Everett panel mulls future of teacher in burial ground case By Judy Rakowsky GLOBE STAFF The Everett High School teacher who testified before a grand jury investigating desecration of a Jewish cemetery cannot return to his job without disrupting the learning process, school officials said last night. On the other hand, the School Committee does not have sufficient reason to fire Richard R. Rivard, who was not charged in connection with the pro-Nazi vandalism, they said. No one has been able to establish that Rivard, who is on paid leave, belongs to any political group, let alone a neo-Nazi group, said James Tobin, counsel to the School Committee. But school officials acknowledge that Rivard's return to Everett High would be disruptive and that they are trying to negotiate some type of severance package with him. "The general consensus of the committee and the community, I feel, is that he not return to Everett High," said Frederick Fores-tiere, Everett superintendent. "The question is whether he can be effective at Everett High," Forestiere said. "Our role is to provide a protected environment for learning, not one of confusion and disruption." Tobin said, however, that Rivard has not been convicted or indicted for any wrongdoing and is entitled to retain his position. The committee met in executive session last night to discuss the fjxategy Tobin should pursue Robert E. Bradley, 50 An attorney from Braintree A funeral Mass will be said this morning for Robert E. Bradley of Braintree, an attorney, who died at home Saturday after a five-year battle with melanoma. He was 50. Mr. Bradley was a litigator with the Dorchester firm of Ganick, O'Brien and Sarin, where he had worked for five years. Colleagues described him as a personable fellow with a dry sense of humor, who was as down to earth in the office as he was on the golf course. Born in Dorchester, he graduated from Boston Latin High School. He was president of his senior class and was an All-Scholastic hockey player. Mr. Bradley attended Harvard University on a hockey scholarship and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He received his law degree from Suffolk University in 1973. He was a member of the Massachusetts and Norfolk County bar associations. Mr. Bradley leaves his wife, Ellen (Flanagan); a daughter, Kristen of Scituate; two sons, Ryan of South Boston and Brendan of Scituate; and a brother, Richard T. of Braintree. The Mass will be said at 10 a.m. in St. Brendan's Church in Dorchester. Burial will be in Blue Hills Cemetery, Braintree. H.WmardHorne,72 Was Salem bank president H. Willard Home, retired president of the Heritage Co-Operative Bank in Salem, died Saturday in Beverly Hospital. He was 72 and a longtime resident of Hamilton. Mr. Home was a native of Nova Scotia and a US Army veteran of World War II. He worked for the Heritage Co-Operative Bank for 42 years, ad vancing to the position of president. He was a member of the board of directors at the time of his death. He was a former member and treasurer of the Salem Rotary Club and a member and former treasurer of the First United Methodist Church in Hamilton. Mr. Home leaves his wife, Alice M. (Hilton); three daughters, Joyce of Beverly, Earlita of Maryland and Paula of East Boston; and a grandson. A funeral service will be held today in the First United Methodist Church, Hamilton, at 10 a.m. Burial will be in Hamilton Cemetery. in negotiating with Rivard, 56, and his lawyer. Rivard could be dismissed only on the basis of ineffectiveness, incompetence, conduct unbecoming a teacher or other good cause, Tobin said. Neither Rivard nor his lawyer chose to attend last night's meeting. The committee asked Tobin at its last meeting, two weeks ago, to investigate the process and grounds needed for firing Rivard, a tenured teacher with 19 years experience. Tobin had told the committee that it should take no action while the Middlesex County Grand Jury had on its table the cemetery desecration case, in which three Everett 19-year-olds were indicted. The three, Brian Merchant, Paul Flaherty and Edward Cordwell Jr., were accused of turning over more than 100 tombstones and defacing monuments with swastikas. Now that the grand jury has decided not to indict Rivard, the school committee must decide whether to reinstate him. Tobin said the only teacher he knows of who was fired for membership in an organization was a Boston teacher who, in 1951, refused to answer questions on whether he was a communist when brought before the House UnAmerican Activities Committee. In other action, the School Committee voted to present the "World of Difference," a sensitivity-training program, to Everett for all teachers and administrators on Jfcme 23. New England News Briefs Mother guilty in drug, gun case A Lawrence woman whose 7-year-old daughter tried to flush drugs down the toilet during a police raid Feb. 7 received a two-year suspended sentence yesterday after pleading guilty to drug and firearms charges in Lawrence District Court Ana Mejia, 30, who was not home at the time of the raid, surrendered to police the next day. As a condition of her two-year probation, Mejia was ordered to take part in any drug treatment programs deemed necessary by the probation department.

