Rockwell in dance

The Albany Berkshire Ballet has been awarded a project grant of $2,500 from the Massachusetts Cultural Council's Cultural Investment Portfolio for the continued development of the new work "Rockwell in Our Time" by choreographer Mary Giannone Talmi. Talmi is collaborating with playwright Kevin McGerigle and composer Christopher Culpo with additional choreography by Andres Ramirez and music by Ben Talmi.

@theMarket: The Market's Last Quarter
By Bill Schmick,
04:29PM / Friday, September 28, 2018
Today marks the end of the third quarter for stocks in 2018. But it is the fourth quarter that will determine what kind of year it will be. Let's place our bets.   First, we should look at what could go wrong over the next three months. Tariffs probably lead the list. More of them, (although the dollar amount is minimal in the scheme of global trade), would be bad for sentiment within the global stock markets. Mid-term elections are a toss-up, but simply not knowing the outcome I count as a negative. Quarterly earnings results might also hold some risk for investors. And finally, the latest investor sentiment readings (a contrary indicator) are as high as they were back in January

Markey Proposes Legislation to Restore Berkshire TV Lineups
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:12PM / Friday, September 28, 2018

U.S. Rep. Edward Markey said the Berkshire customers should get both stations. PITTSFIELD,  Mass. — Two flags decorated microphones at the podium in the City Hall chambers Friday morning.   One was Springfield-based WWLP Channel 22 and the other was Albany, N.Y.-based WNYT Channel 13.   One major difference between the two is that no one who lives in Berkshire County could watch the Massachusetts station on cable television to hear the press conference at Pittsfield City Hall.    Spectrum cable pulled Channel 22 from its lineup earlier this year, as well as WCVB Channel 5 out of Boston. Spectrum subscribers in the Berkshires on Friday weren't able to

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:57AM / Friday, September 28, 2018
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Workforce development professionals are taking a deeper dive into building the region's health care, hospitality, and manufacturing industries.   It isn't that other sectors aren't important but that the Baker administration has tasked local officials to develop a blueprint for workforce development with specific industries to focus a greater amount of attention.    Headed by the Berkshire County Regional Employment Board — which will soon have a much easier name to remember — county officials completed a plan are now looking to implement it.   "We needed to prioritize two to three industries and two to three

The Independent Investor: Credit Freeze for Free
By Bill Schmick,
03:30PM / Thursday, September 27, 2018
It just got cheaper to freeze your credit files, thanks to the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act. But should you do it?   The law, signed by President Trump back in May, only took effect this month. It requires the three major credit reporting bureaus — Equifax, Trans Union and Experian — to drop the fees to freeze your credit. Those fees ranged from $3 to $10 per person, times three credit bureaus, plus more charges to "thaw" your credit. Consumers can now also un-freeze their files, either temporarily or permanently, free of charge.   Thanks to a recent spate of credit breaches, Congress felt it needed to do something about the

Understanding Risk Tolerance Is Essential for Investment Success
Submitted by Edward Jones,
11:17AM / Wednesday, September 26, 2018

To succeed as an investor, you might think you need to know about the economy, interest rates and the fundamentals of companies in which you would like to invest. And all these things are indeed important. But it's most essential to know yourself. Specifically, you need to know how much risk you are willing to tolerate to achieve your goals.

Of course, you've lived with yourself your entire life, so you probably have a pretty good idea of your likes and dislikes and what makes you comfortable or uncomfortable. But investing can be a different story.

Initially, you may believe you have a high tolerance for risk, but if the financial markets drop sharply, and you see that

Ground Broken For Berkshire Innovation Center
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:30PM / Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Gov. Charlie Baker helped break ground on the $13.7 million project.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Shawna Axenroth and her daughter go hiking in the scenic Berkshire Hills and talk about the environment. They run science experiments in their kitchen.

And they are both looking to pursue scientific careers.

Axenroth is at Berkshire Community College and her daughter is just starting the first year of high school. They both want to live and work fruitful careers in the science field in their hometown.   But the way it has been going in the region, there hasn't been much reason to be optimistic about that prospect. The population has been declining, particularly with the younger
