Berkshire County Remembrances on World War I Centennial
Staff Reports,
11:00AM / Sunday, November 11, 2018
Three years after the end of World War I, the United States followed the lead of other powers involved in the war by dedicating a tomb to an unknown soldier as a way to memorialize the many casualties who would not return home in any form.    The day, Nov. 11, 1921, was filled with somber pomp and ceremony as the cortege wound its way from the Capitol to Arlington National Cemetery. The War Department had gone to great lengths to ensure that this soldier — who would represent all U.S. servicemen and women — was truly unable to be identified.    His body was accompanied by a host of dignitaries and national leaders including three presidents and Gen. John

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
01:32AM / Sunday, November 11, 2018
ADAMS, Mass. — World War I veteran Roy Carpenter not only served his country overseas but also when he returned home.   Local historian Eugene Michalenko said Carpenter was one of the nearly 140 soldiers from Adams who served during the final months of World War I, and like his fellow National Guardsmen in Company M, he was excited to go.     "Oh definitely," he said. "They were all hyped up. There definitely were no slackers. Everybody was ready to go."   Like many in Adams, Carpenter was a young mill worker in the Renfrew Mills before being deployed on July 1917. After training, the group landed in France in October where the war was well

Hector R. Tremblay in uniform. He was nearly 40 when he re-enlisted to serve in World War I. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Thirty-four minutes. Dug into a hole for the night in France under heavy shelling in November 1918, Hector Richard Tremblay wrote to his wife that he'd give "half his life" for 34 minutes in the city of Pittsfield.   "As I sit in my little hole, my feet are wet and I am cold as the devil. I wonder if I will ever see Pittsfield again," he had written in a letter dated Nov. 9, 1918. "I would give half my life if I could be in Pittsfield for 34 minutes but I must be patient and my time will come."   Tremblay was born on Jan. 4,

Springfield Women's Basketball Tops MCLA in Opener
09:42PM / Saturday, November 10, 2018
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Four Springfield College starters scored in double figures as the Pride women's basketball team opened up play with a 76-37 win over the MCLA Trailblazers in non conference action on Saturday.   The Pride and Trailblazers traded blows in the first quarter that ended with Springfield holding a slim 17-15 lead after Chelsea McAllister made a pair of free throws heading into the second quarter. MCLA's Mckenzie Robinson (Hoosac Valley) drilled a 3-pointer to open the second quarter to put the hosts on top 18-17, but that was followed by a Pride rally that MCLA had no answers for.   Springfield outscored MCLA, 21-4, to close out the quarter and amass a

@theMarket: Stocks Take a Breather
By Bill Schmick,
06:23PM / Friday, November 09, 2018
Stocks are in the process of consolidating after the big gains over the last week or so. So far, the October sell-off has led to a recovery of about half of what was lost. In the two months ahead, we should see even further gains.   No matter how much we would like it to, the stock market rarely goes straight up. It is one reason why I constantly advise clients not to check their portfolios on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis. And never check them in down markets. Why put yourself through that emotional turmoil — especially when you have no intention of using the money anytime soon.   As we now know, the Democrats regained the House this week. As I, and everyone else

'Bohemian Rhapsody': Fate, Free-Will and Rock 'n' Roll
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:32PM / Friday, November 09, 2018
I once knew a rock band, The Original Kounts, and, because lead singer Howard "Richard" Tepp was my best friend, I was sort of the manager for a while sometime in the late 1960s. That was before Bob Crewe's Larry Brown ("Tie a Yellow Ribbon") walked into Newark, N.J.'s Indian Pizzeria and heard Howie singing to the jukebox. I think I was eating a tuna sub. Well, before you could say rock star, Howie became Richard of Richard and The Young Lions, had a number one hit in Cleveland, Detroit and D.C. with his single, "Open up Your Door" and, as the apocrypha goes, might have also had a career-propelling hit in NYC were it not for the DJ strike.   No

The Independent Investor: Mid-Term Results Take Investor Focus Off Washington
By Bill Schmick,
04:33PM / Thursday, November 08, 2018
True to form, the opposition party regained control of the House, while the ruling party, in this case the GOP, retained control of the Senate. If history is any guide, this means that little in the way of legislation will be coming out of Congress for the next two years.   In the past, investors and the stock market alike did better than you might expect under this kind of political paralysis. That's because financial markets abhor the unknown. Given the unpredictability of politics and legislation, investors are far more content with inaction than action, unless of course, those actions are favorable to the markets or the economy.   Take for example, the tax cut of 2018.
