AN ASSOCIATE of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez said he was told Hernandez fired the shots that resulted in the death of a semipro football player, according to documents filed in Florida. The records, obtained by the Associated Press, also show that a vehicle wanted in a double killing in Boston a year before had been rented in Hernandez's name. Together, the revelations provide the most damning evidence yet against the 23-year-old star athlete. Hernandez has been charged in the June killing of Boston semipro athlete Odin Lloyd.

If a bunch of young, upstart environmentally conscious entrepreneurs were going to make the struggling Chester County borough of Modena their home base, then the name had to reflect their place and purpose. So Jim Bricker, Rob Mastrippolito, and Brendan Steer relocated Waste Oil Recyclers, their vegetable-oil fuel conversion business, and then renamed the industrial park they later purchased. Out of Modena came MoGreena. The tiny borough, about a third of a square mile with 585 residents, is now a hub for several like-minded businesses whose goal is to live with less.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. - New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested yesterday and charged with murder in the shooting death of a friend prosecutors say had angered the NFL player at a nightclub a few days earlier by talking to the wrong people. Hernandez, 23, was taken from his North Attleborough home in handcuffs just over a week after Boston semipro football player Odin Lloyd's bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park a mile away. Less than 2 hours after the arrest, the Patriots announced they had cut Hernandez, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection who signed a 5-year contract last summer worth $40 million.

Any time the military decides to close an installation, two things are sure: It will take a long time before the lights go out, and even longer for the site to find a new use. In Philadelphia, the former Navy Yard is being transformed into a business hub. In February, city officials celebrated that 10,000 jobs and 130 companies are now located there. It took more than a decade to get to that point after the Navy signed over 1,000 acres in 2001. Kansas encountered its own military conflict when a massive ammunition plant in Parsons was placed on the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC)

IT'S A MOONLESS Thursday night in North Wales, Montgomery County. Down a dead-end street just past the giant Merck & Co. pharmaceutical plant, tucked along the SEPTA R5 railroad tracks, a darkened industrial building attracts a young crowd. The unpaved parking lot is full, light sounds of live jazz seep from the rear door, and the air carries the familiar aroma of malt. Welcome to Prism Brewing's Tap Room, one of the region's best-kept beer-drinking secrets and, it turns out, a harbinger of a remarkable surge of suburban breweries.
