WATERTOWN —

Scott Sweatt had hoped to play many roles as an actor. Pablo Picasso wasn't one that readily came to mind. Even more far-fetched was playing Picasso in a play written by Steve Martin. Yeah, THAT Steve Martin, the funny guy in the movies.

TREASURES IN YOUR ATTIC: Reofect painting has little value

Posted Apr 17, 2009 @ 02:00 AM

Q: These photos are of a painting or print that was originally given to my husband by his grandfather. On the back there is a label that reads, "Reofect Painting The Thanhardt-Burger Corp. La Porte, Ind." The artist is "Kaulbach." Any information would be appreciated because the picture is so dear to us. J. and J.D., Marco Island, Fla.

Wallace: 'Senior Spring' a time of change for students, parents

Posted Apr 19, 2009 @ 12:35 AM

FRAMINGHAM —

Tuesday morning, when I was working in my kitchen, the phone rang. I answered it and a young man's voice said Grandma. It sounded like my grandson (I am 87 and my hearing is diminishing.)

He said that he had been in an accident while he was driving a friend's car. He was in Canada and he was in jail!
