Each week, Lynnfield Patch takes a look at an interesting and/or distinctive property currently on the market.
Most weeks while doing the Home of the Week column, I resist the temptation to highlight the most expensive places on the market because there can be a huge difference between "expensive" and "interesting and distinctive." Here's an exception that just went on the market at 5 Ashley Court in Lynnfield however. It's an 8,000 square foot estate, described in the listing as "palatial and meticulously maintained." Along with all that living space, there's a three-quarter of an acre lot to unwind on. There's a chef's kitchen, a second-story atrium with good natural light, a formal dining room complete with a butler's pantry, a couple of hut tubs, and an entertainment room with a bar. This also happens to be the only real estate listing I've …

Sylvester is all lover, not an ounce of fighter in him
Sylvester Is a Lover, Not a Fighter My name is Sylvester, but my last name is Reed, not Stallone. While I think I have the charisma of a movie star, I would rather be the lead in a romantic comedy, not a bang ‘em up fighter flick like Rambo or Rocky. I have the green eyes of a leading man so while I admit I look tough, at heart I am a lover, not a fighter. Actually, that is an understatement. I am a four-year-old fuzzy cuddle guy who wants nothing more than to be with you. I honestly can’t tell you how I ended up on the streets of Wakefield, but I know I am so glad to be off of them and in a warm comfortable home with humans. I love humans. I love their company, their conversations, to which I am a huge contributor, and of course…

The National Transportation Safety Board recommends reducing the limit. Some say it would save lives. Others say it's unreasonable.
One drink could be the standard for drunken driving – at least for some people if the National Transporation Safety Board has its way. On Tuesday, the NTSB recommended states lower the blood-alcohol threshold for driving under the influence from 0.08 percent to 0.05 percent. What do you think? Is the proposal reasonable? About 10,000 deaths a year are related to drunken driving. The NTSB says the lower limit would save 500 to 800 lives a year. Officials at the American Beverage Institute called the proposal "ludicrous." It said the average woman could reach the 0.05 percent limit by having one drink. There were 114 DUI fatalities in Massachusetts in 2012, which were 34 percent of traffic-related fatalities last year, according to Mothers…
Recap and analysis of the week in state government.
Like pieces of a puzzle that don't quite fit together yet, the Big Three may have been separated at birth, but with each incremental step their destinies seem to grow more intertwined. No, we're not talking about those Big Three - Gov. Deval Patrick, Senate President Therese Murray and Speaker Robert DeLeo - though they play major character roles in this thickening plot. Instead, three bills have come to define the early months of the 2013 legislative agenda and resolutions on tax hikes, local road funding and the annual state budget continue to be elusive and dependent on one another. Patrick spent the early part of his week welcoming British Prime Minister David Cameron to Boston for a few quick meetings and a visit to the Copley …
