On Valentine's Day, Consider Financial Gifts
10:36AM / Wednesday, February 08, 2017

Last year, Americans spent more than $19 billion on Valentine's Day gifts, according to the National Retail Federation, with the majority of this money going to flowers, candy, cards and an evening out. These gifts were thoughtful, of course, and no doubt appreciated, but they were also somewhat disposable, for want of a better word.

On the other hand, some financial gifts can have a pretty long "shelf life."

Beyond simply enclosing some money in a card, what sort of financial gifts can you give? The answer depends somewhat on the recipient. For example, if your sweetheart is also your spouse, some of the gifts suggested below may be redundant to the financial moves you

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:30AM / Wednesday, February 08, 2017

LENOX, Mass. — Celebrating four decades of theater and maintaining relevance for contemporary audiences is the focus of Shakespeare & Company's 2017 season.

With founding Artistic Director Tina Packer at his side, first-year Artistic Director Allyn Burrows Tuesday morning unveiled the venue's lineup for its 40th anniversary season.

Burrows wasted no time establishing that the company cannot program its season in a vacuum and has to recognize the environment beyond its stages.

"Some of us, and Tina as well, were just down at the Shakespeare Association conference in Baltimore," Burrows said. "It was a collection of all the Shakespeare companies around the

11:16AM / Monday, February 06, 2017
CHESHIRE, Mass. — Carson Meczywor scored 11 points Sunday to help Adams outlast Greylock, 32-29, in the Adams youth basketball tournament.   "Adams put lots of pressure on us the whole game that caused us to offensively press and to even get a shot off," Greylock coach Rick Paris said. "We were down, 24-11, at the end of three quarters. We only had three baskets at that point from the field. But in the fourth, our kids really started to attack the rim and pressure the ball."   Derek Paris scored nine of his 11, and Malcom Waynick scored eight of his nine for Greylock in the fourth quarter.   "We are just so proud of how our kids responded to the

Pittsfield Police Suspending Residency Preference For Hiring
Staff Reports,
05:17PM / Friday, February 03, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Police Department is suspending its residency preference for the next Civil Service exam to boost its list of eligible candidates.   The department has been ramping up its hiring of new officers after the City Council authorized a $1 million boost in funding in the budget. Last month, the department put another 10 officers on the roads and had seven in the pipeline. But even more hiring is taking place.   The ramp-up in hiring led the department to exhaust the local list of candidates, which preferenced those who live in the city of Pittsfield. That list was completely depleted so in the next exam, the department is opening it up to the entire

@theMarket: Trump Tweets Tweak Markets
By Bill Schmick,
04:28PM / Friday, February 03, 2017

Financial markets, under the new president, continue to react on an hour-by-hour basis to Donald Trump's latest electronic missives. That's no way to conduct business but it is what it is. At what point will traders begin to discount these tweets?

It will take some time, in my opinion, because there has been nothing quite like this in the history of the world. What makes it worse, as it turns out, some of the new president's statements have proven less than factual, while others have clarified the growing mountain of fake news that media outlets appear happy to broadcast. In the middle are the High Frequency Traders and the computer algorithm geeks who find themselves running

'20th Century Women': Vive la Différence
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:03PM / Friday, February 03, 2017

Folks who require a certain amount of shock, awe and disturbingly aberrant behavior in their cinema might do well to skip filmmaker Mike Mills' highly intelligent "20th Century Women" and perhaps instead focus on the 3-ring circus currently posing as our national body politic. However, if you're the sort who still believes there's room for truth, honest analysis, thoughtful contemplation and selfless, humanitarian goals, then here's your ticket to a sophisticated and high-minded respite from that hopefully temporary insanity lately threatening our democracy.

Rather than informing what "20th Century Women" is about, it might be easier to relate what it
