'The Art of Racing in the Rain': Tearjerker & Tail-Wagger
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
09:19PM / Thursday, August 15, 2019
'Despite a plot-slowing traffic jam midway and the accumulation of saddening clouds in the later laps that almost turns matters into a dirge, director Simon Curtis's "The Art of Racing in the Rain" featured enough enthusiasm and albeit over-the-top sweetness to win me over.    Hey, it's about auto racing and dogs.   All that was needed to fully complete my world would be a healthy portion about food. Preferably unhealthy food. But alas, as this PG-rated tale about ambition, love and devotion unabashedly instructs, you can't have everything.   Meet Enzo — his namesake being Enzo Ferrari, of course — the golden retriever pup who wins

By Stephen Dankner, Guest Column
11:41AM / Wednesday, August 14, 2019

Submitted by Edward Jones,
10:22AM / Wednesday, August 14, 2019

As a business owner, you can't afford to ignore your competition. You can't afford to miss out on the trends affecting your industry. You can't afford to alienate customers. And here's one more item to add to the list: You can't afford not to create a retirement plan for yourself.

Of course, you might think that, one day, you will simply sell your business and live off the proceeds. But selling a business isn't always simple, and there's no guarantee you will receive enough to pay for a comfortable retirement – which is why you should strongly consider creating a retirement plan now.

Here are some of the most widely used plans:

By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:14AM / Monday, August 12, 2019

The question came through a bullhorn from Patrick Quinn, a volunteer with the Willilamstown Historical Museum, which on Sunday hosted its second annual Hay Day fair.

The crowd of several hundred people cheered back, but Quinn kept going.

"I can't hear you!" he yelled.

A bigger cheer came from the crowd of families and other visitors who came out to the museum's home on New Ashford Road for an old-fashioned small-town country fair with traditional and colonial games for all ages, like sack races and egg-drop races, craft demonstrations, a bake sale, a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction, pony rides and a
