Museum of Dog Planning Move to Larger Quarters in Pittsfield
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
12:16PM / Wednesday, September 05, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Museum of Dog needs a bigger doghouse.   Owner David York had plans to rehabilitate the former Quinn's Paint & Wallpaper building at the corner of Canal and Union streets but now says the historic building isn't large enough for his collection of dog artifacts and art — and to do the programming he's planning.    "We are averaging over 800 visitors per week and we are out of room," York wrote in an email about putting the building on the market. "People are driving 2 to 3 hours for experiences at Museum of Dog with their dogs."   York opened his collection in the 8,000-square-foot building earlier

National Grandparents Day is observed on Sept. 9. If you're a grandparent, you may get some gifts or cards – or maybe even a phone call! But you might feel that it's better to give than to receive, especially when it comes to your grandchildren. And you can make a real difference in their lives by making a financial gift for their future. 

For starters, think about your grandchildren's education. If college or some type of vocational school is in their future, you may want to help them meet some of the costs, which can be considerable. One common education-savings vehicle is a 529 savings plan. With this plan, earnings on withdrawals are tax free, provided they are

Richardson, MCLA Women Earn Shutout on Road
01:11AM / Wednesday, September 05, 2018
HARTFORD, Conn. --  MCLA's Hannah Van de Water converted in the 20th minute and Hoosac Valley alumna Megan Richardson stopped nine shots to earn the shutout as the duo led the women's soccer program to a gritty 1-0 road win over St. Joseph (CT) on Tuesday.   MCLA is now 1-1 on the season while the Blue Jays fall to 2-1.   The Trailblazers (1-1) were outshot 18-3 and USJ (2-1) held a 7-0 edge in corners, but Van de Water made her one opportunity count. She took a nice feed from Caitlyn Maloney and deposited it in the net for her first goal of the season and a 1-0 lead. MCLA was outshot 8-1 in the opening half, but Richardson stopped them all.   The hosts kept up


Gonzalez Wins Primary to Take on Charlie Baker
12:44AM / Wednesday, September 05, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The local district attorney's race was the hottest ticket in Tuesday's primary but there were plenty of other races on the ballots for both parties.    On the Democratic side, Jay Gonzalez outpolled Bob Massie by nearly double to move onto the general election. A former administrator under Gov. Deval Patrick, he'll face popular Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, who's pursuing a third term.    For lieutenant governor, Quentin Palfrey bested Jimmy Tingle to win the nomination with nearly 60 percent of the vote. Palfrey's been in the Berkshires fairly frequently over the past months.    William Galvin easily swept

Birge, with his wife, Lisa, pulls raffle tickets for a good cause.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts is welcoming just over 400 incoming students this year — but it wants more.    At the annual campus breakfast marking the start of the semester, college President James Birge detailed some of the priorities designed to "position MCLA to strengthen and enhance the college," including enrollment.   "This fall, we will welcome 415 new students to MCLA," Birge told the crowded cafeteria on Tuesday morning..

Ranked Choice Voting Seen as Way to End Vote Splitting In Elections
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
12:21AM / Tuesday, September 04, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Voters are heading to the polls this Tuesday to cast ballots for one of the three candidates in the Berkshire district attorney's race.   But they have to figure out the game -- this election, just like last year's for state representative in North County, won't simply identify a party candidate but who will win the office.   So if their favorite candidate loses, did that pull a vote from their second choice? Vote splitting has been an ongoing conversation in every election when there are more than two candidates. Two candidates can pull from the same like-minded voting pool and a third candidate cruises to victory -- sometimes with less than

Staff Reports,
07:41AM / Sunday, September 02, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — As the primary election day approaches, a number of elected officials have been choosing their sides in the district attorney race.   Whether those final affirmations by well-known names will swing any late-deciders toward — or away — from a candidate is yet to be seen. Still, the candidates vying for the Democratic nomination for Berkshire district attorney, and essentially the election, have been showcasing the support they racked up.    Paul Caccaviello, the incumbents, boasts of two former mayors, city councilors in both Pittsfield and North Adams, and Sheriff Thomas Bowler as lead endorsements in his camp. Andrea Harrington reeled in
