By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
12:25AM / Saturday, June 09, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —If there has been a thorn in the North Adams SteepleCats side so far this season, that thorn would have to be runners left on base.

The SteepleCats headed down to Newport, RI Friday night, hoping to capture their first win and gain some momentum moving forward, but the Newport Gulls had planned otherwise, shutting out the Cats 8-0 and holding the team to just four hits with eleven runners left on base.

This was the third straight game the SteepleCats utilized four pitchers throughout the contest. Stanley Vargas of New England College made his first start of the season on the hill for North Adams, tossing 3.2 innings and giving up seven of Newport’s fifteen

'Adrift': Cast Away in an Inconvenient Genre
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
05:28PM / Friday, June 08, 2018
If your idea of a good time is anguishing aghast on tenterhooks as a couple of shipwrecked young lovers try to survive against all odds in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, director Baltasar Kormákur's "Adrift," loosely based on a true story, is for you. I, for one, don't really get the thrill, and have yet to receive a satisfactory response from either horror film or disaster flick aficionados when I question their inclination. Neither genre is my cup of tea. Just wondering what the morning mail will bode is more than enough suspense for me. Thus, I surprised myself.   In service to my fellow moviegoers who enjoy the blood pressure rush that film-induced fright

By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
10:47AM / Friday, June 08, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —It was déjà vu for the SteepleCats Tuesday night, as early opposing team offense and pitching put the game just out of reach.

​Fans flocked to Joe Wolfe Field last night for the home opener of the SteepleCats season and were greeted by a great baseball environment to enjoy a game, but also nine Nighthawks runs through the first four innings, leading to a 10-4 win for Upper Valley.

The home team was hindered by errors on the field and eleven runners left on base as it was an uphill battle ever since Upper Valley got two runs across the plate in the first. Three Nighthawks were able to gather three hits each of the team’s thirteen, while

Valedictorian Cady Denning tells the class that Drury has taught them the ingredients they need to make lemonade out of what life throws them. See more photos here.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The class of 2018 first entered Drury High School unsure of what to expect, and perhaps a little disappointed at first.    It wasn't anything like "High School Musical," complained class valedictorian Cady Denning. No one was breaking out in a musical numbers in the hallways, no one was dancing on the tables.    But what the class did get was preparation for the "so-called real world" among the science experiments, math lessons, music and

The Independent Investor: Trump's trade war
By Bill Schmick,
03:52PM / Thursday, June 07, 2018
Over the weekend, the G-7 group of nations met to denounce the recent actions of the United States. This coming Friday, these same leaders convene in Quebec. President Trump will attend and seems determined to face them down.   Ever since the Trump administration announced plans to raise tariffs on imported steel and aluminum by 25 percent and 10 percent respectively, our allies have been livid. Some are referring to the upcoming meeting as the G-6, plus the United States. You've got to hand it to the president, he doesn't back off, but given the circumstances, maybe he should.   I doubt that anyone in this country believes the present trade agreements we have signed

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — NECBL Baseball makes its return to Joe Wolfe Field today as the North Adams SteepleCats host the Upper Valley Nighthawks in the North Adams home opener.

Pitcher Christopher Cepeda of St Thomas Aquinas College makes his start on the mound for the Cats, who maintained a 2.96 ERA after pitching 82 innings this season, helping St Thomas Aquinas capture the East Coast Conference Tournament
