WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Tuesday's annual town meeting could finally put the rest a debate that has been simmering in town politics for two years.   Articles 32 and 33 on the meeting warrant are amendments to the town's zoning bylaws that would free up more residents to add dwelling units to their residential properties.   They are the product of months of discussion by the Planning Board, and they were the focus of last week's town election that saw the chair of that board voted out of office by one of the chief critics of Article 33.   The articles also have their roots in a contentious discussion that preceded last year's town meeting; in 2018, the

02:30PM / Saturday, May 18, 2019

More than 400 degrees and certificates were awarded.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — U.S. Rep. Richard Neal urged the new graduates of Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts to not only hear, but to listen and not to be afraid of encountering alternative opinions.   Rather, he said, determine the facts before forming an opinion because that will make your argument "more clear and more crisp."   "It helps me to gain a fresh perspective and new ideas and to hear both sides of arguments and leads to, I hope, a new perspective," he said.
