@theMarket: Does the Fed Know Something We Don't?
By Bill Schmick,
09:55AM / Saturday, March 23, 2019
Sometimes too much good news can be interpreted badly. Take the U.S. central bank's about face on monetary policy late last year. That was good news and investors responded by bidding the stock market up by 20 percent. But this week we may have received even better news, or did we?   The Fed did more than met investors' expectation this week at the central bank's monthly Federal Open Market Committee meeting. Chairman Jerome Powell indicated that there would be no more interest rate hikes for the remainder of the year (after saying back in December that two rate hikes were on the table for 2019). There was even some discussion that a rate cut might be possible, if

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
07:04AM / Saturday, March 23, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The path for Bohemian Road pointed north as the gift and novelty traveled from Adams to the city's downtown Eagle Street last month.    "I live in Adams and I love the town ... It is a beautiful town but my girlfriend and I would come to North Adams and go to Mass MoCA and eat at different restaurants and we noticed there were always a ton of people walking around," owner Randy Cormier said of his decision move from Park Street. "That is not the case in Adams and this was just a business decision."   Cormier, who used to operate Brighter Daze at the Berkshire Mall, said his new location is just about the same size as his Park

North Adams Traffic Commission Advises Raising Parking Permit Rates
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:07AM / Saturday, March 23, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Traffic Commission is recommending the same price for parking permits in both the Center Street and St. Anthony Municipal parking lots.     The commission in January voted to raise the price in the Center Street lot by $10 but couldn't address the St. Anthony lot because it had not been put on the agenda. On Monday, the commissioners agreed that permits in both lots should cost the same.    St. Anthony's prices have been lower than Center Street's and also took into account a reduction during the winter months that Chairwoman Mary Ann King said had been instituted to encourage more parking there.    "I think

What Should You Do With an Inheritance?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:52AM / Friday, March 22, 2019

If you were to receive a sizable inheritance, what should you do with it? This money could help you achieve some of your important financial goals – so you'll want to think carefully about your choices.

Of course, everyone's needs are different, so there's no one "right" way to handle a large lump sum. But here are a few suggestions that may be useful:

Pay off some debts. Depending on the size of your inheritance, you may want to consider paying off some, if not all, of your debts, such as car loans, personal loans and student loans. You might even consider paying off your mortgage, but you may not want to, as you might be able to get a better return on your

03:57AM / Friday, March 22, 2019

The mall remains closed. Regal Cinema and Target are still open.

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The Berkshire Mall mysteriously closed for two days, one week after a judge ordered the sheriff's office to seize close to $300,000 in assets to pay off a court settlement.

  Mall management has been unavailable over the last two days. The mall was closed on Wednesday afternoon. The entrance door was open providing access to the separate Regal Cinemas, but tables and a security fence blocked access to the rest of the mall. Target also remained

The Independent Investor: Will Pot Stocks Go Up in Smoke?
By Bill Schmick,
05:29PM / Thursday, March 21, 2019
Today, medical marijuana is legal in 33 states, while recreational marijuana is legal in 10 states, plus the District of Columbia. Although there has been progress, little of the recent enthusiasm and hype over pot stocks will come to naught unless the federal government does a major about face and legalizes the substance. What are the chances of that?   Billions of dollars' worth of investment, stock market gains, and federal, state, and local taxes are at stake. Predicting the outcome of such a change in federal legislation is, for now, like betting all your chips on red or black in a roulette game. Nonetheless, a growing number of retail investors want to "get in" on

'Transit': As in, Letters of ...
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
02:57PM / Thursday, March 21, 2019
One has to be either a fool or a complicit coward not to recognize the mercilessness regularly perpetrated on humankind by immoral governments and their tyrannical leaders. Equally clueless are those who don't realize that the worldwide, mass immigration being used as a scapegoat by said guilty-as-sin autocrats is in essence a product of their regimes' greed, racism and ineptness.   Ever notice that the really bad guys are never ever wrong? While Rick in "Casablanca" (1942) occasionally confesses to a lack of judgement, you'll never hear good Nazi Major Strasser admitting a mistake. Civics Lesson No. 1: Rick is good; Major Strasser is bad.   What all this has

PITTSFIELD,  Mass. — Berkshire Community College is restructuring its workforce development arm.   The college is currently looking for a new dean who will be in charge of bringing the community education and workforce development programming under the oversight of traditional academic programming.
