Fourth of July: The Declaration of Independence
09:06AM / Thursday, July 04, 2024

A reminder what today is really all about: The adoption of a (literally) revolutionary document that stated the grievances of the colonists against England and their resolve to pursue a course of self-determination — without the bindings of hereditary rule.


The Unanimous Declaration
of the Thirteen United States of America
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent

06:11PM / Wednesday, July 03, 2024

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Historical Commission welcomed the new city planner and approved the demolition of a Fenn Street home formerly owned by a well-loved volunteer.

Haddad dealerships purchased the property from Robert Presutti's family after he died in 2023 and plans to demolish it for further parking and vehicle storage.  

"The idea is to renovate the Haddad Hyundai dealership building at 689 East St. and as part of that renovation, they're proposing the demolition of a two-story house that is sort of situated on a small lot that they own between two others used for the dealerships," civil engineer Bryan Siter explained.

Dalton Fire District Navigates Future Fire Station
By Sabrina Damms, iBerkshires Staff
05:38AM / Wednesday, July 03, 2024
DALTON, Mass. — The Fire District is considering re-engaging the prospect of purchasing the former Dalton Garage, located at 385 Main St.   The district considered purchasing the building in 2022 because the fire station, located at 20 Flansburg Ave., is too small for its needs, especially with the addition of the ambulance service. However, the prospect was not fully explored and was pushed aside.    The idea was brought up again during the Fire District community meeting last week, and Thomas Irwin, a member of the town's Finance Committee, presented it to the Board of Water Commissioners during its Tuesday meeting.    The board voted to start exploring

By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
05:43AM / Tuesday, July 02, 2024

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — For William "Bill" Sturgeon, being the grand marshal of the historic Fourth of July parade "means everything." Meanwhile, it's a bittersweet time for Mayor Peter Marchetti, who's stepping down as parade leader after more than two decades.

During Pittsfield Community Television's "Parade in Preview" program, it was revealed that Sturgeon didn't believe Marchetti when he first got the call. He initially said, "yeah right" in disbelief.

"It means everything," he said. "I remember the only time I missed the parade, I didn't live here. I never missed it. If it snowed I'd be there.

CBRSD Working on Regional Agreement Education
By Sabrina Damms, iBerkshires Staff
05:14AM / Tuesday, July 02, 2024
DALTON, Mass. — The Central Berkshire Regional School Committee agreed to start an education campaign after the proposed regional agreement failed in three of the district's seven towns.    The item failed during the Hinsdale annual town meeting on May 15, the Peru town meeting on June 1, and Cummington's special town meeting on June 7. The regional agreement needed six out of the seven towns to vote in favor of passing.    Until an updated agreement is approved, the school district will continue to operate under its current agreement and follow state law.    The original agreement, created in 1958, has been amended several times and approved
