Pondering the past year in Port


Who would have predicted ... ?

That City Councilor Kathleen O’Connor Ives would run for the state Senate and win convincingly.

That municipal voters would approve two schools and a senior community center.

That Davis Auto Parts would be sold to a restaurant owner who wants to put in a eatery-bar with 431 seats.

That Fowle’s newsstand would be closed.

That a full-concept plan for the Newburyport Redevelopment Authority land on the riverfront would be considered.

That the HMS Bounty, which thrilled North Shore residents last summer, would sink with its captain on board?

That Newburyport would provide a 67 percent affirmative vote on medical marijuana? Well, actually, one probably could have predicted that.


The following meeting is scheduled this week and is open to the public?


Historical Commission, 9 a.m., 39-41 Ashland St.
