BOSTON POST-GAZETTE, JULY 15, 2011 Page15 Thinking Out Loud (Continued from Page 4) what Yancey has done since getting elected to the Boston City Council back in 1983 to bring peace to his constitu- ents living with this endless violence and death that has become the norm for his dis- trict You can blame the Mayor and police for not do- ing enough, but what was his excuse. Portions of the City of Boston now resemble either Dodge City or the Tombstone Territory and that remains unacceptable to decent people trying to survive and raise their fami- lies. If you can't let your kids out of the house or your sight, it means a "perfect storm" for the shooters out there Critics of the Mayor need to work with City Hall to cre- ate the environment for peace but that environment has to come from within the communities plagued by vio- lence. It can not be imposed from outside. When people living with this violence get fed up enough and band to- gether with city officials, the and only then, is the envi- ronment ready to change for the better. People who throw their hands up in the air and surrender to the violence swirling around them have created their own victimiza- tion. When children are afraid to leave their houses, it means the adults in the community have failed in LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. 07D-0391DV1 SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION TATIANE OLIVEIRA, Plaintiff v.

WITNESS, Hun. PETER C. DiGANGI, First Justice of this Court. June 21, 2011 Tara E. DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 7/15/11 making their communities safe havens. The issue of urban vio- lence isn't just a Boston issue for its own neighbor- hood but a reminder to all of us no matter how far re- moved from Boston we might be. There are lessons on these mean streets of Bos- ton for quiet communities miles away who think the problem doesn't affect them. Any community can become Roxbury, Dorchester or Mattapan when communi- ties stop working together to ensure that peace is the norm. Most people reading this commentary probably won't witness the daily bru- tality that some can't es- cape. Too many it's late the sixties when we watched Vietnam War on the news at six but like we learned back then, it wasn't a TV show and we were all wounded by it six thousand miles away. Back on July 7, the close- ness of Boston violence hit me. There was a shooting at Columbia Road intersection at 2:20 PM that sunny Thursday afternoon; I drove by that intersection at 2:25 PM. Five minutes away from that meaningless violence we read about in the papers. It could be away for you too. Think about it! PRAYER TO ST.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 7/15/11 retiring Manny Ramirez who the Dodgers still owe $21 million. NY's 8 Inning Guy Great Setup for Mariano David Robertson is quite unassuming and still off the radar of most baseball fans outside New York. With Rafael Soriano out at the moment, Robertson has stepped in as a great setup pitcher. He's become quite good at getting four or five outs. As of the end of June, he was 1-0 with a 1.15 ERA. In 31.1 innings, he has walked lots with 20 so far, but he also has 50 strike- outs. Soriano has been out with a sore right elbow since May 13 and Robertson has been impressive replacing him in the 8 a inning. Don Buddin in Short Stop Heaven Now Lots of old baseball players when they pass away get big write-ups on the obituary pages, but former Red Sox shortstop back in the early '60s died on July 5 at age 77 and he made a single para- graph on the sports page roundup. He came up in 1956 and spent what most considered five long seasons with the Sox before "Red Sox Nation" was born. Back then, we were "Frustrated Nation." Lifetime, he hit .244 with 39 home runs. His best season was in 1961 when he hit .263 with 42 RBIs. The Sox traded him to the Hous- ton Colt 45's before the start of the 1962 season for Eddie Bressoud, who would hit .292 that season before he would be traded to the Giants to make room for a Sox rookie named Rico Petrocelli. Ques- tion, who did we get for Hous- ton for Don Buddin? Pap Isn't Pap Anymore Just before the All-Star break (July 5), Jonathan Papelbon came into the ninth inning against the Blue Jays with a 3-0 lead. He earned his 18 th save the hard way. He pitched the ninth, gave up four hits, one walk and a two-run homer. Not exactly Miriano Rivera or close to him anymore. Starting to remind me of the last days of Dick "The Monster" Radatz when he became a shadow of his own self on the mound. Cameron Gonzo Mike Cameron just never worked out for the Sox. The 39-year-old Cameron just came off the DL hitting only 149 with three homers and nine RBIs in 33 games. He will now be playing in the outfield for the Marlins for a player to be named later He will still cost the Sox $3 million for the rest of the season. We can chalk this up to high hopes gone badly.
