BCC Graduates Recognized in Remote Commencement
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
07:03PM / Friday, May 29, 2020

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Any other year, the graduates of Berkshire Community College and their friends and families would be filling The Shed at Tanglewood in Lenox.

  But instead of taking the stage, speakers stood alone in front of a backdrop. And instead of being handed their certificates and diplomas, the more than 200 graduates' names were read as their pictures were shown.    What didn't change was the ceremony's broadcast on Pittsfield Community Television, allowing at least a virtual coming together of the BCC community to mark their significant accomplishments.   President Ellen Kennedy reminded those watching how commencement celebrates not just

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Crane Stationery is pulling up stakes after more than 200 years making paper in the Berkshires.    In a statement released Friday afternoon, company officials said they had made the "difficult decision" to shift operations to parent company Mohawk Fine Papers in Cohoes, N.Y.   The news isn't a surprise: Crane announced a month ago it would be laying off nearly its entire workforce of more than 200 by June 19.   "For almost 220 years, Crane has made its home in the Berkshires. It's an indelible part of our history and our culture, and an enormous point of pride," said Thomas O'Connor, CEO of Mohawk in a statement.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:09AM / Friday, May 29, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city's police officers were deputized Thursday as health agents on to assist the health inspector during the pandemic.   "It's just something to address our current situation to expand, I guess, the capabilities of the Board of Health since the Health Department is one person," Health Director Michael Moore told the board on Thursday. "Hope for the best prepare for the worst."   But he and Police Chief Jason Wood wanted to make it clear that it wasn't about "shaking people down for not wearing masks or anything."   Wood said officers were initially guarded about the idea but consulted with their union

The Independent Investor: The Culling of America
By Bill Schmick,
04:45PM / Thursday, May 28, 2020
As the death toll attributed to the coronavirus breached 100,000 in the Unites States this week, among the hardest hit Americans are those in the elderly population. The numbers simply illustrate what we all know. Eighty percent of the known fatalities were at least 65 years old. As such, the virus appears to be very good at selective slaughter.   As one of those who are most susceptible to dying from this virus, I have done a lot of soul searching over our future.  Today, I will begin to share some of these thoughts. Aside from the human loss, for example, what potential impact will this pandemic have on health care costs in the future?   Today, according to the most recent

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:23AM / Thursday, May 28, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday endorsed a resolution supporting bills in the Legislature that seek to expand voting by mail.    The resolution passed 7-2, with Councilor Robert Moulton Jr. and Wayne Wilkinson voting against.    There are a number of bills in the Legislature addressing mail-in voting, a concept being spurred by the novel coronavirus pandemic, but the document specifically points to bills HD.5026 and S.2654, which calls for ballots to be directly mailed to registered voters. This is similar to how voting is done in Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah and Washington State.   A third bill referenced, H.4623 and presented by 2nd

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:04AM / Wednesday, May 27, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The city administration is looking at what kind of scenario North Adams can operate under without knowing how the state budget will play out.    Mayor Thomas Bernard told the City Council on Tuesday night that "worst case is a hard thing to project right now simply because with 44 percent of our budget coming from state sources, a worst case is something that we can't manage, so what we're trying to figure out is what the worst case is that we can reasonably operate under."   The mayor said, in response to Councilor Jason LaForest's questions about an "emaciated" budget, that they would be  "slicing

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center has cancelled and rescheduled events previously slated for June and July.

"As a year-round stage-and-screen presenter of varied content, the Mahaiwe continues to plan for a live season – now just a little further out on the horizon – at the same time that we use digital platforms and explore other options," Acting Executive Director Janis Martinson said. "In addition to missing the joy of artists and audiences meeting in a welcoming historic space, all of us at the Mahaiwe are concerned about the effects of our temporary closure on the broader community.  Our economic footprint – the
