Community submission,
02:39PM / Monday, March 12, 2018
SHEFFIELD, Mass. -- The Greylock boys seventh- and eighth-grade boys travel basketball team wrapped up its season by Adams, 57-53, in the championship game of the Grap Passetto Memorial Tournament at the Berkshire School.   “This weekend was a great way to go out,” Greylock coach Rick Paris said. “Originally we were possibly not going to play in the tournament but decided to play in the end, which ended up paying off. We were without our big Thomas Martin for the entire pool play as he was still recovering from his knee injury which he hurt during the county championships.   “He may not score a lot but he’s a huge part of our defense and rebounding.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning from 11 p.m. Monday through 8 p.m. Tuesday and is forecasting a total accumation of 6 to 12 inches across most of Berkshire County. Accuweather is warning that when all is said and done we could see 8 to 12 inches.

Our friends at WTEN put much of Northern Berkshire County into the 10- to 18-inch range, which is basically what WNYT is saying, too. WRGB seems to have the western half of Berkshire

'Death Wish': What this World Doesn't Need Now
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:19PM / Thursday, March 08, 2018
"Death Wish," essentially a reboot of its 1974 namesake starring Charles Bronson, is problematic at best. For gosh sakes, there's tons of fear, loathing and guns -- the deadly sum of which the world doesn't need, especially at this incendiary and anguishing juncture in our history.    But you can't blame MGM or director Eli Roth for the untimely release of this heir apparent to what became the standard of vigilante ethos. Considering the ceaseless conveyor belt of mass shootings bloodying our landscape, there is never a good time.   You watch and wince.
