STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — In the days following the War for Independence, he came to be one of the most celebrated African-American Berkshirites of his time, yet sadly his name is not particularly well known to locals today.

"Agrippa Hull was one of the most remarkable and unnoticed African Americans of the revolutionary

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — In the first part of the 20th century, Claude Flight and his disciples were doing some cutting edge work.

Literally.

Flight is an innovator and leader of a short-lived boom of linocut printmakers that thrived in London in the 1920s and '30s.

He and his contemporaries are celebrated in the Clark Art Institute's exhibit "Machine Age Modernism," on view in the Clark Center through May 17.

The trust's goal is to create one or more owner-occupied dwellings that would be perpetually affordable for residents at a given income level.   Five landowners submitted proposals, although one was not considered because it did not include an offering price as required under the terms of the recent request for

This spring, community coalitions from across the county have joined forces to host the biannual prescription drug take back day on Saturday, April 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be seven locations across the county.

Anyone with unused, unwanted and expired prescription, over-the-counter and controlled medications should stop by to dispose of them safely. Personal use needles are accepted, but only in puncture proof plastic containers. Because the aim is to collect prescriptions, the locations cannot accept thermometers, IV bags, blood or infectious waste, nebulizers, and oxygen tanks.

For northern Berkshire County, the Rx Round Up will occur at the Adams Police Station, the North

Today marks the 45th anniversary of the first Earth Day celebration – a day that many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement. More than 20 million people participated in that 1970 celebration and those efforts eventually lead to the formation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Endangered Species Acts a few years later.

In 1975, the General Court created the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Quality Engineering – the precursor of today's Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) – and built upon a healthy state, community and citizen partnership that still protects our natural
