Japan is an island nation surrounded by countries who have expressed hostile intent in one form or another over recent years. It is also faced with turning around an economy that until recently was mired in a decades-long malaise. The launching of the Izumo, a 19,500-ton aircraft carrier, last week may be Japan's answer to both problems.

Japan boasts the third-largest economy on Earth and yet it is one of the few remaining countries that has no standing army, navy or air force. War, as a means of settling international disputes, is outlawed under Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution written into law (under U.S. insistence) on May 3, 1947. However, Japan (under U.S. occupation at

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) depends on the kindness of strangers — sister Ginger (Sally Hawkins) — in Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine.'

In Woody Allen's "Blue Jasmine," Cate Blanchett is a dazzling amalgam of all those wonderfully complex, troubled women that authors like Tennessee Williams, Ibsen and Chekhov introduced you to in high school English. But while there is a little Nora here and a touch of Hedda Gabler there, for the most part Jasmine is the 21st century rendering of Blanche DuBois, portrayed with the skill and discomfiting vulnerability

Is summer over? It somehow feels like it, even in mid-August: You should have seen the jeans and jackets at the annual North Adams Downtown Celebration on Wednesday! I'm not convinced summer is over quite enough to take the air conditioner out of the window, but I did see a red leaf on the ground the other day.

The other way we know fall is around the corner, of course, is the thought of going back to school. Or, for our region's 5-year-olds, going to school for the first time. This week, there are two events geared toward those boys and girls who will be starting their school careers this fall.

First, on Friday, Aug. 16, the Family Resource Center is hosting its annual "I

The Affordable Housing Trust is considering soliciting for land it could purchase for housing. Chairman Stanley Parese, left, said the trust should put out a request for proposals.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The attorney general's office has found one town board in violation of Open Meeting Law but cleared another of any wrongdoing.

Both complaints were lodged by Ken Swiatek and related to deliberations around the application for a federal grant to purchase and close the Spruces Mobile Home Park and the possibility of using the Lowry and Burbank properties off Stratton Road for affordable housing in response to the closure. Swiatek has been an outspoken opponent of the plan and founded Friends of Williamstown Conservation Lands to lobby against it.

The attorney general's office found that the Affordable Housing Committee had violated Open Meeting when
