PROVIDENCE Talk of Many Things (Continued from Page 10) the shopping news for night clubs. After 47 years, the paper didn't reinvent itself well and has crashed into a newspaper desert. Rightfully so, it didn't deserve to con- tinue. I remember reading it when I was 18 years old and during my 4 college years, I read B.A.D. Boston After Dark every week to get an alternative slant on the news. Recently, down in Attleboro, I picked up its sis- ter paper, The Providence Phoenix, still a newspaper. While many of the same political stories appeared in both, that paper has re- mained interesting and is still getting published. Years ago, Boston After Dark had to merge with theReal Paper to keep going and .that was how and why the Boston Phoenix began. I guess a phoenix unlike cats only gets one extra life. GREENWAY CAROUSEL BECOMING- REALITY Boston Greenway has started the $1.5 million transformation into what its conservancy calls "ro- bust" and "beautifully land- scaped" park complete with a merry-go-round year round. They received the gift from Tiffany & Company Foundation which will fund the carousel. Construction should be complete by summer's end. JOE FITZGERALD ON THE PHOENIX Joe Fitzgerald had a great recent column in the Boston Herald on the passing of The Phoenix. I think Joe was right. Anytime a newspaper dies, even if you weren't a big fan of it, means we all lose something important in a democracy. Joe even quoted Thomas Jefferson ST. JUDE AND ST. ANTHONY NOVENA May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and for- ever. Sacred Heart of Jesus pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, help of the hopeless, pray for us. St. Anthony, most loving protector and wonder worker, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day and by the 8th day your prayer will be answered. It has never been known to fail." Publication must be promised. My prayers have been answered. Favor received. A.T.P. who once said, "Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a gov- ernment, I should not hesi- tate a moment to prefer the latter."
