  1Berkshire President Jonathan Butler reviews some of the programs the organization has operated the past year. HANCOCK, Mass. — Ben Svenson and Eric Kerns reached back a century to cite a paean to an iconic path that put the Berkshires on the map — and leads to the front door of their own landmark addition.    Svenson and Kerns took turns reading the address given at the official opening of the Mohawk Trail in 1914 as they accepted 1Berkshires' "Putting the Berkshires on the Map" award for Tourists inn and resort on Thursday night.   The essay spoke of rugged beauty, obscure lore, intersections with history, undiscovered hills and

The Independent Investor: India's Bid for More Trade
By Bill Schmick,
05:44PM / Thursday, September 26, 2019
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi is aggressively pushing for a greater share of global trade now that its neighbor to the north (China) is squabbling with the United States. In doing so, India is hoping to regain some economic momentum, kick-start employment, and reverse its slowing economy.   For those readers whose knowledge of India is limited to the next Bollywood musical, India's economy has been in the doldrums. It is still growing at a 5 percent clip, which may sound high to some, but it is at the lowest level in six years. The country's unemployment rate is presently at 8.19 percent, versus 6.27 percent last year.   Despite the poor performance of the

'Downton Abbey': King of the Soap Operas
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
01:46PM / Thursday, September 26, 2019
Director Michael Engler's "Downton Abbey," a feature film continuation of the TV series that eluded me in its entirety during its very successful run, is full up with the stuff of royalty. I shouldn't laugh at the silliness of the outmoded form of government, which is truly my first inclination, big democrat that I am. But I'm reminded that I'm still counting on being invited to the coronation ball and hanging out a bit with the newly invested King Charles, should he yet ascend to the throne.   OK, OK, I still haven't written the letter. I've been putting it off for several decades, but still plan to get to it. It would explain that we are about the

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff

Stephen Murray speaks at Saturday's Voices for Recovery event. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Stephen Murray is tired. In the past five years, the paramedic has responded to more than 100 overdoses.   "Many of my colleagues are burnt out by the constant barrage of substance-related calls," he said. "And I understand how they feel because I'm tired. ...   "I'm tired of seeing people my age die. I'm tired of seeing parents bury their children. I'm tired of seeing kids who lose their parents."   But Murray, a former addict himself, sees overdose reversals as an opportunity.   "Maybe this is rock bottom, maybe waking up and

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The petite fourth-grader made her way up to the microphone.

"When I learned about climate change, I wanted to cry," said June, a fourth-grader at Williamstown Elementary School. "All the animals are going extinct. And it's just terrible."
