Firework shows on the north side.

Thinking about going to Winnemac park for tomorrow's fireworks display. Any other nearby contenders on the north side think their neighborhood has a better display? I'm coming from Ashland and Lawrence.

  • Watch the fireworks that the Saddle & Cycle put on. They are located at Marine Dr/Foster. You can get a great show from Foster Beach or from the park between Marine Dr/LSD north of the field house. It's starts at 9pm.

Lots of dead squirrels in 'hood, lately?

Has anyone noticed a lot of dead squirrels near Campbell and Wilson lately? Like, I'd say 6-7 in the last month and they're not just on the road (which would be more expected), but on the grass near trees, in the area around Waters school. I'm wondering if there's a pesticide that's poisoning them because the sheer volume of dead critters lately has just been weird.

  • Doubt it.....squirrels are fast when they need to be and can usually outrun a cat because they zig and zag.. They zip up trees, jump from one branch to another, crawl into known cracks in the tree trunks and have their burrows, too. Probably the worst evil little bastards are human, yes?

  • I agree with Statute. People don't realize how ecologically necessary squirrels are to our environment either. Plus they are so adorable.
