BCC Rededicates Theater to the Late Robert Boland
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
08:24PM / Saturday, May 12, 2018

Jonathan Daube was one of three former college presidents to join for the event. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — When Catherine Addy was hired to become Berkshire Community College's second president, Robert Boland was nearing retirement.   "I was completely intimidated by him. I thought the best I could do was stay out of his way, let him do his magic, and then kind of step in and take some of the credit because he worked at BCC and so did I. That seemed like a good plan at the time," Addy said.   Boland joined the new Berkshire Community College in 1961. A theater professional, he was chairman of the Theater and Fine Arts Department, overseeing more than 60

Astronaut and engineer Stephanie Wilson asks the graduates to mentor those who are follow them.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — College graduates are frequently sent off with a charge of doing their best and making the world a better place. But on Saturday, they were also reminded to reach behind them to help others along the path.    Stephanie Wilson, a member of a select group of humans who have rocketed into space, told the graduating class of 2018 at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts that she hoped that her generation has done its job correctly serving as mentors to their generation.   "Hopefully, we have taught you how to establish a support network,

@the Market: Stocks Look Ready to Reach New Highs
By Bill Schmick,
10:25AM / Saturday, May 12, 2018
The S&P 500 Index had its best week in two months. All the averages made good gains and investor sentiment numbers are improving. We could see a return to the January highs before summer unless something comes out of left field.   Left field has become a familiar place for the markets under the present political regime, but not all the news has been negative on that front. Take the release of three American prisoners by North Korea as an example. Kudos to the president for that one. Then there is the Iran nuclear deal — another campaign promise kept. Why are these important?   An American politician willing to keep his campaign promises is a historical event, in my

Letter: Caccaviello Clear Choice for DA
Letter to the Editor,
05:50PM / Friday, May 11, 2018

To the Editor:

Most Berkshire County residents will go their entire lives with only a vague concept of what role the district attorney's office has in the grand scheme of our criminal justice system. As discouraging as that may sound, it also indicates that the average citizen has been fortunate enough to not need the services of the DA's office.

If however, you find yourself the victim of a crime you will become all too familiar with the role the DA has in advocating for your dignity and rights. Who would you want on your side, navigating the legal system on your behalf? Who would you trust to win justice for you and your family? Would you trust someone who has never worked as a

'Tully': The Helping Hand that Rocks the Cradle
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:41PM / Friday, May 11, 2018
There is a surprise twist in director Jason Reitman's "Tully," about a mom whose domestic struggles increase exponentially when she adds a third child to her already challenging brood.   Ordinarily, this wouldn't be big news. Lots of movies toss us an O. Henry in the ninth inning, some preceded by clues, others with no justification other than that they had no other way to end the thing. Y'know, when in doubt, drop the deus ex machina on 'em. But here, everything — the plot, the message, the who, what where and when — hangs on that curveball.   If nothing else, the story construction alone deserves kudos. Not because it is nifty, but because

The Independent Investor: What's Up With Oil?
By Bill Schmick,
11:00AM / Friday, May 11, 2018
Two years ago, the experts were telling us that the price of oil would continue to fall. Twelve-dollar oil was a real possibility. The end of OPEC was nigh as well as their ability to influence geopolitics. It appears those predictions were premature.   The price of oil has more than doubled over that time, from roughly $30 a barrel in the spring of 2016 to over $71 a barrel today for West Texas Intermediate crude. Those same experts now expect the price could gain further, but there is no agreement on how much higher it can go.   The "swing" factor in that equation is firmly in the hands of American shale producers. They are the culprit of the past three-year decline in
