NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Authorities are investigating a disturbing incident that occurred early Wednesday morning at Brayton Hill Apartments.   According to Facebook posts made by friends and neighbors of the victim, someone smeared feces over her door and air conditioner and left a pile on her deck.    The victim, a single black woman with small children who is not being named, told friends that there had been a loud party in the apartment next door on Tuesday night and a racial slur could be heard repeatedly. That has lead some to believe that it could be a hate crime.   The perpetrator was reportedly caught on video by security cameras at the housing complex

The program engaged General Dynamics and is eyed to line up the job training programs with the needs of the company.   "There are manufacturing jobs. Everybody thinks it is just engineering. That is a big push of mine and I'm not seeing it at the state level. We've got to get some of the money out of Workforce
