"Joseph, I really appreciate your framing questions. I think that one of the challenges with these meetings taking place at this point in time is that the known facts set is quite small and that greatly affects the answer to questions three…"

Eric replied to April Barton's discussion Did anyone's car get egged this weekend?
"Remember the 48 hour rule is only an agreement between the city DPW and the person with the cone regarding taking the cone off the street. It's somewhat impossible for the city to enforce anything otherwise, you can't really ticket a chair…"

"Thanks. I have seen that, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to contact JPNC. I know there will be other meetings in the future but I was just wondering if there were other ways to communicate."

JPNC - Email For Those Who Missed Recent Meeting Regarding Whole Foods

Hello. I was out of town and missed this past JPNC meeting regarding the Whole Foods in Hyde Square. I would like to be able to express my opinion to the JPNC and was wondering if there was a way to do so via email. I know there are various JPNC members here so I thought I would post here for information (and for the sake of anyone else who did not attend the recent meeting). I see there is an email address on JPNC's website (info.jpnc AT gmail.com) but I was unsure whether that was an…See More

Eric commented on Matt's blog post Snow & Parking Wars
"Let's clarify one point...the 48 hour "rule" is not a law. It was not passed by the Legislature and it doesn't establish any property rights to anybody.   It mainly relates to whether or not the city will direct the DPW to…"

Eric commented on Kevin G's blog post How to work with neighbors who do not shovel?
"The worst are multi-family rental buildings. I feel like the landlords have made a cost benefit analysis in that it costs them more to hire people to do the work then it would cost them in fines."

"Worn-Out"

Posted on May 26, 2010 at 3:15pm 3 Comments

Interesting opinion piece from the LA Times. Did you know that Jamaica Plain was a "worn-out, working-class Boston suburb"? That's some great fact-checking!

JP Branch Library In Danger of Closing

Posted on March 4, 2010 at 2:16pm 5 Comments

FYI, it looks like the BPL will go forward and close 8-10 library branches and many people think that the JP branch at Sedgwick is in danger of being one of the branches that is closed. There is apparently a petition available at the JP library, but it's also important to contact your local representatives if you're interested in keeping an important part of JP.…

Surendra Dangol - Fund

Posted on December 29, 2009 at 3:24pm 1 Comment

As an FYI...



As noted in today's Globe, friends and family of Surendra Dangol, the murder victim of the Tedeschi hold-up, have put together some funds to help pay for the funeral expenses and otherwise of Mr. Dangol. I believe that Citizens Bank has a fund set up at the local JP branch on Centre Street (as noted in the article), but you can also donate through the Greater Boston Nepalese Community website at http://www.gbnc.org/.…
