As we prepare to kick off a new week, let's take a look back at the week that was. The Star Club, a local Beatles tribute band, has got a ticket to ride, straight to the 36th annual International Beatlesweek Festival in Liverpool. Meanwhile, sports betting might be bringing new life to Raynham, while condos could be on the way in Taunton. We also dive into Taunton’s history and present with Then and Now. Get caught up with what you might have missed.
