Lt Gov. Candidate Kerrigan Confident With Berkshire Support
By Andy McKeever,
10:12AM / Tuesday, September 02, 2014
Former City Councilor Pete White, Pittsfield's Shannon Grant Coordinator Adam Hinds, lieutenant governor candidate Steve Kerrigan and Sheriff Thomas Bowler at a meet and greet at Mad Jack's last Tuesday. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — In 2009, state and federal officials broke ground on the Soldier On's Gordon Mansfield Center on West Housatonic Street.   Neither U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy nor Steve Kerrigan were able to attend that day. But Kerrigan, then Kennedy's political aide, remembers working out the details of the federal earmark making that construction possible.   Last week, years after the center opened, Soldier On Executive Vice President Steven Como was

By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff

An emergency call box on the Williams College campus. iBerkshires spoke with the college's sexual assault prevention director and the district attorney about the roles of the educational and legal system in campus assaults.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Last spring's national discussion about sexual assault on college campuses hit very close to home for Williams College when a former student made headlines with allegations she had been steered away from the criminal justice system and toward a college disciplinary process she found unsatisfactory.

The Boston resident went public after her alleged attacker was allowed back at Williams after a three-semester suspension, something she

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Al Giorgi left no doubt about the source of his passion for basketball.   "My dad was my main coach from kindergarten through eighth grade — really most of my life if you want to count yelling at me from the stands," the younger Giorgi said on Sunday evening at Waubeeka Golf Links. "I hear people say sportsmanship and fair play is what it's all about. Not in my household. It was all about the 'W,' the almighty

Chuck St. John, the town's former finance director, has returned to Williamstown as pastor of First Baptist Church. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — When Charles "Chuck" St. John left North County three years ago to answer God's call, he never expected to be called back.   But St. John, who gave up a position as the town's finance director in 2011 to enter a seminary, returned this spring as pastor of First Baptist Church of Williamstown.   A native of Cheshire, St. John worked for Williamstown for 27 years before a personal loss led him to find his second calling.   "I was a member of the Stamford Community Church when my wife passed away,"

Holiday Hours: Labor Day
05:32PM / Saturday, August 30, 2014

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 1. Memorial Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities. By some estimates, at least half the work force

Come Home to the Berkshires | Berkshire County, Mass.
By Paul Harsch,
02:13PM / Saturday, August 30, 2014

Traveling the world is exciting ... and exhausting, too.

Spending vacations at the beach is fun ... but then there is the sunburn.

Skiing in Colorado is thrilling ... but when the snow melts what else to you do?

Arizona is hot and dry and sunny ALL the time ... enough said.

Florida is great for the winter months but year around?  Oh my.

Home, yes, that is what the Berkshires are for.  And these are the reasons why:

The Berkshires are about crisp fall days of spectacular color followed by cool fall evenings and the wonderful aroma of fallen leaves.

The Berkshires are about fresh fallen snow blanketing everything in silence and turning everything it touches into a silhouette of


@theMarket: What's Up With Bonds?
By Bill Schmick,
07:31AM / Saturday, August 30, 2014

At the beginning of the year, Wall Street was certain that interest rates were on their way up. Investors dumped all kinds of bonds anticipating that prices would plummet. Bond prices did the upset. Go figure.

The reversal caught just about everyone by surprise (including me). The thinking behind the bond call was straightforward. The Fed announced it was winding down its stimulus program. It also planned to begin raising interest rates sometime in 2015. Bond players, as they usually do, were expected to anticipate that move and begin to sell U.S. Treasury bonds this year. It all made total sense from an investment perspective. It was the end of a 30-year bull market in bonds so investors


'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For': Graphic, Indeed

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
  Eva Green is graphically nihilistic in the violently uncomical comic world of 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.'

Whether you call it beautifully ugly or repulsively beautiful, there's no denying that Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is fanatically violent. That's doubtlessly the intent.

While some of the cutting-edge ideas and eye-popping visuals surely impress the gray matter, after a while enough is too much. I like to think I've evolved far and away from any distant ancestors' appetite for the random mayhem


The Independent Investor: Baby Boomers and Retirement
By Bill Schmick,
05:28PM / Friday, August 29, 2014

The nation's work force has experienced some traumatic events over the past five years. Between the financial crises, global competition and the slow pace of domestic economic growth, is it any wonder that employment in the U.S. is not what it should be? Yet the biggest challenge of all may be right around the corner as the Baby Boomers retire in droves.

From 1946 to 1964, there was a boom of baby making in this country. A total of 76 million Americans were born during those 19 years. Now those Americans are between the ages of 50 to 68 and are eyeing the prospect of retirement in the near future.

Think of it: Nearly one quarter of all Americans alive today will be leaving the labor

Williams College students will sampling Spring Street's fare on Sunday and Williamstown residents are invited to join them. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Spring Street's merchants are rolling out the red carpet to welcome the town's newest batch of temporary residents ... and renew acquaintances with everyone else.   Williams College will hold its second annual Spring Street Food Fair on Sunday from 4 to 7:30 p.m. to give its incoming freshman class a chance to sample some of what Williamstown's downtown has to offer.   The school ran the event on a smaller scale last year, inviting just about 225 students to participate.   This year, the entire class of
