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.

  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

Milazzo had approached Town Administrator Carl McKinney about changing the permit for his gravel operation and McKinney asked him about the roadway during conversations.

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.
