James Canavan and Mary Grant bid farewell to friends, colleagues, students and partners at the Amsler Campus Center on Thursday night.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Mary Grant lingered at the podium, delaying another step that would take her away from the college she's loved so much.

"I don't exactly know how to wrap up," she said to a who's who of community and educational leaders who gave her a standing ovation at the MCLA Amsler Campus Center on Thursday night. "I'm never really at a loss for words. Maybe it's just hard to think about about leaving this stage and this place.

"And it is."

The crowd was there to bid farewell to MCLA's

I don't think anyone gets Halloween off from work or school, but somehow it feels like a three-day weekend, doesn't it?

First off, if you're going trick-or-treating Friday night, stay safe. I'm sure you know the drill but here are some tips just in case you want a reminder.

You might as well keep the Halloween fun going into the evening of Saturday, Nov. 1.  Starting at 5 p.m., the Mason Library in Great Barrington is hosting a free Community Halloween Party. The kids party starts at 5 p.m. with "spirited" storytelling by Tim Van Egmond, a folksinger and storyteller who performs throughout New England. Devilish pizza and creepy cupcakes follow from 6

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Selectmen on Wednesday signed a long-term contract with Time Warner Cable.

The regional agreement is for 10 years — but seniors only have two days to apply for a monthly discount included in the contract.

"Ultimately what's going to happen is they are expecting Comcast to buy them out," Town Administrator Carl McKinney said. "But Comcast will honor the discount only if they sign up by Nov. 1."

In other business, McKinney said the town is looking into a dumping area off East Road.

"The woods are littered like a dump," he said, including car parts, heating oil tanks, tires, lawn mowers and a broken down shed. There is

Maps of the proposed bike trail route will be reviewed at a public information on Wednesday evening at Greylock School.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city is laying down plans for a bike path in the West End.

The trail would run from downtown to the city's western border on Route 2, cutting mainly through municipal properties.

The approximately 3-mile route would line up with another 2.5 miles in Williamstown near Galvin Road.

"I think the route is really cool," Mayor Richard Alcombright said in a presentation prior to Tuesday's City Council meeting. "It takes in some city assets that weren't talked about several years ago."
