WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Board of Selectmen on Monday finalized a contract to appoint retired Town Manager Peter Fohlin as interim town manager and appointed Public Works Director Tim Kaiser as acting town manager during Fohlin's one-month absence.   Fohlin retired from the position effective Sunday, and Massachusetts law does not allow him to return to work for the town within a month of his retirement date.   So even though Fohlin has agreed to return on an interim basis until a permanent successor is hired, Kaiser will temporarily be the final authority on town affairs on a day-to-day basis.   Not that Kaiser expects to throw his weight around too

Agrippa Hull, a Revolutionary veteran, was a well-known resident and landowner in Stockbridge.

STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — In the days following the War for Independence, he came to be one of the most celebrated African-American Berkshirites of his time, yet sadly his name is not particularly well known to locals today.  

Not nearly as well remembered as that of Elizabeth Freeman (Mum Bett), with whom he worked and lived beside, Hull's life nonetheless intersected with pivotal pieces of history and left a lasting legacy on the struggle for racial equality in the United States.

"Agrippa Hull was one of the most remarkable and unnoticed African Americans of the revolutionary

Clark Art Institute's exhibit 'Machine Age Modernism' features Claude Flight's linocut prints, a form of printing popular in 1920s and '30s London.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In the first part of the 20th century, Claude Flight and his disciples were doing some cutting edge work.

Literally.

Flight is an innovator and leader of a short-lived boom of linocut printmakers that thrived in London in the 1920s and '30s.

He and his contemporaries are celebrated in the Clark Art Institute's exhibit "Machine Age Modernism," on view in the Clark Center through May 17.

The show features colorful, intricate and often highly abstract images of everyday life

The worst of earnings season is behind us and it isn't nearly as bad as investors feared. Led by the tech sector, market averages are once again near their highs and appear to be on their way to even higher highs. Halleluiah.

If you recall that last week at this time, world markets looked to be at death's door and the recovery in five days has been encouraging. It is not only the U.S. market that has seen a strong recovery. The highly volatile Chinese market, after experiencing close to a 5 percent sell off in two days, rebounded nicely, erasing all losses and then some. The same can be said for Hong Kong and Japan. And now Taiwan is getting into the mix with more than a 3 percent

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Affordable Housing Trust on Wednesday agreed to continue considering three of five proposals it received for properties the trust can purchase for the purpose of building or renovating owner-occupied, deed-restricted homes.   The trustees issued a request for proposals earlier this year for landowners looking to sell to the town. The trust's goal is to create one or more owner-occupied dwellings that would be perpetually affordable for residents at a given income level.   Five landowners submitted proposals, although one was not considered because it did not include an offering price as required under the terms of the recent request for
