NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Conte School gymnasium will come down this week as demolition continues on the renovation of the former middle school.

Crews have removed most of the windows, dug up the ground floor for piping and are nearly completed with asbestos abatement. The steel roof of the gym was removed last week and the old oil tank taken out.

So far, few surprises have popped up during demolition, a concern for the School Building Committee overseeing the $30 million project to turn the

An 'injured' student is attended to by an EMT at a mock emergency drill on Monday morning, part of the North Adams Public School's summer science camp.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A visitor to Northern Berkshire YMCA on Monday morning might have been alarmed to see young children swathed in bandages and "bleeding" behind the building. 

Not to worry. The children were taking turns on how to react to a real crisis — such as falling off their bikes — fake blood and all.

The second-graders were participating in the school district's 21st Century Community Learning Center Summer Science Camp. And they loaded classmates onto stretchers as a

ROXBURY, Mass. -- The girls of the West squad came home from the Bay State Games with silver medals around their necks.   But the experience of playing for that team was as good as gold.   For a little more than a month, 12 girls from six different schools throughout Berkshire County sweated together it out in the gym at Pittsfield's Miss Hall's School, forming a cohesive unit that was able to hold its own against all-comers at the Boston sports festival.   Making the team allowed the girls to work on their game on the court and form bonds off the court.   "I think it was a great opportunity," recent Drury High graduate Emily Moulton said.

Sarah L. Stein reviews some of the aspects of killers during a talk for the OLLI program. Stein is an expert on cold cases. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Lynn Ann Burdick was 18 years old when she disappeared while closing shop at the former Barefoot Country Peddlar General Store in Florida on the evening of April 17, 1982, less than an hour after a man attempted to abduct a girl from the Williams College campus.   Two other women about the same age, Cynthia Krizack and Kim Benoit, had also been abducted and found strangled in the northern part of the county within the previous six years.   In the early morning hours of Aug. 19, 1900, May Fosburgh was shot to death in her

ROXBURY, Mass. — Some of the best high school girls basketball players in Western Massachusetts went east with one simple mission: to show the world that Berkshire County hoops is legit.   Message delivered.   The West came up a little short on Sunday evening — literally and figuratively — in a Bay State Games gold medal game where the Bostonians' height proved decisive.   But after going 5-1 over three days and splitting with the Metro team that won the title, 78-65, on Sunday, the Berkshire all-stars have nothing to feel down about.   "I think the biggest thing is these kids came out here just wanting to prove they can play," West coach

I have had the privilege of serving on the board of directors of Berkshire Family and Individual Resources (BFAIR) for more than six years now. In that time, I have gotten to know not only how amazing this organization and its dedicated employees are but also that the sky is the limit for the individuals with disabilities BFAIR serves.

That's why I'm using this space this week to promote BFAIR's annual fundraiser, which this year comes in the form of a miniature golf tournament on Saturday, July 19, at The Range in North Adams.

First, the mission of BFAIR: "Through organizational resolve, skilled and dedicated staff, and dynamic leadership, BFAIR provides quality services,
