By Mark Hurwit, Community Submission
08:24PM / Tuesday, December 12, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — More than 40 bundled-up Berkshire citizens gathered on the sidewalk in front of the Pittsfield Verizon store last Thursday evening, holding home-made placards and signs, to join tens of thousands of others for a day of peaceful protests at more than 600 Verizon store locations across the country.   The issue at hand — one they insist affects everyone — is an upcoming congressional vote on the Federal Communications Commission's plan to repeal the rules that currently restrict how large broadband companies can control their users' access.   Eileen Raab, who organized the Pittsfield rally, said she was "very pleased with the

10 Most Dangerous Pittsfield Intersections: 2017 Edition
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:02AM / Monday, December 11, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The state Department of Transportation prioritizes safety when determining which road projects it undertakes.   And that starts by knowing where the most dangerous intersections are located. MassDOT and Berkshire Regional Planning Commission track accidents and create a list of trouble spots.    The ratings use a weighted system. If there is a fatality at an intersection, it is given a score of 10. If the accident causes a non-fatal injury, the intersection receives five points. An accident that only causes property damage receives one point. Over a three-year period, those scores then start to show specific areas that tend to see more and more

Renovation of Former Pittsfield Church Into Apartments Progressing
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
08:01AM / Sunday, December 10, 2017

The building was first constructed in 1906 and transformed into a church in 1923. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — In 1906, the Berkshire Railway System constructed a building on Seymour Street to host a steam boiler and large electrical generators to power the trolley cars going up and down North Street.    Six years later, the facility was too small. The railroad built a new one on East Street and vacated the Seymour Street building.   The Polish community, however, had started petitioning the Catholic Diocese of Springfield for a Polish church. The diocese granted the wish and the former powerhouse was converted into Holy Family Church, opening in 1924.   Next year,

@theMarket: Should Be Good Month for Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
05:34PM / Saturday, December 09, 2017
The House passed a stop-gap spending bill averting a government shut-down late Thursday night. As a result, markets moved higher. We can expect more of the same until the next deadline, which is just before Christmas.    To be honest, investors have become so used to these eleventh hour deals out of Congress that the markets hardly budge when the drama begins. Dec. 22 is the new date investors will be watching. We will see whether a compromise can be reached on the budget for 2018 by then.   In the meantime, the markets will remain focused on the Republican tax deal. The hope is that a compromise between the House and Senate will be reached in time for President Trump to sign

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
07:50AM / Saturday, December 09, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Health Director Gina Armstrong doesn't see the enforcement of new trash regulations becoming a difficult task.   The Board of Health is currently in charge of enforcing nuisance issues regarding trash and will continue to do so if the city moves to an automated system. An ordinance to move to the toter system, with residents being given city-issued 45-gallon and 96-gallon trash and recycling bins, is currently before the City Council.    Armstrong brought up some areas of concern about the proposed toter system regulations, but overall said it will keep the city cleaner.   "It is going to save a lot of time and we can address more
