Clarksburg Historical Commission Republishing Local History Book
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:42AM / Tuesday, January 07, 2020

Ethel Mae Marsden lived most of her life on Hall's Ground, where she raised canaries for many years. She published her book in 1962. CLARKSBURG, Mass. — Ethel Mae Marsden decided nearly 60 years ago that it was time to record the history of this small North County town.    A longtime breeder of canaries who was tuned into the goings-on in Clarksburg despite her lifelong disability, the "Bird Girl" wrote down a personalized description of the "story, facts, myths and mysteries" of the town, according to her own advertisement in the former North Adams Transcript.    A few copies of this slim — it's only 70 pages — booklet

The commissioners voted to begin

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
06:32AM / Saturday, January 04, 2020

The new location in the Colonial Plaza is 600 square feet bigger than the eatery's original spot.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Berkshire Palate has moved to accommodate its expanding business.    The eatery has moved just a few doors down at the Colonial Plaza into the former EAT — a more suitable location for its cuisine, business, and customers.    "People are really receptive to the menu and I think they like that we are family owned and the food is local," co-owner Paul Brassard said. "They like the creative things we do on the menu and it is never the same old thing."   Berkshire Palate is a family business run by

@theMarket: New Wall of Worry for Markets
By Bill Schmick,
06:27PM / Friday, January 03, 2020
Donald Trump's decision this week to kill Iran's second-most important figure, Gen. Qassem Soleimanai, this week placed a time-out on the stock market's bull run into the New Year. Do you run for the hills or do you buy the dip?   If I look back to other geopolitical events, my first reaction is to use any further declines as an opportunity to increase exposure to the stock markets. At the same time, I wouldn't chase those categories of assets that have vaulted higher in response to this event. Gold and oil both moved higher overnight, but those gains could be fleeting as investors begin to assess whether or not there will be any further downside.   That is not to

No Injuries & Minimal Damage in Mohawk Forest Fire
By Jack Guerino,
06:22PM / Friday, January 03, 2020

The fire was largely out by the time firefighters arrived but they had to determine it was completely doused and had not spread into the walls.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Firefighters responded to a fire in a Mohawk Forest apartment that was already mostly extinguished by the time they arrived.   The call came over the scanner just after noon Friday. Dispatch reported that smoke was seen bellowing out of apartment 34.   "We were right on scene and there was a little light haze of smoke down near the front door," Lt. Brent Lefebvre said. "We went into the building and found just some charring and some embers above the stove in the cabinets. We put it out

'Uncut Gems': Frenetic: [fruh-net-ik] Filled With Excitement, Activity, or Confusion: Wild or Frantic
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires columnist
05:14PM / Friday, January 03, 2020
Adam Sandler's partially tour de force and indubitably frenetic portrayal of New York Diamond District jeweler/gambler Howard Ratner in "Uncut Gems" is a wildly disturbing adventure yarn, the purpose of which I'm still trying to figure out. Neither a comprehensive character study of its anxiety-ridden, addictive personality nor a scientific delve into the protagonist's torturing affliction, Howard's pillar-to-post rampage in quest of that ultimate score courtesy of a raw, Ethiopian opal will leave you shockingly exhausted.   Nonetheless, when I recently issued that quasi-deterring cautionary to an acquaintance, she seemed even more anxious than before to

The Independent Investor: Why Is Inflation so Low?
By Bill Schmick,
12:14PM / Friday, January 03, 2020
The inflation rate has not been a cause of concern in this country for well over a decade. On the contrary, economists have been worried that the opposite might occur, a bout of deflation.   Throughout the last decade, inflation has averaged no more than 1 1/2 percent, which is well below the Federal Reserve Bank's targeted inflation rate of 2 percent. Historically, that is highly unusual, given how economics are supposed to work. Central banks around the world (although they don't like to admit it), have no idea why the inflation rate is as low as it is.  Neither do global economists, or Wall Street strategists.   World economies continue to grow, and interest rates

Is Market Timing a Smart Investment Strategy?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
03:06PM / Thursday, January 02, 2020

You may have heard that timing is everything. And in many walks of life, that may be true – but not necessarily when it comes to investing.

To understand why this is so, let's look at three common mistakes investors make:

* Selling investments and moving to cash when stocks are predicted to drop: If you follow the financial news on cable TV or the internet, you're eventually bound to discover some "experts" who are predicting imminent, huge drops in the stock market. And on rare occasions, they may be right – but often they're not. And if you were to sell some of your stocks or stock-based investments based on a prediction and move the money to cash or a
