RICKY NELSON REMEMBERED AT KOWLOON'S Folks who showed up at the Kowloon on Route 1 in Saugus for the Ricky Nelson Remem- bered Show were not disap- pointed. I was told the show was great. The live performance from the Nelson Brothers fea- tured their father's biggest hits, including "Hello Mary Lou, Goodbye Heart." As a baby boomer, I remem- ber Ricky Nelson quite well. He was considered a teen idol back in the '50s and '60s. I al- ways watched the Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet where, at the end of each episode, Ricky would highlight his latest hit song. His dad, Ozzie Nelson, a bandleader in the '30s and '40s, made great use of that TV show he developed. It brought Ricky Nelson into the homes of millions every Wednesday evening. The show was great and it certainly ,helped make Ricky Nelson the most popular singer in America at that time for people in my generation. ANYBODY ELSE SEE THAT DCR PICKUP DRIVING ON BENNINGTON STREET? I was two car-lengths back and one lane over when I saw vehicles in front of me playing dodge. It seemed a DCR truck hauling bags of untied trash started .losing bags off the back into traffic. As I prepared to pass it on the right, I saw an- other bag planning its escape, too. I thought I was watching Cool HandLuke as these trash bags were making breaks for freedom. It would have been funny, if not for the traffic night- mare being played out on this East Boston road. Next time, tie down those bags. LATEST NEWS FROM EAST BOSTON MUSEUM & HISTORICAL SOCIETY Remember when East Boston had those bright orange streetcars?

Michael Capauano will be facing an op- ponent in his 2016 bid for re- election to his House seat in the 7th District. Longtime Beacon Hill Republican political activ- ist Virgil Aiello is out collecting signatures to run for Congress as an Independent this coming November Election Day. SPECIAL ELECTION ON SOUTH SHORE, TOO While voters in East Boston were voting in a special primary to fill the State Senate seat left vacant by Anthony Petruc- celli who retired, voters down on the South Shore held their own special election to fill the vacant State Senate seat of longtime Senator Bob Hedlund who got himself elected Mayor of Weymouth last year. This South Shore district is very competitive. Republicans are still running and getting elected down there. Hedlund, a Republican, was getting re- elected like clockwork and now the May 10th election will pit Democratic primary winner Joan Meschino against Repub- lican Patrick O'Connor, cur- rent Weymouth Town Council president. In the just concluded prima- ry, O'Connor was getting high marks and backing from many trades unions. He was even on the digital billboard on the Expressway at Local 103 IBEW in Dorchester. Rarely does o.ne see a Republican name on that billboard. WHEN IT'S YOUR TIME, IT'S YOUR TIME Recently, after filling up my car at a gas station on Hancock Street in Quincy, I waited to exit Hancock Street to the left. A line of traffic kept passing by me, and I waited and waited. Then I saw a student driver car approaching and I decided to make my exit. Either it was a great move on my part or my time would come. You never know with student drivers at the wheel. Turned out it wasn't my time, and I continued on with my day. Leave the to Us!
