WFXT reports on the civil-rights charges, says police set up a surveillance camera and caught him in the act.
Prevailing sentiment in progressive haunts is “2016, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Between a stressful election season, acts of terror, and the crisis in Syria, many of us will be glad to see the calendar page turn on Sunday night. Still, to every cloud there is a silver lining, and at least when it comes to tackling climate change in the US, Massachusetts was a bright spot amidst the clouds of 2016.
WBZ reports how a dump truck somehow hit the bottom of an overpass on 128 in Lexington this morning, snarling traffic like nobody's business.

We need to stop litter and keep Massachusetts clean by spreading the word about the Yes on Question 2 campaign.
The Bottle Bill is the most effective recycling tool we have. Eighty percent of bottles covered by the Bottle Bill’s 5-cent deposit are recycled. Yes on Question 2 would add a bottle deposit to water, sports drinks, tea, juices, and other drinks that were not included in the original bill because they were not popular when the law was passed in 1982.
We need your vote on November 4 to update the Bottle Bill.
Keds, which it turns out is headquartered in our very own Lexington, wants Vans to stop putting little blue rectangular logos on the back of its sneakers.
In a lawsuit filed yesterday in US District Court in Boston, Keds says it's been known for its "Blue Label" logo since 1925 and that the Vans logos might make people think the sneakers have that Keds quality, when, in fact, they're just some California company's attempt at footwear.
Plus, Keds charges, Vans signed an agreement in 2012 to knock it off with the little blue rectangular logos and now it's doing it again.
J.L. Bell fires grapeshot at the notion that the Battle of Lexington supposedly started with a verbal volley in which a Redcoat commander demanded the Minutemen put down their arms in the name of George III, the sovereign king of England and a minster retorted that "We recognize no Sovereign but God and no King but Jesus."
Besides the fact that none of the dozens of participants in the battle who wrote down their recollections of it ever mentioned the alleged exchange, the minister who allegedly made the retort wasn't even on the Lexington Common that morning.

The Boston Business Journal reports Lynn is looking to hire a company to run a ferry to Boston this year.
The town of Lexington has sued a Louisiana firetruck company, alleging the company sold it a lemon of a firetruck that has problems ranging from steering, transmission and brake failures to a water gun going off by itself.
In its suit, filed earlier this month, the town wants Ferrara Fire Apparatus to reimburse it the $500,000 cost of Engine 2, the $465,000 Town Meeting appropriated earlier this year to buy a replacement, the money the town's already spent on non-warranty servicing and lawyer's fees. Plus, the town wants "multiple damages" for its problems with the troublesome truck.
