GUEST EDITORIAL IS LABOR SECRETARY CLUELESS WHEN IT COMES TO TEXAS JOBS? by Sal Giarratani On August 31, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis was asked after zero jobs growth happened in August, "Why do you think there have been so many jobs created in the last decade in Texas." She responded, "Come again?" The reporter then asked, "The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas estimates about half of the jobs created in the U.S. in the last decade have been created in Texas. Why do you think that is?" Her response back was, "I haven't done a lot of research in terms of the economic growth in Texas." I kid you not. Apparently, why should she waste her time looking how a state with 8 percent of the nation's popu- lation has created nearly half of the jobs in the entire country over a 10 year period. Liberal Democrats keep saying most of these jobs are low paying jobs down in the Lone Star State, but when the United States experienced a zero net job growth in August, the first time that has happened since 1945, Democrats would be better off keeping quiet about those low paying jobs. After all, once again, if you pit those so-called low paying jobs against no jobs and 85 million Americans unemployed, which of those two kind of jobs would you like to have?

During the Golden Era of boxing, Tony defeated Johnny Saxton to become the undisputed Wel- terweight Champion at the famed Boston Garden, just a few blocks from his home in the North End. His epic battles with Carmen Basilio are considered two of the greatest matches in boxing history. Written in his own words with honesty and humor, Tony's autobiography touches upon the triumphs and tragedies that shaped him as an individual. The book details Tony's humble beginning on Fleet Street, his rise to the top of the box- ing world, and his days in Arizona as a successful nightclub owner. Nardo, Memoirs of a Boxing Cham- pion is also filled with many rarely seen photos, hand- picked by Tony, from his personal collection. * Queen Elizabeth {Continued from Page 1) REMINDER NEWNC Meeting Wednesday, October 12, 2011 7:00 PM @ Nazzaro Center (Date changed due to Holiday.)
