By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:14PM / Tuesday, February 06, 2018
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — For four years, the "Baseball in the Berkshires" exhibit has chronicled, preserved and displayed local artifacts of America's pastime.   This month, one of those artifacts is getting the call up to "the show."   Since 2016, the exhibit, now housed at the Berkshire Mall, has displayed a 1957 Brooklyn Dodgers jacket worn by Dalton's Ed Ladley during his playing days.   On Feb. 13, Ladley will donate that piece of history to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, N.Y.   "Two months ago, the Hall of Fame came out with an article talking about the rookie teams the New York teams had in

Lanesborough Officials May Push Mount Greylock District on Tuition Hike
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
02:37AM / Tuesday, February 06, 2018
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — Some town officials are urging the Mount Greylock Transition Committee to hold firm on tuition rates.   Members of the Board of Selectmen and the Finance Committee had fought for years over the price point of tuition and last year finally reach an agreement with school officials.   Last March, the School Committee adopted a policy that set the tuition rate at the per pupil expenditure as set by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education each year. That policy doubled the town's tuition rate from $8,734 to more than $17,000.   But since then, the town voted to expand the district to be one with Mount Greylock Regional and Williamstown

Small Forgotten Hancock Library Spurred Back To Life
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:28PM / Sunday, February 04, 2018

After being elected as a library trustee, Olivia Johnson has dedicated herself to reviving the Taylor Memorial Library. HANCOCK, Mass. — Olivia Johnson loves the role libraries play in a community.    She went to her local library, the Taylor Memorial Library on Main Street, opened the doors and it was musty. The 1925 building retained moisture. The books on the shelves were breaking apart. They were disheveled. And most of them dated back to the 1950s or before.   There wasn't much of a catalog and what was there was out of order or mislabeled. She spun the globe that sat on one of the tables and when it came to a rest, she saw the

Snowfall Predictions: Super Bowl Sunday
06:54PM / Saturday, February 03, 2018
Super Bowl Sunday is sizing up to be more rainy than snowy, but there's a chance of snow showers and sleet early in the week.    The National Weather Service is forecasting some light snow showers Sunday morning with a mix of rain and snow after midnight Sunday. The roads will be slippery so drive with care.    Greylock Snow Day is predicting 2 to 5 inches, on the other hand, with the possibility of school delays on Monday. This may be wishful thinking, as the blog points out. Accuweather shows the chance of up to 3 inches for the northwestern corner of the Berkshires — Williamstown and North Adams.    Monday is expected cold and blustery but the sun

The hospital renovated the inside of the former Berkshire Hematology practice. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Edith King doesn't feel like the hours she spends receiving renal dialysis is a problem.   "This is the greatest place you can come to if you've got kidney problems. I feel like I don't have a kidney problem. I feel like I am just sitting here, visiting with friends, and having a good time. It is just a great place," King said on Friday as she awaited her doctors to start another procedure.   King is one of the 82 patients being served out of the newly opened renal dialysis center on Conte Drive.

@theMarket: Higher Wages Clobber Markets
By Bill Schmick,
04:59PM / Friday, February 02, 2018
@theMarket: Higher Wages Clobber Markets   Gains in a worker's paycheck are supposed to be a good thing, right? It means they can spend more, which contributes to growth in the economy, and maybe have a happier life. If all of that is true, why has the stock market swooned in response to Friday's labor report?   It's simple really. The non-farm payrolls report was another upside surprise. The nation gained 200,000 jobs in January, which is better than the 180,000 we expected. While the official unemployment remained at 4.1 percent for the fourth straight month, it was the growth in wages that surprised the market most.   Hourly wages rose 0.3 percent over the

'Hostiles': Requiem for the Horse Opera
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
02:08PM / Friday, February 02, 2018
You know that lyric from "Home on the Range," where the cowpoke asserts that "seldom is heard a discouraging word?" Well, if you go by the realistic take on the Old West proffered in director/writer Scott Cooper's "Hostiles," the reason no one says anything discouraging is that they're either dead or fighting like crazy to keep from being dead.    While poet Joel Barlow hoped his "Vision of Columbus" (1787) would be our version of "The Iliad," he was premature. There would be 100 more years of conquering the natives before America's character would be formed.   This is a very studied work, contemplative, moody,
