By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
05:47PM / Thursday, August 31, 2017
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The grateful family of Keith W. Laughlin on Thursday received the bust carved by his longtime friend.   Gail King delivered the sculpture carved by her late niece, Ruth Ellen, to Laughlin's mother, Karin Morandi, at the home of Morandi's daughter, Kris Bona.   "I'm so glad we found you guys," King said.

'Wind River': Opens the Floodgates of Indignation
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
02:09PM / Thursday, August 31, 2017
Writer-director Taylor Sheridan's "Wind River," a murder-mystery inspired by true events, deserves plaudits not only because it is a skilled piece of filmmaking, but also owing to its eye-opening exposé of the disgraceful socioeconomic conditions on Native American reservations.   While the majority of Americans are more or less cognizant of the poverty that wreaks havoc in our urban ghettos, far fewer citizens are familiar with this rural brand of destitution ostensibly swept under the carpet of our national conscience. See it up close and the mind boggles.   Be warned, this is tough viewing. In service to its ugly divulgences, there are few punches pulled.

True pizza lovers like to change up our beloved pie into all kinds of different combinations. We have been unable to live life by pepperoni alone, even though we a lot of us are die-hard pepperoni fans.

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:25AM / Wednesday, August 30, 2017

The memorial for Laughlin that was found with the bust. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Gail King needs your help.   When the North Carolina resident and New England expatriate returned to the area this summer to help clean out the home of the recently deceased Jean Ann King, Gail found among her things a bust sculpted by Jean's daughter, Ruth Ellen King, who died in 2013.   With it was a newspaper clipping with a memorial for the sculpture's apparent subject, Keith W. Laughlin.    And that is where the trail goes cold.   The clipping is not an obituary, which would list survivors, but a poem that only references Laughlin's "Mom, Step Dad,
