Bayliss' No-Hitter Highlights BABL Week
11:15AM / Wednesday, July 24, 2019
Tight races abound in the Berkshire Adult Baseball league, where just one game in the loss column separates the top three teams in the over-35 division and the top two teams in the 20-year-old division.   A key game in the 35s comes on Sunday in Lenox, where the first-place Berkshire Thunder (9-2) takes on the third-place Berkshire Bandits (7-3).   The division's second-place team, the Adams Aces (7-2) has two games in the next five days, playing Tunnel City at Alcombright Field on Wednesday and the Greenridge Gremlins at the Dalton Legion field on Sunday.   Last week in the 35-year-old division, Jarrett Bayliss threw a no-hitter to lead the Dalton Moneymakers past the

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A normally routine reappointment turned into an extended and sometimes heated debate at Tuesday's City Council meeting.    Mayor Thomas Bernard had recommended City Councilor Paul Hopkins be reappointed to the Redevelopment Authority, of which he has been chairman for at least a decade and a member since 2001.   But Councilor Marie T. Harpin objected that the administration didn't seem to be working to diversify the makeup of its boards and commissions. Two members had been members since 2001 and a third since

McKenna Ferris, Madison Rathbun, and National Champion Sabrina Lakehal. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Gemini Gymnastics had a busy season and returned from national competitions in Disney World last month with a championship.   Things are quiet during the summer at gymnastics school and although owner and instructor Amy Garner is enjoying a brief respite, there is always work to be done in preparation for another season of training and competition.   "They are on break now so we are just getting ready to do it all over again," she said.

Holyoke Mayor Morse Challenges Neal In Congressional Race

03:58AM / Tuesday, July 23, 2019

Morse is joined by a large crowd of supporters at the Unicorn Inn on Monday night. HOLYOKE, Mass. — They said he couldn't do it.   There is no way a 21-year-old, turning 22, could defeat an incumbent mayor with years of political experience. And there was no way the city of Holyoke was ever going to be as good as it had been.   "When I ran for mayor eight years ago, people had a few things to say. They said No. 1, wait your turn. No. 2 maybe run for something else. Or No. 3, don't run at all, you are too young, too gay, too progressive, you are not going get elected here in the city of Holyoke," Alex Morse said at the Unicorn Inn on Monday night to a

The Board of Commissioners made a pro forma vote to ratify Jennifer Hohn's annual contract.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Housing Authority is still waiting on the Sun Cleaners contamination report that is reportedly now 85 percent complete.   Per usual, Housing Authority Executive Director Jennifer Hohn had little new news about the status of old dry cleaning location and told the Board of Commissioners on Monday that the ball is now completely in engineers Tighe & Bond's court.   "My hands are tied so it is all on Tighe & Bond," Hohn said.   The board, which also serves as Housing Opportunities Inc. board, plans to transfer all the HOI

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The owner of the former North Adams Country Club confirmed his plans last week to renovate the clubhouse and recreate a nine-hole course.   And set up a cluster of "tiny homes" to cater to second home owners and vacationers.    The course on River Road has been in limbo for the last eight years as plans to build an 18-hole golf course fell to the wayside, materials were take from the land and a solar array installed.    But owner Todd Driscoll, who came into the picture about four years ago, is still hoping to rejuvenate the course on a smaller scale, he told the Planning Board last week.   "We don't want to make it
