Page14 POST-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY 25,2011. (FROM AL/AN NEWSP ERS AND OTHER P LICATIONS) EXAMPLES OF FRINGE BENEFITS ENJOYED BY ITAL- IAN PARLIAMENTARIANS! We have, on occasions, described some of the unique benefits that members of the Italian Parliament enjoy. Each member is ent'itled to receive medical assistance to the tune of 11/2 million curD. There is also a budget that covers photo-op to all members at the cost of 302,000 euro. Then there is parking for the parliamentarians' vehicles at the cost of only 1 million curD. To park motorcycles, inside a garage, it costs another 33,000 curD. Among the suppliers of the Chamber's mem- bers there is an entrepreneur by the name of Angelo Jacorossi the former "king of the Roman Oil,". who was once kidnapped by the "Kidnapping Anonymous," in the 1970's, and also being investigated in the 1990's. To update the TV satellite channel of the Chamber, two consultants were hired: Rosaria Marchese (paid 40,000 curd), appointed by Minister Bond[, the chairman of the "Cinema Commissidn," and Gustavo Pacifico (paid 50,000 euro) in charge, of edit- ing of the Stream Channel 2, in which appears "Big Brother." All the care for the artistic activities at Montecotorio and organization of exhibits are under the care of architect Cristina Mazzantini (paid 100,000 euro), who is the wife of Pier Ferdinando Casini! THERE ARE TOO MANY PROVINCES IN ITALYI Some of the new organized provinces in Italy, as well as some of the old ones, may be dissolved and for a good reason: low popu- lation in each provincial territory. All the provinces with a total population under 220,000 inhabitants may soon dis- appear, merging with adjacent provinces. Here is an ex- ample of "doomed" provinces: Biella in Piemonte Region, Fermo in the Marche Region, Ascoli Piceno also in the Marche Region, Matera in Basilicata, Crotone in Calabria, Isernia in Molise, Rieti in Lazio, Massa Carrara in Toscana, and Vibo Valentia in Calabria.

JENNIE BENEDETTO VOLPE REMEMBERED Former Bay State First Lady Jennie Benedetto Volpe, wife of the late Gov. John A. Volpe, passed away in Janu- ary at age 98. She was born in the farming region of Abruzzo and lived in Pesco- sansonesco before she and her mother emigrated in 1915 to join her father in Wake- field. She graduated from a nursing program at Winches- ter Hospital before doing fur- ther training at Bellevue Hos- pital in New York City. She met her husband who was a member of the Verdi Band in Malden while going to local festivals. John Volpe was first elected governor in 1960 and would go on to winning two more terms in the 1960s. He became the nation's first Sec- retary of Transportation in 1969 under President Nixon erans Council, which spon-and eventually Ambassador to sors and organizes the parade Italy in 1973. reports that 75 units have al- Mrs. Volpe was reportedly ready signed.

NEIGHBORHOODS VALUED AS FIRST PRIORITY First Priority Credit Union on Bennington Street had a reach out to local busi- nesses recently down at Ecco Restaurant. The credit union sent out many invites to small businesses in the area to come face to face with the folks with money to lend to folks doing business right here, Bringing folks together gives everyone a chance to see how their commercial needs can be met. It also gives the credit union a chance to see just what is happening with the neighborhood's retail face. There are a lot of great people over at First Priority. Among them is my good friend Paul Travaglini. The next time you see him, tell him that Sal sent you.

DEPRESSION AND BI-POLAR AWARENESS On Wednesday, March 2 at 6pm at the Orientation Glass Room of the Copley Square Boston Public Library, a one- hour educational program featuring medical experts and a panel of patients and families will be talking about their experiences, the ben- efits of treatment and recov- ery. The hope of those behind the program is that those who watch it will come away with a better understanding that depression is a treatable ill- ness. The event is free and open to the public and IS vived by one daughter, a sis- ter and four grandkids.

CARR CROSSES MEDIAN STRIPS THIS TIME As I read Howie Carr's Feb- ruary 9 commentary on the Boston Herald (DeLeo's fall unique for a Mass. Speaker), I thought it was beneath Howie's usual style, which likes to pull no punches and certainly enjoys his eriisable ways, but poking fun at the House Speaker for getting injured on an icy sidewalk or dredging up personal family issues is rabid!dish at best.

OUTHIE' NEW LOOK Back in December, Jason Owens, Andy Fadous and Matt Thayer opened up American Provisions at the corner of First and Broadway and brought a gourmet corner store previously seen in the South End, Roslindale Square or the Peoples Republic of Cambridge. All three guys worked together at the Bos- ton Beer Garden. The three believe the demographics of South Boston have been evolving in recent years as the area gets more gentrified and they are hoping with a shortage of parking spots that their place will become a des- tination store that folks will seek out. The place at 613 East Broadway is open 7 days a week.

We did witness some change last November, but not nearly enough. For those who want to see the full political change Brown's victory promised, D'Arcangelo's playbook pro- vides hope. For those who refuse to accept the notion that nothing can be done to pu l] back against the powvr of public-sector unions and Democratic interest groups, D'Arcangelo's strategy fuels momentum. For those who wish to add a bright shade of red to this deeply blue state, D'Arcangelo's ideas are a green light to move forward.
