Charles Street’s cash transfers subject of bankruptcy hearing

Aside from the ongoing bankruptcy proceedings and his abrupt resignation as Boston School Committee chairman, Rev. Gregory Groover, pastor of the Charles Street AME church, has recently added another problem to his list of ever-growing financial mismanagement practices — “special activities.” Two years ago, the Lilly Foundation awarded Charles a four-year grant of $875,000 to train young pastors. Its pastor in residency program was expected to be the sole beneficiary of the Lilly grant.

A grassroots strategy to win state elections

Elizabeth Warren was an unlikely candidate. The Harvard law professor shunned the glitz and glamour of modern-day politics and still handily beat Scott Brown, the sitting U.S. Senator that was the GOP’s idea of glitz and glamour. She won the seat the old-fashioned way — hard work. She knocked on doors across the state and shook hands and took photographs and debated issues that Brown was either too busy or too comfortable to engage this time around.
