Oct 12, 2012, The Patriot Ledger: Quincy’s Italian mutual aid society celebrates 90th anniversary

By Lane Lambert, QUINCY — They gaze solemnly from the 1920s photograph – three men in coats, vests and ties, flanked on the meeting-hall stage by two young women, one lifting a corner of the American flag, the other a corner of the Italian flag. They were among the founders of Quincy’s Torre Dei Passeri Mutual Benefit Society. Ninety years later, their ancestors and others are celebrating a landmark anniversary. At a time when other such charitable societies have long since disbanded and faded from memory, Torre Dei Passeri is holding its own – and still providing the family benefits for which it was organized. The group will hold its 90th anniversary dinner...

Oct 10, 2012, Pahrump Valley Times: Visiting legislators pick apart Romney’s debate rhetoric

By Mark Waite- Two legislators from Massachusetts, the state’s House Majority Leader Ronald Mariano and Steven Walsh, chairman of the committee on health care financing, flew to Las Vegas last week, then made a side trip to Nye County Democratic Party headquarters to debunk some of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s rhetoric.

He was running against a woman who was not as experienced and as articulate as he was,” Mariano said....

By Tovin Lapan- Typically, presidential debate viewership grows with each subsequent event. Yet, candidates don’t want to get off to a bad start. In 1996, viewership fell from the first to second presidential debate between Bill Clinton and Bob Dole after Clinton was viewed as the clear frontrunner. While the 2012 election may not be won tonight, it certainly can be lost with one slip of the tongue, not-so-subtle glance at a watch or subconscious sigh. Not surprisingly both parties were busy Wednesday framing the first presidential debate between President Barack Obama and GOP nominee Mitt Romney before the 90-minute showdown even started. Wednesday morning, Rep....

By Doug Johnson, Reporter-   Numerous volunteers gathered on Wednesday night at the Obama campaign office  on Charleston Boulevard  near U.S 95  to watch the first presidential debate.   Most who attended the watch party were happy with President Barack Obama’s performance.  A few of the volunteers, who worked with Mitt Romney in Massachusetts, said he wasn’t being completely honest. “I think what he (President Obama) needed to do was bring home what he has accomplished because they’re trying to attack him for not accomplishing enough. I think he highlighted a lot of issues that he’s worked on,” said Obama supporter...

Seven state representatives, including two who served on the conference committee that produced this year’s health care cost control accord, plan to travel this week on behalf of the Obama campaign to states where the president and Mitt Romney appear to be having their closest contests.
