Following "conventional thinking" definitely has its merits.  Knowing others have gone before you is comforting and therefore they can't ALL be wrong.  Right?  Not necessarily.  In fact once the crowd hops onto a trend in the stock market, that is frequently a sign of a top in that market and thus those who jumped late on the band wagon will be the biggest losers.

Do you remember 2005, 2006 or even 2007?  Real estate was everyone's darling and buyers were piling on top of each other, putting in competing bids and selling prices were often over listing prices particularly in the really hot markets.

Those who jumped into real estate in those years

The reopening of the Clark Art Institute was an internationally noted event.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Housing developments and economic development dominated the headlines — and the landscape — of the Village Beautiful in 2014.

The year that ends today saw the end of three major construction projects, the beginning of two more and the prospect of another, which is percolating in a state-mandated pre-development phase.

No single issue has consumed the town more than affordable housing the last few years, and 2014 was no different.

Housing advocates can point to triumphs and tribulations as the town still grapples with the aftermath of 2011's Tropical Storm Irene and

There are plenty of places in Berkshire County serving breakfast for hungry New Year's customers, including dining in style at Cranwell.

LENOX, Mass. — When I was growing up, my parents would eat New Year's morning breakfast out. At a restaurant, with their friends, not with us. Us being the three kids.

Before they went out they would get dressed up.

My mother put on a strapless evening gown made of heavy satin in a color I couldn't na.m.e. Somewhere between black and purple. I remember that distinctly. At least, II do. My mother did not regularly wear evening gowns.

My father wore a tuxedo. A tuxedo? Is this memory really true? Well, some suit with which he had to have

Republican Charlie Baker didn't find a lot of support in here in his successful bid for governor against a Berkshire native but he still made a few trips west to meet with voters.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The state elected a new governor in 2014.

Republican Charlie Baker found little traction in the Berkshires but corralled more than enough votes in the eastern end of the state win the governor's office.

Democratic Gov. Deval Patrick opted not to run for re-election, opening the door to a crowded Democratic primary and a hard-fought election. The Berkshires saw most of the election action leading into the Democratic primary that saw North Adams' Martha Coakley come

Sand Springs has been allowed to rent out two offices people with pool-related activities.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Zoning Board of Appeals had no trouble deciding it wanted to accommodate a request from Sand Springs Pool.

But the body took the better part of an hour figuring out how to do so.

The non-profit recreational facility was before the ZBA on Dec. 18 to request permission to rent two small office spaces on the second floor of its facility.

The sticking point for the board was the location of the newly renovated pool, which is located in a general residence zone.

"In the past, this board has been cautious because it is in the general residence," ZBA Chairman

The ring was buried in Willow Park for the past 28 years. Marc Hurley, who discovered the ring, had a jeweler clean it up. BENNINGTON, Vt. — Missie Baker remembers crying the night her boyfriend lost her 1984 class ring.   It was just two years after she graduated from New Lebanon (N.Y.) Central High School, when he was playing Frisbee in Willow Park. It slipped off his finger. They searched and searched until the sun went down but to no avail.   Now, thanks to a Bennington man with a metal detector, she has it back.   "It was a very important ring. I worked so hard for it. I cried when I lost it," the Lanesborough resident said last week.   Her

The Prudential Committee is exploring how to reduce the cost of false alarms.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Williamstown Fire Department is trying out new technology officials hope will help firefighters stay connected.

At December's monthly meeting of the Prudential Committee, which oversees the fire district, Fire Chief Craig Pedercini told the body about "I Am Responding," an app designed to let emergency services contact their people through phones and allow the first responders to notify the base that they are on their way to the scene of an emergency.

"Essentially, it's a supplement to our pagers," Pedercini said. "What it would do is when the

Pessimists are on vacation this week. It doesn't matter that the indexes are overbought. That markets are hitting new highs without a pause. It's Christmas and Hanukkah week. The Big Guy has come to town.

Of course, investors have had a little help from the Fed and the latest revision of U.S. third quarter GDP. It appears that the economy grew faster than economists expected. Would you believe 5 percent? That's one barn burner of a number even for me, an uber bull on the economy. It is the fastest the economy has grown in 11 years. It follows on the tail of a 4.6 percent rate in the second quarter.
