Page 10 POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 2, 201 5 Ray Barron's 11 O'CLOC:K NEW5 So here we are in the year 2015. Let's get started with news from Italy. An Italian man named Romeo has been jailed because his girl- friend made too much noise during sex. Neighbors said Romeo Artemio Lori's girl- friend made such loud moans and ear-shattering yelps that they felt "terror- ized" by their lengthy sex sessions. A judge agreed and sentenced Lori to six months in jail. Lori filed an appeal, claiming he is being pun- ished for "being too good at s ex." Divine intervention, after a priest in Italy fed up with worshipper's texting and making phone calls during Mass installed a cell phone jamming device. "It has stopped the problem," said Father Michele Madonna of Naples. Amen. Great ideal A Colorado school district is offering stu- dents a chance to win bi- cycles, iPods, and other prizes if they buy a federally mandated "healthy" lunch. The new nutrition rules backed by Michelle Obama caused a drop in cafeteria purchases, so officials set up a raffle to reward students who give the new food a try. "It really tastes good, said lunch facilitator Lori Burris. "It's just a bit different." Wow! An Ohio woman re- ceived a bill for $584.87 to cover the cost of the police response to her minor car accident. After Grace Jones, 20, bumped into the rear of a car, two cop cars showed up. She was billed under a local law requiring nonresi- dents to pay police costs. " I can't believe that the police would charge you for doing their job," said Jones's mother. Credulity, after a New York City high school student ad- mitted that his tale of mak- ing $72 million through Wall Street trading-publicized by New York magazine -- was LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Probate and Family Court Middlesex Division 208 Cambridge Street East Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI14P6363EA Estate of FRANK BARNEY FRANS Date of Death January 7, 2012 INFORMAL PROBATE PUBLICATION NOTICE To all persons interested in the above captioned estate, by Petition of Petitioner Christina Bashem of Chino Hills, CA.

Child labor: Mexican chil- dren are working in appall- ing conditions on Mexican farms that grow produce for American supermarkets, the Los Angeles Times reported in a four-part expose. The children forego school to pick crops in sweltering heat, dodging snakes and bugs. It appears Leonardo DiCaprio's on-off girlfriend Toni Garrn has finally had enough of the actor's wom- anizing. The German model and DiCaprio ended their 18- month relationship during a trip to Miami, and Leo was then seen leaving a night- club with the entire female population of his VIP section. "He left with 20 girls," a source told the Daily Mail (U.K.). "Leo and 20 girls. He is my hero. He was overflow- ing withmodels every- where." Santa Claus has under- gone many transformations over the centuries. The jolly rotund gent started out as St. Nicholas of Myra, a real- life, 4th-century Byzantine monk who handed out bags of money to the poor. St. Nicholas was introduced to the U.S. in the early 1800's and quickly mutated into a "right jolly old elf" thanks to the 1823 poem, "/I Visit From St. Nicholas," commonly known as "Twas The Night Before Christmas." By 1890, children could meet "Santas" at department stores -- the new name having been taken from the Dutch ver- sion of Saint Nicholas, Sinterklaas. In the 1930's Santa's bearded face was strewn over advertisements for Coca-Cola, solidifying his status as Yuletide's main man. Santa is undergoing a new, politically correct transformation: Worried that his obesity sets the wrong impression, some greeting LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MI14D3446DR DIVORCE SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION AND MAILING IBRAHIM IBRAHIM A/K/A IBRAHIM LAKEW VS.

Herb Albert's Tijuana Brass was the most popular and influential band on the 1960's and 70's, adapting the sounds of the Mexican Mariachi Bands into a commercially accept- able formula. Reminder, sev- eral years after his death in 1951, "The Eddy Duchin Story" was produced in Hol- lywood (1956) Tyrone Power played the part of Duchin and Carmen Cavallaro dubbed in the piano playing.

The part ul- timately went to Marlon Brando who won the Best Actor Oscar for his perfor- mance. And Liza Minelli won a Tony in 1965 for "Flora, the Red Menance," an Emmy in 1972 for "Liza With a Z" and an Oscar in 1973 for "Caba- ret."

El Tiante went 229-173 over 19 sea- sons with the Red Sox, Indi- ans, Yankees and 3 other teams. Meanwhile, lefty Jim Kaat won 283 games mostly with the Twins and is still looking through the Hall of Fame windows. Mostly, he played for some pretty bad teams and still was but 17 games short of being a 300 game winner. Both of these guys should have been elected into Cooperstown years ago. Dodgers Deal Kemp The Padres have the worse offense in the majors which led San Diego to get Matt Kemp and catcher Tim Federowicz from the Dodgers for catcher Yasmani Grandal and two unnamed pitchers. If all pass their physicals, the Dodgers will send $432 million to the Padres to help offset the remaining $32 million to help offset the $107 million remaining on Kemp's contract. The Kemp trade is the biggest deal in Padres history. Twins Get Santana The Twins and free agent Ervin Santana agreed to a 4-year, $55 million contract. According to sources, San- tana is guaranteed a $1 million buyout of a fifth year option. Santana aver- ages 12 wins, 207 innings and 164 strikeouts while making at least 30 starts per season. f DIAMONDS -'x ROLEX ESTATE JEWELRY Bought & Sold Jewelers Exch. Bldg. . Jim (617) 263-7766 ,.'
