By Stephen Dravis,
05:15PM / Monday, August 30, 2021

Select Board Chair Andrew Hogeland leads Saturday's memorial ceremony.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A decade after Tropical Storm Irene devastated the Spruces Mobile Home Park, one of the chief legacies is the knowledge of just how easy it was for the storm to wreak havoc on a vulnerable population on the edge of town and edge of consciousness for many of its residents.   "That night, we realized many of us couldn't afford to stay in a hotel," Carol Zingarelli said of her fellow Spruces residents. "I appreciate what was said earlier about so many people living on the edge.   "Living in Williamstown, people don't think of Williamstown

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
05:49PM / Sunday, August 29, 2021
ADAMS, Mass. -- The Berkshire Thunder Sunday afternoon was down three runs and down to its last three outs.   It was also down two of the starters it began the day with. It was reeling after allowing three unearned runs to lose the lead in the bottom of the fifth. And it was playing an opponent that went 14-0 in the Berkshire Adult Baseball League regular season and carried a 17-1 record into Game 3 of their best-of-three championship series.   But the Thunder found a way.   Paul McBride and Corey Lemuth delivered two RBIs apiece in the seventh, and Jake Barbarotta went the distance on the mound to lead Berkshire to a 6-5 win over the Adams Aces and a BABL 35-year-old
