Newburyport, Mass. - Today, Rep. Seth Moulton with Senators Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey announced that they secured $7.3 million in funding for the Newburyport Harbor Federal Navigation Project in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers FY 2021 Work Plan. The win means the federal channel will be dredged for the first time since 2010.
"Harbor dredging rarely makes the news, but it's a huge deal for us," Rep. Moulton said. "Dredging protects thousands of people's homes and land from flooding. It de…

Larry Smith still feels pain from the moment a military training exercise went wrong.
"I landed on the back of my head and my neck and I landed back here. I found out the human body actually bounces. I came down headfirst and I wasn't able to get my hands down because of the way I came off the obstacle," says Smith. "I couldn't feel my feet, couldn't feel anything."
Despite injuries like whiplash and a concussion, he still traveled overseas with his Air Force Unit, serving a year in the Persia…

A spokesman for Moulton said his office contacted the federal Environmental Protection Agency after The Salem News reported on Monday that levels of potentially toxic chemicals remain high despite a cleanup that has been going on for 28 years.

American flag in hand, Debbie Weinstein walked slowly across the lush grass Tuesday at Baker Street Memorial Park in West Roxbury.
The Lakeville woman bent toward the ground, placed the flag beside a flat grave marker, and rose to honor Daniel Weinstein, her father-in-law, an Army private in World War II who died in 2008 at the age of 87. Across this sprawling Jewish cemetery at the edge of Boston, Weinstein and the caretakers who work there appeared to be all alone.
"I just came to pay my res…
Everyone is asking me the same question: Should schools reopen? Actually, the data on this is pretty clear: Yes, kids across the board do better in school. But the question we really should be asking is this: What will we do when one kid in school -even just one - tests positive? Nobody seems to have an answer.
It's the age-old adage attributed to the great World War II general Omar Bradley: "Amateurs talk strategy. Professionals talk logistics." Getting kids in school may be the right strategy… Continue Reading
Over the last week, a debate about when to reopen our country has begun in earnest. If we reopen too soon, we'll lose the progress we've gained by social distancing, see a new spike in cases that overwhelms our hospital system, and inject even more uncertainty into an economy that's buckling under the weight of the worst pandemic in a century. If we wait too long, we'll cause more economic harm than necessary to combat the virus and more Americans will die from that fallout as well; death rates … Continue Reading
When our leaders have failed in crises, America has been at its best when we focus on what we can do rather than who we can blame.
As we entered World War II, the Greatest Generation didn't argue over whose fault it was that the military only had 3,000 planes -- they built 300,000 more. When the Bush administration bungled its response to Hurricane Katrina, millions stepped up to become unofficial first responders, food suppliers -- even caretakers for children separated from their families.
