    DUDLEY — Police chiefs in Massachusetts have responded angrily to a remark by U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren that the American criminal justice system is “racist ... front to back.” Ms. Warren, a potential Democratic presidential candidate, was speaking before an audience at historically black Dillard University in New Orleans Aug. 3 when she delivered what she called “the hard truth about our criminal justice system: It’s racist ... I mean, front to back.” Ms. Warren cited disproportionate arrests of African-Americans for petty drug possession; an overloaded public defender; and state laws that keep convicted felons from voting even after their...

    In April, 2011, Wind 1 went online near Falmouth, MA's waste plant. The 262 feet tall structure -- 10 feet taller than the Pilgrim Monument in Provincetown -- has blades that extend almost 400 feet, which is about half the height of the John Hancock Building in Boston, reported WGBH-TV. Complaints started almost immediately. According to Fox, Wind 2 is ready to go online but the town said 'enough is enough.' The 262-foot eyesores have created a storm of protests from residents, many of whom blame numerous health problems on the turbine already in use. The blades' low frequency vibrations...

    FALMOUTH, Mass. -- Roughly 1,000 people filled Falmouth's Town Hall green Monday evening to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in unison. The outpouring was spurred by outrage over a decision last Monday by Melissa Freitag, Vice Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, not to say the pledge at the weekly meeting. As acting chairman, Freitag started last Monday night's meeting with a poem, then went on to say she'd "rather not" say the pledge. She then quickly moved on to the night's business. Fellow selectmen later told NewsCenter 5 that they were caught off guard by Freitag's exclusion of the...

    Dr. Howard Dean’s fans come out for the big Democratic summer shindig As Tom Andrews, the director of the leading national antiwar coalition, began his speech at the Maine Democrats’ big outdoor summer shindig in Falmouth, John Baldacci signaled his bodyguard/driver to move the large, dark SUV up the driveway. The vehicle soon hid in the trees, its engine quietly humming. At first, the governor seemed to be paying attention as Andrews, the former First District congressman, launched into rousing tales of how the country, under President George W. Bush, had gone "from peace and prosperity to war and recession."...
