'Wind River': Opens the Floodgates of Indignation
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
02:09PM / Thursday, August 31, 2017
Writer-director Taylor Sheridan's "Wind River," a murder-mystery inspired by true events, deserves plaudits not only because it is a skilled piece of filmmaking, but also owing to its eye-opening exposé of the disgraceful socioeconomic conditions on Native American reservations.   While the majority of Americans are more or less cognizant of the poverty that wreaks havoc in our urban ghettos, far fewer citizens are familiar with this rural brand of destitution ostensibly swept under the carpet of our national conscience. See it up close and the mind boggles.   Be warned, this is tough viewing. In service to its ugly divulgences, there are few punches pulled.

10:45AM / Thursday, August 31, 2017

Next week, we observe Labor Day, a celebration of the American worker. You work hard your whole life with the hope that your efforts will ultimately allow you to achieve your financial goals, such as a comfortable retirement. But for that to happen, you may need to apply some of the lessons of the workplace to your efforts as an investor.

So, what are these lessons? Here are a few to consider:

Be consistent. The most successful workers are the ones who show up, day after day, and strive to overcome the inevitable obstacles that crop up. As an investor, you, too, need to be consistent in your habits – which means you should keep investing in all types of markets. If you take a

10:30AM / Wednesday, August 30, 2017

True pizza lovers like to change up our beloved pie into all kinds of different combinations. We have been unable to live life by pepperoni alone, even though we a lot of us are die-hard pepperoni fans.

If you're looking to try a new slice of pie, here are five unique pizzas made in the Berkshires that you'll totally want to order this weekend.

The memorial for Laughlin that was found with the bust. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Gail King needs your help.   When the North Carolina resident and New England expatriate returned to the area this summer to help clean out the home of the recently deceased Jean Ann King, Gail found among her things a bust sculpted by Jean's daughter, Ruth Ellen King, who died in 2013.   With it was a newspaper clipping with a memorial for the sculpture's apparent subject, Keith W. Laughlin.    And that is where the trail goes cold.   The clipping is not an obituary, which would list survivors, but a poem that only references Laughlin's "Mom, Step Dad,

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Officials say the city's water is safe, but residents with compromised immune systems are still being cautioned after three water samples came up positive for total coliform bacteria.    According to a letter mailed to residents from the Water Department, random testing in June turned up positive samples of coliform bacteria.

"Everything is explained in the letter. It even says samples from the original site the following day came back
