Remember our story about Dennis Smith, the painter of Walford Way? Well, now you’ll have a chance to see his art. Following the publication of our story, an anonymous donor stepped forward to sponsor Smith to get a spot at the upcoming Art in the Park event at City Square Park. The cancer-stricken Smith told Charlestown Patch recently that art has become his lifeline, and he hungered for an outlet to show his work. Now, he has one. “Come on out, and see what kept me motivated,” Smith wrote in a post for the event on our events page. Event details: NAME: Art in the Park DATE: Saturday, Sept. 8 (Rain date, Sunday, Sept. 9) TIME: 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. This will be the event’s 15th year, according to the Artist Group of Charlestown web site. …

The Congressman from Somerville has given himself a deadline of 'the end of the summer' to decide whether he'll make another run for Senate.
Today is Tuesday, Aug. 30. Here are five things you need to know today. 1. The Congressman from Somerville is still debating whether he'll run for Senate. Capuano, according to reports, has given himself a deadline of "the end of the summer" to decide whether he'll vie (again) for a chance to represent Democrats in a race for the late Ted Kennedy's seat. Of course, these days, that seat belongs to Scott Brown.
