Tanglewood and Sevenars: Classical Music Heaven
By Stephen Dankner, Special to iBerkshires
01:35PM / Wednesday, July 19, 2017

Tanglewood enters its third week, and the highlights are many; indeed, every concert will be memorable. The legendary Emerson String Quartet present a musico-theatric "Russian Fantasy," followed by an all-Schubert evening. Deeply moving symphonies by Bernstein and Tchaikovsky ensue, with heroic piano concertos by Beethoven and Prokofiev to follow. Orchestral masterworks by Kernis, Britten and Sibelius, and a celebration of early-20th century French vocal music conclude this week's listing of stellar performances of great and amazingly diverse musical offerings.

If, for whatever inexplicable reason the bounteous musical fare at Tanglewood isn't enough to pique your

Not all investments are created equal. Some are better suited for short-term goals, while others can help you build resources for objectives far in the future. As an investor, then, one of your biggest challenges will be to match your short- and long-term goals with the appropriate investment vehicles. How should you proceed?

For starters, identify your short- and long-term goals. Your shorter-term goals will change throughout your life. When you are starting out in your career, for example, you might aspire to purchase a home in the next three to five years.

Pantuso's Gem Leads SteepleCats to Win in Sanford
09:29PM / Tuesday, July 18, 2017
SANFORD, Maine -- The North Adams SteepleCats got just enough offense at Goodall Park on Tuesday night, holding on for a 2-1 victory over the Sanford Mainers.   The victory clinched the season series for the SteepleCats over the Mainers.   Alex Pantuso (Slippery Rock) was brilliant for North Adams in his seven and a third innings on the mound. The righthander struck out eight Sanford hitters, and allowed his only walk in his eighth and final inning of work. Pantuso allowed just one run on three hits over his 7-1/3 innings of work.   An unearned run allowed North Adams to take the lead in the top of the second. Tyler Walters (Slippery Rock) led off the frame with a single.

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:32PM / Tuesday, July 18, 2017
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The chairman of the Berkshire County Education Task Force says he was as surprised as anyone when the group voted to recommend a single school district for the county's 30 towns and two cities.   But John Hockridge is convinced that the proposal makes sense for students and taxpayers alike.   "Most of us thought that was not the direction we were headed in 32 meetings over the last couple of years," Hockridge, a member of the North Adams School Committee, said on Tuesday. "But we went through a process on Saturday that involved breaking into six groups for thorough discussions of the options.   "From the breakout groups, the

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:15PM / Tuesday, July 18, 2017
BOSTON, Mass. — State Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli is taking over the House chairmanship of the Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources, and Agriculture for the late Rep. Gailanne Cariddi.   Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo appointed Pignatelli to the seat that was previously chaired by his former Berkshire delegation colleague, Cariddi, who died earlier this year. The dean of the Berkshire delegation will likely be removed from his current committees to focus solely on the chairmanship.   "Clearly, I am very honored. This is a key legislative position in leadership," Pignatelli said. "It bodes really well to have the chairman be from
