PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Highland Park will now be renamed after the late Christopher R. Porter.   The Parks Commission approved the renaming after a hearing on Tuesday. Porter owned and operated C.R. Porter Builders, working on many of the city's parks, and was known in the community for his philanthropy and voluntarily maintaining the park. He died last December at age 54.   A group of citizens banded together to push for not only the renaming of the park but to also improve it.    "We've already raised $4,000 in a heartbeat. It was simple. It is going to be one of the nicest parks you could ever imagine," former Mayor Gerry Doyle said of the

Weyessa “Ace” McAlister is making a big impact on the Trinity College men’s cross country team this fall.   The 2015 Monument Mountain graduate, who did a post-graduate year at Northfield Mount Hermon, placed 11th for the Bantams on Saturday at the Connecticut College Invitational in Waterford, Conn.   His 8-kilometer time of 25 minutes, 11 seconds was about a minute off the pace set by the meet’s winner. But McAlister finished 28 places ahead of the next member of his Trinity team, which finished in the middle of the field, ninth out of 20 schools.   Earlier this season, the Great Barrington resident was named one of the school’s Bantams of the

DALTON, Mass. — Michaela DeFoe put a whole new spin on the term "beach volleyball."   Earlier this fall, the Wahconah volleyball captain recruited her teammates to help her tackle a big problem in her hometown of Becket.   "Basically, the beach was redone a few years ago," she recalled on Friday. "They put gravel above the old beach and then a tarp and then the sand. After one one winter, it started to erode, and all the stones started to come up through the fabric."   DeFoe, a lifeguard at Becket Beach and a Senior Girl Scout looking for a service project for worthy of the organization's Gold Award, decided to take on the problem of

It was an amazing weekend last week for Soccer Domain Academy, which earned maximum points with teams playing at Berkshire Community College and those travelling around the state.   After a tough start to the season, the girls looked better organized and more disciplined, limiting the visitor’s attacks. SDA took their chances well and went into the break ahead 1-0.   SDA continued this performance into the start of the second half, remaining defensively organized as well as the midfield looking to win the ball back quickly and high up the field. Through this hard work SDA claimed its second goal, winning the ball on the halfway line before creating another
