WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- Al Giorgi left no doubt about the source of his passion for basketball.   "My dad was my main coach from kindergarten through eighth grade -- really most of my life if you want to count yelling at me from the stands," the younger Giorgi said on Sunday evening. "I hear people say sportsmanship and fair play is what it's all about. Not in my household. It was all about the 'W,' the almighty win.   "We wanted to win at everything we did -- basketball, football, checkers, didn't matter."   On Sunday evening at Waubeeka Golf Links' Parsley's Fine Dining, Al Giorgi and Mike Larabee were awarded the 2014 Frank

Chuck St. John, the town's former finance director, has returned to Williamstown as pastor of First Baptist Church. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When Charles "Chuck" St. John left North County three years ago to answer God's call, he never expected to be called back.   But St. John, who gave up a position as the town's finance director in 2011 to enter a seminary, returned this spring as pastor of First Baptist Church of Williamstown.   A native of Cheshire, St. John worked for Williamstown for 27 years before a personal loss led him to find his second calling.   "I was a member of the Stamford Community Church when my wife passed away,"

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 1. Memorial Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities. By some estimates, at least half the work force

At the beginning of the year, Wall Street was certain that interest rates were on their way up. Investors dumped all kinds of bonds anticipating that prices would plummet. Bond prices did the upset. Go figure.

The reversal caught just about everyone by surprise (including me). The thinking behind the bond call was straightforward. The Fed announced it was winding down its stimulus program. It also planned to begin raising interest rates sometime in 2015. Bond players, as they usually do, were expected to anticipate that move and begin to sell U.S. Treasury bonds this year. It all made total sense from an investment perspective. It was the end of a 30-year bull market in bonds so investors

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Eva Green is graphically nihilistic in the violently uncomical comic world of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'

Whether you call it beautifully ugly or repulsively beautiful, there's no denying that Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is fanatically violent. That's doubtlessly the intent.

While some of the cutting-edge ideas and eye-popping visuals surely impress the gray matter, after a while enough is too much. I like to think I've evolved far and away from any distant ancestors' appetite for the random mayhem

The nation's work force has experienced some traumatic events over the past five years. Between the financial crises, global competition and the slow pace of domestic economic growth, is it any wonder that employment in the U.S. is not what it should be? Yet the biggest challenge of all may be right around the corner as the Baby Boomers retire in droves.

From 1946 to 1964, there was a boom of baby making in this country. A total of 76 million Americans were born during those 19 years. Now those Americans are between the ages of 50 to 68 and are eyeing the prospect of retirement in the near future.

Think of it: Nearly one quarter of all Americans alive today will be leaving the labor

On Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014, the heat in my house kicked on in the overnight hours.

Say what?

With the exception of a semi-uncomfortable warm day here or there, August was a mild, lovely month, filled with temperatures in the 70s and blue skies. Twice in August I ventured to evening shows at Tanglewood and ended up needing long pants and jackets.

Lovely. As someone who hates extreme weather - on both ends - I have enjoyed this month immensely. And this last weekend of August, Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of the summer, looks like it will start off just as perfect, with bue skies and temperatures in the 70s predicted for Saturday, Aug. 30.

So why not get out and about on Saturday? I
