I was driving down Route 7 in Williamstown on Thursday around 6 p.m. and my breath literally caught at the beauty of the stretch of road in front of Mount Greylock Regional High School.

I've always considered this to be one of the most beautiful half-miles in all the world, though I may be biased. Still, seeing the fading ray of the sun caressing the lovely fall foliage was awesome. So awesome that my daughter tried to take a picture through the car window. It didn't work, but I will always have it in my mind's eye.

This weekend in North Berkshire is all about the foliage. Starting tonight, Friday, Oct. 3, with the Fall Foliage Festival Children's parade and ending Sunday,

Williams College track and field athletes work with local children at last year's 'My First Track Meet' event. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williams College track and field teams cannot wait to start using the recently completed track at the new Weston Field complex.   So it won't.   Instead, men and women from the college track team will help run a special event for Berkshire County kids aged 5 to 10 on Friday evening from 5 to 7 p.m.   Though it is billed as "My First Track Meet," the program will be less about times and distances than having a good time and learning long-term life skills.   "It's not really a meet,"

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Longtime SNL colleagues Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader are on the same wavelength in 'The Skeleton Twins.'

Director Craig Johnson's "The Skeleton Twins," although deceivingly simple of plot on first blush, stealthily weaves a hypnotically engaging, bittersweet tale about estranged male-female twins who try to reconnect following a rather eerie coincidence. The small-town scenario ostensibly serves as a psychologist's couch, with a silent and unseen Dr. Freud interpolating the cause of the title characters' profound unhappiness. They are troubled individuals

You never paid attention to the family finances. Suddenly, your spouse wants a divorce. Fortunately, it's an amicable separation and you agree to split things up equitably. Where do you begin?

The above scenario is much more common than you think since the odds that your marriage will end in divorce are about even at best. More than 50 percent of first marriages end in divorce and 60 percent of remarriages, so the statistics are weighted against a successful marriage in America. It is extremely important therefore that both spouses understand their current financial situation and what their income needs will be post-divorce.

First, think of what your immediate cash needs will be. If

Around 100 people turned out for the candlelight vigil at Noel Field to celebrate those in recovery and remember those struggling or lost.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Brandy Whipple's struggle with addiction left her shoeless, homeless and alone on the streets of Salt Lake City.

It's also where she was reborn, in a sense, in finding the strength to reach for help to overcome her addiction.

"I feel like I died on the streets," Whipple told the crowd of nearly 100 gathered on Tuesday at Noel Field for the second annual candlelight vigil on substance abuse. "The person who I was, the things I did, I feel like I just died on the streets and from that point on, not to

Generally, you feel better – more confident – when you’re sporting a new look. Sometimes, even the smallest changes can make a big difference in your attitude. Doesn’t your investment plan deserve the same kind of attention? After all, someday it’s going to be taking care of you!

Perhaps your portfolio is overweighted in stocks. Maybe you’d like to spice up your portfolio with commodities. Whatever you have in mind, it’s always a good move to regularly review your investments and make decisions about your financial strategies.

A typical annual review compares your portfolio's annual performance against broad benchmarks such as the S&P 500

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The 4-H Youth Program is looking for adult volunteers (age 21 and older) to start up 4-H clubs in the Williamstown area.  

There are youth interested in being part of the program, but there are no clubs in the area for them to join.  

The 4-H program is designed for both boys and girls ages 5-18, broken down to Cloverbuds, Juniors and Seniors. The Cloverbud program is specifically for boys and girls in kindergarten through third grade (ages 5 to 7) and is built on cooperative learning, rather than competitive activities. Juniors (ages 8-13) and Seniors (ages14-18) work on projects.

4-H cloverbud clubs are activity-focused and not project-focused
