NEWS BRIEFS (FROM ITALIAN NEWSPAPERS AND OTHER PUBLICATIONS) Compiled by Orazio Z. Buttafuoco THE BEST CHEF IN THE WORLD: A SELF-TAUGHT ITAL- I/. Nadia Santini has recently won the coveted first prize as the best chef, bestowed by the world British magazine "World's Best 50 Restaurants." She has a profound knowl- edge of food items, a deeply-felt attention to the land, to the place where she works and food preparation. Before she de- cided to dedicate her life to the stoves, in 1974 at the age of 20, Nadia-(28 today), born at Mussollino (Prov. of Vicenza), received a degree from the Biological Technical Health In- stitute at Mantova. She studied the Science of Nutrition, then a real novelty. She married Antonio, a year her senior, while both were studying Political Science at the Univer- sity. Both dropped out of the University's studies in order to promote a bigger project, i.e. to bring to an international level, now global, the restaurant, "The Fisherman" (il pescatore) which her husband inherited, located in the town of Runate, between Mantova and Cremona. At the time the place was a lodging-house, originally started by Antonio's grandmother, Teresa, in 1925 when it was known as "Wine & Fish." Antonio's grandfather used to go fishing, bringing home all kinds of fish, which became the main dishes. A lot began to change in the 50's, later, with the arrival of the newly-weds (in the 70's). But Nadia and Antonio began to change everything. Nadia took over the cooking, and con- tinued to stay put. In 1996 Nadia Santini was the first Ital- ian to get "3 Stars" from the prestigious magazine "Michelin." In the restaurant also worked the two sons: Giovanni 36, and Alberto 29. Giovanni graduated proudly from the Uni- versity of Piacenza studying the Science and Technology of Nutrition, while Alberto graduated from the University of Parma majoring in Economics and Marketing. To the ques- tion "What is your special dish?" The answer emphasized the general tendency toward "vegetarianism!" LONGEVITY IS POSSIBLE, BUT ONLY IF YOU EAT A LOT OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published recently the results of a study conducted at Stockholm, at the Karolinska Institute. There was no real surprise, for we often read that a diet richly based on fruit and vegetables provides many benefits to our organism. The fruit ought to be consumed between meals while the vegetables, and the greens, should be eaten raw. A group of 71,706 individuals, Swedish men and women aged 45 to 83, were the object of the research study which lasted 13 years, the passing of 11,000 was recorded -- mostly men (6,803) versus women (4,636). The director of the study, Andrea Bellavia, stated that the relation between fruit and vegetables has rarely occurred in other studies. It was found that a low use of fruit and vegetables/greens reduced lon- gevity with a very high mortality rate. The ideal dosage? A daily dose of 5 portions of fruit and vegetables/greens must be the rule.

A YES VOTE would entitle employees in Massachu- setts to earn and use sick time according to certain conditions. A NO VOTE would make no change in the laws regard- ing earned sick time.

So, now we have Coakley wanting to trans- form local government to in- clude voters who are both legal residents and actual citizens. I say why not let illegals vote too? After all, didn't someone once say, "Technically, it is not illegal to be illegal in Massachu- setts?" Last I heard, our federal constitution was still "the law of the land." Local gov- ernments cannot declare it null and void but it does clearly declare non-citizens voting null and void. Balance {Continued from Page I) Coakley's advocacy for the right of local communities to decide this issue of non-citi- zens voting in local elections is not surprising as any- thing is possible in the Peoples Republic of Massa- chusetts. We have a governor who seems intent on handing out Massachusetts drivers licenses to illegal immi- grants living in the state. We already have the endless lib- eral choir who think that in- state tuitions to illegals wanting to attend our state colleges and universities is something the framers of our Constitution would have supported had it been on their political radar This is all nonsense being pushed by liberals trying not just to elect liberals but change both the culture and law to suit their needs. Democrats, Republicans, liberals, conservatives and independents should be standing up together for our Republic and oppose any gov- ernmental transformation that weakens our Republic, the United States of America. You want a vote? Become a citizen. Ben Franklin's warning while exiting Independence Hall still stands, "We have a Republic, if we can keep it." • Res Publica (Continued from Page 2) "protectionist" who wants to take us back to the days of Smoot-Hawley (the high tar- iff of the 1930s). And that leads to my con- clusion: Today's "free trad- ers" do not believe in free trade. They believe in maxi- mizing imports. They dis- agree with America's social legislation, but not having a majority to overturn our child labor laws, anti-pollu- tion laws, and product safety laws, they seek to get around them by having us import everything from nations that lack such regulations. That's why for all their talk about the benefit to the American consumer of more cheap stuff, they say very little about foreign market openings for American goods. True free trade would be reciprocal. In fact, there are many world markets that U.S. companies would love to get into, but cannot due to tariff and non-tariff barriers. Free traders, if they really were free traders, would be complaining about those real foreign barriers to free trade. Instead all their complaints are about the U.S. imposing, or even con- templating imposing, some trade remedy, recognized under international law as an appropriate free trade- consistent, response to an- other nation's anti-free trade actions. "Free trade," as practiced in Washington, is one of the biggest frauds on the American people. It distresses me that many oth- erwise thoughtful conserva- tives have embraced this flawed ideology. • ............................. : • • 1st Annual • • " Roll the dice for CASIT [ "." • • • " CASINO NIGHT.
