To the Editor:

I am writing to endorse Holly Hamer for the Great Barrington Town Planning Board. For many years now, whenever I have encountered Holly on neighborhood walks I have asked her for more information about town issues than was available through local media. She has always responded with knowledgeable insight. Holly has been a committed and caring member of this community for decades, both as a businesswoman and as an active participant in town affairs, including serving as a library trustee. She has a balanced approach to development that reflects Great Barrington’s Master Plan vision of encouraging prosperity while preserving our quality of life. Holly will be an astute and diligent member of the Planning Board whose service to the town will be an asset.

BOB GRAY: Children’s Crusade

Friday, Feb 23 - Following the latest school shooting atrocity in Parkland, Florida, another Children’s Crusade is rising: a largely youth-bred movement meant to persuade legislators to take some meaningful action to stem the needless deaths of our country’s children in schools.


Wednesday, Feb 21 - It didn’t take long for me to realize that the young adults of Parkland were cutting through the layers of despair I had built up all these years. They were telling their truth with passion and conviction.

Cockroaches, Lent and felled innocence

Tuesday, Feb 20 - On an average, 96 people a day are killed by gunfire in the United States. Yesterday, 17 children were killed in Florida. That leaves 79 others whose names and faces we won’t be seeing online or in print, but they are still dead.
