Last weekend Japan held "snap" elections, which gave Prime Minister Shinzo Abe the mandate to continue his pro-growth economic policies.  No one outside Japan seemed to care. The Nikkei stock market index fell 1.6 percent and traders moved on. That may prove to be a big mistake.

Granted, given the precipitous decline in the price of oil and the calamity it is causing in Russia (well-covered in last week's columns), investors may be forgiven for focusing on other more immediate concerns. Still, I believe that now that Abe has a clear mandate to continue his pro-reform, economic policies, Japan's prospects for next year have been elevated considerably. And don't

  The story of Exodus is by The Book, but played out with proper spectacle. All it needs is for Christian Bale to growl, 'I'm Moses.'

Filmgoers expecting some world-changing revelation from Ridley Scott's retelling of how Moses led the Israelites out of bondage will probably be disappointed by "Exodus: Gods and Kings."

Save for the usual dabs of poetic license that no iconic saga can escape when given the epic movie treatment, it is apparent that the director's chief impetuses are tradition and responsibility. As such, combined with the best special effects

Selectmen approved the tree warden removing the large tree that fell on town property for firewood.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The giant tree that fell down next to Town Hall will be turned into firewood.

The Selectmen on Wednesday agreed to a plan that would have the tree warden remove the tree and keep the wood.

On Wednesday night, Town Administrator Carl McKinney said the decision will save the town about $500. However, the town's attorney has advised that officials also file proper forms with the Ethics Commission, he said, because Tree Warden Ernest Dix is considered a town employee.

"Then we can get rid of it and not cost the town anything," McKinney said.
