By Stephen Dravis, Sports
08:23PM / Sunday, July 02, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- One Tuesday, the North Adams SteepleCats will cap their game with the traditional fireworks show.   The team’s fans only can hope the team will not save all the fireworks for the end.   Vermont’s pitchers scattered nine hits and stranded eight runners Sunday en route to a 3-2 win over the SteepleCats at Joe Wolfe Field.   The loss was North Adams’ fourth in its last five games, a stretch in which it has scored just 10 runs.   “We’re getting hits, but we’re just not getting the big hit,” SteepleCats coach Stu Pederson said after his team slipped to 8-11 this summer. “We’re not getting one when we

Boards, bikes and scooters were on hand for the park's opening on Saturday. See more photos here.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Any doubt that a skate board park would not be welcome, or used, by the younger community was put to rest on Saturday afternoon as dozens of boarders and bikers sped and flipped in a chaotic ballet across the smooth expanse of concrete and launched into the air.    "I think the turnout speaks for itself," Brandy LaBelle, one of the initial movers of the park, said. "Look at everyone that's here today for this, look at all the different age groups that are working together, that are being united and I think that's

The mountain peaks are made from connected triangles. Sambruce began assembling the pieces in April for the mid-June opening. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Artist Wesley Sambruce brings his reflections on the Hoosac Tunnel to life in Kidspace with an interactive sculpture that asks children and adults alike to explore courage.   Lofted in Kidspace in the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Sambruce built a portal into another world. Flipping back the tunnel's heavy veil opens to meandering pathways paved with poetry, crawlways dropping off into unexplored caverns and open vestibules with hanging tendrils — all inspired by the 4.75-mile Hoosac

'Beatriz at Dinner': Manifesto Under Glass
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
04:31PM / Friday, June 30, 2017
There isn't any doubt what writer Mike White had in mind when he penned "Beatriz at Dinner."   His insightful parable, brought to life by Miguel Arteta's skillful direction and a superb cast starring Salma Hayek in the title role, takes place at the very crux of humanity's social ills.   Expect diagnosis, but alas, no cure. You see, beneath the dramatic layers, both disingenuously polite and blatantly hateful, it's about the money. As my rich big sister Ann says, "It's always about the money, especially if they say it's not about the money."   Oh, it wasn't much different before we invented the stuff. Back then, the love of
