Gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley greets supporters at the Freight Yard Pub after a day of campaign stops that started in Dorchester. She also met with voters in Great Barrington and Pittsfield.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Martha Coakley ended a swing through the state on Saturday by toasting a title she hopes to claim on Nov. 4: Governor Coakley.

The Drury High School graduate vowed she hasn't — and wouldn't — forget her home county to the small group gathered in the courtyard of the Freight Yard Pub.

"I promise you, as your governor, if you help me get elected, and I know we can do this, I will have your back," the Democratic candidate said.

Jenny Gitlitz is pushing for a deposit on water bottles to encourage more recycling.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Environmental groups have been pushing for more than a decade to expand the 5-cent deposit to non-carbonated beverages.   But each year, a bill expanding the deposit has sat at the legislative committee level.   In November, the groups are bypassing the entire Legislature and bringing the question directly to the voters.   The bottle bill expansion is Question 2 on the general election ballot, one of four ballot articles being presented to voters.   "The public will is being thwarted by industry money. So the ballot initiative process is seen as

Volatility was the buzz word this week in the stock market. The averages moved up and down by a percent or so on a daily basis but ended the week on a high note. Can we expect more of the same?

Traditionally, at least the first two weeks of this month have been volatile, so the good news is that we are half way through that period and so far there has been scant damage to the averages. At one point this week the S&P 500 Index was down about 4 percent from its highs but stocks found support around the 1935 level and bounced from there.

Friday the markets were galvanized by a jobs report that showed 248,000 job gains in the month of September. That drove the unemployment rate down to

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
