ROXBURY, Mass. -- The girls of the West squad came home from the Bay State Games with silver medals around their necks.   But the experience of playing for that team was as good as gold.   For a little more than a month, 12 girls from six different schools throughout Berkshire County sweated together it out in the gym at Pittsfield's Miss Hall's School, forming a cohesive unit that was able to hold its own against all-comers at the Boston sports festival.   Making the team allowed the girls to work on their game on the court and form bonds off the court.   "I think it was a great opportunity," recent Drury High graduate Emily Moulton said.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Lynn Ann Burdick was 18 years old when she disappeared while closing shop at the former Barefoot Country Peddlar General Store in Florida on the evening of April 17, 1982, less than an hour after a man attempted to abduct a girl from the Williams College campus.   Two other women about the same age, Cynthia Krizack and Kim Benoit, had also been abducted and found strangled in the northern part of the county within the previous six years.   In the early morning hours of Aug. 19, 1900, May Fosburgh was shot to death in her

ROXBURY, Mass. — Some of the best high school girls basketball players in Western Massachusetts went east with one simple mission: to show the world that Berkshire County hoops is legit.   Message delivered.   The West came up a little short on Sunday evening — literally and figuratively — in a Bay State Games gold medal game where the Bostonians' height proved decisive.   But after going 5-1 over three days and splitting with the Metro team that won the title, 78-65, on Sunday, the Berkshire all-stars have nothing to feel down about.   "I think the biggest thing is these kids came out here just wanting to prove they can play," West coach

MELROSE, Mass. -- Some of Berkshire County's best high school girls basketball players have proven to be some of the best in the state.

And on Sunday, they will look to end the debate.   The West team at the Bay State Games will play in the Gold Medal game Sunday afternoon at Roxbury's Reggie Lewis Track and Athletic Center after posting a 4-0 record on the first two days of the tournament.   Mount Greylock's Lucy Barrett and Pittsfield's Peyton Steinman have been among the leaders of the squad, made up of six girls from public high schools and six prep school athletes.   "I'm so proud of this group of kids," West coach Matthew Ward said.

I have had the privilege of serving on the board of directors of Berkshire Family and Individual Resources (BFAIR) for more than six years now. In that time, I have gotten to know not only how amazing this organization and its dedicated employees are but also that the sky is the limit for the individuals with disabilities BFAIR serves.

That's why I'm using this space this week to promote BFAIR's annual fundraiser, which this year comes in the form of a miniature golf tournament on Saturday, July 19, at The Range in North Adams.

First, the mission of BFAIR: "Through organizational resolve, skilled and dedicated staff, and dynamic leadership, BFAIR provides quality services,

Williamstown Theatre Festival's free performance of 'Robin Hood' allows the audience to chill out on blankets right in front of the stage under the stars.



WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Williamstown Theatre Festival is not necessarily known to be as community-minded as some of the year-round theater companies in the Berkshires. But they do stage a piece of free theater every year, and this year's offering was "Robin Hood," performed in the Poker Flats area of Williams College. On a lovely and cool opening night, Noelle and I went to see the play.
