I don't know about you, but that foot of snow certainly put me in the mood for Christmas. There's nothing like a white Christmas!   Seasonal family events are winding down, but there are a couple of opportunities to see Santa Claus this weekend before staring down a week and a half off from school. (Don't worry: I have some ideas for that, too!)   On Saturday, Dec. 21, Santa Claus will be making a special appearance at the Goodwill store on 457 Dalton Ave. in Pittsfield from 1 to 4 p.m. Children can bring their Christmas wish list, hop up on Santa's lap and tell him how good they have been all year. All children visiting Santa that day will go home with a present

This week the Federal Reserve Bank announced the beginning of the end of its years-long support of the financial markets. Granted, $10 billion per month of reduced purchases is a baby first step, but over the next year, the Fed is hoping they can reduce its bond buying altogether.

For the overwhelming majority of Americans, the fact that the central bank has begun to taper its $85 billion a month of bond purchases is good news. It reflects their view (and mine) that both employment and the economy overall are gathering momentum.

In Wednesday's policy statement, the Federal Open Market Committee took great pains to promise that they would keep short-term interest low until after the

Popcorn Column
by Michael S. Goldberger  
CBS Films The film follows the life of struggling musician Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), left, who in this scene is recording with Jim Berkley (Justin Timberlake). Watching the Coen brothers' "Inside Llewyn Davis," about the Greenwich Village folk music scene in the early '60s, my memory was nostalgically jogged. I'm fairly sure that, whilst trying to become a famous poet, changing the world and looking for everlasting love, I loped into a bistro where Bob Dylan was pretty much pursuing those same goals. Back then, his sound seemed to emanate from every crevice of the

Businesses, schools and government offices will be taking breaks over the next week as the nation celebrates Christmas and New Year's. Christmas falls on Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2013, and New Year's on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014.  

Christmas is now a state holiday but it wasn't always. The General Court under the control of the Puritans outlawed the holiday in 1659.

Too much eating, drinking, wassailing and other festiveness for the colony's righteous rulers. Even after the ban was lifted, Christmas was treated as a regular day until its popularization during the Victorian era. Thank goodness. Can you imagine Norman Rockwell not painting Stockridge at Christmas?

The Prudential Committee said it bowed to the voters wishes to not buy land on Main Street but predicted it would be regretted later. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town is going to regret the missed opportunity to acquire a 3.7-acre Main Street parcel for the purpose of building a new fire station.   That was the consensus of the three-man board that governs the Williamstown Fire District when it met on Wednesday evening.   It was the first meeting of the Prudential Committee since district voters narrowly rejected for the second time this fall the acquisition of the so-called Lehovec property next to the former Agway building on Route 2 (Main

These little piggies will get big on scraps from North Adams Regional Hospital  WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The trend in Berkshire County may be "farm to table" but one farming partnership is reversing the order — from table to farm.    Or more accurately "almost table" to some very hungry pigs. Big pigs.    Jennifer LaValley and her brother, Peter, are continuing a farming tradition begun by their grandfather on land along the Green River, raising Hereford cattle and Yorkshire and Duroc heritage breed pigs.    "We have a novel approach ... like our cows, there are things pigs are meant to be fed," LaValley

From sandy beaches to surprisingly affordable living costs, the latest ranking of foreign retirement destinations by International Living magazine makes becoming an expat retiree look very attractive.

But is retiring abroad really as easy — and affordable — as it sounds?

If you're retiring abroad to indulge an adventurous streak, you're on the right track. Colombia, for  instance, has made great strides in public safety and appears on this year's International Living list. But  if you're looking to stretch your retirement dollars, you may be in for some surprises.

American Farmland Trust New England Director Cris Coffin discusses the research conducted on behalf of her organization. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A study by Williams College students suggests area agriculture advocates think big by thinking small.   The key to expanding local food production in Northern Berkshire County lies in promoting small-scale partnerships between landowners and new or existing farmers, according to "A Future for Farming: Land Leasing in Williamstown and Adams."   Four students in professor Sarah Gardner's Center for Environmental Studies class presented the results of their research at this month's meeting of the Williamstown
