BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 26, 2012 Page 15 LEGAL NOTICE MASSACHUSETTS PORT AUTHORITY REQUEST FOR QUALIFICATIONS The MASSACHUSETTS PORT AUTHORITY (Authority) is soliciting consulting services for MPA CONTRACT NO. W212-D1 CAT III AND ASSOCIATED TAXlWAY ALTERNATIVES ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING, PERMITTING AND ENGINEERING SERVICES, WORCESTER REGIONAL AIRPORT (ORH), WORCESTER, MASSACHUSETTS. The Authority is seeking qualified multidisciplinary consulting firms/teams, with proven experience to provide professional services including environmental permitting and aviation planning and related design services for the upgrade of Runway 11 from Category I to Category III Instrument Landing Systems (ILS), including all required infrastructure and NAVAIDS. The Consultant must be able to work closely with the Authority, the FAA, environmental regulatory agencies and other interested parties in order to provide such services in a timely and effective manner. Runway 11-29 is 7,000 feet long and 150 feet wide, At present, Runway 11-29 is equipped with FAA instrumentation referred to as Category I (CAT I) which allows arrivals during poor visibility down to 1,800 feet runway visual range (RVR). Massporf has determined that seeking to upgrade ORH's all- weather capability including needed supporting technical and taxiway infrastructure is a safety and operational priority for the airport. Additionally, access to the Runway 11 end currently requires back- taxiing approximately 3,000 feet on the runway itself. Likewise, this main runway must serve as a taxiway affer arrival on Runway 29. New supporting taxiway infrastructure for access to and from Runway 11 is essential for facilitating the installation and operation of a CAT III system. A critical component of this effort is extensive coordination with the FAA given the goal that the FAA will take- over and maintain the tLS/CAT III system once installed and accepted by the FAA. The consultant shall demonstrate experience in several disciplines, including but not limited to, federal and state environmental permitting, aviation planning, FAA regulations, civil, structural and electrical engineering, cost estimating, construction phasing, sustainable design, and community outreach. The scope of work shall include, but not be limited to data collection, aviation industry analysis, computer modeling and simulations, preliminary design, prepare and file all applicable environmental permit applications including a joint MEPNNEPA review, and conduct public outreach and meetings. Consultant will be required to prepare and assess alternatives to the proposed project including environmental impact assessments with careful consideration to avoidance, minimization and mitigation strategies. The contract will be work order based, and Consultant's fee for each work order shall be negotiad; however, the total fee for the contract shall not exceed $2,500,000.

A revised notice will be advertised shortly. O*" Getting a Little Baseball Fatigue This past baseball season felt like Purgatory here in Boston as the Red Sox seemed pathetic from begin- ning to end. I thought the ending to the 2011 season was bad but this whole sea- son was even worse. Bobby Valentine was not the man- ager most of us thought he would be. I couldn't even say he was better than Terry Francona. I expected more from Bobby but either he didn't have it or upstairs didn't want him to have it. Either way, he had to go. You just can't sit in tB dugout and slJior ,whiii report- ers following games. This team is still full of too many crybabies, has-beens and fakers. We will probably end up keeping David Ortiz even though I wish we didn't have to. We still need more pitch- ing. We still need another slugger on this team. We still need lots of help. Too bad we let Adrian Beltre go be- cause he was great in Texas this year, homers, RBIs and a great average. Alfredo Aceves has to go. Hopefully, a healthy Bailey can be a good closer, Dave Bard looks like he's toast. We need better relief. We need better starters. Thank God the Dice-K era has ended. We also need Jon Lester to be Jon Lester again.

