Here's Five Things.
Good morning, here are five things to know today:
One Pleads Guilty, Two More Await Trial in Jogger Stabbing Case: One man has pleaded guilty and two others await court dates next week on charges stemming from the stabbing of a jogger on Salem Street last year. The victim was surrounded by a group of men on St. Patrick's Day 2011 near the intersection of Salem Street and Park Street, according to police. He was hit over the head with a bottle and stabbed in what police previously said was a random act of violence.
Weather: Mostly sunny skies with highs in the low 80s are expected today and through the weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Dog Lovers Team Up for National Dog Day: Always wanted to adopt a dog but just never found the right time to do so? Why not visit the Animal Rescue League of Boston, Melrose Humane Society or other pet adoption agencies in search of the perfect pooch on National Dog Day. Aug. 26 is National Dog Day. That's the day animal advocate Colleen Paige has designated for honoring all those dogs who bring in the paper, and all those dogs who are neglected.
Event: Meet Me At the Mystic: Join your friends and neighbors in an early morning cheer to the Mystic River and watershed – a resource that has brought so much enjoyment to our community. Meet friends of the Mystic and the Mystic River Watershed Association at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, September 8 at the parking lot beside the new dam between the Upper and Lower Mystic Lakes.
EBT Cards at Farmers Market: Good Idea?: The Medford Farmers Market started allowing EBT card holders to use their benefits since last year, but its been a point of controversy in other communities. “I don’t think American taxpayers should be footing the bill for people’s pie purchases,” Andrea Taber, proprietor of the Ever So Humble Pie Co. in Walpole, told bostonherald.com.
