Superstar and R&B record- hag artist Usher was recently spotted there eating a shrimp scampi and sausage pizzal YUM ... Be on the look- outI Wounded Vet Motorcy- clist will roll through the streets of East Boston on Saturday, May 9th as part of "the 5th Annual Wounded Vet Ride." Each year Boston's Wounded Vet Run is dedi- cated to different veterans. This year the Vet Ride will help raise money for Army SSGT. Nicholas Lavery, Army SSG. Travis Mills, Army SSG.

Street construction is now in full force in every city and town causing traffic tie-upsI It's work that has to be done and can only be done in the good weather. So bear with it! ... The people in East Boston who are complaining there's not enough middle and low income housing evidently haven't looked into the amount of people getting gov- ernment subsidized hous- ing.

The untimely death of Freddie Gray is indeed un- fortunate. However, to rush to judgment before all the facts are in is as bad as the gang of rioters who use opportunities like Freddie Gray and Michael Brown to burn, loot and destroy a city. If these maggots were seri- ous over the death of Freddie Gray, they would peace- fully demonstrate with dig- nity (something vandals don't know how to do). Gray wasn't exactly a pillar of the church having been arrested more than once for drug dealing! State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby's announce- ment speech of the arrest of six police officers, three white and three black last Friday sounded seventy-five (75) percent political, and animated as she desperately tried to calm down angry mobs! ...
