Wicked Pissed. New England’s Most Famous Feuds

by Press Release
July 30, 2017

Encore:

From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries.

 

From sports to politics, food to finance, aviation to engineering, to bitter disputes over simple boundaries themselves, New England’s feuds have peppered the region’s life for centuries. They’ve been raw and rowdy, sometimes high minded and humorous, and in a place renowned for its deep sense of history, often long-running and legendary. There are even some that will undoubtedly outlast the region’s ancient low stonewalls. Ted Reinstein, a native New Englander and local writer, offers us fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England in this fun, accessible book. Bringing to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area itself, Reinstein demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed.
About the author:
Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for “Chronicle,” WCVB-TV/Boston’s award-winning—and America’s longest-running, locally-produced—nightly news magazine since 1995. In addition, he is a regular contributor for the station’s political roundtable show and writes a weekly opinion column. He lives in Holliston with his wife and two daughters. He is also the author of New England Notebook (GPP 2013)

Ted Reinstein Biography


Since 1995, Ted Reinstein has been a reporter for Boston’s WCVB-TV’s “Chronicle,” the nation’s longest-running locally-produced nightly newsmagazine. He also provides reports and commentary on Sunday mornings for the station’s political roundtable show, “On The Record.” Ted has been a member of the WCVB editorial board since 2010.
Elsewhere on television, Ted hosted the premiere season of the Discovery Channel's “Popular Mechanics” show, and hosted a special on America’s lighthouses for HGTV. For the Travel Channel's photo/adventure series, “FreezeFrame.” he explored Hawaii's volcanoes, the caves of Puerto Rico, and the South Pacific islands of Tahiti.
In 2002, he was part of a Chronicle team that received a prestigious National DuPont-Columbia Broadcast Journalism Award for Chronicle’s coverage of Boston’s Big Dig project. In 2010, he was one of five national finalists in the Washington Post’s “Great American Pundit” opinion-writing Competition.
His first book, New England Notebook: One Reporter, Six States, Uncommon Stories, was released in May, 2013 by Globe-Pequot Press. The book recounts many of Ted’s favorite people and stories from his travels all around New England. National Geographic Traveler named it one of its “Best Picks,” and the book is now in its second-printing. In April, 2016, Globe Pequot Press released Ted’s second book, Wicked Pissed: New England’s Most Famous Feuds.
Ted is a native of Winthrop, Massachusetts, and lives in Holliston with his wife and two daughters.

State House Update-Summer 2017

by Representative Carolyn Dykema

Dear Neighbor, Happy summer! I hope you are making the most of the warm weather and long days here in the 8th Middlesex District. Here in the State House, we have worked to finalize a fiscally stable FY18 state budget, continue to hold hearings for the 4,000+ bills that have been filed this session including major healthcare reforms, and are working to engage stakeholders on critical issues like climate impacts and immigration. This session I am the primary sponsor of 35 bills on issues ranging from veterans' preference in hiring to teen texting and driving. Two of my environmental priorities this session include H.2113, An Act to protect Massachusetts pollinators and H.2115, An Act relative to drought management. More information about all of the bills I've filed can be found on the legislative website. If you have questions about any of this legislation, I'd welcome the chance to discuss them. Input from you is essential to the work I do to represent you at the State House. Please stay in touch. Warmly, Carolyn Dykema
