Arlington Election Results

Unofficial results are in from Arlington’s Annual Town Election held Saturday, April 1st.  The lack of major uncontested races meant low turn-out. According to town clerk, Stephanie Lucarelli just under 9 percent of 30-thousand registered voters cast ballots during the snowy day.  That’s down from 15 percent from last years annual town election when there were contests for the Board of Selectman and School Committee. Two precincts saw hotly contested races for town meeting members, precinct 7 in East Arlington and  precinct 15 in the Stratton School neighborhood. Three incumbents in that district were voted out of their seats. Precinct...

Restorative Justice

In partnership with the Community for Restorative Justice (C4RJ), the Arlington Police Department is giving first-time misdemeanor offenders a second chance through restorative justice programs. Restorative Justice is a way to give the victim a voice and to let perpetrators see the impact of their actions, and it allows both the victim and the perpetrator to see each other as humans.   “For many years, the Arlington Police Department has been in partnership with the Community for Restorative Justice. They’re a private non-profit restorative justice organization. They’re actually the only restorative justice provider that’s recognized in the commonwealth.” – Chief Richard Flynn. The Arlington Police Department is one of twelve towns that are reference partners with the Community for Restorative Justice, as is the Middlesex District Attorney’s office.   For more information about the C4RJ, whom they serve, and how they help, visit their website at...

India Trip – Week 1

Coming home is one of the best feelings in the world. That is how I felt when I exited Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport in Mumbai and took a black and yellow cab home. My extended family lives in the city and we stayed at my uncle’s place in Mumbai, which is a fast-paced city where everyone follows a clock schedule and does almost everything and anything but nobody ever has time. You can either hate Mumbai or love Mumbai, but you can never ignore it. Locals lovingly call it ‘amachi mumbai’ or My Mumbai. Mumbai is the most populous city in India and in some ways is comparable to New York. It is a conglomeration of seven islands, has high population density and insane traffic, and it is the commercial and financial centre of India. The weather in Mumbai is temperate like Los Angeles and, like L.A., it is also the entertainment hub of the country.   For me, Mumbai = black & yellow cab + hair cut + food + fun with cousins + street shopping   Mumbai is my paradise, I have always felt at home there and love the vibe of the city. I always go to Mumbai with an agenda. There is always a to-do list and most of the time it is the same. This time was no exception. Every time I go to...

Adam Kalogeros

My name is Adam Kalogeros and I am currently a sophomore studying at Merrimack College in North Andover, Massachusetts. As of now I am majoring in Mass Communication and minoring in Fine Arts/Digital Design with the hope of double majoring next year. I both write and produce my own radio show called the LiveWire on WMCK Merrimack College Radio. I aspire to be a radio show host in the Greater Boston area at a station such as Radio 92.9.   I am also a part of the Radio Club at Merrimack College, as well as the chief marketer for the brand-new student run Film Club. I am in charge of designing all logos, flyers, etc. to help bring in members, and to help give the club a professional look.   This two-week externship at ACMi was my first real taste of the professional world, and the experience, while abbreviated due to sickness, has been an enjoyable one. I was taught how to properly use a video camera (both freehand and with a tripod), and how to set up a microphone (both wired and wireless), along with many other valuable skills. I look forward to what the future holds for me, and I cannot wait to apply the skills and knowledge I have gained here at ACMi to further my...
