Engaging With The Dead: Berkshirites & Spectral World Part 2: Gilded Age to Modern Para-Tourism
By Joe Durwin, Special to iBerkshires
01:37PM / Sunday, October 31, 2021

What's left of the Mallery residence in New Ashford, the site of a gruesome murder that led to tales of hauntings. It's interesting to me that some of the Gilded Age cottages that have come to be most associated with hauntings today — places like The Mount, Whistlers Inn, Ventfort Hall — weren't at all among the early reputed "haunted houses" of the Berkshires of that era.   Instead, you have places like Greenwood — aka the Captain Britton place in Pittsfield — or Fernbrook, in Lenox.   Greenwood was an interesting early example. Thomas Britton built it in the late 1840s, on a hill near where Route 20 meets Barker Road. It was

By Jack Guerino, iBerkshires Staff
04:57PM / Friday, October 29, 2021
LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — The roads to the Mount Greylock State Reservation will be closed Saturday, Oct. 30, at 3 p.m. to avoid Halloween vandalism.   Park Superintendent Travis Clairmont told the Mount Greylock Advisory Council on Thursday that, as in recent years, he plans to close down the mountain roads Saturday afternoon while he still has seasonal staff on hand.     Also to avoid Halloween, a night that always brings vandalism to the reservation    "There has been consistent vandalism on Halloween night so it is one more reason to close up," Clairmont said. "Last time we were open on Halloween, they smashed windows and burnt a kiosk.

@theMarket: Good Earnings Support Markets
By Bill Schmick,
03:51PM / Friday, October 29, 2021
Third-quarter earnings have cheered investors, sending markets to new highs. The bullish wave of buying was so strong that investors ignored the disappointing third quarter read on the nation's Gross Domestic Product (GDP).   Economists were looking for the economy to grow by 2.6 percent, but instead, GDP gained a mere 2 percent, which was the slowest rate in over a year. Economic activity was damaged by the Delta variant as well as continuing supply-side constraints. The market's reaction indicates that investors are looking through the weak number and expecting the economy to continue to grow.   It seems to be a question of demand versus supply. Yes, the economy slowed,

The Retired Investor: The Billionaire Tax That Wasn't
By Bill Schmick,
03:58PM / Thursday, October 28, 2021
This week, the Democrats unveiled a new plan to finance President Biden's "Build Back Better" legislation. That proposal, along with a 15 percent corporate minimum tax, has politicians scrambling to line up for or against the idea. Does it have a chance to pass?   Credit for the idea goes to the Senate's top tax expert, Finance Chair Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat. His plan is to target only people with $1 billion in assets, or who are earning more than $100 million over three consecutive years. This group would be required to pay capital gains taxes each year on the appreciation in the value of their assets. It won't matter whether they sell or hold those
