Jehlen, Garballey Chair Joint Ways and Means Committee Hearing in Medford

State committee hearing at Medford City Hall

Senator Patricia Jehlen (D-Somerville) and Representative Sean Garballey (D-Arlington) co-chaired a hearing of the Joint Committee on Ways and Means yesterday at Medford City Hall. Hearings have been scheduled across the Commonwealth to gather information for building the FY16 state budget. The last of these hearings, in which members of the public are invited to testify before the committee, will take place on Monday, April 13th at the State House.

The hearing focused on agencies within the Executive Office of Health & Human Services, with opening testimony provided by Secretary Marylou Sudders. Further testimony was given by the heads of the following agencies: Department of Children and Families, Department of Youth Services, Department of Transitional Assistance, Department of Developmental Disabilities, Disabled Persons Protection Commission, Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission, Massachusetts Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Massachusetts Commission for the Blind, and the Office of Refugees and Immigrants.

“These agencies provide crucial services to the residents of the Commonwealth,” said Senator Jehlen. “The state-wide Joint Ways and Means hearings allow members of the committee an opportunity to gather information and insight from the administration, which is instrumental in crafting the state’s budget.”

“It was an honor to welcome over twenty members of the Committee on Ways and Means to the hearing held in the City of Medford,” said Representative Garballey. “The testimony provided by agencies under the purview of Health and Human Services was informative, compelling, and critical in ensuring that the FY16 House budget proposal reflects these programs as essential to the citizens of the Commonwealth.”

After the hearings have ended, the House will debate its version of the state budget in late April, followed by the Senate in May.

Celebrate Earth Day with the Mystic River Watershed Association

Make Torbert MacDonald Park a Better Place to Run, Hike, Bike, and Play

Join together with Mystic River communities in the celebration of Earth Day (April 22nd) by cleaning up litter and debris that has gathered throughout the long and treacherous winter in Torbert MacDonald Park, part of the Mystic River Reservation. Volunteers are invited to lend a hand in beautifying the award-winning landscape design of the meandering paths, trees, and open lawns providing space for rest and enjoyment in a riverside setting. This event is part of Park Serve Day – MassParks annual statewide day of volunteer service during Earth Week.

Meet on Saturday, April 25 at 9:00AM in the parking lot next to the State Police Barracks. Volunteers are asked to RSVP online.

The Mystic River Watershed is the most urbanized and densely populated watershed in Massachusetts, with over half a million people living in its 76 square miles. Due to its long industrial history and aging sewer systems, the water quality of the river is severely degraded and access to the riverfront is limited. Despite these challenges, residents, community groups, and organizations are working to improve the Mystic River, its tributaries, and surrounding communities.

MHS Drama Club Presents ‘Guys & Dolls’ April 9 – 11

The Medford High School Drama Club is proud to announce this year’s musical – Guys & Dolls, a musical fable of Broadway, based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. Students will take the stage at the school’s Caron Theater on Thursday, with additional performances Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as a matinee on Saturday.

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys & Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including TONY Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers. Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys & Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy featuring a cast of memorable characters including Nathan Detroit, Sky Masterson, Miss Adelaide, Sarah Brown, Nicely-Nicely Johnson, and Harry the Horse, among others. Guys & Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

Tickets for Guys & Dolls can be purchased at the door before each performance. Prices are $6 for students and $12 for adults. Performance times are 7:30 p.m. for the evening shows and 2:30 p.m. for the Saturday matinee. For further information email Sarah Grant at

Krystle Campbell Scholarships Awarded to UMass Students

Chancellor J. Keith Motley and UMass Trustee Richard Campbell presented UMass Boston student Micki Hall with a $5,000 Krystle Campbell Scholarship at a campus event celebrating the Boston Marathon and honoring Campbell, a former UMass Boston student who was a victim of the 2013 marathon bombings.

Miriam Asangong, a UMass Dartmouth student, also received a scholarship.

The Krystle Campbell Scholarship is presented to students pursuing business degrees. Campbell attended UMass Boston from 2005 to 2007 and received a degree posthumously.

“I feel very privileged and touched that I will be receiving this scholarship in the memory of Krystle Campbell, who was an outstanding citizen here in the city of Boston,” Hall said.

A Florida native, Hall is a junior in the College of Management, majoring in finance and minoring in economics. While at UMass Boston, Hall has held four internships in finance, including roles at John Hancock and the State Street Corporation.

She has served as a mentor with Strong Women, Strong Girls, started a community service club at UMass Boston, and volunteered at the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program at Action for Boston Community Development. After graduating, Hall plans to become a financial analyst.

The scholarship announcement was held in the Campus Center’s Alumni Lounge, which fittingly houses a portrait of Krystle Campbell.

“This scholarship means so much to the UMass community and providing other students the opportunity to pursue their academic dreams is a worthy tribute to Krystle, who was so dedicated to learning,” Motley said.

The Krystle Campbell Scholarship was started by UMass Trustee Richard Campbell and his wife Barbara. Campbell is not related to Krystle, but like her, grew up in Medford and attended UMass Boston.

“Krystle has been a source of inspiration to me personally and to so many throughout the UMass community, and we are proud to announce the first two recipients of the scholarship named in her honor,” Richard Campbell said. “This event, the scholarship fund and the 2015 ‘Running for a Reason’ Marathon team are worthy tributes to Krystle’s dedication, passion and spirit.”

Paralympian and Boston Marathon champion Dr. Cheri Blauwet also spoke at the event.

he scholarship fund currently stands at $440,000 in cash and commitments. The goal is to increase the fund to the $1 million level. Serving as the not-for-profit partner for the Krystle Campbell Scholarship endowment, the UMass Foundation is responsible for receiving and managing private gifts.

The event also celebrated the 2015 UMass Marathon team, “Running for a Reason: Krystle’s Legacy.” The team features nine runners, including local business executives, and UMass students, graduates, and staff. Funds raised at the Marathon will benefit the Krystle Campbell endowed scholarship fund. For more information about the Running for a Reason team or to donate, please visit

Knight Boosts Alumni Scholarship Fund With Another Donation

Medford High School graduate and City Councilor Adam Knight has once again made a generous contribution to the Medford High School Alumni Association (MHSAA).

Medford’s Bates Honored at Islanders’ Decades Night

It’s one of the few times a Medford native can celebrate a New York team; on Saturday Medford’s Shawn Bates was among several New York Islanders hockey players honored by the team’s “Decades Night.”

Bates is a 1993 Medford High School graduate who went on to be a star hockey player at Boston University before playing for ten years in the NHL, seven of which was spent with the New York Islanders.

“I’ve never heard the building louder than when Shawn scored that penalty shot goal,” former player Ken Morrow said in an Islanders’ article in which he referenced Bates’ legendary game-winning goal in game four of the 2002 playoffs.

More details are available from the Islanders’ website. Photos courtesy Mike Nestor.
