By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
05:39AM / Tuesday, January 16, 2024
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School District administration is forecasting a fiscal year 2025 budget with little room for additional programming in the preK-12 district.   "This is likely one of those budget years when we'll be focusing hard on what we have to do and not as much on what we'd like to do," Superintendent Jason McCandless told the School Committee last week. "Any additions, particularly around staffing, will likely have to be met with proportionate reductions elsewhere."   Assistant Superintendent Joseph Bergeron, who also serves as the district's budget director, walked the committee members through what he

Figuring Out Fevers in Kids
11:34AM / Monday, January 15, 2024

Few things make a parent feel more helpless than when their child has a fever. The good news is most fevers are harmless. In fact, they’re a signal that your child’s immune system is working to fight infection. Nonetheless, it can be distressing when your child is unwell. There are so many questions: How high a fever is too high? What medication—if any—should I give them? When should I call a doctor?

Williamstown Select Board to Seek Data on Short-Term Rental Issue
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
07:20AM / Saturday, January 13, 2024
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board on Monday discussed developing a town-wide bylaw on short-term rentals.   But it did not reach a consensus — even about whether to take up the project that the Planning Board asked the Select Board members to address 15 months earlier.   Four members of the five-person Select Board appeared to agree that some action was needed to create local guardrails for Airbnbs, as other communities throughout the county have done. One member said the issue needs more study and implied the Planning Board was suggesting the town solve a problem that does not exist.   The discussion — the second since the Planning Board's
