Monday's Wall Street sit-in by a few hundred radicals would lead us to believe that Wall Street is responsible for the present changes in the world's climate. Maybe so, but remember this, what Wall Street has done, it can also undo.

Readers know that I am no apologist for big business, the financial community or Wall Street. As for climate change, I am clearly on the side of those 300,000-plus people who participated in the People's Climate March on Sunday. The earth is in jeopardy today thanks to carbon emissions generated by fossil fuels.

The simplistic approach, preferred by this "Flood Wall Street" crowd, condemns Corporate America, Capitalism in general, and

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
A funeral brings the Altmans home for seven days of predictable squabbling and extreme oversharing.

Tolstoy begins his "Anna Karenina" with, "All happy families are alike; each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." Thus, consciously or not, director Shawn Levy's "This is Where I Leave You" finds occasion to seriocomically affirm the maxim via a soap-opera-ish examination of the Altman family following the death of its patriarch.

You know the routine: The kids, now grownups and suffering one personal dissatisfaction or another, gather at the old manse to

The School Committee is implementing a series of transportation regulations. LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — How far should a student walk to get to school or a bus stop? That is the question the Elementary School Committee is trying to answer.   Currently, the school doesn't have a policy in place, leaving Principal Ellen Boshe to make the decision on a case-by-case basis.   "Right now my position is that, on a case by case since they are similar, I haven't been saying the bus will pick up your children," Boshe said on Wednesday.   The School Committee pulled state statutes as a guide but members said they don't agree with the distances suggested.

HANCOCK, Mass. — October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and Ioka Valley Farm is partnering with Spookley the Square Pumpkin to raise awareness for bullying prevention.

Ioka Valley Farm will be featuring Spookley in farm-based events for school group visits throughout October to help its younger visitors understand the importance of being tolerant and kind.  

Spookley was first introduced to millions of children in the book "The Legend of Spookley the Square Pumpkin," in which he is shunned by all of the round pumpkins until a mighty storm threatens to destroy the entire pumpkin patch and only Spookley, with his unique shape, can save the day.  This fall

Mary Merselis opened a crafters and artisan gallery on Water Street. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mary Merselis does not figure to get rich operating her new store on Water Street.   But she does want to provide a venue to promote the rich variety of local artisans and crafters producing unique works throughout Williamstown and beyond.   "Our point in running this business was not to make it profitable to us but to make it profitable for people to sell things," she explained during a break from setup earlier this month.   "If we can cover our costs ... that would be fine. Right now, the people who sell here get a lot of their profit back. We'll see how

We're heading into the first weekend of fall, and it looks to be a gorgeous one. So this week I'm keeping all of my suggestions ones you can do outdoors. Because winter and cabin fever won't be too far behind.

There are two free events that run both Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 27 and 28, that are good choices for kids of all ages.

First in Williamstown is a local celebration of National Alpaca Farm Days at Sweet Brook Farm on Oblong Road (in south Williamstown, to be exact). From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days, the public can meet and learn about alpacas and the beautiful fiber they provide during shearing each year.The Green Mountain Spinners and Weavers and the Stephentown, N.Y.,

The Williamstown Motel hopes to add a second story to the wing on the right. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Two Main Street businesses are planning major expansions that last Thursday were approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals.   The Williamstown Motel and Chopsticks restaurant both were before the ZBA with plans to build additions on their properties.   At a marathon meeting that was dominated by discussions of a proposed new development on North Street, the board OK'd the alterations to the Main Street businesses after making a modification to one of the two plans.   Williamstown Motel owner Ashwan Malhorta wanted the town's permission to build a second-story
