Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, MARCH 27, 2015 Saint Berthold by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Berthold was the son of the Count of Limoges, he was born in Malifaye in southwest France. Not much is known of his early life, it is believed that he studied in Paris where he was ordained a priest. He was a nephew of Aymeric of Malifaye, the Latin patriarch of Antioch, who was installed in Antioch during the cru- sades. Berthold went to the Holy Lands as a crusader and was in Antioch during its siege by the Saracens. It was at this time that he had a vi- sion of Christ denouncing the evil ways of the soldiers. Berthold tried to reform them. Some accounts hold that in 1185 he went to Mount Carmel and built a small chapel there in the second half of the twelfth century. He gathered a com- munity of Frankish hermits about him, living in imita- tion of the prophet Elijah. The community has some- times been thought to have given rise to the Order of Carmelites, but this is not supported by any clear evi- dence as historical records about the founding of the Order are scant. Berthold lived out his days on Mount Carmel, heading the community he had founded for 45 years until his death about 1195. After Berthold's death, the her- mits were led by another Frenchman, Saint Brochard. Some historians believe that Saint Berthold's example and way of life stamped the beginnings of the Carmelite Order, leading to the draw- ing up of the Order's rule by St. Albert, Latin patriarch of Jerusalem, about 1210. That rule was approved by Pope Honorius III in 1226 and it is this primitive rule that is considered the foun- dation of the Order of Mount Carmel Saint Berthold's feast day is on March 29% MICHAEL 500 Canterbury Street The Respecqid W'2 y Boston, MA 02131 617.524.1036 Serving tire Italian Community www.stmichaelcemetery.com for Over 1 O0 Years! -- FOR YOU WHO APPRECIATE THE FINEST -- THE MUSIC FOR ALL OCCASIONS 781-648-5678 INo END I Quality Printing for all your Commercial and Personal Needs Stationery * B iness Cards * Menus * Flyers Announcemen - Business Forms and Documents m COMPETITIVE PRICES -- TransportatiOn Improvements (Continued from Page 2) crash corridors with the help of researchers from BPHC and the Tufts Medical Cen- ter Division of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery. BTD and PWD will pilot test rapid response improve- ments at pedestrian crash hot spots and along high crash corridors, as well as "residen- tial slow zones" BPHC will assist with education and outreach to educate residents on safe road behavior. COMMONWEALTH AVENUE MULTI-MODAL REDESIGN At a public meeting held at Boston University, the City of Boston last night unveiled the new Commonwealth Av- enue Phase 2A Redesign Plan, which will transform the portion of this busy thor- oughfare that extends be- tween the BU Bridge to Packard's Corner. The built roadway will be innovative and provide bicyclists with physically protected bike lanes on both the inbound and outbound sides of the avenue. It will also offer the MBTA and its patrons with fully ADA compliant crossings at all in- tersections along the project route and will create a frame- work for the construction of wider platforms that will be safer and more efficient for trolley riders. The design af- fords motor vehicle drivers and pedestrians with numer- ous enhanced amenities. The Complete Streets de- sign incorporates a "Protected Intersection" approach to make Commonwealth Av- enue one of the most progres- sive multi-modal corridors in the country, and the first time that this design compo- nent will be used on Boston's public streets. This utilizes a sizeable separation between bikes and cars at intersec- tions to reduce "right hooks," LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI15P1173EA Estate of HARRY MASERIAN Date of Death November 29, 2014 CITATION ON PETITION FOR FORMAL ADJUDICATION To all interested persons: A Petition has been filed by George Javian of Glen Head, NY requesting that'the Court enter a formal Decree and Order of testacy and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

WITNESS, HON. EDWARD F. DONNELLY, JR., Rrst Justice of this Court. Date: March 16, 2015 Tara E. DeCfistofare, Register of Probate Run date: 3/27/15 a common cause of bicycle/ motor vehicle crashes where motor vehicle drivers turning right crash with cyclists con- tinuing straight. This is a cutting edge safety feature built into the design along with bike boxes and a comer deflection island to maximize safety while accommodating turns and providing better vis- ibility for both motor vehicle drivers, cyclists, and pedestri- ans. A collaborative process be- tween Boston's bicycle advo- cates, pedestrian groups, the Boston University commu- nity, as well as others with an interest in Commonwealth Avenue, helped formulate the design with the City. Commonwealth Avenue in the project area will also re- ceive new street lighting, landscaping, repaying and new street furniture. Con- struction financing for this $17 million project is being funded 800/0 by the federal gov- ernment and 20% by the state. The city expects to have another public meeting in the fall of 2015 before bidding begins on the project contract. Construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2016 with a completion date of late fall of 2017. The design pro- cess for this project began in 2009. Adding protected bike lanes has shown positive economic impacts on surrounding busi- nesses in cities across the count17Y, including New York City, San Francisco, and Port- land. A redesign of NYC's Union Square to include a protected bike lanes resulted in nearly 50% fewer commer- cial vacancies, and the con- struction of a protected bike lane on 9th Avenue saw a nearly 50% increase in retail sales. Studies have shown that adding a protected bike lane increases cycling traffic on the roadway, boosting re- tail performance, with nearly 70% of merchants on San Francisco's Valencia Street seeing a positive impact on business. Studies have shown that customers who arrive at retail stores by bike spend the same amount per month as comparable people who arrive by car, making smaller purchases but re- turning more frequently. INTELLIGENT PARKING METERS The Boston Transportation Department will be making parking at the curb smarter and easier for people who park at the 8,000 metered spaces across the City. With the ad- dition of new intelligent multi space and single space park- ing meters, drivers can pay through mobile phone, a credit card, or pocket change. This next generation of meters will also provide real- time data to the City to help BTD better manage the space at the curb. The information provided by an upgraded park- ing system and an analysis of current on-street parking regulations will allow the City to make decisions based on data, not just intuition. Credit card and mobile payment en- abled meters have shown in- creased revenue with drivers more likely to pay for the maximum length of stay. Multi-space meters will be deployed in new locations in the Back Bay and in the In- novation District to improve City operations. A typical multi-space meter allows for more vehicles to fit on a blockface than a block demar- cated with single space meters. In addition to the ap- proximately 145 new multi- space meters that will re- place some single space meters, current multi-space meters throughout the Back Bay and parts of Downtown will be upgraded, reducing annual maintenance costs for the aging equipment. The remaining single space parking meters wilt be re- placed with smart single space parking meters that can also be paid for with a mobile phone, credit card, or pocket change. A current pi- lot of credit card enabled single space meters in the Back Bay and around the Pub- lic Garden has shown positive results since deployment. This next generation of meters will provide the poten: tial for collecting occupancy and turnover rate of vehicles, critical data that gives the City insight on how to better manage the curb space around Boston. STREET SWEEPING PILOT Mayor Walsh will file a City Council ordinance to pilot a new street sweeping initia- tive in one of Boston's neigh- borhoods. The ordinance, which is being drafted now, will propose eliminating tow- ing for street sweeping, and increase the Fme for not mov- ing a vehicle from $40 to $90. The City plans to use the pi- lot to determine whether this initiative should be extended to other neighborhoods.
