TOP STORIES

KENNEDY SNAPSHOTS

It’s an expansive and quintessentially Kennedy photo album. Here’s a young, shirtless JFK, baring sixpack abs and smirking poolside while striking an un-presidential pose. There’s Rose Fitzgerald not-yet-Kennedy in her Sunday best, long before she’d become the family matriarch and trade girlhood grins for imperious stares. Here’s Kathleen Kennedy, awkwardly twisting upside down in a skirt to kiss Ireland’s Blarney Stone. There’s little Teddy Kennedy on the playground, sporting skinned knees. The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has completed an 18-month project to catalog and digitize more than 1,700 vintage family snapshots, and they’re now all viewable online — a photographic fix that’s sure to feed the nation’s continuing obsession with “Camelot.” By William J. Kole. SENT: 550 words, photos.

IN BRIEF

— UNIVERSITY EMPLOYEE QUESTIONED: A longtime employee of the University of Massachusetts Amherst says plainclothes officers came to his office to question him after someone called police to report an “agitated black male” on campus. SENT.

— DECK COLLAPSE: Boston fire officials say four people were injured when a deck collapsed over the weekend. SENT.

SPORTS

PATRIOTS-JAGUARS FOLO

Tom Brady trudged off the field with his helmet in one hand, grass stains on his jersey and a look of frustration on his face. This was a different feeling for the New England Patriots quarterback — at least against Jacksonville. Brady lost for the first time in nine starts against the Jaguars, a 31-20 setback Sunday in which Blake Bortles outshined the three-time league MVP and five-time Super Bowl champion. SENT: 820 words.
