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)
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.
When i called 311 they asked how big "the pothole" was. I said Pothole singular how about POTHOLES plural. There are a ton of them. You can't dodge them because there are so many and they are all about 3ft across and 8 inches deep. Is the city going to pay for my new tire? Or my new axle?

The crossing guard lady in this intersection is not respecting the traffic lights signals and this happens every single weekday. My understanding is in Massachusetts the crossing guards are not allowed to direct traffic and additional this traffic light in particular is working perfectly with signals for pedestrians and cars as well.
Crossing guards roles are to create an adequate gap in traffic for children to cross the street safely. I am inviting you to see how this lady is doing her job.
