Leah Cole, R-Peabody, Lynn Mayor Judy Kennedy and Brittany from the "Jeff Kuhner Show" on WRKO Radio (Photo by Sal Giarratani) Over 5,000 folks showed up outside the Massachusetts Statehouse last Saturday, July 26 in opposition to Gover- nor Deval Patrick's decision to accept some '1,000 so-called unaccompanied "children" to ease the crisis down on o.ur southern border in especially SouthTexas where hhe" *id0d - gates have broken and thousands have run into our coun- try calling themselves refugees.

How demented must someone be to qualify as the Senate Majority Leader? Recently, in reac- tion to the 5-4 Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision, Reid actually attacked the "five white Supreme Court Justices" who voted away "a woman's right to have sex." Wrong on both counts. No one is denying a woman's right to have sex and Thomas is African American last time I looked. Who writes up this stuff for him? Is he really this bad and why is he still in charge of the U.S. Senate? EPA Brown Shirts Latest out of the Executive Branch. EPA with President Obama's blessing can now garnish the earnings of those businesses it believes have violated EPA standards without going to a judge. The IRS can already do this and now EPA joins suit. All these new regulations on citizens with- out Congress having any say in the matter. Arizona Dreamers Can Drive Now The most liberal US Court of Appeals in San Francisco has now ruled that Arizona cannot deny driver's licenses to young unauthorized immi- grants whom the federal government has given protection from deportation and permission to work.

I in- stantly thought tornado and I was correct. Everywhere I looked, I saw the results of nature's rage. Many folks were walking around in a daze wondering what just happened. I missed the tor- nado by no more than 10 minutes. I found out the tornado struck down on Broadway near the ice skating rink and moved quickly through a large swath of Revere mostly down Broadway. Folks said it sounded like a freight train roaring down a track and everything in its path was struck in little more than four minutes time. As one persor. told a,- "The sky got dark, the rain come down, the winds kicked up and trees starting falling apart." Everyone was saying the same thing. As I walked up and down Broad- way, it looked like ISIS running through Iraq. De- struction everywhere. Roofs of houses were blown off. Property damage wherever you looked. Cars covered in trees. Houses covered in trees. Live wires hanging down street after street. I saw emergency folks working quickly, following the tornado strike. Commu- nities nearby came to the aid of Revere helping to restore some sanity in the commu- nity devastated by the bru- tality of this storm. I have been t0id and was glad to hear that no one died and few were injured. Mayor Dan Rizzo called this a miracle and so do I. All in all, it was reported that about 100 structures both business and residen- tial were damaged with 13 getting condemned for be- ing unsafe. These numbers might grow but most folks were just happy to be alive to talk about what happened. A storm like this, the idea of a tornado hitting a sea- side community made people understand how powerful nature can be and how help- less victims of such a night- marish storm felt. Trees and debris strewn throughtout the Revere Beach Parkway section of Revere. An auto repair shop on Broadway, Revere had their roof blown off.

Lives will move on, no one will forget Monday, July 28 th or where they were when that tornado touched their very lives. Kudos to Mayor Dan Rizzo (Photo by Sal Oiarratani) and Revere city officials who led the community through the tornado's trail of destruc- tion. Congrats to all the nearby communities who quickly came to Revere's aid. Revere will keep on keep- ing onl THE POST-GAZEI"rE SATELLITE OFFICE IS NOW OPEN AT 35 BENNINGTON STREET, EAST BOSTON This office is open on Tuesdays from 10:(X) AM to 3.'00 PM and ..
