Monsanto Cancer Victims Can Be Compensated

By Josh Resnek

In an example of justice coming late rather than never, former Monsanto employees who worked at the Everett plant before 1981 afflicted with cancer are now entitled to special benefits, according to Robert McKim Norris of Norris Injury Lawyers, a prominent Alabama law rm specializing in asbestos poisoning and disease.

Everett Plant workers employed before 1981 diagnosed with various cancers are entitled to special benefits. Lung cancer, esophageal cancer, laryngeal cancer, pharyngeal cancer, stomach cancer, colon cancer, rectal cancer, and mesothelioma are frequently caused by asbestos exposure.

Asbestos-laced products were used for decades at Monsanto. Neither employees nor management were aware of the asbestos risk.

The former Monsanto site is now the Gateway Center.

According to the National Cancer Institute, “It can take from 10 to 40 years or more for asbestos-related cancers to appear.”

Senator Sal’s Time

I was taught when I was growing up that sometimes its good to keep my mouth shut and to watch and to examine what is coming down right in front of me.

During a long life doing this stuff I have come close to watching a few heavy hitters play the political game.

Former Governor Deval Patrick was one of those.

The late Mayor Tom Menino was another.

When Governor Patrick came to a meeting in Everett, Chelsea or Revere he always started at the back of whatever room it was he was entering.

This is where his magic always began.

One by one he would introduce himself and go down the long rows one after the other until he had introduced himself to everyone inside the room and let them know who he is.

This is very, very impressive. It is something to watch and to admire – that is – meeting the voting public and letting the voting public have a bit of him! Continue reading — Eye On Everett —

And, though, I’m a bit hesitant to share the location of some of these most quaint, charming, and revitalizing stops through the region – with the hope that they may remain their tucked away, not overly populated, picturesque selves – I’ll divulge this info so that you might enjoy these day trips away from home as much as I have.

So, listed by order of nearest distance, here are five regional destinations for your next summer road trip. Continue reading Summer Getaways
