Sister's Near-Tragic Tumble Sparks Memories for North Adams Woman
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:22AM / Thursday, September 13, 2018

A picnic at the scenic Cascade falls nearly turned tragic 66 years ago. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The flicks Rachel Branch saw at the Mohawk Theater on an April afternoon more than a half-century ago have fled her memory, but she does remember what someone told her.    "I was standing in the street outside the Mohawk Theater," she recalled recently. "Somone in the street said, 'your sister fell off a cliff.' "   Her sister Judith Ann had tumbled into the 100-foot gorge at the Cascades. The difficulty of her rescue and her near-miraculous recovery filled a page in the former North Adams Transcript and showed up in papers that included The New

Letter: Mayor Should Demand Mass MoCA Restore Children's Work
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Wednesday, September 12, 2018

To the Editor:

I am so upset at what Mass Moca did to the beautiful work that the children did on the bridge pedestals. How dare they cover it over, it broke those children's hearts and upset a lot of people.

I myself am furious with it and the fact that our mayor won't stand up for the children. He should demand the work be redone by the MoCA artist. There are plenty of pictures they can use to restore them. It's horrible that they think they can just do whatever they want. They do not own those pedestals nor do they pay taxes.

I don't know where they get the idea they can just do something like that.

01:11PM / Wednesday, September 12, 2018

You may not be aware of it, but September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. Of course, you probably recognize, at least in a general sense, the importance of life insurance, but do you know the various ways in which it can help you?

Life insurance can play a sizable role in your ability to achieve some important financial goals, such as these:

* Helping your family maintain its lifestyle: If you are married and have young children at home, you and your spouse may need to work. If you were no longer around and your earnings were gone, could your family still afford to live as they do now? Adequate life insurance can help them preserve their lifestyle.

* Helping your children continue

01:17AM / Tuesday, September 11, 2018

An illustration of what the convenience store will look like.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Planning Board on Monday approved plans for a 5,800-square-foot Cumberland Farms with eight pumps on Ashland Street.    The approval paves the way for the city to finalize the purchase-and-sales agreement with Cumberland Farms for the one-acre parcel that was the City Yard for more than a century.   Cumberland Farms last October offered $575,000 for the Ashland Street property, one of six the city put up for sale at the time. The offer was $100,000 more than the appraisal. The Department of Public Works moved out the older complex last year and into the former anodizing

In July 2016, Greylock Federal Credit Union introduced a new debit card featuring the Lee High School Wildcats logo and school colors. Since then, every time a credit union member signed up for a Wildcats debit card, Greylock made a donation to Lee High School, generating $2,130 for the school.

Lee Middle and High School Principal Gregg M.

The Briggsville Water District is served by the Red Mills spring. CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The new Select Board is hitting the pause button on the decision to take over the Briggsville Water District.   Chairman Ronald Boucher and Karin Robert are holding off on any further decisions on hiring a system operator until the October meeting and asked that town counsel review the agreement again.    "I'm not willing to take on something I know nothing about," said Robert at last week's meeting. Her concerns were prompted by a resident who had called and questioned her about why the town was operating a private water system.   The members of the water
