By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Thursday, October 14, 2021
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — School officials have rejected the idea of asking the community whether the school should close and merge with North Adams or try for another renovation project.   Superintendent John Franzoni had recommended a nonbinding resolution on the upcoming special election or at town meeting to take the temperature of the town.   He found no support from town or school officials, or from the teachers.   "At some point, you're going to have to make a decision, the options are running out," he told the School Committee on Tuesday.    Franzoni has been urging the community to make some hard decisions regarding the 60-year-old school,

Letter: Bond for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
07:20PM / Tuesday, October 12, 2021

To the Editor:

I support Lynette Bond as North Adams' next mayor. I trust her experience and personal sensibilities, and believe her leadership would provide a breath of new life to the city.

Lynette Bond has been criticized as not being "from North Adams." This criteria sometimes is seen as between those lifers who "know what North Adams needs" versus those new arrivals having new ideas, new blood, and a vision to make change. I believe Lynette Bond will bring people who have lived here since birth AND those who arrive with the energy, excitement to participate in helping make this small city shine.

Lynette served as a Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras in the

Letter: Jennifer Macksey for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
07:15PM / Tuesday, October 12, 2021

To the Editor:

I am writing to encourage you to cast your vote for Jennifer Macksey as the next mayor of North Adams. I have worked very closely with Jennifer in matters of the Northern Berkshire School Union. Jennifer's success rate for improving our schools has been 100 percent.

I am the chairperson for the Northern Berkshire School Union's joint school committees. Jennifer was hired as business manager for NBSU with her main goal to write grants for the five town school districts. Jennifer went way above and beyond finding grant money for all of the schools. To Jennifer's position as business manager, assistant superintendent was added to her job description as she was

Letter: Support Jennifer Macksey for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
07:09PM / Tuesday, October 12, 2021

To the Editor:

The voters of North Adams have to take advantage of the great opportunity that has been given to them! The decision by Jennifer Macksey to run for mayor will give you the most qualified and experienced candidate to lead North Adams forward.

I had the opportunity to work with Jen while employed by the city Highway Department for 30 years. I first met Jen while she was working at the city landfill selling stickers and composting bins. Then she worked as director of finance/chief procurement cfficer for the city and the became the city tax collector/treasurer. Along with all of this she became the go-between employees and the administration, which at the time was greatly

Letter: Support Bond for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
07:04PM / Tuesday, October 12, 2021

To the Editor:

Dear North Adams friends, I have been following the campaigns for the office of mayor of North Adams and the City Council races from my home in North Carolina. I was moved to send a letter of support for Lynette Bond after seeing a letter sent out by Jennifer Macksey's campaign, which stated that if you like what has happened in North Adams government the past 12 years Jennifer Macksey is not your candidate.

Since I was part of that government for six years, I feel a need to respond this way: What defined our government during the time I served was a willingness to be open and transparent in notable contrast to what came before.

So I feel a need to speak up! This

Letter: Lynette Bond Is My Candidate
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Tuesday, October 12, 2021

To the Editor:

In a recent fund-raising campaign letter to supporters, the Jennifer Macksey for Mayor Committee wrote, "If people are happy with how the city has been run over the past 12 years Jennifer Macksey ISN'T their candidate."

I say ... If you like the way the city has run the past 12 years, Lynette Bond IS your candidate. If you don't like the way the city has run the past 12 years, Lynette Bond IS your candidate. If you liked or disliked any of the past mayors, Lynette Bond IS your candidate.

She will work for all of you despite who you supported, if you were born here or moved here yesterday, knew her in school or just met her. If you are a resident of North

Mid-October to Feel More Like Summer
06:16PM / Tuesday, October 12, 2021
  After a frost scare a couple weeks ago, the weather this week will be more like summer than autumn.    Accuweather says some areas may break records for warm temperatures for October from a high pressure system building across New England.   "As a high pressure system begins to shift into a position just off the Eastern Seaboard on Friday, it will usher in some unusually warm air for mid-October," said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Carl Babinski.   Temperatures will range 10 to 20 degrees above normal but a cold front and wet weather arriving this weekend will bring a more seasonable chill to the air.    The National Weather Service out of
