Brian Herr says he'll represent the people of Massachusetts, not the party that put him on the ballot. His campaign site is here.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — In 2010, Brian Herr said what he was supposed to say. He did what he was told to do.

This time, Herr isn't going to let the political insiders and strategists run his campaign.   "When you declare and you are reasonably viable and credible as a candidate for U.S. Congress, a lot of people put their fingers into your campaign, in you. They try to control you and mold you and they try to steer you," Herr said.   "I let some of that go on in 2010 and I

The froth is off the housing market and that is a very good thing. For now, the cycle of boom, bubble, bust seems to be broken for housing while massive money follows other avenues of making outsized profits.

In the case of housing, investors can only move the market so much and they did influence the moderate recovery in the last few years when

Diane Massey, founder and director of the Berkshire School of Etiquette, is focusing her new Lenox business on teaching manners and respect to children, with plans to grow into more adult classes.

LENOX, Mass. — It's a typical situation for a child: He or she puts something into his or her mouth, thinks it's disgusting and wants it out of his or her mouth. Like, immediately.
