Soldier On Permanent Women Veterans Housing to Open This Winter
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
06:17AM / Saturday, November 09, 2019

Katie Doherty said she did not think she deserved the dedication but was happy to accept it on behalf of the women who work for Soldier On and the women they serve. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Soldier On supporters and stakeholders toured the Katie Doherty Veterans Village on Friday afternoon that is slated to be move-in ready in early February.    Soldier On knows the importance of having a home and with the near completion of the village for women veterans this sentiment will be accessible to all who have served in the military, not just the men.   "I was so compelled by the women I met and so compelled by their stories and what had happened to them," Soldier

@theMarket: Phase One Deal Keeps Markets Bullish
By Bill Schmick,
04:37PM / Friday, November 08, 2019
It was all about the trade deal this week. Both sides seem to want a resolution to the crippling tariffs that have sent the world's economies to the brink of recession. The relief that investors feel is reflected in the new highs we are enjoying at the moment.   I say "at the moment" because anything can change with a tweet. However, given the mounting problems of the Trump presidency, I believe he needs something positive (and fairly soon) to divert the nation's attention away from the impeachment hearings next week.   Trump appears willing to drop, or at least roll back, some (or all) of the tariffs he put in place, but he can't be seen as too

Winter Makes A (Relatively Timid) Debut in the Berkshires
12:51PM / Friday, November 08, 2019

In case you've forgotten what winter feels like, step outside today.

The highs for Friday in the Berkshires will barely reach 30 degrees, with snow flurries possibly filling the air, too. Many of us woke up this morning to snow on the ground, too: The National Weather Service out of Albany, N.Y., reported .2 inches in Great Barrington.

This weekend will be chilly but slightly warmer than Friday, with Saturday's highs in the upper 30s and Sunday reaching into the 40s.

But everyone is looking at a potential snow event next Tuesday (see the AccuWeather map below), so we here at iBerkshires.com will keep our eyes on that.

Just to jog your memory, last week saw the first National

'Motherless Brooklyn': Yes, Collusion
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:35PM / Thursday, November 07, 2019
Borrowing a smidgen of wiseacre snazziness from "The Maltese Falcon" (1941) and an acidic splash of scandal from "Chinatown" (1974), Edward Norton writes, directs and stars in the best film noir detective yarn to come down the cinema pike since "The Usual Suspects" (1995). And in the process, he probably puts himself in consideration for an Oscar via his Tourette syndrome-afflicted gumshoe, Lionel Essrog, deprived early in the doings of his only friend and mentor, Frank Minna (Bruce Willis). So, we're talking loyalty, revenge and all the stumbling blocks those corrupt powers that be will toss in Lionel's way to deter his retribution, all done to the

The Independent Investor: Fringe Benefits Important as Paycheck
By Bill Schmick,
04:31PM / Thursday, November 07, 2019
Most of us know to the penny how much we made last paycheck, but how many of us know the details of our fringe benefits? Not many, I suspect, and that is a big mistake.   Retirement benefits are available to 77 percent of private industry workers and 91 percent of state and local government employees as of March 2019, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Back in the day, offering perks to workers was a way to stand-out from your competition, but today they are essential tools of recruitment. And countless studies have shown that these benefits are a means to engage employees and increase productivity. That all sounds good on paper but in real life things may be

Take Greater Control of Your 401(k)

If your employer offers a 401(k) or similar plan, you’ve got a powerful retirement-savings tool at your disposal. And yet, how well you do with your 401(k) depends greatly on your choices and actions. What steps can you take to maximize the benefits of your plan?

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee will be asked Tuesday whether it wants to accept one of two bids to build a new central administration building for the pre-K-12 school district.   On Friday, the School Committee's Phase 1 Subcommittee reviewed the bids received for the project, which will replace offices lost when portions of the old Mount Greylock were demolished last year and provide space for public restrooms to serve the middle-high school's athletic fields.   One key issue in deciding Tuesday's question: Does the School
