New, 1 comment

THE ATLANTIC—Graves Island (and its lighthouse) 9 miles off the coast of Boston has traded for $933,888—in cash. Recall that the government-run auctioning of the 10 rocky acres commenced in June and quickly turned frenetic. It is the most ever paid for a U.S. lighthouse. [Names Blog]
BOSTON—Better: "More than 2,000 tickets were issued last weekend by the Inspectional Services Department as an army of students returned to Boston and moved into their apartments for the school year. ... Less than half as many violations were found as last year, continuing a downward trend." []
