Officials also hear from police chief about Dedham's National Night Out events, and recognize town administrator's son.
The Board of Selectmen Thursday night granted Paradise Café an entertainment license. Café owner Ali Koushan told selectmen many of his customers have asked if they could have soft music, like jazz, playing in the background.

Selectmen also received a letter of support from neighbors of the establishment. “It’s a proven model to have this type of music in bistros and cafes,” Selectman Paul Reynolds said. He also added that something like this is great for Dedham Square. Dedham Chief of Police Michael D’Entremont attended the selectmen’s meeting to tell everyone about National Night Out, an event that began in Texas in the mid-1980s and …

Panelists encouraged parents to become more involved.
As part of the Dedham Police Department sponsored National Night Out, the Dedham Historical Society hosted panel discussion on prescription drug awareness.

"It is legal and inexpensive," said Jasset, who also serves on the Board of Health. Jasset added that some kind of drug high can be achieved after drinking three or four …

Local civic groups and the Dedham Police Department came together Sunday to showcase not just their softball skills - of which there were many - but also how neighbors have improved East Dedham in the past few years. At the forefront of East Dedham and its "renaissance" is a civic group that are rekindling a neighborhood and putting this little corner of Dedham back on the map. State Rep.
