Watertown PD Sgt. John "Mac" MacLellan.testified today that Dzhokhar "Jahar" Tsarnaev could have escaped police on Laurel Street in Watertown in Dun "Danny" Meng's car-jacked Mercedes without killing his brother Tamerlan who had been apprehended.

Somerville, MA, Feb. 24, 2015 â€“ Despite the freezing temperatures and mountains of snow, since early January residents have been trudging to meetings about the future of Union Square in the old Post Office.
The gatherings are hosted by City officials and by representatives of US2 (Union Square Station Associates), the master developer for the 12 acres on seven blocks of property in and around the square that are slated to be redeveloped.
Please join your neighbors at this free, public panel discussion: Our Lives Matter: Art as Protest
Thursday, March 5th from 7-8pm at SCATV (90 Union Square).
We will discuss how local artists, poets and performers use creative expression to respond to current events and social injustices.

Those who attend may leave feeling inspired to pursue their own creative form.

Letâ€™s get the clichĂ© right out the way: it was just another cold winter January weekday morning in the town where I live, just seven miles from the center of Boston, Massachusetts. Wake up in the dark, get the kids going, make the coffee and breakfast, turn on the radio, start the cars up and tell the kids itâ€™s time for school. An â€śI love youâ€ť here, an â€śIâ€™ll see you tonightâ€ť there. Pull out from the driveway and head into suburbia.

Somerville, MA, Oct. 21 â€“New, relatively unregulated â€śride sharingâ€ť transportation companies like Uber and Lyft earn the praise of travelers but are prompting protests from traditional taxi drivers and others.
