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

Rhode Island Edges Pittsfield Little Leaguers in New England Title Game
By Stephen Dravis, 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, 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,

'Christopher Robin': What the World Needs Now
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
02:32PM / Friday, August 10, 2018
Watching director Marc Forster's delightfully sweet and optimistic "Christopher Robin," wherein the title character now all grown up and in a funk reunites with Winnie the Pooh, his inspiring, childhood pal, my mind wandered. Not because the film wasn't absorbingly influential, but because it was. There I was, back on Dewey Street in Newark, in front of David Stein's house, where I found a dime and screamed of my bonanza, only to be assailed by Mrs. Stein, who claimed it was the dime David had lost. But that's OK.   Arriving in front of the six-family house at 61 Dewey, crying about my fortune so quickly won and lost, there stood my Mom, as if a sixth sense


Review: 'West Side Story' at Barrington Stage: Wow!
By Nancy Salz, Guest Column
11:00AM / Friday, August 10, 2018

Robert La Fosse choreographed 'West Side Story' at Barrington Stage.

Surely you know the song "Maria" from "West Side Story: "Maria, the most beautiful sound I ever heard, Maria. I've just met a girl named Maria ..." It has been recorded by Johnny Mathis, Dave Brubeck, Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, to name just a few.

But you will never know the profound emotion in that song until you hear it sung by Tony, the character for whom it was written. And if the Tony happens to be young and a superb singer – as he is in the current, breathtaking Barrington Stage revival – only then can you appreciate the wonder and amazement of young, first

Coaching Continuity One of Keys to Pittsfield Little Leaguers' Success
By Stephen Dravis, Sports
02:22AM / Friday, August 10, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Peruse the rosters of the 12 teams competing at this week’s Little League Baseball Eastern Regional Tournament, and a common theme emerges.   The players and coaches frequently have the same last names.   In fact, 10 of those teams have at least one coach -- and sometimes all three -- who are related to at least one of the players.   Only two -- Washington, D.C., in the Mid-Atlantic bracket and the Pittsfield Americans in the New England bracket -- break that trend.   Manager Joe Skutnik and coaches Ty Perrault and Pat Bramer do not have a boy on the Pittsfield AL team that Saturday will play for the New England title and a berth in the Little
