The Williams Inn is expected to change hands in the near future.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The future of the Williams Inn may lie in the hands of Williams College.

"The college is currently in discussion with the Faulkners about purchasing the Inn,"  Frederick Puddester, the college's vice president for finance and administration and treasurer, said last week.

The hotel maybe closed if the college is successful in developing a boutique hotel on Spring Street.

And after almost 25 years as owners and operators of the 100-room inn, Carl and Marilyn Faulkner have announced that they plan to retire soon.

"Both Marilyn and I are in our 70s and we need to think

This month, she moved her operation out of Berkshire Direct's offices and east on Route 2 to 187 Main St., where she occupies a building shared by Ann Marie Michaels Bookkeeping and Westall Architects.

Interest rates have been on a downward path for almost 30 years. In May of last year, thanks to the Fed's taper talk, that direction has reversed. This week it was revealed that some Fed officials are actually discussing when to hike interest rates.

The discussion took place late last month during the Federal Open Market Committee meeting presided over by the new Fed chairwoman, Janet Yellen. Like her predecessor, Ben Bernanke, Yellen appears in no hurry to raise short term interest rates and has told the markets as much. Most investors, guided by past Federal Reserve comments, are not expecting a hike in interest rates until the middle of next year at the earliest.

So why discuss it

The Cable Mills project is expected to break ground this spring, 10 years after being first permitted.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday greenlighted two large-scale housing projects that will add more than 100 residences to the town of 4,325.

In a marathon meeting, the ZBA approved plans for the Highland Woods senior housing project off Southworth Street and reapproved the development of the Cable Mills lot on Water Street.

The Cable Mills project came before the zoning board for the third time. It was previously permitted in 2004 and 2007, but each time plans to develop housing in the mill complex fell through.

"Basically, it's a

Preparations are under way for professional snocross racing in North Adams this Saturday and Sunday. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Florida's Nickolas Keating cannot think of a better way to spend his weekend than zipping through the woods on his snowmobile.   Except maybe zipping through the manmade hills created at The Range for this weekend's East Coast Snocross event.   "The adrenaline rush was something I never experienced before — even owning a dirt bike and racing it for six years," Keating said. "It's more intense for me anyway. I just think about it and my blood pressure rises."   The event is being brought to North Adams by

Are you there, God? It's me, Rebecca.

Please God, don't make it snow on Monday. Or Tuesday. Or any other school day before July. And please God, don't make it so cold that even if it's not snowing it hurts to go outside. Or raining so that everything turns to ice. Or all of the above. All at once. It's New England, after all.

Everything that can be done in the house has been done. Kids are stir crazy and cranky. Parents are short­-tempered  and cranky. If I have to watch another ice-­dancing routine on my living room floor, I'll be completely twizzled. If I have to play another game of "Operation," I'll need to be hospitalized.

I know,
