  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Originally called the North Adams Normal School, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts was founded to train public school teachers.   True to that heritage, today's MCLA faculty members take seriously their role as educators.

"Jaime" Birge said recently. "Faculty aren't always as uniformly committed to that purpose as our faculty here. Literally, every

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The future of WTBR-FM is still uncertain.   The radio station "Brave FM," stationed at Taconic High School, was once under threat of being silenced because of budget and interest.

Program Director Shirley Edgerton said Tyler Scott has overcome challenges in the last few years and has become a mentor in the Youth Alive Drum Corp. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Not all students have it easy.   Many of the city's youth come from troubled circumstances, either at home or elsewhere. They can fight through that and persevere, but often, they feel like nobody cares. There are no headlines touting of their success like star athletes or those reeling in scholastic awards. There is no recognition or congratulations.   But they are important and the Pittsfield Prevention Partnerships wants them to know that. At Third Thursday, the organization presented two such
