By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
09:49PM / Tuesday, July 24, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Rivalry is the essence of high school sports.   And a little friendly rivalry between teammates can go a long way.   So when Pittsfield High’s Carter Matthews followed Taconic graduate Jake Flynn in the rotation for Tuesday’s American Legion District Championship playoff game, their Post 68 coach was not above stoking their rivalry.   “Carter’s one of our biggest competitors,” Pat Bassi said. “I told him, kiddingly, before the game, ‘Are you going to try to match Jake from last night?’ He said, ‘I’m going to try my best coach,’ and he did.’ “   On the heels of Flynn’s

Lee Selectman Wickham Making Bid For State Senate
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:30AM / Monday, July 23, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Thomas Wickham describes himself as a "realist" and a "moderate" and is looking for a seat in the state Senate.   Eleven years ago he received a tax bill that frustrated him. But instead of just getting mad and complaining about it, he got involved.    "After I got my taxes, I was kind of mad. I figured I wanted to get involved and figure out what is going on," Wickham said. "I started on the Planning Board 10, 11 years ago learning how zoning goes and how we zone businesses in town, whether we are friendly or not."   That experience led him to get involved with the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission.

Hinds Backs Efforts to Bolster Mountain Biking Trails
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
07:08AM / Sunday, July 22, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds knows mountain biking is an emerging industry. But, he also knows people who drive through the Berkshires to get elsewhere for it.   "Mountain biking has been identified as an industry that is growing and we are well positioned for it," Hinds said.   According to New England Mountain Bike's Berkshire County Branch President Alison McGee, there are hundreds of great mountain biking trails throughout Berkshire County. But, most aren't mapped. Unless people are in certain Facebook groups or know others who can show them around, many don't know about them. She knows there are different levels of maintenance being

@theMarket: Markets Remain Range-Bound
By Bill Schmick,
04:18PM / Friday, July 20, 2018
It's the same old song. It has been playing over and over since the end of January. Higher interest rates, a stronger dollar, and, of course, the inevitable and meaningless stream of tweets from our Tweeter-in-Chief are keeping stocks range-bound. How long will this condition persist?   Both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 Index have now posted their longest consolidation since 1984. The two indexes have been in correction territory for 113 trading days. That is a longer stretch than we have seen in decades — including the period of the 2008 Financial Crisis.   In 1984, it took the S&P 500 Index 122 days to emerge from the swamp, while the Dow
