WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Conservation Commission is close to producing documents that it hopes will add clarity to the status of some of the lands under its control.   The commission this summer has been addressing the lingering controversy surrounding the Lowry and Burbank properties, which last year were discussed as possible locations for replacement senior housing for the Spruces Mobile Home Park.   Although that debate stalled when the Board of Selectmen withdrew a formal request to the commission to consider releasing the parcels for development, their status is still a point of contention — and not a new one.   "The history of Lowry in particular and

Katie Barbeau is taking up farming on South Church Street in North Adams. Barbeau is also one of the first to receive a Friends of Animals scholarship toward her studies as a veterinarian technician.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A local mother and daughter are taking a natural approach to farming on their recently purchased farm.

Jen and Katie Barbeau pull into their five-acre farm at 1360 South Church St. every morning at 5:30 to start a long, laborious, yet satisfying, day at Mountain Girl Farm.

Between milking the goats, tending the chickens and wrangling the ducks, every day is a new challenge for the new farmers who have had to improvise every step of the way.

ADAMS, Mass. — As important as Susan B. Anthony was to the Suffrage movement, the contribution of Anthony — and women like her — to Abolitionism sometimes goes overlooked.

Not at Susan B. Anthony's birthplace. Not on Saturday.   Northampton historian Steve Strimer at will give a talk titled "The Underground Railroad of Massachusetts" at the Anthony Birthplace & Museum on East Road.   While Strimer will share insights about the secret network of safe houses that helped quietly liberate tens of thousands of African-Americans, he also will talk about two New England women who very loudly and publicly advanced the cause of

Well, it's still summer, but the feeling of fall is in the air ... both in Mother Nature and in the stores, where aisles are lined with colorful signs of school.

I personally could not be more thrilled with the weather. A day of blue skies, 70-degree temperatures and a light breeze is perfect, in my eyes. Heat and humidity? Who needs it!

That said, I do hope Saturday, Aug. 16, will be slightly warmer, as I will be spending the day at Sand Springs Pool in Williamstown, the first half of the day with a Girl Scout gathering and the second part of the day for a birthday party. if summer does reappear and you're looking for a fun way to cool off, do consider Sand Springs.

Meanwhile, the state continues to build outdoor recreational areas and conserve more land.   On Thursday, state Department of Conservation Chief Fire Warden David Celino delivered some $7,000 in grants to five rural volunteer fire departments to help protect those who will be

  Colin Firth and Emma Stone plumb the mysteries and cheats of love in Woody Allen's latest tricky romance.

It is an annual cinema treat Woody Allen fans anticipate with gleeful curiosity. First rocking our funny bones with "Take the Money and Run" (1969), like Old Faithful the director has knocked them out like sausages.

Approaching octogenarian status, with "Magic in the Moonlight" he again sets us to categorizing. Is it full genius funny, whimsically philosophical, filled with metaphors alluding to his controversial relationships, or just generously witty and

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — All summer, Al Giorgi is the face of basketball in the Steeple City as commissioner of the outdoor basketball league named for his father.   In the winter, Al Giorgi shows his passion for the game in a lower profile way that just might have a higher impact on area basketball courts.   "I'm about teaching the kids how to play the game before teaching them different plays and sets," he said.

The culverts and berm being installed on the Spruces property is to alleviate flooding on the other side of Route 2, not in the mobile home park. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The state Department of Transportation project under way on the Spruces Mobile Home Park property is going to provide flooding relief for the neighborhood across the road, but it will do nothing to solve the problems at the park itself.   Erik Bilik of MassDOT has discussed the project at Town Hall meetings on a couple of occasions dating back to last September, but some residents may have been confused when they saw contractors installing 3-foot culverts and digging a long trench or swale through the
