WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Waubeeka Golf Links should have a new owner Friday.

Michael Deep of North Adams confirmed on Tuesday that he has signed a purchase-and-sales agreement for the 18-hole golf course.

Several local names had surfaced as interested buyers in the last few weeks as the deadline loomed for whether the course would open this spring. Deep said he had been interested but backed off when another potential buyer began serious talks with owners James and Jody Goff so as not to

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Local business leaders posed their concerns — from raising the minimum wage to energy costs to funding for cultural institutions — to Gov. Deval Patrick on Tuesday at a roundtable forum at the Country Club of Pittsfield.

The governor kept his own remarks short at the joint meeting of the Berkshire and Massachusetts business roundtables so as to hear the concerns of Berkshire businesses.

The gathering is one way the business community can help align public policy, according to Michael Daly, CEO of Berkshire Bank and chairman of the Berkshire Business Roundtable.

"I think we all as

Popcorn Column

Universal Pictures Liam Neeson is a beleaguered air marshal stuck on a non-stop flight full of action-movie cliches.

Just in case coffee, assorted world crises and the increasingly callous behavior of obnoxious fellow motorists aren't making you nervous enough, director Jaume Collet-Sera has concocted "Non-Stop." Fraught with tension and some of your worst apprehensions realized, it offers folks an entertaining rationale not to relinquish their fear of flying.

Starring at the center of this taut high-wire act, Liam Neeson is Bill Marks, a beleaguered air marshal whose personal

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It's Pittsfield's premier outdoor art studio, though few have laid eyes on it. 

Just out of view on private property, its existence and location are all but unknown to most locals, yet artists from cities around the Northeast routinely visit to exhibit new works. Tucked away behind a longtime local business, invisible from the road and all but a few out-of-the-way vantage points, several thousand square feet of walls clustered against a hillside have for years functioned quietly as a kind of semi-exclusive, self-regulated coop
