Lanesborough Selectmen Want Greater Role in Hiring Police
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
02:27AM / Tuesday, July 10, 2018
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The Board of Selectmen are looking for a greater role in hiring police officers.   For years the town has left the interviewing of candidates up to the Police Advisory Review Commission. That group of five members perform the interview and send recommendations to the Board of Selectmen. Typically, the Selectmen accept and approve the candidates — though that hasn't always necessarily been the case.    "I don't like appointing somebody based on a piece of paper," Selectman Hank Sayers said on Monday when the board was asked to appoint four new officers.   Sayers wants the Board of Selectmen to do its own interviews.

By Nancy Salz, Special to iBerkshires
02:56PM / Monday, July 09, 2018

What a rare and delicious treat – a large Boston Pops Orchestra playing Leonard Bernstein's musical "On the Town" behind a stellar Broadway cast dancing and singing to perfection. The performance took place at Tanglewood on the evening of July 7 before a huge, enthusiastic audience. It was part of this summer's Bernstein 100 birthday celebration. Even the weather was in the cool, comfortable 60s.

The musical, Bernstein's first, is based on Jerome Robbins's ballet idea, "Fancy Free." With book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green, "On the Town" premiered in 1944 during World War II. Between the movie and the four major Broadway

Remembering Jimmy

The 23rd annual Jimmy's Ride to benefit victims of child abuse will be held on Saturday, July 28. This annual event is held in memory of Pittsfield native Jimmy Bernardo. Jimmy was born August 13, 1978, and was abducted from a local movie theater on October 20, 1990. A month later, his body was found in Ithaca, N.Y. Three and a half years later, the Bernardo family was able to find peace after the Pittsfield Police captured a suspect when he tried to abduct another young girl in Pittsfield. The suspect subsequently pled guilty to murdering Jimmy and is serving life in prison.

Jimmy's Ride will start at Berkshire County Kids Place once again this year. Register in

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
11:59AM / Monday, July 09, 2018

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The Greylock Thunder Sunday watched a 2-1 lead evaporate in a ragged third inning.   And then, the Thunder got down to business.   Greylock batted around and scored eight runs in the bottom of the third en route to a 12-7 win over Raynham in the championship game of the Babe Ruth Softball New England Regional at the Doyle Complex.   “That was huge for this team to respond,” Greylock coach Matt Witek said. “Usually, the negative comes down on them, and they lose it a little bit. They responded big offensively, came out strong and did everything we asked them to do.   “We gave them tasks this week, and one of the tasks was to be
