SteepleCats Lose Pitchers Duel at Joe Wolfe
08:28AM / Saturday, July 23, 2016
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- It took just a little more than two hours Friday for the Upper Valley Nighthawks to hand the North Adams SteepleCats a 2-1 loss at Joe Wolfe Field.   The North Adams SteepleCats (18-18) and the Upper Valley Nighthawks (14-21) played perhaps one of the shortest games of the season Friday night.  It was a game that barely lasted over two hours in a 2-1 loss for the SteepleCats at Joe Wolfe Field.   The SteepleCats (18-18) got all they could have asked for out of their starter Ryan Tapp. He recorded five strikeouts through the first six innings and allowed two runs off of four hits. He was perfect for the first four and two thirds innings before walking Al

@theMarket: Markets Need to Digest Recent Gains
By Bill Schmick,
07:50AM / Saturday, July 23, 2016

Greed and fear make the world go round. While Donald Trump attempted to tap into the latter emotion in his acceptance speech this week, investors were mesmerized by the opposite emotion, at least where the stock market is concerned.

It is true that the markets, like the humans that trade them, tend to vacillate between these emotions when gains and losses begin to nudge the extremes. Of course, we would all like the markets to just continue to climb, but a line I read recently sums it up well.

"Keep in mind that betting on never-ending capital gains is the very definition of a Ponzi scheme."

The best thing that could happen to the stock market in the short-term would be to

05:01PM / Thursday, July 21, 2016

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Democratic state Senate candidate Adam Hinds has picked up the endorsement of former U.S. Rep. John W. Olver.

'Ghostbusters': The Graces of Wraith
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
04:35PM / Thursday, July 21, 2016

"Ghostbusters," the third film in the franchise originated by Aykroyd, Ramis and Reitman in 1984, reboots the saga of paranormal booga booga with four funny ladies starring in what is essentially a séance gone wild. Asserting that anything the male Ghostbusters could do, they can do wackier, it is a movie of moments and ideas, most of them witty, some of them hilarious.

Unfortunately, the thinnest of refurbished plots is unable to meld the cerebral with the onslaught of special effects. It gets a bit out of hand.

Still, when isolated from the obligatory Sturm und Drang, the sketch comedy crafted by the endearingly enthusiastic Ghostbusters wins our affection. Each

Berkshire Tidbits: Gather-In Celebration, Farmers Markets
By Judith Lerner, Special to iBerkshires
04:06PM / Thursday, July 21, 2016

This Saturday, July 23, from noon to 7, the Berkshire branch of the NAACP, with the lead sponsorship of Greylock Federal Credit Union, hosts the free annual Gather-In Festival in Rev. Willard & Rosemary Durant Park, formerly Pitt Park, on Columbus Avenue in Pittsfield.

Last year, the day was so hot and sunny. I even enjoyed getting my blood pressure taken by Berkshire Health Systems because I could go into a cool trailer for a few minutes. They gave me a nice, blue tote bag as a memento and to carry around my day's stuff in.

The weather is predicted to be in the mid-80s with sun and clouds for this afternoon of barbecue and other homemade foods, a basketball tournament, a stage

The Independent Investor: Candidates & the Economy
By Bill Schmick,
01:29PM / Thursday, July 21, 2016

As the GOP political convention winds down and the Democrat convention gears up, we continue to hear a steady stream of economic "one liners" from the candidates. We all know that fixing the economy is one of the major issues of this campaign but so far the candidates are long on words and short on specifics.

"If I'm elected," promise both candidates, there will be more jobs, trade, wages and growth. According to them, all we need do is check the right boxes come Election Day and the rest will be a foregone conclusion. Historically, Wall Street and corporations vote Republican because the GOP is good for business, while labor, minorities and the "have
