About 60 current ten-ants gathered Sunday evening to unitein their efforts to stop a mandatorywasher and dryer installation startedby the property’s new owner, EquityResidential, which bought the towerand adjoining buildings for $93 mil-lion in August 2012.The property was previously namedTownhouse Plaza and was owned byWestlake Realty Group.“We want to stop the washer/dryerproject where it is and see if Equityfeels they can still advertise the 55building as having in-unit washer dry-ers,” Miller told the Daily Journal.“We also want compensation for all of the lost quiet enjoyment and habitabil-ity.

Feds:Kennedys’seaturtle rescue was a violation
BARNSTABLE, Mass. — Two mem-bers of the Kennedy family whothought they were doing a good deedby freeing an entangled sea turtle actu-ally violated the law, according to theNational Oceanic and AtmosphericAdministration.John Bullard of NOAA’s Division of Fisheries said he spoke to brothersMax and Robert F. Kennedy Jr. abouttheir rescue of the leatherback turtleand explained to them that what theydid was dangerous and a violation of the Endangered Species Act, whichmakes it illegal to handle an endan-gered or protected species.The Kennedys freed the estimated500-pound turtle from a buoy linewrapped around its head and fins onJuly 6 after they spotted it while outsailing on Nantucket Sound.The brothers have been “coopera-tive and very helpful” as the agencygathers pictures, gear and other evi-dence involved in the rescue, Bullardtold Cape Cod Times.Turtle rescue is best left to profes-sionals because of the dangerinvolved, he said. Anyone who spots adistressed turtle should contact NOAA.An untrained person runs the risk of getting tangled in the line and pulledunder by a turtle, which can weigh upto 700 pounds and hold its breath a lotlonger than a human, he said.“You can get entangled, go under andit can turn into a tragedy,” he said.Only the Provincetown Center forCoastal Studies is certified to handleturtles.The brothers have expressed regret.“When we spotted a sea turtle introuble over the 4th of July weekend,our first impulse was to do what wecould to help free the animal,” RobertKennedy Jr. said in a statement onNOAA’s website. “But we realize thatthe action we took was pretty risky,these are large, powerful animals.”He urged people who spot a turtle indanger to call NOAA, then stand byuntil rescuers arrive to help themlocate the animal.There have been 22 reported turtleentanglements in Massachusetts,Rhode Island and New York waters thisyear, NOAAsaid, compared to eightduring the same period last year.
Elderly grocery storeowner refuses robber
MARSHFIELD, Wis. — Amaskedrobber apparently thought the 96-year-old owner of a neighborhood gro-cery store in Marshfield would be aneasy target for his crime. But, he wasso wrong.Margaretta Wolf has owned the storebearing her family name for 54 years.And she wasn’t about to turn over hercash to the armed intruder after heordered her to open the cash register.“I said: ‘I’m not opening up thatcash register and that’s it, I’m notopening it. I said you can have all theTootsie Rolls you want but I am notopening that cash register,’” saidWolf.The man in the silver mask and car-rying a knife continued to give Wolf orders during the robbery attemptMonday.“He said, `Walk in the back of thestore,’I said, `I’m not walking noplace, I’m standing right here,’” Wolf recounted.The elderly store owner stood herground when the man flashed a pock-etknife and placed it on the counter.“I said, ‘I’ll press a button and I’llhave somebody here in seconds,’” shesaid.Wolf said the would-be robberappeared frustrated, looked around,spotted a security camera in the corner,grabbed the knife and fled.Marshfield Police Lt. Darren Larsensaid he’s just glad Wolf is OK.“In this instance, certainly againwhile not recommended with whattook place, we’re just very, veryhappy Marge was not injured,” Larsentold WAOW-TV.Wolf said she has a few words for thesuspect when police catch up withhim.“What do I say to him? I say I thinkyou got some punishments coming,and it will be a little bit more thanscrubbing the floor,” she said.

Going forward, however, therewill be no limit to the number of students.University officials decided to expand itsprogram in response to the growing demandfrom entrepreneurs who are unable to attendthe exclusive boarding school.More and more students are taking coursesonline as the number of college studentsenrolled in at least one online courseincreased for the ninth straight year, accord-ing to the Babson Survey Research Group’sannual survey of morethan 2,500 colleges anduniversities — includingboth nonprofit and for-profit institutions.“Online education ishere, it’s real and itshould be an integral partof any educational insti-tution. We are changingthe lives of so manymore aspiring entrepre-neurs by addressing their global needs withour disruptive, groundbreaking curriculum,”Tim Draper, founder of Draper Universityand co-founder of Draper Fisher JurvetsonVenture Fund, wrote in a statement.Courses offered to online school studentsare identical to those offered to students of the boarding school program. The coursescover business basics and startup strategiesbut do so by using experiential hands-onmethods unique to Draper University.Classes will include both individual assign-ments and teamwork projects based oninterest, geography and background.The university has already had millions of dollars in venture capital investments hand-ed to its students after they completed a ses-sion.
