'A Star is Born': Yet Again
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:21PM / Thursday, October 11, 2018
With four "A Star is Born" iterations in the books and probably many more to come — expect one every ensuing generation — the universality of the tale is a given. Until some bold director makes a woman the established star, and the up-and-comer a male, the formula remains the same. He's a major star flirting with the decadence that comes of success, with booze and/or substance abuse the tell-tale sign of his looming, downward spiral. She's the talented, innocent and grateful ingénue he discovers.   I remember how surprised I was in my youth when I found there was an earlier version of another, oft-remade movie of which I was particularly enamored. I

Clarksburg, Williamstown Awarded State Housing Grants
03:22PM / Thursday, October 11, 2018
CLARKSBURG, Mass. — The town has received $21,500 in state grant funding for improvements to the Briggsville Water District.    The funds come from nearly $5 million awarded by the Baker-Polito Administration through the Housing Choice Initiative. Also receiving funds are Egremont and Great Barrington and Williamstown.   The private water district was taken over last year by the town because of the cooperative's difficulty in finding trustees and addressing the significant infrastructure upgrades required for the more than 30-year-old district.   The district serves 68 housing units along River Road as well as the Town Hall and the Strong-Hewat Mill complex,

How Can You Become a 'Sustainable' Investor?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:19PM / Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Your values are important to you – and so are your investments. But you don't have to keep these two parts of your life separate if you pursue sustainable investing.

If you haven't heard of this term, you might know it by other names: socially responsible investing, values-based investing and environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing. Essentially, sustainable investing incorporates non-financial or indirect financial considerations, specifically environmental concerns (climate change, renewable energy, water scarcity), social concerns (human rights, product safety or liability) and governance issues (corporate behavior, executive compensation, lobbying and so on).

Flu Shot: Get the Vaccine to Protect You And Those Around You
By Dr. Everett Lamm,
12:12PM / Wednesday, October 10, 2018

With flu season around the corner, your health care providers, employers, pharmacists and others are sounding the annual reminder: "Get your annual flu shot." We encourage this for you — and for the people around you, too. We see evidence every year of the benefits of the flu vaccine, and we also see the risks of skipping it.

The flu vaccine has dramatic impacts on public health. However, since strains of the flu may vary from year to year, the vaccine must be received annually. Although the vaccine doesn't guarantee a flu-free winter and perfect health, medical research has convincingly shown that the flu shot reduces flu severity and reduces sick visits,

North Adams Council Endorses Keeping Gun Range Open
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:42AM / Wednesday, October 10, 2018

The nine councilors unanimously endorsed the Public Safety Committee's resolution. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council on Tuesday approved a resolution recommended by the Public Safety Committee to keep the gun range open.   It was a strong rebuke to Mayor Thomas Bernard, who had ordered the range closed to public access effective Jan. 1, 2019, after learning that the city's insurance company would no longer cover it for liability reasons. Its use would be limited to members of the Police Department for employment-related needs.   The order in July came after several meetings held by the committee to discuss ways to improve the range and to hear grievances
