3) Lovely end to the week
According to the National Weather Service, our lovely fall weather will continue today in Woburn! Expect sunshine and temperatures in the high-70s. There will be a light wind in the afternoon and a possible chance of showers at night. Sunshine is also forecasted for both Saturday and Sunday.
4) In case you missed it
It was announced Thursday that one of the four Americans killed in Libya this week was Glen Doherty, a Winchester native whose mother lives in Woburn. Doherty's family spoke briefly yesterday. Read about it here.
5) Clapton song hits #1
On this day in 1974, Eric Clapton's hit "I Shot the Sheriff" was named number one on the Billboard charts. The song was not the first single about crime to be a hit. "Stagger Lee," about the theft of a Stetson hat that leads to murder, has been recorded by many popular artists, and a song was also written about the assassination of President William McKinley ("White House Blues").
