The problem? The lack of safe, fun, convenient places for single people to find potential partners. The solution? BerkshireFlirt, which seeks to connect Berkshire singles through events and social networking.

The creative minds behind BerkshireFlirt are, not surprisingly, creative people. Noel

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Board of Selectmen on Monday finalized a contract to appoint retired Town Manager Peter Fohlin as interim town manager and appointed Public Works Director Tim Kaiser as acting town manager during Fohlin's one-month absence.   Fohlin retired from the position effective Sunday, and Massachusetts law does not allow him to return to work for the town within a month of his retirement date.   So even though Fohlin has agreed to return on an interim basis until a permanent successor is hired, Kaiser will temporarily be the final authority on town affairs on a day-to-day basis.   Not that Kaiser expects to throw his weight around too

Agrippa Hull, a Revolutionary veteran, was a well-known resident and landowner in Stockbridge.

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.
