@theMarket: Will China Be Next?
By Bill Schmick,
10:37AM / Saturday, October 06, 2018
After this week's trade deal between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada, investors are waiting to see if China will now come to the table. What would it take for that to happen?   Mid-term elections could be the trigger. It wouldn't surprise me to see a deal before November — since the polls appear to favor the Democrats. Trump's tariff offensives, while supported by most of his base, are deeply disturbing to those who are feeling the brunt of foreign-trade retaliation.   Farmers, for example, and blue-collar workers in certain steel-related industries, are suffering. Many of them are also part of the 39 percent minority of Americans who support Donald Trump and his

03:35PM / Friday, October 05, 2018

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam Hinds has been appointed to co-chair the Special Commission on Improving Efficiencies in Student Transportation by Senate President Karen E. Spilka.

"That is why I am excited by this opportunity to address such a significant issue that impacts school and municipal budgets, and, ultimately, directs money back into our classrooms."

'Fahrenheit 11/9': It's Worse Than you Think
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:00PM / Friday, October 05, 2018
Walk down almost any street USA and ask 10 people if they know who Mike Pence is. You'd be surprised how few do. But I betcha bunches of them know where Miley Cyrus is playing this Friday night. Such is the complacent folly of a citizenry entirely certain that the Founding Fathers put our democracy on automatic pilot. And therefore, no amount of selfish incursion from greedy forces within should tear us away from munching Fritos and gulping mass quantities of beer while we watch today's version of the gladiators do their best to sustain brain injuries.   But hark, good citizen, there are, alas, true patriots in the land, and not the kind that simply wrap themselves in the flag

The Independent Investor: Estate Planning Is for All of Us
By Bill Schmick,
02:32PM / Friday, October 05, 2018
Here is a trick question. What did Aretha Franklin, Tupac Shakur, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Abraham Lincoln have in common? They are all famous people who died without a will.   In the case of the "Queen of Soul," she died in August leaving $80 million and according to Michigan state law, those assets should eventually be divided up among her four children. In the meantime, the entire estate must go through the probate process, which is both expensive and time-consuming.   Some other famous people who failed to prepare their heirs and beneficiaries for their eventual death are: Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Howard Hughes Sonny Bono, James Brown, Prince, and Michael

01:40PM / Friday, October 05, 2018

Andrea Harrington speaks to supporters at Democratic campaign headquarters on North Street.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Attorney General Maura Healey stressed the importance of voting at the local level during her stop at Democratic campaign headquarters on North Street this past Monday.   "School committee, mayor, Legislature, city council, so many of the policies in our country are determined at the local level and state level," she told one supporter who was asking what she could do to effect change. "Congress is important but don't lose sight of every election mattering."   That includes voting for district attorney as Healey endorsed

Clarksburg School Making Slow Progress on Repairs
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:21AM / Friday, October 05, 2018

The lift on the first floor offers access to the top corridor but not to the cafeteria downstairs. People in adaptive devices have to go outside and down the sidewalk to the back entrance.

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Officials and volunteers are still working out the kinks on an ambitious plan to make necessary renovations to Clarksburg School.

There was a rush of volunteers in the wake of last year's failed school vote but progress has been slow — hampered by lack of funding, bidding procedures and lines of communication between town and school officials.

"The town is the school, the school is the town, it's never going to be successful if it's an us versus

Mangiardi Hat Trick Lifts MCLA Women
09:33PM / Thursday, October 04, 2018
ONEONTA, N.Y. -- Taconic graduate Lauren Mangiardi netted a hat trick and Kate Mancini added a pair of goals as the MCLA women's soccer team cruised past Cobleskill, 6-1, Wednesday.      Mancini opened the scoring in the 18th minute as she scored an unassisted goal for her first of the season. Ten minutes later, Mangiardi collected a Caitlyn Maloney feed and deposited in the goal to make it 2-0. She then connected on a blast from 30 yards out just 25 seconds later to give MCLA (3-7) a 3-0 lead.   The Fighting Tigers (4-7) got one back on Leigha LaTourette's goal in the 38th minute, but MCLA would go into halftime with a commanding 3-1 edge.   Mancini and

'The Wife': Anatomy of a Marriage
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:14PM / Thursday, October 04, 2018
We all know one or more couples who confound us entirely; folks who appear to be tragically immersed in a marriage made in Hell, and yet, for none of the usual rationalizations, like kids money or religion, persevere in their obviously troubled plight.   But don't you dare voice your criticism and pretend to know something about their arrangement. For there is pride of ownership in marital dysfunction. And as my never-married Aunt Millie was always so readily fond of informing, odd glint in her eye, "No one knows what goes on behind closed doors."   You will read all of this and more into the emotive-rich facial expressions of Glenn Close as Joan Castleman, the

Holiday Hours: Columbus Day
10:18AM / Thursday, October 04, 2018

Dióscoro Teófilo Puebla Tolín's 'First landing of Columbus on the Shores of the New World,' at San Salvador, W.I., Oct. 12, 1492, from 1862.

Columbus Day is a state holiday being observed Monday, Oct. 8, to commemorate Christopher Columbus' arrival in the Americas on Oct. 12, 1492.

Columbus' voyage had been celebrated on significant anniversaries but did not become an official holiday until being recognized by Colorado in 1905. It was declared a federal holiday in 1937.

Not all states recognize Columbus Day. Some local and state governments have alternative Native American or indigenous peoples' days to reflect that others had

Phone Scammers Targeting Berkshire County Residents
10:03AM / Thursday, October 04, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Authorities are warning Berkshire County residents about a telephone scam targeting elderly victims.   Berkshire District Attorney Paul J. Caccaviello says several people have fallen victim to the scam in which the caller poses as a relative or the attorney of a relative that has been involved in an accident where someone else has been injured. The caller claims the relative is in need of bail money, legal fees and medical expenses.   Those making the fake calls have been operating out of the state of Florida, but the phone numbers they are using have an area code of 202, which is located in Washington, D.C.   Caccaviello is asking anyone who may
