Hundreds Gather in Pittsfield to Protest Trump's Immigration Policies
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:07PM / Saturday, June 30, 2018

Hundreds filled Park Square, all dressed in white, to protect the Trump administration. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — After years of living under Pol Pot's reign in Cambodia, Sopheap Nhim's family knew they had to get out.    In the fall of 1979, they made their break. Four adults and five children found themselves on the shores of the United States, just as so many other immigrants had throughout the history of this country.    "It is a miracle that 11 of us, five adults and six children, children between the ages of 18 months and 10 years of age, together we were able to escape and come to the United States. I am the youngest of those six children,"

'Incredibles 2': The American Family to the Rescue
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
04:31PM / Friday, June 29, 2018
I doubt I've ever said this in a review, so here goes: "Incredibles 2," an intelligently humorous follow-up to the 2004 original, is good fun for the entire family. There, said it.   Just don't let the opportunity for bonding among parents, children and crotchety Aunt Edna, if you deign to charitably invite her, bankrupt the clan. While only an anecdotal bit of accounting, I estimate that the mom two rows in front of me spent at least 21 minutes and about $57.25 going back and forth to the concession stand fetching cheese nachos et al for her flock of five before finally sitting down. Harrumph!   It boggles the mind, but I kind of get it: a phylum of moviegoer

@theMarket: A Wash-Rinse-Repeat Market
By Bill Schmick,
04:07PM / Friday, June 29, 2018
There was nothing to see in the markets this week, simply more of the same crisis news that may keep the media happy, but no one else. Tariffs and trade remain in the forefront and will continue to do so. What should investors do?   Just move on and enjoy your summer. The Fourth of July falls in the middle of the coming week with stock markets closing for half the day on Tuesday. As such, many professional traders will take the entire week off. Given that the Northeast faces their first summer heatwave as well, the corridors of Wall Street should be quite empty.   So whatever ups and downs the stock market may have next week will mean little to nothing. Those who must

Berkshire Humane Society Offers Guides for Pets in Hot Weather
01:46PM / Friday, June 29, 2018

Berkshire Humane Society advises all residents of the Berkshires and surrounding areas to be mindful of their pets' safety during the forecasted upcoming heat wave.

With expected temperatures in the 90s and an even higher heat index, it is extremely important to keep pets indoors and out of the sun, constantly hydrated and well groomed. The heat is predicted this weekend through the end of the week.

Ideally, pets live indoors with their families. If they must spend time outside, make sure they have constant shade throughout their time outdoors even as the sun moves across the sky. Provide plenty of water along with ice cubes. Consider setting up a kiddie pool for dogs that enjoy

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:55AM / Friday, June 29, 2018

The 'patients' immediately got into character when the alarm went off. Many were yelling for staff and others were passing out after attempting to stand. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — This is just a test of the emergency response system.   One man died during a fire at Berkshire Health Center's Central County Dialysis Center on Thursday evening and 17 others were taken to the hospital. Shortly after 7 p.m., the fire alarm went off at the center with 18 patients in the midst of treatment.   Staff had to quickly unhook the panicked and immobile patients from the machines and one by one get them out of harm's way.    Police closed of Conte Drive,

The Independent Investor: Currencies & Trade Wars
By Bill Schmick,
04:34PM / Thursday, June 28, 2018
What's up with the dollar? The greenback is strengthening and is having its best quarter since 2016 against an array of foreign currencies. Is this an accident, or is it something far more dangerous?   Economists will tell you that the Trump tariff crusade is responsible. New trade barriers, which the president is suggesting, would usually lead to higher prices at home, according to economic doctrine. Products we import would cost more, whether we are talking about steel, automobiles, or baseball caps.   As prices increase, so should the U.S. inflation rate. As inflation rises, bondholders will demand higher interest rates to keep up with inflation. In turn, higher interest
