Mount Greylock Regional School Committee members Robert Ericson, left, and David Langston found themselves once again on opposite sides of a question before the panel. Neither is standing for re-election on Nov. 4.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The wedge being driven between Williamstown's and Lanesborough's public schools may finally cause the split.

The Lanesborough School Committee is scheduled to vote on Wednesday whether to withdraw from the Superintendency Union 71 effective next June.

And it appears the commonwealth may approve of the dissolution effort.

The committee will also vote on speaking with other school districts about sharing a superintendent rather than joining

If investors needed proof that the market's bottom is in, this week provided it. It was the best week of the year in stock market gains and it looks like we have more on the way.

That's not to say we couldn't have another pullback, but it won't be to the levels we saw nine days ago. The S&P 500's 200 DMA is around 1.905. That would be the logical limit to a decline if traders wanted to do a little profit-taking, but I don't see much downside beyond that.

One catalyst that is providing support for the market is another good earnings season. Although there have been a few spectacular misses by some big technology companies, by and large, companies have beat

Get your Halloween on this weekend ... and prepare to party for a full week!

I admit, Halloween is not one of my favorite holidays. It always seems to rain (or snow, a la 2012) and my daughter STILL has to go trick or treating. I suck it up and take her because I was not allowed to trick or treat when I was a child. (My mom had her reasons; I've gotten over it.)

Then there's the candy ... oh, all that candy. Who needs it? Well, ironically, my daughter kind of does. As a child with type one diabetes, she chooses to treat low blood sugars with candy. Did you know Smarties have the same chemical makeup as the official diabetic-friendly glucose tabs - but taste much better? So we

Brian Herr, on the left, met with Republicans at Pittsfield campaign headquarters Thursday morning. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Brian Herr says U.S. Senator Edward Markey is disrespecting voters by dodging the campaign.   The Republican Herr is challenging Markey for the seat but the incumbent has done little to no campaigning. Only one debate between the two candidates has been held and the race has seen little interest across the state.    Herr says Markey's lack of a campaign is disrespectful because it doesn't give Massachusetts voters an opportunity to make up their minds. Markey's avoidance has also made it tougher for Herr to gain name recognition

Mid-term elections are less than two weeks away. Issues, for the most part, have fallen by the wayside as pure politics runs amuck. No wonder voter turnout is traditionally so poor in this midterm madness.

Republicans are running against an unpopular president and are expected to sweep both houses of Congress. All they have to do is keep the focus on President Obama while mobilizing their die-hard base.  That strategy appears to be highly effective so why worry about mundane things like issues? After all, if voters don't care, why should they?

Both parties' campaigns are now dictated by whatever voters are worrying about on a day-by-day basis.  The fear of an ebola

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Brad Pitt and his tank crew battle through the horrors of war in the World War II feature 'Fury.'

In the late 1960s, when it looked like I could wind up fighting in Vietnam, I imagined utter horrors of the sort director-writer David Ayers devastatingly delivers in his WWII opus, "Fury." This is terrible stuff, an adrenalin-exploding, mind-boggling journey through the evil dreads mankind is capable of perpetrating. So unless you're a military enthusiast or feel you need a reminder of why General William Tecumseh Sherman said "War is hell," then it might

The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee will discuss options for recruiting a new superintendent at Thursday's meeting, which begins at 7.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The chairman of the Mount Greylock Regional School Committee said she plans to discuss at Thursday night’s committee meeting whether the district and its partners should hire a recruiter to help with the search for a new superintendent.

Now that the Tri-District — a combination of Mount Greylock and Superintendency Union 71 — has decided to reopen its search in the spring, it may be time to bring in outside help to advertise the position to a broader pool of potential candidates, Carolyn Greene

Regina DiLego updated the other members of the School Committee on the superintendent search process. LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The school districts for Williamstown and Lanesborough won't have a permanent superintendent until at least July.   The superintendent search committee decided last week to recommend the district forgo its search for a replacement by Jan.1 for the retiring Rose Ellis.   The search committee was formed to sort applicants for recommendation after Ellis informed Mount Greylock Regional School District and Superintendency Union 71 she would retire at the end of the year.   "The pool was not as deep as we hoped," Regina DiLego, who

Dr. Marc Pettus, BMC's director of medical education and population health, told WAMC Northeast Public Radio on Wednesday that the funds would be used to create a multi-care center at the former North Adams Regional Hospital in early part of
