@theMarket: Fedspeak Occupies A Dull Market
By Bill Schmick,
06:16PM / Friday, August 19, 2016

It is late summer and a time when the rumor mills work overtime. Financial news departments, confronted with a paucity of breaking news, are desperate to publish "informed opinions" and comments from any public or private sector big name they can find. This week a squad of Fed officials was happy to accommodate.

Never mind that after a week of speeches on "will they, or won’t they” hike rates in September (or December, or anytime in between), investors are no closer to the truth than they were last week. As long as raising-interest rate decisions continue to be data-dependent, the markets remain in nowhere land.

I am not going to add my two cents to the debate

'Indignation': A Fine Sadness
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
11:46AM / Friday, August 19, 2016

If you need a very literate affirmation that life can sometimes be brutal, sad, mocking, unfair and heartrending, then director/screenwriter James Schamus' diligent adaptation of Philip Roth's "Indignation" awaits you at the Bijou. You can't help but be mesmerized by the searing, incisive realities Roth mines in his chronicle of a Jewish young man's experiences, circa early 1950s, at a small college in Ohio. The messages, either blatant or frighteningly violent in their subtlety, are delivered with righteous indignation, suggesting a modern addendum to the Greek tragedies.

If you're familiar with the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's body of work,

The conservation group said trail safety was one of their main concerns.

ADAMS, Mass. – Adams residents are brainstorming ways to harness magic from the Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to spark the local economy.

"We need to come up with as many ideas we can from the far out and the fun to the very probable, to the businesses, to people and to families and just weave this in as much as we can," Town Administrator Tony Mazzucco said on Thursday night. "We can have as much fun with it as we want but there is an economic component to this as well.

BRPC To Towns: Consider Long-term Sustainability of Broadband Choices
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
02:11AM / Friday, August 19, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Regional Planning Commission is warning towns not to settle for internet which may not be fast enough in a few years.   The relaunching of the Massachusetts Broadband Institute comes with changes to the program which allows towns to craft individual plans for expanding broadband into unserved areas. That includes grants for cable companies to expand, such as Lanesborough, West Stockbridge, and Hinsdale opted to do, or expansion of a wireless system — like Middlefield is piloting — or running fiber cables to the homes like Mount Washington.    BRPC's Regional Issues Subcommittee believes that nothing less than fiber optic
