It’s no secret the New England Revolution have been looking to develop a soccer-specific stadium for several years now and move out of Foxborough's Gillette Stadium.
On Monday, The Boston Globe reported one of the potential destinations for the Major League Soccer team could be Revere.

As King Philip Middle School recently learned, just because there was an incident outside of school does not mean it has an effect inside of school.
After being informed by parents of an incident outside of school, KP Middle School Principal Susan Gilson wasted little time making sure the particular act in question had little chance being reenacted in the halls of the regional middle school.
The incident in question involved is called rhinoing. To rhino someone means to run up to someone from behind and drive your knee into their lower back. The performing of the act in the KP community is so recent that it was unknown by staff of KPMS.
“We didn’t even know rhino-ing existed so we were actually happy that one of our parents sent us an email,” Gilson said. “What it did was it enabled us to kinda make it public within our building and create and awareness in terms of what it was.”
