It can happen in a large country like ours as it happened in that novel about those kids in the "Lord of the Flies." Push anyone up against the wall and anything can hap- pen, especially when we have thrown all our values away, when we tolerate and accept any and everything and when all LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street East Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MI12P83EA Estate of JEFFRY L.

Weaken that society foundation and you can take down a nation. When every- thing we do becomes relative to other things we do, we open the way for more can- cerous growths in society. Right and wrong become val- ueless. Good and bad be- come non-terms. Our island may have no flies on its rotten flesh of morality. Crowd us into a corner and we come out swingi!ng with both hands. Society has two choices. We can continue down this road of destruction or we can value the individual and try to remake our society back into generational stability. We can helplessly watch today or we can work toward a society, country and nation that values the individual. The next time you feel like a fly living on an island, put that book down and swat the fly before you get bit. It isn't too late for American values to flourish again. Those kids turned into ani- mals. It doesn't have to be our fate too. Cherish the good and disregard the bad. It is time for Americans to take that one small step for man and one giant leap for man- kind. And whatever you do, stay off that island where flies are lord.

MACKEY INTERIM CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER and EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Run date: 08/31/12 Clemens Will Pitch for The Sugar Land Skeeters Roger Clemens apparently doesn't think he's done yet with baseball. The 50-year- old Clemens has just signed with the Skeeters in the in- dependent Atlantic League. His first start was on Satur- day, August 25 in Texas against a Bridgeport, CT team. His fastball is only about 86 mph now, a long way from his Rocket Man days. Sugar Land is about 20 miles from Houston and close to home for him. He last played in 2007 for the NY Yankees at 45. He went 6-6 with a 4.18 ERA. Clemens has won 354 games in a 24- year career and his 4,672 strikeouts are third best in baseball history. Melky Cabrera Gets 50-game Ban It appears that Melky Cabrera's run for the MVP has come to a crashing end. The San Francisco Giants out- fielder was suspended 50 games on August 15 following a positive test for testoster- one, which ends his remark- able season. Cabrera leads the National League with 150 hits and is second in batting average. Cabrera's penalty was the first high profile player since last year's NL MVP Ryan Braun had his sus- pension overturned by an ar- bitrator last winter. Cabrera's production has increased the past three seasons with three different teams. In 2010 with the Athletics, he hit .255, with the Royals in 2011, he hit .305 and this season with the Giants he has been hit- ting .346. Cabrera also has hit 11 homers this season to date LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MI12P3293EA Estate of ELSIE P.

He will become a free agent at the end of this season and next season could end up on his fourth team in four years. Cabrera is the second Giants player to test positive and get sus- pended this season. Reliever Guillermo Mota was penal- ized for 100 games in May and became the third MLB player twice disciplined for testing positive. This past May, Cabrera set the Giants' record for most hits in the month of May, passing Willie Mays 49 back ifleT959. " Baseball on August 16 Back in 1920, shortstop Ray Chapman of the Cleve- land Indians was hit in the head with a pitch hurled by the New York Yankees Carl Mays and suffered a frac- tured skull and died the next day. His was the only fatality in baseball history ... In 1964, Curt Flood of the Cardinals had eight straight hits in a doubleheader against the Dodgers. That season, Flood helped lead the Cardinals to one of the great- est comebacks in baseball history by winning 18 of its last 19 games overtaking the collapsing Philadelphia Phillies who blew a 6 game lead with i i games to go. Hernandez Pitches Perfect Game On August 15, Felix Her- nandez pitched the Mariners first perfect game and 23 ra in baseball history beating the Rays in a 1-0 gem. The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner struck out the side twice in the same game and finished with 12 strikeouts. This was the third perfect game of this season. The White Sox's Phil Humber did it against the Mariners in April and Matt Cain of the Giants did it against the Astros in June. This latest perfect game was also the sixth no-hitter of 2012. More than half of all the no-hitters have come in the last 25 seasons.

Angels. Eventually, the homers that made him famous for the St. Louis Cardinals started coming along at a pace good enough for him to hit his 28 th home run of this season and 473 ru of his career on August 19. As of August 20 th, he is only two home runs away from tying Stan Musial and Willie Stargell for 28 th place of all-time. 1974 Was a Very Good Year for Nolan Ryan Nolan Ryan then pitching for the California Angels struck out 19 Detroit Tigers in a 1-0, 11 inning loss. Back that season, he struck out 19 batters in a game three amazing times. Remember Lufs Aparicio ? Back when I was a kid, this guy was the roadrunner on base. He played mostly for the Orioles and White Sox, but did finish up with the Red Sox at the tail-end of a great career. On August 21, 1963, Aparico became the first player in 18 years to reach 300 career steals.
