Nicola De Santis (Continued from Page 1) American and the Amer- ican," he said. But, he also believes in the Italian- American community's re- sponsibility to keep the momentum going. He wants to work together with the community and is eager to hear any suggestions. According to Mr. De Santis, former consul general Giuseppe Pastorelli traced a path that he would like to follow, adding his own expe- rience and vision. "For example, Giuseppe was heavily involved with the Italian Cultural Center project. I truly hope it can happen," he said. The build- ing of an Italian Cultural Center is at the forefront of his priorities, as well as pro- moting Italian culture and language. "I think that the goal of the consul is to put together the different spheres of the community: the traditional one, the Ital- ian-American associations, the new Italians who arrived here 5, 10, 15 years ago, which is a different story than when Italians first emigrated here," he said, "but in a way they're very similar and they're two dif- ferent parts of the commu- nity. I think we should try to bring them together. The Italian Cultural Center can be a way to do that."

DeCristofam, Register of Probate Run date: 9/12/14 with the lieutenant gover- nor's race and will now team up with Coakley for the November election. Biggest winner up in New Hampshire was former U.S. Senator. Scott Brown who easily held off two primary opponents and will now face U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen in November. If Brown wins, he will be only the third U.S. senator to represent two dif- ferent states. Biggest winner in Massa- chusetts besides 35-year-old Seth Moulton was Maura Healey, who had to fight the political establishment to claim her upset victory. Biggest loser appears to be Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who threw City Hall support to Warren Tolman. Appar- ently, the voters did their own thing in this race. November 5 th now harkens. Let us see if the turnout grows and let us see how Coakley fairs against Baker. Republican Charlie Baker versus Martha Coakley will be a dozy. Will Grossman primary voters flip to Coakley or cross over to Baker?. Up on the North Shore, former State Senator Richard Tiesi, R-Wakefield, was preparing for his rematch with Tiemey after narrowly getting de- feated back in 2012. Rtmning against Moulton, Tiesi faces a steep challenge, taking on the charismatic newcomer in the Democratic Party. Biggest of losers on Pri- mary Day were the same 88 percent of registered voters who stayed home rather than participate in their democratic republic.

They will fit right in with the evolving history of Beacon Hill. (Photos by Norman Herr] The ongoing battle being waged by some within the Beacon Hill Community including the Beacon Hill Civic Associa- tion over handicap ramps along the neighborhood's side- walks sounds so silly. Many want the state and city to re-do the ramps which they believe are in violation of Beacon Hill Historic District guidelines. Should the new concrete ramps with plastic strips down at Charles Circle be replaced with so-called "materials that are appropriate" to Beacon Hill? These ramps are there to help the disabled. Do we want to go back in time to when no one saw the blind and disabled around them? Perhaps, we could, while we are at it, re- move traffic signals too, since they are a rather new devel- opment for public safety. With all the troubles happening in the news, battling handicap ramps seems so silly. Other neighborhoods like Bay Village and the South End worked with the city on the color scheme of the ramps and in the end, everyone seemed to be able to compromise on both aesthetics and safety. Why can't Beacon Hill do likewise? I am not against retaining the charm of historic Boston. Recently (Boston Globe, August 8), John Winske, execu- tive director of the Disability Policy Consortium, which had lobbied the City of Boston for improved accessibility said some voices within the Beacon Hill community stood in sharp contrast to other historic Boston neighborhoods, =I think there's a lot of people in that neighborhood who are used to getting their way. What makes me the most sad about this is that a year ago, we were one Boston. We rallied as a city. Now, the way this has played out, some of the very people who were injured on that day cannot visit that neighborhood." It is time for outspoken members of the Beacon Hill community to not forget the disabled and not forgot every Boston neighborhood is part of that One Boston. History and aesthetics cannot trump the rights of the disabled! WWW. BOSTO N POSTG AZ ETTE. C O M
