Attorney Sydney Smithers, right, explains Berkshire Arts & Technology's building needs to the Zoning Board on Tuesday.

ADAMS, Mass. – The Zoning Board of Appeals approved a variance Tuesday night from a zoning bylaw for construction of an addition to the Berkshire Arts & Technology Charter Public School.

Unfortunately, BArT’s groundbreaking for the expansion has been put on hold.

I've been reading recently of the very significant volume of residential purchasing being done by hedge funds and investors in general and, while we live in a democratic capitalist society, it troubles me.

What's worse is that the hedge-fund buying is

For this reason, it is important that you understand the implications of each option.

Some employers offer the opportunity to maintain your retirement account at your
