Biz Briefs: BerkShares Looking For 'Ambassadors'
04:24PM / Monday, July 24, 2017

Getting the word out: BerkShares has received a grant from the New England Grassroots Environment Fund of Newmarket, N.H., to launch a new initiative called BerkShares Ambassadors. Last summer all seven branches of Adams Community Bank plus the Pittsfield branch of Lee Bank became BerkShares exchange points. This laid the groundwork for BerkShares activity in central and northern Berkshire County. However, the organization realized that they still need people "pounding the pavement" in order to really spread the word.

Contemplating this question, BerkShares board member Michael Tesoro spotted the opportunity to create a powerful experience for local young people that would lead

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Monday, July 24, 2017
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — School Committee Chairwoman Regina DiLego participated in 32 meetings of the Berkshire County Educational Task Force over the past two years.   And it was exhausting. But as the group voted last Saturday to recommend a single school district for all of Berkshire County, she's become "re-energized."   "I'm really excited about it all. I think we can do something for our kids," DiLego said.   DiLego said she was somewhat surprised by the vote. She was expecting the group to come to the conclusion of recommending three separate districts. But, the more discussion the group had and the more issues arose with that, DiLego

'The Big Sick': Has a Healthy Outlook
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:23PM / Friday, July 21, 2017
Director Michael Showalter's "The Big Sick," based on Pakistani-born comedian/actor Kumail Nanjiani's real-life story, is often hilarious proof that in jest there is truth. While gleefully verifying that in dedicated hands the classical romantic comedy remains a viable entertainment, this convivial foray into whether or not love conquers all also asserts a humanistic message that is of late egregiously absent from our national consciousness. Nanjiani's tale sagely solicits art to fill this vacuum.   On the surface it plays rather simply. Kumail, who Ubers for a living when he's not trying to "kill" the audience at a Chicago comedy club, one night
