As previously noted in the community, the four moderators of your community here (ron_newman, surrealestate, cos, and prunesnprisms) have agreed that the community will be moving to this location at the hosting tool Dreamwidth, beginning May 1.

You may create a free account with Dreamwidth here. You may also choose to continue with OpenID from LiveJournal, but as has been pointed out in the comments below there's no single-login connection from Facebook or Google properties. Many of you will know already that this is a similar blogging site to Livejournal, maintained by former LiveJournal team members, and hosted in the US -- here is some recent information for new members posted by the team here.

While we don't plan to remove any content that's ever been posted here, we'd like to mark a line in the sand at which point we leave the top post on this community as a pointer to where we are now located. ron_newman has backed up the community twice to make sure all our older posts and comments are preserved. However, there is no way to continuously cross-post the community, and none of us will continue to push new posts over to Livejournal after May 1. In addition we will be removing posting access to this community over the next few days as well.

You can read more about the concerns regarding Livejournal as a platform here

Please join us in our new home!

Your team of moderators are open to suggestions about the style of the community on Dreamwidth, as it has not been chosen recently and is probably not as up to date as it could be for mobile or other readability. Please feel free to share in the comments.

On a personal note, leaving Livejournal a few months ago, other than this community, was personally very difficult for me as I’ve been using this platform more than fifteen years. I do quite like Dreamwidth and had no problems migrating over. I believe in the leadership team’s statement of diversity and guiding principles. I really hope that those of you who are similarly conflicted about LJ and want to maintain an open community for us to have discussion about just any old thing happening in Davis Square will find us there.

I'm not sure if you all have seen the new Live Journal terms of service, but in my mind, they seriously compromise the ability of this site to serve as a forum for our community: http://www.livejournal.com/legal/tos-en.bml

In short, Livejournal users are now governed by Russian law, and risk having posts removed or accounts deleted if they don't comply with it. Among other things, "Political solicitation" is now banned, meaning no more talking about Aldermanic or state legislative races. Any discussion of LGBT rights will require the "adult content" label to avoid running afoul of the "Gay Propaganda" laws of the Russian Federation.

While moving will certainly be disruptive, in the long run, I think it is essential if this is going to remain a home of free discussion of issues pertinent to Davis Square. I welcome your thoughts on this.

Shona Stone Sculptures in the Garden

shona sculptureThe Shona people of Zimbabwe are well known for the originality and beauty of their stone carvings. Many of these sculptures have been featured in botanical gardens and sculpture parks throughout the world. Rosemary Chimbganda of Zimbabwe, an expert on and importer and retailer of Shona sculpture, and Susan Miller, a Somerville gardener whose garden highlights Shona sculpture, will share their knowledge of Shona sculpture as well as present photos and video(s) of Shona garden sculpture and the sculpting process.

Rosemary Chimbganda grew up in Zimbabwe where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Economics before moving to USA more than 32 years ago. Rosemary was a successful computer programmer and software consultant for many years. In 2003, her growing passion for the Zimbabwe stone sculpture won her over and she now travels around the country promoting and selling the sculptures. She is also a real estate agent with Keller Williams’s realty.

Susan Miller has been in private practice as a learning disability specialist for over 20 years. Her work now includes assessing and tutoring children with language based learning disabilities in reading, math and writing. After meeting Rosemary Chimbganda last year, Susan became obsessed with learning about and owning Shona stone sculptures.

All Somerville Garden Club meetings are free and open to the public. There will be also be garden Q and A, light refreshments and a raffle. 7-9pm. Meetings are held the at the Tufts Administration Building, (TAB), 167 Holland Street, second floor, wheelchair accessible. Parking is available, and the building is a ten-minute walk from the Davis Square MBTA stop.

Me and my girlfriend own 2 cars one of which has a designated spot and the other we park on the street. Say we are planning a 2 week vacation, wondering what would be my best options to park the extra car. Parking at the airport can quickly add up to $138 for a week. Or we could could just leave it on the sidewalk and eat the $50 fine for street sweeping assuming they are not towing it. What do you folks do?

Just heard from my Alderman that there's a huge new apartment complex proposed for Assembly Square, and the developer is trying to talk the city out of requiring the usual minimum amount of affordable housing.  If you think this is a bad idea, I recommend writing to the Planning Board.  More details on Mark Niedergang's website.
 
 
According to Ward 6 alderman Lance Davis, Garden Remedies has withdrawn its application to open a medical marijuana dispensary in the former Family Dollar store at 245 Elm Street.

The city has already approved another dispensary to go into the basement of the bfresh building across the street.

Does anyone know of a place in Greater Camberville that accepts small styrofoam for recycling? I live in Arlington, which accepts large packing foam (the kind that immobilizes electronics in shipping boxes), but doesn't accept small foam containers (clamshell boxes from takeout food, which have a #6 recycling symbol on the bottom). The town collection staff told me that no recycling business will pay for the latter and I should put it in the trash. But if it's recyclable, I should be able to recycle it, right?!?!

