BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 1 2, 2010 Page15 News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) leaders to take the reins of government and move us in the right direction." He is a first time candidate but his father Sal was a State Sena- tor from Somerville from 1984 to 1990. Community Meeting on Cook Street Play Area There will be a community meeting to discuss improve- ments to the Cook Street Play Area in Charlestown. Boston Parks and Recreation and the Mayor's Office of Neighborhood Services invite the public to attend the meet- ing. It will be held at the Charlestown Community Center on Medford Street on Tuesday, February 23 at 6:30pm. Fort Pointers Ask What About Them Recently, the city's power brokers met to discuss expansion ideas for the Boston Convention & Exhibi- tion Center but nobody apparently invited a repre- sentative from the Fort Point Channel neighborhood next door. Fort Point resi- dent Steven Hollinger said, "There hasn't been a single public meeting in the neigh- borhood to discuss the plan and that's troubling." Convention Partnership is a group of 27 individuals and while the group includes some South Boston resi- dents, no one from Fort Point was named to the commit- tee. Don Eyles, a member of the Fort Point arts commu- nity says, "It's shocking be- cause as we understand it, the expansion will impinge on our neighborhood quite a bit." James Rooney, MCCA ex- ecutive director states, "We can't have everyone on a group like this but we re- spect and understand the fact that we need to commu- nicate with those neighbor- hoods. Now Fort Point resi- dents wait to see if actions match those words. Emily Forgot to Check More Sources WEEI sports radio's "Dennis & Callahan" are hitting back at PBS queen Emily Rooney after she dissed the duo on TV saying the duo didn't in- vite Martha Coakley onto their morning-drive radio show until a couple of days before the election. However, Gerry Callahan and John Dennis and their show's pro- ducer lan Meropol say not so. According to them Coakley was invited to come on the air with them about a half- dozen times between the pri- mary and January 19. Ac- cording to Dennis, "Emily Rooney has bad sourcing and Emily Rooney doesn't check her facts." Gerry Callahan also a Herald columnist said it would have been "better ra- dio" to have her on than Brown. Says Callahan, "He was speaking to the choir for the most part." This whole radio feud started after her January 22 "Beat the Press" show which discussed the topic of talk radio and the Senate race. Said Rooney, "For talk radio listeners in the Boston area anyway, it was pretty much all Scott Brown all the time. It was a regular bash Martha boost Scott fest." On her show, Rooney said she was told by an aide that Dennis and Callahan didn't invite Coakley until the last two days of the race. Rooney says a "highly placed" person in the Coakley campaign told her it was until the final two days before Callahan and Dennis invited Coakley on their show and Rooney stated, "I went with that." Rooney wanted Dennis and Callahan to appear on her WGBH-FM (89.7) radio show on January 28. CaUahan said "I didn't even know she had a radio show and Dennis de- clined saying that it was his day "to floss." OUCH! Next time she better check with more than one source before going on the record and look- ing foolish. Cutting Film Tax Credits Dumb Idea The Bay State film indus- try is giving a "cut" and thumbs down to Governor Deval Patrick's plan to slash the tax credits that helped create more than $1 billion in economic activity. Patrick filed his $28.2 billion budget on January 27 that included cuts to human services, raises taxes on candy, tonic and smokeless tobacco but spares local aid. Remember, 2010 he is up for re-election. While saying, the film tax credit "has been wildly suc- cessful but has been very expensive," the governor has reduced the credit by $75 million. At a time of rising unem- ployment, this film tax credit cut could have a very seri- ous negative impact on jobs created by the film industry. Judging Bills By Sponsers? The Boston Herald's Howie Carr had another great col- umn on a recent Sunday, talking about in-state tuition for illegals and former Sena- tor Anthony Galluccio who Carr now refers to as the "ex- senator formerly of Cam- bridge, now of Billerica, as in Billerica House of Correc- tions." Galluccio sponsored, before quickly leaving Bea- con Hill, a bill entitled "An Act Relative to Equal Access to Higher Education." Howie wondered if the former sena- tor had used too much tooth- paste before trying to give foreign freeloaders yet an- other handout. Howie called this piece of legislation a bad penny that keeps returning. Seems the Democrats have learned little from the January 19 election results. The people speak out loud and clear to tone-deaf legislators. Guv Still Doesn't Get It Governor Deval Patrick in his January 21 State of the State Address apparently still doesn't get it from his re- marks directed at Bay State voters when he lectured, "Be angry, but channel it in a positive direction. It is easy to be against things. It takes tough-mindedness and cour- age to be for something." The people did something positive. They went out and voted to send a new voice from Massachusetts to the US Senate. He may think Brown is a negative but I positively disagree with his opinion as I am sure the 52 percent of Bay Starers who sent Scott Brown to Washing- ton, DC also disagrees. Petrocelli to Apara Back during the sixties, my favorite shortstops in-. cluded Ernie Banks from the Cubs, Tony Kubek from the Yankees and Luis Aparacio from either the White Sox or Orioles. In 1967, I had a new favorite in Rico Petrocelli and the Impossible Dream Team Red Sox. In 1971, the Red Sox picked up Luis Aparacio at age 37 and moved Rico over to third where he be- came an outstanding third baseman too. What amazes me to this day is that Rico at age 28 was moved to third to make room for Aparacio at shortstop at age 37. This tells you what an All-Staff and Hall of Famer Aparacio was during his baseball career. Petrocelli made a seam- less switch to third finishing with fewer errors than Golden Glove winner Brooks Robinson, the best third baseman of the sixties. EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani Jenkins Strikes Out at McGwire Ferguson Jenkins says slugger Mark McGwire owes an apology to all those pitch- ers who served up homers to him. The Hall of Fame pitcher sent a letter to the Associated Press and said McGwire has even begun to apologize to all those careers he harmed and ended. Jenkins also said he would have known how to pitch to the Big Mac. Said Jenkins, "It's tough to hit a home run off your back. In my era, Seaver, Gibson, Drysdale, Carlton, these guys would have probably knocked him on his butt". Besides Jenkins, both Hall of Famers Goose Gossage and Carlton Fisk have both knocked McGwire for the harm done to professional baseball. Cabrera Signs with Reds Shortstop Orlando Cabrera who hit .284 last season splitting time with the Ath- letics and Twins and a two- time Golden Glover just signed with the Cincinnati Reds for a 1-year $3.02 mil- lion contract as the Reds 2010 starting shortstop. Last season after landing with the Twins, he took them into the playoffs. Back in 2008 he did the same thing for the Detroit Tigers. Since leav- ing the Sox after helping them win the pennant and World Series in 2004, he has played for almost as many teams as the Red Sox have had shortstops. Still wondering why he never stays long with any one team? Rumors are ram- part about why, but who can believe rumors. He is a solid hitting, good defensive, ev- eryday kind of player. When he finally retires, he's prob- ably going to be a solid .275 lifetime hitter and while he may never get into the Hall of Fame, he is better than many recent additions to Cooperstown.
