Williamstown to Try Outdoor Dining on Spring Street Again Saturday
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:39AM / Friday, July 10, 2020
  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Despite the vagaries of Mother Nature and the voices of those who raised concerns about the plan, the town plans to temporarily close Spring Street to vehicles the next two Saturday evenings to allow outdoor dining.   The initiative to help downtown restaurants that do not otherwise have outdoor space to set up tables was first tried on June 27.   Although the weather did not entirely cooperate that night, people who did have a chance to take advantage of the opportunity reacted positively on social media.   Organizers also got positive reactions, according to Jane Patton, the chair of the town's Select Board and vice president of the

Congressman Joe Kennedy III asks a question of pastry chef Cynthia Walton as Salvatore Perry looks on.   NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — U.S. Senate candidate Joseph Kennedy used a campaign stop in North Berkshire on Thursday to say that the nation's economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic cannot ignore the creative economy that is a major economic driver in the region.   "We want to have arts and cultural institutions," the 4th Mass congressman said during a tour of the Greylock Works mill revival on State Road (Route 2). "Not only are they critically important to our economy, they're literally integral to our quality of life.   "And the

The Retired Investor: Next Bailout Should Address Job Creation
By Bill Schmick,
04:06PM / Thursday, July 09, 2020
As the COVID-19 virus rages across the nation, Americans are hoping for more assistance from the government on a variety of fronts. So far this month, their hopes have been met with a resounding silence from the White House, although members of Congress are trying to come up with answers that both parties can agree upon. I have a couple of suggestions.    The first round of fiscal and monetary stimulus did a good job in addressing the huge spike in unemployment the country has suffered. While the CARES Act at $2.2 trillion provided $500 billion to distressed industries, almost $350 billion in loans to small businesses and $4100 billion to hospitals, it was the $200 billion in

'The Big Lebowski': When Dudes Abide
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:37PM / Thursday, July 09, 2020

I wish that I were reviewing one of the half-dozen movies certain to be made when this pox upon our house is no more. 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

Targeted COVID-19 Testing Set for 8 At-Risk Communities
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:22AM / Thursday, July 09, 2020
BOSTON — People in Western Massachusetts, and the Berkshires in particular, frequently complain the region is being ignored by a state government headquartered at the other end of the commonwealth.   On Wednesday, Gov. Charlie Baker announced a new program that will impact eight municipalities — none west of I-495.   But this is not the kind of list any town or city wants to make.   Baker and Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito used their daily press briefing to announce that the commonwealth will offer targeted free COVID-19 testing sites in Chelsea, Everett, Fall River, Lawrence, Lowell, Lynn, Marlborough, and New Bedford.   All residents of those communities will be

Baker Pushes Back on Federal Pressure to Open Schools
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com
02:30PM / Wednesday, July 08, 2020
BOSTON -- Gov. Charlie Baker Wednesday said he does not think it “makes sense” for a one-size-fits-all approach to reopening the nation’s public schools but stopped short of directly criticizing a presidential tweet pressuring states to open the schoolhouse doors in the middle of a global pandemic.   Baker was asked in his daily press availability about President Trump’s Tuesday Twitter statement that indicated his administration “May cut off funding if [schools] not open!”   The Republican governor, not for the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic, found himself having to argue against his party’s leader while trying to not get into a
