Letter: Statement of the Lenox Democrats Regarding Smear Job on Alex Morse

We, the Lenox Democratic Town Committee, condemn the Massachusetts Democrats and the Massachusetts College Democrats for their deplorable conduct with respect to candidate Alex Morse for Congress.

Guest Column: Morse Allegations a 'fishy' Story

We should be talking about Neal being on the corporate payroll. Instead, we are talking about Morse's private dating life.

Letter: Berkshires, Country Need Neal in Congress

In this day and age it is refreshing to have a representative who remembers so vividly where he came from. A leader who is accessible, responsive and listens to his constituents. He is a fixture in the Berkshires, visiting our businesses, speaking to our children in schools and meeting with our local officials.

Letter: Postpone Pot Vote in Williamstown

Two conflicting, confusing, and deficient articles are posted to the town warrant this year. The two articles were drafted without proper community input in one case and technical finesse in another.

Letter: Reefer Madness in Williamstown

The days of prohibition are over: today distilleries, breweries and vineyards are popular lucrative tourist attractions. Soon enough, we will realize that niche marijuana growing presents that same opportunity. Let's protect our Williamstown farmers' rare chance to do more than break even.

Letter: Vote Yes on 33, No on 34

We should not agree to postpone Article 33 until next year's town meeting. We'll need Article 33's insurance in the meantime against the intense development pressures we've already seen big cannabis bring to town.

Letter: Town Meeting Vote: 'Bend The Arc Toward Racial Justice'

On Aug. 18, Williamstown residents will have the opportunity to vote on the NIOC pledge. A vote for this pledge is an acknowledgement, a collective addressing, and a commitment to inclusiveness, tolerance and respect for all and is one way to reverse the very real wrongs and historical instances of ugliness in the Village Beautiful.

Letter: Bright Future for Outdoor Marijuana Cultivation in Williamstown

As a small vegetable farmer in Williamstown, I am a strong supporter of the citizens petition on outdoor marijuana cultivation that will be voted on at the Williamstown town meeting on Aug. 18.

Letter: No Complaints in Sheffield on Outdoor Pot Farms

Digging a little deeper, the issues were typically associated with large industrial-scale operations, almost always with indoor production facilities, predominately in western states with far less stringent regulations than Massachusetts.

Letter: Mail-In Voting

If you apply to vote by mail, in many or most towns you can deliver your own ballot envelope to the town's drop box. In Cheshire, for example, there is a drop box at the Town Hall right next to the entrance to the town clerk's office.

Letter: Stop Construction of Pittsfield Cell Tower

On behalf of all of those who were muted last night, I am asking the mayor, the City Council, Community Development and the Zoning Board and the Community Preservation Committee to rescind the 877 South St. cell tower permit, stop the construction, ensure the tower is off, and restart a fair and transparent permitting process.

Letter: Williamstown's Racist Legacy

I asked my great-aunt and -uncle what they heard and saw Colonial Village as residents and they all say: "Whites-only. We were told as children to avoid going in there because it was unsafe and unwelcoming for Black people."

Letter: Democracy In quarantine: Vote, and Vote Safely

Never has it been so dangerous to cast our vote; yet, more so than ever, we need to. This upcoming national election will determine the course of our country, our town, our family, and our life.
