By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:00AM / Friday, October 18, 2019

Kerri Nicoll, associate professor of social work at MCLA, introduces the 'inclusive development' topic at the NBCC meeting on Tuesday.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — In its third forum on the topic of gentrification, the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition flipped the script.

Instead of focusing on what people fear when thinking about the challenges of new community investment, participants in the October forum were asked to instead think about what aspects of "inclusive development" they would like to see.

Letter: Bernard Has Earned Second Term
Letter to the Editor,
03:00PM / Thursday, October 17, 2019

Mayor Tom Bernard is a leader who demonstrates his competencies through hard work, intelligence, open-mindedness and commitment to guiding our city through this period of

Rain, Wind Heading for New England
, iBerkshires Staff
03:31PM / Wednesday, October 16, 2019

The barometric pressure has to fall at least 24 millibars, or 0.71 inches, in 24 hours for the bomb cyclone criteria to be met.   Since winds on the front side of the storm are likely to be from the east or southeast, instead of the northeast for much of the mid-Atlantic and New England, it is not likely to be considered
