Mother's Day Brings Wintry, Rainy Weather
04:15PM / Sunday, May 12, 2019
Yes, it's May 12. And yes, there's a wintry mix of sleet and snow moving through the Berkshires. Happy Mother's Day!   There have been reports of snow at least a half inch of snow in the higher elevations, including Florida Mountain and Readsboro, Vt.    The National Weather Service says sleet and wet snow may produce slick spots across the higher terrain including the Massachusetts Turnpike between Otis, Blandford and Russell.   It was reportedly 30 degrees and snowing on the MassPike near Becket; the speed limit was lowered from the New York border to mile marker 44.   NWS's Albany, N.Y., bureau says there was a trace of snow on Mother's Day in


Tiffany Windows Give North Adams Church Light-Filled Future
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff

Each window was captured by photographer Carin Quirke and printed on metallic paper.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — First Congregational Church is a lot lighter nowadays — both in its physical attributes and its future prospects.    And also in its spirit.    But that now light-filled nave came with a difficult decision last year when the 70-member congregation agreed after months of debate to sell the 10 Tiffany windows that once lined the walls.    "It became an issue with regard to sustainability," said Margeret Whitney, co-chairman of the revisioning committee. "So the sale of the windows, although not the happiest set of


Letter: Honor All Our Children and Community
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Saturday, May 11, 2019

To the Editor:

It was interesting an appreciated that Mass MoCA recently honored the artworks of area students. But, at the same time, the museum continues to dishonor the work of the North Adams schoolchildren, teachers, artist and parents who created the historic depiction of mill workers and their products that adorned the pillars on Marshall Street in North Adams.

To refresh the memory of the reader of this letter, you may recall that last year [] the art museum illegally painted over the artwork with a coat of gray paint. Despite strong support of area residents who signed petitions calling for testing of the site with a possibility of restoration as the art was covered over with an

@theMarket: Tariffs Trash Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
08:44AM / Saturday, May 11, 2019
Volatility in the form of U.S. trade tariffs levied on China cut through investors' complacency with a vengeance this week.  It took less than three days to drop the markets by 3 percent. Is it over or do we have another 5 percent or so to endure?   My bet is that it is over — for now. Sometime during the on-going trade negotiations occurring in Washington today and tomorrow, the thorny trade issues, (such as intellectual property (IP) protection for U.S. companies) will be kicked down the road. A compromise on other, easier issues will be announced as "on-going" (although not inked) and the Chinese delegation will fly home in an atmosphere of

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
05:12PM / Friday, May 10, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Census may still be another year away, but there are jobs available now.   U.S. Census Bureau media specialist Keith Goralski said the bureau is already hiring people for address canvassing this year. The job asks people to confirm addresses of homes, looking for newly built homes and identify homes that may no longer exist. The goal is to get an accurate list of the addresses when the Census process rolls out in 2020.   "We are basically telling everyone that there are opportunities now because there are," Goralski said.   The bureau will be hiring throughout the country for part-time and full-time positions from now through 2020.
