Donnaruma 1896 to 1953 1953 to 1971 1971 to 1990 Vol. 117 - No. 27 Friday, July 5, 2013 OUR POLICY: To help preserve the ideals and sacred traditions of this our adopted country the United States of America: To revere its laws and inspire others to respect and obey them: To strive unceasingly to quicken the public's sense of civic duty: In all ways to aid in making this country greater and better than we found it. GUEST EDIT( )RIAL God Bless the U.S.A. by Sal Giarratani With the way things are going, we certainly need God's blessing on our nation. Many have distorted what America has always stood up for and the rest of us look on silently and do nothing. Remember the words of Edmund Burke who said bad things will happen if good people do nothing. We celebrate Independence Day on July Fourth marking our independence from the British govern- ment. Our Founding Fathers created a free America where the people rather than Kings are the govern- ment. However, in 2013 the people clearly are taking the orders and our constitutional republic has been turned on its head. Recently, I heard former House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, say that July Fourth isn't just Independence Day, but ObamaCare Day. Now, it is all about George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Barack Obama. With more and more Americans taking from the government, perhaps we should consider the Fourth of July as really Depen- dence Day on the government because that seems to be the new spirit of America in Obama's world. Artists in Residence Craft Workshops RETURN JULY 9 TM The Boston Parks and Recreation Department's annual ParkARTS program, generously supported by Bank of America, is pleased to announce the return of its series of children's arts and crafts workshops giving kids the oppor- tunity to express their creativity while working on fun projects with local artists.

Boschetto's Bakery Another Legend Closes in the North End Boschetto's Bakery on 158 Salem Street in the North End of Boston will close its doors on ,July 6, 2013 after 110 years in business. Boschetto's was founded in 1905 by Avellino-native Andrew Bosehetto, the bak- ery was sold to Raffaello Bartolomeo De Stefano in front of Boschetto's Bakery's 1895 brick oven. "Ralph" Bruno in the late '50s. In the 90's a long time worker of the Bakery Bartolomeo "Bart" DeStefano bought the bakery. It's sad that another 100 year plus business is closing its doors due to "excessive rent". One wonders what is going to happen to the huge original brick oven that sits in one corner of the bakery. On its little iron door there is an impressive date: 1895 -- the year it was made. Another piece of history gone.
