Suffolk County Sobriety Checkpoint Planned Friday

Massachusetts State Police will be operating a sobriety checkpoint this week at an undisclosed location in Suffolk County. The checkpoint will operate sometime between Friday, June 7 and Saturday, June 8. “The purpose is to further educate the motoring public and strengthen the public’s awareness to the need of detecting and removing those motorists who operate under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs from our roadways,” Colonel Timothy P. Alben, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, said in a press release. Alben noted that, “The selection of vehicles will not be arbitrary, safety will be assured, and any inconveniences to motorists will be minimized with advance notice to reduce fear and anxiety.” For more information, visit the State Police website, www.mass.gov/msp.

South End to Get New Public Art on Friday

Several local artists and organizations are coming together in the South End on Friday to present a new public art project.  Brookline artist and resident Tony Lopes commissioned a sculpture designed by award-winning local artist David Phillips, called “Dancing with Spheres,” to be unveiled at 2 p.m. at the Animal Rescue League of Boston’s dog play yard at 10 Chandler St. on May 31.  Phillips, a Medford resident, is known for his sculptures which can be found throughout the United States and Japan. His portfolio of public art includes the frogs at Boston Common’s Tadpole Playground and the snails of Quincy Square Park in Cambridge, as well as many other installations across Greater Boston.  This is the first time in several years that a large sculpture will be unveiled in Boston. Billed as “Boston’s newest icon” and “a place where art and animals come to play,” the sculpture was designed specifically to fit into the atmosphere of the dog play yard. This particular area of the South End at the intersection of Arlington, Herald and Tremont Streets is one of the first pieces of a renaissance of development in the area, with an the Ink Block development, a large apartment complex on Albany Street, and an incoming Whole Foods market.  “All involved hope the sculpture will attract more art and animal lovers to the neighborhood,” the Animal Rescue League said in a statement.  “The Animal Rescue League of Boston is incredibly honored to receive this major gift that celebrates why we do what we do,” said League President Mary Nee. “It stands on its own as a magnificent piece of public art that enhances the South End community and the city of Boston, and will hopefully inspire more people to adopt more animals from us and experience even greater joy.” The work of art incorporates spheres that link various animals in motion and reference a dog and a human playing fetch, according to the ARL’s statement. Some elements have personal meaning for Phillips, such as a dog holding an ice cream cone that was inspired by his niece’s ice cream business and her dearly departed dog Scoop. A bronze feline was inspired by the artist’s 19-year-old cat Luna. Another unique part of the sculpture is its production: rarely does a sculpture go from conceptualization to completion under one roof. Phillips did the bronze casting and stainless steel fabrication at his studio, Hillside Sculpture Studios, in Medford. The man behind the statue, Lopes, is a retired teacher from the Framingham Public School system. He said he was eager to find an artist who could recreate the sense of awe and happiness he feels when […]

Menino Having Prostate Surgery on Friday

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino is scheduled to have surgery later this week at Brigham and Women’s Hospital to reduce his enlarged prostate. “This Friday Mayor Menino is having elective surgery to correct a very common issue among men of his age. The elective surgery will take a few hours and require a few days in the hospital and some recovery at home,” said Dot Joyce, press secretary for Boston. “The Mayor is expected to make a full and complete recovery. The Mayor and his family thank you again for your tremendous outpouring of support and concern and wants to reassure everyone that he will be fine.”  The mayor’s primary care physician, Dr. Charles Morris said the surgery would shrink the mayor’s prostate in an effort to give him a better ability to empty his bladder, he told the Globe. And Morris wanted to make it clear Menino’s surgery is not due to prostate cancer, he told the Globe, “This is being done for a benign, harmless condition that, nevertheless, causes symptoms that are noxious and unpleasant.” SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

Friday Morning Forecast: Snow Totals Closer to 3 Feet

Boston residents waking Friday morning expecting to see a blanket of snow will be surprised to see that the streets remain clear, with just the occasional flurry drifting down. But weather forecasters maintain: The storm is coming. And when it does, it may be bigger than previously expected. A National Weather Service blizzard warning update posted early Friday morning states that the “historic winter storm and blizzard” could drop up to 3 feet of snow on the area, rather than the 1-2 feet expected yesterday. The alert covers the Boston area as well as much of eastern and southern Massachusetts, southeastern New Hampshire and all of Rhode Island. The NWS alert calls for “heavy snow … blowing and drifting at times” with quarter-mile visibilities and wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour. Accumulation is expected to top 2 feet. Light snow will develop by this morning, becoming heavy late in the day into the evening commute,” according to the National Weather Service. “The heaviest snow, especially focused along the I-95 corridor, will fall tonight into Saturday.” Temperatures will be in the upper 20s throughout the storm. The National Weather Service further advises people to avoid using roads during the storm’s peak, when “whiteout conditions are anticipated as roads become snow covered.” The strong winds and heavy snow may cause damage to trees and structures and could result in scattered power outages, the NWS alert states.
