Settling the Chicago Bears' QB Controversy
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Let's get real. Jay Cutler is the Bears quarterback. Yes, Josh McCown has played admirably in his six appearances this season, but if we are to be completely honest with ourselves, this season is all but finished. At 6-6, with the Lions riding a two game cushion over the Bears, and Wild Card spots looking to come from the NFC South and NFC West, the odds of the Bears making the playoffs are slim. In fact, sportclubstats.com lists the current odds of the Bears making the playoffs at worse than 12 to 1. In order to rationally think about the best course of action, one needs to concede that this decision has little to do with this season, and focus on the future. After all, even with McCown playing the best football of his life, it's amazing how quickly the fact that up until hitting the sidelines with a string of injuries, Cutler was on pace for a career season of his own. Even if the goal is simply to win as many games as possible this season, it should be noted that performance by t ...

Hingham State Rep. Announces Bill to Curb Health Care Costs
Hingham - almost 5 years
State Rep. Garrett Bradley, (D-Hingham), announced last week that the House of Representatives will consider a comprehensive plan aimed at curbing health care costs and empowering consumers. The bill, released by the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing, comes six years after Massachusetts passed the nation’s first universal health care law. The bill provides a responsible way to curb health care costs by attempting to build on existing incentives and market forces. “Health care expenses represent nearly half of the state budget, and those costs will continue to grow unless we take action to limit costs while maintaining high quality health care services,” said Rep. Bradley.  “By offering more information to health care consumers, we will be empowering residents to make health care decisions that are right for them, and giving providers an incentive to practice the best possible care at a reasonable price.” The bill empowers consumers by giving them informatio ...

Brush Fire Dies Down After Scorching 20 Acres in Dedham
Dedham Patch - almost 5 years
  A brush fire that tore through an estimated 20 acres of land on the Dedham-Boston line had died down significantly by 11 p.m. Thursday evening, a Dedham fire official said. The fire started at about 5:50 p.m., and calls flooded into the dispatch center at the Dedham Police Department, with reports that the smoke could be seen for miles away.  The black smoke billowed high into the sky, leading neighbors to speculate about the fire's cause. At times the fire flared up to 15 feet into the air just 300 yards away from homes on Hastings Road, officials said. Dedham Fire Deputy Chief Donald Beltis told Dedham Patch that the investigation into how the blaze started hasn't begun as firefighters haven't been able to approach the fire. "We weren't going to go into the face of a fire to see it," Beltis said. Rumors of a plane crash are unsubstantiated at this time. The forest that borders Rte. 128 is deep, overgrown and has 2 feet of muck in spots. That combined with sh ...

But I'd especially like to thank the crew that we've had now for a while. It's the best group of guys behind the scenes that I've ever worked with. They are most forgiving of us who stand in the bright light, and have done a lot that they really aren't required to do, just to make sure that my comfort and safety are well taken care of. I know there's a lot of different versions out there on why I'm leaving so let me just say that it's time for me to go, and yes, it makes me sad to have to admit that.
