Outgoing lieutenant governor said recent controversies had nothing to do with decision to resign.
Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Tim Murray said none of the controversies that have dogged him during his tenure on Beacon Hill contributed to his decision to announce his resignation.

The next day he will take over as president and CEO of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce where his salary will reportedly be around $200,000.

Send us your snowdog videos!
Nevermind the underwater diving dogs. Yeah, that's pretty awesome. But there are few things cuter than a snowdog in action. There are also few things cuter than a dog who doesn't like the snow that is attempting to do his or her "business" quickly and get back inside. Your pet is "wild" again, at one with nature, surviving the pile-up by leaping joyfully through it all. We want your video clips of dogs in the snow. Chances are, we won't find many felines who are enjoying the storm, but if so, we welcome those, too. Heck, if you've got a potbellied pig or a horse who is out in the snow, bring it on. Upload them right to this page by clicking the "Upload Photos and Videos" button!

"The question is if it that does happen, will it happen right away? Or at the next fiscal year? We don't know," he said. But he was confident that the investments that are currently being made in education and infrastructure will not only help the economy, but will also help future generations. "I thought to myself, 'Our grandparents gave us that.' Like Rte. 3 and I-95 or the street I came down to get here this morning; like the T and Logan Airport and UMass…
