Despite Lack of Evidence, Rodney Reed Faces Execution on November 20

Aidan O’Sullivan, 2022

Convicted in 1998 for the 1996 rape and murder of Stacey Stites, Rodney Reed is set to recieve his death penalty on November 20 in Texas. Stites was found dead in April 1996 with clothing missing and marks on her neck indicating that she had been strangled with a leather belt, pieces of which were found nearby. The assailant was left unidentified until 1998, when investigators matched the DNA of Reed to the DNA found in Stites’s body on a hunch. No other evidence was found. When questioned about it, Reed admitted to an affair with the victim, explaining his DNA found on Stacey’s body. In the years since the conviction, the evidence of Stites and Reed’s relationship has become more and more proveable; witnesses, including some from Stites’s family, have testified about the truth of her consensual relationship with Reed, but Reed remains on death row. Reed has mantained his innocence throughout his conviction and imprisonment. Read more →

After an 8-0 Start to The Season, Patriots Fail Their First Test in Baltimore

Aidan O’Sullivan, 2022

After eight lopsided games, the Patriots were right where everyone expected them to be: 8-0, with few signs of slowing down. It wasn’t the usual faces leading them to their perfect start, however. Before a week 9 beatdown in Baltimore, Tom Brady found himself fifth in passing yards and tenth in total touchdowns for quarterbacks, behind the likes of Matt Ryan, Jameis Winston, and his former mentee, Jacoby Brissett. He had been acceptable, but his start has been underwhelming by his standards. Read more →

Somerville High Ultimate is back and looking for new members!

MLB Comes Full Circle as Second Generation Prospects Debut

Aidan O’Sullivan, 2022

Within a few feet of each other, three nameplates in the Toronto Blue Jays locker room don the names of Biggio, Bichette, and Guerrero. To an older fan, these names would bring back memories of Craig Biggio’s career 1998 season, Dante Bichette hitting the first ever Rockies home run in their inaugural season, or Vladimir Guerrero hitting .378 in his final postseason. But the three lockers belong to the sons of the former stars of the 90s, as Cavan Biggio, Bo Bichette, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. look to lead the Blue Jays into relevancy. Read more →
