The students came to the church bearing a set of recipe cards, which they produced as part of their quarter-long service-learning project to address issues related to

Money to replace the Columbus Avenue Garage has again been added to a state bond bill. The Senate still has to pass it and then it will be up to the administration when, or if at all, to release the funds to move forward. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Legislature has allocated $45 million more toward connecting all corners of the state to high-speed internet. And the House of Representatives has put local capital projects in the queue for funding.   Working until 10 on Wednesday night, the House of Representatives passed two capital bond bills.

'LBJ': Offers Hope From the Past
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
06:41PM / Thursday, November 09, 2017
Viewers uninterested in politics and American history probably won't enjoy the insight and philosophical ruminations ventured by director Rob Reiner in his savvy biopic, "LBJ." Detailing the momentous ebb and flow of the times just before and after the ascension of Lyndon Baines Johnson to the presidency of the United States in 1963, Reiner, working from a script by Joey Hartstone, studiously puts forth a thesis worthy of an honorary master's degree.    If it had new information about the man behind the Civil Rights Act of 1964, I'd of considered a Ph.D.   Now, I won't attempt to pull away those who would much prefer the couch, the football game, a

By Bill Schmick,
05:11PM / Thursday, November 09, 2017
Over the weekend, the government of Saudi Arabia announced multiple arrests of royal family members as well as other governmental officials. The official explanation was a new campaign to root out corruption, but many believe the raid was a power grab by the reigning Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.   Corruption in Saudi Arabia is as common as sand. It is what makes the wheels run so global observers discounted that excuse. The assumptions ranged from a thwarted coup against the reigning family to a consolidation of power orchestrated by the heir apparent.   As a result, gold jumped over $10 an ounce, oil spiked 3 percent and investors held their breath expecting another shoe
