Con- Bostonians are afraid their is pleased to announce that Whole Foods will be featured as the leading sponsor of the organization's New England Classic Tour de Cure bicycling fundraiser this July. The New England Classic Tour de Cure is a two day, 150 mile or seven day 550 mile cycling adventure in the picturesque and historical settings of New England's scenic seacoasts and bold mountain ranges, taking place July 12 - July 18, 2014. Cyclists will enjoy indoor accommodations, full breakfasts and dinners and much more while striving to complete their personal two day or seven day bicycling adventure, and making a difference in the fight to STOP Diabetes. "The New England Classic Tour de Cure is a very special ride as it unites people who passionately engage in a multi- day cycling vacation to improve the lives of people affected by diabetes," said Chris Boynton, Executive Director for the New England Division of the American Diabetes Associa- tion. "We are thrilled to be welcoming Whole Foods as our leading sponsor in this event, as their commitment to eat- ing well and leading a healthy lifestyle reflects one of the very important messages we strive to communicate." The ADA of New England hosts a total of five Tour de Cure fundraising events, though the New England Classic is the only multi-day ride. Other Tour de Cure events will launch this spring in Topsfield, MA; Kennebunks, ME; Narragansett, RI and Durham, CT. These events are designed for everyone, from the occasional bike rider to the experienced cyclist, with routes ranging from 3 mile family rides to 100 mile Century Rides. Routes vary by location. For more information, visit www, tournewengland. It is estimated that 25.8 million Americans have diabe- tes, and another 79 million people have pre-diabetes. Sig- nificantly more adults have diabetes than the percentage of those diagnosed with the disease reflects, according to Boynton. Whether type I, type 2 or gestational diabetes, the condition involves the body's inability to properly me- tabolize glucose, and is managed in part by following a healthy and balanced diet in order to maintain a target blood glucose range. "Whole Foods Market is proud to support the American Diabetes Association and Tour de Cure," said Laura Derba, Whole Foods Market regional president. "We are commit- ted to supporting the health of our stakeholders and the communities we serve through healthy eating education. Events like the Tour de Cure are an exciting way to raise awareness of the crucial role food and lifestyle choices have on our health."

Government Center Station Closure Beginning March 22, 2014, Government Center Station will be closed for two years while crews work to upgrade the station into a fully acces- sible, safer, modern, more comfortable facility. The Government Center Station Improvements Project {the Project) will combine improvements to the Green Line Station, Blue Line Sta- tion and Cambridge Street/ Government Center Plaza, that will bring Government Center Station into compli- ance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Boston Center for Indepen- dent Living Agreement. Cur- rently, access to and from Government Center Station is provided solely by stair- ways and escalators. The recommended path of travel for Green Line cus- tomers desiring access to the Blue Line is to travel to Haymarket Station and transfer to the Orange Line toward Forest Hills (south- bound). Customers should transfer to the Orange Line at State Street Station for F I I i I I 781-286-CASH [ ] -- EXTRA SPENDING MONEY-- ,p. ,lll]l[iIllRe]llkllOilJ'dOJi , #'. Blue Line connections. The recommended path of travel for Blue Line customers de- siring access to the Green Line is to-travel to State Street and transfer to the Orange Line toward Oak Grove (northbound). Custom- ers should then transfer at Haymarket Station for Green Line connections. For customers who desire to travel outside the system or use Hubway during the months when Hubway is in operation, the distance be- tween State Street and Down- town Crossing as well as State Street and Park Street is minimal. It should be noted, however, that custom- ers who exit and re-enter the system will be charged again if they do not have an unlim- ited weekly or monthly pass. The last downtown stop will generally be the following for each branch: B Line (Boston College) will end at Park Street; C Line (Cleveland Circle) will end at North Station; D Line (River- side) will end at Park Street during rush hours and North Station at other times; E Line will end at Lechmere. Additionally, Bowdoin Sta- tion will extend its operating hours and will be open during all hours of service for the duration of Government Center's closure. f LUCIA RISTORANTE & BAR Traditional Italian Cuisine 415 Hanover Street, Boston 617.367.2353 11 MountVernon Street, Winchester 781.729.0515 PPivate I=unction oorns fop any Occasion Ckristenin9 biJal Sl00owe,00 BoI00, Show0000 !
