NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Garrett Rhoads was inspired when he looked into a little box on a piano, wondering what it was.    The box held a spool of perforated paper to make the piano play.    "I knew what it was because I have seen them before," the Pine Cobble School eighth-grader said. "I just, I loved how it looked. And so I wanted to do something with it."   He unspooled the paper and liked the movement it made as it fluttered. So he created a waterfall of four pieces with an accent in the middle of printed words and fingerprints.    "We were using ink and I actually got it on my fingers and I put it on my piece of paper

A full presentation of the findings will be made in Clarksburg on May 15 at 6:30 p.m.; the committee and stakeholders will meet with PCG representatives next week for a four-hour workshop to go through the findings and
