@theMarket: Corvid-19 Impact Coming Home to Roost
By Bill Schmick,
04:11PM / Friday, February 21, 2020
It began Sunday night with a warning from one of America's largest icons. Through the week, other companies followed suit, issuing warnings that the China-spawned virus is beginning to impact revenues and profits. Investors are bracing for further announcements in the days ahead.   Now that the Corvid-19 virus has been spreading out through the world for more than three weeks, some companies are beginning to get a handle on at least some of the damage that will incur to their businesses as the virus persists. Apple was the first major company to warn investors that their iPhone sales in China will take a hit in the first quarter. Since then, a number of companies have sounded the

'Criminal' Reveals the Human Stories Behind the Crimes
By John Seven, Special to iBerkshires
04:03PM / Friday, February 21, 2020
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Podcasts about serial killers are part of the modern aural landscape, a combination of the heightened interest in true crime and the ability of anyone with a computer to create a podcast. Boasting journalistic chops and professional production, the podcast "Criminal" exists as the gold standard of the genre, not just telling stories about crime, but examining the human stories revealed through the crimes.   For the last six years, host Phoebe Judge has guided her audience through crimes in history and more recent transgressions. Sometimes they have a larger social significance, other times they bring to light curious characters. Sometimes they

'Downhill': It's all Relative
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
12:42PM / Friday, February 21, 2020
"Downhill," an Americanized adaptation of Swedish writer-director Ruben Östlund's "Force Majeure," a Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film, doubtlessly lost something in the translation. Indeed, this variation on a comedy-drama about a family on an Alpine ski vacation evokes a smidgen of its Continental DNA.    Yet, in taking its uncertain path to some hoped for humanistic revelation, it seems like it'd be much happier if only it could jump the tracks from classically cerebral comedy to safely domesticized farce.   Not to say that Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell as the marrieds with issues just bursting to unravel don't

The Independent Investor: Can Politicians' Promises Be Believed?
By Bill Schmick,
10:08PM / Thursday, February 20, 2020
As the 2020 presidential election campaign heats up, so do the promises. Lower taxes for some, higher taxes for others, better health care, higher Social Security payments; whatever it takes to get elected seems to be on the table for now.   But most politician's promises are made to be broken. Once the candidate becomes the president, reality sets in and the blame game starts. "The House is against me." "The Senate won't cooperate." "The deficit is too large." "Spending is out of control."    The list of excuses goes on and on.   Truth be told, Donald Trump has come the closest to fulfilling at least some of his promises.

Williams Inn Combines Food & Brew for Youth Center Benefit
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
09:00PM / Thursday, February 20, 2020

David Fields of Wormtown delivers a draft at the brewery's 'takeover' of the Barn on Jan. 29. Patrons got to try the beer and some of the food pairing from chef Kevin DeMarco. WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The interest in craft brewing has been inspiring menus that reflect the unique tones of these ales, lagers and stouts.    We're not talking hot dogs and backyard barbecues — although there's certainly nothing wrong with that — but rather pairings akin to popular wine dinners at which both food and beverage are matched to complement and enhance each other.   Think crab cakes, Korean BBQ, cheddar cheese fondue and chocolate layer

Letter: Quit Smoking for Heart Health
Letter to the Editor,
01:00PM / Tuesday, February 18, 2020

To the Editor:

February is American Heart Month — a great time to quit vaping, smoking or other tobacco products.

Smoking can lead to narrowing blood vessels and high blood pressure and it is a leading cause of heart disease. Vaping is still fairly new and less is known about its effect on the heart. However, the American Heart Association reports that two new studies find that vaping may be just as dangerous by increasing heart disease risk factors.

So, for American Heart Month, make a resolution for a healthier life for you and your family. If you vape, smoke or use other tobacco products, quitting is the most important step you can take to protect your health.

If you want to quit

A Snowy Tuesday in the Berkshires
11:15AM / Tuesday, February 18, 2020

What Does End of 'Stretch IRA' Mean to You?
11:01AM / Tuesday, February 18, 2020

If your IRA is big enough to help you pay for retirement with enough left over to leave to your heirs, you will want to pay close attention to some recently enacted legislation – because it could have a big impact on your estate plans.

Here's the background: As part of the 2019 SECURE Act, which includes provisions to help people build their retirement savings, the so-called "stretch IRA" has been limited for most non-spouse beneficiaries. Under the old rules, non-spouse beneficiaries could withdraw money from an inherited IRA gradually, over their lifetimes. By "stretching" out these payments, beneficiaries could spread out the tax burden, as withdrawals
