By Joe Durwin, iBerkshires Staff
04:13AM / Tuesday, May 04, 2021

Prince will be hosting live performances throughout the summer. LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — After surviving cancer and then a layoff, Joe Prince decided to follow his own star and start a business. He could not have predicted a worldwide pandemic would strike almost immediately after he did so.   "We were in there just a couple of weeks before COVID came along and shut us down," Prince told iBerkshires of his first, short-lived shop opened in Cheshire in early 2020.   After struggling to reopen and make it work at his first location for a few months, he switched gears and went bigger, one town over.   Restructuring from his 1,300 square-foot Cheshire store,

Williamstown DIRE Committee: 'Detox' Good for the Town
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:22AM / Monday, May 03, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — As it nears the end of its inaugural year and faces the first departure of a founding member, the town's diversity committee Monday reflected on the importance of the discussions it has had and the perspectives it has centered in the town's conversation.   "One of the things I hope this year has started to plant the seeds of is whatever our backgrounds, whatever our races, whatever our identities, these are all issues that aren't about non-Black people helping Black people," Aruna D'Souza said. "They aren't about non-POC helping [people of color]. They're really about everyone coming together to build the community that

Veteran Spotlight: Airman Ben Hamilton
By Wayne Soares, Special to iBerkshires
04:12PM / Sunday, May 02, 2021
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — If I were to describe the subject of my Veteran Spotlight feature, it would be as extremely nice with an infectious smile and outstanding personality.    Born in Ellaville, Ga., Ben Hamilton served his country in the Air Force from 1963 to 1967 as an airman second class. But Airman Hamilton almost never made it to his current age of 77 as he almost suffered a tragic accident at the age of 3.    "We were visiting relatives in Tampa, Fla., and I fell three stories out of a window. I'm still here," he said laughing.   He enlisted with a friend in Springfield through the "Buddy Program," which allows small groups to

@theMarket: Fed Signals Equities 'All Clear' But Markets Don't Care
By Bill Schmick,
03:58PM / Friday, April 30, 2021
Investors were bolstered by the Fed's message this week. Low interest rates and monetary stimulus will remain pillars of the nation's economic recovery for as long as it takes. Investors were comforted, but not enough to materially move stocks higher.   It was indicative that despite bullish news on a variety of fronts, investors ignored the good and focused on the negatives. First quarter earnings results, for example, have been better than good, but not enough to satisfy the bulls. Apple smashed earnings estimates, sending its stock price higher in after-hours trade, but the next day it finished down. It has been the same story for many of the market's winners. What this

Williamstown Planning Board Agrees to Minor Change to Cannabis Bylaw Proposal
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
02:15AM / Friday, April 30, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Planning Board on Tuesday discussed how to make one of its proposed bylaw amendments more palatable and how to make another more understandable.   The board has proposed four zoning changes to June's annual town meeting, where each will need a two-thirds majority vote for passage.   The one that has generated easily the most public discourse concerns the rules governing cultivation of cannabis. But that was not the only bylaw to get pushback from the Select Board at its Monday meeting.   That board voted, 4-1, against recommending that town meeting accept the pot bylaw as written. And one night later, the Planning Board agreed to propose an

The Retired Investor: Empty Oceans
By Bill Schmick,
04:06PM / Thursday, April 29, 2021
Oceans cover more than two-thirds of the earth's surface. For centuries, these bodies of water have supplied us with a bountiful harvest of ocean wildlife and millions of well-paying jobs. Unless something changes, however, the future of fisheries is in serious jeopardy.   The demand for fish is growing with aquaculture trends reaching a growth rate of 527 percent from 1990 to today. At the same time, fish consumption has doubled as well.   Declining fisheries, the destruction of the marine habitat, and the near-depression-like economic conditions of more and more coastal fishing communities, is no surprise to most of us. It has been going on for decades. And yet, the appetite
