AlertNewEngland reports the Citibank branch at 297 Harvard St. was held up around 2 p.m. by a white guy with a black beard and wearing black clothes who fled on foot toward Beacon Street even though he also had a motorcycle helmet on.
The Small Boston Kitchen is loving the Meat House, a new meaterie in Coolidge Corner.
The star of the store is undoubtedly the enormous meat cases that line the left hand side of the store. Rows and rows of salivation inducing brightly blushing meats of varying size and shape and all at very reasonable prices are the main draw here. From specialty cuts and marinaded meat and seafood, this is the place to go for your old standby steak or to try something a little different, like spinach and feta stuffed pork.

The following op-ed was written by Pamela Julian's son Anthony Byrne and daughter Courtney Byrne:
The local community newspapers owned by GateHouse Media, Inc., particularly the Brookline Tab and West Roxbury Transcript, have insulted their readers yet again. As the son and daughter of State Representative candidate Pamela Julian, we have witnessed biased and/or negligent reporting of this campaign from the beginning. We expected either the Tab or Transcript or both to endorse Kelly Tynan or Paul Sullivan. Why? They published nearly ten op-eds between Tynan and Sullivan while ignoring the multiple op-eds submitted by my mother, Pamela Julian. In fact, the Tab did not print my mother's announcement of her candidacy. They printed all the others. The Tab even published a picture of Tynan during the Brookline forum despite my mother Pamela Julian being the only candidate from Brookline.
As one of the six candidates for State Representative in the 10th Suffolk District, I have the most experience, both politically and professionally.
My political experience includes being elected a library trustee chair, the only candidate to have been elected to public office. I authored pending legislation to establish a student voter registration system, which will allow students to register to vote on-campus. I helped win the Bellevue Hill area of West Roxbury in the 1983 mayoral campaign of Dave Finnegan.
I owned a business, developed an 88-acre site on Lake Sunapee in New Hampshire, and worked in both radio and television. These are some of my professional credentials but I also raised two children, both college graduates. Being a single parent, I know the challenges single mothers face.

Wicked Local Brookline has bad news for people hankering for a b.good burger on Harvard Street. All three of you, apparently.
Signal problems, flooding, disabled trains, they're all so passe. AlertNewEngland reports Riverside trains are being delayed because police at Brookline Village are searching for "man with a snake."
John Hilliard of Wicked Local Brookline gives the Masterpiece Theatre version of a Craigslist men-seeking-women ad.

Linda reports that on Sept. 17, four parking spaces on either side of Harvard Street by the Upper Crust and the Friendly's will become impromptu parks:
In front of Upper Crust Pizza and the Coolidge Corner Theater there will be a colorful activity center with games and "movies" showing pavement to parks improvements from around the country.
Across the street, in front of Friendly's there will be an urban oasis where visitors can sit on the grass or in a beach chair and dangle their toes in the water or play in the sand.
It's part of an international effort to get people to reclaim their streets. One of the Brookline sponsors is the town transportation department, so presumably organizers won't have to keep feeding the meters.

Jeff Egnaczyk lives in Brookline and works in Natick, and he raves about the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority's Green Line shuttle bus from Woodland. Not only does it save him $76 a month over his old route (C line to Copley, commuter rail to Natick, Natick Neighborhood Bus to work), it runs more frequently and:
