Students from Williamstown Community Preschool watch Mather House make its way down Main Street on Wednesday morning.

WILLAMSTOWN, Mass. — Traffic came to halt for several hours Wednesday morning as the 1840 Mather House made its way up Main Street and around the corner at Field Park.

The move of the 170-year-old building in two pieces required the closure of Route 2 west of Spring Street and removal of the phone and electrical wires that crossed Stetson Court, where the house has been since being relocated in 2002.

Spectators gathered in the chilly temperatures to take pictures of the structures making their way down Main Street. Street signs had to be removed

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Elementary School Committee has set a special meeting for Monday, Nov. 24, but it hopes not to need it.   The committee at its monthly meeting last week discussed what would happen if the Tri-District partnership of Williamstown and Lanesborough public schools cannot agree on an interim superintendent when it meets on Friday afternoon at Mount Greylock Regional School.   "As a School Committee, we're part of a [superintendency] union, but there are a lot of things taking place that I'm concerned might put us at risk," School Committee member Richard Reynolds said in a meeting telecast on the town's community access

Last Thursday, the Conservation Commission reviewed a vegetative wetlands delineation commissioned by the college from local engineering firm Guntlow & Associates.

On Tuesday evening, the Planning Board will hold a "community input session" to consider a possible expansion of the

Dr. Eric White, left, and hiking friend Billy Goat at this year's Gathering in Williamstown.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — More than 400 hikers gathered gathered quietly in the Carmelite Fields over the Columbus Day weekend.

If you happened to drive by fields off Oblong Road, you would have come across an array of bright colors from the hundreds of lined up tents. Surrounding these tents, you would have found bearded travelers sharing tales from the road.

These elusive visitors were not typical leaf peepers or tourists, but members of the Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association. The 1,800 member group has been silently entering and exiting areas throughout the country like this

Stocks have had a wonderful run since mid-October's swoon. The S&P 500 Index is now up over 10 percent from its bottom. As we approach another record high, expect some backing and filling before moving higher. I wish I could say the same about the price of oil.

The price of oil is the main topic of conversation among traders and investors. Typically, as the price declines further, Wall Street energy bears vie for headlines by predicting even worse times ahead for energy. Technicians are now considering $40 a barrel as a real possibility and others are jumping on the band wagon as oil broke $75 a barrel on the downside this week.

Methinks the selling is overdone at least over the

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Matthew McConaughey travels through space and time to save humanity in 'Interstellar.'

I contemplated the critiquing task that lay ahead with trepidation. Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar," taking us once more into the breach of apocalyptic rumination and adventure, boasted a daunting length of 169 minutes. That's 2.81 human hours. I feared I'd be an old man when I exited ... the world will have changed; no one would know me, nor I them. But then this is what I signed up for when I took the hypocritical oath at Olde Ivy Film Criticism College. Maybe
