Town Manager Peter Fohlin is proposing the town cover the $10,000 cost to operate the Little Red Schoolhouse as a home for the Williamstown Historical Museum.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Little Red Schoolhouse and a larger than anticipated school budget were on the minds of the town's Finance Committee on Wednesday night.

The committee held its second round of detailed analysis of the town's proposed fiscal 2016 budget, and while the panel had a few questions about the cost centers under review, two items not on the agenda sparked the most discussion.   The first was the Mount Greylock Regional School budget request, which was approved by the School Committee on Tuesday

However, this is going to be a companion bill with what is happening on the federal level to ensure that

Cutting the purple ribbon to open BArT's brand-new addition on Wednesday morning. ADAMS, Mass. — Jeannette Lambert of North Adams played a big part in Wednesday morning's ceremonies at the Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School.   Lambert did the honors of cutting the ceremonial ribbon as the school unveiled its $4.5 million, two-story addition to students, staff and invited guests.   But unlike most of the students shivering in the school's parking lot to watch the festivities, Lambert will not be spending a whole lot of time in that addition.   As a member of BArT's senior class, she'll be moving on in a few months. Still,

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Tuesday voted unanimously to send a budget to both its member towns with assessments that are higher than either town has signaled it wants to pay.   On a vote of 6-0, the committee agreed to submit a preliminary fiscal year 2016 budget with a 2.61 increase from the fiscal 2015 budget. That is the budget that will be considered at a pair of public hearings — at Lanesborough Elementary School on March 16 and at Mount Greylock in March 17.   The 2.61 percent increase is lower than 4.5 percent rise the MGRS Committee considered at its most recent meeting because of $150,000 gift from Williams College

Randy Kinnas, interim CEO of the Northern Berkshire YMCA, speaks at the organization's 129th annual meeting on Wednesday.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire YMCA has a long history of serving the region, but it had a short annual meeting on Wednesday morning.

That's partly because planned keynote speaker Mike Jaffe, known as the "human wake-up call," had a death in the family so could not attend. But it's also because the organization is currently in a very good place, despite having had a change in leadership.

"It is running absolutely flawlessly," said David Brown, president of the board of directors. "Financially it is

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Williamstown Cal Ripken Baseball is thinking big for 2015.   For the first time, the league will implement the 50/70 rule for teams in its Majors division.   The players in the 10- to 12-year-old division will play on a field where the basepaths are 70-feet long and the pitching rubber is 50 feet from home plate -- increases of 10 feet and 4 feet, respectively.   "When we do that, it allows the kids to play straight baseball," league president Allen Hall explained. "Runners can take leads. Pitchers can pick off runners. A dropped third strike comes into play.   "It's a much faster, more exciting game for the

Town Administrator Paul Sieloff told the Selectmen that he isn't budging from the 1 percent offer and is crafting the town's budget based on that. LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Town Administrator Paul Sieloff says if Mount Greylock Regional School District wants to hike its assessment by 11 percent, it will need to convince voters of an override.   High School officials aren't backing down from asking for a 4.5 percent raise in the budget, which will result in $276,700 more in Lanesborough's assessment, or a 10.54 percent increase over this year.   Sieloff says the request is asking for every bit of new money Lanesborough will generate if the town raises taxes
