PITTSFIELD, Mass. — On Friday afternoon, Berkshire Community College ushered in a new era in Berkshire County sports and recognized a longtime civic leader in the process.

The best part for honoree Gene Dellea? It just may be the fact that his part came at the end of a 45-minute dedication.   "For all of you who know this person, you will say to yourself, 'Of course, this should be dedicated to this person,' " Dellea's friend Emil George said moments before revealing the name of the long-awaited artificial turf field at BCC. "Because this field is important not just to Pittsfield but to Berkshire County, it should be dedicated to someone who has given

The directory has records of thousands of PHS graduates and what they're doing now. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — There are areas in Pittsfield High School that could use some refreshing.   The building on East Street has rooms that need repainting or new carpet, and the theater seats could be replaced, and textbooks updated. There are new programs that could be developed and implemented.   And there is also a lot of pride among those who spent years in that building -- the thousands of Generals who list PHS as their alma mater.   Since the city's dollars are tight, a group of alumni decided that it will make those improvements. On Friday, these PHS graduates joined

At one point there were some 75 union carpenters working on the new school. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Most of those who worked on the new Taconic High School live in the area. They coach youth sports or they're volunteer firemen in their communities.   As the final pieces come together - with the school passing its final inspection on Friday - those workers turned their attention to the baseball field — even if they weren't getting paid for it.   The school project didn't include any work on the baseball field. But a volunteer effort from those who worked on the new school got the work done anyway.   On Saturday, two dozen union carpenters were on site
