'The Boy': Best Seen by Mistake
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
03:22PM / Thursday, January 28, 2016

There is only one reason or excuse to see director William Brent Bell's mediocre horror film, "The Boy." Luckily, such circumstances and the manner in which your humble auditor viewed the movie in question serendipitously ameliorated what would have otherwise proved a night at the Bijou, ruined. To follow my prescription, first you and a good friend must be closed out of the movie you originally intended to see because of a projector snafu. Then, with the clock ticking and après-theater dinner plans hinging, you pick a film, any film, with start and end times that fit.

Call it the "Sometimes you Get Shot out of a Cannon Method of Movie Selection." While not

The Independent Investor: The High Price of Cash
By Bill Schmick,
02:36PM / Thursday, January 28, 2016

Since the beginning of January, many investors have sold their holdings in the stock market and are sitting on the sidelines in cash. Is it too late to sell, or would selling out be a wise move?

Well over $7 billion was sold from U.S. stock funds thus far in January. In December, $48 billion exited stock funds. In hindsight, anyone who sold at the end of last year would presumably be sitting pretty, but that's not the case at all.

There's an old saying "I'd rather be out of the market wishing I were in, than in the market wishing I were out." Those are words that surely resonate with most investors right now. And as the financial markets worldwide continue to

North Adams Redevelopment Authority Pays Lawsuit Settlement
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
10:11PM / Wednesday, January 27, 2016

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Redevelopment Authority has finally settled a lawsuit with Freight Yard Pub.

Berkshire Bank has agreed to loan the authority $160,000 to make good a settlement agreed to last year with Bay State Hospitality Group LLC, the operating name of the restaurant in Western Gateway Heritage State Park.

Mayor Richard Alcombright had asked the City Council last August to back the borrowing because the Redevelopment Authority did not have enough revenue to take on the obligation. The council rejected the idea on the grounds taxpayers would be responsible for paying the loan if the authority could not.

On Wednesday, the three-person Redevelopment Authority Board agreed

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Oakland-based, socially-engaged artist Lexa Walsh creates experiences for her audiences, and that's exactly her current mission at Williams College on multiple fronts.

With her winter study program "Mapping The Museum," Walsh has worked with students to take over the Williams College Museum of Art for a night, in addition to creating two upcoming projects with her brother, painter Dan Walsh.

Walsh's winter study course focuses on institutional critique, an art practice that casts its gaze back on the place that houses it, and asks questions about the purpose of art and museums. That will be put into action for Walsh's "WCMA At

But as an investor, you can find value in the concept of a puzzle – specifically, in putting together the pieces of your financial puzzle.

What are these pieces? Here are the essential ones:

* Growth: At different times in your life, you will have various goals – purchasing a first or second home, sending your children to college, enjoying a comfortable retirement, and so on. While these goals are diverse, they all have one thing
