By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:21PM / Monday, May 11, 2020

Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, head of the state's reopening advisory board, explains some of the restrictions that will be placed on businesses.  BOSTON — The commonwealth is looking at a four-phase reopening of the economy based on public health data and mandatory safety measures.   "The goal is to begin this process around May 18, but it will be gradual as the facts on the ground will obviously determine whether we actually hit that goal," Gov. Charlie Baker said at Monday's COVID-19 update. "But keep in mind, this is a disease, we're still learning about across the globe."   All non-essential businesses were closed as of March 23 and

Youth Baseball, Softball Leagues Working to Salvage Seasons
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:26AM / Saturday, May 09, 2020

Players in the Williamstown Cal Ripken League eagerly await the start of opening day festivities last spring.  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Playing before an international television audience in Williamsport, Pa., is not the goal for Little Leaguers this year.   Playing games in their own hometowns will be victory enough.   Local youth baseball and softball officials are discussing how they can give youngsters an experience in the sport if and when state and local authorities give the green light.   Last week, Little League announced that it is following the lead of its colleagues in professional, college and high school sports by canceling the World Series and

@theMarket: The Stock Market Is Not the Economy
By Bill Schmick,
04:34PM / Friday, May 08, 2020
If ever one needed an example of the above saying, today's market would prove that point. Friday's unemployment figure for the month of April revealed that 20.3 million Americans are out of work, bringing the unemployment rate to 14.7 percent. The stock market gained more than one percent on the news.   While new cases of COVID-19 are reported and deaths multiply with no cure or vaccine in sight, the NASDAQ turned positive for the year. Corporate earnings have been abysmal and future guidance nonexistent for most companies, but their stocks went up anyway. How can this be, you might ask?   As I have said before, the stock market is a forward-looking mechanism. As such,

'Bang the Drum Slowly': Of Pitchers & Catchers
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
02:07PM / Friday, May 08, 2020

I wish that I were reviewing one of the half-dozen movies certain to be made when this pox upon our house is no more. But until that glorious return to normality has us resuming all the simple joys of life we take for granted, like going to the movies, I'll be retro-reviewing and thereby sharing with you the films that I've come to treasure over the years, most of which can probably be retrieved from one of the movie streaming services. It is my fondest hope that I've barely put a dent into this trove when they let the likes of me back into the

Southwestern Vermont Health Care Resumes Elective Procedures
07:49AM / Friday, May 08, 2020

BENNINGTON, Vt. — Southwestern Vermont Health Care's outpatient surgeries and diagnostic services, like those for imaging and laboratory work, have resumed in full with enhanced safety protocols after Gov. Phil Scott announced May 4 that hospitals could resume these services.

In early March, the governor directed health systems to put on hold non-urgent appointments and procedures as Vermont prepared for, and responded to, COVID-19. 

One important protocol that has been implemented is that all patients should arrive to the hospital or clinic with their own cloth face covering and it must be worn for the entire duration of their visit.

"SVHC has always maintained the

North Adams, Crane at Odds Over Reopening
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:49AM / Friday, May 08, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Crane Stationery apparently says its opening Friday. The city says it hasn't fulfilled all the obligations set out in an order by the mayor on Sunday and so can't open.    But what if it does?   "I hope it doesn't come to that. But we are prepared to intervene," said Mayor Thomas Bernard on Thursday night.    The legacy printer of fine papers and cards closed mid-March along with hundreds of other "non-essential" businesses at the order of Gov. Charlie Baker as the COVID-19 pandemic began to spread within the state.    Last week, the company owned by Mohawk Fine Papers of Cohoes, N.Y., announced it

Northern Berkshire Union Hires Director of Pupil Services
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:22AM / Friday, May 08, 2020
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire School Union on Wednesday night voted to hire Stephanie Pare as the new director of pupil services. She accepted, pending contract negotiations.    The members of the School Committee called it a tough choice between two highly qualified candidates but opted 9-1 to promote internally to replace the retiring Debra Rosselli, who spent 11 years in the post.   The decision came after more than an hour of interviews with finalists Pare and Amanda Brooks-Clemeno and another half hour or more of discussion.    Committee members — some who indicated they had been leaning the other way — were influenced by the

The Independent Investor: Workers face a serious dilemma
By Bill Schmick,
07:01PM / Thursday, May 07, 2020
During the last week or two, the federal government has done an about face concerning the impact of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. From the nightly exhortations to social distance, work at home, and expect more deaths, the message has now switched to go back to work, re-open the economy and, oh, about those deaths, expect even more.   The Trump White House has "officially" left it up to the governors of the states to set a timeline for reopening their economies, since it is illegal to do anything else. The guidelines advise that each state should monitor the number of new cases. Only when they see hard evidence that those cases have not only plateaued but started to
