Gambling commission pick stirs controversy – L’Italien files papers for House seat rematch – Lantigua is at it again – Hey there, Groton!

GAMBLE: Stan McGee’s going to head up the Gambling Commission as interim director. Well, I don’t think I’m qualified to add anything to this one. Good luck with all that, I guess?

HIDDEN GEM: When you say “Groton,” we all think “Wild and scenic,” right?

L-TOWN: Lawrence Mayor Willie Lantigua replaces his parks foreman with, wait for it, his receptionist.

REMATCH: It looks like Barbara L’Italien is definitely taking on Rep. James Lyons for her old seat in the House. The best part of this story is the end where it says no one from Lawrence City Hall could return a phone call to tell the Eagle who has filed papers.
