To the editor:   I read with interest the iBerkshires,com report of the July 24th meeting of the Williamstown Conservation Commission.  Guess I march to a different drummer than several in the audience who urged developing  the Lowry and Burbank properties!  Here's why:   How many open spaces are left in town that are not privately owned, that could replace the Lowry and Burbank properties as open space and agricultural conservation land? Don't tell me the Spruces is one of them, because that property could never ever replace Burbank and Lowry.  The Spruces property lies along busy Route 2, has many large culverts buried underneath it, and long years of

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Annie and Jay (Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel) fear  their home movie may become a viral hit in 'Sex Tape.'

Jake Kasdan's "Sex Tape" accomplishes a curious thing. It's the near surreptitious merging of traditional romantic farce with the new screwball raunchiness that's body-snatched the American film comedy in recent years. While the prim and proper are sure to be abashed by the complications engendered when a thirtysomething couple's tape of their marathon lovemaking goes viral, the jaded may be wont to wonder: When did such risqué behavior

Overland has come back from last year's biking tour tragedy stronger and with more focus on proactive safety. The parents of Merritt Levitan, who was killed in the accident, are raising awareness of distracted driving.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A year ago this month on a rural road in Arkansas, a driver struck and killed 18-year-old Merritt Levitan as she participated in a cross-country bicycle trip with the Williamstown-based Overland summer program.

It was the kind of senseless tragedy that could devastate a family ... or a business.

Instead, it galvanized both.

Determined to carry on the spirit of their daughter's life, Merritt's parents created a charitable foundation
