Menino Sends Letter to Newtown

A letter from Boston mayor Thomas M. Menino:

Dear Selectman Llodra,

On behalf of the people of Boston I thank you and the people of Newtown for sending me the banner filled with signatures and words of prayer and support. All of us were very moved by this kind and thoughtful gesture. As such, we have proudly displayed the banner in the lobby of Boston City Hall for all to see and appreciate.

In the aftermath of the attack at the Boston Marathon, our city has been flooded with offers of support and prayers from around the world. None of them, however, meant as much as the banner you sent from Newtown. You know the darkest depths of tragedy, but you also know that unity, resilience and strength allow us to triumph over terror. Your community has inspired and comforted ours as we remember those whose lives were senselessly taken and care for the survivors and their families.

Once again, I thank you for your generosity and kindness. Rest assured Boston and Newtown stand together, not just during tough days but for all days. read more

Letter: Tree Removal on Tremont Street Comes as a Surprise

Dear Editor,

This morning I woke up to the pleasant noise of chain saws and wood chippers outside my windows.

I look out and the city has cut down 3-4 beautiful trees that lined our street. There was no notice of this happening, and they destroyed my privacy and curb appeal. 

I know that other residents of the area were upset as well. The trees were beautiful and healthy. They withstood the winds of Sandy without breaking a limb. 

The trees were located alongside the building 655 Tremont Street on W. Brookline where Gold Gallery is. 

My windows are directly above Gold Gallery looking out onto W. Brookline. I now have no privacy, and the street looks horrible. They also destroyed our brick sidewalk in the process. 

I thought I would bring this to your attention so we can get some neighborhood awareness about this, and prevent things like this happening in the future. 

Let me know if you have any questions, and go take a look; it is bad! read more
