Williamstown Sign Commission to Begin Review of Bylaw
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:17AM / Tuesday, October 27, 2020

The new signage approved by the Sign Commission for placement on Field Park. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Sign Commission is moving ahead with a plan to bring a revamped bylaw to next year's annual town meeting.   On Thursday, the commission met to deal with a couple of applications and discuss a request from Town Hall to look into a decades-old bylaw that appears to be out of step with current practice.   The commission agreed to designate two of its members to work with town staff and town counsel on a bylaw amendment proposal that the full commission can review and on which it can collect input from the general public.   Community Development Director Andrew

Mount Greylock School Committee: No Need to Gauge Community Support for Fields Project
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:32AM / Monday, October 26, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Without an actionable measure to vote, the Mount Greylock School Committee on Thursday spent nearly an hour talking about the athletic field decision that will be left to the next iteration of the panel.   And three members blocked a proposal to collect data to help inform that decision.   The committee learned Thursday that its architects had not yet given the district a price for drafting new detailed design documents needed for a request for proposals to do upgrades to Mount Greylock's athletic fields.   Those same architects also advised the committee not to review potential "value engineering" deductions from the project or

Butterflies Like it Hot at Mountain Meadow
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
02:26PM / Sunday, October 25, 2020

Likely northern broken dash skipper imbibing nectar at Deptford pink. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Adventuresome butterflies highlight the widespread nectar oases in a special habitat teaming with nectar to meet their spurious flight demands.    Thanks to lucid awareness of the ecological value of so many concurrent species — upwards to 30 — the Trustees of Reservations has saved these 20 acres called Mountain Meadow Preserve. Although seldom seen altogether since they have different flight periods, and separate nectar preferences, a surprising assortment of butterflies can be seen imbibing at the same plant.    What a potpourri! Hardly a dull moment in

Mount Greylock District Enrollment Down, School-Year Start Survey Positive
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:20AM / Saturday, October 24, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School District lost more than 5 percent of its student population from the 2019-20 academic year, but the ones who remain report general satisfaction with the hybrid start to the school year — at least in the general education population.   On a night when the School Committee devoted nearly all of its internal conversation to the question of whether the district should pay for an artificial turf field at the middle-high school, the administration focused its attention on the start of the school year and the annual school improvement plans that are required by state law.   Interim Superintendent Robert Putnam also gave

@theMarket: Politicians Play Cat & Mouse With Investors
By Bill Schmick,
07:58PM / Friday, October 23, 2020
It was a week of will they, or won't they. Both parties claimed to want another stimulus deal done before the election, but the proof is in the pudding and as of Friday, the plate is empty.   Investors may be coming to the conclusion that the latest negotiations between the Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Republican U.S. Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, was simply an election ploy. A way to set up the other side for failure, while making their own position look both caring and, at the same time, blameless. Both sides already knew that the GOP-controlled Senate had no appetite for another bail-out that was any

Williamstown Fire District's Prudential Committee Elects New Chair
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:19AM / Friday, October 23, 2020

Richard Reynolds was elected the new chairman of the Prudential Committee, replacing John  Notsley.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Fire District's Prudential Committee on Wednesday elected Richard Reynolds to be its new chairman.

"Richards is the perfect guy for the job," Ed Briggs said of his colleague.

He has big shoes to fill. Outgoing Chair John Notsley has been involved with the district for 50 years and has chaired the panel that governs the district for several years.

Notsley said that while he will continue his role as a member of the five-person committee, it makes sense for him to step aside from the leadership role.

"I'll be out of

Northern Berkshire United Way Sets Fundraising Goal for 2020-21
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:45PM / Wednesday, October 21, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire United Way kicked off its annual campaign drive on Wednesday under much changed conditions from last year.    Instead of the traditional breakfast at the Williams Inn, the nonprofit agency switched to remote but with still the same confidence that it will raise $490,000 to support its many member agencies.    Even with the prolonged novel coronavirus pandemic, NBUW and its supporting partners came close to last year's goal.    "A year ago at this time, we told you that we wanted to raise $490,000, and we did raise $480,000," said Executive Director Christa Collier. "We just fell a little short
