Update on National Politics from Winter Hill

Given the greatly disproportionate representation of 'bad' to 'good' news out there these days, we try in our own teeny way to have at least a minuscule influence in rebalancing the focus to positive aspects of our part of town. This editorial by Andy Metzger (who does a great job covering Somerville and Winter Hill in various forms) isn't really a 'positive' story per se; however, it falls within the context of an important national story that Winter Hill's Mike Capuano is a potential candidate for US Senate. We will continue to cover his candidacy as it evolves, and hope to see more print about his positions in the coming months.

Playing Catch-up for WHR-Related Webstuffs

Haven't posted anything so far this February, so here are some random items of interest:

Six Degrees of Starcraft: Not sure what is going on here, but it seems like you get a 'random' topic to start with, and then need to somehow click your way to Starcraft. The StarStruck got 'Winter Hill, Somerville' to start.

Tweet of the hill: @SvilleSchools Delish! (and healthy!!) Asian chicken salad for lunch at Winter Hill School. See it next week on Our Schools, Our City.

Winter Hill Neighbor Profiled in The Somerville News: Gonzalez, a Winter Hill resident, performs a variety of tasks – from shoveling to driving a stick shift vehicle – that wouldn’t seem possible for a man born with one arm. He shrugs off the praise he receives from neighbors and family who tell him he is inspirational.

Ok, I think that catches us up for now. If not, feel free to let us know!
