City says goodbye to White – Tisei hits Tierney on PACs – NH inches closer to their own casinos – Tennis time for Patrick – ML Trivia is happening

RAKING IT IN: Richard Tisei hits U.S. Rep. John Tierney hard on mean ol’ PAC contributions (Item) and out-fund raises him in the the last quarter of 2011 (Salem News). Tierney’s warchest is still more than twice the size of Tisei’s, but the money game is already beginning in D6.

RACKET: Gov. Deval Patrick shows some Worcester kids how it’s done on the courts – Milton Style. (T&G)

GAMBLING: New Hampshire moves closer to building their own casinos. How funny will it be when this casino in Salem, NH is operational before Mass. even decides how many it will build? (E. Trib)

TRIVIA TIME: As you may have heard, I’m hosting a special MassterList Trivia Challenge Feb. 16 at the Rattlesnake. RSVP NOW. And forget your typical pub trivia categories: this is going to be all about Massachusetts politics, history and news. It’s free and will be unfathomably fun. And, thanks to sponsor Liberty Square Group, there will be free food and prizes.Srsly.
