So do not rule her out as the first woman to be elected as president of the United States. Well, we will sooner or later learn if she will definitely run for office. We hope she does! To quote her, "The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off this wrong track. I'm not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things'around," she said. "But I do believe that I can win." Go for it, Sarah! Grave news! Two sisters are suing a New Jersey cemetery for 825 million because their mother was buried in the wrong grave. Evelyn and Hortense Edwards were dis- tressed to learn that their mother was not in grave 103, which they've visited for 20 years, and are seeking damages to ensure that the cemetery "would not be inclined to do that again." Speaking of graves, one of Dean Martin's famous lyrics Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime is immortalized on his marker at Westwood Memorial Park, Los Angeles, where he was laid to rest after dying in 1995 at age 78 from acute respiratory failure resulting from emphysema. Dean Martin's true name is Dino Paul Crocetti. '70s sex symbol and Charlie's Angels icon Farrah Fawcett, 62, was laid to rest next to Merv Griffin in Westwood Memorial Park. Los Angeles, after losing her battle with anal cancer in 2009. A heart attack took roman- tic swashbuckler Errol Flynn in 1959 at age 50, after which the star of classics includ- ing The Adventures of Robin Hood made For- est Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, Ca- lif., his final resting place. Westwood Me- morial Park in L,A. is home to Bert Lancaster's grave. Taken by a heart attack at age 80 in 1994, the Oscar winner gained home. Pol- lux, 9, a black Labra- dor, disap- O O O peared from her Montreal home in June 2010, and was found last week in British Columbia, drinking from a river. An animal shelter identified Pollux by means of an implanted microchip. "Oh my god. Are you kidding me?" said owner Isabelle Rabitaille when she heard the news. As to how Pollux got so far, one shelter offi- cial said, "I guess only she knows." Remember, a dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves him- self. And the astute Mona-Lisa Cappuccio of East Boston, says, "If dogs could talk, per- haps we'd find it just as hard to get along with them as we do with people." Robyn Waters of Swampscott, says, "A dog is smarter than some people. It wags its tail and not its tongue." To think, only 24 percent of teens ages 16 to 19 had summer jobs last year -- the low- est rate since the government began keep- ing records, in 1948. In 2001, 42 percent of teens in that age group held summer jobs. Shark populations have plummeted world- wide, largely because of China's appetite for shark-fin soup. More than 70 million sharks are killed every year by fishermen who cut off their fins, leading to bans on shark "finning" by several nations, including Chile, the Bahamas, and Honduras. The great Tom Analetto of Medford, says, "Nothing improves a man's luck like a fish that are in a biting mood." Bella Culo of Chestnut Hill, says, "A model wife is one who, when she spades the gar- den, picks up the fish worms for her hus- band," Mother Superior Frances Fitzgerald claims religious freedom is the right of each indi- vidual to attend the church of his choice, or iconic status for his love scene with go fishing- Deborah I err in Prom/4ere I onie flame-haired Rita Hayworth -- one of the hottest pin-ups of World War I was only 68 when Alzheimer's stole her life in 1987. She's buried in the Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City. Her tombstone reads: Rita Hayworth Beloved Mother October 17, 1918 - May 14, 1987. To yesterday's companionship and tomorrow's reunion. Rita Hayworth's true name is Margarita Carmen Cansino. How timely! Dr. William Phillips halted his lecture at a Maine hospital about coronary heart disease when an audience member complained of chest pains and collapsed. Phillips and nurses restarted the man's heart. "I think people will remember the lecture," Phillips said. At last, Rupert Murdoch is reaping what he sowed, said Carl Bernstein in Newsweek. The global media empire of the man who made billions on "cutthroat tabloid journal- ism" in Britain, Australiaand the U.S. has been shaken to its foundation by revelations of widespread phone hacking by his tabloid newspapers in Britain. More than 4,000 people had phone messages stolen by Murdoch's reporters, including a murdered girl, soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, and terrorist victims; to feed the scandal machine, his News of tile World and other newspapers hired private detectives and bribed cops to dig up dirt. To think, once upon a time, Rupert Murdoch owned The Boston Herald. It was when I was writing a weekly column for the Boston Herald, Rupert- came to Boston to meet and greet all of us. Gee, when I was introduced to him by the t-Ierald' publisher Pat Purcell, Rupert shook my hand and stated, "Keep up the good work." W0w! Shamel Shame! Meaghan Blanchard, a country singer who called Prince William a "doucher when performing for him and his wife in Prince Edward Island.

