I remember Boomtown well and can still sing the theme song, but does anyone remember that Rex hostedRead More a Saturday afternoon bowling show from Bowlers World in Framingham.( RT 9 east at the current site of Legal Seafood) in the 60's. I was thrilled to appear on the show. It is difficult to imagine now, but bowling was huge in Massachusetts in the 50s and 60s. Rex's show was 10pin, but Candlepins were also hugely popular. Natick also had 2 ten pin lanes on route 9 as well as candlepin lanes. Framingham had three candlepin alleys downtown. They are all gone. The Fairway in Natick was the last to close about 2 years ago

It saddens me deeply that this young man is no longer with us. May G-d give his parents the strengthRead More to survive this preventable accident and for his passing to be a lesson to the BU campus and the our entire community of cyclists. Bicycle People, you certainly have "the right of way" but that does no good carved on your head stone! Cars, and in this instance a TRUCK have so much weight that an individual just looses every time in any confrontation! RIP, Amen.

Badly designed poll, Jon. What kinds of choices are those? Forcing us to choose between the SpaceRead More Shuttle (yes, badly executed program) and the Curiosity as a way to measure the program's overall progress on its mission is bizarre, to say the least. How about simply being able to answer "Yes" or "No"?! It's gonna be tough to recapture the awe and wonder of Armstrong's time, as space exploration was still fairly new and given such intense purpose and national pride due to the space race with the Soviets. Space is not largely viewed as that exciting any more (even though it certainly IS!), and Americans are focused on a poor economy and more complex and ambiguous geopolitical situation than was the case in the 60s.

Do you feel proud of the fact that Americans must hitch a ride on a Russian rocket to get to theRead More International Space Station? At one time America had a vision for space exploration, now, the vision is faded for the most part and replaced with a scientific bureauracy like everything else in Washington

I'm sure Commander Armstrong would agree, sir.

The family has also added memorial observance at their home today, Saturday between the hours of 4Read More and 7. And you have a serious typo in the last sentence. The word "donations" should be substituted for the first appearance of the word "flowers".
Karla Vallance June 16, 2012 at 11:52 am
Thanks, Laurie Lasky, for both the additional news about the memorial observance and the copy edit.

I wish the driver had been charged with a crime...negligent homicide. The driver of the automobileRead More who was traveling in the opposite direction of the woman on the bicycle came up with a rather poor excuse for hitting her.
Grahame Turner April 19, 2012 at 06:35 pm
Because that detail is not in at all mentioned this article, it to me it feels inappropriate toRead More bring it up here. However, as you mentioned it: the information we have says that the incident was "likely accidental." http://patch.com/A-syvk Unless we hear otherwise from officials, we have no reason to report contradictory information.

"During his Homily, Rev. Nolan referenced the circumstances around Garcia's death, saying,Read More "The place Franco made his way from [on Feb. 22] has hurt students, and will continue to do so."" I am wondering if someone can clarify - is the Rev. talking about the fact that the Reservoir is not lit at night or he is making a statement about the influences of alcohol and going out to bars?
Grahame Turner April 19, 2012 at 08:00 pm
We believe the reference was to Maryann's, the bar in Cleveland Circle. So, it sounds like theRead More latter, that he is making a statement about the influences of alcohol on students.
Grahame Turner April 9, 2012 at 05:44 pm
Thanks for the info, I will look into that. I also passed your comment along to the folks at BATV,Read More so there is a chance we will see it again.
Marc Wallace April 11, 2012 at 09:38 pm
There is no evidence, even on Wikipedia (any longer, at least) that Mike Wallace's name was everRead More "Wallechinsky." Records indicate his father arrived in US from "Russia" circa 1893 with the name Friedan Wallik. There is nothing to indicate otherwise.
Grahame Turner April 12, 2012 at 04:35 pm
Thanks for updating us on the change! I have edited the article to reflect it, and included theRead More editor's note (partly so that these comments still make sense).

Agreed, Michael & Nomi; but I have to admit I had no idea Ramsey lived in our midst.
Brooklyn Lowery (Editor) November 8, 2011 at 01:34 pm
It was fascinating to spend time reading about Ramsey (though I admittedly understand very little ofRead More his work). The photos, I think, were my favorite part. Just to think about what he saw and experienced during his life is incredible.
Michael & Nomi Burstein November 8, 2011 at 01:51 pm
There's quite a few people living in Brookline who are important and well-known in their fields butRead More who would be unrecognizable if you saw them on the street. As it is, my background is in Physics so I've been aware of Ramsay and his work for a long time. It's sad to see him gone. -- Michael

We are flying up from Florida to say our goodbyes. Tremendous man, he will be deeply missed inRead More our community as well...
Bill Davidson December 7, 2010 at 02:40 am
I knew Kevin from "The Fun Show" during the years I volunteered at BAT. He was a greatRead More guy, a wealth of knowledge on current events. "The Fun Show" won't be as fun without him.
