5 Things: Warren in Medford, Proposed Satellite Dish Ordinance

Here's Five Things.

Good morning, here are five things to know today:

Elizabeth Warren made a campaign stop in Medford Wednesday, where she chatted with college students about loans and took a jab at Scott Brown within a stone's throw of his alma mater. Sitting with a group of college students, she called out Brown for voting against a Democrat-sponsored bill in the Senate Tuesday that would freeze Stafford student loan interest rates.

A proposed ordinance that would restrict placement of satellite dishes on Medford homes was sent to a subcommittee for further discussion Tuesday, City Clerk Ed Finn said. The proposed ordinance, brought forward by City Councilor Michael Marks, would allow dishes only to be placed on the front of homes if there are no other viable locations. The satellite service providers would have to sign a statement for the city's building department that the only possible location for the dish is the front of the home.

3. Weather: There's an 80 percent chance of rain today and a 40 percent chance Friday, but things are expected to clear up for the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Highs today are expected to be around 70 degrees.
