PROPS FOR THE SHOP THAT DROPPED UBER COP

With the car stopped at E 2nd and M Street, the report says “the suspect began hitting the victim.” The Uber driver said he then removed his seatbelt and exited the vehicle, only for the suspect to begin “chasing the victim around the motor vehicle.”

    PROPS FOR THE SHOP THAT DROPPED UBER COP
    In the past two weeks alone, the Dig has been excited to see several stories that we first dug into, in some cases with help from the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism, that have since been picked up by the larger mainstream media.

    KNOW THE REGS: HANDY CHECKLISTS AND REQUIREMENTS
    Sound excruciating? Perhaps, but don't even bother applying if you're afraid of compliance. We will comb through the innumerable rules of cannabis biz upkeep in the coming weeks, but at this point just consider a few of the state's "General Operational Requirements for Marijuana Establishments"

    A (GREATER BOSTON) GUIDE FOR THE JAZZ PERPLEXED
    If you haven't been scared off by unfunny hipster parodies of the genre in the New Yorker and want to hear some live jazz, I salute you. I'm here for you. As a musician, jazz writer, and longtime denizen of many local joints, I will try to make the process of choosing a place to go as undaunting as possible.

DIRTY OLD BOSTON: HEROIN DAZE

...Boston’s “Heroin Square,” a notorious nook in the South End, near the corner of Columbus and Warren avenues, where dealers roamed free and operated with little to no interference from law enforcement...

    DIRTY OLD BOSTON: HEROIN DAZE
    From January to September of 2017, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) confirmed 932 opioid-related deaths. While such reports are increasingly unsettling, Massachusetts and especially the city of Boston are no strangers to such plagues, as our complicated and disheartening history with hard drugs spans more than a century, dating back to the inception of synthetic heroin and prescription opioids in the early 1900s.

POWDER WALKING (A WINTER HIKING SPECIAL)

[125 Arborway, Jamaica Plain. Directions using public transportation: Orange Line to Forest Hills, then walk up the Arborway to the main entrance on the left. Map: arboretum.harvard.edu/wp-content/uploads/basic-map-b+w.pdf]

    POWDER WALKING (A WINTER HIKING SPECIAL)
    It wasn't much of a winter last year, as snow was on the ground for, oh, a few hours or so, but this year has already seen its share of the white stuff, and there's a lot more of the winter to get through. So what is one to do?

THE YEAR(S) IN CASEY OVERPASS REPLACEMENT PICS

    THE YEAR(S) IN CASEY OVERPASS REPLACEMENT PICS
    When it comes to the Forest Hills neck of Jamaica Plain, there are two kinds of Bostonians: those who regularly have to navigate around the area, and who spend several hours a week cursing those responsible for the eternal inconvenience that's the morphing of the Casey Overpass into a "multimodal at-grade roadway," and those who haven't gone anywhere near JP since the construction began.

    FLEA SCENE: A NEAR-DEFINITIVE LIST OF HOLIDAY MARKETS
    The term "flea market" is lifted and true to its provenance of " marché aux puces." According to Mental Floss , the phrase was first uttered in France during the 1880s, when shoppers coined it to describe items on sale, such as used furniture, that looked as if they had become sanctuaries for said insects.

At shortly past five o’clock in the morning, a team of 12 Ludlow officers—amounting to more than a quarter of the town’s entire police force—arrived at the house of a suspected drug dealer.

    SMALL TOWN SWAT TEAM: A SPECIAL INVESTIGATION INTO THE 'MILITARIZATION OF MAYBERRY' IN MASS
    For a police department of only 40 officers, the April 23, 2015, raid by Ludlow Special Response Team had to be an all-hands-on-deck affair. At shortly past five o'clock in the morning, a team of 12 Ludlow officers-amounting to more than a quarter of the town's entire police force-arrived at the house of a suspected drug dealer.

GALLERY REVIEW: Annette Lemieux: Mise en Scène—Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Show runs until 3.4.18. Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave., Boston. mfa.org

    GALLERY REVIEW: Annette Lemieux: Mise en Scène-Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
    Annette Lemieux's work looks simple and spare, but it's actually quite dense stuff. The artist, who won the MFA's Maud Morgan Prize this year, is stripping iconic imagery from film and literature to its hollow, lonely core. The spacing of the pieces around the Lubin Gallery and Lemieux's rehashing of old images highlights how much alienation is encoded within them.
