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

Just one abutter raised questions about the proposal at the board's public hearing. The owner of the nearby Cozy Corner Motel told the panel he was concerned about the look of the large-scale

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

Auditor Suzanne Bump of Great Barrington is running for re-election. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — In her efforts to modernize the auditor's office, Suzanne Bump has found some $400 million in misspent taxpayer money.   Bump is now running for re-election so she can continue her efforts both through auditing various state departments and improving the auditor's office.   "We made a deliberate focus on the quality of our work and not the quantity. With the audits we've done, we identified an unprecedented amount of broken systems, misspending and potential fraud and abuse. In fact $400 million worth," Bump said on Friday.   Most notable of Bump's

Mount Greylock Regional School Committee members Robert Ericson, left, and David Langston found themselves once again on opposite sides of a question before the panel. Neither is standing for re-election on Nov. 4.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The wedge being driven between Williamstown's and Lanesborough's public schools may finally cause the split.

The Lanesborough School Committee is scheduled to vote on Wednesday whether to withdraw from the Superintendency Union 71 effective next June.

And it appears the commonwealth may approve of the dissolution effort.

The committee will also vote on speaking with other school districts about sharing a superintendent rather than joining

If investors needed proof that the market's bottom is in, this week provided it. It was the best week of the year in stock market gains and it looks like we have more on the way.

That's not to say we couldn't have another pullback, but it won't be to the levels we saw nine days ago. The S&P 500's 200 DMA is around 1.905. That would be the logical limit to a decline if traders wanted to do a little profit-taking, but I don't see much downside beyond that.

One catalyst that is providing support for the market is another good earnings season. Although there have been a few spectacular misses by some big technology companies, by and large, companies have beat

Get your Halloween on this weekend ... and prepare to party for a full week!

I admit, Halloween is not one of my favorite holidays. It always seems to rain (or snow, a la 2012) and my daughter STILL has to go trick or treating. I suck it up and take her because I was not allowed to trick or treat when I was a child. (My mom had her reasons; I've gotten over it.)

Then there's the candy ... oh, all that candy. Who needs it? Well, ironically, my daughter kind of does. As a child with type one diabetes, she chooses to treat low blood sugars with candy. Did you know Smarties have the same chemical makeup as the official diabetic-friendly glucose tabs - but taste much better? So we
