WSAR News Headlines

The Boston Globe is reporting that Red Sox Designated Hitter David Ortiz could be shut down at some point in the 2016 season, if the Red Sox fall out of the race in the A-L East, and the A-L Wild Card, as issues with his feet are leading to hours of pre game preperation in order for the 40-year old to play on a regular basis. 

Ortiz announced before the Spring that 2016 would be his final year in a Red Sox Uniform. 


A Ten Taxpayer Suit brought by a group of Fall River Taxpayers last week, will get its first formal  hearing in Taunton District Court on Wednesday afternoon at 2pm.

The 104 page lawsuit is part of the Fall River City Council Agenda for Tuesday and can be had via a link on the City of Fall River Website.  


With the hours counting down before the start of the 2017 Fiscal Year on Friday, the Fall River City Council will take up the process of formally rejecting potions of the Fall River Municipal Budget, while uncertainty over the contract with E-Z Disposal of Revere could be lifted after a Wednesday Court Hearing in Taunton. 


Its possible that some aspects of the budget will be dealt with when the nine members meet as a Committee on Finance at 6pm in Second Floor Council Chambers in Government Center, with a recess being declared at sometime tonight, with the session picking up on Wednesday and perhaps Thursday.
