To the Editor:

As school begins again in Berkshire County, I want to remind parents in our area that the tobacco industry continues to produce new and varied nicotine delivery products, like e-cigarettes and vape pens that are sweet, cheap and easy for young people to get. These products are not regulated by the FDA so there is no way of knowing how much nicotine or other chemicals they contain. They come in candy and fruity flavors and have become trendy among young people; in fact their use is on the rise among high school students. In Massachusetts, high school students who have ever used e-cigarettes doubled from 5 percent in 2011 to 10.7 percent in 2013.

Former City Councilor Pete White, Pittsfield's Shannon Grant Coordinator Adam Hinds, lieutenant governor candidate Steve Kerrigan and Sheriff Thomas Bowler at a meet and greet at Mad Jack's last Tuesday. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — In 2009, state and federal officials broke ground on the Soldier On's Gordon Mansfield Center on West Housatonic Street.   Neither U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy nor Steve Kerrigan were able to attend that day. But Kerrigan, then Kennedy's political aide, remembers working out the details of the federal earmark making that construction possible.   Last week, years after the center opened, Soldier On Executive Vice President Steven Como was

An emergency call box on the Williams College campus. iBerkshires spoke with the college's sexual assault prevention director and the district attorney about the roles of the educational and legal system in campus assaults.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Last spring's national discussion about sexual assault on college campuses hit very close to home for Williams College when a former student made headlines with allegations she had been steered away from the criminal justice system and toward a college disciplinary process she found unsatisfactory.

The Boston resident went public after her alleged attacker was allowed back at Williams after a three-semester suspension, something she

The Falcons added to the lead just six minutes later when Liziana Silva knocked home a Taylor Jagoe feed for a 2-0 edge.    MCLA (0-1-1) couldn't muster much on offense in the first half but did have a great chance when Justine Cozza slipped a shot past Falcon keeper Maria Case,

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- The MCLA Trailblazers and Regis College Pride raised the curtain on the 2014 women's soccer season with a hard fought 1-1 draw Saturday afternoon at Shewcraft Field.

Regis tallied early in the first half, but MCLA rallied to score in the 81st minute.    Just five minutes into the contest, Regis found the back of the net when Joana Rosa corralled a loose ball at the top of the box. She turned and lofted a shot that beat Trailblazer keeper Katy Daly for an early 1-0 advantage. Neither team mounted much of an offensive for the remainder of the half.   The Trailblazers began to wear down Regis in the second half, creating multiple scoring opportunities

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 1. Memorial Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities. By some estimates, at least half the work force

The Selectmen are weighing proposals for Gates Avenue.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. – A Gates Avenue resident has raised concerns with Board of Selectmen over a preliminary proposal to reroute access over private property, a plan that seems to indicate approval of an expanded gravel operation.

Because of the compromised culvert at the beginning of dead-end Gates Avenue, the town is looking for alternative ways to access the area. The Department of Environment Protection is mandating an open-bottom culvert for some $200,000 that would require installation of a temporary bridge for $450,000.

Without a clear solution, Town Administrator Carl McKinney said on Wednesday, he would be open for any
