St. Clement Anchors Football Sports Update by Colin Walsh: The St. Clement Anchors matched up against the Defending Super Bowl Champion Cathedral Panthers this past Saturday and both teams put on a great defensive clinic. Cathedral had lost only one game since 2010, which was a controversial loss in the 2011 Super Bowl. St. Clement relished the roll of underdog and used it as motivation. “We knew we had the horses to be in the race with Cathedral we just had to execute the game plan” said Assistant Head Coach George Murray. On its first possession Senior QB Michael Sullivan connected with Senior Khaneil Bruce for a 25 yard TD pass. Senior Deron Hines added the conversion run and that is all the scoring that would be done until two minutes to play. Cathedral quickly answered dashing through St. Clement defenders to set up a 1st and goal from the two on its first possession. The Anchors settled down and stuffed Cathedral on 4 straight plays to turn the ball over on downs. For the next 36 minutes each team traded defensive stands forcing punts and fourth down stops. In the fourth quarter the St. Clement offense took over. The Anchors went to the ground attack and let Deron Hines carry the team on his back grinding out first downs to control the clock. With 2:18 to go Sullivan hit Senior Junior Oyaronbi for a 30 yard strike after a fake to Hines and St. Clement fans and players went into a frenzy. On cathedrals first play Bruce intercepted a pass and the victory was sealed. St. Clement takes over first place in in the Catholic Central League with the victory.

Sullivan announces mobile office hours next three Saturdays Alderman Dennis Sullivan to hold neighborhood mobile office hours next three Saturdays. Sullivan will make stops across city to hear from residents. Somerville – October 14th was the first one – Alderman at Large Dennis Sullivan held his mobile neighborhood office hours across the city for the next three Saturdays. He’s held more than 125 office hours since being elected to the board to meet and learn from residents and share ideas. Sullivan will make the following stops as part of his fall office hours: Saturday, Oct. 19: outside the East Branch library on lower Broadway at 10am, followed by the Union Square Dunkin’ Donuts at 11am. Saturday, Oct. 26: outside Dunkin’ Donuts at the corner of Highland Ave. and Central Street at 10am, followed by the Winter Hill Post Office at 11amSaturday, Nov. 2: in the heart of Ball Square at 9am, followed by Statue Park in Davis Square at 10am, and concluding in Teele Square at 11am“I believe that municipal government works better when we listen and that’s why I bring my office hours to street corners and neighborhoods across the city to talk to residents, gain insight from there, and talk about how we move forward together,” said Sullivan. “Somerville has made great strides in transportation, the environment and smart growth development, but there is still much work to be done. I’m looking forward to meeting with residents and talking about what the future holds for our community,” said Sullivan. Sullivan takes the mobile office — a banner and table — twice per year to each one of the city’s seven wards, and once during the colder months at either a local grocery store or library. Sullivan argues that while nothing can replace “face to face discussion,” he posts updates on social media as well. Office hours are weather permitting. If they are rescheduled they will be announced via @aldsullivan on twitter and via Facebook.

Supporting Food Day in Massachusetts October 24th. What does a local food system look like? Somerville is the densest city in New England, topping the population scale at 77,104 in 4.2 sq. miles of space. Somerville’s lack of open space and its rich industrial history (contaminated soil is a challenge that residents face when attempting to garden) allows for an endless amount of creativity that people are using to participate in the ‘grow your own’ movement. From porches to rooftops, raised beds to reclaimed lots, businesses, individuals, and youth are building crop knowledge and farming experience as a community. Although Somerville has a long way to go to create the kind of autonomy from the global food system that many cities around the world are striving for, there are features that should be celebrated for its innovation and forward thinking for a healthier, collaborative, and resilient community.
