I thought about Michael Bare the morning of the parade and how he never knew that last year's parade would be his last in Southie. Perhaps, the rain symbolized the tears falling for Michael's passing. Last year during the mayoral race, Bare was still out there fighting for his candidate despite his illness. Poli- tics was his best medicine and it kept him going. Folks often missed him because he wasn't a marcher; he was the guy driving the sound truck. His voice was loud and clear introducing the approaching candidate. He also seemed to know everyone along the route. He was part of a living history of the neighb0rh00d's politics. His funeral was at St. Monica's on the 17th of March. His passing is a great loss for South Boston because a community isn't street names and build- ings; it is people like Michael Bare who are the building blocks of a neighborhood. Politicians come and go but folks like Bare never go away. They bare their hearts and souls for their hometown. All who knew him will miss him which means everyone will miss him. 2n Anniversary- March 25,2008 2008-2010 "If tears could build a stairway, And memories a lane, I'd walk right up to Heaven And bring you home again." In our hearts today and always. Love and miss you. ALL YOUR FAMILY LETTERS POLICY The Post-Gazette invites its readers to submit Letters to the Editor.

Long-time Boston restaurateur and North End Chamber Chairman, Frank DePasquale, proposed the idea to the neighborhood res- taurant community in order to stimulate neighborhood business as well as the economy. "As restaurateurs, my colleagues and I feel a responsibility to stimulate busi- ness in the neighborhood, as well as in Bos- ton," said DePasquale. A list of some of the neighborhood's most beloved restos have already signed up to par- ticipate including: Bricco, Ricardo's Ristor- ante, Strega, Cantina Italiana, Ristorante Fiore, Mare, Tresca, Nico, Trattoria II Panino, Florentine Caf6, La Famiglia Spagnuolo, North Btreet Grille, Rist0rante Damiano, Ristorante Limoncello, Gennaro's 5 North Square, Caf6 Graffiti and La Summa.
