By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
12:21AM / Monday, July 26, 2021

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Pittsfield Fire Department and other Berkshire County firefighters will again test their endurance locally in the national Firefighter Combat Challenge.

Wearing full bunker gear and Scott Air-Pak breathing apparatuses, competitors will race as they re-enact the physical demands of real-life firefighting by performing a series of duties.

"We call it the toughest two minutes in sports, it takes an

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
07:55PM / Sunday, July 25, 2021
ANDOVER, Mass. -- How big was Matthew Keegan for the Pittsfield Little League American Division 10-year-old All-Stars in Sunday’s 9-8, come-from-behind victory in the State Championship game?   Asked to comment on a big at-bat by Keegan in the second inning, Pittsfield Manager B.J. Jefferson misheard and jumped straight to a big at-bat by Keegan in the seventh.   The former was Pittsfield’s first hit of the game and sparked a five-run rally to tie the game. The latter produced the baserunner who scampered home on a wild pitch to give the Americans the extra-inning victory over Swansea and the ultimate prize for 10-year-old Little Leaguers in the commonwealth.   In

State Auditor Bump Calls for Change in PILOT Program
By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
06:25AM / Sunday, July 25, 2021

State Sen. Adam Hinds and state Rep. Paul Mark of Peru say communities in their districts are being shortchanged by the state's PILOT program. A bill to increase funding for the program is in committee.

PLAINFIELD, Mass. — Western Massachusetts communities host a wealth of state-owned land but are not seeing proper compensation from the government for it.

A 2020 report issued by State Auditor Suzanne Bump revealed that the commonwealth's payments in lieu of taxes (PILOT) program for state-owned lands (SOL) is underfunded and negatively affects smaller rural communities in Western Mass compared to larger, wealthier communities in the eastern part of the state.

04:48PM / Saturday, July 24, 2021

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Everyone contributed Saturday as the Pittsfield Little League American Division All-Stars secured a Section 1 Championship. 

But the game began and ended with Christian Barry.    On the mound, Barry struck out the first three batters he faced and the last two batters to come to the plate for visiting Longmeadow.    At the plate, Barry led off the bottom of the first with an inside-the-park home run to right and ended it with a bomb to left that was good enough for a double but only needed to be good enough to drive home Jack Bellafontaine to give the Americans an 11-1, five-inning win and a trip to next week’s state tournament in
