Page14 POST-GAZETTE, MAY 1 O, 2013 Barrique (Continued from Page 9) (Photo by Rosario Scabin, Ross Photography) history San Patrignano has supported over 20,000 people. The community offers a home, medical attention, education and vocational training courses for 1,300 residents. The main goal is to regain sobriety, rebuild self-esteem and establish- ing a sense of accountabil- ity that will prepare them to be reintegrated into soci- ety." She continues by say- ing, "San Patrignano also alleviates the country's spending by reducing annual costs incurred by traditional rehab facilities and penal is- sues by offering alternative solutions. This act of social enterprise saved the Italian State and public nearly 33 million Euro last year and is a very clear example of how social action and responsi- bility can make atangible contribution to the country's national welfare system." ABOUT SAN PATRIGNANO Since 1978, San Patrig- nano has taken in over 20,000 people with drug abuse problems, offering them a home, healthcare, legal assistance and the op- portunity to study, learn a job, change their lives and regain their status as full members of society. The fa- cility welcomes all young men and women who have serious drug abuse prob- lems, regardless of ideology, social background or reli- gion and completely free of charge, accepting no pay- ment or funding from their families or the government. San Patrignano's rehabili- tation program has a success rate of 72%, mea- sured by a study conducted by the University of Bologna who monitored resident guests up to five years after reintegration into society. www.sanpatrignano.org ABOUT BARRIQUE -- THE THIRD LIFE OF WOOD "Barrique: The Third Life of Wood" was conceived by San Patrignano and famous Ital- ian wood designer Maurizio Riva after Riva visited the community in 2012. He had the idea to repurpose the barriques, keeping them from dumping grounds, to create one-of-a-kind pieces of art that would also edu- cate and empower the San Patrignano residents while invigorating a dwindling craft. The power of this ini- tiative inspired more than 30 of the world's best design- ers and architects to dedi- cate their time and unique designs, providing additional encouragement to the mem- bers of San Patrignano. _ San .Patgnano_ has _est.a.b _ lished long-standing rela- tionships with international companies that have helped support their mission and goals. Sponsors for "Barrique: The Third Life of Wood" include Friends of San Patrignano, Foundation for Italian Art & Culture, ICE, Italy-America Chamber of Commerce, Mediterranean Shipping Company, Fonda- zione Bracco, Intesa San- paolo, Poltrona Frau and SCM Group. "Barrique: The Third Life of Wood" is proud to be part of the official 2013 program for the Year of Italian Culture in the United States that cel- ebrates Italian excellence, culture, industry, artisan- ship and identity, organized and promoted under the Patronage of the Italian Min- istry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Italy in Wash- ington D.C.

All the talking heads over at MSNBC must have drank the same purple drink out of the water cooler because they were all blab- bing nonsense. It would seem clear that the facts are lead- ing law enforcement to con- clude that the older brother Suspect #I was definitely a radical Islamist who turned the Boston Marathon along with his younger brother into the newest chapter of global jihadist. However, over at MSNBC they were all doing their best to avoid the truth. They were making excuses that these two brothers had become Americanized and it was unfair to say that they were simply radical Islamists. This cable crowd added that Islam was just one of many things that may have influ- enced their lives. Maybe they liked Ben Affleck's mov- ies and Mozart too. Does any- one really think listening to Mozart creates a bomber? Would seeing "The Town" too many times turn both of them into thugs too? There are none so blind as those who will not see. Gun Bill Dies in Senate Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid seemed upset recently when the Senate couldn't pass a gun back- ground check bill, one that most people assumed wotild pass. Many senators are now trying to create a w0i-kable compromise on strengthen- ing background checks on gun purchases. The Senate blocked a compromise that would have expanded back- ground checks to gun shows and Internet sales, but left an exception for private sales. It passed 54-46 but 60 votes were needed to avoid a filibuster. U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Virginia accused the N.R.A. of lying about his compromise bill. However, U.S. Senator John Cornyn, R-Texas called background checks "symbolism over solutions." He also added, "It is absolutely false to say it comes down to politics.

NYC Proposes Raising Age to 21 to Buy Cigarettes No one in New York City would be able to buy a pack of cigarettes under a pro- posal unveiled recently. City Council President Christine Quinn, who is currently running for mayor unveiled the plan. According to her supporters, most smokers start smoking before 21. Of course, Mayor Michael Bloomberg fresh from his defeat in court to ban super- sized soda drinks is all for this new restriction on New Yorkers too. In Massachu- setts under federal law, no one under 18 can purchase cigarettes except in Need- ham where the age limit is 21. Ironically, down in Texas the legislature floated the 21 age limit idea but put it on hold after finding out it would cost the state more than $42 million in cigarette tax rev- enue over a two year period. The flip side though, in New York City, under 21 year olds can still gel cigarettes pretty easily by taking a bridge over into New Jersey or a nice ride to Long Island. Here in Needham, younger smokers can take a short ride across the town border where 18 year olds can legally purchase cigarettes. Another feel good measure and another waste of time. Feel Like a Boston Texan As a conservative Demo- crat, I always feel at home down in Texas where even its version of liberals still seems more conservative than our own liberals up here in the Bay State. Texas has two great voices up on Capitol Hill, with U.S. Sena- tors John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, two great conservative voices.
