Happy Birthday to our good friend and former Assistant Editor Andréa Gregory. She’s a great journalist. A local guy who has grown up into a fine young man, married with a family, and is, from what we have been told, a hard worker, Happy Birthday to Jeffrey Lewis. Another fine young man celebrating this week is Andrew LaFaunte, a smart young man who is going to have a fantastic career ahead of him. A Happy Birthday this week to Sue Pye, a great lady and from a fantastic family. The Pyes go back generations here in Somerville. Another well known local is Tyler Hart, who’s big time into road races. We hope he has a great birthday this week. A Great Birthday wish to our buddy Eugene Leonard Jr., who, if you want to know about album collections, he’s the go to guy.   A Happy Birthday greeting goes out to Isabella Maria (Curtatone) Chiaravalloti who turns eleven years old this week. She’s also one of the famous Somerville “Villen” Pop Warner Cheerleaders and she’s also trying out for the Somerville Girl’s Softball Team.  She’s a very busy little girl and we wish her all the best on her birthday. Also, Happy Birthday to our good friend Somerville Police Officer Scott Gamble. Happy 58th Birthday to our good friend Congressman Stephen F Lynch, who is a great guy and a candidate for US Senate. Former first lady of Ward 1, Jean Roche, wife of Billy Roche, is celebrating a memorable birthday tomorrow on April 4. So, if you see her around town wish her the best. She looks great.
