    The Dropkick Murphys ‘Literally Hate’ Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker
    01/28/15 - Professional Fire Fighters of Massachusetts
    The Governor used a Dropkick song during an event, which didn't sit well with the band. A Facebook fan wants to know: why is a “union-busting” politician from Wisconsin using the music of a working-class-loving punk band from Boston to greet his supporters during a nationally televised event? The Dropkick Murphys—and their loyal following—aren’t too sure, but they want it to stop. Immediately. Walker is known as the Republican governor who introduced legislation in 2011, called Act 10, that essentially stripped public unions of their collective bargaining rights. The Dropkick Murphys didn’t like that, as made clear when they blasted Fitzgerald back in 2012, a year after the legislation was passed. “We stand beside our Union and Labor brothers and sisters and their families in Wisconsin and all over the U.S.,” they wrote at the time. After all, they did support Mayor Marty Walsh (D-BOSTON), a “union guy.” By Steve Annear | Boston Daily | January 26, 2015 1:36 p.m.

    Remember to Shovel Out Your Nearest Hydrant
    01/27/15 - Rockland Fire Fighters
    Winter storms and plowing operations can often hide the hydrants under a mountain of snow making them impossible to find quickly. In the event of a fire, firefighters have to locate and shovel out fire hydrants before hooking up to them. Precious time is lost and when a fire occurs we need that time to save lives and keep damage to a minimum.
