'The Lion King': Reigns On
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:19PM / Thursday, July 25, 2019
Watching director Jon Favreau's spectacularly buoyant homage to the circle of life, I bemoaned not having had a little niece or nephew on loan to give me the moppet point of view. As Art Linkletter noted, kids say the darnedest things, and a quote from Taylor or Max would have at least facilitated an opening paragraph. Hey, I'd of credited them.    But then, as "The Lion King's" joyous, action-filled and altruistic wisdom unreeled before my consistently amazed eyes, it came to me. It was a Ponce de León of the mind. Blown away by the seamlessly elegant, completely infatuating majesty of the special effects, the eight-year-old in me was, for 118 engaged

The Independent Investor: Make Vietnam Great Again?
By Bill Schmick,
05:10PM / Thursday, July 25, 2019
Funny things happen when our government starts tinkering with the economy in a big way. Unpredictable results, unintended consequences, and confusion often result. U.S. tariffs on China is a case in point.   Now to hear it from the White House, slapping tariffs on imports from China is going to change the entire equation of how companies do business. As it becomes more expensive to import from China, Donald Trump promised that other foreign countries were going to flock to the U.S. creating more jobs, more tax revenues, and generally become a big part of "making the U.S. great again."   So far, the president is half right. Over 50 multinational companies have announced

Don't Chase Last Year's Mutual Fund Category Winners
Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:17PM / Wednesday, July 24, 2019

The world of mutual funds can be confusing. With more than 9,000 funds on the market, how can you choose the ones that are right for you?

One way to start is by considering the various categories of mutual funds – and there are quite a few of them: Small Cap Growth, Large Cap Growth, Large Cap Value, Diversified Emerging Markets, Foreign Large Cap Blend and more – the list is extensive, and for many people, confusing.

However, with a little study, you can understand why these funds have their names – for example, a Small Cap Growth fund will contain stocks of smaller companies thought to offer growth potential. Once you know the goals of different categories of mutual

Post 68 Ousted by Greenfield in American Legion Playoffs
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires.com Sports
12:25AM / Wednesday, July 24, 2019
WILBRAHAM, Mass. -- Things went wrong in a hurry for the Pittsfield Post 68 American Legion Baseball team in the late innings on Tuesday night.   But as his team slowly made its way into the gloaming at Spec Pond Recreation Area, coach Pat Bassi pivoted to thoughts of everything that went right in the program over the better part of a decade.   “A lot of these kids have played for me since they were 13, when I was still coaching Babe Ruth, so there’s a lot of history with us,” Bassi said after a 7-3 loss to Greenfield in the Western Massachusetts Senior Legion tournament.   “We just didn’t have it tonight.”   And Bassi knows what it is
