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

Guest Column: Jesus Brought Hope to the Forgotten

Bishop Mitchell Rozanski   Isaiah 9: 1-6 Titus 2: 11-14 Luke 2: 1-14 During these past few months, I have noticed a very clever television commercial that has been running in the shopping preparation for Christmas. A little girl tells her parents that she wants to be a princess. The parents go out and search for all sorts of toys that will satisfy the girl's wishes. After they finish all that shopping, the girl then tells her parents that she wants to be a movie producer!   The store that is advertising implies that they have all the toys to make every child's wish come true. As I viewed that commercial a few times, I reflected on the message that

Williams Astronomy Professor Heading to India for Annular Eclipse
01:38AM / Tuesday, December 24, 2019

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Jay Pasachoff, the Field Memorial professor of astronomy at Williams College and chair of the International Astronomical Union's Working Group on Solar Eclipses, is heading to India to view a solar eclipse on Thursday, Dec. 26.

According to Pasachoff, the moon will be a little farther from Earth than average, so it will not completely cover the sun's bright disk, leaving a ring known as an annulus of bright everyday sunlight. Though up to 93 percent of the sun will be covered, to see this "annular eclipse" safely, people should still use special solar-safe filters or look at projected images. Near the maximum of the eclipse, images will be

By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
03:28PM / Sunday, December 22, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The subject of this "Veterans Spotlight" feature is an unequivocal example of the Greatest Generation.    We met at a local coffee shop when his World War II veteran's hat caught my attention.    At 96 years of age, he is kind, considerate, gracious and humble. Ralph Zanna served his country bravely in the Army from 1942 to 1946 in the European Theater. Born in Pittsfield, he enlisted right after high school and was sent to basic training at Fort Sampson in New York.   Pvt. Zanna was initially sent to North Africa and was there for about four months. He then was sent to Normandy about two weeks after the initial invasion of
