however, the compensation in question occurred over a number of years.Wiens, born in 1955, has been summoned to appear in Sumner County Court for first appearance on April 23, 2015 at 9 a.m.A theft felony, as opposed to a misdemeanor, is loss of property valued over $1,000. If convicted, Wiens could face up to six months in prison.Mullen said the charge came after a lengthy investigation by the Wellington Police Department.Library board minutes obtained by Sumner Newscow from May through August did not specifically address the alleged crime. Board members serving at the time were Mary Long, Peggy Stanfield, Maria Cornejo, Stacy Fair, Barbara Mudd, Roger Stallbaumer, Kelli McComb and Barbara Loop.On May 8, 2013, the board went into executive session for 30 minutes to discuss the annual directorâ€™s evaluation, and decided to take the evaluations home to look over and complete and return to then president Mary Long.Then, on June 12, 2013 in a two-hour meeting including two executive sessions, the minutes noted that Long and Wiens were to discuss the evaluation process on a Friday following the meeting.On July 17, with Wiens as library director, the board established a hiring committee to hire a new director with three applicants at the time applying.On the Aug. 14 meeting, July expenditures were not approved until questions were answered concerning multiple line items including checks for $4,539.40 and $8,335.90. Then interim library director Lisa Vargas said she would assist in getting further explanation of expenses.Then at the meeting, Sara Dixon, was introduced as the new Wellington Public Libraryâ€™s librarian starting on Monday, Aug. 19, 2013. She has occupied that position since.A WPL Library policy committee, which was formed separately from the library board, brought a list of recommendations which included:â€¢Two live signatures will be required on all checks. No rubber stamps will be used.â€¢Librarian will create checks from Quickbooks attaching all supporting documentation and provide those to the board president and treasurer for signatures.â€¢The two authorized signers are tasked with verifying the validity of checks with the documentation provided prior to signing all checks, including payroll.â€¢Normal check writing will coincide with payroll schedule.â€¢The four executive officers of the board will be authorized check signing and approvals. All need to go to the bank(s) to update the signature card.The library board approved all recommended policies.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password?

The unassuming industrial home to almost 1.5 million people has a team that played middling football in the Soviet era and most recently won promotion to the Russian Premier League in 2013.It is safe to say that its 27,000-seat stadium suited the needs of a club that has gone through many incarnations and is currently called simply Ural.Yet its size fell just short of FIFA’s carefully spelled out “minimum capacities of 30,000” requirement for stadiums hosting group stage World Cup matches.Four were scheduled for Yekaterinburg and Russia had a problem.Sinara-Development said it also could not simply rebuild the entire arena because it was listed as a cultural heritage site that needed to be preserved in its original form.Football’s world governing body not only agreed but applauded the unique way Yekaterinburg worked its way out of a potential mess.“Temporary seats are being installed in order to ensure that the renovation work would conserve the historical facade of the stadium and that maintenance costs are reduced after the World Cup,” a FIFA spokesman told AFP.The old stadium’s entrance featured six columns topped by sculptures of communist factory workers and athletes.These will stay in place for posterity’s sake.The FIFA spokesman also brushed aside any safety concerns.“Inspection visits and detailed reports have shown that the temporary seats in the Yekaterinburg Arena fully comply with all safety and security requirements,” he said.Ufimtsev said the stadium was “90 percent ready” and would be completed by the end of the year.Share on: WhatsApp Luzhniki stadium, one of the venues of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in RussiaHow does it feel to be on the outside looking in?Moscow, Russia | AFP | Football fans visiting Yekaterinburg in the Russian Urals for the 2018 World Cup will find out when they get seated in one of two temporary stands that fill empty plots of land next to the arena — originally too small to fit FIFA rules.Openings at each goal end of the stadium’s facade offer a remote view of the pitch but no protection from the sun or rain.And those unlucky enough to only get tickets for the extensions’ upper-most rows will stare out directly at the outer edge of the refurbished Yekaterinburg Arena’s circular roof.The UK’s perplexed Guardian newspaper suggested the entire ensemble might have come from “outer space” while USA Today screamed that it “couldn’t look any scarier”.All of which has left the construction company behind the 42-metre-tall (138-foot-tall) extensions sounding somewhat bemused.“This is a typical solution for sport facilities built for major international competitions,” Sinara-Development Director General Timur Ufimtsev told AFP.“In addition, you can see a beautiful panoramic view of Yekaterinburg itself since the stadium is in a central part of the city.”He added that the whole seating section is protected by “tall railings” to make sure no one falls off.The additions will make Yekaterinburg Arena into a 35,000-seater that will shrink back down in size to 23,000 once the stands are dismantled when all the tourists go home.– Cultural heritage site –The world media’s sceptical gaze fell on the 60-year-old stadium once it was selected as the eastern-most venue of the 12 hosting the marquee June 14-July 15 event.The Kremlin wanted to show off Russia’s cultural diversity and settled on Yekaterinburg — the mining capital of the tsars in which the late president Boris Yeltsin built his career.
