The Buttonwood Park Zoo is now home to not one, but two, endangered red pandas.

In its monumental 125th year of operation, the Buttonwood Park Zoo opened its very first red panda habitat by welcoming a young red panda named Jacob. Jacob arrived in June of 2018 from Cleveland Metroparks Zoo and has easily been the SouthCoast’s cutest resident ever since.

Jacob wasn’t able to hold that title alone for long! In May of 2019, Marie, the Zoo’s newest red panda, arrived and began her mandatory 30 day quarantine period. Marie was born in the Greenville Zoo in South Carolina on June 12, 2018. Marie and Jacob enjoyed a joint “birthday party” to celebrate their 1st and 2nd birthday respectively with frozen biscuit cakes and brand new enrichment items. While both red pandas are sweet and inquisitive, Marie is more agile, adventurous and is the first one to try new things.

Marie was brought to New Bedford based on a recommendation as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP), which the Buttonwood Park Zoo is actively participating in. The goal of the SSP is to cooperatively manage animal populations to ensure the sustainability of a healthy and genetically diverse population while enhancing the conservation of this species in the wild.

Red pandas reach sexual maturity around 1 ½ years of age and in the northern hemisphere, they breed in January–February and give birth in June–July.

“As the Zoo celebrates its 125th anniversary, we are excited to introduce red pandas to our community for the first time,” said Buttonwood Park Zoo Executive Director, Keith Lovett. “While at the Zoo, guests will be able to witness these beautiful, playful animals and learn what the Zoo is doing to help protect this endangered species.”

Red pandas, which are native to Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar and Nepal, are listed as Endangered. They are faced with threats from habitat loss, illegal hunting, trapping and poaching. There are fewer than 10,000 red pandas living in the wild today with less than 220 in AZA accredited institutions, one of which is the Buttonwood Park Zoo.

Red pandas live in high-altitude temperate forests with bamboo understories. Primarily bamboo eaters, red pandas need to eat 20-30% of their body weight each day due to the high amount of indigestible fiber present in bamboo. Thanks to the success of the Zoo’s new Community Bamboo Program, the animals enjoy various species of bamboo harvested from private landowners throughout the community.

The Zoo offers “Keeper Chats”, an opportunity to learn more about two of the Zoo’s cutest residents, daily at 2:00 pm at the Red Panda Habitat. The Zoo is located at 425 Hawthorn Street in New Bedford and is open from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm daily.

Arizona Man Sentenced for Threatening Harvard Black Commencement Attendees in 2017

An Arizona man was sentenced yesterday in connection with posting threats to bomb Harvard and shoot attendees at the Black Commencement event held in May 2017.

Nicholas Zuckerman, 25, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani to 15 months in prison and three years of supervised release. In February 2019, Zuckerman pleaded guilty to two counts of transmitting in interstate and foreign commerce a threat to injure the person of another.

“The divisiveness of our public discourse does not excuse making any group of people feel unsafe,” said United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling. “We will investigate all threats that cross the line of free speech and infringe on the safety and security of members of our community, especially when those threats are based on race or other immutable characteristics.”

“It’s sadly ironic that Nicholas Zuckerman would turn his chilling threats of mass destruction and vile words against graduates at Harvard University, an institution that has molded some of our greatest orators. Let today’s sentence serve as a lesson to all that no hate monger hiding behind a social-media pseudonym can stop others from celebrating the diversity of some of our area’s best and brightest minds,” said Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Boston Division.

On or about May 13, 2017, Zuckerman commented on a post published to Harvard University’s Instagram account, saying: “If the blacks only ceremony happens, then I encourage violence and death at it. I’m thinking two automatics with extendo clips. Just so no n***** gets away.” It is further alleged that on that same date, Zuckerman posted a comment to another Harvard Instagram post, saying: “#bombharvard and end their pro-black agenda.” Several minutes later, Zuckerman commented “#bombharvard” on other users’ posts approximately 11 times over a span of four minutes.

A concerned citizen who saw the posts reported them to the Harvard University Police, who ultimately referred the case to federal authorities.

U.S. Attorney Lelling, FBI SAC Bonavolonta, and Harvard University Chief of Police Francis D. Riley made the announcement today. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Anne Paruti and Scott Garland of Lelling’s Civil Rights Enforcement Team prosecuted the case.

Faces Of New Bedford #214: Simone Cardoso

Meet Simone Cardoso, 24-year-old Singer, Songwriter, and Vocal Instructor. Simone has been singing for as long as she can remember. Her parents noticed her natural ability at such a young age and enrolled her in private singing lessons at Christine’s Studio of Performing Arts.

