Things to know for Monday

It’s Monday, February 26th and if you just so happened to see a reckless crew of ATV and dirt bike riders making their way through the greenway on Saturday afternoon, rest assured they were eventually stopped. 

The group of about 25-35 off-roaders were stopped at a road block near Exit 18 on Interstate 93 where state troopers attempted to corral the pack as some tried to get away. The Boston Herald reports more than a dozen bikes being seized and one biker was even shot in the foot. 


Here’s what you need to know for the week ahead…
