And by the way, gentleman Joe is respected at the State House and will be welcomed back when reelected. What kind of welcome sign at the State House would there be there for Steve “Stat” Smith? None, in my opinion.   Stat Smith It’s really outrageous and arrogant when you think about Stephen Stat Smith running for State Rep after pleading guilty in federal court to tampering…

    Lynnfield welcomes cars from yesteryear By Christopher Roberson From a 1929 Ford Roadster to a 2017 Ford Shelby GT350, 54 cars with popped hoods were on display at the Lynnfield Senior Center during the 12th Annual Antique Car Show.
