Victoria Beaupre tells how her experience with the Fall Festival of Shakespeare changed her personally.  LENOX, Mass. — State Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli remembers when Lenox residents couldn't wait for the Tanglewood crowd to finally go home at the end of summer.    That was back when General Electric in Pittsfield employed 12,000 to 13,000 and the cultural attractions were more a matter of pride than the economy.    "Then General Electric and the papers mills started to cut back and go away," he said Thursday morning at Shakespeare & Company's Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre. "We transformed ourselves, we pulled in

By Bill Schmick,
04:05PM / Thursday, May 31, 2018
A political crisis in the fourth largest economy in Europe has spilled over into the financial markets. Global stock exchanges greeted Italy's present political dysfunction by registering major declines — and the crisis may just be getting started.   Back in 2010 through 2012, readers may recall a similar eurozone calamity. Greece was at the center of that maelstrom and, at its worse, threatened the viability of the European Union and its currency, the Euro. This time around, many of the same issues are now bedeviling Italy. The country has the third largest debt load in the world after the U.S. and Japan. It still suffers from double-digit unemployment while their

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
10:14PM / Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Town Moderator Bryan Tanner, Town Clerk Carol Jammalo and Town Administrator Carl McKinney clarify an item in the town budget before the vote. CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Town meeting on Wednesday night easily passed a $4.2 million spending plan for fiscal 2019.    The 53 voters in attendance worked through some 17 articles over an hour and 20 minutes, passing every one of them and raising only a few questions. The longest discussion was related to appropriations from the sewer enterprise fund and had to do with ratepayers having to pick up the slack from delinquent payments.   The school budget was approved at $2,409,566, down about $40,000 from this year. The assessment

09:00AM / Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Do you know about 529 savings plans? If not, you are not alone – although these plans have been around since 1996, many people are still unaware of them. And that's unfortunate, because a 529 plan can be a valuable tool for anyone who wants to help a child, grandchild, friend or other family member save for education expenses.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:40AM / Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Nicholas Clark's 200-year-old tombstone has worn away making it difficult to read the lettering.  CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Nicholas Clark's been resting on a knoll above Horrigan Road, and a stone's throw from his home, for more than 200 years.    He hasn't been alone — some four dozen of his relatives and in-laws are interred around him. But the Clark family cemetery has been little noticed since the last Clark was buried there nearly 90 years ago.    That's changed since a group of volunteers have cleaned up and restored leaning and shattered stones. And a sign now notes where the town's namesake was buried in

Boucher Wins Write-in for Clarksburg Select Board
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
10:26PM / Tuesday, May 29, 2018
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Select Board will have a full complement this year after Ronald Boucher won write-in victory for a three-year term.    Only 110 ballots were cast in the annual town election on Tuesday, less than 10 percent of registered voters in the town. However, it took about an hour to count all the ballots because of the high number of write-ins, said Town Clerk Carol Jammalo.    Boucher is a new resident, having moved to Clarksburg last summer from North Adams. He does have plenty of experience in local government — he served eight terms on the City Council, including as chairman, and spent a number of years as an appointed member of the
