The FCC, with help from cable company lobbyists, has proposed new rules that threaten to put PCTV out of business – and this could happen very soon.

Good Science at Work Inside Butterfly Magical Wings

The cocoon was spun higher than a man's reach, so I could not tell if it was really alive or empty. Just the find reassured me that Cecropia may be alive and well in this Berkshire wilderness.

Tobacco is the number one cause of preventable death and disease in Massachusetts.

'Bohemian Rhapsody': Fate, Free-Will and Rock 'n' Roll

All this self-indulgent perspective noted, I thank director Bryan Singer for jogging these memories into high-relief via his superb biographical film, "Bohemian Rhapsody," which astutely and soulfully details the birth of the group Queen and the star trajectory of its lead singer, Freddie Mercury.

There is no room on our campus for any kind of hateful rhetoric or action. As always, messages of hate and vitriolic actions against marginalized groups are not tolerated at MCLA. Our community is "Too Great to Hate."

Letter: Moran Much More Experienced for Register of Deeds

Debbie works not only within the Registry, but on a statewide level as well, having the necessary connections to other offices from the Berkshires to Cape Cod and everywhere in between.

image description

Letter: Caccaviello Offers Leadership, Continuity

Paul's leadership and his position are way too important to be castigated in the political arena.

Andrea Harrington is the right person in the right place at the right time.

'The Old Man & the Gun': The Antihero & the Movie Star

We are warmly invited to again marvel at how Redford's handsomeness and signature humanitarianism have always seemed so magically inseparable.

image description

Letter: Integrity Matters in District Attorney Race

A candidate must be held responsible for allowing and promoting information about his rival that is blatantly not true and hurtful.

image description

Letter: Write-In Paul Caccaviello

Write-in Paul Caccaviello on Nov. 6. Choose an experienced prosecutor over a politician.

image description

Letter: Support Our Democratic Nominee Andrea Harrington

It is now crystal clear that Paul Caccaviello used the Democratic Party as a way to assure what he perceived as an easy path to get elected. Why should this be a surprise as he was never a Democrat and his positions throughout the campaign demonstrated that?

image description

Letter: Question 1 Will Hurt Small Hospitals

This mandate would take autonomy away from me as a nurse. I need to be able to individualize care based on my own knowledge and comfort, not a rigid mandate.

image description

Letter: Support for Paul Caccaviello for District Attorney

I am a "law and order" person who believes in the rule of law and the safety of our community, but I know the district attorney's duties go beyond that. So, to help decide who the best candidate for DA is, I looked all the facts and ask that you do the same.

No one should have a monopoly on this office for years at a time. It is important for fair administration. This is why we have elections for certain positions. And the election process should not be controlled by money or power.

'Colette': Liberté, Égalité and Literature

Such hyperbolic self-examination, while exaggerated for my own literary purposes here, is nonetheless proof of what a fine period piece this film is. Still, while boasting Keira Knightley in a superb title portraiture, those indifferent to belles-lettres and avant-garde sensibilities need not apply.

image description

Letter: Choose Harrington Over Opponent's Spin

Paul is running a "write-in" campaign under the mostly false premise that "not everyone had the chance to vote in the primary."

image description

Letter: Question 1 Will Hurt Small Hospitals

If Question 1 passed it would enforce rigid staffing ratios that are not geared towards patients' needs. Every patient is different, so we base decisions on acuity and collaboration rather than strict numbers.
