@theMarket: Trump's $50 Billion in Chinese Tariffs Trashes Markets
By Bill Schmick,
10:46AM / Saturday, June 16, 2018
Investors waited all week for President Trump's verdict. On Friday, he did not disappoint his followers. He decided to move ahead with plans to slap $34 billion in tariffs on Chinese imports. Stock markets worldwide fell on the news as investors await a Chinese response.   And China will respond. Chinese trade officials have already outlined their planned retaliation. China will match Trump's 25 percent tariff on 818 products by doing the same on 106 American goods worth about $50 billion.   We can expect an accelerating war of tit-for-tat tariffs in the weeks ahead. For example, the United States Trade Representative plans to add an additional 284 Chinese imports to their

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Educators in the regional school district are asking the Transition Committee to honor existing contractual wage increases, which officials have decided to forego as three separate contracts are merged into one.   Mount Greylock Educators Association Vice President Marty Walter said the teachers' unions feel it is "unacceptable" not to honor those wages and accused school administrators of being unwilling to negotiate.   The Transition Committee, made up of members of the three expiring school

Theater Review: Love Versus Broadway at the Barrington Stage
By Nancy Salz, Special to iBerkshires
09:48AM / Friday, June 15, 2018

Three generations of Cavendish women face a conundrum: Should they marry and leave their stage careers behind? Or forsake love for a life on the Great White Way?

In song, dance and frequently hilarious performances, love and Broadway are the heart of their conflicts in the world premiere comedic musical "The Royal Family of Broadway" at Barrington Stage Company. While not always perfect, the production is huge, dazzling and great fun.

William Finn (music and lyrics) and Rachel Sheinkin (book) took on a daunting challenge when they decided to turn the Richard Greenberg adaptation of the 1930 play by George S. Kaufman and Edna Ferber into a musical. There are 10 major characters:

Mount Greylock Regional Restores April Break to School Calendar
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Friday, June 15, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional Transition Committee has rejected the superintendent's recommendation to shorten the April vacation.   Superintendent Kimberley Grady proposed a school calendar for the 2018-19 school year that replaced the spring vacation week with two long weekends. Grady was worried that extra snow days could put the district in a position where it wouldn't have the required 185 days of school.   With the full April break and five snow days, the school year would end on June 25. Classes must be over by June 30 and in this case, with weekends, that would be the June 28.    "This was all we really had. There are not

'Ocean's 8': What's Bad for the Gander is Bad for the Goose
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
03:42PM / Thursday, June 14, 2018
Watching director Gary Ross' "Ocean's 8," starring Sandra Bullock in a feminine spinoff of the "Ocean's 11" (1960) franchise, I couldn't help but get cynically philosophical. Did I somewhere along the way of reviewing movies fall into a Rip Van Winkle-like sleep, only to awake and find that stealing obscene amounts of valuables was now not only OK, but lauded? I'm not talking politicians who'd back up their trucks to Fort Knox if they could. I refer to our unelected criminals earning mass approval at the Bijou.   Of course, there is a sliding scale of acceptability, with Robin Hood earning a 10. Shh! While a bit out of favor lately, he gave
