Kobe Japanese Steakhouse to open on Mohawk Trail

I am part of the group which is hoping to see established by the town a ban on plastic bags which are non-bio-degradable. What occurred over the petition is unfortunate. We hope to have a petition approved so that a ban on plastic bags will be enforced in a timely fashion. ...(full comment)

Plastic ban proposal causes tension between petitioners, Greenfield officials

I thought Park Villa and Redbrook were "owned" by the Montague Housing Authority---and managed by Franklin County Regional Housing and Redevelopment Authority. Were Martin and Pyers in the Affordable Housing industry as well as regional development? If someone wanted to review the funding for those two housing developments, i.e., public records...where might they be, with the Department of Housing and Community Development now? Or was Federal funding involved (HUD)? ...(full comment)

In New Mexico, the fossil fuel consortium, Power New Mexico, will charge an extra fee for those using solar energy. Here in a land with 300 days of sunlight. Criminal. ...(full comment)

Bos/My Turn: Sowing seeds of ‘doubt’

Words of solidarity from Greenfield’s common

The owner of that building, if it's the one I think it is, the one with the odd diagonal wood siding, is a kind and good hearted gentleman with some very tragic issues. This is not a case of a rich absentee landlord- not even close. The property has taken a toll on its owner far worse than its crumbling foundation has taken a toll on the sensitive eyes of the Public. I hope the town can handle this gently, and that in the process he can find some support. Mr. V, if indeed I am correct, could really use a little. And that building was a wreck before he bought it. Can the town make him a token buy-out offer? ...(full comment)

Conway’s Sunset Garage changes hands after three decades

Very well said by all. Fear and ignorance, intolerance and hate...are the antithesis of creation. Freedom of expression, and the society that celebrates such a concept...can heal, unite, and lead us to a better world. Words and pictures are not the enemy---neither are the millions of ideas and thousands of beliefs we find foreign. Art, music, poetry, dance, drama, the written word---and any other form of self-expression...bring us closer to ourselves and each other. ...(full comment)

Local cartoonists react to Paris massacre at Charlie Hebdo

Well, it looks like this business will be in good hands. Glad the Johnson family is " keeping it local". Good luck to them all and I hope it florishes. ...(full comment)
