"She'd upended her life to pursue a crazy dream and now it seems like that dream was over. Shame god back on her old path teaching high school in suburban milwaukee. She found some comfort in that life. It felt more normal and more secure. But shane can never be truly happy. Playing it safe. She wanted to do what she loved. She wanted to get back into sports writing. I don't know if it's sadistic or what it is. But all she wanted to do was be in this place. Where no monitor. So you know. I was like eight years old or whatever. She owes pretended that i was part of the decision. And she'd say patrick it cool with you. If we moved to iowa and i cover illinois iowa high school sports. And i would say of course you know with tears is yes mom we can you know. I thought it was really kinda dumb. I was like jesus. Christ you're gonna move to frigging the quad cities in iowa and cover the. What do you what. Shane took a job. As a reporter at the moline dispatch. Her mother moved with her to help. Take care of patrick as a single mom with the demanding job. Shane need all the support. She could get that. Everything was just really minor. League was freeze freezing cold. Sometimes there was only room for her on top of the press box. So she'd have to sit outside. I don't think there were many women in that area that expressed interest in sports. So she was kind of like flown in from the outside. The psych alien species eight never seen after two and a half years the quad cities mary. Shane and her family relocated again. It was that move to cover the boston. Celtics for the worcester telegram. That brought shane back to the big leagues. not long. After she got assigned to the pro basketball beat the celtics in the nineteen eighty-four nba title. What are some of your memories around her actually engaged in the practice of doing her work a lot of times i would tag along with her then i would sit outside the pressroom while she finished her story. And then i'd be allowed to go in and get like one sisa pizza. I understood very early on when she was working. That's what she was doing. And i was to respect that time in the nba in the mid nineteen eighty s mary. Shane was once again. A pioneer. there was only one other woman usually besides me. And that was mary jane and mary jane was their first. That's jackie macmullan back. Then she wrote about the celtics for the boston globe. I don't ever remember talking to her. About how tough. It is to be a woman in the business. I don't think any of us talked about that because you didn't have a choice. You are woman you are in the business do your job. And that's how. Mary approached it. And that's very quickly how i learned to approach it at first. The celtics barred shane from going inside their locker room. Just as the milwaukee brewers done in the nineteen seventies while her male colleagues had free rein. Shane had to ask the players to join her in a tiny closet. Loaded with duffle bags and basketball's but shane didn't let that unfairness deter her. She just kept coming to work and thanks to her. The celtics changed their locker room policy. Mary shane was finally getting treated as an equal. Jackie macmullan benefited from the access. The chain fought for. She also took lessons from how. Shane did her work. I mean what i learned from. Mary was professionalism. And doing your job without any hidden agenda and always showing up whether you wrote something good or bad or different and just treating people with the respect that you hope that they would treat you. With in. Nineteen eighty-five larry bird busted. His hand reportedly bar fight. That injury to the celtics biggest star probably tanked their title. Chances it was. The biggest story of the season and bird refused to talk about it until he opened up to mary. Shane bird told her that he didn't want to be the guy everyone expects to be perfect. He also talked about disappointing his mother and feeling isolated in boston. He let shane and her readers know who he really was. Covering the celtics. Was everything mary. Shane had hoped sports journalism would be. She was a trusted colleague. Not a gimmick her voice carried weight and she didn't need to worry about how it sounded. I think it was a field level or for her shirt said mary jane but when they're reading it they don't hear woman reading it to him and then allow people that would probably have objected to that to just say you know what she can write. We'd be usually pretty small spaces all deadline writing and sometimes some of the guys. Let's just say more blustery than others. And i do remember once mary turning around saying if you're not working please be quiet and leave. I was like you go mary. I was too young even attempt to save thick wet that shane was devoted to her job and her family and pretty much nothing else. She made a huge effort to take me to sporting events when she wasn't covering them and i felt honored that she would go to sporting events in her free time so that i might have a cool experience with her and the reality is she probably enjoyed it as much. If not more than. I did one thing mary. Shane did not excel at was taking care of herself. In order diet coke merit ultralight and then whatever was the fastest way to inhale food. That would keep her alive. I'll fix just push yourself push yourself and just never would wrestling. She should during her time at the worcester telegram. Shane started having problems with her heart. She'd faint sometimes. She lost a lot of weight. Laura you it again. And i remember. We went clothes shopping. Nothing would fit her so we had to go to the kids clothing area and then she was like she just wanted to go home on the morning of november third nineteen eighty-seven. Shane was getting ready to interview the tennis star. Chris effort when she didn't come downstairs. Her mother went to check on her. She