Planners Erin Scott, Gregory Vigna, Vincent King and Karin Robert look over the plans for the solar carports.  CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Planning Board says the structures at the former country club are ground-mounted solar arrays; the developer says they are carports with solar-panel roofs.    The debate over the definition of the structures — and whether there was a permit issued for their construction — lead to heated exchanges between town officials and the owner at last week's Planning Board meeting.    "They're solar arrays masquerading as carports," said Planning Board member Karin Robert.   The three structures

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:59PM / Thursday, September 03, 2020

The Retired Investor: Mask Mania Helps Small Business
By Bill Schmick,
02:39PM / Thursday, September 03, 2020
There was a time, when obtaining a protective mask to combat the spread of the coronavirus was almost impossible. That time has passed.

Various small businesses around the nation were also producing masks. Originally, their motives were purely altruistic, simply to

I wish that I were reviewing one of the half-dozen movies certain to be made when this pox upon our house is no more. But until that glorious return to normality has us resuming all the simple joys of life we take for granted, like going to the movies, I'll be retro-reviewing and thereby sharing with you the films that I've come to treasure over the years, most of which can probably be retrieved from one of the movie streaming services. It is my fondest hope that I've barely put a dent into this trove when they let the likes of me back into the
