Sam Rockwell and Nina Arianda in 'Fool for Love' at Williamstown Theatre Festival this week. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As the calendar turns to August, the days get shorter and evenings get a little bit darker — particularly at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.   The WTF this week wraps up an 11-day run for the Sam Shepard drama "Fool for Love" on the Nikos Stage and launches the musical "The Visit" on its Main Stage.   The former looks at twisted love and desperation in the American West. The latter is a tale of diabolical revenge in a small town.   Neither is what you might characterize as light summer fare.   But WTF Producer

Bill H.3996, An Act relative to the labeling of seed, requires that "food for human consumption and seeds that produce

Selectmen Chairman Ronald Turbin and Jane Patton review minutes from a prior meeting on Monday evening. Patton filled in the board on conversations about possibly moving the Fire District's annual meeting to the same day as town meeting. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — There has been a lot of talk over the couple of years about getting the town's two municipal entities on the same page.   Part of the solution may lie in getting them on the same page of the calendar.   At Monday's meeting of the Board of Selectmen, Selectwoman Jane Patton told her colleagues about discussions she has had with the chairman of the Prudential Committee, which oversees Williamstown's

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Some veterans of the local music scene Friday recaptured a little of their youth at the Williamstown Youth Center.

Four members of Mount Greylock Regional School's classes of 1974 and '75 held a jam session in the center's music room as they geared up for Saturday's 1974 Class Reunion at the Williams Inn.

Mark and Paul "P.J." Roughan, Mike Immerman and North Adams' Tom Marshall rocked out to the sounds of Van Morrison, Golden Earring and the like.

And the youngsters on hand from the WYC's

To the editor:   I read with interest the iBerkshires,com report of the July 24th meeting of the Williamstown Conservation Commission.  Guess I march to a different drummer than several in the audience who urged developing  the Lowry and Burbank properties!  Here's why:   How many open spaces are left in town that are not privately owned, that could replace the Lowry and Burbank properties as open space and agricultural conservation land? Don't tell me the Spruces is one of them, because that property could never ever replace Burbank and Lowry.  The Spruces property lies along busy Route 2, has many large culverts buried underneath it, and long years of

It's the near surreptitious merging of traditional romantic farce with the new screwball raunchiness that's body-snatched the American film comedy in recent years. While the prim and proper are sure to be abashed by the complications engendered when a thirtysomething couple's tape of their marathon lovemaking goes viral, the jaded may be wont to wonder: When did such risqué behavior
