On Sunday, he joined more than 100 competitors at the 34th annual Pedal & Plod, putting himself to the test against a 4.4-mile running course followed by a 22-mile bike race, all in the hills

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
01:52AM / Monday, July 31, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Some towns in the Northern Berkshire Regional School District are going to see a little bit of relief in their assessments, and others will get turnbacks of transportation funds.   Superintendent James Brosnan told the McCann School Committee on Thursday that now that the state budget has passed, he has firmer numbers that will be relayed to the towns.   "Chapter 70 increased so I reduced the amount of money that we have in tuition so those two balance out because we cannot change the budget bottom line, it is how we get to it," he said.
