DALTON, Mass. -- The Berkshire Force 10-and-under team Sunday scored 14 runs in the bottom of the first en route to a forfeit win in the title game of the 10th annual Dalton CRA Softball Tournament.   Mia DeJesus earned a perfect game of sorts, striking out the side in the top of the first.   After the Force rolled to its big inning in the bottom of the frame, its opponents from Latham, N.Y., threw in the towel and went home.   A.J. Pelkey and Madison Barber each had a pair of hits in the tournament-winning rally.   Earlier in the day, Pelkey hit a two-run homer in the Force' 8-0 win over Chatham, N.Y., to get to the title game.   Sunday's tournament win was

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:24PM / Friday, July 19, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Robert Giardini wants to get art on people's walls.    That's one of the inspirations for his pop-up Media Gallery that opened during the season's first DownStreet Art event last month.    Located at 70 Main St., the walls of the former Radio Shack store in the L-shaped mall that once displayed electronics have proved a perfect setting for hanging a variety of artworks from both local and Philadelphia artists.   "We've got about, I think 12 or 13 different artists here," Giardini said not long after opening. "Some photographers, we have printmakers, a couple painters. We got some letterpress people.

The Independent Investor: Paid Family & Medical Leave Overdue
By Bill Schmick,
04:28PM / Thursday, July 18, 2019
Paid family and medical leave are long-overdue in this country   What do the United States, Papua New Guinea and Oman have in common? Those are the only three countries in the world that do not legally obligate employers or taxpayers to pay for maternity leave.   Many American businesspeople will hide behind a knee-jerk response to the above statement: "We are a free-market society," they will argue, "and paid leave is paramount to just another form of socialism."   Good try, but that old argument is no longer based in facts. Free markets have given way to corporate socialism in this country, while corporations are now legally considered to have the same

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:37AM / Thursday, July 18, 2019
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — After hearing widespread concern about potential health impacts, the Prudential Committee voted unanimously Wednesday to rescind a decision it made this winter to have LED bulbs installed in the town's street lamps.   The committee, which oversees the Fire District, at its monthly meeting decided to back out of an agreement with National Grid to swap out the current incandescent fixtures with light-emitting diodes that have bulbs that burn at 4,000 degrees Kelvin.   The color temperature of the planned bulbs generated considerable discussion at the district's annual meeting in May and again at a recent meeting of the town's

Studs Turkel Makes Music, Caroline Rose Switches Genres and More
By Grace Lichtenstein, Guest Column
11:03AM / Wednesday, July 17, 2019

A wonderful pops and dance week in the Berkshires is upon us. There is an original musical based on Studs Terkel's amazing oral history "Working," folk and pop acts at the highest level, Mark Morris at the Pillow, and twilight jazz on Edith Wharton's terrace. The pluses outweigh the minuses — the main minus being Patti Lupone's cancellation at the Mahaiwe. (She's still recuperating from hip replacement surgery, according to an announcement.) Lupone promises to reschedule.

Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:48AM / Wednesday, July 17, 2019

The word "estate" conjures images of great wealth, which may be one of the reasons so many people don't develop estate plans. After all, they're not rich, so why make the effort? In reality, though, if you have a family, you can probably benefit from estate planning, whatever your asset level. And you may well find that a comprehensive estate plan can help you answer some questions you may find unsettling – or even worrisome.

Here are a few of these questions:

* What will happen to my children? With luck, you (and your co-parent, if you have one) will be alive and well at least until your children reach the age of majority (either 18 or 21, depending on where you
