12:28AM / Tuesday, June 12, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. —It was a battle of the pitchers Monday night down at Joe Wolfe Field.

The North Adams SteepleCats dropped a closely contested battle 3-2 against the Vermont Mountaineers Monday Night after each of the team’s pitchers went deep into the contest.

Chris Cepeda took the mound for the SteepleCats, going 7.1 innings allowing just three runs off of eight hits. The St. Thomas Aquinas senior was able to pitch himself out of multiple jams Monday night, yet when we left the game in the 8th he placed relief pitcher Stanley Vargas in a tough spot. With the bases loaded, Vargas was able to get Vermont infielder Jarficur Parker to pop up into right field, but the

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The School Committee is set to do its second evaluation of the performance of Superintendent Barbara Malkas.    A special meeting is being held Monday night for a final vote on the school budget for fiscal 2019, followed by superintendent evaluation.   Malkas last week had quickly outlined some of the evidence that she had provided to the School Committee members to aid them in their evaluation process.   "I will tell you this is not the sum total of the evidence and I realized when I was trying to put this together ... I didn't need the kitchen and the bathroom sink," she said. "I realized I was putting a lot in there so if


SteepleCats Bats Come Alive In Win Over Newport
By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
12:41AM / Monday, June 11, 2018

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — After a quiet first three games, the bats of the North Adams SteepleCats have finally awoken.

In a game where eight from the SteepleCats lineup registered a hit, North Adams was able to power itself to a big win over the Newport Gulls Sunday night by the score of 14-9.

Brandon Alberto started on the mound for North Adams, but only lasted a single inning after the right-handed pitcher suffered a season-ending injury that took him out of the contest. Alberto’s inning also left the SteepleCats in a quick 3-0 hole, as the Cats have previously struggled this season getting themselves back into ball games after falling behind early. Yet this was not the case

By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
12:25AM / Saturday, June 09, 2018

This was the third straight game the SteepleCats utilized four pitchers throughout the contest. Stanley Vargas of New England College made his first start of the season on the hill for North Adams, tossing 3.2 innings and giving up seven of Newport’s fifteen


'Adrift': Cast Away in an Inconvenient Genre
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
05:28PM / Friday, June 08, 2018
If your idea of a good time is anguishing aghast on tenterhooks as a couple of shipwrecked young lovers try to survive against all odds in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, director Baltasar Kormákur's "Adrift," loosely based on a true story, is for you. I, for one, don't really get the thrill, and have yet to receive a satisfactory response from either horror film or disaster flick aficionados when I question their inclination.
