When Steven L. Gervais Sr., 77, president of Gervais Ford in Ayer, passed away last week at his home in Lowell, the Nashoba area as well as his home city lost a dedicated citizen with a long history of civic involvement and strong ties to both communities. Among those who knew him best through his longtime involvement in the Ayer-Harvard-Shirley Rotary Club, the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce and as a former representative on the Devens Enterprise Commission, Gervais was remembered as a gentleman and friend whose contributions to the local area were quiet but numerous.

Seven years ago, a Superior Court judge reduced the conviction of Juan Pagan, one of the city's youngest convicted killers, to second-degree murder, ruling Pagan's then-16-year-old adolescent brain didn't have the reasoning, judgment or impulse control for the premeditation required to be found guilty of first-degree murder. Standing before state Supreme Judicial Court on Tuesday, Pagan's appeals attorney, John F. Palmer, argued Pagan's sentence should be reduced, yet again, to manslaughter because Pagan says he "blanked out" during the fatal stabbing and has no memory of it. Comment?
