Berkshires Beat: Sen. Hinds Reads Aloud to Young Children in Pittsfield
01:57PM / Monday, April 23, 2018
Time to Read

Dr. Brian Dempsey is sending families home from checkups with free books and a very important prescription for the parents: "Read aloud to your children every day." In support of that effort, Sen. Adam Hinds visited the pediatrician's office on April 20, not only to cheer him on, but to practice what doctors preach by reading to a group of young patients.

Dr. Dempsey participates in Reach Out and Read, a program that prescribes books and reading aloud to give young children a foundation that is crucial for success. Embedded within the existing healthcare system, Reach Out and Read’s model includes providing a new, age-appropriate book for each child to take

Williamstown ZBA Wants Expert Testimony in Person on Cell Tower Issue
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
01:29AM / Monday, April 23, 2018
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — After a year of hearings, community forums and consultations with the town's third-party peer reviewer, the Zoning Board of Appeals wants one more opportunity to clarify the key issue on a proposed cell tower at the junctions of Routes 2 and 7.   The board decided Thursday to continue its public hearing into May in order to arrange for a personal appearance by Walter Cooper of Williamsburg, Va., who has been the town's consultant throughout Verizon Wireless' application to erect a monopole tower at 1161 Cold Spring Road, in the parking lot behind the former Taconic Restaurant.   After more than two hours of testimony on Thursday, the ZBA

Williams Crew Competes on Onota Lake
09:42PM / Saturday, April 21, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- The Williams men’s crew took to its home course of Onota Lake in Pittsfield Saturday to line up against Wesleyan and Amherst in the annual Little Three Championships.   This is the first time in many years that Amherst has returned to the regatta. The conditions were blustery with a moderate cross wind, but relatively tame compared to practice conditions on Onota for the past several days for Williams.   The first varsity opened up the action for the day, looking to bring the Saratoga Oar trophy back to the Purple Valley. The Ephs had a solid start, keeping even with Wesleyan, and pulling away from Amherst, through the high strokes and first 500 meters.

'Ready Player One': It's All a Game
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires columnist
03:28PM / Friday, April 20, 2018
It occurs while viewing Steven Spielberg's "Ready Player One" that this is something Dr. Timothy Leary might have dreamt if he fell asleep just after reading Orwell's "1984."    As a pundit I knew in 1969 was oft inclined to opine when bemused by the semi-unexplainable, "It's trippy." Although the film bounces back and forth between reality and its cause célèbre, virtual reality, we are ultimately relieved when we grok that beneath all the layers of surrealism and cutting-edge chimera, it's just good vs. evil fighting it out in high-tech trappings.   In this feature-length metaphor within a satire based on Ernest

@theMarket: Earnings Up; Stocks, Not So Much
By Bill Schmick,
03:00PM / Friday, April 20, 2018
Earnings season kicked off last Friday with the bank results. The numbers were stellar, but the stock prices of those companies fell hard. Since then, the same thing has occurred to any number of companies. What is going on?   At first, you might think it's classic "sell on the news" behavior where traders bid stock prices up prior to the earnings announcement and then take profits immediately after. However, a closer look reveals something different going on.   For months, investors were expecting a boost to corporate profits from the tax cuts passed by Trump and the GOP last year. Boy oh boy, we said, just wait and see how great earnings will be in the first
