You Know You’re in New England When . . .

Fall is great in New England.  The trees are alive with blinding color, there are great events everywhere like this weekend’s Head of the Charles Regatta, and thanks to global warming, people are out and about everywhere, basking in the sun and warmth.

But nothing in New England is bigger in the fall than sports.  The Red Sox are in the playoffs and playing at Fenway Park, and the Patriots are rolling over all comers.  If you’ve never witnessed New England’s obsession with sports, I’m here to tell ya’ that it’s not something isolated to a few sports fans.  It’s part of the culture.

Yesterday, I attended my niece’s wedding.  A beautiful fall ceremony presided over by a justice of the peace.  After the bride kissed the groom, and the two were declared husband and wife, the JP concluded the ceremony by yelling, “Go Sox!”  No one in attendance thought it was out of place.  Welcome to New England.

    The change came as part of a change in the contract between Williamson County and Immigration Customs Enforcement billed as “Modification … relating to Low Cost Telephone Services” on the county commissioners’ agenda Tuesday.

    The commissioners voted 5-0 in favor of the item with no discussion of the matter. After the vote, County Judge Dan Gattis said he was unaware the alteration in the agreement effectively blocked outgoing 9-1-1 phone calls.
