MCLA Assistant Athletics Director Dot Houston holds one of the certificates presented to her by interim President Cynthia Brown for her efforts on national girls sports day.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Usually the chanting from the stands is for the team or a popular player.

On Saturday afternoon in the Amsler Campus Center, it was for the woman who's spent 25 years encouraging kids to "play like a girl."

"Dot Houston, Dot Houston," sang out more than a dozen young girls who'd spent the morning at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' National Girls and Women in Sports Day celebration. The adults and students around them soon chimed in.

Non-farm payroll employment increased by 257,000 jobs in January and the gains for the preceding two months were revised upward as well. Even better news was hourly wages that jumped 0.5 percent in January to $24.75 after declining in December. That's the biggest gain in six years and bodes well for the economy overall.

Wall Street has been debating just how fast or slow the U.S. economy is growing for months now. The faster the growth, the more likely the Fed will raise interest rates. Why is this so important?

One school of thought says interest rate hikes are "bad" for the stock market. In times past, when rates rose the stock market has sold off, sometimes a lot, other

Popcorn Column

  Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain spend 'A Most Violent Year' navigating the dangerous 1980s oil-delivery industry.

I take unusual pride in having very little business acumen, doubtless a result of my semi-hippy past and perhaps the reason this review of director J.C. Chandor's "A Most Violent Year" isn't being written on my yacht docked at some fairy tale atoll in the South Pacific.

But such is not the case with Abel Morales, a rising star in the highly competitive but very lucrative oil delivery business in New York City, circa 1981. If he can navigate

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — State tax refunds are being delayed as the Department of Revenue investigates reports of fraudulent returns through the popular TurboTax service.

Some 19 states are looking into potential tax fraud being perpetrated through the Intuit Inc. tax preparation software by individuals using identity theft to file for refunds.

"Our first concern is the protection of Massachusetts taxpayers' personal information," said DOR Commissioner Amy Pitter in a statement. "We want to be sure that the tax refunds currently in the pipeline are being sent to the legitimate taxpayer. We have temporarily stopped issuing refunds in order to further scrutinize the

Today, more than 7 million Americans are no longer limping. Instead, they are trotting around with the assistance of artificial knees, hips or both. Every year another million of us will join the crowd, and that number is expected to grow as America ages.

Arthritis is the main reason for these surgeries, followed by obesity, which adds stress to the knees and hips. Everywhere you turn, Americans are told that they must lose weight. However, in order to do that, a less than virtuous circle has evolved for many of us. We are all striving to eat healthier and eat less while exercising more. As such, wherever you look, aging amateur athletes vie with the young on the ski slopes, the
