Always congenial and up- beat, with a warm smile for everyone. His strong pres- ence at the Independent Newspaper's Revere office will be sadly missed ... It would really make a differ- ence if campaign commit- tees to elect candidates for state representative would remove signs of their candi- date off buildings and houses. The election is over! ...

They're describing Liana LaMattina as "Manager of the Year" after she guided the young and personable new State Representative Adrian Madaro to a stunning victory.

Congratulations to Mary Ber- ninger, and Karen Buttig- lieri, both East Boston activ- ists for many, many years. Their appointment to serve on the Massachusetts Advi- sory Board by Mayor Marty Walsh should come as no surprise to anyone. Both are well versed on impor- tant Eastie issues ... Trial jurors of convicted marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were barred from the Boston Marathon yesterday because of the creep's upcoming sen- tencing. There's a lot of mixed emotion and public opinion regarding the "Devil in Disguise" sentence. Many people want the death penalty, and don't want taxpayer's money spent to keep him alive, while there are a few that want the creep to rot in jail. However, vic- tims of this horrific crime will never get closure unless this Devil is put to death, fearing he may be allowed to marry, incite religious riots among pleasures some day ... Aaron Hernandez guilty verdict doesn't have every- one convinced. What about the two men present at Oden Lloyd's death? The Prosecu- tion never went after those two merit If we were to com- pare this case to the O.J. Simpson case, where there was far more compelling evi- dence that Simpson perpe- trated the crime and walked. the O.J. Simpson case. In the Hernandez case, no gun and no witness to the crime were presented!!! ... A lot of hoopla against police con- duct! Yet, in almost every case shown on television and in the newspapers, it appears the victims were defying police, and police had to make a decision to protect the public, and them- selvesl This country is going soft on crime, and the day will come when police officers will turn the other cheek not to be accused of racial profiling, racial dis- crimination and stereo- typing.

Pet owners live long, healthy, happy lives. Whether our pooches are big and sloppy, tiny and skittish, noble or ornery, shy or zealous, they carve out a huge place in our lives. Studies suggest that pet owners' blood pressure, cho- lesterol and even triglyceride levels are generally lower than those of people who do not own pets. Pet owners in general are less likely to need to visit a doctor or take medi- cations. What is it about pets that make our lives so much better? Perhaps it's in their ability to bring us balance and a level of intimacy we may not otherwise have. Balance, yes. If you are a terribly driven person, who would other- wise be a confirmed couch potato, your dog or cat is prob- ably getting you off the couch and on your feet. Your pet invitation to play is hard to resist. Your dog may enthusi- astically request a walk, or at least to go outside. If you are over-scheduled and too busy to breathe, when your dog asks to be petted and loved, it will cause you to take a moment to slow down and enjoy life as often as possible. If you are extremely neat and tidy, your pet will teach you that hav- ing an immaculate house may not be as important (or ob- tainable) as you once thought. If you are shy, your pet will help you to meet people and talk to them. If you are used to caring only for yourself, your pet+will show you how fulfill- ing it is to care for someone else. If you tend to feel useless or worthless, your pet will show you how important you are. If you tend to believe you are king or queen of the uni- verse, your pet will bring you the humility you need to come back down to earth, usually as you clean up after him or her. Intimacy? Definitely. We are able to have a relation- ship with our pets that is nearly impossible with other hu- mans. We can talk to them anytime, about anything. We can just be with them, stroking their fur, communicating our feelings, in our own way, with or without words. Our "pets understand our moods, comfort our sorrows, and never judge us. And unlike our human friends, our pets never outgrow us, never tire of us, and never disappoint us. No matter how badly you feel about yourself, your pet always thinks you are the best thing on two legs, and is always thrilled to see you. What can make your life better than that? That's all for now. Life is loving and enjoying your petl f LUCIA RISTORANTE & BAR Traditional Italian Cuisine 415 Hanover Street, Boston 617.367.2353 11 MountVernon Street, Winchester 781.729.0515 Peivol, I:unclion Iooms foe any Occosion Ch,.isl,+.inq B00iJal Show,+,,- BoL00 Show+,+ BiPlhcl+q B,+,.,++v,+m+.l.
