New 'Boutique Bridal Show' Offers Couples Quieter, Personal Meetings With Vendors
10:55AM / Monday, February 19, 2018

With Valentine's Day having passed and the "engagement season" now officially over, future newlyweds are wondering what's next: "Where will our venue be? Who will cater? Is this vendor reliable?" In a time that should be filled with excitement, the wedding planning process can quickly become a hodgepodge of questions and stress.

Sure, you can ask married friends for advice, but what if you both have different definitions of "good"? Yes, you can read Internet reviews for hours, but who is to say they are completely legitimate? Ultimately, nothing beats meeting with a vendor face-to-face, but it can be tricky to find the time to meet with 10 different

@theMarket: Markets Have Best Week in Five Years
By Bill Schmick,
05:12PM / Friday, February 16, 2018
Stocks have had what is called a "V" shaped recovery this week. The indexes climbed every day at least one percent or more. Will it continue or ...   It wouldn't surprise me if stocks took a breather about now. A bout of profit-taking after the stupendous come-back we have had would be entirely reasonable. If the S&P 500 Index, for example, fell back 2-3 percent over the next week or so that would be healthy.   Remember, we are still in that period of the markets where investors are driven by the fear of missing out. As interest rates continue to climb and bond investors experience losses, the natural thing would be to sell bonds and buy equities.    In

BART Boys Basketball Rallies, Falls Short in League Title Game
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
06:51PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- You know a program has arrived when moral victories just don’t cut it.   In that sense, the BART basketball team has arrived.   Moments after losing its league championship game on a late 3-pointer after rallying from 11 points down midway through the third quarter, the Wolf Pack players were quiet, dejected and, perhaps at some level, thinking about how they can change the script next season.   Pioneer Valley Chinese Immersion Charter School knocked down a triple with 6.2 seconds on the clock to take a 39-38 win over a young but resilient BART squad and claim the B Division of the River Valley Athletic League.   “It's amazing what

Clarksburg Opens Bids for Gleason Street Culvert Repair
Staff Reports,
04:31PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Town officials on Wednesday opened six bids for repairs to a 200-foot culvert that has failed near Gleason Street.   Wheeler Brook runs from north of Gates Avenue and then under North Houghton, Gleason and School streets and down into North Adams to empty into the Hoosic River.    The failure of the underground culvert has cased a collapse at Gleason. The estimated value of the project was $40,000 but only two bids came close to that amount.    D.F. Lane Landscaping and Adams Excavating had the lowest base bids at $48,472.36 and $49,400, respectively.    Also bidding are A.J. Virgio Construction, with the highest amount at

The Independent Investor: Time to Hedge Your Bets?
By Bill Schmick,
03:41PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
Over the last few weeks, the threat of rising inflation has triggered a great deal of concern among investors. Given that inflation has been at a low level for a number of years, their concern may be justified.   Many market pundits were surprised by the wage data in the non-farm payroll report for December, which was released two weeks ago, Friday. In that report, wages jumped far more than most expected coming in at a 2.9 percent annualized growth rate.   Given that our central bank monitors wages as one of their key indicators to gauge future inflation, that number sent the bond and stock markets into a tizzy. Again this week, investors received another inflationary surprise

'Peter Rabbit': Hop to It!
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:25PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018
The kids whooped and hollered in gleeful approval of director Will Gluck's adaptation of Beatrix Potter's "Peter Rabbit." This even included the 10-to-12 contingent, usually too sophisticated to admit endorsement of an entertainment that might indict them of liking "baby stuff." And while the littler ones among the audience of fully engaged firstnighters whose space I recently invaded brought fingernails to lips whenever the title character risked cottontail and whiskers for ill-gotten vegetation, they, too, were otherwise charmed.      I was heartened by several insights, not the least of which was the erudition evinced by these young moviegoers

Guest Column: Quit Smoking to Celebrate American Heart Month
Guest Column,
03:00PM / Thursday, February 15, 2018

To the Editor:

February is American Heart Month. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking is a leading cause of heart disease. Smoking can:

• Raise triglycerides (a type of fat in your blood) • Lower "good" cholesterol (HDL) • Make blood sticky and more likely to clot, which can block blood flow to the heart and brain • Damage cells that line the blood vessels • Increase the buildup of plaque (fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances) in blood vessels • Cause thickening and narrowing of blood vessels

Smoking can lead to the narrowing of blood vessels and high blood pressure and quitting smoking greatly
