CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The four small schools in the North Berkshire School Union will be back in class on Jan. 4, even as some larger school districts are planning a remote learning quarantine for the first weeks of the new year.   "We haven't had any positive cases for anybody that works or goes to school in our district, so we're very happy with that," said Superintendent John Franzoni on Wednesday.

Thief Makes Off With Louison House Donations
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
08:24PM / Wednesday, December 30, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — An opportunistic burglar made off with Louison House donations worth a $1,000 or more, along with a sleeping bag and coats early Tuesday morning.   Executive Director Kathy Keeser said the theft was discovered Tuesday when a staff member entered the office at Flood House on Church Street to find the stack of mail she'd picked up the day before was missing. She speculated that the burglar saw cards and donation envelopes in the mail and thought they could get some quick cash.    But there would not have been any cash. The envelopes would have contained checks made out to Louison House — and those can't be cashed since they're

By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
04:37PM / Sunday, December 27, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — An absolute pleasure to interview for this week's Veteran's Spotlight feature was Richard "Dick" McCarthy.   McCarthy served his country as a sergeant in the Army in the Vietnam War from 1966 to 1968.    His basic training was at Fort Dix, N.J., before he shipped out first to Alaska from McGuire Air Force Base.   "We were drinking at a bar and this civilian who was working on the pipeline was bombed and said he wanted to go with us to Vietnam," said McCarthy, than laughed. "We wrapped him in an overcoat and snuck him on the plane. ... The pilot said he didn't have to pay for his flight over but had to pay

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — With minimal COVID-19 cases, McCann Technical School will resume the school year in the current hybrid model.

Principal Justin Kratz said this week that McCann will continue as is and allow students back in the building to participate in shops.   "Things are going well. As well as can be expected in these crazy times," Kratz said. "We of course would rather have all of our students back with us all of the time, but until it is safe to do that, things are going as well as they can."    With rising COVID-19 cases, other area districts have decided to go fully remote as least temporarily.   Earlier this year, McCann opted to

The Retired Investor: Where Have All the Christmas Trees Gone?
By Bill Schmick,
04:22PM / Thursday, December 24, 2020
If you are one of those eleventh-hour holiday Christmas tree shoppers, you may be out of luck this year. Fresh balsam furs and other varieties of the traditional Yule symbol are hard to find.   Blame the pandemic on the scarcity, but at the same time, celebrate the fact that more families than ever before are getting together this holiday season.  And decorating that tree could be an intensely personal experience for the whole family.   My wife, Barbara, and I actually set up our tree on Thanksgiving weekend. Given our ages, we chose to forgo turkey day with our loved ones, who reside in Manhattan, and tried to fill that emotional hole with something else. We found that
