Cemetery With Clarksburg's Namesake Restored & Revealed
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:40AM / Wednesday, May 30, 2018

Nicholas Clark's 200-year-old tombstone has worn away making it difficult to read the lettering.  CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Nicholas Clark's been resting on a knoll above Horrigan Road, and a stone's throw from his home, for more than 200 years.    He hasn't been alone — some four dozen of his relatives and in-laws are interred around him.

And a sign now notes where the town's namesake was buried in

Boucher Wins Write-in for Clarksburg Select Board
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
10:26PM / Tuesday, May 29, 2018
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Select Board will have a full complement this year after Ronald Boucher won write-in victory for a three-year term.    Only 110 ballots were cast in the annual town election on Tuesday, less than 10 percent of registered voters in the town. However, it took about an hour to count all the ballots because of the high number of write-ins, said Town Clerk Carol Jammalo.    Boucher is a new resident, having moved to Clarksburg last summer from North Adams. He does have plenty of experience in local government — he served eight terms on the City Council, including as chairman, and spent a number of years as an appointed member of the

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:56PM / Tuesday, May 29, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As a Harvard Ph.D. in atomic physics, a fellow in the American Physical Society and, currently, interim president of arguably the nation's top liberal arts college, Tiku Majumder has accomplished a lot.   But at some level, he is still trying to satisfy his high school English teacher.   "For me, as totally a math/science kid from fairly early on, admittedly, surprisingly the teacher I think about more than any other is my high school English teacher," Majumder said Tuesday morning at the annual William College breakfast honoring recipients of the college's Olmsted Awards for Faculty and Curricular Development.
