The representative speaks about some of actions on Beacon Hill and later took questions.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — North County's new representative said he's still getting used to the slow pace of state government.    State Rep.

Coming in halfway through the session, he

By Bill Schmick,
04:59PM / Friday, May 04, 2018
You would think an unemployment rate that hit 3.9 percent in April would have cheered the market. It was, after all, the lowest such rate in 18 years. But no, all eyes were focused on the first round of China/U.S. trade talks, which conclude today.   The American team includes Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and two, hardline China hawks: Robert Lighthizer, our trade rep, and the administration's trade and manufacturing adviser, Peter Navarro. U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin heads the team that is trying, according to the President 's tweet, "trying to negotiate a level playing field."   What we would like to see from the Chinese is a commitment to increase

04:24PM / Friday, May 04, 2018
President Re: "Avengers: Infinity War" Marvel Studios 500 S. Buena Vista Street Burbank, CA   Dear Sir or Madame,   I have a bone to pick. Well, actually, many bones. While I certainly appreciate the obvious effort your studio has put into the here referenced "Avengers: Infinity Wars," I cannot help but feel that your megamillion-dollar, superhero extravaganza is discriminatory against filmgoers not inculcated in the Marvel Comics Universe. Admittedly, being of a certain age, my comic hero fealty lies with "Superman" and, to a lesser degree, "Batman."    Oh, there was that time in my early teens when I had a dalliance with
