At BArT Charter, the Show Must Go ... Online
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:07AM / Saturday, May 02, 2020

Like other schools in the state, BArT charter school is closed, making it impossible for drama students to put on their spring production. ADAMS, Mass. — When schools were forced to close in March, the drama group at Berkshire Arts and Technology Public Charter School could have thrown in the towel on its spring production.   Instead, it decided to build a better "Mousetrap."   "We did not want to give up on the play and do want to keep the connection going with our cast mates," said John Kozak, a sophomore who has been involved in productions at school since the sixth grade. "We were all excited about doing 'The Mousetrap.'

@theMarket: Earnings Fail to Support Stock Market
By Bill Schmick,
04:14PM / Friday, May 01, 2020
Despite the expectation that earnings this quarter and next were going to be a disappointment, stocks have been gaining. That is because results have not been as low as some analysts have projected. However, when is better than bad not good enough for investors?   It appears we have found out this week. It is a known fact that mega-cap, technology companies (the FANG stocks) have been leading the market throughout this rebound. This week, several of these companies reported and while the results, in some cases, have been stellar, (given the overwhelming economic negatives in the economy), others were simply "acceptable."   Two of the largest market darlings, Amazon and

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:45PM / Friday, May 01, 2020

Charlie Baker on Friday signed an executive order making the wearing of face masks mandatory in locations where people cannot socially distance at least 6 feet.    "We view this as common sense and an important way on a statewide basis to establish for the long term a set of standards for what we would call the new normal," the governor said at his daily COVID-19 update.    The CDC has information on how to make and wear a mask here.   Baker said a significant part of the population is testing positive for the

Hinds: Berkshires May Be Ready for Reopening Ahead of State
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:32PM / Friday, May 01, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds is floating the idea that the Berkshires may be ready for a phased opening sooner than other parts of the state based on the number of COVID-19 cases.    In an interview on iBerkshiresTV on Thursday, Hinds noted that Gov. Charlie Baker is considering how the state will "reopen" after the stay-home advisory expires on May 18.    "Everyone's keenly aware that we don't want to open up and then have another surge medically on our health institutions," said Hinds.   But, he said, it's also apparent that the "surge" in medical cases of the novel coronavirus is peaking at different

As of the end of April, more than 30 million Americans have joined the ranks of the unemployed. Companies have closed, while the pandemic has forced many employees to remain at home. If you are one of the jobless victims of this pandemic, here is some advice on your next steps you might take.   First off, do not panic. If there was ever a time for this to happen, it is now.

May Is Mental Health Month; Time to Maintain 'Connection' During Pandemic
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:30PM / Thursday, April 30, 2020
BOSTON — You do not hear much about the up side of a global pandemic, but Gov. Charlie Baker on Thursday was able to inject a note of levity into his daily COVID-19 update.   "I've tried for years to get my three kids to read books — wildly unsuccessfully," Baker said. "My daughter and a friend of hers [recently] decided to start a book club because it would give the two of them plus a number of their friends a reason to chat every night, something to talk about.   "They have now been reading books for a couple of weeks, talking every single night about what they're reading in the books they've got. They even asked me what I would

'Sullivan's Travels': Goes First Class
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:19PM / Thursday, April 30, 2020

I wish that I were reviewing one of the half-dozen movies certain to be made when this pox upon our house is no more. But until that glorious return to normality has us resuming all the simple joys of life we take for granted, like going to the movies, I'll be retro-reviewing and thereby sharing with you the films that I've come to treasure over the years, most of which can probably be retrieved from one of the movie streaming services. It is my fondest hope that I've barely put a dent into this trove when they let the likes of me back into the

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Sam Gomez 5K road race is on for this weekend to benefit the Elizabeth Freeman Center.    With COVID-19 limiting the way people can interact, one would think a road race would certainly be out of the question.   But Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' Student Government Organization, the race organizers, found a creative solution.   "We saw that some other races around the country and in the Berkshires had made their races virtual and were inspired to make our race virtual as well," Student Government Association members Fabby Street and Megan Bantle said in a joint email. "This way we can still advertise our amazing
