GUEST EDITORIAL TERRORIST #2 LAWYERS UP by Sal Giarratani I refuse to give either of the terrorists names because they can't be real human beings after the act they perpetrated. Their actions were an act of war. The horrible bombings near the finish line of this year's Boston Marathon were committed by radical Islamic jihadists. Three people were killed and 173 others were injured, several in serious condition. Latest word out of Washington, D.C. is that Terrorist #2 has now lawyered up after being read his Miranda Rights and given legal counsel at our expense. What- ever information provided from him during the first 48 hours in custody will be the last tidbits of information he will be offering. As I listened and watched a press briefing by Jay Carney, the president's mouthpiece, I wanted to scream at the TV screen. The Obama Administration has now said Terrorist #2 will be put on trial as a civilian in a federal court because as Carney stated, America doesn't try U.S. citizens as enemy combatants. He now will be treated as a common criminal, but what happened on April 15 th in Boston and again during an April 18 th firefight in Cambridge was not a convenience store rob- bery gone bad, it was an act of war by "holy warriors" who consider themselves at war with western values. Radical Islamic jihadists should be tried as enemy sol- diers regardless of their citizenship status. To do any- thing other is to spit on the bodies of all the victims at the Boston Marathon as they laid helplessly on the street on April 15 th. Most Americans are still awaiting justice down at Ft. Hood in Texas as that shooting is still classified as "workplace violence" rather than an act of terror that it clearly showed itself to be. Meanwhile, the alleged killer down there gets three squares a day, cable TV, the (Continued on Page 12) BOSTON WARD 1 REPUBLICAN COMMITTEE EAST BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS The East Boston Republican Committee met on April 14% 2013 and voted to endorse Dan Winslow in the Republican primary election for the United States Senate. The committee endorses Dan Winslow because it feels he best represents the ideals of the Republican Party and would represent the Commonwealth of Massachusetts most effectively in the United States Senate. The Committee members favor his positions on the national debt, jobs, the economy and taxes as well as recognize his many years of experience in government. The primary election is scheduled for Tuesday, April 30 , 2013. The general election to fill the open Senate seat is scheduled for Tuesday, June 25% 2013. The Senate term to be filled in the upcoming June 25 th election lasts through 2014. Citizens will vote again to fill this Senate seat in November 2014. The East Boston Republican Ward Committee may be contacted at EBRWC@yahoo.com. VOTE APRIL 30 TH by Sal Giarratani REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES GABRIEL MICHAEL DANIEL GOMEZ SULLIVAN WINSLOW Next Tuesday, April 30 th is the State Primary Election Day in Massachusetts. On the ballot statewide for the Democrats are U.S. Reps Ed Markey, D-Malden and Stephen Lynch D-South Boston. On the Republican side are Gabriel Gomez, Dan Winslow and Michael Sullivan. The winners of both primaries will face off on the June 25 elections. At the moment most of the action is in the Democratic Party where both Markey and Lynch are locked into a tough race. Markey is the choice of the Democrat party leaders both here and in Washington, while Lynch is running as the underdog a role he has been quite suc- cessful in over his career. Many in the GOP see former U.S. Attor- ney Michael Sullivan as the front runner, but both Gomez and Winslow are working hard to win this primary. -- DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES -- /m ED STEPHEN MARKEY LYNCH The winner in June will go on to finish out former U.S Senator John F. Kerry's unexpired term which ends at the end of 2014. Who will then turn out to vote is a big question. This race is barely on the radar that's to the 2013 mayoral race underway. What will be the voter turnout remains a big mystery. A slow and low turnout helps who? Many political watchers think only about 45 percent of registered voters will make it to the polls for this primary election, I think the number could even be lower, perhaps only 37 percent. Don't sit out this Primary Election, vote on Tuesday, April 30 th it is your duty and obligation. Remember how many have died to protect this right so many of us treat so lightly. Vote! NORTH END FEAST SOCIETIES Hold Vigil in Honor of Marathon Victims by Matt Conti The solemn look on vigilers faces says it all about the feelings felt here in the North End in the aftermath of the Marathon bombings. The North End Societies, known worldwide for the fa- mous summer feasts and religious processions, joined together on Sunday, April 21 "t for a solemn walk and vigil in remembrance and prayer for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings and its aftermath. The candlelight vigil, sing-a-long and procession started on Endicott Street at the St. Anthony's Club with hun- dreds from the community taking part in the ceremony that concluded on the Prado, also known as the Paul Re- vere Mall, on Hanover Street. Long representing the free- dom we celebrate on Patriots' Day, the famous Cyrus Dallin equestrian statue of the North End's most famous resident, Paul Revere, was surrounded by 181 candles, each representing one of the Boston Marathon victims that died or were injured in the tragedy of April 15, 2013. Especially emotional were prayers for one of our own, North Ender Roseann Sdoia, who lost a leg in the bombings. A "North End Strong" poster was signed (Photos by Rosario by everyone and will be sent to Roseann during her recovery. The North End Societies include: Santa Maria Di Anzano Society, Madonna delle Grazie Society, St. Rocco Society, St. Joseph's Society, St. Agrippina di Mineo Society, Madonna Della Cava Society, Madonna Del Soccorso di Sciacca So- ciety (Fisherman's Feast), St. Anthony's Society, St. Lucy's Society and Santa Rosalia di Palermo Society. Leaders of the North End Societies and local officials in attendance focused on the strength of the City of Bos- ton and the neighborhood. They offered prayers for the victims and thanked our law enforcement officers for their admirable work. Most of all, those at the vigil wanted to spread the word that the "North End Remembers" and is "Boston Strong."
