A frolicking performance at the 52nd and final UCP 'Starfest' Telethon on Sunday afternoon at the Crowne Plaza. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A 52-year-old tradition ended Sunday night.   United Cerebral Palsy of Berkshire County held its final telethon fundraiser Sunday afternoon. The event started in General Electric union halls in 1963 and grew to be an annual event held at the Crowne Plaza.    "The phones don't ring as much as they used to," Executive Director Christine Singer said. "In the early days, the telethon was the event. Nothing was done ahead of time because we didn't have the technology."   But now it is much easier to

Former independent gubernatorial candidate Evan Falchuk held a meet and greet at Starbase Technologies Saturday night. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — When Gov. Deval Patrick announced in July that state taxpayers would spend $1 billion to expand the Boston Convention Center, it became Evan Falchuk's favorite example of how the state's priorities were out of whack.   He was running for governor at the time and forming the new United Independent Party. He didn't win the state's top executive office but the party did reel in enough votes to become recognized by the state.   Official parties can raise up to $15,000 from individuals while unofficial parties can only

We can thank Mario Draghi, the head of the European Central Bank, for snapping the stock market out of its monthlong lethargy. This week, the ECB launched a trillion-dollar program of monetary stimulus that gave investors worldwide a shot in the arm.

The program amounts to an injection of 60 billion Euros per month into the EU economies through the purchase of private and public debt. The quantitative easing will continue until September 2016. However, ECB spokesmen hinted that if more time is needed the program could be extended indefinitely.

Clearly, the ECB is benefiting from lessons learned over here. Our Fed created uneeded volatility over several years by launching and then

Williams College has installed a charging station on Spring Street for electric cars. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — David Richardson may never use the new electric car charging station at the bottom of Spring Street.   But he could not be happier that it is there.   "I live about 10 miles from campus, and my car, under ideal circumstances, gets a 40-mile range on a charge," Richardson, a chemistry professor at Williams College, said this week. "Unless I run errands, that fits most of the time in my charge boundaries.   "I applaud the town for being this forward looking to install this device, but I’d almost never use it. … But for

The Mount isn't very busy when it's covered in snow, but this Saturday, Jan. 24, a daylong celebration of Edith Wharton's birthday and reading will start in the Lenox mansion.

LENOX, Mass. — Edith Wharton would have turned 153 years old this Saturday, Jan. 24. In a happy coincidence, Jan. 24 is also National Readathon Day. How could such a pairing not spark a creative mid-winter event?

The Mount, Edith Wharton's home in Lenox, is joining with Lenox businesses and organizations in hosting a day of literary appreciation on Jan. 24. The festivities will include dramatic readings, raffles and refreshments at three of Lenox's leading literary hubs: The Mount, the

To the Editor,
 
Congratulations to Fairview Hospital and BHS for the national award it received in December.
