GLYNN CEO AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 6/5/2015 Read a Book, Help the Jimmy Fund I just heard about this new baseball novel by Roland Hopkins, All profits from the book sales will be donated, to the Jimmy Fund. It is a great whodunnit with a back- ground of the 1946 pennant- winning Red Sox, murder, mayhem and plenty of mys- tery. Joe Castiglione says, "I really enjoyed (Hop-kins) book, quite an entertaining and complex book. For more information, call 781-878- 4540 x215. Screaming at the Ump Recently while working as a sub in a middle school, I accidentally came upon a great little baseball bo6k good for middle school kids who like" both baseball and reading. The book is called "Screaming at the Ump" by Audrey Vernick. and as Gary D. Schmidt says, "You'll read this in the time it takes to play a double-header." It came out last year published by Clarion Books. EXTRA Innings by Sal Giarratani Baseball Coach Happy These Days Jhonneris Mendez from Dorchester is a graduate of Suffolk University. He is also assistant coach at Northern Essex Community College. On May 7 th, he became a U.S. citizen at Faneuil Hall, a longtime dream for this young man. Mendez arrived in America at age two from the Domini- can Republic. He and his mother started off in New York before arriving in Boston. Heis also a Bos- ton English High School graduate. West Roxbury Wins Title On May 25 h, the West Roxbury Raiders defeated Latin Academy 2-1 to cap- ture the Boston City League Championship at the Boston English baseball field in Ja- maica Plain. West Roxbury went 14-6' this season. Congrats. Bartolo Colon Still Winning Pitcher Bartolo Colon has been a Major League pitcher for 18 seasons and it seems the older he gets, the better he gets like fine wine. There have been ongoing allegations that he used some banned juice along the way. Nothing ever proven one way Or the other. On May 31 st, he pitched seven in- nings in a 4-3 win over the Marlins. He is now 8-3 on the season. Colon also helped himself at the plate getting an RBI double in the second inning. His ERA is 4-some- thing, but at his age, even that is great. Meanwhile, Red Sox Flounder Quincy is often called the Flounder Capital of New England, but right now the biggest flounders around are found inside Fenway Park as the Red Sox continue to struggle in the early part of this season and things are not looking good.. If they aren't .500 by .the All-Star break, they could be cooked for the 2015 season. News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) ing the value of work and be- ing able to save your own money instead of borrowing it from mommy and daddy. When I hear liberal pols talk about folks deserving $15 an hour, I wonder what's goin' on, too, like Marvin Gaye. Hamburg flippers who make that much an hour will en- sure at-least two things, a very expensive burger to pur- chase and fewer workers behind the counter. How does that benefit anyone? What we need to do is cre- ate real jobs that require real skills and training. Give people jobs with futures so that they can become pro- ductive folks as opposed to the entitlement crowd that demands everything from everyone else. I listen to Bernie Sanders and I won- der what planet he comes from with his foolish ideas that won't help anyone in the long run. And people are out there cheering him on. Out in Los Angeles, the city council recently voted to raise the minimum wage to fifteen bucks an hour, but what the councilors forget are the un-intended conse- quences of their action. Many workers will no longer qualify for Medicaid. They may get lifted up into the middle class and get health insurance, but all in all things will just get worse for them. This whole scam is about liberals fighting the evil of income inequality, and rais- ing the minimum wage to fight this evil is as phony as a three dollar bill. Is Liz Warren a Flipper Fan? While listening to Jeff Kuhner one morning last week, he was bashing U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren for being a reported house flip- per. It was the first time I could remember hearing about this. I thought Warren railed against the rich, who get richer off the backs of working and middle class America. According to Kuhner and the media sources he was reporting on, Liz likes to flip and then and make great profits just like those she attacks in speeches. Liberals appar- ently are never afraid of be- ing called hypocrites. Or look- ing like a hypocrite either. We are Losing the Middle Class It is hardly morning in America for most of us. Those at the top are feeling little, if any, pain and those at the bottom, well, they just wait for their next entitle- ment to arrive..Meanwhile the rest of us sit and watch it all. I saw a great real estate advertisement in the NY Post recently. There was a mansion for sale near Cen- tral Park. It is on East 81 st Street and it comes with 10 bedrooms, 10 baths and 7 half baths. Sounds like a re- ally clean house. The price is only $59,000,000. What a steal for the One Percent crowd out there. Of course, if that price is too steep, there's a smaller place on Greene Street, a loft with three bedrooms and three baths for only $6,750,000. As a member of the shrinking middle class, life hasn't been that great. The top tier grows, the bottom also grows and the middle class gets squeezed like an orange in the morning. Thanks to the Democrats, America is no longer the country most of us were born into. The older I get, the more I see my America dis- appearing in front of my eyes. How Many More, Mistah Speakah Will Announce Every time I turn around another Republican has come out and announced their intentions of running for president next year. As I look them all over, I am re- minded of looking at a bag of potatoes. Who do I like? Ac- seem to have negatives, even those I kind of like. Jef Kuhner likes Ted Cruz. He's okay, but I am not see- ing him gett.ing the nomina- tion. Marco Rubio? Not that much. Ben Carson? How long can he run on that one speech of his at the National Prayer Breakfast last year? He is going nowhere and nowhei-e fast. I like Rand Paul, but lately he is sounding like his fa- ther Ron Paul, whom I never liked. I won't vote for Bush 3, I am all bushed out. I do like Chris Christie even though many on conserva- tive talk radio can't abide by him. Finally, Mike Huckabee should have stayed on his Fox News weekend show. He reminds me of one. of those cable preachers who tell us to listen to God's word and send him money lots of it. The world is .coming to an end, send your money quickly. Too preachy for me and his recent attack on the U.S. Supreme Court shows even he doesn't understand our constitution and the separa- tion of powers in this consti- tutional republic of ours. Same goes for Carson on this issue, but I don't speak ill of the dead. Oh, I almost forgot Rick Santorium, he is a forget- table, candidate, isn't he?. Thank God, the 2012 guy dropped out early. Don't You Know Who I Am? Recently Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz of San Juan, P.R. wanted to take a cab from Manhattan to the Bronx, She had to switch cabs after he told her to get out because he didn't have a GPS on him. At least he didn't charge her any fare. He told her to get out be- cause he didn't know how to get to her hotel on East 149 th Street. Welcome to New York, WWW.
