Letter: Come Together to Support Mount Greylock

As parents of Mount Greylock students, we have seen how desperately a new building is needed and how much work it takes the staff and students to teach and learn in challenging circumstances. We have also seen the communities of Lanesborough and Williamstown come together time and again to support their students. Parents raise money for teams and fill the cheering section at many sporting events.

Letter: Vote for Mount Greylock Regional High School

Martha and I chose to come to Williamstown some 40 years ago in 1976 with three children aged 9, 7 and 2. Our decision came in large part because of the reputation of the Williamstown and Mount Greylock school systems. Here our children, and now grandchildren, have received outstanding educations that enabled them to attend colleges of their choice that they might not have otherwise.

Letter: The Bus Ride Home

As the parent of a current Mount Greylock Regional School student, I have followed the news, social media, and unwavering advocacy for, and unyielding protests against, the health and safety of the school my son loves. I have found myself frustrated and hopeful, excited and disappointed, energized and exhausted by the emotional roller coaster that has ensued for over a year.

Letter: Lanesborough Debt Exclusion Vote Best Option

Some of those opposed to passage of the debt exclusion vote in Lanesborough on Tuesday, March 15, have been widely circulating the outrageous claim that the cost of the project is "$150,000 per Lanesborough student."

Letter: Lanesborough Voters Should Vote Yes

I am from Lanesborough. I went to Mount Greylock Regional School. I graduated with honors. I went to college, obtained a master's, eventually a doctorate, and now am a professor.

Letter: Vote Yes For Mount Greylock Plan

The giant sign saying you should vote no and wait for a better plan in May is simply false. To have a different and lower-priced project would require another feasibility study approved by the state before it could be brought to the towns, taking upwards of another 10 years.

Letter: Asks Neighbors to Vote YES

My family and I fully support the current plan to build a new and renovated Mount Greylock Jr./Sr. school. It is either pay now, with financial help, or pay MORE later, with no help. The long view wins.

Letter: City Cab Is a Good Company

I been wanting to do this for a long time. I am very good friends with Sue and Mike at City Cab. I will tell you, you can't meet better people anywhere.

Letter: Sanders Stands for Social, Economic Justice

Last Monday, I had the opportunity to hear Bernie Sanders speak at the Mullen Center at the University of Massachusetts. His analysis of what happened to the American economy in the financial crisis of 2008 is right on the money.

Letter: Why I Am Voting for Hillary Clinton on March 1

I first met Hillary Clinton in 1992 in Pittsburgh at a Bill Clinton rally during his first presidential campaign. Hillary shook my hand warmly with both of hers and thanked me for attending. For the next 24 years, I watched her campaign for senator from New York, her run for the presidency in 2008, and her service in the Obama administration as secretary of state from 2008-2012.

Letter: Commuters Need to Slow Down

This is not the Autobahn, there is a speed limit. Leave earlier so you won't have to drive like an idiot and put other drivers at risk.

Letter: Residents Should be Informed Before Mount Greylock Vote

Greetings. I have the privilege of serving on the Mount Greylock Regional School Committee. I attended the Lanesborough Board of Selectmen meeting on Monday, Jan. 25. I was heartened that the board allowed many audience members to speak, balancing the desire to hear our voices and move through a lengthy agenda. I was allowed to state my views several times, and I thank them for that courtesy and for scheduling a vote on the building project on March 15. I strongly urge members of both our towns...

Letter: Thanks to NAFD for Fire Preparation Campaign

I would like to thank the three members of the North Adams Fire Department, Lt. Goodman, firefighters Sherman and Lamarre, who in a very professional way came to my home with a member of the American Red Cross and updated my smoke alarms and added a carbon monoxide alarm.

Letter: Thanks to the Drury Basketball Team

Hopefully most of the kids learned from them to help with their basketball skills.
