Tyngsboro is a safe place these days…unless you work in a pizza parlor with a maniac boss.

BOSTON — The former operator of a popular Tyngsboro pizza restaurant, who was sentenced to four years in state prison in 2012 for beating an employee he believed stole thousands of dollars from him, will argue that his conviction should be overturned.

In court documents filed with the state Appeals Court, Eric Sideri, former operator of Angela’s Coal Fired Pizza on Middlesex Road, claims the trial judge erred by not allowing jury to consider a lesser included offense to the assault-and-battery charge.

You know who doesn’t beat up employees for stealing money made from the sale of mediocre pizza? If you said either Destiny, Cherry, Anastasia, or Candy…you’re a 1000% correct. Sure there was the occasional locker room dust-up when Cherry occasionally hijacked one of Candy’s regulars, but they kept that in-house. No injuries, no Lowell Sun, and the show went on. Don’t run away from who you are Tyngsboro! Boobs, Bridges, and RollerSkating.

Things are not looking good for the Tyng.

BOSTON (AP) — State health officials have confirmed a case of mosquito-borne Eastern equine encephalitis in a horse in Tyngsborough, the third case in a horse this year.

The health department said Wednesday it is raising the mosquito threat level to ‘‘critical’’ in the north central Massachusetts community. Nearby Chelmsford, Dracut, Dunstable, Groton, Lowell, and Westford have been raised to ‘‘moderate’’ risk.

Ha! And you thought getting rid of all the strippers was the ticket to a disease free Tyngsboro. Well, the joke is on you. Call me nostalgic, but I liked Tyngsboro a lot better when it was all about boobs and roller skating. Ever since they turned the place over to new construction and horse hunting mosquitos, it hasn’t been the same.
