North Adams School Officials Raise Concerns Over Teacher Retention
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:19AM / Monday, December 09, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Each month the School Committee gets a personnel report detailing who's coming, who's going and who's being re-assigned.   There can be several pages involved, particularly at the beginning and end of the school year as grant funded positions are listed, new hires and retirements are posted and non-permanent jobs like coaches and after-school staff are added.   But even on a regular month, there can be a significant amount of moving around in the city's most populous department. That has the School Committee concerned — like others school officials around the Berkshires — about  how to retain teaching staff within the

Veteran Spotlight: PFC Giardina Runs Out of Luck on Day 13
By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
04:28PM / Sunday, December 08, 2019
I met this week's veterans spotlight feature several months ago and I liked him instantly as we really hit it off. He would be described as unequivocally old school — kind, humble, generous with a warm smile and a fabulous personality.    Francis A. Giardina served his country in the Army from 1952 to 1954 in the Korean War.    Growing up in Pittsfield, he was the youngest of three children. "We were poor, but we didn't know it ... we always had food on the table and always had plenty to do," he remembered. After graduating from Pittsfield High School, Giardina ran pool halls for a couple of years before being drafted into the Army in November

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
07:16AM / Sunday, December 08, 2019

About two dozen protesters demanding action on climate change gather on the steps of Williamstown's First Congregational Church on Friday afternoon.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — A leading expert on climate change Thursday told a packed house that while big oil is an enemy, it is not the only one.   Big banks and big insurance play their part.   "The four banks in the world that fund most of the fossil fuel industry are big American banks," Bill McKibben said during his appearance at MCLA for the Elizabeth and Lawrence Vadnais Environmental Issues Lecture. "Chase Bank is the biggest by far and the biggest with a bullet. Chase Bank lent over the last

Whiplash Weather in Store for the Berkshires
01:32PM / Friday, December 06, 2019
Mother Nature is making sure there's a snowy background for Friday night's tree lightings in North Adams and Pittsfield. The National Weather Service is predicting a few inches and up to 5 inches in the higher elevations, with steady snowfall until 10 p.m.    Motorists should beware of slippery roads and low visibility, especially Friday night.   A number of school districts have canceled after-school programs for Friday: Hoosac Valley Regional; Berkshire Arts & Technology Public Charter; Mount Greylock Regional School District; Drury High; and Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union (early dismissal, too).   But wait, this is the Berkshires so you know the

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:10AM / Friday, December 06, 2019

Clarksburg School hopes to have 90 percent of the construction on the entrance done during a two-week holiday vacation. CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Clarksburg students will get a full two weeks off over the Christmas holiday beginning with a half day on Friday, Dec. 20, and returning on Jan. 6, 2020.   The School Committee voted for the two-week block on Thursday to ensure the school will be vacant for construction on the new secure entrance. That means students will have both the Monday and Tuesday before Christmas and will also have Jan. 2 and 3 off as well.    But it doesn't mean fewer days of school — the motion also tacked on three days at the end of the

The Independent Investor: Truth About NATO & Defense Spending
By Bill Schmick,
04:19PM / Thursday, December 05, 2019
While it would appear that President Donald Trump left the London NATO Summit this week empty-handed, the truth is he has already achieved what several presidents before him could not. Unfortunately, it is a shallow victory at best.   Just a week ago, in preparation for President Trump's visit, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization announced a change in the funding of its budget. It agreed to reduce the United States' contribution to the alliance (now 22 percent) and redistribute the costs to other members. As a result, the U.S. and Germany will now pay the same amount. Each will contribute 16 percent of NATO's central budget.   The problem is that NATO's central
