Lawrence Lowers Course Record at Stamford Valley
06:11PM / Wednesday, August 23, 2017
STAMFORD, Vt. -- Matt Lawrence this month broke the course record at Stamford Valley Golf Course with a 9-under-par round of 27 on the nine-hole course.   Playing from the white tees, the Drury High School graduate lowered by two strokes the record of 29 set by Sean Cota in 2015.   The record stood at 31 for more than three decades, a mark set by Bob Sherman, who carded that score from the blue tees in 1982.   Two weeks after breaking the course record for a full nine holes on Aug. 7, Lawrence recorded a hole-in-one on the 230-yard, par 3 seventh hole. His shot was witnessed by Larry Chenail and Reggie Roy.   It was the second ace in three days at the course.   On

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:54AM / Wednesday, August 23, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday approved an initial step toward the sale of some 218 acres in Vermont that was part of the Broad Brook watershed.    But it rejected unanimously an offer for the city's salt yard.    Mayor Richard Alcombright had tried four years before to put the Pownal, Vt., land on the market along with several other parcels.    "We don't see any real use for it for the city," he told the council. "It is part of a watershed and in a sense, we don't protect anymore. It's abutting some sanctuary land and also some land preserved or owned by the state of Vermont. ... It just doesn't have

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:28AM / Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Mayor Warren took a swing through the Berkshires last week.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Setti Warren wants to bring his brand of management — budgets based on outcomes and consensus building — to Beacon Hill to fix the state's economic woes.

During his eight years as mayor of Newton, he righted that city of 88,000 by eliminating a $40 million structural deficit, raising $20 million in reserves and putting it on the path to building five new schools. And he did one of the hardest things in Massachusetts: Get a Proposition 2 1/2 override passed for not one, but three ballot initiatives for education, public safety and infrastructure.

"We were open and honest and
