Ventfort Hall: The Making of a Cosmopolitan Capital
08:48AM / Tuesday, October 05, 2021
LENOX, Mass.— Prof. Gary H. Darden returns to Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum to give a visual presentation on "The Making of a Cosmopolitan Capital:  Washington, D.C. from Frontier Town to Global Metropolis."    His lecture is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 9 at 3:30 pm.   With the establishment of Washington, D.C. in 1790 as the site of a brand-new capital city, the once dirt-road frontier city of the fragile American Republic emerged from the ashes of the War of 1812 to become a political center for a burgeoning continental empire and eventually a global colossus by the Cold War era. According to Dardin, the scale and scope of its civic

By Brittany Polito, iBerkshires Staff
04:06AM / Monday, October 04, 2021
STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — Mielke Confections is opening a shop on Main Street to make the historic strip "sweeter."   Owners Steven and Trent Kinney decided to expand the Great Barrington candy operation when a storefront on the street that was famously captured by painter Norman Rockwell in "Home For Christmas" became available.   "Locations on that strip for commercial space don't become available very frequently, businesses that are there have been there for 30 years or more," Steven Kinney explained. "So when that opportunity came up, because we knew we wanted to expand at some point, this was really the best time for us to do

The following is the diary of a local Marine who served in Vietnam in 1968. The veteran wishes to remain anonymous but was willing to share the impressions he wrote down of his time there. This is the second of three parts as transcribed by Wayne Soares, with minor editing for clarity. The first part can be found here and the second part here.

April 24: Worked all night.   April 27: Am on a bunker detail with 20 Vietnamese. There's Hai – 16 years old but looks like he's 9 or 10. He pesters me all the time for money and my watch. Tries to put on an act to make me feel bad. He does in a way – "you boo-coo money. Me, tee-tee." I'm torn

@theMarket: Markets Are on the Cusp
By Bill Schmick,
03:11PM / Friday, October 01, 2021
It was another tumultuous week in the markets. Volatility spiked as events in Washington and around the world injected an atmosphere of caution and indecision among investors. I expect more of the same.   Welcome to October. A month in which I see a continuation of the last few weeks of uncertainty. The political circus in Washington, D.C., is not helping, and is set to continue making headlines in the days ahead. The debt limit controversary is probably the largest challenge investors face this month. Simultaneously, the battle between progressive and moderate Democrats over the passage of two government spending programs, will continue to monopolize investor's

The Retired Investor: Out of Gas
By Bill Schmick,
04:19PM / Thursday, September 30, 2021
Winter approaches and with it a potential natural gas crisis. Areas of Europe are already scrambling to find the energy required to heat homes and continue their economic rebound. Could the U.S. be next?   Over the last year, prices for European natural gas have jumped by almost 500 percent. Natural gas prices on this side of the pond have also spiked by more than 100 percent this year. But it isn't just countries in the Northern Hemisphere that are feeling the scarcity. Parts of Asia, which are importing liquified natural gas (LNG) at record prices, are being forced to switch to coal and heating oil as LNG shipments decline. Japan and Korea are somewhat protected so far, thanks to