Pittsburgh Penguins’ Sidney Crosby (87) celebrates with teammate Pascal Dupuis (9) as Ottawa Senators goalie Craig Anderson (41) reacts to Crosby’s second goal of the first period of Game 2 of an NHL hockey Stanley Cup second-round playoff series, in Pittsburgh on May 17. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)by Will GravesPITTSBURGH (AP) — Dan Bylsma has spent more than four years watching Sidney Crosby be Sidney Crosby.The Pittsburgh Penguins coach doesn’t think his captain has ever been better than he was during a 4-3 victory over Ottawa on Friday night that put Pittsburgh in firm control of the Eastern Conference semifinals.Recording his second career playoff hat trick on a dazzling rush, a somewhat fortunate bounce and a blistering slap shot, Crosby powered Pittsburgh to a 2-0 series lead and had his coach reaching for superlatives.“He’s done a lot in a lot of different games for our team in different areas,” Bylsma said. “But tonight I think it was his best.”Brenden Morrow added his first playoff goal in more than five years for Pittsburgh while Tomas Vokoun made 19 saves to remain unbeaten in four starts after taking over for struggling starter Marc-Andre Fleury.Just as importantly for the top-seeded Penguins, only two wins separate them from a trip to the conference finals for the first time since 2009, the last time they won the Stanley Cup. Game 3 is Sunday in Ottawa.“You want to play well at home and make sure you get here,” Crosby said. “We did that, we got two wins. I don’t think your mindset changes. We know that it’s going to get harder.”Kyle Turris, Colin Greening and Jean-Gabriel Pageau scored for the Senators, but couldn’t stop Ottawa from falling into a deep hole against the Eastern Conference’s top seed. The Senators have never won a playoff series after dropping the first two games.“I thought we got better in the game as it went along,” Ottawa coach Paul MacLean said. “We had the game to a one-goal game. We need to start the game where we finished.”The Senators insisted they didn’t have to play a perfect game to hang with the Penguins, pointing to the way they controlled play at even strength for long stretches in a 4-1 loss in the series opener Tuesday night. Ottawa insisted if it could stay out of the penalty box and convert when it had the man advantage, it would be right there.Despite doing both in the first period — killing two penalties and converting on Turris’ bank shot on the power play — the Senators still trailed 2-1.More to the point, they trailed Crosby 2-1.The Pittsburgh captain became the fifth player in franchise history to record 100 playoff points in spectacular fashion. He collected an innocent-looking pass at the Pittsburgh blue line then darted up the left side. He split two Senators — including Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Erik Karlsson — then ripped a shot under Anderson’s pad to give the Penguins the lead 3:16 into the game.Turris tied it with the first soft goal Vokoun has allowed since taking over for Fleury in Game 5 of the first-round series against the Islanders. Turris collected the puck near the left post and shot it off Vokoun and into the net.Crosby one-upped Turris a few minutes later, zipping down the left side once again. This time, Crosby appeared to be looking to pass, eyeing linemate Pascal Dupuis as they raced in on Anderson. Only Crosby didn’t pass. At the last second and without even peeking directly at Anderson, he flipped a wrist shot near the goal line that smacked off the goalie’s pad and across the goal line.“I was kind of running out of space to make a pass,” Crosby said. “I was hoping that it was able to find a way in somehow. I kind of saw him leaning a bit and didn’t know how much room was there but found a way to trickle in there.”Karlsson, who is still working his way back from an Achilles injury sustained when Pittsburgh’s Matt Cooke inadvertently slashed Karlsson with his skate, drew a hooking penalty on Cooke early in the second.Crosby didn’t need any fancy stickwork to record his first postseason hat trick since 2009. Instead, he powered a slap shot over Anderson’s glove from the left circle to push Pittsburgh’s lead to 3-1. Anderson skated to the bench in favor of backup Robin Lehner.Greening responded almost immediately after the switch, beating Vokoun with a sizzling wrist shot 40 seconds later to get the Senators within one. Morrow restored the two-goal lead by redirecting Paul Martin’s blast from just outside the crease. It was Morrow’s first postseason score since May 14, 2008, while playing for the Dallas Stars.The score was one of the few mistakes made by Lehner in his playoff debut. The 21-year-old was stellar otherwise in relief of Anderson. He made 20 saves in all, including series of point-blank stops.Lehner’s play steadied the Senators, and Ottawa kept coming, pulling within a goal 2:01 into the third period when Pageau tapped the puck across the line following a mad scramble in front.The Senators would get no closer and head home hoping to erase an 0-7 mark when it falls behind by two games in a playoff series.“You’re going to have some adversity,” Anderson said. “You have to win your games at home. That’s playoff hockey.”NOTES: Crosby reached the 100-point plateau in his 75th playoff game, the fifth-fastest player to reach the mark in NHL history … Pittsburgh went 1 for 6 on the power play and is 10 of 30 (33 percent) in the postseason.
