I contacted Father Matthew Green at Holy Parish about setting up a way to donate in honor of Paul Frontiero III.

As you know Paul the III went on medical missions to the Dominican Republic and was scheduled to return there in two weeks time.  In honor of the way Paul III gave of himself all the way through his life we set up a place where people can contribute.

Here are photos from Paull III last visit to The Dominican mission-


Father Matthew wrote back  with this information-

Video- Sista Felicia’s Gorgonzola Pasta Dish On The GDT Website Today

October 11, 2011

Gorgonzola is key in this pasta dish


By Times Staff

Gorgonzola is a favorite cheese to cook with or serve in many Italian homes. It is popular in risotto and on polenta but perhaps nothing is as popular as making this cream sauce and serving over pasta. This is one of Felicia Ciaramitaro Mohan’s favorite family recipes. Like many, she prefers serving over a short tubular pasta such as penne instead of something like spaghetti or linguine.

Gorgonzola is a blue cheese that originated in Italy sometime around 800 AD, having been originally made by hanging the cheese moulds in large caves to ripen. Today the cheese is manufactured by injecting the moulds right into the cheese as it begins to age. Traditionally, Gorgonzola is made with raw cow’s milk, although pasteurized and sheep’s milk versions of the cheese are also available. The greenish blue penicillin mould in the cheese imparts a very distinctive sharp and spicy smell that contrasts with the creamy white cheese surrounding it.

Sundown, Moonrise, and Sunup Eastern Point Gloucester Video From Kim Smith


Kim writes-

Looking for butterflies on Eastern Point and videotaping the sun setting as the moon was rising. I passed Niles Pond on the drive home and stopped to admire the moonglow over the water. The following dawn brought flaming red skies, a cygnet plaintively searching for its family, and a startlingly large (at least 2 feet in height) Black-crowned Night Heron. Quawking loudly as the sun began to rise, there was a half dozen more roosting in a nearby tree.

Old Salt, circa 1890

Old Salt, circa 1890 Anonymous/ ©Fredrik D. Bodin
I love this photograph, and affectionately call the subject  “Old Salty.” I like it so much it’s my profile picture on Facebook. This is a classic Gloucester fisherman image, with oilskin, sou’wester hat, and old fashioned beard. What’s really striking is the far away look in his eyes. He’s seen it all: Weather, endless ocean, severe hardship, and extreme danger. The portrait is carefully posed and lit – probably taken for the tourist trade. I was told that Old Salt could be Jessie Bates or Rufus Bates Parsons, and was taken in Gloucester.
If you know Salty, please let me know. In the meantime, today’s tourists who have seen my Facebook page will come to the gallery looking to meet the fisherman with the beard.

Roseway on the Railways

Hi Joey,

I walked to the end of Rocky Neck on Tuesday and found the Schooner Roseway hauled up on the rails. She sailed into the harbor on Columbus Day.  She’s pretty easy to identify under sail due to her dark red sails. The crew members that I spoke to told me that they’ll be here about a month before they set sail for their home port in Saint Croix, USVI.

The Roseway is owned and operated by the World Ocean School, who uses the vessel as a base for their educational programs that are designed to educate, inspire and encourage the value of teamwork. They offer Summer Day Programs for kids in Boston & multiday expeditions worldwide.  When in Saint Croix, weekly academic programs that focus on math, science, language and history are offered to  junior high school students.  She was built in Essex at the James’ Shipyard and has a wonderful history which you can read through here:

Rest Easy Paul Frontiero III

As some of you may or may not know by now.  Our Paul Frontiero and his wife Cathy lost their son the night before last in a senseless act of violence in Nashua New Hampshire.

Paul the III just like his Father and Mother touched so many lives in a positive way.  Paul Frontiero the III was scheduled to leave for the Dominican Republic on a medical mission in just two weeks.

He died trying to save the lives as others, selflessly.  It was the way he lived his life, trying to help others.

