Veteran Spotlight: Seaman Nichols Witness to History
By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
05:48PM / Monday, November 11, 2019

Seaman Bob Nichols was about 100 feet away from the ceremony for the formal surrender of Japan in 1945. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Simply put, Bob Nichols represents The Greatest Generation in admirable fashion. At 93 years of age, he is extremely kind, gracious, tremendously fit and carries himself with immense humility.    The World War II veteran served his country from 1944-1946 in the Navy aboard the USS Missouri in the South Pacific Theater.    Sent to basic training at Fort Sampson in New York, Seaman Nichols was sent to Newport, R.I., for further training and a "shakedown" cruise to Norfolk, Va., and then on to Trinidad. His brand-new ship was the

@theMarket: Phase One Deal Keeps Markets Bullish
By Bill Schmick,
04:37PM / Friday, November 08, 2019
It was all about the trade deal this week. Both sides seem to want a resolution to the crippling tariffs that have sent the world's economies to the brink of recession. The relief that investors feel is reflected in the new highs we are enjoying at the moment.   I say "at the moment" because anything can change with a tweet. However, given the mounting problems of the Trump presidency, I believe he needs something positive (and fairly soon) to divert the nation's attention away from the impeachment hearings next week.   Trump appears willing to drop, or at least roll back, some (or all) of the tariffs he put in place, but he can't be seen as too

An image of the 353rd Infantry in France taken two minutes before the armistice ending World War I went into effect.

Veterans Day falls on Monday, Nov. 11, and will be observed as a state and federal holiday.

The federal holiday is to commemorate the service of the nation's military veterans in ensuring peace.

It was first known as Armistice Day to mark the end of World War I at the 11th hour, on the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. In recognition of the efforts of World War II veterans, President Eisenhower in 1954 signed legislation creating Veterans Day with the goal of honoring all American veterans.

Winter Makes A (Relatively Timid) Debut in the Berkshires
12:51PM / Friday, November 08, 2019

In case you've forgotten what winter feels like, step outside today.

The highs for Friday in the Berkshires will barely reach 30 degrees, with snow flurries possibly filling the air, too. Many of us woke up this morning to snow on the ground, too: The National Weather Service out of Albany, N.Y., reported .2 inches in Great Barrington.

This weekend will be chilly but slightly warmer than Friday, with Saturday's highs in the upper 30s and Sunday reaching into the 40s.

But everyone is looking at a potential snow event next Tuesday (see the AccuWeather map below), so we here at iBerkshires.com will keep our eyes on that.

Just to jog your memory, last week saw the first National
