BOSTON POST,GAZETTE,FEBRUARY 19, 2010 Page 15 President's Day (Continued from Page 14) Polly would not be raised by a stepmother, as she had been. But no sooner was Jefferson introduced to Maria Luisa than he began to devise how he could spend every possible moment with his lively, beautiful lady. Soon he was contriving to develop projects with an "Italian connection" to pre- vent prolonged separations, for example a possible visit to view art in Maria Luisa's birth city of Florence, brush- ing up on his Italian conver- sations, now rusty since the departure of his neighbor Philip Mazzei. But Jefferson always had a pragmatic side. Especially after a long series of diplo- matic checks in London and at Versailles, he had be- come determined to break United States economic de- pendence on England and ZUMIX (Continued from Page 7) to know the folks that make the station happen.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 2/19/10 France by forging new trade ties with Italy. Especially interested in diversifying plantation agri- culture and improving the lot of laborers, black and white, in his native region, Jefferson wrote to Governor John Rutledge of South Carolina in 1788, shortly after his tour to the Mediter- ranean, "Italy is a field where the inhabitants of Southern States may see much to copy in agriculture and a country with which we shall carry on considerable trade." Unfortunately since Si- gnora Conway inconve- niently already had a hus- band who had business to attend to in England, and since Thomas Jefferson had business in the United States, the romance was just one of those things, and remained just a happy memory for the lifelong Italophile president.

WITNESS, HON. JOHN M. SMOOT, First Justice of this Court. Date: February 12, 2010 Richard lannella, Register of Probate Run date: 2/19/10 EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani Thoughts from Al Capozzi Al Capozzi recently e-mailed me to say that he liked my Extra Innings column and that he had a few short tidbits on baseball to share with me, none of which I had known before his e-mail. So, I thought why not share them with this column's baseball fans. Hi Sal, I enjoy reading the Gazette weekly, although I almost never agree with the political columns, I still find them interest- ing. I do look forward to your Extra Innings column, baseball has always been the great equalizer in this country. I have a few short tidbits on baseball just in case you haven't heard of these before. How did Harry Carey become the Cubs announcer after he announced many years for the Cards? Gussie Busch, owner of the Cards, was suspicious that his wife was having an affair, so he hired a detective to follow her and Harry kept popping up, then they checked phone records and saw all the calls between Harry and Mrs. Busch. WrigleyviUe Elston Howard grew up a few miles from Dago Hill in St. Louis and from there he learned how to make St. Louis spaghetti ... First you make the gravy and instead of boil- ing the spaghetti in water you just place it in the bubbling gravy. Elston & Me After Gehrig retired, Mayor La Guardia appointed him to the parole board. Rocco Barbella was the first case to come before him. Gehrig denied him parole because he believed Rocky was causirtg too much hard- ship for his mother. Iron Horse Boys Of Summer? I really didn't know what to call this piece. Should it be BOYS OF SUMMER or should it be OLD MAN AND THE SEA? After all, this summer when I take to the field at first base in the West End Softball League, I will be 62 years of age. I find it difficult to come to terms with the once 17 year older playing first base for the St. Philip Phillies in Roxbury is now that old. I still use the same glove I bought for five bucks at Raymond's back in 1965. I do also own a newer backup glove that I pur- chased for 25 bucks in 1982. I can't stand today's gloves. They seem big enough to catch basketballs in if you ask me. I had fun looking at an old photo of me at bat back in 1978 with the Fenwood Flyers when I played, of course, first base. Over my baseball/softball career, I was never a home run threat, but I was a good spray hitter who could perfectly place balls in play between infielders or just out of reach over their heads. An extra base hit was a rarity no matter my age. I've always been a good op- posite field hitter too. Last summer, I did get a double which al- most never ever happens. I had to run at top speed and by the time I made second base safe, I thought I needed EMS. Some- times younger players tell me I run like an old lady and I retort, try running when you are my age. I laugh, they