The Crimson reports Schoenhof's, founded in Boston in 1856, will close forever on March 25, although it will continue to sell books online. High Harvard Square rents meant the store could no longer continue in the age of Amazon.
Kristin Johnson runs the numbers on the proposed BPS budget for the coming school year, finds that "49 schools are losing a total of $11.47 million [in funding]" under a BPS budget released earlier this month.
The cuts are related in part to declining enrollment at the schools, but they also mean some schools would lose positions - such as librarians - that threaten their accreditation and possibly accelerate their downward spirals, she writes.
Candelaria Silva has long enjoyed being able to sit alone at a restaurant, with just her thoughts, her food and, often, a good book:
Two other favorites were in Harvard Square - Hong Kong Restaurant - the Chinese food there was very different from what I’d had in my home town of St. Louis - and Wursthaus, a German restaurant. I can’t remember what I ate there but I remember it was delicious and I was thrilled with the feeling of seclusion I had while there.
Quincy Police report they are looking for two men for the armed robbery of a Franklin Street gas station last night.
Police say a clerk at Prestige Gas, 9 Franklin St., was at the station entrance when:
A black male who was masked grabbed him and forced him, at gunpoint, to the floor in the rear of the store. The cashier stated to officers that the suspect held a black pistol to his head and held him on the ground. The cashier then stated there was another masked black male suspect who was watching the front store door. The armed suspect then demanded the cashier to turn over the store keys. The suspects then observed customers approaching the front door and both fled the store on foot to an awaiting vehicle described as a dark color SUV with a partial MA plate 42K. The vehicle and the suspects then fled on Franklin St. towards School St.
Police say the robbery is similar to one Jan. 31 at Prime Gas on Hancock Street.
