A vigil in remembrance of the insurrection that occurred one year ago at the nations capitol was held at Whittemore Park Thursday night, January 6th. This event was unanimously approved by the select board at its December 20th meeting. You'll recall, the U.S. Capitol attack took place on January 6, 2021 in an attempt to overturn the results of a legitimate U.S. presidential election. ACMi's news director Jeff Barnd was there to cover the vigil which marks a dark day in American politics....

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.

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...

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...

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...

If you've driven or walked past Anderson's Florist at 830 Massachusetts Ave. recently, you probably noticed the flowers... on the outside. One area artist and several of her Arlington students just completed a masterpiece on the side of the building. They got a little help from the folks at Arts Arlington and Sustainable Arlington to make sure this beautiful addition to the building also carries a critical message for us all.

ACMi News got to talk to one person who attended Dr. Martin Luther King's civil rights event on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial August of 1963. In the midst of all the racial turbulence of the 60's, Darryl Hill was the first African-American football player in the Atlantic Coast Conference. He was a starting half-back and receiver at games throughout the segregated south. He was reluctant to play in the ACC at first but Darryl Hill realized he had a higher calling and eventually became known...

In recent weeks, ACMi News has been talking to residents in Kyiv, Ukraine to get the latest updates on the brutal invasion of that country. We first established contact with Natasha and John Sennett, who moved from the United States to Kyiv in the fall of 2019, just before the COVID outbreak and of course Vladimir Putin's invasion.

It was all fun and games this winter until January 29th happened. Any warm fuzzy feelings that we were going to get away with a major snow-storm this year were dashed when nature wreaked havoc and dumped nearly 21 inches of snow on Arlington. And since this winter season is far from over, here's ACMi News Director Jeff Barnd with some information you need to know just in case bombogenesis, the sequel, comes to a neighborhood near you.

Members of Arlington's Rotary Club will be hosting its 2nd annual Polar Dunk where area residents can actually plunge into the frozen waters of a dunk tank, if you so desire. Even if you don't wish to take a frozen dip, you can help get a polio vaccine to children worldwide who still need it.

Many of us are so focused in our daily routines, we hardly have enough time to ponder things we see everyday. Take the Massachusetts state seal and flag for instance. Both are at the center of a controversy that has already reached our state house. In the midst of all this, where does Arlington's favorite son, Cyrus Dallin, fit in with his works of art depicting Native Americans?

Arlington's fire and police departments were very busy Sunday, January 23rd on Spy Pond. According to fire crews, three skaters fell through thin ice in thee separate incidents and had to be rescued from the frigid waters. Arlington police were called late Sunday morning after a 50-year-old Cambridge man fell roughly 100 yards off-shore in the area of Hamilton Road. And, according to Fire Chief Kevin Kelley, things went down-hill from there. Kelley says if you do wish to skate on the pond,...

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....

We have been contacting several former interns who've gone to bigger and better things in the TV News biz. Stephanie Wittenbach, a graduate of Emerson College, was an ACMi News intern in the Fall of 2018. She now works for the ABC affiliate in Bangor, Maine and we're elated to hear she owes much of her success to what she absorbed here at ACMi.

The last hockey match between Arlington's cops and firefighters was three years ago. Pre-pandemic. But this year, this friendly tradition is once again on as these two teams take to the ice at the Ed Burns arena. We have a preview of Guns and Hoses 2022. Arlington residents gather at the town hall auditorium to discuss their concerns with Arlington's police chief and other officers. How better to do that than over a freshly brewed hot cup of joe?
