Pittsfield's Plastic Bag Ban Begins With the New Year
01:44PM / Monday, December 30, 2019
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Single-use plastics will be in short supply beginning New Year's Day.    The City Council back in March passed an ordinance that bans use of thin-film plastic bags within the city effective Jan. 1.    Pittsfield retail establishments will have to utilize reusable checkout bags, recyclable paper bags, or compostable plastic bags. Thin-film, single-use plastic bags are defined as bags with a thickness of 3 mils or less; those that are thicker are considered reuseable.    The ban had been proposed in 2013 through a petition by local attorney Rinaldo Del Gallo and had been working its way through the City Council process for years. It

SALEM, Mass. — The Williams College Ephs (4-4) fell narrowly in their return to action on Sunday afternoon, as the Endicott Gulls (8-3) won 88-85 to open the Salem State Holiday Tournament.   The Gulls went 6-for-6 from the free throw line in the final 25 seconds.   Spencer Spivy hit his second 3-pointer of the game to put the Ephs ahead 14-9 five minutes into the contest. After the Ephs built a 20-14 lead, the Gulls tied the game at 20 with 8:45 to play in the half, prompting a Williams timeout.    With the shot clock winding down, Nate Karren kicked it out to Cole Prowitt-Smith way behind the arc, who nailed the three to hand the Ephs a 33-26 lead with 3:23 to go

03:29PM / Sunday, December 29, 2019
A messy mix of rain, sleet and snow is about to fall over the Berkshires, covering the last days of 2019 in an icy sheet that may make travel "impossible," according to the National Weather Service.    The NWS office in Albany, N.Y., has posted an ice storm warning for the Berkshires and northern Connecticut from 5 p.m. Sunday into 7 a.m. Tuesday.    Significant icing is expected from freezing rain, especially after midnight Sunday night. This icing may cause power outages from tree damage and travel "could be impossible. The hazardous conditions will impact the Monday morning and evening commutes," according to the NWS.    The freezing rain

Williamstown 2019 Year in Review: Top Story Was a Turf War
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
06:39AM / Saturday, December 28, 2019

The new Williams Inn also opened at the bottom of Spring Street. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The turf may be artificial, but the controversy is very, very real.   The one local issue that divided residents in the Mount Greylock Regional School District more than any other is whether the district should install an artificial turf playing field at the middle-high school.   The question has caused friction at School Committee meetings and has seen voters align themselves into two distinct camps.   On one side, some argue that: artificial turf fields are used all over the country, the commonwealth and the county North County, at Williams College, Massachusetts College of

@theMarket: Will This Year Be Like the Last One for Stocks?
By Bill Schmick,
03:58PM / Friday, December 27, 2019
It is that time of the year when fortune telling becomes a popular past time in the financial markets. Every Wall Street strategist releases their projections for the economy, the markets, and earnings for the New Year. What strikes me about 2020's crop of predictions is their similarity.   My own informal survey of analyst's forecasts seems to converge around a 1.8 percent-2.0 percent prediction for economic growth in the U.S. Earnings, for the most part, hover around the unchanged mark, or slightly better. These professional forecasters are looking for no more than average gains in the rate of return (ROR) for stocks based on the equity benchmark index, the S&P 500. What

Ventfort Hall Plans Trip to See Sargent Charcoals
03:41PM / Friday, December 27, 2019

LENOX, Mass. — Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum is offering a day trip to New York for an exclusive viewing of the exhibit titled "John Singer Sargent: Portraits in Charcoal" at the Morgan Library & Museum slated for Wednesday, Jan. 8.

This is a rare opportunity to view with an art specialist 53 charcoal portraits by John Singer Sargent (1856-1925), America's greatest portrait painter of his time. These drawn works of art represent a substantial, yet often overlooked, part of his practice – they number more than 750 in total - and demonstrate the same sense of immediacy, psychological insight and mastery of light and shade that animate

The Independent Investor: Investors Ignore Impeachment
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Thursday, December 26, 2019
Abuse of power, obstruction of Congress; these are accusations that ordinarily evoke sharp emotions among Americans. Yet, the financial markets have barely blinked, if they have paid attention at all. Why?   The short answer is that investors have done the numbers and calculated that Donald Trump has less than a snowball's chance in hell of being impeached by the U.S. Senate. For those who don't follow the actual political process of impeachment, once the Congress voted to impeach the president, the next step is up to the Senate. They are required to hold a trial to decide whether to remove him from office. A two-thirds majority is required to convict and then remove the

Guest Column: Jesus Brought Hope to the Forgotten
Guest Column,
04:25AM / Wednesday, December 25, 2019

Bishop Mitchell Rozanski   Isaiah 9: 1-6 Titus 2: 11-14 Luke 2: 1-14 During these past few months, I have noticed a very clever television commercial that has been running in the shopping preparation for Christmas. A little girl tells her parents that she wants to be a princess. The parents go out and search for all sorts of toys that will satisfy the girl's wishes. After they finish all that shopping, the girl then tells her parents that she wants to be a movie producer!   The store that is advertising implies that they have all the toys to make every child's wish come true. As I viewed that commercial a few times, I reflected on the message that
