GUEST EDITORIAL REAL ESTATE TAX IN 0BAMACARE BILL (Part 2) by Edward P. Shallow In my editorial of October 5, 2010, I warned that all real estate transactions would be subject to a 3.8% sales tax. Additionally there are other surprises lurking, This is what Nancy Pelosi meant when she said, "We have to pass the bill to find out what's in it." There are already 20 hidden taxes in the Obama Health care plan to be sprung upon an unsuspecting populace. Along with rationed care for seniors and forced health insurance, we find there is a real estate tax snuck into the ObamaCare health plan. You may ask what in God's earth does health care have to do with real estate taxes? The answer: nothing, and that is precisely why one was stuck in there. For the edification of readers, I submit the following from the website of the Republican Majority in Congress: "If you plan to sell your house after 2012, call your Republican representative in Congress to confirm this hidden fact about the ObamaCare regulation." Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you would pay a 3.8% sales tax on it? That is $3,800 on a $100,000 home, etc. Just thought voters should know. The Sales Tax goes into effect in Z01D a~ part of the Health Care Bill Why 2013? The Democrats did not want the tax to become an election issue, that is the reason the effective date is 2013. The mainstream media do mislead voters; every editorial they write will be to enhance Obama's reelection. If your home is worth 9400,000, the tax on that sale will be $15,200.00. This bill is set to take advantage of the retiring generation who often downsize their homes. Consider how important your vote is in 2012. Your future is at stake.

SHIEPE Captures Core of Child Star Syndrome- Invited to Appear at Boston's 101st Fisherman's Feast and Angel Flight Having struck a chord with former Hollywood child stars, C. B. Shiepe, author of word-of-mouth best seller CLIFF FALLS, is set to appear at Boston's 101st Fisherman's Feast and Angel Flight, Sunday, August 21st. Calling on his experi- Author ence working in the Faith C. B. Shiepe and Entertainment worlds, Shiepe overcame a seven year health chal- lenge to write and publish this successful indic novel about an exploited child star hid- ing in a mega church. Shiepe, a native of Lawrence, MA, set the In-st half of his novel in the North End where troubled child star Clay Grant is hiding in Mike's Pastry during the Fisherman's Feast. He befriends the little girl set to play the angel who is afraid of heights. "C. B. Shiepe has done something we have never seen before. He struck a chord capturing the core of the 'former child star' syndrome. I sat up through the dark hours reading this book. It kept me turning the pages ... and filled me with a sense of hope. As a man who has lived and collected thousands of genuine kid star stories, I highly recommend this illuminating and insightful work. It is that goodt" -- Paul Petersen, Donna Reed~Founder, A Minor Consideration. Cliff Falls is the story of Clay Grant, a child star from the '80s, who goes on the run to escape his past and reinvent his future. His journey takes him to Cliff Falls, where he finds safe harbor in a mega-church run by the Reverend Reagan Mitchell and starts the process of finding himself. The jour- ney that Shiepe's book took to publication is even more complicated. According to news reports, Shiepe first started working on the story in Hollywood -- as a TV series, then a TV movie, then a feature film, and finally, as a book. "In a world where entertainment has become our religion and religion our enter- tainment, CLIFF FALLS wrestles with the question of what it means to be truly human. What Clay discovers will change his life and perhaps yours." This novel is not just entertaining, it's changing lives. According to Shiepe, he keeps receiving emails from people who have gone over the falls in their own lives saying that this novel has been healing for them and brought them closer to God. Shiepe's own story of overcoming an illness to write and publish a successful independent novel -- without a pub- lisher, publicist or dis- tributor -- has been the subject of dozens on print, radio and television interviews. Shiepe currently lives in Southern California, and his novel is released by Cliff Falls Media. CLIFF FALLS is available through Kindle. The Nook, and at over 60 independent book stores in California. Mayor Menino and Police Commissioner Davis Plan to Honor First Italian Police Officer ANDREW B. CUNEO by Police Officer Robert E. Anthony, BPD Chronologist Patrolman Andrew B.

Earlier in the day he entered the pawn shop of Max Bloom which was located at 331 Hanover Street in the North End of Boston. Whelan asked the owner, Max Bloom, for a 38. caliber revolver that was in the display case, B10(~m handed an I-I&R 38 caliber revolver to Whelan who then removed "bullets from his pocket and loaded the weapon. Whelan then told Max Bloom that he would return later that night to pay for the gun. Mr. Bloom requested payment and Whelan had no intention of paying for the pistol. Max Bloom then told Whelan "I'11 call the police" and Whelan exited the pawn shop with the pistol at his side. Max Bloom followed Whelan out of tol out he caused panic among the shoppers as they ran into shops and hid be- hind parked motor vehicles to get out of Whelan's way.
