By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
08:28PM / Saturday, July 28, 2018
MILLBURY, Mass. -- When Evan Blake steps into the batter’s box, his teammates’ chant -- the Little League equivalent of “walk-up music” -- is “Blake, the Beast.”   On Saturday, he proved them right.   Blake homered in his first three at-bats, the last a towering grand slam to left that helped lift the Pittsfield American Little League All-Stars to a 14-3 win over Medford at the state 12-year-old championships.   Pittsfield finishes pool play in the three-team state tourney with a record of 3-0. On Sunday at 2 p.m., the Americans take on Danvers for the state championship and a berth in the New England Regional in Bristol, Conn.   After

BRTA Cuts Service Despite Increased Support In State Budget
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:31AM / Friday, July 27, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Gov. Charlie Baker signed a budget that increased funding for regional transit authorities by 10 percent. But, that isn't stopping the BRTA from reducing services.    On Thursday the Berkshire Regional Transit Authority voted in favor of a budget which eliminates a handful of runs and gets rid of a discount for those who use the Charlie Card.   BRTA Administrator Robert Malnati said that while the state legislature has approved an increase, most of the additional funds are being held back for a few months. He based the budget on level funding, and eyes a portion of the state's increase to pilot a run later in the evening.   "The

At Target, the large gate was down over the department store’s mall entrance.

The manager on duty at Target just after 4 p.m. on Thursday said he did not know when the store received word that the mall would be closing for the day, and he did not

'Three Identical Strangers': Relatively Horrifying
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
04:18PM / Thursday, July 26, 2018
You don't have to be Jewish to lament "Oy, yoy, yoy" after seeing director Tim Wardle's shocking documentary, "Three Identical Strangers." After being presented a series of outlandish and disturbing disclosures about the title triplets separated at birth, adopted by three separate families and who are reunited at age 19, you'll warm up for that final assessment by first issuing several "Holy Cows," a few "Yipes" and perhaps a couple good old-fashioned "Wows."   Unaware of, or having forgotten about, the celebrity that Eddy Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran enjoyed when they discovered each other in the early 1980s, I
