News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) Also, did you see the re- cent photo he sent out to his supporters showing him sur- rounded by Governor Deval Patrick and U.S. Sen. Eddie Markey? Maybe he is thinking about 2014 but sure looks like he's switching parties too. Who needs Democrats when Republicans have. a character like this guy. Who knows, he may not even be Latino too. What About Brown? I still like former U.S. Senator Scott Brown and it is looking like he is on the way to running for the U.S. Senate from New Hamp- shire. I supported him twice in 2010 and agai n in 2012. He isn't a Tea Party Repub- lican which seems to be &&&&ing off the Conserva- tive Right but he also isn't a left-wing RINO. This isn't Texas, this is Midnight Blue Massachusetts. Brown ran a better campaign first time around. He let Warren off the hook too much. Trying to be Mr. Nice Guy. I hope he does declare up north because it would send U.S. Sen. deannie Shaheen back to the private sector again. Any conservative New Hampshire=ite who wouldn't back Brown against Shaheen in November 2014 would be voting against their own best interests. Brown is no liberal. He is a winning New England Republican kind of candidate. Don Mitchell, 70, Actor on "Ironside" When I was younger back in the late '60s and into the '70s, I liked to watch cop shows. These programs remain a staple with TV viewers. Good guys win, bad guys go to the slammer. One of my favorites was Raymond Burr of "Perry Mason" fame who went on to be the wheel-chaired bound Chief of Detectives Robert Ironside of the San Fran- cisco Police Department. One of the show's characters was a young American guy Don Mitchell who played Mark Sanger his driver- bodyguard. On the show he was in his middle 20-some- thing. Why shouldn't that actor have been 70 years old. After all, I am just a few years younger than he was. Obama, Kerry Pushing Overseas U.S. Weapons Sales Where are all those out- raged liberals? The above headline was followed by a small headline, "Huge rise in defense exports defended as security benefit." The Obama Administration is aggres- sively pushing to help U.S. weapons manufacturers sell more arms overseas, ships. missiles and aircraft. Since 2009, the United States has led a surge in global arms deals accounting for nearly one-third of the $30 billion in weapons transfers in 2012. No one can blame Bush for this but if Bush were presi- dent today, you can bet lib- erals would be all over him for it. Liberals love giving Obama all those free passes.

Box 130135, Boston, MA 02113 CHAMBER OF COMMERCE DELIVER Early Christmas to Nazzaro Youth St. John School children pictured with Santa Claus at the Nazzaro Center. On Wednesday, December 18 th, the members of the Nazzaro Center Youth Pro- gram enjoyed a Christmas Party that they'll never for- get. Thanks to the North End Chamber of Commerce, the center was able to treat about 100 children to one of the best Christmas parties that the Nazzaro has ever hosted. Thanks to a very generous financial donation from the Chamber, each child and parent were treated to Umberto's pizza, cake and ice cream, various snacks, pickles and drinks. Each child also received a present from Santa and to top off the whole event, were treated to a magic show! Although there were still a couple of school days left before the Christmas re- cess, this party marked the Santa and Elves. unofficial start of vacation week for all the kids and was a nice early surprise to their holiday season. It should be noted that, besides all this Nazzaro Center teens and Santa. charity and goodwill that made this party possible, the Chamber of Commerce had already donated 20 Stop & Shop gift cards to various North End families. The members cannot be thanked enough for all their benevolence that was truly appreciated more than they know. Special thanks also to Century Bank Vice- President Lena Buttiri who was instrumental in work- ing with the Chamber on this project and helped facili- tate all the necessary logis- tics to pull it off. The North End and the Nazzaro Center are fortu- nate indeed to have such silent partners willing to help keep this community the most tightly knit in the city.
