Beset by scandals that could reach as high as the presidential office, suffering from an epic drought, low oil prices, high inflation, a declining currency and a negative economic growth rate, the world's seventh largest economy could be an interesting long-term investment but not for the faint of heart.

No question about it, Brazil is a basket case right now. Dilma Rousseff, the two-term Brazilian president and former head of the state-owned energy behemoth, Petrobras, is embroiled in scandal. So far she has managed to elude prosecutors, who are pursuing 28 different investigations involving 54 politicians. Present and former Petrobras executives, including heads of both Chambers of

Director of the governor's Western Massachusetts office Ryan Chamberland was the guest speaker on Thursday at the bi-annual Berkshire County Selectmen's Association dinner. GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Lee Selectman David Consolati would love to take a bridge down and replace it with a new one in the exact same spot.    But, before he can do that, the town must spend a quarter of a million dollars in engineering and then perform a $60,000 environmental study, among many requirements, throughout a two-year process with the state.   He wants the state to essentially pre-package plans that need to only be adjusted by size of the bridge and shorten the approval

Adrian Dunn speaks to the Board of Selectmen about proposed bylaws planning plastic bags and rigid foam containers. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Environmental activists have one word for voters at this year's annual town meeting: plastics.   But they don't see a future for the petroleum-based material — particularly in the form of single-use plastic bags and foam and rigid polystyrene food containers.   Two citizen petitions will appear on the May 19 warrant seeking the prohibition of the offending materials in the Village Beautiful.   The first, Article 42, seeks to "regulate the use of plastic carryout bags and paper carryout bags within the Town and

Bleecker Street Media Rock star Danny Collins (Al Pacino) takes stock of his life after a missive from John Lennon finally arrives.

I suspect there will be a spate of movies custom made for baby boomers as they proceed into the sexa- and septuagenarian periods of their lives. They will nurture and extoll the virtues of this mixed blessing that's certainly better than the alternative. Call them the Dick and Jane films for golden-agers: i.e. — See Dick have a hip replacement; see Spot sympathize. Hopefully, most will be as entertaining as writer-director Dan Fogelman's "Danny

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Never judge a book by its cover, so the saying goes.

Local author Amelia Ritner doesn't want you to judge a vegetable by its appearance, either.

Ritner, who currently lives in Pittsfield, just released a children's book called "Ugly Farm" that features pictures she took of strange-looking produce while working on a Connecticut farm last summer.