Speaking of 1967, if that was the Impossible Dream team, 2012 was the Impossible Nightmare team. Oh, they didn't raise ticket prices for 2013. How could they? That would have been adding insult to injury. One more thing, the last idea they should have had was to bring back Jason Varitek in any team capac- ity. I can't believe anyone was actually considering him as the new manager. Didn't our former captain help sink the ship in 2011? Sometimes you just have to let go of the status quo and think out of the ballpark. Oh yeah, also when will the owners stop pretending our sellout record streak is still intact. This is nothing more than some new kind of math. Empty seats and sellouts do not go together. As Far as Post-Season Goes All my favorite teaIns are out of the picture, Oakland, Cincinnati and Washington. I'm not watching baseball anymore. I'm glad that the Indians have given Terry Francona another chance to manage again. Of course, the Indians are not as strong LEGAL NOTICE MICHAEL SORRENTINO (AGENT) 95 CRESCENT AVE., SUITE 107 REVERE, MA 02151 (61 7) 347-91 04 FAX (781) 286-8402 TO: DANA THATCHEN NEW SHELBY STREET AUTO BODY, 345 SHELBY STREET EAST BOSTON, MA 02128 IF YOU COULD PROVE OWNERSHIP OF THE FOLLOWING VEHICLE 2000 FORD CIVIC 4 DR SEDAN VIN #1HGEM1150YL123142 PLEASE CALL THE ABOVE NUMBER OR VEHICLE WILL BE SOLD AT PRIVATE SALE SUBMITTED BY MICHAEL SORRENTINO (AGENT) Run date: 10/26/2012 LEGAL NOTICE NOTICE OF PRIVATE SALE Notice is hereby given by TODISCO TOWING OF 94 CONDOR STREET, EAST BOSTON, MA pursuant to the provisions of Mass G.L. c 255,Section 39A that they will sell the following vehicles by private sale on Novem- ber 3, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. Vehicles are being sold to satisfy their garage keeper's lien for towing, stor- age and notices of sale: 2004 DODGE CARAVAN VIN#1 D4GP24R24B553261 2001 DODGE CARAVAN VIN#1 B4GP44331 B165131 1998 NISSAN MAXIMA VIN#1G1 NE52J616244365 1998 NISSAN MAXIMA VIN#JNICA21 D7WM920106 1999 NISSAN MAXIMA VIN#JN 1 CA21 A9XT101918 2001 ACURA TL VIN#19UYA42A51AOOO631 1996 FORD EXPLORER VIN#1 FMDU34X4TZA06331 1997 DODGE RAM PICK UP VIN#1 BYHC13Y5VJ505678 1997 CADILLAC DE-VILLE VIN#1G6KF5490VU231870 1994 CHEVY SUBURBAN VIN#1GNGK26FXRJ348345 2001 BUICK LE-SABRE VIN#1 G4HP54K214193832 2000 OLDSMOBILE ALERO VIN#1G3NL52TIYC372443 Rundates: 10/19,10/26, 11/2,2012 as they once were. Francona has been around for a good while and is a good baseball guy. He needs to learn from September 2011 though and not fall into being too nice a manager because all you get from that are tire marks on your back. I'll Be Back Next Week Next week I shall return a little more rested and less fatigued about the 2012 sea- son. This past summer I never got to play in my soft- ball league. Too many inju- ries. I am hoping to return to the West End Softball League next season when I will be celebrating my 65 th birthday using my five dol- lar first baseman's mitt I purchased at Raymond's back in 1965.1 Hope, after all, does spring' eternal. That and fewer injuries too. An Impossible Type Many Red Sox fans found that typo quite quickly in my last column, iOn this one, I feel like Bill Buckner in Game 6 back in 1986 when that grounder slipped through his legs into right field. I somehow, back in 1997 when this commentary was first writte.n, missed the typo and I repeated the typo again this year. I like to call them typos because it sounds better than saying I committed erroi-s. Some- how, I mixed up two Red Sox Nation legends: "The Mon- ster" Dick Radatz (1962-65) and ."Dr. Strangelove" Dick Stuart (1963-64). Stuart hit 75 homers in his two sea- sons here and also about 75 errors while Dick Radatz earned about 75 errors, which were not counted then, with his 4-21 record in his first three seasons with the Sox.
