Bristol Whitcher runs five days a week as part of her training to take part in the Boston Marathon. My grandfather fought an exhausting, albeit rather short, six-month battle with lung cancer, before he passed away in February 2010, just months before my high school graduation. After high school, Whitcher attended Northeastern University and today works at Cone Communications, a Boston public relations firm that specializes in corporate social responsibility. I know I’m not alone in my heartbreak, and that’s exactly why I’m running. She will be running in the Boston Marathon next month in their memory.
Staff ReportsLACONIA — A man was seriously burned when he tried to carry a burning pan of cooking oil out of his house and tripped and fell at the back door, firefighters said. Michael Bourque, 52, was treated at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston for second-degree burns and was discharged on Monday. Fire Chief Ken Erickson said firefighters arrived at the scene of the accident at 19 Bay Street within two minutes of the first emergency call and the man was brought to the hospital within eight minutes. He was then flown to the hospital in Boston. Erickson said the best thing to do in the case of a fire in a pan is to put a lid on it and not to try to move the pan.
The two FedEx bomb incidents hours apart on Tuesday morning brought to six the number of explosive devices -- five of them detonated -- that have come under investigation in Texas this month as the work of a suspected serial bomber. Baffled investigators have taken the extraordinary step of issuing public appeals through the media asking that whoever is responsible to at least come forward with a demand or an explanation. Later in the morning, authorities were alerted to a suspicious package at a separate FedEx facility in Austin. Local emergency services officials said the victim, a man in his 30, was treated for minor burns and released. A FedEx manager told Reuters the company would begin conducting special safety screenings of packages at its facilities in Schertz and Austin where Tuesday’s incidents occurred.

Well, yes, but if this bill passes, only some parents will get to choose and only at a cost to the rest of the children and their communities. This so-called school voucher bill (actually an education savings account or ESA) would divert public funds to private, often unregulated schools and create a segregated school system. And our public education system will pay, by having even fewer resources and, in turn, be accused of “failing,” when our representatives are the ones who keep delivering the blows. In addition to downshifting private school costs to local taxpayers, there is the persistent question about public funds going to schools that can discriminate as to who they accept. If SB-193 passes, in whatever form, our communities will get either higher taxes or a reduction in services and programs offered by our public schools.

Moon is planning a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month after a flurry of diplomatic activity in Asia, Europe and the United States. "A North Korea-US summit would be a historic event in itself following an inter-Korean summit," Moon said at the presidential Blue House in Seoul after a preparatory meeting for the inter-Korean summit. And depending on progress, it may lead to a three-way summit between the South, North and the United States," he said. South Korea and the United States will resume joint military drills next month, although the exercises are expected to overlap with the inter-Korean summit. A Blue House official also said South Korea was in discussion with China and Japan for a three-way summit in Tokyo in early May.

Not so with Trump, who has taken a hardline view against Iran similar to that of the Saudi crown prince who has compared Iran’s supreme leader to Adolf Hitler. At the same time, the kingdom has seen a cautious new climate of social freedoms with the rise of the 32-year-old crown prince after decades of elderly rulers. Trump and Prince Mohammed discussed an agreement last year for $200 billion worth of Saudi investments with the United States, including large purchases of US military equipment. Republican Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the chamber’s Foreign Relations Committee, said senators questioned the crown prince closely about Yemen during a meeting with him on Tuesday. Crown Prince Mohammed and Kushner have forged a close relationship, which has at times come under criticism in Washington for circumventing normal diplomatic channels.
