'Battle of the Sexes': We've Come a Long Way, Baby
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
05:44PM / Friday, October 06, 2017
Watching Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris's "Battle of the Sexes," about the events leading up to the famous gender war/tennis match on Sept. 20, 1973, between woman's champion Billie Jean King and former great Bobby Riggs, I tried to remember what I thought at the time. I like to think I applauded the dispelling of prejudices and welcomed the renaissance it boded for the human race. Surely I didn't opt for the he-man stance, afraid what it might mean to my manhood if a female bested a male in something other than childbirth. Nah, I couldn't have.   It's mindboggling. While the more advanced, higher-educated segments of the world's populace have more

The Independent Investor: Tackling Taxes
By Bill Schmick,
05:05PM / Friday, October 06, 2017

Give him an "A" for effort in tackling something that no politician has dared to do since Reagan.   Naturally, depending upon your political views, critics will disparage his efforts, claiming it is yet another tax break for the rich. Others will approve of at least some of his suggestions. On the surface, his plan would significantly reduce the marginal tax rates, increase standard deductions, repeal personal exemptions, limit itemized deductions and let corporations and businesses expense new investment, but not deduct interest

Staff Reports,
04:08PM / Thursday, October 05, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — What type of outdoor recreation would you want to see created?   That's what the state is asking right now.
