Floodgate Problem Leads To Flooding, Ice Damage At Revere Homes

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.

US eases rules on Plovers

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.

Businesses on Shirley Avenue look to Organize into an Association

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 …

IMAGE by Pat Greenhouse/Globe Staff Walks on Revere Beach can happen even when the weather is still chilly in spring. Story By Megan Turchi @meganturchi Boston.com Staff December 27, 2015 6:00 AM Though Revere has recently been in the spotlight because of casinos, horse tracks, and controversial new developments, the beachside city is known for a lot more than that. In the summer months, you might have seen Revere Beach, which is the country’s first public beach, on lists of sandy spots accessible by MBTA. You might have also heard of Kelly’s Roast Beef, which has been around since 1951 and claims to have made the first roast beef sandwich. – See more at: http://www.boston.com/real-estate/community/2015/12/27/things-know-about-living-revere/8H0EbKP2Xz9PqzmLtPu83K/story.html?p1=story_hp#sthash.ipst2Qlc.dpuf

Christmas in A Changing World – essay at Robert Marra Sr. ‘Sounds of Christmas’ concert

Screen Shot 2015-12-21 at 7.51.34 PM

December 17, 2015 Story by  Revere Journal Staff by author Meloee Nazaire The author read the following essay during the Robert Marra Sr. ‘Sounds of Christmas’ concert on Sunday in St. Anthony’s Church. It is hoped that this will be the first in a long line of students from the high school to read an essay on Christmas at the annual event. Jane Todd Crawford, a 46-year-old mother of four from Kentucky, thought she had room for one more. As time went on, she grew concerned about her pregnancy. Understanding that she needed medical attention, she sought it. Given the unusual timeline of her pregnancy, doctors thought it’d be best to induce her labor. But they did not find a baby; Jane had been bearing a 22-pound tumor. There was nothing left to do but await death, but Jane was a woman of faith. She refused to believe that there …
