TUESDAY November 8, 2011 Your vote does count ... Reflecting on an Old SDS Activist's Death Back when I was in college (1968-72), campuses were filled with all kinds of political folks. One of the largest groups was campus radicals Students for a Democratic Society. Ironically, What they did best was to shout down those they disagreed with over the War in Vietnam. They were most famousf0r shutting down campuses and taking over administrative offices. .... Recently, Carl Oglesby passed away at age 76, "He had been elected president of SDS back in 1965 at age 30. He once told an audience, "Revo- lutions do not take place in velvet boxes. They never had. It is only the poets who make them lovely." It was a crazy time on American campuses (Continued on Page 10) Anthony C. Simboli Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from the City of Chelsea Anthony C. Simboli, a principal of the real estate development company ACS Development was presented the Lifetime Achievement Award from the m. City of Chelsea at the 10 th Annual All Chelsea Awards evening. Over the past 27 years,. Mr. Simboli has been one of the City's most loyal, pas- sionate and dedicated sup- porters putting significant sums of capital to risk over and over again demonstrat- ing his belief in the City. Initially, he did it when few, ff any, had the courage to do so. He has been a champion of Chelsea and is ever so proud of the winning team it is today. Mr. Simboli graduated from Boston College with a Bach- elor of Science in Chem- istry and a Masters in Phi- losophy in the same year. So far. he is the only known person in the history of Bos- ton College to have done so. It was out of need as much as talent that he was able to do both. As a kid growing up in the North End, he always knew he wanted something different. Determination and infinite amounts of hard work led him to Boston Col- lege. An education, focus and perseverance coupled with luck created the opportuni- ties that followed thereafter. He joined the CIA in the early 1950's. He moved to Wshington DC and then 1ater Japan, leaving behind his new bride. His hard ork and intelligenc e earned ;ihim a stellar reputation and ]many significant assign- :-ments. He was young, at the . top of his game and there were few opportunities re- maining without him buy- ing some time. who knows An- nderstands that he "sit around and wait" so as luck would have it, he gained access to his personnel records in which an evaluation said, "the sky is the limit for this officer if he were in private busi- ness". In the late 1950's, Anthony returned to Massa- chusetts where he bought a drugstore for $55,000 and thus began his career in business and real estate. From drugstores, he opened convenient food stores.

Ceremony was held on Saturday, October 15, 2011. Left to right: Franco Vitiello, Pasquale Luise, Sal Biamante, Deputy Consul General Luigi Munno, Lino Rullo, Irmagard Aurilio and a contingent from the Nazionale Marinai d'Italia. (Th e following are the remarks given by  Deputy Consul General Luigi Munno during  the Fort  Devens Memorial Service) * We are again here for this moving ceremony to remember our two Italian soldiers (concetto aleo e agostino barbetta) and twenty German soldiers. Fort Devens is a place where history, with all its contradictions and mistakes, has marked forever the life of a generation (for many of us, the generation of our fathers). A reminder of where many Italian and Germarl soldiers, captured in North Africa and Italy during World War II spent a part of their lives after the war where they were first soldiers and then prisoners. Italian and German prisoner s started to share tolerance and pluralism in the land of freedom. The life experiencing the friendship and under- standing of American people. Some unfor- tunately died and today we want to honor the ones buried here. We should give them our respectful trib- ute of affection by our countries, now that our countries are free Democracies. I am sure that all the Italian and German prisoners who experienced the same des- tiny in 27 camps in the United States of America probably never felt like real pris- oners (in the worst meaning of the word) and Americans perhaps never looked at them as real prisoners. Let the memory of the Italian and German prisoners in Fort Devens be a warning to multiply always our efforts in building a world where our sons can be free without being destiny of these soldiers were different: twisted and muddied by blind prophets of,war. some of them found love and their children Long life to the eternal friendship between now live here. Some were able to change , Europe and America.
