Biz Briefs: BerkShares Looking For 'Ambassadors'
04:24PM / Monday, July 24, 2017

Getting the word out: BerkShares has received a grant from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund of Newmarket, N.H., to launch a new initiative called BerkShares Ambassadors.

However, the organization realized that they still need people "pounding the pavement" in order to really spread the word.

Contemplating this question, BerkShares board member Michael Tesoro spotted the opportunity to create a powerful experience for local young people that would lead

'The Big Sick': Has a Healthy Outlook
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:23PM / Friday, July 21, 2017
Director Michael Showalter's "The Big Sick," based on Pakistani-born comedian/actor Kumail Nanjiani's real-life story, is often hilarious proof that in jest there is truth.
