Investors began to focus on events in Ukraine this week as a continuing stalemate between Russia and the West erupted in gunfire. That bloodshed stopped the market dead in its tracks. The question is, for how long?

Up until now, the dispute over Ukrainian territory has been largely a war of words and an excuse to take the occasional profit every now and then. Investors are worried that might change. Here's what we know.

The international agreement forged in Geneva a week ago has broken down with both sides crying foul. We also know that several pro-Russian militants were shot dead at a roadside checkpoint on in an eastern Ukrainian city of Slovyansk on Thursday. It was result of the

Letters: Selectmen's Vote Prompted Resignations

To the Editor:

Our recent resignations from the Williamstown Affordable Housing Committee, after a combined 30 years of service, were made with deep regret.

The Selectmen's April 15 vote not to follow the unanimous recommendation of the AHC to make full use of both town-owned sites for affordable housing, as called for in the RFP the Selectmen themselves sent out, was a decision we could not support. That vote, and other actions taken and not taken by the Selectmen, prompted our resignations.  

We hope that in the future, our Selectmen will show more resolve in addressing Williamstown's housing inequities.

Sincerely yours,

Charles Bonenti

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The power of positive thinking was in full force on Friday morning at BFAIR's annual breakfast meeting.

Mount Greylock officials are still struggling with how to determine enrollment figures for a new school project. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Wednesday once again tackled the question of how big the junior-senior high school should be.   This time, the venue was a meeting of the body's Education Policy Subcommittee, but the afternoon session drew six of the seven members of the full School Committee.   At its April 14 meeting, the committee tasked the subcommittee with further study of an issue that has split the full committee this spring: whether the district wants to continue allowing school choice and tuition students,
