Richard C. Cox made a meteoric rise from a $90-a-month draftsman on Pittsfield’s 14 million-gallon Farnham Reservoir dam — an undertaking in the town of Washington that cost the city of Pittsfield $386,206 in 1911, $180,838 in 1912 and more before construction was completed.
I don’t think all these people — many of whom performed quite well before in crises and amid uncertainty — are, or suddenly became, idiots. Here’s a more generous interpretation: Change makes fools of us all, and we are living through an era of change. Three changes, in particular, are worth thinking about right now.
Mitchell Chapman: Should students get a vote on public school committees? State colleges' student trustee model offers insight
A recently introduced bill that would let student representatives vote on Massachusetts school committees has drummed up expected support from students but opposition from their elders. Critics of this bill need only look at the state's public college and university system to see how such a dynamic could work.
Thinking about soil, hoes and seeds makes the mountains of snow around the driveway more acceptable.
The stakes will be higher for March Madness this year in some states. People in Ohio, Kansas, Massachusetts and Maryland will be able to cast online bets on the NCAA basketball tournament for the first time. A total of 33 states and the District of Columbia now allow at least some form of sports wagering. States have moved rapidly to enter the market since a U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowed it almost five years ago. States with mobile betting appear to be banking bigger bucks than those that allow only in-person sports wagers. The prospects are mixed for expanding sports betting to additional states this year.
Parts of New England and New York are digging out of a nor’easter that caused tens of thousands of power outages, numerous school cancellations and whiteout conditions on the roads. The storm began Monday night and lasted throughout Tuesday, dumping as much as 3 feet of snow and gusty winds. Others got just a few inches or a wintry mix. As of Wednesday evening, about 67,000 customers in the region were without power. Search teams located two hikers stranded in heavy snow in Massachusetts, and game wardens rescued a family that became stranded on a Maine lake while ice fishing.
Some of the last vestiges of the COVID-19 emergency declaration will end in May when Gov. Maura Healey will lift the modified public health emergency and walk back a vaccine mandate for tens of thousands of executive branch workers.
A new unit to help police improve coordination in handling missing and unidentified people cases has been proposed by Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey amid an ongoing search for a recent immigrant whose case adovates say demonstrates a lack of urgency on the part of investigators. The $300,000 Healey has proposed will help fund the unit, which she said will assist local police departments and standardize data collection and reporting in missing people cases. The push comes as investigators search for a recent immigrant and Boston woman missing since last November. Boston police didn't issue a missing person alert until Jan. 12.

Corned beef and cabbage can be enjoyed whenever you want and the same is true about corned beef hash. But, if you happen to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a meal of corned beef, cabbage and potatoes, making a corned beef hash over the course of the next day or two is a great way to get rid of the leftovers.
