Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 30, 2011 NOAH Holds 24th Annual Dinner (Continued from Page 7) believes that the legislature must continue to advocate for increased revenues for our community colleges be- cause it will lead to more jobs for our young people. He supports creating those "jobs of tomorrow" in both biotech and the allied health field. NOAH has a good friend in Speaker Bob DeLeo. He un- derstands quite well the role this and other community groups have on the future of our urban neighborhoods like East Boston. As someone who has coy- ered the news in East Bos- ton for almost 35 years, I know that the East Boston community succeeds be- cause .of the constant work of community groups such as NOAH and the consistent advocacy of elected officials such as: Speaker Bob DeLeo, Sen. Anthony Petruccelli, Rep. Carlo Basile and City Councilor Sal LaMattina. Kudos to Phil Giffee and all the folks at Neighborhood of Affordable Housing for a job well doneT I LEGAL NOTICE LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 Docket No. MI11D4742DR DIVORCE SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION AND MAILING TADESSE ASSEFA TEGENA VS.

I stopped by to see it on December 15th and it was standing tall and proud. Rumor has it, this miracle didn't happen either by accident or on 34th Street but due to combined efforts of Townies stopping by calling it a "Christmas Tree" over and over again. NICK'S NEW PLACE I often eat at Nick's Place in Winthrop but the other day I went to the new Nick's Bis- tro on Squire Road in Revere. The food there is also great and as Kostas told me, it don't cost a lot either. I had the stuffed shells and sausage and it was out of this world. I even showed him that I was semi-fluent in Greek by say- ing Nick's Bistro was defi- nitely not a "skartar" place. He laughed at that one. You want good food at good prices; you can't go wrong at any of Nick's places. BOB DeLEO: AS GOOD IT GETS I consider Bob DeLeo, the current Speaker of the House up on Beacon Hill a real friend. He has always been a voice and vote up on Beacon Hill for working families across the state. He has been a good Speaker and really is speaking for all of us. He has never forgotten his roots or the reason why he first ran for elected office. He is hon- est, sincere, caring and knowledgeable. He has been adding some much needed shine to the leadership post he holds in high esteem. He reminds me of another Speaker of the House back in my younger days. Another guy named Bob. I first met him back in the '60s when he was a state rep for Savin Hill Dorchester. His name was Bob Quinn. He would go on to be Speaker and then was elected the state Attor- ney General. He and I still to this day are friends. Both these Bobs have sev- eral things in common. Nei- ther forgot their roots and both see elective office as a trust from the people. SLICK WILLIE STILL AT IT I don't live in Lawrence. I have no plans to move to Lawrence. I don't vacation in Lawrence. The only time you'll find me in Lawrence is ff I got caught driving my car with my GPS on me. Latest news from inside Mayor Willie Lantiqua's kingdom. Some 10,000 signatures have been re-gathered to re- call Lantiqua but City Hall has a printing error on its part and new signature forms will be re-printed. Signatures will have to be re-gathered. How many times, Mr. Speakah must the people of Lawrence endure this %#*?. THE IOWA CAUCUSES The caucuses are coming up fast. Personally, I think this big political event is way overrated. At the moment it looks like Ron Paul might win the January 3 voting there. I have, however, been listen- ing to Simon Conway's Iowa reports on the Iowa Caucus on Radio 1200 Boston on the Jeff Katz morning show. Conway is a very unique guy. A British, conservative, Jewish, journalist who loves to wear his cowboy boots. He's informative and quite enter- taining too. NORTH END CHRISTMAS FUND LUNCHEON USUAL SUCCESS This year's North End Christmas Fund Lunch feted former Senate President Bobby Travaglini for his "years of service and contri- butions to the neighborhood." Mayor Thomas Menino was also on hand to present Donato Frattaroli, owner of Lucia Ristorante with the "Ferdinand Carangelo Hu- manitarian Award." DOWN IN NEW HAVEN It seems Mayor DeStefano of New Haven is trying to engage the I0,000 or so