By John Wood, North Adams SteepleCats
10:17PM / Wednesday, July 18, 2018

HARTFORD, VT. —For the third time this year, the SteepleCats have learned very well why there’s the saying “It ain’t over till it’s over”.

In their first of three matchups over the next five days, the SteepleCats traveled up to Maxfield Sports Complex on Wednesday to take on the Upper Valley Nighthawks. After North Adams was just out away from a big division win, the Nighthawks pulled off some 9th inning heroics to defeat the SteepleCats 5-4.

In his seventh appearance on the mound for North Adams, Chris Cepeda manned the hill for the SteepleCats at the start of the game. After escaping a bases-loaded jam in the 1st, the Nighthawks were able to strike

By Grace Lichtenstein, Special to iBerkshires
02:09PM / Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Our focus this week shifts to north county — Williamstown and North Adams. While that might require a bit of a drive for those coming from farther south, I believe it will be worth it as you discover a brand new musical and a masterwork that combines elements of folk, rock and classical.

What Should You Do With an Inherited IRA?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
01:42PM / Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are quite popular. At the end of 2017, investors owned nearly $9 trillion in IRA assets, according to the Investment Company Institute, a trade association of U.S. investment companies. Given these numbers, it probably wouldn't be surprising if you inherited an IRA someday. But what should you do with it?

First of all, you'll need to be aware of some basic rules. If your parent, or anyone other than your spouse, leaves you a traditional IRA – one in which contributions are typically tax-deductible and earnings can grow tax-deferred – you can transfer the money into an "inherited IRA," from which you’ll need to take

Anthony Pettingill and Shirley Vallieres, both of North Adams, check out a big piece of baseball history on Tuesday afternoon.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The players on this year's North Adams SteepleCats are too young to really remember the frustration that preceded the Boston Red Sox' 2004 World Series Championship.   But that did not stop them from being a little awestruck in the presence of history.   On Tuesday, the team stopped by the "One Country, One Game: A Celebration of Baseball" exhibit on Main Street to see the 2004 World Series trophy, which was on loan by the team for the day. Originally, the team had announced it would be sending the

Work on the Porches expansion project has already begun with the construction of a gathering space approved last year. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Conservation Commission gave the Porches its blessing to go forward with a plan to add parking.   Charlie LaBatt, of Guntlow & Associates, went over the River Street hotel's plan to expand parking and green space on the campus as well as to remediate the former Sunshine Pools property across the street.   "This is basically a riverfront redevelopment project trying to encompass all of what the Porches campus is trying to do in and around their property," LaBatt said.   LaBatt said parking will be
