By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
07:08AM / Sunday, July 22, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds knows mountain biking is an emerging industry. But, he also knows people who drive through the Berkshires to get elsewhere for it.   "Mountain biking has been identified as an industry that is growing and we are well positioned for it," Hinds said.   According to New England Mountain Bike's Berkshire County Branch President Alison McGee, there are hundreds of great mountain biking trails throughout Berkshire County. But, most aren't mapped. Unless people are in certain Facebook groups or know others who can show them around, many don't know about them. She knows there are different levels of maintenance being

By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
09:40PM / Saturday, July 21, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —Even though Bryce Harper was crowned the MLB Home Run Derby Champion last Monday, the North Adams SteepleCats and Mystic Schooners certainly made their case for the title on Saturday night.

After a long drive to the coast of Connecticut, the SteepleCats took on the Mystic Schooners in a North vs. South matchup at Robert E. Fitch Senior High School on Saturday night. Behind great nights at the plate by the SteepleCats offense and masterful pitching, the SteepleCats were able to snap a five-game losing streak, defeating the Mystic Schooners 8-4 in a game that had four solo home runs by the two teams combined.

The SteepleCats offense came out early against the

McCann Tech to Overhaul Outdated Website
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
12:10PM / Saturday, July 21, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — McCann Technical School will completely overhaul the school website to bring it up to date and make it more user-friendly.   The School Committee unanimously voted Thursday to allocate $25,000 from the tuition account to hire Finalsite to create a new website for the school.   "We have had a lot of problems with the website ... the website is probably 20 years old and it is using a system that we cannot access to change things," Superintendent James Brosnan said. "So when you visit the School Committee site you will see some old friends in the photos."   Brosnan said there was a small website update 10 years ago but much of the

09:43PM / Friday, July 20, 2018
DALTON, Mass. -- The Dalton CRA Invitational Softball Tournament has grown four-fold in nine years, and there is one reason why.   "The biggest thing is just the volunteers," CRA Director of Recreation Dustin Belcher said. "I have an incredible committee of people who really give so much time and effort -- most of them do not have kids playing this weekend, but they've been here since their kids started, and they've kind of stuck it out.   "They've focused on all the other stuff so I can focus on recruiting and getting teams here."   It is a 15-person committee that helps Belcher stage the event, which got under way on Friday night and

@theMarket: Markets Remain Range-Bound
By Bill Schmick,
04:18PM / Friday, July 20, 2018
It's the same old song. It has been playing over and over since the end of January. Higher interest rates, a stronger dollar, and, of course, the inevitable and meaningless stream of tweets from our Tweeter-in-Chief are keeping stocks range-bound. How long will this condition persist?   Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index have now posted their longest consolidation since 1984. The two indexes have been in correction territory for 113 trading days. That is a longer stretch than we have seen in decades — including the period of the 2008 Financial Crisis.   In 1984, it took the S&P 500 Index 122 days to emerge from the swamp, while the Dow

Symptoms of Summer
09:16AM / Friday, July 20, 2018

Here in the Northeast, we love the sun (when it finally comes out). While soaking up the rays and warm temperatures can feel great, there is a common tendency to overdo it. If you have ever lost track of time and gotten a sunburn or felt dizzy when getting up from your beach chair, you know it's true.

Below are a few quick reminders for enjoying summer without the most common health-related pitfalls.

Pass the water. Dehydration is one of the most common summer health problems, especially among the elderly and athletes. It happens when we don't have enough fluid in our bodies to perform basic functions. While the problem can happen year round, it is more common when the weather is

By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
08:43AM / Friday, July 20, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — As the New England Collegiate Baseball League season nears its end, the North Adams SteepleCats will welcome former Negro League and Major League Baseball player Pedro Sierra as a special guest at their last Sunday home game of the season on July 22nd.

The following three years Sierra spent time on the Detroit Stars, one of the four remaining Negro League teams at the time. As the Stars didn’t have a stadium of their own, they played in Briggs Stadium, the home of the Detroit Tigers, when that team was on the road.
