PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Steve Kerrigan says the party's "ground game" is what is going to make the difference in a very tight gubernatorial race.   Kerrigan was in Pittsfield on Friday as part of his final push efforts. Counting hours instead of days until the polls close, party officials are frantically canvassing neighborhoods, calling voters and talking to others are events — such as Kerrigan's trip to a senior citizens fair at the Boys and Girls Club.   "This is a tied race.

Supporters of Question 2 set up with giant bottle on Park Square on Thursday.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — As next week's statewide election approaches, local environmentalists and others have mounted substantial efforts to lobby in favor of Ballot Question 2, which would expand on Massachusetts' existing bottle bill.

Proponents of the ballot initiative, which would expand current monetary incentives for recycling soda and beer bottles to non-carbonated beverages, lined Park Square on Thursday beneath a giant inflatable bottle to get their point across.

Advocates say expansion of the law is crucial to increasing recycling that will both reduce waste in the environment and help

Fettuccine Bolognese from last year's Offal Dinner with pig skin and pork kidney garnished with fresh basil. The annual event serves up little-used butcher portions in a gourmet meal for All Hallow's Eve.

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The Meat Market's third annual Offal Dinner is not your commonplace Halloween celebration.

No candy corn or caramel apples.

And there's a lot of detail needed to appreciate this ghoulish gourmet livestock farm-to-table six-course innards tasting dinner.

So for those with the gustatory fortitude, the dinner honoring All Hallow's Eve is Saturday night at 6 p.m.

The Meat Market is the dream child of food entrepreneur Jeremy Stanton.

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Bill Murray teaches his young neighbor Oliver, played by Jaeden Lieberher, about the vagaries of life in the smartly written 'St. Vincent.'

I'm thinking there must have been dust or some such irritant in the movie theater where I saw director Theodore Melfi's "St. Vincent," about a curmudgeonly Vietnam vet who takes the lonesome, diminutive young boy next door under wing. Otherwise, how could a manly man like your humble film critic explain the intermittent, involuntary production of a liquid in his eyes that might otherwise be confused for tears of joy and/or

The IRS has given us all a New Year's gift. As of Jan. 1, the tax-deferred contributions on a variety of employee-sponsored, retirement savings plans have been increased, but not for IRAs.

Readers may already be familiar with the traditional 401(k) plan. It was established as an alternative to the nation's pension plans that are fast disappearing. Most companies offer 401(k)s to their employees (or 403(b)s if working for the state or a non-profit) as a fringe benefit. These plans allow employees to contribute as much as $17,500 a year plus an additional $5,500 catchup if you are over 50. The contributions come right off the top of your W-2 wages so there are considerable tax

I don't think anyone gets Halloween off from work or school, but somehow it feels like a three-day weekend, doesn't it?

First off, if you're going trick-or-treating Friday night, stay safe. I'm sure you know the drill but here are some tips just in case you want a reminder.

You might as well keep the Halloween fun going into the evening of Saturday, Nov. 1.  Starting at 5 p.m., the Mason Library in Great Barrington is hosting a free Community Halloween Party. The kids party starts at 5 p.m. with "spirited" storytelling by Tim Van Egmond, a folksinger and storyteller who performs throughout New England. Devilish pizza and creepy cupcakes follow from 6

Parents and teachers spoke out against attempts to dissolve the union with Williamstown Elementary.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The School Committee on Wednesday put off a decision on whether to end its affiliation with Williamstown Elementary School.

Robert Barton and James Moriarty, who forced a special meeting of the committee to vote on the dissolution of Superintendency Union 71, agreed to wait until a recently formed ad hoc town committee conducts its study of options for superintendency services for the pre-K through 6 district.

At a well-attended 4 p.m. meeting of the three-person committee, at least eight residents commented from the microphone or their seats. All but one [the
