The National Labor Relations Board this week issued a formal complaint against Cerberus-Steward Health Care, citing the organization for its illegal firing of an exemplary long term nurse at Holy Family Hospital in retaliation for her efforts to successfully organize a union with the Massachusetts Nurses Association/National Nurses United (MNA/NNU). ... "While I was devastated by Cerberus' decision to fire me for no good reason, I am encouraged to see that they may finally be held accountable for their reprehensible behavior and mistreatment of nurses at our hospital,"

'Let's taste some pizza!' Students pick new school slices » Latest News » EagleTribune.com, North Andover, MA

METHUEN — Students flooded the cafeteria at Marsh Grammar School to take part in a blind taste test to determine which pizza will be served at all Methuen schools starting next fall.

 

The taste test was organized by Wayne Vespa, Methuen's director of school nutrition services, in anticipation of what he called an "overhaul" of school lunch menus next year.

 

From chocolate milk to bread products, Vespa said new nutritional guidelines will alter what is served in Methuen's school cafeterias. Specifically with pizza, he said the crust must be made from at least 51 percent whole grain instead of the white flour currently used.

MIAA to discuss issue of boys breaking girls’ swim records

MIAA to discuss issue of boys breaking girls’ swim records | methuen | Scoop.it

excerpt: http://www.boston.com/news/local/articles/2012/01/01/miaa_to_discuss_issue_of_boys_breaking_girls_swim_records_1325369322/

 

Of the 48 high schools with girls’ swim teams this fall, eight - Billerica, Dracut, Marshfield, Methuen, Norwood, Walpole, Weymouth, and St. Peter-Marian of Worcester - had male swimmers on their rosters, according to the MIAA.

Up until recently, this wasn’t much of a problem, since most boys didn’t qualify to compete in the girls’ state championships and they weren’t setting any records.

That changed in November, at the South Division Fall Girls’ Swimming Championships, when Higgins finished the 50-yard freestyle with a winning time of 23.96, breaking the girls’ sectional record of 24.10 set by Cynthia Kangos of Wellesley in 1985. (The boys’ sectional record for that event is 21.40, according to the MIAA website).
