The owner of the McDonald's franchise on American Legion Highway has withdrawn his request for a license to stay open 24/7.
Roslindale turned out for the annual Roslindale Day Parade today. Marching bands marched, politicians politicked and, at least where we were, everbody seemed to have a good time:
The owner of the McDonald's at 718 American Legion Highway goes before the Boston Licensing Board on Weds., Oct. 6, seeking permission to stay open 24 hours a day. The burger outlet is currently open 7 a.m. to midnight.
Held this past Sunday at the Russian Orthodox Church of the Holy Epiphany in Roslindale.
From the front door, go straight back - after you stop at the circulation desk to pick up the appropriate key.
Boston Fireman reports Boston rescue crews and Amtrak police rushed to the tracks near Hyde Park Avenue and Cummins Highway around 11:40 a.m. this morning, initially on reports the train hit somebody. Boston Fireman says the incident did mean "residual delays" for train riders on the line.
If you reach for some shampoo, conditioner or deodorant at the CVS on Washington Street, you now have to move these vertical hanging plastic strips that make a fair amount of noise when jostled. Puzzled by this, one of our roving correspondents got the scoop:
The store's been plagued by people shoplifting the items and then returning later, demanding "refunds" for them. So now, when somebody reaches for some Pantene, a clerk's alerted and can keep an eye on whoever's making the noise. They're helped by the store's general layout - the shelves on most of the aisles are fairly low.

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.

Needham Patch reports on a Ninth District forum that featured Democrat Mac D'Alessandro and Republican Vernon Harrison. Their opponents, incumbent Democrat Steve Lynch and Republican Keith Lepor were no-shows.
A pizza-delivery man in his 50s was stabbed to death at 742 Hyde Park Ave. in Roslindale shortly before midnight by two men and a woman, who stole his car and then abandoned it behind a church a couple miles away in Hyde Park, police say.
Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis, speaking near the car behind St. Adalbart Church on River Street this morning, said evidence at the murder scene and in the car should help police find the trio even though they have fled the area.
Davis said the three broke into the Hyde Park Avenue house - which has been vacant for about a year - then called a local Domino's for a pizza. When the delivery man, not identified pending notification of his next of kind, arrived, they attacked and killed him.
Davis said somebody who had seen initial media reports about his Subaru wagon noticed it in the church parking lot and called police around 8:30 a.m.
