…the gas station near Meserole Ave & McGuinness Blvd was robbed (last night).
do you know anything about the shooting last night at the gas station on McGuinness Blvd btw Meserole/ Cayler and the Key Food?
I have reached out the the head of the 94th, Deputy Inspector Hurson, and he has verified that unfortunately this has came to pass. Per Mr. Hurson an employee of this establishment was shot twice (but thankfully is expected to live) and they caught the perp on video. Some might recall there was another armed robbery at the Dunkin Donuts (also on McGuinness Boulevard) earlier this month. Yikes!
Update, 9:34 p.m.: I have just received word an arrest has been made for the Dunkin’ Donuts robbery!

Indeed, it is.

I am a Greenpointer moving away for a year to Nicaragua to work with ceramics artisans, and I am looking for a temporary foster for my two cats.
The other owner is currently deployed in Afghanistan and is due back stateside in May, and will pick them up as soon as he comes back, we don’t want to place the cats back in BARC where they were adopted, we love them so much but have been having a really hard time finding a temporary home for them.
I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind spreading the word?
Their names are Oliver and Stella and they are really awesome cats really relaxed and easy going.
As Daina states, her partner will be returning from Afghanistan in mid May. What Oliver and Stella need in the interim is a place to hang their respective hats from the end of January (day after tomorrow) until then. If any of you, dear readers, wish to give these two charming furkids temporary accommodations you can contact Daina via email at: daina.platais (at) gmail.com