These three women embark on a journey through faith, doubt, need and miracles that will leave each of them changed forever.

STAGED READING - ONE NIGHT ONLY!

Welp, that was a total bust.

The Jerk Bus beat me.  They kept moving too fast, not staying anywhere for long, and spreading misinformation about when and where they'd be, so I couldn't catch up to them.  It was like chasing Carmen San Diego; by the time I'd arrived at the State House, they'd already moved to Harvard, and I suspected that the moment I got to Harvard, they'd leave again.

So now I've got a bunch of resources and nothing to do with them.  You can download the whole load free here, I guess; I'm gonna take it down in a week, because some of it is pirated and I don't want to bilk my own community.  The whole thing contains:

Okay, you guys have probably already heard, but the Free Speech Bus is coming our way. (It's this total horseshit bus covered in slogans about how only XX girls and XY boys exist and anyone who says otherwise is against free speech and also SCIENCE because that's totally how science works.)

The bus got hit hard in NYC, so it's in the repair shop until Wednesday; I'm not sure when it's going to hit Boston and Harvard Square, but I'm planning something to do when it does.

Beep beep it's the Freedom Bus!Collapse )

Most approaches to solving the most pressing social challenges we face are wrong because they are rooted in the deeply flawed assumption that human behaviors and decisions are purely rational. Brain science and hard-won experience demonstrate just the opposite, revealing the primary role unconscious processes play in shaping our behaviors and decision-making, especially in the aftermath of violence and trauma. To thrive in the 21st century, what is needed is a profound reshaping of our approaches to human conflict and division, one that is rooted in a nuanced, empirical understanding of human behavior.

Timothy Phillips is a pioneer in the field of conflict resolution and reconciliation and co-founder of Beyond Conflict, a global initiative that is internationally recognized for contributions to the field of transitional justice in post-communist Europe.

Here's the Craigslist ad:
https://boston.craigslist.org/gbs/fuo/6051352520.html

These retail for $110 each, but I got them at a yard sale for $40 each. Of course, then I realized they were the wrong height for my kitchen counter.

Anyway, I'm asking $40 each/$80 for the pair or best offer. They have a couple scratches but are otherwise in excellent condition.

Our 1920's cinder block detached garage is of the classic Somerville style. It's pretty sound, but needs repair of rotted wood frame around the garage door and some cracked masonry/facade issues. Seems too small for major contractors, but might be more than a handyman usually does. Since there are so many of these garages around Somerville, and many have been fixed up, I'm hoping some of you can recommend the folks who do this work. Hoping to fix this spring. Thank you!

Hello, this is Jackie Rossetti with important snow emergency information for Wednesday, March 15.

The City will lift the current snow emergency at 7 a.m. Wednesday morning. Beginning at 7:00, vehicles parked in any municipal or school lot will have two hours to move out of the lot. Any vehicles not moved by 9 a.m. Wednesday will be ticketed and towed so that City crews can safely plow and treat the lots. Please note that while snow is expected to switch over to rain this evening, City crews will continue snow removal operations with large equipment throughout the night tonight, so cars must remain parked according to the snow emergency regulations until tomorrow morning.

Somerville Public Schools will remain closed on Wednesday. Somerville Public Libraries will open at noon, and Somerville Recreation has arranged for Open Gym in the Somerville High School gym, and public skating at Veterans’ Memorial Rink, both from noon to 3 p.m. tomorrow. City buildings will be open at 8:30 a.m. for all other business. As a reminder, trash is delayed by one day for the rest of the week.

Property owners are also reminded that you will have six daylight hours tomorrow to clear sidewalks abutting your property of snow and ice. Sidewalks not cleared by 1 p.m. on Wednesday may result in tickets each day until the sidewalk is clear. However, because we expect rain to move in and temperatures will drop well below freezing overnight, we urge property owners to clear sidewalks as soon as possible to prevent dangerous conditions.

As crews continue to work to clear snow and ice from streets, sidewalks, and lots, they will also work to shovel out fire hydrants and catch basins. If you are willing and able, we greatly appreciate any assistance from residents in shoveling hydrants and catch basins in your area.

If you have a non-emergency question, please call 311 (or 617-666-3311 from outside the city).

This was sent to me via the Facebooks, and I thought I'd share it here. I'll be happy to send along any leads.

Friends! it’s been a heck of a winter and [partner] and I are moving. Our landlords just sold our place (it took less than a week) and we have to be out by the end of April. While our heart and lives are in Somerville, we’re also looking at East Arlington, Medford, Cambridge, Watertown on the Cambridge border, and so on. Do you know any great, sunny places available by May 1? We’re seeking:
- 2+ bedrooms (many times we’re both working from home)
- cat-friendly
- sunny/good light
- parking for one car (street OK)
- Red Line accessible (bus connection OK)
- hardwood floors (allergies)
- good kitchen
- May 1 or earlier lease
Is this impossible? Could there even be laundry in the building? We’ll find out! PM us if you have any leads, on places or a realtor you love. Thank you!
 
