By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:37AM / Tuesday, July 23, 2019
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The owner of the former North Adams Country Club confirmed his plans last week to renovate the clubhouse and recreate a nine-hole course.   And set up a cluster of "tiny homes" to cater to second home owners and vacationers.    The course on River Road has been in limbo for the last eight years as plans to build an 18-hole golf course fell to the wayside, materials were take from the land and a solar array installed.    But owner Todd Driscoll, who came into the picture about four years ago, is still hoping to rejuvenate the course on a smaller scale, he told the Planning Board last week.   "We don't want to make it

Review: 'Working: A Musical' Is Minimalist, Meaningful
By Nancy Salz, Guest Column
11:41AM / Monday, July 22, 2019

Why do we work? It's usually for more than money. To express ourselves, perhaps. To make a better life for our children. To create a legacy. To contribute to our country, our society. We can love our jobs or hate our jobs, but our reasons for working and our emotions about our jobs – which take up so much of our lives – are always deeply felt.

To explore these reasons fully, the author Studs Terkel crisscrossed America in the early 1970s recording more than 130 people in all kinds of jobs, from blue collar to professional. The result was a best-selling book – "Working: People Talk About What They Do All Day and How They Feel About What They Do" (published

Mayor Thomas Bernard thanks Canales and Romano for their efforts with the youth baseball exchange. See more photos here.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The LaFesta Baseball Exchange has been connecting the two ends of the state in this annual celebration of baseball, brotherhood, and youth sportsmanship between the state's smallest and largest cities.    And before the North Adams LaFestas and the North End Dodgers faced off at Joe Wolfe Field on a hot muggy Saturday, the organizers took a moment to remember the idea first broached by John Lipa and Anthony Abuisi nearly three decades ago.    "A lot of times in any community you hear, 'hey you know,

Although Saturday’s action was halted in the top of the sixth inning because of a lightning storm that swept quickly through the area, the teams meet again on Sunday morning for the second game. North Adams will also travel east in August for a pair of games hosted by the Dodgers in

Staff Reports,
06:03PM / Friday, July 19, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The deadline for nomination papers for the city election passed at 5 p.m. on Friday and so  did any chance for a preliminary election.    Instead, voters will decide between two candidates for mayor — incumbent Thomas Bernard and McCann School Committee member Rachel Branch — and 15 candidates for nine at-large seats on the City Council.    "There will be no preliminary election," said City Clerk Deborah Pedercini. "That will save the city some money."   There would have be three candidates for mayor and 19 for council to trigger a preliminary. However, Richard David Greene never returned papers for
