GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. -- Like a lot of high school kids, Thomas Fraser settled in for a boring day on a gray August Monday.   But his definition of boring was a little different than most.   His definition included firing three birdies and carding a 2-over-par round of 73 at Egremont Country Club to win the Berkshire County Junior Allied Championship.   “It all went pretty well. I think I tried to make a lot of pars,” Fraser said. “I wanted to play a boring round.   “It was a nice course, so I was able to make a couple of birdies that I hit in there with the approach shot.”   Fraser of Greenock Country Club recorded birdies on the

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Monday, August 13, 2018
  DALTON, Mass. — The state Legislature relaxed a bit in the early hours of Aug. 1 as the formal legislative session was ready to close.   But, wait, wait. State Rep. Paul Mark had one more bill -- a land taking for the town of Northfield intended to help local farmers.   "I was able to hold the House and the Senate open until after 1 in the morning on the last day of the session because it was an important bill. It had to be done before we adjourned," Mark said, joking about the change in his popularity among legislators as that night waned.   The Peru Democrat is wrapping up his fourth term in the House of Representative.
