Captain American (Chris Evans) finds truth, justice and the American Way has changed since WWII as he and Black Widow (Scarlett Johannson) find themselves at odds with the TPTB.

Much care is taken by directors Anthony and Joe Russo to make "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" everything fans of the Marvel Comics franchise might desire. Yet The Great Unwashed will be hard put to distinguish it from the mass of blockbuster adventure yarns splashing their special-effects laden agitations across the silver screen this time of year.

Fourteen years.

Doesn't sound like much but in the virtual world it's pretty significant.

We're only 9 years younger than the World Wide Web. And we're among the oldest, if not the oldest, hyperlocal news site not attached to any other media, print or otherwise.

The St. Joe Crusaders are looking to join with the Drury Blue Devils.

"We had such a small team this year that it caused a lot of injuries.   "If we can co-op even for one year, to grow a little bit ... we

A sign at last year's pancake breakfast to raise money for JDRF educates visitors on what people with Type 1 diabetes must do simply to eat breakfast.

WEST STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Do you know how many carbohydrates there are in half a cup of maple syrup?

Kristi Farina of West Stockbridge knows there are 50 grams. Plus she knows there are 15 grams per pancake, though that number varies widely based on the size and thickness of the pancake.

She has known since 2001, when her son Dawson, then only 2 years old, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes.

She now knows the "carb counts" of pretty much every food Dawson has ever eaten and knows how to try to balance those carbs with

This week the eighth largest U.S. banks were told they need to increase capital by about $68 billion. In some ways it is too little, too late in the government's efforts to prevent another financial meltdown. Nonetheless, the regulations do provide an increased level of safety for taxpayers.

"Too big to fail" is a term that makes most of us grind our teeth. It was taxpayers, after all, who were required to pay trillions of dollars to rescue our financial sector after the 2008-2009 financial crisis precipitated by our largest banks.

A section of Route 8 is being repaired after several years of sinking.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Hopefully, a section of River Road will no longer have that sinking feeling.

James Moulton, superintendent of the project, said work to stabilize the roadway will include excavating both lanes of Route 8, laying down a heavy-duty landscaping fabric, topping it with gravel and then paving.

He estimated the total time for the project would be about two weeks.

The far edge of the southbound lane for a couple hundred feet along the North
