In his memoir “A Child’s Christmas in New England,” Robert Sullivan writes about growing up the Chelmsford-Lowell area during the 1950s and ’60s. Back then, as he describes it, the holiday season was a magical time of colored lights and train sets under the Christmas tree; trips into Boston to see the Enchanted Village at Jordan Marsh; bountiful amounts of sledding-perfect snow; and family gatherings that created lasting, evergreen memories.
Sullivan, 60, is managing editor of LIFE Books and lives in New York’s Westchester County with his wife and three teenage children. Thematically, his memoir pays homage to Dylan Thomas’s “A Child’s Christmas in Wales,” although, as Sullivan explained during a recent visit to Massachusetts, Thomas’s classic prose-poem was equally inspiring and intimidating.

Massey Energy Co., which is now doing business as Alpha Appalachia Holdings Inc., has agreed to a $265 million settlement of a class-action lawsuit that alleged that the coal mining company misled investors, including the state’s pension fund, the Massachusetts Treasury and the Attorney General’s office said Monday. The Massachusetts state pension fund served as lead plaintiff in a case brought by many investors. The size of the pension fund’s share of the settlement has yet to be determined. The defendant did not admit to any wrong-doing in the settlement. According to the lawsuit, Massey made misrepresentations about its safety record that artificially inflated its stock price. Said Alpha, “We concluded that the judicious course of action was to resolve this now so we could put it behind us.”
