03:56AM / Friday, October 12, 2018

Town manager Jason Hoch addresses the school building committee on Wednesday at Williamstown Elementary School.  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Town Manager Jason Hoch on Wednesday explained to the Mount Greylock School Building Committee his rationale for assessing permitting fees on the district's $64 million addition/renovation project, including his words in an oft-quoted December 2015 email.   At issue is about $154,000 billed to the regional school district for permitting. In fact, the town is owed about $295,000, based on its standard permit fee schedule, but about half of that has been passed through to subcontractors on the school building project.   Hoch

'A Star is Born': Yet Again
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:21PM / Thursday, October 11, 2018
With four "A Star is Born" iterations in the books and probably many more to come — expect one every ensuing generation — the universality of the tale is a given. Until some bold director makes a woman the established star, and the up-and-comer a male, the formula remains the same. He's a major star flirting with the decadence that comes of success, with booze and/or substance abuse the tell-tale sign of his looming, downward spiral. She's the talented, innocent and grateful ingénue he discovers.   I remember how surprised I was in my youth when I found there was an earlier version of another, oft-remade movie of which I was particularly enamored. I

How Can You Become a 'Sustainable' Investor?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:19PM / Wednesday, October 10, 2018

Your values are important to you – and so are your investments. But you don't have to keep these two parts of your life separate if you pursue sustainable investing.

If you haven't heard of this term, you might know it by other names: socially responsible investing, values-based investing and environmental, social and governance (ESG) investing. Essentially, sustainable investing incorporates non-financial or indirect financial considerations, specifically environmental concerns (climate change, renewable energy, water scarcity), social concerns (human rights, product safety or liability) and governance issues (corporate behavior, executive compensation, lobbying and so on).

Flu Shot: Get the Vaccine to Protect You And Those Around You
By Dr. Everett Lamm,
12:12PM / Wednesday, October 10, 2018

With flu season around the corner, your health care providers, employers, pharmacists and others are sounding the annual reminder: "Get your annual flu shot." We encourage this for you — and for the people around you, too. We see evidence every year of the benefits of the flu vaccine, and we also see the risks of skipping it.

The flu vaccine has dramatic impacts on public health. However, since strains of the flu may vary from year to year, the vaccine must be received annually. Although the vaccine doesn't guarantee a flu-free winter and perfect health, medical research has convincingly shown that the flu shot reduces flu severity and reduces sick visits,
