Page 12 POST-GAZE'FTE, MAY 22, 2015 "B Ray 15arron's 11 O'CLOCK NEWS This day, May 22, 1972, President Richard Nixon became the First U.S. president to visit the USSR; he discussed arms limitations with Soviet President Brezhnev. Huh? Capitol Police officers assigned to guard congressional leaders have left loaded Glock handguns in bathrooms at least twice in recent months, including one left in a toi- let stall and another found by an eight-year- old boy. Capitol Police are investigating, and House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions called on police supervisors to "re- train everyone who carries a gun." Good idea. A convicted killer who escaped prison in 1959 was arrested in Florida. When cops :'howed him an old photo of himself, Frank Freshwaters, now 79, said, "I haven't seen that guy in a long time," and then added, "You've got me." It's true! A 91-year-old Canadian woman was issued a $122 ticket because of com- plaints from a downstairs neighbor who said her rocking chair was too noisy. Answering nature's call, after a city coun- cilman in Georgetown, Texas, forgot to turn off his microphone during a bathroom break. Mayor Rachael Jonrowe struggled to stifle her laughter as the chamber room filled with the telltale sounds. Moron! A. Florida man was arrested for try- ing to cash a $368 billion check. Jeff Waters says he bought the check for $100 from a man named Tito. "Blame Tito," Waters told police. "I'm as innocent as a schoolgirl." For the record, the brilliant Kyle Waters of Swampscott says he isn't related to Jeff Waters. News from Northampton, Mass. Historic policy change: Smith College will admit transgender women for the first time in the all-female school's history, college officials announced last week. Trans students who were born male, but identify as female can apply to study at the historic college from this fall onward, said Smith President Kathleen McCartney. Under the new standards, stu- dents who were born female, but identify as male cannot attend Smith. Gee, the media did a great job in reporting Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, gave birth to Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte Eliza- beth Diana of Cambridge. The name is a trib- ute to Prince William's father, Prince Charles; his grandmother Queen Elizabeth; and his late mother, Princess Diana; as well as to Kate's sister, Pippa Middleton, whose middle name is Charlotte. British bookies paid more than $2.5 million to those who correctly picked the baby's name. "It is a big payout" said a spokesman for bookmaker William Hill, "but we have dodged a bullet, because ff it had been Alice, Elizabeth, or Victoria, we would have paid out even more." To think, organized crime is estimated to account for 10 percent of the United States' national income. News from Reggio Calabria, Italy. Italian-led rescue crews saved some 7,000 migrants from sinking boats in the Mediterranean, as Italian authorities scrambled to find places to house them all. Shelters in Sicily and in port cities like Reggio Calabria, in the toe of Italy, are already overflowing, but northern Italian politicians oppose to taking in any refugees. Many of the migrants, mostly from Africa and Middle Eastern countries, intend to claim asylum and join relatives elsewhere in Europe."Italy needs help," said Rev. Anto- nio Pangallo of the charity Caritas. "Emigra- tion is a phenomenon Italy can't face alone." Some interesting gossip. Rosie O'Donnell's fierce custody battle with estranged wife Michelle Rounds over their two-year-old daughter took an ugly turn after Rounds ac- cused the comedian of substance issues and asked her to gubmit to drug and alcohol test- ing, says TMZ.com. Rounds, 43, who is seek- ing sole custody of adopted daughter Dakota, claims that O'Donnell drinks a bottle of wine nearly every night, regularly smokes weed, and farms all her kids out to nannies. "What's best is for Dakota to be with me," Rounds said. O'Donnell, 53, denies the allegations, and her representative said Rounds is lying to extort more money out of her. O'Donnell, who has four other children, filed for divorce from Rounds in February, after almost three years O O O of marriage.  It will be O'Donnell's second divorce. Some traling tips/Airports: If a porter helps get your luggage to check-in, give $5 for the First bag and $3 to $5 for each of the rest. Thanks to The Pilot we learned the state with the highest percentage of Catholics is Rhode Island, with 42 percent. Other states on the high end include: Massachusetts. New Jersey, and New Mexico, each with 34 percent, and Connecticut, with 33 percent. These states each have 25 percent Catho- lics or more: California, Illinois, Louisiana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota and Wisconsin. On the low end, Mis- sissippi has the fewest Catholics, at 4 per- cent, Utah has 5 percent and West Virginia has 6 percent. Each of these has fewer than 10 percent Catholics: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, North Carolina and Oklahoma. The largest number of Catholics are still in the 30-49 age range. It has been said, a man may attend church services regularly, but this does not neces- sarily mean he attends religiously. Steven's attractive and brilliant wife Theresa, says, "Religion doesn't fail. It's the people who fail religion." Be aware, the great Steven Sebestyen is a graduate of Stonehfll College and his degrees are Bachelor of Science, Business Manage- ment, Cum Laude. Questions people ask: Where was Howie Carr of the Boston Herald born. The great Howie was born in Portland, Maine on Janu- ary 17, 1952. He was raised in Portland and Deerfield, Massachusetts.

