Is reign of Queen Mary coming to an end?


Top lawyer

You may not know Shanna Cleveland, but you know her work.

She’s the senior attorney in the Boston office of the Conservation Law Foundation who fought so hard over the years to reduce pollution at Salem Harbor Station power plant. It was her work, in no small part, that led to the agreement to shut down the coal-burning plant next May.

Cleveland — no relation to the city — was honored last week with the prestigious 2013 Margaret H. Marshall Award by the American Constitution Society. And she was handed the award by none other than Margaret Marshall, the former chief justice of the state’s Supreme Judicial Court.

Auction of the Year

It’s not often we tell you to sell the furniture, Uncle Ned’s banjo and, if necessary, your husband — anything you can — to go down to The House of the Seven Gables on Sunday from 5 to 8 p.m. for Taste of the Gables.

You’ll want to bid on some of these auction items.

They are auctioning off a magnificent watercolor by Salem’s own Racket Shreve; “Winslow,” Beverly Seamans’ classic harbor seal sculpture; a quilt of fabrics created from archival wallpaper from The Gables by Maureen Clarke of Market Place Quilts; and a VIP experience at Churchill Downs, with a race named in your honor.

The event features 26 local chefs, wines and beers and it’s all for a great cause — The Gables.

Tickets are available at
