Charlie Baker last month, museums could be allowed to open as early as July. Recently, the director of Stockbridge's Norman Rockwell Museum and the Southern

04:02PM / Monday, June 08, 2020
BOSTON — Schools planning to reopen in the fall will have to reduce their class sizes to no more than 10 students and keep students 6 feet apart as much as possible.    The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education issued guidelines Friday on required sanitation supplies and safety for reopening schools this fall.    The memorandum covers the first 12 weeks of school and includes social distancing protocols based on the understanding of COVID-19 at the present.    That includes smaller classes at 10 and no more than two staff in a classroom at time. Whenever possible, the students should be isolated in smaller groups with a "consistently

Pittsfield Firm Aiming for Lever-Led COVID-19 Intrapreneur Challenge
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:01AM / Monday, June 08, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Ask Josh Levin about his company's foray into producing personal protective equipment, and he will be quick to clarify what his product is and what it is not.   "The fabric face mask is personal protection, but it's not a medical product," the CEO of LympheDivas said recently.   "What we normally manufacture are true medical devices. But the masks are not something like an N95 medical mask. This is more something people can do to reduce the risk, but, at least in my personal assessment, I don't see fabric masks as a true surgical mask or a true PPE."   In fact, fairly early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, Levin looked

Berkshire Running Center Hosting Virtual Races
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
01:47AM / Monday, June 08, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Since the Pandemic hit, Berkshire Running Center has hosted a series of virtual races keeping the competitive spirit alive in the Berkshire County running community.   Runners don’t ask for much: the right pair of shoes, an open road with mindful drivers, and maybe even the wind at their backs but one thing most certainly missing during the COVID-19 outbreak is the thrill of race day.   "Given the global pandemic, we felt it was the only option to continue to provide that motivation to our runners," Berkshire Running Center owner Kent Lemme said. "When we saw all the big races canceling so far in advance we knew it was going to be

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As a member of a town committee, an officer with the advocacy group Berkshire Grown and a documentary filmmaker, Sarah Gardner has spent years pushing for a stronger local food supply.   So she was glad last month when Beacon Hill followed suit.   As part of its overall response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the administration of Gov. Charlie Baker recently announced $36 million in grants to build up the commonwealth's "food security infrastructure."    "The grants will fund

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Physical and pharmaceutical restraints have been used for years to prevent patients from pulling out critical tubes and monitors but those practices can also cause long-term injury.     "In days gone by, a nurse would heavily sedate you, but we now know that sedation causes more damage for you later, including delirium and dementia, as well as not being able to walk," said Dr. Marie Pavini, a

"He needs a haircut but other than that he's fine," Baker said.   But he cautioned that the state is not out of the woods yet and that residents and businesses should keep up with containment protocols.     "We're

06:53PM / Friday, June 05, 2020

A young student participates in the Black Lives Matter rally Friday.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Margot Besnard attended her first Black Lives Matter march in 2016.

Four years later, the issue is as pronounced as ever, and instead of being a marcher, she was an organizer.

Besnard and Erin Ostheimer, along with the grassroots organization Greylock Together, put out the call, and hundreds of area residents flocked to the Field Park rotary on Friday afternoon to express their anger at the death of George Floyd and their hunger for racial justice in America.   For some, it was their first such rally. For others, like Besnard, Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis Police was

@theMarket: Jobs Jubilee
By Bill Schmick,
06:17PM / Friday, June 05, 2020
A funny thing happened before the market opened Friday morning. Jobless claims, which were supposed to come in at a loss of 8 million, actually did the reverse. Investors were stunned when the Department of Labor announced a gain of 2.5 million jobs. That was cause to celebrate.   Total nonfarm payrolls for the month of May revealed an overall unemployment rate of 13.3 percent, but that was a far cry from the 18.5 percent rate economists had expected. Indications from the most recent data argue that the re-opening of the economy is going far better than expected. That, combined with another $1 trillion in stimulus out of Congress that investors expect to be passed next month, sent
