As the Patriots hurtle towards the American Football Conference championships this weekend, the Attorney General’s office is warning fans not to fall for ticket scams.

Residents will get a chance Tuesday to tell the state’s Public Utilities Commission how they feel about a proposed 24 percent rate hike from National Grid.  If approved, the rate hike would kick in on January 1st .
