The Supreme Judicial Court today better defined just what sort of property a religious organization can claim a tax deduction on - and wildlife sanctuaries and buildings entirely rented out to non-religious groups are not included - but cafeterias and gift shops can be. The ruling comes in an appeal by the Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette, which objected to the Attleboro board of assessors demanding $92,292.98 in taxes be paid in 2012 on 110 acres of land on which the Mass. Audubon Society has an easement, a former convent now rented to a safe house for battered women, a shrine welcome center and a shrine storage building The assessors ruled the shrine was only entitled to a partial abatement on the welcome center in part because it included a cafeteria and gift shop and because the shrine sometimes rented the hall out to local groups. The state's highest court ruled that state law on what religious organizations can seek to exempt for taxation specifically bars land or facilities used for purposes other than religious worship or instruction. Wildlife sanctuaries and buildings entirely rented to third parties for non-religious programs do not qualify, the court ruled - adding the shrine might be able to make a case for exemptions under clauses related to non-profit uses more generally. While renting out a building to a safe house for battered women may be a noble cause and stem from the shrine's religious beliefs, the state law on religious exemptions focuses on religious worship and instruction, and letting a third party rent a church building for a safe house does not fall under that, the court ruled, adding: Had the Shrine timely filed the documents required under [the clause related to non-religious non-profit efforts], it might have obtained an exemption for the safe house. The court used similar logic to side with assessors on the wildlife sanctuary, which the shrine said was a place for ecospirituality and religiously contemplative walks: We appreciate that a wildlife sanctuary may be for some a spiritual sanctuary, much as working in a safe house may be for some the realization of a spiritual mission. But the Legislature did not intend either a wildlife sanctuary or a safe house, when used and operated as they were here, to qualify as a house of religious worship. In contrast, the court ruled against Attleboro assessors on their decision to at...

The Boston Licensing Board tomorrow decides whether to allow the transformation of the North Star, 222 Friend St. into a calmer, quieter professional establishment aimed at the sort of people filling the new apartments sprouting like mushrooms around North Station, rather than rowdier Celtics and Bruins fans. Timothy Bartolomeu and his business partners want to buy the current bar and turn it into the Rogue Lounge, which his lawyer said would provide a more professional, calm lounge experience that would mirror the significant investments made in this part of the city of Boston. He added, however, that the new lounge would undergo only minor cosmetic changes before opening. The concept is a welcome change for the neighborhood, Maria Lanza, the mayor's liaison for the area, told the board.

The cafe, which would be open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, would serve a variety of dishes from the countries from which mosque members come. The board decides tomorrow whether to grant a food-serving license. The mayor's office and the offices of at-large City Councilors Ayanna Pressley and Annissa Essaibi-George supported the proposal.

DCR Commissioner Leo Roy tonight unveiled a proposal to set aside all of Stony Brook Reservation west of Enneking Parkway - 140 acres of the 475-acre forest - for a dog park that would feature about a three-acre area of fenced-in play space and several miles of trails through the woods where owners could let their dogs roam free. It's 140 acres in the city of Boston, that's pretty incredible, Roy enthused to a crowd of about 75, after first shocking residents by saying the reason DCR would abandon plans to rehab the old Thompson Center along West Smithfield Road into a park that could serve both dog owners and others was because of a law, passed in 1967, that seems to forbid the spending of any money on the Thompson Center except to support recreational uses for kids with disabilities. The center has been closed for close to two decades. Under the proposal created by a landscaping design firm hired by DCR, all the land between from Enneking Parkway on the east and West Boundary Road on the west and from Washington Street in the north to Dedham Parkway in the south would go to the dogs. A small parking lot and a grassy area across from Turtle Pond - now used by the MWRA to store equipment for its project - would be turned into a parking lot with some 30 parking spaces and would be the entrance for the fenced-in part. A smaller parking lot on Dedham Parkway would let dog owners and their pets get into the more wild trails from the south, although they could also access the trails from the Enneking Parkway lot. Roy said this would create the first dog park in Boston's southern half. Association members demanded to know why Roy was only now telling them about the 1967 law, when they'd been working with DCR for five years on a Thompson Center plan. We just became aware of [the law], Roy said. One resident asked how DCR had become aware of the law. We heard it from the legislative delegation, he said. Roy did not get more specific, but the only local legislator who has ever expressed any negative feelings about the Thompson Center proposal is state Rep. Angelo Scaccia (D-Hyde Park) - who has been fighting the plans to end the Thompson Center's current role as a feces-laden shooting gallery for the more mobile local drug addicts. Neither Scaccia nor any other elected official attended tonight's meeting at the Hyde Park municipal building, although he and...

The government's quietly announced ban on electronic carry-ons from certain foreign airports on certain airlines could have a harsh impact on three airlines that have ramped up their operations at Logan Airport in recent years, because the ban could cause business travelers, who pay more for the ability to work in flight, to seek other ways to the US. The ban covers flights on Emirates Airlines, which started flying to and from Logan in 2014 and Qatar Airways, which began flying to and from Logan in 2016. A third airline, Etihad Airways of Abu Dhabi, shares booking with JetBlue, which has turned Logan into one of its US hubs. Matthew George writes: Laptop ban is disastrous for Boston - huge growth from Mid East carriers driving expon. growth of BOS's JetBlue hub. The Washington Post, which notes the ban on carry-on laptops seems to have little actual security rationale - because the laptops can still be checked on a flight - wonders if the real reason is to punish airlines the government thinks are unfairly subsidized by their home governments, such as Emirates and Qatar.
