STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Norman Rockwell Museum has begun the Berkshire County Student Passport Program, part of a comprehensive effort to reach out and engage many more young people in the region with the museum, and to introduce them to Norman Rockwell, who lived the last 25 years of his life in Berkshire County.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The students at E3 Academy saw a problem with hunger and came up with a solution: a mini-food pantry.

Inspired by the proliferation of Little Lending Libraries in the region, the Give Food Take Food pantry box outside the Vietnam Veterans Post 54 is stocked with canned goods with the idea that people who need it will use it.

"We were doing, 'what are problems in the community?' and we found one of them is people in North Adams don't know where to get food or are struggling to get food," said student Joey Butler. "So we decided to make it easier by putting this out here and putting food in it."

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It was very much a passing of the torch — or really the lamp — on Wednesday as most of the newly graduated licensed practical nurses were pinned by colleagues and friends, parents and siblings.


"The pin signifies the end of all your formal studies and the beginning of your nursing career," main speaker Lorraine Mancuso told the graduates at McCann Technical School. "There are technical skills to master and work environments to adapt to, but the most important application of your skill set will not be the expertise with which you apply them but with the sensitivity and the compassion you show patients under your care."
