12:34PM / Tuesday, November 15, 2016

Mayor Richard Alcombright, left, and Town Administrator Tony Mazzucco teamed up on advocating for the MassWorks grant to complete the scenic rail.

ADAMS, Mass. — The state has awarded .6 million to make the final mile connecting the town to North Adams by rail a reality.

The MassWorks funding for the Berkshire Scenic Railway was part of the more than million in grants awarded on Tuesday morning for projects in the two communities.

Housing and Economic Development Secretary Jay Ash was at the Adams Station at 3 Hoosac St. on Tuesday morning to tell officials that the last 6/10th of a mile of track to bring the rail to the station was a go.

"The last time I was here I


North Adams Planners Want Original Solar Array Renderings

Building Inspector William Meranti said he does not know what happened to the original renderings after the meeting.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Planning Board called a solar array developer on the carpet Monday for failing to comply with the visual renderings it presented.

But no one can find the plans that the board approved.

A 1.32-megawatt solar array off Reservoir Road has sparked complaints because of its high visibility from numerous points on the city's east side. The board says the plans submitted last year portrayed a much different view with a far less visible array.

Clean Energy Collective representatives were asked to return on Monday with the original renderings

Redwood Motel Project Lays Groundwork for Bridge, Trails
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:51AM / Tuesday, November 15, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Redwood Motel developers are laying the groundwork for a pedestrian bridge over the Hoosic River and hiking trails on the river's north side.

The Conservation Commission on Monday night accepted a notice of intent for the construction of the bridge, which will be in the "inner raparian zone" of the river and bordering the floodplain, vegetated wetland and in the buffer zone. It also found that the Wetlands Protection Act was not applicable to test excavations around the former wastewater treatment plant property where the hiking trails are proposed.

The redevelopment of the old motor court by a partnership largely based in Boston has grown to

"Ben's long history of public service will complement Nexamp's expert team of local development professionals," said Zaid Ashai, chief executive officer of Nexamp, in a statement. "He joins us at the most exciting juncture in our company's young

Williamstown Joins Nationwide Protests Against Trump
By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
11:21AM / Monday, November 14, 2016

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Nearly one week ago, Donald J. Trump was elected president of the United States.

On Saturday morning in Williamstown, a group of several hundred students and community members joined protesters all over the country in denouncing the results of the election.

Demonstrators of all ages filled Field Park with signs reading "Not Our President," "Love Trumps Hate" and "Black Lives Matter." Cars driving by honked, eliciting cheers from those at the demonstration, which was organized by North Berkshires for Racial Justice in conjunction with students and staff from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and Williams College, Buxton School,


SVMC Pownal Campus Marks Successful First Year
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:21AM / Monday, November 14, 2016

SVHC President Thomas Dee sees the Pownal campus as a prototype for future centers and as something that can be expanded.

POWNAL, Vt. — Southwestern Vermont Medical Center's Pownal campus opened up just a year ago to fill a need for medical care in the area and a model for the future of primary care.

Since then, some 4,600 patients have come through doors, a third of them from Massachusetts to the south.

"We knew that Pownal was an underserved area and having primary-care health center was critical," said Thomas Dee, president and CEO of Southwestern Vermont Health Care. "We're looking to have a number of these centers throughout out our coverage area.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:53AM / Monday, November 14, 2016

Eliot Levine, senior researcher manager for the Donahue Institute, presented the Phase 1 report on Saturday morning.

DALTON, Mass. — Enrollment is declining in Berkshire County schools and costs are rising.

It's one of those things everyone knows — now there's concrete data confirming those notions and pinning down some of the effects on Berkshire County education.

The Berkshire County Task Force on Saturday morning reviewed a 77-page report commissioned from the University of Massachusetts' Donahue Institute on the state of county education.

It's not pretty.

Enrollment is down 22.3 percent over the last 15 years in 17 of the school districts being


Bella Roma Pizzeria Now Open in North Adams
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
06:50AM / Saturday, November 12, 2016
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Pizza has returned to the corner of Main and Eagle streets with the opening of Bella Roma on Friday.

The corner location has long been a pizzeria, dating back to the 1970s, operating under different names and owners. That ended abruptly earlier in the summer when Supreme Pizza was closed by order of the Health Department because of violations and did not reopen.

Bella Roma owner Ilyas Ozdemir said when he saw that Supreme Pizza closed and the location was vacant he could not pass up the opportunity.

"This business closed down and we wanted to come here with a different menu," he said. "It's a great location."

Clarksburg Rededicates Town Honor Roll on Veterans Day
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
08:47PM / Friday, November 11, 2016

Veterans Day observances were held on the newly refurbished porch entrance at town Hall.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The crowd was bigger 30 years ago the last time the Clarksburg honor roll was dedicated.

U.S. Rep. Silvio O. Conte was there, the Berkshires then state Sen. Peter Webber and state Rep. Frank J. Matrango. And the parents of Peter A. Cook, for whom the post is named.

The North Adams Transcript published a supplement for the dedication on that Memorial Day in 1986 filled with congratulatory ads from businesses — many now long gone — and the names and pictures of those on the honor roll.

On Friday morning, a small group of townspeople and veterans gathered again


Pittsfield, Williamstown, North Adams Mark Veterans Day

Richard Kurek is presented the Veterans Coalition Veteran of the Year award in Pittsfield.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Veteran Service Officer James Clark has always felt that Veterans Day got the "short end of the stick" when it comes to holidays.

Most people do not get the day off from work like they do on the Fourth of July. And, Memorial Day is seen as the holiday to honor those who died in the armed forces. But, Clark says Veterans Day is just as important.

"It is a day we recognize not just those who have given it all in war but to all those who have worn the uniform of service. This day above all is a day to celebrate the choice one makes to serve their
