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

"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

'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.

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

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.

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
08:15PM / Wednesday, October 03, 2018

The undersized fiberglass steeple will be removed. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Planning Board on Monday approved a parking plan for the proposed Loom restaurant on Massachusetts Avenue that is connected to the Tourists resort.    Executive Chef Cortney Burns and Eric Kerns, a partner in Tourists, had appeared before the board in September seeking approval of the transformation of the former Our Lady of Incarnation Church into a farm-to-table restaurant for the resort. The plans, however, did not include parking and the proposal was delayed until a variance could be obtained or a new plan submitted.    On Monday, the board gave the OK to a parking lot with spaces

Can You Count on a Bountiful Investment 'Harvest'?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:52AM / Wednesday, October 03, 2018

We're officially in autumn – the season when we bring in what we planted in the spring. But the concept of planting and gathering isn't confined to agriculture. In fact, it can be used in many walks of life, including investing. So what can you do to help work toward a successful investment "harvest"?

Here is (not quite) a bushel of ideas:

Plant the right "seeds." When farmers plant specific crops, they know about what to expect – how long it will take for them to grow, how much yield they will produce, and so on. When you invest, you too need to plant "seeds" by choosing investments that are designed to help meet your goals. For example,

Berkshire Health Systems Has 'Legitimate Concerns' With Ballot Question
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Wednesday, October 03, 2018

Berkshire Medical Center says not all the staff are on board with Question 1, providing a group photo to prove it. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Medical Center officials estimate that it'll cost the hospital $22.8 million if Question 1 is passed.   Voters will decide in November whether to legally mandate specific ratios of registered nurses to patients. Berkshire Health Systems is opposing the question, fearing the costs will prove to be detrimental to the services it provides.   "It requires us to hire between 120 and 130 registered nurses. Do the math, it is about $20 million for Berkshire Medical Center. It is a lot of money," President and CEO
