Holyoke Mayor Morse Challenges Neal In Congressional Race
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Morse is joined by a large crowd of supporters at the Unicorn Inn on Monday night. HOLYOKE, Mass. — They said he couldn't do it.   There is no way a 21-year-old, turning 22, could defeat an incumbent mayor with years of political experience. And there was no way the city of Holyoke was ever going to be as good as it had been.   "When I ran for mayor eight years ago, people had a few things to say. They said No. 1, wait your turn. No. 2 maybe run for something else. Or No. 3, don't run at all, you are too young, too gay, too progressive, you are not going get elected here in the city of Holyoke," Alex Morse said at the Unicorn Inn on Monday night to a

Rejuvenated Clarksburg Golf Course Eyed for Off-Grid Living
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,

By Rick Duteau, iBerkshires.com Sports
10:17PM / Saturday, July 20, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — North Adams struck just before Mother Nature did on Saturday night, as the local team rallied to a 9-5 victory over the Boston North End Dodgers, just before weather shortened the first game of the annual LaFesta Baseball Exchange at Joe Wolfe Field.   The two sides met for the 29th straight season in the yearly event in which each club travels for a two-game series. 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
