    Nation's economic growth leaves some areas behindBy Liz Sidoti Associated Press Unemployment rates in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virgiria are higher than the national average. Kentucky - 6.3 percent Ohio - 5.8 percent Indiana - 5.7 percent West Virginia - 5.4 percent FALMOUTH, Ky. - Used boots fetch $3 and old salt-and-pepper shakers bring in a buck at a makeshift flea market along U.S. 27, presumably not what President Bush and Republicans have in mind when they herald a vibrant economy. Times are "very good for the rich and very, very bad for the poor" who "can't afford to...

    City trying to turn table on police Eyeing pickets, contributions in PR offensive By Andrea Estes, Globe Staff July 17, 2004 City officials, scrambling to salvage the Democratic convention's opening festivities, launched a public relations offensive against Boston's police union yesterday in its intensifying battle over a new police contract.

Now 17 days late, the budget has been stalled over differences between Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature's Democratic majority on three key issues, including a 2002 law that largely prohibits schools from hiring private companies to operate district bus systems and perform groundskeeping and janitorial duties. They're also at odds over a...

Now utilities are rushing to fix the problems — blamed largely on work crews tearing up the streets — and to reassure the public.