Barbara reveals a life with passion, conviction and grace. Coupled with revealing insights about many of Frank's celebrated song, this is much more than the story of a showbiz marriage. Barbara, Frank's fourth wife, describc where Frankis bur- ied, Desert Memorial Park and his simple granite grave marker inscribed, FRANCIS ALBERT SINATRA, 1915-1998. BELOVED HUSBAND AND FATHER. Engraved along the top was the song title "THE BEST IS YET TO COME." The deeply emotional widow had printed cards to send to many individuals who sent her condolence letters, prayer cards and messages of sympathy from around the world. What follows is what she created for the response cards printed and edged in navy blue, each she signed per- sonally. Your thoughtful condolence has helped me through this difficult time. Frank was my love, my friend, and my knight in shining armor. My husband was a vital and dynamic part of his family as well as for people throughout the world. He has left a deep void in so many lives. Through his music Frank will live forever. May god bless you and hold you dear and as Frank would say, 51eep Warm. For the record, our noted musicologist Albert Natale did have the opportunity to meet Sinatra when he was appearing in Boston. Natale, who was an official of the Boston's Musician's Union, Local 9-535, pre- sented to Sinatra an honorary life member- ship to the union. A photo was taken and published showing Natale proudly present- ing the membership document to a beam- ing Frank Sinatra. Ah, Frank Sinatral He had many things going for him. He could sing, he was good looking, he was famous, plus he had that one thing which women want more than anything else in a man: Money. He was married four times. His wives were: Nancy Barbato 1939, Ava Gardner 1951, Mia Far- row 1966 and Barbara Sinatra 1976. [ by Vita Orlando Sinopoli :. COPYRIGHT, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED FOTATO SALAD ALLA ITALIANA 4 potatoes 1 tablespoon oregano 1 large onion (Vidalia 3 tablespoons cider vinegar preferred in season) Salt and pepper 3 tablespoons olive oil Peel skins from potatoes. Cut into one and a half or two- inch portions. Wash potatoes and set aside. Heat enough water in a saucepan to a boil. Add potato portions. Cover saucepan. Boil potato portions until tender (about fifteen to twenty minutes). Do not overcook. While potatoes are cooking, remove outer skin from onion. Cut onion in half, lengthwise, and then into one-quarter- inch strips. Set aside. Strain potatoes from water when fork tender and place in a bowl. While potato portions are hot, add the onion, olive oil, oregano, cider vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Mix the contents thoroughly. Cover bowl and place in refrigerator to chill before serving. Additional vinegar may be added for a more vinegary taste, OPTIONAL: Potatoes may be washed and placed whole in heated water to boil until skin separates slightly (approxi- mately thirty minutes). Place potatoes in a bowl. Remove skin and then cut and follow directions given above. I find additional flavor from potatoes when boiled whole with skin. Serves four. NOTE: As a youngster, I helped Mama many times as she prepared large portions of this salad for summer cookouts in Wilmington. This popular potato salad also traveled frequently with us to the numerous family picnics. Aunts, uncles, and cousins gathered in one or two of Papd's trucks and followed us to north or south shore beaches. This is not only simple to make but can be prepared the pre- vious day. Allowing the potatoes, oil, vinegar and oregano to blend overnight in the refrigerator enhances the flavor of this salad. Freeway Says (Continued from Page 7) of your surroundings, make ~Ltr ~rour yet is wearln~ a floatation device, never let your pet drink the water in which it is swimming, and always hose off your pet af- ter swimming. If boating with your pet remember the following: dogs get seasick too so be prepared, make sure your pet has proper identification or is micro chipped in case it falls over- board and is picked up by another boater or swims to land, and remember, dogs don't know how to use "the head" so have a potty plan in mind. (10) Never leave your dog in the car. You should NEVER leave your dog in the car no matter how brief a time. A car can heat up quickly even when it's relatively mild outside. even with the willd ows cracked. On a summer day temperatures inside a vehicle can climb in min- utes and can spike more than 40 degrees in just an hour. While you think you're making your dog happy by bringing it along for the ride, you could very well be jeopardizing its safety. And you know the old adage: better safe than sorry. P.S. Before I forget I would like to thank Sal Giarratani for wishing my pal Dom and me Happy Birthday and most importantly, Sal, I am glad you didn't mention my age. Everyone knows Dom is OLDH!! That's all for now! PLEASE pick up after your pet and keep our streets clean.
