Sorry for not posting a roundup sooner, and sorry this one is so sparse; I’m so behind on things I haven’t even read last Thursday’s Albert Southwick column. And I have to write a lot more about pit bulls…
I’ll be putting up a few items on the Virtual Assignment Desk for this week. If you register at the WorcesterActivist site, you can update this as well.
Contests & Other Publicity
The mayor is having a neighborhood walk TODAY.
Veg Fest, April 17
Big Read activities at the library; also, genealogy conference.
What I Learned This Week
First, can I just say how great it was to have actual posts (besides 508) on pieandcoffee this week? (I put the podcast on as I was getting some supper together for my older son, who said, “Nicole? I think they’re talking to you!” I refrained from telling him that Mike was the guy we waved to in the library as we made our weekly pilgrimage to the touch-screen computers in the children’s section…)
Sean continues to read Nemeth so I don’t have to, and writes about Common futility; he’s also reviewing websites of challengers to McGovern. (This also showed me that the ICT candidate profiles are essentially quotes from websites.)
Lance makes mad libs and corrects grammar. (hope you feel better!)
Jeremy did the city council liveblog.
Tracy on meetings (this week), mall school, fixing schools, FY11 budget, and MASC Day on the Hill.
Bill on Chandler NRSA achievements, HUD’s audit of Holyoke, the Chamber of Commerce, new housing policy, Stewart Airport, and Main South CDC.
Jeff continues the Toxic Players series, privatization, indoctrination, cruiser cams, quotes RZN, discusses the T&G reinventing the wheel, and CSX expansion.
Paulie has three good reasons to move to his neighborhood.
Victor had some great April Fool’s Day posts, for which he did not provide links. He also wrote a really great post on the future of journalism.
Dee on crosswalk safety, mobile vision protection, and driving in Worcester.
The need for different pharmacy chains.
Miss Crystal’s real estate recommendations; she also visited the carnival. And she’s writing a lot about health care and tea parties, so you should really be reading if you aren’t already.
WorcesterEM actually tweeted.
Worcester love, Easter in four languages, wrist corsages, trout stocking, Cascading Waters, residential sweeping, huge reptilian beetles, the best summary of the past month’s rain, Elm Park, Trumbull Square.
