By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:24AM / Thursday, January 02, 2020

Police Chief Jason Wood takes the oath of office in a public ceremony at Brayton School.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The year 2019 was marked by change within the city: new leaders, new improvements and investments, and new community initiatives.    The year began with a devastating fire that left nearly a dozen people homeless on Jan. 8. Out of that tragedy, a new group arose that has been instrumental in aiding area residents in difficulty.    Marilyn Honig's inquiries on Facebook on how to help the victims resulted in the formation of Northern Berkshire Helping Hands, a community resource that's not only linking up people with needs to those with

Pittsfield's Plastic Bag Ban Begins With the New Year
01:44PM / Monday, December 30, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Single-use plastics will be in short supply beginning New Year's Day.    The City Council back in March passed an ordinance that bans use of thin-film plastic bags within the city effective Jan. 1.    Pittsfield retail establishments will have to utilize reusable checkout bags, recyclable paper bags, or compostable plastic bags. Thin-film, single-use plastic bags are defined as bags with a thickness of 3 mils or less; those that are thicker are considered reuseable.    The ban had been proposed in 2013 through a petition by local attorney Rinaldo Del Gallo and had been working its way through the City Council process for years. It

01:53AM / Monday, December 30, 2019

Cohen, at her final meeting as a councilor, was given a caricature as a going away gift by Council President Keith Bona. An artist, he also gave the other councilors a group drawing at a previous meeting. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council's attempt to finish out some real estate business by the end of the year came to naught on Thursday for a lack of members.    The decision to again postpone a vote on Sullivan School was a repeat of the last meeting in November when it was felt there weren't enough votes to pass.     The current council is ending its term and had hoped to deal with the issue of Sullivan School before the new City Council

@theMarket: Will This Year Be Like the Last One for Stocks?
By Bill Schmick,
03:58PM / Friday, December 27, 2019
It is that time of the year when fortune telling becomes a popular past time in the financial markets. Every Wall Street strategist releases their projections for the economy, the markets, and earnings for the New Year. What strikes me about 2020's crop of predictions is their similarity.   My own informal survey of analyst's forecasts seems to converge around a 1.8 percent-2.0 percent prediction for economic growth in the U.S. Earnings, for the most part, hover around the unchanged mark, or slightly better. These professional forecasters are looking for no more than average gains in the rate of return (ROR) for stocks based on the equity benchmark index, the S&P 500. What

03:41PM / Friday, December 27, 2019

LENOX, Mass. — Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum is offering a day trip to New York for an exclusive viewing of the exhibit titled "John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal" at the Morgan Library & Museum slated for Wednesday, Jan. 8.

This is a rare opportunity to view with an art specialist 53 charcoal portraits by John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), America's greatest portrait painter of his time. These drawn works of art represent a substantial, yet often overlooked, part of his practice – they number more than 750 in total - and demonstrate the same sense of immediacy, psychological insight and mastery of light and shade that animate

The Independent Investor: Investors Ignore Impeachment
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Thursday, December 26, 2019
Abuse of power, obstruction of Congress; these are accusations that ordinarily evoke sharp emotions among Americans. Yet, the financial markets have barely blinked, if they have paid attention at all. Why?   The short answer is that investors have done the numbers and calculated that Donald Trump has less than a snowball's chance in hell of being impeached by the U.S. Senate. For those who don't follow the actual political process of impeachment, once the Congress voted to impeach the president, the next step is up to the Senate. They are required to hold a trial to decide whether to remove him from office. A two-thirds majority is required to convict and then remove the
