Tools Are Great for Father's Day – and for Investors
10:43AM / Tuesday, June 11, 2019

If you are a dad, you may well be pleased to unwrap some tools as Father's Day gifts. Of course, it might be a stereotype that all men are handy at repairs; women certainly can be every bit as good when it comes to building and fixing things. In fact, the construction process is valuable for anyone to learn – and the same skills that go in to creating and mending physical objects also can be applied to financial projects – such as working toward a comfortable retirement.

Teams from all over the world compete in the challenge. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Firefighters from all over will swarm Pittsfield next weekend to test their skills against each other.   The Firefighter Combat Challenge is an obstacle course that designed to test firefighters on different tasks they've had to accomplish immediately on the scene of a fire — whether than be rolling out a hose or carrying a victim.   Wearing full gear the firefighters will race each other up a five-story tower with a hose, hoist hoses from the ground, chop I-beams, drag hoses, and carry a 175-pound "victim" 100 feet.    "It's a really good test of fitness

Clare Sheedy tells the class how the Parkland high school shooting galvanized her to action. See more photos here.  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Initially divided, now unified yet diverse, the Mount Greylock Regional School class of 2019 was graduated Saturday morning and given one last reminder of how "unspecial" it truly is.   "Because of the stigma around everyone receiving a trophy, calling any group of people unique or special these days is admittedly risky," class speaker Adam Cohen told his fellow grads. "So in response to the people itching to inform me that we aren't that special, I know. In a country of roughly 300 million people, the

'Rocketman': Godzilla vs. Elton John
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
07:25PM / Friday, June 07, 2019
I actually wanted to see the new "Godzilla." Not that I'm a big fan of the franchise. Maybe it's the kid in me or perhaps because the early stuff was so hokey and so terribly dubbed that it was entertaining. Composed of poorly constructed miniatures and the barest of plots, it was probably the hypersuspension of disbelief engendered in us moppets that stirred our imaginations more than the calamitous perpetrations themselves. My curiosity was up.    Hence, as the time approached to decide if it'd be "Rocketman" or "Godzilla" this week, the Japanese nomenclature became my recurring word of the day. "Gojira! Gojira!"

Sunshine, Warm Temps Finally Arrive in the Berkshires
06:01PM / Friday, June 07, 2019
After a rainy spring, this weekend might finally feel like summer in the Berkshires.   By the way, the feeling that it was raining all the time was not in your head: The National Weather Service out of Albany, N.Y., reports that "the last time Albany had three days or more of dry weather without a minimally a trace of precipitation was March 24-27." And preliminary data for Pittsfield shows that there was measurable rainfall nearly every day of the month of May.   But that's in the past.   The Weather Channel — which has ironically changed its logo to say "The Water Channel" because of all the rain and flooding in the South and Midwest —
