By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com
03:10PM / Saturday, April 09, 2022
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. – Six months after the Williamstown Select Board found itself unable to offer the town manager job to either of two candidates, it wanted to give the job to both finalists.   But forced to make a choice, the board Saturday afternoon decided to offer the post to Gloucester native Robert Menicocci, who finished ahead “by a nose” in the minds of the board members.   In a 5-0 vote, the board authorized Chair Andy Hogeland to enter negotiations with Menicocci but also authorized Hogeland to pivot to negotiations with runner-up Alex Torpey if, for any reason, the talks with Menicocci do not bear fruit.   “The way I felt was that if either

08:10AM / Saturday, April 09, 2022
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Brothers James and Eddie Brannan have achieved the rank of Eagle Scouts, the town's first since 2017.   According to a press release, since its establishment in 1911, only 4 percent of Scouts have earned Eagle rank, the organization's highest accomplishment. The rank is awarded after a lengthy review.   As part of the process, each completed a community-based project. James's Eagle Scout project was to rehabilitate a long-neglected courtyard at Herberg Middle School in Pittsfield. He also built two new raised planters for use by the school community.   "My mom teaches at Herberg so she suggested the idea to me," James said.
