Heroes. Perhaps the word conjures a superhuman figure, like those portrayed in Hollywood films. But real-life heroes live and work among us every day.    Educators, nurses, social workers, firefighters, police officers, respiratory care practitioners, and other essential workers in the Berkshires have been on the front lines of the pandemic since its inception. Many of these everyday heroes were trained in our backyard at Berkshire Community College (BCC). They relied on BCC as an affordable, flexible way to earn certificates or degrees in their fields, or as a stepping stone to transfer to a four-year college.      The Fire Science program at BCC focuses on fire

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Thursday voted to accept the low bid for a contract to make gender equity and accessibility improvements to the middle-high school playing fields after the bidder agreed to trim the project by $93,500.   Last week, the school district opened two bids for work to bring the school's ball fields into compliance with the Americans with Disability Act and Title IX. But the School Committee balked at a bottom line that was 22 percent above the architect's estimate.   Art Eddy of Traverse Landscape Architects and administrators of the school spent the last few days looking for ways to scale back the

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee on Wednesday voted to ask bidders on an athletic field contract to "sharpen their pencils" and come back to the district with ideas for cost savings.   This week, the district opened bids from two respondents to a request for proposals to bring the middle-high school's playing fields into compliance with Title IX and the Americans with Disabilities Act.   In a development reminiscent of the School Committee's stalled efforts to complete a more ambitious athletic field project, both bids came in above estimate.   In April, the committee discussed an estimated price tag of $1,087,026
