LENNY AT LARGE: Scott Sweatt stars in New Rep production of Steve Martin comedy

Posted Apr 19, 2009 @ 02:00 AM
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

Already into college but not yet out of high school.

Reeves: Women and Islam

Leggett: Release documents on torture

Posted Apr 19, 2009 @ 12:28 AM

I am a Vietnam era veteran, my Dad was in WWII and my uncle was a Marine at Iwo Jima, and none us volunteered to have the Constitution's guarantee against torture ignored by what has clearly been shown to be illegal and immoral acts authorized by our previous administration.

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!
