HOLLISTON - Pleasure Point Beach on Lake Winthrop will be closed through next week after testing revealed the beach has too much bacteria in it for safe swimming. Water samples collected on two consecutive days this week were found to have more than 235 colonies of bacteria, according to Health Director Scott Moles. Moles said it was a “general bacteria” that most likely got into the water from geese droppings, rain or both. If a sample is found to have bacteria exceeding the safety level, it is tested again the following day. If the second day’s results also exceed the safety level, the beach is closed until the following week when the water can be tested again.

Nelson Cruz, Anthony Rizzo, Joey Gallo, Jose Berrios and Brad Hand, acquired by those contenders before the trade deadline, all now compete directly against the Red Sox in the race for a division crown. At one time or another, they were all identified as the top player in the Red Sox system. The Red Sox, if they can summon their form through the season’s first 103 games, could still be a factor deep into the fall.

Charlie Baker to mandate that Massachusetts residents follow the latest federal recommendation on mask-wearing, the governor again defended his mask advisory as better-suited to the COVID-19 situation in Massachusetts. I think our guidance, which really focused on vulnerable populations and people who are most at risk, was the right way to go." On Monday, Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Downing urged Baker "to implement a mask mandate that mirrors the CDC's updated guidance" and said Baker ought to declare another state of emergency around the coronavirus. You have some communities in Massachusetts where 85% to 95% of all the kids in their middle and high school are vaccinated. Again, I don't think you can apply a national standard to a state that is in the kind of space that we're in."
