Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, MAY 11,2012 Saint Paschal Baylon by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Often in life, one experi- ence leads to another and before you know it, you are wandering down pathways that are totally unexpected. The recent Eucharistic Con- gress, just concluded at Saint Leonard Parish, in- spired us to look more closely at the origin of these events and their Patron Saint, Paschal Baylon who was little known to us. Saint Paschal was born in the kingdom of Aragon on May 24, 1540. His parents, Martin Baylon and Elizabeth Jubera, were poor peasants. Paschal was a shepherd in his youth. He was "illiterate but had an intense desire to read. He always carried a book with him and would ask passersby to teach him the alphabet, thus in time, he learned to read. Paschal led the solitary life as a shepherd until he was 24. Through his readings, prayer and meditation he developed the desire to en- ter religious life. In 1564, he joined the Reformed Franciscans in the Kingdom of Valencia and insisted on becoming simply a lay brother. He purposely chose to live in poor monasteries, for he said, "I was born poor and am resolved to die in poverty and penance." Saint Paschal lived for twenty- eight years in extreme pov- erty and constant prayer, which even his work did not interrupt, for the rest of his life. He was a mystic and con- templative, and character- ized by intense devotion to Our Lord in the Holy Eucha- rist. Toward the end of his life, he frequently spent the night before the altar in prayer. He often experi- enced ecstasies but out of humility downplayed these experiences to his commu- nity. Saint Paschal died on May 17, 1592. He was beati- fied by Pope Paul V in 1618 and canonized by Pope Alexander VIII on October 16, 1690. Pope Leo XIII pro- claimed him Patron of Eu- charistic Congresses. Pas- chal Baylon's feast day is celebrated on May 17. North End Library Events DAILY LIFE IN POMPEII Wednesday May 16, 2012 at 6:30 pm Slide Presentation given by Leona Cottrell.

Saliba Attorney at Law Is an exotic dancer for a nightclub an independent contractor or an employee and must she share her tips with other employees of the nightclub? NELITA MONTEIRO v. PJD ENTERTAINMENT OF WORCESTER, INC. d/b/a CENTERFOLDS Opinion No.: 117904, Docket Number: 10-1930 SUPERIOR COURT OF MASSACHUSETTS, AT WORCESTER 29 Mass. L. Rep. 203 November 23, 2011 Decided November 23, 2011 Filed PJD Entertainment of Worcester, Inc. owns and op- erates the club Center-folds in Worcester, MA, which serves food and alcohol and televises sporting events. Centerfolds also provides a venue that features exotic dancers who perform in the nude or semi-nude. Monteiro performed at Centerfolds as an exotic dancer for a period of time from the end of 2009 to the beginning of 2010. Because Centerfolds classifies its exotic dancers as independent contractors, Monteiro was never paid a base hourly wage for her performances at the club. Instead, she worked solely for tips. Centerfolds concedes that it is a "nightclub with a li- quor license ... that sells al- cohol, serves food, [televises] sporting events and ... pro- vides a venue at which ... entertainers ... perform [in the nude]." Centerfolds also concedes that it does not pay the exotic dancers a base wage. Instead, the dancers are remunerated for their services via customer gratu- ities. Centerfolds portrays itself as a restaurant and bar that passively allows exotic dancers to entertain patrons. This court cannot accord the club such indif- ference. An establishment that serves alcohol and pro- vides a venue for exotic dances is in the business of providing adult entertain- ment. The exotic dancers perform their services, therefore, in the usual course of that business. This is true even if food and alcohol are served and even if the majority of rev- enue is derived therefrom. Therefore, Centerfolds has mis-classified its exotic dancers as independent contractors in violation of 148B. Monteiro is properly classified as an employee as a matter of law. The Court in deciding that an exotic dancer is an em- ployee and the club cannot require her to share her tips with other employees. The Court Said: As an employee, Monteiro is entitled to the appropriate minimum wage for each hour of services she can prove she performed at Centerfolds. Monteiro further argues that Centerfolds required her, as a service employee, to remit a percentage of her tips to the club and to various other employees of the club. An employer is prohibited from deducting or retaining any percentage or amount from the tips that a service employee earns. An employer is further pro- hibited from requiring a service employee to pool tips with other, non-service employees. CROSSWORD PUZZLE U.S. Geography ACROSS E 1. Felipe __, Formula One racer 6.
