Richard Heos will represent the Twelve Visions Party.
Massachusetts goes to the polls to choose its next U.S. senator on June 25. Democratic candidate Edward Markey and Republican candidate Gabriel Gomez are looking to fill the seat vacated by John Kerry, who became Secretary of State in the Obama Adminstration, but there is a third person also on the ballot -- Richard Heos, a Woburn resident representing the Twelve Visions Party. After serving in the U.S. Navy, the 66-year-old currently is self-employed and serves as an official in local area youth sports leagues. Although Heos is a longshot, he is no stranger to politics, volunteering in several Republican organizations over the years as well as running for Mayor of Woburn in 1991. "This race is similar in a way; I lost that one by a 7-to-1…

The National Weather Service has issued a flood warning for Burlington and some surrounding communities.
It's raining again, and that means that already swollen rivers and streams are taking on additional water.

The warning remains in effect until 5:45 p.m. and states that trained weather spotters are reporting rainfall amounts as high as 1.25 inches within 30 minutes. "Areas prone to flash flooding include Route 9 from Metro West into Boston," the warning states. It goes on to specifically mention Newton as a location that should expect some flooding.

Burlington High School softball head coach Kristen Mahoney looks back on a memorable season, which ended with a state title game loss on Saturday.
The end result may have been forgettable for the Burlington High School softball team. But the season was one they’ll remember for many years to come. On Saturday the team fell, 2-1, to Grafton in the Division 2 state championship game. While the Red Devils ended their campaign one win shy of the program’s first ever state title, head coach Kristen Mahoney said it was a season she will remember for a long time. “It was a tough loss, but the message after the game was that we had an excellent season,” said Mahoney. “We had such a great group of girls. Quite honestly, it was just sad to see it end. It was a great, great season and these girls played so well together.” Mahoney’s charges beat Swampscott, Dracut, Amesbury and Tewksbury to win …

Bomb related incidents in Burlington and Woburn earlier this month are just the latest examples of a statewide increase in Boston Marathon copycat cases, according to a report in the Boston Globe. On June 6, Adam Crane allegedly made a pipe bomb and detonated it on Elm Street in Woburn and another the previous week at the Mill Pond Reservoir in Burlington. The Elm Street bomb caused response from the Northeast Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council (NEMLEC) SWAT team and other law enforcement officials. Crane, 24, could spend at least 2 1/2 years in prison, according to the Globe report. The newspaper also added that that Cambridge officials fielded 215 calls for unattended or suspicious packages between April 15 and June 6. According to the…
