PITTSFIELD, Mass. — On Friday afternoon, Berkshire Community College ushered in a new era in Berkshire County sports and recognized a longtime civic leader in the process.

The best part for honoree Gene Dellea? It just may be the fact that his part came at the end of a 45-minute dedication.   "For all of you who know this person, you will say to yourself, 'Of course, this should be dedicated to this person,' " Dellea's friend Emil George said moments before revealing the name of the long-awaited artificial turf field at BCC. "Because this field is important not just to Pittsfield but to Berkshire County, it should be dedicated to someone who has given

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town of Williamstown on Thursday afternoon issued a temporary certificate of occupancy for the new Mount Greylock Regional School.   Earlier in the day, school and town officials clarified that the issues holding up the TCO were typical for a building project of this size and in no way related to the functionality of the renovated and expanded middle-high school.   Wednesday night, the newly expanded school district's Transition Committee decided to delay the start of the school year by two days after the $64 million project last week failed to obtain the TCO it needs to allow faculty and staff to begin preparing for the academic

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Mount Greylock Regional Middle and High School will not open on time.   The Transition Committee voted on Wednesday to delay opening day until Monday, September 10. The change only applies to the middle and high school and not the elementary schools and was caused by delays in the construction of the new $64 million building.   The district has yet to be issued a temporary certificate of occupancy and while school officials believe that will be coming soon, they still want ample time for teachers and administrators to settle into the new building.   "Right now, we've run out of time," Superintendent Kimberly Grady said. "As this

"They see the crisis that's brewing: 3,000 vacancies in nursing positions in Vermont.  It's a big number ... it's a huge number.     "So what we're saying is 'how do we get ahead of that

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — After repeated public assurances from its construction manager that the new Mount Greylock Regional School will be ready for the Sept. 6 opening of school, the district Friday informed staff and families that the building failed Thursday in its second attempt to obtain a temporary certificate of occupancy.   "[Thursday's] inspection indicated that there remain tasks to complete before the TCO can be issued, and a new inspection has been set for next week," Superintendent Kimberley Grady and Principal Mary MacDonald wrote in an email addressed to "The Mount Greylock Community."   "Our community has been anticipating an

  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock School Building Committee on Thursday debated how much the school district should pay in inspection fees for the addition/renovation project at the middle-high school.   The district has been carrying a $300,000 line item in the $65 million budget for "other project costs." Of that, about 24 percent, or $75,000, has been committed for moving costs.   Meanwhile, the town of Williamstown has notified the district that the project has run up more than $300,000 in permitting fees already, and with the major part of construction coming to an end, the town has asked the district to settle its accounts.   As

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — With the new school building and parking lot projects wrapping up, the old school coming down, the 12-month staff scattered and the negotiation with its unions ongoing, it has been a busy and, at times, stressful summer for the administration and governing bodies of the Mount Greylock Regional School District.   But in just a couple of weeks, the district gets back to business: educating the children from its member towns plus New Ashford and Hancock.   And for the middle and high school students, that means a whole new experience, which the School Building Committee took a few moments to celebrate at its Thursday meeting.   "There is a
