Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 9, 201 1 NEWS BRIEFS NEWSP~ERS AND WHY THE NUMBER OF FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN IS SHRINKING IN ITALY. Recent statistics have disclosed that less children are born, especially in the Regions of the North. The couples with children, in Italy, are 9,588,000. Of these, 46.5% have a child, 43% have two children, and 10.5% have three or more children. One-parent families are 2,214,000. About 783,000 have a small child, and 88,696 of them have only the mother. The Regions with a single child are mainly: Liguria (58.6%), Toscana (58.6%), Emilia-Romagna (58.2%), Friuli- Venezia Giulia (57.1%), Umbria (54.3%), Piemonte (52.7%), Marche (52.1%), and Lombardia (51.6%). The European Union has published what the average number of children per-woman is: France (2.0), Sweden (1.91), United Kingdom (1.90), Denmark (1.89), Finland (1.85), Belgium (1.82), Holland (1.77), Greece (1.51), Spain {1.46), Italy {1.42), Austria (1.41), Poland (1.39), Germany (1.37), and Romania (1.35). HOW TO STAY HEALTHY: USE GOOD FOOD, AND DON'T RUSH WHEN EATING;. A restaurant owner at Canneto dell'Oglio (prov. of Mantova), Antonio Sentini, says that slow- ing down a little is a great thing, a sign of civility, of respect for the environment and, why not, a great pleasure. Santini, who loves biking, spends a lot of time, every single day, bicycling. Going through a city is especially a pleasure, look- ing around and observing things that is rather impossible to notice when driving a four-wheeled vehicle! In the era of the 'car', Santini still finds customers coming to his res- taurant coming by bike. Certain old traditions are hard to die, and we can learn still a good health lesson! FINANCIAL REFORM IN ITALY: CULTURAL INSTITU- TIONS ARE THE MAIN VICTIMS.; Months ago the Finan- cial Reform began to take effect, As time went on we began to learn how hard the cultural institutions, as well as the foundations had been hard hit, Many didn't get a penny from the state, especially the foundations, e.g., the "Fondazione Einaudi," Istituto Italiano di Studi Germanici (Italian Institute of German Studies), Istituto di Studi Filosofici (Institute of Philosophy Studies), Istituto Sturzo (the Sturzo Institute) which specializes in the research in the field of historical and political sciences, Fondazione Adriano Olivetti (the AdriAno Olivetti Foundation), Fondazione Croce, Centro di Documentazione Ebraica Contemporanea (center of contemporary Hebrew documen- tation), and many others. Because of the economic crisis the banks were unable to provide even small contributions or were less generousl Even the well-famous Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome (the experimen- tal center of the movie academy in Rome) has lost an im- portant financial support. This center has prepared future movie directors as well as script writers. A real shame!

HUB IS WOOING SEARS HQs Boston officials at City Hall are putting out the welcome mat for Sears after the Chicago-based retailer said it was ready to relocate its 6,000 employee home base reportedly to either Bos- ton or D.C. Mayor Menino and B.R.A. Director Peter Meade are both thrilled with the news that Boston is in the running for Sears' new headquarters. However, it also has been reported that Sears really has no plans to leave Chicago but is only using the threat of leaving to get Illinois lawmakers to give the. company more tax breaks.

TONY BENNETT'S NEW DUETS H ALBUM DUE OUT NOW I first heard about this new Tony Bennett album w~ile listening to Dick Robertson's late night radio show "Great American Standards by the Sea," which is carried on WPLM on 99.1 FM every Sat- urday and Sunday at mid- night right after Ron Della Chiesa's "Strictly Sinatra" on Saturdays and "The Great American Song Book" on Sundays. I've met Ron several times over the years. He is one classy guy who knows his ST. JUDE AND ST. ANTHONY NOVENA May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and for- ever. Sacred Heart of Jesus pray for us. St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for us. St. Jude, help of the hopeless, pray for us. St. Anthony, most loving protector and wonder worker, pray for us. Say this prayer 9 times a day and by the 8th day your prayer will be answered. It has never been known to fail. Publication must be promised. My prayers have been answered. Favor received. -/kT.P. ~ good music. His shows are a must listen. Getting back to Duets II, it was on the Dick Robertson show I first heard of the Sep- tember release. He men- tioned that the late Amy Winehouse sings with Tony on the album and Robertson played an old tune she sang back when she was about 21 years old. She sang from the Great American Song Book and her beautiful voice will be missed. She was to join Michael Buble, Carrie Underwood and Tony Bennett on stage in Los Angeles for a September 24 all-star gala concert in sup- port of "AARP's Drive to End Hunger" campaign. A terrific voice has been silenced. WJIB FUNDRAISING OVER FOR ANOTHER YEAR I heard the news on Sun- day, August 28, Bob Vickner has succeeded in his fund- raising efforts to keep WJIB 740 AM going for another 12 months of listener-sup- ported good music. Support- ers of the station have come through again as they have since 2007. Where else can one get good music with- out commercials but at WJIB? I'm sure there are 10ts of JIB listeners around these parts. One named Maria from Orient Heights comes instantly to mind. CAPOBIANCO SOUNDS BETTER THAN WHITEHEAD I bumped into Valentino Capobianco from Speaker Bob DeLeo's office the other evening while attending a meeting of the Knights of Dunkin' Donuts at the Ben- nington Street shop. He and a group of young Winthrop political types took our round table. As I joked with Tino about how long his name was, I told him if he ever ran for office, he would need two cars for one bumper sticker. Italians with short names like DeLeo don't have a bumper sticker problem but LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts ~ ~z~ ~ ~ ~3"r~ Trial .C~/~rt Middle'sex Probate an~ Family Court 208 Cambrid9~PStreet Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MIO8D3396DV1 DIVORCE SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION AND MAILING LILLIAN CRUZ VS.

Hey, at least Tino's family didn't anglize their name to "Whitehead." WHO DOESN'T THINK DINERS ARE COOL? I love the ambiance of diners. I think they're cool. The prices are always good as is the service and food itself. When I lived in Quincy years ago, there was Eddie's Diner on Route 53. I loved the place. Then it closed, got knocked down and replaced by a savings bank. Today, they still have diners in Quincy. There are two near each other in North Quincy. One is the Wheelchair Diner which looks like a passen- ger-train car and the other is "O.B.'s Diner" around the corner. Back in my younger days, Charlestown had two of them. One was a silver can called "Connolly's" near what is now Bunker Hill Commu- nity College and the other was a diner attached to the Local 25 Teamsters building in Sullivan Square. Up in New Hampshire, there are two not far from Newfound Lake. There's one to the left in Bristol which recently got a name change. The old name was the "Riv- erside Diner" and the other to the right was in Plymouth called the "Streetcar Diner" which actually looked like a streetcar from the old days. Recently, I found two new ones. There's "Babe's Place" in Attleboro to the south and "the "Lunchbox Diner" in Malden around the corner from Holy Cross Cemetery. I've tried "Babe's" and it reminds me of the old "Eddie's Diner" in Quincy. However, I have yet to sample the food at the "Lunchbox." Anyone out there know of any other great diners that need a plug right here?
