        IN HONOR OF MICHAEL ZONE, MARY ZONE, AND THE ZONE FAMILY

                                 ______
                                 

                        HON. DENNIS J. KUCINICH

                                of ohio

                    in the house of representatives

                      Thursday, September 28, 2000

  Mr. KUCINICH. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to acknowledge the 
Neighborhood Social Club and Archives' posthumous recognition of former 
City of Cleveland Councilman Michael Zone and his surviving wife, 
former City Councilwoman Mary Zone for their contributions to the 
Italian American neighborhood that is part of the Mount Carmel West 
neighborhood. The organization will present the Giuseppe T. Focca Award 
to the Zone family on October 1.
  Michael Zone, whose family immigrated from the region of Campania 
near the City of Caserta, was among the early Italian families to 
settle in this westside neighborhood. Michael was instrumental in the 
early development of the current Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church and 
School and the development of Villa Mercedes, a senior citizen assisted 
high-rise.
  As a councilman, Michael Zone worked hard for the Italian American 
residents he represented. He helped many gain meaningful employment and 
assisted them with immigration and government services. He put his 
constituents first, and demonstrated that public service is a higher 
calling.
  The Neighborhood Social Club and Archives was founded by Rose A. 
Zitiello in 1993 to preserve the Italian American history of the 
neighborhood. Association President Sherri Scarcipina DeLeva has 
presided over the last three annual award presentations to Joseph T. 
Fiocca, Yolanda Craciun, and Father Vincent Caruso, who served as the 
parish's first pastor in 1926.
  Mr. Speaker, I ask my fellow colleagues in the U.S. House of 
Representatives to join me in honoring Michael Zone, Mary Zone, and the 
Zone family who have contributed so much to Cleveland's Mount Carmel 
West neighborhood and the city as a whole. Please also join me in 
acknowledging the contribution that the Neighborhood Social Club and 
Archives is making toward preserving the great heritage that the Zones 
and the Italian American community of Cleveland has made and continues 
to make.
