Herald: Early-morning fire wrecks Revere KFC.
In thousands of households in Revere, Everett, Malden, Medford and Melrose, alarm clocks lost their minds and started blinking "12:00," Channel 4 reports.
I think my number was five, although I could've gotten that down to one if I hadn't also tried to scrape off my wife's car in addition to mine.
Don Martelli, meanwhile, turns into one of those crabby bloggers the MBTA is always ignoring:
When conditions are icey, can you please alert bus riders on the 110
from Revere to Wellington Station in Medford that the bus will be
bypassing the Park Ave hill due to conditions? You have a website.
Use it. How about text alerts? ...
And Alison Driscoll tweets from South Station:
Nice, train late again and noone knows why. No T alert either. ...
Ervin Memushaj, 26, formerly of South Boston, now faces a rendition hearing to determine if he will be shipped back to Boston to face charges he stabbed four men in the parking lot of the Wonderland T stop on Feb. 12, 2005, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.
According to prosecutors, the four men were at Wonderland when one recognized Memushaj, whom he accused of throwing a bottle at members of his family in an earlier incident in Cambridge. The two exchanged words when Memushaj retreated to his car and the guy's friends tried to pull him away. But, prosecutors charge, Memushaj returned from his car with a knife, which he used to carve up the man and then stabbed the other three in their stomachs as they tried to subdue him.
Prosecutors say the FBI tracked Memushaj to Chicago a few days ago; the Suffolk County DA's office and MBTA police asked for the bureau's help because they feared Memushaj might flee the country, possibly to Albania.
Redfin compiles charts showing the discount off list price in selected Boston Zip codes between Sept. 15 and Nov. 15. Prices are most heavily discounted in Revere and least discounted in Mattapan (Mattapan?). Is that because nobody wants to move to Revere or because Revere sellers have an unrealistic view of what the market will bear these days? Or something else?
So the other day, I congratulated whoever was responsible for repaving part of the VFW Parkway in four days. Don't show that post to Don Martelli, who reports he just got a little note from the mayor of Revere about how the road reconstruction project outside his house, the one that started four months ago when the pavement was ripped out, is now slated for completion sometime next year:
... He gives no reasons. So Mr. Mayor is it because the city ran out of money by paying good for nothing cops or was it mismanagement of the project by you, the moronic Mayor that no one in this city seems to like? Or maybe it was the fact that all your friends are doing the work and you want to line their pockets because they line yours when the timing is right.
Now I know I'm grossly accusing city officials of unlawful acts, but hey, I did say this was Revere, right?
At the end of the day, I just want my street paved. I don't want to deal with potholes, chucks of debris in my front yard/driveway and lastly, I don't want overpaid cops and private contractors sitting around on their ass while the should be working. ...

Kerry Anne took some photos, too, then passed out from heat exhaustion:
... But, fortunately for me, a gentleman from the building I was curled up by came out and brought me inside to get some much needed air conditioning and water. ...
Michael can't help but overhear a guy trying to convince another guy on a bus in Revere to "let it ride" and try Internet dating.
A Beach Street resident was arrested yesterday after allegedly punching a city councilor in the head, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.
City Councilor Ira Novoselsky, 61, was taking photographs of a wall at Andrew Alves's house and Alves, 19, took exception. According to the DA's office:
"Some old man was taking pictures of my house," Alves allegedly told the responding officers unprompted. "He got in my face, so I hit him."
Alves now face up to 10 years in jail for assault and bail on a person over 60; police say they found Novoselsky leaning against a wall, bleeding from his head. Alves pleaded innocent yesterday at his arraignment in Chelsea District Court, ordered held in lieu of $200 bail.

Jeffrey Keller, who operates a clinic at 199 Shirley Ave., was charged today with four counts of indecent assault and battery in connection with two patients, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office.
Keller, 53, pleaded innocent at his arraignment in Chelsea District Court. He was released without bail but ordered to stay away from the two women.
According to the DA's office:
In both instances, the victims were present in Keller's office for physical therapy when the alleged abuse took place. The Medford woman had been involved in an automobile collision and the Lynn woman had been suffering from back problems; both had been seeing Keller for several weeks before the alleged incidents.
DA Dan Conley said investigators are looking for additional possible victims.
Of course officials think a brush fire in Revere was set on purpose.

A Revere man faces heroin-distribution charges despite mutilating his fingertips in an attempt to prevent investigators from matching him to evidence, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office says.
Rafael Cesario, 31, was arrested last week, along with two other men, on charges they ran a drug-distribution ring out of an apartment at 54 Shirley Ave. From a press release:
Suffolk County prosecutors successfully argued to have "major case prints" – inked impressions of the palm and entire length of the fingers ... because he had either burned or chewed off his own fingerprints. Investigators took his booking photo to the Registry of Motor Vehicles Facial Recognition Unit, which used biometric identification technology to match him with an active Massachusetts driver's license in that name – as well as a denied application for a license under [another name]

Larry Davidson reads the canard in City Weekly and so points out that the Blake House in Dorchester was actually built at least 30 years before the Revere House. He even posts days and times you can visit the house (and, sadly, adds "It's in a safe part of Dorchester, so don't worry about what you hear about our neighborhoods").
Milena Johana Henao Giraldo was arrested last week in New York on charges she plowed into a Revere pedestrian and then fled on Dec. 31, 2006, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Robert Iacoviello, 20, of Revere, was today charged with the Sept. 29 murder of Revere police officer Daniel Talbot behind Revere High School.
