W. talks legacy, visits Romney HQ – Bike share program expands – Bottle bill tries to get over the goal line

43: Former President George Bush, in town to speak at a travel convention, stopped by Mitt Romney’s North End headquarters yesterday to give the place a shot of that ol’ Dubya luck.

BIKES: As Hubway enters its second year, the bike-sharing system gets ready for a big expansion and encounters some criticism over Boston’s seemingly bike-first policies.

BOTTLES: An expanded bottle bill could become a reality this session as advocates try to push it over the legislative finish line.

CRASH: At least one person is reportedly dead after a Middlesex Sheriff’s department vehicle crashed in Billerica.
