Cindy Brule, left, was elected secretary and Laura Wood as chairman of the School Committee. Eric Denette, elected at the annual town election, was absent. CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Officials are still hoping that funding will come through to help with repairs at Clarksburg School.    The town's state officials have not been optimistic about the chances of the governor releasing a $500,000 earmark placed in a bond by state Sen. Adam Hinds to redo the school's roof — even with the town meeting's passage of a $1 million borrowing to help address building issues.    "I'm kind of disappointed that our local officials and people have sort

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:41AM / Saturday, June 15, 2019

Stephanie Kopala designed the brochure and a postcard.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Declining enrollment and school choice options are lending some competitive overtones to local school districts and Drury High School to make sure parents understand what it has to offer.    The School Committee recently authorized the use of up to $5,000 to print a brochure and postcard to get the word out about the opportunities available at the high school.    "I see this as an investment.

'The Spy Behind Home Plate': Glove, Mask, Cloak-and-Dagger
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
06:05PM / Friday, June 14, 2019
"Get your scorecards. Get your scorecards. Can't tell the spies from the conspirators without a scorecard."   Such was just one of my thoughts after seeing filmmaker Aviva Kempner's fascinating, incredible and rather mind-blowing documentary about Morris "Moe" Berg, Major League catcher, Princeton (B.A.) and Columbia (LL.D.) graduate, speaker of 12 languages who studied Sanskrit at the Sorbonne and, oh, almost forgot, spy for the OSS.    Psst ... He was assigned to help undermine the Nazi atomic bomb program during WWII.    But what drives you crazy as you partake of Kempner's scholarly and entertaining treasure trough of the superbly

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
05:40PM / Friday, June 14, 2019

The church has asked to amend its agreement to allow the temporary housing of two to four RVs for the Methodists who are doing three-week volunteer sessions.    "The organization is part of the United Methodist Church's larger organization," the Rev. Dan Randall told the board on Monday. "Because of the weather up here ... it would only be in

@theMarket: Markets Expect Fed to Cut Rates
By Bill Schmick,
04:08PM / Friday, June 14, 2019
Investors can credit the Fed once again for the market's revival thus far in June. The buying is fueled by expectations of three rate cuts by no later than December. Is that wishful thinking?   While only 23 percent of investors expect a rate cut next week when the Fed meets, 83 percent do expect a cut in July. The odds of another cut in September are now at 63.8 percent, with a third cut in December, which is expected by over half of market participants.   Given that the Fed's job description is to keep inflation under control, while supporting robust employment, one or the other of those variables will need to change in order for the Fed to cut rates. The inflation rate
