By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:13AM / Tuesday, October 09, 2018
LEE, Mass. — The Berkshire County Education Task Force has completed its initial mission of determining options for local schools facing difficult economic and academic futures.    Now, it's hoping to offer pathways to school officials as they decide whether and how far to proceed toward the task force's solution of a single countywide school district.    William Cameron, task force member and retired superintendent of the Central Berkshire Regional School District, presented the coalition's goals to the meeting of Region VI of the Massachusachusetts Association of School Committees last week.   The task force last met on Sept. 22, he said,

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:07PM / Monday, October 08, 2018
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Principal Tara Barnes will be a little less available this school year.    Barnes told the School Committee she'd made a point of getting back as quickly as possible to parents and guardians when they've called. But after a recent coaching session, she's reorganizing her calendar to get her out of the office and into the classrooms more.    "Being in the classroom is where the work is happening," she told the committee on Thursday. "We all know this because this is where all the magic is happening and sometimes principals get bogged down with reports, and meetings ... we allow things to pull us away from

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:01AM / Monday, October 08, 2018

Children in the kindergarten/accelerated preschool class make lion and mouse puppets to learn about kindness and friendship. FLORIDA, Mass. — The class of third-graders at Gabriel Abbott Memorial School were quick to raise their hands on Friday as their bingo square was called out.    This game wasn't about numbers but about attitudes, empathy and safety.    Each block had a word or phrase related to bullying and relationships like verbal and emotional, trusted adults, walk away, kindness and "think before you click."   "Our words can really hurt someone," said Carol Mulcahy, director for community outreach and education for the

@theMarket: Will China Be Next?
By Bill Schmick,
10:37AM / Saturday, October 06, 2018
After this week's trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, investors are waiting to see if China will now come to the table. What would it take for that to happen?   Mid-term elections could be the trigger. It wouldn't surprise me to see a deal before November — since the polls appear to favor the Democrats. Trump's tariff offensives, while supported by most of his base, are deeply disturbing to those who are feeling the brunt of foreign-trade retaliation.   Farmers, for example, and blue-collar workers in certain steel-related industries, are suffering. Many of them are also part of the 39 percent minority of Americans who support Donald Trump and his

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds has been appointed to co-chair the Special Commission on Improving Efficiencies in Student Transportation by Senate President Karen E. Spilka.

"That is why I am excited by this opportunity to address such a significant issue that impacts school and municipal budgets, and, ultimately, directs money back into our classrooms."

'Fahrenheit 11/9': It's Worse Than you Think
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:00PM / Friday, October 05, 2018
Walk down almost any street USA and ask 10 people if they know who Mike Pence is. You'd be surprised how few do. But I betcha bunches of them know where Miley Cyrus is playing this Friday night. Such is the complacent folly of a citizenry entirely certain that the Founding Fathers put our democracy on automatic pilot. And therefore, no amount of selfish incursion from greedy forces within should tear us away from munching Fritos and gulping mass quantities of beer while we watch today's version of the gladiators do their best to sustain brain injuries.   But hark, good citizen, there are, alas, true patriots in the land, and not the kind that simply wrap themselves in the flag

The Independent Investor: Estate Planning Is for All of Us
By Bill Schmick,
02:32PM / Friday, October 05, 2018
Here is a trick question. What did Aretha Franklin, Tupac Shakur, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln have in common? They are all famous people who died without a will.   In the case of the "Queen of Soul," she died in August leaving $80 million and according to Michigan state law, those assets should eventually be divided up among her four children. In the meantime, the entire estate must go through the probate process, which is both expensive and time-consuming.   Some other famous people who failed to prepare their heirs and beneficiaries for their eventual death are: Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Howard Hughes Sonny Bono, James Brown, Prince, and Michael
