The 27-year-old knew exactly what he was looking for: Someone with a laid-back personality, someone who shared his values, someone he could talk to.
So in a dusky restaurant murmuring with soft rock and soft chatter, Sean Musselman of Somerville came searching for that special connection.
Orbiting around candlelit tables-for-two, he and several other young men and women sat down with potential matches; they laughed and conversed, asked each other about their backgrounds and interests, shook hands, exchanged business cards — then, after a few minutes, moved down a seat to the next prospect.

In the last five years, Melrose emergency room doctor Steven Sbardella said he’s seen two trends in the type of patients who are treated for alcohol poisoning at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital: they’re significantly younger, and they’re willing to take greater risks with their health.
“It used to be where we would see people who are in their 30s and 40s coming in who were intoxicated,” Sbardella said last week, “and now we’re seeing people who are 15, 16, 17, and that’s happening more frequently. The numbers aren’t outrageous yet, but there’s evidence that it’s more frequent.”

Twenty minutes before 5 p.m. on Sunday, volunteers for the third annual Hallmark Health Stride for Health Sunset Walk around Lake Quannapowitt were worried they would have to cancel their event due to heavy rain and lightning. Luckily, just as the walk was scheduled to start, the rain stopped and blue sky was visible.
As soon as the rain stopped, walkers supporting the Hallmark Health Cardiac and Endovascular Center began to arrive at the Lower Common on Lake Quannapowitt. Hallmark Health had set up tents for registration and refreshments for the walkers and volunteers. There was also a magician and animal balloonist to entertain supporters while they prepared for the walk to begin.
