NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- After a week in which it went 1-4 and watched its first place lead disappear, the North Adams SteepleCats could have folded up the tents going into Friday’s rain-rescheduled double-header at the Valley Blue Sox.   After seeing a 2-0 lead evaporate in a 5-2 loss in Game 1, the ‘Cats could have called it a day.   And after going behind, 2-0, two innings into the nightcap, North Adams could have given up.   But the SteepleCats battled back and tied the game, only to drop a heart-breaking 3-2 decision to the two-time defending NECBL champions and miss a shot at the postseason by one game.   “That’s all you can ask for,

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Public Services Department says there's nothing of concern in the brown water that's been coming out of taps around the city.    The city's in the midst of its annual hydrant flushing, which is stirring up minerals in the water mains.    "There is no impact to public health.

Lt. Anthony Beverly with one of the new Felt bicycles. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Police Department has had a bicycle patrol program for nearly 20 years — and that's about how old its bicycles were.    Thanks to Greylock Federal Credit Union, the force now has two brand-new Felt bikes worth about $1,190.60.   "The old bikes, the newest one we had I had as a kid," laughed Officer Nicholas Kaiser. "So, they needed upgrading and this is definitely a very large upgrade."   The department's bike patrols have been spotty over the years, their availability dependent on staffing and scheduling. The biking patrols were tried again last

The Independent Investor: Brexit: The Never-Ending Story
By Bill Schmick,
05:06PM / Thursday, August 01, 2019
Back in 2018, the government of the United Kingdom and the European Union reached an agreement on exactly how the British exit (Brexit) would occur. Since then, despite countless meetings, discussions and votes, the UK Parliament has failed to approve that process. The new date for an exit is Oct. 31.

'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood': The Golden Age, Tarnished
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:26PM / Thursday, August 01, 2019

His unique brand
