NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Just under 14,000 people live in North Adams.

"Everyone with a pulse is welcome," said Annie Rodgers of Northern Berkshire Neighbors, who is one of the people throwing the party.

But it's not just any party: It's the inaugural North Adams Lip Dub, coming soon to city streets near you.

For the uninitiated, a lip dub is a type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to make a music video. Lip dubs have

Williamstown is considering a request to begin school earlier next fall. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The elementary school could be looking at a very short summer, depending on what the school committee decides next week about the 2014-15 school calendar.   Thanks to the five snow days — and counting — at Williamstown Elementary School this winter, the current school year already is slated to end on June 26.   On Wednesday night, the committee was presented with two options for next year's calendar: one that starts before Labor Day and one that starts after.   If they choose the former, teachers would report back on Tuesday, Aug. 26 with children

The first million-plus sale in the county was recorded in 1996 and three years later the first one in Williamstown. In the ensuing years there have been a total of 280 countywide, of which 21 have sold in Williamstown. Three each sold in 2002, 2007 and 2012 with none in 2013 and one so far in 2014. Countywide, the number of million-plus sales peaked in 2004 and 2006 at 31 each down to 21 in 2013.

Meanwhile the inventory of high-end real estate listings reached around 14 or 15 in recent years in Williamstown and 83 countywide. At the current rate that means 14 years of million-dollar inventory in Williamstown and four year's worth in the county as a whole.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock Regional School officials Tuesday responded to suggestions that the district might stop accepting tuition students and that it could "slow down" the state building authority's process.   The message from the district was twofold: Contraction would hurt programming at the school, and talking about contraction at this time could derail efforts to address the failing building that is home to the junior-senior high school.   School Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Greene at Tuesday's meeting read aloud a memo she drafted in response to comments made at Monday's Lanesborough Board of Selectmen meeting.   Some officials

The Board of Selectmen expressed interest in doing a secret ballot for the big ticket items in the budget.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Voters overwhelming rejected a plan to cut $25,000 from the Police Department's budget in 2012.

The Selectmen say they had support for the move. But when voters had to raise their red cards in the air, next to their neighbors with families working in the department, and with officers pleading their case to restore the funding, the support vanished.

"They feel big brother is watching them if they raise their hand," said Selectman Henry Sayers.

Now the Selectmen have asked Town Administrator Paul Sieloff to see if there is a way to do secret

The Selectmen decided Monday night to let the Affordable Housing Committee evaluate two proposals for town land; Selectman David Rempell reiterated his belief that the board should be more closely involved. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Board of Selectmen on Monday decided not to insert itself directly into the evaluation of two proposals to develop housing on town-owned "brown field" parcels.   Instead, the board decided to let the Affordable Housing Committee take the lead on evaluation and bring its recommendation to the Selectmen for an up or down vote.   Last Friday was the deadline for Williamstown's requests for proposals (RFPs) to build subsidized

Thomas Matuszko of BRPC explained the program to a small group at the Adams Visitors Center on Monday night.

ADAMS, Mass. — Northern Berkshire County could tap into federal assistance to promote and maintain its forestry resources. 

A forestry conservation program being promoted by the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission looks to use a new model that links communities, property owners, businesses, state agencies and federal agencies.

"The predominate reason we want to do this is to access some of the federal resources that may be associated through the U.S. Forest Service," Thomas Matuszko, assistant director of BRPC, said Monday night. "[Massachusetts] does
