The school budget for fiscal 2015 is running $33,000 short. LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — School officials are still trying to close a budget gap caused by miscalculating staffing costs.   The school's budget is currently negative $33,594 as Business Manager Lynn Bassett continues to find ways to break even.   "We are reducing that quarter by quarter," Bassett told the School Committee last week.   Bassett said the deficit was caused by changes in staffing that weren't calculated into the budget. A .6 full-time equivalent was moved to 1 and a .4 was moved to .6.   "We are closely monitoring the FY15 budget and as employees are making changes

Spruces Land Use Committee members Selectman Andrew Hogeland, left, and Chairman Dr. Thomas Hyde at Wednesday's meeting. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Spruces Land Use Committee on Wednesday began making plans to ask the town for money to fund a conceptual study of what can be developed on the site of the soon-to-be-closed mobile home park.   The ad hoc committee is charged with coming up for a plan to reuse the 115-acre parcel, which will come into the town's possession in early 2016, after the mobile home park closes for good under the terms of a federal Hazard Mitigation Grant.   Nearly a third of that site — 41 acres — is currently developed and in

A national debate over whether to tax "529" college savings plans has turned the spotlight on these plans and how they work. Do they really help parents save the money their kids will need for college? The answer depends on how they are invested and how they are managed.

Starting in 2001, the IRS offered tax benefits to middle-class families to cope with the escalating costs of college education. Thirty-four states (and the District of Columbia) also chipped in with tax breaks of their own. These savings plans work much like a 401 (K) or a Roth IRA. The after-tax money you invest in these plans will grow (or not) without being subject to federal income tax. Any money you

Johnny Depp ponders the vagaries of moustaches and acting careers in the forgettable 'Mortdecai.'

There's nothing good on TV and you've finished pondering all your forgotten lore. So you're playing with your phone, switching from the weather to Yelp and regularly checking to see if you've received any new mail in the last minute. But something's missing ... that drone of an inconsequential movie as background score to your boredom. In such case might I recommend, when available through Netflix or any of the other secondary movie purveyors, director David

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Clark Art Institute is in getting in on the good-natured wagering that attends the Super Bowl.

The Berkshires are not Boston. Thank goodness for that! When Governor Baker recently banned all non-essential travel on January 27th in response to the dire warnings from the national weather service of the winter storm "Juno" (when did they start giving names to snow events?), he did so for the entire state of Massachusetts. What he didn't know concerning The Berkshires is that Boston and most of the eastern half of the state are a different world apart from The Berkshires. We love it that way too.

Here is what Boston is famous for among other things: traffic congestion, The Big Dig, Logan International Airport, crowds, an antiquated public transit system and lots of
