Interim Superintendent Gordon Noseworthy talks budget numbers at a public hearing of the Mount Greylock Regional School District fiscal 2016 spending plan in Lanesborough. LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Monday took some flack over its proposed fiscal 2016 budget — mostly from residents who said the committee has cut too far.   The committee and administration laid out a proposed spending plan that raises the school's operating budget by .85 percent — an $88,586 bump on a budget of more than $10.4 million.   Given a number of fixed-cost increases, including a significant rise in health insurance costs, the miniscule

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Williamstown Elementary School is not facing the draconian cuts other districts confront heading into fiscal 2016, but it is not immune to the financial realities either.   At Wednesday's School Committee meeting, it was announced that the school is cutting its world language program for FY16.   For several years, Xiahong Wan has introduced Mandarin to primary students at the elementary school, but her position did not make the cut in the budget that was presented at Wednesday's public hearing.   "We feel we still can have an enrichment program and work it into social studies," interim Superintendent Gordon Noseworthy told the

The former Our Lady of Mercy is being renovated into four high-end apartment units. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — In a few months, four high-end rental units inside the former Our Lady of Mercy church on State Road will be hitting the housing market.   Scarafoni Associates purchased the church last summer to repurpose it for residential use.   The 1916 building has a solid concrete foundation, steel roof, and thick walls allowing the company to retrofit the inside into unique housing while maintaining the exterior mostly as it has been.   "We think these buildings need to be saved," said David Carver of Scarafoni Associates on Friday.

"Neither of our guys going today got what they ultimately wanted, but they can really be proud of their finish, both for themselves, and for the program."   In the Saturday morning semifinal round,

Part of the lobby of the Tyler Picture Palace is all that's left of the Morningside icon. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — "Popular Pictures Properly Projected," read the big sign on the back of the building, a landmark in Pittsfield's Morningside neighborhood for nearly 50 years.    "If you could say them fast, it was considered in Morningside that you were cold sober," Pittsfield resident Jane Krook said of the slogan in 1950.   Indeed, Krook said, these were the first words her daughter ever learned to speak as a child, offering up but one anecdote of a place that for many was steeped in the special memories of formative

It was a turbulent week for U.S. stocks as the strong dollar and worries over possible rising interest rates spooked investors. But not all markets followed our lead. This divergence could be the beginning of a trend that could benefit your portfolio.

Normally, the American stock market is the big dog that wags the tail in international markets. When U.S. averages decline, foreign markets fall with them and vice versa. "De-coupling" occurs when the opposite happens like it did this week.
