By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:15AM / Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Williamstown Moderator Adam Filson ran Monday's meeting, which was attended by Mount Greylock Superintendent Kimberley Grady. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — By a vote of 10-3, Jamie Art was chosen Monday to fill a vacant seat on the Mount Greylock School Committee.   Per the regional agreement that joins Lanesborough and Williamstown in the preK-12 district, the vacancy created by the departure of Joe Bergeron required a meeting of the remaining School Committee members plus the select boards from both the district's member towns.   That made for 14 eligible voters. Thirteen attended Monday's meeting with one member of the School Committee, Williamstown's Alison

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

Gentlemen, Check Your Engines: Why Men Don't Seek Preventive Care and Why They Should
By Dr. Leigh LoPresti,
10:41AM / Monday, June 24, 2019

Gentlemen: When did you last have a medical check-up?

If you are like a lot of men, you may be skipping this health care ritual of getting "checked out." And if you are a man under 40, you might be missing the opportunity to improve and maintain your health and prevent disease later in life.

As a family practice physician for 33 years, I enjoy treating all the members of a family, of all ages. But I routinely don't see the husbands, dads or male partners unless a health problem arises. Younger men, in my experience, are infrequent visitors to the medical office, and, in general, men are less connected to their health and wellness than women. I sometimes hear my male

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:35PM / Sunday, June 23, 2019

Sue Kirby, left, Kathy George and Jane Russett are honored on their retirements Tuesday in an assembly at Williamstown Elementary.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Sue Kirby can remember when physical education classes looked a lot different than they do today.   "Muriel Flagg had two canes. I don't know what happened to her, because she wasn't always like that," Kirby said this week while reminiscing about her career. "I remember you had to climb the ropes, and she hit you with a cane to get you up the rope.   "We don't even have the ropes."   And they certainly don't have the canes.   But Kirby found her own ways to

@theMarket: Stocks Should Move Higher From Here
By Bill Schmick,
04:09PM / Friday, June 21, 2019
It was a good week for investors. The S&P 500 Index hit an all-time high. The Fed indicated that they might cut interest rates sometime soon, and the President is once again optimistic about a China trade agreement. That’s a heady cocktail that could see markets gain another 3-5 percent over the next few weeks.   Of course, the critical caveat to my forecast remains President Trump's next tweet on the progress of a trade deal with China. As you know, with such a big “if” on the table, making future forecasts with even a modicum of certainty is impossible.   In last week's column, I enumerated all the scenarios that could play out, but it really comes

Summer is Coming: Be Patient
12:27PM / Friday, June 21, 2019

Happy summer, Berkshireites.

Yes, even though the thermometer says 63 in the middle of the day, the calendar says it's now summer, so break out the tank tops and flip flops. What? You've had them out already? And then put them away? Then brought them back out again?

We've been getting whiplash with this last-spring weather for sure.

But let's get through a cool and dark Friday, and a better weekend awaits. The sun is supposed to shine all day Saturday and Sunday, with a temperatures in the 70s - maybe hitting 80 on Sunday, according to AccuWeather.

While that's not super summer weather, it's good enough to get out and do some yard work or go swimming at one of
