By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:50AM / Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Brayton Elementary School first-graders pose with the books they sent to students in Kenya.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It takes a village to get a load of books from North Adams to an African village.

Brayton Elementary School first-grade teachers Elizabeth Patenaude and Jacqueline Thomas recently spearheaded an effort to send 60 reading textbooks to Chesegem Primary School in Eldoret South, Kenya. They were assisted by Leon Aalberts, a retired teach and minister from Williamstown, as well as Williams College student and Kenyan native Felix Biwott, and two classes of eager first-grade students who not only got to learn about geography but also about the joy of giving back.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:10AM / Tuesday, February 20, 2018

Commissioner of Public Services Timothy Lescarbeau in his new office. Lescarbeau says its easier to keep track of operations with all the departments together. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The massive trucks lined up in a row once filled the Department of Public Works garage to overflowing. Now, they take up barely a quarter of the space in their new home.    Space has been the perhaps the greatest benefit of the new City Yard at Hodges Cross Road. But a close second has been the increase in efficiency and teamwork enabled by having all of the Public Service departments under one roof.    "It's working out awesome, everybody's here," Commissioner of

New 'Boutique Bridal Show' Offers Couples Quieter, Personal Meetings With Vendors
10:55AM / Monday, February 19, 2018

With Valentine's Day having passed and the "engagement season" now officially over, future newlyweds are wondering what's next: "Where will our venue be? Who will cater? Is this vendor reliable?" In a time that should be filled with excitement, the wedding planning process can quickly become a hodgepodge of questions and stress.

Sure, you can ask married friends for advice, but what if you both have different definitions of "good"? Yes, you can read Internet reviews for hours, but who is to say they are completely legitimate? Ultimately, nothing beats meeting with a vendor face-to-face, but it can be tricky to find the time to meet with 10 different

@theMarket: Markets Have Best Week in Five Years
By Bill Schmick,
05:12PM / Friday, February 16, 2018
Stocks have had what is called a "V" shaped recovery this week. The indexes climbed every day at least one percent or more. Will it continue or ...   It wouldn't surprise me if stocks took a breather about now. A bout of profit-taking after the stupendous come-back we have had would be entirely reasonable. If the S&P 500 Index, for example, fell back 2-3 percent over the next week or so that would be healthy.   Remember, we are still in that period of the markets where investors are driven by the fear of missing out. As interest rates continue to climb and bond investors experience losses, the natural thing would be to sell bonds and buy equities.    In
