Donnaruma 1896 to 1953 1953 to 1971 1971 to 1990 Vol. 118 - No. 32 Friday, August 8, 2014 OUR POLICY: To help preserve the ideals and sacred traditions of this our adopted country the United States of America: To revere its laws and inspire others to respect and obey them: To strive unceasingly to quicken the public's sense of civic duty: In all ways to aid in making this country greater and better than we found it. GUEST EDITORIAL Cesar Chavez Opposed Illegals m Was He a Nativist too? by Sal Giarratani As someone who attended the State House rally with over 5,000 others protesting the move by Governor Deval Patrick to accept as many as 1,000 unaccom- panied children from our southern border, I refuse to be characterized as either a 19m Century nativist like U.S. Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge, R-Mass; or a modern day racist. I believe in the rule of law. When we accept or excuse lawlessness, we only encourage more of it. The plight of my grandparents who came to America in the early years of the 20TM Century and what we are seeing at our border today and across America have little in common. My grandparents left Europe to start a new life in America; they came here to give, not to take. They didn't sneak into America and hide in the shadows. As I read Jeff Jacoby's bashing of WRKO's Jeff Kuhner and those starting with him ("God Bless America," now with irony~ July 30m) I felt blindsided. Was Jacoby even present at the "Kuhner Country Rally?" Or did he just read the news reports in the Boston Globe? As far as the news reports, over 5,000 people showed up at the State House on Saturday morning, the Boston Globe ran a short news story and no photo of the crowd. However, on Tuesday, July 29m, the Boston G/obe did both a news story and photo taken at a pro- immigration rally held at Irish Famine Memorial in Downtown Boston at which a small crowd showed up to call their opponents all kinds of bad names. Ron Bell's comments sounded very unchristian-like ques- tioning the motives of those opposed to the governor's plan. He preached, "What if it was your child? What if it was a person that looked like you?" There are two legitimate points of view here on the governor's plan, but the Boston Globe slants the news as if opponents are wrong and behaving as Jeff Jacoby stated in an "unhinged" over the top reaction. A Legacy of Fashion and a Lifetime of Generosity Yolanda Cellucci, re- nowned fashion icon and noted philanthropist, will celebrate her 80th birthday this year. To mark this momentous occasion, a gala will be held in her honor on November 15, 2014 at Dassault Syst6mes in Waltham. All proceeds from this event will benefit four of Yolanda's favorite charities: The Waltham Rotary Club, The Waltham Boys & Girls Club, Reagle Music Theatre of Greater Boston and Maristhill Rehabilitation & Nursing Center. Yolanda is the epitome of glamour and possesses a business savvy that sets her apart. As the "First Lady of Fashion" Yolanda transformed her Waltham bridal boutique into a high fashion empire featuring designs by the world's top designers. Her extrava- gant fashion shows were legendary and featured elaborate ensembles, outrageous accessories and one-of-a-kind headdresses that lit up! Yolanda's philanthropic work is also unrivaled. She has received countless awards throughout her career for her chari- table works, most notably from President Bill Clinton and the late Senator Ted Kennedy for her work with the Massachusetts Brain Injury Association. Popular WMJX 106.7's radio person- ality Candy O'Terry and Comedian, Lenny Clark will host Yolanda's Glitz Gala, which prom- ises to be a spectacular event. Entertainment in- cludes appearances by Diva Extraordinaire, Verna Turbulence, and multi- talented impersonator, Joey Voices. Honorary Committee members in- clude Giuseppe Pastorelli, Consolato Generale d'Italia; Lou Nocera, Founder and Owner of Chateau Restau- rants; plus former WCVB- TV News Anchor and Reporter Susan Wornick, will serve as celebrity auc- tioneer for the evening. CEO Tom Dusel of Hobbs Brook Management LLC has commit- ted to be a major "Diamond" sponsor for the evening. "Yolanda is an incredibly generous per- son," remarked Maria Sheehan, Executive Director of WCAC-TV and President of the Waltham Rotary Club. "When the Gala Glitz committee approached Yolanda with the idea of this big event, she insisted that all the proceeds go to charities in the Waltham area." "Giving back to the community and to those in need is very important to me," says Yolanda. "The four charities that will ben- efit from this event are all close to my heart. I am honored to be part of such an incred- ible fundraising effort." For more information, please visit w ww. yolandasglitzgala, com. It Was Disco Inferno Time at the Don Orione The Don Orione was hop- ping to the sounds of disco music on Tuesday, July 22"a. Doing the deejaying once again was the popular Smokin' Joe who brought "Disco to the Don." The fourth floor disco "club" even had some hot, hot, hot disco balls. So hot, you couldn't touch them. Over 75 folks showed up and some came looking like John Travolta himself. It was Saturday Night Fever on a Tuesday night. Listening to the sound of that great old disco music got folks out on the dance floor where they were heat- ing up the room with energy. Even I got on the dance floor like back in the day and was smoking myself like Smokin' Joe. by Sal Giarratani Disco at the Don. Kudos goes out to the staff and volunteers who keep coming up with great events to keep the clients there hopping and having a great time. All that was missing was Sly and the Family Stone along with Gloria Gaynor getting off the elevator on the 4~ floor during the disco party night.
