Symptoms of Summer
09:16AM / Friday, July 20, 2018

Here in the Northeast, we love the sun (when it finally comes out). While soaking up the rays and warm temperatures can feel great, there is a common tendency to overdo it. If you have ever lost track of time and gotten a sunburn or felt dizzy when getting up from your beach chair, you know it's true.

Below are a few quick reminders for enjoying summer without the most common health-related pitfalls.

Pass the water. Dehydration is one of the most common summer health problems, especially among the elderly and athletes. It happens when we don't have enough fluid in our bodies to perform basic functions. While the problem can happen year round, it is more common when the weather is

100th Game Saturday in LaFesta Baseball Exchange
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:37AM / Friday, July 20, 2018
 
One of many newspaper clippings Canales has saved and preserved over the years. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Of the many supporters of the LaFesta Baseball Exchange, none comes up in conversation with co-founder George Canales more than former Boston Mayor Thomas Menino.   So it was particularly concerning to Canales when the five-term mayor was AWOL in the moments leading up to the 2003 game in the North End.   "I said to [Boston's] John Romano, who started the exchange with me, 'Where's Mayor Menino?' " Canales recalled this week. "And he said, 'Don't worry. He'll be here.'   "All of a sudden, an ambulance

'Leave No Trace': Makes Its Mark
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:14PM / Thursday, July 19, 2018
It would be silly not to give a full, 4-popcorn rating to "Leave No Trace," Debra Granik's trenchant, contemporary drama about a PTSD sufferer who lives off the grid in the Portland, Ore., woods with his teenage daughter. However, when movies are this good, there is a tendency on the critic's part to judge them against other superb examples of the filmic art, and to cautiously rein-in the ebullience that can't help accompany the welcome rush of provocative truths. The personal tale is devastating, the larger implications, haunting.   So, when quibbling between a 3 or 3 1/2 and a 4, I invoke the Goldberger Rule of Cinematic Significance to tip the balance: Is the

While demolition goes on outside, work continues on the interior as the $65 million school is being readied to open for classes in September.  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The "cold corridor" is a memory, and soon the rest of the former academic spaces at Mount Greylock Regional School will follow in its wake.   Demolition is well underway at the Cold Spring Road campus, where Holyoke's American Environmental has taken the lead on tearing down the two classroom wings that have been replaced by a three-story addition as part of the school district's $64 million building project.   On Thursday, Superintendent Kimberley Grady and Turner Construction's

By Grace Lichtenstein, Special to iBerkshires
02:09PM / Wednesday, July 18, 2018

Our focus this week shifts to north county — Williamstown and North Adams. While that might require a bit of a drive for those coming from farther south, I believe it will be worth it as you discover a brand new musical and a masterwork that combines elements of folk, rock and classical.
