St. James Construction Update

At our meeting of June 18th, Phil Terzis of Acorn and Jeff Zinsmeyer of St. James Church walked us through the status and construction schedule.  We also heard how they were managing social distancing, masks, and other means of protecting workers, etc.

To ensure public safety and accessibility, Scout will not be delivering print editions to newsstands and businesses during the pandemic. Our goal is to come back bigger and better. Your support will help make this massive undertaking possible.

This media in our region is often controlled by billionaires and hedge funds. Content farming and SEO hoarding are more prevalent than actual reporting. Which is why independent media is more important than ever. 

Another Peaceful "Stand Out Against Racism" at Porter Square

The neighborhood had another peaceful "Stand Out" at Porter Square to register our outrage over the killing of George Floyd by police officers.  The outrage, of course, has spread to protest the structural racism in many other parts of our society.

Many of our protestors moved on at noon to a My Brother's Keeper voter registration event at Cambridge Common. A great idea!

And there are "stand outs" every night (at 6:30pm), in the median of Mass Ave/Linnaean St, and way down toward the Common.
