WSAR News Headlines

FS1’s Colin Cowherd had Roger Goodell on “The Herd” Wednesday, and it didn’t take long for the host to get around to asking the NFL commissioner the question New England Patriots fans are asking in the wake of Monday’s U.S. Appeals Court decision to reinstate quarterback Tom Brady’s four-game Deflategate suspension.

 

 

 

Cowherd: "What if a very convincing owner that you respected said, “Let’s lower it to two (games). It’s bad PR, it seems too harsh.” Would you listen to it?"

 

 

 

Goodell: "I listen to everybody …  but we’ve had these discussions. This was an issue just about a year ago, I think, right after I left the draft. When we make these decisions, it’s with a tremendous amount of thought, a tremendous amount of consideration. Our staff worked very hard on it, and I think that we have given that full consideration. We’re careful -- and this is where the commissioner’s authority is important -- we don’t allow individual clubs to influence an outcome with respect to discipline because it can affect other clubs. The rules of the league, obviously, the competitiveness of the league, that’s handed to the commissioner by the 32 clubs for exactly that reason – to avoid any club getting a competitive advantage. So, while I listen -- I obviously will take anything into consideration, and sometimes it’s meaningful, sometimes there’s another point that is in my view more powerful or our staff may view more powerful -- you have to balance that. And recognizing, Colin, that it’s not likely that I’m going to find a solution that everyone is going to agree on."

The Division of Marine Fisheries (DMF) is cautioning boaters about the serious risk of vessel collision with a group of North Atlantic right whale mother and calf pairs that were recently observed in western Cape Cod Bay. 

 

On April 21, 2016, the Center for Coastal Studies aerial survey team documented 5 right whale mother/calf pairs between Plymouth and Sandwich approximately 2 miles from shore. 

 

The mothers were subsurface feeding on dense patches of zooplankton with calves nearby.

 

Given their behavior and the proximity to vessel traffic, the situation presents a high risk of vessel collision to a sensitive and important segment of the right whale population. 

 

Based on zooplankton sampling in area, conditions are favorable for the food resource to prevail for several more days.  For the safety of both mariners and whales, vessel operators in this area are strongly urged to proceed with caution, reduce speed (less than 10 knots), and post lookouts to avoid colliding with these highly endangered whales.

According to the Massachusetts Office of Campaign and Political Finance, the 2015 Fall River Mayoral Race, as far as the November phase of the contest, saw the Sutter/Correia Race finish 4th overall in the Commonwealth in terms of spending in contested Mayoral contests. 

 

In total, a little over $255,000 was spent by the two Mayoral Finalists, as Sutter outspent the challenger, but was one of a handful of incumbents to lose a chance at another term. 

 

Sutter won the recall election in Fall River in December 2014 to secure a 10 month term.

The Correia Administration is set to make an announcement Tuesday regarding the ongoing Pay As You Throw Program, involving enforcement procedures, and fines, as part of a new compliance program.

 

The Pay As You Throw Program will mark its second anniversary in August; the purchasing of Purple Trash Bags has proven to be a controversial component to an ongoing debate on how solid waste and recycling were to dealt with once the city's landfill closed earlier in the decade.
