The new business brings a taste of Italy to North Andover.
Got a craving for a gelato or a panini? You're in luck. Pazzo Gelato opened at 99 Turnpike St. in the Eaglewood Plaza this weekend. Owner Jim Demotses and his wife Karen of North Andover said they hope to bring a taste of Italy to town. They serve dozens of flavors of gelato -- from basics such as strawberry or cookies and cream to exotics like coco hazelnut and banana -- made with milk, not cream, so the treats have fewer calories than ice cream. They also serve fresh paninis and espresso. Pazzo Gelato is open Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Results from a recent executive survey ranked Massachusetts 47th for business.
A CEO magazine ranks Massachusetts as one of the worst states in the nation for business. Chief Executive Magazine ranked Massachusetts 47th based on a survey of corporate leaders. Survey respondents reported the Bay State is one of the worst for taxation and regulation. The state Republican Party is pointing to the survey and saying that Gov. Deval Patrick and the Democratic-led Legislature are bad for the economy and business. What do you think about Massachusetts’ business climate? Is this a good state in which to do business?
