Starbase founder Burton Francis, on the right, gives Evan Falchuk a tour of the Peck's Road building on Tuesday. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — One by one, Burton Francis introduced Evan Falchuk to his employees on Tuesday, telling them that Falchuk is challenging the establishment.   And one by one, the Starbase Technologies employees made sure they got their opinion heard — from welfare reform to gun control to business to putting their kids through college.   They've met plenty of politicians before but when Francis explained that Falchuk is an independent running for governor, many perked up a bit.   "The impasse in government is so bad that we really

How did I get 39 years into life without knowing the story of "Hairspray"?

I'm glad Noelle only had to go eight and a half, and I'm glad her first experience with it was Barrington Stage Company's Youth Theatre production of "Hairspray Jr."

Based on the film and Tony Award-winning stage musical of the same name, "Hairspray Jr." features the popular songs “You Can’t Stop the Beat” and “Good Morning Baltimore.” Filled with energetic dance numbers and unique characters, "Hairspray Jr." follows spunky plus-sized teen Tracy Turnblad as she pursues her dream of dancing on national television and navigates the

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Village Ambulance Service has signed an agreement to provide Williams College with on-call transportation for its students to and from non-emergency medical appointments during the school term.

Williams will fund the new operation, including the acquisition of two new fully equipped, wheelchair-capable vans and the hiring of drivers.

"The closure earlier this year of North Adams Regional Hospital brought into sharp relief a growing challenge that the college had been faced with for some time – how best to respond to an accelerating need to provide non-emergent, health-care-related transportation for students," said Stephen Klass, Williams vice

MCLA President Mary Grant talks about her time at MCLA and her decision to accept the chancellor's position at UNC at Asheville.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Mary Grant will be here this fall to welcome the incoming class at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts — but she won't be there to bid the class of 2015 farewell.

Rather, Grant is saying her own farewells to the college community she has lead for the past dozen years. This coming January, she heads south to become chancellor of the University of North Carolina's Asheville campus. Grant replaces Anne Ponder, who is retiring after nine years as chancellor.

"I'm glad that I get to open up another semester,

Gordon Holey shows off one of his puppets, Dizzy Desi, in his home studio in Williamstown. Holey will debut his puppet show 'The Story Book' at the Clark Art Institute on Friday, Aug. 8.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Gordon Holey started out at Ohio State University majoring in materials science and engineering, which is the study of materials based on their composition and structure.

Now, he makes puppets.

Holey, a native Texan who has lived in Williamstown for two years, changed career paths after he impulsively tried out for a play as a college junior who had never performed before. He secured the lead, beating out master-level theater students, loved it so much that he changed

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — The American Red Cross continues to have an urgent need for blood donors of all blood types to give before the Labor Day holiday, even after many more donors stepped up to give following an urgent call issued in late July.

Donors with types O negative, B negative and A negative blood are especially needed.

Blood donations often decline during the summer months, particularly around summer holidays. With school starting back up and summer activities coming to an end, there is still time for eligible donors to make a difference in the lives of patients this summer.

To encourage donations over the Labor Day holiday weekend, all donors who come out to donate blood

Members of the Conservation Commission, the  Historical Museum and the Rural Lands Foundation christen the new bath house at Margaret Lindley Park on Cold Spring Road on Monday morning.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — What started as an effort to return the bare minimum of services has ended with a project that maximizes the potential of a town-owned park.

Margaret Lindley Park on Cold Spring Road (Route 7), just south of the junction with Route 2, long has been a popular swimming hole for local families looking for a clear, cool, natural break from the summer's heat.   Thanks to the work begun two years ago by the town's Conservation Commission, the park this summer has

In recent weeks, politicians and concerned citizens alike have decried the growing number of corporations that have opted to renounce their citizenship and move off-shore. Rather than simply playing the blame game, a better approach might be to examine the underlying cause for this growing exodus. 

Taxes, as you might imagine, are the crux of the matter. It is true that U.S. corporations pay the highest tax rate in the world at 35 percent. It is an often-quoted statistic but not entirely accurate. The effective tax rate is more like 25 percent when all the deductions and allowances are accounted for. Nevertheless, that number is still high and many corporations fear it is going to
