Rumbolt Leads MCLA Baseball in Double-Header Split
08:44PM / Saturday, March 31, 2018
WESTFIELD, Mass. --  Liam Nolan's complete game shutout and Logan Rumbolt's clutch hit lifted the Trailblazers to a 2-0 win over Framingham State in the MASCAC opener for both teams.   The Rams earned a split by taking game two in convincing fashion as they defeated MCLA 10-5.   The Trailblazers are now 7-6 overall and 1-1 in league play. The Rams are 8-9 overall and also sit at 1-1 in the MASCAC.   Game One Nolan was outstanding in improving to 2-0 on the season in the opener. He scattered four hits and struck out seven Ram hitters to collect the win.    Over the first five innings, neither offense could muster anything up as the starting pitchers were

Cedar Waxwings Bring Golden Glow to Churchyard
By Tor Hansen, Community Submission
05:12PM / Saturday, March 31, 2018

The waxwings have a distinctive mask and feathers that look like they have been dipped in paint.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Low and behold on Palm Sunday, there was a feeding flock of showy cedar waxwings feasting on weather-worn crabapples in the First Congregational churchyard here in North Adams.   What a delightful sight to behold: a finest, kind choice by the forerunners who landscaped the churchyard with several crabapple trees that bloom a profuse pink and white cavalcade of blossoms in early spring.    In addition to the beautiful bloom, the crabapple trees produce succulent fruit that serves the avian fauna, yielding nutritious energy for sustaining

@theMarket: Will April Be Better for the Markets?
By Bill Schmick,
04:36PM / Friday, March 30, 2018
It has been a tough month for stocks and February wasn't much better. Granted, it was a small price to pay for last year's great gains, but, as in life, all good things must come to an end. Will April bring more of the same for us or can we hope for something better?   Much depends on White House initiatives, "Spanky's" (the President's new nickname) tweets, and the world's response to the administration's trade war initiatives. None of the above is certain, and, as readers know by now, the markets hate uncertainty.    This quarter, both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Indexes have seen a nine-quarter win streak come to an end. As of this

The Independent Investor: Financial Planners Held to Higher Standard
By Bill Schmick,
04:13PM / Thursday, March 29, 2018
The Department of Labor's fiduciary rule looks "iffy" at best, thanks to a March court ruling. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals says the agency exceeded its authority in insisting that financial services firms act as fiduciaries when giving advice to most tax-deferred savings accounts. However, some financial advisers are ignoring the courts and are going the extra mile for their clients anyway.   Over the last couple of years, I have written several columns on this issue. A "fiduciary" is someone who puts your best interests above his own and that of his company's. It is a concept that the financial community does not want to see implemented and has gone to

'The Leisure Seeker': Two for the Road
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:09PM / Thursday, March 29, 2018
If you are of a certain age, which I am, then director Paolo Virzi's "The Leisure Seeker" is certain to resonate anywhere from sentimentally positive to depressingly negative, depending of course on how you view the last few chapters of the life experience. It is not an easy subject, especially in these overindulged times when even the closing of a favorite restaurant is reason enough for extended mourning.    Shrouded in mystery, hope, despair and every other word the poets have employed to describe the inevitable, it is, along with love, the ultimate inscrutability.   We don't even like to say it: Old Age. There, I did it. Yet the realization that it is

Letter: Bring Back the Mill Children
Letter to the Editor,
02:00PM / Thursday, March 29, 2018

To the Editor:

Well folks, this is the third communication that has been submitted raising the question of, why hasn't the return of the "Mill Children" depiction appearing on the pillars on Marshall been resurrected from the untimely paint over that was implemented by Mass MoCA?

We have been told a number of times that meetings and decisions were to occur in the attempt to bring the historic paintings back to life. Thus far, as this writer is concerned, no final meeting has taken place thus leaving the issue still unresolved. The city of North Adams needs to adopt the slogan "BRING OUR HISTORIC CHILDREN BACK, WE MISS THEM!"

PS: It would also be worthwhile for the

Hospital Advocacy Group Marks Closure Anniversary
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
08:54PM / Wednesday, March 28, 2018

Martin Greenstein, an employee and later volunteer at NARH, recalls how well everyone was treated there. 'The care that was given was beyond anything I had observed in some major New York hospitals that I worked at.' NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It hit Cindy Bird when she looked into a mirror in the ladies' room at the former North Adams Regional Hospital.    The local union representative for SEIU1199 had just walked down a hallway lined with law enforcement officers bent on preventing a sit-in to stop the hospital from locking the doors. Up until then, employees were still clinging to the hope that something, or someone, would stop the looming

Newer Investors: Don't Panic if Bear Market Returns
Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:16PM / Wednesday, March 28, 2018

If you're in your 20s or 30s, you might be starting to focus more on investing to reach your financial goals. Because of this, you also may be more attuned to moves in the financial markets.

Depending on your age, you may have only experienced the bull market of the past nine years, so you might not know what to expect – or how to respond – whenever the next bear market strikes.

Of course, just recently, you've witnessed a market correction – a drop of at least 10 percent in the major stock market indices, such as the S&P 500. This sudden plunge made big news and reminded many investors of how volatile the financial markets can be. But a full-fledged bear
