Berkshire Reps Proud to Be Part of Historic Moment
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:47PM / Wednesday, July 27, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier began her Tuesday rounding up all of the Hillary Clinton delegates from Massachusetts.   As a Massachusetts whip for the Clinton campaign at the Democratic National Convention, she was the one with the forms for them to cast their votes. The delayed flight of one delegate meant logistics had to be figured out to get that vote in. Other delegates were in different parts of Philadelphia. She worked to get the voting forms into each delegate's hand.    "My role is to make sure all of my delegates did that so there was some corralling. We needed to have people in their seats," Farley-Bouvier said.   The

12:01PM / Wednesday, July 27, 2016

Parenting is never an easy job – and, unfortunately, it can be especially difficult if you're doing it on your own.

As a single parent, you face many challenges, not the least of which are the financial ones. But by following the suggestions below, you may be able to make life easier – for you and your children.

* Create a "safety net." On any given day, you could incur an unexpected – and unexpectedly large – expense, such as major car repair, a new furnace or a toothache-inducing bill from your dentist. Your daily cash flow may not be enough to cover these bills, and you won't want to tap into some of your long-term investments or retirement

'Passage' will be performed in Pittsfield.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — It might be nearly 90 degrees outside, but inside the Shire City Sanctuary this week, it's going to seem downright chilly.

That's because the Kickwheel Ensemble Theater (the creative arm of The Berkshire Fringe) is staging an original work called "Passage," which weaves together two parallel story lines of survival: the tale of Sir John Franklin's doomed 19th expedition to conquer the famed Northwest Passage and the story of a modern-day couple on a luxury wellness cruise through the now-melting Arctic.

In a news release, Kickball describes "Passage" as "a dark

Lanesborough's Overtures to Superintendent Irks School Committee
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:11AM / Wednesday, July 27, 2016

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The School Committee is irritated about being sidelined again by town officials over school business, this time over the future of the shared superintendent of schools' office.

Town Manager Paul Sieloff wrote a letter in May on behalf of the Board of Selectmen to Superintendent Douglas Dias looking to strike up a conversation about the future of the office. The Mount Greylock Regional Middle and High School is under renovation and because the state's reimbursement formula does not fund building central offices, the district's administration will eventually have to find a new home.

The Selectmen felt with a shrinking school-age population, there is

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:30PM / Tuesday, July 26, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Reports over the news are of a divisive and split Democratic National Convention, with chants and boos targeting some speakers.   But on the vast floor of the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, state Reps. Paul Mark, D-Peru, and Tricia Farley-Bouvier, D-Pittsfield, aren't hearing that.   Mark is attending the convention as a delegate for Bernie Sanders while Farley-Bouvier is serving as the Hillary Clinton campaign's Massachusetts whip. Both said the tone at the convention is one of unity backing Clinton and not filled with boos and negativity.   "I'm not hearing it and I'm not seeing it," Mark said, though adding he'd

Harrington Calls for Override of Governor's Vetoes
Campaign Statement,
05:31PM / Monday, July 25, 2016

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Democrat Andrea Harrington, candidate for state Senate, is urging the Legislature to restore funding that Gov. Charlie Baker recently cut from the state budget that had been approved by the House and Senate.

"I am deeply troubled as several of the governor's vetoes will be harmful to the people and businesses in the Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin & Hampden Senate District. The governor's vetoes cut funding for drug treatment programs, early education, local health-care infrastructure and the further expansion of the area's creative economy. The governor's reduction of $7.7 million from the Massachusetts Cultural Commission will have a
