Troopers from all over New England want to help local drivers stay safe and prevent crashes during the holiday season.
The holidays are upon us, and many residents will be traveling this week to see family and friends all across New England. State Police are doing their part to help ensure these visits don't end in tragedy because of impaired or distracted driving. The Massachusetts State Police joined forces with other New England State Police divisions at headquarters in Framingham to explain their Combined Accident Reduction Effort (C.A.R.E) program. Increased patrols this week will be cracking down on impaired/drunk driving, texting while driving and seatbelt law violations, among other things.

It’s that time of year to extend our hearts out to others.
It’s that time of year again. You know, that time when most people extend their hearts out in some shape or form to others. Whether it is through gifts or acts of kindness, this time of year seems to open people’s hearts. And the awesome thing about the holidays is the way everyone feels: It doesn’t matter if you do the giving or receiving, caring always feels good. This year I have a challenge for you. If you are fairly handy or have ambitions to be handy, I challenge you to make gifts rather than buy them. I think we can all agree that there is something indescribable about putting your own sweat (and sometimes blood) into a gift for someone. I have been making gifts for family and friends since I can remember. And my parents still have …

Check out the latest "Moms Talk Q & A" column to see what our Moms Council had to say on this subject.
How Does Your Family Celebrate Thanksgiving? From Christa Ciccia: I always remember Thanksgiving being a really big deal around my house. My mother would spend all week preparing. She would clean the good China, take up the extra chairs and folding tables. She would spend hours baking and cleaning. Now I do it. And I love it. I enjoy staying home and having the family over to enjoy a day of thanks together. Unlike my mom when she hosted Thanksgiving, I get lots of help. My kids help bake and make veggies with me, and my husband helps with set up and cleans up. My in-laws bring desserts and veggies too, and my mom helps me clean and dress the turkey. Now that is something to be thankful for. From Danica LC: Holiday celebrations for me have …
