It's no secret that Arlington's police department does what it can to promote a trusting relationship with community members it's paid to protect. This week, Arlington's version of "National Night Out" took place at the Thompson School. National Night Out is a fun and relaxing event for the whole family all in an effort to foster better relations between law enforcement officers and Arlington residents.

A very popular and creative eatery is once again open for business. Thrive Juice Cafe at 169 Mass Ave. reopened it's doors recently after flames swept through the building last summer. The comeback wasn't easy but, as we discovered this week, this business has proven it can easily live up to it's name!

A business that was hit by fire last summer makes a comeback! Thrive Juice Cafe is once again serving up a healthy alternative to those fast-paced slick drive-through places. How do delicious fresh scrumptious foods and drinks sound? We thought so. What is that contraption spotted at the Reservoir? It is actually cleaning up the Res as we speak. It is eating away at the invasive plants that have been choking the waterway for weeks. We talk to the contractor to get a progress report. And...

Arlington is blessed to have so many resources and sites that are absolutely pleasing to the eye! Unfortunately, this is not one of them. From the Lexington border to Route 2, our streets our filled with double utility poles. These unsightly structures were the topic of discussion at a recent Select Board meeting. ACMi News director Jeff Barnd reports the board heard some OK news. But when it comes to getting things done in a timely fashion there may be a few wires crossed. Website:...

Double poles in Arlington. They seem to be everywhere. They are a necessity throughout town, no doubt. But, how long do "poll positions" like this have to hang around? We have an update. We just endured a prolonged drought that hopefully is history for the remainder of the Summer. That drought came with very little rain. As a result, the greenery surrounding us may need a little help. The bloodiest battle on day one of the Revolutionary War took place not in Lexington or Concord, but...

We've had so many ACMi interns over the years who "cut their teeth" here and moved on to bigger and better things. One former news intern, who now works as a TV reporter in Savannah, Georgia, misses us so much, she came back to visit recently. That gave us the opportunity to have a current news intern interview the now-seasoned former intern. Here's Savannah Anderson with her profile of Isabel Litterst.

Did you know that on day one of the Revolutionary War the battle that saw the most casualties was right here in town? It's the largest battle in terms of bloodshed and it was arguably the most brutal firefight on April 19, 1775. Now, all that remains of that ferocious campaign are four colossal rocks atop a fork in the road in Arlington Heights: "The Foot of the Rocks." In this latest edition of Arlington Making History, we talk to a pair of local historians who explain why the Battle...

One month ago, ACMi News aired a story about discarded fishing gear. Monofilament lines, float, and hooks left at Arlington's lush waterways and parks for someone else to pick-up. Or even worse. Fishing gear hanging from trees, bushes and left on the waters edge can take up to six centuries to decompose. But long before that, this trash left behind can play havoc with our wildlife in Arlington. ACMi News director Jeff Barnd found some anglers willing to talk to us about this ongoing problem....

You may recall members of a family of owls died suddenly at Menotomy Rocks Park earlier this year. And even though the owls were never sent for testing, residents are concerned they died ingesting rodent poisoning. As a result there's currently a push on the local and state levels to control rodenticides in order to save Arlington's wildlife and protect the town's environment.

Several measures are currently underway to push rodenticides to the back of the tool box. All in an effort to save creatures at the top of the food chain.

When the Beatles arrived in America and performed on the Ed Sullivan show in February of 1964, Paul McCartney was a sprite 22 year old who just graduated from the Cavern Club in Liverpool and the seedy beer-drenched nightclubs of Hamburg.

It's a Supreme Court decision that stunned a nation and will undoubtedly affect the upcoming primaries and the '24 general election. The high court ruled 6 to 3 to overturn Roe v. Wade last week, the landmark ruling that established the constitutional right to abortion. Here in Arlington, the reaction was quick and it was visceral.

The Arlington Advocate newspaper has been around for more than 150 years. But if you subscribe to it, you may have noticed a curious change to its name-plate. The paper's owner, Gannett of McLean, Virginia, changed the name to: "The Advocate and Star." It's the result of a merger of the printed word between the towns of Arlington and now Winchester. Bob Sprague, the editor of YourArlington.com, talked to ACMi News about Gannett's take on "hyper-local" news coverage, and how...

For many people, modern-day Memorial Day has morphed into nothing more than a three day weekend, a mega car sale, or backyard barbecue.
