I've got Pownal on my mind.

I know, strange, right? It's a little town in the corner of Vermont. What's so special about Pownal?

This Saturday, July 26, the annual Pownal Valley Community Fair will be held behind the post office on Route 346, starting at 10 a.m. The fair features kids games, an exhibit hall, crafts and vendors, food for sale, horseshoe tournament and more. The day ends with fireworks at 9:30 p.m.

But more personally, my daughter and I just finished reading Williamstown author Elizabeth Winthrop's "Counting on Grace," a book about a girl in the early 1900s who has to work in a cotton mill in North Pownal. The book is inspired by a photo

Public Services Superintendent Timothy Lescarbeau said the new Hot Box and the Asphalt Recycler will greatly improve blacktopping in the city as well as save money.

"The recycler takes used asphalt … and reheats it; we throw some rejuvenator in it so we have our own hot mix basically," Lescarbeau said. "In the hot box you put the mix in, and there is a burner in

New Town Administrator Carl McKinney is in a different seat at the table after nearly a dozen years as a selectman.

Expected to start in August, McKinney stepped into the post

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- The die was cast early for the North Adams SteepleCats on Tuesday night.   The 'Cats were given a golden opportunity to score in their first turn at bat, and they could not convert that chance or any others in a 4-0 New England Collegiate Baseball League loss to the Laconia, N.H., at Joe Wolfe Field.   "First inning, we have a runner on third, nobody out, and we strike out three straight times without even making contact," North Adams coach Chris Cates said. "The lack of execution -- that completely turns a ballgame around.   "We get a run there, and we're up 1-0 with our all-star pitcher on the mound, who has already beaten

An 'injured' student is attended to by an EMT at a mock emergency drill on Monday morning, part of the North Adams Public School's summer science camp.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A visitor to Northern Berkshire YMCA on Monday morning might have been alarmed to see young children swathed in bandages and "bleeding" behind the building. 

Not to worry. The children were taking turns on how to react to a real crisis — such as falling off their bikes — fake blood and all.

The second-graders were participating in the school district's 21st Century Community Learning Center Summer Science Camp. And they loaded classmates onto stretchers as a
