Fettuccine Bolognese from last year's Offal Dinner with pig skin and pork kidney garnished with fresh basil. The annual event serves up little-used butcher portions in a gourmet meal for All Hallow's Eve.

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Meat Market's third annual Offal Dinner is not your commonplace Halloween celebration.

No candy corn or caramel apples.

And there's a lot of detail needed to appreciate this ghoulish gourmet livestock farm-to-table six-course innards tasting dinner.

So for those with the gustatory fortitude, the dinner honoring All Hallow's Eve is Saturday night at 6 p.m.

The Meat Market is the dream child of food entrepreneur Jeremy Stanton.

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Bill Murray teaches his young neighbor Oliver, played by Jaeden Lieberher, about the vagaries of life in the smartly written 'St. Vincent.'

I'm thinking there must have been dust or some such irritant in the movie theater where I saw director Theodore Melfi's "St. Vincent," about a curmudgeonly Vietnam vet who takes the lonesome, diminutive young boy next door under wing. Otherwise, how could a manly man like your humble film critic explain the intermittent, involuntary production of a liquid in his eyes that might otherwise be confused for tears of joy and/or

The IRS has given us all a New Year's gift. As of Jan. 1, the tax-deferred contributions on a variety of employee-sponsored, retirement savings plans have been increased, but not for IRAs.

Readers may already be familiar with the traditional 401(k) plan. It was established as an alternative to the nation's pension plans that are fast disappearing. Most companies offer 401(k)s to their employees (or 403(b)s if working for the state or a non-profit) as a fringe benefit. These plans allow employees to contribute as much as $17,500 a year plus an additional $5,500 catchup if you are over 50. The contributions come right off the top of your W-2 wages so there are considerable tax

I don't think anyone gets Halloween off from work or school, but somehow it feels like a three-day weekend, doesn't it?

First off, if you're going trick-or-treating Friday night, stay safe. I'm sure you know the drill but here are some tips just in case you want a reminder.

You might as well keep the Halloween fun going into the evening of Saturday, Nov. 1.  Starting at 5 p.m., the Mason Library in Great Barrington is hosting a free Community Halloween Party. The kids party starts at 5 p.m. with "spirited" storytelling by Tim Van Egmond, a folksinger and storyteller who performs throughout New England. Devilish pizza and creepy cupcakes follow from 6

Parents and teachers spoke out against attempts to dissolve the union with Williamstown Elementary.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The School Committee on Wednesday put off a decision on whether to end its affiliation with Williamstown Elementary School.

At a well-attended 4 p.m. meeting of the three-person committee, at least eight residents commented from the microphone or their seats. All but one [the

It's time to release the ghouls and goblins onto the streets in search of treats. The state fire marshal has offered fire safety tips for celebrating Halloween.

 

Costumes

* Children should carry a flashlight and their costumes should be bright-colored or have reflective tape to highlight them.

* Be sure all parts of the costume are labeled flame retardant.

* Costumes should not have trailing material or tails long enough to cause falls.

* Pointed objects such as swords and devils’ forks should be made of soft material.

* If your child wears a mask instead of make-up on their face, double check that the eye holes are large enough to see through clearly.

Stetson Court will be the location of the college's first dormitory in nearly a half century.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When Williams College first opened its doors to students in 1793, only 65 boys were enrolled.

Now it has a diverse population of approximately 2,100 housed in dormitories and small houses around the campus.

Of the more than 30 student residences, West College, constructed in 1791-1793, is the oldest dormitory. Tyler Annex, built in 1972, is the newest.

Williams is planning to add its first new dormitory in 42 years and has selected Stetson Court for its location.

"We hope the new dorm will be completed in the fall of 2016," Frederick Puddester,
