Adams Great War Veteran Made Sure Others Not Forgotten
By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
01:32AM / Sunday, November 11, 2018
ADAMS, Mass. — World War I veteran Roy Carpenter not only served his country overseas but also when he returned home.   Local historian Eugene Michalenko said Carpenter was one of the nearly 140 soldiers from Adams who served during the final months of World War I, and like his fellow National Guardsmen in Company M, he was excited to go.     "Oh definitely," he said. "They were all hyped up. There definitely were no slackers. Everybody was ready to go."   Like many in Adams, Carpenter was a young mill worker in the Renfrew Mills before being deployed on July 1917. After training, the group landed in France in October where the war was well

'I must take my chances:' Letters Home Tell Tale of Williamstown WWI Veteran
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:28AM / Sunday, November 11, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Maybe it was because of his intended audience, maybe it was because the armistice was signed, the hostilities had ceased and Earle Olmstead Brown could begin processing his time in the trenches of World War I, or maybe it was because, as he noted, "Censorship rules are very lenient now."   But for whatever reason, Brown's Nov. 24, 1918, letter from France to his family in Williamstown had different, darker tone than what came before.   "I will never forget my first experience under shell fire," Brown wrote. "I could hear the shells whistle over my head. It gave me a queer sensation. It seemed as if I ought to be able to see

Dug into a hole for the night in France under heavy shelling in November 1918, Hector Richard Tremblay wrote to his wife that he'd give "half his life" for 34 minutes in the city of Pittsfield.   "As I sit in my little hole, my feet are wet and I am cold as the devil. I wonder if I will ever see Pittsfield again," he had written in a letter dated Nov. 9, 1918.

@theMarket: Stocks Take a Breather
By Bill Schmick,
06:23PM / Friday, November 09, 2018
Stocks are in the process of consolidating after the big gains over the last week or so. So far, the October sell-off has led to a recovery of about half of what was lost. In the two months ahead, we should see even further gains.   No matter how much we would like it to, the stock market rarely goes straight up. It is one reason why I constantly advise clients not to check their portfolios on a daily, weekly, or even monthly basis. And never check them in down markets. Why put yourself through that emotional turmoil — especially when you have no intention of using the money anytime soon.   As we now know, the Democrats regained the House this week. As I, and everyone else
