Deputy Superintendent Pauline Wells

I first laid eyes on DS Wells at the Senior Center in Central Square on election night. I was on the CCTV crew covering the election results, while she, along with the new police Commissioner, Branville G. Bard, Jr and several other police officers were on duty protecting the process.

This One’s For Tom Petty Fans

A Conversation with Steve Morse of the Boston Globe

Over the last couple of years as we have lost our rock & roll icons and symbols of our youth and rebellion, I uttered the most unfortunate words, “At least I won’t have to worry about Tom for a while.”

2nd Annual Local Craft Spirits Festival Program

Crowds flocked to the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts' Local Craft Spirits Festival Friday night to enjoy this event offering Massachusetts and New England based local craft distilled spirits, cider, artisan beverages as well as a bit of craft beer. The final tweet gives the appearance that your @Neighbormedia correspondent was blotto, but this was actually due to low light.

“Just a Kid from Cambridge”

When I saw my first one, I thought it was a sweatshirt that CRLS was handing out to the kids in one of its clubs. But then I started seeing more of them and not just on teenagers, but also on people of all ages. I am referring to the t-shirt/sweatshirt that proudly reads “Just a Kid from Cambridge.”

A Soulful City Girl

Meet Ali McGuirk

Before Annie Lennox of the Eurythmics was famous, she used to wait tables in New York City. Imagine the thrill of being served Spaghetti Bolognese by someone who would soon become an international rock star.

Although the game of fame has changed drastically over the decades, one thing remains the same; you never know what plethora of talent your waiter or barista may be dishing out when their shift is over.
