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.

"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,

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

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
