Stories by Beth Redmond

Purple Asters

I used to be so fearful of bees!  But what a difference it makes when you know something about them!

When i learned that a friend had started beekeeping I became very interested in learning more about bees. I soon discovered many local beekeeping groups and information about beekeeping, and gardening with the intention of attracting and supporting wild bees as well as butterfiles and moths. 

From an small band made up of an Iranian drummer, a Cuban songstress, and a saxohphonist, to a worker with a jackhammer who, at the time, had been laboring in the basement to build the Middle East Club, to the old African American guy so many in Central Square remember rollerskating around Central Square in his crosswalk attendant's outfit, to the head of a golden bull, and even a group of Vietnamese water puppets (I had to ask what those were) Dan Galvez patiently and lovingly pointed out several of the characters in the huge mural.

This past Monday, August 8th, I attended the Special City Council Meeting in the Attles room at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. With nowhere left to sit down unless one considered the floor an option, (and some did) I listened to a stream of comments offered by Cambridge residents, and people who work in Cambridge who also ride bicycles to get to work, to shop, for exercise, and recreation in Cambridge.  Speakers told stories of accidents they themselves had experienced while biking on Cambridge streets and of friends, family members, or neighbors who had. A few examples included:

Changes in Cambridge could not be more visible right now. There are many grandiose new building projects, changes in income levels, expansive and varied businesses moving into the city to name just a few.  A media class in multi-camera shoots at Cambridge Community Television with instructor, Garabed Setrakian and student/members of CCTV investigated several areas of change by reaching out to folks in the street, business owners, teachers, and other ordinary residents of Cambridge to get widely varying takes on the questiion: What's changing in Cambridge and how does this affect you?

On Wednesday, February 8th, a meeting was organized by State Representative, Marjorie Decker (D-MA)  held at the Citywide Senior Center Central Square Ballroom to discuss pending policy changes originating from the White House.

Local Craft Brew Fest 2016

When it comes to creative, specialty craft brewing New England and especially the Cambridge/Boston area stands tall!   Lots of friendly, curious imbibers and foodies spent a perfect fall afternoon tasting and enjoying local craft brew offerings from beers, to small batch liquors to specialty mixed drinks in this area just outside Central Square and Kendall Square.  Visitors from as far away as England and Germany and south of Mason-Dixon line stopped by to talk about their experiences tasting locally crafted rum, gin, whiskey and lots of other tasty liquid refreshments.
