Letter: Barrett Best Person to Represent 1st Berkshire
05:34PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017

To the Editor:

Three months ago, we in the First Berkshire district were shocked and saddened by the untimely death of Gailanne Cariddi, our representative in the Massachusetts legislature.

For the two of us, Gail's death was a deeper and more personal loss than it may have been for most others. You see, we lost a good friend and long time colleague as well as a public official.

We had worked with and for Gail for several years. Each of us served on the North Adams City Council with Gail for several terms. When she decided to run for the state representative office, we worked hard on her campaign. And when she was elected, we celebrated with her here and in Boston. Beyond that, we

Letter: Barrett Has Energy, Ideas for 1st Berkshire
05:11PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017

To the editor:

The 1st Berkshire District is ready to lead the state with creative solutions to municipal challenges and rigorous business development. John Barrett III has the ideas, energy, connections, and most importantly, the experience to move our portion of the commonwealth in this direction.

I am proud to say that I was born and raised in the city of North Adams. I attended local schools and graduated from Drury High School in 1993. During this time I watched as Mayor Barrett worked tirelessly – late nights, weekends, whatever was necessary, to transform our City into a center for high quality jobs, education, and continued quality of life.

The proverbial "stamp"

Letter: Blackmer Has Vision For Our Children's Future
05:00PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017

To the Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Lisa Blackmer for state representative. In particular, Lisa's vision for our children's future is one that takes into account decades of being a mother, working in municipal government, and serving on the school council, which she did with my father in the mid-nineties.

Lisa's vision for our educational systems is one that takes into account all the details of the challenges our cities and towns face and meets them head on. Lisa understands that for this region to experience more economic growth, we need to have the best schools around, that for our children to succeed, they need access to broadband, foreign languages, and

Letter: Bosley Strongest Candidate for 1st Berkshire
04:43PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017

To the editor:

Who I vote for in our district state representative primary was considerably harder decision than our choices for mayoral preliminary. We have four candidates that all have qualifications to work in the State House, but none have served in a public elected state level before. When they walk into the chambers their first time they will be a junior state rep starting relationships, networking with incumbents, and making connections.

The word "connections" is key to me when thinking long term. Who do I feel will listen to the citizens in our district versus being influenced by those on the other side of the state, and will take what they hear from us and bring it to

Letter: Towle Most Qualified for State Representative
04:40PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017

To the Editor:

I am supporting Kevin Towle for state representative for the 1st Berkshire District for several reasons.

I have worked with Kevin on the Lanesborough Economic Development Committee. His work ethic on this committee has been extraordinary. He has offered to take on projects involving analysis and research, charting results and has always come through with a final product that is most impressive. He has worked with students at Williams College inviting them to be part of many projects to assist in adding value to our work from the perspective of academia. He offers a lot of energy and knowledge to assist on this team at so many levels.

Knowing that he interned at the age of

Letter: Suicide Prevention Walk Set in Adams
04:00PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017

To the Editor:

Suicide is the second leading cause of death among people between the ages of 10 and 34; it is the only leading cause of death to have increased every year of the past decade. (Statistics provided by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention).

Members of the Berkshire Coalition for Suicide Prevention Board (BCSP) recently met with a group of youths to talk about the risks to the emotional and mental health of young people exposed to deliberately cruel posts on social media. We discussed how forums intended to foster communication can be used to bully others, and how victims of cyber bullying can feel increased isolation and anxiety and experience low

Letter: Tom Bernard Best Bet to Move North Adams Forward
03:00PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017

To the Editor:

I am writing to voice my strong and enthusiastic support of Tom Bernard for mayor of North Adams. Truth be told, I had been hoping this would happen for years.

Despite my longstanding wish to see Tom take on this level of leadership, when I learned from him that he was running I asked him why. I wanted to know his reasons. I could not have been more excited about his response, which could be summed up as this: he believed he could be of use.

Among the many reasons people consider running for office or assuming other types of leadership, this is probably the one I value most. It is a public servant mentality that inspires those who hold it to approach their work

'Brad's Status': What's It All About, Alfie?
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
02:31PM / Thursday, September 28, 2017
In "Brad's Status," Brad Sloan nearly drives us crazy with his unremitting regret and self-doubt as he accompanies his son, Troy, played by Austin Abrams, to look at colleges in Boston. Oh, we all do it. That's how we keep score. It's just that Brad, portrayed by Ben Stiller, is especially effective in showing us how unattractive this practice seems if not kept in check. Still, we are compelled to commiserate, appreciating that Stiller's imaging of the neurotic, 21st century everyman adds an insightful chapter to the human comedy.   Written and directed by Mike White, Brad's travail is entertaining in that alternately painful and bittersweet way, when

10:20PM / Wednesday, September 27, 2017

Town Moderator Bryan Tanner confers with Town Administrator Carl McKinney and Select Board members Jeffrey Levanos, Carlyle 'Chip' Chesbro and Kimberly Goodell.  CLARKSBURG, Mass. — An unprecedented special town meeting on the $19 million school project took a dramatic turn at the end when the vote was so close, town officials turned to legal experts for the solution.    The answer: the article failed by one — one — vote.    The authorization of the borrowing, of which $11.3 million would be reimbursed by the state, required a two-thirds vote.    Exactly 431 votes were cast: 144 were no votes and 287 were yes
