New Antique Shop Replaces North Adams Bar
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
01:56AM / Monday, June 13, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The former Crystal Hard Hat Saloon at Union and Canal streets is now Another Man's Treasure, an antiques shop.

Owner Todd Hebert said it will open later this month with a little bit of everything, including co-op merchandise.

"We have collectables, art work, furniture, smalls, pottery," Hebert said. "There is something for everyone. We have little bit of this and a little bit of that at different prices."

For Hebert, it's a return to a quieter line of work. He owned an antiques shop in Adams before opening the Crystal Hard Hat. The bar business just got to be much, he said.

Hebert operated the saloon for three years across the street

Cages Baseball Club Splits Home Double-Header
05:13PM / Sunday, June 12, 2016
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Mike Strizzi doubled in two runs in a six-run sixth inning that gave the Cages Baseball Club an 8-4 win and a split in Sunday’s double-header against the Champlain Mariners.   The Mariners took the first game, 6-4, and appeared to be headed for a sweep when they took a 4-2 lead into the bottom of the sixth, but Cages rallied to get to 2-4 on the season and snap a 20-game winning streak for Champlain.   Kellen Hathaway went 2-for-2, and Eric Leitch drove in a pair of runs in the win.   Alex Carusotto went the distance to earn the win, striking out six, walking two and allowing just one earned run.   In Sunday’s opener, Brodie Altiere

@theMarket: The Only Game in Town
By Bill Schmick,
05:31PM / Friday, June 10, 2016

Investors are scratching their heads in confusion. How can U.S. stocks, bonds, commodities and the dollar all go up at the same time? It flies in the face of historical relationships that have been around for years. Thank the central banks of the world for the present situation.

It all comes down to negative interest rates. This year, both European and Japanese central banks have instituted this tactic in an effort to jump-start their economies, weaken their currencies, and offer lending institutions a disincentive to hoarding cash, rather than lend it out.

So far, this strategy has had dismal results.

Foreign institutions have flocked to the American financial markets where in our bond
