New tales about our favorite royal family getting nutsy on Martha's Vineyard.
Snap quiz: Which of the Kennedys smoked three packs of cigarettes a day? You might suppose it was red-faced, over-weight Ted who looked like the kind of fellow who’d puff away in the dark of his limo while his driver dashed into the Dairy Queen for two Blizzards (and a third one for himself.) But no, it was Jackie O! Jackie who, as we’ve reported in this column, kayaked, swam, and cycled, only stopping to nibble carrot sticks and sip blueberry smoothies along the way to her yoga class. It came as a complete shock, then, when she died so relatively young, at the age of 64. Jackie O?! This paragon of healthy living? But no, in her final days, Jackie confided to her close friend, fashion designer Oleg Cassini, that she had smoked three packs …

A letter to the editor from the HHS senior football players.
Dear Editor, As second-semester student athletes that hope to graduate from Hingham High School on June 1, we are writing to support the field project. We have all played on that field as young boys in youth sports, and bigger men proudly representing our Town. Our favorite community games were usually played in other towns on Friday evenings due to Hingham’s lack of an appropriately lit field, or rescheduled games at another facility due to an unplayable muddy surface in Hingham. Wherever the venue, we played strong and proud, as that is how we were raised. We all hope to pursue college careers, and while some of us were stronger students than athletes, others will be going on to play college ball with athletic scholarships made …

Earlier this month, callers have reported receiving flat tires from potholes on Recreation Park Drive, Whiting Street and Lincoln Street.
As the winter has ended, many dangerous potholes are showing up on Hingham streets. In the month of March, many drivers have reported hitting large potholes in town. Earlier this month, callers have reported receiving flat tires from potholes on Recreation Park Drive, Whiting Street and Lincoln Street ( one near Marshalls and one near Starbucks), according to the Hingham Police Log. Other dangerous potholes have been reported on East Street and Liberty Pole Drive in recent weeks. Do potholes pound your car each time you drive a particular route? Perhaps damage from frost heaves, flooding or nearby construction are a constant issue on a particular stretch of roadway? In our continuing effort to cover quality of life issues in town, we …
A letter from two Hingham residents, regarding the Hingham High School Fields Project.
Wednesday, March 27
Dear Editor: The Town’s recommended allocation of taxpayer dollars is a concept that needs to be understood, particularly during the time leading up to Town Meeting scheduled for April 22 at Hingham High School. Taxpayers have been generous in support of recommended capital projects, including the schools, DPW, fire station and library. The high school field project received strong support for funding both capital (track and tennis courts) and feasibility of a new and improved community field project. Similar to the Hingham Education Foundation in its support of public school, this project also represents a needed public/private partnership that will result in close to $600M of donated funds. Data illustrates that taxpayer dollars …
