Williamstown Select Board Favors Investigation of Police Lawsuit Allegations
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:04AM / Wednesday, January 06, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board on Monday agreed to pursue an independent investigation into allegations of racism and sexual misconduct in the Police Department.   But it struggled with how that investigation and a parallel effort to re-envision policing in the town of 7,700 will fit into a timeline for replacing the chief of police.   The board held a special meeting to gather for the first time since mid-December announcements that then-Chief Kyle Johnson was resigning and the plaintiff in a lawsuit raising those allegations was dismissing the action. The panel faced a number of complicated questions embedded in its single-item agenda, which advertised a discussion

BRIEF: Williamstown Conducting Annual Census
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:37PM / Monday, January 04, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As required by state law, the town this week will send residents an annual street census form to complete for 2021.   The town clerk Monday reminded residents that failure to respond to the census will result in their removal from the active voting list and "may result in removal from the voter registration rolls."   That said, the census is not a means to register to vote, Town Clerk Nicole Pedercini noted. Anyone interested in registering to vote can do so by going through the secretary of state's website or downloading a form from that website and returning the completed form to the town clerk.   The town's annual Street

Thief Makes Off With Louison House Donations
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
08:24PM / Wednesday, December 30, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — An opportunistic burglar made off with Louison House donations worth a $1,000 or more, along with a sleeping bag and coats early Tuesday morning.   Executive Director Kathy Keeser said the theft was discovered Tuesday when a staff member entered the office at Flood House on Church Street to find the stack of mail she'd picked up the day before was missing. She speculated that the burglar saw cards and donation envelopes in the mail and thought they could get some quick cash.    But there would not have been any cash. The envelopes would have contained checks made out to Louison House — and those can't be cashed since they're

Mount Greylock School Committee Talks about Long-Term COVID Costs
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:37PM / Tuesday, December 29, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock School Committee last week talked about the toll that last classroom time is having on learners and the financial cost the district might incur to fill some of the learning gaps.   Committee member Jose Constantine pointed to some dire national statistics about the effect of teaching in a remote or hybrid model and asked whether the Lanesborough-Williamstown schools were seeing similar consequences from the COVID-19 pandemic.   While the major decision from the committee's last 2020 meeting was a move to address perceived physical education and co-curricular needs, students' academic needs consumed more time during the 4

Williamstown Year in Review 2020: Police, Pandemic, Pot
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:19AM / Monday, December 28, 2020

Residents of the neighborhood called Colonial Village led a movement to strike that name and strike the racist covenants that were part of the deeds on their properties. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — There was a global pandemic that reached into the North Berkshire town and claimed more than a dozen lives in two months' time.   There was a four-hour town meeting dedicated mostly to a contentious issue that could not be resolved that night and sparked debates that continued throughout the year and beyond.   And neither was the top story in Williamstown in 2020.   Even as the national conversation was dominated by a new public health crisis, an old, intractable societal

Veteran Spotlight: Sgt. McCarthy
By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
04:37PM / Sunday, December 27, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — An absolute pleasure to interview for this week's Veteran's Spotlight feature was Richard "Dick" McCarthy.   McCarthy served his country as a sergeant in the Army in the Vietnam War from 1966 to 1968.    His basic training was at Fort Dix, N.J., before he shipped out first to Alaska from McGuire Air Force Base.   "We were drinking at a bar and this civilian who was working on the pipeline was bombed and said he wanted to go with us to Vietnam," said McCarthy, than laughed. "We wrapped him in an overcoat and snuck him on the plane. ... The pilot said he didn't have to pay for his flight over but had to pay
