Letter: Statement of the Lenox Democrats Regarding Smear Job on Alex Morse
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, August 24, 2020

To the Editor:

We, the Lenox Democratic Town Committee, condemn the Massachusetts Democrats and the Massachusetts College Democrats for their deplorable conduct with respect to candidate Alex Morse for Congress. The public may not know that the Massachusetts College Democrats are actually a branch of the Massachusetts Democratic Party and not a separate organization. The Massachusetts Democratic Party is supposed to be neutral regarding Democratic candidates battling it out in primaries. Rather than maintaining this neutrality, the state party allowed the Massachusetts College Democrats to issue a scathing and slanderous rebuke of candidate Alex Morse. Compounding the matter, they allowed

Letter: Neal for Congress
Letter to the Editor,
07:00PM / Sunday, August 23, 2020

To the Editor:

I am urging voters to vote for Richie Neal on Sept. 1. I have known Richie for many years and know that he cares deeply about Western Mass and his constituents. I also know that he has delivered for us time and again.

For those of us who remember what it was like to lose General Electric or Sprague Electric, we remember the shock and the pain that rippled through our community. The Berkshires cannot afford to neglect our major employers or lose jobs again. And make no mistake, jobs in the Berkshires are on the ballot this year.

On one hand, we have Richie Neal who has brought millions of dollars to Berkshire Medical and our health-care systems. On the other hand, we have

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
11:39AM / Saturday, August 22, 2020

ADAMS, Mass. — The Berkshires' Summer Jazz Day Camp was in full swing at Bowe Field this past week.   Playing a musical instrument with others has topped the list of things not allowed during the pandemic, but musical director Richard Boulger found a way to make it happen.   "I thought let's go for it," Boulger said. "So we have been very ambitious...what better time than now to celebrate life with music."   Wind instruments require the player to blow air through the instrument creating spit. It is also impossible to play while wearing a mask. This is not optimal during a pandemic so the camp, that is typically held at Hoosac Valley High
