SVMC's outpatient and inpatient surgeries and diagnostic services, like those for imaging and laboratory work, have resumed with enhanced safety protocols per the directive of Gov. Phil Scott. The health system's emergency department, ExpressCare, emergency surgical services, and most of its primary and

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
07:37AM / Sunday, May 31, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Although most of the Appalachian Trail is still open, hikers are asked to practice common sense during the pandemic while on the trail or to just stay home.   COVID-19 has challenged people to find new ways to stay active while practicing social distancing and local trail volunteer Cosmo Catalano, Jr said although folks are encouraged to stay home, common sense needs to be used to maintain social distancing.    "The AT, along with other trails on public lands provides an important resource for people to get outdoors in a healthy way," he said.

BArT Grad: 2020 Not a Dream Year, Not 'a Freak Show'
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:26PM / Saturday, May 30, 2020
ADAMS,  Mass. — At a time when most are thinking of limitless potential and endless possibilities, BArT senior Will Schrade invited his classmates to embrace mediocrity.   Perhaps not forever, but at this particular moment, as the class of 2020 huddled around their computer screens in quarantine instead of gathering in a gymnasium bursting to capacity, the concept of "good enough" has a certain appeal, Schrade argued.   He was one of four Berkshire Arts and Technology Charter Public School students to provide "senior reflections" during Saturday's hourlong graduation exercises, the first virtual high school graduation in Berkshire

08:22AM / Saturday, May 30, 2020

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Although this year's MCLA Innovation & Entrepreneurship Challenge, held May 4-8, was a virtual affair, the college community still came together to view and vote for the three finalists' pitches.

The finalists, all seniors who pitched their business ideas via video, were David Flight, Kimberly Granito and Sierra Lamonde. The students were coached through a series of deliverables — determining the solution to the problem, developing a budget and business plan as the roadmap for the project or business, and presenting before a panel of judges.

BCC Graduates Recognized in Remote Commencement
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
07:03PM / Friday, May 29, 2020

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Any other year, the graduates of Berkshire Community College and their friends and families would be filling The Shed at Tanglewood in Lenox.

  But instead of taking the stage, speakers stood alone in front of a backdrop. And instead of being handed their certificates and diplomas, the more than 200 graduates' names were read as their pictures were shown.    What didn't change was the ceremony's broadcast on Pittsfield Community Television, allowing at least a virtual coming together of the BCC community to mark their significant accomplishments.   President Ellen Kennedy reminded those watching how commencement celebrates not just

Crane Stationery Leaving North Adams for New York
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:09PM / Friday, May 29, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Crane Stationery is pulling up stakes after more than 200 years making paper in the Berkshires.    In a statement released Friday afternoon, company officials said they had made the "difficult decision" to shift operations to parent company Mohawk Fine Papers in Cohoes, N.Y.   The news isn't a surprise: Crane announced a month ago it would be laying off nearly its entire workforce of more than 200 by June 19.   "For almost 220 years, Crane has made its home in the Berkshires. It's an indelible part of our history and our culture, and an enormous point of pride," said Thomas O'Connor, CEO of Mohawk in a statement.

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
02:20AM / Friday, May 29, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Licensing Board extended the hours that the Proprietor's Lodge can serve alcohol on its patios to help accommodate social distancing while dining.   The board acted Wednesday on a request from the lodge's owner Eric Taylor, despite concern from the neighborhood, that would provide the restaurant a lifeline during the reopening process.   "This is a unique situation and Mr. Taylor is in a difficult situation much like other restaurants across the state," Chairman Thomas Campoli said. "The neighbors have a legitimate point about this but I believe there ought to be some accommodation to this restaurant and I think we have to view

The Independent Investor: The Culling of America
By Bill Schmick,
04:45PM / Thursday, May 28, 2020
As the death toll attributed to the coronavirus breached 100,000 in the Unites States this week, among the hardest hit Americans are those in the elderly population. The numbers simply illustrate what we all know. Eighty percent of the known fatalities were at least 65 years old. As such, the virus appears to be very good at selective slaughter.   As one of those who are most susceptible to dying from this virus, I have done a lot of soul searching over our future.  Today, I will begin to share some of these thoughts. Aside from the human loss, for example, what potential impact will this pandemic have on health care costs in the future?   Today, according to the most recent
