    Sunday | SouthCoastToday.com

    The Port Society of New Bedford has ended its partnership with the fledgling Fishing Heritage Center just months after it was announced.  Late last year the two parties announced the Heritage Center would be located in the Mariners' Home, which is about to undergo a restoration. Part of the Heritage Center was to be in the Seamen's Bethel, which will be connected to the Mariners' Home by a glass corridor.  The project is the recipient of a conditional $440,000 Massachusetts Cultural Council facilities grant, which requires matching funds from the Port Society.  Fred Toomey, president of the Port Society, described what appears to be a mutual misunderstanding of what was to be done with the Heritage Center.

    Dec 23, 2012 | American Reporter

    In the overall mechanics of transformative government, attitude is so important! Not just a simplistic "can do" confidence but the simple belief that government might - holy cow! - actually solve or take the lead in solving or confronting a major problem. Many GOP leaders or presidential candidates boasted during the primary campaign about how, on being elected, they would eliminate government departments left and right.
