'The Irishman': At 3 Hours & 29 Minutes, it all Depends
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:31PM / Friday, December 06, 2019
"Fuhgeddaboudit" was the advice from those who decided against climbing the movie mountain that is Martin Scorsese's "The Irishman," all 3 hours and 29 minutes of it. Dilemmas presented themselves. How many times will I have to go to the bathroom? Should we skip breakfast, have dinner now, pack a picnic lunch, or maybe even book a room close to the theater?   The destinies of whole lives were changed for those strict constructionists who wouldn't succumb to the tyranny of their bladders by availing themselves of the small screen, Netflix offering.   Me? Nope. I came this far in my moviegoing ... lived through the days of when films broke in midstream,

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:10AM / Friday, December 06, 2019

Clarksburg School hopes to have 90 percent of the construction on the entrance done during a two-week holiday vacation. CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Clarksburg students will get a full two weeks off over the Christmas holiday beginning with a half day on Friday, Dec. 20, and returning on Jan. 6, 2020.   The School Committee voted for the two-week block on Thursday to ensure the school will be vacant for construction on the new secure entrance. That means students will have both the Monday and Tuesday before Christmas and will also have Jan. 2 and 3 off as well.    But it doesn't mean fewer days of school — the motion also tacked on three days at the end of the

The Independent Investor: Truth About NATO & Defense Spending
By Bill Schmick,
04:19PM / Thursday, December 05, 2019
While it would appear that President Donald Trump left the London NATO Summit this week empty-handed, the truth is he has already achieved what several presidents before him could not. Unfortunately, it is a shallow victory at best.   Just a week ago, in preparation for President Trump's visit, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization announced a change in the funding of its budget. It agreed to reduce the United States' contribution to the alliance (now 22 percent) and redistribute the costs to other members. As a result, the U.S. and Germany will now pay the same amount. Each will contribute 16 percent of NATO's central budget.   The problem is that NATO's central
