Williamstown Man Sentenced in Child Sex Abuse Case
06:39PM / Monday, August 15, 2016

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A local man was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Springfield in connection with persuading a 16-year-old boy to travel to New York three years ago to engage in sexual activity.

Ronald S. Brown, 53, was sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Mark G. Mastroianni to 15 years in prison and 10 years of supervised release.

Brown, a registered sex offender based upon a prior conviction for a sexual assault of a 14-year-old, engaged in thousands

Williamstown Using New Technique on Hancock Road Paving
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:45AM / Monday, August 15, 2016

A road sign alerts motorists on Hancock Road (Route 43) to a paving project this month.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town paving project that began last week on Hancock Road will look a little different than residents are used to — at least while it is progressing.

For the first time, Williamstown is using a cold-in-place recycling technique that will result in a brief period when the road looks kind of paved but not really finished, Town Manager Jason Hoch explained last week.

"At the end of the project, it will look and feel like any other road," Hoch said. "But there's this sort of interim phase — it's that 'near-pavement' look.

Hancock Resident Having Fun With Politics, Launches Mock Presidential Campaign
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:35AM / Monday, August 15, 2016
HANCOCK, Mass. — A Polish proverb reads, "not my monkeys, not my circus" to essentially mean, it's not my problem.   For years that's how Hancock resident Barry Grauman has felt about politics. He's been an active voter, intent to make it to the polls every time. But, he's never liked his choices. He says he was voting out of hate, voting against a candidate and not for one he likes. He's sick of that, though, and he is trying to make it his circus.   Grauman has launched a mock presidential campaign. It is one of humor where his stance on gun control is "I feel that whenever I am around guns, I prefer they are under

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Community Preschool began sprucing up its new home by hiring local sign maker Lindsay Neathawk, owner of Neathawk Signs and Design, to create a 3D sign for the business.

Neathawk installed the sign late Monday afternoon that features multicolored hand prints from the children as the leaves of a tree poking out of the top. Underneath the name and address "a place to grow" is written. The children's hand prints were taken at the school and Neathawk then scanned them into her design programs to create the sign.
