NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Strategic planning for the "confluence campaign" at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art began on a Saturday during a January blizzard.

It didn't seem an auspicious start for the museum's ambitious Phase 3 to fill out nearly all of the massive former Sprague Electric campus, bring in a diverse collection of artists and programs, and forge a stronger physical connection with the surrounding community.

But amid a packed room with Gov. Deval Patrick in attendance, the confluence of art, architecture and community

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It can’t get any better than this for Berkshire County high school football.

Literally. It cannot.

The most successful season in recent memory for the county’s gridiron heroes will continue in full force next Saturday as three teams compete in the state semi-finals.
