By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Monday, August 13, 2018
  DALTON, Mass. — The state Legislature relaxed a bit in the early hours of Aug. 1 as the formal legislative session was ready to close.   But, wait, wait. State Rep. Paul Mark had one more bill -- a land taking for the town of Northfield intended to help local farmers.   "I was able to hold the House and the Senate open until after 1 in the morning on the last day of the session because it was an important bill. It had to be done before we adjourned," Mark said, joking about the change in his popularity among legislators as that night waned.   The Peru Democrat is wrapping up his fourth term in the House of Representative. He said lawmakers tackled a

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
10:14AM / Sunday, August 12, 2018
This is the third in a series of interviews with the Berkshire delegation on legislative actions during this past session of the General Court. Here are interviews with state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier and state Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli.   NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — State Rep. John Barrett III said he is of the mindset of at least making a little bit of progress at a time.   That's why he is disappointed there couldn't be some consensus at the State House on education and health care. Neither of those bills ultimately passed the Legislature and Barrett said he wished at least something could have been done on each topic and then continued next

By Tammy Daniels,
09:16PM / Saturday, August 11, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Smoking materials are believed to be the cause of a fire at the American Legion on Saturday night that forced the closure of the club.    A fire was reported as being in the walls of the American Legion Drive structure shortly after 8 p.m. on Saturday.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
07:56PM / Saturday, August 11, 2018

Shirley Davis with state Sen. Adam Hinds and state Rep. John Barrett III. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Sometimes it really does take a village to make something happen.   Especially if that village also includes an internationally acclaimed museum, a multinational investment banker and, most importantly, a very vocal and civic-minded resident seeking to ensure the future of her neighborhood.    And so the latest coup for Shirley Davis, founder of the United Neighborhood Organization, was Saturday's celebration on the opening of the expanded UNO Park.    The plot next to the UNO Community Center on River Street is largely complete and includes seating, a

@theMarket: Will Stocks Break Out or Break Down?
By Bill Schmick,
05:23PM / Friday, August 10, 2018
The S&P 500 index is within a hair's breadth of breaking out. This week we topped 2,850, which we haven't done since March. The record high for the index in January was 2,872.   Can we top that?   The S&P 500 Index traded within 0.5 percent of its record high this week. If we can close and hold a new high, it will be the 18th time the benchmark index has closed at a new all-time high after going six months without one. Statistically speaking, the odds of doing so are against us. Normally, if we use historical data, it should take the index another year before we reach a new high, but there is nothing normal about the environment we live in today.   Last week,

'Christopher Robin': What the World Needs Now
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
02:32PM / Friday, August 10, 2018
Watching director Marc Forster's delightfully sweet and optimistic "Christopher Robin," wherein the title character now all grown up and in a funk reunites with Winnie the Pooh, his inspiring, childhood pal, my mind wandered. Not because the film wasn't absorbingly influential, but because it was. There I was, back on Dewey Street in Newark, in front of David Stein's house, where I found a dime and screamed of my bonanza, only to be assailed by Mrs. Stein, who claimed it was the dime David had lost. But that's OK.   Arriving in front of the six-family house at 61 Dewey, crying about my fortune so quickly won and lost, there stood my Mom, as if a sixth sense
