One worker is dead and another critically hurt after they fell while working on a third-floor porch. The accident took place about 10:40 a.m. Tuesday at 89 Forest Hills St., according to Universal Hub. The worker who died fell on his head, the Boston Globe reports. The construction company involved applied for a "short form" permit instead of the more rigorous one required for structural work, the Globe and Universal Hub reported.
A look at the precinct-by-precinct results shows Jamaica Plain went heavier for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley than the rest of the city did. While Boston as a whole went 66 percent to 30 percent for Coakley over Governor-elect Charlie Baker, JP voters chose Coakley by an 80-15 margin. Independent Evan Falchuk made a slightly stronger showing in JP than in Boston: 3.5 percent in the neighborhood and 2.8 percent city-wide. But while JP was overwhelmingly for Coakley, there were differences among precincts. Residents of Moss Hill, with its suburban feel, also voted more like suburbanites.
