Father accused of breaking infant son's ribs

COHOES – A seven month old baby is being treated for broken ribs at Albany Medical Center.

Police say it was his father who caused the injury.

Christopher Barnes, 26, is accused of squeezing the baby’s chest because he wouldn’t stop crying.

Someone noticed the baby looked underweight and tipped off Child Protective Services.

An X-ray led to the discovery of the broken ribs.

Barnes was sent to jail on $25,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday.

BOSTON (AP) — Unfinished business. Defiance. Hope, strength and resilience. They used different words but the meaning was the same for thousands of people who were stopped by twin bombings at last year's Boston Marathon and came back this year to finish what they started.

The 118th running of the storied race from Hopkinton to Boston was run under the long and still-sharp shadow of the 117th, which turned tragic when two bombs exploded near the finish line, killing three people, injuring more than 260 and searing the day into a city with a long memory. On this marathon Monday, there was no choice but to remember, reflect and even confront the past, but the athletes found it easier — and more fun — to celebrate.

Jeff Glasbrenner said he returned to Boston for some "unfinished business" after being forced to stop at mile 25.9 last year following the bombing.

National Grid promises lower bills in April

National Grid is promising electricity customers some relief in their next bill.

The utility company says April bills should drop by about 40 percent.

However, there will be an added charge on your may bill, reflecting last month's record cold.

The good news, the company says that charge will be lower than the one you saw in March.

In many cases, customers have seen their bills double since January.

National Grid has blamed the increases on the cold weather, which it says, pushed up demand and in turn, pushed up rates.
