Taunton Gazette Top 5 Jenna Lyons Roseland Ballroom Shawn Cronin

Before we begin the new week in earnest, we’re taking a look back at the week that was, and the stories that led the news with Taunton Daily Gazette readers.

Top stories this past week included:

The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court mostly siding with Fairhaven-based cannabis dispensary Bask in litigation between the company and the city of Taunton. In a July 21 ruling, the SJC upheld the previous ruling made by Land Court, which, in December 2020 said the City Council acted arbitrarily and capriciously when it didn’t grant Bask a special permit back in October 2019. That’s far from the end of things though, for either Bask or the city; Gazette Reporter Daniel Schemer has the story, here.

Does a home on the Assonet River with room to dock a yacht sound too good to be true? Well, it is in fact real, and in Berkley, but only a viable option for the folks who recently bought it for $1.5 million. That’s yacht-not-included. The custom-built 5,400-square-foot colonial features an open floor plan, nine-foot ceilings and a gas fireplace on the first floor. Other features include a basketball half-court.
