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.
Also, for the two of you who may be interested, Craig Newmark on social media and governmental change.
Worcester Tree Giveaways.
May 15 – open house at Sprinkler Factory
May 20 – Art Input meeting for Worcester Cultural Commission (and Art in the Park is coming soon!)
Open Road Festival will be September 4.
Dee had a great post about a new Worcester resident.
Jeff shares a quote from the Republican Convention, and writes about it as well, but Brendan’s commentary was probably the best. (Though Tracy had a lot of great tweets as well.) Karl also wrote well about the Tea Party and the convention. And there were, of course, alternative Tea Parties.
Sean raised some excellent questions about the “business” that might be impacted by the CSX expansion.
Bill wrote about city housing policies.
Paul wrote a nicely reasoned post about parking.
Crystal wrote about neighborhoods, though I think the median household income in Worcester is more like $35,000 (well, the area one is even bigger, if you read the last page of this report), not $18,000. She also wrote another excellent real estate post.
Eating Worcester reviews Playa Del Carmen.
Hannah had a very informative post on the Crompton Park pool.
Victor wrote about the significance of the number 18 and how to effectively get onto the T&G calendar of events.
The Regatta Season has come!
