Director of the governor's Western Massachusetts office Ryan Chamberland was the guest speaker on Thursday at the bi-annual Berkshire County Selectmen's Association dinner. GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Lee Selectman David Consolati would love to take a bridge down and replace it with a new one in the exact same spot.    But, before he can do that, the town must spend a quarter of a million dollars in engineering and then perform a $60,000 environmental study, among many requirements, throughout a two-year process with the state.   He wants the state to essentially pre-package plans that need to only be adjusted by size of the bridge and shorten the approval

Adrian Dunn speaks to the Board of Selectmen about proposed bylaws planning plastic bags and rigid foam containers. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Environmental activists have one word for voters at this year's annual town meeting: plastics.   But they don't see a future for the petroleum-based material — particularly in the form of single-use plastic bags and foam and rigid polystyrene food containers.   Two citizen petitions will appear on the May 19 warrant seeking the prohibition of the offending materials in the Village Beautiful.   The first, Article 42, seeks to "regulate the use of plastic carryout bags and paper carryout bags within the Town and

Bleecker Street Media Rock star Danny Collins (Al Pacino) takes stock of his life after a missive from John Lennon finally arrives.

I suspect there will be a spate of movies custom made for baby boomers as they proceed into the sexa- and septuagenarian periods of their lives. They will nurture and extoll the virtues of this mixed blessing that's certainly better than the alternative. Call them the Dick and Jane films for golden-agers: i.e. — See Dick have a hip replacement; see Spot sympathize. Hopefully, most will be as entertaining as writer-director Dan Fogelman's "Danny

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Never judge a book by its cover, so the saying goes.

Local author Amelia Ritner doesn't want you to judge a vegetable by its appearance, either.

Ritner, who currently lives in Pittsfield, just released a children's book called "Ugly Farm" that features pictures she took of strange-looking produce while working on a Connecticut farm last summer.

It all started when her boyfriend discovered an eggplant that had an unusual persona.

Universal Pictures The Fast and Furious family's latest road trip is a retread of explosions, speed and gunfire. But this one's got cars falling out of the sky! So it's totally different!

Trying to figure out the renegade ethos that Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and his "team" are trying to exemplify in the frenetically action-packed "Furious 7" leaves me at a loss. Still, I'm going to have a go at it anyway ... but not for diehard fans of this hot-rodding franchise that has skidded miserably off course. Devotees couldn't care less what this O.G. (Old

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The New England Patriots weren't the only big winners on Super Bowl Sunday. Malcolm Butler's last-minute interception of Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson's pass also resulted in a victory for … the Clark Art Institute.

While the Patriots' dramatic victory brought Super Bowl rings to the team, it also brings a very special loan to the Clark. As a result of a friendly rivalry between the Clark and the Seattle Art Museum, Albert Bierstadt's epic painting "Puget Sound
