BOSTON POST,GA-ZE'TTE, JUNE 1,2012 Page 11 News Briefs (Continued by Barack Obama's book publicist who wrote in a 1991 bio of the future president that he was born in Kenya. Lots of birthers jumped all over this story but for all the wrong reasons. I personally believe Obama was born in the United States of America but I also think he liked be- ing mentioned in that publi- cist little book as a native of Kenya. As Michael Graham said on the day this story broke, "the president may have only been trying to sell copies of his first book back when he was the president of the Harvard Law School Review. I think he thought it would advance his career as a noted author." Of course, now Obama's people are saying it was just an oversight by the pub- licist over 20 years ago. I'm not buying that theory at all. I think perhaps he was using his race card to advance his career wher- ever it went. Of course, he didn't know back in 1991 he would someday be in the White House where be- ing born in Kenya is a major snafu. What About the Warren Question? The Massachusetts Demo- cratic Party is caught be- tween a rock and a hard place with its complete back- ing of Elizabeth Warren, bet- ter known to most of us as the alleged fake Indian run- ning for the U.S. Senate. As the state party convention is just around the corner, party bigwigs appear stuck with her for the whole ride and it could be a ride like that which took place two years ago by Martha Coakley. This Cherokee fable of hers appears to be not going away anytime soon and the Warren people have as of LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MI12P2315EA Estate of ELIZABETH A CLARK a/Ida BETTY CLARK, ELIZABETH CLARK Date of Death May 10, 2012 CITATION ON PETITION FOR FORMAL ADJUDICATION To all interested persons: A Petition has been filed by Kathleen Mahoney of Wobum MA requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order of testacy and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

You have the right to obtain a copy of the Petition from the Petitioner or at the Court. You have a right to object to this proceeding. To do so, you or your attorney must file a written appearance and objection at this Court before 10:00 a.m. on June 19, 2012.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 6/1/12 from Page 1) yet made little attempt to do anything but blame Scott Brown, the Republicans, con- servative talk radio and the Boston Herald for creating a fake issue, almost as fake as one of her recipes in "Pow Wow Chow" that called for mayo and crabmeat. Good news out there for Democrats upset with all these perceived phoniness of Princess Busted Tale is that there is another Democrat still running against her and hoping to get on the primary ballot for U.S. Senate in the name of Marisa DiFranco who says, "We need a Demo- cratic nominee who can define herself and not be defined by Scott Brown and the GOP machine." Democrat Party chairman John Walsh has really no choice but to stick with the fake Cherokee because it is too late for somebody new to jump into this fray. We can only hope that primary Democratic voters if given a choice will send Warren back to her teepee at Harvard University. Did Biden Pre-empt Obama on Purpose? When Vice President Joe Biden recently came out to the public as having "evolved" on the issue of gay marriage, did he purposefully do it to beat Obama to the punch and forcing Obama's hand? Some conservatives think so. Me, I'm not that sure that Biden is that smart. Whatever reason Biden had, it did flush out Obama to take his public stance as well. Rumor has it that Biden and his folks were fearful that Obama may try to replace Biden with a new running mate and that Biden had to do some- thing to make sure it didn't happen. Speaking of Liberal Bias? What About Catholic Colleges? Georgetown University's recent invitation to U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, to deliver this year's com- mencement speech is an inappropriate choice for this Jesuit University. Why do Catholic institutions of higher learning select many times prominent Catholics who in their public life in- sult, mock or belittle Catho- lic values? It has happened before and will happen again and you don't have to be psy- chic medium John Edward to know that liberal bias seems everywhere.

