Williamstown Planning Board Told to Cap Size of Cannabis Grows
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:27AM / Friday, January 15, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Planning Board on Tuesday agreed it likely can get a cannabis production bylaw to the Select Board by March 8 for inclusion on the annual town meeting warrant, but critics cautioned that the board's current path is unlikely to produce a proposal that meeting will pass.   The board reviewed the most up-to-date proposal for a bylaw amendment it has been considering formally since September and, in reality, for much longer than that. The board is hoping not to repeat last year's failed attempt to implement restrictions on pot production but still allow a pathway for growers via special permit.   The newest iteration limits indoor cannabis

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
09:33PM / Thursday, January 14, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Thursday decided to move forward with needed improvements to the middle-high school's athletic fields, but it removed both a track and a synthetic turf field from the project that will go out to bid this winter.   After hearing that the estimated cost of the project with the inclusion of an artificial turf field would be more than the committee is willing to spend, it voted 6-1 to order bid documents that just address Title IX and Americans with Disabilities Act deficiencies on the campus.   Primarily, that means bringing the softball fields up to the same level as the school's baseball fields

Healthy Eating on a Budget
08:48AM / Thursday, January 14, 2021
BENNINGTON, Vt. — Since COVID started, many of us have been trying to spend less money on food and make fewer trips to the grocery store. You can do both of these things and increase the healthy foods you eat, too. Use these simple tips to stretch your food budget, shop no more than weekly, and get healthy meals you and your family will love.   Cut back on dining out. According to Business Insider, at this time last year, the average American ate out 5.9 times per week. The average Vermonter spent $3,185 per year on dining out.  While both figures have likely decreased while we aim to reduce our COVID exposure, many families could still afford to decrease meals out.
