Letter: Waubeeka Important to All of Williamstown

With all due respect, Waubeeka is not just a South Williamstown issue. People from all parts of town are concerned with various aspects of the way Mr. Deep's initial proposal seems to have morphed into something quite different from the initial golf course with a "3 to 5 acre boutique country inn."

Letter: 1st Amendment Audit

I've been watching a lot of YouTube videos lately about 1st Amendment audits. I see North Adams has gotten its first 1st Amendment audit performed by capitaldistrictcopblock and failed.

Letter: Golf Course Zoning Proposal Bad Planning

We on the Williamstown Planning Board heard a petition about six months ago from Mike Deep, who owns the Waubeeka golf course. The following is an account of subsequent events.

Letter: Mount Greylock School Building Project Deserves Our Support

Tomorrow, March 15, will be a day that we, as residents of Lanesborough, will look back upon and say we did the right thing for our children, our towns and our communities by voting for the Mt. Greylock Building Project.

Letter: Wahconah Hockey Penalized Unfairly

On Feb. 24, 2016, the Wahconah Regional High School hockey team faced Easthampton High School in the last regular season game for both teams. WRHS was gearing up for the Western Mass Division IIIA Tournament while EHS was preparing for next season having been eliminated from playoff contention. But the game would not end without controversy or repercussions.

Letter: Vote YES for the Children & Future of Lanesborough

As the critical vote to keep the Mount Greylock school building project alive nears on Tuesday, I feel I must join those who are speaking out publicly to support the project, in the hope that I can convince even a few more of my fellow Lanesborough citizens to vote yes.

Letter: Come Together to Support Mount Greylock

As parents of Mount Greylock students, we have seen how desperately a new building is needed and how much work it takes the staff and students to teach and learn in challenging circumstances. We have also seen the communities of Lanesborough and Williamstown come together time and again to support their students. Parents raise money for teams and fill the cheering section at many sporting events.

Letter: Vote for Mount Greylock Regional High School

Martha and I chose to come to Williamstown some 40 years ago in 1976 with three children aged 9, 7 and 2. Our decision came in large part because of the reputation of the Williamstown and Mount Greylock school systems. Here our children, and now grandchildren, have received outstanding educations that enabled them to attend colleges of their choice that they might not have otherwise.

Letter: The Bus Ride Home

As the parent of a current Mount Greylock Regional School student, I have followed the news, social media, and unwavering advocacy for, and unyielding protests against, the health and safety of the school my son loves. I have found myself frustrated and hopeful, excited and disappointed, energized and exhausted by the emotional roller coaster that has ensued for over a year.

Letter: Lanesborough Debt Exclusion Vote Best Option

Some of those opposed to passage of the debt exclusion vote in Lanesborough on Tuesday, March 15, have been widely circulating the outrageous claim that the cost of the project is "$150,000 per Lanesborough student."

Letter: Lanesborough Voters Should Vote Yes

I am from Lanesborough. I went to Mount Greylock Regional School. I graduated with honors. I went to college, obtained a master's, eventually a doctorate, and now am a professor.

Letter: Vote Yes For Mount Greylock Plan

The giant sign saying you should vote no and wait for a better plan in May is simply false. To have a different and lower-priced project would require another feasibility study approved by the state before it could be brought to the towns, taking upwards of another 10 years.

Letter: Asks Neighbors to Vote YES

My family and I fully support the current plan to build a new and renovated Mount Greylock Jr./Sr. school. It is either pay now, with financial help, or pay MORE later, with no help. The long view wins.

Letter: City Cab Is a Good Company

I been wanting to do this for a long time. I am very good friends with Sue and Mike at City Cab. I will tell you, you can't meet better people anywhere.

Letter: Sanders Stands for Social, Economic Justice

Last Monday, I had the opportunity to hear Bernie Sanders speak at the Mullen Center at the University of Massachusetts. His analysis of what happened to the American economy in the financial crisis of 2008 is right on the money.
