We need to reinvest in people, rein- vest in manufacturing. That's how we're going to turn our economy around." So simple, isn't it Ed Schultz. Why didn't we think of that? We can fix things if we just raise "revenue" from all of us. Just don't call it what it is: ahem, taxes. Atheists Versus Seven in Heaven Way NYC Atheists are all bent out of shape over a 9/11 street sign. Some folks never found the remains of their loved ones after 9/11. For some like Ralph Gullick- son, all he has is a street sign honoring him, but a group of atheists are out to take it away from him and others. The Manhattan- based NYC Atheists are de- manding the Big Apple to change the name of a Brook- lyn block christened "Seven in Heaven Way" in honor of seven firefighters killed at the September attacks. Said Gullickson in reaction to that move, "We weren't even able to recover my brother's remains• These things like a sign (are) all we have left. How dare these people try to take it away from us. Richard Street was offi- cially changed in June to salute the seven fallen fire- fighters from Ladder Com- pany 101/Engine Company 202. Both a community board and the NY City Coun- cil signed off on the name change. However, Ken Bronstein, head NYC Atheist, doesn't like the sign. "We, see reli- gion imprinted in our cul- ture from _the time we're young enough t~ remem- ber." He's planning a law- suit. Who isn't filing a lawsuit these days? Lean Forward MSNBC Recently, there was a full page ad in The Nation from MSNBC. It contained a quote from Lawrence O'Donnell, one of this cable network's talking heads. "This country was built on a very simple idea: WE ALL AREN'T HERE YET. With more people and more ways of looking at the world, we will have better ideas. Immigration is an added• value to this country. It always has been." Actually, who can disagree with Larry? Of course, immi- gration made this country what it is today. I am a sec- ond generation American with grandparents from both Sciacca in west Sicily and Bere Island in West Cork. However, the issue of illegal immigration is economi- cally killing America• The liberals don't see flood- gates crashing down and hordes sneaking into this country, mainly from Mexico but many other countries too. America has always been a nation of immigrants, but illegal immigration is not part of that American legacy that O'Donnell is romanticizing. Brown Versus Which Warren It appears the Democratic Party is obsessing over the possibility of U.S. Senator Scott Brown getting re- elected• Liberal Democrats seem to be pushing some- one or two named Warren. First, there's Setti Warren, mayor of Newton, then there's Elizabeth Warren, a liberal Democrat and college professor. Liberals love to pander to their constitu- ency. Setti is African-Ameri- can.. Elizabeth is ?I am woman hear me roar." At this point in time. I don't see Brown getting defeated. He's defined himself quite well. No one running or thinking about running against him is a viable alternative to him. Brown isn't perfect in my eyes, but it is good get- ting at least one Republican voice up on Capitol Hill for Massachusetts. • Public Hearing Notice (Continued from Page 1) City of Boston.

He worked hard and he wanted everybody to work hard. He was the right guy at the right time." --- Carl Yastrzemski As a baby boomer growing up in the '50s and '60s, the Boston Red Sox were pa- thetic, losing game after game and season after sea- son. Older fans would often tell us about the glory days in the late '40s and early '50s when we were prepar- ing for kindergarten. They would tell us about Ted Will- iams and the 1946 World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals. They would tell us about the one game playoff between Satchel Paige and the Cleveland Indians in 1948, when we almost met up with the Boston Braves in the World Series. However, for most of us growing up, we saw the Sox struggle. From 1959 through 1966, the team played under .500 ball. I often went to Fenway to see the stars of other teams like Mickey Mantle, Al Kaline, Harmon Killerbrew, Dean Chance, Brooks Rob- inson, Luis Aparicio, Bobby Richardson, Rocky Colavito and company• Of course, the Red Sox had some great players too like Pete Runnels, Bob Tillman, George Scott, Chuck Shil- ling, Dick Stuart, Yaz, Tony C., Frank Malzone, Earl Wil- son and Billy Monbouquette from Medford. We also had Dick "The Monster" Radatz, the greatest relief pitcher ever to play in the major leagues. Not even Miriano Rivera can match up against his career from 1962-64. The Red Sox also had some seemingly terrible players like Pumpsie Green, Roman Mejias and Don Oile who was the third string catcher be- hind Tillman and Jim Pag- liaroni in the early '60s. Gile struggled for every single hit. One double hitter, he whacked, like, five hits and he probably only had five LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MI10D3348DR DIVORCE SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION AND MAILING RACHEL VALERIE DeOLIVEIRA VS.

