NOIJ Knows (Continued from Page 1}" (actually in Metairie, not New Orleans): The Louisiana Irish-Italian Parade in Metairie always takes place the Sunday after St. Patrick's Day, starting at noon in the suburbof Metairie and proceeding down Veterans Boulevard, with a traditional detour up and down Severn Avenue {one of the city streets featuring a neutral ground). The parade originated many years ago, when Italian Hen- ry Hoff and Irishman Eddie Renton, St., derided it was time to have their own parade. The two friends" motto was, "It's about time we get together!" It didn't take long to interest others in the idea, and the "Irish- Italian Parade" was born! The original 10 board members have been in charge of organizing the event ever since their first parade in 1984. One thing that makes this parade unique is its two "Grand Marshals" -- one Italian and one Irish! Previous Grand Marshals have included New Orleans politicians, judges, and businessmen. -- from www./a/r/sh-/ta//an.org KITCHEN & BATH MASONRY REMODELING CONSTRUCTION Consbucfion Services, LLC * DEMOLITION Remodeling & Design * FENCES & DECK5 I Bostonianc onstructionservic es.c om Licensed & Insured Bo stonianc onstructionServic e s@gmail.c om ...

There's a lot of sadness in Day Square and throughout East Boston regarding Cucchiello's Bakery being given notice to vacate by the end of March to make room for another Dunkin' Donuts franchise. This city doesn't need another Dunkin' Donuts! There are far too many already. Dunkin' Donut fran- chisers are renting out every space they can find available! What happened to variety? It's slowly shrinking for the coffee consumer. Dunkin' Donuts is on almost every street comer. It's becoming impossible to find a morn-and-pop coffee shop. It's disturbing and sad to learn that a vintage bakery that offers great bread, pies, and pastries is being forced to leave the area to make room for a REPETITIVE business! ... Central Square Park doesn't look like it will be finished any time soon[ The square is a mess[ It promises to be beautiful when finished, whenever that is! ... Gove Street Citizens Association are concerned at the lack of care Boston Trade International, new owners of the large former industrial building at the comer of Orleans and Porter Streets, being taken while building a national corporate brand hotel. According to Co-chairs Jack and Gina~Scalcione of the Gove Street Citizens Asso- ciation, window flaps to pro- tect windows are not secured properly and loudly flapping at night; some of them are even ripping off and littering the neighborhood. Also, neighbors complaint of workers working late at night causing noise, and snow removal pried against neighbors' fences after storms. The original plan for the site called for a unique, indepen- dently-owned, boutique-style hotel to be built by first devel- oper, Paul Roiff. A meeting was held recently with State Rep. Adrian Madaro, new owners brothers Pravin and Sudhir Patel, and Gove Street Citizens Association, where the im- pact of construction in their neighborhood was discussed, and developers promised to clean up their act ... Channel Fish continues to campaign to stop an Ex;ersource energy substation from coming to the City Yards, arguing the mag- netic field it will produce would hinder very sensitive metal detection equipment inside their fish processing plant. Also cause for concern--a soccer field is in the planning next to the substation, which is not a good ideal ... Hollywood produc- ers, actors, and actresses have been taking money for years from tobacco lobbyists to pro- mote cigarette smoking on the screen backed by the tobacco industry. Despite the millions of deaths due to lung cancer every year due to cigarette smoking, triple the amount caused from guns and alcohol abuse, movie and television show perform- ers puff away in scene after scene receiving big bucks for this service. Money hungry moguls could care less that their young fans are emulating their idols, believing smoking is cool[ A suggestion to these dum- mies, if you really want to help the public, give up politics and stop smoking on screen. And admit smoking contributes to lung cancer! Remember "The Marlboro Man" who advertised Marlboro cigarettes back in the '50s and '60s? He died from lung cancer .... It's nice to have a clean environment and breathe fresh airl But who is going to pay? A proposed legislation aims at having the Commonwealth use clean en- ergy for all of its electric needs by 2035.
