    LUCASVILLE, Ohio — The Latest on the scheduled execution of a contemned Ohio killer (all times local): 8:55 a.m. The Ohio Supreme Court says it won't hear an appeal from a condemned killer who argues he shouldn't be put to death because of his age at the time of the crime. The court declined to halt a scheduled 10 a.m. Wednesday execution in a decision released about two hours before. Lawyers for death row inmate Gary Otte (OH'-tee) wanted the court to apply the ruling of a Kentucky court last month that found the death penalty unconstitutional for people who...

    SALEM, Mass. - Salem State University’s Twitter account was hacked late Friday night.

The hack comes just hours before the school’s undergraduate commencement.| Boston 25 News reached out to school officials for comment. Salem State’s Facebook page says none of the tweets represent the university’s views. The school also apologized on Twitter. The university says it is looking into the hack...

    A giant banner in Haverhill, Massachusetts, comparing Senator Elizabeth Warren to Pocahontas is stirring up plenty of controversy. Neighbors are speaking out, saying they want it gone, but the owner says it’s here to stay. (with video) We spoke with Ricky Early, the man behind this giant banner picturing Sen.

    It has become very clear in recent weeks that the Libertarian Party Leadership just can’t keep their feet out of their mouths…and like it that way. This should come as no surprise coming from the same party who quotes the Satanic Temple Tenents during A Christian Holy week, sells their principles in a pay to play scheme, or announces that abortion is a non-issue to a party which is clearly divided in the issue. In the latest incident, Libertarian Party Vice Chairman Arvin Vohra had the following to say regarding troops and veterans. "A common excuse to join the military,...

    New England One ^ | 4/14/17 | Derrick Santos
    As New England One was first to report last December, WFXT FOX 25 [Boston] is dropping the "FOX" identity from its newscasts. The change comes amid sagging ratings, and FOX 25 management is placing some of the blame on confusion with Fox News Channel. In February, WHDH 7 came in first place at 10pm, beating WFXT for the first time since WHDH started a 10pm newscast. WHDH won again at 10pm in March. As we first told you a few months ago, the station wants to distinguish itself from the Fox News Channel to avoid confusion that WFXT leans right....

    BOSTON (CBS) – Former gubernatorial candidate Christy Mihos has died. According to the Cape Cod Times, Mihos had cancer and passed away in hospice care in Florida on Saturday.

Mihos served on the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority when the Big Dig was under construction and correctly predicted it would go billions over budget. He also had a very public and messy divorce with his wife in 2012. Christy Mihos was 67 years old.

Americans need to start making business owners and their employees pay up for discriminating against them simply because they dare to show their support for our President. Good for this Trump supporter for fighting back against the intolerant left. A lot of Americans would be happy to contribute to his legal defense… Bartenders at a West Village hot spot served up discrimination — with a liberal twist — refusing to serve a customer because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, according to a lawsuit.

    Weatherford Democrat and other papers ^ | 1/21/17 | Taylor Amerding
    So much for unity – not that it was ever a probability after the “unprecedented” election of Donald Trump. Trump did his share to undermine it, of course. Before he took office this week, he managed to get into a pointless battle with U.S. Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., the civil rights icon; alarm European allies; and irritate adversaries like China. It was enough to give dozens of Democrats an excuse, as if they needed one, to refuse to attend the inaugural. But Trump is not the only reason for the toxic divisions at the launch of his presidency. Why Hillary...
