Kirt Mayland of Reservoir Road Holdings reviews plans for a private array off Gravel Bank Road.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Clarksburg is considering a municipal solar array on the former landfill.

The Selectmen on Monday were also updated on a proposal for the development of a private array on Gravel Bank Road.

Town Administrator Carl McKinney informed the board that he plans to apply for a state Clean Energy Resiliency Initiative grant that will pay for technical consulting of a 77-acre parcel of town-owned land.

McKinney said the parcel extends from the Department of Public Works building on West Cross Road north to the old dump.

A solar array would be placed on the capped landfill and

The U.S. Senate rejected passage of the Keystone Pipeline by one vote this week. The controversial energy plan will be back on the agenda, however, in January. For most of us, separating fact from fiction as both sides alter the facts is difficult at best, but here are some things we do know.

First, we can describe the project. The proposed Keystone XL project consists of an 875-mile stretch of pipeline and related facilities that will transport 830,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil from Alberta, Canada, through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska. It will then connect to existing pipeline facilities that flow through Nebraska, Oklahoma and ultimately down to the Texas Gulf Coast

Luma's Muffin & Mug may be moving down Main Street while its former location, above, becomes Oh, Crepe.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The void left by the closure of Luma's Muffin & Mug on Main Street maybe filled twice over - once by Luma's itself.

Owners Nicole and Glenn Maloney have indicated the shuttered bakery and coffee shop may have found right space on Main Street.

"Last week we did look at a space downtown that is still in need of renovation. We are planning to monitor the work in the space and to continue to work with the landlord to see if we can put together a viable plan that will work in the space and in downtown North Adams," Glenn Maloney

While summer vacations and national holidays typically provide a break for everyone who would be considered a member of the working public, there is one big break ahead that’s a priority on most everyone’s calendar — retirement. 

And while it may be closer for some than it is for others, everyone needs to make sure they are financially prepared when the time comes to take a permanent leave from the ranks of the employed.  Personal circumstances make planning for retirement different for each individual, but there are several considerations that apply if you break it down by the amount of time you have left until you retire.

The School Committee hears from Town Administrator Carl McKinney, left, on the preschool proposal and food service manager Susan Berger, center, on cafeteria changes.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The School Committee on Thursday voted to move forward with a preschool feasibility study — pending a decision by the MSBA next month.

The school and town are looking at the possibility of moving the Veterans of Foreign Wars post home next to Town Hall for use as preschool.

The School Committee, however, is expected to learn in December whether it will be accepted into the Massachusetts School Building Authority program.

To the Editor:

The Scenic Railway's retirement of its Berkshires History museum-car will surely disappoint the donors who contributed in excess of $110,000 in cash and labor to create it. How sad to read on the Internet, “This exhibit is now closed" — and not just sad for the lost investment.

This was the only educational facility in existence dedicated to covering the entire county’s beginnings, from exploration and first settlement in the 1700s through the cultural ascendancy of Tanglewood and Jacob’s Pillow today.

Attorney Stan Parese said the failure to include the two-year limit on his client's gravel removal permit meant the permit was still viable. Selectmen said they'd get their own legal opinion.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Selectmen will seek town counsel's advice over an expired special gravel removal permit.

Michael Milazzo and his attorney, Stanley Parese of Parese Sabin Smith & Gold LLP,, met with the board Monday night and claimed that the expiration of Millazzo’s gravel removal special permit is void.

Parese said the permit failed to mention a two-year expiration date and no one challenged the mistake in the allotted 20-day appeal period. Because Milazzo
