The Word Around the Ward

Did you know that Ward 5’s own, Jonas Kahn, hosts a Bob Marley music night at Sally O’Brien’s? Well, now you do! Stop by at 10pm and enjoy some awesome live music courtesy of Duppy Conquerors.

How did you think the DPW did with the recent snowfall? Be sure to comment your thoughts below.

Eat at Jumbos (688 Broadway) will be giving a $5 gift card with the purchase of a $25 card for the holidays. Get your shopping done locally and get some cards for yourself!
Looks like the conversation about GPS installations in City vehicles will be heading to Committee as members of the current Board of Aldermen expressed concerns about them at last Thursday's meeting. Should be interesting what the new wave of elected officials and Somerville Unions have to say about them. Feel free to comment below.

School was held yesterday...much to the dismay of one high school student on Twitter. After announcing there would be school on Wednesday December 18th, a Somerville High School student directly responded with, "assholes." The daughter of a DPW worker jumped into the conversation prompting an explanation and a "this has nothing to do with the DPW" response from the SHS student. No response was made by the City's official Twitter account. Thoughts?

Stop by Somerville Local First's Local is for Lovers Market on Sunday (10-3/Armory) and support local vendors, as well as, the Somerville Homeless Coalition. Somerville Patch explains what's up!

Was not impressed this last storm and normally I have nothing bad to say about them. Not sure if they got a late start, or if all the traffic was slowing them down, but did not see a single plow until well into storm and the uphill streets, which are usually over plowed could have used more.
