NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Brandon Rousseau won the 18th annual Jocelyn E. LeClair Memorial Scholarship Race on Sunday at Windsor Lake.   Rousseau covered the 5-kilometer course in 21 minutes, 4 seconds, nearly a minute ahead of the field.   The runner up — and first woman across the line — was April Varellas, who finished in 22:00.   A small but hearty contingent of runners participated in the event, and though the skies threatened rain, the weather held off for the event, which raises scholarship money for students at Drury High School and Hoosac Valley Regional High School plus the YMCA’s summer camps and the ROPES camp.   The JEL was started nearly

The 2019 season did not go the way anyone in the American International College men’s lacrosse program may have wanted.   But the program will not soon forget the contributions made by graduating senior Quinn Caesar.   Caesar, a graduate of Wahconah, wrapped up his collegiate career last month when the Yellowjackets ended an 0-16 campaign.   Look beyond those numbers, though, and you see an impressive story.   Caesar set a school record with 63 games played in four years and finished as AIC’s all-time leading scorers among midfielders with 56 goals, and he is eighth on the school’s scoring chart at his position with 79 points.   He scored his final

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The City Council agreed to cover the funding gap in the Clapp Park renovation project.   The city had found itself short by about $150,000 for the park's planned restoration. The project entails the installation of a splash pad, improvements to the baseball field, and restoring the bathroom.   It once encompassed more but had been scaled back after bids came in too high in the fall. The latest version of the project was recently bid and the response also came in too high so the council is filling the gap.   "This is not the position we wanted to be in but this project was bid twice and the bids came in higher than anticipated," Parks

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — After bids came in too high twice, the City Council is being asked to up the city's contribution toward the renovation of Clapp Park.   The city had received a $400,000 state grant to undertake a massive restoration of the West Housatonic Street park. That was matched by city funds for bathrooms, the community preservation act funding, $180,000 donation from the Rotary Club, and a $5,000 donation from Carr Hardware.   But, it is not enough. Parks and Open Spaces Manager Jim McGrath said the project is about $150,000 underfunded after the most recent bids were opened. The project has to be done by the end of June or else the city will lose its starting
