Investigative report unfair, ill-advised

November 12, 2009
By

Fox Television tends to do a good job reporting the news. However an investigative report aired Tuesday night and purporting to show how some residents of the Chelsea Soldiers Home are being abused by an administration that doesn’t care, was, frankly, way off base, misleading and unlike anything we know to exist at the...

Welcome back Calvin Brown; and welcome to Mike Moronski and Anthony Pellegrino

November 9, 2009
By

We want to welcome to the political life at city hall one “old-timer” and two newcomers to the Chelsea city hall political scene. Calvin Brown knows the city hall scene and for a long time he was a part of it. His return to politics is like back to yesterday. Brown is a good...

Irene Grzybinski

By

We are very sorry to learn of the death of former Chelsea Provident Cooperative Bank President Irene Grzybinski. She died Wednesday morning. Ms. Grzybinski was the first female president of a major Chelsea Bank in the city’s modern history. She was a humble, quiet, able bank president who was well-known in banking circles here...

Get out and vote

October 31, 2009
By

Tuesday is Election Day and we urge all the registered voters in this city to get out and to vote. It is important. The expectation is for a very light turn out. Let’s reverse the expectation. Let’s come out in larger numbers and let the candidates know there is a voting public out there...

The best is yet to come

October 31, 2009
By

The new Demoulas Marketplace by itself is a fabulous project of inestimable economic value. With more than 1000 employees and at least that many vendors, the Marketplace is an economic juggernaut for this city. A payroll distributed once a week to 1,000 employees, most of whom live in Chelsea, gives an estimated $600,000-$700,000 to...

Chelsea since the fire

October 22, 2009
By

The October, 1973 Chelsea Fire marked the lowest point the city reached in its modern history. Not even the social, moral and economic collapse of the city in the early 1990’s, and the receivership that followed, can compare. In fact, the fire set in motion the ultimate demise of the city and brought it...

Capuano’s travels

October 14, 2009
By

The Boston Globe this week made a big fuss over our Congressman Mike Capuano’s $24,000 spent on congressional travel to foreign nations during the past few years. The inference, if one was to be drawn, is that Capuano, now seeking Ted Kennedy’s senate seat, has been profligate in spending government money during foreign travels....

The Chelsea Street Bridge

October 14, 2009
By

As odd as this may sound to those of us so used to the Chelsea Street Bridge as an ugly monstrosity – it is the gateway to East Boston and vice versa – the gateway to Chelsea. The new bridge going up is going to be a masterpiece of modern engineering and construction. There...

Galluccio’s mess

October 7, 2009
By

We like State Senator Anthony Galluccio. Since becoming senator, he has served this city as if it were his own – and he and his office are always ready to do the right thing for Chelsea. We respect Senator Galluccio because he works hard and he takes the job seriously. Bottom line, we are...

The Chelsea Housing Authority an example of excellence

October 3, 2009
By

It used to be, and it was not so long ago, when the Chelsea Housing Authority was riddled with ineptness and incompetence and saturated by the worst kind of political influence and nepotism. Not so today, and not so for many years already. Under the management of Executive Director Mike McLaughlin, the CHA has...
