State Sen. Benjamin B. Downing kicked off his re-election campaign Monday night at Spice Dragon with St. Patrick's Day flavor.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — At age 24, Benjamin B. Downing stood on the steps of City Hall with a speech he rehearsed dozens of times to announce his candidacy for the open state Senate seat.

Eight years later, and seeing yet another term come to an end, he looked back on that speech and focused on a Bill Clinton quote he had altered: "It it our job not only to build a bridge to the 21st century but make sure that every one in every corner of the Berkshires and the commonwealth has the opportunity to cross that bridge."

He thought of the $90 million

North Adams second-grader Emma Dupuis bowls during the family fun afternoon Saturday at Greylock Bowl and Golf.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Sometimes the best way to raise funds is to drop the "ds."

That was the theory anyway behind the Northern Berkshire YMCA's "fun"-raising events Saturday at Greylock Bowl and Golf. From 2 to 4 p.m., families were invited to come bowl, have a hot dog lunch and play corn hole for a modest donation to the YMCA.

A dozen families took advantage of the indoor family fun on a chilly late winter day, and Northern Berkshire YMCA Executive Director Justin Ihne was happy to see that.

"This has been great," Ihne said as he

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When the Williamstown Community Chest asked the Williamstown Community Preschool for a helping hand, the school was only too happy to oblige.

Many, many times over.

Students at the preschool made a banner of colorful cutouts of all of their hands to give to the Chest to decorate Spring Street storefronts during the Chest's first-ever "Blitz Week," which runs March 15-22.

Those hands, in addition to works of art by students who attend the Williamstown Youth Center's programs, are now helping to get the word out that the Chest is closing in on its annual campaign goal but needs some help to reach it.

And they are making the students feel good,

Russia's attempted annexation of the Ukraine, China's internal economic woes, the less than auspicious enrollment numbers in Obama's health care initiative are just a few of the difficulties that the stock market has had to overcome this week. Given the news, stocks are hanging in there.

There's hardly a day goes by that someone, somewhere isn't calling a top to this market. The bears are doing their utmost to get a good old-fashioned rout going but investors by and large are ignoring their overtures. On down days, the volume dries up because most investors resist the temptation to sell. Only day traders appear willing to sell the market and even they are right back in

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — During January of 2005, several dozen members of the Williams College community helped to create a replica of the 13th century labyrinth inscribed on the floor of Chartres Cathedral — on a 36-foot-square expanse of portable canvas.

Since then, several times each academic year, for several days at a time, the labyrinth is spread out and available free of charge to the whole community for many kinds of meditative use.  This month it will be available during Holy Week, Monday through Saturday, April 14-19, in the Fellowship Hall of the First Congregational Church – an ideal reflective counterpoint to the escalating pace of this hectic season.

Craig Clemow and Catherine Yamamoto of Williamstown's Affordable Housing Committee read through one of the proposals to develop housing on town-owned land.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Affordable Housing Committee began its process of reviewing proposals on Thursday to develop two town-owned properties, and one clear theme emerged.

The panel has at least as many questions as answers about one of the proposals.   First the good news: Committee members were impressed with the degree of affordability proposed for units on both the former town garage site and former PhoTech mill property.   "One thing I was thrilled about for both proposals was that there was no
