Let’s Make it Plaid Friday This Year
By Laury Hammel and Stacy Mitchell
For many Americans, Black Friday has come to epitomize all that’s gone wrong with this season of gift-giving and the long hours we’ll spend in the coming weeks negotiating traffic jams, crowds, and the endless aisles of big-box stores. That’s why we propose that New Englanders take a new approach to holiday shopping this year. Let’s use this special time to slow down and really savor the places where we live: our public squares and historic buildings, our sense of community, and the rich variety of locally owned stores and restaurants that contribute so much to the flavor and spirit of our region.

Leone's Subs & Pizza, on Broadway in Winter Hill, with its signature meatball subs, square slices and neon sign, has been a staple of the neighborhood for over a half-century.

Prima Pizza filed for an entertainment license to install one television to play football games.
The board unanimously approved the entertainment license, and wished Mr. Prima luck with his business.
It’s interesting to me that the meaning of “diversity” has become focused around race and ethnicity. Obviously there are many other ways in which people can diverge from each other: religion, politics, physical abilities, family history, economic status, age, sexual orientation, and more. When my former employer’s human resource managers talked about seeking workforce diversity, I don’t think they meant they were actively recruiting more Jews, paraplegics, Catholics, or 60-year-old gay men — all of which were also under-represented on the company’s staff.

From boston.com By Marion Davis:
Striking a blow for a softer, greener world
The ‘de-paving’ movement comes to Somerville
It was a small victory, but combined with dozens like it, that ceremonial smash helped reclaim about 400 square feet of green space in a backyard in Somerville, a city that is 77 percent paved over. A few blocks away, behind another Winter Hill house, volunteers cleared about 200 square feet of asphalt.

Letter: Former Star Market site not feasible for new supermarket
By AJ Dellicicchi
Wicked Local Somerville
Posted Aug 20, 2010 @ 03:27 PM
As someone who lives next to the property that everyone is talking about – the former Star Market – I feel like there is an element of common sense that is missing from every meeting I’ve attended. I’m inclined to believe that people are being unrealistic in their expectations of what can be done with the parcel in question because either they have never been to the area or don’t frequent it enough to know what they are talking about.
