Sen. Jehlen Appointed to State Committees

Today Senator Jehlen (D-Somerville) was appointed by Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst) to the National Conference on State Legislatures (NCSL) Committee on Education and to the Council of State Governments (CSG) Eastern Region Committee on Education as the alternate. Senator Jehlen will represent Massachusetts at national conferences with legislators from across the country to discuss issues currently facing our residents. The Senator will share ideas, learn from lawmakers around the country, and illustrate how the Commonwealth continues to be a leader among states in conversations surrounding education.

“Congratulations to Senator Jehlen on her appointment to the NCSL and CSG committees,” said Senate President Stan Rosenberg. “Senator Jehlen’s intellect, work ethic, and experience will be a tremendous contribution to the both committees.”

“It is an honor to be appointed to both of these committees,” said Senator Jehlen. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with colleagues from legislatures across the country to develop best practices in state education policy.”

Founded in 1975, the National Conference on State Legislatures is a national organization formed to support, defend, and strengthen state legislatures. The NCSL has “helped states remain strong and independent by giving them the tools, information, and resources to craft the best solutions to difficult problems.” The NCSL has fought against unwarranted actions in Congress and saved states more than $1 billion.

The Council of State Governments is our nation’s only organization serving all three branches of state government. The CSG is a region-based forum that fosters the exchange of insights and ideas that help state officials shape public policy. This offers unparalleled regional, national, and international opportunities to network, develop leaders, collaborate, and create problem solving partnerships.

Council Considering Steps to Address Opiate Addiction

The Medford City Council is considering creating a task force and an ordinance for a substance abuse prevention coordinator position to address opiate addiction.

According to City Councilor Paul Camuso, there have been three heroin overdose deaths in Medford in March, and five since January. Medford’s Board of Health Director Karen Rose said Hallmark Health is treating three to four people who have overdosed everyday.

Those alarming statistics were brought up Wednesday night during a special meeting of the Council to discuss the opiate addiction problem and its effect on the community. School and city health officials, the Police and Fire Chiefs, police officers, a representative from Armstrong Ambulance, the Jail Diversion Program’s Cheryl Delafano, and concerned community members came together to discuss the issue and specific steps the city can take to help.

Rose said that there are “huge gaps” between the preventative measures that are in place, such as educational programs about drug abuse in schools, and actual treatment and recovery for people who become addicted to substances. She said the state has good treatment facilities but lacks the capacity to accommodate the growing number of addicts. Rose said she knows people who have had to go out of state for treatment. A woman with a son in a recovery program said she had no choice but to send him to Florida since she was unable to find a spot for him in Massachusetts.

The “lack of beds” issue was something that several people indicated was a frustrating problem. A woman who is a recovered alcoholic said detox[ification] is not enough to put someone on the road to recovery; treatment is needed beyond the medical response.

“The nature of addiction is not to be able to wait,” she said, noting that when there is an opportunity to help an addict it can easily be lost when it takes too long to get help or there is no help available at all.

If created, the substance abuse prevention position would help families connect to the right services. The task force, according to Rose, would bring together “stakeholders” such as parents, public health officials, law enforcement, EMS, and others to address the opiate addiction issue.

The Council will discuss an ordinance to create the new position at its next meeting on Tuesday, March 24. The request to establish a task force should be before the Council within the next few weeks.

City Council president Fred Dello Russo, Jr. said Wednesday was “not our last meeting” and several people expressed a strong desire to have a larger community meeting about opiate addiction and how members of the community can come together to help.

In related news, Medford Overcoming Addiction is holding a vigil on Sunday, March 22 at 5PM at Medford City Hall in remembrance of people who have lost their lives to addiction.

‘Boston: Origin of American Slavery’ Presentation at Royall House Wednesday

Braxton and Reid“Boston: Origin of American Slavery,” an “illustrated talk,” will be delivered by local journalists Lisa Braxton and Alex Reid at the Royall House at 7:30PM on Wednesday.

Captain William Pierce piloted his ship Desire toward Boston into the inner harbor as onlookers watched from the frozen shoreline. It was February 1638. Like the Mayflower voyage many years earlier, the Desire carried passengers who would begin new lives in the New World. But these people were not Puritans or their countrymen. They were people of a different sort. They were African-born slaves.

Built in a Marblehead shipyard, the Desire was the first American-built slave ship in our national history. Up to this moment, slavery had been a European enterprise. But the Desire’s arrival in Boston Harbor that cold day was a historic moment, for it presaged Boston’s age of slavery and the laws and social customs that encouraged the buying and selling of human beings until well after the Revolutionary War.

The event is free for Royall House members and $5 for non-members. The Royall House is located at 15 George Street.

Medford Man Accused of Animal Cruelty

Ryan Baker- Allison Goldsberry

Medford Police say video evidence helped them nab a Medford man accused of animal cruelty.

Ryan Baker, 32, was arrested and charged with three counts of cruelty to animals, a felony. Police say Baker’s neighbor witnessed him beating his girlfriend’s pit bull, Bullet, and the neighbor handed over video that allegedly shows Baker punching, kicking, dragging, and throwing the dog on three separate occasions. Those incidents took place in December 2014 and January and March of this year, according to information released by police.

According to police, Bullet is in good health except for a cut above his right eye. He was checked out by police and Medford’s Animal Control Officer, Patrick Hogan. Police say the dog’s owner had no idea what had been happening to Bullet. The dog was released into her custody and is said to be “well taken care of other than his exposure to [Ryan] Baker.”

Baker was arraigned in Somerville District Court on Tuesday. More details about his arraignment will be posted when available on Wednesday.
