(Circa 1950s) (Photo courtesy of Salvatore Venezia) i:i:iiii:i!ii: Gasoline Prices Rising Again You knew as Soon as all this trouble started :::: happening in the Middle East that gas prices would start soaring and they have. Now it is all Khadafy's fault they say, but most of us aren't :i:' buying that one. Liberals say we all just have to :::i~. go.electric or buy a horse I guess. It is easy for them to say get off the oil kick, but these elec- tric cars look like little coffins• Over in Eastie one gas station in Day Square was selling 87 octane for $3.32 a gallon• The one around the corner from there was just a few pennies :::ii: cheaper. Rumor has it that by late April gas prices should be around $4.00. Ouch! Owning a large V-8 these prices are really painful. Those Newspaper Photos Not Good Recently, a union rally was held at the State House in support of public employees in Wis- ::: consin. Things were pretty heated from the get go, but reportedly only got worse when members of the Tea Party showed up to counter-protest, which is within their rights. However, things started getting pretty ugly when the two sides came in contact with the other. Finally, the police had to enter the picture and close down ii:: traffic on Beacon Street• Dissent is something valued by every American who values the Bill of Rights. Scenes of protesters getting into the faces of opponents are both unacceptable and :i:.: quite "uncivil," to use the new jargon of ::::: liberals. There's an old rock and roll song with i:::i ..... lyrics that go, "There ain't no good guys. There i::::: ain't no bad guys.

On Thursday, February 25, 2011 two employees of Todisco Towing, East Boston, were struck in the breakdown lane of Route 24 South. Their reflective triangles were out, their lights on and a vehicle traveling in the breakdown lane struck the rear of the flatbed pinning them under the truck. Both men sustained serious injuries. These men are true professionals and did nothing careless in the situation. In Massachusetts the Move Over Law aims to make police, firefighters, para- medics, tow truck drivers and all roadside emergency and maintenance professionals safer on the job. The Move Over Law, which took effect March 22, 2009, requires drivers approaching a stationary emergency or maintenance vehicle with flashing lights to move to the next adjacent lane if it is safe to do so, and, barring that, to reduce their speed• Failure to comply could result in a fine of up to $100. Every year, first responders across the country are injured or killed while providing emergency help. This past summer six Mas- sachusetts state troopers were injured in as many weeks. One trooper died from his in- juries. All citizens are asked to make a per- sonal pledge to always move over to make Massachusetts roadways safer for everyone.