found mary dead in the bathtub. The cause of death was a brain aneurysm mary. Shane was forty two years old. And everything that. I knew you know just said immediately banished because she was kinda lodestone in life and when that goes away the level of uncertainty for fourteen. Okay pre overwhelming. She was somebody who inspired me and showed how strong some could be with impossible expectations. And i feel like i could never measure up to her but i sure assured you try. It's been almost thirty four years since mary. Shane died and forty four years since her one season with the chicago. White sox it was an incredible opportunity for her to sink or swim. And maybe she didn't swim but i think what's important. Is that after that happened. She regrouped came back to her love of sports and found success elsewhere. The fact that she went after what she wanted is is amazing. After necessarily what. I wanted in my life so i think her accomplishments are more profound. But i mean she made me proud. She included me and things It's just hard right. You have this idyllic childlike view of your mother. Which is perfection and it just. It's been hard to reconcile that with everyone else in the world that i've ever met on july twentieth two thousand twenty one a team of five women. Broadcasters called the baltimore orioles game against the tampa bay rays the first all woman on aircrew in major league. history shot. Anderson comes outside and allow works of three one count. And you see what the pitch sequence i mentioned we're really just going to see fliers enforcing from him. And that's been the case with all these years since mary. Shane made her debut. Women announcers are still a rarity. Susan waldman who's in her seventeenth season calling yankees games remains the only woman who's in a major league broadcast booth full-time. I've said many times than. I think. I'm not accepted in this business. I am tolerated and now i've been there so long that they can't get rid of me they wouldn't blinken i if every woman disappeared and it's not. I don't even know if it's sexism. Maybe they're just more comfortable with a male voice mary. Shane sent her memoir to a publisher and an agent and eighteen eighty one. They both rejected it saying they didn't think it would sell her son. Patrick sent me a copy. Recently it's incomplete. It ends on page one. Thirteen in the middle of a sentence but chains voice still comes through very clearly. I keep returning to the same short passage about the solace baseball gave when her sister died. They booted balls. They threw wildly. They stumbled on the base paths. She wrote of the milwaukee brewers. But it didn't matter. I don't even remember who they played. I just remember the feeling of being at the ballpark. The hotdogs in the green grass. And the throw around the infield. After a strikeout. And i remember that i kept hoping for extra innings.

And Jerry Russell who is an a butter is very concerned about the increase in traffic very concerned about the odors that emanate from the plant very concerned about property his his value of his property and his neighbors property, and we had three phone calls from Charlton last hour. Linda who lives quite a distance away three point eight miles. She likes the idea of the facility coming into the community. But Belinda as well as Kristen. We're very supportive of Jerry Russell. So we're not limiting this to Charlton because this could happen in your hometown. And it might certainly we're going to be dealing with some of these issues, and what happens is you vote for something. And you say, well, you don't realize it sort of the the law of unintended consequences. Let's keep the conversation going here. We'll continue with this. I'd love to talk about this right up until ten o'clock after ten o'clock guest schedule from the first liberty institute going to talk about a continuing controversy. We've talked about it before there is a World War. One cross a memorial to fifty nine Americans who died in World War One. That's now over one hundred years ago, and that cross has stood for nearly one hundred years. It was designed by the parents the mothers, I guess of these a fallen soldiers. And now there is an effort to take the cross down off a public land. We'll get to all of that. But not until ten o'clock. And in the meantime, let's talk about Charlton Massachusetts because it's today is in Charleston could be in your talent tomorrow. Let's go to Ray in Charlton Hulo. Ray welcome. You first this hour on the ringcentral. Nicer call. Thanks for calling in. You can call me Ray. And also, well, you can call me, Dan. Okay. Okay. Did. I love in Charlton probably a little less than a half mile from the facility, and I'm also the retired zoning board of appeals champion for some thirty five years in a town of Charlton. You've got some experience. Franson I've been I've been on the background and since I'm retired. I don't wanna be putting my nose into town politics. Just some quick points that maybe you could discuss and other people could consider also what the zoning enforcement officer did do was correct because he reviewed it. And what was the proposal was met the Cheltenham zoning bylaw? The possible the president possible, which is an art Archerd is in an agricultural district. Would she isn't allowed us for agricultural homes? Residential. An apple or is agricultural. There's no doubt about that. But the question is whether or not a facility that's going to produce cannabis is now I'm out Canopus is state and federally regulated town of Charlton zoning bylaw doesn't oughta have specifically cannabis or marijuana as a non allowed us and the bylaw so it's an agricultural greenhouse. So my my question would be to the gentleman that doesn't like it, which is not in my backyard is not a reason for fighting a stopping it. If he went to the superior