By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:57AM / Sunday, February 03, 2019
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Select Board has charged a seven-person committee with developing recommendations to help expand and enhance recreational opportunities in the town.   Following the model of the 2015 Economic Development Committee, the ad hoc Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee is being asked to develop a report by winter or early spring 2020.   Select Board Chairwoman Anne O'Connor, who will serve on the Parks and Rec panel, said the idea grew out of discussions at the board's November retreat.   "It came from a sense held by all of us that our parks are a little, sometimes incoherent, a little sometimes neglected," O'Connor said at

@theMarket: The Fed Finds Religion
By Bill Schmick,
09:26AM / Saturday, February 02, 2019
After two years of tightening monetary policy, the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank signaled this week that it was time to put their monetary tightening program on hold. The stock market soared in celebration.   As we closed out the month of January, stocks are gaining. The October-December declines that culminating in the "Christmas Eve Massacre," which were the worst in 80 years, are rapidly disappearing. Investors who were smart enough to hold fast should be made whole again by the end of this quarter, if not before.   That does not mean that the volatility that has beset the markets of late will fade away. Quite the contrary, I expect the wild swings in the stock market to

03:59AM / Friday, February 01, 2019

Residents were encouraged to leave their comments on sticky notes: green for aspects of the plan they like and red for aspects of the plan they did not. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — More than 100 residents Wednesday night braved the winter weather to attend a MassDOT meeting on the future of Route 43.   Many told the state agency that one of the big problems on the state highway is, fittingly, winter weather.   "The southern section, which you're just repaving, has huge drainage problems," one resident said during a wide-ranging discussion about the plans for the state highway, also called Green River Road. "I'm alarmed that it's just going to be

'Serenity': It's all Just a Big
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:52PM / Thursday, January 31, 2019
Viewing director Steven Knight's "Serenity, a film consumed with the notion that things aren't what they appear to be, I was uncomfortably reminded that I don't like to figure things out. I don't do puzzles, don't fancy mystery yarns unless they're old classics or approach the inventiveness of "The Usual Suspects" (1995), and if you ask me when train B will pass Train A if both leave their original locations at so and so time, I'll excuse myself, lie that I'll be right back, and head for the veranda for something less complicated, like a cocktail and maybe a few of those little hot dog hors d' oeuvres.   So, if you're looking for


The Independent Investor: Europe, the World's Sick Sibling
By Bill Schmick,
12:08PM / Thursday, January 31, 2019
The European Community is beset by worries. Brexit, trade threats, a slowing Chinese economy, and internal politics at home have all conspired to slow growth, employment, and positive sentiment.   This year, the EU will be lucky to see 1.5 percent GDP growth. In fact, the International Monetary Fund reduced their overall forecast this week for global growth largely as a result of poor performance out of Europe. Europe's powerhouse, Germany, saw its growth for 2019 cut by 0.6 percent because of anemic consumption and weak industrial production data.    Italy, one of the problem children of the EU, saw its growth forecasts cut by 0.4 percentage points as a result of weak
