By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
11:42AM / Friday, March 29, 2019
 

ADAMS, Mass. — Adam's Hometown Market opened to a welcoming crowd on Friday morning.

A month ago, the grocery store's aisles were empty and shelves bare as Big Y ended its tenure. In just 18 days, the Connecticut grocery chain had stepped, freshened the entire building, hired many of the former workers and filled the store with new products. 

"Welcome back," one woman called out to employees as customers clustered around the deli counter. 

It was 50 years and a month from when the building had first opened as Adams Supermarket, just the latest in the Wineberg's family grocery chain that proudly bore the town's name. 

It was, state Rep.

'Gloria Bell': For Whom the Loneliness Tolls
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:16PM / Thursday, March 28, 2019
My mother was beautiful. Not just pretty, but beautiful. At family gatherings, it was inevitably brought up: Who is more beautiful, Dora or Elizabeth Taylor? It was Mom's cue to blush, although she kept serving and rarely sat down.    Intentionally or not, her splendor impacted nearly every aspect of our lives. Whether taken to the shoe store or a visit to the doctor, it was a given: A beautiful woman had just walked into the room. People like beautiful. It fascinates them, whether wondering what it must be like to be beautiful or intellectually deliberating just what it is that makes one beautiful.   Here's why I raise the subject. Inarguably beautiful Julianne Moore

The Independent Investor: The Business of Baseball
By Bill Schmick,
04:04PM / Thursday, March 28, 2019
Attendance is down, as is viewership, as we head into the 2019 season. Major League Baseball is hoping some rule changes will turn around the decline. Will it be enough, and does it matter anyway?   Defenders of the game argue that last season's declines were to be expected. Television ratings for all sporting events have been declining for years.  But TV ratings in the new world of digital streaming are not what they used to be. There just isn't a good way to capture this new viewership data.   However, there is no way of denying that no World Series (the most popular of baseball's games) has been able to beat the average of 20 million viewers per game that was
