By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
04:44PM / Friday, October 21, 2016
ADAMS, Mass. — The Harvest Fest will come to Bowe Field for the first time this Saturday.   Organizer Annmarie Belmonte said the idea for the event was to give people something to do this fall.   "Basically is there is not much to do around here, and, I hosted Hi-Jinx that went off without a hitch, so I thought I would try something else," Belmonte said.   The "Rising of the Corn" event is starting small at four hours, with hopes to grow next year.   The fest at the Adams Agricultural fairgrounds is being sponsored by Izzy's Diner and Pizza and Bounti-Fare.

'The Accountant': Adds Up Smartly
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:14PM / Friday, October 21, 2016

This is an often captivating, physical and mental road trip through some rather intricate loopholes that'll have you wondering if Humpty can ever be put together at

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
12:08AM / Friday, October 21, 2016

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Funds set aside for a feasibility study of Clarksburg School are coming up short.

The School Building Committee voted on Wednesday to kick a request for another $45,000 to the School Committee. The study is the first step in determining construction options for the 50-year-old school.  

The town a year ago approved expending $250,000 for the study, with $100,000 from the school's stabilization fund (set aside specifically for this use) and $150,000 from the town stabilization fund with the expectation that money would be reimbursed. The entire project is estimated at $8 million to $10 million.
