Whether good or bad, the end of the year marks a time for reflection and an opportunity to carve out our goals for the New Year. I have been editor of the Post-Gazette since 1990. The newspaper began 114 years ago and has remained in the Donnaruma family. As most of us have been hit with hard times due to the downturn of the economy, I am happy that our paper has kept going, never missing an issue. When I am often asked "How is the paper doing during these times", my answer is, in 114 years we have been through recessions and depressions and we have never missed an issue. I do not in- tend to stop now. In fact in 2009 our readership has grown and distribution has increased in many areas, including East Boston, Revere and Winthrop. I often receive letters and e-mails about our sto- ries that bring people back to their childhood or questions on how to reconnect with certain people because they were mentioned in the paper. We do our best to help them out and find that we are usu- ally successful with their requests. Our office is located right on the Freedom Trail in Boston's North End, and we frequently get visi- tors who have read the book, "The Boston Italians', by Stephen Puleo who are interested in seeing the Post-Gazette, mentioned in the book. We have also opened a satellite office in East Boston to accom- modate our readers and advertisers who live on the other side of the tunnel. I am proud to be able to continue the legacy of the Post-Gazette, started by my grandfather James. I am proud to publish a newspaper that reconnects people and promotes Italian culture and heritage. 2009 has brought us losses and gains, laughter and tears. Many changes have occurred but one thing has stayed the same; we continue to have the dedication of our writers, advertisers and most of all our readers who keep the Post-Gazette tradi- tion going.

Kelley Remembered by Sal Giarratani January 9, 2010 will mark the i st anniversary of BFD Lt. Kevin M. Kelley's passing when he died in the line of duty when Ladder 26 lost its brakes and raced down Parker Hill Avenue in Mission Hill unable to stop until it met a brick wall on the other side of Huntington Avenue. I remember Kelley as a friend and like his comrades at Ladder 26 and Engine 37 will always think of him as a lasting legacy of the Hun- tington Avenue Firehouse.
