f243b57cfd5ba491d0d23e4238d863ea_400x400The next presidential election isn’t happening for a year and half, but the hats are already starting to pile up in the proverbial ring. Hillary finally made her official – and much anticipated – announcement, and the Republican contenders are lining up to try and take her down.

Signs of Spring

The  bear in his den.

The bear in his den.

Snow is melting, sun is shining, crocuses are blooming…but there’s something else to look for, as Bill explains. Also, what’s going to happen to downtown Northampton now that the BID never existed? And finally, poetry. Wait, why are you running away? Don’t worry: we didn’t write it.
