The MBTA voted for 99-year leases with Medfield, Dover, Needham and Newton.
(A PRESS RELEASE FROM MBTA) The MBTA Board of Directors this week voted to authorize 99-year leases with Newton and the towns of Dover, Medfield and Needham for portions of an abandoned railroad right-of-way for use as a rail trail.

One of the candidates at the debate was Dover resident and attorney Jim King.
The five Democrats competing to take on U.S. Senator Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) for his seat in Washington squared off in a 90-minute forum Tuesday night at Stonehill College's Martin Institute in Easton. The forum, which was sponsored by the Joseph A. Martin Institute, Wickedlocal.com and WCVB.com, was intended as more of a discussion than a debate, according to Enterprise News and Patriot Ledger Editor Chazy Dowaliby, who moderated. It was just that - as the candidates rarely disagreed on any issue. "I think the ultimate test is defeating Scott Brown," said Wayland Rep. Tom Conroy "That's what it is all about." Conroy was joined on stage by Marisa DeFranco, a North Shore lawyer specializing in immigration; Attorney Jim King of Dover; Herb …
