PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It won't be long before St. Joseph Central High School becomes just another empty building. The artifacts will be shipped off elsewhere and the halls and classrooms will be vacant.   But before that happens, a group of alumni has organized a night to bring everybody back to the high school on Maplewood Avenue for one last send off. On Saturday, June 10, the school will be opened for one last high school dance.   "A few of us thought it would be a good idea to have everybody every affiliated to go through the school one more time," said Mike Messer.   The school will be open from 7 to 11 p.m. with hall monitors showing people around.

"It is a testament to the community at St. Joseph's High School that we remained together ... during this emotionally challenging year ...

LENOX, Mass. — Jeremy Patterson admires the traditional college graduate, the ones who had the foresight and commitment to delve right into higher education.   Patterson is not a traditional graduate. At age 26, neither he nor his wife had even graduated high school. He was out of work and trying to care for their three children. One day in 2007, they packed everything they owned into a 1992 Oldsmobile and left their rural home in Florida, driving to a new home in the Berkshires.   "We were petrified. While staying with a friend, I found work and in a month we had gathered enough money to rent the apartment below him," Patterson said.    The
