By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
09:26PM / Tuesday, January 17, 2017

The stop at MCLA was one of several the congressman made in North Berkshire.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Democratic Party can't "sugarcoat" its disastrous situation, says U.S. Rep. Richard Neal.

And the pain lies deeper than the loss of the presidency and failure to make inroads in the Republican-controlled Congress.

"Time for a reset," he said, pointing out that "the people we're losing used to be for us."

Nearly a third of House Democrats come from three states: Massachusetts, New York and California.

"In the last eight years, all election cycles for Congress, we have lost 62 House seats, 15 Senate seats," Neal said at a session at

PITTSFIELD, Mass. -- Caleb Kollmer capped the 46th Gib Kittredge Hockey Tournament in style.

@theMarket: Quarterly Earnings Will Dictate Market's Direction Next Week
By Bill Schmick,
04:12PM / Friday, January 13, 2017

Fourth-quarter earnings results for the nation's corporations kicked-off this week. Investors will focus on those numbers as they wait for the really big show at the end of next week.

Our president-to-be will be inaugurated next Friday with all the usual fanfare. Investors and the markets usually ignore these displays of pomp and ceremony, but not this time. Whether it is the mercurial nature of our new president, or the fact that a lot is riding on how successful he will be out of the gate, the stock market is hanging on every word (or tweet) he makes.

'La La Land': On the One Hand, and Then on the Other
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic

I already knew I was somewhat of a dreamer, but my generally warm and starry-eyed acceptance of wunderkind writer-director Damien Chazelle's "La La Land," a throwback/homage to the nascent movie musicals of the 1930s, also confirms that I am a hopeless romantic. The curious idea to have Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling play the sort of aspiring showbiz kids Ruby Keeler and Dick Powell portrayed in vehicles like "42nd Street" (1933) won me over despite the film's unrealistic plotting and a minor litany of incongruities.

But then again, this is the movies, and just how much suspension of disbelief one is willing to assume is always in direct proportion to how much
