Northern Berkshire EMS New Year's Eve Rides Offered Safe Option
Staff Reports,
01:09AM / Thursday, January 03, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It can be difficult to get a ride in a community with little access to forms of public transportation. Especially on a holiday night that is known more for merriment than sober judgment.   That dilemma was solved for more than 50 partygoers on New Year's Eve by Northern Berkshire Emergency Medical Services.   The ambulance company's van transport service was put into operation for the evening to provide rides to and from events for those who didn't want to take a chance driving — and running into "big blue" (police) or needing a "big red" (fire truck), said Assistant Chief Amalio Jusino.   "They were so

Harrington is joined on stage during the ceremony by her husband, Timothy Walsh, and their two sons Francis and Ennis. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Andrea Harrington believes that "hope is not blind optimism" but rather a choice.   The new district attorney was inaugurated Wednesday morning and said she can envision a county free of sexual and gender-based violence, free of gun violence, free of addiction, and a place where people of all colors and genders can feel safe and protected.    But she cautioned, "nobody else is going to do it for us."   After being sworn in by retired Supreme Judicial Court Justice Francis X. Spina, Harrington told a


Year-end: Put This Year's Investment Performance in Perspective
12:32PM / Wednesday, January 02, 2019

How can you assess your investment portfolio's performance in 2018? The year was full of wild swings in the financial markets, so your own results may well have bounced around quite a bit, too. But you can still get a clear picture of how you did if you keep your investments' returns in the proper perspective – by making sure your expectations are relevant, realistic and reviewed.

Let's look at how these terms can apply to a meaningful evaluation of your investment progress:

Relevant: Many investors compare their portfolio returns to a popular market index, such as the S&P 500. But this comparison is not really valid for a variety of reasons. For one thing, indexes

Wintry Mix Bids 2018 Farewell; Wind Welcomes 2019
01:52PM / Monday, December 31, 2018

It looks like 2019 is coming in like a lion.

OK, not a huge, roaring lion. More like a baby lion, only not as cute. Unless you think ringing in the new year with a wintry mix of snow, sleet and ice is cute. To each their own.

The National Weather Services has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the region from 5 p.m. Monday, Dec. 31, to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 1. Mixed precipitation is expected, with a total snow and sleet accumulation of up to 2 inches and ice accumulation of up to one-tenth of an inch expected, particularly in North Berkshire and higher elevations.

Roads could be slippery as New Year's parties wind down tonight, so use caution when driving - and as always, make sure


North Adams: 2018 Year in Review
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:59AM / Monday, December 31, 2018

The new City Council for 2018-19 term. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The year 2018 saw a new government for North Adams and significant projects completed or waiting on the horizon. It also was a year of farewells and, in some cases, the passing of the baton to the next generation.   For only the third time in 34 years, the city swore in a new mayor in Thomas Bernard on Jan. 1. The city native and Drury High graduate promised a tenure into the "exciting and uncertain wilderness of possibility" as North Adams ventured into new era. The new mayor almost immediately began pushing through efforts such as a marijuana ordinance that had been lingering for some time and followed

The Gartons have maintained the historic art deco facade of the former market. They've owned the building for at least a dozen years. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — After moving and settling into its new location in the West End, Brewhaha has not only retained die-hard customers but picked up a few new ones.   "We haven't lost anyone I think potentially we have more customers," owner Barry Garton said. "It is a much better location because of the exposure. When we were downtown if people didn't know where we were, they might not be able to find us."   Garton, who owns the café with his wife, Nancy, just moved to the former West End Market


2018 in Review: Pittsfield Baseball, Softball Programs Dominate Spring, Summer
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Sports
07:46AM / Sunday, December 30, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield's baseball roots go back to the 18th century.   In 2018, the Shire City was a power in baseball and softball.   At the youth and high school levels, Pittsfield showed diamond dominance that easily was the story of the year in local sports.   For the second year in a row, the Taconic baseball team won a Western Mass Championship and returned to the state finals. This time around, in the D3 final, Taconic came up a little short but considering all the seniors who graduated from the state title team the year before, it made for a two-year run of which few schools can boast.   Meanwhile, the Pittsfield High softball team made its own
