Trent Frederic becoming a presence for Bruins

After the Bruins’ strong 4-1 win Sunday, Trent Frederic was asked if he was jealous of Nick Ritchie for getting to throw punches with the Rangers’ Brendan Lemieux. The rugged rookie broke into what has become his trademark grin. “A little bit,” said Frederic with a laugh. “It was pretty cool. Fun to watch. Hopefully I get another shot at, um, 48, and I don’t know. We’ll see. I don’t have enough goals for him, I guess.” Frederic tangled with Lemieux earlier this season in a fight the Bruin was not happy about after the Ranger starting throwing punches before Frederic got his gloves off. So it’s a pretty good bet that the Bruin was practicing the art of some

Boston EMS workers embracing mobile coronavirus vaccine sites

Boston EMS workers are raring to go start giving out coronavirus vaccine shots through the city’s upcoming mobile clinics, saying they believe they can be an answer for the logistical woes that have hampered the rollout. “We’re excited about this,” said Michael MacNeil, the president of the EMS union. “We think it’s a great idea for our guys to get more involved in distributing these vaccines.” He said the EMTs and paramedics are used to helping the people of Boston’s neighborhoods, so they’re a good choice for the partnership for mobile vaccinations that Boston is launching this week. “We’re in these communities every day,” he said. “People are comfortable with us.” MacNeil, talking about the mobile program, said he’s interested

Fauci says it’s ‘very likely’ children will get coronavirus vaccine at start of 2022

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday predicted that children under 12 years old won’t get the coronavirus vaccine until the end of the year at the earliest. Because of ongoing studies that examine the vaccine’s efficacy on elementary school children, it’s “very likely” children won’t get the vaccine until the start of 2022, Fauci said. “If you project realistically when we’ll get enough data to be able to say that elementary school children will be able to be vaccinated, I would think that would be at the earliest the end of the year,” Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And very likely the first quarter of 2022,” he added.

Cuomo asks state AG, top judge, to launch harassment probe

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has asked the state’s attorney general and chief appeals court judge to jointly appoint an independent lawyer to investigate claims he sexually harassed at least two women who worked for him. It was unclear whether the proposal would appease legislative leaders and other top Democrats who had assailed Cuomo’s initial plan to appoint a retired federal judge to review his workplace conduct. “The Governor’s Office wants a review of the sexual harassment claims made against the Governor to be done in a manner beyond reproach,” Beth Garvey, special counsel to the governor, said. “We had selected former Federal Judge Barbara Jones, with a stellar record for qualifications and integrity, but we

A 22-year-old woman is dead after police say she “exited” a car traveling northbound on Route 93 and was then struck by another car that fled the scene.
