@theMarket: The 'Apprentice' Manages the Markets
By Bill Schmick,
04:02PM / Friday, December 13, 2019
Where to begin? The China trade deal, the UK elections, the impeachment of the president? Let's not forget the agreement on a new North American trade deal as well. It was a heck of a week and Donald Trump flawlessly controlled the news flow.   Boris Johnson, the Conservative Party leader and prime minister of England, won the greatest majority since Margaret Thatcher on Thursday evening. That is good news for the United Kingdom. His victory also supercharges hopes that a Brexit deal can finally be accomplished in 2020. The British pound skyrocketed over 3 percent on the news, and the London stock market was up 2 percent as well. Good news.   The replacement for NAFTA, called

State Income Tax to Drop for Sixth Time This Decade
11:31AM / Friday, December 13, 2019
BOSTON — Massachusetts residents are getting some income tax relief in the new year with individual rate dropping to its lowest in years thanks to a state law passed nearly two decades ago.    Gov. Charlie Baker on Friday said the state's Part B individual income tax rate will be reduced from 5.05 percent to 5 percent effective Jan. 1, 2020. This upcoming tax cut represents the conclusion of the statutory process laid out in a 2002 state law to lower the income tax rate to 5 percent based on certain state revenue milestones, and will return $88 million in fiscal 2020 and approximately $185 million in fiscal 2021 to taxpayers.   "Starting in January, the income

The Independent Investor: False Promises Hit Farmers, Manufacturers
By Bill Schmick,
05:31PM / Thursday, December 12, 2019
The very people who were supposed to benefit from making America great again have become victims of the man who promised them so much but has delivered so little.   While the Rust Belt states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania teeter on the edge of recession, those in the agricultural sector (also Wisconsin, as well as Georgia, Nebraska and Kansas) are already facing an increasing number of bankruptcies. These are the swing states that carried Donald Trump to a win three years ago. They are now feeling the brunt of his trade, tariff, and wholesale rejection of climate change.   Farm bankruptcies through September 2019 are up 24 percent versus last

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The Interstate Merger Committee has hired Public Consulting Group to lead it through the next steps toward a merger between Clarksburg and Stamford (Vt.) Schools.    However, the Clarksburg contingent feels more discussion is needed on the merits of a merger between the two small elementary schools.    Superintendent John Franzoni filled the School Committee in last week about the selection of PCG, which had done the initial study of the schools that was presented to the towns. Based on that research, the adjoining towns both voted to continue the process to determine how such a merger would work and what legal processes would be

'Dark Waters': 'They Were All My Sons'
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:34PM / Thursday, December 12, 2019
"They were all my sons." — Joe, in Arthur Miller's "All My Sons"   Pogo's Walt Kelly capsulized man's inhumanity to man when he coined a cynical variation on U.S. Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's 1813 missive to Army General William Henry Harrison, informing, after the victory at Lake Erie, "We have met the enemy and they are ours." Kelly's version, written on the occasion of the infamous McCarthy hearings, and since employed in anti-pollution demonstrations, reads, "We have met the enemy and he is us."   So, what do we do? A closing statement in Todd Haynes' beyond disturbing "Dark Waters," about one

Clarksburg Town Hall Closed Extra Days Over Holidays
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:34AM / Thursday, December 12, 2019

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The town offices will be closed a few extra days over the upcoming holidays.

The Select Board on Wednesday approved closing Town Hall on Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas. That means the Town Hall will only be open on Monday, Dec. 23, that week.   Town Hall will also be closed the day after New Year's as well.   Chairman Ronald Boucher made the proposal saying it didn't make much sense to open on the Thursdays after the two Wednesday holidays since the town offices are closed on Fridays anyways.   Closing on Tuesday, Dec. 24, would also give the town employees an extra day off, he said.   "I thought it would be a nice
