Thought for the day 

“Kindnesses are easily forgotten; but injuries! what worthy man does not keep those in mind?” — WILLIAM MAKEPEACE THACKERAY, English author (born this date in 1811, died 1863)

The Greeting

A juvenile black bear walks through the front yard of a home on Frenier Avenue in Williamstown on Friday. According to MassWildlife, black bears spend more time in residential areas when they find food there. Bears that have become accustomed to bird seed, trash, and pet food, are likely to cause damage and become a nuisance. Removal of food sources and other attractants is key to preventing problems with bears.
