The consensus at the end was to push forward with an updated application to the Massachusetts School Building Authority to address the building's many

Neal about her application to the U.S.  Air Force Academy.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It's not often teens have a chance to quiz their congressman.    So the students in Stephanie Kopola's college-level world history class spent some time developing the questions they wanted to pose to U.S. Rep. Richard Neal on Tuesday.   "They generated questions based on what interested them," Kopola said. "Then they voted on the ones that really encompassed what they were interested in."   Many of the questions, not surprisingly, dealt with current events and topics that could affect their futures: border
