Suffolk County Sobriety Checkpoint Planned Saturday

State Police.

Massachusetts State Police will be operating a sobriety checkpoint this week at an undisclosed location in Suffolk County.

The checkpoint will operate sometime between Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23.

“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.”

Group Aims to Hold ‘Last Mile’ Run/Walk from Kenmore to Finish Line on Saturday

"Ruckers" run the Marathon with 40-pound packs on April 15, 2013. Here they are in Kenmore Square, a mile before the finish line. A group is trying to hold a "Last Mile" run on Saturday for those who were not able to complete the course before the Marathon shut down.

 

If you were one of the runners forced to end your Marathon early because of the bombings — or someone who just wants to show solidarity — a group is working to let you go “The Last Mile” on Saturday.

Organizers are using Facebook to let people know of the effort. Here’s how they put it:

So, as you have all heard by now, some coward likes to blow up trash cans. In doing so, this person or persons have hindered many from accomplishing something they have been training very hard to do over the past year. This is simple, we are going to Kenmore Square to finish the race for those who ran, and for those who can never run again. Share this with your friends, your families, your enemies, and anyone in between. Come join us and run, jog, walk, limp, wheel, or crawl that last mile.

Organizers say they aren’t sure if they can get the proper permits in time. They also say that, clearly, if the stretch is still a crime scene they don’t want people jogging through and getting themselves arrested. read more

MBTA Service Suspended Saturday

MBTA service will continue to be suspended Saturday.

The now two-day blizzard that has crushed Boston has caused the MBTA to stay shut down through Saturday.

“Due to the impacts of a severe winter storm, MBTA service will remain suspended on all  modes Saturday, February 9, 2013,” says a post on MBTA.com.

MBTA personnel will be clearing tracks in an effort to get the subways, commuter rail trains and buses back up and running.

The MBTA does not have an estimate on when service will resume.

For updates and other information about the Feb. 8-9 winter storm, see South End Patch’s storm center.

Would You Miss Saturday Mail Delivery?

The Postal Service handles more than 44 percent of the world's mail volume — delivering more mail to more addresses and to a larger geographic area than any other postal administration in the world.

The U.S. Postal Service is reportedly announcing on Wednesday that it will stop Saturday first-class mail delivery by Aug. 1, reported CBS News

Mail personnel have delivered mail on Saturdays for 150 years, but the plan is to end regular mail service, while maintaining Saturday delivery for packages and express mail, said CBS News.

The move is the latest attempt by the cash-strapped federal department to save money. It has already cut employees and service, but still reportedly lost $ 16 billion last year.

What do you think about this idea? Would you miss Saturday mail service?
