North Adams Trying to Determine 'Worst Case' Budget Picture
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:04AM / Wednesday, May 27, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city administration is looking at what kind of scenario North Adams can operate under without knowing how the state budget will play out.    Mayor Thomas Bernard told the City Council on Tuesday night that "worst case is a hard thing to project right now simply because with 44 percent of our budget coming from state sources, a worst case is something that we can't manage, so what we're trying to figure out is what the worst case is that we can reasonably operate under."   The mayor said, in response to Councilor Jason LaForest's questions about an "emaciated" budget, that they would be  "slicing

Mahaiwe Changing Up Its Upcoming Schedule
10:54AM / Tuesday, May 26, 2020

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center has cancelled and rescheduled events previously slated for June and July.

"As a year-round stage-and-screen presenter of varied content, the Mahaiwe continues to plan for a live season – now just a little further out on the horizon – at the same time that we use digital platforms and explore other options," Acting Executive Director Janis Martinson said. "In addition to missing the joy of artists and audiences meeting in a welcoming historic space, all of us at the Mahaiwe are concerned about the effects of our temporary closure on the broader community.  Our economic footprint – the

Know Your Risk Tolerance at Different Stages of Life
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:32AM / Tuesday, May 26, 2020

As an investor, you will always need to deal with risk of some kind. But how can you manage the risk that has been made clear by the recent volatility in the financial markets? The answer to this question may depend on where you are in life. 

Let's look at some different life stages and how you might deal with risk at each of them: 

• When you are first starting out: If you are early in your career, with perhaps four or even five decades to go until you retire, you can likely afford to invest primarily for growth, which also means you will be taking on a higher level of risk, as risk and reward are positively correlated. But, given your age, you have time to overcome the

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:03AM / Tuesday, May 26, 2020
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — A 37-page report released presented to Clarksburg and Stamford, Vt., last week lays out the pros and cons of an interstate school district merger.    The report by Public Consulting Group looks at a broad range of factors and challenges in such a merger and comes to the conclusion it can be beneficial to both towns if "done thoughtfully."   "PCG believes the proposed merger model is both educationally and fiscally sound," the report states.   It recommends a governing body of seven with three from Stamford and four from Clarksburg; teacher licensure and retirement through Massachusetts; standards-based curriculum; special

02:31PM / Monday, May 25, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Center for EcoTechnology on Wednesday will host a webinar to help small businesses learn about the benefits of weatherization.   "Right now, due to the current COVID-19 and economic situation, utilities have temporarily increased incentives available to small businesses – in some cases up to 70-100 percent of installed energy saving measures will be covered," said Katherine Butler, the special projects manager at CET.   "This means it’s a terrific time for businesses to pursue these energy efficiency measures. In general, weatherization is a phenomenal way to stimulate the local economy, save businesses money, and help the

CBS News Inviting Nationwide Participation of Taps
12:09PM / Monday, May 25, 2020
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Trumpeters and musicians of all ages across the nation are being invited to play taps at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day.   The idea comes from CBS News "On the Road" correspondent Steve Hartman and retired Air Force bugler Jari Villanueva to keep the spirit of the holiday alive. Parades and observances have been canceled or limited because of the novel coronavirus pandemic.    Instead of gatherings that might spread the deadly and highly contagious COVID-19, buglers and trumpeters are asked to stand alone to play taps to mark the holiday dedicated to the nation's military personnel who have lost their lives.    iBerkshires was alerted

College Leaders Talk about Lessons Learned from COVID-19 Crisis
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:54AM / Monday, May 25, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Higher education is learning lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic that it will inform their operations long after the crisis has passed, a group of top administrators agreed on Friday.   "I had begun to think about the ways in which the modalities of teaching that remote learning offers can infuse and enrich some aspects of teaching, without suggesting that we would move in any way to a fully remote learning platform or even a largely remote platform," Williams College President Maud Mandel said.   "There are aspects of the modality of remote learning I think faculty have found to be enriching of their teaching, and that's one area that I

In Cautious Song, Early Birds Proclaim Vernal Awakening
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
05:56PM / Sunday, May 24, 2020

Oh what a joy to see goldfinches in small feeding flocks dining on sunflower seeds provided in the porch feeders. It is time with a steel bristle brush to clear out last year's thistles and scrape away any rust clogging the tiny holes suited so well for their small bills.

What a treat to watch showy yellow and black males, their mottled feathers shifting to peak molt. Female goldfinches are overall more drab in softer hues of field grey-green but on the nest will be less obvious in camouflage. For several weeks ahead they wait until late spring to commence nest-building.

Their fleecy basket is woven securely in poplar trees with tight fibers to adjust for wind. Whether foraging on

Berkshires Beat: Berkshire Museum Starting Series of Renovations
09:46AM / Saturday, May 23, 2020
Museum renovations

Construction fencing and heavy machinery will appear on South Street next week as the Berkshire Museum begins essential renovations. Together, three capital projects will preserve the 117-year-old museum structure and protect its unique collection of fine art, historical objects and scientific specimens for many years to come. Improvements include a modern sewer line, freight lift, and extensive waterproofing around the building’s basement level.

The lengthiest and most visible phase of construction will be the installation of a new sewer line to replace the original pipe installed when the historic institution was first built in 1903. The new plumbing will connect
