I thought that idea was lame but I still know that Rex Trailer has b~een a great ambass~ador for the Bay State over the years. Many of us boomers still re- member with great fondness our "Boomtown" days with Rex and Pablo. And who can forget Huey the Swan and Goldrush too? I caught up with Rex once again at the Columbus Day Parade over in East Boston and have a great photo to show for it. So to all you Rex Trailer fans out there, I'm one of you. SOUTH BOSTON TODAY NAMES BRIAN WALLACE MANAGING EDITOR South Boston's weekly newspaper is catching on big time with readers. Recently, my old friend John Ciccone named former State Repre- sentative Brain Wallace as the newspaper's first man- aging editor. I am glad to see in the wake of the Tribune's demise that Ciccone decided to publish his own news- paper for his neighborhood in the spirit of the Tribune. CHARTER SCHOOL BUYS OLD SAVIO Officials from the Edward Brooke Charter School are now set to remake the former Dom Savio High School its new home in East Boston. The school is planning a 475 student K-8 facility. The former Salesians Boys & Girls Club on Paris Street was opened as the temporary site of the Brooke School this year. The Savio site has been closed for several years and requires major renova- tions. It will become the per- manent home of the Edward Brooke Charter School for the 2014-2015 school year. WORCESTER SQUARE TREE LIGHTING SOON Over in my old South End neighborhood, the traditional Christmas tree lighting put on by the Worcester Square Neighborhood Association will take place on Sunday, December 2nd at 4:00 pm. Of course, it is now the Holiday Tree lighting since yuppies are so politically correct. VIENNA BOYS' CHOIR AT CATHEDRAL The Vienna Boys' Choir will be appearing at the Cathedral in the South End on Sunday, December 2nd and will be hosted by Ron Della Chiesa. For informa- tion or tickets, go to or call 617-542-5682. THANKS TO THE GLOBE A recent Sunday Globe spotlighted the horrible driv- ing record of the Patrick Administration's hire Sheila Burgess in 2007 as director of the Massachusetts High- way Safety Division. She has since been removed from that post and will be report- edly reassigned somewhere else in highway safety. The Boston Globe editorialized that this 2007 hire doesn't belong anywhere in a high- way safety job. OUCH! THE SHERIFF IS WRONG ON BROWN Suffolk County Sheriff Andrea Cabral is dead wrong concerning U.S. Senator Scott Brown's defeat. I read a quote from her in which she stated, "People care about the future of the community and they know there's a differ- ence between the future of Boston with Brown and with Warren." I care about the future of Boston and thought having an open-minded in- dependent voice in the U.S. Senate was a blessing for Boston. With U.S. Senator- elect Elizabeth Warren all we will get is another lockstep Democrat liberal. She will be good at taking orders from Harry Reid and when asked to jump will only ask, "How high?" CARMELLA'S MARKET GETS EASTIE WELCOME Carmella's Market, located at the corner of Everett and Cottage Streets, was the site of a recent ribbon-cutting. Formally known as Gloria's Market and owned by our pal Gerry for 51 years, it is now owned and operated by Clark Moulaison. Stop by and check out this new marketplace.

Landscape architect Warner Larson will do design and oversee the installation of this needed upgrading. ONE THOMPSON SQUARE MARKETPLACE This destination was al- ways just called the old bank building because it was the original home of the old Charlestown Savings Bank. A recent open house was held to unveil this new shop- ping destination. Check out this place, it isn't just an old bank building anymore. One place inside is my favorite to get flowers. No one does flow- ers better than the great folks at Bunker Hill Florist.
