NBCC founder Al Bashevkin accepts the award from District Attorney David Capeless.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Some years ago, a mother, her boyfriend and her 4-year-old daughter walked into a business to rent furniture for their apartment.

The clerk took notice of multiple bruises on the little girl.

The child had a black eye, bruises all down her arms. The mother pulled the girl's arm a little too hard. When the child asked for a drink of water, she was denied.

The clerk finished the business transaction but those images stuck with him. He called the Department of Children and Families and immediately an investigation opened. Police went to the house and found the child with a

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A number of organizations are working to preserve medical access in light of the demise of Northern Berkshire Healthcare.

First, the practices of Northern Berkshire Family Medicine and Northern Berkshire OB/GYN will remain open and available for patient services, according to NBH officials. The affiliated services were expected to close by Friday, April 4, but Berkshire Health Systems has stepped in to provide administrative and other assistance to keep the practices going.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Verizon Wireless customers should be back online — thanks to the company's COW.

The mobile "Cell on Wheels" tower was brought in Sunday afternoon after two radio towers hosting antenna for a number of wireless carriers were knocked down by high winds overnight Saturday.

Verizon first increased the capacity of neighboring cell sites, although Verizon customers continued to run into decreased or nonexistent service depending on where they were in North County. Second, the temporary cell tower was brought in and located at north of the former Wigwam Gift Shop, at the top of the Hairpin Turn.

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes) and his protege, Zero Moustafa (Tony Revolori), are the targets of a zany manhunt in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel.'

Reading some incredible background on Stefan Zweig (1881-1942), the Viennese author credited with inspiring director Wes Anderson's creative, lunatical and intelligent "The Grand Budapest Hotel," I was for a second skeptical. Did Anderson slip this bio into Wikipedia?

You see, I had just been happily immersed in the auteur's wildly imaginative, multipronged satire, and wondered if I were still in the grips of his artistic

When it comes to estate planning, procrastinating is easy. The task of getting your house in order can seem daunting and the topic uncomfortable. In fact, while the majority of Americans believe that all adults should have an estate plan, only 44 percent have actually created one, according to a 2011 LexisNexis survey.

Unplanned estates may be left to wind their way through probate court, leaving state law to determine the disposition of your assets.

"The time to devise an estate plan is now, if you haven't already," says John Padberg, vice president of life event services and estate planning for Wells Fargo Advisors. Many people equate estate plans with wills, he says, but

New Lebanon High School is about 10 miles from Hancock Elementary School. Mount Greylock is eight miles from the elementary school.

HANCOCK, Mass. — It looks like Lanesborough is going to get its answer on whether Hancock would like to join the regional district.

The question just will be phrased a little differently.

At Hancock's May 5 annual town meeting, residents will be asked whether they want to remove Mount Greylock Regional School as an option for town residents with children in Grades 7 through 12.

Voters will be asked to instead recommend that the School Committee deem New Lebanon Central High School in Lebanon Springs, N.Y., as "the school of choice" for
