Commissioners don't think the roof can wait years for repair. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Historical Commission is hoping to get some of the leftover funds appropriated last year for capital projects to put toward some much-needed historical preservation.   A priority is the 104-year-old Mount Williams gatehouse, the tower at the reservoir on Pattison Road.    "We don't want anything happening to that," said commission Chairwoman Justyna Carlson at Thursday's meeting.

'White Boy Rick': The Wild, Wild Midwest
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
12:12PM / Friday, September 21, 2018
My dad was a bench seat philosopher who, while a man of measured words, occasionally liked to opine from behind the wheel of our '51 Buick Roadmaster, the one with the Fireball 8 engine.   I look back at it as our quality time. Maybe it was a quick trip to Sears to buy some roofing material, or to get me some White Castle sliders on a night when my mom was just too tired to cook. Or perhaps it was my tutelage entirely planned. Looking through the windshield, Daniel Goldberger explained the passing pageant of humanity.   It could be a little man walking with a very tall woman: "See, there's someone for everyone."   And in a similar point of positivism that

The Independent Investor: Dogs and Their Cars
By Bill Schmick,
04:50PM / Thursday, September 20, 2018
Pet ownership in America is well over 50 percent. Nine out of 10 of these owners view their pet as part of the family. As such, dollars spent on traditional pet ownership areas such as food, veterinary needs and boarding have expanded to include things like exercise and travel. For more and more Americans, that trend has grown to include what cars we purchase.   This hit home for me recently when my wife and I began discussing our next automobile purchase or lease. In times past, our decision may have been based on what vehicles provided the best fuel mileage or winter safety in snow and ice conditions. But this year, it was all about what car would be most appropriate for our

To the Editor:

Here is another way to show your support for the Elizabeth Freeman Center: Take and donate your deposit bottles and cans to the Northern Berkshire Container Redemption Center located at 1000 Massachusetts Ave in North Adams, at the corner of Protection Ave, and tell the helpful people at the counter that you wish to donate the proceeds to the Elizabeth Freeman Center.

(A small amount will also benefit the

"We thought we would get four or five."   Enzien said close to 80 different companies had responded to the project and pulled bid documents so the drastically lower number was surprising.   DA Sullivan & Sons is the low
