Steve Phaneuf has hung up his whistle after more than 30 years coaching Little League. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Coach Steve Phaneuf decided to hang up his whistle this spring after serving the North Adams Little League for 34 years.   His impact on the city's baseball program will be felt for years to come.   "From a coaching standpoint, I can tell you this: To the player, every player coach Phaneuf has coached who has come up to our program had two things," Drury High School baseball coach Pat Boulger said. "He was fundamentally sound."   If you had a coach Phaneuf player, you had no doubts this guy had the fundamentals of the game down solid.

The City Clerk's vault at Pittsfield City Hall contains a hand written copy of Pittsfield's 1774 resolution to the king. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Though the colonists of Berkshire County were among some of the most vocally ardent in support of the patriot movement during the War for Independence, the conversion of some fairly staunch pockets of local Tory dissent to the common consensus was a colorful and sometimes brutal political process.   In the transitional climate of gradually increasing anti-government sentiment throughout Massachusetts between 1770's Boston Massacre and the later armed skirmishes in 1775, many Berkshire towns were ahead of the curve in the

SUTTON, Mass. -- The Williamstown 10-and-under Cal Ripken baseball all-stars fell to 1-1 in pool play at the state tournament with a 7-6 loss to Hudson on Saturday afternoon.   Williamstown rallied from a 6-4 deficit to tie it in the top of the sixth thanks to a one-out RBI single by Alex Axt and a bases loaded walk drawn by Miles Cece. Hudson pitcher Brady Stewart fielded a line drive back to the mound and got a strikeout to end the threat.   Hudson then won the game in the bottom of the inning.   Axt ended up going 1-for-3 with a pair of RBIs. Jake Cangelosi and Landen Jamula split time on the mound. Cagelosi started and went 4-1/3, striking out two with three

The Clark Art Institute opened its newly built and renovated galleries on Friday. See more Clark photos here; see photos from the parade and readings at WCMA here. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — This July Fourth was a great day to soak up some culture and get soaked by Mother Nature.   Williamstowners did both on Friday as thousands poured into the renovated and expanded Clark Art Institute.   The day kicked off with a reading of the Declaration of Independence at the Williams College Museum of Art and ended with an Eagles Band concert and fireworks show on the Clark's campus.   In between, hundreds braved the rain to march in or watch the town's parade, enjoy a

A reminder what today is really all about: The adoption of a (literally) revolutionary document that stated the grievances of the colonists against England and their resolve to pursue a course of self-determination — without the bindings of hereditary rule.


The Unanimous Declaration
of the Thirteen United States of America
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent

Get thee to a parade!

So it might rain a little. Who cares? It's Independence Day and it's un-American not to watch a parade. Your choices in the Berkshires: Pittsfield's amazing extravaganza at 10 a.m., a longer parade that marches up South Street, Bank Row, Park Place, North Street and Wahconah Street, or Williamstown's lovely little local affair at 11 a.m. on Southworth, Main and Spring streets (followed by the free community barbecue on the grounds of the Clark Art Institute, reopening Friday with a whole new look). 

Then there's the fun at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, featuring music, a community barbecue and the annual Reading of the Declaration

The old Clark meets the new Clark at the intersection of Tadao Ando's Clark Center, foreground, and the 1955 'white building.' WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The physical expansion of the Clark Art Institute makes its public debut on Friday.   But it is only the next step in a philosophical expansion that began six years ago.   The Clark built its reputation on the works by old masters and Impressionists that drew the eye of founders Sterling and Francine Clark.   But at the turn of the 21st century, the Clark began implementing a master plan that envisioned a place at the museum for works from the 20th century and beyond.   "Our future was already

I sit alone finally writing about a subject that I have remained silent about due to my profession and what potentially may be a perception that not everyone agrees with. That being said, I expect criticism, I expect to be called an idiot or told that I don't know what I am talking about. I assume that many will believe it is impossible or that it will never work or that I am just living a fantasy.

Regardless of anyone's response, please know now that if this writing sparks a thought, an action or creates a new circumstance for someone to better themselves, well than my words were not completely presented in vain.
