Hockridge and Moulton were both elected in 2002, coming second only to Heather Boulger, who took office in 1998.    "It's kind of

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A chance to be a "United Way hero" — and get a box of homemade cupcakes — drove the School Department's donations to Northern Berkshire United Way across the $10,000 line last week.    The hero was Robin Grandchamp, librarian at Colegrove Park Elementary School, who was first to pledge the $14 that would take it to the $10,000 mark.    "I only wanted to help and I made an initial donation," she said on Monday as she accepted the chocolate cupcakes. "When I heard Ellen [Sutherland's] baked goods were at stake, I couldn't hit that enter fast enough."   Campaign coordinator Ellen

CLARKSBURG, Mass. –  Clarksburg School eighth-graders will host the school's 14th annual Holocaust Exhibit with Terezin survivor Inge Auerbacher on Wednesday night.

English teacher and exhibit organizer Michael Little said this year's exhibit will be different and instead of exploring the Holocaust purely academically, students will create a "poetic puzzle" based on Auerbacher's book "I Am A Star" and the book "I Never Saw Another Butterfly" which is a collection of poetry and art from children that were in Terezin.

"Invention can be a little scarce sometimes especially with such a complex subject, but we find a way to do it

ADAMS, Mass. — The kindergarten classes of Heather Emerson and Robin Poirot at Hoosac Valley Elementary are again offering their knowledge on where to get a turkey how to cook it.    From Cheerio stuffing to proper time and temperature — anywhere from 4 minutes to six days at at least 6 degrees — these children offer a range of recipes for a Thanksgiving turkey.    The photos in the story are from Poirot's class. The main photo at the top is from Emerson's class.        When I buy the turkey, it will be 2 pounds and about as big a Pilgrim kid. Mommy will cook it because she cooks everything. She is a good cook. She

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — A subdued and sparse School Building Committee voted on Monday night to recommend no further votes be taken on the proposed school project.   With that, the group of community members and educators dissolved after two years spent developing the project.   The $19 million renovation and addition project went down to defeat on Saturday at a second special town meeting by a vote of 292-263. It was a record turnout of 555 that weighed on the largest public works project this town of less than 1,700 had ever considered.    "I think they spoke loud and clear," said committee member Edward Denault, who had been a fierce champion of the
