Improvements are needed for the crosswalk at this busy intersection. The corner of Medford & Thurston Sts @ St Ann's church is very busy, especially at Mass times on Saturday evening and Sunday mornings. The only markings are the painted crosswalk and a sign which is turned inward and cannot be seen clearly. Many elderly folks use this crossing for church service and it needs to be upgraded. Perhaps one of those new solar lighted pedestrian signs that have been popping up around town.
An abundance of rats living in the backyard of this house and abutting yards on Henry St. a resident is feeding pigeons and now the rats. They have increased exponentially in the past week endangering pets, vegetable gardens and human life.
Found a dead rat in the middle of my driveway 12/13/13. No obvious cause of death. No garbage/food trash outside on my property so I'm not sure why I got a rat visit. Lucky, I guess? (I bagged and disposed of it)