She was the studio’s very first vocal student and during her time there she grew tremendously. During her 6th grade year, she was cast as Annie in the New Bedford High School performance which was a huge accomplishment for her. Simone continued to pursue theater until her freshman year of high school, when she joined the girl group, Varsity Girls.

Simone performed, recorded and grew as an artist during her high school career, as the Varsity Girls became extremely popular. During her senior year, she began focusing on college, as the group started to slow down and eventually disbanded. Simone went to Salve Regina where she received her Bachelors in Music Education.

Her time at Salve really opened one of the most important doors for Simone, her passion for songwriting. Until this point, she had only performed songs written by others and now she was crafting her own ideas and emotions into her music. This has fueled her drive to push her solo career and work with other artists, helping them craft their own sounds. Simone is currently set to release her EP by the Fall.

Hospitality & Tourism coming to New Bedford High School

New Bedford High School officially added Hospitality and Tourism to its Career Vocational Technical Education program, continuing its expansion of vocational education in the district. The program is connected to the National Academy Foundation (NAF), and the Academy of Hospitality and Tourism is the 5th NAF program at the high school. The announcement was made at the organization’s national conference in Detroit earlier this month.

“We are excited to offer Hospitality and Tourism as our newest NAF academy,” said Bernadette Coelho, Headmaster of New Bedford High School. “We consider NBHS to be a flagship high school for NAF, and we value our strong partnership with them as they continue to support enriching career experiences for our students.”

The high school implemented a pilot hospitality program in the spring semester, in where students enrolled in an event planning class. Notably, the students in the class facilitated major events, including the Mayor’s State of the City address and the groundbreaking ceremony for the school’s finance lab.

“Our hospitality students have already distinguished themselves through implementing two successful events and have set the standard for excellence for future initiatives”, said Chris Cummings, manager of CVTE programs. “We are committed to providing rigorous career technical skill training through the facilitation of events connected to the hospitality industry.”

In addition to offering multiple classes and planning events, the program will strive to place students in paid internship experiences at area hospitality businesses.

As is a component of all CVTE programs, the Hospitality and Tourism program will include an active advisory committee comprised of industry representatives, post-secondary faculty, representatives from the MassHire workforce board, and school staff members. This committee will drive initiatives related to internship placement, employability skill training, and career pathway development.

“We are most fortunate to have a committed advisory committee to support the growth of our new program,” said Cummings. I view them as partners in assisting us in leveraging emerging opportunities in the industry,” he added.

The high school will host an official kickoff event for the school community in October.

New Bedford High School’s Hospitality program is part of the school’s offerings of Career Vocational Technical Education programming. In addition to Hospitality, the school offers career pathway programs in Business, Finance, Instructional Technology, Health Sciences, Engineering, Early Childhood Education, and Criminal Justice. For more information about Career and Technical Education at New Bedford High School, please contact Christopher Cummings, Manager of CVTE at 508 997 4511, ext. 20799.

St. Luke’s Hospital starts construction on a new, $14 million Intensive Care Unit

Mayor Jon Mitchell joined Southcoast Health President & CEO Keith Hovan on a tour of the future site of a new, $14 million intensive care unit under construction at St. Luke’s Hospital. The leaders are shown here looking over design plans.

Southcoast Health is investing $14 million in a new intensive care unit (ICU) at St. Luke’s Hospital that will more than double the size of the current ICU. This state-of-the-art unit also aligns with Southcoast’s pursuit of establishing a Level II trauma center at St. Luke’s Hospital in 2020.

“Our investment in advanced intensive care will provide our patients with greater access to clinical excellence, close to home,” said Keith Hovan, president and CEO of Southcoast Health. “The residents of southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island deserve the very best healthcare. We are excited to be investing in this new Intensive Care Unit as part of our ongoing commitment to delivering exceptional care and service to our patients and communities.”

“I commend Southcoast Health for continuing to invest in this community and delivering the highest quality care to the people of New Bedford and beyond,” said New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell, who toured the site of the new unit Wednesday. “Needing the services of critical care can be an emotional and trying experience for patients and families. This new unit will have the space, technology and skilled care team that will make all the difference during someone’s time of need.”

The new unit is being constructed on the 4th floor of St. Luke’s. It will be 16,000 square feet, as compared to the current 7,300-square-foot unit, and will be equipped with the latest technology. The 16 spacious, 440-square-foot rooms will accommodate medical equipment and enable family and staff to be comfortably at the patient’s bedside. A conference room will be dedicated for physician meetings with families and a quiet and comfortable lounge area, complete with refreshments, TV and showers, will be available to families staying long hours.

