Berkshires Beat: CPA Funds Helping Make Improvements in Pittsfield
03:46PM / Monday, August 13, 2018
Making progress

Community Preservation Act funding approved earlier this summer already has begun to support multiple projects throughout the city of Pittsfield. The first year of CPA funding, totaling $433, 819.11, will support 11 projects in the categories of historic resources and open space/recreation.

City Planner CJ Hoss, who has been instrumental in this process, said community feedback has played an important role from start-to-finish.

End of Session Review 2018: Paul Mark
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Monday, August 13, 2018
  DALTON, Mass. — The state Legislature relaxed a bit in the early hours of Aug. 1 as the formal legislative session was ready to close.   But, wait, wait. State Rep. Paul Mark had one more bill -- a land taking for the town of Northfield intended to help local farmers.   "I was able to hold the House and the Senate open until after 1 in the morning on the last day of the session because it was an important bill. It had to be done before we adjourned," Mark said, joking about the change in his popularity among legislators as that night waned.   The Peru Democrat is wrapping up his fourth term in the House of Representative. He said lawmakers tackled a

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
01:16PM / Sunday, August 12, 2018
BRISTOL, Conn. -- A hop and a homer conspired Sunday to end one magical run for the Pittsfield American Little League All-Stars.   Coventry, R.I., edged the Massachusetts Champions, 3-2, at Breen Field to earn New England’s berth in this week’s Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.   Coventry’s Jake Mather capped a 3-for-3 performance with a solo home run to left to break a 2-2 tie in the top of the fifth inning, and Logan Lama limited a potent Pittsfield offense to three hits in 4-⅔ innings of work.   Pittsfield, which went 3-0 at the regional heading into Sunday’s rain-delayed final, rallied from a 2-0 deficit in the bottom of the

Little League Notebook: Rhody Rally Sets Rematch with Pittsfield AL
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
05:00AM / Saturday, August 11, 2018
BRISTOL, Conn. — Give Pittsfield American Little League manager Joe Skutnik credit for knowing the opposition.   After Wednesday's win over Rhode Island at the New England Regional, Skutnik was asked about Pittsfield's success against the top of Rhode Island's lineup.   Skutnik was quick to reframe the conversation.   "And the Fuentes kid, he's a good little stick," Skutnik said. "They hide [Sammy Fuentes] down there in the eight hole."   As Coventry, R.I., showed on Friday afternoon, you cannot sleep on the bottom of its lineup.   Little Rhody came up big in the bottom of the sixth, scoring six times to stun New Hampshire,

@theMarket: Will Stocks Break Out or Break Down?
By Bill Schmick,
05:23PM / Friday, August 10, 2018
The S&P 500 index is within a hair's breadth of breaking out. This week we topped 2,850, which we haven't done since March. The record high for the index in January was 2,872.   Can we top that?   The S&P 500 Index traded within 0.5 percent of its record high this week. If we can close and hold a new high, it will be the 18th time the benchmark index has closed at a new all-time high after going six months without one. Statistically speaking, the odds of doing so are against us. Normally, if we use historical data, it should take the index another year before we reach a new high, but there is nothing normal about the environment we live in today.   Last week,
