Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 22, 2012 Sister Eileen Harvey Retires by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari It was 28 years ago, when Sister Eileen first arrived at Saint John School. Sister had become aware of the position of principal that had just opened; she applied for it, and to her delight, was chosen to lead the old neighborhood school. It was an achieve- ment Sister Eileen had earned after many years of hard work as a grade school teacher that prepared her to assume leadership of a school that needed the dy- namic leadership that Sister Eileen proved capable of de- livering during the years that followed. Eileen was born in Brighton, her parents, Frank and Violet Harvey had sepa- rately emigrated from County Armagh, Ireland, where they knew each other as friends with no plans of marrying. It took a boat ride on the Charles River to ig- nite the spark that brought them together; they married and settled in a modest apartment in Brighton. Frank went to work for the Hood Rubber Co., where he remained employed 'till his retirement. Violet, with her great love for children, be- came a Nanny, work she did lovingly for most of her life. In time, the young immi- grant couple raised their family, Eileen and her two brothers Frank and Gerati. It was while atterd- ing Saint Columbkill:'s Elementary School in Brighton, that Eileen fi:st felt the desire to enter reli- gious life. After several years of discernment, she entered the Novitiate as a Postulant of the Sisters of Saint Joseph in 1954 at the age of 17. Upon completing her Novitiate in 1957, Sis- ter Eileen spent two years teaching at Saint Agatha's school in Milton where she taught third grade. She then went to Our Lady's in Milton where for the next 12 years Sister taught first grade and then to Saint Catherine's in Somerville where she taught first grade for 13 years. Sister Eileen attended Regis College and in 1993 received her Master's Degree in Administration from Emmanuel College. Her skills as an administra- tor would serve her well in her years at Saint John where she guided the school from a simple neighbor- hood school whose students were drawn nearly exclu- sively from the North End to today's school where two thirds of the students come from other neighborhoods in the city, creating within the school greater ethnic diversity. Sister Efleen is fond of say- ing, "You are number one, if you are doing your best," coupled with her gentle but firm leadership and guided by the mission, "Peace Will be Our Way," Saint John's, which is now 116 years old, has become a safe urban haven with high academic standards placing an em- phasis on values as part of its curriculum.

Is it a crime to possess one ounce or less of marijuana with intent to distribute one ounce of marijuana? COMMONWEALTH vs. SHAWN M. KEEFNER SJC-11019 SUPREME JUDICIAL COURT OF MASSACHUSETTS 461 Mass 507; 961 N.E.2d 1083 November 7, 2011, Argued * February 13, 2012, Decided The Court said: Except as specifically pro- vided in [the act], neither the Commonwealth nor any of its political subdivisions or their respective agencies, authorities or instrumen- talities may impose any form of penalty, sanction or dis- qualification on an offender for possessing an ounce or less of marijuana ... Information concerning the offense of possession of one ounce or less of marijuana shall not be deemed 'crimi- nal offender record informa- tion' ... and shall not be recorded in the Criminal Offender Record Information system. How about the fact you have the one ounce with intent to give it or sell it to someone else? The Court said: Here, the crimes of simple possession of marijuana and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute are listed separately in the General Laws, have different elements, and are distinct. The act, insofar as it relates to the simple possession statute, only applies to a small amount (one ounce or less) of marijuana. In con- trast, the crime of posses- sion with intent to distribute applies to any amount of marijuana if the intent is to distribute it (as opposed to personal use). This case says if you pos- sess one ounce of marijuana it's not a crime. But if you possess one ounce of mari- juana with the intent to give or sell it to someone else it's a crime.
