Cable costs coming up: Cable subscribers will shell out a little more to watch their favorite programs in March.
Time Warner Cable has announced a price increase of 2.6 percent beginning in March. The increase for cable services is attributed to higher programming fees from the networks, and Time Warner customers aren't alone -- Dish and DirecTV subscribers also are feeling a similar pinch.

Monitor shipmates to be buried at last: For 150 years, the two Yankee sailors lay entombed in the turret of the USS Monitor, doomed shipmates aboard the sunken Civil War vessel 40 fathoms down and 16 miles off Cape Hatteras.
Their remains were recovered when the turret, literally constructed with a piece of North Adams, was brought to the surface in an amazing feat of marine archaeology and engineering in 2002.
Next month, after a decade of trying to learn their identities, the Navy plans to bury the comrades as unidentified in Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors.
Among the pieces of armor covering the USS Monitor's turret were iron plates hewn from pig iron smelted at the North Adams Iron Co. and mined from two locations in the city.
