Week in Review, June 19 to June 25
An anti-texting program came to Lexington, the school year ended, oh yeah, and Whitey Bulger was arrested.
This week began with Middlesex District Attorney's office and other dignitaries dropping by Lexington High School on Monday, for the "It Can Wait" program, which encourages teens not to text while driving.
That evening, the Board of Selectmen heard about the Leary Report, approved a Lexpress-LHS pilot program and approved sale of bond anticipation notes, among other things.
On Tuesday, Patch introduced a new feature that profiles vendors at the Lexington Farmers' Market and columnist Audra Myerberg kicked-started a conversation about cafeteria food and chickens. Also, officials confirmed an investigation into a possible attempted arson on Wood Street.
On Wednesday, a business feature on Help Around Town, introduced resident Reem Yared's new venture to the community. Also on Wednesday, it was the last day of school.
And then on Thursday, when news broke that infamous Boston gangster James "Whitey" Bulger was arrested in California, we caught the local reaction.
Also on Thursday, we caught up with School Committee Chairwoman Mary Ann Stewart about her board's plans to strategize about its response to Open Meeting Law complaints and litigation brought by a pair of resdents.
And finally, on Friday, the police log revealed several bicycles had been stolen and cars broken into over the week.
