06:25PM / Monday, July 30, 2018
QUINCY, Mass. -- For the second game in a row, a late Post 68 rally fell short, and the team bowed out of the double-elmination American Legion state tournament with a 5-3 loss to Shrewsbury on Monday afternoon.   Shrewsbury led, 5-1, after five innings, but Post 68 rallied with two out for a pair of runs in the top of the seventh before succumbing.   Shrewsbury drew first blood with a run in the bottom of the first.   Post 68 tied it two innings later thanks to singles by Ian Benoit, Jack Cooney and Hunter Potash to load the bases and a fielder's choice off the bat of Joe Cracolici to score Benoit.   Shrewsbury regained the lead with three in the fourth inning and

Letter: Recent Article on BRTA Cuts
Letter to the Editor,
03:30PM / Monday, July 30, 2018

To the Editor:

This past BRTA meeting was my first as a returning board member and it is very hard to see BRTA contending with the same basic problems there were when I left the board three years ago: lack of funding to cover its service area to meet the demand for more routes, evening and weekend service.

So much money from Berkshire County goes to fund eastern Massachusetts transportation and so little comes to BRTA, even after our Berkshire delegation has secured increased funding.

What we need to focus on now is making sure Berkshire County and Western Mass. have strong representation on the RTA Performance and Funding Task Force and that our unique transportation needs and

Letter: Police Union Endorses Caccaviello for District Attorney
Letter to the Editor,
03:00PM / Monday, July 30, 2018

To the Editor:

The IBPO Local 447 (Pittsfield Police Officers Union) and IBPO Local 447S (Pittsfield Police Superior Officers Union) formally endorse Paul Caccaviello for the office of Berkshire County district attorney.

There are a number of reasons for our endorsement with the most obvious being that his experience with the criminal justice system in Berkshire County and particularly the district attorney's office are unmatched by any of the other candidates seeking election. Many members of both unions have worked closely with DA Caccaviello for the past 25-plus years. He has worked as a prosecutor in the district court, Jury of Six, Berkshire Superior Court, and ultimately as the

Review: 'Lempicka' Beautifully Painted at Williamstown Theatre Festival
By Nancy Salz, Guest Column
01:20PM / Monday, July 30, 2018

For the first few minutes of "Lempicka," the stunning world premiere musical at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, the music level was so assaulting, I wanted to wave a white flag of surrender as happened – perhaps apocryphally – during an early performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. But very soon thereafter, either the music level was lowered, or I got used to it – and it was I who surrendered to this wonderful, beautifully realized musical. If you wear socks to "Lempicka," be prepared to have them knocked off.

The show is the story of a strong woman named Tamara de Lempicka (Eden Espinosa). She was an Art Deco painter who had two

Scalise' Two-Out Double Completes Pittsfield AL Comeback in State Title Game
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
08:18PM / Sunday, July 29, 2018
MILLBURY, Mass. -- Pittsfield’s Anthony Scalise took his marching orders from the competition in Sunday’s Massachusetts 12-Year-Old Little League Championship Game.   With two out and men on first and second and Danvers clinging to a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the sixth, the Eastern Mass squad chose to issue a free pass to Evan Blake to load the bases.   It was hard to argue with the move, considering that Blake had five home runs in the four-game tournament, including one to score the Pittsfield American League’s first two runs on Sunday.   Hard to argue, but, if you were Scalise, a little hard to swallow.   “Yeah,” Scalise said when asked

07:00AM / Sunday, July 29, 2018

Mayor Linda Tyer was the keynote speaker. PITTSFIELD, Mass. - Sandwiched between World War 2 and the Vietnam War, the Korean War has earned the nickname the "forgotten war" because it is often overlooked.   But 36,516 United States soldiers died fending off communist North Korea from its invasion of capitalist South Korea.   In monsoon season in 1950, North Korea had stormed the 38th parallel and set off a three-year conflict. In July of 1953, 65 years ago, an armistice agreement was signed ending the conflict. There was no peace treaty.   On Saturday, local veterans held a 30-minute ceremony to honor all who served in the war including the 20 from Pittsfield
