Sarah welcomed the support- ers and as a frequent visitor to Boston on many hockey trips she opened her remarks by saying that she had the pleasure of meet- ing Mike Eruzione of Winthrop, Massachusetts the captain of the 1980 Winter Olympics United States national hockey team from the famous Miracle on Ice game. Sarah spoke of "less government spending, less taxes and less gov- ernment intrusions on small busi- nesses. More on the Tea Party Express on page 6, Res Publica by David Trumbull. Spring is here and Boston's North End is in full swing. Restaurants and shops are welcoming Spring with the varley of flower boxes and planters such as Gennaro's 5 North Square Restaurant. Charming North Square is a quaint area that is home to Sacred Heart Church and the Paul Revere House. i S.0.S. Save Our (Navy) Sea/s Our U.S. Navy SEALS are a highly trained and select group. They are considered the best of the best and are ready at moment's notice to perform in this long struggle against the enemies of freedom that President Kennedy warned about back in the midst of the Cold War. The Cold War has ended, old en- emies history, but today America faces an even greater enemy in worldwide terrorism. Kennedy created the Navy Seals (SEA, AIR, LAND) as an elite force capable of combat operations of any kind. Last September 3 rd, Special Warfare Operations 2 "d Class Mat- thew McCabe from Ohio, Jonathan Keefe of Virginia and Spe- cial Warfare Operator i st Class Julio Huertas of Illinois were members of Navy SEAL Team 10 who were dropped in harm's way to capture a high value target known as Operations Amber. The mission to capture Ahmed Hashim Abed was a success. But now the three SEALS are facing court martial because Abed claims McCabe punched him while in custody. Trials for Huertas and Keefe who are accused of covering up the alleged punch are set to begin in Iraq this month. McCabe is to be tried in Norfolk, VA in May for striking Abed and lying about it. The trio passed up a administrative discipline because they all wanted a court martial to clear their names. So far this travesty of justice has escaped notice by the liberal media. Most Americans upon hearing of this situation are out- raged by it all. We should be honoring and not prosecuting those who are trying to defend America from terrorists like Abed. Why doesn't President Obama intervene in this matter? Because to go for- ward with the trials weakens America in the eyes of terrorists the world over who are laughing at the prosecution of US Navy (Continued on Page 4) Tea Party Express committee and speakers.

Menino, Mayor, City of Boston Bullying has evolved dramatically and has now become a very serious issue affecting the safety of our city's youth. As a city, we have committed resources to help parents, teachers and others in our community know what to look for, how to report bullying safely and where help is available. The anti-bullying hotline (617-534-5050) launched in February in response to reports of cyber-bullying issues at Boston schools has been an important resource in identifying and stopping inci- dents of bullying. We established the hotline so that anyone who encountered these acts would have a safe and reliable place to turn. The hotline is staffed by trained public health professionals from the Boston Public Health Commission working in partnership with the city's Law Department, the Boston Public Schools and the Bos- ton Police Department. The Boston Public Health Commission works closely with the Law Department and Boston Police Department to (Continued on Page 4) i ,''.'
