HAVERHILL — A 20-year-old documented gang member and his teenage girlfriend were ordered held without bail on charges they pulled up alongside another car on Portland Street on Sunday and shot the 20-year-old male driver, sending him to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

James Clive Alfred Harvey

James Clive Alfred Harvey

A Walla Walla, Washington, man was arrested Saturday after allegedly causing disturbances at downtown businesses and then fighting with police.

Just after 4:15 p.m., Astoria police responded to reports of a man who had thrown produce around at the Astoria Co-op grocery store, stole a cellphone from owners of the Mai Tong Thai food cart across the street and poured hot sauce on a black Cadillac Escalade nearby. A witness also told police that the man had shattered a piece of glass in the area.

When officers arrived, they located James Clive Alfred Harvey, 35. He allegedly struggled for several minutes as officers attempted to arrest him.

During the tussle, two Astoria police officers used a stun gun to try to subdue Harvey, listed

New and Future Cars for 2018 and Beyond

In 2016 the car-making industry saw its seventh consecutive year of record sales in the U.S. with 17.55 million purchases in all. So far in 2017 the numbers seem to have finally plateaued, with analysts forecasting a final total closer to 17 million—still not too shabby. Various social, political, and economic factors are driving the slight decline, but don’t blame it on a lack of interesting, exciting, and appealing new vehicles designed to grab our attention. Indeed, the following is filled with more than 100 cars, crossovers, SUVs, and trucks that are either on sale now or will be within a few years. Even so, this lineup is not exhaustive in terms of everything coming down the pipe. It is composed of the top 100-plus machines that pique our interest as the automotive world continues to change on a seemingly daily basis. Although there might come a day when,

2017 Cadillac XT5 Review

DANA POINT, California — The latest fashion in resort wear is the Cadillac XT5, a crossover that turns every drive into a tour of Tuscany. Or, you know, California.

So when you burst through the lobby doors and come out beneath the big roof of the hotel’s porte cochére, you’ll always be happy to find a Cadillac XT5 waiting for you. Why not, since everyone else seems pretty pleased to see it, too? This isn’t the usual German-brand crossover, and you’re not the usual sullen, self-important person that you meet too often at fancy resorts like this. The hotel staff turns toward you expectantly, since you’re clearly a little different from everyone else.

Of course, the other reason the valet and bell staff seem happy to see you is because they know the process of loading up the XT5 with family and bags and vacation stuff

Ugly delicacy? Industry touts weird looking monkfish

 

Now serving sea monsters.

That’s the message from members of the fishing industry, environmentalists and regulators who are trying to persuade U.S. consumers to eat more of a particularly weird-looking creature from the deep — monkfish.

Gloucester’s mayor, Sefatia Romeo Theken, will be doing her part on March 12, serving monkfish during a a invite-only fresh seafood demonstration and tasting during the Seafood Expo North America in Boston.

Monkfish have been commercially fished for years, but recent analyses by the federal government show the monster-like bottom dweller can withstand more fishing pressure. However, U.S. fishermen often fall short of their quota for the fish.

A lack of reliable markets for the fish and convoluted fishing regulations make it difficult to catch the full quota, fishermen said. Nevertheless, the U.S. government is upping harvesters’ limits for monkfish for the next three years.

Some New England fishermen switched to targeting monkfish in recent decades when traditional species such

Next Cadillac SRX to Be Built in Former Saturn Factory

The Spring Hill, Tennessee, factory that once built Saturn vehicles will host the next-generation Cadillac SRX. General Motors confirmed today that it will shift production of the SRX from Ramos Arizpe, Mexico, to Tennessee when the next generation of the luxury crossover debuts.

The announcement is part of a $185 million investment to build GM’s new generation of three- and four-cylinder Ecotec engines at Spring Hill. The engines, which range from 1.0 to 1.5 liters in displacement and 75 hp to 165 hp, will eventually be used in 27 GM vehicles by the 2017 model year. The move will add 390 jobs at Spring Hill.

GM announced last year that its Spring Hill factory would build two “future midsize vehicles.” It’s believed those will be the Cadillac SRX and an as-yet unrevealed Buick crossover. Both models could
