Williamstown Planning Board Grapples With Accessory Dwelling Unit Issue
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:34AM / Friday, August 17, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Planning Board on Tuesday debated some of the thorny issues that likely will define its conversation about a potential proposal to amend the town's zoning ordinances.   In the spring, faced with intense opposition from a vocal group of residents, the board abandoned a proposal to implement changes that would have eased zoning restrictions and created more flexibility in residential zones.   At the time, the members of the board committed to continuing the conversation after May's town election, and, joined by two new members, it has done just that this summer.   On Tuesday, the planners spent two hours going point-by-point through a

The Independent Investor: Turmoil in Turkey
By Bill Schmick,
04:28PM / Thursday, August 16, 2018
Turkey, a country that represents about 1 percent of the world's gross domestic product, has suddenly become a cause of concern for investors worldwide. Both developed and emerging financial markets have plunged over the last week as that country's currency plummeted. Fear that this tiny country's problems could somehow spark a global financial contagion has everyone on edge.   Those fears are unfounded. There will be no "contagion."  What is happening in Turkey is truly a "Tempest in a Teapot" that bears little resemblance to the crisis in Greece several years ago. Yet, over the last week, Turkey's currency, the lira, fell to record lows,

'BlacKkKlansman': There's no Politics like Show Business
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:35PM / Thursday, August 16, 2018
I doubt I've ever reviewed a movie more important than Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman."   Greater? Most likely. Although, in astutely fashioning his heartfelt SOS about America's burgeoning racist threat, Spike Lee is no slouch in the art department, either. This scintillating film based on a true story about how, via a white counterpart, Afro-American cop Ron Stallworth infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan, wouldn't be nearly as shocking in its appeal to our better angels were it not such a fine achievement in cinema.   Will it win Best Picture? A mere bag of shells. If Lee's magnum opus proves to be this generation's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and

By Stephen Dankner, Guest Column

Cellist Yo-To Ma returns to Tanglewood on Sunday, Aug. 19.

Come late August, classical aficionados are grateful for the cornucopia of musical riches the Boston Symphony Orchestra bestows to rapt audiences within the incomparably bucolic setting that is Tanglewood. Many of those superlative concerts will reside in our collective memory for a long time.

During this penultimate week of the Tanglewood Music Festival, the spotlight will focus on a range of classical fare in varied genres: from chamber and solo piano music by Beethoven, Brahms, Britten and Mahler to symphonic works by Beethoven, Copland, Bartók and Shostakovich.

Candidates Double Down on Talking Points in DA Debate In Becket
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
01:12AM / Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Candidate Andrea Harrington says what she brings is the ability to inspire change in an office she doesn't believe has been serving the community well enough. BECKET, Mass. — Rebecca Moulton had a restraining order against her then-boyfriend David Vincent in 2009 and she had left the apartment the pair shared.   Later she was found beaten to death in that apartment.   Paul Caccaviello was the first assistant district attorney at the time and took the lead prosecution and he kept coming back to one question, "why was she there?"   And the answer was because Vincent had threatened her pet bird.    Vincent was ultimately convicted of the

Time to Put Excess Cash to Work?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:15PM / Tuesday, August 14, 2018

You’ll always want to base your investment decisions on your own needs and goals. But there may be times when you might consider adjusting your portfolio because of risks and opportunities. Now may be one of those times. 

Here’s some background: In recent months, the Federal Reserve has raised short-term interest rates several times, and given its generally favorable outlook on the economy, it has indicated it may continue bumping up interest rates gradually over the next year or so. The Fed doesn’t control long-term interest rates, but these rates often follow the lead of short-term movements. However, longer-term rates haven’t yet risen as much as
