How can women overcome obstacles to financial security?
Submitted by Edward Jones,
09:21AM / Tuesday, March 02, 2021
On March 8, we observe International Women's Day, a celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Of course, women still tend to encounter more obstacles than men in the pursuit of financial security. Let's consider a few of them.   To begin with, women are still more likely to leave the workforce, at least temporarily, to raise children, resulting in lower contributions to employer-sponsored retirement plans such as 401(k)s. And women are often the ones who become full-time caregivers of aging parents or other relatives. Caregiving duties can exact a big financial toll: The lost wages, pensions (including 401(k)s and similar plans) and

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:33AM / Tuesday, March 02, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Public Arts Commission is hoping to have a master plan draft ready for public comment by April or May at the latest.    "I am going to make some adjustments to placemaking priorities and reformat them to fit into the rest of the document," Chairwoman Anna Farrington said last week. "I'm going to make a final review through the document and identify any other areas where I think we're lacking information. And then perhaps we can review those elements, next time.  I think we are very close to having a public give us feedback on the master plan. Maybe if not in March, perhaps we can target the April or May

North Adams Council Picks Former E3 Academy Teacher for City Clerk
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:09AM / Tuesday, March 02, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council has selected a former Drury High teacher to be its new city clerk.    The unanimous decision to offer the post to Cathleen King was made on Monday night.    King was a founder of the high school's alternative education program, the E3 Academy, in 2012. She's spent the last few years in Salem when her husband took a position of Salem State University.    "We are just trying to work our way back to getting to the North Adams area, we have a home in Clarksburg. And I was interested in the position because I have had a great interest in North Adams ever since I came to the area," she

Clark Art Virtual Conversation With Artist
01:16PM / Monday, March 01, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Artist Erin Shirreff discusses her work and her current exhibition at the Clark, "Remainders," in a live conversation with Robert Wiesenberger, associate curator of contemporary projects, on Wednesday, March 10.    This free program takes place over Zoom at 12:30 pm.   Trained as a sculptor, Shirreff works between photography, sculpture, and video to explore the relationship between objects and their representations, and the mythmaking behind art history. Remainders, her year-long installation in public spaces at the Clark, encourages slow looking, forensic attention to detail, and an appreciation that things may not be quite as they

Baker: State Told Johnson & Johnson Ramping Up Vaccine Production
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
12:46PM / Monday, March 01, 2021
MATTAPAN, Mass. — Gov. Charlie Baker on Monday said the commonwealth has been told to expect a "lot more" of the single dose Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the month.   In the meantime, he stressed that all vaccines are safe and effective and encouraged residents to get whichever vaccine they can as soon as they are eligible and can make an appointment.   "The information on the J&J vaccine in terms of volume is a little up in the air," Baker said Monday morning. "What I'd say is it is likely we will get, for next week, a shipment. That shipment will probably be distributed pretty evenly across what we think of as the

North Adams Eyeing Federal Relief Funds to Support School Programs
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:40AM / Monday, March 01, 2021
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The School Department is anticipating an $18.2 million budget for fiscal 2022 based on state budget numbers and state and federal grants.   The appropriation would be level-funded from this year at $17,769,074.   Superintendent Barbara Malkas cautioned that this is still a preliminary budget and that "there are still a lot of moving parts."   "This year it feels a little bit more predictable mainly because the governor did issue a budget on Jan. 27," she told the School Committee's finance subcommittee last week. "So the timeline that by which we're going to know about funding will be better than it was last

Burning Crosses Across the Berkshires: KKK Thrived Locally 100 Years Ago
By Joe Durwin, Special to iBerkshires
07:20AM / Sunday, February 28, 2021
PITTSFIELD , Mass. — Over a thousand men, most of them hooded, gathered around a burning cross.  Some 200 were new recruits, there to be inducted into the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan. The year was 1927.   The place was a farm 15 miles from Pittsfield.     The first arc of the Ku Klux Klan following the Civil War seems to have permeated very little into New England, in terms of formal organization. The requisite attitudes were certainly present in the Berkshires by then; the same month that Berkshire volunteers were mustering with the 27th Infantry to fight in that conflict, at least eight innocent men of color were arrested following the September 1861 slaying

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
12:36PM / Saturday, February 27, 2021

An artist's rendering of what the concrete tubes will look like.  NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Conservation Commission on Tuesday approved an art installation of 11 concrete cylinders within the 200-foot buffer zone of the river at Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.    The 10-foot diameter precast tubs will be arranged in an arc between Buildings 19 and 25, just east of Joe's Field, and are designed to resonant with sound or music. They're the creation of artist Taryn Simon, whose "A Cold Hole and Assembled Audience" made a splash at the museum in 2018.    The commission's concern dealt not with the art but the construction

@theMarket: Higher Interest Rates Clobber Stocks
By Bill Schmick,
11:42AM / Saturday, February 27, 2021
In the grand scheme of things, a small, upward blip in the yield of the U.S. 10-year Treasury bond should be of little concern to equity investors. But sometimes, when the conditions are ripe, even the tiniest spark can cause a conflagration within a speculative stock market.   As readers are aware, interest rates have been trading at historically low levels for some time. The onset of the coronavirus forced our Federal Reserve Bank to pin them even lower. Essentially, it is why the stock market has been having such a great run. Investors have been conditioned to just assume that, if anything, interest rates might trend even lower but not higher. However, during the last few weeks, the

The Retired Investor: SPAC Attack
By Bill Schmick,
12:37PM / Friday, February 26, 2021
One of the hottest trends on Wall Street today is "special purpose acquisition companies" or SPACS. There is hardly a day that goes by without an announcement of a new SPAC, or the acquisition and merger of a private company by one.   It works like this. Even though they are called "companies," SPACs have no commercial operations, no sales, profits, or losses. All they have is a pile of cash. They received that money from investors in an initial public offering (IPO) with the promise that they would invest that money down the road into a private company with good prospects.   You are basically giving a blank check to a group of financial pros with a track
