BART Boys Basketball Rallies, Falls Short in League Title Game
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
06:51PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- You know a program has arrived when moral victories just don’t cut it.   In that sense, the BART basketball team has arrived.   Moments after losing its league championship game on a late 3-pointer after rallying from 11 points down midway through the third quarter, the Wolf Pack players were quiet, dejected and, perhaps at some level, thinking about how they can change the script next season.   Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School knocked down a triple with 6.2 seconds on the clock to take a 39-38 win over a young but resilient BART squad and claim the B Division of the River Valley Athletic League.   “It's amazing what

Staff Reports,
04:31PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Town officials on Wednesday opened six bids for repairs to a 200-foot culvert that has failed near Gleason Street.   Wheeler Brook runs from north of Gates Avenue and then under North Houghton, Gleason and School streets and down into North Adams to empty into the Hoosic River.    The failure of the underground culvert has cased a collapse at Gleason. The estimated value of the project was $40,000 but only two bids came close to that amount.    D.F. Lane Landscaping and Adams Excavating had the lowest base bids at $48,472.36 and $49,400, respectively.    Also bidding are A.J. Virgio Construction, with the highest amount at

The Independent Investor: Time to Hedge Your Bets?
By Bill Schmick,
03:41PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
Over the last few weeks, the threat of rising inflation has triggered a great deal of concern among investors. Given that inflation has been at a low level for a number of years, their concern may be justified.   Many market pundits were surprised by the wage data in the non-farm payroll report for December, which was released two weeks ago, Friday. In that report, wages jumped far more than most expected coming in at a 2.9 percent annualized growth rate.   Given that our central bank monitors wages as one of their key indicators to gauge future inflation, that number sent the bond and stock markets into a tizzy. Again this week, investors received another inflationary surprise

'Peter Rabbit': Hop to It!
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:25PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
The kids whooped and hollered in gleeful approval of director Will Gluck's adaptation of Beatrix Potter's "Peter Rabbit." This even included the 10-to-12 contingent, usually too sophisticated to admit endorsement of an entertainment that might indict them of liking "baby stuff." And while the littler ones among the audience of fully engaged firstnighters whose space I recently invaded brought fingernails to lips whenever the title character risked cottontail and whiskers for ill-gotten vegetation, they, too, were otherwise charmed.      I was heartened by several insights, not the least of which was the erudition evinced by these young moviegoers

Guest Column,
03:00PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018

To the Editor:

February is American Heart Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking is a leading cause of heart disease. Smoking can:

• Raise triglycerides (a type of fat in your blood) • Lower "good" cholesterol (HDL) • Make blood sticky and more likely to clot, which can block blood flow to the heart and brain • Damage cells that line the blood vessels • Increase the buildup of plaque (fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances) in blood vessels • Cause thickening and narrowing of blood vessels

Smoking can lead to the narrowing of blood vessels and high blood pressure and quitting smoking greatly

Gen. George Washington taking command of the Continental Army in Cambridge in 1775.

Washington was born in 1732 (or Feb. 11, 1731, according to the old-style calendar) in Colonial Virgina. A Founding Father, he would lead the new nation as head of the Continental Army in the Revolution and as

Consider Financial Gifts for All Your Valentines
11:34AM / Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Valentine's Day is here – and it's a pretty big business. In fact, U.S. consumers spent about $18 billion on their valentines in 2017, according to the National Retail Federation. Of course, recipients certainly appreciate flowers, candy, jewelry and so on, but this year, consider going beyond the traditional favorites to give your loved ones something more long-lasting – a financial gift.

And, while you're doing so, why not also go beyond the traditional definition of a "valentine"? After all, not all that $18 billion went to spouses or significant others. A sizable amount also went to non-romantic connections, including children, parents, friends,

Councilor Jason LaForest, who was on the working group, explains some of the changes the group made to the model ordinance.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday voted to refer the proposed marijuana retail ordinance to committee to allow councilors more time to review it.    "There's enough questoins here tonight to go to at least one committee meeting," Councilor Wayne Wilkinson said. "We can't just boulder this thing through."   Wilkinson initially said he was simply making a statement but when it appeared there was interest in the idea, motioned to amend the referral to the Planning Board to also include the Public

BART Basketball Advances to League Title Game
11:20PM / Tuesday, February 13, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- It was not that long ago that the BART basketball team was the kind of program others might see as a doormat.   Now, the Wolf Pack is on the doorstep of winning a league championship.   Brandon Bamba scored 27 points Tuesday as Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School defeated Eagle Hill, 59-52, in the semi-finals of the River Valley Athletic League’s B Division Tournament.   On Thursday afternoon at the North Adams Armory, BART will host the league title game -- a far cry from the program’s early days.   “Two years ago, we were getting beaten by 60 and 70 points per game,” BART coach Rob Daugherty said after
