Prevailing sentiment in progressive haunts is “2016, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Between a stressful election season, acts of terror, and the crisis in Syria, many of us will be glad to see the calendar page turn on Sunday night. Still, to every cloud there is a silver lining, and at least when it comes to tackling climate change in the US, Massachusetts was a bright spot amidst the clouds of 2016.

Mess on Hillside Street on Mission Hill

A disgusted Mission Hill resident filed this report from Hillside Street, shortly before noon:

Just got back from walking my dog in the middle of the street since most of the sidewalks look like this. This trash has been on the sidewalk next to our house since yesterday early evening. Come on City of Boston and Mayor Walsh, you can do better!!! As a nurse who's been living here since the Spring I'm not finding this unsanitary situation amusing... My 1st and last 9/1 on the Hill!
