1) Quinlan Junta Dies. Reading Patch broke the news Sunday that Quinlan Junta had died. The Reading Memorial High School alumnus and stand-out hockey player had had a tumultuous last few months of life; at the time of his death, he was awaiting trial for assault and robbery charges. Reading Patch readers also took the time this week to remember Junta at better moments.
2) John Hollingsworth Field dedicated. Okay, this actually happened last week, but Reading Patch this week brought you photos and videos from the event that brought hundreds of RMHS graduates back to the school to see their favorite coach.
3) Addison Wesley building imploded. Depending on when you’re reading this, the tower at the former Addison Wesley site is either awaiting implosion, or has been reduced to a pile of rubble several stories shorter than it once had been.
4) You believe drug use in Reading to be at least as common as in other places. We ran a poll on Reading Patch trying to assess how common residents believed drugs to be in town. A strong majority of those who cast their vote believed that the town had a problem on par with other communities. More than a third of you said the problem is worse in Reading than elsewhere, and just two of you thought that it was an over-reported phenomenon.
