PAUL JEFFKO 217 W COTA ST SHELTON WA 98584-2263 THE ITALIAN-AMERICAN VOICE OF MASSACHUSETTS m (Formerly LA GAZZETTA del MASSACHUSETTS) VOL. 119- NO. 35 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, AUGUST 28, 2015 $.35 A COPY CONTEMPT FOR THE LAW Leads to Disorder and Death by Sal Giarratani On Wednesday morning this week, duringan on-air TV interview, a street reporter and her cameraman were gunned down by a former employee of that TV statio who was fired and reportedly blamed the targets of his ragefor being racist toward him. The interviewee was also critically shot just for being there. The police chased him down. He shot himself before getting captured and died later that morn- hag in the hospital. Senseless violence just keeps happening and much of it is racially motivated. I was shocked to hear the Governor of Virginia getting interviewed following this tragedy, and with- out knowing any of the facts, blaming the killings on not enough gun laws. At that time, he didn't know whether or not the gun he used was legally or illegally obtained. He couldn't even be human for a few hours without going into po'htical mode with his Democratic Party talking points. Never tet a good crisis go to waste, as Chicago Mayor Raul Emmanuel once said during his White House years. Looking back over the past few years we have seen race baiting from all the usual media sociopaths and sadly from right inside the doors of the White House. Ferguson, St. Louis, Chicago, Baltimore etc. Everything is a hate crime when it fits the progressive left agenda but, when it doesn't, it is just a mere killing. What happened in Virginia on Wednesday was purely and simply a racially motivateddouble murder. Violence will continue to happen until we restore the respect and rule of order. Without that we get disorder like the Virginia mur- derous attack. Black lives matter, white lives matter, and journalist lives matter. All lives matter. Law and order is the foundation of society. Without law and order, we can only look forward to more death and violence. It is time for our leaders on the local, state and national level to stand up for our law enforcement officers and for the law. ? i!!i!ilili!ii ii !i iiii iiiii !iiiiiiiii !i, , i iiiiiii i 7 @i): ::: There's a New Online Newspaper :: Conservative-leaning folks need to know that their sources of the unfiltered media have in- creased lately.

OPening cer- emonies will begin Friday, August 28 at 7:00 pm. The tradition and customs of honoring Saint Anthony of Padua in the North End of Boston date back to early part of the twentieth cen- tury and the large numbers of southern Italian immi- grants that reached the shores of America at that time. Hundreds of thousands of poor European irr/mi- grants flooded the urban cen- ters" of northeastern United States. In Boston these immigrants settled in the North End. These immi- grants brought with them the customs and traditions that they celebrated in their homeland for centuries. A group of men from the small mountain town of Montefalcione, Avellino, just east of Naples in the Campagnia region of Italy founded what is known as today as the San Antonio Di Padova Da Montefalcione, Inc. Since 1919, as is done in Montefalcione on the weekend of the last Sunday of August the Saint Anthony and Saint Lucy Societies and the people of the North End celebrate the Feasts of Saint Anthony and Saint Lucy. Each year the people of the North End invite everyone to celebrate with them as they honor their patrons Saint Anthony and Saint Lucy with colorful parades, religious services, strolling singers, live entertain- ment and of course an abundance of great Italian and American food. Begun in 1919, by Italian immigrants from the small town of Montefalcione in Avellino, Saint Anthony's Feast has become the largest Italian Religious Festival in New England. Named the "Feast of all Feasts" by National GeographicMagazine, this authentic Italian street festival has it all for people of ~every age: parades, strolling singers, : live entertainment, contests and religious ser- vices are held daffy. Visitors stroll the beauti- fully decorated streets sam- piing the best Italian street foods from 100 pushcarts enjoying arancini, sausage peppers & Onion, quahogs, calamari, pizza, pasta and of course zeppole, cannoli and gelato. Locations will feature the refreshingly crisp Belgian lager Stella Artois as the highlighted offering. For those in the mood for a glass of vino, World Wide Wines will offer a selection of fine Ital- ian varietals -- your choice of rosso or bianco of course. Guests can also browse the wide selection of souve- -nir keepsakes and mementos. The highlight of the Feast is the ten hour procession of the Statue of Saint Anthony through the streets of the North End accom- panied by devotees, numerous marching bands and floats. The Statue of the Saint returns to his chapel as confetti and stream- ers cascade from the rooftops. Other events include: The Filippo Berio Culinary Pavilion featuring cooking dem- onstrations and sampling from the North End and Boston's most fabulous restaurant, an annual Open Air Mass in honor of Saint Anthony, including the veneration and individual blessing of the Relic of Saint Anthony and the distribution of blessed Saint Anthony Bread. The magazine of Italian Food Wine & Culture said Saint Anthony's Feast is "a spectacle not to be missed!" Saint Anthony's Feast is held annually on the weekend of the last Sunday of August.
