Week in Review: Oct. 9 to 15
A look back at the week that was in Lexington.
Was a short, but eventful week in Lexington.
On Monday—Columbus Day—Patch hopped on the Liberty Ride, which is celebrating the end of its 10th season by offering discounted rates for Lexington residents the rest of this month.
Tuesday night was certainly a busy one, with a Sustainable Lexington forum, a School Committee meeting and the Board of Selectmen talking with the Busa Land Use Proposal Committee. Around the same time, Lexington Police and a tactical team from the North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council subdued a suicidal man barricaded in a bedroom.
Lexington Firefighters wore pink proudly on Wednesday, their bubble gum-colored T-shirts showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And that night, they extinguished a fire after a floodlight ignited a bird’s nest on North Street.
Also on Wednesday, members of the local business community expressed support for a proposal to turn the Dana Home into an inn at a Chamber of Commerce's business breakfast. Over in California, a Lexington native was tragically gunned down in a mass killing at a Seal Beach beauty salon.
The rain came on Thursday, as did real estate bigwig William Raveis, who swung through Lexington Center to see his company’s recently expanded offices.That morning, Denise Dubé reported on plans for Cary Memorial Hall.
