By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:20AM / Saturday, October 24, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School District lost more than 5 percent of its student population from the 2019-20 academic year, but the ones who remain report general satisfaction with the hybrid start to the school year — at least in the general education population.   On a night when the School Committee devoted nearly all of its internal conversation to the question of whether the district should pay for an artificial turf field at the middle-high school, the administration focused its attention on the start of the school year and the annual school improvement plans that are required by state law.   Interim Superintendent Robert Putnam also gave

@theMarket: Politicians Play Cat & Mouse With Investors
By Bill Schmick,
07:58PM / Friday, October 23, 2020
It was a week of will they, or won't they. Both parties claimed to want another stimulus deal done before the election, but the proof is in the pudding and as of Friday, the plate is empty.   Investors may be coming to the conclusion that the latest negotiations between the Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Republican U.S. Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, was simply an election ploy. A way to set up the other side for failure, while making their own position look both caring and, at the same time, blameless. Both sides already knew that the GOP-controlled Senate had no appetite for another bail-out that was any

'My Favorite Year': Vintage Laughs
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
01:44PM / Thursday, October 22, 2020
I wish that I were reviewing one of the several movies about this pox upon our house that are certain to be made when the horror is deep into our rearview mirror. But until that glorious return to normality has us resuming all the simple joys of life we take for granted, like going to the movies, I'll be retro-reviewing and thereby sharing with you the films that I've come to treasure over the years, most of which can probably be retrieved from one of the movie streaming services. It is my fondest hope that I've barely put a dent into this trove when they let the likes of me back into the
