02:45PM / Tuesday, October 10, 2017

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — State and local police are investigating a reported armed home invasion on Washington Avenue.

North County Goes to Polls for State Representative Primary
03:52AM / Tuesday, October 10, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Voters in much of North County head to the polls today to select the Democratic Party nominee for the 1st Berkshire District.    Only one winner will emerge in the state representative special election primary between John Barrett III, a former mayor; Stephanie Bosley, daughter of a prior holder of the seat; Lisa Blackmer, a city councilor; and Kevin Towle, a legislative aide.   More on the candidates can be found on our election page.   Based on past voting performance, Tuesday's winner could well be considered the presumptive state representative, although it's possible Republican candidate Christine Canning could pull an upset in the

Letter: Blackmer Will Be Dedicated, Passionate Public Servant
Letters to the Editor,
05:57PM / Monday, October 09, 2017

To the Editor:

My wife, Lisa Blackmer, is the most loving, hard-working, passionate person I know and she should be the
next representative for Northern Berkshire.

When we were married 30 years ago, our family included my children from a previous marriage. Lisa loved them and raised them as her own. I watched her take care of them when they were sick, shuttle them to football games, band and numerous other activities, and teach them all that she knows. She never once complained when I had to work long shifts or spent 15 months guarding the governor.

Working as a state trooper covering the whole region, I worked hard to keep the people of Northern Berkshire safe and meet their needs

Letter: Barrett Will Help Cheshire as State Representative
Letters to the Editor,
05:43PM / Monday, October 09, 2017

To the Editor:

This last year the parents of Cheshire children faced terrible choices. Because a lack of planning and more important a lack of state funding for our schools, we were forced to close our local school. Rather then see their small children spend hours on the bus to schools in Adams or see their young children mixed with high school students, parents chose to move or take their children out of the HVRSD [sic] or even move out of town.

We need leadership that will make sure that funding is made available to re-open our local school, not only for children but to help Cheshire grow.

Others in the past have promised to,help, but paid little attention to needs of Cheshire. I urge

Northern Berkshire United Way Sets Annual Campaign Goal
By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Monday, October 09, 2017

James White II, the new executive director of BArT Charter Public School, speaks about community at the NBUW breakfast.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — There was a lot of talk about numbers at the Northern Berkshire United Way annual meeting and campaign kickoff breakfast on Friday.

Twenty: the number of member agencies the NBUW funds. Eighteen-thousand: the number of Northern Berkshire individuals served through these agencies. Five-point-eight percent: the increase from the last year of this year's goal.

And, of course, the biggest one of all: $470,000. That number represents the campaign goal, which is a 5.8 percent increase — or $26,000 — over last year's

Letter: Blackmer Best to Carry on My Sisterís Legacy
Letters to the Editor,
09:54PM / Sunday, October 08, 2017

To the Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Lisa Blackmer for state representative. I believe she is the best
candidate to fill the unexpired term of my sister, Gail.

Gail was committed to her district and the constituents she worked hard to serve. Lisa has that same dedication, compassion, and work ethic. She has gone above and beyond to advocate for our region in Boston through the Massachusetts Municipal Association and work hard right here at home as a city councilor.

Gail always fought the good fight and took on the tough challenges. She saw her role as one that should bring people together to solve problems and make progress for our district. Her legacy is one of grace,

Letter: Blackmer Best Choice to Succeed Cariddi
Letters to the Editor,
09:26PM / Sunday, October 08, 2017

To the Editor:

Lisa Blackmer is the perfect candidate to follow the irreplaceable Gailanne Carriddi.

Rep. Carriddi was a strong voice for women during her too-brief career in the State House, and I believe that North Adams City Councilor Lisa Blackmer is a worthy successor to represent the district in the House. She mirrors Gail's public service to her home city; she has both public and private business experience and a deep commitment to North Berkshire.

I am not a resident in the district, but the Berkshire County legislative contingent has always hung together in its advocacy for our home county. I have always felt that my friend Gail represented me, too. I miss her sorely and want

SVMC Grant Enables Data Collection to Boost Patient-Centered Care
By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:05PM / Sunday, October 08, 2017

Officials from Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, Southern Vermont Health Care and the Aircast Foundation gather in the SVMC Orthopedics office in Bennington, Vt., on Thursday. Right, the plaque marks the new collaboration.

BENNINGTON, Vt. — In 1950, Barbara Houle injured her leg in a skiing accident. She couldn't straighten or bend her knee, and the surgical solution at the time involved removing all the cartilage. That, however, had its own side effects.

"As I got older … it was bone on bone. The noise was worse than the pain," Houle said. "The pain I had I could cope with."

But this past summer, Houle's husband went to the Southern

Q&A: House Candidates Field Questions Ahead of Special Election Primary
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
07:33AM / Sunday, October 08, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — On Tuesday, the voters in the Democratic primary for the 1st Berkshire seat in the House of Representatives will choose from among four candidates who share many of the same policy positions but offer very different backgrounds.   John Barrett III, Lisa Blackmer, Stephanie Bosley and Kevin Towle each brings something different to the table as they vie to take on presumptive Republican nominee Christine Canning in November's special election to fill the seat once filled by deceased Rep. Gailanne Cariddi, D-North Adams.   Towle and Bosley are relative newcomers to electoral politics, but the former is the legislative aide in Cariddi's office, and

50th Greylock Ramble This Weekend
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
04:56PM / Saturday, October 07, 2017
ADAMS, Mass. — The Greylock Ramble turns 50 this Columbus Day weekend with Ramblefest returning Sunday and the hike up Mount Greylock on Monday.   Back in 1965, a group of residents covertly named Operation Wonderful Town, chaired by Adams resident, businessman and champion Thunderbolt skier Bill Linscott, formed with the charge of organizing an annual hike to the summit of Mount Greylock.   And 50 years later, ProAdams has taken over where Operation Wonderful Town left off and hundreds still make the trek every Columbus Day.   "These events are important to Adams," ProAdams member Ray Gargan said. "Not only do they provide unique activities for the
