NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Airport Commission will help the Conservation Commission investigate flooding on Galvin Road that may be related to past airport construction.   Conservation Commission Chairman Jason Moran requested some assistance from the commission at its Tuesday meeting in investigating the source of some flooding in the area, specifically on Galvin Road.   "We all know that July was the wettest on record in the state so there has been a lot of water coming out of the sky," Moran said.

Engaging With The Dead: Berkshirites & Spectral World Part 2: Gilded Age to Modern Para-Tourism
By Joe Durwin, Special to iBerkshires
01:37PM / Sunday, October 31, 2021

What's left of the Mallery residence in New Ashford, the site of a gruesome murder that led to tales of hauntings. It's interesting to me that some of the Gilded Age cottages that have come to be most associated with hauntings today — places like The Mount, Whistlers Inn, Ventfort Hall — weren't at all among the early reputed "haunted houses" of the Berkshires of that era.   Instead, you have places like Greenwood — aka the Captain Britton place in Pittsfield — or Fernbrook, in Lenox.   Greenwood was an interesting early example. Thomas Britton built it in the late 1840s, on a hill near where Route 20 meets Barker Road. It was

Letter: Look to Hope of Future, Not Ways of Past: Vote for Bond
Letter to the Editor,
11:59AM / Sunday, October 31, 2021

To the Editor:

In the 21 years I've lived in North Adams many things have changed. Progress has been slow at times, but it has been steady. Sometimes visible on our streets, other times behind the scenes. Real progress that lasts generations takes a lot of effort and time from many people willing to do their part.

When I first moved here in 2000, it became clear to me that the oppression left by Sprague's exit years before still weighed heavily on the community. Many people were hesitant to speak their minds and those choosing to open a business knew they had to deal with a City Hall that had a history of not being easy to work with. The local government was not structured to

Letter: Macksey for Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
11:40AM / Sunday, October 31, 2021

To the Editor:

I moved to North Adams more than a year ago, I lived in Tennessee for a short while after leaving Pittsfield due to an attack on my son.

Within this time of our return, a lot of things in North Adams changed.

One thing seems to be the heart of our fine community. There's some art making its way back to our area and that is wonderful. One change I see fits voting for Jennifer Macksey for mayor. When my family first met her at the Downtown Celebration she was so inviting warm and caring.

My son, who has PTSD issue a from the above mentioned in Pittsfield, went right over and gave her a big hug. He took right to her. Jennifer cares for her community, her voters, for
