    Massachusetts now forced into border spat It’s finally been confirmed what was suspected all along — Massachusetts is feeling the pain of the chaotic border crisis. Forget the denials. Secret flights of illegal immigrants have made their way to Bedford and Boston. .... We’ve learned from immigration officials that four planes filled with detainees ... as the U.S. scrambles to cap the immigration crisis. .... This should alarm everybody in the Bay State, because we don’t know how many illegals are passing through or hanging around; what communicable diseases they may carry; if any are sex offenders, drug-runners, gang members...

    The train traveled overnight, carrying him from his roots to his calling. This was not a trip Babe Ruth planned, expected or even hoped to make. He was comfortable in his native Baltimore, still in awe of his surroundings after his exodus from an orphanage and reform school, still content pitching and pounding out home runs for a first-place Orioles team in the International League. But that team was sagging in attendance and bleeding money, and it had shipped three of its better assets -- Ruth, Ben Egan and Ernie Shore -- to the American League, to Boston, to recoup...
  • Somerville Teacher Accused Of Having Sexual Relationship With 13-Year-Old

    SOMERVILLE (CBS) – A Somerville teacher has been arrested and charged with raping a 13-year-old child. Alexandra Romanos, 41, of Stoneham, was arraigned Wednesday on two counts of aggravated rape of a child, and three counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14. According to the DA’s office, a parent tipped off the school department last month about the teacher’s alleged relationship with a 13-year-old, which had been ongoing since March and had occurred both on and off school grounds. Romanos taught 5th graders at the East Somerville Community School, and has worked there for seven years....

    Boston researchers have successfully regrown human corneal tissue—a feat that could potentially restore vision in the blind. The achievement also marks one of the first times that scientists have constructed tissue using adult-derived human stem cells. In a new study published in the journal Nature, researchers from Massachusetts Eye and Ear Institute, Boston Children’s Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the VA Boston Healthcare System detailed their groundbreaking research. According to the paper, the key to the study’s success revolves around a molecule known as ABCB5, which serves as a biomarker for previously elusive limbal stem cells. Residing in the...
  • FRANCISCANS PARTICIPATE IN PRIDE FESTIVAL--- ARCHDIOCESE EVADES RESPONSIBILITY

    The Franciscan Friars of Boston's Saint Anthony's Shrine---members of the same religious family as our Capuchin Cardinal Sean O'Malley---manned a so-called information booth at the city's homosexual Pride Festival on City Hall Plaza on Saturday, June 14th. The booth featured banners, buttons and t-shirts emblazoned with the words: "Who am I to judge?" There was nothing evident which suggested traditional Catholic teaching about the mortally sinful, soul endangering character of homosexual relations, which The Catechism of the Catholic Church, promulgated by Pope Saint John Paul II in 1984, described as "grave depravity." When contacted by concerned Catholics, Franciscans assured callers...

Local media put the number of patients anywhere between 30 and 80. Massachusetts General Hospital told CNN it received 13 patients between ages 16 and 19. All of the patients are being evaluated, said Kory Zhao, a hospital public affairs officer. Most patients had a problem with dehydration, drugs and alcohol, authorities told CNN affiliate WHDH.

    Most people only see the filtered version of "gayness" that the mainstream media presents, which portrays it as wholesome, joyous, and even healthy. But the public spectacle of a "Gay Pride Week" (June 6-14) in a major city like Boston reveals a great deal about the pathologies, addictions, perversions, and general dysfunction surrounding homosexual behavior that is generally kept hidden. Make no mistake: "Gay Pride" is vastly different than the South Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade, or the Puerto Rican Parade -- or anything else you'll see in the public streets. It's not really about "fun" or even politics. It's...

  • (MA)House approves $11 minimum wage bill

    06/18/2014 5:38:24 PM PDT · by matt04 · 18 replies
    Many Massachusetts workers could see a little more money in their paychecks as early as next year. Last week, the Massachusetts Senate agreed to raise the minimum wage to $11.00 per hour and on Wednesday, the House of Representatives agreed. The vote means that Massachusetts will be one step closer to having the highest statewide minimum wage in the country. Under the bill, the minimum wage would be increased over three years, with no tie to inflation. Although the Senate gave their approval last week, not all House members agree it’s a good idea. “This minimum wage was never intended...

