07:34AM / Sunday, August 13, 2017

William Cameron, second from left, takes issue with the idea of a modified regional supervisory union. DALTON, Mass. — The Berkshire County Education Task Force assessed the fallout from its July 15 vote advocating a single school district for the county and discussed its strategy for explaining that recommendation to school officials, town officials and the public at large.   Nearly a month after acting on the data accumulated in Phase 2 of the task force's multiyear study of the county's education system, the members at Saturday's meeting remained firm in their commitment that a single school district provides the best long-term option for providing

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:54AM / Thursday, August 10, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds is looking to be at the forefront of pushing for criminal justice reform.   The freshman senator from Pittsfield hadn't been in office in the fall when dozens of bills began relating to reform piled into the Legislator nor was he appointed to the judiciary committee. But, he's trying to elbow his way in to advocate for major overhauls of the system.   "It has now been made abundantly clear from both sides of the Legislature that the fall is when we will take on criminal justice reform," Hinds told the local branch of the NAACP on Wednesday when he sought input so he was in "lockstep" with the

By Stephen Dankner, Special to iBerkshires
12:41PM / Wednesday, August 09, 2017

Letter: Turn Off Your Cell Phones During Theater Performances
12:00PM / Wednesday, August 09, 2017

To the editor:

A cell phone stopped the show at Shakespeare & Company. During a particularly intense scene of Lynn Nottage's extraordinary "Intimate Apparel," the amazing actor Nehassaiu deGannes broke the fourth wall but stayed in the rage of her character. She said "Please turn off your cell phone. I can hear it vibrating, and I won't continue until you turn it off." She was scary. A woman in the front row reached into her purse and turned off her phone immediately. The play continued.

DeGannes's words changed the experience of the play for all of us, but far from enough to spoil it. I believe everyone in the audience was on her side. Let's

Of course, "legacy" can mean many things. In the broadest sense, your legacy is how you will be remembered by your loved ones, friends and the communities to which you belong. On a practical level, establishing your legacy means providing your family and the charitable organizations you support with the resources you would like them to have.
