The Grafton Indians faced the Westborough Rangers on Friday.
Although slow to gain momentum in the first quarter, Grafton's top scorers were too much for the Westborough defense to handle on Friday during one of the final lacrosse games of the season. "We try to keep the intensity up the whole time, listen to eachother on the field and listen to coaches on the sideline," said Alan Rotatori, head coach of Grafton's Varsity lacrosse team. The team is 15-2 this season and has qualified for the playoffs which start following the final two games of the season. The Indians defeated the Rangers 17-9.

Tell him how your phone was acting strangely, and you could have a date Last week, a guy shopping in Ocean State Job Lot in Westborough noticed you. You being a redhead on crutches with a cell phone that was apparently doing "weird things" while you were shopping. We're not sure what your cell phone could have been up to, but if you can prove you're the woman, this man wants to talk with you. He would have talked to you then, but it would have been "weird" because he had his child with him.

Additionally, one town gave us plenty of fodder for what could have been an entire unusual police news column.
If he had just gone to court the first time, this wouldn't have happened. A Fitchburg man found himself on the wrong side of the bar in Westborough District Court this week when he was arrested for failing to appear for jury duty. When police pulled him over for failing to stop/yield, they found that he was wanted for skipping out on jury duty. No doubt his trip to court as a defendant will be less pleasant—and more expensive—than if he had simply shown up for jury duty. Why did the turtle cross the road? In Shrewsbury, he crossed the road because if he had stayed in the middle of it, he would have continued to block traffic. Shrewsbury police recently were called to Grafton Street to remove the turtle from the road, as cars were backing …
Changes in the appearance of the animated starlet in Brave have created some backlash toward Disney.
Less than a year after the release of Disney's Brave, the show's leading lady Merida has been invited to join the rank of Disney princesses. According to Boston.com, however, the move doesn't come without changes to the character that left some upset. "Disney has unleashed a nation of protective mama bears, and they're furious about the makeovers Disney Princesses get once they become consumer products: exaggerated doe eyes, kissable lips, rising cheekbones and off-the-shoulder dresses," Boston.com reports. What do you think about Disney's changes to Merida? Do you think making her a princess takes away some of her appeal? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Recap and analysis of the week in state government.
Like pieces of a puzzle that don't quite fit together yet, the Big Three may have been separated at birth, but with each incremental step their destinies seem to grow more intertwined. No, we're not talking about those Big Three - Gov. Deval Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray and Speaker Robert DeLeo - though they play major character roles in this thickening plot. Instead, three bills have come to define the early months of the 2013 legislative agenda and resolutions on tax hikes, local road funding and the annual state budget continue to be elusive and dependent on one another. Patrick spent the early part of his week welcoming British Prime Minister David Cameron to Boston for a few quick meetings and a visit to the Copley …
