Page2 ( POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 28, 2013 Nostra by Prof. Edmund Turiello A weekly column highlighting some of the more interesting aspects of our ancestry.., our lineage.., our roots. JAMES BUCHANAN DATE OF BIRTH: April 23, 1791 PLACE OF BIRTH: Cove Gap, PA DATE OF DEATH: June 1, 1868 PLACE OF DEATH: Lancaster, PA PRESIDENT: March 4, 1857 - March 4, 1861 The only Pennsylvanian and bachelor to become President, His name was Buchanan and to the White House he went; Elected to this office by quite a majority, Preserving the Union was his highest priority. The split over slavery was his job number one, But like others before it just couldn't be done; His foreign policy became energetic, But with the North vs. South he was just not kinetic. In his inaugural address his plan was revealed, To first form his Cabinet then leave nothing concealed; If the slavery problem should get too difficult or hot, Just dump it on the courts as in the Dred-Scott. He tried to deflect national attention, From domestic problems to foreign intervention; If you don't think that history always repeats itself, You're as dense as those bookends sitting on your shelf. As a bachelor the problem that bugged him the "mostess" Without a wife the White House still needed a hostess; HIS niece did the job and when the time carrie to thank her, He matched the young lady with a Baltimore banker.

The special election in District 5 will have a large field of Democrats in the Pri- mary. My goal is to connect with the voters in the district and clearly communicate to them that the Republican Party is the party of working people, that the Republican Party is the party that will protect the middle class, that the Republican Party is the party that cares about the needy and disadvantaged and has better solutions to help people improve their lives We all know that our image has been distorted and demonized by the efforts of many liberal groups, but now, more than ever, it is time to take our identity back and educate Massachusetts voters about who we really are and what we stand for. I am willing to go out there to bring this message to the people, but I need you to back my efforts and assist in any way you can. We will need your time, your involvement and any financial help you can offer to make it possible for me to spread our mes- sage. The first and foremost task will be to collect signatures to get me on the ballot. Many of you know that I am a hard working candidate and in the past I collected the ma- jority of my signatures. How- ever, this time I need your help because we will need to collect the 2,000 required signatures in a very short period of time (about three weeks), in the middle of the summer. I know many of yon put together tremen- dous efforts to get three GaP candidates on the ballot back in February and I am ask- ing you to help us collect sig- natures within the next few weeks. To help with signatures, please contact us at I hope you can spare some time to participate in the signature drive and I would be honored and grateful to have your support in the election.

Menino announced the full-time launch of the nation's premiere City Hall on wheels. Taking its cue from the ever-popular food truck, the dazzlingly-de- signed "City Hall to Go" truck will travel throughout Boston's neighborhoods, provid- ing a select menu of city services to con- stituents. Beginning July 2nd, the "City Hall to Go" truck will visit neighborhoods on a full-time schedule, regularly rotating throughout the city on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thurs- days. On Fridays and Saturdays the truck will be available upon request, appearing at special events, block parties and street fes- tivals. Residents stopping by the truck will be able to pay or dispute parking tickets, request birth, death or marriage certifi- cates, and pay property and excise taxes, among other services. The full menu of offerings is available here: / cityhaUtogo. "The 'City Hall to Go' truck makes per- sonal, timely service from the City of Bos- ton possible for a whole new set of constitu- ents," Mayor Menino said. "We are con- stantly trying to push what appear to be the limits of municipal services. The success of the truck's earliest visits shows that ben- efits of City Hall can exist far beyond its walls." Following a successful soft launch in De- cember 2012, services have been added to the "City Hall to Go" truck's menu following a survey soliciting resident feedback. As part of the Mayor's new sustainability initiative Greenovate Boston and to help Bostonians save on their energy bills, the menu now includes the opportunity to sign up for Re- new Boston's home energy audits and weatherization. The revamped menu also allows residents to request raffle applica- tions and submit claims to the City Clerk. In response to residents' requests, the truck will be open weeknights until 7 p.m., and Saturdays until 5 p.m. On the fourth Tuesday of every month, residents can tweet @CityHallToGo their preferred location for the truck that day. The vehicle will an- nounce the most tweeted location on Twit- ter and arrive at that location at 12:30 p.m. The truck will also host bilingual nights in various neighborhoods throughout the month. Boston's diverse neighborhoods .inspire the design of the "City Hall to Go" truck. Origi- nally a Boston Police Department SWAT ve- hicle, the truck has been re-imagined for the purpose of the program. The map encir- cling the truck takes a viewer from west to east, along actual city streets, while the skyline celebrates Boston's thriving center. Residents can sign up for Twitter alerts via @CityHallToGo or visit the truck's Web page for updates: cityhalltogo.
