By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com

BOSTON -- Gov. Charlie Baker Wednesday said the FDA’s decision to recommend pausing distribution of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine was a positive.   “I would argue, in some respects, the decision the FDA and CDC made here based on six cases out of 7 million [doses distributed] to put a pause on this and take a look at it is an example of the system working the way it should,” Baker said. “In an abundance of caution, they put out the word that, ‘We need to take a look at this,’ and that’s what they’re doing.   Baker referred back to an incident earlier this month when problems were reported at a Johnson & Johnson

Williamstown Finance Committee Reviews Town's Capital Plan
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:12AM / Monday, April 12, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Finance Committee last week concluded its review of the town's fiscal 2022 spending plan and made plans to vote its recommendations next week.   The last major item up for discussion was the capital spending plan for FY22, which represents about 6 percent of town hall spending, or $650,000.   That represents a $90,800 increase from the current fiscal year, but as Town Manager Jason Hoch reminded the Fin Common on Wednesday, $650,000 is closer to what the town had been investing in infrastructure before it dialed back that budget last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.   The largest single item in the capital plan is $203,000 for erosion

03:52PM / Sunday, April 11, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Nicholls "Niko" White has removed himself as a candidate for the Select Board.   White had to run for the last year of the term being vacated by Jeffrey Thomas and had gained enough signatures to be placed on the ballot for the annual town election. White said he had announced to run for office when no other candidates had stepped forward and it appeared that the elected office would be uncontested or lack a strong progressive candidate.    But as of last week, it had turned into a four-way race.   "I decided to campaign to make sure my positions were represented in the field," White said in announcing his witgdrawal from
