GUEST EDITORIAL WE THE PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN "FIXING AMERICA" by Sal Giarratani Liberals down in the Ocean State can't stand former Mayor Steve Laffey of Cranston, RI he is a conservative Republican. In a recent phone interview with Tom Ward, publisher of the Valley Breeze in Rhode Island, Laffey was calling the last 12 years the "Bush-Obama dis- aster" and claimed "both parties are destroying the country." Liberals who view him as a Romney Republi- can couldn't be further from the truth. Laffey recently was in Rhode Island to premiere his new movie, "Fix- ing America." This project began a year ago at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. I haven't seen this 79-minute documentary but as Laffey is quick to point out, "This isn't a right wing, pro-America movie." The former Mayor sees a huge disconnect today between the people and government. "You are not alone," are the words that open the movie trailer at Most of us are willing to make sacrifices but we feel powerless thanks to the left wing media in this country assaulting our values that we cherish. Laffey says you can feel this helplessness. The ordinary folks seen in this movie are working class blue collar types and they sense we as a nation are heading toward some ice ahead. We fight wars we can't win and create deficits with too much spending. We want to see Capitol Hill take on the chal- lenges that need to be met and conquered but all we get is bickering from both Democrats and Republicans alike. We who love this country do not comprehend why our political leaders are so out of touch with our grow- ing long term debt, China, Iran, high price of gasoline and more. Back in 2010, Laffey said in five years Rhode Island would look like Detroit. Since then, Central Falls has gone into bankruptcy and Providence is hanging by a thread next to a financial cliff. The state suffers with a 10.8 percent unemployment rate. Providence is up to around 15 percent with few signs of dropping anytime soon. Tom Ward opined in a recent editorial, "Tea Partiers. Occupiers. We don't care about the Arab Spring. We know and Laffey in his movie shares, our need to create a new 'American Spring'." JUDGE ROBERT A. STANZIAN!

Santa Maria di Anzano Procession Kicks-off 2012 Religious Feast & Festivals in.Boston's North End Sunday, June 3, 2012 was the kick-off of the North End's religious festivals. Held on the first Sunday in June is the procession honoring Santa Maria di Anzano. The procession started at St. Leonard Church on Hanover Street before traveling through the streets of North End with the traditional live music of the Italian-American Band. The annual procession is sponsored by the Societa Santa Maria Di Anzano, Inc. The image of the Madonna was discovered 400 years ago in a small Italian village now known as Anzano. The Madonna Di Anzano Society was formed in 1905 in America. For more informa- tion on Societa Santa Maria Di Anzano, see their website, 2012 North End Fes- tival and Procession listing on Page 5.
