BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 28, 2013 Page 15 The Financial Corner (Continued from Page 8) (via the S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index). There are other key reports: the occasionally contradictory consumer con- fidence surveys from the University of Michigan and the Conference Board (the CB poll is more respected, as it surveys 5,000 people; the Michigan poll surveys only 500, but asks many more questions) and the Institute for Supply Management's monthly purchasing man- ager indexes assessing the health of the manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors of the economy (these are simply surveys of purchasing managers at businesses, minus hard data) .8.9 Hopefully, this makes things a little less mysteri- ous. It takes a while to get to know the financial world and its pulse, but that knowl- edge may reward you in tan- gible and intangible ways.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 6/28/13 L'Anno Bello (Continued from Page 4) proud I am to be a citizen of the United States. This Fourth of July, I hope you will join me in blending old and new traditions in order to create a holiday cel- ebration that is meaningful to you. From barbecues to fireworks, international feasts to slices of classic Ameri- cana, Independence Day is at its core a holiday that hon- ors summer, family, friends and country. Any customs that revel in the art of spend- ing time with loved ones, counting one's blessings and enjoying the beautiful sea- son are appropriate for the Fourth of July -- no matter how traditional or quirky. I wish everyone a happy and safe Independence Day! Ally Di Censo Symynkywicz is a Graduate Student in History at the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Lessons Learned (Continued in a career he had been following with success for decades and has been elected to the U.S. Senate. A man who had never run, let alone won, any office before, tried, and failed, in his attempt at one of the highest offices in the land on this first time out. Les- son: Politics is not for ama- teurs. Sure, there are some "super stars" that pop in and win a Senate seat on their first attempt at public office (Hillary Clinton, Al Franken, for example). But who other than his own mother had heard of Mr. Gomez before he ran for Senate? 2. The vast majority of the Hispanic vote would be going Democratic in this election no matter who the GOP ran, so having a first-generation Colombian-American candi- date was not going to help the GOP this time. For years Republicans, overall, have treated the Hispanic vote in from Page i) three ways -- (1) Ignore the Hispanic vote. They won't vote for us anyway, so why bother. (2) Vilify the Hispanic vote. Call them illegal aliens, wel- fare frauds, and criminals. (3) Condescend to the Hispanic vote. Don't you realize that you, a Catholic with strong family values, "should" be Republican (as if to say you are too stupid to know your own mind)? That said, the GOP can appeal to Hispanics if we persist and give reasons for at least considering our party. I fear the brain trust that runs the GOP will say: "Tried that, it didn't work, see what happened with Gomez." It took decades for the Black vote to realign from 90% Republican to 90% Democrat, but too many on our side think if we can't re- align the Hispanic vote in a single election, it's not worth trying.
