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

However, both offices will have to relocate because they are in NBH-owned facilities — OB/GYN is on the second floor at North Adams Regional Hospital and the family practice is in a

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.'