illegal's in his city. He is even filing legislation at their State House to allow undocu- mented New Haven residents the right to vote in city elec- tions. He wants to engage them in the community. Nice gesture but totally illegal. If he wants tO "engage" then have city government help them with the process of being in New Haven legally. NO CELL PHONES AT ALL The National Safety Trans- portation Board is now seek- ing to change the law ban- ning Use of all cell phones at all times while driving. Isn't the job of the NSTB to inves- tigate horrible crashes, land, sea and air? Why does gov- ernment keep trying to save us from ourselves? We don't need Mommy Government protecting us from everything all the time. Why stop with cell phones? Why not ban the drinking of soda and coffee while driving? Why not out- law car radios too? CONDOLENCES GO OUT TO THE BEASON FAMILY Joel E. Beason, Sr., 70, hus- band of Susanne (Neubauer) Beason passed away on Fri- day, December 16th in Old Lyme, Connecticut at the home of his daughter Wendy Gavin. He was born in Titusville, PA. He graduated from Slippery Rock State Uni- versity where he was a three sport athlete playing football, basketball and track. He re- ceived his master's degree in education from Southern Connecticut State Univer- sity. He resided in Florida. He is also survived by his chil- dren: Joe Beason, Jr., Wendy Gavin, Gary Beason, eight grandchildren and Anne Zimmerman his sister. He was also a foster dad to five boys. I never met him but I work with his son Joel Beason, Jr., and have heard of his father's battle recently with pancre- atic cancer. There is no good time to die for those left be- hind. Now he will live in their memories forever and as long as they remember, he truly lives. SANTA I - SAUGUS 0 The politically correct police took a big hit up in Saugus as Santa Claus has once again won the day and rode his fire truck to the Saugus public schools to the enjoy- ment of all but a few who un- successfully tried to suck all the joy out of Christmas. Ho, ho, ho, Santa rides again. America has lost its way so badly in the past 30 years that now even Santa is called a religious figure. And we thought the fight over the "x- mas" terminology was the worse things could get, eh? THANK YOU North End Athletic Associa- tion, North End Against Drugs, the Nazzaro Center and St. Agrippina Society for all they do for the North End children for all these years. In the end, all that counts is how strong we all work to make our communities strong and always safe, espe- cially for our children. MURPHY SO RIGHT ON FEENEY APPOINTMENT The Boston City Council recently appointed former 9-term City Councilor Maureen Feeney to the posi- tion of City Clerk. While many in the media lashed out at the City Council for a seemingly bag job, I think the City Council made the right choice to replace, the out- going Rosario Salerno who Dapper O'Neil dubbed "Sister Sunshine." City Council President Steve. Murphy defended Feeney getting the nod from her i former colleagues and said she was the best candi- date for the job. This was not a joke appointment. The vote was 10-1 with Charlie Yancey voting for another job appli- cant and Tito Jackson not voting due to what he called a lack of "transparency" in making Feeney the new clerk. I've known Maureen for most of her 18 years on the city council representing Dorchester's District 3. She was a great voice and vote for her constituents and will be an effective City Clerk, She was more than qualified for this appointment. As for the issue of perform- ing marriages during City Hall work hours, Council President Murphy and City Councilor Michael Ross have presented an ordinance be- fore the council in the next session next month. An ordi- nance by the way I fully endorse. PETER BLUTE NEW DEPUTY GOP CHAIRMAN Former US Congressman Peter Blute is back in poli- tics after just being appointed deputy chairman of the Mas- sachusetts Republican Party. Since last in the public sec- tor, he spent seven years as a radio talk show host at WRKO in Boston and five more "years at WCRN in Worcester. His job will be to help recruit candidates, delivering the GOP message and media voice. There's new blood running the Bay State GOP and hope- fully with new blood will come new ideas, focus and action in re-building the slumping political party.
