BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 8, 2010 Page 1 5 News Briefs (Continued from Page I) New North End Business It is always good to see new businesses open up in the North End. Sandy Russo will soon be opening her candy store LULU's at 571/2 Salem Street. Quiet Day After at Contrada's The morning after Christ- mas is Boxer Day in England, St. Stephen's feast day to Catholics and a quiet morn- ing for the North End. When I arrived at Contrada's, Dolores was behind the counter and Pans was eat- ing his usual raisin toast. We read each other items out of the Boston Herald that made us all laugh. I ordered my usual bagel sandwich and coffee. Pans gave me the rest of his toast and left. I stayed for a while, and then Phil crossed over Hanover Street looking for a cup of coffee. When I left, Phil and Dolores were chatting. Hanover Street still looked like a ghost-town. You could not find one yuppie walking his or her doggie either. Townie Santa a Big Success Townie Santa started in Charlestown some 27 years ago. The purpose then and now is to bring Christmas cheer to shut-ins, the elderly and the infirmed among us. It has been a way to make Christmas a joyful time of year. Helping each other. Loving each other. Remem- bering each other. The Charlestown Patriot played a major role in establish- ing this great Charlestown Christmas tradition. The Charlestown Patriot Bridge keeps the tradition going. A big thanks to all the volun- teers who do so much work every year. This year 41 Townies who might other- wise have watched Christ- mas go by with only memo- ries of long ago, have great new memories to sustain them. Great Roslindale Poster The folks at Roslindale Main Streets designed a re- ally cool poster on Roslindale Village trying to get folks to make purchases locally to help build up neighborhood businesses. week because I think it is full of good positive stories. I will try and be more upbeat in the future. Have a Happy New Year to you Mary and everyone else out there. Darlene on the D.L. Darlene D'Elia, one half of the "The Dynamic Duo". on weekends at Contrada's is out of work due to a recent New Year's Eve injury. She was crossing over to the North End at the corner of Causeway and North Washington Streets when she was hit by a car turning right, as in right into her. She's OK but somewhat sore. Keaney Square is a hor- rible intersection to cross. Meanwhile, Darlene hopes to return soon and get back to Contrada's. From the Old South End Alison Barnet was the South End News' founding editor and wrote for the South End GLUE magazine. She has recently started a weekly column on the old days in the South End Some great stuff In her columns. My Nephew Jacob My nephew Jacob Schaefer of Roslindale participated in the Holy Name School's Christmas Assembly. His class sang "Dominic the Donkey" which Jacob really likes since it was the name of his papa and his great grandpa. Soon he will be getting a cousin Dominic down in Austin, Texas too. Say Hello to City Councilor Ayanna Pressley By the time you're read- ing this, January 4 will have passed and there are sev-eral new city councilor coming aboard the Bos- ton City Council. My favor- ite is Ayanna Pressley of Dorchester. I worked with her on the campaign trail and never had a doubt that she was a winner. It was nice to be at a victory party for a change.

As I flipped through the pages, I came across a piece by Tom Verducci. Says Verducci, "It is not so much what he accomplished at 35 -- a fifth World Series ring capping a historic season, to be sure -- as how the Yankees' shortstop arrived at his iconic place. Being the ulti- mate team player and a role model synonymous with EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani winning has brought him still another title "2009 Sportsman of the Year DEREK JETER." You gotta fred a copy of the December 7 Sports Illustrated. Great pro- file on a great player. A's Closing in on Coco Crisp The Oakland Athletics want free agent Coco Crisp for a 1-year deal with a club option in 2011. The former Sox outfielder underwent season-ending shoulder surgery in June and batted just .228 with 3 homeruns and 14 RBIs in only 49 games. In 2009. The Kansas City Royals declined the $8 million club option to bring back Crisp in 2010. Hot Stove League Though the following item isn't about baseball, I still thought it belongs here. It seems the guys down at the Hanover Street Firehouse are about to get a kitchen re-do from Fire Headquar- ters. Their kitchen is indeed due for a makeover. You know, new fridge, new sink, and new stove. WHOAI Not the stove. The bean counters over at Southampton Street think the old stove is still service- able. Hey, stoves are big ticket items, eh? Mean- while, all you have to do is look at the old thing and you just start singing that Sozio jingle. The boarded up Mass Mental Health Center build- ing over in the Longwood Medical Area probably has better stoves inside it. Firefighters risk their lives for us and keep us safe at home. The least we can do for them is get 'em a new stove before the old one burns the place down someday. Mets Ink Escobar The New York Mets have signed right-hander Kelvim Escobar to a one year contract reportedly for $1.25 million. Escobar, an 18- game winner in 2007, missed nearly all of the past two season with the Angels because of shoulder trouble.

Together, we should develop these thousand acres into a hub for knowledge workers and creative jobs. Our man- date to all will be to invent a 21 st century district that meets the needs of the in- novators who live and work in Boston - to create a job magnet, an urban lab on our shore, and to harvest its les- sons for the city. I was labeled the Urban Mechanic sixteen years ago, but that nickname is out- dated now because we are all urban mechanics. All of us are eyes and ears on the street. Neighbors are our greatest source of data, and our citizens are the best civic entrepreneurs. Guided by this belief, I'm issuing an open call to foundations, entrepreneurs, technolo- gists, and neighbors: Help us make Boston the hub for municipal innovation and LEGAL NOTICE The following vehicles have been towed by TODISCO TOWING 94 Condor Street East Boston, MA 02128 The following vehicles have been towed by Todisco Towing, 94 Condor Street, East Boston, MA 02128.

When I made my first in- augural address, I promised to help bring about a century of inclusiveness in govern- ment. We've made much progress, but we must re- commit ourselves to that ambition. Nothing would make me prouder than for my grandkids to say their papa helped all of us in Bos- ton truly know each other. When we look back four years from now -- when we meet these goals and many others -- we'll have come very far. But our full achieve- ment may be determined as much by how we get there as by what we get done. My friend Ted Kennedy said once that, "All of us will live on in the future we make."