In 1933, Fiorello La Guardia be- comes the first Italian-American elected mayor of New York City. The colorful "Little Flower" is squatty, funny and often confused with comedian Lou Costello. However, La Guardia is honest, courageous, tough, and called "New York's greatest mayor." The long, wooly beards now in fashion among young hipsters and baseball players may contain an alarming amount of the same bacteria found in human feces, a new study has found. Show biz stuff in cooperation with the stately musicologist Albert Natale. Accord- ing to Roger Vadim, "My mother liked Brigitte Bardot very much, but she always said, I feel sorry for her ... She'll never learn to grow up. I think she'll always be a child. To be happy you must know how to love. She has a pas- sion for love, but doesn't know how to love." Ready for this? Laurence Olivier says, "I married three actresses. All the world's a stage, and that includes the bedroom." He was married to Jill Esmond, Vivien Leigh and Joan Plowright,, And Tony Randall had this to say about Marilyn Monroe. "Monroe! I never could understand what it was all about. She was absolutely talentless. To work with her was agony. In the first place, she was never there. You'd wait; five o'clock at night she'd show up on the set." Useless information: Long ago, the people of Nicaragua believed that if they threw beau- tiful young women into a volcano it would stop erupting. Influenza caused more than twenty million deaths in 1918. Neckties were first worn in Croatia. That's why they were called cravats (cro-vats). Huh? Most toilets flush in E fiat. And the first toilet ever seen on television was on Leave it to Beaver. It was in 1825, the first toilet was installed in the White House. Reminder, forty thousand Americans are injured by toilets every year. And Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was the first American to have plumbing installed in his house in 1840. North Americans spend almost $18 billion on footwear a year. Remember, the bra Marilyn Monroe wore in the movie Some Like it Hot sold for $14.000. AMERICA IS A BEAUTIFUL ITALIAN NAME Recipes from the Homeland by Vita Orlando Sinopoli COPYRIGHT, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED SICILIAN GREEN OLIVE SALAD 1 jar Sicilian green olives* 2 tablespoons olive, canola, or 2 stalks celery chopped vegetable oil 1 large onion chopped 2 tablespoons cider vinegar I large garlic clove minced Salt I tablespoon oregano *Sicilian green olives are not usually found pitted. To pit olives, use a paring knife to cut olive meat from olive pit., Another method is to place each olive, one by one, on a cutting board. Using a wooden mallet, hit the olive so that the meat separates and exposes the olive pit. Place olive meat in a large bowl. Add chopped celery, onion and minced garlic to the olives and mix. Sprinkle oregano, oil and cider vinegar over the mixture and mix thoroughly. Additional oregano, oil, vin- egar or salt may be added. When kept in a clean covered jar or bowl this salad stores well for a lengthy time in refrig- erator. This salad is ready for serving within thirty min- utes of preparation. NOTE: In my childhood, I remember my father buying a large wooden box of shiny light green olives from the produce mar- ket. The large quantity was to be shared with aunts who lived nearby. The women knew how much water and salt were needed to soak the olives and how long before they could be ready for this special Sicilian salad. In 1931, when my parents took the family to Sicily to meet our paternal grandmother, my brother Peter and I had the privi- lege of going to the olive groves with our relatives to harvest olives. As a six-year-old, I thought of it as a picnic day under the beautiful but old craggy-looking olive trees. We ate lunch and stayed most of the day before returning in the horse-drawn carts. Another day, Papa and his brother-in-law, Uncle Nino, took us to a processing plant near their hometown. There we saw olives that had been crushed, processed and stored in huge containers. The scent of olive oil was so strong in that small, cold processing plant that it made my eyes tear. I wanted to rush out into the fresh air. My love for the green olives and the olive oil extracted from them grew from that experience.
