Rumors are flying that a buyer has emerged for Waubeeka Golf Links.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — There may be good news for one of North County's public golf courses, and a bogie for another.

There are rumors that a deep-pocketed local connection to Williamstown is interested in acquiring Waubeeka Golf Links.

"There has been a lot of activity but nothing definite," said Alan Marden of Alton & Westall  Agency, which is handling the listing for owners James and Jody Goff. "We're hopeful, but it's not a good time to be selling a golf course."

However, a source close to the negotiations says a formal offer has been made for the 18-hole course in an

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
TriStar Pictures 'Pompeii' features plenty of effects, romance and lava.

Director Paul W.S. Anderson's "Pompeii," incorporating a fictitious love story within the hypothesized depiction of the volcanic decimation now synonymous with the ancient title city, is neither as bad as I feared, nor as good as I had hoped. File it under typical violence and special effects fodder for the Saturday night crowd.

Then again, how many disaster flicks open with a quote from Pliny the Younger, acknowledged eyewitness to the horror, who wrote, "In the darkness some prayed for help,

Real estate practice varies considerably from state to state. Anyone who has moved from another state and purchased in this region understands this.

Besides those "roles" as we will call them, some states in our region have also adopted or are actively considering adopting designated agency, limited agency, and broker agency. As a practicing licensed broker in Massachusetts, Vermont and New York, I have had to adapt myself and my practice to differences in all three states. For the purposes of this column I will primarily focus on real estate practices within Massachusetts and Berkshire County specifically.

Suzannne Bump is advocating for oversight money be coupled with the funding for any state program.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Auditor Suzanne Bump says accountability isn't owning up to mistakes, but rather stopping mistakes before they happen.

The Great Barrington resident spoke at the Berkshire Chamber of Commerce's Good New Business Salute on Wednesday morning when she advocated for more oversight of government programs.

Bump says "if you can't afford the oversight, you can't afford the program."

"In my view, it is these kinds of offenses against the public trust more than the occasional story of the ego-driven few in government that truly demoralizes
