By Rebecca Dravis, iBerkshires.com Staff

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Northern Berkshire Community Coalition held its annual "needs assessment forum" on Friday to gather ideas for future forum topics.

But when the topics are narrowed down and announced, Executive Director Amber Besaw warned, the more than 100 people in the room on Friday shouldn't be surprised if they see ideas they hadn't heard mentioned in the room at The Green. That's because, for the first time, the Coalition held

Williams Women's Tennis Hosts Morehouse Invitational
08:48PM / Sunday, September 15, 2019
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The Williams College women's tennis team closed out the Lindsay Morehouse Invitational Sunday with a bevy of singles matches against Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Middlebury College.   The Invitational follows a round-robin format where no team is eliminated, so as to give the players as much court time as possible. The namesake for the Invitational is 2000 Williams graduate Lindsay Morehouse, one of three Williams Alumni to perish in the Sept. 11 terror attacks.   Katherine Orgielwicz was one of the bright spots for the Ephs, winning her singles match easily against RPI's Rani Jones by a score of 6-0, 6-1. Maya Jamroz, pushed her match to

Distillers See Fertile Ground for Spirits in the Berkshires
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
06:02AM / Sunday, September 15, 2019

Matt Brogan and Katherine Hand began their cidery in a closet in Brooklyn; now they're setting up in the mill next to Riley. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Two sets of artisan distillers from different parts of the county are setting up shop in a renovated mill along the so-called "Cultural Corridor."   Ryan Max Riley was looking for something different when he brought his rum distillery to Greylock Works from the high mountains of Colorado.   "None of this was even designed when I moved in," he said recently from his small space within the massive former textile mill.  "I had no idea what it would look like. But I trusted Sal and Karla ... I

@theMarket: Investors Discover Value Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
05:10PM / Friday, September 13, 2019
Value stocks, those equities that have fallen out of favor, have made a comeback this week. These underpriced orphans have become the new darlings of Wall Street, while high-flyers (think software and some tech) have sold off. What does this say about the markets?   The short answer is that we have more room to run. It means, in my opinion, that we will reach and break historical highs in the U.S. averages and that we should have fairly smooth sailing into October. If, at that point, there are breakthroughs in the trade issue and the Federal Reserve Bank cuts interest rates, we could see the markets continue climbing. If, on the other hand, Trump trashes Chinese exports again and/or

The Independent Investor: Europe Throws in the Towel
By Bill Schmick,
07:39PM / Thursday, September 12, 2019

The European Central Bank (ECB) announced a major new stimulus package on Thursday. A key interest rate was reduced, and a new bond-buying program was announced, amounting to $22 billion per month. In the past, those efforts would have been enough to boost the European economy, but will it be enough this time around?

It is not as if we haven't seen this before. Through the years, ever since the Financial Crisis of 2009, the ECB, as well as other central banks around the world, have stimulated their economies to avoid recession, or something worse. The problem is that monetary policy can only do so much before central banks find themselves "pushing on a string."

The ECB is

'Before You Know It': Wherein the Critic Bemoans ...
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
12:32PM / Thursday, September 12, 2019
Wherein the Critic Bemoans the Vanishing of Local Moviehouses, Extolls the Virtues of Independent Films, Makes the World Safe for Democracy and Sings an Homage to the Family — Leo Tolstoy, "Anna Karenina."   This quote came to mind as I watched director-writer Hannah Pearl Utt's "Before You Know It," a charmingly engaging dramedy with a screwball slant that teaches a life lesson or two while touching our hearts and tickling our funny bones. Besides, I always wanted to use that axiom.   The story is brainy, sophisticated and bereft of gratuitous violence. So don't expect to find it at the highway multiplex. It's about two sisters who discover a
