02:12AM / Tuesday, April 09, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The main house at 976 Notch Road offers sweeping views across the valley. It's the star of the 120 acres Foster Goodrich and his team are hoping to turn into a glamping facility at the foot of Mount Greylock.    Goodrich and development partner Keenan Chenail led the Planning Board through a site visit on the private property Monday to give members a visual of what they're trying to accomplish. Because Goodrich does not yet own the property, only the board and two members of the press were allowed on the tour.    The plans for the development had come under fire from neighbors who raised concerns over traffic on the narrow mountain

Be Alert for Wildlife on the Road
02:49PM / Monday, April 08, 2019
BOSTON – The state Departments of Transportation and of Fisheries and Wildlife are reminding motorists to be cautious and alert for wildlife crossing or alongside roadways during this time of year. Motorists are advised to slow down and avoid swerving if they encounter wildlife in the vicinity of roadways.   Springtime is breeding and nesting season for many kinds of wildlife, which means they are more active as they search for mates and disperse across the landscape. Common species seen near roadsides include beaver, muskrat and turkeys. In addition, on the first warm, rainy evenings of April, frogs, salamanders and toads will cross roadways as they head toward wetlands to

@theMarket: Markets on a Tear
By Bill Schmick,
04:22PM / Friday, April 05, 2019
As fearful as investors were back in December, the greedier they have become in April. Investor sentiment is climbing, interest rates are falling, and the Fed is on hold. All we need to push the markets even higher is a trade deal with China. It's coming.   The S&P 500 Index has tacked on a hundred points in nine days. The all-time record highs for that index is at 1,940 less than 50 points away. That index has been up seven days in a row. The Dow up 6 out of 7. Last week's worry, the inverted yield curve, which occupied everyone's attention, is a barely remembered footnote in buyers rush to own stocks.   Of course, there are warning signs sprouting up throughout

Rodgers watches as a student learns hands on about Leonardo Da Vinci machines. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Museum is a place you can grow up in, according to Jeff Rodgers.   Rodgers is the new executive director of the museum and started his new gig on Monday. He comes in the wake of a controversial period of the 116-year-old museum's history when museum officials sold off nearly two dozen pieces of its collection to raise $53 million. The sale of the art spurred significant backlash and tore a rift in the community.   For Rodgers, that's in the past. As his first week comes to an end, his goal is to build the inter-disciplinary experience at the
