"THE SENATE IS POISED to debate legislation Thursday to legalize sports betting in Massachusetts, but the bill that emerged Friday afternoon from a Senate committee differs in several important ways from the sports betting bill that has already cleared the House.
The long-awaited wagering bill was advanced favorably out of the Senate Ways and Means Committee late Friday afternoon, according to a Senate source. If it passes the Senate next week, lawmakers would have about three months to reconcile their differing approaches and get a bill to Gov. Charlie Baker, who has supported legalizing sports wagering for years."

In an effort to combat inflation, as well as the stigma against mental illness, @vfjrenovations has reduced its pricing for 2022 from $320 to $295 for the raised garden bed and from $210 to $195 for the planter.
Quantities are limited, so purchase yours today and spread the word!
Did you know that in 2020, 1 of every 5 adults experienced mental illness? All profits will be donated to an organization that supports mental health awareness.

Disclosure: I did purchase a 2.½ ‘x6’ garden bed in 2020. I am looking forward to using it again this year.

FM #781 = This is the Franklin Matters radio show, number 781 in the series.
This session of the radio show shares the Special School Committee - Superintendent Candidate Interview meeting held Wednesday, April 13, 2022.
There is only one item on the agenda: Candidate for Superintendent of Schools Interview
Denise Spencer, School Committee Chair opened the meeting. 14 questions were going to be asked of the candidate, Asst Superintendent Lucas Giguere. 2 questions for each member of the committee, one at a time, with a break to check on timing, etc. midway through the questions.
The meeting recording runs an hour and 5 minutes. The School Committee will also meet in public to deliberate on the candidate qualification and make a decision on April 26.
