ADAMS, Mass. -- If competitive high school cycling was a thing in this neck of the woods, Evan Arthur might have found the sport sooner.   And he probably would have done quite well for himself.   Instead, all he did in four years at Mount Greylock was help continue the school’s runs of eight straight Western Mass cross country titles and seven straight state Nordic ski crowns.   And in the spring of his senior year, the recent high school graduate found a new athletic pursuit. On Sunday, he joined more than 100 competitors at the 34th annual Pedal & Plod, putting himself to the test against a 4.4-mile running course followed by a 22-mile bike race, all in the hills

Letter: A Nursing Strike at BMC Not in Patients' Interest
Letters to the Editor,
03:00PM / Monday, July 31, 2017
