Massachusetts also largely supports Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination in 2016.
Bay Staters like Hillary Clinton and support same-sex marriage, but nothing compares to their love of Red Sox Manager John Farrell. The Sox manager received the lowest disapproval percentage in Public Policy Polling history – even better than Abraham Lincoln, Mother Teresa and Santa Claus. What a difference a year makes for the Sox. The team’s hot start has 27 percent of those who took the survey predicting a World Series. Only 3 percent said the Sox will not make the playoffs. Sixty-four percent of those surveyed said Farrell is doing a good job. Only 1 percent disapproved of Farrell’s work this year. This is the lowest disapproval rating Public Policy Polling has ever seen. In comparison, in a national poll in November, Lincoln was …

In this column, you ask questions, and Patch finds the answers.
The big topic on everyone's mind these days is Lord's Department Store, the iconic downtown store is closing next month after 73 years in business. We know how the closing will affect adults, but one Patch reader said it will also affect children, and asked, "What about Santa? "Not sure if any other Medfield moms are wondering but, what about Santa?...For as long as we've lived here, we've taken our children to see Santa on the first Friday in December. I have all the old Polaroids dated, and I treasure them and the experience itself. My kids labor over their Christmas lists which they go over with Santa in as much detail as they can on that evening! The man in the suit may have changed over the years but Santa's backdrop and the "throne…

Santa Claus makes his annual visit to Lord's Department Store.
Santa didn't disappoint! As busy as Santa is this time of year, he was still able to travel from the North Pole to Medfield and spend some time at Lord's Department Store. He was seen talking with the children, taking some Christmas lists and having his photo taken with those that believe...both young and old. While Santa was posing for photos, many locals shopped at Lord's annual "Midnight Madness" sale. Medfield's "social event of the year" was a huge success and while shoppers were enjoying shopping for discounted items, Santa could be seen flying back to the North Pole. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

Columnist still believes in Santa Claus despite no big screen TV.
Dear Santa, How have you been? I hope this letter finds both you and Mrs. Claus in good health. I've been meaning to write you my list for this year, but I've been kinda of busy with this Patch thing. Anyway, for the last 20 years or so, I've asked for a big-screen TV, and I'm still waiting. I know I haven't always been good. Just the other day, a nice police officer pulled me over because I forgot to put my registration sticker on my license plate. It was due in July. Procrastination is a problem. I'm not exactly neat around the house. I have this bad habit of making a mess in the kitchen when I cook breakfast. I know my wife has spoken to you about this on more than one occasion. In fact, I think it has been one of her Christmas wishes. …
