I promised you a column of summer family fun. First I'm going to start with theater, not only because there is so much family theater in a Berkshire summer but also because I live with a little actress who likes nothing more than being on stage.

One of our favorites is Shakespeare & Company's Rose Footprint productions, outdoor theater under the big round tent, where the audience sits in lawn chairs and the actors run around and through the audience and interact with them. This year, the production is "The Servant of Two Masters," billed on S&Co's website as "a comical blend of the Italian classic Commedia dell’arte and contemporary performance

The newly opened Pawnal Pets offers suites for dogs and cats. POWNAL, Vt. — Lying around in the sun, sleeping 20 hours a day, chasing squirrels — for a dog, life can be pretty sweet.   Or, at Pawnal Pets, suite.   Ryan and Tammy Maturski opened the new pet care facility on Route 7 earlier this spring.   They bill Pawnal Pets as "Pet Boarding & More," but the boarding part alone is more than you might expect. It starts with those suites, which are what they call the 32-square-foot dog runs that go for $30 per night.   "Each one of the runs themselves, we went with nothing but the best quality," said Ryan Maturski, who built the

There is a growing national buzz among scientists and engineers over a driveway in Idaho. This green-hued stretch of hexagonal tiles of hardened glass in an Idaho suburb represents one prototype idea for revolutionizing the nation's highways. It could be a road to the future.

The concept of Scott Brusaw, a down-to-earth, electrical engineer who lives in a rural Idaho community, is to convert America's broken-down highway system into a nationwide network of solar panel highways. In doing so, this solar highway would generate three times the energy used in the U.S. each year while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 75 percent.

These new roadways would consist of three layers of

McCann graduated 103 students on Wednesday night. More photos can be found here.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — McCann Technical School on Wednesday night handed out diplomas to a "mature and knowledgable" graduating class of 2014.

But not so mature that they couldn't take a few moments to celebrate the end of their four-year journey with hoots, horns and the spangle of ribbon poppers in the Amsler Campus Center at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

The class had much to celebrate, said Principal Justin Kratz. They had met deadlines, teamed together to get projects done and developed a strong work ethic that will do them well in the future.

Businesses in Williamstown, particularly the hospitality industry, hope the reopening of the Clark Art Institute will re-energize their bottom lines.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Clark Art Institute is all about the art — its exhibition, its preservation and its study.

But there is no denying that the South Street institution also is a major force in the North County economy.

The museum traditionally has drawn 200,000 visitors per year, and it conservatively estimates its expanded and renovated campus will draw 10 to 20 percent more viewers.

That is welcome news to Williamstown area merchants — especially those who have noticed a drop in visitors the last two summers, when
