A Long Island, N.Y., man has been arrested in connection with alleged sexual abuse at the Boys & Girls Club decades ago.
Paul A. Collins, 62, of Centereach, N.Y., faces numerous charges dating to the 1970s and early '80s, and there are five known victims, Chief Fred Ryan reported Saturday, May 8.
The complaint alleges rape of a child with force, indecent assault and battery on a child under 14, as well as lewdness, open and gross conduct.
Ryan said that following the May 18 arraignment on a fugitive-from-justice charge, Collins has waived extradition, "and if all goes as planned, he will be transported back to Arlington PD by Arlington detectives later this evening."

Details about the program to celebrate Arlington Town Hall's first century continue to come in, as the historical society plans to present a related event.

As cars lined up at the DPW so residents could hand off recycling on Saturday, May 11, not far away, on an athletics field behind Stop & Shop, another kind of environmental issue is due for resolution -- the residue of topsoil dug up last winter when the town dumped snow at the site.
The area in question is not just any field of play; it is an area, part of a much larger one including Arlington High School's football field, contaminated with cancer-causing chromium.
Because of a settlement between the town and industrial interests that manufactured at the site of the DPW Yard going back to 1913, the larger area has been capped to protect the public.

Arlington didn’t quite come out on top in its February library-card sign-up challenge with Belmont, Lexington and Somerville. As a result, Ryan Livergood, Arlington’s director of libraries, and Selectmen Joseph Curro plan on staying true to their promises of appearing dressed as Clifford the Big Red Dog.
The winner of the challenge was Somerville, and Livergood was to appear at the Somerville Public Library dressed as Clifford on March 22, at 10:30 a.m, during that library’s toddler story time, but his appearance was postponed.
At 10 a.m. Monday, May 20, storytime at Robbins Library, Curro will show up in Clifford attire.
Livergood will do his best Clifford at 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 21, at the Somerville Public Library.

The festival, a benefit for Massbike, presents 12 short films that explore countries across the globe -- or the wilds of the North Shore. One film, "The Cycle Bug," was submitted to the festival by a wandering cyclist still exploring India.
