    SALEM (MA)— Moments after learning he’ll spend the next three years in prison, Daniel Eremian unloaded on his brother-in-law, Congressman John Tierney, calling the Salem Democrat “the biggest liar in the world.” “He knew everything that was going on,” said Eremian, 62, the former owner of Brodie’s Pub in Peabody who now lives in Boca Raton, Fla. “He sat in the boxes with bookies at Fenway Park.” He called Tierney’s claims to the contrary “hogwash.” Tierney, through his spokeswoman, Kathryn Prael, denied Eremian’s claims in a statement earlier tonight. “Today, clearly bitter at having lost his case and harboring old...

    WASHINGTON — The Prairie State power plant, set amid farm fields and woods in southwestern Illinois, will start producing power soon, beginning a life of burning local coal that's expected to last until at least the 2040s. Prairie State is the largest coal-fired power plant built in the United States in the last 30 years. -snip- What sets Prairie State apart from most other U.S. power plants is that it sits next to its own coal mine. The company figures it has enough coal to run the plant for 30 years, providing electricity for 2.5 million households. Peabody Energy, the...

    PEABODY — It was the contract provision that made Peabody national news. Today, Sept. 11 became a paid holiday for police officers, according to an agreement the police union reached with Mayor Michael Bonfanti last October. The designation means officers will be paid time and a quarter on the anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. The provision was groundbreaking. No other police department in the country had such a holiday, and it triggered a backlash, fueled by local and national news stories, against the Peabody police. They were accused of exploiting a national...

    NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - With thanks to two former colleagues who left CBS in the wake of a scandal, CBS News' Dan Rather accepted broadcast journalism's most prestigious honor on Monday for the "60 Minutes Wednesday" story that exposed the shocking conditions inside Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison. In one of his first public appearances since leaving the network's anchor chair in March, Rather and Mary Mapes received the Peabody Award at a luncheon at the Waldorf Astoria in Midtown Manhattan. Rather took pains to acknowledge Mapes and former CBS News senior vp Betsy West (who also attended the ceremony),...

    When the George Foster Peabody Awards for excellence in electronic media were announced yesterday, they cited a program that was later accused of basing a report on fake documents, "60 Minutes II" - and a program that gleefully engages in the production of fake news, "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." The Peabody given to the Wednesday edition of "60 Minutes" honored an exclusive story, produced by Mary Mapes and reported by Dan Rather, about the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Several months after that journalistic coup, Ms. Mapes was fired and Mr. Rather retired as anchor of...

    SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- The woman romantically tied to ousted Boeing Co. Chief Executive Officer Harry Stonecipher left the world's largest aerospace company on Thursday. She departed on her own accord, according to Boeing. The woman reportedly worked in the company's Washington, D.C.-office. She had been identified as Debra Peabody by various reports; Boeing will not divulge her name. Stonecipher's surprise departure in early March at the request of the company's (BA: news, chart, profile) board came as a shock inside and outside the company. According to the company, he had violated Boeing's code of conduct. "The board concluded that...

    Post-9/11 Still Dominates Peabodys By Julie KellerMore than two years after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, coverage of its aftermath is still making headlines. The 62nd Annual George Foster Peabody Prizes, considered the most prestigious of all broadcast awards, were announced Wednesday, and in-depth analyses of the attacks topped the best-of list for 2002. CNN got a nod for Terror on Tape, an inside look at al Qaeda's terrorist training camps, while CBS and ABC were awarded for their coverage, as well. CBS News/48 Hours got props for 9/11, the Robert De Niro-hosted special featuring live-action footage of...
