City police went into the club- -that WAS called "Girls, Girls, Girls," at the time- -with a hidden camera in May to document exactly what was going in inside.

The number of jobless fell to four-point-one percent in August--it was four-point-three percent for the same period last year.
That's the lowest rate since 1989.
The commonwealth says the continuing improvement is the result of students leaving the job force to return to school and a boom in construction.
