GUEST EDIT( )RIAL "ELECTRYING Bad News for Eagle HillT' by Sal Giarratani Luke many Eagle Hill residents, I am somewhat disturbed by the news that Eversource wants to build a substation and 115,000 volt power lines. The company says increased electri- cal demand is up locally, making this substation a necessity. Just because they say something doesn't mean it's the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Also, the Jeffries Point neighborhood is getting all kinds of positive attention and advocacy from City Hall. Developers are all over that area of my town, and what is being proposed seems quite positive for residents. The East Boston waterfront is a big-selling area as new residences get built or placed on drawing boards for additional development. However, take a ride down to my neighborhood Eagle Hill; I wonder why the powers that be at Eversource, MassPort and City Hall seem to be treating my neighborhood as the rear end of East Boston. We're not! With all the potential staring us in the face down by the Chelsea Creek waterfront, the last thing we need is an addi- tional 115,000 volts of electricity running through this neigh- borhood. It doesn't matter to me whether it is strung out on electrical towers or buried out of sight beneath the surface, I don't like this idea. Over the years, I have noticed that electrical wires and cancer often run hand in hand with electrical toxicity. In neighbor- hoods I once lived in, such as North and South Weymouth, where new housing has been built on apparent toxic govern- ment surplus lands, folks who live nearby electrical towers often see spikes in cancer. Is this a coincidence or is there something more going on? However, I am disappointed hearing that a land swap be- tween the city and MassPort worked out during the tail-end of the Menino administration gave the Eagle Hill parcel of land to Eversource in exchange'for Eversource land on Bremen Street needed for the new East Boston Branch Library. It is a very good library site next to the Bremen Street Playground, but the swap apparently brings this substation which is not seemingly good for Eagle Hill Where was all the transparency? Why are Eagle Hill residents just learning all about this "fair accompli?" Is it because the powers that be think that they can get away with it because my neighborhood has an overwhelmingly immigrant population? Eagle Hill is not a rear end for anyone or anything. It is our neighborhood and we live here and deserve respect, not disrespect. We need more answers and not more spin. Kudos to Chan- nel Fish for keeping this issue alive down by Eagle Square.

And no one knows the heartache As we try to carry on. Our hearts still ache with sadness and many tears still flow, What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know. Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still. There will always be heartache, and often a silent tear, But always a precious memory Of the days when you were here. If tears could make a staircase, And heartaches make a lane, We'd walk the path to heaven And bring you home again. Missing you every day, but especially on your Birthday. We hold you close within our hearts, And there you will remain, To walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again. Love Always, Your Husband Frank, Your Daughter Jeannine, Your Son Frank Jr., and His Wife Andrea, Your Son Philip and His Wife Toniann, and Your Grandchildren, Anthony, Olivia, Payton, Presley, Angelique and Vanessa
