Fifth human case of EEE raises risk levels in Ashland, Hopedale and Milford to critical
A fifth human case of Eastern equine encephalitis virus in Massachusetts has been diagnosed in a man in his 70s from southwestern Middlesex County, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health said.

Project Lead the Way lets students taste real-world career possibilities
MILFORD – Sixteen-year-old Ana Demelo ducked under the yellow caution tape inside Milford High School Thursday, pulled back her hair, and crouched over the taped outline of a body on the floor.
She studied the splatter of something that looked like blood, a shoe-print, and an empty syringe, paying close attention to a handful of pills next to a yellow evidence marker.
Project Lead the Way is a national organization that develops curricula aimed at teaching students skills they can use in a career, lay a base for a college major, or both. Classes from the program are peppered in districts across the Milford and MetroWest area.
