Conservation Commission Chairman Philip McKnight makes a point during Thursday's meeting.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Conservation Commission on Thursday decided to hold public hearings later this summer to try to settle the issue of whether two town-owned sites in its control fall under Article 97 of the Massachusetts Constitution.

The parcels in question are known as the Lowry Property and Burbank Property.   Each is currently being farmed under use agreements signed by the Con Comm, but each also looked at in the last two years as possible places to develop affordable housing.   Conservation advocates and abutters to the properties advocated strongly

Over the next decade roughly 75 million Americans will retire. While most of us are well-aware of the need to plan, save and invest for that momentous moment, very few of us are actually prepared for the non-financial challenges of retirement itself.

Recently, as a result of one local company’s early retirement incentive plan, as well as the bankruptcy of a local hospital, I have had some firsthand experience in dealing with the expectations of retiring clients in this area. What I have found is that the majority of men are ill-prepared for retirement, more so than women. At the same time, their spouses are extremely worried — with good reason.

Studies show that men have a much

This week the stock market was actually down three days in a row. It caught many investors off guard, but by the end of the week, traders were expecting the dip buyers to arrive. They did not disappoint.

As we approach the first days of summer, the stock market appears to be becoming more, rather than less, volatile.  The VIX, the volatility index, actually jumped a bit from its record lows as turmoil in Iraq and a subsequent spike in oil prices spooked the markets.

Earlier in the week, the World Bank also cut their economic forecast for 2014 global growth from 3.2% to 2.8%. And here in America, the election defeat of Eric Cantor in the Virginia Republican Primaries provided

The Clark's three-tiered reflecting pool, while not yet fully operational, did hold rain water earlier this week.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — For six decades, the Clark Art Institute has brought you art in nature.

This summer, the Clark brings nature into a work of art.

The centerpiece of the Clark Art Institute's newly remastered campus is a three-tiered reflecting pool designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Tadao Ando to accent his new visitor and exhibition center.

The 13.5-inch deep pool does more than just beautify the campus and reflect the beauty of Ando's art. It also is part of a hydrological system that lessens the Clark's impact on the

Disney's "The Little Mermaid" came out when I was around 16 years ago. I very clearly recall rolling my eyes in typical teenage fashion when my mother asked if I wanted to watch it. Watch a Disney movie? That was so for babies.

But I watched it anyway ... and fell in love with everything Disney. Within a few years I had amassed a collection of Disney VHS videos, videos that I still have, videos that are the reason I might be one of the two people left in Massachusetts with a couple VCRs still in my house, videos that I could not wait to show my own daughter. "The Jungle Book." "The Fox and the Hound." "Aladdin."

Magical.

This blog will cover the basic home-purchasing process, start to finish, in very simple terms but don't be fooled. Purchasing a home requires your time and attention, care, diligence, thoroughness, seeking out the best professionals to work with and proper preparation. The basic steps are laid out below but be sure to consult with a professional working on your behalf and ask questions, plenty of questions all along the way.

Think carefully about your options.

Typically this is the rent vs. own analysis. Consider your other obligations, the time it can take to properly care for a home of your own vs. letting the landlord do all the work. Review your basic finances and whether owning
