By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff

LEE, Mass. — Local school officials pressed members of the Berkshire delegation to make education funding a priority in the coming legislative year.    And the legislators urged them to keep up the pressure.    "The pressure we feel at home can translate into action at the State House," said state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, explaining that when they speak with legislative leaders, "I can go and say this is the most important issue in Pittsfield."   But while the Pittsfield representative is a firm believer in grassroots activism, she said the critical part of the equation is finding new revenue.    "We're underfunding

@theMarket: The Market's Last Quarter
By Bill Schmick,
04:29PM / Friday, September 28, 2018
Today marks the end of the third quarter for stocks in 2018. But it is the fourth quarter that will determine what kind of year it will be. Let's place our bets.   First, we should look at what could go wrong over the next three months. Tariffs probably lead the list. More of them, (although the dollar amount is minimal in the scheme of global trade), would be bad for sentiment within the global stock markets. Mid-term elections are a toss-up, but simply not knowing the outcome I count as a negative. Quarterly earnings results might also hold some risk for investors. And finally, the latest investor sentiment readings (a contrary indicator) are as high as they were back in January

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:12PM / Friday, September 28, 2018

U.S. Rep. Edward Markey said the Berkshire customers should get both stations. PITTSFIELD,  Mass. — Two flags decorated microphones at the podium in the City Hall chambers Friday morning.   One was Springfield-based WWLP Channel 22 and the other was Albany, N.Y.-based WNYT Channel 13.   One major difference between the two is that no one who lives in Berkshire County could watch the Massachusetts station on cable television to hear the press conference at Pittsfield City Hall.    Spectrum cable pulled Channel 22 from its lineup earlier this year, as well as WCVB Channel 5 out of Boston. Spectrum subscribers in the Berkshires on Friday weren't able to
