Berkshire Mall Closes to Shoppers - Again
08:58PM / Thursday, July 26, 2018

A hand-lettered sign on the door of the Berkshire Mall on Thursday afternoon.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The latest in a series of intermittent closures had the Berkshire Mall closed to commerce on Thursday.

The Regal Cinema remained open for its regular schedule of shows. A barricade consisting of a fence and upturned tables from the food court prevented people entering to go to the movies from venturing into the food court and beyond.

At Target, the large gate was down over the department store’s mall entrance.

The manager on duty at Target just after 4 p.m. on Thursday said he did not know when the store received word that the mall would be closing for the day, and he did not

'Three Identical Strangers': Relatively Horrifying
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
04:18PM / Thursday, July 26, 2018
You don't have to be Jewish to lament "Oy, yoy, yoy" after seeing director Tim Wardle's shocking documentary, "Three Identical Strangers." After being presented a series of outlandish and disturbing disclosures about the title triplets separated at birth, adopted by three separate families and who are reunited at age 19, you'll warm up for that final assessment by first issuing several "Holy Cows," a few "Yipes" and perhaps a couple good old-fashioned "Wows."   Unaware of, or having forgotten about, the celebrity that Eddy Galland, David Kellman and Robert Shafran enjoyed when they discovered each other in the early 1980s, I

Downpours Will Continue to Sprinkle Berkshires Over Next Week
By Matt McGrory, Special to iBerkshires
10:14PM / Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Blue skies peek out from between dark clouds Wednesday afternoon.

Do you need an umbrella, or do you need sunglasses? Lately it seems in Berkshire County, you need both every time you leave the house.

As anyone who has grown up in the Berkshires is aware, the county’s climate is prone to violently fluctuate from one extreme to another over the course of the seasons - and even over the course of the day. 

This recent weather pattern has shown that to be true.

Every day this week, sunshine has peeked in and out around heavy downpours, while temperatures have been high and humidity has been oppressive. Will that pattern continue?

According to weather.com, over the next two weeks,

'West Side Story' will be shown at Tanglewood on Saturday night, accompanied live by the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

Musical theater thrives in the region this week — on stage and on film. It might require a drive, but you can hear country/western music, Bernstein and great stuff for children in the coming days ... or catch up with nudity that began 50 years ago and caused a sensation on Broadway.

 

Tanglewood

The most famous work by Leonard Bernstein, whose centennial is being celebrated all summer worldwide, is, of course, "West Side Story." At the Shed on Saturday night at 8 p.m., Tanglewood presents the remastered movie of this iconic musical, on big

Where You Live as Retiree Can Affect Financial Strategies
11:54AM / Wednesday, July 25, 2018

Upon retiring, many people relocate to enjoy a more favorable climate, or to be closer to grown children, or to live in an area they have visited and enjoyed. If you, too, are thinking of moving someday, you will want to study possible locations, but you also need to be aware that where you eventually decide to live can greatly affect your savings and investment strategies – both now and during your retirement.

Here are some relocation costs to consider:

Housing: Not surprisingly, the larger the city, the more expensive the housing is likely to be. Also, locations near an ocean or the mountains tend to be more costly. But the type of housing you select – house, apartment or

09:49PM / Tuesday, July 24, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Rivalry is the essence of high school sports.   And a little friendly rivalry between teammates can go a long way.   So when Pittsfield High’s Carter Matthews followed Taconic graduate Jake Flynn in the rotation for Tuesday’s American Legion District Championship playoff game, their Post 68 coach was not above stoking their rivalry.   “Carter’s one of our biggest competitors,” Pat Bassi said. “I told him, kiddingly, before the game, ‘Are you going to try to match Jake from last night?’ He said, ‘I’m going to try my best coach,’ and he did.’ “   On the heels of Flynn’s

Sen. Warren's Town Hall Attracts More Than A Thousand In Great Barrington
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:02AM / Monday, July 23, 2018

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren promised to "keep fighting." GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. - U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is one of the most polarizing senators in the country.    Democrats love her and that was shown on Sunday when more than 1,000 people stood in line, some hours ahead of time, to hear her speak at the Mahaiwe Performance Arts Center.   Republicans hate her and that was shown by the counter-protest being held just outside those doors.   But Warren seems to operate comfortably in that position as for more than an hour, in a speech and question and answers from the audience, she focused on what she sees as the fundamental differences between the two
