The Selectmen hold up town flag submissions for the folks watching on television at home.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Board of Selectmen on Monday directed town officials to install new signage to help increase traffic safety on Bee Hill Road.

The board addressed the South Williamstown road in response to a concern raised by a resident about the danger to pedestrians posed by vehicles using Bee Hill as a "shortcut" between the Mohawk Trail (Route 2) and Cold Spring Road (Route 7).

Selectmen Andrew Hogeland asked that the issue be put on the agenda for Monday's meeting, and the board's two longest serving selectmen both noted that the issue is not new.

Juniors Noah Chicoine and James Morandi spoke about how the charter school had helped them achieve academically.

ADAMS, Mass. — At BArT, the growth on the outside is only the tip of the iceberg.

The Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School is understandably excited about the building expansion that will give the 10-year-old Grades 6-12 school a dedicated gymnasium, cafeteria and auditorium.

The growth that matters is seen in student body. And that is the expansion the school celebrated on Friday morning at its fifth annual Fall Breakfast.

"We've had many years of very high growth levels," Principal

LENOX, Mass. — Aid to cities and town's won't be cut in order to close a gap in the state budget.   The governor proposed cuts last week by some $25 million to help close a budget gap, heavily influenced by the triggered reduction of income taxes.   The unrestricted aid would drop to fiscal 2014 levels, which Gov. Deval Patrick had originally proposed.   But House of Representatives officials won't bring that to a vote.   "Understanding the vital role cities and towns play in providing services and jobs, I will not support a reduction of unrestricted local aid," said Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo in a statement Thursday
