Raising a child is expensive. That's why, since I've become a parent, I've gotten cheap. As in, I don't pay full price for anything for my daughter. The most expensive thing I've recently bought for her is a clearance sundress at the new Ocean State Job Lot in North Adams. It was $8 and I cringed at that.   Yes, clearance racks are gold mines for me, but there is another option: local fundraising used clothing and toy sales. And there are several this weekend worth checking out.   First is the now-once-a-year sale at Williamstown Elementary School on Saturday, Sept. 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the school's gymnasium. As a WES parent, I have seen

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
   'Getaway' shows off every car chase special effect available in 90 minutes. One advantage of being a film critic, especially pertinent in the case of Courtney Solomon's furiously turbulent "Getaway," is that you get to see movies you'd never pay to see. All of which is my cute excuse for succumbing to the tastes and curiosity of the 15-year-old me. Truth be told, no one had to twist my stick-shifting arm to see this flimsy excuse for a feature-length car chase.   Rarely stopping to take a breath, perhaps afraid that we'd catch up and see it for

The facilities crew gets a round of applause for their efforts on Tuesday at MCLA's traditional opening breakfast.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Two words have been haunting the opening breakfasts at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts for years: Science center.

The words reflected at first a vision, then a hope, a plan, a location and, finally, a physical reality.

While the crowd at this year's breakfast in the Amsler Campus Center couldn't see the four-story building across the campus, the knowledge it was there lent a sense of satisfaction to the proceedings.

"Please wipe your feet," said President Mary Grant on inviting the college community

Charles O'Brien holds his newest historical mystery, 'Death of a Robber Baron,' set partially in a Gilded Age 'Berkshire Cottage.'

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — After writing nine historical mysteries in the Anne Cartier Series, set in 18th century France and England, mystery writer Charles O'Brien has shifted to Gilded Age America with the just published "Death of a Robber Baron."

The first of a trilogy, "Death of a Robber Baron" takes place in 1893 in the Berkshires and New York and features a new sleuth, Pamela Thompson.

When O'Brien's mother gave him a classic novel to read at the age of 9, neither of them had an inkling of how it

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 2. Memorial Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities. By some estimates, at least half the work force
