Video shines positive light on Fall River amid Jasiel Correia trial

FALL RIVER — As we head into what is bound to be a difficult few weeks for the city, it feels appropriate to point out the positives.

The trial of former mayor Jasiel Correia II is set to begin Tuesday in Boston, no doubt shining a negative light on the city, particularly for outsiders. While local leaders we talked to say the city has and will continue to bounce back from the stain of Correia’s two arrests, we know it’s all too easy for some in the state and beyond to paint Fall River with a broad brush.

McDonald was pissed. The narrative went like this: “Hey everybody, this is Reido from Odd Man Rush, coming to you from the tap room, well, one of the restrooms here in the tap room. Just a quick message, a PSA that goes out to the piece of shit, human-slash-paraquat who decides it’s funny to take

Charlotte native finds tooth of 11-foot prehistoric beast in South Carolina river | State and Regional News

“On all fours, they could look you in the eye,” Proulx said.

The bears were so enormous that cave scratchings from them have been found 15 feet from the ground, he said.

Officials at the South Carolina State Museum initially thought the tooth belonged to a prehistoric lion, Proulx said, because of tiny cracks around the tooth. The teeth of prehistoric lions had tiny grooves around them, while short-faced bears had smooth teeth, he said.

The cracks on his bear tooth occurred over the centuries, he said.
