‘The People That Matter:’ Updates on Victims, Vigils

Thousands of Facebook users have been sharing this passionate post from the ‘Salty Dad’ fan page (must be signed in to Facebook to see), expressing a desire to learn more about the Boston Marathon victims, and less about the suspects.

“It is time that we, as a nation, demand that the press, the politicians, the pundits, and the 24 hour ‘news’ channels news start focusing on the people that matter, and ignore the ones that don’t,” the original poster wrote, referencing the media attention given to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.  

We at Patch want to do our part keeping the victims’ memories alive. We’ll update this article as often as possible, with articles about and for the victims that have been published in Patch and other media outlets. We’ll also include stories about heroism, about helpers, about fundraisers and vigils. If you are looking for other coverage, too, you may refer to this page that compiles the latest about the investigation. read more

State House News Service Weekly Roundup: Games People Play

Governor Deval Patrick.

There have been rifts over the gas tax and collective bargaining rights, skirmishes over sentencing reforms and more serious disagreements about casinos – not once but twice.

But not since the great staring contest of 2010 between Speaker Robert DeLeo and Gov. Deval Patrick over slot parlors have hostilities between the executive and legislative branches been so open and raw. 

Patrick this week didn’t just threaten to veto the Democratic leadership’s proposal to raise $ 500 million for transportation with tax hikes on gas, tobacco and businesses. He eviscerated it, challenging not just the policy points, but the sincerity of the leaders who crafted it.

“To come up with this plan is just not serious and to say it’s a plan, to say it’s a solution is just not serious and I’m not going to play that game. I’m still here. I’m still engaged. I’m still willing to talk about compromise,” Patrick said, calling it “too small” and too short-sighted after years of neglected infrastructure investments. read more
