Sheriff Bowler wants to inform the Community of a current phone scam that has been going on. Just as recent as today, we have received phone calls from concerned residents who were contacted by a Captain Paul Jones and Captain Brandon Mitchell of the Berkshire County Sheriff’s Office Civil Office.

These residents were informed that they were being contacted due to a warrant for their arrest and to please contact the Civil Office at 413-443-6841 with the caller I.D. Number not matching that.

Sheriff Bowler wants to remind the Community that we do not contact you if you have a warrant for your arrest. He also wants to remind the Community that if a number is calling you that you do not recognize, let it go to voicemail. These individuals who take part in these scams tend to target the elderly and the last thing we want to see is someone get hurt from these scams. Please be safe and take care of each other.

Broadband Survey - Williamstown, MA

The Williamstown 2020 Annual Street Listing will be mailed to all Williamstown residents this week. The census is arequirement of the Massachusetts General Law and it is important that all residents return them to the Town Clerk’s office promptly. Failure to respond to the census will result in removal from the active voting list and may result in removal from the voter registration rolls.

Included in the mailing is a Broadband Survey, as Williamstown is considering the installation of a municipally-owned fiber optic network. The survey can either be returned with your Street List or can be completed online at williamstownma.gov/broadband.

Residents should not use the census form for the purpose of voter registration. Any resident who is not registered to vote may register by going to the Town Clerk’s office or by mailing a voter registration form to the Town Clerk’s office.

Parents of college students or member of the military who are registered voters in Williamstown should be aware that by deleting those children from their census form will remove them from the active voters list. Also, households that have dependent children in them, but that are not listed on your census form should add their children to the form and complete the information that pertains to each child. Information regarding the children is not a public record and is used only by the schools for enrollment purposes

All forms should either be mailed back in the enclosed return envelope or dropped off in the Town Clerk’s office. Anyone who does not receive their census form in the mail within the next two weeks or who has questions pertaining to the form should call Town Clerk Mary C. Kennedy at the Town Hall at 458-9341.

“He had the utmost respect for people in the line of duty. As a judge he respected them very, very much. We are just honored it could go to someone like that.”

Lee Police Department Chief Jeffrey Roosa was diagnosed with ALS on September 5, 2017. On September 5, 2019 retired Springfield District Court Judge Bill Boyle died after a difficult battle with the disease.

Today, Judge Boyle’s family donated his wheelchair accessible bus to Chief Roosa.

Congratulations, Trooper Canata!

Congratulations to Trooper Andrew Canata of the Massachusetts State Police Troop B School Safety Team, who was among the honorees at a recent Northern Berkshire Community Coalition ceremony that recognized citizens, civic groups, and emergency responders. Trooper Canata is integrally involved with the "Stop the Bleed" program that trains local teachers and school staff in how to respond to emergencies involving bleeding injuries. The Community Recognition Award presented to Trooper Canata recognized him for "being involved with keeping our schools safe and preparing for emergencies, as well as for training teachers and staff in emergency bleeding control." Trooper Canata (left) is pictured here with Sgt. Brian Clapprood, who also serves on the School Safety Team. Well done!

Electric power was out on at least Hancock Road and Oblong Road Wednesday night, June 27, from about 10:45 to 2:15 a.m. What was the cause? Was it more widespread than those two roads? Would appreciate any information. Thanks.
On the missing hiker, posted in reply to your notice Williamstown Police Department, Massachusetts did you folks receive the tip to check the Cariddi Mill in North Adams? A gentleman on a hiking page said he's seen a man every day similar in description for the past couple of weeks there. Hope he is OK!
Whatever happened to the couple that ran down Cheryl LeClaire while walking her dog in Williamstown and then tried to cover up their involvement? John Gould and Sally Gould. Last I checked, she was still in a coma over a year later.
