Turning Tragedy Into Motivation To Make a Difference

2012 MM Journey recipient, Elaine, enjoying a surprise visit from Wally The Green Monster!

It is the news nobody wants to hear. The realization that one you hold so dear is facing the end of their days.

Life-threatening illnesses have a huge impact on those afflicted and the loved ones around them. Caleb Ginsberg of Amherst, New Hampshire experienced this for himself five years ago when, not just one, but three of those closest to him were diagnosed with advanced stages of cancer in the same week.

His grandmother. His aunt. A good friend who he considered family. All of them facing the reality that their lives will be cut short.

The overwhelming feelings of sadness and fear could have broken Ginsberg and his family, but something much different happened. A realization that these final moments were not to be a downward fall into despair, but a forward journey to be cherished.

In 2008, Ginsberg and his family came together to help other families come to the same realization with the founding of the Motivating Miles Foundation. read more

Police: Man Charged with Drug Possession, Attempting to Break into Car on Harrison Ave

Boston Police Department

Boston Police observed a man looking into the windows of a blue Volvo while trying to open the front driver’s side door on Harrison Avenue at about 1:55 a.m. on April 27.

The officer asked the suspect what was going on. The suspect reportedly turned around and looked frightened. The suspect reportedly started speaking rapidly. The officer thought that the suspect might try to make a run for it. The suspect stated that the vehicle belonged to his girlfriend. The suspect stated that he had just gotten off work and was looking to meet his girlfriend there.

The suspect then told officers that he was off of his medications and that his girlfriend was on her way with the medication. According to the police, the suspect’s story continued to change.

During his conversation with the officer, the suspect continued to place his hands in his pockets after the officer asked that he keep his hands in plain sight.

The officer decided to search the suspect and preformed a pat and frisk. The officer found a pill bottle in the suspect’s pocket. The suspect told the officer that this was his medication. The officer investigated the pill bottle and found 15 Suboxone and Promethazine. read more

Future Deficit Forces T into Tough Choices

In this file photo, the 39 battles its way to the bus stop. The T would have to increase fares or reduce service - including eliminating possibly 30 bus routes - if there is no additional funding in 2014.

MBTA officials have proposed service cuts and fare increases if there is no increase in funding, based on a $ 130 million projected budget deficit in fiscal year 2014.

Director of Strategic Initiatives for the MBTA Charles Planck said at a MBTA finance committee meeting that in order to close the budget gap T fares will need to go up 33 percent, which means subway fares would move up from $ 2 to $ 2.60, The Boston Globe reported Wednesday.

There was also talk at the meeting of a 15 percent fare increase coupled with the possible elimination of up to 30 bus routes, according to the Globe.

Gov. Deval Patrick unveiled an ambitious transportation plan in February that would potentially raise $ 1.02 billion per year for the next 10 years, some of which, if lawmakers adopt the proposal, could go toward MBTA services. The MBTA budget for fiscal year 2014 is due April 15, the Globe reports.

State House News Service Weekly Roundup: Backing Into Half a Cat

Governor Deval Patrick

Four years ago Gov. Deval Patrick went to the Legislature and asked for a 19-cent gas tax increase to fund transportation. They scoffed at his idea, then raised the sales tax and swore off further revenue increases, until now.

With that history in mind, a sense of irony settled over Beacon Hill this week, where there’s a possibility that the governor’s proposal to hike the income tax, lower the sales tax and eliminate some tax deductions might be driving lawmakers back to that moment in 2009 with a chance to reconsider.

It would be odd if House lawmakers turned later this month to the gas tax for new revenue. But not implausible. At least not anymore.

The plot thickened as the negotiations between House Speaker Robert DeLeo and Patrick – private up until now – spilled more into the public sphere. And with little to nothing else on the legislative agenda at the moment, all ears were tuned. read more
