01:34AM / Monday, February 22, 2016

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Select Board last week found a new town accountant.

Donna Estes was selected for the 10-hour post after meeting town officials most important criteria: municipal experience.

Estes, currently town accountant for Williamstown, more than fit the bill.

"We're getting someone who's already doing what we're looking for," said Select Board member William Schrade.

Officials have been concerned over getting someone with strong municipal experience to prevent any backsliding of the town's financial position. It had recovered under the hand of former Town Accountant David Fierro, who resigned last month. Officials interviewed five other

'Goldberger in Oscarland': Digging Deep for the Winners
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Columnist
04:00PM / Thursday, February 18, 2016

I peered out my window. It was Oscar picking time. But no help seemed forthcoming. Over the years I've depended on the kindness of strangers to help make my selections. Last year the politically innocent squirrels who call my backyard home (a fat bunch since named The Goldberger Squirrels) made the treacherous journey across an angrily blockaded George Washington Bridge to deliver a packet containing the "winners" names.

Previous years saw me kidnapped by aliens and spirited away to their planet where, Elvis, alive and in exile, supplied the cherished picks, graciously served up with a peanut butter and banana sandwich.

However, with no such succor made available this

The Independent Investor: OPEC's Poker Game
By Bill Schmick,
01:45PM / Thursday, February 18, 2016

The news this week that some OPEC members have at least agreed to talk, and possibly freeze production, had traders covering their oil shorts, sending crude up over 15 percent. But why should simply freezing production at multi-year levels stem oil's price decline?

Naysayers are right when they argue that holding production where it is does not solve the oversupply problem in world energy. At the present rate of production, an additional 330 million barrels of oil (or about 1 million barrels/day) of unneeded oil is flowing onto world markets.

That oversupply has been building for a year or more. It is being stored in spare oil tankers, storage tanks and wherever else suppliers can

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
11:16AM / Thursday, February 18, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Rep. Paul Mark will not run for the open state Senate seat being left vacant by Benjamin B. Downing.   The Peru Democrat has spent the last several weeks considering whether he should take on the sprawling Senate district. On Thursday, he said he didn't want to lose the traction he has gained in the House nor did his family think it was the right position.   "There was an overwhelming outpouring of support from people asking me to run ... But, the person I need the most didn't think it was the right race at the right time," Mark said Thursday morning.    He is in his third term representing the 16 towns of the 2nd
