Page 18 POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 24, 2011 NEWS BRIEFS (FROM rrALmN NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS) TWO ITALIANS ON THE SPACE STATION Last April the international space sta- tion had two Italian astro- nauts. This year is the 50 th anniversary of the first hu- man who went to space, al- beit for a very short while. It was the Russian Yury Gagarin, who flew outside the earth's orbit 50 years ago. It was a flight in 1961 that shook the soul of the American nation. We all re- member how depressing it was to see a Russian achieve so much. However, the enthusiasm of the newly installed American Presi- dent, John F. Kennedy, came to the fore. He reacted by saying that we will do that, and more: we will send a man to the moon before the end of the decade. As history reminds us, his promise became a reality. By the way, the two Italian astronauts are: Paolo Nespoli and Roberto Vittori. Starting April I, they both worked in space on impor- tant experiments. Actually Paolo Nespoli was already on the space station since De- cember 15, 2010; his so- journ in space lasted159 days. As an aside, two other Italians have gone to space in 1996: Umberto Guidoni and Maurizio Cheli, who had been earlier is space, and at the same time. When the -'Discovery' space shuttle arrive at the space station, it carried along a special instrument, the AMS (Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer] which will be available to future research- ers there, up in the skyl LEGALNOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MlllP2866EA In the Estate .of THOMAS S MORONEY Late of BELMONT, MA 02478 Date of Death May 9, 2011 NOTICE OF PETITION FOR PROBATE OF WILL To all persons interested in the above captioned estate, a petition has been presented requesting that a document purporting to be the last .will of said decedent be proved and alJowed and that CHRISTOPHER R MORONEY of Stoneham, MA be appointed execut0r/trix, named in the will to serve Without Surety.

WITNESS, HON. PETER C. DiGANGI, First Justice of this Court. Date: June 15, 2011 Run date: 6124/1 f ENZO BEARZOT: The Great Soccer Athlete, dead at 83. Last December, 2010, a great soccer midfielder player and super coach of the national team passed away quite unexpectedly. He was born at Aiello del Friuli on September 26, 1927. His play was unspec- tacular, simple but very effective. I myself used to go to Catania to see him play, his passing, his ball- control, and an occasional goal. The "Club Calcio Catania" is now playing in the top division, the "SERIE A". His play wasn't that glamorous, but he never missed a good pass. I saw most of the home games, at the Cibali stadium, in Catania. Bearzot played with the Catania club three years: 1951-54. In the fall of 1954 he went to play with the team TORINO (1954-56), then with the INTER Milan (1956-57), and then back to Torino team, as before, from 1957-64. There he ended his playing career. Historically he is the na- tional team coach with the best record of all. He began coaching the TORINO team (1964-67), the Prato team (1968-69), the national team, under 23 (1969-1975), and the (senior) National Team (1977-1986). He led the national team for a record 88 games. There were: 40 victories, 26 losses, and 22 ties. But his jewel was the world championship won in Spain in 1982, which was the third time Italy had won the cup (Rimet) that was presented to the captain, and the Italian team and to the coaches. After Italy, only Brazil has won the cup at least four times. Bearzot, will be missed. He is remembered as a taciturn man, with a big nose, which I noticed the first time, and the only one, I came in close contact with him in the play- ground, in mid week and after a practice.

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 DANILCHUK CAUGHT BRUINS FEVER Lots of folks stopped by Danilchuk Auto Body on Addison Street in East Bos- ton to snap photos of the shop's tribute to the Bruins during the post-season. Af- ter that June 8, 8-I trounc- ing of Vancouver. Danilchuk painted one vehicle in Canuck colors with a larger mini-van painted in Bruins' black and gold. During the previous series against Tampa Bay, Danilchuk had a little white sports coup painted up in Tampa Bay colors. In this one a mem- ber of the Tampa Bay hockey team is depicted smashing into the front seat, while the Vancouver car has a hockey player smashing into the windshield. Danilchuck is famous for doing post-season tributes during Celtics, Red Sox and Patriots post-season games. TALBOT AVENUE STATION ON TRACK Governor Deval Patrick and Mayor Tom Menino broke ground recently on the $15 million Talbot Com- muter Rail Station in Dorchester. This part of the Fairmount Commuter Rail Line Rehabilitation Project in expected to create 120 construction jobs and the station is scheduled to open in 2013. TIME FOR O'TOOLE WELL ATTENDED District 3 city councilor candidate John O'Toole re- cently held a June 9 fundraiser over at Florian Hall in Dorchester. O'Toole is one of many candidates vying to succeed the retiring District 3 Councilor Maureen Feeney. His time was well attended. John was a past president of the Cedar Grove Civic Association. Most po- litical insiders over in Dis- trict 3 rate him as one of the frontrunners in this race. I met him a couple of years ago at a fundraiser for Homes for Veterans. He is deeply committed about his neigh- borhood and sees the Coun- cil post as another way of serving his neighbors at City Hall. THE RACE IS ON IN DISTRICT 3 The Dorchester Day pa- rade seemed twice as long this year with all the candi- dates out there running for the vacant District 3 City Council seat now that Maureen Feeney decided to retire from elective politics. There are six candidates running for the seat. Most folks who know Dorchester say the leading candidates are Johnny O'Toole, Craig Galvin and Frank Baker. Looking like a battle be- tween Savin Hill and Neponset Circle. Once wasn't Savin Hill a political powerhouse? Remember Bob Quinn and Jimmy Brett? However, now power has seemingly moved southward down to St. Ann's and St. Brendan's. Frankie Baker needs to turn out a great vote in Savin Hill and hope that toe in South Dorchester. These guys are definitely the frontrunners. Doug Bennett who ran citywide two years ago while living in District I has since moved to Dorchester and is also in the District 3 race. He re- cently told Paul Feeney of the Dorchester-based Boston City Paper that his goal "is to do well throughout every neighborhood of District 3." Isn't that the goal of every candidate for public office? Bennett who is new to this district needs to do super well across the board in Dis- trict 3 just to keep pace with all the better known Dorchester-ites running, doesn't he? SUNOCO ON DOT AVE. The Sunoco gas station at the corner of Freeport Street and Dorchester Avenue is one of the coolest places around. It is pure Dorches- ter. At times, it is just a gas station but at other times it looks like a general store where folks stop by and chit- chat about neighborhood issues, the price of gas or greedy politicians. The place is owned by Abdul and Has- san Shamshedene. You won't find a friendlier or cleaner gas establishment around. It's not exactly Starbucks and it doesn't serve vanilla lattes but like the City of Lynn, you never come out the way you went in. By the way, Paul Feeney, the longtime Boston City Paper publisher isn't just a customer there, he waits on you too. PARISH FESTIVAL IN JULY THIS YEAR The Annual Sacred Heart Parish Festival is scheduled this summer for the week- end of Friday July 15 and Saturday, July 16 in East Boston. WAYNE'S WORLD IN EASTIE? Congrats to Father Wayne who celebrated his 8 th anni- versary as pastor of Sacred Heart Parish on dune 16. The parish community thanks him for all his hard work and hopes he remains in the parish for many more years to come. THE CONSALVO ANNUAL COOKOUT A SUCCESS AS USUAL City Councilor Rob Consalvo over in District 5 kicked off the 2011 cam- paign with his 10 th annual cookout on June 23 over at the Sunset Bocce Club in Readville. There were plenty of good eats on the grill, burgers, dogs, sausages and more for all. Rob represents Hyde Park, Readville and parts of Roslindale at City Hall. Both a great councilor and cook, might I add.
