Eight times a month, she feeds 50 people," Gill said.   Julie is Julie Gill, the coach's wife. "They" are the dozens of Mount Greylock student-athletes who commit to coaching the next generation of runners, jumpers and throwers two nights per week each May.   "They go to school all day, then go to

"It's a nice reversal of fortunes."   The advisory council has been advocating to replace the full-time, year-round supervisor who left last year — but the Department of Recreation and Conservation has been reducing its budget and its staffing.    There was no full-time staff on the
