At nine acres, the proposed dog park would dwarf similar facilities in the rest of the city.
Backers of a plan to replace a condemned parcel next to the Fairmount train station with a 27-unit apartment building hold yet another public meeting to discuss the plans on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at the Hyde Park municipal building on River Street.
The Southwest Boston Community Development Corp., which proposed the apartments, has already had two public meetings on the plan. Although the plans have not changed in the year since they first became public, proponents will hold the third because ISD says the project needs two variances from the Zoning Board of Appeals, not the one the CDC originally thought.

When you turn onto Norton Street from either River or Readville, just follow the blue glow in the sky to 26 Norton for the Canale family's annual Christmas celebration. You'll find an entire front yard full of glowing ornaments and lights, turning on and off to festive music. A life-size video Santa waves to you from inside the house.

Members of the fraud ring managed to get the victims' phone lines redirected to their own, which they then used to obtain advances on the victims' home-equity lines and have them transferred to their own bank accounts between November 2012 and Feburary, 2013, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.

About 150 students at the Boston Community Leadership Academy marched around Hyde Park this afternoon protesting recent grand-jury actions involving police officers and blacks.
"Hands up! Don't shoot!" they chanted, along with "No justice, no peace!" They walked from the Hyde Park Education Complex to Logan Square, up to the E-18 police station - where a phalanx of officers quickly appeared to stand watch.

The Boston Licensing Board has granted full liquor licenses to a proposed Italian restaurant on Fairmount Avenue in Hyde Park and an under-construction bistro on South Street in Roslindale - and voted to let an existing Dominican restaurant on Fairmount Avenue expand from beer and wine to all types of liquor.

Hyde Park to South Station locals have fought for this for years. I'll be on the first Saturday morning, Nov. 29th train and head to the Haymarket.
Basically, it's hourly service and in some ways better than the existing five-day sked. The last train from South Station will leave at 10:58PM.
NStar is confirming it is buying land behind the Stop & Shop on American Legion Highway and the Oak Lawn Cemetery on Cummins Highway that until recently was best known for the green towers meant to support netting for the driving range that was supposed to be built there.
However, the company is denying rumors it plans to put a solar farm up on the recently cleared Barry's Ledge land, which has largely laid fallow in the decades since it stopped serving as a quarry for the old Boston Elevated Railway (BERy)- a predecessor of the MBTA.

Turtle Pond in Stony Brook Reservation was completely still in the fog this morning. From the dock on the parkway side of the pond, you could barely make out the dock on the other side; the trees there cast a dark gray reflection on the water.
Meanwhile, Adam Shutes walked onto the dock at the Jamaica Pond boathouse this morning:
