03:42AM / Tuesday, July 12, 2016

The Planning Board approved several new businesses but called on one to clean up the property first.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Mister Tire property will reopen for tire service this August under new owners Vianor Inc.

The Planning Board approved a special permit request Monday for the change of ownership of Mister Tire, located at 558 Curran Highway.

"We are excited, and we have big shoes to fill," said Vianor President Jason Phelps.

Phelps said other than a fresh coat of paint and some interior changes, the business should be left mostly unchanged.

"We plan to continue the drive-through tire service like it has been done at this location since 1992," he said.

To Go Solar Or Not To Go Solar?
Presented by Greylock Insurance, Sponsored Content
03:37PM / Monday, July 11, 2016

In a highly unexpected move, the federal government pre-emptively extended the 30 percent investment tax credit for installing a solar PV (photovoltaic) system. This enticing credit was actually due to expire at the end of this year but is now available to homeowners through the end of 2018. While there are approximately 16,000 homes in Massachusetts today that have solar panels, with this exciting news, the number is expected to double in just a few years.

Does the growing popularity of solar and the appealing investment credit mean that you should install solar panels on your home?

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The college students are teaching the kids, but in the end, the kids end up teaching their teachers, too.

Entering the third year of a four-year grant, undergraduates from MCLA and Williams College have worked with both elementary teachers and college science professors to develop inquiry-based units of instruction based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in a program called “Teaching to Learn.” They then implemented their programs with students in Brayton, Colegrove and Greylock schools - and then made tweaks as they learned from the kindergarten through sixth-graders what works.

@theMarket: Historical Low-Interest Rates Prop Up Equities
By Bill Schmick,
09:26AM / Sunday, July 10, 2016

There was a time when soaring bond prices and correspondingly lower interest rates were a bad sign for the stock market and the economy. Thanks to worldwide central banks, that correlation no longer exists, or does it?

Current wisdom on Wall Street will tell you that interest rates are at historical lows because investors are hunting for yield. And it just so happens that the U.S. bond market still offers the highest return on your money. That's not hard to understand if you realize that most developed nations' treasury bonds are yielding far less than ours thanks to central bank manipulation.

Gold, on the other hand, continues to rise, racking up a 30 percent gain so far this

By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:00PM / Saturday, July 09, 2016

David Yates, director of several "Harry Potter" films, does a respectable job of both preserving and translating for contemporary tastes "The Legend of Tarzan." Although a tad methodical, its high-minded social conscience, solid acting performances and scintillating integration of special effects make up for its occasionally slow pace.

Alexander Skarsgard, handsome, built to rumble and adept at varying grimaces, is a fine King of the Jungle ... an extraordinary presence who can illustriously switch from human to ape mode whenever the survival instinct deems necessary.

This latest permutation of Edgar Rice Burroughs' literary hero can glide through the trees with
