'Mother!': Oh, Brother!
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
05:22PM / Saturday, September 23, 2017
Fearing that I might be scarred for life after seeing Darren Aronofsky's "Mother!" I am happy to relate that slowly but surely the grotesque concepts and visions of this postmodern horror film are dissipating from my fragile and offended psyche. I mean, I am safe, aren't I? Hopefully it's not part of a grander trick.    This is sinister stuff, intentionally as well as through the error of its haughty self-indulgence. Oh, dear reader be cautious. It starts out with intriguing eeriness ... even a bit Hitchcockian. No offense, Master. But that's just to suck you into its ugly movie Hell.   For sure there will be a cult following by virtue of its violent

Architect Dorrie Brooks of Jones-Whitsett presents to the Mount Greylock School Committee.   WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Mount Greylock Regional School Committee discussed two exterior improvements to the campus this week that it hopes to make in conjunction with the $64.7 million addition and renovation project under way at the junior-senior high school.   The committee agreed with its School Building Committee that a renovated parking lot should be kept in the project if contingency fees are available, and Greenfield architectural firm Jones-Whitsett presented options to redo the athletic fields at the school.   The parking lot question generated little

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Organizers of Saturday's Voices of Recovery are hoping to "flip the script on what addiction looks like."   Begun as a vigil in 2013 mourning those lost to addiction, the event has grown over the years to focus more strongly on recovery by adding a gathering and walk.

Registered Nurses Notify BMC of One-Day Strike
Staff Reports,
01:54PM / Friday, September 22, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Massachusetts Nurses Association delivered a 10-day notice to hospital management on Friday notifying it of the local bargaining unit's intent to hold a one-day unfair labor practice strike beginning at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 3, and running until 7 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 4.   Berkshire Medical Center, however, is characterizing this as a five-day work stoppage because any substitute nurses brought in are contracted for that period of time and will fill the shifts normally worked by union members.   The nurses' union and Berkshire Health Systems have been at an impasse in contract negotiations after nearly a year of talks, with the major

12:18AM / Friday, September 22, 2017

A large crowd packs the Meeting Room at Williamstown Town Hall on Wednesday. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — For the second time in three days, the four Democratic candidates for the 1st Berkshire District seat in the House of Representatives sat on the same stage to discuss the issues.   This time around, it was the Williamstown League of Women Voters hosting a forum for the candidates on the ballot for the Oct. 10 primary to face presumptive Republican nominee Christine Canning.   And as it was 48 hours earlier in Lanesborough, the four Democrats tended to agree on far more than they disagreed.

The Independent Investor: Time to Check Your Insurance Policies
By Bill Schmick,
03:35PM / Thursday, September 21, 2017
With hurricanes to the left and right of us, maybe a review of your home owner's insurance policy makes sense. You may find out that at today's real estate values, you are underinsured.   If you are like me, the last time you visited the insurance subject was during the Katrina/Sandy hurricanes. Since then, houses in some areas have appreciated by more than 30 percent. If so, a devastating event such as the widespread destruction recently caused by Harvey in Texas and Irma in Florida could really decimate what is probably your most valuable asset.   Given the fact that hurricanes seem to be sprouting up all over the place, if you have been spared thus far doesn't mean

HD Reynolds in Cheshire carries a full line ot Ariens snowblowers.

If you're like most of us, you probably used your snow thrower a lot last winter. But then, winter finally came to an end, and you could put your snow thrower away.

If you had fuel in the gas tank at that time and haven't thought about it since, you may be in for an unpleasant surprise when you want to use it again.

Unless you used a fuel stabilizer that is specifically formulated to deal with the ethanol in today's gasoline, or drained the fuel tank and carburetor completely, your snow thrower may not start when you need it this winter. Today's gasoline tends to go stale fairly quickly.
