Williams Women's Soccer Defends Its National Title
10:35PM / Saturday, December 01, 2018
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Williams kept a 1-1 tied game with Middlebury throughout regulation, then defeated the Panthers 3-2 in penalty kicks to claim the national title. The win gives the Ephs back-to-back national championship titles and third in the past four years.   Williams got on the board first with a goal from Aspen Pierson just under 28 minutes into the first half.

@theMarket: Markets Hope for Trade Breakthrough
By Bill Schmick,
05:13PM / Friday, November 30, 2018
This Saturday evening, Donald Trump and Xi Jinping will sit down to dinner in Buenos Aires at the G-20 conference. Investors are holding their breath, hoping that the two might come to some agreement that could lower tensions and avert a full-out trade war between the U.S. and China.   Given past rhetoric and the president's mercurial temperament, anything could happen. Xi Jinping and his advisors, after years of dealing with Washington, believe if they just hang tough and wait Trump out, the outcome will be "business as usual" on their terms.   Unfortunately, Wall Street and the media have created another binary event out of the dinner. Either there is a

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
01:02PM / Friday, November 30, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Iconic Williams College coach Renzie Lamb was remembered Friday as a man who met everyone on their own terms.   Lamb, 81, who died Nov. 17, was buried in Williams' cemetery after a Liturgy of Christian Burial at the college's Thompson Memorial Chapel.   Celebrant the Rev. Michael C. Lillpopp, paster of Sts. Patrick & Raphael Parish, told the standing-room crowd of mourners that Lamb was a Renaissance man, as adept at discussing history and art as he was coaching young men and women, as he did for 35 years.   "At most colleges, the coaches and professors don't normally associate with one another," Lillpopp said.

Williamstown Planning Board Fields Questions on Housing Bylaw
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:01AM / Friday, November 30, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Several of the residents who attended Tuesday's Planning Board meeting have, for months, been following the board's discussion about a possible bylaw amendment to open up opportunities for accessory dwelling units or ADUs.   But some were much newer to the conversation, including one who asked why the board is looking at changing the bylaw in the first place.   "I don't understand why we want to turn it into a split-level town," Andrew Munzer told the board. "It's the wrong direction. I think we should stick with what's made this town great for hundreds of years and not deviate in a way that's going to split up all

The Independent Investor: Sustainability Investing and Millennials
By Bill Schmick,
05:10PM / Thursday, November 29, 2018
The demand for sustainability investments is growing. Companies that offer measurable social and environmental impacts that address issues like world hunger, climate risk, poverty and access to health care, seem like a good investment for those socially-minded. Finding companies that also provide a good financial return at the same time is not so easy.   Sustainability investing is different from the decades-old trend called "social investing." Generally, social investments are those that bet on solar power, clean water, or the avoidance of "sin stocks" such as tobacco, guns or liquor companies. Most of these areas were not viable investments without a great deal of

The staff members assembled the beds and later painted them. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — There are a lot of challenges for a family just moving into stabilized housing.   Perhaps one of the most overlooked challenges is the cost of providing beds for the children. That's why in 2012 the Massachusetts Coalition for Homeless started a "Build a Bed" program aimed to have corporate sponsors build free beds for children across the state.   "When you think of helping a child succeed, sometimes the last thing you think of is what are they sleeping in. We were so happy to identify a need such as this," said Program Director Tina Giarla.   "The expense
