By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
03:50AM / Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Town Manager Jason Hoch displays one of the high-visibility vests the town's Council on Aging acquired for walkers and bicyclists. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board members Monday recognized the passing of longtime town official Daniel Gendron, remembering him for his dedication to the town and his willingness to make reasoned, thoughtful arguments rather than going along with the crowd.   "Dan and I didn't agree on everything, but with Dan, you always got a reciprocal agreement we were fighting for what was right for the town," Hugh Daley said.   "He never made it personal, and he never took it personally. That's something I try to

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School District on Monday closed the campus of the middle-high school to the public until some time in August as it wraps up the addition/renovation project.   With the snow-delayed end of the school year finally arriving, the district has turned the grounds over to Turner Construction and its subcontractors, who will begin demolishing the 1960s-era academic wings, redoing the parking lot and putting the finishing touches on the three-story addition where students will begin class in September.   All of the district's and middle-high school's offices have been temporarily relocated off campus according to a note

07:16PM / Monday, June 25, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire Museum has selected nine more works of art to be sold toward its goal of $55 million that museum officials say is required to secure the institution's future.    Thirteen pieces have been sold by auction or private sale. Sotheby's will be working with the museum to find private sales for seven more works and will auction two in September.    The century-old museum's decision to deaccession parts of its 40,000-piece collection was announced almost a year ago to fund a $60 million plan to modernize and update the aging institution and develop an endowment to continue its operations. Without the funds, officials say the

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:07AM / Monday, June 25, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The committee charged with overseeing the town's fire district wants to look at expansion.   Not the fire station this time, but the committee itself.   At its monthly meeting on Wednesday, the three-person Prudential Committee discussed taking steps to increase the panel to five members.   Chairman John Notsley brought the recommendation to his colleagues.   "With what's coming down the road — getting a [needs] study done and looking at a new station, there's going to be a lot of work involved," Notsley said. "I think it's prudent that we look down the road a little bit. I think adding two individuals to

@theMarket: Ignore the Noise and Profit
By Bill Schmick,
03:51PM / Friday, June 22, 2018
The world is in turmoil. The news is all bad. Trump is threatening to up the ante on tariffs. NAFTA is kaput. Our trade partners hate us. China won't back down and, if you have time to spare, you are reading about immigrant kids locked in Texas dog cages by order of the president. So why is the stock market holding up?   The fundamental reason remains the same. Under all the muck, there is and will continue to be a bid under the stock market. In past columns, I have explained why — corporate stock buybacks, M&A, higher dividends coupled with a strong economy and low-interest rates.   If you look at the technicals, which I do, every sell-off seems to stop at a

'First Reformed': An Inconvenient Proof
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
08:21PM / Thursday, June 21, 2018
It is unfortunate. But it only makes complete sense that Paul Schrader's dark and starkly truthful "First Reformed" will be one of 2018's most important movies. Whether or not you like its profoundly intense take on current events and how that intersects with the crisis of conscience Ethan Hawke's Reverend Ernst Toller is experiencing, the film is representative of its time.   Unlike in the Great Depression, when cheerful movies tried to paste things over until happy times were here again, this intense, artistic muckrake dives headlong into the tribulation. But expect no answers as we witness Reverend Toller navigate the whims, wiles and sometimes disingenuous

The Independent Investor: The Next Recession
By Bill Schmick,
05:27PM / Thursday, June 21, 2018
Over half the economists on Wall Street believe that by the end of 2020, we will experience our first economic downturn in years. If so, when might you begin to prepare for a rocky two-year period for all of us?   The good news is that we still have another year or so of stock market gains, job growth and more importantly, wage growth. As it stands, the U.S. is currently enjoying its second-longest economic expansion in history with an unemployment rate that hasn't been this low in decades. Wage growth, after languishing for years, is expected to top 3 percent by the end of 2018, while GDP could achieve greater than 3 percent this year and a further 2.5 percent next year.   So
