DeMarsico's Wine Cellar Pouring Fruitful Vintages
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:01AM / Monday, November 28, 2016

Glen and Cheryl DeMarsico have turned their wine-making hobby into a business.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — You can't go into DeMarsico's Wine Cellar, but you can find its assortment of fruit and grape wines at local retailers — and the occasional craft fair.

Owners Glen and Cheryl DeMarsico have been holding tastings about once a month at the Eagles Hall, which on Saturday coincided with the annual craft.

The couple were set up at a table offering several of their wines, including a Cheshire pumpkin-and-spice limited holiday run. But one of their more popular libations —  a blueberry mead made with honey from the town of Florida and berries from Maine —

'Bleed for This': Middleweight Contender
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:08PM / Saturday, November 26, 2016

To accent boxer Vinny Pazienza's close-knit family in director-writer Ben Younger's "Bleed for This," turning points in the pugilist's remarkable saga are inevitably marked by the clan crowded around the dinner table eating, with hardly room for a bread stick among them. There is a basic, anthropological purity in the devotion, an incontrovertible given, as each member, whether laughing, chiding or worrying out loud, plays out his or her supportive role in the dynamic. The conceptualization is as engaging as the accompanying tale of fisticuffs.

Based on a true story, the travail that was "The Pazmanian Devil's" career should please boxing fans who know

My statement to the North Adams City Council: Nov. 22, 2016

I stood before this City Council in 2003 to ask the council to stand with other communities, to pass a resolution requesting the federal government to revise the hastily written and adopted so-called Patriot Act, an act that eroded many of our civil liberties and paved the way for further erosion of them. The good members of that council sat by and did nothing.

I stood before this City Council in 2006 to ask the council to impeach Bush and Cheney for acts of treason; for purposefully and willfully lying to the American people to take us into an illegal and ongoing failed war of aggression. A war that

Brayton Students Make Chain For City Christmas Tree
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
04:00PM / Friday, November 25, 2016
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city's Christmas tree has a unique decoration this year: a 220-foot paper chain.   The large red and green chain twists around the tree a couple of times, from the bottom all the way to the top.   This distinctive creation was made by Brayton Elementary sixth- and seventh-graders who presented the chain to Mayor Richard Alcombright on Wednesday, just in time for the tree's lighting that evening.    It was made by linking strips of laminated construction paper with individual holiday messages on each one.   "It is one of those things that really warms your heart when you see the kids in the community come together to make

Cheshire Kindergarten: How To Cook A Turkey
03:24PM / Thursday, November 24, 2016
The kindergarteners at Cheshire Elementary School again share their ideas on how cook a turkey. Teachers Robin Poirot and Heather Emerson sent their amusing and informative essays to share with our readers, including tales of some fast-cooking turkeys. Happy Thanksgiving!
By Mrs. Poirot's Class
My great-gram will probably buy a 50-pound turkey at Big Y. You have to cut the head off and put it outside for bait for a bear, fisher cat, fox or coyote. Next you would stuff it with chicken and rice. The oven should be at 51 degrees for just a few minutes until you hear the ding.

My Thanksgiving will be at Gramís house. She will get the turkey at Walmart for about $21. It will be as

Oh Be Thankful Dessert Auction Helps Those In Need
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
06:37AM / Thursday, November 24, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Gabriel Abbott Memorial School's 13th annual Oh Be Thankful auction expanded this holiday season to allow any desserts rather than just its famed pies.

Bakers were put to the test on Tuesday night as their confections were rated by select judges and the community at large at the American Legion.

"It used to be just a pie contest for 12 years but now it is a dessert contest," Principal Heidi Dugal said of the Florida school's tradition. "We thought we would try something a little different."

Dugal said each contestant bakes two desserts: one for the judges to try and one to be auctioned off. She said attendees also get to try a small

By Tammy Daniels,
05:00PM / Wednesday, November 23, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — At least 20 people were forced from their apartments on Wednesday afternoon after a fire broke out in the attic above one of the units.

The report of a fire in one of the rear units in the six-apartment building on Crossey Place came in before 3 p.m. The call came into dispatch from a resident in the apartment who said her walls were warm and "turning black."

Letter: Thanks for Quitting Smoking
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, November 21, 2016

To the Editor:

This Thanksgiving season, I'd like to remind readers to thank a co-worker, friend or family member who has quit smoking. Many smokers say quitting is the hardest thing they have ever done. Most smokers have to try a few times before they quit for good, and any amount of recognition can help someone stay quit.

Smoking is the number one cause of preventable death and disease in Massachusetts. Nicotine is a very addictive drug and, on average, it takes a smoker several tries to quit for good. So reach out to smokers or ex-smokers. Let them know you are proud of how hard they're working to better their well-being. Thank them for improving their health and the health of
