Bill Belichick & the Case of the Botched Brians
Brian Flores was surprised to get a congratulatory text from Bill Belichick informing him he had landed his dream job with The Giants. There was just one problem: Bill had texted the wrong Brian. Flores hadn't even interviewed yet and The Giants had already given the position away. What follows is a class-action claim addressing racist hiring practices that have plagued the NFL for far too long. We also predict our favorite Superbowl commercials and praise Peyton Manning's comedic timing on SNL.

Worcester Cold Case: Patricia Gonyea
Patty Ann was a 17-year-old student at South High in 1984. Her two best friends are also named Patty. Patty Dansereau and Patti Weagle L’Ecuyer. Collectively, they were known as “the 3 Patties.” On a cold, rainy Wednesday night in October, Patty Ann called her mom to say she'd be late coming home from her boyfriend's house where she was playing Trivial Pursuit. The next morning, family and police discovered her belongings in an alley near the train tracks and her body in a window well at a factory on Grand Street. Before her passing, Patty’s mother told the Telegram and Gazette, "I still have to believe that somebody saw something that night, or the murderer has told somebody something, and that person or persons aren’t talking. Maybe someday someone will come forward, and that will be the break in this case that we’ve been waiting for...” Thank you to Heather Bish for shining a light on this Worcester cold case.

Diane Cotter on "The Toxic Job of Being a Hero"

We are eager to see what comes next.

What are your arts and culture priorities for Worcester?
Worcester Arts Council supports our efforts to elevate the voices of womxn & girls in the community through podcasting. Our most recent podcast pop-up took place in Great Brook Valley at the first POW! WOW! Worcester event of the summer. Artist Stephanie Benenson of Harbor Voices was on site to oversee an art installation titled "Not Alone" that combined recordings (5:30-15:20) and lasers to deliver a powerful message about mental health. Thank you for taking the WAC 2021 Funding Priorities survey. Its purpose is to identify areas of community interest for the Council's upcoming grant cycle. Projects funded under these priorities will be completed in 2022. This survey should take about 3-4 minutes to complete. To enter for a chance to win a pair of Bose QuietComfort Earbuds ($279 value), you must provide your name and email address at the end of the survey before you submit your answers.

Microschools with Shara Conroy
SchoolHouse aims to improve both the quality and safety of K-8 education by working hand in hand with parents to create local “pods” that provide a tailored learning experience. Nevertheless, a powerful New York Times op-ed recently referred to pods as “the latest in school segregation.” Clara Totenberg Green went on to say, “At face value, learning pods seem a necessary solution to the current crisis. But in practice, they will exacerbate inequities, racial segregation, and the opportunity gap within schools.” Shara explains why microschools are the right model for her right now.
