ICYMI: All eyes were on freshman Daniel Emory at Tuesday night's Boston College Athletics vs. Columbia University in the City of New York as he attempted to hit a golf ball into a hole on the other end of the court. When Daniel hit the shot, he won $1,000 worth of Under Armour gear - and the crowd went wild. The best part? Daniel has never played golf before.

The billion-dollar reconstruction of the Mass Pike Allston interchange is coming! MassDOT's plan is highly auto-oriented, with a new highway and major roads built first and bus and rail projects deferred to the future. We all know our neighborhood is already drowning in traffic. It will only get worse unless big transit improvements come soon. On Dec. 5th, join your neighbors for an introductory overview of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (DEIR) for the Mass Pike Allston Interchange. Come learn of what MassDOT has planned for the neighborhood and how these plans will impact your transit options and quality of life. There are limited opportunities remaining for residents to voice their concerns on this neighborhood altering project, don't miss out!!