Maria Tassoni, RN, manager of the intensive care unit, commended staff for their meaningful contributions, suggestions and ideas for the unit’s design and features. “I am excited about the opportunity for our nurses, physicians and staff to work within a new state-of-the-art unit that is designed to provide an optimal experience for patients, families and providers,” said Tassoni, who has been working for Southcoast for 31 years. “When a great care team has a great facility, the patients and community benefit.”

The new unit will also play an integral role in the hospital’s efforts to achieve designation as a Level II trauma center, meaning that St. Luke’s Hospital would be able to treat more serious injuries for people in the community.

This is the latest in a series of significant investments made in St. Luke’s over the past five years. In 2014, the hospital cut the ribbon on the Stoico/FIRSTFED Maternity Center, following an almost $14 million renovation to support a family-centered model of care that included 16 new rooms and a state-of-the-art Level II nursery. A $4 million Rapid Assessment Zone was opened in 2017 to reduce the time for patients to be seen in our Emergency Department, providing patients with more timely care.

Southcoast Health employs 2,453 people at its New Bedford locations, and employs 1,581 city residents who work at Southcoast.

“As the region’s only not-for-profit health system, we know the importance of continually investing in our system to ensure all the residents of this region have access to the highest possible quality of care,” said Hovan. “And as the region’s largest employer, we want to provide our staff with the best facilities and equipment to treat and serve our patients, their families, and the larger community.”

Massachusetts Troopers arrest four for trafficking narcotics

Yesterday, shortly after midnight, Trooper Blakeley Pottinger and his field training officer Trooper Michael Leslie, assigned to State Police-Shelburne Falls, were on patrol in Bernardston. While traveling on Route 91 northbound they observed a gray Mitsubishi Outlander operating erratically over the lane markings. They subsequently caught up to the SUV and initiated a motor vehicle stop.

Upon stopping, both troopers approached the vehicle and identified four occupants inside. Trooper Pottinger spoke to the operator, identified as KEVIN ZWEERES, 42, of Bridport, Vt., and told him the reason for the stop then asked to produce his license and registration. ZWEERES informed Trooper Pottinger he did not possess a valid license to operate a motor vehicle. He was subsequently removed from the driver’s seat then placed in handcuffs and escorted to the rear of the vehicle. Trooper Leslie was on the passenger side of the vehicle speaking to the front seat passenger, identified as DOMINIC SANTIAGO, 26, of East Hartford, Conn. While speaking to SANTIAGO Trooper Leslie ordered him to stop reaching in his pockets. After two warnings SANTIAGO was removed from the vehicle in order to conduct a pat-frisk for weapons. During the pat-frisk of SANTIAGO struck Trooper Leslie in the face with his elbow then began running from the scene into a wooded area.

Within several minutes Trooper Leslie was able to catch and subdue SANTIAGO. He was restrained and escorted back to Trooper Leslie’s cruiser. While escorting him, Trooper Leslie recovered a large bag SANTIAGO attempted to dispose of while fleeing in the woods. This bag contained a substance believed to be crack cocaine. After escorting SANTIAGO back to the cruiser a thorough search of his person was conducted. Troopers located additional crack cocaine along with a 400 wax bags containing a substance believed to be heroin.

Officer Cody Guilbault, of the Greenfield Police department, was in the area and overheard Trooper Leslie shouting in the distance. He took it upon himself to deploy to the scene fearing our Troopers were in trouble. Sergeant Melinda Herzig, of the Charlemont Police Department, also responded to the scene in order to assist with the rear seat passengers. These passengers, identified as ALLISON BEAN, 34, of Bridport, Vt. and AMANDA KRAUSE, 38, of Essex Junction, Vt., were removed from the vehicle for questioning. Both females were found to have additional narcotics or paraphernalia in their possession and were also placed under arrest. Troopers seized a total amount of 68 grams of crack cocaine, 24 grams of fentanyl, 440 wax bags of heroin, and numerous articles of paraphernalia.

All four occupants were transported to the Shelburne Falls barracks for booking. Bail commissioners placed a bail amount of $25,000 on SANTIAGO, $10,000 on ZWEERES and KRAUSE, and $1,000 on BEAN. After the completion of booking all four arrestees were transported to the Franklin County House of Correction where they were held until their arraignment yesterday morning at Greenfield District Court on the following charges.
