The BRA, um, BPDA, just won't take no for an answer: After losing several legal battles over its attempts to put a restaurant at the end of Long Wharf, the authority is trying yet again to convince judges to let it get what it wants. NorthEndWaterfront.com reports the BPDA has filed an appeal of a judge's decision last month that once again blocked its plan to turn the Blue Line emergency-exit kiosk into a full-service restaurant. In March, Suffolk Superior Court Judge Elizabeth Fahey became the latest judge to rule in favor of 10 North End residents who have been fighting the plan, claiming that the National Park Service intended for that part of the wharf to remain parkland forever when it gave $825,000 to the BRA to fix up the wharf in 1980. Fahey cited a ruling by the federal Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston last September that said a map the BRA had somehow lost - as used to be its practice with inconvenient documents - but which two retired National Park Services workers then found, showed that the kiosk was within the borders of the area for which the park service had paid for repairs. In her ruling, Fahey wrote: The Boston Redevelopment Authority can no longer claim either that the 1980 Project Area Map is not the map of record for Long Wharf or that Long Wharf Pavilion falls outside the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act, (LWCF Act) 54 U.S.C. Paragraph 200301-200310, Section 6(f) Conservation Area for perpetuity or that it can proceed with the proposed Project within Long Wharf Pavilion in the future without the National Park Service's (NPS) approval. Fahey said the BRA could build something at the end of Long Wharf, but only if it offered the National Park Service a comparable parcel - and then only if the NPS agreed to take it. The BPDA filed its appeal last week.

Fried chicken on the way. Photo by Travel New England. Mikhaela Houston alerts us that a Chick-fil-A is under construction on Providence Highway, near the Ocean State Job Lot - and the West Roxbury line, which would mark the chain's closest approach to Boston since it was banned (first by Northeastern and then by the city) for being owned by homophobes. It's just up the road a bit from where the Hooters is going in where Bugaboo Creek used to be, by one of the entrances to Legacy Place. The only way it could get closer to Boston would be to take over some space in the self-storage place that is right on the Dedham/Boston line.

Remember when our worst complaint about Bernie and Phyl's ads was their jingle? Several months after the furniture chain plastered subway trains with mildly risque ads about how many people their couches could handle, they've introduced new ads that cut right to the chase: If you copulate or die in bed, you better hope you do so in one of theirs. The ads are having the reverse effect on some people, such as John Overholt, who, after seeing the death one, decided: I would now rather die than shop at Bernie & Phyl's. Earlier: And then there was the time Legal Seafood had T ads pulled because they said Green Line drivers had faces like halibuts.

From across the Boston area's universities, biotech companies and hospitals, thousands of scientists and their allies crowded a soggy Boston Common today to battle an administration that seems intent on denying their research, cutting their funding and banning their colleagues and students from entering the country.

As Americans, as New Englanders, as Boston strong - we care about our natural world! she exclaimed. The crowd booed just as lustily when she mentioned the name Trump. My poor EPA, she said. Its 15,000 people - I love you! Scientists from every discipline, engineers, doctors from Mass. General and Boston Medical Center, veterinary students from Tufts, all came to the Common - and protested in scientific notation: Even zombies support science: Some protested Trump specifically: Science is kind of a big deal in Boston: And the scientists had allies:...

Transit Police have issued a BOLO for a guy they say started screaming at a group of young kids and their chaperone on a Green Line trolley to Lechmere yesterday afternoon - and then physically attacked their chaperone at the station. The victim was chaperoning/supervising 1st and 2nd grade children as they traveled on the MBTA returning from a field trip. The suspect male, who boarded at North Station, was in possession of a dog. The victim politely requested he keep the dog away from the children. The suspect male responded by shouting at the victim and using foul obscene language. This was done in the presence of the children. The suspect also threatened to kill the victim and bragged of killing people for less. Upon arrival at Lechmere station the suspect male physically assaulted the victim and left the area towards the direction of Cambridgeside Galleria. If he looks familiar, contact detectives at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymoust tip to 873873.

The Chicken & Rice Guys say Boston public-health inspections of their facilities have shown no E. coli and that their Medford restaurant will re-open tomorrow. The Downtown Crossing store could re-open tomorrow as well, after an ISD inspection in the morning; in fact, ISD Commissioner William Christopher vows to buy the first meal at 11 a.m., assuming the inspection goes OK. The chain's outlets - which also include restaurants on Lincoln Street downtown, Harvard Avenue in Allston and several food trucks - have been closed since April 11, when customers started coming down with E. coli infections. The chain reports: Since last Tuesday, testing of CNR’s employees, our food, and our facilities have all shown no traces of E. coli. As such, the Boston Public Health Commission has given us the “all clear” to resume operations pending re-inspection Saturday. We couldn’t be more proud of our amazing team, who received nothing but compliments for their professionalism, cooperation, and honesty from the BPHC during this difficult time. CNR adds: In the last 5 years, as the community has witnessed, we have experienced incredible growth. We did it with a great product, great service, and an amazing team. But, we can and will do better, especially in the realm of food safety. Our team spent the last 10 days attending safety meetings and candidly discussing what we do well as a company and what we need to further tighten up our food safety procedures. To further ensure the safety of the community, we have hired an external food safety consultant with over forty years of experience as an extra layer on top of our already experienced and professional operations team, properly disposed every ounce of prepared food in each location, professionally cleaned all locations, and have implemented even more rigorous safety policies and training. We have also created an external auditing process where independent safety experts will regularly conduct surprise inspections of all CNR locations above and beyond those required by the BPHC.

The Supreme Judicial Court ruled today a woman who swallowed what appeared to be a bag of heroin in full view of a police officer shouldn't have been charged with misleading a police officer because he knew exactly where the bag was. Police charged Josefa Tejeda with heroin possession and with misleading police on Oct. 8, 2014, alleging that on watching a man get arrested for possession of a small plastic bag of a light brown powdery substance at Roxbury and Washington streets in Dudley Square, she noticed he had dropped it, then rushed over, picked up the bag and swallowed it. A Roxbury District Court judge dismissed the misleading-police charge; the Suffolk County District Attorney's office then appealed. At issue for the state's highest court is the meaning of mislead under state law. The justices said that while that law does not specifically define mislead, they would use both federal evidence-tampering rules and a dictionary definition, and that those led them to the conclusion Tejeda did not mislead police The court set out two requirements for trying somebody on the charge: One would be an attempt to make a false statement, and the other would be that that statement then sent police off on what the ruling called a wild goose chase. The court allowed that swallowing the bag could be seen as an effort to interfere with police, a sort of non-verbal false statement. But, the court continued, because the woman swallowed the bag as police watched, she failed to send them off on a wild goose chase: [A]lthough the defendant's swallowing of the plastic bag in full view of a police officer may have been an attempt to keep potential evidence away from the officer, it was not an attempt to create a false impression within that officer. This is so because she did not attempt to, nor did she, deceive the officer as to where the bag went. Second, the defendant's conduct did not lead officers astray or send them on a wild goose chase. Paquette, 475 Mass. at 800. The officers knew exactly where to find the plastic bag if they were so inclined.

Some writer in the burg the New York Times once declared the sixth borough whines about what a hellhole his city is, and drags us into it: Since London is in a class by itself, let’s look at Boston - another older, East Coast city - to see why it’s a thriving, vibrant metropolis, while Philly remains stagnant. And for the record, you know things are bad when you’re getting whipped by a city that happens to be in the most liberal state in the country. But really, Philadelphia truly sucks when compared to Beantown (dude, stop): Its public transportation is top notch, and its infrastructure is being improved at an aggressive pace. And the entire downtown area is remarkably clean.
