BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, J ULY-1,2011 Page.15 Freeway Says (Continued from swallowing large pieces of the plastic containers. Keep citronella candles, insect coils and oil products out of reach. Ingestions can produce stomach irritation and possibly even central nervous system depression. If inhaled, the oils could cause aspiration pneumo- nia in pets. Never use fireworks around pets! While exposure to lit fireworks can poten- tially result in severe burns and/or trauma to the face and paws of curious pets, even unused fire- works can pose a danger. Many types contain poten- tially toxic substances, in- cluding potassium nitrate, arsenic and other heavy metals. Loud, crowded fireworks displays are no fun for pets, so please resist the urge to take them to Inde- pendence Day festivities. Instead, keep your little guys safe from the noise in a quiet, sheltered and escape-proof area at home. from Page 7) All said and done I hope all my readers and my pooch friends and especially my friends at the Post-Gazette have a wonderful fun time and a safe 4  of July. Oh before I forget if you happen to be walking by the Post-Gazette please drop in and wish my boss Pamela Donnaruma on July 8 th a very happy "Happy Birthday." "Happy Birthday Boss" and many, many more "love Freeway." That's all for now. Remem- ber to pick up after your pet and keep our neighbor- hood streets and sidewalks clean. PRAYER TO ST. JUDE May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and pre- served throughout the world now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, help of the hopeless, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day and by the 8th day your prayers will be answered. It has never been known to fail. Publication must be promised. My prayers have been answered. A.T.P.

MACKEY INTERIM CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 07/01/11 EXTRA Innings ,--. by Sal Giarratani Tim Wakefield a Lifesaver Once Again So far this season Tim Wakefield is 4-2 with a 4.26 ERA. However, since enter- ing the starting rotation in May, he has gone 4-1 with a 3.60 ERA in six starts. We've hardly missed Dice-K, a big disappointment for his sal- ary and time with the Red Sox since coming over from Japan. Wakefield now has 197 lifetime wins. He's also closing in on the Red Sox win list too. Roby Home from Hospital Brooks Robinson the Hall of Fame third baseman for the Baltimore Orioles has been released from the hos- pital and is home and doing reportedly well. Robinson, 74, had been hospitalized at Greater Baltimore Medical Center for what was sup- posed to be routine surgery but ended up staying two weeks due to a high fever and infection. In 2009, he LEGAL NOTICE was treate d for prostate can- cer and has remained can- cer-free. A New Gedman Signs Up Framingham's Matt Ged- man, the Red Sox' 45th-round draft out of UMass and son of former Red Sox catcher Rich Gedman, has reported to the team's minor league complex down in Ft. Myers. If he ends up in the Sox operation, he can play sev- eral in- field positions. He had a .334 career average in his four seasons at UMass. He was the starting third baseman in the recent New England Intercollegiate All- Star game. Most likely, he'll probably end up in the Sox' Gulf Coast Rookie League team. That's More Like It Red Sox pitcher Josh Beckett is back to his old great form this season to date. His stats are proving he's on a comeback season. At the moment he is 6-2 with a 1.86 ERA. On the night the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup, he was pitch- ing one of his best games ever. He ended up with a one-hit shutout and al- most threw a no-hitter but thanks to the Bruins, no one seemed to know what he was doing. This may be Red Sox Nation but not on the evening of June 15 when it was all about those Big Bad Bruins whipping those Vancouver Canucks in their own house. Orlando Reaches Milestone The shortstop for the Cleveland Indians Orlando Cabrera reached a career milestone on June 12 when he whacked his 2,000 career hit with a single in that second inning. Red Sox Nation well remem- bers his contribution to the 2004 World Series winning Red Sox team after getting traded here as Norma was no more in Boston. Two thousand hits is a big deal and congrats go out to Orlando.
