"For 26 years, the Kids' Place has helped lead these children and their

Adolph Brown chats with a teacher after his presentation at Mount Greylock last Friday. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Between the textbooks, notebooks, gym clothes, lunches and, increasingly, electronics, kids are carrying a lot in their backpacks.   Educators who gathered this month at Mount Greylock Regional School were reminded that those bags are just part of the baggage.   "We all get caught up in this backpack — this is supplies, that's all, it's supplies," Adolph Brown said, holding a bag up in front of the teachers and paraprofessionals gathered in the middle-high school auditorium. "We think the world revolves around it. … This is

@theMarket: Markets Await a Brexit Vote
By Bill Schmick,
10:56AM / Saturday, October 19, 2019
Great Britain's House of Parliament is voting on yet another proposal to exit the European Union this weekend. While Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the President of the European Union, Jean-Claude Juncker, have a tentative agreement, there is no guarantee parliament will vote for it.   In this world of binary events, financial markets are looking at the vote as a black or white outcome. Parliament votes yes and the British pound, world stock markets, and the European Union (EU) celebrates. If, as they have done in the past, the British politicians vote no, then gloom and doom will likely beset the markets.   My own opinion is that a no vote will simply send the various

The Independent Investor: Was There Really a Trade Deal?
By Bill Schmick,
02:52PM / Friday, October 18, 2019
Last Friday a "phase one" trade agreement between the United States and China was announced with great fanfare. The problem is that nothing was written down, nor were the terms agreed upon. In the end, we only have a gentlemen's handshake. Will that be enough?   With the stock market up by over one percent, President Donald Trump spent most of the that day in front of the cameras crowing that China had agreed to buy $40-$50 billion worth of food imports from our nation's farmers. He repeated those numbers over and over, throwing in comments of how famers were going to have to buy bigger tractors to handle the business.   China's Vice Premier Liu He smiled

By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
04:00AM / Friday, October 18, 2019

Kerri Nicoll, associate professor of social work at MCLA, introduces the 'inclusive development' topic at the NBCC meeting on Tuesday.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — In its third forum on the topic of gentrification, the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition flipped the script.

Instead of focusing on what people fear when thinking about the challenges of new community investment, participants in the October forum were asked to instead think about what aspects of "inclusive development" they would like to see.

"It was not a good place to get stuck in our fear," said Kerri Nicoll, associate professor of social work in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology and

Controversial Williamstown Sporting Goods Store Proposal Withdrawn
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:32AM / Friday, October 18, 2019

A proposal to site a sporting goods store on North Hoosac Road has been withdrawn because of vocal opposition.  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Zoning Board of Appeals on Thursday avoided a decision on the most controversial issue it has faced this year.   But it did allow a resident to take advantage of the bylaw that resulted from the most contentious issue that faced another town board in the last 12 months.   Billy Preite withdrew his request for a special permit to operate a sporting goods store on North Hoosac Road, obviating the need for the board to continue a stormy public hearing that began in September.   In a letter to the board, Preite cited the

'Pain & Glory': Regret & Joy
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
01:42PM / Thursday, October 17, 2019
"No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent," said the poet, John Donne. But Antonio Banderas' Salvador Mallo, the famed director whose poetic sensibilities are woven throughout Pedro Almodóvar's expertly crafted "Pain & Glory," sure tries to prove him wrong.   In self-imposed hiatus and exile from his storied career when we meet him, Mallo is an anxious confluence of nostalgia, regret, uncertainty and just a little glimmer of hope that might just be our wishful thinking.   Born into more than humble roots of which we are apprised in beautifully etched flashbacks as Salvador painfully and painstakingly tries

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Community Preschool began sprucing up its new home by hiring local sign maker Lindsay Neathawk, owner of Neathawk Signs and Design, to create a 3D sign for the business.

Neathawk installed the sign late Monday afternoon that features multicolored hand prints from the children as the leaves of a tree poking out of the top. Underneath the name and address "a place to grow" is written. The children's hand prints were taken at the school and Neathawk then scanned them into her design programs to create the sign.
