NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The School Committee on Tuesday night voted to offer a short-term contract to Business Manager Nancy Ziter — at least until they can find someone to replace her.    Ziter is scheduled to retire on Dec. 31, but Superintendent Barbara Malkas informed the committee there has been difficulty in hiring a qualified, licensed candidate.     "We have some options, we would be able to work out a waiver to have [Ziter] continue beyond her retirement date ... we could go the way of Williamstown and Lanesborough and hire a consultant, they did with Management Solutions," she said. "Doing one of those two things while we really think

Ellen Sutherland gives Hockridge a hug.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — They've served through three superintendents, two mayors and with more than a dozen other School Committee members.    It's been a long 16 years for Mark Moulton and John Hockridge but they will always have that time engraved in their minds and, now, on presentation clocks given to mark their departures from the committee.    The School Department said farewell to the second longest-serving members of the board on Tuesday night. 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.