Don Buddin, who just passed away a couple of weeks be- fore Williams, always had more errors at shortstop than he had hits. He even made Dick "Stonefingers" Stuart look like a Golden Glove winner. Everything changed dra- matically in 1967, when Tom Yawkey hired Dick Williams as skipper. When his name was announced, the rookie manager with the crew cut predicted, "We'll win more than we lose." They did in 1967 when the Red Sox won the pennant on the last day of the season by passing both the Minne- sota Twins and Detroit Tigers taking first place with a 92-70 record. They indeed did win more than they lost. Williams was old school. He didn't communicate with his players. When Williams talked to a player he treated the player as if he were talk- ing to cement. He didn't care about hurting feelings. He only cared about winning. Mike Andrews said players could go months without talking to him. He didn't care, but he knew the game inside out and upside down. Most people forget that Dick Williams was also a baseball player before his career as a manager. He signed with the Brooklyn Dodgers the same year LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Pro~'ate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MI11D1587DR DIVORCE SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION AND MAILING SOPHIA NAMUYOMA LUTAAYA a/k/a SOPHIA N.

DeCristofaro, Register of Probate Run date: 7/29/11 (1947) that Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier and played parts of 13 seasons with five teams including the Red Sox. He hit .260 with 70 home runs playing both infield and outfield. As a manager in 21 sea- sons, he won 1,571 games, four pennants with three different teams and three World Series. During the '70s, he won two World Series in his three sea- sons with the Oakland A's. He also led the Padres to the 1984 World Series. His final season as manager was in 1988 with the Seattle Mariners. When he was fired by the Red Sox during the 1969 season reportedly in a baseball turf battle with Yawkey, his relationship with Boston soured. He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown in 2008. The Red Sox inducted him into Boston's Hall of Fame in 2006. Said Ken "Hawk" Harrel- son (who played on the Red Sox between late 1967 through 1969), "He was a tough guy but a smart guy. He wasn't a good man- ager. He was a great man- ager. I4e had great instincts on and off the baseball field. You always knew where you stood." " Whenever I think of the 1967 Red Sox, I start sing- ing the "Impossible Dream" and belt out the lyrics which symbolized that whole sea- son. This was a team with the odds stacked against them at season's start (They were 100-1 odds in Vegas). When Tony Conigliaro went down with that August beam- ing, Hawk Harrelson stepped in. When Mike Andrews got hurt, Jerry Adair stepped in. The Sox had some great utility players like Norm Siebern and Dalton Jones, a great pinch hitter. They had players like Jose TarabuI1, Reggie Smith and Jim Lonborg. They picked up a guy named Gary Bell who looked just awesome on the mound after coming over from Cleveland. Who can forget Gary Waslewski who pitched great in Game 6 or 19-year-old Kenny .,Brett? Or Sparky Lyle, the best relief pitcher next to Radatz. Bottom line: According to Dick Williams, "There's only one chief and the rest of you are indians." Except, I guess, for Gary Bell who left the Indians for Boston that 1967 season. Jim Lonborg won the Cy Young that season with 22 wins and Yastrzemski won the Triple Crown, but it was Dick Williams who made the team legendary to this day because he dreamed the impossible dream and fought the un- beatable foe. In 2004 we destroyed the Curse of the Bambino, but for baby boomers who suf- fered through those lean years, nothing beats the team molded together by Dick Williams who won more games than were lost.
