Berkshires Beat: Kids Place Hosts Annual Jimmy Bernardo Memorial Ride
02:13PM / Monday, July 09, 2018
Remembering Jimmy

The 23rd annual Jimmy's Ride to benefit victims of child abuse will be held on Saturday, July 28. This annual event is held in memory of Pittsfield native Jimmy Bernardo. Jimmy was born August 13, 1978, and was abducted from a local movie theater on October 20, 1990. A month later, his body was found in Ithaca, N.Y. Three and a half years later, the Bernardo family was able to find peace after the Pittsfield Police captured a suspect when he tried to abduct another young girl in Pittsfield. The suspect subsequently pled guilty to murdering Jimmy and is serving life in prison.

Jimmy's Ride will start at Berkshire County Kids Place once again this year. Register in

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
05:15AM / Sunday, July 08, 2018
  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — If you want things to change, you need to do something different.   That's Andrea Harrington's view when it comes to reforming the criminal justice system. And now, she wants to be that change. She is seeking election as the next district attorney following the retirement of David Capeless.    "We see progressive defense attorneys without prosecutorial experience being elected across the country.

Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:07PM / Friday, July 06, 2018

You should always be able to ask as many questions as you would like when working with your financial advisor. So, before you have your annual review, think carefully about what you'd like to ask.

Here are a few suggestions:

Are my goals still realistic? When you first began working with your financial advisor, you may well have articulated a number of financial goals. For example, you might have said that you wanted to pay for most of your children's college educations, or that you wanted to retire at a certain age, or that you wanted to travel for two months each year during your retirement.

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:00AM / Friday, July 06, 2018
  LENOX, Mass. — Judith Knight says she isn't a natural politician. She's an attorney.   She's a defense attorney who has spent years on the other side of a courtroom from a district attorney's office that operated in a way that she doesn't think is for the best. Back in 2006, her frustration boiled over when she watched the district attorney's office prosecute a teenager over minor drug charges and she launched a campaign to take over the office.    She put forth a progressive platform that includes reprioritizing the cases the office handles, pushed for diversion programs to keep low-level drug dealers out of the courts, and looked to
