Grace Hightower's soon-to-be-ex husband Robert De Niro is kinda going through some sh*t. His "Goodfellas" co-star Ray Liotta got a guest voice spot on "SpongeBob SquarePants" and he didn't. Some deranged former male stripper sent him some very crazy fan mail. Someone buy De Niro a drink...and you can do just that with this Broadway World promotion commemorating A Bronx Tale: The Musical coming to Boston:

This South Shore home, which has already been rebuilt by taxpayers many times and gets flooded each year, just got 180k more. Rather than moving out of the flood plain, we're on the hook to keep elevating and rebuilding. http://necir.org/2015/06/03/scituate-house-keeps-getting-money/

The Patriot Ledger reports the Scituate fishmonger who bought an 18-lb. lobster (which he named Luke) plans to toss him back into the briny depths from which he came after evading traps for 75 years.

Channels 4, 5 and 7 all have reporters along the Scituate seawall this noon hour, reporting on the giant boulders that are all that separate the Scituate lighthouse from certain doom. Channel 7's Nicole Oliverio, though, was the only one standing right on the seawall, and she struggled against the wind to maintain her footing.

UPDATE: NECN also has a reporter at the Scituate seawall.

I recently wrote a story and made a video about the lighthouse in Scituate. It has a pretty interesting history...and a new lightkeeper. You can read my article and watch the video here.

Channel 5 reports on the 2:30 p.m. explosion on Turner Road that set other houses on fire and broke windows a half mile away.

Remember the other day when the Globe reported on what seemed to be Yet Another Only at the MBTA Moment, i.e., that the T would have to tear down a brand-new bridge on the brand-new Greenbush line?

Today, the Globe ran the following:

Because of a reporting error, an article in Friday’s City & Region section about a bridge that needed to be replaced as part of the Greenbush commuter rail line project incorrectly reported the bridge's age. The bridge being rebuilt in Scituate is more than 100 years old and is downstream from a three-year-old rail-crossing bridge.
