By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:53AM / Monday, July 16, 2018

The professors keep things light and entertaining.  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — It was storytime this past week at Williams College.   But the rising fifth- and sixth-graders at the college's Summer Science Lab were not being told stories.

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:18PM / Saturday, July 14, 2018

Some are calling for a whole new board of trustees to take over at the museum. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Tom Patti considered it a compliment to have his art in the same building as Norman Rockwell and Alexander Calder.   The Berkshire Museum had commissioned his work at the entrance, the foyer, and in three other locations. But now, Patti doesn't feel that the museum values local artists.   "I felt a part of the original mission of the museum and its responsibility to the community. I think that's changed dramatically. It was something very special to the region, not just in Pittsfield," Patti said. "It took over 100 years to invest in the museum and

A small electrically-powered motor is attached to the crank. GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Berkshire Bike and Board is finding a burgeoning market in e-bikes.   Electronic bicycles have been in existence for more than a decade but only recently has the technology begun to take hold in the Berkshires.   The bicycles are just like traditional bikes and made by traditional bike manufacturers. But they come with a small battery-powered motor attached to the crank to assist with the peddling.   "There are no throttles. You have to pedal to make them go.