 
Hello, this is Jackie Rossetti with important snow emergency information for Tuesday, March 14.

Based on weather forecasts for a strong Nor’Easter that could bring up to 18 inches of snow along with heavy winds, Somerville is declaring a snow emergency to go into effect 12 a.m. Tuesday morning, however residents may begin moving cars to the even side of the street (unless otherwise posted) immediately, and into designated municipal and school lots after 8 p.m. tonight. Residents must move cars to the EVEN numbered side of the street (unless signage on your street says otherwise), by 4 a.m. Tuesday morning, or will be ticketed and towed. Again, anyone unable to find parking on the correct side of the street may park in any municipal or school parking lot beginning at 8 p.m. Monday evening. Full snow emergency and snow removal policies may be found on the City’s website at http://www.somervillema.gov/snow.

Additionally, please note that trash pickup will be delayed by one day for the remainder of this week, and that there will be NO TRASH PICKUP ON TUESDAY. Somerville Public Schools and all branches of the Somerville Public Library will be closed Tuesday, and all City events have been canceled. City offices will be closed Tuesday, however 311 will remain open, and the City’s social media feeds will be available for questions and concerns.

If you have a non-emergency question or service request, please call 311 (or 617-666-3311 from cell phones or from outside the city). In case of emergency, dial 911.

Thank you as always for your cooperation and patience during this winter season.

Near the corner of Wallace and Holland, I found some items strewn about the sidewalk this morning, from what looked like the aftermath of a bag snatch or car shenanigans: contents of a Jeep Cherokee manual, a toiletry bag, band aids, and what looks like some sort of prescription liquid packets, and a few other random items. Nothing valuable really, but I'm posting here just in case.
 
 
According to the Tufts Daily, the owners of Dave's are going to open a restaurant and bar called Semolina Kitchen and Bar in late spring on the edge of the Tufts campus, near the Collaborative Innovation and Learning Complex at 574 Boston Ave. This the is big renovation Tufts did to the warehouse-like space across from St. Clement's.

“We’re going to be open in the morning for coffee, pastries … and a more continental-type breakfast, and then [we’ll] go into lunch and then into dinner,” Theophanis said.

The new restaurant will be a causal place for food and drink, Theophanis said. In addition, there will be take-out service and a pizza oven.


Seems like an odd place for anything other than a weekday lunch place for students & faculty. There's not much after hours traffic down there.

https://tuftsdaily.com/news/2017/03/10/owners-of-daves-fresh-pasta-to-open-new-restaurant-near-574-boston-ave/

Doing a little research, it looks like this is the space, which I just assumed was Tufts property:

Hi friends!

I have a friend coming from out of town who will be visiting for too long to keep in my house (I don't want to stress my roommates). We need a relatively cheap hotel/motel/whatever from Monday afternoon to Friday morning the last week of March.

Neither of us will have a car, so T accessible would be heavily preferred. We are collectively kinda brokeasses, so cheap is also preferred. I recognize this is asking the impossible, but yanno, DSLJ is full of clever and helpful people who might be able to pull the impossible off.

Thank you!

A close college friend for whom money is tight has a somewhat precipitous move, and is willing to drive wherever in the Boston area to pick up boxes. ron_newman thought it would be okay to post since I know a bunch of folks in Davis-ish and she would be willing to drive to Davis to fetch.

To quote:
"I am moving from Brookline to Belmont, and am in need of boxes. If you have suitable boxes, I can pick them up from you almost anywhere in greater Boston. I have a car.

Any size moving-compatible boxes are welcome. I have some liquor store boxes already, and intend to continue acquiring those, but if you have that size and/or larger, and/or clean packing materials, I would be grateful.

I have begun the packing process, and am unsure of exactly how long this will take, but probably will complete the move over the course of the next week or two."
Probably easiest to email me on vvalkyri on gmail and I'll get folks in touch.

Thanks!
 
 
The owner of the former Ideal Engine is proposing multiple tenants in that space and is seeking zoning relief, including some parking relief.  They will host a neighborhood meeting this evening at 6:30 P.M. at the site (100 Dover St.) to review the plans and answer questions. My understanding is that the space will be subdivided, with one portion leased by a small technology company and the other portion by Candlewick Press as an expansion to their existing location across the street.

Come to Ford Hall Forum's FREE, PUBLIC discussion on Sanctuary Cities with Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone this Thursday!

Read more...Collapse )
Municipalities all over the country are discussing whether they should become “sanctuary cities” for illegal immigrants and refugees. Some have long considered themselves sanctuary cities, but world events — including an increase of refugees due to the Syrian War and a new American administration eager to censure illegal immigrants — have brought the policy to the forefront.

However, even those who are informed about current affairs have difficulty understanding the precise definition of sanctuary cities and whether establishing them is a sound policy to promote immigrant rights. Join Ford Hall Forum for a discussion with Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone and New England School of Law professor Dina Haynes on the role of sanctuary cities in immigration policy.
