'Ridiculous Shenanigans' was the reason given for the 15 minute delay on the 4:30 Salem train out of North Station....the reason? The engineer got on the wrong train, leaving us without a driver to take us north. The on-line comments were pretty funny, and the ticket taker apologized profusely (although he admitted he's in for a stern talking to about his 'ridiculousness' comments

The US Attorney's office reports that John Wilson, who has homes in both Lynnfield and on the Cape, has had money laundering added to to the mail and wire fraud he was already charged with in connection with that California-based ring that used both bribery of college athletic officials and adults taking kids' standardized tests to get kids into the sort of schools their parents hoped would automatically open doors for them.

Two cars collide in Peabody

There's probably a good story behind this photo that Craig Caplan took on Rte. 1 in Peabody at lunchtime today. Note the involvement of a white SUV, similar to the white SUV involved in that other notable recent incident that made all the papers and the national news (although granted, this is a Lexus; the other was an Infiniti).

Good Morning Wilton reports the arrest of Mark Crowley, 56, of Beverly, on charges he had contacted an 11-year-old girl in Wilton, CT and was trying to "groom" her to take and send him nude photos. Crowley was arrested in Beverly last week and extradited to Connecticut today.

Innocent, etc.

WBZ reports officials in Swampscott called in officials from one of those rental companies that let you drop their bikes wherever and demanded action:

“Our biggest concern is the volume. They seem to be kind of popping up everywhere,” says Swampscott Police Lieutenant Gary Lord. He says the green bikes can become safety problems. “With the bikes tipped over at times and just parking in the wrong spots, smack dab in the middle of a sidewalk,” he says.

Flaming Viking memorial boat

Greg Cook and some friends gathered on a North Shore beach last night to honor the memory of Cook's father on the first anniversary of his death:

My Dad was a community college teacher who raced sailboats on weekends for years.

He sometimes talked of hoping to have a Viking Funeral.

I spent a couple days building the boat out of cardboard and paper and glue and string and tape.

(No human remains.) It was about 4-feet-long.

Prevailing sentiment in progressive haunts is “2016, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.” Between a stressful election season, acts of terror, and the crisis in Syria, many of us will be glad to see the calendar page turn on Sunday night. Still, to every cloud there is a silver lining, and at least when it comes to tackling climate change in the US, Massachusetts was a bright spot amidst the clouds of 2016.

The Jewish Journal takes a look at how two area congregations are trying to revitalize themselves. In Marblehead, Rabbi David Meyer figured if the Millennials won't come to him, he'll go to them. The temple now has a young-professionals group - Jews 'n' Brews - that gets together once a month at a local watering hole. Meyer always picks up the tab for the first round. And in Brookline, Congregation Mishkan Tefila is settling in at its new home on the Congregation Kehillath Israel's Harvard Street campus after selling off its own Newton campus that had simply become too large for it.
