02:48PM / Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Pianist Emanuel Ax will be at Tanglewood this weekend.

Tanglewood in Lenox is the place to be this week for unforgettable music. Why go? To experience the symphonic and solo concerto masterworks of Mozart, Sibelius and Aaron Copland in the Shed, as well as stirring, not-to-be-missed, stellar performances in Ozawa Hall.

By Grace Lichtenstein, Special to iBerkshires
02:09PM / Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Our focus this week shifts to north county — Williamstown and North Adams. While that might require a bit of a drive for those coming from farther south, I believe it will be worth it as you discover a brand new musical and a masterwork that combines elements of folk, rock and classical.

What Should You Do With an Inherited IRA?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
01:42PM / Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are quite popular. At the end of 2017, investors owned nearly $9 trillion in IRA assets, according to the Investment Company Institute, a trade association of U.S. investment companies. Given these numbers, it probably wouldn't be surprising if you inherited an IRA someday. But what should you do with it?

First of all, you'll need to be aware of some basic rules. If your parent, or anyone other than your spouse, leaves you a traditional IRA – one in which contributions are typically tax-deductible and earnings can grow tax-deferred – you can transfer the money into an "inherited IRA," from which you’ll need to take

Anthony Pettingill and Shirley Vallieres, both of North Adams, check out a big piece of baseball history on Tuesday afternoon.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The players on this year's North Adams SteepleCats are too young to really remember the frustration that preceded the Boston Red Sox' 2004 World Series Championship.   But that did not stop them from being a little awestruck in the presence of history.   On Tuesday, the team stopped by the "One Country, One Game: A Celebration of Baseball" exhibit on Main Street to see the 2004 World Series trophy, which was on loan by the team for the day. Originally, the team had announced it would be sending the

By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
10:59PM / Monday, July 16, 2018

MONTPELIER, VT. —If there has been one needle in the side of the SteepleCats this season, it would have to be falling into early game deficits.

In between home games, the SteepleCats took a road trip up to Montpelier Monday Night to take on their division rivals in the Vermont Mountaineers. With the Mountaineers jumping out to an early 2-0 lead, the SteepleCats came close to coming back but eventually came up short as the Mountaineers’ offense held off North Adams for a 10-5 victory.

A usual relief pitcher, Jeff Hayner made his first start on the mound for North Adams in Monday’s contest. The Mountaineers took advantage of this quickly as Benjamin Bavly roped a triple
