during this past wee, Lucas and I attended a local community event in support of the South Coast Rail project. I have never been to a meeting like this and I tough it was going to be comedically bad, perhaps due to the amount of Parks & Recreation that I watch. I was so glad I was wrong. The sense of community in the room and support of the local project, the police, and the state representative, was off the charts. I learned so much about the projects underway and how crime had dropped in the area due to increased patrols.
The Rail project itself has high hopes for bringing in much needed revenue to the South Coast areas like Fall River and New Bedford. We have so much to offer on this side of the state that no one up north seems to be aware of. The area itself will grow exponentially once the project is complete.

Next week I will be updating with more info on it after I have thoroughly researched it.
