ADAMS, Mass. — The state Department of Conservation and Recreation is hoping for a $1.8 million renovation of the 80-year-old War Memorial atop Mount Greylock.

But the amount the project entails means the tower must fully comply with federal handicapped accessibility requirements.

Jeffery Harris, a preservation planner with the state Department of Conservation and Recreation, met with the Historical Commission on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the alterations — and to ask for a waiver.

"Ever since the tower was built in the

Will the ghost of William Wallace finally see the British thrown out of his country once and for all? If the latest polls on the outcome of the Sept. 18th referendum on Scottish Independence are any indication, Scots are in a dead heat over the political and economic future of their country.

Last weekend, for the first time, polls showed that the majority of voters in Scotland were leaning toward independence. Since then new polls show the public vacillating between yes and no on a daily basis. The news has shocked the world and galvanized the three major British political parties to implement a no-holds-barred program of damage control.

The City Council voted to give a home-rule petition request two weeks more before voting on it.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday night voted to move swiftly to deal with a home-rule petition for a liquor license.

An initial motion by Councilor Keith Bona to continue the the matter to November failed; a second motion by Councilor Jennifer Breen to bring it back in two weeks passed unanimously.

Councilor Wayne Wilkinson, however, advocated acting immediately.

"They're using the City Council as a fallback position in case their deal falls through," said Councilor Wayne Wilkinson. "Everyone knows how they're going to vote at this point ... We

The school system is instituting the equipment at lunch lines this fall after more than a year of discussion about parents failing to pay delinquent lunch bills, the stigma surrounding free and reduced lunches and the need for student privacy.

But a notice sent home to parents  informing them of the changes sparked a

CASTLETON, Vt. -- The host Castleton State Spartans controlled play for much of the evening as they ran past the MCLA Trailblazers, 3-1, on Wednesady.   Castleton (3-2) jumped on the board first as Sarah Carlson scored her fourth goal of the season in the 20th minute after she corralled a loose ball and ripped a shot into the left corner for a 1-0 lead. The Spartans extended just three minutes later when Bri DiPhillipo launched a shot from 40 yards out that was perfectly lofted over Trailblazer keeper Katy Daly.   MCLA (0-3-1) responded with its only goal late in the half when Nicole Zacchio was the beneficiary of a loose ball in the Castleton zone and trimmed the margin to just

The park at the corner of Houghton and River streets in North Adams is one possible location for a skate park that is now in the planning stages.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Five years ago, a group of teenagers participating in the UNITY youth leadership program at the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition had an idea: They wanted to get a skate park built in the city.

This fall, that idea is finally taking shape.

A Community Development Block Grant has allowed the city's Office of Community Development, in conjunction with the NBCC, to commission a Los Angeles-based company to study and design a new skate/BMX park that eventually will be built in one of three locations.