School's founder faces arson case SALEM - Michael Boland, 45, founder of the defunct Commonwealth School of Law in Lowell, is scheduled to stand trial in Superior Court here today on charges of arson and conspiracy to commit arson in the Oct. 29, 1989 burning of the rival Massachusetts School of Law in Andover. Essex County District Attorney Kevin Burke alleged that Boland hired Edward T. Dillon, 42, of Chelmsford to set fire to the rival law school, which was founded by disgruntled faculty and students after Boland's school ran into accreditation difficulties. Dillon was convicted in 1991 of setting fire to the Andover law school and was sentenced to 3 to 10 years at Cedar Junction in Walpole. The fire, which started in the school's library, caused an estimated $350,000 damage. Boland's attorney, Robert Fin-neran of Salem, is expected to argue that Boland had nothing to do with the alleged arson or with Dillon. Boland founded his school in 1985. Its enrollment peaked in three years at 175 students. Protesters plan Chinatown rally Protesters are expected to show up today at New England Medical Center to fight the hospital's proposal to build an eight-story, 455-car garage on Oak Street in Chinatown. On Thursday, officials of the Boston Redevelopment Authority, which owns the lot, plan to discuss the hospital's proposal, which BRA Director Paul L. Barrett has said is likely to win BRA approval. The protesters, organized as the Chinatown Community Coalition to Protect Parcel C, oppose the garage even though the hospital is offering $1.8 million in neighborhood linkage funds and 55 parking spaces to area residents. New Bedford fire called suspicious Afire raged late last night through an old vacant mill complex in New Bedford the size of four city blocks, officials said. Firefighters from neighboring towns helped battle the blaze at Pierce Mill. New Bedford Chief Harry Openshaw said the fire was "definitely suspicious" in origin.A chief from another department said vagrants, started a fire in the mill two weeks ago. The first alarm came in at 10:42 p.m., firefighters said. The New Bedford department asked Dartmouth, Fairhaven and Acushnet to send equipment and firefight-ers.The blaze caused the roof to collapse in the center of the complex, officials said. Lynn man is held in hit-run case A Lynn man pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges that he was the driver in a hit-and-run accident that left a pedestrian in critical condition on life support in a Lynn hospital. Robert Bedard, 28, of Childs Street, is accused of driving a car that struck Helen Bardis, 42, of Lynn, Friday at 11:15 p.m. Bardis suffered a fractured skull and massive internal injuries, according to Assistant District Attorney Nancy Winn. Bardis has no brain activity and is on life support systems, Winn said at Bedard's arraignment in Lynn District Court on several charges, including a drunk-driving felony count,Bedard was held on $100,000 surety or $10,000 cash bail. N.H. clean waters group to disband LACONIA, N.H. - An environ-; mental group set up before the first Earth Day is disbanding, partly because many goals it set out to achieve have been accomplished. The Lakes Region Clean Waters Association, the first recipient of the annual federal Environmental Protection Agency's environment award in 1975, will join the New Hampshire Lakes Association. The group, active in many crusades over the past quarter-century, was begun in 1969 to ; combat massive algae blooms in I Lake Winnisquam due to poorly treated sewage from the Laconia j treatment plant, and proposed the1 original blueprints for the Winnipe-saukee River basin project that now collects and treats sewage from 10! towns and cities. (AP) j i Judge sets charge aside as warning ROCHESTER, N.H. - Richard ' McCue, acquitted in his second murder trial after serving five years in the state prison, walked free yesterday on an unrelated assault charge. The man who claimed McCue assaulted him after an incident in a Rochester restaurant in April did not appear at the Rochester District Court hearing. He sent a message through police that the incident was a misunderstanding and said the charge should be dropped. Rather than dismissing the charge, Judge Robert Carrigan set it aside without a finding and warned that it would be brought back if McCue gets into trouble during the coming year. Four months ago, McCue was found innocent of first-degree murder in the death of Alene Cour-chesne. He served about five years in prison after being convicted in his first trial. (AP) v 2 Brockton youths face gun charges BROCKTON - Police said two 16-year-old youths, one wielding a shotgun, were arrested yesterday outside a restaurant after a reported fight with another group of men, police said.
