Labor Day: You Can Work to Become a Better Investor
Submitted by Edward Jones,
09:09AM / Wednesday, August 29, 2018

On Sept. 3, we observe Labor Day, a holiday to honor all the hard-working people in this country. As one of them, keep in mind that your efforts can have positive results. Famed film producer Samuel Goldwyn once said: "The harder I work, the luckier I get." And this same philosophy can apply to your investing, too – because you can indeed work to become a better investor. 

Consider these steps:

Work to understand your goals and risk tolerance. Self-knowledge is important in all phases of life – and it's certainly essential to you when you invest. For one thing, you need to know your goals. How long do you plan to work? What would you like to do when you

Heated Ending to DA Candidates' Final Debate
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:00PM / Tuesday, August 28, 2018
STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — The buzz after Tuesday afternoon's district attorney debate centers on a last-second comment from candidate Judith Knight.   "Andrea, you have so little experience that you don't even know what you don't know," Knight said in her closing remarks.   Andrea Harrington attempted to chime in, objecting to Knight's statement. The two talked over each other as Harrington claimed Knight's comment was a "misrepresentation" of her experience and that she wouldn't stand for it, as Knight continued on. WAMC News Director Ian Pickus put a halt to Harrington's rebuttal and brought the debate to a

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:53AM / Tuesday, August 28, 2018

The Public Arts Commission heard from supporters of the pillar art on Thursday.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Public Arts Commission is hoping to bring some resolution to the painted-over murals on the Veterans Memorial Bridge through some type of community forum and compromise.    In the meantime, the commission is asking the artists involved in the so-called "pillar art" to hold off on submitting another application to test if the art can be restored.    The controversial overpainting of the public school-led art on the pillars supporting the bridge dates back more than a year. The commission has declined so far to intervene, asking the artists

Letter: Judith Knight Best Fit for District Attorney
Letter to the Editor,
03:00PM / Monday, August 27, 2018

To the Editor:

Andrea Harrington has spunk. But spunk is not enough for the job of district attorney. Ms. Harrington is entering the fray for the Democratic DA nomination with limited knowledge and experience of the workings of the office. This was evident in some of her debate responses, especially those dealing with our county court system. Sliding into the DA position is not the time for on-the-job training.

In her quest for the state Senate seat in 2016, she failed to fully comply with campaign finance law. While the violations were relatively minor for the first-time candidate, and remedial action was taken, she referred to the episode as a learning experience.   In commenting on

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
03:56AM / Monday, August 27, 2018

Nate and his mom, Karen Luczynski, who says her family has stayed in touch with many of the hikers.   CHESHIRE, Mass. — Trail angel Nate "North Star" Luczynski has been handing out trail magic to through-hikers long before the town became an Appalachian Trail Community.    "It is just important to help other people and I really started doing it one day because I was bored," Nate, age 11, said. "I went out to talk to hikers and now it is kind of a thing."   This was three years ago and what began as something different to do on a mid-summer day has turned into almost a ritual.   Almost every day, Nate makes his way down

Hidden Bio-Gem Discovered at Mountain Meadow
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
05:22PM / Sunday, August 26, 2018

Another image of the northern pearly eye found at Mountain Meadows and enhanced by Erik Hansen. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As I walked up the grassy trail to Mountain Meadow Preserve, I was soon in for a big surprise.   Following a zigzag erratic flight of what looked like a common little wood satyr, a closer look when it roosted on a blade of grass before I could close the shutter, what flew off turns out to be a heretofore unlisted satyrid for Mountain Meadow, the multi-Argus-eyed northern pearly eye.   Enodia anthedon is hard enough to find on Cape Cod, my former home for more than 30 years, let alone here in the Berkshires.   Watch carefully the sylvan fringe where

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Jake Rand was roughed up for four runs in the first inning of Sunday’s Berkshire Adult Baseball League championship game.   In the second, he faced runners on second and third with one out and the heart of Housatonic’s lineup coming to the plate.   And then, Rand got to work.   The Taconic High grad struck out the next two men he faced to start a run of 15 straight outs in leading the Cornerstone 90s to a 6-4, come-from-behind win to clinch the BABL 20-year-old division title for the second straight season.   “It was just loosening up and bearing down,” Rand said. “Having fun, ultimately.
