POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 14, 2012 Page5 Brothers Richie & Arthur Alba 37 Sheafe Street, North End, Boston JUDEAN LANGONE Scholarship Foundation Fundraiser "To give is just not a happening, it is a joy" -- Judean Langone The Langone Family would like to thank all of the community for your support during our family's loss. We loved and will miss Judean Langone. Special thank you to Anthony Sarno, Jr. The Family has started the Judean Langone Schol- arship Foundation to pro- mote continued passion for the students who strive to master the studies of Art and Humanities through perse- verance and education Most of you remember Judean as the quirky lady that paced the streets of the North End doing errands. In the words of Janet Gillardi, "God must of needed an errand done on July 20 th when he called Judean home. But for those of you who are readers of the Post- Gazette and for those of you who knew her well -- first and foremost she was a poet. We discovered an extremely important body of her work spanning 52 years that we hope to publish. On September 29, 2012 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at The Nazzaro Center we will conduct our first Annual Rummage Sale in Judean's honor. A raffle will be held for two Bruins tickets offered by Atty. Joseph P. Franzese; a $100 gift certificate spon- sored by Riccardo's Restau- rant, and a $50 Visa card donated by Madeliene Lan- gone. There is something for all: jewelry, antiques, books and baked goods. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to St. John and The Elliot Schools. We are still looking for donations, please call Beth 857-312-0086 to schedule a pick-up, or mail donations to: Langone Scholarship Foun- dation, P.O. Box 130363, Boston, MA ..02113. Although Judean never had children of her own, she found the child in all of us, and taught us all how to nurture a dream. Thank-you, see you at the Rummage Sale.

"BAD OFFICIALS ARE ELECTED BY GOOD CITIZENS WHO DO NOT VOTE." -- George Jean Nathan Elizabeth Langone Rattigan President and Founder A Sudden Downpour by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari We have all had days in which nothing seems to go right, they come when we least expect them, when they arrive they announce them- selves in small ways that gradually gather into an ava- lanche of misfortune. It was just a week ago when "one of those days" came our way; it was the type of day that made you want to jump back in bed, rewind the tape and start all over again, but it ended in a very unexpected way. It all began at breakfast when the toaster decided this was the morning it would "conk out," you expect these things to happen, but do not expect a second appliance, a sympa- thetic can opener, to "give up the ghost" in the same morning. Next came the dish that seemed to walk itself off the kitchen counter smashing into dozens of fragments, fol- lowed by the aspirin to chase the headache caused by the toaster and can opener that fell to the floor and seemed to immediately disappear, of course, it just happened to be the last aspirin in the house. It was at this point that we knew this was going to be "one of those days" but fig- ured if we act cautiously we might avoid what turned out to be the inevitable. Having survived breakfast, we made our way to the car, for a quick trip to the airport to pick up a friend. The sea- gulls quickly made it clear that we were still fully engaged in "one of those days". The car seemed to be the object of some serious aerial bombardment; it was covered from front to back with their droppings. We had the choice of washing the car and being late for our pick up or suffering the embar- rassment of a really nasty looking car, we settled for the latter deciding it was better to be on time, chalk- ing it up to just one more minor disaster. We picked up our friend who managed to make it to Boston from Cali- fornia unscathed only to be frighten out of his wits when we had to slam on our breaks to avoid plowing into some guy changing lanes without signaling. Things continued to go downhill during the after- noon, the slice of pizza that landed on a pair of white linen trousers, a cup of coffee that washed it away. Late in the day, we decided to try our luck with another cup of coffee. Having had our coffee, we were about to leave the hotel when some- one shouted out "it is pour- ing outside." A monsoon was taking place just outside the window and of course we had left our umbrellas at the apartment. Ten minutes into the monsoon we made our way to the rear entrance of the hotel where a large crowd, sheltering from the storm, had gathered and seemed to be having a great time. A large puddle that was more a small lake had formed at the entrance that quickly became the catalyst for an impromptu reality event. People entering the hotel would approach the puddle, stop, and wade through in many different ways. There was the guy who daintily picked his way through on his toes that (Continued on Page 13) k,,, First Day ,f School Eliot School Principal Traci Walker Griffith welcomes Santino Blazo of the North End to the Second Grade.
