Tied 8-8 heading into the 8th inning, the Blue Sox were able to sneak another run and hold off the powerful SteepleCats offense to escape with a 9-8 victory over North Adams.

As they have done recently, the SteepleCats got their offense in motion early against the Blue Sox. Facing Valley’s starting Endy Morales for the second time,

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:17AM / Monday, July 23, 2018

The developers of the Tourists motel complex are asking that all of the various parcels be zoned under one designation.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council is expected to vote on a zoning ordinance change on Tuesday that will affect a large swath of land on both sides of the Hoosic River in Blackinton.    The landowner's petition, by the developers of The Beyond Place LLC, would convert two industrial zones and one residential zone to align with an existing commercial (CC-1) zone.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Thomas Wickham describes himself as a "realist" and a "moderate" and is looking for a seat in the state Senate.   Eleven years ago he received a tax bill that frustrated him. But instead of just getting mad and complaining about it, he got involved.    "After I got my taxes, I was kind of mad. I figured I wanted to get involved and figure out what is going on," Wickham said. "I started on the Planning Board 10, 11 years ago learning how zoning goes and how we zone businesses in town, whether we are friendly or not."   That experience led him to get involved with the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission.

12:36AM / Monday, July 23, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Even as the record shows otherwise, the SteepleCats looked as they could contend against anyone with the level of play they showed over their last two games.

In their final matchup of the season, the Upper Valley Nighthawks came back to North Adams on Sunday to face off against the North Adams SteepleCats. Using just two arms as they did in the prior game, the SteepleCats rolled to a 4-2 victory as timely hitting and commanding led North Adams to their 14th win.

Unlike more recent games, the first two innings feel quiet for both teams. But after leaving runners on the base path in each inning, the Nighthawks finally struck first on the scoreboard in the top
