POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 25, 2017 PAGE 5 Mrs. Murphy... As I See It A Frank De Pasquale Venture Ronnie Catena, East Boston activist and a ....... political voice in East Boston passed away in Florida recently. Born in East Boston, he later moved to Revere and then to Ft. Lauderdale, FL. A funny and caring man who was respected by the East Boston commu- nity. Always with a smile and a joke, one could always count on a laugh or two with Ronnie Catena ... After years of neglect, owners of the Wonderland Dog Track have a begun a clean-up because word is they may be negotiating to sell the property to the same outfit that bought Suffolk Downs. A fence was installed around the proper and heavy equipment can be seen from the street. A demolition crew has begun to take down the dilapidated Wonderland Dog Track at a cost of approximately four million dollars. Owners of Wonderland are baiting rats and cleaning up the land. Home and condo owners in the area may want to get their property exter- minated! ... Bob Kraft, owner of the New England Patriots, has bought two new state-of-the-art planes to transport his team. One will be used as a back- up. The New England Patriots deserve to travel in a private jet; they've made their owner and New England fans proud[ ... Suffolk Downs was given approval for two more racing days, bringing the total to eight for the season ... Some IHOPS are closing in Massachusetts. It's no Surprise; their pancakes are not up to snuffi ... Revere News: In the race for Revere Councilor at-large, here's what voters are predicting. Jessica Giannino may top the ticket because of family recognition, but Dan Rizzo will come in strong because the people of Revere miss him!l! ... In the East Boston elections for Boston City Councilor, replacing Sal LaMattina, North Ender Steve Passacantilli's camp believes their candidate is a shoo-in in East Boston. That remains to be seen ... The body of a miss- ing Suffolk University student was found in East Boston last week -- what's going on? ... The opioid epidemic is getting worse. The cops are doing their job, making drug busts at a steady rate, but the junk just keeps rolling in. Chelsea, next city over from East Boston, had several fatal over doses recently. The influx of drugs in the inner cities is at an all time high ... If the President farts the wrong way, the media is there to rate the size and smell and report his ratings plummetingll In the meantime, the Republican Party is a disgrace. Two major Republicans, Paul Ryan, and John McCain, have fought every proposal President Trump has brought to the table to help the working man. The mainstream media is another story, recently criticizing President Trump for failing to mention David Duke and White Nationalists in his first speech condemning the violent actions in Charlottes- ville, VA .... What's up with this new age, liberal spinning media? Are they deaf, dumb and blind? Also, bags of urine and feces were being flung around, but no one heard the media talk about that! Only President Donald Trump's speech was taken to task. Most logical people thought the President made his point!! These biased reporters need to get their act together, because the sane public doesn't listen to them anymore. People want the whole story, not opinions from liberal networks who decide to spin the story the way they want to interpret it! ... Question? Why hasn't the press made a stink over the drug dealers Barak Obama released from prison before leaving office that are believed to be now flooding our neighborhoods dealing drugs to our kids given the same coverage that Trump gets if he sneezes or farts to the dislike of the media? President Trump cannot get anything done in the White House because of his own Republican party and of course liberal Democrats, who want him out. What a pleasant sur- prise it would be to Americans if all these turncoat Republi- cans and troublemaking Demo- crats were to be voted out of office next time they're up for re-election ...
