Shallow The governors of the various states are facing the fact there are some three trillion dollars in unfunded government union pension .plans and healthcare policies. Governor of Wisconsin proposed a bill that would close a projected 83.6 billion shortfall by forcing public employees to pay 5.8 percent of their salary toward their pensions and 12.6 percent of healthcare premiums, up from 6 percent on average. Mr. Walker aims to cut many of the collective bargaining rights from union mem- bers, a move he says will prevent massive layoffs but which union members say will take away a basic human right. Rather than watch the bill pass over their minority votes, 14 Democratic state senators fled Wisconsin, bringing the legislation process to a halt and giving time for union backers, including a political organization affiliated with President Obama, to rally support at the statehouse. In an interview on Fox News, Governor Walker said, regarding the 14 Democratic senators, "They are hiding out in another state. You know, unlike the vast major- ity of state and local government employees, most of those employees -- 300,000 -- showed up for work today," Walker told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren in a telephone interview. "Unlike those around the Capitol, and unlike those 14 state senators, Democrats, who decided to hide out, apparently down in Rockford, Illinois ...? They are hiding in hopes that somehow that will test the resolve. "If anything, I think it's made the Republicans in the Assembly and Senate stronger. They are not going to be bullied, they're not going to be intimidated," he said. "I've said all along: The thousands of people who are storming the Capital have a right to be heard. But I'm not going to let them overshadow the voices of the millions of taxpayers in the state of Wisconsin who deserved to be heard, as well." Governor Walker should, (if as most governors do, have the power) fire all the teachers for their contempt for the educational process and for using young children (Continued on Page 15) PRENDERE DUE PICCIONI CON UNA FAVA.

Dr. Kimberly D'Eramo Opens Wellesley Sports Medicine A new ostheopatic sports medicine practice has re- cently opened in Wellesley. Under the guidance and supervision of Dr. Kimberly D'Eramo, the Wellesley Sports Medicine facility provides new options for all those suffering from pains, trauma or who just want to get their body vitality back. For D'Eramo, the ostheo- patic center's goal is to bring better health and health consciousness to her com- munity in the greater Bos- ton area. The philosophy be- hind it is straightforward: the body constantly strives for better health, doing its best to achieve the goal. Symptoms which manifest themselves as illness are indicators that the body is not getting what it needs in order to manifest its true vitality. Usually, ideal health is not experienced because the body is either not getting all it needs (sufficient nutri- ents, appropriate blood flow and drainage, adequate rest and hydration to cells) or is getting too much of what it does not need. (Excessive toxin exposure, metabolic stressors such as sugar or dietary intolerance, medica- tions which cause harm.) D'Eramo graduated from University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2002, after which she also completed a one year fellowship in Osteopathic Medicine and Anatomy. She is currently an Associate Professor at both. UNECOM and at DeBusk College of Osteo- pathic Medicine where she teaches Osteopathic Medi- 'cine and Emergency Medi- cine. A board certified Emer- gency Medicine physician, D'Eramo completed training in Functional Medicine at the Institute for Functional Medicine and uses her expertise in conjunction with osteopathic manipula- tion to heal patients with varied chronic illnesses such as autoimmune dis- ease, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and overweight. An avid marathon and hal- marathon runner, D'Eramo is the daughter of Marie and Edward D'Eramo, and granddaughter of the late Gemma (of the North End) and Dr. Edward M. Cardillo of Everett.
