Two Years In, A Look At Pittsfield's Parking Meter Finances
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:28AM / Monday, July 01, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — As the debate over the installation of meters in the newly constructed Summer Street surface lot has begun in earnest, many are calling for a full-scale review of the parking program.   The City Council has called for an analysis, Downtown Pittsfield Inc. has called for one, Berkshire Nautilus, whose owner opposes the parking meters, has called for one. And many in the public have called for an accounting as well.   Three questions particularly look to be answered: Are the meters effectively doing what they were intended to do? Are the meters making financial sense? Are the meters harming downtown businesses and driving customers away? iBerkshires

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
07:17PM / Sunday, June 30, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The Berkshire Force 12-and-under softball team allowed just three runs in four games in this weekend’s Babe Ruth New England Regional.   So the team knows a thing or two about defense … as in defending its regional crown.   The Force did just that, closing out Burlington, Mass., 11-1, in five innings in Sunday afternoon’s title game.   Mia Arpante struck out five and allowed just one hit to go the distance in the circle, and Bella MacDonald and Paxton Ebling each had a pair of hits in a nine-hit attack as Berkshire finished the tournament 4-0 and picked up its second win of the weekend against Burlington.   In both those games, the

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The Berkshire Force 12-and-under softball team opened play in the Babe Ruth New England Regional with two very different games that one very important thing in common: Each was a Force victory to give the home team the top seed going into Sunday morning’s semi-finals.   Michaela Hinckley and Amdanda Pou combined on a one-hitter in Berkshire’s 2-0 win over Burlington, Mass., in Saturday’s opener.   In the afternoon, Mia Arpante did not allow any hits in an 11-1, four-inning win over Auburn, Maine.    The victories mean that the Force will host the tourney’s fourth seed at 9 a.m. Sunday in an elimination game to get to the 2

@theMarket: G-20 Weighs on Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
05:06PM / Friday, June 28, 2019
It wouldn't be a normal weekend in the financial markets without something to worry about. This weekend, it is the meeting of the two presidents, Trump and Xi, in Japan with $350 billion in new tariffs hanging on the outcome. What are the odds that they clinch a deal?   Not great, in my opinion. That doesn't necessarily mean that we need to brace for a worldwide economy-killing deluge of massive tariffs and counter-tariffs either. There is too much at stake for Donald Trump and China knows it. Instead, I expect we will get a classic Trumpian foreign policy "speak loudly and carry a little stick" maneuver.   Robert Lighthizer, our U.S. trade representative,
