CONDOLENCES TO CAROL KANE'S FAMILY My next door neighbor Carol Kane passed away re- cently on July 2"~. She was a warm and loving mother and grandmother to a large family of offspring. Her life was her family and she was very proud of everyone of them. Her wake was at Ruggiero's in the Heights and her Mass was at Sacred Heart Church. She had lived in Eagle Hill for more than half her life Her body now rests in Holy Cross over in Malden not far from my maternal grand- mother and my Uncle Nealy. Carol's body may be at rest but she lives on for eternity with God after her struggle through life here on earth like most of us. She will live forever in heaven and in the life of her family as they carry her memories with them.

The heat didn't prevent large crowds from showing up to see a great parade. The big hit of the parade was the Greater Boston Firefighters Drum & Pipe Brigade. opment. Right across the street the Boston Herald building is now history and the site will be redeveloped too for residential and retail use.

News Briefs (Continued from Page I) handing over our informa- tion when the Feds de- manded it, what else were they to do? When it comes to this NSA scandal, I sound more like the ACLU than a political conservative. We really do need to get back to being a constitu- tional republic but today our constitution has been as- saulted by liberals who feel it is not updated. The Bill of Rights as written is still im- portant today as they were back when written in the late 18th century. I heard someone recently say that those old quotes from _Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were irrel- evant in 2013. However, in reality, those core American principles of governing are as relevant today as on the day they were written. Indi- vidual liberty, economic freedom and limited govern- ment never go out of style.

The num- bers of these part-timers who said they would prefer full-time work soared to 8.2 million, the most in eight months, said the Labor Department's monthly re- port. Many part-timers were simply unable to find a 40 hour workweek job and simply had to settle for what they could get. Seems Obamacare is playing a critical role here as employ- ers would have to offer health insurance to full-tim- ers. While the economy slowly recovers, it is still leaving too many behind, Zimmerman Trial Not Going Well for Liberals George Zimmerman is on trial down in Florida on a second degree murder charge in the killing of Trayvon Martin. The main- stream news media, racial rabble-rousers like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and cable places like MSNBC all seem to be eager to get Zimmerman convicted damn the facts I think Zimmerman may actually get off and if there is a vio- lent reaction on the streets, you can blame everyone starting with the media and hotheads not interested in justice as much as their agenda. This case could be the flip side of the O.J. Trial when facts were overlooked for ratings and rantings . for Summer Programming For the seventh year in a row, Mayor Menino has provided a Boston R.O.C.K.S. grant to North End Against Drugs to provide sum- mer programming to the youth and families of our neighborhood. Also, NEAD was a recipient of a My Summer in the City Grant from the Boston Foundation, this is the fourth year in a row that NEAD has received this grant for the youth of the North End.
