WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Conservation Commission is close to producing documents that it hopes will add clarity to the status of some of the lands under its control.   The commission this summer has been addressing the lingering controversy surrounding the Lowry and Burbank properties, which last year were discussed as possible locations for replacement senior housing for the Spruces Mobile Home Park.   Although that debate stalled when the Board of Selectmen withdrew a formal request to the commission to consider releasing the parcels for development, their status is still a point of contention — and not a new one.   "The history of Lowry in particular and

Katie Barbeau is taking up farming on South Church Street in North Adams. Barbeau is also one of the first to receive a Friends of Animals scholarship toward her studies as a veterinarian technician.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A local mother and daughter are taking a natural approach to farming on their recently purchased farm.

Jen and Katie Barbeau pull into their five-acre farm at 1360 South Church St. every morning at 5:30 to start a long, laborious, yet satisfying, day at Mountain Girl Farm.

Between milking the goats, tending the chickens and wrangling the ducks, every day is a new challenge for the new farmers who have had to improvise every step of the way.

ADAMS, Mass. — As important as Susan B. Anthony was to the Suffrage movement, the contribution of Anthony — and women like her — to Abolitionism sometimes goes overlooked.

Not at Susan B. Anthony's birthplace. Not on Saturday.   Northampton historian Steve Strimer at will give a talk titled "The Underground Railroad of Massachusetts" at the Anthony Birthplace & Museum on East Road.   While Strimer will share insights about the secret network of safe houses that helped quietly liberate tens of thousands of African-Americans, he also will talk about two New England women who very loudly and publicly advanced the cause of

Well, it's still summer, but the feeling of fall is in the air ... both in Mother Nature and in the stores, where aisles are lined with colorful signs of school.

I personally could not be more thrilled with the weather. A day of blue skies, 70-degree temperatures and a light breeze is perfect, in my eyes. Heat and humidity? Who needs it!

That said, I do hope Saturday, Aug. 16, will be slightly warmer, as I will be spending the day at Sand Springs Pool in Williamstown, the first half of the day with a Girl Scout gathering and the second part of the day for a birthday party. if summer does reappear and you're looking for a fun way to cool off, do consider Sand Springs.
