BOSTON (Reuters) – The son of a former Boston Red Sox player and broadcaster was sentenced to life in prison without parole after pleading guilty on Tuesday to murdering his girlfriend in their apartment outside Boston last August.
Jared Remy, 35, changed his plea to guilty from not guilty at a hearing in Middlesex Superior Court on charges that he stabbed Jennifer Martel, 27, to death after a fight at the Waltham, Massachusetts, apartment where they lived with their 5-year-old daughter.

KEENE N.H. (Reuters) – When the rain comes down heavy in Keene, New Hampshire, auto mechanic Tom Stevens knows what to do: Drive the cars to the top of the hill near his garage and get everything else up onto shelves before floodwater starts seeping up through the floor drains.
Variations of this drill are second nature to many residents of a city that has dealt repeatedly with the Ashuelot River and Beaver Brook overflowing their banks, bringing three floods considered to be 100-year events in the past decade alone.
