10:37PM / Saturday, July 27, 2019
WILBRAHAM, Mass. -- North Attleborough's Justin Neidel hit a ground-rule double down the right field line to give his team a 13-3 walkoff win over Sheffield Post 340 on Saturday at the American Legion Junior Baseball State Tournament.   But Sheffield will be ready to walk back into the thick of things on Sunday at Spec Pond in an elimination game in the eight-team tourney.   "If this was a normal game and not a tournament, we had two other guys who were pitchers who could have come in and kept it closer," Sheffield coach Jesse Carpenter said. "But we had to keep two guys for tomorrow."   Sheffield, which just finished its Western Mass tournament on

Forum Makes Seniors Aware Of Cyber Scams
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:53PM / Friday, July 26, 2019

Sen. Adam Hinds had an opportunity to bring the presentation to Pittsfield and it tied right in with the series of technology classes the senior center has begun. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The phone rings and the first six digits are local, looks like your number, so you answer.    Now all of a sudden your grandson is in trouble. He's being held overseas and the only way to free him and bring him home is to wire money to a foreign nation.    It's a scam. The caller wants you to feel urgent. They want you to feel like it is an emergency. And they want you to spend your hard-earned cash to an offshore account authorities will never be able to track

@theMarket: All Eyes on the Fed
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Friday, July 26, 2019
It was a week of chop. That was to be expected, given it was the first week of second-quarter earnings results. While some individual big-name stocks made substantial moves, the overall indexes traded up and down but ended the week about where they started.   It was largely what I predicted would happen. The same will apply to this coming week with all eyes intently focused on the July 31 meeting of the Federal Open Market Committee taking place next Wednesday. Investors expect the Fed to cut the Fed Funds interest rate by at least one quarter percent. Let's hope they do.   In the meantime, aside from earnings announcements, investors were confronted with some bad news out of

'The Lion King': Reigns On
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:19PM / Thursday, July 25, 2019
Watching director Jon Favreau's spectacularly buoyant homage to the circle of life, I bemoaned not having had a little niece or nephew on loan to give me the moppet point of view. As Art Linkletter noted, kids say the darnedest things, and a quote from Taylor or Max would have at least facilitated an opening paragraph. Hey, I'd of credited them.    But then, as "The Lion King's" joyous, action-filled and altruistic wisdom unreeled before my consistently amazed eyes, it came to me. It was a Ponce de León of the mind. Blown away by the seamlessly elegant, completely infatuating majesty of the special effects, the eight-year-old in me was, for 118 engaged

The Independent Investor: Make Vietnam Great Again?
By Bill Schmick,
05:10PM / Thursday, July 25, 2019
Funny things happen when our government starts tinkering with the economy in a big way. Unpredictable results, unintended consequences, and confusion often result. U.S. tariffs on China is a case in point.   Now to hear it from the White House, slapping tariffs on imports from China is going to change the entire equation of how companies do business. As it becomes more expensive to import from China, Donald Trump promised that other foreign countries were going to flock to the U.S. creating more jobs, more tax revenues, and generally become a big part of "making the U.S. great again."   So far, the president is half right. Over 50 multinational companies have announced

Submitted by Edward Jones,
12:17PM / Wednesday, July 24, 2019

The world of mutual funds can be confusing. With more than 9,000 funds on the market, how can you choose the ones that are right for you?

One way to start is by considering the various categories of mutual funds – and there are quite a few of them: Small Cap Growth, Large Cap Growth, Large Cap Value, Diversified Emerging Markets, Foreign Large Cap Blend and more – the list is extensive, and for many people, confusing.

However, with a little study, you can understand why these funds have their names – for example, a Small Cap Growth fund will contain stocks of smaller companies thought to offer growth potential. Once you know the goals of different categories of mutual
