Edge, MCLA Men Earn MASCAC Shutout
05:34PM / Saturday, October 12, 2019
WORCESTER, Mass. -- Mount Greylock Regional School graduate Sam Edge made four saves Saturday to earn a shutout as the MCLA men's soccer team earned its first MASCAC win of the season, 1-0, at Worcester State.   Junior Andrew Nygard scored the contest's only goal in the 31st minute, as he headed home a Ryan Wanek throw-in to put his team ahead 1-0.   In the second half, Worcester State (4-8, 1-3) poured on constant pressure, but just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. In the 52nd minute, Worcester State had three consecutive brilliant scoring opportunities, but MCLA keeper Edge was up to the task with phenomenal diving saves on attempts from Laszlo Dorogi,

Letter: Tom Bernard for North Adams Mayor
Letter to the Editor,
05:16PM / Friday, October 11, 2019

To the Editor:

Tom Bernard, the mayor of North Adams, shows up. Everywhere. And he would do more if only there were more hours in a day. In a recent Facebook post listing a dizzying number of activities which he led or joined in, Mayor Bernard wrote, "There are so many positive and exciting things happening in North Adams and throughout the Berkshires right now, and it's such a privilege to be part of them. Now if I could finally master the trick of being in three places at once."

With Tom Bernard, it's genuine. He deeply cares about all the people in North Adams — their well being, their quality of life, their opportunities. And he doesn't stop at the

@theMarket: Stocks Soar on 'Skinny' Deal
By Bill Schmick,
04:43PM / Friday, October 11, 2019
Global markets regained their footing this week, as expected good news on the trade front produced a "relief" rally in equities. Who cared that there was little substance to the deal? Investors decided that even a tiny deal was worth more than no deal at all.   As I wrote last week if "Trump believes he needs a 'win' to counter the slowing economy and the impeachment inquiry, then even a half-hearted deal might be in the cards. In which case, we could see a 10-15 percent move higher in the averages."   But before we pop the champagne, I want to see exactly what the trade deal agreement actually says. So far, we know that both sides have agreed to some

Northern Berkshire United Way Kicks off 2019-20 Campaign
By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:26AM / Friday, October 11, 2019

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire United Way touted its successes from the last year as it looked ahead to the next year at its annual meeting and campaign kickoff breakfast on Thursday.

Speaking to a sold-out crowd of 210 people gathered in the new Williams Inn, Christa Collier, executive director of the Northern Berkshire United Way, said the 2018-19 campaign goal of $480,000 was not only met but exceeded by $8,765. Much of that will be directed back to NBUW's 20 member agencies, but Collier on Thursday also wanted to highlight some of the other work the agency has been doing above and beyond those allocations.

To that end, two speakers shared news of programs last

The Independent Investor: Brokerage Business Not What It Used to Be
By Bill Schmick,
04:15PM / Thursday, October 10, 2019
Last week, Charles Schwab, the mega-discount broker, disrupted the brokerage industry yet again by dropping its per-trade commission rates for U.S. and Canadian stocks, exchange traded funds (ETFs), and options for both mobile and internet trades. It was inevitable and simply recognizes what the future holds for that segment of the financial industry.   Since Schwab's announcement on October 1, three additional big brokers — TD Ameritrade, E-Trade and Fidelity Investments — have thrown in the towel leaving only Vanguard (among the big houses) left out of the zero-commission trend.   The stock market reacted in shock. Traders hit the sell button on their computers

09:30PM / Wednesday, October 09, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- The MCLA women's soccer team rallied back from a 2-1 halftime deficit and Maddie Gibney's penalty kick goal with just two minutes remaining lifted the Trailblazers to a 3-2 non conference win over Cobleskill this evening at Shewcraft Field.   Cobleskill (3-8-1) held a 2-1 lead at the break, but MCLA (2-9-1) started to push the envelope in the second half.  They eventually pulled even in the 80th minute when Alyssa Porter slipped one in on the short side to tie things up at 2-2. It was Porter's third goal of 2019.   The score remained that way until the pivotal final two minutes. Cobleskill tripped an MCLA player in the box and the penalty

'Joker': Doesn't Kid Around
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:12PM / Wednesday, October 09, 2019
If van Gogh were alive today and dabbling in film, I expect that he might create something as artistically maddening as Todd Phillips' "Joker." But we must tread carefully. The controversy is there for the taking.    Joaquin Phoenix's Arthur Fleck, who will ultimately evolve into his alter ego, the Joker, before the closing credits fall on this fantastically directed, acted and produced "Batman" offshoot, is off the hook in every definition of the term. Thus the question is begged: Is it OK to derive entertainment from the criminally insane?   Phillips, who co-wrote this magnum opus with Scott Silver, throws all decorum and caution to the wind as
