By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:25AM / Thursday, June 27, 2019

Dan Wolf manipulated negatives to create creepy to horrific artworks. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Berkshire Art Museum opens its sixth season by dipping into dark matter — art that's slightly twisted, disturbing, tortured, sorrowful, disastrous and, well, dark.    That's the theme running through "Not Just Another Pretty Picture," a group exhibit that opens on Thursday at 6 p.m. during the first DownStreet Art of the season.     "I like to do shows that I can relate to and also I feel that maybe are a little bit underrepresented in galleries," said museum founder Eric Rudd. "Gallery dealers will tell you what sells are

The 'groundbreaking' filled a pot for planting daisies, a symbol of hope.  ADAMS, Mass. — The imposing Victorian on Old Columbia Street isn't just any house — it's  been a place of rebirth for  thousands of struggling and homeless area residents.   "You are not just in any yard, looking at just any house. This is my birthplace, in my opinion," said Brandi Doran.   Doran told the dozens of community members, volunteers, supporters and elected officials on Wednesday morning that Louison House had been the place where she learned to deal with her agorophobia.    "Thanks to all the efforts of the most amazing

Berkshire Thunder Posts 13-Inning Win in BABL
01:31PM / Wednesday, June 26, 2019
DALTON, Mass. -- Jesus Lay worked a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the 13th to give the Berkshire Thunder a 4-3 win over the Berkshire Bandits in the Berkshire Adult Baseball League last weekend.   It was 2-2 after nine innings that featured strong pitching from starters Joe Delsoldato and Seamus Morrison.   The Bandits had a chance to go on top in the 11th, but a great relay to Lay at the plate cut down the go-ahead run on a double by Mitch Storie.   In the 12th, the Bandits took the lead on a bases-loaded wild pitch.   In the bottom of the frame, the Thunder faced two-out with a man on second when an errant throw on a ground ball allowed the tying run to come

Councilor Marie T. Harpin tried to amend the airport budget as a way to get funds for lifeguards at Windsor Lake.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday approved a $41 million spending plan for fiscal 2020 — but not until spending nearly an hour debating where to find $14,000 for lifeguards.    Councilor Marie T. Harpin moved to reduce the airport budget by $14,000 — first from its miscellaneous line and then from its maintenance salary line — as a way to find money to keep lifeguards at the public beach at Windsor Lake.    In the end, Mayor Thomas Bernard said he would be willing to discuss the use of reserve account funds

Summer is here at last. For many people, it's time to get the car ready for a long road trip. And with GPS-enabled smartphones, it's now a lot easier to navigate these drives without getting lost.

During your life, you may take many journeys – one of which is the long road you will travel toward your financial goals. But even on this path you can benefit from a "GPS" in the form of your goal-oriented, personalized strategy.

Your investment strategy can function this way by helping answer these questions:

How far do I have to go? Your smartphone's GPS can quickly tell you how many miles you need to travel to arrive at your destination. And a well-constructed


Tanglewood's Learning Institute Opens This Week
12:03PM / Tuesday, June 25, 2019

The summer concert season has arrived, and how fortunate are we music lovers to be living right here, in the Berkshires or Southern Vermont, at what can only be described as "music and cultural central." It's clear that this will be an especially exciting and brilliant festival season.

Here are my recommended picks of the week for the upcoming concerts and related events to be experienced in venues at three of our most noteworthy regional music festivals.


One of the most anticipated events of Tanglewood's 2019 music season - the official opening weekend of the Linde Center for Music and Learning and Tanglewood Learning Institute programs - will take place June


Gearing Up for Old and New Pop Idols
By Grace Lichtenstein, Guest Column
11:32AM / Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Alan Freed. Queen. Earth, Wind & Fire. Southside Johnny. These are among the treats awaiting Berkshire pop and dance enthusiasts in the week before July 4.

Berkshire Theatre Group

Older folks surely remember the pioneering DJ Alan Freed, who practically invented rock 'n' roll radio (for white listeners) back in the day. The music was considered dangerous in the beginning and Freed was a pied piper leading teenagers astray. Now, at the Colonial Theater in Pittsfield, the Berkshire Theatre Group and Caiola Productions presents a new musical, "Rock and Roll Man: The Alan Freed Story," starting Thursday June 27. The show runs through July 21.

Even those who don't

Something New Under the Sun: Solarize Project Begins in North Adams, Williamstown
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
05:24PM / Monday, June 24, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Six years ago, the Solarize Williamstown initiative helped 79 homeowners add solar photo-voltaic panels to their properties.   Six years later, Solarize Plus looks to replicate and expand on that model thanks to more options, a wider pool of property owners, new technology and a greater need than ever to reduce the use of fossil fuels.   It seems like weekly new evidence is released about the threat of climate change, which the scientific community overwhelmingly agreed is fueled in part by human activity.   Just last week, a study by the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development found that in the next 20 years, U.S. coastal communities