    What is the lesson to be learned by the defeat of U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor? The average voter doesn’t want amnesty. It’s not just a Republican issue. Democrats can vote in the Virginia Republican primary. And until the liberal legislators pass the Safe Driving Act to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses, which will get them one step closer to voting, pro-amnesty politicians in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts should worry about being Cantorized. While union leadership supports amnesty, the blue-collar workers don’t want competition for jobs at a lower wage. Moreover, lunch-pail workers don’t want to put in a hard...

In a controversial move, Pelletier was placed in the custody of the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families more than a year ago, after two reputable Boston hospitals sparred in their diagnosis of the girl. snip In what Justina's attorneys are calling a "dramatic reversal," the Massachusetts DCF filed a motion agreeing that the teenager should be returned to her...

Legislation has been enacted or proposed at the federal and state level for a “College Athlete Bill of Rights.” But Boston City Councilor Josh Zakim has taken the unique step of going local. He filed a pair of ordinances Friday related to the educational and health rights for athletes who play college sports in Boston. Among the potential laws for Boston universities:

The couple, identified only as "John and Jane Doe," argued their children's rights were violated by the voluntary recitation of the pledge -- including "Under God" -- in the public schools in the Acton-Boxborough district. But the Supreme Judicial Court ruled unanimously they failed to make their case, saying they had not proved the children had been subjected to bullying, ostracism or any other punishment or mistreatment...

The Massachusetts Department of Children and Families took custody of Justina after her parents disputed the diagnosis doctors at Boston Children’s Hospital’s handed down. Boston Children’s Hospital said the then 15-year-old had a psychiatric disorder – not mitochondrial disease, which her parents had been treating her for at the direction of another doctor. Though a Boston juvenile court judge recently awarded permanent custody of Justina to the state DCF, it would appear, based on the letter by Massachusetts...

    Video Media is now identifying Boston bombing prankster as Jayvon Edson, apparently a 2007 Wakefield High grad. He's on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. He apparently left two backpacks near the Boston Marathon finish line, on the anniversary of the bombings, wearing all black and barefoot and shouting "Boston Strong". Police detonated at least one of the backpacks.

    Book excerpt from Stronger: The bomb went off at 2:49 on Monday afternoon. Within seconds, the man in the cowboy hat was leaping the barricade guarding the finish line and racing toward the carnage. The second bomb went off when he was half-way across the street, but he kept coming. They all kept coming to help us: police officers, race volunteers, bystanders. The first pictures came out almost immediately thereafter. They were long-shots of the scene: the concussion of the bomb shaking a camera filming the race. The force of the blast knocking down a runner about to cross the...

    Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet-Davis allegedly walked out of the set of Meet the Press with David Gregory. A survivor of the Boston Marathon bombing stormed off the set of NBC’s Meet the Press in tears on Friday after being asked to comment on Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev — after she was allegedly promised their names would not be mentioned. Adrianne Haslet-Davis, a dancer who lost part of one leg during the attack, tweeted after the taping: I feel so disrespected @meetthepress I asked politely yesterday and you said yes. Now you choose to use the name instead.

    Last night in East Boston, Massachusetts, a seven-alarm fire broke out, which escalated into an eight-alarm fire. Given the lives of Boston Fire Lieutenant Edward Walsh and Boston Firefighter Michael Kennedy were so recently claimed by a nine-alarm fire in Back Bay, concern was high and news crews were quickly on the scene. They did not expect to find the the following scene… As news crews arrived, local WBZ CBS reporter Katie Brace came upon this BMW 3 Series Coupe, which was parked in front of a fire hydrant. Obviously this was dumb, and the Boston Fire Department quickly dispatched...

    A Boston BMW owner made the mistake of parking illegally in front of a fire hydrant, so fire fighters battling an 8-alarm blaze simply smashed a hose through the windows Wednesday night. It appears to be an act of retaliation at first, but firefighters say the fire hose must be as straight as possible to maintain water pressure. And with this multi-home inferno, they needed everything in perfect working order.
