Patrick was otherwise occupied at a memorial for the Boston Marathon bombing victims on Tuesday with Vice President Joseph Biden, but the Save NARH

Officials are concerned that the steep hillside along Beaver Street could collapse.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city closed a section Beaver Street at about 4 p.m. on Tuesday because of fears of a mudslide or banking collapse along a section of the state highway.

Local officials said the closure is "because of slope erosion on the easterly side of the road and the possibility of further erosion with the heavy rain."

Several hundred yards of the street, which is also Route 8, have been sectioned off just south of the Clarksburg town line and traffic is being detoured until further notice.

Runners sport bunny ears in the first Bunny Run-Walk-Hop to End Homelessness in North Adams in 2013. This year's event is Saturday, April 19.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Spring often brings with it an increased stream of people needing emergency housing.

Which is why spring is also the perfect time for a fundraiser for Louison House, the only homeless shelter in Northern Berkshire County.

But this year as the shelter prepares for its second annual Bunny Run-Walk-Hop to End Homelessness fundraiser on Saturday, April 19, there's another reason to worry that the one 22-bed home in Adams might struggle to meet the needs of the region: the closure of Northern Berkshire Healthcare and

The public library has acquired 'Mill Girl' for permanent display.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Public Library will be the permanent home for the "Mill Girl."

William Oberst's 40-by-50 inch oil painting depicts a young girl working in a cotton mill, and inspired by the photographs of working children Lewis W. Hine took in 1911 at the Eclipse Mill.

New Library Director Mindy Hackner told the trustees last week that fundraising over the past year combined with a donation match from the Hunter family with the city has allowed the painting to remain in the library. The machine the girl is working at was produced by the James Hunter Machine Co.

What if there was actually an exciting new use for the existing hospital building?

What if BMC and decisionmakers determine that the present North Adams Regional Hospital structure is simply too large for the present and declining population in North Adams and Northern Berkshire?

Besides the difficult road to recovery for all of the displaced employees for whom we as a community will need to do our very best to help become either re-employed elsewhere within the region or re-trained for new opportunities, there would then be the enormous task of re-utilizing the existing hospital structure.

What if we as a community and as a county were to re-imagine something radically new, something

The River Street Package Store was torn down on Monday.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The former River Street Package Store bit the dust on Monday.

The two-story building at 177 River St., which also had contained apartments, was demolished after being mostly empty for a number of years.

The structure and business had been owned by the Lora family of Stamford, Vt., for many years. Joseph S. Lora III sold the building to Berkshire Hills Development Co. LLC in December for $250,000; the business was relocated to the east end of River Street, in the former Lopardo's Liquors.

The principal of Berkshire Hills is John S. "Jack" Wadsworth Jr., a partner in the Porches Inn on the

Dr. Alex Sabo encouraged those affected by the hospital's closure to lean on a support 'team.'

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The stopgap measures are in place.

Local banks are working with those who lost their jobs to smooth out finances. Agencies like BerkshireRides are working to make those who need to get to Pittsfield for doctor's appointments have a way to get there. Visiting nurse and hospice services are back up and running in North County.

But none of that takes away from the feeling of trauma the community has experienced with the closure of the North Adams Regional Hospital nearly three weeks ­ ago — trauma that has been experienced by North Adams
