THE E-ZPASS VAN SCHEDULE: Saturday, October 11 th i0 AM- 4 PM Kowloons 948 Broadway Route 1 North, Saugus Saturday October 18 th 10AM- 4PM Market Bas- ket Chelsea, 170 Everett Ave., Chelsea, MA Saturday October 25 th 10AM - 4 PM Kowloons 948 Broadway Route 1 North, Saugus. Sponsored by Town office of Saugus Saturday November I 't 10 AM '- 4 PM Market Bas- ket Chelsea, 170 Everett Ave, Chelsea, MA E-ZPass is free to join and customers receive a tran- sponder onsite. E-ZPass, (formerly FastLane}, cus- tomers proceed through the dedicated E-ZPass lanes at the toll plaza without stop- ping or fumbling for cash because the toll is collected electronically through the use of a transponder at- tached to the windshield. Motorists no longer stop at a toll booth and pay cash for their Tobin Bridge toll. Tolls are collected electroni- cally through the E-ZPass transponder or via the Pay-by-Plate program in which a camera captures the license plate and the vehicle's registered owner is billed by mail. In addition to the sign up sessions listed below, you may also join E-ZPass online, or by phone, 877-627-7745. Transponders are also avail- able at Registry of Motor Ve- hicle branches and from AAA. In 2009, the Massachu- setts Department of Trans- portation (MassDOT) was created to unify the state's various transportation agencies. MassDOT now in- cludes the Highway Division, the MBTA and Rail Transit Division, the Aeronautics Division, and the Registry of Motor Vehicles. MassDOT is committed to providing a safe and reliable transporta- tion system to all those who travel in the Commonwealth and works to deliver excel- lent customer service. MassDOT has been nation- ally recognized for its inno- vative approach to transpor- tation, including the Accel- erated Bridge Program, the "Where's My Bus and Train?" apps and "Fast 14" work.

In order to hold the amount of people seeking to pay their respect it was decided that Mr. Albano be waked at East Boston High School where he spent most of his adult life. Mr. Albano was often referred to as the "Mayor" of East Boston because he was so well-known. He was unique with a heart of gold and went out of his way to help people that asked for it. His passion for politics and ability to get candidates elected was his greatest asset. Mr. Albano will be missed by the East Boston community ...

We want to welcome the fabulous Shriners Marching Band once again, thanks to the generosity of Chairman and CEO Richard Gavegnano of the East Boston Savings Bank who presented the Shriners with a check ... Parade volunteers put two years of work into bringing the parade to East Boston. The excitement the parade generates goes on for weeks prior to the parade. There are fundraisers and lots of preparations that include getting marching bands, floats, clowns, etc. Candi- dates seeking election and re-election look forward to marching in the famous parade. Parade committee volunteers deserve a huge round of applause for the time and effort put into this huge event ... New housing development brings magic to Boston's beautiful water- Mrs. Murphy... As I See It front in East Boston. But it's especially good to hear that the Boston Redevelopment Authority is allowing New Street waterfront develop- ers, Gerding Edlen to pay into a fund that will contrib- ute to affordable housing somewhere in the city in- stead of building the re- quired 15 percent of afford- able units on the New Street site. BRA officials explained this decision was made be- cause they felt putting the affordable component on the site would make the project financially "uninviting." The two building development will feature a roof top pool and fitness center and is expected to attract Boston workers with a five minute walk to the T ... Owners of Suffolk Downs always said if they didn't get the license to build a casino on their land, they would fall back on hous- ing, retail space and other amenities reminiscent of Assembly Row in Somerville. There's a strong possibility that is the direction of the land. East Boston residents that were fearful a casino would bring extra traffic will now be complaining over the traffic a retail, housing and other amenities will bring ...

Send- ing 3,500 ground troops to Africa to fight the Ebola vi- rus doesn't make any sense. Not only will many of these men and women contact the disease, they will also bring it back to this country. More importantly some will die from it. We didn't train our troops to fight diseases. What is Obama thinking??? The President is so discon- nected it's mind-boggling. Barack Hussein Obama has been advised to put boots on the grouhd in Syria to fight ISIS where innocent Syr- ians and Americans are be- ing beheaded and slaugh- tered by these madmen, but refuses to do so!
