Fire at 83 Paul Gore St Jamaica Plain

There was fire at 83 Paul Gore St in Jamaica Plain last night, everyone is ok, but it looks like people will not be allowed to live in the building until it is all fixed up again which will take months.  They have places to stay for the next few days, but the most immediate need is to find rental apartments for everyone, so that they can get their lives back together.  I think there is just one couple by themselves and everyone else has a baby or cats or dogs, so if you…

stolen bikes

Hello neighbors,

I wanted to let folks know that my husband and I just returned home to find that our bicycles were stolen from our driveway (100 Paul Gore) sometime while we were out today (between around 9:45 a.m. till 4 p.m.). The two bikes had been locked together to a fence at the top end of our driveway, with a pretty heavy-duty bicycle cable which was severed in what looks like one swift, sharp cut. Both bicycles were mountain bikes, on the older side but in  good condition.…

Lost Cats

I got a call from some neighbors who had found a very sick cat over on Greenough Ave last night, the cat was taken to Angell, by one of their vets who was passing by, where it died. It was tabby with a lot of orange hair mixed in. If it is your cat or you know someone in that area who is missing a cat like it, then I'm very sorry. You might want to go to Angell and see, I don't know how long they keep them.



My cat, Shenzi, is still missing, it's been three weeks, I just hope he is… Continue

CVS Expansion to include take out pizza?

I've heard that the CVS at the corner of Centre St and South Huntington is looking to expand into the space vacated by Petal and Leaf and that it will include take out pizza, (rumored to be perhaps Domino's Pizza). Does anyone else know about this? Neighbors have previously expressed concern that we don't need chain fast food places, and we certainly don't need more pizza places.

The hearing is on Tuesday August 4th at 10:30am in Room 801 City Hall.

Missing Cat - Paul Gore St



Dear Neighbors,

My cat, Shenzi, has been missing since Thursday, I think he may have hidden somewhere because of the thunderstorm and can't get out which would be very bad (so if you live near me please check your basements etc), or just got scared by that or people letting off fireworks and went too far away and can't find his way back (but most lost cats are within three or four blocks of where they live, I live in the middle part of Paul… Continue
