WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — By a vote of 10-3, Jamie Art was chosen Monday to fill a vacant seat on the Mount Greylock School Committee.   Per the regional agreement that joins Lanesborough and Williamstown in the preK-12 district, the vacancy created by the departure of Joe Bergeron required a meeting of the remaining School Committee members plus the select boards from both the district's member towns.   That made for 14 eligible voters. Thirteen attended Monday's meeting with one member of the School Committee, Williamstown's Alison Carter, currently on maternity leave.   There were five candidates before the joint meeting after Monday's withdrawal

  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Sue Kirby can remember when physical education classes looked a lot different than they do today.   "Muriel Flagg had two canes. I don't know what happened to her, because she wasn't always like that," Kirby said this week while reminiscing about her career. "I remember you had to climb the ropes, and she hit you with a cane to get you up the rope.   "We don't even have the ropes."   And they certainly don't have the canes.   But Kirby found her own ways to get the most out of her pupils over more than four decades as an educator in the Williamstown public schools.   This past

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock School Committee last week declined to slow plans for installing an artificial turf field at the middle-high school but members noted that there is still time to weigh health and environmental concerns before shovels go into the ground.   The full School Committee earlier in the spring authorized the Phase 2 grounds subcommittee to put the turf field out to bid this summer.   Since that time, committee members have heard from a number of residents concerned about studies that have linked "infill" materials in used in turf fields to higher rates of cancer and environmental contamination due to runoff from those
