Some residents are asking who sets the boundar- ies in East Boston as to which civic associations can or cannot represent outside their areas. Can civic groups be extended to areas of East Boston with no representation; and are civic groups even legal??? With the building boom in East Boston, absentee landlords with connec- tions to permits are selling off their property to developers with the permits, and/or buying and flipping property, making mil- lions while destroying perfectly fine neighborhoods. Residents get shoved aside while four- to nine-story apartment and condo buildings are being built practi- cally in their back yard, leaving them without sun, air quality, or airspace, and taking away their quality of life and having NO INPUT into the matter if .. As I See It their section isn't represented by a civic group! Some of these victims, are lifelong residents, community activists, etc .... and have now found themselves victims of greedy property own- ers! ... The stabbing of a Paris Streef man is stirring up a lot of anger in East Boston. Resident gossip is that the house where the young man was stabbed was an alleged crack house with lots of activity. Crime is rising in East Boston, and its feared many yuppies planning to live in high-end rental units will be looking elsewhere ... Be pre- pared for a ban on plastic bags coming in the future. Boston is exploring the possibility in the hope of some lawmakers in the Bay State, who are considering prohibiting most retailers from offering customers the thin plastic bags, citing the myriad of environmental hazards as- sociated with them. There are currently 35 cities and town with bans on the bags ... Sup- porters of Republican candidate Donald Trump are getting fed up with how the media, and some Democrat and Republican Party members are treating him. Admittedly he says what he's thinking, and 99 percent of the time the media puts a spin on itl The biggest joke coming from the Republican Party is that Bill Weld, former governor of Mas- sachusetts many moons ago, may be running for President as a Libertarian. The Estab- lishment is so against Trump, they~l pull any cat out of the bag to run against him. In reality, Trump is just saying what those who invested in this country are thinking! ... Cat lovers will soon be able to treat their cats to an afternoon, or evening out. A resident of Hull, Diane Kelly, will be opening the first cat care in Boston, named "Purr," soon. A tentative lease was signed re- cently with an expected opening date in January. The location is still to be announced, noting a long stretch of planning, hir- ing, and approvals ahead. Her plans are to put feline guests and residents first, and include feline yoga classes, a paint and sip event, and hosting cat res- cue groups to discuss kitty wel- fare. The cafe will be equipped with floor to ceiling climbing structures for the cats to enjoy. Welcome to the 218t century! ... Till next time!! The Wakefield Lodge of the Sons of Italy Hosts On Friday evening, August 19th, President Paula Sasso of the Wakefield Lodge, hosted the Sons of Italy Culture/His- torical Commission and other local Lodges at a Stoneham Theater Italian-American musi- cal extravaganza. Paula worked with the Stoneham Theater to ensure that the Sons of Italy did not miss the concert provided by the New York City based "O Sole Trio." The Caira fam- ily from the Wilmington Lodge came to the event, as well as nine members of the Culture/ Historical Commission. Paula's Wakefield Lodge had quite a few members there. Stoneham Center has won- J by Dr. Dean Saluti and Marjorie Cahn derfui restaurants within walk- ing distance of the Theater. Be- /f DIAMONDS 1 I ROLU | ESTATE JEWELRY [ Bought & Sold Jewelers Exch.

The Pasciuto family, Frank, Mina and Cynthia, con- vinced other Renaissance Lodge members, Dr. Lori Azzara, Dr. Dean Saluti, and Marjorie and Susannah Cahn, to join them for dinner at Melissa's, which is right next to the Theater. Even though Melissa's is not an Ital- ian restaurant, Dr. Saluti was still able to order "baby shells" with shrimp and scallops in a garlic and oil sauce. The meals \ were spectacular! We recom- mend eating at these wonderful Stoneham Center restaurants before going to the Stoneham Theater. The performance itself was surprisingly innovative, and was definitely at the Broadway level. =O Sole Trio" consists of a husband and wife team (he's from England and she's Italian- American) and a tenor from Italy. They also had a cellist accompanying them. The Eng- lish husband played the piano and violin. His piano skills were virtuosic. We were amazed by himl Then, in the middle of the performance, he played the violin and piano at the same time - absolutely amazingl The Italian-American wife was a beautiful lady with a strong soprano voice and a great per- sonality. She sang everything from Italian opera to jazz and doo wop. The Italian tenor was from Naples, and was full of life as he blasted out Italian favor- ites in both Italian and English. The audience was mesmerized. Thanks to Paula Sasso, the performance was introduced by recognition from the stage of the Sons of Italy in the audience. We felt very special. The Sons of Italy Culture/ Historical Commission adver- tised this great event to aU of the local Lodges. Don't miss our future events.
