The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is shutting down cod fishing, from Provincetown, Mass., up to the Canadian border, in an effort to reverse plummeting numbers of the iconic fish in the Gulf of Maine.

Starting Thursday, no fishermen — commercial or recreational — may trawl or use certain large nets that might catch cod for the next six months. Local cod fishermen, who now face an uncertain future, say the government hasn't done enough to maintain cod populations, and they challenge NOAA's cod counts.

Market Basket employee Karen Bostwick, of Tewksbury, has filed a charge with the National Labor Relations Board, contending current Market Basket management is “violating the right to picket and strike.”

The bitter five-week standoff that has cost thousands of Market Basket workers their jobs and prompted a customer boycott may be drawing to a close.

Ousted Market Basket CEO Arthur T. Demoulas submitted a final offer to buy his family’s grocery chain on Friday. The details of the offer have not been made public.

A Market Basket representative says the board is scheduled to meet Sunday or early next week to discuss his final bid.

7 Dead In Lowell Apartment Fire

Jul 10, 2014

Authorities say four adults and three children have died in a fast-moving Massachusetts apartment fire, and nine others have been hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan is pledging to conduct a "long and thorough review" into Thursday morning's fire in Lowell that had tenants jump or hand children to safety.

She says it will be a "fairly long time" before the victims are identified.
