Designers for the Heritage Park renovation offered several styles of lighting for the commission's review; the verdict was the bell-shaped fixture with the S-curve on the arm — as long as it's black.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The lighting fixtures are high-tech LED but the option offered by Greylock Market has enough of a vintage swirl to pass the muster of the Historical Commission.

The commission on Wednesday afternoon voted to approve the bell-style light poles by Kim Lighting.

"Personally, that looked like the best combination of old and new," Chairwoman Justyna Carlson said.

Commissioners agreed, dismissing several other options as not up to snuff.

Zumba Dancing in the Streets is adding a beer tent this year.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The local Italian restaurant is going Tex-Mex.

DeFazio's Italian Bistro and Bar, which opened last summer, has reopened as TJ's Southwestern Bar & Grill.

"DeFazio's worked," he said. "What's not working is the price point ... We're going to change it up to a cheaper price point."

Lanfair said it was harder for customers to spend $15 to $20 a meal. The new offerings will be closer to $7 to $8 with promotions like "Taco

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The nascent MCLA women's lacrosse team achieved two milestones on Tuesday afternoon: winning its first ever overtime game and its first ever home game.   If Mother Nature cooperates, the Trailblazers might even have another first this spring: their first game on their own field.   "We're not sure yet how many games we're going to play [at Williams] just because our field is covered in snow," MCLA junior and Hoosac Valley graduate Kaitlyn Brown of Adams said. "We're going to be all over the place for games.   "I hope it melts. This being cold and hot doesn't work -- at least not in our favor."   Not that

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Four tickets to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Race at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on July 19 are being raffled to benefit a local woman battling cancer.

In March 2014, shortly before her 32nd birthday, Krista Pinsonneault, a high school history teacher at Drury High School, was diagnosed with stage 2 Hodgkins Lymphoma. What was supposed to be a relatively “easy” treatment regime turned much more complicated in July when her rather “traditional” cancer became refractory (a fancy word for extremely stubborn and resistant to chemotherapy). As a result, she has had to endure a much more difficult path toward recovery, one which will include a
