Games and music were featured at the event, which drew hundreds to Noel Field. See more photos here.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Noel Field was turned into a community festival on Tuesday night for a mega-National Night Out celebration.

Children shrieked as they played in the bouncy house, or munched on hamburgers off the grill. Music blasted over the field and a group of young girls gave the "Macarena" a try.

Officer David Lemieux jumped in to lead them through the moves of a song that came out when they were just babes. And the burgers were being tossed by John Morocco, the city's retired public safety commissioner. Helping out were members of the Police Department and

A table with a plaque dedicating it to the late Joan Ellen Rivers. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Readers in the Children's Library will now be able to sit on a bench in a sunny window, curl up in a comfy chair or study with friends around a table.    Spending time in the library was important to longtime teacher Joan Ellen Rivers.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire County offers summer visitors a world-renowned symphony, Tony Award-winning theater and important works of art from the Renaissance to the contemporary.   The region truly has it all ... almost.   Actually, there is at least one hole in the county's arts scene, a hole that Jonathan Loy and Brian Garman are aiming to fill.   "Absolutely, the Berkshires are the most culturally rich place in the country," Loy said recently. "For there not to be opera here is unfortunate and maybe even a problem.   "Opera is an art form that deserves to be heard and seen and supported. By bringing fully produced opera back, what

'Star Trek Beyond': Once More Into the Allegory
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
06:09PM / Monday, August 01, 2016

Justin Lin's "Star Trek Beyond" has a built-in likability factor, just a few notches below Mom and apple pie. Therefore, in the never-ending quest for objectivity in film criticism, the question must be posed: If one had been in a coma since before Gene Roddenberry created the "Star Trek" phenomenon, and upon awakening were shown this latest venture to where no one has gone before, what would he or she think of it?

Don't dwell on the inherent sadness of how young our viewer must have been when lapsing into a coma. It's hypothetical. But his name is Billy.

The contention here is that, more than likely, while dining on the requisite graham crackers and
