My sister's next door neighbor is a killer!!!!

OK, I am besides myself. I just can't believe it. How freaking incredible this is.

Do you know who Howie Carr is? He is a journalist, and a radio talk show host here in the Boston area. He wrote a book about the Bulger Brothers. Whitey Bulger is FBI's most wanted. Whitey took over a gang called the Winter Hill Gang. Before him, was a man named Howie Winter. Whitey ratted him out to the FBI, and he went to prison. Whitey then became top dog.

My sister just moved back from Kentucky 2 months ago. She is renting a townhouse in Millbury Ma. Friday, I heard a caller on the Howie Carr show talking to Howie about Howie Winter. Howie(Carr) said he was living in Millbury.

Yesterday, my sister hosted our family Christmas party. We have a LARGE family, and she lives in a townhouse. Major parking dilemma. So, I parked across from my sister's unit, and she told me I had to move. Her next door neighbor had come out and moved his car to the end of the parking lot and told me to use his spot. I was very grateful, and told my sister she had a VERY nice neighbor. Later, we were sitting around talking, and my sister mentions that her neighbor is an ex-con. My ears perked up. I asked her what is name was. She says "Winter". NO FREAKIN WAY!! I said is his first name Howie? She wanted to know how I knew.

She lives next door to a very nice man named Howie Winter!!! OMG. She showed me the gift baskets he and his wife gave them. One was a gourmet cookie platter that could not of cost less than $60 and the other has to be a $300 basket chock full of gourmet coffee and hot chocolate.

I have the book The Brother's Bulger that Howie Carr actually signed. Now I am thinking of asking Howie Winter to sign it also!!!

I guess the movie stereotype of mafia bosses is true. They are very generous!!!

BTW, the weirdest thing of all? My sister's last name is Spring, and she shares a wall with the Winter's.

Our neighbor across the street, who just moved in in August, was arrested several weeks ago for jeans, purse counterfeit importing. I woke up on morning to see all their lights on and a bunch of people outside. After I got my coffee I saw 2 of the cars were Police cars. Being that our neighbor across the other street was burglarized 2 weeks earlier I assumed they had been hit too.

Later on I saw some people come out and noticed one had a sweatshirt that said "police ice" and another removed his sweatshirt to see a bullet proof vest.

Later I was reading in the newspaper about a NJ task force for criminal immigrants called ICE. The next day I read about 8 people that were arrested for one of the nations largest counterfeiting of jeans and purses being brought in from China and my neighbor was one of them. I've seen him around so I guess he's out on bail.

Years ago, when I was waitressing, we used to fight over who got to wait on the mob guys cause they were such great tippers.

I know exactly who Howie Winter is. It's good that he's nice, but I'd seriously reconsider having him sign the Brothers Bulger.

I worked at the Herald for 11 years total. The desks in the newsroom are back to back and you share a connecting area. My first day - and into the first year - I shared a back to back desk with Howie. However, he was never there. At that time he had just started his radio show. I only saw him twice, I think.

Absolutely not a good idea to ask for an autograph or you might find yourself buried under 93 by Florian like a few other of his & Whitey's acquaintances.

These are really not funny people nor are they "nice" these leopards don't change there spots.

Starwood - ICE is the new name for INS.

Wow, this statement brought back memories!

For five years my family lived in a small town in NJ. There were two notorious mob families on the block. One family had a bunch of the brothers shot up in a bar, the mom was pistol whipped to send a message to the father, their swimming pool was cemented over , they ran a numbers racket out of their produce market & a pizzeria. The dad was about four feet tall and called "Big Lou."

The other family was always trying to peddle stolen merchandise up and down the block.

But the birthday parties they threw for their kids...the whole block was invited and the food and drink was endless. The prizes for the games were amazing.

Yeah, I have reconsidered, and I don't think I will bother him.

My inclination is to tell you to be pleasant and polite to this man and don't get into his business.

If he does a kindness for you, say thank you. Maintain a civil, pleasant relationship.

It sure is interesting living in New England, isn't it? When I was a teen my friend's uncle was part of the RI "family" - and we'd always get great concert tickets from Uncle Robert!

Winter's address

Hi there,
I'm assisting a documentary team working on a project about Whitey Bulger. You mentioned your sister used to live next door to Howie Winter. We're trying to track him down for an interview, and I would greatly appreciate if you would be able to provide his address for me. Let me know if this is a possibility!
Cheers,
Logan.
