MacDonald to Step Down as Principal at Mount Greylock
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:46AM / Friday, January 31, 2020
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Mount Greylock Principal Mary MacDonald surprised many in the school community this week by announcing that she will be stepping down this summer from the post she has held since 2013.   But the move came as no surprise to her boss.   "With her being at the helm in everything we've been through — regionalization, the building project — with the hours that were put in … last year, when we had an English position open, Mary talked to me about stepping down at that point," Mount Greylock Regional School District Superintendent Kimberley Grady said this week.   But MacDonald agreed to stay in the principal's chair

'Oscar & The Greatest Movie that Might Never get Made'
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:06PM / Thursday, January 30, 2020
Mrs. O'Shaughnessy, my landlady lo these many years, knocked on my door. "Telephone downstairs for you, Mr. Goldberger. I think it's that same nasty man who called you last year at Oscar time. Oh, 'tis a bad business, I fear."    Mrs. O'Shaughnessy, who prided herself on only letting her rooms to critics, took a personal interest in my career. I followed her downstairs to the foyer where, before I picked up the dangling receiver, she informed, "Lamb stew tonight. Oh, and Miss Chalmers will be returning from her librarians' convention."   "Hello, Goldberger here."   "That you, Iceberger?" came the inherently

The Independent Investor: ESG and the World of Investment
By Bill Schmick,
04:24PM / Thursday, January 30, 2020
Over the last few years, investments that focus on environmental, social, and governance issues, or ESG, have been confused with socially responsible investing or SRI. There is a big difference between the two investment styles.   The simplest way to understand the differences between the two is the profit motive. ESg investments are focused on making money as a primary objective. They do so by identifying specific risks or opportunities now and in the future and investing accordingly. SRI investors, on the other hand, are willing to forego profits in companies that do not meet their ethical standards. They value ethics more than profits in the investment world.   For example, if

Weekend Report: No Snowstorm, But a Groundhog and a Game
02:16PM / Thursday, January 30, 2020

Does Punxsutawney Phil like football?

With the Super Bowl falling on Groundhog Day this year, we here at iBerkshires got to wondering if, instead of asking the animal to predict how much more winter we are in for, we ask him to predict who will win the big game?

Because, let's face it, winter officially remains through March 18 whether we like it or not - and sometimes in reality it drags on even longer in these parts, and we see snow on Mother's Day. While there was talk earlier this week of a big Nor'easter this weekend to make it a white Super Bowl, the storm appears to be going out to see, and we might only see some flurries this weekend, with temperatures right around

Are You a Mindful Investor?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:07AM / Thursday, January 30, 2020

Recently, we have seen an increased interest in mindfulness, although the concept itself is thousands of years old. Essentially, being mindful means you are living very much in the present, highly conscious of your thoughts and feelings.

However, being mindful doesn't mean acting on those thoughts and feelings – it's just the opposite. With mindfulness, your decision-making is based on cognitive skills and a rational perspective, rather than emotions. As such, mindfulness can be quite valuable as you make investment decisions.

Two of the most common emotions or tendencies associated with investing are fear and greed. Let's see how they can affect investors'

All stuffed up? It might not be a cold. It might be the air in your home
10:53AM / Thursday, January 30, 2020

Do you have itchy eyes and a stuffy nose when you go home? It might not be just a cold. Your air quality might be to blame.

Indoor air can be between 200 percent and 500 percent more polluted than outdoor air, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, leading to symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes, postnasal drip, headaches, coughing, itching, nasal congestion, runny nose, fatigue and sneezing. And since people spend 90 percent of their day indoors, breathing approximately 36 pounds of air per day, that's a lot of polluted air to handle.

Ironically, as homes get more energy-efficient, the issue of indoor air pollution has become worse, the EPA said, because these tight

Medicare For All Bill Slowly Building Support in Massachusetts
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
04:06AM / Monday, January 27, 2020
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — There's a group working hard to make Massachusetts the Saskatchewan of the United States.    State Rep. Lindsay Sabadosa, 1st Hampshire District, sees the potential for the Bay State to follow the Canadian province's groundbreaking example in 1962 of being the first to provide single-payer health care to its citizens.   "Health-care costs are rising by 3 percent every year ... we know we're in an untenable situation where health care costs keep rising, where people are paying more and more every year," she told more than three dozen people gathered at the Tavern on the A on Thursday night. "We need to really come up with