The Story from the Union Leader

A local emergency medical technician died saving two women being attacked outside their apartment building, his mother said.
Paul Frontiero III, 27, was stabbed to death Sunday night; police are still searching for the man or men involved.
Cathy Frontiero of Gloucester, Mass., said her son heard a commotion outside his residence about 10:30 p.m. and went out to investigate. Police told her that two women were being harassed by a man or two men who kept driving by 13 Spruce St.
“When he went out, the guy from the car had a knife to a girl’s throat,” Cathy Frontiero said. “Paul jumped him to save the girl’s life. He died a hero.”
Police say the car sped away after the attack. Frontiero, a Londonderry High graduate who worked for EasCare Ambulance Service of Dorchester, Mass., was later pronounced dead at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center. Jill Arnold, 29, and Kathryn Libby, 29, both of 13 Spruce St., also were injured in the attack. Arnold suffered minor cuts, and Libby suffered stab wounds not expected to be fatal, according to the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office.
Cathy Frontiero said her son knew the women, and they all lived in the same apartment building. Police have not revealed much information to her and her husband, Paul Frontiero Jr., she said. “The police said it was a random drive-by incident,” said the victim’s mother.
While the loss of her son, a 2003 Londonderry High graduate, is unbearable, Cathy Frontiero said it is somehow comforting knowing that he potentially saved two young women.
“In his short life, he did a lot of incredible stuff. Everybody loved him,” she said. “He was such a good kid.”
Paul Frontiero III studied at the New Hampshire Technical Institute in Concord and previously coached youth lacrosse in Gloucester, Mass.
In high school, he played lacrosse, baseball and football..
He is one of four sons, according to Cathy Frontiero. On Oct. 20, he was to leave for a medical mission to the Dominican Republic, she said, adding it would have been his second trip there to help the less fortunate.
“He liked living in New Hampshire, and never talked about the crime in Nashua,” she said, explaining as a paramedic in Boston and Dorchester, Mass., he had witnessed a lot of crime.
The EMT was studying to become a paramedic, according to his mother, who said he had a passion for helping others and died doing exactly that. An autopsy was to be performed Monday afternoon.
Crime tape surrounded the house on Spruce Street Monday, as police placed evidence markers on the street and driveway.
A portion of the road was closed while authorities investigated.
A neighbor, who declined to give his name, said he was outside when the commotion began Sunday night. He said it appeared to be a minor dispute, and he was surprised to learn that someone had died.
Investigators from the state Attorney General’s Office have classified the case as a homicide.
“His assailant was in a car with at least one other person and fled the scene of the attack. He remains at large,” a news release from the AG’s office said.
Kenny Demers, who volunteers across the street from the homicide scene at the Grey Nuns Thrift Shop, said the news is sad and disconcerting.
“This seems to be happening more often in Nashua,” Demers said. “When I was a kid, we did simple pranks, but now there is so much crime with knives and guns.”
Demers said he worries about the women volunteers at Grey Nuns, and helps out so there is a male presence around in case of trouble. The neighborhood has become unsafe, he said.
“We hear of these things happening too often around here, and it is upsetting,” Demers aid.
Authorities are asking anyone with information about the attack to call police at 594-3500, or the Crimeline at 589-1665.
Cathy Frontiero hopes that her son’s murderer will be identified and arrested quickly. Many relatives gathered at her home in Gloucester, Mass., on Monday to support one another and mourn their loss.
“I am trying to hold it together. We have a big Italian family, so that helps,” she said.
George Gilpin, CEO of EasCare Ambulance Service, described Frontiero as a selfless and dedicated employee who worked with extreme professionalism and compassion.
“His life was senselessly and prematurely taken away by this tragedy,” Gilpin said. “He truly will be missed by all.”

.Paul Frontiero Jr is loved by his many many friends, you can view the testimonials by his friends here at his facebook page

Paul writes-

In 2006 he walked the greasy pole dressed as a pirate. and some photo’s from the dominican republic mission drinking with the nuns in the dominican and with his dog bone. He was supposed to go on a medical mission with the Gloucester Holy Family Parish to the Dominican in two weeks. They’re saying a special mass in the dominican today where he was supposed to go.
thanks Paul
