(Photos by Jeanne Brady) by ~l Giarratcmi L Millennials Catch Up with Baby Boomers A new analysis of census data shows that millennials !:: are now tied with baby boomers for the largdst share of eligible voters. The Pew Research Center says boomers = hold a very slight edge, but each group comprises about = 31 percent of the electorate. But Pew also shows that . only 46 percent of millennials actually vote, while 69 ~: percent of boomers vote. ~: My daughter is a millennial, I ama boomer. My daughter votes and I vote. Actual voters vote because of the example given to them as children. I am not surprised my daughter votes. I would be disappointed if she didn't. In my own family, voting was a duty. It should be for everyone, but sadly it isn't. VA Wrongly Classij ed 4,200 Dead? U.S. Rep David Jolly, R-Florida, said the Veteran~ Administration cut off benefits to more than 4,200 foils nationwide after declaring them dead.

Last year's event brought out 9,000 runners. This year, the 12th Annual Run to Remember saw an equal number of runners. This annual run began as a way to honor all first responders who have been killed in the line of duty by celebrating their lives and by giving back to community. All proceeds of this annual run benefit community and kids' programs of the Boston Police Runners Club. I caught up with several of the runners after they had returned to East Boston for some relaxation at the Maverick Marketplace Cafe. They all had completed the 5-Mile Run and when I told them I was a retired police officer, they replied they ran to honor me and all first responders, living and deceased. Shown in photo are JoAnne Lyons and Dick Lyons of Reading and in the middle of the group were Justina Lyons, Courtney Macaruso and Eleni Dixon, all of East Boston.
