Beset by scandals that could reach as high as the presidential office, suffering from an epic drought, low oil prices, high inflation, a declining currency and a negative economic growth rate, the world's seventh largest economy could be an interesting long-term investment but not for the faint of heart.

No question about it, Brazil is a basket case right now. Dilma Rousseff, the two-term Brazilian president and former head of the state-owned energy behemoth, Petrobras, is embroiled in scandal.

Director of the governor's Western Massachusetts office Ryan Chamberland was the guest speaker on Thursday at the bi-annual Berkshire County Selectmen's Association dinner. GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Lee Selectman David Consolati would love to take a bridge down and replace it with a new one in the exact same spot.    But, before he can do that, the town must spend a quarter of a million dollars in engineering and then perform a $60,000 environmental study, among many requirements, throughout a two-year process with the state.   He wants the state to essentially pre-package plans that need to only be adjusted by size of the bridge and shorten the approval

Bleecker Street Media Rock star Danny Collins (Al Pacino) takes stock of his life after a missive from John Lennon finally arrives.

I suspect there will be a spate of movies custom made for baby boomers as they proceed into the sexa- and septuagenarian periods of their lives. They will nurture and extoll the virtues of this mixed blessing that's certainly better than the alternative. Call them the Dick and Jane films for golden-agers: i.e. — See Dick have a hip replacement; see Spot sympathize. Hopefully, most will be as entertaining as writer-director Dan Fogelman's "Danny

Pittsfield resident Amelia Ritner has released a new children's book called 'Ugly Farm,' filled with photos of unusual-looking vegetables she took while working on a Connecticut farm last summer.

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Never judge a book by its cover, so the saying goes.

Local author Amelia Ritner doesn't want you to judge a vegetable by its appearance, either.

Ritner, who currently lives in Pittsfield, just released a children's book called "Ugly Farm" that features pictures she took of strange-looking produce while working on a Connecticut farm last summer.

It all started when her boyfriend discovered an eggplant that had an unusual persona.

Universal Pictures The Fast and Furious family's latest road trip is a retread of explosions, speed and gunfire. But this one's got cars falling out of the sky! So it's totally different!

Trying to figure out the renegade ethos that Vin Diesel's Dominic Toretto and his "team" are trying to exemplify in the frenetically action-packed "Furious 7" leaves me at a loss. Still, I'm going to have a go at it anyway ... but not for diehard fans of this hot-rodding franchise that has skidded miserably off course. Devotees couldn't care less what this O.G. (Old
