@theMarket: Record Highs and More to Come?
By Bill Schmick,
04:03PM / Friday, September 21, 2018
The Dow and the S&P 500 Indexes made record highs this week. That's right, we broke the levels of January and we closed out the week holding these new higher levels. So much for the bear's prediction of a 5-7 percent pullback.   Over two weeks ago, when I published my last column, I wrote that most of the Wall Street community was expecting a pullback. I warned readers "that when the pack is leaning one way, you should be looking the other way. I say stay invested, look beyond a month or two, and prosper by the end of the year."   OK, in hindsight, that was sage advice, but now what? You aren't paying me the big bucks to tell you about the past. Do we

'White Boy Rick': The Wild, Wild Midwest
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
12:12PM / Friday, September 21, 2018
My dad was a bench seat philosopher who, while a man of measured words, occasionally liked to opine from behind the wheel of our '51 Buick Roadmaster, the one with the Fireball 8 engine.   I look back at it as our quality time. Maybe it was a quick trip to Sears to buy some roofing material, or to get me some White Castle sliders on a night when my mom was just too tired to cook. Or perhaps it was my tutelage entirely planned. Looking through the windshield, Daniel Goldberger explained the passing pageant of humanity.   It could be a little man walking with a very tall woman: "See, there's someone for everyone."   And in a similar point of positivism that

The Independent Investor: Dogs and Their Cars
By Bill Schmick,
04:50PM / Thursday, September 20, 2018
Pet ownership in America is well over 50 percent. Nine out of 10 of these owners view their pet as part of the family. As such, dollars spent on traditional pet ownership areas such as food, veterinary needs and boarding have expanded to include things like exercise and travel. For more and more Americans, that trend has grown to include what cars we purchase.   This hit home for me recently when my wife and I began discussing our next automobile purchase or lease. In times past, our decision may have been based on what vehicles provided the best fuel mileage or winter safety in snow and ice conditions. But this year, it was all about what car would be most appropriate for our


Letter: Donate Your Empty Deposit Bottles & Cans
Letter to the Editor,
04:00PM / Thursday, September 20, 2018

To the Editor:

Here is another way to show your support for the Elizabeth Freeman Center: Take and donate your deposit bottles and cans to the Northern Berkshire Container Redemption Center located at 1000 Massachusetts Ave in North Adams, at the corner of Protection Ave, and tell the helpful people at the counter that you wish to donate the proceeds to the Elizabeth Freeman Center.

The other cool thing about making this small, regular donation is that you do not have to empty your boxes and bags and place your cans and bottles in trays: You can immediately leave and NBCRC will do it for you and count them and credit the Elizabeth Freeman account. (A small amount will also benefit the
