    an inordinately large group of people on the lawn who had set up corn hole. None had masks and they far from distant. I assume they are students coming in for the new year. It would be a shame if all the success in public health measures put in place are undone by groups like this.

    1am to now still non-stop fireworks
    I don’t get it. It’s the same spot as the ones happened between 10pm and 11pm. Called the CPD and being told officers are on their way. How could it possible that it’s still happening now. Same spot over the past three weeks that I can tell. Please do the job!

    As you probably know, mid-Cambridge has become infested by rats over the past few months. My neighbors and I are trying to figure out best practices and environmentally safe strategies to reduce the number of rats that are running across our patios, setting up homes in our yards, eating holes through our trash bins, etc.

    For example, two doors down from me, there is an old tree stump in my neighbor's yard with at least six large holes (4-5 inches in diameter) dug in the dirt next to the stump. I have seen multiple rats go in and out of these holes and through my yard, eating all the plants. My neighbors acknowledge that rats are indeed living on their property, but they have declined to address the issue.

    I have called an exterminator to consult about the problem, but I don't even know if it is legal for me to do anything to the rats, and I certainly don't want to harm any pets or other animals in the neighborhood. However, because rats reproduce every three weeks, I don't think the right answer is to do absolutely nothing. Eventually, the rats will make their way indoors.

    Can you please let know the city's recommendations for handling this sort of situation? I would really appreciate it.

    So is the city going to do anything here to stop this besides just a single cop car cruising by and then leaving? This has been going on from noon today, it’s now 2am and the response has been pathetic. Now you have small fires happening around the area and people are just supposed to be ok with it? CPD and the housing authority need to fix this ASAP before tensions build more and more in this neighborhood. Just creating an angry and annoyed community environment.

    It is heartbreaking the extent that Lorenz Park and the area around the library and CRLS has been allowed to decay over the past several months. What was once a beautiful public gathering spot for all, is becoming a blight on the neighborhood.

    The park has not been maintained. Grass is overgrown, trash overflowing, human feces and other hazardous materials litter the bushes.

    Despite having a shelter available in the Field House, encampments around the park are more numerous that ever, and the people squatting here never wear masks. This morning, a young lady was brushing her teeth and spitting on the steps and walkway in front of the rindge room of the library, while a needle was found under one of the park benches. This is unacceptable considering taxpayers are paying for CPD to be parked on Dana Street full time with a sharps bucket in the road.

    What was once the vibrant heart of the neighborhood, is now unnecessarily a place to be avoided. Yet another way the city has failed its residents during this time.

    My partner and I were biking toward Central Square when a driver came behind us honking and eventually screaming that we need to be in the bike lane. When I pointed out that the bike lane was for traveling in the opposite direction, she screamed expletives and drove around us THROUGH the bike lane herself to pass us, running the stop sign.

    We weren't breaking any rules and we were moving in the direction of the travel lane. I am so sick of being threatened on these residential streets. Can we please have a safe route between Inman and Central Squares? Can we please have infrastructure that isn't paint on a road? Can we please regularly cite drivers who endanger people on bicycles? I don't want to become the next white bike in Cambridge. I'm sick of feeling like I might instigate someone to hurt or kill me just for existing in their way. Isn't Cambridge supposed to be different?

    The driver was a woman with a green SUV and New Hampshire plates, but it doesn't matter because this isn't the first or the last time.

    Why are people camping out in front of the library? The have tents and hammocks set up for multiple days. They scream, shout, and drink on the corner while everyone else pays high costs to live around here.
