This Valentine’s Day, We Heart Brookline Small Businesses

The series of snowstorms in the Boston area have hit local businesses hard, especially small Brookline independents that depend on foot traffic and street parking—both of which have been in short supply. With spotty "T" service, make it easy on yourself this year and stay local for Valentine's Day. With the scenery already looking like a scene out of Dr. Zhivago, you're halfway to romance already.

Flag Raising Ceremony To Honor Veteran William L. Mccarthy

On Monday, February 9, 2015 at 8:00am the Town of Brookline will honor late US Navy Veteran William L. McCarthy with an official flag raising ceremony at the Veterans’ Memorial in front of Town Hall at 333 Washington St. Brookline, MA. This ceremony will be conducted by the Veterans’ Services Office.

Brookline Celebrates the 5th Annual Climate Week

With all the snow dumped on Brookline in the past week, after football the weather is probably the second most popular topic in town. According to an article in National Geographic magazine, “More extreme storms are expected to fall on the Northeast as climate changes.”

‘Bad Art’ Is Celebrated At Brookline Museum

We try to avoid looking at it, but it is everywhere. It pollutes our office hallways, hangs in our ex’s bedroom, and too often decorates the café walls. Bad art. We hate it, but one Boston-area group celebrates the hideous and inexplicably tacky. They call themselves the Museum of Bad Art and have three locations, one in Brookline, where you can view with humor what you thought you never wanted to see.

2nd Annual "Dancing with the Brookline Stars" Nov. 8 at Our Lady of Annunciation Church

 

October 27, 2014: I have to admit I don’t watch the hit ABC TV show Dancing with the Stars but I get the appeal: minor celebrities from the worlds of sitcoms, sports, and music wearing skimpy outfits and doing their damndest to wow the judges with their over-the-top dance routines. We as viewers imagine ourselves in their dancing shoes, showing off our new moves, perhaps becoming temporary sensations through viral YouTube videos. Who among us hasn’t dreamed of being crowned a dancing queen (or the Tony Manero of the new millennium?)

Take a Trip to Germany Without Leaving Brookline

German Week at Clear Flour Bread is Wed. Oct. 22-Wed.Oct. 29, 2014

October 21, 2014: Starting tomorrow, Clear Flour Bread, 178 Thorndike Street, will begin its third annual German Week at the popular bakery. Baked goods will vary depending on “the bakers’ whim” but will include Poppy Nusstorte (short dough with an almond, sugar, lemon, & rum filling), Bienenstich (sweet, yeasted cake with a layer of whipped cream, topped with honey & almonds—a personal favorite!), Apfelstreusel (short crust with a layer of apples, topped with an almond crumb), and of course, traditional soft German pretzels, with the option of adding mustard butter.

Join Me for Dinner Wednesday Night?

 

This February 17 students from Brookline High School will embark on the "Sojourn To The Past" trip -- a ten day journey to the 5 Southern states to visit sites related to the Civil Rights Movement. The BHS students will meet some of most influential activists from the 1960s and 1970s.  As in past years, the trip will be a life-changing experience for all involved. Pleas join me at the Village Smokehouse on January 29th for a BBQ buffet to support this amazing journey.

Brookline's MLK Celebration Resonates

How great it is that Brookline has an annual event at the Coolidge to commemorate and celebrate Martin Luther King’s dream of equality and and the joint is packed every year? This year may have been the most moving of all the Town’s celebrations to date.

As in past years, BHS US and African American history teacher, Malcolm Cawthorne, emceed the event. The son of a civil rights leader and named after Malcolm X, Malcolm puts “Keeping the Promise” into perspective, “This is a day I always look forward to every year. The MLK celebration always challenges me to think about how I can better my community and myself.  It is truly an honor to be a part of this celebration and a member of a town that thinks enough to have a celebration every year”.


 

One of the highlights of this year’s event was keynote speaker Reverend Liz Walker. Reverend Walker’s “Mission of Grace” speech was nothing short of dynamic. Walker entertained us, moved us, and most of all taught us how we should treat everyone who comes in contact with us. Her talk spanned from being gracious to one and another on the Jamaicaway, how a Sudanese woman showed her grace despite the woman’s circumstance, to MLK teaching activists to show love toward their oppressors, to the grace Nelson Mandela showed his jailers after he was freed. Reverend Walker believes in grace and when she was finished so did every person in the theater.

Key contributors to “Keeping the Promise” were BHS students Tyreik Mosley, Taylor James, Roy’al Sanyika-Hall, Tahira Saaliq, Eana Meng, and Tee Tee Adams; who spoke about education, economic justice, and the struggle of all poor people. Their words inspired along with BHS a cappella groups Note-A-Fy, Perfect Pitch, and the Testostotones.

This year’s Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Committee Chair was Selectman Ken Goldstein.  Goldstein, "This year's Dr. Martin Luther King Day Commemoration marked a renewed effort to keep this event relevant and vibrant.  It is important that we, as a community, take time to celebrate Dr. King, his message and the advancements of the Civil Rights Movement.  It is equally important that we pause to reflect on the substantial work still to be done to build a completely inclusive society.   Many thanks to our keynote speaker, Rev. Liz Walker, for reminding us that grace should be our motivation; to the BHS a cappella groups, for inspiring us with song; to the students of BHS's Sojourn to the Past Program reminding us of the Promise and the struggle still to come; and to Malcolm Cawthorne for keeping it all on track."

Special thanks to committee members Malcolm Cawthorne, Elizabeth Childs, Rob Daves, Lloyd Gellineau, Lynette Glover, Rebecca Joachim, Bobbie Knable, Evelyne Milorin, Larry Onie, Betsy Shure Gross, and Rita McNally.

Good Stuff.
