Biz Briefs: Guido's Fresh Marketplace Brothers Named Members of the Year
01:18PM / Monday, August 06, 2018
Feeling fresh

The Southern Berkshire Chamber of Commerce has named Matt and Chris Masiero of Guido's Fresh Marketplace as the Business Persons of the Year. The Masiero brothers began their professional partnership in search of the very best produce they could source and sell. They named their roadside stand after their father Guido, determined to carry on the commitment to good health and personal integrity that ran through everything Guido did. That little roadside stand has grown, but the brothers' mission remained the same: to find the freshest, highest quality products from Lenox to Lyon; to help you feed families well; and to support the community both within their stores and

End of Session Review 2018: William 'Smitty' Pignatelli
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:58AM / Monday, August 06, 2018
This is the second in a series of interviews with the Berkshire delegation on legislative actions during this past session of the General Court.     LENOX, Mass. — State Rep. William "Smitty" Pignatelli thinks the House of Representatives had a very productive session.   But he is disappointed that two major topics were never fully addressed — health care and education.   The Legislature just completed the formal portion of the 190th session. While there will still be informal sessions, it is unlikely any major undertaking will take place until the new Legislature is in place in January. In the last two years, Pignatelli said the state did

Swallowtails and Purples Abound at Stoney Ledge
By Tor Hansen, iBerkshires columnist
04:33PM / Sunday, August 05, 2018

A monarch sips nectar from a lily. Its wings can brush against the flower's stamen and anthers, spreading its pollen to the next flower. ADAMS, Mass. — The winding trail out to Stoney Ledge on the slopes of Mount Greylock is wide enough to allow sunlight to penetrate the high leafy canopy above, creating light gaps where wildflowers abound that attract assorted butterflies.    The tiger swallowtail is the sole swallowtail here in late June through mid-July, and quite numerous, leading to a surprising estimate in the thousands for the whole Greylock mountain range and neighboring valleys. Swallowtails looping and fluttering through the green woodland in this great

End of Session Review 2018: Tricia Farley-Bouvier
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
07:26AM / Sunday, August 05, 2018
  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The massive criminal justice reform bill stands out as a highlight of the legislative session for state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier.   The Legislature just wrapped up its formal session on Tuesday night, concluding deliberations on most major pieces of law until a new Legislature takes over in January -- though there are still informal sessions during which bills can be passed.   Farley-Bouvier, representing the 3rd Berkshire District that encompasses most of Pittsfield, highlighted the criminal justice reform bill as one of the top undertakings lawmakers completed in the last two years.   "That has wide-ranging implications for most

@theMarket: Stocks Set for a Volatile August
By Bill Schmick,
04:23PM / Friday, August 03, 2018
This month would be a good time to go on vacation. Otherwise, you might be tempted to do something rash like chase stocks or sell at their lows. That is the kind of market volatility investors should expect in August.   The market's trading range is still intact and should continue and keep stock market values corralled into September and probably October.    We had our moves up to the old highs (or slightly beyond) in most of the averages in July. A combination of anticipated stellar second-quarter earnings and somewhat less rhetoric from the "Trumpster," allowed equities to notch their fourth month of gains. Second quarter earnings have come in as expected for

'Mission: Impossible-Fallout': It Takes All Kinds
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
12:57PM / Friday, August 03, 2018
"Why do bad people have to be bad?"   Thus spake my great nephew-in-law, Nate, 4, after recently seeing his first movie in a theater, "Incredibles 2." His other inquiry was whether or not the lights would come back on when the film concluded.   Well Nate, in answer to your first question, we've been working on that since time immemorial, both in real life and in fiction, and we have some theories ... none conclusive. Some scientists believe it's bad mommies and daddies that make bad people. And then there's the bad seed concept: the matter of an aberrant gene causing one to think they have not only the right, but nay, the obligation to bully people

The Independent Investor: The Incredible Shrinking Stock Market
By Bill Schmick,
04:44PM / Thursday, August 02, 2018
There was a time, back in the late Nineties, that publicly-traded stocks were the envy of all companies, great and small. But times have changed, and since then the number of public companies have fallen by 50 percent.   You might have missed that trend, however. That's because the market capitalization of equities has been increasing for a decade. This year the market cap of the U.S. stock market hit a record $32.2 trillion. Globally, the World Bank estimates stock market capitalization is above $80 trillion. The largest contributor to this trend has been the large increases in stock prices.   Bottom line: investors are simply bidding up the prices of existing stocks in an

District Attorney Candidates Display Differences in Lengthy Debate
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:53AM / Thursday, August 02, 2018

Andrea Harrington promised to be a leader who inspires others to address the issues. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Judith Knight says she has "shown you what I am."   On Wednesday night, the candidate for district attorney boasted of some 30 years of work in the community. She stood as a defense attorney more than a dozen years ago for teenagers for whom she believed were inappropriately getting the book thrown at them from former District Attorney David Capeless for selling marijuana.   When those from the West Side neighborhood felt the same injustice was being served on young woman in 2007, Knight showed up again. In 2008, there was a similar call. In 2012, after a
