As I See It Landmark Street we have the very ists. Located on Chelsea gems of East unique Pericola's Gift and Street, most of the time Boston that de- Jewelry store, founded by waiting lines form outside serve recogni- Dave Oriolas grandparents, waiting to get in. Overseas tion. They have Eve and Virgie. Down a ways visitors make the barbecue provided outstanding service to the community during good times and bad. Never turning their back on the community come contribu- tion time. Whether it be for youth sports, organizations in need of money, that in- cludes the Columbus Day Parade etc. These anchor businesses are the corner- stone of the community, starting with the Lombardo family, generous in contri- butions. A part of Eastie's continuing economic growth that began with Eastie's beloved friend, Sal Lombardo, who opened a small meat and grocery store on Porter Street in the forties and kept the family money invested in East Boston. Mr. Lombardo built the first shopping cen- ter in Central Square called Liberty Plaza on Border Street. The family opened East Boston's first nightclub and function facility, and they continue to operate various commercial and pri- vate properties. Across the street, Al's Shoe Store has been in business for over 30 years and continuing a thriv- ing business against their competition, carrying the very latest in stylish shoes. Next door is Tello's clothing that began in the fifties and now has several different locations. On Bennington Kelly's Pub, a family owned business for more than 25 years, continues to serve satisfied customers and fea- tures a function facility in the rear of the restaurant. Kellys Pub is famous for serv- ing many sports figures. Then we have our favor- ite pasta and pastry shop, Spinelli's, owned by the Roberto family that have expanded into state-of-the- art function facilities, lo- cated in Day Square and on the lake in Lynnfield. Jeveli's Restaurant in Day Square is another popular spot that is known through- out the North Shore and Boston. Eric Jeveli had the pleasure of serving former President Bill Clinton and his staff while visiting Bos- ton during his presidency. And, then we have Elite Donut a stone's throw away that has been serving break- fast to the East Boston work- ing community for over 30 years. Joe is also known for his generosity within the community. He is always willing to help out the spe- cial needs of the community. Eastie is grateful to have and enjoy these solid busi- nesses. Let's not forget San- tarpio's Pizza that made East Boston famous with their pizza and BBQ. Santarpio's is a must for locals and tour- and pizza restaurant their first stop while in Boston. Gloria Chain on Everett Street and Meridian Market, two outstanding long time markets that sell the best in Italian cold cuts, sandwiches and party platters are not to be excluded as part of Eastie's heritage .... Hats off to these award winning "Businessmen and Women of Honor." They are truly the heart and soul of East Bos- ton. May each and every business continue its suc- cessesl .,. Route One is a disaster. It doesn't matter what time of day or night you travel on Route One, you are always stuck in traffic. Of course perpetual water main breaks don't help7 The breaks occur more fre- quently lately. Our infra- structure is collapsing, our country is going to hell, and the American people appear helpless ... President Obama has opened the gates of America to everyone. He's allowed our manufacturing companies to go overseas (India, China and Taiwan to name a few), and soon our population will exceed that of China. Obama has taken the country for a ride down destruction road and we have to vote him out! Obama has become America's worst nightmare! ... Till next time.
