Legend has it that if you kiss the Blarney Stone in Ireland you’ll be blessed with the Gift of Gab. Knowing some in this group, we think that’d be a bit of overkill! We can’t imagine them becoming more gifted in gab.  A large group of St. Francis de Sales parishioners from Rockaway made a trip to Ireland and a smart handful of them packed wisely. The Rockaway Times t-shirts, especially the green ones, had everyone in Blarney gabbing. Mark Spadaro, Father Jim Cunningham, Linda Spadaro, Eileen Davies and Pauline Kalish – you all look magically delicious!

We wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. ***** Don’t expect any final call on the NYS Assembly race between Stacey Pheffer Amato and Tom Sullivan this week. Ballots are still being counted and with this being a holiday week we expect no news on that front. The Queens Chronicle reported that just seven (7!) votes separate the two. Being so close, and with a lawsuit filed by Amato’s team, a recount is also expected. Let’s hope it’s sort…

For sports fans, it’s a time to watch the football game, cheer on your favorite team and kick back with a few beers. And no Turkey Day is complete without tuning into a holiday classic like, A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Oh, and let’s not forget about who retires early due t…
