"A wise man once said, 'Do or do not. There is no try.'   "I don't know what that means.   "Try, please. Try all the time. Try all the things. Try new things. Try old things.

U.S. Sen. Edward Markey calls on the graduates to be the revolution. See more photos from commencement here.   LENOX, Mass. — Heroes unite.   Perhaps a hero is a Harvard graduate improving and changing the world of social work and policy or perhaps it is the two children sitting in the Shed at Tanglewood watching their mom delivering the valedictory address for Berkshire Community College's commencement.   But whomever it is, Soncere "Starr" Williams believes anybody can be a hero every day.   "Heroes can come in different forms. Each one of us can become a hero as we embark on the adventure of life. Being a hero does not necessarily

@theMarket: Have the Wheels Come Off the Market?
By Bill Schmick,
04:09PM / Friday, May 31, 2019
No question about it, the president's decision to impose 5 percent tariffs on all Mexican imports by June 10 caught investors flat-footed. Combined with the on-going war of words with the Chinese on tariffs, markets worldwide fell sharply this week. Is a relief rally in the cards?   Chances are that next week, we should see a rebound. How much and over what period of time will largely depend on what happens next on the trade front. My thinking on the Mexican issue thus far is this: Trump is using trade with Mexico to force their government to turn back (instead of encouraging) Latin American refugees from our border.   You may disagree, but I believe President Trump's

Red Cross Urges Safety Measures Around Pools, Swimming Areas
10:37AM / Friday, May 31, 2019

As the weather warms, people begin to open their pools and visit swimming areas including beaches, lakes and rivers. The Red Cross urges Massachusetts residents to learn how to be safe around bodies of water.

First, residents should secure their pools when they are not in use. This includes:

* Completely surrounding the pool with four-sided isolation fencing with a self-closing and self-latching gate that is out of the reach of a child.

* Installing a four-sided isolation fence (separating the pool area from the house and yard), which reduces a child’s risk of drowning 83 percent compared to three-sided property-line fencing.

* For above-ground pools, securing, locking or

North Adams Council Wants More Info on Parking Proposal
By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
01:22AM / Friday, May 31, 2019
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The City Council wants more information before it even considers putting seven metered parking spots to the east side of Ashland Street.    The request had been made to the Traffic Commission more than a year ago by Glenn Maloney on behalf of Very Good Property Development, which owns one of the buildings on that side of the street. Maloney said allowing parking in what is now a no-parking zone would allow more convenience for not only his building but other commercial businesses on the street.    The commission had recommended the parking spots May 20 with the conditions that there be no parking 100 feet from the Summer Street intersection so

The Independent Investor: Cost of Caregiving Keeps Climbing
By Bill Schmick,
07:05PM / Thursday, May 30, 2019
If you thought the nation has problems with Social Security and Medicare, you ain't seen nothing yet. Today, more than two-thirds of Americans assume they will be able to rely on a family member to meet their long-term care needs if needed. My advice: don't count on it, and here's why.   As it stands today, one-third of all U.S. families provide long-term care for a disabled or elderly family member. You may have guessed that two-thirds of those caregivers are women, although why it should be deemed a woman's task alone is beyond me.   If you want to look at the upside to care-giving, you could say that caring for a loved one who needs our help, is a chance to pay

'Aladdin': Wishful Thinking
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires Film Critic
05:07PM / Thursday, May 30, 2019
Three wishes. It sure seems like a lot. One would think you could solve all the world's problems as well as a few of your own if a genie granted them to you. But after mulling director Guy Ritchie's adaptation of the "One Thousand and One Nights" Arabian folktale Disney first treated us to in 1992, I'm still not certain how I'd proceed.    Are you sure you can't wish for more wishes? Yeah, I know, I know. That's the way it has to be. You see, it's all part of a built-in lesson about hopes, aspirations and the human condition, brought to the silver screen here in fine fettle.   Rated PG and boasting a bevy of positive beliefs, with special
