By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:14AM / Thursday, September 03, 2020

One of a dozen public service messages displayed on Spring Street. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A longtime member of the town's Board of Health on Wednesday said he is happy with the lines of communication between the town and Williams College as the school continues to welcome students back to campus for the fall semester.   Dr. Erwin Stuebner also said that while it was unfortunate the college had to change the status of two students to remote learning because of violations of Williams' COVID-19 protocols, it is also encouraging to see the institution take that step.   "[Williams President Maud Mandel] had a communication to the community about that,"

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:32AM / Wednesday, September 02, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The average property owner in Williamstown will see her taxes rise by about $87 in fiscal 2021.    The Select Board on Monday voted to maintain a single tax rate that for this fiscal year will be $17.30 per $1,000 valuation, down 30 cents from last year and 75 cents over the prior two years.    "I will say that typically when values go up, the tax rate goes down as long as the levy is kept to some sort of reasonable increase," said Town Assessor Christopher Lamarre. "And, obviously, this year the increase is very nominal."   The full tax levy will be $17,988, 059 to fund the spending plan passed earlier by voters. This

Markey, Neal Win Democratic Primaries
Staff Reports,
10:13PM / Tuesday, September 01, 2020

Congressman Neal's win in the primary means he will serve another term since there is no challenger in the general election.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — U.S. Sen. Edward Markey and U.S. Rep. Richard Neal have won their primaries by large margins against U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III and Holyoke Mayor Alex Morse, respectively.   The progressive senator had been down in the polls earlier this summer and there had been speculation the storied Kennedy name would aid in putting the 4th Mass District representative into the Senate chamber.    Each racked up a long list of endorsements, with the younger Kennedy getting a late boost from Speaker of the House Nancy

Labor Day: Make Investments Work as Hard as You Do
Submitted by Edward Jones,
08:53AM / Tuesday, September 01, 2020
Labor Day is almost here. Of course, this year, the holiday may have a different impact, given the employment-related stress and disruptions stemming from the coronavirus. Yet, it's good to recognize the value of work and its importance in achieving your life's goals. But if you're going to retire comfortably and reach your other financial objectives, you also need to invest – and your investments need to work as hard as you do.   To help make this happen, you need to know why you're investing in the first place. You likely have a variety of financial goals, including short-term ones – a long vacation, a new car – and long-term ones, such as a

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
11:01PM / Monday, August 31, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Nearly 20 residents on Monday made often impassioned pleas for the town to take action regarding allegations of sexual harassment and racism in the town's Police Department.    The Select Board spent nearly two hours listening to some of the 70 people who dialed in to participate in the remote meeting, with many of those speaking calling for Police Chief Kyle Johnson and Town Manager Jason Hoch to be placed on administrative leave and an independent investigation to be launched.    "I'm asking you to get off your hands and make a statement and do something that's going to bring back the confidence and the security of the women

MCLA Welcomes Students Back, Implements COVID-19 Precautions
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:27AM / Monday, August 31, 2020

MCLA has signs around the campus reminding everyone to mask up and social distance. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Move-in weekend at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts has generally been a celebratory affair as hundreds of students show up with parents and family in tow to prepare for the fall semester.    This year was a low-key affair as the annual event played out over several days with staggered arrivals and mandated COVID-19 testing — another sign of the changes wrought by the novel coronavirus pandemic.    "It looks very different, we've spread out moving over a few more days," said Gina Puc, dean of enrollment management and community

Chilling Snow Storm Draws Apprehensive Avian Migrants
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
08:00PM / Sunday, August 30, 2020

Cylindrical mesh thistle feeder will serve six finches here served at one time. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — If ever there was a snow storm to remember it was that of early May in our Berkshires.   Forewarned by the aggressive weather watchers to inform us of the approaching tempest, one may wonder how our birds reacted to atmospheric signs that animals first perceive. Flocking birds of assorted genera appeared stunned by the daunting freeze that enveloped both the world of people and the spring migrating birds eager to resume nesting and procreation of their progeny.   All night the swirling snow fell in the valleys and foothills, and I felt concern for our cheerful charmers

Letter: Vote For Alex Morse
01:00PM / Sunday, August 30, 2020

To the Editor:

Here is a letter to support voting for Alex Morse in the Sept. 1 Massachusetts primary for the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives' First Congressional District.

As a sometimes songwriter, my recent song, "Ripped," expresses why we should vote Morse on Sept. 1:

Name is Rip Van Winkle.
Just had a little dream.
How long have I been sleeping?
Seems like the same ol’ scene.

Does anyone care
That the world is still at war?
Or have we learned to share?
Do the rich ever grift and hoard?

Name is Rip Van Winkle ...

Which criminals are in office?
Are they the usual losers?
Or have they been locked up
Like the drug pushers?

Name is Rip Van Winkle
