Holiday Hours: Labor Day
11:30AM / Friday, August 31, 2018

Labor Day is being celebrated Monday, Sept. 3. Labor Day was established as a federal holiday in 1971 by Congress and is held on the first Monday of September. Read a history of Labor Day here.

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The union encouraged the development of a workingman's holiday and a number of states began setting a day aside. Parades and picnics or similar events were not uncommon in its early days; it is now seen as part of the last three-day weekend of the summer prior to the start of school in many localities. 

Massachusetts was among the first states to

By Tammy Daniels, iBerkshires Staff
02:41AM / Friday, August 31, 2018

Judging the finalists were David York, Kurt Kolok and the Rev. Mary Curns. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — This year's annual Fall Foliage Festival Parade will have not one but two grand marshals — both of the canine persuasion.    Seymour, a Texas mutt, and Curby, a dapper little pooch, were selected on Thursday from nine finalists to represent the parade's theme of "Year of the Dog."   "When we heard about the grand marshal competition, we really thought it would be Curby's opportunity to shine," said owner Nico Dery. "We also thought it would be a great opportunity to show the world that shelter pets — a stray — that

'Puzzle': She's Come A Long Way, Maybe
By Michael S. Goldberger, iBerkshires film critic
07:38PM / Thursday, August 30, 2018
We are reminded in Marc Turtletaub's "Puzzle," about an unappreciated housewife who finds meaning and identity in doing jigsaw puzzles, that if you want to find truth, look to fiction. We Homo sapiens have been doing it since time immemorial. No one's feelings get hurt, at least not until their misdeeds are exposed for what they are. So bless the metaphors — purveyors of honesty by illustration. Civilizations rise and fall by them, proving in their finest example that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword.   Building his case from a sensitively adept script Polly Mann and Owen Moverman adapted from the Argentinian film "Rompecabezas,"

The Independent Investor: How Prepared Are You to Sell Your Company?
By Bill Schmick,
07:24PM / Thursday, August 30, 2018
If you are a small-business owner and are toying with the idea of someday selling your company, you should pay attention. Only one in five small businesses put up for sale result in a closing. How do you become one of those success stories?   Where I live and work, nestled in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts, there are relatively few large companies. We are over-populated with "Mom and Pop businesses." As such, I meet and talk to plenty of these enterprise owners daily. An overwhelming number of these entrepreneurs have saved little or nothing towards their retirement.   Instead, they believe that at some point, someone would swoop in and buy their business,

By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
03:48PM / Thursday, August 30, 2018

Despite challenges throughout, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito said the administration had kept the project on the front burner to get it completed.  ADAMS, Mass. — It was a unique concept in 2011 when state and local officials posed the question: is it possible to connect the downtowns of North Adams and Adams though both a scenic rail service and a bike trail.   Seven years later the answer is yes. It most certainly is possible.   On Thursday, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito joined local and Berkshire Scenic Railway officials to cut the ribbon on the completed extension of the Adams Branch Rail Line and platform for passengers to board the Hoosac Valley Service.   "This

Labor Day: You Can Work to Become a Better Investor
Submitted by Edward Jones,
09:09AM / Wednesday, August 29, 2018

On Sept. 3, we observe Labor Day, a holiday to honor all the hard-working people in this country. As one of them, keep in mind that your efforts can have positive results. Famed film producer Samuel Goldwyn once said: "The harder I work, the luckier I get." And this same philosophy can apply to your investing, too – because you can indeed work to become a better investor. 

Consider these steps:

Work to understand your goals and risk tolerance. Self-knowledge is important in all phases of life – and it's certainly essential to you when you invest. For one thing, you need to know your goals. How long do you plan to work? What would you like to do when you

Heated Ending to DA Candidates' Final Debate
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
04:00PM / Tuesday, August 28, 2018
STOCKBRIDGE, Mass. — The buzz after Tuesday afternoon's district attorney debate centers on a last-second comment from candidate Judith Knight.   "Andrea, you have so little experience that you don't even know what you don't know," Knight said in her closing remarks.   Andrea Harrington attempted to chime in, objecting to Knight's statement. The two talked over each other as Harrington claimed Knight's comment was a "misrepresentation" of her experience and that she wouldn't stand for it, as Knight continued on. WAMC News Director Ian Pickus put a halt to Harrington's rebuttal and brought the debate to a
