NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The SteepleCats are relaunching with a new look, a new attitude and new leadership.   "We're changing the brand, and we're changing the look, and we're changing the feel," says new President Allen Hall. "A lot of things are going to change this year to be more North Adams-centered and focused in terms of its approach, its affordability, and our marketing and corporate packages."    The New England Collegiate Baseball League team is switching out its friendly fuzzy black and yellow cat for a leaner, meaner blue panther. The Drury blue logo and uniforms, with black, white and gray, is meant to evoke a more assertive,

Clarksburg Reviews Raft of Bylaws for Pot, Zoning, Solar Arrays
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Tuesday, November 28, 2017

One of the articles for the upcoming special town meeting asks to align zones with property lines in three areas of town. Above, the blue line shows an I1 zone on Middle Road; the red is the property lines. CLARKSBURG, Mass. — A group of residents is calling for a more restrictive bylaw when it comes to large solar arrays.    A company is apparently scoping out the field bounded by Stoneybrook and Mountain View drives and Cross Road.    "The field in front of us, we've seen a lot of surveyors and it's getting us nervous," said Jeffrey Levanos, chairman of the Select Board and a resident of Mountain View Drive. "Are we going to have

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:37AM / Monday, November 27, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The environment will be spare but the organizers of the first-ever TEDx North Adams are sure that the ideas shared will be illuminating.    Eleven speakers will be featured at the Mohawk Theater in January for a full afternoon of talks and videos around the basic TED theme of "Ideas Worth Sharing."    Organizers announced on Sunday that the empty Mohawk on Main Street would be the venue for the event.   "We knew it would be bare bones and continue to be bare bones," said Benjamin Lamb, one of the organizers and president of the City Council. "We thought it was a good way to activate the space in a different

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
07:27AM / Sunday, November 26, 2017
ADAMS, Mass. — Newly elected state Rep. John Barrett III, D-North Adams, spoke at the Maple Grove Civic Club about the importance of bringing the Greylock Glen project to fruition.   Barrett spent just under an hour Sunday fielding questions from club members at the Polish National Alliance and although he touched on issues that faced Northern Berkshire County as a whole, he zeroed in on the notorious Greylock Glen project that he promised to work toward completing.   "This project has been held up now for quite some time for no reason, and I see millions go into other projects that I think will do far less than what the Greylock Glen can do for this community,"

@theMarket: Sweet Spot for the Markets
By Bill Schmick,
04:31PM / Friday, November 24, 2017
Thanksgiving weekend usually marks the beginning of a great seasonal run in the equity markets that continues through January of next year. There are some additional reasons why this year may prove to be a good one.   No one disputes the fact that we have had an unusual year for equities; all three U.S. indexes have gains in excess of 15 percent. That is more than twice the average gains of the S&P 500 Index on a historical basis. In addition, those spectacular gains have been accomplished without any declines of more than 3 percent all year. If that is not a record, it is pretty close to one.   The economy, unemployment and inflation have all been moving in the right

The Independent Investor: Why Stocks Continue to Climb
By Bill Schmick,
05:30PM / Thursday, November 23, 2017
As we approach the end of the year, most investors are both dumb-founded and pleased at the stock market's performance. President Trump and his followers would like us to believe it is all because of them. Hog wash.   There has been no substantive legislation since the new administration took office. Promises can only take us so far. Some say any further upside will be short-lived, because living on hope alone has already taken us too far. And yet, somehow the economy is still growing, even gathering momentum.   Recall, too, that Donald Trump and the Republican Party gained power on the promise of undoing many of the trade agreements the U.S. has forged over the past 40 years.

'Justice League': Oh Superman, Where Art Thou?
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
04:59PM / Thursday, November 23, 2017
Prior to becoming one special effects-crammed battle scene after the next, director Zack Snyder's "Justice League" spends an inordinate amount of time detailing the difficulties of putting together the folks necessary to saving the world. Mind you, I'm not talking about the 20 or 30 influential U.S. senators and congresspeople it would take to flip their brethren in the noble pursuit of preserving America's currently endangered democracy, though that'd be a real good idea. Only the autocrats have fun in an autocracy. But no, this is just about superheroes.   All the same, this movie rendition about that gang of DC Comics crusaders who attempt to solve their
