NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A man walking his two dogs across the top of Main Street was struck by a small sedan early Monday afternoon.    Although the man was standing and talking with emergency medical technicians and police officers, he was eventually taken by Northern Berkshire EMS for treatment of a shoulder injury. The two dogs, medium-to-large animals, were taken to Greylock Animal Hospital by the animal control officer to be checked out.    The pedestrian was apparently crossing where a crosswalk had been taken out years ago on the eastern side of the Main, Eagle and Ashland streets intersection.   "They were walking across the street and the car came

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. --  MCLA's Mike Demartinis scored 27 points to lead the Trailblazers to a hard fought 80-72 victory over the visiting Worcester State Lancers Saturday afternoon in men's basketball action.    The Lancers (11-11, 4-5 MASCAC) led 37-34 at halftime but MCLA never went away as the game featured 13 lead changes and 10 ties. With the score at 67-66 in favor of WSU with just three minutes remaining, MCLA came back once again.  Demartinis started the late game run with a drive to the hoop to give MCLA the lead.

@theMarket: The Fed Finds Religion
By Bill Schmick,
09:26AM / Saturday, February 02, 2019
After two years of tightening monetary policy, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank signaled this week that it was time to put their monetary tightening program on hold. The stock market soared in celebration.   As we closed out the month of January, stocks are gaining. The October-December declines that culminating in the "Christmas Eve Massacre," which were the worst in 80 years, are rapidly disappearing. Investors who were smart enough to hold fast should be made whole again by the end of this quarter, if not before.   That does not mean that the volatility that has beset the markets of late will fade away. Quite the contrary, I expect the wild swings in the stock market to

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
06:48AM / Saturday, February 02, 2019

The Parlor reopened this past fall with new ownership.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Julia Daly and Nick Tardive spent a lot of time at the Parlor when they were students at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.   "I lived in the apartment upstairs and we both patronized the Parlor basically every single day," Tardive said of the Ashland Street coffeehouse. "So when it closed it felt like there was almost like a black hole in this little area."   The former Brick Oven on Ashland Street long sat vacant before reopening first as the Elf Parlor Cafe in 2009, then the Parlor cafe in 2012, and again in 2016 rebranded as the SereniTea Parlor.   Last

Bernard Will Seek Proposals for Historic Mohawk Theater
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:16AM / Friday, February 01, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Mohawk Theater's marquee has been a beacon of hope, an assurance that eventually its siren call of neon will once more draw crowds to the downtown.    But the hard facts are that the theater's been closed for more than a third of its 81-year lifespan.   It's a landmark that's bedeviled three administrations and outlived several organizations hoping to revive it. It's been a constant in every mayoral election and a question for every council candidate. During that time, the amount of money required to restore the theater has only grown.     Mayor Thomas Bernard, the third mayor to deal with the city-owned
