We know it can be easy to fall behind on the news. If you fell behind this week, here are five stories we think you should take a look at.
More cameras coming to Charlestown. A&E announced this week that the network will work with Boston-bred star Mark Wahlberg to create a reality series (that Wahlberg is calling more of a “docu-drama”) about the Charlestown-based Teamsters Local 25. We also had some cameras in town recently for more filming for R.I.P.D.
Work on the Charlestown Carnival continues. Lead organizer Sean Boyle reported this week that he’s still trying to revive the long-dormant tradition, but he’s having a hard time finding a location in town that could host the carnival.
Townies sit out Super Tuesday. Former Gov. Mitt Romney took Massachusetts in this week’s Republican primary—solidly winning over voters in both Boston and Charlestown. But not many residents in town participated. Fewer than 1,000 visited the polls this week.
Senate candidate visits town. For about 45 minutes Wednesday morning, Zume’s Coffee House changed from a quiet cafe full of people typing on their laptops into a scheduled stop on Elizabeth Warren’s campaign trail. About 20 people, including local reporters and several of her staff members, attended the event.
Townies storm the tourney. The Townies beat Central Catholic this week, and are now on their way to the Division 1 North Finals.
