A section of the embankment collapsed into the road early Friday morning.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Beaver Street will remain closed over the weekend as crews work to stabilize a deteriorating embankment.

A chunks of the rock formation collapsed into the roadway at about 3 a.m. the morning. Crews were planning to "peck away" at the ledge to remove weakened sections and to cut some of the trees on the slope above to reduce pressure, said Mayor Richard Alcombright on Friday.

"State geologists looked at the slope erosion and based on their recommendations, the road will remain closed throughout the weekend," the mayor later stated in an email message.

College officials, maintenance workers, Rep. Gailanne Cariddi, Mayor Richard Alcombright, and representatives from companies involved in its construction get ready to cut the ribbon on the new facilities building Friday.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The crew that keeps Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts well groomed now has a home of its own.

Brand-new, and barely used yet, 12,000 square-foot structure on Ashland Street will house all of the college's maintenance departments, including grounds, carpentry, electrical and motor.

"In short order, when this turns into a working building, it will not be a place the team wants all of us touring around," said MCLA President

This holiday-shortened week saw a relief rally that began on Monday and carried through until Thursday. The markets still have further to go in the coming week before we once again reach the top of this four month long trading range.

The question that haunts both bulls and bears is when and in what direction will the markets finally break out or break down? As readers are aware, I believe that there is a high probability that stocks will do both in the weeks ahead. We could easily see the S&P 500 Index, for example, reach a new high, possibly 1,900 or beyond.

However, at some point this spring, that index and others will rollover. The resulting decline will be nasty, scary and

Fixing potholes on Eagle Street in North Adams earlier this month.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Local officials are grateful for the state's release of some $30 million toward municipal road repairs — but it's not enough to fill all the potholes caused by this winter.

"The $66,000 won't really put a dent in it," Timothy Lescarbeau, North Adams superintendent of public services, of the city's share of the extra Chapter 90 funding.

Cities and towns that have applied for the funding Pothole and Winter Recovery Program are receiving an amount determined by the Chapter 90 road funding calculations based on populations and miles of roadways.

Monday, April 21, is Patriots Day, a state holiday marking the anniversary of the Battle of Lexington and Concord that began the American Revolution. The day has been celebrated on the third Monday in April since 1969.

It was on the morning of April 19, 1775, that Paul Revere and other riders began the alert across and beyond Massachusetts Colony that troops were planning to advance from Boston to the towns of Lexington and Concord. They were to seize a cache of gunpowder and arms and capture revolutionaries Sam Adams and John Hancock.

(Local legend claims that Israel Bissell, later of Hinsdale, rode all the way to Philadelphia, but most historians dismiss it.)

Kevin Costner cogitates on who he'll pick for his fantasy football team in the insidery 'Draft Day.'

Director Ivan Reitman's "Draft Day" dramatically mirrors the changing, commercially charged face of sportsdom. Once upon a time, devotees were primarily concerned with their superstars' skill and determination. I've always added a few points for uniform design: i.e. — the serious majesty of the Yankees' NY, and those pinstripes; the colorful whimsy of two birds balancing at each end of a bat on the St. Louis Cardinals' jersey.

This Friday the stock and bond markets will be closed to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, or so the theory goes. But that is just one of the many myths involved in this holiday and its origins remain a mystery.

The fact that the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has a tradition of closing on Good Friday, one of nine holidays per year, has many traders and investors scratching their heads. After all, it is not a federal holiday and plenty of other businesses are open on that day. What makes Good Friday any more important than say, Columbus Day?

There is a story that during the 1890s there were three years in a row that the market suffered big drops on Good Friday. Superstitious

It's not easy being green ... in a gulag. The latest Muppets movie has a some laughs but lacks spirit.

irector James Bobin, entrusted with bringing "Muppets Most Wanted" to the silver screen, dives into the toy box of things Muppets and dexterously assembles all the parts that comprise the famed franchise, except for one.

Missing from this eighth feature film, as Miss Piggy may be wont to emote in her best French, is the joie de vivre, the je ne sais quoi. Or, as Kermit might plainly croak, it just doesn’t fly off the fat end of the bat.
