5 Things You Need to Know Today: Aug. 9
EEE has hit close to home: be careful.
1. The state Department of Public Health has confirmed the first incidence of EEE virus in a human in the state—and it was found in a resident of MetroWest. Where the man contracted the virus, however, is unclear. Still, it's as good a time as ever to be vigilant about protecting yourself from mosquitoes. They're more than just pesky.
2. A reader asked us on Facebook when a new bar and grille was set to open in Marlborough. We found the answer, and posted a short story. Have a question you'd like answered? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Did you catch our live chat yesterday with Senate candidate Dean Cavaretta? If not, look for a recap on Marlborough Patch later this morning.
4. A teen writing group will meet tonight at the Marlborough Public Library. Walk-ins are welcome.
