In July 2016, Greylock Federal Credit Union introduced a new debit card featuring the Lee High School Wildcats logo and school colors. Since then, every time a credit union member signed up for a Wildcats debit card, Greylock made a donation to Lee High School, generating $2,130 for the school.

Lee Middle and High School Principal Gregg M. Brighenti said the funds have been used to purchase furniture for the library, to fund students who couldn't afford school trips, to pay for two dinners the students served to senior citizens, and to buy a small cookie oven for the Lee High School booster clubs to use at games as a fundraiser for their programs.

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:51AM / Friday, September 07, 2018

City Council Vice President John Krol was particularly excited with the Williamstown numbers when they came in. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — When Andrea Harrington entered the district attorney's race, she knew she could do it. She fully expected to win the race.   She didn't think she was an underdog, but she was.    "I didn't realize how improbable my winning was until I actually won," Harrington said on Thursday.   Harrington entered the race in March after former District Attorney David Capeless had maneuvered to place Paul Caccaviello into the office. Caccaviello had strong support from the local business community and many well-established

'Operation Finale': Crime & Punishment
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
01:44PM / Thursday, September 06, 2018
Director Chris Weitz's "Operation Finale," a tension-filled historical drama about the Israeli Mossad's 1960 capture of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Buenos Aires, reminded me of a turning point.   In my house when I was little, you didn't hear the actual word Holocaust. More often, the tragedy that had annihilated half of my family was referred to, in hushed tones, in terms of Hitler: before Hitler, during Hitler and after Hitler. Before was good, a seeming Heaven on Earth that maybe only we children would one day again realize. It was the unspoken hope.   But word that Eichmann, the architect of the Final Solution, had been captured, seemed to change

Defense attorney David Hoose speaks outside the courthouse on Wednesday after Alex Ciccolo's sentencing.  SPRINGFIELD, Mass. — Three years and two months after an arrest that eventually led to charges of violating federal terrorism statutes, an Adams man has agreed to begin serving a 20-year sentence and a lifetime of supervised release.   Alexander Ciccolo appeared Wednesday afternoon before Judge Mark G. Mastroianni in U.S. District Court, but the now-convicted terrorist said little in a 47-minute hearing, only speaking up to answer direct questions from the judge.   Mastroianni accepted the sentencing recommendation agreed to in advance by the government

Museum of Dog Planning Move to Larger Quarters in Pittsfield
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
12:16PM / Wednesday, September 05, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Museum of Dog needs a bigger doghouse.   Owner David York had plans to rehabilitate the former Quinn's Paint & Wallpaper building at the corner of Canal and Union streets but now says the historic building isn't large enough for his collection of dog artifacts and art — and to do the programming he's planning.    "We are averaging over 800 visitors per week and we are out of room," York wrote in an email about putting the building on the market. "People are driving 2 to 3 hours for experiences at Museum of Dog with their dogs."   York opened his collection in the 8,000-square-foot building earlier

Consider Financial Gifts for Your Grandchildren
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:22AM / Wednesday, September 05, 2018

National Grandparents Day is observed on Sept. 9. If you're a grandparent, you may get some gifts or cards – or maybe even a phone call! But you might feel that it's better to give than to receive, especially when it comes to your grandchildren. And you can make a real difference in their lives by making a financial gift for their future. 

For starters, think about your grandchildren's education. If college or some type of vocational school is in their future, you may want to help them meet some of the costs, which can be considerable. One common education-savings vehicle is a 529 savings plan. With this plan, earnings on withdrawals are tax free, provided they are

12:44AM / Wednesday, September 05, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The local district attorney's race was the hottest ticket in Tuesday's primary but there were plenty of other races on the ballots for both parties.    On the Democratic side, Jay Gonzalez outpolled Bob Massie by nearly double to move onto the general election. A former administrator under Gov. Deval Patrick, he'll face popular Republican Gov. Charlie Baker, who's pursuing a third term.    For lieutenant governor, Quentin Palfrey bested Jimmy Tingle to win the nomination with nearly 60 percent of the vote. Palfrey's been in the Berkshires fairly frequently over the past months.    William Galvin easily swept
