10:57AM / Monday, May 09, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire Neighbors program of the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition held its Spring Neighborlies Community Recognition Award Ceremony at Congregation Beth Israel on May 4.

Friends, family and many supporters gathered to honor and congratulate individuals and groups in the Northern Berkshire communities whose acts of kindness and volunteer efforts have made a significant difference in the lives of their neighbors and the community.

"One of the most wonderful things about living in Northern Berkshire is that we recognize the importance of saying thank you. We say thank you for small acts of kindness, as well as large feats of bravery. And

Economic Growth a Topic in Williamstown's Three-Way Planning Board Race
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
11:23PM / Sunday, May 08, 2016

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The three candidates for a two-year seat on the Planning Board agree that the town needs economic growth, but they have different ideas on how to achieve it.

Anne Hogeland, Chris Kapiloff and Bruce MacDonald participated in a forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters on April 13. It was the second time the three discussed the issues together in front of an audience in advance of the town election on Tuesday.

Unlike the first meeting, the candidates did not take on the Waubeeka Overlay District head on, but there were still plenty of contrasts to be drawn from the forum, telecast on the town's community access station, WilliNet.

Hogeland told the

Williamstown Selectmen Candidates Talk Economic Development
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
11:20PM / Saturday, May 07, 2016

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Economic growth, community preservation and cows were among the topics when the three candidates for two spots on the Board of Selectmen participated in a forum sponsored by the town's chapter of the League of Women Voters.

Incumbent Jane Patton sat down with Jeffrey Thomas and Cynthia Payne to tell voters about their qualifications and priorities as the town prepares to go to the polls on Tuesday, May 10.

Not surprisingly, economic development, which consumed much of the town's public discourse the last couple of years, was a focus of the hourlong forum telecast on the town's community access television station, WillINet.

Letter: Water Protection and Size at Waubeeka
Letters to the Editor,
10:45PM / Saturday, May 07, 2016

To the Editor:

If one only reads previous articles about the Waubeeka proposal to build a "country inn" just south of the Five Corners Historic District in Williamstown, you would think that there is a grand conspiracy to stifle development and thwart business growth by a selfish group of abuttors and tree-hugging conservationists. The devil is in the details.

Trust in a future unknown developer is a tricky thing. The applicant has already violated permits of both the Williamstown Conservation Commission and the Sign Commission. Not a good public relations tactic so far. "Trust but verify" means that the Planning Board is wise to place reasonable limits on the great

Letter: Sarah Gardner for Planning Board
Letters to the Editor,
10:32PM / Saturday, May 07, 2016

To the Editor:

I urge Williamstown voters to support Sarah Gardner for the Planning Board in Tuesday's election.

Sarah has devoted countless hours to revitalizing Williamstown's central business districts, through projects like the Cable Mills apartments and the rezoning of the Photech site. She has also worked tirelessly to protect the farms and open spaces that make Williamstown the kind of place people want to live in and visit.

Sarah comes to the post with a long record of public service to the town, and with the ideal training and experience. Not only does she teach planning at Williams College, she has served on the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission, the Williamstown

Letter: Support Dan Caplinger for School Committee
Letters to the Editor,
10:25PM / Saturday, May 07, 2016

To the Editor:

As a former member of the Williamstown School Committee, I'd like to say that Dan Caplinger is an invaluable asset to the School Committee. Though Dan and I often differed as far as our personal policy preferences, I can say for certain that Dan always treated conflicting ideas with courtesy, respect, and thoughtful reflection. Without a doubt, Dan contributed more time to School Committee work than any other member (myself included).

It is vital for the School Committee to have a critical mass of "institutional memory." If Dan is not re-elected, the committee will have four of five members with one year or less experience. In the last year and a half alone,

Letter: Support Hogeland for Planning Board
Letters to the Editor,
10:19PM / Saturday, May 07, 2016

To the Editor:

Anne Hogeland is running for the two-year seat on the Williamstown Planning Board.

Anne will bring a cool head and a kind heart to that deeply divided board. Her continuing contributions to many organizations in town, her educational background and her work experience make her an exceptional candidate. She is already well-versed in planning issues. Her presence on the board will make a positive difference.

On Tuesday, please vote for Anne Hogeland for the two-year term on Planning Board.

Letter: Support Sarah Gardner for Planning Board
Letters to the Editor,
10:04PM / Saturday, May 07, 2016

To the Editor:

Without reservation, I support Sarah Gardner for the five-year term on the embattled Williamstown Planning Board.

Although Sarah has been much maligned in some circles for her stance on the Mike Deep/Waubeeka Zoning change, those of us who have actually attended Planning Board meetings and the hearing (and/or watched the meetings or the hearing on WilliNet) know that the negative comments about Sarah are not based on fact. In addition, she has been the victim of very negative and blatantly biased news coverage, especially from The Berkshire Eagle.

Please, voters, cast your vote Tuesday based on reason and fact. Sarah's planning credentials are exceptional. She is

Letter: Caplinger for Williamstown School Committee
Letters to the Editor,
10:00PM / Saturday, May 07, 2016

To the Editor:

I am pleased to endorse Dan Caplinger for the Williamstown Elementary School Committee.

I had the privilege of working with Dan on the WES committee for several years. I was consistently impressed with Dan's dedication to children, understanding of the budget, and willingness to do all the hard work this position requires.

Dan has devoted untold hours over the past several years to understanding how the WES school district works. His financial background gives him keen insight into the budget and into possible future questions including regionalization. He has worked on several contract negotiating subcommittees as well as the regionalization subcommittee.

Last year,