It is noteworthy that none of the 20 th century's monsters -- Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, Mao -- were preoccu- pied with material gain. They loved power much more than money. And that is why the left is much more frightening than the right. It craves power." - Dennis Prager, conservative columnist Next Time Don't Abuse Snakes When a customer at a Wal-Mart in Washington state reached down to move what he thought was a stick in a container of mulch, he sank his hand into the snake's fangs. The guy ended up at the emergency room and Wal-Mart apologized for the snake bite. However, be- fore leaving in the ambu- lance he "did a tap dance on it (the snake) until it was dead." I hope PETA doesn't print up wanted posters on the guy who killed the snake. Is Hillary Still Thinking President? I heard talk that last year Bill Clinton was thinking his wife should challenge Obama in this year's primaries but she decided against it. Seems there's no real love lost better Obama and Bubba in private. Remember that old song about smiling faces sometimes they lie and don't tell the truth? Another rumor is about Biden being dumped for Hillary this year. Final rumor floating around, if Obama gets beaten by Mitt Romney later this year, would Hillary get her last chance to run for president in 2016? Uncle Omar is Back on the Road Behind the Wheel President Obama's illegal alien Uncle Omar is once again behind the wheel legally able to drive in this state and wherever else he wishes to go. Lawmakers are very upset by it all. Why did RMV officials hand him a license on May 15 when he showed up to get one despite having been illegally in this country for 20 years? Worcester County Sheriff Lewis Evangelidis said, "It defied common sense. I can't comprehend how the president's uncle can have his license reinstated while we're all qu'te aware of his immigration status." Rep. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) has asked the Registry to explain its actions in this case. Why isn't legal resi- dency in this country a requirement? The RMV says it has no choice by state law if he had a valid Social Security number. However, is that number really a valid one if he is in this country illegally? Where is the com- mon sense in it all?" EXTRA Innings ' "' I by Sal Giarratani ' Two Former Sox Hurlers Still Hurling On May 16, Jamie Moyer handcuffed the Diamond- backs by pitching into the seventh inning, walking two and striking out five. His record is now 2-3 with a 4.20 ERA which is not bad for a guy who is 49 years old. Meanwhile, the day prior to Moyer's win, Derek Lowe who plays for the Cleveland Indians won his sixth game of the season. His record is right now an Impressive 6-1 with a 2.05 ERA. When his sinker is sinking, he is Cy Young and thus far this sea- son, his sinker ball is sink- ing quite nicely for him. Kevin Hickey Pitcher and Coach Passes Away Kevin Hickey who pitched for six seasons with the Chicago White Sox and Bal- timore Orioles before be- coming a coach with Chi- cago has died at 56 years old. A native of Chicago, he had been a pregame instructor for the White Sox since 2004. As a left-handed pitcher, he played with Chicago from 1981-83 and in Baltimore from 1989-91, compiling a 9-14 record, with 17 saves with a 3.91 ERA. He never played baseball in high school but after playing in 16 inch softball and semipro baseball, he was signed by Chicago after a tryout at Comiskey Park. And Now Batting Third for the Tornados is ... Jose Canseco is now a 47 year old slugger a long time removed from his heyday in Oakland partnering up with Mark McGwire. He is now a member of the Worcester Tornados in the Can-Am League. Last night (May 21) his team beat the Quebec Capitales 5-3 in Worcester's Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field. He hit 462 home runs in the major leagues mostly during the steroid era which brought him both fame and notoriety. Canceso says he has "a real bad addiction to baseball" and this season there's no more big money. He signed a two- year deal worth in the vicin- ity of $1,000-$2,000 per month. His addiction to base- ball has even led him to play- ing softball in some men's leagues. Canceso earned more than $45 million in his big league career including those two years at Fenway with the Red Sox back in 1995 and 1996. In 1988 he was the AL MVP hitting 42 home runs and knocking in 124 RBIs for the Oakland Athletics. By the way, he was rejected this year by the Mexican League for refusing to submit to a drug test which is why he is known for as many wrong reasons as right ones. Personally, I always liked him and his personality. He seemed to enjoy playing baseball. It is still difficult to dislike him to this day. However, I prob- ably won't be driving to Worcester to see him play: Four Homers, One Inning On May 21, 1957 the Bos- ton Red Sox hit four home runs in the sixth inning of an 11-0 win over the Cleve- land Indians. Gene Mauch (who went on to be a great NL manager), Ted Williams (who could forget him?), Dick Gernert (I forgot him) and great third baseman Frank Malzone all connected off of the first 16 pitches thrown by Cal McLish (obviously not a good game for him). Moyer Makes More History The Rockies' Jamie Moyer lost to the Miami Marlins on May 21 bringing his record thus far this season to 2-4 with a 4.99 ERA. However, when he walked out to the mound in Miami, he was playing his 50 th baseball park. This seems to be an all-time record never to be broken by any pitcher in the history of this game.
