Ronan, Ledwith, and Walsh selected for HockomockSports Field Hockey Awards

HockomockSports has published the 2017 Hockomock League Field Hockey Awards. The FHS student athletes selected are shown here. Links to the complete listing are also provided. Editor’s Note: The Awards are selected strictly by our staff and have no affiliation to the official Hockomock League all stars. Please note players are listed alphabetical by position.


Cassi Ronan – Franklin – Midfield

Franklin junior Cassi Ronan was the standout performer for the Panthers this fall and helped the team bounce back from a difficult start to the season to finish second in the Kelley-Rex division and take league champ King Philip to double overtime in the second round of the state tournament. Ronan scored 20 goals and recorded 10 assists this year for Franklin, both team highs, and was a constant menace in the Panthers attack. Franklin coach Lisa Cropper said, “Cassi really stepped up as an outstanding leader both on and off the field as a junior captain, leading us in scoring as well as controlling the game all over the field.”


Maeve Ledwith – Franklin – Defense

Franklin sophomore Maeve Ledwith emerged as a standout defensive player for the Panthers this season, filling a much-needed opening in the back line caused by graduation and injuries. Ledwith showed off her quickness and a strong ability to read the game to help Franklin’s defense improve over the course of the season and push the Panthers to second place in the Kelley-Rex division and the second round of the state tournament. Franklin coach Lisa Cropper said of Ledwith, “Just a sophomore, Maeve was our most dynamic defensive player with speed to burn, and outstanding tackling skills.”

Annie Walsh – Franklin – Forward

Franklin junior Annie Walsh had another strong season for the Panthers, helping Franklin recover from a slow start to take second place in the Kelley-Rex division and make another appearance in the state tournament. Despite receiving a lot of attention from opposing defenses, Walsh finished with 16 points (seven goals and nine assists), which was tied for second-most on the team. Walsh was the site’s 2015 Underclassman of the Year and 2016 Player of the Year. Franklin coach Lisa Cropper said, “Annie was our offensive catalyst and became a more complete player and a leader this year.”

In the News: e-cigarettes increasing popular; Gatehouse Media to purchase Boston Herald

From the Milford Daily News, articles of interest for Franklin:
"As e-cigarettes become increasingly popular among young people, they are beginning to come under heightened scrutiny. 
“A lot of kids don’t understand these are dangerous products and contain nicotine,” said Marc Hymovitz, director of government relations for the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network of Massachusetts. 
In Massachusetts, vaping has become significantly more popular than smoking cigarettes among high school students. Using e-cigarettes is not called smoking — it is referred to as vaping — despite the similarities to traditional cigarettes. Unlike combustible cigarettes, however, vaping produces an aerosol vapor instead of a smoke. 
Nearly 24 percent of Massachusetts high school students reported currently using e-cigarettes or vape pens, according to a 2015 Department of Public Health survey. More than 44 percent reported ever trying vaping."

"Boston Herald Publisher Patrick J. Purcell announced today that the media company with its flagship Boston Herald tabloid has reached an agreement for GateHouse Media LLC to acquire the company’s operational assets. The purchase is subject to court approval. 
The announcement came this afternoon as Purcell gathered management and staff in the Herald newspaper’s offices on Fargo Street in Boston’s Seaport District. He spoke first with his long-time management team and immediately following with staff from across all departments.

And I am equally as proud of the excellent staff in all areas of our company who have worked tirelessly to make the Boston Herald a relevant and respected provider of local and regional news for Boston and the area.”

MassBudget: Explaining the State Budget for FY 2018 Including Veto Overrides

Explaining the State Budget for FY 2018 Including Veto Overrides

In the Massachusetts Budget and Policy Center's latest Budget Monitor, "The State Budget for FY 2018 Including Veto Overrides," we see the Fiscal Year 2018 (FY 2018) budget season ending much the way it started: with our state facing difficult fiscal conditions and unable to make the kinds of long-term investments that could significantly improve the quality of life in Massachusetts and expand opportunity in all communities.

At this point in the process -- after the Legislature enacted the budget, the Governor made a number of line item vetoes, and the Legislature overrode virtually all those vetoes and approved some supplemental funding -- we have a state budget that makes some modest investments, particularly in education, child welfare, and in addressing substance use disorders.

The budget, however, continues to rely significantly on temporary fixes: counting 13 months of sales tax revenue in the 12 months of FY 2018; underfunding a number of accounts that will eventually need to be funded -- such as paying for snow and ice removal; and a number of similar strategies. Altogether the budget includes about $750 million in temporary revenue and underfunded accounts. This makes it highly likely that the state will continue to face serious fiscal challenges next year.

A bright spot, however, is tax revenue growth so far this year has been stronger than projected. If that trend continues, it would reduce the need to rely on temporary fixes this year and would put the state in better fiscal condition next year. In the long term, however, there is a significant danger that the federal government will -- to pay for the costs of federal tax cuts -- impose deep cuts in Medicaid, education, and other services currently funded together by the state and federal governments.

This Budget Monitor includes the final funding levels of FY 2017, the current FY 2018 budget, and significant policy changes in each area of the budget. Current 2018 budget levels are also compared to 2001 budget where relevant. For more comprehensive data on historic spending levels for each line item and category of the budget, see MassBudget's Budget Browser.
