Graves Looks to Make Pittsfield's Corner Office Business Friendly
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:50AM / Monday, July 22, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — By 2010, the old YMCA boathouse was just about to topple into Pontoosuc Lake because it had fallen into such disrepair.    Scott Graves had an idea to save it. He'd take the property that wasn't on the tax rolls, renovated it and turn it into a private marina and club. Instead of the city ultimately having to demolish the building, it is back up and running and generating tax revenue.   But it wasn't easy as he kept hitting roadblock after roadblock from the city. After some 30 years restoring buildings, Graves doesn't want to have to deal with all of the red tape that the city puts in front of someone with an

02:48AM / Monday, July 22, 2019

The camp has been doing community service projects with Habitat since 2011. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — More than two dozen teenagers from Camp Lenox spent Friday cleaning up the west side of Pittsfield.   In partnership with Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, the campers cleaned up Durant Park, Columbus Avenue, and opened up the staircase at the end of Francis Avenue that had become overgrown to help people in the neighborhood more easily get to Big Y and CVS.   "We've got 27 campers and five staff from Camp Lenox in Otis and one of their activities every summer is doing a community service project. Since 2011, that was their first year coming to Habitat to do a

Pou's No-Hitter Lifts Force 12U to Dalton CRA Title
By Rick Duteau, iBerkshires.com Sports
10:34PM / Sunday, July 21, 2019
DALTON, Mass - Sunday’s performance was exactly the sort of thing that Berkshire Force 12U coach Jess Glebus hoped for, at exactly the right time. Just days ahead of a big trip to Florida to compete in the Babe Ruth World Series, the Force earned the Dalton CRA Softball Tournament title with a 10-0 win over the Saratoga Thunder, at Pine Grove Park.   Amanda Pou threw a no-hitter and every batter in the lineup reached base to contribute in the victory. Only one Thunder player reached base, and she was quickly thrown out by catcher Issabelle Macdonald and she attempted to steal second.   “We played Chatham yesterday and we didn’t play well, but we came out today

Berkshire Force 16s Beat Greylock Thunder for CRA Tourney Title
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
09:09PM / Sunday, July 21, 2019
DALTON, Mass. -- Sunday was graduation day at Pine Grove Park.   Not the cap-and-gown and valedictory address variety. But it was a day for goodbyes for some members of the Berkshire Force travel softball program, which played its last 16-and-under tournament of the season.   And went out in style.   Mia Alfonso went 3-for-3 with a home run, a triple and four RBIs, and Kiki Carrigan struck out six while allowing just three hits and pitching the Force to a 10-1 win over the Greylock Thunder in the championship game of the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Alfonso, a rising sophomore at Pittsfield High, is one of the younger players on the team with a couple of

WESTFIELD, Mass. -- The Pittsfield Babe Ruth Baseball 15-year-old All-Stars Sunday saw their season come to an end with a 15-2 loss to Keene, N.H., in the New England Regional at Bullens Field.   The New Hampshire state champions pounded out 12 hits and put the game away with an eight-run sixth inning, handing Pittsfield its third loss in three games of pool play.   "Although the results not what we wanted or expected, we played three very solid teams and very good baseball," Pittsfield manager Bryon Sherman said. "We had a tough draw, but we gave away some outs and at bats.   "That said, we played until the last out each game."   Keene scored

Community submission,
08:20PM / Sunday, July 21, 2019
DALTON, Mass. -- The Berkshire Force 10-and-under team Sunday scored 14 runs in the bottom of the first en route to a forfeit win in the title game of the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Mia DeJesus earned a perfect game of sorts, striking out the side in the top of the first.   After the Force rolled to its big inning in the bottom of the frame, its opponents from Latham, N.Y., threw in the towel and went home.   A.J. Pelkey and Madison Barber each had a pair of hits in the tournament-winning rally.   Earlier in the day, Pelkey hit a two-run homer in the Force' 8-0 win over Chatham, N.Y., to get to the title game.   Sunday's tournament win was

Holden Tops Pittsfield Americans in State Sectional Final
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
07:45PM / Sunday, July 21, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- It is a sign of how good this Pittsfield Little League American Division All-Stars team is that it took a three-run sixth inning to extinguish all hope in an eventual 8-0 season-ending loss on Sunday afternoon.   But Holden got that three-spot, in part because of a two-run single by Sam Perry, to wrap up a convincing win in the championship game of the Section 1 10- to 12-year-old Massachusetts tournament.   Until he singled to right to cap that three-run rally, a dangerous Americans team was still very much alive -- even with just three outs remaining.   “Because this team -- they always fight, they don’t give up,” Pittsfield coach Matt

Softball Stars Beat the Heat at Dalton CRA Tourney
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
05:59PM / Saturday, July 20, 2019
DALTON, Mass. -- Overheard on Saturday morning in the Berkshire Thunder dubout at Pine Grove Park: "Oh my God, it's hot."   And it was.   Maybe not quite as hot as the weatherman had predicted, but it was sticky. And everyone had their own approach to beating the heat at the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Some brought pop-up tents. Most enjoyed time at the cooling stations set up by the CRA staff. One program -- from the Pioneer Valley -- decided to skip the event altogether. The Thunder stormed to a three-inning win to get off the field as fast as possible.   The Berkshire Force and ACS Swat 16-and-under teams? They decided to play a game

Pittsfield 14s Rally Past N.H. Champs at Babe Ruth Regional Tourney
05:56PM / Saturday, July 20, 2019
ROCHESTER, N.H. -- Will Kinne scored on a two-out error in the bottom of the sixth to break a 6-6 tie and send the Pittsfield Babe Ruth 14-year-old All-Stars on to a 7-6 win over Nashua, N.H., on Saturday at the New England Regional Championships.   The winning rally started when Jake Hall drew a leadoff walk. He was eventually erased trying to score from third on a ground ball, but Kinne already had reached on the second Nashua error of the inning.   Kinne went to third on Nick Guachione's two-out single and scored when Collin Merwin reached on an error.   Tyler Gaudette retired the side in the order in the top of the seventh to earn the win after going to the hill in

Kavey Looks to Provide New Perspective in Pittsfield's Ward 5 Bid
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:32PM / Saturday, July 20, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — When Patrick Kavey returned to his hometown he had trouble finding work.   "I started applying to professional jobs. I had an interesting time finding either a job that would compensate me based on what you would see for an area of this size in the region or just finding specific jobs in general," Kavey said.    His background is in business management, with a degree from Westfield State University and a former store manager of Ben & Jerry's ice cream and then assistant manager of two restaurants, but every job he found would be filled internally. He turned his eyes to New York City and other large metropolitan areas.   But

"We're a confident team, and I just keep preaching to those guys: Just be confident. Don't get down on yourselves.   "Just because we're down a run or two, it
