LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — As more information is learned about brain injuries related to football, Selectman Robert Ericson is questioning whether the town should change the sport for the town's youth.   "The CTE, degenerative brain disease, is happening more and more. It is a direct result of a game where kids, especially young children, get banged around a lot. Is there a way we can make football a little safer for our children?" Ericson questioned. "Is it time that we, as adults, start to look at the safety and long-term aspect?"   Ericson isn't alone in asking the question. Throughout the nation, football programs have been dramatically changed to

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- You know a program has arrived when moral victories just don’t cut it.   In that sense, the BART basketball team has arrived.   Moments after losing its league championship game on a late 3-pointer after rallying from 11 points down midway through the third quarter, the Wolf Pack players were quiet, dejected and, perhaps at some level, thinking about how they can change the script next season.   Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School knocked down a triple with 6.2 seconds on the clock to take a 39-38 win over a young but resilient BART squad and claim the B Division of the River Valley Athletic League.   “It's amazing what

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- It was not that long ago that the BART basketball team was the kind of program others might see as a doormat.   Now, the Wolf Pack is on the doorstep of winning a league championship.   Brandon Bamba scored 27 points Tuesday as Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School defeated Eagle Hill, 59-52, in the semi-finals of the River Valley Athletic League’s B Division Tournament.   On Thursday afternoon at the North Adams Armory, BART will host the league title game -- a far cry from the program’s early days.   “Two years ago, we were getting beaten by 60 and 70 points per game,” BART coach Rob Daugherty said after

  Since Pete Fenson and the U.S. men's bronze medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, things have not gone well for USA curling at the Olympics. In 2010, both the men's team. and the women's team. finished last during the preliminary round. In 2014, the United States won only three of their eighteen combined ga.m.es with the men finishing ninth and the women tenth after the round-robin tournament   The United States should be moving up in 2018, but how much better and do any U.S. teams stand a chance to medal?   The 2018 Winter Olympics will begin with the new Olympic event of mixed doubles curling. Matt Hamilton and Rebecca Hamilton will represent the United States.

"But in the fourth, we missed six of seven from the line ... So we absolutely lost this one at the line.   "Hats off to the CYC boys.
