Wicked Local Brookline takes the new double-paper cup out for a spin in advance of Brookline's impending ban on the old plastic cups:
Heat retention: This one performs about the same as standard paper cups, but what keeps the coffee a little hotter is the rotating lid.
Wicked Local Brookline reports on the local constabulary's semi-annual crime report, which includes the fact that one of the two times police had to fire a weapon in the first half of this year involved shooting a turkey with a shotgun - back when the tasty terrors were even more terrible than usual.
Wicked Local Brookline continues its coverage of the fowl menace confronting Brookline in these dark (meat) days, with two reports on the two-bit turkey thugs terrorizing the town: In the first, police responded to a report of a turkey on one street only to find it on another, being fed by a resident (Wicked Local does not specify if this was after midnight). In the second, a terrorized mom called to report a turkey "acting aggressively" toward her husband and child.
Unfortunately, it was a regular trolley that slipped off its tracks at Coolidge Corner, around 10:30 a.m. The good news is that no one was injured and that it happened after rush hour. The bad news is that people who do want to get somewhere between Cleveland Circle and Kenmore now have to take a shuttle bus - or walk over the B or D lines.
Wicked Local Brookline reports on the hoops a local woman had to go through to get the town to let her do a public art project involving sidewalk chalk. Let's just say it was a good thing for her she has a friend who's a lawyer specializing in the First Amendment.
The Supreme Judicial Court ruled today that prosecutors can order e-mail providers such as Google hand over the complete e-mail records of people under indictment - if they're being investigated for additional charges and under strict supervision to ensure they don't get a look at any messages between the defendants and their lawyers.
With MBTA management silent, what better way to get answers for the daily "E"xcuses than to ask an operator? It was brought to my attention that the elusive Huntington Ave construction is actually occurring somewhere on Route 9 in Brookline. The thought on the T's part is that this will cause traffic to back up all the way into Boston - even if it is between 9 and 5 - and thus impact the E Line enough to cause equipment shortages and delays.
Molly Fohn's commute this morning was interrupted at Brookline Hills when everybody was ordered off the train because of all that smoke from the train's brakes. Everyone escaped unhurt.
The Brookline TAB published a story about our efforts to collect memories and photos of the Circle Cinemas and our hope to save the quirky CIRCLE sign from the landfill.

We're writing here to announce a new project commemorating the Circle Cinema, which has been a Brighton landmark since 1940. The theater, and its iconic CIRCLE sign, are scheduled to meet the wrecking ball later this year.
We are a photographer and a sociologist who have teamed up to collect memories, photos, and opinions of the theater and its sign (positive, negative, indifferent). We are also looking to interview folks with stories to tell about the theater. Was your first date at the Circle? Work the concession stand in high school? See a memorable film there that has stayed with you ever since? We want to hear from you.
