NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The power of positive thinking was in full force on Friday morning at BFAIR's annual breakfast meeting.

Berkshire Family and Individual Resources Inc. has history of looking at issues from a different perspective: Seeing the brain-injured and developmentally disabled it serves not as problems to be treated but people with potential.

Keynote speaker Daniel Tomasulo told the more than 100 gathered at the Williams Inn that it was a matter of seeing the glass as always full — even if half of it was air.

Mount Greylock officials are still struggling with how to determine enrollment figures for a new school project. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Wednesday once again tackled the question of how big the junior-senior high school should be.   This time, the venue was a meeting of the body's Education Policy Subcommittee, but the afternoon session drew six of the seven members of the full School Committee.   At its April 14 meeting, the committee tasked the subcommittee with further study of an issue that has split the full committee this spring: whether the district wants to continue allowing school choice and tuition students,

Surviving vacation?

Truth be told, a week of wacky weather has left me a little uncertain of family fun. Monday was a beautiful Patriots Day. Tuesday it rained. Wednesday it was so cold the rain actually turned to snow during Touch A Truck. Thursday the wind was so strong that I wouldn't let my daughter scooter for fear of her blowing off.

What's the weekend to bring?

Saturday (which is my birthday, incidentally, just in case you're interested) it's supposed to rain again, but if a little water doesn't bother you, you can take the kids to the youth fishing derby in Pittsfield. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Pittsfield Conservation Commission and Lyon Aviation will

Johnny Depp goes all binary as he transcends to Deep-Blue levels.

Remember that really smart kid in high school who got double 8s on his SATs?

He was trying to end whatever war we were fighting at the time while also lobbying to save the environment, long before it was hip. Well, he grew up to be Will Caster, the genius protagonist played by Johnny Depp in first time director Wally Pfister's "Transcendence." If you're of a mind to see it, bone up on your organic chemistry and advanced computer algorithmic theory. Yeah, that kind of smart.

You have to give Depp credit.

This week several multibillion deals were announced in the pharmaceutical sector. Merger and acquisitions on a global scale appears to be heating up in this sector with over $140 billion in transactions so far this year. What's behind this feeding frenzy?

We all know that the majority of baby boomers are getting older so the demand for health care of all kinds is growing. As a result, the health care sector overall is a great place to invest. While many other industries experienced a devastating drop in profits and revenues over the last five years, the pharmaceutical industry weathered the financial crisis fairly well.

But that's the good news. The bad news is that the cost of

A group of union and community members carpooled to the Springfield bankruptcy court and attended the hearing.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The emergency room at the former North Adams Regional Hospital is expected to reopen as a satellite facility by mid-May under the auspices of Berkshire Medical Center.

The Pittsfield hospital's parent company has also reached a deal with the bondholders of the bankrupt Northern Berkshire Healthcare to buy its assets.

That deal is expected to be completed by July.

"We were able to reach an agreement with Berkshire Medical Center," Harold B. Murphy, the court-appointed trustee of NBH, said during Thursday morning's hearing in U.S.

The gavel rests between Affordable Housing Committee Vice Chairman Charles Bonenti, who ran Wednesday's meeting, and Van Ellet, left, who was elected interim chairman on Wednesday. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — After a last attempt to hold onto its past, the Affordable Housing Committee on Wednesday headed off into an uncertain future.   The committee held its first meeting since three of its eight members resigned last week when the Board of Selectmen rejected its unanimous recommendation on a housing developer.   A prepared statement written by Chairwoman Catherine Yamamoto and read Wednesday by Vice Chairman Charles Bonenti shed some more light on those

Village Ambulance says its been handling the treks to Pittsfield and Bennington, Vt., since the closure of North Adams Regional Hospital.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The demise of North Adams Regional Hospital, which was operated by Northern Berkshire Healthcare, ignited a fear of losing doctors and anxiety over where to turn in an emergency.

"We had an increase in walk-ins and phone calls," said Dr. Anthony Smeglin, president of the Williamstown Medical Associates and a pulmonary and critical-care specialist. "People were frightened. We don't have facilities for walk-ins and some people came in for information. We tried to help."
