The international box office accounted for a small portion of overall revenues a decade or so ago, but times have changed. Now it's a 60/40 split in favor of foreigners. China, with a population of over 1.3 billion is

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Deb Shops will close at the Berkshire Mall after the national corporation filed bankruptcy.   The clothing retailer won court approval last week to hold a going-out-of-business sale as they liquidate their assets, according to the Wall Street Journal. The company will be closing about 300 of its stores across the country.   The company filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy in December and last Wednesday's ruling enabled the company to sell all items - including furniture - to pay overdue rents and creditors.    The company's website announces the store closing. Items are advertised to be 30 to 50 percent off and the stores are expected to remain

City Councilor Lisa Blackmer is sworn in as president by City Clerk Marilyn Gomeau.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council in its first meeting of the year on Tuesday approved a right-to-farm ordinance and re-elected officers.
