District Attorney Write-In Campaign Could Delay Results
By Tammy Daniels & Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:59AM / Monday, November 05, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — There are only a few local races on the ballot Tuesday and their outcomes won't take too long to tally up. Except one.    It's possible that full results for the Berkshire County district attorney might not be known until Wednesday — or even Thursday.    The election for Berkshire district attorney has had plenty of twists and turns but the biggest has been the decision by second-place Democratic primary finisher Paul Caccaviello to mount a write-in campaign against the party's nominee Andrea Harrington.    Harrington's name is the only one on the ballot but there's always a spot on the ballot for a write-in

Awards were given to those individuals who made great progress in the last year. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Those with autism, brain injuries or who are developmentally challenged should be treated just like everybody else and Berkshire County Arc tries to do just that.   Through numerous programs throughout the county, BC Arc doesn't just provide support and advocacy for those people, they work hard to integrate them back into the world.    "What would we be without BC Arc? What would we be if you weren't here? We'd be a community that doesn't take care of all of us, it doesn't give every single one of us an opportunity to live the life we want

Guest Column: We Are Too Great to Hate
By James F. Birge, Guest Column
01:56PM / Saturday, November 03, 2018
As the president of a public institution of higher education, I have the unique opportunity to hear from many voices of those who represent the next generation. It should come as no surprise that there are myriad concerns coming through in those voices about the state of our country.   Between the Trump administration's seeking to restrict Title IX's definition of gender to "a person's status as male or female based on immutable biological traits identifiable by or before birth," bombs being sent to officials affiliated with the Democratic Party, and shooting violence fueled by the increasing volume of hateful, racist, anti-Semitic, and ideological propaganda

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
06:24AM / Saturday, November 03, 2018

Caccaviello supporters stand on every corner of the busy intersection. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Amanda Hamilton didn't personally know William Catalano but she knew the family.   She said she knows Catalano's father very well and refers to the Catalanos as family friends. Her father, Tim Hamilton, said the two families grew up together. Catalano was recently killed and they want justice.   They believe if Paul Caccaviello wins the district attorney race, justice will come. Caccaviello is currently seeking election as a write-in for district attorney and on Friday the Hamiltons introduced themselves and asked if they could hold a sign during a standout the campaign

Letter: Moran Much More Experienced for Register of Deeds
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Friday, November 02, 2018

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter to support Debbie Moran in her candidacy for the Northern Berkshire Register of Deeds.

In looking at both candidates, one might say that they both have significant experience in the office, with both having over 20 years, and Debbie having the most with 26-plus years in the office, but to examine deeper and look at what positions have been held during that time that really tell the whole story.

While her opponent is a simply a clerk within the office, Debbie holds the position of first assistant register of deeds. This in and of itself is a significant variation between the two and one that should be looked at very closely. While a clerk does have

Letter: Caccaviello Offers Leadership, Continuity
Letter to the Editor,
01:12PM / Friday, November 02, 2018

To the Editor:

As a respite care foster parent for nine years for children who have been traumatized by violence and/or sexual assault; as a crime victim myself; as an elected School Committee member (winning as a write-in) and a former Fair Housing commissioner; I know the work that Paul Caccaviello and the staff of the Berkshire district attorney's office have done and are doing. I know this because I have had first-hand experience with their programs, and I believe they are not to be taken lightly or denigrated.

As Berkshire district attorney, Paul Caccaviello has already made exceptional decisions to sustain and enhance these programs; and, at the same time, create new programs

Letter: Harrington Right Person for DA
Letter to the Editor,
01:00PM / Friday, November 02, 2018

To the Editor:

It was supposed to be easy.

The position of district attorney in Berkshire County was his to be had. It was set up so well. A shady backroom deal between the 14-year veteran DA and the Republican governor ... an early retirement of the 14-year veteran to allow him to run as the incumbent ... and a last minute switch to the Democratic Party to ensure the vote in the heavy Democrat/Democrat-leaning county. All the "right" political moves were made. He thought he was a shoo-in ... but then, something happened:

Andrea Harrington announced her campaign to run for Berkshire County district attorney. She embraced the extremely popular Criminal Justice Reform
