LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The state is hiring a parks supervisor for Mount Greylock State Reservation but the individual will likely not be in place by the time the summit and Bascom Lodge open on May 20.    "That's good because in January, we got a letter saying we don't have any money," Mount Greylock Advisory Chairman Cosmo Catalano Jr. said. "It's a nice reversal of fortunes."   The advisory council has been advocating to replace the full-time, year-round supervisor who left last year — but the Department of Recreation and Conservation has been reducing its budget and its staffing.    There was no full-time staff on the

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It's been seven long years since a group of teens approached the City Council advocating for a skate board park. And even longer since skateboarders were limited to where they could manuel and kickflip.   But years are like weeks when it comes to government, said Mayor Richard Alcombright, standing on the footings that will hold the city's newest recreational venue: A skate board and BMX bicycle park.    "I think where we're at today kind of shows you what persistence will do," he said on a sunny Friday afternoon. "We've gone from initial discussions with our kids in the [Northern Berkshire] Community Coalition

While Berkshire County high school student-athletes spin their wheels in the gym and watch the rescheduled and postponed game count grow, area alumnae are well into their spring seasons, most of which started on spring break trips to warmer climes.   The Wesleyan University men’s lacrosse team started its season with a one-goal loss at Bates up in Maine back in early March but went on to play four games in Florida on its way to an 8-1 record.   Senior , a graduate of Mount Greylock, has appeared in three of them. The 13th-ranked Cardinals extended an eight-game winning streak with Wednesday’s 17-13 win over No. 11 Amherst and hosts Williams on Saturday
