NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Twenty brand-new licensed practical nurses are beginning their careers with some pretty heavy responsibility. They, and others like them, will influence the future of the nation's health care.

The graduates of the school's LPN program will

To the Editor:

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s recently released report on the CIA's interrogation program shows that torture is an outdated, inhumane, and ultimately ineffective practice that ruins the lives of innocent people like you and me.

When I learned about the experiences that the suspects were forced to go through by the CIA, the details were, in the words of John McCain, "a tough pill to swallow," to say the least. The everyday things we enjoy were stripped from these people.

Human beings were forced to be nearly drowned multiple times a week, and kept in a dungeon, locked away from their families. They were deprived of basic necessities such as sleep

STAMFORD, Vt. — A delivery truck driver was taken to Berkshire Medical Center's satellite emergency facility in North Adams, Mass., on Tuesday after shearing off a utility pole.

State police said Darrell Thomas, 43, of Albany, N.Y., was southbound on Route 100 at about 12:30 p.m. when he left the highway just south of Collins Road.

Investigation into the crash determined that Thomas' uniform delivery truck lost traction on the snow-covered roadway and exited the west side of the road. The truck flipped onto its right side and slid nose first into the pole, cutting it in two and causing the cab and cargo area to rip open.  

Thomas had been wearing his seat belt, which

  How do we get out of this movie again?

I have seen my share of horror movies, some gruesome, some absolutely terrifying, others jump- out-of-your-seat shocking and many just plain dumb. But when it comes to simply making its principal characters torturously and unceasingly miserable, director Grégory Levasseur's "The Pyramid" takes Miss Havisham's cake. This is typical B-movie horror, structurally unchanged since the subgenre took form in the 1950s. All that's missing is the forgivable innocence of nascency and the hokey effects that, in retrospect, made

Ukraine had been the topic on everyone's lips for over six months. Today, nary a word is written about Russian's plan to annex that nation. You can thank declining oil prices for that.

While most of the West rejoices over the recent precipitous drop in the price of oil, the story is quite different for the largest producer of fossil fuel energy, Mother Russia. That's right, Russia, and not Saudi Arabia, leads the world in energy production. As such, Russia depends on energy for 16 percent of its gross domestic product, 52 percent of total federal revenues and 70 percent of all exports. And that was in 2012. Since then the numbers are even higher.

As the price of energy

The library trustees discuss ways to expand staffing with limited options.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The North Adams Public Library faces a lack of city support in funding for staffing and maintenance.

The Library Trustees met Monday afternoon to discuss needs within the building.

Librarian Mindy Hackner said after resolving a recent issue with staff at City Hall, she discussed the lack of staffing in the building with the mayor.

She said the library can only offer minimal services and over the past few years, the staff dropped from 16 to 10.

"Personally I don't know how a city of 13,000 is supposed to run a library this size with only three staff members," Hackner said.

After Executive Director Joseph Thompson and his staff announced a packed winter and spring season on Wednesday, Thompson led a tour of  "Building 6," which is slated to be renovated into usable gallery space.

The renovation, which will nearly double the exhibit space, is happening thanks to a $25.4 million state grant announced in November and private donations that MoCA hopes will total $30

Only a few hardy souls braved the snow to attend a special town meeting at Clarksburg School.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Selectmen voted to approve a single tax rate at Wednesday's tax classification hearing.
 
The tax rate will be $14.10 per $1,000 valuation, based on revenues needed to fund the fiscal 2015 budget.

That's up 74 cents from last year's $13.36 per $1,000.

The average single-family home now assessed at $167,945.96 would have a tax bill of $2,368.04. That's  up $171.87 for the average tax bill over last year, said Assessor Ross Vivori.

However, the town is still near the bottom of the list in terms of property tax bills in Berkshire
