Produced in celebration of the 75 th Anniversary of the publication of 'The Great Gatsby,' this fascinating pro- gram explores the turbu- lent life and dark creative spirit of its writer, F.

Gatsby is a fascinating portrait of this most enduring American icon. FRINGE: THE COMPLETE FIFTH & FINAL SEASON (DVD) Warner Bros. Home Ent. The year is 2036.

The time has come, the walrus said, TO TALK OF MANY THINGS of shoes and ships and sealing wax of cabbages and kings by Sal Giarratani "THE MANIPULATED PRESS" This was the headline on a Bay State Banner editorial on May 23 rd defending the president against an on- slaught of truthfully telling. The president is sinking in a quagmire of his own mak- ing and yet liberals in Wash- ington and here locally con- tinue to defend the defense- less. The targeting of con- servative groups by the I.R.S., the spying on main- stream news media outlets and the obvious cover-up of Benghazi are all major sto- ries that need to be quickly addressed by this presiden- tial administration. But all we get are nic'e sounding sound bites, is there any other kind? And when more is needed, less is obtained as in taking the Fifth before Congress. The Banner does the usual kiss up to Obama lip service. Don't look at the facts, just throw out the R card and blame everything on Repub- licans and racists. Better to do that than actually look like a real newspaper. Eh? CONNOLLY OPENS CHARLESTOWN OFFICE Recently, some 50 volun- teers gathered at 295 Main Street to officially open up the campaign office in Char- lestown for John Connolly's mayoral run.

BOBBY MEANEY CAPPUCCI IS BACK Retired BPD Officer Robert Cappucci gathered enough signatures to make the Sep- tember mayoral preliminary ballot. Bobby has lived his entire life in Eastie and before becoming a police officer, he served two terms on the elected Boston School Committee until 1991 when that body was turned into a mayoral appointed board. His father served as a state rep from 1936 to 1948. "I always wanted a political career and it was cut short when they abolished the School Committee," said Cappucci, Back in the 1980s, I was bumping into Bobby all the time as he ran several times for public office until he won a school committee seat for District 1 in 1987. Back then, I remember bumping into him when he was run- ning for city council from District 1 when I was cam- paigning for school commit- teeman in District 1. We both kept meeting at bingo halls in East Boston and those bingo players all loved Bobby. Me, I had to tell them I was an Italian guy from Charlestown. According to news reports, he had 72 volunteers fan- ning out across the city who helped gather 4,424 signa- tures. He said the volunteers "did a heck of a job." That sounded just like Cappucci of old to me. It has been too long since I've seen Cappucci's name on the bal- lot. Good luck, Bobby! An- other great Gaelic-Garlic Guy. KOUTOUJIAN WILL RUN FOR HOUSE SEAT IF MARKEY WINS Middlesex Sheriff Peter Koutoujian will run to succeed U.S. Rep. Eddie Markey if he defeats Repub - lican Gabriel Gomez in the special June 25 th U.S. Sen- ate race. Koutoujian was appointed sheriff in 2011 after serving 14 years as a state representative. He said, "This is the right deci- sion for me. This is some- thing that I've looked at in the past. It is something about which I feel very strongly and I think I can bring over 20 years of expe- rience as a prosecutor, state representative and sheriff." I have been friends with Peter for a few years now and I think his views are in line with what the people who live in 5 th District are looking for in their voice on Capitol Hill. • MassDO'r (Continued from Page I) MassDOT is encouraging motorists to join E-ZPass in advance of the transition and making it easier than ever for new custom- ers to join E-ZPass.
