The Prudential reviewed the fiscal 2016 budget and discussed the cracks appearing in the walls of the fire station. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass — The Fire District on Wednesday decided to see what can be done to shore up the building it would like nothing more than to vacate.   "Let's be realistic," said John Notsley, the chairman of the Prudential Committee, which oversees the fire district. "We're going to be at 34 Water St. for some time, and we can't afford to let the station fall apart."   The Prudential Committee spent much of the last couple of years planning for a new location for the Williamstown Fire Department.

Senior Sarah Thompson ended her individual swimming career in style, cruising to a National Championship title and an NCAA, NESCAC, and team record of 16 minutes, 21.44

Coming into this week's Federal Open Market Committee meeting, investors thought they had a handle on what the central bankers planned to do about interest rates. Once again, the Fed threw us a curve.

The bet was that the word "patient," in regard to when the Fed might raise interest rates for the first time in nine years, would be removed from the language of the FOMC policy statement. That would signal, according to Fed watchers, that the first hike in interest rates would occur as early as June.
