Former major league baseball player Jose Canseco filed suit today against the Worcester Tornadoes and the Can-Am League, alleging he is owed an unspecified sum of money for his brief stint with the local team.
Update: Downtown Hilton also suing the ‘Nads.
The connection between the national organization and volunteer moderators (“mods”) like Mr. Martin was never very strong. Years ago, Mr. Martin decided to ensure he could withdraw the group from the national network if necessary, and he removed moderator privileges from anyone in the Worcester group with a freecycle.org address.
(Anecdote: Years ago I tried to join this but for some reason they were unconvinced I was an area resident, and I was declined. Maybe time to join again.)
Correction: In GLW’s article
on places to take your unleashed dog, Boynton Park was mentioned. It is not a dog park. GLW presumably regrets the error.

We’re about a week into the implementation of Worcester’s latest anti-panhandling plan. So far, the City has an outreach worker talking to panhandlers. My own unscientific observation is that there are less people with signs on corners.
Here’s a photo sent to us today of someone with a clipboard, presumably an outreach worker, talking to a presumptive panhandler in Elm Park.

According to the State House News Service , Worcester state Rep. John Binienda is in the hospital today after fainting yesterday at the State House. He has diabetes and had blood sugar problems.
Unrelated: A search at telegram.com finds no articles with “Binienda” in the past 30 days.
Update: T&G article now up:
His aide John Murphy said that Mr. Binienda was feeling woozy yesterday and briefly passed out before paramedics were called and treated him at the Statehouse. He was conscious and alert after being treated and paramedics recommended he go to the hospital. They transported him to nearby Massachusetts General Hospital.
Mr. Murphy said Mr. Binienda was feeling well enough last night to call his office to keep track of the flurry of legislative activity under way until the final formal session ended at midnight. He said Mr. Binienda was being monitored and having some tests done today but was feeling better.
“He is a diabetic and has been for many years. His sugar levels were very high and he did faint so to speak, but came to very quickly,” Mr. Murphy said.
