1. U.S. Sen. Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) will stop by Johnny Jacks Restaurant this morning, along with Maine colleague Sen. Susan Collins, to collect an endorsement from the Milford Police union. Brown is expected to be at the restaurant from 10 to 11 a.m.
2. The Milford School Committee meets tonight at 7 at Milford High School. The agenda includes an update about the opening of school from the Brookside and Memorial School principals, and an update from the safety and security subcommittee.
3. A rash of car break-ins has been reported this week, particularly in the Plains area of Milford. Some owners reported the thief or thieves rifled through their glove boxes. Others said that change or GPS was taken.