laugh and then never bring it up again. When I was 25 years old, I ran like a 25 year old. I'm older now and slower too. When I first started playing first base, Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron and Willie Mays were all still playing. I'm not as good as I was way back, but I'm still playing and Mark McGwire is retired too. News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) versa. Recently, a friend of mine, Lew Finfer, from Dor- chester and director of Mass Community Action Network, suggested that President Obama create "a WPA-type jobs program modeled after FDR's plan." The WPA, like the Civilian Conservation Corps put Americans to work and took them off the streets during the Great De- pression. With hindsight, I'm not that sure it was as much a jobs program as it was eas- ing the anger of the Ameri- can working-class being job- less. There's a difference be- tween both of these ideas. My father always praised Roosevelt for his leadership during the Great Depression and loved his WPA job. My Uncle Nealy had the same feelings toward Roosevelt and his CCC job in the state's forests. The greatest jobs pro- gram during the Great De- pression sadly was WWII, which brought unemploy- ment down to near zero. I'm not proposing moving from Afghanistan to Iran but an alphabet soup of public job agencies like the WPA aren't going to cut it here in Amer- ica. Government needs to assist the private sector in creating the atmosphere for getting the country going again. Government isn't sup- posed to do everything for us. That's not the American way. Good Country America Did you know that there are 37 million Americans -- one in eight people -- who turned to food pantries and soup kitchens during 2009. President Obama has a goal of ending childhood hunger in the US by 2015, but with high unemployment and growing health care costs, this goal will probably be as worthless as President Lyndon B. Johnson's, who declared a War on Poverty only to badly lose that war. Last WWI Vet Still Going Strong at 109 America's last surviving World War I veteran is now 109. Frank Woodruff Buckles celebrated his birthday on February 1 St with family and friends at his West Virginia home in Charleston. He's hoping to celebrate a few more birthday cakes and his birthday wish is to see the dedication of a new World War I national memorial in Washington, DC. President Obama Still Off-key Despite all the protests over holding the KSM 9/11 trial in the heart of Man- hattan and closing down New York's Financial Dis- trict, President Obama still seems defiant in his wish to bring the 9/11 terrorists to trial in the shadow of Ground Zero. He sees it as a sym- bolic victory for the Ameri- can Justice System while most of America thinks it is pretty stupid, including New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. For Obama to treat this upcoming trial as many other trials for ter- rorists here in America is not to understand the dif- ference between the'm and this KSM trial which could very well be the trial of the 21 st Century. Closing down a good chunk of New York City would actually be another victory for terrorism. Unions Backed Wrong Horse in Race United States Representa- tive Stephen Murphy, the best congressman in Massa- chusetts was reportedly criti- cized by major union leaders both in the private and pub- lic sector and led to his apparent decision to stay put in the 9 th District. Mean- while, union favorites an- nounced for the US Senate seat and all were defeated which ended up giving the US Senate seat to Republi- can Scott Brown. Had Brown had to face Lynch on Janu- ary 19 th, I believe Lynch would have won the seat. Union leaders apparently didn't like Lynch's position of the health care reform bill nor his position on the war on terrorism. In the end, they get Scott Brown in the Senate and Lynch still in the House. It couldn't happen to a better crew, could it? Ash Wednesday (Continued from Page 6) Adam and Eve after they eaten of the forbidden fruit and fallen into sin. These words indicated to our first parents the bitterest fruit of their sin, namely death. In the context of the Ash Wednesday imposition of ashes, they remind each penitent of their sinfulness and mortality, and, thus, their need to repent and get right with God before it is too late. The cross reminds each penitent of the good news that through Jesus Christ crucified there is forgive- ness for all sins, all guilt, and all punishment. The ashes used in this ceremony are made by burn- ing the remains of the palms blessed on the Palm Sunday of the previous year. WWW. BOSTON POSTG AZETTE. COM
