William Kipp wants to pursue a career in the medical field. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — William Kipp had just entered his freshman year at McCann Technical School when he sent the principal and superintendent an email, introducing himself, outlining his plan for after graduation, and asking for their help to prepare him.   "We knew right from the get-go that this was a student with ambition, with drive, with focus, and he's coming in with a game plan. We don't get many emails like that or any emails like that from freshmen. That was a good way to set the tone. We knew we had someone special on our hands," Principal Justin Kratz said.    "Sure


High Winds Threatened to Topple North Adams Christmas Tree
Staff Reports,
12:47AM / Friday, December 16, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Monument Square was closed off for more than two hours on Thursday after high winds caused a guy wire to snap on the city's Christmas tree.

That left the towering pine leaning precariously eastward and toward the Civil War monument.

The last time a holiday tree went down, it took the marble soldier with it.

The 1878 statue's been toppled twice; once from a car accident in 1978 and again in 1999 when the tree went over. Both times, the statue was out of commission for years and both times carefully put back together by Carl Robare of Stamford, Vt.

Employees from Wire & Alarm and the Department of Public Works worked in the bitter 8-degree cold and

'Nocturnal Animals': Subspecies: Human
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
02:38PM / Thursday, December 15, 2016

Imagine you are driving late at night on a desolate country road, hardly a speck of civilization in sight save for an occasional utility pole. It's spooky to begin with, but nowhere near as scary as when a car suddenly appears in your rearview mirror. You make a turn, just to see. The car follows. You make a couple more, random turns. There it is, right behind you. What's the odds? Your paranoia concedes to one of your worst fears realized. Surely you are being followed by the most deplorable, inbred ne'er-do-wells in creation.

Good thing this is merely the fiction within a novel that Susan, the female lead in director Tom Ford's "Nocturnal Animals," is reading.
