Lanesborough School Chair 'Re-Energized' By Task Force Vote
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Monday, July 24, 2017
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — School Committee Chairwoman Regina DiLego participated in 32 meetings of the Berkshire County Educational Task Force over the past two years.   And it was exhausting. But as the group voted last Saturday to recommend a single school district for all of Berkshire County, she's become "re-energized."   "I'm really excited about it all. I think we can do something for our kids," DiLego said.   DiLego said she was somewhat surprised by the vote. She was expecting the group to come to the conclusion of recommending three separate districts. But, the more discussion the group had and the more issues arose with that, DiLego

Shire City Sessions Returns to Pittsfield on Monday
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
06:04AM / Sunday, July 23, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Shire City Sessions are back.   The weekly concert series takes place over the next three Mondays at the First Street Common. The concerts bring original live music to the Berkshires, and fills up what tends to be an uneventful night of the week.   "There is a little bit of a hole in the cultural scene when it comes to original music," said Alan Bauman, who founded the concert series in 2015 to bring in national and regional music talent to tackle that issue.   It began in the parking lot of the Shire City Sanctuary the first year. Last year, it moved to the Common and worked in tandem with the Shakespeare in the Park, using the same

Zion Lutheran Church Opens 1892 Time Capsule
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:21PM / Saturday, July 22, 2017

The box was found in the northwest corner of the building. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — When the Zion Lutheran Church was built on First Street in 1892, the congregation placed a time capsule in the cornerstone.   And it sat there for 125 years. The Rev. Timothy Weisman knew there was one somewhere in the building's structure, but wasn't sure where.   Seven months ago, the church embarked on a $1.2 million renovation and the mason dug around the northwest corner of the building and found it.   The capsule was placed there on July 13, 1892.   "After a renovation of about seven months, coinciding with the 125th anniversary of the building, we decided to

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
08:12PM / Friday, July 21, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Twenty-four hours after falling victim to a dramatic sixth-inning comeback, the Pittsfield National Little League All-Stars Friday found themselves needing to do the same thing.   But after putting two men on base with two out and a four-run lead, Leominster was able to get the final out on a swinging strike and secure a 6-2 win that ended the Nats’ run in the Major League sectional tournament.   “I said to them, ‘We have the recipe for coming back because we just had it done to us,’ “ Pittsfield NL coach Darren Lee said. “But we weren’t able to execute.”   Cal Lewis and Johnny Crawford each singled around a

'The Big Sick': Has a Healthy Outlook
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:23PM / Friday, July 21, 2017
Director Michael Showalter's "The Big Sick," based on Pakistani-born comedian/actor Kumail Nanjiani's real-life story, is often hilarious proof that in jest there is truth. While gleefully verifying that in dedicated hands the classical romantic comedy remains a viable entertainment, this convivial foray into whether or not love conquers all also asserts a humanistic message that is of late egregiously absent from our national consciousness. Nanjiani's tale sagely solicits art to fill this vacuum.   On the surface it plays rather simply. Kumail, who Ubers for a living when he's not trying to "kill" the audience at a Chicago comedy club, one night
