2019-02-01T09:54:19+00:00February 1st, 2019|Categories: Featured, Lifestyle|Comments Off on Bfit and The 100 Club Supporting the Families of Fallen Heroes

By Tara Kerrigan Hayes   This past Sunday, January 27th, the Boston Bruins Foundation hosted the 3rd Annual BFit First Responder Challenge, presented by National Grid at the TD Garden. Also known as the Climb to Support the Families of Fallen First Responders, the event does precisely that, by donating the proceeds raised to The Hundred Club of Mass, Inc., (the 100 Club), a charity that supports the families of law enforcement officers and firefighters killed in the line of duty in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The 100 Club was organized in 1959, recognizing early on that when a family faces the devastation of losing a loved one in the line of duty, they are also often met with the harsh reality of losing the [...]

  South Boston Loses a Caring-Giving Man

2019-01-28T09:12:12+00:00January 28th, 2019|Categories: Featured, News|Comments Off on   South Boston Loses a Caring-Giving Man

By Ray Flynn, Former Mayor of Boston   Every Saturday around 2 p.m., ten men and one woman from the Boston area would stop their busy lives and head to St. Peter and Paul Church in South Boston to sing in the Men’s Choir at the 4 o’clock Mass. Most of the men lived in South Boston at one time.  Some of them, like Bob Buckley, moved  to communities like Arlington, while others came from places like East Boston and the South Shore. One choir member, Jim Ryan, Southie’s first Commissioner of Little League, continued to live on Athens Street.  Everyone in our group, including our organist Mazzie and organizer Marty Quinn, had proud Southie roots.

Veterans Honored at Compass on the Bay

2019-01-24T10:56:30+00:00January 24th, 2019|Categories: Featured, News|Comments Off on Veterans Honored at Compass on the Bay

 by Rick Winterson   Sometimes, an event is so enjoyable, and what’s more important, so meaningful, that it’s difficult to know where to begin writing it up.  That was certainly with case for the recent tribute paid to the military veterans, who are now residing in Compass on the Bay at 1380 Columbia Road.  But, as some famous author must have once said, just “begin at the beginning”.  So here goes. Dianne Paull and Joanne Miller are the two Receptionists at Compass on the Bay.  During a conversation they had late last year, they came up with the idea of somehow recognizing and honoring the twelve veterans living at Compass on the Bay.  Well, Receptionists (as everyone knows) are on the front lines of communications.  [...]

By Brianne Fitzgerald, Nurse Practitioner and the founder of Recoverymattersma.org.   There is a vast gap between the federal laws, policies and enforcement of cannabis and the current issues of legalization including medical marijuana, the buzz of marijuana as a gateway drug and the science related to it.  This series is directed toward parents, teens and adults of all ages as a way to open dialogue (sorely missing in our country today) in order to make thoughtful decisions.  The first article will discuss marijuana history, the next one what science says about marijuana, and the third piece will address issues of medical marijuana and after that…. send me your thoughts, ideas and opinions. Marijuana has been used as an agent for achieving euphoria since ancient times.  [...]

by Rick Winterson      Last Tuesday, two evenings ago on January 15, Boston’s Mayor Martin J. Walsh delivered his 2018-2019 “State of the City” address.  It was the fourth annual such presentation by Walsh, in which the Mayor described two visions of his administration - the vision based upon past achievements, and the vision he and his team foresee in the City of Boston’s future.