court if it was an exactly the same facility proposed to the planning board and they wanted to grow roses. Okay. And they had to construct in tear down half the hill. Whatever they had to do. What would be the problem there? Maybe some people don't like to smell the roses. You know what I'm saying? Post to cannabis. Well, I don't know as much about the menial facturing of cannabis is probably others in the audience. Do. However, I agree y'all ever. However, an apple orchard you plant the trees, the the the the apples grow. They follow the ground, you pick them, and that sounds to me like a purely agricultural activity. I don't unless now if all of a sudden you're gonna start to bottle and make applesauce, and which which was done at that Priscilla. That's fine. Okay. That's. He also had if I'm not mistaken, I've been here some forty almost fifty years. I believe they had greenhouses there that they planted their tomato plants in. Come back to my argument. Okay. My my argument is that. And again, I'm not an expert in this. But an apple orchard apple trees, the whatever the the apples grow. They fall to the ground. You pick them up you put him, and and you sell them at the stand or you move them out. I don't think there's there's any that's purely agricultural now. If if if all of a sudden, they said, okay, we're going to take these apples, and we're gonna do applesauce. We're going to make apple muffins. We're gonna make up did. Well, maybe they did. And maybe maybe what they did was improper. I don't know what the what the by laws are all I'm just saying is it takes on a different a different character. And in terms of what is involved in the production of cannabis and and they're talking about producing. I guess this was again what Jerry Russell told me the edibles brownies or cookies or whatever they do. I don't know how much commercial. Activity goes on with that. I don't know what sort of a quick is used. It would seem to me that you would then get into a fact based argument that would end up in the in the courts, I can understand why people would be concerned if that was now let me ask you this Ray if if this facility. Was was on a pro on property. You said you live a half a mile away. If this budding your property in Charlton would that change your attitude? No not. Okay. Good. Okay. And I'm assuming that you vote in favor of marijuana in in two thousand sixteen. Yes. I did. Okay. So don't smoke. It. Might have looked at it. You might have looked at it from the point of view. And there could be people look at it and say, look this is going to enhance the town revenue stream, and it's going to play pretty taxes. Is that your your theory is that you're you're exactly I am retired. And if someone's gonna put one to three million dollars into the coffers of the town to reduce our real estate taxes, which are extremely high. I'm all for it. Okay. Let me ask you this. What about it? They were going to turn it into an automobile manufacturing plant, and maybe not. That's easy. It's not allowed. No. But wait is that my question? No. It's not. Zone know that I'm asking you this. Okay. If they were gonna put in an automobile manufacturing plant, they would probably generate a lot more revenue for the town. Now, if they came before the town and said, we want to change zoning in that area with the economic interest allow you to vote for a vote of a zoning change if if it was in your thirty. I'm glad you mentioned that because when I was on the board of appeals. Submitted a proposal to the town of Charlton to change the zoning along route twenty two. I T industrial. Four specifically manufacturing like an automobile. And. Town people said, no we want to keep it agricultural. Sure. They wanna keep looking. This is. Classic. Like charlton. You have a certain people who are going to say, look, I moved into Charlton because of its rural character, and I wanted to maintain the town in this way. Then you have people say, hey, but you know, what we got a couple of Dunkin donuts on the corner and maybe an auto supply shop over here. It's going to take some of the pressure off us on real estate taxes. I understand and Ray you've been really a great caller because you've identified I think the competing interests here. Very very well. Okay. And one hundred point about the smell. Yeah. Okay. Charlton going back. Forty fifty sixty years was the dairy capital for war. What's the gut hall? It's milk. In fact, there was a railroad that went from Worcester to Charlton with the dairy farmers would put the milk on a train to trolley. Okay. Sure. The smell of cannabis which is gonna be salted opposed to you know. Thousand cows could fit on that property, let my question. Right. Will be this. I would bet you the going back in the day back to the sixteen hundreds you probably had cows in Charlton given milk. Okay. Going back forty fifty years. I. Avenue dairy farms and child, I would suggest to you Ray is that the dairy farms probably were a part of Charleston, four decades if not centuries thankfully centuries. For anyone who would have moved into Charleston, Charlton would have known guess what there's tiles in this dairy cows here. This is this is a change. That's that. That argument doesn't work Ray. I gotta run. Thank you so much for your call. Have a great night. Six one seven two five four thirty triple eight nine two nine ten thirty. Again, this could affect your community, leptin know, what side of the argument. Do you come down on Ray clearly comes down on the side of increased revenue for the town. It's going to take a little bit of pressure off real estate taxes. It's going to save everybody a little bit of money throughout the town. Ray was very honest. Join the conversation six one seven two five four ten thirty triple eight nine thousand nine hundred thirty it is nine nineteen coming up here on WBZ. Nightside.
