'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.

Columbus' voyage had been celebrated on significant anniversaries but did not become an official holiday until being recognized by Colorado in 1905. It was declared a federal holiday in 1937.

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


Phone Scammers Targeting Berkshire County Residents
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. The caller claims the relative is in need of bail money, legal fees and medical expenses.   Those making the fake calls have been operating out of the state of Florida, but the phone numbers they are using have an area code of 202, which is located in Washington, D.C.   Caccaviello is asking anyone who may

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

Mark Brodeur, also an RN, was more fiery in his speech, blaming hospital executives across the state for choosing profit over patient care.  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Advocates for the ballot measure instituting minimum nurse staffing levels in hospitals say the focus is on patient safety.    "The care has gotten tougher, the patients have gotten sicker with our opioid epidemic," said Amber VanBramer, a registered nurse in the intensive care unit at Berkshire Medical Center. "We need safe limits to be able to care for these patients properly."   Around a dozen registered nurses and supporters, including North Adams City Councilor Jason

CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Town officials are close to reaching an agreement over a lawsuit filed by Verizon over the denial of a cell-tower permit but an abuttor is pressing them not to forget how the tower's location might affect his property.    Bryan Tanner, who is also the town moderator, appeared at last Wednesday's Select Board meeting to press officials on which spot at the former North Adams Country Club was under discussion for the placement of a 140-foot monopole.    "Obviously Verizon has been successful in their court appeal and I've had to accept the fact a tower will be on that property," he said, but wondered if the location
