06:53AM / Sunday, May 03, 2020

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Clark Art Institute has announced a revised program for its summer 2020 season, reflecting changes necessitated by its current closure due to the global health crisis and the logistical challenges related to international travel and shipping restrictions.

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:35PM / Saturday, May 02, 2020

NECBL had to weigh the well-being of players and the logistics of trying for a postponed season before making the decision  to cancel.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The directors of the New England Collegiate Baseball League waited as long as they could to hold a vote no one wanted to take and affirm a decision that was largely out of their hands.   "We wanted to be a ray of hope for our communities, but the ramifications of doing so felt reckless," NECBL Commissioner Sean McGrath said on Saturday morning.   Instead, the board Friday had the responsible but unenviable task of informing the league's players, fans and communities that it would not be

01:07AM / Saturday, May 02, 2020

Like other schools in the state, BArT charter school is closed, making it impossible for drama students to put on their spring production. ADAMS, Mass. — When schools were forced to close in March, the drama group at Berkshire Arts and Technology Public Charter School could have thrown in the towel on its spring production.   Instead, it decided to build a better "Mousetrap."   "We did not want to give up on the play and do want to keep the connection going with our cast mates," said John Kozak, a sophomore who has been involved in productions at school since the sixth grade.

However, when is better than bad not good enough for investors?   It appears we have found out this week. It is a known fact that mega-cap, technology companies (the FANG stocks) have been leading the market throughout this rebound.
