ADAMS, Mass. — It was some 55 years ago that Francis Bourdon stood in Maple Street Cemetery to recite the Gettysburg Address as a member of Boy Scout Troop 38.    "If you had told me that someday I would be speaking here, I would have laughed," said the retired lieutenant colonel on Monday at the annual Memorial Day service in Adams.

@theMarket: Nothing Memorable in the Markets this Week
By Bill Schmick,
04:35PM / Friday, May 25, 2018
Most indexes ended the week where they started. While day traders may have lost or gained from intraday moves, serious investors simply ignored the constant and contradictory stream of news coming out of Washington.   It isn't worth the space to comment on all the on-again, off-again series of tweets and statements that has become part of our daily diet. The main events that did carry some substantive weight were the House rollback of the Dodd-Frank rules. This easing of regulations on all but the largest banks, removes the required ‘stress tests' from most banks. While it relaxes some of the more stringent rules on banks, it does continue to regulate those areas that

'Book Club': Can Be Judged From Its Cover
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
04:06PM / Thursday, May 24, 2018
The grist and gist of the pleasantly engaging but no-great-shakes "Book Club," directed by Bill Holderman and starring four of our national treasures, reminded me of an informing moment a few years back. My wife, Joanne, and I were driving across the Neversink River in the Catskills just as Mick Jagger and that band of his came over the radio. It was "Jumping Jack Flash" that stirred me to opine, "Can you imagine if someday we're in the old age home and the Rolling Stones visit to entertain us?" Her answer surprised me.   "Cool!" said my co-veteran of the Hippy Era, the resilience therein implied brightening the picture I had

The Independent Investor: It Is No Longer Enough to Simply Manage Money
By Bill Schmick,
03:37PM / Thursday, May 24, 2018
Back in the day, money managers were revered. News stories spotlighting the year's "hottest hands," or that hedge fund's rising star were all the rage. Retail investors chased performance and paid for it. But times are changing, and simply beating the market for a year or two fails to impress most investors.   And with good reason.   Most of us are in the investment game for the long haul. We are saving for retirement: a process involving decades of saving and planning. Chasing the firm or adviser that "beat the market" this year has turned out to be a disastrous approach to that concept.   Most of us have now realized that you can't beat the

The Choice for Western Mass: Lead or Lose
, Guest Column
02:22PM / Thursday, May 24, 2018
State Houses across the country, and right here in Massachusetts, are facing a moment of generational change in leadership. Particularly in Western Mass, which is too often ignored by decision-makers on Beacon Hill, we will have to speak up — and fight together — for the funding, the projects and the policy priorities we need.   There are many issues where we are already leading the state. On the opioid epidemic, which has hit our region especially hard, we helped create the Narcan bulk purchase program that has saved thousands of lives. And our residents have banded together to form groups like Belchertown's Speaking Out About Addiction and Recovery, the Opioid Task

Shirley Edgerton said Harrington has a better sense of the power of the office. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Andrea Harrington says the "status quo" in the district attorney's office is not working for Berkshire County.   "It is time to have a district attorney with integrity and who is accountable to this community," Harrington said.   The local attorney said North Adams has the highest crime rate per capita in the state and Pittsfield ranks ninth.The district attorney's office, which had been occupied by David Capeless for the last 14 years, can do much more in a preventative manner than it has been doing, she said.   Harrington is now running
