Famous Works from South End Artist Found in Storage, Now Up for Auction

It sounds like the plot of a movie: Important works by a prominent South End artist were found recently in an abandoned locker in western Massachusetts. 

Now, the artwork, a unique collection of works from visual artist Allan Rohan Crite, who was a long-time resident, artist and important figure in the South End for much of the 20th Century, is being put up for auction this weekend. 

The collection features a selection of autobiographical sketches in pencil documenting the African American experience. The works include prints, drawings, and the artist’s personal documents and studio materials, including a mannequin and his mimeograph machines. The works were the content of Crite’s studio that were put into storage in the 1990s when he became ill. 

Crite lived and worked in Boston for most of his life, starting out as a student at the Children’s Art Centre at the United South End Settlements before graduating from English High School in 1929 and earning degrees from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Harvard, and Suffolk. In his later years, he returned to the South End to live at work at the Allan Rohan Crite Research Institute on Columbus Avenue.  In 1986, the intersection of Columbus Avenue and West Canton Street was named Allan Rohan Crite Square. A 2002 Boston Globe review called Mr. Crite “the granddaddy of the Boston art scene,” naming him as “a master of his craft and a treasure of his community.” read more

Legislation Aims to Protect Off-Duty Responders from Lawsuits

Massachusetts State House

The Massachusetts State Senate has unanimously approved a “Good Samaritan Bill” aimed at protecting off-duty first responders from lawsuits if they provide  assistance at an emergency scene.

The issue of protecting first responders and others from lawsuits has come up at various times in recent years, but quickly regained traction in the aftermath of the recent Boston Marathon bombings. 

“While the many off-duty firefighters and EMTs who rushed to help in the aftermath of the Marathon bombings brought this into sharp focus, the fact is we are lucky to have brave men and women who come to the aid of their fellow citizens every day in emergencies from car accidents to heart attacks,” said State Senator Katherine Clark, who chairs the Judiciary Committee. “They shouldn’t have to worry that doing the right thing could result in legal action.”

According to an announcement from Clark’s office, this legislation would specifically place off-duty first responders under the state’s existing Good Samaritan Law, which protects average citizens from frivolous lawsuits if they provide assistance to somebody during an emergency. read more

Experts Suggest Treatment for Those Suffering from Post-Bombing Anxiety

April 22, 2013 - Cross streets from Newbury to Boylston are still closed one week after the bombings as FBI agents continue their investigation.

People who are still struggling to return to their normal way of life in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings should seek treatment now.

The Boston Globe reports posttraumatic stress disorder might begin to show itself around now, four weeks removed from the April 15 attack at the marathon.

Signs could include avoidance of the Boylston Street finish line area, panic attacks triggered by street noise or an overwhelming sense of fear when riding public transportation, the Globe reports.

“While such symptoms commonly occur in the first few days or weeks after witnessing a traumatic event, they usually resolve on their own; if they don’t, mental health specialists often diagnose PTSD,” according to the story.

From Bruisers to Beauties: What’s Your Dream Car?

The magazine "Car Life" did a comparison between the 1966 Pontiac Tempest GTO and it's lesser brethren.

Whether it started with the nearly imperceptible shape and accompanying wail of a passing Italian exotic, hours spent staring down the lines of a German poster car, or your first time slogging through mud that no machine should be able to transverse — all the cars of our dreams have their origins.

My first dream car — and most car people will have at least a few in their life time — began to take form upon hearing my first burbley V8. It was a passing sound that is attached to no vehicle in my memory, but it stuck with me. It wasn’t until I saw the lines of a 1966 Pontiac Tempest GTO that the form took shape. When I heard that boisterous engine while staring at a GTO, I knew that car had worked itself into my mind forever.

Since that time, there have been other vehicles that have gotten lodged in my brain. They have included slinky numbers from Italy, brutal turbocharged beasts from Japan and more than a few cheeky British roadsters. In the end, the Pontiac remains.  read more

Menino: Stop Terror List Suspects from Buying Weapons

Mayor Menino

 

 

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino wants to know how one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was able to get a weapon, despite being on a federal terror watch list. 

“Right now there are thousands of people on terror watch lists who are considered too dangerous to fly on a plane, but when it comes to buying an assault weapon — no problem. It’s crazy,” said Menino to the Boston Herald.

Menino, one of the co-founders of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, said there are glaring loopholes in our federal gun laws, calling it the “Terror Gap”, which enabled Tamerlan Tsarnaev, to get his hands on weapons. Menino said current loopholes allow individuals on terror watch lists to pass background checks to purchase guns legally. 

But some detractors do point out that Tsarnaev did not purchase weapons legally, so it doesn’t matter if he was on a list or not.

According to the Government Accountability Office, individuals on terror watch lists tried to buy guns and explosives 1,453 times between Feb. ’04 and Dec. ’10. And a staggering 91 percent of the time, or 1,321 occasions – the FBI could not block gun or explosives being sold to suspected terrorists. read more
