BOSTON POST-GAZETTE,MAY 11,2012 Page15 Talk of Many Things (Continued from Page 10) MT. CARMEL CONTINUES TO MEET The Mt. Carmel group met again for Sunday services across from the church by the Padre Pio statue once again on April 29 and plan on holding Sunday services outside as long as weather permitting. On this most recent Sunday more than 40 folks showed up for the wor- ship service. THE LOONEY LEFT IN CONCORD, FALMOUTH AND RHODE ISLAND THINK THEY KNOW BETTER Did you hear the news from Concord, the looney left controlled a recent town meeting and passed a ban on plastic water bottles more than one liter. It is all about the environment, you know. Then, there's the Falmouth Board of Selectmen. The re- cent selectman chairing the meeting started the meet- ing off with a poem from Walt Whitman rather than the Pledge of Allegiance. When asked by another selectman about the Pledge, she told him "no thank you:" Finally, down in Woonsocket, RI, a bunch of atheists are all bent out of shape over a revered monument because of a cross that is placed atop it. Getting back to Concord. I guess from now on the streets of that historic town will be littered with broken glass and residents will have to travel all the way to pur- chase their 2-liter soda bottles or is the ban only on bottled water? I heard some Concordians are not just concerned about litter but they actually think water poured into plastic contain- ers turns into poison too. Soda drinks must be exempt from being going poisonous too.

The Dorchester Reporter is already skeptical of the idea on its editorial page. As someone who has worked in the field of mental health for almost 40 years, I have yet to see a sober house wel- comed anywhere without fight. Over in Charlestown there is a sober house work- ing quite well in Hayes Square. It is ironically squeezed in between a police station and a liquor store. Many of the residents of the sober house there come from the community and many of the residents of the Dorchester Lower Mills sober house will also be folks from the community. Often, people think sober means drunks in the neigh- borhood. They think house- breaks. They think trouble. These people looking for treatment are our friends, neighbors or family mem- bers. Both sides, those pro- posing these houses and the neighbors who will co-exist with them, need to come to an understanding. BIRTHDAY-4-KNIGHTS The Knights of Dunkin' Donuts celebrated four birthdays recently down at the Bennington Street shop in the Heights. The Knights were Sal Giarratani (May 4), Dina Dickerson (May 5), "Eddie" Moyer (May 5) and Jimmy Capezzuto (May 6). The party was held Sunday evening May 6 for the four- some. Gall Miller showed up with the birthday cake and Robio and Billy chipped in for the candles from Lanzilli's next door. By the way none other than Dickie DeNaro made an appearance at the birth- day bash. Everyone was glad Dickie had finally re- turned from his long Florida winter vacation. He was missed. Now, only Sam Malone is holding the fort down in Florida and he's get- ting ready to return as we speak.

DeCristofaro,-Register of Probate Run date: 5/11/12 Moose Skowron a NY Yankees Champ Passes Away Bill "Moose" Skowron, a five time World Series champion and one of only two players ever to hit three home runs in World Series Game 7, passed away at age 81 from congestive heart failure. During his tenure at first base for the Yankees, he helped the Yankees win four World Series between the late '50s and early '60s. His fifth World Series victory came in 1963 when he was traded to the LA Dodgers who beat the Yanks that October. Yogi Berra speaking of Skowron said, "There weren't many better guys than Moose. He was a dear friend and a great team man. A darn good ballplayer too." By the way, it is Berra who was the only other player to hit three Game 7 home runs. Skowron was considered a star first baseman and went on to ap- pear in eight All-Star games.

WITNESS, Hon. PETER C. DiGANGI, First Justice of this Court. Date: April 30, 2012 Tara E. DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 5/11/12 EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani sioner Bud Selig called him "an integral part of those wonderful Yankees teams of Mickey Mantle and Roger Marls." After his career ended, he returned to his Chicago roots and had worked for the White Sox since 1999 in community relations. White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf said, "While Moose may have been a star in New York with the Yankees, he was a Chicagoan through and through." Skowron was called a great story teller by many who ,knew him. Selig actually called him "an important link to a great era in base- ball history." Reinsdorf added, "l certainly miss his priceless stories about Casey Stengel, Roger Marls, Hank Bauer and of course, his good friend, Mickey Mantle. My guess is that right now. Mickey, Roger, Hank and Moose are enjoy- ing a good laugh together." I remember when the NY Yankees let Moose go over to the LA Dodgers in favor of a hot young prospect by the name of Joe Pepitone. I liked Showron, Pepitone not so much. By the way, I rooted for the Dodgers in 1963 World Series because I loved watching Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale and Moose Skowron play baseball like they all did. Back in my youth I can still recite the Yankees in- field, Moose at first, Bobby Richardson at second, Clete Boyer at third and Tony Kubek at short. Best infield in baseball at the time. Pepitone was good but not as good as Moose. Finally, here's some Fen- way history. Moose Skowron once hit a ball dead center to the deepest gap in center- field. It was right of the Green Monster and next to where the TV cameras were placed at the far left of the bleachers. Only one other player has ever reached that point in centerfield. They didn't call Skowron "Moose" for nothing.

WITNESS, HON. PETER C. DiGANGI, First Justice of this Court. Date: April 24, 2012 Tara E. DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 5/11/12 Teddy Baseball Barn in 1939 On April 20, 1939, in his first major league game, Ted Williams hit a 400-foot double in four at-bats as the Red Sox lost 2-0 to the NY Yankees at Yankee Stadium. In My Book Burst Was Best Lefty But ... Did you know that every time Jon Lester reaches a franchise milestone, the first person he thinks of is Bruce Hurst? Many fans be- lieve that along with the late Mel Parnell, these three pitchers represent the best left-handed pitchers in Red Sox history. Personally, I might add a young Babe Ruth when he pitched in Boston in his pre-Yankees days. Hurst considers Lester the best and says he's "hon- ored to be even close to the same breath." To me, he's the best Red Sox left-hander ever, with a chance to put himself way above anyone in the record books. I follow him ... I tell young players this is a guy you should not only watch but emulate. I have the highest regard for Jon Lester. To me, Lester is really good. I was a bit too young for Mel Parnell. How- ever, I remember Hurst high up on that mound. In nine seasons with the Sox, he was 88-73 with a 4.23 ERA. His prime was 1986-88, when he was 46-27 with a 3.76 ERA. In 1989, he signed as a free agent with the Padres which he now admits regrets. He won another 57 games with the Padres, Rockies and Rangers but wished he stayed put in Bos- ton. He and Roger Clemens were a great one-two act. Kristine Aristide Meets Up with Rico and the Spaceman Recently, Quincy resident Kristine Aristide was hon- ored by the John Hancock Company at the company's i 150 th Anniversary Celebra- ! tion for her work leading vol- unteer projects. She found herself congratulated by two Red Sox legends Rico Petrocelli and Bill Lee. Bobcats Worst JVBA Ever The Charlotte BoI: .s made NBA history this season. On April 26 in the season finale against the NY Knicks playing all their subs, the Bobcats finished their season with 23 straight loses but that wasn't history being made. The season record of 7-59 left them with a .106 winning percentage. The previous record was held for many years by the 1972- 73 Philadelphia Sixers who finished 9-73 and a .110 winning percentage.
