The Supreme Judicial Court today ordered a trial for a man charged with reckless endangerment of a child after he was allegedly caught drunkenly stumbling down the Kingston/Plymouth Line with his 11-year-old son.

A district-court judge had tossed the charge - but left standing another criminal complaint for violating a law against walking on train tracks - saying prosecutors had failed to prove that David Coggeshall knew he was putting his son at risk as they ambled down the tracks in 2013.

The state's highest court ruled, in essence: Please. Read more.

FAA officials spent 3 1/2 hours listening to residents and elected officials rip into the way planes now fly over a host of communities, at a Milton meeting on Thursday that they agreed to attend only after US Rep. Stephen Lynch threatened to cut the agency's budget for community outreach by $25 million.

The meeting brought out several hundred people from Belmont to Hull, to complain that a new GPS-based flight-path system may be great for airline profits and schedules, but means unlucky residents are now subjected to endless waves of planes, often starting at 5 a.m., for days on end, because of the way it slots planes into very narrow air corridors. Residents also said planes are flying lower than they used to, further contributing to the noise. Read more.

The last time the song was up for the honor, its main sponsor, state Rep. Marty Walsh, got himself elected mayor, too, and the measure died.

The other sponsor of this year's bill, David Linsky, is from Natick, which doesn't have a mayor.
