By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
04:11AM / Friday, July 30, 2021
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Health Systems is urging unvaccinated residents to get vaccinated for the good of themselves and others after seeing a rise in COVID-19 cases over the past weeks.    Chief Medical Officer Dr. James Lederer Jr. is encouraging the public to remember that the vaccines are designed to prevent severe illness and death from the virus.   "The thing that we like to stress is that, when you consider our most populated group of unvaccinated are the 20- to 29-year-olds, think about how many people in that age range have young children," he said.   "They're putting not only themselves at risk, but their children at risk by not

Williams' Kirshe, American Ruggers Come Back for Win
Williams Sports Information,
11:22PM / Thursday, July 29, 2021
TOKYO, Japan – Williams College alum Kristi Kirshe and the U.S. women's ruby 7s Friday overcame a 12-point deficit to earn a 14-12 win over Australia.   In the first half Australia managed to keep the USA bottled up inside its own 22 and that created a short try opportunity for the Aussies. Australia took a 7-0 lead into halftime. Early in the second half, the Aussies scored again, but this time the conversion failed and Australia led 12-0.   The remainder of the second half was a much different story as the USA was able to open up its passing game and use their size advantage to climb back into the contest.   Cheta Emba powered her way in for a try with 4:09

The Retired Investor: Olympic Price Tag Breaks Records
By Bill Schmick,
04:39PM / Thursday, July 29, 2021
After the Olympic Games conclude on Aug. 8, Japan will still be tallying the final cost of hosting the games. Indications are that the final price tag could be more than $20 billion.   Was it worth it?   The most recent polling data suggest the answer is a resounding "no," at least as far as the Japanese are concerned. Over 83 percent of the people polled, who live in Japan, believe the Olympics should not have taken place this week. To the Japanese, it is not just the expense of the games, but the holding of this event while the country is in the midst of a resurgence in the Delta variant of the coronavirus. Many fear the games will cause a "super spreader"

Berkshire DA: Up to Towns to Handle Officers on 'Brady List'
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:21AM / Wednesday, July 28, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — If Select Board members hoped the Berkshire County district attorney would offer direction on how the town should deal with the impact of having a police officer on her office's "Brady list," they were very disappointed.   Twice during an hourlong presentation at Monday's Select Board meeting, District Attorney Andrea Harrington said it was not her office's place to tell towns how to respond when the county's prosecutor decides one of the municipality's law enforcement officers has a history that needs to be revealed to defense attorneys or, worse, that an officer's history is so concerning that he or she cannot be used as a
