After I read editor Erik Sokolowski's "goodbye" in  the final issue of The Advocate dated Jan. 16, a wave of nostalgia swept over me.   As a newcomer to Williamstown  in 1988, I soon learned that the town had it's own newspaper and it was free. I picked up a copy of the Advocate in a restaurant one night when my husband Bill and I dined out.

Mark Maloy presented the study on Thursday to the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshires have been losing population at a rate of 450 per year and when the baby boomers start to die off, that number will accelerate.

BRPC Planner Mark Maloy presented a study Thursday night showing that the county has a gap in the age bracket behind the baby boomers worse than state and national averages.

Thus, at this rate, when 2030 comes, the population is expected to be 12,420 people fewer — a number he feels is manageable but one towns should be aware of and set plans to curb.

"Really the only thing to do is to change that migration pattern,"

Attorney Donald Dubendorf, left, addresses the Zoning Board of Appeals about the Clark Art's no longer temporary parking. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday night approved the Clark Art Institute's plan to make permanent its employee parking lot on North Street.   The South Street museum in 2010 was granted permission to use the lot at 101 North St. as temporary, seasonal parking during the large-scale renovation currently under way at the Clark.   The temporary usage of the auxiliary parking lot was set to expire in October of this year, but the Clark came to the Zoning Board Thursday to ask permission to keep using the off-campus
