Get thee to a parade!

So it might rain a little. Who cares? It's Independence Day and it's un-American not to watch a parade. Your choices in the Berkshires: Pittsfield's amazing extravaganza at 10 a.m., a longer parade that marches up South Street, Bank Row, Park Place, North Street and Wahconah Street, or Williamstown's lovely little local affair at 11 a.m. on Southworth, Main and Spring streets (followed by the free community barbecue on the grounds of the Clark Art Institute, reopening Friday with a whole new look). 

Then there's the fun at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, featuring music, a community barbecue and the annual Reading of the Declaration

The old Clark meets the new Clark at the intersection of Tadao Ando's Clark Center, foreground, and the 1955 'white building.' WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The physical expansion of the Clark Art Institute makes its public debut on Friday.   But it is only the next step in a philosophical expansion that began six years ago.   The Clark built its reputation on the works by old masters and Impressionists that drew the eye of founders Sterling and Francine Clark.   But at the turn of the 21st century, the Clark began implementing a master plan that envisioned a place at the museum for works from the 20th century and beyond.   "Our future was already

I sit alone finally writing about a subject that I have remained silent about due to my profession and what potentially may be a perception that not everyone agrees with. That being said, I expect criticism, I expect to be called an idiot or told that I don't know what I am talking about. I assume that many will believe it is impossible or that it will never work or that I am just living a fantasy.

Regardless of anyone's response, please know now that if this writing sparks a thought, an action or creates a new circumstance for someone to better themselves, well than my words were not completely presented in vain.

My parents raised me to practically find the good in any

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Jenny Slate plays Donna Stern, a woman on a difficult, if sometimes comical, path to adulthood.

While coming of age stories are a dime a dozen in Filmdom, they rarely deal with the transition so astutely delineated in Gillian Robespierre's "Obvious Child." Here, instead of the cliched albeit touching saga of an adolescent boy learning a big lesson as he  evolves into a teenager, is the unsentimental — but also touching — reality of a twentysomething Miss making the journey into adulthood.

Played by Jenny Slate, she is Donna Stern, a witty, smart and

Three area men have created a smart phone app to deter distracted driving. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Friday is about freedom.   And with freedom comes responsibility.   But when tens of millions of Americans hit the road this Fourth of July weekend, it is a fair bet that hundreds of thousands of them will not be as responsible as they should while behind the wheel of a car.   We've all seen examples of it. Hugh Daley certainly has.   "I drove back from Boston yesterday ... and I literally drove by this guy," Daley said, leaning back in his chair and putting his foot up a conference table while mimicking the act of driving with one hand on the wheel

David Smith's sculptures are on display this summer at the Clark Art Institute in an exhibit called 'Raw Color.'

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — This summer's David Smith show at the Clark Art Institute explores how the 20th century sculptor brought color to sculpture.

It also shows how he brought practical skills to the art world.   "While we were installing these pieces, one of the riggers who was putting them down said, 'It's nice to actually work with these big sculptures that a real welder put together,' " Clark curator David Breslin said. "You're always afraid of having something happen when you're installing art.

I've never seen two-dozen young children sit so quietly for 45 minutes.

That's one takeaway from the magical show "Bleu!" that Noelle and I went to see at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, where it is playing for this weekend only.

"Bleu!" is presented by the Italian theater company Compagnia TPO, whose website bills itself as "interactive theater for children." At the opening show on Wednesday, July 2, it was indeed theater in that it clearly told a story. But unlike the theatrical stories most children are used to hearing, this one was told through music and movement, not words.

"Bleu!" narrates the meeting of two characters: a sailor and

If a seller places their property for sale on the market they absolutely want to sell.

Right?

Maybe.

Hiring a realtor, putting out the "for sale" sign, placing a "multiple listing service" entry, requesting that the agent do serious advertising and expecting the agent to schedule open houses all are part of placing a home on the market.   

Right?

Absolutely.

All of the above activities indicate the owner wants to sell the property. Now comes the Catch 22.  The seller "must" have a certain price for their property. The individual reasons for selling a property are as diverse as the number of fish in the sea. A few of the more common reasons

Independence Day will be celebrated Friday, July 4. It is a federal holiday marking the ratification of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.

Representatives from 13 original colonies, of which Massachusetts was a leader, actually voted on July 2 at the Second Continental Congress to declare their independence from Great Britain. The Declaration formalizing the decision — and giving the reasons for doing so — was
