'Isn't It Romantic': It's to Laugh
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
07:18PM / Thursday, February 21, 2019
  First things first. Unlike the 1932 Rodgers and Hart classic song "Isn't It Romantic?" director Todd Strauss-Schulson's convivially entertaining romantic comedy, "Isn't It Romantic," forsakes the question mark at title's end. All of which is either a mental slip or intended to suggest a more demonstrative, rhetorical meaning. In other words, no question about it: It Is Romantic!   In such case, an exclamation point would have been a more apt substitute for the question mark, and I would have been left without a pretentious, opening paragraph.   To tarry further, as I'm prone to do when the film in question doesn't necessitate

The Independent Investor: Economic Prosperity in the United States
By Bill Schmick,
05:01PM / Thursday, February 21, 2019
The stock market is once again approaching historical highs. Unemployment is at multi-year lows. Interest rates and inflation, if not at record lows, are close to it. The president claims we are enjoying the strongest economy in our nation's history. Is that true?   The short answer, according to a recent study by Bloomberg, would be no, not even close. They went back over the course of the last 43 years and measured the nation's economy under three Democratic and four Republican presidents. They found that in all but one case both the economic and financial performance of the U.S. was better than it is now.   Bloomberg used 14 different gauges to measure a wide range of

North Adams Properties in Real Estate Limbo
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:58AM / Thursday, February 21, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It was two years ago the city set out to sell off municipal property that's not needed or really never wanted.    But the city's attempts to divest itself of unwanted properties has not so far been terribly successful. Some smaller lots have been auctioned off or sold to abuttors, but the larger parcels seem to be in real estate limbo.   Only one appears headed toward a resolution soon: the former City Yard that is under contract with Cumberland Farms. The convenience store and gas station chain has requested extensions but has also moved ahead to line up permits and approvals to build a large new location on the Ashland Street

Wintry Mix Could Slicken Roads Overnight Into Morning
01:48PM / Wednesday, February 20, 2019

As if it's not already pretty darn icy out there, here comes another round of winter yuck.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory from 7 p.m. Wednesday to 10 a.m. Thursday. The advisory predicts "mixed accumulation" - up to 2 inches of snow and up to one-tenth of an inch of ice.

The commute home Wednesday should be fine but as darkness falls Wednesday night watch out for conditions to deteriorate, and Thursday morning's commute in to work could be messy, too. Thanksfully, with schools on vacation, there's no need to worry about school buses.

Temperatures should remain in the mid-20s overnight but warm into the low 30s by morning, causing

The Right Insurance Can Meet Both Short- and Long-term Needs
12:27PM / Wednesday, February 20, 2019

If you're going to achieve your important financial goals, you'll need to build an appropriate investment portfolio. But that's only part of the story – because you also need to protect what you have, what you earn and what you’d like to leave behind. That's why it's a good idea to become familiar with the various types of insurance and how they can address short- and long-term needs.

For starters, consider life insurance. You may have important long-term goals, such as leaving an inheritance for your family and providing resources for your favorite charities. You may be able to fulfill some of these through the death benefit on your policy.

North Adams City Council Delays Vote on Mohawk Theater
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Councilors Marie T. Harpin and Jason LaForest pushed to delay the decision saying they had questions on the process. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday balked at signing off an order to dispose of the Mohawk Theater and continued the discussion until next week.    Several councilors expressed concern that the council — and city — would lose control over aspects of the landmark theater based on the language in the request for proposals and that there were too many unanswered questions.    "It's a significant property for the city of North Adams and its residents," said Councilor Marie T. Harpin. "I just feel as

Farley-Bouvier Pushes Bill to Raise Tipped Workers Minimum Wage
Staff Reports,
06:53PM / Tuesday, February 19, 2019
BOSTON — State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier is calling for the elimination of a lower wage for tipped workers.   The Pittsfield Democrat joined other lawmakers and Restaurant Opportunities Center this past Wednesday at the State House to introduce a bill that will gradually raise the minimum wage for tipped workers until it matches the minimum wage for all other industries.    "This bill will raise the minimum wage to the prevailing wage by 2027 in Massachusetts. In doing so, it would bring thousands of workers out of poverty, reduce sexual harassment in the workplace, and decrease the wage gap between male and female tipped workers," Farley-Bouvier said at the

The population numbers gathered by the Census is followed by the state redrawing the lines for both the federal and state districts.
