This week, we tapped into community news and alternative press to uncover the stories you may have missed. Among the news we discussed: advocates of repealing the gas tax accuse the MassDOT of playing politics to beat their ballot initiative. Is East Boston the next up-and-coming hip neighborhood? Plus, adjust your Cinco de Mayo festivities accordingly - the price of the lime has increased 244% in the past year.

Ten years ago, ​Archbishop Sean O'Malley ordered the closing of 85 churches. St. Frances Xavier Cabrini of Scituate was one of them, but the parishioners vowed never to close their doors -- and ever since, they have kept vigil 24 hours per day, seven days per week. Parishioners Jon and Maryellen Rogers join us to discuss their work and their appeal to the Vatican to keep the church open for good.
