'Why Him?': Why Waste Your Money?
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:18PM / Tuesday, January 03, 2017

For parents of a daughter approaching marrying age, James Franco's Laird Mayhew is your worst nightmare realized. On the positive side of the ledger, the Silicon Valley mega-billionaire would doubtless be a good provider. But topping the much longer list of negatives, he is a filthy mouthed libertine who thinks nothing of regaling you with highlights of the sensual pleasures he has enjoyed with your dear little offspring. Paired with a raft of other, freethinking improprieties and all manner of distressing chutzpah, he begs the question, "Why Him?"

State Legislature Votes To Delay Recreational Marijuana
Staff Reports,
02:45PM / Wednesday, December 28, 2016
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The state Legislature voted to push back the timeline for the opening of recreational marijuana shops.   On Wednesday in an informal session with just a few lawmakers present, the Legislature fast-tracked a bill to delay the implementation of recreational marijuana for six months. The move pushes the timeline back for marijuana shops to open from the anticipated Jan. 1, 2018 to July 2018 - and likely the Berkshires will have to wait even longer.   "The legislature has a responsibility to implement the will of the voters while also protecting public health and public safety. This short delay will allow the necessary time for the Legislature to

Most of us need to do some type of estate planning, but it's especially important if you are part of a "blended" family. And the best time to start is now – before these plans need to be implemented.

Estate planning can be complex, so you will need help from a qualified legal professional. But here are a few general suggestions that can be suitable for blended families:

12:27PM / Tuesday, December 27, 2016

LEE, Mass. — Timothy Spence runs the successful Timothy's Restaurant and Pizzeria on Main Street in Lee. He has always understood that running a small business in a small town means being an active part of the community and is always thinking about ways to make a difference in the area.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A Florida-based art dealer is suing Berkshire Bank after a "personal banker" wired $1.4 million out of his account and into the hands of scammers.   The suit says the personal banker, an employee at Berkshire Bank, fell for a "spoofing" scam and made two wire transfers out of the account to Hong Kong without making an attempt to verify the authenticity of the email requests.    In a suit filed in U.S. District Court in Springfield, Jim Jacobs, who opened an account in the 1980s with Great Barrington Savings, which later merged into Berkshire Bank, says the bank failed to provide sufficient security, made the fraudulent transfers

@theMarket: Stocks Bump & Grind Toward Christmas
By Bill Schmick,
03:32PM / Saturday, December 24, 2016

No surprise that stocks took a break this week. Profit-taking from the election rally has been the main theme over the last few days for investors and could continue through the New Year.

As traders desert their desks for holiday shopping (present company included), volumes have petered out as world markets experience a consolidation. Remember readers that markets can correct in two ways: a sharp sell-off or this kind of sideways movement.

Frankly, give me a good old consolidation anytime. They may be boring, but sharp declines, especially around the holidays, makes for unhappy investors and can ruin the office Christmas party. I am actually relieved that we have had the Santa rally a
