NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Mayor Thomas Bernard has joined Pittsfield's Mayor Linda Tyer in signing onto to the principles of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns coalition following the deadly shootings that killed more than 30 people.   "In the wake of what happened in El Paso (Texas) and Dayton (Ohio) this weekend, she and I talked, and I had been familiar with it and hadn't signed on," Bernard said on Tuesday.

10:28PM / Friday, August 02, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- After a week in which it went 1-4 and watched its first place lead disappear, the North Adams SteepleCats could have folded up the tents going into Friday’s rain-rescheduled double-header at the Valley Blue Sox.   After seeing a 2-0 lead evaporate in a 5-2 loss in Game 1, the ‘Cats could have called it a day.   And after going behind, 2-0, two innings into the nightcap, North Adams could have given up.   But the SteepleCats battled back and tied the game, only to drop a heart-breaking 3-2 decision to the two-time defending NECBL champions and miss a shot at the postseason by one game.   “That’s all you can ask for,
