Five Things: Former Police Scribe at Library Tonight
Today is Tuesday, Feb. 7. Here are five things you need to know today:
1. It should be another beautiful (winter?) day in Boston. The sun should be shining, and temperatures are expected to reach the mid 40s.
2. John Sacco, the Poet Laureate of the South End News’ Police Blotter, will give a talk at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 7, at the South End Branch Library. Retired since 2000, Sacco will reminisce about his days as law-and-order scribe of Boston Police’s D4 district. Sacco’s talk is part of the Friend of South End Library’s “The South End Writes” series. Complete details.
3. The Pilot Block Neighborhood Association will hold its monthly meeting from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 8, at the South End Branch Library. The agenda will tackle the recent upswing in neighborhood crime (“Is it time to revive a Neighborhood Watch?”), nominations for the association’s new leadership, street cleaning changes and more.
4. The deadline to register to vote, make a change of address or declare a political designation in time for the March 6 Presidential Primary is Wednesday, Feb. 15 (Request a Voter Registration Form). All registrations must be postmarked by that date. Offices in City Hall, room 241, will be open until 8 p.m. on that date. See the city’s website for complete details.
5. It’s hard to believe looking around, but yesterday (Monday, Feb. 6) marked the 34th anniversary of the Blizzard of ’78. Where were you on that memorable day?
