INC - 217 W GOTA ST SHELTON WA glm84.2283 M IT~-~~ VOICE OF IC~S~ Li mJ (Formerly G ZE A del SACHUSE S) VOL. 120 - NO. 51 BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, DECEMBER 16, 2016 $.35 A COPY 46th by Matt Conti The Palotta Family, members of Eagle Bank, Ted Tomasone and members of the NE~. For 46 years, the North End Christmas Parade brings all that is good about the holiday season including a Santa who arrives first class via helicopter. The chilly but sunny weather brought out hundreds to Puo- polo Field for Santa's arrival, followed by the Christmas Pa- rade through the neighborhood streets. Four marching bands played holiday music while cos- turned characters took pictures with the kids. Of course, it's not a parade without antique cars and fire trucks. The parade is dedicated in memory of James "Jimmy" Pallotta and sponsored by the North End Athletic As- sociation in association with the Taste of the North End, Donato Frattaroli, Eagle Bank, Gisella di Paola, Nazzaro Center, North End Against Drugs and Mayor's Office of Tourism and Special Events.

As Far as the VA Goes The job of Secretary of Veterans Affairs is just the place for Scott Brown. As opposed to Carson above, Brown is qualified to run Veterans Affairs and to deal with the V.A.'s broken health care system. Rumor ] has it that Sarah Paiin is also being looked at for this I position, too. Hey, U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren thinks Brown is !iiii!iiiii iii!iiiiil ~iiiiiiiiiiii~iiiiiiiiiii!l best for the job. As for Palin, give her something else where she can do minimal damage. Perhaps Press Secretary for Veterans Affairs. Gosh, she sure knows how to talk. But that seems about it. Schwarzenegger Bad Choice The Celebrity Apprentice ~ be back on NBC this coming January 2nd and Arnold Schwarzenegger will be the new host replacing President-elect Donald Trump. I am not happy with this news, even though I have never watched this show or ever will. However, picking the Terminator to be the new boss doesn't sit well with me.
