DSC_0150

April 1, 2016 By Journal Staff-Seth Daniel The Garfield Middle School has been chosen as one of two schools statewide to participate in a $450,000 grant program by the Center for Collaborative Education – a grant that will try to bring the middle school in line with the high school’s Student Centered Learning model. “It will be an effort to expand what’s happening at the high school already,” said Supt. Dianne Kelly. “We want to have Student-Centered Learning at all schools in the future. This will be the first time we’ve expanded the model beyond the high school, which is significant.” The Center for Collaborative Education said the time is now to change the way teachers introduce information to students. “As the state’s student population grows more diverse, the one-size-fits-all model of schooling from the past will not close achievement gaps or produce citizens who are equipped with the knowledge, …

revere1

Filed Under: Carl Stevens, Christina Hager, Ice, Revere February 15, 2016   WBZ-TV  CBS Boston REVERE (CBS) — A floodgate problem over the weekend led to flooding and ice damage at homes on Arcadia Street at Oakland Island in Revere.   A pool of ice has formed under an Arcadia Street home in Revere. (WBZ-TV) Maureen Sullivan is one of many residents in the area who are putting the pieces back together on Monday. “Who’s going to pay for all the damage that’s done?” she asked. Revere has spent about $2 million trying to fix a floodgate, which is supposed to prevent the tide from flowing over a gully and gushing into the neighborhood. But the floodgate was so cold this weekend that it froze open, turning yards into crunchy, salty ice rinks.   Saltwater flooded into a Revere neighborhood over the weekend, creating ice skating rink-type yards.

Plover image

Pairs of piping plovers have increased to 689 in Massachusetts. Protection efforts now target chicks. By David Abel BOSTON GLOBE STAFF JANUARY 22, 2016   (Globe staff file image) Fences that have barred beachgoers from prime spots along the Atlantic surf may come down this summer as the federal government prepares to relax restrictions designed to protect the piping plover in Massachusetts. The US Fish and Wildlife Service this week released a draft plan — the first of its kind along the East Coast — that would allow state and local beach officials far more flexibility in managing the increasing number of the sand-colored birds that have taken up residence on shores along Massachusetts, often throughout the summer. The plovers, which were deemed threatened under the Endangered Species Act in 1986, have riled many beachgoers, as officials in recent years fenced off increasingly large swaths of beaches from Cape Ann …

DSC_0041

Story by Revere Advocate – Staff Excited residents flooded City Hall Monday to watch a new mayor, city council and school committee take the oath of office. When new mayor Brian Arrigo, walked into City Hall, he was greeted with a loud applause and standing ovation. “We love you, Brian,” a supporter yelled from the audience. So many attended the swearing-in ceremony that some had to watch from the hallway. Arrigo did not give a speech Monday night, as the ceremony had to be curtailed after a recount delayed preparations for the event. A full ceremony is to come later in the month. The new mayor defeated incumbent Mayor Dan Rizzo by a vote of 5,210 to 5,102. A recount occurred at the end of December, officially declaring Arrigo mayor of Revere.

RVR_20160106_A1-1

Bunsreng Sok of Thmor Da Restaurant on Shirley Avenue has been an early voice in the new effort of businesses on The Ave to organize into an association. So far, they’ve had one meeting and are looking towards more, but the ideas are coming quickly. Sok said to get more people to come to his restaurant or any other business, everyone has to work together to make the street comfortable, clean and safe. January 7, 2016 By Seth Daniel-Revere Journal For years, Shirley Avenue has been a bustling center of business, but none of the businesses have ever been able to unite behind creating a unified district as exists in our areas. That, however, has changed recently as businesses have begun to unite to form one voice. There were occasional complaints, or calls for help here and there to the City, but it was a fractured effort. Now, that is …
