For those of you with roof racks on your cars, beware. My Yakima rack
was stolen last Thursday or Friday night off my car while it was parked

the dispatcher said she had recently… Continue

Folks, as you may know I've been running the JP Foodies group here for the past few months. It's been a lot of fun but I'm going to be moving to East Boston and will no longer be running the JP group.

Tuesday's trustee meeting introduced us to the newest member, Carol Fulp. She's a trainee of Paul LaCamera, so now we won't have any more confusing ties and you can guess which way the tiebreaker will go. Another millionaire Super Friend on the board. Is it too much to ask for a Trustee that makes < $250,000 a year? This time it's a friend of both the mayor and the governor:… Continue

A source told me that the library is already scouting out the 4 branches to close next and is paring down the book collection to reduce the number of books to 80% capacity.
What we are working… Continue
