What’s in the news?

- A Massachusetts court issued an arrest warrant Monday for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as prosecutors sought to preserve their right to try him on state charges in the killing of a police officer for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Tsarnaev, 20, remains in custody after pleading not guilty to 30 federal charges stemming from the April 15 explosions, which killed three people and injured more than 260.

- Three firms competing to operate the state's first and only slots parlor made pitches Monday to the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, with each touting their respective locations as superior to the others. Cordish Cos., Penn National Gaming and Raynham Park made formal presentations to the five-member panel that expects to award the slots-only license in late December or early January.

- Former President Jimmy Carter says the economy has become so bad that some of today's middle class resemble the poor when he was president 30 years ago. Carter says even in the wealthiest parts of the world there are a number of foreclosures, and in the U.S. the disparity between the rich and poor has increased dramatically.

- WASHINGTON (AP) — The back and forth between Democrats and Republicans over the partial government shutdown hasn't changed. President Barack Obama continues to demand that Republicans remove changes to the health care law from any emergency spending bill. And House Speaker John Boehner insists that changing health care and curbing deficits are key to ending the shutdown.

- Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling — whose video game company collapsed into bankruptcy last year, prompting a high-profile lawsuit in Rhode Island — is selling off furniture, sports collectibles and even artificial plants from his Massachusetts home.

Events for today:

- Once upon a time in 1956 Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and Jerry Lee Lewis got together to jam. The Tony Award-winning musical "Million Dollar Quartet," opening tonight at the Citi Emerson Colonial Theatre, tells the story.

- Every band has its process. For Atlas Genius, it was building a studio by day and playing cover songs by night so they could record original material on their own terms. The 2011 release of the song "Trojans" took off, and so did the band. They play at the House of Blues.

- He's a singer, songwriter, guitarist, BBC Radio Scotland host, and a member of the Order of the British Empire. Scottish traditional folk musician Archie Fisher performs at Club Passim.
