508 #45: Art heist

posted by Mike on July 25th, 2008

508 is a show about Worcester. This week’s panel includes Brendan Melican, Bruce Russell, and Kevin Ksen.

The Worcester police want $4K before sending records about Officer Mark Rojas to the Telegram & Gazette. Also this week: “At least six city police officers are under investigation for fraudulently claiming overtime pay for time spent testifying in court cases.”

There was an art heist in Elm Park.

Some good things in Worcester: the American Antiquarian Society, the Latin Festival, the Worcester World Cup, the Dive Bar’s new patio, and Jeff Barnard’s recovery.

Worcester Magazine had a nice article on street vendors this week. We finish the show with some audio interviews with vendors.

Choice snippet of the proposed vendor regulations:

For purposes of this provision a threat shall include the assemblage of any number of people in the traveled portion of any public or private way within three hundred feet of the vendor, peddler or merchant.
