It's time to release the ghouls and goblins onto the streets in search of treats. The state fire marshal has offered fire safety tips for celebrating Halloween.

 

Costumes

* Children should carry a flashlight and their costumes should be bright-colored or have reflective tape to highlight them.

* Be sure all parts of the costume are labeled flame retardant.

* Costumes should not have trailing material or tails long enough to cause falls.

* Pointed objects such as swords and devils’ forks should be made of soft material.

* If your child wears a mask instead of make-up on their face, double check that the eye holes are large enough to see through clearly.

Stetson Court will be the location of the college's first dormitory in nearly a half century.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When Williams College first opened its doors to students in 1793, only 65 boys were enrolled.

Now it has a diverse population of approximately 2,100 housed in dormitories and small houses around the campus.

Of the more than 30 student residences, West College, constructed in 1791-1793, is the oldest dormitory. Tyler Annex, built in 1972, is the newest.

Williams is planning to add its first new dormitory in 42 years and has selected Stetson Court for its location.

Mount Greylock School Committee Chairwoman Carrie Greene told the Selectmen that the town will save money with regionalization.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — School officials want voters to decide if the regional school district should be expanded to include the elementary school.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Police Department is investigating a series of break-ins at businesses on Water Street and Main Street that occurred late Friday or early Saturday morning.

Town Manager Peter Fohlin was asked about the crime spree at Monday's meeting of the Board of Selectmen.

"I didn't mention it [in the Town Manager's Report] because I don't usually comment on cases under investigation," Fohlin said in response to a question from Selectman Hugh Daley. "But what you said is true. Chief [Kyle] Johnson tells me they have a person of interest."

According to reports received by iBerkshires.com, businesses affected by the break-ins include

Opening a savings account with your local bank may provide an easy way to put money away for safekeeping, but the thought of doing more can be tempting.  

While your money will earn a small rate of interest with a savings account, you may want to consider an “investing” program that can potentially earn more from the money you put away.  If investing is something that piques your interest, but you’re not quite sure where to begin, consider two of the most basic types of investments — stocks and bonds.

In the very simplest terms, a share of stock represents a portion of ownership in a company.  While it may seem hard to imagine that you could

Kirsten Kapteyn presents Mount Greylock teacher Bob Thistle with the James C. Kapteyn Prize.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Bob Thistle could be a prima donna.

As the curriculum leader of the math department at Mount Greylock Regional School, he could reserve the honors and Advanced Placement classes for himself

Instead, the veteran teacher has taught every class the high school has to offer and every level of student.

And that dedication to educating every child makes Thistle a leader, an example and a winner of the 2014 James C. Kapteyn Prize for excellence in education.

Thistle was presented the award, which comes with a $10,000 prize, on Sunday afternoon in a ceremony attended by

Marilyn Sperling was presented the Community Leader Award at Berkshire County Kids Place's celebration fundraiser.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Eight-year-old Andrew's family life was one of violence. Kasey, also 8, was sexually abused by her stepfather, young Caleb by his uncle.

Their stories and those of other children exposed to abuse and violence were the reason for the sold-out gala at the Crowne Plaza on Friday night.

"It's very difficult to be able to explain to you about what Berkshire County Kids Place does — or to show you," Program Director Chrisa Collier said.

With the help of artist Sally Tiska Rice, some of the more than 350 children helped this
