Five Things You Need To Know Today, June 22
Family-friendly, free event planned for tonight.
Here are five things you need to know today:
1) The heat continues: We're heading into our third day over 90 degrees in Woburn! According to the National Weather Service, temperatures will reach 92 degrees today. We will probably have some thunder this afternoon and expect some heavy rains after nightfall.
3) Event Spotlight: Want to catch a movie at Library Park tonight? As if that wasn't cool enough, you can watch it for free! The Rec Department has teamed up with radio station WROR 105.7 FM for this fun event.
4) In Case You Missed It: The Woburn Police, using money from a newly-acquired grant specifically geared toward pedestrian safety, conducted an educational "sting" downtown Wednesday for drivers who did not stop for pedestrians in the crosswalk. Read all about the operation here and check out photos.
5) God scores a goal: On this day in 1986, Argentinian soccer player Diego Maradona scored two goals in the World Cup to lead Argentina past England and into the semi-finals. The first of Maradona's goals scored, though, appeared to go off his head. But was actually punched into the goal by Maradona's hand. Later, the soccer player said the goal was scored "a little with the head of Maradona and a little with the hand of God." Argentina won the World Cup championship that year.
