BRPC Urges Single Environmental Report to Move Scenic Rail Project Along
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Friday, December 02, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Because of all of the work done already to bring the Berkshire Scenic Railway to Hoosac Street in Adams, BRPC says only one environmental review is needed.   The Berkshire Scenic Railway is already operating on tracks between Crowley Avenue in North Adams to Renfrew Street in Adams and plans have been to continue that all the way to Hoosac Street, less than a mile away. The initial round of funding did not support the extension but the project won a $2.6 million MassWorks grant last month to complete the line.   The rail line run will run on a pre-existing bed next to the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail that has already been built out on the same right of way.

'Moonlight': Illuminating
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:22PM / Thursday, December 01, 2016

The DNA of everything that is wrong, sad and perplexing about race relations in the U.S. is poetically discerned and illuminated in filmmaker Barry Jenkins' Oscar-worthy "Moonlight." Jenkins ingeniously utilizes the low-budget, art house look of his sociologically profound film about a young black man's journey in ghettoized America to personalize the tale without the least bit of affectation. It is storytelling in our best, lyrical tradition, ripping open barely sealed wounds in its engrossing proof that there's nothing like the real truth to get your attention.

In the slums of Miami, in an indeterminate near-past that implies the infinite stagnancy of such

Pittsfield Super Tracking Impacts of Federal Education Act
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:41AM / Thursday, December 01, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Superintendent Jason McCandless said he is watching closely what the federal replacement to No Child Left Behind will ultimately mean for the district.   Last year, the federal government adopted the Every Student Succeeds Act that was signed into law on Dec. 10. The program replaces No Child Left Behind but it does retain some of those provisions.   When it comes to the local level, the largest changes would be regarding the ranking system.   "We continue in Massachusetts to work through was ESSA actually means for us," McCandless said told the School Committee Wednesday night.   The act does continue to keep standardized testing,

Everyone Benefits When You Make Charitable Gifts
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:27AM / Wednesday, November 30, 2016

Now that we are in the heart of the holiday season, you may be thinking about ways you can put your money where your heart is. Specifically, you might be pondering which groups you should support with charitable gifts. And as long as you choose groups that meet the right criteria, your generosity can also be rewarding to you, in the form of tax benefits.

To begin with, you'll want to make sure you are giving to a reputable charity. That means you'll need to ask some questions. How does a group measure its effectiveness? Is it devoting as much of its contributions as possible to the actual work of the organization, or is it spending too much money on administrative costs?
