Things to Know in the South End Today, May 6: Your Editor Returns

Soaking my toes in the Blue Lagoon, Iceland.

1. Weather: The National Weather Service is predicting a sunny day, with a high near 68 degrees.

2. Back From Vacation: Usually I do a better job explaining ahead of time that I’m taking a vacation, but with the events at this year’s marathon I actually felt quite guilty to leave! As it happened, police located Tsarnaev inside the boat just as I was boarding my plane to Iceland. I had never been so relieved! So if you’ve been missing my regular standard of South End reporting over the last few weeks, never fear, I am back, and I’ll be keeping you informed once again about news and happenings in the South End. I had an incredible vacation in Iceland and then in Paris, and I highly recommend both places. I’ve included just one photo from my vacation. Jealous yet? 

3. SoWa’s Back: This weekend marked the beginning of the SoWa season, which will run from now through October, and promises to be even bigger and better than ever. Hundreds of vendors and crafters will be in the neighborhood every Sunday, including about 40 food trucks. See here for more details

4. Help Finding a Job: If you’re in need of new computer and professional skills, check out the Online Learning Readiness Program at the Boston Neighborhood Network. It’s a training program geared at helping job seekers become more attractive to prospective employers, improve computer skills, create effective resumes, cover letters and more. See here for more information.
