State Report on Transportation Planning Doesn't Neglect Rural Concerns
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
07:18AM / Sunday, January 27, 2019
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Far from the world of Big Digs and bigger traffic jams, the rural communities in the Berkshires have their own unique transportation issues.   Williamstown Select Board member Andrew Hogeland spent the last year serving on a statewide panel looking at the future of transportation and advocating to make sure rural communities are not left out of that discussion.   Take, for example, the telecommunications that are needed to facilitate rideshare services like Lyft and Uber and that, someday, will enable autonomous — i.e. driverless cars.   "Probably something like 5G will be useful for autonomous and connected cars [i.e. cars that

Life On The Teller Line: Greylock Employee Celebrates 40 Years With Company
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
06:35AM / Saturday, January 26, 2019

When GE employed some 10,000 people, the lines for the credit union were long. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Catherine Maloney's co-worker was frantically trying to ask her something.   She had just gotten into work at the credit union and didn't understand him at first and then realized that he had forgotten the alarm code.   Time ran out. Police were on the way. He put his hands on his head and walked out front of the branch to confront the police arriving with guns drawn. He wasn't happy with her then.   It's funny now.   Or how about the time when it was busy and the systems were acting up? The computer system was being overloaded and needed to be

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:14AM / Friday, January 25, 2019
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Of the 30 or so attendees at a Wednesday public forum on proposed zoning bylaw amendments, most were well acquainted with the issue the Planning Board hopes to bring to town meeting in May.   And most of the public comments in the more than two-hour session at Williamstown Elementary School concerned issues with which the board has been grappling for months.   Parties on both sides of a key issue acknowledged that not much was new in the debate.   "We've not had many people comment on this," Planning Board Chairwoman Amy Jeschawitz said at one point. "We've had the same handful who keep coming to our meetings to complain

The Independent Investor: The IRS Has Its Hands Full This Year
By Bill Schmick,
05:05PM / Thursday, January 24, 2019
The government's partial shutdown has everyone on edge this year. Despite assurances from the powers that be, many taxpayers are concerned that their tax returns won't be processed on time. Should you be worried?   One misconception many have is that the Internal Revenue Service is closed. Not true, the IRS remains open, despite having no budget since Dec. 21, 2018. The agency is running under a contingency plan, which includes operating with only 12 percent of its staff.   Usually, you can e-file your returns in late January, and that remains doable. The IRS announced it will be accepting 2018 tax returns starting January. 28, 2019. They also said they would be issuing

'Stan & Ollie': 'Old Fat & Skinny'
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
12:58PM / Thursday, January 24, 2019
"Stan & Ollie," director Jon S. Baird's lovingly responsible biopic about Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy, the world's most famous comedy duo, convivially invites you to bask in its embracing notions of love, friendship, loyalty and sense of duty.    The passion is such that, feeling protective of the boys, I couldn't help fantasize that if I should become king I'd make it a law that, once the talent in question was universally adored by the public, the enthusiasm was not to diminish, unless of course said entertainer either colluded with the Russians, repeatedly lied to the American public or was disgustingly narcissistic.   Of course, Stan and
