Councilor Blackmer Needs to Apalogize

Who? I've messaged one councilor earlier this evening but she has not yet responded.  (Feb 15, 2012 | post #27)

Councilor Blackmer Needs to Apalogize

We can't confirm anything without hearing it. What other councilors have said she said it?  (Feb 15, 2012 | post #24)

We'd appreciate it if you'd send us that part of the recording.  (Feb 15, 2012 | post #14)

iBerkshires.com Burying Coverage of Fed Steroids Probe

You caught us! Yep, we avoided that story for more than a week just so we could write something about it and then - bury it! Bury it deeep ... on the "View All Blogs" section on the front, on the blog page, in the most commented section, and on the iBerkshires Blotter. But thanks for pointing out the blog front-page stories aren't showing up under news. That should be fixed by tomorrow, or maybe even today if programming gets to it. Although that will mess up our devious plan to bury things we, you know, write about ....  (Mar 31, 2011 | post #3)

very poor news coverage

We've updated the story with names. It's not easy to get information in small towns over holiday weekends. http://tinyurl.com /24598vo  (Nov 29, 2010 | post #5)

Both sides come up short on insurance trust fund

There are comments being made about who I talked to for this story and why. I just want to point out iBerkshires is NOT a newspaper - we're a Web site at which every story we post is always available. I not only linked to the article last fall in which former Mayor Barrett explained in detail the self-insurance fund, I also included it and all the other pertinent insurance articles at the bottom of this latest one. The article therefore included explanations of the previous administration's practice, responses from two people who will have immediate influence going forward and the actual report.  (Mar 19, 2010 | post #54)

a Walmart wara starts in city

We're wrong: the Transcript mentioned it in a story on Dec. 4. http://tinyurl.com /ybwnvr5 Guess I should read the paper more often.  (Dec 12, 2009 | post #76)

a Walmart wara starts in city

"Miriam Serrano of North Adams said she created the group after reading about the anti-Walmart group in the paper. " What paper? We don't print anything. http://tinyurl.com /yj5u254  (Dec 12, 2009 | post #69)

Another One Bites the Dust: North Adams...

The obituaries are NOT listed under that headline. It's a glitch by the Topix roboblogger; it picks up our headlines and puts them on the preview sections of our homepage. If you click on the link you'll get the story.  (Nov 2, 2009 | post #2)

Proven leadership

Don't confuse Boxcarmedia with iBerkshires. I don't know you and you're not my friend. And I love to post documentation.  (Nov 2, 2009 | post #29)

Barrett seeking to up rooms tax

It means the money was promised. It can take years for it to actually be released.  (Aug 25, 2009 | post #40)
