Union members continue to occupy the dining room in the now closed cafeteria.

Lanesborough Selectman Robert Ericson discusses the impact of school choice and tuition students on Mount Greylock's budget. LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — A town-commissioned enrollment projection for Mount Greylock Regional School does not differ drastically from the projections the School Committee and Massachusetts School Building Authority are using.   But that fact alone does not change the opinion of some Lanesborough officials that the district should consider building or renovating a smaller junior-senior high school.   The Lanesborough Board of Selectmen on Thursday sponsored what it billed as a "consensus building" session to evaluate the enrollment

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — With the potential closing of the North Adams Regional Hospital, local emergency services are preparing for extra duties.

First responders have been meeting to discuss possible plans to combat the extra services they may need to provide.

Without a local hospital, ambulance services must travel much farther to bring patients to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield or Southwestern Vermont Medical Center in Bennington, Vt. This will slow down ambulance turnaround times.

The Ambulatory Care Center, built in 2001, is owned and operated by a private company and is not affected by the closure. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Things were a little busier than usual at Northern Berkshire Pediatrics on Wednesday.   The good news is that the staff expects things to continue to be busy there for a good long time.   "We are getting a ton of calls," Northern Berkshire Pediatrics Practice Manager Susan King said on Wednesday evening.
