PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Today is your day and you will not allow anyone or anything to ruin it.   Ritza Fernandez stood at the podium in the auditorium in Crosby Elementary School on Wednesday night in front of a families, friends, and the graduating Pittsfield Adult Learning Center class.   Repeat after me, she said, "today is your day and you will not allow anyone or anything to ruin it."   For Fernandez nothing was going to hold her back. She never got her high school diploma and instead spent the last 12 years raising her four children. But last February she got in her head that she wanted to get her high school equivalency. She took control in setting

LENOX, Mass. — The "opinionated" Lenox Memorial High School class of 2016 did not disappoint at Sunday's graduation, with speakers addressing contemporary topics rather than future what-ifs.

Valedictorian Grace Ellrodt called on the school and community gathered under The Shed at Tanglewood to reverse the trend of increasingly protective, and restrictive, security policies at the middle and high school.

"Our school has been suspended between the opposing polls of regulation and risk," said Ellrodt, with each successive year seeing increased motivation on keeping students safe. "This class has seen the implementation of more protective measures in our

LENOX, Mass. — PHS Class President Terrance Nykorchuck had two speeches prepared for graduation — a funny one and a serious one.   Both of them had the same theme: reflection on the class of 2016's time in high school, thanks to those who helped, and looking toward the future.   He chose the funny one, jokingly bringing up a boiler explosion, rowdy cheering sections at sports events, a Twitter rivalry with Wahconah, jaywalking at lunch, fooling around in the library, a semi-formal dance at the Itam "and so many other things both appropriate and inappropriate, mostly inappropriate, to talk about on this stage."   "I think we will all be

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Accept adventures.   That's Mayor Linda Tyer's advice to Taconic High School's graduating class. The school held its commencement Sunday, the last one in the current Taconic High School gymnasium.   There, the mayor told the graduates that she is living proof that accepting adventure will lead to a better life.    "I graduated from high school a long, long time ago. Since then I've made mistakes that I regret like walking passed an adventure because I let uncertainty by my guide and because I held on too tightly to my plan. Now I am much better at recognizing adventure and I am much braver at chasing it down,"
