Letter: Henny Penny in Williamstown Over Marijuana Cultivation
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Saturday, June 05, 2021

To the Editor:

Let's continue to allow outdoor marijuana cultivation in Williamstown. Vote no on a planned amendment that would ban outdoor growing. And vote yes on article 29 at the June 8 town meeting. The proposed zoning bylaw would continue to allow — but further restrict — legal cultivation. If we want to know what the impacts might be we can look back over the last four years. There has been one proposed outdoor grow operation that faced stiff opposition and legal challenges and went elsewhere. Up to two acres of cultivation has been legal in Williamstown since 2017.

I am not arguing whether marijuana is good or bad, but we're seeing a strange hypocrisy from

@theMarket: A Churn at the Top
By Bill Schmick,
04:39PM / Friday, June 04, 2021
It was a sleepy week in the markets for the major averages. Stocks flirted with the old highs, only to fall back by the end of the week. Energy and a few meme stocks occupied most of the attention.   Crude oil spiked higher, nearing almost $70 a barrel (bbl.), pulling energy stocks along with it. Energy traders were heartened by the latest OPEC meeting. The cartel expects demand to outstrip supply by more than a million barrels a day for the foreseeable future. As a result, the members intend to gradually increase production as the global economy gathers steam. Most analysts expect oil to breach $70/bbl. before taking a break.   Certain stocks such as AMC and GameStop, which have

Williamstown July 4 Parade Returns This Summer
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:56AM / Friday, June 04, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The head of the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce is as surprised as anyone that the organization will once more hold one of its signature events in a little more than a month.   But on Wednesday morning, Sue Briggs announced that the town's Hometown Parade is on for 11 a.m. on July 4.   "If you had asked me this three or four weeks ago, the answer was: There's absolutely no way," Briggs said. "But as soon as the governor made that decision to reopen the economy, and as soon as some of our events, like Williams' Senior Celebration, had a good reception and it was clear that people were anxious to get out, it seemed like the

The Retired Investor: The Movies Return
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Thursday, June 03, 2021
The Memorial Day weekend launched the unofficial beginning of the summer season. Movie theater owners are holding their breath in hopes that consumers, once vaccinated, may start to return to the cinema. Is it a false hope?   Much has been written about the demise of the movie theater, even before the world was ravaged by the novel coronavirus pandemic. Sky-high prices for tickets and the exorbitant costs of concessionary items like $8 bottles of water, and $15 baskets of popcorn had made the movie-going experience almost as costly as a rock concert.   At the same time, consumers were being offered the choice of sitting at home, while watching a steady and increasing

Planning Board members Chris Winters and Stephanie Boyd participate in a forum on Willinet with Debby Dane, right.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Once upon a time, there was a company called Massflora that wanted to grow marijuana on a Blair Road property.   It needed a special permit from the Zoning Board of Appeals to do so, and the application drew passionate opposition from residents near the property who worried about the plan's visual impact, the potential for drawing thieves who might grow violent and the noxious odor produced by the flowering cannabis plants Massflora planned to start indoors and transplant to a field.   Eventually, Massflora withdrew its

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:40PM / Monday, May 31, 2021

Class Speaker Papa Freduah A. Anderson spoke to his classmates about the obligation that comes with privilege. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — For members of Williams College's class of 2021, Monday was a day to celebrate the grit and hard work that got them through the last four years.   But their class speaker reminded them it also was about something else: the privilege that got them to Williams in the first place.   "I, for example, have been privileged to have parents who could afford to take me to private junior high school in Ghana, which then enabled me to attend all the best high schools in the country, where I learned about the opportunity to attend college

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:03AM / Monday, May 31, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Berkshire Regional Planning Commission is asking residents and businesses for ideas about how to help downtown recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.   On Wednesday, the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce hosted a virtual forum to discuss the work BRPC has been conducting under a grant from the commonwealth's Local Rapid Recovery Plan program.   "The grant does not include funding for implementation," BRPC's Philip Arnold explained.
