POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 7, 2017 PAGE 7 Mrs. Murphy... As l See It Thursday, March we have charities ... As East 30% Mayor Marty Boston is clearly trying to move ~.~ .IL Walsh raised forward, there is a growing a transgender threat of drug addiction flag at City Hall signaling his unwavering support for transgender people...Goodbye to March, the worst month of this year so far that ended with another snow storm! And April hasn't started any better!... Female joggers on Revere Beach are on their toes after a woman jogging last Wednesday around 6:00 am reported that a man attacked her by jumping in front of her and grabbing her front and back while she was running. The attack was near the St. George condo area. There was an all-out State Police car patrol presence Wednesday that will probably remain in effect till the culprit is caught ... Boo-hoo, non-profit agencies are sobbing over President Donald Trump's budget cuts. Maybe the President should reconsider putting more money into education budgets, but for the rest of it, it's fine! It's time some of these organizations start looking for private charity funding elsewhere, and stay out of the hard-working tax payer's pockets. That's why looming. Communities and law enforcement are leery about possible solutions. A user must want to help themselves; no one can be forced into treatment. Some who do get treated do get better, but the numbers are far too low ... Drug dealers are increasingly growing by .the numbers; the money is far too easy to make. Drug dealers are the cause and until they're arrested and taken off the streets, this impossible problem will never be resolved. But it's more easily said than done .... The comer of Wally and Bennington Streets were officially dedicated to Albert ~Buddy" Mangini last week as witnessed by a full audience. A luncheon at the East Boston Yacht Club followed with a complete Chinese food buffet compliments of Great Chef. Buddy has served on numerous committees throughout the years and this honor of a new square bearing his name couldn't have been given to a more humble and deserving man ... Happy Easter to All ... Till next time...

East Boston II Luau II by Sal Giarratani With winter now dragging on, if we can't be in Hawaii, we can at least pretend with a great Luau Party over at the Beach- mont VFW Post which almost 200 folks did on Friday, March 104, and thank God they did because we got another nasty snowstorm a few days later. However, that night it was all hot sun, high temps, and sandy beaches for a few hours. Ev- eryone was partying to Mr. DJ Damien. The food was delicious thanks to Great Chef, and the music top-tappingly great, too. Every- one who was anyone was there. I came dressed in green because I am so into St. Patrick during the month of March. Cassy M. and crew getting ready to Pah-ty.
