Happy Birthday, Mr. Piletti

You understand how way back when I graduated from senior high school? June 1937. Holy cow! What’s that, fifteen, seventeen years ago. Sev – let’s see, is that right? Seventeen, that’s right. Where’d everything go? I’m gettin’ old; November the eighth I’m going to be thirty-five years of age. Wow, time on goes, boy. Today Marty Piletti celebrates his ninetieth birthday. Marty and Clara Snyder married in 1955, after a nine-month courtship.

They bought a residence in the Bronx. Marty’s mother Theresa and Aunt Catherine remained on in the old place. Marty bought his boss’s butcher shop, which is still in business on Arthur Avenue, now Piletti’s Fine Meats. It was Clara who convinced Marty in 1962 to improve the name: “You’re a good butcher,” she told him. “People like coming to your shop.” Today, Piletti serves both the Arthur Avenue Italian community and faintly Bohemian customers from Manhattan.

Clara continued to teach chemistry in the New York City schools. She approved up the job in Portchester, but she does end up being the first female head of a technology department in the brand-new York City school system, at Theodore Roosevelt High School, Marty’s Alma mater. Clara and Marty have a girl, Diane (b. College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, and became a surgeon.

She lives and works in Englewood, NJ. George went to Fordham University. He analyzed briefly for the priesthood (like his father’s cousin in Chicago) but then became a brief history teacher at the Bronx SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL of Science. In 1988, he left teaching to take over the butcher shop and has never looked back.

He still makes his home in the Bronx. Clara retired in 1990; Marty, in 1991. A year later, they moved to Englewood be closer to Diane, her spouse Ranesh Singh (a pediatrician), and their two daughters, Linda and Stephanie, now in college. Remembering his mother’s disapproval of Clara, Marty used to joke with Diane, asking her why she couldn’t buy “a nice Italian boy.” Mrs. Piletti and Clara, by the real way, became very close. “You picked such a fine girl,” Marty’s mom once informed him.

Both Marty and Clara (now eighty-five) are active and alert. They enjoy reading, shopping, and watching the Food Network, the past history Channel, and Turner Classic Movies. No interest is acquired by them in Dvd disks. When they’re out walking, they still get stopped by people who ask if they’re that nice couple from the movies.

McCaw and Drajewicz argued Connecticut taxpayers will keep the entire cost of the borrowing under the GOP plan, while they said tolls will require out-of-state motorists and heavy trucks contribute to bridge and highway maintenance. Both cabinet officials said Lamont would be willing to authorize GO bonds to supplement transportation funding for three or four years within a larger deal to transition to tolls.

She and Drajewicz also defended Lamont’s decision to prevent the planned transfer of sales fees from car purchases from the general fund to the Special Transportation Fund after Fasano criticized the governor. The final legislature used a routine to gradually shift 100 percent of these tax receipts over the next five fiscal years. The governor’s two-year budget plan caps that transfer at the current 8 percent rate. It really is due to increase to 33 percent in the next fiscal 12 months.

McCaw said the amount of revenue is insufficient to maintain the transportation finance, and the exchanges develop a gap in the overall finance also. “The car sales tax transfer is not a solution,” she said. Drajewicz invited Republicans to meet and make a deal on a long-term arrange for transportation funding. “This isn’t about right or incorrect.
