Chairwoman Carolyn Greene said the MSBA suggested speaking with Lanesborough officials about how enrollment figures were projected.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Tuesday approved $850,000 for a feasibility study of the middle and high school.

The Massachusetts School Building Authority will reimburse 55 percent of the cost and the School Committee will reduce the balance by $150,000 set aside for the purpose.

The expected cost to the towns will be $93,000 for Lanesborough and $139,500 for Williamstown, both of which will have to be approved at town meetings this spring. The debt should be incurred no earlier than fiscal 2016, more likely

Selectman David Rempell is stepping down at the end of his term.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A second veteran selectman announced his intention to step down after his term ends this year.

David Rempell, who has served on the board for three terms, said he had "a four-hour speech prepared for another meeting" but wanted any citizens interested in running to know he wasn't.

"It is an eye-opening exercise being on a board like this," Rempell said, in encouraging people to run.

Chairwoman Jane Allen announced her intention two weeks ago to step down after 12 years.

"We're going to miss David immensely," said Vice Chairman Ronald Turbin.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Applications are available for the 12th annual Daniel Pearl Berkshire Scholarship.

The $1,000 award is given in memory of Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter kidnapped and killed in Pakistan early in 2002. Pearl earlier worked in the Berkshires at the former North Adams Transcript and at The Berkshire Eagle.

He played guitar and mandolin as well, and while living in the Berkshires, he performed in a bluegrass band. For this reason, the award is given annually to a student who intends to study and pursue a career in either journalism or

Dan Caplinger questioned Lanesborough's exploration of leaving the union without discussing it with the union first.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The Williamstown members of Superintendency Union 71 are questioning why the Lanesborough School Committee began exploring the disbanding of the union without presenting concerns to them first.

"If a member school had a concern, they should bring that concern to the union and the union would explore it," said Dan Caplinger. "I kind of feel like we skipped a step."

Lanesborough School Committee Chairman Robert Barton has been calling on his committee to vote an intent to withdraw from the agreement made with Williamstown

Rich Cohen presented an array of research showing that the town is better served with the union than without it.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Superintendent Rose Ellis and residents defended the Superintendency Union 71 agreement Monday, countering arguments that the town would be better served by another district.

Ellis outlined a series of benefits the town has received because of the union and said the cost is lower than other districts.

She said the three key positions — that of the superintendent, business administrator and special education director — saves the town some $250,000.

For example, Lanesborough pays just $33,733 for her position compared to $54,615 for

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It takes patience, passion and perseverance to create a masterpiece.

And some of Betty Antonio's students have waited decades to do it.

The Spitzer Center is currently hosting an exhibit of paintings made over the past three years by a small group of dedicated artists who found their creativity late in life.

"It's just my cup of tea," said Barbara Dolle about her interest in oil painting, the only one in the group to dabble in oils.

The next time you meet with your financial adviser, you may want to discuss new ways to manage your portfolio. For instance, one increasingly popular option among individual investors is managed accounts. A way to tap into resources traditionally reserved for the very largest investors such as pension funds, endowments and high-net-worth investors, these accounts offer access to a variety of portfolios and asset classes not ordinarily available to individual investors.

"In many ways, this is the democratization of world-class professional money management, the type that previously was available to only a limited few," said Ian Maceachern, managing director of the Advisory

The Williams Inn is expected to change hands in the near future.

"The college is currently in discussion with the Faulkners about purchasing the Inn,"  Frederick Puddester, the college's vice president for finance and administration and treasurer, said last week.

The hotel maybe closed if the college is successful in developing a boutique hotel on Spring Street.

And after almost 25 years as owners and operators of the 100-room inn, Carl and Marilyn Faulkner have announced that they plan to retire soon.
