We wonder what’s going on at the Somerville DPW with its lenthy investigation of allegations of abuse of over time hours and slips? With all that overwhelming evidence at hand, one really begins to wonder what the outcome will be? Well we hear that the local internal investigation has ended and a more intense-higher level investigation is hovering over the doorstep just waiting for the word to knock on the doors of those involved? Well with the AG runnig for governor, we hope that this isnt going to be used as a bargaining tool of any sort just in case our Mayor Joe jumps into the race for governor as well. We will just have to wait and see within the next few weeks but who are we to know?

Did anyone happen to notice the new building being built down in Assembly Square and the views of the newly constructed apartment complex at Assembly Row in Somerville that are now obstructed by a building being constructed directly in front of its windows blocking its views. Over the past month or so the newly constructed gigantic office building sprang from the ground up which seems like overnight to neighbors down at the Assembly Row construction site. Not even thirty days ago this office building was nowhere to be found and the buildings behind it had clear views of the calm waters of the Mystic River, otherwise known to some as “Somerville’s Waterfront

Did anyone notice the turn around that is located beneath the Route 93 overpass that sits in between on both sides of the road between Broadway and Mystic Avenue near the Mt Vernon Restaurant in Somerville that leads down to the Assembly Square Mall got a much-needed facelift. When recently revamped only a few years ago, some graffiti artist overtook control of the wall’s exterior and used it as a giant blackboard. Recently this week a gigantic mural overlay was affixed to the concrete graffitied over walls of the underpass and created a breath of fresh air with a wonderful masterpiece for commuters to look at as they are passing by coming to and from Rt93 while passing by Assembly Square!
