"I hear people say sportsmanship and fair play is what it's all about. Not in my household. It was all about the 'W,' the almighty win.   "We

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- The MCLA Trailblazers and Regis College Pride raised the curtain on the 2014 women's soccer season with a hard fought 1-1 draw Saturday afternoon at Shewcraft Field.

Regis tallied early in the first half, but MCLA rallied to score in the 81st minute.    Just five minutes into the contest, Regis found the back of the net when Joana Rosa corralled a loose ball at the top of the box. She turned and lofted a shot that beat Trailblazer keeper Katy Daly for an early 1-0 advantage. Neither team mounted much of an offensive for the remainder of the half.   The Trailblazers began to wear down Regis in the second half, creating multiple scoring opportunities

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 1. Memorial Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities. By some estimates, at least half the work force

The Selectmen are weighing proposals for Gates Avenue.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. – A Gates Avenue resident has raised concerns with Board of Selectmen over a preliminary proposal to reroute access over private property, a plan that seems to indicate approval of an expanded gravel operation.

Because of the compromised culvert at the beginning of dead-end Gates Avenue, the town is looking for alternative ways to access the area. The Department of Environment Protection is mandating an open-bottom culvert for some $200,000 that would require installation of a temporary bridge for $450,000.

Without a clear solution, Town Administrator Carl McKinney said on Wednesday, he would be open for any

At the beginning of the year, Wall Street was certain that interest rates were on their way up. Investors dumped all kinds of bonds anticipating that prices would plummet. Bond prices did the upset. Go figure.

The reversal caught just about everyone by surprise (including me). The thinking behind the bond call was straightforward. The Fed announced it was winding down its stimulus program. It also planned to begin raising interest rates sometime in 2015. Bond players, as they usually do, were expected to anticipate that move and begin to sell U.S. Treasury bonds this year. It all made total sense from an investment perspective. It was the end of a 30-year bull market in bonds so investors

NORWICH, Vt. - The MCLA men's soccer team Friday had five players tally second half goals as they powered their way past Green Mountain College, 5-0, in the Norwich Cadet Classic.   The game marked the season opener for both clubs.   Following a scoreless first half in which MCLA outshot GMC, 15-4, the Trailblazers wasted little time in finding the net in the closing half. Tyler Vona converted a rebound off a Mitchell Candelet shot just 1:36 into the second half to break the ice. The Trailblazers quickly added to the lead in the 49th minute when Anthony Basile knocked home a Dylan Pereira feed for a 2-0 edge as MCLA gained total control.   Kwadwo Kusi took a

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Eva Green is graphically nihilistic in the violently uncomical comic world of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'

Whether you call it beautifully ugly or repulsively beautiful, there's no denying that Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is fanatically violent. That's doubtlessly the intent.

While some of the cutting-edge ideas and eye-popping visuals surely impress the gray matter, after a while enough is too much. I like to think I've evolved far and away from any distant ancestors' appetite for the random mayhem

The nation's work force has experienced some traumatic events over the past five years. Between the financial crises, global competition and the slow pace of domestic economic growth, is it any wonder that employment in the U.S. is not what it should be? Yet the biggest challenge of all may be right around the corner as the Baby Boomers retire in droves.

From 1946 to 1964, there was a boom of baby making in this country. A total of 76 million Americans were born during those 19 years. Now those Americans are between the ages of 50 to 68 and are eyeing the prospect of retirement in the near future.

Think of it: Nearly one quarter of all Americans alive today will be leaving the labor
