CDC Releases Guidance for Trick-or-Treating
Staff Reports,
04:01PM / Tuesday, September 22, 2020
Local governments will be taking up the question of Halloween activities in the coming weeks but it looks like traditional trick-or-treating is out this year. And don't think that plastic costume mask is a substitute for the cloth one you're wearing now.    The U.S. Centers for Disease Control released its guidance for the candy-flavored holiday with activity levels of low, moderate and high for transmission of the novel coronavirus that has infected nearly 7 million in the United States and killed more than 200,000.   Not surprisingly, going door to door to have treats handed out is among the riskier activities. The same goes for handing out candy from cars lined up

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
11:08AM / Tuesday, September 22, 2020
BOSTON. — Continuing a pressure campaign against local school districts that began over the summer, the commissioner of education this week sent multiple districts a letter requesting "further information" of those who are beginning the school year with remote instruction.   In a letter dated Friday, Jeffrey C. Riley told more than a dozen districts, including Pittsfield Public Schools, Hoosac Valley Regional and the Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School, that they have "very low COVID-19 transmission" and that he is "concerned" that their school committees have elected to keep most students remote to start the academic

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:48AM / Monday, September 21, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Fire District has signed a contract for the purchase of a tanker truck that was approved at this year's annual district meeting.   Chief Craig Pedercini on Wednesday reported to the Prudential Committee that the district received one bid for the truck, and it accepted the proposal from New England Fire Equipment and Apparatus for a purchase price of $366,987, just a hair under the price tag that district voters approved in July.   "We appropriated $380,000," Chair John Notsley noted. "There's a little leftover, which I understand will go to providing the vehicle with radios and other miscellaneous equipment."   The

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
07:27PM / Saturday, September 19, 2020
DALTON, Mass. -- Zach Archambault hit a grand slam to center field and pitched a strong inning of relief to close out a 14-4, five inning win for Wahconah against Mount Greylock in Babe Ruth baseball on Saturday at Pine Grove Park.   Archambault gave the hosts a double-digit lead in the bottom of the third.   After Lucas Wildrick, Colin Mackie and Drew Wendling each worked a walk, Archambault blasted a one-out homer that cleared the fence and made it 13-2.   It was 14-2 going to the top of the fifth, but the Mounties mounted a rally.   Oscar Low and Josh Polumbo each walked ahead of Dylan Harrison's RBI single. After Jake Gitterman walked to load the bases, Wahconah

Q&A: Pothier Tickled Pink To Still Be Wearing Blue
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
07:00PM / Saturday, September 19, 2020
DALTON, Mass. — After 3,000 games and tens of thousands of judgment calls, Rich Pothier is a fixture on Berkshire County baseball diamonds and a walking advertisement for the recruitment of young umpires.   Moments before stepping behind the plate for his milestone 3,000th career game on Saturday, Pothier sounded as enthusiastic as ever and not the least surprised that career has lasted this long.   "Strangely enough, yes," Pothier said when asked whether he thought he would be umpiring well into his fifth decade. "Because I've loved it right from the first day I did it. I could envision myself doing it.   "I didn't have any talent as a

Soares' Celebrity Golf Event to Benefit Veterans Grows in Second Year
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
05:22AM / Saturday, September 19, 2020
MASHPEE, Mass. — With more sponsors, more celebrities, more than double the number of golfers and a bigger venue, the second annual Wayne Soares Celebrity Golf Tournament to Benefit Homeless & Disabled Veterans promises to build on the success it enjoyed in year one.   But there is one thing Soares will miss from 2019's inaugural event.   "We won't be having a post-tournament reception," Soares said, noting one of the concessions that organizers have made to the COVID-19 pandemic. "I'm really bummed out because last year, we recognized two World War II vets, and they received a thunderous ovation for two or three minutes.   "Gen.

Letter: Police at Williamstown Elementary
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Friday, September 18, 2020

To the Editor:

The Williamstown DIversity, Inclusion and Racial Equity (DIRE) committee is certainly living up to its acronymic nickname and is itself in serious danger of becoming dire. The committee, which ironically lacks diversity in its membership, has engaged in mischaracterization of the entire Williamstown Police Department and has shown a lack of respect for due process. But now it has seemingly taken a stance that would be ludicrous were it not downright dangerous. I am referring to its statements in protest of a police presence on school grounds.

When it came time for us to enroll our, non-Caucasian child at Williamstown Elementary School, I was relieved to see police on duty

@theMarket: Investors Face a Rollercoaster Ride
By Bill Schmick,
03:56PM / Friday, September 18, 2020
Volatility returned to the stock market this week as the level of uncertainty increased on several fronts. Unfortunately, there won't be any definitive answers to what concerns investors for at least two months.   It is September, after all, and this month is notorious for inflicting pain on investors. Historically, October is not much better, and in a presidential election year it can be worse. While the financial media will provide their thoughts on just why stocks drop or rise on any given day, it is not much use to you.   The real reason for "why" will only be known after the fact. This week, the excuse for Thursday's and Friday's decline had to do with
