NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Garrett Rhoads was inspired when he looked into a little box on a piano, wondering what it was.    The box held a spool of perforated paper to make the piano play.    "I knew what it was because I have seen them before," the Pine Cobble School eighth-grader said. "I just, I loved how it looked. And so I wanted to do something with it."   He unspooled the paper and liked the movement it made as it fluttered. So he created a waterfall of four pieces with an accent in the

MCLA Tennis Edged in MASCAC Semis
12:03AM / Sunday, April 28, 2019
JOHNSON, Vt. -- The MCLA mixed tennis team faced SUNY Delhi Saturday afternoon in the North Atlantic Conference semifinal round.   The Trailblazers dropped a heart breaking 5-4 decision to the Broncos, who advance to the NAC championships against Thomas.   MCLA, the No. 2 seed in the tournament, ends its season at 6-5. Delhi, which entered the tournament as the #3 seed, improves to 5-7.   The semifinal was a rematch from ten days ago when the Trailblazers defeated the Broncos 5-4 on their home court. This match was just as close and could have gone either way.   MCLA found itself down 2-1 after doubles as Briana Higgins and Mackenna Jordan earned a point in the third

The Independent Investor: CBD Is a Real Market
By Bill Schmick,
05:28PM / Thursday, April 25, 2019
Cannabidiol is popping up all over the country. Local drug stores, supermarkets and health food shops, among other retailers, can't seem to get enough of this stuff on the shelves. Is this a fad, a fake, or does it have some real health benefits?   It's called CBD, for short, and this oil can be eaten, inhaled, and/or applied to the skin.  It is a substance extracted from the flowers and buds of the marijuana and hemp plant. And no, before you ask, you can't get high from it.     Back in the day, (when I had hair to my shoulders, along with my buckskin jacket) I simply smoked marijuana or ate it in cookies. It contained THC. THC, a chemical, attaches to
