By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
05:15AM / Saturday, July 07, 2018
  PITTSFIELD, Mass. — For Paul Caccaviello, the district attorney's job is a call to service.   After 14 years as the first assistant district attorney, Caccaviello is looking to fill the shoes being left by the retired David Capeless, who handpicked his successor.

Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:07PM / Friday, July 06, 2018

You should always be able to ask as many questions as you would like when working with your financial advisor. So, before you have your annual review, think carefully about what you'd like to ask.

Here are a few suggestions:

Are my goals still realistic? When you first began working with your financial advisor, you may well have articulated a number of financial goals. For example, you might have said that you wanted to pay for most of your children's college educations, or that you wanted to retire at a certain age, or that you wanted to travel for two months each year during your retirement. In fact, you could have many different goals for which you're saving and investing.

Knight Pushes Progessive Platform, Experience in DA Race
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:00AM / Friday, July 06, 2018
  LENOX, Mass. — Judith Knight says she isn't a natural politician. She's an attorney.   She's a defense attorney who has spent years on the other side of a courtroom from a district attorney's office that operated in a way that she doesn't think is for the best. Back in 2006, her frustration boiled over when she watched the district attorney's office prosecute a teenager over minor drug charges and she launched a campaign to take over the office.    She put forth a progressive platform that includes reprioritizing the cases the office handles, pushed for diversion programs to keep low-level drug dealers out of the courts, and looked to

By Nancy Salz, Special to iBerkshires
01:21PM / Thursday, July 05, 2018

"Hannah and Her Sisters" had a scene like this. So did many other movies.

Imagine a party in a New York City home. Two former musical performers are urged by the gathering to relive their old hits. Everyone gathers around the piano and off the performers go – amidst "oohs" and "ahhs" in recognition as an old song begins and polite applause as it ends. Then on to the next song.

"Coming Back Like A Song," a new play about Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen and Jimmy Van Heusen that just opened at the Berkshire Theatre Group’s Fitzpatrick Main Stage, is a lot like the above scene only the composers themselves are the performers. The play has a few

Fourth of July: The Declaration of Independence
11:06AM / Wednesday, July 04, 2018

A reminder what today is really all about: The adoption of a (literally) revolutionary document that stated the grievances of the colonists against England and their resolve to pursue a course of self-determination — without the bindings of hereditary rule.


The Unanimous Declaration
of the Thirteen United States of America
When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent
