as a local rubber manufacturer. in the mid-1960's and italian shoemaker was looking to team up with a u.s. partner to produce a rugged and dependable soul. they stepped up to the challenge. last year, the two companies became one. >> we are a performance niche brand. doug: they are produced rubber soles for industrial and outdoor markets and the u.s. military is priority one. they provide the soles for every soldier, sailor and airmen's footwear. they say the company is also serious about innovation. take, for example, their brand-new bottoms.

special interests that oppose question 2 claim district schools lose money to charter schools. that's "absurd," says the boston herald.
